Seeking Host Families for Islam Summer Institute

The 2009 Summer Institute on Islam, Intercultural Relations, and Leadership is an extraordinary training opportunity co-sponsored by Pathways for Mutual Respect and the Yale Center for Faith and Culture's Reconciliation Program. Pathways for Mutual Respect is an educational nonprofit founded in 2006 by a current Yale grad student following his unusual experience as an American studying at an Iranian university. SIIIRL's unique curriculum is designed to equip young leaders and scholars to engage their professional, academic, and faith communities on issues of reconciliation and peacebuilding, particularly between the West and the Muslim world. SIIIRL will provide participants with a deeper, nuanced, and culturally informed understanding of the Islamic world. (http://www.pfmr.org)

Interns wishing to do their own research will have a chance to utilize WATER's constantly growing library as well as consult with our experienced staff through periodic in-house seminars.  Give us a call if you have any questions about the program, 301.589.2509.  (If the application is no longer attached to this email, contact megankathleensullivan@gmail.com)

Found/Needed

ISO Storage Space

Jason and Mary Emily Duba need a place to store belongings for about 10 months (July '09-May '10?).  Largest pieces are a double bed that comes apart, a rocking chair, two wicker chests, and two bikes. No other furniture.  If you have a non-damp basement, attic, or spare room, we would really appreciate it. It would save us from having to rent a locker (around $900 for 10 months), and since we're going to be volunteering for the year we're pretty tight on cash. Contact: maryemily.wells@yale.edu.

ISO: Ride to Hartford Over the Summer

I am hoping to be commuting to Hartford for the summer and was wondering if anyone else is planning on doing the same and has some idea on how best to do that. I do not have a car and my google skills are coming up with unfavorable results.  Or if you have a car and wouldn't mind me tagging along(I will pay for gas), please let me know. Contact: Irene.Murimi@yale.edu.

ISO: Website Help

I am in need of some web design help. I have a website for my writing work, and I made it myself, ergo, it looks like it was made in MS Paint. I'd really like for it to look more professional, so if you are skilled in web design (maybe Flash or XML - those are things, right?), I could greatly use your services. I'm willing to pay you in beer, Greek tutoring lessons, or, you know, cash. Contact: jessica.misener@yale.edu.

ISO: Digital Camera for the Summer

Does anyone have a simple digital camera that either John Helmstadter or I could borrow this summer? You can loan to whoever you like more and we will take extra special good care of it. We can repay you in cookies and awesome pictures of assorted things.  Long shot, but worth a try... Contact: frederica.ghesquiere@yale.edu.
