Staff Notes Daily Announcements

A video recording and text from the November 29 NCAR/CISL tutorial on using the Globus command line interface (CLI) are now available, along with new script examples, on the CISL web site. The CLI enables programmatic access to NCAR and external data endpoints, including the new NCAR Campaign Storage system.

See the Globus CLI tutorial page to review the presentation and other materials. Topics covered include:

  • Initiating, monitoring, and modifying transfers between endpoints
  • Incorporating CLI commands into data mover scripts
  • Best practices for creating Globus workflows at NCAR
  • Strategies for using Campaign Storage

NCAR labs’ storage managers and project leads at universities that have Campaign Storage allocations can provide information about use of those storage spaces. Users can also contact cislhelp@ucar.edu for assistance with new workflows and using Globus.

Monday, December 3, 2018 to Wednesday, December 12, 2018

Colorado’s data privacy laws have recently changed and this impacts how we handle Personal Identifying Information (PII) at UCAR. The Office of General Counsel (OGC) is actively working with groups in UCAR Operations (including Human Resources and Finance) who regularly handle PII to inventory and assess PII practices.  In the coming months we will be meeting with all labs and programs to conduct a similar assessment and share guidelines and best practices on handling PII.  The OGC has revised UCAR Policies 6-2 Employee Personal Records and 3-3 Records Management to comply with Colorado law. Revisions to 6-2 include streamlining the definition of PII and adding language about disposal of electronic and physical records containing PII.  Changes to 3-3 include adding references to electronic records, language around disposal of all PII and referencing other related policies, such as Policy 1-7 Information Security.   

If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to reach out to Mary Helen Matthews at maryhm@ucar.edu or x8615.

Cut Paper Wildlife Sculptures by Tiffany Miller Russell

Tiffany Miller Russell’s paper sculptures create inviting glimpses of familiar worlds that display a heightened sense of reality. Peering into a shadowbox holds its own kind of magic, encouraging memories of similar moments in our lives when we have been overwhelmed with curiosity and wonder. These works are created from specialty art papers, which are cut flat and then shaped by hand, with an intent to create sculpture that resembles painting. Tiffany finds inspiration in nature and the diversity of life, especially the animal kingdom. Her work explores the interconnected relationship of animals to the larger world, from the daily ecosystem the creatures encounter, to their use as cultural and artistic icons.

Tiffany’s paper sculptures have won her numerous national awards, including from the Artists’ Magazine and the Society of Animal Artists. Two of her works are included in the permanent Contemporary Art collection of the Cheyenne Frontier Days Old West Museum.

Watercolor Paintings by Nancy Sullo

Nancy Sullo has a particular passion for painting people in watercolor. She aims for fresh and lively portrayals of her subjects, making use of lighting, color, and atmosphere to achieve this. Her subjects come from photos she’s taken, both recently and well in the past. All are a part of her life in some way. The subjects include old and young, family and friends, strangers who cross her path and people she’s met in Central America and Mexico.

This exhibit, “Life Studies,” is a celebration of the many aspects of humanity seen through Nancy’s lens and interpreted through her brush.

Opening Art Reception: Thursday November 8th from 5:30 – 8:30 pm in the Mesa Lab cafeteria. Light appetizers will be served. Come meet the artists and be inspired by their beautiful artwork!

Both artists work will be on display in the Community Art Galleries at the NCAR Mesa Lab. Preview all artists work on the NCAR/UCAR Community Art Calendar: http://scied.ucar.edu/exhibits/community-art-program
