I’m Annie Maxwell… Dan …and I’m Dan Magro. It’s the third week in November Dan and Annie …and you’re watching Student Update! Fade to Black Moving Shot IN on Dan and Annie, then, cue Hosts Annie Well here we are again. I hope you all enjoyed our last episode! We have another great show for you guys, and hope you’ll stick around! Dan Without wasting another second, let’s start our STUDENT-TER-TAIN- MENT block! Fade to Black, then shortly after, Fade Up Page 2 of 8 Dan We have a bunch of movies hitting the big screen this holiday weekend, the first of which is the Billy Bob Thorton/John Cusac collaboration Ice Harvest. It's Christmas Eve in rainy, icebound Wichita, Kansas, and this year Charlie just might have something to celebrate. Charlie, an attorney for the sleazy businesses of Wichita, and his unsavory associate, the steely Vic, have just successfully embezzled $2,147,000 from Kansas City boss Bill Guerrard. Even so, the real prize for Charlie would be the stunning Renata, who runs the Sweet Cage strip club. Charlie's fondest Christmas wish is to slip out of town with Renata. But, as daylight fades and a storm whirls, everyone from Charlie's drinking buddy Pete to the local police begin to wonder just what exactly is in Charlie's Christmas stocking. For Charlie, the 12 hours of Christmas Eve are filled with nonstop twists and turns, both on the ice and off. Annie Then we have Yours, Mine & Ours The remake of a 1968 film that starred Lucille Ball and Henry Fonder, YOURS, MINE, & OURS adds a comma and an ampersand to the title but keeps everything else pretty much the same. Rene Russo stars as a widow with ten children, and Dennis Quaid as a bereaved man with eight kids. They fall in love, marry, and make the best of their zany new life with a blended family. Dan Next we have Just Friends. This romantic comedy stars Ryan Reynolds as a former high school geek turned trendy Los Angeles music executive. When he gets stranded in his New Jersey home town due to bad weather with a superstar singer he is trying to sign, he finds himself reunited with his high school crush and discovers she is his true love. The film co-stars Anna Faris, Amy Smart and Chris Klein and is being directed by Roger Kumble. Annie You liked his hits like Burn, and Yeah, now you can enjoy his acting talents as well. Usher takes the big screen In The Mix. When New York's hottest nightclub deejay Darrell saves a mob boss's life, he is rewarded for his bravery with the job of watching over the Don's beautiful daughter Dolly. The sparks soon begin to fly between this Page 3 of 8 attractive couple from very different worlds, against her formidable father's wishes. The Don, however, has other things on his mind like quashing a potential war with an arch-rival and controlling a young, ruthless challenger to his throne. In the end, all's fair in love and gangster warfare in this hip romantic comedy. Annie Next we have the highly anticipated big screen take on the Broadway hit Rent. Rent's diverse and unconventional community is made up of impassioned and defiant individuals. Roger is an aspiring songwriter who has emotionally shut down after his girlfriend's suicide. Despite his attraction, he is reluctant to start a new romance with his downstairs neighbor Mimi Marquez, an exotic dancer struggling with baggage of her own. Roger's roommate Mark is a filmmaker trying to balance art and commerce. His girlfriend Maureen, a self-indulgent performance artist, recently left him for a lawyer named Joanne. Also part of this close-knit circle is Tom Collins, a professor of philosophy who, after being mugged, is rescued by his soul mate, a high-spirited street drummer, Angel Shunard. Benny, who alienated his friends after he married their landlord's daughter, has reneged on his promise to provide rent-free artist space to his bohemian friends. Once a close friend, he is now viewed as the enemy since threatening them with eviction. Dan The we have Syriana. a political thriller that unfolds against the intrigue of the global oil industry. From the players brokering back- room deals in Washington to the men toiling in the oil fields of the Persian Gulf, the film's multiple storylines weave together to illuminate the human consequences of the fierce pursuit of wealth and power. As a career CIA operative begins to uncover the disturbing truth about the work he has devoted his life to, an up-and- coming oil broker (Matt Damon) faces an unimaginable family tragedy and finds redemption in his partnership with an idealistic Gulf prince. A corporate lawyer (Jeffrey Wright) faces a moral dilemma as he finesses the questionable merger of two powerful U.S. oil companies, while across the globe, a disenfranchised Pakistani teenager falls prey to the recruiting efforts of a charismatic cleric. Each plays their small part in the vast and complex system that powers the industry, unaware of the explosive impact their lives will have upon the world. Page 4 of 8 Annie Finally, we have 39 Pounds of Love 39. this is the inspirational and humorous non-fiction account of a remarkable man and a remarkable journey. Amy was diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) -- an extremely rare and often fatal form of muscular atrophy that severely limits his physical growth and movement yet at 34 years of age -- he continues to outlive a doctor’s prediction of life expectancy by 28 years. And counting. Amy, who weighs only 39 pounds, works in Israel as a 3D animator and creates his art despite the fact that his bodily motion is limited to a single finger on his left hand and in doing so, continues to redefine notions of a “limited” life. Dan I have the new music for Tuesday the 22nd. Amarentine is the name of symphonic and harmonious Enya’s new release. Laos System of a Down releases Hypnotize, county/WB hit sitcom star Reba McIntyre comes out with Reba’s #1. Scot Strapp releases the Great Divide and the soundtrack for the movie-musical based on the hit musical, which was based on a hit movie…the producers comes out as well. Annie That raps up out StudEntertainment Block for this week! Thanks to rotten tomatoes for the movie info and stuff! When we come back we have a few members of the Bucks County Community College’s Print Making Society here to sit with Kelly Wilson in the Club Corner for a little chat more about what they do! That should be very interesting considering I didn’t know we had a print making society! (Dan and Annie Talk) Motion Shot Out Away from Anchors and Slowly Fade to Black SET UP CC - Fade in, MOTION SHOT IN, CUE HOST Kelly Hello and welcome back! I’m Kelly Wilson, Special Student Update Club Corner Correspondent! Today I’m sitting with __________ from Hillel. Welcome to Student Update KELLY SWITCHES TO CLUB CORNER SHEET AND CONDUCTS INTERVIEW...WHEN FINISHED READ LINE BELOW Page 5 of 8 Kelly Well that was truly a great interview. I really learned a lot about the Hillel. Now it’s time for our first “Centurion Moment.” FADE OUT THEN UP AGAIN Kelly I will be reporting the Centurion Moment for the journalist Janine Logue (Ja-nean Lowg) who was unable to make it in today. The costs of college are rising and Bucks students are feeling the burden of coming up with enough money to pay for tuition, books, and the tons of other costs of school. Nellie Mae, a private student loan company, did a study in 2002 and found out that on average students are leaving their two-year school owing almost nineteen thousand dollars in student loans. Several students have talked to the Centurion about their experience trying to get financial help from Bucks. Chrissy Griffith, a 20-year-old Communications Performance major said that she had to go to the financial aid office several times before anyone could answer her questions about student loans. And that it felt to her like they were just blowing her off. Another student, Bill Chernay, a 23-year-old Math major said that he doesn’t even bother applying anymore because of the hassle. He would like to see Bucks institute one on one financial advisory meetings to help students make the right choices. Other students also felt like Bucks was failing to help them understand financial aid and student loans. Some have suggested seminars or even required orientations. Without financial guidance students sometimes feel like their only options are credit cards. But an important thing to remember is that your credit card company wants you to pay now, not when you graduate like student loans. And a late payment on a credit card can stay on your credit report for up to seven years. Your credit report is sort of like a grade that companies give you based on several things, but mainly on your payment history and amount of outstanding credit. So if you are late on more than a few payments to your credit card and you have maxed out your credit cards, you might find yourself denied for a loan in the future. Page 6 of 8 Other schools in our area are taking steps to make sure that students understand financial aid and are applying for everything that is available to them, before turning to loans or credit cards. Temple for example has financial counselors on staff. Mercer County community college has a loan officer available to students on a walk-in basis. Arcadia’s website offers a free financial aid estimate form to help their students plan a budget better. On the Bucks website you will find 13 pages in the financial aid section, and not one of them lists a phone number to call with questions. Montgomery County Community College, not only lists their financial aid office’s phone number prominently on their page, but also offers a slide show presentation about financial aid on the website. So it looks as though, at least for the time being, Bucks students are going to have to learn about financial aid and students loans on their own. Some great places to start are the Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency website which is www.pheaa.org. They handle state grants and financial aid or you can visit the US Department of Education website at www.fafsa.ed.gov for federal grants and financial aid information. And of course you can always visit the websites of other colleges in our area. Montgomery county community college’s website is www.MC3.edu or Temple can be found at www.temple.edu. Thank you Jeanne, and when we come back, Dan and Annie have your campus news FADE OUT Dan We’re almost through, but now we want to see what’s happening on campus? Fade to Black, Fade Up Page 7 of 8 Annie Eric Mintel and his quartet perform “A Jazz Holiday” at Bucks County Community College in Newtown Saturday, November 26 at 7:30 p.m. The third annual concert features music from “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” the Council Rock High School South Vocal Ensemble, and original straight-ahead jazz. Dan “Many people will remember this music from when they were growing up,” says Mintel, noting that the Charles Schulz television special is often a child’s first exposure to jazz. “It reminds me of a simpler time. I’m always trying to perpetuate that in my music, to create endearing, familiar melodies with their own twist. The child within me comes alive in the music.” Says Mintle. For tickets, call 215-968-8462. Annie Next is Student Life News. The Ski Club has a day trip to Hunter Mountain on December 8, 2005. The cost is $60.00 for Ski Club members, $65.00 for students, and $70 for members of the community. The trip includes transportation, all mountain lift ticket, and full course dinner. Departure is at 5:00am with return at 9:30pm. Contact: Joe Walsh at 215 968-8289 Dan There are no social science trips this week but remember to update your id card with the current sticker.
