In other news, the SPI Team has welcomed Rachel Lim as our newest summer intern. Rachel is joining us on break from the University of Virginia, where next semester she will be in her fourth year of study for a BA in English with a focus on digital communication studies. Welcome Rachel!

We also looked into how spending the majority of your day sitting down can have some serious health implications. Check out “Talk Amongst Yourselves: Lions, Tigers, & Chairs?” for more information on these risks and on the recent trend towards stand-up desks. And, be sure to let us know where you ‘stand’ on this issue by taking our new poll in the right sidebar.

Don’t forget to check out the June Pledge Videos on the Video Portal for an assortment of useful videos for June’s pledge-drives.

Finally, a few of you have noticed a delay in your TV Schedules this past week. This has been fixed and all data should be fresh. Check out our TV Schedules Resource page for more information on the Tune-In schedule modules.
