Asian American LGB Identity Research seeking input

Categories:

Asian American LGB Identity Research
We are excited to be launching a new research project entitled: Negotiating the complexities of being self-identified as both Asian American and lesbian, gay or bisexual (LGB).

This project has two parts:
(1) a web-based survey that will be distributed widely through listservs and Facebook sites like this one, and

(2) about 10-12 open-ended telephone interviews about students' experiences.

The purpose of this study is to gather some preliminary, baseline data about the breadth of the community identified as Asian American and lesbian, gay or bisexual LGB), as well as some of your/their experiences in higher education.

Website Errors

Categories:

In the past week, the KBOO website has experienced a few hiccups of data loss, some of which we have been able to recover.  The lastest episode happened sometime in the past few days and you may notice that some of the webpages you were working on have lost their recent edits or may not exist at all if they were created recently.

Roger has been dealing with this since the first instance happened and has been communicating with our host about the issue.  For now, I would say go ahead and continue to use the website but know that this issue has not been resolved.

Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.

The Decider

 Apropos of my post below, Obama is planning to review the plethora of onerous executive orders issued by President Bush:

President-elect Barack Obama is poised to move swiftly to reverse actions that President Bush took using executive authority, and his transition team is reviewing limits on stem-cell research and the expansion of oil and gas drilling, among other issues, members of the team said Sunday.

Clearly, much more needs to be reviewed besides the issues mentioned above, but for a guy who's more than a month from taking office, this is a very encouraging start.
