It’s the last concert of the year for Buddhist House! Are you wondering what math has to do with rock? Do you enjoy rhythms that throw off your internal sense of balance? Are you at least curious what I’m talking about?
Joint Chiefs of Math is a guitar and drum math-rock duo based in Philly. Think Hella meets This Town Needs Guns meets Breadwinner meets Don Caballero. Or just checkitout:
We’ve also got the student group Anaphylactic Shock opening for them, featuring Henry Robertson ’13 on guitar and vox, Frank Fineis ’13 on bass, Jacob Masters ’15on keys, and Dylan Awalt-Conley ’15 on drums.

We actually didn’t get an e-mail about this, but this panel today with the College of the Environment Think Tank 2012seems semi-relevant to the current battle that is taking place over the Centerplan development:
NIMBY (Not In My Back Yard) environmental protests are usually associated with images and rhetoric of selfish, parochial communities who engage in violent clashes with authorities. Most social science literature thus far has focused on what policy makers and businesses can do to avoid this kind of opposition. This panel takes a different view. Examining NIMBY environmental protests in Germany, China, Russia, Japan, Korea, and Taiwan, the four panelists will argue that although they may begin with narrow goals, NIMBY protests can often have positive and lasting influences on environmental policy and governance.
Join us this December 1 for a screening of “The Other City” in honor of World AIDS Day.
Not far from the White House, the Capitol, and the National Mall lies a part of Washington, DC that the tourists never see and the mainstream media virtually ignores. At least three percent of DC is HIV positive, a staggering rate higher than parts of Africa. Behind all the stories of heartbreak, loss, and struggle there are also the incredible, encouraging stories of the people behind grassroots movements to extend education, combat stigmas, and spread hope.

2000. USA. Dir: Mary Harron. With Christian Bale, Willem Dafoe. 102 min.
Patrick Bateman: a man with the winning smile of Tom Cruise and the bloodthirsty tendencies of Hannibal Lecter. Bale’s breakthrough performance blurs the line between deeply disturbing and downright hilarious, carrying a biting critique of Reagan-era business culture and masculine vanity (not to mention a compelling defense of Huey Lewis). It’s hip to be square!
Ariel Lesnick ’14 would like to share the following message, with the hope that it will kindle some warmth within your laughter deprived souls:
