Black History Month
Events scheduled to educate students
UNDA DOHERTY
STAFF WRITER
The Ledonia Wright Cultural Center and other ECU organizations
are hosting a series of events this month in honor of Black History
Month.
Lathan Turner, director of the Ledonia Wright Cultural Center,
said it is important for students to attend events so they are able to
expand their knowledge and eliminate any misconceptions or preju-
dices they may have of a particular culture.
"This February will give everyone an opportunity to learn more,
be exposed to the creativeness and major achievements in African
American history said Turner.
Students have shown interest in attending various events and
learning about different topics.
"I am excited to attend the various programs because I would like
to learn more about the contributions that African Americans have
made throughout history said Erin Barnette, senior communica-
tion major.
Barnette said it is necessary to get as many people as possible, both
young and old, involved in order to increase society's knowledge of
diversity and break down any stereotypes people may have for one
another.
"We also wanted to highlight African American women Turner
said.
The center is giving the youth in the community an opportunity
to get involved along with ECU students. High school students from
Pitt County have been invited to Mendenhall Student Center Great
Rooms Feb. 28 at 7 p.m. for a poetry contest titled, "Poetic Expres-
sions: Readings, Rhymes, Rhythm
These events are provided to help everyone, not just certain ethnic-
ities, learn by introducing different views and ideas, striving to create
multiculturalism bringing different groups of people together.
Turner said during his time at ECU, he has found a lack of cultural
awareness, appreciation and participation to learn about others.
Students come to ECU with different backgrounds and conflict-
ing views causing conflicts with diversity on campus. Turner said the
"root cause is education or lack thereof
Joe Thompson, junior accounting major, said he has noticed a
problem with diversity issues on campus.
"I see that the majority of the minorities on campus tend to stick
with each other and rarely do you see diverse groups of people stand-
ing together said Thompson.
This is one reason why the Ledonia Wright Cultural Center strives
to educate students in order to increase awareness and create a better
understanding of diversity.
"The center provides an opportunity to share with those that are
willing to learn - after all learning is the whole reason for being in
college Turner said.

Nursing students wait tables to benefit tsunami victims
Money donated to
help with relief effort
MICHAEL HARRINGTON
SENIOR WRITER
Students from the ECU
School of Nursing waited tables
Jan. 30 at Golden Corral in
Greenville and donated money
earned from tips toward the
tsunami relief effort.
Ten volunteers from the
school of nursing performed
basic employee tasks such as
serving customers, busing tables
and opening doors at the Sunday
breakfast buffet, hoping their
hard work would translate into
dollars that would help those
affected by the tsunami disaster.
Kathryn Hord, ECU nurs-
ing major who volunteered at
Sunday's fundraiser, said this
charitable work fits with the mis-
sion of nurses.
"Even though there are
people sick far away, nurses
always give help said Hord.
"This event gives us the
opportunity to show that we can
care in other ways
The money raised by the
event is going to the Cooperative
for Assistance and Relief Every-
where, a group recommended by
the International Conference of
Nurses on their list of reputable
tsunami relief groups.
Ten nursing students met at Golden Corral to serve their customers.
Michael Raper, senior ECU in this region since 1950 and they
nursing major who organized the
event, said the choice of CARE
among other recommended relief
agencies was due to a combina-
tion of their 92 percent efficiency
rate with donated dollars and
their background.
"CARE has been established
are not religious or political
said Raper.
Once the money reaches
CARE, it will be spent to provide
food, shelter and medical support
for those affected by the tsunami.
Raper said the tsunami relief
effort is a long-term effort despite

Bush calls
election a
success
WASHINGTON (AP) � Presi-
dent Bush called the Iraqi elec-
tion a resounding success and
promised that the United States
will help Iraqis fight continuing
insurgency as they build a demo-
cratic government.
"There's more distance to
travel on the road to democracy
Bush said Sunday, four hours
after the polls closed. "Yet Iraqis
are proving they're equal to the
challenge
The president mentioned that
some were killed while voting,
but he focused his brief remarks
on the success for Iraq and its
citizens. He told of one voter who
lost a leg in a terrorist attack last
year but still made it to the polls
to vote for peace.
"The world is hearing the
voice of freedom from the center
of the Middle East Bush said.
"In great numbers, and under
great risk, Iraqis have shown their
commitment to democracy
He called the leaders of
three key U.S. allies in the
Middle East - King Abdullah of
Jordan, Crown Prince Abdul-
lah of Saudi Arabia and Presi-
dent Hosni Mubarak of Egypt
- Sunday afternoon to talk about
building on the Iraqi election
and to support democracy among
the Palestinians.
Insurgents in Iraq struck
polling stations with a string of
suicide bombings and mortar vol-
leys, killing more than 40 people,
including nine suicide bombers.
Bush also said he mourned the
loss of U.S. and British forces on
election day, including troops
killed when a British military
transport plane crashed.
"Terrorists and insurgents will
continue to wage their war against
democracy, and we will support
the Iraqi people in their fight
against them Bush said. "We
will continue training Iraqi secu-
rity forces so this rising democ-
racy can eventually take respon-
sibility for its own security
Bush did net take questions
from reporters or mention any
military withdrawal.
L. Paul Bremer, the
former U.S. civilian administra-
tor in Iraq, said Monday the
elections were "a great victory
for the Iraqi people, for democ-
racy and for the president's
message of freedom He said
that while the insurgents, "since
they are antidemocratic, won't
respect the results of these demo-
cratic elections violence was
likely to continue.
"But gradually they're going
to lose Bremer said on NBC's
"Today" show. "The balance of
power is towards democracy now
in Iraq
Congressional Democrats,
meanwhile, were stepping up
their calls for an exit strategy in
Iraq. Senate Democratic Leader
Harry Reid of Nevada said in
remarks prepared for delivery
Monday that Bush "needs to spell
out a real and understandable
plan for the unfinished work
ahead" in Iraq.
"Most of all, we need an exit
strategy so that we know what
victory is and how we can get
there - so that we know what we
need to do and so that we know
when the job is done
In a statement, Sen. Edward
M. Kennedy, D-Mass, said Bush
"must look beyond the election"
and start bringing troops home.
"The best way to demonstrate
to the Iraqi people that we have
no long-term designs on their
country is for the administration
to withdraw some troops now"
and negotiate further withdraw-
als, Kennedy added.
On Sunday, Secretary of State
Condoleezza Rice would not say
whether U.S. forces would leave
the country in great numbers
after the vote. She said the United
States would discuss the contin-
ued need for outside security
forces with the newly elected
Iraqi government.

Drunk driving
convictions up across NC
CHARLOTTE, NC - Drunk driving
convictions have risen sharply across
the state following newspaper reports
that judges were letting thousands of
drivers off easy.
Across North Carolina, drunk driving
conviction rates increased from 59
percent in the last half of 2003 to 63
percent a year later. The rates in some
of the state's most lenient counties
have more than doubled since last
summer, The Charlotte Observer
reported on Sunday.
The newspaper last summer reported
that nearly all DW1 suspects who went
to trial in some counties were found
guilty, while about nine-in-10 in other
counties were acquitted.
NC Supreme Court Chief Justice I.
Beverly Lake Jr. wrote a memo to
the state's District Court judges in
September, citing the stories and
suggesting some judges have been
requiring prosecutors to present more
proof than the law requires.
"If that is true, we should not condone
it Lake wrote. "And we should
persuade our colleagues not to do it
Mecklenburg County's conviction rate
rose from 57 percent in late 2003 to
75 percent a year later. In Gaston
County, the rate for all DWI trials rose
from 50 percent to 66 percent.
Carteret, Craven and Pamlico
counties still have the state's lowest
conviction rates, but they have more
than doubled, from 12 percent to 26
percent.
Rates in Wake County rose from 17
percent to 39 percent. The county
last year added a DWI court, where
a focus on drunk driving cases has
resulted In more convictions.

and died almost immediately from a
head injury.
The family moved into the home just
two weeks ago, said her husband,

said Sunday. "She loved life and her
children and whenever she passed
away she was doing what she loved
- having fun with the kids
He said as snow fell Saturday, he was

the time I got down to her. She just

National
Jury selection process
to begin In Jackson case
SANTA MARIA, Calif. - As Michael
Jackson's child molestation case
headed to trial Monday, his parents
spoke out in his defense, saying the
pop star's young accuser was after
his money.
"I know my son, and this is
ridiculous his mother, Katherine
Jackson, said in an interview
broadcast on CBS' "The Early Show"
hours before jury selection was set
to begin Monday. She said people
who believe her son is guilty "don't
know him
Jackson's father, Joe Jackson, said
his son was beloved around the
world but had trouble in the United
States because of racism. He said the
accuser's motives were clear - "It's
about money
Superior Court Judge Rodney Melville
summoned 300 people to court
for the first round of jury selection
Monday. Another 300 are to follow on
Tuesday, with a final 150 scheduled to
arrive on Wednesday. From that pool,
the judge hopes to find 12 jurors and
eight alternates.
Jackson, 46, is charged with molesting
a cancer patient after plying him with
alcohol. Early Sunday, Jackson issued
a court-approved video statement on
his Web site, predicting he would be
acquitted.
"Please keep an open mind and let
me have my day in court Jackson
said, looking directly into the camera.
"I deserve a fair trial like every other
American citizen. I will be acquitted
and vindicated when the truth is told
On Monday, Jackson spokeswoman
Raymone K. Bain said the pop
star's "spirits are great and
show down rumors that he had
been suicidal.
Victims to face
former crematory operator
LaFAYETTE, Ga. - Authorities
discovered a ghastly scene in February
2002 after receiving an anonymous tip
about Tri-State Crematory: Instead of
performing cremations, the operator
had left bodies to decay around the
property.
Unsuspecting clients later learned
that former operator Ray Brent Marsh
dumped more than 330 corpses
around the facility in Noble, and gave
them cement dust instead of the
ashes of their loved ones.
Marsh, who has pleaded guilty, was
expected to appear In court for a
sentencing hearing Monday, and
victims' relatives hope to find out
why he did it.
"There's been a lot of emotion in
this case District Attorney Herbert
Franklin said. "Naturally, there's going
to be emotion and that's part of the
victim impact statements
Though Marsh and his family will
be given a chance to speak at the
hearing, defense lawyei; McCracken
Poston declined to say if they will.
About 30 victims' relatives also were
expected to testify, but that number
could grow. The prosecutor sent 500
letters to victims' families inviting
them to appear at the hearing.
No time limit for their statements
was given, so the hearing may be
continued to Tuesday.

Girt shot by tank fire In Palestine
GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip - A 10-year-
old Palestinian girl was shot and
killed Monday by Israeli tank fire at a
United Nations school in a southern
Gaza Strip refugee camp, Palestinian
officials said.
The Israeli army said it did not know of
any shootings in the area of the Rafah
refugee camp where the girl was
killed but said it would investigate
In coordination with Palestinian
officials.
U.N. officials said Norhan Deeb was
hit in the head as she and other
pupils lined up in the schoolyard
for afternoon assembly. A second
girl was wounded in the incident,
they said.
Israeli troops and Palestinian gunmen
frequently exchange fire in Rafah
camp on the Gaza-Egypt border.
Paul McCann, a spokesman for the
U.N. Relief and Works Agency, which
administers the school, could not
say definitely who was responsible
for shooting.
But a statement by the agency said
firing was heard from the Israeli-
controlled border zone.
"UNRWA has repeatedly protested the
Israeli military's indiscriminate firing
into civilian areas in the occupied
Palestinian territory the statement said.
It said the school, 800 yards from the
border, has been hit "on numerous
occasions" during four years of
fighting. This is the first time the shots
have had tragic consequences
The incident was the second shooting
in the area in two days, testing an
informal cease-fire between Israel
and Palestinian militants. On Sunday,
Israeli troops killed a 65-year-old man
who entered an unauthorized area
near an army post.
British plane crash In
Iraq leaves 10 missing
LONDON (AP) - Britain's government
said Monday that 10 of its military
personnel were missing and
presumed dead following the
downing of a military transport plane
north of Baghdad on Iraq's election
day. An Iraqi militant group claimed
responsibility for shooting down the
plane in an Internet statement.
If the deaths are confirmed, it would
be the biggest single loss of British
lives since the start of the Iraq war. The
previous highest number was eight.
In a statement on an Islamic Web site,
Ansar al-lslam claimed its fighters
tracked the aircraft, "which was
flying at a low altitude, and fired an
anti-tank missile at it The plane was
flying from Baghdad to the town of
Balad, where the U.S. military has
an air base.
"Thanks be to God, the plane was
downed and a huge fire and black
clouds of smoke were seen rising
from the location of the crash said
the statement posted Sunday.
A spokesman for Britain's Ministry of
Defense said he could not confirm
Ansar al-lslam's claim. "People on the
ground are investigating he said on
condition of andnymity.
British Defense Secretary Geoff
Hoon said that nine British air force
personnel and one soldier were
missing and believed killed inthe crash.
Capt. David Orwin, a British military
spokesman in the southern Iraqi city
of Basra, told the Press Association
news agency that the crash site had
been secured by U.S. and British
forces.
A senior U.S. military officer in Iraq
said the Royal Air Force Hercules
C-130 aircraft crashed 25 miles
northwest of Baghdad, adding that
the plane's wreckage was scattered
over a large area. The Ministry of
Defense in London said the crash
occurred 19 miles northwest of the
Iraqi capital.
Great Decisions speaker discusses the Middle East Nursing
from page A1
Kickasola gave a presentation at Rivers Auditorium Saturday.
Second forum
on global politics
CHRIS MUNIER
STAFF WFIITER
An expert on Middle Eastern
politics and Islam gave a two-hour
presentation Saturday for the
second of eight Great Decisions
lectures in Rivers Auditorium.
Joseph N. Kickasola, professor
of government at Regent Univer-
sity, spoke to attendants of the
forum on what he considered to
be an internal conflict within
Muslims in the Middle East.
"The clash of civilizations
is not so much between the
West and the rest, but more sig-
nificantly the civilization clash is
within Islam said Kickasola.
Kickasola said the source of
the occurring conflicts involves
different interpretations of the
Quran, the Islamic holy text.
Muhammad's messages vary
throughout the text depend-
ing on whether he experienced
peace or was a war happening
and was upset. The terrorists use
Muhammad's angry episodes and
messages as justification for vio-
lence against non-Muslims.
The opposite is true for Mus-
lims who seek democracy. They
use the good verses in the Quran
to trump the bad ones.
Kickasola did not elaborate
on specific countries, but he
did mention places like Iraq and
Afghanistan as being incompat-
ible to secularism at this time. No
matter how liberal Afghanistan
becomes, Islam will still be there
because people cannot function
without its influence.
He said the same is true for
Iraq except there are great divi-
sions among Muslims there.
"Given Iraq's ethnic diversity
in the north (Muslim Kurds),
center (Muslim Sunnis) and
south (Muslim Shiites), it is my
belief that perhaps a confedera-
tion, rather than a federation as
now planned, would be a good
idea for Iraq Kickasola said.
He predicted Iraq would
undergo a phase where it needed
separate entities - similar to the
way the United States was when
each colony had its own estab-
lished religions.
Kickasola said the holy wars
in the Middle East would subside
with the emergence of nation-
states in the region. He cited the
Peace of Westphalia in 1648 as an
example of how a region could
overcome religious differences.
The battles between Protestants
and Catholics in Europe even-
tually ended with the Peace of
Westphalia. Since then, there
have been relatively few holy
wars in Europe. Kickasola pre-
dicts this could happen in the
Middle East too with new sover-
eign states being formed.
Saddam Hussein was what
Kickasola called the weapon of
mass destruction.
He said communists and
Saddam had suppressed Islamic
autonomy and confederation up
until now.
Kickasola emphasized a need
for reform in the Middle East
ahead of security and stability.
He said any change in that region
would take generations, just as
the reform in Europe did after
World War II.
Members of the audience had
a chance to ask questions about
U.S. policy toward the Middle
East. Kickasola was forced to
explain why the U.S. condemns
some brutal regimes but aligns
itself with Saudi Arabia.
He compared our alliance
with Saudi Arabia to U.S. policy
during the Cold War. We did not
care about dictators or tyrants as
long as they opposed the Sovi-
ets. The Saudi monarchs may be
unjust, but they are instrumental
to our Middle East policy.
Kickasola said the Saudi lead-
ers are "bastards" but they are
"our bastards

stemmed from a moment of clar-
ity Raper had while eating at the
restaurant.
"I was having dinner here one
night and the idea just came to
me Raper said.
After a conversation with an
official from Golden Corral, the
fundraiser was scheduled.
Curtis James, operating
partner at Golden Corral, said
these events are common for
the chain and many of the
restaurants host these
fundraisers, known as celebrity
server nights.
The fundraiser group is given
a certain section of the restaurant
to wait on, with their tips and
donations going toward a chari-
table cause.
"We do a lot with the com-
munity to get them involved
said James.
As the event unfolded, both
James and Raper estimated the
students were doing better than
expected.
" People who aren't even sitting
there are donating James said.
Raper said this event is one in a
semester-long effort striving to raise
$50,000 for the tsunami effort.
Once the yveather gets
warmer, Raper said he plans to
organize a car wash and possibly
a doughnut drive to reach their
monetary goal.

Chenoweth promotes
health awareness
AJ WALTON
STAFF WRITER
An ECU professor recently
used his professional knowledge
and expert opinion at the Work-
shop on the Methodology and
Assessment of Worksite Health
Promotions Projects in the Czech
Republic.
David Chenoweth, a profes-
sor and author of several health-
related books, was contacted
about a year ago by Milan Hor-
vath, a retired professor at the
University of Prague. Horvath
had read Chenoweth's book
Evaluation of Worksite Health Pro-
motion and e-mailed Chenoweth
to ask permission to republish the
book In Czech.
Chenoweth didn't hesitate to
contact his publishing company
and give Horvath permission.
"I thought it was an honor
that someone wanted to copy my
book said Chenoweth.
Horvath believed the book
would be affective at promoting
health awareness.
"He's now using the book in a
number of universities and busi-
nesses and it's all in Czech
Chenoweth said.
The Czech Republic, a nation
nestled between Germany and
Poland, is one whose economy is
heavily influenced by manufac-
turing, in particular metallurgy,
machinery, motor vehicles and
armaments.
Chenoweth said that due to
a lack of proper health screening
and technological advances like
that of the United States, many
workers suffer physically under
heavy work environments.
"Here in the United States, a
lot of industries use machines
Chenoweth said.
"In the Czech Republic, what
we used to use 20 years ago,
they're using now
The workshop concentrated
on economic assessment of
health promotion projects. It was
addressed to managers, personnel
department heads and experts in
human resources.
According to Chenoweth, his
advice was well taken.
"There was a lot of affirma-
tion they understood the
concepts of what I was talking
about Chenoweth said.
"They're trying to bring an
awareness to all European coun-
tries that if they're going to
advance economically, they've
got to be productive there's a
relationship between a worker's
health and productivity
After the workshop, Che-
noweth and Horvath met with
Alena Steflova, the Czech Repub-
lic's Minister of Health.
"He Horvath appealed to
her Steflova that he wanted o
get a grant in order to establish
more health-promoted initia-
tives Chenoweth said.
Another book of Chenoweth's
has already been requested,
another workshop is in planning
and Chenoweth has been asked
to return.

Our View
Reading labels prevents
harmful consequences
Though everyone is tired of hearing about
Celebrex and Vioxx being taken off the
market, it seems there is still some gray area
about what really happened. Sometimes the
media portrays things in a light that will help
them create more controversy than is actually
present.
Celebrex and Vioxx are COX-2 inhibitors
that were prescribed for patients with severe
inflammation - whether it is from arthritis or
some other chronic, painful condition that
over the counter medications were just not
cutting the pain of. These drugs significantly
improved the quality of life for patients who
were taking them as directed. The patients, in
most cases, were able to resume their normal
lives because the medications made such a
drastic improvement in their pain manage-
ment.
Why would these medications be taken away
from patients who relied on them to live a
normal, reduced-pain life? They were taken
away because of an old saying, "If one is good,
then two must be better Those who did not
read the warning labels and took too many
Celebrex and Vioxx pills are the reason the
drugs are no longer on the market.
Irresponsible people have impacted the lives
of many who relied on these drugs and are
no longer allowed to take them as prescribed.
Oh, but don't forget that lab rats with cancer
were given overdoses of the two COX-2
inhibitors and they suffered from heart attacks
and blood clots, though the drug information
packet gave these side-effects as a possibil-
ity because the companies themselves had
done tests just like these.
Read the labels on all prescription and non
prescription medications in the medicine
cabinet. The labels are not there for decora-
tion, though the purple ones are pretty, they
are there to give the patient important infor-
mation. If a medication is abused, there will
be consequences. Unfortunately, this time,
the drug companies, not the abusers are the
ones who will have to pay the highest price,
billions of dollars to people who just wouldn't
read the label.

Social security numbers should be protected
Help prevent identity
theft on campus
TONY MCKEE
STAFF WRITER
Well, another week has gone into
the history books, and what a week
it was.
Iraqis participated in larger than
expected numbers in the country's first
free elections in 50 some years. What's
more, the expected wave of violence
never emerged. And no, I am not mar-
ginalizing the deaths that did occur
at the hands of fanatics. 1 am saying
that with all the threats, and gloomy
! predictions of violence it could have
been much worse.
The only real downside to the elec-
- tions was the dismal turnout among the
j Sunni population. Whether through
fear, ignorance or fealty to leaders who
are misleading them, the vast major-
ity did not vote. Even with the threat
of death hanging over them however,
many brave Sunni's did vote.
Those Sunni men and women who
did are, or should be, the major story
about the Iraq elections. They are
perfect examples of what this election
was about. They risked everything for
a chance at democracy. Would you
have?
Another occurrence last week,
while nowhere near as momentous
but still considered very rare (at least
by those who don't know me), was
that I found myself disagreeing with a
Conservative "hot topic
I found out from one of my favorite
liberal-whacko Web sites there was, and
still is, a flap going on about the Uni-
versity of Oregon and their instructions
to one of their employees to remove
a "Support the Troops" magnet from
his vehicle. This decision has been the
target of derision from conservative
pundits far and wide. Some liberals
have even joined the outcry against
the university.
This time, they are wrong.
It took me less than one minute
on Google to discover that the vehicle
in question was a university-owned
maintenance vehicle, not a personal
vehicle. At that point, 1 knew this was
a non-story being blown all out of
proportion.
I have worked for, and around,
many government agencies over the
years and one thing has been absolutely
constant: They do not allow personal
stickers of any type on their vehicles.
It has been that way for as long as I can
remember and it is a policy that I totally
concur with.
The University of Oregon was cor-
rect in their decision.
One other thing happened last
week that bothered me immensely,
and should bother you also, concerns
the safety of your personal information
and identity and how ECU does or does
not safeguard it.
I had to go to the Laupus Medical
Library Web site to access some reserve
material for a class. Naturally, I was
required to register so I could gain
access to what I wanted. No big deal. It
became a big deal however was when
I was instructed to provide my social
security number for identification.
Uh-Uh. A social security number
should never be required asidentification.
I contacted the library about
the issue and was informed because
of federal copyright laws, access
to reserve material is limited to autho-
rized students and staff. Because
of this, the library is tied into ECU's
One Card system, which uses social
security numbers as identification. I
was also told that the server they use
is secure and monitored by qualified
personnel.
Does anyone else see a problem or
three here?
Students and faculty can access
information in Joyner and elsewhere
in the ECU system by using their
Exchange Mail User ID and password.
Joyner has access and links to copy-
righted material also yet they do not
require a social security number to
access it. If an Exchange ID is satisfac-
tory for the rest of ECU, why not for
Laupus?
As for the "secure" servers that are
being used - get serious. How many
times have we heard about banks,
insurance companies, military and
other government systems that have
been hacked and information stolen
despite using "secure" servers just in the
last year? And not to call the integrity
of the system administrators into ques-
tion, but the same question applies.
Also, if they, and their systems, were
so good, how did it happen?
Despite any protestations to the
contrary, Laupus Library cannot guar-
antee the safety of your social security
number. How can they guarantee that
no one will see you enter your number?
How can they guarantee that no one
will see, or hear, your number at the
library when it is looked up for confir-
mation? I low can they guarantee that
no one will hack into their system?
They cannot.
With the ever present danger of
identity theft and the havoc it can
wreak on a person for years, Laupus
Library's requirement that a social
security number be provided is not
only ridiculous, it is unnecessarily
dangerous. It is the equivalent of Rus-
sian roulette. Instead of using bullets
though, they are using your social
security number.
If you agree, contact Laupus Library
or the chancellor and let them know.
In My Opinion
Question of women's math ability is a red herring
(KRT) � At a recent meeting of
social scientists exploring the dearth of
women and minorities in the sciences,
Harvard President Lawrence Sum-
mers posed the provocative question:
Do biological differences equip fewer
women than men with the necessary
high-level mathematical skills to suc-
ceed in these fields? In response to
swift and widespread criticism, he has
since issued a formal apology. Unfor-
tunately, the shadow of the doubt he
raised persists.
At a time when large numbers of
highly qualified women are not encour-
aged to study science and numerous
others who have scaled the daunting
and arduous hurdles required to enter
the disciplines are being driven out,
this question is a dangerous red herring.
Indeed, the question itself distracts
policy-makers from the real problems
facing women in science: the biologi-
cal and physical sciences have been
developed by men, for men, and the
result is a field that alienates women.
First there is the career structure.
At the doctoral level, success in science
requires constant geographic relocation
from the undergraduate to the gradu-
ate institution, onto post doc and then
the first job. Continuous movement
during the period when most young
people are starting families puts female
scientists at a distinct disadvantage
since, in comparison to their male
peers, they are more likely to marry
established professional spouses who
are least mobile just when they need to
be most mobile for their wives. Women
are then faced with the no-win choice:
compromising either their careers or
their marriages.
Second, women are shut out by their
peers. Scientific networks often exclude
women. As my research has shown,
men in graduate science programs are
much more likely than women to be
mentored by senior scientists. Yet while
the mentoring of male students has
been shown to have little effect on a
man's graduation rate, it increases the
probability of graduation for women by
large and significant amounts.
Third, women are put off by the
work itself. Once out of school, women
often lose their passion for work that
is overly narrow and unconnected
to personal, social or political issues.
The academy's lip service to the value
of multi-disciplinary research gives
way to the difficulty in pursuing and
evaluating work done outside of the
disciplines' traditional boundaries.
Women also become frustrated with
confining work roles that have few if
any pathways to increased responsibil-
ity. They become embittered as they
are passed over for promotions as their
male peers step seamlessly into posi-
tions of power.
There are ways to make science
more hospitable to women. Dramatic
improvements in transportation and
communication over the last 40 years
should, for example, make much geo-
graphical relocation unnecessary. And,
while the long hours expected of junior
faculty in research universities may
be an important signal of post-tenure
productivity, they are more difficult
for mothers than fathers because, even
in this highly educated population,
women take on more than two-thirds
of the burden of raising children. In the
21st century, the day-to-day juggling
of children and science is a distraction
that few men ever face. If we are unwill-
ing to restructure the hours spent at
the workplace, we can at least begin
to make greater strides toward sharing
responsibility in the home.
Constantly fighting the stereotype
most recently articulated by Summers
that they are not as scientifically gifted
as their male peers, women feel that
they have to work twice as hard to prove
their worth in a field that continues
to over-value male contribution. They
often hide pregnancies as long as possi-
ble, take minimal maternity leaves, and
continue to work long hours after child
birth even when generous maternity
leaves and tenure clock stoppages are
available. They feel compelled to fight
the subtle discrimination of senior, and
not so senior, scientists who believe
that science and mothering do not mix.
Pirate Rant
Don't you just love getting
packages from home?
1 just wanted to share my
excitement that the Iraqi elec-
tions Sunday went over relatively
well. One step closer to a demo-
cratic country.
Why is it that when your
"friend" is dating someone else,
you get put to the back burner
until they need something and
then they come running to you
for help and expect you to drop
everything for them?
Some professors have terrible
handwriting. I mean, the class is
already hard and the professor is
trying to lecture and write down
notes and the students are strug-
gling to decrypt the professor's
handwriting. Just type it and put
it on blackboard, how hard is that?
Honors students need 24
hours of honors credit but there
are so few sections of honors
classes offered. Then, professors
don't always allow us to take
classes that are honors by con-
tract. Something's gotta give
if we want to have a challenge
or go above and beyond the
usual requirements, we deserve
some help from the faculty and
administration.
Even if you sign up early for
a machine at the student rec
center, don't make someone else
move if there are other identical
machines open next to it.
Why is it that the people that
mow the grass on campus or at
apartments always figure us col-
lege students are always awake at
8 a.m.? My first class is at 11 a.m.
and I would appreciate it if I could
sleep later and not have to worry
about hearing the lawnmower
right underneath my window.
The three TEC opinion col-
umnists say the same things
over and over again. It's time for
a new idea, people. Your readers
are getting tired.
To the person complain-
ing about "those who have not
slacked off and gotten out of
shape during the first semester"
and not having any equipment
to work out on because of us fat
people who are only going to the
gym to accomplish a resolution
that will "fizzle out by Febru-
ary last time I checked, a part
of every ECU student's tuition
pays for our use of the gym.
Regardless of our reason for being
there, instead of complaining you
should be congratulating those
who are trying to get in shape
for doing just that. Do you want
America to stay overweight and
out of shape? Try going when it's
not so crowded or signing your
name to the little sheet on the
machines.
People who do their job well
are awarded with new fancy
equipment they rightfully
deserve. People who do not do
their jobs well have to remain
using old beat up equipment they
rightfully deserve. That is how
the world works.
I bleed from my Metallica
tattoos.
I hate it when Minges
Maniacs.com magically forces me
to stay on it all day when I should
be studying.
They should change the name
of "One Stop" to "Two Stop" since
we now have to enter our login
and password twice to access
e-mail.
To all the liberals out there,
especially Peter Kalajian (who
predicted 13 of Iraqi's would
show up to vote): 72 percent
turned out, and to quote one,
"This is just like a dream
I don't understand Greenville.
People drive below the speed
limit on the highway but they
fly through parking lots like it's
a race track.
The frat rats and sorority sues
should really clean up their bed

after rush is over, as they are
pretty unsightly after the wind
rips them apart.

Anthropology, design go hand in hand
ECU graduates open
their own business
ASHLEY WHEDBEE
STAFF WRITER
It's great to know there are
ECU graduates out there making
it on their own in our neck of
the woods. Audra Whorton, who
graduated from ECU last May
with a degree in anthropology
and history, and her fiance, Jason
Sampson, who will graduate
next December with a degree in
anthropology, recently opened
their own store here in Greenville
called Artifacts.
Artifacts is "a store that cel-
ebrates hand-crafted jewelry
and gift items created by young
people all over the country
said Susan Whorton, Audra's
sister. The store carries items
designed by Audra and by other
young artists. These items include
hand painted jewelry, wine and
margarita glasses and plates.
The design features range from
hearts to school colors and logos.
Everything is handmade except
the sterling silver jewelry.
Although opening your
own business can be extremely
time consuming and scary at
first, this ECU graduate makes it
perfectly clear that it is worth it.
Whorton said this store finally
gave her the chance to showcase
her art to others and see their
reactions instead of just having
her items as wholesale.

The PRSSA stands for the
Public Relations Student Soci-
ety of America. This group is
actively involved in the field of
communication and has around
30 active members. If you are
interested in a job in the field
of public relations, this group is
a must for you. But what if you
aren't interested in PR? Even if
you aren't interested in the field
of communication there is still
room for you here.
The ECU chapter of PRSSA
is one of the largest, most active
and surprisingly, newest chapters
in the state. The participants in
the group deal directly with all
sorts of professionals everyday,
ranging from large medical cor-
porations to many different cor-
poration administrations. They
also attend conventions in New
York City, and hold events here
in Greenville.
The events held here in
Greenville are not just for chap-

WZM-Who?
Yes, ECU does have its
own radio station
TREVOR KIRKENDALL
STAFF WRITER
Believe it or not, there are
more radio stations in town than
the popular 99X or Bob 93.3.
Many students at ECU don't even
realize our school has a radio sta-
I tion that broadcasts daily during
j the school year. If you are one of
the many who are not aware of
. this, you are not alone. In fact, it
can take more than three semes-
i ters to discover our very own
radio station.
The station is 91.3 WZMB.
They broadcast each and every
day school is in session. This is a
station that has one purpose for
I existing: to entertain you by play-
ing the music you want to hear.
' What other radio station around
, here plays a wide variety of
! music and has a daily program
1 that conforms to your standards?
! You won't find rap on 99X and
you won't find great ska, the
beach, punk and swiny mix on
Bob 93.3. WZMB has them all.
"We just want to play what
people want to hear said senior
Shawn Lamons, WZMB general
manager.
And the station does just
that. Their daily schedule plays
everything and anything. That
l means you get a lot of rock,
hip-hop, R&B, punk, ska, metal,
I jazz, blues, brand new music,
classic rock and gospel. And
if the supply of metal is not
enough for you, let them know.
They want to make a program
schedule that fits the desire of
every person on campus. Name
one other mainstream com-
mercial station that has as much
variety and works to ensure your
satisfaction, rather than pleas-
ing the likes of investors.
The radio station begins its
daily broadcast at 8 a.m. with
the MorningZ. The DJs "pretty
much play whatever they want
said junior Kacy Thompson,
program director of the radio
station. Requests are always
accepted and granted easier
than a commercial radio station.
Two times a day, WZMB dedi-
cates time to playing brand new
music. Some of the bands featured
during these time blocks are
newly signed bands, while others
are still shopping their demos
to record labels. A lot of the
I songs are brand new buzz cuts
I everyone in America will soon
be singing daily, but here at
ECU, we get to enjoy them before
anyone else.
"We were playing bands
like Modest Mouse and Franz
Ferdinand before they become
! popular Lamons said about
their "New Music" blocks.
"We try and shy away from
playing just the singles Thomp-
son said.
"The Blue Note Cafe" can
I be heard on WZMB during
lunchtime. This show features
a lot of blues music and jazz.
This segment is particularly
popular amongst the faculty at
ECU. There's also the "Drive at
j 5 which plays whatever people
j want to hear. If you're stuck
in your car on the ever busy
Greenville Boulevard, this is the
show for you. Give the DJs a call
if you want to hear your favorite
song on the radio while you wait
in traffic after classes. It's always
a great feeling to hear a song you
love come on the radio at your
request while the streets are
clogged with many cars.
The station also has spe-
cialty programs throughout the
week that play all punk, all ska,
all retro, all metal, all reggae,
all indie rock and all techno.
Where else can you find this
much variety on one station in
Greenville? On the weekends,
WZMB continues its broadcast
with gospel music, roots rock
and classic rock in addition to
playing some of the other spe-
cialty programs.
WZMB also features differ-
ent talk shows that pertain to

on campus. Monday nights, the station has "Pirate
Talk which covers everything from ECU sports
all the way to the national level, which features
TEC's own Tony Zoppo. This show features many
guests that have included ECU Athletics Director
Terry Holland and former ECU athletes. The sports
team at WZMB also provides live broadcasts from
all the Lady Pirates home basketball games. They
broadcasted all the home football games from last
season, and are trying to air some of the home Pirate
baseball games this upcoming season. There's also
the "Insight Show" which is issue based. Lamons
said this show contains "stuff that pertains mainly
to college kids They talk about everything from
different organizations to student health. They also
have counselors come in and do on-air interviews.
Another show is for local music only, where local
bands come into the studio to do interviews and
to get their name out. Guests have included Afro-
man, Squeezetoy and even a band all the way from
California. If you are in a band and are interested in
being featured on this show, drop off your demo at
the radio station. Not only will it be put into rota
tion, but you might even get to come into the studio
for an interview. Finally, there's the "Expressions
Show" on Thursdays. This covers minority issues
on campus, focusing on all the minority groups we
have here at ECU.
Contrary to popular belief, employment at the
radio station is not limited to just communication
majors. Both Lamons and Thompson happen to
be media production majors, but there are a wide
range of students with different majors working at
WZMB. Sports Director Scotty Williams is a history
education major. When asked if he finds it diffi-
cult working for the radio station and not being a
communication major, Williams said "it's a great
experience for communication majors, but it's also
good for students who want to get experience work-
ing in media WZMB is always looking to hire new
WZMB student DJ broadcasts over airways.
employees. For those who don't want to broadcast,
there are also jobs available for behind the scenes
work, such as production and grants. Stop by the
station to apply.
Since this station works for the students of
ECU, they are also willing to help promote campus
events. They work closely with Pirate Underground
and their DJs are at all the shows. They will also do
some on-air announcements for different events
around campus. If you want on-air publicity, just
stop by the radio station.
WZMB is your radio station. The entire staff is com-
mitted to making sure they play the very best music
that you want to hear each and everyday of the week.
"We've grown a lot since I first started in 2002
Lamons said about her tenure at the station.
"We want feedback Thompson said.
The station will conform to the types of music
that you want to hear. There aren't a lot of radio
stations out there that will alter their programs just
because their listeners want it changed. If you have
never tuned your dial to 91.3 you might want to give
it a try and see what you have been missing.

SGA keeps student opinion In the loop'
What can they
do for you?
AMANDA WINAR
STAFF WRITER
Back in the year 1920,
ECU got its first taste of stu-
dent government. The Stu-
dent Government Association
was formed, yet in 1934 two
separate ECU organizations
emerged: The Women's Student
Government Association and
The Men's Student Govern-
ment Association. Only a mere
10 years later, the two groups
once again merged together to
form the strong Student Govern-
ment Association, which is still
standing today.
So what exactly is the SGA?
The SGA is a collaboration of
ECU students that are the rep-
resentative governing body
for all students at the univer-
sity. The Director of University
Unions, Vice Chancellor and
Assistant Vice Chancellor for
student life are all advisors and
act as valid sources for the ECU
students and members of the
SGA. The members are in con-
trol of student affairs, student
organizations and have an active
role in deciding things that
directly affect ECU students.
Since the SGA is open for any
and all students, the organization
also gives every student the oppor-
tunity to participate in levels of
governmental activities and
political events. There are three
branches: executive, legisla-
tive and judicial, very similar
to our own United States Gov-
ernment. Shannon O'Donnell
was elected last semester as the
current 2004-2005 SGA presi-
dent. As president, she is also
a member of the ECU Board of
Trustees, where she brings the
"students' voice" to be heard at a
higher level, that under normal cir-
cumstances, would not be possible.
"SGA is a great organization
because it gives students a voice
within the ECU community
said junior communication major
Kristin Day.
"They have great fundrais-
ers and projects that help many
people around ECU, North Caro-
lina and the world
Currently, the largest project
that SGA is involved with is rais-
ing money for the Tsunami Relief
Fund to help all the victims and
people who are currently suffer-
ing from the recent natural disas-
ter. They are always looking for
new members to help in forming
committees and diving into the
governmental processes at ECU,
and would love to have you
help. The student government
offices are located on the second
floor of Mendenhall Student
Center. Weekly SGA meetings
are Wednesdays in room 221
at 8:30 p.m. For students who
want more information, to express
a concern or become a member,
their offices can be contacted
at 328-4726, and their e-mail
address is SGA@mail.ecu.edu.

lish connections. This year at the
Regional Crisis Communication
Competition, the deputy director
of the Argoniie National Labora-
tory, Don Joyce, will be flying
into Greenville to help with judg-
ing the events. This event entails
different groups receiving a mock
health crisis and allows different
groups to come up with solu-
tions to their specific problem.
Groups will work on their specific
problems through creating ad
campaigns, press releases and
choosing other forms to direct
the media in a less aggressive way
toward the assigned problem.
Another event the PRSSA is
handling right now is a t-shirt
contest. All students are eligible
and the idea is to create a logo
for the PRSSA t-shirts. Whoever
submits the best logo will get to
see their work printed on all of
the organization's t-shirts.
But why is the PRSSA advan-
tageous to so many different
majors? The PRSSA is always
looking to develop their design
graphics which could help art
majors. They have created, and
are still continuing to work with
music, theatre and dance events
and publicize them - this is an
interest to some music, theatre
or dance majors. They constantly
work with medical corporations,
which could create a launch pad
for some of the many students
majoring in biology, chemistry
or one of the many medical fields
offered here at ECU.
For those who are English
majors and print journalism
majors, the PRSSA is continually
working on newsletters, press
releases and other related work,
whfch would guarantee the
improvement of your writing
skills. And for broadcast journal-
ism majors, the PRSSA is always
working with radio stations and
news stations statewide. The
list goes on and on, and just
the same, the opportunities in
the PRSSA go on and on. More
than the diversity of their work,
what this organization does is
invaluable to almost anyone's
career and it could give the boost
everyone needs in this overly
competitive world.
ECU is very lucky to have a
chapter of the PRSSA here. It takes
a lot to receive a charter from
the national committee in New
York City. The committee has to
review the school's curriculum,
the anticipated level of involve-
ment from the student body and
the school has to land two corpo-
rate sponsors just to be consid-
ered. ECU received their charter
two years ago, and became one
of nine universities in North
Carolina to receive a grant. After
its inception, the group here at
ECU became rigorously involved
with many different projects and
after two years has become the
largest and most active chapter
in North Carolina.
Once students graduate from
college, they can continue their
involvement with the PRSSA.

people are still connected with
the adult version of the group,
the PRSA, if they were involved
in college. Even in the work-
ing force, the group allows you
to create a web of contacts,
which indirectly increases
your potential for climbing the
business ladder.
Sure this all sounds nice and
interesting, but what are the
students saying? What keeps
these kids coming back to the
organization? President of the
PRSSA chapter at ECU, Stacy Ellis
says "PRSSA has benefited me) so
much because I have been able
to network with people that I
would never have met if I was not
a member of PRSSA. I have been
able to go to New York and sit and
talk with CEO's of companies and
talk with people that work with
very large companies around the
world. PRSSA has helped me to
be more open when speaking to
people Instead of being shy.
"We are working on many
different activities right now so
we stay very busy and we also
get experience. Even though
it's not said to be an internship,
you gain so much experience by
helping planning events, writing
articles for our newsletter or help-
ing fundralsing
Ellis' enthusiasm about the
group was very apparent, prov-
ing yet another point. The group
is a great way to make friends,
and most importantly establish
contacts. In this highly com-
petitive business world we live
in, hundreds of thousands of
students get out of college every
year and what distinguishes one
over the other is who they know.
In the PRSSA you have the abil-
ity to meet and become friends
with CEO's and other influential
people in the business world and
that benefit is priceless.
The PRSSA group is currently
accepting membership now
through early March. The only
fee, a $SS payment covers your
membership throughout the year.
The chapter here at ECU meets in
Joyner East, which is the building
directly across from the library

Upset city: Pirates knock
off hot Charlotte 49ers
ECU holds 49ers to
just 51 points for game
TRENT WYNNE
STAFF WRITER
Saturday, Jan. 29: The day
Moussa Badiane was expected
to break the Conference USA
record for most blocked shots
in a career held by former Cin-
cinnati star and All-American,
Kenyon Martin (292). The Pirate
nation got what they expected
from their star "swatter but it
was the unexpected that had the
5,300 plus in attendance leaving
Minges Coliseum wondering
what they had just witnessed.
With 6:41 remaining in the
game, the Charlotte 49ers had
51 points. After the defensive
change suggested by assistant
coach, George Stackhouse, the
Charlotte 49ers would stay at 51.
And stay, and stay and stay.
"When you play them, you
kind of have to pick your poison
said ECU Head Coach Bill Herrion.
"We played box-and-one,
which I would like to say we work
on every day, but I don't think
we've ever worked on it. But what
it did was it kept the ball from
(Curtis) Withers inside and that
was the difference. They didn't
react to it real well and maybe it
confused them a little bit
Withers had a game high 23
points and went on a personal
6-0 run, capped off by a three-
point play, which came at the
6:41 mark.
"I was very worried when
they started going to Withers
and we had no answer for him
Herrion said.
"Typically what we would
have done is double the post,
but the reason we didn't do that
is we were so concerned with
(Brendan) Plavich
ECU used the box-and-one to
contain both Withers and Plav-
ich, holding the 49ers scoreless

for the final 6:41.
However, the Pirates had
been struggling offensively as
well and would need a spark from
somewhere to give themselves a
chance to pull off the upset.
After a disappointing shoot-
ing performance against the St.
Louis Billikens last Wednesday
night, freshman guard, Tommy
Hammonds IV would be one
of the few bright spots on the
offensive end for the Pirates,
connecting on all four of his
attempts from three-land in the
game and hitting what would
turn out to be the biggest jumper
of his young career.
With the score 51-50 in Char-
lotte's favor, the ball found itself
in Hammonds' hands.
"I had been feeling it ever
since I hit my first three said
Hammonds.
"I knew that when Japhet
(McNeil) kicked it out to me on
the baseline, they were going to
be flying at me. I work on one-
dribble pull-ups all the time and
when I released it, I knew it was
good
Hammonds' jumper at the
1:04 mark ended a scoring
drought by both teams of just
over three minutes and Badiane
would make sure Charlotte's
drought would continue un.tjl
the final buzzer had sounded.
After ECU went ahead 52-
51, Charlotte went back to their
main man on the night, looking
to get an easy two inside. With-
ers found daylight but it was
quickly darkened as "Moose"
collected his third block on the
evening, stuffing Withers' dunk
attempt.
ECU failed to capitalize on
the block, however, and the
49ers had another chance to
steal one from the Pirates in
Minges.

ECU will begin the baseball
season ranked 30th in the nation.
The latest preseason poll released
by The National Collegiate Base-
ball Writer's Association gave the
Diamond Bucs their highest such
preseason honor. The Pirates were
also ranked 32nd by Collegiate
Baseball, who released their
preseason rankings on Dec. 22.
Baseball America, the well
known publication out of
Durham, NC who reports pre-
dominately in the eastern part
of the United States, but releases
national polls and rankings, left
the Pirates out of their preseason
top 50. A year removed from
51 wins, National Writer Will
Kimmey, coordinator of the poll,
has answers.
"It might sound simple or
smart-alecky, but we just see each
team we ranked ahead of ECU as
better said Kimmey.
"ECU's offensive and leader-
ship losses were severe, plus it lost
its best pitcher in Greg Bunn. That's
a ton to lose for a team that beat
teams by destroying their pitch-
ing staff on Friday night, which
does impact the series on Sundays.
"The Pirates are a tournament
team, but aren't world beaters
this year
You're right Will, the Pirates
aren't world-beaters. But while
they may not roll to 51 wins again
this year, the Diamond Bucs are
anything but a team that doesn't
deserve to be in the top 50.
First things first, losing Greg
Bunn to the draft was a huge
loss. However, the Pirates are
returning 41 of the 51 wins from
last year's staff, which includes
two of three starters and a
dynamite bullpen.
Shane Matthews will anchor
the load for the Pirates on the
mound this year. The super
sophomore was 7-1 last year with
an ERA of 3.72. Those numbers
earned him the honors of the
Conference USA All Freshman
Team as well as being named to
the Louisville SluggerCollegiate
Baseball All Freshman Team.
Senior southpaw Brody Taylor
will likely be the Saturday starter
and will look to improve on a stel-
lar junior season. Taylor started
15 games for the Pirates and was a
perfect 8-0 pitching 85.1 innings,
striking out 63 while only
issuing 16 walks. A shoulder
injury may keep Taylor out of the
early season lineup, but look for
him to enter the rotation as soon
as he returns to 100 percent.

so good for ECU a year ago,

Super Bowl trash talk heats up
Mitchell has a personality as diverse as his wardrobe.
(AP) � Even without the pads
on, New England safety Rodney
Harrison delivered quite a blow.
Asked whether he will say
anything to Eagles wide receiver
Freddie Mitchell, who dissed the
Patriots' secondary last week, Har-
rison took his shot.
"What would I say?" he said.
"It's Freddie Mitchell
And with that, Super Bowl
week was on.
The Eagles and Patriots, two
teams with very little history or
animosity between them, opened
America's big football celebration
with a nice bit of trash talking
Sunday at the first of the dozen or
so news conferences that will take
place during the week.
This was Harrison's first chance
on the Super Bowl stage to respond
to Mitchell. Last week, the Eagles
receiver said he couldn't name
any of the Patriots defensive backs
except for Harrison, about whom he
said, "I've got something for him
Harrison, who has spent much
of his 11-year career playing
the us-against-the-world card to
anyone who would listen, found
his perfect foil in Mitchell, who
let political correctness take a back
seat and greased the wheels for
this Super Feud.
"You're always going to find
one jerk out of the bunch. Just
like Vanderjerk. Mike Vander-
jerk Harrison said, referring to
Colts kicker Mike Vanderjagt,
who earlier in the postseason
suggested the Patriots were ripe
for a loss. "You're always going to
find one guy like that who wants
some attention and wants to do
something to try and stir up the
emotions of the game
Not surprisingly, Mitchell was
unavailable at the Eagles' media
opportunity Sunday. Also not sur-
prisingly, coach Andy Reid tried to
sidestep the inevitable questions
about how he reacted when he
heard what Mitchell said.
"That's between Freddie and
I Reid said.
Meanwhile, Eagles quarterback
Donovan McNabb understandably
took his teammate's side in the
fray, framing Mitchell's comments
as meaningless blather made
during the tedious bye week.
"Freddie didn't mean any-
thing by them. It's sad that people
have to blow them up to make
them into a story McNabb said.
"Freddie apologized. If someone
needs those comments to get up
for a game like this, they don't
need to be here. This is the Super
Bowl, this is the ultimate
The Mitchell-Harrison imbro-
glio took at least a temporary bite
out of the other main "football"
stories of the week: whether the
Eagles will get lost in the hoopla
of playing in their first Super Bowl
since 1981 (Reid said he'll give the
players their freedom, treat them
like adults); whether the Patriots,
seeking their third title in four
years, are on the verge of a dynasty
(Coach BUI Belichick insists the
past has nothing to do with this
week); and, most notably, whether
Eagles star receiver Terrell Owens
will deem his Injured ankle sturdy
enough to play.
Owens, who tore up the ankle
Dec. 19 and has missed the last
four games, has not received clear-
ance to play from the surgeon who
operated on his ankle.
Nevertheless, the receiver
hasn't ruled himself out of the
game and his status has become
the overarching theme of the
buildup to the big game.
"It seems like everyone talks
about the Patriots, then when they
talk about the Eagles, it's what
T.O. will do McNabb said. "If
he plays, you'll talk about him. If he
doesn't play, you'll talk about him
anyway
Reid said Owens has been
steadily increasing his work and
will try to "do a few things" at
a light practice Monday, but his
availability won't be determined
until much later in the week.
And while there will almost
certainly be an entire week to
speculate on Owens, it's hard to
know how long the Mitchell mess
will last.
Even if It was only for a fleet-
ing day, it was good stuff.
"When he says something
like that, he's disrespecting our
whole defense Patriots line-
backer Willie McGinest said. "Not
only Rodney, but me, and Tedy
Bruschi and Mike Vrabel and all
the rest of us
But especially Harrison.
"Maybe he was drinking
before he started talking he
said. "That was clearly a mis-
take, because no one in this
league would attack somebody
a week before the Super Bowl
ECU women's basketball drops heartbreaker to Tulane
(SID)�The ECU women's bas-
ketball team dropped its first Con-
ference USA game of the season
at home Sunday afternoon inside
Williams Arena at Minges
Coliseum to Tulane 66-64.
Junior Ebonee Downey
went to the free throw line
with less than a second remain-
ing in the contest shooting
three and looking to force the
I game into overtime. Downey
hit the first shot and came up
i short on the remaining two
halting the Pirates (7-13,
3-4) home winning streak at
four games.
After a back-and-forth first
half, which saw ECU take a 30-27
lead into the half, Tulane (10-
11, 2-6) took its biggest lead of
the game 49-41 after D'Aundra
Henry sank two free throws
with 11:49 left In the contest.
The Pirates crept back in going
on a 13-5 run themselves to tie
the game at 54-54 on a five-foot
jumper by Shanita Sutton.
Four points by Jen-
nifer Jackson and a Viola
Cooper three gave ECU
a 61-60 advantage with just
over two minutes left. Fol-
lowing a Tulane time out,
Henry connected on two free
throws and drained a 6-foot
jumper setting up a thrill-
ing finish with 13.6 ticks on
the clock. Unable to locate
Jackson or Cooper open on
the perimeter, Saman-
tha Pankey found Downey
open for a three-point
attempt. Henry's foul on
Downey marked the first time all
afternoon that the Pirates went
to the line.
Jackson led the Pirates with
17 points hitting 7-of-17 from
the floor, including 3-of-7 from
behind the arc. Cooper and
Pankey each tied career-highs
in assists with seven, while
Sutton grabbed a game-best
seven rebounds.
Henry paved the way for
Tulane with a game-high 20
points, while Lakethia Hampton
and Courtney Simmons also
scored in double-figures with
15 and 10 respectively.
The Pirates will hit the
road this weekend when they
travel to Tampa, Fla. to take on
USF Saturday, Feb. 5 at 1 p.m.
before closing the road trip at
UAB on Monday night.
Jackson (left) paced ECU in scoring again while Cooper (right) set a career high in assists.

the free throw line.
But in this chess match,
Badiane would have the 49ers in
checkmate after he stood tall and
drew the charge to help preserve
the victory.
"I was thinking about
blocking the shot, but when I saw
him go into the lane I just tried to
make a play said Badiane.
"1 just wanted to win the
game and it worked
Mike Cook tacked on two
free throws with just seconds
remaining and Charlotte's last
three point attempt rimmed
away, giving the Pirates their
second straight conference win.
"We made plays at the
end and that's what made the
difference Badiane said.
"That's how we lost so many
close games at the beginning of
the season
"Coach said before the game
that somebody was going to have
to do something special and
we had a lot of people step up
said Cook.
"It feels good to finally win
against a team like Charlotte
who seems like they always beat
us. We should of beat them here
last year, so this year we just said
we were going to take the game
from them
Badiane's three blocks on
the night moved him into sole
possession of the C-USA all
time blocks leader with 294
total. Along with the three
swats, he also pulled in nine
rebounds while scoring 16.
I lammonds also had 16, shooting
75 percent from the floor during
the game. Cook once again hit
double figures in scoring, as he
added 10 for the Pirates.
"This was a great gut-check for
our kids Herrion said. "It's amaz-
ing what winning can do for you
ECU will take its two game
conference win streak into Mem-
phis tomorrow night.
Game time is slated for 8 p.m.

Former 'Dream Job' winner
lands prime spot with ESPNU
COUKII
(KRT) CHICAGO � Mike
Hall is going from one dream job
to another.
ESPN is set to announce
Monday that Hall, the Glen Ellyn,
111 native who hit the jackpot by
winning ESPN's "Dream Job"
competition, will become the
signature anchor for ESPNU,
the college sports network set to
launch in March.
"He's going to be the guy,
the face and voice of ESPNU
said network vice president
Burke Magnus.
Not a bad gig for a White Sox
fan who's three weeks shy of his
23rd birthday. But the assign-
ment won't be easy.
ESPNU will broadcast more
than 300 live events in its first
year. They will range from the
already popular (football and
men's basketball) to the emerg-
ing (women's hoops, baseball)
to the rarely seen (hockey, soft-
ball, volleyball, wrestling and
lacrosse, among others).
Hall's tasks will include pre-
game shows, halftimes and post-
games. He also will host specials
and make public appearances.
He won't have to memorize
the rosters for Miami baseball,
UCLA women's volleyball and
Syracuse lacrosse. But he'll have
to know enough to be able to talk
about all of them.
"1 had lunch with (Baseball
Tonight' host) Karl Ravech, and
he told me: I need to know
everything about 30 baseball
teams. You're going to have
hundreds said Hall. "Part of
that is daunting, but most of it
is exciting
Hall certainly is excited
about moving from sleepy Bris-
tol, Conn to Charlotte, the
headquarters for ESPN Regional
Television, which will handle the
primary production responsibili-
ties for ESPNU.
"Let's compare the two Hall
said. "You've got a booming city
with warm weather vs. the four
things in Bristol: trees, ESPN,
McDonald's and trees.
"Bristol actually gets a
bad rap. It's not an awful hick
town. It's a nice place, but not
exactly a haven for a 22-year-old
single guy
Hall, a University of Missouri
alumnus, be,at out more than
10,000 competitors last year to
land a one-year, $95,000 gig
at ESPN.
He shared a "Sports Center"
desk with Linda Cohn in July
but has worked primarily at
ESPNEWS, where he pesters
producers to lead shows with
victories by his beloved Bulls.
Hall also has a passion for
college sports, making him a
natural for ESPNU. The network
already has solidified a home on
DirecTV, and ESPN is in active
discussions with cable and satel-
lite distributors. The launch date
is March 4. �
"He's been a regular on
ESPNEWS, so 1 told him, In the
short term, you'll probably have
less visibility but a much higher
profile Magnus said. "He's
fired up
So is Magnus, who jokes that
ESPNU will brand itself "the
home of Duke football
ESPN and ESPN2 will con-
tinue to get the A-list football
and men's basketball games, but
the new network should appeal to
Big 10 football fans. Games that
would have been seen regionally
on ESPN Plus should find a new
home on ESPNU.
Magnus is excited to show
NCAA championships in sports
such as wrestling and lacrosse.
"We've asked schools, Do
you mind if we show your
lacrosse game? he said. "And
they're doing backward hand-
springs. They say, 'We've been
waiting for people to do this

will likely be the key to Pirate
success this season. Kevin
Rhodes, who is remembered
most from his relief appearance
last season against South Caro-
lina, in which he dazzled the
Gamecock bats for nearly seven
innings, returns as the anchor
of the pen. Rhodes was 5-1 last
season, with an ERA of 2.87 in
37.2 innings of work.
Rose product Mike Flye
returns for his sophomore season.
The flame-throwing righty was
awesome for the Pirates last year,
leading the team in saves with
five and adding 36 strikeouts in
only 33 innings on the hill.
Offensively, the Pirates lost
a combined 71 homeruns and
304 RBI from last year's team.
ECU will begin to fill the gaps
with someone who I believe has
a legitimate shot to be amongst
the nation's leaders in home
runs in Mike Grace. Grace, in
limited action last year, batted
.281 with five home runs and a
slugging percentage of .517.
If you were to multiply his
numbers to equal the at-bats that
home run leader Trevor Lawhorn
had last year, Grace would have
belted 15 homeruns. Throw him
into the rhythm of everyday play,
and who knows, 23-27 dingers
isn't out of the question.
Quite possibly one of the
most underrated players in the
entire country, junior third
baseman Mark Minicozzi is
expected to have another solid
offensive output. Besides being
the best fielding third base-
man I have ever seen in person,
Cozz swings a pretty mean stick
as well. Batting .342 with 10
homeruns and 50 RBI would
lead most teams in offense,
but on a team that set almost
every school and conference
offensive record, Minicozzi's
numbers from last season took
the backseat to five, maybe six
other players. I expect Cozz to
emerge from the shadows of the
2004 offensive machine, and
to become one of C-USA's elite
players. The conference seems to
concur. They named Minicozzi
to the preseason all conference
team last Wednesday.
While not the most
powerful hitter on the squad.
Drew Costanzo will make seri-
ous contributions to the run
total as well. Costanzo hit .320
a year ago, but his best games
were in the postseason when it
mattered the most. He has a big
game mentality, which was best
displayed in last year's night
contest against Clemson in the
Leclair Invitational in which he
belted the game winning home
run in a pinch-hit effort in extra
innings to lead the Pirates to
victory. His greatest virtue how-
ever, just might be his patience.
Costanzo was third on the team
in walks, but the most amazing
part of that statistic is he drew
more walks than bushwhackers
Trevor Lawhorn, Darryl Lawhorn
and Ryan Norwood. If Drew can
continue to be a selective hitter
and work opposing pitchers into
deep counts, the Pirates will have
a double-edge sword at the plate
in Costanzo.
Let's be honest. Most people
do not expect ECU to repeat last
year's success, mainly in part
to the overwhelming loss in
offensive production. But since
when do you have to annihilate
every opponent? The Pirates
won most of their games going
away last season, and though it
was great entertainment, a one
run win would have been just as
important as a 12 run victory.
The Pirates need a catalyst
to jumpstart another run to the
top of the polls and ultimately
Omaha, Neb. and the College
World Series. How about the
coaching staff? Randy Mazey and
company love small-ball, and
they will have plenty of oppor-
tunity to display their coaching
prowess in a lot of close contests.
I believe having one of the
nation's toughest schedules will
only make the Pirates a better
team, and once the postseason
arrives, they will have seen it all.
Everyone thought last
year was the year for Omaha,
and this season would be a
rebuilding year. Recipe for
Omaha - great starting pitching,
deep bullpen, great coaching,
lots of small-ball, timely hitting
and a desire to be there in the
end. ECU has all of these, so why
not this year?
I'm calling it right now,
Pirates to Omaha in 2005.
