Chabot College Presents Mexican Holiday Tradition With Third Annual "La Posada" Show
A Colorful Latin American Classic for the Entire Family

(Hayward, CA) - Chabot College in Hayward presents the exclusive East Bay performance of La Posada (The Inn) A Christmas Play, featuring music, romance and comedy will run for two weeks in December at the Chabot College Little Theater. The show stars cast members from the Chabot College Theater Arts Department and from throughout Alameda County.
Slated to run Thursdays through Saturdays on December 9, 10, 11 and 16, 17,18 at 7:30 p.m. and during Saturday matinees at 2:00 p.m. on December 11 and 18, the play is a much-loved holiday tradition in Mexico, where the Nativity is highly celebrated beginning nine days prior to Christmas Eve (Noche Buena). December 16th marks a time for each family in a neighborhood to schedule a night to host the Posada at their home, which is identified with a nativity scene outside. The hosts are the innkeepers and the rest of the neighbors are pilgrims carrying lit candles and singing to reenact Mary and Joseph's search for shelter in Bethlehem. Once the pilgrims reach the host home and lodging is found, a piñata is brought out for the children and a festive party is held.
The play features a charming and comic story, filled with familiar characters and live music throughout, weaving north and south of the border in a tangled love story that everyone will enjoy. Prior to the show, the cast will sing holiday songs and Mexican refreshments will be available.
Tickets to La Posada are $5 at the door or $15 for the whole family. For more information, please contact Rachel LePell at (510) 723-6830.

Documentary Producer to Teach at Chabot College

(Hayward, CA) - Film aficionados can now register for the course Film as Art and Communication, taught by documentary producer/director James Culp that will be offered at Chabot College this fall. The course, which offers a wide ranging look at the history and creative development of the motion picture, will be held on Tuesday evenings beginning August 23 and continuing through December 14.
From "The Great Train Robbery" by Edwin S. Porter, America's first narrative or story film, to Martin Scorcese's "Raging Bull" and George Lucas' "Star Wars", the class will examine the many aspects of the film industry, from the evolution of its technology, to the many genres that are available to audiences.
"This class will have great value for both the serious film student and the casual movie fan. The class spans the history of the industry yet focuses on some of the fascinating and little known aspects of cinema," according to Culp, whose film credits include, "People of the Klamath" and "Westward to China".
The course will cover technological advances such as the development of perforated film and lightweight cameras, which will be paralleled by the screening of the films they made possible. Examples of this include the use of close-ups and iris transitions by director of photography Billy Bitzer in D.W. Griffith's "Birth of a Nation" and Greg Toland's use of wide angle lenses and "deep focus" in Orson Wells' legendary classic, "Citizen Kane".
Each week Film as Art and Communication will cover a different angle of the cinema beginning with the Silent Film Era. Buster Keaton's classic comedy, "The General", will be shown accompanied by the innovative score of the Alloy Orchestra. It is a score that includes numerous music sound effects created with washboards, cow bells and just plain junk. The important role of film composers such as Bernard Herman ("Psycho") and Thomas and Randy Newman will also be studied. The class will also look at the advent of sound, which put many actors and directors out of work and posed serious technological and creative challenges to the fledgling industry.
In addition, the class will explore the important role of the documentary in the movie industry and its role as a social commentary. From Flaherty's "Nanook of the North" to Michael Moore's "Fahrenheit 9/11", the class will trace the development of this most influential of film forms.
Film as Art and Communication is listed as Theater 12 on page 133 of Chabot College's fall schedule. For more information and a week-by-week class schedule, please visit the instructor's web pages at http://online.chabotcollege.edu/jculp or email him at jclup@chabotcollege.edu To register, call (510) 723-6700 or go to www.chabotcollege.edu

(Hayward, CA) - The Chabot College Childcare Center will observe the national Week of the Young Child with a slate of events during the week of April 19-23 designed to celebrate early childhood development and to profile the growing need for quality childcare.

On Tuesday, April 20, the center will sponsor a Children's Fair for children enrolled in the program (NOT open to the general public, but media is invited to observe) . Children will participate in various fun activities including water play, face painting, music and more.
On Thursday, April 22, the public is invited to attend a Career and Job Fair hosted by the Chabot College Children's Center sponsored by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).

Chabot College Hosts Third Annual Nursing Career Day on Monday, April 26
Representatives from Regional Hospitals Will Discuss Local Hiring Needs and Procedures

(Hayward, CA) - Chabot College is hosting its Third Annual Nursing Career Day on Monday, April 26, 2004.
Approximately 16 Human Resources representatives from Bay Area hospitals have been invited to speak with Chabot College first and second year nursing students regarding their respective facilities and hiring processes.
In an uncertain economy, the current nursing shortage can provide students with more job security than is offered in many other employment sectors. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, by the year 2020, the United States is expected to fall short by 800,000 nurses required to care for the aging population. The crunch is especially critical here in California, where new laws were implemented this year to reduce the nurse-to-patient ratio. California hospitals now require one nurse on duty for every six patients in medical-surgical wards; one nurse for every four patients in emergency rooms; and one nurse to two patients in labor and delivery wards. Other minimum staffing rules apply to other hospital wards, but nurses may not care for more than eight patients at a time.
To meet this demand, hospitals are getting creative in their hiring styles, offering cash bonuses, flexible on-line scheduling and other incentives aimed at drawing, and keeping, nurses on staff.

The program is open to students seeking to gain credit through academic courses provided through the trip, as well as to the general community seeking the adventure of an intensive and well planned travel experience.
Led by Chabot College faculty member and author Don Skiles, the trip features exploration and study of London, Canterbury, Kent, Cambridge and Ely, Stratford-Upon-Avon, York, Salisbury, Stonehenge and Avebury, as well as one week of touring in Normandy, France. There, the group will visit the World War II Memorial site above the D-Day landing beaches during the 60th anniversary year of the invasion.
Participants will attend plays at the Royal Shakespeare Theater in Stratford-Upon-Avon and visit other Shakespeare sites, see the original Magna Carta in Salisbury and the Battle of Hastings sites, and see many of the premier marvels of medieval architecture in England and France.
"Most summer study abroad programs are four weeks in length. This program is distinct in the amount of depth and understanding it provides participants through an intensive eight week tour," notes Skiles, who participated in the study tours of 1992 and 1998. "For participants, the opportunity to reside with a British family in the greater London area from the day of arrival is invaluable in terms of really getting to know the British culture," he adds.
