The University News April 18, 2007 Sports • • ' • '..J - •- • I • -- iPf^SlSi i? IK? ■ ' ^'C^EyS TC Flemming "S CONTRIBUTOR tolen bases [are] the name of the game. One stolen base is one hit." So said Coach Chris Strockbine in a conversation last week. Intrigued by his emphasis on the base-stealing game, this aspect of this year's Crusaders bears further analysis. It is known among learned observers of baseball that the number of total bases stolen is not so important as the percentage of times those steals are successful. If a player has 30 stolen bases but attempted to steal a base 60 times, he has not helped his team at all. Actually, he has hurt them. Men bent on knowing every tiny statistical detail of every minor and major event on a ball field, known as Sabermetricians, have executed lengthy calculations looking at every possible situation and the number of runs a team can expect to score in those situations. These calculations, of course, vary from league to league, since nu...

There was no live music, but there was a live DJ, Dallas renowned Brandon Qlds. University News A & 3 editors were lucky enough to receive an unplanned interview with Mr. Olds.

8 The University News April 18, 2007 Commentary Selection Presidentiele Fran?aise De 2007: Sego VS. Sarko...VS. Bayrou? Chris Black | CONTRIBUTOR Something big is about to shake up French politics. On Sunday, April 22, French voters from Brittany and Burgundy, Provence and Gascony, Corsica and Tahiti, Martinique and Paris, and all throughout la Patrie will cast their ballots for a new President de la Republique. Why is this particular election such a big deal? First of all, France has been in need of a political makeover for a long time. The current president, Jacques Chirac, is 74 years old and is widely unpopular. Having been president for 12 years and either prime minister or mayor of Paris since 1974, the French feel it is time for someone else to lead their nation. There are two larger-than-life frontrunners. Representing the center- right UMP (Union pour un Mouvement Populaire) is the former Minister of the Interior, Nicolas Sarkozy, a relatively young upstart whose fame took ...

The University News April 18, 2007 Q Commentary The olitics of the 'olar Bear A nrf Bennett Rawicki CONTRIBUTOR & Newsstand covers proclaim "A Threat Graver than Terrorism is Upon Us." This threat guzzles carbon dioxide, has it out for the polar bear, and has told A1 Gore that it plans to raise sea levels 20 feet. You guessed it, the much discussed and little understood, global warming. The science behind the issue is not "as certain as gravity" like Gore claims. The prominent theses claiming human-caused climate change do not account for Nature's temperature control: rain. If the Earths temperature rises, more evaporation occurs creating more clouds and precipitation, which cools the Earth. Without this mitigating factor included in climate change models, results are skewed to the extreme. This is merely one of many disputes in the scientific community, and it seems as if every study (including the U.N. study) has scientists lining up on the other side to disprove the results. ...

In November of 1989, peaceful and prayerful protestors gathered in the thousands, face to face with soldiers, but the order to shoot the protestors never came, and the wall was torn down. "Gorbachev didn't intend to give them freedom, but, at the end of the confused and joyous night, the wall came down. ls|o one planned it, and yet no one was shocked.

Randy Budderibohn Contributing Writer Propeller lag aside, the team checked into their hotel to rest for the following week's activities. Last-minute preparations were made. Whether it was cleaning their clubs or night-chipping, the Crusaders felt ready for their test. The next morning's wakeup call came early, and the team headed to the course. After an hour of frost delay, the tournament began. The first drive of the Crusaders by Randy Buddenbohn hit a tree and careened back into the fairway — it looked as though Lady Luck was smiling on the Crusaders.

April 25, 2007 The University News^ Sports NHL Playoffs get lower ratings than Dog Show RJ Karas Sports Editor editorial It seems as though the sports world is in an awkward state of unimportance;. As the flowers blossom and the days become longer there is very little to get excited about. We have found ourselves sandwiched between the end of the NCAA tournament and the beginning of the NBA playoffs. The nation is fighting to make it through the slowest six weeks of the year, NHL playoff season. Unlike the weather, it seems as though sports is suffering through a long, arduous drought that has taken its toll on anyone and everyone in the sports community. Not only are fans impatiently waiting for the dog days of summer so to are players and officials in the major sports. Just last week Joey Crawford, who was considered from all accounts to be a level-headed NBA official, challenged San Antonio Spurs center Tim Duncan to a fight after ejecting him from a game against the Dallas Maver...

3 April 25, 2007 The University News An Actor's Perspective sis You Uke It directed by Dan Forsythe by Touchstone, aka Donny Covington For an actor, the play's the thing. A theatrical production is the consummation of months of work, and a lifetime of acquired skills. Even for those who are affiliated with the technical aspect of a show find themselves as deeply invested as the actors. As such, I find myself in a fairly unique position, both as a lead in the upcoming production of As You Like It and as one of the set constructors who can be found in the theatre on any given afternoon sawing, drilling, painting, or otherwise keeping busy. However, I find that it is the thespian aspect of my current double existence that bears the most weight in my daily goings on. Shakespeare is an infinitely interpretable playwright, and the actors in his production must constantly explore and develop their roles in order to make the most of the text. Under closer scrutiny, seemingly straightforward...

10 Apr il 25, 2007 The University News Student Response Exploiting an Emergency The Delusion of School Safety A Mike McMahon Bennett Rawicki Commentary Editor Contributing Writer ■ I don't think there's too much to say about what happened last week in Virginia. Commenters on a Google group devoted to Rush Limbaugh did, however, have some great things to say. Things that, you know, get to the heart of the situation while they inspire those better angels of our nature. It's interesting how the worst in someone — some deranged student — brings out the worst in everyone. Please read ahead — I won't fault you for not making it all the way through the quote, though. " 1 .Cho said he hated rich Americans. That is typical of class envy and democrats. 2.Cho said he hates American society. Again, that is typical of socialistic, communistic democrats. 3.Cho planned every detail of his attack. 4.Cho attacked the USA because of his hatred for America.

Perhaps more progress would be made in our human interactions if we began our conversations thinking, "I do not fully know the Truth, I wonder what this person can teach me about it." This doesn't necessarily require a relativistic approach...
