Change of venue [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 15 April 1999

Change of venue Aview from the lighthouse Spring Fever, which has been scheduled for Friday, April 23, has been moved from its original location last year in the apartments to the area between Reed and Perry Hall. Student Affairs has decided that the affair last year was unsafe due to the fact that underage students were drinking with people from the apartments who were over the legal age. Many students, as well as S.G.A., have complained to Student Affairs. Ken Miller has stated that if no illegal activities will occur at the upcoming event, the location may be moved. However, the location has not been changed, even though many people are complaining. The issue is that the students and S.G.A. have been complaining about this location change for a long time and have had petitions drawn up and signed, and Student Affairs has failed to address the students' grievances. Thus far, Student Affairs has failed to find a reasonable solution. Instead, they have placed the event on an...

Welcome to the Multi-Cultural Council [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 15 April 1999

Welcome to the Multi-Cultural Council What You Talkin' Bout Willis WILLJORDAN What s the deal with discrimination? All of the views in this column are mine and I' m sorry if my views don't agree with those who read this. I have been talking with a few of my friends about this topic recently and I feel that it is worth discussing. To discriminate is to observe a difference or to treat someone or something with partiality. Discrimination has been around from the beginning of time. It has progressed through the many years and centuries. Discrimination has been geared towards women, blacks, Italians, Irish, Native Americans, homosexuals, and so on. What I can't understand is why so many intelligent people all over the world feel that they have to judge someone on their race, gender, or sexual orientation. Ever since the story of Adam and Eve, it seems that women have been one of if not the most discriminated against group in the world. Women are looked at as the weaker of the ...

Response to Mike DeSantis rDeiending the Beacon [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 15 April 1999

Response to Mike DeSantis rDeiending the Beacon Bitchin by Mike MIKE FRAWLEY After reading the letter to the editor that was printed in last week's issue of The Beacon, I feel the need to speak up and defend the paper and its staff. While Mike DeSantis has all the right in the world to state his opinion in the form of a letter to the editor, maybe he should have looked into the facts before beginning to rant and rave about the internal workings of the paper. While we do encourage constructive comments about how the paper could be made better, out and out attacks are uncalled for. I would now like to take the time to respond to Mr. DeSantis' letter and the points he feebly attempts to make. The entire beginning of Mr. DeSantis' letter was given over to the topic of change. I understand that he served as a member of the newspaper staff, and if he felt that he was run off the newspaper for trying to make changes. He is entitled to his own opinion. But as a member of the current...

Waz up now, Housing? [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 15 April 1999

Waz up now, Housing? Time to Comp lain NATALIEGAGUANO Now that the academic year is nearly drawing to a close, I have made several realizations concerning Behrend. Most of these pertain to Housing and Food Services, which, at this point, I am completely fed up with. The first realization I have made is that Bruno's and Dobbins need major improvement (and this is making a total understatement). I cannot tell you how many different times I was eating a salad from Dobbins and discovered a bug in it. I cannot tell you how many times other people have informed me that ants were crawling by the cherry filling (for pancakes) in Dobbins. And then there's Bruno's. I could go on complaining forever about them. The cheese on their pizza is never fully cooked, and their fries and hamburgers are almost always cold. They also have a poor selection of foods and drinks. For some ungodly reason, I had my faith in Bruno's and Dobbins that the food would become better. The second realization...

Is peace your every step? [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 15 April 1999

Is peace your every step? Miscellany, the Old Jalopy mmx HINKSON Are the stresses of the semester making you crazy? Does your mind feel cluttered? Perhaps meditation can help. I look at meditation as a way of cleaning the room in my head: throwing away the trash, putting things in the right places, and basically making it comfortable and better to live in. As my friend Kristi told me, "how easy things are when everything works." Meditation is one way of making yourself work. In his book Peace Is Even' Step: The Path of Mindfulness in Everyday Life (New York: Bantam Books, 1991), Thich Nhat Hanh writes that "peace is present right here and now, in ourselves and in everything we do and see. The question is whether or not we are in touch with it." The key is knowing that life exists in the present moment. The past is gone, the future is not yet here; now is the only time we have to really live. Conscious breathing is one of the most important parts of meditation. "Breathe, yo...

Amid time of spiritual reawakening, students turn to peers for support [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 15 April 1999

Amid time of spiritual reawakening, students turn to peers for support By Raymond Mccaffrey Knight-Ridder Newspapers COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - There was a laundry list of reasons why Randi Wilkerson drifted away from church when she went to college. First, she fell in with a wild crowd that loved to party. Second, she moved away from home, and her Christian parents. But mainly, like others her age, the 23-year-old thought church wasn't cool. "People think it' s boring," Wilkerson says. "That' s why I was rebelling. All the guys who went to my church were dorks. I thought, is this what I'm going to have to marry?' I'd never been exposed to cool Christian people." The term "cool Christians" might seem like an oxymoron. But for many people Wilkerson's age, being Christian and going to church is the hip thing to do. College-age students are undergoing a spiritual reawakening, experts say, and in turn, churches are scrambling to reach them. The result: More and more poster childr...

Michigan State's frats to ban alcohol [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 15 April 1999

Michigan State's frats to ban alcohol By Peggy Walsh-Sarnecki Knight-Ridder Newspapers ANN ARBOR. Mich. - Michigan State University fraternities are voluntarily banning alcohol at house parties after July 1. MSU is the only university in Michigan where all the fraternities on campus plan to ban alcohol, university officials said Tuesday. The idea is to put the focus back on scholarship and brotherhood instead of parties and drinking. "It's the beginning of a national trend," said Billy Molasso, director of greek life. "Only a handful of universities have taken this step." MSU's ban was recommended by the Alcohol Action Team, a coalition of university, student and community members working on ways to discourage binge drinking. MSU convened the coalition after a May / 998 student riot following the university's decision to ban alcohol at Munn Field, the students' favorite place for football game tailgate parties. University officials stressed the ban was voluntary. "It wasn't ...

Berkeley researchers sight first known 'spiral star' [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 15 April 1999

Berkeley researchers sight first known 'spiral star' By Chuck Squatriglia Knight-Ridder Newspapers BERKELEY, Calif. - Researchers at UC-Berkeley have discovered a pair of stars revolving in a celestial waltz that leaves a pinwheeling tail of cosmic dust in their wake. It is the first known sighting of a spiral star, and the findings, published Wednesday in the journal Nature, putting a new twist on the age-old image of stars as dots in the heavens. "There is nothing that we know of that looks like that," said John Monnier, a physics graduate student and one of the three researchers behind the discovery. "It's extremely exiting." The star in question is named Wolf-Rayet 104, and it is three times larger and 100,000 times brighter than the sun. Its distance from Earth, 28 million billion miles, shrouded the star in secrecy until telescope technology pioneered last year gave Monnier and his colleagues the clearest view yet of Wolf-Rayet 104. What they found shocked them. Wolf-R...

Georgia State students arrested for role in bomb scheme [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 15 April 1999

Georgia State students arrested for role in bomb scheme College Press Exchange STATESBORO. Ga. (CPX) - Five students at Georgia Southern University were arrested after they allegedly tried to plant a bomb on campus in an effort to divert attention from their planned attempt to rob the university's business office. Police found out about the plot and managed to dismantle the bomb before it exploded. No one was hurt, and nothing was stolen during the April 7 incident. Undercover officers at the scene arrested Michael T. Miller, Shane T. McKevlin and Jason W. Guest shortly after the trio allegedly put the bomb inside an enclosure for garbage and air-conditioning equipment just outside the university's recreation and activities center. The three students were charged with conspiracy to commit burglary and possession of an explosive device. Police arrested two other students, Matthew L. Foust, who didn't help plant the bomb, but whom police say conspired to commit the burglary,...

Woodstock '99 will jam in July [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 15 April 1999

Woodstock '99 will jam in July By David Hinckley Knight-Ridder Newspapers Bet on rain in Rome, N.Y.. the weekend of July 23-25, because that's when Woodstock '99 will bring a quarter-million people to the former Griffiss Air Force Base to see artists from Aerosmith to Rusted Root, Willie Nelson to Metallica and Sheryl Crow to Rage Against the Machine. About three dozen artists will play on two stages in all-day shows Friday through Sunday, with jam sessions from 1 or 2 a.m. till dawn. This mirrors the 1969 and 1994 Woodstock festivals, which became legends despite heavy rain and gate-crashing. John Scher, co-producer of this year's show and the '94 show, says "we're confident" that gate-crashing will be eliminated this time, in part because a 12-foot "art wall" will go up around the 250-acre site of the festival. The site also will have an art village, film festival, food courts, beer gardens, ecology displays, video walls and other features. The event will be filmed and tap...

Arizona faculty may consider warning labels for some courses [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 15 April 1999

Arizona faculty may consider warning labels for some courses College Press Exchange TUCSON, Ariz. (CPX) - Classes at the University of Arizona could eventually come with warning labels. The idea stems from the "Truth in Curriculum" bill recently introduced to state legislators. The proposal, tabled for this legislative session, is to require faculty at all public institutions to distribute syllabi and give detailed descriptions of topics that would be covered in each course. It would allow students to withdraw from courses without penalty if they determine that that they weren't given accurate course descriptions. The bill also would prohibit instructors from requiring students to purchase obscene materials. State Sen. David Petersen pushed the idea after receiving a call from a constituent who complained that her daughter enrolled in a course, "Women in Literature," without knowing it would include readings by lesbian authors who discussed female sexuality in explicit terms...

Gov. Ventura becoming 'Prairie Home's' constant companion [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 15 April 1999

Gov. Ventura becoming 'Prairie Home's' constant companion By Stephanie Simon, Los Angeles Times ST. PAUL . Minn. _ He likes to portray himself as meek and mushy, so bland, as he puts it, that he makes linoleum look like great art. But these days, Garrison Keillor has an edge to him. He's taking on Gov. Jesse Ventura. And his radio variety show, "A Prairie Home Companion," normally such a mellow mix, bristles now with insults directed the Minnesota governor's way: "You have the 1Q of a salad bar. " "If you were any dumber, we'd have to water you." "You couldn't pour water out of a boot if the instructions were written on the heel. This is more than just a personal tiff. This is a culture clash. Keillor is a Minnesota icon. An aloof, inward man, he somehow compels 2.6 million listeners to tarry in the on-air block party he creates every Saturday night, to listen to his stories and dance to his music and to feel as though they know him and he knows them, as ...
