The University News November 20, 2007 — 9 Women's basketball off to sizzling start Crusaders come out on top in Austin College iournament Meghan Frost CONTRIBUTING WRITER Despite their youth, the 2007-2008 Crusader's women basketball team are not shying away from any challenges. The team, consisting of only three returning seniors, one junior, and nine freshmen proved to be no pushover in the Bob Mason Tournament at Austin College in Sherman, Texas. UD opened their season against Macalester College on Friday, Nov. 16, 2007, followed by Curry College on Saturday, Nov. 17. In both games the Crusaders demonstrated heart and passion.

ommentary 10 —November 20, 2007 The University News he decline of attention spans in the U.S. Nick Olson CONTRIBUTING WRITER Now that I have your attention, I'd like to address the epidemic that is now plaguing the youth and adults of modern society. Try not to turn to the comics just yet, for this disease may already be affecting you and your loved ones! I realize it may be difficult, nay, impossible, to retain your attention for the span of 400 words, but here to captivate you are some shocking statistics! According to David R. Godine, Inc., only 32% of the U.S. population has ever been inside a bookstore. According to a 2003 article by Publishers Weekly, the average person spends 2.1 hours a month reading. And according to Jerrold Jenkins of the Jenkins Group, 80% of U.S. families did not buy or read a book last year. And while these statistics are probably very skewed and total lies, they did get you past your hundredth word. Congratulations! Upon reading these statistics, I fir...

The University News November 20, 2007 — 11 "he danger of a burqa Different perspective on prayer piece Colleen Sweeney A&E EDITOR A woman in Holland protesting against anti-veil laws or the "burqa ban" holds a sign, "the veil is women's liberation." This commentary is not interested in delving into whether governments should outlaw certain religious or cultural garments, but rather, it addresses the notion of safety that Jessica McLeod's thought-provoking sculpture embodied. A veil can be liberating, just like an empty and secure room can be liberating. The dweller can say or do anything they want without being judged, challenged, or confronted, but an empty and secure room can also be a jail. I am tired of people being afraid. I know we live in a world that can be frightening and dangerous. We live in a world that, at times, can make even the bravest person want to run for cover or hide under their childhood security blanket, but we are on this earth to live, and not to hide. I...

It appeared in a live fashion show along with the pieces of four other sculptors, "Modern Warrior" by Donny Covington, "A Superflous Ornamentaion" by Jeanne Luthi, "Nike in the Shower" by Margaret Henderson, and "A Little Like Christmas" by Chelsea Davis. McLeod's piece was created with squares of red fabric, written on by UD students with black permanent marker, and sewn together to form a veil that covers the entire body. It is intended to resemble an Islamic burqa. To create the piece, McLeod set up a table in Haggar foyer and asked passer-bys to write a thought or a prayer for a person in trouble on a red square. McLeod emphasized to the participants that their thought or prayer didn't have to be ...

"Senior Studios are the equivalent of a senior thesis for drama majors," technical directorTristan Decker said. "They are a culmination of all the classes the seniors have taken so far, like acting, directing, staging, and are applied to directing and producing their own show." There are two sets of Senior Studio performances— one in the fall and the other in the spring. According to Decker, this is done because the seniors must work with the same pool of actors and stagehands for the productions of eac...

The University News News December 4, 2007 — 5 ISI discussion critiques liberalism and naturalism Mary Schuhriemen CONTRIBUTING WRITER The UD chapter of ISI, the Intercollegiate Studies Institute, invited John Grant to speak on "The Condemnation of Liberalism and Naturalism by Bl. Pius IX and Leo Xlll* The discussion was held on Wednesday, Nov. 28, in Gorman D. John Grant focused the discussion on Pius IX's encyclical, "Syllabus of Errors/' and Leo Xlll's "Humanum Genus." These two popes, he said, were largely responsible for revivifying the conservative movement in Europe in the 1800s. Describing the situation the popes faced, Grant said that the French Revolution had spawned a murderously anti-Catholic attitude across Europe that continued even after the age of Enlightenment had drawn to a close. This attitude was prevalent even in Catholic kingdoms. As an example, Grant cited the suppression of the Jesuits in 1783 by the Catholic French monarchy. When Pius IX assumed the Chair of ...

Sports 6 —December 4, 2007 The University News Men's basketball team rolls over Principia with ease TC Fleming SPORTS ED/TOR The Crusaders showcased every strength they have in picking apart Principia at the Maher Gymnasium on Wednesday night, winning 81-57. UD won the opening tip and every meaningful point of contention after that. Sophomore guard Jeff Pritchard turned the tip in to the game's first shot. He was off- target, but junior guard Anthony Garrett's accuracy worked just fine, scoring two on the put-back. The two points were the first of 11 straight UD scored to open the game, highlighted by five from Pritchard. Principia found their first points of the game when forward Reeves McLaughlin put in a shot from under the basket while drawing the foul, putting the score at 11-3. Responding to this scoring threat, UD came back with 13 more in a row with senior center Joe Packard contributing six points and a board. The race was on, with UD leading, 24-3. Principia assembled thei...

The University News December 4, 2007 — 7 Jerry Jones making all the right calls in Cowboys' run FC Fleming SPORTS EDITOR In the years since he ran off Jimmy Johnson, Jerry Jones has made a shocking number of terrible decisions. Hiring Chan Gailey, thinking Quincy Carter could play football, hiring Dave Campo, thinking Ryan Leaf could play football, passing on Randy Moss, trading two first- round picks for Joey Galloway, thinking Chad Hutchison and Drew Henson might be able to play football are not flattering. Anyone wishing to make the case that Jones is an atrocious general manager could do so with ease. But it might not be fair. In constructing the 11 -1 juggernaut that sits atop the NFC, Jones has made many decisions viewed at the time as idiotic. But looking at how they have turned out, Jones may be on to something. Two years ago when he gave Terrell Owens his contract, all concerned parties characterized Jones as a sucker and a fool. The chorus cried out that Owens was nothing ...

Arts & Entertainment 10 —December 4, 2007 The University News Video-game "Beowulf/' Creepy "Mist/' Slick "Devil/' and Incoherent "Tales" FS CONTRIBUTING WRITER Beowulf The celebrated Anglo-Saxon poem gets the 300 treatment in Robert Zemeckis' "Beowulf" (wide release), which transforms the episodic tale of the brawny Geatish hero who does battle with the monster Grendel and the beast's mother into a boys' adventure for the video-game set, with plenty of fighting and bloodletting to satisfy aficionados of such stuff. The movie alters the original narrative by turning Grendel's mother into a svelte seductress whom Beowulf doesn't slay; instead he has a relationship with her. And the dragon he does battle with in the last act turns out to be his own progeny. But what really sets the picture apart is that it employs the performance-capture technology that Zemeckis previously used in "The Polar Express." The process morphs the actors—people like Ray Winstone, Anthony Hopkins, Robin Wr...

The University News December 4, 2007 — 11 Paul Spring is bad business for Cap Bar Colleen Sweeney A&E EDITOR People eat when they are bored and dull entertainment is usually accompanied by snacking. Knowing this, a sign of a truly captivating performance is when no one is munching away on popcorn or sipping a soda. During the SPUD Cap House event on Tuesday, Nov. 27, the Cap Bar barista enjoyed a slow night accompanied by the music of freshman, Paul Spring. The Cap Bar's temporary lack of business was due to his enormously enthralling performance. Paul Spring drew a crowd of over 60 students to the Cap Bar, and the core audience enthusiastically remained for his entire act, from 8:30 to 10 p.m. The SPUD event has rarely seen such an audience. While most of the crowd just listened, while sitting, standing, leaning up on the window sill or tables, or huddled close on the floor, some students danced in the nearby hall. Spring's personable manner, strong voice, song choice, and poss...

When my brother was in first grade, and I think I was in fourth, my sister and I dared him to stick his tongue to the metal mailbox. He did and ended up missing the bus.

Campus Living The University News December 4, 2007 — 13 Health & Swellness: how to manage stress Paeter Wait CONTRIBUTING WRITER With finals fast approaching, stress is bound to be present in our lives. Stress is our psychological and physiological reaction to anythingthat upsets ourpersonal balance and requires an adjustment. This is what causes the human fight or flight response and it benefits us by keeping us alert and ready to avoid danger. Since we don't usually have to run away from hungry mountain lions these days, our stress reaction is more often employed to help motivate, prepare, and energize us for difficult situations that require action. As students especially, these situations are usually psychological (like a class presentation) rather than physical (you don't usually have to flee from your Lit Trad professor), but our bodies don't make this distinction so we still experience a physical response. Stress becomes negative when a person is continually challenged an...

ommentary 14 —December 4, 2007 The University News Is oil a weapon of mass destruction? The battle for control of the world s energy supply Bennett Rawicki COMMENTARY EDITOR To fear or not to fear? The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) controls much of the world's oil, including the Middle East's vast reservoirs. Yet many of its countries seem more suited for a criminal lineup than a legitimate international agency: Iran, Venezuela, Iraq, Nigeria, and Saudi Arabia. OPEC has held major sway over the price of oil in its history. In 1973 to protest the Western World's support of Israel in its war against Egypt, OPEC nations cut production to quadruple the price of oil. Ecuador has urged OPEC to regain its political clout, and recently Hugo Chavez, President of Venezuela, threatened to double the price of oil if the U.S. were ever to invade Iran. Does OPEC have power the West should fear? Do we need to rush to energy independence? Luckily, no: global business save...

The University News December 4, 2007 — 15 Most electable Republican? Letters to the Editor The case against Rudy Giuliani Christopher Black CONTRIBUTING WRITER Many political pundits and conservative activists have been sayingthatformer New York mayor Rudy Giuliani is the Republican presidential candidate most likely to defeat Democrat Hillary Clinton in the 2008 presidential election. They argue that his experience during 9/11 and his moderate views make Giuliani the most attractive candidate among independent voters, pointing out that he performs better against Hillary than the other Republican candidates (John McCain, Mitt Romney, Fred Thompson, Mike Huckabee and Ron Paul) in almost every national poll. But is Giuliani really the most electable? National polls are important, but we all know that the Electoral College, not the national popular vote, elects the president. Thus, key constituencies from key states must be analyzed, and Giuliani will have problems with three of them: ...

After saying mass at the newly-built National Stadium in Washington, D.C. on Apr. 17, the Pope will meet with Catholic university presidents. "I'm planning on going," Lazarus said. "I hope to get an invitation." Details have not yet been solidified, but Lazarus is following new developments closely. "I've heard nothing from our National Organization of Catholic Colleges and Universities," Lazarus said. "In fact, I haven't heard anything but what I've been able to read in the Dallas Morning News and the Washington Post." He does, however, intend to be involved in any meeting the pope will hold.
