Every year women, children and in some cases men, report being the victim of Domestic Violence. For those that don’t report it, fear is the ruling emotion Photo courtesy of mctcampus.com

By: Dennis Gosnell Assignment Editor

With October being domestic violence awareness month, the Rose State Domestic Violence Committee and the Special Services Office held a special viewing of “Telling Amy’s Story.” “Telling Amy’s Story” is a documentary about the tragic end of one particular abusive relationship. Amy Homan McGee lived in Centre County Pennsylvania. She was the wife of Vincent McGee, and the mother of two children. In November 2001, Vincent murdered Amy after she attempted to put an end to their relationship. The documentary examines the tale of Amy and Vincent’s relationship. From the first time they met to the last day of Amy’s life. The footage captures the viewer’s attention and shows the steps taken to end the abuse. As a viewer watching the film, it’s possible to grasp the sheer impossibility of the situation. The

feeling of hopelessness described, the fear Vincent instilled in Amy, the control he had over her, caused her to seek escape. When Amy attempted to leave the place of abuse, Vincent would just follow her. Watching the movie, a sense of trepidation wraps around the idea of what is right. The documentary shows how a victim’s individuality is erased, and how the path they were on is changed. They become encased in the toxic nature of abuse. Women, children, and in some cases men, suffer abuse everyday throughout the world. “One of four women regardless of age, will at sometime in their life, be a victim of domestic violence,” Janet Griffith, Counselor for Students with Disabilities, said. When considering the millions of women that live in the U.S., a quarter of that population is abused. The numbers are mind-boggling. Yet the most anyone can do for those abuse

victims is to open their arms and hope to give some form of support to enable and help them escape. At the end of Telling Amy’s Story, Detective Deirdri Fishel said, “every time I tell this, I think to myself, make it end differently, make it end with a happy ending, and I can’t because it really happened.” Domestic violence abuse, whether physical or emotional, takes a toll on a person’s will to live. If anyone reading this story needs help, or wishes to help someone else, know that help is available. There is a Domestic Violence hotline (1-800-799-SAFE), or contact Oklahoma Coalition Against Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault at 405-524-0700. There are two certified counselors available to students who can help find resources for those suffering from domestic violence. They can be reached at 405-733-7373 or visited at the Special Services Office in the Student Center, room 101.

T h e Tr u t h i n e s s o f W i k i p e d i a By: Chelsea Ratterman Assistant Editor

On Oct. 7, the Great Issues Lecture Series commenced with a lecture by Caryl Gibbs, Professor of English, on “Truthiness, Wikipedia, and the Democratization of Information.” In the modern day, print has been downsized since the advent of the Internet and its numerous ways to get massive amounts of information nearly instantaneously. It has also enabled people to post their truth on blogs, which may not be reality, but is that person’s truth. Without editors to look for historical and information errors, blog posts can stand as truth until being knocked down by someone else, who can disprove it or submits their own truth. Truth has evolved over the centuries, being redefined by philosophers to fit a time period. The term truthiness was coined by Stephen Colbert in 2005, is defined as meaning a truth known from the gut, and was later placed in Merriam Webster after winning the 2006 Word of the Year, by online

survey. While truthiness has been a form of the word truthy, it has never had its own definition. Since truth may now be defined by gut instinct, the reality that knowledge may be incorrect is problematic. “Nothing requires me to know what I’m talking about,” Gibbs said. Discussing Wikipedia, Gibbs said any account holder could edit the articles on Wikipedia, thus blurring the lines of real truth vs. gut truth. “Wikipedia is the bane of a professor’s existence. We tell the students it’s a resource, not a source. It has its uses, with the sources listed at the bottom, but the page itself is not truth,” Gibbs said. Another term coined by Colbert was “wikiality” which is reality according to wiki, which is based upon an approval-by-consensus format where majority rules on an entry. According to Colbert, using this method “we can all create a reality we can all agree on.” The assumption of truth is delegated to the loudest voice in a majority rule society. The Great

Students were invited to come and talk to prospective employers, and meet with university advisers to talk about available transfer programs, Oct. 6 at the 2011 Career Fair. Besides the business and education opportunities at the event, there was an informative workshop on being careful about what people put online. “Stay on top of social networking. Why? Because employers look online. According to research, 44% look online all the time, some most of the time, and a very small percent rarely looks online.” Dr. Brian Perryman, director of Professional Training Center, said. According to the workshop, Facebook is the most common website used by employers to research current or future employees; so be careful about what is posted on personal status updates and which photos are uploaded. According to the workshop, inappropriate photos include • Photos containing alcohol • Photos of you or friends in revealing clothing

According to the “Safety first online” PSA, “Fame is fleeting, but the Internet is forever.”

Retirement Woes: Advice for the future By: Narges Taghavi Feature Editor

It is never too late to plan for retirement. On Oct. 4 and 5, the “Planning for Retirement Workshop” was held to provide many helpful details on the steps required before retirement. The speaker for the event was Jose Olivero, Social Security’s Public Affairs/Wage Reporting Specialist. His speech included a power point presentation, and the workshop laid out the steps to take before departing from the work place, as well as things to do with retirement benefits. The workshop discussed • Applying for retirement • Applying for disability • Applying for medicare • Estimating Your Feature Benefits • Requesting a Replacement Medicare Card • Applying for Extra Help With Prescription Drug Costs • If You Receive Benefits – Start or Do you have a nest egg put away for the future? Plan today to live for tomorrow. Change Direct Deposit, Change Photo courtesy of mctcampus.com Your Address, and Request a

Proof of Income Letter One topic Olivero mentioned was the fact that many people associate Social Security with the IRS. “Now don’t confuse us with our brothers from the IRS. We give, they take away.” Olivero said. Other information included the required 40 credits to qualify for benefits, which is a minimum of 10 working years. Another helpful tip was the percentage of benefits received for those who retire before the minimum retirement age, on the retirement age, or after the retirement age. The percentage of benefits according to the retirement age is • 6 2 Years Old (Before Retirement Age) 75% of Benefits • 6 6 Years Old (Retirement Age) 100% of Benefits • 7 0 Years Old (After Retirement Age) 132% of Benefits Some helpful sites for anyone looking into leaving or ready to leave the work place are http://www.mymoney. gov, http://www.choosetosave.org, and http://www.socialsecurity.gov.

Commit to complete: It is not just a slogan By: Dennis Gosnell Assignment Editor

With the widening job market, expanding world philosophy, and frustrating educational requirements, education becomes the foundation of stability for American economics. Thus, committing to an educational plan and setting a goal to receive an undergraduate degree, helps provide confidence for the current and future generation. “It’s not just quitting on yourself, it’s quitting on your country – and this country needs and values the talents of every American. That is why we will provide the support necessary for you to complete college and meet a new goal: by 2020, America will once again have the highest proportion of college graduates in the world,” President Obama said in a 2009 Joint Session of Congress Speech. Finding work has become difficult because the professional job market requires a higher education or job training be completed prior to employment. Community Colleges are the first step for 46% of Americans in achieving a career in the professional market, according to the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC). “Community colleges train 80% of the country’s police officers, firefighters and emergency medical technicians and more than half of its new nurses and health care workers. They are the go-to destinations for displaced workers and immigrants seeking language and cultural skills. Community colleges are where people most often go when they need to brush up on math or English before pursuing a college degree. And they have become increasingly attractive to families who can’t afford to send their kids to a fouryear school,” Mary Beth Marklein said, Aug. 1, 2008, USA Today. The drawback comes in the form of transferring from a two-year community college to a four-year state university. “Failing to complete the degree, allows universities to pick which courses they will or will not accept, forcing you to repeat classes or take additional classes, which will cost you added tuition, fees, and time,” Dr. Rod A. Risley, Executive Director Phi Theta Kappa, said. The Commit to Complete campaign is a hopeful answer to the President’s call to increase the number

of degrees and certificates earned, within a span of 10 years. The annual income an individual is likely to earn by completing a degree, increases and helps boost the economy by providing stimulus to job creation or business earnings. “It is exciting to see how many people signed the pledge banner. It’s not a commitment to the school; it’s about making a commitment to yourself to complete what you start,” Caryl Gibbs, RSC Co-advisor Phi Theta Kappa said.

Robots deliver steely competition

By: Chelsea Ratterman Assistant Editor

The robot boxing movie “Real Steel” debuted in theaters, having to contend with George Clooney’s political thriller “The Ides of March” and the continuing reign of “The Lion King 3D.” “Real Steel” is set in the near future where boxing is now in the metallic hands of robots, since they can sustain higher amounts of damage than human fighters. The boxing society is trying to maintain its humanity, in spite of the machines being the main source of profit. The robot industry serves as the backdrop for the true plot of the movie. Hugh Jackman plays a father who walked out on the child he suddenly finds himself caring for nearly 11 years later. No idea of who the kid truly is, or how to be a father, he takes his son along on his pursuit for robotic boxing fame. The classic hero vs. villain, little guy vs. big guy plot comes into play as the story progresses. The World Champion has essentially monopolized the boxing arena, leaving no room for new comers and upstarts. The pair traverses the country, making their way up the

ladder with their unlikely robot champion, Atom, to challenge the big guy, Zeus. “Real Steel“ is filled with emotion, as father and son come to understand each other against the backdrop of robot boxing. The end of the movie is left open enough for a possible sequel, and seeing as there is

already one in the works, it might have been planned like that from the start. Hugh Jackman, Evangeline Lilly, and Dakota Goyo make up the impeccable cast, and move the movie along with great acting. Sugar Ray Robinson trained Hugh Jackman for this movie, and the scenes where Jackman is seen

boxing and “shadow fighting” shows the boxers moves and skill through the actor. The movie is worth the money and the emotions the movie invokes, make the experience worth every minute.

TRENDS

Costumes get “super” treatment

By: Chelsea Ratterman Assistant Editor

As Halloween approaches, the biggest thing on the minds of kids, and some adults, is what costume to buy for Halloween. As promised, Halloween each year can be seen as a reflection of the trends of that year. What controversies are the biggest, what star the brightest, and what TV show or movie had the biggest impact on people. This year has seen Charlie Sheen winning, and this has inspired a rubber mask, as well as the infamous bowling shirts worn on his hit show “Two and a Half Men.” Michael Jackson remains popular, and this year will see the addition of Amy Winehouse to the star tribute costumes. With the tragic way they lost their lives, both stars are an influence on costumes for children and adults. The movie theater had a field day with the superhero theme this year, as Marvel continued its grand buildup to the superhero movie to end all

superhero movies, “The Avengers.” Among the popular costumes will be the members of this group, such as Thor, Captain America, The Hulk, and Spiderman along with their DC counterparts Green Lantern, Batman and Superman. You can count on the superhero trend to extend into women’s costume as well, with the Batgirl, Supergirl, Wonder Woman, and the Miss Green Lantern costumes. Popular artists who dress in costume are easy to find and imitate. Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj are among the most popular; all that’s needed is colored hair and a colorful outfit to finish the look. Prosthetics are a big Halloween market, since the introduction of cheap Hollywood imitations became available. A scar or a gash to finish off a particularly gory costume is always a fun way to go. You can count on costumes to follow trends in pop culture, as well as keep the timeless costumes such as vampires, Frankenstein and ghosts at the ready.

Costumes reflect trends in pop culture, with movie and game characters topping the list. Photo courtesy halloweencostumes.com
