October 1, 2003 The University News Commentary Stick in the UD Anna Bald i f Maryclaire Becan UD males divided into sub-species While the experienced "stick in the UD" may be familiar with the goings-on of Charity Week, some of the newer or less observant on campus may still be in the dark (or the cave, if you will). With the semi-formal dance rapidly approach- ing, we feel it is time to educate the masses. Our inspiration comes thanks to our muse, Meghan Lavalley, our roommate and friend, who is an almost-too-enthusiastic biology major. So, this past Saturday, when she pulled out her Animal Be- havior textbook at 9 a.m., we were not surprised. We were surprised, however, when she shared with us the varying theo- ries on mating dances of ducks. This reminded us of the equally varied mating and dating rituals of the UD boy (Universitas Dallensis Maleus), whom we have been privy to observe in his natural habitat for the past two or so years. Like hunters in the wild, we set up our bli...

6 October 1, 2003 The University News Fea- How students become Senior education majors return by Zainab Mushir Contributing Writer Jessica Duran "s favorite part of the school day is just before dismissal time. That is when Amanda Palmer, Duran's cooperating teacher, recites a poem for her third-grade class at Townsell Elementary School. "At the end of the day, even if you have had to raise your voice at [the students], they give you a hug and you get that feeling of 'I did what I was supposed to do today,"' Duran, a UD senior, said. Duran, along with 17 other UD students, is enrolled in Elementary Directed Teaching, an upper level course designed as the capstone course in teacher education, Barbara Khirallah, education professor, said. The course requires students to teach in an elementary level classroom for 12 weeks, a requirement for becoming a state certified teacher. Both a cooperating classroom teacher and a UD supervisor guide students as they take on classroom responsibilit...

Duran said she was surprised to see the need for teachers to teach students manners and etiquette, "things that we take for granted." Meeting state and district guidelines for lesson plans can also be difficult with time restraints over the course of the day, Wadle said. "I can go in at the beginning of the day and have everything laid out, but something will come up and change the plan," she said. Often, unpredictable events require making many judgment calls, Wadle said. Preparation UD's teacher education program does a very good job of preparing seniors for the classroom, and few of the teachers admitted to being at all nervous their first day on the job. Most of this preparation comes out of the three practicum courses education majors take their junior year. The courses cove...

3 October 1, 2003 The University News Arts & Entertainment Pro essor j uggles teaching and performing by Luisa Torres A&E Editor During the first two weeks of classes, students of the drama department met with an unfamiliar sight: a closed door at the office of professor Chamblee Fergson. No he had not gone missing; he was briefly troubled with the need to be in two places at once (a condition that affects many of the drama faculty and students). For the past seven weeks Fergson has been splitting his time between his duties as a member of the drama department faculty and his work at the Dallas Theater Center. Ferguson is currently cast in the role of Osric in theater's production of William Shakespeare's Hamlet. During regular rehearsal weeks, Ferguson found himself with a very full schedule. A typical Tuesday schedule looked something like this: -6:30 a.m. Wake up -8 a.m. Drop kids off at school -9:30 a.m. Teach Advanced Acting -11 a.m. Teach Acting I -12:20 p.m. Rush to r...

October 1, 2003 The University News Arts & Entertainment Reality TV star provides a Moment of Hope by Jodi Dickens Features Editor The television world considers Eric Nies, cast member during the first season of MTV's Real World, a pioneer of reality TV. But now he wants to use media for a more positive purposeā€”A Moment of Hope. A Moment of Hope is a non- profit organization aimed at educating and empowering children so they may work for a peaceful world, Nies said. Nies began the organization in response to the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11,2001, where, he said, "a wave of fear traveled around the globe:' "The world stopped that day," he said. The attacks raised concerns for safety, not only in the U.S., but across the globe, Nies said. Now people live in fear. "You can be in power or have no power;' he said. "If you're in power, then you won't live in fear." Nies sees education as a means to end this powerlessness and fear. "Power comes with knowing who you are and where you c...

That's the story here." That's what Dallas Cowboys return man Uriel Smith told Sports Il- lustrated writer Peter King in an interview for the magazine. They are wise words for a rookie to have in his mouth, and I wonder if a rookie under last year's Dave Campo-coached Cowboys would have said them. I don't think so. Bill Parcells has changed this team. Last week I equated the skills of a great quarterback with those of a great poet. Let me extend the metaphor further. If the poet is the quarterback, then who is the quarterback's muse?

Kristin Condotta led the women, coming in at 19th place with a time of 22:19 on the 6K course. For the valiant runners on the UD cross-country team, the cur- rent season has been anything but a refreshing saunter through wooded trails and thickets. At the halfway point of the season, both the men and women remain upbeat despite the numerous set- backs that have consistently plagued them.

October 8, 2003 The University News News IRPS develops summer programs on Rome campus Liturgy and Sacraments, New Testament courses offered by Charla Bowman Contributing Writer The Institute of Religious and Pastoral Studies sponsored its first summer program in Rome last May and June. Eight students had the oppor- tunity to earn six graduate cred- its toward their degrees through the program, and one student earned undergraduate credit. Students from Colorado, Mis- souri, Louisiana, and Texas spent three weeks studying at Due Santi, the UD Rome cam- pus. Dr. Brian Schmisek, director of the IRPS, recalled one student commenting; You shouldn't call it a campus. You should call it a resort." "If you're going to do a sum- mer program, why not do it in Rome?" Schmisek said of his decision to start a program in Rome. "It seemed to me that we were the only graduate program in ministry that had a campus in Rome/' Two courses were offered: Liturgy and Sacraments, and New Testament. Dr. John...

In Toledo, people recognized us even when we weren't in our uniform and they would ask us to sing everywhere we went;' Schwartz said. "In Rome, it should have been us that thought we were privileged to smg at the Sistine Chapel, but they were so ecstatic to have us there that the coordinator gave us a private tour. He respected Mrs. Walker so much," she said. Perhaps this respect came because groups like Collegium are hard to find, Walker said. "I am truly convinced that there is not another choir in the U.S. that does this the way we do it," she said. "Lots sing this kind of music, but none sing it exclusively. Our whole purpose is to present, not perform, the music in the contexts that are appropriate for it. It is not museum or concert music. It is Mass music; and when it is performed as such, it cannot but effect us, both those who have delved deeply i...

October 8, 2003 The University News News Dublin professor asserts idealism o John Scottus Zach Czaia Sports Editor "No one can enter into heaven except through philosophy." This is the challenge given by the ninth century philosopher, John Scottus Eriugena. In his speech Friday afternoon, profes- sor Derniot Mo ran of University College Dublin, argued that Enugena's philosophy is essen- tially a medieval version of mod- ern idealism. "Because idealism itself is a modern concept, the first thing to do is to overcome the anach- ronistic barrier," Moran said. Moran argued that to over- come this barrier one had to see the history of idealism as it has developed through the centuries: first with Plato and his concep- tion of the "One," then reformu- lated by Aristotle, and finally the idea of the "One" incorporated into Augustine's model of Chris- tianity. "Ultimately, under the mod- ern conception of idealism, nothing exists except the mind and God," Moran said. Moran stressed that Eur...

Sunday's Family Day was technically the first event of Charity Week. A moon walk, face painting, a beanbag throw and several other stations for children were set up outside the Church of the Incarnation. The event made $400 for charity, an unusally large amount, compared to past years. Francois called it a ''very encouraging start for the rest of the week:' Air band, a lip synch competition, opened Charity Week on Monday night. There were about a dozen performances, ranging from five mmute 80s melodies to boy band hits. Francois had "the scariest moment of my entire life" when the power went out halfway through the program. It took an at-home phone call to a facilities worker to find the breaker, and Francois ran as fast as she could to get to it. It all happened in a matter of minutes, she said. The crowd, surprised by the power failure, cheered wh...

The University News October 8, 2003 ws a native of Vienna, Austria, a notorious magic man having just finished a tour across Texas. Butman's magical performance was brief - no rabbits or silk scarves were involved - but was the cause of much puzzlement, as he dashed off after flicking oft"his audience. Afterwards, Rueda, somewhat worse for the wear after his charitable performances, wore a back brace and complained of pain. McGuigan summed up Rueda's feelings by saying "All we have to say is that we are thankful...the only person who isn't thankful is Jack's lumbar region" The semi-formal Saturday night was another success, drawing a crowd that didn't want to leave, even after the music ended. "Everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. It was lots of fun," said Francois. When asked about her newfound free time, Francois said that she and her co- chair Dianne Vaughn would both use it to '"pick up the pieces of our academic lives." * Breaking It Down: Jail: $5,000 Family Day: $400 Ai...

The whoosh of the milk foamer. The slam of the cash drawer. Another shift at the cap bar has begun. I wipe down the counters and check the grinder level, beginning the process of catering to students' addictions by providing their much-needed espresso beverages in exchange for a relatively small amount of money. Ever since I began working at the cap bar first semester of freshman year, I have loved it. Not only do I get perks like free coffee and a nice-smelling workplace, but also I am essentially getting paid to provide people with something that makes them happy. Senior Maty Jo White agrees with me: "I've had four on- campus jobs and this is the best one;' she said.

"Something funny" is the immediate appeal of the latest mainstage production set to open at the Margaret Jonnson Theater. The Becmx 'Stratagem is an English comedy written in 1707 by a "remarkable young writer, Geoige Farquhar." Kelley said. The play is almost 300 years old but is "alive with a plot, characters, a milieu, and issues that intrigue, delight and surprise" The world of the play is 18th century England, not the high life city of London, but the rural setting of Litchfield, Shropshire. "Farquhar knew this kind of place well, and he brings it to life vividly," Kelley said. In this world social classes prevailed and shaped life in ways modern audien...

12 October 8, 2003 The University News Arts & Entertainment Jack Black rocks in latest ilm by F, S. Movie Reviewer Though he's played a surprisingly wide variety of supporting parts in films since his debut in Bob Roberts in 1992, Jack Black has always had a special affinity for roles involving rock. He's still probably best known for his turn as a fanatic music store employee and would-be performer in High Fidelity., and his stint as lead singer in the comedy group Tenacious D has made him an MTV favorite. Now Black takes on his first solo lead in a funny, manic comedy titled School of Rock. He plays Dewey Finn, an obsessed guitarist who cons a posh elementary school into taking him on as a substitute teacher and trains his fourth- grade students to form a band. "There was some concern going into it," Black admitted with a touch of sarcasm during a recent Dallas interview. "They say you're never supposed to work with kids or animals.

October 8, 2003 The University News 13 Sports Intramural football action heating up Whether it is a kid on his old- school skateboard (probably wearing a Poison t-shirt) negotiating a drained pool for the first time, or a world champion miler stepping up to the starting line, athletes the world over share a common code: a refusal to surrender. Yes, I liken athletics to a battle. Just like the Spartans fighting in the shade of Persian arrows, so too must an athlete refuse to give up at any point, fighting for success, even when the odds are poor. Steve Hendrickson, a player for the San Diego Chargers back in the late 8CFs and early 90's once said, "I'd catch a punt naked in the snow in Buffalo for a chance to play in the NFL." Having played and officiated several intramural games thus far, I think a lot of UD football athletes have this same attitude about making the playoffs. Their intensity has sparked serious competition. Tempers have even flared up a bit. Instead of being upset b...
