Homecoming '98: crowning kings and queens doesn't always bring out the best in students [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 29 October 1998

Homecoming '98: crowning kings and queens doesn't always bring out the best in students By Amy Cappiello Campus Correspondent - University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill College Press Exchange CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — Homecoming is usually a lime to bring together the past and the present so both eras can help celebrate the future. But at some universities across the nation, the tradition of choosing a homecoming court has become such a sore subject thai it dampens - cither publicly or privately - the festivities for many. Take the University of Illinois at Chaivtpaign-Urbana for example. It dumped its 62-ycai-old competition all together this year, reasoning that the exercise had become too competitive and controversial. The student-run Illini Union Board sutitiested the move. "I guess that s just the '90s.'' said Willard Broom, the university's associate dean ot students. "I just don't think that (the board) wants to create any kind of false hierarchy, or recognition for on...

MIT fraternity disbands [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 29 October 1998

MIT fraternity disbands College Press Exchange BOSTON. Mass. - Prosecutors' case against the Phi Gamma Delta chapter at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology has fallen apart because the fraternity has agreed to disband, leaving no one lo defend the group against allegations that it played a role in the 1997 drinking death of freshman Scott Krueger. The Suffolk County District Attorney's Office, which spent a year investigating the events leading to Krueger\s death, set legal precedent last month when it charged the fraternity with manslaughter and hazing. The day after the indictments were announced, the fraternity signed an agreement to shut down its MIT chapter. No one showed up for an arraignment last Thursday, leaving prosecutors to rest their case for now. A provision of the chapter's dissolution allows it to apply for university recognition again in the future, but the moment that happens, the fraternity can expect to be hauled back to court, said Pamela Wechsler,...

Two dozen monkeys break out of research center, returned home [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 29 October 1998

Two dozen monkeys break out of research center, returned home College Press Exchange NEW ORLEANS, La. (CPX) - Life was even livelier than a barrel of monkeys when two dozen primates broke out of a Tulane University research center and ran for some nearby woods, chased by workers trying to recover them. By Tuesday morning, all but three of the rhesus monkeys had been returned to the covered outdoor corral where they live at the Tulane University Regional Primate Center. Workers captured them by baiting cages with fruit. The three hold-outs, apparently tired of playing in the woods without their friends, were actually trying to get back into the corral by the end of the day. AH were safely inside the corral on Wednesday. The monkeys escaped by loosening the corral gate just enough to create a space they could wiggle through. Sunday's escapade was the first time the animals had broken out in such a large group, a research center official said. Once out, the monkeys stuck togeth...

Enticing names help market courses to college students [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 29 October 1998

Enticing names help market courses to college students By Ellen Warren Knight-Riddc-r Newspapers It's noi that higher education is a business (though it is). And it's not that professors really have to market the courses they teach (though sometimes they do). Perhaps it's just to liven up those dreary page after computerized page of course listings that abound at colleges and universities across the country. For whatever reason, there are some deliciously bizarre and entertaining courses being offered by institutions of higher learning. The trend may be for college kids to try and graduate with useful, saleable skills - a plus in a world where college costs continue to rise faster than inflation and student loans can linger into middle age. But a meander through university Web sites, course guides and special mailings shows you can still find strange and unexpected learning experiences in college. In the classroom. Consider Stanford University s philosophy department graduat...

Norwegian prime minister wins support by publicizing depression [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 29 October 1998

Norwegian prime minister wins support by publicizing depression ByTRTReid The Washington Post OSLO -- There is no special pros ecutor hounding Kjell Magnc Bondevik, no grand jury, no impeachment proceeding underway. The prime minister's approval ratings are near historic highs. The burning political problem he is dealing with this fall is one that most leaders would love to face: how much of the budget surplus to spend now, and how much to save for the future. You might think all this good news would make for a happy head of state. In fact, Norway's prime minister has found his job depressing -- so much so that he took two unprecedented steps. First, the 51-year-old political veteran took 3 1/2 weeks of sick leave. Then he admitted his sickness was psychological: a "depressive reaction" to the constant stress of running a country. "When I was put on sick leave," Bondevik announced bluntly in a statement, "the reason was simply that my strength was gone. ....

Gunmen fire on funeral of 11 -year-old killed in Kosovo [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 29 October 1998

Gunmen fire on funeral of 11 -year-old killed in Kosovo By R. Jeffrey Smith The Washington Post PRISTINA, Yugoslavia - Sharpshooters believed to be part of a government security force fired on gravediggers and several hundred mourners and journalists at a funeral Sunday in central Kosovo for an ethnic Albanian boy who was believed slain by Serbs on Saturday, said witnesses and Western diplomatic observers. Four U.S. diplomatic observers were among those present Sunday in the village of Krajkova, 18 miles west of Pristina, where the 11-year-old boy's family lives. But they declined a request from his relatives to use the observers' armored car as a shield during the funeral. The observers, who were unarmed, said they could not ensure the family's safety and drove off after urging the family to bury him elsewhere. The incident, which came two days before a NATO-imposed deadline for the Yugoslav government to withdraw its security forces from Kosovo province, underscore the dif...

Gene linked to right-handedness [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 29 October 1998

Gene linked to right-handedness By Jamie Talan Newsday Scientists scouting for genes to explain whether a person feels more comfortable using his left hand or right have always come up emptyhanded. Now, a geneticist says he may have an answer. Amar Klar of the National Cancer Institute says researchers have primarily sought genes linked to the 15 percent of the population born lefthanded, since by percentage alone this would be considered an anomaly. But "this has been a big mistake," he says. At a recent symposium, Klar reported that a mathematical study of about 50 families over three generations — modeled on a computer - suggests that there's a gene link to being right-handed, but none to being lefthanded. That gene, dubbed RGHT by Klar and his colleagues at NCI's Frederick Cancer Research and Development Center in Maryland, expresses itself when it is located on both chromo somes handed down from parents. When it is missing from both chromosomes, referred to as a double ...

Students with vouchers show slight gains [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 29 October 1998

Students with vouchers show slight gains By Linda Perlstein The Washington Post Low-income students who used vouchers to attend New York private schools showed slightly greater improvements in math and reading tests than their peers who remained in public elementary schools, according to a report released Tuesday. The study, conducted by Harvard University and Mathematica Policy Research, boosted the case of voucher supporters, who believe poor children should have the same opportunity to benefit from a private school education that wealthier children do. Researchers evaluated the academic performance of about 700 children attending private schools with the financial assistance of a scholarship foundation, and compared their test scores with those of students who had applied but were not selected in the program's lottery. The students were given the same standardized math and reading tests at the beginning and end of the 1997-98 school year. On average, the voucher students ...

Men and women fight for the title in the Battle of the Sexes By Sarah Edwards staff writer On ((elober 24th, Four male teams and four female teams competed on the Behrend Carnival Ground in front of Reed to decide who was the better sex. The competition consisted of three rounds, and it was a fight to the finish. The first round was made up of five different events. The males dominated the "Ho Ho Roll," an event that consisted of rolling a Ho Ho on the ground with their nose to the next team member in line. The females came from behind to catch up lo their male counterparts in the "Pencil Pass." The "Pencil Pass" was a game that involved pulling a pencil on a string through every article of clothing that each teammate was wearing and then taking the pencil back out again. After all five first round events, both sexes were tied, and tension was high. Going into the second round of competition with only three male teams and three female teams remaining, the competition was int...

1000 French: Good coffee and good food [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 29 October 1998

1000 French: Good coffee and good food By Roger Burlingamc staff writer The name is as unique as the establishment itself, which is actually a coffee house moonlighting as a restaurant. When I first visited 1000 French (which just opened its doors in May, and is located on the corner of Tenth and French Streets). I wasn't sure what a mesquite grill was doing on the patio of an upscale coffee house. However, I was soon to discover that this was more than just a coffee house. With a very small but solid dinner menu, and a more extensive lunch menu. 1000 French had managed to magically turn itself into a nice restaurant. As I entered the restaurant, I was instantly impressed with the atmosphere, the bar itself was beautiful but not as beautiful as the many antiques, the art hanging on the wall, and the lighting which was inspiring. Throw all this together with some mellow jazz in the background and you can't help but love the place. My roommate and I showed up at 8:30 and we ...

Website of the week [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 29 October 1998

Website of the week By Jon Stubbs features editor Many students probably already know what an .mp3 file is. It's a digital music file that is about 4 or 5 megabytes in size that contains an entire song. These files are played with a program called Winamp, which can be downloaded from www.winamp.com. The best place to find these .mp3s on the web is at a site called www.palavista.com. Faiavista is a search engine that combines ten or so smaller search engines into one big one. Altogether, the site can search over a hundred different ftp sites very i quickly. Just about any song one is looking for can be found at Palavista. Newer releases seem to be easier to find, however. Now to remain legal, the downloader must delete the .mp3 file within 24 hours to comply with recently instated copyright laws. However, this is all on the honor system, because no one can really tell how long you are going to keep the file. There is no cost to download songs, and even tho...
