Exercises on the Chinese Numerals

Each Chinese textbook by Polina Shinkina contains exercises on the Chinese numerals!

Now I can perform all arithmetic operations in Chinese! The arithmetic computations such as addition, subtraction, division and multiplication in Chinese are no more a problem for me!

One can gradually master arithmetic operations in Chinese using each of Polina Shinkina’s textbooks!

For more information please refer to The Chinese Numerals for Businessmen by Polina Shinkina http://www.lulu.com/content/e-book/the-chinese-numerals-for-businessmen/19124210 or in each Chinese textbook by Polina Shinkina on http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/polina985

PA on interdisciplinarity at UW

PA for research project on interdisciplinarity (apply by 9/14)

Terms: 20 hrs/wk, including health benefits and tuition remission.

Period of employment: starting  September 21 and continuing through the end of the fall semester, with the possibility of extension through June 30, 2011.

Position description: We are looking for a half-time project assistant for a wide-ranging research project focused on the nature and evolution of interdisciplinary science at the Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery. The assistant will work on many different aspects of the project, including but not limited to: (1) creating a historical archive, (2) conducting interviews, (3) observing public outreach events, (4) preparing grants. The assistant will also be expected to attend and contribute to regular project meetings.

Qualifications: This position requires considerable initiative, as well as the inclination and capacity to work on complex tasks with limited guidance. For instance, we might ask you to create a user-friendly index for a large batch of documents or pull together a summary of popular media reports. Although we’ll give you goals and deadlines, you must be able to structure your own time and ask for help when you need it.

This position requires also requires tact, organization and follow-through. After an initial training period, you’ll be setting up and conducting interviews with a wide range of people. We don’t expect you to be a perfect interviewer at the outset, but we do expect you to demonstrate consistent professionalism and work to develop your interviewing skills.

We will be looking for candidates who have experience with social science research methods such as interviewing, ethnographic observation, social network analysis and coding of qualitative data—although we would also encourage less experienced candidates who have a particularly strong interested in the subject matter to apply. A background in one of the many fields that contribute to the social study of science, technology and medicine would also be useful.

For a proactive, self-motivated student assistant, this position offers a solid opportunity to gain research experience at many levels, including data gathering, data analysis and potentially making creative contributions to our evolving research agenda. We expect that most qualified applicants will be doctoral students.

To apply: PRIOR TO September 14, send a copy of your CV and a brief letter describing your academic program, research interests and relevant experience to nfeinstein@wisc.edu

Looking for Roommates for 2br apt (Madison west)

I currently live by myself in a condo on the west side. There are 3 bedrooms, 1 large one and 2 regular sized ones. I'm asking a different price based on what kind of living arrangement we have but the price will always include, internet, all utilities, dishwasher, garbage disposal, parking spot, in unit laundry, weight room, sauna, and gathering area.There is also underground parking available for $50 a month and extra storage available for $10 a month. I am the property manager of the unit so if anything goes wrong I'll be on site to make sure it gets taken care of in a speedy manner.

I don't smoke, do any drugs, and rarely drink. I am currently a graduate student at the UW so I spend most of my time downtown. I'm kind of a nerd/geek so it would prob help if you were at least a little nerdy too. But in general its a quiet neighborhood with lots to do.

The location is extremely convenient and is by Elver Park, West Towne mall, and Woodmans.

If you are a couple: $650
I would give you guys the large bedroom, I would be in one of the smaller rooms, and we could use the 3rd room as a study or extra storage.

If you are an individual: $450
I would give you one of the regular sized rooms. If I eventually rent out the other regular sized room, I would lower your rent to 350 but I would make sure you approved of the new roommate.

If you are 2 individuals: $350 each
I would give each of you one of the regular sized rooms.

Don't hesitate to ask any questions or request to stop by and see the place.

Large closets.

Hi all, I am starting a job at the university and need to set up a bank account for direct deposit - I used to use Bank of America, but since there are no branch offices (or even B of A ATMs) anywhere nearby (the closest one is 70 miles away, according to their website, though there's a home loan office in town)..

Does anyone have any recommendations for a bank in Madison?
