A University of Georgia degree is closer than you think.

The University of Georgia Griffin Campus, originally established as the Georgia Experiment Station in 1888, has played an integral role in the development of modern agriculture. While the campus is mostly known for its groundbreaking advancements in agricultural and environmental sciences, UGA-Griffin began offering degree-completion programs in 2005. Students at UGA-Griffin enjoy low student-to-faculty ratios, and many students are able to take advantage of on-campus work and directed research opportunities so that they can gain real-world work experience while earning their University of Georgia degree.

UGA-Griffin also hosts the Office of Continuing Education, which provides innovative lifelong learning opportunities through its programs. In addition, Continuing Ed offers youth and community outreach programs, as well as conference space for other meetings and special events.

Nanobubble technology may improve soil health, sustainability in the turfgrass industry

Friday, January 14, 2022

While the old song “Tiny Bubbles” lauds the happy effervescence of a glass of sparkling wine, new University of Georgia research on nanobubbles seeks to discover whether the tiniest of bubbles can hold beneficial properties for turfgrass.

Led by soil microbiologist Mussie Habteselassie, the Georgia Department of Agriculture-sponsored study will evaluate the potential applications of nanobubble technology to control pathogens and improve plant growth, water use efficiency and soil biological health in turfgrass systems. Other researchers on the project include turfgrass and forage pathologist Bochra Bahri and crop and soil scientist David Jespersen, all with the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.

Using technology that generates oxygenated nanobubbles — which are roughly 2500 times smaller than a grain of salt — researchers will apply nano-charged water to turfgrass root systems through irrigation.

Georgia defeats Alabama 33-18 to win national championship

The wait is over

For the first time in over 40 years, the Georgia Bulldogs are atop college football after defeating Alabama 33-18 in the National Championship. The win breaks the Crimson Tide’s seven-game winning streak against the Bulldogs, and ends a national title drought decades in the making.

Georgia has come close to winning it all before, but came up just short to Alabama. Whether it was second-and-26 in the 2018 National Championship, or four yards short in the 2012 SEC Championship game.

Now, all those moments of coming up so short are over, they don’t matter. Georgia finally broke through to win the big one. Behind the arm of a walk-on quarterback, and one of the best defenses in college football, the Bulldogs are national champions.

The 2021 team now joins an elite class of Georgia teams as one of three teams to win a national championship. Now, the teams of 1942 and 1980 are joined by the newest national champions led by head coach Kirby Smart, who after playing at Georgia from 1995-1998, won a national title with his alma mater.

University of Georgia professors Scott NeSmithAnumantha Kanthasamy and S. Edward Law have been elected Fellows of the National Academy of Inventors. Including these three new Fellows, 12 UGA faculty have received this honor, all of them since 2013.

NAI Fellows must be involved in creating or facilitating inventions that make a tangible impact on quality of life, economic development and welfare of society. Becoming an NAI Fellow is the highest professional distinction awarded solely to academic inventors. According to the organization, $3 trillion in revenue has been generated based on NAI Fellow discoveries. NAI Fellows’ research and entrepreneurship have resulted in more than 42,700 issued U.S. patents, 13,000 licensed technologies and 3,200 new companies — not to mention more than 1 million jobs created, according to NAI.

“As a National Academy of Inventors (NAI) director and Fellow, I am thrilled to welcome our newly elected Fellows to the NAI,” said Karen Burg, UGA vice president of research.

Members of the UGA Griffin Ambassadors and the UGA Griffin Marketing Team created and submitted “life-size” holiday cards for the hometown holiday greeting portion of Spalding County’s “Lite the Nite” 2021 Holiday festival held at Griffin’s City Park. The festival features cards, created by local businesses and organizations, throughout the park along with a drive-through holiday light display.

The groups created two UGA-themed holiday cards on a 4’x8’ plywood backdrop, with the ambassadors’ card highlighting areas of specialty research conducted at the UGA Griffin Campus and the marketing team’s card featuring everyone’s favorite bulldog, Uga. A contest for the best card will be held now through December 20 and the community can vote for their favorite card.  Click this link to vote for your favorite card.

The lights and cards will be on display at the City Park throughout the month of December.
