1. As a response to the difficult economic times we are facing, Congress has cut federal student aid programs by approximately $30 billion dollars, sacrificing some student?s benefits to pay for others. The Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction, also known as the Super Committee, has until Nov. 23 to come up with a plan to reduce the nation’s debt. Federal student aid could very well be on the chopping block and your voice is needed to defend the programs that grant access to postsecondary education.

Your voice can be heard by signing the statement of support that calls on our lawmakers to Save Student Aid. Click on the link below and become one of thousands who have decided to TAKE ACTION. http://action.studentaidalliance.org Cathleen Patella

4. ATTENTION MALES AGES 18-35
You are invited to participate in an exciting project! Researchers from the Department of Sociology at Wells College need you to volunteer. We are exploring how pornography is selected and how people are talking about it. If you are a male between the ages of 18 and 35, we would like to include your unique perspective in our project.
Most of what has been written about pornography focuses on the bad stuff and it leaves the voices of men out of the picture. We?d like to add something new to the way we think about porn by including the voices of young men in our research. If you choose to participate you will be asked to share information through a confidential, phone interview on how you select what you like to watch and what you think of the types of porn that are available. We?re also interested in your perceptions of reality t.v., and fantasy (porn-star porn) vs. reality porn (like, amateur) and which type you think is better.
If you are interested in participating, or would like more information, please send an email to Seniorsociologyproject@gmail.com and one of our researchers will answer any questions you may have. We encourage you to ask questions and to become part of our project. ===================================
Please contact the sender specified in this message with questions related to a particular announcement contained within this message.Do not reply to this address.

Deborah also managed capacity building in supply planning for 22 countries as Regional Advisor for West and Central Africa based in Dakar, Senegal. Deborah now works at UNICEF headquarters at the UN in New York. She is Senior Specialist in the Governance, UN and Multilateral Affairs Division. Her main function is to ensure a high profile for children’s issues in the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) which serves as the central forum for discussing international economic and social issues, and for formulating policy recommendations addressed to Member States and the United Nations system. Her most recent achievement was mounting an international exhibit on UNICEF partnerships and products as part of the ECOSOC Innovation Fair during a high level meeting in Geneva. In addition, Deborah is a leadership coach under the Leadership Development Initiative, University of Pretoria, South Africa. She coached a young woman colleague from Afghanistan in the development of a project to improve advocacy for child rights within the UN Security Council.
