The Logan Wintergarden Series continues with the DaPonte String Quartet on Tuesday, Oct. 20 at Penn State Erie, The Behrend College. Guests are invited to bring a brownbag lunch to the noontime concert in the Reed Union Building and enjoy the group's rich, expressive Hungarian style.

The DaPonte String Quartet is made up of Dean Stein, first violinist; Ferdinand Liva, violin; Mark Preston, viola; and Myles Jordan, cello. All graduates of the Juilliard School of Music, the group formed a permanent ensemble in 1991 while working in Philadelphia. Although each player is a virtuoso in his own right, the group blends to achieve precision and perfection as an ensemble. Its repertoire includes traditional Mozart, Beethoven, and Brahms along with newer composers Comolli, Kaufamn, and Reiprich. Hailed by The Philadelphia Inquirer as having "incredibly rich, expressive tone and....mellifluous phrasing," the DaPonte...

Extra computers alleviate crowding problem [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 15 October 1998

Extra computers alleviate crowding problem A view from the lighthouse The computers on the first floor of the Reed Building have proved to be extremely popular with students. They are in use well until late at night and are often very crowded in the day. Needless to say. they have at least helped to relieve crowding at the computer lab. Students can now surf the web and check their email outside of the lab, which opens up computers for those who need to write papers or work on projects. If this could be duplicated in other buildings, it would further alleviate crow(djn,g in,, the l^bs, The costs wojjiici i}£.r&\au.\e,ly.V.QW.if. they followed trie same ' procedure as they did for the machines in Reed. Old computers that have been replaced still work very well for the internet and email. If students could have access to these computers in Academic or Science or even in the residence halls, there would be much less complaint about lines in the labs. Also, there wou...

Public Figures, Private Lives and Tough Choices for Reporters [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 15 October 1998

Public Figures, Private Lives and Tough Choices for Reporters By Steve Weinberg The Baltimore Sun Media critics who say journalists have no business delving into the sex lives of Reps. Henry Hyde and Dan Burton are probably well-intentioned - but they're misguided about how and why investigative reporters do what they do. The controversy has led me to reflect not only on the current controversy but also on the difficult decisions I made a decade ago as the first independent biographer of business tycoon Armand Hammer, whose private life was messy, to say the least. When a public official exercises influence over policy and, thus, over other people, that official should expect scrutiny of actions and words, of any discrepancy between perfor mance in the public arena and behavior offstage. Journalists are not the only people capable of doing the scrutinizing. But because no one else has their job description, journalists have accepted the responsibility, sometimes reluctantly,...

Heshman elections violate SGA constitution [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 15 October 1998

Heshman elections violate SGA constitution l ne z>e.ii end Keview CHARLES TESTRAKF. Two weeks ago. as I sat down in Bruno's to eat my lunch and read The Beacon, as I do every Thursday around noon, one item in particular caught my attention. A headline in the lower right hand corner of the front page which read: "SGA postpones freshmen elections." Now as a former SGA Senator and a former Co-Chairperson of the SGA Freshmen Elections Committee, I So why then did SGA, "the voice of the students" by their own slogan, take the voice away from the students? thought this was quite odd. I said to myself, "those elections should have taken place a couple of weeks ago". However as I read on further into the article, one sentence in particular infuriated me. It read: "Members of the SGA will vote and choose two candidates for the two open positions". Now I will be the first person to admit that if an SGA Senate seat becomes open during the course of the ac...

Death of gay student reflects attitudes of America [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 15 October 1998

Death of gay student reflects attitudes of America One Flew Over the Albatross Nest ANNERATOTTF Matthew Shepard. the gay University of Wyoming student who was brutally beaten ;and tortured a week ago, died early Monday morning. Once again the issue of rampant homophobia in the United States has to be brought into the spotlight by means of an act of violence. College campuses all over the United States deal with hale crimes, and Penn State is no exception. Even Behrend, where no act of violence against gays has been reported in recent years, has its share of anti-gay students. The Trigon mailbox in the SGA office is regularly graffitied with antigay comments. Last year's Safer Sex Cabaret was criticized for its inclusion of gay sex in its discussion of safer sex. The attitudes at Behrend are a reflection of the attitudes in the rest of the country. The United States Congress passed the Defense of Marriage Act that woul d allow states to make same-sex marriages illegal even ...

For majority of students, college life was never that boozy [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 15 October 1998

For majority of students, college life was never that boozy By Lorraine Eaton Knight-Ridder Newspapers NORFOLK - "Animal House" is dead. Truth be told, for a solid majority of students, college life never really was that boozy after all. "It's the best kept secret on college campuses," said Michael P. Haines, campus health coordinator at Northern Illinois University. In fact, binge drinking has never been the campus norm, Haines said. Media reports and scare campaigns have focused on the 37 percent of collegians whom a 1997 National Institute on Drug Abuse survey found to be binge drinkers. That puts pressure on those who don't want to party hardy. Instead, colleges need to show students that responsible drinking is the norm and scrap programs that preach that all drinking is bad. he said. Haines on Thursday drew a standing-room-only crowd to his somewhat politically incorrect, all day "social marketing" workshop for college students and health representatives. It was part o...

Campus stunned after gay student dies from savage beating [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 15 October 1998

Campus stunned after gay student dies from savage beating By Julie Cart Los Angeles Times LARAMIE, Wyo. - Students at the University of Wyoming, already shocked by the savage beating of a gay student last week, returned to school on Monday to find flags on the leafy campus riding at half mast. The flags snapping in a cool fall breeze sent a silent signal of more horrid news to the student body. "I looked up, saw the flags and thought, Oh, my God, Matthew's dead,'" said Shannon Rexroat, a senior who edits the campus newspaper. "The entire campus is in shock and outraged. I teach an orientation class for freshmen. Most of them can't imagine anyone with enough hate in them to do this. Many of their parents sent them here because it is supposed to be so safe." The death of Matthew Shepard, a popular political science student, left emotions raw in this windswept prairie town. Shepard died early Monday morning at Poudre Valley Hospital, about 60 miles away in Fort Collins. Colo. T...

Domino's sues UK campus over Papa John's debit-card contract [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 15 October 1998

Domino's sues UK campus over Papa John's debit-card contract By John Cheves, Lexington Herald-Leader, Ky. Knight-Ridder Newspapers (KRT) — Domino's Pizza delivered a piping-hot lawsuit this week to the University of Kentucky. Judson Ridgway, owner of the Domino's, is unhappy with the tasty deal UK has offered to competitor Papa John's Pizza: As of last Friday, students can charge pizzas to their UK-issued debit cards — sending the bill to Mom and Dad, or whomever pays their college bills — but only if the pizza comes from Papa John's. "This is a big deal. It means a lot of money to whoever gets this Numbers don't lie. The kids like our pizza. Stevt Hart, owner of Mad Mushroom contract," said Ridgway, who filed a lawsuit against UK Tuesday in Fayette Circuit Court. "If you're a student and you've got a $20 bill in one pocket and a debit card in the other, and you're hungry, what are you going to do? Are you going to spend your $20? Or are you going to buy a pizza with your de...

Police blotter: A look at campus crime briefs [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 15 October 1998

Police blotter: A look at campus crime briefs Compiled By Peter Levine Campus Correspondent University of Wisconsin College Press Exchange NORTHRIDGE, Calif. (CPX) —According to the Daily Sundial, a woman at California State University at Northridge reported to police on Sept. 15 that she saw a man on campus clutching his abdomen as if in pain. The woman said she ran in the direction of campus police to get the man help. As she looked over her shoulder, she spied the man unzipping his pants and exposing himself. The woman said the man chased after her while yelling obscenities. She told police she ran home and was unharmed. BOULDER, Colo, (CPX) — A couple living near the University of Colorado at Boulder told police on Sept. 18 that they awoke to find a drunk student passed out in their bathroom. According to The Campus Press, the student, a 19-year-old male who lives on campus, apparently opened the couple's front door, unlatched a chain lock to let himself inside and wan...

Some say redesigned $20 bill looks like funny money [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 15 October 1998

Some say redesigned $20 bill looks like funny money By Paul Farhi The Washington Post WASHINGTON - No, it's not funny money, or play money, or, as one bank executive thought upon first encountering it, "some kind of bank promotion." The new $20 bill is genuine legal tender, as solid as a sawbuck can be. But call it the shock of the new. As the radically redesigned twenty begins to trickle out of automatedteller machines, it looks to many eyes as odd as a three-dollar bill. April Crews, who works for a nonprofit youth organization in Washington, gets her first glimpse of the new bill's clashing type fonts, its luxuriant fields of white space, its new, inyour-face portrait of Andrew Jackson and almost physically recoils. "Oh, it looks awful," she declares. "What have they done?" George Medina, a file analyst at the Export-Import Bank, offers a short, unambiguous design review: "Fake-looking." They - and you - might as well get used to it. The twenty is the third U.S. bill to b...

Excavation reveals slaves as entrepreneurs [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 15 October 1998

Excavation reveals slaves as entrepreneurs By Linda Wheeler The Washington Post An archaeological team excavating an old James River plantation in Virginia has found evidence that some enslaved Africans partially supported their families with their own gardens and livestock and that they hunted for game and fished the river. They became part of entrepreneurial America, bartering or buying dishes, beads and children's toys. The work of College of William and Mary archaeologist Tom Higgins, supported by similar finds at other Virginia plantations, shatters the long-held belief that all slaves were helpless, dependent people who could do little to care for themselves. "We know now that the people who lived here took the initiative to make their condition better," Higgins said as he walked along a soybean field where 100 or more slaves had lived on the 2,000-acre Wilton plantation east of Richmond. "They were creative. They found ways to take care of themselves under a brutal an...

Officials launch aggressive Megan's Law enforcement [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 15 October 1998

Officials launch aggressive Megan's Law enforcement By Josh Meyer Los Angeles Times LOS ANGELES - If you think it's unsettling to get a letter from the Internal Revenue Service, imagine opening an envelope and reading that a violent sexual predator is living down the street from you and your children. In the coming weeks, the county Board of Supervisors has decided, that is exactly what is going to happen to thousands of Los Angeles County residents who live on the same block as a "high risk," violent sex offender. The supervisors have directed Sheriff Sherman Block to make such formal notifications in the county's unincorporated areas, home to about 1 million people. Supporters and critics say that Los Angeles County's new policy is among the nation's most aggressive applications of Megan's Law, named after a New Jersey girl killed by a violent and repeat sex offender. California law has long required about 65,000 sex offenders to register with their local law enforcement a...

Violent witch hunts on the rise in South Africa [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 15 October 1998

Violent witch hunts on the rise in South Africa By Gilbert A. Lewthwaite The Baltimore Sun TSHILAMBA, South Africa - Violet Dangale, 42, was driven from her home 30 months ago by relatives and neighbors who accused her of being a witch growing rich from the work of zombies, as the "living dead" are known in that line of work. Now penniless and in fear for her life, she hides in this remote village of Northern Province in a tent given to her by the local police. Francina Sebatsana, 75, and Desia Mamafa, 55, suffered a worse fate in December. They were burned to death on pyres of wood in the village of Wydhoek, in the same province, after also being denounced ?s witches. Eleven men, ages 21 to 50, will be tried on murder charges in November. Since 1990, more than 2,000 cases of witchcraft-related violence, including 577 killings, have been reported in this remote, northern corner of South Africa. This is not the only area that has seen such violence. This month, in the heartla...
