The 15-month Persian language program will teach students why Farsi is the ‘language of love’ By Melissa Hoon

Daily Titan Asst. Opinion Editor news@dailytitan.com

Cal State Fullerton is offering a Persian language program this summer, beginning June 14. The 15-month “life-changing” program, funded by a grant from the Strategic Language Initiative Program, has three modules. The first module takes place over a nine-unit summer school session and covers three Persian courses – Persian 203, 204 and 300. The class, taught by Persian program coordinator Ali Miremadi, is six weeks long and meets

Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Over several weekends this summer, the class will visit places and attend events in the area that will help students become more familiar with Persian culture. These culturally-enriched locations include the Iranian Church of Love in Orange, as well as a Zoroastrian Temple and an Islamic Center. A potluck will also be held to become familiar with Islamic families. “It’s best for students who want to study Persian to communicate with families (of that heritage) and to be involved in areas (that boast) Persian culture,” Miremadi said.

The second module convenes over the next two semesters (fall 2010 and spring 2011). In this module, students will take necessary classes toward the completion of their Persian major. Students will spend most of their 2011 summer studying abroad in Tajikistan for the third module. They will live with a local host family to help improve their Persian and better understand the culture. “(Module three) is essential. Classroom learning is used to assist students to engage in natural communication in real Persian context,” said Janet Eyring, department chair

of modern languages and literature. “Tajikistan is the next best thing to living in Iran, which is impossible at this time, because students are able to use the language they studied at Cal State Fullerton.” Living and studying abroad will allow students to do more than practice their Persian. “Studying abroad in Tajikistan is a fantastic opportunity (for students) to experience the Persian culture, customs and way of life. The students will be able to live it firsthand,” said Persian Professor Parastoo Danaee. See PERSIAN, Page 3

Library poetry event generates creativity By CORT TAFOYA

Daily Titan Staff Writer news@dailytitan.com

On Wednesday afternoon, the Pollack Library hosted a joint celebration of National Poetry Month and Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month. The event featured two poetry writing workshops, a poetry reading from professor Irena Praitis and teaching associate J.D. Isip, as well as special guest reader, Oliver De La Paz, a poet of Filipino heritage. Associated Students Inc. provided some funding for the event. About 25 guests sat down in room PLS 102A to support their love of poetry. Praitis and Isip were the key coordinators who put the special occasion together. “We like to set aside a week each year to host this event. We’ve been bringing in poets for about four or five yeas now,” Praitis said. She then explained the simplistic

reason for combining poetry month and Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage month. “Those things overlap. Sometimes we’ll mix it together with library week,” Praitis said, laughing. “At the end of the semester things are kind of crazy. Doing stuff like this reminds us of things that refresh us,” Praitis added. Isip, who is a Cal State Fullerton alumnus currently working on his Master’s, talked about what he likes best about this annual event. “Reading my own stuff is kind of fun. We generate interest in people talking about poetry,” Isip said, adding that the inclusion of guest speaker Paz made the event even more memorable. Paz has written multiple poetry books. He lives in Washington and has taught there for five years as a professor of creative writing, but didn’t want to miss a chance to come visit Southern California, where he attended school. “I had a previous speaking engagement booked in California,” Paz said.

Professor and chair of marketing, Irene Lange received the Lifetime Achievement Award on April 8. The award recognizes her array of accomplishments over her career at Cal State Fullerton since 1965. Lange, a Lithuanian native, came to the United States in 1951. With an intense passion for learning, she powered her way through school and received her Bachelor’s, Master’s and Ph.D. from the University of Illinois. See LANGE, Page 2

“And I wanted to spend a longer time in Los Angeles. I wanted to revisit for a bit. So I booked four readings, one of which was (at) CSUF.” Paz also talked about the type of poetry he likes to write. “Depends on what project I’m working on,” he said. “When I first started, it was kind of light. I worked on magic realism. Now it’s gotten a little more serious. My themes of interest are finding grace.” One of the two writing workshops was a lesson on how to use criticism to improve writing. The other involved finding musicality within poetry. Before the readers shared their work, they offered crowd-pleasing anecdotes explaining

what inspired them to write their poems. The audience seemed to enjoy hearing the writers’ poems and clapped after each reading. Isip’s poems discussed issues such as sex and death, while Paz’s included many issues about where he grew up.

INTERNATIONAL Israel denies freezing settlements

JERUSALEM – A month after the Obama administration asked Israel to clarify its position on controversial settlement-building projects in East Jerusalem, Israeli officials openly disagree with developers about whether there’s a freeze. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat have said publicly that there’s no freeze in Jerusalem construction, but developers on the ground say there’s been a “change in atmosphere” regarding settlement projects. “We are running into problems in places where we didn’t used to. There is suddenly red tape and holdups. The municipality is making it very hard for us and asking us to be quiet about it,” said Aryeh King, the founder of the Israel Land Fund and a well-known activist on behalf of Jewish projects in East Jerusalem.

NATIONAL

Senate proceeds with financial bill WASHINGTON – The Senate agreed Wednesday to end a three-day stalemate and move ahead with formal consideration of historic legislation to overhaul the nation’s financial regulatory system. Efforts to craft a bipartisan agreement broke up Wednesday, with Republicans, who’d stalled the bill, getting few, if any, concessions and perhaps starting to suffer some political consequences. The Senate next will begin debating and voting on possible changes to the massive bill, which would order the biggest overhaul since the Great Depression of how the government oversees financial institutions. The Senate should take about a month to work through the legislation, and if it passes, it will have to be reconciled with a different version.

Los Angeles is still the nation’s smoggiest city LOS ANGELES – Metropolitan Los Angeles, extending to Riverside and Long Beach, remains the smoggiest city in the United States, with an average of more than 140 days a year of dangerous ozone levels, the American Lung Association reported Wednesday in its annual assessment. All of the nation’s 10 smoggiest counties are in California, with San Bernardino, Riverside, Kern, Tulare and Los Angeles leading the pack. And the state’s cities and counties, with their ports, refineries, power plants and crowded freeways, rank near the top for particle pollution. “This is not just a nuisance or a bother,” said Bonnie Holmes-Gen, the lung association’s California policy director. “Thousands of people are being rushed to emergency rooms. Thousands of people are dying early as a result of air pollution. ... It is a crisis.” The report comes at a time of conflict over California’s efforts to slash emissions.

Toyota showcased its hydrogenpowered hybrid vehicle last night in its “Pathway to Sustainable Mobility” presentation hosted by Justin Ward, the advanced powertrain program manager of Toyota’s Gardena plant. The event was the sixth and final presentation in the “Future Vehicles Technologies” series hosted by the Southern California section of the Society of Automotive Engineers, a professional society for engineers involved in automotive and aerospace activities. They have held seminars since September that highlight the advances being made in the auto industry to include hybrid and electircal compounds in cars, trucks and tractors. “They are rather interesting systems. They combine internal combustion and electric power in various ways,” said Michael McCarthy, professor of

mechanical engineering at UCI and president of the governing board of the Southern California branch of SAE. “Every company seems to be doing it slightly differently because we are not quite sure which technology is going to work out to be the best.” Honda, Mazda and General Motors have also presented their versions of electric cars, hydrogen engines and fuel cell technologies in previous seminars. Toyota displayed the FCHV-advanced fuel cell hybrid and discussed the efforts being made to hybridize cars in their company. The main challenges that companies face today are the production of carbon dioxide, oil consumption and energy diversification, and air pollution and air quaility. “At Toyota, when we look at solutions of the future, we have to make sure we balance these three things,” Ward said. “We have barriers we need to overcome to get to a place where the vehicle is sustainable.”

Ward compared the differences between Toyota’s Highlander hybrid vehicle and the current Highlander, stating that the hybrid was able to get 68.3 miles per gallon while the regular only gets 22 miles per gallon. “The reason we hold hybrids so high is we don’t look at it as a stepping stone to electric vehicles, we look at it as a pathway and enabler to alternative fuels,” Ward said. “Hybrid technology enables us to use fuels we would otherwise not be able to utilize, and in a more efficient way. When we look at hybrid technology compared to diesel and gasoline, you can see that the hybrid car has a clear benefit compared to conventional gasoline cars because they reduce emissions of carbon dioxide.” Despite the potential positive outcomes that hybrid technology may soon provide, many audience members were unsure of how successful hybrid vehicles will really be. “I come to these events because I’m interested in the future technol-

ANNIVERSARY: celebrated From Page 1

The panel will be host to six Cal State Fullerton alumni who are current and former journalists from different parts of the country. The panelists are Walt Baranger, senior technology editor of The New York Times; Samuel Chi, editor-in-chief of RealClearSports; Susan Dunne, copy editor of The Hartford Courant; Marie Montgomery Nordhues, public relations at Automobile Club of Southern California; Shauna Snow-Capparelli, associate professor at Mount Royal University and Terry Spencer, Florida news editor for The Associated Press. The panelists will talk about their experiences at the Daily Titan and what they are currently doing in the journalism industry. In addition, the speakers will talk about the places where jobs can be found and how students can mold themselves for positions they want. Other topics include whether learning mul-

timedia technologies is better than staying with one platform. Peggy Garcia Bockman, assistant dean for Student Affairs in the College of Communications, said that that the panel was to “cultivate relations with our alumni.” “Because we know our students get good training here and move out,” Garcia Bockman said, “and move into jobs in communications and they are successful in their field.” Another point that will be covered is whether a journalism background helps in other fields. Pullen expects over 200 people to attend the celebration, which also includes a silent auction with proceeds going toward two scholarships. Daily Titan memorabilia such as Tshirts and pins will be distributed to registered attendees in a “goodie bag.” Pullen, who was a Daily Titan adviser from 1973 to 1977, said that students should be interested in the panel discussion because the newspa-

pers surrounding us are in bankruptcy and also to see what they should be doing to succeed in the field. Pullen said graduating seniors in the communication field should attend the alumni panel to hear professionals who are long-term journalists and see what they have to say. In addition to that, he expects panelists to discuss possible opportunities for students and see what the future may hold. Bockman said she knows students get good training in CSUF and eventually move into jobs in communications and are successful in their field. For that reason, she thinks it’s important to note the reach that CSUF has in training professionals. “I think it’s critical to make connections with alum and to listen to how things have changed over the last 10 years and think that they’re going to be part of the change,” Bockman said. “We need the next generation of students and journalists to move us forward.”

Lange has been reelected as department chair by faculty since 1975. “Dr. Lange is highly respected by her faculty,” said Irene Matz, associate dean for the College of Communications. “She’s a great leader who motivates, encourages and inspires to go beyond a persons expectations.” Matz said Lange is known for her big heart and for being fiercely loyal. Additionally, Matz said Lange is also known for encouraging and motivating her faculty to attend mandatory and non-mandatory university events, like commencement and award ceremonies. According to Matz, Lange’s faculty is usually the highest in attendance at these events. “Irene knows us – her faculty members – well, both in our strengths and weaknesses,” Harich said. “She allows us to pursue venues that let us shine and be fulfilled. It makes her happy to see us succeed.” Lange is not new to being recognized for her accomplishments. In 1998, she received an Honorary Doctorate from the Kaunas University of Technology in Lithuania. She was hon-

ored for what she has contributed to the university since 1993 by helping to build a marketing curriculum from the ground up. Additionally, she and other CSUF faculty members have donated books to Kaunas to build a library. Lange thrives on her daily experiences with her students. She said she does not only teach them, they teach her. “I don’t care what type of questions students have, whether they are considered silly or juvenile. I think all questions are refreshing,” Lange said. “I like helping students find out what they’d like to do for careers.” Students’ futures are top priority, according to Lange. “Students have to differentiate themselves through internships and experience to prepare for the job market because things are constantly changing,” Lange said. Lange agrees with faculty members, like Matz, that she will never retire. “As long as I’m enjoying (teaching), I’m healthy and I’m making a contribution, then I’d like to stay here,” Lange said.

LANGE: LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT From Page 1

“I could have kept going to school forever,” Lange said. “I liked being a student; that’s why I like teaching – it’s like being a student because I learn new things all the time.” When Lange began applying for jobs after receiving her bachelor’s degree, she found that the job market was discriminatory. It was the 1960s, and most employers were looking for “a male over 25 years old,” Lange said. Lange was determined to not let the standards of the day keep her from securing a job in her desired industry. She persevered until she landed a marketing job at 21 years old – a job that had asked for a male over 25 years old. Her colleagues note that her tenacity is also evident in her work at CSUF. “(Irene) is outspoken, especially when one of her mentees or causes needs support,” said marketing professor Katrin Harich. “She is courageous and will ‘give a piece of her mind’ to just about anybody – be it a dean, a vice president or a president.”

ogy,” said David Gonzalez, a Cal State Northridge alumni and member of the SAE. “I think the biggest thing that I’m still skeptical about is the cost and how they are going to implement it. Somebody needs to bite the bullet, but nobody wants to right now because everything is set up for gasoline.” Questions were also raised about the safety of hybrid vehicles, the production of hydrogen and how Toyota’s hybrid vehicles stand out from other automobile companies. “This is a growing technology that is very important to Southern California,” said McCarthy. “It is going to provide a lot of jobs in the future because the demand for automobiles is just going to increase, and we have to find more energy efficient ways of driving those vehicles. The part of the country that succeeds in that is going to be very successful economically. So it’s in the best interest of Southern California and all the engineers we are training at UCI and Cal State Fullerton.”

He explained that one of the problems is that Greek organization leaders haven’t realized the amount of events that take place in the neighborhoods at one time that cause loud noise and disturbance. Fullerton Senior Planner Bob St. Paul also spoke out, explaining that the continued misuse could result in the houses losing their conditional use permit, which means “you cease to exist on that property.” St. Paul said. “We want the students to be safe. That’s what the city is concerned with.” He challenged the members of the CSUF Greek community to ask themselves, “Are you good to your community?” “This is a big step, but there’s gonna be hiccups,” St. Paul said. “I would hope that we could all get together more often and have constructive meetings so that these folks and their Greek brothers and sisters can understand.” Lopez agreed. “Our biggest goal is to continue with these events, barbecues, anything to have neighbors be able to come up and express their concerns, or tell us how good we’re doing,” he said. “It would be nice to have you guys come back in a couple months and say, ‘you know, you guys have really improved.” If student leaders such as ourselves can hear that, it gives us that much more motivation to continue.” The meeting concluded with Lopez committing to hold mandatory orientations for fraternity and sorority presidents and create a resolution to the neighbors in writing. “We can have that done before the end of the semester,” he vowed.

Persian: intense course offered From Page 1

The Cal State University system recently designed the SLI Program to teach languages, like Persian, so people living in the United States can work efficiently with citizens from countries where different languages are spoken. The CSU system awards an annual grant to a university for an immersion program like this, where students can learn about culture by being part of it, as opposed to simply learning in a classroom. “(CSUF was) chosen because Fullerton is located in Orange County, where a very large population of Persian-speaking people live,” Eyering said. CSUF alumna Kelly Fazel, 31, former linguistics major, was part of the 2008-2009 Persian language program.

She chose to be part of the program so she could learn to read, write and speak the language of her heritage. But Fazel learned much more than that. “I learned a lot, not only about my heritage language, but also the Iranian culture. By learning more about Iranians and their language, you form your own ideas, and not to simply accept those given to you by the media,” Fazel said. The Persian language program differs from a typical classroom setting by doing more than just allowing students to immerse themselves into the culture. “(The program) is different from a regular classroom. It was like I was hanging out with a great group of friends, along with friendly professors, and learning a new language. (Professors) gave us snacks, lunch and a great

education all for (almost) free. Our only job was to learn. What more could I ask for from a language program?” MLL faculty hopes more students apply by Friday’s deadline. Faculty members are looking forward to the program for many reasons, one being that Miremadi is leading the program. “We are lucky to have found such a fantastic professor, Dr. Miremadi, to lead this program,” Eyring said. “He is not only teaching new courses, but is developing new course proposals so that CSUF will be able to offer a minor in Persian in the future. I believe he has been living in the U.S. for less than two years, so he brings a very accurate and up-to-date perspective on Iranian life and culture to his classes.”

KABC broadcaster draws students By Juanita Vasquez and Brian zbysenski Daily Titan Staff Writers news@dailytitan.com

On the third day of Comm. Week, Cal State Fullerton welcomed Bill Thomas, a television/radio broadcaster and pilot for the KABC. In a workshop entitled, “Skills you need to find and keep a job and excel in the communications industry,” Thomas, who has been on the air for 27 years, spoke about the important aspects of the communication field. The event, hosted by professor Evans, lecturer of communications, was filled with students waiting to hear Thomas speak about his experience in the broadcast industry. Recalling an incident from his undergraduate studies, he directed the workshop towards students so that attendees would remain interested in the subject. “I told myself that if I ever came back to speak, I will never talk about myself,” Thomas said, before asking students in the room about their career

aspirations. The emergence and importance of multimedia journalism was something Thomas emphasized in his talk and said that people who are able to do a multitude of things are needed in the industry. “It will really help them (students) in the job market if they know how to do a lot of different things,” said Crystal Wishart, a member of the Comm. Week Task Force and communications major with an emphasis in public relations. “It will make them stand out.” Thomas explained that it is not only valuable, but critical to know different niches. “No matter what you do, you should all have a particular niché that you enjoy,” he added. While nichés are very important, they can not be relied on. He also said journalists not only need to be able to do the job of four to five people and be able to do it well, but that it’s critical to branch out to different skills and interests because you never know when

your niché will fade away, Thomas said. Thomas added that different ways of delivering news content is not the only thing needed in the industry. It all comes down to writing. “I have always been told that the best defense is being a good writer. No matter if you’re going into radio, or journalism or public relations, you’re going to need to know how to write,” said Wishart. Andrea Mena, who will intern for KABC in the summer, said she wanted to find out what someone in the field experienced so she could benefit and apply that to her future career. “The thing that I walked away from these workshops with is to be versatile and make sure that you know how to do more than just one thing in order to be successful in the business, otherwise you probably just won’t last,” said Mena, 22-year-old broadcast major. “Get in first, leave last, and do more than everybody else,” Thomas advised students.

Columnist shares experience By Katie Rossomano

Daily Titan Staff Writer news@dailytitan.com

Dan Bernstein, a columnist for Riverside’s The Press-Enterprise newspaper, spoke to Cal State Fullerton students on Tuesday about successful writing techniques and the role and future of journalism in society. The Comm. Week event, “Does Journalism Matter Anymore? And Why Not?” was held in the Titian Student Union. Bernstein was invited to speak by part-time instructor Mel Opotowsky who worked with Bernstein at The Press-Enterprise. “He (Bernstein) has some very interesting observations about writing and I wanted him to share those points with my feature writing class,” Opotowsky said. Bernstein began by discussing the current state of journalism. “I don’t work for a newspaper anymore, I work for a provider of information that comes in many forms,” Bernstein said. The number of paid subscriptions for newspapers continues to decrease because more people are getting the same information on the Internet for free. “Once you give something away free, it’s hard to take it back and then ask people to pay for it,” Bernstein said. To make his point, Bernstein held

up a copy of the Los Angeles Times and jokingly commented, “This is a newspaper... I don’t know if anyone has seen one lately.” However, Bernstein feels that professional journalists still play an important role. “People want to know what is going on in their community and it takes some (journalistic) skills to figure that out,” Bernstein said. Such skills include knowing which questions to ask and where to find the answers. Journalists are also experienced writers. “I don’t think it (writing) is necessarily a lost art, but it’s an at-risk art,” Bernstein said. Bernstein also gave students writing advice, such as use of imagery, proper word choice to convey a specific tone and avoidance of clichés. He asked the audience to raise their hands if they enjoyed rewriting. One hand went up. Bernstein agreed with the majority that rewriting is not the most enjoyable process, but said that “the creative process does not end with the first draft.” Bernstein suggested that writers take a break after completing their work before they begin editing because “diminished return” occurs if one attempts to re-read or rewrite directly after completion. He also advocated that writers have their work reviewed by other people such as family, friends, colleagues or professionals. Opotowsky said that of all the writ-

ing suggestions Bernstein gave, he hoped his students would especially consider his advice on rewriting. “No one likes to do it (rewrite), but it is one of the most necessary functions in journalism,” Opotowsky said. Bernstein suggested that writers think in terms of the reader and said that they should aim to make their writing clear and efficient. He said that writing should “flow.” He also said that writers should carefully consider vocabulary and use it to set a specific tone. Bernstein said that he avoids writing about topics that he is not especially interested in, regardless of the subject’s popularity. “If I don’t feel strongly about something, I’m not going to write (my column) about it...because readers will be able to tell,” Bernstein said. However, he does try to write about topics that “resonate with readers.” He often mentions events from his own life in his writing because as a columnist he wants to develop a personal connection with readers. Nicole Johnson, a senior public relations major, attended Bernstein’s discussion with Opotowsky’s feature writing class. “It was interesting that he writes a lot about himself, it (column writing) is a lot different from feature article writing... you’re still using feature writing techniques, but it’s more personal,” Johnson said.

Bloody Beetroots came out from behind the curtains and took the stage. It was about to go off. Sick. The Beetroots orchestrated a mean set and the crowd was a riot practically the whole time, with only a short rest period during their rendition of “Phantom of the Opera.” The bass was hard and heavy, strong enough to rattle the bone, and their signature synthesized riffs and shrieking vocals electrified the venue. Some highlights included remixes of Audioporno’s “Choo Choo” and The Toxic Avenger’s “Escape” as well as originals “Dimmakmmunication” and the foreboding and ground-shaking “Warp 1977.” When it was all over, there was a sense of bewildered amazement as everyone stumbled out in a daze from the effects of getting the shit rocked out of them. So yeah, that was my Friday and it was an awesome opportunity to see them, because it will probably be the last time they will be in the U.S. for a while. You can see where they are off to next on their website Deathcrew77.com. They also have some really interesting music videos and other multimedia by Sir Bob. You can also find the Death Crew 77 “manifesto” on their site to truly see what the Bloody Beetroots are all about. These guys are committed to pushing the envelope and I can’t wait to see what they come out with next.

Long Beach high school band makes their mark with new album By Tanya Ghahremani

Daily Titan Staff Writer

SoundOff@dailytitan.com

For fans of: Local Natives, The Soft Pack, The Morning Benders At just 19 years old, Avigdor Zahner-Isenberg sounds like a veteran of the music business. His band, aptly named Avi Buffalo – “My friend made (the name) up when we were in the

eighth grade”, said Zahner-Isenberg – just released their first album through Sub Pop Records, but, when talking to him, you’d never know it. Citing Joni Mitchell, Nels Cline and John Coltrane as influences, he’s quick to add, “Everything is influence. Inspiration can come from things you don’t even have any idea you’re getting inspired from.” Zahner-Isenberg formed Avi Buffalo when he was still attending Milli-

kan High School in Long Beach with current band members Sheridan Riley, Rebecca Coleman and Arin Fazio. “(We started) pretty much just playing every gig, trying to be a good band – trying to be professional, be nice, be on time, never turn down a gig kind of thing,” Zahner-Isenberg said of the earlier days. “We played as much as possible until we were playing all over the place. If you want to play music, you gotta just play all the gigs they’re giving you.”

It paid off. After some time playing, the group recorded an album with Aaron Embry, the famed record producer who has worked with music legends like Elliott Smith and Willie Nelson. “We found a beautiful chemistry,” Zahner-Isenberg said. “Halfway through, one of his old friends who worked at A & R Sub Pop called him up and said, ‘Hey, you know, we’re digging what you’re doing with this Avi Buffalo stuff,’ and they extended some interest,” he said.

“I was freaked out by it,” Zahner-Isenberg admitted. “I had never been put in that position before.” It was then that “all that crazy, hectic business stuff started happening,” and the band Photo Courtesy sub pop records e v e n t u a l l y Avi Buffalo is a Long Beach-based band led by 19-year-old Avigdor signed with Zahner-Isenberg, alongside friends Sheridan Riley, Rebecca Coleman Sub Pop. and Arin Fazio.

Broken Social Scene – Forgiveness Rock Record

Vienne – Vienne EP By Lauren Mccann

Daily Titan Staff Writer Soundoff@dailytitan.com

For fans of: The Fray, Coldplay, Jason Mraz An eclectic arrangement of emotions driven by passionate words of hopefulness and devotion, Vienne is the seven-song digital EP written, arranged and performed by Jonathan Korszyk. Born and raised in Orange County, Korszyk began his musical endeavors at the ripe age of 15, playing piano and writing songs. Artists from across the board inspired him, from Bob Dylan, The Beatles and Aqualung, to Mozart and Chopin. Throughout Vienne, soothing melodic tones are accompanied by lyrics of love and inspiration. While stimulating tempos draw in the listener with poetic lyrics, soft

beats help one to relax and daydream. Similarities between Korszyk and notable bands such as The Fray and Coldplay are apparent, with easy listening compilations and pop singer talents. In 2009, Korszyk’s song, “Be Alright,” won the SongwriterUniverse “Best Song of the Month” for December. “Be Alright” is also one of two songs from Vienne that were showcased on prime-time television shows in 2008. “Be Alright,” co-produced by Korszyk and produced by Chris Franz, an LA producer and guitarist, was featured on Gossip Girl. This is a sweet and touching song that holds tight to a love between two people. The song starts off soft and quietly builds with expressive emotions. The track “Tales” was also featured on NBC’s Chuck in 2008. “Tales,” is the first track on Vienne,

and rightfully so. It is an uplifting song that begins with an upbeat tempo and optimistic lyrics. Singing about a revolution in time, the listener is immediately elevated by the excitement in Korszyk’s lyrics. Korszyk is a songwriter who takes anticipatory words and pieces them in between the written music. “These songs are about dreaming, love and hope. My lyrics are written to encourage and stir up the lover in the listener. I’m excited to share my music and am humbled by the opportunity to do so,” Korszyk said in his album.

Punk veteran returns to scene with ‘Love’ By Matthew Baldwin For the Daily Titan

For fans of: Ryan Adams, Paul Westerberg, Bruce Springsteen Jesse Malin has been making music since fronting the New York City hardcore punk band Heart Attack in 1980. He has been a part of several bands, including glampunks D Generation, and has received critical acclaim as a solo artist. Yet, he was ready to walk away from everything. “I found myself kind of broke and back in New York and I was living on Photo Courtesy Sideonedummy Records my sister’s couch, and I Jesse Malin released his most recent album, ‘Love it to Life’, after briefly taking a break from the was kind of searching for music scene to take on various careers, including one as a stand-up comedian. what the next thing would be,” Malin said. backing him up, Malin seems to like these where Malin seems most Briefly considering a career have found the balance to success- comfortable. change, flirted with becoming a fully walk the line.

While Malin did not meet Salinger, he did meet a couple police officers who found him to be trespassing. “I ended up at a police station and they watched a video of me and Bruce Springsteen singing a song I wrote,” Malin said. “They let me go and I ended up going back to New York. Never met the guy, but wrote five songs and was really excited to keep writing and writing, and from there came a whole record.” That record would become Love it to Life, released under Jesse Malin and the St. Marks Social. The album’s name was taken from a ticket stub autographed for Malin by the late Clash front man Joe Strummer. Love it to Life, produced by Ted Hutt (Lucero, Flogging Molly, The Gaslight Anthem), and released on SideOneDummy Records, is as Malin describes it, about rebirth. “I wanted to make a record that’s about rebirth and bringing it (the Renaissance) back, whether it’s your neighborhood or my neighborhood.” Malin recruited his musician friends to fill out The St. Marks Social, and also left the door open for some notable names to join in on the recordings. Singer-songwriter Ryan Adams, pop-star Mandy Moore and Gaslight Anthem front man Brian Fallon all make appearances on the album. The problem with Malin’s solo releases has been his attempt to straddle the line between his punk rock past and singer-songwriter present. While by no means has Malin’s previous work been terrible, it’s fair to say that his solo work has been uneven. But with The St. Mark Social

For fans of: Arcade Fire, The Most Serene Republic, Stars Broken Social Scene is back with their highly-anticipated fifth album, Forgiveness Rock Record, out May 4 on Arts & Crafts. In the five years since the release of their self-titled album, members of the Toronto collective have been working on their own projects, which could be the reason the band has taken a few more risks on this new album. Forgiveness Rock Record sees the band delving into various elements, including the use of synthesizers on a few of the tracks, experimenting with new-wave-like electronica.

The album as a whole is a little all over the place, and certain songs don’t seem to fit, specifically “Highway Slipper Jam,” which holds a weird, but appealing, infusion of post-rock with triballike beats. It goes from the upbeat “Texico Bitches” to a dance track “All to All” and finishes with the softest song on the album “Me and My Hand”. Despite it being messy at times, Forgiveness Rock Record is definitely worth listening to. As expected, the record sees appearances from other notable Toronto-based artists, including Feist, Metric’s Emily Haines and members of Stars, among others. While it is quite possibly one of the more adventerous BSS albums to date, it still holds a familiarity die-hard fans of the band will be looking for,

especially toward the end of the album where the band seems to stray away from experimentation. It starts off fast and upbeat, but gradually slows down, making it an album that can be listened to in a multitude of ways. Forgiveness Rock Record is available May 4 on Arts& Crafts Records. It is available for pre-order now, and will also be released as a limited edition, numbered boxed set, containing seven 10-inch records pressed on 180-gram heavyweight vinyl and a digital download of the album. Only 1,000 sets will be made available for $125.

Does Greek Week truly reflect the spirit of the Greek community, teamwork and sportsmanship?

By Skylar Smith

Daily Titan Opinion Editor opinion@dailytitan.com

Recently, Cal State Fullerton held its largest student-run event and pride of the Greek community: Greek Week. Fraternities and sororities worked toward the goal of raising money for their Camp Titan program. How did they do this? They held competitions to see which house could raise the most money, and held sporting and entertainment events to promote house-to-house bonding. During this week-long event, the Greeks bonded, attempted to promote unity between houses, traded information for future networking and promoted teamwork. Oh, and did I mention they also vandalized cars, had Facebook bashing wars, got ejected from games for consistent arguing with the referee and in general talked bad about other houses behind their backs? The Greek community is not known for its subtlety, but that does not make them disrespectful. As a matter of fact, they do more for creating a sense of campus life and school pride than most student organizations. They help send their brothers and sisters into the world with a sense of security because they have the connections and the resources to

make a living after college. However, when it comes to Greek Week, that lack of subtlety brings out the irresponsible, competitive high school student that we hoped to leave behind. Really? Egging cars? Facebook bashing? How do any of these acts promote a sense of teamwork and sportsmanship? Or brotherhood and sisterhood for that matter? The scary fact is that some of these Greek members are supposed to be role models and leaders at Camp Titan every summer. Even more so, these Greek members are supposed to be a part of high standing societies on campus and representatives of their campus to different chapters. How embarrassed would one chapter of a sorority feel if they saw some of the things that took place during Greek Week within that same sorority? Sure, in the end, the Greeks did raise $57,000 for Camp Titan, and saved it from potentially being shut down. However, according to an inside source, a good chunk of the money raised was by one sorority. So what were the rest of the fraternities and sororities doing? Just look to the Facebook pages of each chapter to find out. All in all, Greek Week has the potential to be the highlight of the Greek year, and in some ways it currently is. However, with all of the vandalism, name calling, Facebook abuse and general disrespectful attitude toward competing houses, it is hard to take much of what goes on during Greek Week seriously. The Greek organizations on campus have been a longstanding source of school pride and been a respected part of the campus community. Greek Week should reflect these ideals, not take away from them.

Photos BY CHRISTA CONNELLEY/Daily Titan Photo Editor Students in sororities come together to cheer during Greek Week on April 14.

For the past two decades, the Greek community has continued the prized tradition of coming together to compete in events for the common goal to raise money for Cal State Fullerton’s philanthropy Camp Titan, a summer camp for underprivileged Orange County children. This year, the 12 IFC fraternities and Panhellenic sororities spent months practicing, recycling and fundraising for the weeklong event, raising $57,000. Despite the few people who took Greek week to the next level,by vandalizing and Facebookbashing, the goals and valuable experiences did not change. Each fraternity and sorority bonded within their own house by spending countless hours practicing for the sports tournaments, lipsync competitions and other events. They came together with respect, support and pride to send 150 children on a week-long summer getaway. You can ask any Greek and they’ll tell you one of the most important weeks of the year, aside from recruitment and rush, is Greek Week. I realize that a common stigma given to Greeks is that sororities and fraternities are filled with “drama.” However, these dif-

ferences are put aside for the chance to cheer, “CSUF go Greeks, go!” and give back to the community. It’s hard not to put aside differences when you have a common goal – especially when that goal is to help needy children by giving them an experience they’ll never forget. Greek Week is also a chance to bring the community – including parents, alumni and non-Greeks – together to show what the Greek community is really about. It’s not just about the events and partying like many assume. Yes, we know how to have a good time, but we know how to give back just the same. It’s unfair to think that a group of people as a whole are a certain way simply because of the (sometimes inaccurate) stereotype they’re given. Greeks founded Camp Titan in 1969, and the majority of camp counselors are in a fraternity or sorority. With the budget cuts, Camp Titan was at risk of being shut down this summer due to lack of funds. However, with the $57,000 that the Greek community raised this April, 150 children will be shipped off to the San Bernardino Mountains for a week of swimming, hiking, canoeing and other nature programs, hopefully inspiring a new generation of leaders. As a very wise sister of mine, Emel Shaikh, once told me, “It’s not about the competition of Greek Week, it’s about the legacy of Camp Titan.” The legacy of the philanthropic program will continue with the essential help of the Greek community during those profitable six days. After all, as Aria Nasiri of Pi Kappa Phi said, “Banners don’t distinguish anything, the other 360 days a year characterize a chapter.”

“Made from 100 percent all-natural opinion”

The world as we will know it by April Ehrlich

Daily Titan Features Editor opinion@dailytitan.com

I’ve often suggested the possibility of the world coming to an end due to a lack of resources, but never have I considered delving into the likeliness of this actually occurring. How much are we consuming? How much is the earth producing? When will we reach our peak? Right now, we’re steadying off reproduction at 6.5 billion people – but over the next 50 years, we’re expected to jump to 9 billion. Even at 6.5 billion, we’re already feeling the pain of food limitations. The price of wheat has more than tripled since 2005 and rice has gone up more than 500 percent. This phenomenon has been called the “global food crisis of 2008,” or better yet, the “perpetual food crisis.” Livestock itself has become a huge problem. In addition to cow farts producing methane gas, as noted in my last column, their calorie yield hardly makes up one fifth the grain used to feed them. Basically, you are throwing away 80 percent of the calories you could be eating if you ate grains instead of eating helpless, methane-farting cows. Perhaps we should give Meatless Mondays another go? But, eventually, we’re also going to run out of land to grow that wheat on, since we’re farming about 80 percent of the arable land on this planet. Basically, we still need to find

of the Chicago lake. Not to mention that its construction costs would outweigh its benefits. So, what now? We’re facing a decade that closely resembles that of the 1970s: petroleum shortages, high-priced food, a war, and a sudden green movement. Eventually, everything subsided – that is, gas and food became affordable, the war ended and everybody forgot about the Earth as they bebopped into a consumerist world of 1980s station wagons and mega malls.

But now we are facing a more serious problem with depletion, this time regarding a resource that can’t be replaced, vertical farm or not. That’s right, the earth’s oil supply will eventually run out, and here we are giving 42,000 gallons a day to the ocean in the Gulf of Mexico. Geez, what a gift. The ocean gives us shrimp, and we give it an endless supply of an irreplaceable resource. The ocean should consider itself lucky! If you’ve ever learned about the Hubbert Peak Theory, you’d know that oil depletion should occur before 2050. That’s only 40 years away, so if you’re a 20-something like me, good luck trying to retire peacefully. The Oil Peak Theory is backed by the vast majority of scientists and energy economists, and according to the theory, we’re very close to that peak point right now, if it hasn’t already passed. Even the more positive estimations say we might be a maximum of 10 years from the peak at current projections. If you aren’t convinced yet, check out the “Life After the Oil Crash” website, which draws together a scary yet very real range of convictions. Although the current green movement we’re experiencing may just be a replication of the past, we can’t afford to forget about it this time. Alternative resources need to be considered, or maybe we should start looking for another planet to exploit.

Titan alumna making waves on the field By james gobee

Daily Titan Staff Writer sports@dailytitan.com

photo courtesy mattbrown.com Former CSUF goalkeeper Karen Bardsley holds numerous Titan career records.

Former Titan goalkeeper Karen Bardsley currently plays for the New Jersey Sky Blue FC in the Women’s Professional Soccer league and women’s England National Team. Bardsley was born in Santa Monica, Calif., but grew up in Chino Hills, Calif., and began playing soccer at 5 years old for the American Youth Soccer Organization. At 11 years old, she played club for the Chino Hills Nightmares for four years and moved to the So Cal Blues when she was 17. Bardsley – who holds numerous school records – played for Cal State Fullerton from 2002-06 and lettered all four years. In 2002, she was named the Big West Conference Freshman of the Year because of her 88 saves (.846 save percentage) and her three shutouts. “Coming in as a freshman, we were expected to do the same and take over the Big West Conference, which we really failed to do until about 2005,” Bardsley said. For Bardsley, the honors piled up during her freshman year. Bardsley was also named to the Soccer Buzz Freshman All-American second team, All-West Region second team, West Region All-Freshman team and the All-Big West second team.

“The team always kept improving with extremely driven players,” Bardsley said. In 2003, she was asked to play with the England women’s under-19 national team in the European Championship. Even though she was born in the United States, her parents emigrated from England and she went on to play for the England under-21 women’s national soccer team. “It was great that my family back in England got to see me play,” Bardsley said. “I remember when we were playing against Germany in Germany, and then I had to fly to Portland to play with CSUF the next day.” Bardsley’s sophomore season was interrupted – after playing only 28 minutes in the season – due to a broken leg against the University of Washington in the second half at the Portland Nike Invitational. “That changed a lot of things for me and that pretty much ended my season,” Bardsley said. “2004 came around, I hit some speed bumps and roadblocks in my rehab, which made my time off due to injury longer than expected, but then I came back and played about halfway through the season and I was still able to pick up the rhythm again.” In her third season, Bardsley came back as a redshirt sophomore and it seemed like nothing had ever changed. Bardsley was named Big West Conference Goalkeeper of the Year

and an All-Big West First Team honoree, even though she missed the first eight games of the season while recovering from her broken leg. In the 2004 season, Bardsley had a total of five shutouts that season and a 0.71 save percentage. Coaches and teammates all noticed Bardsley’s improvement as a player, which helped set an example for teammates. “Karen’s game has only improved over the years and it was an honor to play with her at CSUF,” said former teammate Erica Pryor, current assistant coach for Soka University of America. “She made me want to be a better player.” In 2005, as a redshirt junior, Bardsley also set single-season CSUF records for goals against average (.64), shutouts (10) and tied the mark for most minutes played in a season (1,820). “Every time we stepped out onto the field, we knew what we were going to get and it was a great team to play with. We blew the Big West away that year,” Bardsley said. She was named the Big West Goalkeeper of the Year after having 16-4 overall record. In her senior year, she was playing with virtually a new squad, but still managed to play to the best of her ability and was named Big West Conference Goalkeeper of the Year for the third consecutive year. “Karen had a phenomenal career and much of the success in 2005

and 2006 was definitely related to her contributions to the team,” said former CSUF women’s soccer Head Coach Ali Khosroshahin, who is currently the USC women’s soccer head coach. Bardsley holds many records at CSUF, not only for a single-season record, but for collegiate career totals in victories (47), goals-against average (0.84), saves (312) and minutes played (6,395). She ended her Titan career in 2006 and left behind a list of all-time records that still stand to this day. Bardsley’s career did not end at CSUF, but continued to expand. In March 2009, Bardsley shut out Northern Ireland 4-0 in the Algarve Cup. Her success in the Algarve cup added to the long list of reasons to be drafted to the WPS. Bardsley was drafted as the 18th overall pick to the Sky Blue FC in 2009, where she only made four starts and later that same year her team went on to become the WPS champions. Bardsley kicked off the 2010 season opener in goal for the defending champion Sky Blue FC with a 1-0 shutout over the Chicago Red Stars on April 11. “My main goal is the World Cup for England and hopefully the Olympics,” Bardsley said. “Everyone wants to play on the world’s stage at the highest level possible, and that’s what the World Cup is.”

Tennis postseason play starts By oscar romero

Daily Titan Staff Writer sports@dailytitan.com

The Cal State Fullerton women’s tennis team headed to Indian Wells to face UC Riverside in the first round of the Big West Conference championships today at 3 p.m. “We have just played (UC Riverside) and beat them pretty easily, so we’re hoping to do the same again,” said junior Erin Wiesener. With a win in the first the round, the Titans will then face the No. 1 seeded Long Beach State in the quarterfinals. The 49ers are also attempting to make a run at a seventh consecutive Big West title. CSUF is heading to the tournament with a two-match winning streak and has taken a different approach in their game plan. “We talked a lot about mental games and mentally preparing for

the match,” said freshman Malorie dela Cruz. The Titans hope to win the tournament, but face the difficulty of playing the 49ers, who boast a 8-0 record in Big West play and 11-3 overall with their last loss in conference play coming in March 1, 2007. Since 2006, the 49ers have been 37-1 against Big West opponents. “They (Long Beach) are really strong altogether,” said freshman Monica Rodriguez. “They beat us pretty bad last time, but we are still going to try our best,” Wiesener said. Leading the team is freshman Tiffany Mai, with six wins as the team’s No.1 singles player and Rodriguez with four in the No. 2 spot. Adding to the firepower is dela Cruz in the No. 3 position, who enters the tournament on a threematch winning streak and four total wins on the season.

Mai and Rodriguez racked up six wins this season in doubles as the No. 1 position. “We actually been working on a lot of doubles,” Rodriguez said. “We are pretty confident.” “I just trained really hard and focus on consistency,” said dela Cruz. “Everything’s working on the right time.” They enter the tournament as an eighth seed and face No. 9 Highlanders in a wild card game. The tournament features a knockout style, with teams moving along with every win. The Titans have faced the Highlanders in the opening rounds of the tournament in the previous two years, both resulting in losses. CSUF has had a difficult season, losing 12 matches in a row. However, they ended the regular season on a high note with a close win over Cal State Bakersfield and a dominating victory over UCR.

Despite a tough season, the tennis team has a positive outlook for the future. The CSUF tennis team is a young group with only one se-

nior and nine underclassmen. Most of the team lacks the experience in collegiate athletics. “Hopefully (I will) be better be-

cause I will have one year under my belt,” Rodriguez said. The women’s tournament will run through May 2.
