Morgantown’s Science on Tap provides a relaxed atmosphere where researchers can engage in conversations about science in plain language with people who simply have curiosity about the topic.

Event Image Pacific Northwest Chapter - WVU vs. Marshall Game Watch
9:00 AM - 1:30 PM

It's an early start to the season this Saturday at 9am. Does anyone want to get together to watch the game against Marshall?

Join me in Buckey's in Belltown since I know they have plenty of TV's and they're open early. By "some interest" I mean I at least need one 9am buddy! We'll plan to watch here for the games, so if you can't make it for Marshall, we hope to see you next time!

The game is on the FX cable channel. If you're without cable, I don't think ESPN3 is going to be carrying many WVU games this year. I could be wrong. Anyway there's always my standby, http://www.justin.tv/wvurx if you don't have cable. He shows the game from the local channel feed, so you can even watch the WV commercials which are always fun.

Go eers!

SMOKY MOUNTAIN-EERS!
It is that time again when our beloved "Mounties" start back to their gridiron conquests!

This year will most definitely be a special year not only because we are in a bigger, and in my opinion,
BETTER conference, but we have a chance to win it in our first year.

Brian and Noel Kelley have graciously offered their home for our first of many game watches when WVU plays Marshall September 1. We would love to have you come out for our first game watch.

If you plan on attending, I ask that you bring a side dish or snack and your choice of beverage.

Brian and Noel's address:
8510 Barbee Lane
Knoxville Tennessee.

It is my understanding that they have a pool and they have invited anyone attending to bring their suits.

If the Mounties accumulate 70 or more points, Tony Angelleli will do a cannonball! : ) (He doesn't know this yet...)

I hope to see a great crowd and hope that anyone travelling to attend the game, have very safe travels and root hard for us!

Time for Three—Zach De Pue (violin), Nick Kendall (violin) and Ranaan Meyer (double bass)—is a self-proclaimed “garage band.” Classically trained at Philadelphia’s Curtis Institute for Music, the three members bring a passion for improvisation, composition and arrangement to their stage performances. Time for Three (Tf3 for short) boasts a varied repertoire of music that includes classical, country-western, gypsy, jazz and the occasional hip-hop riff—all performed with astonishing technical acuity.  Heard frequently on National Public Radio, this ensemble recorded the soundtrack to the History Channel production “The Spanish-American War.” Tf3’s first commercial CD, “Three Fervent Travelers,” debuted in the top 10 on Billboard, Amazon and iTunes. They are currently the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra’s Ensemble in Residence and have performed at the Kennedy Center, the Schleswig-Holstein Festival in Germany, Carnegie Hall and even opened for They Might Be Giants at Philadelphia’s Penn’s Landing. Audiences can expect adaptations of pieces by Bill Monroe; Charlie Rouse; Leonard Cohen; and Lennon and McCartney—all in the intimacy of the Creative Arts Center.

6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Pussy Riot, the Russian feminist punk rock band, has captured the attention of the world and stands center stage in the struggle for democracy in Russia. Has Putin succeeded in dismissing Pussy Riots members as mere hooligans or will their performances and arrests reignite the anti-Putin movement?

In this lecture an argument will be made that Putin's tight control of media will likely succeed in suppressing Pussy Riots message despite strong support from Western musicians, politicians, and international organizations.

Direct from Broadway, the smash-hit musical American Idiot tells the story of three lifelong friends, forced to choose between their dreams and the safety of suburbia. Their quest for true meaning in a post 9/11 world leads them on the most exhilarating theatrical journey of the season. Based on Green Day’s Grammy Award-winning multi-platinum album, American Idiot boldly takes the American musical where it’s never gone before. The result is an experience Charles Isherwood of The New York Times declares “thrilling, emotionally charged and as moving as any Broadway musical I’ve seen this year!” Featuring the hits “Boulevard of Broken Dreams,” “21 Guns,” “Wake Me Up When September Ends,” “Holiday” and the blockbuster title track, American Idiot features the music of Green Day and the lyrics of its lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong; direction by Tony Award-winner Michael Mayer (Spring Awakening); choreography by Olivier Award-winner Steven Hoggett (Black Watch); music supervision, orchestrations and arrangements by Pulitzer Prize-winner Tom Kitt (Next to Normal); Tony Award- winning set design by Christine Jones; and Tony Award-winning lighting design by Kevin Adams.

Janis-Rozena Peri received a Bachelor of Music in piano at Otterbein College in 1964 and a Master of Music in Voice from Miami University of Ohio in 1966.  In June 1967, following a year of study as a special student with Richard Miller at the Oberlin College Conservatory of Music, she was awarded the Kate Neal Kinley Award (administered by the University of Illinois), which allowed her to study and perform in New York City. She was a freelance singer in New York from 1967 through 1979 and then taught voice at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia, and at WVU.

A specialist in the works of women composers, Janis-Rozena Peri’s debut at the Carnegie Recital Hall featured the first New York performance in fifty years of early songs by Alma Mahler.  Her interest in the works of African-American women composers is manifest in her frequent performances of works by Florence Price, Margaret Bonds, Jeraldine Gerbison, Julia Perry, and Zenobia Powell Perry.  She has premiered works by Undine Smith Moore, Zenobia Powell Perry, Adolphus Hailstork, John Beall, Gerald Lefkoff, and Eero Richmond among others.

Evansdale Campus - Coliseum
Evansdale Campus

One of electronic dance music’s biggest names, Avicii, will play the WVU Coliseum Thursday, Sept. 20. In 2011, Avicii exploded onto the mainstream music scene with his break-through, multiplatinum selling “LE7ELS,” which gained airplay across the world for its infectious and innovative electronic sound. Beginning his career at 18, the self-taught, fresh-faced Swede has had greater success at 22 than most could ever hope for in a lifetime. With chart-toppers “Seek Bromance,” “My Feelings For You,” “Fade into Darkness,” and “Silhouettes,” Avicii has risen from bedroom music-maker to international superstar. He has headlined Ultra Music Festival with Madonna, completed a $1 million charity tour, collaborated with Ralph Lauren: Denim & Supply and embarked one of the biggest EDM arena tour to date already in 2012.  Avicii now stands shoulder-to-shoulder with the most in-demand and elite artists on the planet.

iDesign Workshop - Designing Text for Online Courses that Begs to be Read


Online faculty development workshop delivered via eCampus. The workshop will be open September 24 - October 8, 2012. So, you expect them to read that? Most online courses are text based, even after media is added. However, research indicates that people don’t read web pages. They scan them. How can we overcome this so that students actually read the information they need? This session will demonstrate how you can use CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) to make the on screen reading of your text more inviting to students. This workshop will include online question and answer sessions along with self-paced materials and activities, which you will have two weeks to complete.

He was interviewed by Forbes magazine on his case and the pressures he encountered while working at MCI. The interview resulted in a feature article in Forbes in June of 2002, only a few weeks before MCI/Worldcom disclosed that it had fraudulently manipulated its financial records.

Event Image Lewis Black
7:30 PM

Evansdale Campus - Creative Arts Center

Comedy master-mind Lewis Black will bring his trademark brand of “angry” comedy back to the WVU Creative Arts Center Sept. 30 

Lewis Black is of America’s most prolific touring comedians. Perhaps best known for his segment “Back in Black” on “The Daily Show,” his “rage,” scathing wit and hilarious views on everything from politics to pop culture have gained him millions of fans. Influenced by comedy heavyweights George Carlin, Lenny Bruce and Richard Pryor, Black’s routines frequently have audiences in stitches as he shares his unique take on the world. His live performances provide a cathartic release of anger and disillusionment for his audiences. He yells so they don’t have to.

The film delivers a powerful message about the media’s role in convincing women that their value and power is linked only to their youth, beauty and sexuality, rather than their capacity to lead.

Event Image Pacific Northwest Chapter - WVU vs. Texas Game Watch
4:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Our game watch this week will likely be at Spitfire. We've had some good times at Buckley's, but they are a "Michigan first" bar, and I'm concerned their 1:00 game will overlap with ours at 4:00. Now is the time to RSVP! (jerundle@gmail.com) Do let me know if you plan on making it as soon as you can!

I'm always happily surprised when I expect 5 or 6 and we end up with 10 or 15 to watch the game. However, it does make it difficult to plan ahead when reserving space in a restaurant. The more people we can have commit, the more clout we have when making a reservation which means a better spot and more TV's to watch the game. It becomes even more important when our games have to compete with other big afternoon games. 

Please do your best to RSVP for game watches and if you really are a last minute addition, by all means still come to the watch party - the last thing I would want is for someone to stay away just because he or she didn't RSVP. I'll do a better job of emailing everyone earlier in the week, too. Thanks!

Program Information:

"Aegean Festival Overture" by Andreas Makris/arr. Albert Bader. The driving energy of the opening and closing fast sections, combined with the lyric plaintiveness of the middle section, reflect the Greek origins of the composer.

"Hymn to a Blue Hour" by John Mackey. A work composed to depict the romantic, spiritual, and ethereal connotations of the magical time of day right after sundown and before complete darkness sets in.

"Sinfonia Voci" by David Holsinger. Subtitled “I Sing the Mighty Power of God,” this energetic piece is based on the 1784 melody entitled “Ellacombe.”

"Power and Glory" by John Philip Sousa. A rather obscure Sousa march that varies from the typical march style by including the popular “Onward Christians Soldiers” as the Trio theme.

"Flourishes and Meditations on a Renaissance Theme" by Michael Gandolfi. A 2010 composition containing seven variations based upon an anonymous and simple Renaissance melody entitled "Spagnoletta."

"Danzas Cubanas" by Robert Sheldon. A set of three original dance-like movements celebrating the joy and energy of the Afro-Cuban music and the people of the island nation of Cuba.

He received his bachelor's degree from Princeton and his Medical Degree from the University of Pennsylvania.

On the occasion of Bisexual, Gay, Lesbian, and Transgender History Month, the WVU Office of Multicultural Programs and the Office of International and Global Outreach will host a special BROWN BAG LUNCH FILM AND DISCUSSION entitled “Outrage” on Thursday, October 11 from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM in the Mountainlair’s Gluck Theater. The official selection of the 2009 Tribeca Film Festival by award-winning filmmaker Kirby Dick, this film investigates the hidden lives of some of the country’s most powerful policymakers and delivers a searing indictment of the hypocrisy of politicians who actively campaign against the LGBT community they covertly belong to. Through a combination of news footage and exclusive interviews with politicians and the media, Outrage looks at the psychology of a double lifestyle, the ethics of outing closeted politicians, and the double standards the media upholds in its coverage of public figures.This film will be presented by Marz Holtzworth, Senior in Women's and Gender Studies. This event is free and open to the public. Pizza will be served on a first come, first served basis. For more information, call the Office of Multicultural Programs at 304-293-0890 or visit our Website at http://studentlife.wvu.edu/office_of_multicultural_programs/upcoming_programs.

Delaware Chapter WVU Football Game Watch vs. Texas Tech
3:30 PM - 6:30 PM

Week in and week out thus far, Coach Holgorsen has turned the Mountaineers an exciting team to watch! In front of a record crowd in Austin, the Mountaineers came away with another win!! The 2012 WVU Mountaineers are now 5-0 and ranked #4/#5 in the country and continue to gain greater respect! With three of the Top 5 teams falling this past weekend, we are making our move toward a strong finish! This week we have an exciting game against a resilient Texas Tech squad that is coming off their first loss of the season to Oklahoma. They have a stingy defense and a very productive offense that has a strong aerial attack! This will be another battle where the team that scores often and doesn’t make significant turnovers will come out as the victor! Gotta love the competitive nature of the Big XII! Come on out and join us this Saturday evening! We will be holding game watches at the following great locations: 1. Buffalo Wild Wings 2062 Limestone Road, Wilmington, DE 19808 2. Buffalo Wild Wings 680 S. Bay Road, Dover, DE 19901 Bring out a few friends that are slowly becoming Mountaineers fans and let’s create some NOISE on Saturday!

Event Image Slightly Stoopid


Southern California’s Slightly Stoopid will bring their eclectic blend of punk, reggae and pop/rock to Morgantown Sunday, Oct. 14. Slightly Stoopid, whose members have been making music together for more than a decade, promises a concert experience audiences won’t forget. The band’s performances, which focus on improvisation and crowd interaction, have become fan favorites—so much so that Slightly Stoopid has become one of the most successful independent artists of this decade. 

The band has perfected the art of the stealth groove—that knack for quietly sliding into a composition and hooking everyone within earshot by mid-song. Their sound is built on a bedrock of bass, meditative vocal harmonies, rock-steady guitar licks and tightly syncopated percussion rhythms. It’s this eclectic mix of sounds that have afforded the band tour slots with a variety of artists over the years, including the Marley Brothers, blink-182, G. Love & Special Sauce, Pennywise, and N.E.R.D.

Evansdale Campus

For more than 40 years, Jackson Browne has written and performed some of the most moving songs in popular music. He has defined a genre of songwriting charged with honesty, emotion and personal politics. Since his debut album in 1972, Browne has released 13 studio albums, three collections and countless classic hits, including “Doctor My Eyes,” “Rock Me on the Water,” “Jamaica Say You Will” and “Somebody’s Baby” from the Fast Times at Ridgemont High soundtrack. Not only did his introspective, literate lyrics strike a nerve, but his laid-back folk-rock set the template for much of the music that came out of California during the ‘70s. Browne’s deeply reflective lyrics and natural sense of melody earned him induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame. Beyond his music, he is known for his advocacy on behalf of the environment, human rights and arts education. Browne is the recipient of the John Steinbeck Award, given to artists whose works exemplify the environmental and social values that were essential to the California-born author.  California’s quintessential singer/songwriter is sure to deliver a memorable night of music with this solo acoustic performance.
