In memory
The Western flag adorning the tower of University College will be flown at half-mast today in honour of a Western employee who recently passed away.

Lori Dos Santos lost her battle with a brain tumour and passed away this passed Sunday at London Health Sciences University Hospital, said Marty Kreiswirth, the dean of graduate studies. She was 45.

Mother of Kyle and wife of Mario Dos Santos, Lori dedicated 15 years to Western and worked in the faculty of law and school of journalism. She last held a position as recruitment officer in the graduate studies department, Kreiswirth said.

For those interested in commemorating her life, Kreiswirth confirmed the celebration of her life will be held today at the Lloyd R. Needham Funeral Chapel at 2 p.m., located at 520 Dundas St.

Donations in Dos Santos’ honour can be made to the London Health Sciences Centre, the Canadian Cancer Society or the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada. Tributes may also be left at Lori’s remembrance website at www.mem.com/display/biography

More Middle East messages
Two speakers will be on campus today to offer an inside look at the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

Mat Abramsky, president of the Israel Action Committee — which is organizing the event — said the “Let’s Talk Peace” event will be a “fantastic opportunity,” with over 400 students expected to attend.

The speakers are New York radio personality Rabbi Tovia Singer and Walid Shoebat, a former member of the Palestinian Liberation Organization. Abramsky said the event’s purpose is to “bring a positive image of Israel and further the debate to finding a solution.”

Singer and Shoebat will be speaking at the Richard Ivey School of Business, Rm. 1R40, at 5 p.m.. Tickets will not be available at the door, but can be picked up free at the IAC table in the University Community Centre atrium.

Exciting and sassy tax volunteers needed
The University Students’ Council is looking for volunteers (no specific skills required), to assist during the free March Income Tax Clinic.

Volunteers are required to attend one training session on either Saturday, Feb. 14 or Saturday, Mar. 13, explained USC Income Tax Clinic Commissioner Geraldine Goco, adding representatives from the Canada Customs and Revenue Agency will provide all the training and skills required.

During the clinic, volunteers will be asked to put in a minimum of two two-hour shifts. “[The shifts will be flexible and] no volunteers will be scheduled to volunteer during class time,” she stated.

Goco said all interested students must submit an application, available in the USC’s main office — Rm. 340 of the University Community Centre — by 4 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 28. Applications are also available online, at www.usc.uwo.ca/tax.

“The clinic is a valuable service provided to students and for volunteers,” Goco said.
