Communication, Culture and Rhetoric (web/online course) will investigate the rhetorical dimensions of the longest-running sitcom in America, The Simpsons. Students will learn how signs and symbols influence us through a process called rhetoric. As they become ‘Simpsonologists’ , students will examine various episodes paying special attention to the ways in which The Simpsons functions as both rhetoric and satire—how it serves as corrective comedy to issues such as consumerism, nationality, sexuality, inequality and political dysfunction.

Some Mac users have reported to the ITS Helpdesk that the search function in OWA is not working. Microsoft acknowledges that there is a bug in the software, but has not announced a date as to when it will be fixed. The problem only occurs while using OWA in Safari or Firefox. A workaround is to use the Chrome browser, in which the search function works as expected.

IF YOU THINK WASTE IS SOMEONE ELSE’S PROBLEM, THINK AGAIN!
Vast landscapes in China are covered in tons of rubbish. The wide waters of the Ciliwung River in Indonesia are now barely visible under a never-ending tide of plastic. Children swim among leaking bags; mothers wash in the sewage-filled supply. Each year, we now throw away fifty-eight billion disposable cups, billions of plastic bags, 200 billion litres of water bottles, billions of tons of household waste, toxic waste and e-waste.
Academy Award winning actor Jeremy Irons is no stranger to taking centre stage. But his role as our guide in TRASHED highlighting solutions to the pressing environmental problems facing us all, could well be his most important yet. Having faced the worst through much of TRASHED, Jeremy Irons turns to hope. He goes in search of solutions.

Ithaca College will host a screening of the film “Money & Life” on Wednesday, April 16 at 7pm in Textor 101. “Money & Life” is an inspirational documentary that asks a provocative question: can we see the economic crisis not as a disaster, but as a tremendous opportunity? This film connects the dots on our current economic pains and offers a new story of money based on an emerging paradigm of planetary well-being that understands all of life as profoundly interconnected. “Money & Life” invites us to meet the challenge of our time: to participate in the great transition to a sustainable, equitable and restorative economy that meets the needs and realities of the 21st century.

"The route through childhood is shaped by many forces, and it differs for each of us. Our biological inheritance, the temperament with which we are born, the care we receive, our family relationships, the place where we grow up, the schools we attend, the culture in which we participate, and the historical period in which we live--all these affect the paths we take through childhood and condition the remainder of our lives."
