Background checks a necessary part of gun control [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 3 December 1998

Background checks a necessary part of gun control One Flew Over the Albatross'Nest ANNE RAJOTTE With the start of this year's buck season, a new law was enacted requiring background checks on prospective buyers of rifles and shotguns. Those selling guns are now required to call the state police, who will run a background check on anyone who wishes to purchase a rifle.' There are similar laws in effect dealing with other types of firearms. Not unexpectedly, the new law angers many people. Many who oppose this type of background check are once again claiming their rights are being violated. The National Rifle Association (NRA), who claim to be "freedom fighters" and protectors of second amendment rights, are longtime opponents of measures such as these. There is no logical reason for people to be opposed to background checks, whether you are purchasing a handgun or a rifle. With past incidents of children getting ahold of their parents' guns and bringing them to school and k...

Pie protests cream UC officials [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 3 December 1998

Pie protests cream UC officials By Christine Tatum College Press Exchange BERKELEY, Calif. - Agents of the Biotic Baking Brigade have struck again, this time launching pies at officials of UC-Berkeley and UCDavis and at heads of Novartis Inc., one of the world's largest biotechnology and agrochemical corporations. The Nov. 23 patisserie protests were the sixth and seventh "pieings" in about a month. Members of the BBB, as they call themselves, have smashed custard into the kissers ot five other public figures, including San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown, Nobel Laureate Milton Friedman and Carl Pope, executive director of the Sierra Club. The group, which includes a few local college students, says it hurls pies into prominent faces to call public attention to various social and environmental issues. So far, its ploy has worked. Stories of the group's attacks - in which only one protester has been injured so far - have landed on newscasts and newspaper fronts across the countr...

Emporia State drops ban on discrimination against gay students [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 3 December 1998

Emporia State drops ban on discrimination against gay students College Press Exchange EMPORIA, Kan. (CPX) - Emporia State University has dropped a clause prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation from its student handbook and affirmative-action literature. University President Kay K. Schallenkamp ordered the revision last summer, but word of the change didn't filter down to many faculty members and students until this fall. Now, teachers and students are organizing a teach-in in January to discuss why it's important to protect gay people from sexual discrimination. About six years ago, university officials added the antidiscrimination clause to the policy, joining about 350 colleges across the nation offering similar protection. But with the latest change, Emporia's policy now states it will not discriminate "on grounds of race, color, gender, national origin or ancestry, age, disability and Vietnam Era veteran status." Attorneys suggested that Schallenkamp remo...

Racial incidents at Cornell prompt administrative action [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 3 December 1998

Racial incidents at Cornell prompt administrative action College Press Exchange ITHACA, N.Y. (CPX) - A string of racial incidents at Cornell University has prompted school officials to increase security on campus. Students living in a dormitory primarily for African Americans, called Ujamaa, have received anonymous, threatening telephone calls warning that black students "should get off campus." Someone also left racially charged messages that referred to the Ku Klux Klan on an answering machine belonging to a black residence hall supervisor. Other racially charged incidents have been more subtle, university officials say. A cartoon recently printed by the student newspaper, The Cornell Review, depicted a house owned by the Native American student program as a gambling casino. The newspaper defended the cartoon as a parody, but Cornell President Hunter Rawlings denounced it as "the group stereotyping we all deplore." "These incidents, and others like them, are totally intole...

Police Blotter: A Look At Campus Crime Briefs By Peter Levine Campus Correspondent University of Wisconsin CollegeJPress Exchange TUCSON, Ariz. (CPX) - Someone made off with a fiberglass fish mounted on a wall in the University of Arizona's biological sciences building. According to the Daily Wildcat, a university employee reported the fake, finned creature - valued at $1,200 - missing on Nov. 20.

Economics professor sells rights to sex-change story [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 3 December 1998

Economics professor sells rights to sex-change story College Press Exchange CHICAGO (CPX) - It's not every day that a university press pays big bucks for the memoir of an economics professor. But the memoir of an economics professor who has had a sex change is a different story. The University of Chicago has paid Dierdre McCloskey a $20,000 advance for her autobiography. which is currently titled Crossing: A Memior. While the sum is chump change in the industry of trade publishing, it's an unusually high price to be paid by a university press. The author was formerly Donald McCloskey, a widely respected economist at the University of Iowa who stunned family, friends and colleagues in 1995 when he announced his decision to become a woman. In the book, due out next fall, McCloskey plans to chronicle his decision to become a woman and to describe the reactions of his wife of 30 years, who eventually divorced him, and of a sister and former colleague, who McCloskey said tried ...

S. Africa slow to react to rise in AIDS infections [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 3 December 1998

S. Africa slow to react to rise in AIDS infections By Lynne Duke The Washington Post JOHANNESBURG, South Africa -- As the startling spread of AIDS in Africa continues to thwart the continent's development, South Africa - the region's economic powerhouse - is showing such rapid AIDS growth that overall life expectancy here could fall by nearly a third over the next decade. About 14 percent of South Africa's 32 million people are infected with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), which causes AIDS, and 1,500 more are diagnosed with the virus each day, according to government statistics. If the virus' spread continues as it is now, South Africa's overall life expectancy could fall from around 68 years to 48 years in the first decade of the new millennium, according to government and U.N. statistics. Long sheltered from AIDS because of its international isolation under apartheid, South Africa's post-apartheid AIDS epidemic now is helping to fuel southern Africa's dubious dist...

6 weeks in an Arctic hut [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 3 December 1998

6 weeks in an Arctic hut By Kevin Sullivan and Mary Jordan The Washington Post TOKYO - They survived on cold porridge and rice and endured nightly visits from polar bears who clawed on the door of their tiny hut. For a month and a half, three filmmakers stranded by blizzards on a desolate Russian island above the Arctic Circle mostly sat in the darkness to conserve fuel and communicated by e-mail with would-be rescuers on three continents. For six weeks blizzards raged across the mountains of Wrangel Island in the East Siberian Sea. The two-room research hut was in darkness 21 hours a day, with only three hours of weak twilight. The men had three books: one in each of their native languages. By last weekend, their food was nearly exhausted, with no way to get supplies in or them out. Then Tuesday, the weather cleared just enough for a helicopter to make the trip across the frozen sea, pick the men up and carry them to safety on the Siberian mainland. Tuesday night, they were...

New evidence suggests Earhart died on Nikumaroro Island [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 3 December 1998

New evidence suggests Earhart died on Nikumaroro Island By Thomas H. Maugh II Los Angeles Times American researchers have discovered new evidence, long buried in British military archives, suggesting that famed U.S. aviator Amelia Earhart died on Nikumaroro Island in the Polynesian Republic of Kiribati. British soldiers found bones on the island, then called Gardner Island, in 1940, and suspecting they might be those of Earhart, sent them to British headquarters in Tarawa. A physician there concluded that they were the bones of a male. A report was forwarded to England, but Americans were never notified of the discovery. A member of The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery (TIGHAR), a nonprofit group that has been searching for evidence of Earhart's demise for 10 years, stumbled across some of the records in Tarawa. This prompted TIGHAR director Richard Gillespie to locate the original archival material in England. Precise dimensions of the bones taken from the...

Guns prove fatal to Missouri speed trap [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 3 December 1998

Guns prove fatal to Missouri speed trap By Jon Jeter The Washington Post MACK'S CREEK, Mo. - Used to be that this leisurely little town handed out traffic tickets like surplus government cheese. And the police here didn't discriminate. They ticketed just about anyone who dared drive through this no-stoplight town on Missouri's back roads. They ticketed motorists for speeding. They ticketed them for tailgating and for failing to signal a turn. They stopped motorists who grazed the white lines on the shoulder of the road. They pulled over truckers and tourists and little old ladies who were in no particular hurry and swore they had never sped a day in their lives. One officer here threatened to ticket a boy on his bicycle. Another pulled over a man riding horseback. Seems neither had a taillight. "If you weren't local," said Cindy Meads, a waitress at Bonnie's Restaurant here, "you got a ticket. That's pretty much the way things worked." At the height of this town's campaign o...

Church Brew Works is a heavenly good time [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 3 December 1998

Church Brew Works is a heavenly good time By Roger Burlingame staff writer During our very lengthy Thanksgiving break, I had the opportunity to be in Pittsburgh, where I was lucky enough to visit The Church Brew Works. This restaurant located on Liberty Ave. is just outside ot Bloomfield. It is a church which has been renovated and transformed into a restaurant/brewery. The Church Brew is somewhat like Hoppers hero in Erie, in that the beer is made on the premises and one can even view the vast kegs where the beer is brewed. At The Church Brew Works, the massive kegs are placed on the altar, where all the people can look upon them. And there will be great rejoicing! The atmosphere was wonderful. The cathedral ceilings and the stained BlaSS Windows were nil reminkrpnt of an ancient European Catholic Church. The seating is situated in the auditorium and is quite spacious. The custom cut oak bar is about fifty feet long and is also very beautiful. The bartender was our waitress...

Website of the week [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 3 December 1998

Website of the week Dave Young staff writer Did you ever wonder where William Shakespeare or Tupac Shakur is buried? Neither did I, but it is still pretty cool to be able to see a picture of their grave site or tombstone. Find A Grave, located at <www. findagrave. com>, will tell you where virtually every noteworthy person to ever walk the earth is buried. You can find people who lived all the way back in the 1600's. You can search for a person by name, location, or claim to fame. You can even look up the memorial site for John Belushi, which is just a big stone that says BELUSHI with a bottle of beer and a Chicago Cubs hat in front. You can also see pictures of memorial sites such as the one for the Oklahoma City bombing. Also available through this web site are actual copies of some famous people's wills. Although the list isn't as big as the list of grave sites, you can see wills from celebrities such as Elvis or Princess Diana. This is a very interesting ...

Enemy of the State is a slight disappointment [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 3 December 1998

Enemy of the State is a slight disappointment By Michael Coursey staff writer I saw Enemy of the State this week and wasn't sure what to expect. I thought maybe it might be a military/ techno-type thriller, similar to Tom Clancy's films. However, I was somewhat disappointed. The movie starred Will Smith, Regina King and Gene Hackman. The film started out like a thoroughbred at the Kentucky Derby, but didn't know when to let up on the reins. Robert Dean (Smith), a Washington, D.C. area labor lawyer, who was leading the ideal life until it started to unravel when he became entangled in an NSA (National Security Agency) operation. It opens with Will Smith discussing the tough handed tactics of labor/ mob boss Mr. Pintero (Tom Sizemore) who is cast as the typical greasy, over weight, obnoxious, Italian-American mobster. Dean and Pintero are put at odds when Dean reveals that he has a video that could put Pintero back in the Federal Penitentiary for 15 years. The plot shifts as D...
