Goo Goo Dolls concert a success [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 12 November 1998

Goo Goo Dolls concert a success A view from the lighthouse Monday night' s Goo Goo Dolls concert seems to have been a success in many different ways. The concert was sold out, and most agree that it was a good show. Although ii costs a great deal to bring a band of this caliber to Behrend. it was well worth it. Participation from the student body, usually a problem, was high for this concert. Behrend also received it good deal of local attention from radio stations and other media. Any event that excited the students as much as this concert is worth repealing. It raises school spirit and student participation. It also gives students reassurance that their students activity fee money is going toward something that they are interested in.

Good medicine includes safe abortions [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 12 November 1998

Good medicine includes safe abortions By Douglas W. Laube Special to Newsday The murder of Dr. Burnett Slepian has cast an ominous shadow over physicians and other health-care workers who provide legal abortion services. Undoubtedly, that's one goal of the sniper who shot the Buffalo obstetrician in his kitchen two weeks ago. But this act of terrorism is also an attack on our nation's women and their right to choose what is best for them. Historically, American women have been at a disadvantage. Fortunately, our nation has finally taken great strides to redress that imbalance. Although reproductive choice is not the sole marker of social equity, it represents a significant part of women's ability to make decisions lor themselves. To ensure that women don't lose ground, there must be a cadre of healthcare providers willing to support women's reproductive rights. While it is true that the number of abortions has declined steadily since 1980. it is also true that the number of ...

A return to the Eighties [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 12 November 1998

A return to the Eighties The Ordinary College Student MARK GREENBANK People say that things lend to co,v >e back around again. It seems lo me that the 1980s are trying to co.ne back in some way. Obviously the "80' will never be back in full force, but certain aspects have been popping back up recently. The biggest one that comes to mind immediately is The Phantom Menace. For those of you who aren't fully aware, and shame on you for not knowing, The Phantom Menace is the title of the new Star Wars prequel movie. While the original Star Wars trilogy was popular in the late 1970s through the early 1980s, ii was still around long enough for many of us to remember. Personally, I was excited when the action figures were rereleased a couple of years ago. Unfortunately. 1 was sucked into this marketing gimmick and bought far too many of (he same figures I origi nally had. So yes, Star Wars mania will bej-n ugain this cominj summer. Anoil; r more timely event is the exciting...

British public shrugs off media frenzy over gay politicians By Marjorie Miller Los Angeles Times LONDON - "TELL US THE TRUTH TONY . Are we being run by a gay mafia?" cried a front-page headline in the Sun tabloid after a second member of Prime Minister Tony Blair's Cabinet announced that he is gay and two others were "outed" in the media. The response Tuesday came not from Blair but from the British public: Who cares ' Despite the efforts of some British media to make political hay of gays in government, an opinion poll published in the Guardian newspaper showed that a majority of Britons think that homosexuality is morally acceptable and not an impediment to holding high public office. "Following the lesson of the Clinton-Lewinsky affair, we may be seeing that the public is more tolerant than the press thinks it is," said Ralph Legrine, a professor at the Center for Mass Communication Research in Leicester. "They are less concerned about private details ...

Peek-n-Peak Champagne Brunch Well Worth the Price By Roger Burlingame staff writer This Sunday I visited the Peek-n-Peak for their champagne brunch. Every week the brunch has a special theme, and this week it was the "Oceans of the World." Along with the normal brunch dishes traditionally served, there were many specialty seafood dishes, all which were great. First of all the atmosphere at the Peek is wonderful; it is a beautiful resort located in scenic Clymer, New York, just over the state line, about thirty minutes away from Behrend. High vaulted ceilings, beautiful grand staircases, and 300-year old chandeliers brought over from Europe make for an unforgettable experience. The presentation of the brunch itself was very tastefully done with a wonderful ice sculpture of a dolphin in the center of a table full of my favorite appetizers. Our waiter, Jeff Grice, Management, 09 is a fellow Behrend student. He was the best server I've had since I started doing these reviews. I ...
