A daily independent student press serving the campus and surrounding community
Undergraduate Student Government had their first summer general assembly meeting yesterday to discuss their agenda for the fall and spring semesters. Alex Solis, USG president, said the top two priorities for the group is the renovation of the student Rec center, and further working on the construction of the new interactive learning classroom in Olscamp Hall in order to increase student retention rates. The classroom will be equipped with new furniture, learning areas and laptop charging stations. “It is a University initiative, we’re at 69.5% retention and we want to get that up to about 85%,” Solis said. With the University’s plan to have
President of Undergraduate Student Government 25,000 students enrolled by 2020, retention is USG’s main priority. Solis said he went through a prototype of the classroom in January. “This will be interactive, high-tech learning space,” Solis said. Classes are going to be taught in the room as well, Solis said. The construction of the classroom started a week after finals at the beginning of May and will be done by the start of the fall semester. Two new officers were also sworn in during the meeting. Evan Colyer is the new Chief Administrator and Seth Ungenach is the new Legislative Secretary.

On campus building hours set to change for summer
When Cedar Point decided to add a new roller coaster this summer, they wanted to build something recordbreaking. “We didn’t ask for just something,” said CEO of Cedar Fair Entertainment Company Matt Ouimet. “We asked for something special.” Cedar Point unveiled its new wing coaster called Gatekeeper this summer during the media day on May 9—completely revitalizing the entrance of the park. “Coasters are what we are all about here at Cedar Point, and we are very proud of our lineup,” John Hildebrandt, vice president and general manager of Cedar Point, said. “We were the first park to build coasters to exceed the 200, 300 and 400 foot limit. Coasters are in our DNA, they are our passion and they are what we do here. I also think we are pretty good at redoing entrance gates.” The location of the ride portrays the name of the coaster in Gatekeeper.
“At one point I just had to stop, because everyone was just going a zillion miles an hour, and I just looked around and everyone within earshot of me I said, ‘think about what you’re doing,’” Ouimet said. “’Then think about the role you are playing. We are the team that will forever change the front of the park.’” The changed entrance was designed for incoming guests to hear the riders scream over top of them, Ouimet said. Gatekeeper is only the fifth wing coaster built in the world. The design of the coaster sits the riders on either side of the track with nothing above or below the riders. The design is only manufactured by Bolliger & Mabillard, a Swiss roller coaster design consultancy. This is the third coaster the Swiss firm has produced for Cedar Point, including Raptor and Mantis. “This is unique, it’s fantastic,” a representative from B & M said. “It’s like flying like a bird.”

Hours for University buildings and dining halls are set to change during the summer session due to the small amount of students living on campus. The limited amount of students on campus cause buildings and dining halls to reduce their hours of operation or close entirely for the duration of summer break, said Sarah Waters, the director of Residence Life. “Approximately 30 students
are currently housed on campus,” said Waters. “They are housed in Centennial for the summer session.” Since Centennial is the only residence hall housing students enrolled in summer classes, the other residence halls on campus are closed until the fall semester. Summer staff, as well as members of SOAR; Student Orientation, Advising & Registration are also housed in Centennial, Waters said. Centennial also offers guest housing for potential students visiting the

HOURS From Page 1 in effect until August 26, when the fall semester begins, said Paulus. Nancy Joseph, the associate director of Dining Services said, “There will be weeks [Carillon] will open the Carillon daily, and some weeks Carillon will be open sporadically.” Since there aren’t a lot of students on campus for the summer, they will not be offering a meal plan option, Joseph said. Some students said they will be affected by the summer hours of the buildings and dining halls on campus. “The summer hours for some of the studios in the art building are inconvenient to complete art assignments outside of class,” senior Patricia Hoffman said. The limited hours of buildings on campus during the summer session will be a difficult barrier for students who require access to those buildings. “I understand why the hours are changed, but I think it would be beneficial to students to have access to those buildings during the summer session,” Hoffman said. The change in building hours during the summer break might prevent students from using the same facilities open during the fall and spring semesters. While some students may find these hours to be inconvenient, in order to accommodate the needs of the students and the University, the changes during summer session are required. “It will be hard to transition from having 24-hour access to buildings to only a few hours a day, but I’ll make do.” Hoffman said. Dunkin Donuts will be open Sunday through Saturday from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m., Starbucks from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., and the Falcon’s Nest, which includes Mondo Subs, Wild Greens and Panda Express, Monday through Friday 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. These locations will be open and available to students for limited hours during the summer session.
Businesses get creative to attract summer crowds By Brian Klueter Reporter
When students leave Bowling Green for the summer, businesses downtown are affected by their absence. With less students attending the University in the summer, many businesses find themselves with less shoppers. The summer session lacks in comparison to the fall and spring for many businesses. It can be hard for a business during the summer when most of their customers are here during the fall and spring, said senior Christopher Miller. “They are affected because students are their main customers,” Miller said. “I believe businesses try to attract customers with flyers and sales.” Some businesses try to use more advertising, deals and promotions as incentives to attract new customers. The owner of the Cla-Zel, Ammar Mufleh, said he uses many methods of advertising and promotion to reach out to a broader audience in the community, which includes students staying in town for the summer. Using various types of social media, such as Facebook and Twitter, the ClaZel is able to advertise upcoming events. “We give away free tickets to regional concerts in Detroit and Cleveland, and bring in special guest DJs from New York and Los Angeles, which brings in more regional people,” Mufleh said. The Cla-Zel also does many promotions with KISS FM 92.5, widening the range of advertising and reaching an even larger audience. As a multi-entertainment facility, the Cla-Zel offers a variety of other possibilities, which operate outside student involvement, such as wedding receptions and corporate events. The promotions along with social media advertising help the Cla-Zel make up for the decrease in customers over the summer.
Downtown Bowling Green is an organization that promotes the downtown business district. Barbara Ruland, the director of Downtown Bowling Green, offers promotions to help counteract the loss of student customers. Some of the promotions include the Classics on Main Car Show, Summer Sidewalk Sales and the Downtown Farmers’ Market. These promotions are available to the community and cater to businesses that have to work harder to promote themselves during the summer. “We started the Downtown Farmers’ Market in 2010 to bring a little more interest to downtown during the Summer months, among other reasons,” Ruland said. “Going into our fourth year, the Market is really becoming a vital part of the community. It works as both a gathering place and a market place and we’re very pleased to have BGSU’s support of it.” The Market starts next Wednesday and runs every Wednesday from four to eight P.M. until October 16. It’s in the Huntington lot at Clough and Court, right across the street from Lola’s Yogurt, said Ruland.

with more opportunity. As individuals who represent opportunity, should we Americans push for government reform in foreign countries when they inhibit opportunity and freedoms? Where does America’s greatness lie? It’s not in putting a man on the moon or being creators of the fattest nation on the planet. Our greatness lies in creating opportunity, and creating the American dream. Now, I realize that not all countries were designed for capitalism or democracy. But that doesn’t mean that in today’s age, we should still face the challenge of making different forms of government work together on an international scale. In order to create prosperity worldwide, we need to compromise. Simply hearing world leaders claim that they aren’t open to compromising doesn’t show strength, it shows stubbornness, which can be interpreted as weakness. Just like character flaws we witness within the people we interact with, stubbornness can be among the most unappealing traits. Meanwhile, while countries like North Korea dig their people into further poverty, people throughout the United States continue to complain about their way of life. It almost
with breathing problems and other complications that can be linked back to the use of chemical weapons. One person is dead, while others suffered from complications. With the possibility of the use of chemical weapons in Syria, countries involved in the civil war have pushed for Syria’s closest ally, Russia, to intervene. If Russia were to become involved and intervene in Syria, the civil war will surely come to an end. A transition government would be put in place and the country will slowly start rebuilding. But Russia does not see a need for intervening in the Syrian civil war. A war caused by regime change does not interference by other countries, but thousands have died and millions have been misplaced due to the fighting. The countries surrounding Syria are now housing and taking care of the people who have been chased out of their homelands due to the civil war. Russia is seeing a change of heart though, since the potential use of chemical weaponry might have occurred. An end will become inevitable if Russia was to decide to intervene and end the war. But for now, the United Nations fears new mass killings as the regime moves closer to sieging the rebels’ stronghold in
DAVOOD DADFAR COLUMNIST
“Whenever you feel like criticizing anyone, just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had.” That’s one of my favorite quotes from “The Great Gatsby” and I use it with purpose. A few days ago my iPhone interrupted my early morning dreaming to give me a news notice that North Korea had just tested four more missiles. The whole time I was in limbo processing the news. I questioned why would a country so isolated from the rest of the world care to take more action in further separating itself. After all, let’s face it. North Korea isn’t known for its human rights or diplomacy, and unlike Iran, economic sanctions have failed to bring the country’s nuclear program to a halt. But that doesn’t mean North Korea is without potential. The country hosts some of the smartest and most driven individuals of today. Unfortunately, its government suffers from brain drain which depletes the nation of its inner talent as they leave to countries
seems like a daily ritual to bash the government, or complain about how they’re disadvantaged. At the end of the day, the reality is that many American college students are just lazy. If we didn’t live in a country that was fueled by capitalism, we wouldn’t have as many opportunities as we see today. International students throughout the world are competing on a global scale and are motivated by political factors to gain admission into American schools to get a taste of that American greatness which is known as opportunity. So, the next time you consider blaming a professor for your poor performance, think about the idea that almost any North Korean student would kill to be in your position sitting where the American dream lives, and where your opportunities and potentials are only limited to yourself.

CASSIE SULIVAN COLUMNIST
Well into two years of fighting and nearing 80,000 civilians dead, the Syrian civil war has passed the red line the United States put into place concerning the possible use of chemical weapons. Turkey, a country bordering Syria to the south, has evidence of remains from deployed missiles, along with wounds from possible chemical weapons. Intelligence coming from Turkey also believes the Syrian government has used at least 100 chemical missiles on civilians and the rebel forces, along with cases of people suffering from various injuries from exposure to chemical weapons. But the most questionable information comes from which side has used the chemical weapons— the government powered regime, looking to keep Syria under their control, or the opposition, who is looking to put an end to the Syrian regime. One speculation is the opposition has used the deadly sarin gas, but no proof exists. But proof exists in a small town outside of Aleppo, Syria. Civilians have been admitted into the hospital
al-Qusair while the US and Turkey are discussing ways of ending the civil war in Syria. Their talking points include the transfer of power from the Assad regime to the rebels, which would surely include support from stronger countries, such as Turkey and the US. Before, Turkey and Syria used to be close. But the ongoing civil war has turned Turkey against the Syrian government. Now, Turkey hosts refugees from Syria, along with searching for ways to end the fight by working with countries like the US and Britain to do so. Will intervention happen now that the red line Obama has discussed has been crossed? While any definitive proof of such actions happening, the US isn’t chagrining right into the conflict. Instead, the US and other countries looking to do something about the civil war are meeting and discussing the different ways of intervening. The US isn’t looking to go into the conflict without anyone else, like in previous interventions. Rather, intervening is a group effort of countries directly affected by the civil war and by countries who have different interests in Syria. Respond to Cassie at email@example.com
Abercombie’s CEO statements shouldn’t be taken personally R e c e n t l y, the CEO of the popuOLIVIA SMITH FORUM COLUMNIST lar clothing brand Abercrombie & Fitch, Mike Jeffries, has been under fire for his 2006 remark concerning his company’s marketing strategy. He claimed their goal is to only attract the “cool kids” and “good-looking people” to buy their clothing items. Controversy has also arisen over the retailer’s choice to not offer sizes in women’s clothing above XL and to not carry any pant sizes above size 10. People argue that this displays a bias towards selling only to what the industry defines as ‘skinny customers.’ This suggests that only skinny people are the “cool kids” and that overweight individuals cannot wear the brand and be considered “good-looking.” Abercrombie is defining their own standard of beauty and being exclusive to a specific market they wish to target. They are trying to be an individual rather than be like other stores that are expanding their size ranges to encompass people of all body weights and shapes. Companies are becoming all alike as they try to target every consumer, and Abercrombie is trying to avoid this. By being ex-
clusive, they are maintaining their uniqueness and continuing to excite people. Some say Abercrombie is sticking to the idea of a conventional all American beauty standards, which to some, is considered outdated in this current day and age. Across the nation, the beauty standard is changing to be more inclusive of all individuals in the market. Fat, old, skinny, young, ugly, and beautiful are all being defined differently. This is a good thing since the definition of beautiful has been making young people try so desperately to fit into an often unrealistic image. There is often an emphasis on uniqueness and confidence when considering beauty. In order for the beauty standard to change, the overall opinions and mindsets of the population need to change. People need to realize that all people are beautiful, no matter what. People need to base their thoughts off the individual rather than comparing them to what they see in a magazine. Not everyone is going to be model skinny and have perfect features. This is simply unrealistic, especially since the definition of perfect varies from person to person as well. When it comes to Abercrombie, people are outraged by their lack of empathy and inclusion towards all people. It is not fair to make kids feel ostracized and not cool because they cannot fit into the

READY,SET, EAT. Professional eater visited Bowling Green to complete food challenge at South Side 6 By Geoff Burns Pulse Editor

challenge and stands as the only male to have defeated the contest earlier this year. There have been 85 people who have tried the contest. It’s one of the only challenges I failed so I made it a point to come back,” McDonald said. “It’s probably one of the hardest challenges out there.” The challenge consists of contestants eating 12 pounds of
food in an hour or less. The food consists of six gyros, which contain one pound of meat each along with bread. People who participate in the challenge will pay $66 to enter and if they conquer it, the reward is $666. Owner of South Side 6 So Shaheen said the business

Random Access Memories Grade | A By Jonathan Keilholz Pulse Critic
Daft Punk’s fourth studio album is more than music. It’s an experiment in sound that captures human and digital experiences as both opposing and complementary forces. “Random Access Memories” is sophisticated, self-aware and smart. Daft Punk basks its music in 1980s “synth-pop”, meaning the synthesizer is the main instrument. Mixing the synthesizer with emotional voices of performers such as Paul Williams, Panda Bear and Pharrell Williams, Daft Punk’s album expertly compounds digitalization and humanity to create something rarely done before. Worldwide music sensation and Italian record producer Giorgio Moroder tells his discovery of music and use of the synthesizer in one of the album’s early songs, “Giorgio by Moroder.” A beautiful orchestral and electronic mix drives the story. Backed by an incredible work of musicianship, Giorgio’s tale is for the macrocosm that is “Random Access Memories.” The song “Within” is Daft Punk trying something new while staying on target. A very human piano accompaniment carries a digitalized voice: “I am lost / I cannot even remember my name.” The robotic falsetto voice is heartbreaking. It’s exemplifying a pain associated with robotics and digitization. Daft Punk doesn’t mean to criti-
cize technology. There’s a recurring struggle between order and liberation. The track that strategically follows “Within” is “Lose Yourself To Dance.” With a Michael Jackson feel, Pharrell recommends letting go because “I know you don’t get a chance to take a break this often / I know your life is speeding and it isn’t stopping.” “Motherboard” showcases technology with a wide array of gorgeous instruments. You can almost see the electrons traveling along a circuit board. “Touch” is one of two tracks that push the struggle to its limits. Robotic vocals transform into the humanizing voice of Paul Williams. “Touch,” he whispers. The song is liberated when Williams sings, “Kiss.” A 1920s instrumental break and a children’s choir create a humanizing experience. The second track to push these themes is “Contact.” It begins with an astronaut’s voice-over from space. What better way to show the coexistence of humanity and technology than portraying the journey of an astronaut? The ending of the song and album is heart pounding. Daft Punk epitomizes dance music, especially internationally. These tracks will fuel that success. Regardless, the true artistry of this album comes when it’s taken as a whole. The experimentation is what’s artistic, innovative and ultimately lasting about “Random Access Memories.”

Tattoos may be giving wrong idea to employers Graduate student conducts study found job applicants with visible tattoos are less likely to be hired By Abby Welsh Managing Editor
People choose to express themselves however they want, but Holly Lovey and her best friend decided bonding by ink would do the trick. Lovey, a junior, got a tattoo symbolizing her friendship with her best friend when she was 18 years old. “We were inseparable growing up and during school,” Lovey said. “ It was kind of like a mid-life crisis because we were going to different colleges so we got a tattoo.” The history of tattoos had a much different meaning in the 1900s than it does now. They are traced back to sailors, circus performers and gang members, inking their body to remember people and places they’ve been, said Ryan Whorton, a graduate student in the University’s Industrial and Organizational doctoral program. Whorton encourages people to express themselves through the beautiful artwork of tattoos, but his recent study highlights potential problems with tattoos. Whorton conducted research with Scott Highhouse, a professor
in the Psychology Department, to examine the effects of applicant tattoos on the hiring attitudes of managers who select employees. He presented the idea of the study in front of a group of graduate students at the University when their faces “lit up the room,” he said. “I pitched the idea because, being a person with tattoos, I’ve noticed how differently I have been treated,” Whorton said. “I also believe this is something to really pay attention to, because young people like getting tattoos.” While Lovey is considering getting another tattoo, she made sure she got her first tattoo in a place hidden for her own reasons. “My tattoo is very small and is in a private place for professionalism,” she said. “Something I discussed with my mom were limited job opportunities if I put it in a visible place.” Although there may be signs that attitudes toward tattoos are becoming more tolerant, Whorton’s study shows that hiring managers may not be as accepting of this social change. Whorton and Highhouse’s
research had a sample of hiring managers, investigating the degree to which their attitudes toward applicants were influenced by their tattoos. “We wanted to know if applicant tattoos have an observable effect on hiring attitudes and if the only motivation was concern for customer reactions,” Whorton said. “This area of research is becoming more important as more people with visible tattoos are searching for work and entering the work force.” Participants were asked to examine a job description, a resumé, and a picture of an applicant. Every participant saw the same resumé but was randomly given a job description for a customer service help desk attendant who dealt with the public or an airline call center employee who didn’t. The researchers used pictures of five males with different styles of painted on tattoos to capture gen-

Movies that were originally released in 2D, such as Titanic, Jurassic Park, and Star Wars-Episode I: The Phantom Menace have recently been re-released in 3D. There are various reasons why movie studios release or rerelease these films, but Lucas Ostrowski,instructor for the department of theater and film, believes that the number one reason behind this trend is money. At the Cinemark Woodland Mall Cinema 5 in Bowling Green, a 2D ticket to see Ironman 3 (post-matinee) is five dollars, where as a ticket to see the same film in 3D is $7.75. The 3D price is obviously higher. Having this expensive option, along with having 2D profits would bring in more money for the film studios. However, money is not the only reason behind 3D films. “Fans are able to re-experience the films in theaters in a different [and] unique way they’ve never had,” Ostrowski said. The 3D aspect can change the visual film experience for the moviegoer. People who weren’t able to see the film in theaters when it originally came out, such as children who are now adults, are now able to see it for the first time close in its original cinematic environment. Dr. Dan Shoemaker, an instructor in the Popular Culture Department, said, “Jurassic Park and Titanic are getting 3D releases because they made piles of money the first time around, and their narratives involve a lot of visual spectacle. The latter
factor renders the films good choices for the 3D treatment; the former renders them good financial risks.” 3D films are not without their faults. While these films may make more money for the studios, the high ticket prices can deter people from paying. Junior Mitchel Weber, choose watching 2D films over 3D. “2D because they are classic. Plus, I can’t justify spending extra money to see something in 3D. Also, wearing the 3D glasses could be annoying for some people, especially for people who have to wear them over their regular glasses.” Besides money, technical issues can also cause moviegoers to stay away from 3D films. “If the 3D aspects of the film are incorporated in a contrived or clumsy way, the effects seldom add to the power of the film’s narrative and just seem like a cheap and cheesy gimmick. Conversely, spectacular 3D effects can upstage and overpower a weak story. 3D effects can help the visual aesthetics of a film, but they can’t help bad acting, weak characterization, or a stupid plot. 3D effects might help make a good film better, but they don’t really help a bad film become a good film,” Shoemaker said. When asked if 3D films will completely take the place of 2D films, Ostrowski said, “Absolutely not. 3D is still a gimmick and not necessary.” He goes on to say that 3D films cost more money to produce, and that we are more likely to see 3D

Freshman Daniela Carrillo reached her goal and will now compete with the Mexican National Team in the World Championships PHOTO PROVIDED

By Dan Kotnik Sports Reporter
W hile most freshmen will be spending their summers back home reconnecting with friends and family, one particular freshman has different summer vacation plans. Daniela Carrillo, a freshman on the women’s swim team, will cap off a great season with a trip to Barcelona, Spain, w ith the Mex ican National Team to compete in the World Championships. “I’ve been tr ying to compete for the National Team for several meets over the past years and now that it actually happened, it was really exciting”, Carrillo said. Ca r r i l lo qua l i f ied a nd won i n t he 100-meter breast st roke at t he Mex ican Nationa l Championship earlier this month w ith a time of 1:10 : 97, ma k ing her the only sw immer to meet t he World Championship qua lif y ing standards.

“I’ve been trying to compete for the National Team for several meets over the past years and now that it actually happened, it was really exciting.” Daniela Carrillo | Swim Team making her goals a reality. “We talked about it at the beginning of the year as a possible goal for her, but it was more of a soft goal about 10 months ago,” Martin said. “However, she grew and learned a lot over this season and by the end of the season. We knew it was a much more realistic goal.” Carrillo came onto a team that was largely made up of underclassmen, forcing Carrillo and her fellow freshman to step up into roles they were not used to. “We had to jump into tough situations and adapt quickly and bring in points in order to win the close meets,”
sa id f reshma n Nicole Hra nchook. “Daniela is a hard working individual and is ver y dedicated to the sport. She didn’t seem to have an issue fitting in to the team at all.” Ca rrillo, a native of Hermosillo, Mexico, has had a season to remember in just her first year at Bowling Green. During the regular season, Carrillo racked up 11 top two finishes including five wins. At the MAC championships, she earned another two second place finishes and also set two Bowling Green school records in the 100- and 200-meter breast stroke. Her per forma nces ea rned her a place on t he A ll-M AC second team and also advanced her to the NCA A championships, making her the first Falcon swimmer to do so since Cher yl Patteson in 1996. “I’m pretty sure the NCA A championship is my biggest accomplishment so far because of how hard it is to get in to,” Carrillo said. “I always pursued it as a goal the whole year, but when I finally made it I was very excited.” Da n iela’s i mpressive sw i m m i ng
career didn’t begin in Northwest Ohio, though. Carrillo started competitive swimming at the age of 5, along with her older sister Lucía, at the encouragement of their mother. “I a lways looked up to my sister because we both used to swim in the same events growing up,” Carrillo said. At age 15, Carrillo went to her first national meet and by the time she arrived at the University, she held the Mexican national record for all ages in the 100meter breast stroke. Now, just a few short years later, Carrillo is ready and excited to represent her native country at the World Championships. “I mean, it’s the World Championships so I’m pretty excited,” Carrillo said. “I don’t even think it’s hit me yet that I’m going to be there.” As for being in Barcelona, Spain, a Spanish speaking countr y, Carrillo said she’s excited to be in a place where most people speak Spanish. “It’s definitely going to be more comfortable for me,” Carillo said. “I know it’ll be a lot easier for me to order at restaurants.”
Rain, snow results in canceled sports games. City shows appreciation Rescheduling baseball, softball games may be a complicated process for sports teams “We let the public By Brian Klueter Sports Reporter
Softball and baseball are both affected by outdoor weather, but at the University, rescheduling the games can be a complicated process. When bad weather strikes Bowling Green, outdoor athletic events such as baseball and softball games become risks for student athletes. Problems such as rain, snow, wind or high temperatures can cause the games to be postponed or canceled. At the end of the season the baseball team had a total of seven non-conference games canceled, while the softball team ended with 11 games being canceled due to weather. In an area where weather conditions change constantly, its realistic to expect that the games will probably be postponed or canceled. Mark Shook, interim athletic director and associate athletics director for Compliance and Student-Athlete Services, said weather is 99 percent responsible for canceled softball and baseball games. “We let the public and the appropriate people know, preferably ahead of time, that the game has been postponed or canceled,” Shook said. Mid-A merican Conference policy is also taken into consideration when game dates
need to be changed. According to the softball and baseball schedules on the University’s Athletics website, conference games are more likely to get rescheduled than nonconference games. Lesley Irvine, the associate athletics director of the Sports Administration, said that a decision to cancel or postpone a game comes from communication between multiple parties. The parties that need to be contacted include the head softball or baseball coaches, operations, sports administrators and the opposing team’s school. Cancellations are usually made before a game, in order to inform the home and opposing team about the weather conditions before they leave their destinations. “The number one priority is the safety of the student athletes, and making sure that playing conditions are suitable for them,” Irvine said. When scheduled games don’t occur because postponement or cancellations, some students are not happy to hear the news. Sophomore Kellan Godfrey, is slightly deterred from going to games after they have become canceled or rescheduled for later dates. “I love the sport, but it makes me not want to go to games some-

times,” Godfrey said. Rescheduling games that have been postponed involves a number of factors. The rescheduled date must be early enough in the season to fit it into the teams already busy schedule and the date must be available for both competing teams. It’s not unusual for games such as softball and baseball to be postponed in an area that has unpredictable weather. The student athlete’s safety is the number-one priority for the University and Athletics Department, while also making decisions dealing with weather ahead of time, Irvine said. This creates both a suitable and enjoyable environment for the student athletes and for the fans that attend the games.
ALEX KREMPASKY SPORTS EDITOR
After moving to the Bay Area, I noticed something almost immediately— people love the professional teams. The Oakland Athletics and the San Francisco Giants are in full swing in the Major League Baseball season, both sit in second place in their respected divisions. The San Jose Sharks in the National Hockey League are currently in the Stanley Cup Playoffs and the Golden State Warriors were just eliminated in the National Basketball Association’s playoffs. The Giants are by far the most popular baseball team in the Bay, probably because they’ve been so successful, but they have the stellar fan base there every game. AT&T Park has a sell out streak dating back to this past season and it doesn’t look to be stopping anytime soon. I came at a great time in Bay Area sports because the Golden State Warriors were making their NBA playoff run. Everybody in Oakland, San Francisco and San Jose were watching the games against the San Antonio Spurs especially for the games later in these series. Every day that there was a game,
you’d see half of the train decked out in blue and gold Warriors garb, even the old grandmas were decked out, ready for the game at six in the morning. One morning, I walked into Subway to get a sub for lunch and I had a Raiders hat on for work, and I had a Berkeley police officer come up to me and ask me how the team was going to do this year. He did not know I was working for them, but he saw me as just another fan. It was a real change to see this kind of passion for sports teams. Coming from Columbus, the only fandom I’ve really experienced is Ohio State football. Now, I’m not saying that Ohio State fandom is bad— it’s just not the same as the fandom in the Bay Area. Rather than being the team that represents a school or university, these teams represent an entire city and an entire metropolitan area. No matter who you are, what race you are or who you love, everybody can get together and go to the games together in the Bay Area.

One way he prepares is stretiching his stomach out by eating four pounds of cauliflower and drinking fluids until he can’t drink anymore. “Wit h food as big as t he g y ros, I won’t eat anything solid at least a day before I attempt the cha l lenge,” McDona ld said. “I keep an eye on my health and if I ever did notice issues where the food was making me unhealthy, I would stop

The Sandusky amusement park has been named the best park in the world for 15 years in a row and hopes the addition of Gatekeeper will keep that streak going.

TATTOO From Page 5 The researchers used pictures of five males with different styles of painted on tattoos to capture general attitudes toward tattoos in the employee selection context. After examining the information, the hiring managers were asked to rate their attitude toward employing the applicant by completing a short questionnaire. Overall, the two researchers saw that hiring managers had less positive attitudes when shown an applicant with several tattoos than candidates with a single tattoo. “The managers were reluctant to hire heavily tattooed applicants, even though they met all the criteria listed in the job description and would never have face-to-face interaction with a customer,” Whorton said.
