Enjoy the Joint Mathematics Meetings from near or afar through our lecture sampler and our feature on Hodge Theory, the subject of a JMM Current Events Bulletin Lecture. This month's Graduate Student Section includes an interview with Arthur Benjamin, "WHAT IS...a Complex Symmetric Operator?" and the latest "Lego Graduate Student" craze. The BackPage announces the October caption contest winner and presents a new caption contest for January. As always, comments are welcome on our webpage. And if you're not already a member of the AMS, I hope you'll consider joining, not just because you will receive each issue of these Notices but because you believe in our goal of supporting and opening up mathematics. —Frank Morgan, Editor-in-Chief
