Pike leads a brief and organized first forum

Following a controversial election, newly elected Student Government President Chelsee Pike conducted the first forum of the 2013-2014 school year. On Aug. 22 at 12:30 p.m. in the recreation center’s multipurpose room, Pike started the forum with a thank you speech directed towards the representatives and students for their continued support of SGA. The forum proceeded with President Mescon welcoming back the SGA representatives and encouraging the students to continue to voice their concerns. “I’m so very proud of the progress with student government over the past five years. Many of our acts are possible because of your involvement,” said Mescon. The executive board followed with a concise introduction and a few announcements. Overall, the forum was brief and organized. Kemi Faderin, representative for African Student Organization, said, “The first meeting was great. It was precise and straight to the point, as I liked. They seemed organized so I hope the former continues throughout the school year.” Get to know your SGA Executive Board:

Cougar Kickoff Screen on the Not-so-Green The Dark Knight Rises moved inside Although faced with a possible setback because of the weather on Wednesday, Aug. 21, The Cougar Kickoff Committee’s event went on without a hitch. Hours before the event, as rain loomed, the committee made an impromptu decision to move their Screen on the Green from Woodruff Park on the RiverPark campus to the multipurpose room of the recreation center on Main Campus. In the works since last semester, the event involved Swank, a movie rights company that allowed CSU to rent the movie “The Dark Knight Rises” for about $550. For some it may seem a hefty price, but compared to movies that have recently been released it is cheap. Newer movies tend to be more expensive to rent. After getting the rights to show the movie, Carmike Cinemas was contacted,

and they donated three massive bags of popcorn for the night. Erika Galdamez, event coordinator, also went and purchased candy and soft drinks for students to enjoy during the movie. The change of location did not impact the number of students that showed up as much as some of the committee thought it would. Overall, they were pleased with the attendance. “At first I didn’t think many people would come, but in the end we had a good turn out so I was really happy,” Erika said. An estimated 60 people came and stayed for most of the film. Melissa Anright walked in and grabbed a box of Reeses Pieces before sitting down to watch the movie. “I’ve never seen the last Batman movie and it’s cool that they have it on a big screen for us! It would have been nice to

watch it under the stars, but I definitely don’t mind the AC,” said Anright. Many resident assistants came to support and enjoy the movie. Skye Williams, RiverPark RA, loaded up on candy and Dr. Pepper, and laid down on a blanket to watch the movie. “Yeah it was good! I’m glad I came!” said Williams. Overall, the event went as smoothly as it could have gone. The coordinators can only hope that next time the weather will be a bit more cooperative. Ironically, it ended up not raining at all down on the RiverPark campus, but the threat of it was enough to scare the committee into moving the event to a better location. And while watching the movie under the night sky would have been a great addition to Cougar Kickoff week, it was just as enjoyable to watch it in the spacious multipurpose room.

CSU goes green with bikes and splatter Bike riders peddle their way to the Color Party

Thursday, Aug. 22, Cougar Kick- Off week continued with the fourth annual Bike Ride with Mescon. At 5:30 p.m. the participants left from the Lumpkin Center and peddled their way downtown to Woodruff Park. Ride on Bikes and The Bike Shop provided a limited amount of bicycles and safety wear for participants in need. After a quick safety lesson, the bikers began their journey using the Rails to Trails to safely travel from Main campus to River Park. “We want everyone to think green and think how close we are from campus. Any event where we can incorporate both campuses is important,” said President Tim Mescon. After the riders finished the bike ride, they had the opportunity to participate in the Color Party. The Students Activity Council hosted the Color Party at which participants came dressed in white shirts and were bombarded with an array of colorful splatter. The students, staff and faculty acted like wild animals and hunted down white shirted individuals to transform them into bright rainbows. “I have never felt so colored in my life. I thought I had a colorful personality, but this tops it all,” said Deandra Fields. SAC provided water guns, snacks and music to aid the participants in their mission. As the event continued, the excessive splattering of students appeared less like rainbows after a rain shower and more like murky, dried moss on a log. Regardless of the change in appearance, the students did not hold a torch to Woodruff Park with its new color scheme.

Hate doing dishes but love cooking? Try the one pot pasta

There is nothing worse than doing dishes. Ten page essays have nothing on the disdain held by college students for dishes. They multiply like rabbits in the sink, but they never seem to belong to anyone. They just appeared. Now they are waiting. Waiting you to wash them. But there is one recipe, one recipe to bet the system. One pot, one dish, done. What could possibly better?



-12 ounces preferred pasta (thin spaghetti in the photo) -1 can diced tomatoes -1 large sweet onion, julienned Directions -4 cloves garlic 1. Put pasta, tomatoes, onion and garlic in large pot. -1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes 2. Pour in stock. 3. Sprinkle basil, pepper and oregano on top. Drizzle olive oil -2 teaspoons dried oregano 4. Cover pot and bring to a boil -2 teaspoons dried basil 5. Reduce to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes, stirring every two -4 1/2 cups vegetable broth minutes. Salt and pepper to taste, then serve. -2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil -large pot -knife

College, Love & a Pen Don’t be the “clingy girlfriend?” It’s been 30 minutes since you last talked to your significant other and you want to know where they are. You just have to figure it out. The passion behind finding where they are could rival Frodo’s determination to get rid of The One Ring. Just as you are about to hit the call button you remember they said they were going to the mall to hang with some friends. Instead of being satisfied that your memory came back before you made a fool of yourself. You decide to go to the mall and find your significant other. There’s nothing wrong with popping up unannounced because you want the attention right?

That’s weird, rud, and a bit creepy. If you find yourself always crashing your significant other’s “hang time” with their friends, Then chances are youare a bit clingy. If you cannot fathom evey spending time apart, then you are a bit clingy. “Clingy girlfriends? Oh, I drop them before they have a chance to mess up my relaxing life. The clingy girlfriends are the ones who call you 20 times in a row to see where you are… right after you talked to them five minutes ago. They won’t even let you get up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom! Nope. I can’t have a clingy girlfriend.” – Danny (student did not want to give his real name. Maybe because he has a clingy girlfriend). Well, Danny does have a point. Being a clingy girlfriend can mess up the balance in your relationship. It can make the one person who you’re supposed to be with to rela, want to hide from you. Don’t be the clingy girlfriend. How can you avoid being a clingy girlfriend? Try getting used to being alone. Every time you have the urge to follow your significant other… Don’t! You do not need to know what your boo is doing every second of every day. That is just weird. We are all grown here, and there is no need to babysit. There is no need to go Mission Impossible on your partner’s social networking sites. Remember: If you go looking for dirt, you’ll find it. Learn to trust. At the end of the day the most common thing clingy girlfriends have in common is that they have trust issues. If you can’t trust your partner, then there is no reason for you to be in a relationship. Maybe you should try growing by yourself first before getting into a relationship. Clingy Girlfriends exist. We all know this, but you can still play your part in not being one of them!

Restaurant Review: Uptown Vietnam Cuisine New Uptown restaurant delivers on cuisine but could use some polish In a small corner storefront at Broadway and 13th, there is a new little Asian café, an exciting development for a part of Broadway that needs to catch up with the rest of growing Uptown Columbus. However, certain elements of the dining experience still require some work. Whether these problems are just something we’ll have to get used to or if they are just new business hiccups remains to be seen. Uptown Vietnam Cuisine brings a very welcomed new option to the neighborhood for lunch and dinner with phở (“fuh”), a meaty noodle soup; ‎Bun, a grilled meat and noodle dish; and fried rice selections. As is typical with Vietnamese cuisine, the portions (especially of the phở) are enormous and only the very hungry should attempt anything from this menu larger than “regular.” Vietnamese dishes tend to be uncomplicated, relying mostly on a few different herbs and meats for flavor, using very little oil, and fresh ingredients, resulting in what is considered some of the healthiest and tastiest regional cooking in the world. Uptown is no slouch here, just bear in mind that the average entrée is nine bucks, but considering the amount of food you get and the quality it’s worth it.

On my last visit I had the “Bún thịt nướng,” a bun dish featuring cooked pork and an egg roll over a bed of rice noodles, lettuce, cucumber, lemon grass, peanuts and fresh mint, which was delightful if a little spicier than I’m used to, and of course there was a lot of left-overs. While the product is above average, the dining experience still leaves a little to be desired. Our servers often seemed confused and unsure of which table was theirs. At one point, someone came out of the kitchen with a dish none of us had ordered and spoke to each person at our table in turn trying to pass it off before wandering over to another section. Also, we had to remind our waitress we needed silverware and chopsticks. This sort of thing isn’t uncommon, I’m afraid; I’ve had similar experiences on my last two visits. Once we had our entrées and the tools

Art Club returns to campus Casual meetings lead to club’s revival

Senior art students Joshua Jarrett and Autumn James began meeting at Iron Bank Coffee to discuss new artists and their own work. As the utility of these casual meetings dawned on the two friends, they decided that an organized art club would be helpful for all art students. “I spent so much time being afraid of showing my work,” James admitted. She hopes that the Art Club will help newer students not only become more comfortable with the competitive environment of the art department and the fear of critique, but also introduce them to contemporary artists who inspire their peers. James explained that art degrees are more difficult than many people imagine. Not only is the program competitive, but it also requires students to spend a great deal of time working out of the classroom. One of the great benefits of an art degree, says James, is that it affords you the opportunity to work side by side with other artists, a rare joy after college for the working artist.

to enjoy them with, we were very happy. The fried rice was a little heavy on the lemongrass but the fish sauce which came with the bun was fantastic, and I think the source of the extra spice. T h e menu also featured some adequate vegetarian options with good tofu substitutions for most of the dishes. For dessert I got a taro bubble tea to-go and was very surprised when it arrived in the form of a smoothie, which sort of nixes the tea aspect, and no bobas, but taro’s still tasty when you can get it. I guess. It’s just the delivery I can’t shake. Maybe it’s the beige walls and the blaring pop music; perhaps it’s how the dining information on their Facebook page is a few cell phone pictures of the takeout menu; or just the dazed waiters. Everything could use a little polish. Still, if you’re downtown and willing to deal with some minor turbulence, you’ll be rewarded with a great meal.

By strengthening networking among artists and by offering a welcoming environment in which artists can discuss and evaluate their own work, the club aims to provide a support system that will make students more successful, both in their department and after graduation. Jarrett pointed out two other benefits of the Art Club. First, he said, is to “represent [the art department] in student government.” Jarrett also sees the club as a better way to connect the art department to main campus, and to the larger community. Jarrett envisions cooperation with the Columbus Museum as a way to raise the profile of the art department and to promote the arts in the Chattahoochee Valley. While Art Club meetings will be open to all, some participation will be limited to art students. For more information, contact Joshua Jarrett and Autumn James, who serve as president and vice president, respectively.

Friday, Aug. 30 at 3:00 p.m., for the 2nd Art Club meeting of the semester. At the meeting participants will help to plan the club’s 1st art show, a post-it note show. All artwork will be done on post-it notes, and individual pieces will be sold for $1-2 as a way to raise money for the club. This should be of special interest to all students because any student can contribute post-it art for the show, regardless of major.

Hacker community comes together to reward security researcher Facebook bounty held for bug finder Earlier this month, Palestinian security researcher Khalil Shreateh found a security flaw on the social website Facebook, and allegedly tried multiple times to report it to Facebook’s security team with no luck. The security bug allowed users who were not friends of other users the ability to post messages on their wall. Shreateh reported to several news reporters that he believed the security team took his claim as a “joke” and did not pay attention to his claims. After several failed attempts to report a vulnerability through proper

channels, Shreateh exploited the bug to report the flaw directly to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook wall. In response, Facebook has decided that it would not reward Shreateh because he violated the company’s term of service by posting the flaw directly on Zukerberg’s wall. However, despite Facebook’s refusal to pay, a fundraiser campaign on GoFundMe is attempting raise money for Shreateh’s

FBI allegedly taking a hacker approach to spying In the wake of Edward Snowden’s leaks of US surveillance tactics to British media, the National Security Agency has endured most of the backlash for spying on people via the Internet, cell phone records and emails, but it seems they are not alone. The Federal Bureau of Investigation appears to be doing some cyber spying of its own. According to the Wall Street Journal, the FBI has been allegedly developing surveillance tools that work in ways similar to the tools hackers use to collect information on suspects. Some of the tools used involve Trojans, spyware and malware. It is also rumored that the FBI created some of these tools internally, while others were purchased. A former FBI official of the agency’s cyber division told the Wall Street Journal that the FBI “hires people who have hacking skill, and they purchase tools that are capable of doing these things.” The official also said that the tools are only used when other surveillance methods will not work. Among the many tools the FBI now have, the most shocking would have to be the one that lets the FBI remotely activate the microphones in Android devices and laptops. It was revealed to the Journal that once the technology is activated, the agency could record

Wacky world news Meat from a test tube? Beef burgers, turkey burgers, tofu burgers, veggie burgers. Lettuce, cheese, tomato, catsup. The hamburger is an American favorite with an endless variety of preparations. But have you ever considered that your hamburger could come from a test tube? Cultured beef, made in a controlled setting using the cells of bovine, was doused with fresh support this week as the first humans publicly tasted burgers made through this controversial process. Of course, in-vitro meat still has negatives, including the fact that it costs more than $300,000 to make, but there is optimism that within the next 10 to 20 years it will transform the way people eat, potentially altering the beef industry forever.

Maiffret, who is chief technology officer at security compliance company Beyond Trust, said to CNET, “Let us all send a message to security researchers across the world and say that we appreciate the efforts they make for the good of everyone.” On the date of this article there have been 288 contributors to the bounty.

conversations unbeknownst to the owner of the device. According to the Journal, the FBI has been working on these hacking tools for more than 10 years. In fact, the FBI has a long history of monitoring data and conversations on computers and mobile devices. In 2002, the bureau collaborated with police to wiretap mobile conversations. The most notable wiretaps were in New Orleans when the Louisiana State Police joined forces with the FBI to investigate New Orleans Saints General Manager Mickey Loomis. Two years after this incident, the bureau renewed efforts to keep that program going. By 2007, the FBI was trying to secretly obtain U.S. citizen’s telephone, Internet, and financial records. Recently, the United States government attempted to obtain the master encryption keys  that Internet companies use to shield millions of users’ private Web communications from eavesdropping.

Is the Loch Ness Monster real? Luis Siret Beach in Villaricos, Spain, became a place of wonder on Thurs. Aug. 22 when a mysterious sea creature spanning at least 13 feet long with something resembling horns on its head was discovered in the advanced stages of decomposition along the shoreline. The find caused widespread speculation as to what it could be, some humorously suggesting it was a link to the Loch Ness Monster, or that it was some sort of sea dragon or water dinosaur. Others surmised it was a mutant fish or some sort of shark species. The best guess here is an oarfish.

Columbus Naval Museum a must see

Photos: Jay Armstead

Too often overlooked even by long time Columbus residents, the National Civil War Naval Museum is a world class destination for those interested in Civil War maritime history. Inside the 40,000 square foot museum, in addition to exhibits like the largest display of Civil War naval flags in the world, you will find the CSS Jackson, a 180 foot ironclad that was burned by Union troops and recovered from the bottom of the Chattahoochee River one hundred years later. There’s no better way to develop a true appreciation for the scale of Civil War naval combat than to stand up close to a period vessel. The museum hosts a number of events, including an annual symposium, summer camps and a living history program. The museum is open to visitors Tuesday through Saturday from 10:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m., and Sunday through Monday between 12:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m.

CSU’s volleyball veam ready for the upcoming season

First volleyball team since 1981 looks to have a successful season Columbus State University’s first volleyball team in over 30 years starts their season on Sept. 6. The brand new program has 16 girls, including four locals and two international students. Under the leadership of first year head coach Casey Cornett, the Lady Cougars will be looking to have a successful season this year. “It is an honor and a humbling experience being the coach of this team, I definitely have some big shoes to fill because [Coach] Mary Blackmon was a

good coach.” Although The Lady Cougars were rated eighth out of 10 in the preseason poll, with teams like Armstrong, Flagler and Montevallo in top spots, Coach Cornett is confident that through hard work they can silence any critics that think they can’t hold the top spot in the Peach Belt Conference. “We have a lot of athleticism, but it will be through hard work that we will become a great team.” The Lady Cougars have a 30 game

Smith University, Limestone College and Fort Valley State University to kick off the 2013 season. The Lady Cougars will then have 11 straight road games, before two home games, two away games, and six home games. All home games will be played in the Lumpkin Center.

Cancer: One would say that the best things in life are free, but are they really? The next time someone gives you a freebie, watch out because one can never know when a present turns foul. The last freebie I got still makes me shudder. Honey glazed pineapple broccoli anyone? Aries: Two wrongs don’t make a right unless it’s math. They can say that 2+2=4 all they want, but when it comes to arithmetic I still don’t know what’s going on. If you can handle horrible things like numbers mixed with letters then you can face anything this week. Taurus: If you ever encounter my cousin the genie and get your three wishes, I certainly hope you’ll do the right thing and make the noble wish. No, not world peace. I’m talking about equal parking for all. Thanks, and tell Barty I said hi. Gemini: Japan will have a strong influence on your life in the upcoming months, so keep in mind that the unluckiest number in Japan is 4. Avoid the number four at all costs and you will be safe from bad sushi all year. Arigato. Leo:Your lucky number this week is 5. Five is the number of appendages on a starfish and classical elements described by Aristotle. Five is also the number in the best combo in a smartphone app called Candy Crush. Do not play that game. Never play that game. It ruins your life. Virgo: In traditional Indian medicine called Ayurveda there are 6 tastes: sour, sweet, bitter, salty, pungent, and astringent. I think this is a valid reason to go out and reexperience your favorite foods. Seriously, go crazy.

Must do’s for college students

Libra: Your fortune on the great pH scale of life is a neutral 7 – neither great nor gruesome. This lukewarm situation could turn to your advantage, though. Simply don’t plan any important work, school or social events whatsoever for the next 7 weeks. Scorpio: Try to get in touch with New Age spirituality this week. Consult the Buddha and the Noble Eightfold Path. While you’re doing this, if you happen to find out why the jewel-encrusted parasol is one of the eight auspicious symbols please let me know. Sagittarius:It was a global blow to astronomy when it was decided that there were no longer 9 planets. But while Pluto no longer has the impact on your life it once had, I assure you there’s enough bad luck from the other planets to keep you busy for a while. Capricorn: It looks like you’re going to be embroiled in a pretty embarrassing situation soon, but don’t worry. There are ten Canadian provinces you can run to if worst comes to worst. I hear Saskatchewan is nice this time of year. Aquarius: Let me fill you in on a little secret. My personal lucky number is eleven, and I want to share its power with you this week. Watch eleven episodes of your favorite television program for maximum luck. If you don’t have a TV, then I’m sorry and I just can’t help you. Pisces: As the 12th zodiac sign in the cycle, I was disappointed to learn that your birthday does not fall in the 12th month of the year. I mean, whoever designed this system needs to make a few adjustments, am I right? You should also try to be more assertive with your opinions. Just roll with it.

Round Three: To save money (Again, you say? Yes, because you never seem to do it quite right)

Danielle Davis Office Manager

1. Stop going out all the damn time. Simple enough, right? Try it, and I promise it will work wonders for whatever it is you carry your money around in. 2. Get a job. Remember that last issue? Check it out and read some of my tips on how to get a job. If anything, I’m helpful. 3. Find fun things to do with your significant other that don’t require loads of money. After all, quality time spent together is more valuable than anything you could waste your money on. 4. Walk, bike, skateboard... hell, do anything but drive. Ttrust me, nothing depletes your bank account like that gas tank. 5. Last, but certainly not least: DON’T BLOW YOUR REFUND. Have a little self-control, people. Get what you need first and save some of that other stuff for later.
