1:30 pm-3:30 pmCreate AcroForms w/ Acrobat Pro ARCHITECTURE HALL
You are already familiar with paper forms: documents with blanks that people fill in and deliver to the appropriate person or organization. An Adobe PDF form is a computer-based version of a form, which can either be distributed through email or CDs, or published on a website. PDF files can be designed as interactive forms streamlining the process of filling out a form and of collecting form information. Filling in a form can be done in either Acrobat or the free Adobe Reader. We will learn how to convert paper forms to interactive PDF forms, adding text fields, check boxes and buttons, and then distribute the forms. We'll look at how to track and manage forms.

7:00 pmSci Pop! Where Science Intersects Pop Culture LOVE LIBRARY SOUTH
The vampire has evolved over the past centuries in countless directions, moving in popular culture from an evil being to a more humanized character. After all the years, people around the world are still fascinated by vampires and the ideas behind vampirism. Although there is no scientific evidence for vampires, there is some scientific basis for vampire folklore. This lecture will address various vampire-like behaviors that can be explained by medical conditions, such as Porphyria and Xeroderma Pigmentosum. Animals that prefer the “vampire lifestyle” will also be discussed. Other topics to be addressed in this lecture include the chemistry behind garlic (vampire’s nemesis) and the possibility of having hybrid species (dhampir).
