Guest Column: [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 22 April 1999

Guest Column: A choice: international adoption Sooner than we think, many of us will settle down, get married, and start a family of our own. Having a child of your own is said lobe one of the greatest things a person will experience. Unfortunately, one out of every six couples experiences some sort of infertility. Today, couples have many choices: fertility drugs, artificial insemination, test-tube technique, ovulation induction, egg donation, or adoption, to help them have a child of their own. Approximately 130,000 annual adoptions occur in the United States. Only 11,340 of these children were adopted from other countries. International adoption is slowly growing as more couples and single parents become aware of the benefits and availability of orphan children. Adopting internationally provides a wonderful opportunity to start a family. In areas such as China and other Asian countries, the overpopulation problem is leaving an excessive amount of children without a home...

Letter to the editor: Employees defend Housing and Food [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 22 April 1999

Letter to the editor: Employees defend Housing and Food Dear Editor: There have been many articles in the Beacon this semester attacking Housing and Food Services. As an employee of Housing and Food Services, I would like to take this time to defend them. In response to last week's editorial entitled "Waz Up Now Housing." there arc several points I would like to make in defense. First, everyone complains about the food at Bruno's and Dobbins. Anyone who has ever worked in the food service industry would know that mass preparation of food tends to lose the home cooked quality. Since I live in the apartments, I don't eat at Dobbins everyday. Anyone who cooks for themselves on a daily basis realizes the monotony of eating the same thing all the time. At Dobbins, the menu rotates on a fourweek cycle. In addition, there are items such as the taco bar. baked potato bar, and sometimes cheese sticks or jalapeno poppers. Theme dinners are held about once a month, with different menu ...

Letter to the editor: Respect for recycling nonexistent [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 22 April 1999

Letter to the editor: Respect for recycling nonexistent Dear Editor: I am an avid recycler. Those who know me know how serious I am about this. Here at Behrend we have an excellent recycling program. Beside the waste cans in the hallways of all the buildings on campus arccontainers for cans and glass, and paper of many kinds. As I walk through our hallways, however, I notice cans, glass bottles, and paper in the waste cans, even if the recycling containers beside them are not full. This distresses me. I do not understand how people can throw recyclables away, especially when containers for these recyclables are right beside the waste cans. While it is true that recycling uses energy, it is also true that recycling saves many trees (which we need to breathe, literally trees and plants produce oxygen) and reduces the amount of trash that would ordinarily go to the ever-growing landfills. Every day I see people on this campus showing blatant disrespect for the earth and the env...

Gladly, would we lounge and drink By Malt Moss Daily Vidette Illinois State University Put down those yellow highlighters and number two pencils and pick up those remote controls and cerve/as. It's time for you all to acknowledge something that has taken me close to tour years to learn. This hidden truth about college life never would base uncovered itself were it not for a protrusion from a member ol the outside world. There I was - sitting at a dimly lit table in the coiner of one of the local establishments, exchanging niceties with my future boss and a couple of future co-workers. We had covered topics ranging from the Bulls and Las Vegas to ihc finer points about different types of liquor. The conversation had shifted to the topic of college when he, my boss that is, decided to drop the bomb. "Of course, you know lhat GPA doesn't mailer." What'.' "Yeah. I mean it looks nice on a resume and can help you gel in Ihc door, but do you honestly think you were all hired becaus...

My sober father [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 22 April 1999

My sober father By Zulay Dominguez Chinnos Knight-Riddcr Newspapers Please pardon my arrogance. In this scene I am 14 years old. My father is kneeling before me, holding my hands, sobbing and pleading: "Please forgive me. I promise that I'll never drink again." "Papa, you have made that promise many times before." "No, this time is forever. I promise you, my first born, that I will never, ever drink another drop of alcohol." "I'm sorry, but I don't believe you." I am confused. Not even 10 minutes ago, he was threatening me with: "Just wait until we get home. You'll be sorry for what you did!" What did I do? Nothing that merits mention, really. I simply had him arrested and jailed for three days. He had been drinking for two weeks, and the new school year was about to start. My three siblings were going to junior high and I to ninth grade. Leaving him home alone was not an option; he would have sold some of our meager possessions for a fifth of liquor. My mother, a teache...

Graduation '99: surviving student loans [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 22 April 1999

Graduation '99: surviving student loans By Diana Mccabe Knight-Ridder Newspapers Wally Wollangk got his college degree, but not his diploma. The 28-year-old Mission Viejo, Calif., man owes $3,000 in student loans to the University of La Verne, where he graduated in 1996 with a bachelor's degree in communications. He'll get the parchment only when he repays the loan. But looming ahead of him is an even bigger student debt, a $23,000 federal Stafford loan he defaulted on. Wollangk is learning what everyone with student loans should know: Their options for repaying those loans and the stiff consequences if they don't meet their obligations. Even before he graduated, Wollangk had been nervous about repaying his loans. Once out of school, he didn't land the broadcasting job he dreamed about and instead struggled to make ends meet with odd jobs. When the loan was handed to a collection agency, Wollangk was distressed. And when his $1,100 tax refund was withheld, he was shocked. ...

Olestra-based snacks give students a run for their money [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 22 April 1999

Olestra-based snacks give students a run for their money By Erin Smith Campus Correspondent - University of Wisconsin College Press Exchange MADISON, Wis. (CPX) - Many students who are consuming Olestrafilled snacks to cut down on their fat intake are paying for it later. Only a few hours later to be precise. They say they're making more trips to the bathroom these days because of Olestra. the wonder-oil developed by Proctor and Gamble and distributed in many products, including the awfully popular snack on many campuses, Lay's Wow! Potato Chips. To make a dent in the 774.000 tons of fat and salty snacks Americans consume each year. Proctor and Gamble developed the low-calorie, fat-free chips that it says are as crispy and tasty as the regular thing. The breakthrough was attributed to Olestra, and students have been scarfing down the chips ever since their national debut last year. But not without some regrets. "I thought they were very tasty, but they gave me diarrhea," Hol...

The scribe behind 'Sunscreen' vibe is chick named Mary Schmich [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 22 April 1999

The scribe behind 'Sunscreen' vibe is chick named Mary Schmich By Christine Talum College Press Exchange CHICAGO (CPX) - He might be a famous author 'n all, but Kurt Vonnegut didn't have anything to do with a song that's climbing the Billboard Hot 100 pop charts and likely to be the hippest tune playing at graduation celebrations this year. Someone who posted the words that were set to music and called "Wear Sunscreen" told all of his or her e-mail buddies that Vonnegut, the author of "Breakfast of Champions" and "Slaughterhouse Five," had delivered the spiel in a commencement speech at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. "Sing," Vonnegut supposedly said before moving on to other pearls of wisdom such as "Floss," "Stretch," and "Gel to know your parents." It's a nice story that never happened. But what is certain is that the e-mail landed in the hands of Australian movie director Baz Luhrmann ("William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet," "Strictly Ballroom"), who at the ti...

Tattoo for lunch, please: restaurant offers free food for marked customers [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 22 April 1999

Tattoo for lunch, please: restaurant offers free food for marked customers By Christine Tatum College Press Exchange SAN FRANCISCO (CPX) - Some people will do anything for free food. A Mexican restaurant is offering a lifetime of free lunches to the first 50 people who get a tattoo of its logo, Jimmy the Corn Man, a sombrero-clad mariachi boy riding a blazing corncob over the phrase "Flavor out of this world." All customers have to do is show a cashier the tattoo, which can be any size and on any body part, to collect their free meal. "We've decided to accept variations," said Marty Sanchez, whose grandfather established the eatery in 1927. "Some people really p lay up the corncob, while others go for a little different look." Since the offer was announced six months ago, 39 people have earned a permanent coupon to Casa Sanchez, considered by many to have the best chips and salsa in San Francisco. The restaurant is willing to extend its limit to see more women and Latinos sp...

Can the U.S. remain an economic oasis? [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 22 April 1999

Can the U.S. remain an economic oasis? By Jonathan Peterson. Los Angeles Times WASHINGTON _ Like a gigantic, multilingual Ilea market, the nations of the world are blending inexorably into a single, global economy. At least, that is what we are often told. Yet the striking contrast between boom times in America and hard times in much of the world underlines a different, less-discussed reality: In vital ways, the United States remains a nation apart, its prosperity based more on consumers in California than manufacturers in Malaysia, its financial health affected more by decisions in Washington than turbulence overseas. Even last year's financial disaster in Asia boomeranged into a benefit for most Americans, who were enjoying a seemingly invulnerable economic upturn. Worried about the far-flung perils, the Federal Reserve cut interest rates three times, and consumers responded with a euphoric binge. "Can the U.S. economy prosper just o...

'Star Wars' fans lining up for 'Phantom Menace' debut [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 22 April 1999

'Star Wars' fans lining up for 'Phantom Menace' debut By Sharon Waxman. The Washington Post LOS ANGELES _ The line for the first showing of "Star Wars Episode One: The Phantom Menace" starts behind Daniel Alter, age 17. who set up a folding chair April 7 in front of the Mann Village Theater in West wood. By now there arc a half dozen people behind him. But that's not the only line going more than a month before the May 19 opening of ihe most anticipated movie of the year. A kind of cyber-Woodstock atmosphere has descended on a rival line on Hollywood Boulevard, beside the entrance to Mann's Chinese Theater, where 30 people have set up pup tents and laptops in a steadily growing queue for the first screening. "Just wait until Sunday when the international crowd starts coming." promises Lincoln Gasking, the 22-year-old Australian organizer of this line. Already director George Lucas's "Phantom Menace", the first of three planned "prequels" to his blockbuster "Star Wars" tril...

Terror catches up with family in form of land mine [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 22 April 1999

Terror catches up with family in form of land mine By Marc Lacey, Los Angeles Times MOLINA, Albania _ They escaped a burning village in central Kosovo. They endured a two-day trek to the border. But terror caught up with seven members of the Berisha family, cold and hungry and crammed into a tiny car, 20 feet from the safety of Albania. In the early morning darkness Sunday, their white Opel subcompact drove over a Serb-laid land mine just outside the Albanian line, killing five family members, injuring numerous other refugees in the same convoy, and highlighting the extreme danger confronting the uprooted ethnic Albanians in flight from Kosovo. The death toll from the accident was minor compared with the mass killings reported elsewhere in the war-torn province of Serbia, Yugoslavia's dominant republic. But this was a family who had made it out of the battle zone along one of the main escape routes from Serbian aggression. Just ahead of them, in a muddy c...

McDonald's still serving happy meals in sad times [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 22 April 1999

McDonald's still serving happy meals in sad times By Bill Glauber, The Baltimore Sun BELGRADE, Yugoslavia _ It's not every McDonald's that features Serbian folk music, a target symbol in its advertising and a bomb shelter. But then, selling American fast food while NATO war planes loom overhead can be a risky business. Saturday, Big Macs returned to Belgrade's menu, as McDonald's reopened three restaurants some three weeks after 15 of its Yugoslav franchises were attacked by angry Belgrade citizens in the wake of NATO's bombing campaign. There was a time when the main McDonald's in Belgrade racked up as many as 17,000 customers in a single day, 2 million customers a year in two separate years, according to the director of the Yugoslav franchise. "This is how America is conquering the world, by food and McDonald's," said Dcjan Vladovic, a 36-year-old who was among the customers at the grand reopening of a cavernous, two-floor restaurant...
