Satisfaction, disappointment among reactions at Walnut By Laurence Leveille and Dara McBride



espite efforts by the mayor and Syracuse police to put an end to MayFest on Euclid Avenue, the fourth year of the block party continued on. Students and police noticed a tamer atmosphere than in previous years. A fear of police enforcement and the universitysanctioned MayFest in Walnut Park drawing people away from Euclid could have caused the change. “I expected a lot of people to really rebel against it,” said Lauren Thomas, sophomore magazine journalism major partying in the 400 block of Euclid Avenue. “But people are really playing it safe.” The day got a slow start, and parties picked up around 4 p.m.

pproximately 5,000 to 6,000 students attended MayFest 2010 in Walnut Park on Friday afternoon, said Chief Tony Callisto of the Department of Public Safety. The event exceeded expectations, but not everyone appreciated the university’s efforts to plan a controlled MayFest. Although many freshmen said they were content with the event, students who had experienced previous MayFests said they did not feel it lived up to their memory. Many upperclassmen expressed disappointment in MayFest being different than it was in previous years. “One of my friends said we feel like we’re in a pig pen. We’re just like cows being herded place to place,” said Magnolia Salas,




he drafting of soldiers to fight in Vietnam brought the hollowing pain of death and loss of brothers, friends and classmates to thousands of Syracuse University students in 1970. “You picked them up and you took them!” said Robert McClure, a young professor at the time of the protests, recounting the anger students felt toward the draft. “To get widespread social protest, the pain has to be meaningful and deep and widespread. And these were students all across the country, and the issues involved were all across the country, and the protests were all across the country — real demonstrable pain,” he said. Forty years ago this pain led to nationwide protests across college campuses, sometimes leading to deadly altercations between protesters and authorities. Although the United States is fighting two wars today, mass demonstrations against the war are absent from college campuses, partly because there is no draft. But students’ access to instant communication makes the potential for demonstration greater. “There was a vigorous, bitter divide in the general electorate over civil rights to start with and then the war, which was based on a draft that ended up touching the lives of millions,” said McClure, a political science professor. The Vietnam War, which resulted in the death of approximately 60,000 American soldiers, was much more intrusive and significant in the lives of most college students than today’s wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, which are fought by a volunteer army, McClure said. McClure cited a piece of public opinion research that concluded the public’s opposition to war is directly correlated to the number of dead soldiers. Accordingly, student opposition to the war has been limited given the much smaller number of deaths in today’s wars, he said. Combined casualties for Iraq and Afghanistan stood at 5,442 as of April 30, in comparison to the 60,000 American deaths during Vietnam, according to the U.S. Defense Department’s website. Student protests of the scale and intensity of those in 1970 are likely to occur only if students feel the same intensity of pain from something, he said. Mehrzad Boroujerdi, director of the Middle Eastern studies department, was outspoken against the invasion of Iraq, holding forums in 2002 and 2003 to discuss the reasons and implications for going to war. The student activism was nowhere close to the activism of 1970, he said. Students participated in several local protests alongSEE VIETNAM PAGE 7

Police investigate failed car bomb

Law enforcement officials are further investigating the failed car bomb that caused Times Square to be evacuated Saturday night, The New York Times reported. They are currently reviewing surveillance footage that shows a white man in his 40s walking away from the area where the bomb was found inside a dark green Nissan Pathfinder. The man was shown looking nervously over his shoulder and then removing a layer of clothing. Investigators are examining eight bags of a mysterious, granular substance that was found in a gun locker inside the vehicle. A police bomb squad unit utilized an exploding charge to open the locker on Sunday afternoon. Inside they found the substance and a metal pot with wires and M-88 firecrackers. The unknown substance has the look and feel of fertilizer, which hints at the possibility that explosive materials were contained in the bomb. Police and FBI officials continue to investigate possible suspects and thus far have ruled out Taliban involvement.

Leibovitz talks about most recent works By Brittney Davies Copy Editor

Minutes after the audience in Hendricks Chapel caught sight of her Thursday night, Annie Leibovitz was taking photographs. With a simple point-and-shoot, she snapped shots of the crowd as it settled down, amid a shout or two of “We love you, Annie!” A shot of the crowd that seeped out the chapel doors. Click. A shot of the center balcony, also full. Click. A shot of the side balconies, with about 25 people standing in each back row and two people on each step in the aisles. Click, click. Leibovitz put away the camera to sit through two introductions — one to wrap up the 2009-10 University Lectures series and the other summarizing the numerous high points in her photography career, which includes the iconic Rolling Stone cover of John Lennon wrapped around Yoko Ono and the Vanity Fair cover of a preg-

nant Demi Moore. Kelly Rodoski, communications manager for the Office of News Services, said the event was probably the highest attended of this season’s University Lectures. “The chapel seats 1,100 and we’re over capacity,” she said. “People were standing outside the door.” Wearing classic Annie Leibovitz black, the celebrated photographer alternated between personal anecdotes and selections from her book “At Work.” On a towering projection screen, photographs from her career complemented the stories she told — a trip with her kids to Niagara Falls, family car rides from her youth, the three weeks she spent photographing a group of dancers in the woods. “The outdoors became my studio,” she said as landscape photographs transitioned onto the screen. Leibovitz also displayed a current personal project, titled “Pilgrimage.”

“No people in the pictures. No one’s talking back,” she said, introducing photos taken at the homes of Emily Dickinson, Sigmund Freud and Georgia O’Keeffe. Also shown was Virginia Woolf’s writing studio, where “the light danced along the desk,” Leibovitz said. A photograph of the river Woolf drowned herself in followed. Instead of discussing some of the iconic images she is known for, Leibovitz focused on more current work, such as photographing Queen Elizabeth II in Buckingham Palace. She also revealed her favorite picture — but only if she had to pick one because she normally tells people she likes her entire body of work. The photo was taken of her mother. “There’s a relationship in this picture,” she said. “My mother was looking at me as if the camera wasn’t there.” Leibovitz said she focused on her family as she showed photos of her niece, Samantha, a senior in the S.I.

‘ManifestA: Young Women, Feminism, and the Future’ still relevant after 10 years

was 10 years old when Jennifer Baumgardner and Amy Richards wrote “ManifestA: Young Women, Feminism, and the Future.” I was 17 years old when I heard them speak about their feminist trademark at Barnard College’s Young Women’s Leadership Institute. I was 20 years old when I finally got around to reading the damn thing. I’m a self-proclaimed feminist and women’s studies major, therefore, sinking my teeth into this piece of literature wasn’t exactly a turning point in my ideology, rather, it was way overdue. It didn’t help me realize for the first time that feminism rocks, and it wasn’t my initial awakening to all things feminist. It did, however, make me excited about the future of feminism and all of the potential it has in a brand-new decade.  Reading “ManifestA” for the first time 10 years after its initial publication by Farrar, Straus and Giroux was interestingly eye-opening because of its relevance in today’s society. While 10 years passing has provided enough time to make many strides in the women’s rights movement, we’re still dealing with a

krystie yandoli

not a barbie girl lot of issues that Baumgardner and Richards address in their book.   Reading through Baumgardner and Richards’ theories and critiques provoked questions that I would’ve never otherwise thought of: How can we get to equality if we’re having difficulty defining it? How can we use “women’s magazines” like Glamour and Good Housekeeping to push a more feminist agenda? What’s the best way to disconnect different generations of feminists and make sure they’re on the same page?  I’m proud to say that I started and finished the 10-year anniversary edition of “ManifestA” in one sitting. The authors didn’t leave me with much of a choice — their compelling arguments, inquiries and analyses left me wanting

For more, visit

more. Luckily, I can hit up and order “Grassroots: A Field Guide for Feminist Activism,” Baumgardner and Richards’ second co-written book. Baumgardner and Richards include a brandnew introduction in the 10th anniversary edition and express to readers the importance of their own individual efforts.         “Alice Rossi wrote in The Feminist Papers that ‘the public heroines of one generation are the private heroines of the next.’ The late poet June Jordan once talked about the first time she realized she disagreed with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. — and was liberated in that moment to be as important to civil rights in her community and life as Dr. King was. Both sentiments ask us, all of us, to do the big thing feminism invites us to do — to recognize our power to create social justice in our own unique ways.”   Reading these powerful words was not exactly my sole, defining moment of feminist enlightenment, but I did experience a manifesta awakening, 10 years later than the generation before me.  Baumgardner and Richards helped to define

a third wave of feminism and guided young women in a particular direction in terms of important issues and questions that need to be answered. With 10 years of progress under our belt, “ManifestA” is still relevant today because of the continuous fight in the women’s rights movement. This dynamic duo in feminist history created a 13-point agenda with a purpose to gain equal rights in the United States. One of the most important suggestions to be aware of is “#12: To acknowledge that, although feminists may have disparate values, we share the same goal of equality, and of supporting one another in our efforts to gain the power to make our own choices.”   This is a critical realization for all those involved in social movements regarding equality; it is important not to lose sight in the serious matter of personal choice and America’s most vital philosophy of freedom.   Krystie Yandoli is a sophomore women’s studies major.

Soliloquy to readers: saying sayonara to sophomore year


éjà vu: I’m left sitting in the same seat at Starbucks on a Sunday afternoon, except this time to write my final column for the semester. What started out as my attempt for a glimmer of self-exploration has manifested into something totally different. These moments of self-identity crises have been exchanged for bouts of clarity and advice through friends, professors and even strangers. So for this last time, I’d like to pay homage to Mary Schmich at the Chicago Tribune and her famous June 1997 column, “Advice, like youth, probably wasted on the young.” It’s been more than 10 years since her column was published, but somehow, her words of wisdom have stuck with me. I hope that what I’m about to write will be half as useful for the future Syracuse years ahead. Thus, I begin my soliloquy: what I learned from my journey of self-exploration during the college sophomore slump: • Have brunch every Sunday. It’s a great end to your weekend and a refreshing beginning to your week. • Add mimosas for extra kick. • Make a day trip to the cemetery. Take photographs. Enjoy the scenery. Bask under perfect weather. • During times of stress, listen to Pavement. Over and over. Until the angst numbs you. • Visit 2nd Story Books on Westcott Street. Order a cup of Joe and relax. • Go on a hike. Doesn’t matter where. Just go. • Watch the leaves change colors during autumn. • Forget Wegmans and visit the local co-op grocery store. • Sit in Crouse College during the chiming of the bells. • During meteor showers, invite your friends, bring some blankets and go to Thornden Park. Even in sub-zero degree weather, it’s well

my ultimate quest worth the wait. • Do Sunday brunches. • Stroll around campus with music blasting through your headphones. Your view of the school will be changed. • Syra-Juice. Just go. Order the 5 Star Club. • Go downtown. • Visit the New York State Fair. • Ignore freezing temperatures and brutal winds, build a snowman instead. • Cheer for the basketball and football team. • Ditch the dining center, wine and dine instead. • But when you are in the dining center, be creative with what you make. • Couch surf and WWOOF when you have the chance. • Go on a Habitat for Humanity trip. Doesn’t matter where. Just go. • Say ‘thank you’ to the nice people who work for Food Services. • Jog to the top of the Hill and scream at the top of your lungs. Pure liberation. • Enjoy the lunch buffet at Samrat Indian Restaurant. It is perfection. • See The Fly perform at least once. • Sit on the Quad and people watch. • Take a nap under the sunshine. But really, don’t overlook the Sunday brunches. They do wonders.

now a clinical professor of dermatology at New York University, said researchers of the study polled more than 400 undergraduates ages 18 to 25 in the northeastern United States and found more than half used tanning beds, according to an article on Rigel told CNN the tanning addiction is an issue that needs to be addressed and changed. “We have to attack the public’s perception of this just like we would attack alcoholism and drug use,” Rigel said. Researchers used language similar to screening quizzes for alcohol and substance abuse in the study. They then asked the respondents about their indoor tanning, as well as the amount of alcohol and other substances they had been using. “Treating an underlying mood disorder may be a necessary step in reducing skin cancer risk among those who frequently tan indoors,” the authors of the study wrote in the research summary.

The risk of melanoma increases by 75 percent when people start using tanning beds before turning 30 years old, according to a study in Lancet Oncology, a monthly journal that publishes research articles in clinical oncology. From the study, the research team concluded people who tanned also frequently used alcohol and marijuana and were also prone to symptoms of anxiety, Rigel said. There may be multiple reasons those with addictive personalities may be drawn to indoor tanning, according to the study. Repeated exposure to UV light might have similar results to those experienced by substance users. These results include increased relaxation, socialization and an overall improvement in their general mood and outlook. Despite the positive results indoor tanning may bring, Rigel said it was a dangerous way for students to seek relief. “We haven’t convinced people in theory that 100 percent of people should be wearing sunscreen and zero percent of people should be going to tanning beds,” Rigel said. He said he encourages more behavioral scientists and addiction experts to find a solution to stop the excessive use of beds among younger people. Karen Heitzman, a physician specializing in internal medicine in Manlius, N.Y., said she believes most addictive specialists notice this link, especially among students and young adults. “The only time I ever council people about tanning is when I go do the high school physi-

cals,” Heitzman said. “All of the students want to be tan for prom.” She said she rarely deals with people who tan because the majority of patients she treats are from an older demographic. She said tanning addiction is a problem among younger people today and should be looked at more closely, especially around university areas. The government is now treating tanning as an addictive substance, as a new tax had been put into place, similar to the tax on cigarettes, alcohol and the highly debated obesity tax, Heitzman said. The Obama administration announced with the many changes made in the new health care bill that the cost of tanning would be altered. The administration wanted to impose the tax to help fund the $940 billion health care overhaul, according to CNN’s updates on health care reform. A 10 percent tax on receiving indoor tanning services was imposed, and the new policy is expected to generate $2.7 billion over the next 10 years. The AAD researchers pointed to the large amount of expected revenue from the tanning tax as a sign that tanning addiction is a widespread problem, according to an article on The research team at AAD also provided many suggestions to prevent skin cancer. Among these reasons, the authors said using sunscreen, scheduling regular check-ups and staying away from all salons were important steps. They also suggested further counseling for those who have tried to quit and have not yet been able to kick the habit.

from Cazenovia. “I was glad that she focused on her more recent body of work, though I feel like she kept flip-flopping between, ‘OK, we’re talking about my child’s trip and now we’re talking about the Queen of England,’”

O’Mara said. “But from other artist talks I’ve been to, she was very articulate, she knew what she was talking about, she was very concise, didn’t meander. So overall, I thought she was good.”


Researchers liken college students’ frequent tanning to drug, alcohol addiction


By Claire McFarland Contributing Writer

espite the recent temperature changes and more regular sunshine, many college students continue to use indoor tanning booths to get their UV “fix.” A recent study published on April 19 in The Archives of Dermatology showed a “fix” is exactly how many college students should look at their frequent tanning sessions. Researchers found a strong correlation between tanning and addictive behaviors similar to drug and alcohol abuse. According to researchers at the American Academy of Dermatology, roughly 1 million Americans, 70 percent of whom are women and girls, visit tanning salons each day. Indoor tanning among U.S. college students is linked to addiction, anxiety and substance use, according to the study conducted recently by AAD. Darrel Rigel, a former president of AAD and

side Syracuse residents in 2002 and 2003. Participation at these protests never involved more than 70 SU students, according to articles from The Daily Orange. The lack of activism against the war in Iraq was the result of a widespread sense of helplessness and frustration still present in America after Sept. 11, Boroujerdi said. “This was a country that was feeling some existential angst as a result of terrorism,” he said. “I think there was a sense of complacency, a feeling this was going to happen no matter what.” By 2003 the war in Afghanistan had also been more successful than anticipated, so students and the general public assumed Iraq would play out in the same manner, quickly and with few casualties, Boroujerdi said. But the relatively small amount of student activism in response to the invasion of Iraq does not reflect a permanent decrease in activism on university campuses, he said. Boroujerdi pointed to the protests in Iran last summer as examples of how educated youth continue to rally in enormous groups when they are angry and disenfranchised from the government. “Campuses still happen to be the hotbeds of protest in other regions, and it’s natural. You have a numerical concentration of people, and you have intellectual concentration,” he said. The charismatic leadership of SU students, such as David Ifshin, student body president and the leader of the Vietnam protests at SU, might be present in today’s student body, said Larry Elin, a professor of television, radio and film. But students today have not taken up a cause to rally around in numbers comparable to 1970. Ifshin’s daughter, Chloe Ifshin, a junior television, radio and film major at SU, grew up hearing

a sophomore entrepreneurship and emerging enterprises major. “It kills the mood when there’s so much enforcement. Just let us have our day. We work hard all year.” Salas did not feel like this was a real MayFest with police patrol and sectioned activities, she said. And she did not understand the imposed restrictions because she thought it would only increase the likelihood of students becoming rowdy, she said. “Where is everyone? Last year on Euclid (Avenue) it was hard to walk,” Salas said. Having MayFest on Walnut would not keep students from partying on Euclid, in her opinion, she said. “They’re going to be on Euclid later today.” MayFest, a Syracuse University event since 2007, used to take place on Euclid Avenue on the same day as SU Showcase. But on Oct. 23, the administration reinstated classes for this year’s SU Showcase. Student Association began meeting with the administration the Monday following the announcement to discuss the possibility of creating a day for students in place of SU Showcase. The final outcome was a day dedicated to students in Walnut Park, named MayFest, which was split into three sections: concerts, food and beverages, and beer for students over 21. The administration reported the event went on without problems or arrests on Walnut. “Last year it was crazy. It’s a totally different environment,” said Linton Borden, a senior philosophy major. “This is cool for what it is, but it’s not MayFest, and it’s more controlled than it used to be “ Evan Sherman, a junior in the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry, said the event was boring compared with past MayFests on Euclid, but at least SA and University Union were trying. “It’s an organized event.

about her father’s devotion to ending the war in Vietnam. Ifshin died of cancer in 1996. Chloe said she wished she had lived in an era when she could fight for something greater than herself. “I’m passionate about the environment and about human rights. But there’s a difference between knowledge and action,” Chloe said. “I think what could make me get up is if something was directly going to impact my little world, which is kind of sad. I don’t think I could have fought for other people the way my dad did. Those were his friends being drafted. Those were his frat brothers.” Chloe said she thinks the relationship between her and her parents’ generations also makes today’s students less active because protesting and social movements were always something she associated with their past and not her own life. “We think of our parents’ generation of being really revolutionary and active,” she said. “These movements are something we associate with our parents. It’s not as much of a rebellious act for us. It applies to feminism as well. People fought for it, and we think of it as a personal choice not to continue fighting — but it’s really apathy.” Chloe used the protests against this year’s commencement speaker, Jamie Dimon, to demonstrate how students will protest only if the issue is something they can actually change. “There was a definitive goal, ‘We want a different commencement speaker,’ and that was appealing to people,” she said. “If we don’t feel we’re capable of change, then we don’t try.” Elin pointed to a major difference between American society of 1970 and of today. There was a vast generational gap between students of the 1970s and their parents, a divide that is not as apparent today, Elin said. The students protesting the war did not see the justification for bombing and invading an impoverished, small Southeast Asian country, Elin said. Students were looking critically at the beliefs of American policy the generation

before them had taken for granted. “We thought we could see the evildoings of our own country in a way that the older generation couldn’t or refused to see,” Elin said. Were SU students to take up a cause en masse, the potential for quick and enormous gatherings would vastly expand due to the advent of social media and cell phones. Students today have a greater ability to form movements than students did in the 1970s, Elin said. Now is a greater time than ever to form youth movements around the world, he said. Elin, a freshman at SU during the Vietnam protests, said simply being around people who were involved was infectious. “I was as dumb as a brick when I got here as to what was out there in the world,” Elin said. “Then I was just being bombarded with these new stimuli, people and ideas.” Although social media provides the space and method for communication between protesters, Student Association President Jon Barnhart said he does not think a Facebook group or event page is an effective method for inciting outrage or passion. He referenced the quick response of students on Facebook to the cancellation of MayFest in October, which had 5,000 members in 24 hours, he said. “Seeing someone else’s energy is what builds your own,” Barnhart said. “It’s very difficult to get excited over a Facebook group.” Although SA led many of the student protests during the 1970s, Barnhart said it would take many students from a very diverse set of backgrounds coming to him about an issue for SA to lead something as serious as a student protest. But Barnhart believes there are a lot of issues that need to be addressed through activism, such as race relations, women’s rights and the new immigration bill passed in Arizona that makes it legal for police to check the papers of anyone who looks like an illegal immigrant, he said. “In a lot of ways I feel we’ve backtracked,” he said. “We need to make sure these rights are here to stay

everywhere,” he said. “You can’t compare it, and it’s really not a party over here.” The additional attraction of free food and live entertainment was a highlight for students who attended. By the time RJD2 performed toward the end of the afternoon, the area in front of the stage on Walnut was crowded with students dancing, while others sat under trees listening to the music. “RJD2 is my favorite producer, so I don’t want to say that this has been my favorite MayFest, but it kind of has,” said Joseph Collier, a senior electrical engineering major. Collier had also been to Euclid and had fun there, but he came to Walnut for the band, he said. Those who planned the event did not share the opinion that MayFest was a disappointment. “This is fabulous,” Chancellor Nancy Cantor said. “I’m getting a lot of positive feedback from students.” Cantor said she had been on Euclid earlier in the day and things looked under control. She said she saw students “having fun on their porches.” “This is just great,” Cantor said. “I love the atmosphere.” SA President John Barnhart said he was pleased with how smoothly the event went and that there were no problems on Euclid, other than the accident earlier that morning involving a student on a bicycle. “I’ve been looking forward to this, exactly what’s been happening here all day,” Barnhart said. “I see exactly what we envisioned. A lot of people said they were just going to show up, get their drink and leave, and I see people staying and enjoying themselves. And that’s all we can ask for at this point.” Callisto estimated the peak of student attendance at one given time was between 3,500 and 4,000, he said. “It’s a festive atmosphere,” he said. “Students are really doing well. We’re just here in case anybody needs us — not trying to be an overwhelming presence. But if there were something

to happen, we’d be able to handle it quickly.” There were about 12 officers patrolling the Walnut Park area and another 12 on Euclid, Callisto said. There were no more police officers in the alcohol area of Walnut than the non-alcoholic area, and police reported no problems, he said. “As far as the activity on Euclid, it’s been pretty minimal. The majority of folks actually came here, and there’s a few small parties going on Euclid, but that’s no different than any other nice-weather Friday,” Callisto said. Greg Victory, a communications and rhetorical studies professor, volunteered to hand out bracelets for the beer section. He said there were not any problems in the alcoholic area of Walnut. Those 21 or older with a valid SU or ESF ID and driver’s license or passport were allowed entrance to the beer section. Student IDs were scanned at entrances that lead to the alcohol area and were only allowed admittance once. Those who came between 1:30 p.m. and 3 p.m. were given bracelets with four beer tickets. Those who came between 3 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. had two tickets. Should a student leave the area, he or she was allowed another beer if tickets still remained. Leah Goldman, a senior magazine journalism major, came late and was allowed two beers. She and her friends agreed four would have been a sufficient amount of beer but said getting two was not worth it. The group planned to go to Euclid once they left Walnut at the end of the event, she said. Despite the fact MayFest was relocated from Euclid Avenue, there is still hope that the event will return back to the way it used to be. “If the student body can prove that we can have this day responsibly and respect the university, community and neighborhoods,” said Kim DiNicola, a junior music education major, then maybe MayFest can become what it once was.”


and they’re progressing. But what do we have showing we support them — a Facebook group?” In spite of this, the Syracuse campus continues to be a significant source of civic activism in more discreet ways. Pam Heintz, the associate vice president for engagement and director of the Center for Public and Community Service, oversees much of the student volunteerism on campus. The number of students volunteering for academic causes around SU was about 7,000 last year, and the number of community co-curricular services was 2,500, totaling 9,500, Heintz said. The number of hours put into community service totaled approximately 700,000, she said. “The students we see are very committed to the work they’re doing, and I believe, for many of them, this is their way of making the world a better place,” she said. “And I believe that for some students, depending on what the next big issue is, (they) will find themselves becoming activists.” This generation of college students has shown the most sustained commitment to stay active in volunteer work, Heintz said. She also thinks students today are more aware of the social injustices, having grown up with the legacy of movements like civil rights, women’s rights and the Vietnam protests, she said. Ultimately, McClure said, students today and the students 40 years ago are more similar than they are different. Young people will always be the most passionate about whatever cause or direction society is taking at the moment, he said, because they have no memory of issues before then. “So could it happen here that students would become organized and active?” he said. “Of course. No one would have likely predicted in 1960 that students would close the campus down in 1970. It’s the good and scary part of college students. They’re just sitting around waiting for a good cause to raise hell about, if the right conditions present themselves.”

hit whom, Bulinski said. Four fire trucks and an ambulance arrived at the scene after the collision, said Talya Shlang, a senior public relations major who saw the aftermath of the accident. Schmidt only sustained minor injuries, despite not wearing a helmet, because the cop car was nearly stopped at the time of the collision, Shoff said. He suspects Schmidt was in the process of braking as well, Shoff said. Schoff said he did not think Schmidt was wearing a helmet, which may have been one of the reasons why he was taken to the hospital even though his injuries were minor. Matt Smith, a senior finance major who lives on the 300 block of Euclid, said he saw the aftermath of the collision. Schmidt was sitting on the curb and did not appear to be badly injured, Smith said. At the time of the collision, the police were already on Euclid patrolling to enforce city ordinances during MayFest. Shlang said she thinks there was a cop car on every block, as well as many cops on bicycles riding up and down Euclid. Police roped off Euclid from Sumner to Livington avenues with caution tape and redirected traffic so they could investigate further.  “At first I thought this was about MayFest,” Shlang said. “I thought they were just coming up with a reason to rope off the street.”

By then, lawns along Euclid were filled with students drinking and enjoying the afternoon. Most students were careful to keep the drinking on the lawn and not file into the sidewalks or streets with open containers. For the most part, police were not ticketing many students. As long as they followed city ordinances, they did not have to worry. Mark Duby, an officer from the Syracuse Police Department, said he was mainly warning students about noise violations. As long as students turned down the music after a warning he wouldn’t issue them a ticket, he said. “We’re not here because we want to be,” Duby said. “We don’t want to ruin the good time.” Police wrote only three noise ordinance violations and two open-container violations for students on Euclid during MayFest, according to police records. There was also one arrest at around 3:30 p.m., said Lt. Richard Shoff. The arrest on the 400 block of Euclid occurred when police attempted to cite John Jimenez, a junior in the School of Information Studies, for noise violation. The student would not give police the necessary information to complete the citation paperwork, including his name, Social Security number and date of birth, so police arrested the student, Shoff said. He was charged with resisting arrest, according to the police report. “There were no punches thrown,” Shoff said, “but he was less than cooperative.” Students were mostly cooperative when police approached them, Shoff said. Shoff was not around for last year’s MayFest but said from what he had heard, this year’s was easier to control and had fewer people than he expected. Despite Shoff’s evaluation that the party was not out of control, some non-student passersby in the neighborhood said they were disappointed with how the police were handling the party.  A pedestrian from the neighborhood said the party was quieter than last year’s, but she did not think MayFest was very well controlled. The woman declined to provide her name. “The true spirits still came out,” she said. “Police are just staying and letting students be students.” Some students said they think the partying got started late because people were afraid police would be cracking down. “Earlier, people were scared to come out,” said Kevin Beargie, a junior mechanical engineering major. “But once they saw people out,

they started coming out themselves.” But some students said they noticed police were relatively lenient Friday. Jeremy Hyman, a senior information technology major, said police gave the party he was attending four noise ordinance violation warnings by 3:50 p.m. but never wrote a ticket. The people whose house he was at had just been told to make sure everyone at the party was over 21 or the party would be shut down, he said. Monica Hedden, a senior advertising design major, said she was confused about the cops’ inconsistency with warning students or telling them to tone down the partying. Hedden and four of her friends began playing beer pong on their lawn at 11 a.m. One police officer came up to group and was very friendly, she said. But when the next set of officers came around, they told the girls to take down their table right away.  “There was absolutely no reason, they just told us to get rid of it,” she said. “There were five of us, and we were all 21.” Hedden and her friends weren’t breaking any city ordinances. All five students were 21 years old, and they were staying on their own property. Hedden also said the police told her if more than 40 people showed up the police would issue serious consequences. “We weren’t doing anything wrong, it’s just the anticipation of what could happen,” she said. Duby, the SPD officer, said the police hadn’t been told to target houses with beer pong tables. He also said police were expecting the parties to pick up after the MayFest celebrations in Walnut Park ended at 5:30 p.m. Kate Ready, a senior public relations major, did notice the parties beginning to pick up as people left Walnut Park.  “I heard after 3 p.m. they were only giving out two beers, so I think people kind of came over here as the day was ending, and I can see that this might become a more rowdy area as the night progresses,” Ready said. Although Block Party began in the Dome at 7:30 p.m., the parties on Euclid had died down but were continuing as of 8:15.  “For the most part, I have to say (Mayor) Stephanie Miner has made her point,” Ready said. “She’s aligned herself with the people who live in this area fully, and that’s respectable. I want to add that I think this is a really good tradition that people come out and they celebrate being a senior and your last year at Syracuse.” — Asst.

The event in Walnut was met with satisfaction by some freshmen and disappointment by those who had experienced past MayFests. The Euclid block party was tamer than in previous years, partially due to increased police enforcement of city ordinances.

SU seniors showcase fashion By Rebecca Saxon Staff Writer

ben addonizio | staff photographer Drake performs for a sold-out crowd Friday night during the 2010 Block Party concert at the Carrier Dome. This year’s installment broke records by having the first sold-out show in Block Party history, selling 9,584 tickets. Drake was accompanied by k-os, Francis and The Lights, and N*E*R*D. Drake made it a point to interact with the audience multiple times throughout the show.

et’s count all the people Drake called out on Friday night at the Carrier Dome. There was a shout-out to his doctor, who told him not to perform due to medical reasons. He performed anyway. The doctor had told him it might not be a good idea to sing at Block Party, Drake said to audience. Drake responded, “You must not understand, I got my mother f***ing family waiting at Syracuse.” One.

There was the fan that made a cardboard cut-out in the shape of Drake’s head, similar to the Jim Boeheim heads used at Syracuse University men’s basketball games. “What the f*** is this? Give me that sh**,” Drake said. “I look f***in’ retarded. If you were in grade three, you would get an A-plus.” Two. There was the girl he brought up on stage. “You might get touched on, kissed on, sucked on, licked on,” he said. After the whole crowd booed the girl for living in Buffalo, Drake

started to dance with her. He kissed her neck, turned her around and kissed both her cheeks, and then went in for one on the lips — that is, until he turned away at the last moment, drawing substantial laughter from the audience. Three. There was the Carrier Dome staffer who supposedly warned Drake about the curfew through his earpiece. “This is far from over,” Drake said before beginning his song “Over.” Four.

There were the fans he called out toward the end of the show. “Who’s coming home with me tonight?” he said as he started pointing to different females in the crowd. “You — your friend got nice hair, is it hers?” Then he pointed to another girl who was at the concert with her boyfriend: “Oh, you’re going home with him? I ain’t gonna f*** with him.” He quickly pointed to the next girl: “And you, with your titties poppin’ out.” The girl adjusted her shirt. “No, don’t pull it up. I like the

This was it. After years of work and preparation, it was the moment senior fashion design students had been waiting for. Featuring a wide variety of styles that ranged from 1940s fashion to tomboy outfits, the seniors displayed their final collections at the College of Visual and Performing Arts’ 29th annual Senior Fashion Show Thursday and Friday in Goldstein Auditorium. The Fashion Association of Design Students supported the event. This year’s production was relatively stress-free, said Maxi Roberts, a junior in VPA. “It’s been running very smoothly so far,” she said. The dressing rooms were frenzied and hectic before Friday’s 7:30 p.m. start. A few models stood anxiously in elegant attire and gossiped about the weekend’s events. All the models in the show were SU students. Other models and designers flitted around as the designers made last-minute makeup adjustments and fitting changes. Other models received tips from Raquel Boni, the model trainer and cocoordinator. Boni has worked with SU students for seven years. She said her job was to hone their sex appeal and confidence so they could really embody the designers’ looks on the runway. “These girls all have it in them. It’s my job to bring that out,” Boni said.       Lady Sara Armet, a senior fashion design and fashion communications major, donned a blood-red garment as she prepared

Relatable acting carries ‘I Love You Because’ By Gregory Miller Staff Writer

Syracuse University Drama’s final show of the season, “I Love You Because,” charms with a powerful cast that easily tackles the themes of love in today’s world. Writers Joshua Salzman and Ryan Cunningham dubbed “I Love You Because” a modern-day musical love story. Consider it a 1990s sitcom put to a Broadway

soundtrack — “Friends” meets “42nd Street.” That wouldn’t be too far from reality, as it opened as an off-Broadway show in 2006, on Valentine’s Day no less. The plot of the show is simple: Love is difficult, and living in New York City only complicates that. Austin (Matthew Hazen McGuire) is a greeting card writer down on his luck after he finds his girlfriend cheating on him. Luckily, his broth-

er Jeff (Christian Leadley) decides it’s time for Austin to get back in the game. Meanwhile, Marcy (Angela Travins) has just ended her 27th relationship. Her friend Diana (Hannah Corneau) decides Marcy should find a horrible man to be her rebound. Thus, the four characters meet through the power of online Jewish dating and love begins its series of twists and turns. At first glance, the show’s prem-

ise seems a little overdone. We’ve all seen it before: Boy is lonely, boy meets girl, boy likes girl, girl likes boy, oh wait, no she doesn’t, oh wait, yes she does, happy ending. With a concept so engrained in American pop culture, the story could be all too familiar. But 20 minutes in, it’s clear the show is anything but. The script, to say the least, is a witty quintessential New York City

love story. The characters, the dialogue and even the sexual tension draw the audience to the show. And if that’s not enough, the music is catchy and cute with songs that sound more like a conversation with the audience than a lecture on love.

And if that’s not enough, the music is catchy and cute with songs that sound more like a conversation with the audience than a lecture on love. weak link. Matthew Hazen McGuire, a junior musical theater major, is endearing as Austin, the hopeless romantic. McGuire’s Austin is heartfelt, but controlled. The audience has a sense that McGuire is truly invested in the part. There’s a little bit of Austin in everyone — the guy who just wants someone to love him back but doesn’t know how to express himself beyond making grand similes. Thanks to McGuire, the musical’s theme of finding love where you least expect it is ever present. When in both triumph and confusion, McGuire belts — and he belts — and chills take over. Angela Travins, a junior musical theater

major, also scores big as the beautiful bohemian Marcy. Travins’ high notes are dreamy, and her chemistry with McGuire is totally believable. Christian Leadley, a junior musical theater major, portrays the character Jeff. He is lovable with f louncing hair and a charismatic smile that wins him his scenes. His musical numbers are some of the show’s most memorable. Leadley’s counterpart, junior musical theater major Hannah Corneau, also lights up the stage with her quick tongue and comedic timing. Her “Pirates of Penzance”-inspired “The Actuary Song” is hilarious and performed to a tee. But the strongest points for Corneau and Leadley appear when the two duke it out in a rough-and-tumble romantic roller coaster. Even the two smallest parts of the show — the New York City Man and New York City Woman — who each embody a number of characters, are completely captivating. Junior musical theater majors Gregory Dassonville and Mia Michelle McClain execute David Lowenstein’s engaging choreography and comedic pieces in scene-stealing fashion. Dassonville’s expressive eyebrows speak more than most mouths can, and McClain’s physical precision stands out. The set design by Julia Correia, a senior scenic design major, is dynamic and interesting with things moving and popping out of all directions. Senior lighting design major Evan Gannon’s light design is, in a word, breathtaking. The backlight over the skyline sets a tone for each scene in a way nothing else could. Ultimately, “I Love You Because” is a tremendous, feel-good success that is full of vibrancy and enchantment. gmillerj@

her models for the show. “It’s been a lot of trial and error. Designing is a strategic and full-time job,” Armet said. “This is not a show. It’s a performance, and I’m going out with a bang.” Avery Carter, a senior fashion design major, said in their senior years, student designers become more independent. “We’ve learned so much over the last three years, and now we’re able to apply all that and work on our own,” Carter said. The audience could expect nothing like it had ever seen before, said Karen Bakke, a fashion design professor. “The pieces run the gamut, from sportswear

to costume pieces and evening wear,” Bakke said. “I’ve had these students since freshman year, and it’s been great seeing them grow as designers.” The faint smell of beer wafted in as students from MayFest bought last-minute tickets.  Jeffrey Mayer, a fashion design professor, welcomed the audience to the show and explained the hard work the designers endured to make their imaginative drawings jump to life on the runway. The show opened with Kelly Bogan, a senior fashion design major who created an exhibit called “Metanoia.” Her show featured designs on dancers who executed incredibly graceful choreography, a mixture of ballet and interpretive dance. Soft music played as menswear, a new addition to the show, paraded down the runway. The male models donned everything from glamor-

ous fur shawls to all-black Rick Owens-esque Goth looks. Kaitlyn Carpenter, a senior fashion design major, opened her section with a stunning spin on the little black dress. Following her first looks were a floral, off-the-shoulder gown and other beautifully executed designs. As Michael Jackson’s voice blasted through the speakers, Armet’s collection came down the runway with luxurious velvet and animal prints. A vintage-inspired, elegant leopard coat stole the show. Armet picked up a bouquet of assorted flowers and kissed each and every model before exiting the stage. Senior student designer Narine Torozyan impressed the audience with her tomboyish look that had a distinct feminine flair. Her beautiful chiffon pieces were coupled with highwaited trousers for a retro look. Laura Vientos, another senior fashion design major, laid the glam on thick as her 1940s style aesthetic came to life in her gowns and fur capelets. Ashley Haydock, a senior fashion design major, had a feminine collection that stood out among the rest with its baby doll dresses in pastel pinks and purples and sleek hairstyles. Mayer took the stage again at the end of the event to close the show and present awards to the designers. Designers received recognition and scholarships based on their work. Carter took the award for the top senior in the program for her collection, GPA and scholastic achievements. As the lights came back on, audience members chatted about which collection they thought was strongest, and a few talked about the process these designers had to go through to be able to present such exquisite designs. “You’re never sure until you see it on the models,” Torozyan said, “but then it makes you realize that it’s what we are meant to do.”

On the fence M

By Jordan Walker Staff Writer

ay brings anguish to broadcast network executives as decision time begins and networks look at their current lineup and choose which shows will return in the fall. While some shows’ fates are a done deal, others remain in a gray area between contract renewal and the television graveyard. CBS is the network with the most shows on the fence this year because the network’s schedule has been more stable recently. All the CBS shows in question for renewal are solid performers in their time slots, making it harder to decide which shows should stay and which should go. Half of CBS’ comedy programming is up in the air, with “The New Adventures of Old Christine,” “Gary Unmarried,” “Accidentally on Purpose” and “Rules of Engagement” fighting for the small number of available half-hour time slots. “Rules of Engagement” has been a midseason replacement for years, so fans shouldn’t have to worry. “The New Adven-

tures of Old Christine” grabs the highest ratings out of the group, so it too should be safe for next fall. Even the renewal of CBS’ No. 1 comedy, “Two and a Half Men,” is in question. The show will probably be renewed if star Charlie Sheen returns. Sheen was charged with felony menacing, third-degree assault and criminal mischief and is currently in rehabilitation, according to the Los Angeles Times. On the CBS drama side, the Friday staple “Ghost Whisperer” is on the chopping block with fellow Friday dramas “Numb3rs” and “Medium.” “Numb3rs” has as little chance as ever of surviving because both leading stars took roles on pilots for different programs. “Medium” and “Ghost Whisperer” have an equal chance of coming back next season, but “Medium” is more likely to because of its syndication distribution potential. Despite it being a solid player on Sunday nights, “Cold Case” budgetary issues are putting it on the fence. For ABC, the big battle is between sci-fi

As major television networks look to prepare for fall season, some shows in jeopardy of cancellation

dramas “V” and “Flash Forward.” Both premiered in the fall with solid numbers, but the shows’ ratings have dropped considerably after they went on a four-month hiatus. With “Flash Forward” dipping below the 5-million-viewers mark during the 8 p.m. Thursday time slot, the alien invaders on “V” are looking like they’ll come out victorious in the end. For Fox, “Human Target” and “Lie to Me” will have executives scratching their heads. A decision on “Lie to Me” might not come this month because it is airing in the second half of its season’s episode during the summer. Industry insiders give “Human Target” a good chance of survival because it has gained a loyal following during its 13-week run on Wednesdays at 8 p.m. Over at NBC, there will be no problem removing the medical show “Trauma” at the end of the season. NBC’s other medical drama, “Mercy,” has a greater chance of sticking around because it has had a reasonably stable season in NBC’s eyes, but nothing is definite. The much adored “Chuck” will most likely see another

season, but “Heroes” is the network’s biggest question. With this season being the lowest rated yet, one possibility is to cut its budget to a 13-episode finale next fall. The only thing The CW has to worry about is giving up one open time slot on Mondays to veteran drama “One Tree Hill” for new drama “Life Unexpected.” This will be a difficult decision because “Life Unexpected” had very good ratings in its first season, and “One Tree Hill” actually gained viewers, which doesn’t happen often to a show in its seventh season. The “Melrose Place” remake did so badly with ratings that its chances to return are slim, even by The CW’s standards. But everything depends on what the incoming crop of shows looks like to executives. The networks will be deciding through May which shows will be staying and which will cease to air. NBC unveils its schedule May 17, FOX on May 18, ABC on May 19, CBS on May 20 and The CW on May 21, so watch for which shows make it to the renewal side on the fence.

Q & A with MayFest performer RJ Krohn (RJD2) By Alexander James Staff Writer

RJ Krohn, better known as producer-DJ RJD2, has been creating innovative music since 1993. Featuring a diverse mix of hip-hop, soul and rock influences in his songs, RJD2 has been able to connect with multiple audiences and gain a strong fan following over the years, including at Syracuse University’s 2010 MayFest. In January 2010, RJD2 released “The Colossus,” his fourth and entirely selfproduced studio album. Since then he has continued to record, tour and spread his music across the airwaves. Here, The Daily Orange chats with RJD2 about the new album, hip-hop and artistic vision.

The Daily Orange: “The Colossus” was released last year. What was it like to produce, promote and release the album on your own label this time around? RJ: It was a lot more work, but rewarding — I have no regrets. I didn’t expect this level of success. Going into this album, I was thinking it could be a nail in the coffin — you know, biting off more than I could chew. I wasn’t necessarily sure if this would chart and do as well as my previous albums.

The music returns to your earlier style of sample-based beats. What inspired that decision?

The previous record, “The Third Hand,” had more of a pop sound. That was the point, and it was refreshing to get away from sampling for a bit. I had hit a wall in terms of, you know, results versus effort. So this time around, I wouldn’t say that I returned to sampling as much as I incorporated it.

Lots of people know you as the guy who did the “Mad Men” theme song. How has that reputation or status changed your career? It hasn’t, actually. I don’t remember the last time someone approached me like, “Hey, I heard about you through the ‘Mad Men’ theme song and I want to check out more of your stuff.” Most of the time, people already know about my music. They recognize that the “Mad Men” theme is just a part of my catalogue.

Are you concerned with how musicians will make money in the future, considering the age of digital downloads and file-sharing? I am getting concerned. … There are problems with monetizing online plays and collecting revenue. If we get to a point in the future where there’s no money to be made and people make music for art, then I’m cool with it. As in, “I’m gonna put my heart and soul into this, and if I make money, great.” To see the rest of the interview with RJD2, go to

view,” Drake replied. Five, six, seven. Finally, there was the entire New York Police Department. “F*** the NYPD,” he said in response to the recent controversy surrounding his “big brother” Lil Wayne, who is serving a one-year prison sentence at the Rikers Island Prison Complex in New York City after pleading guilty to weapons charges. Eight. It was easy to lose count. But despite these interactions, the strength of the overall Block Party lineup shined through. Block Party 2010, with Drake as headliner along with N*E*R*D., k-os, and Francis and The Lights, was the first-ever sold-out show in the series’ history, selling a record-breaking 9,584 tickets overall, with 4,500 purchased in the exclusive first-week presale. Francis and The Lights, an electro-funk band from New York City that has opened up for MGMT, went on at 7 p.m. They highlighted their stage time with their patented Kingsof-Leon-meets-Prince sound and played a 15-minute set with plenty of hip shaking and keyboard licks. “They were pretty good,” said Jeremy Wattles, a 27-year-old at the show with students from Clinton High School. “I didn’t expect all that dancing.” “What’s up, Syracuse? You live or what?” said k-os, the second performer of the night. The Vancouver, Canada-based rapper was dressed in a blue denim jacket, gray beanie and aviators. After running through a few songs he threw a bunch of CDs, which prompted some intermittent tussles in the crowd. He broke into the next song with riffs from Rush’s “Tom Sawyer” — a move that would be continued throughout his roughly 45-minute set — with other samples from Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing” (making most of the crowd sing along) and the guitar introduction from Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway to Heaven.” “All the ugly people be quiet,” k-os said about halfway through. One of his strong suits was his playful relationship with the audience, which also took the form of fun back-and-forths like “Rock a microphone like this? Like that? Like this? Like that?” and his asking the crowd, “What’s my name, you remember? K-os! Where am I from? Canada!” He also used popular rap interludes such as Busta Rhymes’ “Jump Jump” and Naughty by Nature’s “O.P.P.” to keep the up energy between songs. During one freestyle, k-os sang, “After this we go to Chuck’s and get drunk” to big roars from the crowd. Near the end of the set, k-os brought out Saukrates — a fellow dreadlocked Canadian rapper — to perform a Syracuseified cover of Phantom Planet’s “California” (also known as the theme song for the former Fox show “The O.C.”). Before closing his routine, k-os walked out to the very front of the stage and addressed the audience: “Say — I am somebody.” “I liked him,” said both Patrick O’Donnell and Ben Seketa, two seniors from West Genesee High School, even though they didn’t know k-os before coming. But the two said they were most excited for Drake. N*E*R*D had the best set of the night, which raised some questions as to why it wasn’t the headliner. The group’s been around longer and has generally been more successful than Drake. One of the reasons why Drake stayed in the headlining slot may have been that N*E*R*D was the last band to get signed for Block Party 2010, after University Union was allowed one more act than the standard three for college concerts. N*E*R*D played its future first single from

the upcoming “Nothing” before continuing with a sample from Nelly’s “Hot in Herre.” Following k-os’ taunt, Pharrell Williams looked over the audience: “All the stupid girls be quiet.” The band made sure to play its most famous songs — “She Wants to Move” and “Rockstar” — before Williams came out to the audience, slapping hands with the fans in the front rows. He had something in his hand as he came back up to the stage — an SU shirt — that he held up over the crowd while the group signed the Vulcan hand gesture from “Star Trek.” “They were sick,” said Molly Hope, a senior accounting and supply chain management major. “At the end they really wrapped it up. It was just an awesome ending.” Other students wanted more. “I didn’t really know them,” said Samantha Wallach, a sophomore sociology major. “I hope Drake is better, to be honest.” Some people in the audience were nervous for Drake’s performance because he was forced to cancel a show just two days before, after a doctor told him to give his voice a rest. Surrounded by a backing band made up of a drummer, DJ, bassist and keyboardist, Drake emerged at 10:30 p.m., grasping a white microphone. He opened with the radio hit “Forever,” which features Lil Wayne in the studio version. From the start it became obvious that Drake’s stage presence was not nearly as compelling as Williams’ or even k-os’. Most of his routine felt contrived, practiced and superficial. He continued with “Unstoppable” — another Top 40 jam that manages to include lyrics about the 1990s show “Boy Meets World” (“Ain’t on the fence about it, I ain’t Mr. Feeney”). The pace of the set began to slow with the I-wish-I-had-acid-handy “Houstatlantavegas,” which was too start-and-stop to maintain momentum throughout. He did, however, play new songs from his forthcoming debut LP, “Thank Me Later.” Some members of the audience were reminded of Drake’s days in “Degrassi: The Next Generation” when the big screens on either side of the stage caught a glimpse of two female students holding an “I <3 U Jimmy Brooks” sign. The energy started to pick up again when Drake brought out Birdman (a.k.a. Baby), the founder of Cash Money Records and one-half of the Big Tymers, for a song that saw Drake’s voice heavily AutoTuned in certain sections. But Drake had one more person to call out that night — Lil Wayne. He said he wanted to do something for him, so he had the audience recite Wayne’s part in “I’m Goin’ In.” The recording would play on Hot 97 the next day in honor of “Weezy.” He then tore into “Bed Rock,” a Young Money song featuring both Lil Wayne and Drake in the original recording. Nine. Later, Drake stopped mid-song for a “hold it, let me tie my shoe” gag before starting again. He went off to the back to grab his microphone stand, which had at least 10 bras hanging from it, before breaking into one of his slower, more emotional numbers. He couldn’t get away from the women, though. Overall, he spent approximately 10 minutes talking about girls in the audience, which prompted a corny lead into the next song: “Will she be good for me? Will she be bad for me? Or will she be the best I ever had?” Before walking off stage, Drake addressed the audience one last time: “I love you. I’m nothing without you. Free Weezy.” “It was good. It was surprising because I’ve never really listened to him before, but it was fun,” said Emily Fasel, a sophomore supply chain management major. “His crowd interaction was really good. He interacted with the crowd a lot better than a lot of artists who perform at venues this large.”

Caira throws 1-hitter as SU splits series against Pittsburgh The Syracuse softball team split a doubleheader with Pittsburgh Saturday, winning the first game 8-0 before losing the second 4-0. Sunday’s rubber match was rained out. Pitcher Jenna Caira was in command of game one for the Orange (28-21, 10-8 Big East). She threw her fourth one-hitter of the year, striking out 13. A bunt-single by Pittsburgh’s Ashley Amistade in the third inning was the lone hit for the Panthers (25-21, 9-9). Caira extended her scoreless inning streak to 19, as she moved into second place among Big East pitchers with 16 wins on the season. Veronica Grant led the way for the Orange bats in game one, going 3-for-4 with two RBI, a stolen base and a run scored. Stacy Kuwik hit 1-for-3 with a two-run double, the only extra base hit for the Orange in game one. Five differ-

ent SU players drove in runs. The win gave the Orange its second-longest winning streak of the season, only to see it snapped in the next game. Both Syracuse and Pittsburgh had seven hits in game two, but the Orange failed to convert on its chances. Stacy Kuwik took the loss for Syracuse, as SU was shut out for just the third time all season. Stephanie Watts went 2-for-3 from the leadoff spot for the Orange in the loss. It was her second straight series hitting from the leadoff spot. She was the only Syracuse player with multiple hits in game two. The Orange finishes up its nonconference schedule Tuesday with a doubleheader at Canisius. It wraps up the Big East regular season this weekend when it hosts DePaul in a threegame series.

Track and field

At the Big East men’s and women’s championships this weekend at Cincinnati, the Syracuse track and field team earned seventh- and eighthplace finishes. Junior Jarret Eaton, freshman Darryl White, and graduate students Michael LeBlanc and Antoine Clark teamed up to win the 400-meter relays with a time of 40.63 seconds. Eaton was victorious in the 110-meter hurdles with a personal best, an NCAA Regional qualifying time of 13.85. LeBlanc earned two top-five finishes on the day, with a first-place finish in the 100meter dash (10.47) and a fifth-place finish in the 200-meter dash (21.61). Both Leblanc and Clark earned All-Big East honors over the weekend. Graduate student Bernard Bush kept up with LeBlanc in the 100-meter dash long enough to take fifth with a time of 10.80.

The men’s seventh-place finish is the best for SU since 2007, when the team finished fourth. The 66 points earned on the weekend placed the Orange between Cincinnati and South Florida. The women, led by two-time defending Big East pentathlon champion Uhunoma Osazuwa, saw a four-spot improvement from last year. With the exclusion of the 800-meter run, Osazuwa finished in the top three in every event in the heptathlon. Sophomore Ieva Staponkute joined LeBlanc and Eaton to earn All-Big East honors with a second-place finish in the triple jump. She set her season best with a 12.24-meter jump. Syracuse continues its championship season at the ECAC/IC4A Championships in Princeton, N.J., starting Friday. — Compiled by The Daily Orange sports staff

concussions from page 24

for when a player can return to play. It’s a caseby-case basis. “Physically, I could still play this game,” said Hrinya, a communications and rhetorical studies major planning to graduate this May. “And do it well.”

The side effects The younger an athlete is when he or she sustains his or her first concussion, the worse it is, Neal said. The young brain is still immature, so repetitive hits to the head cause the athlete to be prone to more concussions. After Hrinya’s third concussion during his sophomore year of college, his lifestyle started to change. Headaches occurred more frequently. He always wears sunglasses outside because his eyes are sensitive to light. He sits in the dark watching television or playing video games because he gets migraines. Andrew Robinson, a former SU player and Hrinya’s roommate, flicks on all the lights

when he enters the apartment. Hrinya has to go upstairs to be in the dark. “He’s always sitting in the pitch black,” said Robinson, a senior. “I asked him, ‘What are you, a vampire or something?’” Hrinya took the Standardized Assessment of Concussion (SAC) test after his third concussion and said he “failed miserably.” The test is a series of questions and patterns. Hrinya remembers being asked to repeat a group of numbers backward. He was not successful. Neal said when assessing concussions the day of and after the incident, trainers and doctors look in three different areas of the athlete: cognitive (basic skills and thought), semantic (sensitivity to light, headaches, nausea) and effect (responding to questioning, crying, silence). Neal said the next step is raising the athlete’s heart rate to make sure all symptoms have ceased. Trainers monitor athletes as they exercise. If symptoms return, the athlete takes more time off. If symptoms are clear, the athlete can return to drills, gradually. Then light-contact and, eventually, full-contact practice can occur. For Dalton Phillips, a former SU long-snapper/ tight end, concussions are all too “common.”

Multiple concussions have plagued Phillips as well. He lost consciousness and suffered a concussion Nov. 14 during Syracuse’s 10-9 loss to Louisville. Phillips said he barely remembers the hit or much of the day after his concussion. His memory did not return until later that night in the hospital. “The trainers (at SU) are on it,” Phillips said. “If you have any symptoms, if you had a concussion, they are very cautious of how long they keep you out.” After that hit, Phillips joined the ranks of Hrinya in career-ending concussions. “My concussion came right before the end of the season,” Phillips said. “Tim Neal said, ‘You’re done. I hate to end it like this for you, but don’t want to take any risks.’” Even after Phillips was technically no longer on the SU roster, trainers forced him to come in for regular check-ups with doctors because his migraines persisted.

The final blow A year passed after concussion No. 3. Hrinya played through his sophomore season at SU. The Orange’s practice turf was cold and hard from the November chill. Hrinya stood seven yards away from his teammate during a practice drill. He sprinted forward, attempting to tackle his teammate. The force knocked both of them out. “But I was the one that got the concussion,” Hrinya said. “Because my head is so screwed up. “After that concussion I was really, really messed up. I was throwing up, I couldn’t function at all. Worst one I ever had. I thought I was going to die.” Voices sounded like they were 1,000 miles away. The doctors sat Hrinya down, but he could not make out what they were saying. Hrinya blacked out. He woke up with an IV in his arm, lying in a hospital bed. That’s when one of the SU trainers broke the news to him. He explained Hrinya had suffered another concussion. This one was so bad that Hrinya couldn’t play football anymore. He was deemed medically unable to play. This was the end. “I didn’t know how to react,” Hrinya said. “I was not expecting that at all. There were so many emotions running through my head that

“I felt like I was in a dream world. Like nothing was real. I kept spinning in a circle. The world was shifting.” Derek Hrinya

Former SU football player

I just zoned out.” Hrinya ran out onto the field with his teammates during SU’s final game against Cincinnati in 2007. He looked up at the Carrier Dome stands and glanced up at the crowd. That’s when he realized it was really over. “I was so upset that I’d never be able to do this again,” Hrinya said. “This was my life and all I do. That’s when I was like, ‘Can’t believe it’s over.’” His scholarship would be honored since he suffered a medical injury while playing football. Even through coaching changes, Doug Marrone’s staff made a conscious effort to include Hrinya in practice. He filmed practice for Marrone all of this past season. But regardless, Hrinya’s father, Darrin, was devastated that his son’s career was over, Hrinya said. “My dad was really upset about it. You know, your son goes to a D-I school, you have NFL aspirations,” Hrinya said. “My mom was really upset but at the same time relieved I wasn’t going to play football anymore. But (she) didn’t want it to happen like this.” Neal recalled Hrinya’s situation. The history of concussions before even entering college destined Hrinya for trouble from the start. “The actual hit is the worst part of all of this,” Hrinya said. “What I felt like after. It’s a crazy pain in your head, confusion; you don’t understand what’s going on in your body or brain. Other than that, the hardest thing for me, physically, is I could still play this game and do it well. It’s not like I tore a ligament in my knee where I can’t run the same. “But physically, I’m still all there. But my brain is weak.”

Orange clinches share of Big East, coasts to win over Irish By Rachel Stern Staff Writer

Matched up against Notre Dame’s leading scorer Zach Brenneman Saturday, Syracuse longstick midfielder Joel White immediately showed he was ready to do more than just shut down the Irish’s go-to guy. Three minutes into the game, White knocked the stick out of Brenneman’s hand as he raced toward the Syracuse net. Jovan Miller scooped up the loose ball and threw it ahead to Chris Daniello. White filled the lane and registered his third goal of the season with a laser that sailed past the big body of Notre Dame goalie Scott Rodgers. White’s goal sparked a five-goal first quarter for the Orange that set the tone for the rest of the game. SU junior attack Stephen Keogh also had

“Our offense got off to a very good start and our defense was consistent all game. We knew it would be a playoff atmosphere. We have a great group who played very well and was able to double up on them.” John Desko

SU head coach

two goals through the first 15 minutes. “We got off to a very good start,” SU head coach John Desko said in a phone interview after the game. “Five goals in the first gave us a good cushion that was important.” In front of a sold-out crowd of 4,063 at Arlotta Stadium, that scorching start led No. 2 Syracuse (12-1, 5-0 Big East) to a 12-6 victory over the Fighting Irish (7-6, 2-4 Big East). The win was the Orange’s 10th consecutive victory. Heading into the regular-season finale at St. John’s, the Orange has secured at least a share of the first Big East lacrosse title in the conference’s inaugural season, and it can win the title outright with a victory over the Red Storm next Saturday. Desko was pleased to see an all-around game from his squad. In a game in which Desko knew the Fighting Irish would come out focused with their playoff hopes on the line, the Orange’s head coach was impressed with how his team came out of the gate. “Our offense got off to a very good start and our defense was consistent all game,” Desko said. “We knew it would be a playoff atmosphere. We have a great group who played very well and was able to double up on them.” Led by Keogh’s four goals and junior midfielder Josh Amidon’s two goals, the Syracuse depth was on full display. Ten different players registered at least one point. It was Keogh’s first multiple-goal game since April 3 against Albany. Desko was quick to point out Keogh’s struggles have come as a result of other teams keying on him. Though the statistics do not show it, Desko said, the junior attack

has still helped the Orange despite the slight downturn in goal production. “Against Rutgers and Providence, he was very good off the ball,” Desko said. “Against Rutgers, he set picks for three goals. He has done other things very well when teams have tried to shut him down.” Through the first 15 minutes of action, the Orange offense looked the part of a team that was ready to go after being bottled up against the Friars a week before. SU shot out of the gate and scored five unanswered goals in the first quarter. That quick start was important because the Irish did not go away. Thanks to seven SU penalties and a Notre Dame defense that held the Orange scoreless for more than 24 minutes over the second and third quarters, the Irish managed to cut the lead to 5-4 after Brenneman’s only goal of the game with 9:45 to play in the third. But Amidon scored just more than one minute later to give the Orange some momentum back. “In the third, they had a man-up to start, and they had the ball for the first five minutes,” Desko said. “Then we got the ball back and scored, and that really got us going. We played much more relaxed after that.” The Irish would cut the lead to two to start the fourth. But Syracuse ended the game just how it started. SU outscored the Irish 4-0 through the final frame. In the end, the Orange captured another tough, primetime victory on the road. “It has not been easy this year,” Desko said. “We have had a lot of night road games. This group has stayed very focused.”

Syracuse fails to secure 4th straight Big East title in loss By Andrew Tredinnick Staff Writer

Catherine Rodriguez had four seconds to find an open player down the field Saturday. With Syracuse trailing by a goal, a desperation heave was in order. The ball sailed 55 yards through the air and over the head of Tee Ladouceur, who fell forward onto the turf. And with that, No. 9 Syracuse (12-5, 6-2 Big East) stumbled to No. 12 Georgetown (11-5, 8-0) 10-9 in front of 439 people in the Carrier Dome on Senior Day. SU fell in a tightly contested game, losing its quest for a fourth consecutive Big East regularseason title. As a result, the loss pinned the Orange as the No. 3 seed in the Big East tournament. The Orange jumped out to an early 4-1 lead in the second half after junior attack Ladouceur netted her first goal of the contest. Georgetown used a three-goal run to tie the game. Neither team would lead by more than three goals throughout the entire game. But down the stretch, SU would struggle to score goals against Georgetown keeper Caitlin Formby. Sporadic chances sailed high, wide and found the post. “Some days the pressure maybe gets to them a little bit, but it’s certainly not from a lack of opportunities,” Syracuse head coach Gary Gait said. “Normally we would have 15 goals on 30

shots, and today we didn’t get it done. We had some great looks, and it’s just a tough day for the guys finishing on offense.” The Orange ended up in a situation it had seen throughout the season — locked in a close game with a ranked opponent. This time not finishing cost Syracuse the No.1 seed in the Big East tournament. And for the fourth time this season, the Orange fell by a one-goal margin. The result has been seen all too often for SU players. “I think we’re there. I think everyone is so pissed off at this point,” senior defender Eileen Finn said. “One-goal losses — I mean, a loss is a loss, but one-goal losses, I mean, it just pisses you off.” With Georgetown leading 8-7, the urgency for the Orange was evident. Senior Halley Quillinan rang the ball off the crossbar. Jackie DePetris was called for a foul, and a comment from Ladouceur to the referee earned a yellow card, putting SU a man down. Georgetown used the misconduct penalty and a stick to the head penalty on freshman attack Michelle Tumolo to extend the Hoyas’ lead to 10-7. Ladouceur used a spirited effort to keep the game close. She used a crafty behind-the-back goal to inch the Orange closer, but a unique style of defense deployed by the Hoyas stymied SU for the rest of the half. Formby was at the forefront

Syracuse fell 10-9 and failed to clinch a share of the Big East regular-season title. of the Hoyas’ defensive success. “Offensively, we need to stay composed a little bit more,” Ladouceur said. “This goalie, she’s a lefty, but that’s no excuse. You have to do a little hitch move around her and find the back of the net and not look at the goalie.” Ladouceur was one of the few players for the Orange who was able to find success against the Georgetown defense. Ladouceur had four goals and three assists in the losing effort. Senior Christina Dove had three goals and two assists, but other SU seniors were held to minimal contributions in their final regular-season game in the Carrier Dome.

The effort was there, but the chances just did not find the back of the net. The Orange continuously attempted to fight back but was never quite able to overcome the three-goal deficit. SU is 1-2 on the season when it struggles to score in double digits. Heading into the postseason, that will have to change if Syracuse hopes to make a deep run. “It’s a whole team game and if the (offense) is not producing, we need to step it up on defense,” Finn said. “We’re not going to point fingers at anyone. It’s a team game. We win as a team and lose as a team.”

In matchup of standout goalies, Hogan’s impressive effort not enough By Brad Kallet Staff Writer

With junior goalkeeper Liz Hogan having one of the best games of her career, the Syracuse defense appeared poised to capture the Big East regular-season crown. But despite the Orange’s many offensive opportunities, finding the back of the cage proved to be problematic Saturday. Time and time again, Georgetown’s stout defense continued to stifle the usually steady Orange attack. And unfortunately for the Orange, Hogan’s impressive effort in goal ultimately came up a tad bit short. As a result, No. 12 Georgetown (11-5, 8-0 Big East) defeated No. 9 Syracuse (12-5, 6-2), 10-9, on Senior Day at the Carrier Dome to capture the Big East conference regular-season title. But because of Hogan’s stellar play in goal, the Orange was able to stay in contention until the final minutes of action. “She’s been playing well all year long,” head coach Gary Gait said. “She made a lot of great saves and gave us opportunities. I thought both goalies played well today and gave their team opportunities. It just came down to one extra shot that went in.” The two teams were neck and neck in the contest from start to finish. And the stat sheet reflected that. The Hoyas outscored SU 6-5 in the first half, and the two teams scored four goals apiece in the second. Georgetown took 35 shots and Syracuse took 33. The Hoyas caused one more turnover. With each team having ample opportunities to score, it was the two goalies that shined in this regular-season finale. Georgetown goalkeeper Caitlin Formby limited Syracuse, mainly in the second half. Though SU didn’t take advantage of many of its good looks, Formby rose to the occasion, causing the Orange to miss all four of its free-position shots.

But for how good Formby was in this game, Hogan stayed right on par with her. In many respects, Hogan was better than her counterpart. She had 16 saves to Formby’s 14 and held Georgetown to just 2-for-7 in free-position attempts. Hogan’s value was on display at the conclusion of the first half. With Georgetown leading 6-5 with roughly 1:30 left before halftime, the Hoyas held possession, letting the clock run in an effort to get one final shot before heading into the locker room. With 15 seconds remaining, Georgetown made its move. A Hoya player rushed toward the goal, saw the opening and fired it toward the cage. Hogan got her stick up just in time, ending the Hoyas’ threat and avoiding what would have been a devastating dagger heading into the break. “Our defensive communication was working well, so I knew where they were going to come from,” Hogan said. “It wasn’t like I was completely blindsided. We had some huge stands that lasted four, six minutes long. You can’t ask anything more from your defense, so I’m really proud of them.” The Hoyas led for the majority of the second

half, but whenever Georgetown would threaten to run away with the game, it seemed Hogan would make a crucial save and shift the game’s momentum. The Hoyas never led by more than three goals and didn’t score in the final 16 minutes of the game. Though Hogan acknowledges she was seeing the ball particularly well on this day, she is quick to credit the defense for her success. She believes that the defense’s ability to work as a unit improved her chances to be in prime position to make saves. The Orange’s strong defensive performance was on display during those final 16 minutes. As SU surged back, the unit would stymie Georgetown’s attacks for minutes at a time, making it possible for the offense to mount a comeback. Senior defender Eileen Finn was disappointed

following the loss but was pleased with the way the defense frustrated the explosive Georgetown attack. With senior defender and co-captain Lindsay Rogers on the sideline injured, Finn said holding the Hoyas to just 10 goals proves this team can handle any offense in the country. But as impressive as the defensive unit was as a whole, it all ultimately came back to Hogan and her knack for protecting the cage. “Liz has been solid,” Finn said. “You couldn’t ask for anything more from her. She is a great leader and she talks a lot. And obviously she bails us out all the time with the saves she comes up with.”

Head games

Concussions are demanding more care with each career they destroy By Meredith Galante


Editor in Chief

erek Hrinya laid on the turf, staring out into space. Colors were off. Everything was distorted, blurred in some way. He was nauseous. Then, started to vomit. He tried to stand up but fell. “I felt like I was in a dream world,” Hrinya said. “Like nothing was real. I kept spinning in a circle. The world was shifting.” Hrinya, then a senior in high school, suffered his first concussion at that moment. He went to tackle a player on the opposing team, and the two players’ helmets smashed together. The hit knocked him out. The feeling of delirium, nausea and confusion ensued. In a fog, he remembers the trainers asked, “How many fingers am I holding up?” Hrinya, now a senior at Syracuse, resumed playing for Warwick Valley Central High School. He faced the hard reality that concussions are common in football. But his mother, Elizabeth, wanted him to stop playing immediately. “Concussions are serious,” she told him. “Are you crazy?” Hrinya said he asked his mother back in 2006. “I have a full scholarship to play at SU. I’m still going to play football.”

Hit. Thud. Smack. Two years and three concussions later at Syracuse, Hrinya, the former Orange safety, has suffered four major hits that resulted in concussions. Three while on SU’s roster, all during practice. By the fourth concussion, Hrinya was deemed medically inactive to play football. His football playing days were over, just like so many others in Hrinya’s position. Playing through multiple concussions has developed into a national trend among young athletes. Hrinya’s

“After that concussion I was really, really messed up. I was throwing up, I couldn’t function at all. Worst one I ever had. I thought I was going to die.” Derek Hrinya

Former SU football player

story just hits closer to Syracuse. A concussion is the physical response to a blow to the head, said Tim Neal, the assistant director of athletics for sports medicine at Syracuse. A concussion can occur from a hard hit to the head, face or neck, or any type of jarring force where the head gets smacked hard, Neal said. Neal attended a collegiate athletics summit on concussions April 9, as the NCAA continuously revises its policy regarding concussions. Neal said Syracuse University boasts a very conservative policy, with no risks, when it comes to concussions. Neal said the NCAA will sponsor concussion education for coaches and athletes starting next season so everyone is aware of the signs and risks of concussions. In 2009, the National Football League passed new rules regarding concussions mid-season in order to protect players from returning to play too soon after suffering a concussion. The new rules trickled down to the collegiate and high school levels, skyrocketing the reevaluation of how to deal with concussions. Neal said the most frustrating part for athletes, families and coaches is the waiting. Being diagnosed with a concussion does not give a finite time see concussions page 18

concussion facts What is a concussion? • Defined as the most common type of traumatic brain injury • A concussion is most often caused by a sudden direct blow or bump to the head. • When you sustain a concussion, the impact can jolt your brain. Sometimes, it literally causes it to slosh around in your head. • Traumatic brain injuries can cause bruising, damage to the blood vessels and injury to the nerves. • As a result, the brain doesn’t function normally. If you’ve suffered a concussion, your vision may be disturbed, you may lose your equilibrium or you may fall unconscious.

What are the symptoms of a concussion? • Confusion or feeling dazed • Clumsiness • Slurred speech • Nausea or vomiting • Headache • Blurred vision • Sensitivity to light • Memory loss • Sluggishness • Ringing in ears • Concentration difficulties —Data provided by WebMD
