hello friends!

I am posting to pimp out a website produced by the people I work for. if you have studied in australia, this website is for you!

it allows you to rate your university on a variety of different scales. people who are thinking of studying can then go and have a look at what you've said, good or bad.

if you are a current student, make sure you fill in your uni-provided email address so that you can verify your status as a student of your particular university - as a verified student, your comments will be that much more valuable to those prospective students out there.

past or current students of any australian higher ed institution, come one come all!

Hi everyone, hope you had a great Christmas without too many cares.

Sadly, sometimes Christmas is far from care-free, with the costs and stresses of getting supplies getting some people down that they can almost forget it is a time to celebrate. I'm happy to tell you that there IS a solution.

From the bottom of my heart, I can recommend the Chrisco Christmas hamper club...

With a little bit of planning, you can spend the year paying off supplies little by little. You will hardly notice that the money has gone each week, but come Christmas time, it will all add up to a wonderful hamper of Christmas goods being delievered to your house. The sooner you order and start paying, the smaller your weekly/fortnightly/mothly (whatever suits you best) payments will be.

The full range of hamper choices can be viewed online, or you can request a catalogue by calling 1800 28 28 28.

It may sound like a well-worn advertising slogan, but never a truer word was spoken when they say you can save for a magical Christmas with Chrisco.

I am not a troll, nor do I make any profit from posting this. I simply believe in this program, and am sure you will too if you give it a go.

I am calling out for papers, articles, art or any other means of expression for my Post-Graduate women's newsletter. The newsletter is to be distributed electronically in Australia and I am advertising for postgraduate women or women who have recently graduated from a postgraduate degree to submit an entry. Of course articles that are a shorter version of a paper/thesis from a research student are most welcome. Creative entries of creative writing, art, poetry or a review are welcome too. If you do not have anything of such nature but would prefer to write a short article on a topic, topics recently discussed regarding postgraduate women here have been gender balance, children and postgraduate study, safety issues on campus and sexism within student politics. Please respond with an item for entry, a title, your "everyday" name at either my livejournal or my email address capa_women@yahoo.com.au
You are most welcome to submit to my first australian postgraduate women's newsletter that will be distributed to postgrad student offices across Australia that are affiliated with CAPA electronically.

Best wishes,

CAPA's women's officer for 2005 & 2006

It has to be said -

This is completely off the topic of Swinburne, but it needs to be said. If you don't like it (and I don't see how you could not like it), then feel free to delete this post.

As we all know, the multiple tsunamis around the Indian Ocean have had devistating consequences for many, many people. The death toll is astonishing, and the missing toll even more so. The destruction and death in this part of the world is causing the disease rate to climb to epidemic proportions. There is not enough food and medicine to treat the survivors of this terrible tragedy, and it is up to us as fellow human beings to help.

If you would like to donate money to help the victims of this horrific event, please visit www.cnn.com/2004/WORLD/asiapcf/12/28/tsunami.aidsites/ and pick an aid organization. Any penny you can contribute will be of great help.

Humans are not the only victims effected by this terrible event, though. Endangered sea turtle habitats have been virtually destroyed and thousands of sea turtles have been killed as a result of this horrific event. Conservation programs are vital to the world's sea turtle population's survival, but the dead halt in tourism in that region of the world has left these wonderful programs without the funding they need to rebuild. We, as fellow creatures of our wonderful earth, cannot let the world's sea turtles perish.

If you would like to help rebuild the sea turtle conservation programs effected by the tsunamis, please visit www.seaturtle.org and make a donation.

This is a green sea turtle, one of the many species of endangered sea turtles that these programs benefits.

To all of you who have already donated to aid organizations and other charities helping victims of the tsunamis, thank you.

...and hopefully not the last! We need an LJ forum for Swinburne students.

My name is Dev, and I'm a 21 year old chick originally from Oregon in the United States. I live here basically because my husband is Australian, and I've always wanted to live abroad.

It is official. I'm going to be starting the TAFE course in Design in January 2005. We usually don't get to make folios over in the US, so I need one to get into the course I want. I'd like to take the Bachelor in Interior Design after this TAFE course, followed by the Masters in Interior Design. I also wouldn't mind doing interior architecture as a minor, but we'll see what I feel like after this year.

So yeah. That's my intro. Cheers! I'll spread the word about the community when classes start.
