Statistical Methods for Natural Disaster Risk Assessment

IMI Public Lecture, University of Bath Time: 3.15 - 4.15pm  (Tea and coffee from 2.45pm)
Professor Ramsés H. Mena from the National Autonomous University of Mexico will discuss the importance of statistical and probabilistic methodologies for the risk assessment and financial management of natural disasters.
ABSTRACT
Natural disasters such as earthquakes, typhoons and droughts can have a severe impact on a country’s economy.
The ability to foresee potential losses is of paramount importance for emergency policies, prevention, reconstruction and risk transfer mechanisms.
Using a case study from the Mexican Natural Disasters Fund (FONDEN), Professor Mena will discuss the importance of statistical and probabilistic methodologies for insurance against natural disasters.

To celebrate the launch of her third book 'Meditation Mind', acclaimed British artist Emily Maguire is presenting an evening of poetry readings and songs at St James Wine Vaults in Bath on Saturday 30 November.
Singer, songwriter, composer, poet, multi-instrumentalist and mental health advocate, Emily's five albums and two books have established her as truly a talent to be reckoned with.  With a remarkable, inspiring story to tell, she has been featured many times on Radio 2 and Radio 4, her thought-provoking lyrics, supremely expressive vocals and spellbinding live performances winning her fans across the globe.
Described as ‘exhilarating and transformational’ (RnR Magazine), Emily’s songs have the power to uplift, comfort and inspire in equal measure.  In November 2018, to celebrate the launch of ‘Meditation Mind’, a new book of poetry inspired by her Buddhist practice, Emily is performing a series of intimate gigs at bookshops, Buddhist centres and other venues across the country, reading her poems and singing songs on acoustic guitar accompanied by her husband Christian Dunham on double-bass. 
Emily will hold a short Q&A following the performance.
Songs, videos and Emily's story can be found at www.emilymaguire.com.

Pencil To Paint: Sep - Dec 2018
Eventbrite.co.uk
26th September - 5th December


“I think that painting today is pure intuition and luck.”
Francis Bacon on Matthew Smith (1909-1992)
For most of us, our relationship with art begins with a line. We take a pencil or a crayon and delineate our idea. In our enthusiasm, we may even attempt to colour it in. In the experience of many, that attempt leads only to disappointment. We know that a painting is more than just a coloured-in drawing, but how do we do it? What exactly is the difference?
This course explores the gulf between drawing and painting and then seeks to provide a bridge between the two disciplines. Beginning with simple pencil studies, we will then develop our work in both charcoal and ink, gaining confidence in our abilities, before embarking on five weeks of painting in bold colour.
This course is open to all-comers and is ideal for beginners or those who wish to take their art in a new direction. 
The theme for this particular 10 week Pencil To Paint course will be 'still life' and we will look at how artists from Caravaggio to Cezanne used tonality, form and colour to compose their paintings.
Topics will include:
Mark-making
Line, measurement and proportion
Notān
Colour: theory and mixing
Tables and chairs and a roll of newsprint paper are provided. Please bring a drawing board, paper or pad and your preferred drawing media. Materials required for sessions using colour will be discussed nearer the time.
Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available for a small donation.
