Muslim Students Association?

Hi, I'm the same religion 201 student that posted a short time ago (Thanks everyone for their awesome responses!)

Anyway, while trying to write an email to the Muslim Student Association (asking persmission to observe one of their worship services) I realized they don't have a "send" button.

Is there any other way I can contact them? I looked all around the site and couldn't find anything... Please help!

So i'm a junior and I need to place into math 124 for my major (for next quarter). I seriously suck at math. I mean, I rule at chemistry, but I'm just a notoriously bad performer in math classes. How hard is it to place in? Is anyone else out there that's terrible at math that placed into 124? Just looking for general, helpful hints on how to school this test. Thanks guys!

Completely unrelated- have you guys seen the dude at Chipotle goes up and says "WELCOME TO CHIPOTLE!" every time anyone walks in? It's rad!

Happy Thursday, all!

(I have been asked to pass this on in the name of science. Or, if you'd prefer, computational linguistics. Please consider helping out - the universe would greatly appreciate it! :) Oh, and there is an article in today's Daily partially about the email contact person listed below.)

There is an opportunity in the next few days to play the role of a
traveler to an exotic place, while volunteering as a subject in a study of
user interface design. The "interface" is the part of a system that a user
actually interacts with.

A team of students in a UW computer-science course is designing the
interface for a translating camera phone. The user, a traveler who doesn't
know the local language, would take pictures of signs, menus, and other
texts and submit the photos to get the texts translated into their own
languages. Our job is to design the interface so it is easy, efficient,
and understandable. For this purpose, we need to ask a few volunteer
subjects to use a rough draft of the interface to carry out some typical
tasks. The session will last no more than an hour and a half and can be
scheduled for a convenient time and place.

Sessions will take place during the period from the 10th to the 12th of
November (Friday through Sunday).

If you would like to participate in this study as a volunteer subject,
please send your answers to these questions to Jonathan Pool, at

1. What languages can you read?

2. What parts of the world have you traveled in?

3. Have you already used a mobile camera phone?

4. Are you a computer novice, regular user, power user, or programmer?

Once we get your answers and are ready to schedule session, we'll contact

Retaking class

A question from a Comparative Literature major (don't laugh):
I'm looking at Comp. Lit. 396 which I've taken before, but since each quarter has a new subject would taking it again (because - Nabokov!) fulfill a different requirement towards the degree? The "max. 10 credits" suggests to me that one can take it twice, but I wanted a second opinion from you fine people.
Thanks for your time,
~ Emily

"Later Thursday, followers of U.S. economist and former fringe presidential candidate Lyndon LaRouche briefly interrupted Schwarzenegger's speech at a meeting with the American Chamber of Commerce in Mexico City. One protester wore a Terminator mask and a polka-dotted dress. As security guards quickly escorted the group out of the room, the audience gave Schwarzenegger a standing ovation."

I guess they needed to get away from the rain on the UW campus for a while...
