12 September 5, 2001 Commentary The University News EDITORIAL Web offers students lower priced books Students share the same financial gripes at the begin mng of every semester: the business office over- charged, Aramark costs more than it's worth, and the bookstore is just too pricey. Because of the bookstore's monopoly, it's no wonder students will spend upwards of $400 dollars per semester on books. Though other vendors exist, from Barnes and Noble toAmazon.com, convenience-driven students often only seek the books within walking distance. Fortunately, the new online service Blackmarket Books works within the UD community to let students set their own terms for buying and selling textbooks. Blackmarket Books was initiated by senior Stephen Little to provide an alternative to high bookstore prices. The website's workings are simple. If someone has a book, he or she posts the author, the title and other pertinent information on the online list. He or she also provides an email addr...

The University News Commentary September 5, 2001 13 Who owns your genes? New patents trade discovery for dollars 6 Katherine Cook Commentary Editor Patents are useful: they protect inventors and in- novators from theft. But where do we draw the line for what can and cannot be patented? According to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (PTO), 20,000 genes (both human and otherwise) have been patented; 25,000 more patents on genetic information are pending. If material inside my body is eligible for a patent is my possession of my own genes a patent infringement? Must I pay Phizer pharmaceutical company royalties for my very existence? Sarcasm aside, these patents have an adverse affect on the scientific commu- nity as a whole. In the past, a scientist was one who researched and then shared that research in a paper. Now, instead, we have a group of arrogant businessmen in lab coats. This new generation of research- ers is more concerned about personal recognition and profit than disco...

Fr. John Lydon, O.P., and Brother Jeffery Ott, O.P., joined UD as the new chaplain and campus minister, respectively, on July 15. Fr. Lydon and Bro. Jeffery are two of the three new Dominicans joining UD's staff this semester. The university has been with- out an acting chaplain since Msgr. Bell left in the spring of 2000. Fr. Lydon spent the last three years as the volunteer coordinator and assistant campus minister at Barry University in Miami, Fla. Prior to that position, Fr. Lydon was in Berkeley, Calif., as a cam- pus minister. "This position is a great deal different from what I was doing before," Fr. Lydon said. "The responsibility is greater because I am ...

The University News University of Dallas, Irving, Texas Volume XXVI, Number 2 September 12,2.001 Rome numbers smaller as enrollment increases by Thomas Watson News Editor The small size of this fall's Rome class has left administra- tors and students shaking their heads. The current class of 84 stu- dents, the smallest Rome class since 1989, leaves the Rome campus 30 students shy of ca- pacity. Many of the suite rooms con- tain only two students, and some rooms are completely empty. Rome Office and Student Life administrators acknowledge that this small class is unusual, but they do not see it as a concern for future Rome applicants, "This current class seems to be an anomaly," Dr. Fred Zuker, dean of Enrollment and Student Life, said. Dr. Zuker cited a number of factors, from a smaller pool of applicants to a "higher level of review,"which contributed to the small class. "There are reasons for our basic standards. We shouldn't violate them simply to pack people in. That wouldn't be...

The University News News September 12,2001 3 Eternal Cities tour gives taste of Rome semester by Julie Dariaher Managing Editor For those students who cannot work the Rome semester into their sophomore year, there is a viable alternative. The Eternal Cities program is a two- week tour of Italy and Greece that stu- dents can take for three art history credits. "For anyone who gets out of sync with the norm, the program is a nice alterna- tive," senior Sarah Jett, who attended the program this summer, said. Started in 1985 as part of the 15-year Rome reunion, the Eternal Cities tour, though lesser known, is just as much a part of the UD tradition as the Rome program itself, "The first year I opened it to the public and tooksome alumni who were there for the Rome reunion,"Lyle Novinski, chair of the art department, said. "It was so suc- cessful that people suggested we make it a yearly affair and offer it for credit." The original tour covered only Italy, but it was later expanded to i...

4 September 12, 2001 Arts & Entertainment The University News Castings posted for mainstage, senior studios Senior directors collaborate to bring Shakespeare's Merchant to mainstage this semester By Paul Harkins Reporter Seniors Kate Farrington and Anjeanette Stokes announced castings for The Merchant of Ven- ice Friday. The pair will co-direct the Shakespearean comedy this semester in lieu of the standard Patrick Kelly-directed mainstage production. Auditions were heldThursday night in the Margaret Jonsson Theater, after which Farrington and Stokes wasted no time. Re- hearsal began Friday night for the show, which will run in late October. "It's both extremely intimidat- ing and wholly exhilarating," Far- rington said of the opportunity to direct Shakespeare. Merchant is the first Shake- speare play in the Margaret Jonsson Theatre since Macbeth was performed in 1998. For such a lively play, The Merchant ofVenice is laden with heavy issues.

The University News Arts & Entertainment September 12, 2001 5 Films highlight artists'work *ri video genre by Molly Tomutsa Contributing Writer University of Dallas'first video exhibition, Untilted (Bowers, Hamilton, Schwarz, Steinfeld), opened last Friday evening in Haggerty Gallery.The four artists, none of whom work exclusively in this media, used video to cap- ture human behavior in the five exhibited pieces. Each of the videos shows the viewer a different mental- ity (either from the outside or a manifestation of the in- side)—the seeming clash is characterized by the strange combination of noises that the solitary viewer hears upon entering the gallery. Everything from Pink Floyd, to the excited echoes of a high school basketball game, to the rush of conversation and traf- fic from a busy street, to a man cheerfully singing, "there's a doctor I found who can cure the boy," murmurs between the walls. "The pieces explore the many ways in which people look at themselves and o...

I) September 12, 2001 Features The University News Locked out? Get Hobbs Students find assistant dean role model, friend by Bekki Johannes Features Editor Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Is it Superman? No, but stu- dents say she might as well be. Students say she's enthusiastic, loving, and inspira- tional. Who is this tireless individual? She is Amber Hobbs, assistant dean of Student Life and the East Quad, and she's on a mission. "My mission at the University of Dallas is first to love God, and second of all to love students, and part of loving them is like what my parents did for me, disciplining and providing opportunities for growth," Hobbs said. Hobbs is in charge of discipline for the East Quad, but she said addressing incident reports is the least favorite part of her job. Training, mentoring, and helping the resi- dent assistants (RAs) develop leadership skills is another aspect of her job, along with being in charge of advising the RHA council. But Hobbs' primary concern is ...

We were here for a while; and it seemed nice; but then about two weeks ago, it started getting really fun. There are people every- where; it is so much fun I do not think much about my brothers and sisters anymore. I think eveiyone thinks of me as a queen or something. I get treated better than anyone at the school. I never have to walk anywhere and people are always stopping to talk to me - it is so much fun! People are so nice! They just come over and scratch my tummy; it is so much fun. When Daddy and I are outside, I l...

^ September 12, 2001 Sports The University News Hot Sports Opinion Near-perfection reveals passion for game by Jack Price Sports Editor Loyal University News readers, please extend me the latitude to step away from objectivity and journalistic writing for a week and speak as a fan of the great game. Though I spend ev- ery day of my life as a baseball fan, there are times when, as with all things, the game of baseball may become something I take for granted. While I still see the outstanding in- dividual performance four to six times per day via the miracle of ESPNEWS, I find myself seldom able to enjoy the entirety of a single great ballgame among the thousands played annually. However, my love and intensity for the great game was renewed recently as I, along with two fellow fans and one unfortunate bystander, became involved in one of the most bizarre listening parties of which I have ever been a part. The scene is relatively simple: a large group of UD students meet up in order to...

10 September 12, 2001 Commentary The University News EDITORIAL Charity Week needs focus ori service With the reunion of the junior class after a semester sepa- rated by the Atlantic Ocean, the returning Romers are eager to make this year's Charity Week a success. This October, like every October, the students of UD will spend thousands of dollars to send carnations, vote for Rome photos, lip-sink in costumes, purchase men for slave labor and throw friends in jail. Charity Week is an excellent time for UD to show off its school spirit, while raising money for charitable organizations. Still, more can come from this Crusader tradition. This year, The University News encourages the class of 2003, especially Jean Rekowski and Margaret Wilson, Charity Week co-chairs, to make the week more than just a Homecoming without a football game and a queen - we challenge you to make Charity Week live up to its name. We should be mindful that Charity Week was created years ago as a week of service ...

The University News Commentary September 12,2001 J J Senate will miss staunch Republican stalwarts Jasori L. Van Dyke Guest Columnist 2001 has certainly been one of the busiest years in the political arena for the past decade. We have seen the inaugura- tion of a new President and the beginning of a Republican administration. We have seen the defection of a Republican Senator, costing his party control of the United States Sen- ate. We have already read reports of what we might expect in the near future, such as a face-off for governor be- tween Jeb Bush and Janet Reno in Florida. It seems as if things are already heating up for an election that is more than one year away. Unfortunately, conservatives will soon be losing two of their most principled and valued leaders in the U.S. Senate: Phil Gramm and Jesse Helms. It did not take long after both gentlemen made their retire- ment announcements for the liberal media to run editorials de- nouncing their careers.The only things that ca...

4 September 19, 2001 Arts & Entertainment The University News Chess club revived; age-old game resurrected by Michael Lyons A & E Editor For generations mankind has played the game of chess. Its origins are ancient. The Moors introduced it to the Spanish, the Spanish introduced it to the English, the English - okay, no need to belabor the point. To play a game of chess is an intellectually stimulating pursuit. It can be maddening and addictive, even sexy (or so said Dr. Scott Crider in Rome in his lectures on The Tempest). But above all, chess is fun. And now at UD, it is organized fur The origin of organized, club-formatted chess on the UD campus is not ancient. In fact, UD's first formal chess club, Rook Chess Club, was born but two years ago under the (not so) watchful eyes of senior Brian Potts and recent UD graduate Randall Novak. Under Potts and Novak, the club existed in a somewhat disorganized state. Meetings were infrequent; and when they were held, attendance was s...
