Abstract: Strangeness and other Flavors as a QGP Probe: A New Twist on an Old Story

I discuss processes that change the flavor of leading jet partons in heavy ion collisions and the possibility they offer to extract information about the underlying medium. I focus on the identity crisis of 'quark' and 'gluon' jets and the excess production of photons. I conclude with the proposal that the strangeness content of jets might be a very good probe for the quark gluon plasma at RHIC.
