news LS suspension shortened to one year But students lose option to appeal Brad Jamison Staff Writer 924219150@gsc.edu The University System of Georgia has mandated that all schools change the current three-year suspension policy to a one-year suspension policy, including Gainesville State. All USG schools have until fall 2012 to enforce the change; GSC is implementing the policy effective immediately. The policy applies to any Learning Support student who receives a “U” in their exit-level (0099) class. Learning Support students are given two attempts for reading and English and three attempts total for LS math. Under the previous policy, students who failed to meet these requirements were allowed to appeal for an additional attempt. The new USG policy does not allow for any additional attempt. Dede deLaughter, interim director of Learning Support, says that USG does look at whether or not students come back after three years. Unsurprisingly, very few do. “That’s not hard to understand,” deLaughter said. “Three years is a long time to be hanging. That could be the reasoning behind the new policy: make it punitive, somewhat, have consequences, give students one year --three consecutive semesters -- to make any changes they need to before applying for readmission.” Vice President of Academic Affairs Al Panu feels like the changes are positive. “It shortens the time period over which a student can try again,” Panu said. “With a three-year suspension, there is a greater possibility of losing hope. (The changes) keep the hope alive of returning with a renewed pursee “LS suspension” page 5

Student gets picked for NASA program Brad Jamison Staff Writer 924219150@gsc.edu

Gainesville State College student John Luecke is one step closer to achieving his dream. Luecke will travel to Johnson Space Center in Houston in late October as part of the National Community College Aerospace Scholars program sponsored by NASA. Luecke says he has had a life-long interest in NASA. “My mother used to take us to the library and I would spend all of my time in the 500s (science) section.” He said having seen Neil Armstrong walk on the moon also boosted his interest. Luecke, who has maintained a 3.7 GPA while balancing a full-time job and four children, is among 89 students from around the country taking part in the program. The students will spend three days forming fictitious companies centered around Mars exploration. These "companies" will develop and present Mars rover prototypes as well as business plans. Participants will also be briefed by NASA astronauts and given a tour of the space center. Although Luecke has always hadan interest in NASA, he admits "a lot of things in life got in the way." A successfully recovered alcoholic and ex-Naval person, Luecke said, "My wife and I separated three years ago. That's when I got myself together. The man upstairs said, 'OK, John, you've got one more chance.'" Luecke was determined to do something with his life. “I wasn't going to be flipping burgers at the age of 50. I was going to go back and do what I should've done straight out of high school." After a friend told him about the HOPE grant certificate, Luecke enrolled as an engineering major at GSC. First enrolling in the personal trainer certificate, Luecke soon switched to the geographic information systems certificate on the advice of Professor J.B. Sharma. "John lives up to the ideal of a perpetual scholar," Sharma said. "He has a family and a job, has been taking very challenging courses with meritorius results. His love of learning is an inspiration to all of us." Lueke completed his GIS certificate this past summer. Amid the excitement of his trip to Houston, Luecke commended NASA for many of their findings to "green" jobs" we have

today. "People (who advocate "green" projects) don't understand that some recycling technologies and monitoring the planet itself all come from the space program. We wouldn't even know about the hole in the ozone layer if it weren't for NASA." With the program focused around the Mars rover, Luecke was optimistic about the possibilities of Mars exploration. "Where there's water, there's life. And they've already found water there, so I'm sure that there's some sort of bacterial life form." He went on to cite Europa's (Jupiter's moon) under-ice ocean as the "perfect example" of the possibility of life outside of Earth. He hopes to be part of the engineering team to send the first manned mission to Mars. “Don't let anybody tell you that you can't do something," he said. "The worst thing you can do is fail and you learn just as much from your failures as you do from your successes." After graduation, Luecke plans to attend the Georgia Institute of Technology for aerospace engineering.

Students, faculty uncover Lake Lanier’s history Kayla McGee Layout Editor 924204352@gsc.edu There is an entire town under Lake Lanier--maybe several. Houses, churches, and old businesses lay rotting under the water. Gas stations stand with their carports still intact. There’s even an old racetrack-- its concrete bleachers were visible during the worst of the drought that hit Georgia this past decade. This is what the popular belief is, anyway. It is true, those concrete bleachers were visible in late 2006, but the truth about what lies beneath the lake is more complicated than that. Students at Gainesville State College are now participating in a project to help bring the truth to the surface. The project aims to map out the lake and the land as it was before the lake was there. The focus is not just on the physical geography, though, and it’s not just our geographic information science students working on it, either. “It’s going to be a very interdisciplinary project,” J.B. Sharma, who teaches physics and remote sensing said. The project involves many departments on campus, from the sciences to social sciences, especially students and faculty from the history department. In fact, Sharma is not the only faculty member heading this project. Dee Gillespie, who teaches courses in history and social work, helps run the program. The project, which has been going on for about three years now, is funded by GeorgiaVIEW. The project receives $5,000 in funding each year. The group working on the project faces an immense challenge, which is one of the reasons this is the first year they have announced their work. “We just weren’t ready,” Sharma said. So what is really under Lake Lanier? Fifty-six thousand acres were bought and 700 families throughout Hall and Forsyth county were displaced when the Army Corps of Engineers dammed the Chattahoochee River and built Lake Sidney Lanier. That does seem like a lot of people being forced to move, but it only works out to an average of one family for every 80 acres. Of course, some families owned much more than 80 acres and some owned much less. In fact, the first homeowner who chose to sell his land to the government and move was Henry Shadburn, who sold 100 acres near Young Deer Creek in Forsyth County.

(Above) A map showing an example of students’ work at the lake. (Right) Robert David Coughlin, author of Lake Sidney Lanier: A Story, recently visited the college and discussed the construction of the dam. The government paid Shadburn $4,100, an amount roughly equivalent to $37,600 today according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. This may not seem to be much, but it was more than the land speculators who were invading the area were offering, said David Coughlin, historian and author of “Lake Sidney Lanier: A Story.” One reason the land might not have been worth much was its development. The image the public seems to have of the community under Lake Lanier is of a small but bustling town with a busy main street with restaurants, shops and homes that were modern and placed close to each other. This is not the truth. In reality, the community that was evacuated and flooded was a sprawling, rural community full of farms and woods and houses that were not wired for electricity and did not have indoor plumbing. In fact, the first plans the Corps made for the dam placed it near Roswell in a more heavily populated area. The dam was moved to an area near Buford because of the smaller population. The government was also careful in the way it bought the land. There were

Page 4, Oct. 21, 2010

people who were unhappy about having to move, some so angry they drove government officials off their land with shotguns, Coughlin said. And in these cases the government did exercise eminent domain. However, they were fair in their payments and offered more money to families who had obviously put more money into improving their land. They also offered families complete access to the shore after the lake was finished, even though the lakefront is technically owned by the government, if the families had spent their own money to have their property surveyed. Also, a property’s proximity to things like churches and schools affected their worth. The idea that there are buildings left under the lake is not entirely true. Members of the Corps ended up destroying a lot of the structures in the area because they could have proven hazardous if left behind. Many of the buildings were made simply of wood and other materials that would have rotted in the water and, if a house rotted and floated to the surface of the lake, it could prove to be a navigation hazard for boats and other watercraft. Buildings made of stone or other mate-

rials that would not rot were left as they were. The racetrack bleachers visible during the drought in 2006 were made of concrete, for instance. So, while there may be some truth to the idea that there is an entire community under Lake Sidney Lanier, the story has gotten a little corrupted as time has passed. There are some buildings left standing and some evidence of things such as roads and old bridges, but there is not much and what little there is is spread much farther and wider than most people think. page layout Kayla McGee and Lauren Blais


news New secretary finally in place for SGA Nic Smith Staff 924184027@gsc.edu A few weeks ago during one of its weekly meetings, the Student Government Association voted on who was going to be the new secretary. And the winner is Sean Magee, a student and member who was very involved in SGA prior to the election. Magee received more votes than the other two candidates, Matthew Chavez and Jonathan Ojeda. The qualifications for becoming secretary are that the student must be currently enrolled at GSC at the time of election, a member of SGA in the semester in which the election takes place, have a minimum GPA of 2.25 and must be in good judicial standing with GSC. The reason for a vacant secretary position at the start of this semester was because the position was split into two; a secretary and a treasurer. In the past the secretary was also the treasurer. David Spencer ran for treasurer last year which in turn created an open position to be filled. SGA President Andrew Wilkinson sent out the open position, asking members to nominate

current or prospective members of SGA to run for secretary. Each candidate had to prepare a five-minute speech that told the general assembly why they should become secretary. The basic duties for the new secretary are to take the minutes for all scheduled SGA meetings and executive council meetings, coordinate the display of the minutes to the general membership and to the public via the SGA website, to present minutes from the last meeting for approval by the SGA and to keep and maintain attendance records of meetings and events. SGA is branching out and trying to create and incorporate a more structured system. The new tasks for Sean are mainly internal matters involved with SGA. Wilkinson said that he is pleased with the progress Sean is making. “Sean is doing great,” Wilkinson said. “I’m really happy with Sean. He is organized and competent. We’re all excited to have somebody whose purpose is a lot clearer than I think we’ve had in past SGAs. He’s hit the ground running and has been doing really great since being elected.”

Regents crack down on undocumented students Daniel Dove News Editor 924154345@gsc.edu

Amid concerns that undocumented and illegal students are flooding the university system, the Georgia Board of Regents passed controversial measures last week to keep such students out of Georgia colleges and universities. The regents voted Wednesday, Oct. 13, to change the application and admission process for University System of Georgia Schools. Under the new regulations, any institution that has had to turn away qualified students in the past two years will not be allowed to admit undocumented students. Additionally, any student who is determined to be undocumented will be required to pay out-ofstate tuition. These new provisions will go into affect for the Fall 2011 semester. According to a report by the BOR, of the 310,000 students enrolled in the University System of Georgia, only 501 are undocumented. All of these students are paying out-of-state tuition. Following the regents' decision, Jerry Gonzalez, executive director of the Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials, was not happy about the ruling. "We're clearly very disappointed by this. This makes Georgia the second state in the country to ban access to higher education," said

Gonzalez. "The Board of Regents went against their mission of promoting access to higher education." "Despite the fact that [the students] are academically qualified, despite the fact that they are paying more than their fair share for tuition, they are being denied access to education," said Gonzalez.

“I’m actually a bit surprised at the decision made by the board today. I couldn’t disagree with this decision more.” Taylor Landham, student

"The committee did say they were conflicted with this, but they chose to act as immigration cops anyway. They're putting the institutions of higher learning in a position to enforce federal immigration laws," said Gonzalez. Supporters of the legislation were pleased with the ruling. "Today the Board of Regents went one step closer to the original intent of the 2006 of the Georgia Security and Immigration Compliance Act. I'm very happy to see what the Board of Regents has done today," said D.A. King of The Dustin Inman Society. "Post-secondary education is

not something we can offer to the entire planet," said King. "I'm proud to see that the Board of Regents have taken a very reasonable course today. I do not believe they have gone far enough, but I predict the [Georgia] legislature will finish the job in January."' "We have to have a priority on who we allow into our limited seating classrooms," said King. "With what the Board of Regents has done today, we are only excluding illegal aliens from five universities." Leading a resistance to the provisions pass by the BOR was a group of students and faculty from Gainesville State College. "I must say I'm actually a bit surprised at the decision made by the board today. I couldn't disagree with this decision more," said GSC student Taylor Lanham. Lanham, who is involved with the Students for a Progressive Society, was poised to present the regents with a petition containing more than 4oo signatures of students, faculty and other concerned citizens of Georgia. However, the regents would only accept an earlier version by e-mail which contained fewer signatures. Lanham said that he and and others at GSC will continue the fight to raise awareness and promote equality. "The next step is spreading awareness," said Lanham.

“LS Suspension” con’t from page 3 pose,” said Panu. Students who are suspended for one year may not enroll in any other University System of Georgia school. USG is comprised of 37 schools. While the policy is tough, deLaughter says the most recent data (2004) shows that 79 percent of all first-time LS reading students passed on their first attempt. 77 percent passed math and 72 percent passed English.The Learning Support department contacted all students who were suspended as part of the old policy. “We sent out postcards to those who could reapply and who had served at least two semesters of their threeyear suspension,” says deLaughter.

“We wanted to let folks knows that they don’t have to sit out for three years.” She went on to say that the Oct. 4 GSC website release of the new policy was aimed towards students who were already suspended. With many Americans returning to school during the poor economy, the suspension policy as a whole might seem untimely. “ The timing is a little ironic,” admits deLaughter, “When the economy is bad, historically, that’s when enrollment in higher education and technical colleges -- especially community colleges -- goes up. A one-year suspension, works in their (LS students) favor as opposed to the three-year suspen-

sion.” Nearly one-fourth of GSC’s students are non-traditional students. Many of these students receive student loans. Even with the oneyear suspension policy, many students who are not enrolled in a school for more than six months must begin paying back those loans. DeLaughter encourages students who are in any Learning Support class, particularly those on their final attempt, to meet with her and their advisor. She encourages anyone who is on their final attempt and are struggling to meet with Disability Services to see if there could be a subtle learning disability.

“I’m really similar to everyone else. I generate a lot of garbage, the only difference is I don’t throw it away,” said artist David Hamlow at the start of the “Wild Culture: Ecological Perspectives” Art Exhibit Sept. 23. Hamlow displayed his piece “Archival Structure 4” in the Roy C. Moore Art Gallery as part of the exhibit. At first, the piece almost looks like a giant mass of trash. Closer inspection reveals it to be several boxes pieced together to form the well-designed structure. “Archival Structure 4” resulted from Hamlow saving all kinds of cardboard packaging . Because he couldn’t recycle in the neighborhood that he lived in, “I made a commitment to keep it all until I could recycle,” said Hamlow. Many boxes are filled with things like receipts, movie tickets, and photos. “It becomes a conversation about our daily lives,”

said Hamlow. Also part of the Wild Culture event was a donkey named Aliass and her owner, Karin Bolender. Starting from Lake Lanier in Flowery Branch, Bolender led students by foot down Buford Highway to the GSC amphitheater. The students who participated are involved in a group of classes that work together to teach common objectives called the Wild Culture Learning

“(We saw) the world though a donkey’s point of view, not being able to speak for yourself...” Katie Logue, student Community. Bolender used to walk her donkey for weeks at a time along roads and live off of what she and Aliass could carry on their backs. She did this to experience nature in an intimate way and to view the world as an animal would. During the commute, Bolender shared her ex-

perience with the students so they could see what they were missing when they drove by a seemingly normal road every day. The students were to be silent during the trip except on breaks. Why the silence, though? “Seeing the world through a donkey’s point of view, not being able to speak for yourself and paying attention to little noises,” Katie Logue said. A donkey cannot stand up to the constantly changing surroundings it is placed in. The hike itself was a part of the art for wildlife. The people were like pieces of art in motion for everyone to see. While most people ignored them, some did stop to ask questions. There were people who were: “confused, angry and acted like they saw this everyday,” Andrew Minnick said. Though it was a hard walk because of the heat, the students still had a great time and learned a lot. Finally, the donkey walked up to the art show in the Dunlap Mathis Building.

“You may have never hit her, but the names you called her no one should be called,” a white t-shirt scrawled in red ink says. Students who have walked through the Student Center during the past month have probably noticed the clothesline full of t-shirts. The Social Sciences division has taken an interactive approach to spreading awareness on campus with the Clothesline Project. The Clothesline Project is a nationwide project started in the 1950’s to acknowledge domestic violence. The project gets its name from the women who would share their stories and give each other support while hanging up laundry. “This has morphed into just a symbol of speaking out,” Melani Freeman, exhibit organizer and professor in the School of Social Sciences, said. October is domestic violence awareness month. All are welcome to contribute to the Clothesline Project exhibit. The shirts are provided and are available on the Student Center stage. At GSC, the stories range from personal experiences of overcoming domestic abuse to drawings and poems. Ashley McCabe, a student, stopped by the stage to read the shirts. “It’s so important that this is here,” she page layout Kaitlyn Frizzell

(It happens) a lot more often than people think it does.” Gateway, a safe house for those fleeing their homes to escape abuse, has donated yellow shirts to the event that hang in the center section of the clothesline. The organization is also responsible for a program at GSC that collects used or damaged cell phones in a bin on the stage. These phones will eitiher be refur-

bished or placed in care packages. They may be utlized as 911 phones for those trying to escape offenders or sold to government institutions to raise funds for those victims. “Gateway is the only local sponsor for the phones in Hall County, but people can continue to donate their old phone to any Verizon Wireless branch, and it’s called the Hope Line,” Freeman said. The School of Social Sciences is sponsoring the Domestic Violence Sympo-

sium on the 27th. It will be two hours long this year opposed to the one hour last fall. “We felt like last year we kind of ran out of time and there was more interest for extra time” Freeman said. The symposium will begin with Dr. Donna Echols, a psychology professor, taking a look inside the mind of the offender to see the signs of abuse before they start. The director of Rape Response will inform about the laws in place to protect victims, even in marriage. There will also be a speaker from the Center of Hope and Healing discussing the correlation of child abuse and domestic violence. The second hour will include speakers from law enforcement officers of Hall County. After the symposium, the School of Social Sciences will offer counseling referrals and resources for students that may be having problems with domestic violence. “Just educating them about domestic violence is not nearly enough. Offering solutions and interventions after the symposium is really where our main focus is,” Freeman said. The Clothesline Project exhibit will hang until the end of the month. “The shirts really represent overcoming adversity. All those shirts, minus the ones in yellow, are GSC students. They are doing something positive with their lives, though many might have suffered the abuse as a child. That’s a strong statement about the human spirit.”

For the first year ever, CAB introduced the fall version of Spring Fling on campus. “We wanted to something in the

fall that would be fun for students. We pulled it together in two weeks. It was easy to plan,” said CAB leader Etienne Joubert. Like Spring Fling, Fall Fling includes activities for students to interact each other such as ultimate frisbee, soccer, volleyball, and football.

Page 10, Oct. 21, 2010

Along with sports, henna tattooing by CAB member Genna Williams, caricatures and an inflatable Jumptasic slide were available for students. CAB was able to have the event without spending a lot of money. Joubert said that while the Spring Fling cost around nine thousand dollars, the Fall

Fling only cost about 11 hundred. Students like Jenna Pulliam turned out for a break in their day to participate in the event. “I like this.” she said. “I had fun going on the bouncy slide and everyone’s having fun. It is good way to make new friends.” page layout Lauren Blais

Taking political matters seriously Hannah Garrard Staff Writer 924210191@gsc.edu This October Comedy Central’s late night show comedians, Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart, are taking their political puns to new heights! Stewart will be holding the “Rally to Restore Sanity” along with Colbert who is planning the “March to Keep Fear Alive” on Oct. 30 at the National Mall in Washington D.C. The rally and march will take place from noon to 3 p.m. Rain or shine with no admission fees. Jon Stewart clarifies this rally is for Americans, “who feel that the loudest voices shouldn’t be the only ones that get heard; and who believe that the only time it is appropriate to draw a Hitler mustache on someone is when that person is actually Hitler.” Some of the conservative right media are criticizing both Colbert and Stewart, believing they are making a mockery out of conservative tea

party activist Glen Beck’s rally back in March. Stephen Colbert is even making a joke out of mockery itself, by trying to convince people to attend his march as opposed to Stewart’s rally, both taking place at the same time. As always the two comedians are playing up their supposed rivalry, but no doubt they will both be there together along with other special guests. Members of the GSC Democrats are pumped and ready to go. Any students interested in attending the rally can email the GSC Democrats at gscdemocrats@ gmail.com about joining them on the trip to D.C. With election season fast approaching in November what better way to make a statement. Being that its Halloween weekend Stephen Colbert suggests you wear a costume and come as your biggest fear! Thousands are expected to attend; as for me I have my Colbert tote all packed!

Fall has always been my favorite season. The days grow shorter and cooler as the sweltering summer sun of Georgia retreats earlier each evening, the pace of life slows, food and drink become abundant. Beer is no exception. Breweries all over the world shift their attention to their autumn offerings with great care, craftsmanship and pride. These Oktoberfest ales are brewed with cinnamon, pumpkin, allspice, brown sugar and nutmeg, much like the foods that they pair strikingly well with. Keep in mind, however, that the alcohol content (ABV) of these beers is quite higher than the 4.2 percent ABV of Bud Light and should be drunk with that in mind. Over the last month or so, I’ve had the opportunity to taste some of the greatest beers available in Georgia. Each beer is available through November or December. I hope you seek out these and other artisanal beers and enjoy them as much my friends and I enjoyed drinking and reviewing them. As with any great Oktoberfest beer, they are best enjoyed with food, friends and Georgia’s crisp fall nights. 5. Pumking (9 percent ABV) Southern Tier Brewing Co., Lakewood, NY Available only in 22 oz. bottles, this ale is a great way to break yourself into the Oktoberfest scene. Upon first sip, the robust taste of roasted pumpkin seeds coats the tongue, immediately followed by a wash of caramel, vanilla and brown sugar. A slight bitterness follows with a warming presence. This is tasty ale pairs well with carrot cake or – the obvious choice – pumpkin pie. 4. Oktoberfest Ale (5.5 percent) Bell’s Brewery, Inc., Kalamazoo, MI As one pries off the cap, a soft and inviting aroma of coriander, brown sugar and spices fills the nose. When poured into a pint glass, the smell strengthens and the head (foam) of the beer dwindles a little too quickly for my liking, but after one sip, apologies are accepted for the lacking of foam. A crisp, nutty and sweet flavor spreads over the taste buds and begs to be followed by another. My omnivore

Special

Breweries all over are bringing out their Oktoberfest ales. Smuttynose’s Pumpkin Ale is the perfect balance of cinnamon, allspice, malt and subtle pumpkin flavors. roommate suggests this beer with grilled sausage or a fatty steak. 3. Punkin Ale (7 percent) Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, Milton, DE Delaware’s first and only brewery has a 15-year-old tradition of unique and flavorful ales. This particular recipe won the brewery First Prize in the state’s 1994 Punkin Chunkin’ Recipe Contest – six months before Dogfish Head became a brewery. While their year-round offerings include a 9000-year-old recipe for Chinese beer and a fermented beverage that is believed to be King Midas’ burial drink, Dogfish shows no sign of surrender with their bold and benevolent autumn ale. Brewed with local and organic pumpkin meat, brown sugar and spices, Punkin Ale is a libation that is deserving of a seat at your Thanksgiving dinner table. Dogfish Head president, Same Calagione, suggests that this beer be drunk with turkey, roasted duck and stuffing. If you’re looking for a beer that drinks like a meal, then look no further than this bold and beautiful ale. 2. Paulaner Oktoberfest-Marzen (5.8 percent) Paulaner Brauerei GmbH & Co. KG, Germany Germans might not have invented beer, but damned if they didn’t perfect it. Since 1634, Paulaner has been serving up signature ales. In particular, this ale excites me every time I’m granted the opportunity to sample it. With a well-balanced blend of spices

and green apples, this brew is one that can be rivaled with the best of ‘em. Imagine Mom’s pumpkin pie, dusted with that thin layer of spice and brown sugar, accompanied by a subtle layer of tart, green apples. If that ain’t enough, add a dollop of whipped cream to the mix and it’s the perfect comparison to this decoratively crafted ale. 1. Smuttynose Pumpkin Ale (6 percent) Smuttynose Brewing Co., Portsmouth, NH Out of the several ales I tasted throughout this process, Smuttynose’s Pumpkin Ale was the one I found myself going back for numerous times. After being poured into a pint glass, this ale boasts its flavor profiles and accumulates a lush, dark orange head. Cinnamon and allspice hit the nose first, followed by a warm, toasted malt scent. While the smell is bold enough on its own, the taste and drinkability of this beer is the clincher – the cinnamon, allspice, malt and subtle pumpkin flavors could not be balanced more perfectly; no one flavor prohibits another from its moment of glory on the taste buds. For the vegetarians and vegans, this beer goes extremely well with stuffing and vegetarian shepherd’s pie. The meat eaters will find that this ale compliments a golden roasted turkey. If you find yourself buying a six-pack of this delightful ale, you might want to consider dividing it among friends. Otherwise, you won’t remember its great taste in the morning.

Is Facebook taking over our lives?

It’s Kind of a funny story...

Even though this is another predictable coming-of-age film, its characters and acting, especially by Gilchrist and Galifianakis make it well worth seeing. Hannah Garrard Staff Writer 924210191@gsc.edu Jennifer Booth

Callesha Wright checks her Facebook page on campus. Statistics say that people spend more time on Facebook than any other website. Jennifer Booth Photo Editor 924183378@gsc.edu Entertainment Weekly recently asked, “How on earth did we stalk our exes, remember our co-workers' birthdays, bug our friends, and play a rousing game of Scrabulous before Facebook?" Nielsen Online has reported that people spend more time on Facebook than on any other Web site. What did we do before Facebook? We talked to our friends at school, we called them on the phone, and we wrote them notes in class. Now we write notes on our friends’ wall, and talk to them

on chat, and maybe even tag them in an embarrassing photo For most of us Facebook connected us to our world in a new way in Sept. 2006 when registration was open to everyone. That’s right: Facebook used to be closed to everyone but college students with a valid college email address. Facebook has allowed us to be connected to friends and family, near and far, 24/7. With mobile apps, smart phones and a constant connection to the Internet we are constantly checking and updating Facebook. “I do think Facebook is consuming our lives.” Callesha Wright said. “I'm constantly

checking it and by the time I look two hours are passed and no homework is done.” Facebook not only connects us to people we know, but provides entertainment through games such as Farmville. “I check on my vegetables a lot,” Jordan Hobbes, a student and Facebook user, said. Student Jonathan Cain uses Facebook on his phone and can keep up with friends anywhere, at anytime. Which seems pretty normal. “(I)t’s not weird to check Facebook in any situation,” he said. So is Facebook consuming our lives? “For some of us, yes,” Cain said.

It is Saturday night in New York City and 16-yearold Craig (Keir Gilchrist) is shocked and frightened to find himself standing on a narrow beam of a busy bridge, staring down at moving cars, contemplating why he shouldn not just go ahead and jump. He rides to the nearest hospital for help and pleads to be admitted. Craig realizes this rash decision might be a mistake when he winds up in the adult center, surrounded by mental patients with serious problems. He quickly recants his suicidal tendencies as not that serious after all. The head psychiatrist explains he must stay for at least five days until his first evaluation and because the teen facility is currently undergoing renovations, he will remain in the adult mental facility. While in the facility Craig befriends Bobby played by Zach Galifianakis, who is well known for his hilarious performance in The Hangover. Although at times humorous with his deadpan stares and snide comments this is not Galifianakis’ usual role. He proves his versatile ability as an actor by creating Bobby a very complex and endearing character who shows Craig what real emotional wounds are and just how much Craig has to live for.

Special

Craig also makes a connection with Noelle (Emma Roberts), another teen in the facility and as their budding romance progresses they find yet another reason to stick around and enjoy life. Gilchrist does an excellent job portraying the pressures often placed on kids in modern day America by competitive intercity schools. Throughout the film Craig explains his insecurities and frustrations of lacking a specific passion and focus, unlike his friends who seem to have it all figured out. While in an arts and crafts workshop at the mental facility Craig realizes his amazing artistic abilities, which have been suppressed since childhood. However, the pivotal point of the film takes place when Craig participates in the music workshop taking the lead vocals, belting out “Under Pressure” expressing what the film is all about. The film is an adaptation of Ned Vizzini’s novel, drawing from his own personal experience growing up. Even though this is another predictable coming-of-age film, its characters and acting, especially by Gilchrist and Galifianakis make it well worth seeing. Their performances bring a bit of depth and reality to this empathetic dark comedy and remind us of a simple truth often forgotten; the joy of simply living and discovering that life is not something to take so seriously.

New laws aim to stop texting & driving Bridget Elliott Copy Editor 924200838@gsc.edu Texting and driving has become a hot topic in both local and national media. On Oct. 1 Commuter Dude, John Gerard from 11Alive news was on campus to take part in The Great Hang-Up: Don’t Text and Drive. He showed two powerful videos. One demonstrated how using a cell phone and driving impairs one’s ability to make quick decisions when road hazards are presented. The next told the story of a high school girl who died in a car crash. Text messages recovered later revealed that she was texting up to the moment of the accident. After the presentation students lined up to sign pledges saying they would not use their phones while driving anymore. Jamie Peach signed the pledge was one of them. Peach said that one of his friends died because of an accident related to cell phone use and driving and that he himself has nearly crashed. “(I’m) just trying to stop be-

cause I’ve almost gotten into a few wrecks because of it.” The problem is not just texting while driving but talking and all the other things people can do on their phones. Today cell phones are basically small computers that make it easy to access anything in a second. There are now laws in Georgia that restrict the use of cell phones while driving. House Bill 23 prevents drivers in Georgia under 18 with Class D licenses from driving a car while talking on a cell phone, texting or anything other than driving. A second Georgia law, SB 360, puts the same restriction on texting while driving on drivers over the age of 18 with Class C licenses. That law only deals with writing, sending or reading a text-based communication on a phone (i.e. text message, instant message or email). If caught, the fine is $150 and a point on your license. The law is a step in the right direction but has a long way to go in order to be as affective as law makers would like it to be. Student Linzy Kennedy said that she texts while driving, but

Frida Bushra said she doesn’t agree with the new no texting and driving law. admits it’s hazardous. “(It’s) a very dangerous thing to do. I do text and drive but I do agree with the law.” Students may agree wtih the law, but find it difficult to break the habit. Katherine Copeland was wearing a cast at the Great Hang-Up event. Gerard asked

her to share her story with the other students. Copeland was run off 985 when a woman drove into her lane. The woman was talking on a cell phone. “She came into my lane and she pushed me off the road at 70 miles an hour into the barrier,” Copeland said from the

student center stage. “I spun around and sling-shotted back across the interstate and landed. But she was on her phone and she couldn’t see me and she just came over.” Peach said he was affected by the videos shown at the event. “I don’t want to almost get into a wreck again. It scares me.”

The king is coming to Miami

Mark it down right now, the Miami Heat will win the ’10-’11 NBA Title. No athlete has taken more heat, no pun intended, over the past few months than LeBron James. I’ll be the first to admit that I am a huge fan of James, but I am also fair in my writing and can put my personal feelings aside. That being said…. To me there is no better athlete in the world than LeBron when you talk about his combination of size, strength and athleticism. Almost everyone considers Michael Jordan to be the greatest basketball player who ever lived. I myself am in the minority. I think Magic Johnson and Oscar Robertson are the best players to ever lace up their sneakers. Like both Magic and Robertson, James is blessed with the size of a power forward, but also the unique skill set of a point guard. Surely most of you know who Magic Johnson is, but I doubt you know who Oscar Robertson is. Robertson is the only player in league history to average a

triple double for an entire season. If you are unsure what that means, it’s when someone averages 10+ in three categories, i.e. points, assists and rebounds. A fact that gets overlooked far too much. He is the most underrated player in league history. LeBron just might become the second player to average a

MIKE WILLIAMS Sports Columnist

triple double this season. Last season he averaged 29.7 points, 7.3 rebounds and 8.6 assists, doing so without any other player near the caliber of Olympic teammates Wade and Bosh who he joins in Miami this year.

What continues to amaze me is how unselfish James is as a superstar. What amazes me more is he continuously gets killed for it by the media. James could average forty points in a season if he really wanted to, but rather than constantly go 1 on 5 he chooses to pass the ball to the open man, the right decision is to pass to an open NBA player making millions of dollars. Yet when that player misses the shot, it is LeBron who is criticized. They say he doesn’t have the killer instinct. Just go check the tape from game five of the 2007 Eastern Conference Finals against the Detroit Pistons. James scored 29 of the Cavs final 30 points, including the last 25 of the game, on the road, in a 109-107 double overtime victory. It’s arguably the greatest playoff performance ever, right up there with Magic Johnson’s game when he started at center for the Lakers against the Sixers in the finals and scored forty in the series clincher and the famous Michael Jordan flu game in the finals against the Jazz. So don’t tell me LeBron doesn’t have that killer instinct.

Special

The Heat will ultimately sweep the Oklahoma City Thunder in the NBA Finals, going undefeated in the playoffs after being 74-8 in the regular season. The problem is he has such a high basketball IQ that he looks at situations and figures the best percentage play and makes his decision whether to pass or shoot based on that. That’s what you should want in a player in a team sport. Someone who always puts the team first and foremost. I have never heard a guy get destroyed for wanting to win so badly that he puts team above self. So watch out this year, I believe you will WITNESS the greatest statistical season in NBA history, and yes, pun intended this time for those of

you who know the campaign NIKE launched when LeBron first came into the league saying we were all Witnesses. I also believe the Heat, with the addition of James and Bosh to go with Wade and the other complimentary pieces will be the greatest team in NBA history and break the Bulls record of 72 regular season wins. The Heat will ultimately sweep the Oklahoma City Thunder in the NBA Finals, going undefeated in the playoffs after being 74-8 in the regular season. You heard it here first.

Cox’s brilliant career comes to an end Nick Williams Auxillary Staff 924199696@gsc.edu

It almost felt like the days of old as I headed to the Ted for Bobby’s last regular season series. It didn’t really hit me until I passed a car with Braves window flags flying high. The game began with a standing ovation for the skipper himself, but the crowd was soon silenced as the braves fell behind early. Phillies 11, Braves 5, it was a gut wrenching loss. Couple that with a San Diego win, it put the Braves a mere one game up in the Wild Card. Saturday had a different feeling to it. We had to win today, after all it was Bobby Cox day. It was almost unreal in the stadium. Everywhere I looked there were Braves greats standing around. Javy Lopez, John Smoltz, Greg Maddux and page layout Branden Lefty and Mike Williams

Hank Aaron just to name a few. Tears filled my eyes as Bobby himself took the stage to thank the fans, and the outpouring of love from the fans was unlike anything I have ever witnessed. It truly felt like another world when the Braves took the field. Unfortunately the Phillies would ultimately win seven to nothing. We were now tied in the Wild Card race. How could this happen? How could we loose on Bobby Cox day? The possibilities left open Friday night were now limited to one day. Sunday could have been Bobby Cox’s last game, but the Braves were not about to l0et that happen. The Braves erupted with four runs in the fourth thanks to Tim Hudson’s RBI single and Omar Infante’s two-run triple. Derek Lee led off the fifth with a line drive home run and the Braves soon found themselves up eight to two. Tim Hudson pitched seven solid in-

nings allowing four runs on two hits. Jonny Venters got two quick outs in the eighth, but after two batters reached base, Cox turned to veteran closer Billy Wagner. There was a slight sense that the game was over with one of the best closers in baseball backing you up, what could go wrong? An error by Infante would prove otherwise, and a fly ball over Nate McLouth would bring the Phillies to within one. Fortunately Wagner got out of the eighth without anymore trouble. The top of the ninth started and everyone was on their feet. All 52,613 fans were cheering to see Wagner close it out. He wouldn’t disappoint. He struck out the side earning Cox his final regular season win. Cameras were locked on Bobby as he shook hands with players and umpires and the crowd began to chant, “Bobby Bobby!” It was the most amazing thing I have ever seen.

And then we waited around in the stadium to watch the Padres and Giants on the jumbo tron. Right around 8 p.m., a relatively small crowd watched as Brian Wilson struck out the final Padre batter that sent the Braves to the playoffs. For such a small crowd, we sure made a lot of noise. Shortly after, the players stampeded out of the dugout and hoisted Bobby to their shoulders. The Bobby chant started once again as the champagne soaked team headed back to the dugout. Eight days later Cox’s brilliant career came to an end when the Giants beat the Braves 3-2. The Giants haulted their celebration to honor Cox’s career with a standing ovation. Former third base coach and new manger Fredi Gonzalez has some big shoes to fill. Mike Williams and Jennifer Booth contributed to this column.

creating halloween

Each year I try to outdo the pre vious year’s costume. This year I’m channeling Dio de los Muertos, a traditional Mexican holiday of celebrating the dead. Heavy use of skulls, flowers, spider webs and vibrant colors are used in this holiday. Merging the two holidays, I came up with this.

WHAT YOU NEED White face paint Translucent powder Red face paint

Green face paint Black liquid eyeliner

Student Scott Damron’s traditional way of celebrating Halloween has been “dressing up half-wittedly and exploiting rich neighborhoods for candy.” Thi halloween, he’s practicing as a zombie for a zombie film with GSC’s Film Club).

WHAT YOU NEED White, burgandy, deep red, and purple face paint Translucent powder

Black and brown eyeshadow Fake blood

GSC student Raeanne Pagliarulo is a big fan of Halloween. This year, she’s been invited to a Halloween masquerade ball and instead of buying a mask, Raeannne is looking to create one using make-up. See how it turned out, and learn to do it too.

Page 16, Oct. 21, 2010

Everyone’s favorite excuse to play pretend is back. Halloween, one of the biggest consumer holidays, begs you to spend ridiculous amounts of money on costumes and candy. In spite of the cost, some people just really love to go all out. I would be one of those people. In conjunction with my love of the spooky holiday, is my love for makeup. Instead of buying a completely prepackaged costume, using your face and make up is a creative, budget friendly way to go.

Cover your face and lips with white face paint. Hollow out your eye by creating a circle with black face paint. Make a scalloped detail around the eye using red and green face paint, and black liq uid eyeliner. Make your face skeletal by hallowing out your face. Use black face paint to create a spade shape on your nose. Draw a flower on your forehead with red and black face paint. Make a web on your chin with the eyeliner. Draw teeth on your lips with black face paint. Leave the other half of your face normal. Cover the entire face, even lips, with the white Face Paint. Set it with translucent powder. Create bruising around the entire eye using the burgundy and deep red (can mix black and red) face paint. Dust over the bruising with a mixture of brown and black eyeshadow. Create a hallowed, sickly face by applying black eyeshadow on the contours of the face. Fill in your eyebrows messily with black eyeshadow/eyeliner). Apply fake blood anywhere you see fit to create a decay ing, brain hungry zombie. Trace the pattern you want for your mask out with the black eyeliner. Get creative and be as elaborate as you want. Fill in the outer edge of the mask with the black face paint. Fill in the remainder of the mask with the red face paint. To set the black face paint, dust some of the black eye shadow over it. To set the red face paint dust gold eye shadow over it. This will also create a metallic finish.
