Film Screening: "The Trip" (Michael Winterbottom, 2010, 107 min, UK, in English, Color, DVD) -- Playing loose versions of themselves, Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon reunite with acclaimed director Michael Winterbottom for an acerbically witty, largely improvised ride through the English countryside. Tapped by The Observer to review fine restaurants throughout the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales, Steve finds himself without a traveling companion after his girlfriend decides not to go at the last minute. After being turned down by everyone else he knows, Steve extends an invitation to Rob, and together the pair attempt to navigate the winding back roads of rural England, impersonating popular celebrities such as Michael Caine, Woody Allen and Liam Neeson (among many others) and bickering along the way. --"One of the year's most beautiful films, thanks to cinematographer Ben Smithard's stunning landscape shots." -John Belfuss.// The Nasher Museum presents DINNER AND A MOVIE, a film series to satisfy every appetite. Join us in the museum café before 6 PM and enjoy ample parking, time to cool off, café dinner specials, and reserved film seating. The free film begins at 7 PM in the lecture hall.

"Open Access for the Future"
Have you ever used a library computer or campus Internet connection to read a research paper, conference proceeding, or federally-funded project report?
Once you graduate or leave your school's campus, all of that research becomes inaccessible, unless you are willing to pay per article (~$30>) or subscribe (~$thousands/year). We are petitioning the Obama administration to mandate an Open Access Policy that requires all federally-funded research to be made available within the public domain. It seems a logical step: taxpayers fund the research, shouldn't they have access to the results?
Please consider signing the White House Petition. It will take 2 minutes, and could lead to a federal change that benefits students, industry, academia, and the public alike!
SIGN THE PETITION HERE!
We will reach the 25,000 signature mark soon, but we want to send a strong message to the White House with 50,000+ that Open Access is the future. LetÍs make the headlines!
