More on social media, Wednesday, Nov. 12

Chances to see Morgan Spurlock and "Super Size Me"

He'll be on campus at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 13, in the Silver Eagle Suite, UNT Union. Spurlock created and stars in the FX series "30 Days," and he'll discuss his work in "Super Size Me" and beyond.

Before his visit, catch his award-winning documentary "Super Size Me" in the Media Library, Chilton Hall, 3 p.m. Monday, Nov. 10, or later at 7 p.m. Monday, Lyceum.

Plan for the next two weeks

We'll try to finish reading reports this week and next. If you haven't completed one, you'll need to write up a report on one of the chapters from our extra reading and get that to me by Wednesday, Nov. 19.

"Smartest Guys in the Room" will be our DVD for the next two weeks; please prepare by reading the handout from last week.
