Fuzzy memories [Aug. 28th, 2010|12:08 am]
University of California, Los Angeles

I seem to remember that towards the end of the spring 2009 quarter, there were posters on Gayley Ave. advertising an on campus talk by "former terrorist(s)". Naturally, being the bleeding heart, pinko liberal that I am, I became suspicious when I noticed that the small print on these posters revealed that the event was sponsored by the College Republicans...or something. Whoever sponsored it, it was probably the most prominent conservative student organization on campus.

And I probably would've forgotten about it if my memory hadn't been jogged in the past couple of weeks thanks to a headline from one of my favorite "leftist hate groups", Media Matters. The article I'm talking about is pretty damning in itself. TL;DR: Walid Shoebat and his buddies who travel around the country telling ghost stories about the inherent danger Islam itself represents are frauds, because investigation by publications such as The Jerusalem Post and The New York Times has shown that their war stories do not add up. The United States Air Force Academy has hosted Walid Shoebat and his friends in the past and has drawn criticism as a result.

So I guess my question is, were Walid Shoebat, et al the so-called "former terrorists" who were brought to campus to speak last year? If so, did anybody say or do anything to protest?

ATTN: people with a .edu email address [Jul. 15th, 2010|07:41 am]
University of California, Los Angeles

Amazon is offering a free 1 year subscription to Amazon Prime (Free 2 day shipping!): http://amzn.to/bSH8jP

This is being marketed towards college students but all you need is a valid .edu email address.

Now is a time that I wish I was still in college. Oh well, what can you do?

So... there's no anoncon right now, which means my finals week procrastination strategy is pretty much ruined. Let's all remedy that, yes?

Free book [Mar. 28th, 2010|02:25 pm]
University of California, Los Angeles

Hey guys,

sorry to post here. the textbook site for ucla seems inactive.

I have a reader for Sociology 124a/244A or Comm Studies M144A  - Conversational structures. Not sure if it's usable for future quarters, but most of the readings should be relevant. The course reader costs $80+ dollars, so I'm finding it quite a waste to toss away. So if anyone wants to put it to good use, it's yours for free. Let me know!

FYI: It's a really thick reader with about 40 + articles..

Dear friends,
please, suggest safe, family friendly spots around LA to go camping; or maybe some places where we can see the snow and stay overnight not too costly.
thank you!

UCLA Fundraiser for Chile [Mar. 10th, 2010|09:37 pm]
University of California, Los Angeles

I hope this is all right to post here - this Friday (March 12 2010), 7:00 PM, in Rolfe Hall 1301 the Spanish & Portuguese department at UCLA are hosting a fundraiser to help in the reconstruction of areas in Chile that were greatly damaged in the recent earthquake.

We'll be having meals & drinks, poetry, music, socializing, dancing and the cover is $10 for food & drink.

I know that right now it's difficult to offer any money and many of us are in need of pretty much every dollar and moreso now that university fees are being increased, but if you're willing & able we'd love to have you!

The event is also up on Facebook here

I've placed the flyer behind the cut if you are interested in knowing more: Read more...Collapse )
