We'll spare you the obnoxious Bangles allusions and get to the point: It's Monday. The last day of August, the beginning of a new week, and by now you're probably burnt out and sunburned. Be gratified that you have made it to the second week in the semester. Anyway, you should know that it's the last day to register from zero credits; meaning, if you haven't registered for any classes at all, this is the last chance you have to do so.
Since it's Monday, not much is going on. There's a poster sale in the lobby of Gallagher Theatre from 9 p.m. to 5 p.m. so decorate your walls and then collapse into the nearest armchair and wait until the sun sets, because that's when things will start picking up.
If you just can't wait, there's a chemistry seminar entitled "Final Defense: The Relaxation of Neutrals in the Zero Kelvin Limit," by Mike Ahern, UA graduate student, at 4 p.m. in Old Chem Room 134. Also at 4 p.m. is a lecture by Matthias Steinmetz about "The Epoch of Galaxy Formation" in Steward Observatory Room N210.
Since astronomy is so cool, you'll want to know that the Steward Observatory Public Evening Series Lectures continue tonight with "The Large Binocular Telescope Project," by John Hill from 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in Steward Observatory Room N210. After the lecture, you'll have the opportunity to search the night sky for miscellaneous space junk with the observatory's 21-inch telescope.
If you're taking Math 123, 124, 125a or higher, you may or may not have realized that you need to brush up on your calculus skills. If your fingernails have been chewed to the base 'cause you can't remember differentiation, then fear not. Professor David Lovelock will be giving a lecture called "Differentiating, Why and How" from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in Physics and Atmospheric Sciences Room 201.
To the man who has been living in a box for the past two years: there's this movie, called "Titanic," and people really liked it a lot. It's still showing at Gallagher Theatre tonight at 7:30 p.m. for $2.50, so start catching up on pop culture now with a movie set in 1912.
Multimedia Mondays at Club Congress, 311 E. Congress Street, this week presents the films "Invisible World" a punk rock musical, and "White City," which documents a woman's travels from city to desert. Live music will be performed by the Cigar Store Indians and Sturgeon General. Doors open at 8 p.m., admission is $4, call 622-8848 for more information.
