Chancellor Hinshaw outlines three efforts to bolster UH Mānoa PAIGE L. JINBO Staff Reporter The University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa is steadily recovering from its budget crisis and is moving forward with plans to dramatically enhance the UHM experience, according to Chancellor Virginia Hinshaw. Hinshaw addressed the Mānoa Faculty Senate at its Congress meeting on Wednesday. “This time last year, we were caught in the throes of the global recession, but on this occasion UH Mānoa is moving forward,” Hinshaw said. “The campus budget is balanced because everyone has been belt tightening.” However, while the budget picture is positive, work must continue to be done in order to remain in this realm. “We still need to fi nd different ways that we can become better educated in dealing with the budget cuts,” said Susan Hippensteele, Senate Executive Committee chairperson. “Also, understanding and identifying bench marks and how to meet them.” While the lack of spending on

the University’s part during the budget crisis helped minimize the deficit, the soaring increase of UHM students each semester also helped to stabilize the budget. Hinshaw attributed this to

UHM being one of the leading research universities and providing a high quality of education. “Many folks here at Mānoa, and that includes me, believe in our destiny is to be renowned for

Career fair lays the path for students seeking employment B Y JANE CALLAHAN Associate News Editor This past Wednesday, the Campus Center Ballroom was filled with students looking for jobs - and employers looking for students. Hosted twice a year, the career fair provides a chance for students and employers to connect in an increasingly competitive job market. Career Development and Student Employment (CDSE) hosted the event, which offers students year-round services that include résumé reviews, job skills workshops and career counseling.

Myrtle Ching-Rapp, the director of student employment, said that about 1,000 students came to the fair, which hosted 69 companies. “(The fair) defi nitely has an effect. All of these companies are hiring,” said Ching-Rapp. “Some companies come to campus two or three times to get a feel for the students, especially in technical fi elds.”

W H O ʼS W H O A wide range of companies were represented, from AT&T to Kona Irrigation Supply. Every company had representatives who were there to answer questions, accept résu-

més, and exchange contact information. Scott Arnett, a UHM alum who graduated last May, came to the fair with résumés in tow after researching some of the companies that were visiting campus. “My search has been vigorous,” said Arnett “I did some homework before I got here, and I’m looking at seven different companies.” Arnett said that he originally had two job offers after graduation, but both dissolved, leaving him still searching for work fi ve months later. Katheryn Hu, a freshman mechanical engineering major, was one of the attendees that

included students who were not yet looking for work. Hu’s uncle, himself an engineer, had advised her that jobs in mechanical engineering were becoming harder to find, while electrical and civil engineering jobs were growing. “I’m just checking everything out, and seeing what’s available” said Hu. Brad Baker, a senior in accounting, considered a company’s structure during his job search, in response to fears that the economy would not recover soon. “The FA A (Federal Aviation AdminisSee Career Fair, page 3

it came to renovating. The bids were lower than anticipated, making it possible to expand improvements beyond Frear Hall and the Hale Aloha towers to include the halls of Johnson. Although there have been numerous improvements and renovations around the campus — from renovating Hamilton Library and Hemenway Hall to repairing 37 leaking roofs — students and faculty can expect to see more. Other classrooms and auditoriums on campus will undergo makeovers that will include modernization. Areas surrounding Hamilton and Sinclair Library have also been targeted for improvement. “Providing a learning environment of high quality among faculty and students is clearly of importance of being a destination of choice,” Hinshaw said. The third and fi nal effort to enhance the UHM experience and draw students to this campus focuses on building for the future. Hinshaw explained that the University of Hawai‘i system is planning a $500 million campaign. Approximately $400 million will be allotted to UHM. This third endeavor is communicating to the public why UHM is a commendable institution worth attending. Since the beginning of the year, five different T V commercials about UHM have been airing. These videos — created by UHM students and faculty — highlight the value of UH, Hinshaw said. “Now, each and every one of us is a communicator about this university, and your ideas are truly needed to improve and increase the efforts we have, and ought to have in the future because it does contribute to our visibility,” she said.

tration) made the best impression because the job is secure. It’s a government job. The government doesn’t go out of business, it won’t go under.” Some students who were looking for temporary work also weighed a company’s chances for retaining its employees. Antonio Brennan, a senior psychology major set to graduate this spring, was at the career fair in search of a summer job. “I want a stable, corporate job. AT&T and Apple (looked most promising) because they’re growing,” said Brennan “I’ve heard things, like that there are no jobs out there. (These big companies) have more job openings.”

W H AT E M P L OY E R S WA N T

Don Vallejo, a sophomore and volunteer who greeted students at the doors of the career fair, has been to the fair as a job seeker three times. He says one of the benefits of attending the fair is that students can “get a better idea of what they are looking for.” Vallejo continued, “In high school, they tell you what you need to learn to get a job. Coming to the career fair, you learn more about what employers want.” Vallejo said his impression was that the most important skills a student should have when seeking employment are personal-relations skills and knowledge specific to the career in which they are interested. One company is looking to hire graduates to work starting in January 2011 for a graduate sales program, which “includes an extensive training and development program, giving the recent graduate everything they need to become a success.” “Generally the people that do really well have outgoing personalities, are go -getters … people that get things done and make things happen.

Despite student worries about entering an ailing economy, one recruiter said that his company feels that “the media sales and marketing world looks good.” Sena Pierce, the Peace Corps campus representative at UH Mānoa, provides an example of how employers look for different things depending on what the company does. Pierce said, “We are looking for individuals with motivation, commitment and a desire to help others. An applicant to Peace Corps is more competitive with a degree in education, health or agriculture or related work/volunteer experience.” Pierce said there are thousands of job openings with the Peace Corps for 2011. Many employers stated that they come to UHM because they have had good results with graduates they’ve hired in the past. “I am continually impressed with the students (here),” said Pierce “There are currently 13 UHM alumni serving in the Peace Corps.

517 UHM alumni have served in the Peace Corps since 1961.”

A WO R D O F A DV I C E In addition to answering questions, company representatives were happy to give advice to future graduates. One company said that those searching for work should research prospective employers, learn what they do, and what they are looking for. “Be prepared to tell them who you are. Remember you are selling yourself to the company, what return on investment are you offering?” Pierce said students should think about where they want to be years down the road when considering job options, and ask if what they are pursuing fits with their long-term goals. She added that a “no-no” for students is “to show up, but not ask questions.” Dressing in business attire is also a “must ” when applying for jobs. One representative quoted writer Dan Zevin:, “Never wear a backward baseball cap to an inter view unless applying for the job of umpire.”

Fighting the spill by serving up gumbo ing up sea turtles affected by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. When FSHN department head

C HRIS M IKESELL Senior Staff Writer

What does it take to fi ght the effects of the biggest oil spill in the history of the United States? Fifty pounds of shrimp, 40 pounds of chicken, 40 pounds of red beans and a small army of volunteer sous chefs. At today’s Gumbo for the Gulf fundraiser in the Agricultural Sciences building, chef instructor Mark Segobiano and his team will be selling $1 tasting plates to benefit the Institute for Marine Mammal Studies, located in Gulfport, Miss. The Food Science and Human Nutrition (FSHN) Department got the idea to do a fundraiser for the Deepwater Horizon cleanup efforts when Shawn Murakawa, one of the FSHN department’s graduate students, did some rescue work over the summer clean-

Dr. Doug Vincent asked Chef Segobiano if he wanted to head up the Gumbo for the Gulf project,

Segobiano jumped at the chance. He wanted to do something for a culinary region he fell in love with when he was in college. “In the fall of 1982, for one semester, I attended the University of Southern Mississippi at Hattysburg,” said Segobiano. New Orleans was only a three-hour drive from where many of his fraternity brothers lived, so he would make a “weekend jaunt” down to the French Quarter every chance he could get. “I fell in love with Cajun and Creole cooking, fell in love with the Gulf area,” he said. Along with Chef Segobiano, a number of students and community members have teamed up to put on today’s fundraiser. “Our student volunteers are members of the Food Science and Human Nutrition Council,” said Chef Segobiano. He’s gathered a team of about 30 people – fresh-

men, sophomores, juniors and seniors – most of them either former or current FSHN students. Their task last night: to cut, chop, or otherwise prep more than 340 pounds of ingredients in three hours for today’s fundraiser. All of their efforts are set to culminate around a tasting menu of six dishes, including chicken and andouille sausage gumbo, Cajun red beans and rice, baked cheese grits, cayenne Cajun carrots, shrimp étouffée and New Orleans-style bread pudding, along with sweet tea and lemonade. “We’d like to get at least 300 people,” said Segobiano. “If they all sample all six items, that would be $1,800 minus the cost of buying some of the food items. But we are getting some of the more expensive items donated.” Romi’s Shrimp Shack of Kahuku donated the shrimp, while Nalo Farms

donated fresh herbs. Other items were donated by Hansen Food Service. And while the concept of doing this type of fundraiser isn’t new, it’s something Chef Segobiano and his volunteer staff are doing because they want to give back to the community. “In and around the gulf area, there have been a lot of Gumbo for the Gulf fundraisers,” said Chef Segobiano. “We’re just trying to do our part here.”

Brandon Zulueta, a registered tutor in the LAC program, helps prepare a student for an upcoming midterm. K EANE TANIMOTO Contributing Writer Students who are struggling in school and unsatisfied with their grades may turn to the Learning Assistance Center (L AC) for help. The L AC is at the front desk of Sinclair Library and offers free tutoring for students. Appointments need to be scheduled on the LAC website 24 hours in advance, and even earlier during the high-traffic periods of fi nals and midterms week. Students may schedule a one-hour appointment per subject per week. Students who repeatedly fail to show up to their appointments without providing 24 -hour notice will have their tutoring privileges suspended until they meet with L AC director Rosie Woodruff. The L AC offers tutoring in a wide array of subjects, including Chemistry 151, Physics 170,

Natural Resources and Environmental Management 203, and 39 other classes. Tutors are qualified students, who received B’s or higher in the subject they tutor. The LAC already has a steady number of students who regularly go there for assistance with classes. “I like how you (study) in the cubicles,” said Connie Choy, a prebusiness major that has already visited the LAC three times. “I had the same tutor. (He) showed up on time and knew the content well.” If you cannot find time to schedule an appointment or you would like to learn how to manage your time better, the L AC offers study sessions and classes that teach time management skills. Last year, the L AC helped a total of 1,300 students. Some students, however, say that the LAC should be more visible to students and offer more assistance. “It is confusing to sign up on the website and you have to click

Back pain got you down? Try sitting up straight M ICHAEL BREWER Associate Opinions Editor

When I was young, I suffered from back pain. It’s not something you want to have, and painkillers aren’t always the best answer. The root of the problem often begins with improper posture, which is something we can control. My back pain came from sitting in a computer chair for six hours a day, slaving away on Final Fantasy XI, an online video game. Those days were glorious: very few responsibilities, enjoyment from the simplest things, friendship with anyone, and sleeping in until noon during summer. But oh, the mornings were achy. Waking up to a stiff lower back was difficult; getting out of bed was a chore. Walking became

strenuous; I had to consciously place each step to alleviate pain. Each time I bent over I could feel my spine grumbling. At times I felt more tired than I should have been, and there was distastefulness to certain things, like food and taking a deep breath. This back pain lasted a good year, or for however long I played the game religiously — long enough to say it was chronic. According to Medscape Today, an online journal, any back pain that lasts longer than 12 weeks is considered chronic. Only 2% of back pain sufferers experience this. My quality of life was affected so much that, upon reflection, I looked it up and found that there was a huge correlation between chronic back pain and depression. According to a study in a 1992 issue of The Journal

of the International Association for the Study of Pain, “major depression is thought to be four times greater in people with chronic back pain than in the general population.” Although I wouldn’t say my affliction caused major depression, it showed signs of what it meant to be affected by the pain: difficulty sleeping, irritability and fatigue during the day, slow movements, lethargy, spending time away from others and distractions caused by the pain. Other symptoms, as stated on Spine-health.com’s website, include social isolation, gastrointestinal distress, mental dullness, financial difficulties arising from the inability to work, and a meek sexual drive. A 13-year-old boy’s mind won’t

really register these things and conclude it was all just because I was slouching in my chair, so I casted away the ill thoughts and continued my gaming. Later, I grew out of the game and became more active. The difference in physical and mental health was astounding, even though I couldn’t trace the origin of my newfound well-being. Now, I’m not saying the lifestyle was the root of my woes. Many people get along well with desk jobs. Some people come out of it just fi ne. Some come out of it feeling terrible. Consider the way you seat yourself. Do your muscles feel fatigued? Do you feel stress on the ligaments in your spine? Does your spine ever feel like it’s fi xed in an abnormal position? These are

probably results of poor posture. It can be fi xed, but it takes time.

R E M E D I AT I O N The first thing to consider is that the spine is not straight. It has two curves, one where the base of your head meets your shoulders, and another from the upper back to the base of the spine. Don’t try and straighten what can’t be straightened. Second, properly align yourself by placing your ears loosely above your shoulders, above the hips. Evenly distribute body weight to the feet. If you’re standing, place more weight on the balls, rather than the heels, of the feet. While seated, place both feet comfortably on the ground and arms at a 75- to See Back pain, next page

The Warrior golf team will enter each tournament with a balanced roster. Comprised of three freshmen, three sophomores, three juniors and two seniors, the Warriors will use each other’s experiences to complement one another as they prepare for their 2011 season. “The benefit is that you have a wide spectrum of experience,” head coach Ronn Miyashiro said. “All of our players have played pretty extensively and our freshmen are getting their opportunities right now.”

K AUAʻ I C O L L E G I AT E I N V I TAT I O N A L Hawai‘i will host the third

Kaua‘i Collegiate Invitational at the Puakea Golf Course from Sunday to Tuesday. The Puakea Golf Course plays to a par 72, measuring 6,954 yards. The golfers will play 18 holes in a shotgun format that will start at 8 a.m. each day. “We’re just taking it one step at a time and moving in the right direction,” Miyashiro said. “Everybody who is on this roster has played that golf course before so that experience part is going to help us over pretty much everyone in the field.” A long with Hawai‘i, the tournament features British Columbia, Gonzaga, Hawai���i-Hilo, Hawai‘i Pacific, Northern Colorado, Osaka Gakuin, San Diego, Seattle and Texas San-A ntonio. San Diego is the defending team champion, running away with last year’s title, carding a 35 under par, 829. A lex Ching,

Punahou graduate and San Diego golfer, finished second in last year’s tournament. Hawai‘i finished in fourth place last year with a five over par, 869. Junior T.J. Kua was Hawai‘i’s leading golfer with a total of 209 after three days, good for seven under par. Kua, a native of Līhu‘e, is excited to return back to Kaua‘i. “It ’s good to be home again,” Kua said. “Just some added pressure but I have a lot of good friends and a lot of sup port. They understand what I went through and the pressure is very welcoming.”

Red Bull gearing up for big Saturday SEAN M ICHEL Senior Staff Reporter One needs waves for a surf contest. The Red Bull RIVALS contest, which pits O‘ahu’s best north and south shore surfers against one another at Sandy Beach, was postponed until tomorrow because of the lack of waves. The original date was Sept. 4th, but the surf at Sandy’s that day was as flat as a pool, instead of being the

grounds for O‘ahu’s top surfers. Finally, starting tomorrow at 10 a.m., the RIVALS contest will feature ten of the best surfers from each shore, along with one surprise surfer on each squad, who will be revealed that day. Turk “Hawaiian Hurricane” Cazimero will be the emcee. Free Red Bull energy drinks will be provided. Following the RIVALS contest will be another event sponsored by Red Bull. The “Who is J.O.B.” movie premier at the Waikiki Parc Hotel will be the Hawai‘i release of professional Surfer, and North Shore native, Jamie O’Brien’s newest surf movie.

The movie took three years to shoot, cut, edit and finalize. “Who is J.O.B.” will be O’Brien’s third surf movie, following 2005’s “Freakshow” and 2006’s “Freakside”. For those driving to Waikīkī, parking is available on the Ala Wai and parking garages in and around Waikīkī. The Parc will not validate parking for those attending the premier. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and only 200 spots are available to the public. First come, first serve. The premier will be on the pool deck of the Parc and Red Bull will have its own elevator for those attending.

Seniors Deptula and Punzal nearing end of rainbow Final two home games this weekend

RUSSELL TOLENTINO Sports Editor When Rainbow Wahine soccer head coach Pinsoom Tenzing was asked what senior captains Chelsea Deptula and Mari Punzal have meant to the program, his answer was simple. “Everything,” he said. The two have been four-year starters and are considered the heart of the team by teammates and coaches. They will play their final two games at the Waipi‘o Penninsula Soccer Stadium this Friday and Sunday. “They’ve been the rock of the program ever since their freshman year,” Tenzing said. “Both of them have been absolutely tremendous.” Deptula, who is from Mililani, said her career has gone quickly. “Time flew by,” said Deptula, the anchor of the defense. “I had a great time. Met a bunch of good people, good teammates, good friends. “I really enjoyed myself while playing for the Wahine,” she said. Punzal, from Kapa’a, Kaua‘i, had a similar response. “(It’s been) great,” Punzal said. “Very memorable.” Deptula and Punzal both came to Hawai‘i in 2007, following decorated prep careers. Deptula led Punahou to back-to-back state titles in 2004 and 2005 and was a three-time all-state selection. Then in 2006 and 2007, Punzal led Kamehameha to state crowns and was named the 2007 State Player of the Year. The success continued through their freshman year as the two helped Hawai‘i to its first Western Athletic Conference championship and NCAA appearance. Punzal said her favorite memory at the University of Hawai‘i was when the team rode the trolley in Waikiki and waved to, and highfived fans following the ’07 season. “Everything just seemed so

united,” she said.

INSPIRATIONAL LEADERS Although the ’Bows have struggled since then – and are only 3-11-2 this season – Punzal and Deptula’s impact and influence is evident. “They’re really motivational and inspirational,” sophomore midfielder Bree Locquiao. “They push us to do better in practice and in games and make sure we don’t give up.” “Mari and Chelsea play a big role in our team,” sophomore goalie Kanani Taaca said. “They’re both great leaders on and off the field.” Taaca said their dedication set an example. “They’ll work hard and it shows the upperclassmen what we have to look up to and what big shoes we have to fi ll,” Taaca said. Punzal said the program taught her to become a leader. “It gave me a lot of responsibility I had to deal with whether I wanted to or not. It made me grow

and be an older sister figure to the younger girls,” she said. “That was never my role because I was the youngest in my family so it was cool taking that role on.” And their impact will be felt even when they’re gone. “It’s a chain reaction,” Taaca said. “When you see people above you do well, you want to strive to get to their level. It makes the team better as a whole and they do a good job in raising the bar for everyone else below them.”

BIT TERSWEET END Unfortunately for Punzal, an ACL injury against Idaho earlier this month ended her career. “We’re going to miss Mari tremendously in the most critical time of our season, namely, the WAC season,” Tenzing said. “She is truly the heartbeat of our program.” Despite the injury, Punzal still remains upbeat and insists it didn’t take anything away from her season. “I still cherish the moments

that I had here and I know everything happens for a reason and it’s not like I’m putting doubt on it,” she said. “It just happens. It was fun while it lasted.” And once again, Punzal is inspiring teammates. “Since Mari is hurt it gives us more of a push to win WAC and achieve more than the last year,” Locquiao said. “We were sad but (there is) nothing we can do about (it). We just gotta push everybody else ... but we still look at her as a leader.” Punzal will be cheering on her team for the rest of the season. “I’m still part of the team so if they win, we all win,” Punzal said. “I’m still excited.”

WHEN I GROW UP The players are also role models to the community. The team averages about 700 fans per game and signs autographs for kids after matches. When they were younger, Deptula and Punzal were those fans. “I always looked up to the girls

playing for UH,” Deptula said. “It’s kind of a shocker how I’m playing in front of the fans that I once was (a part of), and in front of family, friends and people that look up to you.” Taaca said playing for UH is a privilege, but also a responsibility. “Being a player (for UH) is a big impact on the community. A lot of little kids come out after their games and watch. We’re big role models for them,” Taaca said. “We make a big difference in their lives. “And that’s what Mari and Chelsea do a good job of,” Taaca continued. “They really interact with the kids and everyone looks up to them and wants to be in their shoes one day.” Punzal scored 11 career goals and started 71 games in her career while Deptula has scored 13 goals and started 75 games, with the rest of the season left. But despite their contributions on the field, Tenzing agreed when asked if the two are ideal student-athletes. “I can easily say ‘yes’ to that,” Tenzing said.

THE FUTURE Punzal, a two-time all-WAC academic honoree, hopes to get into nursing or dental hygiene school following the season, while Deptula would like to complete her teaching certificate. As for their parting shot to the underclassmen? “Don’t take things for granted,” Punzal said. “Keep working hard and it’ll defi nitely pay off.” Fittingly, Deptula said the players should expect to grow as a person and player while on the team. “You learn new stuff every year in this program,” Deptula said. “And that progression has been huge – seeing the growth in the program, myself and Mari.”
