City police are investigating a recent report of a sexual assault, according to a press release sent by the Bowling Green Police Division on Tuesday. A woman reported she was abducted and sexually assaulted while entering her apartment building, located in the 400 block of E. Court St., during the late evening hours of April 1, according to the press release. While she was attempting to enter her building, two men allegedly forced her into the back of a car and drove around while she was sexually assaulted, according to the press release. The suspects were described as white, one thin and taller than six feet and the other stocky and shorter than six feet, according to the press release. The car involved was described as a clean, four-door compact, dark in color with a tan interior. The victim reported the incident April 5. She was referred to Wood County Hospital, where she was treated and released, according to the press release. Dean of Students Jill Carr sent an email about the incident on behalf of the University on Tuesday evening. “As a community we are saddened and disturbed to hear of this situation,” the email stated. Police continue to investigate the incident.

The Counseling Center hosted a “Living with Grief and Loss” workshop Tuesday evening for students as a response to the recent car crash on Interstate 75. The event, hosted by doctoral student Jenny Lee and intern Claire Postl, focused on discussing and building an understanding of the grief process and how to cope with the loss of a loved one. This is the second workshop the Counseling Center has hosted after the crash. More than a dozen students attended the event and had the opportunity to share related experiences and feelings about tragedies. The discussions led to connections and reaching out to others who had similar stories. The workshop also offered resources to help with the grieving process and ways for students dealing with loss to start healing and be heard. It is estimated that 40 percent of students will face the loss of a loved one while attending college, according to the workshop speakers. Different ways to cope with the loss of a loved one include: turning to those close to the deceased person, finding solace in spirituality, faith or prayer, doing something to honor the deceased person, healthy self-care and seeking out resources and assistance. Further help for grief can be found at the Counseling Center, located at 104 College Park Office Building. Visit w w w.bgsu.edu/counseling or call 419-372-2081 for more information.
Anyone with information related to the incident is encouraged to contact city police at 419-352-2571 or Wood County CrimeStoppers at 419-352-0077. Those contacting Wood County CrimeStoppers have the opportunity to remain anonymous and are eligible for a reward of up to $1,000 if the information they provide proves to be pertinent to the case, according to the press release.
‘It Gets Better’ author to visit campus next week

He greeted them a ll persona lly, sha king their hands, making jokes and encouraging the excited jittering. Chef Patrick Hannan, the event host, called ever yone to gat her around him. He began the event by ta lk ing about the history of sushi and how it has evolved over time. Soon after, he introduced â€œChef Sam,â€? the resident sushi expert. All of the sushi consumed on campus is made by his crew.
Wearing an all black ensemble a nd w ielding his own knife, â€œChef Samâ€? quickly put together a sushi dish in about eight seconds. Donning gloves, everyone dove into their rice platter and began making California rolls. California rolls are prepared with cucumber, crab meat or imitation crab, and avocado, Hannan said. It is a messy affair, but it didnâ€™t appear anyone minded.

Do not be afraid to LGBT advocacy campaign raises invest faith in friends awareness, does not fully fix problem TARA KELLER COLUMNIST
For the last few weeks, there’s been a song I’m borderline obsessed with. It’s called “Have a Little Faith in Me.” Not a vastly popular song, nor one that was released anywhere close to recent, it’s stuck with me. Try as I might, I couldn’t get it out of my head. Eager to decipher this song and move onto the next, I listened hard to the lyrics. The song was about the singer loving this other person and needing that person to trust him. Trust. Maybe that’s the concept my mind kept telling me to examine further. Having been blessed with superb listening skills, I’d always been told I was trustworthy. Others could tell me their secrets and know I’d keep it safe for them. Fortunately, many people today consider themselves trustworthy and have others to eagerly vouch for that. Being trustworthy is the easy part. The hard part is trusting others and learning how to put your faith in them. Maybe it’s volunteering to do a group project alone because you suspect your other members will flake out at the last moment. It could be not warning your best friend about a surprise birthday party because you know he’d spill the proverbial beans to the birthday girl. Or, the most tragic of circumstances, it would be not telling your loved one about the heartache you’re going through. She might leave, you would muse, if she knew how tough life was for you sometimes. Don’t assume you can’t trust people if you’ve never given
them a chance. How else could they prove what a wonderful listener and faithful friend they could be? Today, we’re all about number one. Keep your nose to the grindstone, don’t ask for help and you will succeed. Your competition lies with your neighbors, friends and family. Don’t trust anyone. I can’t think of a sadder existence. We may not be physical hermits, but sometimes we are definitely emotional ones when it comes to trusting people. We fear all the possible retributions. They might tell. They might judge. They might revoke your friendship, like it’s actually a silly tangible thing that could be swiped away. Or you could trust them. Sit them down and tell them all about yourself — hopes, dreams, fears, wants and worries. Let them in and I’m sure they won’t walk out. Give them tasks. Ask them to pick up your little sister from daycare or print out your homework for you if you’re running late. Ask for help. Admit you need someone and revel in the chance to trust someone again, if not for the first time. If you don’t want to trust people for yourselves, do it for them. There is no greater feeling than realizing someone has the utmost faith and respect for you, the feeling that another would put their job, family or even their life into your capable hands. Next time you have an opportunity to trust someone, don’t hesitate with thoughts of everything that would go wrong. Think about everything that could go right and have some faith in that.
KYLE SHUPE GUEST COLUMNIST
Wednesday, the University Activities Organization is sponsoring a visit from noted columnist, LGBT activist and founder of the “It Gets Better” project Dan Savage. As a gay man and student activist I am very excited to attend this event and hear him speak, but I feel compelled to discuss some of my issues with the project. “It Gets Better” is an online series of videos created in September 2010 to combat
“While I find the message inspiring and an amazing undertaking to help ... ‘It Gets Better’ fails to address it’s main premise — does it?”
the string of LGBT youth suicides due to harassment and bullying. Savage and his partner, Terry Miller, were the first to upload their videos spreading a message of hope to LGBT youth, letting them know that ‘it gets better.’ Since the launch of the project, more than 40,000 videos have been uploaded to YouTube featuring celebrities, politicians and your everyday person telling LGBT youth that things will be OK. (ItGetsBetter.org) While I find the message inspiring and an amazing undertaking to help the average lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer youth feel a sense of belonging,
community and support, “It Gets Better” fails to address it’s main premise — does it? Conservative estimates show that LGBT youth are two-to-three times more likely to commit suicide than their heterosexual counterparts. Studies show the reason for this is the harassment they face in school, at home and by society in general. The institutionalization of homophobia, biphobia and
transphobia in American culture is astounding. Policies such as Defense of Marriage Act and Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell legally label LGBT persons as second class citizens. Politicians and religious leaders like Rick Santorum and Pope Benedict XVI liken same-sex intercourse to bestiality, stating “[gay marriage

Religious leaders shall not profit from the pulpit STEPHAN REED FORUM EDITOR
It’s no secret that religion is a method of commanding attention and persuading a large mass of people. There is nothing wrong with this. The problem comes when over zealous pastors look to make money or push their
political agendas on their congregation. While attending a church function recently, I ran into this troubling scenario. The pastor in the limelight was a “guest priest” from out of state. His charisma was overwhelming. The man could speak. The man could sing. He had a fire inside his heart that got everyone riled up. He sang louder than anyone else in the church and

with his operatic voice, he commanded the people and complimented them on their enthusiasm. This guy was good. After the first two readings in the Catholic Mass comes the “homily,” which I can summarize as being an interpretation of the readings and a way for the scripture to be remembered and applied to everyday life.

speech. By the end of his homily, the whole congregation was stoked. People were smiling at their neighbors, nodding their heads in agreement, and I’m pretty sure I even heard an “amen” come from the crowd. But when his interpretation was over, he didn’t sit down. Instead he took to the podium and gave a sales pitch to the people. This man of God turned into a businessman

His business wasn’t necessarily a bad cause, seeing as how it was an international charity, but the way he tricked the crowd psychologically is the problem.
We later found out that he was the leader of this organization and was trying to get a few dollars out of us.

Media fast suggests media is good in moderation ALICIA RIEDEL COLUMNIST
Silence. Do you remember what that sounds like? This past week, I was asked to do something unusual for an assignment: a media fast. The exercise is taken from “How to Tame a Wild Elephant,” by Jan Chozen Bays, which is made up of mindfulness exercises, including the following: “The Exercise: For one week, do not take in any media. This includes news media, social media and entertainment. Do not listen to the radio, iPod, or CDs; don’t watch TV, films or videos; don’t read newspapers, books or magazines (whether online or in print form); don’t surf the Internet; and don’t check on social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter. You don’t have to plug your ears if someone tells you about a news event, but do avoid being drawn into a conversation about the news. If people insist, tell them about your unusual fast. You may, of course, do reading that is necessary for work or school. What to do instead? Part of this mindfulness practice is discovering alternatives to consuming media. Hint: do something with your own hands and your own body.” Perhaps what surprised me most, though it should not have been such a surprise, was the difficulty to do this exercise while continuing regular activities as a col-
REED From Page 4 We were just a stop on his route. Again, I didn’t think his business was all that bad, but then came the guilt trips —tales of sorrowful homeless African children and people who donated all they had despite house foreclosures ensued. “If these people can give, I’m sure you can too,” he said. I was raging at this point. Maybe it’s just my skeptical college mind that caught on to this game, but I was offended. This man had a cap-
lege student. The experience would have been much easier to accomplish in a different environment, such as on a camping trip. Certainly I was permitted to use media for school and work and allowed the use of email. The difficulty that came as a somewhat surprising revelation was that media is present virtually everywhere and, to some extent, is inescapable in the college and city atmosphere. I was attacked by background music riding on a bus, while at work and at unexpected times during the day. Television screens and advertisements called for attention and people regularly referred to media in conversation and were eager to share what they had found with the click of a mouse. In addition to these challenges, I repeatedly found myself thinking through the day, “Oh wait! That’s media, too …” The recognition of the prevalence of media use leads to this question: Are we too “plugged-in” as a culture? Media keeps us informed, connected and entertained, which are all good things, but is there a point when we are too involved? Moving from a cultural scale to a personal one, I can offer my own reflection. Personally, my experience of this past week has suggested to me that I need to cut back on media consumption. There were a few clues that led me to this conclusion. First, I found myself somewhat lost and confused at times. I didn’t know what to do without looking some-

tive audience for his sales pitch. By captive, I mean we were held captive in our pews because it’s disrespectful to leave the room during the homily. I didn’t get the opportunity to talk to the priest after the mass because he was too busy accepting donations from parishioners. When the persuasive power of religion is in the hands of good people, it can be a great way of unifying a large group of people and fixing local issues. When the persuasive power of religion gets in the wrong hands, it can become a very dangerous thing. I have heard stories of pastors preaching homilies
about political values and boasting potential presidential candidate Rick Santorum as the “right” decision in the upcoming election. It’s experiences like these that make me empathetic to people who denounced their faith and turn people off, both during the ceremony and toward the religion itself. People want separation of church and state when it comes to government. Some people want this separation when it comes to church. We get enough political ads on YouTube and inbetween TV shows.
thing up online, checking Facebook or a reading the news, a book or magazine. Second, I found it much easier to complete my assignments for classes. Third, I enjoyed doing things I hadn’t done for a while, such as knitting. I had more time in silence for prayer, reflection and simply being in the present moment. I can think more clearly without the noise of media, regardless of how pleasant or informative that noise may be. Additionally, I had more time to spend with people in person as opposed to in virtual space. I am sharing this reflection with you to encourage further reflections on the pros and cons of media in our lives as well as awareness of its presence. Media can be very useful and beneficial but, even though I have regularly contributed to media as a columnist, I believe it is worth questioning how much is too much media consumption. With that said, I encourage you to intentionally take some moments away from media, remember silence and see what you discover.

GUEST From Page 4
undermines] the future of humanity itself.” Is telling the LGBT population that “things will get better for you” honest or fair in a culture that through means both de facto and de jure make you unequal due to your sexual orientation or gender identity? I admire the work Savage has done for the LGBT community and I have incredibly positive feelings toward the “It Gets Better” project. I think at one level LGBT youth need to know people exist who care about them, but I would also charge those people who care to do something about it. To ultimately make a world worth living in the message of “it gets better” needs to change to “make it better.” As long as LGBT persons are institutionally banned from receiving equal status and treatment, things will not be as good as they can be. The status quo thus far has been to treat the symptoms of a homophobic society
rather than alleviating the root causes. If a bully harasses a child because of their sexuality or gender identity, don’t just tell the child things will get better; address the issue with the child doing the bullying. If a political talking-head demonizes a minority because they aren’t “normal,” call them out. If a law exists that limits the rights of a minority, protest it until it is repealed. To quote Cherríe Moraga, “I can’t afford to be afraid of you, nor you of me. If it takes head-on collisions, let’s do it; this polite timidity is killing us.” Speaking out and acting against injustices is the only way to inspire real change. Finally, I would like to make a note that there is hope; on Sept. 10, 2010, DADT was repealed, ending the ban on gays and lesbians serving openly in the military. The Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act was signed into law Oct. 28, 2009, which extended hate crime laws to include gender, sexual orientation, gender identity and disability as
categories for protection. Even here in the city, issues 7905 and 7906 were passed in November 2010, which protect a myriad of minority status groups from being evicted at home and fired in the workplace. Similarly, Undergraduate Student Government voted for an amendment to the University’s non-discrimination policy to include gender identity and expression. While the LGBT community has come a long way in the fight for equal rights and representation, there is still a long way to go. But with things like the changes mentioned above and a dialogue which finally recognizes the humanity of all gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer persons, things will begin to change; and if things are great now, they will at least get better. More information regarding the “It Gets Better” project can be found here: www. itgetsbetter.org/pages/aboutit-gets-better-project/.

Tennis continues with confidence toward MAC Women’s team earns 7-0 nonconference win over Valparaiso, splits weekend series with loss to Miami, win against Ball State By Nate Doolin Reporter
The Falcons claimed a 7-0 win over nonconference opponent Valparaiso Tuesday afternoon at home after splitting the weekend series with a 2-5 loss to Miami and a 6-1 victory over Ball State. BG gave up a mere three games in the 75 total games played Tuesday on the singles side. The doubles portion also started the match on the right note, only surrendering four games in a total of 24 played.

are on a mission.” Dean mentioned the team is still focused on climbing up the conference ladder and taking pride in its work against the top two teams it has already faced in the Mid-American Conference: Akron and Miami. “We were only two points and two games away from beating the 6-0 conference leader, Miami Redhawks,” Dean said. “We are still right there and will fight hard the rest of the season.” Nikki Chiricosta, Emily Reuland,
Mary Hill and Jessica Easedale all shut out their opponents in two sets, 6-0, 6-0. Katie Grubb also performed well, giving up a lone game in her second set, and Maddy Eccleston only gave up two games in the second set. Chiricosta and Reuland led the way on the doubles side with a perfect 8-0. Teammates Hill and Johnson finished 8-1. Eccleston and Grubb were not far behind with an 8-3 doubles score on the day. BG completed all three dou-
bles matches in less than a half hour and all six singles f lights just inside the 90-minute mark. The match win Tuesday improved the Falcons’ record to 8-7 overall and 3-2 in the conference. It also pushes the team onto a two-game winning streak. The Falcons are now preparing for a MAC game against Central Michigan Friday at 1 p.m. Fans are encouraged to make their way to Keefe Courts since the match will be hosted on campus.
Falcons will host University of Detroit Mercy in two back-to-back nonconference games Wednesday By Ethan Easterwood Reporter

HANNAH FULK, BG shortstop, plants her left foot and pivots with her right to connect with the ball as it crosses the plate.
The BG softball team will take a break to host a doubleheader against the University of Detroit Mercy on Wednesday with a 6-2 record in conference play. The two teams have met before. Last season, the Falcons prevailed with scores of 14-0 and 8-3 — but that was last year, head coach Shannon Salsburg said. “We don’t think about last season at all,” Salsburg said. “Not one time this season have we looked back.” This game will be the first nonconference game for the Falcon’s in a week and will be the only for another week. “We approach every game the same way,” Salsburg said. “Our main goal isn’t focused on just MAC. It’s to get through the MAC tournament and get into the NCAA tournament.” Colder weather on Tuesday forced the team to practice inside and focus on hitting. The goal
“We don’t think about last season at all ... not one time this season have we looked back.” Shannon Salsburg | Head Coach was to get outside and work on defense and the team’s aggressiveness, but with sights of snow, the Falcons were caged. There is always something to improve on, and the Falcons wanted to work on their consistency, Salsburg said. The Falcons have scored the majority of their runs in the first inning and Salsburg wants to see that aggressiveness in all seven innings. Following the Detroit Mercy doubleheader, the Falcons will host Eastern Michigan and Central Michigan this weekend, giving the team a small home streak. “We always say ‘respect, but don’t fear,’” Salsburg said. “Our team has respect for every team.”
Baseball pulls 2-1 upset on road against Michigan Falcons use ‘small ball’ to defeat Wolverines after seven innings from starting pitcher Trevor Blaylock, end three-game losing streak By The BG News Sports Staff
Seven strong innings from Trevor Blaylock helped the Falcons upset Michigan, 2-1, Tuesday afternoon in Ann Arbor, Mich. Blaylock, usually used as a bullpen starter, tossed the best start of his young college career — seven innings, allowing one run on three hits and three walks, while posting three strikeouts — to help BG end a three-game losing streak. He was flanked by Jason Link, who pitched two perfect innings out of the bullpen to pick up his first career save. Blaylock had to get out of trouble early in the game, allowing his only run, and three of his six total baserunners in the first inning. After retiring the first two batters of the game on soft groundouts, he allowed a double to Michigan left fielder Will Drake. An RBI single by Coley Crank drove in the run. Blaylock then walked John Lorenz, before inducing a popout by John DiLaura to end the threat. Including the popout, Blaylock
retired the next nine batters he faced, before walking DiLaura in the fourth on a 3-1 pitch. Blaylock once again found a groove, retiring the next eight Wolverines in a row before running into trouble in the seventh. He walked DiLaura with one out and then allowed a slow-rolling single to Brett Winger to put runners on first and second with one out, but he was able to set down the final two hitters of the inning without incident. Despite his outing, Blaylock pitched from behind nearly the entire game. The Falcons were unable to put a run on the board until the sixth inning, when they used a bit of small ball to tie the game. Drew Kuns reached on an error to lead off the inning and advanced to second on a wild pitch. He then moved to third on a sacrifice bunt by Jeremy Shay before scoring on a single by Patrick Lancaster. The Falcons once again used small ball in the eighth to take

University of Pittsburgh receives 12 bomb threats
Expiration of bill may increase loan interest rates
Study shows texting in class hinders learning
Scientists identify genetic mutations linked to autism
‘Plugged in’ Americans suffer from sleep texting
U. of California skews education, according to report
With the 12 bomb threats received on the University Pittsburgh’s campus Monday, this semester’s total count increased to 57. Four dormitories — Amos Hall, Bruce Hall, Brackenridge Hall and Panther Hall — received the first set of bomb threats around 4 a.m. The buildings were evacuated and then reopened around 6:30 a.m. The next threat came at 11:11 a.m. Pitt sent out an Emergency Notification System alert notifying the campus of a bomb threat at the University Club. The threat also forced an evacuation at neighboring Thackeray Hall about a half hour later. “I wasn’t expecting it to happen here,” said Mallory Koch, a junior who works in the University Club. “And it wasn’t coupled with anything else. It’s such a random, small building.” Before that threat was cleared, four more buildings received threats. A little before 1 p.m., Frick Fine Arts, McCormick Hall, Posvar Hall and David Lawrence Hall were evacuated because of threats. At 2:20 p.m., three other campus buildings — Heinz Chapel, Panther Central and Victoria Hall — received threats. The buildings were evacuated, and by 3:25 p.m. all were cleared of threats. — By The Pitt News Staff The Pitt News, University of Pittsburgh
Major changes to the structure of subsidized student federal loans may make paying them off significantly more burdensome. On July 1, the 2007 College Cost Reduction and Access Act will expire. This act has kept interest rates down 3.4 percent on subsidized student federal loans, a type of Stafford loan offered through Free Application for Federal Student Aid. Once the act expires, all interest rates on loans taken out after July 1 will increase to 6.8 percent. According to records from the Office of Student Financial Services, 18,243 University of Texas students took out subsidized student federal loans in the 2010-2011 school year — a total that amounted to 31 percent of all the financial aid dispersed to students that year. The government has the right to maintain the loan, said Armando Salinas, the financial director of the Graduate Student Assembly. The GSA is currently lobbying Washington to ask for loan forgiveness, Salinas said, a system of cancellation programs that would alleviate students of the burden of some loans if students are able to qualify by providing a service that aids the public interest, such as medicine or law. — By Andrew Messamore Daily Texan, University of Texas
Boston University senior Sana Ali said she usually pays attention in class, but she will text when she has the opportunity. “I have a lot of three hour classes,” she said. “If I focus for the first two hours, I feel like it’s OK to send a text. It’s a reward system for paying attention and staying on task.” A recent study, which will appear in the July 2012 issue of the National Communication Association’s journal “Communication Education” found students who text more in class were less attentive and demonstrated lower grades. Boston University psychology professor David Somers said the results of the study were not surprising. “It seems pretty obvious to me that students who are distracted in class, by texting or anything else, will get less out of lectures,” Somers said in an email interview. “Multitasking typically leads to impairment of performance of both tasks, unless one of the tasks is very automated.” Students who text in class often perceived themselves as having learned less, according to the study, which surveyed 190 University of PittsburghBradford students. Those who reported higher levels of self-regulation graded themselves better and reported learning more. — By Allie DeAngelis The Daily Free Press, Boston University
Individuals with mutations in specific genes have a high risk of autism, according to scientists working independently at Harvard University, Yale University and the University of Washington in Seattle. The scientists said they have already identified several genes that lead to an increased likelihood of autism, but there is a possibility that several hundred genes are involved in autism, said Mark J. Daly, an associate professor of medicine and the senior writer of the Harvard paper. “We’re moving away from the single gene Mendelian idea of disorders or the idea that only a few genes cause the effect,” Daly said. “There are many genes in the biological pathways.” This discovery will allow a better treatment for autism to be developed that targets the mutated genes, Daly said. “It’s not good for a predictive model but can help us develop a hard biological model of autism and eventually develop a therapeutic treatment,” Daly said. —By Armaghan N. Behlum Harvard Crimson, Harvard University
People do odd things when they sleep. There’s the obvious sleep talking, sleepwalking, mumbling and snoring. However, one thing that doctors report as being on the rise is the phenomenon of sleep texting. Sleep texting is exactly what it sounds like, and those who do it do not remember doing so until they see sent messages in their outboxes the next morning. Doctors report the action is most likely caused by the fact that teenagers and college students are always interacting with technology. This interaction with technology is making it increasingly difficult for the human body to distinguish between waking and sleeping times, and according to The Melbourne Sleep Disorder Centre in Australia, sleep texting has been identified as a real medical occurrence. Indeed, Americans are so “plugged in” that occurrences of sending emails or pictures while asleep have also been reported. — By Lily O’Gara The New Hampshire, University of New Hampshire
Liberal faculty and politically correct thinking at University California has resulted in students receiving a decrepit and biased education, a report released this month by a conservative think tank claims. An April report released by the privately funded California Association of Scholars entitled “A Crisis of Competence: The Corrupting Influence of Political Activism in the University of California” states that a “leftist” education has resulted in a decrease in the quality of academic teaching, analysis and research at the university. The report — addressed to the UC Board of Regents — encourages them to impose “a rigorous marketplace of ideas” and establish a sanctuary for a broad political and social ideological spectrum at UC campuses. Presenting dissenting opinions is a quintessential characteristic of quality academics and must be reintroduced to the university, according to the report. “I think the report simply raises the undeniable reality that many of our UC campuses are failing to truly encourage a marketplace of ideas from all ideological backgrounds,” said Berkeley College Republicans President Shawn Lewis. — By Aliyah Mohammed Daily Californian, University of California-Berkeley

New technology to fill classrooms by fall semester Classroom Technology Services installs upgraded touch panels, projectors, removes VCRs, DVD players in nearly 100 classrooms on campus By Zach Gase Reporter

The new Extron equipment is a n i mprovement because t he touch screen panels are more user friendly for teachers t han t he old 12-button panel t hat Crestron E lect ron ics used, she sa id. T he new equ ipment a lso feat u res a more adva nced projector t hat f ilters itself, has a better lens shifter for
focus and zoom and has a longer lasting lamp — about 5,000 hours, compared to 1,200 hours for t he old projectors. “We didn’t have a ver y big problem getting [the new E x t ron s y stem] because ever yone was ver y gung-ho on getting it in there,” Barnes said. “But budget is always a big thing. Another reason we didn’t get new computers — we had to skip a year or two — is because we had to pull that money to put this stuff in.” The new equipment cost about $ 9,000 per room, which was about as much as CTS paid for the old system, she said. CTS also reused the same Dell computers from the old system, which saved on costs. Overa ll t he feedback has been ver y positive on the new technolog y, Ba rnes sa id. The only complaint she has heard addresses VCRs and DV D players not being available anymore.
“I’m a guy who is 75 years old, so I have not grown up with the fancy gadgets that [younger people] have grown up with. Trying to figure these new gadgets out, sometimes, is very, very trying ... What I like about it is that it’s so much simpler than the system we had before.” James Bachman | Assistant Professor “Now they just have to use the computer,” she said. “We can barely buy t hem a ny more ; t hey’re going out.

Some professors a nd instructors take advantage of the training CTS offers but would still like to see more, Barnes said. One instructor who has trained with the new system is James Bachman. Bach ma n, who ha s taught crimina l justice classes at the University for 16 years, describes himself as a “nov ice” with technolog y. “I’m a guy who is 75 years old, so I have not grown up with the fancy gadgets t hat [younger people] have grow n up w it h,” Bach ma n sa id. “Tr y ing to figure these new gadgets out, sometimes is ver y, ver y tr ying.

Everybody wants to be fancy and new. Nobody wants to be themselves. I mean, maybe people want to be themselves, but they want to be different, with different clothes or shorter hair or less fat. It’s a fact. If there was a guy who just liked being himself and didn’t want to be anybody else, that guy would be the most different guy in the world and everybody would want to be him.
