Other enterprises respond differently to breakdowns. Actors and athletes improvise when events undermine original plans; the same should be true of presidential power. This paper defends adjusting presidential power to presidential capacity, and discusses various techniques for limiting presidential power in such circumstances.\r\n\u003cbr /\u003e\r\n\u003cbr /\u003e\r\nMark Graber, University System of Maryland Regents Professor, Francis King Carey School of Law, University of Maryland\r\nMark Graber is a leading scholar of constitutional law and politics and author of many pathbreaking books and articles including Dred Scott and the Problem of Constitutional Evil (Cambridge UP, 2006) and A New Introduction to American Constitutionalism (Oxford, 2013). He is co-editor (with Keith Whittington and Howard Gillman) of American Constitutionalism: Structures and Powers and American Constitutionalism: Rights and Powers, both also from Oxford University Press. He is presently working on Forged in Failure, a book that will examine how much constitutional change in the United States has been caused by the failure of constitutional practices to function as expected.

The experiments are carried out in the linear Swarthmore Spheromak eXperiment (SSX) device. In this device, a magnetized plasma source is located at one end of the device and at the other end, a closed conducting can is installed. We generate parcels of magnetized, relaxed plasma and observe their compression against the end wall of the conducting can. The plasma parameters such as plasma density, temperature, and magnetic field are measured during compression, using HeNe laser interferometry, ion Doppler spectroscopy and a linear B-dot probe array, respectively. To identify the instances of ion heating during compression, a PV diagram is constructed using measured density, temperature, and volume of the magnetized plasma. Various equations of state of the magnetized plasma are analyzed to estimate the adiabatic nature of the compressed plasma.\r\n\u003cbr /\u003e\r\n\u003cbr /\u003e\r\nThe colloquium will start at 12:30 pm in Science Center 199.

The Gil and Mary Stott Concert Fund was established in 1997 on the 25th anniversary of the Lang Music Building. The fund was created as an expression of deep affection for the Stotts by the late Eugene M. Lang, Class of 1938, to recognize their special artistic talents and all that they have meant to the Swarthmore community. Beginning in 2010, the Stott Concert Fund is used to underwrite the Gil and Mary Stott Chamber Music Master Class Series, bringing prominent New York, national, and international artist to campus for one-day coaching sessions with multiple student ensembles.\u003c/div\u003e\u003cdiv class=\"opento\"\u003e\u003c/div\u003e\u003cdiv class=\"startdate\"\u003e09/23/2017\u003c/div\u003e\u003c/div\u003e")
