AO:03 Sexual Harassment Training for Supervisors

Sexual harassment is one of the major employee complaints filed with state and federal agencies. Besides the threat of potential liability, Santa Rosa Junior College is committed to providing a workplace free of ALL forms of harassment, discrimination, and retaliation. 

Even though many employers like Santa Rosa Junior College have a "zero tolerance" policy for any form of harassment, discrimination and retaliation, the courts consistently find that a policy alone is not enough to prevent bad conduct. California now mandates that the most effective way to accomplish prevention is through training. 

Santa Rosa Junior College has arranged for online training from LawRoom, the premier web-based employment law service. The following course will train managers to recognize harassment and discrimination, handle complaints, and avoid retaliation in related workplace situations: 

Course 310: Supervisor Anti-Harassment (CA-AB1825)

If you are required to complete the course, you will receive an invitation by email that briefly describes the course and its completion date. The email invitation will provide brief instructions on accessing the course, along with your ID and Password.

If you have any questions, please contact Charles Prickett, District Compliance Officer at 527-4303 or email at cprickett@santarosa.edu.

So you have a PowerPoint presentation and you want to share it with your class online. Or maybe you have a PowerPoint presentation from a face-to-face class that you are now developing for online delivery. There are various ways to deliver the content of your PowerPoint file online to your class, each with it's own issues and with various levels of accessibilty.

This tutorial will look at various options for converting PowerPoint presentations to online versions and discuss the accessibility issues of each. Then we will look at an export option using LecShare for creating HTML versions of PowerPoint files.

AO:14 - Creating Accessible PDFs for Online Use
Corrine Haverinen

HTML pages are the best way to deliver content online because they are the easiest format for making content accessible to everyone including the sight impaired. PDFs offer an easy way to make your documents deliverable and readable over the internet, but making them accessible to the sight impaired offers a few more challenges than HTML pages.

PDFs are a better choice than Word documents because they will not require the viewer to purchase a program to read the file and PDFs have more accessibility features than Word files do.

When using PDFs for required content in an online class, you will need to make sure that they are accessible to disabled students. The online version of a workshop on creating accessible PDFs given by the PC trainers from SRJC's Academic Computing department is at the link provided below.

AO:06 - Issues in Adolescent Development
Jeanie Harmon, Child Development

Adolescence, once a relatively short period in the course of development, has now extended from the teens into the twenties for many youth in America. Much of our student population, particularly those ages 18-22, display characteristics that reflect an extended adolescence. Students are living at home with parents for longer periods of time, taking longer to achieve independence and self-sufficiency, are less familiar with the demands of the work world and have a harder time setting and achieving goals. How do we support the needs of these students, set appropriate expectations and facilitate the skills needed for competence and self-sufficiency? In this session, we will discuss characteristics of late adolescent development and practical strategies for supporting the needs of students, ages 18-22 in the college-learning environment.

Combine over 45 years of expertise, a supportive community, and a trained Leader who’s lost weight in meetings too, and the result is a proven, time-tested way of losing weight.

What happens at a meeting? You’ll get important information from the weeks’s weight loss topic and a confidential weigh-in each week to keep you on track. It’s not like an office or PTA meeting: the Leader is someone who’s been through the process of weight loss and succeeded. Meetings are an opportunity to get expert advice, share helpful strategies - or just listen and find motivation. It’s a little more than a half hour out of your week, and it’s worth it.

All are welcome! Fee applies: 17 weeks for $204 which includes etools; can be paid in 3 installments. Contact Micca Gray for more information: 527-4552.

Like a haunting train whistle calling in the distance, this theatrical folk tale takes us back to the early days of radio when a single voice could hold an audience spellbound across “the magic of the ether.” Shuttling effortlessly between 1895 and 1923, the play weaves together the homespun yarns of an itinerant radio storyteller named Davey Quinn and his boyhood escapades with a spunky blind girl named Frankie. Imaginatively staged as an old-time broadcast complete with live bluegrass music, this is a timeless love story sure to charm even the most cynical heart.

In the end a surprising truth is revealed, but according to Wilde, “The truth is rarely pure and never simple!

Video and Panel Discussion

Mad As Hell Doctors are physicians and other advocates who decided that they were indeed mad as hell about the cruel and inefficient system of health care in the US. Last September, they embarked on a three week road trip through the heartland of America, speaking at single payer rallies and events in 30 towns and cities in 15 states. Since returning home, they have continued to press for single payer health care reform and other changes in the U.S. health care system. Their film, “Health, Money and Fear,” will be shown locally free of charge on Thursday evening in Santa Rosa. The doctors will then bring a shortened version of the film to SRJC on Friday, September 24, which will be followed by a panel presentation and a Q&A from the audience.

04:AL:G - Leap of Faith: How Enmanji Temple Was Saved
Lina Hoshino

The Enmanji temple was first established in Sebastopol in Sonoma County in 1926 and served as a place of worship as well as a center of activity for the local Japanese farm communities. During WWII, the temple was locked up while the Japanese families in the area were forcibly incarcerated in relocation camps. Anti-Japanese sentiment ran high. Unidentified individuals tried to vandalize and burn down the temple while the Japanese families were away—an ax scar is still visible on the temple building. This inspiring film tells a little-known story of local teenagers who organized to guard the temple. Filmmaker Lina Hoshino narrates the film and weaves interviews with long-time Sonoma County residents together with historic photographs and documentation.

After a 32 year absence, she returned with several small photographs as gifts for the village.

In gratitude for her years of study there, Dr. Smith will continue to exhibit photographs in Bojacá until this unique record can be fully archived there.

04:AL:I - The Paradox of Transcendence– Mystical experiences, Rationality, & Madness
Faculty presentations & panel: Scott Fuller, Jurgen Kremer, Eric Thompson

A woman reports ongoing states of ecstasy as a result of back exercises. A man begins to speak in tongues and has bouts of “holy laughter.” Do these two examples of individuals reporting intense mystical, religious, or transcendental experiences have any social relevance? How can a rational perspective on these intriguing and unusual states be helpful? In this presentation, SRJC faculty members Scott Fuller, Jurgen Kremer, and Eric Thompson will discuss recent brain research, genetic predispositions, and the psychology and theology of transcendental experiences. How have transcendent experiences historically been incorporated in institutional religion, such as Pentecostal Christianity or the Native American Church? What do they tell us about us humans who seem to have a persistent need for religious experiences or faith?

Abby Lynn Bogomolny

Hailed as the Queen of the Harlem Renaissance, Zora Neale Hurston wrote Their Eyes Were Watching God in a mere seven weeks in 1936 while studying Obeah practices in the West Indies. Proudly bodacious in public and intensely solemn in private, Hurston had reasons to craft a novel incorporating the challenges she faced as a black anthropologist: financial dependence, racial segregation under Jim Crow, “acceptable” violence in relationships, and an endless assault on her self-worth as a woman. Join SRJC English Instructor Abby Lynn Bogomolny for a discussion of Hurston’s masterpiece, (which is also the English Department’s Work of Literary Merit for Fall 2010) and discover a vivid, lyrical novel, filled with healing wisdom and humor.

Joseph Lewis, 1950, USA

Long before Bonnie and Clyde or Natural Born Killers, Gun Crazy’s two star-crossed lovers travelled through the Midwest with guns a-blazing in this classic film noir thriller.  Considered by many to be the ultimate B-movie, the film oozes with action, style, and plenty of sexual innuendo.  Penned by blacklisted screenwriter Dalton Trumbo, the film was originally released under the title, Deadly Is the Female. 86 min.

Plan to attend the pre-film lecture at 6pm as well as participate in a post-screening discussion of the film until 10pm.

04:AL:K - The Mexican Revolution: A Socialist or Liberal Revolution; Myth and Reality
Laura Larque

SRJC History Instructor Laura Larque analyzes the Mexican Revolution--1910-1917 and the complexity of a class struggle led by Mexican peasants who were organized in two armies: Pancho Villa in the North, and Emiliano Zapata in the South. Both armies fought for land distribution and held some socialist ideas. During the seven-year war, the armies forged alliances with members of the middle class (Carranza and Obregon) and ruling class (Madero), only to be betrayed in the end. If Carranza did not include some of the Zapatistas demands in the new constitution, the Zapatista army would have continued fighting. In her presentation, Larque will discuss how, as a result of the revolution, the Mexican Constitution of 1917 was drafted to include characteristics of liberal, capitalist and socialist ideologies.
