NAVIGATORS & THE CURIOUS

 

Please Join Us for Cocktails & Hors d’oeuvres

 

33 PROSPECT AVENUE – PRINCETON, NJ

 

6 P, TUESDAY, May 14th, 2019

 

Speaker:  Andrew Ippoliti

 

Technical Lead, BotFactory

 

“Re-Shaping the Electronic Board Manufacturing Industry: 

Making It Better, Faster, Smarter”

 

While electronics surround us, and innovations occur daily, the actual process of manufacturing electronic devices has changed little in recent decades.  So, now may be the time to ask:  has the process plateaued?  Might electronics be made with more speed, reliability and ease?  And --- is it really necessary to rely on so-called experts to manufacture them?  The answers may surprise you!  BotFactory, an NYC startup, develops desktop machines which not only democratize the creation of electronic boards, but do so with a technology that enables board fabrication by non-experts.   Their lead developer, Andrew Ippoliti, will describe just how BotFactory does it.  Following a broad historical review of electronic circuit board manufacturing, Andrew’s talk will take us into the rapidly evolving realm of future electronic board fabrication.

PA3 Book Club: April 25, 2019

March 23, 2019 - The book club will meet on Thursday, April 25, from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. in East Pyne 111. Our selection is:

Americanah, by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie (Hodder Fellow at Princeton, 2005-06). 

Here's how it starts: "Princeton, in the summer, smelled of nothing, and although Ifemelu liked the tranquil greenness of the many trees, the clean streets and stately homes, the delicately overpriced shops, and the quiet, abiding air of earned grace, it was this, the lack of a smell, that most appealed to her, perhaps because the other American cities she knew well had all smelled distinctly."

--
The PA3 book club meets on the last Thursday evening of each month (except July, August & December) from 7-8:30, usually in East Pyne or Frist. Selections alternate, with occasional exceptions, between fiction and non-fiction, and the authors or books typically have a Princeton connection. Book club meetings are open to all PA3 members and their spouses/partners, and no RSVP is needed.

A list of all books the club has discussed can be found at https://princetonaaa.org/bookclub.

PA3 INVITES YOU TO “SECOND TUESDAYS”

A PRINCETON PROPELLER EVENT  

AT QUADRANGLE CLUB

FOR ENTREPRENEURS,

NAVIGATORS & THE CURIOUS

 

Please Join Us for Cocktails & Hors d’oeuvres

33 PROSPECT AVENUE – PRINCETON, NJ

6 p.m., TUESDAY, April 9th, 2019

Speaker:  Evan J Conte, MD

Trenton Orthopaedic Group at the Rothman Institute

“Pioneering Techniques in Shoulder Replacement: 

Past, Present and Future”

In 1893 Paris, the first shoulder replacement was performed on a 37 year-old man with destructive tuberculosis of the shoulder joint.  From this experimental last resort, using a simple but ingenious design of platinum and natural rubber, shoulder replacement has become a common and routine surgery.  It has transformed from an initial indication to treat degeneration of a joint to a solution for complex fractures and even failed rotator cuff tears.  After reviewing the anatomy, history and biomechanics involved, shoulder surgeon Evan Conte will discuss the future of shoulder replacement and, in particular, how it will incorporate advances in computer-aided design, biomedical imaging and 3D printing to enable patient-specific approaches to complex pathologies.
