Correction: If you saw Sunday's meeting mentioned in the Global Affairs weekly newsletter then you probably noticed that the meeting is scheduled at 4 and will be four hours long. This is incorrect. The meeting starts at 4:30 and will probably be an hour or so. 4 - 8pm is the period in which we reserved the room.
