An Evening of Winetasting

 

                       

Join PA3 alumni 

at an

Evening of Winetasting
Wednesday, March 20, 2019

in Vino Diversitas!

The global wine world has been homogenizing into a monotonous palette of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and Merlot.  These are great grapes, but Vineyards everywhere have literally been uprooting their local grapes, with their funky, foxy, unique taste and millennia of history just to make a wine that is indistinguishable from a wine from halfway around the planet.

           wine grapes
Wednesday's wine tasting will focus on rediscovering wine that doesn't all taste like it's all produced by Gallo.  Wine that matches a broad spectrum of culinary delicacies.  Wine that doesn't all taste like it comes out of the same box or barrel. Wine that is fun, and pushes the extremes along all five senses, as well as the sense of humor. 

        Schedule of Events

  • 7:00 - Registration, Mingling, Snacks
  • 7:30 - Brief Overview of the History of Winemaking,
    presented by local Oenophile Sev Onyshkevych '83
  • 8:00 - Tasting of 'Indigineous' wines, guided by Sev

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

“Recent Developments in Photocatalysis for Air Pollution Abatement

And Self-Cleaning Exteriors:  Passive, Affordable, Green, Sustainable”

Photocatalysis, the initiation of a reaction by light, has long held promise for commercial applications across numerous environmental systems:  air purification, contaminant remediation, water disinfection, and biofilm inhibition. When harnessed to turn interior & exterior surfaces (windows, lighting fixtures, textiles, building materials, solar panels) into passive reactors capable of self-cleaning --- this technology improves air quality.  After a brief overview of key developments in the field, Andrew will discuss: the latest third-generation applications that employ nano titanium dioxide; methods to quantify their effectiveness; and their positive impacts on human health.

First Friday Lunch - May 3, 2019

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


Noah Mandell

 

 

Noah Mandell is a doctoral candidate in Plasma Physics at Princeton University.  Noah's thesis work is focused on turbulence and transport in fusion plasmas. Fusion is the energy that powers the stars, and it is the ultimate energy source of the future - both clean and unlimited. But so far, harnessing it has remained elusive. Turbulence is one of the main issues that makes it difficult to build an efficient fusion reactor.
