Abacus: Small Enough to Jail, A Documentary

A4P - Princeton Area PA3 Presents

2018 ACADEMY AWARD® NOMINEE - BEST DOCUMENTARY FEATURE

ABACUS: small enough to jail 

When: Wednesday, May 2, 4:30PM - 6:30PM 

Where: Princeton University, Whitman College Theatre 

 

From Steve James - Director of Hoop Dreams and Life Itself

ABACUS: small enough to jail tells the incredible saga of the Chinese immigrant Sung family, owners of Abacus Federal Savings of Chinatown, New York. Accused of mortgage fraud by Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance, Jr., Abacus becomes the only U.S. bank to face criminal charges in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis. The indictment and subsequent trial forces the Sung family to defend themselves – and their bank’s legacy in the Chinatown community – over the course of a five-year legal battle."

Chanterelle Sung '00 plays herself in this Oscar nominated documentary.  She and her sisters Jill and Vera will visit Princeton and after the movie, serve on a Q&A panel moderated by Professor Beth Lew-Williams and Joyce Chen Shueh '96. Of the four Sung sisters, three were trained as lawyers, the fourth a physician — including Jill Sung, the bank’s chief executive, and Vera Sung, a director of the bank — and Chanterelle ‘00 who ironically once worked in the district attorney’s office that prosecuted the case.

Speaker:  Konrad P. Kording, ETH Zurich ’97, *01

 

Professor, Bioengineering, University of Pennsylvania

 

“Technical Innovations in Data Driven Medicine: 

Cross Validating Methods In Disease Detection, Diagnosis & Treatment”

 

Smart phones and other wearable sensors, increasingly embedded in everyday life, have spurred rapid accumulation of our daily life data.  While machine learning algorithms, derived from this data, have yet to make a major impact on medical decision making, they do hold promise and are increasingly used in studies of:  cardiovascular disease, falls, measuring rehabilitation outcomes in stroke and amputees, monitoring Parkinson’s disease symptoms and detecting depression.  But how reliable are these algorithms and how should they be evaluated?  Dr. Kording will discuss these new data sources; emerging methods to gauge their reliability; and the awesome possibilities they empower for human health.

First Friday Lunch - May 2018

Join us for First Fridays, a monthly recurring event for undergraduate and graduate Princeton alumni, graduate students, and parents.  On the first Friday of each month, area alumni and their guests will meet to enjoy a prix fixe luncheon at the Nassau Club in downtown Princeton.  As a special bonus for PA3, a Princeton University PhD candidate will present his/her work to the group in this informal setting.  Topics vary monthly and are always interesting!  Have a look at our impressive roster of previous luncheons


Natalie Tung '18 with Prof. Marty Johnson '81

Natalie Tung ’18 will join us as our guest speaker on Friday May 4th.  Natalie is a senior from Hong Kong with a concentration in English and certificate in Teacher Prep. On campus, she is a member of the Varsity Women’s squash team. In February 2016, Natalie founded a non-profit called HomeWorks Trenton. As a boarding school graduate, she understands how the boarding environment brings about a sense of belonging, promotes shared responsibility, and provides a safe environment where academic excellence is encouraged. She intends to make boarding experience accessible for underprivileged youth in a cost efficient and scalable way through her organization. For her senior thesis, Natalie is constructing an English curriculum that explores trauma through books written by women minority writers. She intends to use the curriculum in her program. 


HomeWorks Trenton is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides an after school boarding program to underserved middle and high school girls in Trenton, NJ. We are a supplement to the Trenton public school system, providing the social-emotional and academic enrichment opportunities of a traditional boarding school without the socio-economic limitations. Our students attend public school during the day and come to HomeWorks once they are dismissed. Here, they receive mentorship and strong academic support, participate in community-oriented activities, and stay overnight in a stable home environment. They board from Sunday nights till Friday mornings so they can re-connect with their families on the weekends. HomeWorks provides underserved students with opportunities that are typically found outside of their urban communities. We are a local solution to a local problem. 

Please join us.  As always, there is sure to be a lively discussion!


Specially priced at $25/person (or $30 if you choose not to pay PA3's annual dues), lunch includes three courses, a complementary soft drink and coffee/tea. [**Wine/beer offered a la carte - select Enhanced Lunch Ticket**]

John "Newby" Parton

John "Newby" Parton, of McMinnville, Tennessee, a member of the Class of 2018 and recipient of the Pyne Prize will join us on Friday April 6th.  Newby is a concentrator in the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs. He is pursuing certificates in values and public life and urban studies. A 2016 recipient of the Shapiro Prize for Academic Excellence, Parton has focused his academic work on the court system, criminal justice reform and journalism.  Newby's senior thesis focuses on recusal failure among district court judges. It grew out of a project in an investigative journalism class taught by Ferris Professor of Journalism, Joe Stephens. Parton investigated federal judges’ compliance with a law that demands their recusal from cases in which they have a financial interest in a party. Expanding this project for his thesis, he is searching through about 3,000 financial disclosure forms for more than 1,000 judges and applying rigorous statistical tests to identify what factors, if any, can predict that a judge might not recuse [credit to Mr. Jamie Saxon for this bio].
