Special Event Thursday Jan 19th!

You are invited to attend a special event this Thursday, January 19th, at 7 pm in UCSB’s Corwin Pavilion with World Series of Blackjack Champion Mike Aponte, a former member of the MIT Blackjack Team that inspired the major motion picture “21.”  Aponte was one of the leaders of a team of MIT students that legally won millions at blackjack tables around the world by counting cards. He provided the inspiration behind one of the main characters, “Jason Fisher,” in the best selling book, “Bringing Down the House,” by Ben Mezrich, as well as the 2008 box office thriller “21,” starring Kevin Spacey, Kate Bosworth, and Jim Sturgess.

Aponte will discuss his path to becoming a world champion, which began when he first hit the casinos in 1992 as a member of the MIT Blackjack Team after passing the team’s big player test (the BP “checkout”). Aponte was one of the team’s most successful big players, and also took on an even more prominent role as a manager, responsible for recruiting and training new players, as well as coordinating team trips.

Through 2000, Aponte and his cohorts enjoyed an incredible run at casinos in the United States and other countries as well. In the end, they walked away with millions. On their journey they met famous athletes, Hollywood stars and some of the wealthiest individuals on the planet. The crew partied at the hottest nightclubs, stayed in posh suites and lived a lifestyle of which most only dream. Their success was made possible by hard work and a business-like approach. The team practiced rigorously to stay sharp, endured a brutal travel schedule and meticulously planned their blackjack assaults.

After his professional card counting career, Aponte went on to win the first World Series of Blackjack championship in 2004, and co-founded a company that provides instructional products and services on how to win at blackjack. In 2007, Aponte became the first blackjack player ever to be depicted on a trading card in Topps’ Allen & Ginter set. Mike now offers his blackjack expertise through in-person and online coaching and instruction at MikeAponte.com. 

***Admission is FREE to the public. This event is brought to you by the UCSB Delta Sigma Pi Business Fraternity and UCSB Associated Students (AS).

SCHEDULE:
An Evening with Blackjack World Champion Mike Aponte
Come learn his blackjack strategies and see how he and the MIT Blackjack Team legally won millions with mathematical methods in Las Vegas!

Free lecture , LAEF hosts William T Gavin, Vice President and Economist , Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis

William T. Gavin, vice president and economist in the research department of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, will present a public lecture at UC Santa Barbara on Wednesday, October 27. His presentation, entitled “The Zero Lower Bound: Avoidance and Escape!” will begin at 6:00 p.m. in the campus’s Corwin Pavilion. A reception on the patio overlooking the lagoon outside the Corwin Pavilion will precede the event

In his talk, Dr. Gavin will focus on why the federal funds interest rate target is set at zero — the lower bound on market interest rates — and why it is a trap. He will discuss how policies can be modified to avoid hitting the zero lower bound, and, perhaps most importantly for today, how implementing such modifications might help to escape a zero lower bound.

In his position at the St. Louis Federal Reserve Bank, Dr. Gavin participates in management, serves as editor-in-chief of Review — the Bank’s bimonthly economic research journal—and conducts economic research. Currently, he is studying the interaction between monetary policy and the market for risky debt. His scholarly work, which appears in a wide variety of academic, business, and Federal Reserve System publications, is centered on both theoretical and statistical analysis of U.S. monetary policy. His applied theoretical work uses computational techniques to evaluate policy in complex and uncertain environments.

Dr. Gavin is a member of the National Association of Business Economists, the Society for Economic Dynamics, and the American Economic Association. He has served as an adjunct professor of economics at Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland State University, and Washington University in St. Louis.

Dr. Gavin received his doctorate in economics from The Ohio State University, and began his career with the Federal Reserve System as an economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland in 1980. He managed the Cleveland Research Department’s macroeconomics section from 1988 through April 1994, when he joined the St. Louis Federal Reserve Bank.
