You know you've done it. After you've gotten into a fight with your significant other, you head straight for the Hagen-Daaz and drown your sorrows in a pint of Rocky Road. UA psychology professor Patti Harada will explain why we turn to food when we're feeling down in her seminar on "Unresolvable Grief and Trauma." This week's lecture, "When Food Gets Confused With Protection and Love," will help you find alternatives to downing a bag of chips when you're feeling depressed. Harada will be speaking in the DuVal Auditorium of the University Medical Center at 7 p.m. The lecture costs $5.

"Hell no, we won't go," was Conrad Joyner's battle cry when he taught political science at the UA during the Vietnam War. Joyner, who also had a brief stint as U.S. Chairman to the United Nations, will be lecturing about those turbulent times during the Arizona Historical Society's summer lecture series in his speech "Vietnam: Politics and Protests." The speech, which is part of the "Cold War and Hot Politics in the Old Pueblo" series, starts at 7 p.m. in the main museum of the Arizona Historical Society. You'll have to pay $6 for the lecture, but it's worth it to find out about all the student protests that took place on the UA campus.


Students who work for the university should advise their bosses to attend the latest round of the Human Resources Department's July programs. This week's topic will cover "Supervising Student Employees," and will teach employers how to best manage students who are juggling work, school and other responsibilities. Instructors will also provide managers with guidelines to follow during the hiring process. The workshop starts at 8:30 a.m. in Room 216 of the University Services building and is open to all university employees.

Come dance to the swinging beats of the Brian Setzer Orchestra. Their blend of rock 'n' roll, jump blues, rockabilly and swing will have you on your feet in no time. They'll be gracing the campus with a one-night performance at Centennial Hall starting at 7:30 p.m. Tickets cost between $37 and $47 and you can give the box office a call now at 621-3341 to reserve yourself prime seats.

If you've missed all the classes in Web design this summer, you have one more chance to catch up.
