Sports H AYLEY MUSASHI Associate Sports Editor @HayleyElyse After sophomore outside hitter Sinisa Zarkovic took the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation by storm last year, Rainbow Warrior volleyball head coach Charlie Wade focused his recruiting efforts on the Zarkovic family again hiring Sinisa’s father, Milan, in December. Milan Zarkovic joins Hawai‘i’s program with extensive knowledge, boasting a decade of national coaching experience, most recently as the head coach of the Belarus Senior National Team during the 2011 and 2012 seasons.

C O M I N G T O H AWA Iʻ I Though he was sought after by various international squads, the choice to follow his son to the islands was clear. “One of the first stories Sinisa told me about Hawai‘i was of how friendly and welcoming the people

are,” Milan Zarkovic said. “I became friends with Charles (Wade) a couple years ago, and we share a similar volleyball philosophy. So that made for a nice reason to come out here for a season and see how it goes.”

the court. I am just another player,” Sinisa Zarkovic said. “I have to live up to the expectation. Everyone is equal, and I don’t believe that I should have any extra privileges because my father is now a coach.”

While Sinisa is Milan’s only son, the other players on the roster are quick to recognize the fatherly role the newly minted assistant coach has taken on. “He’s the father figure that we have in and out of the practice gym, in and out of the locker room. … It just shows that he cares more about us than we ever thought,” senior outside hitter Jace Olsen said. “You come in every day, and you want to play for that guy.” Having been coached by Milan back in Serbia, Sinisa is aware of the pressures and expectations that come along with his father’s title. “I feel as though I need to be held at a higher standard, but my father doesn’t treat me like his son on

Prior to serving as head coach of the Belarus Senior National Team, Milan also coached the Serbian Junior National Team from 2001-2013, guiding the squad to a bronze medal at the World Junior Championships in 2011. Zarkovic has coached professionally for more than 20 years at nine different clubs, but perhaps more impressive is the fact that at each club, Zarkovic has won a championship. “There aren’t many big differences between the professional and amateur sides,” Milan Zarkovic said. “They both want to progress and get to a higher level. The only difference is that it is difficult because these boys are studying to fulfill their academic duties and trying to fulfill their sports duties. For them it is hard

The Rainbow Warriors are 3-2 this season after beginning last year’s season 1-4 without Milan Zarkovic (green).

because although the training is serious, ious, the academics are even more serious erious and more important.” i t t”

B OYS T O M E N Though Milan joins the coaching staff in the hopes of improving on last season’s success, he is also quick to recognize his opportunity to educate his team n areas off the court. in “While volleyball is important, heirr studies should be their priority,” their Mila an Zarkovic said. “We are trying Milan o not no ot only give them a sports eduto catio on, but we are trying to develop cation, hese boys into men who will lead these heirr families, and if they want, their their porrt and countries.” sport

News New IT center to improve UHM data protection, offer new services FADI YOUKHANA Associate News Editor

DAVID JORDAN / KA LEO O HAWAI‘I

The IT center is located next to Bilger and Keller Halls.

Ten years ago, the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa’s Information and Communication Services and main data center were in danger of damage from the Mānoa flood. After the dedication of the new IT center on Dec. 16, the university’s critical information and communication resources are now protected within an energyefficient, state of the art building, which will open next Friday. “This IT center is a vital investment in the current stability and technological future of the university and the state of Hawai‘i,” Interim President David Lassner said in a statement. The 74,000 square foot, six-story building includes a section that is especially dedicated to a disaster-protected data center. The 8,000 square foot data center will include full battery and generator backup power. “I think it’s great. I was walking by the new IT building with a friend and noticed how nice it was,” junior business major Jaron Vergara said. “It looks futuristic, and I think that it, along with other developments on campus, give our campus a higher standard. However, I do wish (the construction) wouldn’t take so long.” The IT center project was completed within its proposed budget of $41.7 million. Some of the partners include Ferraro Choi and Associates as project architect, dck pacific construction as general contractor and Bowers + Kubota Consulting as construction manager as well as a mix of State of Hawai‘i general obligation bonds and UH revenue bonds. “The IT center will be open Friday, Jan. 31,” Steven Smith, UH Interim Vice President and Chief Information Officer said. “Services

will be available on that date, though some services will be offered in the future when new equipment such as the High Performance Computing Cluster becomes available.” The IT center’s energy effi cient features are expected to build on UH’s sustainability initiatives. The center is expected to receive the LEED Silver certification. According to Smith, no official confirmation has been received, but the certification is expected to be announced soon as the fi nal paperwork is being processed. One of the features of the new data center is its ability to provide new colocation services and hosting of virtual servers for UH programs. The consolidation of servers will help free up space and reduce energy cost as well as enhance security protection. Prior to having a central location, the UH Information Technology Services staff was spread across campus. Now, the new IT center will allow the staff to work together for the fi rst time since ITS was created in 1994. The relocation of the ITS workers will increase collaboration efforts as well as freeing up space for other uses. According to Smith, the ITS staff is expected to move in during the week of Jan. 27. UH community members will enjoy the advanced teleconferencing and collaboration features to work with peers around the world. Those features will include highdefi nition and ultra-high-defi nition (4K) video capability to support scientific and educational visualizations and insights. “I think that it’s good to see improvements being made to our campus,” junior engineering major Corynne Umeda said. “I hope I get to have a class in there before I graduate.”

Enter the world of Chinese puppetry

Tickets are available online at brownpapertickets.com/event/553155. BR AD DELL Features Editor

Chinese New Year is around the corner and with it comes an intriguing exhibit on traditional Chinese puppetry at the East-West Center. Guest curator Robin Ruizendaal, Ph.D., of the Lin Liu-Hsin Museum, brings with him a piece of Chinese and Taiwanese culture, referring to traditional puppetry as “a window to Chinese society; to its religion, economy and politics.” The Taiyuan Puppet Theatre Company is coming from Taipei, Taiwan, to bring the puppets to life in a performance of “A Sea of Puppets.” Presented in more than 30 countries, the show gives audience members a feel for how puppetry was once traditionally performed.

ʻA WO R L D O F C H I N E S E P U P P E T S ʼ The East-West Center Gallery will be hosting “A World of Chinese Puppets from the Lin Liu-Hsin Museum, Taiwan,” a comprehensive Chinese and Taiwanese puppet theater exhibit. “(The exhibit) has around 150 (puppets), so it’s the biggest exhibition of Chinese puppet theater ever shown in the U.S.,” Ruizendaal said. “All the puppets are antiques and really old. Only the puppets in the performance are new.” The exhibition features four types of puppets: glove, rod, shadow and string puppets. The displays also include musical instruments, examples of stages and scripts, photos and videos. “A World of Chinese Puppets” will be on display from Jan. 25 to May 11 at the East-West Center Gallery, and admission is free. There will also be a free opening re-

ception on Jan. 26 from 1-3:30 p.m. featuring walkthroughs with Ruizendaal.

so even if you don’t speak Chinese, you’ll understand the show.”

ʻA L L WA L K S O F L I F E ʼ

The Taiyuan Puppet Theatre Company will be accompanying the exhibit to give three performances of the silent play “A Sea of Puppets.” The Taiyuan Company uses modern theater techniques to remember and present the tradition of puppet theater. The performance will use glove puppets, live music and fi ve puppeteers. “It’s a romantic comedy,” Ruizendaal said. “Boy meets girl, and a bad guy, with a happy ending. The show shows all aspects of traditional puppet theater, so you’ll see clowns, a beautiful lady, martial arts fights, acrobatics. It’s a show for everybody, for all ages. It has no words,

The exhibit and performance are not just for those who already have a passion for Chinese culture or theater. “People interested in arts, culture and anthropology, all walks of life, will be able to take away something,” Ruizendaal said.

‘A Sea of Puppets’ When: Jan. 25, 2 and 4 p.m; Jan. 26, 4 p.m. Where: Imin Center-Jefferson Hall Tickets: General admission, $10; seniors, military and students, $5

At risk: the open and free Internet DOOR AE SHIN Opinions Editor

After the Federal Communication Commission released a document for “Preserving the Free and Open Internet,” Verizon sued the Commission – and won. According to the original FCC report, it is “clear that the Internet has thrived because of its freedom and openness. Consumers and innovators do not have to seek permission before they use the Internet to launch new technologies, start businesses, connect with friends or share their views. The Internet is a level playing field. Consumers are free to decide what content they want to access, create or share with others.” At the beginning of last week, a U.S. appeals court struck down the FCC’s policies, which required giving access equally to Internet service providers. Net neutrality and a free Internet are under threat, and we must not take them for granted any longer. This fundamental aspect of our society seems to be under attack by major media com-

panies. The BBC reports that “supporters of net neutrality see regulation as a necessary check on Internet providers, which in the interest of maximising profits could give preference to big business over smaller, independent web enterprises and start-up companies.”

W H AT WO U L D H A P P E N T O N E T F L I X? The Huffington Post reported Wednesday that Netfl ix recently released publicly their support for net neutrality, as without it people can easily be forced to pay tolls based on which sites are looked at and how often the Internet is used. Netfl ix referred to the potential loss of an open Internet as “draconian,” and in its official statement, said that “in principle, a domestic ISP can legally impede the video streams that members request from Netlix, degrading the experience … The motivation could be to get Netfl ix to pay fees to stop this degradation.” The BBC article on the recent court decision provides a scenario of Internet providers

slowing down or halting pages and applications of their choice and making others of their choosing go faster. Currently, companies that run the Internet now have the ability to do so without regulation. Because of threats to net neutrality, the FCC adopted this policy in 2010. The Huffington Post reports that the Tea Party came out in 2011 strongly opposing net neutrality in fear of tightened regulations and it being a threat to individual freedom.

F E A R O F R E G U L AT I O N Many of the proponents against net neutrality cite danger of overregulation as a reason to oppose the FCC’s order. However, the FCC document is simply a precautionary move to preserve the foundations of the freedom to surf the Internet without interruption and without tampering of speed and accessibility. As Netfl ix’s official statement affi rms, “In the long-term, we think Netfl ix and consumers are best served by strong network neutrality across all networks, in-

cluding wireless. To the degree that ISPs adhere to a meaningful voluntary code of conduct, less regulation is warranted. To the degree that some aggressive ISPs start impeding specific data fl ows, more regulation would clearly be needed.” As the Bloomberg Businessweek reports, the lack of net neutrality and a free, open Internet allows large companies like AT&T and Verizon to take control over the equal access and visibility of various websites and online programs. This leads to ease in warding off smaller competition and paving the way for a handful of large conglomerate corporations to slow down access for everyone else. We can no longer allow ourselves to be tossed around and tested as corporations tighten their hold on our media and the open Internet for the sake of control and profit. As we face increasing threats to much of the freedoms we took for granted, it is time to track the decisions that are being made for us and stand up for the rights we are granted as the people of this nation and world.
