Where's the Beef? [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 8 October 1998
Where's the Beef? By Valerie Trost staff writer When I decided to become a vegetarian about three years ago I was not prepared to justify my decision every time I sat down to a meal with a friend or family member. Nor was I prepared for the massive explosion of hype this lifestyle has brought to a generation of well-informed, environmentally aware teens and twentysomethings. I came to the conclusion that the most productive way I could answer the questions of my friends and simultaneously arm myself with facts for the not so openminded meat eater was to become as educated as I could. Ever since the Pulitzer Prize nominated Diet for a New America by John Robbins was published, information about vegetarian diets and lifestyles have been available almost everywhere you look. With the suree of both this topic and the internet, I was able to go on-line to conduct a search for all the information 1, and others, seemed to be curious about. My favorite site (and the one that I am re...
This American Life [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 8 October 1998
This American Life By Jim O'Loughlin Beacon Advisor Until recently, you couldn't hear the best radio on radio in Erie. Fortunately, WQLN 91.3 FM has just changed their programming schedule and brought This American Life to the local airwaves (it's on Sundays from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.. check it out if you know what's good for you). The mix on This American Life is unlike anything else you'll hear on radio, but it's a recipe that works. Take one cup of The Real World, add in a few ounces of conversations you overhear on the bus, stir in a pinch of stories your crazy aunt used to tell. Throw it all in a blender and serve it up with the distinctly nerdy voice of host (and National Public Radio veteran) Ira Glass. The themes of individual shows vary widely. One week may feature the story of a couple who became involved when the man helped his to-be wife write letters to another guy she had a crush on at the time. Another may focus on a finger puppet opera based on the story of Chic...

Poll shows Americans believe in value of ethnic diversity [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 8 October 1998
Poll shows Americans believe in value of ethnic diversity By Sam Fulwood HI and Kenneth R. Weiss Los Angeles Times WASHINGTON - Americans believe strongly in the value of ethnic diversity in the United States, but feel the nation is becoming more divided along racial lines than less, a new study released Tuesday shows. The study conducted by the DYG Inc., a New York polling firm, for the Ford Foundation avoids any mention of affirmative action, a hotbutton term that tends to draw strong negative reactions. Instead, researchers asked voters to disclose their feelings concerning the broader and less sensitive topic of diversity on college campuses. Seventy-one percent of respondents say, for example, that college students should learn more about other ethnic groups as a way of bringing the nation closer together. However, three in five questioned say they believe that the nation is growing apart rather than together. Among selected poll findings: -91 percent agreed that "our s...

Gun-Maker Beretta battles suit by parents of slain boy By Sean Somcrville The Baltimore Sun A bit more than four years ago, Michael Soe, 14, replaced the loaded magazine in his father's Beretta 92 Compact L handgun with an empty one and pointed the gun at his friend, Kenzo Dix, 15. As Kenzo fired a pellet gun at birds out of Michael's bedroom window in Berkeley, Calif., Michael pulled the trigger, expecting to hear a click. Instead, he heard an explosion that would reverberate more than 3,000 miles to Beretta USA's headquarters in Accokeek, Md. Kenzo Dix died, the victim of an undetected bullet in the gun's firing chamber. Friday, a month alter what would have been Kenzo's 20th birthday, an Oakland, Calif., court will begin deciding, in what could be a landmark case, whether Beretta bears any responsibility for the death. In their suit against Beretta, Kenzo's parents, Lynn and Griffin Dix, maintain that the gun should have been designed to prevent use by unintended users ...
