UNLV Gaming Podcast 5: Jacob Avery

By David G. Schwartz on March 12, 2009 4:11 PM | Permalink

The fifth episode of the UNLV Gaming Research podcast series is up, and it's a great one: Jacob Avery, our February 2009 Research Fellow, talks about his sociological research into poker, which started in an Atlantic City card room and has taken him to UNLV Special Collections' Reading Room.

Avery, a graduate student in sociology at the University of Pennsylvania, has made excellent use of the collections here at UNLV, integrating them with his field notes to create a fascinating analysis of the "action" at the poker table. I hope to see more fine work from him in the future.

Las Vegas building wins AIA/COTE top ten award

By Jeanne Brown on January 26, 2007 1:08 PM | Permalink
The Regional Animal Campus by Tate Snyder Kimsey Architects of Las Vegas was the winner of one of the 2006 top ten green projects awards from AIA's Committee on the Environment. The AIA/COTE description of the project is at http://aiatopten.org/hpb/overview.cfm?ProjectID=658 More information on the Architecture Studies Library web pages on this project can be found at http://www.library.unlv.edu/arch/aia/awa2005/b05065.html and in the Architects and Buildings Database at http://www.library.unlv.edu/arch/archdb/arch.php The news release came out in April of 2006, so this is not exactly news. But it was brought to my attention lately that it is important to highlight what we are doing in Las Vegas to forward the green agenda. This project is one outstanding example.
