Rally Against Hate targets rape culture

The annual event allows an opportunity to share encounters with hate ANDRES MARTINEZ Daily Titan

Students from all over the globe, including New Zealand and Chile, visited the Cooper Center to study the bones of the center’s mascot, Waldo the walrus.

Bones of a forgotten past

Students study fossils and artifacts from Orange County at the Cooper Center ADREANA YOUNG Daily Titan

Meredith Rivin opened the door to the back warehouse and revealed a treasure trove of untouched fossils. The spine of a long-dead whale was sprawled across the

poorly lit warehouse f loor. Boxes filled with fossils from all types of creatures stuffed the room. “Everything in here is a fossil,” said Rivin, associate curator of paleontology at the Cooper Center. “I will never even get close to making a dent in it.”

Researchers examine fossils collected from around Orange County.

For four decades, Orange County has been stockpiling the bones and ancient artifacts found at construction sites throughout the county. In the 1970s, John Cooper, a Cal State Fullerton professor of geology, worked to get all the fossils and artifacts under one roof. This became the Cooper Center. Students, researchers and volunteers are able to study here. Cooper died in 2007. Now, the Cooper Center sits on a 3.5-acre parking lot containing three unmarked buildings. Two are full of preserved fossils and artifacts while the third is a lab where Rivin and her team work. The lab is small, filled with cabinets of artifacts, tables with bones laid out on them and microscopes shining under artificial light. All brought together to assist in the study of previously untouched ancient specimens. CSUF partners with the Cooper Center, allowing students to study the four decades worth of fossils and human artifacts such as baskets, shell necklaces and other

trinkets detailing the human history of Orange County. However, students from all over Orange County are allowed to study the bones and artifacts at the Cooper Center. However, they must receive permission from the curators of the Cooper Center departments. On a table inside of the small, temperature controlled lab, the bones of a walrus, affectionately dubbed Waldo, were laid out for Bobby Boessenecker, a graduate student studying in New Zealand, and Isaac Magallanes, an undergraduate geology major at CSUF, to study. “I’ve always seen (Waldo) in the cabinets,” Magallanes said of the walrus’ bones. “But now that we have him out, it’s really, really big.” In another room of the lab, more students research the bones of birds that died long ago to study their migration pattern, evolution and more. Many of the bones being studied at the Cooper Center have only ever been observed during excavation.

In 2006, two Cal State Fullerton students perceived as a lesbian couple were attacked by a male student in downtown Fullerton. Since then, students have taken to the Quad every year to participate in the Rally Against Hate. Hosted by the Association for InterCultural Awareness (AICA), the Tuesday rally targeted rape culture. The annual rally has a primary purpose to generate a sense of awareness and to promote advocacy by giving students an opportunity to share their stories of encounters with discrimination and violence, said Russell Nelson, AICA administrative chair. Nelson said he wanted students to really change their minds about what rape culture is and how we are contributing to it in small ways. He said people like Ariel Castro, who captured three Cleveland women and kept them captive for years, are only a part of the problem. “Putting that person in jail won’t solve anything. It’s about making small adjustments in your life as an individual and spreading that sense of awareness so all these different microaggressions can be turned into something more positive, that’s where the problem exists, it’s not about those individuals,” Nelson said. On a “wall of hate,” students shared stories of being discriminated against. A “wall of hope” was erected to spread

awareness, and to give hope to people that have been discriminated against or to make a pledge to stand up and not allow discrimination. Kelsey Brewer, 19, political science major and volunteer for the Lobby Corps, said Rally Against Hate is a great event that brings awareness to a lot of issues that exist on campus. Brewer’s favorite thing about the event was the exhibition of shirts that hung on clotheslines surrounding the rally. Her favorite one read, “I am Trayvon Martin.” “I just really connected with that because I am an African-American student and I have grown up in neighborhoods where you are judged on that, so I thought that was very powerful for me to see that there are other students that feel that same way,” Brewer said. She also said she is very passionate about the issue of rape culture because it is a serious problem that people are not aware of. Nick Ward, 19, a philosophy major, participated in the open mic session. He said he is Christian and wanted to apologize for the behavior of other Christians who have “hated on” people for so long. “I feel like there’s a lot of people that people have been hurt by, and unfortunately it’s been done in the name of Jesus or in the name of Christianity or God, and the fact is that I just don’t believe that my God is like that and I want to let people know that I am sorry for the things that we have done and for the things I have done,” Ward said.

Leaving those eight points off the board allowed for Seattle to build confidence and use their high-powered offense to catch up to the struggling Titans. Seattle shot a blistering 48 percent from beyond the arc (12-25) during the game, which not only brought them back into the game, but also kept them in front of CSUF in the closing minutes.

Cal State plans to expand palliative care program NEREIDA MORENO Daily Titan

The Cal State University Board of Trustees presented Gov. Jerry Brown with plans to expand the CSU Institute of Palliative Care model to other interested campuses within the system last week. Palliative care is a holistic, multidisciplinary approach to health care that includes the contribution of doctors, nurses, social workers and spiritual counselors. Cal State Los Angeles, San Francisco State and Chico State will adopt the institute’s model in 2014. “I would like to get our health department in some way connected to this because this is part of a larger redefinition of health care that will be absolutely crucial as we embrace more and more people and everybody gets older,” Brown said. Trustee Roberta Achtenberg and Cal State San Mar-

cos President Karen Haynes, Ph.D., launched the Institute for Palliative Care at San Marcos in 2012. It is the first statewide initiative in the country to focus on palliative care workforce development and community awareness, according to the CSU. “Since the CSU educates more students with health care degrees than all California colleges and universities combined, it makes sense for us to launch an institute for palliative care in the CSU,” Achtenberg said. Funded by the Archstone Foundation, California HealthCare Foundation and grant money, the institute is projected to be self-supporting within five years. “With the launch of the CSU institute for palliative care last September, the CSU stepped front and center, shaping the future of health care in our state and modeling for our nation,” Haynes said. “We are setting the stage for palliative care

education and further demonstrating the CSU’s academic excellence.” Haynes said the team’s goal is to alleviate and prevent patient suffering by addressing the physical, emotional and spiritual and social concerns that arise with serious or chronic illness. “It is not hospice care—it is an approach to health care that focuses on the needs of all patients whether they need shortterm, long-term or end-of-life care,” she said. Pallative care has been demonstrated to improve the quality of life for patients and their families and reduce health care system costs, Haynes said. Cal State San Marcos has partnered with both private and public companies, enabling the school to launch innovative projects and programs such as the professional science master’s, a biotechnology certificate program, and various schools of nursing, Achtenberg said.

Brian Fagan, Ph.D., shared with students stories from his career, including an African drought with malnourished children that inspired him to continue with his work.

Archaeologist tells tale of a long career Energetic lecture explains how a scientist ended up becoming a writer DANIEL OSTRIN

Daily Titan

Following a lecture earlier this week in Santa Ana, archaeologist Brian Fagan, Ph.D., addressed a crowd Wednesday at Cal State Fullerton with the story of his scientific origins and how he became a writer “by accident.” Fagan coached students on how to communicate scientific research efficiently to the rest of humankind. He shared intimate stories about moments in his career that would quench any scholar’s thirst for anthropology, archaeology and adventure. In the 1960s, Fagan traveled to Southern Africa to help assemble the short history of the landlocked country of Zambia, whose president shed tears when he was finally able to touch a physical archive of his country. He recalled a frightful tale of African drought and malnourished children, which ingrained in him a profound image that drove him to the point he finds himself at today. “I’ve had a very, very extraordinary career,” Fagan said. “I can have a moderately intelligent conversation with someone who is working in Mojave, someone who is working in Mexico, at Stonehenge or even at Patagonia.” Fagan’s lecture jumped from era to era, landmass to landmass, depicting the life of a traveling man with an assistive

intention for humanity. Fagan switched from the past to the present and shared his interview on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. A lesson that transpired after studying past cultures and contemporary societies is that we’re all homosapiens, Fagan said. Even with numerous differences, humans have the one fixed similarity of survival within race of humanity, as clearly observed in the diverse group of intellectuals in the audience. Fagan’s recent work and book examines the global issue of an agitated ocean that holds no allies. “The ‘attacking ocean’ has affected peoples in the prehistoric and historic past,” said Edward J. Knell, an assistant professor of anthropology. “It continues to affect people today.” After Typhoon Haiyan hit the Philippines, there was a great deal of concern amongst the CSUF anthropology department and lab, said Jere H. Lipps, Ph.D., director of the Cooper Center. As conventional as an opener could be, Fagan urged the students sitting alongside the contours of the walls in Titan Student Union Pavilion B to come fill any empty seats among their peers. And as unconventional as a closer could be, Fagan concluded his speech with the notion that like his cat, Atticus Catticus Cattamore Moose, humans worry about the day’s food in their own bowl. However, unlike Atticus, it is solely human capability and responsibility to record earthly events in order to secure the race and another day’s food.

Four marines were killed Wednesday in an accident during routine range maintenance at Camp Pendleton, according to the Orange County Register. The deadly accident occurred at 11 a.m. at the southernmost range on the base. Lt. Ryan Finnegan said the accident came during regularly scheduled maintenance of the Zulu impact area, where artillery, mortar and aerial bombs strike during training exercises. The names of those killed and the units they were assigned to were not immediately announced, pending notification of family. The cause of the accident is under investigation.

Health care numbers released ANDRES GARCIA Covered California, the state-run health exchange, enrolled 30,830 Californians at the end of its first month of service, according to the Orange County Register. Nationwide, about 100,000 people have enrolled in health plans. About 26,000 people enrolled using the federal website, HealthCare.gov. Enrollment of federally subsidized health plans in California is expected to increase by 500,000 to 700,000 during the six-month enrollment period, which ends on March 31, according to Covered California.

Jillian Perkinns, double majoring in kinesiology and ethnic studies, volunteered at the event. She decided to participate because she said she had been discriminated against for being a young black woman. She said she was discriminated against throughout elementary school, middle school and high school and people have told her racist jokes. “Just for me to have a voice in this type of environment, and I do see stuff still going on in Orange County, so just being able to put out my voice against this stuff, I feel like that would be an impact on this campus,” Perkinns said. Organizers prepared various chants and signs for participants. Instead of having a moment of silence, organizers planned a moment of noise to let the campus community know that they are not going to stand for

any negative behavior. Perkinns said she hopes students are more aware of what’s going on and that they step up if they see someone being discriminated against. Nelson said he hopes students take home a new sense of consciousness and realize that this issue is not as far away as some like to think.

Superstorm Sandy, Hurricane Katrina and the recent Typhoon Haiyan all have a common architect—an attacking ocean. Distinguished archaeologist and author of The Attacking Ocean, Brian Fagan, Ph.D., brought his lecture and book tour to the Old Orange County Courthouse in Santa Ana on Tuesday. “We are extraordinarily vulnerable,” Fagan said. “The issue is extreme weather events, such as hurricanes and cyclones, and the devastating damage they do to modern, urban, industrial society.” Steering away from sensationalism and doomsday predictions, Fagan instead described numerous historical amphibious assaults orchestrated by the sea and discussed the predictable loss and cost of continental catastrophes. Travel and trade expanded through waterways, meaning international metropolises are almost always associated with beachside property, Fagan said. With more extreme weather comes more property loss, stalled industry and anguished environmental refugees. He exampled the city of Dhaka, Bangladesh. In 1970,

the city had a population of 1.5 million, but by 2025, the population is predicted to reach upwards of 21 million. If a severe natural disaster struck the Bangladesh coast, its infrastructure could be destroyed, at a catastrophic price. If the ocean can kill tons of innocent people in a single event, then attempts must be made to study and stop it. Archaeological findings and mistakes of the past can inform current decisions on how to mitigate similar impacts, Edward J. Knell, Ph.D., assistant professor of anthropology, said. Fagan explored multiple international efforts in hindering an attacking ocean, from the Chinese building a wall protecting Shanghai to the English planting wetlands in Medmerry as a defense against the sea. The Dutch have been building sea barriers for nearly a thousand years, from seaweed walls to windmills that pump and displace water, and today they plan for events that may take centuries to come, Fagan said. Jere H. Lipps, Ph.D., director of the Cooper Center, referred to an article written in the Orange Coast magazine detailing how a 5-foot rise in sea level by the year 2100 would affect Orange County. California is already planning for the predicted rise, Lipps said. But it is unlikely that Cal State Fullerton will have

beachside property in the next couple centuries due to its high elevation. However, Lipps said other climatic factors might impact the university. Such issues could include torrential flooding from hills or increased dryness of soil and vegetation, creating a drought and vulnerability to fires. Another barrier against the frothing sea is the partnership between the Cooper Center and OC Parks. The collective effort by both institutions that organized and hosted the talk spread Fagan’s research, data, knowledge bank and awareness to the public. The Cooper Center, in affiliation with CSUF and other universities, aims to educate and establish the curatorial skills of collecting, recording and pre-

serving the artifacts of yesterday within the Orange County community, Meredith Rivin, associate curator of the Cooper Center, said. “Although Dr. Fagan claimed fatigue when shaking my hand before heading onto stage, by the end he had me thinking he was a geologist because he put on a show like a rockstar,” Nick Feenstra, 19, a mechanical engineering major said. Hardly able to stand still the entire time, Fagan concluded his talk with an excited audience and the solemn challenge for future generations to prevent, if not prepare for, “extreme weather events, rising sea levels and, above all, sea surges devastating intensely occupied coastal areas, where some of the largest cities f lourish.”

High school mascot insensitive to Arabs ADRIAN GARCIA Daily Titan

The Arabs of Coachella Valley High School will not score any touchdowns soon, as the school’s mascot is under fire for the racial insensitivity it promotes, according to CNN. The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee wrote a letter to the school, expressing their displeasure with the mascot’s name and appearance. The mascot “depicts a man with a large nose, heavy beard, and wearing a traditional head covering,” the committee said. The high school is being viewed as insensitive to other cultures, similarly to the Washington Redskins, the professional football team that has been criticized by many prominent Native American groups. Despite the history and attempted glorification of the people these mascots both portray, administrators need to be aware of the negative implications that may arise. The Arab has been the school’s mascot since the 1930s. Rich Ramirez, the president of the Coachella Valley High School Alumni Association, said the mascot is symbolic of the Middle Eastern influence in the area’s date farms. The date was introduced to the U.S. Department of Agriculture from Iraq and other Middle Eastern countries in the early 1900s, and orchards were established in the desert, Ramirez said. Now, the Coachella Valley produces approximately 95 percent of the country’s dates, Ramirez said. Date farming has been a sense of pride for the valley, highlighted by a National Date Festival that attracts over 300,000 people every February. Although the influence of the date and the Middle Eastern community is apparent in the valley, recent events should have influenced the administration to change the mascot, or at least its physical appearance. Since the events of Sept. 11, many Americans have a negative

perception of the Arabic culture, going as far as stereotyping most Arabs as terrorists. The New York City Commission on Human Rights released a report revealing that many were fearful that the discrimination against them has intensified since the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center. According to the report, 69 percent said they believed they were the victim of incidents of discrimination or harassment. Seventy-nine percent of those surveyed said they believed their lives have been negatively affected by the events of Sept. 11. Not only have Middle Eastern individuals been unfairly treated or discriminated against in recent years, but they have also been unable to freely practice their religious beliefs. The Pew Research Center reported at least 50 proposed mosques and Islamic community centers have encountered opposition from neighboring communities across the country. A vast majority of the mosques currently operating have been prone to hateful crimes that vary from vandalism to arson and gun violence. The dangerous attacks and discrimination against the Arab population has exposed the Islamophobia that has plagued the United States since the 2001 attacks. It is because of this Islamophobia that people are blind to the fact that they are unfairly spreading an offensive and stereotypical image of an Arab man. “When 9/11 came, we got terrible, terrible threats to change the name of our mascot,” Ramirez said. “We said no.” Receiving threats should have been enough for Ramirez and the community to acknowledge the issues with their mascot. However, their stubbornness only delayed the argument to a later date. The Arab population is already struggling with physical attacks from insensitive and racist individuals. The last thing they should have to worry about is a high school using a mascot caricature that pokes fun at their facial features.

Courtesy of Gerry Maceda The school’s mascot has a snarling face to instill fear into their opponents, but can be viewed as a negative stereotype toward Arabs.

Banking on sports costly ADRIAN GARCIA Daily Titan

As the sea of green surrounding Estadio Azteca broke into an “Ole! Ole! Ole! Mundial, Mundial!” chant, companies across Mexico breathed a sigh of relief. The Mexican national soccer team won the first leg of their Intercontinental World Cup playoff match against New Zealand, 5-1, en route to a potential berth. However, a berth in the 2014 World Cup in Brazil means a whole lot more to the country than just national pride. Rogelia Roa, sports marketing expert for DreaMatch, estimated that $600 million would be lost in television, merchandise, sponsorships and other revenue if the team fails to qualify. Six-hundred million dollars is a substantial amount of money to gamble on a sports team, even in a such grand stage as the World Cup. In a fragile economy such as Mexico’s, sports should a symbol of hope instead of a major part of their revenue for the year to come. This is especially true when thinking about unexpected twists that come with the sport. The Mexico national soccer team, also known as “El Tri,” was picked as an early favorite to win

the Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF) qualifying tournament and make its presence known in the World Cup. However, the team is now holding onto dear life to make the tournament. In order to qualify for the playoff match against New Zealand, Mexico had to either beat Costa Rica or hope for a United States win or draw versus Panama in the last match of the CONCACAF campaign. After a heartbreaking loss for Mexico to Costa Rica, a late goal by United States midfielder Graham Zusi tied the game against Panama, keeping El Tri’s playoff hopes alive. Headlines in every major Mexican media outlet thanked the United States men’s national team for their help, while bashing the Mexican squad and coaches for not representing their country with pride. This uncertainty is what makes sports dangerous—prematurely investing hundreds of millions of dollars on the anticipated success of a team. Mexican television stations Televisa and TV Azteca paid a reported $100 million for the rights to broadcast the tournament. In the United States, Univision, a Spanish-language televi-

sion channel, paid roughly $325 million to broadcast the 2010 and 2014 World Cups. With the majority of their viewers rooting for El Tri, the channel would lose a vast amount of its viewers in 2014, resulting in a major loss of revenue. Adidas, the official apparel sponsor of El Tri, released a new Mexican jersey for 2014. However, unlike the last World Cup, this jersey may not be so sought after.

“Six-hundred million dollars is a substantial of money to gamble on a sports team, even in such a grand stage as the World Cup.” Adidas said the Mexico jersey was its best selling international jersey at the 2010 tournament in South Africa. If the team fails to qualify to Brazil, the sports apparel firm will be stuck with a new jersey symbolizing the failure of the team, with little appeal to the nation’s citizens.

Other companies, including Coca-Cola Co., Wells Fargo & Co., Allstate Corp., Visa Inc. and Anheuser-Busch InBev, all have sponsorship deals with El Tri, believing they would participate in soccer’s biggest event. Travel companies in both Mexico and Brazil will see a huge hit in their anticipated revenue if Mexico does not book their trip to the tournament. According to FIFA, Mexico was among the top 10 countries requesting the most tickets for the World Cup. According to Bloomberg Businessweek, 15,000 Mexicans traveled to South Africa at an estimated cost of $10,000 per person. Because next summer’s event will be held in South America, the amount of travelers is expected to rise. Aeromexico, the country’s largest airline, would lose an opportunity to gather millions, of dollars in revenue in an event held only once every four years. In a fortunate situation for all these companies, the Mexican national team was able to pull to an early lead against its New Zealand counterparts, therefore easing the stress on their investors. However, this should teach a lesson to companies that investing millions of dollars on a team can prove to be a dangerous investment, and an unnecessary one at that.

Elizabeth Warren most progressive woman candidate ELLIOT LAM Daily Titan

Even before President Barack Obama was reelected last year, the question everybody had been asking was whether or not Hillary Clinton will run for president in three years. The former secretary of state left her post in February with a 69 percent approval rating, surpassing the 67 percent favorability rating she garnered in December 1998 when her husband had been impeached by the House of Representatives. Her speeches at highly visible public events in Los Angeles this past weekend further fueled the speculation that she plans on running. Unfortunately, Clinton’s visit to the Southland was overshadowed by an article in the New Republic that spelled out what it would mean for her if Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren were to enter the race for president. In his story, author Noam Sheiber said the contender for 2016 “would certainly have to be a woman, given Democrats’ desire to make history again.” But Warren’s sex isn’t the only reason why she should run. Sheiber brought several truths to light that had been on the minds of many Democrats. Economic inequality, for one, has been an issue that continues to resonate with Democratic voters. Sheiber said progressive voters have grown increasingly weary of Wall Street since it became apparent the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act would be watered down. The legislation, named after two members of Congress, was originally intended to place greater restrictions on the financial sector. The fact that Clinton and many of her supporters have ties to this beleaguered industry will problematize her future candidacy as calls for more regulation grow each year. Clinton is then left in a position where she must choose between alienating the financial institutions that are bankrolling her campaign, or disappointing the core of Democratic voters who are vehemently against Wall Street. Warren, on the other hand, has largely become known

among progressives for her work in creating the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Her decision to run for Senate came only after it was clear she would not be appointed to head to the financial regulatory agency she had helped create. During her Senate campaign, Warren talked to voters about the difficulties she experienced growing up in a middle class family. Her narrative has been mythologized practically to the same level as the story Obama told of his mother who struggled to fight with insurance companies before she died from cancer. Given the strength with which Obama pushed for health care reform, few will doubt the tenacity with which Warren will push for fixing income inequality if she becomes president. More importantly, Warren was the most vociferous advocate for students this past summer when Congress debated the interest rates of student loans. Unlike some of her colleagues, she said she did not believe the government should be making a profit from one of the greatest obstacles to higher education. With the total student loan debt reaching close to a trillion dollars, it is almost certain that a Warren candidacy will have broad student support. Perhaps the most compelling reason for Elizabeth Warren to run for president is that she would keep all the candidates in the Democratic field honest. It is usually the most liberal voters that turn out in Democratic primaries and caucuses, much in the same way that the most conservative voters turn out in Republican primaries and caucuses. If the most progressive candidate is a centrist establishment figure who can sleep perfectly fine knowing many people have lost their homes due to predatory lending practices, the other contenders will not feel the need to reassess their liberal street cred. However, if a true progressive enters the race with enough momentum, the other candidates in the field will be forced to take more progressive stances, or risk losing support from their core supporters. Can anyone think of a viable Democratic candidate more progressive than Elizabeth Warren?

Hazing has become a sort of locker room tradition for teams across the National Football League, but in Miami, the hazing has taken a drastic turn. Second-year Miami Dolphins right tackle, Jonathan Martin, left the team after an incident in the team’s cafeteria, Dolphins Head Coach Joe Philbin said. Martin had been a victim of consistent hazing over a year and a half from fellow teammate Richie Incognito. Incognito, the team’s starting left guard since the 2010 season, left a voicemail on Martin’s phone using racial slurs and threatened to harm him and his family. The voicemail has since been released to the public. Rookie hazing has become commonplace in the majority of professional sports, but it should have no place in the locker room. San Diego Chargers 2009 first-round pick, Larry English, had to take the team out to dinner as part of his rookie hazing and the bill came out to be over $14,000. Although it was a large hit on English’s bank account, he had signed a five-year, $13.4 million rookie contract and the hazing was fairly harmless. However, a further look at Incognito’s hazing shows that it was anything but harmless. “F*** you, you’re still a rookie. I’ll kill you,” said Incognito in the voicemail he FOLLOW US ON TWITTER: @DAILY_TITAN

left for Martin in April. In the voicemail, Incognito used racial slurs against Martin and said he wanted to slap his mother in the face. Incognito has since been suspended from the team, and the Miami Dolphins organization has voiced its disapproval of his actions while voicing their support for Martin.

“ ... Incognito used racial slurs against Martin and said he wanted to slap his mother in the face.” The incident between the two players has exposed the hidden dangers in a locker room and the consequences that can arise. Bullying and hazing in schools are topics tackled by administrators and parents who strive to keep schools safe for children and teachers alike. In 2008, a Yale University study published in the International Journal of Adolescent Medicine and Health concluded that bullying victims are two to nine times more likely to commit suicide. School administrations in schools around the country have placed an increased emphasis on halting bullying and teaching students the negative impacts it may have on both the bully and the victims. Instead of reducing the number of bullying incidents as people mature and get older, bullies become more violent as

they get older. According to the Ark of Hope for Children, an organization advocating for the emotional care for abused, trafficked and bullied children, “there is a lower rate of serious violent crimes in the elementary level than in the middle or high schools.” Bullying is not just a problem exclusive to grade schools. At the university level, fraternities around the nation are often criticized and penalized for hazing incidents that put harm to their members. Now, hazing has extended past the classrooms and into the world of professional sports where grown men are expected to act in a much more civilized manner. Despite the kind of career they entered, athletes should be able to feel comfortable and safe in the locker room. After all, football is their job and this type of behavior would not be tolerated in any other work environment. Since the incident, Martin has expressed his desire to return to playing football. However, it is yet to be known how players around the league will react to his return. Many of his teammates spoke out in support of Incognito, belittling the situation as nothing but locker room fun. Many players around the league said they believe he broke an unwritten rule in the NFL, a sort of “what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas” mentality. Despite how many supporters Martin may or may not have, the jury is out that Incognito crossed the line. Whether he meant harm or not, threatening to kill Martin was unacceptable.

Every day seats viewed as art The Fullerton Museum showcases “The Art of Seating” exhibit JENNIFER NGUYEN For the Daily Titan

Within schools, at work, in restaurants, doctor’s offices and homes, chairs serve as an everyday functional item. Some can be incredibly comfortable, while others make our backs and bottoms hurt. It’s an everyday object, but at one local museum, the chair is also viewed as art. Through the end of December, the Fullerton Museum is featuring “The Art of Seating: 200 Years of American Design.” The exhibit is a collection of more than 40 chairs dating back to the mid-1800s, all the way to more modern pieces. The chairs tell the story of our national history and how American artistry, design and craftsmanship evolved throughout the past 200 years. The exhibit was organized by The Museum of Contemporary Arts, Jacksonville and the Thomas H. and Diane DeMell Jacobsen Ph.D. Foundation. The designers showcased in this collection include Frank Gehry, George Hunzinger, the Stickley Brothers, Charles and Ray Eames and Frank

Lloyd Wright. “The Art of Seating” has been making its rounds throughout the country, from one museum to another since January 2011. “‘The Art of Seating’ is a larger exhibit than they are used to having,” said Aimee Aul, an education coordinator at the Fullerton Museum. “Due to the facility’s small size, the exhibits they have had throughout the years have mainly been small as well,” she said. Aul said it’s interesting for visitors to see how the chairs were built and designed, as well as think about the kind of people who once used them. Many elementary school teachers have taken their students to the exhibit to teach them about design, shapes and colors. “I think it’s a good overview of American design,” she said. “One thing I didn’t realize before is that American manufacturing and design is pretty distinct.” The start of the exhibit consisted of chairs from the early 1800s. They ranged from simple designs and shapes to extremely intricate furniture. One of the most popular chairs presented is the House of Representatives Chamber Arm Chair from 1857, which was designed by architect Thomas Ustick Walter. Made of oak and pine, it consists of detailed woodwork along

the armrests and down the legs of the chair. The chair was manufactured by Bembe and Kimbel and the Hammitt Desk Manufacturing Company. Another chair that stands out from the 1800s is the centripetal spring armchair, which displays ornamental patterns throughout its frame. Unlike the rocking chairs from that period, the centripetal spring armchair could rotate in any combination of directions, such as the office chairs we are accustomed to using today. As visitors make their way through the exhibit, they will find the chair designs and structures become more modern, emphasizing simplicity. Frank Lloyd Wright, who is most well-known for his written works, was also a well-renowned architect. On display at “The Art of Seating” was the Johnson Wax Company Chair, which belonged to the administration building of S.C. Johnson & Son, a global manufacturer of household cleaning supplies and consumer chemicals. The chair, which was made in 1938, was one of many projects Wright worked on during his time at the headquarters, along with the building itself as well as other furniture pieces in the facility.

The Johnson Wax Company Chair was made with brass, original loop-pile upholstery and enameled steel. Toward the end of the exhibit, guests will come across a bench in which the design goes far beyond typical flatly shaped seats and legs. The Ionic Bench, designed by Laurie Beckerman in 2010, is shaped like the capital of an Ionic column. “Instead of the look of dense stone, I wanted to extract the lines of the form to create a light, spacious and resilient bench in which a person sits in the middle, framed on either side by two big, luxurious scrolls,” Beckerman said. “The lines of the plies evoke a feeling of movement and vibrancy.” Richard Smith, curator at the Fullerton Museum, said the museum mostly displays popular culture and occasionally fine art exhibits. “As a kid growing up in the ‘50s and ‘60s, I just assumed that was a chair,” Smith said. “I didn’t really see it in context as I see it now. I think it’s very interesting how architecture reflects in the furniture design.” “The Art of Seating” exhibit will run until Dec. 31. It can be viewed Tuesday through Sunday from noon to 4 p.m., and hours are extended to 8 p.m. on Thursdays.

How to Deal

Graduation and student loan payments MIA MCCORMICK Daily Titan

Out of the nearly 20 million Americans who attend college each year, about 12 million of them take out student loans each year to cover the cost of their education. Starting out, this process of funding may seem harmless. But then comes repayment notices and towering interest rates, and that is when reality starts to sink in for many students. This predicament is especially intimidating if students have yet to find employment in the struggling job market. The unemployment rate for 2013 college graduates as of May was 7 percent. Nearly 8 percent of graduates have parttime jobs, but are seeking full-time employment. I can wholeheartedly empathize with the woes of student loans. I began my college career borrowing from funding provided through my FAFSA as well as private loan companies to cover the cost of tuition and housing. Now in my senior year at Cal State Fullerton and preparing to graduate in the spring, with four years of loans threatening to swallow up any bit of savings I might have, the weight of the repayment burden is weighing heavy on my shoulders. Working my just-above-minimum-wage retail job is obviously not going to pay those bills. Therefore, coming up with a plan is crucial at this point. For me, graduate school is the option that makes the most sense. This will give me time to put off paying back my student debt while earning a degree that will hopefully provide me with a higher paying job when I graduate the second time around. Although the average student loan-related debt reached an average $35,200 in 2013, an education is still considered essential for success. However, my plan is not for everyone facing student loan debt. Chris Farrell, a third-year entertainment studies major, has been taking out loans since his first year at CSUF. After attending private schools from

kindergarten until his senior year of high school, Farrell’s parents left the responsibility of funding his college education to him. Limited on options, he chose to borrow from the government. Fortunately for Farrell, his borrowed funding has come solely from his loans provided through FAFSA. He has not had to take out any private loans, which come with

steeper interest rates than federal funding. Farrell hopes to graduate in the spring of 2015 and does not have a plan yet as to how he will pay back his student loans upon graduation. However, he anticipates having to rely on a part-time minimum wage job to keep up with the fees and climbing interest rates on top of his original student loan debt.

“I’ll probably end up taking some random job somewhere, like at a Starbucks or something, just to start paying off the loans because I don’t want to mess with my credit. That would be really devastating,” Farrell said. Farrell said he hopes to someday work in television, which he explained as a highly competitive “fire and hire” industry. He knows that landing the job of his dreams is going to be difficult, especially while trying to hold onto a temporary job needed just to attempt to repay his debt. “I think it’s going to be very stressful. I’ll probably be getting gray hair before the age of 30,” Farrell said. “It’s going to be tough, but I’ve got to do what I’ve got to do.” Julie Nguyen, a junior health science major, plans to be a pharmaceutical representative after graduation. She has been fortunate enough to not have to take out loans up until this point, since she has had her tuition covered by financial aid. However, she does worry that loans will have to become an option for her if it takes longer than expected to complete her degree. “I won’t be nervous if I have a career lined up,” Nguyen said. “But if not, I believe the APR is pretty low so hopefully I can work something out with that and pay a little bit per month.” When it does come time to begin making those monthly payments, graduates will also be faced with rising interest rates and additional fees tacked on to those original loans. These repayment challenges will continue to become even more strenuous as interest rates change with the legislation passed by Congress earlier this year, which changed interest rates to move with the financial markets. However, the debt that comes with a college education is still considered to be worth the cost. Despite the seemingly unbearable debt, a college degree increases the potential earnings of an individual compared to a person without a degree. Dealing with student debt may seem unbearable during the repayment process, but the benefits certainly outweigh the challenges, even though it might not seem that way right now.

Campus recyclables become a living Mayola Contreras-Martinez has built a relationship with students on campus ANDRES MARTINEZ

Daily Titan

ANDRES MARTINEZ / Daily Titan

Mayola Contreras-Martinez came to the United States five years ago to build a better life.

FOLLOW US ON TWITTER: @DAILY_TITAN

From the State College Parking Structure to College Park, from one trash bin to another, Cal State Fullerton is a workplace for Mayola Contreras-Martinez. Contreras-Martinez is 83 years old, and she spends her time picking out bottles and cans from trash bins on campus to pay for her medication and food. After leaving Guanajuato, Mexico five years ago, ContrerasMartinez arrived in Anaheim to stay with her daughter, Leticia Contreras. She wanted to come to the United States because she thought she would be living in paradise. In reality, she makes about $10 to $15 a day, but said she does not mind picking out bottles and cans. Contreras-Martinez came to Fullerton looking for recyclables one day and noticed people walking toward campus. She decided to follow them and has been returning 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Saturday, ever since. However, she has not gone unnoticed by students. At first glance, some people would think Contreras-Martinez is ungroomed and possibly homeless. But Contreras-Martinez rents a room from her daughter and is always well-dressed. Students would be surprised to learn that she often sends some of her clothes to the cleaners because she likes the way they iron them and that she always eats out

for breakfast, lunch and dinner. She also makes sure to always wear her gold jewelry. Contreras-Martinez said she does not want people to think she is homeless. She said she chose to make money by collecting bottles and cans because she enjoys it. Many students recognize Contreras-Martinez by the multicolor head bandana she wears. Those people don’t know her name, but they identify her as the lady who picks up the recyclables and wears a head bandana. To those who don’t speak a word of Spanish, Contreras-Martinez said she simply smiles at them. She doesn’t speak English, so smiling has become her gesture of appreciation and respect. However, the language barrier has never stopped her from interacting with students. Contreras-Martinez said she loves coming to CSUF because everyone treats her with respect and kindness. She has received food, money, shoes and even a small shopping cart so she won’t have to carry all the weight in her back. Sarahi Rad, a 22-year-old health science major, is one of the students who has interacted with Contreras-Martinez on campus. Rad first saw her about two months ago after classes while Contreras-Martinez was going through one of the trash bins. She felt bad for Contreras-Martinez and felt the need to help. “I opened my backpack to see if I could give her anything; money, food or whatever. I didn’t have anything but a water bottle and I gave her my bottle of water and she said, ‘I love you, God bless you, thank you for being nice to me,’” Rad said. “I started to cry because

you know it could have been anyone else. It could be my mom or my grandma.” Since Rad lives on campus, she invited Contreras-Martinez to eat with her at the Gastronome, which she accepted. Rad said her experience with Contreras-Martinez at the Gastronome impacted her life. “She was very grateful to me, I kissed her, hugged her, even the manager in the Gastronome was crying telling me I have a good heart,” Rad said. When people learned what Rad had done for Contreras-Martinez, people were hugging her and crying for her good deed. Denise Solís, a Spanish major, is another student that has been touched by Contreras-Martinez. She described Contreras-Martinez as hard-working, approachable and amicable. “For her to scour through the campus bins looking for bottles as a means of surviving day-to-day life is very noble,” Solís said. “But for her to be adamant about her personal adversities is nothing but touching.” Solís also said CSUF students should be conscious of her and other individuals who endure such hardships in life. “She is a wonderful lady, she has a lot of knowledge. She has told me a lot of things that she has been through in life that made her stronger,” Rad said. Rad also said during one of their conversations, ContrerasMartinez shared with her that she regrets not coming to the United States at a younger age because she could have gone to college. Contreras-Martinez said she will continue coming to CSUF six days out of the week until the day she can no longer walk.

HEARTBREAKER

Continued from PAGE 1

The Redhawks relied on their two junior guards, Isiah Umipig and Jarell Flora, to spearhead the offense with their deep shooting abilities. Umipig, a former Titan, scored 24 points on 7-12 shooting, including four three-pointers. His teammate Flora led all scorers in the match with 25 points on 8-17 shooting from the field, including five from behind the three-point arc.

No other Seattle player had more than nine points on the night, showing the limited scoring options they were able to put on the court. Despite having only two capable scorers to defend, CSUF struggled to shut down the elusive guards of the Redhawks. Overall, the team statistics were fairly even over the course of the game, as Fullerton shot just under 44 percent from the field, compared to Seattle who was just above that at 44.4 percent. The Redhawks made one

less free throw, and actually struggled just as much as the Titans from the line, shooting just 62.5 percent compared to the Titans’ 66.7 percent. The Titans’ offense was paced by senior guard Michael Williams, who had 17 points to go along with four rebounds and two assists. Senior forward Marquis Horne and junior guard Alex Harris also added 14 points apiece for CSUF. With the loss, the Titans fell to 1-1 on the young 2013 season, with both games played

away from Titan Gym. Seattle’s win was their first of the season and they now hold a 1-1 record. The home opener for CSUF will take place Saturday at 6 p.m. in Titan Gym. They will take on the visiting Santa Clara Broncos, who come into the match with a perfect 2-0 mark this season. The Titans will have the opportunity to avenge this loss on Dec. 7 when they will meet again with the Redhawks at home. It is clear that Fullerton

has some glaring weaknesses it will need to clean up as the competition increases going forward in the season, and closing out games will likely be on the forefront of Head Coach Dedrique Taylor’s agenda as the year continues to develop. However, it is obvious that CSUF has the talent and ability to play competitive basketball this season, and with three months left in the season they have plenty of time to improve on their early season mistakes and find ways to win.

CSUF volleyball hosts weekend doubleheader The Titans are looking to put together their first win streak since September IAN O’BRIEN Daily Titan

The Cal State Fullerton women’s volleyball team snapped their losing streak of six matches with a win over UC Riverside and look to build momentum with a win against UC Irvine on Friday. The Titans’ overall record stands at 10-13 and their conference record is a lowly 3-8, which only ranks above UCR’s record. This marks CSUF’s first win since Oct. 12, which also came against the Highlanders. CSUF beat the Highlanders in a convincing sweep. The scores were 25-16, 25-11 and 25-20. The Titans hope to string together consecutive wins for the first time since Sept. 13, when the team was on a season high five-game winning streak. They face UCI and Long Beach State this weekend, who will both be challenging opponents for CSUF. UCI is coming off a close win against UC Davis after losing three matches in a row. The Anteaters’ record now stands at 12-13 overall, and they are tied with the Titans in the conference with a 3-8 record. Long Beach State is coming off a close loss to Big West powerhouse Cal State Northridge, but they have still won five of their last seven matches. Their overall record stands at 13-11

with a 6-5 conference record. The 49ers currently sit in fourth place in the conference. The Anteaters swept the Titans in their last match on Oct. 19 at the Bren Center. The Anteaters hold the advantage in the all-time series with a record of 36-29. This series dates back to 1980, but UCI has won the last seven matches. The 49ers beat the Titans in a stunning comeback in their last meeting on Oct. 18 at Walter Pyramid. Long Beach State’s women have dominated the alltime series record at 63-5. Their series against the Titans dates back to 1980. The 49ers have won the last two meetings. CSUF will continue to rely on the leadership of senior rightside hitter Alyse Hensley and senior outside hitter Bre Moreland. Hensley leads the Titans in kills with 260 and 3.17 kills per set. Moreland has also contributed greatly in the kills category with 233 and 2.84 kills per set. Moreland is only six kills away from reaching the CSUF alltime top 10 for career kills. Freshman libero McKenna Painton holds a clear lead in digs for the Titans with 317 and 4.59 digs per set. Moreland has contributed 286 digs and 3.49 per set, and Hensley has added 264 digs and 3.22 per set. Junior setter Julie Consani continues to serve as the Titans’ facilitator with 895 assists and 10.91 per set. Consani is sixth in all-time assists for CSUF.

dition to their kills. They have 19 and 17 respectively. Painton isn’t far behind them with 14. The Titans head into their next match with a .189 hitting percentage, and they have allowed a .188 hitting percentage to their opponents. The Anteaters are looking to break out of a slump of their own as they have lost three of their last four matches. Senior outside hitter Aly Squires leads the Anteaters in kills with 291 and averages three per set. Sophomore outside hitter Marisa Bubica has

264 kills and leads the Anteaters with 3.03 per set. Freshman libero Arden Davis leads the Anteaters in digs with 291 and 3.64 per set. Squires has also contributed in the digs department with 246 and 2.54 digs per set. Freshman setter Shelley Anderson has acted as facilitator for the Anteaters with 861 assists and 8.88 per set. Senior middle blocker Shannon Fleming leads the Anteaters in service aces with 38. UCI has collectively hit .214 while they have allowed their

opponents to hit .195. The 49ers are looking to ride their momentum under the leadership of senior outside hitter Delainey Aigner-Swesey, who leads them in kills with 315 and 3.39 per set. Sophomore outside hitter Alex Reid trails Aigner-Swesey in kills with 285 and 2.97 kills per set. Junior libero Tyler Jackson leads the 49ers in digs with 313 and 3.26 per set. Aigner-Swesey and Reid trail respectively with 274 and 2.95 per set and 223 and 2.32 per set. Sophomore setter Erin Juley

The 49ers have hit .239 as a team while they have surrendered a .209 hitting percentage to their opponents. The Titans will host each of their next two games at Titan Gym. Their match against UCI will take place on Friday at 7 p.m. The following night at 7:30 p.m., the Titans will face Long Beach State.

Unusual fears could appear. Follow your inner wisdom and improvise as you go. There’s time to edit later. Some actions could be temporarily delayed or blocked. Use this opportunity to catch up on others.
