uried under a copy of Science Magazine and Monday’s PostStandard, Thomas Fondy unearthed the reason he donated $4,000 to congressional candidate Dan Maffei. He opened the Greenpeace pamphlet on climate change and found the page with pictures of polar bears standing on shrinking icebergs. “You want to know why I support Dan?” he said, pointing at the pictures. “This is why.”

Maffei’s opponent, incumbent Rep. Ann Marie Buerkle (R-N.Y.), is a climate change denier, but Maffei has lectured at the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry and understands science, said Fondy, a biology professor at Syracuse University. “We need to get people in (Congress) who know science and respect science,” he said. Fondy was one of several at SU who donated money this election season to further support a candidate and to advance an issue they believe in. From 2011 to 2012, 75 individuals who identified themselves as SU employees made 170 contributions totaling $82,634 to political campaigns, according to data from the Center for Responsive Politics. By federal law, campaigns are not required to disclose donations of less than $250. Both the amount of money donated and the number of contributions is a significant increase from the 2008 election. Four years ago, SU employees made 45 contributions totaling $28,000. The uptick in donations is in line with national trends, which saw congressional and presidential candidates and their supporters

day of presidential elections, the Student Association needs just 660 more votes to match last year’s total vote count. As of 10 p.m. Tuesday, SA received about 3,046 votes, which is 205 more votes than this time last year, said Board of Elections and Membership Chair Jenn Bacolores. This indicates that 21.4 percent of the student body has voted. Only 10 percent of the student body needs to vote in order to validate the election, which means voting will not be extend-

ed past 11:59 p.m. Thursday. So far in this year’s election, 20 percent of the votes came from freshmen, 33 percent came from sophomores, 28 percent came from juniors and 20 percent came from seniors, Bacolores said. “This follows a similar trend we see in elections,” she said. “Sophomores and juniors are more involved, and then toward the end we start to see more freshmen.” The elections so far have run smoothly, she said. The only issue Bacolores said she could recall was a slight, five-minute lag on MySlice at midnight on Monday, when voting began. Voting for Student Association

president and comptroller will take place on MySlice from Nov. 12-15. Students can log onto MySlice and click on the “Vote Now” button in the center module. Board of Elections and Membership members are also placing voting stations around campus to help and encourage students to vote. Wednesday’s stations will be located at Bird Library, the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs and the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry’s Marshall Hall, according to the SA elections Facebook page.

spend $ 6 billion on the election, up 13 percent from 2008, according to Time magazine. This year’s contributions from SU employees went to a wide variety of campaigns, spanning 17 candidates from five different states and four political parties, as well as four political organizations. The School of Architecture was the only SU school /col lege that did not have employees donate to a political campaign. Professors from the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs contributed the most money out of all the schools, with 18 professors donating a total of $20,118. The next highest contributing school was the College of Law with a total of $13,000 from seven professors, followed by the Martin J. Whitman School of Management, the College of Arts and Sciences and the School of Information Studies. The majority of contributions made by Whitman employees came from the school’s dean, Melvin Stith, who donated $4,950 to President Barack Obama’s campaign and $1,250 to the Democratic National Committee, for a total of $6,200. Stith, the highest individual donor among SU employees, said he chose to contribute to Obama’s campaign purely for personal reasons. “I’m a product of the segregated South,” he said. “I was able to support something I never dreamed I would have an opportunity to support.” Other African-Americans have run for president before, but Obama is the

Author criticizes food industry, American overeating habits By Shelby Netschke STAFF WRITER

An overweight Uncle Sam gripped a hamburger, the words “I want YOU to eat more” below his bulging stomach. The audience, an assortment of Syracuse University community members, erupted in laughter.

The caricature of Uncle Sam was a slide in a presentation by Marion Nestle, an award-winning author and food activist. Nestle delivered her speech, “Food Politics from Farm to Table: A Recipe for Change,” as part of the University Lectures series on Tuesday at Hendricks Chapel.

Number of adjuncts rises across nation, remains stable at SU By Shelby Netschke STAFF WRITER

The number of adjunct professors has increased at colleges nationwide. But at Syracuse University, their numbers have remained relatively stagnant. Non-tenure-track positions now account for 68 percent of college faculty across the country, according to the American Association of University Professors. At SU, non-tenure tracks made up

about 39 percent of the instructional faculty for the 2011-12 academic year, according to SU’s Office of Institutional Research and Assessment. This has been the case at SU for the past decade. Adjunct professors are one of the four main types of professors employed at SU. The other three types are tenure-track professors, professors of practice and part-time professors, said Vice Chancellor


The presentation discussed the effects that agricultural policies and economic factors have on the food industry, which forces Americans to overeat. “You can’t understand anything about food in America, or anywhere else in the world, without thinking about how the agricultural system works,” Nestle said.

The goal of the food industry is to make money while the goal of public health is to make people healthy, Nestle said, and the conflict in these ideas is made apparent by the increase in obesity rates since 1980. This is when the food industry began to pay farmers to grow as much

as they possibly could, which resulted in “mountains of corn in a sea of farm subsidies,” Nestle said. This, along with the larger portion sizes introduced in the 1980s, Nestle said, played a significant role in rising obesity rates.


DPS advises against unattended items By Michelle Sczpanski DESIGN EDITOR

On Oct. 31, Fiona O’Connor walked into the Syracuse University Bookstore and dropped her backpack off in a cubby, just as she always did when she entered the bookstore. When she came back five minutes later, her backpack, which held her laptop, was gone. “I went home and was like, ‘I don’t know what I’m going to do,’” said O’Connor, a junior magazine journalism and English and textual studies major.

O’Connor is not the only Syracuse University student who has been a victim of campus thefts this year. A couple dozen thefts have occurred on campus so far, five of which took place in the Schine Student Center SU Bookstore, said Tony Callisto, chief of the Department of Public Safety. He said these numbers are very typical. “The biggest challenge is places where people might leave their property unattended,” Callisto said, citing study areas and libraries as especially problematic.

Donald Maitland, director of security for the SU Bookstore, said the store recently began allowing students to carry backpacks with them throughout the store, but the policy change is not related to thefts. Rather, he said, it was made in an effort to test how well allowing students to carry large bags throughout the store worked before the bookstore moves. The new location on University Avenue will not have any storage space for large bags. The number of thefts in the book-

SA members must reach out past Carrier Dome for ESF representation


s Student Association elections continue this week, campaigning has made it over to the Stumpie Quad. To the surprise of some SUNY-ESF students, not only can they cast votes in the election, but ESF students can also become SA members. It’s a disconnect from both sides. State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry students need to be involved and have their voices heard in SA, but SA members have to reach out to Stumpies to let them know they are part of the parcel. SA designates six seats for ESF students, and only two spots are filled. One of these members also serves on the SA cabinet and is, to date, the longest-serving cabinet member in SA. ESF involvement should be increased. SA is the “official student governing body of Syracuse University and SUNY ESF undergraduate students,” but it’s lacking ESF representation. In all reality, this lack of representation is from a lack of knowledge, and not a lack of interest. There is a large group of ESF students who participate in clubs and organizations at SU, joining everything from the SU Outing Club to the SU chapter of the United States Green Building Council. In addition, ESF students study at SU — whether they are required by course curriculum or take classes that interest them. SU and ESF are extremely interconnected, yet this lack of representation clearly shows that SA participation is unknown. While SA members are beginning to think about their Stumpie neighbors across the street, an expanded effort of communication could do ESF good. Allie Curtis, current SA vice president, commented on this gap via email. She noted though

21st-century tree hugger our institutions are separate entities, we need to focus on similarities and involvement. “We have a slight increase in ESF representation, but not enough. The tagline is not just for ESF involvement in organizations at SU, but involvement in policy making decisions and campus initiatives that affect us all,” Curtis said. At ESF, our connection with SU requires we have a voice in SA affairs. Through ESF’s Undergraduate Student Association, greatly similar to SA, students work on ESF’s small campus, but when moving over to our larger neighbor, only two members represent ESF. USA has an ESF/SU liaison, but three people representing a college make up a startlingly small amount when four more positions hang empty. Jenn Bacolores, SA’s chair of the Board of Elections and Membership, said the disconnected relationship between ESF and SU is unfortunate. “My hope by the end of my term was to connect with the ESF student body through USA,” Bacolores said. What it comes down to is the current representation is not enough. The attempts to communicate are not enough. Caleb Marsh, environmental studies major at ESF and SA assembly representative, said this lack of knowledge and communication is the heart of the problem. “There is a palpable disconnect. By the time I graduate next spring, my goal is to get two more ESF students in SA. There needs to be a direct effect on ESF campus,” he said. Marsh, as an ESF representative, refused to give any SA presidential candidate an endorsement. No candidate represented the interests of ESF to the degree necessary to receive an endorsement, Marsh said. Starting next semester, Marsh plans to begin tabling on the ESF campus to increase Stumpie awareness and involvement. Visibility is a start, but not all that can be done. To increase involvement, SA can reach out to the numerous organizations on the ESF campus, including forging a stronger tie with USA. Students can be made aware through these organizations, as well as through social media and other forms of mass communication. If SA can communicate with SU, why not walk to the other side of the Carrier Dome and work with students they already represent?

Fordham students shouldn’t cancel conservative speaker


he atmosphere at Fordham University is rife with coercion and self-censorship, at least in terms of Ann Coulter’s canceled speaking engagement. The Fordham University College Republicans invited Coulter to speak on Nov. 29, but then rescinded the offer following student outrage and a mass email of condemnation by Fordham University President Father Joseph McShane. In the email, which was published by Fordham’s school paper, McShane wrote about his disappointment “with the judgment and maturity of the College Republicans” and called Coulter’s rhetoric “hateful.” Regardless, the Fordham University College Republicans should have stood their ground because the definition of “good” and “bad” speech should not be up for public vote and our leadership should not set it. The virtue of any idea is subjective. If we carry on this way, the public or elites could deem valid solutions to a problem “bad,” and through self-censorship — like that exemplified by the Fordham University College Republicans — we might never find the solution. But more importantly than the issue of finding a solution, McShane directed everyone on campus to turn against the Republicans, saying “I fully expect our students, faculty, alumni, parents, and staff to voice their opposition, civilly and respectfully, and forcefully.” Apparently losing the election was not enough — until students, faculty, alumni, parents and staff rally against one of our commentators with solidarity, the task is not done. Fordham students established a Twitter feed, @StopAnnCoulter, to protest the canceled event, proving it is possible to limit free speech in 140 characters or less. Ironically, the students cited Coulter’s “misogyny” in a petition

vast right-wing conspiracy against her, but tweeted at Bill “Palin is a tw*t” Maher for help, saying “My university is sponsoring an event featuring Ann Coulter with OUR tuition money. Can you RT our petition?” Maher is too busy maligning rightwing women and has yet to retweet. Regarding money, we can understand the liberals’ indignation because they are used to being on the administrative end of taking other peoples’ money and spending it in frustrating ways. The Fordham University College Republicans wrote an apology letter, asking the university community to “forgive the College Republicans.” Fordham University is a Jesuit school, so there are likely confessionals on campus. Problem absolved. The Fordham University College Republicans said, in the letter, they rejected Coulter after “determining that some of her comments do not represent the ideals of the College Republicans.” If this is true, they should quit and join the College Democrats. Coulter’s rhetoric is enjoyable. For sure, she says some things that many might disagree with strongly, but such is the nature of free speech. Watching leadership rally the public against a law-abiding political commentator and the public reject the free exchange of ideas is far more disturbing than anything Coulter might say.

SA must change VP selection process As the Student Association presidential election continues, a flaw in the system has come to light: Students do not know the presidential candidates’ plans for the vice presidential position during the election. The SA codes say a potential vice president may not run on the same ticket as a presidential candidate. The codes should be changed for future elections to make it a requirement for candidates to announce their vice presidents before voting begins. A presidential candidate’s counterpart can make the campaign platform stronger. The vice presidential candidate’s strengths can balance out the presidential candidate’s weaknesses. Announcing a vice president before voting begins helps students determine for whom to vote. SA has tried to define the vice president’s role more in recent administrations. Vice President Allie

EDITORIAL by the daily orange editorial board Curtis and Jessica Cunnington, vice president of the 55th Session, seemed to have vastly different levels of involvement in SA. A vice president who wins the position instead of being appointed would be more accountable to the student body. By having SA presidential candidates choose their running mates beforehand, it forces them closer to how the political system in this country works. On the national level, presidential candidates campaign with their vice president. As the student government, SA should try to emulate the national process in this manner. One deterrent to making this change is that including the vice presidential candidate in the campaign could turn SA elections

into more of a popularity contest. Students could vote for a ticket solely because of the additional name recognition. But being an educated voter is important, and SA must work to continue to educate voters. Forcing presidential candidates to announce their running mate beforehand prevents one of the other presidential candidates from becoming vice president after the race ends. But putting a dejected presidential candidate into this position might not be the best plan anyway. The president and vice president should be able to work together cohesively to carry out their individual goals. Changing the SA codes to allow and force the presidential candidates to announce their vice presidential picks could greatly benefit the student body. It is a code change SA officials should consider before the next election.

In the spring, the group will also debut its website, which will hold all of the show’s content, Ding said. Though Chinnel [W]’s primary role is to serve as entertainment for the Chinesespeaking members of the SU community, it also serves as a bridge between the nonChinese and Mandarin-speaking population, Ding said. “Our program will help them get used to the lives here in the United States more effectively and rapidly,” she said. “For the

local students, on the other hand, our programs will increase awareness and mutual cultural understanding.” The station’s name, Chinnel [W], combines the words Chinese and channel along with the letter W, which stands for “a wing that flies across the pacific, sky is the limit, freedom, youth, and passion,” Ding said. In addition to the music video, the network produces a drama show called “Our World,” which centers on the struggles of international students on American college campuses, Ding said. “I believe the cultural shock and other elements in the film will resonate with many students who are new to Syracuse,” Ding said. “Not just international students.” Aside from parody and drama, Chinnel [W] also plans on doing a culinary reality show. Ding said the purpose of this show is to inform Mandarin students about how to eat at SU. “The idea came about when I noticed many international students are not used to the food here in Syracuse,” Ding said. She said the network is also planning a show called “Chinese Learning Program in English,” which teaches the most updated, trendy slang from China. Ding said she hopes the channel will become a company in the future so she will be able to pay the staff, noting that it might help expand the staff and the range of potential projects. The group has made a lot out of a little, Ding said, and she is proud of what the show has accomplished in such a short period of time. “We don’t (have) fancy gadgets and production technologies,” Ding said. “But we believe in (the) content of the program.”


“People tend to eat the default,” Nestle said. “They eat what’s in front of them. If the default is larger, people will eat whatever is in it.” She said the industry encourages food consumption by making food available everywhere. “My favorite is Staples, which now has a section on office snacks,” Nestle said. She discussed the large affect of soda companies, which are worried about the implication of soda taxes and are spending millions of dollars fighting it. Soda companies are also globalizing poor health, Nestle said, by targeting emerging economies with billions of fresh customers, and the simultaneous increase of obesity in these


only one who was able to “make his way through the maze” and become a viable candidate, Stith said. Members of the chancellor’s cabinet also donated to political campaigns, contributing a total of $2,500. Chancellor Nancy Cantor made a $500 donation toward Obama’s campaign. In general, SU employees contributed significantly more to democratic campaigns, donating $65,734 to 12 different candidates and democratic organizations. Of those candidates, Obama and Maffei received the most money, garnering $41,409 and $15,650, respectively. Obama received more contributions from SU employees this election than in 2008, when he received a total of $7,500 from 13 employees. In contrast, Maffei received less money this election than during this 2010 congressional campaign, when he raised $21,275 from 24 SU employees. During her 2010 congressional campaign, Buerkle received only $50 from SU employees. This year, she received no money from SU employees. But Buerkle wasn’t the only Republican whose campaign received few donations from SU employees. Contributions to Republican candidates were significantly less, with $13,150 going to six different candidates and the Republican National Committee. Of the six candidates, Republican presidential nominee former Gov. Mitt Romney received the second least amount of money, getting only $1,550 from five contributions. While most of the donations from SU employees went to local or New York state races, a few went to candidates running for office clear across the country. Steven Brechin, a sociology professor, contributed $250 to Derek Kilmer’s successful run


store this year has not been unusual and the policy change has not affected the number of thefts in the store, Maitland said. DPS has increased property checks in academic buildings and libraries, and has also placed posters and table tents in study areas reminding students not to leave their possessions unattended, Callisto said. He added that some arrests have recently been made in regard to campus thefts. Despite warnings, Dan Eiding, a freshman entrepreneurship and emerging enterprises and finance major, said he has left his valuables unattended several times while in the E.S. Bird Library and has never had anything stolen. “There’s always a lot of people around,” he said. “I feel like at Syracuse people are generally nice, and thefts are a rare occurrence.” Callisto said he thinks students continue to leave their belongings unattended partially because of a false sense of security. Either they

To this she responds by saying that along with an increase in farmers markets, sales of organics have been rising and food movements are advocating for reform. “You can take responsibility by voting with your fork every time you make a food choice,” Nestle said. Kim Liu, a fifth-year student in nutrition science on the pre-med track, said she liked that Nestle discussed how many health problems are related to nutrition, but aren’t resolved because manufacturing companies fight them. Said Liu: “It’s amazing how much effort they combine to have these unhealthy foods.”

for a congressional seat in Washington state. Kilmer was one of Brechin’s students when Brechin taught at Princeton University and the two were close, Brechin said in an email. They have stayed in touch over the years and when Kilmer called to ask for a donation, Brechin said he couldn’t refuse. “During his undergraduate days we would have office conversations about politics. It is heartwarming to see him grow into his political career,” he said. “I predict he will be a future governor of the state of Washington, and maybe more.”  Outside of the two major political parties, an SU employee contributed $250 to Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) and his campaign for the Republican presidential nomination and another donated $1,000 to Ursula Rozum, a Green Party candidate in New York’s 24th Congressional District. Vincent Lloyd, an assistant professor of religion, donated the $1,000 to Rozum because, he said, her candidacy enhanced debate within the congressional district. “I think regardless of what the election results were, Ursula’s candidacy made it possible to have a lively conversation about issues that would not have been on the table had Ursula not been running,” he said. While Rozum received only about eight percent of the vote, Lloyd said he didn’t feel the money was wasted. Rather, the amount of votes she received coupled with the past success of Green Party candidates in the district show that a third-party candidate could be elected in the future, he said. “I didn’t think that either Maffei or Ann Marie Buerkle were representing the values of many voters in our electoral district,” Lloyd said. “I thought it was important to support a candidate who would broaden the conversation.” @JessicaIannetta

are used to leaving their possessions unattended at home without problems or they have done so without repercussions on campus, he said. “It’s not that it’s automatically going to be stolen, so if people don’t experience it they don’t pay as much attention to it,” he said. O’Connor said that since her backpack was stolen, she has become more aware of leaving her belongings. While she said that at the time she was not aware she could carry her backpack in the bookstore, she also noted that students ultimately need to take responsibility for their belongings. “I should have put my backpack in a locker, but it’s like, from doing it so many other times, I was like, ‘Oh, it’ll be fine, I’m downstairs for five minutes,’” she said. Callisto emphasized that ultimately, thefts are avoidable. “These are preventable crimes,” he said. “Taking your backpack with you to go eat or go to the restroom is the best defense for being a victim of a larceny.”

It takes a village By Alexandra Hitzler



ity officials announced last week that Syracuse was selected as a finalist for the Bloomberg Philanthropies’ Mayors Challenge. The contest invited cities with 30,000 residents or more to propose ideas that would address a major social or economic issue, make it easier for residents or businesses to deal with city government, increase efficiency or enhance accountability and public participation, according to the Bloomberg Philanthropies website. Syracuse’s proposal was selected along with 19 other finalists out of a pool of 305 cities from 45 states that submitted applications, according to the website. For the contest, a team from Syracuse will create “The Syracuse International Village,”


and Provost Eric Spina. Adjunct professors work part time, typically only teaching one class, as they are often still employed in their profession while teaching at the university, making them a cheaper option for instruction, Spina said. But Spina said he thinks the decision of what professors to employ focuses far less on financial factors and more on the best way to deliver the curriculum to students. “We highly value each of the types of faculty members here and recognize for us to best prepare our students for the world, we want our students, over time, to be exposed to all of those types of faculty members,” Spina said. In addition, Spina said many professors are adjuncts due to their own life situation. Full-

Syracuse named finalist for philanthropic challenge, hopes to create community for local refugees, immigrants according to a press release from the Syracuse Office of the Mayor. This village would link refugee resettlement services and it would also start a small-business training and incubation marketplace for refugees and immigrants. The contest’s winning team will receive a grand prize of $5 million, said Alexander Marion, press secretary at the Mayor’s Office. Four additional runner-up teams will receive prizes of $1 million each to implement their projects, according to the release. The ideas of the 20 finalists were rated on four key criteria that include vision and creativity, ability to implement, potential for impact and potential for replication, according the release. The Syracuse team spent Monday and Tuesday in New York City for the challenge’s “Ideas Camp,” in which the teams collaborated to improve one another’s ideas and a range of

experts worked with the teams to refine and strengthen their ideas, Marion said. The cities will receive individualized coaching and must submit their final entries in January, and Bloomberg Philanthropies will choose the competition’s winners this spring, The Associated Press reported on Nov. 5. “It is flattering to be included as a finalist in the Bloomberg Philanthropies Mayors Challenge,” said Syracuse Mayor Stephanie Miner in the release. “Syracuse is a dynamic city with a vibrant immigrant community we are always trying to find new ways to serve. This innovative program will allow us to better outreach to our new American neighbors and welcome them into our community and local economy.”

time professors are in most cases looking for permanence, while some professors are part time because they don’t want to be tied down or are still looking for the right position somewhere else, he said. Jeff Simmons, an adjunct professor in the writing department at SU and vice president of the Adjuncts United union, said AU’s goal is to help adjuncts obtain multi-year contracts as well as benefits. “One of our ongoing issues with the university is to make sure as many faculty get that as possible,” Simmons said. “The highest benefits for adjuncts mean that they’re at the university longer, which provides more continuity for students.” Like many adjunct professors, Simmons is currently working at both SU and the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry. He said adjuncts with multiple jobs may have to limit office hours, but because he is always accessible via

email, he doesn’t feel it affects his ability to stay in contact with students. “I feel like mine get plenty enough of me,” Simmons said. Maura Cyr, a sophomore finance major, said adjunct professors being off campus would only cause problems for her if they didn’t keep in touch via email. “I personally am not much of a person who’s ever going to go to office hours or anything like that,” Cyr said. “Obviously a lot of people are, so I could see where that would be a problem for them.” Simmons has been an adjunct professor at many colleges including Onondaga Community College, Le Moyne College and now SU and ESF. If he were to move, he said he knows that as an adjunct he could probably find another job. Said Simmons: “But I’m happy where I’m at.”

Department of Public Safety officer spices up campus with homemade foods By Austin Pollack SCOVILLE SCALE 15,000,000



rew Davis was getting a haircut at a Small Road apartment when Department of Public Safety Officer Ryan Zarnowski put a jar of pickles and peppers in front of him and asked him to eat one. “When I tried them I was like, ‘Damn, this is good,’” said Davis, a sophomore political science major. “I didn’t know Officer Zarnowski could do this. I thought he was just your ordinary DPS officer.” Dressed from head to toe in a navy blue uniform, Zarnowski may appear intimidating due to his height, his upper body strength and the power

associated with wearing a badge. But under the uniform, Zarnowski is a gentle giant. A graduate of the State University of New York at Oswego with a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice, Zarnowski enjoys fishing, hunting, the Green Bay Packers and spending time with his wife and two young daughters. Five years ago, he started preparing pickles and peppers, a trend among his friends at the time. It joined the ranks of his other hobbies. “I have friends and neighbors I had grown up with who had watched me grow up and had kids the same age,” Zarnowski said. “They did it. I decided I wanted to do it myself and give it a try.” His process begins by purchasing

jars, jalapenos and cucumbers by the bushels from Ontario Orchards in Oswego, N.Y. He cleans the cucumbers and mixes in the vinegar and spices. The peppers are stuffed with Genoa salami and provolone cheese, a process that has to be done by hand. As time passed and his love grew, he wanted to make his hobby a legitimate company. He took an extra step by consulting with people on campus who have strong legal and business backgrounds. “I’ve talked to people at the Whitman School of Management to gain education on how to make it grow,” Zarnowski said. “I’ve also utilized the law school for the legal things, to get a nondisclosure form drawn up for the

He operates Zarbellatyn’s with the help of his mother, Judy DiMarco; his wife, Amy; and his friend, James Masclee. While working for DPS, Zarnowski advertises his products to those with whom he works. He said he won’t just share them with anybody. Zarnowski says communicating and building a relationship with the students can show that officers aren’t always out to discipline them, and


Ra Ra Riot’s Rebecca Zeller dishes on hometown concert By Erik van Rheenen ASST. FEATURE EDITOR

Pulp sat down with Rebecca Zeller, Setnor School of Music alumna and Ra Ra Riot violinist to talk about visiting old haunts, being back at her alma mater and plans to release Ra Ra Riot’s third studio album, “Beta Love,” in January.

The Daily Orange: What’s it like being back on campus? Rebecca Zeller: We’ve played in Syracuse a few times at Funk ’n Waffles and The Westcott Theater, but it’s great to get to play in a university building. It’s less strange and more exciting to be back, since I used to perform recitals

on the same stage as a student.

The D.O.: How about teaching classes in a university building? RZ: (Laughs.) It didn’t feel weird to not be a student because it’s been a while, but it did feel weird to be in front of a class. It’ll feel good if they all go well and everyone’s excited to do it. I had one ear-

lier (Monday) and I think it went well. It’s great to work with students like this.

The D.O.: Do you have plans to visit any of your old stomping grounds? RZ: We will be working while we’re here. We rented practice space downtown for rehearsals. But everyone’s excited to go to Alto Cinco, and we might

stop by Dinosaur Bar-B-Que, too. And we might grab drinks at Chuck’s. We’re here until Thursday afternoon, so we’ll get a chance to revisit some places.

The D.O.: Will you play any new songs on Wednesday? RZ: Probably at least one. We’ll see.

Life as student field hockey player takes practice, but is poetry in motion


hen Friedrich Schiller wrote his famous poem “Ode to Joy” in 1785, little did he know that some lowly Division-I Syracuse field hockey player would attempt to draw parallels between his celebration of brotherhood and her four years of being a student-athlete more than 200 years later. But I’m that fool. At times I hate it, at times I love it and last Sunday afternoon, I just about died from the ecstasy of making it to the final four in my last year of eligibility. Sure, we didn’t get much media coverage because no one really cares about field hockey when football finally wins. But for those with a smidgen of interest, the field hockey team is making its second appearance in the final four in program history. Lose and my life’s over, win and my life’s over — my student-athlete life, anyway. Here’s what being a student-athlete for four years feels like in 18th-century German ode style. Schiller: To virtue’s steep hill / It leads the


conversing with them over pickles and peppers could potentially benefit his company. “I also do it from a community-policing standpoint,” he said. “I want to get to know (students), to talk to you guys. I’m not just the mean guy with the badge trying to bust you guys. It has worked so far.” Like Davis, the political science major, sophomore Jeremy Blatt has also tasted the products. “It was very intriguing that a DPS officer is


sufferer on. Athlete Ode: Getting to the NCAA Tournament isn’t easy. In fact, if you’ve got a bad outlook, training like a dog might feel like a hellish mountain without a peak. Now that I’m about to fall off the side of a four-year-high Everest, all I want to do is go back to preseason base camp and start all over again. Schiller: Whoever has had the great fortune / To be a friend’s friend. Athlete Ode: There’s nobody in my life I have loved more, and at times liked less, than my teammates and coaches. And I don’t doubt the feeling

is mutual. That’s why being on a sports team is special: A teammate is a friendship forged in steel. Schiller: Run, brothers, run your race / Joyful, as a hero going to conquest. Athlete Ode: According to NCAA rules, a team can train up to 20 hours a week. On my team we train long and run far, sometimes up to 6 kilometers on game day. There’s an urban legend that four years of collegiate sport ages your body 10 years. Whether it’s true is irrelevant; all I know is that I now climb up stairs on all fours, and I like it that way. Schiller: Cannibals drink gentleness / And despair drinks courage. Athlete Ode: I can’t speak for cannibals, but I’ve never had a drop of alcohol during the school week. Ever. This might make me a loser in the eyes of the general population, but I couldn’t care less. I drink up the thrill of the fight and play on. How this strange behavior translates to non-athlete-real-people (NARP) life, I don’t want to

know. But I guess I’ll find out next week. Schiller: And whoever was never able to must creep / Tearfully away from this circle. Athlete Ode: The student-athlete’s life has been a cry-fest. I cry when I get sent off, when I play like a legend — almost never — when a Connecticut player tools me, when I win and when I lose. But athlete tears are a privilege because, according to William Frey, a doctor at the Ramsey Medical Center in Minneapolis, emotional tears contain stress hormones, compared to reflex tears that are almost 100 percent water. So next time you see athletes crying, leave them alone. They’re on their way to being heros. Schiller doesn’t say much about crossroads, but I know I’m at one. If you’re undergoing your own version of the athlete-NARP transition, be brave. Change is good.

capable of doing that,” Blatt said. “You could never guess when you meet the man that he has his own business. It was very impressive.” Blatt was impressed enough with the product that he would be willing to support him. “I told him, as soon as I tried them, that I’d be willing to buy a couple of jars,” he said. “They’re that good.” Sophomore Ben Hui has food and cooking in his blood. He is an avid cook. His mother owns a Chinese restaurant in his hometown, and in his spare time he enjoys watching the Food Network. Hui was fascinated to learn that this was a part of Zarnowski’s life off the job.

“I was pretty surprised,” Hui said. “But I was really surprised that he had such a unique hobby since you don’t really see canning as a hobby anymore.” Hui noted the distinction between Zarnowski’s pickles and the ones found elsewhere. He could tell by the taste that Zarnowski made these himself and put the time and attention into his product to make it as flavorful as it was. “When I first had it, it was distinctly not any deli pickle you get,” he said. “It wasn’t flimsy or bland. It clearly didn’t come out of a jar from a supermarket. It tasted homemade.” Although the business has its flaws financial-

ly and it continues to grow, Zarnowski envisions this playing a more significant role in his life once he decides to call it quits from DPS. All of these things bring a smile to his face. Even more, he finds pride in his work when he shares his product with others. “When I get that visual expression on people trying them, or the words out of their mouth, ‘this is the best thing I’ve ever eaten, I could eat the whole jar in one sitting,’ it puts a real smile on your face,” Zarnowski said. “It makes you feel good knowing that you did a good job and you put out a good product. That’s what I try and do.”

Batter up

every other wednesday in pulp

taylor barker | staff photographer Beer Belly Deli & Pub’s Beer Battered Eggplant Sandwich had a flaky coating and distinct beer taste. It didn’t overpower its olive mix and arugula.


Beer-soaked goodness brings new life to unappreciated area

By Danielle Odiamar STAFF WRITER

eer Belly Deli & Pub is the definition of a hole in the wall. Overshadowed by the Westcott Theater’s bright lights, the street community’s newest gastropub is easy to miss. But once you notice it, Beer Belly makes the overlooked strip of the otherwise energetic Westcott Street come alive. As our friendly waitress handed us our menus, one of my dining partners was disappointed to hear that the restaurant was out of bacon for the BLT as well as the sweet potato tater tots, which I was eager to try. But I got over it when I saw the Beer Battered Eggplant Sandwich ($8). I don’t love beer, but I love beerbattered anything, and eggplant was a new one for me. The flaky coating was crisp but thin and did not overpower the olive mix and the crisp arugula leaves. The beer flavor was distinct and, mixed with the pepper aioli, an unexpected complement to the eggplant. My friend decided on the Miller High Life and brown sugar-glazed ham sandwich ($10) instead and was more than satisfied with the

generous stack of ham. The meat was tender, perfectly blending savory and sweet, while the oozing cheddar cheese provided a sharp kick. My favorite part was the pungent tarragon mustard that blended the peppery taste of mustard and the slightly bittersweet flavor of tarragon that left a tingling sensation in your nose after each bite. Both sandwiches came on grilled ciabatta bread that was crisp and firm, but also soft to bite into. Each of the sandwiches also comes with one of Beer Belly’s appetizing sides. I ordered the sweet potato waffle fries with beer ketchup — a blend of ketchup, beer and sriracha, a Thai hot sauce. You could really taste the malt flavor from the beer, and the sriracha provided heat without being spicy. Our waitress was nice enough to also bring us the maple garlic aioli that the tater tots usually come with. The creamy dip was sweet, but had a garlic finish that satisfied all my taste buds. As we chatted over our food, we took our time eating, not realizing we ended up staying for over an hour, which is how you should feel when you have a great meal with attentive service. It was still early in the night, but the place started

to slowly fill up with people at the bar and a long table of friends laughing over drinks. My dining partners and I didn’t indulge in any drinks, but one glance over the drink menu, and it was clear that the place was called Beer Belly for a reason, though they offer quite a few wines as well that are all reasonably priced, just like the food. The most affordable items were on the Snacks part of the menu. My other two dining partners weren’t too hungry, so the grilled cheese with tarragon mustard and sliced tomato ($3) and the peanut butter and strawberry port jelly ($4) were just what they needed. The grilled cheese was gooey and crisp like a good grilled cheese should be. But with the added freshness from the tomato and the bite of the tarragon mustard, this sandwich outdid itself. The PB&J had me skeptical because I’m not a huge fan of the classic sandwich, but the strawberry port jelly converted me almost instantly. The atmosphere felt akin to a bar downtown. The decor was sparse, but it felt warm and inviting; the ambiance was lively, though people were just starting to trickle in; the vibe was rhythmic, but there was no music to carry a beat.

Gastropubs are generally celebrated as lively social spots that marry global flavor inspirations with traditional pub fair. Beer Belly Deli hits the nail right on the head and brings a distinct vibe and variety to Westcott Street in service, decor and food. @daniemarieodie

By Ryan Raigrodski STAFF WRITER

When Syracuse took off on its five-game road trip, head coach Paul Flanagan expected the team to win all five games. Instead, it won only two, ending its road trip with a 2-2-1 record. “I’m disappointed we didn’t win all five,” Flanagan said. “On paper we should have won all five. UConn is at the bottom of the heap. RIT is a brand-new Division-I team. I’m not very pleased with the last five games.” Part of the reason for the struggle has been the team’s inability to capitalize on scoring opportunities. The team has been getting many opportunities in close range, but has not been able to put the puck in the back of the net. “I think we really need to focus on burying our chances and finishing in front of the net,” SU forward Holly Carrie-Mattimoe said. Part of the issue has been that Laurie Kingsbury, who still is tied for the team lead in goals this season, missed every game on the road trip due to a concussion. Her scoring ability and size have been felt throughout the team, and it has been hard for the team to find someone to replace her scoring ability. “When you lose someone that plays with a lot of passion and is the type of player she is, it hurts certainly on the ice and on the bench and in the locker room,” Flanagan said. “You’re looking for someone to pick up the slack and we’ve had very little of that.” The injury crippled the second line that featured Melissa Piacentini and Shiann Dar-


The Syracuse offense struggled in its last five games, going 2-2-1. The team was without its leading goal-scorer, forward Laurie Kingsbury, during that stretch due to a concussion. Kingsbury has established herself as one of SU’s top playmakers early this year and was replaced in the lineup by defenders Kaillie Goodnough and Brittney Krebs. Here’s a look at Kingsbury’s production in her last five games compared to Goodnough’s and Krebs’ statistics in the team’s last five matchups: PLAYER

Before the injury the line had been pretty dominant on the ice and the three had developed chemistry. “It’s different,” Darkangelo said. “It’s different than playing with a player like her or even Tini, like I know how she plays now and we can read off each other.” The injury and the offensive struggles have caused the team to attempt to reshuffle the line to capitalize on scoring opportunities. The Orange tried moving defenders Kaillie Goodnough and Brittney Krebs to offense on the ice. But neither move really worked out, partly because of a lack of chemistry with who was on their line. “Playing forward is a lot different than playing D,” Goodnough said. “Its hard to get used to where other people are going to be.” While the team hopes to turn this around as it moves forward, the schedule will only get tougher from here. They soon play Robert Morris, who won its division last year, and No. 3 Clarkson. Not only that, but Flanagan said Kingsbury’s injury will still keep her sidelined for a while. This only makes the team’s recent struggles more frustrating to Flanagan. “We’ve got some tough games coming up,” Flanagan said. “I thought we could have fared better, but it’s behind us now and we’ve got to move forward.”

said Wilson possesses great instincts and has a “nose for the football” because of his ability to instantly appear wherever it goes. “Coach is always preaching, ‘Run to the ball,’ so I’m always running to the ball like all our other players do, and I just end up being in the right spots,” Wilson said. Wilson’s defensive pressure and instincts run in the family. His father, Jay, also played linebacker for Missouri from 1980-83 and left as the school’s all-time leading tackler. “He always wanted me to go here, but he never pressured me,” Wilson said. “I know he was real happy when it worked out for me to come here though. He’s a huge part of any success I have; I learned almost everything about football from him.” Wilson acknowledges his father as one of the driving forces of his success, but Jay says his playing style differs from that of his son,

“Coach is always preaching, ‘Run to the ball,’ so I’m always running to the ball like all our other players do, and I just end up being in the right spots.” Andrew Wilson


was probably pulling players down while, as you can see, he’s really jacking them up,” Jay said. Wilson’s hard-hitting nature has earned him the “Team Hammer Award” two years in a row. Coaches vote on it and give it to the player who

made the biggest hits throughout the season. With a defensive roster that includes fellow linebackers Zaviar Gooden and Donovan Bonner, that’s no easy feat. Head coach Gary Pinkel credits Wilson’s defensive prowess to his success and says he is as good as anyone when it comes to tackling. He also said he knows he is always going to get the maximum effort at every snap. Wilson stated that part of his inspiration for his playing style is derived from Ebner. It works well for him when they can play off each other during games. “(Ebner) said you’ve got to be mean out there and really not like the people you’re playing against,” Wilson said. Wilson says that is just an on-field persona. The game’s intensity and the need to make stops on defense is fuel for his passionate play. Ebner said that playing alongside Wilson is like having an extra appendage, someone he’s able to trust, especially when they’re in need of a big defensive play. “Andrew is about as dependable as you

can get, he is everywhere he needs to be on every snap,” Ebner said. “He knows what his job is and he gets it done. He’s really determined and if something bad happens, he doesn’t get rattled.” With their move to the SEC this season, the Tigers have had no time for nerves; they’ve had to step up to the learning curve quick to succeed in this conference. “It’s a whole different league, whole different group of teams and players; we’re not used to these offenses,” Wilson said. “We’ve been working on them, but we still have to get better.” Wilson said the Tigers’ defense is a cohesive group. It’s that bond that allows the defensive players to communicate so well during games. He reiterates that there are 10 other guys on the defensive side of the ball, and he wouldn’t have the opportunity to make plays without their contributions. “We’ve got a lot of great players on our defense, and I’m just one of them,” Wilson said. “I play hard and try to be in the right spots.”

Aikido members practice self-defense, boost peace of mind By Adelyn Biedenbach STAFF WRITER

Two claps from the sensei are the only sounds heard in the room on the lower level of Archbold Gymnasium. The group calmly stops and comes into “seiza,” or a proper seated position, to await the next movement instruction. For more than a decade, the Syracuse University Aikido Club has practiced the martial

art, moving in this cycle throughout a class that builds peace of mind, self-defense techniques and provides an escape for students. “Silence is a way of culminating the Aikido body,” said Peter Katz, English doctoral student who has been studying Aikido for two and a half years. Katz explained that a translation of the Japanese word would convey something like the way

of energy, force and harmony. The on-campus group cultivates this harmony and energy with three practices a week. Currently there are about 15 to 20 active members with different levels of experience. But the number frequently changes from semester to semester, and membership is open for participants to show up and study. “You don’t punch, you don’t kick, you just redirect everything,” said Richard Thomas, who is new to the Aikido Club. Thomas, a senior biology major, had previously studied taekwondo. He said that Aikido looks to receptive movement, whereas taekwondo and other martial arts tend to be more offensive. “What I’ve noticed is that it’s different in the sense that you take your opponents energy and you use it against them,” said Nathan Brown, a junior computer arts major at SU. Brown said that different “dojos,” or places of practice, take varying approaches to the art. Some focus on practical applications and real life scenarios, and others on the philosophical and relaxation factors. “It’s not about hurting your opponent, its about making sure you can pin them down,” Brown said. “A practical use would be to pin someone down and call the cops.” Like most martial arts, Aikido depends on mind and body. Full concentration channels the harmony and energies, as the movement responds instead of takes action. A regular class structure for the Syracuse group begins with stretching, warming up and

going through very basic stances. The students quietly mimic the movement as they begin and prepare for the rest of the class. For the remaining time, the “sensei,” or teacher, will lead a cycle of the art, switching between demonstrating an encounter or movement and observing the group try it. The students will pair up and practice the conversationlike art, usually resulting in one of the partners rolling to the ground. “I see it more as like testing what the limits of your body are,” Katz said, allowing his practice to answer questions such as: “Can I do a forward roll?” and “What does it feel like to get thrown over someone’s hip?” While the level of experience is split, more familiar members whisper tips quietly to newer ones as they work on their meditative-like movements. “If you are very good at this, it doesn’t require a lot of energy at all; you can go for hours without getting tired,” Thomas said. Regular corrections and commentary come from the sensei to individuals throughout the evening and each time, the response is a quiet bow. All the while, these gestures are quiet and adjustments are made. The practice remains reverent and traditional, but there is a welcoming and eager atmosphere. “While I’m upside down or in the air, I’m not thinking about finishing (qualifying exams) or what I’m going to teach on Wednesday,” Katz said. “It’s a way of just clearing my mind and relaxing.”

Gardiner’s ambitious prediction proved to be prophetic, as the Dick MacPherson-coached 1987 team went 11-0 during the regular season. The Orangemen came back against Virginia Tech, obliterated favored Penn State and fended off West Virginia en route to an unblemished regular season 25 years ago. Despite a 16-16 tie in the Sugar Bowl against Southeastern Conference powerhouse Auburn, Johnston looks back on the season as the most incredible run of his college or professional career. Johnston said the 1987 season trumps winning three Super Bowls with the Dallas Cowboys because of the way the team rose up, accepted the challenge and went undefeated. “That’s my most special season,” Johnston said. “That 1987 group was just something unique. We weren’t supposed to do that. We were nobody, and we pushed it all the way to No. 4.” MacPherson often addressed his players with the mindset that an undefeated season wasn’t out of reach, but they had to take it one game at a time to get to that point. “I think that in 1987 we thought we had a chance to win the national championship,” MacPherson said. “That’s how close we were.” After decisive wins over Maryland, Rutgers and Miami (Ohio) to start the season, the players realized they had a shot at running the table. Down by double-digits against Virginia Tech in the fourth game of the season, the Orange went into the locker room crushed and out of whack. Offensive coordinator George DeLeone walked to the chalkboard and wrote one word. Character. “We’re going to see if this team has any,” DeLeone said dramatically, walking away immediately after his pithy proposition.

That message was understood and embraced by the Orangemen, as the game took a complete 180 in the second half. Syracuse scored 28 unanswered points and came away with a 35-21 victory in front of a stunned Hokie crowd. “It was a tough game,” Johnston said. “They had a couple of pro prospects and it was a few weeks before the Penn State game. There was the fear that we would look ahead.” After knocking off Missouri, the game that Syracuse had been trying not to look ahead to for months was finally its only focus. That “one to go” mentality was more pertinent than ever, as the No. 13 Orangemen had to knock off No. 10 Penn State to keep its undefeated season alive. SU did just that, throttling favored Penn State

48-21 at the Carrier Dome. MacPherson even took out some starters in the fourth, after his team built a 41-0 cushion heading into the final quarter. Penn State surged back to make the score 41-21, but the starters came back in to seal the deal. Johnston said the starters went right down the field to go up 48-21, leaving no doubt about who was the sharper team. “Everything we did we did right that day,” Johnston said. “It was amazing. I just remember how much it meant to everybody. I think it had been 17 years since we had beaten Penn State.” Following the decisive win, Penn State head coach Joe Paterno walked into the Syracuse

locker room and congratulated the Orangemen. “He said we were the best team he’d seen all season,” Johnston said. “That to me was our statement game. That was huge for us.” Gardiner remembers his team fumbling the ball and coming up short in the final minutes against PSU in 1985. The win two years later stands out as one of the highlights for the former strong safety and punter. “Emotionally, I think guys really wanted to beat Penn State,” Gardiner said. “It was a team that we hadn’t beaten. We played them and we beat them pretty good on national television.” After wins against Colgate, Pittsburgh, Navy and Boston College, SU was one game away from a perfect regular season, the Orangemen’s first since the 1959 national championship team. Down 31-24 to West Virginia with 1:30 remaining, it was go-time for SU. Johnston said he’s watched the game on tape several times over the years. He gets excited every time he sees the shot of the Syracuse offensive players right after West Virginia claimed the lead with less than two minutes to go. They were ready to finish what they started. Quarterback Don McPherson ignited a drive downfield, capped by a touchdown pass to tight end Pat Kelly. Then, MacPherson called a timeout and brought his seniors over to huddle up and make a season-defining decision. Syracuse could kick the extra point and finish 10-0-1, or the Orangemen could go for two and ensure that a tie wouldn’t be possible. They took the risk. The play was originally designed for Johnston. The fullback said McPherson froze the inside linebacker, though, and made the right play. He delivered a pinpoint pass to Michael Owens for the two-point conversion and the win. Said Gardiner: “It was a culmination to our season that couldn’t have been written any better,”




the SU lead to 12. Maine didn’t cut the lead to single digits for the rest of the game. The Black Bears actually matched up with Syracuse in the size department, which is why Hillsman said he insisted on getting out in transition and settling for jump shots instead. “We pushed the ball and we got into our

offense early,” Hillsman said. “I thought that was the key. We had to get some early offense and not have to really shrink the floor and cause us problems getting the ball inside.” For the second straight game, Brittney Sykes, Brianna Butler and Cornelia Fondren all started. Sykes led the freshmen with 29 minutes, with Butler right behind with 24. Fondren played just 14, but went 3-for-3 from the field, including a 3-pointer. “We need them,” Hillsman said. “We need their contributions, we need their depth on the court and we have to do everything we can to keep them in the game and keep them playing.”

Late run sends Orange to win against Maine By David Wilson ASST. COPY EDITOR

“Syracuse football: 11-0 1987, one to go” on the bill and tacked it up on the wall of the tavern. “It was a one-week-at-a-time mantra,” said Johnston, the fullback on the 1987 team. “It all kind of started before the season even began.”

For nearly 30 minutes, Maine gave Syracuse a scare. With 11:19 minutes remaining, the Black Bears were hanging around, trailing by just seven points. Then the Orange proved why SYRACUSE 68 it was the MAINE 44 team with NCAA tournament hopes and Maine was 0-2. SU went on a 17-0 run over the next 8:41 and held the Black Bears to just four points on one field goal the rest of the way. “Our man-to-man won us the game today,” Syracuse head coach Quentin Hillsman said in a phone interview. “When you keep people in front of you and you guard, that’s your offense you’re going to have and you’re going to have those kinds of runs.” That run fueled Syracuse in a 68-44 win over Maine on Tuesday night in Orono, Maine. The team used its athleticism and depth to get out in transition and defeat the Black Bears. Orange center Kayla Alexander managed a double-double with 19 points and 12 rebounds, while Elashier Hall keyed the decisive run offensively for the Orange with nine points, seven of which came on jump shots. Hall kick-started the run with a jumper with 10:08 remaining. On the very next possession, Hall knocked down a 3-pointer to stretch

hough the Missouri defense has been streaky all season, consistency hasn’t been a problem for linebacker Andrew Wilson. The redshirt junior is third on the team with 63 tackles and has forced four fumbles, tied for the team lead and sixth in the nation. In Missouri’s quadruple-overtime 51-48 win over Tennessee last week, Wilson tallied eight tackles, five of which were solo. He also batted down a pass on a twopoint conversion attempt to force the decisive final overtime. Wilson and the Missouri defense,
