The university Web site is in
the process of being redesigned
for easier use by students, faculty
The University Web Commit-
tee (UWC), the group respon-
sible for this project, was estab-
lished last fall to begin the long
and involved process of upgrad-
ing such a large web site. The
committee is made up of faculty
and staff members from the dif-
ferent academic departments
and experts from Computing
and Information Systems (CIS).
In order to make the project
more manageable, the UWC is
divided into five subcommittees
who meet on a regular basis. The
subcommittees are Design and
Navigation, Performance and Us-
ability Metrics, Content and Pro-
gram Mechanisms, Publicity and
Policies and Guidelines and Le-
gal Authentication. Each of these
subcommittees work separately,
but meet together every month
to report progress to the UWC
as a whole.
Although making the site
easier to navigate is the UWC's
main goal, they do have other
things on their agenda.
"There is great interest in giv-
ing the whole site a consistent
look and feel throughout all of
the pages said Ernie
Marshburn, director of CIS.
"Right now most of the pages
have their own look. We'd like
to get to the point where we have
one voice, one university, one
Another big goal for the site
is using it to market the
university's legions of educa-
tional opportunities but keeping
it functional at the same time,
according to Leslie Craigle, chair
of the publicity subcommittee.
Marshburn said that getting
user feedback is one of the most
important processes in the rede-
sign of the web site.
"We'll be sending out e-maiJs
very soon giving students and
faculty the opportunity to give
us feedback and input on the ini-
tial draft designs Marshburn
said. "The users have to like it or
they won't use it, and that won't
do us any good
The UWC does not have a
definite date when the rede-
signed site will be ready for full
time use yet.

considering it's such a long and
involved process Marshburn
said. "I encourage everyone to

It is no longer just a shot off

expected We are onto you,

It's one of the first stories heard off the rumor mill when you were a
freshman: Downtown clubs exclude minorities. Some will tell you that it's
just a myth, but many people see it happening each week. Everyone be-
comes a believer sooner or later.
Most clubs use the dress code as an excuse. Ten scantily-clad Cauca-
sian girls can pass under a sign that says, "No tank tops but the first
African-American male to show up wearing a jersey is turned around and
Sometimes they use the membership ruse. "You can't get in if you're

The point is, it happens. Of course the clubs won't say it's racial bias,
and they get away with claiming other reasons for turning out minorities,
but we know what's going on. You can see it when you look around
inside clubs and notice how few dark-skinned faces you see.
Perhaps the owners are afraid of developing a reputation for being a
"black club Maybe they fear gang violence down here in tiny Greenville.
It could be they just don't like African-Americans.
Whatever the reason, downtown should know that we are aware of
this problem. It is no longer just a shot off the rumor mill, ignored and
expected. We are onto y8u, and we're coming to get you.

Possibility of human cloning excites one weirdo
I saw on the news last week that American scien-
tists have successfully cloned a monkey and like all
ground-breaking biological science the subject was
given a very stupid name: Tetra. This is a major break-
through as far as the ability to create a human being is
concerned, since a monkey and a human are only
about a two percent difference in DNA. (Sometimes
less if the human has been drinking.) I think we will
see the first cloning of a human very soon. Get your
tickets now kiddies. Darwin and God are about to have
a steel cage match.
I am for cloning. I don't see massive dangers in the
immediate future from cloning so I say go for it. As far
as the long term, well that will be a nightmare of Bib-
lical proportions. But by then I will be dead and not
bothered by this whole mess. So copy away folks! Set
up production lines and clone everything from your
kid's dead goldfish all the way to porn stars.
Questions do arise, however: If we are to clone
someone, who should it be? Who will be chosen to be
the first copied? Should we clone a movie star? Or clone
a senator? Or a famous artist? And should the first clon-
ing be sponsored by Kinko's? And how will this play
with all the religious folk? I am sure the pope and the
other religious ilk are pulling their hair out and losing
sleep about all this cloning business. We are about to
take God's ability to create in his own image and per-
form the same miracle. (Except our process costs a lot
more and we won't drown our subjects if they don't
turn out the way we want them to).
Now I know president Whatshisname has banned
government funding for human cloning research, but
when has this ever stopped anything of Importance?
Popular scientists are everywhere and they will scrounge
oTjfAhe capital from private investors and get the job
As in every good science fiction story, which clon-
ing has emerged from, there are bad guys out there
who will want to use the ability for their own dastardly
deeds. What about the dumb people � the rich? Mil-
lionaire old ladies will want to dig up their old dead
cats and have "Muffin" brought back to a boring old
life. Old fading Wall Street barons will want to clone
themselves so their idiot step-sons won't inherit their
illegal stock portfolios. What about the tree huggers?
Will they want to clone John Denver and Jerry Garcia
and have thousand of peace freaks sitting on the roof
of the capital smoking avocado peels and wondering
whether trees dream? Will the Mormons in Utah want
to clone themselves so they have a bigger voice to chant
"our Jesus is better than your Jesus?
This whole cloning business is a gas to watch. This
will lead to major ethical and sociological problems in
the future that will make Roe vs. Wade look like an
episode of "Judge Judy I am gonna enjoy watching
all this unravel in the next couple of decades and I
think it will become one of the most important issues
this species will ever have to deal with. But until all
hell breaks loose, I will continue the cloning that has
given meaning to my life and to those around me: clon-
ing cash with my laser printer.

If you're like me, you're tired of America Online
because you're unable to sign on to it at a decent hour.
For me, I can usually only sign on around 11 p.m.
Recently, AOL and Time Warner merged creating
a company worth over $300 billion. With all of this

Greenville alone holds over 50,000 people within
its boarders, then adding the outlying towns of Ayden,
Winterville and Kinston to the Greenville number cre-
ates more congestion than one can deal with. So the
competition at night to get online is a lot like clowns
attempting to fill a midget car, sometimes it happens,
sometimes it doesn't.
So what can we do? Some people I have talked to
have left AOL for the small local Internet service pro-
viders popping up all over town, who promise instant
connection. But after switching most of these same
people complain about the more difficult interfaces
that some of these ISPs have and they are still receiv-
ing busy signals at dial-up.
I have heard from a lot of you that you have e-
mailed AOL about this problem. Personally, when I
tried it I received a lame, generically generated e-mail
containing a "Thank you for your concern yet I
haven't seen any results.
AOL claims that last October it reached the 20 mil-
lion member mark, but I fear that with this great ex-
pansion they are losing touch with the small commu-
nities they helped wire years ago. To them, Greenville
and our problems are just a minor blip on their screens.
For now we have to sit patiently and wait, unless
by some miracle, they listen up and respond to our
plight. Maybe with this new merger the Greenville area
will receive cable modems, which are faster, much like
the ones already used in Charlotte and parts of north-
ern Virginia. But until that time, we are just slaves to
the new Big Brother.

Taking on the elements to get to class
It's hard to know who to trust anymore
What does it take to cancel classes at ECU? Obvi-
ously last semester we Suffered a horrible encounter
with Mother Nature and were forced to stay home.
However, when places start to close in and around
Greenville due to weather, it makes you wonder if we,
ECU students and employees, need to be out driving
I realize that it is early in the new semester and it's
a problem to cancel classes, but unfortunately we do
have to look out for our fellow pirates and consider
the severity of the driving conditions.
Tuesday morning I was on my way from to school
after work and had trouble sliding all over the roads. I
hated the fact that I had to call my teacher and tell
him that I was not coming to class, but what else was I
supposed to do?
I am sure he must have thought that it was just a
way to get out of class. But, the roads were bad enough
to cancel Pitt County schools, yet we were expected to
take them on to get to morning classes.
Why is it that the county will close the public
schools but the university will uphold expectations for
attendance? I understand that there is an allotted num-
ber of hours and class meetings that have to be held
and that puts pressure on everyone to fulfill that policy,
but what about safety?
I think that if the roads and the weather condi-
tions are too dangerous for travel, then the many
people that live off campus commuting to school ev-
ery day should be taken into consideration. There are
days when it is simply too hazardous to attend.
I know this might not be the most popular way to
look at it, but when I get up for school and see that the
public schools and other facilities are not opening, I
really think about whether or not I should try to com-
bat the elements.
According to the Office of Planning and Institu-
tional Research, there were a total of 18,223 students
enrolled at ECU, of those, 13,270 were commuters.
These numbers reflect the fact that during inclement
weather, a large portion of our students have to deal
with driving and might not attempt to go to class if
the rest of the county isn't trying either.
I am not saying that once Pitt County shuts djiwn.
ECU should also, I just feel as though more consider-
ation should be paid since two-thirds of the popula-
tion commutes to class.
. None of us want to miss class, but none of us should
be asked to take any unnecessary risks to attend either.

Maybe it is just me, but I have a flaw that just will
not escape my body. I know, I know, you people could
probably point out dozens of flaws in me but this one
causes me the most trouble. The problem, you ask?
Well, I trust people too much and have a strange be-
lief that everyone on the planet is basically good.
I believe that when push comes to shove, people
choose the right thing to do even if it is the hardest
decision to make. 1 expect people to be generous and
understanding, caring and compassionate. Oh dear
God, how that notion is flawed.
Call me the eternal optimist, a goodie-two-shoes
or just downright stupid, but up until a little trip over
the holidays, the notion of goodness guided my day. I
would help anyone out of a jam. ?
Some rough and tumbled hobo came up to me on
the street and asked for a couple of dollars so he could
get a meal (aka Colt 45) and what did 1 do? Hand him
a few bucks and direct him to Wendy's. I felt no ap-
prehension in giving him the money because I trusted
in the fact that he would do the right thing, just as 1
would if in his shoes. I watched him carefully and what
did he do? Walk right across the street into Wendy's
and get himself some grub. It made me feel confident
that others would act the way he did. Until Mobile
What literally changed my outlook on people in
the span of 24 hours happened in Mobile, Ala. while
some friends and I were down there for the bowl game
(a.k.a. "ghetto stadium) We were all downtown on
Dauphin Street waiting for our cab when a well-dressed
man came up to my friend Goo and asked him for a
couple of dollars so he could get a cab ride home.
As I walked up, he went into this long story about
how this and that prevented him from doing that and
this. Naturally, I felt sorry for the man and gave him
2o bucks. I know that may sound stupid but this guy
looked right out of a J. Crew catalog and those Long
Island I drank.
The man took down our hotel and promised to get
back to me the next day to pay me back a whopping
$100. The guy never followed through on his word. I
trusted him and where did it get me? Twenty dollars
in the hole, that's where. My friends have yet to let
me live this down (just ask me about "Moron Money)
I find it truly sad that this man's actions have so
changed my outlook on people. I don't trust many
people anymore and for that alone, I hope that man
ODs on the crack he bought with my money.
Some obviously needy guy came up to me down-
town the other week and I damn near hit the man. It
just made me furious. How sad is it that you cannot
trust anyone anymore? What ever happened to hon-
esty? Maybe it's just a sign of the times but for my
sanity's sake, I hope not.

How Miccah feels about everything
really necessary to keep three wildly expensive con-
struction projects going on simultaneously? Am I just
being idealistic when I dream of a time when every-
body will be happy with the way things are?
1 wonder how many T-shirts the average college
student collects over a four-year period. I've noticed
how easily we students are manipulated by offers of
free T-shirts from banks and credit card companies.
Heck, our own school even uses our insatiable lust
for free T-shirts to aid its own ends. I mean, who would
go to those wacky pool parties if not for the shirts? I
sure wouldn't! But just to bolster my argument, I'll
admit that I not only hurled my body into icy waters
at the SRC Polar Bear jump for a T-shirt, I also did it
again for a second one!
I'm convinced that we're all subjects in some
twisted Pavlovian experiment designed to condition
us to perform for T-shirts, as a way of strengthening
our cotten-based economy. But when I think really hard
about it, my brain starts to hurt! I rest my case.

Men's basketball falls to American, George Mason
Pirates lose three
conference games in a row
ECU dropped two games in Colonial Athletic
Association play over the weekend to make it three
loses in a row after a five game winning streak.
"We are more up beat now (after three loses) than
when we had the other losing streak senior forward
Neil Punt said. "We know we can be successful
The Pirates traveled to American Saturday to face
the Eagles who had hot beaten ECU since the 1997-
American opened the game with a bucket that
gave the Eagles a lead they would maintain until the
ECU went scoreless in the first 7:35 of the game
when Punt sank a deuce that pulled the Pirates within
five with the score at 7-2.
The Pirates ended the first half shooting just 36
percent but entered the locker room down by five
with the score at 28-23 in favor of the Eagles.
"We were fortunate to be down just five points at
the half said Bill Herrion, first year head coach. "We
should have been down by 25 at the half. We had 10
turnovers in each half, which we can't do and still
put ourselves in a position to win. Today we were
challenged and we didn't have anybody step up
ECU opened the second half with a 16-8 run that
gave the Pirates its first lead of the game at 41-40.
The Eagles followed the Pirate run with an 11-0 run
of their own to fake a 12-point lead with 5:19 left in
ECU pulled within five but the Eagles sealed their
72-�4 victory with free throws down the stretch.
American outshot the Pirates completing 46 percent
to ECU'S 42 percent while ECU out rebounded their
opponent for'the 15th time this season out of 16
"I thought we had played well the previous two
weeks but the last two games it seems as though we
have fallen back to where we were before Christmas
Herrion said. "We have to try to get it straightened
The loss was the second straight for the Pirates
(7-9, 2-3 CAA) after coming off of a five game win-
ECU then matched up with defending CAA tour-
nament champion George Mason, Monday, in more
CAA action where the Pirates gave up their third game
in a row, 75-66.
The Pirates held tight throughout the game as
neither team had more than a five point lead until
the final minutes of the game.
ECU'S senior guard Garrett Blackwelder gave the
Pirates a 56-54 lead with 6:21 left in the game when
Travis Holcomb-Faye looks to pass against Richmond, (photo by Garrett McMillan)
center Alphons van Ireland was called for a foul on
George Mason's following possession and Herrion was
called for a technical foul.
The Patriots capitalized on the call that lead to a
6-0 run by George Mason.
"The first thing I did in the locker room was apolo-
gize to our basketball team for the technical foul
Herrion said. "It hurt our team. Our guys played hard
tonight. They did everything we asked them to do and
we were in a position to win the basketball game
Punt felt otherwise about the call.
"I don't think the technical had any affect on our
loss Punt said. "We were in the game the whole time,
even after the technical
Blackwelder stepped up with a three that helped
the Pirates cut the Patriot lead to one before George
Mason went on a nine point run to take a 10- point
lead before finishing the Pirates.
ECU came out of the game with 13 three-point
buckets (28 attempts) that tied the school record for
three-pointers in a game.
Blackwelder also set a personal mark with a career
high 30 points which were the most points a Pirate
has scored in a game since Lester Lyons scored 33
points against Old Dominion in the 1991-92 season.
ECU, now 7-10,2-4 CAA, will take to the court this
Saturday at 2 p.m. when they play host to UNC-
"We're up for Saturday's game because it is

ECU's track teams face many changes
Pirates hope to reap
benefits of new track
Damon Davis looks to continue ECU'S sprint dominance, (file
This year's ECU men's and women's track teams will
be the first to use the school's new track. The new track
that surrounds Bunting field replaced the worn and
hard old one that many felt hindered both the athletes
and the program.
"When we used to recruit with the old track, every-
thing would be going fine until we took the kid out to
see the track; it would be like a time bomb said Bill
Carson, head coach for the men's team. "Now we can
go out and show the kids the track and they can leave
here with a positive feeling
The new track should keep the athletes in better
"It is much needed. We haven't had a new track in
a while and it should cut down on injuries said jun-
ior Rasheca Barrow.
"It's much softer, so we should be less prone to in-
jury said senior Lynn Stewart.
However, the new track did not come without a
price. The track was laid down during the fall semester.
Construction on the project was not completed until
December. Thus, the teams were unable to practice on
a track. They spent much of the fall working on their
strength and running on grass. The lack of traditional
Mauresmo upset at Aussie Open
1999 Australian Open finalist Amelie Mauresmo
lost to Patty Schnyder in Monday's action at the
Open in Melbourne. American Jennifer Capriati beat
14th seed Dominique van Roost. Lindsey Davenport,
4th seed Mary Pierce, 8th seed Amanda Coetier, 9th
seed Julie Halard Decougis all advanced, while 5th
seed Nathalie Tauziat lost in what she said would be
her final Australian Open.
Misty Home lends experience to WZMB
Injured guard to
do color for WZMB
Misty Home's senior season was
lot turning out exactly as she had
loped. Following reconstructive
cnee surgery over the summer, and
i nasty bout with tonsillitis that
aused her to miss the first week of
:lasses, Home decided not to play
ler final season for the ECU
vomen's basketball team.
"I made the decision not to play
efore practice Home said. "I
lidn't want to risk my health
"We missed her, she is an im-
jortant part of the team said Head
-oach Dee Gibson.
Misty Home averaged 7.2 points per
game in her Pirate career (file photo)
Faced with a season spent on
the bench, Home has found an-
other way to participate. She has
decided to lend her three years of
experience in ECU'S basketball pro-
gram and her knowledge of the
game to WZMB and their coverage
of Lady Pirate basketball.
"We figured, it was her senior
year and she wasn't really doing
anything but sitting on the bench,
preparing the team and pumping
up the players said Bob Smith,
WZMB general manager and play-
by-play announcer. "We thought it
was kind of a good way to give back
for her career at ECU and it's been
a great fit for us
"I asked Coach Gibson and she
thought it would be fun Home
See Home, page 9
Toni Kilgore hopes to improve the Lady Pirate jumps
training worries the coaches.
"It was a tough fall for us Carson said. "The new
track was a long time coming. It was a little late. For
me, I'm behind. 1 couldn't practice the way I wanted
to, spiking up every day. But I think we're in pretty
good shape. I don't think we have the sprint speed
yet and I don't think we will run fast for a period
Some of the runners think the training methods
will benefit them in the long run.
"Actually, I think it was good said senior Lynn
Stewart. "We had to focus on strength and not just
speed. I think it will keep us from peaking too early
The new track wasn't the only major change in
the track program. This summer, long-time women's
track and cross-country coach, Charles "Choo" Jus-
tice, stepped down. Replacing him is former Assistant
Coach Matt Munson.
"Well it's going to be different, it's going to be a
change said junior Marshari Williams.
Munson coached under Justice last season, after a
stint as an assistant at Columbia. Munson worked
mostly with the throwers and sprinters last season.
"He pretty much has the same role as last year,
only now he has more administrative duties Barrow
