Students able to exchange tickets online
A student utilizes Tixology to purchase tickets. The site was created to allow students to exchange tickets online.
Expulsion: The facts and myths
Know how to prevent
getting expelled from
college
Tixology finds success
through Facebook
ELISA BIZZOTTO
STAFF WRITER
Here at ECU, it is a rare occa-
sion when students who want to
attend a football game simply
cannot because they are without
a ticket. However, at schools such
as Virginia Tech, Texas and Ohio
State, that have top-ranked teams
and extensive student bodies, stu-
dents often find themselves down a
ticket to their school's games simply
because of unfortunate luck in a
ticket lottery.
David Gentzel and Nathan
Jones, both Virginia Tech graduates
and both rather familiar with the
disappointment that accompanies
bad luck when it comes to digging
for tickets, took it upon themselves
to create a medium that would allow
students a better chance at obtain-
ing tickets for the next big game.
Tixology, as they dubbed their
new Web site, was once called
faceTIX. It is an extension of Face-
book and is centered around the
site's successful social networking
system. Genztel and Jones saw the
opportunity to utilize the casual
atmosphere amongst the online
friend circuit and take advantage
of the efficiency with which com-
munication takes place.
The site was designed to make it
easy for students to exchange tick-
ets, thus the way in which it works
is very simple. Students, or recent
alumni, can access the system free
of charge through their Facebook
login. Once at the site, users have
different portals to choose from.
Users can post extra tickets they do
not need, post requests for tickets
they do need or post tickets which
they would like to swap for others.
c The site also offers a listing of the
S upcoming events at students' schools
as well as past postings. There is a
n messaging center, which allows
" users to communicate person-
8 ull which will soon be supported
through the messaging system
within a user's Facebook account to
allow an even greater opportunity
for efficient exchange.
Before creating Tixology,
Gentzel and Jones were well aware
that there were other sites that
offered the same facilitation with the
distribution and exchange of tickets
such as eBay and StubHub. However,
they recognized the connections
between people through Facebook.
They noticed that because almost all
communication within the system
takes place between friends, the
chances of successful exchange
would be greater.
They saw that the relation-
ships between friends on the site
were very casual and users would
be more likely to offer extra tickets
or request them online than they
would be to ask students they see
once a week in English class. In
addition, they believe the site will
minimize ticket scalping in that it
encourages all exchanges to either
be free or for tickets to be sold at
their regular price.
The two launched the site Aug.
22 and saw well over 1,000 ticket
transactions among over 150 schools
in the first two weeks. Tickets for
the Ohio State vs. Texas game were
available, among many others, and
the site seems to have obtained the
kind of following Facebook did
when it first launched.
Gentzel and Jones are geared
toward picking up a following at
schools with big football programs
at the moment, but later on in the
year, they hope to expand to schools
with large basketball programs and
soon.
"Ideally, we'd like to have a
pretty solid base at around 20
schools with hundreds of tickets
posted for each event. In short,
we want to be students' first stop
in their quest for college tickets
said Gentzel, "We've seen positive
results at a number of places, and
we'll keep searching for others in
hopes of helping students get to as
many games as possible

SENIOR STAFF WRITER
There are various different
reasons why students could get
expelled or suspended from the
university that students should be
aware of and avoid.
Grounds for expulsion or
suspension at some universities
is suicide, which ECU doesn't
support.
After a student committed
suicide at MIT her freshman
year, many universities began to
suspend or expel students to avoid
a lawsuit.
In that suicide incident, known
as the Shim case, the university
knew that the student was suicidal
and didn't inform her parents. The
parents sued the university.
Under the Family Educa-
tional Rights and Privacy Act
of 1974, theStiiversity was obli-
gated to withhold that infor-
mation from the parents.
ECU is also obligated to hold
this type of information, but instead
of suspending or expelling the
student, ECU will try to give the
student counseling to prevent the
student from attempting suicide.
According to Olszewska, the

Equipment failure caused 911 lines to go down in as many as 38 counties.
'91T takes night off
No service for many in
need on Monday
ZACK HILL
STAFF WRITER
A fiber optic equipment failure at
a switching station in Rocky Mount
brought down 911 lines across east-
ern North Carolina Monday night
leaving many residents with partial
or no 911 service.
Noel Lee, Pitt County Emer-
gency Management director, said
he had heard estimates of eleven
counties affected, but Lenoir County
Emergency Services director Roger
DajJ said that Embarq phone com-
pany representatives had informed
him of thirty-eight counties that
were affected.
The outage started in Pitt
County at 6:30 p.m. on Monday
night. By 10:30 p.m partial service
had been restored and by 11:30
Embarq employees had service
completely restored.
"Everything is back up and
running at one hundred percent
said Lee.
Adam Scarboro, an E.R. nurse
at Pitt County Memorial Hospital,
said signs were placed in the emer-
gency room telling employees to
redirect calls to the emergency room
to another, seven-digit emergency
number.
"It's usually hectic in there, but
it definitely wasn't as busy said
Scarboro.
Brian Brantley, director of Nash
County Emergency Sevices, said
that for a time, both the 911 service
and the seven-digit service were
out. Incoming emergency calls were
routed to the Rocky Mount city
911 service and then transferred by
radio to the county office.
Service has since been restored
to all areas affected.

City of Greenville, ECU collaborate on new initiative
Mayor Don Parrott
enthusiastic about new
initiative
LEE SCHWARZ
STAFF WRITER
West Greenville, the area
between Evans and Memorial and
from Arlington to the Tar River,
is the object of a new initiative
by the City of Greenville aimed
at providing the residents of this
area with greater resources in
terms of safety and education.
To accomplish this objective,
a partnership has been created
between ECU Chancellor Steve
Ballard and Greenville Mayor
Don Parrott. The city, with the
help of a private foundation, will
purchase the former St. Gabri-
el's Catholic Church on Martin
Luther King Jr. Drive from the
Catholic Church. ECU's Col-
lege of Human Ecology will run
an Intergenerational Center to
serve west Greenville Residents.
Of the partnership and pur-
chase, Parrott said, "We have
worked so hard to provide more
resources for west Greenville.
It's great to see the ongoing ful-
fillment of the two city council
goals: Form effective partnerships
and help revitalize the neighbor-
hood. I hope this will provide the
stabilizing force that St. Gabri-
el's provided for so many years
"We are excited to partner
with the City in this project to
enhance the progress already
under way in west Greenville.
ECU is a strong believer in
partnerships, and this could be
one of our best said Ballard.
In west Greenville, the police
department has worked very hard
to bring down the crime rate.
Many abandoned houses have been
bulldozed and boarded up. Accord-
ing to Greenville Police Officer
Chuck Savage, "Our problem
solving team has been moved from
Tobacco Road to west Greenville
in order to make it better for
the people who live there

$280 million fund to sup-
port Duke nursing, medical
programs
(AP)Medical and nurs-
ing programs at Duke Univer-
sity will receive $280 million
from the Duke University Health
System to help fund education
projects for the next decade,
the school announced Tuesday.
The money, along with interest,
will be used to research health
disparities that contribute to dis-
eases such as HIV and diabetes,
methods of diagnosis and treat-
ment, and biological processes
that could help scientists better
understand how diseases occur.
"Duke is one of the nation's lead-
ers in basic biomedical research
and in developing innovative
ways of treating cancer, heart
disease and many other medi-
cal problems said Dr. Victor J.
Dzau, chancellor for health affairs
at the university and president
and CEO of the health system.
"To continue that tradition of inno-
vation, we need to train physicians,
nurses and scientists who are the
most skilled in their fields, and
we need to support research that
leads to discoveries that transform
science and save lives he said.
"This new funding will help us
to foster an environment at Duke
where researchers can follow their
instincts and take risks. History
has taught us that breakthroughs
are often found off the beaten
path said R. Sanders Williams,
dean of the School of Medicine.
N.C. panel prepares for flu
pandemic, moral treatment
questions
(AP)With a flu pandemic inevi-
table, North Carolina's medical
professionals must prepare now
for what could be wrenching
moral decisions about who will be
treated and who won't if the illness
overwhelms hospital resources,
members of a state task force said.
The Task Force on Ethics and
Pandemic Influenza Planning met
recently to discuss a strong set of
ethical guidelines for the state's
doctors and nurses in the event
of a global outbreak of a new and
more virulent strain of flu virus.
The first is to assure that crucial
functions of society aren't dis-
rupted. That means giving priority
for vaccines and anti-viral medica-
tion to health care workers, police,
firefighters and employees of
critical industries such as utilities.
The panel also has drafted recom-
mendations about the movement of
people during a pandemic, includ-
ing the use of quarantine and
the closing of schools, churches
and other mass gatherings.
"We're up here at 30,000 feet
making these broad, philosophical
statements, but nobody's going to
read a paper like that he said.
"We've got folks with 100 doses
of vaccine and everybody wants
it, and we've got to give them
specific guidelines on who gets it
and why
EXPULSION
continued from Al
university considers the student's
well being, individual health, and
also considers what type of envi-
ronment they are in.
If the student is staying on
campus in the dormitory, the
roommate may also experience
emotional stress by living with
someone who is in this type of
psychological mindset.
When asked if ECU should also
expel students that are suicidal,
Olszewska said, "I don't feel like
suspending or expelling someone
is best solution for the situation
Olszewska also stated that
counseling may not provide much
help because if a person is truly
suicidal, there isn't much someone
else can do to alter their decision.
One of the main ways that a
student could be in danger of get-
ting expelled is for drug charges.
According the disciplinary actions
listed in the student handbook,
drug charges relating to Schedule
I or II drugs are the most serious
charges that will result in expulsion
or suspension from the university.
Schedule I drugs include
heroin, LSD, peyote, mescaline,
psilocybin, or "shrooms" and vari-
ous other drugs.
Schedule II drugs included
morphine, Demerol, codeine, per-
codan, cocaine and other similar
drugs, according to the student
handbook.
According to Margaret Olsze-
wska, associate director of office
of student rights and responsibili-
ties, possession of Schedule I and
II drugs and repeat alcohol drug
offenses are the main grounds for
expulsion or suspension.
Other universities take a sim-
ilar stand on the disciplinary
actions that should be taken about
drugs and alcohol, but the policies
they have for a student attempting
suicide is very different.
If you know anyone that is in
danger of committing suicide or
abusing alcohol or drugs, contact
the center for counseling and stu-
dent development located in the
Wright Building at 328-6661.

Not just for Pirate Rants
Not quite the
dead-end job
Teaching Fellows are an asset to ECU
ELIZABETH LAUTEN
CONTRIBUTING WRITER
I'm pleasantly surprised with the Teach-
ing Fellows on campus and their responses
in defense to this past Thursday's Pirate
Rants against them. I have received a stag-
gering number of Rants from current Teach-
ing Fellows over the past few days and it
is refreshing to see these students truly
believe in what they are doing and to have
both the tact and class to react maturely.
With that said, I must say that I have to
agree with them - by no means is teaching a
dead-end job. Teaching is in fact the profes-
sion that readies all other professions. With-
out the dedication of teachers, where would
any of us be? Not at ECU, that's for sure.
Moreover, there is an extreme need for
teachers in the state of North Carolina,
which is why the Teaching Fellows program
exists to begin with. Without dedication
from students such as the Teaching Fellows,
the state would be in a crisis for educators.
So, instead of bashing their efforts, their
amazing scholarship and the opportunities
that they no doubt worked hard to earn, we
should applaud them for pursuing a job that
requires long hours, extreme patience and
a never-ending love of learning.
Few students put as much effort into
their degree as they do, and ECU should
recognize the promise that they're making
to our youth of tomorrow.
Behavior issues
relevant to ECU
BENJAMIN CORMACK
OPINION WRITER
I've been working on many stories lately
revolving around issues of students, laws and
consequences. I've talked to citizens, city offi-
cials, school officials, police officers and so'
many others that my head is still spinning.
The consensus and overall theme that I saw
was that character should account for academic
status. Meaning that how you behave should
affect whether you're still able to go to school.
Now I'm not going to rehash issues I already
covered in my news article, but what I can tell
you is that these new changes in state laws are
going to be brutal.
I think a lot of people in our age group
believe that if you get in trouble, there is a
chance that you can .get out of it by plead-
ing youthful recklessness. From the looks of
things that's no longer going to cut it anymore.
You can also forget about the variable "three
strikes" people usually assume they have.
The question that comes to my mind is why
is this happening? Are law enforcers like the
District Attorney just tired of having to deal
with so many cases? Or are people just becom-
ing increasingly out of control?
My biggest question, or my biggest concern,
has been about how ECU feels about behavior
affecting a student's status. I gathered that
ECU does in fact impose a behavior-based
policy for academic status. Believe me when I
tell you that if you get in trouble at a football
game, it may be your last. Too many drinking
tickets, and you may find yourself with a lot
more free time.
I'm going to be honest and say that my feel-
ings about this issue do come from a personal
experience. I've lost friends, good, stand-up
guys, because of poor academics, and I've seen
students that party hardy and somehow main-
tain a successful GPA. I can't help but think
that is just not right. For the longest time I
thought it was because academics meant more
to ECU than character, and in a way, I think
that still appears to be the case. However, based
on what I've learned student character issues
are just now becoming more out in the open.
ECU's view on it hasn't really changed.
The biggest problems come when nobody
is willing to make reports. The truth of the
matter is that authorities within ECU aren't
afraid to carry out or enforce punishments; it's
just that they can't do it without facts. Making
anonymous reports, which many officials
say they get, isn't enough to start an inves-
tigation. They need a person who is serious
enough about their claim to make it in person.
I know I'm probably not making much
sense, but that's only because there are some
things I either can't or don't want to talk
about. My only advice to you is that public
safety and tranquility is becoming a big issue,
and you need to know what changes are being
made in the law and what the unchanged laws
are. Finally, if you know something, then you
need to come forward about it. School and
public safety are important issues, and there
are going to be a numerous amount of tough
laws coming in effect to preserve it.

I'm ready to be friends again. What

Tuesday sucked! I got up at 7 a.m
threw a shirt on backwards and
crawled to Java City just to find
out that their espresso machine is
busted. Stumbled to class half blind,
because I forgot my sunglasses, just
to have my teacher not show up!
Gotta love ECU life.
Ex-girlfriends suck! Just break up
and leave me the heck alone!
I only have about three friends here
but they're quality. Those three can

Don't buy a puppy or a kitten and

Why do some people feel the need
to say "It smells in here" when they
enter a bathroom? Of course it
smells. It's a bathroom.
Statistically, there are 61 percent
females and 49 percent males here
at ECU, but why can't I find one
girl that is an actual down to earth
individual?
Girls go to the bathroom in groups
for safety measures; you never
know which stall will be out of toilet
paper and you are left stranded.
Why was there an add for Playboy
wanting ECU girls, and a classified
ad wanting female dancers? ECU'S
turning into the whoremonger
school rather than the party school.
For all of those that want to reform
smokers and state facts that we
already know and threaten a non
smoking campus take a look at
the school bylaws. Fifteen percent
of all of the all ECU buildings
are supposed to be allocated for
smoking facilities. Don't push us
or we'll push back.
What is it with people thinking that
just because you're at ECU, you
didn't get into UNC or Duke? ECU
was my first choice, not my backup!
For your information, I have a screw

Why is it that whenever a girl says
that your shirt is cute, we all go out
and buy a dozen more like it, only
to have her change her mind about
it the next day?
Why can't on-campus housing be paid
monthly? A lot more people would
join the program if there was not an
up front cost of over 1,000 dollars.
Why is it that no one ever stops to
appreciate the fact that the janitors
always keep the bathrooms well
stocked with toilet paper? You
never realize how much you need
it until you're left stranded. So, we
salute you janitorial staff, because
without you this world would be a

Is it wrong to use a complete dork as

The reason that there are no "black"

because of their own personal

Banning birth
control to
prevent abortion
Yes, it sounds like a stupid idea to me too
STACY DAIL
OPINION WRITER
"Contraception is more the root cause of abor-
tion than anything else This brilliant statement
was said by Joseph Scheidler, an anti-abortion
activist who sponsored a conference last week to
help start the movement of outlawing birth control
and other contraceptives.
If you're like me, I'm sure you are thinking
what kind of drugs is this guy on to blame abor-
tion on birth control, something that is 99 percent
effective to make sure a baby isn't even conceived.
This idea makes sense to him, as well as the
other 250 people from all over the nation who
attended the conference. The reasoning behind
this idea is because birth control devalues children,
and produces unhealthy relationships between men
and women because it helps to promote sex and
other "promiscuous" activities.
Just because a person takes birth control
because they do not want to have a baby doesn't
represent an idea that children are under appre-
ciated or unwanted, it just shows that the person
is responsible and understands that they are not
ready for children at this point in their life.
Many women have been contemplating what
they will name their kids ever since they were
littie girls, and these same women are currently on
birth control. This may be a shocker to Joseph and
his groupies, but planning for kids in the future,
while presently protecting yourself from getting
pregnant, isn't devaluing children. It's actually
protecting them against having a mother who isn't
prepared, or financially stable enough for them.
It was also mentioned that birth control
encourages men and women to have sex, which
is probably true to a certain extent. Believe it or
not, humans don't have sex just for the purpose
of reproduction, and outlawing birth control isn't
going to stop them from doing the deed.
We live in a culture where birth control is
commonly used. Ninety-eight percent of women
ages 15 to 44 have reported the use of at least one
method of contraception, and around 40 million
of those have chosen the option of birth control.
So, let's just say that this bright idea does
somehow happen, and they ban birth control and
other contraceptives. There would be 40 million
women out there who could be having unsafe sex,
which could possibly produce 40 million children.
Some of those women don't want or aren't able to
handle the responsibility that a child brings, and
may go to the extent of having an abortion.
It seems to me that the way to prevent abortion
would be to prevent unwanted pregnancies, and
the way to do that would be to make sure birth
control is available.
So, are contraceptives really oneof the main causes
of abortion? The idea just doesn't add up to me.
JUST ASK JANE
Need advice? Want answers? Just ask Jane.
Dear Jane,
There's this girl I'm thinking about asking out
but I don't know if I should. You see I was oest
friends with her brother until he passed away in a
car accident this past winter. Before the incident,
lie expressed that he didn't want me to date his
slightly older sister whom I met after meeting
him. I still like her and now that their family has
returned home I want to start a relationship,
which we didn't before because of distance, but I
also want to keep my best friend's wishes. What
should I do?
Signed,
Wants to Do the Right Thing
Dear Wants to Do the Right Thing,
First of all, my condolences to you in the
loss of your friend. Chances are your friend
most likely had concerns about you dating his
sister because of the impact it could have on
your friendship. I'm sure ne didn't want to ever
nave to choose between you, his best friend
and thee possibility of you breaking his sister's
heart (worst-case scenario). Unless you know of
another reason he had for forbidding this rela-
tionship, I don't think it should be an issue now
as long as you and the young lady in question
are on the same page in terms of grieving and
being ready for a romantic relationship. Think
of it this way: You've experienced the loss of
someone you both loved; it might actually make
you closer. If the family doesn't mind and you
have the best intentions, I don't think you'd be
dishonoring his memory or his request. Your
and her happiness are wnat matters now.
Signed,
Jane

Let the lottery games begin
What the N.C. lottery
funds
SHANNON DAVIS
STAFF WRITER
In August 2005, Gov. Mike
Easley signed into law the North
Carolina State Lottery Act and the
2005 Appropriations Act, which
endorsed the North Carolina Edu-
cation Lottery. North Carolina
became the 42nd state and the
last state on east coast to have a
lottery program.
The net proceeds are broken
down into three sections of edu-
cation. Fifty percent of the total
is to be used for reduction of
class size ratios in early grades
to 18 children per teacher and
for pre-kindergarten programs
for at risk young children. Forty
percent of the total will be used for
school construction. Roughly 65
percent of this 40 percent will be
distributed to each county based
on total school enrollment. The
remaining 35 percent of this total
will be distributed to each county
with average effective county
property tax rates above the
state average based on total school
enrollment. Finally, 10 percent
of the total is used for college
scholarships for students who
qualify for the federal Pell Grant.
These scholarships can be used
at North Carolina public and
private universities and commu-
nity colleges.
Interestingly enough, built
into the lottery law is a provi-
sion that sets aside one million
dollars for the state's Depart-
ment of Health and Human
Services each year to pay for
gambling addiction treatment
and education, which may come
as a cruel irony for some lottery
participants.
Heather Swaim, a junior
family and community services
major, expressed her outlook
about the lottery by stating, "My
opinion is that it is a good thing
because it brings money into
the public education systems in
North Carolina. The downfall to
it is that it teaches children and
youth about gambling at a young
age since the lottery is in almost
every gas station you go into
Sophomore psychology
major, Erica Myers said, "I
think that the North Carolina
Education Lottery is definitely
a good thing because it brings
money back to North Carolina
plus the money goes to help
better schools so they will have
a better learning environment
for students
The North Carolina Edu-
cation Lottery might be seen
by state officials as a godsend
for public education, but it is
already becoming a frustra-
tion for some school officials
in poorer parts of the state.
If you want to support
the North Carolina Educa-
tion Lottery, visit just about
any local gas station and pay
cash for your ticket. North
Carolina, like most other states,
will not allow patrons to buy
lottery tickets with credit
cards because this can create
debt. All lottery partici-
pants are encouraged not to
habitually buy lottery tickets
and never spend more than they
can afford.

Cancer prevention week
Mid-week seminar
to educate
AARON BORREGO
STAFF WRITER
It recently has come to my
attention that this week is cancer
prevention week here at ECU. In
order to find out
more, I got in
touch with
Georgia
Childs, the
Assistant
Director
of Campus
Wellness, in
the hopes of
being able to shed some light upon
this week's activities.
Campus Recreation and Well-
ness, along with the Healthy
PIRATES, will be hosting Cancer
Prevention Week October 2-6.
"Breast Cancer Fairies" and "Ball
Boys" will be out in front of the
Student Store on Wednesday
from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. educat-
ing students about Breast and
Testicular Cancer.
A nurse from Student Health
will be available to talk with
students and will help students
learn how to conduct breast and
testicular self-exams. I know in
years past they have had models of
the regions to efficiently show you
how to examine yourselves.
There will be giveaways and
raffles for students to enter as
well. Now that everyone knows
about the event, let's exam-
ine a few quick facts about the
two cancers.
Testicular cancer is the most
common cancer in young men
between the ages of 15 and 35
years old. However, one would be
wise to note that this cancer can
and will strike any male, at any
time. Even so, testicular cancer is
curable if it is found early enough.
Most testicular cancers are
found by men themselves, either
in testicle hardening, a painless
lump, a change in size of the testicle
or pain in the testicle. Testicular
cancer can be treated with surgery,
radiation therapy, chemotherapy,
surveillance or a combination of
these treatments.
Breast cancer has many risk
factors, so I will only be able to
get into a few. A personal history
of breast cancer or some non-can-
cerous breast diseases is a very
big indicator of potential breast
cancer risk. A family history of
breast cancer, particularly in a
mother, daughter or sister, could
lead to some indication of risk.
If there is evidence of a spe-
cific genetic defect upon
the genes BRCA1BRCA2,
which regulate cell growth, this
raises the probability of a serious
risk for cancer. Women who carry
defects on either of these genes
are at greater risk for developing
breast cancer. A Gail Index score
of at least 1.7 percent indicates a
viable assessment of risk to this
cancer as well. The Gail Index
uses risk factors such
as age, family his-
tory of breast cancer, age
of first menstrual period
and first pregnancy and
number of breast biopsies to
calculate a woman's risk of
developing breast cancer
within the next five years.
So as you see, this is no laugh-
ing matter and should be taken very
seriously. If your friends, whether
a guy or girl, or if you mother or
father are too embarrassed to go do
something like this for themselves,
get them out there and let
them know the risk. Bring it up
even if it is just so you know
the family heredity risk factor
for yourself. I hope all of you
check it out, it could be a
lifesaving opportunity.

R.A.D. program to ensure safety of ECU students
Teaching self-defense
to students that may
one day save a life
STACY DAIL
STAFF WRITER
The ECU Police Department
has announced that it will be offer-
ing R.A.D a program targeting
female students to inform them
about rape and other offenses, as
well as teaching them self-defense.
R.A.D, Rape Aggression
Defense, is a nation-wide self-
defense training class for women.
Students are taught basic and
realistic self-defense tactics by
nationally certified instructors
who have been trained specifically
for the class.
Whether or not students are
physically fit isn't an issue when
taking the class. Women ofall ages,
ability and strength are encour-
aged to participate and will be
taught techniques to defend them-
selves, and also other information
that they can use in every day life.
RAD. trains students to
make quick, smart decisions when
put in a bad situation where a
lot of women would panic, leav-
ing themselves vulnerable to
attack or rape.
The program isn't martial
arts based, but is meant to help
women develop physical and
non-physical tactics when
put in a bad situation.
At the beginning of the course,
students receive a manual that is
used for reference and practice.
This manual gives pointers involv-
ing things such as a look at the mind
of an attacker, and small but effi-
cient ways of preventing an attack.
Once the course is complete,
each student's manual will be
signed, which guarantees them a
free lifetime membership with the
R.A.D. program, allowing them to
return whenever they would like
for practice with an instructor.
R.A.D. has become a popular
program because of its simplicity
and easy to learn methods. It is
being used throughout many uni-
versities all over the nation, as well
as Canada, and is applauded for its
unique teaching methods.
Nationally, the program has
over 7,000 instructors who teach
at various colleges, universities,
law enforcement agencies and
other community organizations.
The program, which was started
in 1989, has reached more that
300,000 women and that number
is continually growing.
R.A.D. is the only self-

defense program that is endorsed
by the International Associa-
tion of Campus Law Fnforce-
ment Administrators, and also the
only program that offers a free
lifetime membership along with a
practice policy.
In the month of September
there has been over 70 reports
of breaking and entering, hit
and run, theft and assault,
among many other incidents.
While you may not see it this
way now, this class could save a life.
To sign up or to get more informa-
tion, call 328-1978, and once the
class is scheduled an e-mail will be
sent to all those who are registered.

Project road-trip: Greensboro I My Broths my roommate
A taste of the
mildly-wild West
JENNY AYERS
STAFF WRITER
Once deemed the "Gateway
City" for its potential to be a gateway
to the South, these days Greensboro
can at least be seen as a gateway
to a Greenville getaway. The two
towns may be named for the same
general but, apart from a surplus
of college students and restaurants,
that's about all they have in common.
Greensboro isn't quite the metropo-
lis that is Charlotte but there's more
than enough going on to make it
worth the three hour trek.
F"irst and foremost, there's
the food. As Greensboro is home
to a diverse community, there are
endless options when it comes to
dining. One of my favorite spots is
Bianca's, an Italian eatery located
near UNCG. If you love food
the way I do, this is an excellent
choice because it is very moder-
ately priced ($10-12 dollars an
entre) and every meal comes
with an appetizer, salad, bread
and dessert. It also helps that the
food is excellent.
If Italian isn't hitting the spot
then there's always Yum Yum's, a
quaint ice cream and hot dog res-
taurant located right across from
UNCG's campus. They are known
not only for their tasty hot dogs
and fries, but also for their dessert
- homemade ice cream. This place
is sure to fit in the FXU student's
budget at an average of four dol-
lars a meal.
In the historic section of down-
town you'll find another one of my
favorite spots, Ritchy's Uptown
Restaurant & Bar where they
serve something for everyone.
The food there is excellent and
the fun atmosphere doesn't hurt
either. If your budget will allow,
the fondue cuisine of The Melting
Pot is also a popular and appetiz-
ing option. There are also Thai.
Vietnamese, French and Greek
restaurants to choose from.
Whatever you're in the mood for,
Greensboro has it and it's just a
matter of finding it and squeezing
it all into one weekend.
When you're not busy eating,
there are lots of other things

of interesting architecture.

true when they're family.

having a sibling as a roommate
can be.

BROTHER
continued from A4
of two roommate in his college
career and enjoyed being by
himself for the iast couple of
years, neither of the brothers
dreaded their parents' idea of
them living together.
Matt's worries about coming
to school were finding buildings
and his classes. Mike then showed
his brother around, helping Matt
to figure out the infamous build-
ing codes on his schedule, telling
him about various school clubs
and going with him to meetings.
The Guzman brothers agree
that their parents' wanting them
together was more a way for Mike
to take care of and look out for
Matt and to make sure he got to
class. While Mike thinks that at
first Matt needed that kind of care,
it gradually became something
Matt didn't need all the time.
In the past few years, the
Guzman brothers feel they've
had to move around more than
average. With the closing of Slay
and the requirement changes in
Umstead, the Guzman broth-
ers say that their ability to stay
together came from the help of
their friends. It was because they
had friends in Umstead that they
were able to reserve space for
themselves when Slay closed,
and eventually got resituated so
that they were once again in the
same room together. When the
rules for Umstead changed, they
had to find an apartment and
call on the help of their friends
once again.
"They took both of the good
dorms away said Mike. "There
wasn't any good point to living
on campus anymore
The Guzman brothers say
they like living in an apartment
more than the dorms because
of benefits like more room and
better food from cooking their
OWll meals. The biggest challenge
of off-campus living, they say, is
being able catch the bus.
They alternate various house
duties, but each deal with their
own laundry. They both feel that
it is easier to organize and sort
out such duties with a family
member than it would be if they
were living with someone else.
Mike and Matt say that they
get along better than most broth-
ers, having similar interests and
like doing a lot of the same things
together.
"How many brothers can say
that?" Mike asked.
However, they are not without
their differences.
"I'm more of a loner
Matt stated.
"I like trying to get out more
with my friends Mike said.
They even shared one funny
story about a time Matt tried to
boil water in a glass bowl on the
stove, citing his love of pasta as
the cause for his lack of judgment.
"That was pretty stupid
Matt laughed.
Of course the brothers don't
see themselves living together on a
permanent basis, but they will look
back fondly on their time together.
"I have somebody to help me
out, I have somebody to hangout
with so I'm not always alone
here Mike said, even if that
person is his brother.

GREENSBORO
continued from A4
you're looking for a laugh. The
Comedy Zone never fails to pro-
vide classic entertainment. If you
decide to go there, be sure to call
ahead and make reservations, just
to be on the safe side. Also, if you
go to the Comedy Zone, after the
show you can step next door (for
a discounted price) and check out
Arizona Pete's where they have
live bands every night, line-danc-
ing and a mechanical bull.
If you enjoy live music, check
out Greene Street located down-
town. Last weekend they hosted
Anberlin and Far-Less along with
some local NC. bands. In a couple
of weeks you can catch Alexison-
fire. Not far from there you'll find
The N Club which doubles as a
venue and a nightclub.
On the larger scale there's
the Coliseum where you can find
all sorts of live entertainment.
For instance, Barney Live will
be coming for only twenty dol-
lars a person - which is quite the
bargain. If you're not that in tune
with your inner child. The Produc-
ers v also be there this weekend.
In a couple of weeks you can see
Nick Lachey in concert or, if that
isn't your style, Guns 'n Roses will
be performing at the beginning of
November. Again, Greensboro has
something for everybody.
Perhaps one of the best aspects
of the city and the thing that
truly separates it and Greenville
is the amount of shopping that
can be found there. Greensboro's
mall, Four Seasons Town Centre-
is home to ISO specialty stores
and three department stores
and is located conveniently off of
1-4085. There's also Friendly
Center, a 75 acre open shopping
center that is home to Macy's,
Belk, Sears, Old Navy and many
more. Near this shopping center
is Wendover Avenue where you'll
find Mecht's and Kohls. You will
certainly have a lot to show for
your trip, although it may mean,
coming back to Greenville broke.
With a variety of restaurants,
stores and extracurriculars to
choose from, Greensboro has a
lot to offer the college student.
Whether you just need to get
away from the stress of school or
take a break from the bubble that
is Greenville, another world is
only three hours away. Great food,
music, laughs and shopping are all
some things you can take away
from a getaway to Greensboro.
But be prepared for what it's going
to take from you, your money.

Like father, like son
Steve and Kort
Shankweiler share
football bond
RON CLEMENTS
SENIOR WRITER
Steve Shankweiler said he and
his wife tried to maintain a "low
profile" during their son, Kort's,
college recruitment process. The
J.H. Rose quarterback was being
courted by five schools in the
summer of 2001. The "Shanks" had
spent significant time in Greenville
while Kort was growing up, but it
was Steve's two-year absence while
Kort was already enrolled at ECU
that Dad said was "the most dif-
ficult time" his family has endured.
"It was a situation w here, he as
the son of a coach, and your dad
was let go, and now you've got
to create a loyalty to a guy that
didn't keep him said Steve, the
current offensive coordinator and
offensive line coach at ECU.
"It was a very difficult thing
for him and our family, but that's
why I'm so proud of him. The way
he overcame it and the way he
would never ever say a negative
word. That told me that he had a
lot more special about him than
I did. He had every reason to say
this isn't for me, but he sucked it
up and handled the situation a lot
better than I did
Coach Shankweiler left ECU
following the 2002 season to
become the offensive line coach
at Cincinnati following the resig-
nation of then head coach, Steve
Logan. The Shanks spent just
one season with the Bearcats
before heading to South Carolina
to accept a lateral position under
Steve Spurrier.
"For the first time in Patty
and mine's married life that our
children were out of the house;
all of sudden we're out of town
Coach Shankweiler said.
Despite the coaching change,
Kort remained at ECU, a place he
chose because of his familiarity
with the city of Greenville and the
ECU campus.
"When you live somewhere
for five years, you get comfortable
with the place said Kort. "Know-
ing that coaching staff and the
town and people that were in it, it
just felt like a good place
The6-foot-2, 231 pound senior
history education major said he
used the time apart from his par-
ents to launch his independence.
"When I got the chance to
move out, I moved out Kort said.
"I got my own place and live with
a couple of other guys. I go home
every now and then, but it's not
really my home' home
Kort's maturity and judgment
are things that his dad were able
to see five years ago, which is why
he and his wife let their son make
his own decision about where to
attend college.
"I really tried to stay out of
it. I tried to be just a dad and his
mother tried to be just a mother
Steve said. "We took him to cam-
puses and let him see for himself
during the summer. He wanted to
make his decision before his senior
year. We kind of let the process
take care of itself
Being on the staff at the time,
both Shankweilers said they
trusted Coach Logan and recruit-
ment director Jerry McManus to
"do it right
"One day he grabbed Coach
Logan and said, 'Hey, Coach
Logan, I got something to tell
you. This is where I want to go to
school Steve recalled. "He's been
blessed, or cursed, being the son
of a coach, in that he's been a lot
of places. He's seen the 100,000
seat stadiums. The awe factor was
not going to be a big deal for him.
Knowing that, we could sit back a
bit because we knew he was going
to make a mature decision
The former all-conference
quarterback, who threw for 1,200
yards and 11 touchdowns as a
senior at Rose, said he is comfort-
able with the fullback position
after being switched there by the
Thompson staff in 2004.
"It's different Kort said.
"You're not used to going in there
and banging heads with 250-
pound guys, but it's something
that I've adjusted to
His dad never had a doubt that
he could play another position.
"I knew when he came here
that we did not want to recruit
a quarterback that could not go
play another position Steve said.
"I knew that when Kortj made
the choice to move, I knew that if
that's what he really wanted to do
that he would find plenty of play-
ing time, and he has. It's really
worked out well
ECU has a history of high
school quarterbacks that end up
playing other positions, and the
2006 Pirates are no exception
with 10 former high school signal
callers now playing other positions
on both sides of the ball.
If the younger Shankweiler,
who is the youngest of three and
the only son, has a question about
his position or the offense, he
doesn't turn to Dad.
"Usually Coach junior Smith
w ill lias the answers for me Kort
said. "So I don't really have to go
harping to my father or Coach Shank
all the time. I just talk to Coach
Smith and he always helps me out
Off the field, the two try to
leave work at work, but still chat
about the game.
STEVE SHANKWEILER
"We talk a little bit of football
Kort said. "But it's nothing specific
about this school or anything. Just
talk about other games. This stuff
out here usually stays out here. We
talk about football because that's
something we both love
Whether on or off the gridiron,
the son sees similarities between
Steve Shankweiler, the father, and
Steve Shankweiler, the coach.
"He always harps on the same
things Kort said. "Be a leader,
make sure you do the right thing,
he doesn't let you get away with
stuff, always taught me to show
respect to everybody and go up
and shake somebody's hand and
be an example
Coach Shankweiler said he
is proud of how his son has han-
dled the pressures of being a
coach's son.
"One of the hardest things
in the world is to be the son of a
coach Coach Shank said. "Those
kids with dads as coaches have
such high expectations put on
them, so they have to go a little bit
above and beyond what everybody
else has to do to get on the field.
KORT SHANKWEILER
I'm really proud that he's fought
his way through that and is con-
tributing as much as he is
Getting his son that playing
time to contribute is a different
kind of pressure for Dad to bear.
"You kind of have to separate
being a dad from being a coach
Steve said. "It's hard for me to say
I think he's better than that kid.
You do when you need to, but you
gotta make sure that everybody
else in the room sees that. You
gotta make sure that he has really
earned that
While an NFL career for Kort
is unlikely, a career in football and
keeping with the family business
is something the 23-year-old w ill
strive for.
"I'm gonna try to get into
coaching Kort said. "It's some-
thing he tries to talk me out of just
about every other day because of
the hardships that go along with
it. I've been around it just about
all my life and it's something
that I love

Swimming and diving looking
for conference championship
Season to begin with
Purple and Gold meet
BENJAMIN LLOYD
STAFF WRITER
Perhaps you've heard of the
Swimming and Diving team as the
best team on campus This season
will mark the 24 non-losing
season for the Pirates, which starts
this Thursday at 3:00 p.m. with the
Purple & Gold meet. It will tie the
school record for most consecutive
winning seasons.

Last year the women's squad
went 10-1 when they lost by 5
points to Virginia Tech and the
men were 6-3, both finishing
second in the Conference Cham-
pionship. Along with the stun-
ning team performances, 24 of the
East Carolina swimmers became
all-conference. Last year some
swimmers also set CUSA records,
Bryan Yasinac set three records,
Christopher Lubenau had an
incredible five records, Greg
Neville has set two, and Matt
Donahue set three records. For the
diving team Ryan Hunt also set a
new record for the three-meter dive.
After a recuperating summer,
the Pirates first two weeks are
nothing but running, lifting
weights, and swimming. Before
the season starts the whole team
participates in a biathlon where
they swim two miles, run three
miles around the track, run back
to the pool and swim another
mile. During the season though,
the team spends twenty hours
a week with three to four hours
dedicated to lifting and the rest
spent in the pool. The swimming
and diving teams also meet every
morning at 6 a.m. and in the after-
noon at 3 p.m. That takes intense

Sophomore has had
tumultuous couple of
weeks
JAREDJACKSON
STAFF WRITER
Chris Belfiore, the sophomore
star on the cross country and track
team has been through a lot in the
past couple of weeks. He is battling
injury, recent ineligibility, and his
roommate and neighbor were vic-
tims of a crime.
Early in the morning on Tues-
day, Sept. 19, Belfiore and his room-
mate William Collins heard a loud
popping sound. When they went
outside to explore the source of the
noise, they found Collins's Mazda
Tribute on fire. Two nights later,
the same thing happened, only to
Belfiore's neighbor James Writh.
Writh happens to be a professor.
Left at the bottom of the door steps
at Belfiore's house were the words
"wrong house sorry
"The person at our house that
got his car caught on fire is actu-
ally on the track and cross country
team as well said Belfiore. "It's my
roommate, Will Collins. We were
actually high school rivals, but ended
up going to the same university and
being housemates. We're real good
friends now. It's crazy, it sucks it hap-
pened to him, it sucks it happened at
all. Anybody that would do that has
a screw loose
"It turns out I guess, they we're
trying to target our neighbors,
because our neighbors are profes-
sors. I figure maybe it was someone
they gave a bad grade too. It's been
pretty hectic
I then asked Belfiore how the
whole event has afTected his life and
mainly how his nights have been
after having been woken up to burn-
ing cars twice in a three-day span.
"Well, the first night it happened
like at 3:30 or 4 in the morning, and
by the time the police, fire depart-
ment, and investigators left it was
probably 6:30. So, we went and got
breakfast. Some of us came back and
slept because we didn't have class
until later
"The next night we stayed there
and everything was fine. The fol-
lowing night it happened again, but
this time it happened at about 2 in
the morning. It was just me and my
roommate Drew that were there and
we saw the paint and stuff on our
front doorstep. That kind of freaked
us out, so we went and stayed with
BELFIORE
some other teammates. We just
didn't want to be there that night
Belfiore is also nursing an injury
that could keep him sidelined until
the C-USA championships. The
championships will be held in
Greenville on Oct. 28.
"To get better, all I can do
is give it time. It's not like an
injury where I have to do rehab
or anything like that said Bel-
fiore. "I have a tear in a tendon
in my foot, my perennial tendon,
so the doctor says time heals all
If the arson incident or the injury
weren't enough, Belfiore is also ineli-
gible because he received an incom-
plete in a class his freshman year.
"I have an incomplete that I have
to finish said Belfiore. "Its a grade
I have to get filled in because I had
been sick last year and missed too
many days. The teacher has been
incredibly cooperative helping me
out. We worked together over the
summer and then it turns out I
have one more test I have to take
We thought it was previously com-
pleted. Its not a big deal though; all
I have to do is get in there and take
that test
Belfiore then added, "That's not
even the thing really holding me
back. My main concern right now is
just getting healthy. I'm hoping to be
back by conference championships.

dedication.
"The team is supposed to be
as good if not better than last
year said Coach Rick Kobe. This
season the Swimming and Diving
team are bringing in thirteen
freshmen swimmers, to add to the
already dominate returning class.
The men's squad could be one of
the best ECU teams to compete.
But, they will have to face rivals
Duke (Jan. 27) away, Virginia
Tech (Jan. 13) at home, and UNC
Wilmington (Jan. 14) at home,
which should provide impressive
swimming and diving.
Coach Rick Kobe has three
things on his mind for this upcom-
ing season, "Our goal every year
is to go undefeated, win the con-
ference championship, and have
a 3.0 team GPA The swim
and dive team have come close
before accomplishing two of the
continued from A6
three goals on a regular basis.
The team's GPAs are extremely
good. Last season the women were
around a 3.1 GPA while the men
were around a 2.9 GPA. This year
the teams is going for the triple
crown, trying to put in that little
extra effort to be the very best and
go undefeated and win the con-
ference championship. Hopefully
this year will be better than last
year, but it will be difficult with
the loss of 10 seniors to gradu-
ation. The women pirates lost
key elements in their time with
Courtney Felker (Sprint Free),
Lauren Harvard (Backstroke),
Lucy Hicks (Diving), Abbey
Hillen (Diving), Sarah Hunt
(BreaststrokeMiddle Distance),
Jackie Royce and Kelly Shinton
(IM Breaststroke), Adrienne Wil-
liams and Holly Williams (Sprint
FlyBackstroke). The men's team
won't have such large shoes to
fill in, since they only lost one
diver to graduation, Robbie Derr.
This year the Pirate divers
couldn't look any better. Return-
ing from last year are Ryan Hunt
and Christie Icenhower who made
their NCAA Zone meet. Rebecca
Perry also made the NCAA
swim meet.
The 2006-07 season will
begin this Thursday with some
competition against itself, in
the Purple & Gold meet at the
Minges Aquatic Center. Their
first full competition will be
against Davidson on October 12
at 12:00 p.m. The swimming and
diving team will also be attending
the Nike Cup, which is an invita-
tional tournament only, on the
weekend of November 16-18. Last
year a couple of swimmers quali-
fied for the U.S. Open which is to
be held on Nov. 30- Dec. 2.
The fall 06-07 season for
swimming and diving marks
an historic event for this school.
One that is sure to bring broken
records and championship tro-
phies back to ECU. The teams
needs your support and want
you to be there every swim meet.
Remember Pirate fans, ECU
swimming and diving have been
champions in 99-00 season, 00-01
season, and 02-03 season. Coach
Rick Kobe also won his 850 win
last year. So don't forget to catch
those Pirates with gills in their
first home meet against Davidson
on the 14th in the Minges Aquatic
Center. For more information on

continued from A6
fiore. "I got strep throat, so I
wasn't doing a whole lot of run-
ning, and I couldn't actually attend
practice because I was kind of
quarantined for a while. For all
that having happened, I wasn't
too disappointed with my times
Belfiore is also an essential
runner to the track and field team
as he is to the cross country team.
He is really optimistic and look-
ing forward the upcoming season.
"We have some really good kids,
said Belfiore. We have some kids
that we're nationally ranked in high
school that are up here now. We were
young last year and we did well. I
think we're going to do awesome in
track. I got high hopes for track
Belfiore was then asked where
he thought the track and field team
could end up in C-USA this season.
"Third of fourth realistically
is what we should be shooting for.
UTEP and Houston ate the pow-
erhouse teams, but I say, the crown
won't stand for long with the way
we are improving
Belfiore also wanted to stress
the need for fan support.
"We could defiantly use some
fan support said Belfiore. "We
don't get a whole lot of people that
come out to the races. We go to
the swim meets, and the volleyball
matches. We've been to tennis
matches, and defiantly the football
and baseball games. We're big sup-
porters and it would be great to get
a little bit back. We'll actually be
hosting the conference champion-

Bowden: Wake
Forest losses took
him close to "hell"
(AP) Clemson coach
Tommy Bowden is a devout
Christian who can quote a Bible
verse as quickly as a scheme in
the Tigers' play book. Still, he
can't help thinking evil thoughts
about Wake Forest.
Demon Deacons coach Jim
Grobe "has probably taken me
closer to hell than I ever want
to go Bowden said.
The 15th-ranked Tigers
(4-1, 2-1 Atlantic Coast Confer-
ence) are off to their best start in
five years. But they've lost two of
their past three games to Wake
Forest (5-0, 1-0) both at Groves
Stadium, where this Saturday's
game takes place.
In 2003, Wake's stunning
45-17 victory, the Demon Dea-
cons led 45-0 to start the fourth
quarter, brought Bowden a fire-
storm of discontent that nearly
cost him his job. Rumors about
Bowden's departure took hold
of the campus and fans, and
Bowden was confronted by a
reporter the Sunday after the
lopsided loss asking if the coach
had resigned earlier that day.
While Clemson rallied with
four huge wins to finish 9-4 and
Bowden gained a contract exten-
sion through 2010, he hasn't let
go of that turbulent time. "It
stays as a reminder he said.
Things were less dramatic
last fall, yet just as bitter.
This time, Wake Forest took
a 21-0 lead and survived Clem-
son's late rally for the 31-27 vic-
tory. The Tigers, then 2-3 after
the defeat, again responded with
a flourish and ended with six
wins in their final seven games.
The comebacks, though,
don't take away from what hap-
pened in those losses, Bowden
and his players say. How does
Wake do it?
"I've been asking myself the
same thing Clemson offensive
lineman Marion Dukes said.
Bowden says his Wake Forest
counterpart, Grobe, typically
gets the maximum effort and
performance from the players he
has - players sometimes thought
too undersized or undertalented
to make a difference in big time
college football.
"I just like the style the team
plays he said. "I just have a lot
of respect for what he's done
Wake Forest sticks with its
option-style attack and performs
it to perfection, Clemson defen-
sive coordinator Vic Koenning
said. "They know their schemes
and they know what they're
doing he said.
Plus, Wake Forest has had
the quirky plays go its way
against the Tigers.
Dukes was a freshman in for
a few snaps three years ago when
he missed a block that let defen-
sive tackle Jyles Tucker literally
take the ball out of quarterback
Charlie Whitehurst's hands
and break away for an 12-yard
fumble return touchdown.
Then last year, one ball inter-
cepted by Wake Forest bounced
off Chansi Stuckey's legs.
"You watch and say, 'Areyou
serious? " Dukes said.
The defeats have left a per-
manent impact on Clemson's
program. Bowden said the 45-17
loss was one reason he changed
directions on defense, getting
rid of then coordinator John
Lovett in favor of Koenning
before the 2005 season.
The players remember too
well the sick, disgusted feelings
on the bus tides back to Clem-
son its past two trips to Wake
Forest.
Right guard Nathan Bennett
described it as dead silent. "That
was pure pain Bennett said.
Bennett, a senior, says little
extra motivation is needed to
get Clemson ready for this one.
Beside the Tigers' personal his-
tory with the Demon Deacons,
the winner will have an added
leg up in the ACC's Atlantic
Division race. Besides, Bennett
says, "I'd hate to lose to them
three out of four years and beat
Florida State three out of four
In the end, Bowden says
there no one else to blame for
his team's Wake Forest failings
other than himself.
"I know with us, it looks like
on Saturday, they show up, they
play hard and they execute
Bowden said. "And that's where
Jim Grobe has done a better job

game
