I shall post videos, graphs, news stories, and other material there. We shall use some of this material in class, and you may review the rest at your convenience. You will all receive invitations to post to the blog. (Please let me know if you do not get such an invitation.) I encourage you to use the blog in these ways:
To post questions or comments about the readings before we discuss them in class;
To follow up on class discussions with additional comments or questions.
To post relevant news items or videos.

There are only two major limitations: no coarse language, and no derogatory comments about people at the Claremont Colleges.

Feinstein Internship

Senator Feinstein's Los Angeles office is looking for highly motivated college students for internship positions for the winter, spring, and summer sessions. I have included below information on the internship (please feel free to forward and post at your convenience), and former interns' testimonials of their experiences with our office in this packet for your reference. About the internship position:

Tasks and Responsibilities: Interns support our Field Representatives and Staff Assistants in drafting memos to the Senator, scheduling or attending meetings with staff, constituent letters, conducting background research, phone calls, document requests, morning press clippings, research projects, and attending events with the Senator when she is in the area.

Criteria: For many citizens, contact with Senator Feinstein's office is their only experience with an elected representative. Therefore, we need polite and friendly students with some familiarity with the American political system and current events. Additionally, strong writing and editing skills are a plus.*

Hours: Flexible hours (a minimum of 12 hours/wk) during the school year. We are very conducive to working with students' class schedules.

Application Process: Interested students should submit a cover letter, resume, and one page writing sample to Angeline_Macaspac@feinstein.senate.gov.

Thank you for your time and attention to this matter. If you have any questions, please contact me at the above email address or at 310-914-7300. We look forward to hearing from you!
