Smithwick Parking Lot Update
Here's a surprise: there's work going on in the parking lot behind the Smithwick Theatre.  Right now, the word is there's no parking on Wednesday, but as always, that could change.

Spring Forward, Fall Back
Daylight Savings time ends Sunday.  Don't forget to set your clock back an hour, and remind your students as well!

Program Review
Please check your email for my reminder regarding program review.  If you did not receive one, that does not mean you cannot participate!  I cannot overstate the importance of Program Review to our continued well-being.  It is the primary instrument that informs the college and community of the state of our programs, it is the primary tool for funding, etc.  It is visible to anyone who visits www.foothill.edu.  For lack of a better term, this is where the rubber meets the road.  Want to improve your facility?  It comes from Program Review.  Need better equipment or upgrades?  It comes from Program Review.  Need release time?  It comes from Program Review.

If you want an example, the reason Appreciation Hall is now about as great a facility for media (surround sound, HD video, etc.) as you will find is because the upgrade was in Program Review.

All of the data you need is at http://www.foothill.edu/staff/irs/programplans/index.php.  Your Program Review is due to me by December 12, so I can spend the holiday reviewing your excellent work.

The proprietors of a successful Silicon Valley video game company are under siege in both the media/court of public opinion as well as civil court because the perpetrator of a racially charged school shooting incident identified one of their games as inspiration for his actions. Timely, gripping and intense, this story vividly examines the nature of such incidents dominating headlines of the recent past.
