MLK Day 2009 -- Monday, January 19 -- is a "Day On, Not a Day Off."

Start your day with a breakfast at 8:30 a..m. in the Emerson Suites that will you feed your body and your soul. At this breakfast, you'll hear from the MLK Scholars. In October, the first year MLK Scholars went to Atlanta, Georgia, and visited various sites related to achievements of the civil rights movement. During this experience each scholar connected to the movement in his or her own way and returned to Ithaca with a much deeper understanding of the sacrifices made in the 1960s.

To reconnect with these experiences and share them effectively with others, the scholars have prepared a presentation that utilizes the talents of the group. Using monologues, photos, and songs of praise to tell the stories that inspired the scholars to make a difference in the world, the presentation will take you on a tour of Kelly Ingram Park, the 16th Street Baptist church, and, finally, Bloody Sunday.

Whether you knew it or not, when you installed Office 2007 on your office workstation, by default, your files were set to save in the Office 2003 file format (.doc, .xls and .ppt). At the time, the IC community was using multiple versions of Office and the Mac 2004 version couldn't read the new XML file formats used by Office 2007 for Windows and Office 2008 for Mac. That's all changed now. With the release of the Mac converter and Office 2008, plus the compatibility pack for Windows, all users on campus should be able to read documents in the new file formats (.docx, .xlsx and .pptx). ITS would like you to change your default setting and begin using the new file formats.
