Rodman brings new attitude to Lakers [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 25 February 1999
Rodman brings new attitude to Lakers Out of Bounds JASON SNYDER Dennis Rodman has finally found himself a city that will capture his uniqueness and ability to always be the center of attention. With his move to Los Angeles, he moves out of the shadows of Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen m Chicago and has landed iin a city known for celebrities and people that love the spotlight. But with the move to L.A., Rodman, at age 38, will finally get the recognition he deserves as a basketball player. Look at what Los Angeles has done for Shaquille O'Neal and Kobe Bryant. Shaquille O'Neal is being called the best center in the NBA this season, even though he can't make a shot outside of three feet. Kobe Bryant is suddenly Michael Jordan even though he doesn't have anywhere near the talent that Jordan did. The only difference wiih Rodman will be that the praises he receives will be well deserved. As a Bulls fan, I often found myself trying to defend Rodman. People would ask me why I...

He helped in Chicago, so I don't see why he wouldn't help in Los Angeles." Steve Toinlinson, 06, MIS "He'll help. He'll get all the rebounds." Ben Rumbaugh, 04, MIS "He won't help. He will bring publicity, but it will be negative and positive. He was good for the Bulls because he was the only rebounder they had." Steve Slupski, 02, Undecided "He will help and hurt them. He's not in shape because he hasn't played a game since the end of last season. He might help once he gets back into it, but that might not be until the playoffs." Randy Armstrong, 04, MIS "He will help. They're almost fully equipped in every department already. He'll just be icing on the cake and make them a title contender. Plus, he'll bring them more publicity." Keith Smith, 06, MET

Behrend Professor takes Erie citizens on ride through space by Ryan Cannon staff writer This past Thursday night, Dr. Darren Williams, Assistant Professor of Physics here at Behrend, entertained the audience and its curiosity about habitable planets during the Astronomy Open House. From the moment that the fourth demonstation of the 1998/99 Astronomy Open House Series began, it was obvious that the evening was going to be wonderfully intriguing. Through the use of computer aided displays and animation, Williams incorporated his expertise to educate the audience on celestial matters. The voyage began as the inquisitive crew and their captain traveled back five hundred years to the days of the Polish Astronomer Nicholas Copernicus. This is when interest in the cosmos first began. During this time, religion had powerful influence on every decision, and astronomers were despised because of their new discoveries and beliefs about the universe.

How much is that book? by Shannon Weber news editor Part of being a Behrend students is getting your course books from the only bookstore on campus, the Penn State Bookstore. Many students are resentful of the bookstore's prices, its monopoly on course book sales and their buyback policy. However, bookstore managers claim that their policies are inaccordance with industry standards. All required course books that are sold in the bookstore are chosen by the professors.

He said that the students usually order them in a group and are able to get a few books through them for a cheaper rate. The publishing companies sell the books to the booksto...
