Soldier wins lotto, but will still serve in Iraq

On Yahoo video viewers can watch and listen a touching story about the two-time Iraq war vet who recently won $1 million in the lotto, but is still keeping his promise to return to Iraq and serve in the war. Sgt. Wayne Leyde stopped at a 7-11 to get beef jerky when he picked up the winning lotto ticket in Spokane, Washington. Even though Leyde is ecstatic about the money he recently won, he says he’s volunterring to go back, regardless of his financial situation, because he made a promise to his fellow soldiers overseas.

Correction:

In Thurs., February 28 edition, an error was made. In the article “Meeting between Israelis and Palestinians heats up at CSUF” it was incorrectly stated that Palestine is a sovereign state. Palestine is currently under Israel military occupation. The Daily Titan appologizes for this error.

A Hairy Situation WEST BEND, Wis. - A restaurant cook is out of a job and facing a felony charge after being accused of hiding hairs in a ribeye because a customer complained the first steak served to him was overcooked. Kevin Hansen, who dined at the steakhouse with friends and family Saturday, said he ordered a 16-ounce ribeye cooked medium rare, with a warm, red center. Hansen went to police Sunday to complain of hair in the second steak. Kropp, 24, of West Bend, was charged Wednesday with a felony of placing foreign objects in edibles, carrying up to 3 1/2 years in prison and a $10,000 fine. Kropp admitted to police he put a few of his facial hairs on the steak, saying he was angry the customer sent the other steak back and thought he was “just trying to get free stuff,” according to the complaint.

MESA day brings out spirited competition Titan

rewards program wraps up

By CINDY ROBLES

Daily Titan Staff Writer news@dailytitan.com

Junior high school Mathematics, Engineering and Science Achievement (MESA) Day Prelims attracted 400 students from Orange County to Cal State Fullerton Thursday. Students competed in the areas of math, engineering and science. Many of the competitions required the students to create their projects prior to the day of the event. They had to pre-qualify at their schools before moving on and competing. Students were kept busy and were also given the opportunity to go on a campus tour and complete a scavenger hunt. Answers to the scavenger hunt were located in and around the Engineering and Computer Science Quad area. They had to find the answers to questions such as “Who is the Dean of the College of Engineering and Computer Science?” and “What is the room number of the MESA Office?” “They have to get 75 percent of the answers correct so we can provide them with a ticket, which will go into a raffle at the end of the day,” said Brenda Gamez, a volunteer from University Outreach. The MESA program at CSUF currently serves about 1,200 students in junior high and high school. The number has more than doubled in the last five years. “We’re growing every year. We’re serving more students,” said Vonna Hammerschmitt, MESA program director, who has been here for 23 years and has been involved with the MESA program ever since. The program has been in California for 35 years. It is located at 18 other sites in California, which include CSUs, UCs and private institutions. The CSUF MESA program serves 19 junior high schools and high schools in Anaheim, Fullerton, Santa Ana, Placentia, Costa Mesa and Whittier. MESA competitions are determined by a state-derived committee.

ASI looks to review how it works in order to extend the plan next year By Kristin Hutchinson For the Daily Titan

People submit ideas, which are reviewed by the committee. MESA students from all over the state participate in the same competitions. Competitions of the day ranged from Web design, math competitions and model building, to speech competitions. All have rules and regulations students have to follow. They can be disqualified for not following the rules or sometimes even for not labeling their projects correctly. One of the event’s competitions was “Stick Together,” which required students to design and construct model bridges made from no more than 200 craft sticks and water-soluble Elmer’s-type white glue. The winning bridge must be able to carry the maximum load while using the least amount of craft sticks. Civil Engineer Lab Technician LeRoy Sanchez said past bridges have been able to carry up to 200

pounds. “It all has to do with workmanship, design concept and construction. And they have to follow the rules. They have to have certain length requirements, height requirements and width requirements,” said Sanchez, who has been judging the competition for the past five years. “When they look like a bridge, they actually function like a bridge.” For the Web design competition, students had to create a Web page and were judged on page layout and design, content and technical aspects. “EggXpress” drew the largest crowd outside of the Humanities building. Students had to design and create a package that would keep as many eggs possible from breaking after being thrown from the top of the Humanities building. One of the competitions students did not have to pre-qualify for was “Foil Floaters.” The object of this competition

was to build a boat out of a sheet of aluminum foil and see how many marbles they can get to float. At the end of the day, students that placed first, second and third place in their categories were awarded medals. Winners at Thursday’s event will move on to compete at regionals, which will be held at UC Irvine. The date will be announced later this month. Director of University Outreach Dawn V. Valencia was one of the volunteers at the event. She worked for the MESA program statewide for eight years before coming to CSUF four years ago. “This actually gives them an opportunity to have hands-on experience with math and science,” said Valencia. “That’s what makes it real and exciting and fun. So if we want to encourage and increase the number of mathematicians, scientists and engineers, these are the kinds of events we need to have.”

The Titan Rewards Program, in which students received free items for supporting their fellow Titans, is wrapping up with the Titan women’s basketball game on Saturday. The pilot program, which Associated Students Inc. started, began Jan. 23. It rewards students with points for attending men’s and women’s home basketball games in order to boost game attendance. ASI Chief Communications Officer Juliana Santos said they would be reviewing the program after the basketball season ends, and will hopefully extend it to next year. “The ideal goal would be to offer a free semester of tuition in the future for the person who attends the most games,” said Chief Communications Officer for ASI Juliana Santos. “We also hope to be open to every university athletic event.” Santos said the program has been in the development stages for the last two to three years. It was designed as an incentive to promote school spirit and attendance for our outstanding sports teams and programs. Anyone with a Titan Card is eligible for the reward points, which do not extend into the playoff season. Many marketing experts said the Titan Rewards Program is similar to a loyalty or promotions program. CSUF marketing experts agreed the program will be effective if the See REWARDS, Page 2

Suicide bomb attack kills 40 in NW Pakistan PESHAWAR, Pakistan (AP)–A bomber blew himself up yesterday among thousands of tribal members discussing resistance to al-Qaida and the Taliban, killing 40 people in the third suicide attack in as many days in northwestern Pakistan. The rash of suicide bombings show President Pervez Musharraf ’s weakening control of the region despite the deployment of thousands of troops to crush Islamic militants. Five tribes were meeting to finalize a resolution that would punish anyone who helps Islamic militants, including al-Qaida and Taliban fighters. “It was a huge explosion and left body parts and blood scattered on the ground,” said Ramin Khan, another participant whose left leg and face were injured. Dr. Hamid Afridy, the area’s chief medical officer, said he counted 40 bodies and more than 100 injured were sent to the hospital. He said many were in critical condition and feared the death toll could rise.

Experimental planes kill two and injure two TAMPA, Fla. (AP)– An experimental plane that may have been having trouble landing struck another that was taxiing at an airfield Saturday, setting both on fire and killing two people, authorities said. Two people were critically injured. Both planes were single-engine and amateur-built, officials said. An Experimental Aircraft Association chapter was hosting a pancake breakfast at the airfield, east of Orlando and about 110 miles northeast of Tampa. The plane on the ground appeared to be taxiing to a ramp area when the other plane slammed into it. Two people who were in the plane that had left the runway were killed, authorities said. The other plane cartwheeled for about 100 yards before landing belly-up on a grass median at the airport. One of the survivors is in “grave” condition and the other is extremely critical. Both planes are considered experimental aircraft. They were flying in a single-engine aircraft that, according to the Federal Aviation Administration’s online aircraft registry, is registered to Christen Air Inc. in Wilmington, Del., Gaenicke said.

San Francisco awarded $2 million for oil spill SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – Agents for the owner of a cargo ship that dumped 54,000 gallons of oil into San Francisco Bay have agreed to pay the city of San Francisco $2 million for damages caused by the spill. City Attorney Dennis Herrera said the agreement announced yesterday was an “initial payment” to cover the costs of the November crash, not a final settlement. Thousands of birds died, oil-fouled beaches closed and Northern California’s crabbing season was delayed after the 900-foot Cosco Busan sideswiped the Bay Bridge, cutting a huge gash in its hull. Herrera said the money would go toward recouping the city’s cleanup costs immediately following the spill. The agreement was reached with Hudson Marine Management Services of Pennsauken, N.J., acting on behalf of the ship’s Hong Kong-based owner, Regal Stone Ltd.

Daily Titan and its staff won both national and state awards at the Associated Collegiate Press National College Newspaper Convention in San Francisco over the weekend. The paper placed fourth in the Best of Show category for daily newspapers represented at the convention.

Its Web site placed second among all college newspapers in the nation while the interactive element of the Web site placed fifth. The California College Media Association also presented awards for its statewide competition at the convention. The paper won second place in General Excellence and second place for Best Overall Design.

Reporters Karl Zynda and Jake Kilroy shared first place in the daily newspaper division’s Breaking News Story category for their coverage of last year’s brush fires. Stephanie Birditt, director of advertising for the Daily Titan, won third place for Best Black and White Advertisement and second place in Best Group Promotion. Ad production manager Keith

Hansen won second place for Best Sales Promotion Materials, and sales staff member Steve Kendall won second place for Best Color Ad. “This confirms that the Daily Titan is among the best newspapers in the nation,” said Tom Clanin, the paper’s newsroom adviser. “We excel in all aspects of our print edition and with our multimedia presentations on our Web site.”

REWARDS: TRYING TO CHURN UP SUPPORT THROUGH A POINT ACCUMULATION PLAN From Page 1

prizes are substantial enough to attract “some of the students who enjoy sport events for their scarce recreational time,” said Professor Emeritus of Marketing Scott Greene via e-mail. The points are redeemable for such items as water bottles, wristbands, hats and T-shirts, as well as other promotional items. All the items have an exclusive design specifically for the Titan Rewards Program. “Giving a consumer something in order to motivate them to buy the product” is how Professor of Mar-

keting Allen Broyles described the common practice. Broyles said these programs are known for their quick impact and short-term effect. “Once you stop it, the effect dies off rapidly,” Broyles said. However, Broyles said the program was logical and thought out well. Additionally, marketing professor Chiranjeev Kohli said it was a creative approach. “Will it fill up the stadium? Probably not, but if done right, it can be fairly effective in getting more spectators at a rather nominal cost,”

Kohli said via e-mail. Marketing Professor Katrin Harich said in an e-mail it is a form of advertising similar to that of “frequent flyer miles – the more you fly, the greater the rewards.” Harich said students are not in the habit of buying these games already and, therefore, are not seeking out the product/service frequently. “For points to serve as an incentive to attend games, the prizes better be fantastic,” Harich said. Santos said the program has been a “huge success so far.” With advertising spots on Titan Radio and the Student Portal, attendance has

increased and a buzz has been created. Senior mathematics major Jairo Aguayo said the Titan Rewards Program really encourages students to participate because they get something out of it. He described his excitement for one prize in particular. “I am going to go for that foam finger,” Aguayo said. “Who doesn’t want a foam finger?” In order to calculate their points, or redeem prizes, students may go to the Titan Student Union, room 269, and speak to Drew Wiley, who inputs points in the database.

USDA places two of its inspectors on leave Associated Press A union president said Friday that the U.S. Department of Agriculture has suspended at least two federal meat inspectors following the largest beef recall in the nation’s history. The agency confirmed Friday that it has placed a veterinarian and a floor inspector from the Chino-based Westland/Hallmark Meat Co. on paid administrative leave, said Stan Painter, chairman for National Joint Council of Food Inspection Locals. A USDA spokeswoman said the agency could not comment on the investigation or on personnel matters. Painter said a local union representative told him earlier Friday

that a third inspector was also placed on leave, but he could not confirm it with the agency, he said. The USDA recalled 143 million pounds of beef from the Chino slaughterhouse on Feb. 17. The recall came after the Humane Society of the United States released undercover video showing plant workers trying to get co-called “downer” cows — sick or crippled animals — to stand by shoving and dragging them with forklifts, zapping them with electric prods and aiming water hoses at their faces and nose. Two of the workers in the video face criminal charges and the slaughterhouse, which supplied one-fifth of the meat used in the National School Lunch Program, has closed.

CSUF and KCET film “O.C. Insight” By ALYSSA DIKITANAN

By CRAIG GROSSMAN

Beginning this semester, Cal State Fullerton students have been given the opportunity to integrate themselves with the various roles, mindsets and techniques of a skillful interviewer similar to the styles of Ken Burns and Michael Moore. In conjunction with the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (the same association that produces the annual Emmy Awards), the CSUF Radio-TV-Film department has introduced a class this past January called Documentary Interview. Taught by instructor Shelley Jenkins, the three-unit upper-division course includes a classroom lecture and lab portion, which is held in the new state-of-the-art television studios in the basement of Pollak Library South. At the studio the class’s 18 students are able to practice some of the skills and processes necessary to engage in documentary interviewing, including interview lighting, studio decorum and shooting and staging techniques. Because of the sponsorship of RTVF’s American Television class by the Academy (which uses archived interviews of writers, directors and actors from the Academy’s Archive of American Television), Jenkins and fellow class instructor Philippe Perebinossoff became familiar with its members. Jenkins was asked by a highranking official and member of the Academy about her potential interest in teaching a class that not only instructs students how to conduct documentary-style interviews, but having them contribute their work (based on many of the Academy’s guidelines) from the class into the Academy’s archives as well. “The director of the archives, a woman by the name of Karen Herman, asked me once if I would be interested in interviewing people for the archives and when we started it, exploring it more, she said ‘Would you be interested in conducting a class in which you teach students how to conduct documentary interviews, and we can help you set those up. And then whatever is done can actually become an official part of the archives, and so your students can say they’ve done something recognized by the Academy,’” said Jen-

kins, a part- and full-time instructor at CSUF since 1994 and 2000 respectively. Among other duties in the class, the students are required to maintain a research log-diary of findings and methods they use in coalescing their data on interviewees. They also do copious research on their interview subjects. In the final interview/ report for the class, students will be on a team in which each will collaborate as a producer, director and interviewer. They are expected to interview a local television personality in the library studio. Later in the semester, students in the class will be able to witness a live, on-campus interview of a surprise celebrity to be conducted by the Academy Foundation. “Members of the Academy Foundation are going to interview a celebrity of some sort on campus, so that my class can watch them and see how they go about doing it,” said Jenkins, a five-year Academy member. “One of the reasons why

it’s a [celebrity] surprise is because it’s in the context of class.” Twenty-three-year-old RTVF senior Erik Saznz said he’s impressed with the documentary interview class. “I like it,” said Saznz, who enjoyed the Sally Field and Ron Howard interviews the class watched. “I walked into this class thinking totally something else. I got this, and I’m actually very excited because you get to learn how to interview people. And just the factor of it being a real practical class and using everything you’ve learned, and to something that you can gain in the future [is exciting].” Twenty-three-year-old RTVF major Gabe Suarez had positive things to say about the class as well. “Most of the [RTVF] classes focus on production; this class actually helps you out on the interviewing process and especially if you want to get into documentary,” said Suarez, who has previously worked on an immigration documentary. “So it’s

a good asset to have.” Considering that it is an original class at CSUF (similar courses had been previously taught at Temple University and UCLA), Jenkins, who just finished shooting “The Mystics: A 50 Year Legacy,” a fulllength documentary about magicians, said she likes the flow of the class and hopes that Perebinossoff would have a role if the class returns next semester. “He [Perebinossoff] and I both fostered a really strong relationship, and I would like to have us switch off the duties on this course. The first time [for the documentary interview course] has not been bad,” said Jenkins of her experiences with this semester’s class.

The cost of living in California, especially in Orange County, is among the highest in the United States. Just imagine how difficult it is for a mother who is working fulltime and pursuing a college degree or an illegal immigrant garment worker who is barely scraping by on less than minimum wage. Cal State Fullerton and public television station KCET have partnered to film the first two episodes of “OC Insight,” an issues-oriented talk show discussing national issues, such as wages, cost of living and illegal immigration, and how they impact the people of Orange County. The first episode, “Waging A Living,” showcases four working-class women around the country who are struggling to make it on their own while working a full-time job and going back to school for their degrees, said Cheryl Perreira, director of the KCET Partnership. “Many people have this perception of Orange County as being wealthy, so they don’t think of a working poor-class existing,” said panelist Professor Davina Ling, assistant professor of economics and director of the International Center for the Economics of Pharmaceuticals, Aging and Health at CSUF. “This is a good topic to look at for Orange County and California in general. This will shed some light on the topic, especially with the economic downturn and with the struggles of the working poor.” The panelists will discuss the role of higher education and workingclass women, housing, the cost of living in Orange County, the economy and health care. “This episode is especially important for some CSUF students because many are adults who have re-entered college for their degrees and are also working full-time,” Ling said. “Many students are also first-generation college students and come from working families, so they can really relate, especially with the issue of expensive housing and [the] high cost of living on top

of tuition.” Ling said she hopes this episode will help students learn more about the issues of health care and the economy and its affect on both Orange County and the U.S., especially before this year’s presidential elections. The second episode, “Made In L.A.,” showcases the exploitation of illegal immigrants working in Los Angeles as Forever 21 (clothing company) garment workers and their struggle to make it on their own with their below-minimumwage salaries. Despite the fact that they are illegal immigrants, many believe they are being treated unfairly. By presenting this issue to an audience, there is hope of getting these workers the rights they deserve for the work they do, Perreira said. These moderated discussions among CSUF faculty and other experts highlight issues that have appeared on the PBS program “Point of View.” “The point of this partnership and project is to link our show with the PBS documentary and bring these important issues from the local level of Orange County to the national level,” Perreira said. “We want to showcase the University’s programs, faculty, research and students while expanding our visibility in Orange County.” The two episodes were taped and produced in the College of Communications Television Studios with the help of CSUF faculty, staff and students alongside KCET professionals. KCET news reporter Roger Cooper will host the two episodes and moderate the discussion among the panel of experts. “We are excited to tap into and draw from the vast resources available through the students and staff of Cal State Fullerton,” Cooper said. “I am impressed by the desire at the university to do quality television because that is what we are about at KCET.” These first two episodes of the “OC Insight” will air on KCET’s new Orange County channel, KCET-Orange, some time this spring with the possibility of a screening on campus, Perriera said.

Titan Editorial Providing insight, analysis and perspective since 1960

The strike, part two After nearly three months of misery, an accord was struck and the writers ended their strike. Our fears of endless “Farmer Wants a Wife” marathons and “Deal or No Deal” reruns seemed to be put to rest. We emphasize “seemed.” Now, a fresh round of striking is about to begin – and it’s the actors’ turn to make demands. The Screen Actor’s Guild’s contract with Hollywood producers is on the verge of expiring and, so far, no new deal has been agreed upon. Like some horrible episode of the “Twilight Zone,” things are happening exactly as they did last year when the writers strike was only a rumor. Movies are currently being rushed into production in order to avoid being affected by the impending strike. Those that would definitely be affected no matter the production schedule are simply being put on hold, creating a de facto strike. Please Hollywood, we are begging you, don’t put us through this again. We cannot take the nervewracking fear, the sleepless nights wondering if and when our favorite stars will ever grace the silver screen again. In fact, no fan wants to go through this ridiculous mess again so soon. Rejecting the pleas of the writers caused a massive and unnecessary strife within the entertainment industry and only served to alienate many loyal viewers.

Letters to the Editor:

We, the viewing public, saw these greedy studio execs as just that – cold, heartless moneygrubbers who would rather pocket a little extra cash than give it to those who truly deserved it. But, of course, the studios eventually caved to the writers’ demands. Apparently, owning Warner Bros. doesn’t mean you can manufacture quality entertainment out of thin air. If people think celebrities are living in some pampered, unrealistic world, just take a look at the studio heads. These people are living on the fluffiest of clouds, clearly believing themselves to be Gods of the entertainment world, capable of manifesting cinematic brilliance with a single thought. And now they want to go to war over money yet again. But no matter how long they think they can hold out, the execs will bow down at the actors’ feet in the end, and rightfully so. Let’s not forget that most actors are just as poorly paid as the writers. Only a handful with the big names make the big bucks. The image of the struggling actor who waits tables isn’t just a stereotype, and any SAG-related strike will be just as devastating on a financial level to them as it was for the writers. There is something to be said for learning from the past to avoid making the same mistakes in the future. Fortunately, this mistake didn’t happen so long ago. We can only hope that it won’t be ignored.

Homemade Terrorists Students are living in fear of when and where the next shooting will occur By Melissa Pollard

Daily Titan Staff Writer opinion@dailytitan.com

With the multiple school shootings that have happened over the last few weeks, it makes me wonder just how safe we are on campus. I wouldn't be surprised if this is the thought running through many people's minds as they walk through the quad or sit in class. I feel safe at Cal State Fullerton, but that's because of the security that is on campus. We have our own police station located across from the State College Parking Structure on Gym Drive. Having them so close makes me feel comfortable in case of a crisis, such as the one that happened over 30 years ago. In 1976 there was a shooting here at CSUF. Edward Allaway, a custodian, took a semi-automatic rifle into the basement and first floor of the Pollak Library, killing seven people and wounding two others. But while I do feel safe on campus, I don't have the mindset that "It's not going to happen here, it's

not going to happen to us." I know that anything can happen at any time. Many school administrations feel similar and set up many secutiry systems to prevent a school shooting from happening. Some schools have lockdowns when they hear of a threat to the students of the school. Some schools have gone even farther and installed metal detect o r s at entrances to the school. If a school feels it needs to have these precautions, then that's what needs to happen. One of the scariest things about school shootings is the threat of a copycat, someone who sees what happened and wants to do it too. This seems to be the case of the shootings that happened recently. Four different shootings happened in one week. These shootings occurred all over the country and were not centered to one area.

Hillary just doesn’t connect with women By Sarah J. Cruz

Daily Titan Staff Writer opinion@dailytitan.com

Hillary Clinton irritates me. She makes me feel like a degenerate. It’s because I focus more on her superficial characteristics than her qualifications. I see her imperfections – not her policies. But based on her polarizing nature, I know I am not the only one stumped by this first lady-turned possible commander-in-chief. Her incessant and very personal media coverage highlights the inconsistent way we judge our presidential candidates of different genders. More attention has been focused on her appearance than on those of the other candidates. Sure, we talk about how old John McCain is. We talk about Mitt Romney's debonair good looks and whether people were voting for him based on his his smooth, businessman image. But these are minor topics. Even Barack Obama's skin color is a small ripple in comparison to the attention on Clinton's gender. Perhaps we have come farther in racial equality than we have in gender equality. Feminism has won many major battles, but this next step in the quest for equality seems to leave our country feeling a little divided. Women have fought for suffrage and increased equality in the workplace. We have made cracks in the glass ceiling. Why, then, should this next, most sensible step in the quest for equality be based on such superficial issues? As a young woman, I have been brought up to believe women can do anything men can do. It seems logical, then, that I would fully support female candidacy, whether or not I would actually vote for a particular woman, as a sign of my solidarity with women's equality. Yet I struggle to seriously consider Clinton's candidacy. I cannot seem

to see past her very superficial, irritating qualities. Some of her more obvious feminine traits – her lipstick, her helmet hair, the wrinkles on her soft cheeks, her sensible pumps and her screechy voice – make me roll my eyes and turn away. This is troubling to me because I have passed judgment on her capability of running the nation without learning about the things she stands for and believes in. I judged her solely based on gender. Clinton is one of the most polarizing candidates in recent history. This is, in large part, because of her gender. Her brash personality and her husband's infamous presidency also play a part. She is being judged more harshly than her counterparts though, and perhaps this is because we still look for traditionally male traits in our presidential candidates. Candidates' strengths are often measured by past military services. Contenders play up their veteran status to convince the American public they are tough and able to lead the nation in war time. Clinton does not exhibit any of this type of strength. She, like most American women, did not serve in the military. Our society's practice of judging women by their appearance also contributes to the harsh judgments we pass on Clinton. Models teach daily courses on desirable feminine attributes, and we apply those standards to our first feasible female president and dissect her based on her physical appearance. In addition, Americans have no fondness for old age. Clinton falls in the crux of these societal flaws and ends up unfairly bearing the brunt of our weaknesses. Perhaps we, as a society, are not ready to elect a female president until we can learn to put aside appearance, age and gender – as we have done with race – and consider candidates on more fundamental and significant characteristics.

The first shooting was on Feb. 8 in Louisiana. The second was on Feb. 11 in Tennessee. The following day, there was shooting in Oxnard. The final shooting of the four was on Feb. 14, in Illinois. After the massacre at Columbine High School in Colorado on April 20, 1999, all schools were on edge and some received threats that something similar would happen on their campus. At my high school, the administration received m a n y threats to the students in the days following Columbine. One of these was a possible shooter on campus. The whole school was shut down. All students were held in their fifth period classrooms with the doors locked and security guards and police posted at every door. We were held on campus until almost 5 p.m., nearly two hours after school was supposed to be let out

Celebrity marriages are just for publicity Just as millions of people are tuning in to election coverage, there is another watch taking place amongst celebrity gossips – the Owen and Kate watch. The question over whether or not they’re dating again, which only came about because they were seen together, has reinforced my belief that people are obsessed with who’s dating who. However, this obsession does not only hold true in regards to celebrities. In fact, people seem to be just as fascinated with relationship gossip about everyday “normal” folk as they are about staying upto-date on celebrity couples. Though I might just be saying that because I’m a girl and women tend to be bigger gossips than men. Whatever the case may be, there is one great difference between celebrity relationships and couples outside the Hollywood zip code – lifespan. After the media frenzy over a new relationship dies down, the calm sets in and the Hollywood couple is left alone with each other – That’s when it happens. They break up. The Hollywood relationship is far more likely to end sooner than that of the two ordinary people. It’s still undeniable that celebrity relationships often end in the blink of an eye and each star goes on to his or her next publicity stunt … I mean relationship. The same carelessness that is seen in famous relationships can also be seen in famous marriages. In fact, marriage has almost become a joke in Tinsel Town. For me, the faith in celebrity marriages died with the divorce of Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe. The day that news broke, I was left with such disappointment and denial. For so long, I had clung to them as the example of a perfect Hollywood marriage.

It was a scary feeling to think there was someone on campus who could possibly hurt me or even kill me. After we were let out, I was scared to walk to my car alone and had friends walk with me. This was a necessary thing for the administration to do. The risk of there actually being someone on campus was too high. Risking the lives of students isn't something that should be taken lightly. Every precaution should be taken to secure the safety of everyone on that campus. Some may feel that lockdowns and metal detectors are going overboard on being safe. My question to them is how safe is too safe? Students may think having police and security on campus is like having a "babysitter." To me, having them is just having a "protective eye" that is watching over me. Schools have not gone too far to protect their students. Each school administration has their own thoughts and ways to protect the students of their school. They are all entitled to their own ways of preventing a school shooting from happening on their campus.

The Gossip Girl

By Amy Robertson opinion@dailytitan.com

I would put them on a pedestal in front of people who badmouthed celebrity relationships after the divorce of the ultimate power couple – Jen and Brad. Since then, I have come to the conclusion that celebrities just don’t place the amount of value in the sacrament of marriage as there should be. Just like their children, celebrities handle marriages like accessories to flaunt around for the cameras. Marriage is a headline and a cover story, another headline and cover story with the pregnancy that usually follows, and even a third headline and cover story when time for the divorce rolls around. The latest couple to make news in celebrity journalism besides Owen and Kate is Paris Hilton and Good Charlotte rocker Benji Madden. Hilton has been seen sporting a ring on her wedding finger, which just makes me even more disgusted beyond the mere odd pair the two of them make. A ring on the wedding finger is a symbol of something sacred and should be worn with love. Engagements should be a huge deal in someone’s life, and for some reason, I don’t feel that Hilton wears her ring with the same amount of reverence that it should be given. However, whether or not the ring is serving the purpose it should, which is to symbolize engagement, I still only give her and Madden three months tops. And I’m willing to take bets on that one.

Hollywood producer teaches RTVF students the biz Haley Barnett

daily titan staff writer news@dailytitan.com

All students know what to expect out of the mundane first day of class rituals we all experience year after year. This semester, students in the new Radio-TV-Film class “The Biz: From Idea to Screen,” received a little more than a syllabus and an introduction. These 205 students got a working Hollywood producer and a confidentiality agreement. RTVF 341 student Priscilla Niessink explained, “We are going to have a lot of people who work in the entertainment industry share some sensitive insider information. The teacher just wants to create a safe environment for them and it gives us

the upper hand.” Working writers, producers, agents and managers will be speaking to the class and perhaps, be sharing first-hand experiences and knowledge they have gained while working on past and present projects. Although the opportunity to hear from these professionals is impressive, it is not just the guest speakers who make this class special. Shelia Hanahan Taylor is not only the visiting instructor for RTVF 341, but is also a founding partner at a successful Hollywood production company and has worked on projects such as the “Final Destination” and “American Pie” franchises. Hanahan Taylor currently has several projects in production. Apart from her impressive film credits, Hanahan Taylor has much experience teaching on a graduate level as a visiting professor at UCLA’s film and television school, as well as working as a guest teacher abroad at The University of Paris - Sorbonne.

Despite her hectic schedule, Hanahan Taylor still finds time to drive down to the Cal State Fullerton campus to teach aspiring television and filmmakers what she loves. “I love helping really creative people with the business aspect of Hollywood,” Hanahan Taylor said. “This class is shedding light on achieving artistic goals with a business focus.” A central focus of the class is to provide students with the information and tools necessary to make it in this intimidating and competitive business. “Shelia is going to tell us how to deal with business in the real world like no other class does,” Niessink said. “She is going to teach us how to get in and how to make deals. Also, [she is going to teach students] how to make your own contacts and to get people interested. We gain more information through her experiences.” Combining information learned in more specialized entertainment

driven classes, Hanahan Taylor will go through the real “nuts and bolts” of the moviemaking business. “I want the students to be able to combine their burning desire to succeed in the industry with a better understanding of how things really work,” Hanahan Taylor said. “I have seen many really talented people with a fantasy vision of how Hollywood works get let down and move back home after a year or two. I want to help better prep the next generation so they stick around and make an impact.” The department of RTVF and the concentration of entertainment studies decided to initiate a visiting Fellows program. The program brings working professionals to lecture and teach on the CSUF campus. Dr. Edward Fink, department chair of RTVF worked alongside Coral Ohl, concentration coordinator of Entertainment Studies, to maximize the learning potential of the visiting fellow program.

“We wanted to get the most bang for our buck. Instead of just having a one-day workshop with a guest speaker, we thought it would be more beneficial to have class with a visiting working professional for an entire semester,” Fink said. “That way, students could get academic credit and more information could be covered.” Part-time RTVF faculty member, Raquel Cecilia, works as Hanahan Taylor’s CSUF faculty contact and deals with much of the administrative work the class entails. “I’m really psyched she’s here,” Cecilia said. “The students are really fortunate to have her. Most students don’t have much business exposure in a production class. Many classes teach how to make a movie, but this is way more than that.” The class’s large enrollment displays obvious interest, but with the proposed budget cuts from the state and funding coming from a grant for the class, “The Biz” may not have

the funds needed to survive. “Industry folk love to give back,” Fink said. “So the possibility of the class coming back is there. We have to wait and see.” “The Biz” student, Niessink, said she knows how lucky she is to be in this possibly one-time offered class. “As of now it is probably one of the most interesting and favorite classes I have ever taken. The fact that a top Hollywood producer is here to teach us her story and how she got where she’s at is pretty unbelievable,” Niessink said.

Pollak Library reference desk a mouse click away Students can add the new program to their “friends list” on MySpace by May Oo

for the daily titan

news@dailytitan.com

The Pollak Library is testing a pilot program called “IM’IN to the Library” this semester. It is keeping up with demand better than Matthew Mallard, the coordinator of “IM’IN to the Library,” had expected. With the help of “Meebo,” students will be able reach the librarian’s assistance without leaving their desktop. “Meebo” is a Web messenger that allows the user to log in to all the instant message screen names from AIM, Yahoo, MSN, GTalk, ICQ and Jabber at the same time and chat for free without downloading or in-

stalling the instant messengers. Whether at home or school, or while typing in the Pollak Library, by logging on to “Meebo.com,” students will be able to chat with the Cal State Fullerton librarian and access their entire online instant messenger buddy list. “We decided to go with ‘Meebo’ because it is open and easy to use,” Mallard said. “IM’IN to the Library” started on Jan. 22, but the system still has some quirks and technical difficulties. Mallard said they are not sure whether it is possible to instant message from cell phones or not, but for those who have iPhones, it is easy to access through the “Meebo” widget. A Web widget is a portable chunk of code that can be installed and executed within any separate HTML-based Web page by an end user without requiring additional compilation. “Meebo” offers embeddable in-

stant messager windows that can be dropped onto any Web page like MySpace or other blog sites. The “Meebo” widget allows people to chat with visitors from Web sites in real time without creating profiles or screen names. The “Meebo” process is supposed to simplify students’ queries in the library. If a student adds “pollaklibrary” on MySpace, a “Meebo” instant messenger window can be found on the profile page. By typing questions into the “Meebo” box, the available librarian will respond to any questions. “IM’IN” is only available during normal reference desk hours, but another way to instant message the library is to go to the library’s main Web page and click on the “IM the librarian” button. Users are not required to give their real names to chat. “We are still trying to figure [out]

ways to market ‘IM’IN’ better, but it has been successful so far itself without any advertisement,” Librarian Will Breitbach said. According to Mallard, the Pollak Library’s “Question by Question” data tracking system shows students submitted 3.9 percent of libraryrelated questions through Meebo/ IM, and 4.5 percent through direct phone calls from Jan. 22 through Feb. 8. Although these numbers cannot compare to the number of students who walk up to the reference desk (90.2 percent), “Question by Question” data has proven students are using Meebo/IM almost as much as the usage of the telephone. It is the responsibility of all librarians at the reference desk to answer questions through Meebo/IM. If there are people at the reference desk who need the librarian’s assistance, students asking questions in Meebo will have to wait until the librarian

finishes with the walk-up queries first. “I was helping a student last week through IM with a specific subject and I was able to help the student out in the end, and it felt really good when I got a response from the student. This is so cool,” Librarian Mary Anne Lynn said. If online users have any urgent questions for a librarian, they can

chat with one 24 hours a day, seven days a week through “Live Chat 24/7.” “Live Chat” is a live online reference chat system provided by Question Point. Librarians from “Live Chat” are available throughout the country. Although the system has its quirks, “Meebo” is creating a new way to access information from the library.

Men’s basketball blows out Cal State Long Beach

The Titans defeat the 49er’s by 34 points in home finale by michal olszewski

Daily Titan Staff Writer sports@dailytitan.com

The first day of March Madness proved to be tame for the Cal State Fullerton men’s basketball team as it steamrolled past Long Beach State 85-51 in its home finale Saturday at the Titan Gym. Scott Cutley led the senior night festivities for the Titans, finishing with 25 points, 13 rebounds, four assists and four steals to bounce back from the loss against Cal State Northridge on Thursday. “This was my last game here and I wanted to make it a good one, and we got the win so that’s all that matters,” Cutley said. The Titans, 19-8 and 11-4 in the Big West Conference, forced 30 turnovers and outscored the 49ers 40-1 on points off of turnovers to give Fullerton the largest scoring margin victory against the 49ers (6-22, 3-11) in school history. Head Coach Bob Burton said the team didn’t shoot well and couldn’t believe the turnover margin. “The key was the pressure with the 30 turnovers,” Burton said. “I don’t think we played overly great, especially in the first half, but in the second half we created a lot of turnovers that led to easy baskets.” 49er Head Coach Don Monson gave credit to the Titans defense. “They turned up the pressure and we weren’t able to handle it,” Monson said. The Titans trailed early, down 15-8 before finally breaking out and starting a 15-0 run midway through the half to take the lead for good. With the score 34-28 entering the second half, CSUF made sure to

bury any comeback hopes for Long Beach. Josh Akognon got back into form, sparking another Titan 15-0 run with seven points to extend the lead to 49-28. The third-leading scorer in the Big West finished with 19 points and gave Cutley credit for the win. “[Cutley] pulled us to the victory,” Akognon said. “Him making shots, pumping everyone else up and just being the leader on and off the court. He’s just doing what he does.” Cutley went down at the end of the first half. He was holding his back and had to be helped off the court. “[When I went down] I was just thinking ‘Not again,’ ” Cutley said. He returned with one of his best halves of the season, scoring 15 points and seven rebounds. “That’s the Scott Cutley we need in the [Big West] Tournament,” guard Frank Robinson said. Once again the emerging presence of guard Ray Reed proved to be a major advantage for the Titans. The senior, despite playing with a sprained ankle, finished with 13 points, nine assists and one turnover in only 22 minutes. “[Reed] has just been phenomenal,” Burton said. 49er and Big West leading scorer Donovan Morris scored 25 points on 8-15 shooting. “I don’t know if anybody has an answer for Donovan Morris,” Burton said. “Seemed like our guys were guarding him pretty good, but he’s hard to keep down.” The Titans’ Robinson inched closer to a school milestone with four points and four rebounds. With seven more rebounds, he will become only the 10th Titan to reach 1,000 points and 500 rebounds in career, and the last to do so since Pape Sow during the 2002-04 seasons. “Those numbers in three years would be big,” Robinson said. “I’ve

the Big West Tournament against Cal State Bakersfield tomorrow at 7 p.m. at the Rabobank Center. CSUF plays their season finale against UC Irvine at 7 p.m. at the Bren Center next Saturday.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Newlook Lakers and Mavericks, same old Kobe. Kobe Bryant took charge late in the game, scoring 22 points in the fourth quarter and eight in overtime to finish with 52 yesterday in the Lakers’ 108-104 victory over Dallas. Mavericks coach Avery Johnson tried a variety of ways to stop him. Nothing worked. “We gave him a single look, then we double-teamed him, then we gave him a triple-team and he split the triple-team and scored,” Johnson said. “We tried to zone him, we tried to funnel him in the trap for a zone and he went the other way. He didn’t cooperate on any of our defenses. “Obviously he milked the free throw line on us and he just had it all going. He’s a great player. He has these (games). Lots of these.” Bryant hit the 50-point mark for

the 22nd time in his career and first time this season. He went 15-of-27 from the floor and, constantly driving and drawing fouls, was 20-of-27 from the line. He was perfect shooting free throws in the fourth quarter, making 13, and converted the two he took in overtime. That after he missed five of eight from the line in the first half. “I was really upset with myself at halftime,” he said, adding that he told himself to “just relax and go knock them down.” Bryant also had 11 rebounds and four assists, while Pau Gasol had 17 points and 14 rebounds in his 14th game for Los Angeles. “All in all, we didn’t give them any good looks, and I think eventually that wears a team down,” Bryant said. “We really got it done on the defensive end.
