Pepsi vending machines campus-
wide are being converted from 12-
ounce can machines to 20-ounce bottle
Along with the change in products,
prices have increased from 55 cents for
a 12-ounce can to 90 cents for a 20-
According to amendment seven of
the exclusive beverage rights agree-
ment, the price of cans in the vending
machines is not to exceed 55 cents in
the first three years of the university's
contract with Pepsi without expressed
consent of the university.
However, because Pepsi's profits
have not been as high as expected,
ECU agreed to allow the change to bot-
tles at a higher cost to the consumers.
"1 want the consumer to get what
they want, but at the same time I don't
want to lose that commitment we've
got from Pepsi said Layton Getsinger,
associate vice chancellor for
Administration and Finance and
executive director of Business Services.
"We were able to put in 20-ounce
machines rather than 12-ounce
machines. You get a higher margin of
profit on those and a higher rate of
commission on those. It's a win-win for
Getsinger has overseen the Pepsi
project since its inception and was faced
with the decision of whether or not to
switch from cans to bottles.
ECU finalized their exclusive bever-
age rights agreement with Pepsi on
Aug. 1, 1998 settling on a ten-year con-
tract that gave the university $3 million
as a signing bonus. ECU had a profit of
$148,000 a year when Coke and Pepsi
were offered campus-wide before the
agreement with Pepsi was reached.
However, Pepsi guaranteed ECU a
profit of $163,000 after the first year
that they had exclusive rights.
With the one year anniversary of the
deal approaching, Pepsi had not
received the return they had expected
and therefore could not guarantee the

According to Pepsi's pricing and con-
ditioning terms with the university, "It
is Pepsi-Cola's evaluation that ECU's
campus is severely underdeveloped.
Soft drinks are an impulse item and cur-
rent visible locations are few. It is our
belief that with increased visibility and
availability that both ECU and Pepsi-
Cola will achieve their goals
Pepsi believes that if there are more
soft drink machines on campus, people
will spend more money on soft drinks.
The university was not able to put in
as many machines as Pepsi had planned
on having on the campus because of
various reasons. At the time of the
agreement, the university had 142
machines on campus and Pepsi wanted
to have a total of 180 by the end of the
"We still don't have 180 machines
and we're about a week away from the
end of year one Getsinger said. "We
couldn't get the cooperation we need
from all of the entities that housed
"I think that we've gained that sup-
port from the residence halls, the school
of medicine and some administration
and classroom buildings. Also, there
were not places to plug the machines in.

ously payed for a
scKia, the university
nnd Pepsi will begin
to turn students
,iiw�y from buyini
soft drinks on cam-
pus all 1ye1:h�r.
The university has decided to change campus vending machines from 12-ounce can
machines to 20-ounce bottle machines without getting the opinion of the students
they are catering to.
While it is understandable that all 17,(100 students could not be consulted on the mat-
ter, some input from the student population would have been beneficial. This all
reminds us of when the university took the liberty to sign an exclusive deal with
Pepsi almost a year ago which severely limited students' choices for soft drinks on
campus. The SGA President. Eric Rivenbark. was the sole no' vote during the Board
of Trustees meeting, and the BOT quickly passed the motion. We were stuck with
a Pepsi campus.
It seems Pepsi did not meet its expected profit margin over the first year, so they t.xik
the stance that they would simply charge more for a soda. While that may meet their
needs financially, it does not meet some students' financial needs. By almost dou-
bling the price that students previously payed for a soda, the university and Pepsi will
begin to turn students away from buying soft drinks on campus all together.
If students simply stop buying Pepsi products out of the vending machines on cam-
pus, will the university and Pepsi decide to use 32-ounce bottles and raise the price
to $1.75? When is enough enough?
The university seemed to function without the million dollar bank roll of Pepsi
before the deal was completed, so it would be fair to say they could have kept doing
so without Pepsi. The administration says that the money made from the 20-ounce
bottles is pumped back into the university Who decides what that money will be
used for? This is another instance of the student population being left out of deci-
sions that they are paying for. When we can't even choose between a can or a bottled
soft drink, something needs to change.
Prisoners in the war against Marijuana
It's about use, not abuse,
education and the right to make
your own derisions.
Under the administration of the first
Presklent to ever admit to smoking mar-
ijuana, I find it interesting diat the num-
. berof arrests per year for possession have
more than doubled Time after time, sci-
entific and medical studies have shown
diat marijuana is rex a killer weed, yet
this information has Ixx-n repressed. Not
once lias a major US newspaper printed
the results of any snidies ot findings.
In November of 19, 'Hie I-ancct,
; Great Britain's leading medical journal,
; published an analysis of the harmful
:i effects of marijuana, They uindiisivcly
slKAved diat marijuana is less of a liealth

also noted diat the active ingrexlient in pot,
'Icmdiyditxiirinabireil or TUC, is less
addictive dun alcoliol or nianne, instead,
it is classified closer to caffeine.
Yes, smoking pot extensively for
numerous years increases your risk of
lung cancer and may cause you to devel-
op bronchitis or mild asthma. Pregnant
women should not smoke it nor should

Marijuana does not make you stupid
when used moderately. Repeatedly,
snidies from major American and inter-
national universities have shown diat
moderate smokers do not do any type of
permanent damage to their brains or
lungs. However, chronic use, such as
everyday for many years, lias been
linked to short-term memory loss and
lung problems. In most of the snidies,
any negative side effects In m l ng temi

Anyone who chooses to smoke mari-

As a smdent adilete, I find it very dis-
quieting that I could lose my loans and
be ejected from my team for smoking a
joint rolled from the dried flowers of a
plant which grows in nature. Vet, every-
day I have to walk around watching my

The female fashion perspective
ask you ladies, how many
women out there dress for the
sole purpose of impressing men?
I have read this week's opinion by my
esteemed colleague Chris. After hav-
ing done so, I feel compelled to offer
my own take on the subject.
I ask you ladies, how many
women out there dress for the sole
purpose of impressing men? I don't
know about you, but I dress to please
myself, and tme, perhaps even for
the benefit of other females � but
not because I intend to claw my way
into some guy's affections by show-
ing a little ass. More likely, liecause a
gal will show far more appreciation
for my chic sense of style and my
great eye for color�a factor in appar-
el selection Chris obviously over-
looked whilst suggesting that all
members of the female gender doll
up in peach, white or tan to show off
the outline of our drawers. Panty
lines indeed. Men insist on display-
ing their boxers to the world by the
generous fit of sagging pants.
However, somehow I don't think
that a glimpse at someone's Fniit of
the Ixxims is as exciting of an event
for the women of the world.
Platforms and high-heeled shoes
are not as difficult to walk in as some
men perceive, it is just their inept
sense of balance that would send
them tumbling down the stairs of they
attempted to don a pair of stilettos. In
the '60's and '70s, both men and
women wore platforms. The only rea-
son why they did not come back in
style for me is because of the price. I
suppose it's fine that the masculine
gender has an addiction to paying over
$100 for a pair of athletic shoes.
Sure, there are plenty of inconve-
nient and cumbersome items of
clothing that fashion designers have
created for women, but we do not all
wear them. And if we did, I was not
aware that wardrobe selections
reflected the ineptitude of an entire
group of humanity, or discredited a
social movement that did much for
equality for numerous other groups.
I lair is beautiful any color that it
comes in, no matter if Revlon con-
tributed to its glory. If a woman has
well-trimmed hair, in a hue that pleas-
es her, it's just fine with me. Long
hair, despite its mysterious aphrodisi-
ac-al qualities for guys, is cumbersome
and hot, and I'm sure that any male
who has attempted to deal with it
understands and promptly cut it.
Women have made bounds for-
ward in overcoming sexist opinions,
but it is statements that are shallow
and based on little or no actual evi-
dence that is a slap in the face to any
woman. IX) not judge a woman by
the cut of her shorts alone, but by
what lies beneath. I am not talking
about her panty lines either!

I am not a woman, I've had to study
the female dress code in much more
detail. Men and women dress total-
ly different and for totally different
reasons. Men dress to cover their
hairy sasquatcb-like bodies, and
women dress to impress men, but
more importantly, to try and look
better than the other women trying
to impress men. I see women wear-
ing uncomfortable outfits and
painful shoes just to impress men.
But you women have to realize that
for us dumb males there are just two
ways you need to dress:
A.) Be naked.
B.) Or wear something that costs
as much as getting you naked is
Many of you women may be
offended by my research, and you
have the right to be so, but you have
to realize that I am being playful and
that most of this is fiction except for
the parr about men being dumb.
Shoes-Thc latest fashion
footwear for women in college are
platform shoes. Since the beginning
of the Women's Movement, women
are still trying to match men in all
aspects, and now they are working
on height. I have noticed many
women wearing large black shoes
raised to a height of about 13 inches,
making them almost as tall as your
average male. There is a flaw in the
idea: men don't have to go down the
stairs with both bands on the banis-
ter to keep from crashing down, and
men's ankles don't twist and wobble
as they try to walk from class to class.
Try to wear what is comfortable, not
what is in style. If you go to the mall
to buy shoes, you will pay a fortune.
Try to save money buy screwing two
cans of Dinty Moore Stew to the bot-
tom of your old flip Hops and spray-
painting the the whole thing black.
With your Martha Stewart sense of
thrift and creativity, you will Uxik
great and you're sure to get a man in
Skirts and Shorts- This gives
men a reason to come to class, and it
also keeps redneck's necks red by
having them look down all the time.
The skirt should be light in color-
tan, white or peach�and if you can't
get them tight enough, try colored
Saran Wrap. The shorts need to be
"Daisy Duke" in style with no less
than 1K of your Gluteus Maximus
showing. Be sure to be constantly
tugging on them in a self-conscious
effort to cover yourself This draws
even more attention to you, and that
is the goal.
Blouses and Shirts 1-shirts are
the mainstays, just as u ith men, but
a T-shirt for a woman is much more
important. Since men are really
knuckle-dragging sex apes who
think only with their brain stem, you
have to provide ample viewing plea-
sure. Make the shirts fairly tight and
have logos and prints from bars in
resort locations on them. This
makes men think you are brainless
party animals, and they will want to
date you. You can later marry them,
show them your Master's degree
and your paycheck and make them
cry. This will do more for the
women's movement than burning
all the bras in America.
If you wear a blouse, make sure it
is white and very roomy. This allows
freshmen in your class to look
through your sleeve and see your bra.
I lair -Your hair should be consid-
ered a valuable tool to belittle all the
chicks with awful hair. Make sure
you're blonde. It's that simple. It"
you are not, load up on Clorox and
hit the sink. Have the roots showing
at all times and try to keep the
length long. If you wear a baseball
cap, then pull the pony-tail through
the back. This makes you look
tomboyish and your stupid
boyfriend will think it's cute.
Accessories -Accessories are the
final touch for your look. To be in the
cool clique, you must have the
essentials: Tattoos�Hearts, roses,
dolphins, and anything Grateftrl

places. No uniqueness is allowed.

Piercings�Pierce everything, espe-
cially the tongue. It makes men day-

UNC Student Leaders Can Impact Change
As a person who has devoted nearly
four collegiate years to the passion of
student self-governance, I am often
concerned when I hear students gripe
about the ineffectiveness of their stu-
dent representition. Students often
clamor and complain that students do
not have the power, ability and access
to influence meaningful change on a
college campus or in statewide politics.
Well this summer, these "nay say-
ers" have lieen proven wrong.
Since May, concerned students
involved in the UNC Association of
Student Governments (UNC ASG)
made the proposed $500 tuition
increase its primary focus of attention.
UNC' ASCi is an organization whose
purpose is to advocate for higher edu-
cation issues and concerns that will
enhance and improve our student col-
legiate lives. Since first mention of a
tuition increase, student leaders from
across this state banded together in a
concerted lobbying effort to contact
their elected representatives in the
North Carolina General Assembly
East (iirolina's students were well
represented by Student Body
President Cliff Webster and other
members of the student leadership
delegation. They, along with ten other
Student Body Presidents from our 16-
campus University, called legislators,
lxg.in email campaigns, sent letters
and even made appointments to see
our elected representatives.
During the last two weeks of June,
concerned students and student lead-
ers once again organized and walked-
the halls of the 1 .egislativc Building,
supplied letters and materials oppos-
ing the niition increase and attended
sessions in both the I louse and
The student voice was heard on
this issue and our presence in and
around the halls of the NCGA was
felt. Our elected representatives knew
we were concerned when their
phones 'rang from students and con-
cerned parents, read our mail and
email messages and saw us sitting in
the halls and gallery of the I louse and
This smdent lobbying campaign
along with the efforts of President
Broad. the UNC General
Administration, and the UNC Board of
Governors proves that students and
professional educators truly care about
our academic success and are working
hard to ensure that future. Wlien thc
l 'N( I General Administration, Bund of
Governors, campuses and students
work as a cohesive team, we can send a
powerful message to our elected repre-
sentatives in Raleigh; take us seriously
and work for the betterment of the stu-
dents of this state and not against us.

I love to get two fortunes in my
fortune cookie, don't you? You get
to keep the best one or keep both
, - your choice. It's almost as gratify-
ing as getting two pearls in an oys-
ter, or even two yokes in an egg. I
love getting unexpected surprises!

era of freedom before the govern-
ment took over. You used to get

One day, after I finished shop-
ping for my new wardrobe at K-
Mart, I was getting rather hungry.
There was a new place across the
parking lot, a Chinese place called
Stir Me Up.
This restaurant was a great idea.
You actually get to choose what
'goes into your stir-fry. There is an
abundance of fresh chopped veg-
gies and a fair selection of little
bags of meat sitting on a bed of ice.
You get a large bowl and All it up
with goodies. Then you go to the
sauce counter and take your pick
of a dozen different bowls of sauce.
Next, you hand it to the chef
through a little window, and he
dumps it in hot wok and stirs it all
up. You can stand there and watch
- like a few people did (who appar-
ently have never cooked before) -
or head back to the table.
The decor was very pleasant
with numerous plants laying or
hanging around. Some were live,
and some were not live. The music
piped out in the background was
appealing and added to the
ambiance of the experience. I pro-
ceeded to read my "Faze 3" while
I waited for my order.
In a few minutes, my piping
bowl of stir-fry arrived. Checking it

Trey Parker and Matt Stone, cre-
ators of "Orgazmo" and
"Bascketball have capitalized on
the popularity of their cartoon
show "Southpark by bringing it
to audiences in the form of a
motion picture. All of the usual
characters from the show, Stan,
Kyle and of course Cartman, are
present as well as cameo appear-
ances by W'inona Ryder. Saddam
I lussein and even Conan O'Brien.
'The movie version of "Southpark"
introduces a few new characters ro
the demented scene. One of the
new faces is the Mole. As always,
Parker and Stone's original brand of
humor is a mainstay of the film.
The main plot centers around
the outrage of the parents in
Southpark over an offensive movie,
Terrence and Phillip, that has been
viewed by the children of the town.
Kyle's mother leads a protest
against the movie in order to pro-
tect the children from obscenity.
'The protest is carried to the point

that the United States is declaring
war on Canada, the country that
released the film.
One subplot is the lover's quar-
rel between Saddam Hussein and
Satan. Saddam tries to use Satan in
order to get his power. All the while
Satan is waiting for his chance to
take over the world, which happens
when war breaks out. All of the
characters learn a valuable lesson at
the end of the film.
Opinions of the film,
"Southpark are mixed. "I am a
big fan of "Southpark" and its
weekly show, but I felt that the
movie was just a little too much
out of the ordinary said senior Ana
Nehring. "You can only stand so
much of "Southpark and a straight
hour and a half is too much
Michelle Jackson thinks differ-
ently. "It was really cool
Jackson said. "The funniest

'There were two scenes that
stood out. The first scene was
when Cartman was singing the full
production version of the song
about Kyle's mom. The other
scene was when Kenny's face-cov-
ering sweater is removed. Not only
do movie-goers get to see his face,
but they actually hear him speak.
It is offensive, but everyone is
equally insulted. When everyone
is insulted together, one can see
the humorous intention. Parker and
Stone go overboard with the insults,
but it is to the point that they almost
cannot be taken seriously. Some
people like this brand of humor.

Farrior. Nevertheless, anyone who

carefully, I could see that, in fact, it
was my order (you never know
these days, some hospitals have
been known to mix-up babies).
The waiter brought me a cup of
fried rice which I had ordered on
the side. It was possibly one of the
best stir-frys I've had, not oily as
some end up. I only missed the gar-
lic and die ginger which was my
fault. They had a sauce made with
both, but I missed it. I was a bit dis-
appointed in the size of some of the
vegetables; they were not chopped
up quite as much as I was used to. I
kept getting a long piece of celery or
bamboo shoot stuck up my nose.
Guess that's what I get for trying to
eat and read at the same time.
When I was done, I walked to the
check-out counter before waiting for
a ticket. I figured since there was no
real menu that most folks would pay
the same. But then, I saw the waiter
smiling. I le began scribbling out my
ticket. 'The girl standing next to him
was smiling as well. I had to check
my fly just to be sure they were only
being polite. They were.
I took the ticket to the lady at the
counter and she asked me about my
meal. I told her that I enjoyed it very
much and exchanged some small
talk. I also noted that I didn't see a
sanitation grade. She explained that
they had only been open for 10 days,
and the health department said they
would not issue one for at least 30
days. (I've learned to always ask to
see the grade-especially when you
can sec a clean white space on the
wall where the frame use to be. )
Except for the kid a couple
booths away who kept playing with
and talking cither loudly to his food,
it was a very nice experience. I do
hope they will add shrimp or some
type of seafood to the selections of
meat. It is a nice place to eat alone or
to bring a date - lunch was just $4.W
- so check it out!

Dr. Todd Finely is currently
an English professor at ECU. He
is a graduate of the University of
Puget Sound and the University
of Minnesota. In the past, he
taught at Wesleyan College as
well as in the public school sys-
tems. ' He teaches a variety of
classes, including Introduction to
Fiction Writing, Advanced
Composition and both of the
Freshman Composition classes.
ECU is an excellent school for
Finley because he gets to com-
bine both of his interests: teach-
ing and the pure art of writing.
He said he likes ECU because
he enjoys getting to know the
students, the esthetics of the uni-
versity and the unique sense of
identity that ECU has.
Finley's favorite teaching
strategy that he employs in his
classes are student conferences.
He gets to meet the students and
learn a little more about who
they are as well as connect the
class goals with the individual
student goals. In doing this, he
makes the class beneficial for all
of the students. One of the most
exciting things for Finley that is
happening currently in education
is the technological advance-
ments that are changing the way
that things are done. Finley is
working on a way to use student
conferences and his technologi-
cal knowledge to improve the
instruction for new teachers. In
conjunction with Dr. Bill Sugar,
he is currencly developing a pro-
gram that will be a software sim-
ulation of a writing conference
for pre-servicc teachers. This
program will give learning teach-
ers the ability to hold virtual con-
ferences in low-risk situations.
On a more personal note,
Finley's favorite author is Gabriel
Garcia Marquez. Marquez wrote
"100 Years of Solitude" and
"Love in the time of Cholera
"His prose is so fluid, and every
sentence is just genius Finley
said. Each of Marquez's para-
graphs are meticulously revised
and polished until they are per-
fect, and his attention to detail is
apparent in his novels. Finley
encourages his students to pay
the same attention to detail and
attempt to capture the feeling of
the moment in their words. The
audience is meant to be captivat-
ed and drawn in.
?Finley's two favorite pastimes,
besides spending time with his
wife and his daughter Rachel, are
playing Badminton and watching
When asked what would be
the one remark that he would
share with students at ECU, he
replied, "Students need to be in
charge of their own learning.
They must aggressively initiate a
dialogue with textbooks and
their won personal interests.
They must also challenge their
professors to be better teachers

Throughout Greenville, many
young kids love to play basketball.
More times than not, kids either
have to play outside or in a gym
with no air conditioning. Darrick
Mullins has developed a youth bas-
ketball camp where kids can play in
a cooler atmosphere, improve their
skills and learn a little about life
while they are having fun.
Mullins developed his camp
three years ago and has worked to
improve it each year. It has gone
from about sixty campers the first
year to a little over a hundred this
The camp takes place at J.I I
Rose High School for a week from 9
�.m. until 4 p.m. the camp costs
$75 for the week. This includes

basketball skills, but, aside from
that, he wants them to make a pos-
itive impact in society.
"Drug abuse, teen pregnancy,
team work and opening their hearts
to the community are some of the
things we stress to these kids
Carnellc Burney, Co-director of
the camp, loves working with these
kids and does various projects
involving kids throughout the year.
"Putting on a camp of this mag-
nitude is really beneficial, and it is
giving something good back to the
community Burney said.
Although this camp has only
been around for three years, a cou-
ple of former campers have taken
their talents to the next level.

Smith are teaming up together to
play at Merced Junior College in
"These are two guys who I
have dealt with personally, and
they are going on to pursue col-
careers Mullins said,
ast week's conclusion to the
camp sessions was an all-star
game. Originally, Mullins was
expecting stars such as Vince
Carter and Derrick Phelps, but
time conflicts could not be
worked out with their agents.
Mullins managed to pull togeth-
er some area standouts, such as
Lester Lyons, Bershard
Thompson and Ricco Hines, a
player for UCLA The game
really excited the kids and even
the adults with lots of high-flying
In past years, Mullins has had
former ECU players also come
for the all-star game as well as the
camp in attempts to help educate

from ECU have attended the camp
in previous sessions.
