Mathematics of Internet Security
Join Dr. Brian McEnnis, from the Department of Mathematics at The Ohio State University
on Tuesday, May 7, 7 p.m. at the Infinity Restaurant, Downtown Marion, 267 W. Center Street, for our next Science Cafe. Dr. McEnnis spearheaded Science Cafe at Ohio State Marion and has been the primary driving force behind its success for years. Now that he is retiring, he will share his area of expertise as mathmatics and its relationship to internet security.
The internet is not a secure channel for communication. If you use the internet to send confidential information, such as a credit card number or a password, then it is possible that your information may be intercepted. How, then, is internet commerce possible? The answer lies in a branch of mathematics known as number theory, long regarded as the purest of pure mathematics, since there were (until now) no significant applications. But today number theory provides the basis for secure internet communication. At this science cafe, we will look at public key cryptography, which uses the mathematics of number theory to provide encryption for internet transactions. Along the way, we will meet some of the mathematicians whose ideas laid the foundation for internet security.

“Team Marion” Rides for Cancer Research
The Ohio State University at Marion will be heavily represented in the university’s annual fundraising initiative Pelotonia. Pelotonia challenges cyclists to ride and raise funds for cancer research at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center—Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove. In its first four rides, Pelotonia has attracted over 11,100 riders and raised over $42 million for cancer research.
The Ohio State University at Marion - "Team Marion" Peloton has expanded to six riders in 2013: Dave Claborn, Katy Gullo, Derek Janson, Emily Meyer, Ellen Sheaffer, and Team Captain Jeff Turner.
Team Marion is registered with the Pelotonia.org website. Anyone who would like to donate to the team’s ride can donate directly to the team. Any team funds will be shared by all members of the team. This way we can work together as a campus to help all of our fundraising goals instead of picking one of us to support.
If you would like to learn more about Pelotonia opportunities, please contact Jeffrey W Turner
Senior Lecturer, Department of Chemistry, The Ohio State University at Marion, 390C Morrill Hall, email@example.com or call 740-725-6261.

Autumn Course Advertisements
New Course for Autumn 2013, Anthropology 5624
The Anthropology of Food: Culture, Society, and Eating
Wednesday’s 1:30 – 4:15, 3 credits.
Dr. Anna Willow (firstname.lastname@example.org.)
Eating will be required for success in this course.
This course will encourage students to think about something we encounter every day of our lives—food—in exciting new ways. Together, we will stop taking food for granted and instead realize that food can be a way of communicating cultural indemnity, an indicator of gender and sociopolitical status, and a symbolic substance capable of bringing people together or holding them apart.
