A-Rise sponsors students at ski clinic
Ski Beech Resort
challenges disabled
Angela Harne
ASSISTANT NEWS EDITOR
Ski Beech Resort's Annual
Adapted Ski Clinic celebrated its
17 year anniversary with a four-
day program for disabled persons
in January.
This program takes place
once a year and offers the dis-
abled lessons, equipment and
new friends. According to Terry
Edwards, program assistant for A-
Rise, this is the second year that
ECU has attended the clinic, and
they plan on making it a tradi-
tion.
"We attended this program
last year, along with the univer-
sities of Georgia and Virginia
Edwards said. "The coordinators
of the program were so impressed
with our students and volunteers
that they invited us back for
many years to come
Edwards said that an anony-
mous donor gave the A-Rise pro-
gram $1000 to help with the ex-
penses to make a trip back to Ski
Beech Resort.
"We were excited to make the
trip again Edwards said. "The
clinic is supported by the Atlanta
Chapter of Disabled Sports of the
USA, and they promised A-Rise
yearly donations to make the trip
possible
According to Edwards, two
volunteers attended this year.
"Usually the volunteers who
attend are recreation leisure ma-
jors Edwards said. "The volun-
teers mainly help the students
Mark Janac and Shawn
Hessee were the two students
who attended the clinic.
"This clinic was offered to the
university at a price of $250 per
student Edwards said. "Thanks
to the donor, disabled students
attended for free. Students got
specialized equipment and les-
sons. They were able to ski Tues-
day through Friday
John Brown, coordinator of
the adventure program, said in a
past interview that the A-Rise
program always offers trips and
experiences for students with
disabilities.
"We regularly sponsor trips
for A-Rise Brown said. "These
are experiences students may not
have had available to them in
the past
Edwards said the Student
Recreation Center (SRC) and A-
Rise have opened many doors for
students and staff with disabili-
ties. The annual ski trip is now
among these opportunities.
"This yearly event has helped
to build students' confidence
Edwards said. "It has given them
an opportunity to be part of a
large event, while meeting oth-
ers with their own disability. See-
ing others, who may be older,
with their disability shows them
how to accommodate with it In
the future
Caneshia McAllister, a junior
who has attended A-Rise activi-
ties in the past, said the opportu-
nities are endless.
"Unfortunately I was not able
to attend this year's ski trip
McAllister said. "But I did last
year, and it was an experience I
will never forget. I loved it. Ski-
ing was a sport which I never
thought 1 would be able to par-
ticipate in
Student Shawn Hessee at-
tended the trip this year.
"The trip really wakes up
those with disabilities Hessee
said. "It shows them what they

Hurricane Floyd floods Internet
Special Collections
Department to post Web site
Angela McKay
STAFF WRITER
The Special Collections Department of Joyner
Library is collecting materials for a "Flood of the
Century" Web site and manuscript collection.
Mary Boccaccio, the director of the Special
Collections Department, has been collecting items
since Sept. 12. Boccaccio is in search of video foot-
age, photos, books, essays, statistics and interviews.
As of now, the collection consists of video footage
from local television stations WITN, WNCT and
WRAL.
The Kinston newspaper added the book "Hur-
ricane Floyd and the 500-Year Flood from the
Kinston Free Press The book includes photos,
articles and statistics from the Lenoir County area
and is available at the Kinston Newspaper Office.
Still in the process of being collected is five
r
hours of video footage from the National Guard,
essays written by the students of Bethel Elemen-
tary School and video footage from the Windsor
Community.
The Web site will be dedicated to a chronology
of events covering the loss of housing, business
and agriculture.
"It's going to be a small site, but there's some
good information on it Boccaccio said. "There's
a section that has about eight to 10 photographs
and another section that has statistics and links
The site will also cover the events which
brought the community closer together with the
help of national organizations FEMA, The Salva-
tion Army and The Red Cross, to name a few.
The Special Collections Department will be
accepting documentation of the flood and the af-
termath for the Web site for the next 5-10 years.
All donations can be delivered to Special Collec-
tions located on the fourth floor of Joyner Library.
Boccaccio plans to have the Web site posted in two
weeks.

Guide to aid in
housing search
Maura Buck
STAFF WRITER
In order to help stu-
dents who are going to
be living on their own
for the first time, the
Community Connec-
tion Network has put
together a guide en-
titled, "A Place of Your
Own The booklet is
designed to answer po-
tential questions that
may arise when living
in an off-campus com-
munity.
. I The network, which
consists of representa-
tives of the community
of Greenville, the ECU
Division of Student life, ECU
students and neighborhood
association presidents, wrote
the guide last summer.
"It helps the student who
is looking to live off out in the
community for the first time
by providing important infor-
mation and resources said
Michele Myers, director of
Adult and Commuter Student
Services.
The book covers every-
thing from frequently asked
questions about off-campus
leasing to explainations of
what landlords are typically
responsible for fixing. In ad-
dition, it provides informa-
tion about when a landlord
can keep the deposit and
what one can do if their land-
lord is treating them unfairly.
"I am really considering
living off campus next year
and I think that a book like
this would help me out
through the process said
freshman Wes Cherry.
There is also a section
called 'Community Connec-
tions which outlines the
signs of healthy and un-
healthy living communities.
It includes tips on how one
can be a positive force in the
community while becoming
involved with their neighbor-
hood. Finally, there is a list of
resources, including emer-
gency numbers, city parking
information and a directory
of some common university
resources.
The Community Network published a
booklet as a guide for students living on ' -
their own for the first time. "C
"This book gets the city in-
formation to the student who
is a member of two communi-
ties-ECU and the city of
Greenville Myers said.
"Moving off campus is a
big decision and I know that a
book like this would help me
a great deal in situations that 1
would otherwise have no idea
how to handle said Kelvin
Stroupe.
"I wasn't aware of this pro-
gram and I know that in cases
such as this past year with the
flood, I could have definitely
used it in dealing with my '
landlord said Junior Joe
Feno.
The guide also discusses
city ordinances. For example,
it explains noise expectations,
pets, disorderly conduct, alco- "
hoi and games In the street.
Furthermore, it incorporates
information on ECU parking
and transit as well as parking
within the city of Greenville.
The book is free and stu-
dents can acquire a copy by
calling 328-6881 or picking
one up at the office of Adult
and Commuter Services in the
lower level of Mendenhall Stu-
dent Center. Myers will be
holding a program also en-
titled "A Place of Your Own"
where she will answer any ad-
ditional questions students
may have.

Religious
leader visits ECU
Imam Mohammed speaks on diversity
ACROSS OTHER CAMPUSES
Carolyn Herold
STAFF WRITER
Imam W. Deen Mohammed, the recognized leader
and spokesman of 2.5 million American-Muslims, de-
livered a speech at ECU last week.
The title of his speech was "Diversity and Cultural
Sensitivityr-Living Together in the New Millennium
Mohammed was invited to ECU by a group of stu-
dent representatives for the Minority Students Coali-
tion as part of an ongoing race relations and cultural
sensitivity initiative.
�. -We started the process of getting him to come here
in June said Na'im Akbar of the Minority Student
Coalition. "We contacted an Imam in Durham who
has direct access to Imam Mohammed and he helped
us contact him
The task of bringing such a well-known religious
leader to the university was mainly a student-driven
effort.
"We helped facilitate the planning and the public-
ity for the event said Yolanda Thigpen, chair of the
Minority Student Coalition.
In his speech, which was attended by approximately
;30O people, Mohammed spoke of having more peace
$nd cooperation between different cultures by "accept-
�iftg the oneness of mankind, and building upon that
iqueness and diversity
r Mohammed said that acceptance of others goes
W&fig with the Muslim belief that the "power of uni-
versal truths will bring sincere people to join the fam-
ily bf man and embrace the family of Islam
' � Akbar said that ECU had never hosted a Muslim
speaker before. "They the university didn't really know
What to expect, but because of his message they're in-

NCSU�Schoolwork alone can keep many stu-
dents busy, while others can balance their work with
other tasks. Chris Spencer, or "Spence" as he likes to
be called, is majoring in architecture and philoso-
phy at North Carolina State University in addition
to being president and CEO ofSentrisystems.com, a
business located on Centennial Campus.
Spencer describes Sentrisystems.com as a com-
pany that uses the most recent security and encryp-
tion technology for collaboration between businesses
and a company that allows consumers to control
what information is released and how the informa-
tion is circulated.
"We're enabling businesses to work together in
ways they've never been able to do up to this point
Spencer said, "and we're giving consumers � people
like you and me � the control they rightfully de-
serve over that information The company is still
rather small, and five out of seven employees are
still taking classes at NCSU. Spencer said NCSU has
been closely involved and helped make tfie'eom-
pany a reality.
Centennial Venture Partners have invested in this
company as well, providing money, advice and con-
tacts for Sentrisystems.com, Spencer said.
"This new venture is as 'home grown' as it will
ever get for N.C. State said Art Padilla, a professor
in the College of Management and informal advisor
to Sentrisystems.com. "All of the participants are
N.C. State students and faculty, and it is the first
company to occupy the Entrepreneurial Develop-
ment Center at N.C. Statc.it is an activity in which
the entire university can take great pride because it
represents a splendid marriage of the university, edu-
cation, creativity and free enterprise "The experi-
ence we've all garnered from either working at the
university, or working with the people within the
university has been highly valuable and appreci-
ated Spencer said. "In fact, it is something that I
will remain aware of as the company grows

They stripped in protest of the alleged defores-
tation done by the Fisher Family, one of the Gap's
largest investors, as well as the alleged sweatshop
labor practices used by the company.
"We're protesting the Fishers because they're
claiming to be good stewards of the land said Mary
Bull, the national coordinator of "Save The Red-
woodsBoycott the Gap Campaign "They're hypo-
crites
But Alan Marks, a spokesman for Gap, Inc. said
the clothing company does not privately own any
manufacturing plants and has strict measures to
make sure child labor or sweatshop practices do not
occur.
He said there are 60 employees who monitor
such factories world-wide. If factories are found to
be in violation of the Gap's policies, they may be
reprimanded depending on the seriousness of the
violation or the Gap may take their business else-
where.
"We're constantly monitoring factories to make
sure they follow all our guidelines Marks said.
"We're in the factories on a constant basis
Marks also noted that the company is not affili-
ated in any legal way with the Mendocino Redwood
company, the group protesters said is clearing for-
est land for the Fisher family.
The protesters led a similar protest Saturday at
the Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica march-
ing from the Gap to the Banana Republic, which,
along with Old Navy, is owned by the Gap.
Though one of the main focuses of the protest
was to stop deforestation, some were there more in
support of ending the alleged unfair labor practices
of the Gap.

Their goal is to continue the pro-

"We're against all kinds of slave
labor, and Gap kind of represents

undeclared student at UCLA.
In Westwood, the protesters ar-
rived around 11:30 a.m. shouting
chants of "For Redwoods, For Work-
ers, Boycott Gap Some were wear-
ing T-shirts with a blue on white
Gap logo that said "Crap" instead
of "Gap
After a speech explaining their
cause, about 13 protesters wearing
boxes spelling out such slogans as
"Save the Redwoods" or "Boycott
the Gap" began a parody of the Gap
commercial that uses the song "Just
Can't Get Enough
After dancing to the song and
singing the word "money" at the
end of the chorus, the protesters
dislodged from their boxes and
stripped to their underwear.
Though the protesters originally
planned or. stripping completely-
after the police said they would be
arrested for indecent exposure if
they did�the protesters felt that the
media coverage was not enough for
them to undergo arrest.
Bull said her group had stripped
completely in other cities such as
San Francisco, Amsterdam and New
York.
"We didn't know that L.A. was
so straight-laced she said.
Though the protest attracted
viewers, some of the observers said
they did not really understand what
was being protested.

Akbar said.
Mohammed became an Imam in
February of 1975, following in his
father's footsteps. He has since re-
ceived many awards and
acknowledgements. He has written
several books, led a prayer in Wash-
ington D.C. and was the first Mus-
lim to deliver an invocation to the
Senate and to the Georgia Legisla-
tive body. To most Muslims, the title
"Imam" means a religious leader. To
others, such as the Shiites, it refers
to the head of state, both religiously
and politically.

OUR VIEW
"When I was your age, there was so much water in my apartment, we
had to take motorboats to get across the street Imagine telling that to
your grandchildren. Well, thanks to the items that )oyner Library's Special
Collections department has collected, it will be possible to prove to future
generations (unlike the whole walking 10 miles in the snow thing).
Come onit was deemed the Flood of the Century. We all experienced
and survived something that hasn't happened in 500 years. And although
it was an experience that many will not soon forget, it's something that
binds all eastern North Carolinians. Photographs that once held such fond
memories of events past and old books you dreaded can now leave you
with a totally different thought that you can share with others visiting
Special Collections. Just imagine in the year 2150 when people go into the
library and see pictures of the first car you ever owned being swallowed by
the Tar, or that big bonfire you had because it was your only source of
light. Now it's all a part of history.
Although students' personal belongings paint a vivid picture of the
mayhem that was created by Floyd, the collection will also have records of
the sites and sounds that TV news stations aired to viewers around the
world, giving people a glimpse into what we experienced.
Donations are now being taken by the Special Collections department.
Wouldn't you like to be apart of history�a history that people will remem-
ber for many years to come? Contribute a piece of your past so students
who will attend ECU in the future will see what we survived.

"Simpsons" shows subtle humor

OPINION COLUMNIST
;� Hi, I'm Demosthenes. You might remember me
from such columns as "Baby Seals on Your Feet and
�Presidential Lunacy in the 20th Century At 10:35
nearly every evening it is time to take a load off both
your feet and your mind to sit back and enjoy a won-
der of cartoon zaniness and wit. "The Simpsons
which airs on the Fox network at this time tests the
limits of reason and sanity as Bart, Lisa, Homer, Marge
and Maggie show us the in's and out's of the perfect
nuclear family.
'This brain-child of cartoonist Mat Groening has
ari emotional depth seldom seen or expected from an
animated series. The small town family splays the
human condition for us as they struggle with greed,
faith, envy, hope, infidelity, alcoholism, sibling rivalry,
love and hate every day. This columnist struggles and
laiighs along with them as often as possible.
I can't think of another show that anyone from
an 8 year old to an old hippie can enjoy and each
walk away with something different. This is due to
the ability of the writers in adding many layers of
meaning to the humor, and hiding their social com-
mentary subtly behind all the slapstick Bangs and Pows
and the Dohs of Homer. No one is safe from ridicule,
not the town drunk nor the president of the United
States, because once in a while, everyone needs to laugh
at themselves.
Here is a little trivia just to see how closely you pay
attention, f. What is Chief Wiggum's son's name? 2.
What kind of animal does Burns have standing in his
office? 3. Name Marge's sisters. 4. What kind of animal
was Blinky? S. And finally, What is the bus driver's fa-
vorite pastime? If you got five out of five, e-mail me,
and in no less than 3-7 workdays you will receive my
admiration and respect. You might also challenge me
with some trivia, if you dare.
I salute you Mat Groening and company for making
everyone realize just how silly they really are, and for
not taking anything too seriously. The Simpsons have
their moments of doubt and pain, but as in life, they
always pull through and live to laugh another day. So
remember, don't think out loud, never rob the Quickie
Mart and avoid Guatemalan Insanity Peppers, until we
meet again.

Expectations can be the downfall of any situation.
I always try not to look into things too much before
trjey actually take place, but realistically that is almost
impossible. 1 think everyone sets themselves up for
despair or heartache because of underlying pressure
that they bring on themselves. So why can't we just
take each day and each situation for what it is with-
out assuming the outcome?
For example, let's take the parents or as I refer to
them my parental units. They expect us to graduate
from high school, come to college and make some-
thing of ourselves�and all in a four-year time period.
As we all know it is becoming a difficult task to do in
the allotted time, and therefore the first disappoint-
ment is upon us.
Then, they have this idea that after the four years
is up we will get a job and become successful. I wish
the best to those that will achieve this! Needless to
say, if the parental units had not put this added pres-
sure into our heads we might actually have the moti-
vation to do it.
Now lets look at everyday expectations, such as
those in a classroom and those set by our professors.
Before I start, though, I have to tell you a story that
about 175 people (at least) will enjoy reading about. I
am currently enrolled in a physics class that meets on
Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 2 p.m3 p.m.
This class is packed everyday, and is often a little noisy
due to the size of the class.
One student, however, decided to acknowledge this
problem. She raised her hand and addressed the pro-
fessor by saying something to the effect that she could
not hear him due to the buzz in the room and the fact
that this was the rudest class she had ever attended.
Immediately following this statement another stu-
dent addressed her, giving her explicit directions con-
cerning some relations that she may endure. Neverthe-
less, the entire class was laughing for the remaining 10
minutes.
This entire scenario could have been avoided if this
one female student did not hold such high expecta
tions of our physics class. And I think it is fair to con-1
elude that our professor's expectations of class partici-
pation were exceeded.
As we all know, expectations in a romantic relation-
ship can also cause trauma. For me, I'm not in a rela-
tionship right now and therefore cannot expect any-
thing, but I do know what it is like!
I also have friends that tell me their issues all the
time, so I do have first-hand experience. The biggest
idea that I want to touch on here is that all people have
feelings. They may not be the same as yours, but that
does not make them a bad person.
For ail you guys that assume bad things about girls
give them a chance. And if nothing else, remember that -
the date will only iast a few hours. Also, I was told or
Monday that all girls are witches, or that we might ac;
tually be the devil on the inside. As for the girls that
think boys are scum, I hope somewhere there is a prince
charming waiting for you.
I want to make sure that everyone realizes the im-
pact that expectations can have on a college student.
I've found that the majority of the time you have great.
expectations, you are most likely going to get the op- J
posite effect or at least be terribly disappointed.
So why bother putting your time and effort into a;
dead end? Take the time to step away and decide what
you want rather than what you think you should get
Only time will tell what will happen, but if you look at
life realistically there is a better chance for success.

Hillary Clinton announces New York senate bid
Easy on the Web forwards, Trigger
Ryan Kennemur
OPINION COLUMNIST
!
Stephen Kleinschmit
OPINION COLUMNIST
Finally, it seems the hardly long-awaited an-
nouncement of Hillary Clinton's senate bid has finally
come. The long-time one month resident of New York
will compete against New York City Mayor Rudy "con-
crete overshoes" Giuliani in this year's senate runoff.
Score 1-0 Hillary for the Letterman interview.
It seems really shady that Hillary would seek a bid
in New York, a state known primarily for its violent
crime, and the question "What is a grit?"
J I would think that she would have the strongest
support back in Arkansas, the home of Daisy BB guns.
There seems to be strong support for the Clintons
there, especially from the all-so-important beef jerky
lobby. In all seriousness, why would anyone vote for
you if you lived in their state for a month?
; Giuliani has been a New Yorker for quite a while,
and has been one of the best things to come out of
New York since LI. Cool J. Following the traditions of
other great mayors such as Jesse "the monkey"
Ventura, Giuliani seeks to represent his state in a
higher office than his present one. I think this is only
a logical step for him, and I believe he would prob-
ably make an effective senator. And not that I am hint-
ing that he probably has mob connections, but how
do you think JFK won Chicago? Score 1-1, tie.
Meanwhile, Hillary has filled her days with lun-
cheons and interviews, as well as shopping online for a
chastity belt for her husband. Though she is a highly
effective speaker, her pre-campaign promises, like many
others, are generalized and a bit unrealistic: "I will end
all poverty in New York, and deliver a pony to every
young girl who wants one I do believe that her candi-
dacy is a little more legit than others in the past (such
as Sonny Bono).
The thing I like best about Giuliani is his conserva-
tive nature. He's not always one to compromise him-
self to the bleeding heart liberalism cleverly dubbed as
pop culture. Want to use endowment of the arts funds
to make a portrait of the Virgin Mary using cut-outs of
porn and topped with elephant dung? Not in my city
says Giuliani. He threatens cutting arts funding by two-
thirds and it's gone the next day. Excellent.
Giuliani is someone who encourages creativity in
the arts, but draws the line at government sponsored
obscenity. If you want obscenity, go to the local quickie
mart and pick up the latest issue of Swank magazine.
Score 2-1, Giuliani.

In this day and age of technology, letter writing
has become a thing of the past. Why pick up a piece of
paper and pencil when you can just type out a quick
note and have it delivered in seconds. Isn't the Internet
great?
Nope. With the incarnation of e-mail came the idea
of junk e-mail. I would like to go on record as saying
that I despise forwards. 1 get about a thousand or so
each day from people who, before they got into e-mail,
I considered to be my friends. They aren't funny. But I,
the quintessential opinion columnist, have made a
shocking discovery. There are only four forwards that
exist in the world todaythey just get passed around
over and over. Actually, I have a similar theory regard-
ing fruitcake.
1.Virus Notice: This can be under the subject of
"Melissa "Blue Sky" and various other Allman Bros,
song titles. It tries to warn people about an email-trans-
mitted virus that can do a great bit of damage to your
hard drive. Also, they can kill your pet fish, tell your
friends what you really think of them, lock your keys
in your car, throw your clothes over a fence when you're
skinny dipping, give you lockjaw and night vision, suck
all the paint off your house and give your family a
permanent orange Afro.
2.Chain Letters: A sweet poem becomes bitter when
you get to the bottom and see what lies in store for
those who refuse to forward the letter to 10 friends.
The people that come up with this stuff have a job
eating checkers at their local loony bin. Por ejemplo,
Agatha Crumb was checking her e-mail one morning
and she saw this similar e-mail on her computer. She
read it in it's entirety and thought nothing of it. On;
the way to her boxing class, she was hit in the head by
a safe that was, for reasons unknown, dangling over
Main Street. She was knocked unconscious just as the
man of her dreams was walking across the street carry-
ing a dozen roses for a girl that never loved him for
who he truly was. After her mind left her on a park
bench, she was left to wander the earth in a frumpy
little dress, poor, homeless and never to find true love.
I bet she wishes she had forwarded the e-mail. Don't
let it happen to you!
3.Lists: I gotta tell ya, there are just way too many
top 10 lists circulating over e-mail. I got one the other
day about Pacey's top 10 best comebacks. I can't tell
you how many friends I have made by using that as an
ice breaker. No waityes I can. None.
4.The ones I get most frequently on my Hotmail
address (which I rarely check) are the ones with the
subject lines that read, "I forgot to tell you" or "You
never write anymore Of course, one would suspect
that this e-mail would be from a close friend or at least
an associate. Not many people, however, would sus- '
pect this note to be from Sheila, the hot, 18-year-old
beach bunny with brand new implants and a scorch-
ing case of nymphomania. But at least these emails are
educational. Did you know that the word "fist" is also
a verb?
There are variations of these, of course, but most of j
them are pretty much the same. If you are the one send-
ing me all this junk, I want you to know that I have
sent you the "Ramblin' Man" virus. You should be get �
ting it any minute. Now, if you you'll excuse me, I have
to see what my friend Sheila is up to.

FEATURES BRIEFS
Looney Tunes we grew up with
DaffyDuck
Daffy is one of the only major
Warner Brothers cartoons who actu-
ally has seniority over the famous
Bugs Bunny, although he may not re-
ceive as much recognition. Daffy
made his film debut in the 1937 "Per-
cuss Duck Hunt three years before
Bugs was even created. Daffy was created by anima-
tion director Frederick Bean Avery, who thought it
would be funny to have one of "nature's own" turn
the table on his oppressor a duck who is not easily
scared by someone pointing a gun at him. What
makes Daffy unforgettable is Bob Oampett's film,
The Daffy Doc which portrays Daffy in his wild,
hysterical form.
0
Porky Pig
Porcine "Porky" Pig was one of the only
original Warner Brothers cartoons to have staying
power. After starring in the 1935 film "I Haven't
Got a Hat doors began to open for this mild-
mannered pig. Animator Friz Freleng got his
inspiration for the character from two of his
childhood playmates�a kid nicknamed Piggy and
his younger brother, Porky. Freleng had always
wanted to do a strip featuring two children with
these names, but since animation involved only
animals during this time, he created Porky Pig.
Mel Blanc took over as the voice of Porky, and
gave him a stutter which offered a comedic spin. Due
to his poking fun of a disability, rumors of attempts
to retire Porky early on did circulate, but no actual
documentation exists that can prove this.
Bugs Bunny
Although this "wascally wabbit"
wasn't the Warner Brothers Studio's first
major star, he definitely was the one
who made a name for WB studios, as it
was named number one in short-term
animation. Bugs also won over viewers as he topped
many of popularity polls of the '40s, '50s and '60s.
It was through the collaborative efforts of J.B.
"Bugs" Hardaway, Charles M. Jones and Robert
Clampett that the Bugs" phenomenon was created.
Some consider Bugs' ability to create a strong
personality that can disappear, then come back and
still be recognizable and entertaining to be their great-
est achievement.
Tasmanian Devil
The Tasmanian Devil (Taz to his I
friends), has been described as an animal
short on brains and long on hunger. Taz
remained one of the most colorful foes of Bugs Bunny,
and occasionally Daffy Duck, in the 1950s.
As the youngest of all of the Looney Tunes char-
acters, Taz debuted in 1954's "Devil May Hare Soon
after its release, the character was banned by the pro-
ducer of the cartoons, Eddie Selzer.
Jack L. Warner, head of all production at WB,
began inquiring about the lack of appearances made
by Taz. With that, the character was brought back
for a few more efforts in the late '50s and early '60s.
When Mel Blanc was approached to do Taz's voice,
he asked what a Tasmanian devil sounded like. Since
no one had ever actually heard one, Blanc chose to
improvise with a gurgling sound�transcribed for one
short "eccawchkupkekupke"�which is now consid-
ered "Taz Speak
Tweety Bird II Bi
Otherwise known as Tweety or
Tweety Bird, this precious little canary
has no problem taking care of himself,
especially since he is the target of
Sylvester the Cat. Tweety usually benefits from the
intercessions of his caretaker, Granny, or by the bull-
flogs that reside in his neighborhood.
; Bob Clampett created Tweety (originally called
Orson) in fond memory of his past fascinations with
baby birds. Clampett gave him a baby lisp for a voice,
&long with a head proportioned like a baby's and a
temperament many say was borrowed from the Red
Skelton character of Junior, "the Mean Whiddle Kid
Tweefys debut in 1942's "A Tale of Two Kitties
shows he is no helpless little orphan as he protects
himself with the use of gasoline, hand grenades, dy-
namite and clubs.
� Sylvester
Sylvester is considered one of the
p most versatile characters of the
� jfl Warner Brothers Studios because of
P53 his ability to morph from timid and
vulnerable to a father figure, to a
cunning and evil feline.
Friz Freleng and his staff designed Sylvester for a
1945 piece entitled "Life with Feathers Freleng
wanted Sylvester to appear clown-like by giving him
a big red nose and a low crotch (giving the effect of
baggy pants). Mel Blanc provided the "say it, but don't
spray it" voice for Sylvester which was quite similar
to Daffy's.
Elmer J. Fudd
Well known as Bugs' arch nem-
esis, Elmer has had a long-cunning
career playing journeyman, stooge,
dupe and second banana to that
"wascally wabbit Fudd's character developed in "A
Wild Hare and not many changes were made to
his original appearance.
Road Runner
Road Runner is the constant
prey of Wile E. Coyote, and al-
though he never speaks (well, be-
sides the occasional sign), he seems
to have a knack for startling others
quietly from behind and abruptly
giving his famous "beep-beep
Bibliotherapy: beneficial or bull?
wSBvV.tec.ei
Act of reading may
prove self-therapeutic
Dorcas A. Brule
STAFF WRITER
Bibliotherapy isn't just another one of those catch
phrases derived from the self-help craze of the '90s.
The term has actually been around since the advent of
books, and now�in the midst's of America's self-help
craze�bibliotherapy is gaining more notice.
The initial idea that the word bibliotherapy invokes
can be quite a misnomer since the term doesn't mean
a therapeutic happiness derived from simply reading a
book. At its core, bibliotherapy is the use of books as a
kind of therapy, but what is often misunderstood is
that it involves mainly the use of self-help books as a
kind of independent therapy.
Jacqueline Stanley, who supports this type of bib-
liotherapy, is the author of the first non-academic Bbok
Caroline Healy, medical school student, browses the stack
for a relaxing book, (photo by Garrett McMillian)
dealing with bibliotherapy, Reading to Heal. Her book'
is a guide that shows how one can pick out self-help
books and use them as a form of self-therapy.
Some skeptics question its use and are wary of ne-
gating the power of traditional therapies. �,
"I think books can be a great part of the healing
process said ECU graduate student Mary Pierce
"When you find something that you can relate to in a
book, it makes a world of difference But, I don't think
books are the complete solution Healing takes time.
and love, too J
Some believe that the best way to perform biblio- �
therapy is through reading fiction, since fiction allows
the reader to speak about their emotions through a
character, rather than directly having to reference them-
selves. In a sense, the non-clinical bibliotherapy can ;
be defined as therapeutic happiness derived from sim
ply reading a book. This is what many people perceive!

Move over. Tom Cruise. You

The 13th Warrior battles boredom
Legendary plot dampened
mediocre characters
Susan Wright
FEATURES EDITOR
If you've been waiting eagerly for The 13th Warrior
to come out on video, don't waste your hard-earned
money renting it.
Braveheart did the gritty warrior with a passionate
heart and a quick mind fighting against unreal odds
well. The 13th Warrior on the other hand, tries, yet all
of the characters are lukewarm and uninteresting. Nor-
mally a duel or a macho I'm-better-than-you scene has
the audience rooting for one character or another. Here,
however, this was just another step in the dull trek to
the end of the movie.
Hrothgar, the king of the Danes, has sent messages
for help to warriors all over the barbaric world, since
beasts of unnatural strength and stamina have ravished
his kingdom. The communal mead hall is the place
where warriors celebrate their victories as well as plan
new strategies, and where these beasts do most of their
killing. In this town, there are no men between the
ages of 15 and 50 since most died attempting to kill
the beasts.
The plot focuses on a group of 12 Northmen and
one Arab (Antonio Banderas), exiled from his country
for loving a beautiful woman who was already taken.
A prophet says one of the 13 warriors to go must not
be a Northman, and so the others abduct him and head
out to battle the beasts.
The plot runs parallel to the first part of the classic
"Beowulf the legend of the great battle between the
Great warrior and Grendel, the beast.
It seems that a plot based on a legend that has en-
dured for hundreds of years and has been read, heard
and treasured by so many would readily lend itself to
an amazing screenplay, yet this is not the case. There is
nothing amazing about The 13th Warrior, except for
the fact that a great deal of people have paid money to
see it.
Banderas is the token Arab with a name 30 syllables
long. He struggles to learn the language and to become
a warrior. It was unbelievable that he suddenly fit in
and became one of the group as soon as he learned
their language by listening alone.
This movie lacks the special effects, characteriza-
tion and strong story line that make a gothic movie
worth watching. To me, any movie that makes a col-
lege student turn off a video he or she has paid hard-
earned money for can be considered a truly terrible
waste of time. The 13th Warrior made it to one hour
with me, and then went back into the box from whence
it came.

Ask Marjorie
Dear Marjorie,
I was at the gym the other day working out,
and I heard all of this grunting, as if someone
was in tremendous pain. I turned around, and
there was this guy lifting weights. I think he
was straining way too hard. Is it natural for
someone to grunt and turn beet red if all they're
doing is lifting weights?
�Straining at the SRC
Dear Straining,
I think all of us have seen those guys whose
veins on their forehead look as if they'd pop
out if one more weight were added to their bar.
Personally, I know a perfect gym that should
be built especially for these individuals:
Grunter's Gym. Some men might find this
grunting a necessity, but I don't think so. It's
caused by testosterone overflow. The gym at-
mosphere should be one of fun and concen-
tration, not of grunting and animalistic noises.
Dear Marjorie,
My boyfriend is one of the most normal
guys you'd ever meet outside the bedroom. But,
once the door closes he is a totally different
man. He does this thing where he strangles
himself when we are together. He says it makes
the experience better. My question is, is this
dangerous and are there other people out there
like him?
�Bewildered in Belk
Dear Bewildered,
Your man is not alone in his strange urges. '
This behavior is known as erotic strangulation,
and some people use it as a way of exciting
themselves andor making their sexual experi-
ences more intense. Erotic strangulation is very
dangerous. It has caused people to pass out and,
in some cases, it has proved fatal. If you care
about him, try to find new ways to sate his de-
sires. Definitely discourage him from this dance
with death; you could lose an interesting mate.
To ask Marjorie a question, send your problems
and concerns to features@studentmedia. ecu.edu.

week for two weeks. In this time period, they learn how
to make drinks, become acquainted with the different
alcohols that go into each drink and are taught how to
serve and handle the popular adult beverages.
Not everyone who attends these classes are aspir-
ing bartenders.
"Approximately 30 percent of my students take the
class just to learn about drinks and to entertain at
home Haithcock said.
After the two-week session is completed, students
must take a written test by the American Bartender's
Association in order to be a licensed mixologist.
According to Isles, this test includes questions on
how to mix drinks and what alcohols go into each.
From there, one must pass Responsible Alcohol Sales
Education, or the RASE test, which is provided by the
Alcohol Law Enforcement (ALE). The test goes over how
to cut off an intoxicated person's alcoholic supply with-
out upsetting them and how to check IDs.
Many people choose to become involved in this
field because of the "big money" one can make. De-
pending on location and how business is per evening,
some bartenders can rake in a sizable amount of money.
"Some people can make $30 in tips on some nights
and then $300 on another Haithcock said. "It just
depends where you are
According to ECU alumnus, Jenny Inlow, bartend-
ers don't receive enough money for what they do.
"I think bartenders do a lot of work and don't make
enough money Inlow said. "It irritates me to see
people not tip their bartender. They are helping you
have a good time

mixology, contact Stuart Haithcock at the East Caro-
lina School of Bartending at 752-1115.

State suspends license of doctor
NEW YORK (AP)�Almost five
months after an obstetrician carved
his initials in apatient's abdomen,
the state removed his license, fined
the hospital $14,000 for seven vio-
lations and required that the hos-
pital make changes in its reporting
procedures.
The state Department of
Health's actions were announced
Thursday following an investigation
into the hospital's conduct sur-
rounding the Sept. 7,1999, incident
in which Dr. Allan Zarkin carved the
letters "A" and "Z" into 31-year-old
Liana Gedz, whose baby he had just
delivered by Caesarian section.
The investigation was com-
pleted Thursday.
Commissioner Antonia C.
Novello said the delay was due in
part to inadequate reporting by Beth
Israel Medical Center and to rules
requiring an in-depth investigation
before action can be taken.
"The state Health Department
has now obtained the permanent
surrender of Dr. Allan Zarkin's li-
cense'to practice the art of medi-
cine. Dr. Zarkin signed the surren-
der order yesterday and the chair-
man of the board for professional
medical conduct signed it today
Novello told reporters. "It is my
hope that Dr. Zarkin will not prac-
tice medicine in the state of New
York ever again
"The failure of Beth Israel was
not reporting the incident as re-
quired she said. "We found that
there were clear signs before the
incident that Dr. Zarkin's behav-
ior was totally inappropriate
There were many moments in the
system when this could have been
halted
A year before the incident,
nurses and physicians at the hos-
pital reported incidents in which
Zarkin, 61, "screamed" at staff
members and the fathers of new-
borns and pulled the arms of new.
born babies, she said.

Men's basketball team falls to JMU
Dukes come back from
10-point deficit in second half
Susanne Milenkevich
SENIOR WRITER
ECU'S basketball team dropped to 9-12, 4-6 in CAA
action, as they lost 62-55 to visiting James Madison
University (14-6, 8-2 CAA), Saturday.
The Dukes opened the game with a 15-6 run in the
first five minutes bvt the Pirates responded with a 16-1
run to put them up 24-16.
"They really challenged us said ECU center Alphons
van Ierland. "They really came after us
ECU extended their lead to 10 points at the half as
they entered the locker room with a 33-23 lead. The
Pirates shot 46.4 percent in the first 20 minutes while
JMU hit only 23 percent. The second half was a differ-
ent story as ECU connected on only 32.1' percent of its
field goals as the Dukes improved to 46.2 percent.
JMU came out of the locker room ready to run as
they went on a five minute 14-4 run to tie the game at
37 a piece.
"We have had trouble keeping leads all year said
Bill Herrion, first-year head coach. "They played like the
number one team in the league. They turned it on when
they had to and they made plays when they had to
JMU's Rob Strickland and Jabari Outtz teamed up to
score 21 points after the half while the ECU squad scored
only 22 points in the second half.
"They came out with a lot of intensity in the second
half Herrion said. "We did not. I have told our kids all
year long that the most important minutes of the game
are the first five of the second half and they beat us
there today
The Pirate duo of van Ierland and David Taylor scored
,17 points in the first half but were held to a mere four
points in the second half.
"We need to come out with the same intensity we
know the other team will come out with said ECU's David Taylor.
The Dukes hit seven free throws in the final two minutes of the game
to gj,ve them a 62-55 win over the Pirates. ECU will return to the court

Pirates gear up for baseball season
Most of team
talent returns
Jason Adzigian
STAFF WRITER
Pirate baseball is ready to get un-
derway for the 2000 season. Man-
aged by 1999 CAA Coach of the
Year, Keith LeClair, the team looks
to earn their second conference title
in as many years. ,
Last season the Pirates finished
14-6 in the conference, and 46-16
overall, earning them their first ever
national ranking. They battled four
teams ranked in the top 25 with the
biggest victory coming in a 6-5 win
over third ranked Miami. The Pirates
put together an impressive 11 game
winning streak with wins over
Clemson and 19th ranked Wake For-
est.
In the CAA tournament, in its
last year in Kinston, the Pirates de-
feated fifth seed Old Dominion en
route to earning a number one seed
in Baton Rouge, La. for the NCAA
Regional Tournament. The Pirates
ended their outstanding season by
dropping two games to LSU.
This year's non-conference
schedule looks to be just as tough,
as the Pirates match up against three
teams ranked in the top 25, Wake
Forest, Clemson and South Caro-
lina. They also face Duke and
Purdue. The rivalry games for ECU
will be Feb. 11 vs. N.C. State and
April 18 vs. UNC, both of which the
Pirates split games with last season.
The Pirates will also face the
tough CAA schedule.
"There are four or five teams that
will battle this year with no team
having a real advantage LeClair
said.
The Pirates' pitching staff has
only four returners, of which only
junior Foye Minton is a starter. Last
season, Minton went 9-5 pitching
104.2 innings, striking out 89 while
walking an impressively low 20. He
also threw a no-hitter vs. N.C. State,
the first in l'O years for the Pirates.
The Pirates bring in eight
freshmen.
"Getting them confi-
dence early is crucial
LeClair said. "I like the
talent although un-
proven in game situa
tions they are still very
capable of success this
season
The only change
for the Pirate de-
fense is the absence
of Steve Salargo.
The team will rely
on outfielder
James Molinari,
second
baseman Nick
Sen na bel
and
catcher
cliff p
Godwin
to lead the way for the
young team.
Around the infield the
Pirates are among the best.
Sophomore first baseman

62 games for the Pirates and
won rookie of the year honors
in 1999, returns. As does CAA
Defensive Player of the Year,
Schnabel. Shortstop Lee
Deifino started 59 games and
was selected by Baseball
America to the Ail-American and
All-Freshman second teams.
Deifino and Schnabel are. the
most heralded middle infielders in
the CAA, which can account for the
added pressure.
"It's nice to hear, and build off
of it, but we have a job to do on
the field Schnabel said.
"I try not to let that get in
the way, but I have learned a

with recruiting and hitting. Tommy!
Eason returns for his third year to!
help instruct the young pitching
staff. Also returning for his third
year on the coaching staff is George
Whitfield to work with the infield-
ers. LeClair will need to remain pa-
tient with so many young players
and so little experience, but the vet-
erans should serve as a nucleus for
the squad. The newcomers, how-
ever, are doing their part.
"The freshmen are real gutsy,
and work real hard. Everyone gets;
along well both on and off the-
field Defino said.
The team will rely on trial and!
error for the beginning part of the
season, while never loosing focus on

an outstanding victory over Ameri-

ECU's women's basketball team, now
at 5-4 in conference play and 10-10

Never allowing American to take
a lead, ECU shot 52.2 percent in
comparison to American's meek 28
percent from the floor. The Pirates
managed to maintain an 11-point
lead up until the 10th minute. A
score of 27-18 allowed the Pirates

lead.

The ECU men's and women's
track teams traveled to a pair of meets
this weekend. First, they headed to
New York City to the Millrose Games
in Madison Square Garden on Friday,
then they stopped at George Mason
University in Fairfax, Va. for the Pa-
triot Games.
In New York the distance-medley
squad of Stu Will, Terry Speller, Brian
Beil and Justin England placed sec-
ond to the team from Columbia Uni-
versity.
"It was a great experience said
Len Klepack, men's cross country
coach. "They were among the great-
est runners in the world. Running
in Madison Square Garden, in front
of 18,000 people was great
The runners then rode in a van
overnight to Fairfax, Va. for the Pa-
triot Games. They also finished sec-
ond in Virginia, behind Villanova.
At the Patriot Games the team's
time of 10:13.20 qualified them for
the IC4A Indoor Championships.
"They handled themselves very
well Klepack said. "They knew
they had to get rest. They slept in
the van and studied in the van, their
time management was great
At George Mason, the 4x400-
medly turned in their fastest time
of the year.
Despite being stuck in lane one,
the team of Lawrence Ward, Darrick
Ingram, James Alexander and
Damon Davis finished first in a time
of 3:1.48. The Pirates were paced by
Davis who ran a 47.7 anchor leg to
blow past St. Augustine's.
"Were we're stuck in lane one

coach. "It was very hard to run fast
On the women's side, the Lady
Pirates notched two first place fin-
ishes and an ECAC qualifying mark.
"I thought we had a fantastic
meet said women's Head Coach
Matt Munson. "I was very pleased
with the results
Rasheca Barrow took home first
place in the 60-meters. Her time of
7.58 set a new ECU record, break-
ing her own of 7.61.
Junior Margaret Clayton took
home first place in the weight throw
with a toss of 55' 34 Clayton's
throw is also a personal best. Fresh-
man Becky Post and junior Crystal
Frye notched third place finishes in
the pole vault and the shot put, re-
spectively.
Two other ECU records fell at
George Mason. In the 800-meters,
Kay Livick placed sixth in 2:16.51,
a new school record.
The distance-medley relay squad
just missed an ECAC qualifying
mark. Their time of 3:53.53 was
good enough for third place, and a
new school record.
Also scoring a third place was
the 4x400-meter relay. The team
also qualified for the ECAC.
At George Mason, ECU's fresh-
men shined. Shirena James too
home fifth in the 200-meters. She
was followed by Demiko Picott who "
placed ninth. Both turned in per-
sonal best times. In the high jump,
Colleen McGinn and Kelli Post
placed fifth and sixth, respectively.
"The freshmen have really done

Rodman Signs With Mavericks
J
www.tec.ecu
plug into the source.
DALLAS (AP)�In the last 10
months, Dennis Rodman has been
arrested three times and added sev-
eral more tattoos and piercings to
his walking collection.
Now he's doing something re-
ally wacky�joining the Dallas
Mavericks.
Rodman ended a long court-
ship with his hometown team
Thursday by signing a contract
that'll pay him about $465,000 for
the rest of the season.
The saga will draw out even
longer, though, because he's taking
another week to get into playing
shape. Rodman won't make his
Mavericks debut until Wednesday
at Reunion Arena against Seattle.
Soon-to-be owner Mark Cuban
said he's not sure whether Rodman
will travel with the team for road
games Saturday against the Los An-
geles Clippers and Sunday against
the Vancouver Grizzlies.
But Cuban is sure Rodman won't
be going to the Pro Bowl, as he'd
threatened last week while in At-
lanta for the Super Bowl.
"If anything, I might take him
to LA just to get him with his trainer
because he's getting that serious
said Cuban, who personally pursued
the NBA's most eligible free agent
since shortly after agreeing to buy
the team in early January.
The 38-year-old forward skipped
Dallas' 106-96 victory over Char-
lotte on Thursday night. He may
have been too tired to do anything
after two-a-day workouts with a
trainer.
Or maybe he was too busy get-
ting comfy in his new residence, the
4,000-square-foot guest house to
Cuban's mansion.
The billionaire co-founder of
broadcast.com didn't become
Rodman's landlord to keep tabs on
him. Cuban just wants to make
Rodman's stay in Dallas as comfort-
able as possible.
"I'm not going to try to stop
Dennis from being Dennis Cuban
said. "I'm not going to say, 'Ooh,
Dennis, don't go out and party.
Ooh, Dennis, you're talking to the
wrong girls No. Dennis, go out and
have fun � be Dennis.
"Dennis has managed to be Den-
nis and be very successful on the
court for a long time
Cuban said there also were prac-
tical considerations.
"I've got big fences he said.
"Everywhere he goes, he creates a
scene, so I wanted to protect him
from that so he can concentrate and
focus
Rodman will pay Cuban $3,000
rent per month because league rules
force the owner to charge the going
rate. Reserve Greg Buckner is giving
up $15 a day from his paycheck to
reimburse his boss for the use of a
car.
But Cuban is making some spe-
cial concessions for Rodman, such
as allowing him to ride a stationary
bike instead of practicing and let-
ting him arrive at games later than
his teammates.

The Dinner Game (PG-13)
Each week, Pierre and his friends organize
what is called "un doner de cons Everyone
brings the dumbest guy he could find as a
guest. Pierre thinks his champ - Francois
hPignon - will steal the show.
The Story off Us (R)
Bruce Willis and Michelle Pfeiffer team up for
a romantic comedy that asks the question:
Can a marriage survive 15 years of
marriage? The action turns on the characters
of Ben and Katie Jordan who, while making
the painful decision to separate, wrestle with
the paradox that the qualities which made
them fall in love in the first place are now the
very things pulling them apart.
