Our world this week is in an unruly mess in the political, health and financial areas and the international website posts reflect these, as you will see – whether it is in the reprise to WWII, in the post on AIDS and spread of infections, or in the news about the Waldorf Astoria’s purchase. As usual, I am not re-posting some of the Announcements and am giving you my own particular choices with the hope that you will find yours.
My choices this week are:
1) If you have not already, please read and comment on the website regarding the courageous efforts of Sandra Leong and Kerry J. Sulkowics in their open letter to President Bollinger and the Board of Trustees in the Columbia Spectator on October 2, 2014.and Emma Sulkowicz, CC ***15, performance art-protest, ***Carry That Weight,*** raising awareness about sexual assault on campus and turning victim hood to activism.
