real-life situations. He concluded, saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is no direct correlation between someone playing violent video games and someone acting in violent ways.â&#x20AC;? Senior Chelsea Rouff said playing video games is a fun recreational activity. Rouff estimates she plays up to an hour every day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think that violent video games have an impact on peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s behaviors. People in general are smart enough to determine what is real and what is not. Even though one might play violent video games doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean that they are going to act upon those behaviors,â&#x20AC;? Rouff said. According to CNN, Vice President Joe Biden met with leaders of the video game industry in early January. Biden is overseeing a White House task force to stop gun violence across the country. Attorney General Eric Holder and Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius were also present for the meeting. The talks started in the wake of the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. and other similar incidents across the country. Before the meeting Biden stated, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know there is no single answer and, quite frankly, we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even know whether some of the things people think impact on this [gun violence] actually impact on it or not.â&#x20AC;? The task force set up by President Obama is not only meeting with representatives from the video game industry. Talks are also XQGHUZD\ ZLWK WKH 1DWLRQDO 5LĂ H Association and other gun advocate groups according to CNN. Vice President Biden has pushed for universal background checks

for all gun sales including other recommendations that he has sent to the president. Meanwhile individual states are creating their own measures to combat gun violence. According to CNN, Massachusetts has removed all arcade games with guns or shooting components from public rest stops. In Louisiana, Gov. Bobby Jindal proposed legislation to join 17 other states and make mental

health records part of the screening criteria for federal background FKHFNVWREX\Ă&#x20AC;UHDUPV According to a study conducted by the psychology department at Brock University in Ontario, Canada, there is a positive correlation between violent video game play and aggression. The study indicates that the high level of competition and the fast pace of action often found in violent video games may

increase physiological arousal, and this arousal might result in aggressive behavior. However, the study also indicates that there is less evidence to support a long-term relation between these behaviors. After the meeting with Biden, Chairmen of The International Game Developers Association Daniel Greenberg released this statement to PVQEFFRP´:KLOHVFLHQWLĂ&#x20AC;FVWXG\ has shown that imaginary violence

KSC educators connect with China PAM BUMP

EQUINOX STAFF Last week, 22 educators from Shanghai, China visited the Keene State College campus, as the college continues to focus on global collaborations and gain insight from other educational systems around the world. One of the 22 visitors, Jinfei Huang, Principal of Dagong Middle School in Shanghai, China, said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was very informative since we experienced in person the difference between Chinese and US education systems. In addition to touring the campus of US public middle and high school, we had the opportunity to talk to students, teachers and school leaders. We also EULHĂ \REVHUYHGVRPHFODVVURRPVÂľ Huang, who works within the Chongming District of Shanghai, added, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Among all the activities during our visit, I like visiting school and classrooms the most since it gives us direct experience of teaching and learning. We can easily related to our own teaching and administrative practice.â&#x20AC;? Huang shared that this visit ZDVKLVĂ&#x20AC;UVWDEURDGSURIHVVLRQDOO\ The visit was organized by Associate Provost Ann Rancourt and Assistant Professor of Education and the Director of Institutional Assessment, Yi Gong. According to Gong, â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were here for three days. They visited the Department of Education [DOE], Keene State College and three local schools - Keene High School, Keene Middle School and the Marlborough School.â&#x20AC;? Gong explained that although the visit would have created a good discussion with KSC students, the short timing of the visit did not leave any time for students to participate in discussion with the Chinese educators. Associate Provost Ann Rancourt explained WKDW LW ZDV GLIĂ&#x20AC;FXOW WR LQYROYH VWXGHQWV RQ WKLV visit further as she mentioned, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wanted the

students to have an opportunity to talk to these professors about their experiences, but it [the major planning of the visit] was over break. We werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t able to get information out to students.â&#x20AC;? Gong shared that visiting kindergarten professors from China were able to participate in a lesson with the Early Childhood education department and its students in the past years at KSC. Rancourt also explained, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The goal of the visit at Keene State College was for the principals of the various schools to have an opportunity to hear about the different types of academic programs we offer at Keene State [College] and the kinds of collaborations we might forge with their schools to encourage students to apply and attend Keene State [College].â&#x20AC;? Rancourt also added that the college would like to encourage other students, such as those from the schools in Shanghai, China, to apply to KSC in the future. Rancourt also shared that China was not the only country that KSC was looking to collaborate and work with in the future. Rancourt stated that, â&#x20AC;&#x153;India is another country that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking at and establishing relationships with. We are also trying to forge relationships with two countries in South America right now, primarily Ecuador and Chile.â&#x20AC;? Rancourt said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;If our students donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have an opportunity to travel to a place like China and other countries because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cost prohibitive then we need to provide our own students the opportunity to interact with students from other countries. That means trying to have more of a focus of recruiting students from other countries to attend Keene State [College].â&#x20AC;? Rancourt shared that she too visited schools in other countries with KSC in the past. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We share so many of the same goals in wanting to educate our students and in caring about our

students,â&#x20AC;? Rancourt said about her visit to China. Although both Rancourt and Gong agreed that the visit went smoothly, Gong mentioned, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I do think one way to improve this kind of thing is to have more in depth discussions.â&#x20AC;? Gong addressed that, as the United States and China have different educational systems and goals, it is important to collaborate and develop an understanding between the two countries. One difference that Gong pointed out, was the idea that students in China often focus on their PDMRUVSHFLĂ&#x20AC;FFRXUVHVUDWKHUWKDQWKHIXOOFRXUVH load of required classes, such as courses in the liberal arts, at their own institution. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In China, those subject areas [within the Liberal Arts] are not considered major courses. Students only focus on those major courses,â&#x20AC;? Gong said. Rancourt explained that the collaboration between the Chinese visitors and KSC would allow each side to gain insight on different topics from each other. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Chinese students surpass American students in the sciences and math completely. American students surpass Chinese students in creative thinking and innovation. One of the things that teachers in the United States do is try to help students be more creative. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of the things that the Chinese want to get from us--to have their students be engaged in the more creative thinking and processing. What we want from our Chinese colleagues is to learn how to get our students more adept at science and math,â&#x20AC;? Rancourt noted. KSC sophomore Mimi Levesque, a communication studies major at KSC, said that she believed these types of visits sounded â&#x20AC;&#x153;very cool.â&#x20AC;? Levesque noted, â&#x20AC;&#x153;It shows that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re reaching out internationally.â&#x20AC;&#x153; Levesque added that these types of visits at KSC were great additions to other programs such as studying abroad with the Global EducaWLRQ2IĂ&#x20AC;FH Levesque said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Being here, or in another country for more than one semester would allow someone to get fully immersed in a culture.â&#x20AC;? Despite their differences, both KSC faculty and their Chinese colleagues were able to make â&#x20AC;&#x153;wonderful conversationâ&#x20AC;? about educational issues, according to Gong. $VDĂ&#x20AC;QDOWKRXJKWRQWKHLQWHUQDWLRQDOYLVLWV of colleagues from China and others of the past few years, Rancourt explained that students should focus on collaboration rather than competition in the future. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our Chinese colleagues and many of us EHOLHYH WKDW LQ WKH WZHQW\Ă&#x20AC;UVW FHQWXU\ LI VWXdents donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how to collaborate with each other, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not gonna be able to solve the challenges that this century presents. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about collaboration,â&#x20AC;? Rancourt concluded.

Listen! The students are trying to say something

$QKRQHVWUHĂ HFWLRQIURPWKHVWXGHQWERG\VKRZHG itself on a map of the KSC campus and pointed to the Young Student Center as the center of campus. Many students generally agree that Appian Way is the center of campus. This information isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t breaking news, but what is interesting is the way the school went about retrieving this information and the truth it revealed. Students were asked to place different colored stickers on places that represent different types of locations on campus. In looking over this map, one could observe that students in small groups each have their special little places on campus. Many students claimed to enjoy â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jurassic Parkâ&#x20AC;? on campus while others may not even know what this is. Other students put stickers on the bridge behind the gym WKDWOHDGVWRWKHDWKOHWLFĂ&#x20AC;HOGV6RPHVWXGHQWVPD\ not even be aware that exists. The point here is that students didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just pick places they go to everyday to show our administrators what we think they want to see. But students spoke out about the little spaces on campus that really mean something special to them. Random places outside of dorms or areas off the bike path were covered in little groups of stickers. Maybe those areas just need more places to sit. Either way, this is important data. Instead of brushing off these few students, maybe the school administrators will contemplate putting more lampposts in some of these dark places off the beaten path. Or install more emergency call stations in the IDUWKHUFRUQHUVRIWKH$WKOHWLFĂ&#x20AC;HOGVRUWKHEDFNRI the Redfern. Students are trying to communicate that they are not and cannot always travel solely down Appian Way and stand under streetlights the entire time, including the fact that not all friend groups congregate in the student center. Students are spreading out more and utilizing all the little paths and spaces on campus, and these too need to STAFF COMMENTARY be maintained and protected.

The most egregious crime perpetrated towards the student body is not one of a violent QDWXUHEXWDĂ&#x20AC;QDQFLDORQH,VSHDNRIWKHWH[WERRN dilemma, a miserable wallet taxing ordeal that invariably ends in crushing frustration. It is a routine familiar to most: email the teacher, ask for the ISBN number of the required textbook, and order the textbook, used, off Amazon. But what happens when you do that DQGWKHFKHDSHVWWH[WERRN\RXFDQĂ&#x20AC;QGLVGROlars? I applaud the teachers who are sensitive to the monetary situation of most students, and handpick the most inexpensive required readings. The conventional route taken to buying books is going to the bookstore, preceded by a meeting with an accountant, then paying through the nose for a seventh edition textbook, hardcover, with a CD, which never sees use, that publishers attribute the high cost to. The real salt-in-the-wound moment comes

when you realize that you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even have to use the book in the course which it is called for. No worries. Just return the book back for a full refund of the original cost. Surely the school will understand. Of course, the window of time for returns is so small that by the time you left the bookstore from purchasing your â&#x20AC;&#x153;required reading,â&#x20AC;? it is probably closed. Good deals are rarely found through other options. Heralding the end of the semester are the various vans that pepper the surrounding campus, offering great deals on buybacks, converting that 73 dollar net loss into a 60 dollar net loss. The only reason a conscious human being would return a 73 dollar textbook for 13 dollars is because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the only option, and offers a slight soothing of the sting since you suddenly have cash in your pocket that was not there before. The same goes for reselling the books on

Amazon or some other online store. You get a return much lower than what you paid for. Call to action: teachers please pick cheaper textbooks. Some make the effort and you know who you are. As for the rest, it would just be nice to know if the books are going to be used or not. It is wonderful when teachers photocopy the chapters to put on Blackboard. Until then, getting a book through a loan is probably one of the better ways to save money. I just ordered a book on loan for 60 days which only cost me $22 instead of the $70 it would have cost if bought used. There are a slew of clever entrepreneurs out there who are creating clever ways to pay less for textbooks, some of them probably recent college grads who know all too well the pain of overpaying for books.

Not safe to walk home alone at 3 a.m. Your own footsteps echo in your ears, and a dog is barking a few streets over. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cold. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always cold in Keene at night.

shouting something. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t count the times Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve walked home at night alone, at three in the morning. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t check my corners, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t carry a weapon. I just put my headphones on and set my legs on auto pilot. Perfectly safe, in my bubble of music that blends seconds to minutes as I walk home. But weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not totally safe. There was a mugging of four students last weekend, Campus Convenience was robbed at gunpoint early January and there was a gunman on campus before break. Though we may shrug these instances off as isolated examples, this is an increase. And it really does bring up the question of whether or not weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re safe. What is safe? ,VVDIHW\KDYLQJDSROLFHRIĂ&#x20AC;FHURQHYHU\FRUQHUDQ armored car to deal with hostile situations, a pistol in a shoulder holster?

In our society weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to strike a balance between the two of them, but while it may have worked when our parents were children, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a different time. Drones are killing thousands of people. There are riots across the world. The Eurozone is breaking down. There have been so many recent shootings that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve lost count. My roommate Derek and I talk on this subject often, and he put it very well. He said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see violence, we wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see protests or revolutions, until people start going hungry.â&#x20AC;? I know so many people who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t or canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rely on their parents to make ends meet. And theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really struggling to do so. If this becomes more prevalent, we may see more of these simple crimes, and we may see them escalate. We already have protests in Central Square. As the world is becoming more chaotic, as things get worse, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have to come to terms that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not just a sleepy little town. There are dangerous people

everywhere; weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have to talk about this. The best advice Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gotten about this came from a press conference held in one of my journalism courses last semester. Katie Corbett, the Campus Safety/KPD OLDLVRQRIĂ&#x20AC;FHUWR.HHQH6WDWH&ROOHJHĂ&#x20AC;HOGHGTXHVWLRQV from some 20 journalism students. In a question regarding safety, Corbett said the main thing is to be smart. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t walk alone at three in the morning. Listen and walk with friends. The world isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t too bad yet, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not in a complete police state and there arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t roving packs of gunmen traveling in pickup trucks. But weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not totally safe. Too many times have I heard that a friend of mine stumbled home at two in the morning alone. And there are people who are willing to steal, threaten, hurt others. Just be smart. Please. Be safe. Augustus Stahl can be contacted at astahl@keene-equinox.com

Attention students who care about drug reform Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s currently a bill that would dramatically reform drug policy in New Hampshire for the better: NH HB 492, a bill that if passed would legalize the possession of up to an ounce of marijuana for adults and would regulate the distribution of it to licensed vendors. The bill, which both house Democrats and Republicans sponsored, will go before the New Hampshire House of Representativesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Criminal Justice Committee Feb. 14. Along with multiple doctors, ex- police RIĂ&#x20AC;FHUVSULVRQUHIRUPHUVDQGKXPDQULJKWV groups, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not alone in saying that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about time. Especially in a state which claims to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Live Free or Die.â&#x20AC;? The case could be made very clear for why NH HB 492 should be passed in the New Hampshire House. While I feel like a kid banging his head against the wall here, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Think of the children.â&#x20AC;? Odd way to open up a pro-marijuana argument, considering itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the line used by WHUULĂ&#x20AC;HG '$5( SDUHQWV DJDLQVW LW %XW VHULously think of the children. DrugWarfacts. org stated that high school students are more likely to smoke marijuana than to use tobacco, 24 percent to 15 percent. The National Center for Substance Abuse at Columbia University noted that 91 percent of high school students know someone who sells marijuana. If we regulate marijuana, like we do alcohol and tobacco, then we can put restrictions on it. If a 16 year old goes to a liquor store, he or she has to provide an ID. If a 16 year old goes into a cafeteria, all that person needs is money and he gets his weed. Allowing marijuana in the public market would allow restrictions on it that will protect children. It will protect them better than the black market. Prohibition doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work. Havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t we learned anything from history (or HBOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Boardwalk Empireâ&#x20AC;?). In the 1920s, we applied prohibition toward alcohol through the Eighteenth Amendment. The result was an explosion of violence through the underground market with no affect on peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drinking habits. We wouldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never known the name Al Capone had it not been for prohibition. The problem with prohibition is by completely banning something, one leaves the object banned into a black market, which could create more danger to the public than regulation. If we let marijuana become legal in New Hampshire, we will be taking a big chunk

out of the pockets of the Mexican drug cartels that have committed headline-worthy DWURFLWLHVWRSURWHFWWKHLUSURĂ&#x20AC;WV Think of the prison problem and oppression. The United States has 5 percent of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s population but 25 percent of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prison population. The majority of prisoners are illiterate, substance abusers, and black and Latino males. Black Americans make up 13 percent of drug users and 35 percent of the drug arrests, according to the American Civil Liberties Union. Many of the people are in jail for nonviolent drug crimes. Reason magazine accounted that one in four inmates in prison are non-violent drug offenders, many for

marijuana use. So the logic is we should throw people in jail â&#x20AC;Ś for using substances that can hurt them. If we are going to throw people in jail for poor health choices, why not throw the morbidly obese customers at Burger King in jail? Legalizing marijuana has connections to the prison industrial problem. By legalizing marijuana in New Hampshire, we can also take money hit the pockets of the private prison owners who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait to build another place to lock you up.

Hallmark didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t create Valentineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day It was created by card companies. It isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a real holiday. It makes me want to barf.

Many claim the holiday GRHVQ¡WFHOHEUDWHORYHEXWH[SORLWVLWIRUSURĂ&#x20AC;W6RRIWHQ, hear Valentineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day attacked like no other holiday that we celebrate. And why? Like most holidays, the history of Valentineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day is entrenched in myth. There was more than one St. Valentine in history and nobody is quite sure how the name became associated with love and romance. The most popular of the St. Valentines was a Roman priest. According to legend, the priest caught the eye of the emperor Claudius II when Valentine was discovered illegally marrying couples. Claudius let that crime go but when the priest tried to convert the emperor, Claudius had Valentine beaten, VWRQHGDQGĂ&#x20AC;QDOO\GHFDSLWDWHGRQ\RXJXHVVHGLW)HE 14. According to Allison Berry of Time Magazine, it was somewhere in the fourteenth century that Feb. 14 became the romantic holiday we celebrate today. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s likely that Valentineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s secret marriages are a myth built upon over the years to better represent the holiday it came to be associated with. Little is known for sure about the St. Valentines or the historical events surrounding them. Does this make the holiday any less meaningful? If weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re to hold Valentineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s day accountable for its inaccuracies, what of our other national holidays? James Loewen, author of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lies My Teacher Told Meâ&#x20AC;?, will inform us that Thanksgiving was originally invented by Lincoln to boost patriotism during the Civil War. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t until the 1890s that Squanto and the Pilgrims were added to the holidayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s backstory.

Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no doubt that Squanto was a real person, but his true relationship with the Pilgrims has been vastly misinterpreted by the myths of Thanksgiving Day. Thanksgiving, like Valentineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day, has its historical Ă DZV%XWVRGRHV&KULVWPDV6XUH6W1LFKRODVZDVD real person as well. But I have a strange feeling that he never soared the night sky in a sleigh pulled by reindeer. Still, do we not think of Dec. 25 as magical? And canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t we still take the day of Nov. 28 to contemplate what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re thankful for? And if thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s true, then I think Feb. 14 is as good a day as any to celebrate one of the most powerful human sentiments of all. Love. And why not? Because weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re worried about being exploited by Hallmark? Even Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll admit that Valentineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day has been hijacked by card companies somewhere along the way. But there is no higher authority forcing us to buy URVHVFKRFRODWHVDQGFDUGV2XUVLJQLĂ&#x20AC;FDQWRWKHUPD\ claim they want the clichĂŠ Valentine gifts but trust me; they will not be disappointed if we organize an elaborate scavenger hunt, cover a pond in rose petals, or anything unique and meaningful expressing how much they mean to us. That is why Valentineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day is one of my favorite holidays. Love, like magic and thankfulness, deserves a holiday. How it came to be isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t important. How we spend it now is. Valentineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day is an opportunity; an excuse to do something truly special. And if weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re willing to go that extra mile, why not do it on Feb. 14? Zach Pearson can be contacted at zpearson@keene-equinox.com

STAFF COMMENTARY

Standing proudly by a three-year-old Blackberry In this narcissistic, technology advancing world we live in, we sit through people presenting their latest gadgets fresh out of the oven. That kid just got the new iPhone 5 even though his iPhone 4S was FedExâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ed like a bat out of hell four months ago. That girl just received her Samsung Galaxy S III only to crack it when she drunkenly smashed it on WKHĂ RRUDW0F&XH¡VODVW7KXUVGD\ The campus is saturated with smartphone-handling zombies who seem like they could care less about how they access the internet and the latest applications on their device; as long as itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pristine and shiny. And then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s me. With an almost 3-year-old Blackberry. Sigh. God Kattey, when are you going to get a new phone? I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe you still have that thing. That actually works? Why isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it a touchscreen? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard it all before. Frankly, Blackberrys were the beeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s knees before Apple created the iPhone and dominated the market. So at one point, haters, I was cool. I was a part of your leather jacket clique. But as a member of T-Mobile, iPhones are out of my reach, and I refuse to own anything with a touchscreen. Call me crazy, but I love my Blackberry. Yes, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s aged and branded with my catâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bite marks. There are scratches all over the screen and most of the letters have worn off, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mine. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s better than any of your iPhones and Galaxies and whatever fancy phone you have. 1) You drop your phone and voila, you now have

a permanent portrait of a sophisticated tree on your screen. But not only is your screen damaged, virtually every function is affected: the keyboard, dialpad, etc. 2) I drop mine, and the edges merely get scathed. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s far more durable. 3) iPhones and Galaxies and the like are intriguLQJ7KHLUFDSDELOLWLHVDQGDSSOLFDWLRQVDUHGHĂ&#x20AC;QLWHO\ compelling, but only for so long. 4) I mean, if everyone has one, is it still that special? People who own the same Blackberry as I do are far and few in between. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a conversation piece. 5) If you got this far reading this, that means youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re interested. 6) I can only speak for mine, but the software on the Blackberry is still pretty swift. After 3 years one would think the software has run itself down. While LWKDVLWVKLFFXSVLW¡VHIĂ&#x20AC;FLHQWRYHUDOO  ,QFOXGHGLQWKHHIĂ&#x20AC;FLHQF\LVWKHPDSDSSOLFDWLRQ Blackberry maps > Apple Maps.

Keene Stater becoming a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Capetownianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Brittany Ballantyne, South Africa Howzit? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s slang for â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;how is it going, how are you?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Yes, the majority of people do speak English. No, I am not living in a hut or with a tribe. The city of Cape Town, South Africa, where I am studying DEURDGLVDSODFHĂ&#x20AC;OOHGZLWKZDUP smiles, loud streets and the most welcoming of people. It is far from the modernized New York City or Boston, but that is its charm. Fruit vendors line the side roads, women walk around with infants wrapped around their backs and internet is of limited availability. Hospitality, on the other hand, is something found in every place one goes-even in a township. Our study abroad program through the University of Cape Town was invited to Ocean View, a community that was built up from the ground during the apartheid era in South Africa. During this time, black Africans were forced out of their own homes into new neighborhoods, many of them being communities where hundreds of shacks were piled on top of each other along lined dirt roads. The abolishment of apartheid took place in 1990, when the last repeals of apartheid laws occurred. A majority of the adults who live in the town today were children when apartheid began. They told stories of the elderly who died of heartbreak from losing everything they had and stories of the struggles their parents, as well as their fellow peers, had to overcome. The area had never been inhabited until the great number of black Africans were forced to live there.

I could write about the violence and the confusion and how the apartheid, as they say here, was â&#x20AC;&#x153;good for no one.â&#x20AC;? But instead, Ocean View itself is a reminder of such a heartbreaking time, and also as a place of hope. People may not have everything, but together they have each other and that has been what makes them proud to call this place their home. One thing they are especially proud of is their talented artists. Some of the children from Ocean View put on a concert for us and others danced. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure if my smile or the childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s smiles were bigger. As if the buffet lunch for UCT students wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough of a farewell, the children playing on the streets of Ocean View stopped to wave, dance and blow kisses to us as we returned the sweet goodbyes from our bus. The citizens of the town said they were happy to have us, but the pleasure was all ours. Many in this city, sadly, arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fortunate enough to have a roof over their heads at all. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not unreasonable to put even the most measly looking leftovers in a to-go box, for there are homeless people on the streets who graciously take anything a person is kind enough WRKDQGRYHU,WLVYHU\PXFKDĂ&#x20AC;UVW third and fourth-world country here. I had never heard of fourthworld until arriving in this city, and ever since it has been before my eyes. An odd and almost ironic feeling came over me as our program took buses to the wine country, known as Stollenbosh, for a dinner and passed by another township. It stretched for what seemed like an eternity. What struck me most was not the roofs made of scraps of tin that gleamed in the sunlight or the broken fences that left little room between the highway and the township neighborhood, but the children. There they were, playing on the side of the highway. There wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a Ă&#x20AC;HOG EXW WKHUH ZHUH JUDVV SDWFKHV sized for a great kickball game or soccer match. I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make out

the exact game underway, but I could feel their energy. Running, kicking their feet and laughing, I could feel their energy from the bus as we sped by. In that moment, the ball seemed like the best thing in the world. Such a simple thing was making the childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s day. I had already thought of Cape Town as a beautiful place, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s people and children are some of the most beautiful human beings I have ever seen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Capetownians,â&#x20AC;? as theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re called here, are as curious as they are knowledgeable. Being a woman ZKR GRHVQ¡W H[DFWO\ Ă&#x20AC;W LQ ZLWK WKH crowd here, a handful of people have asked why Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve chosen to study in South Africa of all places. When I tell them itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because I want to help children, they are ecstatic, which gets me even more excited to be here. For instance, a man on a train asked a group of us â&#x20AC;&#x153;Americanâ&#x20AC;? students what we were up to. Once we explained, he spoke highly of the United States and told us we had so much knowledge to share with the general person in South Africa. He asked us to spend just a few minutes with locals, get to know them and tell them what life is like at home and to encourage the children and teenagers that they can have the future they GUHDPRI7KHSRVLWLYLW\WKDWĂ RZV throughout this city is incredible and I only hope to add to that uplifting atmosphere. Although Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve only been here about a month now, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve learned so much before stepping foot in a UCT classroom. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve learned that people are genuine and just trying to get by. Cars stop for almost nothing and drive on the wrong side of the road (on the left side). Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve learned that baboons are not afraid of humans and they can and will take your bag of food for themselves. Elephants are surprisingly gentle and make for a slow yet calming ride. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve learned that most people use clothing lines to hang their clothes to dry and the stars are spectacular at night. Cheetahs purr when

you pet them and curl their tails up. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve learned a few words in Xhosa, or the â&#x20AC;&#x153;click languageâ&#x20AC;? from one of my roommates. Here, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m the one with the accent. The most valuable lesson Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve learned so far in South Africa is itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not so much about where you come from or what you went through, but rather where you are now and where you are going. , Ă HZ KDOIZD\ across the world, but this place has taken me much further in my life than that.

From military to matrimony: Student grows up fast KSC senior has more than just graduation on her mind this spring semester MORGAN MARKLEY

SENIOR REPORTER In college, some students are forced to grow up a little faster than others and in different ways. Cassie Stuart is not your average 21-yearold Keene State College seniorâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; she is also a wife. Most college students walk around FDPSXV ZLWKRXW D ULQJ RQ WKHLU OHIW Ă&#x20AC;QJHU but for some, college isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a time for hookups or boyfriends/girlfriends. According to CNN, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Out of 20,928 undergraduates surveyed by the National Center for Education Statistics in 2008, about 18 percent reported they were married.â&#x20AC;? Stuart is married to her husband, Ethan Stuart, who is enlisted in the army and will be leaving for Afghanistan for seven months. Stuart said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been engaged six months now, not that long, but we had already been engaged when we found out he was getting deployed and we decided we wanted to get married before he left for deployment.â&#x20AC;? Stuart said although the wedding may have been a surprise to some, wedding talk wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a new topic, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wanted to get married, we had been talking about it for over a year now since he left for basic training. He asked me right before it started if I would consider getting married and I said yes.â&#x20AC;? Winter break proved to be more than just an average break from school for Stuart. Stuart said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;He [Ethan] got leave over Christmas ... while he was home over Christmas we decided we would get married then. We got married the day after Christmas and he left two days later.â&#x20AC;? Stuart said she broke the news to her parents, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The day after Christmas we told our parents. We were like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Well weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going today.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; We had told them but I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if they ... thought it would really happen.â&#x20AC;? Stuart said her parents are excited for her, â&#x20AC;&#x153;My parents are happyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; they have known Ethan for so long, so many years.â&#x20AC;? Stuartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mom, Nancy Cote said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Initially I thought honestly they are too young, you know. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just so young, they have so many years ahead of them, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to grow and change; that was my initial thought.â&#x20AC;?

now are you know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s their life and they have to make decisions for themselves and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s their life to live and I just hope theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re happy and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m okay with it. I just want her [Cassie] to be happy and they have to make

their own choices in life and they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t base their choices on what other people think.â&#x20AC;? Stuart didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make a large announcement about the wedding. She said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I told my really close friends, but everyone else

kind of found out as a surprise.â&#x20AC;? One of Stuartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s close friends Danielle Strauss said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I totally understand why they had to rush into it given his deployment and everything so she had to mature pretty fast.â&#x20AC;?

In order to stay in contact with her husband during his deployment Stuart said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The bases have Wi-Fi so we both have iPhones so we can iMessage if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re allowed to use the Wi-Fi. If theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not allowed to use it then they have to wait for phone calls. They just wait in line. They get like a half hour on the computer or they get an allotted amount of time on the phone.â&#x20AC;? Stuart also added that, â&#x20AC;&#x153;It wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be like strictly letters.â&#x20AC;? Stuart said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m nervous about it [deployment], [be]cause it is a foreign country and we have had problems with them, but I know things have gotten a lot better over there, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m excited for him cause heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always wanted to join the army.â&#x20AC;? Stuart said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really excited about it so Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m excited for him I just try to think about it that way.â&#x20AC;? After Stuart graduates from KSC and her husband comes back from deployment, Stuart said they do have a plan, â&#x20AC;&#x153;When he gets back [from deployment] in the end of August ... Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be going down to where heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stationed in Kansas ... hopefully weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have a house on base set up by then so I can move stuff in so that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have a house to come home to.â&#x20AC;? Stuart also said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just excited to be together. Kansas isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the most exciting state, but I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mind it.â&#x20AC;? Stuart, who studies education at KSC, said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hopefully I can get a teaching job on base. It makes it a lot easier for when he takes leave time; I get leave time also.â&#x20AC;? But while her husband is gone, Stuart said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the crappiest part is he wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be here for graduation, but it keeps me busy being in school and doing stuff so I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always focus on it as much.â&#x20AC;? During the deployment Stuart will have a support system. Strauss said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;All I do is be there for her when she needs someone to talk to and she QHHGV VRPHRQH WR FRQĂ&#x20AC;GH LQ MXVW XQGHUVWDQGLQJQRMXGJPHQW,NQRZLW¡VGHĂ&#x20AC;QLWHO\ a scary situation to be in.â&#x20AC;?

EQUINOX STAFF With such unlimited Internet resources, 75 percent of 20 Keene State College students, informally surveyed, said they access their music through illegal downloads. But the simplicity of it all doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily scream, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re breaking the law!â&#x20AC;? With websites like goodmusicallday.com, datpiff.com and rapradar.com, one click will open a new song right in your iTunes. It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop there either. If these websites that promote new music donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have

the download, a few more clicks to the youtube-to-mp3-converter will do the same thing. 7RSXWLWSODLQO\\RXFDQHDVLO\Ă&#x20AC;QG\RXU new favorite song on YouTube, then google an mp3-converter site, paste the YouTube link, and yet again iTunes is tricked into thinking you just bought your way to your new workout playlist. Alex Beaudoin, KSC sophomore, said iTunes seems to be outdated. The music and video playing application used to be good to pre-order albums, but Beaudoin said a lot of websites leak albums early, leaving iTunes

out to dry. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At this point, I only use iTunes if I get a gift card for Christmas or something,â&#x20AC;? Beaudoin said. On another side of the spectrum, KSC Associate Music Professor James CheseEURXJK VDLG KH Ă&#x20AC;QGV D ORW RI KLV PXVLF through his students. Chesebrough said he most often uses Pandora or iTunes but student advice has recently led him to start using Spotify. A free Spotify account is made possible through advertisements. This music streaming service allows the user to browse by artist, album, record label, genre or even a

direct song search. Just hit play and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re on your way. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now, because the music is available online, students arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t buying CDs anymore,â&#x20AC;? Chesebrough said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can remember vinyl records and then eight-track, then cassettes, and then CDs. Each one of these things has changed technology.â&#x20AC;?

However, Ian Durling at the independently-owned music store Turn it Up! in

downtown Keene said the most popular type of music for young people coming into the store are newer bands like Florence and the Machine. Perhaps the students going into Turn it Up! are friends of Chesebrough, leaning toward the indie rock sounds of today. KSC junior, Kim Dixon, said the new generation of music that we are in today, where songs and albums are freely accessible, is the reason why nobody wants to pay for music anymore.

Rap artist Baba Brinkman presented â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Rap Guide to Evolutionâ&#x20AC;? in the Redfernâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Main Theatre on Feb. 5 for a crowd of both Keene State College students and curious Keene residents. Brinkman wore the clash of rap and evolution proudly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been rapping since I was 19, doing underground hip-hop albums and collaborations.â&#x20AC;? However, Brinkman said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not something I wouldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve just woken up in the morning and been like â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to write an album on Charles Darwin today.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Microbial Genomics professor Mark Pallen of Birmingham University, U.K. reached out to Brinkman with the idea after listening to Brinkmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s adaptation of â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Canterbury Tales.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;He [Pallen] wrote a book called â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Rough Guide to Evolution,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; so the rap guide concept was his idea. He said â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;You should write the rap complement to my bookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, which is a pretty open-minded [for a] biologist. â&#x20AC;Ś In his â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Rough Guide to Evolutionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; book he had a whole mini-chapter on pop culture representations of Darwin.

EQUINOX STAFF There is personality in every art piece. Through the various shapes, colors, sizes, and lighting--each piece is emphasized its own meaning which is derived from each and every personality in the room. The Carroll House will showcase the sculptures of the students in the Sculpture II class. Associate Professor of Art Lynn Richardson oversaw the projects

of the 12 students in the class. The sculptures went on display on Feb. 1 and will be in The Carroll House until Feb. 23. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They all had worked really hard on their projects, but also there was this big diversity in the media that they were using,â&#x20AC;?

Benedict XVI announced Monday that he would resign Feb. 28 - the first pontiff to do so in nearly 600 years. The decision sets the stage for a conclave to elect a new pope before the end of March.

either get you there or not get you there.â&#x20AC;? Head Track Coach, Pete Thomas explained, â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is an evolving situation for athletes who are close to qualifying for the championship part of the season, and people are trying to run faster, so either theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll perform better or improve their spots, or let others run by them and be left at home.â&#x20AC;? Thomas said that the NCAAs used to have an automatic standard where only a few athletes would qualify. The recent change, however, allows the top 15 athletes in each event in Division III to move on to Nationals, instead of meeting a certain time. So far, Janel Haggerty is ranked eighth nationally in D-III in the pentathlon. 0DJJLH)LWWHULVUDQNHGWKQDWLRQDOO\LQWKHDQG Ryan Widzgowski is 11th in the national rankings for the mile.

Fabian also commented on the challenges of swimmers to make a cut for nationals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The goal is to score points, and place well as a team, which has gotten really challenging to do because they have gotten very competitive. The kids really need to have talent, and need to be motivated to work for it on their own,â&#x20AC;? Fabian said. Hard work and dedication are the recipes for success in the pursuit of a trip to Nationals, and several Keene State Owls are showing they have what it takes to compete at that high level of competition.

New Orleans is where Tuohy grew up and went to high school with author Michael Lewis, who wrote â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Blind Side.â&#x20AC;? The book led to the movie, which depicted the Tuohysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; rewarding experience as Oherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s adoptive family. Actress Sandra Bullock, who starred as Sean Tuohyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife, Leigh Anne, owns a home in New Orleans. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And there are people that think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a coincidence,â&#x20AC;? Sean Tuohy said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;How stupid is that? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a huge sign in our garage that says: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We believe in miracles,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? he continued. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For other people, it may be hard to understand that. For us, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy.â&#x20AC;? It certainly seems like fate has given the Tuohys not just another measure of validation for the decision they made to nurture a child from a broken home, but also a platform to talk about their mission to help more kids. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To me, when I look at Michael, the only down side of it is, you sit there and go, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;If someone as immensely talented as Michael Oher, that society pretty much didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t value, almost falls through the cracks, can you imagine who gets left behind,â&#x20AC;?

You need it to go handin-hand if it can, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all capable of investing time.â&#x20AC;?

Oher is pleased his adoptive parents are getting another platform to disseminate an important message, even if he is a little weary of talking about his life in the context of a movie. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m tired of the movie,â&#x20AC;?

Bergeron leads Bruins 3-1 over Sabres Snedeker finally gets the win at Pebble JOHN WAWROW

ASSOCIATED PRESS Patrice Bergeron scored the goahead goal on a third-period power play in leading the hot-starting Boston Bruins to a 3-1 win over the Buffalo Sabres on Sunday night. Brad Marchand and Milan Lucic, into an empty net, also scored. Backup goalie Anton Khudobin made 25 saves in only his second start of the season. The Bruins (8-1-1) are off to the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best start to a season by earnLQJSRLQWVLQWKHLUĂ&#x20AC;UVWJDPHV The teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s previous best was 16 SRLQWV WKURXJK  JDPHV VHW IRXU times, the last in 1978-79, when they opened 7-1-2. Boston beat the only team thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defeated them this season, after the Sabres won 7-4 at Boston on Jan. 31. And the Bruins continued their roll following an extended break.

The Bruins have been off since a 2-1 win at Montreal on Wednesday, and had their home game against Tampa Bay on Saturday postponed due to a winter storm. Tyler Ennis scored for Buffalo, and Ryan Miller was solid in making 36 saves. Bergeronâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal came 28 seconds after Buffaloâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mike Weber began serving a delay-of-game penalty for shooting the puck over the glass in his own zone. The Bruins worked the puck back to the left point, where Chris Bourqueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s point shot hit a body in front. The puck took a hard carom off the end boards and dribbled directly to Bergeron in the left circle, from where he snapped a shot into the top right corner. Miller was otherwise outstanding in keeping the Sabres in it, while coming off a stellar 41-save outing in a 3-2 win at Long Island a night

The Bruins goalie had his big moments, too, though most of the Sabres shots he faced came from the outside. Khudobin got his blocker out to stop Staffordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sharp shot from the right circle 5 minutes in.

Rodrigue said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disappointing because most of the members of the ranking committee agree with me that this team is certainly good enough to deserve a spot in that tournament.â&#x20AC;? 2YHU WKH ODVW IRXU \HDUV WKH .6& 0HQ¡V 3URJUDP has shown great improvement, especially due to senior OHDGHUV DQG FDSWDLQV 3DWULFN 6XOOLYDQ DQG %RE )XOOHU With only four seniors on the roster, including goalie &DP*RXOGDQG'DYLG5RELFKHDXRQGHIHQVHWKHSOD\ersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; legacy in the program will be missed, Rodrigue commented.

With 16 underclassmen returning to the program next year, that statement holds credibility, as there will be only four open spots next season.

Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking about a group of girls that wants to be competitive and represent the college on the ice just as the menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team does so I think theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done a remarkable job so Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m really excited to see whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to happen next year with its growth.â&#x20AC;? Not many futures look brighter than the one of the KSC hockey programs. Only the coming years will be able to show the character participantsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; payoff in a program that has come to prove its excellence.

Remembering Marianoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mentor BRIAN SCHNEE

EQUINOX STAFF Everybody has a positive LQĂ XHQFH LQ WKHLU OLYHV VRPHRQH who inspires and motivates, and pushes them to achieve their best. Keene State College senior and member of the menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball team Anthony Mariano is no different. Mariano grew up in NauJDWXFN &RQQ WKH Ă&#x20AC;IWK PRVW SRSulated city in the state. Mariano is the sole male in his household. Growing up with three sisters and his mother Mary Jane, Anthonyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s IDWKHU Ă&#x20AC;JXUH OHIW KLV OLIH ZKHQ KH was just two years old. It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take long for another strong male Ă&#x20AC;JXUH WR DSSHDU LQ 0DULDQR¡V OLIH 8QIRUWXQDWHO\ WKDW PDOH Ă&#x20AC;JXUH Josh Ruccio, passed away a year ago. Ruccio, 35, died suddenly on Jan. 16, 2012 of unknown causes. The death rattled the town of NauJDWXFN $QG PRUH VSHFLĂ&#x20AC;FDOO\ LW rattled Anthony Mariano, who was a junior at the time. Anthony was in practice when the news broke, that his former coach, mentor, friend and most importantly â&#x20AC;&#x153;big EURWKHUÂľ Ă&#x20AC;JXUH KDG SDVVHG ´, looked at my phone after an early practice and had a text from my cousin,â&#x20AC;? Mariano said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I remember it like yesterday, it said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Ruccio passed away.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a really tough day, prob-

ably one of the hardest things I ever been through,â&#x20AC;? Mariano said. Josh Ruccio was a well-known man around town. He worked locally, coaching in the town at every youth level and even attended Naugatuck High School as a student-athlete, playing baseball and basketball. Ruccio was married to current Naugatuck High School Varsity Girlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Basketball Coach Jodie Ruccio. Anthony Marianoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s athletic endeavors began on the baseball diamond, where the journey started for Ruccio and 0DULDQR0DULDQRĂ&#x20AC;UVWPHW5XFFLR while trying out for a competitive baseball team during his middle school years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We developed a relationship right then, he ended XS SLFNLQJ PH Ă&#x20AC;UVW LQ WKH GUDIWÂľ Mariano said. While coaching the baseball team, Ruccio was also the freshmen basketball coach at the high school. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t so much into basketball at the time,â&#x20AC;? Mariano said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was always busting on me, telling me to play basketball. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t end up playing basketball until the eighth grade.â&#x20AC;? Marianoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s current coach, Rob Colbert said that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s uncommon to Ă&#x20AC;QG D SOD\HU ZKR VWDUWHG SOD\LQJ so late in his childhood. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nowadays itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very rare with the AAU scene how it is and the travel programs,â&#x20AC;?

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no surprise that the menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s swimming and diving teams at Keene State College received an A+ on this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s winter report card. At the NEISDA swimming championships, held on Feb. 8 through Feb. 10, the menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s swim team certainly proved their worth. According to CollegeSwimming.com, their performance at the NEISDA meet earned the KSC menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s swim team the number one spot on their Division-III top 25 poll. On top of a solid performance at the NEISDA meet, VHYHQ 2ZOV KDYH TXDOLĂ&#x20AC;HG IRU the National meet in Texas in March.

Among those swimmers are Austin Harris, James Black, Jared Hyde, Drew Ledwith, all of whom went last year, along with newcomers Shahar Resman, Cole Hogg and Greg Youngstrom. And it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t only the menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team that impressed swim fans at Keene State College this year. The womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s swimming and diving team won the Little East Conference championship, winning 13 of 16 events. The Owls scored 630 points at the meet, which is an all-time record for the Little East Conference championships. This was also the seventh consecutive LEC championship for the Lady Owls.

Expectations were high this season for the menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball team. A preseason LEC poll ranked them at number one. As the season progressed, the Owls dropped crucial Little East games to Rhode Island College and Eastern Connecticut State, both of whom are ranked above the Owls currently. But KSC senior Rashad Wright helped the Owls achieve a 15-8 record with just two games left to play in the season, against Eastern Connecticut and Rhode Island College. Wright averaged 11.1 points and 9 rebounds per game this season. The Owls also got a big spark from freshman Treâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Tipton. Tipton worked his way into the

starting lineup midway through the season. Although he only averaged 4.6 points per game, Tiptonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tenacious defense helped the Owls average 8.7 steals per game. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re ranked fourth in the league for steals per game. They also currently lead the Little East in points per game with 78.6, scoring 1,807 points in 23 games played. The team is sure to make the Little East Conference tournament, sitting in third place. They may not have home court advantage, but with a 9-2 record on the road, playing elsewhere may give the Owls the spark they need to make a deep run into the tournament.

Hockey season ends Keene State College athletics has the type of commitment that most athletes will abide to strictly over their time at KSC. If a program is not yet NCAA approved, the KSC menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s club hockey team is certainly making a case for attaining their goal in becoming a D-III program. Progress is not only being made on the ice, but off the ice as well in a season full of accomplishments, surprises and progress towards a bright future. The KSC club hockey team is bringing an end to the 2012-2013 season with hope for the coming future, even after posting a sub-par record with and an overall record of 7-11-2. Though, like every year, they face the looming graduation of seniors. These players are key components of their team A starting accomplishment this season is the weekend-long series they played against defending National Champions, Florida Gulf Coast University. Not only did they sweep the champs in a two-game series, but they also did it while

In an exciting day, the KSC womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s track team took the reigning champions, University of Southern Maine all the way to the last race.

Following in the strong distance footsteps of Andrea Walsh and others alike, senior Maggie Fitter has provided the spark for the Owls in the long races, such as the 1,000m race, which Fitter won at the LECs.

Expectations were not nearly as high for the Lady Owls this season. After graduating Meghan Farrell, Courtney Cirillo, Sara Laudano and Nikki Cote, the team was certainly searching for some leadership. Leadership is exactly what they got from their lone senior, Siobhan Carnell, who averaged 16.5 points per game. Ranking number 6 in the LEC preseason poll, the Lady Owls knew that this year was going to be a rebuilding year from the get go. Although the team did some major rebuilding, bringing in Kelsey Cognetta from William Patterson University halfway through the year, along with three other freshmen,

they still managed to notch nine wins thus far. 7KH\ PD\ QRW KDYH Ă&#x20AC;QLVKHG the season with the results they had hoped for, but it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t for lack of effort.

If anything, this team certainly has a bright future ahead of them. With three juniors on the team this year, Brianna McCain, Vicky Vitale and Carly Kiernan, there should be no shortage of leadership on the court for the Lady Owls next year.
