Interracial friendships at Behrend: Why can't we just get along? [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 4 March 1999

Interracial friendships at Behrend: Why can't we just get along? By Danielle Marshall staffwriter That's what Rodney King said, but what King doesn't know is that students here at Penn-State Behrend are getting along just fine. Race does not dictate the boundaries of our friendships, our study partners, or even our roommates. It gives a chance to interact and experience people who are not like ourselves, whether it be the color of our skin, the texture of our hair, or our stature. Race can also be defined as any class of people having similar activities or interests. Apparently, it's not just about whether we look alike or not, but it also concerns the parties we go to together or the sports teams we try out for. The Multi-Cultural Council at Behrend sponsors many events, in which all students can participate and mingle with faculty, staff, fellow students, and community members of all kinds of races. As a result, interracial ties are formed and begin relationships that last...

SPEAKER SERIES COMMITTEE TO FORM IN MARCH The Speaker Series has always brought big names on campus to speak. In the past the list includes former Vice President Dan Quayle, Jesse Jackson, and Greg Louganis, just to name a lew. Sometimes, maybe the names are to big. When Greg Louganis came to speak he was literally surrounded by autograph seekers making it a challenge to move things along. As Director of Student Activities. Chris Rizwi puts it, "It was like a scene from a Hollywood opening night." Although the very gracious Louganis gave out many autographs and photos to people at the lecture. The Speaker Series will choose its new committee for next year in March, and students should expect next year to bring the same quality speakers as in the past. Meetings and negotiations will start this summer. Every year a new group of people headed by Chris Rizzo, meet and decide who will come and speak at Behrend. This year The Speaker Se Chatham Baroque ries brought the likes of D...

What were they thinking? [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 4 March 1999

What were they thinking? Aview from the lighthouse There is a general consensus of the on-campus residents that the locking up of residence halls at seven p.m. this Friday is a heinous idea. What were they thinking? Housing failed to consider the needs of residents who live in other states and/or are unable to get a ride home until Saturday or Sunday. And, to put the icing on the cake. Housing had the audacity to slip papers, which outlined hotels throughout the area that residents can stay at. under residents' doors. Does Housing really think that students, who are already paying at least $1,100 a semester for housing alone plus meal plans, tuition, and personal expenses, are able to afford another $40 to $ 100 for a hotel room? So, where are all these residents supposed to go if they cannot leave until after seven p.m. Housing's an swer is too bad. lhey do not care. Why should they'.'They have a place to go home to that is nearby. The purpose of Housing is to consider th...

Going Greek; a lifelong enrichment [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 4 March 1999

Going Greek; a lifelong enrichment by Rose Forrest copy editor As Copy Editor, it is my responsibility to correct articles on grammar and structure, but I have no control over content. Last Wednesday I faced my hardest night at layout ever as I realized I had no authority to keep the anti-Greek editorial ("Face it Greeks, vou've asked for ridicule" 2/25/99) be the most rewarding thing a collegiate can partake in.

Why don't we read? [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 4 March 1999

Why don't we read? Live From Guyana AYODELE JONES Extra!! Extra!!! Read all about it. Unfortunately, we, as college students, seldom do so. What exactly am I talking about? Well, you tell me. When was the last time, that you read a newspaper? Was it for that current event article in third grade or was it last week when you lined Furry's cage? Let's be real, some of us don't even read The Beacon, unless we are waiting outside our professor's office, and one just happens to be on the floor. Let's be real, some of us wouldn't even know that the U.S. was bombing Iraq if our favorite television show was preempted. If our only source for news was the newspaper, we'd be a campus full of zombies wonderin» whatever happened to Michael Jordan and Da Bulls. The University has sponsored a program, which provides students in the residence halls, suites, and the apartments with a free assortment of papers to choose from. These newspapers include The New York Times, USA Today, and The Er...

Teens and sex: the lure of forbidden fruit? [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 4 March 1999

Teens and sex: the lure of forbidden fruit? By James Wagoner Knight-Ridder Newspapers In the United States, why do about 700,000 teens become pregnant and 3 million teens contract a sexually transmitted infection each year'.' Why do 50 percent of all new HIV cases occur among young people under the age of 25? Why, despite recent declines, is the U.S. teen birth rate three times that ot Germany, nearly six times that ol France, and over seven times that ol the Netherlands? Advocates for Youth led a fact-finding team of experts and graduate students to Germany, France and the Netherlands to examine the different approaches to teen sexual health, hoping to find a solution to teen pregnancy, abortion and HIV infection. Could it be a mass media campaign like those in Europe that boast a single, consistent message - safe sex or no sex? How about public health systems that make contraception available confidentially, at little or no cost'.' Of ...

Coping with the aftermath of rape [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 4 March 1999

Coping with the aftermath of rape by Nicole Stuart The Indiana Daily Student Indiana University It's been a year and a half now since 1 was raped. During that time I have had to endure many careless comments and a lot of downright stupid advice. Ii was up to me to convince a prosecutor to pursue my case. It was acquaintance rape, so it would just be my word against my attacker's, the lawyer had said at first. The prosecutor finally saw a case worth pursuing when I took my attacker through the university's judicial system, where he stated we didn't have intercourse that night because I said no. Now I wait for the DNA to speak for itself. I had to fight for my life when I was so depressed that I didn't want to live anymore. I had to fight to get my financial aid back after the university took it away, because I was too distraught to continue with school. Officials at the Office of Student Ethics told me I would have to learn some coping skills after the university made special...

Prisoners play basketball with students from Bible college [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 4 March 1999

Prisoners play basketball with students from Bible college By Daniel Rubin Knight-Ridder Newspapers PHILADELPHIA — This is homecourt advantage. The visiting team runs a 400-yard gauntlet, past signs about drug-sniffing dogs and warnings to stick together, through hundreds of inmates milling about in uniforms the color of dried blood. "Yo, you're a tall one!" "You're going down!" The guests are from the Philadelphia College of Bible, 13 lanky, fresh-faced basketball players who learned the game in such places as Glennallen, Alaska, and Billings, Mont., guys comfortable saying, "Dang!" and "Good grief!" They've traveled an hour to face a team from ihe Slate Correctional Institution at Graterford. Starting for Graterford are two murderers and three men in for drug-related crimes and armed robberv. The officials are inmates paid 86 cents per game. The man keeping the clock is himself doing time, the scorekeeper just counting the days. And high above the court...

Court refuses to expand scope of Title IX [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 4 March 1999

Court refuses to expand scope of Title IX By Jan Crawford Greenburg Knisiht-Ridder Tribune WASHINGTON — Rejecting an argument by an Ohio woman banned from playing collegiate volleyball, the Supreme Court Tuesday refused to expand the scope of certain federal anti-discrimination laws. The unanimous ruling was a victory for the National Collegiate Athletic Association, which was hit with a sexdiscrimination lawsuit after it prohibited Renee Smith from playing volleyball. Smith argued that the NCAA should be liable under a federal education law that prohibits sex discrimination in "any education program or activity receiving federal financial assistance." The NCAA gets no federal money directly, but Smith argued it was subject to the law. Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, because it gels dues from colleges that receive federal aid. That argument, if adopted, could have had an enormous impact. Had the justices agreed, it coul...

Superfast Internet2 just for Universities for now [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 4 March 1999

Superfast Internet2 just for Universities for now By Reid Kanaley Knight-Ridder Newspapers Not online yet'.' You are about to fall even further behind. An ultrahighspeed "Internet!" was introduced in Washington today with promises of big-screen interactive video, the end of fist-pounding download delays and uses yet to be invented. For now, however, the $500 million system is only for experimental use by universities and industry researchers. Everyone else will have to wait. The benefits of Internet! will not trickle down to the common, salivating Web surfer for a few years, at least. And though it will make possible Internet connections tens of thousands of times faster than a 56K modem, Internel2 will not do e-mail or the World Wide Web. What it will do, its backers hope, is spark a generation of innovations, what e-mail and the Web were to the current Net. to dazzle in the 21st century. "We're just about to see another explosion of interesting techno...

Students build Lego cities for class [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 4 March 1999

Students build Lego cities for class By Clark Surratt Knight-Ridder Newspapers COLUMBIA, S.C. - Walk into the main lobby of USC's engineering school this morning, and you're likely to see some bleary-eyed students. Since 10 a.m. Sunday, teams ot engineering students have been working shifts to see who can build the best city, out of LEGOs. Four groups of students: chemical engineers, civil engineers, mechanical engineers and freshmen, were given a big pile of colorful LEGO pieces and !4 hours to build and explain their design. Beyond the basic rules, the contestants didn't know exactly what they were getting into. "It looks like somebody took a bunch of LEGOs nobody wanted, put them in a dump truck and brought 'em here," freshman builder Shawn Lowe said. "We might have gotten leftover parts because we were freshmen," he joked later. All the students got the same basic load of parts, but there was some variation. They were free to trade among teams. That led to building strat...

Radical Feminist professor ordered to teach men [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 4 March 1999

Radical Feminist professor ordered to teach men College Press Exchange BOSTON (CPX) - Boston College Professor Mary Daly, who for 25 years has been teaching women-only classes, has been ordered to open up her courses to men, too. Faced with the threat of lawsuit, college officials told Daly in December that she needed to allow men into her courses on advanced feminist theory. They've had similar talks with the self-described "positively revolting hag" in the past. The college reprimanded her in 1974 and 1989 for her women-only stance, but the issue died down each time, school officials said. However, the latest round of complaints appeared headed to court, prompting school officials to insist that Daly change her ways because they don't give the school a "legal leg to stand on," a school spokesman said. Daly, who has taken a leave of absence, has refused and gone public with her protest. She defends her single-sex classroom, insisting that it allows women to feel freer to "r...

Huge spending spree gets underway for campaign 2000 [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 4 March 1999

Huge spending spree gets underway for campaign 2000 By Ceci Connolly, The Washington Post The 2000 presidential race is developing into a mammoth spending spree, with Vice President Gore aiming to raise a record $55 million and two other candidates considering giving up federal money so they can spend unlimited sums. Gore, who has been holding a series of private dinners with top fund-raisers, plans to exploit every available legal loophole to collect far more money than the basic spending limits allow. An intimidating war chest, his strategists assert, will scare off other Democrats and give him an early start on attacking the ultimate GOP nominee. At the same time, advisers to two Republicans, Texas Gov. George W. Bush and Malcolm S. "Steve" Forbes, say they are weighing whether to opt out of the system that gives primary candidates partial federal funding. That would let them spend as much as they want in pursuit of the nomination. "It's totally out of control," said Stan...
