The University News Features October 31, 2001 7 Internships help students plan future by Patty McPeak Contributing Writer Going out into the world of the work force after graduation can be a scan endeavor for a college student. Endless possibilities and uncertainties may be unset- tling for those students about to graduate. Perhaps the question "What do you want to be when you grow up?" can no longer be answered with "a princess" or "a firefighter" as it was in those childhood days. Several students at UD are planning ahead for their future after college by taking advantage of the opportu- nities and credit offered by internships. "We want to get the word out that these opportunities do exist," Harriet Cousins, associate director of under- graduate business programs and coordinator of intern- ships, said. One example of a student that has been an intern is senior Andrew Glicksman, who did his internship last summer for his Business Leaders of Tomorrow concen- tration. His internship...

12 October 31. 2001 Sports The University News Cross-country teams have good showing at USCAA meet by Bobby Crook Contributing Writer For the Crusader cross-country teams competing in the United States Collegiate Athletic Asso- ciation meet Oct. 27 at UD, one runner emerged as the leader of the pack. Junior Brooke Boothe garnered All-American honors with her outstanding performance, finishing in second place with a time of 22:10 "Brooke did awesome,'' sopho- more Leslie Currie said. "She has worked really hard to improve over the season, and for her to fin- ish second against such tough competition is just great." Buoyed by Boothe, as well as freshman Melanie Bartush and Currie, who finished ninth and eleventh, respectively, the women's team finished second overall behind a strong team from Southern Virginia University.

The University News News October 31, 2001 13 Astronomy Mayterm to star-gaze in Colorado by Patty McPeak Contributing Writer Astronomy classes in Colorado will be offered for the first time during Mayterm this year, Dr. Ri- chard Olenick, professor and chair of the physics department, said. Dr. Olenick will sponsor the four-credit course that will take place this summer, May 21-June 5. "Why would you want to do astronomy m Colorado? The ma- jor reason is the skies are very dark, and the light pollution here in Irving limits the labs that we can do," Dr. Olenick said at an informational meeting last Thurs- day. Students will stay in cabins in an isolated town called Pitkin in the western slopes of the Rocky Mountains at an elevation of 9,250 feet above sea level. Because the town is surrounded by national parks, the course is a unique opportunity, Dr. Olenick said. "It's pretty, quiet, restful, and you can commune with nature," he said. Classes are conducted every day except Sunday at...

The University News Commentary October 31, 2001 15 All's fair in terrorist war? U.S., terrorists held to different standards Anna Smith Guest Columnist Dear Mr. Bragman. I don't presume to speak for the entire UD politics department, but I would like to thank you for joining our party, even though you are a little late. Your com- mentary last week was indeed en- lightening as to the state of stu- dent opinion here at UD. You expressed your concern about what seems to be the new national tendency, given recent events, to put matters into a very black and white perspective. Actual ly, when one is in a state of war, things do be- come a bit more black and white. We have been attacked, and our time would be better used in employment other than sitting around wondering why on earth anyone would want to at- tack us. It seems to me that there is a bit of a double standard circulat- ing in today's view of foreign policy. I hear all the time Ameri- can heads of state should not re- sort to v...

The University News Arts & Entertainment November 7, 2001 5 Senior artists improvise, challenge time, space by Michael Lyons A & E Editor Restricted Release, an exhibi- tion of spontaneous works by the 12 senior art majors, opened with a reception last Friday night in Haggerty Upper Gallery. Restricted by time and space, the exhibition, according to the artists" mission statement, is de- signed to reconcile the artists" "spirit of community" while at the same time expressing their indi- viduality. The result is a collage of works in media ranging from soap cubes to staples to saran wrap. Because of the somewhat un- usual nature of the media used by the artists, an explanation of the way in which they were collected and distributed is in order. First, each artist chose three materials. Then, in the spirit of a Christmas white elephant part, the selected materials were distrib- uted among the artists by the drawing of lots The seniors re- convened Nov. 2 with their ran- domly ...

The University News Arts & Entertainment November 7, 2001 7 Tori Amos promotes latest album, true to roots by Julie Danaher Co-Editor in Chief Tori Amos" sold-out concert at the Bronco Bowl last week ca- tered to the older, dedicated fans. Her Strange Little Girls con- cert, part of a national tour to pro- mote her latest album, opened with the second song from her al- bum of the same name playing in the background: the haunting cover of Eminem's '97 Bonnie and Clyde. The song played before Amos came out on stage with a ragged curtain suspended above the stage. As soon as the last drumbeats ended, the curtain fell dramati- cally to the floor; and Tori walked out, bowing to the crowd. Tori has often said she listens to the audience at her concerts and plays the songs the energy from the crowd suggests. Her bow to the audience suggested this gath- ering of energy. Among the 20 numbers she performed were a number of her older songs that focused on the piano music. There were only a...

8 November 7, 2001 Features The Unive Problematic Potter: Is Harry harm u Psychologist, educator say probab Part one of three: An examinination of the Harry Potter books and controversy surrounding them. by Bekki Johannes Features Editor He has been in almost every major magazine in the country. He has been in almost every school and inside every young mind over the past few years. And next week, he will be on the big screen. Though Harry Potter has captivated the hearts of children everywhere, he has failed to win the hearts of many adults around the country, and the contro- versy surrounding his books has raised a few eyebrows in the world of education. "I think part of the reason it's controversial is because it deals with magic, and some people automatically interpret magic as always bad or evil. I just don't know that that's always the case; it really depends on how it is used in the context of the story," Dr Amy Fisher Smith, professor of psychology, said. Dr Smith teaches psy...

10 November 7, 2001 Sports The University News Hot Sports Opinion Decisions leave manager open to question by Jack Price Sports Editor Baseball is a talking game. That is a credo of Dallas sportsradio's The Hardline. It is also, perhaps more than any other sport, a game of second- guessing. These two characteristics go hand-in-hand. You watch a game, talk about what has happened, what might happen, and what, therefore, should be done next. Then you watch the game un- fold and begin talking about how you were right or how the strat- egy should have been undertaken differently. These crucial realms of fan par- ticipation were working at full capacity all day and night last Wednesday, as fans debated con- troversial decisions prior to game ( Click.

I 2 November 7, 2001 Commentary The University News EDITORIAL 'Music on the Mall' lacks musical talent "Music on the Mall" has taken a downward turn. In previous years there was a "no boy band rule." What happened to this rule, and why on earth was it abol- ished? It used to be a time that all students enjoyed and anticipated. Friday afternoon one would come out of class and hear music playing. It was great fun. But now, looking out across the mall on a Friday af- ternoon is like a scene from a ghost town. One half expects to see a tumbleweed rolling across in front of the tower. There are fewer people on the mall on Fri- day, when the music is playing, than any other after- noon. It can only be concluded that the poor selection in music is to blame. Milli Vanilli and Spice Girls are not vastly accepted as excellent music by the UD community. We just ask that the Programming Board Sound Com- mittee make some music selections that are more popu- lar with the student body, because at ...

The University News Commentary November 7, 2001 13 'Islamic Night' nothing more than attack on Western cultural ideas, student says Ryan Chism Guest Columnist A group of Islamic Ameri- cans gave a presentation last Tuesday night advertised as Islamic Night: Pillars of Faith and the Islamic Creed. Like many students who attended the talk, I expected a discussion of Islam contra those who are be- hind the terrorist at- tacks of Sept. 11. Or, in other words, I expected a case made for what Presi- dent Bush, Oprah Winfrey, and other public figures call "peaceful Islam" or "our moderate Is- lamic Allies" as op- posed to militant or radical Islam re- sponsible for terror- ism. This rather essential dis- tinction, I thought, was curi- ously absent from the lecture. In its place was a discourse on the superiority of Islam over Christianity and the West. Two Americans who had converted to Islam in col- lege opened the lecture by saying, "Unlike the Western conception of religion, Islam is aw...

14 November 7, 2001 Commentary The University News Students still fuming over smoking issues Emily McManus Guest Columnist I read Mr. Amorella's letter last week concerning the smok- ing issue around the Braniff building. I must say that I was thoroughly ap- palled. I understand that he is entitled to his own opin- ion, but frankly, I think that he obviously is ig- norant in the matter and has absolutely no idea what he is talking about. The school is trying to prevent our students from future health prob- lems. It is not sanitary for tons of smoke to en- ter the Braniff building. Do you know the health risks involved? Do you have any idea how the non-smokers on this campus feel every time a puff of smoke is blown in our faces? It is not like you are forbidden from smoking on campus. John Russell has said that smokers will have special des- ignated areas - which is giving smokers more than they need. I think that smoking should be abolished at school. It does not reflect well on our...
