Office of Honor answers your question Q: Many girls on campus wear dresses that are too short. Why don’t you arrest them? A: The Honor Code Office is working to inform students of the standards on campus, and encourage them to abide by them. Steve Baker, director of the Honor Code Office at BYU, said, “The Honor Code Office does not run around trying to find violations of the dress and grooming standards. Students need to do their part, and it’s the university’s obligation to make expectations clear.” BYUH students need to remember that they are representing the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and take responsibility for themselves in ensuring that they are living the Honor Code that they signed in order to be BYUH students. – AM Y HANSON

Lauren Bullock pleads a hungry, off-campus student. A recently graduated Psychology major, her love for students knows no bounds. She sees the greener side of essentially any situation, professing that her favorite part dealPhoto by BartofJolley ing with accidents in the hale is having the opportunity to serve and spend time with the students entrusted to her care. However, it is her love of learning that makes an impression. She adores every part of being a student. She can’t wait to get back to furthering her education, but has postponed it in order to help hale residents further theirs. Bullock is heavily involved in initiatives to develop hale programming that fosters learning of life, communication, and conflict-resolution skills. She is also hoping to help transform housing’s role in facilitating education, including forming hale study groups, initiating tutoring opportunities, etc. HER TAKE: “I love being a hale parent!

T SA ADDS NE W REGULAT ION S J U ST IN TIME FO R T H E HOLIDA Y S On Nov. 30 the Obama administration announced the implementation of the Secure Flight Program. The new counterterrorism initiative will likely result in longer airport lines for BYUH student who plan to fly home for the holidays. The new program requires all 197 airlines flying in and out of the U.S. to check the full name, gender, and birth date for their passengers. This information will be checked against terror watch lists to prevent potential terrorists from boarding flights and should minimize passenger misidentification, which has been problematic as of recent.
Ke Alaka‘i Ke Alaka’i
“I’ve just always used my passport, which has my full name already,” commented Mckae Joyner, a sophomore in international cultural studies from Connell, Wash. A passport or driver’s license, which contains full name, gender, and date of birth, are now the preferred forms of identification for individuals. With the new rules in action, the information provided by each passenger must be identical to the information on the government-issued id used by the passenger at the time of booking.
AT THE AIRPORT
Have the Following Ready •Identification •Boarding pass •Keep your airline boarding pass and government-issued photo ID available until exiting the security checkpoint
The Secure Flight Program was one of the 9/11 Commission’s original recommendations for increased travel security that took several years and several revisions to finalize. Andrew Weinstein, a spokesman for Interactive Travel Services Association, advised travelers to arrive at airports earlier than normal in light of the new rules. “There may be delays as the airlines work to process travelers who have not provided [a full name, gender, and birth date] in advance of check in,” Weinstein said. “By enhancing and streamlining the watch list matching process, the Secure Flight Program makes travel safer and easier for millions of Americans,” said acting TSA Administrator Gale Rossides. - T AYLOR RIP P Y & AP

TSA Hassle-Free Security Tips
•Arrive on time. Arrival time recommendations vary by airline and day of travel, so check with your carrier. Remember to give yourself adequate time to check your baggage and move through security. •Wear slip-on shoes. This will allow you to take them off and put them back on quickly, without having to sit down. •Pets. Please remove all animals from their carrying cases and send the case through the X-ray machine. Hold your pet in your arms and proceed through the metal detector. •Children. Please take your infants and children out of baby carriers and strollers and take them through the metal detector with you. Strollers and baby carriers go through the X-ray machine with your bags. If possible, collapse your stroller before you get to the metal detector •Think before you speak. Belligerent behavior, inappropriate jokes and threats will not be tolerated. They will result in delays and possibly missing your flight. Local law enforcement may be called as necessary.

Checked Baggage •Do not pack oversized electronics (laptops, full-size video game consoles, DVD players and video cameras that use cassettes) in your checked baggage •Pack coats and jackets in your checked baggage when possible because they must be inspected. •When in doubt, leave it out. If you’re not sure about whether you can bring an item through the checkpoint, put it in your checked bag or leave it at home.
Dress The Part •Keys, loose change, mobile phones, pagers, and personal data assistants (PDAs) set off detectors •Heavy jewelry (including pins, necklaces, bracelets, rings, watches, earrings, body piercings, cuff links, lanyards or bolo ties) should
not be worn through security •Clothing with metal buttons, snaps or studs; metal hair barrettes or other hair decoration; belt buckles; and under-wire bras may also set off detectors. •Wear socks to avoid walking barefooted through security.
•Pack an organized carry-on bag using layers •Pack a layer of clothes, then electronics, more clothes, and then any heavier items. This will help transportation security officers see what’s in your bag. •Small electronics, such as iPods, can remain in your carry-on. •Film; undeveloped film should go in your carry-on bag. Film 800 or higher need to be hand inspected. •Put liquids and lotions in a 1 quart-sized, clear, plastic, zip-top bag so it can be easily removed from your carry-on to be scanned. •Do not wrap gifts. If a security officer needs to inspect a package, they may have to unwrap your gift.

I T E M S TO C A RRY-ON
1 Airline snacks don’t always come free, so packing a few in your carry-on may save you money as well as mid-flight hunger pains. 2 Colgate wisps are a quick way to freshen up you breath and remove plaque after a long in-flight nap. 3 A sleeping mask: strap one on while you rest and enjoy the dark regardless of any light in the cabin. 4 An iPod can hold a lot more than music. Parooze the itunes store before you travel to download any of thousands of free podcasts, lectures, and even language courses. Lds.org offers general conference addresses and other 8
10 downloadable content. 5 Get a head start on your summer reading list this winter by enjoying a book on your flight home for the holidays. To cut back on the weight of your luggage, snag an electronic reader like a kindle or nook that holds thousands of books in a single tablet. You can always borrow a good book, an e-reader, or grab your favorite title from the library. 6 Bring a notebook or journal to write in. Flights from Hawaii provide at least a few hours to empty your mind onto paper. 7 Boost your immune system to avoid catching an in-flight cold. Airborne tablets are portable, water-soluble and contain 16 vitamins,
minerals and herbs. 8 A hoodie can double as a pillow or blanket during your flight. Depending on your destination, having a hoodie on hand may help you adjust to winter climates cooler than Hawaii’s. 9 Chewing gum helps relieve inner ear pressure from flying and replaces the taste of pretzels and peanuts with something a bit more fresh. 10 The infrequent beverage cart visit to your row may leave you parched during your flight. Buy a bottle of water after you get through security or bring an empty bottle to keep yourself hydrated while airborne.

M u sic al m om e n t su r pr ise s stu de n ts Ke Alaka‘i videographers and photographers snuck glances across the cafeteria on the night Nov. 17, preparing for the mostly unanticipated cafeteria musical by assorted choir members. “When things get loud and hectic they are probably going to break out in song and dance,” explained freshman Shalah Manning, studying art from Texas, who suspected something would happen prior to the performance. Many students, however, did not predict the spontaneous eruption of music and dance. There were shocked faces throughout the cafeteria. Many people pulled out cell phone cameras and crowded in the main dining area to film the spectacular. Although at the start there were many weird looks, by the end the entire crowd was cheering and excited for what various people said made their night. Julia Avila, junior in psychology from Australia said it was an entertaining event because she likes to see things like this that are different. “Stuff like this brightens people’s days,” she said. Those that participated in the event thought it was fun and were excited to be a part of it. Rachelle Christy, a senior in social work from Laie, said she felt lucky and was happy she was asked to participate. “It’s fun to be in the Cafe,” she remarked. Since Christy lives off campus, she doesn’t get to eat in the cafeteria. The cafeteria musical was put on by Ke Alaka‘i and will be used in the new video yearbook being sold this semester. To purchase a copy of the yearbook, come to the Ke Alaka‘i office in Aloha Center 134. It costs $10 and will be distributed in January. - M AR GARE T J OHNSON

W EA TH E R BO RE D O M ? The weather in Hawaii may be significantly more pleasant than most of the rest of the world, but when there are constant clouds and rain it is easy to get bored. The usual beach playground is usually out of the question when the weather is cold or gloomy. So what should you do when the weather is bad and you are stuck indoors? The following are some ideas that you can try next time you’re bored. Game Night: Organize a game night with all of your friends. Game nights can help pass the time and can create meaningful memories. From a game of scrabble to cards, game nights can be a lot of fun and everyone else is likely as bored as you. Movies: Going to the theater to see a new movie can be a fun way to spend any gloomy day. If it is a Sunday you can watch
the movies at the Temple Visitor’s Center for free! Gym: The bad weather is a great time to go to the gym. It is a lot easier to be motivated to spend the day working out when it’s raining. After the rain stops you will look and feel better. Walmart/Shopping Trip: It’s nice to get the needed shopping out of the way on gloomy days. You might as well get all of your necessities when the weather is too bad for the beach. These shopping trips can end up being a lot of fun if you make it a group outing. Glow Putt: Glow Putt is a fun way to spend time indoors. Kaneohe mall has a glow-in-the-dark mini golf course, which is suitable for all weather conditions. Read: I know it seems crazy, but reading has entertained people for centuries. It can take you anywhere without leaving your room. So, try curling up with a good book and enjoy. - SU ZANNE TU TTLE
Jeremy Nguyen displays his senior art exhibit in the McKary Auditorium. Photo by Bart Jolley
‘The Beauty of Landscape, Still Life’ Visitors to Jeremy Nguyen’s senior art exhibit, “The Beauty of Landscape and Still Life,” were given the chance to leave the graduating artist a brief, handwritten note in his guestbook. Nguyen’s collection of oil paintings on canvas and paper might best be described by reading those messages. “So much attention to detail and balance,” wrote one guest. “Your paintings are full of life, energy, vibrancy, richness in colors. What talent you have,” commented another. With titles like “Orange Leave,” “Harvest,” and “Jungle,” Nguyen’s pieces focus on natural subjects. His paintings range from landscapes, fruits, and flower still lifes, to dramatically up-close views of natural substances and abstracts. Many of his landscapes feature water as the central subject.
“The paintings including water scenes are very peaceful and serene. I would like to look at them and listen to classical guitar or harp music,” expressed one guest. “‘Jungle’ was like standing in the rainforest, and I could feel the bark and water and leaves,” wrote another guest in Nguyen’s guestbook. Jeremy prefaced his show with these words: “When I was a little boy, I considered myself an artist because I love to create... I believe that everybody can become a great artist if they have passion for what they want to be. God blessed me with many talents, so I have to discover and develop them. I cannot live without art.” Originally from Vietnam, Nguyen plans to move to New York City upon graduating to attend the Fashion Institute
of Technology. He attended hair school in Cambodia and is graduating BYUH with a Bachelor of Fine Arts, both in preparation to become a fashion designer. “First, I have passion for fashion. Second, I want to combine hair and art knowledge together... I think I have my own unit to create in the fashion field. If I don’t have art knowledge, I don’t think my fashion collection will be good,” explained Nguyen. One guest urged him, “Keep using your talents to build and bless the kingdom of God and uplift people.” Nguyen’s show was followed by Mayo Michihiro’s senior exhibit on Nov. 22. The art show currently on display is by Uli Vimahi. It is called “Building of The Strongest Bond” and will be up in the McKay Auditorium foyer until the end of this week. - AMY HANSON
