3.) Dress in Blue Day for Colon Cancer Awareness
All Day March 1 Everywhere
Free
UofL’s Kentucky Cancer Program is encouraging everyone to wear blue on Friday, March 1, for National Dress in Blue Day, as part of Colon Cancer Awareness Month. Colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer related deaths in the country as well as in Kentucky. It kills nearly 900 people each year here in our state. Colon cancer screening saves lives, but unfortunately many people are not being screened. Please wear blue and help raise awareness of this preventable disease.

Miscellaneous
4.) Postal Services: Hazardous materials reminder
Postal Services has added a new Web page on hazardous materials that has a brief list of materials that are considered hazardous and cannot be mailed. Look under the “Off Campus Mail” tab. Also, a reminder has been added to our meter card. Click on the “UofL Meter Card” link at the right of Postal’s pages under “Resources.” This would be a good time to print yourself a new master copy of the card.

4:30 p.m. Feb. 18 Room 300, Bingham Humanities Building, Belknap Campus
Free and open to the public
By 2050 whites will lose their majority status, and many whites already live in cities and states in which they are a minority. How is this changing the political consciousness and self-understanding of whites themselves? How are whites reacting to the impending changes? What are the possibilities for new developments in white subjectivity? In this talk, Linda Martín Alcoff, feminist philosopher at Hunter College, will explore the future of whiteness within a multicultural society.
