Serving the Blue Water area since 1931. A public forum by and for students.

Hardwired into tech’s past Nicholas Wedyke Managing Editor From Apple to Atari, IBM to Ipods; the Port Huron Museum’s exhibit Byte by Byte: The Story of Computer Innovation showcases it all, dating back to the 1950’s. The exhibit is comprised of local collector Robert Borsuk’s personal collection of computers and machinery, and will be on display through April 28th, 2013 at Port Huron Museum’s Carnegie Center. Through partnering with Borsuk of Academic Gadgets, the museum has acquired an exhibit full of working machines and devices from the 1950s to now. SC4 Computer Science Professor, Jim Soto, recently gave a presentation at the Port Huron Museum about the internet search engine “Google.” Soto said about the exhibit, “It’s great, we tend to have very little sort of memory, history or archive of the machine’s computation; because once they’ve lived out their function or usefulness, we tend to just simply get rid of them and move on to the newest. This is something that is very interesting about technology and technological advances.” Byte by Byte hosts “handson” areas where visitors can use machines and video game

consoles of the past, along with a mainframe computer that is big enough to walk through and locate where components are used, as well as what they do. The exhibit also offers weekend family programs, along with weekly presentations on the computers and machinery displayed in the exhibit. An entire wing of the exhibit is dedicated to the origin of modern computers, and a collection of the earliest known desktops created by Wang Laboratories. Dr. An Wang (co-founder of Wang Laboratories) was a major contributor to the development of magnetic core memory; without this, the modern desktop computer would most likely not exist. The exhibit also explains that most of the United States’ advancements in computer sciences stemmed from military involvement and funding during World War II and the Cold War. “Very few people know the development and the history of computation when it comes to its, sort of, underpinnings and mathematical and philosophical logic; and even myself, I don’t know all of the history of these machines and for my own curiosity, with something that is so ubiquitous and something that

we use all the time, it’s incredibly important to know something that is so part of our lives,” said Professor Soto. The Port Huron Museum at the Carnegie Center is located at 1115 Sixth Street, Port Huron, Michigan and is open Wednesday-Sunday 11

a.m.-4 p.m. With a student I.D., admission is $5 and includes not only the “Byte by Byte” exhibit, but all levels of the Port Huron Museum. For more information visit Phmuseum.org.

The exhibit showed art from Riverview East School in St. Clair for the first time ever, thus offering opportunities for a greater range of students. Different schools submitted different kinds of work. At Yale, students were to design podiums.

Yale high school art teacher Allissa Nicol explained, “The idea is for the students to design a podium around what the teacher wants, then design a caricature for the podium.” “It is important for students to see what their peers and other schools are doing, and to draw inspiration from others,” said Studio 1219 artist Jason Stier.

During the talkback session with the staff on the Thursday showing, multiple members of the audience shared about their experience with cancer or with their loved ones who had gone through similar experiences as the character in the play. However, one impression stood out as the most frequent.

GO WEST. A new life is out there. PEOPLE COME HERE BECAUSE THEY’RE LOOKING FOR SOMETHING. It’s all about discovery. What they find is a challenge—something unexpected—that opens up new frontiers.

A lot of people who have become successful—skilled, happy, wealthy and powerful—started by heading West. Western Michigan University. It’s your turn to GRAB THE REINS.

Joe Munoz, a student studying business in SC4 summed it up: “That is what happened. I wasn’t watching the play; I was watching my mother-in-law passing away.” He concluded by saying “at the end, I went to the actress in tears and thanked her for bringing me closure. She put her arms around me and even though we didn’t know each other, it felt like I was hugging my mother-in-law for the last time.”

Marriage equality paints Facebook red Nicholas Wedyke Managing Editor Facebook has lit up red with supporters of marriage equality showing their support with a single image of the traditional “Human Rights Campaign’s” logo depicted in red being used as profile pictures. The image originally shared by the HRC has caught on recently, as droves of activist protest during the beginning of two major samesex marriage law hearings outside of the United States Supreme Court on Tuesday. The HRC is currently the largest lobby group for LGBT rights, and

Garrett Summerville Copy Editor As the possibility of fracking in Michigan becomes increasingly more likely, citizens are banning together to prevent what they believe to be a catastrophic degradation of the environment. But are they just buying into politicized hype? Fracking is a method of obtaining natural gasses, such as methane, and oil using hydraulic pressure. Unlike vertical drilling, horizontal fracking can access resources that are deeper and harder to reach by injecting various substances, including water and chemicals, into rock formations. Oil and gas deposits are released from the earth when the rock formations break apart. Opponents of fracking are

when the organization shared their traditional navy and gold logo with a pink and red twist Monday, the protest started online early. Actor and LGBT rights activist George Takei shared the HRC’s image on his personal Facebook account with the description “For those friends wondering, this special ‘red’ equality symbol signifies that marriage equality really is all about love. Thanks to the Human Rights Campaign for this effort. Please consider changing your profile today in support—esp if you are a straight ally.” The post had over 40,000 “likes” as of Tuesday morning, according to Mashable.com.

massive, industrial-scale fracking planned for Michigan.” The Committee to Ban Fracking is proposing a legislative ballot that would change Michigan’s state statute, not the state constitution. They claim that Michigan currently grants oil companies special protection to ensure “maximum production” of oil and natural gas. The committee would change Michigan priorities, and place human health and environmental protection over economic benefits. Fracking proponents claim that it has been used for decades, and concerns are only a result of media hype and politics. However, this is not entirely true. Vertical fracking has been used for years to obtain recourses, but horizontal fracking, which the Committee to ban Fracking is trying to prevent,

has only been practiced for the last few years and is still being studied. The EPA plans to release an official report by next year on horizontal fracking. In response to the concerns of hazardous chemicals being released into the environment, they said, “the EPA has not made any judgment about the extent of exposure to these chemical when used in hydraulic fracturing fluids or found in hydraulic wastewater, or their potential impacts on drinking water recourses.” At this point, we don’t know what horizontal fracking will do to the environment. In the future, we may learn that it is safe, and a statewide ban would prevent future benefits. However, if we start fracking in Michigan before we know all the results, the effects may be irreversibly damaging.

Better safe than sorry? skeptical of the entire process. When fracking was just stating to be used, reports of hazardous waste and chemicals appearing in fresh water recourses began to surface in the media. Fresh water is a resource that Michigan takes great pride in. The possibility of polluting our lakes is not worth the benefits of fracking for some state residents. The Committee to Ban Fracking is a ballot question committee that has recently formed in order to stop any form of fracking from happening in Michigan. On their official website, letsbanfracking. org, they say, “We believe that only a ban on fracking will protect our health and safety, our precious fresh water, communities, parks, forests, schools, businesses, farms, tourism, wildlife, and environment from the devastating harms of the
