SOCIOLOGY 3AC Professor Brian Powers 10/10/07 Lecture 20 Sharing or distribution of lecture notes, or sharing of your subscription, is ILLEGAL and will be prosecuted. Our non-profit, student-run program depends on your individual subscription for its continued existence. These notes are copyrighted by the University of California and are for your personal use only. Sharing or copying these notes is illegal and could end note taking for this course LECTURE We will collect the papers at the end of the hour. That is just the best way to do things so we can cover content and not worry about the frenzy of papers. We will turn in papers like we have been doing. Go to your normal G.S.I. positions. I know it is stressful to turn in papers and for some people it is their first semester in college. Well, I do not know what to do about that, I cannot take that away except to say that I am aware of it. I went through this experience as an undergrad and a grad student; I still have to meet deadlines as of today. I see this in my home too because I have a daughter who is a junior in high school and she is taking A.P. English, Chinese, pre-calculus and other A.P. classes. My wife and I wanted her to drop one of these courses because you need a life especially when it is 12 o’clock at night and she is crunching the work. I tell her she needs to go to sleep even though she has all that work because it is only a little moment in her life in the long run. She said, “Go away,” and I left her alone. I heard her snoring at the kitchen table at 2:30am. I wish she had dropped one of those courses, but she thought it would make her a failure. Believe me, I could feel the vibes coming across the bay that this entire class was freaking about finishing this paper and getting it done; I understand. I put The New York Times on the screen today because there are many things going on in our world and country. Can the federal government eavesdrop on U.S.? Is the United States going to attack Iran? There actually is a big debate going on. We might be having another war. I do not know if people are aware of that, but I am tempted to ask you to do a little research to see if we may very well attack Iran. I am not making this up and I am horrified. Many in the country are too, but a lot of people in the government say, “Go get them.” Right now, it is Cheney versus Condi in this big debate about Iran. What is sociological about that? Maybe we can have a little chat on the discussion board. Speaking of bSpace, it is very slow. I know that you know. I saw that there were about seventy papers submitted on bSpace. The bSpace people said that they knew it was slow. They said what you can do is create a submission space back at forums, but I can define the settings so that only the readers and I can see what you post. When I do that, I will let you know and ask you to submit the electronic version of your paper to the forum discussion which is going to be the reception point for your papers. Student:
