One 4Loko, two 4Loko... floor Caffeine and alcohol drink stirs up Fla. legislation By Katie Egan Senior staff writer and Samantha League News editor
t’s sweeping college campuses worldwide. It’s cheaper than a six-pack of beer, but one can has alcohol content about equal to a six pack. Four Loko, the “premium 24-ounce caffeinated alcohol beverage,” has been banned from Central Washington University and Ramapo College in New Jersey, and the state of New Jersey is seeking to ban it entirely. The “blackout in a can” is under fire by the Food and Drug Ad-
ministration after an off-campus party gone wrong in Ellensburg, Wash., where nine Central Washington University students were hospitalized in October and believed to be sickened after consuming Four Loko, according to CNN. Police say some of the Central Washington University students had a blood alcohol content higher than .3, which can kill you. Energy drinks contain a laundry list of exotic ingredients, but Four Loko only contains four: caffeine, taurine, guarana and alcohol. Taurine, thought to inhibit performance, is also a main in-
gredient found in Red Bull. Guarana is a natural source of caffeine from South America, and contains twice as much caffeine as a cup of coffee, according to CNN. These ingredients allow the consumer to ingest large amounts of alcohol without passing out. According to Dr. Martha Rosenthal, FGCU professor of physiology and neuroscience, alcohol is metabolized by zero-order kinetics. That means it takes a certain amount of time for alcohol to break down into non-intoxicating subjects.
The 7-Eleven on Alico Road sells eight different types of Four Loko drinks. According to an assistant manager, the store sells about 70 cans a week, mostly between Thursday please see FOUR LOKO on page 5 and Saturday and primarily to customers 25 years old or younger. EN photo/Mike Ricci

Approved developments will help campus growth By Samantha League News editor
wo developments have been approved for future housing sites, guaranteed to provide student housing for FGCU’s growing population. On Oct. 20, Lee County commissioners approved a mixed-use development, called Alico West, adjacent to FGCU. This development, which is 919 acres, will include 1,950 student residences and 1.5 million square-feet of commercial space, according to a report in The News-Press. The land, which used to be a mine until the early 1990s, is valued at $6.5 million. The company that owns the land currently, Alico, also agreed to donate 40 acres to the university for academic buildings. University officials hope Alico West will offer a “geograph-
ical focal point for a university now composed predominantly of commuting students,” according to The News-Press. Another development, University Highlands, was approved on Oct. 18. University Highlands is located at Ben Hill Griffin and Estero parkways, just south of campus near Germain Arena. Originally, the development was going to contain 2,335 residential units. An amendment to the original proposal reduced the maximum residential units to 2,279 and increased the square footage of commercial space from 818,000 to 910,000. The projects still need to go through more zoning approvals and finalizations before construction can begin.

he Hopeline Bill, which will provide funds for 25 students to be trained as volunteers for the IMAlive online crisis network, passed 32-0 at the Oct. 26 senate meeting. The IMAlive program was launched by The Kristin Brooks Hope Center, which operates one of the largest suicide hotlines (1-800-SUICIDE) and the wellknown, nonprofit organization To Write Love on Her Arms. IMAlive is the first live, online, peer-to-peer counseling network with 100 percent of its staff certified in trained crisis intervention. The aim of IMAlive is to provide online support to people in crisis who are unable or unwilling to reach out for help by making a phone call to a crisis network. Studies indicate that people in crisis are more willing and comfortable to seek help via written communication online as opposed to using a telephone hotline or seeking face-to-face counseling. Each IMAlive volunteer must undergo a minimum of 50 hours of training and also pass a series of tests and screenings. Training costs $250 per volunteer with a commitment to work a minimum of four hours per week for one year. The Hopeline Bill will fund the online training of 25 FGCU students by the Question, Persuade, Refer Institute. Training
and service time will be completed in the FGCU library. After the year of commitment is completed, the $250 will be credited back as training credits, which will enable the training of 25 new volunteers every year. 1-800-SUICIDE has responded to more than 3 million crisis calls since 1998, and To Write Love on Her Arms has responded to more than 100,000 messages from people battling depression, addiction, self-injury and suicide since 2006. “I am thrilled … the passing
of this bill shows that we have caring and empathetic students at FGCU. This program demonstrates a realistic approach to combating depression; it allows students to seek help and offer help,” said Sen. Alex Trent, who sponsored the bill. The Service Learning Department has agreed to acknowledge all of the hours involved in the program for the volunteers who complete the course. Students who are interested in applying for training should e-mail email@example.com. edu
Suicide is the third leading cause of death for young people ages 15-24. Student Senate passed a bill last week that would give 25 students the opportunity to learn how to help students who are struggling with depression. EN illustration/ Elliot Taylor

Students celebrated Pride Day last Wednesday on the Library Lawn. Multicultural Relations put the event on in honor of National Coming Out Month in October.EN photo/ Chealsye Bowley
Pride Day about acceptance By Chealsye Bowley Staff writer
he FGCU community celebrated Pride Day last Wednesday on the library lawn, and one word came across loud and clear at the event hosted by Student Governmentâ€™s multicultural relations committee: acceptance â€œThrough my job as multicultural relations director, I want to rid FGCU of tolerance and add acceptance. With acceptance you have to understand it,â€? said Rashad Davis, a sophomore majoring in political science and theater. Pride Day takes place during October â€” National Coming Out Month â€” with celebrity speakers. The event promoted acceptance of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community, and the development of â€œstraight,â€? heterosexual students as allies who support and accept. â€œItâ€™s great that we have this event. Everyone should be comfortable in their own skin and be treated equally,â€? said Alyssa
Johnson, a sophomore majoring in communications. Many FGCU-registered student organizations were in attendance at the event, including Gay Straight Alliance (GSA) and Gender Equality Organization (GEO). Additionally, the Naples Chapter of Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG) came out and spoke about relatives accepting their LGBT youth. Amanda Adams, GEO and senior majoring in environmental science, explained GEOâ€™s mustache booth was a way to challenge the gender binary system. â€œWeâ€™re trying to raise awareness about gender equality issues. Seeing girls walk around with mustaches catches your eye. We are trying to challenge the idea of femininity,â€? Adams said. In addition to the speakers from PFLAG, Pride Day hosted celebrity speakers including Isis King from â€œAmericaâ€™s Next Top Modelâ€?; Deon Davis, who wrote â€œIâ€™ll Find a Way: A Motherâ€™s Journey of Love and Acceptance for Her Gay Sonâ€?; and David Mallory from â€œReal World Denver.â€?
Mallory who came out as gay during his undergraduate years at Stetson University, is self-described as from a â€œbible-beatingâ€? family with a grandfather preacher and Sunday school teacher mother. â€œYou donâ€™t have to be gay to have pride. You can be a proud gay ally, proud for your religion, race, gender. â€œIt starts with loving yourself,â€? Mallory said. Billy Dahlstrom, a junior majoring in criminal justice and forensics, was impressed with how accepting FGCU is about the LGBT community. â€œI think it (FGCU) is pretty accepting. Iâ€™ve visited a lot of schools and they didnâ€™t seem open about it. There are so many safe zones here and events that arenâ€™t seen at other schools,â€? Dahlstrom said. The solidarity and support among LGBT and allies at FGCU was also demonstrated Oct. 20 when students wore purple in honor of six gay teen suicides that attracted national attention.

$".164#3*&' Speaker puts face on modern slavery Julie Shematz, founder/CEO of Beauty from Ashes Ministries and an FGCU full-time graduate student in education, will be giving a presentation about who the victims of human trafficking are from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 4, in Reed 249. Shematz is a social justice missionary who hopes to inspire people with her powerful testimony of â€œbeauty from ashes.â€? Shematz grew up fatherless, and has overcome sexual and domestic abuse, abandonment, depression, addictions and being a victim of human trafficking. In 2005, she established the Beauty from Ashes Ministries, Inc., which is a not-for-profit, faith-based organization dedicated to helping women and children involved in or associated with the sex industry. â€œShe has a really interesting perspective because sheâ€™s actually a survivor of human trafficking â€Ś (her presentation) will be really informative and eye-opening for a lot of people,â€? said Carey Walker, a sophomore majoring in history and minoring in education and interdisciplinary studies. The event is sponsored by the Student Abolitionist Movement (SAM), which is dedicated to raising awareness of and increasing engagement with the issue of modern-day slavery. SAM is both an RSO and honors service team. Walker and Katie Silva, a junior majoring in psychology, are co-presidents for the SAM RSO and co-leaders for the SAM service team. Aside from being CEO of Beauty from Ashes Ministries, Shematz is enrolled in the Mental Health Counseling program, is a licensed minister and was a licensed hair, nail and makeup specialist for nine years. She also holds a bachelorâ€™s degree from Herron School of Art at Indiana University, and was a triple major, Deanâ€™s List student at Purdue University while running on the womenâ€™s track team. To get involved with SAM, search for FGCU Student Abolitionist Movement â€™10-â€™11 on Facebook.
Proposed legislation could provide housing Alico continued from page 1
According to NBC-2, these approvals will allow FGCU to branch out with dorms and a student village. FGCU is expecting to add another 10,000 students within the next decade. Although the university will eventually have space for 5,000 students to live on campus, the university will
still have 17,000 students commuting every day from fairly remote locations. These developments will be completed in time to give future students a closer place to live and, possibly, more of a â€œcollegetown feel.â€? Those worried about the developments at the commission meetings were either concerned about the developments being â€œignored by the university like other developments,â€? or Miromar Lakes homeowners who were concerned about â€œnoise, lighting and other consequences.â€?
Fort Myers attorney Charles Basinait, who represented Alico, retaliated with a reminder that Miromar Lakes was built after the university, and how the Alico West mine was active at the time of its creation as well. â€œWhen Miromar Lakes was built there was an active mine on the (Alico West) site,â€? Basinait was quoted by The NewsPress. â€œI struggle to see how thatâ€™s more compatible than what weâ€™re doing.â€? â€” The News-Press and NBC-2 contributed to this report.

â€œSo if you chug 12 beers at once (or two Four Lokos), your body needs to essentially metabolize 12 hoursâ€™ worth right away,â€? Rosenthal said. â€œIt canâ€™t do this, so the alcohol builds up in your bloodstream and does nasty things like, oh, shutting down the respiratory centers of your brain.â€? Although the caffeine may give the drinker more energy to drink, Rosenthal doesnâ€™t think the amount of caffeine is the problem for most people. â€œThe other stuff â€” caffeine, taurine, artificial flavors and colors â€” arenâ€™t helping, but Iâ€™d say the major danger comes from the big olâ€™ dose of alcohol,â€? Rosenthal said. Four Loko was developed by three Ohio State University alumni. Eventually, the controversial energy drink was produced by Phusion Products in Chicago. â€œFourâ€? made its debut in the United States during 2005. It was first distributed in its home state of Ohio and within six months, Florida, California and Illinois followed suit. Four Loko comes in nine flavors: citrus, grape, orange blend, watermelon, fruit punch, blue raspberry, lemonade, cranberry lemonade and lemon-lime. But those flavors donâ€™t mask the potentially fatal effects of this â€œblackout in a can.â€? Although Jessie DuperrĂŠ, a sophomore majoring in nursing, drinks Four Lokos, she hasnâ€™t personally witnessed a Loko â€œblackoutâ€? night. â€œI drink Lokos frequently, and yeah, they can get you intoxicated,

but I have never â€˜blacked outâ€™ from them and have never heard of any of my friends blacking out either,â€? said DuperrĂŠ, 21. Kevin Dowty, a senior majoring in civil and environmental engineering, thinks the issue boils down to simply being responsible. â€œI think that, just like every other controlled legal substance, you need to drink responsibly,â€? said Dowty, 22. â€œIf youâ€™re going to drink them, you need to understand the consequences of what could possibly happen, and not drink two or three at a time.â€? Hypothetically, if someone has two to three Four Lokos in an hour, theyâ€™ve just chugged 12 to 18 drinks. However, Sammy Bordner, a junior majoring in accounting, be-
lieves Four Lokos are perceived as â€œmore dangerousâ€? because of the specific group of consumers they attract. â€œI think the reason why they are perceived as dangerous is because they are preferred by younger, more inexperienced drinkers, and especially girls,â€? said Bordner, 21. â€œUsually girls prefer liquor over beer.â€? Employees at a local 7-Eleven said they sell 70 cans a week with the majority of the sales happening Thursday through Saturday. They estimated that 90 percent of the consumers are 25 years old or younger. â€œFour Lokos are (also) easier to getâ€Ś when people go on a beer run at a gas station, they can grab a Four Loko, too, as opposed to going on a separate trip to the liquor

store,â€? he said. Although Four Lokos are easily available and appealing to college students, students need to understand the ingredients of the drink, and to always be responsible when drinking. â€œThey need to understand the risk involved with drinking a Loko and any other alcoholic caffeinated beverage â€” they should not be banned,â€? Dowty said. Phusion Products, the maker of Four Loko, echoed this point: â€œWhen consumed responsibly, our products are just as safe as any other alcoholic beverage.â€?
Who says a benefit for childrenâ€™s cancer research canâ€™t be fun? This Saturday, Nov. 6, Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity will be hosting their first â€œIDKâ€? Party from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. at Vapianoâ€™s, located in Gulf Coast Town Center. Attendees will find out what â€œIDKâ€? means at the party. Greeks and non-Greeks, 18 years or older, are invited to come out. For Greeks there is no entrance fee. Thereâ€™s a $5 entrance fee for non-Greek men and a $3 entrance fee for non-Greek women. A portion of the proceeds from the event will go to St. Jude Childrenâ€™s Research Hospital, which is Kappa Alpha Psiâ€™s philanthropy. â€œ(Kappa Alpha Psiâ€™s) purpose is to better the community and help individuals in need â€” we strive for achievement in every field of human endeavor,â€? said Willis Harris, the Polemark (president) of Kappa Alpha Psi. Harris hopes attendees will keep that purpose in mind when they attend the event. â€œI just want people to have a phenomenal night, to understand we want diversityâ€Ś and to understand your mo neyâ€™s going for a good purpose: the cancer research center,â€? he said. The attire for this event is nicecasual. Kappa Alpha Psi invites everyone to enjoy its first party of the year and help a worthy cause while doing so. â€” Eagle News staff

Date auction: Canned goods for chartity
Take the Walk minus your shoes for charity On Nov. 4, students are invited to participate in a one-mile barefoot walk from noon to 2 p.m. on the library lawn. The goal of the walk, which is organized by Jamie Gillhespy of FGCUâ€™s Rotaract Club, is to encourage students to walk barefoot for a day in order to raise money for the Take the Walk organization. This organization, headed by the brothers of the pop band Hanson, donates $1 for every person who participates in the walk. The money is then used to purchase shoes. Having been inspired by the Hanson brothersâ€™ example and feeling the need to make a difference of his own, Gillhespy got to work on organizing his own event with the help of the Rotaract Club. â€œRotaract gave me the resources I needed to pursue my goal of organizing my own walk. For me, Rotaract is about leadership, itâ€™s about networking, itâ€™s about having the type of support system that made my walk possible,â€? said Gillhespy. In order for every participant to be counted, they need to register. Walkers can register either before the event begins or afterward if they are not able to walk from the start. Gillhespyâ€™s goal is to get at least 151 people, the amount needed to beat the first walk event that Hanson held. â€œDonâ€™t be intimidated by the barefoot thing, and donâ€™t let that keep you from joining us on the walk because the message of awareness and action is so relevant,â€? Gillhespy said. For more information, contact Gillhespy at email@example.com.

Kristallnacht speaker recounts history Nov. 8
Dr. Michael Berenbaum, a leading expert on the Holocaust, will be coming to FGCU Monday, Nov. 8 to speak to students and faculty about this infamous time in history and the 72nd anniversary of Kristallnacht. Kristallnacht, or â€œNight of the Broken Glass,â€? is considered by some to be the beginning of the Holocaust. On this night in Germany in 1938, Nazi youth went through Jewish neighborhoods destroying synagogues, homes and Jewish businesses by burning them and breaking the windows. The event being held on campus, which is sponsored by the Center for Judaic, Holocaust and Human Rights Studies, will discuss this evening and its effects on the Holocaust. Dr. John Cox, an assistant professor of social and behavioral science, invited Berenbaum because â€œhe always puts a high priority on being able to meet and exchange ideas with students.â€? Although there wonâ€™t be any other on-campus events to commemorate this historic anniversary, Berenbaum will be speaking at St. Agnes Catholic Church in Naples the previous day, Nov. 7, at 3 p.m. Cox also advises that interested students and faculty arrive early because â€œit could be a full house.â€? Time is 2 p.m. Monday in the Student Union. â€” Eagle News staff

Eagle I ambassadors give international students a real taste of FGCU, American life By Eslande Dambrevil Contributing writer
nternational Services has put together a new program that recruits American students who help international students get adjusted to not only living in America, but also adjusted to life on a college campus. The Eagle I Ambassador Program is designed to enhance cross-cultural understanding and awareness among all students, develop cross-cultural skills for all participants and to facilitate global awareness and leaning, according to the International Services website. Some of the Eagle I ambassadorsâ€™ roles and expectations include committing to one year of involvement with an international student, assisting with new international studentsâ€™ pre-arrival information and their arrival/introduction to campus, participating with international students in non-classroom activities, and rooming with an international student, if possible. These are just a few responsibilities the ambassa-
dors are asked to take on. This program will benefit the ambassadors by helping them learn about another country and culture, make global friendships, develop cross-cultural leadership skills with a diverse group of students, expand their world knowledge and experience and to earn service learning hours. Jamie Flatley, a senior majoring in elementary education whoâ€™s an Eagle I ambassador, expressed how passionate and dedicated current ambassadors are. The ambassadors went through three training sessions to ensure that they understood the process an international student goes through when coming to America, and what the process is in doing so, Flatley said. Ambassadors were in contact with their international matches over summer for the most part, but met them all when they arrived for their Orientation. The ambassadors became the internationalsâ€™ newest friend for the time being. Several ambassadors drove to Tampa to pick up three Yantai University
matches, strictly on a volunteer basis. Several also helped pick up suitcases at Southwest Florida International Airport, proving their dedication to the program. Flatley is an avid traveler who thought Eagle I was a great way to spend her senior year by trying something new. Flately understands and knows what it feels like to be a new person in another country â€” both as a student and as a tourist; she has been in this situation many times before. Because of her passion for travel and knowledge of becoming accustomed to an entirely new perspective and way of life, Flately felt she would be very capable of helping others cope the same way she did. Flately never had an ambassador â€” she was by herself â€” and said that was not easy. The selection process for the Eagle I program will begin in spring 2011. Check back with Eagle News for appication information.
Alternative winter break in Big Easy By Sofia Shepard Staff writer
tudents donâ€™t have to settle for a regular winter break holiday; instead, they can volunteer and make a positive change in the historic city of New Orleans. On Oct. 13, SG passed a bill funding an opportunity for 31 FGCU students to volunteer in New Orleans from Dec. 13 to 17, helping with the mitigation of the current environmental tragedy of the BP oil spill in the Gulf. Any student is eligible to apply except those who have already made the trip. The application must be submitted by 5 p.m. this Friday, Nov. 5, to Stacy Hopkins, the SG executive secretary, n Student Union room 227A. The group will be working in direct collaboration with the New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity, Hands-On New Orleans and Serve Green, building houses in the Lower Ninth Ward of New Orleans and helping to rebuild and reinforce the Louisiana swamplands and preserves. â€œ(These) students will have the chance to make a positive impact on a city that has experienced great hardship in recent years,â€? said Marco Quiroga, SG director of civic engagement . â€œThis is an extraordinary opportunity that past alternative breakers have characterized as â€˜life altering.â€™â€? The SG Civic Engagement Alternative Fall Break Program Bill granted the organization $9,775, which includes registration, accommodations, charter bus, and incidental and educational material costs for the students, driver and two faculty/staff members. Because of this, there is no out-of-pocket cost for any student eligible to go. Students can find the application at SGâ€™s table on campus, or outside of Hopkinsâ€™ office in SU 227A.
1960 documentary on migrant workers to show In honor of its 50 anniversary, FGCU will be showing â€œHarvest of Shame,â€? a documentary produced in 1960 by Edward R. Murrow that first exposed the troubles of the agricultural migrant worker to the American public. The documentary was first released after Thanksgiving in 1960 so people would consider where the food they ate came from. â€œWe wanted to raise the same questions in modern audiencesâ€™ minds while also honoring the significance of Murrowâ€™s documentary,â€? Maryann Batlle, a graduate student, said. The commemorative screening, which is part of SGâ€™s Social Issues Film Series, is sponsored by SG Executive Office of Civic Engagement, SG Executive Office of Multicultural Relations and the Progressive Student Alliance. It will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in Griffin 215 on Nov. 9. Arthur Hecht, a member of the Naples Press Club who worked with Edward R. Murrow at CBS, is expected to attend, along with the Coalition of Immokalee Workers (CIW), who will present the modern-day contexts of the migrant farmworker and the agricultural industry. â€œItâ€™s an exciting time for the CIW to present because it has recently signed direct agreements with two growers (Pacific and Six Lâ€™s), which has set a historic precedent that I donâ€™t think even Murrow could have predicted,â€? Batlle said. Batlle is hoping future journalists and community members alike will learn how they can play a part in changing social injustices. â€œWe live in an interesting geographic location because it is the home of an internationally-recognized human rights movement,â€? Batlle said. â€œI hope members of the FGCU community will accept and embrace the inner power they have to promote mutual understanding and change.â€?

Paulson is president of the First Amendment Center, and the former editor-in-chief of USA Today. He began his journalism career in Fort Myers as a reporter for The News-Press. Paulson will be speaking about how our young generation can change the future of journalism. â€œThereâ€™s a young generation of tech-savvy and demanding consumers who have already revolutionized the music business,â€? Paulson said in a statement to FGCU Community Relations. â€œNow they have the power to shape the news media in similarly dramatic fashion, and the future of journalism hangs in the balance.â€?

ost students know the band Hanson and their iconic, late90’s hit “Mmmbop.” But, what they don’t know is that Hanson continues to be a powerful force in the music
scene. This month, Hanson embarks on the third leg of the “Shout it Out” tour and will be playing shows in St. Petersburg on Nov. 5 and Fort Lauderdale Nov. 6. “We are excited to come back down to the very southern part of Florida,” Isaac Hanson, the eldest Hanson brother, said. The Shout it Out tour is a celebration of sorts for the band that has been making music for a growing fan base for the last 13 years. “The people who are coming to see Hanson concerts and people who are buying Hanson records are not buying them because Hanson wrote a song called ‘Mmmbop’ 13 years ago,” Isaac said. “The reason they’re buying Shout it Out is because they like it.” But, Hanson has not forgotten the song that launched the band’s career. “We’d love for you to come see ‘Mmm Bop’ and we will play that and love it and you will hear it because it’s who we are,” Isaac said. Hanson has been touring since mid-summer to correspond with the June release of their fifth studio album, “Shout it Out.” “Shout” is the third album on Hanson’s label, 3CG Records, following two albums that debuted high on independent charts — 2004’s “Underneath” and 2007’s “The Walk.” In 2003, Hanson split with thejr major label after a long battle over creative control of the record that would become “Underneath.” The split was necessary, said Isaac, because as the industry changes, it is no longer necessary to keep up with the major labels in order to be heard. “The music business as a whole is not changing very well, but of course the music business is going bankrupt so I don’t think we should really be chasing it these days anyway.” As a result, Hanson has developed a strong following of very dedicated fans. “We’ve got incredible fans.” Isaac said. “We’ve been able to continue to tour successfully for over a decade and I don’t see it going anywhere. We’ve been better in the last few years than we’ve ever done as far as seeing progressive increases in ticket sales.” Hanson’s biggest struggle, however, has been with mainstream media outlets that often use outdated tag lines and begrudgingly praise Hanson’s albums in music reviews, articles, and interviews. “I think all of those articles are kind of silly and frustrating,” Isaac said. “The underhanded comments are kind of silly because I think (they) just need to come to a show and deal with it from a musical level and stop trying to justify it. So if you’re going to write an article, have balls and say, ‘I like this band, end of story.’” However, Isaac is quick to point out that Hanson has a lot to celebrate, and that is reflected in the theme of the “Shout it Out” album and tour. The album features artwork, mostly designed by the Hanson brothers with vivid splashes of blues, reds and yellows. “This record I think is a very personal, very expressive bold

color type of record. To have paintings that were very bold and exciting and what not was something we were really excited about,” Isaac said. Last March, Hanson offered fans the opportunity to pre-order special album packages that included custom paintings created by Isaac’s younger brothers Taylor and Zac, which were inspired by the bold colors and themes of the album. According to Isaac, these packages were designed not only as an artistic outlet for the younger Hanson brothers, Isaac said, but also as a way of engaging with their fans. In addition to the paintings, these packages included a record player, “Shout it Out” listeners guide, customized headphones, an LP version of the album and other products that offered fans the chance to experience the album and become a part of the celebration rather than just an observer. These types of packages illustrate Hanson’s commitment to actively involving fans in the process of making and performing music. In 2009, Hanson launched live web streams that gave fans unprecedented access to the band and allowed fans the chance to be a part of Hanson events in real time from any location around the world. Last June, Hanson embarked on a road trip from Texas to Los Angeles, which they called “The Detour.” They offered access through their livestream channel as well as in person by announcing listening parties and other mini-events in cities along the way. For Hanson, the community that they’ve formed with their fans through these types of opportunities is more than just a tool for self-promotion, it is also a part of Hanson’s larger vision of using their skills and resources to give back to the world. In 2007, Hanson went to South Africa with friends and were confronted with the harsh realities of poverty in developing countries. They were moved by what they saw and immediately felt a responsibility to help. After returning to the U.S., Hanson discovered Tom’s Shoes, a company founded in 2006 by Blake Mycoskie on the “one for one” premise, in which Tom’s donates shoes to kids in impoverished countries for every pair they sell. Hanson was further inspired by the company’s use of the resources that were available to them to positively affect the world. Brainstorming with Mycoskie, they came up with the idea of walking barefoot with their fans before every show on their 2007 “The Walk” tour to raise awareness about the effects of poverty and to encourage fans to take initiative in their own communities by using their own resources. Since their first walk in 2007, Hanson and their fans have walked more than 30,000 miles. Hanson recently decided that for every person who walked, they, through their organization Take the Walk, would donate $1 toward one of five causes in South Africa — including shoes, AIDS treatments and education, among others — because, Isaac explained, the point of the walk isn’t about donating money; it’s about empowering people to become leaders. “Leadership and making positive impact, unifying the world around you, and leaving it better than you found it is about being willing to go out there and put yourself in someone else’s shoes, or lack thereof.”
TREND ALERT: TOM’S SHOES By Katie Sartoris A&L editor
here’s no doubt about it, Tom’s Shoes are in. Not only are they fashionable for both men and women, when you purchase a pair of Tom’s Shoes, another pair gets donated to a child in need. You can wear them with about anything. Pair them with jeans, shorts, a skirt or even a dress. For the girls, these glamorous Tom’s will turn heads for $54. Wear them with a high-wasted skirt and tights for extra-girliness this fall. For guys, these funky black corduroy Tom’s have an embroidered mustache on the side. Wear them with a pair of beaten-up jeans for a funky look.

Thrifting: Vintage fashions on a dime Nifty Thrify Finds
By Lindsay Rodriguez Staff writer
veryone loves cheap thrills, but nothing thrills anyone more than a super-cheap, vintage purse from the thrift store. In an ideal world, money would grow from the trees in peopleâ€™s backyards and shopping malls would be the best place to shop for bargain buys, but unfortunately thatâ€™s not the real world. College students need to be extremely frugal with what little funds they have, and one of the best ways to save sweet moolah is to shop for purses, shoes, clothes, and jewelry at thrift stores. Men, this goes for you, too. â€œThrift shopping is just like regular shopping only you get it cheaper after it comes back in style,â€? said Jacque Cox, a senior at FGCU majoring in communication. â€œOne womanâ€™s trash is another womanâ€™s treasure,â€? Cox said, swinging her thrift store-bought purse in the air, for which she happily only paid $3. Shopping at thrift stores is not only money and time spent well, but itâ€™s also beneficial to the environment. When people shop at thrift stores, itâ€™s a more sustainable way to shop, and theyâ€™re not constantly consuming new products in a never-ending cycle. â€œI like thrift store shopping because itâ€™s more sustainable than shopping for new items. One personâ€™s used stuff may be valuable to another person who has a tight budget,â€? said Helen Daggett, a senior at FGCU majoring in psychology. â€œI like it because you never know what youâ€™re going to find. It can be hit or miss, but when you find something great, that means it was definitely worth your time.â€? This area is loaded with thrift stores that are all less than 15 minutes away, unless you travel down to the heart of Naples, where there are even more thrift stores to search through. The Goodwill on Three Oaks Parkway is one of the closest locations to our university, but there are more than 10 Goodwill locations in our area. Another local favorite is the thrift store on Bonita Beach Road called St. Vincent De Paul Thrift Store. Both locations have been known for finds such as J.Crew shorts, oversized Vera Bradley purses and barely used Steve Madden flats. So, grab your friends, a couple of bucks and a reusable shopping bag and head to a local thrift store. Happy hunting!

LSU Southern Review editor gives advice to aspiring writers By Jamie Gillhespy Senior staff writer
ne of the biggest challenges for emerging young writers is navigating the seemingly endless publication possibilities. Jeanne Leiby, editor of the Southern Review at LSU (a creative writing publication) and a returning presenter at this yearâ€™s Sanibel Island Writers Conference, has insight into the publishing world that inexperienced writers need. Leiby plans to address some of the more difficult challenges for contemporary writers who, as technology becomes more accessible, are increasingly turning to online and self-publishing. First and foremost, Leiby said emerging writers must remember that â€œgetting people to read your work is a business. This is true online and itâ€™s true in print.â€? B. Shea Lindner, a junior majoring in english and president of FGCUâ€™s Creative Writing Club, has attended Leibyâ€™s panels at past conferences and said that Leiby is smart and candid about what it takes to get published in the contemporary literary scene. Lindner also stressed the particular importance of online publishing as a tool to help define emerging writers. â€œThe challenge of our time is to figure out the best solutions for the digital format,â€? Lindner said. He added that todayâ€™s emerging writers have the opportunity to â€œadjust or invent a new genre especially as it relates to online.â€? Leiby also understands the increasing significance of the Internet to the publishing world, but she warns students to do a lot of research before publishing anything online. â€œIf you put work on the web, itâ€™s pre-published,â€? Leiby said. She explained that whenever something is published online, in blogs or on networking sites, the author surren-
ders what is referred to as the First English Language Serial Rights, and their work canâ€™t be published in journals. Leiby cautions students to keep this in mind, adding that many blogs have become famous in the last several years, resulting in book or movie deals for authors. But as blogging increases, emerging writers â€œhave about as much chance of (becoming famous through blogging) as winning the lottery,â€? Leiby said. However, just like many of the worldâ€™s most famous authors, todayâ€™s writers can still achieve success by first publishing in journals and magazines. Lindner explained that though our options have increased in recent years, literary journals continue to be an important outlet for future authors. â€œJournals are still our backbone option,â€? Lindner said. Leiby, whose acclaimed short story collection â€œDownriverâ€? was largely published in journals or magazines before becoming a book, agrees that journals are now â€” more than ever â€” the front line for any writer hoping to get published. â€œEverybody can self-publish (online)â€? Leiby said, â€œbut itâ€™s not that kind of credibility that the publishing houses are looking for.â€? Above all, Leiby wants emerging writers to understand that the job of the writer extends beyond the actual creation of the art. And Leiby believes that the Sanibel Island Writers Conference is one of the best in the country for emerging writers hoping to develop their writing or publishing skills. She credits director Tom DeMarchi for the Sanibel Island Writers Conferenceâ€™s success. DeMarchi, said Leiby, keeps the conference from becoming overly competitive, as other conferences often do, and she hopes that students realize that they are â€œso lucky to have it in (their) backyard.â€?
