signal boosting re: swinger research Jan. 2nd, 2013 @ 04:42 pm
Since this is for folks who are academically involved and in a city where swinging isn't such a secret, I figured I'd take a chance and signal boost this here.

So, when I was at the NCFR (National Council on Family Relations) conference in November, I went to a presentation by these researchers about their study involving swinger couples and their communication techniques. It was really interesting, but, due to the high level of secrecy that many swingers maintain, they were having difficulty finding many research participants. I have since been in contact with them and wanted to spread the word in case anyone might want to participate or signal boost or knew folks to tell as well. Here's the official information release:

Recruitment for Research on Swinger Couple Communication TechniquesCollapse )

Cheers, y'all!

Halloween Costume Contests? Oct. 25th, 2008 @ 12:58 pm
All right, you lot, I'm asking for your inside scoop on Halloween parties around town with costume contests. I've already poked around online and flipped through the Weekly, and I'm rather confuzzled on all that's out there.
I'm hoping to find someplace that is having a Costume contest on Halloween night, and doesn't have any restrictions against masks. (i.e. Texas Station's "Heroes and Villains" party and contest doesn't allow full face paint or masks... *blink blink* Yeah, that's gonna cut down on the costume choices, don't you think?)
I would prefer it not be all outrageously expensive, or so "exclusive" that you've got to get bottle service or something just to be able to get in (I don't drink).
I also know that some places have specifically stated that they're having contests for the "sexist" or "scariest" costume, neither of which my costume is.
So yeah, I know there are ads to go by, but I'm looking for personal insights as well.
(For the record, my costume is as canon-accurate-as-I-could-make-it Andrew Lloyd Webber's Phantom of the Opera, natch.)
Thanks in advance!!!

Seeking Actresses!!! Jan. 9th, 2008 @ 06:57 pm
CSN is ramping up for year TWO of The Vagina Monologues (VDay to the Tenth)! Campus NOW is once again sponsoring and funding the event on the Henderson campus - and we're looking to expand with a POTENTIAL second performance date at the Cheyenne OR West Charleston campus (we're only allowed to do two...). Open auditions will be held after the performance date(s) is(are) decided upon by Campus NOW and the CSN Henderson administrators. If anyone is interested, please reply. I am particularly seeking actresses of minority background (Asian, Middle Eastern, and Latina women are wanted) for some of the pieces. But of course, ANYONE is welcome to audition. Anyone who auditions and does not get cast can participate in any number of other ways including publicity, stage management, front of house manager, ushers, and one particular lucky individual will get to assistant direct.

If you have never acted before - don't be shy. This is a really fun experience - and we perform WITH scripts.

Be aware: At least one performance will occur at 6p.m. on a TUESDAY night at the Henderson campus.

Please reply if you are interested!!!!

National Student Empty Holster Protest Oct. 24th, 2007 @ 05:16 pm
"TheNational Collegiate Empty Holster Protest is aimed at state laws andcampus policies that "stack the odds in favor of armed killers" bydisarming law-abiding citizens who are licensed to carry concealedweapons in most other places."

"College students across the country havebeen strapping empty holsters around their waists this week to protestlaws that prohibit concealed weapons on campus, citing concerns overcampus shootings."

Has anyone seen any empty holsters on CSN campuses this week? Is anybody one participating?

» how to file complaint/grievance?
Does anyone know how to find out who to contact to file an official complaint about a teacher? I've been searching the CCSN site and can't find anything to help me. If the teacher is a Philosophy prof, is there a department chair or a Dean of students or something to go to? I know there are several of my classmates who would join me in an official complaint. Of course, just to make things more complicated, it's an online course. If anyone knows the title or department to look for, I'd very much appreciate it. Thanks in advance!

COM101 - Oral Communication - Leonard A Johnson
FIL198B - ST: Conversational Filipino - Staff
PSC211 - Comparative Government/Politics - Alan Balboni
ENG232 - World Literature II - John M Ziebell (distance ed)
PHIL102 - Critical Thinking/Reason - Richard Howe (distance ed)

Has anyone taken a lit class as an online course? I have experience with distance ed classes (COM218, PSC101, and HHP123B) but I'm curious as to how an Eng/lit course might be run. More specifically, whether it might be smarter to take a physical class.

I've never heard of CCSN teaching Filipino before. Does anyone know if this is a brand new course? (I assume not because there's a Filipino II class already.) Anyone here know any info about it? I think I might have to drop this course, but I'd like to get any insight.

Any info/opinions on the other teachers and courses would be greatly appreciated too. I'm really excited about taking COM101, and I definitely want a good teacher.

So has anyone ever been called for jury duty while they were attending school? If so, were you able to get out of it because you were a student?
ETA: I contacted them online and explained I would be in school for the date they wanted me to appear so the clerk moved me up and I served on the 31st of July. I didn't even make it to a courtroom 
:(  ( I was actually looking foward to being on a jury) maybe next time.

I plan on taking these 2 classes via Distance Ed (aka online) is there anyone you guys would recommend taking the classes with or completely avoiding?

The same questions goes for the teachers at the school as well, incase for some reason I don't take them online.

I just want to make sure I am getting teachers that are helpful and easy to understand due to the fact that I am HORRIBLE at math.
