Book outlines
management of tourism
ELISA BIZZOTTO
STAFF WRITER
Dr. David L. Edgell, Sr pro-
fessor and the director of the
Institute for Tourism, has recently
written a book on the increas-
ingly popular topic of sustain-
able tourism. The book, entitled
Managing Sustainable Tourism: A
Legacy for the Future, discusses the
need for future tourism programs
to focus heavily on the balance
between environmental preser-
vation and maintenance of high
quality products.
Sustainable tourism, defined
by the Global Development
Research Center as an industry
which attempts to make a low
impact on the environment and
local culture, while helping to
generate income, employment
and the conservation of local
ecosystems, is a focus on the
balance between ecological and
cultural sensitivity. Because the
tourism industry is the largest in
the world, producing the most
earnings and providing the most
positions of employment interna-
tionally, the need for this balance
is imperative.
There are many benefits to
this approach on tourism regard-
less of which perspective one
assumes. Residents of high tourist
communities play a more active
role in the business because sus-
tainable tourism programs aim
to employ those most familiar
with the environment who can
also provide local services and
supplies. In addition, environ-
mentally aware travelers tend
to favor those businesses that
minimize excessive consump-
tion, waste or energy in order
to conserve resources. Thus, the
natural habitat and overall integ-
rity are maintained, preventing
communities from suffering
the "loved to death" syndrome.
Travelers consequently experi-
ence better trips and are encour-
aged to appreciate quality over
quantity. As a result, the volume

SGA accomplishing platform goals for 05-06
Platform items help
enhance the total
student experience
KIMBERLY BELLAMY
STAFF WRITER
The 2005-2006 SGA admin-
istration has accomplished many
of their goals they set out to
achieve including moving to a
more accessible office, completely
revising the constitution and
many other factors that will make
student life more fulfilling.
The new office, located in the
same area as the dining facility
previously known as The Spot,
was completed over spring break.
SGA executive officers relo-
cated to their new office home
on Friday, March 24. A ribbon
cutting ceremony was held to
mark the opening of the office
and to inform the students about
the new location.
According to M. Cole Jones,
SGA president, the office includes
a presidential executive area with a
conference table, personal offices
for executive officers, office space
for the administrative assistant
and workspace for students.
A list of the numerous accom-
plishments that SGA has made
is printed on the outside of the
windows of the offices as well.
Jones seemed very anxious
and optimistic about the outcome
of the relocation of the office.
"I'm very excited to be in an
environment where students can
see the quality work of the SGA
Jones said.
Jones explained that the
decision to change the location
of the office was made after con-
ducting verbal surveys to find
out how many students actually
had a sense of where to find their
executive SGA officers.
The survey also asked for
suggestions about how to make
students more aware of how to
locate these officers.
The results revealed that stu-
dents felt that SGA wanted to be
hidden from the student body
and that the office was very dif-
ficult to find.
"Two very common words
that continued to surface while
conducting the survey was
becoming more visible and acces-
sible Jones said.
When the vacancy of a more
visible, accessible area arose, SGA
took the opportunity to relocate.
The opportunity to change
their office space was presented to
SGA by Corey King, assistant vice
chancellor of student experience.
According to Jones, it was an
important goal of the SGA mem-
bers in the office to become one of
the first areas they see when enter-
ing Mendenhall Student Center.

Federal Reserve raises federal funds rate again
15th rise in rate since
June 2004
LEE SCHWARZ
STAFF WRITER ,
The economy is very strong,
according to what the Federal
Reserve has done in raising the
Federal Funds interest rate again
marking the 15th straight time
this has been done since June
2004. The rate is now at 4.75
percent, its highest level in five
years. Interest rates are raised to
avoid inflation and an economy
growing too fast for its own
good. Consumer confidence,
which was expected to be at 102,
is now at 107.2, the highest in
nearly four years. The increase
in the United States is in stark
contrast to that of New Zealand,
where consumer confidence is
very low. Consumer confidence
is a measure of the level of opti-
mism consumers have about the
performance of the economy.
Generally, consumer confidence
is high when the unemploy-
ment rate is low and GDP (Gross
Domestic Product) growth is
high. Considering that consumer,
confidence high, it is interesting
that President Bush's job approval
rating is so low.
Stocks and bonds fell on the
news with the Dow Jones falling
.76 percent. The Dow is now at
the highest level it has been since
1999 and 2000 with it seem-
ingly poised to be even higher.
Generally when an interest rate
increase is announced, stock and
bond prices go down as earnings
for stocks may suffer when a cor-
poration is forced to record more
interest expense on Its income
statement. Similarly, bonds go
down in price as well because
of competition from govern-
ment debt instruments. As U.S.
government bonds have no risk,
because it has never defaulted on
a single dollar of debt, corporate
bonds then produce a smaller
risk-adjusted return making
them worth less.
As the prices of these secu-
rities go down, buying oppor-
tunities emerge, and buying
opportunities will continue to
emerge as the Federal Reserve
will likely raise rates a few more
times. Leading brokerage houses
to comment on the increases,

opportunity to be nominated is
an honor in itself
He began the service with
brief, yet very impressive intro-
ductions and histories of each
nominee. Each one of the stu-
dents, ranging from freshmen to
seniors, has touched the lives of
either students, faculty or mem-
bers of Greenville's community
outside the university, or all of
the above.
There were four honorable
mentions: psychology major
Roger Connor, political science
major Mark Demerjian, psychol-
ogy major Joy Dismukes and the
Parliamentarian of Student Gov-
ernment, Benjamin Wyche.
Eleven of the 33 nominees

State
School secretary's secret Is out
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - By day,
Rachell Lindsay Wallace answers
phones and types memos at CA.
Johnson High School.
But for years, hardly anyone knew
about her secret life, cranking out
manuscripts in her pajamas at 5
o'clock on Saturday mornings.
Like many writers, Wallace dreamed
of publishing the great American
novel. But nobody wanted any of her
nine manuscripts and told her so in
countless rejection letters.
"It will crush you because you'll feel
like you're never good enough
Wallace said.
Her faith In God and the support
of her family kept her writing. But
she stopped trying to publish her
books, until a group of CA. Johnson
cheerleaders discovered them. They
told Wallace they thought the books,
Christian fiction about young women
overcoming challenges, had the
power to inspire.
The cheerleaders convinced Wallace
to give publishing one more shot. It
worked and she has a book and a
new confidence.
Today, Wallace keeps homemade,
spiral-bound copies of her other
novels tucked inside her desk at
CA. Johnson, where she is principal
James Taylor's secretary.
Her mother, Mary Lindsay Watts,
already envisions her daughter on
television. "I see her on Oprah Winfrey
already Watts said.
Possible legal battle looming
over tobacco settlement
WASHINGTON (AP) - A legal battle
may be looming between states,
including North Carolina, and tobacco
companies over money owed from a
landmark 1998 settlement agreement.
What's at stake could be more than
$1 billion.
An economic consulting firm
determined late Monday that the
agreement between the cigarette
companies and the states was a
"significant factor" in contributing
to a loss of market share for the
companies that signed on to the
settlement.
The report stated that the agreement,
which imposed numerous marketing
limits on the companies and required
billions of dollars in payments to
states, led to the erosion of their
market share to smaller manufacturers
that didn't sign on and generally sell
discount cigarettes.
That finding is one of several
determinations that would be
necessary for the tobacco companies
to reduce their annual payments to
states under the agreement.
The No. 1 cigarette maker, Philip
Mom's, declined Tuesday to comment
on whether it will seek to have its
payments reduced.
But Iowa Attorney General Tom
Miller and Idaho Attorney General
Lawrence Wasden released a joint
statement Tuesday saying the finding
by the Brattle Group, a consulting firm
tasked by both sides with looking
into the Issue of eroding market
share, should not lead to a reduction
in payments. The two head the
tobacco committee for the National
Association of Attorneys General.

Al-Qaida operatives deny
Moussaoul was part of 911 plot
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) - Two more
high-ranking al-Qaida operatives
cast doubt on whether Zacarias
Moussaoui was involved in the Sept.
11,2001, attacks, with one portraying
him as a misfit who refused to follow
orders, in testimony Tuesday at his
death penalty trial.
One terrorist, identified as Sayf
al-Adl, a senior member of al-Qaida's
Ceremony was held to feature the new North Recreational Complex
as part of the ECU Founders Week events in Greenville.

military committee, stated sometime
between Sept. 1, 2001, and late
July 2004, that Moussaoui was "a
confirmed jlhadist but was absolutely
not going to take part in the Sept. 11,
2001, mission "The 911 Commission
reported that the U.S. had recovered
from a safehouse in Pakistan a letter
written by al-Adl describing the
various candidates considered for
the Sept. 11 attacks.
Their testimony backs up the claims
of Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, chief
organizer of the 911 attacks. He said
in testimony read to the jury Monday
that Moussaoui had nothing to do
with the plot but was to have been
used for a second wave of attacks
distinct from Sept. 11.
Moussaoui said for the first time
Monday that he was supposed to
pilot a fifth plane in the 911 plot
and attack the White House. He had
previously denied a role in 911 and
claimed to be part of a different plot.
They rescued illegal immigrants,
and were arrested
TUCSON, Ariz (AP) - Emil Hidalgo-
Solis couldn't stop throwing up.
His diarrhea was bloody. His feet
blistered. He had staggered through
the desert, stumbled across the
border, gulped contaminated water
from a slimy cattle trough.
On this scorching day, in the hottest
July in local history, Hidalgo-Solis
seemed doomed to be among
hundreds who died trying to enter the
United States from Mexico last year.
He collapsed in a ditch. He and two
others among th'e 10 immigrants
could go no farther.
Sellz, a 23 - year -old former
Americorps volunteer who has
interned with an ecological preserve
in Ecuador and worked in food co-
ops, grows very worried when she
considers the prospect of 15 years
in federal prison.
Daniel Strauss, 24 and newly married,
is more sanguine. When he was in
college, he visited the U.S. - Mexico
border as part of a sociology course
on immigration. "I saw how hard
of a life it was for them, to make a
living, to be with their families. When
I found out what they had to go
through just to get into this country, to
make an honest living, it amazed
me he said.
This has been an exciting time, he
says. He's famous in the world of
migrants, his smiling face appearing
on Spanish-language television news
broadcasts so frequently that he's often
recognized at the immigrant center
where he works in Jackson, Wyo.
Both say regardless of the
consequences, they intend to return to
the Arizona next summer, and resume
their work with No More Deaths.
"I do not, in no way, think what we're
doing is wrong says Sellz.
International
1 million French take to the streets
PARIS (AP) - More than 1 million
people poured into the streets across
France and strikers disrupted air, rail
and bus travel Tuesday, even shutting
down the Eiffel Tower, in the largest
nationwide protest over a youth
labor law.
Scattered violence erupted in Paris,
and riot police used water cannons
and tear gas to disperse several
thousand youths who pelted them
with stones and bottles after an
otherwise peaceful march.
Police made 787 arrests around the
country, 488 of them in Paris, National
Police Chief Michel Gaudin told The
Associated Press. Injuries in the capital
were tallied at 46 demonstrators and
nine police officers.
Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy later
invited some 200 police officers, some
still wearing their protective gear, to the
Interior Ministry for wine and snacks.
"I'm proud of you he said. "Mission
accomplished
The State Department advised
Amencans in France to avoid areas
where crowds were expected to
gather and to exercise caution,
particularly at night.
"We are here for our children. We are
very worried about what will happen
to them said Philippe Decrulle, an
Air France flight attendant at the Paris
protest. "My son is 23, and he has no
job. That is normal in France
Sex, cash and bank secrets:
scandal brings down Brazil's
finance minister
RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil (AP) - Brazil's
government has been shaken by
a scandal involving prostitutes,
suitcases full of lobbyists' cash
and a violation of bank secrecy
laws that brought down the
finance minister.
The controversy has raised questions
about whether the departure of
the architect of Brazil's economic
recovery will prompt President Luiz
Inacio Lula da Sllva to swing the
country further to the left to get re-
elected this year.
Silva quickly named a replacement
Tuesday for the ousted finance
chief, Antonio Palocci. New Rnance
Minister Guido Mantega moved to
contain the damage by promising
economic stability and to stay the
course on Brazil's monetary policy
aimed at paying down debt and
taming inflation.
Still, the controversy shook investor
confidence: The Brazilian real
dropped nearly 3 percent against
the dollar and stocks on Sao Paulo's
benchmark Bovespa index fell more
than 1 percent in trading Tuesday.
Palocci's ouster Monday
deprives Silva, known popularly as
Lula, of a longtime ally, campaign
organizer and Cabinet minister who
had reassured investors by putting
Latin America's largest economy
on a course of slow and steady
growth.

The high level of consumer

Such an occurrence may indeed

Other possible threats to

Another bit of interest is the
U.S. Treasury yield curve is now
inverted at most maturities, a
trend that has often preceded a
recession as many retired persons
depend on income-yielding secu-

Despite past actions, which

man Bernanke and many others

SGA
from page A1
"It was advantageous for us to
make use of The Spot so students
will know, see and believe that
their SGA officers are truly leaders
at work to enhance their experi-
ence as a student Jones said.
Some other accomplishments
SGA has made this year include
the revisions of the constitution,
involvement in the implementa-
tion of music file downloading
and co-sponsoring the State
of the University Address with
Chancellor Steve Ballard.
This year's administration also
attempted to find ways to reduce
the cost of textbooks. They part-
nered with alternative book buy-
back. You can learn more about
this at campusbookswap.com.
Jones mentioned that there
is a possibility that posters
may be posted in various parts of
campus that include a complete
list of the accomplishments that
SGA has made this year.
"Although we began with a
deficit of $23,000 this year, we
were able to effectively accom-
plish the items on our platform
Jones said.
Some things to look for from
this administration are a possible
Dead Week and SGA member-
ship cards.
SGA researched and created a
survey for opinions about a week
prior to final examinations when
professors would not be allowed
to test students.
This would allow students to
focus on reviewing for their finals
and prevent students from having
several exams on one day.
This idea is currently in
the approval process and the
survey will be available on One-
stop before the end of the year,
according to Jones.
SGA membership cards were
distributed to the senate mem-
bers of SGA a few weeks ago at
one of their weekly meetings
held on Mondays.
The idea for the cards emerged
in a meeting of the executive
members this summer when
trying to think of possible tools
to create a more positive image of
SGA, according to Jones.
The cards include the
SGA contact information and
important campus numbers
that students should know such
as ECU Police, Health Services
and Financial Aid. The cards
will be available to the entire
student body. Students are
reminded that all students are
members of SGA under the new
constitution.
The cards will also provide
incentives for students. Stu-
dents are encouraged to keep
their membership cards with
them at all times in case an
SGA member approaches
them with the intent of giving
them a free T-shirt, tickets to a
campus event, food coupons or
other giveaways.
"SGA would like to give many
thanks to Chancellor Ballard, Dr.
Moore, Corey King, Kevin Seitz,
Jesse Battle, Melanie Bunch and
the entire Mendenhall staff for
making this happen Jones said.

Our View
Bad grammar, how are
we supposed to learn?
Guess who is tired of the English professors
having bad grammar? Yes, it's me. I would like
to get a degree that is well above pathetic,
and teaching an English class using phrases
like, "anyways" and "then what had he did?"
is not building on my skills in a positive way. I
have taken four English courses at ECU, and
so far, two of the professors had really crappy
grammar. I don't mean they were foreign; that
is perfectly acceptable. Who doesn't love an
accent? I'm saying there are professors using
words that are not words!
This place really does have a worse reputa-
tion than it deserves, though. It really is a good
school, but for someone like me who spends
each semester hovering over average in grades,
to get annoyed with people taking points off for
my grammar when they are speaking with the
tact of a child can really show you how annoy-
ing it can be.
I don't think they are trying to be obnoxious;
I think they are genuinely bad at speaking
English. Sure it's a difficult language with so
many words meaning the same thing, but
for the most part, America is not nearly as
advanced in learning linguistics as just about
every other nation.
I'm not saying I do speak clearly all the time.
I'm not even saying I form an acceptable sen-
tence every time I speak. I am an advocate
of saying "anyways" from time to time. I just
think that if it is your job to teach English, then
you should be able to do that without saying,
"Then what we will have did" and at least try
to make sense when it is, after all, your area
of expertise.

Pirate Rant
MAD COW MEETS BIRP FLU
Opinion Columnist
Paris and its absurd sense of entitlement
And I'm not talking about
some rich socialite with VD
GARY MCCABE
BITTER BOULEVARD
In the past however many
years, disliking the French has
become about as cliche as a Goth
kid loving coffee. It isn't that the
contempt for the European nation
isn't warranted - in fact, it's quite
justified when you consider the
ramifications of the Oil-for-Food
scandal, the snobby demeanor of
the French people and the coun-
try's insistence on being a major
world player despite their inability
to not lay down for Adolph Hitler
during World War II.
The French have the absurd
sense of entitlement the likes
of which has only been seen in
blonde hotel heiresses and Starr
Jones, whose head is enormous
both literally and figuratively.
That being said, I typically try
to avoid following such cliches
as French-bashing.
I've avoided the issue in past col-
umns. I never succumbed to calling
my favorite side dish "freedom fries
I've never disparaged the practice of
eating snails. I never supported Bill
O'Reilly's boycott of the country
(actually, in strict accordance with
the old Arab proverb that "the
enemy of my enemy is my friend
technically that would make the
French my "bestest" friends in the
whole wide world.)
However, I'm jumping on the
"Screw France" bandwagon because
of an alarming series of events cur-
rently unfolding as I type this column.
Before I delve into them, though, I'd
like to first set the scene.
France has an inane set of laws
which essentially make it difficult
- if not impossible - for a busi-
ness to fire any worker they hire.
I suppose the thinking is that if a
company cannot fire somebody,
nobody would ever be out of
work. Maybe it's my capitalistic
upbringing or it's just common
sense, but in theory, that system
seems doomed to fail miserably.
In reality it failed miserably.
The unemployment rate in
France ol hose 25 years and
younger is a staggering 23 per-
cent. Judging from those num-
bers, it's a safe assumption that
most French companies would
rather hire somebody with a
great deal of experience (or no
one at all) than be handcuffed
not only to a worker who can't
be fired, but a worker who knows
they can't be fired.
Look at our government work-
ers here in the United States who
work under a similar system.
Granted, they do a good job for
the most part, but they don't have
that fear of God that makes them
go the extra mile - or at least the
expected distance. That's prob-
ably why I had to spend two hours
at the Social Security office in
New Bern last week just to request
a new card, which still takes 2-3
weeks to come by mail.
The system breeds low produc-
tively and an even lower bottom line
- and France now recognizes it as
recently, they passed a series of laws
making it much easier for a company
to fire workers on their first job who
just aren't working out.
Now, if I were a recent college
graduate looking to enter the work
force in France, I'd be thrilled with
these new laws. If some company
could now fire me, they would
have more incentive to take a
chance in hiring me as well, giving
me the opportunity to prove my
worth to them. And while I may
not be a genius like Alexander
Hamilton in such matters, these
laws will ultimately lead to more
jobs for the youth of France who,
as I've stated previously, are find-
ing it tremendously difficult to
find work.
1 guess that's why I'm having
such difficulty grasping why young
French students are taking to the
streets in protest of these reforms,
flipping cars and setting fires in
anger at the prospect of a life not
handed to them. After all, seeing as
how many of these students attend
(or attended - the school has since
closed in light of recent events) the
Sorbonne, the French equivalent to
England's Oxford or our Harvard
University, this is a rebellion of the
privileged class, not the poor work-
ing class who actually benefit greatly
from these reforms.
If this were an uprising of the
oppressed peoples of France, I'd
jump on the bandwagon and call
for Prime Minister Dominique
de Villepin's head. The fact is,
these students aren't fighting for
equality as they pretend - they're
fighting to retain the inequality
of the French economic system.
Should hiring be encouraged and
subsequently, degrees from pres-
tigious universities be devalued,
these rioters would have to make
it on their own merit (a frighten-
ing concept for many of them.)
These students would be
satisfied with the system of old
- that they earn a degree from the
Sorbonne, get a job on the basis
of where they went to college (not
on the basis of their abilities) and
put life on cruise control.
They want the system of old in
place, despite the fact that it's that
very system that will prevent them
from getting any job at all. Is having
no job preferable to having a less-
than-perfect one? There's a lyric in
a Bright Eyes song that says, I'd
rather be working for a paycheck
than waiting to win the lottery The
context is different, but the message
is certainly applicable to the French
rioters.
I take it for granted that I live in
the United States - especially now as
I'm set to enter the workforce, terri-
fied of the competition for my first
job. But that's why the American
system is so successful. Instead of
rioting and protesting, the only way
for me to succeed in this country is
to better myself. If the United States
was a welfare state like France or Ger-
many and handed everything to its
people, it would be great - however,
it would do so at great cost.
These riotous French students
should take notes. France never
conquered the world. The United
States did.
In My Opinion
(KRT) Yes, it was shocking
to see Terrell Owens, the tal-
ented pass-catching villain who
tromped on the Dallas Cowboys
star, join America's Team.
But there's suddenly another
oh-my-gosh, can't-believe-it
development that jaded observ-
ers of Washington politics might
consider equally stunning: Con-
gress seems to be seriously tack-
ling a highly controversial and
complex issue - illegal immigra-
tion - in an election year.
Lo and behold, members of the
polarized body even appear to be
showing some legitimate bipartisan
cooperation on the powder-keg
issue, arguably the most combus-
tible topic in politics today.
Oddly enough, that might
be precisely why members of
Congress finally appear to be
addressing the issue in earnest.
They've heard loudly and clearly
from red-faced constituents
demanding that America secure
its borders and stanch the flow
of illegal immigration. Pro-immi-
grant forces have responded with
spirited salvos of their own.
The issue is so white-hot that
many members of Congress fear
that simply ducking it - the boiler-
plate election-year modus operandi
for a governing body often lacking
in backbone - would be political
suicide this time around.
We'll probably find out a lot
more this week about whether
Congress truly plans to address
immigration reform seriously
before the November elections.
Beginning Monday, March 27, dis-
cussions on specific reform legisla-
tion are expected to resume in the
Senate Judiciary Committee. The
debate could move to the Senate
floor as Senate Majority Leader
Bill Frist, R-Tenn a likely 2008
presidential candidate, presses for
action on his own bill.
The House of Representatives
passed a bill in December that
focuses on hard-nosed enforce-
ment. Some provisions are overly
harsh and extreme, including
plans to build double-layered, rein-
forced fence along 698 miles of the
U.S-Mexico border at an estimated
cost of $3.2 million per mile. The
House bill ignored President Bush's
call for a guest worker program
and didn't offer any prospect of
amnesty for illegal immigrants
already in America.
That leaves it up to the Senate
to take the initiative by engaging
in a calm, rational, thorough
debate that eventually leads to
congressional passage of worthy
reform legislation.
Congress should seek a sensible
middle ground that includes an
amnesty program for a substantial
portion of illegal immigrants. It
would be both Impossible and
cruel - as well as detrimental to
the U.S. economy and our global
image - to round up and deport
an estimated 12 million illegal
immigrants. Many are good, hard-
working people with the potential
to become solid U.S. citizens.
On the flip side, illegal immi-
grants - who often work for abys-
mally low pay and under sordid
conditions - have pushed down
wages and marginalized job
prospects for millions of low- and
moderate-income working-class
Americans who are here legally.
Taxpayers have absorbed a rap-
idly growing bill for education
and healthcare for illegal immi-
grants and their children.
We need to curb further
illegal immigration drastically
and enhance homeland security
by tightening our borders and
establishing a tamper-proof ID
system to ensure that, going for-
ward, employers hire only those
who are here legally.
We probably will need to boost
the numbers of immigrants granted
temporary visas and gTeen cards to
live and work in the United States
(particularly with baby boomers
soon retiring in droves). We also
should elevate the federal minimum
wage, unchanged at $5.15 an hour
since 1997, to at least $6.50 to $7.
Some xenophobic Americans
might find comfort in simple math.
The U.S. population soon will top
300 million. If there are 12 million
illegal immigrants here, that means
only one in 25 persons in America
are undocumented - and many of
those here illegally are energetic,
industrious people who are assets
to their communities.
Now let's see if Congress is
sufficiently responsible and cou-
rageous to pass comprehensive,
fair and compassionate immigra-
tion reform in an election year.
If Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry
Jones can give Terrell Owens the
benefit of the doubt, perhaps we
owe the same to Congress.
If you absolutely, positively cannot stand and truly
hate TEC, why are you bothering to write a Pirate
Rant? And furthermore, you're probably going to
pick up TEC and see if it has been published. Good
job with your TEC hating.
Thank you to the guys on the second floor of White
Hall who offered the girls of Clement Hall a place
to stay. We loved seeing your colorful posters while
the chaos ensued outside. You are our knights in
shining armor!
To the girl who remained in Clement Residence Hall
on the ninth floor while the building was on fire
next time, please get out on time. Watching you
freak out because you ignored the fire alarm was
hilarious, but the fact that you could've been hurt
! isn't. Try to obey the rules next time, and remember:
j stop and roll!
To whomever doesn't know how to avoid burning
their butts in the tanning bed: try sun block or
use a stand-up bed. I prefer stand up beds anyway
' because no matter how many times I clean it, I imag-
ine someone else's sweaty naked butt laying on the
tanning bed. Just better hygiene.
Why do they even have computer lab assistants in
Speight? Half the time they are not where they are sup-
posed to be and when they are they're no help. They
don't even keep rude people from loudly talking on
their cell phones while you're trying to type a paper!
To every guy who has ever come across my path and
it hasn't worked out for your own "reasons, I would
just like to let you know that one day you are going
to look back and realize that I was the best thing that
ever happened to you.
I'm against roommates who don't take out the trash!
I know your momma taught you better than that.
Where were guys like you before I found my husband?
Your opinion article on cheating was so on target!
Thanks for trying to make the situation better for
one girl who was hurting.
M. Cole Jones is hot! But that isn't why I voted for
him; it's because he is experienced and he has a
beautiful personality.
Why rant about someone having an opinion about
j your rant? Can't we just be happy that there are
i people out there with opinions of their own and they
I actually picked up a newspaper of sorts?
Walking through Wright Place around lunchtime
j freaks me out! This week has been especially bad.
Even when I'm on the phone, I am still harassed
by at least three groups of people who are roaming
; around promoting something. Have mercy, I just
i want to get my lunch!
I wish I knew if the guys that I dated were only out for
"getting some" or irtney wanted a relationship.
j To the girl driving the red Mustang Wednesday at 10
a.m. at the Greenville Blvd. and Elm Street intersec-
j tion, learn how to drive. You nearly killed the man
I on the bike, then you kept driving down the street
as if nothing happened.
t Two weeks ago, I sent in a rant complaining about
! having to wait 40 minutes for Safe Ride. Well I'm glad
j to report the last two times I've called them, I haven't
j had to wait more than 10 minutes total for them to
show up. That's from the time I called them to the
time I was in the van. Whatever changes they've
made to Safe Ride, keep it up!
Isn't it funny how some fraternities and sororities
claim to be changing the world by volunteering for
various organizations, and yet they waste millions
of perfectly good bed sheets every year?
It costs almost $6 for a box of Lucky Charms at Reade
Street! That's ridiculous! Maybe they can use all of the
money from overcharges at dining places on campus
to make a new scholarship to replace the one the bas-
ketball team lost. It's bad enough to get blown away
every game by powerhouses such as UNCG (sarcasm),
but these guys lose in the classroom, too!
If you hate TEC that much, don't read it.
I've realized that I am much happier having the
love of my female friends than any immature col-
lege guy.
Girls, stop wearing men's undershirts as shirts. It
looks trashy and really unflattering.
Our Chancellor has stated that people with just a high
school diploma earn around $34,000 a year. Does
he realize that ECU pays less than that to full-time
Professional staff with a four-year degree? Why did
even go to college?
So when my car got a boot on it, I wanted to get so
angry at the guys who did it, but they were both
extremely cute and all I could do was smile.
Hey, TEC Sports Page. I have an idea! How about
instead of filling a third of your spread on a Western
Carolina University jersey retiring, you talk about the
NCAA March Madness - something all students are
interested in and is actually relevant. Thanks.
I want my spring break back. Please?
To the person who was complaining about people
from MD or NJ, or as you called us "Northerners. I
am pretty sure you learn where the Mason Dixon line
is in elementary school. Maryland is not a Northern
state. It is the first Southern state. I just thought
maybe you would like to know.
What makes you so sure of yourself? You think that
every girl is to bow down and you expect me to just
stick around while you decide who you want to date
or screw around with.
Sometimes I wish TEC actually would put my photo
beside the rant. Then everyone would Know exactly
where I stand. I'm not afraid for anyone to know 1
am the one they disagree with.
If I was a prospective minority student and I read the
Pirate Rant for a week, 1 would not even apply.
My bad, I guess you did have someone covering the debate.
People just told me no one was there and I didm see anyone
there. You guys were a day late on the story though.
I've got an idea for Campus Living: how about two
ply toilet tissue and soap that doesn't make my hands
feel like sand paper?
Pirate Rant is ruining my GPA. I spend more time
reading it and submitting my own rants than 1 do
on studying and listening in class!

Extended coverage of Clement Hall fire
Fire and a dramatic
rescue at Clement Hall
RACHEL KING
NEWS EDITOR
Around 3 p.m. yesterday,
residents of Clement Hall in the
West Neighborhood were roused
out of their daily routines by a
fire alarm. Upon evacuating the
building, they were stunhed to
see smoke rising from a third
story room.
This time, that alarm was no
drill. Greenville Fire and Rescue,
the ECU Police Department and
other emergency services crew-
members arrived on scene within
minutes in response to the fire,
and what unfolded thereafter
resembles a scene from an action
film.
After being ushered quickly
out of the building, both the
residents and gathering crowd of
students looked on as firefighters
battled the blaze within.
Rumors began to fly about
the source of the fire, but until
the Greenville Fire Department
releases its official findings, all
anyone can do is speculate.
"We heard that someone
had set a mattress on fire said
Kristie Pope, sophomore political
science major and Clement Hall
resident.
"The girl's roommate whose
room had caught on fire came
in, saw the bed on fire and began
to yell for help
What the growing crowd
did not seem to realize, at least
initially, was that on the ninth
floor, one Clement Hall resident
was stranded.
Rachelle Lowry, freshman
was first spotted moving from
room to room while trying to
attract attention to herself so
that she could be rescued.
After several minutes, she
took matters into her own hands
as she removed the screen out of
her window in an effort to get to
some fresh air. The smoke bil-
lowed out behind her as firefight-
ers fought their way up, floor by
floor, to reach her.
Simultaneously, firefight-
ers raised an extension ladder
from the back of their vehicle to
extract the young lady from the
smoldering building.
Lowry received support from
two firefighters in the smoky
room behind her and a fire-
fighter awaiting her on the ladder
as she climbed precariously from
the building to the ladder with-
out incident.
Upon securing Lowry on the
ladder, the large crowd below
raised a cheer of approval and
praise for her rescuers.
After climbing down the long $
extension ladder and flanked by
three firefighters, she was on the
ground again within minutes,
where she was given oxygen via
a mask, presumably for smoke
inhalation.
Around 3:45 p.m Lowry was
taken to Pitt County Memorial
Hospital to be treated for smoke
inhalation. Her condition is
unknown.
The other residents escaped
Clement Hall without any prob-
lems or injuries, although, for
some, it was a scary experience.
"I had just walked back from
class with the girl whose room
had caught on fire, and as soon
as I opened the door to the third
floor from the stairwell, I smelled S
V)
smoke said Erin Gamble, fresh-
man special education major.
"Someone said there was a
fire smoke flew everywhere
Clement Hall closed after
the fire. It is predicted that it
will open again, at least for some
students, sometime today if all
goes well.
"The fire damage itself was
contained to the room it began
in said John Durham, univer-
sity spokesman.
"There is, of course, exten-
sive smoke and water damage
throughout the rest of the build-
ing" ?
Durham confirmed that the P
room the blaze began in was j
room 317.
This writer can be contacted at
news@theeastcarolinian. com.
Students gather to watch the excitement in front of White Hall. Two firefighters climb up to battle the blaze that began in room 317.
Rachelle Lowry is led to an ambulance after being rescued.
A local news crew interviews students who saw all the drama unfold.
The ECU Police give displaced Clement Hall girls instructions.
Residents gather after the fire to pick up supplies from local Red Cross.

and government. His book aims
to set a standard for developing
tourism programs and challenges
them to find the balance between
the economic growth of the
industry and the integrity of the
cultures and environments that
are affected. While he encourages
these new standards, he suggests
there is no single model that has
universal applications. However,
Dr. Thoric Cederstrom, vice
president of Counterpart Inter-
national, finds Dr. Edgell's book
to be a highly useful tool. "This
book will become the reference
standard for future discussions on
sustainable tourism. With many
of the world's unique sites coming
under increasing demographic
and environmental pressures,
this book is a most welcome addi-
tion to this emerging field
Dr. Edgell's book was pub-
lished earlier this month through
Haworth Press Inc. Edgell will be
appearing at Barnes and Noble
Booksellers in Greenville on May
4 at 7 p.m. to announce his new
book. He will be speaking for 30
minutes and will then take ques-
tions for all those interested in
learning more about the book or
for those students contemplating
a career in the tourism field.

THE FAST CAROLINIAN NEWS

Researcher predicts future of preclinical cancers
i
(KRT) Richard Schilsky has
a recurring fantasy that cancer
will someday be a manageable dis-
ease, like diabetes. Maybe even a
curable disease, like strep throat.
X-rays and ultrasound - crude
imaging tests that detect tumors
big enough to be seen by the
naked eye - will be history. Blood
and saliva tests will be able to
discover genetic abnormalities
before they cause cells to start
multiplying out of control.
And doctors will have a stash
of molecular tools that can target
and destroy cancer cells selec-
tively, the same way penicillin
targets streptococcus bacteria.
One of the nation's foremost
cancer researchers, Schilsky is
methodically working toward
that day - a time when preven-
tion, early detection and suc-
cessful treatment of cancer are
commonplace.
"I predict that, IS years from
now, we won't be treating so
many advanced cancers Schil-
sky says. "Our focus will be
on treating preclinical cancers
- essentially, on prevention.
"That's where the field is
moving. If we're successful, fewer
cases will be diagnosed and out-
comes will be better. People will
die of something else
He should know. As a professor
of oncology and associate dean for
clinical research at the University of
Chicago, Schilsky, 55, is the princi-
pal investigator for nearly a dozen
clinical trials. But as chairman of a
cooperative cancer research group
known as CALGB, he's Involved
with about 100 ongoing trials at
any given time, with an additional
50 or so in development.
He commands a budget of
some $15 million per year, most
of it from the National Institutes
of Health. That's more than any
other medical researcher in the
state, and it puts him among the
top researchers in the country in
government grants.
Slowly, painstakingly, he has
helped build the body of knowledge
that informs how cancer patients
are treated today, and that offers
insights into how they will be
treated tomorrow. He has time for
little else. His wife, Naperville, 111
native Cynthia Schum Schilsky,
concedes, "He needs a vacation
In a clinic at the Univer-
sity of Chicago Hospitals one
afternoon, Schilsky moves from
room to room, checking on
about a dozen patients. Most
have advanced cancer and are
hoping to gain a few extra
months from an experimental
treatment. To each, he explains
that the new drug may not help
and could have nasty side effects.
"You're not doing patients a
service if you don't lay out real-
istic expectations says the New
York native, whose accent retains
a hint of Manhattan.
Schilsky is full of gratitude
and praise for the individuals
who volunteer for clinical trials,
which may be one reason patients
consider him a saint.
In a chemotherapy suite, the
doctor stops to see Michael Pas-
salaqua, a 63-year-old pancreatic
cancer patient. The man's cancer
has spread to his lungs and has
stopped responding to conven-
tional therapy. So Passalaqua has
joined a trial of an experimental
drug known as EMD 121974.
Passalaqua has completed
two 21-day treatment cycles.
Schilsky tells him and his wife
that the cancer has remained
stable since his previous check-up
a good sign.
Schilsky pulls out his stetho-
scope and asks the patient, "Can
I have you bend forward so I can
listen to your back?"
"You can have anything you
want, including our kids says Violet
Passalaqua with a perfectly straight
face as her husband complies.
Michael Passalaqua died a
few weeks later, of pneumonia.
But his 50-year-old widow is still
singing Schilsky's praises.
"He never lied to my hus-
band she says. "He said the
experimental drug might not
prolong his life, but it would
preserve his quality of life. And
he was true to his word.
"Mike never lost weight, never
got sick. He was still crawling
around under the dining room
table, playing cowboys and Indi-
ans with our grandchildren the
day before he got pneumonia.
"Dr. Schilsky gave me so
many good memories, and for
that I thank him every day
Each time he enters an exam-
ining room, Schilsky introduces
himself politely and takes a chair.
He crosses his legs, folds his hands
in his lap and settles in as if he has
all the time in the world to answer
the patient's questions.
But there aren't enough hours
in the day. On a typical clinic
day, Schilsky arrives at the hospi-
tal at 7:45 a.m in time to check
overnight e-mail. He may have
rounds or may work in his office
until lunchtime. Then he grabs a
bowl of soup and reads his new e-
mail. He gets to the clinic at 1:15
p.m. and sees outpatients until 6
or 7. Then he heads back to the
office to catch up on more e-mail,
snail mail, phone messages.
Afterward, Schilsky drives
home to La Grange, 111 has
dinner (if he's lucky, his wife and
perhaps one of their two daugh-
ters will keep him company) and
goes back to work. The schedule
does not seem strange to him;
it is modeled after some of his
influential mentors, including
John Ultman, a professor at the
University of Chicago when he
was in medical school. "I was
always inspired by his work ethic
and passion Schilsky says.
He spends two days a week
at the Chicago headquarters
of CALGB, Cancer and Leuke-
mia Group B. It's the oldest of
the clinical research coopera-
tives sponsored by the National
Cancer Institute, with 3,000
oncology specialists at 250 hos-
pitals around the country.
The group has mounted large,
multicenter studies that resulted
in the approval of three new
cancer drugs since 1997, and
many of its research findings are
now the standard of care. Perhaps
more important, it has done long-
term tumor biology studies that
have identified targets for future
drugs.

Simmer until the juices evaporate
a little and the tomatoes break
down, stirring occasionally, about
eight minutes. Add the lentils and
mix to coat. Add the broth and stir.
Add the thyme sprigs. Bring to a
boil over high heat. Cover and
simmer over low heat until the
lentils are almost tender, about
30 minutes.
Stir in the pasta. Simmer until the
pasta is tender but still firm to the
bite, about eight minutes. Season
with salt and pepper to taste.

the lid and the tea bags. Pour
the tea into the jug with the
sugar, stir and place the tea
bags back into the jug. Stir the
tea well, making sure the sugar
dissolves. Fill the jug with cold
water to yield one gallon.
Johnny Depp shines in The Libertine'
Johnny Depp Is the main character in the film The Libertine.
This unacknowledged
film makes a bold
statement
MARIANNE BARROW
STAFF WRITER
Although common thoughts
of the 17th century are of glori-
fied kings, queens and castles,
Johnny Depp's dead-on por-
trayal of the Earl of Rochester in
The Libertine sheds a new light
on the dark ages.
The previews boasted that
The Libertine was "the most con-
troversial film of the year and
after my careful viewing of the
film I can safely say that "con-
troversial" doesn't do it justice.
It was based off of a play
written by Stephen Jeffreys and
originally starred John Malkov-
lch and Martha Plimpton. How-
ever, this particular version stars
every girl's dream man.
The supporting cast of
Samantha Morton, playing
Elizabeth Barry, and John Mal-
kovich, as King Charles II, com-
plement Depp well.
Depp's brilliant on-screen
appearance is matched with
the commanding theme of the
movie: sex and all the things
everyone's afraid to talk about.
John Wilmot, or The Earl of
Rochester (Depp), is a savy 17th
century poet whose passion for
the theater is almost as strong as
his infatuation with women. In
his hand there is always a.glass
of wine and from his mouth you
can always expect something
brazen and straightforward.
Wilmot does not put on
a front for anyone, and the
screenwriters wasted no time in
getting this message across. The
very first take is of John Wilmot
sitting in the dark by himself
giving his own prologue!
"Allow me to be frank at the
commencement. You will not
like me. The gentlemen will be
envious and the ladies will be
repelled Wilmot has no prob-
lem getting down to the lesser
known gritty, promiscuous side
of the 1600s when prostitution
was basically implied for single
and married men, including
the king.
A word of warning though,
this picture is not for the conser-
vative or PG-rated crowd.
To go along with the shock-
ing revelation of the time period,
there is no shortage of foul
language, nudity or sex scenes.
But phallic symbols aside, The
Libertine reflects a deeper mean-
ing and the uncovering of what
everyone always presumed was a
more innocent time period.
To compliment the multi-
faceted storyline, there couldn't
have been a better pick of cast
members. Depp is unquestion-
ably one of the best actors of our
time. He has an incredible talent
for being so in tune with his
character that you completely
forget he's an actor and not the
person he's playing.
This specific performance
was so seamless that after the
credits stopped rolling and
Depp reappeared on the screen
with his final words, "How do
you like me now? I still found
myself sitting there in awe.
With a mixture of amazing
acting directed by Laurence
Dunmore and a gutsy storyline,
The Libertine has definitely left
an impression on its viewers.
This picture is a rare look into
history when a grimy and almost
vulgar era has been glossed over
by more romantic ideas of the
prince and princess. For a truly
eye-opening experience, this
film is highly recommended.

Chapel Hill musicians'

Finally, some teasing
you can truly enjoy
The Big Tease is making
rock music fun again
LIZ FULTON
STAFF WRITER
Finally reviving the nearly
extinct genre of live and enjoy-
able rock music, The Big Tease has
arrived to fill the void.
Hailing from eastern Tennes-
see, this four-man band infuses
ska and funk elements with good
time rock'n'roll and a dash of pop.
Normally, debut releases
starts off strong and then taper
off somewhere around song
number five. Beautiful Addic-
tion actually gets better as it
progresses.
It begins with its title track,
"Beautiful Addiction which con-
jures up images of a band playing
a fraternity party full of fun-
loving girls and good time boys.
In short, The Big Tease would be
cast perfectly as the house band
for a movie about Hollywood's
version of college life.
Fans of Incubus' second
album S.C.l.E.N.C.E. will appre-
ciate the groove of track three,
"Fact or Fiction The intro reso-
nates with the same jazzy funk
that is found in their often
overlooked but phenomenal song
"Anti-Gravity
The song to focus on, though,
is "The Fever Its chorus is so
catchy and lighthearted, 1 have
been unable to stop singing it in
the shower, causing my room-
mate extreme discomfort. With
its Spanish trumpet intro and
slow buildup to the hook, there
is nothing about this song that
can't be enjoyed. Ironically, it is
a warning to young lovers about
rushing into sex too early.
Another notable song that
many college students can iden-
tify with is song six, "D.U.I It
tells the story of remorse from
driving under the influence and
see TEASE page B2
I have never been more con-
fused by music in my life. Usually,
1 can fit a brand of music into
a genre effortlessly. However,
Dirty5Thirty's new album, It's
Not Gonna Be Like It Was Before,
has me utterly confounded. To say
that the Chapel Hill sextet has a
unique style all their own would
be a radical understatement.
After using the CD as a
soundtrack for studying and
Halo 2, the best way I could
describe their music is jazz
with an urban twist combined
with vocals that are similar to
Outkast at some points and
even Linkin Park in others.
Let me assure you that this
label stuffs the album in too small
a box. I should have expected
this from a band that claims
influence from at least 16 other
artists ranging from The Grate-
ful Dead to Talib Kweli.To be
honest, if they
said they took
inspiration
from Whit-
ney Houston, I
would believe it.
Putting
my bafflement
aside, let's get
down to the
good stuff. Is
this album
killer, or does it
suck? Let me be
honest: if you
like listening
to Top 40 hits
and own every
Now CD, do not
buy this album.

should be reserved for serious
music fans only.

much time to say it. For instance,
they enlighten listeners on their
harsh lives in "What" and break
down the problems with our
democracy on "Take Control
This gives the listener two
choices: try to keep up with

listen to these guys jam. When
I concentrated on the lyrics, I
realized the first thing that
would deter the average listener.

so much clarity also takes
away from the groove a little.
That being said, I would
rather an artist say what he
wants than water down his
ideas. Truly, "Hold Up My Fist,
Cease and Desist" is deeper
than "Shake that Laffy Taffy
The other reason I would
recommend this album to open-
minded individuals is the music
itself. After 15 seconds of the
intro, I could tell that this band
knows how to write music.
Of course, the vocalists are
featured throughout the album,
but bassist Chetan Reddy, drum-
mer John Davis and guitarists
Josh Gangway and Zacn Warken-
tin get to showcase their talents
throughout the album in "Wel-
come to Hello" and "Faced
Here's the problem for all
of you Bob 93.3 listeners: this
band can groove, this band
can jam, but Dirty5Thirty will
not write you a catchy hook
a la Kanye West. Believe me,
they could, but that would
require changing their style
and Dirty5Thirty is unwilling
to compromise on that subject.
Overall, I am impressed by
this album, which was released
earlier this month. DirtySThirty

Your Name in Vain: 'Six counts of skin deep beauty'
Screaming from eastern
North Carolina
AARON BORREGO
STAFF WRITER
Well hello, one and all. It
is time to venture into a new
realm of music for Mr. Borrego.
This type of music is a blend
of hard-core, punk and metal
and referred to affectionately as
"screamo or experimentalalter-
native rock.
I had the chance to listen to one
of Greenville's own, Your Name
in Vain, and the recently released
EP Six Counts of Skin Deep Beauty.
It is always nice to see people
in college making music and
keeping the creative juices flow-
ing at least while being subjected
to the rigors of higher learning.
Yes indeed, there are future
ECU alumni amongst these
guys. The previously mentioned
EP was released in December of
2005 and is a collection of six
I
well written and upbeat songs.
I do believe I like the album
mainly because it is a good
listen from beginning to end
with infectious titles such as
"Welcome to the Academy "Kiss
Me, Kill Me" and "Running Red
If you listen closely, a
great acoustic song is hiding
in the album somewhere.
Besides, I always like to sup-
port new artists from around
my own stomping ground in the
hope they will catch on with the
public who value non-disposable
music. This five piece band has
grown to have quite the cult fol-
lowing all their own. I have met
some of their fans who are well
adjusted, friendly and really into
the band's music.
Although I have never
attended one of this band's
shows, I do believe this EP has
changed my mind. I admittedly
acknowledge the fact that I have
stated that I do not like emo or
songs about relationships, but
that doesn't mean that every
band or every song a band makes
is necessarily about females
and.therefore, ticking me off.
1 would like to say that I was
pleasantly surprised by how
much I liked this band for its
great music and very catchy
lyrics. Even though 1 don't like it
when my music growls at me, as
all the songs on this album do
do like that there is much more to
the lyrical delivery in this album
than just screaming.
The complete contrasts
between the "growling" and
singing is truly night and day
and lends some complexity to
the music that I really enjoyed.
A very big plus is the music itself.
The blend of punk, emo and
metal elements work very nicely
together to emphasize the tone
and message of each song on
the album.
I was approached with this
album when it first came out to
view its contents. Being the smart

Joe Satriani's new album
THE EAST CAROLINIAN
New album: All hype
AARON BORREGO
STAFF WRITER
It has recently come to my
attention that Joe Satriani is
about to have another album hit
the markets on March 14 titled
Super Colossal. This is to mark
the celebration of 20 years in the
business for Satriani.
Upon its release, Satriani is
to make appearances at record
stores along the west coast then
launch a U.S. tour in Denver
on April 1. However, as a bit of
advice, don't go out to buy this
or any ticket he is offering.
This lack of an album is high-
lighted by tracks number four
and 12, titled "Redshift Riders"
and "A Love Eternal" respectively.
Even these songs can't pull this
"work of art" out of the trash, but
1 guess this is just where its right-
ful place is.
I guess Satriani won't be cel-
ebrating 20 years in the business
to worldwide fame and praise for
his newly released musical mas-
terpiece. Well, it was a master-
piece of something all right - just
not anything my editor would let
me get away with saying.
People who like Joe Satri-
ani and his music will be very
disappointed by this less-edgy,
pop-laced, depressing and utterly
bland display of old age. I imagine
that listeners expect more from
a brilliant composer, especially
one who does not create lyrics.
Someone needs to tell him,
just because you are so accom-
plished in the world of music
doesn't mean that you are free or
above having one original thought
burden your "creative" mind.
It is hard to not express my
discontent with any artist who
decides trendy pop music is a
better option than original mate-
rial. Satriani's genius was first
displayed to the world on Not of
this Earth in 1986.
The last album track can be
described as such: techno Native
American chant inspired by Rob
Zombie and trying to emulate
Queen. Although an interesting
combination, it lacks any original-
ity and basically is found wanting.
I recommend all who are
reading look for an alternative
album to quench your audio
palette.

has put together 15 tracks of pure,
original emotion. The diction is
potent. The beat gets my head
nodding and my foot tapping. I
still can't get over how this band
"merges so many sounds into one
minifying symphony.
J More than that, I truly admire
5irty5Thirty's ability to accom-
lish this in an industry that's
so willing to give in to the main-
stream just to make money.
This group has a tremendous
potential. It is my belief that if
they found a way to fit their lyrics
in seamlessly with the rest of
the music, this band could make
some serious noise on a national
level. Even so, It's Not Gonna Be
Like It Was Before is a solid LP.
Anyone who enjoys music that
makes them think or wants a
CD that they can chill to should
buy this as soon as possible. Since
this album helped me slay while I
was playing Halo 2,1 give it seven
assassinations out of 10.

the hand of fortune that pre-
vented any serious injury from
happening. The song is presented
in the style of a personal nar-
rative that doesn't try to teach
a lesson but simply relates the
singer to his audience.
What's so great about Beautiful
Addiction is that no song sounds
exactly like any other on the
album. Song number 10, "Old
Man Winter even takes on a
jam band style that brings the
promise of an amazing extended
live performance that could go for
at least 12 minutes.
All the while, there is an
undercurrent of the band's South-
ern roots and the influence of
coming out of Knoxville, Tenn.
Somehow, they managed to create
a suitable blend of insightful lyrics
and complex rhythms into some-
thing completely likeable to fans
and non-fans of rock music alike.
Their clean-cut image was made
for playing college house parties
and that is what they do best.
As of late, The Big Tease has
not branched out much from
playing fraternity parties in Ten-
nessee, Mississippi and Alabama.
Hopefully the release of Beautiful
Addiction will remedy that, as it
is a perfect addition to any rock
fan's library. It cannot be pigeon-
holed into one of the numerous
subgenres of rock, which makes
it appealing to listeners of Wide-
spread Panic or The Strokes.
Sooner rather than later, The
Big Tease will hopefully make its
way to the Emerald City and the
campus of ECU to expose us to
their infectious and upbeat music.
Until then, Beautiful Addiction
is available on ITunes and also
through their Web site, bigtease-
band.com.
One listen to their CD and
you'll be hooked no teasing.

Young
(SID) ECU Educational
Foundation (Pirate Club) Execu-
tive Director Dennis Young has
been promoted to Associate
Athletics Director according to
an announcement from Ath-
letics Director Terry Holland
Wednesday.
Young's primary responsibility
will be the planning and execution
of all major fund-raising efforts to
meet the department's future
capital and endowment needs.
"Dennis is a valuable addition
to our leadership team as this
department faces an ever-chang-
ing and challenging environ-
ment Holland said. "Our goal is
to compete at the highest level in
Division I so it is imperative for
our athletic program to establish
itself as a leader in the quest for
major gifts
Under Young's leadership,
the Pirate Club has raised more
than $35 million in capital
g'ifts to fund the expansion of
Qowdy-Ficklen Stadium, build
the Murphy Center and construct
tiie state-of-the-art Clark-LeClair
Baseball Stadium. During his IS
years as Executive Director, the
Pirate Club annual fund cam-
paigns have also experienced a
significant rise from $500,000
tp nearly $4 million for athletic
scholarships.
Young, who will begin his
hew duties as a member of the
athletic department's leadership
team on July 1, has served as
Executive Director of the Pirate
Club since 1991.
Holland cited Young's experi-
ence and effectiveness with the
Pirate Club as major strengths for
(he new position.
"Dennis Young is a former
football player and a true Pirate
in every sense of the word
Holland added. "He knows and
understands our donor base
and is nationally respected and
honored for his fund-raising
abilities. Allowing him to focus
his considerable skills on major
gifts will pay huge dividends for
ECU Athletics
A native of Winston-
Salem, NC, Young returned
to Greenville after earning his
undergraduate degree in account-
ing from ECU in 1969. He also
played football for the Pirates
under the direction of the late
Clarence Stasavich, earning let-
ters in 1966 and 1967.
The Pirate Club Executive
Committee will establish a search
Committee to identify a replace-
ment for Young immediately.
NFL Offseason Changes
- Owners voted 29-3 to limit end
zone demonstrations, including those
using props, prolonged celebrations,
and celebrating on the ground. Moves
like that will now draw a 15-yard
unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.
Spiking, dunking or spinning the ball
after a score is still allowed, as is
leaping into the stands.
- Down by contact calls will be
reviewed by replay to determine if the
ball came out before the ballcarrier
was down, and who recovered it.
- Pass rushers will be prohibited
from hitting a passer in the knee
or below unless they are blocked
ihto him. The officiating department
showed low hits that caused serious
injuries to Cincinnati's Palmer,
Pittsburgh's Ben Roethlisberger and
Tampa Bay's Brian Griese, although
In all cases, those would not draw
penalties because the rushers were
blocked in such a way that they could
not avoid the hits.
- The horse-collar rule now bans
tacklers from taking down ballcarriers
from ihe rear by tugging inside their
jerseys.
- Prohibiting defensive players
from lining up directly over center on
field-goal and extra-point attempts to

A group of Pirates take a break during one of the team's spring practices.
Pirates hold light practice,
focus on individual drills
ERIC QILMORE
SENIOR WRITER
The Pirate football team wore
shorts during a light practice
session in preparation for their
second official intra-squad scrim-
mage on Friday evening. The
coaching staff tried to correct
mental mistakes during the 140-
minute session, which featured
mostly individual drills.
After a rough scrimmage-like
practice in full pads on Monday,
ECU Head Coach Skip Holtz
kidded that he feared a revolt if
he continued to demand more
hitting.
The 11th of 15 total practices
coincided with the first public
release of the two-deep depth
chart. According to Holtz, the
depth chart is hinging with every
practice while adding emphasis
on the impending scrimmages.
"They're where they are
because of their performance
said Holtz about some surprise
starters.
"But the nanres can change
too. If people start to feel like I'm
a backup), and then they don't
perform at that level, they'll be
Imoved down)
The changes are rampant on
defense where the linebackers
and two secondary positions
seem to be rotating daily. A crop
of three fresh faces currently
anchors the first linebacking
unit. Redshirt freshman Jeremy
Chambliss, junior college new-
comer Fred Wilson and little-
used Quentin Cotton are listed
as starters.
In the secondary, junior Travis
Williams overtook sophomore
Stacy Walls, who struggled in the
first scrimmage. Williams began
camp as a third unit cornerback,
but has excelled to the top unit.
On the defensive line, the
numbers are thin due to position
changes and injuries. However,
with three guys waiting to become
eligible and five freshmen arriv-
ing in the summer, the line has
precious time to solidify spots.
"Everybody that's out here has
to prove themselves said senior
defensive end Shauntae Hunt.
"When (spring practice is
over with, we're going to have
some guys ready to play. I keep
telling these guys not to get
passed up. Nobody likes it when
you've been practicing during
spring ball and then someone
starts practicing in the summer)
and when the season comes;
they're sitting in front of you
Offensively, playing expe-
rience has given Holtz more
structure. Three-year starter
James Pinkney has impressed by
his improved decision making.
Surprisingly, the smoke is begin-
ning to clear behind Pinkney.
Sophomore Patrick Pinkney (no
relation) missed the 2005 season
with multiple shoulder surgeries
and is listed as the co-backup
with redshirt freshman Brett
Clay.
"It's come from hard work,
learning everyday and learning
from the other quarterbacks
said Patrick Pinkney.
Thomas Wingenbach, a career
offensive line backup beat out
converted defensive tackle Fred
Hicks at the center slot. Junior
tackle Josh Coffman and redshirt
freshman Terence Campbell fill
the other holes created from
graduation.
At tight end, Jay Sonnhalter
is listed over converted quarter-
back Davon Drew. Pat Dosh and
Kort Shankweiler, the two other
converted quarterbacks, are listed
respectively at fullback.
The team will take Thursday
off before the scrimmage on
Friday, which begins at approxi-

Fielder (left) and Hermida (right) are expected to make immediate impacts this season with Milwaukee and Florida respectively.
Fielder, Hermida, Barfield headline Major
League Baseball's 2006 crop of rookies
(AP) A powerful Prince
leads this season's talented group
of youngsters who could make
an immediate impact and be
crowned as baseball's top rookies.
Prince Fielder, the son of
former home run king Cecil
Fielder, is stepping in as Milwau-
kee's starting first baseman after
the Brewers traded l.yle Overbay
in the offseason. The left-handed
hitting slugger already has shown
he's up to the challenge, with
the same strong, bulky build
and power at the plate as his Big
Daddy.
"I look at it as a positive thing
because when people have high
expectations, I see it as they just
want you to do well Fielder said.
"You can't let the pressure bother
you. You just want to go out and
have a great season
Fielder is one of a hand-
ful of first-year players being
counted on to perform right
away as starters, including
Arizona second baseman Josh
Barfield, Florida outfielder Jeremy
Hermida and Seattle catcher
Kenji Johjima.
Barfield, the son of former
home run champ Jesse Barfield,
beat out veterans Mark Bellhorn
and Bobby Hill despite having no
major league at-bats.
"He's done everything you
could ask for this spring Padres
GM Kevin Towers said. "He's
played great defense, he's had
timely hits with runners in scor-
ing position, he's run the bases
very, very well
New York Mets right-hander
Brian Bannister, son of former
major league pitcher Floyd Ban-
nister, beat out Aaron Heilman
for the No. 5 spot in the starting
r
rotation.
Other top rookies with
famous bloodlines include Ari-
zona shortstop Stephen Drew,
brother of Dodgers outfielder
J.D. Drew; and Tampa Bay out-
fielder Delmon Young, brother
of Detroit's Dmitri Young. Both
will begin the season in the
minors, but could be in the bigs
by midseason.
The new-look Marlins are
relying heavily on youngsters,
with at least five rookies among
their eight position players - Her-
mida, who had a pinch-hit grand
t
slam in his first major league
at-bat; highly touted shortstop
Hanley Ramirez; first baseman
Mike Jacobs, who hit 11 homers
with the Mets last year; catcher
Josh Willingham, and center
fielder Reggie Abercrombie.
"A lot of people are looking
at us as the young team that's
not going to do much Hermida
said. "We're going to go out there
and work hard and surprise some
people

in Japan, where he won seven
consecutive Gold Gloves. But
he'll make history on opening
day when he becomes the first
Japanese-born catcher to play
in the majors. The 29-year-old
hit .308 or better the last three
seasons.
"We understand the difficulty
of the transition he is facing, but
he is handling it very well
manager Mike Hargrove.said.
Here's a quick look at some of
this year's other top rookies:
- Brian Anderson, OF, White
Sox. Chicago had so much con-
fidence in his abilities, gritty
center fielder Aaron Rowand
was traded to Philadelphia for
Jim Thome.
- Matt Cain, RHP, Giants.
Enters season as No. 4 starter
after going 2-1 with a 2.33 ERA
in seven starts last year.
- Joey Devine, RHP, Braves.
With a 95 mph fastball and
nasty slider, could be Atlanta's
closer of the near future. But had
rough debut, becoming the first
pitcher to give up grand slams
in first two appearances, and
then surrendering season-ending
homer to Houston's Chris Burke
in playoffs.
- Anderson Hernandez, 2B,
Mets. Set to be in starting lineup
on opening day because of injury
to incumbent Kaz Matsui, despite
l-for-18 debut last season.
- Conor Jackson, IB, Dia-
mondbacks. Bat couldn't be kept
in minors anymore, especially
after he hit better than .350 in
Triple-A. Assumes first base job,
knocking veteran Tony Clark
back to bench.
- Ian Kinsler, 2B, Rangers.
Will fill spot vacated when four-
time All-Star Alfonso Soriano
was traded to Washington. Has
some pop, and improved deferv
sively after not playing second
base until last season.
t
- Jonathan Papelbon, RHP,
Red Sox. Will begin season in
Boston's bullpen, but could find
way into rotation if Curt Schil-
ling, Josh Beckett, David Wells
or Matt Clement struggles witn
injuries.
- Justin Verlander, RHlt;
Tigers. First-round draft choicf;
in 2004 cruised through system
reached majors last season and!
will be No. 5 starter.

- Ryan Zimmerman, 3B
Nationals. Scouts said his defense!
was major league-ready in cot
lege, and he's already considered
one of top-fielding third basev
men in game. His bat's pretty!
good, too, hitting better than;
.300 in three stops - including
with Washington - after getting
drafted in June.
Duke president meets with
students about investigation
(AP) The president of Duke
University met Wednesday with
students who feel his suspension
of the lacrosse team during a rape
investigation was not enough,
urging them to be patient while
police look into the matter.
"I don't want to say I'm sat-
isfied, but I will say that what
happened in there makes me
feel like we're moving in a good
direction sophomore Bridgette
Howard said after the roughly
hourlong session.
The meeting between Presi-
dent Richard Brodhead and a
few dozen students was closed to
all media except Duke's student
newspaper.
Brodhead suspended the
highly ranked team from play
until the school learns more
about accusations that team
members attacked an exotic
dancer hired to perform at an
off-campus party. The alleged
victim, a student at nearby North
Carolina Central University, has
told police she was pulled into a
bathroom, beaten, choked and
raped by three men at a March
13 party, where she and another
Duke President Richard Brodhead takes questions during a press
conference concerning the investigation of the men's lacrosse team.

dancer were hired to perform.
Police collected DNA samples
with a cheek swab from 46 mem-
bers of the lacrosse team last
week; the 47th player, the only
black member, wasn't tested
because the victim said her
attackers were white.
No one has been charged, and
the team's captains have said the
tests will clear players.
Police said three players who
live at the house where the party
took place spoke with investiga-
tors and voluntarily provided
samples March 16. A scheduled
meeting between detectives
a-nd the rest of the team was
later canceled by the players'
ajtorney, and District Attorney
Mike Nifong said Wednesday the
players still refuse to speak with
investigators.
News of the attack has sparked
days of protest at Duke and in
Durham, culminating Tuesday
in Brodhead's decision to suspend
the team. He stressed the suspen-
sion was not a punishment, but
a response to the inappropriate
nature of playing while the inves-
tigation is ongoing.
Those comments led about
100 students to approach Brod-
head after Tuesday night's
announcement and demand his
administration deliver a stronger
response.
"We understand that the legal
system is that you are innocent
until proven guilty said sopho-
more Kristin High. "But people
are nervous and afraid that these
people are going to get away
with what they did because of a
wealthy privilege, or male privi-
lege, or a white privilege
Their protests led to Wednes-
day's meeting inside the campus'
black cultural center, where par-
ticipants said Brodhead urged
patience as police continue to
investigate.
Graduate student Michelle
Christian complained Duke is
continuing to downplay the
alleged attack.
"They need presidents, they
need administrators, they need
faculty, to tell them that it was
wrong behavior and that they
are not going to be coddled
because they are athletes, because
they come from privileged back-
grounds, because they have
money Christian told Durham's
WTVD-TV.
Later in the day, sophomore
Jeff Shaw wore a Duke lacrosse
T-shirt on campus in support of
his friends on the team.
"Even if it's true, it's three
guys and unfortunately, this is
going to be a label the team is
going to carry Shaw said.
The incident was expected to
heighten interest in an annual
campus rally against sexual vio-
lence planned for Wednesday
night.
Also Wednesday, Brodhead
apologized for language used
by those at the party. A woman
calling 911 on the night of the
party told police that men out-
side of the house called out to
her and another woman using a
racial slur.
"It's disgusting Brodhead
said in a statement. "Racism and
its hateful language have no place

Book outlines
management of tourism
ELISA BIZZOTTO
STAFF WRITER
Dr. David L. Edgell, Sr pro-
fessor and the director of the
Institute for Tourism, has recently
written a book on the increas-
ingly popular topic of sustain-
able tourism. The book, entitled
Managing Sustainable Tourism: A
Legacy for the Future, discusses the
need for future tourism programs
to focus heavily on the balance
between environmental preser-
vation and maintenance of high
quality products.
Sustainable tourism, defined
by the Global Development
Research Center as an industry
which attempts to make a low
impact on the environment and
local culture, while helping to
generate income, employment
and the conservation of local
ecosystems, is a focus on the
balance between ecological and
cultural sensitivity. Because the
tourism industry is the largest in
the world, producing the most
earnings and providing the most
positions of employment interna-
tionally, the need for this balance
is imperative.
There are many benefits to
this approach on tourism regard-
less of which perspective one
assumes. Residents of high tourist
communities play a more active
role in the business because sus-
tainable tourism programs aim
to employ those most familiar
with the environment who can
also provide local services and
supplies. In addition, environ-
mentally aware travelers tend
to favor those businesses that
minimize excessive consump-
tion, waste or energy in order
to conserve resources. Thus, the
natural habitat and overall integ-
rity are maintained, preventing
communities from suffering
the "loved to death" syndrome.
Travelers consequently experi-
ence better trips and are encour-
aged to appreciate quality over
quantity. As a result, the volume

SGA accomplishing platform goals for 05-06
Platform items help
enhance the total
student experience
KIMBERLY BELLAMY
STAFF WRITER
The 2005-2006 SGA admin-
istration has accomplished many
of their goals they set out to
achieve including moving to a
more accessible office, completely
revising the constitution and
many other factors that will make
student life more fulfilling.
The new office, located in the
same area as the dining facility
previously known as The Spot,
was completed over spring break.
SGA executive officers relo-
cated to their new office home
on Friday, March 24. A ribbon
cutting ceremony was held to
mark the opening of the office
and to inform the students about
the new location.
According to M. Cole Jones,
SGA president, the office includes
a presidential executive area with a
conference table, personal offices
for executive officers, office space
for the administrative assistant
and workspace for students.
A list of the numerous accom-
plishments that SGA has made
is printed on the outside of the
windows of the offices as well.
Jones seemed very anxious
and optimistic about the outcome
of the relocation of the office.
"I'm very excited to be in an
environment where students can
see the quality work of the SGA
Jones said.
Jones explained that the
decision to change the location
of the office was made after con-
ducting verbal surveys to find
out how many students actually
had a sense of where to find their
executive SGA officers.
The survey also asked for
suggestions about how to make
students more aware of how to
locate these officers.
The results revealed that stu-
dents felt that SGA wanted to be
hidden from the student body
and that the office was very dif-
ficult to find.
"Two very common words
that continued to surface while
conducting the survey was
becoming more visible and acces-
sible Jones said.
When the vacancy of a more
visible, accessible area arose, SGA
took the opportunity to relocate.
The opportunity to change
their office space was presented to
SGA by Corey King, assistant vice
chancellor of student experience.
According to Jones, it was an
important goal of the SGA mem-
bers in the office to become one of
the first areas they see when enter-
ing Mendenhall Student Center.

Federal Reserve raises federal funds rate again
15th rise in rate since
June 2004
LEE SCHWARZ
STAFF WRITER ,
The economy is very strong,
according to what the Federal
Reserve has done in raising the
Federal Funds interest rate again
marking the 15th straight time
this has been done since June
2004. The rate is now at 4.75
percent, its highest level in five
years. Interest rates are raised to
avoid inflation and an economy
growing too fast for its own
good. Consumer confidence,
which was expected to be at 102,
is now at 107.2, the highest in
nearly four years. The increase
in the United States is in stark
contrast to that of New Zealand,
where consumer confidence is
very low. Consumer confidence
is a measure of the level of opti-
mism consumers have about the
performance of the economy.
Generally, consumer confidence
is high when the unemploy-
ment rate is low and GDP (Gross
Domestic Product) growth is
high. Considering that consumer,
confidence high, it is interesting
that President Bush's job approval
rating is so low.
Stocks and bonds fell on the
news with the Dow Jones falling
.76 percent. The Dow is now at
the highest level it has been since
1999 and 2000 with it seem-
ingly poised to be even higher.
Generally when an interest rate
increase is announced, stock and
bond prices go down as earnings
for stocks may suffer when a cor-
poration is forced to record more
interest expense on Its income
statement. Similarly, bonds go
down in price as well because
of competition from govern-
ment debt instruments. As U.S.
government bonds have no risk,
because it has never defaulted on
a single dollar of debt, corporate
bonds then produce a smaller
risk-adjusted return making
them worth less.
As the prices of these secu-
rities go down, buying oppor-
tunities emerge, and buying
opportunities will continue to
emerge as the Federal Reserve
will likely raise rates a few more
times. Leading brokerage houses
to comment on the increases,
see FEDERAL page A3

State
School secretary's secret Is out
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - By day,
Rachell Lindsay Wallace answers
phones and types memos at CA.
Johnson High School.
But for years, hardly anyone knew
about her secret life, cranking out
manuscripts in her pajamas at 5
o'clock on Saturday mornings.
Like many writers, Wallace dreamed
of publishing the great American
novel. But nobody wanted any of her
nine manuscripts and told her so in
countless rejection letters.
"It will crush you because you'll feel
like you're never good enough
Wallace said.
Her faith In God and the support
of her family kept her writing. But
she stopped trying to publish her
books, until a group of CA. Johnson
cheerleaders discovered them. They
told Wallace they thought the books,
Christian fiction about young women
overcoming challenges, had the
power to inspire.
The cheerleaders convinced Wallace
to give publishing one more shot. It
worked and she has a book and a
new confidence.
Today, Wallace keeps homemade,
spiral-bound copies of her other
novels tucked inside her desk at
CA. Johnson, where she is principal
James Taylor's secretary.
Her mother, Mary Lindsay Watts,
already envisions her daughter on
television. "I see her on Oprah Winfrey
already Watts said.
Possible legal battle looming
over tobacco settlement
WASHINGTON (AP) - A legal battle
may be looming between states,
including North Carolina, and tobacco
companies over money owed from a
landmark 1998 settlement agreement.
What's at stake could be more than
$1 billion.
An economic consulting firm
determined late Monday that the
agreement between the cigarette
companies and the states was a
"significant factor" in contributing
to a loss of market share for the
companies that signed on to the
settlement.
The report stated that the agreement,
which imposed numerous marketing
limits on the companies and required
billions of dollars in payments to
states, led to the erosion of their
market share to smaller manufacturers
that didn't sign on and generally sell
discount cigarettes.
That finding is one of several
determinations that would be
necessary for the tobacco companies
to reduce their annual payments to
states under the agreement.
The No. 1 cigarette maker, Philip
Mom's, declined Tuesday to comment
on whether it will seek to have its
payments reduced.
But Iowa Attorney General Tom
Miller and Idaho Attorney General
Lawrence Wasden released a joint
statement Tuesday saying the finding
by the Brattle Group, a consulting firm
tasked by both sides with looking
into the Issue of eroding market
share, should not lead to a reduction
in payments. The two head the
tobacco committee for the National
Association of Attorneys General.

Al-Qaida operatives deny
Moussaoul was part of 911 plot
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) - Two more
high-ranking al-Qaida operatives
cast doubt on whether Zacarias
Moussaoui was involved in the Sept.
11,2001, attacks, with one portraying
him as a misfit who refused to follow
orders, in testimony Tuesday at his
death penalty trial.
One terrorist, identified as Sayf
al-Adl, a senior member of al-Qaida's
Ceremony was held to feature the new North Recreational Complex
as part of the ECU Founders Week events in Greenville.

military committee, stated sometime
between Sept. 1, 2001, and late
July 2004, that Moussaoui was "a
confirmed jlhadist but was absolutely
not going to take part in the Sept. 11,
2001, mission "The 911 Commission
reported that the U.S. had recovered
from a safehouse in Pakistan a letter
written by al-Adl describing the
various candidates considered for
the Sept. 11 attacks.
Their testimony backs up the claims
of Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, chief
organizer of the 911 attacks. He said
in testimony read to the jury Monday
that Moussaoui had nothing to do
with the plot but was to have been
used for a second wave of attacks
distinct from Sept. 11.
Moussaoui said for the first time
Monday that he was supposed to
pilot a fifth plane in the 911 plot
and attack the White House. He had
previously denied a role in 911 and
claimed to be part of a different plot.
They rescued illegal immigrants,
and were arrested
TUCSON, Ariz (AP) - Emil Hidalgo-
Solis couldn't stop throwing up.
His diarrhea was bloody. His feet
blistered. He had staggered through
the desert, stumbled across the
border, gulped contaminated water
from a slimy cattle trough.
On this scorching day, in the hottest
July in local history, Hidalgo-Solis
seemed doomed to be among
hundreds who died trying to enter the
United States from Mexico last year.
He collapsed in a ditch. He and two
others among th'e 10 immigrants
could go no farther.
Sellz, a 23 - year -old former
Americorps volunteer who has
interned with an ecological preserve
in Ecuador and worked in food co-
ops, grows very worried when she
considers the prospect of 15 years
in federal prison.
Daniel Strauss, 24 and newly married,
is more sanguine. When he was in
college, he visited the U.S. - Mexico
border as part of a sociology course
on immigration. "I saw how hard
of a life it was for them, to make a
living, to be with their families. When
I found out what they had to go
through just to get into this country, to
make an honest living, it amazed
me he said.
This has been an exciting time, he
says. He's famous in the world of
migrants, his smiling face appearing
on Spanish-language television news
broadcasts so frequently that he's often
recognized at the immigrant center
where he works in Jackson, Wyo.
Both say regardless of the
consequences, they intend to return to
the Arizona next summer, and resume
their work with No More Deaths.
"I do not, in no way, think what we're
doing is wrong says Sellz.
International
1 million French take to the streets
PARIS (AP) - More than 1 million
people poured into the streets across
France and strikers disrupted air, rail
and bus travel Tuesday, even shutting
down the Eiffel Tower, in the largest
nationwide protest over a youth
labor law.
Scattered violence erupted in Paris,
and riot police used water cannons
and tear gas to disperse several
thousand youths who pelted them
with stones and bottles after an
otherwise peaceful march.
Police made 787 arrests around the
country, 488 of them in Paris, National
Police Chief Michel Gaudin told The
Associated Press. Injuries in the capital
were tallied at 46 demonstrators and
nine police officers.
Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy later
invited some 200 police officers, some
still wearing their protective gear, to the
Interior Ministry for wine and snacks.
"I'm proud of you he said. "Mission
accomplished
The State Department advised
Amencans in France to avoid areas
where crowds were expected to
gather and to exercise caution,
particularly at night.
"We are here for our children. We are
very worried about what will happen
to them said Philippe Decrulle, an
Air France flight attendant at the Paris
protest. "My son is 23, and he has no
job. That is normal in France
Sex, cash and bank secrets:
scandal brings down Brazil's
finance minister
RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil (AP) - Brazil's
government has been shaken by
a scandal involving prostitutes,
suitcases full of lobbyists' cash
and a violation of bank secrecy
laws that brought down the
finance minister.
The controversy has raised questions
about whether the departure of
the architect of Brazil's economic
recovery will prompt President Luiz
Inacio Lula da Sllva to swing the
country further to the left to get re-
elected this year.
Silva quickly named a replacement
Tuesday for the ousted finance
chief, Antonio Palocci. New Rnance
Minister Guido Mantega moved to
contain the damage by promising
economic stability and to stay the
course on Brazil's monetary policy
aimed at paying down debt and
taming inflation.
Still, the controversy shook investor
confidence: The Brazilian real
dropped nearly 3 percent against
the dollar and stocks on Sao Paulo's
benchmark Bovespa index fell more
than 1 percent in trading Tuesday.
Palocci's ouster Monday
deprives Silva, known popularly as
Lula, of a longtime ally, campaign
organizer and Cabinet minister who
had reassured investors by putting
Latin America's largest economy
on a course of slow and steady
growth.

The high level of consumer
confidence and the relatively
low unemployment rate of 5.2
percent may be deterred with
the news of GM laying off hun-

Such an occurrence may indeed
hurt the unemployment rate.
Other possible threats to
consumer confidence are as

Another bit of interest is the
U.S. Treasury yield curve is now
inverted at most maturities, a
trend that has often preceded a
recession as many retired persons
depend on income-yielding secu-
rities to support them.
Despite past actions, which
in no way are fully accurate in
predicting the future, Fed Chair-
man Bernanke and many others
on the Fed denounce the pos-
sibility of recession based upon
the inverted yield curve.
Further Lakshman Achuthan,

rately forecast the 2001 recession,
says, "That the three-month10-
year curve hasn't inverted. What's

SGA
from page A1
"It was advantageous for us to
make use of The Spot so students
will know, see and believe that
their SGA officers are truly leaders
at work to enhance their experi-
ence as a student Jones said.
Some other accomplishments
SGA has made this year include
the revisions of the constitution,
involvement in the implementa-
tion of music file downloading
and co-sponsoring the State
of the University Address with
Chancellor Steve Ballard.
This year's administration also
attempted to find ways to reduce
the cost of textbooks. They part-
nered with alternative book buy-
back. You can learn more about
this at campusbookswap.com.
Jones mentioned that there
is a possibility that posters
may be posted in various parts of
campus that include a complete
list of the accomplishments that
SGA has made this year.
"Although we began with a
deficit of $23,000 this year, we
were able to effectively accom-
plish the items on our platform
Jones said.
Some things to look for from
this administration are a possible
Dead Week and SGA member-
ship cards.
SGA researched and created a
survey for opinions about a week
prior to final examinations when
professors would not be allowed
to test students.
This would allow students to
focus on reviewing for their finals
and prevent students from having
several exams on one day.
This idea is currently in
the approval process and the
survey will be available on One-
stop before the end of the year,
according to Jones.
SGA membership cards were
distributed to the senate mem-
bers of SGA a few weeks ago at
one of their weekly meetings
held on Mondays.
The idea for the cards emerged
in a meeting of the executive
members this summer when
trying to think of possible tools
to create a more positive image of
SGA, according to Jones.
The cards include the
SGA contact information and
important campus numbers
that students should know such
as ECU Police, Health Services
and Financial Aid. The cards
will be available to the entire
student body. Students are
reminded that all students are
members of SGA under the new
constitution.
The cards will also provide
incentives for students. Stu-
dents are encouraged to keep
their membership cards with
them at all times in case an
SGA member approaches
them with the intent of giving
them a free T-shirt, tickets to a
campus event, food coupons or
other giveaways.
"SGA would like to give many
thanks to Chancellor Ballard, Dr.
Moore, Corey King, Kevin Seitz,
Jesse Battle, Melanie Bunch and
the entire Mendenhall staff for
making this happen Jones said.

Our View
Bad grammar, how are
we supposed to learn?
Guess who is tired of the English professors
having bad grammar? Yes, it's me. I would like
to get a degree that is well above pathetic,
and teaching an English class using phrases
like, "anyways" and "then what had he did?"
is not building on my skills in a positive way. I
have taken four English courses at ECU, and
so far, two of the professors had really crappy
grammar. I don't mean they were foreign; that
is perfectly acceptable. Who doesn't love an
accent? I'm saying there are professors using
words that are not words!
This place really does have a worse reputa-
tion than it deserves, though. It really is a good
school, but for someone like me who spends
each semester hovering over average in grades,
to get annoyed with people taking points off for
my grammar when they are speaking with the
tact of a child can really show you how annoy-
ing it can be.
I don't think they are trying to be obnoxious;
I think they are genuinely bad at speaking
English. Sure it's a difficult language with so
many words meaning the same thing, but
for the most part, America is not nearly as
advanced in learning linguistics as just about
every other nation.
I'm not saying I do speak clearly all the time.
I'm not even saying I form an acceptable sen-
tence every time I speak. I am an advocate
of saying "anyways" from time to time. I just
think that if it is your job to teach English, then
you should be able to do that without saying,
"Then what we will have did" and at least try
to make sense when it is, after all, your area
of expertise.

MAD COW MEETS BIRP FLU

Paris and its absurd sense of entitlement
And I'm not talking about
some rich socialite with VD
GARY MCCABE
BITTER BOULEVARD
In the past however many
years, disliking the French has
become about as cliche as a Goth
kid loving coffee. It isn't that the
contempt for the European nation
isn't warranted - in fact, it's quite
justified when you consider the
ramifications of the Oil-for-Food
scandal, the snobby demeanor of
the French people and the coun-
try's insistence on being a major
world player despite their inability
to not lay down for Adolph Hitler
during World War II.
The French have the absurd
sense of entitlement the likes
of which has only been seen in
blonde hotel heiresses and Starr
Jones, whose head is enormous
both literally and figuratively.
That being said, I typically try
to avoid following such cliches
as French-bashing.
I've avoided the issue in past col-
umns. I never succumbed to calling
my favorite side dish "freedom fries
I've never disparaged the practice of
eating snails. I never supported Bill
O'Reilly's boycott of the country
(actually, in strict accordance with
the old Arab proverb that "the
enemy of my enemy is my friend
technically that would make the
French my "bestest" friends in the
whole wide world.)
However, I'm jumping on the
"Screw France" bandwagon because
of an alarming series of events cur-
rently unfolding as I type this column.
Before I delve into them, though, I'd
like to first set the scene.
France has an inane set of laws
which essentially make it difficult
- if not impossible - for a busi-
ness to fire any worker they hire.
I suppose the thinking is that if a
company cannot fire somebody,
nobody would ever be out of
work. Maybe it's my capitalistic
upbringing or it's just common
sense, but in theory, that system
seems doomed to fail miserably.
In reality it failed miserably.
The unemployment rate in
France ol hose 25 years and
younger is a staggering 23 per-
cent. Judging from those num-
bers, it's a safe assumption that
most French companies would
rather hire somebody with a
great deal of experience (or no
one at all) than be handcuffed
not only to a worker who can't
be fired, but a worker who knows
they can't be fired.
Look at our government work-
ers here in the United States who
work under a similar system.
Granted, they do a good job for
the most part, but they don't have
that fear of God that makes them
go the extra mile - or at least the
expected distance. That's prob-
ably why I had to spend two hours
at the Social Security office in
New Bern last week just to request
a new card, which still takes 2-3
weeks to come by mail.
The system breeds low produc-
tively and an even lower bottom line
- and France now recognizes it as
recently, they passed a series of laws
making it much easier for a company
to fire workers on their first job who
just aren't working out.
Now, if I were a recent college
graduate looking to enter the work
force in France, I'd be thrilled with
these new laws. If some company
could now fire me, they would
have more incentive to take a
chance in hiring me as well, giving
me the opportunity to prove my
worth to them. And while I may
not be a genius like Alexander
Hamilton in such matters, these
laws will ultimately lead to more
jobs for the youth of France who,
as I've stated previously, are find-
ing it tremendously difficult to
find work.
1 guess that's why I'm having
such difficulty grasping why young
French students are taking to the
streets in protest of these reforms,
flipping cars and setting fires in
anger at the prospect of a life not
handed to them. After all, seeing as
how many of these students attend
(or attended - the school has since
closed in light of recent events) the
Sorbonne, the French equivalent to
England's Oxford or our Harvard
University, this is a rebellion of the
privileged class, not the poor work-
ing class who actually benefit greatly
from these reforms.
If this were an uprising of the
oppressed peoples of France, I'd
jump on the bandwagon and call
for Prime Minister Dominique
de Villepin's head. The fact is,
these students aren't fighting for
equality as they pretend - they're
fighting to retain the inequality
of the French economic system.
Should hiring be encouraged and
subsequently, degrees from pres-
tigious universities be devalued,
these rioters would have to make
it on their own merit (a frighten-
ing concept for many of them.)
These students would be
satisfied with the system of old
- that they earn a degree from the
Sorbonne, get a job on the basis
of where they went to college (not
on the basis of their abilities) and
put life on cruise control.
They want the system of old in
place, despite the fact that it's that
very system that will prevent them
from getting any job at all. Is having
no job preferable to having a less-
than-perfect one? There's a lyric in
a Bright Eyes song that says, I'd
rather be working for a paycheck
than waiting to win the lottery The
context is different, but the message
is certainly applicable to the French
rioters.
I take it for granted that I live in
the United States - especially now as
I'm set to enter the workforce, terri-
fied of the competition for my first
job. But that's why the American
system is so successful. Instead of
rioting and protesting, the only way
for me to succeed in this country is
to better myself. If the United States
was a welfare state like France or Ger-
many and handed everything to its
people, it would be great - however,
it would do so at great cost.
These riotous French students
should take notes. France never
conquered the world. The United
States did.
In My Opinion
(KRT) Yes, it was shocking
to see Terrell Owens, the tal-
ented pass-catching villain who
tromped on the Dallas Cowboys
star, join America's Team.
But there's suddenly another
oh-my-gosh, can't-believe-it
development that jaded observ-
ers of Washington politics might
consider equally stunning: Con-
gress seems to be seriously tack-
ling a highly controversial and
complex issue - illegal immigra-
tion - in an election year.
Lo and behold, members of the
polarized body even appear to be
showing some legitimate bipartisan
cooperation on the powder-keg
issue, arguably the most combus-
tible topic in politics today.
Oddly enough, that might
be precisely why members of
Congress finally appear to be
addressing the issue in earnest.
They've heard loudly and clearly
from red-faced constituents
demanding that America secure
its borders and stanch the flow
of illegal immigration. Pro-immi-
grant forces have responded with
spirited salvos of their own.
The issue is so white-hot that
many members of Congress fear
that simply ducking it - the boiler-
plate election-year modus operandi
for a governing body often lacking
in backbone - would be political
suicide this time around.
We'll probably find out a lot
more this week about whether
Congress truly plans to address
immigration reform seriously
before the November elections.
Beginning Monday, March 27, dis-
cussions on specific reform legisla-
tion are expected to resume in the
Senate Judiciary Committee. The
debate could move to the Senate
floor as Senate Majority Leader
Bill Frist, R-Tenn a likely 2008
presidential candidate, presses for
action on his own bill.
The House of Representatives
passed a bill in December that
focuses on hard-nosed enforce-
ment. Some provisions are overly
harsh and extreme, including
plans to build double-layered, rein-
forced fence along 698 miles of the
U.S-Mexico border at an estimated
cost of $3.2 million per mile. The
House bill ignored President Bush's
call for a guest worker program
and didn't offer any prospect of
amnesty for illegal immigrants
already in America.
That leaves it up to the Senate
to take the initiative by engaging
in a calm, rational, thorough
debate that eventually leads to
congressional passage of worthy
reform legislation.
Congress should seek a sensible
middle ground that includes an
amnesty program for a substantial
portion of illegal immigrants. It
would be both Impossible and
cruel - as well as detrimental to
the U.S. economy and our global
image - to round up and deport
an estimated 12 million illegal
immigrants. Many are good, hard-
working people with the potential
to become solid U.S. citizens.
On the flip side, illegal immi-
grants - who often work for abys-
mally low pay and under sordid
conditions - have pushed down
wages and marginalized job
prospects for millions of low- and
moderate-income working-class
Americans who are here legally.
Taxpayers have absorbed a rap-
idly growing bill for education
and healthcare for illegal immi-
grants and their children.
We need to curb further
illegal immigration drastically
and enhance homeland security
by tightening our borders and
establishing a tamper-proof ID
system to ensure that, going for-
ward, employers hire only those
who are here legally.
We probably will need to boost
the numbers of immigrants granted
temporary visas and gTeen cards to
live and work in the United States
(particularly with baby boomers
soon retiring in droves). We also
should elevate the federal minimum
wage, unchanged at $5.15 an hour
since 1997, to at least $6.50 to $7.
Some xenophobic Americans
might find comfort in simple math.
The U.S. population soon will top
300 million. If there are 12 million
illegal immigrants here, that means
only one in 25 persons in America
are undocumented - and many of
those here illegally are energetic,
industrious people who are assets
to their communities.
Now let's see if Congress is
sufficiently responsible and cou-
rageous to pass comprehensive,
fair and compassionate immigra-
tion reform in an election year.
If Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry
Jones can give Terrell Owens the
benefit of the doubt, perhaps we
owe the same to Congress.
If you absolutely, positively cannot stand and truly
hate TEC, why are you bothering to write a Pirate
Rant? And furthermore, you're probably going to
pick up TEC and see if it has been published. Good
job with your TEC hating.
Thank you to the guys on the second floor of White
Hall who offered the girls of Clement Hall a place
to stay. We loved seeing your colorful posters while
the chaos ensued outside. You are our knights in
shining armor!
To the girl who remained in Clement Residence Hall
on the ninth floor while the building was on fire
next time, please get out on time. Watching you
freak out because you ignored the fire alarm was
hilarious, but the fact that you could've been hurt
! isn't. Try to obey the rules next time, and remember:
j stop and roll!
To whomever doesn't know how to avoid burning
their butts in the tanning bed: try sun block or
use a stand-up bed. I prefer stand up beds anyway
' because no matter how many times I clean it, I imag-
ine someone else's sweaty naked butt laying on the
tanning bed. Just better hygiene.
Why do they even have computer lab assistants in
Speight? Half the time they are not where they are sup-
posed to be and when they are they're no help. They
don't even keep rude people from loudly talking on
their cell phones while you're trying to type a paper!
To every guy who has ever come across my path and
it hasn't worked out for your own "reasons, I would
just like to let you know that one day you are going
to look back and realize that I was the best thing that
ever happened to you.
I'm against roommates who don't take out the trash!
I know your momma taught you better than that.
Where were guys like you before I found my husband?
Your opinion article on cheating was so on target!
Thanks for trying to make the situation better for
one girl who was hurting.
M. Cole Jones is hot! But that isn't why I voted for
him; it's because he is experienced and he has a
beautiful personality.
Why rant about someone having an opinion about
j your rant? Can't we just be happy that there are
i people out there with opinions of their own and they
I actually picked up a newspaper of sorts?
Walking through Wright Place around lunchtime
j freaks me out! This week has been especially bad.
Even when I'm on the phone, I am still harassed
by at least three groups of people who are roaming
; around promoting something. Have mercy, I just
i want to get my lunch!
I wish I knew if the guys that I dated were only out for
"getting some" or irtney wanted a relationship.
j To the girl driving the red Mustang Wednesday at 10
a.m. at the Greenville Blvd. and Elm Street intersec-
j tion, learn how to drive. You nearly killed the man
I on the bike, then you kept driving down the street
as if nothing happened.
t Two weeks ago, I sent in a rant complaining about
! having to wait 40 minutes for Safe Ride. Well I'm glad
j to report the last two times I've called them, I haven't
j had to wait more than 10 minutes total for them to
show up. That's from the time I called them to the
time I was in the van. Whatever changes they've
made to Safe Ride, keep it up!
Isn't it funny how some fraternities and sororities
claim to be changing the world by volunteering for
various organizations, and yet they waste millions
of perfectly good bed sheets every year?
It costs almost $6 for a box of Lucky Charms at Reade
Street! That's ridiculous! Maybe they can use all of the
money from overcharges at dining places on campus
to make a new scholarship to replace the one the bas-
ketball team lost. It's bad enough to get blown away
every game by powerhouses such as UNCG (sarcasm),
but these guys lose in the classroom, too!
If you hate TEC that much, don't read it.
I've realized that I am much happier having the
love of my female friends than any immature col-
lege guy.
Girls, stop wearing men's undershirts as shirts. It
looks trashy and really unflattering.
Our Chancellor has stated that people with just a high
school diploma earn around $34,000 a year. Does
he realize that ECU pays less than that to full-time
Professional staff with a four-year degree? Why did
even go to college?
So when my car got a boot on it, I wanted to get so
angry at the guys who did it, but they were both
extremely cute and all I could do was smile.
Hey, TEC Sports Page. I have an idea! How about
instead of filling a third of your spread on a Western
Carolina University jersey retiring, you talk about the
NCAA March Madness - something all students are
interested in and is actually relevant. Thanks.
I want my spring break back. Please?
To the person who was complaining about people
from MD or NJ, or as you called us "Northerners. I
am pretty sure you learn where the Mason Dixon line
is in elementary school. Maryland is not a Northern
state. It is the first Southern state. I just thought
maybe you would like to know.
What makes you so sure of yourself? You think that
every girl is to bow down and you expect me to just
stick around while you decide who you want to date
or screw around with.
Sometimes I wish TEC actually would put my photo
beside the rant. Then everyone would Know exactly
where I stand. I'm not afraid for anyone to know 1
am the one they disagree with.
If I was a prospective minority student and I read the
Pirate Rant for a week, 1 would not even apply.
My bad, I guess you did have someone covering the debate.
People just told me no one was there and I didm see anyone
there. You guys were a day late on the story though.
I've got an idea for Campus Living: how about two
ply toilet tissue and soap that doesn't make my hands
feel like sand paper?
Pirate Rant is ruining my GPA. I spend more time
reading it and submitting my own rants than 1 do
on studying and listening in class!

Extended coverage of Clement Hall fire
Fire and a dramatic
rescue at Clement Hall
RACHEL KING
NEWS EDITOR
Around 3 p.m. yesterday,
residents of Clement Hall in the
West Neighborhood were roused
out of their daily routines by a
fire alarm. Upon evacuating the
building, they were stunhed to
see smoke rising from a third
story room.
This time, that alarm was no
drill. Greenville Fire and Rescue,
the ECU Police Department and
other emergency services crew-
members arrived on scene within
minutes in response to the fire,
and what unfolded thereafter
resembles a scene from an action
film.
After being ushered quickly
out of the building, both the
residents and gathering crowd of
students looked on as firefighters
battled the blaze within.
Rumors began to fly about
the source of the fire, but until
the Greenville Fire Department
releases its official findings, all
anyone can do is speculate.
"We heard that someone
had set a mattress on fire said
Kristie Pope, sophomore political
science major and Clement Hall
resident.
"The girl's roommate whose
room had caught on fire came
in, saw the bed on fire and began
to yell for help
What the growing crowd
did not seem to realize, at least
initially, was that on the ninth
floor, one Clement Hall resident
was stranded.
Rachelle Lowry, freshman
was first spotted moving from
room to room while trying to
attract attention to herself so
that she could be rescued.
After several minutes, she
took matters into her own hands
as she removed the screen out of
her window in an effort to get to
some fresh air. The smoke bil-
lowed out behind her as firefight-
ers fought their way up, floor by
floor, to reach her.
Simultaneously, firefight-
ers raised an extension ladder
from the back of their vehicle to
extract the young lady from the
smoldering building.
Lowry received support from
two firefighters in the smoky
room behind her and a fire-
fighter awaiting her on the ladder
as she climbed precariously from
the building to the ladder with-
out incident.
Upon securing Lowry on the
ladder, the large crowd below
raised a cheer of approval and
praise for her rescuers.
After climbing down the long $
extension ladder and flanked by
three firefighters, she was on the
ground again within minutes,
where she was given oxygen via
a mask, presumably for smoke
inhalation.
Around 3:45 p.m Lowry was
taken to Pitt County Memorial
Hospital to be treated for smoke
inhalation. Her condition is
unknown.
The other residents escaped
Clement Hall without any prob-
lems or injuries, although, for
some, it was a scary experience.
"I had just walked back from
class with the girl whose room
had caught on fire, and as soon
as I opened the door to the third
floor from the stairwell, I smelled S
V)
smoke said Erin Gamble, fresh-
man special education major.
"Someone said there was a
fire smoke flew everywhere
Clement Hall closed after
the fire. It is predicted that it
will open again, at least for some
students, sometime today if all
goes well.
"The fire damage itself was
contained to the room it began
in said John Durham, univer-
sity spokesman.
"There is, of course, exten-
sive smoke and water damage
throughout the rest of the build-
ing" ?
Durham confirmed that the P
room the blaze began in was j
room 317.

of travelers increases creating
further economic growth for the
industry.
Dr. Edgell is one of the most
recognized leaders in the indus-
try, having more than 30 years
of experience in the field of
tourism. In addition to being one
of the architects of the National
Tourism Policy Act of 1981,
Edgell was also Senior Executive
Director of the U.S. Travel and
Tourism Administration and
served as the Acting Under Secre-
tary of Commerce for Travel and
Tourism. Further, he served as
the first Commissioner of Tour-
ism for the U.S. Virgin Islands
upon nomination.
Dr. Edgell has devoted his life
to the tourism industry through a
number of different perspectives
including academic, business
and government. His book aims
to set a standard for developing
tourism programs and challenges
them to find the balance between
the economic growth of the
industry and the integrity of the
cultures and environments that
are affected. While he encourages
these new standards, he suggests
there is no single model that has
universal applications. However,
Dr. Thoric Cederstrom, vice
president of Counterpart Inter-
national, finds Dr. Edgell's book
to be a highly useful tool. "This
book will become the reference
standard for future discussions on
sustainable tourism. With many
of the world's unique sites coming
under increasing demographic
and environmental pressures,
this book is a most welcome addi-
tion to this emerging field
Dr. Edgell's book was pub-
lished earlier this month through
Haworth Press Inc. Edgell will be
appearing at Barnes and Noble
Booksellers in Greenville on May
4 at 7 p.m. to announce his new

minutes and will then take ques-
tions for all those interested in
learning more about the book or
for those students contemplating
a career in the tourism field.

Researcher predicts future of preclinical cancers
i
(KRT) Richard Schilsky has
a recurring fantasy that cancer
will someday be a manageable dis-
ease, like diabetes. Maybe even a
curable disease, like strep throat.
X-rays and ultrasound - crude
imaging tests that detect tumors
big enough to be seen by the
naked eye - will be history. Blood
and saliva tests will be able to
discover genetic abnormalities
before they cause cells to start
multiplying out of control.
And doctors will have a stash
of molecular tools that can target
and destroy cancer cells selec-
tively, the same way penicillin
targets streptococcus bacteria.
One of the nation's foremost
cancer researchers, Schilsky is
methodically working toward
that day - a time when preven-
tion, early detection and suc-
cessful treatment of cancer are
commonplace.
"I predict that, IS years from
now, we won't be treating so
many advanced cancers Schil-
sky says. "Our focus will be
on treating preclinical cancers
- essentially, on prevention.
"That's where the field is
moving. If we're successful, fewer
cases will be diagnosed and out-
comes will be better. People will
die of something else
He should know. As a professor
of oncology and associate dean for
clinical research at the University of
Chicago, Schilsky, 55, is the princi-
pal investigator for nearly a dozen
clinical trials. But as chairman of a
cooperative cancer research group
known as CALGB, he's Involved
with about 100 ongoing trials at
any given time, with an additional
50 or so in development.
He commands a budget of
some $15 million per year, most
of it from the National Institutes
of Health. That's more than any
other medical researcher in the
state, and it puts him among the
top researchers in the country in
government grants.
Slowly, painstakingly, he has
helped build the body of knowledge
that informs how cancer patients
are treated today, and that offers
insights into how they will be
treated tomorrow. He has time for
little else. His wife, Naperville, 111
native Cynthia Schum Schilsky,
concedes, "He needs a vacation
In a clinic at the Univer-
sity of Chicago Hospitals one
afternoon, Schilsky moves from
room to room, checking on
about a dozen patients. Most
have advanced cancer and are
hoping to gain a few extra
months from an experimental
treatment. To each, he explains
that the new drug may not help
and could have nasty side effects.
"You're not doing patients a
service if you don't lay out real-
istic expectations says the New
York native, whose accent retains
a hint of Manhattan.
Schilsky is full of gratitude
and praise for the individuals
who volunteer for clinical trials,
which may be one reason patients
consider him a saint.
In a chemotherapy suite, the
doctor stops to see Michael Pas-
salaqua, a 63-year-old pancreatic
cancer patient. The man's cancer
has spread to his lungs and has
stopped responding to conven-
tional therapy. So Passalaqua has
joined a trial of an experimental
drug known as EMD 121974.
Passalaqua has completed
two 21-day treatment cycles.
Schilsky tells him and his wife
that the cancer has remained
stable since his previous check-up
a good sign.
Schilsky pulls out his stetho-
scope and asks the patient, "Can
I have you bend forward so I can
listen to your back?"
"You can have anything you
want, including our kids says Violet
Passalaqua with a perfectly straight
face as her husband complies.
Michael Passalaqua died a
few weeks later, of pneumonia.
But his 50-year-old widow is still
singing Schilsky's praises.
"He never lied to my hus-
band she says. "He said the
experimental drug might not
prolong his life, but it would
preserve his quality of life. And
he was true to his word.
"Mike never lost weight, never
got sick. He was still crawling
around under the dining room
table, playing cowboys and Indi-
ans with our grandchildren the
day before he got pneumonia.
"Dr. Schilsky gave me so
many good memories, and for
that I thank him every day
Each time he enters an exam-
ining room, Schilsky introduces
himself politely and takes a chair.
He crosses his legs, folds his hands
in his lap and settles in as if he has
all the time in the world to answer
the patient's questions.
But there aren't enough hours
in the day. On a typical clinic
day, Schilsky arrives at the hospi-
tal at 7:45 a.m in time to check
overnight e-mail. He may have
rounds or may work in his office
until lunchtime. Then he grabs a
bowl of soup and reads his new e-
mail. He gets to the clinic at 1:15
p.m. and sees outpatients until 6
or 7. Then he heads back to the
office to catch up on more e-mail,
snail mail, phone messages.
Afterward, Schilsky drives
home to La Grange, 111 has
dinner (if he's lucky, his wife and
perhaps one of their two daugh-
ters will keep him company) and
goes back to work. The schedule
does not seem strange to him;
it is modeled after some of his
influential mentors, including
John Ultman, a professor at the
University of Chicago when he
was in medical school. "I was
always inspired by his work ethic
and passion Schilsky says.
He spends two days a week
at the Chicago headquarters
of CALGB, Cancer and Leuke-
mia Group B. It's the oldest of
the clinical research coopera-
tives sponsored by the National
Cancer Institute, with 3,000
oncology specialists at 250 hos-
pitals around the country.
The group has mounted large,
multicenter studies that resulted
in the approval of three new
cancer drugs since 1997, and
many of its research findings are
now the standard of care. Perhaps
more important, it has done long-
term tumor biology studies that
have identified targets for future
drugs.

Johnny Depp shines in The Libertine'
Johnny Depp Is the main character in the film The Libertine.
This unacknowledged
film makes a bold
statement
MARIANNE BARROW
STAFF WRITER
Although common thoughts
of the 17th century are of glori-
fied kings, queens and castles,
Johnny Depp's dead-on por-
trayal of the Earl of Rochester in
The Libertine sheds a new light
on the dark ages.
The previews boasted that
The Libertine was "the most con-
troversial film of the year and
after my careful viewing of the
film I can safely say that "con-
troversial" doesn't do it justice.
It was based off of a play
written by Stephen Jeffreys and
originally starred John Malkov-
lch and Martha Plimpton. How-
ever, this particular version stars
every girl's dream man.
The supporting cast of
Samantha Morton, playing
Elizabeth Barry, and John Mal-
kovich, as King Charles II, com-
plement Depp well.
Depp's brilliant on-screen
appearance is matched with
the commanding theme of the
movie: sex and all the things
everyone's afraid to talk about.
John Wilmot, or The Earl of
Rochester (Depp), is a savy 17th
century poet whose passion for
the theater is almost as strong as
his infatuation with women. In
his hand there is always a.glass
of wine and from his mouth you
can always expect something
brazen and straightforward.
Wilmot does not put on
a front for anyone, and the
screenwriters wasted no time in
getting this message across. The
very first take is of John Wilmot
sitting in the dark by himself
giving his own prologue!
"Allow me to be frank at the
commencement. You will not
like me. The gentlemen will be
envious and the ladies will be
repelled Wilmot has no prob-
lem getting down to the lesser
known gritty, promiscuous side
of the 1600s when prostitution
was basically implied for single
and married men, including
the king.
A word of warning though,
this picture is not for the conser-
vative or PG-rated crowd.
To go along with the shock-
ing revelation of the time period,
there is no shortage of foul
language, nudity or sex scenes.
But phallic symbols aside, The
Libertine reflects a deeper mean-
ing and the uncovering of what
everyone always presumed was a
more innocent time period.
To compliment the multi-
faceted storyline, there couldn't
have been a better pick of cast
members. Depp is unquestion-
ably one of the best actors of our
time. He has an incredible talent
for being so in tune with his
character that you completely
forget he's an actor and not the
person he's playing.
This specific performance
was so seamless that after the
credits stopped rolling and
Depp reappeared on the screen
with his final words, "How do
you like me now? I still found
myself sitting there in awe.
With a mixture of amazing
acting directed by Laurence
Dunmore and a gutsy storyline,
The Libertine has definitely left
an impression on its viewers.
This picture is a rare look into
history when a grimy and almost
vulgar era has been glossed over
by more romantic ideas of the
prince and princess. For a truly
eye-opening experience, this
film is highly recommended.

Finally, some teasing
you can truly enjoy
The Big Tease is making
rock music fun again
LIZ FULTON
STAFF WRITER
Finally reviving the nearly
extinct genre of live and enjoy-
able rock music, The Big Tease has
arrived to fill the void.
Hailing from eastern Tennes-
see, this four-man band infuses
ska and funk elements with good
time rock'n'roll and a dash of pop.
Normally, debut releases
starts off strong and then taper
off somewhere around song
number five. Beautiful Addic-
tion actually gets better as it
progresses.
It begins with its title track,
"Beautiful Addiction which con-
jures up images of a band playing
a fraternity party full of fun-
loving girls and good time boys.
In short, The Big Tease would be
cast perfectly as the house band
for a movie about Hollywood's
version of college life.
Fans of Incubus' second
album S.C.l.E.N.C.E. will appre-
ciate the groove of track three,
"Fact or Fiction The intro reso-
nates with the same jazzy funk
that is found in their often
overlooked but phenomenal song
"Anti-Gravity
The song to focus on, though,
is "The Fever Its chorus is so
catchy and lighthearted, 1 have
been unable to stop singing it in
the shower, causing my room-
mate extreme discomfort. With
its Spanish trumpet intro and
slow buildup to the hook, there
is nothing about this song that
can't be enjoyed. Ironically, it is
a warning to young lovers about
rushing into sex too early.
Another notable song that
many college students can iden-
tify with is song six, "D.U.I It
tells the story of remorse from
driving under the influence and

I have never been more con-
fused by music in my life. Usually,
1 can fit a brand of music into
a genre effortlessly. However,
Dirty5Thirty's new album, It's
Not Gonna Be Like It Was Before,
has me utterly confounded. To say
that the Chapel Hill sextet has a
unique style all their own would
be a radical understatement.
After using the CD as a
soundtrack for studying and
Halo 2, the best way I could
describe their music is jazz
with an urban twist combined
with vocals that are similar to
Outkast at some points and
even Linkin Park in others.
Let me assure you that this
label stuffs the album in too small
a box. I should have expected
this from a band that claims
influence from at least 16 other
artists ranging from The Grate-
ful Dead to Talib Kweli.To be
honest, if they
said they took
inspiration
from Whit-
ney Houston, I
would believe it.
Putting
my bafflement
aside, let's get
down to the
good stuff. Is
this album
killer, or does it
suck? Let me be
honest: if you
like listening
to Top 40 hits
and own every
Now CD, do not
buy this album.

should be reserved for serious
music fans only.

much time to say it. For instance,
they enlighten listeners on their
harsh lives in "What" and break
down the problems with our
democracy on "Take Control
This gives the listener two
choices: try to keep up with
the message or just sit back and
listen to these guys jam. When
I concentrated on the lyrics, I
realized the first thing that
would deter the average listener.

so much clarity also takes
away from the groove a little.
That being said, I would
rather an artist say what he
wants than water down his
ideas. Truly, "Hold Up My Fist,
Cease and Desist" is deeper
than "Shake that Laffy Taffy
The other reason I would
recommend this album to open-
minded individuals is the music
itself. After 15 seconds of the
intro, I could tell that this band
knows how to write music.
Of course, the vocalists are
featured throughout the album,
but bassist Chetan Reddy, drum-
mer John Davis and guitarists
Josh Gangway and Zacn Warken-
tin get to showcase their talents
throughout the album in "Wel-
come to Hello" and "Faced
Here's the problem for all
of you Bob 93.3 listeners: this
band can groove, this band
can jam, but Dirty5Thirty will
not write you a catchy hook
a la Kanye West. Believe me,
they could, but that would
require changing their style
and Dirty5Thirty is unwilling
to compromise on that subject.
Overall, I am impressed by
this album, which was released
earlier this month. DirtySThirty

Your Name in Vain: 'Six counts of skin deep beauty'
Screaming from eastern
North Carolina
AARON BORREGO
STAFF WRITER
Well hello, one and all. It
is time to venture into a new
realm of music for Mr. Borrego.
This type of music is a blend
of hard-core, punk and metal
and referred to affectionately as
"screamo or experimentalalter-
native rock.
I had the chance to listen to one
of Greenville's own, Your Name
in Vain, and the recently released
EP Six Counts of Skin Deep Beauty.
It is always nice to see people
in college making music and
keeping the creative juices flow-
ing at least while being subjected
to the rigors of higher learning.
Yes indeed, there are future
ECU alumni amongst these
guys. The previously mentioned
EP was released in December of
2005 and is a collection of six
I
well written and upbeat songs.
I do believe I like the album
mainly because it is a good
listen from beginning to end
with infectious titles such as
"Welcome to the Academy "Kiss
Me, Kill Me" and "Running Red
If you listen closely, a
great acoustic song is hiding
in the album somewhere.
Besides, I always like to sup-
port new artists from around
my own stomping ground in the
hope they will catch on with the
public who value non-disposable
music. This five piece band has
grown to have quite the cult fol-
lowing all their own. I have met
some of their fans who are well
adjusted, friendly and really into
the band's music.
Although I have never
attended one of this band's
shows, I do believe this EP has
changed my mind. I admittedly
acknowledge the fact that I have
stated that I do not like emo or
songs about relationships, but
that doesn't mean that every
band or every song a band makes
is necessarily about females
and.therefore, ticking me off.
1 would like to say that I was
pleasantly surprised by how
much I liked this band for its
great music and very catchy
lyrics. Even though 1 don't like it
when my music growls at me, as
all the songs on this album do
do like that there is much more to
the lyrical delivery in this album
than just screaming.
The complete contrasts
between the "growling" and
singing is truly night and day
and lends some complexity to
the music that I really enjoyed.
A very big plus is the music itself.
The blend of punk, emo and
metal elements work very nicely
together to emphasize the tone
and message of each song on
the album.
I was approached with this
album when it first came out to
view its contents. Being the smart

Joe Satriani's new album
THE EAST CAROLINIAN
New album: All hype
AARON BORREGO
STAFF WRITER
It has recently come to my
attention that Joe Satriani is
about to have another album hit
the markets on March 14 titled
Super Colossal. This is to mark
the celebration of 20 years in the
business for Satriani.
Upon its release, Satriani is
to make appearances at record
stores along the west coast then
launch a U.S. tour in Denver
on April 1. However, as a bit of
advice, don't go out to buy this
or any ticket he is offering.
This lack of an album is high-
lighted by tracks number four
and 12, titled "Redshift Riders"
and "A Love Eternal" respectively.
Even these songs can't pull this
"work of art" out of the trash, but
1 guess this is just where its right-
ful place is.
I guess Satriani won't be cel-
ebrating 20 years in the business
to worldwide fame and praise for
his newly released musical mas-
terpiece. Well, it was a master-
piece of something all right - just
not anything my editor would let
me get away with saying.
People who like Joe Satri-
ani and his music will be very
disappointed by this less-edgy,
pop-laced, depressing and utterly
bland display of old age. I imagine
that listeners expect more from
a brilliant composer, especially
one who does not create lyrics.
Someone needs to tell him,
just because you are so accom-
plished in the world of music
doesn't mean that you are free or
above having one original thought
burden your "creative" mind.
It is hard to not express my
discontent with any artist who
decides trendy pop music is a
better option than original mate-
rial. Satriani's genius was first
displayed to the world on Not of
this Earth in 1986.
The last album track can be
described as such: techno Native
American chant inspired by Rob
Zombie and trying to emulate
Queen. Although an interesting
combination, it lacks any original-
ity and basically is found wanting.
I recommend all who are
reading look for an alternative
album to quench your audio
palette.

has put together 15 tracks of pure,
original emotion. The diction is
potent. The beat gets my head
nodding and my foot tapping. I
still can't get over how this band
"merges so many sounds into one
minifying symphony.
J More than that, I truly admire
5irty5Thirty's ability to accom-
lish this in an industry that's
so willing to give in to the main-
stream just to make money.
This group has a tremendous
potential. It is my belief that if
they found a way to fit their lyrics
in seamlessly with the rest of
the music, this band could make
some serious noise on a national
level. Even so, It's Not Gonna Be
Like It Was Before is a solid LP.
Anyone who enjoys music that
makes them think or wants a
CD that they can chill to should
buy this as soon as possible. Since
this album helped me slay while I
was playing Halo 2,1 give it seven
assassinations out of 10.

the hand of fortune that pre-
vented any serious injury from
happening. The song is presented
in the style of a personal nar-
rative that doesn't try to teach
a lesson but simply relates the
singer to his audience.
What's so great about Beautiful
Addiction is that no song sounds
exactly like any other on the
album. Song number 10, "Old
Man Winter even takes on a
jam band style that brings the
promise of an amazing extended
live performance that could go for
at least 12 minutes.
All the while, there is an
undercurrent of the band's South-
ern roots and the influence of
coming out of Knoxville, Tenn.
Somehow, they managed to create
a suitable blend of insightful lyrics
and complex rhythms into some-
thing completely likeable to fans
and non-fans of rock music alike.
Their clean-cut image was made
for playing college house parties
and that is what they do best.
As of late, The Big Tease has
not branched out much from
playing fraternity parties in Ten-
nessee, Mississippi and Alabama.
Hopefully the release of Beautiful
Addiction will remedy that, as it
is a perfect addition to any rock
fan's library. It cannot be pigeon-
holed into one of the numerous
subgenres of rock, which makes
it appealing to listeners of Wide-
spread Panic or The Strokes.
Sooner rather than later, The
Big Tease will hopefully make its
way to the Emerald City and the
campus of ECU to expose us to
their infectious and upbeat music.
Until then, Beautiful Addiction
is available on ITunes and also
through their Web site, bigtease-
band.com.
One listen to their CD and
you'll be hooked no teasing.

guy I am, I immediately shot it
down and didn't give it a chance
because "I hate emo Leah: you
know who you are and what you
were talking about or at least you
did when recommending this
band to me.
I guess I was too busy being
an old goat to listen with an open
mind until now.
People, don't make a silly mis-
take like I did. Support our local
bands and go watch their shows,
which are played everywhere in
the Carolinas from what I under-
stand. I think you will be happy
you took a chance and listened to
something different. If you want

Bucs tune up for Friday scrimmage
Young
(SID) ECU Educational
Foundation (Pirate Club) Execu-
tive Director Dennis Young has
been promoted to Associate
Athletics Director according to
an announcement from Ath-
letics Director Terry Holland
Wednesday.
Young's primary responsibility
will be the planning and execution
of all major fund-raising efforts to
meet the department's future
capital and endowment needs.
"Dennis is a valuable addition
to our leadership team as this
department faces an ever-chang-
ing and challenging environ-
ment Holland said. "Our goal is
to compete at the highest level in
Division I so it is imperative for
our athletic program to establish
itself as a leader in the quest for
major gifts
Under Young's leadership,
the Pirate Club has raised more
than $35 million in capital
g'ifts to fund the expansion of
Qowdy-Ficklen Stadium, build
the Murphy Center and construct
tiie state-of-the-art Clark-LeClair
Baseball Stadium. During his IS
years as Executive Director, the
Pirate Club annual fund cam-
paigns have also experienced a
significant rise from $500,000
tp nearly $4 million for athletic
scholarships.
Young, who will begin his
hew duties as a member of the
athletic department's leadership
team on July 1, has served as
Executive Director of the Pirate
Club since 1991.
Holland cited Young's experi-
ence and effectiveness with the
Pirate Club as major strengths for
(he new position.
"Dennis Young is a former
football player and a true Pirate
in every sense of the word
Holland added. "He knows and
understands our donor base
and is nationally respected and
honored for his fund-raising
abilities. Allowing him to focus
his considerable skills on major
gifts will pay huge dividends for
ECU Athletics
A native of Winston-
Salem, NC, Young returned
to Greenville after earning his
undergraduate degree in account-
ing from ECU in 1969. He also
played football for the Pirates
under the direction of the late
Clarence Stasavich, earning let-
ters in 1966 and 1967.
The Pirate Club Executive
Committee will establish a search
Committee to identify a replace-
ment for Young immediately.
NFL Offseason Changes
- Owners voted 29-3 to limit end
zone demonstrations, including those
using props, prolonged celebrations,
and celebrating on the ground. Moves
like that will now draw a 15-yard
unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.
Spiking, dunking or spinning the ball
after a score is still allowed, as is
leaping into the stands.
- Down by contact calls will be
reviewed by replay to determine if the
ball came out before the ballcarrier
was down, and who recovered it.
- Pass rushers will be prohibited
from hitting a passer in the knee
or below unless they are blocked
ihto him. The officiating department
showed low hits that caused serious
injuries to Cincinnati's Palmer,
Pittsburgh's Ben Roethlisberger and
Tampa Bay's Brian Griese, although
In all cases, those would not draw
penalties because the rushers were
blocked in such a way that they could
not avoid the hits.
- The horse-collar rule now bans
tacklers from taking down ballcarriers
from ihe rear by tugging inside their
jerseys.
- Prohibiting defensive players
from lining up directly over center on
field-goal and extra-point attempts to
avoid injuries to long snappers.

A group of Pirates take a break during one of the team's spring practices.
Pirates hold light practice,
focus on individual drills
ERIC QILMORE
SENIOR WRITER
The Pirate football team wore
shorts during a light practice
session in preparation for their
second official intra-squad scrim-
mage on Friday evening. The
coaching staff tried to correct
mental mistakes during the 140-
minute session, which featured
mostly individual drills.
After a rough scrimmage-like
practice in full pads on Monday,
ECU Head Coach Skip Holtz
kidded that he feared a revolt if
he continued to demand more
hitting.
The 11th of 15 total practices
coincided with the first public
release of the two-deep depth
chart. According to Holtz, the
depth chart is hinging with every
practice while adding emphasis
on the impending scrimmages.
"They're where they are
because of their performance
said Holtz about some surprise
starters.
"But the nanres can change
too. If people start to feel like I'm
a backup), and then they don't
perform at that level, they'll be
Imoved down)
The changes are rampant on
defense where the linebackers
and two secondary positions
seem to be rotating daily. A crop
of three fresh faces currently
anchors the first linebacking
unit. Redshirt freshman Jeremy
Chambliss, junior college new-
comer Fred Wilson and little-
used Quentin Cotton are listed
as starters.
In the secondary, junior Travis
Williams overtook sophomore
Stacy Walls, who struggled in the
first scrimmage. Williams began
camp as a third unit cornerback,
but has excelled to the top unit.
On the defensive line, the
numbers are thin due to position
changes and injuries. However,
with three guys waiting to become
eligible and five freshmen arriv-
ing in the summer, the line has
precious time to solidify spots.
"Everybody that's out here has
to prove themselves said senior
defensive end Shauntae Hunt.
"When (spring practice is
over with, we're going to have
some guys ready to play. I keep
telling these guys not to get
passed up. Nobody likes it when
you've been practicing during
spring ball and then someone
starts practicing in the summer)
and when the season comes;
they're sitting in front of you
Offensively, playing expe-
rience has given Holtz more
structure. Three-year starter
James Pinkney has impressed by
his improved decision making.
Surprisingly, the smoke is begin-
ning to clear behind Pinkney.
Sophomore Patrick Pinkney (no
relation) missed the 2005 season
with multiple shoulder surgeries
and is listed as the co-backup
with redshirt freshman Brett
Clay.
"It's come from hard work,
learning everyday and learning
from the other quarterbacks
said Patrick Pinkney.
Thomas Wingenbach, a career
offensive line backup beat out
converted defensive tackle Fred
Hicks at the center slot. Junior
tackle Josh Coffman and redshirt
freshman Terence Campbell fill
the other holes created from
graduation.
At tight end, Jay Sonnhalter
is listed over converted quarter-
back Davon Drew. Pat Dosh and
Kort Shankweiler, the two other
converted quarterbacks, are listed
respectively at fullback.
The team will take Thursday
off before the scrimmage on
Friday, which begins at approxi-

Fielder (left) and Hermida (right) are expected to make immediate impacts this season with Milwaukee and Florida respectively.
Fielder, Hermida, Barfield headline Major
League Baseball's 2006 crop of rookies
(AP) A powerful Prince
leads this season's talented group
of youngsters who could make
an immediate impact and be
crowned as baseball's top rookies.
Prince Fielder, the son of
former home run king Cecil
Fielder, is stepping in as Milwau-
kee's starting first baseman after
the Brewers traded l.yle Overbay
in the offseason. The left-handed
hitting slugger already has shown
he's up to the challenge, with
the same strong, bulky build
and power at the plate as his Big
Daddy.
"I look at it as a positive thing
because when people have high
expectations, I see it as they just
want you to do well Fielder said.
"You can't let the pressure bother
you. You just want to go out and
have a great season
Fielder is one of a hand-
ful of first-year players being
counted on to perform right
away as starters, including
Arizona second baseman Josh
Barfield, Florida outfielder Jeremy
Hermida and Seattle catcher
Kenji Johjima.
Barfield, the son of former
home run champ Jesse Barfield,
beat out veterans Mark Bellhorn
and Bobby Hill despite having no
major league at-bats.
"He's done everything you
could ask for this spring Padres
GM Kevin Towers said. "He's
played great defense, he's had
timely hits with runners in scor-
ing position, he's run the bases
very, very well
New York Mets right-hander
Brian Bannister, son of former
major league pitcher Floyd Ban-
nister, beat out Aaron Heilman
for the No. 5 spot in the starting
r
rotation.
Other top rookies with
famous bloodlines include Ari-
zona shortstop Stephen Drew,
brother of Dodgers outfielder
J.D. Drew; and Tampa Bay out-
fielder Delmon Young, brother
of Detroit's Dmitri Young. Both
will begin the season in the
minors, but could be in the bigs
by midseason.
The new-look Marlins are
relying heavily on youngsters,
with at least five rookies among
their eight position players - Her-
mida, who had a pinch-hit grand
t
slam in his first major league
at-bat; highly touted shortstop
Hanley Ramirez; first baseman
Mike Jacobs, who hit 11 homers
with the Mets last year; catcher
Josh Willingham, and center
fielder Reggie Abercrombie.
"A lot of people are looking
at us as the young team that's
not going to do much Hermida
said. "We're going to go out there
and work hard and surprise some
people

in Japan, where he won seven
consecutive Gold Gloves. But
he'll make history on opening
day when he becomes the first
Japanese-born catcher to play
in the majors. The 29-year-old
hit .308 or better the last three
seasons.
"We understand the difficulty
of the transition he is facing, but
he is handling it very well
manager Mike Hargrove.said.
Here's a quick look at some of
this year's other top rookies:
- Brian Anderson, OF, White
Sox. Chicago had so much con-
fidence in his abilities, gritty
center fielder Aaron Rowand
was traded to Philadelphia for
Jim Thome.
- Matt Cain, RHP, Giants.
Enters season as No. 4 starter
after going 2-1 with a 2.33 ERA
in seven starts last year.
- Joey Devine, RHP, Braves.
With a 95 mph fastball and
nasty slider, could be Atlanta's
closer of the near future. But had
rough debut, becoming the first
pitcher to give up grand slams
in first two appearances, and
then surrendering season-ending
homer to Houston's Chris Burke
in playoffs.
- Anderson Hernandez, 2B,
Mets. Set to be in starting lineup
on opening day because of injury
to incumbent Kaz Matsui, despite
l-for-18 debut last season.
- Conor Jackson, IB, Dia-
mondbacks. Bat couldn't be kept
in minors anymore, especially
after he hit better than .350 in
Triple-A. Assumes first base job,
knocking veteran Tony Clark
back to bench.
- Ian Kinsler, 2B, Rangers.
Will fill spot vacated when four-
time All-Star Alfonso Soriano
was traded to Washington. Has
some pop, and improved deferv
sively after not playing second
base until last season.
t
- Jonathan Papelbon, RHP,
Red Sox. Will begin season in
Boston's bullpen, but could find
way into rotation if Curt Schil-
ling, Josh Beckett, David Wells
or Matt Clement struggles witn
injuries.
- Justin Verlander, RHlt;
Tigers. First-round draft choicf;
in 2004 cruised through system
reached majors last season and!
will be No. 5 starter.

- Ryan Zimmerman, 3B
Nationals. Scouts said his defense!
was major league-ready in cot
lege, and he's already considered
one of top-fielding third basev
men in game. His bat's pretty!
good, too, hitting better than;
.300 in three stops - including
with Washington - after getting
drafted in June.
Duke president meets with
students about investigation
(AP) The president of Duke
University met Wednesday with
students who feel his suspension
of the lacrosse team during a rape
investigation was not enough,
urging them to be patient while
police look into the matter.
"I don't want to say I'm sat-
isfied, but I will say that what
happened in there makes me
feel like we're moving in a good
direction sophomore Bridgette
Howard said after the roughly
hourlong session.
The meeting between Presi-
dent Richard Brodhead and a
few dozen students was closed to
all media except Duke's student
newspaper.
Brodhead suspended the
highly ranked team from play
until the school learns more
about accusations that team
members attacked an exotic
dancer hired to perform at an
off-campus party. The alleged
victim, a student at nearby North
Carolina Central University, has
told police she was pulled into a
bathroom, beaten, choked and
raped by three men at a March
13 party, where she and another
Duke President Richard Brodhead takes questions during a press
conference concerning the investigation of the men's lacrosse team.

i AD Joe Alleva pauses during a news conference
dancer were hired to perform.
Police collected DNA samples
with a cheek swab from 46 mem-
bers of the lacrosse team last
week; the 47th player, the only
black member, wasn't tested
because the victim said her
attackers were white.
No one has been charged, and
the team's captains have said the
tests will clear players.
Police said three players who
live at the house where the party
took place spoke with investiga-
tors and voluntarily provided
samples March 16. A scheduled
meeting between detectives
a-nd the rest of the team was
later canceled by the players'
ajtorney, and District Attorney
Mike Nifong said Wednesday the
players still refuse to speak with
investigators.
News of the attack has sparked
days of protest at Duke and in
Durham, culminating Tuesday
in Brodhead's decision to suspend
the team. He stressed the suspen-
sion was not a punishment, but
a response to the inappropriate
nature of playing while the inves-
tigation is ongoing.
Those comments led about
100 students to approach Brod-
head after Tuesday night's
announcement and demand his
administration deliver a stronger
response.
"We understand that the legal
system is that you are innocent
until proven guilty said sopho-
more Kristin High. "But people
are nervous and afraid that these
people are going to get away
with what they did because of a
wealthy privilege, or male privi-
lege, or a white privilege
Their protests led to Wednes-
day's meeting inside the campus'
black cultural center, where par-
ticipants said Brodhead urged
patience as police continue to
investigate.
Graduate student Michelle
Christian complained Duke is
continuing to downplay the
alleged attack.
"They need presidents, they
need administrators, they need
faculty, to tell them that it was
wrong behavior and that they
are not going to be coddled
because they are athletes, because
they come from privileged back-
grounds, because they have
money Christian told Durham's
WTVD-TV.
Later in the day, sophomore
Jeff Shaw wore a Duke lacrosse
T-shirt on campus in support of
his friends on the team.
"Even if it's true, it's three
guys and unfortunately, this is
going to be a label the team is
going to carry Shaw said.
The incident was expected to
heighten interest in an annual
campus rally against sexual vio-
lence planned for Wednesday
night.
Also Wednesday, Brodhead
apologized for language used
by those at the party. A woman
calling 911 on the night of the
party told police that men out-
side of the house called out to
her and another woman using a
racial slur.
"It's disgusting Brodhead
said in a statement. "Racism and
its hateful language have no place
in this community

mately 4:30 pm.
Friends in high places:
Senior Eric Graham's offensive
tackle expertise dates back to a
former friendly rivalry. Graham
was a high school teammate of
former N.C. State defensive end
Mario Williams at Richlands
High School in Onslow Co. Both
2002 graduates, Graham and the
potential No. 2 NFL Draft pick
have been swapping e-mails.
"He said he was trying to
make it Graham said with a half-
smile. Asked further, he said that
Williams has to be making it.
Injury update:
Chris Johnson underwent
successful surgery on his neck
during the week. His surgery was
described as "tightening of the
nuts and bolts" of the neck. He
5 will remain sidelined for the rest
of spring, but should be healthy
for the fall.
