Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) is a surveillance system that has been seen in use more freveillance can seem like an invasion of privacy. According to vintechnology.com, since 1996, the United Kingdom has seen a rise in CCTV cameras, surveilling around 41 percent of public property with around 1.85 million cameras, and this was as of 2011. While America might not have quite as many eyes on them at all times, the average American is most likely caught on camera far more than he or she realizes. the invasion of privacy.

More actual convictions have been made though it seems, and I think that is important to consider in deciding whether you are for or against surveillance. As Americans, I think citizens should have some say in whether or not these systems are put into place before they actually are. People need to decide between feeling safer or having privacy in their neighborhoods.

Tips on how to tip

Commotion over children costumes

EMMA HAMILTON

Equinox Staff Many people budget out their money to pay bills and provide themselves what they need end of the week, but tipped workers cannot. Individuals in the service industry receive a very low hourly pay because they also receive tips. People who are working in the service industry should be paid the minimum hourly wage. According to US News, “The 4.3 million American workers who receive tips – mostly servers and bartenders – are excluded from federal minimum wage of $7.25, and instead earn as little as $2.13 an hour. This so-called “tipped minimum wage” has been frozen at $2.13 since 1991.” PBS reported, “More than four million American workers rely on tips to make a living, and bartenders.”

US News reported that more than 25 percent of people working in the restaurant industry are raising children and almost 90 percent are over the age of 20. Servers work extremely hard, usually for long hours, and are constantly on their feet to not always earn the pay they deserve. How well servers do in a night depends on various factors, such as how many tables are in out the door with a couple hundred dollars and others you won’t even make twenty. okay to leave nothing for exceptionally poor service, but only if you’re sure it’s the waiter’s fault.” Not every customer is going to know everything isn’t the server’s fault, resulting in assuming it was their fault, therefore leaving a poor tip. Taking responsibility when you personally mess up is the right thing to do, but you weren’t the one behind the line who made their steak well-done. Also, by making such a small wage, servers struggle when there is an economic downturn. They aren’t able to go to work and know they’ll make a certain amount of money after a certain amount of hours, no matter what. According to Raise the Minimum Wage, “Financially squeezed consumers often have no choice but to leave smaller tips. A higher tipped minimum wage would help cushion the impact

“ableist,” a princess labeled as “sexist” and a pirate labeled as “promoting rape culture.” The post was labeled “no candy for bigoted children” and asked parents that had kids dressed in these costumes to remove themselves from the property. I truly cannot believe some people have the nerve to post warnings like this on the internet. The post by “Gaia’s Dancing Indigo Children: Intergalactic,” read, “Dear parents, please teach your annoying little s--ts to be sensitive to others. Halloween should be fun for everyone and no one should be confronted with costumes that are comprised of microaggressions and cultural appropriation. If your children trigger others by knocking on their door and dehumanizing them, expect legal action.” First of all, the Facebook group that posted this is a group that publicly voices their opinions about Donald Trump and how they disagree with his racist and derogatory comments. So to post this “warning,” they are contradicting themselves on a whole other level. Who are they to tell children they can’t dress up as their favorite princess? Some kids dress up as their parents, or what they want to be when they grow up. Mommy might

these children up in these costumes. Most of the time children won’t go out on Halloween if they don’t like their costume. It’s usually children that choose their costumes, not their parents. Second, I’m pretty sure these children don’t pick out cer to the status of a mere object.” Also, calling a princess costume sexist is a judge of character because boys have the same opportunity to wear a princess costume as girls do. The world is changing. Girls and boys have the same opportunities to dress up for Halloween; it just depends on their idea of a gender role as well as their parents’ views. If “Halloween should be fun for everyone,” why are you taking away the fun? By saying these costumes are objectifying, racist and promoting rape culture, you are teaching children at a very young age that they are restricted. Personally, I didn’t learn about rape culture until I was 20 years old and in a Women’s and Gender Studies class. We should not be teaching little boys that being a pirate for Halloween means they’re probably going to grow up a rapist. It is completely outrageous to give this type of “warning” to children and parents on Halloween. It makes me sad that if I have a child, he or she will grow up in a world where everyone is “triggered.” If you think you’ll be triggered by a TV show, don’t watch it. Don’t listen to the radio if you’re sensitive to a current event. Whether it is a television show, a song lyric, or a Halloween costume, everyone has the ability to control what they see or hear. Don’t send your child out on Halloween if the majority of popular children’s costumes are going to trigger your emotions.

Academic and Career Advisor Beverly Behrmann recommends students start preparing for the job search and deciding on graduate school the summer between their junior and senior year. She emphasizes using keywords or phrases in resumes or cover letters to show employers the skill set you have is what they are looking for. “I think that is is a good idea to start looking at the jobs that are out there, even though you wouldn’t be applying to those jobs necessarily that early, it’s good to see what employers are looking for,” Behrmann said. “Otherwise, I would just encourage students over winter break [their senior year] to seriously start looking for jobs and applying for jobs.” The college recently hosted the Your Future Fair in the Spaulding Gym on-campus, allowing students to drop in and meet directly with potential employers for internship and employment opportunities.

Markarian is constantly on the lookout for career opportunities that may pop up within her internships. “[With the] companies that I intern for, I’ll always look to see if they have positions that they’re hiring for,” she said. “It’s just the one goal I’ve had throughout college is just to have a job when I graduate and have it set in stone.

On Common Core

On Common Core

Green Party

Stein said she would “end high stakes testing,” a position which suggests she would pursue a thorough overhaul of today’s test-dependent system of accountability. (TBS)

Libertarian Party

According to his website, “Gov. Johnson believes there is no role for the Federal Government in education. He would eliminate the federal Department of Education and return control to the state and local levels. He opposes Common Core and any other attempts to impose national standards and requirements on local schools, believing the key to restoring education excellence in ages. (TBS)

On School Choice Stein also said she would end “public school privatization,” a position which differentiates her from all three of her opponents, who have voiced varying degrees of support for charter and private schooling. (TBS)

On Higher Education As president, Stein would “abolish student debt to free a generation of Americans from debt servitude.” She would also “guarantee tuition-free, world-class public education from preschool through university.” (TBS)

KSCEQUINOX.COM

On School Choice Johnson is also a vocal advocate of “school choice,” a policy which he attempted in vain to implement as governor of New Mexico. According to his website, Johnson recognized that his policy would face overwhelming resistance from a powerful teachers’ union and a Democratic legislature, but he considered it important to challenge the status quo. (TBS)

On Higher Education “I do think ultimately it would be the end of traditional public schools and that would be for the better. Public schools are not going to go away, but they are going to embrace the innovation that would occur if students had a choice.” On the student debt crisis, Johnson backs a federal investby the federal government: “If there were no guaranteed government student loans, higher educa-

Career and Academic AdviCareer Week at Keene State sor Aaron Rock said a student ties for students to boost their resumes, speak with alumni and most recently put on the Your Future Fair event. students a little extra guidance and laid out potential opportunities. Many students have trouble with what they want to do with their majors after college, but the resources and events from Academic and Career Advising, along with students working closely with professors, is hoping to curb that confusion KSC senior biology major Casey Kimball is an example of a student who knew what she wanted to do and chose a path that felt right for her. “I did better in the sciences in [high school]. I was looking forward to science every day, and when I got here, I saw all of the labs and classrooms and just fell in love with it so instantaneously,” she said. This may not be the norm for all students, and even Kimball has changed her mind on her here. “Professor Jason Pellettieri [for] me on campus, and I do my research with him,” Kimball said. “[My favorite part of my major] is that it is always changing, [and] discoveries are constantly being made,” he said. There is always so much being twisted around,” Kimball said.

”....We work [with] just general resume prep, [mostly] cover letters since a lot of students have never written a professional cover letter, job search skills[and] discovering exploration of what your industry could be,” he said. KSC students not only have the career and academic advisors to reach out to, but can also look to their professors for guidance, support and even research opportunities. While a student may not know what he or she wants to do immediately after graduation, this does not mean they should shy away from seeking guidance. “We see a lot of students in majors that don’t have a direct correlation, but those are the majors we love seeing the most.,” Rock said. “You can do anything with a communication] degree [and] there is a lot more you can do with a Holocaust and Genocide degree than just go to grad school,” he said. “There is so much you can do with every degree here at Keene, so we enjoy seeing all students, but we don’t see any one major more than another,” Rock said.

EQUINOX STAFF Ingredients for Dough: 1 Packet of yeast 1 Tablespoon of Sugar 3 ½ Cups of Whole Wheat Flour 2 Tablespoons of Olive Oil ¾ Teaspoon of Salt 2 Tablespoons Flax Seed 2 Tablespoons Poppy Seeds

Ingredients for Topping: 1 Cup Butternut Squash, Diced 2 Cups Raw Spinach 1 Cup Goat Cheese (or to liking) 2 Tablespoons of Olive Oil 1 Sprig of Thyme 1 Sprig Rosemary Sprinkle of Dried Sage

Directions: First, preheat oven to 400 degrees fahrenheit. Next combine the yeast, sugar and warm water in a medium sized bowl, this will activate the yeast. seeds. Mix together by hand or with an electric mixer with a dough hook. Once it is mixed together, knead for about seven minutes, or until the dough feels smooth, but elastic. Be careful not to over knead the dough because it will become tough. If you have a machine with a dough hook, keep it on a low-medium speed. Start prepping your veggies while your dough rises. Start by cleaning and prepping your butternut squash. You’ll need to peel it and scoop the seeds out of the middle before dicing it. After dicing it, place it in the oven for about 15 minutes so that it is partially cooked before making the pizza. While you’re waiting, you can roll out the dough, drizzle the olive oil, and add the spinach, goat cheese, and spices. Top with the squash and cook for about 20 minutes, until the edges are golden brown and the middle is not longer doughy.

Garfunkel gets up close and personal ETHAN CHALMERS

Equinox Staff This Saturday, Oct. 15, Art Garfunkel was the featured performer at the Colonial Theatre in downtown Keene. Joined on the stage by guitarist Tab Garfunkel played to an enthralled audience waiting to hear a member of the renowned 1960s music duo Simon & Garfunkel. Alec Doyle, executive director of the Colonial Theatre, said, “As far as I can mance at the Colonial Theatre.” Since the music industry, Doyle remarked that the concert “will be somewhat of a nostalgic trip for the audience.” Doyle also said that hosting such a prominent artist at the Colonial Theatre “raises the water level for local artists and brings lots of people from far and wide to Keene, which helps to make the downtown vibrant.” The concert, “Art Garfunkel: In Close-Up”, featured renditions of famous Simon & Garfunkel songs such as “The Sound of Silence,” “Bridge Over Troubled Water” and “Scarborough Fair.” In addition to standard Simon & Garfunkel songs, Garfunkel also performed selections by Jimmy Webb, Randy Newman and George Gershwin. Garfunkel strolled onto the stage and said, “I can’t believe I’m still doing this. It’s addicting.” Throughout the concert, Garfunkel established a conversational rapport with the audience. In between song sets, Garfunkel shared some of his original prose poetry with the audience. An avid writer, Garfunkel remarked that he has signed a book deal with Alfred A. Knopf Publishing Company for an autobiography expected to be released later this year. Garfunkel also elaborated on some of his thoughts about music and performing. He said while he has been performing for many years “stage nerves... never go away.” Regarding his own musical compositions, Garfunkel said that “when you write the tune yourself, it’s your exact taste.” After his performance of the familiar “Scarborough Fair,” which sparked a standing ova-

tion, Garfunkel touched on the nostalgia of the concert with the remark: “Musicians live out of time, except our faces which fall.” During the second half of the concert, Garfunkel performed “Bridge Over Troubled Waters” after quipping that the “[audience] won’t let me leave town without performing it.” Following another standing ovation, Garfunkel concluded the performance with the simple statement, “goodnight Keene.” The audience devored his performance. Audience member from Rindge New Hampshire Rose Eochicchio, said the performance was “simply awesome, a step back into history.” Eochicchio said she particularly enjoyed the “very good, very personable stories about his buddy Paul [Simon].” She also said that she was impressed how “he [Garfunkel] tied it all up in the end of the concert.” Regarding Garfunkel’s personable manner throughout his performance, Eochicchio said, “[I] liked how he referred to Keene, showed that he wasn’t just going through the motions.” Other audience members Brenze and Kairn Goldstein from the Boston area lauded Garfunkel’s performance with a “thumbs up.” The Goldsteins said that they felt “very blessed to be in this venue [and] up close to the performance.” Throughout the season, the Colonial Theatre brings the art scene to the Keene community. Upcoming events include an appearance by comedian Brian Regan and a performance by virtuoso ukulele player Jake Shimabukuro.

Lead singer performs at “Rocktoberfest” on Saturday Oct. 16.

On Oct. 15, Keene State College’s campus was rocked by some of the college’s very own student bands at “Rocktoberfest.” KSC’s Student Activities Council (SAC) organized the event as an alternative to the usual fall concert the group would put on, which would normally include the luring of an artist or band to campus. “Rocktoberfest” is also a repackaged version of the event formerly known as “Battle of the Bands” which used to take place inside the Young Student Center, SAC concert coordinator Bethany Peterson said. This year, “Rocktoberfest” took place outside on Oya Hill where a crowd of mostly students were able to experience student rock bands compete, along with other festivities, such as hot apple cider, hot cocoa, tie-dye and henna present at various tables. Peterson played an important role in the event’s production, as while managing sound checks for each act throughout the day. On the decision of putting on “Rocktoberfest” as an alternative to SAC’s fall concert, Peterson said, “We actually decided to do this to give a little more support and love to our campus bands. We have seven bands and they’re all Keene State students, which is phenomenal. It’s something that SAC doesn’t usually do. We’ve never really done an event like this, and I think it’s really great for the bands to have their name out there, and also, this is replacing the fall concert, which is what we usually host. In that way, we're supporting local bands and we’re putting

more money towards our spring concert for an artist. It’s the way to have the best of both worlds. Instead of bringing two artists, we’re honoring local bands.” A special aspect of “Rocktoberfest” was the fact that it was held outside beneath the foliage on a crisp fall day. Guitarist for the band “Gray Haven,” Nick St Amour, said the aspect of the concert being outside gave the event a “festival type of feel to it,” which the band said they collectively enjoyed. “Gray Haven” is a student band started by bassist Joe Sansone and lead singer Ricky Pelchar during Now as seniors, the duo added St. Amour to play a guitar and Mike Holahan to play drums. The band said they hope to make music their career. Although the band, in its entirety, is newly organized, each member has been playing music all their lives and have experience performing in front of people. “We’ve been doing this for a while,” Sansone said. “We all have a lot of experience playing in front of people. We usually play in basements at night and we may be a little out of our element, but we’re so excited to just get out there and play and hopefully make a couple new fans.” Fellow bassist from the band “Rubber,” Marc Apesos said he enjoyed the events new look and what “Rocktoberfest” represents. “It’s the new face for ‘Battle of the Bands’ and it’s the perfect day for it,” Apesos said. Apesos added, “This is just an extension of the local music scene

AssociAted Press television Writer

The third hour features lighter fare: and Ethan Hawke on Tuesday, a segment

The fallout over Billy Bush’s lewd conversation with Donald Trump has left NBC’s “Today” show unexpectedly looking for help in its third hour and Bush pondering how to resurrect his career. Bush had been brought in only two months ago from “Access Hollywood” as “Today” looked for ways to bolster its 9 Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie, are the show’s heart and the wine-drenched

In this Sept. 19, 2014 file photo, Billy Bush arrives at the Operation Smile’s 2014 Smile Gala in Beverly Hills, Calif. NBC News has fired “Today” show host Billy Bush, who was caught on tape in a vulgar conversation about women with Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump before an “Access Hollywood” appearance. Bush was suspended at the morning show two days after contents of the 2005 tape were reported on Oct. 7. NBC and Bush’s representatives had been negotiating terms of his exit before Monday’s announcement.

Hoda Kotb has developed its own clear identity. Tamron Hall and Al Roker were Bush’s co-hosts; He came in this summer after Willie Geist moved to Sunday “Today” and Natalie Morales moved west. NBC wasn’t talking Tuesday about potential replacements. Harry Connick Jr., the musician who launched his own Tuesday. Actors Christian Slater and Eric Dane are booked as guest hosts later this week.

The audience for the third hour of “Today” is 68 percent female, no doubt a factor in NBC’s decision that Bush had no future there after wide dissemination of the “Access Hollywood” tape where Trump talked about groping women and Bush then asked an actress to give both men a hug. Bush’s exit settlement with NBC did not include a standard “no compete” clause, meaning Bush is free to seek employment elsewhere immediately. Some experts advised against that and suggested the settlement — Bush is widely believed to have received a sum of money from NBC because his contract with “Today” was new — would give him that luxury. “Time is certainly on his side,” said Tom Goodman, owner of the Manhattan

He did local radio in New Hampshire and Washington and hosted a short-lived “Let’s Make a Deal” remake for NBC in 2003. His years in Hollywood no doubt gave him a huge contact list, although there’s some question about its usefulness.

It will take more than three clicks of the heels to preserve the ruby slippers that whisked Dorothy back to Kansas at the end of “The Wizard of Oz.” The slippers, which for more than 30 years have been one of the most beloved items at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History, were crafted almost 80 years ago by the MGM Studios prop department. Like most movie props, they weren’t built to last. Now, the frayed shoes aren’t even ruby-colored anymore — they’re more like a dull auburn. On Monday, the Smithsonian asked the public to help save the slippers, launching a Kickstarter campaign to raise $300,000. In addition to keeping the shoes’ color from deteriorating further, the money will go toward a technologically advanced display case that will preserve them for future generations. The Smithsonian’s museums are federally funded, but the institution frequently solicits private and corporate contributions for major projects that its budget doesn’t cover. This is the Smithsonian’s second Kickstarter campaign. In 2015, the National Air and Space Museum raised $700,000 through the crowd-funding site to preserve the spacesuit that Neil Armstrong wore when he walked on the moon. “This particular pair of ruby slippers really belongs to the American people, and so we thought as we sought support that we would invite the public to join us on this journey to help preserve them for the next generation,” said Melinda Machado, a museum spokeswoman. If the Kickstarter campaign is successful, the slippers will be the second-most-researched item in the museum’s collection, behind Key to write “The Star-Spangled Banner,” said Richard Barden, the museum’s head of conservation. The shoes are the most recognizable prop for the beloved 1939 musical, their deep red hue dazzling audiences when the movie made its dramatic transition from black-and-white to Technicolor. They have been on near-constant display since they were anonymously donated to the museum in 1979. Their age is showing, and preserving them is more complicated than it might appear. The slipmaterials. The sequins are made of gelatin with a primitive plastic coating, and many are no longer exposure to light and moisture. The undersides of the sequins, or portions that did not have direct exposure to light, have retained more of their color. The shoes also include glass beads and red felt on the soles sound when Judy Garland wore them during dance sequences. The pair is also mismatched: One shoe is wider than the other, and there are other subtle differences in their shape. Each has Garland’s name written inside. The museum will research the ideal conditions for the various materials that make up the shoes. The new case is likely to contain a gas other than oxygen, with controls on temperature, humidity and barometric pressure, said Richard Barden, the museum’s head of conservation.

Bruins off to solid start CRAE MESSER

MAnAging executive editor After winning two out of three games on the road to start their season, the Boston Bruins will head home to host the New Jersey Devils on Thursday, October 20. Things weren’t looking good heading into the season as Bruins management failed to bring in any improvements to the team’s defensive corps, but the team managed to earn four out of a possible six points to open their season, thanks to the help of newcomers and returners alike. David Pastrnak has arguably been the team’s most valuable player at this point. The 20-year-old right winger seems to have bulked
