The Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo is a tradition for which Fort Worth is famous. The rodeo is celebrating its 110^ run this year, but this year was my first taste of the western tradition. It might sound crazy to have live in Texas and never seen rodeo, but somehow the chance always passed me by. So this year 1 decided that I had to go and see if there was anything there that a college student would enjoy. It always interests me to find out how other people feel about events before I go. Letting a bunch of Fort Worth natives know that I had never experienced the famous show elicited many different responses. Some people, like sopho- ...

Admittedly, my first pick of a movie to see is a guaranteed good time. Either a good laugh, rousing excitement or darn good acting. Nothing thought provoking, thank-you- very-much, and certainly not disturb- ing. •————— End of the Spear is an adventure based on the true story of five missionaries who were mur- dered by an indigenous tribe in South Amcrica. Detailed in the 2005 documentary Beyond the Gates of Splendor, the story revolves around Steve Saint, the son of one of the slain missionaries, Nate Saint and Mincayani, leader of the Waodani tribe. Set in the Amazon jungle of Ecuador, Steve Saint nar- rates the tale of his father's quest to reach the Waodani, a violent tribe, known for their fierce fighting and hatred of outsiders.

'mm 2 February 8, 2006 The Rambler Did you get a good deal on your used books? Students explore other options when selling back used textbooks Lindsay Choice STAFF WRITER Many college students are trying to get more bang for their buck by selling their books back to online.Web sites and buy-back stores rather than the traditional route of selling back to the bookstore, but does it work? Students can now use avenues like Amazon or Half Price Books to buy back or purchase new and used textbooks. The reason for the sudden alternative means of book-buying and selling phenomenon is no doubt partly attributed to the rising cost for textbooks. According to iVashingtonpost.com, textbook prices have been rising at double the rate of inflation for the past two decades. "Since I started at Wesleyan, 1 can usually sell my books back for a "decent" price, but 1 always have about 2 books or so that they just won't take," said Whitney Allen, a senior English Writing major.

Thomas Klaasen, Wesleyan professor of eco- nomics and finance, grew up in western Lower Michigan. Growing up with a father who was a professor as well as an entrepreneur meant that he had a comparative advantage when it came to employment. "I was always painting signs for my father's advertisement company," Klaasen said. If he wasn't painting signs, he was sorting bot- tles for 10 cents an hour at Holland Bottling Company, a soft drink plant that his father owned. Though he was usually helping his father, when he did have free time he enjoyed going down to the racetrack and working on racecars. Employment was readily available, but his father always advised him that when it came to his care...

r t Campus Life February 8, 2006 5 The Vagina Monologues takes on taboo; fights violence against women and girls HThe Vagina Monologues is an out- jl standing novel that tells women's stories about their personal afflictions, opinions and fears of something many shy away from discussing. This novel addresses the issue of violence against women through Eve Ensler's inter- views. The language in The Vagina Monologues may seem harsh to some readers, but that is the point. Ensler takes the derogatory terms used to describe womens' genitalia and edu- _ cates readers on where the terms were derived from, giving women the power to reclaim the words. The book is the inspiration for V-Day; a day dedicated to increase awareness, raise money and revitalize the spirit of existing anti-violence organi- zations. V-Day generates broader attention for the fight to stop violence against women and girls, including rape, battery, incest, female geni- tal mutilation and sexual slavery," according to ww...

Wesleyan's junior guard Britney Helton was taken to the emergency room midway through the second-half to evaluate a possible broken ankle. Initial X-rays revealed no fracture, but Helton will be re-evaluated Feb. 3. In the first half, Wesleyan was able to hold the Lady Steers to just 22 percent shooting and went into half- time leading 23-18. In the final 20 minutes, Wesleyan was able to stretch their lead to nine at 41-32 with nine minutes left to play. Texas College would manage to cut the deficit to a mere three points at 47-44 with five minutes on the clock, but that is as close as they would come, as Wesleyan would go on to win the game 58-49.

For some, a career fair might seem nothing but a crowd of students wandering from table to table picking up brochures, but Sherri Mata, director of Career Services at Texas Wesleyan University and coordinator of the career fair, said the networking and introduction opportunities can prove invaluable. Students may simply acquire information or go so far as to interview. "It all depends on the employer," said Mata. "Some choose to interview on site, others accept resumes and forward them to their HR department, and still others require you to go online and apply." Some may wonder how great their chances are for landing a job as a college graduate. According to www.CollegeGrad.com, 2006 is shaping up to be a goo...
