College freshmen fear computers [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 29 November 1984
College freshmen fear computers PITTSBURGH (CPS)-Most college freshmen are surprised, confused and frustrated during their first year of computer courses, according to a newlyreleased study. The computer anxiety afflicts incoming students in all majors, but may be particulary severe among liberal arts majors, observers add. Over 80 percent of all incoming freshmen are "surprised" by the subject matter covered in computer courses, the survey reveals. Moreover, one of every two freshmen are "confused" by computer coursework, while nearly 70 percent say the courses actually make them "frustrated" and "angry." "When freshmen go away to college they have a lot of new experiences. But the computer science courses turn out to be much different than any of the new students expected," says Lee Sproull, a researcher at Carnegie Mellon University who has surveyed CMU freshmen over the last three years to asses their attitudes toward computer courses there. Among other things, Sproull s...
Sunday closing halts research [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 29 November 1984
Sunday closing halts research It's Sunday afternoon after the all-too-short Thanksgiving break and there are only two weeks left until all of those research projects are due. So, as a campus resident, why not come back early enough to do some last-minute research before writing those papers? After getting the already compiled notes together, it's time for the long journey to the library. However, when you get there, you are in for a big surprise. The library is closed! Yes, you're saying, but the library was open on Friday. That's right, the day that most campus residents were spending time hours away from Capitol Campus, they could have been working on their research papers. Instead, everyone who figured that the work in the library can be done on Sunday after returning was in for a big surprise. Upon further investigation of the situation, it was discovered that the computer center in the Olmsted Building was operating on its normal Sunday evening schedule. If a service that...
Nuclear debate deserves attention [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 29 November 1984
Nuclear debate deserves attention Letters to the Editor: To the Editor: It was interesting to see the response of the SGA here on campus to HACC's recent decision to attempt a stockpiling of cyanide pills on campus. Certainly this had some shock value and is not a preventative response to nuclear war, but it does show some effort to rise above apathy. The student government here at Capitol, in their recent statement published in The Capitol Times, suggests that they might hold a forum on the issue of the nuclear arms race. First of all, it was unfortunate that such a forum could not have been held prior to the elections since the degree of nuclear proliferation will increase or decrease according to the candidate chosen. (Letter was submitted before election day — Ed.) Second of all, such an educational endeavor was tried by outside interests approximately a year and a half ago. The Nuclear Freeze group came to Capitol to talk to students about the issue of nuclear war, an...
Drunk drivers: a brother's anguish [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 29 November 1984
Drunk drivers: a brother's anguish Dear Capitol Campus Penn Stater: You don't realize it but you came mighty close to having a few of your front teeth loosened the other day. You were laughing at the time, so you didn't notice anything threatening but it was there. You were in the library and you were laghing with friends and telling them about how you'd been arrested — for the second time — for drunk driving. Ha! Ha! It was a big joke. But you see the fellow student who overheard you lost his little brother to a drunk driver. He was only 15 when the drunk driver hit him as he stood on a bridge, flipped him into the river, and left him to die. Your fellow student knows what it's like to be in the family of a drunk driver's victim. His mom got so much older overnight,it seemed, and she was so quiet and remote; no longer the funloving, happy adult who had so willingly helped with the soccer team fund raising and the band parent's functions. And yes, your Penn State classmate m...
Indian leader mourned [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 29 November 1984
Indian leader mourned To the Editor, The recent murder of Indira Gandhi is a sad incident. Tragic as it is for India, it also sends a message to the rest of the world. No, we're not speaking of the economic effects or the political ramifications. We're talking about the violent act itself. This killing is symbolic of the pathological spread of violence by extremists and fanatics. Terrorists, hiding behind the skirt of religion or any other cause, have no place in any country in the world. Again and again, we have paid dearly for their senseless murders. This time, India has lost a very capable and seasoned leader and has been thrown into bloody turmoil. The foolishness of the fanatic mind is apparent when one sees the situation created in India by the death of Mrs. Gandhi; a few more dead Sikhs, a few dead Hindus and the clamping of a curfew throughout most of the nation. If this was the intention of the killers, much can be said about their motives. More than anger, we feel...

Bulimia worst over holidays [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 29 November 1984
Bulimia worst over holidays Most students look forward to holiday vacations as a joyful time for reunions and large family meals; but, for people with eating disorders, these instead may be times for confrontations, lies and painful anxiety. Bulimia, which is characterized by binge/purge behavior, and anorexia nervosa, a less common but related condition of self-starvation, are dangerous epidemics currently affecting between 25-33 percent of college-aged women (also many men). Under ordinary circumstances, the lives of these students are dominated by low self-esteem, generalized fear and obsessive thoughts about food. During the holidays, however, these feelings are intensified. With a well-thoughtout plan and plenty of motivation, these individuals can use this time off to start a program for recovery. Although the underlying causes vary, eating disorders typically begin for psychological reasons and become addictive. Most cases are women with unrealistically YiigYv expecta...
Stress setninar offered here [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 29 November 1984
Stress setninar offered here (continued from pg. 1) trap," Gailey said, "because so much of my time belongs to other people and school projects. There's not enough time for myself."

Nutra Blurbs from Health Services [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 29 November 1984
Nutra Blurbs from Health Services Did you know that it takes 60,000 bees to produce one pound of honey? Think about that the next time you dip into a jar of honey. Honey is a natural pre-digested sweetner--full of potassium. Lots of what tastes good to you is what you are used to. Qne way to develop a taste for something new is to try just a nibble or a sip. Did you know that one cigarette burns up to 25 milligrams of Vitamin C? All smokers need extra citrus fruits, fresh strawberries, cabbage, green peppers, tomatoes and dark green vegetables—even the peeling on your baked potato.
Campaign begins student's career [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 29 November 1984
Campaign begins student's career (continued from pg. 1) Oddo spent $800 on his campaign, most of the funds coming from his own pocket. According to Oddo, the Republican State Party offered no monetary help, just a good deal of verbal support. His opponent, however, spent over $8,000 on his reelection bid, a figure that Oddo says he helped to inflate with his own persistent one to one contacts. When asked if he has any regrets about running for public "I did a lot better than most people thought I would." Joseph Oddo Senior, Public Policy office, Oddo says one reason he did this was to "awaken political awareness, and get young people involved. "It's our generation that will be running things in a few years — it's time we began formulating our ideologies and become actively involved." In the meantime, Oddo still has work to do in order to graduate this December. His bid for public office included a 9-credit independent study with Michael Young, assistant professor of poli...
