The United States uses about one-quarter of the world's total energy output, but have less than five percent of the world's population. According to statistics of the US Dept. of Energy, 19.9% of crude oil products imports to the US, during January 2005, came from the Persian Gulf countries (Petroleum Supply Monthly). This article is written to make U.S. Businesses familiar with customs, traditions and laws governing business dealings with that region of the world.

On August 4th, at the main entrance to UC Santa Cruz, faculty members held a demonstration in support of their colleagues who were targeted with firebombs on August 2nd in what authorities are calling attacks by animal liberationists. Corporate news reporters, and their flock of more than ten white vans, were all over the scene to quickly sensationalize the story.
I spoke with numerous people to listen to their feelings, document why they chose to attend the demonstration, and in some cases to inquire about potential consequences to student privacy when organizing future events. The people I spoke with included researchers, a lecturer, professors, UCSC students, a Santa Cruz High School student that lives in faculty housing, UCSC's Executive Communications Coordinator, Guy Lasnier, and finally with UCSC Chancellor George Blumenthal.
Please check out the interviews, with captions and more photos, at Santa Cruz Indymedia.

Students should not only cram. Achievement also means exploring, experimenting and learning about learning. The problem with the old system is that relatively little was learned and achieved in school and the children of wealthy parents had an advantage.
Black men could vote (1870) 50 years before women could (1920), so there is no denying that racism has been in public policy longer than sexism/male supremacy. In that, maybe it's evident that racism has also been in the public eye longer. For nowadays, racism is recognized more easily the moment it happens, and more people check themselves to see if they're being racist.
