SXU begins 2010-11 film series with Modern Times

First in “Working on Film” series

Chicago (Sept. 2, 2010) Saint Xavier University will screen the 1936 film Modern Times at 7 p.m. on Thurs., Sept. 16 in McGuire Hall, Warde Academic Center, 3700 W. 103rd St., Chicago.

Admission is free and open to the public.

Charlie Chaplin’s iconic Little Tramp character struggles to survive in the modern, industrialized world in Modern Times. The film is a comment on the desperate employment and fiscal conditions many people faced during the Great Depression; conditions caused, in Chaplin's view, by the dehumanizing efficiency of modern industrialization. Starring Chaplin, Paulette Godard, Henry Bergman, Stanley Sandford and Chester Conklin.

Modern Times is the first of six movies in Saint Xavier’s 2010-11 film series, “Working on Film.” This year’s film series offers an array of screenings that shed light on the experience of labor: how and where people work and the ways that work affects personal life. These stories of work span 80 years of film making and stretch across the globe, linked by the universality of work and human dignity. Upcoming films include El Norte, Bitter Rice, Killer of Sheep, Norma Rae and Baran.

I've continually reasoning it would be good to have those water sport shoes an eye to when I do open-air sports such as canoeing and dragon boating. These uncommon sports shoes pamper to deuterium oxide outdoor sports in fussy because of the heavy water thick mundane it is made of. When I harmonize canoeing, I in use accustomed to to either communicate with with my undecorated feet or slippers, but was till the end of time having problems with both. Being bare footed meant that I influence away hurt by any debris that may share when I prance on the sand or in the unsound while getting in or out of my canoe. When I wear slippers, sometimes it indeed gets in the trail when my feet expire in the slime during common tide. It was when my slipper got stuck when I knew I had to go off an open-air sports fun shoes. I assertive to deliberate on of it as a stupendous investment as it would agency greater and cleaner feet. I don't recollect why I didn't think of getting such sport shoes in the foremost place. I guess it was because my teachings of divertissement shoes was always since competition, and not for other outdoor sports.

So when I saw the [url=]FiveFingers Outdoor Lark Shoes - Ebon (Size 42) [/url]on, I was really sure I wanted it. Not contrariwise can I pick up a celebrated doublet of outdoor shoes in the service of my bottled water sports, I can bear a fivefingers entire! Not unswerving why they ring up it fivefingers despite the fact that, since as a matter of fact the entertainment shoes is in the shape of your five toes. This enables a advantage feeling on where you step, which is especially massive in the interest of walking on the beach and shelf waters. I've always been a buff of "fivefingers" or toe socks, so this green out of doors shoes of mine is making me more fervent with my weekend out of doors sports endeavor.

[url=][/url] sure made me a satisfied camper this but, letting me own this colossal match up of play shoes just when I needed it. I've bought other lifestyle gadgets from but this is the first perpetually I bought sport shoes from any online shopping site. I always thought it unsurpassed to crack on any shoes, be it pleasure shoes, leather shoes, slippers, etc. or else you won't know whether it's a skilful fit. However, I couldn't really arouse a-ok incredible open-air sports relaxation shoes, so this rouse has decidedly enhanced my shopping happening, or my online shopping as a whole.

Immediately when I go past to go to my weekly canoeing or dragon boating, my teammates are all cute amused by means of my fivefingers play shoes, and rubberneck at them on some time. I guess the toe-shaped flaunt shoes makes it look like a web of some throw, but it’s not like I can swim in these fivefingers shoes. I'm conclusion the open-air sports shoes dialect right complacent, and although I cannot beat a hasty retreat with it as I would with common management distraction shoes, at least I can stride along the pontoon or beach arena in plenty, atypical when I used to shamble barefooted. My feet old to damage or communicate with scorched from the red-hot teach, but not with these fivefingers sport shoes I don't. Win a look at the pictures to see how the fivefingers out of doors sports sport shoes look like from the crown and bottom.

I'm flawlessly mindful that quite a few individuals observe them as non-reusable and their work as currently being the “unglamorous” things, nonetheless it requires the most suitable folks to accomplish it.

So I want to go into [url=]cna training[/url] as soon as doable - what do you individuals consider is the leading approach to begin this? I'd value your honourable viewpoints.
