WITH Care Benefit Show! [OPEN CALL]


Leo Enverga ’14 offers another way to help out with relief efforts:

A benefit show is being held after Thanksgiving, bringing together different facets of the Wes performance scene (a capella, dance, bands, cultural performances, etc.), in support of Typhoon Haiyan relief efforts in the Philippines!

Come to today’s meeting at 9PM in Usdan 110 to find out more about the event, to volunteer and to confirm your group’s involvement!

Two ways to help with this event:
–   Volunteer! We’ll need help keeping the event running smoothly, promoting and raising awareness for the typhoon and ways to help during the event, and advertising.
–   Perform! We’re having a variety of performers, so please don’t hesitate to join the show’s program! We’re showing the world that all sides of Wes care.

Thanks for your help!

“The Other City” Screening in Honor of World AIDS Day

From Tali Robbins ’15:

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.

Come, watch, eat free Typhoon dinner, and remember to wear red!

Date: Saturday, December 1
Time: 6-8 p.m.
Place: Shanklin 107
Cost: FREE (and you get Typhoon dinner)

Brought to you by Andrew Trexler ’14:

I’m helping out with a new start-up company that designs mobile applications. The CEO is coming down to Wesleyan on Monday, and wants to have some college students take a quick ten minute survey. He will be providing FREE FOOD from Typhoon for your trouble. If your meal plan is starting to empty out (or not!) then come fill out a brief survey and grab some free Thai food. And maybe hang out with other cool Wes people doing the same.

Please RSVP at atrexler[at]wesleyan[dot]edu by noon on Monday so we know how much food to buy. Thanks everybody!

Knots and the Fourth Dimension

Free food! From Typhoon! Also, math. The Sexy Primes (Undergrad Math Club) present:

Knots and the Fourth Dimension with Professor Constance Leidy!

Take a piece of string, jumble it up, then seal the ends together. The result is a knot. Notice that you can’t untie the knot because you’ve permanently sealed the ends together. (If we don’t jumble at all, we’ll just end up with a circle, which we call the unknot.) We call two knots equivalent if you can move one jumbled piece of string to look exactly like the other without cutting it open. Knots naturally live in 3-space. We’ll discuss a different equivalence relation called concordance involving the fourth dimension. A knot that is concordant to the unknot is called a slice knot. We will discuss some joint work  that shows that knots in a certain family whose slice status was unknown are in fact not slice.

Date: Oct. 11
Time: Noon – 1:00 PM
Place: Woodhead Lounge, Exley Science Center
Cost: Free!
