4 November 21, 2001 Arts & Entertainment The University News U D bands, chili cook-off heat up mall, students by Katherine Cook Commentary Co-Editor Musicians, chili chefs, and t-shirt designers all com- peted Saturday on the mall at Battle of the Bands. Nine UD bands competed for the three available slots in next April's Mallapalooza. A panel of 10 judges, com- posed of faculty and seniors, made its decisions from a table inside the beer garden. The battle began at 4 p.m. with the funk band Flap the Wicked Prophet, which gave its first UD performance. Next was the angelic duet of Annie and Lori, who have played at several Capp Houses this semester. Cat Carpeaux followed with her band Will to Flower. Then J.P.N.J. brought Aerosmith covers to the Mall. The Larry Mitnaul Project, a UD favorite, played at 8 p.m. The band has expanded since last year to include Lizzy Cowan on piano and Dr. William Germann on tram- X A ? ° pet and valve trombone. Band members announced they would be ...

I) November 21, 2001 Arts & Entertainment The University News Varied studios enhance experience by Meghan Kuckelman Contributing Writer This semester's senior studios will run from Nov. 29 to Dec. 5 this year and will feature plays from a wide variety of genres. The experience of producing the plays has been posi- tive for both the directors and actors. "I'm enjoying them immensely," Mandy Stigant, who is co-directing All in the Timing with Ragan Butler, said. Stigant and Butler chose their play based on a sugges- tion by the drama department, finding the variety of comic sketches a worthy challenge. All in the Timing is a series of short sketches, each com- pletely different from the others, but all involving the con- cept of time. Each director will oversee three of the sketches. Butler, who said she prefers physical comedy, will di- rect the sketches titled Words Words Words, Foreplay or the Art of the Fugue, and Mere Mortals. These three sketches will explore, respectively, ...

November 21, 2001 Features The University News Professors say Potter's principles are compatible with Christianity. by Bekki Johannes Features Editor Many people have condemned the Harry! Potter books as being connected with the Satanic Occult. Other people believe there is a connec- tion between the books and the religion known as Wicca. And still others believe that Wicca is part of the occult. Dr. John Norris, chair of theol- ogy, denied all of these allegations as being the result of misinformation and misunderstandings. "That would be like saying Bewitched is somehow Satanic. Yes, these people have special powers, but they're not in any ways dark magic powers; it's not really very much different than if they were good at prestidigitation," he said. Dr. Norris explained that Wicca is a religious belief in which partici- pants are like nature witches in a sense because they believe they have the ability to somehow become transmitters for the powers of nature. "Wicca recognizes th...

The University News Features November 21, 2001 9 tudent's New York City trip turned pilgrimage Editor's Note: Andrew Rozario visited New York City a few weeks ago on invitation from the Coen Brothers for the opening o/The Man Who Wasn't There. He relates the devastating effects he saw in the city and in the people after the collapse of the World Trade Center towers. by Andrew Rozario Contributing Writer All Americans witnessed the World Trade Center Towers collapse, but most have not seen the de- struction first-hand. Even at DFW Airport I felt weary. After passing through the metal detectors, security checked all carry-on bags and the guard swabbed mine with a white patch on a rod. Then I had to walk by the pacing fully-armed soldier. I could not read at my terminal because of the perpetual CNN coverage overhead that played commercials with patriotic melodies while different voices of all ages said, "I am an American." Fewer than 20 people boarded my flight to New York City. The fl...

Q November 21, 2001 Commentary The University News EDITORIAL Christmas spirit degrades every year It seems as if Christmas comes earlier every year. Maybe this is only the case because we are no longer children anxiously awaiting the moment we can sit on Santa's lap and whisper in his ear how we want a new doll or a set of legos. However, it does not seem that this is the only reason. Last week a few radio stations began playing Christmas mu- sic. Traditionally, there is nothing wrong with carols. Actu- ally, there is nothing wrong with good carols. But the music they play every year is getting exponentially worse. How many versions of Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas must we suffer through? Even good Christmas carols have their place, and that is in December or even after Thanksgiving if you are of a liberal mindset and get really moved by the yuletide spirit. Arguably, Christmas is one of the greatest holidays. People seem to be that much more cheerful, and even though there...

The University News Commentary November 21, 2001 11 Journalism or sensationalism? Studio director discredits JB coverage Nathan Landry Contributing Writer Kudos to the series of contri- butions in the Arts & Entertain- ment section of the News regard- ing the sophomores" Job-like struggle to have their talents real- ized by UD. I say "sophomores'' and not "sophomore drama ma- jors'' because some of those in- volved in JB were not drama ma- jors, rather much appreciated par- ticipants in departmental produc- tions until this semester. How is it possible that such tal- ent should go unnoticed? Some- thing this atrocious must have been an oversight or some other horrible accident. It could not be deliberate, could it? — Well, unfortunately the se- niors mistakenly believed themselves to be cunning enough to pull off a coup of this magnitude. The University News must be lauded for its fine sleuth- mg in uncovering and bringing to light this diabolical scheme. Now that the truth is o...

December 5, 2001 Sports The University News Crusaders struggle, drop three straight at home by Jack Price Sports Editor UD's men's basketball team suffered its third straight defeat at home Saturday, fall- ing to Concordia University-Austin, 88-79. UD started the game by jumping to a 14- 0 lead, but some hot Tornadoes shooting got them back in the game and up by one, 39-38, at the half. There were several lead changes in the second half, but Concordia outscored the Crusaders in the final period to secure the win, shooting 11-24 from be- hind the arc. "We're struggling right now," head coach Brian Stanfield said. 1 can't explain it." The Concordia game was similar to most of the Crusaders' contests thus far; they did not play poorly, but the victory slipped away in the latter part of the game. "We started off great with a lot of en- thusiasm," sophomore forward Shane Lungwitz said of the Concordia game. "We just let them back in." UD, now 1-4 on the young season, also lost to Mary Ha...

The University News Sports December 5, 2001 ^ Hot Sports Opinion Wild college season winds down by Jack Price Sports Editor Fans of college football are in luck this holiday season as there looks to be a slew of good bowl games and plenty of contro- versy (as usual) over the BCS system. There are anywhere from five to eight teams that have a legitimate claim at being contenders for the national title. But, there is only one spot left in the national cham- pionship Rose Bowl now that Miami locked up their bid by finishing as the only undefeated team in the country this side of the Great Salt Lake. This looks to provide us with, if nothing else, the most competitive BCS bowl games since the system's inception. This season has already given the two most exciting, upset-laden weeks in recent memory the past two weekends. In fact, five of the BCS s current top 15 have lost in that span. In particular, I want to focus on two of these classic games that made a significant impression on me ...

News December 5, 2001 9 r ug, sword-fighting falconry strobe lights by Katherine Cook Co-Commentaiy Editor Once upon a time, Dallas residents entered a magical world of jousting, falconry, and chivalry, just minutes away from downtown. Medieval Times takes the concept of dinner theater to an entirely new level. The evening begins w ith a trumpet heralding the diners into the main hall where everyone sits, and the show begins. The first display of Medieval pomp and strength, the Andalusian stallions, considered the most noble horses in the world, take the spotlight. Following the stallions is a demonstration of falconry, the noble art of training a hawk to hunt. After the falconer wows the crowd, patrons finally meet the knights of the realm. There are six of them: red, black and white, yellow, blue, red and black, and even, for fans of Sir Gaw ain's tale, a green knight. The knights perform games of skill for the audience, such as removing rings with the lance while riding, hitting ...

The University News Features December 5, 2001 11 Associate provost no more . . . ] Jovinski becomes new historian by Meghan Kuckelman Contributing Writer When talking about the UD core, the UD faculty, students and community, Sybil Novinski's eyes light up. She speaks of helping students find the right path to their major and the rewards she gains by watching them grow into the magnanimous people they are supposed to become. She loves UD, as she says, like a mother. Novinski arrived at UD with her husband, art profes- sor Dr. Lyle Novinski, in the fall of 1960. Dr. Novinski had worked with one of the founding Cistercians at the University of Wisconsin and was hired to help start the UD art department. Novinski became part of the UD staff three years later, initially editing a newsletter for the Cistercians. She later took the positions of associate academic dean and registrar. For about the past seven years, Novinski has worked as associate provost for UD. In this position, she does...

[ 2 December 5, 2001 Commentary The University News EDITORIAL Pre-game party not fun for everyone In theory, UD only stood to benefit hosting the UT-Colorado pre-game party Saturday. The advantages were largely finan- cial: Aramark, no doubt, made a profit catering the event. One would hope the packed parking lots were yet another major source of revenue. And campus ""nonprofits," especially the j unior class, were handed a major fundraiser working the concession stands. In practice, however, the event presented major costs to the dorm residents, from broken bottles to sexual harassment. And unless the administration greatly increases security, they should seriously evaluate the benefit of hosting such an event again. Not surprisingly, the intoxicated football fans did not restrict the pre-game party to the fenced-off area. They brought it to the parking lots near the residence halls and left it on the dorm lawns in the form of broken glass, beer bottles, and even a barbecue pit in ...

The University News Commentary December 5, 2001 13 Another conspiracy unveiled: Painter oi light Burn 'em. by Michael Lyons A&E Editor The holiday season is upon us, the students of the University of Dallas. As Christmastide ap- proaches, our thoughts will un- doubtedly turn to the brightly wrapped packages we expect to find tucked neatly under the boughs of our families" concrete (as opposed to abstract) expres- sion of holiday cheer, i.e., Christ- mas trees. On the appro- priate morn, we shall wake with anticipation and exuberantly re- move the shiny wrapping from the arbitrarily-shaped apparatuses hous- ing gifts, the re- ceipt of which we have ever-so-ea- gerly awaited. There is a particu- lar gift, however, the receipt of which we should not anticipate. "What can this be?" one might ask. "Surely, such a gift cannot exist." Indeed, one does. Moreover, this particular gift is of such an insidious nature that, before I re- veal what it is, the reader must observe patience and ...

g January 30, 2002 Sports The University News Crusaders use winter break to begin turnaround by Jack Price Sports Editor UD's men's basketball team fell to East Texas Baptist Univer- sity Thursday night, snapping the four-game winning streak on which the team rode out of he win- ter break. The Crusaders came out of the break with a 6-10 record that re- flects the progress the team has made toward meeting expecta- tions. "Obviously winning shows some sign of progress, but we've really been playing good basket- ball lately," head coach Brian Stanfield said before the ETBU game. "We feel the team is finally meeting expectations. This is how we hoped we were going to start the season." UD lost, 74-65, Thursday de- spite a 28-point effort by junior swingman Bill Sei. Sei was 11 out of 15 from the field, including three three pointers, and he was perfect in three free throw at- tempts. Going into the contest UD had won its previous four games, three of which came on the road. The Crusader...

The University News Sports January 30, 2002 9 Hot Sports Opinion Upon further review, rules need some reviewing Price by Jack Price Sports Editor The NFL's divisional round of playoffs produced one day of inspired and down- to-the-wire competition. The next day left us with a pair of very lopsided contests that put a serious damper on the seasons of the reign- ing champs and a future Hall of Fame quarter- back. This first set of matchups also left the league with some unde- sirable fallout that pro- vides some fodder for discussion around the proverbial water cooler and in columns like this one. The issues at hand are the very contro- versial fumble/incomplete pass call that sunk the Raiders' playoff ship on the snowy Saturday night and, more recently the $35,000 fine levied against Philadelphia's Hugh Douglas. The NFL, though, is in fact directly re- sponsible for the existence of both of these issues because of its inconsistent interpre- tation and application of sometimes-cloudy ...

10 January 30, 2002 Commentary The University News EDITORIAL Office errors cause registration angst UD registration always raises problems for a majority of students. Registration day is full of business office errors, the failure of communication between the financial aid and busi- ness offices, and the simple fact that students don't make the cleared list even after their bills are paid, A poll of The University News staff revealed that half of us never received spring tuition bills. Unless they targeted us specifically - which is doubtful - this error affected a ma- jority of students. Many students have complained about the inefficiency of the busi- ness office and the financial aid office. Students have been forced to pay several visits to obtain the coveted green clear slip required for registration. Errors are also found from the registrar's office. Last fall several spring Romers from 2001 found themselves enrolled in Rome classes all over again, in Rome. Most were charged R...

The University News Commentary January 30, 2002 11 Clinton assigned unwarranted blame Katherine Cook Commentary Co-Editor All I hear every time there is a national problem these days is that it's Clinton's fault. He has become little more than a national scapegoat. Everyone from Rush Limbaugh to mainstream media have blamed him for everything from the failing economy to the weather to the terrorist attacks. This last accusation is by far the least grounded in reality. If any blame could be doled out for the terrorist attacks, which is questionable, it belongs to the members of the GOP in the 1996 congress. In 1996 the Clinton adminis- tration proposed a terrorism bill in memory of the Oklahoma City bombing. The key points of this bill were as follows: to re- strict the appeals process for death row inmates, to fund study of chemical markers in explosives and to expand wiretapping. After much debate in the con- gress the GOP removed two of these key points. The study of taggants in e...
