Artistic endeavors realized

Nutwood Cafe makes the grade The Nutwood Cafe, located in the College Park building, was issued an “A” grade by health inspectors Tuesday. The cafe received a “D” grade following a health inspection on Sept. 26 because of unsanitary conditions, including employee behavior and a defective openfaced food cooler, according to inspectors. The cooler has since been replaced with a new closed-faced design and employees were instructed on proper sanitary procedures and policies.

Woman cited after profane overflow SCRANTON, Pa. (AP) – Talk about a potty mouth. Dawn Herb allegedly shouted profanities at her overflowing toilet within earshot of a neighbor was cited for disorderly conduct, authorities said. “It doesn’t make any sense. I was in my house. It’s not like I was outside or drunk,” Herb said. Her next-door neighbor, a city police officer who was off-duty at the time, asked her to keep it down, police said. When she continued, the officer called police. Herb could face up to 90 days in jail and a fine of up to $300. Mary Catherine Roper, an attorney with the American Civil Liberties Union in Philadelphia, took issue with the citation. “You can’t prosecute somebody for swearing at a cop or a toilet,” she said.

There are going to be days when nothing’s going for you, but you have to find a way to battle it out and get the win.

Campus eateries clean up act, pass recent health inspections By CELIA CASTANON

Daily Titan Staff Writer

In a month’s period, the Nutwood Café managed to go from a “C” grade, to a “D” grade, to an “A” grade after Environmental Health and Instructional Safety inspected the restaurant. Juice It Up, by the Humanities Building, received a “C” on its last inspection while Round Table Pizza, Garden Café, Langsdorf Hall Express and MJ’s all received “B” grades. Some people might think twice about eating at these restaurants, but according to Environmental Health and Instructional Safety, these types of grades are not uncommon. On Sept. 12, the Nutwood Café was inspected and told the temperatures in the open cooler were not adequate and because of this, the café received a “C” grade. The open cooler, which contained pre-packaged sandwiches, salads and sushi, did not have the capacity to cool food but was able to maintain food at cold-holding temperatures. It is important to maintain food temperature at 41 degrees or below standard for these types of foods. Tony Lynch, the director of dining services, said a mechanic came out to take a look at the cooler and said the “critical point [of grading] was the cooler and poor circulation.” When inspectors went back on Sept. 26, the problem was still unsolved and the food in the cooler was discarded. In addition, the cashier was placing money on the cutting board next to the register, increasing the risk of cross-contamination. The employees were also changing gloves

without washing hands. These all factored into the grade changing to a “D.” Yesterday, the cafe was inspected for a third time this semester and received an “A” grade. According to the inspection information report on the Environmental Health and Instructional Safety Web site, the water temperature is at 120 degrees and the manager has implemented a training program for employees. It has also posted food safety procedures throughout the facility. “The cooler was replaced” and the Nutwood Café “is normally an Arated eatery,” Allan Anaya, manager of the café, said. “If it’s a major violation, I’ll try to go back in two days, if at all possible, unannounced,” Scott Bourdon, associate director of Safety Programs & Services at CSUF, said. “If the food [in cold-holding] is above 50 degrees, it has to be thrown out. There is no way to track whether it’s been out for more than four hours since the cooler is constantly open and shut.” Students would never know this unless they went to the Environmental Health and Instructional Safety Web site because in Orange County, it is not required for a restaurant to post their letter grade. If an immediate danger to public health and safety is found and not immediately corrected or correctable, Environmental Health and Instructional Safety may temporarily suspend the facility’s operating permit and order the facility to close immediately. Last semester, the Langsdorf Hall See INSPECTIONS, Page 2

For some people, the thought of glass might bring to mind drug paraphernalia. To the students and admirers of hot glass art, the idea of a glass blower juggling molten liquid on a stick comes to mind. “I’d like to dispel the myth that the only thing you can make [with glass] is bongs,” Andrew Biba, the president of the Hot Glass Club, said. He said that’s one of the most common questions the group receives. Without exposure to hot glass, people do not see the different aspects of the glass. “Exposure to the hot glass might make people want to do it themselves and not rely on just buying it,” Biba said. Kevin Bellwood, the club’s treasurer, said people are not even aware there is a glass class on campus.

“[Other students] see it and ask, ‘Oh, did you make this?’ Then I tell them I made it at school,” Bellwood said. Last year, students not enrolled in the class were invited to come to the art studio to make a piece of glass. The hands-on experiences during the event allowed people to watch and learn. “If students came to the events that the glass club sponsors, they would be exposed to an enormous amount of knowledge,” John Leighton, head of the glass program and club adviser, said. Besides glass appreciation, there are several hidden benefits to joining the club. It teaches the students to be self sufficient, Leighton said. The students run the meetings, decide how to raise money and do grant writing. “It prepares them for life as an artist. [Artists] spend their whole life trying to find sources for funding,” Leighton said. See HOT GLASS, Page 3

INTERNATIONAL NEWS Russian president issues veiled threat to U.S. over Iran

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) – Russian leader Vladimir Putin met his Iranian counterpart Tuesday and implicitly warned the U.S. not to use a former Soviet republic to stage an attack on Iran. He also said countries bordering the Caspian Sea must jointly back any oil pipeline projects in the region. At a summit of the five nations that border the inland Caspian Sea, Putin said none of the nations’ territory should be used by any outside countries for use of military force against any nation in the region. It was a clear reference to long-standing rumors that the U.S. was planning to use Azerbaijan, a former Soviet republic, as a staging ground for any possible military action against Iran. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad also underlined the need for solidarity. A State Department spokesman, Tom Casey, said the United States is not planning military action against Iran.Putin refused to set a date for the start-up of Iran’s first nuclear power plant, to be built by Russia. At the same time, he said, “We are not going to renounce our obligations.”

NATIONAL NEWS Facebook cracks down on sexual predators on the Web NEW YORK (AP) – New York State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo announced an agreement with the social networking Web site Facebook on Tuesday to protect underage members from sexual predators and inappropriate content. Under the agreement, Facebook will speed up its process for addressing complaints of inappropriate content or unwelcome contact, and an independent monitor approved by Cuomo’s office will oversee Facebook’s compliance with the safeguards for two years. Under the agreement, the Palo Alto, Calif.-based company, which has about 47 million users, will have to post the safety procedures on its site. Cuomo said the settlement recognizes that parents share in the responsibility to shield their children from inappropriate Web content. His office began investigating the Web site after receiving complaints. The disclosure section on Facebook’s site will say, “Facebook cannot guarantee that its site is entirely free of illegal, offensive, pornographic or otherwise inappropriate material, or that its members will not encounter or inappropriate or illegal conduct from other members,” he said.

STATE NEWS Apple changes spots with “Leopard” operating system SAN JOSE (AP) – Apple Inc.’s next-generation operating system, Mac OS X “Leopard,” will be available Oct. 26 for $129, and Apple’s online store is taking pre-orders, the company said Tuesday. Leopard was originally due in June, but Apple said in April that it needed to divert resources so it could launch the much-anticipated iPhone on time. Leopard, which the company says will offer more than 300 new features, is the sixth major upgrade Apple has made to Mac OS X since the desktop operating system debuted in 2001. One of the new features is “Boot Camp,” which lets users install Microsoft Corp.’s Windows on Intel-based Macs, though both operating systems can’t run at the same time. The feature, in a test version released last year, already has helped attract new customers to the Macintosh platform. Mac revenues have hit record highs for the past year, and Apple’s share of the PC market has grown. Analysts expect Apple’s strategy of introducing products that work with Microsoft’s Windows software to further boost computer sales. Market researcher Gartner Inc. said Apple surpassed Gateway in the second quarter to become the third-largest computer vendor in the U.S.

Mental health intrudes on Americans’ lives Psychological disorders make up over 1 billion lost days of activities By SARAH MOSQUEDA

Daily Titan Staff Writer

It’s a common scenario: tardy Cal State Fullerton student walks into classroom five minutes late. Some students may decide to forgo the lecture altogether. Some people need courage for walking into a classroom. A full class becomes 100 pairs of eyes watching the student slide embarrassingly into the only seat left – in the dreaded front row. Social anxiety causing a tardy student to skip class may be even more common than most students realize. In a recent study, available in the archives of General Psychiatry, onethird of all sick days taken last year were due to mental health issues, with disorders like anxiety and depression topping the list. Adult Americans suffering from psychological disorders miss 1.3 billion days of work, school or other daily activities annually. “Depression and anxiety are some of the most highly-diagnosed disorders,” said Matt Englar-Carlson, a CSUF psychology professor of counseling. Those disorders can range from clinical depression to manic depression. General or social anxiety can also manifest itself as a phobia. While there are different types of depression and anxiety, none should be taken lightly. “Anxiety is pretty serious,” EnglarCarlson said. “It can change your life.” Through his experience working as a counselor, Englar-Carlson has come across many phobias. One phobia particularly common among students is fear of large groups and, more specifically, public speaking. Academically-inclined students who find themselves in a class that re-

quires a public presentation may skip proper treatment, ranging from therapy to medication, people can class the day of the presentation. “The fear is much more power- free themselves of phobias and anxiful than facing it or overcoming it,” ety.

off of work to get to the conference rather than taking off two days [from work].” There are a number of resources available to students on campus, however. CSUF students who suffer from anxiety or depression can visit the Counseling and Psychological Services Center, located in the East Student Health and Counseling Center Building, next to the Health Center. CAPS offers free confidential counseling to CSUF students. Assessment and referral is available to CSUF students with personal or psychological problems that interfere with their educational progress. Crisis intervention is also a service offered. Licensed marriage and family therapist are on hand for students suffering from depression, anxiety, stress symptoms, as well as relationship, family or situational problems. Counselors are available by appointment or during walk-in hours. CAPS also offers a wide variety of workshops, crisis interventions, and consultation and outreach programs.

CSUF educators defend attacks on curricula Lt. Gov. John Garamendi blasts the efforts of Cal State system universities By SYlvia masuda

Daily Titan Staff Writer

In attempts to provide an answer to the current shortage of trained Californians going into the workforce, Lt. Gov. John Garamendi has suggested reforming the state’s education system in his statewide “Listening Tour.” Although Garamendi said the CSUs are doing an inadequate job of preparing students to contribute to local businesses, Cal State Fullerton faculty said they disagree, believing that their curricula is keeping up with providing trained students. “Garamendi is saying there should be collaboration between industry and the university,” said Raman Unnikrishnan, dean of the College of Engineering and Computer Science. “That is exactly what is happening at CSUF. We are ahead of the curve in making that connection. We have very collaborative connections with-


Express received an “A” grade and four days later received a “D” grade in a follow-up inspection. The back cooler was not maintaining the staterequired temperature of 41 degrees, posing health risks for spoiled food. A refrigeration mechanic came and a temperature monitor was installed to graph the temperature range within the cooler overnight. A third inspection planned for the next day showed the back cooler improved significantly and received a “B” grade. “The process for inspection is given by the state as a general guideline and to the discretion of the county,” Bourdan said. “If it’s a major violation, it’s at the state law, but points deducted is at the discretion of the inspector.”

in the industry.” Nursing, engineering and computer science, in particular, suffer from a deficiency of trained workers in California. “Part of the problem is that we have traditionally relied on immigration from other states and countries to provide most of our nurses,” said Maryanne Garon, RN associate professor and graduate program adviser. “As a result, we have nowhere near the capacity to educate the number of nurses needed.” Unnikrishnan said the insufficient number of engineers and computer scientists graduating from the CSUs is not enough to “meet the demands of the industry.” “California is a state where a lot of innovation takes place,” Unnikrishnan said. “The engine that makes these things work is the technical workforce. We bring and import other engineers to do the work. One can say they are inevitable outcomes of a society, but the fact remains that we don’t have engineers coming out of any programs.” However, Unnikrishnan lines up several jobs for engineering and computer science students post-

graduation. Other colleges at CSUF require serving an internship to graduate with a degree in that major to provide a door to gaining full employment. A three-unit internship is mandatory for applied arts majors. Dana Lamb, coordinator of the entertainment art and animation program said in fall and spring semesters, an average of 60 to 90 students work as interns. “The big advantage there for the students is that they don’t have to be a 10-year veteran or a real pro,” Lamb said in a phone interview. “The company knows they’re coming from a classroom, so their expectations are more realistic. It’s a lowpressure situation.” Pamela Caldwell, communications department internship coordinator, said in the 2006-2007 year, more than 600 communications students were enrolled in internships. “We work hard to get our students into the field,” Caldwell said. “Students get assessed regularly by the supervisors who oversee them on their internships. Those evaluations come in very high, usually from above average to superior.”

As for the RN and nursing master’s programs, students are required to accumulate several hours of experience outside of the classroom. “Politicians can say anything they want, but the data shows a different story,” CSUF Media Relations Director Clara Potes-Fellow said. “The numbers speak for themselves.” The Chancellor’s Office also plays a role in making connections and improving course curricula. Potes-Fellow said the chancellor attends conferences of various industries to find ways to prepare students better for joining the workforce. Jim Case, director of the Career Planning and Placement Center, said the problem lies in the state’s budget. The state has been excluding education in its distribution of funds. “Rather than make that investment in higher education over the last ‘X’ number of years because of all the budget issues, the state has invested fewer dollars than is necessary in order for institutions like the [CSUs] to develop cutting-edge programs. Every dollar that is spent on incarceration doesn’t generate a whole lot of potential value for the future,” Case said.

Titan Student Union quenches some gamers’ thirst with new gaming area New center on campus offers multiple consoles and game selections By SKYLER SMITH

For the Daily Titan

The Cal State Fullerton Titan Student Union recently acquired a new and technologically up-to-date addition: the Titan Gaming Center. In the gaming room, students can use one of five Xbox 360 consoles and enjoy any of the games available in the new center’s library. “The TSU is a time out,” TSU Director Kurt Borsting said. “It is a place where you can grab lunch, play pool [and] spend time with friends. It is an outlet in between their [students’] studying.” Students are already using the gaming center at CSUF as a break between their studying and not as an

alternative to their work. “I don’t really think it will be a distraction. It depends on how you view it,” said Roman Sobolkin, an international business major. “It’s relaxing to take a break from school and play video games for a while. It’s a great place to meet new people or hang out with friends.” The gaming center proved to be quite a hurdle for the TSU board to establish. “The biggest step was the licensing process to use the machines in a public setting,” Borsting said. Because the Xbox console is not coin-operated, the revenue earned from the center will be lacking. “We wanted the board to be open to trading revenue for fun,” Borsting said. “We had to ask ourselves, ‘Is that important enough to give up revenue?’ And the answer was yes.” Most students in the gaming center were satisfied with the current selection of games, but there was

HOT GLASS: aN Expressive form of art (from Page 1)

Although the club benefits the glass students more, the club helps bring exposure of glass to the student body. “By far, the activities of the glass club serve the students in glass class, but our goal for the club is to raise awareness and bring new students into the program,” Leighton said. During Arts Week, which is held every April, the club sells items made by glass art students. The club has sponsored Arts Week every year where the Arts InterClub Council funds glass projects the club does. The club raises awareness and appreciation for hot glass by sponsoring guest lecturers and discussions during meetings. On Nov. 5, Southern California artist Steve Klein, who uses different glass-blowing techniques to make his pieces, will be on campus from 10 a.m to 7 p.m.

Halo 3,” Borsting said. “There are concerns about content because these consoles are generally used in home settings, so we have to find appropriate games for a public setting.”

With many of the popular Xbox games carrying an “M” rating, a majority of future titles will be restricted to sports games and racing games. This may upset students who want to play the popular Maturerated games. There are few set parameters on the gaming center due to it still being an evaluative process. “You can play for as long as you want unless there is a line, then we limit it to an hour,” said Mike Lanceta, an economics major who works as a cashier in the TSU Underground. Each Xbox console is displayed on an LCD television facing two couch seats. So far, there are only five games available to the students, but new games will be added, Lanceta said. Eventually, the TSU may network the consoles together, which would allow for tournaments and special events.

“It would be great to get our NCAA baseball players to go headto-head with the students ‘on the field’ in the NCAA video game,” Borsting said. The gaming center is currently receiving 60 hours play time between the five Xbox 360s. Those at the TSU hope that with the inclusion of special events, tournaments, networking and new games, the gaming center will be a stable and active part of the TSU. The Titan gaming area is located in the Underground and is free for students. A fee is charged for faculty or staff members and members of the community. Other recreational activities available for students at the TSU include bowling, billiards and Texas Hold’ Em tournaments. For more information, visit the TSU Web site is at:

Don’t break the bank, save up and consider lesser-known acts

Providing insight, analysis and perspective since 1960

More Radiohead, less DRM for music industry Music consumers could be in for a very bright future. We can thank Radiohead for giving music to fans virtually free of charge two weeks ago and two of the four music labels, Universal and EMI, for signaling the end of Digital Rights Management by offering music through Amazon in the regular old MP3 format. The age of greed from record labels and fear-mongering by the RIAA could be at an end. When Apple pioneered the 99 cent price tag for any single music track in the iTunes Music Store, the idea must have seemed like a pipe dream to record labels. The company would help recapture the money lost when music fans found ways (Kazaa, Bit Torrent, Limewire, etc.) to take tracks without stopping by the record store. But Apple is now the largest digital music retailer in the world and its price is standard for all companies that actually sell music to their customers rather than rent it out to them as a few failing subscription-based systems have done. The labels created a monster and now they are panicking as they try whatever they can to introduce competition in the market. To do this, the record label gang known as “The Big Four” is going to have to abandon its much-coveted DRM, the technology which keeps music attached to a singular platform like Apple’s iPod + iTunes. What’s more, Apple officially doesn’t care about DRM. CEO Steve Jobs thinks the iPod will

sell briskly no matter what format the music is in, so its now offering super-high quality DRM-free “iTunes Plus” songs for 99 cents as well. Even if the labels insist on an arcane method of thief-proofing music, Radiohead, now without a label, has offered musicians and fans a very appealing alternative with what should be considered the most bold and brilliant marketing and distribution plan yet. Available for a price set by the downloader, Radiohead’s new album “In Rainbows” had been downloaded through the band’s Web site over a million times after only one week. Fan stinginess is still a haunting problem for the industry – The average amount people are paying for the album is being estimated at around $4. Since all this money is going directly to the artist, this is a respectable figure. To be truly revolutionary, however, it should be higher. This unprecedented style of release (from one of the world’s most respected acts) has the chance to start a fire, one that will either get record executives to see that albums are overpriced or burn down the music industry for what it was once. It’s up to fans to decide how high the flames will go. Imagine – super-high quality DRM-free songs you can purchase legally and use however you want on whatever device you want for less than $1 each. It could be a reality very soon. If we keep the pressure on, we could be the reason for something big.

Prove your loyalty: Go to concerts By Alyssa Bonavita

Daily Titan Staff Writer

Diehard music fans deserve credit. They pave the way for those yearning to break free from the confines of repetitive radio station music. People who solely rely on the radio as a source to get them connected with the world of music are not pursuing much of a hunt. Although it is simple to burn a CD from a friend or buy tracks online, I feel confident in saying that loyal music fans will not abandon their artists and bands of choice when it comes to seeing them live. It doesn’t get much better than belting out tunes right along with the musicians you admire as their passion protrudes through intense vocals and resounding instruments. Undoubtedly, meeting them too would be an even bigger honor, but going to concerts is by no means settling. Concerts are personal and moving experiences, and music enthusiasts recognize this. Those who are picky about their music are most likely to jump at the opportunity to go to shows. Picky music critics love what they love and push aside what they do not. They have taken the time to develop genuine opinions about different types of music, which shows their general interest in the art. When one of their favorite musicians or bands is in town, how could they not be excited? On the other hand, there are those who “like everything.” It might mean

these people would be drawn to many shows, since they “like everything,” but it most likely means they do not hold a strong enough opinion about a particular genre of music to know what type they favor. They probably won’t go out of their way to check tour dates or be the first person to place an eBay bid on tickets to a soldout show. Music is passionate for some and unmoving for others and everyone is entitled to feel the way they do about it. If you love music enough, you will go to any length to try and see the musical geniuses you admire, and if you have indifferent feelings about music, you probably will not make the effort. As far as concert-going in general, people are still excited for the events. If you call yourself a “music nerd,” chances are you will be counting down the days and hours until tickets go on sale. There are even occasional free shows at venues or one-of-a-kind free in-store performances you can catch at record stores like Fingerprints. You can find it all online if you have the interest in scouting out the shows. We are lucky to have a diversity of venues like The Glass House, The Wiltern, The Troubadour and The Echo, to name a few, where a variety of bands and musicians frequent. The bottom line is, if you are into music enough, you will scope out tour dates and ticket sales and make the effort to go to concerts, probably seeing many incredible ones. If you are indifferent about music, then you probably won’t lose sleep over missing a show. It’s a win-win situation. Simply put, concerts are not outdated to those who have their feet planted in the music scene.

Robots are taking over the world New technology allows people to communicate via wireless Internet By Nathan Wheadon

Daily Titan Staff Writer

The rise of the machines is happening; robots are taking over! Well, almost. It may not be time to call John Connor yet, but it may be smart to put him on speed dial. Robots, usually home-cleaning gadgets, are now taking on social tasks. ConnectR, a new machine created by iRobot Corp. is designed to allow parents to be at home, even if they are away. ConnectR can “be controlled from within the home or remotely, using a Web connection to a home wireless network. The user can operate the robot with either a joystick or a computer installed with iRobotsupplied software,” according to an Associated Press article on Yahoo. com. This contraption can allow parents to read a bedtime story to their children from miles away or check to see if the kitchen light got turned off.

I don’t like it, and I’m glad this wasn’t around when I was in high school. The ConnectR might not rival the Jetsons’ Rosie or Vicki from “Small Wonder” yet, but it still can ruin countless teenagers’ weekends. Everyone has been there some way or another, whether it was your parents or your friends or just someone from school; every high schooler looks forward to those great weekends when the folks are out of town. Now, one of the most enjoyable parts of high school is ruined for the future generations by robots. The worst part about the ConnectR is that the color digital video only streams one way, so parents can spy on their kids, but not vice versa. Also, up to 10 parties can have a Personal Identification Number access to the robot. This is great! Now grandma from Nebraska can watch as you open that same Cornhuskers sweater she sends every year since ‘98 on your birthday. Thanks grandma! I love the sweater! Oh well, at least now she might be able to see that the kids medium is getting a bit tight. High schoolers can breathe easy for now because iRobot is offering

limited quantities during the pilot program. This way, “select participants can take the device home, test it out and offer comments,” according to Kids, break out the beer-bong soon because the ConnectR will “become broadly available early next year for less than $500.” Although iRobot is desperately trying to bust tens-of-thousands of parties all over the country, they are also trying to help people too. Along with the ConnectR, they created the Looj, which is designed to clean roof gutters. I like the Looj, even though cleaning roof gutters is not too high on my priority list, it will definitely serve many people well. Cleaning the gutters is dirty, plus you have to climb up and down a ladder several times. Now, the Looj does the dirty work, is controlled with a remote and only needs a little help on the corners because it can’t turn. The new inventions from iRobot may not be unstoppable cyborg assassins sent from the future to kill mankind, but for those people who have siblings at home, tell them to party now. Warn them about the ConnectR because once they are widely released, Judgment Day will come.

Titans drop conference match to UC Riverside Redshirt freshman Pete Kingman suffers injury as men’s soccer remains winless in Big West Conference play

The Cal State Fullerton men’s soccer team lost an offensively-challenged game to Big West Conference rival UC Riverside 1-0 Wednesday night at Titan Stadium. The match started off physically, with UC Riverside’s Highlanders picking up two yellow cards in the first 10 minutes of play. Both teams sloppily began the game, however, with neither side able to develop any type of momentum. The Titans would pick up their play in the latter part of the first half, but they couldn’t translate their advantage in possession to actual goals scored. By half time, the Titans had out-shot the Highlanders four to three, and would out-shoot them 11 to five for the game. Throughout the match, both teams came at each other hard, as shown by Highlanders’ 19 total fouls and the Titans’ 15 total fouls. The Highlanders also managed to earn five yellow cards, while the Titans picked up three yellow cards and one red card. The lone goal of the game was scored in the 60th minute by Highlander Nathan Paterson, who brilliantly one-timed a pass from teammate Andrew Villalobos from over 30 yards out. The shot sailed threw the air, finding a space right below the top crossbar and above Titan goalkeeper Brent Douglas. It would prove to be a deficit too great to overcome. Titan Head Coach Bob Ammann said he was not happy with his team’s performance after the game. He pulled his team in the locker room immediately after the final whistle blew. “I thought it was one of our worst performances of the year,” Ammann

said. “I felt that right from the start that our intensity, desire and fight weren’t good enough, and in this game if you don’t have that, you’re not going to come out on top.” Another blow for the Titans was the loss of freshman Peter Kingman, who fractured his right tibia during the second half of play. Injuries aren’t unfamiliar to the Titans, whose top two keepers had missed significant time due to injuries. Titan trainer Brent Smedley braced for the worst after the game regarding Kingman’s injury, “He has a history of lower leg problems and is coming off a fracture from a year ago,” Smedley said. “So he’s still pretty sensitive to that kind of stuff and we’ll know more in the next couple of days.” Injuries are only part of their problems. For a team ranked third in pre-season polls, the season has been a disappointment thus far. The Highlanders improved to 11-1 in conference play after being ranked last in a pre-season Big West Conference poll. Senior forward Skyler Thuresson wasn’t pleased with his team’s play either, lamenting a game that the Titans felt they could have won. “There are going to be days when nothing’s going for you, but you have to find a way to battle it out and get the win,” Thuresson said. “But for some reason, our effort wasn’t there.”

Tribe leads series 3-1 with one SOCCER: Team more game to play in Cleveland frustrated with The Associated Press

As October’s curtain rose, they were unknown underdogs. Nobody’s calling the Cleveland Indians anything close to that now. “This club believes in itself,” third baseman Casey Blake said. “We know we’re here for a reason, and there’s no reason we can’t win this series — and go to the World Series.” Jake Westbrook, often overlooked in Cleveland’s top-heavy starting rotation, kept Boston grounded for nearly seven innings Monday night, leading the Indians to a 4-2 win over the Red Sox and a 2-1 lead in the AL championship series. With two more games at Jacobs Field, the Indians, who haven’t won it all since 1948, are in control of a best-of-seven series that seemed to belong to Boston after the opener. But as they did against the New York Yankees in the opening round, the Indians are showing they can swing with baseball’s big boys. Westbrook, a laid-back Georgian, doesn’t possess the overpowering stuff of C.C. Sabathia or Fausto Carmona — Cleveland’s two aces who flopped in Games 1 and 2 at Fenway Park — or their stellar reputations. But Westbrook does have a devastating sinkerball, and oh my, how it sunk the Red Sox. “I was able to make good pitches when I needed to,” said Westbrook, who lost at Yankee Stadium last week. “I’m a sinkerball guy. That’s what I live and die by. I threw that all night and was able to mix in my secondary pitches pretty well.”

At the Jake, Jake was all the Indians could needed. Backed by an early homer from old pro Kenny Lofton, the righthander took a shutout into the seventh inning. “Our bullpen has been working hard. Jake controlled the ballgame. He did a good job working ahead and keeping the ball on the ground,” said Indians manager Eric Wedge, who used five relievers in Cleveland’s Game 2, 11-inning marathon win. Game 4 on Tuesday night will feature two soft tossers: Cleveland’s Paul Byrd, with his old-school windup, and Boston’s Tim Wakefield, the 41-year-old knuckleballing master who hasn’t pitched Sept. 29. The Red Sox are counting on past postseason success to pull them through. “We have to come in tomorrow and play hard,” David Ortiz said. “We’ve been in worse situations, but we have to produce. It’s that simple.” Lofton, a 40-year-old who could still pass as a twentysomething, gave the Indians a 2-0 lead in the second with his seventh career postseason homer. As Indians fans danced their way toward the exits following the game, Lofton was asked if he felt 40. “No,” he said. “I feel 25.” He’s playing like a young man, and the Indians, despite a lack of postseason experience, are acting as if they’ve been doing this for years. “These guys are going out and playing team ball and it’s unbelievable,” Lofton said.

losing streak

(from page 8) The Titans came out with the same intensity they showed in the first half, but the Anteaters held their own. Anteater forward Spencer Thompson broke through the Titan defense and challenged Douglas one-on-one. Douglas fouled Thompson and drew a red card from officials as the lastline defender, forcing him to leave the game. The foul left the Titans a man short and gave a penalty kick to the Anteaters against freshman keeper Tyler Andrews. Anteater junior Shane Westbrook powered the ball past Andrews for the first goal of the game. The Titans rallied back on a goal from junior Jacob Shumway to tie the game. They kept control of the ball on the field, but a tightened Irvine defense steered any shots away from the back of the net. The game was pushed into overtime where the Titans had one last shot at the Anteaters. Irvine came out firing in overtime, however, and pushed another ball past Andrews to win the game. The Titans fell to 4-7-1 and Head Coach Bob Ammann said he was unhappy about the season’s latest progressions. “There is no reason for us to have lost this game,” Ammann said. “We had a number of chances, but we didn’t capitalize, which has been the story of this season. This is extremely frustrating.” The Titans have had a string of missed-success with their current losing streak. “We had an unlucky break there at the end,” sophomore Reid Baker said. “We’ve been unfortunate the past few games and, hopefully, we can turn it around.” The team is looking to turn around what could potentially be a disheartening season. Ammann said he is tired of seeing the same mistakes being made on the field. Shumway, the only Titan with a goal in the game, was unhappy with the result of the loss. “We always dominate but never get the result we need,” Shumway said.

Men’s soccer falls to UC Irvine in overtime by Phillip Radke

Daily Titan Staff Writer

The Cal State Fullerton men’s soccer team continued its streak of bad luck as it fell to the UC Irvine Anteaters in a 2-1 overtime loss. The team outplayed the Anteaters on all sides of the ball, but a few missed opportunities and a red card to goalkeeper Brent Douglas in the second half crippled the Titans, costing them the game Saturday. The Titans dominated the Anteaters throughout the first half, making them backpedal and retrace their steps up and down the field.

Angels GM steps down The Associated Press

Bill Stoneman spent so much time building the Angels into a perennial contender that he knew when he didn’t have enough energy to stay on as the team’s general manager. Stoneman stepped down Tuesday, saying he wanted to spend more time with his wife, Diane. He was replaced by player development director Tony Reagins. “She didn’t know when she married me that I would have a mistress,” Stoneman said, alluding to the demands of his baseball career. “Right now, I’m leaving my mistress.” The 63-year-old Stoneman, who will remain with Los Angeles as a senior adviser, became the Angels GM in November 1999. The team improved by 12 wins in his first year. After making the playoffs only three times previously, the Angels advanced to the postseason four times under Stoneman. They won their only World Series championship in 2002. Los Angeles won the AL West this season for the third time in four years but was swept in by Boston in the first round. Choking back tears at times at a news conference, Stoneman said he wanted time for other things. “I’m getting older. You have to face that, and this job requires a ton of energy. I really don’t have the same energy I brought to the job,” he said. “The main thing is, I was worn down and I didn’t think it would be right to continue.” Stoneman will help Reagins make the transition into the job but the switch shouldn’t be too difficult. Reagins joined the Angels as an intern in 1992 and was the organization’s player development director for the past six years. “I’ve known Tony since coming on the job here,” Stoneman said. “This is one of the brightest, most energetic and dedicated guys I know. He’s able to get things done.” Owner Arte Moreno said the transition would be seamless. “Bill will be a direct adviser to me,” Moreno said. “I’ve always felt it’s important to keep our brain trust together.” Reagins said the job carries “extreme responsibility, and I’m ready for the challenge.” “I’ve worked for four GMs,” he said. “Each one of them had talents and skills that were unique. I got the opportunity to pick their brains.” Manager Mike Scioscia believes Reagins will keep Stoneman’s philosophy, which is built around pitching and grooming young players. “I think Bill’s done a great job of laying the foundation for where were are now,” Scioscia said. “I know Tony has the same vision for where we want to go. The continuity will be there.” Some of Stoneman’s significant moves include hiring the relatively inexperienced Scioscia as manager before the 2000 season, signing pitcher Bartolo Colon in December 2003 and slugger Vladimir Guerrero in January 2004. Guerrero was the league MVP in 2004, and Colon won the Cy Young Award in 2005. Stoneman drew some criticism over the past several seasons for his inability to land a power hitter to protect Guerrero in the lineup. Scioscia said Reagins was going to be great in the new job. “Tony has a lot of similarities to Bill, his sense of duty and diligence,” Soscia said. “He’s a great communicator ... He’s not afraid to go out there and take chances.”

There is no reason for us to have lost this game.

Losing streak and failed chances to capitalize frustrate Titan leaders

– Bob Ammann,

men’s soccer head coach

The Titan line could not get the job done up front however, as it was unable to launch a successful strike against Anteater goalkeeper Pat Barton in the period. The Anteaters kept sufficient pressure on Douglas through the half, forcing him to make several key saves to keep the Titans in the game. The game continued into the second half with no score on the board. See SOCCER, Page 6
