Petition Tag - triple
March 16, 2006
This petition is to get Triple J's scott dooley to make video podcasts.
On March 1, 2006, the Undergraduate Publications Board of Duke University came to a decision to deny status for The Triple Helix as a publication on campus. Their reasons in short were:
1) Our layout is handled at Cornell;
2) We have content overlap with Vertices;
3) We do not have anything unique to contribute to the Duke Community;
4) that articles submitted by students of other schools in the journal will not be subject to review by Duke personnel.
We're sure it has not escaped your attention, that some of the claims made against us are based on weak grounds, if any.
Currently, we are looking to appeal, and to address the concerns raised by UPB in an appropriate manner. Numerous other universities, both across the nation and in the world (new members include Oxford and Cambridge) see value in TTH. The TTH of Duke University is committed to giving a good response to UPB in hopes to have them reconsider.
Please sign our petition to express your disatisfaction with the UPB's decision and to show the board the large support we have for our journal.
Marty Sheargold had his segment of On-Air reading taken over by Fifi Box. This petition is for all Marty Sheargold fans, and fans of his reading of Cloud St to have their say and bring Marty back to the forefront of On-Air reading.
I switched on Triple J the other week to hear Destiny's Child belting out a remix of Bootylicious. The next day i tried again only to hear Beyonce Knowles singing (if u can call it that) work it out. I'm disgusted with Triple J playing such crap when we can easily change stations and hear exactly the same thing. Why would the J's do this to us when they could be playing some decent Aussie music like SUNK LOTO who they haven't even play-listed???? Triple J is aimed at helping Aussie artists, and im spitting that they would rather play this crap.
