Be the Dot. Be the Difference

We at Auburn University are working together to stop sexual violence on our campus. The WE.auburn initiative is part of a nationwide program called the Green Dot Bystander Intervention Program. The Green Dot focuses on the actions of the bystander, the third party in any circumstance. By mobilizing the bystander to take action and intervene in a potentially dangerous or harmful situation, it is possible to change and even prevent the outcome of a violent situation. We call these instances “green dots.” WE are changing the culture at Auburn University, one green dot at a time.

The cancers that most often affect women are breast, colon, endometrial, lung, cervical, skin, and ovarian cancers. Knowing about these cancers and what you can do to prevent them or find them early (when they are small and easier to treat) may help save your life.

Alabama Extension and WSFA-TV Partner in Emergency Handbook

AUBURN, Alabama—Every Alabama family needs to prepare for severe weather. In a single year, the gamut of extreme weather may range from tornadoes in the spring to violent thunderstorms and flash flooding in the summer to fall hurricanes and ice storms in the winter.

The Alabama Cooperative Extension System has a new iBook to help families, businesses and communities prepare for storms and clean up after they pass. The Emergency Handbook is a comprehensive resource for emergency planning, preparation and storm recovery. It is available as a free download from iBooks and online at www.aces.edu/emergency.
