WEST HAVEN— Fear ran rampant last week as students at the University of New Haven discovered that some students had been diagnosed with scabies. Paula Cappuccia, Director of Health Services, sent out an informational e-mail to all students explaining the mite on Wednesday, Oct. 24. Unfortunately, before the e-mail was received students all over campus were jumping to conclusions about this common parasite. First of all, scabies is not like head lice. Scabies is microscopic, whereas one can easily see head lice. Also, lice crawl or jump from head to head. Scabies

Scabies cannot be spread by the use of the same washing and drying machines. Anything that cannot be washed in a washing machine should be disinfected, or put in a sealed bag for two weeks. By cutting the mite off from human skin, it cannot survive for more than two weeks. Some objects can be bagged and placed in a freezer. This kills the mite within a few days.

MIDDLESBROUGH, England— Oink.cd was shut down early Tuesday, Oct. 23, by British and Dutch police, closing what is possibly the leading private BitTorrent site for music worldwide. The website, which is based out of a home in the UK, provided some of the biggest leaks in music this year. This action will certainly cripple music sharing drastically on the Internet. Most of the music that managed to make its way to the Internet before a release usually came from an Oink member. The closed nature of the site made it easier to weed out serious members. Donations were also encouraged, not enforced, to help maintain the site. At the time of the closure, the site was host to about 180,000 members. Users were only allowed access to the site by invitation in order to help maintain a closed operation. Once members were admitted, a strict ratio requirement was implemented to help maintain a serious file-sharing environment. Personally, it was quite possibly one of the best sites for music lovers on the Internet. Just about any

The most common infection is through prolonged skin-to-skin contact. This does not include hand shakes or hugs. This does include sleeping in the same bed. The other way a scabies mite can enter the skin is through an inani-

Students Experiment During National Chemistry Week
By HEATHER BROWN AND ERIN ENNIS STAFF WRITERS
By Dan Osipovitch WEST A weekly recap of the positives & negatives at UNH
It’s finally Halloween! Beware All Hallow’s Eve, a night of ghastly goodness. Bah, who am I kidding—it’s a night to go out, have fun, dress up in some kinky fashion, eat candy until you throw up, and have an excuse for it all in the morning. Happy Halloween everyone!
If I hear the word “scabies” one more time, I think I might… well, Zack and Celina might be held liable if I wrote that. But seriously, people. It’s NOT that big of a deal. People act as if it’s the plague or something. It’s just a little tiny mite that causes some itching and that easily goes away. The jokes are starting to get old after hearing the same ones over and over and over and over again. And the rumors— the rumors! “There was this couch and this guy sat on it…then the scabies got to him and ate his skin off.” If you’re going to worry about anything, be worried about the upcoming flu season, which will be harder to deal with than scabies. PUHLEEZE!
This new laundry thing is pretty cool. We now have the ability to check out which washers and dryers are being used before we are disappointed to find a filled laundry room. It saves time a n d e n e r g y. However, they seemed to forget the one building where people have to go outside in the rain, cold, and snow to the measly two washers/ dryers. Yes, I’m talking about Ruden. Please add us!!!!
There is always at least one computer in the Bartels Lobby that is broken! Are working computers too much to ask for?
HAVEN— Each year, the students of the Forensic Science and Chemistry Club (FSCC) showcase experiments and sponsor other fun activities for National Chemistry Week. This year, National Chemistry Week was from Monday, Oct. 22 to Thursday, Oct. 25 with Mole Day on Tuesday. The Forensic Science and Chemistry Club
set up a table in Bartels Lobby to share its love of chemistry with the entire campus. The first day of National Chemistry Week was met with great enthusiasm by the students walking through Bartels Lobby. Passing students were encouraged to make “gak.” Using only Elmer’s Glue, warm water, and a borax solution, interested students created a slimy yet satisfying substance they could play with for days. The experi-
ment showcased how the properties of one substance, in this case the glue, could be altered by the addition of another substance, the borax solution. Even Greg Overend, Director of Student Activities, stopped by to try his hand at a little chemistry. A scavenger hunt was prepared for Mole Day (Tuesday). Students had to start at Bartels and follow clues leading them

Wildfires Unify California
By SARA MCGUIRE STAFF WRITER
SANTIAGO CANYON, California— Over the past few days, California has been experiencing cooler, more humid weather. This is good news for the victims and firefighters of the California wildfires. While this break is indeed brief, is leaves firefighters “cautiously optimistic,” as Chris Caswell of the Orange County Fire Authority put it. The wildfires have not only had an impact on those residing in the state itself, but
the entire country. One UNH student, Rachel Barton, whose family lives in one of the areas hardest struck, described the situation: “Having gone through the Cedar Fires in 2003, I can say that people in San Diego always come together for each other. It amazes me how people seem to always want to help everyone else. I was reading about a call for donations at Qualcomm Stadium, and then a few hours later there was another notice saying to stop because they had all the donations they needed. It's
a shame that it takes disasters like this to bring people together, but it's also good that people want to help others in need.” The Governor of California feels the same way, and was inspired to comment upon the state’s unity, saying that while the fires were devastating, they were, “a good vehicle, a motivator for everyone to come together.” During his visit to a command post near the location of Orange County’s Santiago Canyon fire, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger explained his state’s
predicament, their coming together, and what aid could be given to the victims. While the bonding the state has exhibited has been incredible, the over 4,000 evacuees, are in a different situation. Currently, 4,403 people are scattered amongst 28 shelters. They are slowly returning to what remains of their homes, as hundreds of evacuees have already flooded back into parts of San Bernardino County. Bruce Heinemann, an evacSee FAMILIES page 14

Intense fire at beach house on North Carolina Resort Island kills 7 college students COLUMBIA, South Carolina— A weekend of fun vanished in a storm of fire and smoke that killed seven college friends and left behind a gutted beach house and an emotionally devastated campus. Six of the seven killed in the fire Sunday morning in Ocean Isle Beach, N.C., attended the University of South Carolina; the other attended Clemson University. Six other South Carolina students in the house survived. "My heart goes out to everyone involved," South Carolina student Lindsey Riddick, 19, said Sunday evening. "I just can't fathom that at all." Dennis Pruitt, the school's dean of students, said many of the students were friends from the Delta Delta Delta sorority and the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity. The father of one survivor said several had gone to high school together in Greenville. Officials said the students were staying at a house owned by the parents of one of the students. The fire struck sometime before 7 a.m. and burned completely through the first and second floors, leaving only part of the frame standing. The waterfront home — named "Changing Channels" — was built on stilts, forcing firefighters to climb a ladder onto the house's deck to reach the first living floor. One witness described seeing three students sitting on the ground screaming as the home burned, and another jumping from a window into a waterway. The six survivors were hospitalized and released, Mayor Debbie Smith said. The fire's cause was being investigated. News Corp. and NBC launch online video site 'Hulu' as YouTube alternative LOS ANGELES— NBC and Fox are set to launch an advertising-supported online video site that hosts programming from varied entertainment companies in a bid to seize viewers from YouTube, the broadcasters said. A test version of the site, Hulu.com, went online Monday, with plans to premiere a final version in a few months, company officials said. The site, developed by News Corp. and NBC Universal, a unit of General Electric Co., offers free viewing of full-length films and TV episodes, supported by advertising. It will host programming from the two networks, as well as TV shows and films from Sony Corp. and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Inc. "Consumers identify with shows and films," rather than networks, Hulu chief executive Jason Kilar said. "When you aggregate great content together, it makes things easier for the user."

Delta Chi Gives This Holiday Season
WEST HAVEN— These past two weeks have been extremely busy for the Brothers of the New Haven Chapter of Delta Chi. We would like to thank all who came out to donate blood at the Red Cross Blood Drive. It was a great success with record numbers. This past week, the Brothers and Associ-
ate Members had their annual retreat where they built trust and had a great time getting to know each other. During the weekend, we had our Halloween party where costumes ranged from cavemen to Robin Hood. On Sunday, Oct. 28 the Brothers volunteered for the Special Olympics in New Haven at Hill House
High School, assisting in volleyball and many other activities. In the coming month of November, we will be having our annual White Carnation Formal at the Bella Vianca, attending the IFSC Greek Pig Roast at the German Club, helping out at soup kitchens and having a Thanksgiving dinner.

make sure you wipe them with disinfectant and wash your bed linens. A student was overheard telling his mother that 86% of students have been diagnosed with having scabies. This is dramatically false. Health Services is aware of 10 positive cases of the infestation, which contains students from different buildings on campus. Of those ten people, a few might not even have scabies and are just getting treated as a precaution. While this may sound absurd, treatment is greatly encouraged. Symptoms of infestation are usually pimple-like rashes that can be found in the webs of feet and hands, elbows, knees, wrists, shoulder blades, breasts and genitalia. Severe itching is common, especially at night. Treatment includes a lotion, which is rubbed on a clean body and kept on for eight hours then washed off in the morning. Going back to your health care provider and checking your progress is just as important as receiving treatment in the first place. The same day that Cappuccia e-mailed
students, an e-mail was also sent from President Kaplan’s office, which mentioned MRSA, bacteria that causes staph infections. While the e-mail never stated that UNH had cases of MRSA, students quickly assumed that the mention of the bacteria meant that it was on campus. Cappuccia confirmed that there have been two cases of MRSA on campus this semester. However, one student was treated in September and is now cured. The other student was treated a few weeks ago and is also cured. A feeling of panic has been connected to MRSA within the past month due to the bacteria’s appearance in the news regarding its connection to deaths on college campuses. Cappuccia explained
mainly the elderly or those with weakened immune systems. Just like scabies, treatment and follow-up care are absolutely important. Similarly, washing your hands and not sharing things (especially beds) will not only protect you from the upcoming flu season, but MRSA and scabies as well. Health Services understands how fearful students are at this point in time. “We want to work with students to put those fears at ease,” said Cappuccia. Students are encouraged to stop by Health Services in the quad-side of Sheffield Hall even if they just think they are at risk for scabies and/or MRSA. “We are here to help and we are true professionals,” said Cappuccia. For more information about scabies and MRSA, visit the C e n Anoka, Minnesota is ters for the self-proclaimed Disease Halloween capital of C o n t r o l and Prethe world vention’s website at www. that MRSA is not a cdc.gov/.

USGA President’s Corner USGA Landmarks This past week at USGA we had several important landmark events. First of all, under New Business we voted on officially accepting the members of our Judicial Council. Even though the council has been operating prior to last Friday’s meeting due to a constitutional suspension, they are now official. They have been doing a wonderful job thus far and I am convinced that they will continue to work hard and resolve problems that arise. Keep up the good work guys! We also voted to officially organize our 2007-2008 Budget Committee. The Budget Committee has been non-existent so far this year because of a lack of ap-
Louis Eswood III USGA President plicants and availability issues. Last week the USGA Treasurer, Rich Guisti, and Greg Overend sat down and ironed out a meeting time and they will be meeting this week. This is great news for many clubs and organizations that have been locked out of the miscellaneous account to program events. Currently, the miscellaneous budget has more than $41,000 in it. I’m sure that the
Budget Committee will have several requests for that money this week. This past Friday we also officially filled our 20th senate seat. Congratulations to Kathryn for filling that last seat. However, the senate did not remain full for very long. By the end of the meeting, we were forced to read a letter of resignation from a respected, senior senator, Brian Reader. So if anyone is interested, there is now once again an open senate seat. As always, have a great week and we hope to see you at Friday’s USGA meeting at noon in the Alumni Lounge.

Pop Rock. The German Club filled up pretty quickly with people anticipating the headlining band, Medicated Kisses, which was preceded by the two opening bands, Call II Consciousness and Wil Deynes. Call II Consciousness consists of members that attend the University of New Haven.
MEISA members arrived early to help decorate and set up for the show. To go along with the night’s theme, Pop Rocks and soda were handed out as refreshments. Although the turnout wasn’t too great, the bands were very interesting, to say the least. Keep an eye out for upcoming MEISA Monday shows.

The Truth About Universal Healthcare
Democratic presidential hopeful Senator John Edwards announced this weekend that prescription drug companies should have to wait up to two years to begin advertising their new products to consumers. Sunday, Oct. 28, Edwards was talking about his plan to regulate a proliferation of misleading drug ads. According to Edwards, “with such aggressive and often misleading drug company marketing, it's too easy for advertising — instead of doctors or proven results — to influence families' health decisions." But how many of those watching the commercials can even afford to take some of this medicine that is being offered? This problem brings me to this week’s irksome topic. Healthcare. Every American deserves free healthcare – especially in a day where medical supplies and doctor appointments cost so damn much. One reason that universal healthcare is such a fragile topic, however, is because it’s a form of socialism. Everybody would have healthcare. However, there are
two things to consider when using the “Communism” excuse for debating against universal healthcare. If there was basic universal healthcare in America, people could still rely on private companies to provide them with addition-
Zack Rosen Assistant Editor al benefits to their healthcare plan. This alone would turn it away from socialism. Secondly, think of the other forms of “socialism” used in America today. If I wanted to send a letter to somebody in California, all I would need to do is put a stamp on it and send it through the United States Postal Service. How frighteningly Communist. The USPS, however socialist in some viewpoints, isn’t forced on anybody and allows for other forms of postal delivery. FedEx, UPS, that company with the yellowy truck … they
are all additional parts to basic postal service, which everybody is able to use. So next time you think that universal healthcare will take us one step closer to the terrible socialist ways of life, consider a personal rule I like to believe in. All or nothing. If your only reason to denounce universal healthcare is because it has socialist tendencies, stop sending mail. Many worry that universal healthcare would put America so far into debt that it would become completely bankrupt. According to the Connecticut Coalition for Universal Health Care, however, the Congressional Budget Office found that it would actually save $100 to $200 billion per year. Britain’s still around and functioning perfectly fine with universal healthcare. And so is Canada. So stop following your party’s leaders on this nonpartisan issue, read up on the information instead of assuming false facts and figures, and quit your bitching and worrying about the United States converting into a socialist nation.

Why Does My Birth Control Cost So Much?
One of the best things about being in college is that you have freedom: freedom over the classes you take, the clothes you wear, and above all your sexual choices and health. This can mean abstaining or being active. A woman used to be able to go into our health services on the day of a woman's clinic and after a quick exam she could get her birth control pills for a small cost. If anyone has tried this recently, they would have come across a huge barrier. While they can still get an exam, they cannot get their birth control pills. This freedom no
longer exists. Last January, a bill was passed by the Connecticut General Assembly. This bill contained an approximately two line statement that said that colleges and universities in Connecticut can no longer get birth control pills at a nominal cost. This is creating a terrible problem for people who have been relying on this service, mainly for those who cannot go through their parents. If a girl cannot, for whatever reason, go through her parents and cannot get birth control pills through school she still has a few options. She can abstain (Hard!),
use only a condom (not as protective as birth control), or go to a local clinic, such as Planned Parenthood. While Planned Parenthood is a great option, it is a far walk from the shuttle stop in New Haven. This bill is affecting the choices women have at the University of New Haven. This must be remedied and there is something we can do about it. We can write to or call Senator Dodd, (his information is available at Health Services) or you can go to Health Services and sign the petition which will go to Senator Dodd so this can be fixed! -Desiree Holian
Steps for Success By Sijith Salim - www.Sijith.com
Is Suicide an Answer to Life’s Problems? “Dad, you had high hopes for my education. You used to boast to others that I would pass out of school with high scores. But when I saw my exam grade, I couldn’t help but to cry. I failed. I have failed in living up to you expectations. I feel like I have betrayed you. I will be a laughing stock and I can’t handle it. So I have decided to end my life. I really loved you mom. I know you will miss me, but I had to leave.” “I thought nobody cared. My mother was upset all the time. My dad was on my back because of school. My friends deserted me. I thought no one needed me. Everything kept going wrong. I started to fail at work and I didn’t have any other options but to end my
life. But now I regret taking my life.” “I was a girl who had lots of dreams for life: a good family, a loving husband, and happiness. I wanted to be a civil servant, dedicating my life to serving people. When a prestigious university called for an interview, I was so excited. When I was rejected, I lost all hope. I thought I was a failure and didn’t want to continue anymore. I decided to end my life. But now I feel that was the worst decision I could have made.” These are just a few examples of how someone might feel about committing suicide after he or she has already done it.

On your way to finding a solution you might experience pain, but when you find the solution you will have a new way to solve problems in the future. Everyone has problems. You can choose to be a part of the problem, or a part of the solution. You can choose to be influenced by the negativity around you. You can reflect that cautiousness and lack of confidence. You
can contribute to that downward spiral with your attitude. In that case, you have chosen to be part of the problem. On the other hand, you can choose to be part of the solution.

liberal-minded bills that intrigues me. It is the stubbornness of the American people that is the true anomaly here. Conservative traditionalists in America are primary contributors to the inflexibility of our arguments and leave the country in neutral when it is time to move. Right now it is time to move, but we are stuck yet again. Our country has an opportunity for equality ahead of it that will never be reached due to disagreements. It is 2007, and if the American people cannot unite now then what hope is there for the future? Must laws be implemented to spark fear and birth change? There are different types of people all

Karen England, Executive Director of CRI, had this to say of the law: "With this decision, Gov. Schwarzenegger has told parents that their values are irrelevant.

According to Thomasson, laws trying to reverse insensitivity targeting those with different sexual perspectives in turn make him the victim. He is the one whose morals are always violated, not the two-father family that faces ridicule and stress. Trudging along the road of equality, groups of conservatives are aiming to crush progress and stomp acceptance in the name of tradition.

Saw 4 Lacks Innovation and Police Shut Down Largest Pirated Overall Horror By JOSEPH CHAPMAN STAFF WRITER
Like the tagline says, “if it’s Halloween, it must be Saw.” Yes, the newest and most popular modern horror movie franchise has released its fourth installment. For those unfamiliar with the series, the Saw films are notorious for containing graphic yet creative violence and thematically representing the importance of appreciating one’s own life. Thus far, the franchise has enjoyed success from the first three films. But can
a fourth one thrill, chill, and disturb fans like its predecessors? And perhaps more importantly, should the producers reconsider there plans of making a fifth and sixth installment? The story picks up shortly after the third movie left off. Jigsaw is dead, but he vows his work will continue. The main character is police detective Rigg (Lyriq Bent) who is on the search to find two of his fellow officers. He discovers one is dead, but the other may still be alive. When his current partner goes missing, Rigg
learns that the time he has to find now two of his colleagues is dwindling. As is typical in a Saw film, all

The album ranged from acoustic songs to catchy, pop songs to songs with intense and heavy guitar solos. No World for Tomorrow is a continuation of lead guitarist/vocalist Claudio Sanchez’s graphic novel series, The Amory Wars. Each Coheed and Cambria album is designed to tell the story of The Amory Wars. In the graphic novels, the
story revolves around Coheed and Cambria as husband and wife. Sanchez writes himself into the novel portraying himself as a messiah. This latest release actually records the last segment in The Amory Wars saga. If you haven’t picked up No World for Tomorrow, I suggest you do. Just don’t expect it to outdo their previous one.

Coheed and Cambria Harry Potter Reveal Continue Rock Opera Rocks the Popular Series
By JESSICA BALABAN STAFF WRITER
After the release of Good Apollo I’m Burning Star IV Volume One: From Fear Through The Eyes of Madness in 2005, I didn’t think Coheed and Cambria could make a better album. Good Apollo I’m Burning Star IV Volume Two: No World for Tomorrow was released this past Tuesday, Oct. 23. After listening to the album, there is an obvious amount of repetition. Each song sounds similar to songs I have already heard by them. The CD itself is still remarkable, just a tad bit disappointing, and reused to say the least. I did enjoy the variation of genres between each song.

J.K. Rowling, author of the Harry Potter series, announced last week that the beloved character of Albus Dumbledore is gay. Asked if Dumbledore ever found true love, Rowling told a packed Carnegie Hall in New York City that he had once loved Gellert Grindelwald, a dark wizard whose terrible deeds were only bested by those of Voldermort himself. The announcement brought about a collective gasp from the crowd of fans, silence, and finally applause. In the series, Grindelwald is mentioned in the very first book of the series, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, as an infamous dark wizard defeated

and others may make some viewers leave the theatre. Again, this can be a good or bad thing depending on a viewer’s preference and tolerance for gore. Can Saw 4 be considered a horror film? No. Just like the second and third one, this film’s success does not depend on whether or not it can scare an audience, but rather, if it can make an audience queasy. Only the first film of the series contains elements that intend to scare. Saw 4 rightfully belongs in the subgenre of horror films, the splatter film. In short, anyone going to this movie looking for a fright will be disappointed. The one thing that keeps drawing viewers back to the Saw

His situation is not unlike many other victims’, and he explains the process of moving-on in a series of questions, “The kind of mood you’re in is, what do you do today? What do you do tomorrow? Just make a list and get it done.” Heinemann goes on to say that, while it makes sense
financially to rebuild the homes, he and his family may never return to live in the area. The wildfires have touched many across the country, but this effect is minimal compared to the thousands who are living through it. Over 500,000 acres have been ravaged by the wildfires, changing thousands of lives. These lives are scattered not only throughout the country, but the world, as
many look towards their home state with worry for their loved ones, friends, and colleagues. Barton describes her predicament, “I don't think most people understand how scary it is to be in that situation. I'm one of the lucky ones, though, because my family and I still have a home to go back to and we didn't lose anything. There are so many people who can't say that.”

After losing their first four matches of the season, the Chargers played exactly .500 ball for the rest of the year - going 6-6-1 during that 13-match stretch. Included among the highlights was the first goal scored against South-
