NEWS Texting bill dies in legislature • The Beacon

The proposed law would have carried fines, and even license suspensions in extreme cases. Saudia Ali Staff Writer Florida lawmakers attempted to ban texting while driving in the state through a proposal called Senate Bill 416. Introduced in January by Sen. Nancy Detert, the bill, if passed, would have fined those caught texting while driving. But as the legislative session drew to a close, its sponsors had not gathered the support they needed. The bill died, leaving supporters to look ahead until next year, when they’ll likely try to strengthen their case and bring the matter before the legislature once again. Under the proposal, a first offense would have resulted in a $30 fine and a second offense a $60 fine. Additional penalty would have been given to drivers who used cellular devices within school safety zones or involved in an auto accident. These offenders would receive six points on their license; 12 points in one year would result in a 30-day license suspension. In the United States, about 6,000 deaths and half a million injuries are caused by distracted drivers every year, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. In addition, the NHTSA reports that more than three quarters of drivers in Florida are likely to answer calls on all, most, or some trips while driving. These drivers also admit to rarely considering traffic situations when deciding to use cell phones. Over one-third of drivers have sent or

received text messages while driving. “I undoubtedly support this bill, said Palm Beach Atlantic University freshman Christopher Collier. “It would be very hard to enforce but it is something that is very dangerous,” he said. “Texting while driving has even killed people, so I think for the safety of the driver and of other drivers on the road it should be banned.” Many states have a ban on texting while driving. Over one half of United States drivers have admitted to using a

to do that on the road is a benefit.” Zielenieski continued by saying that texting and driving can be done “without any consequences.” “I actually do text while I drive, and I fully support this bill,” said Shaaray Miller, a student at PBA. “Texting is one of the many reasons as to why there are so many car accidents and deaths in Florida. People cannot concentrate with so much going on; they have to deal with traffic, other crazy drivers, and other various text messages. They need to set some limits.”

A connection between religion and health: Sophomore Alex Franks worships at the Epic Beauty event last year. Studies show that those who are “very religious” tend to be healthier.

eligion and well-being are rarely used in the same sentence. But a study taken by Gallup-Healthways in 2010-2011 indicates that the two are, in fact, deeply connected. Over 554, 000 people were polled. Those who were considered very religious by the study proved to show the highest levels of well-being. Moderately religious and nonreligious levels follow close behind but show significant difference.

In order to determine the participants’ stand on religion, a two-question survey was taken regarding the importance of religion and church attendance. The results produced three groups: very religious, moderately religious and nonreligious. The first group, very religious, described religion as a part of daily life and attendance of a church service as a weekly occurrence. This group represents 40 percent of the adult population. Next, moderately religious participants showed a more neutral response to the questions and did not feel strongly opinionated either way. They represent 28.3 percent of the adult population. Lastly, group three is defined as nonreligious due to the lack of value placed on church involvement and religious activity. Accordingly, 30.7 percent of the adult population is comprised of nonreligious people. The term religiosity is defined as “a personal importance placed on religion and frequent religious service attendance.” The very things that define religiosity are proven to be beneficial to a person socially. Regular church attendance promotes positive social skills and friendships while also reinforcing the meditative effects and faith in a higher power that come with spiritually. “Religion provides mechanisms for coping with setbacks and life’s problems, which in turn may reduce stress, worry and anger,” stated the study. This belief in a higher power relieves people from huge amounts of stress, decreases depression and supports a more positive and hopeful lifestyle. The group defined as very religious scored highest in overall well-being. This group received the highest scores involving emotional health, life evaluation, and healthy behaviors. “As for health and religion, there definitely seems to be a connection,” said Palm Beach Atlantic University senior Corey Walker. “Christianity views the body as a temple of God and therefore we must take care of our bodies,” he said. “Taking time out of your day to pray and be alone and quiet will definitely reduce stress levels in your body.” Walker, a biology pre-health major, also explained the effects of stress, and how stress is linked to many diseases and sickness and can deplete energy levels. “Essentially, the quiet time that religion calls for reduces the level of stress and therefore increases your overall health,” said Walker. Though the Gallup-Healthways study does provide compelling evidence of a connection between these two topics, the study does not claim to know why the two may be intertwined. “It is possible that Americans who have higher well-being are more likely to choose to be religious than those with lower well-being, or that some third variable could be driving certain segments of the U.S. population to be more religious and to have higher well-being,” stated the study. Previous research has shown that religiosity is related to age, gender, race, ethnicity, region and state of the country, social-economical status, martial status and childbearing status.

Studying abroad: Palm Beach Atlantic University students are seeing historic churches in England, such as Westminster Abbey, but with nearly empty sanctuaries. A poll shows Britain is becoming a secular nation.

One in five British do not believe in resurrection Students studying abroad in England this semester have encountered a completely different culture from the Christian bubble at PBA. By Kayla Viaud Features Editor England may be known for its elaborate churches, but they seem to be just for show. According to a study by the atheistic Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science, religion is irrelevant in Britain. According to the Dawkins poll, 54 percent of people identified themselves as Christians, compared to 72 percent in 2001, an 18 percent drop. Thirty-two percent of the 2,000 people polled during census week in April 2011 believe Jesus was physically resurrected. One in five do not believe in the resurrection, even in a spiritual sense. Sabrina Orr, a Palm Beach Atlantic student studying abroad at Roehampton University in London, said that there is no Christian

bubble at Roehampton like there is at Palm Beach Atlantic University. “It has been quite challenging to adjust to the lifestyles that students choose to live while being here, but it’s only preparing me for the real world,” Orr said. Dr. Kathy Maxell is accompanying the students while they study abroad. “In wider London, aside from the churches, I haven’t seen much evidence of Christianity,” Maxwell said. “While I don’t think the Dawkins Foundation intended the study to be a call to action for Christians, I do think the results of the study should be a challenge to Christians,” Maxwell said. Forty-nine percent of those surveyed in the study do not think of Jesus as the son of God, while one in 25 of those who declare themselves Christian do not believe he existed at all. “It’s my understanding that the U.K. doesn’t have Christian universities in the same way that PBA is a Christian university,” Maxwell said. “Many universities have some sort of Christian background, but that identification is definitely in the past.” Maxwell said that being a Christian in college gives students an opportunity to “consider their faith, dig deep into the reasons for their belief, and wrestle with what this means for how they live their lives.”

“When people find out that I am a Christian, they are usually surprised and are curious and often interested,” said Orr. “I would say that Christianity on this campus is more so on the lower level.” Orr and other students studying abroad meet once a week for a time of fellowship, worship, and a message usually given by a local pastor. The group is called the Christian Union. “Some of the churches don’t seem to be doing much; they have service information outside, but when I’ve attended a couple services, there are only a handful of people inside a big, beautiful sanctuary,” said Maxwell. The poll shows Britain is becoming a secular nation. “In our experience, Christians here have to answer hard questions, like ‘how can you believe that you have a relationship with a God that you can’t even have a proper conversation with?’ and ‘how can you follow a God who allows such pain and suffering in the world?,’” said Maxwell. “It’s hard for me at times, because I know that I am not here to convert or change anyone; it is not up to me,” Orr said. “It is amazing that I have the honor and privilege to be on God’s side, proclaiming His Name and His love to whoever He puts in my path.”

Summer is a time for camp: As part of Science Days, each day will have a different focus, from chemistry to marine biology.

Palm Beach Atlantic University will present “Science Days at PBA,” a science summer camp for children in kindergarten through six grades, at the university’s main campus from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. the week of June 11-15 with extended care available until 5:30 p.m. The cost per child is $225, which will include lunch, snacks and T-shirt. Dr. Keysha Bryant, assistant professor of pharmacy practice, is director of Science Days at PBA, working with PBA science and pharmacy faculty from various disciplines. Each day will have a different scientific focus such as: chemistry, geology, ecology/ environmental science, paleontology and marine biology. This year’s camp is partnering

with Jurassic Parts, which will provide very interactive science programs, said Bryant. The camp will focus on digging for genuine fossils, mining and identifying gems and minerals, making chemical concoctions as well as performing chemical experiments, learning about sharks and rays, and studying the internal and external anatomy of a squid, Bryant said. Recreation time in PBA’s Greene Complex for Sports and Recreation will be part of the daily activities. For camp registration, call TicketCentral at (561) 803-2970 or register online at http://www.

‘Jazz’ explores human condition By Chris Hernandez Managing Editor “Blue Like Jazz” is adapted from Donald Miller’s New York Times best seller of the same name. The film fictionalizes Miller as a college-aged Southern Baptist who has a change of heart regarding his faith when he begins to see the cracks of hypocrisy within his small town church. Looking to escape and led by the mantra that his belief is based on the fear of hanging out with non-Christians, Miller enrolls in Reed College, where Christians are kept in the closet and the students live without boundaries. While at Reed, Miller battles with his faith in Christ, acceptance and how to deal with the trials life throws his way. “I’m surprised the story hasn’t been told before,” says Steve Taylor, the director and co-writer of the film. “It’s a very American story. It speaks to the incredible loneliness we encounter. We don’t have the same ways to handle. For Don, he struggles with is God there. It

made for a compelling narrative.” Marshall Allman, who plays Miller in the film, agrees with Taylor. For Allman, the journey of meaning and purpose speaks to an inner tension between all humans. “Human beings all want to be known,” Allman says. “There is that feeling that there is something better that knows us better than we know ourselves. Inherently we understand a concept of infinity, yet we are finite beings. That is where the conflict lies.” Besides the search for God, another over arching theme of the film is the conflict between individuality and acceptance. This conflict is played out at Reed College, which is a real college in Portland. “Reed College is very counter culture,” says Taylor. “It feels like a place full of those high school kids that didn’t fit in. In the film, you see Don trying to find his niche, his tribe, where he belongs.” Allman got to visit Reed during the shooting of the film and sat in on a Nerf War 101 class after watching a women’s rugby practice. Though he feels the film did a great job in attempting to recreate the

spirit of Reed, for Allman, truth is hard to show in a movie. “It was like one of those situations you say you only see in movies, “he says. In creating the film, Taylor wanted to keep to the spirit of the Miller’s book, which has the subhead “Nonreligious thoughts on Christian Spirituality.” On tour to promote the movie, which has a PG-13 rating due to language and sexual content, Taylor and Miller have been gone on record to say that the film is not meant to be a Christian film, but, rather, a film about a character who happens to be Christian. “I wanted to make a movie for people who go to the movies,” Taylor says, adding that he deliberately went into the project avoiding the Christian movie genre established by such movies as “Courageous” and “Fireproof.” Though the movie distances itself from the genre, Taylor believes the film will speak to Christian fans of Miller’s book. “I feel like it’s a very familiar place,” says Taylor. “Many Christians have lived out the tensions Don goes through in the movie.” “Blue Like Jazz” is set to be released April 13.

Exposure to other faiths: ‘eye opening’ By Becca Stripe Staff Writer It is a huge step out their comfort zone, when Palm Beach Atlantic University students partake in interfaith experiences. The students from the World Religions course say it is difficult to go to these religious places, but it has strengthened their walk with the Lord. “It was very hard, but there was a lot of beauty to be found in those religions,” said Kara Bonn. “My faith was strengthened by imagining God’s redemptive purposes to change those temples into places of worship to worship the one true God, and to just come to know Jesus.” “It definitely allowed me to understand them better and even allowed me to love better through understanding,” biblical & theological studies major Jedidiah Montalvo added. “It was really just awesome to see it in front of you rather than to just talk about it.” Dr. Gerald Wright is the professor of the class and has students go to at least three different places of worship outside of any Christianity. “Our assignment is just to observe and learn,” Montalvo said. “We are free to ask questions that will better help us understand their world view, but we are there simply to observe and take in information.” Students may choose the places they’d like to go to, but many have taken up on Wright’s offer to go as a class to a Hindu temple, a mosque, and a gurdwara, a place of worship for Sikhs. “I loved the opportunity to go to the options Dr. Wright gave us,” Montalvo said. After the students attend the places of worship they must write a one-page paper about their experience: half of it on what they observed and the other half on their personal reaction. “Knowing the sorrow that I feel when I see these people is not even a fraction of how God feels when He sees these people worshipping these

idols,” said political science major Shelby Baker. Montalvo said the Hindu temple doesn’t conduct services like a typical Christian service. Instead, the people “come in as they please and worship their idols as they please.” Today, the polytheistic religion Hinduism is the third-largest organized religion in the world with nearly one billion members. Unlike the Hindu temple, the Sikh gurdwara, the second worship place that Wright recommended to his class, is more similar to a Christian service, however it was in a different language. Sikhism, the fifth-largest organized religion in the world with over 25 million members, is a monotheistic religion that was founded in the 15th

century in the region between Pakistan and China. “It was an amazing experience,” Montalvo said. It truly widens your scope of the world and it also allowed me to see the Word of God in an entirely new way,” “It also helps you appreciate people more and definitely allows you to understand them and their world view.” Bonn also attended both the Hindu temple and the Sikh Gurdwara and enjoyed her time there. “It was all kind of a shock because I had never been exposed to these religious practices,” the psychology major said. “I was really amazed. I was in such great awe.” Montalvo and Bonn left the places with new information and feelings.

Exploring Other Religions: “You need to challenge your faith. It’s just something people need to be wise about,” said student Jedidiah Montalvo.

“I learned a ton,” Bonn said. “I learned that there are a lot of praise worthy things in these two religions. It was hard to see the good aspects like love, music, worship, beauty, reverence, trust, and humility. I was sad for quite a few days after I got back. There were just so many beautiful things about those two faiths.” Wright warned his class that it would be a new experience for them all and that it might make them feel uncomfortable. He allowed his students to not attend if they did not want to, but encouraged them to step outside of their comfort zones. “A lot of people would feel that it’s so dark there in the Hindu temple because there are so many idols these people are worshiping,” Bonn said. “People will walk away from that and say that it’s so dark there because of all of the idolatry.” Montalvo said it is important for people to challenge what they believe because it grows their faith. “You need to challenge your faith. It’s just something people need to be wise about,” Montalvo said. “Because you can end up further away from God on the wrong path if we are not careful.” For their third trip both Montalvo and Bonn plan to individually go to a Muslim mosque. Bonn believes it is important that people educate themselves on Islam because it is prevalent in the United States today. “There are so many misconceptions and miscommunications and abstractions of what Islam really teaches,” Bonn said. “ I would love to know the truth and seek out the beautiful things in the faith because the world concentrates on the evil that may or may not be accurate. I feel that our society is skewing the information about the faith and I don’t want to buy into a lie and be ignorant.” “I thank God for that opportunity to be filled and loved by Christ and to feel that so strongly,” Baker said. “It’s really strengthened my faith and gratitude towards God.” “It’s grown me closer to the Lord in the sense that I see what I’m saved from. It’s really eye-opening,” Baker said. • The Beacon

a popular book series and a Celtic band. They would settle on “Lastwatch” because, in the same sense, they are waiting to be the last generation on watch for Christ. With a name in place and a few practices under their belt, the band was ready to share their music with the world. Their first stop would be Halloween Fright Nights. Though not a typical venue for a Christian rock band, it fell into what the band ultimate feels like is its mission. “It’s important for us not to just play Christian venues but to go out there and win souls for God.

Zach was grateful for the special area the bands were able to stay in. It kept him far away from the people dressed up like murderers. He remembered that the Sunday before, his dad, who is a pastor, talked about how the band was trying to shine a light into the dark-

ness. The moment Lastwatch played at Fright Nights reminded Zach of something a friend told him, “We are going into hell to pull souls out.” Lastwatch was the last band up and the fan response started out strong but began to wane since the night was coming to a close. The band, however, saw it as a success, a means to spread their positive message to the Christian and non-Christian worlds. “I’m focused on the Great Commission and bringing people to Christ. If you listen to our songs, they have similar meanings—to draw closer to God,” says Ashley. This message, Jon hopes, will transcend genre and speak to people because, in the end of the day, he feels that Lastwatch is a breath of positivity compared to a lot of what is heard on the radio today. “It’s not positivity in a cheeky way but in an energetic way,” he says.

Battle of the Bands

The idea to audition for Battle of the Bands first popped into Andrea’s head. She knew Ashley had ties to PBA and thought playing at BOTB would be a great time. For the band, if there is a stage and some people, it is down to play whenever. But a technicality almost kept the band from playing. According to BOTB rules, at least half of the band had to be students from PBA. The band had Ashley, but needed one and a half more people. After asking, the band was able to find their way onto

the BOTB stage. The band looks back on that night as a fun experience. For Ashley, though there was a sense of competition in the air, there was also a sense of camaraderie between the bands. They thought all the bands were great, hung out with Safe Word Whisky in the back and fist pumped to all the sets with the crowd.

Directed Footsteps

All the band members feel that God has called them to play and follow him in obedience with their work with Lastwatch. Recently, besides coming in first at Battle of the Bands, Lastwatch got a trailer and are preparing a van for possible tour dates. They are currently in the studio working on demos. They hope that one day they can reach the level of Skillet and Red. But, for now, they hold tight to their calling, prayerfully taking each day at a time. “A man’s heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his footsteps,” Matt says quoting Proverbs 16:9. “What we want to experience as our heart desire, may not be what God plans. We have to step into prayer. God will push open the right doors and close the wrong ones.” One of the doors Matt feels was ordained by God was the formation of the group. “The moment I met each individual person, it felt like I had already known them. They were my brothers and sisters. They are my best friends,” says Matt.

Kony2012: Sharing is caring?

Viral activism: Invisible Children has launched a campaign to stop Joseph Kony, the man in charge of the Lord’s Resistance Army. The video on Youtube has received over 79 million views, with one million likes and over 100,000 dislikes. For more information, visit

Kony 2012 came out of nowhere during Spring Break, inspiring many young adults to share the video and get Joseph Kony’s name known. But, is that where it ends? Cash W. Lambert News Editor Not only is it a testament to the power of social media, but it’s a testament to humankind’s desire to help those in need. Whether you agree with Invisible Children’s Stop Kony 2012 campaign or not, you must admit that it is an unprecedented and incredible movement sweeping the hearts of those across the globe. For those of you who haven’t seen its brilliant cinematography, the Stop Kony video explains that Joseph Kony, the man in charge of the Lord’s Resistance Army, has abducted over 30,000 children from their families in

Uganda and has sold the girls into sex slavery and forced the boys into his army. The video’s creator, Jason Russell, meets a young boy named Jacob whose brother was killed by the LRA, and after seeing the Ugandan people suffer from the atrocity firsthand, seeks to end the inhumane acts. The video says that in order to stop Kony, the Ugandan army needs to find where he is. In order for that to happen, the army needs training from American advisors. And for the American advisors to be there, America has to make a loud voice for congress to send them. The video on Youtube has received over 79 million views, with one million likes and over

100,000 dislikes. The Internet displays an incredible amount of negative reaction to Russell’s video. Some have argued that since Kony isn’t in Uganda, there’s no reason to keep looking for him. Those opponents are correct about his leaving Uganda; he has infiltrated its neighboring countries, such as the Congo. Uganda is currently in a rebuilding phase, fixing old buildings and creating new schools that he destroyed. Just because he isn’t in Uganda shouldn’t stop those trying to capture him. Kony has abducted thousands of children, and it’s said that some children were forced to kill their own parents in order to live. It is irrational for those who know of these actions to simply say that if Kony is out of sight, then he is out of mind. And just because time has passed doesn’t mean we should forget his actions. Saddam Hussein used chemical weapons on

the Kurdish people during the Iran-Iraq War in 1988 and killed over 5,000 civilians. He was finally captured in 2003, 15 years after he committed the acts. Some say that Invisible Children spends too much money on the film department and should be giving that money to help relief efforts. However, Invisible Children, according to its annual report, pays 37 percent of the money towards relief to different Central African programs. Nine percent of the funds are spent on clothes and wristbands, and only 7 percent is spent on the media and film projects. When you give money to an organization, it’s true that you don’t see where each penny goes. But Invisible Children isn’t pocketing your money instead of giving it to the relief efforts, as some believe. At the very root of the Kony movement is a simple idea to help those in need. If it were not for social networking, we wouldn’t have known these atrocities were occurring. But because of technology, we are aware of the inhumane acts, so shouldn’t we be responsible? For Palm Beach Atlantic University students, the act of flying to Uganda and making a personal impact is very unrealistic. But we do have the financial means to help the cause. Invisible Children has been very transparent about its finances; see the details online. That makes the organization, for now, trustworthy. I have seen many organizations, fads, and movements come and go. Whether or not a movement fulfills its purpose is based solely upon its activists. When a movement is relatively new, there is much emotion attached to it. This emotion, however, must be supplemented by action. This is where so many organizations and ideas fail. If much is talked about but little is acted upon, there cannot be success. Here’s a math lesson: emotion plus action equals results. On April 20, Invisible Children supporters from cities across the globe will meet at night to put up posters all over the city streets to educate those still in the dark. Most of the event planning will take place on Facebook.
