Transcript: Biography Petters teaches quantitative finance in the Fuqua School of Business and works with MBA students to promote social entrepreneurship in science and technology in Belize and the developing world. He currently holds the Benjamin Powell endowed Chair at Duke University. Petters's work and life were profiled in the New York Times, on NOVA, and at Big Think. Petters was the only signatory of the Group of 88 who ran controversial ads during the 2006 Duke University lacrosse case to apologize for the group's ads after all players were declared innocent. information about him Following his 1991-2001 body of mathematical lensing work, Petters turned to more astrophysical lensing issues from 2002-2005. In collaboration with astronomers, he applied some of the mathematical theory in to help develop a practical diagnostic test for the presence of dark substructures in galaxies lensing quasars; classify the local astrometric (centroid) and photometric curves of an extended source when it crosses fold and cusp caustics due to generic lenses; predict the quantitative astrometric curve's shape produced by Galactic binary lenses. The classified local properties of the astrometric curves revealed a characteristic S-shape for fold crossings, parabolic and swallowtail features for cusp crossings, and a jump discontinuity for crossings over the fold arcs merging into a cusp. A formula for the size of the jump was also found. Petters is renowned for his pioneering work in the mathematical theory of gravitational lensing. Over the ten year period from 1991–2001, Petters systematically developed a mathematical theory of weak-deflection gravitational lensing, beginning with his 1991 MIT Ph.D. thesis on "Singularities in Gravitational Microlensing" and followed by the 12 papers below. The papers resolved an array of theoretical problems in weak-deflection gravitational lensing covering image counting, fixed-point images, image magnification, image time delays, local geometry of caustics, global geometry of caustics, wavefronts, caustic surfaces, and caustic surfing. His work culminated with a 2001 mathematical tome that, among other things, systematically created a framework of stability and genericity for k-plane gravitational lensing. The book drew upon powerful tools from the theory of singularities and put the subject of weak-deflection k-plane gravitational lensing on a rigorous and unified mathematical foundation. During 2005-2007, Petters collaborated with astronomers and physicists to explore gravitational lensing in directions beyond its traditional confines in astronomy. In a series of three mathematical physics papers (2005–2006) with the astronomer Keeton, he utilized higher-order gravitational lensing effects by compact bodies to test different theories of gravity with Einstein's general theory of relativity among them. The first two papers computed beyond the standard weak-deflection limit the first- and second-order corrections to the image positions, magnifications, and time delays due to lensing in general relativity and alternative gravitational theories describable within the PPN formalism, and even determined lensing invariants for the PPN family of models. Their findings were applied to the Galactic black hole, binary pulsars, and gravitational microlensing scenarios to make testable predictions about lensed images and their time delays. The third paper took on the difficult issue of how to test hyperspace models like braneworld gravity that postulate an extra dimension to physical space. The paper developed a semi-classical wave theory of braneworld black hole lensing and used that theory along with braneworld cosmology to predict a testable signature of microscopic braneworld black holes on gamma-ray light. Additionally, in a 2007 paper, Petters and Werner found a system of equations that can be applied to test the Cosmic Censorship Hypothesis observationally using the realistic case of lensing by a Kerr black hole. Petters is the recipient of numerous awards and honors, which includes an Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellowship in Mathematics (1998), a CAREER award from the National Science Foundation (1998), and being the first winner of a Blackwell-Tapia Prize (2002). He was selected in 2006 by the National Academy of Sciences to be part of a permanent Portrait Collection of Outstanding African-Americans in Science, Engineering, and Medicine. In 2008 Petters was also included among the Human Relations Associates' list of "The Twenty-Five Greatest Scientists of African Ancestry," which went back as early as the 18th century. He received an honorary Doctor of Science from his alma mater Hunter College in 2008. Petters was named by the Queen of England in 2008 to membership in the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire. Petters is the recipient of numerous awards and honors, which includes an Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellowship in Mathematics (1998), a CAREER award from the National Science Foundation

Transcript: Landforms- Africa is the biggest of all the continents second to Asia. From the Mediterranean Sea (North) to the Cape of Good Hope (South), Africa is approximately 5,000 miles. Mountains run along the north coast of Africa. The Sahara, the biggest desert on Earth, is south of those mountains. It extends from the Indian Ocean all the way to the Atlantic. South of the Sahara then is separated into a variety of major areas. The hump of Africa is in the west. The Sahara turns into grasslands more inland and then into tropical jungles along the coast. Way over in the east the terrain is very different. It has snow-capped mountains, lakes, and upland plateaus. Plateaus are relatively high, flat land areas. Down south there are tropical rainforests, rivers, more hills and grasslands where wild animals live. Climate- There are four specific climate zones in Africa. 40% of Africa is covered by a climate zone produced from deserts. Warm temperatures, fertile land, and moderate rainfall make it possible for a copious amount of crops to be produced. This helps a fairly large population. The rain forest makes up the third climate zone and is about 10% of the continent. Heavy rains and warm temperatures make dense forests where few to no farming and traveling are possible. Broad Grasslands dotted with small trees and shrubs are called savannas. They make up forty-percent of Africa's land area. They get enough rainfall for farming but its rain is undependable. Civilizations- Around 7,000 or 8,000 years ago, hunters and gatherers began to tame animals and grow crops. Egypt, Kush, and Axum were Africa's first civilizations. They came to be from the Agricultural Revolution, or the mastery of farming. Kush was just an area south of Egypt known as Nubia who was under Egyptian control. A trade system had begun between them by 20000 B.C. It became an independent state around 1000 B.C. Kush then conquered Egypt in 750 B.C. Then in 663 B.C. they were overpowered by the Assyrians due to the lack of older materials and weapons, and returned to their home lands in the upper Nile valley. The economy was first based on farming. Then it soon became an important trading state in that region. It was a major trading empire for the next few hundred years. Kush thrived for about 1000 years from 250 B.C. to 150 B.C. It declined though because the rise of Axum. Axum was founded by Arabs and brought together Arab and African cultures. The Axumite ruler invaded and conquered Kush. The king made the Axum religion Christianity. Afer a few centuries, Islam brought intense challenges to the kingdom. Slavery- People who usually were debtors, captured in the war, and even some criminals were slaves. Some slaves had more of a hard time than others. A lot of them would usually work very long, straight hours on farmlands of their owners who were usually wealthy or a royal family. The other slaves probably were better off being a soldier. Different stories were told orally. Like a song or chant. One of the ritual hunting chants I read was one where the tribe leader would chant or sing the main parts, and then the tribe members would join in on the part they were supposed to join in on. Some of the stories told would be for pure entertainment and others would be life lessons. Sometimes the story would be both. Some stories would be an epic, or a long story of the protagonist and his or her ups and downs in life. Some were called proverbs, which were short brief sayings that conveys a common human truth or experience. An Epic of Old Mali- This is a story of a young man who at first had nothing but was destined to be great. He couldn’t walk until a specific day he was given an iron rod which helped him walk. After a few years he became a warrior and a conqueror. Because he had a weakness it became his greatest strength. He was able to know how it was to go from nothing to something that he could relate to others. The epic was relative to real world events that actually happened. Most Africans traditional religious beliefs and customs were commonly shared, specifically giving honor to their ancestors. Africa’s valuable natural cultural heritage was passed from one generation to the next through distinctive musical forms and storytelling. This is influencing world culture today. African music and culture has greatly affected American and International music. There are many similarities in the beats and tones we use in our music. Also, I thought it was interesting and very different from what I listen to. I noticed a lot of pieces don't have many words in them and if they did it was the same phrase over again. It's similar to the beats in the music that I listen to but it's different because I don't hear many tones in my music as I do in some of the pieces that I got to listen to. A visual I thought up was an African tribe in their villages, dancing around a campfire and celebrating something. I really enjoy the music. Early in Africa's culture, Art was a way

Transcript: The comparison between the two graphs is that the life expectancy of the female is only a little less than their literacy rate. male Three thing that I can determine about my country are that they don't have the same medicine as we do, they don't have the same education system as we do, and they have diseases that can easily spread. Literacy Rate of a male and female in Cameroon 60 Three characteristics on their dating would be careless, un faithfulness, and carelessness. The three things that freak me out are that men can have many wives, they can have many girlfriends too while being married, it's more like a social contract than a marriage. 65 80 The education models in Cameroon are French and English. Three most important things about the models are that the students learn more, they can get jobs in the US, and they can travel to various countries and know the language. The only thing different about the education here and the education in Cameroon is that they use French in their modeling. Three things I like about their education modeling is they use French, they provide vital educational skills, and they have a university. Three thing that stink about the modeling is that they have fees to get into school, it is governed by one government ministry, and that more males finish school than females. Three "did I know facts?" is... 1. Cameroon is in Africa. 2. it can get very hot there. 3. They speak French. What surprised me the most was that their economy is doing very well. Their GDP per-capita is growing an average 4% per year. What freaked me out was that they have a lot of rodents because I am really scared of them. 55 Marley McIntosh Global Studies 11/26/11 Cameroon The most popular form of recreation in Cameroon is soccer, handball, volleyball, and basketball. Traditional board games are common also. Their diet includes staples such as corn, millet, cassava, groundnuts, potatoes, plantains, yams and rice. Meat is a luxury in Cameroon and also most of Africa. Four major holidays in my country are New Years Day, Youth Day, Labor Day, and Unification Day. New years represents the new year starting. Youth Day is to celebrate their youth. Labor Day is dedicated to all of the working citizens, and Unification Day is to celebrate the union between th French and British in 1972. 75 The green on the Cameroon flag represents the forest vegitation in southern cameroon. the red means independence and unity. Yellow represents the sun sun as happiness and the savannas in the north. The star also symbolizes the unity in the country. It was adopted on May 20, 1975. 55 60 50 female The name of the currency is franc. The conversion from a US dollar to a franc is about 480. Right now in my country it is 5:16 AM. Three main dishes in my country are fried fish in peanut sauce, mbanga(palm nut soup), and poulet.(spiced chicken) One of the main dishes that scares me is Ndole because it contains oxtail, which doesn't sound good. Cameroonians speak several languages, but the most common ones are English and French. Four famous people from my country are Manu Dibango, Samuel Eto'o Fils, Roger Milla, and Francois Babey.
