Student Body President: Avi Assidon “It’s always hard to simplify what being student body president is,” said Assidon. Assidon was elected president in the spring semester. Majoring in biology, he aspires to be in the medical field—he interned in the surgical department at the University of Chicago. Assidon has been studying for the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT). Assi-

don is a member of the Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity and is from Sunrise, FLA. “The main thing the student body president does is represent the student body through a lot of university-wide committees,” said Assidon. According to Assidon, he serves on approximately 15 different boards, such as the FSU Board of Trustees— where he votes and gives input on all of the major decisions pertaining to the university—and the Student Technology Fee Committee, which, in the past year, allocated extra funds to keep computer labs on campus open until later hours. Through his position, Assidon feels that giving SEE SGA 2

Parking vs. Riding the bus Is one more schedule-friendly? TURNER COWLES News Editor Ask anyone around Florida State University and they’ll tell you that parking is a nightmare. What they might not tell you is how much improvement transportation has made in recent years. There are over 9,300 student parking spaces at FSU. This includes parking at Heritage Grove, the Law School and the Alumni Center. There are six bus routes that serve FSU stu-

his student opinion is crucial. “Being able to weigh in and give student input in a consistent way is really important for all of the different areas of campus that impact student life in a lot of different ways, from parking, to student technology,” said Assidon. As to be expected, Assidon’s job accumulates with his studies and creates minimal free time. Managing time with his other responsibilities can sometimes be a struggle. Though being president is a time consuming job, Assidon enjoys it. He particularly enjoys being able to work with a diverse body of people. “I work with students of all ages, administration of all ages and backgrounds and different education,” said Assidon.

In the monthlong media spectacle that was Casey Anthony’s murder trial—dubbed O.J. 2.0 by many—FSU had it’s share of the spotlight. Sally Karioth, Ph.D., R.N., professor in the Florida State University College of Nursing, testified in the Casey Anthony trial. Karioth was in London when the subpoena came from Anthony’s defense for Karioth to testify about grief. “I said to someone, ‘Who is Casey Anthony?’ because London wasn’t covering it at all,” said Karioth. “We didn’t even know there was a trial.” While being accepted as an expert in grief, which her curriculum vitae will prove, the prosecution objected over 20 times in 24 minutes of questioning. Those objections only came during the acceptance of her expertise. Once the judge decided Karioth was to be accepted as an expert on grief did questioning about grief actually begin. At one point, the defense objected to the vocalization of the prosecution’s objections. This objection, of course, was overruled. “I didn’t expect to be happy about [being objected to], despite the fact that I was really, very unimportant to this trial,” said Karioth. “I didn’t know her; I didn’t know any of the people—I was really just talking about grief. I’m sure they didn’t

FCSW seeks more women in public office BARBARA VALLENAS FSView Intern Nestled inside Tallahassee’s Attorney General building is the Florida Commission on the Status of Women (FCSW). The nonpartisan board has dedicated many years of service to educating Florida’s women on ways they can improve their lives and help their families. The group focuses on various issues like health care, women veterans, women’s finances and small business owners. Led by Executive Chair Nancy Acevedo, the 22 FCSW commissioners research various issues affecting women and make recommendations based on their findings. Their recommendations go to the governor, his cabinet and the state legislature in the

form of an annual report. Created in 1991, the FCSW aims to empower women to achieve their fullest potential and recognize women’s accomplishments. This year, the organization is set to present their 15th annual report, “Political Pearls: A Comprehensive Analysis on Florida Women in Public Office.” The report is expected to analyze trends and explain new issues affecting women who hold a public office in Florida. Typically, one of the most notable developments occured in elective offices—particularly state legislatures and congress— where women represent 20 percent of lawmakers. Kelly Sciba, executive director for FCSW, said that women should be more involved. “It’s not about politics,

it’s just about getting more women into the legislative and lawmaking process.” said Kelly Sciba.“The fact that we have a Florida Women’s Hall of Fame and we recognize the contributions women have made to the state each year, speaks loudly.” Kelly is just one of the five women who work at the FCSW. Kelly’s primary job is to contribute to the organization’s projects and committee meetings. She also hopes to educate women and improve their status in the state’s legislature. In the works for this year is “The 2012 Project,” a national, non-partisan campaign aimed at increasing the number of women in Congress and state legislatures. After the 2010 elections, only 25 percent of state

legislators and 22 percent of the U.S. Congresspersons are women. Those numbers, when compared to the female population in the U.S., saw decline for the first time in thirty years. The election of 2012 presents an opportunity to increase the number of women in office. Following the 2010 census, every congressional and state legislative district in the country will be redrawn, creating new, open seats. The goal for the 2012 project is to exceed the 1992 high of 24 new congresswomen, regain 81 state legislative seats and add 50 more women legislators. The FCSW is working on the details of the campaign for the state, but there have been other states that have studied the redistricting process and the detrimen-

It is one of two overnight permissable garages at FSU. comes back down Ocala Road. “The Seminole Express buses, which are operated by StarMetro, are paid for by that transportation and access fee that every student is assessed per credit hour,” said Hughes. Three years ago, SGA presented students with an option to increase the transportation fee by 15 cents per credit hour. The increase would have expanded bus service into the nighttime hours; buses would have run until 10 p.m., which is only 30 minutes before the Night Nole begins its route. Hughes said the overwhelming student response was “no.” Hughes said that more reliable passenger counters will be installed on each bus, Garnet route first, so Transportation Services can more accurately know what routes are busiest at what times. “Right now, we’re count-

ing on the bus driver,” said Hughes. “We’re relying on them to not only drive but to be aware of the volume of students on their buses.” Bus drivers on the buses manually input the number of students who are stepping onto their bus. This is particularly unreliable at the peak travel times and stops (e.g., the Union, Westcott and the University Center). Heather Teter, marketing specialist for StarMetro, said she knows how students are feeling about the transportation services on campus. She said she receives calls regularly from students who are waiting on their Seminole Express bus. “We realize the demand,” Teter said. “We’re on the buses; we know they’re at capacity. I tell students to call Parking and Transportation [Services]. Show them that there is a demand; then they’ll be more

likely to come to the table with some money.” Teter said StarMetro wants to expand service for students, but expansion of the Seminole Express requires funds to come from the university. “We cannot expand service—that includes adding buses and/or adding hours of services—unless FSU is going to pay for it,” said Teter. “It’s like a balancing act—the hard situation we’re in. We want to provide better service, but we also have to have the funds to provide that better service.” This could become an increase in the student transportation fee. It is not likely for SGA to propose another 15 cent increase. An increase would likely be slightly more. If SGA were to present a 30 cent increase per credit hour, the average 15 credit hour student would pay an extra $4.50 for increased bus service.

I think it’s recuperating a lot of the already funneled Spanish culture, and that is growing a lot in the U.S.,” said Milan. “It’s not really Spain but sort of the ghost of Spain on top of Spanish cultures. I did see a lot of the food, the music, restaurants—look at what you’re eating. The food in the South is all Latin-American influenced, like Tex-Mex.” Because of the important connection between Florida and Spain in history, alert students may find other experiences with the culture. The program advisor for FSU students in Valencia, Margo Yates, has experienced a different kind of royalty than most in the U.S. are familiar with. Yates is a graduate student in foreign and second language education. “I got to go have lunch in Pensacola with the king and queen of Spain,” said Yates. “It was a big banquet. They gave a speech and talked about the heritage of Spain in Pensacola. The first part of the day they did a parade through the town, and for the lun-

cheon he talked about being happy to be back and to share the culture with Florida.” For students who are curious about the “real Spain,” FSU offers a yearround study program in Valencia, attracting students from Florida State and other universities. Christina Wroten, an international business major from Belmont University who studies at the FSU Valencia location, said Spain is interesting because of its differences from the Latin-American influences in Florida. “There’s so much you can take away from simply traveling,” said Wroten. “It’s also interesting because, in Spain, it’s Spanish, but it’s European Spanish. It’s so much different from South America; it’s where Spanish people originate. “Here you are able to experience a slowerpaced life when it comes to food but also walking around—just being able to walk around by yourself and appreciate all the little things.” Of all the well-regarded

international programs offered by FSU, the Spain program has one of the most excellent reputations according to students here. Milan explained why the Valencia program is so popular. “FSU is super proud of their Spain program,” said Milan. “It works really well through word-of-mouth, and it’s because we want to work it out and make it a special thing because we think students who study abroad are brave. The easiest thing to do is to not study abroad—to stay home. So even though it is easy to be critical of study abroad—because you’re surrounded by American students—you’re still in another country and it’s a new experience. Through IP in Tallahassee and in Valencia, the relationship between FSU and Spain has really evolved. There are going to be more opportunities for people to come to Spain, and maybe work as a teacher.” For more on FSU’s study center in Valencia, Spain, view the rest of Karlanna’s article on www.fsunews.com.

SPAIN from 1 titude of warmth and socialization—not to mention a physical way of interaction and communication that expresses itself in the culture’s music and dance. “When I was living in Florida, what shocked me the most is that people called each other friends and maybe they’d see each other once every two weeks,” said Milan. “In Spanish and Mediterranean cultures, because of the warmer temperatures, it’s super important that you meet up with your friends at least once or twice a week. It makes people happier because you just get it all out. The way we communicate in Spain and in the Mediterranean is something that should be worked at in the U.S. a little more.” Hispanic culture may be prominent in Florida, but that culture is more LatinAmerican than Spanish. Most Floridians are first exposed to Spain through this modified version of a traditional heritage. “In Florida there are so many Hispanic people because of the location, so

that women incumbents present only through hardwon progress are treated fairly in the redistricting process,” Walsh said. FCSW encourages women to participate in the organization. The next quarterly meeting will be held Sept. 10 in Ft. Lauderdale. They are expecting multiple prominent speakers to address young women about leadership and achieving their potential. FCSW has a presence at Tallahassee Community College, where the group holds regular, open meetings and events to educate the public. The organization also has connections with women’s programs and women’s studies at other universities throughout the city of Tallahassee. For more information, go to www.fcsw.net.

POLICEBRIEFS

PARKING from 1 Although there has been substantial improvement in recent years, 9,300 parking spaces still only translates to one parking space for every 3.125 students with registered permits. According to those numbers, there are over 29,300 registered student drivers on campus. “Garage six will get us down to one space for every 2.718 students,” said Hughes. Hughes said this is representative of the ebb and flow of students who park on campus; there will rarely ever be all 29,000 students on campus. Garage six, being built next to the old intramural fields, will house 1,100 student parking spaces, said Hughes. The garages on the “outskirts” of campus—Spirit Way, Call and St. Augustine Streets—are all commuter lots. This means there is no overnight parking in these garages. Taking into account all commuter lots around campus, there are only 4,479 overnight permissible parking spaces on FSU’s campus. Hughes said this was the main reason for the Seminole Express. The Seminole Express was introduced in 2007. Many students in 2007 did not want to pay the increased transportation fee because they didn’t think the Seminole Express would pick up the way it has. The Seminole Express runs off-campus, running routes that go by major student housing complexes. The Garnet route, according to StarMetro, is the busiest on-campus route, and drives up High Road, to Tharpe Street, and then

tal effects it imposes on women in office. In a written statement to the Florida Senate and House Committees on Reapportionment, Debbie Walsh—director of the Eagleton Institue of Politics at Rutgers—showed redistricting in New Jersey, which is the first state to complete its legislative redistricting. The state’s legislature there is 28 percent female, but as a result of redistricting women will make up at least 57 percent of the legislators who are set to retire. Walsh compared the New Jersey results to Florida’s situation. “Although Florida has done better than many states, it still fails to represent women in anywhere near their proportions in the population,” Walsh said.I encourage you to ensure

Students charged with underage drinking in Degraff Hall Tuesday, July 12, 3:08 a.m.: An FSUPD officer responded to a call in reference to underage drinking that was taking place during the early morning hours in Degraff Hall on the FSU campus. A night staff worker reported the incident after responding to a noise complaint on the first floor of the hall. When the night staffer made contact with the residents of the room, he reported seeing several bottles of alcohol inside the room. When the FSUPD officer arrived at the room, he questioned the residents about the reported alcohol containers. The residents told the officer that they had been drinking earlier, but that there was no more alcohol inside their room at that time. According to police reports, the officer asked— and was granted permission—to search the dorm room for any remaining alcohol. While conducting the search, the officer found an empty bottle of liquor inside the freezer and also found a cold bottle of Parrot Bay Coconut Rum on the floor. The bottle of rum was about one quarter full. The residents claimed that there were other parties in the room earlier while they were drinking and that they didn’t know who the alcohol belonged to, but because it was their room, they would take responsibility for its possession. Both residents of the room were issued a Notice to Appear for Possession of Alcohol by a Person Under Twenty-One Years of Age, and the remaining alcohol was disposed at the scene. Three attempted burglaries reported in FSU parking garage on Tuesday Monday, July 11, 5:41 p.m.: On Monday afternoon, an FSUPD officer was dispatched to Parking Garage No. 3 on the Florida State campus—located on Spirit Way—in reference to a vehicle burglary. The officer made contact with an FSU student who had reportedly parked his vehicle on the second floor of the garage at 8:30 a.m. When he returned to his vehicle at approximately 5:30 p.m., he discovered damage to his driver’s side door lock, but it didn’t appear that the subjects were able to gain entry into his vehicle. Shortly after 1 p.m. on Tuesday, dispatch instructed another FSUPD officer to make contact with an FSU employee in reference to another burglary in Parking Garage No. 3. The employee reported that he had parked his Chevrolet Tahoe on the first floor of the garage at approxi-

mately 8:45 a.m. When he returned to his car at 4:49 p.m., he discovered damage to his driver’s side door. Someone had tried to punch the key hold assembly, and then tried to pull the door handle out when they were unable to gain entry. Ultimately, the subjects failed to gain entry into the vehicle. At 2:06 p.m. on the same day, another FSUPD officer was advised to contact another FSU employee in reference to an attempted burglary of his vehicle, which was also parked in Parking Garage No. 3 the previous day. According to police reports, the employee parked his Ford F-150 on the first floor of the garage at 8:30 a.m. on July 11. He returned to his vehicle at 1:15 p.m. and used remote entry to access his vehicle and proceeded to leave the garage. At approximately 2:45 a.m. on Tuesday, the employee noticed that his key hole assembly had been punched in. It appeared that no one had been able to gain entry into the vehicle, and no items were missing. All three of the victims were offered Victim’s Rights Brochures, but declined. There are no suspects in any of the cases. Underage student charged with Possession of Alcohol after leaving Potbelly’s Wednesday, July 13, 1:45 a.m.: Early Wednesday morning, an FSUPD officer was on patrol in the FSU commuter lot along College Avenue. While on patrol, the officer observed a male walking through the parking lot carrying a clear cup containing a tan liquid. According to police report, the subject appeared to be off-balance as he was walking through the lot, and also spit on a pickup truck as he was walking past it. When the officer made contact with the male, he was found to be a 20-yearold student at Florida State. The beverage in his hand was found to be a mixed alcoholic beverage, although the subject refused to identify the type of alcohol in the drink. The student indicated that the drink was forced upon him as he was leaving Potbelly’s, although he appeared to be enjoying the drink before being confronted by the officer, according the police report. Due to his uncooperative nature, the student was placed in handcuffs while the officer finished his Notice to Appear for Possession of Alcohol by a Person Under TwentyOne Years of Age.

A look back at the magic and mischief A timeline of the ‘Harry Potter’ series

BAILEY SHERTZINGER Managing Editor

Final chapter of final chapter of ‘Harry Potter’ is magic

To commemorate the final movie installment of Harry Potter, the FSView & Florida Flambeau takes a look back at landmark years in Potter history. 1997: Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone is released in the U.K. The Brits love the book.

ERIC JAFFE Staff Writer When Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was released

in July 2007 2007, I vividly remember waiting outside of my local Barnes & Noble. We were just minutes away from midnight and the line stretched an easy quarter-mile. I wasn’t dressed up like some of the more enthusiastic fans, but I could not wait to get my hands on that book. I stayed up the whole night reading—anxious to see what would become of the character I had

been following since elementary school. By morning, I was finished, and damn was I satisfied. I had a similar situation seeing Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows Part 2 at a special sneak preview this past week. Hundreds of Potter die-hards waited outside of the theater; fights broke out and wands were raised as Harry Potter/Lord of the Rings debates got danger-

heated. It was like 2007 ously heated all over again. I only wondered if the film could possibly live up to the standards set by the novel all those years ago. Well, for the first time since The Prisoner of Azkaban, it did. Equally involving and exciting, this is the first film in the series that captures the spirit SEE HP7 MOVIE 6

Tallahassee hit with Potter charm 1998: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone is released in the U.S. The American obsession begins. 1999: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is released in the U.S. in June. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is released in the U.S. in September. Every child under the age of 10 waits for the day Hagrid will rescue them from their Muggle parents.

2000: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is released in the U.S. and U.K. simultaneously. The book is also released on a Saturday to avoid conflicts with the school week. The book matures and includes interactions with the opposite sex and death— stuff the maturing audience can relate to, minus the death.

2001: The first film is released. Everyone finally learns how to pronounce Hermione’s name. 2002: The second film is released. The actor who played Dumbledore in the first two films, Richard Harris, passes away. But the show must go on... 2003: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is released. Kids begin to stay up all night to finish the book; parents congratulate themselves for having a child who loves to read.

Diagon Alley Cat swaps brooms for bikes J. MICHAEL OSBORNE Editor-in-Chief You’re less likely every day to see a professional bicycle messenger, once a staple of the urban landscape, carrying groceries in a satchel down the designated bike lane. Oddly, though, as their profession-meets-lifestyle has seen a decline, the bike messengers’ tradition of the informal Alleycat bike race has made its way onto the

streets of just about every city in America. And Tallahassee’s thriving community of urban cyclists has made sure our town isn’t an exception. “I don’t know about Tallahassee Alleycats,” said FSU senior Robbie Malz, a member of that community. “But the idea behind an Alleycat is it’s bike messengers, and they have these random checkpoints, and whoever knows the best alleys to cut through will win.” More locally, the distinct Tallahassee brand of Alleycat racing puts on almost a race per month, including the annual, giant “Talloween” Hallow-

een race (the only time of year you’ll see seven zombies biking down Railroad Avenue—hopefully), a Spring Fling couples race and, most recently, the Harry Potter-themed Diagon Alley Cat last Sunday, July 10. “I’m a big fan, you know, I grew up with [Harry Potter],” said the race’s organizer, Alison Mabee. “And [this weekend was] the premiere of the movie, so it’s like building up the hype. That was the idea—making July Harry Potter month.” Sunday’s rain-slicked race began as, all told, SEE BIKE 6

FSVIEW & FLORIDA FLAMBEAU | JULY 18, 2011

HP7 MOVIE from 5 of the book in full form. Defined by a darker mood and greater sense of gravity than the previous chapters, this eighth installment concludes the series in a manner that not only pleases the fans, but also warrants serious attention from academy voters as a true Oscar contender. The acting, direction, cinematography, writing and costume design are flawless. The greatest achievement of this series, however, remains its characters. The Harry Potter films showed us their leads growing older in real time. Apart from the tragic loss of Richard Harris (the original Dumbledore), the studio never recast once over the past 10 years. The result

of this crew’s unflinching dedication is a film series that isn’t just an adaptation of the books, but a living world perfectly translated between page and screen. Seeing this place that so many of us have grown along to close after 10 incredibly successful years brings about a gross nostalgia. I personally may not have cried (my tear ducts are reserved exclusively for movies featuring Tom Hanks), but a great majority of the theater did. Having read the book does not at all soften the film’s final blow. Tissues are highly recommended; as it did in Lord of the Rings, the ending does drag on for a while. Now, here’s my only qualm: the 3D. It looks nice,

but is it worth your money? Not really. This is a film that stands firmly on its slender two-dimensional feet, seeing it in the third-dimension is an added bonus (a big bonus at that) and not really a necessity. The effects are unbelievable, though— I can’t deny that. Here we have a nearperfect motion picture. The experience, especially for those who have followed the series until this point, is incomparable to almost anything else on the market right now. If you haven’t enjoyed the series until this point then this installment probably won’t change that, but it’s a damn good picture on every level. Mischief managed.

BIKE from 5 52 people registered at Krank It Up! in Railroad Square and were handed a card with their number on it, to stick in their spokes, and a “Marauder’s Map of Tallahassee.� The latter, made by Mabee with a ridiculous attention to detail, was a full map of the FSU side of Tallahassee marked with nine lightning-bolted checkpoints that had to be completed. These points entailed challenges like Quidditch Practice on the ground floor of the St. Augustine parking garage (a round of bike polo with a rubber Quaffle, a hula-hoop goalpost and a Golden Snitch guarded by volunteers with bike-polo mallets); a Potions Dungeon full of multicolored Jell-O shots; a trivia-showdown N.E.W.T. Test on Conradi Street; and a finish line at Hogwarts Castle, a.k.a., the Wescott Building. One more, unmarked surprise challenge involved racers dropping off a small box (supposedly containing the infant Potter) to the Dursley’s house at HCB. “At the beginning, everyone reached into a hat and grabbed a pin,� said Mabee. “They all had a different color on them, and each color represented a different Hogwarts house. If they dressed up, they get three points to their house, and if they get trivia questions right, they get a point. And if they answer their trivia questions with an accent, they get an extra point.� The winning team won the best combination of words in the English language: beer and cup-

cakes. The overall winner of the race, meanwhile, received a custom Old Field bike frame—a top-of-theline frame built by mechanic, fellow racer and owner of the Sweet Pea CafĂŠ Justin Pogge—and nearly 30 more cyclingrelated prizes were available on a first-finishedfirst-served basis. As the racers poured over their Marauder’s Maps, planning their routes and prioritizing their checkpoints, two groups started to emerge amongst the racers— namely, those who were there for a Harry Potterthemed Sunday evening, planning routes in groups, and those who wanted above all to win. “Half the people who are competing are doing it just because it’s a fun bike-related activity,â€? said Malz. “The other half does it because they want prizes or they just want to be first.â€? This former half could be pretty easily spotted by their sometimes-extravagant costumes: Someone with a working knowledge of the Potter universe could have spotted multiple decked-in-plaid Hogwarts students, Bellatrix Lestrange, a House Elf complete with a pillowcase and The Boy Who Lived himself flying down the streets of Tallahassee on Sunday. Mabee, for her part, made a convincing Moaning Myrtle, while self-proclaimed Potter geek Rosie Richeson wore gold clothes and lamĂŠ tights, covered herself in gold paint and attached wings to her back tire to

be a Golden Snitch. “[My favorite part was] the trivia, because I was really good at it—like, obnoxiously good,� said Richeson. “I’m a f**king nerd. An obnoxious, everyone-hates-me, shut-thef**k-up nerd. Like, bad—I got it bad [laughs].� Malz, though, said he was primarily there to “win free s**t.� Before the race began, he huddled over his map longer than anyone, cursing about how often he forgets checkpoints on Alleycat races and predicting how long it will take him to take off his T-shirt in the rain, which only let up after the race had finished. “I don’t know how, you know, how much people let the rain slow them down,� said Mabee. “When we were at my house, I ran into Christopher [Hill], and he said he had already wrecked twice. But he was fine.� By the end of the race, Hill would crash a total of three times. “I fell once when this guy ate it and then hit another guy—or another guy hit him—and then I was riding by and was like, ‘Are you guys OK?’ and then fell off the sidewalk and into it myself,� said Hill. “And then there was once when I was drafting off Kevin [Code], and he avoided traffic, but instead of going around the car, he just stopped and I T-boned him. And then when I came up [to the finish line at Wescott fountain], I tried to stop too fast and just slid out. I really messed up my ankle when I hit Kevin.� Hill’s tenacity in harsh

conditions did, however, wind up winning him second place, only about a minute behind first-place winner Kevin Code, who made the circa-14-mile run in a stunning 49 minutes. Justin Pogge came just a minute-and-a-half short of winning his own bicycle frame in third. Soon after Pogge crossed the finish line and the already-drenched competitors celebrated by jumping in the Wescott fountain, Malz rode into Wescott, only to yell, “Do I really have to deliver this box to HCB? F**k me.� By the race’s end, he would come in 12th place, incidentally the exact same place he came in during the Thundercat Alleycat last month. As predicted, Malz arrived shirtless, having long since taken off his rain-soaked shirt, which he said now weighed a “cubic ton.� Gryffindor won the overall competition for house points, while Richeson won both the trivia competition and the best-dressed award for her Snitch ensemble, receiving a total of four free tickets to the midnight premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 for her efforts. Richeson, who also organized an all-out Potter party at The Farside preceding the premiere, of course, already had her tickets—and, as it turns out, even more costume ideas. “I’m throwing a party— I’m dressing up as Draco Malfoy,� said Richeson. “I have a wig. I got this, man.�

‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ is back RYAN RABAC Staff Writer Larry David’s Curb Your Enthusiasm begins its new season on HBO, bringing with it the painful awkwardness, frustration, and humor fans love. The episode picks up exactly where last season left off. Larry and Cheryl are watching the imaginary Seinfeld reunion together and seem to be rekindling their lost romance. Cheryl has already made a fatal mistake, however. She left her iced coffee on the table without a coaster. “Do you respect wood?”

RENEE RODRIGUEZ Assistant Editor Crunchay Monday with Vlad The Inhaler, Ben Danner, Colin & guests—Monday, July 18, doors 9 p.m. at The Engine Room. Admission: $6, ladies free until 11 p.m. An offshoot of Duval’s weekly party Crunchay Sunday, The Engine Room is now playing host to Crunchay Monday. Dedi-

asks Larry. He cannot contain his displeasure and the renewed romance ends in disaster. Things then move ahead to one year later. Centering around Larry and Cheryl’s divorce process, the episode allows us to watch Larry screw up everything from Girl Scout cookies to an all-you-caneat buffet. For a show that has been so heavily advertised as moving to New York for this season, it was surprising to see the entire episode still taking place in Los Angeles. Jeff and Susie are still in the picture, as well as Marty Funkhouser. It is difficult to figure out why Larry’s roommate Leon is still hanging around, besides lightening the mood with a bounty of profane dialogue. Susie’s complete disgust for everyone, espe-

cially Larry, is still very entertaining. Her opening monologue rips her husband Jeff to shreds. She could be the most fun character to watch this season if it keeps up. Larry still commands the show as usual, delivering the painful awkwardness fans love. His wardrobe is noticeably bland compared to everyone else’s, consisting only of two colors of a V-neck sweater and some button-downs. So far, Curb is a little more of the same from last season, but it is still

Larry David’s (pictured with former collaborator Jerry Seinfeld) comedy series ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ returns for another season. ing, the three-piece has released an EP, Greetings from Levy Park, and recently released their first full-length, Heartless Romantics, in addition to completing relentless tours and garnering attention all over. “For all its ’90s intonations, Heartless Romantics has certain timeless qualities,” according to Punknews.org. “The songs are catchy numbers about ladies (more or less). The guitars are loud. The drums are huge. The vocals sound lived-in, but that doesn’t stop the band from jamming in plenty of ‘whoa’s,’ ‘oh’s’ and ‘ba-baba’s.’ It is, in summation, a kick-ass rock ‘n’ roll record.” Joining the band are Dune (with members of Black Cloud and The Holy Ringers), Starry Crowns, New Friends and Oh!

FSVIEW & FLORIDA FLAMBEAU | JULY 18, 2011

Weird These Days, drops on Tuesday, July 19. On the track, RAC (Remix Artist Collective) members make London’s already danceable tune that much more playful.

Mix It Up

“Baby” (Breakbot remix) by Pnau: While the original by Australian dance duo Pnau (Nick Littlemore and Peter Mayes) is enjoyable, this remix by French producer Breakbot (Thibault Berland) sounds more like French-house/funk and less like Pnau’s usual material—no complaints here.

RENEE RODRIGUEZ Assistant Editor I’ve been noticing a bit of a trend occurring in some of my past mixtapes—it seems I can’t resist including a remix in each one I’ve made so far. Thus, I’m dedicating this entire mixtape to some of my favorite recent remixes.

“Lizstomania” (Classixx remix) by Phoenix: Here, L.A. DJ duo Classixx (Michael David and Tyler Blake) mixes things up with the standout original by France’s Phoenix by cutting out guitar riffs and adding new synths, while also maintaining that special ’80s vibe.

“Why Even Try” (RAC remix) by Theophilus London: Critics have been raving over Theophilus London for some time now, and if you’re not already familiar with him, get ready to hear a lot more about Brooklyn’s rising rapper after his fulllength debut, Timez are

“Skinny Love” (Das Kapital remix) by Bon Iver: Everyone (well, almost everyone) has heard Bon Iver’s hit original “Skinny Love,” but not everyone is necessarily a big fan of singer Justin Vernon’s slow crooning. Those who aren’t might enjoy Das Kapital’s remix more. Without changing the song too

much, the rising electronic producer from South Africa gives the song more life by adding a few head-bobbing beats. “Rolling in the Deep” (Jamie xx remix) by Adele: We’ve all heard Adele’s smashing original ballad and, while it’s undeniably great on its own, this remix by British producer Jamie xx (a.k.a., Jamie Smith from London trio The xx) puts a spotlight on Adele’s gorgeous vocals. The track instantly grows on you and makes you want to move. “Get Some” (Beck remix) by Lykke Li: Having been in the biz for over 20 years, Beck is a legend among music aficionados—I shouldn’t have to convince you that he’s awesome. But, if you needed any reassurance, just check out his grimy rework of Lykke Li’s raunchy (and totally

blush-worthy) track “Get Some.” “Basic Space” (Mount Kimbie remix) by The xx: As much as I love the original by The xx, I feel like once they hit the chorus, the song loses some of its sensuality by kicking up the tempo instead of maintaining the slow, mysterious sound featured in the intro. However, fellow British act Mount Kimbie keeps that feeling alive with their great remix. “Helicopter” (Diplo & Lunice remix) by Deerhunter: It’s simply hard to avoid falling in love with this remix by producer extraordinaire Diplo and fellow producer Lunice. If you like the original, I promise you’ll love the remix more—yeah, I said it, Deerhunter fans. Sidenote: I’m still drooling over my backstage interview with Diplo and my autographed vinyl.

Before TIMELINE from 5 2004: The third film is released. Puberty has been kind to Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson—Rupert Grint is still a ginger. 2005: Harry Potter and the HalfBlood Prince is released. The fourth film is released. Harry Potter mania is in full swing, and people who have never read the books start to take interest in the movies (most of these people end up being Twilight fans). 2006: Nothing happens. The question of Snape’s allegiance becomes a hotly debated topic.

2008: Nothing. The seventh book is reread hundreds of times to relive the magic. Readers also try to figure if bringing their entire Harry Potter book collection to college would be frowned upon. 2009: The sixth film is released. Anyone who asks “Is Snape innocent?” after the movie is heckled with various curses. 2010: The first part of the seventh film is re-

2007: The fifth film is released. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is released. The book-loving community mourns the end of an era; the film-loving community wonders why everyone is so sad.

leased. It’s official—all of the actors are now attractive. July 15, 2011: The final part of the Harry Potter film series is released. “All was well.”

Casey Anthony’s trial by fire CAMERON GAUTHIER Staff Writer Regardless of what we all think about Casey Anthony, she had a right to a fair trial overseen by a jury of her peers as guaranteed by the United States Constitution. And that jury, based on lack of sound evidence (really, there was none at all aside from circumstantial bits and suspicious activities at the time of Caylee’s disappearance), found Casey innocent of firstdegree murder, aggravated manslaughter and aggravated child abuse,

but guilty on four misdemeanor counts of providing false information to a law enforcement officer. Sure, I think she deserved to be charged with aggravated child abuse at the very least, but that’s not the point. The point is that verdicts in an effective criminal justice system are not decided by our opinions and feelings or by Nancy Grace’s angry rants. Verdicts should be based on the evidence and testimony during the trial alone and the idea that someone is “innocent until proven guilty” should be respected. The angry mob of people who had nothing better to do with their lives than threaten death to 12 jurors who did, under oath, exactly what they were supposed to was far more concerning to me

Begin to fix the problem today CHAD SQUITIERI Staff Writer I, perhaps unfortunately, seem to like political discussion. When many people simply hear the word politics, they cringe and point out that it is typically nothing but arguing that gets nothing accomplished. I, on the other hand, see politics as the one realm where you can actually get things done and change things for the better. Yes, there is a fair amount of arguing, but it is only after hearing multiple perspectives on a particular matter that you can appropriately form your own opinion. This being my rationale behind why I consider politics tolerable, I often find myself in the midst of political discussion. After a few minutes of discussing a particular matter, I typically ask the person I am conversing with how they would define themselves politically. I always wait at least a few minutes to first see whether the individual actually cares about what they are talking about, or whether they are just carelessly spouting off

snippets they heard on TV. Waiting a few minutes also ensures that whatever idea the individual is presenting can be fully and fairly understood and considered—without the unnecessary label that accompanies a political party. The reason I ask at all is because I am interested to see how individuals define themselves. I often encounter many people defending the same ideas, yet, when asked where they would consider themselves on the political spectrum, they often differ. More and more when I ask this question I have run across the same response: “I consider myself a so-and-so, but when it comes to fiscal matters I am a conservative.” In other words, I have found that more and more people—despite what party they are registered to and despite how they feel on social issues—tend to define themselves as a fiscal conservative. I anticipate that this trend will continue to increase throughout our generation’s lifespan. Why is it the case that more and more people, especially in our young

than Anthony being found not guilty. It was like a scene out of an old movie where men with torches hunt for the monster (who really isn’t a monster) or the Salem Witch Trials where one person’s word was enough to get a woman hanged for being a mythological entity that isn’t even real. If Casey Anthony did kill her daughter, she was better than the Orange County forensics unit, and there’s nobody she can hurt anymore. If she didn’t kill her daughter, then justice truly was served. Executing a woman in front of a small audience of archaic-minded citizens will do nothing to change the condition of a dead child and, in this case, it will not prevent the death of any other children in the future.

Honestly, seeing the people crying and screaming outside of the courthouse after the trial made me almost as sick as Nancy Grace barking condemnations like a rabid Basset Hound on her show that night (even though I should be used to it). According to the Death Penalty Information Center, at least 10 people have been found innocent after their execution (their names and cases can be found online). With this in mind, I think it is especially important to be able to prove a suspect’s guilt beyond a shadow of a doubt when the death penalty is on the table. If we want to maintain the ability to claim that we are an “advanced” and “civilized” nation, then we must respect the legal system

whether we agree with the outcome of a trial or not, and we must not threaten harm to a jury who sat for a month in the courtroom and very quickly came to the conclusion that there was insufficient evidence. Trials by fire, lynch mobs and vigilante justice are but a few of the embarrassing scars on the history of humanity and they certainly have no modern constitutional position in Florida or anywhere else in the country. According to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, 2,000 children are reported missing every day and around 800,000 are reported missing each year. Why is it that we hear of maybe five missing children every year? In 2008, the year that Caylee Anthony was killed, there

were 1,494 children murdered in the United States. How many of those did we hear about? How many of them did anyone outside of their families (assuming the families weren’t responsible) care about? Why has our country been concerned with bringing justice to one child for the past four years when—if the number of child homicides each year remained constant—nearly 6,000 children may have been killed during that time? If the people screaming outside of the courthouse or in their living rooms really want to do something beneficial for society, perhaps they can work on reducing the number of child homicides in the future instead of wishing death upon one possibly guilty bad mother and 12 innocent jurors.

Look at It This Way by Daniel Ackerman

generation, are defining themselves as fiscal conservatives? I believe it is because we have no other choice. We are inheriting a world with some serious economic problems, and fiscal conservatism is the only solution that makes sense. Big government and huge spending outside of responsible limitations is what created the current economic climate we will inherit, and it only makes sense that to fix a problem you do not simply continue to do the very thing that caused the problem. In other words, when you find you have dug yourself into a hole, the first step is to quit digging. Unless our generation wants to allow our country to continue speeding down the tracks toward economic self-destruction, we must change the way we approach the problem. If you were to find yourself in credit card debt

because you have been spending outside of your budget for several years, you would not think the solution to the problem would to be to just continue taking out more credit cards and racking up more debt. You logically would reduce your spending to a level you could actually afford, and you would logically reduce your spending to a level where you would be able to afford to begin paying down your debt as well. This logic can be applied to the economic situation our government is currently facing. The only logical solution is to reduce the amount of government spending by eliminating waste and reducing the size of our bloated government. The recent debates in Washington about raising the debt ceiling help highlight the two ways to approach the financial issue

at hand. The one side is to continue to increase spending and to worry about the problem tomorrow when the government can tax citizens even more, thus helping to constrict economic expansion and plunge us into another long recession down the road. The other—and, I believe, future way to handle the problem—is to draw a line and say enough is enough. No more postponing the problem to the next election, and the next, and the next. Now is the time to begin fixing the economy. As a nation, we are already feeling the effects of a weaker economy; why prolong those negative side effects by prolonging the problem? Beginning to solve the problem now, and not later, ensures the one thing every generation of American’s has the privilege to know—tomorrow will be even better than today.

On this date: In A.D. 64, the Great Fire of Rome began. In 1536, the English Parliament passed an act declaring the authority of the pope void in England. In 1610, highly influential Italian baroque artist Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio died in Porto Ercole at age 38. In 1792, American naval hero John Paul Jones died in Paris at age 45. In 1911, actor Hume Cronyn was born in London, Ontario, Canada. In 1932, the United States and Canada signed a treaty to develop the St. Lawrence Seaway. In 1940, the Democratic national convention at Chicago Stadium nominated President Franklin D. Roosevelt for an unprecedented third term in office. In 1947, President Harry S. Truman signed a Presidential Succession Act which placed the speaker of the House and the Senate president pro tempore next in the line of succession after the vice president. In 1969, a car driven by Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (D-Mass.) plunged off a bridge on Chappaquiddick Island near Martha’s Vineyard; his passenger, 28-yearold Mary Jo Kopechne (koh-PEHK’-nee), drowned. In 1981, six weeks after being paroled from prison, Jack Henry Abbott, acclaimed for his book

“In the Belly of the Beast,” fatally stabbed waiter Richard Adan. (Abbott was convicted of manslaughter and sent back to prison; he later committed suicide.) Ten years ago: President George W. Bush, en route to an economic summit in Italy, stopped over in Britain as he began his second trip to Europe in a month. Five years ago: The Senate voted after two days of emotional debate to expand federal funding of embryonic stem cell research, sending the measure to President George W. Bush for a promised veto. A doctor and two nurses who’d labored at a flooded-out New Orleans hospital in Hurricane Katrina’s chaotic aftermath were arrested and accused of killing four trapped and desperately ill patients with injections of morphine and sedatives. (A grand jury later declined to indict Dr. Anna Pou and the nurses.) One year ago: Pakistan and Afghanistan sealed a landmark trade deal in the presence of U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, who pushed the two neighbors to step up civilian cooperation and work together against al-Qaida and the Taliban. A suicide bomber struck anti-alQaida Sunni fighters waiting for paychecks southwest of Baghdad, killing 45. Gunmen fired indiscriminately into a crowd of mainly young people in a rented hall in Torreon, Mexico, killing 17 people. Louis Oosthuizen of South Africa shot a 1-under 71 for a seven-stroke victory at 16-under 272 in the British Open.

Katie Rybakova (top), Vahid Mirzadeh (bottom left), Federica Suess (bottom center) and Noemie Scharle (bottom right) all put forth the effort for Florida State in 2010-11that exemplified their off-the-court roles as students, as well as their on-the-court successes as athletes.

Seniors Katie Rybakova, Federica Suess and Vahid Mirzadeh join redshirt sophomore Noemie Scharle on ITA’s All-Academic squad AL BUZZELLI Sports Editor The Florida State men’s and women’s tennis programs continue to exemplify what it means to be a student-athlete. The Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) announced the 2011 ITA All-Academic Teams and ITA Scholar-Athletes, with Florida State representing four student-athletes to the men’s and women’s lists. The women’s team was named as an ITA All-Academic Team to end their

incredible season. In order to be named as an ITA All-Academic Team, individuals who competed had to be included in a cumulative 3.20 grade point average for the fall and spring semesters. To be named an ITA Scholar-Athlete, an individual had to post a 3.50 grade point average for the current academic year. FSU was one of six ACC schools to be named to the list. Seniors Katie Rybakova and Federica Suess, along with redshirt sophomore Noemie Scharle were

named as ITA Scholar-Athletes. This is the third year Rybakova and Suess were named to the list. “I am ecstatic that our women’s tennis team once again earned All-Academic Team honors,” head coach Jennifer Hyde said. “This speaks to the commitment that our student-athletes have to not only their tennis endeavors, but to their academic responsibilities as well. “These young ladies strive each year to be as good as they can be on all fronts, and I continue to be so proud of how well each

of them represents our women’s tennis program, as well our athletic department at FSU.” This season, the trio helped lead the women’s team to their second ACC Championship match. The team posted eight straight wins during the conclusion of the season, which included wins over No. 3 Duke (twice), No. 4 North Carolina and No. 11 Virginia. Individually, the trio was named to the Academic All-ACC Team, while Suess was named the ITA Southeast Region Arthur Ashe

Leadership and Sportsmanship Award winner and earned the ACC Weaver-James-Corrigan Postgraduate Scholarship Award. Rybakova was named to the All-ACC Team and as a third team CoSIDA Academic All-American. On the men’s side, Vahid Mirzadeh, was named an ITA Scholar-Athlete for the first time in his career. Mirzadeh finished the season by being named with All-America doubles honors. He was also named to the All-ACC Team, All-ACC

Academic Team and was named as the national ITA Arthur Ashe Leaderships and Sportsmanship Award. Mirzadeh has been named to the Dean’s List three times during his career, including posting a 3.94 GPA this spring semester. “I think anytime you can win an award for your academics, it’s truly a great honor to have,” Mirzadeh said. “I’ve put in a lot of hard work not only on the tennis court, but also off the court in my academics. I think it’s really important to balance school and tennis.”

KRIKORIAN from 14 “This was a tremendous experience,” Krikorian said. “To have the chance to watch the best players in the world and to witness the playing styles for each of the different countries represented at this year’s World Cup was an experience of a lifetime.” This marks the second time that Krikorian has served as an advanced scout for Team USA working for then-U.S. head coach April Heinrichs at the 2003 Women’s World Cup held in the United States. The trip also allowed Krikorian to reconnect with many former colleagues that served as his assistant at some point in time during his 21 years as head coach at the professional and college level.

Pia Sundhage—the current U.S. women’s national team head coach—was an assistant coach with the Philadelphia Charge from 2001-02, while Erica Walsh—an assistant coach for Team USA and the head women’s coach at Penn State—served as an assistant coach in Krikorian’s first year at FSU in 2005. Paul Rogers (goalkeeper coach for the U.S. National Team) was an assistant coach and goalkeeper coach at Florida State for two seasons (2007-08). John Natale, head women’s coach at the University of Hartford and also one of the four scouts on hand along with Krikorian, was also an assistant with Sundhage for two seasons with the Philadelphia Charge.

It has been a great season for me winning the ACC and setting the ACC record and going to the NCAA and setting the NCAA record. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To be able to win the Bowerman award, it would mean the world to me. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very important that I win the award for the program and individually. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very honored to be a finalist and canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait to see the final result.â&#x20AC;? Makusha became just the fourth man in NCAA Division I history to win both the 100m and long jump, joining Lewis, Owens and DeHart Hubbard. In the process, he smashed Ato Boldenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1996 NCAA 100-meter record (9.92) with the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sixth-fastest time. He also established a new Zimbabwe national record. Makushaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s winning long jump effort ranks No. 6 all-time collegiately and is also a Zimbabwe national record. In addition to his individual gold medal efforts, Makusha ran the second leg of the winning 4x100 relay. He accounted for 22.5 of FSUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 54 pointsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;just one point shy of delivering the Seminoles a third NCAA team title. He is the first finalist for the Bowerman in Florida State history. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is unbelievably exciting,â&#x20AC;? FSU coach Bob Braman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the Heisman Trophy of our sport and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of three finalists to be honored as the track and field athlete of the year. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re real excited because it says a lot about our program and the outstanding studentathletes like Ngoni we have participating in it. This is a big deal.â&#x20AC;? After missing the 2010 seasons due to injury, Makusha made up for lost time. He won the first of four 2011 ACC championships indoors in the long jump (26-9) and followed up three weeks later with his first of four NCAA titles in the same event (26-8 ½). Outdoors, he won the ACC long jump (25-4) and 100 (9.97â&#x20AC;&#x201D;setting a new conference record in the dash) and contributed a leg to the winning 4x100 relay as the Seminoles won the team title.

Makusha named finalist for Bowerman

FSU’s Ngoni Makusha becomes just the fourth man in NCAA Division I history to win both the 100-meter and long jump AL BUZZELLI Sports Editor His name may have been difficult to pronounce before you heard of him, but with how often he’s been honored in

the news recently, it just gets easier with time. After an amazing performance at the NCAA Division I Outdoor Championships, Florida State’s Ngoni Makusha placed his name alongside track

and field icons Carl Lewis and Jesse Owens. Makusha, in what proved to be his final meet for the Seminoles, won individual NCAA titles in the 100-meter dash (9.89) and long jump (27-6 ¾),

and contributed a leg to FSU’s gold medal 4x100meter relay (38.77). The Zimbabwe native’s brilliant cap to an outstanding collegiate career earned him a spot among the three finalists for the
