    Canadian Public Radio has a three part series on line called, It’s a Girls World. http://www.cbc.ca/ideas/episodes/features/2011/01/07/its-a-girls-world/
    It explores how early the art form of bullying starts, how females uses psychological tactics to wound others and how parents can be blind to the impact of school yard bullies.
    While these episodes are about how females structure their techniques and attacks from childhood to the work place, these shows provide an overall view of the insidious nature of bullying and most helpfully what skills and lessons young bullies need to be shown in order to find new ways to get along.
    Children do not always share their pain. These episodes give parents a new ear to listen to the concerns of their children.
    Sadly, lives are at stake.

    Sounds like a number of posters here should take that seminar.

    Now that the truly unbalanced haters don’t have the run of the place over at Topix, I imagine more of them are showing up here. In that case, Heraldo will have to continue to monitor the Herald closely. Way to go, Heraldo!

    Parking at HSU can be quite challenging, especially for newbies, so find out in advance where to buy a day permit, bring plenty of quarters, allow yourself plenty of time to find a parking space, and be prepared (if the parking lots are full) to park in town and walk to the Kate Buchanan Room.

    The parking wasn’t as bad as it used to be. It cost $3.50 for a one-day pass, and finding a space wasn’t difficult at all. I just drove up to the parking kiosk, talked with the helpful person there, and then parked.

    The Kate Buchanan Room was very full. The response of our community to this speaker series “Confronting Bullying, Building Community” was very gratifying. The decision to open the series free to the general public was a shining moment in the history of Humboldt State’s relations with the community it serves. And an appropriate one, considering HSU’s origin as a teacher’s college. The speakers stretched the audience’s comfortable assumptions about bullying as something that can be understood as a problem of individuals, while ignoring structural social constructs that encourage certain groups to be advantaged while others are marginalized. That is one of the things I brought home, just one among many. I will attend the upcoming lectures, too. I sense that there is a new awareness building about how we can protect our youth and so I believe many readers of the Humboldt Herald will want to attend the upcoming lectures.
