For the second time in a month, the Associated Student Body Senate voted against a student election bill last night. The bill limited the number of campaigners allowed at specific locations on campaign day for student elections. The bill allowed for no more than 20 campaigners per candidate at the Union, no more than 15 per candidate at the Circle and no more than five per candidate in front of Fulton Chapel. ASB Attorney General Rob Pillow, Senator Rod Bridges, Senator Austin Dean and Senator James Parrett authored the bill and presented it Tuesday night. The bill was reintroduced at last night’s meeting after the ASB Judicial Council clarified ASB Senate terminology and procedure Monday night. On Nov. 12, twenty-three senators voted in affirmation of the bill, 19 voted in negation, and nine senators abstained from voting. Since there were not enough senators voting either way to
create a simple majority, the bill failed. The ASB Judicial Council held a hearing Monday night after Parrett filed a complaint that the term “present and voting” did not clarify how abstentions should be counted. After the ruling, it was decided that abstentions would not count as affirmation or negation and a simple majority would be determined from what votes were cast. “Last time (the bill) was presented, the abstentions counted against the overall total for the passage of the bill, so had the abstentions not counted, it would have passed,” Bridges said. “We were hoping with the same argument, with the same changes actually with the compromise that we had with the bill before, we were hoping that the bill would have passed like it should have previously.” The senators voted against the bill last night with 23 senators voting in affirmation and 32 voting against the bill. Five senators did not vote. Senator Cody Smith spoke in opposition of the bill saying the
senate should find alternative solutions to the situation. “I believe that if we would have evaluated more alternatives, we would have something more acceptable to everyone,” Smith said. “I’m not here to represent the majority or the minority. I’m here to represent them all. I believe we could do something that will not inhibit the campaigners but will help the travelers.” Pillow said he was displeased with how the senators voted. “I do not believe that the senate voted in a way that was representative of the student body,” Pillow said. “Although the bill had support of the student body, faculty, staff, advisors, and many senators, those few felt the responsibility to deprive the student body of what it clearly wanted.” Bridges wanted to encourage students to speak to their senators in order to voice their opinions on the issue. “I really want to encourage people to evaluate the situation and really talk to his or her senator about the issue if that it is a problem that they’d like to see addressed.”
UM Honors College student numbers rising BY RANDALL HALEY email@example.com
The Sally McDonnell Barksdale Honors College will be expanding due to the increasing number of students enrolled in the honors program. In 2012, the honors college broke the 1,000-student mark for the first time, with 1,050 students enrolled, according to its website. For the 2013-14 academic year, 1,264 students applied to the honors college, and 626 students were accepted. Total enrollment increased to 1,133 students. “We are pleasantly surprised at the growth and the number of students that qualify to be accepted in the honors college,” said John Samonds, associate dean of the honors college. “The most important part is the public space.
OPINION: Diplomatic incompetence
We don’t have room to have large get-togethers, receptions and speakers.” Douglass Sullivan-Gonzalez, dean of the honors college, said the building will be doubled in size. He emphasized the importance of stepping up the honors college during a time in which public universities are becoming more valuable. “It will give the students more classrooms and more study space,” Sullivan-Gonzalez said. “The cost of private universities has gone out the roof since the economy downturn in 2008. There is a greater demand for quality education at a public university.” The honors college provides an increasing number of challenging courses, opportunities for experiential learning both in the United States and abroad and avenues for
effective engagement with community concerns. For the last two years, more than 300 freshmen, averaging an ACT score of 30 and a 3.85 high school GPA, have joined the honors college each year, according to its website. Students enrolled in the honors college hail from 33 states and six foreign countries, with students from Mississippi making up 63 percent of the enrollment. Honors students can be found in every college and school that grants bachelor’s degrees, and currently students are spread over 71 different majors, according to the website. Construction to expand the honors college is scheduled to begin in spring 2014 and is expected to take 15 months to complete. Freshman biochemistry major Blake Sowers, member of the

honors college senate, said the extension will help grow the honors college. “It’s exciting to see that the honors college is expanding in its number of students,” Sowers said. “This means that more and more
students are trying to get the most out of what the university has to offer them and have decided that the honors college is where they can benefit most and create opportunities for the rest of their lives.”

Diplomatic incompetence on parade BY: WHITNEY GREER email@example.com
With another attempted policy improvement, the White House has ensnared itself and the United States in another foreign policy predicament. The misstep this time isn’t with the stealthy Putin, or a wily whistleblower, but rather the scheming mullahs of Iran. On Nov. 23, a nuclear deal including six major powers and Iran, orchestrated by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, was signed into a short-lived agreement. President Barack Obama praised the deal stating, “Today, that diplomacy opened up a new path toward a world that is more secure — a future in which we can verify that Iran’s nuclear program is peaceful and that it cannot build a nuclear weapon.” Unfortunately, the lauded future of a more secure world contingent on Iran’s wellmeaning nuclear intentions is not today, tomorrow or any foreseeT H E D A I LY

able date. Almost immediately after the deal was signed, the wheels started to fall off on both ends. The United States’ strongest ally in the Middle East, Israel, is notorious for its defense program and no-nonsense approach to dealing with extremists in the region and further abroad. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu described the deal as more of a malignant artifice, calling it, “a historic mistake … this agreement has made the world a much more dangerous place.” President Shimon Peres added an undercurrent of hostility to Netanyahu’s words that reflect their policy on the deal stating, “The international community will not tolerate a nuclear Iran. And if the diplomatic path fails, the nuclear option will be prevented by other means. The alternative is far worse.” Thus it seems if Kerry in his abounding foreign policy knowledge and experience can’t discern when to cut off diplomatic spatting and push the red button on the wall, come “go time” Israel is ready and willing to lead the offensive against a nuclear Iran. So, just what about this deal is

ruffling so many feathers? Firstly, it’s made with soft power moored in diplomatic and economic negotiations — both areas in which Obama has no international credibility. Secondly, it allows for sanction relief to Iran while demanding nothing legitimate from it at a point when its regime’s legitimacy within its own borders is threatening to crumble. And mostly because all that is required from Iran is easily reversible cosmetic changes to its nuclear program, allowing it to keep its 19,000 centrifuges, 3,000 machines of the same purpose that are far more efficient, and business to continue as usual at its plutonium facility in Arak. We’re leaving it with uranium that can be made nuclear grade in a month, and the means to do so. Merry Christmas, Iran, enjoy. While the ink on the deal was still drying, Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani, stated, “Let anyone make his own reading, but this right is clearly stated on the text of the agreement that Iran can continue its enrichment, and I announce to our people that enrichment activities will continue as before.” Hearing this bold deviance

from the intention of the deal, Secretary Kerry immediately countered that the deal does not give Iran such liberty to continue its enrichment. Quite correct, secretary, because we all know the mullahs behind the wheel of Iran like to play by the rules, especially flimsy ones made by the “Great Satan.” Obama has attempted to ease the minds of those with any cognizance of Iran’s true nuclear motives by stating the deal is merely an interim one, good for only six months. The United States was unable to get Iran to sign a deal truly halting its hostile nuclear program when it was on the verge of economic collapse and needed sanction relief, and thinks by giving it relief for six months it will be willing to come to the table and negotiate? Now Iran has no reason to be even remotely diplomatic, and the negotiations can be expected to only dissolve further as Iran gains more economic and nuclear ground with its capabilities and accompanying itch to pull the trigger only escalating.

How about that new pope? BY PHIL MCCAUSLAND email@example.com
I was raised Catholic, but I wouldn’t call myself Catholic. That being said, this new pope is dope! Apologies for the easy rhyme, but he seems like a pretty swell guy. He’s good. How good? I mean besides ignoring the sexual abuse thing, I’d say he’s pretty good. For example, if you were to come to me and say, “Hey, Phil, buddy, on a scale of 1-10, how good is this pope?” I might say, “Hey, guy, I don’t know if I feel comfortable calling you buddy, but I think I’d give this new pope a 10.” Maybe you would come back at me with, “I feel comfortable calling you buddy, why can’t you reciprocate? What’s the problem? Also, Phil, would you say this pope is the best pope?”
My response would probably be, “Listen, we just met. No need to rush this. I just think calling you buddy at this point would be disingenuous. How about we get to know each other better? And, as for the pope, I think I might call him the best pope, although I must admit my knowledge of all the popes is pretty limited. I only really know about the last two. That last one seemed kind of like a bummer.” “Benedict?” “Yeah, that’s the one. He seemed real tired all the time.” “You think that’s why he retired?” “Sure.” At this point you might pause, scratch your nose, touch your face, bite your nails or something. Maybe you’d crack a knuckle real loud and then we’d both look at your hands, and you’d get kind of embarrassed. Then you’d look up at me and ask, “You hear what Rush Limbaugh said about the new pope?” “You mean how the pope’s a Marxist advancing Barack

Obama’s secret leftist agenda to ruin capitalism for everyone?” I’d say. “Yeah. How about that?” you’d respond. “Well that guy’s show is dependent on listeners,” might be the start of my answer. Then I might continue like this, “So he probably says things that he knows are stupid and will make people angry. And let’s be honest, the Bible isn’t pro-idolatry of money or anything, so I think the pope is on point for this one. Ultimately, if I were Pope Francis and considered the Bible’s word to be important, I’d probably criticize unrestrained capitalism, too.” At this point, I’d imagine you’d nod and make a thoughtful noise like, “Hmm ...” or something. Then you’d change the subject and we’d talk about how disappointing the most recent “Die Hard” movie was.

Celebrate the holidays with the best of Netflix BY GILLY DREYER email@example.com
Five weeks of winter break — what is an Ole Miss student to do? I know! Celebrate the holidays, relax, catch up on post-finals-week sleep and, of course, spend some time with family and friends. But wait, we’re missing one thing. Sophomore journalism major Maggie Durnien calls it an addiction — others of us call it Netflix. “The thing about Netflix is that it starts automatically and it gives you 15 seconds to decide to watch the next episode, and before you know it, it’s 5 a.m. and you just finished the entire series of ‘Friday Night Lights’ in two weeks,” Durnien said. The attraction of Netflix is the ability to watch entire series of shows from the comfort of your own couch. Popular shows include “Gossip Girl,” “New Girl,” “Parks and Recreation,” “Orange is the New Black,” “Dexter,” “Desperate Housewives” and “Lost” — just to name a few. However, you can’t possibly catch them all, so here it goes, the top-three shows to binge-watch over the marathon that is Christmas break.
Two words: “Breaking Bad.” This September television said goodbye to the iconic methcooking, cancer-stricken high school teacher, Walter White. One would’ve thought the world was ending with all of the tweets surrounding the closing of such an incredible show. What’s the appeal? Sarah Scott, integrated marketing communications major, said, “When I started watching Breaking Bad I basically said goodbye to my social life. Something about a middle-aged man with cancer cooking meth is so intriguing. Oh, and Aaron Paul — that’s a plus!” What better way to spend your break than diving into the six-season series; naturally the first five are on the ‘flix! Next on the list comes “Scandal,” a show surrounding the life of Olivia Pope, a Washington, D.C., crisis manager who runs her own firm, Pope & Associates. “Scandal” takes you inside Pope’s world, in which she represents some of the top elites in the District of Columbia. Not to mention the on-againoff-again relationship with the dreamy President Fitzgerald Grant. The attraction is the
high-class drama. It brings the viewer inside a world of dirty politics in which the outcome is always unpredictable. “I literally count down the days between new episodes because each week you are left wondering what’s going to happen next,” senior marketing major Marlie Beech said. “Honestly, sometimes it’s hard to come to terms with the fact that Olivia Pope isn’t in our nation’s capital doing what she does best.” This series is still running, but it is taking a winter hiatus during the holiday season — perfect timing to catch up on the first two seasons. “Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, Can’t Lose” — more like “Tired Eyes, Empty Hearts, I’ve Lost,” because that’s how you will feel once you complete this final Netflix bender of a series — and that is coming from personal experience. “Friday Night Lights” takes you deep into the roots of Texas football and has you rooting for the Dillon Panthers as if they were your Ole Miss Rebels. As Durnien said, she watched the series in two weeks. “I was no longer Maggie

Durnien, I was a resident of Dillon, Texas. It became so severe that my mom canceled my Netflix subscription. Is that awkward? Nope, not at all.” The reason this show captures the heart of so many is because it surrounds football and family, and is easily relatable — it also doesn’t hurt that the talented

Reducing stress for Advice to freshmen taking students finals BY CAROLYN SMITH firstname.lastname@example.org
BY ANTHONY DICANDIA email@example.com
As finals week sneaks up on freshmen who are taking college exams for the first time, many wonder how to prepare and where to study. Bridget Hester, an academic adviser for the Center for Student Success and First-Year Experience, believes that the J.D. Williams Library might not be the best choice for students who lack a keen sense of focus. “If you’re easily distracted, you might want to stay away from the more crowded areas, like the library,” Hester said. “If you get distracted by things in your dorm room, like the television, then change things up. If you need to change up the locations on different days, then do it, so you don’t get stuck in a rut.” Sophomore management information systems major Kelsey Haworth agrees. “Some nights in the library can get kind of loud, and it’s hard to focus,” she said. “Sometimes you can’t find a seat or a study spot, which can be stressful.” Sophomore political science major Chas Ellzey said the study rooms in the Ridge freshman dorms work out very well. “The study rooms they built in the dorms are actually pretty nice,” Ellzey said. “I studied in them last year and never had a problem.”
Hester recommends taking study breaks to stay focused. “One of my favorite activities when I was in grad school studying was to go outside and walk around,” Hester said. “It’s a beautiful campus, and we have the Grove. You can walk around the Circle, just get some fresh air and take your mind off your studies for a few minutes.” Hester also said she believes studying further in advance of your test in shorter sessions can lead to better results. “Start studying a couple weeks in advance,” Hester said. “Study for hour intervals and then take a break. Don’t try to cram, and give your brain a break from time to time.” Haworth said she has several tips to share with freshmen taking their first college exams. “Don’t cram, get your stuff prepared in advance and secure your Scantrons early,” Haworth said. “Find a place you can study best now; don’t try to find a study spot at the last minute. I think that will set them up for success.”
Jared Grigg, a graduate student in the psychology Ph.D. program, spends the majority of his time in clinical rounds at the University of Mississippi Counseling Center talking to students who have taken on too much and are overwhelmed by stress. Grigg said the effects of stress can extend to affect many areas of a student’s life. “Chronic stress can result in an inability to take care of daily living skills like showering, brushing your teeth and eating three meals a day,” Grigg said. Grigg cautions students against considering drugs and alcohol as alternatives to lifestyle changes that can reduce stress. “They allow for a temporary relief,” Grigg said. “But those situations come back and you’ve lost that time you spent doing whatever you were doing, and that creates more stress.” Junior journalism major Cara Wigmore is involved in the Ole Miss baseball marketing group, a campus honors and community service organization, and the Ole Miss Marketing Association. Wigmore said her life depends on her planners. “I have three separate planners, and in my phone I give myself alerts for an hour or two hours before I do something,” Wigmore said. “That gives me time to prepare and move on from what I’m doing now to prepare for what’s
next.” Grigg agrees that having a schedule that allows you to collect yourself before moving on to the next task is extremely beneficial. “Realize that schedules are fluid. Having a hard and fast time that you say ‘This is when I will switch what I’m doing’ can cause stress and anxiety.” Senior accounting major Taylor Lightner serves as president of a Greek organization and member of an international business and accounting honors organization, belongs to an academic excellence sorority and a leadership sorority, and is a proponent of healthy stress management. “I live by my planner,” Lightner said. “My days are so full.” Lightner said that downtime is critical to managing stress. “I go in my room and just sit,” Lightner said. “I take a five-minute deep breath. Other times I go and be with friends. Yoga helps a lot, but alone time is the best destresser for me.” Wigmore agrees that taking time for yourself and your health is important.
“Workouts and eating are a huge part of how I keep myself healthy,” Wigmore said. “I feel like when I work out it relieves all the stress. It just clears my mind.” Grigg said that finding time for yourself and activities to clear your mind are important to keeping balanced. “Find ways to slow your mind down to allow yourself that time to organize your thoughts,” Grigg said. Grigg encourages students coping with stress to consider participating in the Counseling Center’s “Calm in Chaos” courses. Grigg said that, although a jam-packed schedule does not make for an easy life, a busy life can be a fulfilling one. “Understanding the value of what you’re doing, asking yourself, ‘What makes me want to do this?’ takes that busy stressful schedule and it gives it meaning and value,” Grigg said.

Lady Rebels host Souza named semifinalist Louisiana Tech for for MAC Hermann Trophy midday matchup OLE MISS SPORTS INFORMATION
BY BROWNING STUBBS firstname.lastname@example.org
After being swept at the Rainbow Wahine Classic in Honolulu, Hawaii, the Ole Miss women’s basketball team (5-4) rebounded with four consecutive wins over the Thanksgiving break against Southeastern Louisiana, Tennessee State, Louisiana Monroe and Tulane. The Rebels will now begin their December slate of the season with a home game against Louisiana Tech today at 11 a.m. The Lady Techsters of Louisiana Tech are struggling at 1-5 on the year. This is a stretch of three games against Louisiana Tech, Mississippi Valley State and South Alabama from which the Rebels should collect some wins before they take the trip to Waco, Texas, Dec. 18 to face the ninth-ranked Baylor Lady Bears. Impact Players Ole Miss: Freshman forward Shequila Joseph is due for a
breakout game at some point this season for the Rebels. The freshman has been overshadowed thus far by players like Valencia McFarland, Tia Faleru and Diara Moore. Joseph has played and started all nine games this season for Ole Miss. With her averages of 6.4 points and 3.8 rebounds per game, look for Joseph to make an impact in this game. Louisiana Tech: Junior forward Whitney Frazier has been the leader this season for the Lady Techsters. Frazier’s averages of 17 points and seven rebounds lead her team in both categories. Look for Frazier to be a huge force down low if Louisiana Tech wants to get its first road win of the season.

Senior forward Rafaelle Souza has been named as a semifinalist for the MAC Hermann Trophy honoring the national player of the year in soccer, the National Soccer Coaches Association of America announced on Tuesday. Souza is one of 15 players to make the cut as a semifinalist for the annual award and is the first Ole Miss player to be announced as a semifinalist in the history of the program. That list will be pared down to three finalists through a national vote of collegiate soccer coaches before the winner is announced at the Missouri Athletic Club of St. Louis annual banquet in January. Soccer fans can also let their collective voice be heard by voting for their favorite player on the MAC’s website hosted by LockerDome, starting Thursday, Dec. 5, and running through Tuesday, Dec. 10. “What a fantastic honor for Rafa to be nominated alongside some of the best players
from some historic programs in college soccer,” said Ole Miss head coach Matthew Mott. “We’re very proud of her and her accomplishments this season and really throughout her career. She’s certainly very deserving of this recognition.” Souza helped lead the Rebels to a record-setting season in 2013 as Ole Miss went 16-5-2 on the year and spent seven weeks ranked in the top 25 nationally, reaching as high as No. 22 in the polls. The 16 wins was the most in program history as Ole Miss advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the fifth time ever and advanced past the first round for the second time in program history. The Rebels hosted Jackson State in the first round of the NCAA Tournament, marking the first time Ole Miss had ever hosted NCAA Tournament play in soccer, before falling at third-ranked Florida State in the second round by a score of 3-1. The Seminoles
are the top-seeded team in the region for the NCAA Tournament and advanced to the College Cup and will be one of four teams left playing for the national championship this weekend. Souza notched an SECleading 22 goals on the season and ranks third nationally in goals scored with one weekend of competition left and only four teams left competing. She also ranks second nationally in points with 50 after adding six assists for the Rebels this season and leading the SEC in points. Of her 22 goals this season, six of them were game winners for the Rebels, while she also turned in seven multiple-goal matches on the year. Her best performance came with a hat trick against Jackson State in the NCAA Tournament. Souza is now the all-time leader at Ole Miss in both career goals (44) and points (108) after three seasons of competition.

Notebook: Players emerging for Ole Miss hoops BY TYLER BISCHOFF email@example.com

Jarvis Summers drives with the ball during a basketball game against Troy in Oxford Nov. 8.
Ole Miss came into this season needing a No. 2 scorer, and it has found not one but two players answering the call. Junior guard Jarvis Summers is leading the team with 15.7 points per game. He’s been more aggressive this season, taking nearly five more field goal attempts and three more free throw attempts per 40 minutes. He also improved his shooting from 40 percent in his first two years to 54 percent this season. He’s been much better on the pick and roll, too. Last year on 165 Summers pick and rolls, Ole Miss scored .72 points per possession, according to Synergy Sports. This season his efficiency has surged to 1.20 per possession on 30 possessions. Joining Summers’ surge in production is sophomore guard
Derrick Millinghaus. He is second on the team with 15.3 points per game on a team-leading 13.7 shots per game. Overall, Millinghaus’ tendencies haven’t changed much from last season; he is just getting nearly twice the minutes. He has raised his field goal percentage from 34 percent last year to 42 percent this season. The two guards are both point guards, but due to their offensive surge, Andy Kennedy is playing them together, with Summers moving to the shooting guard position. Playing them together allows Ole Miss to have two dangerous scorers on the perimeter even when Marshall Henderson is on the bench. Summers scored six points against Georgia Tech; otherwise both players have reached double digits in every game. Ole Miss is 23-5 dating back to last

year when either Summers or Millinghaus scores in double figures. Cox stepping up Junior center Demarco Cox was named the MVP of the Barclays Classic, as he averaged 11 points, 10.5 rebounds and two blocks per game. But Cox isn’t making defenses pay with stellar post moves; he is simply benefiting from his teammates’ passing and his ability to bully his way to offensive rebounds. Cox made nine shots during the two games in Brooklyn. Five of those baskets were assisted, while the other four came off of offensive rebounds. Ole Miss isn’t asking Cox to post anybody up, but they are asking him to make defenses pay when his man leaves to help on driving guards. Perez making progress Sophomore forward Anthony Perez is emerging. He is shooting 41 percent from the field and 40 percent on threes. Although he is shooting just 4.8 times per game, it is a significant improvement from his 33 percent field goal shooting and 23 percent 3-point shooting of last season. His rebounding per 40 minutes is slightly down from last season, but he has grabbed big rebounds late in Ole Miss’ two close games that helped seal up victories. The important part of that is Perez is playing in the closing minutes of tight games. Kennedy is trusting Perez to play in crucial moments. Kennedy has praised Perez’s potential since he came to Oxford, but his game lacked aggression and confidence. Now, he is playing with both and could be a critical part of the rotation — of guards and forwards — moving forward. Tough road ahead Ole Miss is in the midst of a tough stretch. They played two teams from power conferences last week and will continue that streak this week as they travel to play Kansas State on Thursday then host 14th-ranked Oregon on Sunday. Both games will be on ESPNU. Then, following finals week, Ole Miss will host Middle Tennessee State. Although MTSU isn’t from a power conference, it has knocked off Ole Miss each of the last two seasons. We’ll learn a lot about Ole Miss over the next three games, especially against Oregon as Kansas State and Middle Tennessee State seem to have taken a step back this season.
