Fall out of the Gap and find your true self! [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 8 October 1999

Fall out of the Gap and find your true self! "Musings..." Kate Galley Everybody in Vests. Everybody in Cords. Everybody in Leather. Do you see a pattern developing here? Hopefully by now you know that 1 am talking about the latest Gap commercials. I am frightened of these advertisements, you should be too! Seeing the ads for the first time wasn ' t a big deal. New Gap ad, whatever. However, after seeing it 487 times in one week. I started thinking, "Who are these kids and why should I dress like them?" Each time a new ad came out I heard more and more people talking about them, "Have you seen the latest Gap ad?" Honestly, why should we care about all the new and neat ways the Gap is trying to suck our money out of our pockets? Or is that really what they are trying to do? Alter the second and third new ads came out is when 1 really stalled to ponder the real meaning of these kids singing to me. Was it really to sell me clothes? At this point I don 't believe that anymore...

Shooting Straight... In The Foot [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 8 October 1999

Shooting Straight... In The Foot by Bill Thompson October 06. IW> Knight-Ridder New spapers Voters derive some definite benefits when they elect a candidate who is nut a professional politician. For one thing, a nonpolitician officeholder is probably no worse than even money u> he a crook, whereas a pro is odds-on. Another advantage of electing nonpoliticians is that they may not have to hire pollsters lo find out what they think -- and may actually say what they think if the opportunity presents itself. The major disadvantage, on the oilier hand, is that an officeholder who lias not attended the Politicians' School ol Advanced Political Correctness is likely to express opinions that some — many? -- people find offensive. Can we say "Jesse Ventura," boys and girls? As the governor of Minnesota wrestles with the latest round of controversy caused by his breathtaking candor, residents of the Gopher State who didn't vote for him - and probably some who did -¦ must...

Is there really freedom of religion in America? [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 8 October 1999

Is there really freedom of religion in America? We are living in a sadly misguided society. Here I am referring to the recent decision by the NCAA commission to ban Team prayers. Now, I'm not trying to be some holier-than-thou bible thumper, but this ruling is, in my view, unconstitutional. I fully believe that, in the United States, we are entitled to freedom ol religion. I am also fully against a person or organization forcing religion upon an individual. I have witnessed such instances, and they do not end on a positive note for either the pusher or the pushee. However, I do not feel that team prayer is a violation of anyone's freedom of religion. The ruling should prohibit mandatory team prayer, perhaps, but it should not penalize those teams who wish to participate in a pregame prayer. Those players who do not wish to participate for whatever reason could take the few extra min utes to focus and gel psyched up for the game. They' re not having religion forced upon them;...

College life isn't what you're used to [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 8 October 1999

College life isn't what you're used to In regards to prev ions letters about the "man " on campus who is giving students a lot to talk about. "Who are they to judge what another person does with their life'.'" Not once did society say that you must be the same sex throughout life. What does it matter that someone wants to change the way they look.' Day in and day out. everybody changes the way they look So what if somebody decided to change their sex.. Why does it bother Christian Darling and Ray Morelli so much that they have lo comment on it? Taken from a psychologist viewpoint: if this person was so insecure about the way he looked, he would not be in public p laces, such as a college for people to look at him. He knows people comment on his appearance, and even thoug h some are regressing back to the caveman ways, move on from ridiculing him. Are your lives that sad that in order to feel good about yourself you choose to make comments on the person who is different fro...

Are you as tolerant as you perceive yourself to be? [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 8 October 1999

Are you as tolerant as you perceive yourself to be? While reading Ray Morelli s letter to the editor in your recent edition I was appalled at the things he said. While thinking of what 1 was going to say I spent a lot of time trying to figure out a way to avoid sounding like an offended-psycho-feniinazi-biscxual. This is not an attack on Mr. Morelli, 1 am simply trying to point out that many of his arguments seem extremely Hawed. I give him credit for realizing thai no one deserves lo be ridiculed...this is true. Morelli also says that everyone deserves respect as a human being. 1 agree with that, too. 1 do not believe that saying thai this individual (whom I do not know), and people in the same situation are "troubled" is respectful and positive in any way. These serious issues that he feels these individuals should be resolving are being resolved. It is not damaging to society in any way, or to the person involved to admit that this person was born this way. It has been medi...

English-Metric mix-up is blamed for loss of Mars Orbiter [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 8 October 1999

English-Metric mix-up is blamed for loss of Mars Orbiter by Robert Lee Hotz Los Angeles Times NASA lost its $125 million Mars Climate Orbiter because spacecraft engineers failed to convert from English to metric measurements when exchanging vital data before the craft was launched, space agency officials said Thursday, September 30th. A navigation team al the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena. Calif., used the metric system of millimeters and meters in its calculations while Lockheed Martin Astronautics in Denver, which designed and built the spacecraft, provided crucial acceleration data in the English system ot inches, feet and pounds. As a result. JPL engineers mistook acceleration readings measured in English units of pound-seconds for a metric measure of force called newton-seconds. In a sense, the spacecraft was losi in translation. "That is so dumb," said John Logsdon. director of George Washington University's Space Policy Institute. "There seems to have emerged ...

CIA unable to precisely track Russian nuclear testing [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 8 October 1999

CIA unable to precisely track Russian nuclear testing by Roberto Sure The Washington Post WASHINGTON - In a new assessment of its capabilities, the Central Intelligence Agency has concluded that it cannot monitor low-level nuclear tests by Russia precisely enough to ensure compliance with the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty, which the Senate will begin debating this week. senior officials said Saturday. Twice last month the Russians carried out what might have been nuclear explosions at their Nov ay a Zemlya testing site in the Arctic. Bui the CIA found that data from seismic sensors and other monitoring equipment were insufficient lo allow analysts to reach a firm conclusion about the nature ol the events, officials said. The Russian government has assured the Clinton administration thai the tests involved only conventional explosives and that it has not violated its promises to abide by the unratified treaty, which prohibits nuclear tests. Senior congressional stalters were ...

Nuclear technicians employed illegal operations manual [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 8 October 1999

Nuclear technicians employed illegal operations manual by Sonni Efron and Valerie Reitman Los Angeles Times TOKYO -- The uranium processing plant where Japan's worst nuclear accident occurred was using an illegal operations manual that directed workers to save time by mixing a uranium solution in stainless steel buckets, and workers had been performing that procedure --cited as one of the causes ol Thursday's nuclear fission reaction — for four or five years, company officials admitted Saturday. The revelations shocked Japan Sunday. "This is completely unforgivable. I have nothing else to say," said Masaru Hashimoto, governor ol Ibaraki prefecture, where the accident in the town ol Tokaimura irradiated 49 people. "This is outrageous, or rather it's insulting." "Unbelievable!" declared a Sunday morning television talk show. Plant owner JCO Co. s head ol manufacturing.

Barry University professor says Financial Aid denied gays help perpetuate human race to drug offenders [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 8 October 1999

Barry University professor says Financial Aid denied gays help perpetuate human race to drug offenders by Steve Ruthaus Knight-Ridder Newspapers September 28, 1999 Psychologist Frank Muscarella, an associate professor at Barry University, has come to a conclusion that at first seems to be a contradiction: Homosexuality helps perpetuate the human race and other species. "The theory holds that homosexual individuals in early human societies may have helped close family members, cither directly or indirectly, to reproduce more successfully," Muscarella. 41, writes in a study to be published by the Journal of Homosexuality. "Thus, genes for homosexuality would have been passed on indirectly through relatives." Muscarella, who also wrote a recently published professional study called The Hontoerotic Behavior That Never Evolved, acknowledges his theory "Hies in the face of all contemporary thinking," but gives several examples in humans and baboons. In early times, young men and w...
