TITANS EXERCISE TACTICAL SKILLS AND LEADERSHIP

WILLIAM CAMARGO / Daily Titan Members of CSUF’s Army ROTC head into an exercise at Camp Pendleton. The field exercises focused on aspects such as leadership skills and how to handle confrontations with civilians. Evaluations were also given to platoon leaders at the end of each exercise.

Cadets from Cal State Fullerton’s Reserve Officer’s Training Corps (ROTC) program conducted their semi-annual field training exercise this weekend at the Camp Pendleton Marine base. The Titan Battalion was joined

by Cal State Long Beach, UC Irvine, Cal State Dominguez Hills and University of Southern California. From Friday through mid-Sunday, cadets were in the field training in squad and platoon-level combat exercises. Armed with real rifles firing blank rounds and weighed down by 40-pound rucksacks and tactical gear, they practiced everything from patrolling formations to interacting with civilians on the battlefield. They lived off of packaged meals,

Ready-To-Eat (MREs) and slept in patrol formations under the stars, switching security shifts with their patrol mates. “The point behind this FTX (field training exercise) was to give our MS3’s (third-year cadets) experience in squad sticks and platoon level patrolling in preparation for what they are going to come across during their evaluation at Ft. Louis during Warrior Forge,” said Master Sgt. Anthony Coates, one of the noncommissioned officers for

the Titan Battalion. The exercises were split into two categories: squad and platoon exercises. Cadets were assigned leadership roles for each of the exercises and were evaluated by senior-level cadets (MS4s) from other campuses. Different surprise variables, such as indirect fire, suicide bombers and booby traps were added to each exercise at the evaluator’s discretion. “The way training goes, you try to add

The Tucker Wildlife Sanctuary hosted its fourth annual Spring Fair and Art Festival Saturday and Sunday. The sanctuary, which is owned and operated by the Cal State Fullerton College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, opened its doors to community members to tour the facility and enjoy different events. There was live music, art and nature events, a barbecue, activities for children and an Earth Day celebration at the family-friendly event. More than 50 vendors were there to help families enjoy nature, as well as sell different arts and crafts. Admission was $5, but children under the age of 12 got in for free. The proceeds went to the sanctuary’s education program and transportation scholarships. The scholarships help bring disadvantaged students from local schools to come visit the sanctuary. Karon Cornell, sanctuary director, said this is a family-friendly event that everyone will enjoy. “This annual spring event is a great way to introduce the community to Tucker Wildlife

extra challenges,” said Cadet Joe Lopez, a senior political science major. The squad-level exercises were primarily based on combating opposing forces (OpFor). Squads were tasked with moving from point to point or attacking objectives while ambushing or receiving fire. OpFor soldiers were role-played by other cadets.

Families and guests also had the chance to enjoy live music from bands like Wimberly Bluegrass Band, High Class Hillbillies and Riff Raff. Also at the event was Mark Mendez, a Chumash Indian, who presented a program to attendees on California Indians. It focused on the daily life of early native Californians. There was also a “Leave No Trace” class for families to enjoy.

Brady said it was not just the beautiful and natural surroundings that attracted over 2,000 people to the sanctuary this weekend. “(It was the) great bands, amazing food, unique handmade art, arts and crafts, and, of course, the beautiful sanctuary grounds,” Brady said. Some of the artwork for sale included ceramics, jewelry, oil and watercolor paintings, soap, candles, knitted and crocheted items, copper and metal jewelry, yard art, handmade purses and eco-friendly totes.

The Communications Department at Cal State Fullerton will be hosting its 34th annual Communications Week Monday through Friday. The weeklong event will include professionals from all communications fields who will be meeting with students and providing information for potential jobs and internships. Students from the College of Communications, which includes all majors like journalism, public relations, radio-TV-film, photography, advertising, and entertainment and tourism can expect to find a week filled with helpful and informative activities. This year’s festival will include a student-run conference and over 80 communications professionals. The annual Communications Week began in 1978 and has since showcased thousands of speakers from all aspects of the communications fields. A student task force from the College of Communications plans and organizes all aspects of Communications Week. Groups within the task force

include the executive team, the scheduling committee, the logistics committee and the communications committee. The task force is in charge of making sure that every aspect of the events week runs smoothly. Comm Week is also supported in part by the Associated Students, Inc., who helped fund the events. For many students, the event will be a chance to get their feet inside the door of the communications world before graduating. “I think it’s important because Comm Week is a great way to network with other professionals and celebrate the advancement of the field,” said Sabrina Valles, 19, a public relations major. “I’m really excited. It’s my first year going, so I can’t wait to attend the different events.” Valles said among the events being held, she is most excited to attend “Flappers and Fedoras,” a Casino night to be hosted by the Orange County Public Relations Society of America and Public Relations Student Society of America on Wednesday.

Hundreds walk for a cause at CSUF Colleges Against Cancer hosts a 24hour event for cancer ANIBAL ORTIZ Daily Titan

More than 300 people and 42 teams attended Cal State Fullerton’s fourth annual Relay for Life event Friday and Saturday. Participants walked, ran and made their way around the lawn in front of the Engineering and Computer Science Building from 5 p.m. Friday to 5 p.m. Saturday, a 24-hour period, in order to help raise awareness and funds for cancer research. “This has definitely been the best at CSUF yet,” said Danielle Riniolo, event chair. “Everyone had a good time. It was fun and successful.” The event helped Colleges Against Cancer collect more than $23,500 throughout their fundraising, Riniolo said. “It’s 24 hours because we want to signify that cancer never sleeps, so neither will we,” said Kelly Kim, a fourth-year CSUF student and cancer survivor who was diagnosed on two different occasions. Kim, who was on the committee during its start four years ago, said

cancer awareness is not a priority at many universities. Teams set up booths to raise funds that will be donated to the American Cancer Society. Riniolo said there are three parts associated with the relay event: remember, celebrate and fight back. Friday night gave participants a chance to reflect in silence during the Luminaria Ceremony. White paper bags were placed along the inner rim of the walkway, allowing the somber crowd to place neon glow sticks inside the decorated bags as a sign of remembrance for the lives of people who were lost to cancer and for those are currently fighting it. But just as the overnight gloom departed, the mood was quickly lifted, and the event turned once again into that of a celebration. Live bands, music, movies and games were made available for everyone to enjoy throughout the 24 hours. The sun’s warmth Saturday gave energetic participants an excuse to refresh themselves through the use of water balloons and water guns. People of all ages, college groups, friends and families joined the walk to raise awareness. “In my generation — when I

was younger — if you got cancer, (then) it was a death sentence,” said Francine Ana, a sister and mother of a family who was affected by cancer. “Nowadays, there are more people that can survive cancer.” Ana, 59, who participated alongside her family, credits early detection as a vital role to surviving cancer. “I don’t know if they understand completely what cancer is,” she said, referring to her 10-year-old grandchildren who played close by with a group of fraternity students. A “Fight Back” tent was also made available with information about cancer treatment and the American Cancer Society among a list of other informational pamphlets including Proposition 29, the California Cancer Research Act expected for the June 2012 ballot. Some set up sleeping bags and tents to sleep in while others found a preferred spot on the lawn or the cement to take naps on.

Although few took part in dressing for each themed lap, the walking never ended. “One of the things that brings people back is a sense of community,” something Riniolo said is uncommon for students at CSUF. Last year’s event took place on the campus’ track, which many felt left too big of a gap between groups, Riniolo said. “It’s a really cool way for us to get together, network together and feel like we are working toward a purpose,” she said. Speakers, including Congressman Ed Royce, also talked to participants about the importance of cancer research. “The National Cancer Institute spends about $5 billion a year on research. This helps raise money primarily for research for the biological phenomenon that is cancer,” said Royce, who attends the event annually. Colleges Against Cancer and CSUF’s Relay for Life committee

The 2012 Midyear Economic Forecast, presented by Cal State Fullerton’s Mihaylo College of Business and Economics, was held Thursday at the Hyatt Regency in Irvine. The conference was the eighth in the last several years. The event, sponsored by Commerce West Bank and Capital Pacific Homes, had two CSUF faculty members as the main speakers. Anil Puri, Ph.D., and Mira Farka, Ph.D., of the Mihaylo College of Business and Economics presented the information gathered by the department. The forecast predicted the economic climate of Orange County over the next few years and presented what the possible challenges and solutions were based off the data. The event itself

had a full house of guests, ranging from bank staff to small business owners. Puri began the presentation and displayed a brief summary of the data, while Farka went into more detail on solutions and why certain problems affect the economy the way they do. Their slides dealt with consumer confidence, job growth and short- and long-term unemployment. Puri, who is also the dean of the Mihaylo College of Business and Economics, said the forecast this year is different from last year’s because “the national economy is finally moving toward recovery from the Great Recession.” “But at the same time, this is a very tentative recovery,” said Puri. “Last year it also started out very well, and then it sort of petered out in the second half of 2011.” To ensure that the 2012 economy doesn’t fall into the same pattern as was seen in 2011, Puri said several challenges would need to be overcome like the problem with the housing market. “The recovery is going to be slow because the housing market is not expected to improve for quite some time,” Puri said. Not all problems will be domestic though. Puri said that oil prices, foreign markets and even natural calamities will have an impact on the economy. He gave examples such as China’s economic slowdown and the Iranian geopolitical situation. As far as solutions, Puri said the government has been doing quite a bit, but other actions need to be taken. Businesses have to feel more confident, and more jobs have to be created. Stephanie Juneau, a senior vice president/manager at Commerce West Bank, who works with business owners and helps manage loans, attended the conference and spoke about the forecast event. “My takeaway (from) the last

have been planning the event since September 2011. Colleges Against Cancer is a national organization of college students, faculty and staff who work together with the American Cancer Society. Orange County currently has three chapters involved with Colleges Against Cancer. Those interested in donating to CSUF’s Relay for Life have until Aug. 31 to make donations at Relay for Life’s website on the CSUF chapter’s page.

A Department of Motor Vehicles employee pleaded guilty Wednesday to 42 felonies including altering public documents and computer fraud. Fullerton resident Michelle Carbajal will spend at least seven months behind bars, according to The OC Register. In exchange for $23,000 from 12 people, Carbajal modified the records of their driver’s licenses to show that they passed the written and driving tests to attain commercial licenses. The crimes took place between Sept. 9, 2008 and April 27, 2010 at the Fullerton DMV, where she had worked for nine years. Carbajal is scheduled to be formally sentenced July 6 to four years in custody. With good behavior, her sentence will end after serving seven months at the Orange County jail. She was investigated by the DMV when her supervisor became suspicious of her. The information they found was eventually turned over to the district attorney’s office.

The 25th annual Hispanic Scholarship Golf Tournament took place at the Black Gold Golf Club in Yorba Linda on April 20. The event was open to the public and helped raise funds for Cal State Fullerton students. The tournament’s goal this year was to raise $125,000. Last year, it raised $108,000, and 80 students each received a $1,500 scholarship. As of today, about 1,000 students have benefitted from the scholarships, which have totaled more than $1 million. Silas H. Abrego, interim vice president for student affairs and a tournament founder, feels today’s economy makes it harder for low-income students to pursue a college degree, according to CSUF’s website. “Paying for a college education continues to be challenging. The cost of higher education has increased rapidly, but the family median income has not kept pace. And, affordability still is a concern for many students. The tournament is one way we support them,” said Abrego.

couple of years is that there are definitely domestic pressures, but there are international and global pressures as well,” said Juneau. “It has always been that way, but, at least for myself in banking in a Southern California bank, I am paying more attention. And the message I got from Dr. Puri … is that we’re impacted by what’s going on in the European countries as well.” Juneau agreed that since Orange County does a lot of foreign trading and shipping, that could be the reason it would be so affected by the international market. However, she said we’re seeing positive trends, especially in employment, because she has clients that have told her they are in a hiring mode. That might be good news for some of the students who were also at the Economic Forecast. Diane Romero, Mark Mejia and Tom Clark are all economics majors at CSUF and were helping out at the event. “We represent the economics association, so we’re very familiar with the professors and their work,” said Romero. “It’s basically just another step into the economics world and (seeing) all the current events.” The three students volunteered to help set up at the forecast event and they were able to see all the attendees as well as meet with many of them for possible job opportunities or internships.

Arrest in Cold Case Rape Police arrested 51-year-old Joseph Thornton Friday in connection with a 1981 rape and murder case. Blanca Stella Negrete was found raped and strangled to death near her Whittier apartment. Police could not find any clues and the investigation went cold. Lt. Kent Miller said the charges placed on Thornton were for the rape and death of Negrete. Since the alleged crime, Thornton has been arrested and faced with unrelated domestic violence charges. Detectives investigating the cold case evidence from Negrete’s apartment extracted DNA and had it tested at the Los Angeles County Crime Lab. Thornton’s DNA was matched during the lab work.

TRAINING: Before heading into the field and practicing various scenarios, members plan their mission ...Continued from page 1 Prior to any action or movement in the field, the cadets went through a rigorous briefing process. Squad and platoon leaders were bombarded with vital mission information that they jotted down as quickly as possible into small notebooks to relay to their squad. After relaying the information, squad leaders mapped out the mission plan on the ground with laminated paper symbols. This allowed the entire squad to have a clear mental picture of the mission. After the initial planning phase was complete, cadets practiced scenarios such as fire and maneuvering, patrolling formations and dealing with potentially hostile civilians. Squads were given two hours to plan and complete their mission. Cadets and OpFor were armed with standard issue M4 and M16 rifles and M249 and M240B light machine guns. As they moved from objective to objective during the scenarios, they focused on moving in wedge formations, scanning the battlefield for targets and watching for the hand signals of their squad mates. When they were engaged by OpFor, instructors emphasized a concept called “violence of action.” In order to motivate their squad mates to react quickly and accurately to incoming fire, squad leaders had to yell their commands with force and make tactical decisions quickly. Squad mates were required to mirror the commands of their leaders and move with force. At the platoon-level exercises, which involved two squads of eight to 12 soldiers, violence of action became a problem at times. Cadets learned just how difficult it is to lead an element of over twenty soldiers under fire. Platoon leaders who scored an “E” for exemplary in their squad evaluations had excellent communication and delegation skills at all levels of leadership from briefing to combat. But most importantly, these leaders kept calm in the face of disarray. Cadet Ramon Aguas, a junior criminal justice major, faced this chaos while serving as an assistant platoon leader in the second field exercise Saturday. His platoon leader and another soldier were killed by a suicide bomber, leaving

him in command of the 20 remaining troops. “It was really chaotic because we were being engaged by different sides,” he said. Aguas managed to assume command successfully by organizing his troops and responding to the threat effectively. He felt as though his ability to delegate tasks to his squad leaders is what allowed him to be successful. “It’s not really about telling people what to do, it’s more about directing,” Aguas said. By only giving commands to the two squad leaders, Aguas was able to retain a clear picture of the entire situation and respond in a cool fashion. Lopez said that cool-headedness is the primary quality that evaluators are looking for in a squad or platoon leader. Without a calm leader, the chaos caused by indirect and direct rifle fire is only exacerbated. During platoon exercises, cadets experienced an even more unpredictable variable — civilians on the battlefield. Leaders were warned of civilians in the mission during their briefings and were expected to approach and handle them in a peaceful way while maintaining the security and safety of their men. In many of the scenarios, civilians, who were role-played by other cadets, were mildly hostile toward the soldiers. They openly tested the boundaries of the platoons’ 360-degree security perimeters and spoke Spanish to make communication with the platoon leader difficult. In many

instances they made demands, to which cadets were not supposed to make any promises. Interacting with civilians successfully gave platoon leaders information on the locations of OpFor and weapons caches. An unsuccessful encounter with a civilian could make the mission more difficult. Unhappy civilians could potentially call in OpFor and purposefully leave cadets in the dark on the location of improvised explosive devices. After three days of almost constant exercises, cadets walked back to their forward operating base, tired and dirty. For Lopez, leaving his final FTX was bittersweet. Since he was a freshman cadet, he looked forward to learning all of the tactical and leadership skills that the upper-class cadets had learned by their final FTX. Leaving the Titan Battalion and his friends there to commission as an officer in the Army was a sad but exciting moment for Lopez. He is confident the ROTC program and the FTX weekends prepare cadets fully for the month long Warrior Forge, or LDAC, evaluation that candidates go through during the summer after their junior year. “There’s no box that they leave unchecked when we head out there,” Lopez said. “They give us all of the tools we need.” After a long weekend with little sleep, cadets get Monday off from physical training and time to reflect on the skills and experience they gained over the weekend.

SANCTUARY: Festivals coincide with Earth Week ...Continued from page 1 Drought-tolerant native plants were also for sale in Tucker’s greenhouse. Attendees participated in bird-watching walks, craft activities and face painting for children. Children also got the chance to spend time at the bird observation porch, where they could overlook the Modjeska Creek that runs through the sanctuary. After preparing the sanctuary grounds for the Spring Fair and Art Festival several months ago, Cornell was excited to see how it turned out. The festivals coincided with the Earth Week festivities, which worked well with the message, tone and overall themes at the sanctuary this weekend. “(The Spring Fair and Art Festival) is always in April, and Earth Day gave us an additional focus,” Brady said. For Kelly Serrano, going to the sanctuary for the festival is just another opportunity to spend quality

time with her husband and her kids. “We came here last year, and we were so excited to come back this year. My husband and I are both lawyers, so we get busy, and being able to come out here and have a little fun outside with our kids is great,” said Serrano. “The weather was perfect, the kids had a great time and we just absolutely can not wait to come back next year.” On Sunday, attendees were able to tour the Arden Helena Modjeska Historic House and Gardens. The century-old home of renowned Shakespearean actress Madame Helena Modjeska is located by Santiago Creek in Modjeska Canyon, close to the sanctuary grounds. The house is a designated national historic landmark. The Tucker Wildlife Sanctuary is a 12-acre nonprofit preserve in Modjeska Canyon on the outskirts of Orange County. Its mission is to support science and environmental education while acting as a sanctuary for the preservation of the local native habitat and wildlife.

Now, in her last year at CSUF, she has finally gotten the opportunity to be involved in the week’s events. As part of the school’s American Advertising Federation team, an advertising organization on campus that competes in a national student advertising competition, she has helped come up with an advertising campaign for Nissan, which AAF has been working on since August and will be presenting Tuesday. Dame said the event helps students by allowing them the chance to listen to speakers who help them find ways of getting jobs in the industry and tips for internships that can go a long way. “I’m definitely planning on attending Comm Week all week long,” said Dame. “Hopefully, I’ll make time to go to multiple speakers and check it all out.

There’s so many students who are in the communications majors … but Comm Week (as a) whole kind of shows you how it all ties together.” The event will have subjects ranging from social media to the evolution of radio and field reporting.

Proposed CSU faculty strike hurts students Professors should not take away classroom time when union negotiations fail to meet demands STEPHEN MCGLADE Daily Titan

After 22 months of negotiations with Cal State University management, the California Faculty Association (CFA), the entity that represents CSU faculty, has resorted to voting on whether to accept their new contracts or strike. The CFA asserts that the CSU’s proposed plans hurt the possibility of CSU’s providing quality, affordable higher education. The proposals include salary cuts, increased executive compensation, increased student fees and privatization of university extension programs. Teachers had admitted to hoping the negotiations did not end in a strike, yet the teacher’s union decided to put it to a vote. The CFA encourages faculty to “vote to strike or fail to defend quality education.” The CFA claims that without a fair contract, faculty will be unable to provide quality education to students. This brings to mind the question of how teachers could provide quality education when they are preparing for strikes and partaking in them? The strikes would take teachers out of the classroom and make them unavailable during their normal office hours. As a fifth year student of the university, I have seen the tuition almost double from when I started in fall 2007.

I was enrolled during the 2009-2010 school year during the “furlough day” period, when faculty members were required to take two unpaid days off per month to balance out their salary cuts. Tuition was also on the rise, meaning that students were paying more and getting less from the university. The potential strike would present a similar situation. If the vote passes, the strike would take a form of a rolling strike, which means the faculty of one of the 23 CSU campuses would strike for two days. Then, after one day, faculty of another campus in line would strike for two days. This would only translate to two days of faculty absence per campus per semester. However, it is unclear of how long the strike will last or if the CFA will feel greater measures must be taken to “defend quality education.” Another CFA goal of the strike would be to raise awareness and bring the “deterioration of academic standards” to the attention of the public. However, teachers voluntarily leaving the classroom for two days does not scream higher academic standards. It is clear that the CSU management has made unfair proposals, but making the students suffer for the failed negotiations is even more unfair. Students should not have to make more sacrifices than they already do. It is tough for students to be OK with teachers striking after they have paid their skyrocketing tuition. We have paid to come to class and get an education from quality educators. It is just two days per semester, but those are two of our days.

MIKE WHITE / Daily Titan After two weeks of picketing by both students and faculty, the California Faculty Association (CFA) fulfilled its promise of holding a one-day strike Nov. 18, 2011 at both CSU Dominguez Hills and CSU East Bay. They will consider doing so again this year.

The strike is intended to send a message to the CSU executives, but in the long run, is it really for the sake of the students? If it is really for us, why don’t we get a say in the matter? Is taking time away from the classroom really going to improve the quality of education? Is this measure effectively going to improve the CSU situation? The strike seems to make sense on the surface, but after a second look, it seems a little contradictory. Perhaps a strike is not the wisest decision. Students may welcome the two days off, but it is not what they

paid for. We pay too much in tuition to afford any more cutbacks to our education. For the faculty to go on strike, it would impact our current academic life. It would also open the door for future interruptions of our classroom time. Getting the support of the student body could really help the faculty’s cause. However, the student body has not been consulted in any way. Since we do not have a say in the matter, we are forced to accept these type of conditions without having the power to stop it.

Coachella Festival: Growing bigger and better since 1999 The music fest has become massively popular for a reason ANGEL MENDOZA Daily Titan

The last weekend of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival wrapped up yesterday. Some of the biggest names in music like Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg, Radiohead and The Black Keys, just to name a few, came out and enthralled hundreds of thousands of fans through the course of both weekends.

There’s been a growing feeling from some individuals that festivals like this are becoming too popular and going away from their “indie” roots. Just because they keep on growing and obtaining commercial success, it doesn’t necessarily make them too big for their own good. More musical acts are given an opportunity to showcase their talents and more fans are given an opportunity to discover new acts and enjoy some of their favorites already. Coachella 2012 tickets went on sale on Jan. 13, at noon Eastern time and were completely sold out by 3 p.m. that very same day. It is

undoubtedly one of the most popular music festivals in the United States, if not the world. This puts into consideration the position this socalled “indie” festival holds in the minds of all music lovers. On Oct. 9 and 10, 1999, the first annual Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival was held. An estimated 25,000 people were in attendance, still no small feat. Ever since then, the festival has just continued to grow. In 2004, the festival reached a monumental milestone, selling out for the first time in its brief history. 50,000 tickets sold for each Saturday and Sunday of that weekend. The first year Coachella moved into a three-day format was 2007. It was due to its soaring popularity. This year, it has become an absolute giant. An entire second weekend with identical acts was added to the festival. Yes, there’s a tremendous amount of money being made by promoters

and the musical acts themselves, but not a lot of people seem to be complaining. Tickets keep getting sold out and attendees always seem to rave about what an amazing time they had. How could that possibly be a bad thing? This reminds me of the resentment

some fans feel when their favorite act “sells out” by signing to a major record label and releasing an album. Wrong. They didn’t “sell-out,” they just made an extremely successful album. Festivals like Coachella aren’t getting too commercial; they’re just getting better.

At the end of the day, it’s all about the music and the atmosphere. The quality is what keeps people coming back every year. If the quality dies, then so will the popularity. I can accept the commercial success as long as the amazing music endures.

Religious preachings not welcome Non-CSUF groups should take their message elsewhere ALEX GROVES For the Daily Titan

Any Cal State Fullerton student who has ever walked down the Titan Walk knows that getting to class can sometimes be a precarious task. There are sales people peddling everything from energy drinks to dance club tickets. The various vendors and student organizations that crowd this area

are like unnecessary speed bumps, constantly slowing the flow of traffic to and from classes. But nothing is worse than the groups of people from assorted churches and indistinguishable religious groups in the Orange County area. These nonuniversity-affiliated groups are constantly trying to sell people their beliefs in the form of pamphlets, books and speeches. They often resort to ridiculous tactics to draw people in, and some of their methods border on hate speech. What’s worse is that they come

onto campus without warning, and without a way of tracking them back to the group that sent them. Although freedom of speech and freedom of religion are integral components to American society, we should remember that CSUF is a public university that has the responsibility of maintaining separation of church and state. People should have the right to practice whatever religion they please. They also have the right to speak about whatever they please publicly, so long as it doesn’t infringe upon other people’s rights. Unfortunately, many religious groups not associated with CSUF are doing just that. Their messages and pamphlets insult the beliefs and practices of others without a second thought. In recent months, CSUF students have been witness to a right-wing evangelical pastor who has repeatedly called out students in a crowd, telling them that they were going to hell. A large number of religious groups not linked to CSUF students in any way have preached messages that their religion is the only way to salvation. Arguably, such a message poses no harm and creates no disunity among students. But when a person really thinks about it, when you say your religion is the best, you are inherently saying that every other religion is inferior. So in essence, these individuals are preaching the condemnation of other religions on campus. The obvious answer to this problem is that CSUF should encourage these groups to moderate their speech while on campus, right? Unfortunately it’s not that simple if the university can’t get in contact

with these people. Most aren’t students or any clear part of a religious organization, so the task becomes nearly impossible. But it’s not just separation of church and state that is threatened by the continual appearance of these groups on campus. CSUF has made a commitment to having a nondiscriminatory policy which prohibits any action in which a particular group is being targeted. The policy aims “to create and maintain an environment that values diversity, respects human dignity, is hospitable, equitable, tolerant and in which all persons are free from all forms of invidious discrimination or discriminatory harassment.” There have been many instances in which these groups have talked badly about homosexuals and posted signs to the same effect, which is definitely discriminatory. And once again, the argument that your religion is the best slaps people of every other faith in the face. So from this standpoint, these people are still wrong. There’s nothing wrong with being part of a religious group or loving one’s faith, whatever that might be. At least when a student group crosses some sort of ethical boundary, someone on campus can get in contact with them to let them know about it. The problem with the groups that are not student groups is that there is no real way to track them or moderate their actions on campus. Bearing these realities in mind, perhaps it is time for CSUF’s governing officials to reconsider whether they should continue to allow various religious groups that are not run by students to continue to spread their messages.

Young band with a rep Grouplove performed with Young the Giant at the Observatory in OC ANDIE AYALA Daily Titan

The band Grouplove is relatively new. Formed in 2010, it has already managed to gain national attention for its recent album, Never Trust a Happy Song, in a short amount of time. Songs in the album such as “Tongue Tied” and “Colours” have helped put this indie band on the map. Grouplove performed last week at the Observatory in Orange County. “Colours” peaked at No. 12 on USA TODAY’s alternative chart. Fans in Santa Ana last Tuesday eagerly awaited Grouplove at the Santa Ana Observatory for a local performance of this Los Angeles band. Hannah Hooper, Christian Zucconi, Sean Gadd, Andrew Wessen and Ryan Rabin have created a musical drug. Their music is highly addictive. For those who’ve never listened

to a Grouplove song, the best way to describe the sound is if the bands the Pixies, Arcade Fire and MGMT had a beautiful, beautiful baby. The music is energetic and fun. And like true Californians, the band has many songs with lyrics focusing on freedom and the beach, yet there are still a few songs that put you into a romantic trance. The band’s song “Naked Kids” is also the perfect soundtrack to summer. The show began with the velvety music of “Company of Thieves,” giving a rocking performance and a surprise from the crowd — a young man went on stage and asked a girl to prom. Just seconds before Grouplove came in, the crowd was silent, followed by an immediate uproar as they began playing. Grouplove graced its fans with pretty much every song from their new album, to which the fans enthusiastically sang along to. Songs such as “Itching on a Photograph” and “Chloe” were particularly popular. Toward the end of their performance, the band was joined by local band Young the Giant,

One Young the Giant member even crowd-surfed as Grouplove closed its performance, to which the crowd responded very happily to. The Observatory has a very classic feel to it, hidden within a business center. Although it’s difficult to find, the venue itself is very suitable for concerts. A little bit smaller than The Glass House, in Pomona, but with better viewing from every spot, the Observatory was a great way for all Grouplove fans to catch a peek of this band no matter how far away they stood. Grouplove will be very busy for the next few weeks and into the summer. Their tour will take them to 30 more cities, including Tokyo by mid August.

Filipinos in entertainment come to CSUF A panel discussed how to make it in the unforgiving industry JARYD LUCERO Daily Titan

The stuggles for Filipinos in entertainment

A dialogue between Filipino professionals in entertainment and media strive for cultural awareness.

Scan to view

According to a Screen Actors Guild Casting Data Report from 2010, Asian Pacific Islanders made up only 3.8 percent of all television and film roles in 2008. For Melissa Arce, a Cal State Fullerton grad student, more representation of Filipinos in the mainstream media and entertainment is long overdue. Arce coordinated a panel discussion event Wednesday with eight Filipino professionals in the entertainment and media industries as part of her final project for her M.A. in communications. The event, titled “Filipinos in Entertainment and Media: Creating Visibility, Establishing Individuality,” was co-hosted by FilAm Creative, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the advancement of Filipino Americans in entertainment and media, and CSUF’s Pilipino American Student Association (PASA). Students who are looking to know more about Filipinos in the entertainment and media industries made their way to the Titan Student Union and were able to gain knowledge of the industries from the people who have been there. The event was meant to “build awareness about the importance of creating more Filipino visibility, as well as establishing individuality as Filipino

Americans, apart from the broad ‘Asian Pacific Islander American’ (APIA) category,” said Arce. The panelists discussed the struggles of being Filipino in their line of work, along with the highs and lows of their careers and what it means to be a Filipino American. CSUF alumna Kat Iniba, who hosts her own show, Halo Halo with Kat Iniba, on LA18, sat on the panel. “Don’t give up … Create the opportunities and show everyone what you can do,” said Iniba. “It’s nice to see all of us get together and support each other and the community.” Fellow panelist and YouTube star AJ Rafael is also looking to raise awareness. “The message we’re trying to send is that Filipinos and

Filipino Americans are still trying to find visibility ... And for more people to know more about our culture,” said Rafael. It seemed that the biggest message the students left with was being proud to be Filipino and finding their self identity. “As a Filipino myself, who has been questioning my identity, I think it was a good event to get insight into being Filipino American,” said Timothy Trinidad, a business major. Other panelists included Kaba Modern dance group founder Arnel Calvario, media strategist Winston Emano, KIIS-FM’s Manny “Manny on the Streets” Guevara, CSUF professor Dom Magwili, Krizia Medenilla, who co-founded Redefined, a magazine aimed at Filipinos, and actor and

director Rembrandt Sabelis. The event was moderated by Edward Mallillin, who had a preset list of topics for the panelists to talk about. “We want everyone who attends this event to walk away with a better idea of how to go about attaining whatever goals they have after graduation,” said Mallillin. There was time saved at the end for students to ask questions directly to the panelists. Afterwards, attendees were invited to Cantina Lounge to network with each other, as well as with the panelists. It was made clear that the entertainment and media industries are no easy thing to get by in. “If you look for fairness in the industry, you will not find it,” said Magwili.

CSUF has acting and singing chops Little Women

ELLIOTT RODRIGUEZ For the Daily Titan

Cal State Fullerton’s musical production of Little Women: The Broadway Musical follows the lives of four young women growing up in Concord, Mass. during the Civil War. The first couple of minutes do an excellent job of grabbing the audience by the reins and getting them accustomed to the atmosphere and mood of the 1860s — a time when women were advised not to take their job ambitions so seriously and to “go home and have babies.” But there is no stopping Jo March, the main character and a tomboy at heart, who exclaims, “I’ve got a fire in me.” Jo is an aspiring and ambitious young writer who doesn’t want to be judged by the corset she wears, but instead on her passion and inventiveness for writing stories. Rebecca Tucker, who performs the lead role, does an exquisite job at revealing how high-spirited and hyperkinetic the spunky Jo can be. Tucker is top notch, whether she’s giving the audience chills by hitting those oh-so-high notes on the song “Astonishing,” or shouting out “Christopher Columbus” whenever she is beyond bewilderment. Both acts start with a bang, as Jo brings her Gothic and adventurous tales to life. It is when the audience respects Jo the most, because she really does have a gift at dazzling her audience with her grandiose tales of runaway princesses and dark forests full of mythical creatures. Cast members materialize into Renaissance

costumes, hideous trolls and swashbuckling attire (costume designs were put together splendidly by CSUF’s Bruce Goodrich) to portray the characters that Jo has created. In these vivid scenes, you get an understanding as to why Jo would rather create stories involving “blood and guts,” than the excessive tenderness that surrounds her life. The other March sisters are not as memorable, as their characters have all been written with one specific personality: Beth (Micaela Martinez), the reserved one who acts a lot like a younger version of her mother; Meg (Gina Velez), the domestic one nad Amy (Amanda Sylvia), the vain and youngest sister. The same could be said of the intelligent Marmee (Jessica Wilson); Aunt March (Caitlin Humphreys), the uptight one with the stiff upper lip; Meg’s lightheaded tutor, Mr. Brooke (Nick Waaland); riled up old Mr. Lawrence (Forrest Robinson) and his all-over-the-place nephew Laurie (Jordan Sidfield). Even when scarlet fever brings a death to the family, a common tragedy for many people in the 19th century, it’s hard to feel any pity, let alone muster up a tear, because you never feel emotionally invested in these characters. However, the actors and actresses really bare their singing and acting chops, which is the most appealing aspect of the show. There’s a great duet called “Off to Massachusetts” between Beth and Mr. Lawrence that had me smiling. The vocals really shine, and even stern Mr. Lawrence, the man with a “hard face,” is laughing and having a jolly time. The story isn’t powerful enough, but if you want to listen to a professionally timed and very effective orchestra, see entertaining dance choreography, dazzling costumes and watch actors and actresses who perform with skill and vigor, then Little Women: The Broadway Musical is worth checking out. dailytitan.com/detour

Softball team falls for second straight series Titans have now lost five of their last six conference games to put them in fifth place in the Big West GREG WOODSON Daily Titan

The Cal State Fullerton softball team was looking to rebound against the UC Riverside Highlanders this weekend after dropping three games at Pacific University in the series with the Tigers last week. But the struggles continued for the Titans as they lost two of three games to the Highlanders on Saturday and Sunday to drop their second consecutive conference series of the season. CSUF has now lost five of its last six league games and moved to 17-23 overall and 5-7 in conference play. Game one of the doubleheader Saturday saw the Titans drop a close one to the Highlanders 6-5. Desiree Ybarra got the loss in the circle for the Titans in three innings pitched, allowing eight hits and three earned runs, while Highlanders pitcher Jordyn McDonald got the victory in 3.2 innings of work. The victory was only the second in conference play for the Highlanders. UCR jumped out to an early 3-0 lead in the top of the first on Jessica Vasser’s two-RBI double and Yesenia Duenas’ RBI single, in an inning where the Highlanders put together three hits and capitalized on one CSUF error. CSUF would put up two of its own in the bottom half of the first to cut the deficit to one, 3-2. After Ashley Carter led off the inning for the Titans with a single, Adri Martinez walked, bringing up Nicole Johnson who struck out swinging on a one-two pitch. Anissa Young then doubled down the left-field line bringing Carter and Martinez across home plate. UCR would tack on two more runs in the second before holding the Titans scoreless in the home half of the inning, and would go on to score one more run in the top of the third on an RBI single off the bat of Kayla White to take a 6-2 lead. The Titans then scored one run in the bottom of the third when Martinez crossed home plate on an Eliza Crawford groundout to second base. The run cut the Highlanders lead to 6-3. Titans pitcher Katey Laben entered in relief of Ybarra in the top of the fourth and pitched solid, holding UC Riverside scoreless over the last four innings of play.

But the Titans could only manage to get two runs across in the home half of the fourth. Jena Rubio reached base on a single in the inning and later scored on a wild pitch. Kirsten Lambertson who reached on a fielder’s choice, scored on an illegal pitch. CSUF was shut out over the final three innings of the game. In game two, the Titans were edged, 7-5, in another close one. Laben took the loss in 5.1 innings worked, and Taylor Alvarez got the victory for UCR in a complete game effort. Vasser’s two-run home run gave UCR a 2-0 lead in the top of the first before the Titans would answer with a big inning of its own in the home half, courtesy of an illegal pitch and a three-run home run from Gabby Aragon for a 4-2 lead. The two teams would trade runs in the fourth on an RBI single off the bat of UCR’s Jojo Mendoza and an RBI double by CSUF’s Lambertson to make it a 5-3 game. The UCR bats would drive home four more runs — three in the sixth and one in the seventh — to take the lead where they would stay for good. Morgan LeMond, Aragon and Young each had two hits apiece for the Titans in the game. CSUF defeated UCR on Sunday in game three, 5-4, in dramatic fashion. With the game knotted at 4-4 in the bottom of the seventh inning, Leesa Harris doubled out of the leadoff spot, and then moved to third base after Carter reached base on an error. Martinez then hit a ground ball off the pitcher’s glove that bounced right two UCR second basemen Alaina Thomas who fired a strike to home plate, but the speedy Harris beat out the throw for the game winning run. The run scored was Harris’ second of the day. Ybarra earned the victory in the complete game effort allowing four runs and eight hits while McDonald took the loss in six innings pitched in the circle. CSUF put together nine hits to UCR’s eight. Johnson hit her seventh home run of the year while leading the Titans going 3-for-3 from the plate with two RBIs and one run scored in the game. Jena Rubio had two hits, including a solo home run in the bottom of the second, which tied the game at 2-2. The victory snapped a five-game losing streak and was a much needed momentum spark for the Titans as they look to get back on track going into their next game against the Aztecs at San Diego State University on Wednesday at 6 p.m.

ROBERT HUSKEY / Daily Titan Cal State Fullerton catcher Jared Deacon fields an infield hit in the Titans’ game one, 6-1 win over Cal Poly SLO Friday night.

Titans remain in first place CSUF took game one behind pitcher Dylan Floro’s strong outing MARK PAYNE Daily Titan

The Cal State Fullerton baseball team (25-12, 8-2) hosted Cal Poly SLO (21-15, 5-5) in the first game of a three-game series Friday night at Goodwin Field, and the Titans came away with a solid 6-1 win over the Mustangs for their fourth win in a row. The win moved CSUF into sole possession of first place in the Big West Conference. The No. 12 ranked Titans rode the strong arm of starter Dylan Floro to victory as he managed to bear down for eight innings during crucial situations and hold the Mustangs to one run while scattering 10 hits, striking out eight, and not allowing a walk. It was Floro’s fifth win in his last six starts and improved his overall record to 6-3. He was in trouble for most of the night but managed to strand nine of the 11 runners who reached base and picked off another runner at first. Floro said he felt good going into the game, and that he was throwing well in the bullpen. He said all of his pitches were working for him and that he just carried them into the game. “I used all (pitches) pretty good.

I didn’t use the changeup as much because they were all righties, but I used them all and mixed them all, and they were working pretty good,” Floro said. Head coach Rick Vanderhook said Floro pitched a nice game. “He got ahead. He pitched good,” Vanderhook said. “He shut down innings (the other team) when we scored, which is one of the things that we do, and he went out and got the leadoff hitter out in every one of those innings and made it easier on them (the Titans).” Richy Pedroza, Michael Lorenzen and Anthony Hutting all had two hits to lead the Titan attack, while Lorenzen, Hutting and freshman Clay Williamson each added an RBI. CSUF got on the board in the second inning when Hutting led off with a single and stole second, and then advanced to third on a wild pitch by Mustang starter Joey Wagman (5-3). With two outs, Williamson cracked a long fly to left field deep enough to score Hutting with the Titans’ first run. “I’ve been seeing the ball pretty well lately, and I just wanted to keep it going,” Hutting said. “I’ve been getting more comfortable at the plate as the season has gone on … I’ve been putting good swings on the ball lately, and I’m just looking to give us quality at bats,” The Titans took advantage

of error in the third inning by Mustang shortstop Mike Miller that allowed Jared Deacon to reach first base to leadoff the inning. Pedroza’s single got Deacon to second, and he moved to third on a groundout. Lorenzen then hit a smash in the hole for a single to drive home Deacon for the Titan’s second run to make the score 2-0. The Titan’s big inning came in the sixth when they would score four more times to move out to a comfortable 6-0 lead. Lorenzen and Carlos Lopez both opened up the inning with singles. Hutting brought home Lopez with a double to the right field wall, and Lorenzen came home when the Mustang’s right fielder Nick Torres mishandled the ball. Cal Poly then brought in Michael Holbrook to replace Wagman, and he promptly wild pitched Hutting home with the third run of the inning. CSUF got one more run when Williamson singled and Derek Legg doubled him over to third. Holbrook then uncorked another wild pitch to score Williamson, making it 6-0 Titans. The Mustang’s managed to get one on the board in the eighth when David Armendariz knocked in the only run Cal Poly could muster. Dimitri DeLaFuente came in to pitch a perfect ninth and seal the victory for the Titans.

BASEBALLBRIEFS Game Two Titans Crumble in Fifth inning

Game Three Lopez Hits Walk-Off Double

Cal Poly SLO flexed its muscles Saturday night at Goodwin field, blasting three home runs to beat No. 12 ranked Cal State Fullerton, 8-6, in the second game of a three-game series. The Mustangs’ Alex Michaels’ eighth inning two-run pinch-hit home run down the right-field line with two outs broke a 6-6 tie and gave Cal Poly SLO the runs they would need for the win. It looked like CSUF starting pitcher Kenny Mathews was in control as he shut out the Mustangs (22-15, 6-5) through the four innings, but he would give up six earned runs in the fifth on a pair of three-run homers. The Titans (25-13, 8-3) got off to the lead in the top of the fourth with a couple of unearned runs. Michael Lorenzen reached on an error and Matt Chapman singled. Ivory Thomas singled to center to score Lorenzen, and Chapman came home on Anthony Hutting’s sacrifice fly to right. The Titan’s managed to tie the game in the bottom of the fifth when Lorenzen doubled after a pair of singles by Anthony Trajano and Carlos Lopez. Chapman was hit by a pitch and Ivory Thomas brought them both home with a triple to left center.

The Cal State Fullerton baseball team got an important conference victory over Cal Poly SLO in the rubber match of a three-game series at Goodwin field Sunday afternoon when Carlos Lopez doubled home Ivory Thomas with the winning run in the 10th inning, giving the Titans a come-from-behind 5-4 win. The Titans (26-13, 9-3) got their fifth win in six games to remain in a first-place tie in the Big West Conference with Long Beach State. CSUF starting pitcher Grahamm Wiest was in command for most of the game. He gave up just two runs in eight innings of work and was in line for his fourth win of the season. But the usually reliable Michael Lorenzen (2-0), who was 12-for-12 in save opportunities, gave up two runs in the ninth. The Titans got a run back in the ninth to tie the game up at 4-4 and set-up the 10th inning for the heroics from Lopez. Lopez had big contributions for the Titans with three hits, including two doubles and a pair of RBIs. The Titans won their ninth consecutive weekend series dating back to opening weekend at Florida.
