Chemistry Titration Practice Session: March 5th at 2-5pm

The practice session will be held in Room SC230, Science Building , at UOG. This session is open to all those students who will compete in the main Titration event.

"Guerilla Marketing" Friday, March 12th (8:30am-11:00am) Location: SBDC #148 Jesus & Eugenia Leon Guerrero School of Business & Public Administration Building on the campus of the University of Guam .Fee: $20 per person Presented by Guam SBDC: Competition for the mind of the consumer today (through books, magazines, newspapers, television and the internet) is intense. Some people say we have information overload. How then can a small business position itself to be seen and heard in an overcrowded marketplace? Fortunately, buying decisions are increasingly becoming a social process. By introducing elements of the guerilla marketing approach into your marketing program, including word of mouth campaigns and promoting “buzz”, you can more effectively influence the buying behavior of individuals. Participants will be shown numerous examples of successful guerilla marketing campaigns, and take away key insights into the guerrilla marketing approach. To register, please contact the Guam SBDC at 735-2590 or email Laurine Sablan at firstname.lastname@example.org or Natasha Cruz at email@example.com.

American Studies Association of Japan to Hold Annual Research Conference at UOG in March 20 - 21
The American Studies Association of Japan, one of the largest academic associations for "Americanists" in Japan , will hold its annual research conference outside of Japan . The University of Guam will be the venue for the 2010 conference which will be held March 20 and 21. Approximately 20-35 researchers will convene at the University to present results of research on a wide variety of aspects of American studies, including U.S. culture, politics, foreign policy, language, and education. The keynote address will be delivered by Mr. Koki Kobayashi, Member, House of Representatives of Japan. He is a senior member of the Japanese parliament and one of the senior leaders of the ruling Democratic Party of Japan (DPJ) which took control of the Japanese government last fall. "One reason for the selection of Guam as the first meeting of the association outside of Japan is the growing interest in the realignment of U.S. military forces in the western Pacific among Japanese Americanists and JDP political leaders," said Michael Stoil, assistant professor of political science at UOG.
