8 October 1, 2003 Entertainment The Rambler Sundance Square boasts culture, socialization and safety I can't count how many times I have sat around complaining about not having anything to do. Homework, of course, is a responsible school-related option. Therefore, it is automatically beyond serious considera- tion as a worthwhile activity, and the wholly apathetic attitude of our student body concerning campus life yields few desirable forms of entertainment. While I'm sure there is never a short- age of exciting moments present in the surrounding community, it may not be the most appealing place to dwell in the eyes of most, on account of the ever-present threat of physical harm found in the bor- dering areas of our school. There is, how- ~" ever, a relatively safe haven in which an agenda-free spirit may roam and, simultaneously, expand his or her cultural threshold. Sundance Square, located between First and Sixth streets downtown, provides an extremely diverse cultural blend of ...

> ^ 2 October 8, 2003 News The Rambler Professor selected as counselor on national council to promote undergraduate research Jon Mendoza OPINIONS EDITOR Early last month, Texas Wesleyan chemistry professor Dr. Ricardo Rodriguez was elected to serve as a counselor in the National Council on Undergraduate Research (NCUR). Rodriguez will serve his term as a counselor in the chemistry division, which will work to promote undergrad- uate research in the fields of mathemat- ics and natural and social sciences. NCUR also works to promote student- faculty research predominantly in the undergraduate programs. "I am very pleased to be appointed to the council," Rodriguez said. He also said that through his posi- tion he would like to promote under- graduate research, but to make it a universitywide initiative, not just something specific to the sci- ences. "Now, I will be working at the national level to help find funding to do research in all aspects at small universities," Rodriguez said...

The Rambler Opinions October 8, 2003 3 Roy tragedy 75 percent funny, 25 percent sad It has never been part of the plan of human nature to have one animal domi- nate the rest of the world. However, humans have decided to chuck that notion and play god among men — er, animals. This eternal battle came to a head this week when famed illusionist Roy Horn, of the duo Siegfried and Roy, was mauled by one of their show's white tigers by the name of Montecore. This occurrence was both sad and funny to me. Maybe that makes me heartless, maybe it does- n't. But you, as a reader, are not better a judge of charac- ter than I, so 1 say deal with what I say or stop reading right now. Horn, who I'll call by his stage name of Roy, deserved it. And Siegfried better watch his back if he knows what's good for him. There is a line that must be drawn between entertain- —— ment and subjugation of other species. It is a little known fact that the white tiger serves absolutely no point in the grand scheme ...

4 October 8, 2003 Campus Life The Rambler New lighting project should improve security Nici Sandberg CAMPUS UFE EDITOR Wesleyan students may soon feel a little safer than they did before on what has always been a dimly lit campus. A preliminary project to get new lighting up around the SUB area is in the works as well as additional lighting around the entire campus. Director of Facilities Ken Dunson is in charge of the proj- ect. According to Dunson, much work has already been done on the lights surrounding the cam- pus. Dunson said that he and his crew have repaired 20 fixtures on campus and added two new lights around Dan Waggoner Hall, the education building. One fixture is on the hall's west side, with the other on the south. There has never been light- ing around the SUB, and this new project will change that, said Dunson. By adding additional light- ing around campus, Dunson hopes to "give students and security guards a sense of safety and to help overall security." The idea f...

The Rambler Sports October 8, 2003 5 Rams break school record with 23 goals in a game Nathan Mutchler STAFF WRITER The Wesleyan men's soccer team had a wonderful week of games. The Rams played one game in Dallas against Dallas Christian College and one at home on Martin Field against College of the Southwest. In the two games the team scored a combined total of 26 goals and did not allow a single ball to breach their goal. The Rams broke a school record on Tuesday when they defeated Dallas Christian College 23-0. The game started off well with Ricky Gallardo scoring in the sixth minute off of a ball from Travis Mauldin. After that goal, it was all downhill for the Crusaders of Dallas Christian College. Forty minutes later when the halftime whistle mercifully sounded, the Rams found themselves thirteen goals ahead. Christian Villasenor led the first half attacking frenzy with four goals. Mauldin and Mark Puente each added three goals to the Rams cause in the first half. Gallardo adde...

6 October 8, 2003 Sports The Rambler Golf team finishes third in Northeastern State University Classic Marc Nettles EDITOR-IN-CHIEF The Wesleyan golf team fared very well in the Northeastern State University Classic on Sept. 30 with three players in the top 20. Their third place finish was led by sophomore Reino Deetlefs. The Rams (287-306-299=892) were only one stroke off second-place finishing Central Missouri (293-304-294=891) and 22 behind tournament host and champion Northeastern State (285-300-285=870). Deetlefs, a native of South Africa and University of Texas at Arlington transfer, ended day one with the second-lowest round of the tournament as he tallied a 69. Only eventual overall champion Eric Moore of Northeastern State and Missouri Southern's Andrew Watts scored lower. They both stroked a 67 on the first 18 holes. Deetlefs, who finished the tournament with a score Kevin Millikan of plus-five, was joined by true freshman and U.S. Amateur qualifier Scott Sikes on the lead...

8 October 8, 2003 Entertainment The Rambler Wesley an Singers perform fall progressive concert Alex Vorse STAFF WRITER As if filling hard drives with meticulously- programmed digital music and handpicking the perfect sounds for Theatre Wesleyan's musical Assassins were not enough, Music Professor Jeff Walter has again gone the extra mile to take creativity to a new level in a famil- iar setting. The Wesleyan Singers' Fall Progressive Concert (Oct. 14-16, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.) melds a traditional, semi- formal choral concert with the personal, communal feel- ing of a progressive dinner. Various audiences around campus enjoy a concert while the progression happens with the singers. Promotional material for the choir's latest endeavor — a yellow doorknob-hanging card conceptualized by Walter and realized by choir manager Alex Vorse — reads like a room service menu from a fancy-schmancy hotel. Those reserving the Singers for a free, private con- cert choose a musical appetizer, entree, and...

2 October 15, 2002 News The Rambler Response, from page 1 ED...It's All Within Reach!" Both ads display their uni- versity's name, logo, colors and Web address, but something's missing from the second exam- ple. That missing component has caused several Wesleyan stu- dents to express dissatisfaction and concern with their school's new billboard campaign. Senior musical theatre major Emily Cherry works as communications and marketing associate and Web master for the North Texas Food Bank, a non- profit organization dedicated to eliminating hunger in the Metro- plex. She called the new ads embarrassing. "They make me question the supposed authority of the Communications Department and the Administration. I have spent several hours proof-reading my papers for English classes because my professors uphold a standard of excel- lence. Does the Communications Department or Administration have any standard?" The problem for Cherry and other students starts with the grammatically erroneous sl...

The Rambler Opinions October 15, 2003 3 Cookies or Cancer: Which would you rather have? It has long been prophesied that in our lifetime there will be a cure for AIDS, cancer, and heart disease. In the meantime, there are thousands of fundraising and awareness groups con- tributing millions of dollars a year to help fund these causes. This is good news for the millions of people affected by these illnesses, and encouraging for the millions of people who may contract them in the future. However, there is an inter- esting phenomenon sweeping the medical field that has con- tinued to baffle me for several years: Research centers per- forming experiments that seem to serve no purpose whatsoev- er. Don't get me wrong; point- less research is often times more fun than regular research. For instance, testing an ant's tolerance to open ___ flame or testing how much a crack-head is really willing to do for his or her addiction. I'll admit, yes, that is fun. But there are a few cases that sti...

Alpha Phi Omega, estab- lished in 1925, is a national service fraternity with a founda- tion based on the principle val- ues of leadership, friendship and service.

The Rambler Sports October 15, 2003 5 Rams' soccer falls to conference rival TAMIU, 4-3 Nathan Mutchler STAFF WRITER The Rams spent last week in preparation for, what was being labeled by the coaches and players of the Red River Athletic Conference, "The Showdown." "The Showdown" is the game featuring Texas A&M-lnternational University and Texas Wesleyan. Both teams were sitting atop of the conference at 3-0 going into the Oct. 11 game at Martin Field. After rain canceled the Rams' training session on Oct. 6, the team took to the field on Tuesday for a hard practice that left most of the team sore and tired. Oct. 8 was similar, and Oct. 9-10 saw the team slowing down their sessions to work solely on what they needed to do on Saturday for " The Showdown." Saturday morning could not come soon enough, because the winner of the game would essentially wrap up the RRAC regular season championship title. Both teams looked prepared for the game, which got under way quickly, as TAMIU att...

8 October 15, 2003 Entertainment The Rambler Blow off steam and dance the night away I don't know about the rest of my fellow collegiate chums, but amidst the busy schedule of class, volleyball, studying and work, I like to go out, blow off some steam and dance the night away. There are seemingly endless possibilities of nightclubs and venues to choose from in this area, whatever your style of nightlife. If you love to dance and are a brave male or a fun- loving female, the Village Station is a magnificent choice for you. Located off Oaklawn near downtown Dallas, this gay club is called Dallas' hottest dance venue. As you walk in, you see a maze of various bars, then a dance floor with platforms in the mid- dle for the more "showy" dancers, if you will. Don't feel like dancing? You can still have a fantastic time. Around the dance floor there are a few pool tables, rooms with half-naked men danc- ing and couches and lounge chairs upstairs to take it easy while you enjoy the bass and...

'c . 4 2 October 22, 2003 News The Rambler Downloading music for free: What is the issue at hand? Across the country people are facing the great tragedy that their years of downloading music without pav ing a cent may be over. Recently, the Recording Industry .Association of .America, having subpoenaed at least 1,000 Internet users for trading copyright music, filed lawsuits against 216 people for swapping music files. In all business-related material, the point is to make a profit for some company or cause. Currently, in the unsuperv ised sharing of files per- taining to music and media, the United States is being hit particularly harsh with copyright suits of infringement from the recording industry . Whether it is ethical to download and own these songs without paying a dime to the writers, performers, and industry employees is the question of the year. Yet, even with subpoenas and individual lawsuits against those who are being labeled as "providers," peo- ple will not back down...

The Rambler Opinions October 22, 2003 3 Heroism is in the eye of the beholder Heroism is a funny thing. As Americans, we are infinitely infatuated with the idea of proclaiming individuals as heroes. During the recent Persian Gulf Distraction, Army Pvt. Jessica Lynch was proclaimed a hero because she didn't die during an Iraqi ambush. For weeks, there were hourly updates on her status and medical condition. Meanwhile, at the same time in the city of Fort Worth, 1 managed to drive down Interstate 30 and achieve the same thing as Lynch: I didn't die. But did I get any news coverage? I feel that it is my turn, as an American, to proclaim a new "flavor of the week" hero. His name is Nathaniel Heatwole, a 20-year-old college student from Damascus, Md. Heatwole was in federal court this week for sneaking box cutters and bleach onto two Southwest Airlines airplanes on Sept. 12 and 15. He is being charged with carrying a dangerous weapon on a com- mercial airliner, which carries a sen- tence...
