Arts & Entertainment 12 —October 30, 2007 The University News Compelling Baby, Charming Girl," Mushy Rendition FS CONTRIBUTING WRITER Gone Baby Gone Nh L.- Ben Affleck makes an auspicious directing debut with "Gone Baby Gone" (wide release), in which his brother Casey also gives a strong lead performance. Based on a novel by Dennis Lehane ("Mystic River"), it's about the investigation that follows the kidnapping of an angelic- faced little girl. Affleck plays the neighborhood shamus hired by the family to find the child, which brings him into a tense relationship with the police on the case, who include Ed Harris and Morgan Freeman. But the picture is more than a mere procedural. Though the first hour is like a solid television program with a powerful dose of local Boston color, the second takes a convoluted turn that raises serious ethical issues. And while the twists can strain credulity, they also give the piece a compelling dramatic undercurrent. The result is one of the mor...

The University News October 30, 2007 — 13 Foreign language film series Enjoy it while you can! Eileen Casey A&E EDITOR The Foreign Language Film Series has presented films Thursday nights at 7 p.m. in Lynch Auditorium since mid September, and will continue to do so until the first week of December. Besides the fact that students can come and watch entertaining and award-winning movies for free, it is a great opportunity to learn more about other cultures and to practice their language comprehension skills. In the words of Dr. Jacob- Ivan Eidt, assistant professor of German and Comparative Literary Traditions and head of the Film Series, "These films are shown in order to give us perspective on the way we view other cultures through movies. It also forces us to think how other cultures view Americans through movies." The Foreign Language Department selects films that content-wise are synonymous to what students are learning in class, typically historical or social topics. However...

ommentary 14 —October 30, 2007 The University News Planet in Peril" misses facts, raises questions Bennett Rawicki COMMENTARY EDITOR CNN's special report "Planet in Peril" was a yawn, and one with no nightmares in its wake. After months of powerfully vivid advertisements proclaiming impending planetary doom with the infamous issues of deforestation, overpopulation, species loss and climate change, the hard-hitting expose of mankind's atrocities on Earth began with a cute baby elephant. The elephant hurt its foot on a poacher's snare, but amidst world peril CNN followed the elephant through its entire recovery process in the kind hands of the Wildlife Alliance. Anderson Cooper, lead investigator on this report, did show the horrible pollution in China's rivers and the hardships of fishing in the desert-bound Lake Chad in Africa, but to call it "peril" was a little much. The most frightening part of the program was when Anderson learned his chemical levels were higher than 95% of Amer...

The University News October 30, 2007 — 15 Gorbachev brum misrepresents university Chris Wolfe CONTRIBUTING WRITER UD tailed to demonstrate intellectual and spiritual traditions Ordinarily I do not like to get involved in politics, but after attending the McDermott lecture series featuring former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev a few weeks ago, I felt my political nemesis tear forth like a ravenous lion. To be frank, it was a disaster. I blame the school and Gorbachev for what was a supremely poor showing on the night of Oct 8 This complaint will not have been made on the basis of America being "the greatest country in the world" nor on prior knowledge of Mr. Gorbachev's career. I criticize Gorbachev and the university based on what was actually said, on the facts. The fact is, the University of Dallas showed no indication of the intellectual and spiritual strength of tradition which constitutes the most important part of this school. The area in which UD was most at fault was in ...

The University of Dallas Alumni Association and Board of Trustees established the award in 1989 to honor alumni whose post-graduate lives have embraced and applied the qualities UD fosters through its educational principles.

The University News News Novmber 6, 2007 — 5 PROVOST from page 1 big question." To do this, Hibbs said, faith and reason must both interact to formulate relevant questions; an interaction which he said is currently diminishing in too many schools. After he graduated from UD, Hibbs said he noticed that many people prefer to regard education, and the intellect, as a merit badge on a resume, rather than as an instrumental part of a person's vocation. Hibbs concluded by saying that a university should be the unity of majors and discourses, humanities and sciences, which, through collaboration, benefits all who participate. Dr. Lydia Voigt Dr. Lydia Voigt, the Distinguished University Professor and Chair of the Sociology department at the University of Loyola in New Orleans, appeared on campus Oct. 10. She later withdrew her candidacy for the provost position. Dr. Don Nieman The third provost candidate, Dr. Don Nieman of Bowling Green State University, visited on Oct. 17. Nieman is curre...

Sports 8 —November 6, 2007 The University News Going a different (fen)way Three professors come to grips with the rapidly-changing fortunes of th eir favorite team TC Fleming SPORTS EDITOR Fandom's a strange beast. Any but the sunniest of fans will admit that the very design of it means that it will bring far more pain and loss than can be possibly offset by the brief satisfaction it occasionally doles to the lucky. Baseball demands that 29 sets of fans end their year knowing that they failed utterly at their one goal, So why do it? Why care? Professors Frank Doe, Tom Jodziewicz, and Richard Dougherty cheer, support, and believe in hopes that they will have the chance to experience agai n the euphoria they felt on the night of Oct. 28 2007. For the average baseball fan—and certainly the fans of the Colorado Rockies—that night holds little interest. The season-long favorite and owners of the second-highest payroll in the sport finished off a generally boring series remarkable only in...

The University News November 6, 2007 — 9 Record setting seasons abound Mike Hasson CONTRIBUTING WRITER UD athletes have been setting records furiously for the last two weeks. Sheilah Jennings, captain of the volleyball team, broke the all- time record for most kills in a season. Freshman volleyball star, Celina Farrell, set a new single- season record for blocks. On the men's side, soccer forward, Adam Lunger, continued a year of accolades by breaking the all- time record for career points. "I thinkthese records carry less significance for us as individuals but more as something that's demonstrative of a change in philosophy at the University of Dallas," Jennings said. Jennings, a senior, shattered the previous record of 1,078 kills, finishing the season with 1,090. A kill is a hit that directly results in a point for your team. Jennings performed this remarkable feat playing with a shoulder condition that has worsened over the last two years and may require surgery to repair. In th...

Arts & Entertainment 10 —November 6, 2007 The University News Ambitious "Gangster/' boring "Bee/' better "Kid" FS CONTRIBUTING WRITER American Gangster Ridley Scott's epic-length "American Gangster" (wide release) aims to be a "Godfather"-!ike saga but comes across more like a super-sized episode of the old "Untouchables" television series. It's a true-life tale about a Harlem hood who becomes king of the heroin trade in the 1970s but is ultimately brought down by a straight-arrow cop who's been chosen to head a federal drug-fighting task force. The picture is certainly well crafted, and it boasts lead turns by two of the most imposing leading men working today. Denzel Washington brings his usual authority to the title character, and Russell Crowe is all nervous energy as his Eliot Ness-style pursuer. But though it conveys a strong period feel, "American Gangster" never digs very far beneath the surface. It wants to be a classic, and is instead merely a slick entertainment. If y...

The University News November 6, 2007 — 11 Sky Wizard casts a spell on UD Eileen Casey Colleen Sweeney A&E EDITORS SkyWizard performed at TGIT last week on Nov. 1 from 9 p.m. to midnight at the Rathskellar. During sound check, the members of the band were kind enough to tell the University News a little about themselves. "SkyWizard" is an unusual name and suits the unusual members who chose it because it "sounded cool." Eric Haney played an influential role in the creation of this celestial name, but he was unavailable for comment at the time. The band crowded the stage with six members who included: James West, rhythm acoustic guitar and singer; Chris Gur- guis, electric bass guitar; Alan Charnock, drums; Ben White, harmonica and keyboard; Blake Montgomery, lead electric guitar; Beau Lyon, guest member and lead electric guitar. They adver- tised their performance with flyers reading, "Come see the almighty SkyWizard. All souls invited." Half of their songs were cov- ers of bands...

Commentary 12 —November 6, 2007 The University News " he trials of trying terrorists Bennett Rawick COMMENTARY EDITOR In the string of worldwide terrorist attacks over the past six years intelligence agencies have been incredibly successful at arresting the culprits, but far less successful at convicting them. The last living mastermind of the 2004 Madrid bombings that killed 190 people was recently acquitted on all counts, escaping all punishment. In Indonesia, an Al-Qaeda leader was involved in attacks that killed 202 people in a Bali hotel. He was released after only one year in custody. In Dallas this past month, four leaders of the Holy Land Foundation (HLF), a fundraising organization that donated $12 million to the terrorist group Hamas, were acquitted of all charges and the proceedings were declared a mistrial. An FBI agentwho aided in the prosecution of the Dallas terrorism fundraisers explained that the government knew that HLF was funding Hamas and succeeded in shutting i...

The University News News November 13, 2007 — 3 College Republicans sponsor pro-troops party Irish Beutler CONTRIBUTING WRITER The University of Dallas College Republicans sponsored a pro-troops party on Thursday afternoon next door to the Cindy Sheehan lecture. The event began earlier in the day with students passing out yellow "support the troops ribbons" on the mall. At 3 p.m. over 110 students, most donning their yellow ribbons, entered Gorman Lecture Hall to hear a lecture about "The Liberal Biases on Other College Campuses." The room was decorated with the colors of the American flag and balloons carpeted the floor. Shortly after 3 p.m., the room overflowed with people talking, eating pizza, and drinking from the root beer keg.
