Wall of Hate expresses students' feelings
A student expresses her idea of a phrase that defines hate on the 'Wall of Hate' outside Ledonia Wright Cultural Center Tuesday. Other Hate Out Week events continue throughout the week.
Opening of display part
of "Hate Out Week"
Hate Out Week, a time for
the ECU community to examine
aspects of hatred and discrimina-
tion that still exist today, is in its
"This week was designed to
draw attention to the many -isms
that plague our everyday existence
such as genderism, racism and
oppression said Jessica Ledbetter,
emissary for the Ledonia Wright
Cultural Center. "It is an attempt
or rather a consciousffort to edu-
cate and aware ECU students of
the effects of hate on others
The week is the brainchild of
LaQuesha Foster, Associate Director
oftheLedonia Wright Cultural Center.
"It's something I came up with
to go beyond celebrating diversity
and look at why we have to cel-
ebrate diversity said Foster. "We
need to look at all the issues
The week kicked off Monday
night with a workshop by Karin
Zipf and Kenneth Wilburn, both
of the history department, and
got into full swing Tuesday at
noon, when about forty students
and faculty members attended the
opening of the "Wall of Hate
The "Wall of Hate" is a chance
to express personal experiences
with hatred through a writing or
"The wall is where you write
down any racial slurs or epithets
you've heard so people can look at
them and think about why they are
said, how many times they've heard
them and how they've reacted or
responded Foster said.
The wall will be open until
Friday, when it will.be torn down

a light on and illuminate hatred

Oct. 24 passes by each year
with most people unaware of the
important history involved in the
day. The United Nations, as we
know it today, formed on Oct.
24, 1945, thus the day becoming
United Nations Day. To mark
the occasion, the Model United
Nations Club along with the
department of political science
held a panel discussion on non-
proliferation open to all faculty
and students. Three distinguished
faculty from the political science
and history departments were
invited to speak.
Dr. Nancy Spalding spoke
first on the history of the United
Nations, reform and the Non-
proliferation treaty. Specifically
brought up, Dr. Spalding described
how any mejnber state could volun-
tarily leave the Non-proliferation
treaty to restart a nuclear program
as thev voluntarily entered it.
Currently the other UN members
who have not signed the treaty are
Cuba, Israel, Pakistan and India.
Following her speech. Dr.
Jalil Roshandel spoke on Iran. Or.
Roshandel went over a shortened
history of the country, as well as
some differences between the Shan
and the Islamic Republic in terms
of their relations with the West
and Israel. Also mentioned, was
how Iran is mostly surrounded by
either nuclear states or U.S. troops.
The last of the three speakers
was Dr. J. Tucker who spoke on
North Korea. One of Dr. Tuck-
er's main points was on how to
handle the current situation of
nuclear testing from a global
perspective. Taking the side of
persuasion rather than force,
he made a connection between
the Democratic People's Republic
of Korea and U.S.Chinese rela-
tions. As there is a large trade
deficit between the U.S. and China,
at the same time the U.S. is helping
the Chinese economy grow, giving
them confidence and hopefully
turn China into more of a key
player in the world. He pointed
out the troubled past between
the Koreans and the Japanese
and their close proximity to one
The hour-long discussion
capped off with a brief question
and answer period, where some of
the students had the opportunity
to respond to the panel.
This was ECU's first year cel-
ebrating United Nations Day and
with over 60 students in attendance,
the event was quite the success.

Liquor store deaths blamed on
suspect in Southern crime spree
(AP) Tennessee authori-
ties said Monday that the sus-
pect in a Southern crime spree
was the assailant who killed
two liquor store employ-
ees during an armed robbery.
The Tennessee case is among
a series of crimes tied to William
Tom Ashby during a weeklong
string of violence that left at least
four people dead and another
seriously wounded. Ashby, 37,
of Savannah, Ga killed himself
during an Oct. '2 standoff with
TBI spokeswoman Jennifer
Johnson said agents found bullet
shell casings at the crime scene,
which matched those at crime
scenes that Ashby was linked to
in other states.
The car Ashby was traveling
in was also seen at the store before
One of Ashby's victims was
University of Virginia graduate
student Elizabeth Halter, 22, who
was found in Waynesburo, Va
near a car Ashby is believed to have
stolen in Effingham County, Ga.
An Effingham convenience store
clerk was shot in the head before
the car was stolen but survived.
Authorities in South Carolina
say Ashby is also linked by bullet
fragments to the death of l
year-old man found shot to death
last month inside his fruit stand
One Fairfield officer killed, one
wounded in shooting
(AP) A police officer sent
to check on a suspicious vehicle in
a Birmingham area neighborhood
was fatally shot as she stepped
from her patrol car Monday, and a
backup officer was wounded as he
arrived at the scene seconds later
Officer Mary Smith, who
joined the Fairfield Police Depart-
ment a lew wicks ago after retir-
ing from the police force in
neighboring Birmingham, was
responding to a citizen's call
about a suspicious vehicle about
10:15 a.m. when she was shot.
Officer Eric Burpo, who
arrived on the scene a few seconds
later, was shot in the leg before he
exited his car.
A brother of the wounded offi-
cer attends Miles, Lee said.
The shooting occurred a few
miles from the scene of a shooting
that claimed three police officers

Ceremony marks end of formal
search for Portland boy
(AP) The family of a miss-
ing Portland boy gathered at
Crater Lake over the weekend to
recognize that the formal search
for their son is over.
Kirston Becker, the mother
of Sammy Boehlke, 8, stressed
that the small ceremony was not
a memorial service.
The group gathered on Rim
Drive, near the spot where Sammy
was last seen October 14th. It
included about a dozen family
members and six Klamath Tribes

Flying red bra causes acci-
(AP) Emily Davis, 17, of
Bowling Green, was charged with
one cqunt of littering for putting
her red bra on the antenna of a car
traveling on 1-75 on Sept. 2G with
three other teenage girls inside.
The bra, which reportedly had
been frayed because it was chewed
by Davis' dog earlier in the day,
flew off the antenna. The Ohio
Highway Patrol said a trailing
car with two Toledo men inside
swerved into the grassy median
to avoid the object, flipping over
An arraignment hearing for
Miss Davis is scheduled for Nov. 1
in Wood County Juvenile Court.
In a civil suit filed against
the four girls in Wood County
Common Pleas Court, James
Campbell, 37, the driver of the
2006 Dodge Neon that crashed,
blamed the flying bra for trig-
gering the accident. Campbell,
who was thrown from the vehicle,
suffered a broken vertebra in his
neck and a fractured thumb. His
passenger, Jeff Long, 40, suffered
some broken ribs.
Tim Atkins, an assistant
county prosecutor, said a convic-
tion on the littering charge is
punishable by community service,
a fine, and possibly probation. He
said he plans to recommend that

Professor promotes black-owned South African wines
(MCT) Wine is usually not
the first thing that comes to mind
when thinking of South Africa,
but a Macalester College profes-
sor hopes wine drinkers w ill soon
think of that country's pinot noir
along with Nelson Mandela and
De Beers diamonds.
Bill Moseley, a Macalester
assistant geography professor
conducting field research on land
reform in South Africa, has begun
promoting wines produced by
black-owned wineries to wine
"South Africa is at a very
interesting juncture in its his-

The wine industry as a whole
is wildly successful. But the suc-
cess of this subsector, the black
co-owned, is an open question. "I
can definitely see that there are
markets for that said Paul Wen-

Moseley's main research
focuses on the agricultural and

white owners with alcohol to keep
Since apartheid ended in 1994,
thousands of these laborers have

first black-owned businesses m
But while the South African
wine industry has blossomed into
the ninth largest in the world,
behind Germany and just ahead
of Portugal, the dozens of black-
owned wineries have not enjoyed
the same success, Moseley said.
He worries that if the black-
owned wineries fail it might lie
seen as a sign that the African
National Congress, which took
power in 1994, is not serious about
redistributing SO percent of the
privately held land to the black
majority as promised.
Moseley said that these win-
eries, with names such as New

bold venture for black economic

ity of the wines they produce.

created in South Africa in 1925.
"They're turning out a lot of really

Wentzel, the wine shop owner,

he'll stock them if he can find a
distributor, and if the wines are
good enough. "The bottom line

out of Kinston
Last Wednesday in Washington DC the Institute
for Policy Studies presented its 30th Annual Letelier-
Moffitt Human Rights Awards. One ol'the main award
winners was Maher Arar, a Canadian citizen who until
recently was being held in a Syrian prison where he
endured over ten months of torture and horrific condi-
tions. Mr. Arar was not locked up in Syria for commit-
ting a crime or for any reason at all; he was flown there
to be tortured under the direction of the CIA.
Mr. Arar's story began in JFK international airport
in 2002 while returning from a family vacation with
his wife and children. In the airport, Mr. Arar was
interrogated by FBI officials and then was detained in
Teterboro, N.J. He was then flown to Italy and then
to Jordan where he was severely beaten before being
driven over the border into Syria.
Once into Syria Maher was taken to the Palestine
Branch, one of the worst interrogation centers in the
world. Maher was tortured and beaten on an almost
daily basis until he was forced to admit he had trained
for Al-Qaeda in Afghanistan and was an A)-Qaeda
operative. Of course, these statements were not true
and upon his release back to Canada, both U.S. and
Canadian officials declared his innocence.
Maher Arar is not alone, there have been hundreds
of innocent people kidnapped and detained under the
direction of the CIA in countries all over the world like
Morocco, Libya and Afghanistan. Mr. Arar however, is
one of the first victims to live to tell the story of what
the CIA calls the "Extraordinary Rendition Program
The rendition program is not new and has long
been used to capture people who flee the country to
avoid sentencing. However, after 911 the Bush admin-
istration put an "extraordinary" twist on the program
and has been extracting people from various countries
not to bring them to be sentenced, but to be tortured
in countries who do not uphold the laws of the Geneva
The company who flies and directs the kidnap-
ping and extraction is called Aero Contractors and is
based out of Kinston, N.C. of all places. Even though
the Supreme Court has put pressure on the Bush
administration to uphold the Geneva Convention,
Aero Contractor is still operating out of the Kinston
Regional Jet Port.
This sort of practice is an abomination and a dis-
grace to all Americans who still believe in the United
States as a free and humane country. Why is it that
instead of detaining and sentencing suspected terror-
ists on our soil we are flying them to foreign lands to
be tortured and avoid sentencing?
Currently, there are 911 suspects that were
involved in the WTC bombing being tortured in
foreign facilities instead of being tried for the crimes
they committed. These sorts of barbaric practices are
only worsening our relations in the Middle East and
all over the world.
Currently lawyers in Italy and Germany are
pressing criminal charges against the CIA operatives
involved in kidnappings in their countries. In addition,
the actual terrorists are following our example and using
our brutality as fuel for the flame of Islamic extremism.
If it is our goal to bring democracy to the Middle
East, what are we doing kidnapping and torturing? Am
I the only one who feels ashamed to hear what's going
on in our own back yard?
JUST ASK JANE
Need advice? Want answers? Just ask Jane.
My boss has to be the rudest person that I have ever
met. She constantly tries to embarrass me in front of
my co-workers and she seems to go out of her way to
make me miserable. It's an amazing job that will help
me in the future, but I'm ready to quit just to get away
from her. What should I do?
Dear Stressed Out,
Firstly, you have to decide how important this job is
to you. What kind of hours do you work? How serious
is it? Does this bad job experience bleed over into the
rest of your day or is it something you can live with?
Obviously, it has adversely affected you or you wouldn't
have written to me.
So I now pose a question to you: Is there another job
opportunity in a related fieldoffice that you could take
that would satisfy your career ambitions? If you look
around and think you may have an alternative, apply there.
Begin looking for another, perhaps similar, position
that will make you happy. Also, if you feel comfortable
doing it or if you realize that you really can't leave this
job, consider scheduling a meeting with your boss to
speak to her about how you feel.
Many times, people in leadership positions walk a
fine line between helping you become a better employee
and being overly authoritative or condescending. The
last thing you need at work is someone to patronize
you or belittle you in front of others.
I suggest a straightforward approach. Tell her that
you feel that she treats you differently, but be prepared
to cite specific incidences in which she has made you
feel this way. A complaint is not much good if there
is nothing to back it up. If she seems responsive, then
hopefully, your work environment will become a much
more pleasant place. If nothing comes of it or she's
simply unresponsive or argumentative, you may want
to consider looking for another job or, as a last resort,
giving this one up.
A final word of caution: In the future (if you quit
this) do not, by any means, tell your potential employer
that you couldn't stand your current boss. No employer
wants to hear a potential employee badmouth previ-
ous employers and, since they won't know what really
happened, it's best to avoid it altogether. Cite another
reason for leaving anything. It can be something like;
"I simply did not have the time to serve that company
in a way that best suited its needs It's nice and safe
and no one can tell you that it wasn't true for you at

A Halloween candy
best and worst list
Last year, the per capita candy consumption in
America was 26 pounds of candy per person, accord-
ing to the United States Census Bureau.
Not surprisingly, a sufficient amount of those pounds
are believed to be consumed around Halloween time.
In 2005, the Census Bureau also estimated that
nearly 36.1 million kids across the country
were legally eligible (between the
ages of five and 14) to go trick-
or-treating. This estimate

loween party you need to create
the right atmosphere. D6cor is
the perfect way to turn a boring,
cramped apartment or home into
a Halloween haven.
Decorations such as black
and orange candles, spider webs,
pumpkins, lights, balloons, bats,
ghosts and caldrons will add a
touch of festive charm to your place
without breaking your budget.
Next up, you may want to
enlist one of your more musically
inclined friends to produce a
soundtrack for the night. Playing
upbeat music such as hip hop or
techno will definitely keep your
guest on their feet. You may also
want to opt tor playing Halloween
themed songs such as the "Mon-
ster Mash" and "Thriller" to get
the party started off right.
After your guests are done
dancing the night away, some
may want to play a game such
as charades or Clue to wind
down. Both games allow
guests to tap into their creative
outlets while keeping with the
A costume contest among
guests for the most imaginative
costume is a good way to get them
to wear the most outrageous and
original attire possible. You can
solicit your friends to serve as a
panel of judges and make up a
rubric for scoring each costume.
Kveryone knows a party isn't
complete without the right types
of food and beverages on hand.
Prepare for the bash a couple of
days in advance in order to make
sure that you have all of the essen-
tial items that you desire.
As far as food goes, since
it is a party, no one will come
over expecting a meal so just
be prepared with snacks such
as chips, nachos, crackers,
vegetables with dip and the most
obvious treat, candy.
When deciding what bever-
ages to have on hand, you may
want to consider buying the
necessary ingredients in order to
mix Halloween inspired drinks
such as Zombies and Bloody
Marys. Pouring a mix of your
favorite alcoholic beverage, fruit
juice and Jell-O favoring into a
Halloween shaped mold provides
a festive twist on the old favorite
of Jell-O shots.
Remember to keep some non-
alcoholic beverages such as soda,
juice and water on hand for your
underage guests as well as the
The most important ingredi-
ent to a wicked Halloween bash is
great people, so invite all of your
friends over and you'll have fun
no matter what you do.

One of my favorite spots is
Kelly's Restaurant & Tavern
in Nags Head. You can enjoy
fine dining at Kelly's but it's
also a great place to go for
fun after hours. On the week-

from 4:30 p.m. until 2 a.m. with
live bands and nightly drink
specials. The staff here is
awesome so be sure to leave
your waiter or waitress a nice
token of appreciation.
There you have it, folks. From
beautiful scenery and many an
opportunity for the outdoor
excursion to great food and good
shopping, the Outer Banks has
a lot to offer and is worth the
two-hour drive from Greenville.
So the next time you're sitting at
home bored on a Friday night, you
should take a spontaneous trip

ECU men's basketball coach
Ricky Stokes said before fall prac-
tice began that he felt his team
would be a closer, faster and better
shooting team in 2006
Following Saturday's Purple-
Gold game, it looks like Stokes
may be right.
Darrell Jenkins hit a three-
pointer with under 40 seconds
remaining to lift the Gold team
to a 44-43 victory over the Purple
team as the two teams combined to
shoot .53 percent from the floor.
"It's been a long preseason,
and we were just excited to get on
the court said Jenkins, a junior
college transfer from Southern
Idaho. "We've been together since
the summer. We feel comfortable

just do what the coaches tell us
to do and it carries over on to the

we did shoot the ball fairly well
said Stokes, who is entering his
second season at KCU following
an 8-20 campaign in 200.5. "It's
kind of like a double-edged sword.
You want to shoot the basketball
better. It's something we've been
stressing since day one. Shooting
the basketball, getting shots out of
the offense, and guys just relaxing
and putting the ball in, so we hope
we continue in that, and the ball

Volleyball on six-game winning streak
Junior outside hitter Mignon Dubenion goes for one of her six kills against Rice during ECU'S win
Two Pirates combine at the net for one of the team's 11 blocks.
Bevan sets school-
record for career
Chris Rushing questioned his
team's heart during a non-con
ference loss midway through the
season. Six conference wins later,
the ECU volleyball head coach has
changed his tune.
The Pirates have won seven of
their last games, defeating Rice
3-2 on Friday and Houston 3-1
Sunday inside Minges Coliseum.
The volleyball team's wins
this weekend allowed the Pirates
to beat Houston for the first time
ever, advancing their consecutive
Conference USA win streak to six
games in a row, which is a school
record and gave the Pirates their
16 win. It ensured volleyball's first
back-to-back winning season for
the first time since 1977-78.
Friday night's game went
the whole distance, taking the
Pirates and Rice all five games to
decide the match. The first game
went to Rice 30-24; ECU took
the next two games 30-17 and
30-20. The Owls won the fourth
game 30-18 sending ECU to only
their second match of the season
to go the full distance. ECU won
the fifth and final game 15-12.
ECU's match up versus Hous-
ton proved to be less of a challenge
for the Pirate squad. The Pirates
dominated Houston in the first
game 30-22, when ECU had six
blocked attempts and 18 kills of
The second game went to the
Cougars 30-20 when they fought
back hard with 18 kills of their
own. ECU was flat-footed for the
start of the second game until
seniors Heidi Krug and Jaime
Bevan both blocked a spike to
give the Pirates momentum going
into the third game. ECU won
the third game 30-21 when they
contained Houston to 14 of 44 kill
attempts. The game was decided
when junior outside hitter Mignon
Dubenion blocked an attempt and
crushed Houston's hope.
The fourth game seemed to
be much easier for the ECU Vol-
leyball team, when the Houston
Cougars ran out of gas and just
couldn't keep up with ECU's
speed. ECU won the fourth game
30-27 when Jaime Beven had
the game winning kill right in
the middle of Houston's half.
ECU's stats for the whole
game definitely stood behind the
final score. With 17 blocks in the
game, 57 kills and 44 digs the
ECU Volleyball team took their 16
win this season with gusto.
Bevan also had an amazing
Sunday with 11 blocks of her own,
which might be here own personal
record, and 14 kills.

Swimming and diving still undefeated
Pirates down College
On Saturday ECU's football
team wasn't the only ECU team
defending their home turf. This
weekend alone the ECUwomen's
swimming and diving demolished
College of Charleston (154- 87)
and Gardner-Webb (142- 97). The
men beat College of Charleston
(145- 90) keeping both men's and
women's teams unbeaten.
In a swim meet, there are 13
events and the Pirates dominated
nine of them. The Pirates also
ran the board in diving, with
juniors Ryan Hunt and Christie
Icenhower both taking first in
the one-meter and three-meter
boards. The freshmen divers also
faired well this weekend being in
close second to their dominant
teammates while beating out
the other schools all together.
Junior Rebecca Perry is still
undefeated in the 5o-yard free-
style, recording a 23.55 second
time. Junior Megan Pulaski also
kept her unbeaten streak alive
while winning the 1,000-yard
free-style with a time of 10:28.23.
The women's swimming and
diving team took first in the
women's 400-yard medley relay,
400-yard IM, 200-yard Butterfly,
1,000-yard freestyle, 50-yard free-
style and 200-yard backstroke.
The men's squad also fared well
against the College of Charleston.
Greg Neville took first place in
the 200-yard backstroke with a
time of 1:55.87. Matt Donahue
won the 200- yard butterfly with
a time of 1:56.3.5, dominating his
closest competitor. The men took
home first in 400-yard medley
relay, 1,000-yard freestyle, 200-
yard freestyle, 50-yard freestyle,
400-yard IM, 200-yard butterfly,
200-yard backstroke and the 500-
Freshmen were a part of
six first place finishes. Blake
Briese finished first in the
500 (4:49.02) and 1,000-yard
freestyle (10:04.98) events.

pleasant to see the ball go through
the basket Overall, we made some
shots, which is a good thing"
The Pirates came out of the
scrimmage healthy, with junior
Jeremy Ingram and sophomore
Sam rltnnant coming back from
injuries, something Stokes said
was important to do. The former
Virginia Tech head coach said he
was pleased w ith the performance
of the seven freshmen.
"It was their first opportunity
to play in front of a crowd Stokes
said. "I'm sure they were a little
nervous, but overall, I thought
it was a good experience for all
of them. They played hard and
I'm sure they'll continue to get
better There was nobody I was
disappointed with. I thought all

Senior Courtney Captain said
he thought the freshmen handled
"They're all competing and
give it everything they've got
everyday said Captain. "When
they mess up, they want to learn
something and know what they
did wrong and try to get better
Captain added that, in the past,
that willingness to learn was some-
thing missing from the program
"In the past, if somebody
messed up, they'd get an attitude
and turn their head and they think
they already know what they did
wrong and they don't want to hear
it the 6-foot guard from Galves-
ton, Tex said. "But these guys,
they want to know. They come to
you and ask questions, I think it's

said that, coupled with his last name,
makes him the team leader by delimit.
"I'm the only senior: I've got
to be the captain Captain said
"My name's Captain and I've got
to be the leader
During the summer and early
fall, Stokes implemented manda-
tory team functions to promote
camaraderie. Minnant, who was
named to the Conference USA
freshman team last season, said
he feels the team is closer because
of those team functions, which
include obligatory team breakfasts.
"We're real close already and
the season hasn't even started
yet said the (-4 sophomore from
Charlotte. "We get to see each
other every morning. Waking up
tired and seeing each other every
morning, practice, weight room,
all that, study hall, all that, we see
each other all the time so I think
that's helping us on the court also,
by being together so much
The development on the
court was evident Saturday as
the Pirates shot 59 percent from
3-point range. While the team
shot the ball well from the floor.
Stokes said the shooting from the
charity stripe "must improve
"We have to shoot free throws
better if we want to be success-
ful Stokes said, who added that
he will have the team shoot more
free throws in practice.
Minnant knows the free-throw
shooting is a problem.
"That's something we need to
work on Minnant said, who tal-
lied l.S points to lead the Purple
squad. "That was a big disappoint-
ment we had last year, not making

five 3-pointers, said conditioning

"One thing that Coach Stokes
really stresses to get in exercise
at the practice Jenkins said.
"During practice we're constantly
shooting after we're done with
defensive drills. We get up a lot
ofshots, during practice and after
practice. We're definitely going to
be a running team so we need the
conditioning, we need the weights,
and we're just ready to go
The Pirates have nine freshmen and sophomores on the roster.
Captain knows the team has
things to work on, but feels good
about how the scrimmage went.
"We shot well, and the score
was close said Captain, who
scored 10 points. "The defense
wasn't too good because there
was too much scoring going on. It
was a positive scrimmage because
of the scoring, but we do need to
work on the defense because it
was a close game and those close
games will come down to the
defense. Who's gonna stop who?"
Captain added that, ultimately,
the goal is to get to the NCAA
Tournament, but the primary
goal for '2006 is to have a winning
season, and he's optimistic the
Pirates can achieve it.
"I think we're gonna have a
real good season he said.
