Play for Hundreds of People!
The Second Annual Porcupine Mountains Music Festival
will be taking place August 25, 26, 27 featuring Rory Block, Willy Porter, Melissa Ferrick, Ember Swift, Rachael Davis, Trina Hamlin, Hamell on Trial, and 18 other acts on 2 outdoor stages overlooking the south shore of Lake Superior in the beautiful Upper Peninsula, Michigan wilderness. Tickets
are on sale online for 10% off ($45 for a 3-day weekend pass).
This year the festival entrance will feature a busking stage where anyone can perform. It's like an open stage but with hundreds of people streaming by as they enter the festival. The best way to play the busking stage is to schedule a time slot in advance!
This year's festival will also feature a children's activity tent, several educational workshops from our artists, and some surprise collaborations. porkiesfestival( More Busking Stage InfoCollapse ) Current Mood: creative

Lake Baikal is in danger!
Help stop the construction of an oil pipeline in a World Natural Heritage Site!
Baikal, its 20% world reserves of fresh water !!!!!
This might be our last chance to stop a project to build an oil pipeline through the Lake Baikal basin in the immediate vicinity of the lake (as close at 800 metres at one point, and crossing 10 major rivers flowing into the lake, and 113.4 kilometres (70.5 miles) of the UNESCO World Heritage Site).
In very dubious circumstances the state organisation responsible for carrying out environmental impact assessments has approved the project of the state oil pipeline monopoly, Transneft. It is likely that only the intervention of the Russian President, Vladimir Putin, can prevent the project going ahead before it is too late.
Thousands of signatures have been collected against the project via the Internet (statistics: http://www.babr.ru/truba/
, also en English). Thousands more (over 20,000) have been collected in Irkutsk region to a petition to President Putin to call off the project.
In the event of an accident, within 20-40 minutes, up to 4,000 tons of oil could enter the lake with catastrophic consequences. The area is one of the most seismically active in Siberia where, in 1911, the most severe earthquake on Russian territory occurred. Scientists of the Irkutsk branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences have warned that in the case of such an accident some 10 thousand square kilometres of the lake (one third of the lake) would be covered by oil, bringing about the destruction of the major part of the lake’s endemic organisms.

Hey, I'm thinking about transferring out of here. I was wondering if anybody knows anything about APU and if it is a good school to go to? I know they have the Eco League, but I was just curious if it would be worth my money to go there as a transfer student instead of with the Eco League. I'm interested in the marine biology major, so if anyone can help, I'd be much obliged. Thanks.

liberal arts core
Hi. I'm pretty sure I'm going to apply to Northland as a transfer for either spring or fall 2006. I was just wondering if anyone could give me a link or something to what exactly the liberal education requirements are for Northland, as I can't seem to find them anywhere on the school's website.
Also, can anyone speak about the native american studies major? Do you recommend it? The major really excites me, because it's so unique, and it's something I could actually see myself studying for 3-4 years...
Thanks a squillion,

Hi, I'm considering a transfer to Northland for Fall 2005. I intend to double major in English and Environmental Studies with a minor in Environmental Public Policy. I currently attend Albion College, a small liberal arts college in Albion, Michigan. If you want to see what I'm involved in, feel free to check out my user info LJ page. I'm also applying transfer to University of Michigan-Ann Arbor and Brown University to study similar areas.
How do you like it? Is there anything you dislike? Where else did you apply? Thanks!
