Hello all.

I just wanted to post some information here, in case anyone is interested.

I have just started a blog on another site that is going to be a survival guide (of sorts) to college.  I already have my first entry up, which is about a few methods for earning money while in college, other than a part-time job in a store.

I would appreciate it if you could check it out, and let me know if you found it to be helpful. :)  Comments and suggestions are always welcome, and I'm going to try to be updating the blog on a daily or weekly basis, (depending on how many ideas for topics I get).

Thanks for your time.

Go here to see the blog.

Time:5:39 pm.

The Gender Public Advocacy Coalition is pleased to announce the release of its 2008 GENIUS Survey in partnership with Ernst & Young. GenderPAC works to ensure that classrooms, communities and workplaces are safe for everyone to learn, grow and succeed.

The Gender Equality National Index for Universities & Schools (GENIUS), GenderPAC’s most recent effort to end discrimination and promote awareness, encourages colleges and universities to recognize the benefits of a GenderSAFEtm campus - supportive equitable and protective for all students. Choosing to participate in GENUIS sends a strong public statement that bullying or discriminating based on the race, sex or gender of a student, faculty, or staff member is not tolerated at your institution

Fill out the survey at: www.gpac.org/GENIUS2008survey, and make sure that we have data for as many schools as possible. Your voice will help us continue to work towards a safe and welcoming environment for every student.

*While we greatly appreciate the interest taken in GENIUS by students, staff, and faculty at academic institutions outside of the United States, at this time GENIUS is only able to track schools based in the U.S.

Subject:RIC Dance Company Spring Concert (review/teaser)
Posted by:lorele.
Time:12:59 am.
Rhode Island College Dance Company 49th Annual Spring Concert Series
Roberts Auditorium, Nazarian Center for the Performing Arts
Thursday, 28 February, 8 PM
Friday, 29 February, 8 PM
Saturday, 1 March, 8 PM
Sunday, 2 March, 2 PM
General Admission; $5 Student/Senior Discount with ID

From the "Soulowork" of Andrea Woods' A Love Supreme to the colorful exuberance of Michael's Big Adventure to the comical dirge of SPEW, the RIC Dance Company's 49th Annual Spring Concert Series brings to light local artists, RIC alumni, and established choreographers.

A Love Supreme echoes with deep beats which drive the rhythm of the dancers, moving in their own times, together, among each other. Crossing the stage in brilliant reds and shining white, against a backdrop reminiscent of a flock of cranes taking flight, the dancers embrace the syncopation of the music and each other. If you don't feel your body pulsating with the music by the end of this piece, check your heartbeat.

In crimson red flowing dresses, the dancers cast by Katie McNamara in Artless slowly evolve from a luscious duet (Allie Smith, Kim Johnson) against a trio performing sharp, jagged, angular gestures. Tom Waits and Damien Rice provide a haunting background as they sing of cheating; hair bound by black bands, faces mostly hidden from the audience, bodies hunched over due to the weight of guilt.

In Breath Hold, created this past fall by the dynamic duo of Nugent+Matteson, the dancers periodically engage in a breath holding contests. As the sound score provided by Michael Wall drifts along, infusing the piece with an almost dream-like quality, and Michael Giannitti's choice of a cirrus cloud projected on the backdrop, we witness relationships and connections between the dancers develop and break apart on a continuous basis. From a solo danced by Jenna Scavone, the piece evolves into a duet, then a trio, until all nine dancers occupy the space until the end of the piece, fading out with a final canon of the opening duet.

Art Bridgman and Myrna Packer's Moveable Feast premiered during the Winter Concert, and with music performed by the Revolutionary Snake Ensemble, if you not ready to dance in your seat by the end of this piece, get your jive mechanism checked out. As the dancers burst onto the stage in a variety of outfits and trenchcoats (including an infamous "Cruella DeVille" coat), the partying doesn't stop. In throes of Dionysian ecstasy and playfulness, a live camera duplicates the scene on half the stage, projected onto a wall of coats forming a human tapestry. The swinging music provides an excellent flavor to the trenchcoat-swapping fun right up until the surprise ending, which should at least make you chuckle.

Peeking out from behind the wings of the right side of the stage, and popping out onto the stage to return behind the masking, Michael's Big Adventure, choreographed by local artist Michael Bolger, keeps you wondering what happens next. The festively colored dancers perform almost like a human music box, as the piece builds up a dramatic sense of crossing back and forth between a old country western and an Italian bistro, as violin and harmonica play off against each other. A half-dozen duets form as the dancers themselves gravitate around each other, until they return to the flock from which they originated.

Amanda Del Prete paints a blue line across her half of the stage (with actual paint) as several dancers clad in thick horizontal striped shirts sing a futile yet comical dirge in SPEW, choreographed by alumnus Kellie Ann Lynch. As the sound score details the myths of the dragon, Bahamut, the vocals become raucus cries, cheeks puff up, arms raise up like scarecrows, and faces contort with disgust. As a word is roughly formed on a white canvas, the blue paint becomes a symbol of some threshold not to be crossed or touched... and for those who dare to tease and taunt, the penalty is getting painted.

The RIC Dance Company shows are an opportunity not to be missed. If you are a student and find yourself on campus with a few dollars and a free evening (or Sunday matinee), come support your fellow students. The Faculty/Alumni Concert takes place on the last Thursday and Friday of March, featuring Associate Professor Melody Ruffin Ward, and '03 RIC Alumnus Kellie Ann Lynch. The Student Choreography Showcase is held the last Thursday and Friday of April, and features works created by aspiring dance students. These shows take place at 8 PM in the Helen Forman Theatre, seating is limited (and excellent); student and senior discounts apply.

You'd better hurry!

I got handed a purple flyer for this while at Donovan earlier! You only less than a half hour left to attend this!

Promotion for the Fred J. Donovan Dining Center at RIC is serving its "FINALS LATE NIGHT NIGHT BREAKFAST" (from 9-11), FREE, with priority seating given to those who bring food, supplies, clothing, ballroom gowns, etc.  for the African Refugees living here in Rhode Island.

We have African Refugees visiting us, I guess, that took Refuge, I guess, from Africa. For why I wonder? They set up a microphone and speakers for this.

So the people who are studying for last finals tomorrow can eat their breakfast NOW, do their all-nighters, have coffee, cocoa, fruit (that the flies only land on sometimes), and eggs, pancakes, make your own waffles (maybe, if you're lucky?) and donuts and bagels and bread (like are always available in the dining center, unless they DON'T want you to try to buy their products), enough grease with extra lard (and extra portions of fat on the side) to make your grandmother shudder...  and you also get to experience the meaning of consuming this an hour or so later, when you get back to your dorm.  I presume someone will set off a fire alarm, and sewer backups, with potential extension into washroom backups.  Oh, and by the way, check your calories at the door.

Subject:Books I am selling
Posted by:whatever4.
Time:4:16 pm.

I bought this book for $45
and I will sell it for $25.

This is the text book and 2 study guide books that I will be selling for $35 (for all 3 together)

I think this class is using a different book now, but If you like science or just want to spend less on a bio book, here they are!
It is the same information that is in the new book, except in a different order.  haha... but for the price, it is worth it.
This is the Text book and the Study guide book.
I will sell both of them together for $30.

This book cost me $62.95.
It was a fun class, and this had a lot to do with how nice the teacher was.
I will sell this book for $40

If anyone has any questions and/or are interested in purchasing a book from me, just leave a comment in this LJ entry or IM me on AIM at : ninothebeano

If you'd like to purchase just one book from one of the sets, I will lower the price a bit.
Nina :-)

Please forward widely to RI citizens.

So the RI State Election is coming up for Tuesday November 7th.

Ours is still a democratic process but it only works if people turn out to participate! So with that...

Are you registered to vote? If not, GO HERE:
The last day to register to vote is this Saturday!

Not sure who to vote for? GO HERE:
Just scroll down the town you live in and it tells you who's running for what in your town. Easy enough.

Not sure what you'll be voting for? GO HERE:
to access the exact same questions that will be given to you on election day.

So if you don't know what's going on in your town, find out.
Find out who's running and what they stand for.
Find out what you'll be voting for ahead of time so you can educate yourself on the topics you don't know that much about to allow yourself to make the most out of your vote.

Hey, it doesn't hurt.
