Protect Our Campus, Use The "Phish Alert Report" Button

As many of you know, we have a new automated phishing prevention system. I am advising all our users to utilize the "Phish Alert Button" in Outlook (image attached).

If you receive a suspected phishing email, clicking on the Phish Alert Report button will remove it from your email and quarantine it for analysis. And even better, through your reporting, ITS systems will automatically look for similar emails on university servers and remove them from other accounts. In this way, you are acting as a "human firewall" to protect yourself and the wider campus community from these social engineering attacks. Report with confidence...If you (accidentally) falsely report a phishing email, the analysis engine will release it back to you.

Light Matter Presents: REWIND & PLAY (Alain Gomis, France/Germany, 2022)

In December 1969, legendary jazz pianist and composer Thelonious Monk ended his European concert tour with a performance at the Salle Pleyel in Paris. Before the show, he was invited to appear on a French television program to perform and answer questions in an intimate setting.

Using newly discovered footage from this recording, director Alain Gomis (FÉLICITÉ) reveals the disconnect between Monk and his interviewer, Henri Renaud, whose unwittingly trivializing approach conveys the casual racism and exploitation prevalent in the music industry at large.
A fascinating behind-the-scenes documentary with extraordinary rarely-seen performances, REWIND & PLAY offers a unique opportunity to see Monk in a way that very few people did.

"A minor masterwork of historical investigation and a fervent tribute to the epochally great musician Thelonious Monk." - Richard Brody, The New Yorker

Women's History Monty

Women's History Month was initially just International Women's Day, a day that commemorated the Feb. 28 meeting of socialists and suffragists in Manhattan in 1909.

One year later, on March 8, 1910, according to BBC, a German activist named Clara Zetkin suggested that they recognize International Women's Day at an International Conference of Working Women in Copenhagen. With 17 countries in attendance at the conference, they all agreed.

On March 8, 1911, the first International Women's Day was celebrated in Austria, Switzerland, Germany and Denmark, though the holiday wasn't widely celebrated in the United States until the United Nations began sponsoring it in 1975.

In 1977, in order to persuade school principals to comply with the recently passed Title IX, a task force in California created Women's History Week. They used that week to celebrate the accomplishments of women.

In March 1980, after celebrations had spread across the country, President Jimmy Carter declared that March 8 was officially the start of National Women's History Week. That same year, Utah Senator Orrin Hatch and Maryland Representative Barbara Mikulski co-sponsored the first Joint Congressional Resolution declaring the week of March 8, 1981, National Women's History Week.

By 1987, Congress declared the entire month of March Women's History Month. Since then, every president has declared the month of March Women's History Month.
