12 September 15, 2004 The University News Arts & Entertainment Shutterbugs, grifters. kidnappers fill screens by FS Movie Reviewer The violent, manipulative Paparazzi (wide release) might well be producer Mel Gibson's wish fulfillment fantasy: it's a vigilante justice yarn about a Hollywood action star who takes matters into his own hands when his wife and son are severely injured in a Princess Diana-style car crash caused by four sleazy cameramen, and the police prove incapable of bringing them to task. It's a brutal, amoral picture—a sort of Death Wish for celebrities— in which the hero not only gets away with four murders—the first partially an accident, but the others quite intentional—but feels good about it. And the viewer is expected, like the detective on the case, to think that's perfectly fine. Ugh. It's possible that people who haven't seen the Argentinean Nine Queens will be fooled by the twists in the American remake Criminal (Landmark Magnolia, Angelika Film Center...

September 15, 2004 The University News 13 Arts & Entertainment rintmaker Sanders visits UD for Matrix program by Vanessa Bruce A&E Editor Good students start out on the right foot this semester by taking good notes and keeping up with their reading. Bad students have not started reading yet because their brains recoil in horror at the sight of pages filled with words. Slackers, fear not. Jean Sanders' recent prints featured through Sept. 29 in the Upper Gallery, will soothe those typography terrors. Pages of Thomas explores the subtle, artistic quality of fonts, both handwritten and typed. In Sanders' work, the beauty is in the details. Details such as hair-thin lines, gold leaf, a splash of saffron orange color, small rippling wrinkles, water marks in the handmade linen and abaca papers, and thin threads binding and dividing the pages into two balanced halves create delicate, yet mysterious, compositions. Sanders says her work has "a strong spiritual pull" and is greatly in...

14 September 15, 2004 The University News Sports Vatican inaugurates sports department, Dickens characters share in brotherhood This summer, Pope John Paul II created a Vatican sports depart- ment. Vatican officials said one of the directives of the program was to foster a "sports culture that promotes a vision of sports activ- ity as a means of integral personal growth and as an instrument in the service of peace and brother- hood among people." In my mind, this is one of the more ambitious projects of the current papacy. It is not a surpris- ing thing that a department like this has been set up. In fact, critics of the Church might express their surprise that Catholics have not dangled their overlong tentacles into sporting arenas long before now. For a church that claims the power of sanctifying the basic ele- ments of the universe, it shouldn't be a big deal, 'making holy' on badminton and basketball courts around the world. Or is it a big deal? The current pontiff, himself a on...

September 15, 2004 The University News 15 Sports Cross-country results: Both teams finish second Hoggies dominate round robin by Bryan Esposito Contributing Writer A 3:30 a.m. departure time last Saturday couldn't prevent the UD men's and women's cross-country teams from capturing second place finishes at the McMurry Invitational in Abilene. The meet took the form of a relay as runners ran in pairs; each woman ran 2870 meters, and each male ran 3010 meters. Numerous runners were con- fused by the layout of the course; flag markers seemed strewn about haphazardly and both Kristen Condotta and Kayla Camara said they had to stop during the race to figure out the proper path. The distances of the course were also rather strange: the girls were told before the race that they would only run two miles. The of- ficials in charge gave no plausible account for this deception. One of the highlights of the meet was the opportunity for the runners to name their relay team. The men were led by th...

Universit Palla% ews Volume XXXIV, Number 3 University of Dallas, Irving, Texas September 22, 2004 Orpheion to close a ter wel th Night 9pc eion ORPHtlOM Joe Schuler/University News Graduate student Peter Heyne and others involved in Twelfth Night have been given permission to reconstruct the set for the production of the play. by Lincy George News Editor The Orpheion, UD's outdoor theater, will host its last play, at least for now, on Family Weekend, Oct. 2-3. The administration recently withdrew permission for the independent student productions, Twelfth Night and Magic, to perform at the theater citing liability concerns. Toward the end of last week, however, administration and Student Government were able to work out a temporary solution for the Orpheion. "We are doing our show exactly as planned in the Orpheion," Peter Heyne, graduate student and director of Twelfth Night, said. Over the summer, Heyne had built a set for use in Twelfth Night, but the lack of clear, formal respo...

September 22, 2004 The University News 3 News Former understanding of U.S. Constitution has changed, Jones tells attendees at annual university celebration by Monica Bond Features Editor The Founding Fathers' understanding of freedom and the role of government is distinctly different from the modern liberal understanding, Dr. Tiffany Jones proposed in her speech Is 'the story of America... the story ofexpanding liberty.? at the University of Dallas' 29th Annual Constitution Day Dinner. Jones borrowed President Lincoln's analogy that the Constitution is "the 'picture of silver' that frames the 'apple of gold', the 'apple of gold' being understood as the principle of 'liberty for all."' Jones questioned whether this "apple of gold" was being preserved intact. The Constitution, Jones proposed, is a means to an end, the value of which depends on its ability to affect that end. The role of the Constitution, Jones said, is "to carry into effect the great purpose of government announced in...

September 22, 2004 The University News 5 News Fr. Balas celebrates golden ubilee of priesthood by Lincy George News Editor Fr. David Balas, O. Cist, and theology professor, celebrated 50 years of priesthood last Sunday with students and faculty of the University of Dallas, among others. Looking back, Balas said his decision to join the Cistercians was a gradual one. He first became concerned about the importance of God in his life when he was 14 years old. "I was in Cistercian prep school in Budapest. My form master was a very good religion teacher. We studied about God, the existence C>f God. [Once] I was alone in the apartment [where we lived] thinking about what I studied. I realized that if God is the only courtesy Sybil Novinski/Archives Fr.

September 22, 2004 The University News Q Commentary Extreme environmentalist frustrates editor, warns of looming oil crisis One of the things I love about the University of Dallas is that it shelters me from crazy environ- mentalists. All of our conservative, Republican views have created a force field that protects us from liberal tree huggers. Unfortunately this force field was penetrated by a woman (I will call her Sally) who called the newsroom to enlist the help of The University News to spread the word that our oil supply will run out around next Thanksgiving, Sally did not tell me her urgent news up front. She first expound- ed on her connections with artists and writers, her attendance at many universities, the fact that a book is forthcoming on the article topic, and that the University of Texas at Arlington has already agreed to publish the article she wanted to send me. This chatter lasted for at least five minutes. I still did not know anything about the article except t...

10 September 22, 2004 The University News Commentary Technology gains power over people Prevot argues Putin by Vanessa Bruce A&E Editor Ask yourself, do I have power over technology, or does technol- ogy have power over me? Ideally, technology makes our lives easier by simplifying everyday tasks, leaving more time for leisure. Yet, sometimes we spend hours a day in an attempt to understand how technology operates. The technological capacity of a household appliance or gadget is inversely proportionate to how much time the consumer spends installing it, learning how to use it, and repairing it. Satellite television, complex en- tertainment systems, printers, and cell phones all abide by this rule. The fact that people tolerate spending hours a week tinkering with these products indicates most Americans have a crippling dependency on the technology within their homes. In a time and place not so far away, the average person lived happily without the products we now could not do wit...

September 22, 2004 The University News 11 Arts & Entertainment Captain hits visual high, Evil sinks to narrative low by FS Movie Reviewer Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow (wide release) is a technical marvel—a film in which only the actors, and a few props in the foreground, are real; everything else is computer-gen- erated, from huge cityscapes and Nepalese mountain peaks to giant robots and flying landing strips. The effect is visually ravish- ing—a stream of blue-grey im- ages that make for an art-deco wonderland. But the story—which is noth- ing more than a string of cliches drawn from Saturday-morning serials of the 1940s—doesn't hold interest very long, and the lead couple—a stalwart flyboy superhero (a poorly cast Jude Law) and the hard-bitten but gorgeous newspaperwoman (Gwyneth Paltrow) with whom he has a love- hate relationship—are never more than caricatures. So Sky Captain, for all its elegance, proves more Rocketeer than Indiana Jones. Baseball fans may get a f...

September 22, 2004 The University News 13 Arts & Entertainment Permanent collection opens in Haggerty Gallery by Vanessa Bruce A&E Editor During the month of Sep- tember, the Haggerty Gallery is featuring selections from the University of Dallas Permanent Collection. Curated by art depart- ment chair Prof Lyle Novinski, the exhibit encompasses a wide range of art and craft given to the university by patrons and alumni over the years. The oldest work in the collec- tion is a Roman candlestick base, dating to the second century, topped with a candleholder from Verona, Italy, dating to the 16th century. The piece was originally part of the William Randolph Hearst collection at San Simeon, California and was donated to UD by Mrs. Ray Dowling. The Roman candlestick is one of many ancient gems in the col- lection. Manuscript pages from a 15th century Latin prayer book are on display, as well as an embroi- dered silk robe, gift of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Torian. The robe is believed to...

14 September 22, 2004 The University News Sports Groundhogs dominate U D in last preseason game Adam Fritcher breaks away from the scrum, running past liTD's defense in the Hoggies' final preseason game last Saturday. Eric Martinez/ University News by Chris Botto Contributing Writer It is amazing how quickly a friend turns to foe simply by donning an opposite-colored jersey. Last Saturday, the University ofTexas at Dallas (UTD) stepped foot on the Hoggies' home pitch to find a strong rotation of 15 fresh legs in each of the four periods. Forty-five eager ruggers laced up their boots and tight- ened their cleats with three thoughts weighing on their minds—run hard, tackle strong, and make an impression. On this day, every player, old and new, had to prove to the coaches, the fans, their team- mates, and —most importantly, the pitch—that they have more than talent, more than quick feet and a quick mind. They had to prove that they have the heart to go 80 minutes and "leave it all on t...

September 22, 2004 The University News 15 Sports Defending Sydney Carton, ESPN Classic Sports fan, do you ever wonder sometimes what you would do without ESPN? I don't. In fact, I have never really been in the habit of watching it. But this summer, something almost made me a be- liever in this cable megalith. I am talking about the phenomenon known as ESPN Classic. It was game six of the '88 NBA Finals I had the pleasure of watch- ing. Ah, and such a pleasure it was! The Detroit Pistons and L.A. Lak- ers. Dennis Rodman, sans tattoos, was grabbing rebounds, looking nervous, and missing all kinds of free throws. Earvin "Magic" Johnson was dishing out assists. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was sink- ing hook shots. Isaiah Thomas drained rainbow-arced jump shots from all over the court. I already knew while I watched the game that the Pistons would eventually lose to the Lakers. But I continued to watch. It was like a whole different NBA-world I was seeing. A world where play- ers pushed the ball...
