Gibor Basri

Gibor Basri is an American astrophysicist, born in New York on May 3, 1951.

The son of Phyllis Basri, a professor of dance and ballet, and Saul Basri, professor of physics at the University of Colorado, Basri grew up in Fort Collins, Colorado, together with his younger brother David. The family lived for brief periods in Burma (1957) and Sri Lanka (1965).

Basri graduated in physics at Stanford University in 1973, and received his Ph.D. in astrophysics at the University of Colorado in 1979. His thesis, under the supervision of Jeffrey Linsky, was on stellar activity, based on observations by the International Ultraviolet Explorer (IUE) satellite, of which he was one of the first users. A postdoctoral award took him to the U.C. Berkeley astronomy department where he has been a professor since 1994. His work there originally focused on high-energy observations of stars (with Stuart Bowyer). In the last decade he turned to studies of star formation (with Len Kuhi). Basri’s most noteworthy work includes a 1980 study of T Tauri-type stars, and he is recognized as a world expert on brown dwarf stars.

In 2011, as vice chancellor for equity and inclusion for the U.C. Berkeley campus, he served as a communicator between the university administration and students supporting the Occupy movement.  Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gibor_Basri

Gibor Basri begins by talking about his mother’s [Phyllis Claire Basri] lineage from East African slaves brought to Jamaica. He details his father’s [Saul Basri] lineage as an Iraqi Jew. Basri talks about his father’s education at MIT [Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, Massachusetts] and his mother’s dancing education at Columbia University [New York]. He also describes his childhood in Fort Collins Colorado, the country of Burma and other travels as well.

Gibor Basri discusses his parents’ [Saul Basri and Phyllis Claire Whyte] views on racial identity, as well as his own thoughts about his Jewish identity. He remembers his elementary school experience, his early interest in astronomy and science fiction books, and his high school experience in Tehran, Iran and Ceylon [later called Sri Lanka]. Basri describes his father’s work in physics including a Fullbright Lectureship, which took the family abroad.

Gibor Basri begins by explaining the inadequate school system in Ceylon, and meeting science fiction writer, Arthur C. Clarke while living there. He then talks about returning to the U.S. to finish high school and to begin college. Basri explains how the civil rights movement and the age of space exploration influenced him in college. He recalls his experience playing in the Stanford University marching band. Source: http://www.idvl.org/sciencemakers/Bio26.html

  • Yet Another Unlicensed Contractor Debacle 2017/07/10
    This story is late in publishing because the AOC (ahem, the judicial council) spent months drawing out our requests for information on a simple inquiry they should have been able to deliver on the same day it was received because what scant information they did provide was readily available to them. But they dragged out […]

  • Another Clifford Ham boondoggle in San Diego 2017/04/19
    More false promises of tunnels reaching out from jails to courthouses. Don’t say we didn’t tell you so because we’ve stated many times that ALL tunnel promises are false promises made to win local support of the projects and penciled out upon approval. What we find most disturbing is that Clifford Ham has a track […]

    Welcome to 2017! Yeah, we know, a bit of time has passed since we’ve been hyperactive here.

  • Welcome to the first business day of our reinvigorated 10 year run! 2017/01/02
    Thanks to the sheer incompetence of Judicial Council staff leadership, we’re going to be spending the next ten years nipping at their heels. Last week, the San Francisco trial court ruled that the Jacobs entities maintained their contractors license and that the 22.7 million that the Judicial Council should have been able to recover is […]
