Many people want to help save the environment and conserve precious natural resources, but only a few have the resources to come together to preserve the natural world. That is why the Save H-O-H Team presents its first planning forum and lunch today from 11:30 a.m. to 12:50 p.m. The project incorporates and examines policy, science, landscaping, architecture, engineering and hydrology. The goal is to develop a water-harvesting system for the UA area. Lunch is provided for free and anyone is encouraged to attend. The lunch will be held in the Forbes Building, Room 307. For more information and to respond for attendance, e-mail Aish H. Al Suwaidi at email@example.com.
In a culturally diverse world, people of many nations suffer from lack of knowledge about the manners of life led by those in foreign lands. The UA Center for Middle Eastern Studies recognizes the gap and uses programs like guest lecturing to increase awareness of cultural diversity. This week's guest lecturer is Steven Caton, a professor of anthropology at Harvard University, who will speak about "Islam and the Iranian Film Industry" today at 5 p.m. in the Harvill building, Room 150.
