was actually arrested in New Jersey
for a condom demonstration,
Huston suggested that in order to
find an appropriate form of
protection, an individual must be
comfortable with their own sexuality.
"You need to feel comfortable
with whatever turns ou on, and if
you are ashamed you need to work
through that. When I was 14,1 was
raped by six men, beaten up and
thrown in a ditch. It was a very
public event. No one leashed out for
me because I was drinking and had
passed out. Replaying the rape scene
got me off. I was really ashamed, but
it was my way of coping Huston
Since humans are already sexual
people by nature, loving our bodies is
only the first step to become the
sexual beings we already are. So, we
need to be sexy with condoms,
dental dams, and toys.
"Stop looking at condoms and
saying 'I hate them, I hate them, I
hate them Look at them as erotic
and fun said Huston.
Huston also said abstinence does
not necesariry have to mean celibacy.
"Abstinence is not celibacy.
Abstinence is not the absence of all
sexuality, abstinence of sexual
activity, abstinence of intercourse,
abstinence of unsafe activity, ' love
that, Huston said. "Mright, well, I am

Let's rock Huston said.
It has been 12 years since Huston
developed HIV and now she has
AIDS. She thought her sex life was
over, but now she has a partner vvho
is HIV negative.
"If you find abstinence from a
spiritual place it is a wonderful thing.
I told myself that I was worth
something better, and I was going to
hold out, Huston said. "If you find
abstinence in fear and guilt you are
hurting yourself Huston said.
Huston is hoping most of her
words will not fall on deaf ears J.

Wfe at The East Carolinian realize that tobacco pays many bills in this area, but tobacco can
kill; in fact it does on a dairy basis. Many smokers die each year from a smoking-related illness.
On Thursday, we encourage smokers to take part in the annual Great Smokeout. The
American Cancer Society organized the annual event in 1977 when smokers were encouraged
to quit for one day to prove they could do it.
More Americans try to quit on this day every year than on any other day of the year. And, after
all, it is only one day. It's just 24 hours.
� Just to help the smokers out there prepare, here are some tips from the American Cancer
Society. Ask yourself three questions: How much do I smoke? Why do I smoke? What will be
my most difficult hurdle in quitting? After asking yourself these three questions, ask yourself
which you want most: to smoke or to stop.
After a little soul-searching, choose a method of quitting. Cold turkey is most successful, so
Thursday would be a good target day. If you can't go cold turkey, start the effort.
One way to make sure you go cold turkey is to get rid of the cigarettes. Give your cigarettes
to your roommate, your significant other or a friend. Tell everyone you're quitting for the day
id not to give you a smoke no matter how much you beg for one. Find something else to do
during your smoke break; buy a drink or a snack. Getting rid of the cigarettes is more of a
challenge because if you get rid of the matches or the lighter; the temptation of the cigarettes
still there; you can always find matches or a lighter.
If you decide to reduce rather than quit for a day, make getting a cigarette a challenge; smoke
with your left hand if you're right handed, put a rubber band around the pack, change to a brand
you don't like for a day. Don't buy a case; buy one pack and then don't buy anymore.
We at TEC are simply saying smoking is bad, not tobacco. We encourage you to take the
challenge; quit for a day. Don't be a wimp; you can do it, smokers. It's only for a day, you can go
back to it Friday� if you want to.
Diplomacy best when dealing with Iraq
If military force is necessary,
the United States should act
swiftly and strongly but should
only do so with the
acknowledgment of the UN
For the time being, it seems
diplomacy may be the most
effective means to resolving the
situation in Iraq.
Just how much is too much?
Saddam Hussein has once again
defied the United Nations council
in his forcing out of U.S. inspection
officials. He has successfully upset
the UN by dividing the United
States from the other members of
Many experts say it was a smart
move by Saddam because it
effectively whipsaws the United
States between Iraq's provocation
and a UN council that many feel
would not back the United States in
using military force to reestablish
dominance in the Gulf. Other
members of the UN council say the
United States is blowing Saddam's
behavior way out of proportion.
It seems that even neighboring
countries have decided that
Hussein is not so much a threat, as
they did six years ago. Saudi Arabia
and Jordan have been less than
helpful in coordinating diplomacy to
deal with Iraq. Even the French and
Russians seem lethargic with the
U.S. inspectors being forced out of
It is as though the UN council
has decided it is not a UN problem
so much as a US problem. And for
time being, it seems the United
States is on their own. The only
problem b that it is a UN problem
as well as a U.S. problem.
The word from the White House
is that Saddam's behavior is
"unacceptable which was a vague
way of denouncing Hussein's failure
to comply. It is apparent to many
that US was caught with their pants
down and certainly Baghdad is
reveling in their perturbation of the
It is important that President
Clinton draw a clear line in
coordinating a coalition with the
UN council. The White House
must focus their attention on the
keeping the UN together when
dealing with Iraq or any non-UN
What has happened is that Iraq
has divided the united States and
the UN like a bratty child between
two irresolute parents.
If military force is necessary, the
United States should act swiftly and
strongly but should only do so with
the acknowledgment of the UN.
Because if the United States does
resort to weaponry, and does it on
their own, this will only divide the
UN council further.
For the time being, it seems
diplomacy may be the most
effective means to resolving the
situation in Iraq. However, if Iraq
fires on U.S. spy planes (as they
have threatened to do) or if they
dispel other UN inspectors, which
seems imminent, the United States
must work with the UN in using

Columnist Day has much to learn

Milk: it really does a body bad
Next time you go to throw
back a nice cold glass of milk,
Just think about how much
pus is contained in the glass.
Or maybe you should consider
exactly what these hormones
are doing to you or your
Wipe that milk mustache off your
face. Do you know what is in your
heavily promoted beverage?
rBGH is a genetically engineered
growth hormone for cattle that dairy
farmers use to increase milk
production. If you listen to the Food
and Drug Administration, as a lot of
people do, you will hear the usual
rhetoric that recombinant bovine
growth hormonc(rBGH), "is the
same as naturally occurring bovine
growth hormone (BGH) Some
scientists feel that rBGH can
stimulate an allergic reaction in a
portion of the populace. The FDA
says this possibility is insignificant
arid has, so far, refused to conduct
tests into the allergic reaction idea.
So a small scale experiment with
the usual control and experimental
groups is not being done. Perhaps
the FDA feels that the current
nationwide experiment on
unwitting participants, us, the
American public, is study enough.
Other scientific research has
found that the BGH use increases
the levels of Insulin-like Growth
Factor 1 (IGF-1). IGF-i is
naturally-occuring growth factor
that occurs in both humans and
cows. The problem lies in the what
IGF-1 can do. The hormone is a
cancer accelerator and is associated
with both breast cancer and tumors.
As Dr. Samuel Epstein of the
University of Illinois says, "We think
it rBGH plays a significant role in
The research that rBGH plays a
role in breast cancer should be of
concern to all. The milk industry is
heavily promoting milk, which they
claim is good for women to help
prevent osteoporosis� even though
milk is not good for women or
anyone beyond a young age to drink,
but that is another column.
Of course the FDA has no
conflict of interest in concerns to
rBGH, which is produced by the
company Monsanto. It is purely by
coincidence that Mike Taylor is a
chief deputy to David Kessler head
of the FDA Taylor was once,
employed as chief outside counsel
for Monsanto. The coincidences
seem to be coming out of the
woodwork. Taylor is also cousin to
Tipper "The Musk Labeler" Gore,
wife of Vice President Al "III take
money from anybody" Gore.
Monsanto's own data, or at least
the data they release, shows that
cows treated with rBGH have a, "79
percent increase in mastitis (udder
infections) and a resulting 19
percent increase in somatic cells
(pus in milk)
A warning label is included with
Posilac, the brand name for rBGH.
The label states, "use of Posilac has
been associated with increases in
somatic cell counts pusStudies
indicated that cows injected with
Posilac had increased numbers of
enlarged hocks and lesions (e.g.
laceration, enlargements, calluses)
of the knee
That might not be a milk
mustache; it could be a nice pus
mustache. Got pus?
The four companies that stand to
make money from the rBGH are
Monsanto, Eli Liliy, Upjohn and
American Cyanamid. Monsanto, Eli
Lilly and Upjohn are all convicted
corporate felons. Some of the
charges levied against the three
include, but are not limited to,
"deadly toxic gas cloud releases,
consumer pharmaceutical products
that kill people and produce birth
defects, and failure to inform
Federal officials of testing results,
indicating fatalities connected to
And I am supposed to trust
Monsanto when they tell me rBGH
is safe. Fool me once, shame on you;
fool me twice, shame on me.
Next time you go to throw back a
nice cold glass of milk, just think
about how much pus is contained in
the glass. Or maybe you should
consider exactly what these
hormones are doing to you or your
children. Now, I am not for the
outlawing of the rBGH, but I am for
labeling of any produce, milk,
cheese, etc. that contains rBGH. If
the company labels the chemical
mixture that cows are injected with,
why is the final product not labeled?
And, of course, you all know the
answer by now. (Well, if you have
read any of my previous articles.)
The answer is money. Given the
choice, people will not buy milk that
has been altered through hormones.
Given the correct information,
people also want the milk labeled,
as they should.

Pink Floyd fens fidget when they
hear the words psychedelic,
"stratospheric and sonic This
fidgeting may commence if they
stumble upon this fella who calls
himself Zoomer. He has been
labeled as one of those "sonic art
freaks" who creates music that pays
homage to T-Rex, Brian Eno, and
the Jesus and Mary Chain. All of the
above terms were used to describe
Zoomer with the release of his
Pinch Hit Records debut album,
the creation of which was funded by
his girlfriend's Visa card. Hence, the
name, Maximum Plastic.
After giving the disc a whirl,
fidgeting may give way to
disappointment, possibly even
disgust. The "psychedelia" is quite
different from what many folks may
be used to. Zoomer comes off as
this crazy 70s pimp guy who looked

Kravitz and Syd Barrett. He was
born in the swamp country of
Louisiana and it was thought that
he was using drugs as early as the
fourth grade. He does admit that he
didn't begin to use drugs until after
high school and his music clearly
reflects that fact. Zoomer's
personality is heavily reflected in
his music. His counselor once

Do miracles really happen? For people of faith all over the world, the idea
of miraculous healing of diseases is a central pan of their beliefs. The art
of medicine is nearly as old as belief in the supernatural, and as mankind
learns more about the mysteries of the human body, the achievements
of medicine increase in scope and ability. Both theologians and doctors
often wonder at the questions of miracles and healing.
Andy Farkas, who is neither theologian nor doctor, but a student here
at ECU, has spent the past year and a half asking these questions.
!hrkas, an art major concentrating in printmaking, is preparing to
graduate, and as a pan of his course requirements, is assembling a senior
� vhibicion of his work. This work is a Japanese accordion-style folio of
prints based on sketches Farkas drew of people and situations at Pitt
Titled Saints in a House of Healing, the work focuses on patients in
certain situations accompanied by the patron saints of those situations.
Ivach "story" in the book features a copper etching of a situation and a
poem-letter addressed from the saint to the patient. Farkas has
constructed thirteen books, an artist's proof and then twelve others for
rhc twelve disciples of Christ.
Farkas is excited about his project, especially since his original idea
was not quite so involved. "I originally just wanted to do a scries of
prints of surgeries he said.
At first, he met with obstacles even getting into the operating room.
! Ic began by contacting the hospital's medical illustrator, who got him
into the cadaver lab, where he spent a while sketching cadavers. After a
few months of this, he was put in touch with Dr. Walter Pories, former
head of surgery at the hospital and currently a professor of surgery and
He began to accompany Pories on his rounds. "Dt Pories dressed me
up in a lab coat so I wouldn't make the patients feel skittish Farkas had
to obtain permission from any of the patients he wanted to draw. But he
liked going on rounds. "That was probably my favorite pan, going on
rounds with the doctors, visiting patients, even more so than the
But h: did get into the operating room. It was during all this that he
realized he wanted to do more than make a few pictures. He struck on
rhe idea of making a book. "I didn't know if I wanted to tell a story or
just have a book of illustrations. I was talking to Dr. Ehlbeck (Farkas's
printmaking professor) and he suggested that a print I'd made reminded
liim of St. Anthony
From there the idea grew. Farkas went to the library and read
ountlcss reference books about saints and the lives of the saints. He
licgan to see connections between the saints and certain situations he'd
encountered at the hospital. He came up with the idea of writing letters
from each saint to each patient, and Smuts in a House of Healing was bom.
When he talks about his book, Farkas's eyes light up with inspiration.
The experience at the hospital has filled him with stories. Fbr each print
and letter, Farkas has his own emotional experience. If you let him, he'll
tell you the story of each one, of the person behind the face in the
engraving. One of the most personal prints is the one for St. Dymphna,
the patron saint of mental illness, which features a print of Farkas's
grandfather while in the midst of battling Alzheimer's disease.
Now, as he is putting the final touches on the original thirteen books,
he is also talking to an editor and a publisher about the possibility of
producing the book in a less expensive format so that more people can
enjoy it. An art gallery in Raleigh is already interested in the possibility
of displaying the book.
Though he's excited about the future, right now he's still a student,
and his time is filled with preparations for graduation and for his senior
exhibition which will be held at the Brody Medical Building, and is open
ro the public. He is awed by the opportunities he's been given and the
strange and iaspirational things he's learned from all of this, When you
look at that light in his eyes, you can tell that, whomever the saints are,
Andy Farkss believes in miracles.

Starship Troopers is more redundant than revisionai
8 OUT OF 10
Paul Verhovcn's latest jab at the sci-
fi genre, Starship Troopers, is being
hailed by many critics as an
ingenious, biting satire that
disguises itself as an ultra-violent
futuristic action flick where Earth
goes to war with a planet of giant
bugs. As a rookie film critic, I
acknowledge Verhoven as a
satiristand lean see the social pokes
his latest film dishes out. I also
acknowledge that his film is meant
to be more fun than serious. Still,
despite all the greatness it does
exhibit, Starship Troopers ultimately
feels a bit empty.
Basing their story on Robert A.
Heinlein s classic novel of the same
name, Verhoven and scriptwriter Ed
Neumeier toy around with and, in a
sly way, make fun of the patriotic
war films that dominated American
theaters in the '40s and '50s. Set in
the distant future, the plot follows a
group of young, idealistic high
school students who follow their
dreams and hearts and join an elite
military organization known as the
Federation. While most of this teen
gang enthusiastically throw
themselves to the Federation,
Johnny, our lead hero played by
Casper Van Dien, does so for the
wrong reasons. He goes against his
parents wishes to pursue another
career and joins the Federation

too low for anything else) hoping to

and abilities have allowed her to be

A staple of anti-
war films is to
depict an optimistic
and ideal world (usually small-town
America) that is shattered once the
reality and violence of war sets in.
This is exactly the formula such
protest films as Bo-n on tfo Fourth of
July used. Despite Verhoven's
insistence that Starship Troopers
does not take an anti-war stance, it's
grisly depiction of war (this is,
without a doubt, one of the most
violent films I have ever seen) and
its satiric take on patriotism sure
seem to be making some kind of

long time. The satire is evident, and
the film does touch upon some
larger issues, such as unnecessary
military aggression and" sexual
equality within the military Starship
Troopers is a film unlike any other.
But then again, it isn't.
One of the main problems with
Verhoven's extravaganza is; that, not
only is it a bit too excessive at
points, but it also feels redundant.
Verhoven seems to be borrowing
from so many sources, including
himself, that it's hard to escape the
feeling of "been there, done that
despite the groundbreaking special
effects and record body count.
In this day and age of cinema,
one could argue that most, if not all,
films are simply older stories being
rehashed with bigger budgets, and
that is true for the most part. But
the ones that stand out are those
that take a genre to another level,
those that somehow add more
substance to older ideas. Starship
Troopers is a good film, but it
ultimately doesn't offer anything
If you want satire, rent Terry
Gilliam's Brazil; if you want anti-war
films, watch Oliver Stone's Platoon
or Stanley Kubrick's Paths of Glory; if
you want science fiction action
complete with space marines and
alien bugs, James Cameron's ABens
is the better choice; if you want a
better Verhoven flick with a more
focused satiric edge, Roboeop is! still
Leaving Starship Troopers, I felt
like I usually do leaving the state
fair. You know the feeling � ywi're
bloated with an excess of junk' food
like mustard-dipped corn dogs,
caramel-glazed apples and sugar-
coated dough. You may have Had
fun, but you're not exactly
nourished. Fbr a more substantial
meal, check out some of the films
mentioned above. However, if you
just want to indulge in one of the
most intense pieces of brain candy
ever created, then Starship Troopers
will definitely fill you up.

little tricks that he does in this track
such as during the line "she's going

respectively. As the disc spins merrily
forward, there is a greater emphasis
on the keyboards and saxophone
playing done by Jon Lovcdog (if that
is not the epitome of a 70's pimp-
name, then let us all be damned).
Most of the "psychedelia" lies within
the maneuvers of the keyboard,
adding trippy sound effects that are
intended to propel the mind into
various parts of the universe.
There is also certainly a Beck
influence. Our pal Zoomer is not as
talented as Beck, but if Beck had his
own little category of crazy trip-hop,
retro-pop rock music, then Zoomer
would be in the same bin. Zoomer
thinks on the same level as Beck
when he wants to get the most out of
his music and make it unusually
interesting to the ear as well. Also,
Zoomer is one with Beck when it
comes to the odd choice of lyrics that
accompany the obscure music.
Zoomer parallels this oddity with
such deranged lyrics as: "and the

The general feel of this album is
like a 70's-style apartment. There arc-
about 50 people too many in the
apartment and a big disco ball in the
center of the room hanging from the
ceiling. All of the people look like
characters from Welamie Btirk Kotter

album. With the trippy keyboard
sounds and the sorta-Rolling Stones-
esque guitar riffing accompanied by
the saxophone, a very retro style-
album is born. A touch of Pink Floyd
is revealed at the close of the album

The East Carolinian
It's the match up fans have waited for all
season � the Pirates versus the
ECU has been on a roll lately, winning
their last four games. ECU beat
Cincinnati 14-7 on ESPN last week,
breaking their 0-3 Thursday night
streak. With a win this week over N.C.
State, ECU 5-5, 4-2) could complete
their fourth straight winning season. The
Wolfpack (5-5,3-5) is coming off a 31-24
victory over Virginia on Saturday.
Last year, the Pirates handed State
their heads on a platter, with a 50-29
romping in Chadotte at Ericsson
Stadium. Running back Scott Hariey
sent' the Wolfpack home with their tails
between their legs when he set an
NCAA record for most rushing yards
(351) by a sophomore but you can take
last year's game and throw it out the
window. The players play down the
rivalry and just see it as another game,
but for the seniors, it would mean a lot to
end this season a winning note.

that 1 think it would be foolish of me to

do that; Florida State didn't do that.
Logan's concentration will be trying
to contain the Wolfpack on offense while
jump starting ECU s own offense.
"What we've got to do is control the
damage Logan said. "In the mean time

THE EHER4LE CITTS BEST
The East Carolinian is full of new surprises. And one of
the new surprises is the Readers' Choice Tab. This is the
first time the East Carolinian has done this. The Readers'
Choice gives you, the students, a voice to give your opin-
ion about your favorite places to eat, shop for a keg, best
place to park, and many more.
Over these past couple of weeks, The East
Carolinian has had a tremendous response to the surveys
that were sent out in the newspaper and the internet and
that were passed out. As an incentive for the students to
fill them out, we told them we would put all the names in
a barrel, and we would choose one name. The winner of
the Casio TV was Laurie A. Rouse.
Not only was a TV up for grabs, so were winner s
certificates in each category � from the best place to get
a late-night breakfast to the best place to five off campus
� voted on by the readers of The East Carolinian. The
company or place with the most votes were presented the
certificate, donated by The East Carolinian.
So please do not delay look inside the Readers'
Choice tabloid. See if your favorite place was chosen.
Who knows? Maybe you'll discover a new favorite place
of your own!
Thank you to all who voted and congratulations to
all the winners of The East Carolinian's first Readers'
to our winner of the Casio handheld color T.V.
