Johnson: Waste your vote on me Uni. selects new admins for DKU by Alex Prezioso THE CHRONICLE

Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson asked voters to waste their ballot on him in the November election. The former New Mexico governor, wearing jeans and a T-shirt with a peace sign underneath his blazer, spoke Thursday evening at Duke’s Reynolds Theater in a campaign tour that includes visits to 15 college campuses across the country. Johnson is currently on the ballot in 48 states and the District of Columbia. Johnson called on Americans to reconsider supporting the two mainstream candidates, President Barack Obama and Republican opponent Mitt Romney, during his speech and a press conference held prior to the event. “We all hope that Santa Claus is still coming,” Johnson said. “And you know what, it’s not gonna happen. We gotta do this ourselves.” Johnson emphasized that he is in the race to win. In spite of the struggle to earn debate access and media attention, Johnson has the support of roughly 5 percent of the country according to various polls. “The wave just needs to come rolling in the middle of October,” he said. “And believe me… I know how to surf. I’ll catch the wave.” In the election process, Johnson hopes

Riots in Tunisia: The U.S. embassy staff in Tunis, Tunisia evacuated Sept. 14 amidst deadly riots sweeping that nation and the Middle East, but recent graduate Dania Toth stayed in Sousse, Tunisia. Toth, Trinity ’12, moved there days after graduation to serve as coordinator at the American Corner Sousse, an educational and cultural center in Tunisia hosted by AMIDEAST, one of the Middle East’s biggest American nonprofits, and funded by the State Department. The Chronicle’s Jack Mercola and Danielle Muoio asked her about her experience with recent turmoil and rioting in the region.

As chancellor—a largely ceremonial position—Liu will act as the external face of DKU, and Bullock, a U.S.-China relations scholar, will be the chief academic and executive leader. Additionally, Nora Bynum was appointed vice provost for DKU and China initiatives.

DUKE IT OUT

On foreign policy: Obama v. Romney

In the wake of the tragic assault on the U.S. consulate in Libya, President Barack Obama has demonstrated his tact as the leader of the nation. “Obama and his administration fulfilled the role of Mournerin-Chief and Spokesman-forthe-Country,” said political science professor Peter Feaver. Barack Obama Although unable to attend the memorial service held in Tripoli for Ambassador Chris Stevens and the three security guards, the president gave eulogies that expressed his sincere condolences and the importance of their service. “They exemplified America’s commitment to freedom, justice and partnership with nations and people around the globe,” Obama told reporters. There have been speculations, however, that the Obama administration may have been warned about the assaults. According to The Independent, senior diplomatic sources have indicated that the U.S. State Department received credible intelligence about potential attacks on American missions 48 hours prior to the events, but did not issue warnings. White House spokesman Jay Carney denied these allegations, saying the administration was not aware of any intelligence indicating imminent plans for the Benghazi attack. Despite the turbulence in the Middle East, and the first death of a U.S. ambassador in the line of duty since 1979, Obama has thus far remained relatively unscathed in the eyes of the electorate with this incident, said Pope Mac McCorkle, associate professor of the practice of public policy.

Although Obama faces the hot seat for the turbulence in the Middle East, Romney has failed to capitalize on the potentially advantageous situation, McCorkle said. Some have criticized Romney’s reaction to the assault on the U.S. consulate in Libya, claiming he tactlessly turned a tragic event into a partisan issue. His handling of Mitt Romney the situation, they note, raises concerns about his qualifications to assume the role of commander-in-chief. Such contentions are unfounded, said political science professor Peter Feaver, though he added that Romney’s ability to offer solace may not match that of Obama’s. “Anti-Romney critics were wrong to claim that Romney’s less than satisfying performance… called into question his capacity to be an effective commander-inchief,” he said. “But they had a legitimate point that Romney has a way to go before he can be as effective a consoler-in-chief as Obama.” In such tragic events, Americans look to their leaders for a firm, nonpartisan response, McCorkle said. Romney’s response, a partisan attack just fourteen hours after the assault, undermined much of the political advantage he stood to gain from the situation. He added that Romney could have better capitalized on the situation had he more explicitly expressed his grief in the wake of the attack. “Romney missed an opportunity… he could have opened up a wound or created a target against Obama,” McCorkle said. “He jumped too soon to the political.”

First online course launches Monday by Nourhan Elsayed THE CHRONICLE

Duke will officially offer its first online course Monday. The Academic Council, led by Chair Susan Lozier, professor of physical oceanography, discussed the University’s growing involvement in online learning platforms at the council’s first meeting of the year Thursday. Duke’s first online course—hosted by Coursera, a California-based online education company—is set to launch Sept. 24, with a course titled Bioelectricity: a Quantitative Approach. The course will be taught by Roger Barr, AndersonRupp professor of biomedical engineering. Ten Duke courses are currently listed on the site, scheduled to be launched throughout the course of the academic year. “[The initiative is an] adventure in space—a rocket without a delivery platform,” Lozier said. Although the program has enthusiastic faculty support, the future of online education is unpredictable, she added. The Coursera partnership, annouced in July, has developed

rapidly, Provost Peter Lange noted. Duke is one of 33 universities offering courses, which span multiple departments. Professors have been working with the Center for Instructional Technology and the Office of Information Technology to design course activities. Lange outlined four distinct functions of the initiative of online education. These include the opportunity to accelerate innovation in teaching, enhance impersonal learning, develop a substitute for the in-person experience and increase access to higher education. “This is a very, very dynamic era,” Lange said. Lange mentioned that the ultimate benefit of the Coursera initiative is still unknown. There are more than 230,000 students enrolled in Duke courses, which do not offer formal credit or a degree. Lange noted that students’ work ethic cannot be monitored. The University is currently not profiting from the endeavor, so the current program offers few tangible rewards. SEE COUNCIL ON PAGE 7

When the campaign’s Tumblr first hit the internet, it was met with more attention than the creators had anticipated, both positive and negative. “I was writing a paper and I couldn’t stop looking at the Facebook page,” Gonzalez said. “I couldn’t stop looking at the page because there were these horrible, horrible things being commented.” Gonzalez noted that a particular group of international bodybuilders launched an effort to flood the website with mocking imitation photos, such as one reading: “I need feminism because my dick doesn’t suck itself.” But the campaign also received support from students and others interested in the subject. “What made me keep coming back to the page was that SEE FEMINISM ON PAGE 8

Critiquing Zionism: a Q&A with Peter Beinart ended along this line that we call the armistice line. You had then the West Bank after 1949 controlled by Jordan, the Gaza Strip controlled by Egypt and the Golan Heights controlled by Syria. After 1967 Israel had another war and won those territories—they took Sinai and Gaza from Egypt, took the West Bank from Jordan and the Golan Heights from Syria. They gave Sinai back to Egypt in the Camp David agreements, but in the Golon Heights and West Bank and Gaza, Israel still remains in ongoing power.

THE CHRONICLE

Journalist Peter Beinart has a long history of expertise in foreign relations. A Rhodes Scholar, he earned an master’s degree in international relations from Oxford University, and, in his career as a journalist for The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and other outlets, he was a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations from 2007 to 2009. He served as editor of The New Republic for seven years and now edits the Open Zion blog at the Daily Beast. Beinart discussed his newest book, “The Crisis of Zionism,” at Duke Thursday. The Chronicle’s Julian Spector spoke with him about his critique of the Israeli occupation, visions for the future of the peace process and what to do as an aspiring journalist. The Chronicle: What is the moral crisis you argue that Israel is facing? Peter Beinart: Israel doesn’t have a constitution, but its Declaration of Independence promises that it will be a Jewish state that offers complete equality of social and political rights in respect to race, religion and sex. That declaration comes out of a liberal enlightenment sensibility that was an important part of the Zionist movement, and important to the Zionist movement and Theodore Hertzel was the idea that a Jewish state could embody some of the values that Europe had to failed to embody for Jews. There’s a tension between that vision of equality and the idea of a state that offers representation and protection to one people, the Jewish people. But my

But in 1967, Israel takes the West Bank and the Gaza Strip and takes control of these areas and creates a second non-democratic Israel where only Jews have citizenship and the right to vote. That’s now been the case for 45 years and when that becomes permanent, it’s really becomes hard to talk about Israel as a democratic Jewish state. I ultimately believe that the Zionist project it-

self, if it can’t remain a democratic project, then it can’t survive at all. If Israel becomes one non-democratic Jewish state encompassing the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, then ultimately it’ll be transformed into a bi-national state and ultimately the entire Zionist dream of self determination will collapse. The book is really about that and the lack of American-Jewish response to that. TC: Just to clarify, what is the Green Line? PB: The Green Line is the name for the armistice line.

TC: Is democracy is a necessary component of Zionism? PB: Yes, I think so. Frankly, it is stated as such in Israel’s founding document. But also, simply as a practical matter in today’s world. In today’s post-colonial world that we live, it’s simply not possible to indefinitely hold millions of people as non-citizens without the right to vote, without due process, by virtue of the fact that they are the wrong ethnicity. You may be able to do it for a while, but sooner or later the Israel in that scenario becomes such a pariah in the world that ultimately the world will force it and with Palestinian support will succeed in overhauling the edifice of the Jewish state and turning it into what would be in theory a binational state but in reality would really be an Arab state. TC: Is that like a South Africa situation?

PB: If you look at the people who support the one state solution, their vision is entirely formed by South Africa. They believe that Israel is an apartheid state throughout and that Zionism is entirely discriminatory and the entire edifice needs to be overthrown. I disagree with that, and I think the Zionism project is important. But I think that the occupation ultimately is the path toward the death of Israel’s existence as a Jewish state as a whole. TC: So you would say that Zionism is not racist but the occupation is? PB: There’s a tension between the idea of liberal democracy and a state that has a special responsibility to a certain ethnic or religious group, but Israel is not the only country that confronts this. You have England and the European contries with crosses on their flags or preferential immigration policies, but we don’t have a problem calling them democracies. Israel can still retain some Jewish public symbolism and a sense of obligation for Jewish safety around the world, as embodied by the policy of right of return—where Jews in distress will always have a place to return to—and still actually build upon the rights that it offers its own Palestinian citizens and deepen them further and deal with some of SEE BEINART ON PAGE 7

Johnson has focused his campaign on young people and he highlighted important causes and solutions. Students are graduating with loans they cannot afford and are paying expensive Medicare and Medicaid costs. “College students, young people right now, are screwed,” he said. “The worst of all—you are the ones that are putting your lives on the line.” Johnson said young people will suffer the most from wars abroad and poor economic policy. “I, if I was a young person,

would revolt,” he said. For Patrick Willets, an undergraduate student at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, the economy is the most important issue in this election. He acknowledges that Johnson needs to overcome the lack of name recognition in order to be elected. “Gary Johnson actually has more governing experience than Mitt Romney and more than Barack Obama had when he ran for president,” Brad Hessel, a business consultant in Raleigh, added. Hessel, like others in the audience, began to support Johnson after Rep. Ron Paul, R-Tx., failed to earn his way onto the Republican ticket. Ethan Butler, a junior at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, noted, if Johnson continues to emphasize on the legalization of marijuana, he might become known as the “weed president.” For Butler, sensible foreign policy is the most important issue in this election. He plans to vote for Johnson in November. Whether he wins or loses this election, Johnson’s campaign looks to open up a political discourse that calls into question significant and often shared beliefs of the two major parties. But Johnson remains cautiously optimistic for 2012. “If everyone will waste their vote on Gary Johnson, I’ll be the next president of the United States,” Johnson said.

DKU from page 1 forward with academic and strategic planning. Administrators are in the process of preparing the application for establishment approval, which allows the campus to open its doors for students. The process of receiving establishment approval could take more than one year, but administrators hope to be able to offer academic programs starting Fall 2014. In several months, there will be a ceremony to formally announce the preparation approval in China, Provost Peter Lange said at Thursday’s Academic Council meeting. Lange added that some of the upcoming goals for DKU administrators are to hire faculty and register the campus as an independent entity with its own Board of Trustees. Campus construction slowed down in the Spring due to a “dispute,” Lange said. But the city of Kunshan, who is footing the bill for construction, has asserted that the first five buildings will be completed by July 2013. A member of the Chinese Academy of Engineering and the Science and Technology Commission of China’s Ministry of Education, Liu has been key lecturer on the global level. He is also vice chair of the Hubei Association for Science and Technology and vice

director of Hubei Communications Society. Under his leadership from 2003 to 2008, Wuhan University has become more well-known for its academic programs and student lift and recently reformed financial management, according to the release. Bullock’s position as executive vice chancellor means that she will be responsible for the design and delivering of top-quality academic programs at the institution. A senior scholar at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, Bullock served as the director of its Asia Program, and as a distinguished visiting professor of China studies at Emory University from 2007 to 2012. She is currently the chair of the China Medical Board and as a director of the Henry Luce Foundation, the National Committee on U.S.–China Relations, the Asia Foundation and the Harvard-Yenching Institute. “With the additions of Chancellor Liu and Executive Vice Chancellor Bullock, we have created a senior leadership team that is uniquely qualified to carry out our guiding vision of DKU as an elite global institution,” President Richard Brodhead said in a press release. “Their combined experience as leaders in higher education in China and the U.S. will provide the necessary expertise to move DKU forward.”

TUNISIA from page 1 point us definitively towards leaving. TC: What do you do at the American Corner Sousse? How has your work been shaped by recent rioting? DT: I am the coordinator of the American Corner Sousse, an educational and cultural center in Tunisia’s third largest city. My job is to run activities based on English language development, American culture, applying to American universities and other scholarship grants to the United States, and basically getting to run whatever I want: debate team, improv classes, creative writing classes and anything else I can think of. I also maintain the English language library and other resources. There are hundreds of American Corners around the world funded by the U.S. State Department partnered with another nonprofit organization. As for how our events have been shaped, I work very closely with the embassy, which means that all my work with them has been suspended until they come back. Also, check your news Friday: we’re closing everything here and in Tunis because we expect many protests to occur, and we don’t want to take chances. Americans in Sousse, where I live, largely do not feel in danger. We live in a peaceful area, and most of them are married to Tunisians. In Tunis, I imagine they’re feeling much more apprehensive, especially given the embassy presence has left. Success of extremist behavior depends on encouragement from the local population. In Tunisia in general, and especially the town I live in, such behavior is very shocking, and it would be very socially unacceptable to house or supply militants. In other places, like Afghanistan? Not so much.

THE CHRONICLE

TC: Has the media inaccurately portrayed anything about the protests in the Middle East? DT: These riots are not caused by basic religious piety, period. Most articles that try to draw conclusions from these tragic events either infer that the Islamic religion is the driving force for the violence, or take the opposite, apologist approach: that Islam has nothing to do with the riots at all. Neither is true. Outrage from this [American-made film that is offensive to Muslims] or these cartoons is absolutely the trigger for these protests: one taxi driver in Tunis tried to describe the pain and rage this film caused for him by telling me, “You can violate my wife, you can violate my children, but don’t you dare violate my Prophet. He, and Islam, are my greatest love, it is my heart. If you are not Muslim, you do not understand that.” It’s not surprising to me then, that in the Middle East there is also a very active “outrage industry”—a term coined by Salman Rushdie—that will seize on these events to make it seem like all Muslims are united in violence and anger. From what I have seen, heard, and studied, Arab countries have faced a lot of hardship: colonization, war, dictatorial rule and high poverty rates that mean unemployment, stringent restrictions on starting a business and acquiring capital, and lower standards of living. Religious extremism here, like it does anywhere, builds up around these kinds of factors. Islam is not the reason for the violence: many Arabs, regardless of religion, have very real grievances against the United States that can be easy to nudge into action, especially if you can’t find a job—reading today, Tunisia’s unemployment stands at 11.5 percent. So then, why do Arabs seem more prone to violence, even when there may be high

unemployment around the world? Every society has its small and vocal underclass of religious extremists. The one in many Arab countries is simply large, more vocal and easier to recruit. The biggest lesson I’ve learned here, especially from the vast majority of Tunisians who have the same impression of this “Innocence of Muslims” film as most Americans do, is that religion is never, ever an independent impetus. It’s simply not a good enough explanation, and opinion columnists who try to draw that conclusion should feel ashamed of themselves. TC: Why do you think these inaccuracies are reported this way? DT: The thing about Middle Eastern news reporting is that it usually falls into two camps. The first is the urgent flare-ups when violence or other security-related events occur. The other type is an attempted characterization of its people as either helpless or, patronizingly, “pulling themselves up and embracing democracy”. The problem with the first, sporadic type of reporting is that, while it is important, once Americans read about a riot or a bombing, we then move on to forgetting about the Middle East. It may sound simple, but Americans have largely not been able to internalize the fact that once a protest is over, people in Arab countries still live their lives every day. They fix their cars and go to coffee shops and try to make it home on time for family dinners. They take days at the beach and wait for college acceptance letters. They’re always going to be there, and they deserve our respect just for being alive and in the world whether it’s in our political interest or not, or whether or not something makes interesting news or not. TC: Having lived in the region, what’s

your opinion of U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East? DT: I believe the biggest reason that American foreign policy in the Middle East, no matter what it may be, is very weak because we have inconsistent positions. We supported their dictators, but then we didn’t. We give them aid, then we threaten to take it away for good. We say a country is an ally, and then we say it’s an enemy, and then we say it’s neither. We use a local doctor to help us capture Osama bin Laden, and then we leave him out to dry when the Pakistani government throws him in jail for life. Given the tendency to extremism that is present in these populations, if people want to support the U.S., we need to have their backs with unwavering political support, fortitude and amiable patience, aid that invests in future prosperity, and a strong articulation of what we value most and why we value it. Let people take it or leave it. For example, my personal opinion about this recent film is that we should support free speech. Full stop. President Obama and Secretary Clinton said the exact same thing in their statements. TC: What would you tell Duke students about living in the Middle East post-graduation? DT: I love what I do and I love where I am. I don’t think I could have found a better job after graduation. I would always insist that people who feel stuck in a corner about their ability to find jobs after graduation should consider coming abroad. Sometimes people do have real constraints and responsibilities that require them to stay in the U.S., but other times, it can be just a matter of whether you want to get outside your comfort zone, and whether or not you’re too scared to leave the nest and your regular bars. Trust me: you can find beer everywhere.

And I believe in that project because I believe in the value of having Jewish self-determination, but the project is very much threatened by the existence of the non-democratic part of the Jewish state, in which you don’t offer Palestinians citizenship and the right to vote. If you were to, then Israel would likely cease to be a Jewish state by simple weight of demographics because you’d be enfranchising millions of Palestinians who would not want to live under a Jewish state.

Lange noted that the courses last for different periods of time are presented differently, because Coursera does not provide rigid guidelines for their format. “This [flexible structure] will come back to challenge us on our campus,” Lange said.

TC: Are there more Palestinians than there are Jews? PB: If you include Gaza and the West Bank and Israel inside the Green Line, it’s probably getting close to roughly equal at this point. TC: What would you envision as the two-state solution? PB: Bill Clinton laid out a set of parameters at the end of 2000. It was basically the Green Line—the 1967 line—with some small land swaps and Israel controlling the Jewish neighborhoods in east Jerusalem but Palestinians having a capital in the Palestinian parts of Jerusalem, which is beyond the Green Line, some international force in the Jordan Valley between the Palestinian state and the rest of the Arab world, compensation for Palestinian refugees and some statement of recognition for their suffering as a result of the Israeli war of independence, but only small scale resettlement into Israel itself. TC: Why don’t you think there can be a single state solution? PB: There are definitely people who have that point of view, who say, ‘Why can’t everyone just live together in one state?’ I think it would be a binational state because it would have two nations. The problem is, it’s unrealistic and utopian. You have to imagine how these two peoples who have been at war for years will form a single army, for instance. And that you’ll be able to have a Palestinian neighborhood that would trust itself to be protected by the Jewish brigade, and vice versa. I think it would be a recipe for civil war. It would be a little bit like Iraq in 2005-2006: rival militias under one flag. Plus, the original experience of Israel’s creation that resulted in 800,000 Palestinian refugees leaving has to all get relitigated if you have one state where people are going to return. If you have a Palestinian state to return to, then you don’t have to reopen this enormously difficult and perhaps impossible can of worms to undo, which is that Palestinians want to go back to towns and homes and villages that no longer exist. Binationalism is very difficult to make work. Czechoslovakia tried this and even it split between the Czechs and Slovaks, and that was under much more placid circumstances. TC: What do you see as the long term role for the United States if our involvement still doesn’t succeed in forging peace there? PB: America’s power has been based in part in the idea that we were the only actor that could bring peace, partly because of our general power, partly because of our unique relationship with Israel. The Europeans have always hung back and followed America’s lead and to some degree America’s Middle Eastern allies did that as well. The problem is those actors feel that America’s power is diminishing in general, and that America hasn’t delivered. It seems to me the Palestinians have largely given up on the U.S. It’s quite possible you’ll see more independent regional actors. Egypt now has a government that’s no longer really a U.S. client, Turkey’s more independent of the U.S. than it used to be, and the Europeans over time will likely pursue their own efforts if they don’t feel like the U.S. is leading them anywhere. So it’s possible you’ll see these groups pushing a different agenda. I hope it will be an agenda that leads to a two-state solution. It will probably be an agenda in which there are fewer carrots for Israel and more sticks, because the political climate in these countries is significantly less sympathetic to Israel. These countries will probably try some way to put pressure on Israel. There’s been more talk in Europe of some kind of boycott of settlement goods. The Palestinian Authority is being paid for in large part by the Europeans. If they said we don’t want to pay for this anymore, that would put a lot of pressure on Israel because it would create chaos in the West Bank and force Israel to pay the price of controlling the West Bank in a way it’s not doing now. TC: What’s the way out? PB: It’s really important for Americans to go experience Israel and experience Palestinian life, so they understand the ethical issues involved in the Israeli occupation. You also need to change the incentive structure. Right now, Israelis are incentivized to move to the West Bank and deepen the occupation. We need to think of ways to create different incentive structures. That’s why I think we should spend our money inside Israel but not on goods produced in the West Bank.

FISH OIL from page 1 taking omega-3 fatty acid supplements by compiling the data of 20 clinical trials from 1989 to 2012. The review study examined results from more than 68,000 people, concluding that there is not a statistically significant association between taking omega-3 supplements and prevention of cardiac-related deaths. “Omega-3 fatty acid is rare in most foods, so the typical American does not get their required weekly amount,” said Dr. Ronald Sha, medical director at the Duke Diet and Fitness Center. “The idea is that we can give a pill to people so that they can get the necessary nutrients, but emerging studies show that taking a pill is very different from eating the food.” Vitamin supplements cannot replace good health habits, said Elisabetta Politi, nutrition director at the center. Programs at Duke encourage people to eat healthier and exercise more. The patients at the center have the option to participate in outpatient consulta-

tions, weight control programs and fitness programs. “We’re trying to prove that there is nothing better than eating right and living a healthy lifestyle,” Politi said. “Lifestyle changes are hard, so we discuss with our clients to see what they are willing to do—it’s a gradual process.” Omega-3 fatty acids are most commonly found in fatty fish such as salmon, tuna, herring and mackerel. The average person should consume seven ounces of fatty fish per week, according to the American Heart Association. Despite the publication of this study, as well as several other studies refuting the benefits of fish oil supplements, the business is still booming. Americans spent $1.1 billion on omega-3 supplements last year, a 5.4 percent jump from 2010, according to the Nutrition Business Journal. In fact, a recent government study showed that half of U.S. adults take vitamins or other dietary supplements. “I used to recommend eating fish oil supplements to my clients, but since these studies have come out, I no

longer do,” Sha said. “The ideal thing is that we help people develop healthy lifestyle changes, instead of trying to give them a supplement.” Some researchers still debate the effects of fish oil, said Christine Tenekjian, clinical dietitian at the center. It is difficult to judge whether supplements are beneficial with the current amount of available data. “It seems that people just want to isolate a component out of a particular food because of its perceived health benefits,” Tenekjian said. “Sure, you can get nutrients from a pill, but it won’t matter if you end up eating unhealthy foods along with it.” Tenekjian noted that she was not surprised by the findings of this study because even though it is true that omega-3 fatty acid has been observed to lower tryglyceride levels, there have also been studies that show that the fish oil pills have no effect. “My dad tells me that I should take fish oil supplements because it’s supposed to be healthy,” said sophomore Kevin Wu. “It’s interesting how it doesn’t work even though my dad is such a big fan of it.”

FEMINISM from page 3 [it] wasn’t trying to describe what feminism was,” said a student from Singapore in attendance. “My society is relatively patriarchal, so every time a guy popped up and posted something, it was very new to me.” The students have also had to deal with the often debated issue of the effectiveness of online activism. Seidman said that her opinion, which previously leaned towards the negatives of online activism, has now changed with the response to the “Who Needs Feminism?” project. “Much of what young women are writing about would be difficult to fix through policy or politics,” she said. “Much of it is about changing hearts and minds.” The venture was inspired by the final project for Seidman’s Women in the Public Sphere class. The only two guidelines for the assignment were that it had to promote social change and be something the undergraduates were very interested in. The group began to discuss gender differences at the University and from there the idea sparked. “We wanted to detach the negative stigma that existed with feminism,” Tsai said.

Blue Devils held to draw in overtime against Maryland

Duke hosts No. 1 rival UNC

by Rooshil Shah THE CHRONICLE

The Blue Devils showed great solidarity in fighting their way to a draw. Duke (7-2-1, 1-1-1 in ACC) battled its way to a 2-2 draw against No. 17 Maryland (6-2-2, 2-0-1 in ACC) in an ACC matchup at Koskinen Stadium Thursday evening. It was a game of two halves characterized by No. 4 Duke’s comeback twice from a goal behind. “We showed great character,” head coach Robbie Church said. “One point is cruel when you see our team’s 22 shots at goal compared to the opponent’s eight. We need to finish better, we had momentum after our first equalizer but couldn’t find that second goal.” Sophomore Kelly Cobb, who played in the U-20 World Cup in Japan earlier this year, returned to the lineup after suffering a knee injury. In a game between two strong teams Maryland started the game brightly and they took the lead with a strike from Hayley Brock early on in the 10th minute. A long through ball from the center back Domenica Hodak slipped by the Duke defense and Brock broke away to latch onto the pass and score past senior goalkeeper Tara Campbell. Despite hints of offside in the goal, the referee waved play on much to the chagrin of the Duke home crowd. The Blue Devils came close to equalizing a couple of times in the first half but were unable to find the ball. As a con-

Her goal sparked the Blue Devils into action and they dominated the next 15 minutes. “I was able to find that far post.... It was a shot that I have been practicing for a while now in training,” Weinberg said.

The nation’s greatest college rivalry is coming to Jack Katz Stadium—along with the nation’s top ranked field hockey team.

FOOTBALL

Memphis game offers opportunity for victory by Mike Schreiner THE CHRONICLE

More than anything, the Blue Devils will be focused on themselves when they take the field Saturday against Memphis, one of the worst teams in Division I football. Saturday’s contest in Wallace Wade is the last non-conference Memphis game for Duke before they begin a tough vs. ACC schedule, which Duke also means this is likely the last time the Blue Devils will be favored SATURDAY, 6 p.m. this season. In addition Wallace Wade Stadium to viewing it as an opportunity for Duke’s third win of the season, head coach David Cutcliffe considers Saturday’s game a chance to better understand the identity of his team. “A lot of things are happening on offense to figure out,” Cutcliffe said. “We had a certain personnel, a certain grouping in mind [for the season]… and it hasn’t quite happened that way. We don’t have a preseason and so part of

this is kind of figuring out [which player] is going to do what best.” Duke’s 54-17 trouncing of an overmatched N.C. Central squad last week allowed the Blue Devils to recapture a winning record but made a true evaluation of the team’s play difficult. Cutcliffe will likely face a similar scenario this week, as Memphis has dropped its first three games against Tennessee-Martin, Arkansas State and Middle Tennessee State and is ranked as the third worst team in the country by ESPN.com. But Cutcliffe is still focused on not falling into the fatal trap that is complacency, a mistake he admits he allowed his team to make after its win over FIU last month. “I think we have taken a much more realistic view of what we are doing when we evaluate ourselves,” Cutcliffe said. “When you’re in the shoes that we are, I haven’t seen [a game] yet that wasn’t must-win…. We are going to have to play very well to win any game we play.” SEE FOOTBALL ON PAGE 11

Blue Devils face Triangle rivals by Jackie Klauberg THE CHRONICLE

Duke has scored five goals in the past two games, and is looking to continue its pattern of success Friday. by Rooshil shah THE CHRONICLE

Fresh off a 2-0 win over Clemson last week, the Blue Devils (3-3-0, 1-1-0 in the ACC) will be looking to continue their recent success in an away game against Wake Forest (4-1-2, 0-0-2 in the ACC) at the Spry Stadium. After its midweek home game against UNC Greensboro this past Tuesday was cancelled, Duke, which has won three No. 16 out of its last four games, is lookDuke ing forward to Friday’s game. vs. “We’ve scored five goals in our Wake past two games,” head coach John Forest Kerr said. None more so than keeper FRIDAY, 7 p.m. Spry Stadium James Belshaw, whose major role in the past two Duke shutout victories resulted in him being recognized as the NSCAA National Player of the Week in addition to being awarded the ACC player of the week. “He’s been outstanding—his game-changing saves against Clemson last week were huge and gave the team the strength to go on and win the game,” Kerr said. He also described Belshaw, who scored a penalty in the game against Clemson, as “a great presence [and] a great leader.” Wake Forest comes into this game having lost both

its ACC matchups so far but Kerr was cautious against being too optimistic. “They’re a top-20 team” Kerr said. “It’s going to be huge challenge for us but we’re looking forward to it. They’ve beaten some real good teams so far, so yes, it’s going to be a difficult game.” They possess a balanced team and Kerr noted that strikers Sean Okoli and Michael Gamble could be potential threats. “They’re quick on the ball, goal scorers and dangerous in the box, so we’ll have to contain them,” Kerr said. Duke will be resting its hopes on the back five to keep Wake Forest quiet and Kerr said he believes that a strong defensive performance will give the Blue Devils a much-needed offensive surge in the game. “We have some great defenders—Sebastien Ibheaga’s been in great form,” he said. Kerr feels that a continuation of this high level of play will provide Duke the platform it needs in the upcoming match. “If we can keep [our momentum going] then we have a good shot at winning this game,” he said. If Duke does manage to get on the winning end Friday, then they’ll be over .500 for the first time this season.

The gyms Friday and Sunday nights respectively will likely be painted red and baby blue, but Blue Devil head coach Jolene Nagel hopes that some of those colors can be washed out by some royal blue. All the colors of Triangle will be on display as the Blue Devils (9-3, 0-0) open up conference play this weekend with two quick trips down the road to N.C. State (12-1, 2-0 in the ACC) and North Carolina (9-2, 0-1 in the ACC) on Friday and Sunday. Nagel said she knows that the battles will not be settled quietly. Duke “N.C. State’s crowd is always a loud crowd in Reynolds’ Coliseum,” Nagel vs. said. “So I’m kind of wishing I had gotN.C. ten a bus to take Duke people to both State matches this weekend right now.” Nagel said she is aware of the chalFRIDAY, 7 p.m. lenge ahead of her team. Not only does Reynolds Coliseum N.C. State have the home-court advantage, but the team also has two conferDuke ence wins under its belt going into Friday’s match. vs. Sophomore outside hitters DariUNC yan Hopper and Nikki Glass will lead the Wolfpack. Hopper leads her team with 137 kills so far this season, and SUNDAY, 2 p.m. Glass leads the conference in terms of Carmichael Arena serving with a 50-percent rate on aces. N.C. State beat North Carolina 3-1 last weekend and swept Wake Forest Wednesday night, earning the team the No. 1 ranking in the conference. The Wolfpack currently rank first in the conference in terms of lowest opponent hitting percentage while the Tar Heels rank second. North Carolina currently sits at 0-1 in conference play. The Blue Devils will focus their hitting around the Tar Heels’ 6-foot-2 freshman middle blocker, Paige Neuenfeldt, who ranks second in the ACC in terms of blocks, averaging 1.41 blocks per set. Nagel noted that the relationship between the Blue Devils and Tar Heels is civil and courteous but definitely not warm and fuzzy. “We respect them very much, and they respect us very much, [but] once you get on the court, all bets are off,” Nagel said. “It doesn’t matter how anyone performed thus far in the season because everyone raises their level of play and we have to do that in their home environment, which is not easy.” The Blue Devils take the court Friday night coming off a 1-2 weekend in Michigan, where they suffered a 3-2 loss to then-No. 22 Michigan last Saturday before returning to Durham. “We are looking to build on our last match at Michigan,” Nagel said. “It was a great effort and we want to build on that [going into ACC play]. We’ve got to take things one match at a time.”

CROSS COUNTRY

Duke strives for points at tough meet

FOOTBALL from page 9 The Blue Devils should not have trouble putting up points against a Memphis defense that ranks 97th in the country by allowing 33.7 points per game. The real question will be whether Duke can run the ball effectively—the Blue Devils are 116th in the nation in terms of rushing yards per game despite ranking in the top 30 in terms of points scored. The team also needs to improve their play on third down after a dismal performance last week resulted in a single third down conversion in 10 attempts. Defensively, Duke will benefit from the absence of Memphis running back and Durham native Jerrell Rhodes, who will miss Saturday’s game for personal reasons. Through three games, the junior has been responsible for more than half of his team’s rushing yards. With all three of the Duke’s interceptions this season, junior cornerback Ross Cockrell leads a banged up Duke secondary that saw ex-quarterback and current utility

player Brandon Connette take snaps at safety last week. The secondary will once again try to limit big plays, as the Tigers have two explosive wide receivers—senior Marcus Rucker and sophomore Keiwone Malone—who can stretch the field and have more than 450 combined receiving yards this season. “We know that injuries are a part of football—you can’t really expect to go a full season without someone important getting hurt,” Cockrell said. “Players have to adjust to what is going on, so we have players playing multiple positions.” Despite their weaknesses, the Blue Devils should be able to cruise to their second straight home victory Saturday. For Cutcliffe, Duke’s success in the game will not be measured by the margin of victory, but by how much they learn about themselves. “I think the focus is still on Duke,” Cutcliffe said. “My whole focus is still on why [we are not having success]. Why are we not executing on third down? Why are we not running the football? Let’s fix it.”

Junior Brian Atkinson will be among those competing this weekend. by Sarah Elsakr THE CHRONICLE

Three weeks after opening their season with a win at Virginia Tech, the Blue Devil men are heading to the Panorama Farms Invitational in Charlottesville, Va. for what senior Mike Moverman called the “first true test of the season.” In sharp contrast to Duke’s first two meets, the men will face off with three nationally ranked teams Sunday—No. 4 Oklahoma, No. 21 Michigan and No.22 Arkansas. The strength of the field means that this time, the men are not just racing for personal goals, they are also trying to gain as many points as they can for their team. “Points are very hard to come by,” head coach Norm Ogilvie said, citing a finish ahead of Arkansas or Michigan and a win over the Cavaliers as the team’s top two goals. “We have a nice mix of returning veterans… and we also have some really promising new talent with us as well. So hopefully that mixture will come together and we’ll have a great day. We’ve been training extremely well. I’m optimistic.” That mixture will include runners such as junior Brian Atkinson, senior James Kostelnik and Moverman. Moverman, who missed the previous cross country and track seasons due to injury and sat out the first meet of this season, will make his return on the 8k course with the rest of the team. Despite his time off, he said he is eagerly awaiting the upcoming contest. “I just want the team to do well,” Moverman said. “I’m just going to run fast and help the team as much as I can. It’s a big meet because a lot of the teams, like Michigan and Arkansas… are obviously great teams, but they’re beatable. They’re good opportunities to score points.” Moverman noted his confidence comes from the great results that he has been seeing and experiencing in workouts. The Duke team, which suffered some surprising disappointments in the previous season, is keeping a sharp eye on its practice strategies this time around to ensure that history is not repeated. “The two teams before last year had gone to the NCAA championships,” Ogilvie said. “There was an element of [last year’s] guys wanting to prove to themselves that they were at least as good. But the truth was that they were training a little too hard. We decided this year we’d be a little smarter than that. Your mental outlook heading into the race is important…. If you go into a race feeling rested and ready to run a great race then you’re likely to do that.” Three freshmen—William Rooney, Daniel Moore and William Hague—will join Moverman and the rest of the upperclassmen this coming weekend. Although these newcomers will be running the 8k distance for the first time this season, they have already shown that they are capable of running with their strong times and top finishes in the starting meets. Despite any fatigue the longer distance causes, with the high stakes, the freshmen have more than enough motivation to power through. “Starting this weekend, the wins and losses count,” Ogilvie said.

team, they’re an attacking team, and we have to make sure we’re all on the same page regarding how we play as a defensive unit,” Bustin said. “We need to make sure we put more pressure on the ball.” On the season so far, the Tar Heels have scored 37 goals compared to the Blue Devils’ 17 and have outnumbered them in shots 184-101. Despite North Carolina’s offensive prowess, the most important part of the game will be mental. “We need to control the emotion of playing UNC,” Bustin said. “Obviously it’s a very competitive match and it’s a great rivalry, but we have to stay true to what we have to accomplish in the game, and not get caught up in the emotions of it being Duke-UNC.” And Duke cannot forget about Michigan State. The Spartans beat both American and Louisville last weekend, with sophomore Abby Barker scoring three goals. Barker is Michigan State’s lead scorer with seven goals on the season. In addition, the Spartans tout redshirt junior goalie Molly Cassidy, who was recently named the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week. Cassidy has 55 saves on the season—the most in the Big Ten. “Michigan State is a great team coming in,” Bustin said. “They have a little different style of play, but it’s one that will continue to prepare us for postseason play.” The Blue Devils remain without freshmen Aileen Johnson, Hannah Barreca and Kendra Perrin, and sophomores Abby Beltrani, Lauren Blazing and Jessica Buttinger, who are all at the Pan-American games. Junior Grace Christus will also miss the match due to injury. All are expected to return next weekend, but Duke will need to adjust against North Carolina and Michigan State in the meantime. “This is what it’s all about—to be comfortable and stay to our game plan,” Bustin said. “That way, we can adjust it so we can adapt our game plan to different opponents.”

Duke then made a string of poor passes and needlessly gave away possession as they searched for a way back into the game. And with three minutes to go, Duke’s time did come when forward Kim DeCesare smashed home the equalizer into an empty net after the Maryland keeper came out and failed to collect a high cross. Regulation time ended with the game in a stalemate. In overtime, both teams came close to grabbing the winner but left at a draw. “The team is close but not there yet,” Weinberg said. “We need to fix some things and cut out our mistakes.” Pecht, who gave a solid performance in midfield, added that the team is coming together well and is really close as they enter a critical part of their season. But as Church noted, four points out of a possible nine is not an enviable position and the hard work starts Sunday when the team returns to practice in preparation for two games next week.

apply to Common Ground already have an interest or even passion for the issues presented by the retreat. There is considerable self-selection at play. Students with the least exposure to Common Ground themes—the ones most averse or uncomfortable with the retreat’s content—are the least likely to apply. To combat this, Common Ground should target the students most wary of its mission. Common Ground has no explicit goal to affect broader social change, but it is so highprofile that it can no longer ignore its role in shaping campus dialogue. To increase its impact—and application numbers—it should actively seek out the students least inclined to talk about race, gender, sexuality and class.

The program should provide more support for participants as they transition back to Duke after the retreat. Intense experiences can produce intense friendships, but they can also alienate those who did not have those experiences, especially friends of Common Ground participants. A perception of self-righteousness impairs Common Ground’s ability to gain a broader audience. Correcting the perception is difficult, but a start would be increasing the resources and workshops available for returning participants to ensure a less difficult re-entry. Common Ground should capitalize on increasing demand to expand the amount and assortment of programming available on campus. Although constrained by fund-

ing and, more importantly, the emotional and mental energy of its facilitators, Common Ground’s high number of applications signals huge potential for growth and influence. In 2008, Common Ground grew from one to two retreats per year; perhaps the time has come for another expansion. Smaller programming options that utilize the house model and freshman orientation are other possible ways of broadening its reach. Common Ground has done phenomenal things for those students lucky enough to attend the retreat. This alone is a mighty achievement. But there is still work to be done. Common Ground should look ambitiously into the future. The potential for even greater change lies ahead.

Growing old

don’t know exactly what I expected from senior year, with those same issues, but also because they are evidence but I definitely didn’t imagine I would feel so old so of how little the college experience really changes from fast. I’m noticing less the crippling headaches and year to year.

All the talk of stumbling They remind you of something that you back home after a “totally sick party on may have forgotten but that you never West, bro” has left me feeling a bit like the completely cast from your memory. Like old dude from “Up.” At the same time, the first time you chase after a bus only the presence of the new kids affords me to get denied by the driver and watch in the opportunity to listen in on their highly disbelief as it roars away. Or the first walk entertaining frosh discussions on the C-1, jordan siedell back from Shooters after what could only which include everything from how good be described as an eye-opening (and posthe food was at Cosmic the night before words, lines and life sibly eye-searing) experience.

Last time I checked, I was safely ennow and forever) and whether the bull at Shooters is sconced in the Duke bubble and the real world seemed a completely safe (jury’s still out on that one). Listening safe distance away. The rapid shortening of that distance to complaints about how bad the Marketplace food is sometimes makes me yearn for freshman year again, if makes me smile only because I whined with the exact only so that I can have a few more “firsts” before the insame ignorance three years ago.

ince we are beginning our relationship as columnist and… columnees, I thought it would be fair to tell you a few things about myself. You know, as a way of getting to know each other. I am a sophomore, an English and history major and a lover of bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens. If you just got that “Sound of Music” reference, you’re way cooler than you know. And don’t let ANYONE tell you differently. The point of all this is to tell you my super awesome addie navarro new goal for this year (bechocoholism cause I love goals.… Don’t look at me like that, I got it from my father). Get ready. Here it is. My goal for this year is to be happy. Joyful. Blissful. Contented. Positively giddy. Sounds simple, right? It really isn’t. Though I claim to be as deliriously over-the-moon in love with this school as the next Cameron Crazie, in all honesty, it can be hard to maintain a grounded and healthy perspective amidst the constant flood of classes, extracurriculars and social events. Sometimes I just need to come up for air, slow down and reevaluate what I’m doing. This is why I’ve written the Addie Navarro Guide to Happiness (trademark pending), mainly for myself but maybe some of you will find it useful, too. Step one: honesty. It is important to be honest with yourself when figuring out what makes you happy. That sounds guidance counselor-ish, but it really is true. For a long time, I tried to make myself happy by doing what I saw a lot of other people doing. That included dressing up in tight clothing, drinking some god-awful mix of Aristocrat and soda and jogging for exercise. This year, I’m going to be honest with myself and with my loyal readers who are hopefully not skimming down to the end right about now. The Truth: I strongly dislike going out more than about once a week (and that one night better be rockin’), I would rather drink cat pee than Crat, and my idea of a fun night is me, some friends, my awesome socks and a “30 Rock” marathon. Also, jogging sucks. So does Highintensity interval training. So does spin. Step two: sleep. For the love of God, get some sleep. Everyone. Now. Naptime is now. No sleep equals no smiles and no fun and no sanity. Also, for all you skinny youknow-whats who aren’t listening to me right now, not getting enough sleep also makes you fatter. It’s science. Step three: amigos. Friends are the greatest. I don’t need to explain why—they just are. It’s healthy to connect with a group of individuals you feel drawn to, and it’s also a huge happiness booster. According to the documentary “Happy” (which everyone needs to go watch right this second), the happiest people are those who have strong relationships with friends and family. That being said, it’s crucial to do that whole honesty thing with yourself and make sure that the people you call friends are people who you actually enjoy being with, make you feel confident and, of course, make you happy. As my father, the sage, has pointed out to me many a time, not every friend has to be a lifelong friend. Some friends are only going to last the duration of college, or maybe even just a semester, or maybe even just O-week. It’s okay to let some “meh” friendships go in exchange for some truly awesome and meaningful ones. Step four: passion. In my opinion, I think the most attractive people are those who care deeply for something. We as Duke students have no shortage of drive and ambition but sometimes that ambition can get misplaced. This would explain why I decided to take Intro to Philosophy the first semester of my freshman year because I thought it was just one of those classes you should take in college. Wrong. I had WAY more fun taking an African drumming class second semester even though people laughed at me when I told them. Djembe is fantastic and Professor Bradley Simmons is the man. (Am I earning that A yet?) Step five: Do something crazy. And I don’t mean like keg-stand crazy. There is so much to do in Durham once you step off this campus and look around. Go out to a new restaurant, sign up for a pole tease class (Anyone?... Anyone?) or go on a hike. You’ve got a lot of options, and WeCars are cheap and bike rentals are free. You have no excuse not to go and try mixing things up. So there are my five steps for happiness. Please do as I say and not as I do.

lettertotheeditor Response to “Weed, alcohol mix hurts learning” After reading the Sept. 18 front-page story boldly titled, “Weed, alcohol mix hurts learning,” I was more disappointed than ever by the severe lack of journalistic integrity of a Chronicle writer. The content of the story was poor enough, but the title has to be one of the grossest overstatements and oversimplifications I’ve ever seen. Let’s juxtapose the conclusiveness and generality of the title with the nuance of the actual experiment described, which all of you should actually read. The study found that “the combination of ethanol and THC may be sufficiently reinforcing in adolescent animals to induce a preference for recently encountered stimuli.” In layman’s terms, as co-author Scott Swartzwelder told The Chronicle, the mixture of weed and alcohol “made [the rat] more comfortable with what it already knows.” Here, also in layman’s terms, is exactly what the experimenters did: They put rats in a box for five minutes near two identical objects, then gave different rats different levels of ethanol and THC, waited 24 hours, then put the rats in a box for five minutes with one of the objects from the first trial and one new object, and calculated each rat’s relative preference for exploring the new object compared to the familiar one. Muoio summarized the results for adolescent rats dosed with both ethanol and THC by saying they “did not show signs of memory loss. Instead, they chose to solely interact with the familiar object because it was preferable to the new one, completely counter to their evolutionary tendency to explore.” First of all, Muoio clearly fails to understand either the meaning of the word “solely” or the experimental design itself. Even the rats with the highest dose did not “solely” interact with the familiar object. They demonstrated a statistically significant preference for it by spending more time exploring it. That’s it. Second, I find it very interesting that the study’s results showed that THC by itself actually had no significant impact on adolescent rats’ object preference.

Third, extrapolating those results into the overarching statement “Weed, alcohol mix hurts learning” is lazy and misleading, especially considering the admission in The Chronicle article that rats dosed with the combination did not show signs of impaired memory, which I think we can all agree plays a fairly important role in learning. The bottom line is, as the study’s introduction states, “Studies suggest that the interaction between THC and ethanol is complex and depends upon dose, previous drug experience and the specific performance measure assessed.” That’s the kind of subtlety that science (and good journalism) demands, but instead, The Chronicle chose the most abrasive title possible and sandwiched the actual scientific discussion between a character sketch of lead-author Nick Swartzwelder’s dad and a completely gratuitous reference to “the archetypal stoner.” Wait, wasn’t this about getting crossfaded at parties? Then, the author chose to end on Nick Swartzwelder’s claim that, based on the results of this experiment, getting crossfaded “prevents you from being as effective as a student” because “if you decide to drink and smoke throughout an entire weekend, it affects you long beyond just that day.” Damn, he’s right. The 24 hours between trials really showed the long-term effects on those rats. Look, I’m not arguing that you can study for orgo just as effectively while drunk and high. I doubt anyone could. I’m also not arguing that getting crossfaded every weekend is necessarily healthy. What I am arguing is that The Chronicle should do a much better job of interpreting and reporting scientific studies in a way that represents us as one of the best academic institutions in the country and the world, not as a bunch of pandering, attention-grabbing lightweights.

Pavilion event marks start of renovations by Margot Tuchler THE CHRONICLE

The construction of the Events Pavilion will mark the start of major campus changes, administrators said. Spectators gathered on the Bryan Center Plaza as Larry Moneta, vice president for student affairs, senior Alex Swain, president of Duke Student Government and Steve Nowicki, dean and vice provost of undergraduate education, spoke to mark the upcoming construction. Construction on the pavilion—which will house dining and event venues during West Union Building renovations— is scheduled to be completed summer 2013, at which point West Union construction will begin. The University’s larger construction project will also include renovations to the Bryan Center. “This heralds the start of three years of work,� Moneta said. [The pavilion] really is the lead project on behalf of a dramatic revitalization of the student experience on campus.� Although the University is waiting for formal building permits from Durham, city officials are well-aware of the project, and there is little doubt that the ground-breaking will take place next week, Moneta said. Once construction is com-

plete, the pavilion—located west of the Bryan Center near Union Drive and Towerview Road—will serve as a space for student gatherings, which may include career fairs, majors fairs, sorority recruitment and dances, he noted. The University received $80 million to entirely fund its construction projects from the Duke Endowment in March 2011. West Union will be entirely rebuilt with the exception of three historic locations— the Great Hall, the Cambridge Inn, which now houses Alpine Bagels, and the Kilgo archway, which leads onto the Bryan Center Plaza walkway, Moneta said. Renovations to West Union and the accompanying changes to the Bryan Center will create new student meeting spaces. “In the 23 years [I’ve spent at Duke], I’ve never seen something that is going to be as physically transformational as this suite of projects is going to be in terms of really affecting the lives of undergraduates in a number of really positive ways,� Nowicki said. “This in concert with a number of other things going on at the University are going to take Duke as an undergraduate experience to a new level.� Moneta noted that construc-

tion on the pavilion will not disrupt student life. “It will be fun to watch it go up with little to no impact,� Moneta said in an interview. “We built [Keohane Quadrangle 4E] right in the middle of a residential quad with almost no interruption. It’s the same company.� The official launch—heralded by the release of blue and white balloons at the nearby

construction site—was announced by Swain. “On behalf of Duke Student Government, we are excited to work with all parties involved to make the undergraduate experience as wonderful as possible, starting with this project,� Swain said before the balloons were released. Both Moneta and Nowicki stressed the broader opportunities the construction projects

will present to the Duke community. Nowicki specifically mentioned DukeEngage and DukeImmerse as programs that integrate extracurricular activities and learning, noting that the new campus will promote these kinds of programs. “Duke is forging a new path for thinking about the undergraduate experience educationally as a really integrated whole,� Nowicki said.

Red, white and Blue Devils by Daniel Carp THE CHRONICLE

After they came, saw and conquered in London, Abby Johnston and Nick McCrory received a hero’s welcome to go along with their Olympic medals. Johnston and McCrory returned to the United States last week to a crowd of friends, fans and reporters at RaleighDurham International Airport. The pair were the first divers in Duke history to qualify for the Olympic Games. “It was amazing to feel that support. I really wasn’t expecting that much. I was just walking to baggage claim thinking that I was going to go home and have a quiet night,” McCrory said. “I knew there was going to be some media stuff, but to that degree I had no idea. It was really cool. It was great to feel the support and

see some of my friends and family who came out to see me at the airport. I really felt that support the entire time I was in London as well.” Johnston and McCrory earned the first U.S. diving medals since 2000 when Johnston and her partner, Kelci Bryant, won the silver medal in the women’s synchronized 3-meter springboard event. McCrory and his diving partner, David Boudia, followed suit the next day when they took bronze in the men’s synchronized 10-meter platform competition. The medals were the first ever for the U.S. in synchronized diving. “It was really great to be a part of that. You had that feeling that the teams, the way we worked together, everyone had this sense that good things were going to happen,” Johnston said. “Kelci and I started it off with the silver medal and got the ball rolling. It was really exciting to watch the rest of my team perform really well and make history.” In addition to his bronze in the synchronized competition, McCrory also competed individually in the men’s 10-meter platform, making it to the final round and finishing ninth. He watched as Boudia, now his opponent, stunned Qiu Bo of China, the event’s favorite, and local heartthrob Tom Daley of Great Britain, to take the United States’ first gold medal from the platform since Greg Louganis at the 1988 Olympic Games. McCrory would have loved to earn a gold medal of his own, but the bronze held a special significance for the McCrory family. Nick finally had a bronze medal to match his uncle, Gordon Downie, who earned a bronze for Great Britain in the 4x200m freestyle relay at the 1976 Olympics in Montreal. A few days before McCrory was set to compete in the Olympics for the first time, he had dinner with Downie, sharing a special moment between Olympians.

“It’s just really cool having that connection in the first place. It almost seemed like a sign that I was going to walk away from the Olympics with a medal, and a bronze at that,” McCrory said. For the 21-year-old McCrory, the Olympics were about much more than competing. He said some of his favorite memories of the Games came far away from the diving well. “Being in the Olympic environment, you hear so much about the Olympics and what to expect, and you form this image in your mind what it’s going to be like. But you never know what it’s like until you go there,” McCrory said. “It takes you by surprise how epic everything is. The [Olympic] Village was amazing, and all of the venues were incredible.” After taking time away from school last year to train for the Olympic Trials, Johnston and McCrory will return to Duke this Fall for the first time in more than a year. Now Olympic medalists, they look forward to rejoining their classmates and concentrating on their studies in Durham. “I’m so happy to be coming back to Duke. I can’t wait,” McCrory said. “We’re going to be regular students for a little while.” Addressing the media alongside Duke men’s basketball head coach Mike Krzyzewski, who led the U.S. to a second consecutive gold medal at the London Games, McCrory admitted that he and Johnston were a bit star struck when they shared a moment with the Blue Devil coach at the airport. “When we talked to him it was just so cool. He was following our progress at the Olympics and it felt like we were such a team, because we really were representing Duke and I felt so proud to be doing that,” McCrory said. “It just felt really awesome to be sharing that with Coach K.”

Clinton lauds Obama despite rocky past by Jack Mercola THE CHRONICLE

CHARLOTTE — After former President Bill Clinton waxed lyrical about President Barack Obama’s time in office so far, the two shared a warm embrace on stage at the Democratic National Convention amid riotous cheers of approval from the crowd. Clinton spent 48 minutes outlining exactly how Obama’s policies trump those of Romney and the Republican Party platform in his address Wednesday night. He covered many of this election cycle’s most contentious talking points—job creation, national debt, Obamacare and welfare reform—and chastised Republicans, claiming that they have been unwilling to compromise across party lines. With nearly the entirety of Time Warner Cable Arena on its feet, Clinton maintained his familiar charisma while ad-libbing and going off script to interact with the crowd several times. “President Obama’s approach embodies the values, the ideas and the direction America must take to build a 21st century vision of the American Dream in a nation of shared opportunities, shared prosperity and shared responsibilities,” he said. But the relationship between Clinton and Obama—and their ideologies—has not always been so peachy. Both men have been publicly at odds with the other, most notably during the 2008 presidential election. Through the Democratic primary, which pitted Obama against Clinton’s wife, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, harsh words were exchanged as Obama accused Bill Clinton of utilizing dishon-

est and “troubling” campaign tactics while Bill Clinton called Obama’s campaign platform a mere “fairy tale.” Eight years prior to the primary battle filled with barbs, Clinton worked to defeat Obama in a 2000 Illinois congressional race. Obama was running against Democratic incumbent Bobby Rush in the primary, and Clinton endorsed Rush a week before the election took place, ushering in a loss for Obama. But Clinton put history and differences aside—even poking fun at Obama’s appointment of his wife—as he took the stage the night before Obama will accept his nomination, usurping a position that is typically filled by the vice presidential nominee. With his enduring popularity among the American public, he may be just the strong arm that Obama and Democrats need to achieve the sought after “convention bump” in pre-election polls. Clinton and first lady Michelle Obama, who spoke Tuesday night, are Democratic faces that are well-liked by the public—they earned a 69 percent and she a 65 percent approval rating, respectively, in a Sept. 5 USA Today/Gallup poll. Both nights, the DNC crowd reflected this support, receiving both Clinton’s and Michelle Obama’s speeches with great praise. If Americans trust in Clinton, as the polls suggest, he may have aided Democrats with his address, as he not only backed up pro-Obama rhetoric with facts on the empirical benefits of many of Obama’s policies, but also worked to discredit much of the Republican discussion from last week’s Republican National Convention. “In Tampa, we heard a lot of

talk about how the president and Democrats don’t believe in free enterprise and individual initiative,” he said. “Well since 1961, Republicans have held the White House for 28 years, the Democrats 24. In those 52 years, our economy produced 66 million private-sector jobs. What’s the jobs score? Republicans 24 million, Democrats 42 million.” Clinton cited other statistics to explain how Obama would better serve the American people on not only job creation, but on working to balance the federal budget, achieved by Clinton and a Republican-controlled Congress during his presidency. “Obama has offered a plan with $4 trillion in debt reduction over a decade, with two and a half dollars of spending reduction for every one dollar or revenue increases, and tight controls on future spending,” Clinton noted. “It’s the kind of balanced approach proposed by the bipartisan Simpson-Bowles committee.” Clinton also addressed the GOP’s relentless attacks on Obamacare. He said Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s vision for Medicare and Medicaid neglects those in the greatest need. The GOP ticket’s plan for these programs would show Americans the end of modern Medicare by 2016, he added, because the plan would bolster insurance companies while asking seniors to pay more for medication and shorten the life of the Medicare trust fund by eight years. “But it gets worse—[Romney and Paul Ryan] want to block grant Medicaid and cut it by a third over the coming decade,” Clinton said. “Almost two-thirds

I don’t know how those families would deal with it. We can’t let that happen.” To conclude his speech, Clinton put his full support behind Obama and his vision—an America that prospers as a “we’re all in this together” society, Clinton said. “If that’s what you believe— if that’s what you want, we have to re-elect President Barack Obama,” he said.

The Chronicle’s Nicole Kyle, Jack Mercola and Chelsea Pieroni spent three days in Charlotte reporting, photographing and live-Tweeting the convention.

Pathman and Cobb get gold at U-20 World Cup by Tim Visutipol THE CHRONICLE

While most Duke students were getting settled into the Fall semester here in Durham, junior Mollie Pathman and sophomore Kelly Cobb were in Japan representing the United States at the U-20 Women’s World Cup. The two returned to Duke with gold medals after the United States defeated Germany in the final 1-0 last Sunday. “They couldn’t get us off the field,� Cobb said. “We were celebrating, singing.� Cobb shared that “Don’t Wake Me Up� by Chris Brown was the team’s theme song during their experience and was played prominently in the postvictory celebrations. “Every time I hear that song it kind of gets me a bit teary eyed, because in the locker room after the game when we were getting our medals, that song played,� Cobb said. “Every time I hear that song I’ll remember that trip and those girls.� During the tournament, the United States scraped through the group stage on goal difference, before advancing past North Korea after extra time in the quarterfinals. The nervy start changed and the United States stepped up a gear and moved past Nigeria 2-0 in the semifinals.

Cobb said the U.S. women’s national team’s recent success at the Summer Olympics was something the team tried to emulate. “We talked about it at some meetings about how they came back, goal after goal and kept on fighting. They’re great role models, and every time you watch the full national team you learn something from them,â€? Cobb said. “I think that’s how we responded to going down in group play.‌ Our group play was not very successful‌ I think we expected to dominate a little more. We came out of that and turned our attitude around and found the mentality of the [United States national team].â€? It was not all about the soccer, though, as the team had chances to travel to five different cities and enjoy the Japanese culture. The pair is in agreement over one thing—the politeness and the welcoming hospitality of the Japanese people. The US team visited the Hiroshima Memorial and paid respects there. They were also able to interact with fans off the field by signing autographs and playing soccer with local children. “They have a great passion for women’s soccer, which is fantastic,â€? Cobb said. “They’re very supportive for the Japan [U]-20 national team.â€? While attendance was low at

the start of the tournament, the team played in front of much larger crowds as it reached the later rounds. The attendance was over 30,000 during the final against Germany. The Americans also had a chance to get to know each other during friendly times before the battle to the national championship begins. “My team is like my best friends, we’ve gone through so much. This experience is really stressful on all of us,� Pathman said. “It really bonds us, we called ourselves a family. These are really my sisters and I’d do anything for them. It was sad saying goodbye to everyone.� As the conference schedule approaches, the lasting bonds will now be tested on the field. The U.S. team includes seven other players who compete for an ACC school. “There’s a lot of them in the ACC and we’re excited to see each other,� Pathman said. “On the field we’re going to be competitors but as soon as we step off the field, we’ll be back to that same sister mentality.� Cobb said the friendship will make her prepare differently—it might “throw her off a little bit.� In their absence, the Blue Devils have raced to a 6-2 season start, scoring 34 goals in the process. Cobb and Pathman have tried to keep in touch with

the team, having many Skype calls and texts to wish their teammates good luck before games. Now that the two are back they are busy catching up with class and their teammates, but

with the 13-hour time difference between Durham and Japan, Cobb has admitted that it is sometimes difficult to stay awake in class. “Thank god for coffee,� Cobb said.

Lemurs considered critically endangered by Lincoln Richards THE CHRONICLE

Madagascar is home to the only wild lemurs on earth, but it might not be for long. Due to increased hunting and deforestation in Madagascar, the world’s lemur population is more threatened than ever before. The Duke Lemur Center, which hosts the world’s highest number of lemurs outside of Madagascar, is increasing its efforts to protect lemur species and habitat because if conditions do not change, lemurs could be extinct by 2050, conservation coordinator Charles Welch said. “We need to protect the forest for the lemurs to live in,” Welch said. “We do that in a lot of different ways, from environmental education to reforestation, conservation research and fish farming.” At a meeting in July to update the status of lemurs on the International Union for Conservation of Nature Red-List, which compiles conservation statuses for endangered animals, the number of lemur species listed as critically endangered rose from eight to 23, endangered species increased from 18 to 52 and vulnerable species bumped up from 14 to 19. This update makes lemurs the most threatened mammals in the world, based on Red-List status. Of the 19 lemur species at the Center, four are labeled critically endangered, six are endangered and three are considered vulnerable.

The DLC provides a sanctuary for lemurs in Durham, but also works in the field in northern Madagascar to protect lemurs. Welch himself has been working on lemur conservation for over 20 years, 15 of which he spent living in Madagascar. Deforestation poses one of the gravest threats to lemurs in the wild. Due to expanding population and proliferation of slash and burn farming techniques, only about 10 percent of the country’s natural rainforests remain, Welch said. Although deforestation is illegal inside national parks and reserves, the political situation in Madagascar makes it difficult to enforce these laws. “The country is three years into a transition government that took transition by force and a lot of the aid has been pulled out of the country,” Welch said. “Any time there isn’t stability in the government, there isn’t really stability anywhere else.” The loss of habitat also creates physical limitations for lemur species that are trying to breed. “Part of the problem is now the forests are becoming so fragmented, you have these island populations of lemurs and you don’t have this flow between the fragments, and it’s really a dead end,” Welch said. He added that forest fragmentation forces species to inbreed, which hurts their chances of survival. One focus of the DLC is the healthy breeding of lemur species, research

manager Erin Ehmke said. The hope is to keep lemur species’ genetic lineages healthy so that the lemurs can be reintroduced to Madagascar if the environmental situation there stabilizes. The DLC and other conservancy groups have raised awareness about the lemurs’ plights, Welch said. The DLC also works to educate the people of Madagascar on the importance of protecting lemurs. “An [increasing] problem in the past [has] been subsistence hunting—people who live on the edge of the forest who hunt and set traps for lemurs and eat them themselves,” Welch said. “Now there is more hunting on a larger scale than there was in the past and a lot of that is linked into the illegal traffic and cutting of wood.” One of the DLC projects in Madagascar addresses the problem of lemur hunting through fish farming, to provide protein choices other than lemur meat. The Center also works to inspire care for lemurs among the youth of Madagascar. “It’s important that we do environmental education with kids, you can see how their minds open up and understand in different ways, but it takes time to get that impact up the road,” Welch said. At the DLC, within miles of Duke’s campus, researchers work to alleviate the lemurs’ plight. The research is vital to helping the lemur population because the more

scientists and activists know about the creatures, the better equipped they are to help them. The DLC scientists perform only noninvasive research, so that the lemurs are not harmed in the process. Recent research conducted at the DLC indicates that lemurs are risk averse. When given the choice of doing one action for an assured two pieces of fruit or doing a second action, where they are unsure whether they will receive 10 or zero pieces of fruit, the lemurs will almost

always choose the activity where they are assured of a reward. Other research has demonstrated lemurs are highly cognitive mammals. In some experiments, they manipulate computer touchscreens to solve tasks. In fact, the lemurs get excited when they realize they are going to be given tests. “When they see that computer cart rolling down the hall they get excited because they know they’re about to take on a task and do something challenging,” Ehmke said.

THE CHRONICLE

New Tailgating has ADF finds permanent elements old and new home in Durham by Georgia Parke THE CHRONICLE

Old Tailgate was known for garish costumes and beer showers, but New Tailgating’s debut Saturday took a more traditional southern route. Ten student groups set up tents on the Main Quadrangle Saturday afternoon before Duke Football’s 54-17 victory against North Carolina Central University. Students barbecued, threw frisbees, played corn hole and drank beer together while a student DJ provided music. Perhaps out of nostalgia for Tailgate, which was canceled in November 2010, several people continued the tradition of dressing in costumes. Outfits included purple footie pajamas with ducks, stretchy gold pants, caution tape clothing, a cow suit and multiple dinosaurs getups. But the majority of tailgaters showed up in Duke gear and other athletic wear for a mellow Saturday afternoon under blue skies and barbecue smoke. Kevin Nguyen, Trinity ’12, a recent graduate who returned to campus for tailgating, said he found “the best of both worlds� in this mix of new and old Tailgate. “There’s people just hanging out, people socializing, reconnecting with old friends— some that just graduated,� he said. “You can’t not come to this, just because it’s right here. It’s good for the campus because it almost forces people to just interact and have fun together and be involved.� Several students interviewed complained that the event was too spread across the campus. Unlike Tailgate, where attendees crammed into the Blue Zone parking lot, tailgating groups were widely dispersed across West Campus, extending all the way into Krzyzewskiville, where alumni and nonstudents spent time before the game. Student groups also set up gatherings in their own dorm sections. Duke Student Government President Alex Swain, a senior, said attendance was great for the first New Tailgating event, with 10 registered student groups. Most tents had a steady crowd enjoying free food and beer, along with visits from groups of unaf-

filiated students who stopped by before the game. Freshmen made up a significant portion of the attendees. “After hearing stories about the old Tailgate, this doesn’t live up to the legacy, but it’s still fun and there’s free food,� said freshman Tom Vosburgh. “I’ve seen people from every single class here.� Senior Ben Huang noted that the event suffered from more limited access for student groups. “One of the best things about the old Tailgate was that it didn’t matter what group you were a part of or who you went there with,� Huang said. “By limiting the number of groups on the Main Quad, you limit how much the student population can intermix.� Junior Neil Kondamuri, DSG vice president for social culture, said that there were more openings available for groups on the main quad. Alcohol policies, similar to those of Last Day of Classes, mandated six beers per person and banned glass containers and common distribution such as kegs. Kondamuri noted that DSG has not met yet to discuss ways to refine the event before the next home game, adding that no major problems arose. “Any group that was getting too excited was told about it. We expect that a little bit,� he said. Several upperclassmen, like senior Michelle Lamani, found the new format of tailgating a refreshing break from the pregame festivities of years past. “It’s nice to interact with other people and have them not be drunk,� she said. “Now people are more likely to think about the football game and support the team.� After student groups deconstructed their tents, New Tailgating seemed to contribute more to football attendance than tailgates past. When Tailgating wound down at 6 p.m., many tailgaters and visitors shifted toward the Wallace Wade Stadium. “Are they more excited for the game? I don’t know,� Huang said. “But are people more likely to go to the game? Absolutely.�

SPECIAL TO THE CHRONICLE

The American Dance Festival has taken place in Durham for 36 years, and the international dance festival now has its own facility. by Madeline Roberts THE CHRONICLE

For eighty years, the American Dance Festival (ADF) has been hosting dozens of premier international dance troupes and trained hundreds of the nation’s rising dancers. For the past 36 years, ADF has been hosting its classes and events in Durham, becoming a cultural and artistic asset in the surrounding community. And yet, ADF has never had its own space to use for classes, showcases or training—that is, until now. Completed this August, ADF’s new 10,000 square foot facility is situated across the street from Duke’s East Campus, at 721 Broad Street. The space is sleek and modern; the studios are naturally lit, and the building is equipped with locker rooms and a yoga deck, as well as a shoe boutique, bakery and art gallery on the main floor. Myra Scibetta, ADF’s Marketing and Audience Services Associate said that the program has never been able to have any classes or performances outside of their summer season, but the new venue will allow them to teach all ages and perform year-round. “These classes are a great way for Duke students to stay connected to the art form and what’s happening,� Scibetta said. The weekly classes (which vary from African dance to Contact Improvisation) will begin on Monday, September 10 and are open to everyone. ADF also welcomes drop-ins, offering rates of $15 per session or five- and ten-class passes. In terms of catering to busy students, Scibetta said that the administration is looking into ways to engage Duke students year-round, a new challenge considering that ADF used to be a summer-only event. Scibetta also mentioned that ADF is looking into discounts or special classes to involve the

student community, saying that “we’re just getting our feet wet, there’s a lot to come.� Moreover, ADF has offered students and faculty discounts for performances in the past and has hosted events for Duke alumni to get involved with festival. The American Dance Festival normally solely operates in June and July, bringing various dance troupes from around the world and arranging performances at venues such as DPAC, Reynolds Theater and other Duke spaces. Last year ADF hosted 18 companies, with dancers form Israel, New York, Japan, France and Taiwan, among others. In addition, ADF offers a 6-week program for dancers age 16 and up. With about 50-60 faculty and live musicians, the 300 students reside on East Campus or in surrounding apartments and practice various dance forms/pieces for six hours a day. The 2013 festival will be their first opportunity to have their own dance venue; in the past, students have practiced and performed in Brodie Gym, the Ark, West Campus and even Smith Warehouse. The majority of chosen students are experienced dancers, but ADF has leveled classes and gives out scholarships for certain students that go through an audition process. ADF Director Jodee Nimerichter, echoes the importance of having a brick-and-mortar location attached to such an established organization. “For the first time in history, we are owners of property,� Nimerichter said. “People will be able to come to us on a year-round basis.� With Durham’s increasing prominence as an artistic hub, the new dance facility is, as Scibetta said, “a whole other limb� for Durham’s vibrant performing arts scene.

BDU demands more space for LGBT center by Patton Callaway THE CHRONICLE

Student group Blue Devils United is fighting for more space for the Center for LGBT Life’s new location, claiming that current plans do not meet the expanded needs of the LGBT community. When it was first announced in April that the LGBT Center would move permanently to the Bryan Center, representatives of the LGBT community believed that they would get at least half of the current University Center Activities and Events space. But the latest blueprints—dated August 16—show that more than half of the space is allocated for the Office of Student Affairs, and the space for the LGBT Center does not reflect the desires outlined by an LGBT Study Group, which was involved in the original planning. According to the blueprints, the new LGBT space is expected to be 3,275 sq.-ft.—about 500 sq.-ft. larger than the current center—and Student Affairs will be 5,038 sq.-ft. Vice President for Student Affairs Larry Moneta said in an interview that plans are still flexible. Both the center and the Student Affairs office are moving summer 2013 due to the upcoming West Union Building renovations. “We’re still reviewing all the space options for the center,” Moneta wrote in an email Saturday. He added that the center sufficiently meets the community’s needs. “[The space] is pretty spectacular. It’s in an ideal location, and it addresses their needs—separate meeting rooms, student offices, a library and programming space,” Moneta said. After DSG made a resolution to support BDU in seeking more space for the new center, representatives from both groups met with Moneta this past Wednesday. “What we ask Moneta to do is to remove some of the administrative space and make it more of a student space,” said BDU President Denzell Faison, a junior. “We feel that space in the Bryan Center should be used for student use and not for administrative purposes.” In addition to receiving a smaller space than expected, Faison noted that the new center does not include an office for an assistant director, and the programming space is not much bigger than the space in the current center—going against a report submitted by the LGBT Study Group at the beginning of the planning process. Moneta said he hopes revised plans will include an office for an assistant director. The LGBT Study Group, which included undergraduates, graduate students, faculty, staff and alumni, compiled a report for Moneta about the groups’ needs in the new space. Through extensive research and surveys, the group outlined the LGBT community’s requests. Participants wanted a more visible location, increased programming space, a discreet entrance for students uncomfortable coming into the center and an office for an assistant director, Faison said. “We outlined in our report that we have grown substantially from the original four students to hundreds of students,” he added. “Our [current] space has become insufficient.” The new space does not reflect the growth of the LGBT community at Duke and their programming needs expressed in the report, said study group member Michael Gustafson, associate professor of the practice of electrical and computer engineering. “The part of all this that shocks me is the number of square feet going into the Bryan Center for student life that have nothing to do with students,” Gustafson said. “Payroll specialists and development are important, but they should not be in the center of the student center.” Moneta said the study group’s ideas were included when creating the new center. He added that the space improves on the current location, with separate meeting rooms, programming space, student offices and an alternate entrance. “The student voice was reflected in the development

qduke.com

of the narrative that ultimately influenced the architect’s proposed layout of the space,” Moneta said. After submitting the report this past Spring, members did not receive any updates or information about the process from Moneta’s office until receiving the most recent report this Fall, Faison said. And when BDU and DSG met with him Wednesday, the students’ understanding was that nothing could be done at this point, he added. “Moneta wasn’t even willing to listen to our concerns. His mind was already made up,” Faison said. The decision to reduce programming space in the new center sends a strong message of indifference to the needs of the LGBT community, said Kyle Knight, Trinity ’08, president of the LGBT Alumni Network. “In the conversations I have had with LGBT alumni who graduated in the ’60s through the present, one

theme tends to surface rather often: a general distrust of the Duke administration’s dedication to the LGBT community on campus,” Knight wrote in an email Friday. He also noted that these plans could affect LGBT alumni donations to the University. “I would hope alumni interest—substantive and financial—has sent a strong signal to the University that we take decisions such as this one seriously,” Knight added. With the support of alumni, DSG and the LGBT community, BDU plans to appeal to President Richard Brodhead and Provost Peter Lange next, Faison said. “Fundamentally, we believe we need more space,” he added. “What we ask Moneta to do is to remove some of the administrative space and make it more of a student space.”
