Volunteer Opportunity with Gary DADs Club

The IU Office for P-16 Research and Collaboration needs approximately 12 IU students who aren’t going to the 10/25 Homecoming Game from 1 p.m. to 3:30 to assist a group of 32 4th-6th grade boys and 12 fathers from the Watson Academy in Gary, IN with a literacy-based scavenger hunt across campus. The Gary DADs Club requested this campus visit and we’ll be having lunch at noon with the kids in Wright Food Court, and then will do the scavenger hunt starting at 1p.m., and finishing up around 3:30 so they can get to the men’s exhibition basketball game at Assembly Hall for 4 p.m.

We were going to break the kids and fathers up into 12 groups and wanted an IU student to accompany each group. Males would be preferable, but we’ll take anyone willing! Interested students contact P-16 Intern Ashley Urben at aurben@indiana.edu.

October 3 Underground Screening

Hello all, this week's screening is "Sports Night," a selection of experimental and documentary films dealing with the cultural meanings of sports in North America.

**************************************
"Golden Gloves" (Gilles Groulx, 1961) follows three Montreal boxers as they train for the Golden Gloves competition. In behind-the-scenes interviews, they talk about their ambitions and what prompted them to take up boxing. Part baseball documentary, part anti-drug film and part socio-political satire, Rob Perri's "I'm Keith Hernandez" (2008) brings you into close contact with what it would be like if you were former New York Mets star Keith Hernandez. Perri masterfully uses news reel, clips and other Hernandez footage to show how male identity is shaped by TV/film, sports and advertising. "American Dreams" (James Benning, 1983, 58m) investigates the inextricability of public and private desires through its juxtaposition of the careers of baseball legend Hank Aaron and would-be assassin Arthur Bremer.
**************************************

The underground film series is sponsored by Indiana University's Department of Communication and Culture. All screenings are on alternating Fridays at 7 p.m. in room 251 of the Radio-TV building on the IU campus. All screenings are free and open to the public, and free parking is ample in the lot adjacent to the building, provided you clearly display an underground flyer on the dashboard of your vehicle.

Challenges of World-Class Schooling in Japan and China

Prof. Heidi Ross (Education Policy) & Prof. Richard Rubinger (EALC)

EALC E497/ EDUC F401

W 1:00-3:45pm

COURSE AND STUDY TOUR DESCRIPTION
This course and study tour are designed to introduce educational challenges and reform in contemporary China and Japan, from a comparative perspective. One of the important themes throughout the semester will be considering similarities and differences between the two educational systems. A brief examination of pre-modern cultural and educational legacies in China and Japan will set the stage for our exploration of the extraordinary experiences of China and Japan in creating 21st-century schools to meet global challenges and the needs of their changing societies. As we study important cultural and educational issues, we will continue to draw explicit comparisons between the educational practices, achievements, and problems of these two great East Asian societies. Throughout the course students will be working on their research projects (15–20 page paper), which they will present in China. The highlight of this class will be a 12- to 14-day study tour to Japan and China. This study tour is a course requirement and tentatively will take place from May 11 to May 25, 2009. Due to the generosity of a Freeman Foundation grant, we are able to keep the cost of the study tour (including flights and hotels!) for each student to $1,000. On the study tour, we will be visiting schools and cultural sites in Kyoto, Shanghai, and Beijing.

A $600 deposit for this study tour will be due by November 10, 2008.

COURSE GOALS—to help students:

--appreciate the cultures upon which contemporary educational practice in East Asia is based;
--understand the ways in which China and Japan differ with respect to educational ideology and practice;
--develop a beginning appreciation of how educational systems implement education reforms and how culture influences reform outcomes;
--learn about contemporary lives and concerns of the people of China and Japan;
--interact in a meaningful and culturally appropriate way with students and teachers in Chinese and Japanese schools; and
--gain experience in direct observation of another culture and learn to put some of this experience into an analytic framework that is communicated to others both orally and in writing.

CMCL MAJORS: Let me know (tkauf@indiana.edu) if you would like to apply, and I will forward a copy of the application to you.

Spring Internships with Sen Patty Murray

Description:
The internship program in Senator Murray’s office is very structured. We have regular meetings and trainings and encourage our interns to explore their interests and talents as the internship goes on. Certainly a part of their job is administrative work—i.e., helping with front office tasks, recording constituent opinions, etc., however we make it a point to ensure that this is not how they spend a majority of their time. We place a high value on constituent services and so primary responsibilities will include answering phones, writing constituent response letters (including the use of the Congressional Research Service and other research outlets) and leading tours of the U.S. Capitol Building. In addition, our interns will assist staff in all areas by attending briefings, writing memos and doing research. We also encourage our interns to further their own legislative interests by attending briefings and trainings which interest them. Our internship program will also include opportunities to meet with staff to build relationships and gain perspective on jobs in politics.

U.S. Senator Patty Murray is looking for interns who want to learn more about the federal government and want to be part of a hardworking team dedicated to serving the citizens of Washington state.

Qualifications
Applicants must be graduate or undergraduate college students who have completed at least one year of college and whose permanent residence is the state of Washington or are attending a Washington state college or university.

Program Outline
Internship sessions are generally scheduled on the academic quarter: fall, winter, spring, summer.

D.C. interns typically work full time (40 hours per week), however part-time schedules can be accommodated. All state internships are part-time. Senator Murray’s D.C. office offers legislative and press internships. Outreach and constituent casework internships are available in the state offices.

Job Description

Interested in Graduate School and a Career in Public Service?

INTERESTED IN GRADUATE SCHOOL AND A CAREER IN PUBLIC SERVICE?

For current "juniors" interested in the 2009 Truman Scholarship competition the IU deadline is MONDAY, Nov. 3, 2008 the national deadline is Tuesday, Feb. 3, 2009.

The Harry S Truman Scholarship Foundation plans to award 60-65 merit-based scholarships to students across the nation who will be "juniors" and who plan to attend graduate or professional school in preparation for careers in government or public service. (See Eligibility section below for the Truman Foundation's definition of "juniors.") Each scholarship is worth $30,000 and the foundation assists Truman Scholars "with career counseling, internship placement, graduate school admissions, and professional development."

To compete for the award, students must be nominated by their undergraduate institutions. The IU Truman Nomination Committee has set Monday, Nov. 3, 2008, as the campus deadline for receipt of applications and other materials noted below from students who wish to be considered for nomination for the 2009 national competition. In the past, Truman scholars have come from such diverse fields as history, political science, international relations, journalism, economics, education, law, public administration, nonprofit management, public health, public policy, biology, environmental management, physical and social sciences, and technology policy. Truman Scholars are eligible to receive up to $15,000 for the first year of graduate study and $15,000 for the final year of graduate study.

The Truman Scholarship seeks to promote public service, which the foundation defines "as employment in government at any level, uniformed services, public-interest organizations, nongovernmental research and/or educational organizations, public and private schools, and public service-oriented nonprofit organizations such as those whose primary purposes are to help needy or disadvantaged persons or to protect the environment." Scholars are required to work in public service for three of the seven years following completion of a graduate degree program funded by the Truman.

Eligibility: To be eligible for consideration for the Truman Scholarship, a student must have a clear commitment to a career in public service, be in the upper quarter of his or her class, be a U.S. Citizen or National, and be nominated by his or her university. The student must also be a "junior-level student," which the Truman Foundation has defined as "a student who plans to continue full-time undergraduate study and who expects to receive a baccalaureate degree between December 2009 and August 2010, or a student in his or her third year of collegiate study who expects to graduate during the 2008-2009 academic year." (Residents of Puerto Rico, Guam, Virgin Islands, American Samoa, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands are eligible in the fourth year.) See http://www.truman.gov for official eligibility criteria.

Nomination and selection standards: Because the Truman Scholarship attracts the interest of top candidates around the country, IU only nominates students with outstanding credentials. The Foundation chooses scholars on the basis of their excellent academic performance and communication skills, potential for leadership, extensive records of public and community service, and commitment to careers in government or elsewhere in public service. (See the Truman Foundation's definition of "public service" above.) IU's nominating committee and the Truman Foundation selectors are looking for candidates who show promise of making a difference in the world through their public service.

IU Nomination Process: The IU committee will select up to four nominees for the national 2009 Truman competition. To be considered by the IU committee, students must submit a completed Truman Scholarship application. Applications must be submitted in hard copy or by e-mail attachment including a 500-word policy proposal on a significant issue related to the candidate's intended area of public service. Candidates must also arrange to have sent to Elaine Hehner one of the three letters of recommendation described in the Truman application materials. Application materials may be picked up from Elaine Hehner in the Hutton Honors College, 324 N. Jordan Avenue, Room 204, and must be returned to Elaine Hehner by Nov. 3, 2008. For additional information on the scholarship and guidance on the sample application form, including the 500-word policy proposal, see the Truman Web site:
http://www.truman.gov/candidates. For additional information on the scholarship and the IU nomination process, contact IU's Truman faculty representative Judy Failer, jfailer@indiana.edu or Elaine Hehner at ehehner@indiana.edu.

Here is some information about the pass/fail option from the College of Arts and Sciences Bulletin (http://www.indiana.edu/~bulletin/iub/coas/2006-2008/student.shtml#pass): “During the four years of their undergraduate program, students in good standing (not on probation) may enroll in a maximum of eight elective courses to be taken with a grade of P (Pass) or F (Fail). The Pass/Fail option is open for a maximum of two courses per academic year, including summer sessions. For the Pass/Fail option, the academic year is defined as beginning with the start of the fall semester and ending with the end of the second summer session. The course selected for Pass/Fail must be an elective (i.e., it cannot fulfill requirements other than the minimum 122 hours required for the degree, and the requirements for credit hours at the 300-400 level). It may not be used to satisfy any of the College of Arts and Sciences’ general education requirements, nor may it be counted as a part of the student’s concentration area, nor may it be counted toward completion of a minor or certificate program.

The Ramadan Fast-a-Thon

The Ramadan Fast-a-Thon
September 30, 2008

In the Islamic month of Ramadan, Muslims fast during daylight hours as an act of submission, solidarity, and remembrance. Fasting calls attention to those who go hungry every day, not as an exercise of religious expression, but out of necessity.

In Bloomington alone, area food pantries, soup kitchens, and other emergency food providers receive many calls for emergency food in a single day. Hunger happens right here in our city, and the Indiana University Muslim Student Union responds to this need by organizing an annual event to raise money for the Bloomington Community Kitchen.

The Ramadan Fast-a-Thon hopes to raise up to one thousand dollars for the Bloomington Community Kitchen, and raise awareness of the need for food within the city of Bloomington

Here's how it works:

* Through announcements, fliers, and media, we ask students to go hungry for a single day. Participants will sign pledge cards, receive instructions on how to fast, and on September 30, abstain from food and drink during daylight hours. At the end of the day, fasting students will be invited to break their fast with a delicious dinner provided by the MSU and local business donors.

* We collect pledges from area businesses that promise to donate money and/or food in honor of non-Muslim students who agree to fast during the daylight hours of the day of Fast a Thon. Each business will sign a pledge sheet, agreeing to write a check to the Community Kitchen for the amount committed, or donate food for a free dinner provided to the participating students. Participating businesses will receive publicity throughout the event on campus fliers, the MSU website, a t-shirt, a banner at the event, the event itself, and the local media who cover the story.

* Our goal is to convince 600 students to fast and raise $1000 for the Community Kitchen.

We thank you for your support of the Community Kitchen and the local Muslim community.

Sincerely,
Indiana University Muslim Student Union
Bloomington, IN 47405

Law Day is coming to Bloomington on October 6!

Monday, October 6, 2008, is Law Day at IUB. With 105+ schools, it will again be the largest Law Fair in the country! It is a rare opportunity that most college students around the nation simply do not have. Attending can give you a head-start and an edge on the competition. Questions? Contact HPPLC at hpplc@indiana.edu or call 812.855.1873.

Both events below are for ALL IU students: If you are serious or merely curious, both events below should be considered mandatory. If you are a current applicant or a junior, you would be making a BIG mistake in failing to attend!

1. Law Fair, 11:00 am until 3:00 pm in Alumni Hall.
Representatives from 105 law schools are here to recruit YOU! Ask questions about their programs, admission requirements, and your specific strengths (and weaknesses). Pick up material, forms, information (and souvenirs). Most reps are Deans of Admission, and making a good personal impression can be helpful in the admissions process. Don’t know what to ask? Pick up our handout “Questions to Ask Law Schools” at the Fair or from our website at www.hpplc.indiana.edu/law.

2. Panel Discussion, Q & A, 9:15 am - 10:45 am (quiet latecomers welcome) in Whittenberger Auditorium - IMU. Law School Deans from IUB, DePaul, and Santa Clara will reveal the inner secrets of their admission processes: “WHAT I _REALLY_ LOOK FOR IN A LAW SCHOOL APPLICATION!” This insider information is not available in stores! The event is always entertaining and extremely informative---so come early and come with questions.

Questions? Want more info? Contact the Health Professions and Prelaw Center by emailing hpplc@indiana.edu, or by calling 812.855.1873. Casual dress is fine.

Sept. 19 Underground Screening

Hello all, this week underground will present Alejandro Jodorowsky's notorious 1970 film El Topo.

*************************************************
Often referred to as the original midnight movie, El Topo is a mystical and allegorical psychedelic Western. Chilean director and star Jodorowsky (who has also worked in theater and comic books) cobbles together bits of ancient and modern mythology from around the world, crafting a surreal experience whose meaning is always just out of reach. The film is constructed in two parts: in the first, El Topo pursues the title of greatest gunman in the land. In the second part, he is reborn as the savior of a group of subterranean outcasts. The film's many stunning set pieces suggest a search for meaning through myth, a search ultimately doomed to fail. Though it is impossible to adequately summarize, El Topo remains, for all of its grandiosity, a striking, visionary film.
*************************************************

The underground film series is sponsored by Indiana University's Department of Communication and Culture. All screenings are on alternating Fridays at 7 p.m. in room 251 of the Radio-TV building on the IU campus. All screenings are free and open to the public, and free parking is ample in the lot adjacent to the building, provided you clearly display an underground flyer on the dashboard of your vehicle.

Nobel Laureate Thomas Schelling to present first Patten Lecture

The first speaker in this year's Patten Lecture Series is Thomas Schelling, Nobel Laureate in Economics (Tuesday, Sept. 23 and Thursday, Sept. 25).

Both FREE lectures will be at 7:30-8:30 p.m. in Ballantine Hall, room 109.

Schelling will speak on

"Managing Nuclear Proliferation" Tuesday, Sept. 23-- Nobel Laureate Thomas Schelling will discuss his views on the management of nuclear proliferation in his first of two Patten Lectures. For more than sixty years, since Nagasaki in 1945, no nuclear weapons have been exploded in anger, despite several wars in which one side possessed nuclear weapons. The "taboo" is an asset to be preserved. New nuclear weapon states should recognize that the weapons have proven useful for deterrence; any other "use" will almost certainly bring universal opprobrium. Certain responsibilities will accrue to any new nuclear-weapon states: security against accident, sabotage, or unauthorized use. The United States was slow to recognize the need for such security, as it was slow to recognize the crucial importance of designing weapons safe from attack. Perhaps China, a mature nuclear-weapon state, is in a strong position to provide guidance to any nations contemplating nuclear weapons.

"Managing the Greenhouse Problem" Thursday, Sept. 25 -- Nobel Laureate Thomas Schelling will discuss his belief that the uncertainties are great but so are the certainties of greenhouse problems in his second of two Patten Lectures. Venus and Mars show what too much, or too little, greenhouse gas can do to the possibility of life. Carbon dioxide's ability to absorb infra-red radiation can be measured. But the analysis of how much warming, what changes in climate, what impact on agriculture, on health and comfort, how well different countries can adapt, is still in progress; too little is known to predict what concentration will be too much, so no global "rationing" scheme is likely. Certainly the worst climate impacts will be on the rural poor; economic development is an important defense. An ambitious program of research, development, and exploration for new economical energy sources and locations for carbon sequestration is urgently needed. The already-developed nations will have to provide financial and technological assistance to the less developed.

Red Heroine, A Silent Film Showing Accompanied by a Live Music Performance

Red Heroine, A Silent Film Showing Accompanied by a Live Music Performance
Sponsored by IU Asian Culture Center, Union Board, and Department of Communication and Culture
Date: Monday, September 15, 2008
Time: 7 p.m.
Venue: Whittenberger Auditorium, Indiana Memorial Union The Devil Music

Ensemble is offering a live music performance with an amazing and virtually unknown classic silent Chinese Kung Fu film called Red Heroine (directed by Wen Yimin 1929). The performance consists of a projection of this amazing film accompanied by a new original soundtrack performed live by the DME. This film is the only feature length Chinese martial arts film from the silent era that still exists in its entirety! The score created by the DME will be the only modern score to be written specifically for this film!

This performance gives students the opportunity to see an extremely rare film from the silent era given new life with a brand new score by the DME. The event highlights issues of cultural difference in relation to gender, cultural traditions of music, the roots of martial arts cinema, and the traditional/updated combination of live music with silent film.

About the film
RED HEROINE (Hong Xia)
starring Fan Xuepeng and directed by Wen Yimin 1929 Episode six of RED KNIGHT-ERRANT a.k.a. RED HEROINE, the only surviving episode of the 13-part serial, is also one of the few complete and earliest extant silent martial arts films. This a prime example of the Wuxia pain (errant knight swordplay genre) often based on published novels or serials. A band of outlaws raids a village and kidnaps a maiden, causing the death of the young woman's grandmother. The captive maiden is rescued by a mysterious Daoist hermit and reemerges three years later as a full-fledged warrior, flying to the sky to revenge her grandmother's death. While generously sprinkled with anachronisms and prurient incongruities, the film remains a robust telling of a young woman's transformation from abject victim to resolute warrior.

The Aberdeen Screenwriting Workshop

at The B Movie Celebration
September 26th-28th
Franklin, Indiana

My name is Ron Aberdeen and I am a living breathing British screenwriter whose career in writing feature films. I wanted to reach out to you personally and invite you to a series of workshops I will be presenting at this year's B Movie Celebration in Franklin,
Indiana.

Improve your screenplay knowledge, comprehension, and technique and the art and craft of screenplay writing.

I will be leading course introducing you to the world screenwriting techniques, updating conventional storytelling conventions with a focus on new contemporary tools of the craft.

This course will help writers create, prepare, write, rewrite and approach their screenplay with more control and creativity. I think you will find my analysis and practical approaches to the craft are poignant, simple, fresh and if I have done my job right... inspiring.

This event is ideal for aspiring screenwriters. It is also an excellent refresher course for professional writers who wish to gain a set of screenwriting tools.

The B-Movie Celebrations is a place to meet and mingle with many notable film makers such as Lloyd Kaufman, Jim Wynorski, Tom Holland and many B-Movie celebrities as well as attend various short courses of differing aspects of film making.

I present a 'Writer's Boot Camp' on the Saturday and 'How to Pitch' on the Sunday.

All the instructional events are available at just $40 for all 15 educational session and I hope you and many of your members are able to attend. Theses sessions are sponsored by The Indy Film Co-op and The Indiana Economic Development Corporation.

More information and tickets are available at http://bmoviecelebration.bside.com/2008

SEPTEMBER 16-21, 2008

Dark Carnival Film Festival unveils a shocking and evocative panel dealing with one of the hottest and provocative topics in horror history— Women in Horror.

Featuring discussions on the female body, the historical representations of women in horror, and the role of women behind the camera, this panel is sure to bring shocking new ideas to the cutting room floor. The panel is to be followed by a double feature film screening, showing Susan Adriensen’s Under the Raven’s Wing and Jennifer Friend’s Bonnie & Clyde vs. Dracula.

This panel is sponsored by Indiana University’s Department of Communication & Culture. Student tickets will be available for the panel discussion & screening series for $4.

LAMP Accepting Applications

The Liberal Arts and Management Program will be accepting application for sophomore and juniors from now until October 1st.

LAMP students are, as a group, students with diverse interests. They are students who are interested in pursuing a major in the College of Arts and Sciences, but they are also interested in studying principles of management, business, and problem solving. They are students who seek an interdisciplinary educational experience. LAMP students are leaders who apply their passion for learning within the classroom and within the campus community. LAMP students are drawn from the full range of majors within the College—from Biochemistry to Theater & Drama. Students can complete either a Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Science, and many LAMP students pursue a double major.

During any given week a student could attend a Master Class with the CEO of Clorox, have lunch with the Sudan Desk Officer from the US State Department , and attend a workshop on preparing for a career fair. We encourage students to pursue all their passions, whether that is multiple majors, overseas study, or internship experience. We are here to make sure that students can get the most out of their 4 years at Indiana University as possible.

Student Radio Station WIUX Seeks Volunteers

From Craig Shank, WIUX Station Manager:

Student organizations are a great way for individuals to supplement their experience and learning in the classroom with real-world opportunities.

At IU's student radio station, students can host music, news, talk, or sports shows. In addition the station has multiple committees which can supplement what students in various disciplines are learning in the classroom. Here is a list of our committees at WIUX:

-Business Operations/Underwriting (Great for students seeking sales
experience)

-Programming (Encourages students to utilize organization and problem solving skills)

-Music (Activities include reviewing new music, organizing the WIUX music library, and conducting interviews with musicians)

-Sports (Students are able to engineer or announce broadcasts of 9 different Hoosier sports including Football, basketball, and baseball)

-Promotions (Students can help WIUX reinforce its branding and imaging efforts by organizing and executing creative promotional campaigns)

-News (Students help prepare pieces and announce for a one-hour news program every weeknight)

-Special Events (Students can organize concerts, movie screenings, art shows, and other community events that raise awareness of WIUX and other local organizations)

-Engineering (Students learn about the technical operations of a radio station and help set up PA equipment for WIUX and other student-sponsored events)

-Public Relations (Students prepare and send out press releases, address other media entities, and help build a positive image for our organization and university)

-Production (Create pre-recorded items using audio editing software that helps reinforce the station's image on-air)

-New Media/Web (Students can help maintain wiux.org, the live webstream, podcasts, and all other aspects of WIUX's online presence)

As you can see, there are many opportunities for students to take advantage of at WIUX.
