Doug Keil and Tyler Korus, 3Ls
Doug Keil and Tyler Korus first met while crowd-surfing at a Creed concert in early 1992. In the Fall of ’93, they played together on the Crenshaw Raiders of the Snoop Youth Football League in Los Angeles. It was during this time that the quarterbacks coach, Nathaniel Dwayne Hale (better known as Nate Dogg), introduced the boys to the beauty of “G-Funk.” As the years went by, Mr. Dogg constantly coached the two boys, both in sport, and in honing their voices to produce harmonious G-Funk melodies funked out with a gangster twist. Now that Mr. Dogg has passed away, and his other protégé, Warren G, is on Celebrity Fit Club, Doug and Tyler cordially invite you to join them on October 27, 2011 for a special, one-time performance of G-Funk on a whole new level, where the rhythm is the bass and the bass is the treble.
TWO CENTURIES OF BLACK LOUISVILLE: A PHOTOGRAPHIC HISTORY
A Panel Discussion and Book Signing with the Authors
Don't miss the first program of this academic year's Diversity Forum Series on Thursday, October 6! It will focus on the new book Two Centuries of Black Louisville written by Dr. Blaine Hudson, Mervin Aubespin, and Ken Clay.

A light lunch from Expressions of You will be available at 11:30 a.m.
This event is free and open to all.
The ABA Journal asked 30 prominent lawyers to name a book that they would recommend to other lawyers. A list of books and the lawyers who selected them is available in "30 Lawyers Pick 30 Books Every Lawyer Should Read" (ABA Journal, August 2011).
The books are currently on display in the law library. Each copy is available for check out. The borrowing period was recently extended to one month, plus two renewals.
The noon hour yoga classes will end this Wednesday, October 5th. Classes will resume after fall break, but at a different time. Beginning on October 13th, classes will meet on Mondays and Thursdays from 5:15 to 6:15. Classes will continue to meet in LL77.
If you've not yet given Law School yoga a try, this might be the perfect opportunity for you to take the plunge. Again, no prior experience is necessary. And in fact, the instructor focuses on something different in every class, so that even those who attend regularly find every session an interesting new challenge. We provide the mats ... all you need is comfortable clothing (a t-short and sweats or shorts). So give it a try ... what do you have to lose (except perhaps a little angst or stress)?
