Fullerton honors veterans Veterans Day ceremonies salute those who have served in military ALLY FITZGERALD Daily Titan
Veterans of past and present were honored Monday by the city of Fullerton with a parade and celebration to thank soldiers of peacetime and wartime for their sacrifices. The City of Fullerton, in conjunction with Fullerton American Legion Post 142 and Fullerton Emblem Club 469, hosted the 26th annual Veterans Day ceremony and the 16th annual Veterans Day parade. Veterans of all ages, representing multiple conflicts and wars, assembled with Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (JROTC) units from Fullerton high schools at Ful-
lerton Downtown Plaza and marched to Hillcrest Park, flying the colors of the United States and all 50 states. Keynote speaker Maj. Gen. Megan P. Tatu, commanding general of the 79th Sustainment Support Command in Los Alamitos, Calif., addressed the crowd of about 1,000 people. Tatu spoke about the many sacrifices made by members of the armed forces, as well as their families. She thanked those who had served, paid reverence to those who had lost lives and limb, and thanked those in the community who had taken time out of their days to remember service members. Though she noted that the ceremony honored veterans in attendance who served in Vietnam, the Korean Conflict, Grenada and the Balkans, Tatu also spoke about the men and
women who currently servemany of whom are collegeaged. “Know, as I have been privileged to personally witness, that the warriors of today are every bit as honorable, patriotic and courageous as those who filled their ranks in a previous time,” Tatu said. Those “warriors of today,” including Cal State Fullerton students, were also present. Approximately 30 members of the CSUF Student Veterans Association walked in the parade and attended the ceremony, clad in blue T-shirts with the words “Titan Veteran” prominently displayed. One CSUF veteran, Joslyn Vascura, 24, a sociology major who served four years in the United States Marine Corps, was deployed to Afghanistan. “I am extremely fortunate to have gone through all that,”
Vascura said. “And if I had to do it all over again, I would do it in a heartbeat.” Jeff Harris, who serves on the Veterans Day Committee for the City of Fullerton, said he gained much from his time spent in the United States Army and added though military service may not be for everyone, community service is important for all. “It’s not for everybody, but it’s one way of doing public service,” Harris said. “Everybody should do public service of some sort, and the military is one way.” In her speech, Tatu offered advice for how those who did not serve could best honor veterans, both those in attendance and those who had lost their lives in service to the country.

While walking down a long aisle of dog kennels, the sounds of loud barking echoing in the background, a teenage girl spots a white dog, matted and shaking in his cage. Ashley Cunningham, who was 14 years old at the time, saw the dog and instantly felt a connection with him. “We knew we had to rescue him,” Cunningham said. Cunningham and her mother adopted the young cockapoo from a shelter in Arizona that same day and named him Curly. Curly became Cunningham’s first rescue dog and left a lasting impression on her life. Although Curly recently passed away at the age of 15, Cunningham continues her efforts to rescue dogs as the president and founder of the Fullerton-based nonprofit animal rescue organization, Barks of Love (BOL). The program rescues and finds homes for dogs, but is different from traditional animal shelters by being 100 percent kill-free. It uses foster homes and strives to find each dog a permanent place to live. “You can rescue a dog from a shelter and stick it into a boaring facility, but you’re not really doing anything but moving the
dog from one cage to another cage,” Cunningham said. “With my rescue, what I wanted to do was start this foster program so that I would only rescue dogs if I had a foster.” The organization has contracts with all of the shelters in Southern California and gets a list of dogs that are set to be euthanized and gets tips from its Facebook page. After going through the daily lists, BOL sees which dogs it can help and rescues them. An estimated 3.7 million animals were euthanized in the nation’s shelters in 2008, according to the American Humane Association website. BOL has rescued over 800 dogs since it began in 2008—all through foster homes. After a dog is saved from a shelter, the organization takes the time to find out the dog’s background history, including medical and training problems. From there, it makes the dogs suitable for a foster home. “Everything we do is driven by our passion for matching families with the right dogs,” Cunningham said. Once a proper foster family is found, BOL helps them by paying for supplies, such as leashes and food bowls, most of which are donated. However, about 90 percent of the organization’s revenue from monetary donations goes towards veterinarian bills, Cunningham said. SEE SHELTERS, 5

CSUF women’s soccer captures Big West Title Pulliam named MVP as Titans roll past UCR to NCAA Tournament VINCENT LA ROSA Daily Titan
The Cal State Fullerton women’s soccer team punched their improbable ticket to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2007 with a 2-1 shoot-out victory over UC Riverside in the Big West Tournament final. CSUF senior goalkeeper Katie Pulliam was named tournament MVP after saving three of the Highlanders’ five opportunities in the shootout.
Pulliam was also the hero in the semifinals, where she stopped two shootout attempts to down Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. It must have felt like déjà vu for the Titans. After a 1-1 scoreline in regulation and overtime in their semifinal matchup with Cal Poly SLO on Thursday, they repeated the same pattern in the championship match on Sunday. However, unlike Thursday, it was the Titans taking the early lead over their opponent, albeit coming from a familiar face. In the 14th minute, an early cross from the right side by freshman defender Jazzmin Mancilla found junior mid-
fielder Brianna Chapman at the far post just six yards from the Highlander goal. Chapman had the presence of mind to head the cross back against the face of goal to senior forward Nikki McCants, who was waiting unmarked at the opposite post. UCR goalkeeper Elizabeth Silas tried her best to change directions and rush to her opposite post but wasn’t in time to stop McCants’ header from finishing into an open net to give CSUF the lead. The goal was McCants’ second in as many games. While netting only once in the regular season, the CSUF forward proved to be clutch ending the Big West Tournament with

both of the Titans’ goals from their two matches. “I feel great. I couldn’t be more proud of my team and Katie’s efforts in overtime,” said McCants, def lecting much of the praise back on her team when asked about her goals after the match. “I’m lost for words. I’m just very excited.” A goal to the good, the Titans thoroughly dominated the rest of the first half, holding UCR to zero shots in the first 45 minutes. “We played a very motivated and a very good Riverside team today,” Head Coach Demian Brown said. “And for our back four, looking at the stats here, we had zero shots

against us in the first and five in the second, for them to play the way that they’ve done all year long here in a very important conference tournament is tremendous.” But the Titans’ dominance in possession and defense aside, a second goal eluded the team and as the match wore on, the Highlanders would eventually play their way into the contest piling on pressure in the closing stages. In the 85th minute, the Highlanders would finally break through when Mancilla was dispossessed by UCR forward Tyler Cunningham in the Titan box before bringing down Danielle Lopez. The referee immediately awarded

UCR a penalty, and Cunningham sent a deft chip into the back of the CSUF net to tie the match at one with a little more than three minutes remaining. Playing overtime in their second Big West Tournament final in two years, the Titans were unable to find an answer for the UCR defense and were forced into a shootout with an automatic berth to the NCAA Tournament on the line. As she did in the match Thursday’s, Pulliam again replaced starting goalkeeper Lindsey Maricic. And once again, the penalty specialist did not disappoint. SEE WOMEN’S SOCCER, 8

“The greatest thanks that an American can give a veteran is to not waste the freedoms that our men and women sacrificed to gain,” Tatu said. “Live your
lives well, and to the fullest. Be productive citizens, and in so doing, you give meaning to their sacrifice.” The event also included the performance of service songs of each branch of the military. Former and current members of
each service were asked to stand and be honored as the songs of their branch were played. Propeller-driven military planes from Air Combat USA roared over the day’s festivities with a fly-over. Air Combat USA is a Fullerton firm based at
Fullerton Airport that allows civilians to try their hand at military aviation and dogfighting flights. Harris, who helped organize the event, said Monday’s ceremony was one of the largest in the city’s history.

Cal State filmmakers celebrated At the 23rd annual Media Arts Festival, Cal State Fullerton students bring home honors BRITTANY CURRIE Daily Titan
Four Cal State Fullerton students competed as finalists Saturday at the 23rd annual CSU Media Arts Festival hosted at Steven G. Mihaylo Hall to highlight the work of media students at California State University schools. CSU professors chose 31 finalists out of 154 entries from 16 CSU campuses, and industry professionals hand-picked the winning entries in nine categories. Twenty-one student films were screened in the Charton Family Lecture Theatre to judges and finalists. Director Donald Petrie, whose works include Miss Congeniality and How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, delivered the keynote address. Students competed in nine different categories: animation,
documentary, experimental, interactive media, music video, narrative, television, short screenplay and feature screenplay. The best of student films, videos and other media work was screened, followed by an awards ceremony. The event allowed students an opportunity to network and learn from professionals in the entertainment and media industry and provided students with critical and peer review. “We have definitely had through the years industry judges (that) will call a student after the festival and give them some work,” said Joanna Sharp, director of the media arts festival. “That’s the best thing that we do here is actually get peoples work seen by professional who have the power to really shortcut them into professional careers.” The Rosebud Awards were handed out to the finalists. Each first place winner received $500. CSUF student Amanda Campbell won third place for
her narrative film Lucid 8, and Mark C. Roe took second place for his music video for Onuinu’s “Always Awkward.” Titans also performed well in the animation category. Patricia Pham won second place for her work Typewriter’s Cafe, and Nina Sharifi was awarded with third place for her animation Seance. Campbell submitted her film after her professor encouraged her to enter. Right before the submission deadline, she personally went to Cal State Long Beach to turn it in. A couple weeks later, she found out she was a finalist. “It was a really great feeling,” Campbell said. Students from Cal State San Jose, San Marcos, Channel Islands and Long Beach, as well as San Diego State and San Francisco State took home prizes for first place in a variety of categories. Professors helped choose the finalist films, videos and interactive media in a pre-screening committee which consisted of 11 judges across the CSU cam-
puses. Judges watched the films and picked the top four, then sent the scripts to industry professionals who picked the winners for each category. The judges included three producers, an animator from Dreamworks Studio and a writer. “When it came time to place all the films we all gathered in a room and they were actually all categorized so they were put into animation, narrative, documentary all that kind of stuff and then we pretty much went through chunk by chunk,” said David Stodolny, this year’s Dreamwork’s sponsored judge. Stodolny said judging the students’ work was not easy. At
times the judges disagreed and pleaded their case of why they thought their choice should win. The Media Arts Festival exposes students to the work of their peers and gives critical reviews. Established in 1991 by the CSU Summer Arts program, it gives students the opportunity to present their work for critical review. The Summer Arts are workshop courses in theater, dance, music, visual arts, writing, media and arts education that provides a unique environment to work with the best artists and master teachers in the world today.

Hundreds respond to funeral ad SARA HIATT Hundreds showed up for the funeral of a British veteran after an ad in a local newspaper was posted on Twitter, according to the Washington Post. Harold Jellicoe Percival, 99, died Oct. 25 at a nursing home in Northwest England. Percival was single and did not have children or surviving friends and family. A funeral home placed an ad in the paper asking for military personnel to attend. The ad was then posted on Twitter, prompting veterans, civilians and soldiers to attend the funeral. Many who could not fit in the chapel stood outside in the rain to pay respect.

Obamacare changes for students explained School-provided health insurance will change little with launch of exchanges ELLIOT LAM Daily Titan
DUI cases skewed by machines ALLY FITZGERALD Hundreds of Orange County driving under the inf luence cases are in question after a laboratory error that led to inaccurate blood alcohol level readings, according to ABC7. The error occurred because a machine used in testing was recalibrated without an appropriate decimal point. The calibration error skewed one of the machines by .003 percentage points, enough to push some drivers’ results above the legal limit of .08. OC Crime Lab said only about 200 individuals will actually see any change in their blood alcohol reading.
Last month, health insurance exchanges opened nationwide, following the requirements of the 2010 Affordable Care Act. Most states will be relying on the federal insurance exchange at HealthCare.gov. Some states, including California, have created their own exchanges, such as CoveredCA.com. The 2010 act, popularly referred to as “Obamacare,” will require Americans to register for health care or face a penalty. Students who are not covered under their parents’ health insurance plan and do not have an insurance plan of their own by Jan. 1 may face a penalty of $95 or 1 percent of their income. Exemptions apply to those who make less than $9,750 each year, those who would have to pay more than 8 percent of their income towards health insurance and those who are undocumented. Student health care plans through Cal State Fullerton have changed little due to the opening of the state health exchange on Oct. 1. Many of the Obamacare changes had already gone into effect last fall. Beginning Jan. 1, student insurers will no longer impose exclusions on students younger than

19 who have a pre-existing condition, according to the American College Health Association. Currently, this restriction against not covering students with pre-existing conditions applies only if a student is under 19 years of age. However, under the CSUF student plan, Anthem Blue Cross will not cover preexisting conditions during the first six months of a student’s coverage unless he or she had been insured with “creditable coverage” in the six months preceding the beginning of their plan. Final regulations for student health insurance plans were required to begin on July 1, 2012, according to the American College Health Association. Under these regulations, student insurance plans for the 2012-2013 school year had to reflect policy changes set forth in the Affordable Care Act. An analysis reveals that the insurance plan offered to CSUF students by Anthem Blue Cross had made several revisions to its policy over the last five years. The changes overall show that coverage had gradually expanded to reduce the amount of copayments students would have to make, though some exclusions were added. Changes implemented in the fall of 2012 People can purchase coverage for their dependent children who are under 26 years of age; the
limit had been 19 years in 2011. The Benefit Year Maximum, the most Anthem Blue Cross will pay toward student medical expenses, increased from $100,000 to $500,000. Copayments, the portion of medical expenses the insured are responsible for paying, have been reduced from 50 percent to 20 percent when students seek emergency care at an out-of-network health care provider. Facility-based care for mental health, including nervous disorders, is now covered at 30 days per benefit year, where it had previously been $175 per day. Preventive care services, which include physical exams, screenings, tests and immunizations, no longer have a copay. Physical exams had previously included a copayment of $30, and adult preventive screenings had a copayment of 20 percent. There is no longer a limit to the amount Anthem Blue Cross will pay towards durable medical equipment. Previously, such equipment would be covered up to $5,000 per benefit year. Chronic pain, a condition that had been excluded from coverage in the last five years, is now covered.
no longer covered, and that took effect in 2011. Smoking cessation, stress management, alcohol management and other self-help programs are now 40 percent off, where it had been 30 percent in 2012. Until 2009, expenses incurred for injuries suffered while under the influence of alcohol, and any self-inflicted injuries had not been covered. It remains unclear whether more exclusions were added as a result of the Affordable Care Act, or whether Anthem Blue Cross had planned on the exclusions in an attempt to save costs.
Student Health Center Under the 2008-2009 insurance plan, students were required to go to the Student Health and Counseling Center before seeking treatment at another provider. Care provided outside the SHCC would only be covered if the SHCC determined it was necessary and coordinated a referral. That requirement was amended in the following year. The current policy “strongly encourages” students to utilize the SHCC and warns that obtaining care off campus does not guarantee that the provider is in network, even if it was a referral from the SHCC.
Exclusions and Limitations However, more exclusions and limitations have been added since 2010. Services rendered by nonlicensed health care providers, surrogate mother services and food and dietary supplements are VISIT US AT: DAILYTITAN.COM/NEWS

Science of the Impossible Controlling roaches raises questions about insect cruelty
GUSTAVO VARGAS For the Daily Titan
Most of us are all too familiar with those pesky little cockroaches that feed off leftover food crumbs, inhabit kitchen cabinets and for some of us, manifest themselves into our nightmares. Most people, I hope, are aware of the decline of interest in science today among the younger generations. It is true that today’s children don’t dream of going to the moon anymore. Instead, a majority of them focus their interests elsewhere on things such as social media and pop culture. Backyard Brains is a company dedicated to bringing neuroscience to the general public so that interest in it might spark a lifelong pursuit. On a larger scale, the company aims to start a “neuro-revolution” so that the future can be filled with neuroscientists who will help cure diseases. Co-founder Greg Gage said it is crucial the younger generations take a special interest in neuroscience because it holds the key to finding cures for the many neurological disorders that we have trouble understanding today. Recently, Backyard Brains unveiled a new product marketed as “The Roboroach.” The device is an “electronic backpack” that fits onto a cockroach, allowing the user to wirelessly control the left/right movements of the roach through micro stimulation of the antenna nerves for a brief amount of time. To install the device onto a cockroach, the user has to perform brief surgery. The cockroach is to be placed in icy cold water to anesthetize it. Sandpaper is used to remove the waxy coating on the shell of the insect’s head. Afterwards, an electrode connector and electrodes are glued on the insect’s body. A needle is used to poke a hole in their thorax in order to put a wire through it. Their antennae are also cut to insert new electrodes. This is Backyard Brains’ simple do-it-yourself method to something that might be a bit too complicated otherwise.
However, many are opposed to the procedure, or “surgery,” necessary to use such products on insects. Jonathan Balcombe, an animal behavior scientist at the Humane Society University in Washington, D.C., criticized the company’s defense that the anesthesia prevents the insects from feeling pain. “If it was discovered that a teacher was having students use magnifying glasses to burn ants and then look at their tissue, how would people react,” Balcombe said. Michael Allen, a philosophy professor at Queen’s University, said the product “encourages amateurs to operate invasively on living organisms” and “encourages thinking of complex living organisms as mere machines or tools.” Other critics said the product “teaches kids to be psychopaths.” On the other hand, Backyard Brains claimed the product is designed solely for the purpose of inspiring children to become interested in this type of science. It said the products are humane and do no harm to the cockroach. According to the company’s website, “our experiments are not philosophically perfect and without controversy; however, we believe the benefits outweigh the cost due to the inaccessibility of neuroscience in our current age.” The company is aware of the negative reactions the public might have towards the procedures it advocates, but it believes the procedures are all with good intentions. The big question is whether or not cockroaches, or any insect for that matter, actually feel pain. Although the verdict is still up in the air, the company assumes insects do. Therefore, it requires that test subjects are anesthetized. The company, although it targets a younger generation, defends the criticisms by describing its product as a scientific instrument, not a toy. I, for one, am a bit conflicted. I can see both sides of the criticisms. I do not like the idea of experimenting on helpless insects or animals, but at the same time how are we to find answers without actually applying the theories. So long as all the right precautions are taken and with the sincerest intent, I believe such products can be in the right. With the utmost respect, for better or worse, whether it was Thomas Edison electrocuting an elephant, or Marie Curie dying because of her exposure to radiation, scientists have to take risks moving forward and it is the only path toward discovery.

Green Piece Overpopulation is the culprit ALEX GROVES
For the Daily Titan
One of the unfortunate realities associated with environmental issues—such as climate change and increasing scarcity—is that there are simply more people than there ever were before. It’s something that I’ve mentioned before in this column and something I will likely mention again, but I want to talk more in depth about this particular problem. The fact is, we are seeing massive population spikes in many industrializing nations throughout the globe. In places like India and Nigeria, population increases are commonplace for very different reasons. In Nigeria, which is a nation not much larger than the state of Texas, the size of the population is predicted to rival that of China by the year 2050. This is in part due to the fact that while other nations throughout the world place importance on oral contraceptives and intrauterine devices, family plan-
ning is of less importance in the West African nation. However, it wasn’t always that way. Family planning was once a priority in Nigeria and other nations located within the African continent, but things began to change in the wake of the AIDS epidemic. Resources were diverted from family planning initiatives to efforts to curb the deadly disease. The end result was higher population sizes across Africa. In fact, the number of people living in Africa is set to quadruple before the end of the century. India is also growing rapidly as a result of its patriarchal culture. The nation has grown by 350 million people within a period of 20 years and is expected to overtake China by 2025 with its growth rate of approximately 1.5 percent per year. While the increase in population in Nigeria is mostly the result of a decreased emphasis on family planning materials, the population growth seen in India is the result of societal and cultural factors. Families in India often aspire
to have sons rather than daughters, as men are often viewed as wage earners and the individuals who will be able to take care of their parents in old age. Indian families will try multiple times to have children until they can have a boy. The result is an astoundingly high population growth. But to single out places like India and Nigeria is somewhat unfair. Population is increasing in many places throughout the globe for a number of different reasons, all of which are the direct result of the personal choices of individuals. That’s why increasing population is hardly ever mentioned as the main culprit in issues like global climate change and
“In Nigeria ... the size of the population is predicted to rival that of China by the year 2050.”
the limited availability of resources. It’s easy to point to commerce and regulation and say that we need to change those things, because it may be possible to fix them over some period of time. However, it’s nearly impossible to tell people how many children they can have or how they should plan their families because their cultural values will almost always prevail against changing world conditions. But conditions are changing, and they are changing quickly. We’ve seen increases in fossil fuel consumption—one of the leading factors in global warming—rise hand in hand with population increases. We know that highly populated places like China and India are going to overtake the United States with their fossil fuel production within the middle of the century. Frankly, it’s not like anyone can tell the citizens of these nations that they can’t have cars and can’t have nice things when the rest of the world has been enjoying such luxuries for a number of years. It’s not as though anybody can tell the farmer encroaching upon forest lands that he can’t knock down trees and set up farmland when he has a family to support, nor can anybody prevent a new family from purchasing a house in an area that was once wildlands. Growth happens, growth continues and growth is almost unstoppable. So then what do we do? What’s the right choice for society when our continued perseverance and development is the problem? The best thing nations across the globe can do is push for a shift in their own culture, which may be a very difficult thing to achieve. Societies in industrializing nations across the globe need to push for an emphasis on family planning and smart decision making. We won’t see real change until that’s realized.
Remember the Titans? The university should reinstate its football team despite the costs BRIAN CHESTER Daily Titan
Believe it or not, Cal State Fullerton was once a kickoff-returning, yard-rushing, touchdown-scoring university. It began in 1970, when CSUF played its first inaugural football season at the Angel Stadium of Anaheim. By the start of the 1972 season, the Titans moved their home games to the Santa Ana Bowl. In 1979, the team relocated again to a temporary oncampus stadium, followed by another move to Cerritos College in 1983. In their 23 seasons of football, the Titans made it to the Mercy Bowl in 1971 and the California Bowl in 1983. As a result, Titan football sent 22 alumni to careers in the National Football League. But the football program began to have financial problems in the late 1980s, and it was suspended by former CSUF President Milton A. Gordon in 1992. CSUF never reinstated the program, and the school has been without a football team for over 20 years. The lack of a football team has left students feeling dissatisfied and incomplete. In 1995, Fullerton Students Athletic Advisory Committee asked the student body if they supported the reinstatement of Titan football, receiving a strong 89 percent favorability. Since then, students have
been petitioning to bring a football team back to CSUF. A committee of football enthusiasts are working to revive the sport at CSUF through a lobbying website called “Bring Back Titan Football.” Over 2,000 signatures fill an online petition which began in 2007, while T-shirts showing support for Titan football can be purchased and proudly shown off. The site also displays two CSUF football alumni who helped coach the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII, emphasizing the importance of a football program which once stood strong at this school. Although the university houses a host of other prestigious sports, the absence of a football team undoubtedly leaves a hole in the heart of the school’s collegiate pride. In 2013, there is no excuse not to stamp the Titan name back into the competitive world of NCAA football. It certainly may have put a damper on school spirit when CSUF’s home arena was constantly changing, but this factor should not be an issue today. When Titan Stadium was created in 1992, it was originally designed to house the school’s football team. Although currently used for soccer, now is the perfect opportunity to take advantage of the 10,000-seat stadium and exercise its intended purpose. A football team could help boost the university’s profits through ticket sales, bringing in both students and the surrounding community to cheer
on their local team. Not only would a football team be beneficial to the school, but it would also assist athletes striving to secure a spot in the professional league. The NFL requires that athlets who declare for the NFL draft be out of high school for at least three years before becoming eligible. The rule does not dictate that a player must attend college, but almost all players entering into the NFL draft have played college football. With this rule in place, high school players are often looking for a prominent college to help refine their football skills before entering the NFL draft.
Instead of sitting around for three years after high school, CSUF should make itself available to develop these players into better all-around athletes. By making a name for itself as a major football program, the university could add to its already prominent reputation as a nationally accredited university. Let’s face it, the nearest football team resides at Fullerton Community College, a campus CSUF nearly triples in size. The Titans have won 13 national championships in eight different sports. It’s time to tackle this problem and send football running back to the list.

Mental toughness tested in the mud Tough Mudder event claims to be the most challenging obstacle course RILEY TANNER Daily Titan
The first 10,000-volt shock of electricity floored me as I hurdled over the body of a fallen comrade. As I attempted to get my feet under me, I was again slammed face-first into the mud as my back came into contact with another heavily charged wire. “This poor guy is getting punished,” the announcer said loudly through the speakers. Numb from aftershock, I barely heard the words as I received another debilitating zap to the base of my spinal column. The remainder of my way through the final obstacle, aptly named electroshock therapy, was a blur of white-hot pain. I sprawled, stumbled and staggered my way through a forest of electrically charged wires, finally arriving at the free beer waiting for me at the finish line.

In order to receive donations, BOL focuses on its success stories. One of those stories is Cunningham’s most memorable rescue dog, Happy. Happy, an Australian cattle shepherd mix, was about 8 years old, overweight and in poor health when his original family decided they couldn’t keep him anymore. Cunningham was told that Happy had another family to go to, but later found out the dog was brought to a shelter. “She was probably going to be euthanized … it was fate,” Cunningham said. After many years without a dog to officially call her own, Cunningham recently adopted her first dog from BOL, a border collie named Annie. Cunningham said she believes Annie has made her family, which includes her husband and daughter, complete. “I remember what a difference it makes to have a dog … someone that’s going to love you no matter what,” Cunningham said. Cunningham and her family are just one of many families who feel more complete by adopting a rescue dog from BOL. After looking through the PetFinder website one night in search of a dog to get for her children, Lorie Bullard, who lives in Costa Mesa, stumbled upon BOL. “I knew that if I ever did get a dog it would be one that desperately needed a home, but it had to be proven that it could be safe around my children,” Bullard said. She decided to adopt her family’s first dog from the organization, a shiba inu and American Eskimo mix named Cody. Bullard revisited BOL to adopt more dogs. She adopted a miniature pinscher and chihuahua mix named Dax, then she adopted, a chihuahua named Mini. “I love that they rescue from shelters and place their dogs in home before adopting them out,” Bullard said. “I think that’s why we fostered two.” The organization hosts events to show off the dogs it has available to foster and adopt. From selection, training and matching the dog with the most fitting family, the entire adoption process is managed by BOL, Cunningham said. BOL has a staff of 12 volunteers and enlists the help of 400 volunters to assist with the adoption process, events and taking care of the dogs. Alex Meiser, the media and community relations director for BOL, is one of the staff volunteers. Meiser has seen the best and worst of neglected dogs who are rescued by BOL.
Tough Mudder, a mud run event where participants go through up to 25 obstacle courses designed to test participants both physically and mentally, is the brainchild of former British counter-terrorism agent Will Dean. Bored with the repetitive nature of marathons, triathlons and other endurance activities, he idealized a large track frequented with obstacle courses to keep things interesting. Dean’s organization builds these courses 10-12 miles long, purposefully including hills and man-made disruptions. The entire body is subjected to a host of tribulations: hill climbs over unsure footing, crawling under and through muddy barbed wire, distance running and mandatory calisthenics, among others. “I started running and working out,” Kevin Daniels, 50, a former professional surfer said. “But as much training as I did, it wasn’t enough.” Daniels has two fractures in his L5 vertebra, bad knees and underwent an emergency root ca-
nal the day after completing the course. The self-employed creative advertiser demonstrated the mental fortitude required by the event. At one point, he carried my 6 foot, 175 pound frame firemanstyle on his broken back through the required distance during the Warrior Carry obstacle. Tough Mudder is a sponsor of the Wounded Warrior Project, raising $500,000 in charity within its inaugural year of 2010. Currently, the event has generated over $6.2 million toward assisting those afflicted by the tragedies of war. The event can cost anywhere from $89 to $185 depending on the date of registration. Despite the heavy cost, the appeal of supporting, and often running alongside, our American soldiers often outweighs the financial burdens for those signing up. Amputees and those with prosthetic limbs are allowed to compete as well. Teams have even been seen using a human-chain system to
lower a fully wheelchair bound teammate down an exceptionally steep decline. “You don’t just race and go home, you stay for a full experience,” said Kristin Daniels, the regional western marketing director for Heineken USA. “I think it’s worth the investment, even for poor college kids.” After the event, everyone was ecstatic, wearing their newly garnered bright orange headbands—the only clean clothing in sight—and swapping tales of their experience. While the underlying nature of this event is nothing to joke about, the owners and operators did have a bit of fun coming up with the names of some of the hurdles within the course. The Arctic Enema requires participants to submerge themselves in a combination of icewater and antifreeze, swimming under and through log barriers. Lugging a wooden pallet weighed down by sandbags sounds like stereotypically manly work, but the Drag Queen obstacle is a misnomer in that regard.
Personally, I was a big fan of weighted running; carrying logs while traversing terrain was somewhat familiar during Hold Your Wood. Despite a mere three years of operation under its belt, over 1 million people have contributed to the Wounded Warrior Project through this event.
Tough Mudder has also gone international, and is now hosting events in Korea, the United Kingdom and Australia. While the demands of this journey left me bloody, bruised and breathless, I will absolutely return to race again. And yes, you do sign a death waiver beforehand.

CSUF officer Fonner receives award Fonner preformed CPR and rescued a man who had overdosed on drugs TAMEEM SERAJ Daily Titan
Officer Chauncey Fonner may only be in his fifth year with the Cal State Fullerton University Police, but has already proven to be a hero dedicated to serving and protecting his community. The 27-year-old CSUF alumnus was honored last June with the Lifesaving Award for his heroic actions. On a sunny Saturday afternoon, Fonner was patrolling the surrounding area of CSUF. But at 4:30 p.m. on May 26, 2012, he got an emergency call to respond to a child who was not breathing. Fonner raced down Commonwealth Ave. toward 2604 East Chapman Ave. and quickly parked his squad car outside of a salmon-colored house with turquoise trim windows. He ran toward the rusted side of a metal gate on the right of the house where he was being flagged down. Instead of a child, Fonner had found a man around the age of 30 who had overdosed on oxycodone. The man laid unconscious in front of him. He quickly reacted by removing the CPR mask from

his patrol kit and successfully resuscitated the man back to consciousness. Fonner waited by his side until help arrived. “When I arrived he was unconscious, not breathing and I just resorted to my training and performed CPR and was able to revive the individual and keep him conscious until Fullerton Fire Department arrived,” Fonner said. “This was the first person I’ve physically had to go hands on with in an attempt to revive.” Fonner was recognized for his heroism and honored with the Lifesaving Award on June 9, 2012 by the Fullerton Police Department along with the Titan Excellence Award from CSUF. “An instance like that where an officer saves someone’s life, that deserves recognition. It’s a huge thing that changes not only the other person’s life but the officer’s life,” Capt. John Brockie of University Police said. Fonner remains humble about the award, which sits in his house unhanged along with his degree. Fonner said he was just doing his job to help people. “I couldn’t care less for the recognition of the award. I signed up to help people, to be a problem solver and to help those who are unable to help themselves,” Fonner said.
“I’m not one to boast about my achievements in life.” Fonner did not consider becoming a police officer until his senior year of college. He studied criminal justice with an emphasis on cultural diversity and had plans to attend law school. Fonner said he met many lawyers who were burnt out working 80 hours a week and decided that life wasn’t for him. He graduated cum laude in 2008. Now he is working on a master’s degree in public administration. “He is confident. He knows the different statutes, the state statutes and the campus specific rules. He is willing to learn,” Brockie said. “Things are ever-changing in the police world, laws change every year. He is a student both on the job and off the job and he is very intelligent.” Communication skills are one trait Fonner has used to help him excel as an officer. He prides himself on his people skills, whether he is speaking with a staff member of CSUF or a gang member. “With his personable skills he can talk to a gang member and a faculty member the same way, it’s always with respect but businesslike. He knows how to get things out of people and that’s a treat for police officers,” Lt. Scot Willey
of University Police said. “Our officers are really well versed with talking to everybody but Officer Fonner is probably one of the best at that.” Fonner stays vigilant while on patrol, keeping his head on a swivel and his eyes moving behind his black Oakley sunglasses. He rolls the windows down
to listen for any calls for help and does not listen to music to avoid potential distractions. He often works long 12-hour shifts and said he stays focused by keeping hydrated and eating healthy snacks such as fruit or Clif Bars. Fonner said he has a 30-year plan to stay in the police department.

Titans headed to Big West final Clutch saves by Pulliam move CSUF into Big West final against Riverside VINCENT LA ROSA Daily Titan
The Cal State Fullerton women’s soccer advanced to the Big West Tournament final Thursday night by beating No. 1 seed Cal Poly San Luis Obispo 4-3 in a shootout after the two teams were deadlocked in a 1-1 tie following 110 minutes of play. Titan backup goalkeeper Katie Pulliam, a specialist on stopping penalty kicks, made two huge saves in the shootout after replacing starting goalkeeper Lindsey Maricic following the second overtime period. Despite being the No. 4 and lowest seed in the Big West Tournament, CSUF had the advantage of playing at home in their semifinal match with the Mustangs, as Titan Stadium played host to the 2013 tournament. Following an overtime thriller in the tournament’s first semifinal that saw UC Riverside defeat UC Irvine in overtime, the Titans and Mustangs did not disappoint in their later matchup of Big West Tournament play. From the opening whistle, it was the regular season Big West champion Mustangs dictating the tempo of the match with extended spells in control of the ball on offense. While CSUF had a few opportunities to capitalize on Mustang mistakes, the Titans had trouble finding their rhythm early and were immediately put on the backfoot after a controversial penalty call by the referee in the 25th minute of play. Breaking down the CSUF left side, Mustang midfielder Sara Lancaster sped free of Titan defender Jazzmin Mancilla into the CSUF penalty area. Just 10 yards from goal, what appeared to be a miraculous slide tackle by defender Kellie Bohner to deny Lancaster a goal-scoring opportunity was adjudged to be a foul by the match referee in a controversial ruling. After some confusion, the official made it clear he was pointing to the penalty spot and not making the signal for a goal kick. After the brief delay, Lancaster would coolly finish her penalty to the right side of the net, putting the Mustangs up 1-0. Having lost to Cal Poly SLO
by a penalty and a 1-0 score in their only meeting of the 2013 season, CSUF found themselves in all too familiar territory. But despite being down, the Titans appeared energized after the goal. Controlling the middle of the pitch, CSUF answered the Mustang goal with one of their own in the 37th. Senior forward Nikki McCants collected a looping pass between two Mustang defenders and finished to the far post from just inside 18 yards to tie up the match at one goal apiece. “My mindset was that we need a goal,” said McCants of her mindset when coming into the match down a goal. “I was confident. It was a great ball by Lauren Stupin and I got a touch and placed it far post, what I am suppose to do, so it was good.” Buoyed by the goal, the Titans took much of the initiative throughout the rest of the match to find the game-winner, but despite 15 total shots throughout the regulation and overtime periods, the two teams remained knotted at a 1-1 mark. “A match like this really brings out a ton of emotions,” Head Coach Demian Brown said. “Obviously giving up the goal the way that we did, another PK (penalty kick) to Cal Poly, was kind of hard to take. I’m very happy obviously for how the women responded. To get the goal that we did was tremendous. To battle the way that we did through the second half and overtime has become kind of the way that we do things. Playing in overtime is nothing new for us.” In the shootout, Pulliam, who had been warming up midway through the second overtime period, took the place of Maricic in the Titan net. And just like she had a year prior in a Big West semifinal, Pulliam was spectacular, saving the Mustangs’ first and last shot in the shootout to give the Titans a 4-3 advantage and victory, “It’s hard to stop a PK. It’s pretty much a 50-50 chance, so you just got to do your best,” Pulliam said. “I had confidence after I got the first one but it was still nerve racking each one after that.” The Titans move on to the Big West final to face the No. 3 seed UCR Highlanders at Titan Stadium. The winner of the match will gain an automatic berth into the NCA A Tournament to be held starting Nov. 15th.

CSUF falls to Coyotes Titans lose Olivier to injury in tough opening loss to visiting S. Dakota TAMEEM SERAJ Daily Titan
Despite winning the second half, the Cal State Fullerton women’s basketball team could not overcome their early scoring struggles and fell to the South Dakota Coyotes 66-57 on Friday night. Head Coach Daron Park started his tenure at CSUF in the loss column, but insisted that his new system will take some time for the Titans to implement. The Titans started the match hesitant and thus shot 1-14 from the field in the first 12 minutes of play. Fullerton tried moving the ball around and using up the shot clock but only found contested shots and started to hear the impatience of the crowd urging them to be more aggressive on the offensive end. Park wants the team to drive the lane and dominate on the inside. “We have to get better at finishing at the rim, we have to get better at converting defense into offense,” Park said of taking advantage of turnovers.
Iwuoha and Miles had strong performances off of the bench with 14 and 12 points, respectively. Iwuoha added a team high seven rebounds while Miles had team highs in both assists and steals with three of each in the game. Iwuoha and Miles almost equaled the production of the starters in scoring by themselves with the starters putting up 27 points and the duo impressively scoring 26 off the bench. “Whatever we need to do for the team we’re ready to do. If that’s coming off the bench, then we’re ready to accept that role,” Iwuoha said. One big factor of the starters struggling to score was the loss of senior forward Mya Olivier. Olivier went down with a knee injury with 6:44 left to play. The crowd went silent as she layed on the court clutching her right knee while her agonized cries could be heard echoing through Titan Gym by the worried fans in attendance. Olivier was carried off the f loor without being able to put any pressure on her right knee. “She’s in a lot of pain right
now, she’s on crutches. I haven’t had a chance to get with our trainer and our doctors to get a full update,” Park said. “She’s in good spirits but we’ll probably know more in the next 24 hours.” If Olivier is forced to sit out an extended amount of time, the Titans would be missing a Big West first team selection from last season who averaged 12.7 points per game and 6.3 rebounds per game in the 2012-2013 season. Long-term injuries are nothing new for Olivier, who played only eight games during her true sophomore season before an injury derailed her season. Olivier also missed her entire junior season in high school due to a leg injury. Olivier’s teammates wanted to rally for her but came up just short in their comeback bid. “Originally I was devastated but I wanted to eventually get the win for her,” Iwuoha said. “We still stayed in the game and tried our hardest to get the win.” The Titans will look to get their first win of the young 2013 season on Friday night when they will travel up to Santa Clara University to take on the Broncos.
Titans stomp Bobcats in opener CSUF uses big game from Alex Harris to defeat Montana State ABRAHAM JAUREGUI Daily Titan
“Big Sky Country” was no match for the Cal State Fullerton’s men’s basketball team, as they kicked off the 2013-14 season with a win by handily defeating Montana State 84-55 on Saturday afternoon in Bozeman. The Titans broke a losing streak of seven consecutive losses for season openers on the road and got Dedrique Taylor his first win as the Titans’ head coach. From the start, the Titans played aggressively on both sides of the ball and virtually controlled the match from the onset. They took the lead four minutes into the game and never looked back. The Titans fired on all cylinders, shooting an outstanding 53.6 (30-56) percent from the field and an extremely efficient 50 (9-18) percent from three-point land. VISIT US AT: DAILYTITAN.COM/SPORTS
“I thought a couple of times off of turnovers we settled for jump shots when we are trying to teach a ‘to the rim’ mentality.” CSUF forced 25 turnovers on defense in the match, but failed to convert by only scoring 17 points as a result of those turnovers. The Titans started to move their offense into the paint towards the end of the first half and got their second field goal 12:34 into the match from a layup by junior forward Kathleen Iwuoha. Unfortunately by that point in the match the Coyotes had opened up a 23-7 lead and would not look back at any point in the game. The Titans went into halftime down 37-22 and searching for answers to the tough Coyotes defense. Iwuoha kept CSUF afloat with her 10 points and four rebounds in the first 20 minutes of play. CSUF took some positives from the game, winning the second half by outscoring South Dakota 35-29, but it wasn’t enough to overcome their 15 point deficit. “In the second half we were ready to play and compete and get after it,” Chantae Miles, junior guard, said.
On the defensive end, Taylor backed up his mantra for a tough defensive team, as they held the Bobcats to a 34 percent field goal percentage off of 16-47 shooting. CSUF held Montana State to only 2-20 shooting from three point territory. Four out of five starters scored in double figures and were led by returning starter, junior guard Alex Harris. Harris dropped in 20 points on 8-13 shooting, grabbed four rebounds, dished two assists and forced two steals. Taylor played Harris a game-high 34 minutes as he provided a +30 mark for the Titans when on the court. Starting senior guard Michael Williams scored 14 points, grabbed five rebounds, dished out two assists and picked off three steals on the day. Starting senior forward Marquis Horne scored 13 points in the game, including perfect 3-3 shooting from beyond the arc. Starting sophomore guard Jared Brandon added 10 points for the Titans.
Junior forward Steve McClellan battled with early foul trouble against the aggressive Bobcats offense, McClellan was the only starter not in double figures finishing with nine points, but he did lead the team in rebounds with six in 19 minutes of action. Off the bench, junior guard Josh Gentry provided a spark by scoring eight points for the Titans. He aggressively attacked the Bobcats’ swingmen by getting to the free throw line, where he shot a perfect 4-4 clip. With McClellan in early foul trouble, freshman forward Joe Boyd provided the interior presence, especially on the defensive side, while adding two points and five rebounds in 22 minutes off the bench. Freshmen Guard Ian Spruce and forward Floris Versteeg each converted a three-pointer to add to the win. Freshman guard Sheldon Blackwell scored two points off the bench, but came into the game looking to set up
his teammates as he dropped in a game-high four assists on 18 minutes of play. For the Bobcats, starting center Paul Egwuonwu shared team-high honors with forward Flavien Davis with 10 points each. Egwuonwu was effective for Montana State in the first half with his interior play, but early foul trouble sent him to the bench and the Titans soon pulled away. In the first half, the Bobcats were packing the inside paint and daring the Titans to make outside shots. The Titans made Montana State pay with great insideout ball movement and finding the open man on double teams. Harris took advantage of the Bobcats’ defensive scheme by getting past his man, finding his spots on the court, and pulling up and draining jump shots all game as the Titans won by 29 points. Next for the Titans is another road game as they will travel to take on Seattle University on Wednesday night at 7 p.m.

CSUF drops match late to UCR, ending season UCR clips Titans on late second-half rally, end season on rough note VINCENT LA ROSA
The Cal State Fullerton men’s soccer team ended 2013 on a low, losing a heartbreaker 3-2 at UC Riverside after giving up three unanswered goals in the second half and missing out on a playoff berth. Heading into Saturday final Big West match knotted in the standings at 10 points apiece, CSUF and UCR found themselves at the bottom of the Big West South Division. But with an extra spot in the Big West Tournament up for grabs, a win for either side meant they were headed to postseason play, while the loser’s season would be over. The Titans got off to a flying start in the match when junior midfielder Alex Cannas found the back of the Highlander net just two minutes and 37 seconds after the opening whistle. Capitalizing on a mistake in the Riverside back line, Cannas picked up a loose ball to the right side of the Highlander penalty area and finished from three yards to give the Titans an early lead. The goal was only Cannas’ second of the season, coming off the Titans’ first shot in the game. Following the opening goal, the Titans put a considerable amount of pressure on UCR, attempting 10 shots compared to the Highlanders’ three shots in the match’s opening 45 minutes. The Titans also held a 2-0 advantage in corner kicks. Unfortunatley, the Titans’ superiority on offense did not translate into more goals, however, as their lead remained at
just one at halftime. To start the second half, the Titans were at it again. This time it took CSUF a little over three minutes to grab a second score. Junior midfielder Garrett Losee was the recipient of a pinpoint pass from defender Steven Ortiz, and he deposited his team-high fourth goal of the season into the Highlanders’ net. Cannas would also be awarded an assist on the goal for his third point of the game. Up 2-0, it appeared the Titans had everything going for them until Highlander forward Ivan Garcia finished from inside the CSUF penalty area to cut the Titans’ lead in half in the 59th minute. It was all downhill for the Titans from there, as the momentum of the match had clearly turned in favor of the Highlanders. Riverside sophomore Eric Gonzalez leveled the match at two with a crucial goal in the 68th minute following a flowing movement combining with midfielders Aaron Long and Romario Lomeli. A draw would have been enough to propel the Highlanders past the Titans and into the Big West Tournament on goal differential despite the two sides’ identical records. Although for good measure, UCR defender Philipp Dominique scored following a Highlander corner in the 85th minute. Down by one and aware only two goals in five minutes would salvage their season, the deflated Titans played out the match without registering a shot despite finishing the match with a 17-13 shot advantage. Titan senior goalkeeper Bryan Escalante made five saves in the match in addition to giving up the three goals.
However, his performance was bested by UCR goalkeeper Ashkan Khosravi’s six saves. The Highlanders move on to face the North Division’s No. 2 seed, UC Davis, in the first round of the Big West Tournament on Tuesday. For the Titans, their disappointing 2013 ends on a sour note of six matches without a win, including five straight losses. Moreover, the Titans will have to work on closing out opponets, as it makes the loss sting even more by having the 2-0 lead. CSUF finished the season with a 6-11-1 overall record and a 3-6-1 record in Big West play. The match marked the last for five seniors, including Escalante, defender Jaime Cano, midfielder Ritchie Gonzalez, midfielder Jordan Wolff and goalkeeper Zach Ruggieri. On the bright side for the Titans, they bring back key players for next year including junior mid-fielder Garrett Lossee, sophomore forward Colin Okirie, and junior mid-fielder Ian Ramos. Lossee finished an impressive first year with CSUF being the co-goal scoring leader on the team with 17 while Okirie was tied for the lead in assists with 4.
