Hakim, ’14, the SGA Co-Presidents, who promised to do away with the outdated structure of the General Assembly last spring. “We think that it is extremely important to change the General Assembly into the type of atmosphere that promotes dialogue between student org anizations in a way that truly addresses the interests and needs of each g roup,� said the two SGA co-presidents.

Earlier this week, major moves were made in the Student Government Association (SGA) when it was announced that the General Assembly would be replaced by the Student Union (SU), following an 80-2 vote at this past Monday’s session. The General Assembly was one of the SGA’s legislative bodies, the other being the Senate, and was composed of all Recognized Student Organizations (RSOs), Club Sports, Class Councils, Residence Hall Councils, and the Inter-House Council. The Student Union will be a revamped legislative body, better suited to serve the Holy Cross community, and especially the Courtesy of Brandon Gomez RSOs.

Celtic Culture Comes to Holy Cross Elizabeth O’Brien Co-News Editor On Wednesday September 18, students and faculty gathered in Dinand Library to listen to Kate Chadbourne, a renowned and accomplished storyteller, perform. She is also a poet, singer, and teacher, just to name a few of her skills. Chadbourne has a Ph.D. in Celtic Languages and Literatures from Harvard University. www.thecrusader.com

Chadbourne opened up her performance with an Irish song where she encouraged the audience to sing the chorus with her. While playing the harp, her melodious voice created a calming aura in the room, setting the pace for the rest of the performance. Chadbourne’s career has been inspired by traditional Irish music, but she adds her own unique sounds using voice, SLDQR ,ULVK à XWH ZKLVWOH DQG the harp.

Updates from SGA Expansion of Hydration Stations

Emily Sullivan Director of Environmental Concerns What motivated me: “Since the installation of the hydration station in the Loyola Gym, a lot of students expressed interest in having more hydration stations on campus‌ I completely agreed with the student body because the stations promote using reusable bottles and also decrease the amount of bottled water people buy.â€? How long it took and who was involved: ´$WWKHHQGRI WKHĂ€UVWVHPHVWHURI ODVW year, I wrote a capital project proposal to Father Boroughs, requesting funding to install hydration stations across campus‌I worked very closely with John Cannon, the Associate Director for Planning & Operations, on where the best locations would be for the stations‌ I also got unanimous support and endorsement from the Presidential Task Force on the Environment, last year’s Executive Cabinet, and Eco-Ac-

tion‌ John then submitted the proposal to Father Boroughs‌ We heard back in March that the proposal had been passed and that all the hydration stations would be installed over the summer‌â€? Where the funding came from: “The funding came from the SGA and Physical Plant‌ having the SGA partner and help pay for the installations really showed the Administration how much the student body wanted the hydration stations, strengthening the proposal‌ Physical Plant paid for a majority of the project.â€? How I hope to expand the project: “I’d love to see more water fountains converted into hydration stations!â€? What else I am doing: “Over the summer, I collaborated with various administrative and student organizations to write a sustainability guide for Holy Cross, called The Purple Goes Green Guide‌â€?

They were “On the Roadâ€? with a program of the same title that was initiated by the College last fall. “On the Roadâ€? showcases different facets of Holy Cross, whether it is academics, athletics, the arts, etc., uniting alumnae, parents, as well as current and prospective students in dialogue about what is happening on Mt.

Attendees were able to experience art from the Hill in three forms. First, artwork from the Millard Art Center was projected and displayed. Then cast members of the Holy Cross Theater Department’s production of Shackled Spirits performed an excerpt for audience members. A panel discussion followed, moderated by Professor Steve Vineberg and including such esteemed alum as director Bart

The evening concluded with a reception where all who performed and attended could converse about the arts, as they already exist here at Holy Cross and as they continue to evolve. This dialogue was the crown of the event, in addition of course to all of the performances. It allowed members of the HC community to discuss ZK\WKHDUWVDUHVRVLJQLĂ€FDQWWRWKH&ROOHJHDQGWR the education it offers. This is something Shannon LoCascio, ‘14 a member of the ensemble of Shackled Spirits, thinks we forget all too easily.

Witnessing the shared love of the arts by all of these seemingly separated members of the greater Holy Cross community was, as LoCascio puts it, “super cool.â€?

Each of her stories wove humor, morality, fantasy, and love together to help the audience understand traditional Irish culture. She conveyed her stories through her energetic and positive personality that never seemed to falter. Her passion for storytelling originated from her study of Irish folklore in Ireland and Wales. “There is a certain multiplicity in storytelling culture,� said Chadbourne. “There are so many variations of songs and stories because each person infuses a new spirit into them.� Many audience members felt that Chadbourne’s visit was distinct from the other guests that the English department has invited to the College.

Apple’s Bid for Dominance Chris Roy Staff Writer In the late summer of 2012, Apple stock reached a peak that many thought was not possible. The all-time-high price was a long way from the humble beginnings of the company in founder Steve Jobs’s garage. In the current day, Apple is in a much different position. The death of Steve Jobs, at the hands of cancer, was met with falling stock prices and a criticized business model; the silver lining of the silver apple seemed to be disintegrating. However, this week, things have seemed to turn back to Apples faYRU :LWK WKH ODXQFK RI  D QHZ à DJ ship phone, the iPhone 5S, and the new, more affordable (and colorful!) iPhone 5C, things seemed to be looking up. With the improved tech of the 5S and the cost-affordable nature of the 5C, Apple seemed to be reclaiming its grip, or better yet, stranglehold, of the phone market. The biggest release coming out of Apple last week, however, was the arrival of its new operating system, iOS7. While many criticize this new OS as too

closely modeled after Android, those who know Apple will realize this as a throw back/homage to the company’s colorful roots. Before there was the silver Apple, there was the colorfully hued Macintosh. The warm yet simple colors of the new homepage make a user feel more at ease while giving the phones home page a more welcoming look. In addition to the looks, the phones new shortcuts and management systems for music, social media, and photos give it a clear advantage over iOS6. To top it off, Apples always intuitive interface has become even easier to navigate, making those who have never even held an iPhone feel like they were holding their own phone. This past week, Apple has stepped up and shown why it is, without a doubt, the most competitive smart-phone company

iOS7: Awful or Awesome? Victoria Fritz Opinions Co-Editor As a rule, I wait until the last possible minute to download new iOS updates. Seriously, I don’t even care that everyone already has the new one, I will not get it until I have a 3 hour block of time when I won’t need my phone or won’t be too damaged when the update erases everything I had and I need to get it back. Last time I updated the Apple fairy erased EVERYTHING and gave me a miniature panic attack. So, yes, I am writing an opinion article on iOS7 without really having it. But before you criticize me about writing on something I know nothing about, let me point out that it is literally impossible to know nothing about iOS7 at this point unless you live in a dark hole in the middle of nowhere. For instance, I know people are complaining about how “ugly� it is. Everything I have seen of it isn’t really ugly, just much more colorful than it was before. I’m not entirely sure I would accuse something more color-

ful of being ugly, but then again what do I know. Also, I’m loving this control center concept.

In addition, I hear that there are cool new picture features, like a view pre-cropped for Instagram. Yay social media! So, basically, I really don’t get why people are so worked up.

To give an example, this past summer, I was stopped by the Worcester Police right beside the gate on the back side of the football stadium for no legitimate reason. I was going to get some groceries and the police stopped me. In fact, our relationship as a community has been strained with the people of Worcester. I think that instead of facing the problems that we have with Worcester community, we have failed understand the people of Worcester. We all observed how this past summer that our neighbors in front of Gate 7 called bomb squads on us for garbage bags. This shows that our neighbors have no trust in us. As a community, we can do better and we could re-think some the ways we do things here on Mount Saint James. I

know we have banners hanging around the oval in front of the Hogan Campus Center giving testaments to the international community that Holy Cross has. However, if we do not reconsider some of the ways that we do things here on Mount Saint James, I fear that many international students would leave Holy Cross with a sad heart. It is also important that we stay true to our sayings and our testimonial banners. We cannot have banners hanging around saying that we have an intentional community here at Mount Saint James for others to see when our student body is so divided that the international students here at Holy Cross do not know who is an intentional student and who is not an international student. This fact shows that Holy Cross does not do a good job of introducing international students to RQHDQRWKHULQWKHĂ€UVWSODFH, know we do have the Odyssey Program, but that program is very broad. It is for international students and minority students altogether. We also do not organize a diversity day or such an event in which the cultural IRRGV DQG WKH Ă DJV RI  GLIIHUent countries and their ways of living can be represented to the greater Holy Cross community.    , Ă€UPO\ EHOLHYH WKDW +RO\ Cross cannot educate “men and women for othersâ€? without exposing them to the greater world that surrounds them. I know we do send more students

to study abroad, but we do so only for a year. Whereas by having international students here at Mount Saint James, as part of our community, they would become part of our memories forever. They would be our assets as well to use when we visit their countries. I am sure they would all welcome you with a warm heart into their homes. We also know that modern technology has made our world smaller, one that is more connected. Today, many corners of the world are connected through the many technologies that we use. International issues affect Americans as much as they do people in other parts of the world today. Even though our world is more connected, we also know that the American news media has failed to represent a positive image of our cultures, religions and ways of living. By changing this perception, we would come to develop a tolerance towards one another. Developing tolerance towards one another is in fact one of the themes that, as a community, we have for others to see on the banners in front of the Hogan Center. I hope we can do better in the coming future than only representing three international countries. And I believe that we all have the ability to do better. We just have to truly open our hearts and minds to others and accept them for who they are.

Speaking of Student Affairs It is Your Brain! It Matters Darlene Menz APN, BC Adult Nurse Practitioner Health Services Fall season begins with many sports and enthusiasm for outside activities. It is time to refresh your knowledge of what a concussion is and how to take care of yourself if you experience one. A concussion is an injury to the brain that can be caused by many things: sports, head to head contact, collisions with an object, a fall to the ground or an accident: biking, skateboarding, or motor vehicle. A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury that is a result from a bump, a blow, or a jolt to the head or body that causes the brain to move quickly in the head in a swirling or back and forth motion. You do not have to lose consciousness to have a

concussion. This injury causes the nerve cells in the brain to be damaged. Damaged nerve cells cause the brain to function abnormally and result in many symptoms. Symptoms of a concussion vary for each individual and may appear right away or may appear a few days after the injury. People with concussions have trouble with thinking, concentration, and remembering, physical changes, emotional symptoms, and changes in their sleep patterns. They can feel slowed down, tired, foggy, or confused, and experience headaches, nausea, dizziness, or feel off balanced, experience blurred or double vision, and have sensitivity to light, noise, or crowded environments. In addition, one can feel more emotional, irritable, sad, or anxious and their sleep patterns

can be affected. If you have concerns about a possible concussion, you need to be evaluated by a health care provider as soon as possible: Health Services at Holy Cross can evaluate you. If anyone is having severe or worsening symptoms from a concussion, they need to seek care immediately in an Emergency Room. Taking care of your brain by resting is the most important thing for you to do right away. When your brain cells are injured, your brain and body need to rest in order to heal the damaged brain cells. This is called COGNITIVE REST and PHYSICAL REST. Cognitive rest means you need to avoid activities that stimulate your brain: work, school, studying, stress, computer time, and texting. Physical rest is just as important. This means relax-

ing, taking naps, avoiding stress, and getting plenty of sleep. It is recommended that you are completely symptom free before gradually stimulate your brain to be sure your symptoms do not return. Once you are back to your full cognitive activities with no symptoms, then a gradual approach to physical activity are introduced. Everyone’s concussion is unique and each person’s brain heals differently. If you ignore taking care of your concussion, the result may be that your will have symptoms that last longer and your brain will take longer to heal which will slow your recovery. It is very important to keep your brain safe while you are healing from a concussion. You need to avoid situations or activities that may place you at risk for another head in-

jury while you are recovering. Avoid: Alcohol, skateboard, rollerblades, trampoline, sports, exercise, biking, driving. If the brain is injured again while it is still healing then you may prolong symptoms and recovery and could suffer a rare, but fatal consequence called Second Impact Syndrome. Concussion is an injury that requires time to heal and requires a tremendous amount of energy for your body to repair the damaged nerve cells in your brain. REST right away and take a gradual approach to resuming your academics, work, and activities with the guidance of a Health Care Provider. Take care of your brain, it is the only one you have!

Words from Young Alumni El mito del â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;mundo realâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Dan Clavin Class of 2012 One thing I learned during my four years of college was that people really enjoy talking about this elusive concept they call the â&#x20AC;&#x153;real world.â&#x20AC;? Whether it was a professor or Career Services Counselor doing her duty, or just some peppy student eager to burst out into post-grad life and show the world his stuff, I was always much more content curled up in my oversized bed at 38 Caro. After all, my friends were Econ and Math majorsâ&#x20AC;&#x201C; they all seemed so practical!

The life of a Spanish major at Holy Cross was alZD\VIXQLQWHUHVWLQJDQGFKDOOHQJLQJ,QRQHVSHFLĂ&#x20AC;F literature course senior year, the seven of us in the class had to assume a new, Spanish identity from the Middle Ages. We had to sign all our papers with this new name, and we even had to address each other as our new personas. Sometimes even I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sure if I was Dan Clavin the student or Armando de Clavijo the soldier. Yeah, that really happened. During senior year of college, the Armando/ Dan rift only reinforced the question: who am I in the real world?

Football Team Struggles On and Off the Field Shane Garner Game-ologist After a disappointing three ZLQVLQWKHSDVWĂ&#x20AC;IWHHQJDPHV&ROlege of the Holy Cross football players are becoming concerned that women on campus are no longer Ă&#x20AC;QGLQJWKHPDWWUDFWLYH In a recent poll amongst female students, 70% said they now see football players more as potential friends than potential lovers. Charlotte Bevington, a senior interviewed in the survey, said she thought members of the football team were nice, but had about as much sex appeal as â&#x20AC;&#x153;a brother, or a lamp.â&#x20AC;? This same theme continued as, walking through Kimball, this reporter overheard a group of sophomore girls discussing their recent weekend escapades. One girl, who confessed she had hooked up with a football player over the weekend, was ridiculed and laughed at by her other girlfriends. The girl claimed it was â&#x20AC;&#x153;an accidentâ&#x20AC;? and thought the person was â&#x20AC;&#x153;on the swimming and diving team, not the football team.â&#x20AC;?

In light of these statistics and female confessions, many football players are now getting concerned that they may have to rely on their personalities to attract members of the opposite sex. This has led the senior leadership group of the team to call for extra training sessions and a zero-tolerance on alcohol in hope they may start winning again. A sophomore running back on the team, who would like to remain anonymous, stated now that his pick-up-line, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m on the football team,â&#x20AC;? doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work, he struggles in interactions with women. He went on to say how he understands what it must feel like â&#x20AC;&#x153;to be a member of the menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s soccer team.â&#x20AC;?
