The presentation went very well yesterday, and are getting lot positive feedback from employees. have two small feedback items that might helpful for the presentation that you are working with Monica Tennessee. (1) Provide participants copy the slides before the presentation they can take notes (we didnt this); and (2) Clarify the distinction between APHIS and AMS for Dr. think Dr. thought were APHIS. They are separate, but related agencies. can help explain the organizational structure you would like. 
Thanks and regards,

From: Sussman, Michael Sent: Wednesday, June 29, 2011 10:07 To: Subject: Cultural Transformation Dr. B., first generation college grad and think your hypothesis makes sense. had work well into graduate school become excellent student. eventually received degree molecular biology and biochemistry from UCONN. contrast children whose generation much different from mine terms diversity and cultural landscape are both focused life and excellent students early age. Thanks much sharing your presentation with us. Would send your bibliography and book list me? excited learn more about diversity intelligence. did have one point bring about the schedule your seminars. involves religion, hope that you will not offended. The dates overlap with Erev Rosh Hashanah (September 28). Many Jewish people will want spend this evening prayer. Rosh Hashanah (September 28-30, 2011) and Yom Kippur (always ten days after Rosh Hashanah, October 7-8, 2011) are Jewish High Holy days. These are the two days during the year that many Jews feel important take off from work. The purpose these two High Holy Days celebrate the rebirth the world (tikun olam), study the Torah (five books Moses) and repent (teshuvah). Because their occurrence based the Jewish lunar calendar their dates vary each year, but usually they fall sometime September October. think that the reason they are often missed scheduling. hope that this will help you the future.
