June 2019, No.147

The CAHSLA year wrapped up with the annual picnic held at French Park on June 26th. The picnic was well attended and all enjoyed the good food and good company, especially your outgoing president. I’ve been “missing from action” since the end of April when I fell and fractured my right shoulder and wrist on my way to the CAHSLA Rhinegeist tour. After surgery on both, I’ve been in recovery ever since. I’m happy to report that healing has progressed to the point where I no longer have any weight restrictions, I am off pain meds and able to drive again. Hallelujah! There’s nothing like a major life event to make one aware of the kindness and generosity of friends and colleagues.

I have always appreciated the professional support of my CAHSLA colleagues and the friendships that have evolved over the years. This support and kindness was particularly evident after my fall. So I am very grateful to all for the supportive messages, assistance, and visits.

I also want to recognize the wonderful program committee for the great programs they put together this year. In addition to the membership meeting at the Lloyd Library, the holiday party at the Clifton Public Library, and the French Park picnic, programs included visiting 80 Acres Farms, a UC Viz Lab Wall demo, and a tour of the Rhinegeist Brewery. Many thanks to Cara Yurkowski and Steven Pfeiffer, co-chairs, Sara Craycroft, Amanda Fay, Amy Koshoffer, Lisa McCormick, Jennifer Pettigrew, and Jennifer Steinhardt. They had great ideas and flexibility about changing plans as needed. There were so many good ideas that I suspect some will carry over into the coming year.

The annual picnic brings the CAHSLA year to a close and is also the time when outgoing officers are recognized and incoming officers announced. Coming directly from PT, I arrived a bit late and was so happy to see everyone that I neglected to do either officially. So I want to sincerely thank CAHSLA’s outgoing officers for their service this year. Vice President/President Elect: Emily Kean, Treasurer: Cara Yurkowski, and Secretary: Jennifer Pettigrew. I also want to acknowledge our faithful Chronicle editors: Lisa McCormick and Barbarie Hill. The Chronicle keeps us all informed and amused throughout the year. We appreciate your dedication and editing skills!

Now to announce the incoming CAHSLA officers (drum roll please): President: Emily Kean, Vice-President/President-Elect: Jennifer Pettigrew, Treasurer: Cara Yurkowski, and Secretary: Lisa McCormick! We applaud you.

Stay tuned for the upcoming 2019-2020 CAHSLA year. Members, consider volunteering for the Program Committee. It’s a great way to get more involved with CAHSLA and colleagues at other libraries.

It’s been a good year. Thank you!

Edith Starbuck, Outgoing CAHSLA President

CAHSLA'S Annual Picnic/End of the Year Meeting was held at the French Park Shelter, Amberley Village. The evening was dry and balmy after a week of rain and cool weather. CAHSLA-provided pulled pork and chicken from City Barbeque. In addition, we enjoyed a delicious assortment of sides and desserts brought by members. No one left hungry! It was good to see retired member Sandra Mason and to welcome several guests. We were all charmed by our youngest guest, Violet Grigg. And, we thoroughly enjoyed our well-behaved canine guests.

Cara Yurkowski presented Edith Starbuck, President, with a gift card to Ruth’s Parkside Cafe in gratitude for her service and leadership. Edith thanked each of the members of the Executive Committee with an Amazon gift card.

Other CAHSLA business discussed included a reminder about the Executive Committee’s upcoming meeting later in the summer and to submit your end-of-the-year reports to Lisa McCormick.

A big thanks to Cara Yurkowski and Steve Pfeiffer and the rest of the Programming Committee for organizing the picnic and this year's events!

 Developing Women Leaders – Learning to Lead
Over the past year, I have been involved with several programs focused on leadership. In May, I completed a year-long program called UC Women Lead. This provost sponsored program for UC women staff and faculty guides the participants through monthly topics that define leadership. In addition to the monthly meetings, we had several on-going tasks to finish. First, participants had to design and carry out an experiment that explored making changes in one of four areas of a leader’s life – Family/Home, Work/Career, Community/Society, and Self. We also met monthly with one other member of the cohort who would be our accountability partner to keep us on track and offer an ear or feedback about our experiment. Second, each participant got two coaching sessions with Erin Owens who was engaged to help the cohort design and implement the experiments. And lastly the cohort took on a year-long service project. Some years, the whole group did the same project and in others, such as in our year, the staff and faculty tackled two projects.

This year’s staff project explored paid paternity leave for staff and the faculty researched why women faculty at UC do not go up for full professorship as often as their male counterparts. The hope is that both projects will result in changes in culture and policy at UC to improve working life for UC employees. We presented the findings for each project to the group at a graduation dinner in May and will present to UC Administration in July.

The second leadership program I participated in was the TRELIS program. This is an NSF-funded leadership program for Women in Geospatial Higher Education facilitated by the University Consortium for Geographic Information Sciences. Over a weekend in Washington DC, I and fifteen other faculty members from universities from Alaska to New York engaged with women leaders in GIS research and education. Dawn Wright Chief Scientist for ESRI (better known as Deep Sea Dawn) and professor of Geography and Oceanography at Oregon State University gave a great keynote talk about her path to leadership and how she overcame many challenges and took risks to become the thought leader she is today. For the next two days, we addressed major topics such as Career Trajectory, Obstacles and Challenges, Mentorship, Work-Life Integration, Communication & Language, Understanding Different Points of View and Leadership for the future.

The program capped off with a trip to the Library of Congress led by Kathy Hart, Supervisor, Reference Team and Reading Room, Geography & Map Division. As TRELIS fellows, we also attended the UCGIS symposium also held in Washington entitled “The Geospatial Humanities: Transdisciplinary Opportunities for the GIScience Community”.

These two experiences shared many common themes and came at them from different angles with different rhythms. Both experiences strengthened my academic identity and empowered me to put myself forth. I am grateful to both UC and UCGIS for the chance to learn and grow, and look forward to putting my new-found skills and outlook to use.

Opinion: Treat False Medical Information Like a Cyberattack
Two Duke University clinicians authored a viewpoint piece for JAMA – Journal of the American Medical Association* advocating that government and law enforcement entities employ “an active cyber response plan” to counter medical misinformation. Citing threats to national and global public health, Duke cardiologist Robert Califf, MD and Eric Perakslis, PhD, a data scientist research fellow at Duke, suggest that the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework's five core cybersecurity functions: identify, protect, detect, respond and recover, be applied to medical misinformation.

1. Identify the most essential health information sources for the public and practitioners to use as well as a detailed understanding of medical misinformation threats.
2. Protect healthcare information that is intended to inform the public from damage, destruction, misuse and corruption by using high-level cybersecurity protection.
3. Detect the most harmful forms of medical misinformation, like disinformation and malinformation, and communicate campaigns to cyber threat intelligence aggregators and law enforcement.
4. Respond with appropriate action when a threat is detected.
5. Recover any services that were impaired by a cyberattack. This effort should include improving protections to meet future threats and informing comprehensive educational efforts that educate the public so they can recognize medical misinformation.

Top Twelve Subject Lines Hackers Use to Trick You
Nearly 60% of identified phishing emails contained the same 50 subject lines—and the most common subject line, "Request," was the subject for over a third of all messages.  The top twelve subject lines include: Request (36%), Follow up (14%), Urgent/Important (12%), Are you available?/Are you at your desk? (10%), Payment Status (5%), Hello (4%), Purchase (4%), Invoice Due (3%), Re: (3%), Direct Deposit (2%), Expenses (2%), and Payroll (2%).

Final Thought

“Before you speak, let your words pass through three gates:
At the first gate, ask yourself “Is it true?”
At the second gate ask, “Is it necessary?”
At the third gate ask, “Is it kind?”
