Following our peaceful and legal demonstrations on Monday and Friday of last week, at which IC Contingent Faculty gathered together with student allies, tenured faculty, and community members to protest the refusal of the administration to settle a fair contract with the union, we received a sharply worded letter from William Kerry, IC’s Chief of Police, threatening “a variety of actions up to and including legal proceedings” should the union attempt to picket or demonstrate peacefully within college property. To justify this blatant abrogation of the right of IC faculty and students to free speech and assembly in their own workplace, Chief Kerry accuses the participants of the demonstrations last week of having “stopped traffic” and “entered the college.”

We’re in the midst of National Eating Disorders Awareness Week (NEDAW) and the focus this year is on getting screened. It is a good time to assess your own thoughts about eating, body weight, and exercise. Are your attitudes in a healthy range, or could you be at risk for disordered eating?

Maybe you are concerned about a friend who has recently become preoccupied with food, dieting, weight, and body image, and who seems depressed or irritable, and may be having difficulties with classes, work or friendships. These signs might indicate an eating disorder.

February 26 - March 4 is National Eating Disorders Awareness Week (NEDAW), and the focus this year is on getting screened. The earlier an eating disorder is recognized and treatment begins, the better chance there is for a full recovery. For some, getting screened is their first step toward a life free of an eating disorder.

Eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of any mental disorder, and 30 million Americans will suffer from an eating disorder at some point in their life. Eating disorders are complex potentially life-threatening bio-psycho-social illnesses, not lifestyle choices. They profoundly impact not only those who are ill, but also their friends, family, and the whole community.
