HIV/AIDS Community Information Services: Experiences in Serving Both At-Risk and HIV-Infected Populations

HIV/AIDS Community Information Services: Experiences in Serving Both At-Risk and HIV-Infected Populations


Information forms the basis for education, and currently education is the only weapon available to stem the spread of HIV/AIDS and to foster empathy toward individuals already affected by the disease. HIV/AIDS and Community Information Services provides readers with insight into the information construct within the AIDS arena and how that construct affects the provision of information services to the HIV/AIDS affected population. It will serve as an irreplaceable reference as the number of individuals with AIDS increases, creating a greater demand for information and making that information increasingly difficult to provide. While directories exist to assist with practical approaches to accessing HIV/AIDS-related information, none had served as a comprehensive resource concerning the nature of that information or the provision of information services. HIV/AIDS Community Information Services fills that void. It fosters the enlightenment of the general public concerning the true nature of HIV/AIDS, guides readers in providing information services-both educational and recreational-to individuals affected by HIV/AIDS, and encourages the dissemination of instructional materials to those individuals at risk for infection. In doing so, contributors provide readers with information about: the relationship between AIDS and the body of information concerning the disease the complex nature of HIV/AIDS-related information available HIV/AIDS information services information as a means for empowerment suggestions for future programs, potential collaboration efforts, and innovative servicesAn essential guide for information professionals, librarians, health educators, counselors, members of community-based AIDS service organizations, and individuals affected by HIV/AIDS, HIV/AIDS Community Information Services foster the creation, accession, collection, organization, dissemination, and sharing of information concerning the HIV/AIDS epidemic and promotes the provision of services

Handbook of Information and Communication Security

Handbook of Information and Communication Security


At its core, information security deals with the secure and accurate transfer of information. While information security has long been important, it was, perhaps, brought more clearly into mainstream focus with the so-called? Y2K? issue. Te Y2K scare was the fear that c- puter networks and the systems that are controlled or operated by sofware would fail with the turn of the millennium, since their clocks could lose synchronization by not recognizing a number (instruction) with three zeros. A positive outcome of this scare was the creation of several Computer Emergency Response Teams (CERTs) around the world that now work – operatively to exchange expertise and information, and to coordinate in case major problems should arise in the modern IT environment. Te terrorist attacks of 11 September 2001 raised security concerns to a new level. Te – ternational community responded on at least two fronts; one front being the transfer of reliable information via secure networks and the other being the collection of information about – tential terrorists. As a sign of this new emphasis on security, since 2001, all major academic publishers have started technical journals focused on security, and every major communi- tions conference (for example, Globecom and ICC) has organized workshops and sessions on security issues. In addition, the IEEE has created a technical committee on Communication and Information Security. Te? rst editor was intimately involved with security for the Athens Olympic Games of 2004.

The American Consultants Rx discount prescription cards are to be given free to anyone in need of help curbing the high cost of prescription drugs.

Due to the rising costs, unstable economics, and the mounting cost of prescriptions, American Consultants Rx Inc. (ACRX) a.k.a (ACIRX) an Atlanta based company was born in 2004. The ACRX discount prescription card program was created and over 25 million discount prescription cards were donated to over 18k organizations across the country to be distributed to those in need of prescription assistance free of charge since 2004.

The ACRX cards will offer discounts of name brand drugs of up to 40% off and up to 60% off of generic drugs.

This arrangement has been made to allow organizations an avenue to continue assisting their clients in the community until they receive their orders of the ACRX cards. ACRX made it possible for cards to be requested from online for individuals and organizations free of charge.

Teaching Information Fluency: How to Teach Students to Be Efficient, Ethical, and Critical Information Consumers

Teaching Information Fluency: How to Teach Students to Be Efficient, Ethical, and Critical Information Consumers


Teaching Information Fluency describes the skills and dispositions of information fluency adept searchers. Readers will receive in-depth information on what it takes to locate, evaluate, and ethically use digital information. The book realistically examines the abilities of Internet searchers today in terms of their efficiency and effectiveness in finding online information, evaluating it and using it ethically. Since the majority of people develop these skills on their own, rather than being taught, the strategies they invent may suffice for simple searches, but for more complex tasks, such as those required by academic and professional work, the average person s performance is adequate only about 50% of the time. The book is laid out in five parts: an introduction to the problem and how search engine improvements are not sufficient to be of real help, speculative searching, investigative searching, ethical use and applications of information fluency. The intent of the book is to provide readers ways to improve their performance as consumers of digital information and to help teachers devise useful ways to integrate information fluency instruction into their teaching, since deliberate instruction is needed to develop fluency. Since it is unlikely that dedicated class time will be available for such instruction, the approach taken embeds information fluency activities into classroom instruction in language arts, history and science. Numerous model lessons and resources are woven into the fabric of the text, including think-alouds, individual and group search challenges, discussions, assessments and curation, all targeted to Common Core State Standards as well as information fluency competencies.

All You Need Is Love… and Information: Caryl Churchill’s Love and Information

2014-02-17-LoveInformation0359.jpg

Left to Right
Top Row: Irene Sofia Lucio, Noah Galvin
Bottom Row: Karen Kandel, Adante Power, Zoë Winters, James Waterston, Lucas Caleb Rooney

I like to think of Caryl Churchill as the Emily Dickinson of the theatre world. Her dialogue sounds like the staccato rhythms of speech punctuated by dashes. Characters interrupt each other, speak over each other, and generally leave others (often characters and audience alike) to decipher what they’re actually talking about. Churchill’s reputation is understandably great, as her hand has given the theatre plays like Top Girls, Cloud Nine, A Number, and Far Away, just to name a few.

All of this is well and good, but sitting in the Minetta Lane Theatre and watching her latest offering, New York Theatre Workshop’s production of Love and Information, feels like an echo or a remix of a technique that at one point was unique and powerful. Though the excellent design, good performances, and trademark Churchill dialogue make this two-hour play interesting to watch, the word that comes to mind to describe the total effect is “unwieldy.”

Director James MacDonald and set designer Miriam Buether previously worked together on Cock, a Mike Barlett play that played at the Duke theater on 42nd Street. I saw that production and loved it, and I see the same powerful aesthetic at work here. The set it breathtaking and Christopher Shutt’s sound design adds to the effect of the jump-cut nature of the scenes. Yet I hesitate here, for the design was simultaneously too much for the play and my favorite part of the play.

What is this play about? Well, simply it is about love and information, both love as information and how we share information based on the kind of love we feel for the person with whom we’re sharing information. In this way the play represents a kind of impressionist painting, with single brush strokes appearing in the form of snippets of various lives, taken together to create a whole feeling rather than complete story.

This works quite well in the beginning, but as the play goes on, the moments in between the scenes seem to stretch out, and I found myself wondering if we needed a sound cue longer than the scene that it preceded. I would say that if anyone other than Caryl Churchill had written this play, it would have been cut dramatically if it ever even made it to this stage of production. This is an unfortunate problem in the theatre, where established playwrights tend to pass work through venues with less dramaturgy and shaping than younger playwrights.

Love and Information is not a bad play, but it also not a great play. Rather it is something in between that has been written by someone who I consider a great playwright. It is a good concept in an unwieldy package. My first thought after it was finished is that it will make a great high school or college production staple, as it has a sizable cast and could be done with incredibly minimal design.

There are also moments in this play when you remember you’re watching a Caryl Churchill piece. They occur when, in a few lines of dialogue that seem to say almost nothing, yet somehow draw an incredibly exacting picture of the lives of these characters. This play is full of these moments, but too full! We cannot absorb all of the nuances because the scenes keep coming and coming and do not let up. Too much of a good thing can exhaust an audience, and I felt others squirming as the play came to the middle.

Those of you who read me often know that I am always advocating for what’s best for the art, for the play. In this particular instance, less would be much more, and would lead to much more Love and Information.
