Reaping the benefits
of studying abroad
The College of Education welcomes new members in their ceremony on Saturday in Fletcher Recital Hall.
1,000 more places

The College of Education
inducted 28 new members into
the Educator's Hall of Fame on
Saturday.
The ceremony took place at 10
a.m. in Fletcher Recital Hall.
Inductees were presented a
plaque bearing their name and
background in education during
the ceremony. John Swope, associ-
ate dean of the College of Educa-
tion, read each plaque aloud as each
inductee stood to be recognized.
Jessica Davenport, director of
communications for the College of
Education, said that inductees are
those with an outstanding back-
ground in education that family
members, friends and colleagues
wish to recognize by contributing
$ 1,000 to Educator's Hall of Fame
scholarship, which provides funds
for ECU students in the College
of Education.
Marcy Romary, director of
development in the College of Edu-
cation, said that the first two schol-
arships will be awarded this spring
for the 2007-08 academic year.
"Our goal is to eventually
have a million dollars in the
scholarship fund Romary said.
Among this year's inductees
were Callaree Jarvis Horton,
who, along with her two sisters,
who were also inducted, worked a
combined total of 124 years in the
education field.
Callaree herself worked 34
years, mostly as an elementary
school teacher, and taught the very
first kindergarten class at Eastern
Elementary in Washington, N.C
in 1969.
She thinks starting education
on the kindergarten level is crucial
to the rest of children's academic
lives.
"When they're that young, you
make such a difference Horton said.
Another long time educator
and inductee this year was Katie
Corbett Johnson, who spent most
of her time teaching second grade
in several different North Carolina
counties including Pitt, Edge-
combe, Johnston and Sampson.
She has also been a member of
Delta Kappa Gamma, a national
honor society for women educa-
tors, for nearly 40 years and has
worked with the organization to
promote education.
Johnson pointed out that many
fine educators remain unrecognized.
"I feel really humble. There are
a lot of other people that could be
sitting up there Johnson said.
There are currently about 270
members in the hall.with close
to 1,000 more spots'available.
The plaques are located in the
Speight Building.

Transform your
classroom into a global
experience
GENERRA CORNWELL
STAFF WRITER
ECU has a Study Abroad
Program that is designed to allow
students to travel to different
countries and apply what they
have learned in their classroom
to the reality of that culture. This
program gives students an oppor-
tunity to explore the cultural and
social dynamics of another place.
This experience provides the
student with academic as well as
personal growth that can not be
taught in a domestic classroom. It
allows the students to not just read
about the lifestyles and cultures of
a country but to see these things
first hand and to interact with the
natives of that country.
ECU student, Aimee Sul-
livan, junior media studies and
production major, participated in
the Study Abroad Program last
spring. The program was con-
ducted in Manchester. England.
When asked how the learning
environment was compared to
your typical classroom she replied,
"The classes are a lot smaller,
there were only about 12 people
in my class, it was a very laid back
environment. I only had to attend
class once a week and it was a
seminar and lecture. Most of the
teachers didn't take attendance, we
didn't have tests or exams, there
wasn't much homework assigned.
We called our professors by their
first names
Although this program is a
wonderful opportunity Sullivan
stated that it does have it's pros
and cons. One advantage of the
program was "that you get to go
to a different country and experi-
ence everything! The teachers
are really understanding and laid
back, which gave us a lot of time
to travel Some disadvantages of
the program were "the program
was not very organized. I still
don't have my grades back so I
am 13 credit hours behind. I also

Local librarian travels to Chile
Dr. Larry White speaks
on his experience
BENJAMIN CORMACK
STAFF WRITER
Dr. Larry White, assistant
professor of the ECU College of
Education's Library Science and
Instructional Technology Depart-
ment, was recently invited by the
United States Embassy and the
Chilean Library Association to
present the key note address at the
11th Annual International Library
Science Conference that took place
Oct. 26.
Being invited by the U.S.
Consulate to go to Santiago was
nothing short of a pleasant sur-
prise for Dr. White, who had
given a presentation previously
at the International Federation of
Library Associations Conference
in Seoul, South Korea. Evidently,
members of the Chilean Library
Association were impressed by
Dr. White enough to request his
presence and expertise.
In describing what his work
involved, Dr. White said that it
"goes beyond how you work with
books
"Chile is a really interesting
place White said. "In terms of
its more European nature, kind of
Spain-Western-Europe look to it
than a traditional Latin American
look. The culture is a mix of Latin
and European. It's a very bustling
place. Santiago is surrounded by
mountains on all sides, so it's very
scenic. The people are extremely
welcoming, pleasant and easy tb
work with. It was a very pleasant
experience
Among all the places he vis-
ited, White noted that the San-
tiago Public Library was a tre-
mendous facility; about 250,000
square feet. That's bigger than
an average Super Wal-Mart, and
almost double or triple the size
of most U.S. libraries (including
Joyner).
It was here that Dr. White
suggested that they utilize a
patio located on the fourth floor
of the building, which offered a
scenic view of the city, for public-
stargazing.
"As I was touring libraries and
visiting with librarians, questions
would be posed said White. "I
would then go off and work with
that person, or they would give
me an invitation to please come
to their facility and work with the
staff or address the issue that they
were asking questions about
White worked with academic
library staff and directors on
defining their success in reporting
what they do. Generally speaking,
success is defined by academic
circulation, as well as by activities
they may hold or participate in.
With the internet and other elec-
tronic resources, these numbers
are going down. The question,
which he addressed, became how
to redefine success in the library
environment.
White was also requested by
the Chilean Ministry of Educa-
tion to work with Coodinadora
Biblioteca Escolares and her team
on a project to buildestablish a
learning resource center in all
of Chile's 13,000 public schools

International Education
Week underway at ECU
LISA URAM
STAFF WRITER
On Monday, the fifth annual
Celebration of Internationa Edu-
cation was held at the City Hotel
& Bistro. This years event was
given by Beth Eckstein, with the
Center for Economic Education
in the College of Business and Dr.
Carolyn Ledford, associate profes-
sor in the College of Education.
The focus this year was to
internationalize education through
teachers, concentrating on kin-
dergarten through fifth grade.
Those in attendance ranged
from ECU international students
and student interns to commu-
nity teachers and ECU faculty.
Eckstein, who also spoke at the
event, discussed ways which ele-
mentary teachers can incorporate
the importance of international
trade with their students through
interactive learning. Her focus
included examples of trade between
the United States and Brazil.
A wide variety of activi-
ties were used to demonstrate
the importance of interna-
tional perspectives and how to
incorporate it in the classroom.
"We are trying to develop
global understanding between stu-
dents and teachers said Dr. John
Swope, associate dean for the Col-
lege of Education, about this event.
In fact, only four percent of
American students go on to study
abroad in college. While the rest
of American students are left
learning about otler cultures
through American news outlets.
According to Rosina Chia,
assistant vice chancellor for Global
Academic Initiatives at ECU,
"These news outlets are unable
to give an unbiased world view"
Chia, along with Jami Lei-
bowitz, associate professor of
Anthropology spoke about the
Global Understanding course
that is offered at ECU. Currently
there are Hi institutions around
the world participating in this
course, which allows ECU stu-
dents to discuss a wide range
of topics with international stu-
dents through video conferencing.
"When we know so few stu-
dents can experience interna-
tional perspective, we bridge the
gap with this course said Chia.
The workshop ended with
presentations from international
students attending ECU from
Germany, Ukraine, Poland, China,
Bangladesh, Japan, Costa Rica,
Chile and the United Kingdom.
Each student gave perspective on
the country where they were raised
and how diverse our cultures are.
In the words of Carolyn Led-
ford, associate professor for the
College of Education, we should all
"think globally and act locally

BRIEFS
Police: Accused child molester
faked his own death
(AP) Georgia and Texas
authorities are searching for a
man they believe faked his own
death to avoid trial on charges he
molested his fiancee's 12-year-old
daughter.
A lawyer for Julian Dale Pip-
kins, 40, of Peachtree City, Ga
told a judge on Nov. 6 that his
client had drowned in a fishing
accident near Galveston, Texas,
days before his trial was sched-
uled.
But police say Pipkins' 16-
year-old son, who initially told
police that his father drowned
while the two of them were fish-
ing in Galveston Bay, has recanted
the story, and now says his father
made up the tale and is hiding from
authorities in north Texas.
Superior Court Judge Pas-
chal English Jr. issued a warrant
for the suspect's arrest shortly
after Liston reported the alleged
drow ning, based on the suspicious
disappearance.
"A lot of people have gone to
a lot of trouble because of this
Ballard said.
In March, Pipkins was arrested
after his fiancee flagged down
a police officer and told him she
caught Pipkins having sex with
her daughter in their Peachtree
City apartment.
He said Pipkins had been free
on a "substantial" bond and that
the terms of most bonds allow a
suspect to travel within the U.S.
but not outside the country.
Dignitaries gather to break
ground on King memorial
(AP) Friends and family of
the Kev. Martin Luther King Jr.
joined national leaders Monday on
a cold, wet field between the Lin-
coln and Jefferson memorials to
break ground for a national monu-
ment honoring the preacher from
Georgia whose legacy still rever-
berates throughout the world.
"It seems like only a few years
ago that I stood with Martin
Luther King Jr. a short distance
from here on the steps of the Lin-
coln Memorial said Democratic
Rep. John Lewis of Atlanta, refer-
ring to the civil rights pioneer's "I
Have a Dream" speech at the 1963
March on Washington. "He spoke
to the conscience of all of us
"What war has ever resulted
in positive, lasting peace?" asked
King's oldest child, Martin Luther
King III
The memorial will sit on four
acres along the Tidal Basin, fea-
turing stone carvings and a wall
of engraved quotes with water
flowing over them. It will be the
first to honor an African American
civilian on the Mall.
"I think it's about time; it's
appropriate. Martin Luther King,
I don't think, was for one race of
people. He was for all people
said Wilson Ross Jr a Vietnam
War veteran who traveled from
his home in Fayetteville, N.C to
attend the event.
Man Expertly Handles Shark
Attack
(KMTR) A 29-year-old
Canadian nian has narrowly
escaped what could have been a
fatal shark attack off the coast of
Maui, Hawaii.
The Honolulu Advertiser
reported Kyle Gruen of Vancou-
ver, British Columbia, was about
30 to 40 feet offshore Saturday
when a shark grabbed him, caus-
ing a large gouge above his knee
and wounds on the upper thigh.
Gruen used a technique he has
learned as a lifeguard to escape any
further damage from the shark's
jaws, pulling away and kicking it.
Gruen was taken to Maui Memo-
rial Medical Center where he was
treated.
Gruen arrived in Hawaii last
Friday to be the best man at a
college buddy's wedding, the
newspaper said.
It's a bad way to start a vaca-
tion, said Jeff Gruen, Kyle's brother
who was traveling with him. It's
bad luck, but it could have been a
lot worse. He's really lucky.
Driverless Truck Moves in
Circles
(KMTR) A pickup truck
went into reverse in a California
town when its driver got out to
inspect the load.
Police in Irvine had to use a
spike strip to bring the truck to a
stop, the Orange County Register
reported. The vehicle, a 1970 Ford
F-150, was moving backward in an
oval pattern.
"Thanks to the engineering of
that truck's front end, it just stayed
in a circle the whole time said
Police Lt. Rick Handfield.
The driver told police he
believed that cardboard loaded
into the back had come loose.
CHILE
continued from Al
EXCHANGE
continued from Al
of Chile's 13,000 public schools
by 2010 (coinciding with Chili's
bicentennial celebration).
The biggest challenge White
says he faced was the fact that he
does not speak Spanish. While
many Chileans spoke Knglish and
even though he had a translator,
the time for translation cut down
on time to work.
White hopes to brush up on
Spanish for his work in the future.
White's experience in Chile was, as
he described it, "a positive perspec-
tive on having the ability to get
things done. A lot of places that
you go to they can find a hundred
reasons you can't do something,
they found at least one reason to
do something"
After visiting all types of dif-
ferent libraries in a variety of set-
tings with a variety of capabilities
and resources, several points came
to mind. They're kind of summed
up by the philosophy of the direc-
tor of the San Tiago public library:
To believe in what was possible, to
dream of what was possible and to
not be afraid of the work that is
WHITE
required to bring it to reality.
"That if you had a passion for
what you were doing, and you
could em ision it and dream it, that
with a little sweat you can bring it
to reality. That anything was pos-
sible that way

This program allows you
to bring back with you not just
knowledge but memories and life
changing experiences. It gives you
a different perspective than what
is printed in textbooks or shown
in the media. It gives you a taste
of culture, first hand.
To participate in this program
there are requirements and an
application process. This program
requires that you have at least a
2.5 GPA (some programs require
a 2.75 GPA). You must also have
completed 30 credit hours, be a
full-time student, and if studying
a language other than English,
you must have four semesters of
college level instruction in that
language. The first step in the
application process is you must
speak with a faculty member that
is going to the country you wish
to study abroad. Next you must fill
out the Study Abroad Application.
This program including tuition
and fees, housing and meals, cost
approximately $5,381.50 for in-
state undergraduate students,
$10,638.50 for undergraduate
out-of-statestudents, $5,622.00
for in-state graduate students,
and $10,780.00 for graduate out-
of-state students.
The Study Abroad Program
is an opportunity for students to
leave the ideals they are accus-
tomed to an experience another
country's culture. It is easy to
appreciate life as you have always
known it but to experience some
one else's could change your per-
spective for a lifetime.

RANT OF THE DAY
Can we just skip to Thanksgiving break?
Breaking
our own
stereotypes
We all need to take a stand against
television's portrayal of life during
college
JESSICA DUNLOW
OPINION WRITER
Some students might describe college life an
academic struggle, filled with late night parties,
promiscuous sex and experimentation with drugs ,
a view that correlates with the way college age '
kids act in movies, TV shows and books.
Is this how we want to be represented?
We are the next generation. Why is it that
these risky behaviors enthrall us SO? It is obvious
that this is what we feel we are supposed to do
here. These are the "best years of our lives so
wouldn't we want to remember them?
Society's ideas of what college age kids do
for their four cherished years drive our media
factions. For instance, movies like Animal House
began this tradition of the "party hearty" col-
lege when it exploded in theaters. The Rules of
Attraction depicts students using drugs regularly,
skipping class and even getting drunk with their
own professors. Is there no sacred line between
reality and fiction? Movies and TV shows are
entertaining, that is their purpose.
TV shows like "The OC "One Tree Hill
even "Gilmore Girls which are geared toward
high school and college-aged girls, show col-
lege students and older high school students
participating in the behaviors they should avoid.
In reality, these risky behaviors, drug use, pro-
miscuous sex and faltering academically, directly
affect our futures.
Over-extensive drug use affects people men-
tally for the rest of their lives. Valuable memories
may become inaccessible because of the damaged
nerve endings and cells in the brain. According
to the National Institute on Alcoholism and Alco-
hol Abuse, 31 percent of college students qualify
as having an alcohol problem. This is due to the
rise in binge drinking and the widespread idea
that you cannot have fun unless you are drunk.
These behaviors lead to the academic struggle
that comes along with excessive partying. The
NIAAA states that 2.5 percent of students are
sinking academically directly due to alcohol
use. In these movies and TV shows, the risky
behaviors are reinforced by positive results in
their career fields and their lives that rarely
happen in reality.
The movie and TV society depicts girls ready
to have sex at the drop of a dime. If we want to
reduce this behavior on campus, why are we
allowing these high school girls and boys to
idolize the dramatic slut or the womanizing jerk?
The NIAAA states that about 400,000 students
between the ages of 1H and 24 have unprotected
sex. In addition, the rumor is that one in four
students at ECU has a sexually transmitted
disease. We have to defeat the stereotype.
It is our duty to change.vhat people think
and generalize about how college students act.
Participating in these activities is risky. KCU
is a prestigious university and we need to act
like it. There is a time and a place for this "risky
business and each day at KCU is a chance at
education.
We need to rise to the occasion and eliminate
the idea that we are a "party school Yes, it will
be difficult for the student body to take the ini-
tiative to change that stereotype. It is a common
part of today's common college society to party.
However, we must consider, is it because we want
to participate directly in these risky behaviors?
On the other hand, do college students partici-
pate solely because it is what the movies and TV
tell us to do?

do you think I should do?
Sincerely,
Heart Bleaker
Dear Heart Breaker,
Unfortunately, breaking up is hard to do. Since
you've been invested in this relationship for the last
two years, it probably isn't a good idea to simply walk
out without explanation. I say a good long talk is in
order. No one is going to want to have this discus-
sion, but it's a necessary evil. Begin by telling her
that you care about her and rcspec I her (and that you
always will), but there are some things concerning
your relationship that you need to make know n. The
most important thing is that you explain yourself as
completely and as honestly as possible Explain why
you want out (really it will save her many long

hours on the phone with her girlfriends wonder-
ing out loud what went wrong) and assure her that
she's still beautiful and worthy of being loved. Yes,
it sounds cheesy, but after this talk, she's probably
going to feel vulnerable, One way to break the ice
on the subject is to ask her how she's feeling about
your relationship, so you can gauge lur response and
have a better idea of what to say and how delicately
lo approach the situation She may tell you that she's
noticed a change Perhaps you two haven't had as
much physical contact, maybe the sparks have gone
out for her, too, and both of you have been too afraid
to say so. If you find out that she doesn't sense any-
thing is different and is still fully satisfied, parting
ways may nol be so difficult or painful, as long as
you're honest. It's unfair to you, too, lo be involved
in something that just doesn't "do it" for you. Remind
yourself (and her) that you will always have the best
of memories and that you don't necessarily have to
disappear entirely from her life; if you're up lor it,
you can still be friends after the dust settles. One of
the scariest things about breaking up (and a lot of
other aspects of life) is simply the change of having
someone by your side and then having to fly solo.

All dolled up
Barbie almost looks pale by
comparison
BRIDGET TODD
OPINION WRITER
My niece squeezes my pointer and middle finger
with her little hand in excitement, for weeks now, she
has been asking, no, begging me to take her to Target
and look at toys Santa might bring her.
I guess kids prepare lor the holiday season early.
She squeals, drops my hand and runs toward the dolls.
Tin gonna ask Santa for this she chirps, hug-
ging a Brat?, doll to her chest. I take the doll and
examine it. The doll's name is Cloe. She's a supposed
baby, part of the Bratz Babyz line, yet she's wearing a
pleated miniskirt and a tight-cropped shirt exposing
her midriff. Her bright red lips are puckered like a
supermodel's. She has big flirty eyes with long, curly
eyelashes. I,can't help but notice that for a baby, Cloe
is pretty dolled up.
As a kid, I could play with Barbies for hours, but
now I abhor their excessive make-up, perfect bodies
and lack of ethnic range. When I was young, there
was just fair blonde Barbie or Naomi Campbell-like
brown-skinned Barbie. Even still, while I don't think
Barbies are positive entities for girls to admire, she isn't
as awful as the Bratz dolls.
At least Barbie has jobs. Occupationally speaking,
the woman gets around - she has been a dentist, an
astronaut, a baseball player, a businesswoman, a doctor,
a ballerina, an ice skater and so forth. As a child, I would
make up elaborate plays wherein Barbie struggles to get
to the space station to go to Mars, while first finishing
her baseball game. The Bratz dolls don't do anything,
or at least anything approaching a career. They're sexy
and, according to the Bratz television show, they like to
spend time shopping for clothes and accessories.
And, despite Barbie's large plastic breast mounds,
she looks somewhat tasteful. She wears make-up, but
it is a far cry from the extreme whore make-up of the
Bratz dolls. It is much easier to picture Barbie working
in an office or going to the movies than prostituting
herself. Unfortunately, this is not the case for the Bratz
dolls, who often just wear panties, baby-tees and lip-
stick. Even worse, some of the Bratz dolls are supposed
to be babies. Isn't there something a little unsettling
about a sexy toddler? The sexualization of little girls is
dangerous. It blurs the sexual borders between adoles-
cents and children, which need to stay clear-cut.
As for my niece, I never thought I'd see the day that
I'd hope she'd yearn for a Barbie. Still, maybe she'll ask
Santa for one and then she can spend hours figuring
out how Barbie will finish her businesswoman work
before winning the World Series.

The newest form of student addiction
RYAN COBEY
OPINION WRITER
As college students, we commonly associate our
absences from class and failing grades to an exces-
sive amount of alcohol andor partying. It is, after
all, the stereotypical explanation society gives to
justify our misdeeds. However, we tend to ignore
other, newer influences in our lives that are just as
dangerous and addictive as alcohol.
You may he surprised to know that this highly
addictive drug 1 am speaking of is actually the Inter-
net. But how can the World Wide Web even be com-
pared to a mind-influencing drug such as alcohol?
The answer lies in the daily time we spend online.
When I roll out of bed in the morning, I instinc-
tively turn my computer on and check my e-mail,
before even taking a shower or brushing my teeth.
And usually, by the time I'm finished witlrmy morn-
ing computer routine. 1 have less than 10 minutes to
take a shower and make it to class before the Joyner
bell rings nine times. This is something that too
many of us are guilty of and just one reason out of
many that explains the seriousness of an Internet
addiction.
How about the long nights spent surfing the
Web until four in the morning as a distraction from
a paper you should be working on? Again, I'm just as
guilty of this as everyone else. After all, immersing
myself in the daunting task of finding the absolute
best background picture for my MySpace page is
much more intriguing than writing a four-page
paper on why French people are smelly and mean
Honestly, why even go meet with friends to see
a movie when you can all just download the same
movie and watch it in the comfort of your own
cubicle-sized room? The Internet is an addiction
because of its convenience. Stereotypically speak-
ing, Americans are some of the laziest people in the
world. If we can ship out our dirty laundry to be
washed or buy our groceries online, we will do it.
The same can be said for talking with friends; with
programs like AOL instant messenger, who needs
to meet up on campus and chat?
Don't get me wrong, I owe the majority of My
research project references to the Internet, as well
as many other school assignments, but because of
that I am completely dumbfounded when walking
into Joyner Library. If you gave me a book title to go
look up, I wouldn't have the slightest clue where to
start. That bothers me in a way. As a college student
1 should be able to at least know where to look in
order to find books in my university library, but 1
haven't the slightest clue as to what all the numbers
mean on the sides of the bookshelves - however I'm
pretty certain of what the letters mean.
We are now a nation that needs to be online just
as much as we need electricity. It is such a convenient
tool that we substitute things like reading, playing
sports, going to class and simply going outside for
it. The Internet may not impair your driving or
increase your blood-alcohol level, but it can surely
cause you to fail a class, and the constant inactivity
of sitting in front of a screen all day can hurt your
body just as much.

How to prepare your
car for winter weather
Be ready when cold
weather attacks
JENNY AYERS
STAFF WRITER
We all know that November
leads to some interesting changes
in the daily routine. You never
know what the weather is going
to have in store from one day to
the next so it's best to be prepared
on all levels, from your wardrobe
to your car
Perhaps you had forgotten
about the joys of driving in the
winter and were just going to go
about business as usual. I assure
you, there are several things you
don't want to go without doing
this winter
First of all, let's not forget
about our lovely friend, Mr Frost,
who likes to spontaneously visit in
the night If you're anything like
me, you leave in just enough time
to get where you need to be so the
last thing you want to do is be
scrounging around in your car for
something to defrost your wind-
shield with. As driving blindly
is not a sale option and CD cases
don't always do the trick, make sure
you equip your car with a sturdy
ice scraper soon because the cold
times are creeping quickly upon us.
Maybe that was a no-brainer
to you and you are already skepti-
cal as to where this is going, but
please, for your own safety, don't
stop reading just yet.
Assuming you don't want to
end up stranded on the side of
the road, especially in the already
freezing Ohio, you need to be pre-
pared for the worst. In the event
that your car should break down,
you need to have a couple of blan-
kets stowed away in the trunk so
you can keep warm.
Apart from blankets, you
should also already have a gas
can in your car just in case. Per-
haps you should also include a pile
of wood and matches, along with
graham crackers, niarshuiallows
and chocolate bars so that you may
make the most of whatever situa-
tion you find yourself in. Since you
may be dealing with fire, you will
also want to pack some bandages
and burn ointment. You can never
be too prepared.
Something you may not auto-
matically consider is windshield
safety. Any small dings in your
windshield can turn into large,
unfriendly and unsafe cracks in the
w inter due to a process know n as
thermal shock. Not only does this
weaken your windshield, making
it extremely unsafe in the event of
a collision, but it greatly increases
the cost of repair.
While repairing a small ding
costs around $80, a new wind-
shield will costs hundreds. So you
should have any imperfections
checked out before the cold really
sets in.
Be sure to check all your car's
fluids on a relatively regular basis.
Your oil should be changed every
.1,000 miles and as winter creeps
in, you should ensure that your
engine coolant is also diluted with
water as this prevents freezing and
provides great protection for the
cold weather.
Also, don't neglect to check
your windshield washer fluid and
make sure that it is not diluted
with water as, unlike engine cool-
ant, it will freeze when it hits the
air. Windshield washer fluid is
also very useful in melting ice on
your windshield if you weren't
prepared with that ice scraper we
talked about.
depending on when you go, Web
sites like expedia.com and trav-
elocity.com offer very reasonable
hotel rates. Also remember that
the more you split the ticket the
better it will be for you, so sign
up as many friends as you can. You
could also get a hotel just outside
of the city on the Metro line and
simply hop a train into D.C. for a
few bucks a day.
Once situated, you need to
know where it is you should go
for a good time in D.C. Obviously
there are the historical monu-
ments and memorials to visit for
a bit of U.S. history and photo
ops. Located within walking dis-
tance of the Washington monu-
ment are the Lincoln, Jefferson,
World War II, Korean War and
Vietnam memorials.
Of course the dose of history
doesn't stop with these marble
marvels, there are many free
museums around the city that
hold something for everyone. The
National Gallery of Art holds
pieces by Lichtanstein, Monet,
Seurat, Manet and Renoir. At the
Air and Space museum you can
find moon and space artifacts
and planes galore. You may also
want to check out the Native-
American museum, the city's
newest addition.
For those who are not overly
weak at heart, the Holocaust
museum is very moving and takes
about three hours to get com-
pletely through. When you first
arrive, you are given a "passport"
which describes a Jewish person
who experienced the Holocaust.
Through the various stages of
the museum you read more and
more information about the person
described and eventually discover
whether or not they survived. It's
hard to leave the place with a dry
eye, so go light on the makeup and
bring some tissues.
After you've gotten your fill
of historical sites, there is still
plenty to do in the city. There
are tasty restaurants at every turn
and many of these are actually
quite affordable. If you're in the
mood for a sandwich, you should
check out Foggy Bottom Pub in
Foggy Bottom near the George
Washington University. There's
something on the menu for every-
one and everything is very filling
and affordable at around six dol-
lars a meal.
Alfo in Foggy Bottom is Thai
Place, a relatively cheap and
definitely yummy Thai restau-
rant. Cosi (think Panera, but not),
Potbelly's and California Pizza
Kitchen are all quick, cheap stops
that can be found in various spots
around the city. If you're willing
to splurge on at least one meal,
Nora Asia is an excellent fine
dining establishment located in
Dupont Circle.
Great shopping is also plenti-
ful in D.C, specifically in George-
town. Here you can find practi-
cally any store you desire and then
some. Apart from the typical Gap
and Abercrombie stores, there
are less common retailers such
as H&M and Urban Outfitters as
well as other boutiques and spe-
cialty shops. Whether you're look-
ing for souvenirs for the family or
some fresh duds for your ward-

Thanksgiving is getting closer
and closer, and soon the holiday
season will be in full swing,
leaving many people avoiding the
busy malls and running to their
computers to buy gifts for their
friends and family.
As college students, many
of us are left to do our shopping
online simply because we have no
time between last minute home-
work and final exams to get to the
mall and tight the crowd for a few
gifts that we can barely afford.
So, this Christmas season, g
why not shop easily, while doing I
the world a favor too? I'm sure H
o
some of you may be confused o;
now, so this may clear up a few
things.
Yahoo has recently created a new
search engine, just like regular Yahoo or
Google, except for the fact that every time
someone types in something to search, money is
donated to whatever charity they decide to sponsor.
The search doesn't cost the user anything,
no e-mail address is required, and it isn't all a
big scam to con people out of money. The search
engine, called GoodSearch, works like any other
search site, while adding a good way for people to
show their support for a specific charity, and donate
money, without any even coming out of their pocket.
Search engine advertisers, such as Google.com,
make over 6 billion dollars each year. Internet entre-
preneurs Kev and JJ Ramberg saw how much money
these companies were making, and put their heads
together to figure out a w ay that even a tiny frac-
tion of that money could go to make
the world a better place.
Their keen eye for creativ-
ity combined with business
savvy spawned GoodSearch;
the Ramberg's teamed
up with Yahoo to create a
search engine where over 50
percent of its revenue could
be donated to charity, help-
ing people that probably have
never searched the internet
before. After all is said and
done, each search gives about
a penny toward the user's
pick of any charity.
During the Christmas
season most teenagers, col-
lege students, parents and
people of all ages spend a
ittle time online to search
for the perfect presents
for their loved ones.

For anyone who has never

ass'ociated with Moe's Southwest

atmosphere splashed with festive
colors, you may be missing the

The burrito can be consid-

some margaritas. They have weird
name for the items on the menu
such as quotes from the television
show "Seinfeld My favorite thing
to order from Moe's was the Joey
bag of Donuts. It's a burrito. When
I worked there it was like work-
ing at McDonalds but Mexican.
Instead of doing the French fries,
we did the chips
Moe's makes more than just
burritos. They also have nachos,
tacos, quesadillas, salads, fajitas
and other various southwestern
foods. For those who are vegetar-
ians they can make their food with
the option of excluding meats
because they prepare the food
right in front of the customer.
Sophomore criminal justice
major, Rachel King talked of her
experiences at Moe's, "The triple
Lindy is the best burrito I've
ever eaten, in my life. They put
so much food in it, you can't even
eat the whole thing in one sitting.
And when you're in college, you
need your food to last. Plus their
Kaiser salsa rocks. It's also made
fresh in front of you. Its delicious.
The employees are always saying
Hey, welcome to Moe's' to every
person who walks in. That makes
me so happy because they have to
interact with you
The menu is a pop culture
bonanza of Moe's favorite things.
Although some may consider
Moe's pricey, the amount of food
included is overwhelming. If
you're looking for a hearty meal
that could last for more than one
sitting, Moe's is the place to go.

Platinum is a club in Chinatown

DONATION

how fast each of those pennies
would add up. Just imagine
how many lives each of those
pennies could change.
There are currently over
20.000 nonprofit organizations and
charities benefiting from Yahoo's
new search engine, and more
than 100 charities and schools are
being registered on a daily basis
Charities that users can choose
from include things like Save
Darfur Coalition, the Families of
Muscular Atrophy and the Cystic
Fibrosis Foundation, which has
currently received over SI,500
of revenue simply t'rom everyday
people using GoodSearch as their
search engine for everyday uses.
The number of people and the
amount of money being raised
for all different sorts of charities
continues to rise each day
For example, state charities,
such as The Elephant Sanctuary
in Tennessee have raised more
than SI.800 in only the first few
months of being a part of the
site. This charity helps fund the
country's largest habitat refuge ,
for endangered elephants
Although it is for a good cause,
many users have shown concern
regarding the quality of their
searches through GoodSearch com-
pared to more popular engines such
as Google. However, since Good-
Search is powered through Yahoo,
high quality results are guaranteed
As the Christmas season
approaches, many of us want to
give, but as college students it's
hard to find the time or money. So
heres your answer: GoodSearch
It's quite possibly the easiest w ay to
get things done while giving back to

(AP) KCU was picked in the
preseason to finish last, yet the
Pirates are on a surprising ascent
to the top of Conference USA's
Last Division.
Defense is a big reason why the
I'irates have won four straight and
are chasing a berth in the league's
championship game.
"Defensively, I think this

Monday "They're getting better

Twice in last three games,
the Pirates have posted their best

Florida was held to 235 yards.
The Pirates slowed some of the

a crawl during the stretch. Mar-
shall running back Ahmad Brad-
sliaw was held to 26 yards on 10
i ai nes in the team's last meeting,
marking the lowest output of the
season for C-USA's leading rusher.
Prior to that, KCU held Central

HUSHING
Volleyball set for
conference tournament
BENJAMIN LLOYD
STAFF WRITER
Chris Rushing has made an
impression on the volleyball program
during his short stint as KCU's head
coach. That's not a claim many vol-
leyball coaches in school history can
boast. Now he has a chance to claim
a larger stake in Pirate volleyball
lore with a potential run deep into
the conference tournament.
Rustling's squad earned a No.
6 seed, their second straight trip
to the Conference USA Champi-
onships in Houston, which begins
Thursday and ends on Nov. 19.
The Pirates (19-11, 10-6 C-
USA) will face No. II seeded
UTEP in the opening round
Thursday, Nov. 16 at 8 p.m.
Last season, the Pirates were
just happy to make it to the post-
season. The .1-0 sweep of Southern
Miss in '2005 was KCU's first-ever
win in the conference tourney.
Now, KCU wants more.
The Miners defeated ECU
3-0 in the second round of the
tournament last season, ending
the Pirates' season. UTEP swept
the Pirates earlier this season in
Greenville, as the Miners lead the
all-time series '2-1.
The Pirates feel good about
their chances, ending the year
winning nine of their final 11
matches, including a sweep of
the No. s seed Memphis, who the
Pirates would face in the second
round should they advance.
Another first-round tourna-
ment win gives the Pirates his
fourth 80-win season in school
history. It would be Rustling's
second in as many years.
Rushing became KCU's 10th
volleyball coach in the team's history,
taking over for Colleen Munson who
took the head coaching job at West-
ern Michigan. Munson, who guided
ECU to the C-USA tournament
twice (2001 and 2004) also took
assistant Ryan Manning with her.
Nearly a month and a half
later, Rushing was hired. Ile began
his career at Brigham Young
University where he played for
four years (1986, 1989-91). He
played as an outside hitter on a
team that won the NCAA national
championship.
In 1991, Rushing got his first
collegiate coaching experience when
he was hired as an assistant coach at
Utah Valley State College in Orem,
Utah. After only a year. Rushing
went back to his alma mater to coach
his only men's team.
Rushing was an assistant
coach at BYU from 1992-94,
where the Cougars were ranked
No. 8, No. 6 and No. 2 nationally
while he was on the staff.
In 1994, Rushing got his first
chance at being a head coach.
From 1994-95, Rushing served
as head coach for Dixie College in
St. George, Utah. In two seasons
for Dixie College, Rushing led his
team to a 47-27 record and the
first winning season in six years.
In 1996-97, Rushing took a job
as assistant coach on a women's
volleyball team for Arkansas State
Arkansas State went 45-21 in the
next two seasons in the school "s first
two seasons at the Division I level.
The assistant coach job at
Arkansas State propelled Rush-
ing to be hired at the University
of Tennessee-Martin from 1997-
2004. Rushing led the Skyhawks
to two Ohio Valley Conference
regular season championships,
one OVC tournament champion-
ship and the schools first NCAA
tournament appearance. "During
Rushing seven years at UT
Martin the school record was 110-
99. Rushing earned OVC Coach
of the Year twice and coached 13
All-OVC players including one
Academic All-American.
With a lack of winning tra-
dition, Rushing guided mostly
Munson's recruits to a 20-11
season, which was just the third
season 20-win season in school
history. His win percentage for
last season was .645, which puts
him third all-time in single season
win percentage at ECU.

Davis hiring
brings end to
coaching search
(AP) The uncertainty is
finally gone for North Carolina.
Butch Davis will be the next coach
of the Tar Heels.
North Carolina (1-9) hasn't had
a winning season since 2001 and
supporters are hoping Davis can pull
ofT the same kind of turnaround he
led in Miami, taking a team facing
NCAA sanctions to the brink of a
national championship within five
years.
Davis was a longtime under-
study of Jimmy Johnson's with
Oklahoma State, Miami and the
Dallas Cowboys before getting his
first head coaching job with the
Hurricanes in 1995.
"Butch Davis is one of the best
coaches I ever had work for me
Johnson said Tuesday.
Davis coached Miami until
2000, going 51-20 before taking
a job with the Cleveland Browns
and leaving behind the players with
whom Larry Coker won the national
title in 2001. He went 24-55 in Cleve-
land before resigning in 2004 and
has worked the past two seasons in
broadcasting.
"He is intelligent, hardworking,
and he understands what it takes to be
a champion Johnson said. "With his
outstanding recruiting ability, he's
a great choice for North Carolina
But quarterback Cam Sexton
would prefer to focus on the present,
not the future.
"Obviously, you've got to be
excited, but we're still working
on this year Sexton said after
practice Tuesday night. "We're
1-9, so beating (North Carolina)
State and Duke is very important.
Maybe outside the program, they
aren't important games, but for us,
to get two wins against in-state
schools we both hate, that's going
to be big. I'd rather talk about
(Davis) when we get finished up
Athletic director Dick Baddour
said Davis was his top choice to
replace Bunting, who was fired Oct.
22 after the Tar Heels were shut
out at Virginia. Bunting will coach
the final two games of the season
before handing Davis the program.
"There are several pieces of our
program that are on solid footing,
including our team's academic per-
formance, our current recruiting
class and the fact that we redshirted
almost this entire class Bunting
said Tuesday at his weekly news con-
ference. "So I think he'll be inherit-
ing some good things. He's got some
work to do, and I wish him well
Despite win, Panthers still not hitting stride
Steve Smith hopes to get in-sync with Quarterback Jake Delhomme and make a push towards the playoffs
(AP) When Steve Smith
first leaned over a garbage
can to vomit early in the third
quarter Monday night, a lot of
Carolina Panthers fans may have
wanted to join him.
The Panthers looked sick,
unable to run, unable to convert
third downs and turning over
the ball at key times.
Smith fought through his
bout with the flu to catch the
decisive touchdown pass in
the fourth quarter, though,
and Carolina took advan-
tage of four Tampa Bay turn-
overs to pull out a 24-10 win.
But after a first half when
Carolina generated just 98 yards,
three first downs and no points,
the Panthers (5-4) weren't cel-
ebrating in their locker room
early Tuesday morning.
"What we've been doing, we
don't hold ourselves to those
type of standards defensive
tackle Kris Jenkins said. "We
have higher expectations here
and what we've been doing over
the past eight games hasn't
been cutting it. I actually like
the mood in the locker room
The good thing for Carolina
is its rivals in the NFC South are
also struggling. The Panthers
are tied with Atlanta for second
place in the division, just a game
behind first-place New Orleans.
Both teams lost last Sunday.
"We're right in the thick of
things said veteran safety Mike
Minter, who recovered one of
Tampa Bay's second-half fumbles.
But whether the Panthers
turned around a struggling
offense with 24 second-half
points or just took advantage
of Tampa Bay's four turnovers
in five possessions remains a
question.
"Our defense kept us in the
game in the first half. We had
some struggles offensively
coach John Fox said. "We
made some adjustments and
got a little better organized
Those adjustments included
nearly abandoning the running
game. DeShaun Foster had 48
yards on 18 carries. DeAngelo
Williams, in his first game
back after a high ankle sprain,
managed only 19 yards on seven
carries. Fullback Brad Hoover
scored the Panthers' lone rush-
ing touchdown.
Carolina ranks 28th out of 32
teams in rushing with 92 yards
per game.
The Panthers were able to
get the passing game going in
the second half. Smith, despite
being ill, had eight catches for
149 yards and Keyshawn John-
son caught the go-ahead touch-
down pass in the third quarter.
"Our coaches did a good job
recognizing what it was we could
take advantage of in the passing
game Johnson said. "We were
able to pick them apart down the
field so everybody is happy
The defense was the bright
spot. Julius Peppers, after going
two games without a sack, had
three and recovered a fumble
by frazzled Buccaneers rookie
quarterback Bruce Gradkowski.
Ken Lucas and Shaun Williams
had interceptions, and linebacker
Chris Draft forced a fumble.
"We got some pressure on
them said Peppers, who took
over the NFL lead with 11 sacks.
"The D-line helped me out a
little bit. I'll take those three. I'm
happy to get them and hopefully
I can get three next week, too
The Panthers also finished
strong. After blowing three
fourth-quarter leads in the
first eight weeks, the Pan-
thers outscored the Bucca-
neers 24-3 in the second half.
"You like to start fast, but
it's the way you finish and we
finished strong defensive end
Mike Rucker said. "That's what
we're going to take out of this
game. We hadn't played in two
weeks, so you might have a little
rust on you. But you knock that
off, come out the second half and
play some ball
U.S. Cellular" gets me so I can always get the score.
