Misconceptions about the morning after pill [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 1 October 1998

Misconceptions about the morning after pill A view from the lighthouse The front page article in last week's Beacon about emergency contraception at the Health and Wellness Center sparked a lot of discussion about the technicalities of the morning after pill. Some students, despite what Patty Pasky McMahon stated, still believe that the morning after pill is really an abortion pill. However, the morning after pill is virtually the same as birth control pills, only in a higher dosage. The pill prevents an egg from attaching to the lining of the uterus or prevents the ovary from releasing the egg in the first place. While a person's first priority should be practicing safe sex, accidents can occur. The morning after pill is back-up in case something should go wrong. The availability of the pill at the Health and Wellness Center is valuable knowledge to many Behrend women. The Health and Wellness Center also has information about dangers such as the date rape drug and what to...

Merit and the relevance of race in college admissions [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 1 October 1998

Merit and the relevance of race in college admissions By William G. Bowen and Derek Bok Special to the Los Angeles Times In his classic study of Wall Street lawyers in the 1960s, Erwin Smigel reports that "I only heard of three Negroes who had been hired by large law firms. Two of these were women who did not meet the client." Smigel's statement is not surprising. In the 1960s, few leading professional schools or nationally prominent colleges and universities enrolled more than a handful of minority students. In the late 1960s, however, colleges and universities began to change these statistics, not by establishing quotas, but by considering race, along with many other factors, in deciding whom to admit. This policy was adopted because of a widely shared conviction that it was simply wrong for overwhelming numbers of minorities to continue holding routine jobs while almost all influential positions were held by whites. Educators also considered it vital to create a more dive...

America's favorite pastime [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 1 October 1998

America's favorite pastime Live from Guyana AVOr>RI FIONRS I am a huge Yankees fan, okay well maybe a huge Derek Jeter fan, but what do you expect. I am a New Yorker. Since my "infallible" Knicks always fail to get past the Indiana Pacers, The Miami Heat or Da Bulls, I've decided to finally take on a New York team which will presumably not end the season early and will not give me heartaches. This in mind, I followed every Yankees game and was so proud of my home team which was at one point in time almost fifty games ahead of five hundred. This was one of the main focus points on local sports news and ESPN; of course the other one being the home run derby occurring between Sosa, McGwire, and Griffey. The latter eventually eclipsed the incredible feats being accomplished by the Yankees and soon the nation's attention was turned to who would be the first to break Roger Maris' home run record. Baseball is as American as apple pie and it's America's national pas time, b...

Stop whining and do something this weekend [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 1 October 1998

Stop whining and do something this weekend The Ordinary College Student MARK GRRRNBANK So, it's another weekend here at Behrend and you're looking for something to do. You live on campus, and decided not to go home unlike the other 80% of the student body. The horrendous snowfall hasn't yet begun, contrary to the oh so accurate Erie weathermen, but you don't have a car to go off campus anyway. Your psychotic glue-sniffing roommate thankfully decided to go home, but all your other friends did as well. The big question is what do you do for some fun. Obviously you have plenty of homework to do, but hey, you're in college now and homework is optional. If you get motivated enough you can get off your computer and out of the chat room, or maybe quit playing your Nintendo 64 and leave your room. Many students say that there is never anything to do on the weekends here. One popular avenue that many students pursue is partying. There is a general feeling on this campus and many ot...

Careless students find debt load harder than course load [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 1 October 1998

Careless students find debt load harder than course load By Kathleen Lynn Knight-Ridder Newspapers Dana Sabio, a 20-year-old in Mahwah, N.J., wants a credit card. "I think it's good to have one, to build a credit history," she said. But 19-yearold Seleene Lewis of Teaneck, N.J., a 19-year-old, has dumped her plastic: "I got Discover, MasterCard, and Visa my freshman year. I went crazy." Lewis said she ran up bills of $1,500 for clothing, spring break vacations, and "nonsense," and is still paying off the debts. Sabio and Lewis show the potential - and the risk - of college students having credit cards. Nationwide, about two-thirds of all college students have credit cards, and about a quarter have four or more cards, according to a survey by Nellie Mae, the student-loan provider. Most handle plastic responsibly, said Diane Saunders, a spokeswoman for Nellie Mae. The average student credit card debt is about $500, and a greater percentage of students than adults pay off their...

Massive Allyn Fest party puzzles police in Akron [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 1 October 1998

Massive Allyn Fest party puzzles police in Akron By Terry Shropshire and Debbie Murphy The Buchtelite The University of Akron The Akron Police Department thought they had a handle on couchburning and bottle-hurling parties at the University of Akron. But they were grossly unprepared to handle the mass of students that swarmed Allyn Street for a massive celebration on the night of September 19. Police converged on the scene, armed with riot control gear and chemical agents to thwart a defiant crowd that, initially, refused to leave. Called Allyn Fest, it is believed to be the third annual party to commemorate the beginning of the school year. But the party, which started about 10:30 p.m., quickly raged out of control when an estimated 1,000 students spilled into the streets and set couches and other items on fire, police officials said. "It was a large, unruly crowd," said Police Captain Ron Black. "We got to the scene and several couches were on fire and students were runnin...

Teen-Age girls having their breasts surgically enlarged [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 1 October 1998

Teen-Age girls having their breasts surgically enlarged By Mark Angeles Knight-Ridder Newspapers Patty Sullivan is going back to school with new books, new clothes - and new breasts. Sullivan, 19, is one of an increasing number of teen-agers who have had their breasts surgically enlarged. While disturbing to some, the cosmetic procedure has its defenders, including the doctors who perform them and the satisfied customers who receive them. "I've wanted them since I was 13 years old," said Sullivan, who said she stopped developing naturally when she was 15. Last month, she paid to have her breasts enlarged by two full cup sizes, to a modest 34C. Before the procedure, "a Miracle Bra was my best friend," said the waitress and college student who has lived on her own since January. Sullivan didn't consult her parents before having the implants and she paid the $6,000 cost herself, with money she'd been saving for years. ' Why do girls go on diets, and why do they lie on the bea...

Jury awards $1 million each to professors forced to resign over race [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 1 October 1998

Jury awards $1 million each to professors forced to resign over race By Joseph R. Daughen And Jim Smith Knight-Ridder Newspapers PHILADELPHIA - Two former professors at Cheyney University near Philadelphia have been awarded more than $1 million each after a federal jury found the historically black school had discriminated against them because they are white. At a trial before U.S. District Judge Robert F. Kelly, Fred Centner, 63, and Robert Stevenson, 68, said they were harassed and forced to resign after they complained that their department bad embarked on a plan to dismiss white male teachers and replace them with African-Americans. Both men, who live in West Chester, Pa., were longtime professors in the science and allied health department In fall 1991, they said, their department began a campaign to "systematically dismiss Caucasian male professors." The department then had eight; teachers, five white males, an Asian female and two black males, including Eugene Jones...

Evacuees flock to sports facility [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 1 October 1998

Evacuees flock to sports facility By Susan Saulny The Washington Post NEW ORLEANS - As Hurricane Georges unleashed its initial flickers of fury on the New Orleans area, hundreds of residents rushed to the Louisiana Superdome, which city officials opened Sunday morning as "a shelter of last resort." They came in droves pushing and shoving in a chaotic rush to safety as winds picked up speed and rain began to fall. They lugged plastic bags overflowing with clothes, blankets, food, toys and medical supplies, and carried jugs of water — enough for days. Whole families, elderly people in wheelchairs, mothers nursing babies, screaming children ~ everyone was on the lookout for a few feet of space in the cavernous halls and rampways that just Saturday night were filled with fans watchingTulane beat Navy in a college football game. Joseph Baptiste, 74, a former housing authority manager, rested his head against a wall on the plaza level as he watched the crowds surge past him. "Bett...

Guatemalans train with weapons of peace [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 1 October 1998

Guatemalans train with weapons of peace By Tern Shaw The Washington Post CHIMALTENANGO, Guatemala ~ Francisco Vasquez was 17 when he left his Kaqchikel Indian village in the Guatemalan highlands to join guerrillas fighting the military government. That was in 1984. Today, Vasquez has set aside his rifle for carpentry tools, learning woodworking in a United Nations-sponsored program stemming from the 1996 peace agreement that ended the 36-year insurgency. Vasquez's journey from mountain rebel to carpenter is emblematic of efforts by the Guatemalan government and international agencies to find a place in society for the nearly 3,000 onetime guerrillas who laid down their arms under terms of the peace agreement. The demobilization of the guerrillas, one diplomat said, was surprisingly peaceful: "It went off without a hitch." But adjustment to civilian life has not always gone smoothly for the former guerrillas or their erstwhile enemies. Under the peace accords, one-third of th...

Fathers' program largely failed, study shows [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 1 October 1998

Fathers' program largely failed, study shows By Judith Havemann The Washington Post WASHINGTON- The nation's most ambitious effort to help the fathers of children on welfare failed to increase the men's employment or earnings and had only modest success at forcing them to make child support payments, according to a extensive study to be released Tuesday. Overall, men enrolled in the $12 million program did no better in the job market than similar men who received no help. The study represents the most comprehensive examination of fatherhood programs that have developed into a crucial component of the nation's social policy. When Congress rewrote the federal welfare laws two years ago, it ushered in a new crackdown on absent fathers, requiring states to track them down and force them to help pay for the support of their children. As a result, numerous programs have proliferated around the country to help carry out this goal. But detailed results from the largest of these effo...

Demonstrators challenge authority of Malaysian leader [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 1 October 1998

Demonstrators challenge authority of Malaysian leader By David Lamb Los Angeles Times JAKARTA, Indonesia ~ Demonstrators demanding reform clashed with police in Kuala Lumpur for a second day Monday, challenging the authority of Malaysia's autocratic prime minister, Mahathir Mohamad, the longest-serving leader in Southeast Asia. The clash, which came as Queen Elizabeth II was presiding over closing ceremonies at the 16th Commonwealth Games a few miles away, upped the ante in a dispute that started when Mahathir fired and arrested his deputy, Anwar Ibrahim, whom the demonstrators support. Anwar, 51, was dumped Sept. 2 in a power struggle with the 73-year-old Mahathir amid allegations of sexual improprieties, attempted murder and corruption, all of which Anwar denies. Rather than go quietly, Anwar toured the country denouncing Mahathir. He was arrested at his home on Sunday. Although few diplomats dare predict how the challenge to Mahathir's 17-year rule would play out in a...

Another shooting by border patrol results in death [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 1 October 1998

Another shooting by border patrol results in death By Ken Ellingwood Los Angeles Times SAN DIEGO - In the second lethal shooting in 24 hours, a Border Patrol agent on Sunday night killed a suspected undocumented immigrant who allegedly threatened him with a rock, officials said. The fatal shootings were the first involving Border Patrol agents in San Diego County since 1994 and the first since the Operation Gatekeeper border crackdown flooded the region with agents, according to Mexican consul officials in San Diego. U.S. officials said Sunday's shooting occurred in Border Field State Park, a few miles west of the San Ysidro border crossing. The agent was checking for footprints when he was pelted by rocks, officials said. As the agent retreated to his vehicle, a man emerged from the darkness wielding a rock and ignored orders to stop. "Fearing for his life, (the agent) brings out the weapon and shoots this person, striking the person in the torso area," Border Patrol spokes...

Ronin: Nothing new [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 1 October 1998

Ronin: Nothing new By Jon Stubbs features editor In the recent MGM release, Robert DeNiro stars as a "masterless samurai," or as the Japanese would say, a Ronin. DeNiro stars as Sam, a former American intelligence agent that has been hired by an unknown organization to retrieve a very mysterious and very expensive suitcase. Along with Sam, the group has hired four other private contractors to retrieve the case. Sam is befriended by another member of the team, Vincent, played by Jean Reno. Reno also played the traitor Franz Krieger in 1996's Mission: Impossible. Vincent is Sam's only true friend throughout the film; he is the one and only man who won't betray him. Shooting for Ronin began on November 3, 1997, in an abandoned warehouse in Aubervilles, a suburb of Paris. The entire film was shot on location at various cities and towns in France. The first of many car chases (they seem to constitute about 25% of the film) was shot in Old Nice. Director John Frankenheimer, whose ...

Band and BBQ bash a success [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 1 October 1998

Band and BBQ bash a success By Mark Greenback associate editor Do you feel there is never anything to do on the weekends here at Behrend? Then perhaps you missed the Band and BBQ Bash outside the suites this past Saturday. From 3:30-7:30 p.m. students were treated to food, live music from two different bands, and a chance to forget about classes for a while. The students who attended were awarded a rare dining experience of free food, and while the food was provided by Housing and Food Services, it was still good. Providing the entertainment for the day were two live bands playing outside of Porcu pine Hall. The first band was a trio of Behrend students who go by the name Busdriver. With their alternative rock sound, Busdriver put on an entertaining two and a half hour show, often making fun of themselves and getting a good laugh from the audience. The Moonshine Band from Edinboro was the second act to go on that day. Their classic rock sound and playing style brought The Mo...
