Undergraduate Research Participants Needed: Personality Perceptions on Social Networking Sites

The purpose of this study is to examine the similarities or differences between self reported personalities and perceived personalities on social networking sites.

As a participant, you will be asked to provide basic demographics and your education background. You will then view screenshots of four MySpace pages and rate each individual’s personality dimensions based on what you see on his or her page.

Approximately 15 to 30 minutes should be allotted to complete this survey.

Please note you must be over the age of 18 to take this survey and some MySpace pages could contain offensive or adult content. Your participation in this study does not involve any physical risk to you; however, it is possible that filling out the questionnaires may be uncomfortable for some individuals. If this happens to you, you may stop at any time.

26th-Feb-2009 03:38 pm - Issues with DigiTel phone service
my love
So, I live just off of 16th & Gambell and I take the bus on 13th & Gambell to school/work.

The minute I hit 15th & Gambell (sometimes even on the southside of 13th & Gambell) I completely lose reception.

I can stand in my parking lot at my apartment and have no reception what so ever.

I've called DigiTel 4 times in the last 3 days and emailed once and am still getting "we will forward this to engineering" as an answer.

My neighbor (in the same complex) is having the same issue and went to DigiTel on Tuesday and complained and they told her they would forward it.

Basically, we have absolutely no phone service at home, which isn't exactly the safest thing.

I'm wondering if anyone else is having these issues on the DigiTel network. I'm almost at the point of begging anyone with DigiTel to drive by 16th/15th & Gambell and see if they too lose reception and report it. The "customer service" agents are basically giving us the run around and it seems nothing is being solved.

Any help or just knowing that we're not the only block with this issue is so welcomed and just needed at this point...

15th-Apr-2008 04:06 pm - Summer Job Oportunity (looking for male actor)
Pirates of Alaska
figured I'd put this on here too just in case someone happens across my journal who's looking to work this summer

just wanted to let people know that Wildride/Ididaride tours is looking for a male actor to be part of their show in Anchorage.

Wildride is run by the Seavey family in conjunction with Mitch Seavey's sled dog tour in Seward.

Last summer was their first year up here in Anchorage doing a one hour live action comedy show with a cast of dogs and mushers.

I am not sure of the details, just that they need a male actor. I work for them only as an audio person and said I'd let people know that they're looking!

Info on the show is here - and I think you can apply for a job on the site.

I also posted this on alaskans, sorry for the cross posting.

Hello Anchorage students! I'm Becky and I'm considering exchanging at UAA for next semester. I'm currently a 2nd year at New College of Florida, which is a tiny public liberal arts school in Sarasota, Florida. I have a lot of questions for y'all.

1. Umm.. what is Alaska like? I grew up in Orlando, Florida and now go to college south of there. The most cold weather I've experienced was one week in November in upstate New York... when I was 11. I didn't own close-toed shoes for 3 years until this year. And I don't own pants. I have no clue what kind of clothing/other stuff (besides pants, clearly) I would need to buy if I spent Fall semester in Anchorage. And I mean, that shit's expensive, right? Where could I buy it used or really cheap? How does one survive Winter? I just don't know shit about Alaska.

2. What is Anchorage like? The college I go to now is in Sarasota, which is a glorified beach-front retirement community. Lots of rich, old, white people and conservative young families. How big is Anchorage, and what type of area is campus in? How's the public transportation? What is there to do? Is it liberal or conservative?

3. How do you feel about academics? I'm used to taking small classes and I haven't had grades since high school. I want to take classes in Art History, gender/diversity studies, Anthropology, and especially the American Sign Language program. What classes are tough or impossible to get in to? How much time to you/students in general spend on schoolwork?

4. Student life: What do you guys do all the time? What types of events does the school program, and what do students put on themselves? What are some of the big clubs on campus? Is there much diversity, or any diversity clubs/groups? Is there a liberal or radical presence on campus?

5. What else do you have to tell me? What has your experience been like at UAA, good or bad? I want to know as much as I can before I make my decision!

Thank you all so much.
