Chancellor Ballard discusses future expansion and celebration plans.
ECU has unique strengths
that shine forth
CHRISTOPHER STEVENSON
STAFF WRITER
ECU is expanding every year in
a variety of ways, and ECU Chan-
cellor Steve Ballard is now at the
forefront of the expansion.
Ballard has
emphasized that
the biggest goals
for ECU to reach
have to do with the
university's long
term capital plan.
"We have a
great opportunity
right now to build
the future of the
institution said
Ballard.
Ballard said
that the three major
priorities of capital improvement are
a dental school, a new academic
building that will be a major leader-
ship center for education, and busi-
ness and a performing arts center.
Ballard wants to get the ball
rolling, in a figurative sense, this
upcoming academic year. Ballard
S emphasized getting these buildings
8 approved by the board of governors
and getting the funding started
g will make a huge difference for the
future of ECU.
Ballard has a clear vision of
where he wants to see the university
10 years from now.
"I want to be seen as a national
institution, but not a national
institution that copies any other
institution Ballard said. Ballard
said ECU has unique strengths that
shine forth to the public.
Ballard says universities are
the perfect institutions for tomor-
row because uni-
versities create
knowledge and
know how to
communicate
knowledge effec-
tively to others.
"We generate
the innovations
that fuel tomor-
row Ballard
said.
Ballard said
ECU is great on
the innovation
side with a variety of technological
products and advancements that
include a technology that cures stut-
tering, cancer treatment advance-
ments and surgical advancements.
Ballard said the university has
big plans for celebrating ECU's
100th birthday next year.
"We want to step back and just
take some pride in where we been in
a hundred years he said. ECU's cen-
tennial celebration will not only focus

Students take advantage of summer to study abroad
Program offered year round
ERICA PLOUFFE LAZURE
CONTRIBUTING WRITER
This summer, thousands of ECU
students will be on campus, earning
six credits in summer school.
Others will travel across coun-
try and beyond for vacation with
their friends and family.
Thanks to ECU's study abroad
options, a handful of students will
get to do both.
This summer, 135 ECU students
and 10 professors will travel to
Argentina, England, Turkey, Japan
and India. Next fall and spring,
approximately 140 ECU students
will go overseas. These students
represent less than 2 percent of
the 23,000 students at ECU, and
campus leaders hope to continue
to increase those numbers.
Terry Rodenberg, ECU's director
of international programs, hopes
the university's five year plan to
internationalize the curriculum
will encourage more educational
travel opportunities in the future
for students and faculty.
"The global challenges facing
today's generation of students make
study abroad a key component in their
university education Rodenberg said,

Guys and Dolls
June 27-July 1: A Musical Fable of
Broadway and based on a story
and characters of Damon Runyon,
this funny and romantic comedy-
considered by many to be the perfect
musical comedy-soars with the spirit
of Broadway as it introduces us to
a cast of vivid characters who have
become legends in the canon: Sarah
Brown, the upright but uptight "mission
doll out to reform the evildoers of
Time Square; Sky Masterson, the slick,
high-rolling gambler who woos her
on a bet and ends up falling in love;
Adelaide, the chronically ill nightclub
performer whose condition is brought
on by the fact she's been engaged
to the same man for 14 years; and
Nathan Detroit, her devoted fiance,
desperate as always to find a spot
for his infamous floating crap game.
Everything works out in the end, thanks
to the machinations of Abe Burrows
and Jo Swerling's hilarious, fast-paced
book and Frank Loesser's bright,
brassy, immortal score, which takes us
from the heart of Times Square to the
cafes of Havana, Cuba, and even into
the sewers of New York City.
The Fantasticks
July 11-15: The original production
opened on May 3, 1960 at the
Sullivan Street Playhouse in New
York's Greenwich Village where it's
still playing after 15,000 performances
making The Fantasticks is the longest-
running musical in the world! At the
heart of its breathtaking poetry and
subtle sophistication is a purity and
simplicity that results in a timeless
fable of love that manages to be
nostalgic and universal at the same
time. It's moving tale of young lovers
who become disillusioned, only tg
discover a more mature, meaningful
love is punctuated by a bountiful
series of catchy, memorable songs
With its minimal costumes, small band
and virtually non-existent set, The
Fantasticks is an intimate show that
engages the audience's imagination
and showcases a strong ensemble cast.
Alumni, friends honored by ecology department
Dinner held to recognize
recipients
CLAYTON BAUMAN
STAFF WRITER
The ECU College of Human
Ecology recognized multiple
alumni and friends from around
the community and beyond
for their professional success as
well as donated time and effort.
Held on April 29, the depart-
ment sponsored a dinner called
the Alumni and Friends Award
Dinner 2006.
According to a story in the Echo
5, the College of Human Ecology
newsletter, the awards were dis-
tributed by the five major academic
units of the Human Ecology depart-
ment and described as follows.
Recognized for their time and
effort spent around the community
as well as their close collabora-
tion with ECU and surrounding
infrastructure, were friends Mayor
Donald Parrott and city planner
Merill Flood.
The Dean's Choice was awarded

for the college.
According to the newsletter,
Mabe also chairs the colleges Mer-
chandising Advisory Board and is
also a member of the Executive Com-
mittee of the ECU Foundation Board.
Also honored were Dale Panaro
and Charles Snow. Panaro was hon-
ored by the Department of Child
Development and Family Relations.
Snow, a professor emeritus of
child development and family
relations, was awarded by the same
department.
"I felt that I've had a great
career at East Carolina University. I

to work and it's a wonderful place
to be said Snow, who worked at
the university for 27 years.
The Department of Crim-
inal Justice awarded alumnus

study abroad opportunities to more
students to help meet these needs
Many students who have trav-
eled abroad before believe more of
their classmates should try to make
it a part of their college education.
"A well-rounded education is
not possible without diversity said
Nabeel Arastu, a 20-year-old biol-
ogy major who will study abroad in
India this summer. "Only with this
exposure can we really learn about
the world in its true state, and not
the boxed-in environment of our
home community
Arastu and his classmate, Geof-
frey Handsfield, a physics major, had
envisioned spending the summer
visiting monasteries and religious
sites in Nepal, but weren't able to
plan it out. They are two of 16 stu-
dents who are accompanying ECU
religious studies professor Derek
Maher on a 32-day trip to India.
"I decided that if I only got to
see the Eastern Hemisphere once,
I should see a land with a billion
diverse people Handsfield said.
The students will spend time
in the Indian capitol of Delhi; tour
the Taj Mahal in Agra; visit the
ancient city of Varanasi, home of
the Ganges River; and spend a few
days in the village of Bodh Gaya,
the site of the Buddha's enlighten-
ment. The students will also spend
two weeks in Dharamsala, the
Tibetan exile community. They
have already started blog of their
travels and activitiesat: http:ecu-
in-india.blogspot.com.
India isn't the only place that
ECU students will visit. A group of
eight students will visit Ghana this
summer to contemplate "The Spell
of Africa: Ghana, the Slave Trade,
and African American Identity"
with ECU history professors David
Dennard and Kenneth Wilburn.
For Dennard, who teaches
African-American history and is a
scholar of the late W.E.B. DuBois,
visiting Ghana is an important
step in understanding the origins
of slavery and the land from which
slaves were taken. It is also the rest-
ing place of the civil rights advocate.
"Most of the slaves from Africa
were taken from the west coast
before they were brought across the
Atlantic and scattered throughout
America Dennard said. "Ghana,
called the Gold Coast, figured
prominently in this history
Maher, who is leading the trip
to India, said he had heard ECU
professor Calvin Mercer's stories
about his study abroad trips to
Egypt and Greece and wanted to
offer his students a view of a coun-
try he has come to love.
"India is, simply put, the single
most fascinating place on the face
of the earth Maher said. "This
country that values contemplative
silence in its religious traditions is
also rife with great busyness and
delightful chaos
In addition to the information
students will learn about differ-
ent cultures and countries, Maher
hopes a study abroad experience
will help students learn a thing
or two about themselves and the
world in which they live.
"I hope and anticipate each
student will come back with a
much broader view of what is on
the menu of possibilities for being
human Maher said. "That's one
lesson I hope they learn
Students will visit Great Britain
with Gregg Hecimovich, an ECU
English professor. Using a combina-
tion of Podcast lectures and tours of
historic sites, Hecimovich hopes to
help students to "locate" literary Eng-
land on their two-week excursion.
Professors from many disciplines
are taking students abroad. John
Tucker, professor of history, is taking
students to Japan to study its history
and culture; interior design profes-
sor Yaprak Sagdic is taking students
to Turkey to design a marketplace
with Turkish students; professor of
management Tope Bello is taking
students to Australia for exposure to
working in an international context.
Other professors taking students on
study abroad programs this summer
include Peter Johnstone (criminal
justice); Cynthia Bickley-Greene (art
education), Marcia Taylor (nutrition
and hospitality) and Susana Cas-
tano-Schultz (Spanish).
The Division of Continuing
Studies oversees the summer study
abroad efforts and plans are in
the works to offer Web site space
for each group to post its news at-

Summer is a
great time to
get ready for
grad school
Ten important tips to
consider when preparing
for graduate school
KIMBERLY BELLAMY
STAFF WRITER
While most students are spend-
ing their summers working, on the
beach, or just relaxing at home, the
Kaplan company, a leader in prepar-
ing students for higher education,
recommends that students should
also use the summer to prepare for
graduate school.
The Kaplan experts have put
together a list of the top 10 things
students should complete to ensure
that they will have a higher chance
to entrance in a graduate school.
According to Kaplan represen-
tatives, seniors who are planning
to apply for fall 2007 entry should
definitely start working on their
personal essay, getting letters of
recommendation, getting a copy of
their official transcript and taking
the GRE exam.

The GRE exam is a standardized
test that contains verbal reasoning
and mathematics sections. Most grad-
uate schools require scores from this
test before approving admission into
their schools according to Kaplan.
The more students competing
for admission into a certain area of
a graduate school, the more likely
the school will place more emphasis
on the GRE scores. A good score on
the exam can make you stand out
from the other students.
Students are strongly encour-
aged to take the exam as soon as
possible to avoid taking the new
GRE exam which will start in fall
2007. The new test will include
more difficult content such as more
complex reasoning questions and
data interpretation questions.
The test will also be longer.
The cost to take the exam now is
about $115, according to Kaplan
representatives.
Students who take the exam
are required to write two essays.
One essay is argumentative and the
other essay is based on an issue.
Underclassmen shouldn't pro-
crastinate about preparing for
graduate school. Kaplan suggests
that they choose classes that are
appropriate for their field of study,
and participating in independent
study and internships.
The second thing all students
should do is choose schedules care-
fully. Students should research pre-
requisites for the graduate programs
they are interested in. This will
ensure that they're not missing any.
Students should also make sure
that they have chosen the right grad-
uate program. The graduate program
should match their career goals.
Summer is the perfect time for
students to gain experience in area
that they will potentially work in by
doing internships and doing com-
munity service such as volunteering.
Students who have leadership
positions or who are active in an com-
mittee in an organization are planting
the groundwork for admission in a
graduate school according to Kaplan.
Schools look for students who
are involved in activities outside of
course work, show leadership and
demonstrate teamwork.
A good way for admissions
officers to get a good idea if you are
ready to enter graduate school is by
seeing portfolios and other evidence
of past work you've completed.
Participating in study aboard
programs is another factor that
Kaplan representatives suggest.
Kaplan recommends that stu-
dents broaden their reading and
critical writing skills by reading the
news daily and keeping a personal
journal. Both of these tips will pre-
pare students for the GRE exam and
the essay section.
The last important tip is apply
for financial aid to pay for graduate
school. Grants, loans and assistant-
ships are available.

exam or Kaplan, students can visit

on its historic past but also important
issues that will make the future a
good one at ECU, which includes
funding strategies for the university.
ECU currently relies a lot on state
funding, but the state's contribution
to ECU's total cost of education is
going to go down in the future.
Ballard said ECU needs to make
progress with other funding sources
like private giving as well as federal
and industrial support for research.
Concerning the centennial
celebration, Ballard wants to add
more sizzle and marketing to the
celebration festivities.
"We will spend a lot of time
in our centennial making sure our
vision is correct and making sure
we have a marketing and commu-
nication strategy that is correct
Ballard said.
The Clement Hall fire, this past
semester, was a hot topic of discus-
sion among students. Ballard fells
that the Clement Hall fire was han-
dled well, and said there was a great
show of teamwork among the city,
the ECU Police Department, student
affairs and facility employees to deal
with the situation.
"I would like to pay more atten-
tion to the future, and the future of
whether there is anything more we
can do to ensure that worse situa-
tions don't happen Ballard said.
Ballard said the investigation
concerning the cause of the fire is
still ongoing, but says when all the
data comes in on what caused the
fire, ECU will have a clearer picture
of the incident.
Ballard says when students
move on from college to pursue
their careers and dreams, they move
on as different people compared to
who they were before college.
Ballard said that students may
be fundamentally the same people
but with different knowledge bases,
attitudes, goals and aspirations.
Ballard said that being a part of a
public university that adds value to
the lives and the quality of life of
people is a great calling.

SARAH BELL EDITOR IN CHIEF
What's wrong with America
DUSTIN PITTMAN
OPINION COLUMNIST
By no means is this column
meant to be all inclusive, because
there's much more wrong with
America than I have the time or the
energy to discuss, but this is at least
the issues most pressing in my mind.
American citizens no longer
respect our military. Every year, I
work with the American Legion,
which for those of you who don't
know is an organization for any
member of the military who served
in any period defined as war. "For
God and Country" their motto
says, yet their country doesn't
stand for them. We must work
to protect our veterans and we as
citizens must respect them.
Whether you agree with the war,
whether you don't like fighting
and blood and killing, it mat-
ters not, those soldiers fought for
you. They did the things that you
should never have to do and saw
the things you should never have
to see. Thank them. Until we get
back to the basics of respecting
our military and those who fight
for us, our country will continue
to falter.
American citizens no longer
respect our flag. For five consecu-
tive years, the House of Represen-
tatives has passed, with a two-
thirds majority vote, a call for an
amendment to the Constitution
of the United States of America
preventing flag desecration and the
Senate has yet to pass it. Americans
are allowed to burn the flag of
the United States in protest, as an
extension of free speech. I go back
to respect for our military. Many
of my friends who are members
of the American Legion served in
Korea, Vietnam and World War II,
and when they tell old war stories,
one remains the same. They tell
me how they yearned to see the
American flag flying while they
were overseas, but they couldn't.
Protect our flag.
The American judiciary no
longer respects its citizens. Time
after time, the Supreme Court
has ruled in a manner which is
contrary to one of the most basic-
principles of our country: majority
rule. Now while we must always
protect the minority and ensure
that they have the right to life,
liberty and the pursuit of happi-
ness within our country, we cannot
let the minority decide how our
country's laws should be shaped.
Every day we face threats from a
minority, but most of those come
in our government's references to
God. All it takes is one person to
make a complaint and one lawyer
to pick up the case and God could
be stripped from everything that is
in our government. Now while I'm
not the most religious of people,
I recognize that the majority of
America is and I respect that. Our
way of life has hung in the balance
with nine lawyers having the abil-
ity to do whatever they want.
Citizens of other nations no
longer respect the laws of our
nation. An estimated 12 million
immigrants are in this country
illegally and yet we as citizens don't
seem to care. Where are our rallies
against breaking the law? I'm glad
that America is so great a country
that people are willing to risk
their life to sneak in and live here.
I'm glad I was born an American
and I can understand why people
want to come here, but you have
to follow the laws of our country.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics says
that 7.1 million Americans are
without jobs, while the Bureau of
the Census says that an estimated
12 million people are in the coun-
try illegally. If those 12 million
immigrants came to this, country
to work and make money to better
the lives of their families, why
can't the 7.1 million unemployed
find jobs? America is the land of
opportunity, but it's not everybody

land, it's our land. We, as American
citizens, should be outraged by the
12 million illegal immigrants in
this country breaking our law and
yet living off our tax dollars. It's
time we fixed it. This isn't hate, this
is protection. In no way am I saying
these 12 million people can't come
to America, but I'm saying they
need to get in line. If we allow a
"path to citizenship" for 12 million
people here illegally, we're reward-
ing their actions. We're saying "you
broke the law, but its okay It's not
okay. While it would be very costly
and extremely difficult to deport
12 million people that is the only
action the government can take
that is right.
American citizens have forgot-
ten about Sept. 11, 2001. While
we're screaming about our rights
and what we want and what we
need, we forget about the 2,986
people who died that day. We
forget that this attack was an act
of war. We forget that this is a
new kind of war, one where you
can't identify the enemy by a dif-
ferent colored uniform. Until we
as a country unite again under a
common purpose, we are inviting
terror back into our lives. I'm a
Republican, you may be a Demo-
crat or Libertarian or an apathetic,
but we are all Americans.
In closing, I leave you with
the words of a man who I consider
the greatest American to ever live.
Ronald Reagan said, "Freedom is
never more than one generation
away from extinction. We didn't
pass it to our children in the
bloodstream. It must be fought
for, protected, and handed on for
them to do the same, or one day we
will spend our sunset years telling
our children and our children's
children what it was once like in
the United States where men were
free I don't plan on telling my
children's children what it was like
to be free, I plan on letting them
experience it for themselves.

You cannot talk on your cell phone
and do the elliptical machine, it
doesn't work that way.
I finally took my roommate's
advice and asked her out and it
was worth it.
I just wanted to say that both of
my parents are immigrants from
Mexico and they went through
the system legally. I don't under-
stand why the immigrants of today
cannot do the same. And I don't
want to have the whole U.S. look-
ing like Huntington Park, CA. If I
was a guest at your house, would
you let me trash it?
To the people responsible for the
car parked beside the Jenkins build-
ing and who displayed it as an "art
project what were you thinking?
1 totally agree with letting kids
come out and participate with a
project. However, considering that
Chancellors Way is used frequently
by ECU'S visitors and guests, I find
it highly inappropriate and just
fiat out tacky that a piece of junk
car has been parked beside the art
building to add to the rest of the
clutter in the yard that besmirches
ECU's campus. Why don't we just
put up a sign that says "Welcome
To Clown Town"?
Let me thank the genius that
put the flyers on the cars in the
freshman parking lot. The hot
sun has glued them to our wind-
shields.
You know, 1 read the rants about
racism, and don't get me wrong, it
is a problem, but everyone seems
to be overlooking another form
of bigotry the thing that white,
Southern men have against North-
erners, or "yankees How does
this sound? Nothing but white
men and dumb blonde women
who wear too much make-up and
too little clothes. Heaven forbid

you should have an enlightening
conversation with a black woman
or a Polish man who has different
experiences than you.
In response to the girl who wanted
to know whether guys just want
to get some, or if they really want
a relationship: Wake up. All guys
want to get some. The only reason
they get into a relationship is to be
assured that they will get some on
a regular basis!
Why is it that all the students at
ECU complain about everything,
but do nothing? Just live your life
so that it makes you happy and quit
worrying about everyone else.
What is the point of the first day
of class if all youdo is get the syl-
labus and leave?
Now that the weather is warm I'm
sad the Dairy Queen closed.
12:30 a.m. on the night before the
first day of summer school, I have
never heard Greenville so quiet.
Does anyone else notice that once
move out is.over, there are hardly
any cars on the road during the
day? It is so easy to cross 10th
Street when there are no cars full of
students crowding the streets.
Why are the ECU cops standing
in front of the Chancellor's house
at night telling everybody to be
quiet? This is a waste of resources.
I wish my roommate would move
out and break our lease so I could
move to a better place.
Why am I being asked if I could
rearrange my school schedule
because where I work wants me
to work lunches? Isn't school
supposed to come first, I mean I am
going to school so I don't have to
be a hostess for the rest of my life.

Secrets to surviving summer school
Achieving success in a very
short period of time
SARAH CAMPBELL
SENIOR WRITER
Just a few short weeks ago
students were scrambling to get
projects and papers done while
trying to cram in last minutes study
sessions before final exams. Now
that summer school has started for
the students of ECU, the hustle and
bustle of everyday life has returned,
bringing with it a large workload
and added stress.
In high school summer meant
a long vacation of sleeping in
and soaking up rays by the pool,
but for college students summer
often equates to working more and
sleeping less.
Summer school offers students
several advantages. The most nota-
ble advantage is the shorter amount
of class time as well as the lure of
getting ahead of the game. How-
ever, a huge disadvantage lies in
the fact that the work load is often
doubled due to time constraints.
My first tip for being a suc-
cessful student this summer is to
buy your books. I know they are
expensive and that you don't think
that you'll use them, but if your pro-
fessor listed them as required then
they probably know that they are
an important aspect of the class.
If you decide not to buy your
books you may be missing out on
valuable study tools. Some books
offer tools such as the questions
at the end of the chapter and CDs
loaded with practice quizzes and
virtual flashcards.
Next, get yourself organized.
Buy a planner to carry with you
to class to write down impor-
tant reminders such as homework
assignments and due dates, which
will ensure that all of your assign-
ments get done on time. You can
also buy a large desk calendar
to mark important dates such as
deadlines for papers and projects
in addition to exam dates.
Another great way to get orga-
nized is buying things such as a
three ring binder, composition
books and dividers. These simple
items can make studying so much
easier by allowing you to easily find
important information.
Also, remember to date all of
your notes, quizzes and exams so
that when you begin to study for
finals you have all of the informa-
tion you need in chronological
order rather than having to orga-
nize is by memory.
If you get past the first assign-
ment and realize that you may not
being doing that great and think
that you have put in 100 percent
of your available effort, try asking
the professor for suggestions. Often
professors are not out to get stu-
dents or make the class difficult
and you just need to know what
they expect.
They were in your shoes once,
so try asking questions early rather
than on the day before the exam
when it is honestly too late.
Summer school is one of the
only times when you will find the
campus free of the floods of stu-
dents everywhere. Take advantage
of this population change. The
libraries and computer labs will be
more accessible, so use this upper
hand to benefit your studies.
During your tryst with summer
school stay organized, stay focused
and have some fun with all of your
new knowledge.
Summer school will only take
up a small part of your summer,
and then hopefully (unless you are
taking both sessions) you'll be free
to enjoy the rest of your summer
any way that you wish.

Focusing for the five short weeks of each summer session is vital.

Spring's mildness is slowly dis-
sipating and with it ensues all the
debauchery associated with Green-
ville's blistering sun. After getting
burned and forced to turn into one
of Schumacher's lost boys, a good
option is staying at the homestead
and checking out the local cinema.
But with the skyrocketing theater
prices, it might be a good idea to
sort the worthy from the mundane.
Here's a month-by-month guide
to help budget this summer's box
office scandal.
Given the rest of America's
obsession with one of the best sell-
ing novels in history, Ron Howard's
adaptation of The Da Vinci Code
looks to make a huge splash on
I the silver screen this summer. The
movie stars Tom Hanks as inquisi-
tive Harvard symbologist Robert
Q Langdon, who uncovers a secret
society's ancient code after helping
police decipher a murder scene. By
the looks of the film's monstrous
budget, it is likely to appease more
than just the mind. Let's just hope
the critics take Howard's vision as
more Cinderella Man than How the
Grinch Stole Christmas. This contro-
versial film opens on May 19.
Brotherhood of Evil Mutants
beware, the final episode of the X-
Men trilogy hits theaters on May
26. The Last Stand will exhibit a
"Rush Hour" of directing talents
and faults from new director Bret
Radner. Not sure how this will
effect the film, but seeing Kelsey
Grammer cast as the Beast, or with
a job in general, will prove an inter-
esting endeavor.
The Omen is set for a carefully
planned release on June 6, or 666,
get it? This remake of the 1970's
classic about the Devil's son casts
newcomer Seamus Davey-Fitzpat-
rick as Damien. The little devil's
mother is played by Julia Styles
(Save the Last Dance), so audiences
might find themselves in the
unusual encounter of rooting for
the antichrist.
Forming like Voltron to concen-
trate their comedic abilities, Mike
White (School of Rock) and director
Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite)
are set to release Nacho Libre to
audiences on June 18. The story
follows Nacho, Jack Black, on a mis-
sion to save a Mexican orphanage
from bankruptcy by becoming a
masked Avrestler. There's no tell-
ing what kind of off-kilter antics
Black will bring to the table, but
the words wrestler and orphanage
provide enough imagery for the
month-long wait.
Former "X-Men" director Bryan
Singer shot down the Marvel series
for a film from the DC side of the
comic spectrum. Superman is
back in the not-so-cleverly titled
Superman Returns. Unknown actor
Brandon Routh takes the wheel
from Christopher Reeve as the
'Man of Steel But the real genius
spawns from casting Kevin Spacey
as madman Lex Luther, anyone

Usual Suspects? Be on the lookout for

In shape for summer
It's not too late to shape up for summer and free weights can help.
Don't panic, you still have
a little bit of time
MARK ROMANO
STAFF WRITER
Summer is here and that means
that you can no longer hide that
slowly growing beer belly under
your winter coat, but don't freak
out, there's still plenty of time to
get in shape before you have to trot
around in your swimsuit.
Getting in shape ust takes
common sense, but while it may
be easy to say you're going to go to
the gym three days a week, it's a lot
harder to actually do it, especially if
you're not used to working out on
a regular basis.
Shapefit.com has several simple
recommendations that anyone
can follow to get into shape in
about one month.
The first and most important
thing to do is to make a plan the
fits you best. If you're trying to lose
weight, a diet change is needed.
If you're focusing on muscle tone
and development, making a weekly
gym schedule will help you stay on
track and keep your goal in reach.
Exercise is more than just lifting
weights or running. To maximize
your workout, you need to eat prop-
erly before and after. A pre-workout
meal should have a lot of carbohy-
drates and proteins to give your
muscles the long term fuel they
need for the exercises and should
be eaten 30 minutes beforehand.
As soon as your workout is com-
pleted, a meal consisting of simple
sugars will help your muscles
recover quickly. In addition, more
protein should be consumed in
order to build new muscles. The key
is to give your body what it needs,
when it needs it.
When woiking out, especially
with weight training, be sure to
switch up the exercises. Doing curls
every day won't give you the results
you want; stimulating different
muscles will tone your body and
relive strain on overworked muscles.
Keeping a journal that records
how many reps, sets and how much
weight you've done will keep you
right on track and will also keep
you from repeating the same exer-
cises. It will also indicate which
exercises are the most efficient for
your needs so you don't end up
wasting time on exercises that don't
show results.
Your body is like a machine,
and without the proper fuels and
raw materials it won't produce the
results you desire. Meals high in
lean protein, such as poultry and
fish are the best. Also, high protein
foods such as beans and nuts are
good for building new muscle and
keeping your energy up during
workout sessions.
Not only does exercising and
dieting right make you look great,
it also increases endorphins in your
brain that induce pleasure, so get-
ting that great body is rewarding
and enjoyable.
Don't push yourself too hard
in the beginning or you'll end up
sore and never wanting to work out
again, until you see that beer belly
returning in the mirror.

MOVIGS from page 5
this blockbuster on June 30.
July looks like a month of
heavy hitters. Pirates of the Carib-
bean returns with Dead Man's Chest
on July 7. Captain Jack Sparrow
(Johnny Depp) finds himself in
another unfortunate position,
owing a blood debt to legendary
seaman Davy Jones (Bill Nighy). He
casually drags Will Turner (Orlando
Bloom) and Elizabeth Swann (Keria
Knightly) into the debacle, ruining
their marriage plans.
Depp's drunken sailor routine,
rumored to be derived from Keith
Richards, will be on full display,
but the Rolling Stone sadly dropped
out of his role as Sparrow's father
in the film.
July 7 also boasts Richard
Linklater's (Dazed and Confused,
Slacker) sci-fi fantasy A Scanner
Darkly. Linklater brings back his
mushroom-tinted scheme of half-
reaf, half-animation characters first
presented in 2001's philosophical
Waking Life. The film is adapted
from schizophrenic author, Phil-
lip K. Dick's, classic novel about
governmental abuse and excessive
drug use. It's sure to be interest-
ing with Keanu Reeves thrust into
the leading role.
Break out the pastel colors and a
pair of slip on sneakers for the end
of July, because Michael Mann is
back with the big screen adaptation
of his 80s staple Miami Vice. Not
sure if Mann can take it to the big
screen? Check out the shoot-em-
up nature of Heat or better yet, the
movie-like nature "Miami Vice's"
pilot episode. This flick won't be
a question of Mann's directorial
talent, but one asking if Hollywood
big timers Jamie Foxx and Collin
Farrell can cut it as Crockett and
Tubbs. Plus, the movie is reset
for the minimalist '00s, when
the true "Vice" era triumphed in
nothing but excess.
August grinds out the endless
summer with the comedic likes of
Clerks 2 and the Broken Lizard's
Be'erfest. Clerks 2 will probably
exhibit some redeeming qualities,
but after the big budget of Jay and
Silent Bob Strike Back, it seems like
director Kevin Smith is laughing
all the way to the bank. There is
nothing wrong with cashing out,
but contemplating a sequel more
than ten years in the original's
wake seems redundant.
Beerfest looks like a winner for
late summer. The story follows two
American brothers who uncover a
secret beer drinking competition
during Germany's Oktoberfest.
After being slandered and beaten
in the centuries-old competition,
the brothers go back to the States
to recruit a team with the talent to
compete in next year's tournament.
Conjured from the minds behind
Super Troopers, this film looks like
a remedy to awaken school spirit
for the fall semester.

Wimpie's in Winterville
does seafood right
JOSEPH MINNICH
STAFF WRITER
I am addicted to fast food like
every other student. Greenville
holds a plethora of cheap,
unhealthy, but delicious, chain
restaurants. Among them are
my guilty favorites: Cici's, Taco
Bell, Krispy Kreme and Andy's, to
name a few.
Wimpie's Steam Bar & Cajun
Cafe in Winterville is one establish-
ment that does things differently.
Owner Scott Joyner emphasizes
slowing down the pace of the aver-
age person. He makes it clear that
part of the "Wimpie's experience"
is enjoying the atmosphere and the
company of your party as much as
the food. In fact, Scott's guarantee
is, "If you're not served in 15 min-
utes, then you will be served within
25 minutes. If you can't shake
your anxiety, we will gladly give
you directions to the nearest fast
food establishment
S As the name implies, Wimpie's
is a seafood restaurant with a Cajun
; twist. They have gumbo, jambalaya
01 and shrimp Creole dishes among
other Cajun specialties. The menu

is not limited to New Orleans style
food with other entrees including
Maryland crab cakes and appetizers
such as calamari rings. Wimpie's
also makes a few traditional chicken
and steak dishes as well.
The quality of the food at this
restaurant is unquestionable. Every-
one in my party of eight devoured
their dish with gusto. Chef Rich-
ard Everingham did a great job
with everything, including the
Shrimp Po Boy, steaks, crawfish and
specialty salads.
I don't know where to start with
my Steak and Shrimp Salad, a behe-
moth of baby greens, onions, bleu
cheese, broiled shrimp and a sliced
ribeye grilled to perfection on top
of it all. Although I thought the
shrimp would be the focus of the
salad, but it was the ribeye that won
my heart. The meat was so tender.it
seemed to melt in my mouth before
I could even chew it. The whole
meal was brought together by the
house vinaigrette, which really
pulled out the taste of the onions
and the shrimp to compliment that
delectable steak.
The only negative comment
on the meal all night was that the
dinner rolls were not very hot. The
rolls were baked with Old Bay sea-
soning, a taste that I found atten-
tion-grabbing but not particularly
pleasing. All nitpicking aside, if you
love hearty, filling meals you will
love Wimpie's.
So what makes Wimpie's spe-
cial? It's the effort they take to slow
you down. It's the genuine, casual
smiles and dress of the manage-
ment and staff. It's the intangible
ability of the establishment to bring
out the tranquility that comes with
pure relaxation.
Joyner and his wife, Kim are
also ECU friendly. They make it
their mission to help dedicated
and diligent students earn a
living. Joyner also says that work-
ing for a small business like his
gives Hospitality Management
majors tremendous experience
for the future. Scott and Kim
Joyner are outstanding examples of
Southern hospitality.
While Joyner and I were talking
over dinner (he hangs out with all
of his guests), he reiterated that he
loves student business, but he does
not condone drunk and disorderly
behavior. The Wimpie's menu
clearly states "Wimpie's reserves the
right to refuse service to anyone,
especially if we think you're acting
like a moron Joyner did say that
type of behavior is rarely seen.
I recommend Wimpie's Steam
Bar & Cajun Cafe as a cure for those
"Greenville Blues" every student is
bound to get after a few semesters
of classes. The restaurant, which
resides in the historic Ange Build-
ing in Winterville, is great for par-
ties, first dates and a good place to
take your parents. It offers the best
seafood and atmosphere that Pitt
County has to offer. Just be ready
to afford the prices, which are not
terrible but not cheap at the same
time. Also, be ready to have fun
and enjoy yourself. In honor of
the calamari rings I devoured as
an appetizer, I give Wimpie's Steam
Bar & Cajun Cafe eight squids
out of 10.

Former ECU Athlete and NFL
player joins NASCAR pit crew
Senior Brody Taylor pitched his fourth complete game of the season to
down UAM 11-6 on Friday night. Ryan Tousley, Dale Mollenhauer and
Jake Smith had three hits apiece. Taylor improved his season record
to 7-2. ECU posted 30 wins for the ninth consecutive season.
McDaniel, second from left, is now a tire carrier and assists the No. 49 Advil Ford Fusion in Darlington, S.C.
Emmanuel McDaniel joins
Busch Series team
ERIC GILMORE
SPORTS EDITOR
Emmanuel McDaniel now wears
a different helmet. No, he hasn't
signed with his sixth NFL team.
Instead, McDaniel now dons the
helmet requiied of pit crew mem-
bers in the NASCAR Busch Series.
E-Mac, as he was affection-
ately known during his ECU days,
recently joined the No. 49 Advil
Xtreme pit crew as a tire carrier and
mechanic. McDanielsits behind
the wall for the Ford Fusion driven
in 2006 by Jorge Goeters, Steve
Grissom, Shane Hall and Derrike
Cope. For a former NFL cornerback,
moving into NASCAR was a natural
progression.
"I knew I couldn't play foot-
ball forever said McDaniel, who
finished his NFL career with eight
interceptions.
McDaniel played for the Caro-
lina Panthers, Indianapolis Colts,
Miami Dolphins, N.Y. Giants and
finished two seasons with the Ari-
zona Cardinals. After his retirement
in 2004, McDaniel spent two years
recovering from brutal collisions
with oncoming wide receivers.
But as time passed, McDaniel's
competitive juices continued to
flow. Thus, NASCAR provided the
perfect stage.
"I just love to compete McDan-
iel said. "It's just another opportunity
for me to compete. We're competing
with other teams to see who can get
in and out of the pits the fastest.
After making a contact with
a former trainer of the Carolina
Panthers, McDaniel enrolled in
the Drive for Diversity program, a
NASCAR initiative. Because NASCAR
is making a concerted effort to
involve minority races and women
in the sport, McDaniel's $2,300 pit
crew school tuition was paid in full.
"Success is creating opportu-
nities said Bryan Kryder, program
director for the Drive for Diversity
program. "A lot of the teams now
are looking for strong, athletic and
agile types. We bring them in and
do the specific training
From there, the former 4th-
round NFL selection used his
athletic background to parlay his
current job with Jay Robinson
Racing. McDaniel's combination of
speed and strength is a natural fit
for being a tire carrier.
"It's more technique than
strength McDaniel said. "You
have to have a lot of technique
playing football and in NASCAR.
In NASCAR, if you don't have any
technique, then just strength is not
going to allow you to put a tire on.
It's all about angles and flexibility
As he experienced both as an
ECU freshman and NFL rookie,
McDaniel fully expects to have to
pay his dues. McDaniel recently
spent some time practicing with
Kevin LePage's Nextel Cup team
and has aspirations of latching on
with a Nextel Cup team.
But for now, he remains loyal
the struggling No. 49 team.

Adam Witter hit two home runs on Senior Day to down UAB 12-2 in

Strong finish for ECU men and women's track team
Frasure, Cotto, Hewett
advance to NCAA
Regionals
(SID) Junior Eric Frasure
closed out the 2006 Conference
USA Track & Field Championships
Saturday in the same manner he
opened competition two days ago,
setting a school record and earning
NCAA qualification while leading
ECU to a fourth-place overall finish
at Kidd Field late Saturday night.
The Pirates completed the
three-day event with 75 points,
29.50 behind third-place finisher
Rice. Host UTEP captured the
C-USA crown in its first year of
membership with 222 points. ECU
finished ahead of Memphis (73),
Tulsa (57), Southern Miss (54)
and Tulane (3).
Frasure, who picked up his
second-straight league hammer
throw title during the first day of
competition Thursday, shattered
his own record of 51.81 meters in
the discus event with a toss of 55.59
to tally a third-place standing.
Senior Hector Cotto turned
in ECU'S top finish of the day,
standing second in the 110-meter
hurdles with a NCAA qualifying
and season-best time of 14.00.
Kris Bell also placed in the event
(sixth) with a personal-record
clip of 14.95.
Freshman Jerek Hewett topped
NCAA minimums in the 100
meters, completing the sprint in
10.43 to finish seventh while David
Rucker earned personal-best time of
10.55 to finish eighth.
In the 200 meters, ECU athletes
logged sixth, seventh and eighth-
place as Kevin Thompson, Hewett
and Brandon Small posted times of
21.21,21.63 and 21.92, respectively.
Senior Bryson Bowling's time of
47.82 in the 400 earned a fifth-
place standing and marked a new
personal record for the senior.
Sophomore Matt Dennish paced
the Pirates' distance runners with
a sixth-place finish in the 1,500-
meter run (3:56.10). Junior Derrick
Carr helped back Frasure in the field
events with a career-best distance of
13.67 in the triple jump (ninth).
ECU'S 4x100 relay squad, con-
sisting of Hewett, Rucker, Thomp-
son and DeAndre Hyman, picked
up six points with a third-place
finish at 40.15, which also estab-
lished a season-best and earned
a ticket to regional post-season
