The OSU Horse Center, located on Walnut Boulevard, is one of the Living Laboratory facilities facing financial difficulties. Changes due to the current situation will likely include finding new managers for these facilities.

Ed Ray, president of Oregon State University, announced in an email yesterday that the university will resume promoting the wearing of black attire to the Oct. 20 and Nov. 17 football games. This announcement came after university officials had announced Monday their intention to abandon a campaign to wear black to two football games. Since then, several news outlets have covered the story originally by The Daily Barometer and the issue has garnered both regional and national attention. “This simple act [of wearing black attire] sends a profound message: that we are united as a community and that those who engage in behavior that is hurtful to others will not deter us from taking this next step in appropriately living our values,” Ray said in his email. Ray apologized for not engaging in the discussion about abandoning the campaign sooner. He also highlighted the history of the 2007 blackout incident and said the university knows that real progress had been made toward creating a more inclusive university. However, it is not entirely clear why the university is suddenly reversing its decision. “Ed Ray felt it was time to change the conversation and focus on what OSU is all about,” said Steve Clark, vice president for university marketing and relations. “We changed the focus on what it means to be a safe university that respects diversity and inclusion.” Student reaction Student leaders for the most part appear to be pleased with the university’s current stance. “We think the university is moving in the right direction to address the issue,” said Amelia Harris, president of the Associated Students of OSU. “It is important that we come together as a community. We are happy the university is now engaged and they want to talk about it.” Anderson DuBoise, external coordinator of the Black Cultural Center, said students from the Black Cultural Center and the other cultural centers were currently working on an event for the Friday before the first blackout game. He said the event would include a presentation and discussion on the history of blackface and minstrel shows in the United States, and would also include presentations on what to wear to the game and what proper attire is. “The issue before was there was no real talk about keeping what happened [in 2007] from happening again,” DuBoise said. “People in the community are excited about the blackout but they are also afraid that what happened in the past could happen again.” Ray McGuinness, who started a Facebook group to continue to encourage students to wear black to the Oct. 20 game, was also happy about President Ray’s statement. “We believe we’re mature enough; we can come together to make this a positive event for everyone,” McGuinness said. “It’s up to us as students and fans to make sure we don’t ruin it again for another five years.” About 1,000 users already say they’re attending the Facebook event, “Stand United – Wear black to Reser vs. Utah.” Clark said the university will have a meeting tomorrow afternoon with student leaders and others throughout the university to discuss further plans to educate the campus and plan on further steps to take before the blackout on Oct. 20. The university initially abandoned its campaign on Monday after several See BLACKOUT | page 2

Concourse Gallery includes prints from revered Mexican artists By Alice Marshall The Daily Barometer

The Memorial Union Concourse Gallery is currently exhibiting the work of three talented printmakers from Mexico. Mizraim Cárdenas, Guadalupe Anaya, and Rosenda Aguilar use a variety of printmaking techniques from chine-collé to color block prints and mezzotint, a form of dry point in which scratching and hatch marks develop shadow and depth. The result is a transformation of the gallery to create a dynamic and alluring space. OSU Craft Center Manager Susan Bourque attributes the success of the exhibit to the work of OSU student Nicole Hernandez Lopez. “[Hernandez-Lopez] kept on top of the dates for the exhibit and made an effort to keep costs low, resulting in the exhibit showing on campus,” Bourque said. With the styles varied and

unique between each of the artists, the overall essence of the exhibit is strongly influenced by the artists’ Mexican heritage. Mizraim Cárdenas is an internationally known printmaker and painter who is originally from Morelia, a city in central Mexico. The fine detail work that can be seen in his dynamic block prints shows his fastidiousness, while his color and composition choices emphasize a finesse only achievable through strong discipline and, in the case of Cárdenas, the treasured guidance of a master printer from Mexico — Alfredo Zalce. Julie Green, painting professor in the art department, took advantage of the teaching opportunities that the pieces had to offer. During a painting class field trip, she made certain to bring attention to the way Cárdenas uses unexpected earth tones to sharpen yellows as well as enliven stirring compositions. One can’t help feeling disquieted as a narrative reveals itself before them and fishermen are pitched from their capsizing

BLACKOUT n Continued from page 2 student leaders, most notably ASOSU, brought forward concerns that there had not been enough education on how to act appropriately or acknowledgement of what had happened in 2007. Background On Oct. 5, 2007, the Barometer published a photo illustration that depicted a student wearing black body and face paint that looked eerily similar to the blackface worn by white minstrel performers of the 19th and early 20th centuries. Many students at the time felt offended by the photo, as well as the diagram that instructed students to paint their faces black. At the Oct. 6, 2007 game, there were reports of students

Thursday, Oct. 11 boat, stylized animals infiltrate the frame and figures glow with vibrancy and contrast in his large, color block prints. Guadalupe Anaya graduated from Escuela Popular de Bellas Artes of the Universidad Michoacana de San Nicolás de Hidalgo in Mexico. As a printmaker, sculptor and painter, the body of work which she is currently exhibiting exemplifies her pride in Mexican culture. Anaya displays a series of twenty two prints of a version of Loteria, a lottery-type game in which illustrated cards are matched with those called out. Often times the announcer imbeds the title of the card into a riddle. Of the twenty-two pieces, “La Araña,” meaning “the spider” in Spanish, is particularly captivating. By mezzotint, Anaya develops mysterious shadows and macabre imagery, which is all too appropriate for the approach of Halloween. Her works collectively exemplify her varied skills as a printmaker and artist as well as her pride in Mexican culture. According to Rosenda

In the following weeks, there were protests against the Barometer by students who felt the newspaper had instigated the racially insensitive actions taken by some students. The newspaper ran an apology on Oct. 26, 2007 in response to the outcry against the photo and that the staff did not publish a column about it until a couple of weeks after. While Oct. 20 is still a couple of weeks away, fans are looking forward to the game and supporting their Beavers while wearing black. “No matter what color we’re wearing,” McGuinness said, “we all need to get out there and support our football team.” Don Iler, editor-in-chief

Aguilar, from a young age she felt the need to create art, which revealed the simple beauty and emotion in everyday life. The printmaker and sculptor’s passion for utilizing color and motion is evident in her three prints displayed in the Concourse. With an air of surrealism, Aguilar creates dynamic and interesting prints with layered colors and forms while preserving the all-encompassing theme of pride for the Mexican culture. Her monotype print titled “Por la Paz (for peace)” appears to celebrate and pay tribute to her heritage. Aguilar’s work, and that of Anaya and Cárdenas, has been displayed since Sept. 17 and will be until Oct. 24. Passersby of the MU are encouraged to take a look at the Mexican prints and the imagery that, according to Bourque, is as rich as the culture they come from. “We are extremely pleased to have this exhibit,” Bourque said. “We’re thrilled with the stunning work and we love bringing in works from other countries.” Alice Marshall, arts reporter news@dailybarometer.com

Providing great service, University Cuts turns small talk to conversation

Yeas & Nays I

ea to wearing black. Yea to wearing orange. Nay to making a stupid decision. Yea to eventually making the right one, President Ray. Yea to wearing appropriate attire to upcoming sporting events. Nay to those who may not. If you do, we will find you and ruin you. You are an embarrassment to our university. Yea to the power of the press. Sometimes we forget that all these long hours, broken relationships and failing grades eventually pay off and change the conversation in our own corner of the world. Yea to running into co-workers at Impulse. Yea to running into co-workers at Clods. Nay to running into the police on your walk home. We live in a police state. Yea to the Oakland A’s. Nay to sketchy elevators. The one in Snell Hall, in the words of Admiral Ackbar, is a trap. Yea to being 3-0. Go Beavs! Nay to brotanks in the office. The sleeves were there for a reason. Yea to being required to take HHS231. We never took a health class in high school or junior high and it’s not like we’re adults who can take care of ourselves. Nay to having your HHS231 instructor say multiple times that college is a stressful situation. Listen children, if you think college is stressful, you need to grow up. Sitting in a safe, warm classroom, with no immediate danger around you, leisurely learning about whatever, isn’t stressful. Quit your complaining; you are the reason our country is failing. Yea to Big Bird. Nay to Big Bird still trending on Twitter long after the debates were over. Yea to Lt. Dan Choi speaking at OSU this week. Nay to gay marriage still being against the constitution in Oregon. We’re glad that instead this election we are voting on more substantive issues like legalizing pot and casinos. Yea to fedoras in the office. Nay to that one one-night-stand you had trying to chat with you on Facebook. We kind of hoped you had forgotten about us already. Unfriending now… Yea to safe sex. Nay to those condescending talks you get from adults every now and then on campus. We’re glad you are so great and important and old. Now stop treating us like children. Yea to world peace. Nay to a potential war brewing between Turkey and Syria. It looks downright dangerous there. Yea to dancing. Nay to hantavirus. Totally ruining winter break plans to visit Yosemite. Yea to bowling. Especially bowling with SOL. Real nice people. Yea to another week down. Go do something silly.

would like to begin by saying that this wasn’t the article that I was planning on writing this week. I mention that to convey how impressed I was with my experience at University Cuts. Like most guys, I really do not put much thought into my haircuts — just making sure it looks reasonably neat. This Thursday, I noticed my hair was reaching dirty hippy levels of shaggy, and it was time for a trim. Not having a regular stylist, I usually just throw myself at Supercuts, give them money, close my eyes and hope for the best. That was up until I decided to give University Cuts a try. I am a quiet guy who is fairly reserved around people I do not know well. I usually dread the awkward small talk that is an unwritten requirement when getting a haircut. Pretending to be interested in the safe comments about the weather — or other bits of equally inane babble — is one of the things I

Finn Van Order

The Daily Barometer dislike most about getting my haircut. However, Jen was different. She was a genuinely interesting person. I didn’t feel like we were talking because it would be even more awkward not to. Instead, I actually enjoyed listening to her. This was literally the first time I ever had a barbershop conversation that I didn’t desperately want to end. Most of you are probably like me: You have busy class schedules, work and other extracurricular responsibilities. After a long day on campus, going across town for a haircut is the last thing that you want to do. University Cuts’ location by the food court in the Memorial Union is initially what attracted me to the business. Jen was not only friendly and easy to talk to, she was also very professional and left

me feeling extremely satisfied with my new ‘do. Jen began cutting hair up in Portland, where she studied at Beau Monde College of Hair Design. After moving back to Corvallis, Jen worked with her father at Mel’s Barbershop in downtown Corvallis. Jen now owns and operates University Cuts while her husband manages Mel’s. After talking with her I couldn’t help but be impressed. Jen and her husband not only find time to give out fantastic haircuts, but they also raise four children. Being a member of a large family, I can tell you that is hard work. Jen told me it is the students that really interested her in the MU location. Jen and her husband exemplify the local business focus that all Corvallis natives appreciate. University Cuts has only been at the MU since last January, but they are still doing fantastic business. It is no wonder,

with cuts being only $12, and $9 on Tuesdays, and every session ending with a complimentary hot-lather neck shave and shoulder massage, that this really was the best haircut experience I have ever had. For you ladies out there, Jen doesn’t just cut men’s hair. Really, the only thing Jen doesn’t do is color — but since I am only 20, I hope to not have to dye my hair for at least another 30 years. University Cuts advertises itself as offering the best taper fades, line ups, ROTC cuts and more. I encourage everyone to go and give University Cuts a try the next time they find themselves in between classes and in need of a trim. t

Hipsters: Counter-cultural movement or mythical creatures?

I

’ve never met a hipster in person. It makes me feel ridiculously old to say this, but I think they might have been after my time. There weren’t any “hipster” cliques in my high school, just the usual slackers, goths, stoners, jocks, etc. But even though I’ve never met one or seen one in person — they’re like mythical creatures to me — I still know what the stereotype is, thanks to movies, television and books. What I’ve learned about hipsters is this: they wear skinny jeans, blazers, scarves, flat caps and heavy black plastic glasses (lenses optional) and are really, really pretentious. Hipsters are all about the irony. Irony as a fashion statement. Irony as a political statement. Irony, irony, irony. Remember that old song by Alanis Morissette, where she defined irony as a “black fly in your Chardonnay?” Irony is, according to the MerriamWebster dictionary, “the use of words to express something other than and especially the opposite of the literal meaning,” and is also known as “verbal sarcasm.” You know what sarcasm is, right? It’s definitely not flies in wine. It’s saying that you want some flies in your wine because that would be totally awesome. You can speak sarcastically, and write sarcastically, and gesture sarcastically, but can you wear clothes sarcastically? Can you vote sarcastically (without shooting yourself

Irene Drage

The Daily Barometer in the foot)? Despite the “mythical creature” status of the group in question, hipster, as a word, is definitely in common use today, and seems to have become a synonym for “d-bag.” They’re unanimously despised by everyone I’ve ever come across, and I’ve never met anyone who will voluntarily self-identify as one. So, where, then, do they come from? Are they actually mythical creatures, dreamt up by some screenwriter somewhere? Can we compare them to zombies — should we start asking if people have their hipster apocalypse plans ready? The Internet, at least, thinks hipsters exist. (Then again, the Internet is pretty darn sure zombies exist too, so you should probably take it with a grain of salt.) Urbandictionary.com calls ‘hipsterism’ a state of mind and a counter-culture movement and states that hipsters “reject the culturallyignorant attitudes of mainstream consumers.” In fact, the Urban Dictionary entry for hipster is long enough to be an entire Wikipedia entry by itself. The length and defensive tone implies that it might have been written by an actual hipster — or an Internet-based Artificial Intelligence pretending to be one.

But back to the counter-cultural movement thing. Remember the hippies? (Well, you might not remember them personally, but I know you know what they are.) They’re still around today. From what I can tell, and with the exception of hippies having an excess of love and less sarcasm, they’re pretty much exactly the same thing as hipsters. As a bonus, hippies actually exist. If in fact there are actual real hipsters out there reading this and getting mortally offended, or if anyone else who’s taking offense to me making fun of the way a select group of people dress and act — take a moment and try to take the concept of hipster seriously. Irony as a way of life is just ridiculous. And I know ridiculous. I’m the chick with the mohawk and all the piercings and tattoos. So if you love your scarves, skinny jeans, blazers, flat caps, or any combination thereof as much as I love my ‘hawk, and feel like your clothing choices make you “you” as much as I feel my piercings and tats make me “me,” then more power to you, man. But that doesn’t change this fact: There is no excuse for lensless glasses. You look ridiculous. Stop it. t

Letter to the Editor Biking in Corvallis

Traffic lights can be triggered by bike tires It’s been great to see the increase in the number of people commuting to campus on bicycle over the last year. I’ve noticed that some folks aren’t aware of how the lights work in town. To avoid potential frustrations of waiting for a light to turn that just won’t, keep in mind that except for downtown, all traffic lights are activated by electrical wires on the pavement that detect metallic objects over them. If there’s a hulking motorized contraption waiting at the same light, no sweat. But if you’re the first or only one there and you’re on a bike, look for the narrow black strips in the bike lane and put as much of your bike over it as possible. Sometimes having a wheel on top of a wire is enough to get the signal to change. Some intersections lose their sensitivity over time, but a call to the city bike coordinator usually results in a quick fix. Andrew Gray Assistant Professor Forest Ecosystems and Society

Washinton State: Keys to the game • WSU passing offense: The Cougars are averaging 333 yards per game through the air, which is good for 12th in the nation. If Mike Leach’s pass-happy offense can get some early yardage through the air they could challenge Oregon State’s pass defense that has been shaky as of late. • Marquess Wilson: Wilson, part of WSU’s high powered passing attack, will need another big game Saturday for Washington State to pull off the upset.

Wilson has five touchdowns in the first five games for the Cougs, but hasn’t faced cornerbacks as talented as the duo of Rashaad Reynolds and Jordan Poyer for OSU. • Washington State run defense: WSU is coming off of a blowout loss to Oregon, in which they allowed 300 yards on the ground, and is facing a Beaver team that finally got the running game going last week with 180 yards.

Oregon State: Keys to the game • Oregon State pass defense: The Beaver defense has allowed 782 yards through the air in the last two games combined. Facing the No. 12 passing offense in the nation could be their toughest test yet. Something has to give in this matchup. • OSU cornerbacks: Jordan Poyer is arguably OSU’s best player and will be matched up against one of the premier wide receivers in the nation in Wilson for most of the game. Rashaad Reynolds has played at a dif

ferent level this year, and looks like an elite guy in the conference. If the OSU cornerbacks can handle the WSU wide receivers they should come out on top. • Sean Mannion: Mannion is coming off of a career high 433 yards passing and has looked like an elite quarterback all year. The Washington State offense is allowing 32.6 points per game, but held Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota to only 169 yards through the air. Mannion will need to continue his dominance to keep OSU perfect in the loss column.

After long hiatus, Beavers return home n

OSU back at Reser to face Cougars, must contain Wilson, high-powered passing attack By Warner Strausbaugh The Daily Barometer

After a bye week and two road games, the Beavers finally return to the confines of Reser Stadium for their first home game in a month. No. 14 Oregon State (3-0, 2-0 Pac12) enters Saturday’s game at 3 p.m. against Washington State as twotouchdown favorites. The fact the Beavers are finally heavily favored to win is not getting to their heads. “They want to do what we’ve been doing to other teams — pull out the rug from [underneath],” said redshirt freshman running back Storm Woods. “I still think we feel like we’re the underdog, that’s how we go into every game. We just go hard, we don’t want to get complacent.” Coach Mike Riley does not expect players to begin to feel overconfident in themselves and go into the game anticipating to coast to victory. “There’s no reason whatsoever to [overlook Washington State], but we talked about respecting every opponent by preparing,” Riley said. “The time you put in is the respect that you show. Guys are working hard at what they’re doing and everybody knows it’s going to be a hard, hard game.” This Oregon State team truly looks to be the complete opposite of where they were a year ago. The transition to becoming the 3-0 team they are now began well before the home opener against Wisconsin. “It started in the offseason,” said senior cornerback Jordan Poyer. “I think last year we grew a lot from it, being 3-9. … We definitely felt like we should have been better and

we learned from it, just learned to become a team and play as one. That’s what we’ve been doing and that’s what we’re going to keep doing.” Washington State (2-3, 0-2) has had their struggles, but one area of strength the Cougars have is in special teams. “We’re going to see the best special teams unit that we’ve faced so far this year,” Riley said. “They’re good and they’re well coached on special teams.” Kicker Andrew Furney is 7-for-9 this year in field goals, including a 60-yard boot on a Sept. 8 game against Eastern Washington. Not to mention, they returned a 92-yard kickoff for a touchdown in the first half of last week’s game against Oregon – a game where Washington State only trailed the Ducks by four points at halftime, before Oregon orchestrated their usual second-half blowout. Even at a 2-3 record, the WSU offense is not one to question. Washington State’s offense ranks second in the Pac-12 in passing, sandwiched between OSU’s previous two opponents – Arizona (1st) and UCLA (3rd). “They obviously can throw the ball,” Riley said. “They complete passes and they move the ball. Their totals are very good against good [teams]. It’s going to be one of those games we’re going to have to be very sound, good pass rush.” Just under one-third of those passing numbers for the Cougars belong to junior wide receiver Marquess Wilson. A Second Team All-Pac-12 selection in 2011, Wilson’s 30 catches, 499 yards and five touchdowns have been causing nightmares for opposing defensive coordinators. Poyer has done his homework on Wilson and feels confident in how to

There has been a lot to be happy about for the Beavers, currently 3-0. Brandin Cooks (7), who has 21 receptions, 405 yards and two touchdowns in 2012, will look to exploit a poor Washington State defense on Saturday. stop him. “We’ve just got to take away the deep ball from him,” Poyer said. “I’ve seen some film on him and it just seems like the corners he’s gone against — they’re playing scared. It’s just a simple thing, all he’s running is a post, which is an easy route to guard if you’re just staying on top and you know what to expect. I’m not going to take anything away from him because he’s making plays, but I just feel like he’s nothing we haven’t seen.” The offense of the Cougars has been the positive in 2012. It isn’t the same story for the defense.

Washington State ranks 11th in total defense in the conference, and it has been its biggest flaw in the two conference losses the team has suffered against Oregon and Colorado, with an average of 43 points allowed in the two games. On a poor defense, the lone bright spot is senior linebacker Travis Long, who is currently tied for third in the nation in sacks with 6.5. “I think he’s one of the best defensive players in the conference,” Riley said. “We’ve seen him for a long time now, and he’s really an effort guy with good ability.” The roles have been reversed.

Oregon State is no longer trying for an upset bid. It is now the Beavers with the target on their back and Washington State coming in to Reser with the opportunity to play spoiler. But throwing aside all the statistics, rankings and the point spread, the Beavers are only focused on the task at hand: winning. “We’re still hungry,” Reynolds said. “I don’t care what we’re ranked, we don’t care about that. We’re just worried about winning games. Right now we’re 0-0.” Warner Strausbaugh

‘Abortion ship’ leaves Moroccan port, group says A ship filled with activists, who say they are there to help women receive abortions, was escorted out of the Moroccan port of Smir after the government initially blocked the harbor and prevented residents from accessing the vessel. Abortion is illegal in Morocco, and the country’s Health Ministry said in a statement that it had not authorized the vessel’s visit or any procedures by nonresident doctors. The “abortion ship” is run by Women on Waves, which was founded in 1999 by a Dutch doctor to provide abortions to women in countries where the practice is illegal. The Women on Waves ship takes women into international waters to perform the abortions, which are legal under

Dutch law, until 6.5 weeks into the pregnancy. But authorities in the predominantly Muslim country seemed to effectively block the activists efforts on Thursday. “The ship was searched, and the captains were informed that they had to leave the harbor,” Women on Waves said in a statement. “When asked the reason why, they were informed that although no laws were broken, the ship had to leave Smir.” The ship was then “escorted from the harbor by the navy,” though plans to “stay near Morocco” and “strategize their next move.” “I will not be practicing as a gynecologist in Morocco,” said Gunilla Kleiverda, a Women on Waves gynecologist aboard the vessel.

“We are not going to perform any abortions within Morocco. We are sailing out with women to international waters where in the international sea the Dutch law applies,” she said. A female member of the group told CNN that she and a number of other demonstrators had been in front of the marina in Smir. She said there was a big, aggressive protest taking place and police were present. She said police said she was “not authorized” to be there. “I am not going to be intimidated by them,” she told CNN before the phone line dropped. Women on Waves also advocates the use of a drug called misoprostol, which it says is available legally in Morocco,

to perform abortions up to 12 weeks after conception. The group says it is establishing a phone hotline in Morocco for women to get information on how to perform the abortions at home. Kleiverda said Moroccan women need access to safe abortions. About 90 women die from illegal abortions in the country every year, she said. The ship has previously taken the campaign to Ireland, Poland, Portugal and Spain, but this is its first attempt to offer abortions in an Islamic country. Women on Waves said on its website that it is looking into alternatives to get the ship into port in Morocco after the Smir harbor was blocked. —CNN

JOEY PANTS

an inspirational evening about mental dis-ease

ISTANBUL — The U.N. Security Council on Thursday condemned Syria’s shelling of a border town in Turkey and appealed for restraint from both countries. “The members of the Security Council underscored that this incident highlighted the grave impact the crisis in Syria has on the security of its neighbors and on regional peace and security,” said Gert Rosenthal, ambassador from Guatemala, speaking in his role as council president. The shelling of the Turkish town of Akcakale resulted in the deaths of five civilians — all of them women and children — and a number of injuries, Rosenthal said. “The members of the council demanded that such violations of international law stop immediately and are not repeated,” he continued, calling for Syria to respect Turkey’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. The announcement at the world body in New York came as Turkey, retaliating for Wednesday’s incident, shelled a Syrian military position for a second consecutive day and authorized its military forces to venture beyond its borders.

Meanwhile, Syria’s ambassador to the United Nations urged Turkey to exercise restraint. Syria “is not seeking any escalation with any of its neighbors, including Turkey,” Bashar Ja’afari told reporters after expressing his government’s “deepest condolences” over the shelling. But Ja’afari also called on Turkey to stop armed insurgents from crossing its border with Syria and to prevent media coverage of opposition groups operating from its territory. “Syria bases its behavior with neighboring countries to the rules of good neighborliness and respect for national sovereignties of states, and it invites, in return, those states to respect the national sovereignty of Syria, and to cooperate in border control and prevention of the infiltration of insurgents and terrorists, according to what Syria has always done,” Ja’afari said in a letter given to U.N. officials. Also Thursday, the staterun Syrian Arab News Agency reported that authorities had “foiled an infiltration attempt from Turkish Territories into Kherbet al-Jouz town in Idlib province and killed several

of them, including gunmen from non-Syrian nationalities. State-run Syria TV identified one of the dead as a “Turkish terrorist named Hamza Mohammed Akbar.” The developments underscore fears that Syria’s civil war could ignite a wider regional conflict. Turkish forces fired on Syrian government targets in retaliation for the artillery fire, and Turkey’s parliament, meeting in emergency session, gave the government permission to deploy its soldiers to foreign countries, a semiofficial news agency said. “Turkey has no interest in a war with Syria,” Ibrahim Kalin, foreign policy adviser to Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, said Thursday in a posting on Twitter. “But Turkey is capable of protecting its borders and will retaliate when necessary.” In the letter presented Thursday to U.N. officials, Syria said the incident was under investigation and expressed “deepest condolences” for the victims. Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Besir Atalay said Syria had accepted responsibility for Wednesday’s shelling.

“Syria accepts that they did it and says it will not happen again,” Atalay said. Despite the reported apology, Turkish forces for the second day Thursday shelled Syrian military sites in Tal Abyad, about 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) from the Turkish border, the opposition Local Coordination Committees (LCC) of Syria reported. The Syrian government said at least two of its military officers were wounded by Turkish artillery fire. Rebels told CNN that 13 Syrian troops were killed and more wounded and that the artillery fire forced the Syrians to pull back from their border posts. In the resolution authorizing the deployment of troops, Turkish officials said circumstances have “reached a point that constitutes serious threat and risk to our national security. Therefore, it has become necessary to be able to respond to further risks and threats in a timely and immediate manner.” The resolution, approved 320-129, gives the prime minister the power to decide when and where troops might be deployed for up to a year. —CNN

Pat Summitt, the all-time winningest major college basketball coach, says in an affidavit filed Thursday that she felt forced out as head coach of the Tennessee women’s team after her diagnosis with early-onset Alzheimer’s In April, the coach announced her on-court retirement eight months after revealing her diagnosis. “I just felt like it was the time to step down,� Summitt said at her retirement. “It’s never a good time, but you have to find a time you think is the right time.� But according to an affidavit she filed in conjunction with a lawsuit filed by a friend and former colleague against the university and its athletics director, the legendary coach didn’t make the decision to step down on her own. In her affidavit, Summitt described a meeting in March with athletic director Dave Hart, in which she said she was told she would no longer be coach after 38 seasons. Summit wrote

in her affidavit that she had wanted to make that decision herself. “This was very surprising to me and very hurtful,� Summitt wrote in her affidavit. Summitt’s statement also said that Hart met again with her and he “indicated that I misinterpreted what he said.� Summitt’s affidavit came in a lawsuit filed by a former media relations director for women’s sports, Debby Jennings. Jennings is suing the school for age and gender discrimination and for retaliation. Jennings said in her lawsuit that she wrote an e-mail to Hart the day after his initial meeting with Summitt, with Jennings saying in the e-mail that she opposed the decision regarding Summitt and considered it discriminatory. Jennings said Hart retaliated against her two months later by giving her the option to resign, retire or be fired. —CNN

NHL cancels upcoming games As a result of its ongoing player lockout, the National Hockey League is canceling regular-season games through October 24, the league announced Thursday. The season was scheduled to start October 11, but recent meetings between representatives for the players union and the NHL have failed to produce a collective bargaining agreement. “If the owners truly cared about the game and the fans, they would lift the lockout and allow the season to begin on time while negotiations continue,� said Don Fehr, the executive director of the players’ union. “A lockout should be the last resort in bargaining, not the strategy of first resort. For nearly 20 years, the owners have elected to lock out the players in an effort to secure massive concessions.� The cancellation wiped out 82 games from the schedule, and comes one week after the league called off preseason games. NHL.com reported Tuesday that NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly said the players and owners had lost $100 million due to the cancellation of the preseason. —CNN

OSU women’s soccer needs big weekend n

Wins in weekend series with UCLA, USC crucial to avoid continuing losing streak By Grady Garrett The Daily Barometer

The last time the Oregon State women’s soccer team lost three games in a row, head coach Linus Rhode had just inherited a program that hadn’t reached the postseason in 15 years. That came in 2008, the year the Beavers won just one conference game. In the three years since, the Beavers have found a way to avoid lengthy skids — and have gone on to make the NCAA Tournament each of those years. This weekend will offer the first glimpse at how the 2012 Beavers bounce back from adversity. Oregon State (9-3, 1-2 Pac12), unranked for only the second time since the season began, will host the Los Angeles schools — beginning with USC today at 1 p.m. at Paul Lorenz Field — a week after suffering two eyeopening defeats in the Bay Area. All week, the theme has been: focus. In fact, head coach Linus Rhode closed Wednesday’s practice to the media so there would be no distractions for his team as they prepared for the Trojans and No. 3 UCLA. If player’s quotes from the beginning of the week are an indication, they realize how important this weekend is in terms of righting the ship and making a run at four consecutive postseason appearances. “I think [it] kind of lights a fire under our butts,� said junior defender Morgan Kennedy. “It gives us moti-

FBI finally makes it to Benghazi, Libya, three weeks after attack Three weeks after four Americans were killed in an attack on the U.S. Consulate in eastern Libya, an FBI team arrived at the site as the investigation continued in other places, too, a Pentagon spokesman said Thursday. “You should not assume that all we could do or have been doing is restricted solely to Benghazi,” Attorney General Eric Holder told reporters in Washington. “There are a variety of other places in country and outside the country where relevant things could be done and have been done. This is a matter that’s been under active

investigation almost since the time of the incident and I’m satisfied with the progress that we have made.” Holder said the focus of the Justice Department was “to solve this matter, to hold people accountable. So that’s what we will do.” Pentagon spokesman George Little said Thursday that a U.S. military support mission accompanied the FBI team, which was in Benghazi “for a number of hours” before it left the city. “We have not been sitting around waiting, you know, for information to come to us,”

Little said, adding that U.S. investigators were “actively chasing leads in various ways.” U.S. Special Operations forces were in Libya and nearby countries aiding in the collection of intelligence regarding the assault, a U.S. military official told CNN Thursday. The official declined to be identified due to the sensitive nature of the information. The September 11 consulate attack killed U.S. Ambassador to Libya J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans. The incident heightened global scrutiny of the North African nation and sparked debate

over whether the Obama administration has been forthcoming about the incident. Officials said the military presence was an indication of ongoing security concerns in the region. Security concerns at the site had led the FBI to delay for more than three weeks its visit to Benghazi. FBI and military officials had cited the need for proper military protection in the event of another attack. Little described the security team accompanying the FBI as a “small footprint of military personnel.” —CNN
