You are The High Priestess

Science, Wisdom, Knowledge, Education.

The High Priestess is the card of knowledge, instinctual, supernatural, secret knowledge. She holds scrolls of arcane information that she might, or might not reveal to you. The moon crown on her head as well as the crescent by her foot indicates her willingness to illuminate what you otherwise might not see, reveal the secrets you need to know. The High Priestess is also associated with the moon however and can also indicate change or fluxuation, particularily when it comes to your moods.

Leading Christian conservatives lay it all on the table right before the Holidays – rights of the born, help for the poor, not as important as the “right tax policy.”

Don’t take my word for it.

“A Religious Protest Largely From the Left
Conservative Christians Say Fighting Cuts in Poverty Programs Is Not a Priority

“Around 300 religious activists have vowed to kneel in prayer this morning at the Cannon House Office Building and remain there until they are arrested. Wallis said that as they are led off, they will chant a phrase from Isaiah: “Woe to you legislators of infamous laws . . . who refuse justice to the unfortunate, who cheat the poor among my people of their rights, who make widows their prey and rob the orphan.”

To GOP leaders and their supporters in the Christian community, it is not that simple. Acting House Majority Leader Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) said yesterday that the activists’ position is not “intellectually right.”

later Tony Perkins, President of the Family Research Council, chimes in stating, “There is a [biblical] mandate to take care of the poor. There is no dispute of that fact,” he said. “But it does not say government should do it. That’s a shifting of responsibility.”

Hey, Merry Christmas.

You Are Likely a First Born

At your darkest moments, you feel guilty.
At work and school, you do best when you’re researching.
When you love someone, you tend to agree with them often.

In friendship, you are considerate and compromising.
Your ideal careers are: business, research, counseling, promotion, and speaking.
You will leave your mark on the world with discoveries, new information, and teaching people to dream.

…including yours truly.

Internship Presentations

SLIS students from the Fall 2005 L596 Internship in Library and Information Science course reported on their experiences during the last week of classes. The presentations provided an opportunity to exchange insights and hear about fellow students’ challenges and triumphs. This semester 25 students were registered for internships through SLIS Bloomington.

SLIS students are eligible to complete an internship for L596 course credit after completing 18 SLIS credit hours. The typical three-credit-hour internship requires 180 hours of onsite work. Interns keep journals of what they do and learn; they also read and summarize relevant professional materials to tie their internship experiences to their intended professional placements.

Four students of the Fall 2005 interns submitted their journals in the form of blogs (Web logs). These interns have granted permission to link to their blogs for this story.

* Ilias Kyriazis – online journal: music cataloging internship, Indiana University, William and Gayle Cook Music Library
* Tyler Danstrom – online journal: – metadata internship, Indiana University Libraries Digital Library Program
* Susan Maguire and Sarah Mercure – online journal: reference services internship, Monroe County Public Library

Debora Shaw, SLIS Executive Associate Dean, is the Internship Coordinator. Students interested in placements, or employers interested in interns, can contact her by email at Sample Internships in the Bloomington area, as well as in other placements around the country can be found on our website. After hearing the interns’ reports, Dr. Shaw commented on “the great value the interns’ supervisors contribute in helping these SLIS students prepare for their steps into the professional world.”
