Gold Code -- Know What's in Your Cup

If you decide to have an alcoholic beverage, make sure to measure the amount of alcohol you put in the drink. Avoid taking drinks from someone you don't know or from communal bowls as you may not be able to accurately measure the amount of alcohol in the drink. Have a system for keeping track of the number of drinks you consume.
-------
The Gold Code is an awareness campaign to educate the campus community on responsible drinking. While we recognize that not all students choose to consume alcohol (24% of UMD students choose not to drink alcohol, National College Health Assessment Spring 2014) we want to make sure that if you do choose to drink, you choose to drink responsibly.

22. (PHYSICS COLLOQUIUM) Quantum Computing and the Entanglement Frontier

When: Tuesday, October 21, 2014 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Where: Physics : PSC Lobby
Event Type(s): Colloquium

The quantum laws governing atoms and other tiny objects seem to defy common sense, and information encoded in quantum systems has weird properties that baffle our feeble human minds. John Preskill, California Institute of Technology, will explain why he loves quantum entanglement, the elusive feature making quantum information fundamentally different from information in the macroscopic world. By exploiting quantum entanglement, quantum computers should be able to solve otherwise intractable problems, with far-reaching applications to cryptology, materials science, and medicine. Preskill is less weird than a quantum computer, and easier to understand.
