|8:00 am-9:00 pm||Women's Choir Festival KIMBALL RECITAL HALL|
Women enrolled in Nebraska high school choral programs are invited to participate in the Nebraska Women’s Choral Festival to be held Tuesday, April 9th, here on the UNL City Campus. This will be a wonderful opportunity for the women of Nebraska choral organizations to gather to celebrate the beauty of treble voices and the wonderful literature available for women’s voices. The Women's Choir Festival will bring together young women's choirs from around the area for a daylong workshop to enhance their skills with UNL choir faculty. The Festival will be on Tuesday, Apr 9, all day, in Kimball Recital Hall. The Festival will conclude with a concert at 7:00 pm in Kimball Recital Hall and feature the participants from the workshop.

|12:00 pm-6:00 pm||Free Tax Preparation Assistance for International Students and Scholars City Campus Union|
Any non-US resident is eligible to receive free tax preparation at the UNL City Campus Union on Tuesday afternoons between February 26 and April 9. IRS-certified volunteers will prepare federal tax returns at the UNL VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) Site. (Please note, there are services available at UNL for US residents—however, this particular site is only equipped to assist non-US residents with their federal tax returns.)
There is no advance sign-up necessary; simply walk-in during the open hours with your necessary documents:
• Immigration documents including:
o I-20 for those in F-1 status
o DS-2019 for those in J-1 status
• All tax documents (such as W-2 forms)
• Your federal and state returns from last year, if you filed (this is helpful but not required)
• A blank check (This is a free service—your check is simply used as proof of bank account routing numbers and account numbers for direct deposit of refund, which will be processed far more quickly than a refund by mail. Again, this is helpful, but not required.)
The site will be open on the following dates and times:
February 26, March 5, and March 12, 2013; 12:00 noon – 6:00 pm: Georgian Suite, City Union
March 19, 2013; 12:00 noon – 5:00 pm: Colonial Room, City Union
March 26, April 2, and April 9, 2013; 12:00 noon – 6:00pm: Colonial Room, City Union
Sorry, but we cannot provide tax assistance outside of the hours listed above. If you are unable to attend this site, you can call the IRS at 1-800-906-9887 to find another VITA site in the area (specify that you are a non-resident). We have tried to provide enough open hours to allow for people to receive assistance over their lunch hour or after work.
Following preparation of the federal return at the City Union, students and scholars will be directed to the Nebraska Department of Revenue just a few blocks away to prepare their state return. This can, but does not have to, be completed on the same day as the federal return.
All international students who were physically present in the US in 2012 need to complete Form 8843 (a simple form) whether or not they earned income. Nonresident tax payers are not allowed to file US taxes electronically. Nonresidents must complete and mail paper forms.
Questions regarding the VITA site can be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org or 402-472-4646 (this phone number will connect you to the New Student Enrollment desk—this is the correct contact department for the non-US resident VITA coordinator).

|4:00 pm-5:00 pm||Alexander van der Bliek -- Biochemistry and Redox Biology Center Seminar BEADLE CENTER|
Dr. Alexander van der Bliek, Professor, Department of Biological Chemistry, UCLA, will present the seminar "Mitochondrial Fission, Fusion and Stress" on Tues., April 9, 2013 in N172 Beadle Center.
The van der Bliek lab studies the roles of mitochondrial fission and fusion proteins in cellular response to stress. The lab is specifically focused on the control of the mitochondrial inner membrane fusion protein OPA1 through proteolysis and it is focused on the interplay between different fission proteins during the final stages of the fission process. In recent years, these processes have been connected with neurodegenerative diseases, such as Parkinson’s, and they were shown to be important for normal cell survival and for cell death through apoptosis.
