Stereotypically Greek [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 18 March 1999

Stereotypically Greek By Michael Frawiey Assistant Editor What is a stereotype? Webster's dictionary defines a stereotype as, "something conforming to a fixed or general pattern." Now while I do agree that in some cases stereotypes that are given to certain groups are wrong, most people will agree that stereotypes do not grow up over night, and in some cases are well deserved. While I hate to keep the argument about fraternities and sororities going, I feel that I must reply to this ongoing discussion. While I may not be a member of the Greek family, I still feel that I am qualified to respond to the editorial my colleague wrote last issue (Going Greek; a lifelong enrichment, 3/4/99) from what I have seen and observed in my three years at Behrend. First of all, I do not want anyone to feel that I am anti-Greek. I have friends who are Greeks, and they are very nice people. However, I have never felt the urge to become a Greek. I have never felt the desire to suffer any archai...

Something we can all agree on : stricter gun safety laws [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 18 March 1999

Something we can all agree on : stricter gun safety laws The Critic JON STUBBS As the billionaire gun industry is being backfired upon with lawsuits of heartbroken parents and others who have lost loved ones due to accidental shootings, the NRA and other Second Amendment activists blame the owners of the weapons for not taking the proper safety precautions. So exactly what are the proper safety precautions? To name a few, adamant use of trigger locks, separating ammunition from the weapon, and never leaving a loaded weapon anywhere easily accessible to children all reduce the risk of having a family member become an accidental gunshot victim. These all sound like common sense. However, the Second Amendment guarantees the right to bear arms, not the absolute right to be free of stupidity. About 40% of all households in America own at least one gun. And considering that there are about as many guns as people in the U.S. (235 million), many households own ...

A Flower in the Garden of Life We all have the power [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 18 March 1999

A Flower in the Garden of Life We all have the power SHANNON WEBER Have you ever gone to a sporting event that you weren't too crazy about and wanted to be somewhere else? Then when you are in the company of the enthusiastic athletes, cheerleaders and fans, you were glad you came? I remember going to a game and how the enthusiasm from the cheerleaders went to the fans and then went to me. A complete change had come over me. I was glad I was there to cheer the team on. Cheerleaders aren't the only ones with enthusiasm, though. When was the last time you were enthusiastic about something? Maybe it was before going on Spring Break or working on a project. People in everyday life are enthusiastic about something. According to Jim Davidson's editorial, Enthusiasm: Power just waiting to be used, the point that we should not miss is that the magic power of enthusiasm is already there, with each of us, just waiting to be used. When we are enthusiastic, we can rise to new heights, ...

Gun users, not makers, responsible for safety [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 18 March 1999

Gun users, not makers, responsible for safety By Robert Funk Daily Kansan University of Kansas Two Brooklyn teen-agers recently were playing with a gun they had bought on the black market when one shot the other in the head. The wounded teen lived and sued the gun industry. A New York jury found several gun makers responsible for the accidental shooting. The decision, although controversial, opens the door to similar lawsuits in other cities such as Chicago, New Orleans and Miami. It's not really important to understand why the decision was controversial or to evaluate its value as precedent for future suits. It is important to ask why the jury blamed manufacturers for the actions of an individual. I'll make my point by telling a story. A boy started playing with toy guns (as many boys do), and his parents started to teach him the difference between toy guns and real guns. They told him that although it was OK to point and shoot play guns at the other kids, one must never do...

College senior wants to be Mayor of New York town [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 18 March 1999

College senior wants to be Mayor of New York town By Ryan Van Winkle Campus Correspondent - Syracuse University College Press Exchange NEW PALTZ, N.Y. (CPX) - This isn't your typical campaign headquarters. The walls are adorned with old New Yorker magazine covers impressionist art and posters of Budweiser babes. There's also a dartboard bearing a photo of Tom Nyquist, mayorof the village of New Paltz, N.Y., and arch-rival of the candidate who's name is plastered all over this joint: Russ Ferdico, a senior at Stale University of New York at New Paltz who, at the ripe old age of 23, wants to become the village's next head honcho. The race is shaping up to be the hottest one New Paltz has seen in years. While Ferdico's budget prevents him from conducting polls, he promises more voters will show up to vote than in the last six years. Not that that would be too hard to guarantee. In 1993, voter turnout was just 450 people. That figure dropped to a measly 34 voters in 1997. As the...

Plans to destroy last known samples of Smallpox virus debates [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 18 March 1999

Plans to destroy last known samples of Smallpox virus debates World and Nation By David Brown The Washington Post A plan to destroy the world's last known samples of smallpox virus later this year is threatened by the growing suspicion that secret caches of the microbe probably exist, increasing the chances it could fall into the hands of a rogue nation or terrorist organization. If thflt is the case, some scientists believe stocks of the deadly virus should be kept so they can be used to help develop antiviral drugs and a better vaccine against the disease, which was eradicated from the world in 1978. That view, however, is not universal, with some people saying that destruction of the known viral stocks would actually discourage the use of any pirated ones. Monday, an expert panel convened by the National Academy of Sciences Institute of Medicine will offer its opinion of the future scientific needs for the virus, which officially exists only at the federal Centers for D...

Bill to curb global sex traffic to be officially announced [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 18 March 1999

Bill to curb global sex traffic to be officially announced By Anthony M. DeStefano Newsday NEW YORK _ In an effort to battle the international sex traffic in immigrant women to U.S. cities such as New York and Chicago, legislation will be announced Tuesday in the Senate that is aimed at providing temporary asylum for the migrant victims and stopping federal assistance to foreign governments directly involved in the trade. The proposal is aimed at protecting the victims, notably from Russia, of the global sex trafficking networks that by some estimates have moved tens of thousands of women and children yearly across international borders for work as prostitutes. In a letter to his colleagues last week, Sen. Paul D. Wellstone, DMinn., one of the bill's two cosponsors, said trafficking into the United States is a rising problem and that the proposal would increase protections and services for women and children who find themselves in this country. "In particular, it seeks to st...

Peace Corps looks to increase diversity of volunteers [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 18 March 1999

Peace Corps looks to increase diversity of volunteers By Carol Masciola The Orange County Register LOS ANGELES, Calif. - America, really, is not much like the show "Beverly Hills, 90210." And the Peace Corps is on a mission to show that to the world. This week, Peace Corps recruiters are gathered to discuss ways to attract more minorities into the service, hoping to make the corps reflect the ethnic diversity of America. "We want to give a correct perception of what Americans are like. We are not a white, middle-class, homogeneous nation," said Charles R. Baquet III, Peace Corps deputy director. "Peace Corps volunteers can counteract the perception of Americans that people develop from watching Arnold Schwarzenegger movies and John Wayne movies." The corps is striving to have 25-30 percent minorities, compared with about 18 percent now. The recruiters, about 20 of them from Western states, are discussing ways to approach minority students and show them the benefits of joinin...

Professor accused of urging sexual topics for his speech students [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 18 March 1999

Professor accused of urging sexual topics for his speech students By Christine Tatum College Press Exchange SANTA CLARITA, Calif. (CPX) - Efforts by officials of College of the Canyons to resolve allegations of sexual harassment against one of the school's speech professors failed miserably when nationally renowned attorney Gloria Allred showed up at a board of trustees' meeting with a camera crew. Allred, who focuses on women's rights, announced March 10 that she's representing Kelly Friscia, a sophomore at the college who claims to have been subjected to sexual harassment by a professor who repeatedly encouraged his students to deliver sexually graphic speeches. Allred accused the professor of creating "an offensive and sexually charged hostile environment" as addressed by Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. Allred outlined her client's complaints at a press conference before taking them to trustees. She said the professor assigned his students to give various sp...

Stanley Kubrick had died in his sleep the night before of " a heart attack in his London home. Seeing a Kubrick film was more than an evening out, it was an experience.
