Iranian filmakers portray UM Cell phone dead Greek system in negative light zones plague campus By AMINA AL SHERIF firstname.lastname@example.org
In August, Foreign Policy profiled a 2010 Iranian documentary produced by Press TV Documentaries for online distribution called “Behind Campus Walls” in order to begin conversations about underlying problems in Greek organizations across American campuses. Said to greatly resemble Iranian propaganda, the documentary presents a decidedly negative view of the United States. After filming an episode in which a student in San Francisco purchased a fake ID in order to buy alcohol, Press TV began

to follow campus police at The University of Mississippi, said to be hired to fight “stains on college life.” The TV crew then scans the houses on Fraternity Row, stating that it is “every student’s dream to be admitted into one of these majestic houses,” where “behind the fraternity walls, there are no rules.” The report highlights the access to alcohol and parties within the fraternity and sorority system, and Foreign Policy states that the documentary presents the Greek system “like Freemasonry with Natty Light and Lacoste Pastels, complete with its own initiation rules and secret handshakes.”
The TV crew then rides around campus with a group of Ole Miss students on a rush night, in which one of the students who is simply identified as Clay states that Greek-affiliated students are “homophobic super Republicans.” However, perception does not always represent reality, according to Ruben Ruiz, president of the university’s Alpha Gamma chapter of Chi Psi Fraternity. “As a fraternity, we understand the intrinsic value of our members,” Ruiz said. “We actively take a stance against hazing and unnecessary endangerment of See GREEK, PAGE 4

Cellular and wireless services have long been issues on campus, and while problems remain, steps have been taken to improve service. Particular spots of poor quality or even no service at all on campus have been noted by students. “Every time I leave campus to go back to my apartment, my service gets noticeably better,” said Moira Anthony, senior broadcast journalism major. “You would think it would be the other way around, right?” However, two known causes of so-called “dead zones” are hilly

terrain and dense foliage, two things Oxford and The University of Mississippi have aplenty. Dead zones are not uncommon for most cell carriers, but they often seem out of place on a university campus, where students and staff are constantly talking, texting and emailing one another using wireless 3G and 4G data, provided by their phone companies at no small cost. “Internet access is terrible in Lewis, which is really unfortunate for science majors who have to take a lot of physics classes,” said Olivia Cooper, junior chemical engineering major.

Updated assessment of al-Qaeda 2013 By VINOD KANNUTHURAI firstname.lastname@example.org
PATRICIA THOMPSON director and faculty adviser
Last week, terrorists associated with the Islamic fundamentalist group al-Shabaab attacked the Westgate shopping mall in Nairobi, Kenya, killing more than 60 civilians and injuring nearly 200. Al-Shabaab, formally allied with al-Qaida, holds much of the territory of Somalia, a country bordering Kenya to the east that has had decades of dysfunctional government. Al-Shabaab militants reportedly attacked the Kenyan mall in order to take revenge upon Kenyan military forces in Somalia, which have assisted in transferring control of key Somalian cities from al-Shabaab to the young Somalian government. Confusion regarding the identity of al-Shabaab and its affiliation with al-Qaida indicates a need to evaluate the present condition of al-Qaida and its allied Islamic fundamentalist groups across the globe. First, defining what constitutes “al-Qaida” is prudent in 2013. In his testimony before the House of Representatives Subcommittee on Terrorism, Nonproliferation and Trade, Seth Jones of the RAND Corporation divides al-Qaida into four tiers: al-Qaida central, affiliated groups, allied groups and inspired networks. Jones defines the role of al-Qaida central as resolving disputes between subsidiary al-Qaida groups and providing a degree of strate-

gic guidance to these groups. Affiliated groups, such as alShabaab in Somalia or the alNusrah Front in Syria, have conducted operations mostly within their region but have also sworn fealty to al-Qaida central. Neither allied groups nor inspired networks have sworn loyalty to al-Qaida central, although allied groups have worked with al-Qaida central for funding and training, and inspired networks have little formal interaction with al-Qaida central but share similar ideologies. With the understanding that alQaida can be subdivided into four different tiers consisting of many different organizations across the world, recognizing the difficulty of pinning a central set of goals to al-Qaida becomes easier. One central belief of all four types of groups seems to be a belief that an Islamic regime, based on strict application of Sharia law, is the most desirable form of government. However, the degree to which groups intend to apply this belief differs among organizations.For example, al-Qaida central espouses a desire to apply a central Islamic government to a wide region of North Africa, the Middle East and Asia to unite them by an Islamic empire as they were more than a thousand years ago, while al-Shabaab focuses on establishing an Islamic government within Somalia itself. A second belief of al-Qaida and affiliated groups is a willingness to savagely attack both

Muslims and non-Muslims who stand in the way of achieving Islamic governments across the world. This savageness entails the Taliban’s guerrilla warfare in Afghanistan, al-Qaida’s attack against the World Trade Center, the attack of the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi and now al-Shabaab’s attack on the Westgate Mall in Nairobi, Kenya, to name only a few of the many attacks launched by al-Qaida groups. Then what are some solutions for the United States in dealing with a globally dispersed alQaida threat? First, the United States has to establish stronger security partnerships concerning this threat with countries around the world. This holds especially true on the African continent with credible al-Qaida-affiliated threats in Algeria, Kenya, Libya, Mali, Nigeria, Somalia and Tunisia, to name just a few examples. In addition, the United States must continue to provide substantive support to countries such as France who are willing to put boots on the ground against Islamic groups. Second, U.S. policymakers must be willing to keep all precision options against al-Qaida groups on the table, especially drone strikes. Although drone strikes are unpopular in the sphere of public opinion, they have proven critical in eliminating key al-Qaida officials, especially in Pakistan and Yemen. Although U.S. policymakers must remain sensitive to the wish-

es of the countries in which these strikes are performed, American officials cannot weigh their wishes over strategic interests. U.S. policymakers must remain pragmatic and continue to utilize drone strikes where effective in taking out key militants. Third, the United States must continue to engage the Muslim community around the world, the vast majority of which does not support the Islamic fundamentalism of al-Qaida and its affiliated groups. For example, St. Paul Police Chief Thomas Smith notes that interactions between police officials and the large Somali community in the Twin Cities have prevented Somali youth in Minnesota from traveling with other U.S. citizens of Somali descent who have joined al-Shabaab in Somalia. Although these are not instant solutions, these are applications that fit the scope of Islamic fundamentalist groups like al-Qaida: They are long-standing threats that will take decades to overcome. With strength of will by the United States and cooperation from those in the international community, Islamic fundamentalist groups, such as al-Qaida, can become less and less appealing for young men and women around the world to join in the years to come. That’s a more realistic goal for which to strive than some outright elimination of these groups. Vinod Kannuthurai is a public policy leadership major from Hazlehurst.

’Til death do us part By CORY FARRAEZ email@example.com
With the Affordable Care Act exchanges set to begin tomorrow, much has been made about the 1,990-page bill passed in 2010. Recently, one of my colleagues advocated for the effectiveness of the act, or why the change is needed. The gentleman used emotion instead of his economics degree. His real concern was cost, not his injury. Yet questions still remain, and Republicans have yet to answer them: why the medical system is broken, and how to lower costs while increasing standard of care. The current act does neither. Generally, I haven’t seen much argument about a more fundamental question: whether government is best suited to run, or even slightly manage, an industry comprising one-third of our entire economy. Or are the benefits of slightly lower forced costs worth the detriment of lower standard of care? No “U.S. official” knows how to price goods and services within the market, much less respond to rapidly changing customer demands, especially if health care “rights” and equality of access are your concern. We’ve seen a series of government actions to take control of the health care industry since the early 20th century, including Clinton’s failed push in the ‘90s and the second Bush’s prescription drug plan in 2003. Add all of them together and you come to — drum role, please — our official 2010 Act: “requiring” most companies to cover their workers; “mandating” that everyone have coverage or pay a fine; “requiring” insurance companies to accept all comers, regardless of any pre-existing conditions; and “assisting” people who can’t afford insurance. There has been a pattern of steady, successful pushes for more government requirements, controls and mandates. Not just federal, but state intervention, too — even by our “less Big G” Republicans. And
with each new level of control and mandate, not one addresses the real concern of lower costs while maintaining a standard of care. What we do see is Congress, corporations and soon-to-be unions with free passes and exemptions in our new system – those privileged few classes. Do we so easily forget that just last year, we had our payments to Social Security and Medicare on the line for politicians to “decide” whether they’d like to give them out? Using them as threats to force political hands. Why, oh why, would we want to place another system in their hand to do likewise? Why must we give them more control over basic functions of our society? Indeed, almost all our problems have resulted from the politicization of medicine. Must we fall prey to Thomas Sowell’s wise words that “only in government is any benefit, no matter how small, considered to be worth any cost, however large?” Every study, every conceivable angle to more equality and access
to care for socialized medicine, has resulted in failure. Even Britain and Canada acknowledge this setback but happily state that every problem is one that can be “reformed” away by more bureaucracy. The real question is why health care costs are so high. Medical prices rise far beyond general inflation. Notice that government doesn’t say we need standard of care improved for the 30 million uninsured. Instead, they say the “costs” are too high for uninsured access. So, if costs were down, no one would need government intervention, right? Instead, we have seen a complete cartelization of the medical field, dating back to 1910. We can trace licensure back to the Flexner Report in 1910 that gave the medical field their associations (state AMAs) to increase wages of doctors and increase prices in licensed hospitals. Nearly half of all medical facilities were closed post-Flexner Report. For our older readers, do you ever remember in-home doctor visits focused on patient care first with low costs to
boot? This is sorely missed with our now-mechanized version of assembly-line care. For them it’s all about power — power of the medical boards and associations over the field. This hurts consumers and leads to extremely high costs. Similar to the legal field, licensure has proven to be a damaging endeavor — limiting proper supply and demand of medical participants. In every cartel, producers replace consumers in the seat of power. Removing competing forces like for-profit medical schools and alternative medicines, they created faculty-run institutions propped up by wealthy donors and foundations, governed by perks rather than by the benefit they give to consumers. Further, the flaws of medical insurance remain prevalent, with the government first encouraging its existence to deal with its previous cost burden. Only in our medical insurance system, unlike fire or other forms, do we see government and insurers pay what doctors or hospitals choose to charge, instead
of a fixed sum based on annual fixed premium — thus allowing them to set their own demand. In economic terms, an unlimited rising demand curve ensures a dramatic increase in prices. Suppliers just set their own demand by unlimited third-party payments. And how the industry howls when caps and increased deductibles are seen as price controls for trying to reduce their indulgences. Not to mention the problem of calculating and preventing moral hazards in defining what “medical care” actually is. Lo and behold, it appears our entire medical crisis is born, largely from a century of malfeasance. So tomorrow, when government-run exchanges are unveiled, just remember this article. Don’t let government create an inseparable marriage with your health, for if we let it, only then we will truly utter our vow: till death do us part. Cory Farraez is a third year law student from Columbus.

Lott Leadership hosts high school debate tournament
TYLER JACKSON | The Daily Mississippian
A high school debate contestant prepares for his round Friday afternoon.
By KENYA ASHBY email@example.com
This past weekend, the Lott Leadership Institute hosted a high school forensics tournament on the campus of The University of Mississippi. Three hundred twenty-eight students from 24 schools participated in the two-day event. The tournament was comprised of several categories including events in the interpretation of literature, limited preparation speaking, storytelling and various styles of debate. The tournament allowed students to “break down speech topics and literature and create arguments with them,” according to Director of Forensics JoAnn Edwards. “The speeches were based on research and required a lot of practice and rehearsal,” Edwards said. “The competitors
were then evaluated by judges who determined their strengths and weaknesses in communication.” Edwards emphasized that the weekend was a successful recruitment tool. “The tournament is not only a valuable recruiting tool for the department, but also allows students to get to know and engage with the campus,” Edwards said. Win or lose, Edwards believes the success of the event cannot be reduced to scores. “The main point is to encourage these students to be better communicators and to make them better advocates for change,” Edwards said. Currently, the Stennis Center at Mississippi State University and the Lott Leadership Institute at Ole Miss are the only two collegiate programs in the state that host high school speech and debate tourna-

ments. Mississippi State University holds a novice tournament, which is aimed at freshmen. Edwards said Ole Miss hosts the only full-scale tournament in the state that incorporates people in a variety of events, not just novices. In addition to awards given for excellence in singular events, competitors and schools compete for sweepstakes and scholarship awards. The Rose Bui Memorial Scholarship, an individual sweepstakes award, is given to the student who does the best in three events in memory of a deceased team member from Biloxi. Schools who have the most students advancing to final rounds of competition are honored with sweepstakes awards. The top school receives the the Glenn Menna Traveling Sweepstakes Award named in honor of Glenn Menna, the former Director of Forensics at Lawrence County High School. Madison Central High School received this year’s Menna Sweekstakes Award and Israel Lyons of Hattiesburg High School was honored with the Bui Award for individual excellence.
Lewis Hall is notably one of the few campus buildings not indicated as having its own highspeed wireless access, despite the presence of such access in all the surrounding buildings. Other such buildings are the Turner Center, Paul B. Johnson Commons and the Ridge North Residential Hall. “There’s a particular spot on campus, right near Alumni Drive, where I lose reception completely sometimes. I mean, calls drop, and I can’t even call people back until I drive far enough away,” senior art major Elizabeth Wilson said. The university’s Wireless Network Access home page notes that some buildings have undergone complete hardware upgrades to extend and improve wireless services, courtesy of the Office of Information Technology, and progress will continue throughout the year. Despite day-to-day service issues, campus inhabitants now no longer have to worry about poor service on gamedays. Stealth poles have been installed in the Grove as part of the university’s DAS project, which refers to a Distributed Antenna System contracted by the university with a company called NextG Networks. A DAS is a vendor-neutral network of antenna nodes that are designed to promote and support high cell bandwidth use and capacity needs within one specific area. Such systems have been installed in airports, shopping centers, cruise ships and sports arenas with great success. The DAS addresses cellular service but not Wi-Fi, though there is the possibility of further additions to improve Internet capabilities in the future. As of November 2012, the university’s Department of Facilities Planning reported that DAS covering the Grove, the Circle, Vaught-Hemingway Stadium and the Ford Center is complete and fully functioning.
both active and potential members in our organization because we understand that you don’t have to break down a person to ‘better’ them.” “Behind the Campus Walls” also highlights political figures who came from the Greek system, namely former president George W. Bush, Condoleeza Rice, Donald Trump and other figures. Total Frat Move writer BlutarskyTFM responded with an article regarding fraternity life shortly after the release of the documentary. With colorful language, the author begins by stating the documentary is an attempt on Iran’s part to undermine the reputation of the United States. The writer said filming at Ole Miss must have been “a bit of a culture shock for those freedom haters.” He also said the Grove on gameday is “a pretty great mix of both tradition and debauchery.” The TFM believes that the Iranian response to this documentary of Greek life will be positive. When it is viewed, people in Iran will see “fraternity men having a great time surrounded by attractive women.” At the conclusion of the TFM documentary review, the author at TFM states that the descriptions of fraternity life given by the Iranian documentary are “a pretty accurate explanation of what fraternities are all about. Access to alcohol, majestic houses and top-secret networks built upon alumni relations.”

very impressive until a late fourth-quarter collapse. Ole Miss was very stout against the run for most of the day, and the deep ball didn’t beat them either. They had only given up 16 points, until a late safety and 50-yard touchdown run when the game was in hand. “Real proud of (the defense’s) effort,” Freeze said. “It had to be frustrating to be on that side of the ball and just know that we never could get any life in us because we never could produce any points.” For continuing coverage of Ole Miss Football, follow @JLgrindin and @thedm_sports on Twitter.

Ole Miss soccer splits first SEC weekend By NICK ELEY
Friday: No. 7 Florida 4, No. 24 Ole Miss 1 No. 24 Ole Miss (8-2-1, 1-1 SEC) suffered its first conference and first home loss of the season on Friday, losing 4-1 to the No. 7 Florida Gators (8-1-1, 2-0). The game got out of hand quickly for the Rebels, who allowed Florida to score three goals in the first 16 minutes of action. One of those goals was by SEC leading scorer freshman forward Savannah Jordan, who is closely trailed by Ole Miss’ senior forward Rafaelle Souza. Following that onslaught, Ole Miss was able to contain the Gators, only allowing a fourth goal in the last minute of play. However, the Rebels were not able to muster enough offense of their own, with sophomore forward Bethany Bunker scoring the lone goal for the Rebels. “We certainly got run over a little bit tonight in the first half,” head coach Matt Mott said. “Florida came out and really took it to us early. We’ll watch a little film in the morning and then flush it to get ready for Auburn.” He also noted that the lack of ball pressure was a mistake by the whole team, and not just the back line. Junior goalkeeper Kelly McCormick repeated Mott’s words, saying that the team would take the game and “flush it” and move on to the next game.
Sunday: No. 24 Ole Miss 7, Auburn 0 The Rebels (9-2-1, 2-1) certainly did move on from the Florida match in a big way on Sunday afternoon, defeating Auburn (4-6-1, 0-3) in dominating fashion, 7-0. After Ole Miss scored two goals in the first four minutes of play, Auburn put on some pressure of their own, but could never get the ball in the net. McCormick recorded her sixth shut-out of the year, recording three saves but making a number of big plays against a persistent Auburn attack. “We came out with a vengeance and we won it,” McCormick said. Senior midfielder Mandy McCalla, who had been on pace with Souza for the team lead in goals through most of the nonconference portion of the schedule, said she was happy with her new role as midfielder. “I gotta keep passing, distributing,” McCalla said. “I’m not a forward like I used to be, so I have to keep getting it to those scorers. It’s always nice to score, though.” Bunker also had two goals in the match, while sophomore forward Olivia Harrison, senior midfielder Emily Reid and freshman forward Addie Forbus all scored a goal each. Souza, who did not score in either of the weekend’s matches, did pick up three more assists against Auburn. Ole Miss will be back in action again on Friday in Knoxville, against Tennessee.

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Much of the talk leading up to Ole Miss versus Alabama was about the Rebels and their chances to upset the Tide (40, 2-0). In fact, Ole Miss (3-1, 1-1) became somewhat of a media darling this week. However, that was not so when the lights came on in Bryant-Denny Stadium on Saturday night. The Rebels fell to the Crimson Tide by a score of 25-0. It was the first time Ole Miss has been shut out since 1998, when Arkansas and their first-year head coach Houston Nutt held the Rebels scoreless. “Obviously disappoint-
ing, felt real good about our preparation,” head coach Hugh Freeze said following the game. The preparation appeared to be fine. It was the execution that haunted the Rebels Saturday night. They were unable to get into a rhythm running the football, which prevented them from finding any rhythm at all on offense. “They had the right call every single time, it seemed like. Never could get in tempo in the first half,” Freeze said. The Rebels were not successful on first downs on Saturday night, a big reason why the tempo was lacking. “Just seemed like to those runs were two yards, which is difficult to move the chains a
lot on that” Freeze said. “They definitely had a good plan and executed it very well.” To add to that, fourth downs were also not so kind to the Rebel offense on Saturday night. They faced four fourth downs and were only able to convert on one late in the game, only to fail on one four plays later. Three of the fourth-down tries were from field goal range, but Freeze elected to go for a bigger prize. “Playing the number-one team at their place, just feeling like we’re going to need touchdowns to win it,” Freeze said. “In hindsight, who knows.” Defensively the Rebels were See RECAP, PAGE 5

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — One of the keys for Ole Miss coming into Saturday’s contest against Alabama was to effectively run the ball. The Rebels would have to in order to come away with a win against the two-time defending national champions. The Rebels rushed for just 46 yards and lost 25-0. While other factors were at play, such as the Alabama defense playing the best game it has all season and missed opportunities for the Rebel offense, it was the lack of an effective run game that really allowed Alabama to key in on the Rebel passing game and not let that beat them. “They definitely had a plan to stop (runs to the outside); they were going to make us run it up the middle, and we couldn’t get it done,” offensive coordinator Dan Werner said following the game on Saturday night. Defensively the Rebels looked good for the better part of three and a half quarters, holding the Crimson Tide to just 16 points in that stretch. The Rebels did well to create havoc for the Tide offense, as they forced three fumbles on the day. However, each time Alabama fumbled, they recovered it. Ole Miss was able to force a turnover late when junior safety Cody Prewitt picked off his third pass of the season, in Alabama territory. “They’re a really good team. It’s hard to bend and not break against a good offense like that,” Prewitt said. “We
did fight, and I’m proud of the way we did play. They’re just a really good team.” After a lackluster performance, is confidence lost? “We haven’t lost any confidence whatsoever,” Prewitt said. “We know that this was the No. 1 team in the nation. They’re number one for a reason. We knew we would have to play almost a perfect game, and we made some mistakes. We’re going to go fix some mistakes and have our head held high going into Auburn.” While the Rebels struggled in many areas on the offensive side of the ball Saturday night, junior wide receiver Donte Moncrief is positive that all mishaps from Saturday night are correctable. “Oh yeah, it’s correctable stuff. It’s some small things we didn’t do that we always do” Moncrief said. “We weren’t having fun, we weren’t in our tempo. That’s what we do to get our offense going. Our offense used to be fun. We got to fix that and get better.” Did Moncrief ever think that this Rebel offense would be shut out? “I promise you it won’t ever happen again,” he said.
