Illegal music downloading
The ban could prevent
smoking in congested areas.
ECU faculty 3
approves
smoking ban
New policy would
affect high traffic areas
MICHAEL HARRINGTON
SENIOR WRITER
ECU's Faculty Senate approved
a resolution in their Dec. 7 meet-
ing, calling for a ban that would
prohibit smoking in all high traf-
fic areas of campus.
ECU Chancellor Steve Bal-
lard, who will make the final
decision on whether the ban
will be implemented, is currently
evaluating the resolution.
If passed, the ban would
prohibit smoking in a number
of high traffic areas on campus,
such as entrances to buildings,
exterior stairwells, stairs, stair-
well and elevator landings and
partially enclosed corridors.
The areas affected by the new
policy would be marked with
no-smoking signs and an educa-
tional effort would take place to
ensure that students, faculty and
staff are aware of the ban.
If it gains approval from the
chancellor, a task force would be
assembled to determine how to
properly implement the ban.
The resolution was brought
forth by Robert Morrison, profes-
sor in the department of chemis-
try, who has a sister fighting her
way through lung cancer.
Morrison said his sister,
Cathy Day, is a dedicated runner
who never smoked cigarettes, but
managed to acquire lung cancer
through the effects of second
hand smoke. Both Day's parents
and her former husband of 20
years were smokers.
Another motivating factor for
offering the resolution Morrison
said, was looking at ECU and its
role in the area.
"One of the pillars of the
institution is health care, so we
have a responsibility to improve
the health care in this region and
in this state said Morrison.
"One of the primary reasons
of poor health in this area is the
use of tobacco products
Karen Warren, director of well-
ness education, said campuses all
over the country have been looking
into implementing smoking bans.
In March 2004, ECU's Well-
ness Education Department began
surveying students to deter-
mine their attitudes on smoking.
"When we asked how strongly
second hand smoke affects you,
81 percent said it concerned
them said Warren.
The wellness education survey
indicated IS percent of students
at ECU smoke, but 43 percent of
those students are social smok-
ers who light up on weekends
or only at certain locations.
Warren said the increased dif-
ficulty a ban would bring to the
smoking process might encour-
age some of those students who
are not seriously addicted to quit.
Georgia Childs, assistant
director for peer health at well-
ness education, said she attended
a conference in September held
by the Tobacco-Free Colleges

Directors continue to do battle
against music piracy on campus
LAUREN DONOVAN
STAFF WRITER
ECU students are continuing to illegally download music despite
vast efforts by ECU directors to put a halt to music piracy.
Though the problem has decreased in severity - from
last year's 41 students who were reprimanded to this year's 28 - it is a
continuing struggle to get the message across that this is illegal.
Many students don't realize that when they sign onto a site that
offers free music downloads, they are opening up a gateway to their
computer.
Clay Hallock, information technology security analyst for the
information technology and computing services of ECU, stressed
this fact.
"By using these programs without making sure your computer is
completely protected, you are basically signing away your computer's
life said Hallock.
Hallock is one of many who work to detect problems in computer
systems all over campus. He said they don't go in and look at people's
personal computers unless that computer is causing problems for the
system. Popular peer to peer file sharing programs such as Kazaa,
Morpheus and Aimster can cause problems for the computer and
surrounding computers.
"If a computer is putting out a tremendous amount of traffic,
we will then take a look at what is going on with that individual
computer Hallock said.
Hallock explained the various worms and viruses that can crawl
into your computer through the action of uploading and downloading.
"Each infection varies, and they can totally take over one
computer, a whole dorm of computers or even the whole Internet
system for the university Hallock said.
The damage that can be caused by downloading, plus the legal
issues that come along with it, makes it imperative that disciplinary
action be taken upon those who are involved.
The Recording Industry Association of America, takes the issue
of illegal downloading very seriously.
Margaret Olszewska, assistant director of student conflict
resolution, explained the correlation between ECU and the RIAA.
"It's not ECU that is tracking students down said Olszewska.
"It's the production companies, RIAA, that flag individual files
and then trace those files
It Is easier for the RIAA to concentrate on major networks such
as ECU, rather than trying to combat individual households. The
RIAA notifies ECU, and it is then the university's job to look at the
IP address and try to identify the owner of the computer.
"If we do not send the RIAA a return e-mail telling them that all
of the cases have been addressed, we could face a fine of $25,000
Olszewska said. ,
When the individual students are found, if it is their first offense,
the department of student conflict resolution will meet with the
student and give them a warning. On a student's second offense,

RIAA fights music piracy
LAUREN DONOVAN
STAFF WRITER
The Recording Industry Association of America is still In the
process of fighting a seemingly never-ending battle against music
piracy in America.
The RIAA is a trade group that represents the U.S. recording
industry. Amanda Hunter works with the communication depart-
ment of the RIAA.
"The RIAA works to protect intellectual property rights worldwide.
We want to support our members' creative and financial well-being
said Hunter.
The music industry makes approximately $40 billion annually,
90 percent of which is controlled by the RIAA.
Though the music industry has managed to become one of the
top industries in the world, it has been struggling to keep all of the
money coming in and going to those who deserve it. With the intro-
duction of greater technology and high-speed cable Internet, people
were able to develop ways to share copyrighted music with people
all over the world.
In 1998, the federal government passed the Digital Millennium
Copyright Act, prohibiting the downloading or stealing of music off
the Web. The RIAA went up against Napster, which was probably
the largest software of the time and won. Numerous artists backed
the RIAA in their efforts to stop music piracy including heavy metal
group Metallica.
Since then, despite the efforts of the RIAA, new downloading
software still exists and people continue to use it every day.

Greek organizations create new quarterly publication
The Chapter House' to
promote Greek issues
ASHLEY SAWYER
STAFF WRITER
A new all-Greek publication
entitled The Chapter House has
become available to students
to further educate them on the
Greek community and events.
The goals of this publication,
according to Edward Freeman,
former public relations chairman
for the interfraternity council,
are to strengthen the Greek
community as a whole, publicize
accomplishments and promote
the organizations.
"The magazine is called
The Chapter House to mock the
assumption that we are all in one
big Animal House said Freeman.
"ECU's chapter of Greek life is
a tight-knit community. We are all
in one big chapter house together
Greek organizations are
hoping to show people on campus
there is more to Greek life than
all of the commonly known
social aspects. They want people
to realize they are service orga-
nizations in addition to being
social organizations and they
perform services to benefit the
community as a whole.
The publication will keep
people in the Greek community
informed on current events.
"The other two public rela-
tions chairmen and I thought
it would be a good idea to help
strengthen our community as a
whole by keeping everybody in
the Greek community updated
on events, give them insight into
what is happening within the gov-
erning bodies and let them know
about happenings on campus
that affect us Freeman said.
"The magazine evolved into
the concept that is has today
While The Chapter House
is being offered quarterly for
now, Freeman said he believes
the number of issues per year
will increase significantly in a
very short period of time. The
chairmen decided to start it off
slowly so they don't get ahead of
themselves. They also want to be
certain there is
an interest in the
all-Greek maga-
zine before they
take the steps
necessary to have
more issues avail-
able to readers.
The media
board has given
permission to dis-
tribute the maga-
zines on campus.
The magazines
will be either
on racks placed
around campus or there will be
people passing the magazines
out in the brickyard at Wright
Circle. They will be available to
students and the Greek com-

this week.
This
magazine will
help the Greek

College
applicants
increase in
numbers
Changes to admission
taking place
CHRIS MUNIER
STAFF WRITER
Currently underway in the
admissions process, ECU is receiv-
ing an increased number of appli-
cations, allowing acceptance of
higher qualified students, in turn
benefiting the university.
According to Anthony Britt,
senior associate director of the
office of undergraduate admis-
sions, the increase in applications
is mainly a result of demograph-
ics. Increased birth rates in recent
years have led to more students
graduating high school. Subse-
quently, this allowed admissions
faculty to choose better-qualified
applicants.
Britt said ECU needs to con-
sider class sizes in order to prevent
overcrowding of classes, dining
and residence halls. ECU has,
however, anticipated this increase
and is expecting things to func-
tion with minimal problems.
Several construction projects are
underway, including the West
End Dining Hall and dormitory
on College Hill to help accom-
modate the projected increases.
Britt said there has been an
improvement in the quality of
courses prospective students take
in high school. In years past, stu-
dents would be taking required
courses during their senior year
of high school, meaning they
were not attempting advanced
level courses in preparation for
college. Currently, students are
challenging themselves with
advanced placement and inter-
national baccalaureate classes.
"We want to see that the stu-
dents have) taken courses that
are appropriate for their motiva-
tion and abilities said Britt.
He said this is one major dif-
ference between ECU and other
schools. ECU wants students to
take AP courses that conform to
their field of interest. He said it does
not make sense for a student who
specializes in social science to take
AP calculus to impress colleges.
In comparison to UNC Chapel
Hill, ECU is more objective during
the admissions process.
Britt said UNC Chapel Hill is
swamped with highly qualified
candidates and bases acceptance on
how likely it is the student will actu-
ally enroll there if accepted. ECU
is less rigid in its decision-making.
"We look at a number of
credentials in the academic for-
mula Britt said.
He said ECU is somewhat
controversial in the way it mea-
sures high school GPAs during
admissions.
Unlike other universi-
ties, ECU primarily looks at
unweighted high school GPAs.
He said problems arise when
looking at weighted GPAs because
different high schools have dif-
ferent methods for calculating
them. The weighted value forms a
sketchy perception for admissions
officers who have to figure out if
the "A" or "B" a person received
was bona fide in accordance to
ECU standards. He said it is not
fair to compare students from dif-
ferent high schools, considering
different schools offer different
quantities of APIB classes.
ECU also places much less
emphasis on standardized test
scores than other colleges, as they
only account for 18-20 percent of
the admissions formula.
Britt said standardized tests
are mainly used as a "national
yardstick" to see how different
colleges rank amongst each other.
The Internet has allowed stu-
dents to apply online, allotting
a less complicated and timely
application process.
Applying to ECU via online
is increasing, with 67 percent of
applications completed electroni-
cally this year. This quickens the
entire process, and allows ECU to
respond rapidly.
Britt said ECU's popularity
and reputation are improving.
He cited medicalhealth sciences,
fine arts, business and education
programs as being the biggest
draws for ECU.

Woman pinned under
Amtrak train at Raleigh station
RALEIGH, NC - A woman was struck
by an Amtrak passenger train and
briefly pinned beneath it Tuesday
while waiting passengers at the
nearby station watched.
The 41-year-old woman was
conscious and breathing when she
was removed from beneath the train,
but authorities gave no additional
details on her condition and did not
release her name.
It took rescuers about 45 minutes
to free her.
Police were sorting through conflicting
statements from witnesses as they
tried to sort out what happened, Lt.
R.B Embry said.
The woman was struck about
20 yards from the station as the
northbound Carolinian arrived at
about 12:20 p.m.
One witness. Martha Kelder, said the
woman walked slowly toward the train
as it approached, stepped onto the
tracks and turned her back to the train.
It struck her and then came to a stop.
"I wondered why she was up so close
to the train said Kelder
Teacher pleads guilty to
indecent liberties with student
CHARLOTTE, NC - A former high
school English teacher has pleaded
guilty to taking indecent liberties with
a 16-year-old student, but avoided
going to prison because she had no
previous criminal record.
Mecklenburg Superior Court Judge
Gentry Caudill on Monday placed
Nicole Pomerleau, a former teacher at
Olympic High School, on probation for
two years and ordered her to perform
60 hours of community service and
turn in her teaching certificate.
The judge also told Pomerleau,
32, that she could not have sexual
contact with, or teach, anyone under
18 during her probation.
The crime doesn't require that
Pomerleau register as a sex offender.
Mecklenburg Assistant District
Attorney Barry Cook told the judge
that Pomerleau had admitted having
sexual intercourse with the 16-year-
old student on two occasions - in
January 2004 and February 2004.
The prosecutor said the teenager's
mother found e-mails between
her son and Pomerleau that
led her to think something was
going on between the two. The
mother contacted school security.
The sex took place, Cook said, once
at Pomerleau's home and another
time at a friend's home.
Defense attorney Robert DeCurtins
said Pomerleau, who is married and
has two young children, had been
involved in what he described as "an
ill-advised relationship

Forenslcs at ground zero
end with 1,161 still unidentified
NEW YORK - The medical examiner's
office has ended its effort to identify
the remains of those killed at the
World Trade Center site on Sept. 11,
2001, leaving more than a thousand
victims unidentified.
"WeVe finished making identifications
for the World Trade Center Robert
Shaler, director of forensic biology at
the medical examiner's office, told the
New York Daily News in Wednesday's
editions.
The forensic effort failed to identify
more than 1,100 victims, or almost half
of the 2,749 who died there, according
to the Daily News.
Since the attacks more fhan three
years ago, the medical examiner's
office identified nearly 1,600 victims,
although progress had slowed
considerably in recent months. Since
September, only eight victims have
been identified.
The city has about 10,000 unidentified
bone and tissue fragments that cannot
be matched to the list of the dead.
The medical examiner's office will
contact all victims' families who
asked to be notified when the forensic
effort ended.

Iraqi Interim vice
president says race far from over
BAGHDAD, Iraq - Iraq's Kurdish
interim vice president on Wednesday
said negotiations to pick the country's
new prime minister were far from
over, as Iraq's new political king-
makers sought to secure top jobs,
including the largely ceremonial post
of president.
Haggling over senior positions in the
upcoming government came against
the backdrop of more violence. A
car bomb killed two people and
wounded 14 in the northern city of
Mosul, and a U.S. soldier was killed
in a separate bomb attack north of
Baghdad, officials said.
The dominant Shiite coalition on
Tuesday chose Ibrahim al-Jaafari,
one of two interim vice presidents and
leader of a religious party that fought
Saddam Hussein, as its candidate
for prime minister - making him the
overwhelming favorite for the post.
But for al-Jaafari to take the
premiership he must build a coalition
to gain agreement from Kurds and
others on the presidency and
candidates for Cabinet posts before
seeking the support of a majority of
the National Assembly elected Jan. 30.
Incumbent premier Ayad Allawi has
shown no sign of giving up his own
bid for the powerful post.
Al-Jaafari is "a man I can work
with, but to discuss who will be the
prime minister of Iraq, this still needs
more time Kurdish interim vice

We aim to get one of the top positions
and we aim to participate in the

Queen will not attend
Charles' marriage, palace says
LONDON - Buckingham Palace
said Tuesday that Queen Elizabeth
II would not attend the civil marriage
ceremony of her son Prince Charles
and Camilla Parker Bowles - but
that her absence should not be
interpreted as a snub.
The monarch will attend the church
blessing at Windsor Castle after the
April 8 civil ceremony in the local
town hall and will host the wedding
reception at the castle.
"The queen will not be attending
the civil ceremony because she is
aware that the prince and Mrs. Parker
Bowles wanted to keep the occasion
low key a palace spokeswoman
said. "The queen and the rest of the
royal family will, of course, be going
to the service of dedication at St.
George's Chapel, Windsor Castle
The spokeswoman denied the queen
was snubbing her son's second
marriage.
The queen is attending the service
of dedication and paying for the
reception -this is not a snub she said,
speaking on condition of anonymity.
The queen's prime concern is that
the civil ceremony should be as
low key as possible, in line with the
couple's wishes said the palace
spokeswoman. "Clearly If the queen
were to attend, the occasion would no
longer be, by definition, low key
Britain's Press Association reported
that Charles' sons, Prince William
and Prince Harry, and Parker Bowles's
grown children, Tom and Laura, were
expected to attend the civil wedding

Coalition, a group of 15 colleges
interested in addressing tobacco
use behaviors on campus.

ference with an action plan
intended to address the problems
of tobacco use at ECU over the
next few years. When the faculty
senate passed the resolution ban-
ning smoking shortly after the
conference, Childs said she was
pleasantly surprised.
"It's a huge step in the right
direction said Childs.
Daniel Stiling, junior drafting
and design major, said he feels
sympathy for smokers because
they are being pushed out of
everywhere, but thinks the ban
would be a good decision.
"It's going to happen
eventually, so why not just
ban it now said Stiling.
As a non-smoker, Stiling said
walking by a group of smokers
can be a little bothersome.
"I would say it's pretty annoy-
ing when I've just taken a shower
and I walk by a group of smokers
and my clothes end up smelling
like smoke Stiling said.
Sarah Gajan, senior English
major, said the ban is unfair.
"When I get out of class and I
want a cigarette, I think I should
be able to have one said Gajan.

Following the Napster law-

According to the RIAA Web

Music piracy has had a vari-

Our View
Campuses should
accommodate file
sharing, not punish
The front-page of this edition got us thinking
about an issue that is always a hot topic
among college students - the issue of
downloading music.
The Recording Industry Association of
America has been experiencing decreasing
sales, largely contributing that number to the
increases in digital downloading.
According to RIAA, 60 million people down-
load 2.6 billion files each month, with the vast
majority being done illegally.
ECU is also cracking down on illegal down-
loading - a student with a fourth offense can
even be suspended. While TEC isn't encour-
aging students to break the law, we know
downloading is a common occurrence for
college students who have more time than
money to spend on music.
Rather than threaten a student with loss
of Internet privileges or suspension, ECU
should look to a solution that will help serve
the students - a decision similar to Penn
State.
In 2002, Penn State formed the Joint Com-
mittee of Higher Education and Entertain-
ment Industry to find a solution to wide-
spread student file sharing. A year later, Penn
State allowed students to download with a
legal form of Napster - student technology
fees covered the monthly fees.
It is our opinion that file sharing among
students cannot be stopped as long as
free services continue to be available on
the Internet. And since the Internet is almost
impossible to regulate, officials on all cam-
puses should work to create a solution that
would benefit, not punish, their students.

Opinion Columnist
Televangelism good, breast-baring a sin?
There are two sides
to every coin
PFTER KALAJIAN
LIBERAL AGITATOR
I have a confession to make. I hate
football. I find it arbitrary and about as
interesting to watch as the grass grow-
ing on the field. Nevertheless, every
year at the end of January, 1 usually end
up being subjected to the Super Bowl,
simply due to the fact that wherever I
happen to be in eastern North Carolina
on Super Bowl Sunday, the game is
invariably blaring out of every televi-
sion in sight.
Last year, there was one little
extra tidbit of drama which made the
game about as watchable a game as I
can recall. I will give you a hint. It
belonged to Janet Jackson. 1 remember
thinking "Wow that was a pretty bold
thing to do. Good for you, Justin Tim-
berlake And then, out of nowhere, the
torrent. Every god-fearing Christian
and social Conservative from here to
Kalamazoo was acting like Jackson and
Timberlake had engaged in some type
of deviant sex show on national televi-
sion, when in fact a whopping three-
second shot of a woman's exposed
breast was all that the public saw. In
fact, some weeks later, when Tim-
berlake's invitation to the Grammy's
arrived in the mail, it included a clause
which would force him to publicly
apologize for the indiscretion. Jackson
chose not to attend.
It seemed like the nation was just
waiting for something to pounce
on. New arguments about decency on
television rang out far and wide from
every Conservative pulpit in this coun-
try. The Republican Right and every
neo-Christian with a microphone was
publicly denouncing the American
slide into broadcasting debauchery,
calling for stringent laws about what
can be shown on television, and to
a large extent, they were accommo-
dated.
Michael Powell, former Chairman
of the Federal Communications Com-
mission, introduced a host of new
guidelines and suggested that all live
television be broadcast from now on
with a several second lag time, allow-
ing the network censors to effectively
blur any possible exposed breasts,
penises, buttocks or other controversial
body appendages. Leading this charge,
from day one, was a little network
called T.B.N (for all you godless athe-
ists and heretics out there that would
be the Trinity Broadcasting Network,
the ultra-conservative Televangellz-
ing private television system based in
Southern California).
I have always had some Issues with
televangelism. It seems there is not one
program broadcast by T.B.N. (trust me, I
have watched them all, and if anyone is
curious, it is something akin to having
every one of your fingernails pulled out
with a pair of pliers) which does not,
at some point in the broadcast, ask the
viewer for money. Whether in the form
of paying for a prayer from the minister
(who, by the way, may very well be MC
Hammer), a prayer handkerchief (that's
the best one) or simply a donation to
guarantee you remain on the good
side of the Lord, the entire network
is based around bilking people out of
their money.
The best thing about televangelists,
as far as I can tell, is their durability.
Pat Robertson (most dangerous man
in America) has gone on record, several
times, accusing Islam (the entire reli-
gion) as being "wicked" and "heretical
Jerry Falwell has remained one of the
most hardcore anti-abortion reaction-
aries and advocates for more faith in
government for decades, yet he emerges
as clean as the driven snow. Jimmy
Swaggert has gone on record saying that
it is funny to kill gays, and was caught
with his hand in the proverbial cookie
jar with a young woman who was most
certainly not his wife. He apologized,
"I have sinned, Lord and what do you
know, all was forgiven. He continued,
by the way, to advocate violence against
homosexuals and preach the goodness
of marital faithfulness.
Only one televangelist, Jim Baker,
actually saw his career disintegrate
before his eyes. Apparently, stealing
money from parishioners and lying
about it is a much more serious trans-
gression than adultery.
But not all televangelists are bad.
Rev. Billy Graham is one of the most
beloved religious figures in the nation,
regularly advising presidents and Con-
gressional leadership. He is the only
televangelist I can think of who seems
genuinely more interested in saving the
souls of his flock than in financing a
new BMW and swindling Americans
out of their hard earned money. Appar-
ently, persons with a weekly television
program can publicly spew haired for
gays and Muslims, but Jackson's breast
is just too much for the American
people to take.
We need to enforce a standard - a
standard which everyone is forced to
live by. If Jackson's breast is inappro-
priate, sexual promiscuity on reality
TV and bamboozling televangelism
(some of which can be classified as
hate speech) should be inappropriate
as well.
As far as I am concerned, until the
outcry for decency in broadcasting and
the suppression of the First Amend-
ment is applied equally to everyone,
we should just forget about the whole
business. What good are laws, meant to
"protect" Americans from the evils of
breasts and gratuitous violence, unless
they are applied everywhere?
In My Opinion
Phobia against fat is ultimately making us sick
(KRT) � During National Eating
Disorders Awareness Week (Feb.
27 - March S), we hear a lot about
the devastation that anorexia, bulimia
and compulsive overeating can wreak
on the lives of our citizens. However,
in the midst of our everyday media
messages, what we often miss is a sense
of how our hostile attitudes toward
fatness and fat people fuel disordered
eating.
Today's media, for instance, point
to the values of our culture, and make
examples out of those who conform
and those who transgress. A host of
programs centered around bodily trans-
formations - from "The Biggest Loser"
to "The Swan" to "Extreme Makeover"
- remind us that fat folks, those icons of
the obesity epidemic, should not exist
as anything but the ghosts of "before"
pictures.
There's a certain logic here: "Epi-
demic" is one of those words that seems
hard to argue with - it instantly confers
the status of seriously ill health on all
those it affects. But after a lifetime
of being fat, I have begun to wonder
whether obesity itself is always the
plague it's been made out to be. There's
a creepy way in our culture in which
hype about the obesity epidemic feeds
anti-fat prejudice: "Not only are these
people choosing to be unhealthy, but
they're costing the nation billions in
insurance costs and lost days of work
in the process If we can tell a differ-
ent story about fat lives, one that takes
into account the contradictions, we
might end up creating better health
for everyone.
I started getting fat around puberty,
although I started to diet two or three
years before that time. My father was
fat, and my parents worried that I, his
spitting image, would suffer the same
indignities he had experienced all his
life. I attended my first Diet Workshop
meeting at age 10 - it felt odd being
the only child among so many anx-
ious adults. They let me be the first to
sample the diet ketchup, and rigged
the raffle so that I would win the Diet
Workshop canvas tote.
When I was brave enough to carry
the tote to school the next day, 1 was
promptly "outed" as a dieter by a
rowdy boy in my fourth-grade class
and mocked relentlessly. I took away a
strange lesson. Nobody made fun of my
body - it wasn't really fat yet, after all
- but they did make fun of my attempt
to change it by seeking support from
fretful grown-ups. Dieting became
embarrassing.
Embarrassment did not stop me
from intense weight-cycling for the
next 10 years. When I started to
gain weight in early puberty, my
well intended parents researched my
options. I tried Overeaters Anonymous
in seventh grade (too religious, and the
language of addiction didn't seem right
for me, though I did lose IS pounds)
followed by Weight Watchers in ninth
grade (25 pounds lost, but then gained
back when I stopped teetotaling and
tried to live normally).
During high school, I went to
Weight Loss Clinic, which required
thrice-weekly weigh-ins, and lost 40
pounds, all of which I gained backBy
my first year of college, I was over 200
pounds and, awed by Oprah, began a
liquid diet. For three and a half months,
I consumed 505 calories a day in the
form of powder mixed either with water
or diet pudding. My teeth seemed about
as useful as my appendix. I lost enough
weight - 70 pounds - to be classified
as "normal When I started eating
actual food again, the weight came back
within a year. Finally, at 22, I became
a vegetarian and an obsessive devotee
of the Stairmaster, and lost a hundred
pounds.
Pirate Rant
To the ranter who complained
about the "terrible excuse for
the new jungle If you haven't
figured this out yet, when new
trees are planted they take time
to grow. The trees will not be
that small forever, and the "dirt
pile" you speak of is elevated to
provide fans in the jungle a better
view of the game. The "adminis-
tration's new baseball field" is a
sparkling gift to the entire base-
ball community. You probably
don't realize this because your
first game last year consisted of
your presence at the game only
to blast cheesy music and play
beer pong rather than actually
watching the baseball game.
Yes, if you choose to have sex, '
you should have to deal with the
consequences - like having a baby.
But what about rape or incest?
Would you want to keep the baby
of your attacker or your crazy sex-
obsessed uncle? I sure wouldn't. 5
Just so all you freshmen !
know, not all busses go to the Sj
Hill. Stop asking me that stupid Jj
question. Get a map. Transit gives 5
them away for free. And no, I will I;
not make a special stop for you. 5
To the person who attrib-
uted 10 percent annual tuition 2
increases to the policies of Ronald S
Reagan: I sure hope you didn't S
learn that in an ECU economics B
or history class. You only have B
to look around the campus at 8
ECU to see why your tuition -J.
has increased every year, not 1
in a casket in California. Your I
chancellor lives rent-free and S
earns over $200,000 a year. The �.
expansion of Joyner Library �
cost tens of millions, as did the I
addition to Ficklen Stadium, the S
Sports Medicine Complex, the -1
General Classroom Building and �"
all the other things you take for
granted. Reagan had nothing to 9
do with any of that. The ECU 3
Board of Trustees had everything 5
to do with that. Blame them, not B
Ronald Reagan.
I would think people are -
smart enough to skip reading any "�
rant they don't want to read. If
you're too ignorant or whiny to
handle political discourse, don't
read it and just skip it. It's that
simple. First we're too apathetic
about politics and now we need
to shut up? Take a hike, buddy.
Just to remind Tony McKee:
The biggest law to intrude on
the American people was the
Patriot Act.
I find it a little contradicting
that people will drive around
for 30 minutes waiting to find a
close parking spot to the SRC so
they don't have to walk. You're
going to work out right? Find a
spot somewhere else. It makes it
a lot nicer not to have to walk a
mile to my car at midnight when
I get off work.
To all of you who have kept
up your "lofty" New Years reso-
lutions, I apologize for earlier
comments. To those of you who J �
are now stealing machines at
the gym because you are trying
to desperately acquire a Baha-
mas body within the next three
weeks, I now loathe you.
:
Anybody ever wonder why we -Z
have to consider another tuition
increase here at ECU? Hmm,
maybe it has something to do
with the fact that now we have
three head football coaches on
the payroll (of which only one
is currently at the school), and
now a head basketball coach,
not to mention at least two chan-
cellors, etc. How about school
administrators start using our
money more efficiently before
asking us to shell out more? I'll
be thinking of all those coaches
enjoying $100,000 payouts next M
time I'm popping open another ,
bag of ramen noodles. Hopefully
I won't be the only one.
Poor Bill Herrion but I
guess Terry Holland is doing what
he was brought In to do.
Last time I checked we weren't
in high school anymore. So why
are people still writing on the
back of bathroom stalls? "Ashley
loves Daz" isn't really news
that needs to be spread around
campus.

Suspicious man concerns Tar River area residents
jthorities advise
gainst hiring strangers
RISTIN DAY
SSISTANT NEWS EDITOR
A man walking around the
ar River area since November
isking to do yard work and
lecoming belligerent when
denied has caused concern for
the university area.
Peg Gemperline, chairper-
son of Tar River's Community
Watch, said she received a call
a few weeks ago from a resident
who said a man came over to
her house after dark asking to
do yard work. She was concerned
because when she refused, he
"went away angry
Whenever anything suspi-
cious occurs, Gemperline con-
tacts about 30 long-term resi-
dents of the area to see if they
know anything. This time, many
of them reported similar stories.
Block captains of the com-
munity watch started reporting
incidents as well.
An older resident said she was
harassed by a man who cleaned
her gutters without permission
and wanted to be paid. A married
couple also had a confrontation
when the man refused to leave
until he was paid for work the
woman did not know he was
hired to do.
Michelle Lieberman, student
neighborhood relations facilita-
tor, said she had formerly worked
with the local police and she
knows about this particular man.
There are other people in the
neighborhood doing the same
thing, but he is there the most.
She said this particular man does
have a criminal record.
Lieberman said he pressures
residents into letting him do
work for them, but students who
report the incidents say they feel
more awkward than scared.
"I think sometimes they felt
uncomfortable, but I haven't had
any reports of violence but
some larceny said Lieberman.
One student reported to
Lieberman that the man might
have stolen a lawnmower after
cutting someone's grass.
Gemperline said Greenville
police have not been able to
do much about the situation
because it is not illegal to ask
to do yard work. The police do
ask, however, for residents to
call them if this man comes to
their home.
"What the police want to do is
discourage him Gemperline said.
Lieberman said students
should just be aware there are
potentially dangerous people
out there.
"If somebody approaches
their house they should call the
police and report it don't open
your door for strangers Lieber-
man said.
Tar River and the surround-
ing area have faced problems
like this before. Gemperline said
that in past years, students have
felt sorry for people and did not
recognize the danger.
"1 know a girl who used to
leave things in her garbage
cans Gemperline said.
"That's just not safe
Lieberman also said students
should think twice before doing
favors for strangers, such as
giving people rides or money.
"If you try to help, these
people will take advantage of the
situation Lieberman said.
Students could help
alleviate problems like
this by being active in the
neighborhood. However,
because many students
change housing each year, it is
difficult for community watches
to recruit college students.
Lieberman sent out an off-
campus alert when she first
received an e-mail from Gemper-
line about this man. She plans
to begin sending these alerts for
future situations.
The Tar River Community
Watch stretches around Reade
Circle, 10th Street, the cemetery
and the river.

fh Safety Tips From Greenville Police
These are a few suggestions
that the Crime Prevention Unit
have to help you and your
community to become a safer
place.
1. If you see anyone that makes
you feel uncomfortable or
makes you think they are up to
something, call the Greenville
Police Department's non-
emergency number: 329-4300.
2. If you see this man In your
neighborhood walking around,
call the non-emergency number

can speak with him.
3. it anyone comes to you

money or to work in your yard,
tell them no and ask them to
leave your yard.
4. If this person is getting
pushy or aggressive, walk away
and call the police department.
5. If anyone comes to your door
that you don't know, do not open
the door. Ask the person what
they want without opening the
door. If the person still does
not sound legit, call the police
department.
6. Keep your eyes open for your
neighbors as well. If you see
someone In your neighbor's yard
that does not belong there, call
the police department's non-

Death toll in Iran earthquake rises to 500
A man mourns over loved ones
SARBAGH, Iran (API �Rescue
teams using dogs and heavy
machinery pulled more bodies
from the ruins of flattened vil-
lages in central Iran on Wednes-
day, raising the death toll from a
powerful earthquake to at least
SOO. The number of dead was
expected to climb even higher.
Teams were hampered by bad
weather and ti;e mountainous
terrain, working in a cold, heavy
rain after a night in which tem-
peratures dropped below freezing.
Mohammad Javad Fadaei,
who died in the earthquake,
deputy governor of Kerman prov-
ince, said more bodies had been
discovered. "The death toll is now
500, and there's a possibility that
the figure will increase he told
The Associated Press.
Tuesday's magnitude-6.4
quake affected an estimated
30,000 people in several small
villages and many survivors were
left homeless, living in tents and
surviving on food rations.
Search efforts were concen-
trated in the remote villages of
I lotkan, Sarbagh and Dahoueieh,
which rescue workers had the most
difficulty reaching. Rescue efforts
were finished in other villages.
Zehra Mirzaei, 18, looked
around her after being pulled
Wednesday out from under the
rubble in Hotkan.
"This is not my village, this
is not Hotkan -1 wish 1 had died
with the others she said, beat-
ing her head and chest in grief.
Iran's supreme leader Aya-
tollah Ali Khamenei offered
his condolences Tuesday to the
families of the victims and urged
rescue workers to speed up their
efforts.
"I extend my deep grief and
sorrow over the deaths of several
hundred fellow countrymen
and injury of a large number of
citizens Khamenei said in a
statement carried by the official
Islamic Republic News Agency.
President Mohammad Khat-
ami also offered the nation his
condolences and called upon offi-
cials to provide the Cabinet with
reports on relief operations.
The Iranian Army said a
crisis center has been established
to assist with relief and that a
number of aircraft had been
used to haul aid from Tehran to
Kerman airport.
The Japanese government
announced Wednesday in Tokyo
that Japan would send blan-
kets, tents and other aid worth
$191,400 to aid quake victims.
"It has been raining and
gotten cold there and many
houses collapsed. The victims
have been forced to live insuffi-
ciently Chief Cabinet Secretary
Hiroyuki Hosoda said, hinting
Japan may provide additional
support. "We would like to moni-
tor the situation and talk further
with the Iranian government
Some 40 villages were dam-
aged in the quake, which struck
a region 150 miles from Bam,
site of a devastating earthquake
in December 2003 that killed
26,000 people and leveled the
historic city.
The quake was centered on
the outskirts of Zarand, a town of
about 15,000 people in Kerman
province about 600 miles south-
east of the capital Tehran, Iran's
geological authority said.
Though comparable in
strength to the 6.6-magnltude
Bam quake, Tuesday's quake hit a
more sparsely populated area and
was centered far deeper - some 25
miles compared to six miles for
Bam - limiting the damage.

Jury selected for Jackson trial
Jackson arrives at Santa Barbara County Supreme Court.
(AP) SANTA MARIA, Calif.
� Well ahead of schedule, a jury
was selected Wednesday to decide
Michael Jackson's fate on charges
that he molested a teenage boy at
his Neverland Ranch. "We have
a jury Superior Court Judge
Rodney S. Melville announced.
The panel consists of four men
and eight women, ranging in
age from 20 to 79. The racial and
ethnic breakdown appeared to
be: seven whites, four Hispanics
and one Asian. After the jury was
sworn in, attorneys moved on to
the selection of eight alternate
jurors. Jury selection had been
expected to last several weeks,
but took only five court days,
which were interrupted by a one-
week break due to the death of
an attorney's sister and another
one-week break because Jackson
was hospitalized with flu-like
symptoms. Selection moved at a
fast pace when the judge imposed
tight time limits on how long
each prospective juror could be
questioned. Among the jurors
were a woman who said her
grandson was required to register
as a sexual offender because of a
crime - a woman who said she
was related to the pilot of Flight
93, one of the planes that went
down on Sept. 11 -a 20-year-old
man who likes "The Simpsons"
TV show - and a man who is
interested in Western art and
country music. One of the jurors
had been asked during selec-
tion if he recognized celebrity
witnesses in the case including
self-help guru Deepak Chopra.
He responded, "I think he's a
rapper
The 46-year-old singer is
accused of molesting a 13-year-
old boy, plying him with alco-
hol, and conspiring to hold him
and his family captive. During
questioning, defense attorney
Thomas Mesereau Jr. asked pros-
pects about their interest in the
arts, their feelings toward Jack-
son, and whether they believed
child witnesses could be led to
lie. The defense will argue that
the mother of Jackson's accuser
has told him to lie. Senior Deputy
District Attorney Ron Zonen's
questions included whether
prospects were fans of Jackson,
and whether they had seen a
recent Fox News interview with
Geraldo Rivera in which Jackson
said many of the news reports
about him are untrue.
Jackson took a moment after
jury selection convened Tues-
day to discuss the latest in a
series of elaborate outfits he
has worn to court, which often
include cravats, armbands and
emblems. He briefly answered
a reporter's questions about a
chain of sparkling ornaments
draped over a gold vest he wore
under his black coat. But he was
at a loss when asked to identify
a deer-like animal on the coat's
emblem. "My wardrobe guy puts
it together he said.

Attention ECU Sophomores
(Students who have completed 45-60 credit hours)
1
If at least 30 of your credit hours were completed at ECU (not
counting Math 0001 or 0045), you are required to complete the
Sophomore Survey
before you can pre-register for either Summer or Fall 2005
courses.
If your earned credit hours fall within these criteria you will
receive a message at your ECU Exchange email address asking
you to participate in the survey, and your record will be "tagged"
so that you cannot register until you have completed it. If you
do not receive the email notice, it means that the survey and
registration restriction does not apply to you.
If you are in the survey, as soon as you submit your survey
responses the "tag" will be removed from your record so that you
can pre-register. Registration staff can verify that your responses
were received and that the tag was removed.
The survey period is March 3 - April 25. During that period you
can complete the survey by going to the ECU "One-Stop" web
site, entering your ECU Exchange email userid and password to
sign on, and clicking on "Sophomore Survey" in the box labeled
"Surveys You can also access the "One-Stop" from:
Mendenhall Computer Lab, Wright Place Cafeteria, the Austin
Building, and Joyner Library East
Your initial email notice will have a link to the "One-Stop
During the survey period you will be sent a reminder email
message and later a postcard, if you have not yet completed the
survey.
Please complete the survey as soon as possible after the survey
opens on March 3rd-certainly before sophomore pre-registration
begins (shortly after March 28). This will also help you avoid
delays during pre-registration when the workload on ECU
computers is at a peak. All remaining tags for this survey will be
removed from the student records on April 26, the day after the
survey closes.

Accessorizing tips for
him and her
TOMEKA STEELE
SENIOR WRITER
Spring is on the way and with
it comes warmer temperatures.
It's time to start shopping for
spring and shed those heavy
winter trends for some light
funky styles. Spring is all about
accessorizing. Hairstyles, make-
up, perfumes and colognes, bags,
jewelry and spring footwear will
be the main staples in spring
fashion this year.
Contrary to popular belief,
it's not all about the outfit that
makes a fashion statement. With-
out the right bag, tie or hairstyle
an outfit can go from being nice
to nice last year. Hair is an acces-
sory so this spring you need to
use it. Turning on the television
one can see that for women it is
all about curly and wavy hair.
Curls are easy to maintain and do
not take much work. Once your
hair is curly it pretty much lasts
all week with low maintenance. It
is also better for the hair because
there is less heat used curling
the hair with hot curling irons
everyday.
To draw more attention to
your hair or outfit women should
choose a brightly colored pat-
terned silk scarf to tie around
their head. Hair scarves are an
easy way to spruce up a plain
outfit. A fresh flower worn in
the hair is like advertising spring
and is a wonderful accent to the
hair itself.
For men this spring hair is just
as important. The look for men
will be clean cut hair. This look
can be accomplished in many dif-
ferent ways but the main thought
to keep in mind is to keep it GQ.
A low cut fade or short cut hair is
in this spring. Using moose is way
out and messy yet maintained
hair is still in when it comes to
hot hair trends. Men should do
away with long side burns and
opt for the soft and clean edged
up style.
"Pink is definitely in for guys,
especially pink Polo's. However,
the popped collar thing was
never in. Also, brown leather san-
dalsflip flops are going to be ifi
as well. Its spring, so bright colors
and pastels should be worn, plus
they make your tan look good
said Glenn Lucas, sophomore
health education major.
Eyebrows are an accessory as
well to both women and yes
men too. If you have a uni-brow,
get it under control. Women
should focus more on natural
thick brows with some shape.
Over tweezing and razoring are
extinguishing rapidly. Thin pen-
ciled in brows have gone by the
way side. It is all about having a
shape and actual eyebrows.
This spring women should
keep their make-up light and airy.
Less is definitely more. Mascara
is the perfect way to accentuate
the eyes and is inexpensive and
quick. Instead of using basic black
eye liner, try colored eyeliner
to add a touch of spunk to an
outfit. Applying a dab of blush
to the check bones is an easy way
to look fresh and youthful but
don't overdue it. To finish daily
make-up off, try a soft pastel
colored lip-gloss or lip glass.
Lip glass by MAC is something
every woman must have this
spring. Men should always keep
some Chapstick handy for those
chapped moments.
Men love women who smell
good and vice versa, so for spring
find a scent that suits you. Men
should select something light
and sweet. Women should
choose scents in the citrus and
flower scented category. Light
musk's are always in both for
men and women when it comes
to colognes and perfumes.
Bags are necessary to compli-
ment any outfit. A big tote that a
girl could fit her life into is what
accessories are all about. There
are tons of bags out there with
flower prints and mixtures of
bright colors and patterns. Every
woman should have at least one
brightly patterned tote. It is the
perfect bag for spring day trips
and a cute way to carry books to
class without hauling an eight-
pound book bag. Men need bags

Caring for skin is one of
the most important tasks that
should be dealt with on a daily
basis. Being a girl or a guy does
not mean that you should or
shouldn't be taking care of your
skin. By not taking care of your
skin, you heighten the risk for
problems such as acne, rosacea,
psoriasis and skin cancer. Winter
is the time to take care of skin the
most so it will look healthy and
refreshed for spring and summer
months.

In an article on their Web
site, the American Academy of
Dermatology makes several sug-
gestions for caring for skin during
winter months.
"When the temperature out-
side drops and the temperature
inside riss, your skin is under
assault Low humidity, coupled
with heavier clothing and longer,
hotter showers and baths can
leave your skin feeling dry and
itchy said the article.
The article goes on to say that
by showering or washing your
face with warm instead of hot
water, your skin will not lose its
essential, natural oils. The oils
in your skin are what keep it
from drying out and becoming
unhealthy.
On another skin care Web
site, pioneer.com, there is an
article by famous Hollywood
make-up artist, Bob Sidell. Sidell
has been a make-up artist for 30
years and has seen it all. In his
article he offers advice on daily
skin-care regimens and easy
steps to keeping your skin at its
optimum.
"Caring for your skin requires
a daily regimen, a process you
repeat everyday, no matter what
said Sidell.
Sidell suggests four easy steps
that will take five minutes out
of your day. The first step is
to steam. Either using a facial
steamer or a warm cloth, cover
your face for one to one and a half
minutes. This step allows pores
to open and release toxins. The
next step is to cleanse. By using
a small amount of facial cleanser
and warm water make a lather,
being sure to wash both face and
neck. Rinse soap away with warm
water and pat dry thoroughly.
The third step is to tone. Apply a
small amount of an alcohol-free
toner to a cotton ball. Rub the
cotton ball over your face and
neck. The last step is to moistur-
ize: Using a small amount of face
lotion, apply lotion over face and
neck if needed. This easy five-
minute regimen is very simple
and aids in prevention of acne
and other skin conditions.
A daily regimen is not the
only key to successful skin. There
are many elements of daily life
that can make good skin go bad.
Stress, not drinking enough
water, not taking vitamins, bad
eating habits, not getting enough 5

MP3 players usher
in a new music era
GARY MCCABE
STAFF WRITER
In the beginning, there were
records and they were good. And
with this new format, music was
ripped from the clutches of con-
cert halls and opera houses and
brought into the home where
all could enjoy. By way of the
record, the world was brought
masterpieces like The Beatles'
Revolver, Bob Dylan's Blonde on
Blonde and The Beach Boys' Pet
Sounds and in turn, brought a
musical revolution.
However, times change and
so did the music industry. With
a demand for portability and
higher quality, the 8-Track cas-
sette replaced the record. Even-
tually the 8-Track would be
replaced by the audiocassette,
which would subsequently be
replaced by the compact disc.
The musical evolution con-
tinued in the form of the MP3
player, which came to light in
the late 1990s but is currently
at the height of its popularity.
Walking through campus, you
will undoubtedly see students
everywhere, shuffling from class
to class, while listening to their
portable music system.
Unlike CD players, which
only play the contents of what-
ever disc is inside, MP3 players
store music files, sometimes
thousands of them depending on
its capacity, on an internal hard
drive. No longer do you have to

Ways to keep your
mouth looking good
MEREDITH STEWART
STAFF WRITER
It's common knowledge that
carbonated drinks, smoking and
coffee, among other things, stain
your teeth. Instead of having
white teeth, these culprits turn
teeth yellow or sometimes even a
tint of brown. And not too many
people find that attractive.
So what can you do to make
your smile white again? Thanks to
modern science, fixing this prob-
lem has become easier than ever.
Teeth whitening (also referred to
as teeth bleaching) has become
the most popular way for dentists
to help their patients obtain the
smile they've always wanted.
This simple process consists of
a clear plastic tray that is filled
with whitening gel. It is then
placed over the patient's teeth.
The bleaching trays are worn
multiple hours a day, over a few
weeks. Before you know it your
teeth are shiny and bright. The
effects of this type of whiten-
ing can last indefinitely, but in
most cases a "satisfactory" shade
change is found to last 1-3 years.
Of course once initially whitened,
it's simple to "touch-up" your
teeth with additional bleaching.
And the most common question,
how much does this actually
cost? Well it's not exactly cheap,
but this process ranges anywhere
from $150-260.
Not really trying to spend
that much money? Whiten-
ing strips are an alternative to
brighter teeth at a lesser cost.
So what exactly are "whitening
strips?" They are thin, flex-
ible pieces of plastic that have
been coated on one side with a
thin film of hydrogen peroxide
bleaching agent. For the best
effect, the strips should be worn
30 minutes a day, twice a day.
This process should continue for
about two weeks. Compare $22
- 35 to the cost of bleaching and
we'll see which one you try.
"I used Crest White Strips
and they made my teeth whiter,
it's like a cover was placed on my
teeth said Ashley Yopp, fresh-
man political science major.
Another aspect of your mouth
that you should keep in mind is
your breath. No one wants to
get close with someone whose
breath is horrible. Certain foods
that contain garlic, onions or
are spicy, are absorbed into the
body and can cause one's breath
to smell awful. Most bad breath
originates from the surface of
the tongue, below the gum line,
between the teeth and other
hard to reach areas. So what can
you do to prevent this rejecting
characteristic? Be sure to brush
and floss at least twice a day.
Read the label on your tooth-
paste and make sure it contains
chlorine dioxide and avoid using
toothpaste with sodium laryl
sulphate. Use an oral mouthwash
with chlorine dioxide and drink
plenty of water.
Ever walked down the mouth
care isle in the grocery store and
noticed all the different kinds of
toothpaste? Aquafresh, Colgate,
Rembrandt and Crest, all these
types to choose from, so which
do you buy? Two things to con
sider are clinical effectiveness
and aesthetic appeal. Clinical
effectiveness basically means
"does it have fluoride?" Since
fluoride strengthens enamel, it's
essential in toothpaste. Tarter
control is another essential aspect
when choosing what's right for
you. From herbal to mint, cin-
namon to bubblegum, toothpaste
comes in a variety of flavors.
There's no right or wrong flavor
to choose, just be sure to look for

sleep and not using sunscreen are
things that can make your skin
unhealthy and prone to many
different conditions.
Stress can lead to bags under
eyes and premature wrinkles.
Pioneer.com recommends Lis-
tening to soft soothing music,
taking a stroll in the moon-
light, enjoying the company of
friends and diffusing an uplifting
aroma are efforts for relieving
stress.
The life of a college student
is stressful and good habits of
taking care of skin are often
overlooked or just not very high
on the priority list.
"The thing people fail to
do is moisturize and exfoli-
ate, said Jessica Odom, senior
apparel merchandising major
and former employee of Bath &
Body Works.
"They go hand in hand
Often overlooked is the
importance of sunscreen. Many
of those men and women who are
seen roaming around Greenville
with wrinkles at a young age did
not start protecting their skin
early enough. Everyone, guys
and girls, should make an effort
to wear at least SPF15 everyday.
Just about every kind of non-
comedogenic. non-pore clogging
moisturizer out there can be
purchased with sunscreen. For
the guys. Old Spice makes an
aftershave that has SPF15 in it,
is not greasy and smells great.

everywhere, in magazines and on
the runway Flower brooches are
perfect for spring Add one to a
light shawl or blouse to add some

Another jewelry staple for
women is the infamous cocktail
ring. Cocktail rings are huge and
gorgeous and a girl needs �r
one to spruce up a look. Any jew-
elry piece with a tribal look will
do this spring. Beads, jade and
turquoise create a light earths-
look perfect for breezy spring
weather. The tribal look with jew-
elry goes for men as well. Guys
should focus more on attempting
to keep the jewelry light instead
of huge chunky necklaces and
rings that blind people.
Finally, yet importantly, is
spring footwear. Spring is the
time to let those manicured toes
get back into the sunlight for
tanning. For men and women
flat shoes and sandals are in.
Flat leather sandals are comfort-
able and stylish in neutral, earth

Spring fashion from New York
(KKT)�Hold on to sour crushed
whet Bus- some glen plaid. Stock up
on patterned tights. .And pick up a
poufy skirt at the last of this year's
winter sales.
Those Hill be the key pieces for
building a wardrobe in the fall, as
the heavy hitters made quite dear in
memorable shows at the midpoint of
Fall 2005 Fashion Week.
Oscar de la Renta and Marc Jacobs
presented collections brimming with
lace, fur and suede. Betsey Johnson's
fun collection rolled out on a plaid
catwalk surrounded by saloon tables
Cynthia Steffe finally abandoned
her equestrian looks in favor of inno-
cent chiffon baby -doll dresses and
empire pants pulled from Russian
fairy tales. B. Michael presented his
collection of classy suits against the
backdrop of alive opera performance.
And Carolina Ilerrera offered elegant
tweed suits with chunky fur stoles.
Next winter's fashions will be
extensions of this fall's looks: lace
skirts, brocade jackets, tweed suits
and cashmere pea and wrap coats.
But instead of using bright pops
of color, designers toned it down,
showing deep bordeauxs, rusts,
mustard yellows, sage greens and
navy blues.
The shimmer came from the
fabrK. pearlized buttons and zippers,
not from jewels.
"These collections are softer. I
like the Victorian feel to them said
Tom Marrotta, of Philadelphia sSaks
Fifth Avenue, as designer Monique
Lhuillier s audience scattered from
the Bryant Park tents.
Most fashionable among bags
will be laptop-size numbers that can
be shing over the shoulder, made
from corduroy, crushed velvet and
python fringe. Ponytails will be
high again. Heels will be too, but
open-toed or dosed, the shoes must
be metallic.
Hold on to that bolero-style
sweater you thought you'd use for
only one season. And note what
these designers envision.
Oscar de la Renta - The de la

"It takes just two words to

thousands of songs, create play

BusinessWeek about the appeal

"The iPod isn't the smallest

the usability threshold on all

The iPod isn't perfect though,
and there are many features that
would steer potential buyers
toward other players. First and
foremost, as mentioned previ-

A 40GB iPod, which holds nearly
10,000 MP3s, costs $400. The
40GB Creative Zen Nomad, on
the other hand, costs around
$250 and can hold double that

WMA music files, which Apple's

There is one glaring problem
with iPods that even fervent
owners do not realize. The Apple
iPod has an internal rechargeable

battery serviced is by shipping

healthy, white and fresh, what
about straightness? Many college

but for all those people out there
who never had those nasty metal
braces and their teeth are still a
little out of place, there is a rela-
tively new alternative. Invisalign,
the clear alternative to metal
brackets is just that, clear. This
new system eliminates the need
for picking food out of your teeth,
getting cuts on your lips and the
worry of a "bracket" popping
off. This system, which uses a
KELSY HENNE
series of clear, removable align-
ers, gradually straightens teeth
over time. The c6st is comparable
to conventional metal braces
and the results are just as good
and much less ugly. The best
part about this new treatment is
that a computer simulation will
show you what your teeth will
look like when the treatment is
done.

Skin Care
from page B1
sleep and not using sunscreen are
things that can make your skin
unhealthy and prone to many
different conditions.
Stress can lead to bags under
eyes and premature wrinkles
Pioneer.com recommends "Lis-
tening to soft soothing music,
taking a stroll in the moon-
light, enjoying the company of
friends and diffusing an uplifting
aroma are efforts for relieving
stress.
The life of a college student
is stressful and good habits of
taking care of skin are often
overlooked or just not very high
on the priority list.
"The thing people fail to
do is moisturize and exfoli-
ate said Jessica Odom, senior
apparel merchandising major
and former employee of Bath &
Body Works.
"They go hand in hand
Often overlooked is the
importance of sunscreen. Many
of those men and women who are
seen roaming around Greenville
with wrinkles at a young age did
not start protecting their skin
early enough. Everyone, guys
and girls, should make an effort
to wear at least SPF1S everyday.
Just about every kind of non-
comedogenic, non-pore clogging
moisturizer out there can be
purchased with sunscreen. For
the guys, Old Spice makes an
aftershave that has SPF15 in It,
is not greasy and smells great.
Those 30 seconds a day now
can be the difference between
smooth, soft skin or wrinkled,
leather skin later on.
By taking the time to con-
sciously eat well, de-stress, exer-
cise and drink the suggested
eight glasses of water per day,
the health of your skin could
be vastly improved. Now Is the
time to bite the bullet to ensure
healthier skin not only for good
practice but for the upcoming
"skin showing season Taking
care of your skin now can pre-
vent numerous problems later
in life. Don't forget, it was once
famously said, "Beauty is only

too. Instead of the classic book
bag, try a khaki colored shoulder
bag or briefcase.
Diamonds are a girl's best
friend but pearls are a spring
favorite. Pastel colored pearls can
perk up any collared shirt and
add a touch of class. Brooches are
everywhere, in magazines and on
the runway. Flower brooches are
perfect for spring. Add one to a
light shawl or blouse to add some
glitz and glamour to an outfit.
Another jewelry staple for
women is the infamous cocktail
ring. Cocktail rings are huge and
gorgeous and a girl needs only
one to spruce up a look. Any jew-
elry piece with a tribal look will
do this spring. Beads, jade and
turquoise create a light earthy
look perfect for breezy spring
weather. The tribal look with jew-
elry goes for men as well. Guys
should focus more on attempting
to keep the jewelry light instead
of huge chunky necklaces and
rings that blind people.
Finally, yet importantly, is
spring footwear. Spring is the
time to let those manicured toes
get back into the sunlight for
tanning. For men and women
flat shoes and sandals are in.
Flat leather sandals are comfort-
able and stylish in neutral, earth
tone colors. For an evening look,
ladies should try a rounded toe,
thick-heeled pump or the classic
peep toe pump. Trendy guys, for
an evening look, you should go
with a slender leather square toe
dress shoe.
"Brown flip flops will always
be in style because they're ver-
satile, just like white and black
said Laura Bielawski, freshman
English education major.

Spring fashion from New York
(KRT)�Hold on to your crushed
velvet. Buy some glen plaid. Stock up
on patterned tights. And pick up a
poufy skirt at the last of this year's
winter sales.
Those will be the key pieces for
building a wardrobe in the fall, as
the heavy hitters made quite clear in
memorable shows at the midpoint of
Fall 200S Fashion Week.
Oscar de la Renta and Marc Jacobs
presented collections brimming with
lace, fur and suede. Betsey Johnson's
fun collection rolled out on a plaid
catwalk surrounded by saloon tables.
Cynthia Steffe finally abandoned
her equestrian looks in favor of inno-
cent chiffon Iwfoy-doli dresses and
empire pants pulled from Russian
fairy tales. B. Michael presented his
collection of classy suits against the
backdrop of a live opera performance.
And Carolina I lerrera offered elegant
tweed suits with chunky fur stoles.
Next winter's fashions will be
extensions of this fall's looks: lace
skirts, brocade jackets, tweed suits
and cashmere pea and wrap coats.
But instead of using bright pops
of color, designers toned it down,
showing deep bordeauxs, rusts,
mustard yellows, sage greens and
navy blues.
The shimmer came from the
fabric, pearlized buttons and zippers,
not from jewels.
"These collections are softer. I
like the Victorian feel to them said
Tom Marrotta, of Philadelphia's Saks
Fifth Avenue, as designer Monique
Lhuillier's audience scattered from
the Bryant Park tents.
Most fashionable among bags
will lie laptop-size numbers that can
be slung over the shoulder, made
from corduroy, crushed velvet and
python fringe. Ponytails will be
high again. Heels will be too, but
open-toed or closed, the shoes must
be metallic.
Hold on to that bolero-style
sweater you thought you'd use for
only one season. And note what
these designers envision.
Oscar de la Renta - The de la
Renta team started with loosely
tailored tweed and brocade suits.
Models wore their hair pinned up,
and glided down the catwalk to clas-
sical music. A soft green-and-brown
cashmere skirt and sweater in glen
plaid made a smart work outfit. A
brown cashmereangora coat draped
the model beautifully.

Plastic surgeries, negative reality TV
Are you the
'Biggest Loser?'
DANIELLE WIGGINS
STAFF WRITER
Ever had the desire to become,
"America's Next Top Model?" If
not, ever findyourselfwondering
if you could ever be one to want
plastic surgery? Have reality TV
shows just gone overboard? What
producers forgot to add are the
dirty side effects of each cast
member.
Reality television is all about
showing what may be appealing
and entertaining to the audience.
The viewers are not always told
the whole truth. In reality, how
do these television shows help
us? Weight loss has become a
common priority to Americans
and the media has a lot to do
with this influence. 1 lave weight
loss shows like, "The Biggest
Loser" and "Celebrity Fit Club"
motivated people to actually
lose weight? In each show, the
cast members are faced with
temptations that challenge their
determination.
" Viewers see weight loss shows
as entertaining and humorous,
but if those cast members make
positive lifestyle changes, it gives
others the encouragement to
work to lose weight also said
Sam Combs, assistant director of
fitness and lifestyle enhancement
at the ECU Student Recreational
Center.
Sometimes the shows fail to
follow up on the cast members,
months after they have taken
on healthier habits, making the
audience wonder whether the
show really helped this person
at all. Makeover stories are all the
same, people will always look for
improvement and professional
stylists and fashion consultants
to tend to their needs for an epi-
sode, all for those IS minutes of
fame. After the fixing and prim-
ing, the person will go back to his
or her usual lifestyle, leaving with
an outfit and a few beauty tips
that may be difficult to repeat.
"They endure painful and
sometimes risky reconstructive
surgery to look like their favorite
celebrity said MTV about their
show, "I Want A Famous Face
For what reason may that be?
Society has set the standard as to
what beauty really is. J-Lo, Brad
Pitt, Britney Spears, everyone
wants to look like them and take
desperate measures for this to
happen. Television shows like,
"The Swan" and "Extreme Make-
over" have high paid surgeons to
change one's physical appearance
permanently. Years, even months
after those operations, people
regret to see that surgery cost
them not only time and money,
but negative changes in their
body, giving viewers a reason to

A see-through black organza

Betsey Johnson - This col-

Guinness and, true to form, did

- 9to-5ers need not apply. But for
all their eccentricities (sequins and a

colorful beaded necklaces with glittery
gold, belted trenchcoats and snake-
print flared charmeuse dresses. A
Mack tulle skirt (yes, tulle) with chiffon
camisole and cardigan was fabulous.

think long and hard before decid-
ing to have plastic surgery.
"Plastic surgery is not the way
to go, people should first and
foremost learn to accept them-
selves and then work on improv-
ing body image Combs said.
People spend a large percent-
age of their time worrying about
their images. Media often has an
impact on society's self image.
"It doesn't take a reality TV
show to make you leaner or stron-
ger, all it takes is simple healthy
living to make that difference
Combs said.
Most reality TV shows are
there for simple entertainment,
whether you see their conse-
quence or not, you should always
make the best decisions for your-
self. Motivation and persistence
is all you need because life is
already a reality show.

Emotional night capped off by Pirate W
Hardwood Bucs defeat Southern

j "I am a basketball coach. I don't want to do any
either job. I don't want to work in any other depart-
ment. Coaching is my life
; ECU head basketball coach, Bill Herrion, recently
ajiked to relinquish his position with the team at
the-end of the season, had plenty to say about
the past few days in
His life at the post
game press confer-
ence following the
vfin over Southern
Mississippi. How-
ever, when all was
lid and done and
Herrion delivered
liis closing com-
ments, he wanted
to remind the media
and the ECU nation
ofwhat was most
important and the
present time.

Making sure that coach Herrion would not
leave the gym with something else negative on
his mind, Corey Rouse, Tom Hammonds and Mike
Cook combined to score 33 second half points
and lead the Pirates past Southern Mississippi in
convincing fashion 77-66. With just more than a
minute remaining, a 35-foot heave from Cook as
the shot clock expired found the bottom of the
net and sealed the deal on the Pirates' ninth win
of the season.
"We don't want to backdoor our way into the
tournament Herrion said on his team's efforts to
make the C-USA tourney.
"We want to

that is by winning.

Rouse lead the
Pirates once again

monster perfor-
mance, scoring 21
and grabbing 13
rebounds. He con-

game up the total
toll.
Cook and Ham-
monds finished with 19 and 15 respectively while
Moussa Badiane, who will play his final game at
Minges Coliseum this Saturday against Houston,
finished up with 13 points and 13 rebounds.
The Pirates played solid basketball in the second
half, including a run in the second half that broke a
tie between the Pirates and Golden Eagles for good.
Knotted at 51 points each, McNeil received the ball
behind the arch and hit a three-point bomb, which
sparked a flurry of ECU three-pointers. Hammonds
and Cook hit two more from downtown directly
after, making a 9-2 run. Cook put the exclama-
tion point on the barrage with one more from way
downtown when he heaved up a 32-footer as the Jj
shot clock ran out. The 6-foot 4-inch guard buried js
the shot and strolled off to the sidelines with a grin
splitting his face ear to ear. fl
This was clearly the Pirates' night. �S

Maniacs enjoy home
win, honor Herrion
ERIC GILMORE
SENIOR WRITER
Just a day after he was given
an ultimatum for his job, Bill Her-
rion had both hands full during
his post-game interview. In one
hand, he had a towel to wipe the
sweat off his face. Attached to the
other arm was a basketball.
Herrion's perspiration was a
little bittersweet after the 77-66
victory over Southern Miss. So
was the basketball.
In a somewhat odd role rever-
sal, the loyal Minges Maniac sup-
porters etched their autographs
on the basketball. Herrion smiled
as the small contingent of fans
chanted his name.
"It felt nice said Herrion in
his thick northern accent.
"It feels nice to be appreciated
and wanted. I think the fans do
appreciate what we do here
The fans and students alike
have been sent into a state of
shock with the announcement
that Herrion had been offered
another job within the depart-
ment. Athletic director Terry
Holland tried to ease the shock
by speaking with students.
In a very informal manner,
Holland answered most ques-
tions directed his way and ironed
out any differences that students
have with his decisions. I le chose
to decline any comments directly
regarding the decision about
Herrion.
Holland did state, however,
that neither he nor assistant
athletic director Nick Floyd was
prepared to make an announce-
ment regarding Herrion's future
on Tuesday. The manner was
leaked to media sources and the
university was forced to address
the situation.
"I'm a basketball coach Her-
rion said.
"I don't want to do any other
job. That's all I know how to do
Assistant coach and Herrion's
best friend Greg Herenda joked
about the manner before the
game. He said that during high
school, a personality test told
him that he should be a farmer.
Herenda alerted a crowd of sup-
porters that he isn't planning on
being a farmer anytime soon.
"I was offered to become to
becomea fund raiser Herrion said.
"I'm not a fund raiser, I'm
a basketball coach. I want to
coach basketball. This is my life.
I've never done anything in my
professional life other than be in
gyms. I'm sure what it is, it's just
not enough wins
The fourth straight win In
Conference USA over Southern
Miss Wednesday night sweet-
ened the news. Herrion and his
team are focused on winning
the remaining games and head-
ing to the C-USA tournament in

J This Saturday will be Moussa
Byldiane's last home game as
a'tifate. After his illustrious
and record-breaking career, he
deserves to be honored. Sadly, his
recognition may be overlooked to
a certain degree.
Why? The reason for this is
rather simple. Tuesday afternoon,
Terry Holland decided to get rid of
MduSsa's coach Bill Herrion. The
guy"that brought Moussa to this
country before even seeing him
play In person will no longer be
the coach at ECU at season's end.
While I know his teams have
had trouble with close games and
on the road, Herrion is one hell
of a coach.
He brought in a guy like
Moussa who was on no one's
radar. People thought he was
crazy for recruiting a guy like
that. Four years later, Moussa's the
Conference USA shot block record
holder and is an NBA prospect.
And how about this freshman
class he has brought in?
Herrion has continually
brought talent to this program.

Athletic Director Terry Hol-
land was hired to make constant
difficult decisions regarding the
direction of E( lU's alhlct Ic depart-
ment. Though not a popular
choice amongst Pirate fans to fire
sixth-year basketball coach Bill
Herrion, it was a matter of time.
Herrion did not win consis-
tently in six years aboard the helm
of the hardwood Pirates. 1 leading
into last night's game against
Southern Miss I lemon's overall
record with the team is o9-96.
The problem is thai E I has
never had a tradition of win-
ning in basketball. The only
NCAA tournament invite was an
improbable one in 1993. Alico
Dunk, Lestor Lyons and company
did not have a winning record
while serving as a sacrificial 16
seed.
Herrion was a huge coup
when hired before the 1999-
2000 season. In replacing Joe
Dooley, Herrion brought in a
fresh attitude and a winning
resume. While spending eight
seasons at Dtexel, he compiled an
impressive 121-32 record and led
the Dragons to the NCAA tour-
nament three times. Herrion's
1996 team tallied an impressive

Bonds tired of old questions but still won't answer
Bonds answers questions during a press conference Tuesday.
(KRT) SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.
� The truth, according to Barry
Bonds, is that it's all my fault.
Mine and all the other worthless,
snooping reporters in the world
who keep asking him about
steroids.
Don't get cocky. The way
Bonds keeps pointing fingers at
everyone but himself, he might
blame you next.
The way Bonds sees it, the
media lies just for the fun of it.
We make stuff up. We make a
spectacle of the game.
We even - "gasp" - have the
temerity to venture into the
sanctity of his "office" and ask
him questions.
Would the president of the
Bank of America put up with
such nonsense? Of course not,
so why should Bonds have to
endure such torment?
Bonds obviously believes the
best defense is a good offense.
He arrived at the Giants' spring
training headquarters Tuesday
and immediately began pimp
slapping - figuratively, of course
- every sportswriter in sight.
There was no lack of targets,
considering there must have
been 75 to 100 of us crowded into
the back of the press box con-
verted into an interview room to
hear Bonds divert every critical
question regarding baseball's
steroids scandal.
Give him credit for this, at
least: Bonds grabbed a whip
and a chair and walked into the
lions' den without a whimper
of fear, putting lie to the rumor
that he would merely read a brief
statement and decline to take
questions.
He took them all right. And
he fired them right back.
Apologize, like Jason Giambi
did? For what?
"What did I do?" he asked.
"What did I do?"
What he hoped, of course,
was that his counterattack, his
red herrings, his obvious attempt
at intimidation, would stop us in
our tracks.
Not quite. We were still firing
salvos back when it ended after
35 minutes, but I can't say for sure
that Bonds had a scratch on him.
It's hard to hit a moving target.
Part of that was the result of
the ground rules laid out by the
Giants' PR staff: No questions
about the BALCO investigation.
Pending legal issues, and all that,
they explained.
That didn't keep "Denver
Post" baseball writer Mike Klis
from asking Bonds straight up:
"Have you ever, inadvertently or
otherwise, used steroids?"
"Why do you keep asking
the same questions?" Bonds
responded. "I'm not a child, OK?
You repeat things to children
Of course, the questions con-
tinue to be repeated because he
doesn't answer them.
Bonds didn't really answer
much of anything, though he
had plenty to say - most of it
venom aimed at the reporters
who vex him so.
"You guys are like rerunning
stories Bonds said. "This is old
stuff. It's like watching "Sanford
and Son It's almost comical,
basically Are you guys jealous,
upset, disappointed, what?
Probably all of the abovebut
that's beside the point, which
is exactly the position Bor&ds
wanted to take. We're upset'he
said, because he hasn't let us Into
his private world. We're angry,
he's told us, because he hain't
told us who he really is.
"I haven't given you guys
what you want he said. ;�
And if it's not that, ther it
must be because, with 703 hojne
runs, he's about to pass Babe
Ruth's 714 on the all-time home
run list.
"Because Babe Ruth is Jne
of the greatest baseball players
ever, and Babe Ruth isn't black,
either he said. "I'm blajk.
Blacks, we go through a lijtle
more I'm not a racist, though,
but I live in the real world. I'm
fine with that
And why all the fuss about,
steroids in the first place? WUrZ
aren't we worried about alcof$I

school in ACC country no matter
how much any of us hate it.
Knowing this, not wasting
recruiting time, not wast-
ing athletic funds, Herrion
recruited mainly out of state.
However, my favorite thing
about coach Herrion is the way
he has turned players around.
Look at a guy like Corey Rouse.
The beanpole forward is from
North Carolina and he Is
not at an ACC school, which
probably means ACC schools
didn't recruit him. Two and
a half years under Herrion
and he averages a double-
double in his junior year.
Herrion never tried to do
things with his players he knew
he couldn't do - he is a very
smart coach. In the I lerrion era,
ECU really hasn't had many
pure scorers or pure shooters.
Knowing this, Herrion focused
on defense and rebounding. In
almost every game, ECU has out-
rebounded their opponent and
made them shoot below their
season average.
While I know that coaching
is a results-oriented business,
you have to look at what this guy
has done.
In only four years of C-USA
play, he has beat Marquette
twice, including the year they
went to the final four. He took
out Rick Pitino and Louisville.
He beat Charlotte this season
(they are now ranked 21 in
the country) and most recently
won at UAB, an NCAA
tournament team from last
season.
Pros

ment win.
However, Herrion's wins at
Drexel never translated to wins
at ECU. His teams have compiled
a 16-45 mark in Conference USA
play. ECU is 3-27 away from
home. The lack of competition
away from Williams Arena at
Minges Coliseum has frustrated
Pirate fans beyond belief.
In his first three years, ECU
underwent a very difficult transi-
tion from the Colonial Athletic
Association to C-USA.
In Herrion's first season, some
controversy brewed within the uni-
versity when a player complained
that Herrion encouraged fights in
practice. I lerrion's practice tactics
were called into question, but
no reprimand ever materialized.
In Herrion's second season,
he enjoyed his best overall record
at ECU going 14-14 in 2000-01.
The team trailed off at then end
of the season after being near the
top of the conference standings,
mostly in part to an injury to star
player Evaldys Joeys.
Injuries, transfers and bad
attitudes have all taken their
tolls on Herrion's teams. Four-
teen players overall and four
within the last year have left
the program. Randy Barnes,
David Taylor, Steven Branch
and Jake Fugal all left Herrion's
earlier teams. Car accidents
and academics claimed Jason
Herring and Brahim Howard.
Jimmy Bishop was homesick.
Fred Primus had trouble with
grades. Devin Boddie and Jona-
thon Moore did not agree with
Herrion's playing style. Just
within the last calendar year,
academics erased frontcourt
players Keith Foster and Charles
The worst part of this
whole mess is that Herrion has
earned next season. He has
worked so hard for this program
building it to where it is now.
C-USA is a very tough conference
to play in. Finally, next season,
ECU will be a name in the
conference and will be picked
to finish in the top half of the
league. ECU might finally taste
its first basketball success in
recent years and yet Bill Her-
rion will not be on the bench
to enjoy it.
So let me get this straight, Bill
does all the work and some new
guy will come in and reap the
benefits of Herrion's hard work?
The firing of John Thomp-
son, while I didn't agree with
it, I understood it. There Is a
huge difference here. I just don't
understand this move. How can
Terry Holland fire a guy who
has worked so hard, done very
well (sometimes success is not
measured in a record) and loves
this program?
Who's next? If ECU baseball
goes .500 this season, I guess that
means that Randy Mazey is gone.
What if LaShawn Merrit doesn't
win the national title? I guess
that means coach Bill Carson
must go.
I support Bill Herrion.
I support ECU basketball. I
support ECU athletics. But alter
I heard this news Tuesday
afternoon, I have stopped
supporting Terry Holland.

Bronson. Belton Rivers was
unhappy with playing time and
Frank Robinson had to deal with
family problems.
Whether bad breaks or not,
player retention has been Her-
rion's problem during his stop
in Greenville. Losing Foster and
Bronson has caused the frontcourt
burden to be on Moussa Badiane
and Corey Rouse. The Pirates have
had to rotate so many freshmen
because of the loss of experi-
ence in Rivers and Robinson.
This season has been trying
for everyone. With losses at
Gardner-Webb, Western Caro-
lina and home versus Winthrop,
frustration has been at an all-
time high. Close losses at home
to South Florida, Old Dominion
and Cincinnati haven't helped
either. The frustration mounted
when the Pirates had Marquette
on the ropes only to let it slip
away due to missed free throws.
Even through it all, the Pirates
(8-17,3-10 C-USA) have their fate
in their own hands, sitting only
a half-game behind Tulane for
the final spot available in the
conference tournament.
Herrion has put forth every
ounce of energy he has into Jhe
ECU program. He helped bupld
the fictional Billville, sweats
through his purple blazer and
virtually paced a hole throtjgh
the floor on the sidelines. Hejvill
be remembered fondly forhis
contribution to ECU basketball.
But after six years, it's time to
stop meddling with mediocrity.
After all, Holland knows it's.jiist
a matter of time.

Niswander recognized by C-USA
Bonds
from page B6
(SID) � Dr. Frederick Niswander, the dean of
the college of business at ECU, has been awarded
the 2004-05 recipient of the Conference USA Award
of Excellence.
Niswander will receive the award during
Wednesday's men's basketball game between ECU
and Southern Miss. The award was established
by the Faculty Athletics Representatives in the
conference to recognize and celebrate a member of
the faculty or staff at each conference institution
who has made substantial contributions to the
institution and who has supported student-athletes
and the goals of intercollegiate athletics.
In order to receive this prestigious award, a
faculty or staff member must be nominated by
student-athletes and approved by the University
Athletics Committee. Niswander is a respected
professor in the college of business and was a strong
advocate for student-athletes in his role as chair of
the Faculty Senate.
As chair of the Faculty Senate, Niswander served
on the University Athletics Committee, bringing
particular enterprise and knowledge to bear as
the committee worked to address student-athlete
concerns regarding violations by faculty of the
University Excused Absence Policy. He has served
on faculty panels during the orientation for new Q
student-athletes dealing with strategies for the s
achievement of academic success.

"There are worse things going
on in the world he pointed
out.
Sure there are, but baseball's
biggest worry, especially with
Jose Canseco's tell-all book
receiving so much attention, is
the steroids scandal. Bonds was
fingered indirectly by Canseco
as a steroids user.
"I don't know Canseco,

Bonds said. "I don't put any
weight into what he says.
"1 was better than Jose then,
and I've been better than him
his whole career. If he wants to
go make money, go ahead For
somebody who brags about what
he did, I don't see any of your
records
Here's a stop-the-presses rev-
elation: Bonds is all for looking
ahead, not back.
"It's time to move on. Move
forward and let it go he urged.
"Ya'U stop watching Redd Foxx
and rerun shows
Cheat? Who, him?
"I don't know what cheat-
ing is he said. "I don't believe
steroids can help your eye-hand
coordination, technically hit a
baseball. 1 just don't believe it.
That's my opinion
Technically, he's probably
right. And his amazing gain in
muscle mass and exploding home
run production, much of it after
the age of 35?
"Hard work he shrugged.
"That's about it
Sure, and maybe a little "flax-
seed oil" applied in the right
places.
If there was a burgeoning
use of steroids all around him in
baseball during the 1990s, why,
he never noticed.
"I never paid any attention
to it, nor do I really care Bonds
said. "I worry about me, that's
