Potential stalkers are
using these sites
KIMBERLY BELLAMY
STAFF WRITER
Stalking is an issue that may
become a big problem with the
increase of students registering for
Web sites, such as MySpace and
Facebook, everyday.
According to Peter Romary,
director of student legal services,
North Carolina law defines stalk-
ing by three main factors.
The first factor is intentionally
following, being in the presence of
or harassing another individual by
phone calls, fax, e-mail or gifts on
more than one occasion.
The second important factor
is making that person fear for
their life or for a family member's
or close associate's life by making
them fear death, bodily injury or
more harassment.
Causing another individual
severe emotional distress is the
third factor that defines stalking
by N.C law.
About 13 percent of female col-
lege students have been victims of
stalking and about 42.5 percent of
the reported cases were committed
by boyfriends or ,eJ$-boyfriends,
according to Romary.
The remainder of the per-
centages Wjggeople that
you would lit! IIRI'IJ! ll) rnet't on
Web sites such as Facebook or
MySpace.
Classmates attempt about
SJ4.5 percent of stalking instances
and 10.3 percent are by acquain-
tances.
The relationships formed on
these types of Web sites could
end up deadly if you don't limit
the amount of information you
give others.
According to Romary, Taylor
Belli, a student at Virginia Com-
monwealth University, was mur-
dered her freshman year by some-
one she met on MySpace.
When Robbie Johnson, ECU
elementary education major, was
asked whether or not he felt stalk-
ing was a big problem at ECU, he
responded yes.
Johnson said that his reason
for saying yes was because of the
use of Web sites like Facebook and
MySpace.
Johnson also said that he feels
that the risk of stalking is greater
for females than males, and that
one of his female friends was
stalked by someone that she met
on MySpace.
Even after admitting that he
knew someone wljo was stalked
by the information that was listed
on one of these Web sites, Johnson
said that he has a user account for
both sites.

ECU professor
reaches out to high
school students
Stiller gives a tour to D.H. Conley students and parents recently at ECU.
John Stiller works with
high school students in
Greenville
ADELINE TRENTO
STAFF WRITKR
After meeting while walking
their dogs, John Stiller, a biology
professor at ECU, and Kathy Powell, a
high school science teacher, decided to
work togetl ler to bring college biology
to high school students in Greenville.
The program, which began
in 2004, came out of a grant
that Stiller received from the
National Science Foundation.
Stiller received a career investiga-
tor award, from which he was given
live years of support to develop an
integrated teaching and research pro-
gram. From this grant, Stiller devel-
oped an undergraduate course that
allowed his students to have a more
hands on, research based approach to
learning molecular biology.
Unlike most college science classes,
this course did not just teach students
how to use techniques and tools.
Instead it taught them to plan a proj-
ect, develop a real research question
and come up with an answer at the end.
"The biggest problem biology is
facing today is that techniques are
getting to be so driven by technology"
said Stiller. "So many people come
into class really excited about the
technology, but not thinking alxjut
how to apply it to the world around
them. We tend to reinforce that in our
teaching with canned labs and work-
books that produce predetermined
results. What is not lieing conveyed is
that science is a process of discovery
After seeing how successful the
hands on approach was with under-
graduates, Stiller decided to use this
technique at the high school level.
He teamed up with Karen Powell
to use this method on her advanced
placement students at D.H. oConley
High School in Greenville.
The program begun during the
spring semester, after the students
had been introduced to DNA and
molecular biology. This way they
had a basic understanding of the way
molecular biology works, the key
terms and the structure of DNA.
Using equipment brought in from
die labs at ECU, diestudentsdid genetic
typing on bacteria growing in their
every day environment 'Hie students
grew bacteria, determined die DNA of
die bacteria ami then entered the DNA
of their bacteria into die computer to be
compared with die national database.
"Basically the students went from
square one of isolating an organism,
to the method of getting a gene, ana-
lyzing the gene, getting a sequence,
analyzing the sequence and deter-
mining what they could infer from
their findings Stiller said.
By starting at square one, the
students are involved in all areas
of the experiment and are therefore
The iPod is now a mainstay on almost every college campus due to the ease with which information is transferred.
Podcasts integrate into college
life and blogs in a major way

(MCT) Since their introduc-
tion in '2001, iPods have become so
ubiquitous that it's rare to go a day
without spotting someone sport-
ing the trademark white earphones
in the gym, on a city bus or walk-
ing down the sidewalk.
Podcasts made for the digi-
tal media players have become
increasingly popular and diverse
also, even becoming commonplace
on college campuses across the
country as a way for professors
to broadcast lessons outside of a
classroom. But now students, who
are usually on the audience end of
a podcast, are turning the tables
and using the medium as a way to
have their voices heard.
Dennis R. Miller, director of
public relations at Pennsylvania's
Mansfield University, decided
last year that the best way to give
prospective students and incoming
freshmen an uncensored look at
college life was to create a pod-
cast for them using the voices of
real students in a show he called
"Freshmen Secrets Revealed"
(http:podcast.mansfield.edu).
"I just got the sense that this
i 1
new medium was just taking off
like crazy after the iPod was the
number one Christmas gift last
year Miller said. "The beauty of it
is that it captures students in their
own words, and you can listen to
it without being limited by time or
any other type of constraint
Eden Hartwell, a sophomore at
Mansfield, was one of the students
who spoke about her early college
experiences on Miller's podcast. She
grew to enjoy the production aspects
of creating the show and moved on
to helping edit and mix the podcast.
"The production became sort
of a hobby, and I've gotten good
feedback about the project Hart-
well said. "I think it's a success and
a good way to be heard. I'd like to
continue doing it
"A lot of existing studio applica-
tions were modeled after programs
made for professional musicians
said Michael Levy, co-founder of
Equicast Media, the company that
developed WildVoice. "This is
designed to be easier to use than
those, for a more casual user who
wants to have some fun
Many amateur podcasts take
the form of audio blogs, where
students can air their thoughts on
current events, art, culture or per-
sonal experiences. WildVoice also
allows students to use podcasting
as a form of social networking,
where users can choose to make
their podcasts available to the
general public, or to a specified
group of friends and "fans They
can also create their own profiles
and organize favorite podcasters
and types of content into personal-
ized "channels
Pluggd (pluggd.com) is
another recently launched site
that allows users to browse pod-
casts, share opinions and create
Web sites around their favorites,
although it does not allow mem-
bers to post their own podcasts.
Community sites that combine
social networking and blogs with
the new technology of podcast-
ing provide amateur podcasters
with a new type of hybrid hosting
site, according to WildVoice user
Jimmy Daulton, a sophomore at

GOP House candidates to end long
primary with special election
(AP) While most General
Assembly candidates are starting
to look toward the November elec-
tions, Stephen LaRoque and Willie
Ray Starling are still wrapped up
in a seven month primary battle
that should end with a special elec-
tion Tuesday.
The State Board of Elections
last month ordered a new elec-
tion in their 10th House District
after some voting irregularities
and some possible problems with
at least one new voting machine
during the May 2 primary election.
Starling, a retired federal
government worker from Wayne
County who lost to LaRoque
in 2004, was also campaigning
Monday, knocking on doors, even
at homes where LaRoque signs
are erected.

more interested in the results and the
reasons why they got those results.
Stiller believes that with this learn-
ing styie the students will realize
that science is not just about learning
techniques. Instead, they will see it
is about learning how to apply these
methods to their everyday life. "As the
students get to see more results, they
get to see the practical output of what
they have been doing in the lab and
the more excited they get Stiller said.
"When they find something
they didn't expect they start to ask
questions. They ask, well why is this
organism in my school? Where did it
come from? How did it get here?' That
is when the real learning and the real
understanding of biology happens
Stiller believes it is beneficial for
the students to learn these things
at the high school level. In order for
students to want to study biology in
college, they have to be stimulated
and interested in high school.
"Krom these experiments students
are left puzzling, thinking and research-
ing questions that they had never
tlKxight to ask in the first place, and that
is what makes good science. That is what
excites people into becoming research-
ers and scientists Stiller said.
This program has had a great
response from the students who have
been involved in it. According to
e-mails that Stiller and Powell have
received, past students have said that
this high school class helped them
immensely in college Most students
from the 2004 class didrrtrealize how
much they had actually learned from
the hands-on experience until they
got to college. These students found
they were more knowledgeable and
more able to understand their science
classes than their classmates.
"Some of my students have gone
on to college and majored in bio-
logical science, one in biotechnol-
ogy Powell said. "I have another
student, now a senior, that is enrolled
in our honors medical program.
She will be conducting research at
the hospital that requires her to do
the techniques that she has already
learned through this partnership
Stiller plans to continue this
program in the future. He hopes
to expand this program to all high
schools in Pitt County and eventually
to all high schools in North Carolina.

Indian men in swaths of South
Dakota, who die around age 58,

Where you live, combined with
race and income, plays a huge role
in the nation's health disparities, dif-
ferences so stark that a report issued
Monday contends it's as if there are
eight separate Americas instead of one.
North Carolina ranked 40th
among the states with an aver-
age life expectancy of 75.8 years.
Hawaii led the nation with an aver-
age life expectancy of 80.
Health disparities are widely
considered an issue of minorities
and the poor being unable to find
or afford good medical care. Mur-
ray's county-by-county compari-
son of life expectancy shows the
problem is far more complex, and
that geography plays a crucial role.

Top Waffle Eater Breaks His Own
Record
(AP) A California man
ate 23 waffles in 10 minutes to
break his own world record at
the 2006 Waffle House World
Waffle-Eating Championships in
Georgia.
Joey Chestnut's gluttonous feat
broke his record of 18.5 waffles
set at last year's competition, the
Waffle House restaurant chain

ifornia, college student is ranked
second in the world by the Inter-
national Federation of Competitive
Eating, behind Takeru "the Tsu-
nami" Kobayashi of Nagano, Japan,
the Los Angeles Times reported.
The Waffle House said Chest-
nut faced a strong challenge from
Sonya Thomas, a iOO pound Vir-
ginia woman who holds 27 world
titles. She ate 21 waffles, while
Chip Simpson rising rookie on
the eating circuit, consumed 18.
Chestnut collected $5,000

Randy Farrell Bailey, serving
an in-home sentence for a drunk

minute delay on his alarm went off,
police said.
At the drive through he

foul language and acting tense,
assistant manager Danielle Weaver
told the St. Paul Pioneer Press.
When she asked him to control
his language, Bailey pulled up to
the window, got out of his car and
kicked the window in, witnesses
told police. He then drove home;
all under four minutes.
He later told police he was
innocent because his ankle brace-
let confined him to 150 feet of
his home. Police later learned
about the four-minute delayrand"
charged Bailey with felony crimi-

said Johnson.
ECU is implementing meth-
ods to remedy the problem and in
addition, legal action can he taken
if you encounter this problem.
The first step you should
take if you fear that you're being
stalked is contact the police
immediately.
A warrant should he issued
against the person you suspect
is stalking you, which will give
them a Class 1A misdemeanor if
it's their first offense, according
to Romary.
Subsequent offenses will lead
to a Class F felony and a Class H
felony if they ignore a restraining
order that is filed against them.
The administration at ECU is
also takinga firm stanceof attempt-
ing to prevent stalking crimes.
"There are now moves to
update and improve protocols
which will be a multi-pronged
approach involving education,
enforcement, effectively identi-
fying resources for students and
making sure that there is effective
communication around campus
said Komary.
Compared to other universi-
ties, ECU has lower instances of
stalking, according to Romary.
"ECU, unlike some universi-
ties, has great resources to deal
with these issues but nothing can
be done if people don't report it
Romary said.
If you are a victim of stalking,
contact the police department.
If you need advice on similar or
other legal issues, you can con-
tact Romary in Student Legal
Services at 328-5183.

Cheating: It's in the numbers
These days, there is no limit to the number of ways one is able to cheat.
(MCT) It's the sort of case
you might expect Encyclopedia
Brown to tackle.
Two kids seem to have cheated
on Professor Harpp's final exam.
Can he prove the culprits did it
before it's too late?
But when McGill Univer-
sity professor David Harpp sus-
pected some of his students were
up to no good, he didn't hire a
boy detective for a shiny new
quarter. He did the job himself.
He devised a statistical
method to determine whether
two students were copying test
answers from each other. He found
that, on a 98 question multiple
choice test, the pair of students
had 97 answers exactly the same,
including '23 wrong answers.
Confronted with the evidence,
the students confessed.
"We had always worried that
cheating was happening, but we
had to find a way to figure out
who was doing it said Chris
McManus, a professor of psychol-
ogy and medical education at
University College London who
hunts cheaters
Caveon used several methods
to look for bad behavior. But the
most common problem it found
was classrooms or schools where
a group of students had identical
or nearly identical answer sheets,
suggesting they may have copied
from one another.
That method of detecting
cheating has a long history and,
according to researchers in the
field, does a good job of identify-
ing the right suspects. And those
researchers say Texas could do a
better job of preventing students
from cheating in the first place.
Having lots of identical correct
answers, of course, doesn't raise
red flags. If the correct answer to
Question 21 is "B you'd expect

Not just for Pirate Rants
A brief history
of ECU student
privacy
BENJAMIN CORMACK
OPINION WRITER
There has been a big uproar as of late
about privacy issues with Web sites like
Facebook and MySpace in regards to how
easily people can learn information about a
person, including information that may not
wish to be known. My only response to this
issue is a heavily emphasized and drawn
out, "DUH
I've always been hesitant to use sites like
MySpace and especially Facebook because
of how open they are to public view. Call
me crazy, but I don't want my life to be on
display for the campus and especially the 3
whole world to view. I think people fail to
understand that with the Internet the more
you wish to express yourself, the less privacy
you have.
Of course Facebook is not the first thing
ECU students have had issues with regard-
ing privacy and information.
About four years ago, OneCards had stu-
dent ID numbers on them. The problem was
that the student ID numbers are usually the
same as a student's social security number.
If you lost your OneCard back then, you had
a lot more to worry about than losing all
your Piratebucks. Thankfully though, ECU
changed this and even offered free replace-
ments for cards with numbers on them.
Most of you probably remember the fiasco
over the Higher One program when it was
first started. People were in an uproar when
they heard about all the personal infor-
mation that was given to the Higher One
financial services company by the school. It
should be known though that most of this
anger was due in part to a feeling of lack of
consent from the students.
However, I still think there are problems
with how ECU utilizes personal information.
A few weeks ago I found a fellow student's
schedule and receipt for payment just lying
on the ground. Their name, ID number and
home address were clearly on it, and a birth-
day, minus the exact year, is easily found
with a search on Piratemail. In the end, I
had more information on this individual
than I probably should have. I've even tried
to return the schedule I found to the owner,
but I have not heard back from them.
That's why 1 always blackout every sig-
nificant piece of personal information that
shows up, and can usually be found, on every
piece of mail that I get from ECU.
Of course, you can't blame ECU for how
they utilize students' personal information.
Several colleges around the country utilize
systems similar to those like Piratemail and
even use the same Higher One program to
organize the sheer number of students that
attend college. I just would like to see the
use of personal information toned down a
bit.
Instead of birthdays being used as part of
student e-mail addresses, I think just using
names and some form of specific school iden-
tification would be better. Even people with
the same name can be further identified and
specified with numbers at the end.
Also, I think student ID numbers should
be different from social security numbers. It
is true that students would have to memorize
a completely new number, but I think that is
a small price to pay for identity security.
Just remember that ultimately you have
final say in how your information is used.
PIRATE RANTS
When preachers cross the line
They have a right to freedom of
speech, but are they effective?
RYAN COBEY
OPINION WRITER
What do you get when you cross three
fire and brimstone preaching ministers with
a Muslim and '20 college students? Contro-
versy at its finest.
The sounds of attempted salvation and
retribution rang across campus last Wednes-
day, grabbing the attention of passerby and
herding them in a half-circle around a group
of preachers outside of Joyner Library. How-
ever, it seemed that these men were doing a
bit more than just reciting the "word of God
I was pondering not even attending one
class just so I could observe how we as stu-
dents interpret this, but thankfully the same
guy was preaching on the exact same topic
when I got out of my class an hour later. And
it wasn't only students; I saw a few of my
teachers listening in as well.
Not being a huge reader of the Bible, I per-
sonally didn't have much to contribute. How-
ever, when one preacher in particular began
to judge a Muslim student simply based on his
belief, I began to consider the completely igno-
rant one-sided views some of these men have.
I heard this one specific preacher tell
a Muslim student that his belief "is false
The man did not even stop for one second to
consider the diverse group of people stand-
ing around him. He had his belief, he had
his "faith" as he liked to call it, and because
of this so-called faith, he judged people as
being completely wrong simply because they
did not believe the exact same thing he did.
To top it all off, he called one particular
student an "animal This student had to
be taken away by authorities for physically
pushing the preacher. And despite it being
a completely idiotic idea to attempt a fight
with a preacher, I don't know if I blame him
very much for doing it.
After sitting through an hour and a half
of this, I had to talk to someone about it. I
immediately rushed home to discuss it with
one of my roommates, who is very devout in
his Christian faith, just to see what he would
say. His response was a short, simple and
pleasantly surprising "those people are what
give Christians a bad name
From what you've already read, I'm sure
you'd find it surprising that I am a Christian
myself, who regularly attends church on Sun-
days. However, that is the truth, at least that's
how I see myself. I believe in god, I believe in
the messiah, but just because I don't believe
every single piece of information in the Holy
Bible, I am on a one-way trip to Hell accord-
ing to the preachers who judged me last week.
So where is the fine line that divides
obsession and belief? Where is the cutoff
point where faith begins to make you disre-
gard every single other option or belief in
the world? How are there even people left
in this diverse world of ours that still have
such a one-track mind? And more impor-
tantly, what do they think they're going to
possibly accomplish by preaching to college
students? We are people who are here for
the sole purpose of learning more about the
world around us, and becoming more open
to new ideas and concepts.
If anything, these preachers at least give
us a topic to argue on. But if I learned any-
thing from an hour and a half of pointless
sermons, it was that there is absolutely no
possible way to argue with a person who is
too closed-minded to see any other side but
his own.
Can someone tell me a good
time to go to the gym? I mean,
without having to fight the
anorexics for the ellipticals.
Why does every 1-A college in
North Carolina pretend to be a
football school?
Why does everyone make smooch
faces in pictures its weird.
You have no idea how annoying
it is to be sitting somewhere
quietly and all of a sudden, you
hear scuffling noises because
someone's too lazy to pick up
their feet. God gave you feet so
use them instead of dragging
them across the campus or
in the basement. And if you
simply can't do that, then
perhaps you weren't meant to
wear sandals, slippers or any
type of shoe that's heavier.
Stop unscrewing the lights in

I heard that when you come

there a professor is allowed up
to 15 minutes to be late before
you leave and a doctor gets 30
minutes. So what do we give
graduate students?
I want those nifty e-mails
from the university saying

campus that week back!

JUST ASK JANE
Need advice? Want answers? Just ask Jane.
Why do professors insist on
using all this new technology,
like Eduspace and the response
pads in the classroom when
they don't even know how to
use it themselves?
Hey thanks, thanks for that
summer.
I think 90 percent of the
student body here wears
rainbows andor smokes.
Where are all the computer
nerds and such on
campus? Geeks are hot.
Tip your servers well!
To the girl on the bus yesterday
that said my boyfriend is too
cute for me, you must be
jealous because you will never
get a guy like him. Remember,
he is with me and not with
you!
The stupid frats on campus
made it so Cars did not show
on Sunday. They always ruin
everything. They all look like
clones anyways. I still have fun
laughing at them and the game
my friends and me play!
Pirate Rants are allowing me to
not study. I love them so much!
Why does Victoria Secret have
a line named Pink when half
the stuff isn't pink in color?
To the person bashing the
PIRATEARRGGGGG cheer,
why? It is FIRST DOWN -
PIRATESARRRRRGGG! It
keeps the team excited and
also involves everyone. If you
don't like it, then don't come
to the game because you are
just bringing negative feelings
and that is not helping.
ARRRRGGGG!
Whose smart idea was it to
change the Gold bus route?
Now there is no way for us poor
souls who live on the Hill to
get there from central campus
when it's raining outside. Nice
of you to think of everyone in
your decision. Thanks a lot!
OK, so the new LAHN building
is great with the Laupus Library
and the high tech equipment.
But, you know what? It's just
too far from east campus. I
miss that sense of community!
Why aren't the Pirate Rants
online? They used to be! Bring
them back, please. I can't
always get my hands on a
paper copy of the TEC.
No, I did not like the PIRATE
ARRGGGGG one bit. Please
bring back PURPLEGOLD.
And folks, please wear purple
or gold to the games. It's a
college football game, not a
fashion show.
Stop eating so much and
complaining your pills made
you gain weight it's your
eating habits. Stop eating
everything fried six times a day
and complaining to me about
it. I'd feel sick too.
I hate what you're doing to me
too, and even though you hate
that you're doing it you're
not doing anything about it,
and I don't hate you for it
but I do realize you're not who I
thought you were. I don't even
know that person any more.
What's wrong with blackboard?
Why are ECU football fans so
stupid? I bleed purple & gold
so it's hard for me to criticize
but, you have to know when to
make noise! Here's a hint, If
our QB is under-center shut
up, when their QB is under-
center get loud. There's a
reason the offense asked us
to shut the hell up during a
couple possessions (by waiving
their arms).
The people working in the
Mendenhall computer lab need
to do their job. I was in there
trying to work on something
for school and all I could hear
was them babbling about what
color they should set for their
background on MySpace and
how they didn't like the mini
feed on Facebook. The girl
also told me not to answer
any phone calls in the lab, yet
she continued to watch video
clippings, with the sound on,
on the internet.
Wake me up when September
ends.
Going in doors and out, going
up stairs and down, use the
right side please! I am sick of
people being so lazy that they
go in the left door because it
is open, and going up the left
side of stairs because they
are idiots.
Bison are not endangered.
They are delicious. Get it right.
If a woman holds a door open
for you, or even just keeps it
open behind her instead of
slamming it in your face, maybe
you should be appreciative and
not chauvinistically refuse
to go through said door. You
don't see me scowling at all
the ladies and gentlemen on
campus who are kind enough
to open doors for me.
I love teachers who lecture for
an hour and run out of material
and yet still keep you there
for another 25 minutes just
wasting time because they can.
Dear Jane,
You know how most students can't get
jobs at ECU? Well, I just got one, but I'm
embarrassed to tell ail of my friends about
it. I'm a new employee of McDonalds, a
job I never wanted, but I have to pay my
oills somehow. I'm in a sorority here and
I'm afraid of what my sisters will think of
my low-class, unglamorous job. Should I
tell them or just try to keep it hidden?
Signed,
Newly employed and newly embarrassed
Dear newly employed,
While I'm not sure how the people
around you will react, I do know one thing,
people always have been and always will
be judgmental. However, your real friends
won't care where you work. They'll realize
that you have responsibilities and that you're
going to take care of them in any way that
you can. You shouldn't feel the need to hide
where you are working either. When you
start trying to lie to the people that you care
about, things get tricky and it always ends
up coming back and haunting you in the end.
So while you don't have to stand on a chair
and announce your new job, be honest with
your friends and enjoy the new cash flow.

Tailgating like a true Pirate
Pirate Fans getting into the spirit before Saturday's victory over Memphis.
The perfect way to get
your "game face on"
LIZ FULTON
SENIOR WRITER
Cheers to the pirates and
their victory over Memphis. It
looked bleak at the end of the
first half, but the boys regrouped
and sent the Tigers home with
their tail between their legs.
With all of the excitement
and joy of the Pirates' victory,
does your home game experi-
ence feel a little empty? It could
be that a crucial part of the day
scored only sub par on the fun
scale causing the rest of the day
to plateau.
I am, of course, talking
about tailgating, something
that should be revered as an
institution here at ECU. Tail-
gating brings together stu-
dents, alumni and fans that
normally would not congregate
together except for their great
love of their team.
The art to tailgating
involves more than just a lounge
chair and a beer. There are
several dynamics needed to
assemble a tailgate that you
and your friends will be talking
about well into your nursing
home years.
As a 14 year veteran to
attending and tailgating at KCU
home games, I have learned that
there are three core elements to
a top-notch tailgate. The first
is location, location, location.
Depending on your rowdiness
level, different areas around
Dowdy-Ficklen attract different
kinds of people. The Krisbee
golf field next to the baseball
stadium and the field at Eppes
Middle School are by far the
places where the most action is.
These are the places where most
students stake their claim and
come bearing beer pong tables,
huge cookers for pigs and all the
classic rock you can stomach.
Now many of you might skip
the second ingredient of tailgat-
ing to make room for the third.
No judgment here, but believe
me when I tell you that there is
nothing like a full belly before
a football game.
The best vittles to tailgate
with vary from tailgater to
tailgater, but you can never go
wrong with Bojangles, Park-
ers or KFC. Some of the more
established tailgaters will bring
their grill, and it is always pos-
sible to challenge them to a beer
pong game thus defeating them
for their hamburgers.
Food and a good spot are
important, but nothing beats
drinking during the day with-
out judgment. Beer is always
in fashion but it's necessary to
gauge the game time with the
proper alcoholic beverage. If the
game is at noon, then mimosas
and Bloody Marys should be
on the menu. For a later game.
Maker's Mark and ginger ale
tastes delicious with the biting
air of an October afternoon.
As for the classic tailgater,
there are several types. There
is the guy (or girl) that gets to
the field four hours before the
game and never leaves his truck
bed. They listen to the game on
the ladio never making it into
the stadium. Another breed is
the tailgate floater who hits as
many different spots as they
can, stealing respectable tail-
gaters' beer and chicken legs.
There is also the family
who has had the same tailgate
spot for 15 years and will prob-
ably have it for 20 more. They
tailgate with the finest food
and beverages and stay for the
entire game. They also enjoy
post tailgating while waiting
for the traffic to clear.
With the upcoming months
bringing Saturdays full of
football, make sure to enjoy the
sacred art of tailgating.
Stay tuned to the Sports
section for more information
about Pirate Football and other
opportunities to cheer your
Fighting Pirates to victory.

Do not write on 'The Wall'
Couples go crazy
about comments
MEREDITH STEWART
SENIOR WRITER
Facebook.com and Myspace.
com are two Web sites that most
college students recognize and use
on a daily basis. You are able to
post comments and leave messages
on other profiles and learn a great
deal about someone else based on
their interests, favorites, photos,
clubs and other personal informa-
tion. You are also able to display
your "status which lets people see
if you are in a relationship or not,
and this is where things go from
fun and entertaining to crazy and
dramatic.
I have actually heard couples
fight over the fact that the other
person displayed an incorrect
status or did not display one at
all If you have found yourself in
this situation you .should really ask
yourself, "Is this argument even
worth my time?" That has got to
be absolutely ridiculous.
Another big issue that couples
find themselves dealing with is
the photos posted on these Web
sites. If they are "tagged others
can click and see who is in the
picture.
"I saw a girl who I thought I
was dating in a picture on Face-
book with many other guys look-
ing like she was having a little
too much fun. I would have never
thought she was that way until I
saw the rest of the pictures that

is a place for enjoyment every
night of the week. For returning

A guide to a quick and
fun weekend escape
JENNY AYERS
STAFF WRITER
Now that the semester is well
under way and classes are lull
throttle, we find ourselves once
again swallowed in the stress of
endless reading, deadlines, tests,
etc. As a result, merely one month
into the semester, we also find
ourselves in need of a vacation.
Fall is just around the corner
and Wilmington may seem
like a strange choice for such a
getaway, but the city has much
more to offer than the beach.
The beach draws in an inter-
esting mix of people from all
backgrounds, which makes the
city rich in character and vari-
ety that can't always be found
elsewhere As for things to do
around town, there's everything
from bargain hunting in the
downtown shops to spooky late
night ghost tours. There's cer-
tainly something for everyone in
Wilmington, which happens to
be a convenient two hours from
ECU, thus making for an easy
weekend escape.
As it is cooling down and tall
is fast approaching. Wilmingto-
nians must find other things to
fill their days with, other than
lounging on the beach. My per-
sonal favorite pastime is shop-
ping, and in Wilmington, there
is lots of it to be done. There's
the Westfield Mall, which is sig-
nificantly bigger than our own
Colonial. Wilmington's mall is
home to more than 150 stores
including Forever 81, Charlotte
Kusse, Journeys and Abercrom-
bie & Fitch, just to name a few.
If the mall is not your thing
and you're more into boutiques
and bargain hunting, then head
to dow mow n Wilmington where
the streets are lined with many
stores that have something for
everyone. There's the Old City
Market with several artisan
shops where you can find hand-
crafted treasures for your room
or, if you're like me, you can at
least stock up on unusual can-
dies such as chocolate covered
sunflower seeds and whistle lol-
lipops (everybody needs to expe-
rience the whistle lollipop).
There are also several bou-
tiques along the river. Island
Passage and Blackbeard's Bryde
are my favorites and they have
a great selection of clothing for
girls and guys alike 1 recom-
mend scoping out the sale racks
at these stores as they do carry
designer labels.
There's also Return Passage
located just down the street
where you can find marked-
down designer clothes Think
Bugged Wearhouse, but for
designer goods.
There are. of course, other
things to do around the city
apart from shopping. During
the day you can take a variety of
tours, walking downtown tours,
dining and sightseeing water
tours and murder mystery boat
tours. We took a walking ghost
tour and saw the city from an
entirely different perspective. A
guide takes you from location to
spooky location telling you the
historical tales of battles and
brawls that went on there.
After all that shopping
and sightseeing, you will have
worked up an appetite and, luck-
ily for you, Wilmington has an
abundance of great restaurants.
Flaming Amy's Burrito Barn
is located on Oleander Drive
and it not only has a fun dining
atmosphere, but they make one
of the tastiest burritos around.

SENIOR WRITER
Billy Godwin said he's better
prepared and has his plan in
place as the ECU baseball coach
prepares for his second season as
skipper of the Diamond Bucs.
"The offseason has given
me a chance to reflect said
Godwin, who was named head
coach following the resignation
of former coach Randy Mazey.
"I was kind of thrust into
the situation in October. I've
had a chance to reflect and get
my thoughts together about
how I want to approach things
and how I want to do things
in a first full season, so that's
certainly exciting for me to have
the opportunity to plan. There's
been more planning on my part
about how I want things done in
our program
Godwin's second season as
the head coach got under way last
week with the commencement of
fall practice. Godwin said he was
impressed with what he saw from
his returning players. "I think
we've got a lot accomplished in
a short period of time Godwin
said of the first week of the 13-
day fall practice schedule. "I've
been really encouraged. We've
seen some good things. The
purpose of the fall is to evaluate
so that we can take the individual
time to work on some things that
we see guys gotta work at
Many Pirates used the
summer to hone their skills play-
ing in various wood-bat summer
leagues throughout the country.
A few achieved all-star success in
their respective leagues.
Mike Flye and Jamie Ray
each were selected to play in the
Coastal Plain League All-Star
game. Flye posted an ERA under
1.00 as the closer for the Wilson
Tobs while Ray's .350 batting
average earned him a spot on
2006 SEBaseball.com summer
all-star team. Godwin said he
sees an improvement from all 12
returning Pirates who played in
the amateur leagues.
"We had some guys go
out and have great summers
Godwin said. "Jamie Ray was
one of the top U players in the
country. Dale Mollenhauer had a
great summer (in Canada). Shane
Matthews threw well in the Cape
Cod League.
"The summer is a great
time for guys to go out and we
identified things and what we
asked them to do, 'These are
some of the things we'd like to
see you do to come back and be a
better baseball player
Godwin said the summer
leagues have kept his players,
includingjunior college transfers
Trent Ashcraft, Cory Kemp and
Mark Letchworth, in shape.
"I've been really impressed
in the conditioning that our
returners have come back in
Godwin said.
The Rocky Mount native
and former head coach at
Louisburg College said he was
equally impressed with the Dia-
mond Buc hopefuls.
"There are some guys who
certainly can play college base-
ball Godwin said. "The key for a
walk-on is are they good enough
to come in right now and contrib-
ute. I was real impressed overall
with our walk-on tryouts
Aside from the JuCo transfers
and possible walk-ons, Godwin
said he has been impressed with
his first recruiting class. First
baseman Kyle Roller from Rich-
mond County has "demonstrated
tremendous power according to
The baseball team hopes to return to the NCAA Tournament.

Tara Shaw determined
to instill winning legacy
' wy
Senior midfielder Tara Shaw is a big reason why the women's soccer team has jumped out to a strong start.
Shaw has scored three goals, including two against Georgia State. She has started all eight games.
Senior matures as
career winds down
TOMMY GRAHAM
STAFF WRITER
When coaches recruit, they
look for size, athleticism and the
determination to never quit. As far
as size goes, on the ECU women's
soccer team they do not get much
bigger than Tara Shaw.
At 5-10, Shaw presents an
intimidating presence in the mid-
field for Rob Donnenwirth'i team.
As a senior she provides a strong
defensive presence, as well as a
scoring threat that gives oppo-
nents more than one thing to worry
about when she's around the ball.
Only one other player on the
team does she truly have to look up
to, that being Mary Puckett (5-11),
but yet in her four years at ECU,
Shaw has not only stood tall in
literal terms for this team, she has
set an example off the field as well.
Shaw came to ECU by way
of Great Valley H.S. in Malvern,
Pa. Located in eastern Pennsyl-
vania, this town of 3,200 located
in Chester County is close to the
Paoli Battlefield site. On her high
school team, Shaw was a leader.
She notched top 10 all time scor-
ing honors in her school's history
as well as being a four year letter
winner and four time first team
all-league selection. In her senior
season, Shaw helped lead her team
9 to the semi-finals of the state high
01 school soccer tournament.
After graduation, Shaw came
to ECU where the student body is
larger than the population of her
hometown. She began her colle-
giate play in the 2003-2004 year,
seeing action in eight games for
the Lady Pirates that year. Shaw
did not get long to adjust to the
college game. After sitting out
the first lew contests, she got her
first game action against ECU's
chief regional rival, the UNCW
Seahawks.
As a sophomore, Shaw played in
16 games lor the Lady Pirates with
her first start being in the home
opener against Georgia southern.
She also recorded her first goal
that season against Memphis and
finished the year ranked third on
the team in shot percentage at .286.
Of the most memorable things
that happened that year, Shaw
said one of the best was "beating
Cincinnati in their own house
Going into her Junior cam-
paign Shaw was ready to make a
name for herself. She was one of
only eight Pirates to have played in
all 21 games, starting 12 of them
at the mid-field position. She tied
for fourth on the team with two
goals, but her shot percentage
dropped to .167. However, she
was one of the Lady Pirates on
the field during their conference
tournament victory over a ranked
SMU team. She said this victory
"was really special" in the fact that
earlier in the year, ECU had lost
to them on Bunting Field.
Now in her senior year, Shaw
so far this season is already tied
for second in points (nine) with
three goals and a shooting per-
centage of .333. She recorded two

ECU's sweep brings
winning streak to
three
ROBERT MATTHEW PARKS
STAFF WRITER
Sloppy is not a term usually
used to describe a three-games-
to-none win, but it is exactly the
way Lady Pirates Head Coach
Chris Rushing described his
team's latest victory.
The Lady Pirates were able to
overcome lowly North Carolina
A&T in three games Tuesday
night 30-19, 30-24, 30-26.
Leading the Lady Pirates
was Mignon Dubenion with 15
kills. Dubenion also contributed
two digs on the night. Senior co-
captain setter Heidi Krug had 38
assists and 10 digs on the night,
giving her a double-double.
The Lady Pirates started slow
out of the gate before getting
things together to win the game.
Early in the game the appearance
of defensive difficulties were evi-
dent, allowing the Aggies to hang
around for the first 20 minutes.
During a timeout, Krug could be
heard shouting the same term her
coach would use at the end of the
night. Sloppy.
Game two went much the same
way with the Aggies refusing to
go down, playing the Lady Pirates
almost point-for-point until the
score was 21-20, at which point
Bushing's team was able to put
away the Aggies, winning the
game 30-24.
The final game was the clos-
est of the night with the Lady
Pirates coming out on top 30-26
to complete the sweep. Of the
Lady Pirates 35 digs, 18 came in
game three.
While happy to get the win,
Rushing and his players expressed
disappointment in their effort
after the game, clearly expect-
ing to handle A&T easier than
they did.
"We did not do basic funda-
mentals very well tonight said
Rushing. "Defensively, we weren't
getting to the right spots to dig
balls. We were dropping to our
knees when we should have been
staying on our feet, and we did not
get the ball to our setter so that we
could run a good offense
Following the game Rushing
took his team behind closed-doors
for nearly 20 minutes.
Upon exiting the locker room
Krug echoed much of what Rush-
ing had said. c
"We were all frustrated Krug
sighed. "In the first two games we -g
had 17 digs. We weren't doing the $
things that we normally do

Billy Godwin's squad fields
ground balls in fall practice.
"The NCAA tournament is a
process Godwin said, "and the
process is that we have to go out
and recruit the kind of players
that can put us in that position.
Our coaching staff is responsible
for getting those guys to play at
the level to be able to get into the
NCAA tournament. These guys
are focused right now on playing
at the level we believe they have
to play at.
"The NCAAs, that's more
of turn-the-page January-type
goal. The fall right now is letting
guys know what our expectations
are, meeting those expectations,
exceeding them and just trying
to be a better baseball player
to help us win games in the
spring
Godwin added that there
is "no question" that getting
back to the NCAA tourna-
ment and ultimately to Omaha
for the College World Series
is one of those expectations.
"We don't want a player to
come in here and that not be his
ultimate goal as a member of
our baseball program Godwin
said. "We talk about Omaha a lot
within our team
Starting another streak of
NCAA appearances will not be
easy as the Pirates will welcome
three teams who played in the
2006 College World Series to
Clark-LeClair Stadium. Rice,
UNC and Cal State Fullerton
will come to Greenville, among
other "heavy hitters" from the
college baseball elite.
"We've got some teams
like Michigan, Pepperdine and
North Carolina State coming
in Godwin said. "I think when
our schedule is released; it's
probably going to be one of
the most challenging schedules
that East Carolina's played. Our
philosophy on that is, if we want
to be the best, we've got to beat
the best

of those goals in the game against
Georgia State earlier this month.
With only one more goal, Shaw
will have tied her career mark of
four goals and could very easily
surpass that mark with 11 games
left in the season.
However, she is not just all
about height and leg power. Shaw
is studying criminal justice here
at ECU and has made the Athletic
Dean's list multiple times, most
recently in the spring of 2006. In
addition, she was named to the
honor roll on multiple occasions as
well as being named to the C-USA
Commissioner's Academic Honor
Roll the past two years. Looking
ahead Shaw would like to be able
to go to grad school, maybe at
ECU and continue her studies.
"I just want to be able to help
people she said when asked why she
chose criminal justice as her major.
"It gives us a chance just to
be ourselves Shaw said. She also
remarked that this will be one of
the things she misses the most
after she leaves the program this
year. Outside of the field is where
the team "really gets to know each
other she said.
Over the course of the past
few years, Shaw has went from
being a "small town girl to the
player on the field opponents do
not want to see. With 11 games
left this season, her favorite niece
and nephew cheering her on and
the Conference tournament to
look forward to, her Senior year
looks to finish with a flurry.
That flurry however is one that
the Lady Pirates will hope to see
finish with a conference champi-
onship and a few new moves on
the dance floor!
