Education Needed to Halt Spread of AIDS [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 24 August 1987
Education Needed to Halt Spread of AIDS By Jan Trovers "The safety of the herterosexual community is largely an illusion." This was one of the conclusions of a report on AIDS recently released by Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico. Long thought to be a drug addict or homosexual disease, AIDS, which is spread by the exchange of body fluids, is beginning to appear in heterosexuals. The report projects that within five years as many heterosexuals as homosexuals could carry the virus. Presently there are 36,058 reported known cases of AIDS in the United States, with an estimate that l.S million people carry the virus. Of these, 20,849 have died as of June 1, 1987. There is no cure at this time and according to the National Academy of Science, there is not a cure in the immediate future. Pennsylvania has 984 cases of AIDS. Experts predict that by 1991, 16,000 Pennsylvanians could have the disease. The danger lies in the situation that most of those infected with AIDS ha...

Clearing Up the Misconceptions There are many misconceptions about AIDS. In an attempt to make information available to you, we are reprinting the following taken from a pamphlet of the American Social Health Association. What is AIDS? Acquired ImmuneDeficiency Syndrome is a condition that breaks down part of the body's immune system, leaving the body defenseless in fighting off infection.

Snap Your Mac at Cap [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 24 August 1987
Snap Your Mac at Cap During this past summer an Automatic Teller Machine (ATM) was installed in the Bookstore. Anyone with a MAC card will be able to draw funds from his or her account. With the addition of the ATM, the check cashing services previously available in the Finance Office have been discontinued. Students are being advised by Don Plourde, financial officer, to consider establishing an account with a local bank which provides MAC card service because typically area banks have not cashed personal checks unless the individual has established an account. Arrangements have been made with the Jamesway Plaza Branch of the Homestead Bank to cash student payroll checks. The Finance Office will validate student payroll checks for this purpose. Other ATM locations are: Commonwealth National Bank, Brown & Union Streets, Cash Stream; Hamilton Bank, Giant Plaza, MAC; Homestead Savings, Jamesway Plaza, Cash Stream.
Graduates Finding Tight Job Market [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 24 August 1987
Graduates Finding Tight Job Market By Jan Trovers On the average, most college graduates across the nation are not landing jobs in their major within the first five months after graduation, according to a study released in August by the College Placement Council (CPC). Peg O'Hara, coordinator of career services at Penn State Harrisburg agrees with this assessment. "A few years ago I never thought I'd see the day when engineers would find it hard to get jobs," she said. O'Hara saids that while civil and structural engineering graduates are finding jobs relatively easily, electrical and mechanical engineers are not In addition, business majors are having a more difficult time finding jobs within their field of expertise. However, business majors are able to overcome this because they have more options than other majors, said O'Hara. O'Hara offered some advice to overcome the tight market. "Prepare yourself in the best way you can by getting experience while still in school. Tr...

The Jaded Eye: Movie & Television Reviews [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 24 August 1987
The Jaded Eye: Movie & Television Reviews By C.W. Heiser You are now in Boot Camp. Basic Training. This is how the movie, Full Metal Jacket, directed by Sydney Kubrick opens. It is hard to describe the bitter-funny pain I felt throughout the first third of this movie. I went through Navy Boot Camp and this is the rougher Marine Basic. But it rings true, if only because it is what all squids, and probably doggies, would extrapolate as to what it would take to make a Marine. It is the pure hell of having your personality broken down—and brought back up to the program. Kubrick has captured this process. The basic/ground of this movie at first seems chaotic, jumping from marching formation to rows of recruits shining boots, and then back to the formation, never letting use get intimate with any of the characters. At the beginning we have to work to get close to the people in this company, and it is the Drill Instructor who picks out the main characters for us. With an un...
Artist Nadya Brown's Works on Display in Gallery Lounge [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 24 August 1987
Artist Nadya Brown's Works on Display in Gallery Lounge Six Gallery Lounge art exhibits have been selected for the 1987-88 school year. The opening show will feature prints and paintings by Nadya Brown, a California artist who has recently moved to Pennsylvania. Many of the pieces in this exhibit allude to Greek and Italian culture and myth—pillars, architectural details and fragments of statuary. A strong sense of drama pervades her striking compositions which feature eccentric light sources and viewpoints. The artist states that her aim is to create an atmosphere of metamorphosis, energy transference, time and history. She works from photos she takes and from found objects she arranges in her studio. Before moving to Santa Barbara, CA, Brown taught in a variety of schools and colleges in the United States and England. Her work is autobiographical in that it draws from places she has been. In 1984 she researched Renaissance, Greek, and Roman architecture in Italy, Greece, and...

Let Us Get to Know You [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 24 August 1987
Let Us Get to Know You Jan Travers/Editor As the summer of '87 becomes nothing more than a memory, we return once again for that physical and mental anguish we call school. With this issue we celebrate the start of the second year of reorganization at the Capital Times. The first year was spent with a small dedicated staff putting out an issue every three weeks. We weren't big but we were dependable. This year we'd like to give you more for your money. We'd like to expand the size of each issue as well as increase the number of issues. However, before we can do this we must have your cooperation. We need more writers from every major and every experience level. Think about it.

While I'd be thrilled to personally welcome you to the student newspaper, I also recognize there are many different ways for you to get involved at Penn State Harrisburg. Without a doubt, we all know we are here for one reason—to get our deg...

To All Music Lovers [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 24 August 1987
To All Music Lovers By Joanna Bausch America is the land of the free. The people of the United States wouldn't accept the major backbone of all of our laws, the Constitution, until certain rights were guaranteed to each individual. Yet today certain groups of people are trying to take those rights away. They are trying to censor rock & roll. The main group of people who are trying to censor rock is a group called the Parents' Music Resource Center or PMRC. This group has also been nicknamed the "Political Wives" because most of their members are just that There is Susan Baker, the wife of Treasury Secretary James Baker; "Tipper" Gore, wife of Senator Albert Gore, of Tennessee, who is also a presidential candidate in the 1988 elections; Pamela Howar, the wife of a prominent Washington businessman; and Sally Nevius, the wife of the former Washington City Council chairman, just to mention a few. The PMRC proudly claims that they are not prejudice against rock because th...
Light Switches, Sofas, and Mr. X f s Stportcoat [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 24 August 1987
Light Switches, Sofas, and Mr. Xf s Stportcoat By Mark Keisling Ever notice the furniture around here? Me either. At least until today. It was funny. There I was in my usual fog, wondering why just about every room in this building has too many light switches and they're all in the wrong place, when I hail what can only be called a revelation-a furniture revelation. I was suddenly aware, brutally aware, of our irstitutional furniture. I still wondered about light switches especially whether or not the Provost's office has too nany light switches and they're all in the wrong place, but my thoughts were becoming more and more lucid and focused on furniture and furnishings. For instance, there's a picture of an ex-provost next to the office of the now-provost (the one with proper light switches.) There's actually seven pictures of ex-proyosts, but I noticed that the one guy (we'll call him Mr. X although his real name is Mr. Herpel) desperately needs a new sport coat. In fairne...

Third Stream to Present Jazz [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 24 August 1987
Third Stream to Present Jazz They've been called the best jazz band in Southcentral Pennsylvania. And their 13 year life attests to this. On September 13, 1987, Penn State Harrisburg students will have a chance to decide for themselves when Third Stream performs at 7:30 in the Sculpture Graden. In 1972, Tom Strohman and Jim Miller had a dream. They wanted to assemble a group of musicians to both play the creative improvised music they love, and communicate this love to their audiences. Over the years improvised music, or jazz, had been designated to a specific audience. Strohman and Miller felt they could combine the creative aspects of this music and still provide entertainment and an exciting experience for their audiences. Hence, Third Stream was born. Third Stream has appeared in numerous concerts and nightclub appearances as featured artists, and also shared the bill with Herbie Hancock, Stanley Turrentine, Chick Corea, Tower of Power, Jeff Beck, Barney Kessel, Livingst...
