The Employee Assistance Program sponsors a noon-hour session today

Mediation?" The speaker is Matt Erickson, UW's

The meeting runs from 12 noon to 1p.m. in Math and Computer room 5158.
"Bring your lunch," says the invitation. "Fruit juice will be provided."
Utility shutoffs scheduled
Electrical power, heating, cooling and ventilation will be turned off
from 6 to 10 p.m. tonight in Chemistry 2 building. "Computer equipment
should be shut down in an orderly fashion.")
Heating, ventilation and air conditioning will be turned off for a number
of rooms on the first and second floors of the Math and Computer building
from 6 to 9 a.m. tomorrow and Thursday.
Celebration of the earth
That's the theme for an Environment Week event tonight, sponsored by
the Womyn's Centre and being held in Campus Centre room 238 starting at
7 p.m. "If you are intrigued by the notion of celebration and circles,"
says an announcement, you should come: "everyone is welcome."
Tomorrow, there's a "bike workshop and potluck" from 11:30 a.m. to
2 p.m. in the Environmental Studies courtyard.
It's not officially part of Environment Week, but
it fits well with the Week's theme of "alternative forms of
transportation": the Midnight Sun solar car is to be unveiled
tomorrow, at 1:30 p.m. in the parking lot of Raytheon Canada,
400 Phillip Street. The UW-built car will be participating in the
Sunrayce across the United States in a few weeks.
