This post simply announces that I will be giving a Golden Webinar at 3pm EST Friday 15 January 2021 courtesy of the Instituto de Astrofisica of the Pontifica Universidad Catolica de Chile. The seminar is free and open to all but you need to register in advance if you want to hear it. There are many excellent speakers in previous episodes of this series that you can hear on Youtube.
tritonstation Stacy McGaugh is an astrophysicist and cosmologist who studies galaxies, dark matter, and theories of modified gravity. He is an expert on low surface brightness galaxies, a class of objects in which the stars are spread thin compared to bright galaxies like our own Milky Way. He demonstrated that these dim galaxies appear to be dark matter dominated, providing unique tests of theories of galaxy formation and modified gravity. Professor McGaugh is currently the chair of the Department of Astronomy at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, and director of the Warner and Swasey Observatory. Previously he was a member of the faculty at the University of Maryland, having also held research fellowships at Rutgers, the Department of Terrestrial Magnetism of the Carnegie Institution of Washington, and the Institute of Astronomy at the University of Cambridge after earning his Ph.D. from the University of Michigan.

Is there going to be a recording that can be viewed later? I unfortunately couldn’t be present for most of the talk.
@Mark Huisjes It is already up on their YouTube channel. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RiwZKe5G7gA
I also watched the first in the series (Jim Peebles) and as Tracy says he is in very good company.
That’s weird; it is now showing as private. I must have caught it just after they put it up. Anyway the link should work in the future.
My understanding is that yes, there should be an active link to the recording Soon (nebulously defined).
Should show up here i guess: https://www.youtube.com/c/Astrof%C3%ADsicaUC/videos?view=0&sort=dd&flow=grid
The Suzanne Staggs video, which is the most recently uploaded there, was from an October 23rd webinar, so you are probably looking at a 3 month delay. Having to create two versions for YouTube (one in English and one in Spanish) doesn’t help. On the live webinar feed of Stacy’s talk, they were saying that people listening to the simultaneous translation into Spanish were having problems with the sound quality (there should have been two audio channels, one in English (Stacy) and one in Spanish).
I asked today, by mail, the info I got is that they will put it in their You Tube channel, “in the coming days”….
Your new paper is too cute for words! https://arxiv.org/abs/2101.11644
In the category of things you shouldn’t need to say, but apparently do.

Indeed, as has often been said, there are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies and Bayesian statistics.
