YOU CAN SEE UA’S NEWEST COMMERCIAL DURING SUPER BOWL ON FEB. 1
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
To invite prospective students to attend our Campus Visit Day on Feb. 16, the University will launch its newest television commercial this Sunday during the local broadcast of the Super Bowl on WOIO, Channel 19. The 30-second spot, which features several of our students and President Proenza describing the amazing campus transformations occurring as the New Landscape for Learning project nears completion, is slated to air at the end of the second quarter. The spot also will air during prime time and news programming on WOIO, WKYC, WUAB, WEWS, WJW, WAOH, Time Warner Cable, Adelphia Cable and Massillon Cable during a two-week run, Feb. 1-15.

This year will be the fifth time that a University of Akron commercial has been a part of the local Super Bowl broadcast. The local Super Bowl spot is very cost-effective, since it reaches nearly 1.6 million people in our local viewing area as part of the only TV program during which people actually want to watch the commercials, at a cost that is a tiny fraction of that paid by national advertisers for the same opportunity.

Mydoom Worm
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
The W32/Mydoom worm propagates through generating SMTP email as an attachment within an email. It infects MicrosoftR, WindowsR, 9x/ME, NT4, 2000, 2003 and XP-based computers.

If you receive the worm through email, some of the subject lines used include: Error, hello, HELLO, hi, HI, Mail Delivery System, Mail Transaction Failed, Server Request, status, test and Test. If you double click to open the file, Notepad opens and lines of garbage are displayed.

Also, the worm copies itself to the KaZaa Shared Directory with the following filenames: nuke2004, office_crack, rootkitXP, strip-girl-2.0bdcom_patches, activation_crack, icq2004-final and winamp.

Due to the many vulnerabilities in the KaZaa file sharing application, the Information Technology Services Division strongly suggests not running KaZaa on any computer connected to the University’s network or any computer which connects to the internet through the University’s network.

Computer Solutions has developed a CD with the fix for McAfee. The free CD can be picked up from the Computer Help Desk in Bierce Library, Room 69.

However, you can also download the fix directly from the Internet. If you are currently using McAfee Virus protection (standard on UA PC’s), you can download a fix. Click on “4319 Minimum DAT” or the most current version to update your anti-virus software.

If you are not currently using McAfee, there is a free utility tool, Stinger, that detects, cleans and repairs systems infected by Mydoom. It can also be downloaded from this link.

If you have questions, please contact the Help Desk at (330) 972-6888.

Turkish Movie Night Feb. 6

The Turkish Student's Association will be hosting a Turkish Movie Night on Friday, February 6, from 7:00-9:00 p.m. in the Student Union Theatre. The movie, "Vizontele," will be in Turkish with English subtitles.

Plot: Pronounce the title of this observant comedy a few times and you’ll realize what it means: “television,” a new marvel planned to be installed in a small, insular village in southeastern Turkey in 1974 by state officials. Townsfolk react with fear, wonder and anticipation; the owner of the area’s lone cinema sees his audience (and community stature) fall like, well, bad ratings. For traditionalists TV represents the devil, while entrepreneurs look to it as a business opportunity. However, for the town’s repairman, “Crazy Emin,” the question is how to get the thing to work.

"Vizontele" has been shown in various international festivals:
Cleveland International Film Festival, OH, USA, 2002
Rotterdam International Film Festival, Holland, 2001
Cologne MittelMeer Film Festival, Germany, 2001
Taos Talking Picture Film Festival, NM, USA, 2002
Istanbul International Film Festival, Istanbul, Turkey, 2001

Kaplan, in partnership with the Counseling, Testing and Career Center, will be offering a campus-wide opportunity for UA students to take free practice GMAT, GRE, LSAT, MCAT and DAT tests administered under simulated testing conditions on Saturday, February 7, from 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. in the Polsky Building.

Kaplan’s Test Drive is a terrific opportunity for prospective business, graduate, law, medical and dental students to answer a critical question, "If I took the exam today, how would I score?"

Last year, tens of thousands of Kaplan Test Drive participants assessed their test-taking skills while learning valuable strategies to help them ace the real test. Since admission to law, business, graduate, medical and dental school is fierce, a high score on an entrance exam is crucial to the admissions process.

To register for Kaplan’s Test Drive, please call 1-800-KAP-TEST or visit http://www.kaptest.com/testdrive/.
