black history events.
C :arter G. Woodson began Negro 11 istory Weeki n the 1920s because he was
dissatisfied with the recognition African- Americans received in history books.
Today, the celebration has extended to a month-
long observance of black history throughout February.
"The contributions of African Americans to this country lie at the core
i of its existence and the void of information. And
� "�HiStOn sometimes latk ol respect for it is why this time of
V �r�,lu' I the year is important said l.athan Turner, assistant
vice-chancellor at the Ledonia Wright Center.
February provides an opportunity to learn about
and appreciate contributions African Americans have
made to our history.
Turner said American history isn't complete
until each segment of society's accomplishments are known. Students
and organizations all over campus are taking part in spreading awareness
throughout ECU.
There will be events throughout the month sponsored by Ledonia
Wright Cultural Center and the Black Student Union, the NAACI ECU
Gospel Choir, National l'an-1 lellenicCouncil and the Intercultural Student
Films, speakers and poets will all make apcarances on campus through-
out the month.
"Students who may want to be involved can contact the Cultural Center,
and we will put them in touch with the appropriate student representative
for each event Turner said.

Overheated wire sparks
weekend fire in Aycock
Leo Jenkins Cancer Center unveils new technology
Fire department, ECU
police respond to call
The Greenville Fire Depart-
ment and ECU police were
called to Aycock residence hall
shortly after noon on Saturday
when a fire was reported as
the result of an overheated
wire igniting a mattress in a
resident's room.
Curtis Hayes, accredi-
tation officer of the ECU
police department, said when
police arrived at the scene, the
fire caused part of the second
floor to become engulfed
in smoke, and the Greenville
fire department was contacted
to extinguish the fire.
The ECU police con-
tacted Johnny Umphlet, SBI
agent and former ECU police
officer, to determine if the
fire was the result of arson.
Hayes said it is stan-
dard procedure for the
ECU Police Department
to take measures to investigate if
there is any criminal activity.
Waz Miller, interim
director of housing, said there
was no evidence indicating
any foul play was associated
with the fire.
"The SBI findings
indicated it started due
to the cord of an alarm clock
which was plugged directly
into the wall. It was
balled up and was near

According to Miller,

The Brody School of Medicine's linear accelerator, valued at $1.9 million,
provides more effective cancer treatment than traditional therapy.
" Linear accelerator device
is one of six in country
The Leo Jenkins Cancer Center
introduced the Prtmatom Linear
Accelerator, the latest technology
in cancer radiation treatment, in a
dedication ceremony
last week.
Valued at $1.9
million, the linear
accelerator is a device
that pinpoints where
radiation is needed in
a cancer patient.
The region sur-
rounding the tumor
is scanned with 3-D
technology allowing lasers to trace
the exact location of the tumor.
The linear accelerator at the
Leo Jenkins Cancer Center is only
one of six in use across the nation
see DEDICATION page A3

One out of every four
people will be diagnosed
with cancer during their

said before the budget's release
Military spending would be boosted
by 7 percent, but that does not

Bush sending Congress
$2.4 trillion budget plan with
military, homeland security
WASHINGTON (AP) - President
Bush is sending Congress a $2.4
trillion election-year budget that
provides big increases to the
military and homeland security
while squeezing scores of
other programs in an effort
to cut a deficit projected
to top a half-trillion dollars this
Bush's spending plan, contained
in a four-volume set of documents
to be released Monday, will set off
an intense battle in Congress and
on the campaign trail as Democrats
and Republicans try to convince
voters that their economic
prescription for the country is the
right one.
The president's budget would make
his tax cuts permanent, while many
of the Democrats campaigning for
his job are seeking to roll back
the tax relief, at least for the
wealthiest Americans, as a way to
get deficits under control

Abused pregnant women receive help from grant
ECU professor seeks
to reduce violence
Pregnant women in
eastern Northarolina will
now be examined more closely
for abuse during their prena-
tal visits thanks to a $10,000
grant and the work of an ECU
Sheila Hunch, assistant
social work prolessor, received
the grant as an award to assist
the state's northeastern Baby
l.ove I'lus program last year. The
project builds on the existing
Baby Love program, the state's
prenatal i are program for expect-
ant mothers in need of financial
"The goal is to help women
havchealthy babies said Sheila
"Northarolina has one of
the highest infant mortality rates
in the nation
The project includes Hali-
fax, Hertford, Gates, Nash and
Northampton counties. All five
counties experience poverty
levels and measures of health
that are among the worst in the
state which could be a reason
why the area's infant mortal-
ity rate (deaths per 1,000 live
births) is also among the worst
in the state.
During 1998-2000, the
region had an infant mortality
rate of 13.1 percent compared to
the state's rate of 9.2 percent.
The grant focuses on caring
for victims of domestic abuse and
delivering a healthy baby.
"Until recently, screening
for intimate partner violence of
pregnant women in the area was
very inconsistent Bunch said.
"Health officials didn't do
enough for them
After laying the ground-
work for the project in the
first year, Bunch will continue
to train public health officials
in the area to recognize domes-
tic violence on pregnant women
during prenatal screenings.
She will coordinate full
day training programs
with the help of domestic vio-
lence shelters, health depart-
ments and the UNC. School of
Public Health.
"We're showing these people
what to look for and what ques-
tions to ask Bunch said.
Bunch is personally
reaching out to the communities
to help stop domestic violence.
She will work with the rural
region's churches to develop
domestic abuse awareness pro-
"Often in very rural areas
churches are the pulse of the
community Bunch said.
"There will be training
programs with members of the
church to help them identify the
signs of abuse
Bunch said she hopes that
spreading more information
about domestic violence against
pregnant women and teach-
ing people how to spot it, will
encourage victims to break the
silence that often accompanies
"The program is beginning to
do what it was intended to do
Bunch said.
"I'm very excited about
the opportunity to make
a difference

Our View
Preceding the Super Bowl this past Sunday, there was one
complaint on almost everyone's lips.
There weren't any stars in the game this year and Super
Sunday had no buzz. It's true, there wasn't a Deion Sanders
or a Peyton Manning or a Donovan McNabb.
But remind me, where were they? At home watching the
game. Ask them if they care about having star power but
were sitting on the couch watching a game that every man
dreams of playing in.
I admit, there was so little star power that the coach of the
Patriots, Bill Belichick, was the most talked about participant
in the game and he didn't play a down.
However, the game proved that stars are made on the big
stage not in a hype machine.
Every football fan in America now knows the name of Pan-
thers quarterback Jake Delhomme, and maybe even half of
them will be able to correctly pronounce it now.
Both Delhomme and Patriots quarterback Tom Brady put up
an offensive show on Sunday to be remembered. Both threw
for three touchdowns and over 300 yards apiece.
The players who hauled in some of those passes also played
like stars. Mushin Muhammad caught the longest touchdown
pass in Super Bowl history (85 yards) in the fourth quarter
with his team trailing. Deion Branch hauled in 10 receptions
for 140 yards and a score for the Pats, continually keeping
New England drives alive.
Patriots Kicker Adam Vinatieri kicked a game winner with just
seconds on the clock to deliver the game to New England,
marking yet another game-winning kick, his second to win
a Super Bowl.
Players don't make the game important; the games make
players important.
That is the best thing about the NFL. The league stands on
its own because of the tradition that is NFL Sunday.
The Super Bowl did not develop into a de facto national holi-
day because of famous players of the past like "Broadway-
Joe Namath. Super Sunday was the catalyst for Namth's
nickname after he and his Jets knocked off the colts in
Super Bowl III.
He, and others like him (Joe Montana, Terry Bradshaw)
became stars because they performed on the biggest stage
when it counted.
Primetime stars don't make the Super Bowl, the Super Bowl
makes primetime stars.

End Of halftime ShOW What CBS doesn't want you
disgraces Super Bow! to see during the Super Bowl
Jackson, Timberlake's
performace simply
too much to bare
When Janet Jackson stepped
on stage for the halftime show in
Super Bowl XXXVIII, I was antici-
pating some Rood music, hot dance
moves and gyrating hips.
I got all of those, which is quite
nice. Jackson is a very attractive
woman - I don't think any male
in the country minds seeing her on
stage shaking her tailfeather.
However, I didn't expect to see
her right breast exposed at the end
of the number.
What Jackson and Timherlake
did is not just wrong because it
could get CBS in a ton of trouble,
hut it's degrading.
I know this is considered enter-
tainment in this modem day, hut
shouldn't the line he drawn
somewhere between indecency
and entertainment?
Britney Spears kissing
Madonna was a little out there,
hut hey, there was no nudity, and
it was certainly a novel idea. But
this is going too far.
We're talking about the big-
gest national sporting event of
every year - more than ISO mil-
lion people watching it from their
homes and even more watching at
the game and elsewhere and
this great entertainer and at least
somewhat classy woman decides t.
get almost half-naked on stage.
I understand the halftime
show is about entertainment and
adding a little something to the
game that's outside the context ot
sports, hut this is ridiculous.
When did it stop being degrad-
ing for a woman or man to bare
him or herself in front of the
public eye?
I'm all lor skimps clothing
or wearing what you want - by
all means, feel liberated if need
be - I don't complain when 1 see
J-I.o in a thong. But practically
stripping in front of ISO million
people is completely uncalled
Especially al an event where
the focus of the night is a foot-
hall game!
I think society needs lo take
a little time to look at itsell and
wonder if we have our values
in the right place. It seems like
everywhere you go, advertise-
ments and anything that needs
lo he sold is getting a message
across that appeals lo having
your head in the gutter.
Although some of these aie
hilarious, then' should be a line
between humor and degrada-
tion, not only lo the individual
hut also to our culture as a
Entertainment is all good
and well, I'm all for a great
football game with some funny
commercials and some bumpin'
and grindin'in between. Bui let's
try to keep things in perspective
from now on, instead of taking
them out.
"Although I've decided to retire, I still have
a lot to contribute to the game
(KRT)�For many Ameri-
cans, the commercials that air
during the Super Bowl have
become as appealing a part of
the spec tacle as the action on
the gridiron.
But this year, viewers won't
get to see what may have been
the best ads submitted to CBS
for the big game.
CBS canned a 30-second
spol sponsored by the lib-
eral online activist group
The commercial, which won
a celebrity-judged competition
for the honorol being MoveOn's
Super Bowl ad, depicts children
performing a variety of blue-
colla.r jobs � washing dishes,
collecting garbage, working on
an assembly line.
The tagline near the end
of the commercial asks,
"liuess who's going to pay off
President Bush's SI trillion
The network also spiked
a commercial submitted
by People for the Ethical
Treatment of Animals. That
ad featured scantily clad
women and suggested that
meat-eating might contribute
to impotence.
Of course, CBS has no
problems with commercials
that objectify women or that
are about impotence.
You11 see many such
commercials during the Super
What makes both the
PETA and MoveOn spots
unacceptable, says CBS,
is that they're advocacy
advertising. But the network
will be airing an ad that shows,
according to,
what would happen if "other
types of manufacturers made
products similar to tobacco,
like ice cream bars embedded
with glass shards
Thai sounds a lot like an
advocacy commercial to me.
The difference, CBS argues,
is that anti-smoking ads are
non-controvetslal because
everyone agrees smoking is
bad lor you.
Bui doesn't everyone agree
that massive budget deficits
are bad, too? Don't reputable
economists agree that they
pose long-term threats to the
Isn't there bipartisan sup-
port for dealing with the
exploding deficits? And didn't
the current fiscal mess begin
after President Bush look office
and pushed through massive
tax CUts7
II there's a controversial
aspect to the MoveOn corn-
no i c ial, it may be that it
downplays the magnitude of
the looming debt crisis.
According to the Congres-
sional Budget Office's most
recent estimates, the deficits
from the Bush years could wind
up totaling a lot more than $1
I en Fox's Bill O'Reilly
couldn't see any problem with
the MoveOn ad.
"I was surprised that CBS
turned this down. It's not
offensive, makes a legitimate
point politically said the
conservative television com-
CBS seems to move the bar
that it uses for determining
what's controversial.
Last year during the Super
Bowl, the network aired White
House ads linking drug use to
support for international ter-
rorism � a claim that certainly
generated a fair amount of
During Sunday's
championship game,
CBS will air White House
commercials promoting
anti-drug efforts.
But as innocuous as the ads
may seem, some of the Bush
administration's tactics in
fighting the drug war are noth-
ing if not controversial � just
ask Supreme Court justices
Stephen Breyer, Anthony Ken-
nedy and William Rehnquist,
who loath the White
House's zealous support of
mandatory-sentencing laws.
MoveOn and Its support-
ers believe there's something
fishy about CBS' vetting of
They point out that
the Republican-controlled
(longress, after a veto threat by
Bush, recently approved loos-
ening of an ownership cap that
sets limits on the total national
TV audience any one network
can reach.
The online group cites
Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz
who said CBS and Fox would
have had to sell stations
they'd already purchased had
Congress, at the behest of
the White House, not raised
the cap from 35 percent to 39
percent of all households.
"Why did they pick 39
percent?" MoveOn quotes
McCain as asking rhetorically
on the Senate floor. "So these
two conglomerates could be
It's true that CBS and Fox
lobbied heavily for the rule
It's also true, as the Center
for Responsive Politics has
documented, that of the
nearly $14,000 in soft money
i oni i ihut ions CBS made
during the 2000 election
cycle, 98 percent of it went to
the Republican Party.
MoveOn, on the other
hand, does not enjoy such
warm relations with CBS;
in fact, it helped organize
grass-roots opposition to
increasing the network
ownership cap.
It's quite possible that
MoveOn wasn't really a victim
of political payback.
It could just be that CBS'
interpretation of its own stan-
dards are a little shaky.
Nevertheless, MoveOn
raises some important big-
picture questions.
To wit: Why do we let a
few corporations control the
airwaves, which, after all,
belong to us, the public?
Why do we allow big money
to continue to play such a
huge role in our political
And, last but not
least, could there be a
relationship between these two

New doctoral opportuni-
ties In Medical Family Therapy,

and Administration will be
available to ECU students in
fall 2005.
The UNC Board of Gov-
ernors approved the two
programs in early January.
Students in the Medical

will collaborate with health
care providers and families to
resolve broad issues inher-
ent with acute and chronic
illness, said Cynthia Johnson,

Johnson said along with
a master's in marriage and
family therapy or a related
discipline, applicants must
also have an acceptable
performance on the ORE, a
cumulative GPA of 3.5 on a
4.0 scale in graduate work, a
sample of scholarly writing,
a statement of purpose and a
personal interview with the
program faculty.
"We anticipate accept-
ing applications beginning
fall 2004 for the first
class of students said

As college students we should

to reap the benefits of - a col-
lege education. However, as the
Tunnel of Oppression pointed
out, only 8 percent of the world's
population has a college educa-

many harrowing facts and sta-
tistics highlighted during the
event, which sought to elucidate
the horrors of the world to which
most of us are oblivious.
Students were overwhelmed
and awed by the presentation of
the funnel of Oppression.

biology major.
"It has proven to be power-

Five themed rooms were
set up III the great rooms of
Mendenhall, each with a dif-
ferent atmosphere of hate or
prejudice encountered in the
daily lives of many people.
Many rooms featured actors
and skits to emphasize the ste-
reotypes endured by many sects
of people.
The first room Oil the tour
was the siism room. This room
portrayed all the ridicule that
overweight people go through
everyday. Posters showing the
recommended weights for age
groups and heights, the horrors
of plastic surgery gone wrong and
people yelling out the common,
hurtful names overweight people
are often called served as remind-
ers of how tough it is to be a larger
person In our health obsessed
society. Groups were given a taste
of their own medicine when they
were lined up and taunted for ail
of their flaws.
The tour then proceeded to
the socioeconomic status room.
Four actors roamed around posing
as homeless people - begging for
money, asking for cigarettes and
asking for the signs in the room
to be read to them. The room also
had many posters that showed in
many countries hunger, home-
lessness and income are not just
problems, but epidemics.
"We want people to think of
how socioeconomic status affects

said Ryan Winget, coordinator
of Jones Hall and actor in the
socioeconomic status room.
The third room spotlighted
the atrocities that Native
Americans have endured from
the slaughters by Christopher
Columbus and the Conquis-
tadors, massacres ,such as the
Battle of Wounded Knee, and
the continued impoverishment
of many Native Americans and
"A lot of the stuff I'd been

A sign on the wall in the room
clearly illustrated this point How
many of your teachers taught that
the Spanish used nursing infants
as dog food?
The tour continued on to
the black vision room where the
continued struggle of African-
Americans against racism was
displayed. A skit portrayed a
black student who knew all the
answers to his homework ques-
tions, but his teacher refused
to call him on him because of
his race. The student, enraged,
got up and explained this and
threw his chair in disgust as he
left the classroom. Another skit
illustrated that we have many
untrue stereotypes of black
people. Two roommates, one
black and one white, were talking

Super Bowl XXXVIII
goes down to the wire
After everyone's talk of the
Super Bowl having no big stars
and no buz this year, Super Bowl
Sunday ended up featuring one
of the best NP1. championship
games in recent history.
The New Kngland Patriots
came out on top, defeating the
Carolina Panthers 32-29 on
a game-winning field goal by
Adam Vinatieri with four seconds
left on the clock.
Vinatlerl missed from 31
yards earlier in the game and
had another blocked. His only
four misses in indoor stadiums
prior to the 41-yard winner had
all come at Reliant Stadium. Head
Coach Bill Belichick praised his
kicker after the win.
The game in Houston broke
two Super Bowl records. One
for the two teams being score-
less for the first 27 minutes
and the other for the longest
passing touchdown. That play
came credit to the Panthers'Jake
Delhomme hooking up with
Mushin Muhammad for an 85-
yard touchdown togive Carolina
their first lead of the game in the
fourth quarter.
Ironically, plays like that were
part of the story of the game.
Carolina took the role of making
big, quick strike plays while New
England's scoring ability, in at
least the last part of the first half,
came Oil long drives established
mainly by the run.
The first score came from
New Kngland as Tom Brady
threw a touchdown pass to wide
out Deion Branch, capitalizing on
the first turnover of the game by
Carolina. Brady finished the
game 32-Of-48 for 354 yards,
three touchdowns and one
interception while also claim-
ing the MVP title. Branch, his
main target of the night, ended
the game with 10 receptions for
143 yards and one score. The
touchdown came with more
than three minutes left in the
half and Carolina responded in
a huge way when they got the
hall off the kickoff.
Though they were penalized
after the kickoff and started the
drive from their own five-yard
line, the Panthers drove down
the field on eight plays in only
1:58; a very typical drive for the
Patriots, not the Panthers.
Jake Delhomme, who com-
pleted l6-of-33 passes for 323
v,inls and three touchdowns,
New England's Walter (13) and Fauria (88) jump on kicker Vinatieri (4) as they celebrate his
game-winning field goal in the final seconds of the Patriots 32-29 victory over the Panthers.
capped the drive off with a 39-
yard touchdown pass to wide
receiver Steve Smith to tie the
game up 7-7 with little more
than a minute left. However, the
half wasn't over just yet.
New Kngland got the ball back
with 59 seconds left and drove 78
yards on six plays in only 41 sec-
onds. Brady and Branch hooked
up once again, this time for an
enormous 52-yard gain from the
Patriots' own 34-yard line and
then took only two more plays to
score. Brady, one of the best play
action quarterbacks in the league,
faked to Antowain Smith on the
five-yard line and threw it up to
David liivens who made a great
catch in the hack of the end zone.
The score put the Patriots up 14-7
with only 18 seconds left.
Bill Belichick then made per-
haps one of his worst decisions
all season by squib kicking to the
Panthers who advanced the ball
to their own 47. After a 21-yard
run by Stephen Davis, kicker
John Kasay split the uprights
with a half-ending 50-yard field
goal to put the Panthers three
points closer.
The third quarter resumed
with play much like the first 25
minutes of the first half. There
was hard-hitting, great coverage,
a ton of quarterback pressureand
ball control. The Patriots had the
ball for an astounding 38:58 of
the game, lopping Carolina by
almost 18 minutes. They had
the ball for more than half of the
third quarter on their combined
three drives, and the last drive
carried into the final quarter
of play.
New Kngland scored only 14
seconds into the fourth quarter
on a short Antowain Smith run to
put the Patriots up 21-10. Smith
finished with 26 carries for 83
yards and one touchdown. To

The women's basketball team

Monday night in Williams Arena

the Blue Demons.
The nation's leading team in
scoring used a 54-point first half
to jump out to a 21-point halftimc
lead. The l.ady Pirates could not
contest the Blue Demon jump
shots as DePaul was deadly from
the field. I he Blue Demons started
the game hitting on nine of their
firsl ten three pointers to build
their big lead. DePaul finished

the court but often gave up easy
baskets on defense.

Super Bowl
from page B4
this point, New England had a
staggering 5H plays for M)H yards
whereas Carolina only had M
plays for 136 yards. Smith's
touchdown, however, marked
the point of no return; where
a seemingly low scoring and
defensive game turned into a
contest resembling that of an
Arena Football League game.
The Panthers responded
on the following possession,
driving 83 yards on six plays,
capped by anoutstanding33-yard
touchdown romp by running
back HeShaun Foster. Foster went
off-tackle left, broke through
the line, lowered his shoulders
in between a blocker and two
Patriots and came out practi-
cally untouched, racing toward
the end-zone where he dove in
to make the score 21-16.
The Panthers went for the
two-point conversion following
the score, trying to make it a
three-point game. Delhomme's
attempted pass to Muhammad
fell short, and the Patriots stayed
up by five.
New Fngland drove clown the
field on the following possession
and was knocking on Carolina's
door with little more than seven
and a half minutes left in the
game. Tom Brady rolled left
on a third and nine pass play,
was pressured and made a bad
decision, throwing the ball up
into the end one for tight end
Christian Fauria. Reggie Howard
intercepted the pass from Brady
and returned it to the Panthers'
10-yard line, preserving only a
live-point deficit.
Jake Delhomme followed up
the turnover with two incomplete
passes on first and second down.
On third down, however, history
was made and the momentum
shifted. Delhomme dropped back
and couldn't find an open man.
He stepped up in the pocket,
rolled left and launched a bomb
downfleld lor Muhammad who
caught the ball in stride and beat
New Fngland cornerhack Eugene
Wilson lor a record setting 85-
yard score. I he Panthers went
for another two-point conver-
sion and came up short, leaving
the score at 22-21.
New England got the ball back
with more than six minutes left
and drove 68 yards while chew-
ing up 4:02 on the clock. Tom
Brady finished the drive with
a play action pass, one-yard
touchdown to linebacker Mike
Vrahel, who entered the game as
an eligible receiver for that one
play. Belichick then pulled out
the tricky play, running a direct
snap play where the center snaps
the ball to the running back and
the quarterback fakes as if the
snap went over his head. The
play caught Carolina completely
off-guard and the Patriots went
up 29-22.
The Panthers went 80 yards
on seven plays, taking only 1:43
to tie the game up. Delhomme
threw a 12-yard touchdown
pass to a wide-open Ricky
Proehl, who also tied the game
up against New Fngland when he
played for the St. Louis Rams in
Super Bowl XXXVI. Delhomme,
who led the Panthers in eight
game-winning drives in the
fourth quarter or overtime this
season, had ice water in his veins
once again, completing five out
of six passes for 73 yards on the
tying drive.
I nni Brady got the ball back
for one last shot with 1:08 left.
He came through again, driving
down the field and completing
a huge 17-yard pass to David
(livens on third and three to set
up a 41-yard field goal with nine
set onds left. Vinatieri jogged on
the field to redeem himself and
made the winning kick putting
New Fngland up 32-29. Carolina
would be unable to do anything
with the following kickoff, giving
the Patriots their second Super
Bowl win in three years.

The Center for Counseling and Student Development is suspending its monthly
article titled "The Treasure Chest" in order to bring you news of a new malady
spreading throughout the campus. The February Funk visits campus each year. We
have already seen evidence of this phenomenon. Symptoms include:
� That roommate who was your best friend is now getting on your last nerve.
- Your normal energy level has been sucked out of you by some unseen being.
� You suddenly find all of the activities that used to be exciting are now as boring as watching paint dry.
' The simple act of touching a textbook can turn your brain into mush in an instant
� You go to your favorite restaurant and the food tastes like cardboard.
DON'T LOSE HOPE! Tliis malady has heen found to be lemporary. There are only 29 days in February
lliis year. In most eases, the February Funk will leave by the end of the month, or if not then, it will
leave on spring break. Students have the funk because February is the coldest month of the year, and
it is the most intense part of the spring semester. Someone described it this way: You are far enough
into the tunnel that you can no longer see the beginning, but you can't see the end yet. Here are some
pointers to get through the funk:
' Donl react on impulse. Understand that your fuse is short, and so are the fuses of those around you.
Give yourself and others a chance to breathe before reacting.
- Your brain Is less likely to become mush If you keep up In your coursework and are not doing
everything at the last minute. Study In short durations, and find ways to be creative with the material you
are trying to leam. In other words, write about it. read aloud, pace the room, use Index cards
� Take care of yourself In healthy ways: Find time to unwind by exercising, talking to friends, playing
sports or games, or listening to music. Find the ways that you can relax and use them. DONT alter your
mood with substances. When you get done using the substance, you are still stuck with the funk
If the Funk is causing you difficulty in getting things done like going to class, taking care
of your basic needs, or if the funk seems unbearable to you, use the walk-in services at the
Counseling Center. We are located in the Wright Building and can be reached at 2S2-328-66GI.
Some people have a very special version of the Funk which includes the Valentine's Day Curse. These
are people who either don't have a significant other and find Valentine's Day to be a very lonely time,
or people who have unrealistic expectations of their significant other on Valentine's Day. The Curse can
lead to feelings of rejection, loneliness, and can damage relationships. Here are some tips for warding
off the Curse:
� Ask yourself honestly "Can I realistically expect that my loved one will meet the expectations I have
for himher on this day? If not, you are setting yourself up for disappointment and possibly resentment
Start the day with appropriate expectations given what you know about your loved one, and you will
probably have a better day.
� If you are not in a relationship, make it fun. Plan to go out with friends, have a Valentine's Day boycott

Pirates remain winless in C-USA
ECU falls in close one
to DePaul, 70-65
The Pirates are still search-
ing for that first conference win
halfway through the Conference
USA regular season. ECU and
Head Coach Bill Herrion are
spiraling and need a victory to
regain control of their season.
The Pirates lost 70-65 against
UiT.iul Saturday night. It was
ECU'J eighth consecutive loss,
dropping the Pirates to 8-9 (0-7).
The Cincinnati Bearcats beat the
Pirates 80-57 two nights earlier.
ECU was without forwards
Gabriel Mikulas and Corey Rouse
for both match-ups Mikulas is
out for the season with a broken
arm and Rouse suffered a concus-
sion last week during practice.
Nine players suited up for
Herrion and each saw significant
action. Freshman Frank Robin-
son made his first career start
and scored seven points on 3-of-
K shooting. Senior tiarth Grind-
ley saw plenty of action helping
in the depleted frontcourt and
ripped down four rebounds in
nine minutes of play.
LCD held a slim 36-34 at
halftimc but shot 35 percent
in the second half to doom
any chance of picking up the
win. Mike Cook hit a jumper
for the Pirates with less than 18
minutes remaining to
give ECU their last lead at
40-38. The Blue Demons
then went on a 13-3 run as
Andre Brown scored eight points
during the spurt. Brown finished
the game with 19 points and
eight rebounds.
The Pirates weren't out of it
yet as a Moussa Badiane bucket
tied the contest at 62-62 with
2:30 left before DePaul pulled
away at the free-throw line. The
Blue Demons hit 19-of-29 from
the charity stripe compared to a
I0-of-13 performance from the
Cook finished the game
with a career-high of 17 points
and six assists and Krroyl Bing
contributed a season high of
IS points. Luke MacKay also
Stepped up for the Pirates nailing
three treys for nine points.
The Pirates have struggled both on the road and at home.
And the three-ball was the
difference; DePaul's perimeter
shooting was lights out while
ECU hit a mere 29 percent
from beyond the arc. Drake
Dlener was on fire for the Blue
Demons, scoring 21 points while
hitting 6-of-7 three-point
attempts while DePaul hit
