April 6, 2005 The University News 7 Arts & Entertainment Beautiful sights in Sin City, Shop comes up threadbare by FS Movie Reviewer Three of Frank Miller's violent, cynical graphic novels have been lovingly transferred to the screen by Robert Rodriguez in Sin City (wide release), an anthology movie that tells three stories of macho loners fighting evil and corruption in the gloomy titular burg. The result is a picture that is visually astonishing, employing every technique in the modern filmmaker's repertoire to repro- duce Miller's panels on film as ac- curately as possible. The glisten- ing black-and-white images, shot through with occasional shafts of color (mostly reds and yellows), are simply stunning. Unfortunately, the picture's eye-catching look can't com- pensate for its complete lack of content, especially over a full 124 minutes. The three stories are all just over-the-top retellings of the sort of hard-boiled detective stuff popularized in film noir, they don't offe...

April 6, 2005 The University News URES i 7 J3C animatedstardust.typepad.com It*-. rrw (H I l\ S IB r 1 by Michelle Padgett Contributing Writer It is happening in cafes, universi- ties, and subways across the nation. Thousands of women are picking up their needles and knitting. The face of knitting, however, has changed drastically in the past decades. Instead of stereotypical gran- nies knitting multi-colored afghans and itchy Christmas sweaters, this generation's demographic of knitters is more varied, trendier, and usually much younger. According to the Craft Yarn Council of America, the percentage of women ages 23-34 who knit increased by 150 percent last year. All over the United States, college-aged students and hipsters are knitting everything from scarves and handbags to cozies for their cell phones and iPod holders. In the forum dedicated to knitting, www.Craftster.org, people exchange ideas, talk about patterns, and share pictures of completed projects. Sarah Kantor, Crafts...

10 April 6, 2005 The University News Arts & Entertainment Northern and Southern artists show contrasts in sculptural styles by Justin Leland A&E Editor A Core Convergence, a collabor- ative exhibition between sculptors from Chicago and central Texas, opened Saturday April 2, in the gallery of the art history building. The exhibition features the work of six Chicago artists and four artists from central Texas. It is cu- rated by two of these artists: Terry Karpowicz from Chicago and Roger Colombik from Texas. The idea for a joint exhibition originated with Professor Phil- lip Shore, Assistant Professor in sculpture. Shore, a member of the exhibition committee, explained that he was curious about the contrast in artistic styles between his hometown of Chicago and his Cither home in Texas. Shore said that he knew artists from both areas. He convinced a couple of them to curate the exhibition and coordinate artists from their respective locations. The result became an exhibition...

April 6, 2005 The University News 11 Arts & Entertainment Eng ish pro essor gives reading o own poetry by Justin Leland A&E Editor Students recently attended A Night of Spoken Word that featured English professor Dr. Robert Dupree reciting his own past and recent poetry. Dupree came to the event pre- pared with a laptop and a projec- tor that displayed his poems on a screen, enabling his audience to follow along with his reading. Dupree's performance con- sisted of reciting a series of poems about various aspects and objects found in the home. Witty in rhyme and humorous in content, these poems took the form of riddles or elegies honoring the functions of household items. Sample lines from Dupree's Floor to Ceiling, a poem that de- bates the superiority of the ceiling over the floor, exemplify Dupree's characteristic dry wit. "All his bra- vado comes to little more / Than elevation to another floor." Other poem titles such as The Irony of Iron hinted at humorous tones. When ...

April 6, 2005 The University News 13 Commentary Oversimplifying Eucharistic theology misleads Catholics by Br. Joseph Van House ■ane Br. Abraham Frei Guest Columnists In his article Communion in the hand? The tradition speaks pub- lished Nov. 10 of last semester's University News, Matthew Schultz insisted in the strongest terms on the unacceptability of Catholics receiving the Eucharist in their hands. While there is no doubt that "communion on the tongue" is an old and venerable tradition and while study and reflection lead us also to conclude that it is normally preferable to "communion in the hand," there is still need for com- ment on Schultz's article. Its dramatic oversimplifications contribute to serious misunder- standings about the development of Church doctrine and prac- tice, further blurring the crucial distinction between a Catholic theology that knows and lives its tradition and a merely reactionary anti-Modernism. The article also imposes unnec- essarily upon the cons...

14 April 6, 2005 The University News Sports Wolverine Cusaek gives history of March Madness Michael Cusack Contributing Writer In 1992, a group of five fresh- men were trying to do the impos- sible. The Michigan Wolverines, led by their "Fab Five" of Chris Webber, Juwan Howard, Jalen Rose, Ray Jackson, and Jimmy King, had already done the near- impossible: they had survived March Madness and made it to the national championship game. Some sports writers believed a win over Duke would mark the most amazing accomplishment in sports history. It didn't happen. Michigan lost to the Dukies, and lost hard—a 71-51 final score. The very next year, the five were back, playing for the national championship once again. A year older and more experienced, they were bent on defeating the Tar Heels of North Carolina, cen- tered around the enormous Eric Montross. Michigan was still in it late in the game, and then.. .well, everyone knows what happened next. Every year there are "impos- sible" upsets...

Against some of the nation's premier division III programs, the Crusaders track team made its presence felt with several impres- sive performances. Freshman Kristin Gilles rep- resented the UD women at the Rhodes Open March 19. As the sole member of her team in atten- dance, she refused to let the Lady Crusaders suffer a shutout. Her throw of 32.84 meters in the dis- cus earned a seventh place finish and put UD on the scoreboard. The Crusader men also did admirable work. Sophomore Ed Hardy had a banner day, coming in sixth place in the high jump at 5'10"—a two inch improvement on his previous best. Hardy also posted a personal record in the 400-meter dash with a time of 54.92 seconds. Junior Paul Bayer also outdid himself in the 400-meter...

Universit Palla% ews Volume XXXIV, Number 21 University of Dallas, Irving, Texas April 13, 2005 Di sciplinary action sparks controversy by Lincy George News Editor A recent incident of alcohol poisoning and subsequent disci- plinary actions taken by Student Life have sparked controversy on campus, especially regarding the enforcement of the host respon- sibility clause. "Any student(s) hosting a party (either on or off campus) will be held responsible for the actions of or injuries to their guests arising from the negligent distribution of alcohol or illegal substances at the event," according to the Student Life handbook of 2004—05- Student Life cannot comment on disciplinary actions taken in the recent case because of the Family Educational Right to Privacy Act of 1974, John Grant, Student Life dean, said. But so far, one student has ad- mitted to being suspended for this spring and the next fall semester for providing the alcohol; the student's grades for this semester have been ...

4 April 13, 2005 The University News News our student authors receive Clodecott awards by Monica Tomutsa Contributing Writer This year is the first since 1987 that two UD student authors have tied for a Clodecott Outstanding Book Award. The contest began in 1987. The Clodecott Award is an en- graved medallion presented each year to the author or illustrator of the best children's book written as part of the Child and Young Adult Literature education course at UD. The Clodecott outstanding and honor awards were presented recently to four students. Senior Jennifer Crane, politics major, received an outstanding award for her book The Library Nighttime Jamboree! The book tells the story of library books that come to life at night. The book features Crane's own watercolor illustrations. The inspiration for the book came from a question a young boy asked Crane. "As I was closing the library last summer, [I met] a little boy who didn't want to go home. "Stalling for time, he asked me what ...

The student who bought the alcohol, however, said disciplinary measures were not enforced fairly; he has to suffer more serious consequences for providing the alcohol than the person, whose choice to drink resulted in his being poisoned by alcohol. The former student is currently appealing the suspension. "I was honest. I told them everything. If he [John Grant] is required to do this [enforce the supension], I understand. Now I can just hope for mercy from the per- son hearing the appeal. I think it [the suspension] was harsh because it has more life repercussions [than community service, write-ups, probation, etc.]. I'm losing health insurance, losing a job, and losing a place to live...plus my car insurance goes up."

0 April 13, 2005 The University News News Students complete Medical College Admissions rest by Andrew Nik Contributing Writer Next Saturday, April 16, some UD pre-med students will have completed a major milestone on their medical career paths. They will have taken the eight-hour long Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT) for the year 2005. The test is an important fac- tor in the admissions process for medical schools. Currently, the MCAT is admin- istered using paper and pencil in a multiple choice format, and tests knowledge of chemistry, physics, biology, organic chemistry, and verbal reasoning. Test takers will also write two essays. The exam is given twice a year; July 15 is the registration deadline for students to take the MCAT Aug. 20. The American Association of Medical Colleges (AAMC), however, has plans to change the format of the exam. By 2007, students will most likely take the exam on comput- ers. I his new format will reduce the score reporting time from 60 days to ...

Research from this study indicates a rise in unintentional fatal injuries related to alcohol, increasing from 1,500 deaths in 1998 to 1,700 deaths in 2001 among college students aged 18-24. The report also states that in both 1998 and 2001 more than 500,000 students were unintentionally injured whereas more than 600,000 were assaulted by another student who had been drinking. Another report (O'Neill, Parra, Sher, 2001) finds that 65 percent of college students reported drinking alcohol in the past 30 days. Empirical evidence shows college students drink—a lot. Dr. Amy M. Fisher Smith, psychology assistant professor, commented on college drinking habits. "One study (Nelson & Wittchen, 1998) reported that 15 pe...

April 13, 2005 The University News 11 Commentary D library grows, evolves to serve patrons effectively by Dr. Scott Dupree Guest Columnist Since this is National Library Week, it seems appropriate to say something about the role and the workings of the Blakley Library The library was once housed in Carpenter on the east end of its first floor. There were no com- puters, of course, nor even copy machines; and everything from book ordering to catalogu- ing had to be done by hand. In 1962 a separate library building was con- structed to house the whole operation. It still serves that function partially, though what was later to be called the Blakley building was soon outgrown; and in 1968 the collection spilled over into the newly-erected Braniff building. It is in the nature of librar- ies to grow. Despite the digital revolution, the amount of printed matter has not abated; on the contrary, more material is now printed than ever before. What has changed most radically is access. It us...
