There is nothing wrong with starting a search at Wikipaedia. Sometimes, the articles are well researched, such as this one on the Great Pacific Garbage Patch which was referenced on your midterm.

Howdy folks,
I'm permanently changing my office hours for the rest of the semester. Going forward, my office hours will be
Tues/Thurs from 12:00 Noon to 2:00 PM or by appointment.

Howdy folks,
There are two events that may be of interest to you.  For the second event, I have no idea if the bands are any good, but I think the cause is. Perhaps I will see some of you at one/both of these events!

First, tonight from 5 to 7 at the civil war statue on College Green there will be an "Occupy OU" event. Sounds like some folks are trying to get their voices heard locally.

Second is the following benefit event at Casa Nueva (this is from the Athens News):
Books for Prisoners Benefit with Chris Monday, Mike Elliott & Friends, Octopus & Owl, Queen Bee & The Honey Don'ts, and 150 cent. Benefit for Athens Books for Prisoners, a non-profit group that sends books and letters to prison inmates in Ohio. The show is free but financial donations and books are encouraged and welcomed. 10 p.m. Casa Cantina.

I STRONLY suggest you watch this interview with Bill Clinton from this morning on Morning Joe.
This was NOT part of your podcast. You should watch it.

Now, if this link does not bring up the video directly, it might play right here if I did this right...

It's the hypocrisy I can't stand!
You'll have a better time with today's lecture if you bring with you the handouts on fallacies and critical thinking you should have read for last week!

Folks, this article dove-tails nicely with the talk of poverty that will occur over the coming weeks...
I don't mind corporations...I just think they need to be well regulated.

As you read this article, notice all the "passing-of-the-buck" by the three companies involved due to both the possible financial and criminal penalties facing them...
