Ted Hearne, Philip White to perform as 'R We Who R We' 

Award-winning composer/singer Ted Hearne and electronic musician Philip White will perform their collaborative project "R We Who R We" at 8 p.m. Thursday (March 15) at the Clazel Theatre, 127 N. Main St. in downtown Bowling Green. A $2-$5 donation is suggested.

The duo appears as part of the Music at the Forefront concert series sponsored by the MidAmerican Center for Contemporary Music. R We Who R We takes apart identity in pop music, dissecting songs by Michael Jackson, Ke$ha, Eminem and others and subjecting their lyrics and sound to arbitrary processes, creating new musical structures completely derived from -- but completely unrecognizable as -- their original pop song sources.

Music at the Forefront is an annual concert series featuring performances by accomplished and innovative performers of contemporary music. For more information, contact the center at 2-2685 or email

Conference to examine morality, aspects of manipulation

The next BGSU Workshop in Applied Ethics and Public Policy will address the topic of "Manipulation." The philosophy department is bringing together leading scholars and experts in a variety of disciplines across the U.S. to explore the theoretical and applied issues concerning manipulation.

Influence takes many forms; some are benign, others are clearly objectionable.  For example, one may influence using reasons, evidence, and positive incentives, but not deception, blackmail or violent threats.  Between these poles lies a large and neglected moral grey area--manipulation

The conference will take place from 9 a.m. to 5:45 p.m. March 16 and 17 in 207 Bowen-Thompson Student Union. Sessions are free and the public is encouraged to attend.
