Learn over lunch! Come view a curated list of online videos on a popular topic. International Programs and Services and Staff Council co-host. 

Lynda.com® lunches occur quasi-monthly on the UMD campus around the noon hour. Each one is a partnership with Staff Council and another unit on campus.

After brief introductions, we'll play a roughly 30–40 minute curated list of online videos on a topic voted on by the campus and community. The last 20 minutes or so is for open discussions. 

The event is free and open to anyone. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own lunch.

G+ General Help  - 
 
I need assistance altering the custom URL that has been offered to a page I manage.

I manage a page for the university I work at. This page was converted from a local maps listing. At some point after I converted the page, the name changed from "University of Minnesota Duluth" to "University of Minnesota at Duluth". I'm not sure how this happened. While it was named improperly, it was offered a custom URL of google.com/+UniversityofMinnesotaatDuluth. I have since renamed the page back.

I won't accept this URL. How can I get google.com/+UniversityofMinnesotaDuluth?

+Joel Youngblom All you can do is not accept the offer that you do not approve of and wait it out.  Some users report that they get a different offer after a period of time.  

It could be that once Google sees that the page name has changed, and that a custom URL has not been accepted, they will make another offer that is consistent with the current name of the page.

This came up while I was searching for an alternative to Appointment Slots. I enjoyed watching it again and it definitely hits harder today than when I first saw it.  Still funny, though!
