Review of Chinese-Japanese relations BY VINOD KANNUTHURAI firstname.lastname@example.org
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, in an interview with The Wall Street Journal last week, described the leadership role he expects Japan to assume in Asia. “I’ve realized that Japan is expected to exert leadership not just on the economic front but also in the field of security in the Asia-Pacific,” he said. Japan’s concerns regarding the rise of China as a diplomatic and military presence in the region stem from the economic growth of China since 1978 at roughly 10 percent per year, according to the World Bank. China has become the second largest economy in the world and has attempted to create a larger diplomatic impact emblematic of this rise. In contrast, Japanese economic growth has stalled in the last two decades. The growth of China and the stagnation of Japan have led to conflicting visions regarding the roles of each country in the Asia-Pacific, espeT H E D A I LY

cially within the past five years. The largest issue illustrating this conflict between China and Japan is the dispute for ownership of a group of eight uninhabited islands, currently administered by Japan. These islands, referred to as the Senkaku islands by the Japanese and the Diaoyu islands by the Chinese, are located in the East China Sea, east of the Chinese mainland and southwest of Japan’s Okinawa province. What makes ownership of these islands so contentious is the natural resources found in the waters around these islands. Marianne Lavelle and Jeff Smith of National Geographic note that the offshore areas around the islands contain considerable deposits of oil and national gas potentially totaling four to five times the resources of the Gulf of Mexico. With large economies requiring a great deal of access to energy, these resources are highly valued by both Chinese and Japanese officials. Thousands of Chinese citizens have organized boycotts of Japanese goods, ransacked

Japanese businesses in China, and staged protests outside the Japanese embassy in Beijing, according to Brian Spegele and Takahi Nakamichi of The Wall Street Journal. There seems to be little chance of a resolution for this conflict in the near future with both Chinese and Japanese naval forces scheduled to stage exercises in the region. Luckily, economic concerns seem to unify Japan and China. As Martin Fackler and Ian Johnson of The New York Times write, “according to Japan’s Finance Ministry, China was Japan’s largest trading partner last year, and Japan is China’s second-biggest trading partner after the United States.” Furthermore, the pair notes that “Japan is also China’s largest outside investor, with Japanese companies directly or indirectly employing about 10 million Chinese, according to a Japanese lobby group.” With these statistics in mind, it is hard to see how China or Japan could initiate a conflict with the other without inflicting severe economic harm upon itself.

This is reassuring considering the security obligations between Japan and the United States. Article V of the Treaty of Mutual Cooperation and Security, signed by the United States and Japan in 1960, obligates the United States to assist Japan in the event of an attack upon Japan. However, if a Chinese-Japanese conflict were to occur, the potential for any disruption of the over $500 billion US-China economic relationship would prove to be disastrous for the United States, which holds China as its secondlargest trading partner, thirdlargest export market and largest source of imports, according to Wayne M. Morrison of the Congressional Research Service. Although a conflict between China and Japan seems unlikely in the short term, it is essential for U.S. diplomats to continue to remain closely attuned to the potential of war between China and Japan because of the enormous costs a conflict would hold.

Tests suggest Mississippi baby born with HIV may be cured; girl, now 3, shows no infection the child for a longer time and be absolutely sure there’s no rebound,” said Dr. Katherine Luzuriaga, a University of Massachusetts AIDS expert involved in the baby’s care. The government’s top AIDS scientist, Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, agreed. “At minimum, the baby is in a clear remission. It is possible that the baby has actually been cured. We don’t have a definition for cure as we do for certain cancers, where after five years or so you can be relatively certain the person is not going to go and relapse,” he said. A scientist at his institute did sophisticated tests that showed no active virus in the child. A government-sponsored international study starting in January aims to test early treatment in babies born with HIV to see if the results in this case can be reproduced. Most HIV-infected moms in the U.S. get AIDS medicines during pregnancy, which greatly
cuts the chances they will pass the virus to their babies. But the Mississippi mom got no prenatal care and her HIV was discovered during labor. Doctors considered the baby to be at such high risk that they started the child on three powerful medicines 30 hours after birth, rather than waiting for a test to confirm infection as is usually done. Within a month, the baby’s virus fell to undetectable levels. She remained on treatment until she was 18 months old when doctors lost contact with her. Ten months later when she returned, they could find no sign of infection even though the mom had stopped giving the child AIDS medicines. Only one other person is thought to have been cured of HIV infection — a San Francisco man who had a bone marrow transplant in 2007 from a donor with natural resistance to HIV, and showed no sign of infection five years later. In the Mississippi baby, “there’s no immune mechanism we can identify that would
keep the virus in check” like that bone marrow donor, said another study author, Dr. Deborah Persaud of the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center, who helped investigate the case because she has researched treatment in children. Dr. Peter Havens, pediatric HIV chief at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin and a government adviser on HIV treatment guidelines, said the child may have an undiscovered genetic trait that helped her manage the virus. “I’m just not convinced that her dramatic response would be replicable in a large population,” he said. It’s too soon to recommend treating other highrisk babies so aggressively without more study, he said. In the upcoming study, doctors plan to give AIDS medicines for at least two years and watch for signs of remission before suspending treatment and seeing whether a remission results. The Mississippi case “did open people’s eyes further” about a possible cure, Luzuriaga
said. “We might be able to intervene early and spare children a lifetime of therapy. That is the potential impact of this case.”

Doctors now have convincing evidence that they put HIV into remission, hopefully for good, in a Mississippi baby born with the AIDS virus — a medical first that is prompting a new look at how hard and fast such cases should be treated. The case was reported earlier this year but some doctors were skeptical that the baby was really infected rather than testing positive because of exposure to virus in the mom’s blood. The new report, published online Wednesday by the New England Journal of Medicine, makes clear that the girl, now 3, was infected in the womb. She was treated unusually aggressively and shows no active infection despite stopping AIDS medicines 18 months ago. Doctors won’t call it a cure because they don’t know what proof or how much time is needed to declare someone free of HIV infection, long feared to be permanent. “We want to be very cautious here. We’re calling it remission because we’d like to observe

Feature Photos: All-American Drive and part of Homecoming Festivities Hill Drive closed for the week BY CATY CAMBRON firstname.lastname@example.org
Multiple roads on campus will be closed this week due to construction on the new Natural Products Research Center, according to a weekend alert sent out by the university. Barricades will be placed at the four-way stop on University Drive turning left onto All American Drive and at the right hand turn off of Hill Drive in front of the campus Einstein Bros Bagels. No through traffic will be allowed on this portion of All American. However, those authorized to park in lots behind Shoemaker and Hume Halls will be able to do so. The Natural Products Research Center is part of the renovation and added con-
struction to the Thad Cochran Research Center, located on All American Drive. According to the alert, barricades will be put on campus due to a 500-ton crane lifting HVAC units to be installed on the roof of the new building. Work is expected to be done by this Friday, Nov. 1, at which time the portion of All American will reopen.

Annual Ten-Minute Play Festival held at Powerhouse BY ANN-MARIE HEROD firstname.lastname@example.org
This past weekend Theatre Oxford held its annual Ten Minute Play Festival at the Powerhouse Community Arts Center. Over the last few days, the Powerhouse Community Arts Center filled with people who came to see the final product of Theatre Oxford’s hard work. The festival was created as a way for local playwrights to showcase their talents and also get involvement from the community. For the past 14 years, Theatre Oxford has hosted the Ten-Minute Play Festival. The National 10-Minute Play Contest was founded in 1998 by two local playwrights, Neil White and L.W. Thomas. In 2000, The Annual Ten-Minute Play Festival started and featured locally written plays. One of the reasons the festival has been so successful is its format. Each play only lasts for 10 minutes, so audience members see multiple plays all in one night. This year’s festival featured “Evaporated,” “The Soulmate Train,” “Unusual Suspects,” “One of Many Strange Things That Happen On a Cruise Ship” and “Bad Thing,” which won the Na-
tional Contest. “The subjects range from two children being caught in a basement after a nuclear bomb, to three monsters being interrogated by a detective after Halloween, to two brothers riding in a car reminiscing about their parents and thinking about the future,” director Alice Walker said. Staying true to its roots, some of this year’s plays were written by local Oxonians Bill Dabney and Judith Isacoff. The festival also once again featured a play of two-time National Contest winner Austin K. Steinmetz of Columbus, Ohio, who was dubbed an honorary member of the Oxford community. His Halloween-themed play, “Unusual Suspects,” tells the story of three monsters and their take on Halloween. Theatre Oxford is a gateway for anybody ranging from the grandpa to the granddaughter to have the opportunity to act on the local level and have fun. For Ole Miss graduate Nick Husbands, this is the perfect opportunity to do something he loved in high school. “I’ve only acted in community theater here in Oxford since I came here in 1998,” Husbands said. “It is great because it is one of the only chances I get each year
to be on stage. When I first started acting, I would get nervous, but now that does not happen much. Without the butterflies in my stomach, I can really just enjoy being on stage and pretending to be someone else.” After the show, many audience members gave rave reviews for the plays. The actors in the production ranged from middle-school students to a middle-aged adult. Many people enjoyed the sense of community at the festival. During intermission, many of the actors mingled with audience members. “I could tell you about some of the 10-minute plays from 10 years ago; they were that good,” Margaret Wylde said. “It’s great because we get to see works of people who aren’t professional playwrights, and they come up with some really great stuff. “We had some really great casting. The actors were amazing. The plays were written very clever. My favorite was ‘The SoulMate Train;’ it told three different stories all in one, short 10-minute play. It was great because he didn’t just focus on the one couple but two others as well.” Many of the playwrights attended the show, and some for the first time, got to finally see their piece

of work come alive. Steinmetz came all the way from Ohio to see his play. “It’s a lot of joy when you watch it, especially with comedies” Steinmetz said. “It is so great to be in there sitting and hearing people laugh at the line you created. It’s pure joy.” His inspiration for the play was his love for Halloween.
“I really wanted to write a Halloween play. I got great characters, the witch, Frankenstein and the werewolf. It all just fit together,” he said. For an hour and 30 minutes, the audience came away with five different plays and a night of fun. The deadline for the 2014 National 10-Minute Play Contest is Feb. 15, 2014.

Ole Miss won in a landslide on Saturday, defeating the Idaho Vandals 59-14, but it was the Rebels’ rushing attack that was the story of the game, as it accounted for 292 of the 572 yards for the Ole Miss offense. The Rebels utilized a wide array of running backs to obtain this success in the run game, splitting the carries between sophomores I’Tavius Mathers and Jaylen Walton and true freshmen Mark Dodson and Kailo Moore. The backs’ success didn’t stop with the run game, however, as Dodson and Moore both made nice contributions in the passing game. Mathers was the team’s leading rusher, gaining 138 yards on 9.9 yards a carry and scoring a touchdown, while Walton gained 86 yards on 7.8 yards a carry and two touchdowns, which now gives him the most rushing touchdowns on the team with five on the season. As for the freshmen backs, Dodson made the most of seven carries by picking up 57 yards and also had a 30-yard receiving touchdown. Moore struggled to find room on the ground but did a great job utilizing his speed in the passing game, getting 22 yards on three catches. “The first guy that jumps out at me would be Dodson,” Freeze said. “I thought he showed some explosion, some physical runs, although he’s gotta take care of the ball better. I thought Kailo showed some good burst on some of our swing routes and things. We think both of those guys are really good players. We just have some good players at that spot, and I’d have to say Dodson showed some flashes that he wants to compete.” The emergence of these back-
up running backs in the absence of senior starter Jeff Scott has made for quite a crowded backfield. “I’m gonna let them compete, and we’ll sort it out,” Freeze said. “But we’ll try to have some packages and keep them fresh for all the guys that are healthy. Those two guys (Mathers and Walton) along with Dodson and Kailo tonight, all four had some good things. I’Tavius and Jaylen certainly looked solid.” Offensive coordinator Dan Werner shared Freeze’s enthusiasm in the freshman backs’ performance. “They all ran hard. I was really impressed with those guys,” Werner said. “Those guys get a chance to get in there. They want to play obviously, and they get their chance, and they proved to us that they will run hard.” Werner also is still determining the best way to split carries between the backs, especially for Mathers and Walton. “We’ve gotta sit down and talk about it because those guys have done a really good job,” Werner said. “I was really pleased, and I know Coach Freeze is too, so we just have to see. But they will play. They will definitely get some snaps.” For continuing coverage of Ole Miss football, follow @TheCodyThomason and @thedm_sports on Twitter.

With time running down in the first overtime period, senior Erin Emerson lined up a corner kick from the near side of the field and sent the ball into the box. Souza leaped up over an Alabama defender and headed the ball into the net past the near post to give the Rebels the victory in the 97th minute of play. It was one of many opportunities the Rebels had on the afternoon, but one of the few not turned away by the Alabama defense and goalkeeper Emily Rusk. Ole Miss tallied 24 shots on the afternoon, many on set pieces in the box as the Rebels took 12 corners, but only found the back of the net twice. The two times was enough for the win and three more points in the conference standings. “It was a very hard-fought match today and Sunday’s in the SEC are always tough,” said Ole Miss head coach Matthew Mott. “We got off to a good start and got a good goal. Then Pia Rijsdijk got a good goal when she got free. We took control in the second half, but just couldn’t find the back of the net. Rafa Souza finally got a good one and put it in for us to get us the win.”

Everyone expects to win their homecoming, and Saturday night Ole Miss did just that. The Rebels (5-3, 2-3 Southeastern Conference) dominated nonconference foe Idaho (1-7) the whole way through en route to a 59-14 win. “It’s good to get a win tonight,” Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze said. “The first half was a bit sloppy and undisciplined. The first six or seven minutes were really good, but the rest of the first half, we were going through the motions. I was disappointed at halftime, but I felt like we played a pretty solid second half. It was great to get everyone in and to come out injuryfree.” The Rebels jumped out to a big lead early and controlled the game the whole way through, as junior quarterback Bo Wallace found senior wide receiver Ja-Mes Logan from 37 yards out for a touchdown, sophomore running back Jaylen Walton ran 40 yards for a score and senior kicker Andrew Ritter knocked home a 50-yard field goal to give Ole Miss a quick 17-0 lead. Idaho would add a touchdown in the second quarter, but Ole Miss would answer with another Walton touchdown run, this time from 1 yard out, to put the score at 24-7 heading into halftime. A recharged Ole Miss team came out of the locker room in the second half and would light up the scoreboard for 35 second-half points while holding Idaho to just seven. To start off, Wallace would find Logan again for their second touchdown connection of the night, this one coming on a 65-yard pass. Then, the defense would strike with a 12-yard fumble recovery and return for a touchdown by senior defensive back Dehendret Collins. For the second week in a row, sophomore running back I’Tavius Mathers made a big
impact in the game. Mathers, who totaled 138 yards, had a 64-yard touchdown run late in the third, and then fellow running back Dodson would make his mark with a 30-yard touchdown reception, which was his first catch and touchdown in an Ole Miss uniform. Walton also added 86 yards and two touchdowns. Junior wideout Collins Moore would cap the scoring for the Rebels with a 35-yard touchdown grab on a pass from senior quarterback Barry Brunetti, which pushed the lead to 59-14. The Ole Miss offense was rolling all night, racking up 572 total yards on offense, 292 on the ground and 280 in the air. “We did get a little sloppy there,” offensive coordinator Dan Werner said. “We talked to our guys all week long; coach has been on us and on them about making sure we take care of the little things. We want to get better each week, and during the second quarter, we probably didn’t get much better, but I was proud in the second half we came out and played well.” The Rebels now enter a bye week, and Freeze believes it is perfect timing to get some time to rest. “We need it desperately,” Freeze said of the bye. “We played without seven starters again tonight, and if you count C.J. (Johnson) and Aaron (Morris), it’s even more than that. We’ve played without some key people, and this bye comes at a really good time for us to get them healthy for the remaining games.” For continuing coverage of Ole Miss football, follow @SigNewton_2 and @thedm_sports on Twitter.

Lady Rebel soccer splits weekend matches FRIDAY: NO. 19 TEXAS A&M 2, NO. 23 OLE MISS 1 COLLEGE STATION, Texas – In a hard-fought match that went down to the wire, it took an inadvertent touch in the box to set up a penalty kick and decide things as No. 23 Ole Miss (12-42, 5-3-1 SEC) fell to No. 19 Texas A&M (13-3-1, 8-1-0 SEC) by a score of 2-1. The Rebels took the lead in the first half before the Aggies would equalize in the 67th minute. With less than five minutes remaining in regulation, Ole Miss was called for a handball in the box on an inadvertent touch to set up a penalty kick that gave the home-standing Aggies the lead. Ole Miss couldn’t find an answering goal as Texas A&M picked up the win in the battle between the two nationally-ranked teams. “It was a good match that was hard fought,” said Ole Miss head coach Matt Mott. “That’s twice this season with two of our four losses coming on unintentional and inadvertent hand balls called in the box very late in games. That’s really disappointing because we played really well. It’s part of the game and what we have to deal with, but I’m really proud of our players for coming into a tough place to play and handling playing in front of a tough crowd. SUNDAY: NO. 23 OLE MISS 2, ALABAMA 1 Senior forward Rafaelle Souza came up big for the Rebels on Sunday afternoon, punching in a pair of goals that included the golden goal in overtime to give No. 23 Ole Miss (13-4-2, 6-3-1 SEC) a 2-1 victory over Alabama (6-11-0, 4-6-0 SEC).
