IRS recruiter visits ECU campus
available to students
Carl Ienny, full time recruiter
of the Internal Revenue Services,
visited ECU's campus last week
informing students of career oppor-
tunities offered through the IRS.
Several IRS positions include
an internal revenue agent who
are mainly accounting majors
assigned to companies, internal
revenue officers, open to any
major - usually with a financial
background, who's position typi-
cally works doing investigations
and civil frauds and a criminal
investigator. Much of the IRS posi-
tions require students to have some
kind of accounting or financial
background, and the criminal
investigator position requires a test
in which interested participants
must achieve a 70 or higher.
While many of the IRS posi-
tions focus on skilled accounting
majors, a person's interpersonal
skills are also considered.
The IRS hires people from a vari-
ety of majors including engineering,
law, budget accounting and others.
"The number one skill set
the IRS looks for is interpersonal,
enthusiasm and self-starting
Tenny said when searching
for a career, people usually look
for decent pay, decent pension
and benefit plans.
The IRS currently has about
115,000 employees and is down
about 10,000. The main reason
Students interested in careers within the EIRS seek information and job opportunities.
why the IRS is short so many
workers are due to people retiring.
The IRS dates back to the Civil
War when President Lincoln and
Congress created the Commissioner
of Internal Revenue enacting an
income tax to cover war expenses.
This tax was eventually repealed
10 years later when the Supreme
Court ruled it unconstitutional.
By the 1950s, the agency was
reorganized replacing the patron-
age system with career, profes-
sional employees. Currently,
only the IRS Commissioner and
Chief Counsel are selected by the
President and confirmed by the
Senate. The Bureau of Internal
Revenue name also was changed
to the Internal Revenue Service to
emphasize service to taxpayers.
The IRS recently underwent
a major reformation called
the Restructuring and Reform
Act of 1998, prompting the
most comprehensive reorgani-
zation and modernization of
IRS in nearly half a century.
The law resulted in the IRS reor-
ganizing itself into four major
operating divisions, aligned by
types of taxpayers
A program offered by the IRS
for students is called the Under-
standing Taxes program featuring
more than 1,100 pages of content
making learning taxes interac-
tive, relevant and educational.

tions to classroom instruction.

public can use for learning more

campus safety week
Students given chance
to voice safety issues
ECU'S campus safety is taking
place this week and is offering
students a chance to express
specific concerns regarding safety
during several events taking
Shannon O'Donnell, student
government association president
said the main purpose of campus
safety week is to do an annual
regular update on various safety
factors existing on ECU's campus
that may need to be addressed.
"Safety is something that
affects everyone, regardless of
age, race, gender, and because
its such a universal concern
within campuses, it should be
one that everyone is aware of
and tries to educate themselves
and make themselves safer said
The main aspects of this year's
campus safety week includes an
annual safety walk - a walk
across ECU's campus beginning
at west campus where students
look for areas that could propose
a potential safety hazard and
self-defense training classes in
Mendenhall teaching students
basic self defense methods. Stu-
dent surveys will also be avail-
able in the Wright plaza offering
students the chance to voice
their opinions toward campus
safety and any specific concerns
Campus safety week is
intended to educate students on
how to become safer on and off
campus, and with events like the
safety walk we educate ourselves
and the administration about
safety concerns that need to be
addressed O'Donnell said.
According to O'Donnell,
specific safety requests pointed
out in last year's safety walk
included a fence behind Jones
Hall separating the residence hall
from the wooded area behind
it, increased lighting in the

UNC approves raises
CHAPEL HILL, NC (AP) - Most of the
16 chancellors for the University of
North Carolina will earn more this
year under a pay plan approved by
The Board of Governors agreed Friday
to raises for 14 chancellors, including
a 7.5 percent hike for UNC-Chapel
Hill Chancellor James Moeser. The
retroactive raise puts Moeser's pay at
$274,797, the most of any chancellor
in the system right now.
His pay remains about $21,000 less
than the minimum that the board set
for the UNC-Chapel Hill chancellor
in July when it reviewed its salary
structure in an effort to become more
competitive with other universities.
The goal is to raise salaries so that
chancellors and other key university
employees are among the top 25
percent in pay when compared to
After the approved raises, only the
salaries for chancellors at UNC and
NC State University remain outside
of the 25th percentile, according
to information from UNC system
President Molly Broad's office.
The minimum goal for chancellors'
salaries at both schools is $295,704.
The chancellors at Appalachian
State and East Carolina universities
didn't get raises Friday because their
salaries had been negotiated during
their recent Wrings.
UNC-Charlotte Chancellor James
Woodward got the largest percentage
increase among chancellors, an 8
percent bump that put his salary at
$230,391, about $25,000 more than
the target minimum.
Woodward is in his last year as
chancellor, after about 15 years of
what Broad called "extraordinary"
contributions to the UNC system.
"This is a way of expressing our
appreciation to him Broad said.
The board also agreed to raise Broad's
salary by 4 percent to $312,504, or
about $36,500 below the target salary
for that position.
The raises were the first "meaningful"
salary increases in three years for
most chancellors and system vice
presidents, Broad said. She said the
university needs to do more to keep
its top administrators from leaving.
She mentioned the departure of
J.B. Milllken, the former UNC senior
vice president for university affairs
who was named president of the
University of Nebraska system this
summer. "We've got to keep these
folks. They are being recruited away
The salary adjustments come in a year
when the system's 15,000 professors
and administrators will get raises of at
least $1,000. Selected employees will
get raises based on merit and market
and equity considerations.
Final structure of old Mustang
Ranch flown to brothel near Reno
RENO, Nev.(AP) - The last piece of a
risque chapter of Nevada history - the
Mustang Ranch brothel - was airlifted
to a new home Sunday.
Unlike other buildings from the state's
first legal bordello, the 63-foot-wide
parlor where the working girls lined
up for customers was too big to be
moved by truck to its new location at
the Wild Horse Adult Resort & Spa.
About a dozen girls cheered and
champagne flowed as a double-
rotored helicopter gently lowered the
skeleton of the parlor into place and
workers secured it to a concrete pad.
Crews had to cut about 3,000 pounds
of wooden braces from the building
after the pilot determined it was over
the chopper's 11-ton limit.
Prostitution was illegal across Nevada
when Sicilian immigrant Joe Conforte
took over the 104-room ranch in
1967. It became the state's first legal
brothel in 1971, and prostitution Is
now legal in 12 mostly rural Nevada
counties.Mustang Ranch has been
closed since the IRS seized it in 1999
after the conviction of the bordello's
manager and its parent companies
in a fraud and racketeering case.
Conforte fled to Brazil to avoid tax
charges more than 10 years ago.
The U.S. Bureau of Land Management,
which took over the property, had
planned to level the complex because
the buildings were in a flood plain. But
after prevailing in a series of court
suits and environmental challenges,
Wild Horse owner Lance Gllman
bought the property and its name on
eBay from the BLM for $145,000.
Gilman estimates he has spent $1.5
million since then on site preparation
and the four-mile move of the dozen
sections of the pink stucco-clad
The girls' cubicles and other rooms
branch out like spokes from the
hexagonally shaped parlor. Two of
the spokes can't fit on the site in front
of the Wild Horse and will become a
museum filled with Mustang Ranch
Susan Austin, the Wild Horse madam,
supervised everything from the
African hunting trophies in the parlor
to the paint schemes in the private
suites in the new brothel. She said
the renovated Mustang Ranch will not
include the flocked red wallpaper and
chintzy furnishings of the original.
That wouldn't be me she said.

billowed up from North Korea was
not caused by a nuclear explosion,

Sunday, but they said the cause was
Secretary of State Colin Powell
confirmed that unusual activity had
recently been detected at some of
North Korea's atomic sites, but said
there was no concrete evidence the
North's secretive communist regime
was preparing for its first nuclear test
The South Korean news agency
Yonhap reported Sunday that a
mammoth explosion in North Korea
produced a mushroom cloud more
than 2 miles across Thursday. It said
the blast was stronger than an April
explosion that killed 160 people
and injured an estimated 1,300 at a
North Korean railway station when
a train carrying oil and chemicals
apparently hit power lines. "There
was no indication that was a nuclear
event of any kind Powell said of
Thursday's incident. "Exactly what it
was, we're not sure
Kim Jong-min, spokesman for the
South Korean presidential office, told
Yonhap: "Currently, we are trying to
find out in detail the exact character,
cause and size of the accident, but
we don't think North Korea conducted
a nuclear test
China's government, which has the
closest relations with North Korea,
had no immediate comment about
the reported explosion.
Appearing on ABC's "This Week
Powell said there were "some
activities taking place at some sites
that we are watching carefully, but it
is not conclusive that they're moving
toward a test or they're just doing
some maintenance at that site

not be a sensible step for them
to take he said. "And it Is not just

"North Korea is looking for assurances
that we're not going to invade it, (that)
we have no hostile intent Powell
said. "They're looking for benefits for

their nuclear infrastructure. And what
we're debating is what will it take to
give them the assurances they need

Appeals court reinstates death
penalty for Zacarias Moussaoui
WASHINGTON (AP) � An
appeals court ruled Monday
that the government can seek

but said he must be given fair
access to al-Qaida witness
statements that might support

US Airways files for bankruptcy protection

ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) � US

for the second time in two years.
The company's president vowed

US Airways actually turned a

AMANDA Q. UNGERFELT Editor In Chief
TUESDAY September 14,20(
Many students at ECU are not fully aware of all
the safety issues that face a college student.
Just walking to a night class can be hazardous
if someone is not aware of their surroundings.
Not only female students are in danger of being
a victim of some sort of crime. Identity theft,
sexual assault, robbery and physical abuse are
some of the unfortunate things that can happen
to any unaware student.
Although ECU is taking measures to make
a safer environment for students on and off
campus through heightened security and the
addition of the Center for Off Campus Living,
students still need to take matters into their
own hands. It may not be evident with a quick
glance, but ECU has some security safeguards
already in place for students.
If you are walking through campus, at night or
even during the day, do not forget that if you
feel threatened in any way, you can always
use the emergency boxes. These campus call
boxes are placed strategically all over campus
for the safety of students. Also, don't forget the
ECU police are here for the students and staff.
If you have a concern about safety on campus,
contact them so they are aware of the issue.
Getting in touch with the ECU police, whether
in an emergency or not, is easy. In a non-
emergency, call the ECU police at 328-6787.
Whether you are on or off campus, dial 9-1-1
in an emergency situation.
The most important thing that students can
do to stay safe is to use common sense. If you
are in a dorm room, apartment or car, keep the
doors locked at all times.
Another way to protect yourself from danger
is to never go anywhere alone. A potential
assaulter will be far less likely to violate a group
of people than they are to assault a male or
female who is walking around alone. If you are
going downtown, to a night class or even just
down to do your laundry, always have some-
one with you. Don't be embarrassed to ask
someone to go with you, just think of all of the
examples of what happened when someone
did not use the buddy system.
We're not saying to be paranoid all the time
or to start carrying a night stick as a "fashion
statement Be aware of your surroundings and
if you feel uncomfortable, go with your instinct
and call the police. They would much rather
come out and talk to you than come out and
draw the chalk outline.
Registering to vote is important task
Numbers indicate not
enough young voters
Head Copy Editor
Time is running out! But first,
I would like to share the following
numbers with you: (1) 45.4; (2) 59.6;
(3) 71.2; (4) 76.2; (5) 76.1
And their companion numbers:
(1) 32.3; (2) 49.8; (3) 64.1; (4) 69.9;
Anybody recognize them by any
chance? Hmm? They do seem innocent
enough don't they? They are just a
bunch of numbers on one sheet of a col-
lege newspaper. Maybe even another set
of insignificant statistics nobody cares
about. They are nothing that concerns
you, right? Wrong.
These innocuous looking numbers
represent an immense amount of
power. These numbers control or influ-
ence a large portion of your life.
These are voter statistics from
the November, 2000 election broken
down by age groups. The first line is
the percentage of eligible people who
REGISTERED to vote. The second line
is the percentage of registered voters
who got off their lazy butts and actually
VOTED. The age groups break down
(1) 18-24; (2) 25-44; (3) 45-64; (4)
65-74; and (5) 75 .
Only 45.2 percent of the eligible
18-24 year olds in this country both-
ered to even register to vote in the
2000 elections. And only a paltry
32.3 percent of those who did register
could take time out of their self cen-
tered lives to vote. Put another way,
of the more than 26.7 million eligible
18-24 year olds, just more than 8.6
million voted. Talk about pathetic.
I know that the majority of current
students were not old enough to vote in
the 2000 elections, but simple statistics
(and historical data) indicate that some
of our juniors and seniors are part of the
majority of young people who couldn't
be bothered with voting. Why? Ask
them. They shouldn't be that hard to
run down. I usually find that they are
the ones complaining the loudest about
how "bad" things are in this country.
So, what about the rest of you?
There is another Presidential Election
this year. Are you going to vote? Are you
registered to vote? Do you even care?
If not, why?
Look at the numbers at the begin-
ning of this article again. Do you
know what they really represent? They
represent a bunch of uninterested, lazy
people who are abrogating control
of their futures to dinosaurs (fossils,
fogies, old farts, whatever) like me of
the older generations. We are the ones
deciding how you will live for the next
20 to 50 years (that's how long it will
take most of us to shuffle off this mortal
plain). The young people who did not
vote in 2000 essentially decided to let
Mommy and Daddy keep making their
decisions for them. Is that what you
plan to do this year also?
Registering to vote is one of the
most important things that you can
possibly do. And it is so easy, whether
you live in or out of North Carolina.
You can register at any post office. Your
can walk into your local Election Board
and register. If you live out of state
you can request and mail in registra-
tions or register the next time you go
Not a Democrat or Republican? No
excuse. You do not have to vote for the
candidates of the party you are regis-
tered with. Never have. So, you Green
Party people, Libertarians, Indepen-
dents, Constitutionalists or whatever
party you care to align yourself with,
register with either group the next time
they are out. Then vote for whoever
Ain't that simple?
Now, the more observant readers
will recognize this article. It initially
ran in March, but is still relevant today:
maybe more so now that the elections
are closer and the partisanship is in
Also, as I stated at the beginning,
time is running out.
Many states have a voter registration
deadline, usually 30 days or so before
the election. North Carolina's deadline
is 25 days before the election. If you do
not register by the deadline, oh well.
You'll have to wait until 2006 or 2008.
There are several ways to check
what the deadline is for your particular
state. You can go online to your indi-
vidual state's election board site, or you
can call them. There are also several
Web sites that I have found that list
the deadlines for each state for your
convenience. My personal preference
However you get the information,
just make sure to register. It is free.
And after you have registered, be sure
Don't be one of the lazy, apathetic
individuals cataloged at the beginning
of this article.
There is absolutely no excuse for
you not to register and vote in the
upcoming elections if you are eligible.

Almost everyday my father sends me
numerous e-mails that so many Vietnam
veterans, like my father, receive and pass
on. Today I happened to be listening in
to "Fox News" while Oliver North was
being interviewed in front of a rather
large live audience.
General North served for the United
States Marine Corps, as a rifleman in the
Vietnam Conflict. He has recently been
analyzing our nation's security measures
to make sure that we are able to do our
best to prevent another terrorist attack
on American soil. He, as well as a few of
the audience members today were very
upbeat about the measures that have
been taken in the past four years in order
to keep our homefront safe. In fact, Gen.
North commented about a training exer-
cise conducted in Charleston, SC, which
included officers from more than 50
different law enforcement agencies. It is
good to know that this training is going
on somewhat close to home.
Also today, I received an e-mail from
my dad. Attached to the e-mail was an
article written by General North. The
article may seem like somewhat of an
attack on John Kerry, although it is the
Of course, the president keeps
telling people he would never question

group does just that. Well, if he wants to

� Sen. John Kerry
Dear John, As usual, you have it
wrong. You don't have a beef with Presi-
dent George Bush about your war record.
He's been exceedingly generous about
your military service. Your complaint
is with the 2.5 million of us who served
honorably in a war that ended 29 years
ago and which you, not the president,
made the centerpiece of this campaign.
I talk to a lot of vets, John, and this
really isn't about your medals or how
you got them. Like you, I have a Silver
Star and a Bronze Star. I only have two
Purple Hearts, though. I turned down
the others so that I could stay with the
Marines in my rifle platoon. But I think
you might agree with me, though I've
never heard you say it, that the officers
always got more medals than they earned
and the youngsters we led never got as
many medals as they deserved.
This really isn't about how early you
came home from that war, either, John.
There have always been guys in every war
who want to go home. There are also lots
of guys, like those in my rifle platoon in
Vietnam, who did a full 13 months in
the field. And there are, thankfully, lots
of young Americans today in Iraq and
Afghanistan who volunteered to return
to war because, as one of them told me
in Ramadi a few weeks ago, "the job isn't
Nor is this about whether you were in
Cambodia on Christmas Eve, 1968. Heck
John, people get lost going on vacation.
If you got lost, just say so.
But that's not really the problem,
either. The trouble you're having, John,
isn't about your medals or coming home
early or getting lost - or even Richard
Nixon. The issue is what you did to us
when you came home, John.
When you got home, you co-founded
Vietnam Veterans Against the War
and wrote "The New Soldier which
denounced those of us who served - and
were still serving - on the battlefields of
a thankless war. Worst of all, John, you
then accused me - and all of us who
served in Vietnam - of committing ter-
rible crimes and atrocities.
On April 22, 1971, under oath, you
told the Senate Foreign Relations Com-
mittee that you had knowledge that
American troops "had personally raped,
cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires
from portable telephones to human
genitals and turned up the power, cut
off limbs, blown up bodies, randomly
shot at civilians, razed villages in fashion
reminiscent of Genghis Khan, shot cattle
and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks,
and generally ravaged the country side of
South Vietnam And you admitted on
television that "yes, yes, I committed the
same kind of atrocities as thousands of
other soldiers have committed
And for good measure you stated,
"(America is) more guilty than any other
body, of violations of (the) Geneva Con-
ventions the torture of prisoners, the
killing of prisoners
One last thing, John. In 1988, Jane
Fonda said: "I would like to say some-
thing to men who were in Vietnam,
who 1 hurt, or whose pain I caused to
deepen because of things that I said or
did. I was trying to help end the killing
and the war, but there were times when
I was thoughtless and careless about it
and I'm very sorry that I hurt them.
And I want to apologize to them and

Best of Penland School of Crafts comes to campus
Celebrating 75 years of
great artistic work
High in the scenic Blue Ridge
Mountains of North Carolina is
an institution rich with ingenu-
ity that encourages creativity.
The renowned Penland School
of Crafts draws students from
far and wide to learn or further
their artistic abilities. The school
attracts an eclectic range of
talent including specialists in
metalwork, textiles, glass and
photography. Students varying
from beginners to accomplished
artists are attracted to the oppor-
tunity to be a part of the pres-
tigious legacy of the Penland
School of Crafts.
This year has been declared
the 'Year of Craft' by the
Governor of North Carolina,
Mike Easley. In honor of this,
ECU will showcase some of the
finest work that Penland's best
and brightest have to offer. The
Wellington B. Gray Gallery will
host the NC Craft 04: A Celebra-
tion of Penland's 75th Anni-
versary exhibition from Sept. 1
- Oct. 2.
"Craft stands as a common
denominator among peoples, as
an act of invention, embellish-
ment and communication. To
honor craft is to recognize the
value inherent in the human
spirit. To pay attention to craft
is to learn from materials and
process, to find joy in the utilitar-
ian and the commonplace, and
to realize that powerful ideas
are made manifest through the
work of the hands said Jean
McLaughlin, Penland's director.
The beginnings of Penland's
absorbing history go back to 1923
when Lucy Morgan organized
Crafts from the prestigious Penland School of Crafts are on
display in the Wellington B. Gray Art Gallery.
the Penland Weavers, a group
of local women who specialized
in hand woven goods. As the
group became more popular,
Morgan began to invite guest
speakers to teach their knowledge
of craft to the women of the
area. By 1929, the school flour-
ished into an arena dedicated
to various types of crafts. As
a reflection of the times, in
this case, the Great Depression,
these crafts were made out of
necessity. The women began
making pots, weaving baskets
and creating household items
they needed to survive. These
crafts, though, slowly went from
being items with a specific pur-
pose to pure art.
Today, the campus stretches
on 400 acres of land. As one of
the largest and most well-known
craft schools in the country,
Penland attracts more than 1,200
students every year. Many artists
seek the opportunity to partici-
pate in the school's resident artist
program. It gives students the
chance to enrich their experience
by living on the grounds and
focusing all their energy on art.
Classes are available from March
- May; summer courses are avail-
able in one-week, two-week or
and during the fall from Septem-
ber - November.
The appeal of Penland is that
anyone interested in craft can

class sharing these things and
living and working together for
that two-week time and it's an
amazing energy said Linda
Doherty, an instructor at ECU,
who has also taught at Penland.
When you enter the exhibit
at the Wellington B. Gray Gal-
lery, the first thing you will see
is a panoramic photo taken five
years ago of Penland instructors,
alumni and their families. It
is a veritable past, present and
future of the Penland School of
Crafts. Beyond this photo, the
culmination of 75 years of work
is presented to the ECU com-
munity. The exhibit consists of
a unique mix of different art
forms. Blown-glass works, such as
the Bird Goblet by Robert Levin,
mingle with beautiful photo-
graphs and sculptures. There
are clay pieces, paintings, pieces
made of metal and of course,
baskets, which started every-
thing. Nearly every facet of the
art world is compressed into one
gallery and would give someone
not completely educated on the
subject of art a great place to get
their feet wet.
For this exhibit, former and
present instructors of Penland
were called upon to contribute
some of their work. An invitation
was sent to teachers currently
living in North Carolina to con-
tribute to the gallery.
Wrapping up the demonstra-
tion on Oct. 1 will be a sympo-
sium where 12 featured artists
will discuss their work and give
advice for aspiring artists. The
focus of the symposium isn't
completely on the artwork. Art is
a very difficult career in which to
make a living and many students
have concerns over how they will
be able to earn a living while still
pursuing their passion. Doherty
feels that this symposium will
give ECU students a chance to
ask some of these burning ques-
tions and said, "We're giving our
students an opportunity to talk
to people who make a living with
A great deal of dedication
went into the exhibits of Pen-
land. For art lovers or anyone
who can appreciate the work of
many talented individuals, the
Wellington B. Gray Gallery offers
a chance for students to broaden
their horizons and view a history
of unique and interesting art.

Dances of Universal Peace promotes awareness
come together to
The tragedy that befell our
country on Sept. 11, 2001 didn't
ust hit the United States, it shook
the whole world. Ever since then
it seems as if tension throughout
the world is at an all time high.
With just about every country,
religion and political group hating
each other, people are losing
sight of what's really important.
This intense stress is caus-
ing people to dislike others just
because of something someone
else in their culture did. Getting
mad at each other has seemed to
only create more problems.
Most of the animosity toward
different cultures comes from the
lack of knowledge about them. It
is important for the good of man-
kind to recognize people's differ-
ences, but mostly to understand
and accept the differences.
That's why in the spring of
2002 the Student Involvement
Team sponsored Dances of Uni-
versal Peace. It Is a display of
different spiritual and cultural
rituals. The music is all acousti-
cal and very unique with various
types of instruments, singing,
chanting and dancing.
People have used singing and
dancing since the beginning of
time and in almost every reli-
gious sect. Dances of Universal
Peace gives students the oppor-
tunity to get a glimpse into the
lives of other cultures.
The movements and songs
are drawn from more than 400
dances including themes of
peace, healing and the celebra-
tion of life. There will be people
from many different spiritual
groups such as Buddhist, Muslim,
Hindu, Islam and Judaism. Not
only will they teach you about
their customs and beliefs, but
students can actually participate
in the rituals.
"It is a chance for people to
get out and see other cultures and
religions they may never get to
see said Lynn Caverly, assistant
director of student activities.
The event takes place on
Saturday, Sept. 19 from 4 p.m.
- 6 p.m. in 244 Mendenhall. The
dancing lasts for about an hour
and then there is a break for
refreshments and socializing.
This event is open to every-
one and is free of charge. All of
the musicians actually do this
as part of their missionary and
refuse to accept any payment.
Mostly comprised of simple
circle dancing and singing, all
dances are lead by a guitar player,
so no experience is required.
The exhibition is being held
in honor of World Peace Week.
The government created Veterans
Day to make everyone stop and
appreciate the people who give
their lives for our freedom. So
why not have a week to celebrate
and promote world peace?
Instead of mourning what

Latest trend sweeping campuses
New magazine for
Have you ever been to the
bookstore and received coupons,
announcements or articles about
student life? Now thanks to
Christian Stenstrom, associate
editor, Christian Thornburg,
editor and Heather Tillett, pub-
lisher, you can get these things
plus other exciting details all
in one magazine. The title genZ
(pronounced jeans) fell into place
when the creators were trying
to find a name everyone could
relate to. Jeans are something
almost every person owns and
are familiar with in some way
or another. The "Z" originally
came from generation Z, but the
creators like to think of it as the
last letter of the alphabet and the
sign of up and coming.
The publisher of genZ said
"college is a unique experience
Students, especially fresh-
men, need to grow and adjust to
college life. This magazine relates
to students on a different level.
It's not packed with celebrities
or personality quizzes, it's about
real-life matters and also has
great savings. This magazine
offers advice about jobs, travel
and just college-life in general.
Billy Capps, a freshman at ECU,
said "genZ gave me great tips on
how to save money and also has
articles that mv friends and I can
read and all relate to
Their dream to publish this
magazine nation-wide was a three-
year process. More than 400
surveys were taken to see what col-
lege students wanted to read. The
National Association of College
Stores came together with this idea
and helped Christian Thornburg,
Christian Stenstrom and Heather
Tillett's dream become a reality.
A lot of hard work and dedication
were given by these people with
the hopes of reaching college stu-
dents across the county.
"GenZ contains articles that
as a student I can relate to. It also
informed me of many world-wide
issues said Ashley Yopp, a fresh-
man at ECU.
Their first issue was pub-
lished this fall. One of the main
topics they discussed was the
importance of voting. Having
the freedom to rock your vote
is a privilege, so take advantage.
Another article that caught many
students' attention was 'Study
Abroad It explains to students
about how exciting, yet challeng-
ing studying aboard really is.
A heart-felt interview with
a soldier living in Afghanistan
also touched many students as
genZ asked many questions about
the life-style he had to conform
to, and the issues he now has to
An article about internships
is also a very insightful article for
students. It explains the impor-
tance of getting out in the real

ship position helped me out by

Responses such as this one
make the creators feel like they
have successfully done their job.
GenZ also has a new Web site
Students can register online
to win a cruise, a getaway to a
Club Med resort and much more.
They have news, travel, health
and body, sports, a career center
and tons of other interesting
things to explore.
The creators of genZ would
love to hear from students every-
where. The Web site includes
more topics concerning health,
career and life. Students can get
election updates, information
about the war and discover many

People are asking what would Jesus wear?
(KRT) � In the beginning,
Jesus was an outcast, misunder-
stood and punished for It.
Those days are over.
Walk through any mall, flip
on the television or turn on your
radio, and you'll see that Jesus is
cool. Mel Gibson's The Passion of
the Christ made12S.2 million in
just five days.
Jesus is becoming a pop-cul-
ture icon and inspiring main-
stream movies, music and, most
noticeably, fashion, lie is on T-
shirts, messenger bags, wristbands,
license plates, notebooks, stickers,
bobble heads and even ashtrays.
The most trendy l's are the
"Jesus Is My Homeboy" and
"Mary Is My Homegirl" shirts
made by Teenage Millionaire.
The company has been around
since 2002, but Hollywood hot-
ties like Madonna and Ashton
Kutcher made these shirts popu-
lar last year.
Libby Wolfe, a high school
junior in Overland Park, Kan
says the shirts are great, depend-
ing on who is wearing them.
"It's really cool that people
are able to wear those shirts and
not be criticized. But I don't like
it when people wear them and.
say they are all into God and
then they don't walk the talk,
they're just about the trend
"1 really respect it and think
it's cool when they wear it and are
really representing their faith
Michael MacDonald is the
creative director of Living Epis-
tles, a Christian apparel manu-
com). He says the Christian
subculture has to communicate
with people on their own level
and these T-shirts provide a plat-
form for that.
"If pop culture wants to focus
on Jesus without bashing him
and people have a genuine desire
about getting close to him, it's

The Rev. John Brooks of

Kansas City agrees.
"As long as the message of
Christ isn't lost and these things
are drawing people closer to
Christ, I embrace it Brooks said.
"The church has to go beyond

Christians aren't the only
ones wearing their faith; other

Craig Karpel says it's all about

popular because younger genera-

"People really want to express
themselves and differentiate

Karpel, co-creator of Jewcy, an
online boutique (www.jewcy.com)
that sells its own Jewish designs as
well as Rabbi's Daughters and the
Jewish Fashion Conspiracy.
"Younger people seem to be
more aware and tolerant of diver-

moving in a more accepting and
And for the most part, people
sport the T's to create an oppor-
tunity for dialogue, Karpel says.
But anytime you're dealing with
religion, some people will be
offended, he says.
"It Is not meant to be self-
hating in any way Karpel says
of the religious T's.
"People that are more con-
servative think it is commercial-
izing or lessening the value of the
religion, but that's not what we
are doing. This is a very different
world then it was even 30 years
ago. When it comes to spread-
ing religion, the methods have
gotten a lot savvier and smarter
than they ever were
Close to 20,000 methods can
be found at Cafe Press, a Web
mall that provides a venue for
independent online stores.
"I think there's always been
an element of religious merchan-
dise on the Web, but the thing
that has changed is the use of
religious icons says Maheesh
Jain, vice president of sales and
marketing for Cafe Press.
"Early on, it was rooted
more in the religion and a
conservative tradition. These
days, it's huge. There's some
political humor and reli-
gious merchandise is edgier
Although Jain can't say what
exactly prompted the change,
he credits popular media such
as "The Simpsons" and religious
T's sold at Urban Outfitters with
a lot of the influence.
"People get inspired by pop
culture and come up with their
own take on it he says.
In addition to fashion, music-
is feeling the spirit, too. And we're
talking mainstream music, not
gospel rock, rap or any of that.
Hip-hop's current it-boy,
Kanye West, rhymes about Jesus
on his boundary breaking song,
"Jesus Walks which is getting
airplay on BET, MTV and main-
"It is surprising to hear Kanye
West on mainstream radio and on
television rhyming "Jesus Walks
says Anthony Graham, a high
school junior from Kansas City.
"During a time when
prayer and religion is being
pushed out of the schools, it's a
real positive sign to see a song like
that achieve commercial success
Kanye West isn't the only
hip-hopper with the spirit. Mase,
who retired five years ago to
become a minister, returned
to hip-hop earlier this summer
with a radio hit, "Welcome
Back and is on a crusade to
do upbeat, curse-free music.
Mase says he is not going to talk
about his faith on the album,
but he is going to show people
the light and live positively.
Young Buck, one of 50 Cent's
partners is rhyme, incor-
porates his belief in
Jesus in his verses. R&B, hip-hop
artist R. Kelly's double-album,
"Happy PeopleYou Saved Me
features one whole disc dedicated
to his faith.

movement in the mainstream as a
fad, but Anthony Graham disagrees.

night when in-state rival Wake

hopes for their first win of the

back Cory Randolph did most
of the damage as he threw for
two touchdowns and ran for
another en route to a 31-17 vic-
tory. The junior signal-caller had

only Demon Deacon to pass for
300 yards and rush for 100 in the
Randolph had a dismal outing

The word guarantee is some-
times overused in sports. While
we often have favorites and
underdogs, the outcome in sports
events is not guaranteed. Unfor-
tunately, the word guarantee can
be used to describe the women's

The first of these two games

the Furman Invitational against
fourth ranked Clemson. The
Furman Invitational hosted the
Tigers, the ninth ranked Jay-
hawks of Kansas and Furman.
The Lady Pirates were matched

While the Pirates battled
hard, they fell victim to a very
talented Tiger team, 8-0. The
Tigers shot an amazing 8 - 18 on

Donnenwitth isn't surprised at
the mistakes that his young team
made and knows they have a long
way to go.
"There's a reason why they
are the fourth ranked team in the
country said Donnenwirth.
"We still have a ways to go.
These teams are putting us to
the test and we really didn't pass
that test. We need to continually
improve. We made steps going
into Furman, but still had two
breakdowns. I like our team and
I think we're going to get better.

prising us - we knew we would
If the Pirates were to beat
Furman on their home turf, who
they met on Saturday, it was a

have to step up and the forwards
would have to put more shots on

nationally ranked opponent, and
were looking for the split on the

to 11 shots, nine of which were

with 233 yards on 20-of-37 pass-

The turnovers led to the first
touchdown of the game as Wake
RB Cornelius Birgs scored on
a six yard scamper. The eight-
play drive silenced the crowd of
38,141 and Wake led 10-0 at the
half after Matt Wisnosky kicked
a 31-yard field goal for the Deacs.
It was the first time since Sept.
13, 2003 since the Pirates had
failed to register a single point
in the first half.
ECU finally woke up in the
third quarter when Art Brown
broke off a 62-yard run. How-
ever, Brown, who is still trying
to recover from a devastating
knee injury, dropped a sure
touchdown on a trick pass from
Shawn Harmon only a few plays

After a muffed punt return
by Wake Forest receiver Willie
Idlette, Pinkney hooked up with
ECU receiver Bobby Good on an
18-yard strike in the corner of the
end zone. Good led the Pirates
in receiving with 122 yards on
six catches and the touchdown
marked the sophomore's first
score of his career.
On the following Deacons
drive, the Pirate defense stepped
up and forced a 3rd-and-17 near
midfield. The ECU defense put
pressure on Randolph, forcing
him to roll right and throw
off-balance, which gave Zach
Baker the opportunity to record
his first career interception as
With the crowd at their feet
and momentum on their side,
ECU started their next drive
at their own seven-yard line.
Being backed up in their own
end didn't seem to bother true
freshman Chris Johnson all
that much as he took a pitch
on 3rd-and-four and flew 86
yards for his first career touch-
down. The two-sport athlete
bolted for the seventh longest
rushing play in ECU history.
Johnson replaced Marvin
Townes, who was injured in the
first half and did not suit up for
the second half.
"It being my first touchdown,
it was great said Johnson.
"I had to beat one man and
once I beat him, I knew that I was
going to score. Coach told me to be
ready. Whenever it was my time,
I was ready
"As soon as he turned the
corner, I knew he was gone Brin-
dise said in regards to Johnson.
Chris Johnson scored his first collegiate TD against WFU.
"I don't care what team we are
playing against, no one is going
to catch him. We have to design
ways to get him involved
It was the last time that the
Pirates would score. As he did all
game, Randolph answered. He
led the Demon Deacons on a nine
play, 61-yard drive that seemed
to sink the ship. Randolph reeled
an 18-yard quarterback draw
over the left side for a touchdown.
The much-improved Pirate
offense moved the ball down
the field, but stalled inside the
red zone. Thompson chose not

Goalball season to
start this Wednesday
ARISE program offers
another unique sport
A Real Integrated Sports Expe-
rience (ARISE)'is an ECU pro-
gram providing the opportunity
for students with disabilities to
get involved in sports and fitness.
Through modified sports and
recreational activities, students
are able to participate in numer-
ous sports and fitness events
"Last year we had around 20
students with disabilities actually
participate with our program
said Heather Vercoe, program
assistant of the ARISE program.
"In the fall we had 79 vol-
unteers contribute a total of
543.75 hours of work, and in
the spring semester we had
a total of 47 volunteers con-
tribute a total of 173 hours
The ARISE program will
have its first goalball game of
the year this Wednesday night
from 7:30 p.m. - 9 p.m. in Wil-
liams Arena. Goalball is a sport
designed for individuals with
visual impairments. Players
who participate without visual
impairments are blindfolded, in
order to even the level of vision
for all players. All players are also
equipped with safety pads.
The object of goalball is to
roll a ball about the size of a
basketball through the other
team's goal line. The goals are
situated opposite of each other
on an 18 by 9 rectangle play-
ing court. The ball is equipped
with bells, so teams are forced
to rely on their hearing in
order to locate it and score.
Goalball will be played four
times this semester, the first time
being this Wednesday. The other
three games are scheduled for
Sept. 22, Oct. 6 and Oct. 13.
Goalball is just one of many
sports of the ARISE program. The
climbing wall, aerobics, aqua-
exercise, wheelchair basketball
and beep basketball are just some
of the adaptive sports provided
by the ARISE program. There are
also socials and parties for those
in the program. These socials
provide a way for participants
and volunteers to relax, have
fun and learn about upcoming
