User Friendly/Visually Appealing/ Simply better ways of showcasing news/upcoming events

Hi everyone,

I am working on a clinical research site "Engage"
(www.umengage.org) which works at matching volunteers interested in
clinical research to research studies at the University of Michigan.

If you look at the home page, you can see that we have a section on
News and upcoming Events which is basically a list ( 2 items)of the
latest news and upcoming events.

Re: [IxDA] Axure... Thoughts?

In a similar thread, a new Mac OS X native application called Antetype just started beta testing. From their site[1]:

"ANTETYPE is a brand new, ground-breaking design application that supports user interface designers at every step of their work. Design beautiful interfaces, invent new widgets, style them and put it all together in an interactive prototype!"

I haven't had much time to kick the tires yet, so I'll hold my thoughts for now.

Where would you rather be? (was Contract Rates)

We pay $75/hr for a usability engineer quasi interaction designer in Philly.
I do the actual graphic/web design work (putting everything together,
providing living prototypes for him to test). Of course, we're a
non-technical industry (healthcare) and have other UCD folks on staff, but
he tells me we're in his low range.

Please smack me if this type of discussion is off-limits here...

On a similar note, I'm pondering a move, and wondering whether freelancing,
finding a design agency, or a full-time position is better.

Placement of Calendar Widget

I'm sure most of us have seen these: the little buttons or icons that
when clicked, pop up a calendar to assist people with entering dates
in a text field. In most instances, the widget is placed to the right
of the text field. During a usability testing session I conducted
last week, a participant noted that he always thought it was odd that
the calendar was placed at the end of the line.

Over the past 9-months, I've been assisting the National Museum of Hip-Hop

settled on a name, National Hip-Hop Museum, they went with NHHM.org.
