3.) Post-Colonial Film Series - Karmen Gei
1 p.m. April 11 Room 139, Shumaker Building
Free
The story of tempestuous Carmen, first told in a short story by Prosper Merimee and made famous in an opera by Georges Bizet, gets a new and striking modern-dress adaptation in this provocative drama with music. Karmen Gei is an inmate in a women’s prison in Senegal; lusty, impulsive, and looking out for herself at all times. Karmen’s uninhibited dancing and sensual demeanor excites the Sapphic passions of the prison’s warden, whose seduction sets off a chain of epic events.

Miscellaneous
8.) Whey protein for pollen allergy? Check Natural Standard database from Kornhauser Health Sciences Library
Search “pollen allergy” on the Natural Standard, an evidence-based alternative medicine database, to read the evidence for using whey protein and other alternative therapies for pollen allergies. Natural Standard uses published scientific evidence to review clinical effectiveness and safety of alternative therapies, herbals and nutritional supplements. It’s available from the Kornhauser Health Sciences Library homepage.

9.) Journal impact factors: what are they, how to find them
The impact factor is a measure reflecting the average number of citations to recent articles published in a journal. It is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field, with journals with higher impact factors deemed to be more important than those with lower ones. Use the Journal Citation Reports database, available on the Kornhauser Health Sciences Library homepage, to determine the impact factor for a journal.
