EOC Spotlight: Planning and Intelligence Section Keeps Team on Track
Since the Cal Poly Emergency Operations Center was activated in March 2020, the Planning and Intel section has tracked the ever-changing situation and documented all of the EOC’s activities to keep the team informed and updated on its objectives. Members of this section have tracked objectives for each weekly “operational period,” starting with the first operational period on March 3, 2020. Since then, they've created over 60 weekly reports, updated a daily situation report to provide a clear picture of testing and cases on campus, managed numerous weekly meetings, and kept the team on track. In EOC lingo, if the Operations section is the “doers” and Logistics is the “getters,” the Planning section is the “thinkers.” In addition to managing the workload for their permanent jobs, these individuals have gone above and beyond to keep the EOC connected and coordinated: Lanaya Gaberel, Marlene Cramer, Terrance Harris, Emily Orlando, Melissa Bullaro, Kathleen Cook, Lori Serna, Aydin Nazmi, Troy Weipert, Abigail Haskell and Amy Voorhies. Thanks to them for all the time and selfless effort they put into this role during the pandemic.
COVID-19 Vaccine Appointments Available on Campus Through June 4; More than Half of Students Living on Campus Report Being Vaccinated
There is still time to get a COVID-19 vaccine on campus before the end of spring quarter. The Rite Aid vaccination clinic is open to everyone through June 4. The clinic is hosting several weekend dates and welcomes walk-ins on weekdays. The clinic provides the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine to anyone 18 and older, as well as first and second doses of the Pfizer vaccine to anyone 12 and older. (Minors must have parental consent.) Appointments are available through Rite Aid’s registration page by searching the ZIP code 93407. Off-campus, first and second doses of COVID-19 vaccines are available through the My Turn appointment system online or at 833-422-4255 or vaccinefinder.org. All three of SLO County Public Health’s mass vaccination sites are open for walk-ins, though hours have changed; those sites plan to close after June 3. Students have had the opportunity to share their COVID-19 vaccination records with Campus Health and Wellbeing since April 23, and since then, more than 7,000 students report receiving all necessary doses of their vaccine. To date, more than 59% of students living on campus are fully vaccinated. Visit Cal Poly’s vaccine page for a spectrum of additional resources, including links to appointment opportunities, transportation resources and information about the available vaccines.

Study Finds Weight-Loss Maintainers Sit Less Than Weight-Stable People with Obesity
A new study found that people who lost weight and kept it off spent less time sitting compared to people with obesity whose weight stayed the same. This is the first study to examine time spent in various sitting activities among weight-loss maintainers. The research was published today in the journal Obesity. In 2006, the National Weight Control Registry showed that weight-loss maintainers watched significantly less television than controls, but other sitting activities weren’t included in the registry. The Rhode Island-based research study includes more than 10,000 who have lost at least 30 pounds of weight and kept it off for at least one year. In the Cal Poly study, weight-loss maintainers and controls reported similar TV time, but weight-loss maintainers spent less time using a computer or video game outside of work. “The findings hopefully will prompt future weight maintenance intervention research testing the effects of and optimal approaches for reducing sedentary behavior, including non-work-related computer and video game usage,” said Suzanne Phelan one of the study’s lead authors, director of Cal Poly’s Center for Health Research, and a professor in the Kinesiology and Public Health Department. “Future research should include objective measures of sedentary behavior and activity.” Read the news release.
Study Finds Recording of Whitewater River Noise Drives Bats and Birds Away
A new Cal Poly study finds that birds and bats often avoid habitat swamped with loud whitewater river noise. “Naturally loud environments have been largely neglected in ecological research,” said Dylan Gomes, a Cuesta College alumnus who led the study as part of his doctoral research at Boise State University in Boise, Idaho. “We aimed to test the hypothesis that intense natural noise can shape animal distributions and behavior by experimentally broadcasting whitewater river noise at a massive scale.” The study, published today in the journal Nature Communications, was a collaboration between Cal Poly and Boise State. “The prevailing hypothesis for why many animals avoid noise is called masking,” said Cal Poly biology Professor Clinton Francis, one of the senior authors. “When noise overlaps in frequency — what we perceive as pitch — with a biological signal such as birdsong, it masks, or hides, that signal. By broadcasting noise of different frequencies, we hoped to assess the role that masking of important sounds plays in animals choosing to avoid noisy places.” Read the news release.

Music Professor Antonio “Greg” Barata, longtime director of the sound design program — as well as instructor of theory, composition and orchestration — retired from full-time teaching at the end of spring quarter 2020 after 35 years. He will teach part time for the next few years. He earned his Doctorate of Musical Arts in music composition from the University of Illinois, specializing in electroacoustic and computer music, in 1985, the same year he started at Cal Poly. He founded the Sound Design program, and RSVP is the capstone of the sequential series of classes that evolved to a fully staged production, including theater, musical scenes, musical parody, dance and live and prerecorded music. The classes give students the skills and exposure to the technology and media elements needed to combine the composition, performance, soundscape and staging that bring these shows to life. Spring 2020 marked the 25th anniversary of RSVP, which was offered virtually in three video installments due to the pandemic. Barata is an active composer. In March 2020, the Cal Poly Wind Ensemble premiered his piece “Winds of Change.” In 2006, he earned a Master of Pastoral Studies degree from Loyola University in New Orleans and is currently a deacon at St. Joseph’s Roman Catholic Parish in Nipomo. Barata has generously served the Music Department by chairing almost every faculty search committee. Sign Barata's virtual card.

The Cal Poly Theatre and Dance Department presents Enda Walsh’s “Chatroom.” The virtual production will be streamed at 8 p.m. May 28-29, and at 2 p.m. on Sunday, May 30. How do we learn to love one another? Internet chat rooms of the early 2000s
, — precursors to today’s social networking media — allowed people to virtually meet others throughout the world with the same passions, interests, loves, hates and loneliness. When a teenager desperate for help reaches out to a chat room, several strangers respond. But what are their true intentions? This prescient 2005 play by Walsh (“Once,” “Disco Pigs”) explores the murky potential of online relationships — from cruelty to loving kindness. Reserve free tickets here and contact Christy Chand with questions.
