ODU STUDENT ARRESTED IN CONNECTION TO ROBBERIES By: David Bakhshaee News Editor A student at Old Dominion University, and member of Theta Chi fraternity, Matthew John Blaszak, was arrested on Saturday, Oct. 15 in connection to a string of robberies in the Larchmont neighborhood surrounding Old Dominion University. At approximately 3 a.m., officers responded to the 1000 block of James-

town Crescent, a street located in the surrounding Larchmont-Edgewater neighborhood of ODU. Officers saw a man walking between two houses, and a brief chase ensued. Officers quickly caught the man, who had stolen property on his person. Blaszak, a resident of the 7400 block of Hampton Boulevard, has been charged with two counts of burglary and two counts of grand larceny. In a telephone interview with the

Mace & Crown, Carlton Bennet, an ODU alumni and brother of Theta Chi fraternity, would not elaborate on the arrest. “It’s not an issue,” said Bennet. On Oct. 19, Blaszak made his first court appearance in front of a Norfolk judge. Police reported that Blaszack left a trail of blood in one of the houses on Jamestown Crescent. The arrest of Blaszak, brings up the debate that has been brewing throughout the campus community and surrounding residential neighborhoods regarding safety concerns. The Larchmont-Edgewater community recently hosted a safety forum regarding the increase in crime around the area, and it was made clear during the forum that there exist two separate and very dif-

Robbery at 49 Street and Killam Avenue

Cyber Security Gets Its Own Month ODU TEAMS UP WITH GOVERNOR By: William Channel Staff Writer Old Dominion University has joined in Governor Bob McDonnell’s statewide campaign to help make October Cyber Security Awareness Month. The plan is to help spread the word about cybercrime and the things to watch out for when surfing the internet. To help spread the word on cyber security; ODU has put up posters in various buildings that give a website a student can go to and find out more on the subject, and OCCS is bring awareness to the three P’s (password, phishing, and patching). According to James Tate, who works as a assistant administrator for the network security for the Computer Science area, one of the most common threats that a person comes across right now are phishing sites. These are sites that mimic a legitimate site such as a bank or Facebook login screen, and record all the information that the person puts down. They do this in order to be able to gain personal information on the person or financial information. “The threat of financial information being taken is the scariest thing,” Erin Fagan, a junior in the marine biology department, said. Having financial information stolen can be devastating. But phishing sites are not the only threat on the internet. Tate mentions that he is starting to see a new email scam going around that talk about a person starting a new business and looking for reviews for the site. Only when a person goes to the site it is field with all kinds of malware, which is

any kind of malicious software such as viruses. There are a number of steps that a person can take in order to help prevent security risks though. The two big things are having a strong password and staying up-to-date with the

By: Erin Robertson Staff Writer Police are searching for three suspects after they robbed two men near the corner of 49 Street and Killam Avenue on Oct. 13. The suspects are said to have driven up to the men in a silver Toyota, displayed a weapon and demanded money around 11:15 p.m. One of the victims was an ODU student. The robbery accounts for one of almost 300 violent crimes committed within a mile of the campus since May of this year. These violent crimes have even resulted in the death of an ODU student in his rental house near the school. Two ODU students, Jabari Dukes, and his friend Christine Sanlouis, live in off-campus housing near the scene of last week’s robbery. Both said that they “don’t feel as safe as they should.” This was highlighted recently when Jabari’s car was broken into near the intersection of 39 Street and Killam Avenue. Jabari alerted both campus and City of Norfolk police, however the case remains unsolved. Jabari said that he was “not pleased” with the areas security. In 2010, the U.S. Department of

Education’s Office of Postsecondary Education reported ODU as having 50 robberies and burglaries in on and off campus housing. 15 accounts of forcible sex offenses and 12 instances of aggravated assault were also included. Collectively, these events have led some students to question their safety as they live on or off campus. Sanlouis said she “feels comfortable walking to classes, but she doesn’t have to walk to the campus at night. If she does, she never walks alone.” On their website, the university has offered several safety tips for students that are recommended to ensure a safe campus environment. It is recommended that students walk on well-lit paths and streets, and walk with others, especially at night. Also, utilizing the campus Safe Ride and Escort Service program, available 5:30 p.m. to 2:30 a.m. is highly recommended. To use the program, students simply need to dial 683-3477 or use any of the emergency telephones or blue light call boxes. Police officers are also availasble to escort students after hours. Additional safety information can be found on the Old Dominion University’s Health and Safety website at http://www.odu.edu/ao/safety/.

SGA Address Monarchs, I am proud to announce that the Monarch Citizenship video is complete! It can be seen at www.facebook.com/monarchcitizenship . Be sure to like the page to get updates on activities related to the initiative, including the “REP ODU” shirts and other giveaways! As we all know, being a member of this community is a multidimensional experience and SGA does everything it can to be a voice in all policy-making decisions. One of the concerns we have been put on to relates to the changes that have occurred to catering services. In order to help alleviate these concerns, we have introduced legislation proposing that catering surveys be distributed. We hope that by providing an outlet for expressing concerns, ideas, and compliments, our students will be better served. Another area of the campus where SGA is making its mark is the Recreation and Wellness Advisory Board, where Ermias Nessibu, SGA Director for University Affairs, was selected chair of this committee. If you have any questions regarding the recreation center and its services please feel free to contact him at eness002@odu.edu. Student Government has also placed an emphasis on sustainability. Dyasha Arauz, SGA Director for Administrative Affairs, with members of her sustainability committee, recently attended a conference highlighting the best sustainable products and practices. If you have any questions or ideas on the subject please feel free to contact Dyasha at darau001@odu.edu In combination with these efforts, I am currently sitting on a committee which is drafting a new sustainable procurement policy, to ensure ODU is a green campus in regards to purchasing and contracting practices. In our continuing efforts to promote safety awareness, we participated in the Norfolk Safety Consortium and the topic of discussion was drugs and gang violence. Collin Rodino, SGA Director of Student Life is spearheading efforts to promote safety on and off campus. Please be sure to contact him with any questions or concerns at crodino@odu.edu .

Gaddafi is Dead By: Derek PaGe Staff Writer

Colonel Muammar Gaddafi, the tyrannical dictator of Libya, was killed Oct. 20, after National Transitional Council fighters overtook loyalist forces in the elusive ruler’s home city of Sirte. Libyan Prime Minister Mahmoud Jibril, confirmed in reports written by the forensic doctor who examined Gaddafi, that the overzealous nationalist leader was “taken out of a sewage pipe, was hit by a bullet in his right arm and when they put him in a truck he did not have any other inuries,” Jibril said. “When the car was moving it was caught in crossfire between the revolutionaries and Gaddafi forces in which he was hit by a bullet in the head.” President Obama shared his felicity regarding the pivotal moment, stating, “the enormous potential of the Libyan people was held back and terror was used as a political weapon. Today, we can definitively say that the Gaddafi regime has come to an end…One of the world’s longest serving dictators is no more.” Harry Merkin, a junior at Old Dominion University, humbly surmised, “The killing of Gaddafi is mainly a symbolic victory for the rebels. They already control the capital and most of the country, except for small pockets of loyalist forces.” “Gaddafi was already defeated, he just didn’t know it. The struggle isn’t over yet, just because he’s dead. The transitional government now has to deal with creating a functioning democracy in a country that has never known democracy, all the while hoping that Islamist’s do not infiltrate the democratic process or that a loyalist insurgency arises. The former is more likely, seeing that Gaddafi is dead, and now the loyalist have nothing to fight for,” said Merkin. The incident occurred when French war-

planes fired warning shots at a convoy transporting Gaddafi from the tumbled city of Sirte. The multi-dozen convoy was then sieged and destroyed by the NTC. Gaddafi was found soon after in a drain by a rebel fighter, reporting Gaddafi said, “Don’t shoot.” With the arrest and execution of Saddam Hussein back in 2006, and the subsequent struggling democracy of Iraq, only time will tell as to the rate and speed of a democratized Libya. “Just like Iraq’s attempt at a new democratic government after the killing of Saddam Hussein in 2006, I think it will be an extremely daunting task for the Libyan people to come together and create a new functional democratic government,” said Ryan Renaud, student at ODU. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton responded to the death of Gaddafi in surprise, with a simple, “wow.”

Libyans swarmed the streets of major cities rejoicing the end of a 42 year long reign of terror led by the unstable ruler. It was reported that riffles were raised in the air and fired, and motorists leaned on their horns in jubilation. “This is a momentous day in the history of Libya. The dark shadow of tyranny has been lifted,” said Obama. This is a moment the oppressed Libyan people have been anxiously awaiting since the overthrowing of Gaddafi in August.” While the death of Gaddafi is certainly a significant occurrence for Libya, it is but a stepping stone on the path of the struggle for democracy. Former presidential candidate and Senator John McCain said Gaddifi’s death is, “an end to the first phase of the Libyan revolution.” The Libyan people still have many political challenges to resolve. The NTC intends to announce “the liberation of the country” in the very near future in order to initiate democratic reforms leading to elections. Obama expressed his concern and support for the Libyan government, saying, “there will be difficult days ahead, but the United Sates, together with the international community, is committed to the Libyan people. You have won your revolution, and now we will be a partner as you forge a future that provides dignity, freedom, and opportunity.”

software patches. Eme Ejike, Enterprise System Security Officer/Administrator, says that passwords should be at least eight charters long, do not contain sequences, are not dictionary words or backward words, and contain a high variety of characters in upper and lower case. Tate explains that due to the fact that computer are getting faster and faster. It take practically no time for a program to run through all the normal possible words, so at this point in time it is best to have a password that is “gibberish.” This is what is recommended, but some people have issues with remembering these types of strong passwords. Dominique Burrell, a sophomore in the criminal justice department, said “I rather have a weak password that I can remember than a strong one I’m going to forget.” Trying to find a password that is strong and able to be remembered can be a task for some students. Linda St. Amant , a senior in the studio arts department, mentions how she always uses the password strength meter when making a password. Other ways to increase the protection of a computer is to continuously update the operating system and the browser whenever a new version comes out. This is because “these updates usually always address new security issues that have come out,” according to Tate. OCCS also provides free anti-virus downloads to all students, faculty, and staff. Another thing that is not as well known is using guest accounts instead of administrator accounts, which have less control over the operating system

We have our own cultures.” These two communities, the students making up ODU, and the Norfolk residents that make up the residential neighborhoods, discussed that a positive and safe relationship must be facilitated in order for the students and residents to coexist in a prosperous manner. “It’s unfortunate that he got himself in this situation. It does not reflect well on, the student body, university, and it ultimately hinders the process of bringing the communities together,” said Ferreira. Larchmont-Edgewater, a neighborhood located to the west of ODU, is one of the most prominent neighborhoods in the city of Norfolk, consisting of a potpourri of residents ranging

and will help prevent malware from accessing important areas of the operating system if it gets on the computer. Ejike states that using these non-administrator accounts well help prevent malware that is embedded within the browsers code from getting the required privilege that only an administrator account can give. Now of days not many people are worried about the access of information that is being shared over the internet on sites such as Facebook, or Twitter. Linda St. Amant said that “if someone were able to hack into my computer with everything I do, then I would be worried.” However, Ejike mentions that it might not be just the personal computer that can be at threat now. “The increased use of mobile devices is currently of concern to IT security,” Ejike states. “The limitations in control over the code content of these application is a growing concern.” At current, they are reviewing methods to help compensate for these problems and hope to “be a pioneer in this effort within the higher education community and currently have an internal steering committee evaluating requirements in our environment and the future trends in this sector.” Tate explains that the cyber criminals have to get smarter because the system security is getting tougher. “Security as we have come to realize, is a shared responsibility,” Ejike said. It relies not only on the people that make up the system security for the network, but also on the user being aware of potential threats, and how to deal with them.

from middle to upper class families, retirees, military personnel and a sprouting population of students. In a telephone interview with the Mace & Crown, Justin Brunelle, a Larchmont resident of four years and ODU alumni, said, “I didn’t know it was an ODU student. I was surprised that any robberies were taking place because it is normally a really safe neighborhood. I will continue to feel safe walking my dogs at night.” I hope it doesn’t affect the relationship between the students and residents,” said Brunelle. “His actions are not representative of the ODU student body.” “I don’t think this incident should stop the university and neighborhoods from working together. I think it was an isolated incident,” said Ferreira. Blaszak is scheduled to appear in court again on Nov. 21.

Students Pay Tribute to English Professor ComPileD By: steFFani DamBrUCh Contributing Writer

Einsteins Bros. Bagels Opens in New Learning Commons

By: Derek PaGe Staff Writer Located in the newly constructed Perry Library, Einstein Bros. Bagels is open for business. For many, the Perry Library’s newest addition was welcomed with open arms by hungry students. Despite complaints arising over the noise of construction, students are simply happy for the longawaited project to be done. “I didn’t think it [construction] was distracting at all. I’m sure everyone is excited about it finally being open,” says sophomore student Shaina Wesley. The Bagel Express has seen a significant number of patrons since its opening as hungry, sleep deprived students come in for a bagel and a fresh brewed cup of coffee. Einstein’s offers a variety of tasty options that are sure to suit your food folly. Bagel styles such as the sesame dip’d, cinnamon sugar, and the honey whole wheat can be topped with delicious cream cheese spreads like strawberry, jalapeno, and garden vegetable. The eatery also serves up wraps, sandwiches, salads, and a number of breakfast wraps and sandwiches as well. Also available are cookies and fruit. The coffee served at Einstein’s comes in an array of flavors from light and medium roasts to dark roasts, all of which are made with 100 percent Arabica beans. Some students like Devon Mizelle noted, “If they had egg and dairy alternatives, I’d be more interested.” UnfortuProfessor Jeffrey H. Richards, beloved professor in the English department and friend of the Old Dominion University community, passed away at the end of May. Cherished by all, he has been publically recognized by friends and fellow faculty members since the news of his passing reverberated throughout Hampton Roads and the greater community of scholars. Dr. Richards, the following represents a small tribute from those whose papers you thoughtfully graded, whose questions you gracefully and mischievously fielded, whose hopes and fears you calmly addressed, and in whom you gleefully ignited a passion for literature and living day in and day out—your students. “I was crazy about Dr. Richards. He was about my age, but in contrast, he was smart and knew a lot about literature. My 20-year-old classmates, mostly women, loved him. He would take any barely intelligible, stammered thing we would say and find something useful and important in it for the purpose of class discussion, but also to let the offerer know that they were essential to the conversation. He knew that some would never talk in class, but since they would text, they would also write in Blackboard, and so he would hear their voices there. He seemed interested in what everyone had to say. He was a good example of how to be a man or more generally, a human being. I’m a little slow of study

nately, Einstein’s does not cater to the small vegan population on campus. On Oct. 17, Einstein’s offered an exclusive deal for the first 50 students to come in offering free breakfast for a year. Each student was given a book of 55 coupons, enough for one free sandwich a week. The coupons could be used whenever and however they want. Students began occupying the learning commons around 5 p.m. said employees and freshman student Anna Gannon. Of the 51 students, only one couldn’t handle the wait, leaving sophomore student Megan Palko with the final book of coupons. “It was kind of a spur-of-the-moment thing with my friends and I.” “We started to get a little loopy from staying up all night, but in the end, free food is always worth it,” said Palko. Not only has the opening of Einstein’s allowed students a great venue to eat at, junior Will Dougherty thinks, “it’s great that we have a place to take a break from studying and grab a bite to eat without leaving the library.” Einstein’s also offered a few students the opportunity for employment. Anna Gannon says, “I love working here. Everyone is very friendly and it’s a great atmosphere to work in. It gets stressful at times, but when everyone pulls together as a team things aren’t so bad.” Einstein Bros. Bagels Express is open Monday through Thursday from 7:30 a.m. to 10 p.m., Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. and would like to have had him around another 20 years or so. He would have taught me to write a better appreciation of a dead teacher, who taught as though he were a friend.” —Gordon Dunnington “Dr. Richards seemed like a natural when it came to teaching. He had a great memory that he used to remember his students and he knew so much about his subjects that he could help answer almost any question. His caring attitude and strong sense of humor ushered us through class dialogues as we worked to complicate texts. I liked it when he ended class every day with “Alright, gang...” It made us feel important to each other.” —Kimberly Bell “I only had Dr. Richards for the recent seminar on Poe. I feel very fortunate to have been in his last class—what an awesome class! Dr. Richards would walk in and say, “Well, what did you think?” He was referring to our assigned readings. I always left class with more profound insights into something new and interesting. He made this Poe seminar come alive for me. I will always be grateful that I had such an encouraging brilliant teacher as Dr. Richards. In addition, I will never read any Poe without thinking kind thoughts of him and remembering that inspiring last seminar.” —Cheri Alford Champagne

AMERICAN HORROR STORY THE THING REVIEW

arts entertainment ODU’s Premier Brewing Club By: lateesha Gloston Staff Writer The Big Blue Brew Crew is a new club at ODU created by Jess Ourand for people who both enjoy beer and are interested in learning more about the art of beer. The club’s purpose is to learn about brewing and the

brewing business. The club also focuses on the selling, marketing, distributing, and the appreciation of beer. The Big Blue Brew Crew allows members to be able to connect with others who share their interest of beer and the brewing industry. Founder and ODU student Jess Ourand feels that ODU’s brew crew is special because “it would be great for fellow beer geeks to have means to share their passion for beer and that there is also a creative side of beer brewing that is often overlooked that needs to be explored.”

The club has faced its fair share of challenges, such as getting started because it is a school organization and its focus is on beer. However, the club is now fully recognized by the ODU administration. The advisor of the Big Blue Brew Crew, Dr. Eddie Hill, says, “We worked very hard to get it approved as a legitimate club, not to abuse alcohol, but for educational purposes and to understand the business of brewery.” The club is currently working on raising money for supplies such as club t-shirts, which will be $10, and to offset the cost of ingredients for future batches, group events, tastings, and brew kits. The crew plans to have fundraisers and wants to charge students as little as possible so that everyone with a passion for beer craft is able to join the Big Blue Brew Crew. Dues are currently $5 for the semester or $10 for the year, including fall semester and spring semester. The Big Blue Brew Crew is very excited to get started and welcomes new members. Big Blue Brew Crew member Jess Ourand said “Spread the word and let your friends know because we would love to have you here.” He also added, “There is no reason that this can’t be the most successful club on campus.” Meetings are held every first and third Thursday of the month in the Student Recreation Center Activity Lab, which is in room 1009, at 12:30 p.m. The club plans to have “after” meetings at The Birch Bar on Thursday evenings at 8p.m. to sample beers discussed in the Big Blue Brew Crew meetings. The Birch Bar is a bar that focuses on the craft of beer. It is located in the Ghent area at 1231 W. Olney Rd. in Norfolk. Currently, the club has plans to visit and take tours of breweries. The Big Blue Brew Crew also wants to learn the art of brewery hands-on by actually brewing beer. Additionally, the club will be working on having its on beer, a Pumpkin Ale special, by Thanksgiving. To see what the club is all about for yourself and share your own ideas, attend the next meeting on Thursday, Nov. 3. For more information, email info@bigbluebrewcrew. com.

Internships and Job Opportunities Come to ODU Campus

Andrew Matkins | Mace & Crown

By: JessiCa sCheCk Staff Writer

On Thursday Oct. 20, Old Dominion University held its Fall Career Fair. This semester, the Ted Center was teaming with employers from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. with corporations such as Chick-Fil-A, Channel 3 News, MAP Communications, Target, and many more. Students that were interested in attending registered via the Career Management Center’s website. Check-in tables provided registered students with a packet complete with a map of the booths, names of employers that were in attendance and a name tag. Other helpful services included a practice room to get rid of any nervous jitters, water, guides and tables to sit at to fill out any paperwork. The employers that were there were also excited to see so many students taking their future seriously and how much they were interested in working under many of the companies. “It’s great for us because we can hire interns and fight over them since they’re so eager to work,” a representative for Canon said. Many students were armed with questions to ask and plenty of skills to show off for the employers. “How many interns do you typically hire?” one student asked at a booth, as well as “what can I do to apply?” These questions among many others were able to be answered, putting students at ease with their futures. Andrew Matkins | Mace & Crown It’s hard enough finding a job or

internship, but the career fair made it easy, allowing students to go from business to business putting their names on the table and having employers right in reach. Seeing the great success of the career fairs on campus, the Career Management Center now is reaching out to students more. “Many students know us for finding jobs, but we also do well helping students find internships and federal work study opportunities,” said CMC representative Alice Jones. Lying ahead is the Health Sciences Career Fair on Nov. 14 from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the Health Sciences Building on campus. This will allow a more refined look at jobs, specifically for those majoring in anything related to health science. Staying on top of campus events such as these is a great leap towards achieving a part-time job or even a future career.

Paranormal Activity 3 Movie Review By: Gianina thomPson Staff Writer

Frightening demonic entities, taunting tension and jolts of petrifying screen shots-”Paranormal Activity” is back. “Paranormal Activity 3” hit theaters at midnight on Friday, Oct. 21. This third mystery and suspense filled sequel is just as mind-blowing and terrifying as its prequels, and it came just in time for Halloween. “Paranormal Activity 3” creates much more heightened suspense than the first two movies because of its different camera approach. The camera is mounted on an oscillating fan that pans slowly from left to right, then right to left. The panning is so slow that you are nearly biting your lips and coming up with guesses about what is going to happen. Things appear then disappear, come closer then farther, go up and then come down. The suspense is mind blowing. The idea of a harmless imaginary friend seems to go right out the window when strange things start to happen after Kristi, the youngest daughter, starts speaking to this imaginary “friend.” Then there is Toby who is the ghost who seems to naturally make us scream words out of a mouth we would dare not kiss our mother with. But more importantly, we learn his role into the screams from “Paranormal Activity 1” and 2 where the girls Kristi and Katie are all grown up. The success of the “Paranormal Activity” franchise comes from not following the trend of the one-in-a-million shot of being a victim, such as the “Saw” movies. Instead, these “oh-my-gosh” moments that the characters come across are experiences that may seem quite familiar to us, especially

Wednesday 10.26.2011 | MAcE & cROWN | B2

when we hear a bump or thump in the night. The most jaw-dropping scene in the movie is when Toby teaches Katie a “lesson” after taunting Kristi of his existence. You’ll never see it coming. The lurking of a white sheet in the movie is evident as well. No, the kids aren’t going trick-or-treating, but it seems Toby is playing tricks and treating our suspensions indefinitely. It seems that curiosity is the reason why most people get killed in horror films and we as the audience are yelling at the screen for the characters to get the heck out of dodge. The problem of curiosity comes into play when the oldest daughter Katie wants to play Bloody Mary. The scene was promoted on the previews with Katie and Kristi playing Bloody Mary, but in the movie it is Katie and Randy, who is a family friend and co-worker, who participated in the daring game. Many scenes that are promoted in the previews are not used in the theatrical version of the movie, but those scenes might be used for the DVD’s director’s cut version. “Paranormal Activity 3” plays off of conventional scare tactics like a loved one standing over your bed for several hours, or a strong wind blowing in the babysitter’s face, but it’s nothing but long strands of nothingness and odd musical chords which finds a way to suddenly shock the audience.. I suggest watching this movie during daybreak hours because everything you thought was natural becomes a paranormal activity from then on. The entity Toby seems to validate your fears by making his presence not only known, but seen and felt. Seeing is believing, but feeling is much more terrifying.

Feist “Metals” Album Review

A True Classic

OLD DOMINION MACE AND CROWN WED. 10/26

6.3” X 7”

The best way to describe Feist’s music is complex, intelligent and sophisticated pop. Out of her entire body of work, her latest album “Metals,” released on Oct. 4, best illustrates this idea. What makes this album so successful is the fact that Feist was able to harness all of the tools she possesses as a musician, singer and songwriter and compiles them together into such a well-rounded, complex, yet cohesive album. It has everything you would want from the singer. You have the soft ballads, similar to what you found and fell in love with on her earlier album, “Let It Die,” and then you have some amazing, soulful and bluesy songs that showcase her versatility, while still being able to appreciate her vocals, like in the opening track, “The Bad In Each Other.” This album is considerably different than its predecessors is the style of musicianship. There’s more of a raw feel that’s less polished and delicate than what we’ve previously heard from the 35-year-old Canadian American artist. The first half of the album really delivers this soulful sound that may have

been hinted at in the past, but now is prominent and driven home. “How Come You Never Go There” is a must-listen track, offering the wellrounded quality that is carried out in the album as a whole. Throughout the track, we get her signature soft, seemingly whispered vocals, along with mysterious yet catchy lyrics, and a subtly awesome partnership of guitar and horns.

Any fan of the artist will truly love this album. It bears the familiarity of the artist that we all love, but makes progress into one who is still growing and experimenting with more dangerous approaches and sounds.

American Horror Story is One to Fear American Horror Story Show Review By: emma neeDham Staff Writer The first television advertisements for FX’s new show, “American Horror Story,” left people in states of confusion and intrigue. FX didn’t seem to be advertising a show, but putting together strange clips, which included a man walking into a fireplace, a maid seducing a man, and someone dressed in a latex suit floating in the air. The only information given about “American Horror Story,” was that it was made by the creators of “Nip/Tuck,” and by the co-creators of “Glee.” It was described as “addictive,” “terrifying,” and “sexy.” Out of all of those descriptions, “addictive” is the most accurate. The show premiered on Oct. 5 and follows a family of three who decide to move across the country in order to start a new life. While looking for a place to live, they come across an old house they are instantly drawn to and also where they find out the previous owner committed murder-suicides.

After hearing this, the seemingly damaged daughter, Violet, who is played by Taissa Farmiga, immediately says, “we’ll take it.” Of course, right after they move in, they receive warnings from the neighbors and strange things start to happen around the house. The pilot episode was filled with disturbing images, strange characters and new elements that people have not yet seen on television. The show itself is definitely a horror, but is also beautiful, made with a unique vision involving stunning visuals, interesting camera angles and the way the camera moves to catch the tension of the situation. Another neat aspect is at the beginning of each episode, it starts with a horrific story that takes place in that same house many years before the present moment. The episode then jumps to the present and makes some sort of connection between the two, tying everything together within each episode. On top of all the strange occurrences going on in and around the house,

Batman:

Arkham City A bat, a bird, and a cat walk into a bar…

the family which the story centers on is extremely dysfunctional and emotional and seems to be tearing apart at the seams. “American Horror Story” is one big mystery with weird things constantly going on and is not for people who just want a simple show to watch. But, the show is for horror and suspense fans who like to guess about what is going to happen and who like to be surprised constantly. “American Horror Story” is a show which includes confusing mysteries, grim story lines, and a fantastic cast. Great performances by Dylan McDermott, Connie Britton, and Jessica Lange are also a part of this show. It is a very difficult challenge to make a horror television show, because there is a new episode every week that has to be kept interesting. Audiences are unpredictable and an interesting story must be created to reel in viewers. Creators of “American Horror Story” have flown over these obstacles and have figured out the perfect formula to make a great show. The viewers might

have no idea what the show is doing, but they will love it for just that reason. “American Horror Story” comes

By: steven knaUer Staff Writer “Batman: Arkham City” is the brand new video game based off of a comic book hero who we all know and love. The story and plot of this game is anything but uninteresting. Just imagine your local prison being so filled with criminals that the warden of said prison became mayor so he could zone off a part of your city to be one giant prison-city. The tone and art style of this game seem to be a mix of the 90s cartoon, complete with all the original voice actors, and the box office hit “The Dark Knight.” The enemies are eccentric and comic book-like with their crazy plots and development, but there are no punches pulled in the havoc they cause. The target audience for this game would most likely be young adults who grew up with the TV show. Many throwbacks to literary devices, such as characters, building etc, are strewn about in the background because they ran out of room to cram super villains into the story. For a game meant to be enjoyed as a 90s cartoon, this is a good thing. Arkham Asylum’s sequel is exactly what fans loved about the first one and then some. Instead of one Prison Island like the first game, you get to travel around a whole city littered with everything from thugs to iconic super villains. The combat is one of those great ideas compounded into one. Batman can now take down two or three enemies at a time using his counter attacks that fans mastered in the original game. This also means game studio Rocksteady is not afraid to throw more goons at you, giving players the pleasure of seeing Batman knock more heads around. Batman is given more gadgets this time around such as the Remote Electric Charge,

on FX, which is channel 44 at ODU, on Wednesdays from 10 to 11 p.m.

which can act as a stun gun or a tool for puzzles that need electricity, or the new smoke pellets, which allows Batman to escape from gun-toting pursuers. Nearly every gadget can now be used during combat in clever ways. A new use for the explosive spray is quickly spraying it as Batman cartwheels and sets it off mid-combat while an enemy steps over it. Similar to the first game, there is a challenge mode with competitive leader boards to compare with your friends. However, in this mode lies the one issue in the game: cheap DLC tricks. If the player buys this game from Gamestop, they get a few side missions with Catwoman and unlock her for challenge mode. If the player buys this game from Best Buy, they get the same, but for Robin. There is no way to get all three characters in this game, so a player must either miss out on Catwoman’s or Robin’s side-story. As enjoyable and good looking as this game is, this atrocity cannot be over looked. Gamers like their games and they typically want to play every bit of them. But how can they do that if they are sold 90 to 95 percent of the product? If this game was not top notch, this could be a serious issue, hindering the sales all together. It’s something that should change in the industry. Because of it, I would rate the game as an 8.5, when it would be in the nine to 10 range without this little “theft” involved. If able to overlook this, however, anybody remotely interested in “Batman” will have a great time with this game and have a hard time stopping themselves from beating up bad guys and uttering “I am the night” when they’re through.

Movie Offers the Same “Old” Thing By: roBBie Ciara Staff Writer “The Thing” is not a remake or prequel that will replace or condemn the original. In fact, it’s a polite homage to a great cult classic. Even if you’ve never seen John Carpenter’s “The Thing,” you most likely will know how the new version of the film is going to end. Movies featuring people trapped on an island, a planet, or a boat with an alien force, tend to end the same way. This is not to say that this is not a worthy prequel. The nods to the original are throughout the movie and director Heijningen does a fantastic job of this, including the reasons behind the axe stuck in the door from the original. The special effects are top notch, but the story itself falls short from the original. We never seem to care about the characters as much as we did with the original. Replacing Kurt Russell as the hero is the first obstacle. This film’s protagonist is Kate, who is played by Mary Elizabeth Winstead. She plays the calm, cool, collected, Ripley type paleontologist flown down to a Norwegian base in Antarctica to look at the strange “thing” they’ve found in the ice. The team opens up Pandora’s Box before they figure out it’s a disgusting shifting alien. It has tentacles and a teeth filled butt for a head.

Celebrating Nations and Discussing Issues in Africa By: meGan stamPer Staff Writer Africa Day is a celebration of culture rich in diversity, variety, and tradition. Presentations were set up in Webb Center during activity hour for each African country and island. Information about the geography, education, economics, people and government were included in the presentations. “Africa Day” at Old Dominion University is an event that was established in 2007 and has a strong following within the African and International community. Events are free to the public and a range of interests were presented throughout the day. There was music, costumes and dancing that inspired a festive energy in the North Mall of Webb Center. Music from the disc jockey was infectious, mixing traditional African melodies with popular beats. 172 million people in the world have been murdered by genocide. In the film “Flowers of Rwanda,” a packed room of students and faculty members watched brief interviews and footage from villages where losing a family member or friend was regular. The film used the 1994 genocide attempt in Rwanda as an example of the many hate crimes that were committed in Africa. There was then a presentation and discussion about conflict resolution. The discussion touched on how to reach a win/win resolution to conflict. Ethiopian native Dr. Berhanu Mengistu and conflict resolution specialist Nina Frola Joyner spoke on the most productive ways to resolve conflict internationally as well as domestically. The discussion was informative and the testimonies were inspiring. “Many Voices in the Horn of Africa” was a discussion concerning the nations in what is called the “horn” of Africa, which borders the gulf of Italy. Issues were discussed such as piracy and the creation of South Sudan. In South Sudan, issues such as civil war, food shortage and drought were discussed.

A South Sudanese man stated that his friends and family in South Sudan hope their new nation to turn into the United States overnight, to which he said “It took America 400 years.” Victoria Collins, who is writing her Ph.D. thesis on the Somalia pirates, discussed the core problem with the pirates. The evening reception included a short speech by Old Dominion University’s President John Broderick, where he spoke highly of the university’s diversity. Broderick said, “If all we do is talk about diversity, then we gain nothing,” as he went on to speak about the importance of interaction between the different cultures on campus. Alexandra Solymar, who wrote about technology helping African women to succeed and overcome prejudice, won the essay contest. A local African restaurant in Virginia Beach catered the banquet style African dinner. The rest of the program was a collection of dance, music, art and fashion from different parts of the continent. The program also included a presentation by the United States’ Miss. Ghana who started a program called The Bright Foundation. The Bright Foundation is collecting school supplies and books to send to the children of Ghana. So far they have raised over 1000 books. The foundation can be accessed by www.Facebook. com/bright143 or “brightinfo” on twitter. In South Africa the equivalent of a senior in high school will have a fifth grade reading level. 75 percent of the money that is used for education will go to teachers, staff and personnel. There is a great need for sanitary supplies for the bathrooms and the girls. The bathrooms have no running water, soap, toilet paper, paper towels or garbage cans. Girls cannot attend school while on their menstrual cycle because they do not have proper sanitary supplies. Donating only $1 will provide a girl with five tampons and the entire girls’ bathroom renovation will cost approximately $1,000, but anything helps. You can donate or learn more by contacting Mandy Sokolowsky at Asok004@odu.edu.

It’s enjoyably gross and steals every scene it’s in. It also has the ability to replicate any human form. Our hero Kate is intelligently written, and has the brains and fire-power to survive. The film moves at a great pace that allows the audience not to become easily bored, but the pace sacrifices the substance in order to achieve it. Movies like “Aliens” and “The Thing” have casts that we genuinely want to see live and mourn when we see them get picked off. You barely know the characters before they are devoured by the alien with an attitude. However, the movie, like the original, thrives on its paranoia. Is it the Norwegian “The Thing,” or the American? Is it the dog or the lead scientist? Could it be all of them? There are also several plot holes that “The Thing” enthusiasts will ask from a prequel but never get. What is the alien’s motive? Is it trying to take over the planet or escape from the planet? Perhaps before you view the movie you shouldn’t think too hard like most science fiction fans, or you may hurt yourself. It’s recommended that you stay and watch the credits as the film has a 30 second clip which leads right into the first scene of the original, complete with the sled dog and all. As prequels go, this is a solid fall treat, but unfortunately, it just seems more like watching a movie we’ve seen before, so much so, they never even considered changing the title.

Beats, Rhymes, and Fights? By: martin tUCker Senior Writer Michael Rapaport’s controversial documentary “Beats, Rhymes, and Life: The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest” is finally available to the supportive public who couldn’t make it to the Sundance Awards, Art House Theaters, or the Naro. Released on Oct. 23, this documentary covers the four members Kamaal “Q-Tip” Fareed, Ali Shaheed Muhammed, Malik “Phife Dawg” Taylor and Jarobi White, and the intricate details behind their impressive history as one of the greatest hip-hop groups of all time. Some of the controversy of this film and story of the film itself seems to be anchored around an apparent neverending conflict between Q-Tip and Phife Dawg. It falls along the lines of the average conflicts within any fairly successful group, which is jealousy, entitlement and the stress any business relationship can put on a friendship. Rapaport uses testimonials, on location interviews, borrowed footage and concert footage to paint A Tribe Called Quest as a great hip-hop group garnering unanimous respect from fellow artists and fans alike. Some drawbacks of this movie are that there’s very little mention of members J. Dilla and Consequence, Beats, Rhymes, and Life aren’t dissected nearly as much as they should be. Rapaport seemed to figure since Tribe fans would already know every detail that there is to know about the

albums that it was more important to track their relationships instead. Rapaport does make good use of testimonials as the documentary features the likes of Common, Pharrell Williams, who is probably Tribe’s biggest Fan, Black Thought of the Roots, Monie Love, DJ Red Alert, ?uestlove, Beastie Boys, De La Soul and many others. They all express funny anecdotes, gratitude, and inspiration. Rapaport has stated that his purpose in doing this movie was to answer the question, “Will A Tribe Called Quest make more music?” The film ends leaving you to make your own decisions. This film is more than decent for a hip-hop documentary. It is similar to Tupac’s Resurrection and the unattainable hip-hop documentary perfection, Style Wars.

Old Dominion

Dominates CAA Rival JMU Andrew Matkins | Mace & Crown

By: kathryne mason Distribution Manager With Friday’s win over James Madison, Old Dominion officially clinched the top seed in the upcoming Colonial Athletic Association tournament. The Lady Monarchs scored a season high seven goals and junior goalkeeper Devon Seifert tallied her sixteenth win for the season. With the win for the Lady Monarchs and a loss for Hofstra, Old Dominion will have the privilege of hosting the CAA tournament. The Lady Monarchs are 6-0 overall in CAA action. JMU came out charging with energy at the start of the game and it proved to pay off four minutes in. JMU was awarded their first of two corners and they didn’t hesitate to capitalize on it. With a shot from the top of the circle, No. 3 Lindsay Cutchins deflected the ball off her stick into the back of the goal to put the Lady Dukes up 1-0. A sudden hush quickly came over the 200-plus crowd of specta-

tors as ODU trailed for only the third time in the season. It took a while for the Lady Monarch offense to get a jump, but once Senior Rebecca Condie scored on a penalty corner to tie the game up, there was no looking back. Condie would score again in the second half to put the Lady Monarchs up by four. Midfielder Stephanie Kratzer, who had a career high three assists, would get the assist on both of Condie’s goals. Less than five minutes later, Forward Maarje van Rijswijk dribbled the ball along the right baseline somehow finding the weak spot in Dukes’ defense and scored, giving Rijswijk an unassisted goal and ODU their first lead. Soon enough, Katie Nearhouse scored her fifth goal of the season, with the assist from Kratzer, giving the Lady Monarchs a comfortable two goal lead going into halftime. Coming out of halftime, the Lady Dukes coaching staff tried to change the pace by taking out their starting keeper Margo Savage and replacing her with sophomore keeper Stephanie Tarafas. This

move may have hurt the Dukes more than helping them. Wanting to capitalize on the Lady Dukes mistakes, Old Dominion scored three goals within a time span of six minutes. All three goals came from three different Lady Monarchs: No. 23 Kelsey Smither, Condie, and van Rijswijk. With a little under 10 minutes to go, the Lititz, PA native Kathryn Kirk would score to seal the Lady Monarchs victory. Old Dominion outshot James Madison 15-3 with four shots coming from senior Emma Batten, and the Lady Monarchs were given eight penalty corners to the Dukes’ two. Five of the seven Lady Monarch goals were from penalty corners, with three goals being unassisted. With the win, Old Dominion (16-1) improved their conference record to 6-0. JMU (6-9) falls to2-4 in CAA action. CAA tournament action will be from Nov. 3 to Nov. 6.

Andrew

Smith:

ODU Wins Seventh Straight Comfortably 4-1

A True Team Player

Smith’s patience pays off By: stePhen GoWen Staff Writer It’s repeated constantly in the world of sports to never give up. It’s pounded in your head over and over from coaches, teammates and parents. Many players shrug it off as just another meaningless piece of coach’s banter, but for Andrew Smith, a defender on the men’s soccer team, this piece of banter was something he held onto and used as motivation during his time here at Old Dominion. A four-year high school starter out of Brick, New Jersey, Smith was used to being the big fish in the pond and playing in every game. “I was a four-year starter and played in every game,” Smith said. “I never missed a high school game. We made it to states for the first time in about twenty years during my senior year and it was pretty cool knowing I made a big impact in my school’s history.” Playing all of those games earned Smith First Team All-Division, AllConference, All-Shore and All-South honors and caught the eye of the recruiters here at Old Dominion as well as other schools. The decision on where he would play was an easy one. “Well I’m from the Jersey Shore, so I loved the beach and ODU was really close to the beach and coach Dawson was a great recruiter,” Smith said. “I just fell in love with ODU and I still love it.” The college playing experience however, would turn out to be much different than that of high school for Smith, who had to make the leap from being a star to waiting for his chance to shine. “The first few years were tough, as a freshman it’s always tough, you’re 18 playing against 22 year olds and older guys who are more fit than you,” Smith said. “I redshirted my freshman year and didn’t get a lot of playing time my sophomore or junior year. But I had to stay patient and keep working hard.” That patient and hardworking attitude started to pay off for Smith who ended last season starting for the Monarchs in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. This chance to start and prove himself led to a boost in confi-

dence that he carried into this season. “I felt like the coaching staff had a lot more trust in me, so coming into this season, I had more trust in myself and was more confident in myself,” Smith said. “I stayed positive and worked harder each day.” Smith saw the culmination of his hard work and perseverance come to fruition this season for the Monarchs where he has started the last seven games, games that the Monarchs have all won. The news that he would start came as somewhat of a surprise to Smith, but he felt that he was ready. “I was excited and ready to prove myself. I think they saw me working hard in training and playing well. They thought that I would help the back four a lot and play well on the line.” Though he is excited to start and feels like he brings a lot to the team, Smith knows it does take a team effort to be successful and knows that his teammates play a huge role in his success “Victor [Franco] is one of the best keepers I’ve ever played with,” Smith said. “And Oaksie [Ryan Oaks], [Alex] DeJohn, and Tommy [Webb] are such a solid back three and I trust them a hundred percent. I know that if I make a mistake that they’ll have my back and it feels good.” Smith feels he has made an impact and brings a lot to his team, a sentiment shared by one of his teammates and close friends, Alex DeJohn. “Drew has stepped up and played well at left back,” Dejohn said. “He brings a lot of veteran experience and has been here for four years. He never lets you down and works really hard.” With the support of his teammates and coaches, and the level at which his team and him have played, Smith feels like the Monarchs can go far. “Since the beginning of the season our goal has been to win the CAA, which would give us an automatic bid into the tournament,” Smith said. “I can see us doing that and making it far into the tournament.” If he keeps the same attitude he has now, and the Monarchs continue to play at the level they’ve played, it won’t be long before those goals are realized.

Monarchs improve to 11-2 with resounding victory By: Jake UllriCh Sports Assistant When the Old Dominion men’s soccer team plays their best, there are not a lot of teams in the conference, let alone the nation, who can compete with them. Saturday night, the Monarchs played their best. Yannick Smith, Chris Harmon, Alex Vaughn and Gideon Asante all scored for the Monarchs, who comfortably beat the Hofstra Pride 4-1. The team combined brilliantly and put on a wonderful show for the 510 in attendance. “Very happy, I thought we played well tonight, particularly in the first half,” coach Dawson said. “Little fortunate to get the first goal. Very pleased. Obviously would have like the clean sheet, but then I’m getting a bit greedy.” It should come as no surprise who scored the first goal for the Monarchs. Yannick Smith ran onto a Tim Hopkinson long ball, and after a terrible miscue by the defender and goalkeeper, Smith tapped the ball into an empty net. “[The goal was] huge. I think if we go in at nil-nil it’s a bit of a dodgy game,” Dawson said. “We’re a team that if we get the first goal and you have to chase us, you’re in trouble.” It was Smith’s fifteenth goal of the season, a target he set at the beginning of the season. He has now scored in six straight games. “It feels great right now, but I know it could end at any moment,” Smith said. “But its not just me, it’s the whole team. I mean we’re top of the country with goals per game, so everybody is feeling it right now.” The Monarchs walked into the locker rooms at halftime with a 1-0 lead, but the difference of class between the two teams was much larger. The Monarchs played their game to a tee and came out in the second half ready to increase their lead. It didn’t take long and if the first goal was a bit of luck, the second was all class. A wonderful combination of play between Vaughn, Harmon and Tim Hopkinson resulted in a perfect cross and tap-in finish for Harmon. ‘Those are the goals we want to score,” Harmon said. “Ev-

eryone not taking multiple touches, passing it through the defense. Combination play, everyone touching it, it’s fun.” While Harmon provided the finishing touch, it was sophomore Vaughn who orchestrated the move. He was given his chance to get his name on the score sheet in the 72 minute and didn’t fail. After Smith’s shot was saved well by the goalkeeper, Vaughn found himself left alone for a wide-open finish. It was his second goal of the season. Vaughn, who was instrumental in last season’s success, had a bit of a rocky start to the season, but he was seemed to since find his form. “Vaughnies back,” Dawson said. “We all knew he was a great player. He did very well tonight and that’s a big time player back in the mix.” Vaughn wasn’t the only midfielder to have a fantastic match, Jason Gaylord also excelled. After being moved from left back to a holding midfield position, Gaylord has been assigned the role of disrupting the opposition’s attack as much as possible. He plays the enforcer, perfectly complimenting his teammate’s skillfulness. “I thought Jason was terrific,” Dawson said. “A couple games back to back now he’s been the back bone. He’s been fantastic. He’s going to win a lot of balls in the midfield.” Hofstra began to pile players forward and found the back of the net in the 83 minute when Heidar Emilsson struck brilliantly from 20 yards out. The Monarchs have been making a habit of giving up late goals, but Asante made sure of the three points only two minutes later. As Hofstra threw men up, they left their defense weak and Asante punished them when he beat the defender to the ball and perfectly chipped the ball over Hofstra’s goalkeeper for the final goal of the night. The Monarchs continue to roll and have an important match-up Wednesday with co-leaders James Madison for the sole possession of top of the tables in the CAA. The team walked off smiling, pleased with their performance, but knowing there is still a long road ahead of them to complete their goal. Hopkinson found the perfect term to describe the team’s current success. “Just balling, straight up balling.”

Back To The Hardwood Clean Shaven: Pre-season Preview of the Monarch Men’s Basketball Team By: mattheW mCCraCken Sports Editor The right hand of Butler’s Matt Howard knocked Old Dominion, CAA champions and ninth seed of the NCAA Tournament, out of the Madness of March last season. Tipping in a bucket after the ball ricocheted off the backboard, Howard and the Bulldogs went on to lose in the NCAA Finals against the University of Connecticut. This season is a new year for the Monarchs. They lose three of the starters to graduation in Darius James, Ben Finney, and Frank Hassell. Hassell, an ALL-CAA selection his senior year, averaged 15.1 ppg and 9.4 rpg, pounding down low for the Monarchs. James, the point guard and leader of the team, averaged 7 ppg and 3.2 apg. Finney, the heart and soul of the Monarchs, averaged 9.2 ppg while helping on the boards with 6.3 rpg. “Every year is different. Even when we have returning players, we build a team again,” Monarch’s head coach Blaine Taylor said. “We are putting the pieces of the puzzle together. It’s exciting, invigorating. It’s fun for me to have such a formative group and be molding it into what were gonna be.” The Monarchs return two starters in senior Chris Cooper and redshirt senior Kent Bazemore. Bazemore was second team AllCAA and CAA Defensive Player of the Year averaging 12.3 ppg, 5.1 rpg and 2.2 steals per game. Cooper, the 6’9” beast down low, will take a more vital role in grabbing defensive boards due to the loss of Hassell. Old Dominion also returns experience from their bench in senior guards Marquel De Lancey and Trian Iliadis, and redshirt junior forward Nick Wright. “There’s some experience in Marquel [De Lancey], Trian [Iliadis], and Nick [Wright] that need to step forward in a different way,” Taylor said, “There’s also some guys who have observed in Anton [Larson], Dimitri [Batten], Richard [Ross], and Donte [Hill].” While Batten and Ross redshirted, Hill is a sophomore transfer from Clemson who played locally in high school at Norfolk Collegiate, where he was All-State and Tidewater Conference Player of the Year. “Then there are the guys who are brand new, just got off the turnip truck,” Taylor said. New faces for the Monarch’s squad include freshman Breony

Key from Phoebus High School in Hampton, VA, and freshman forwards Nayquann Mitchell and Jason Pimentel. The Monarchs have always been a team that relies on their defensive intensity to produce offensive success. With five players returning with experience in being a Monarch defender, coach Taylor instills the aggressive mindset into the younger players. Conducting a five-on-five drill at practice where the defense must play through the entire 35-second shot clock, the Monarchs learn to get to the ball, stay in an athletic position and play until the whistle. “We start a game plan with defensive matchups and defensive sequences,” Taylor said, “We’ve got half of our team that has never really played in a game, so we just have a lot of teaching to do about how we defend.” Winning back to back CAA championships, Old Dominion has established a winning mentality in their men’s basketball program. Coach Taylor holds the most wins as a coach in ODU Men’s Basketball history with a career record of 215-110. Even with losing three of their key offensive players, coach Taylor is not worried whose hands the game will rely on in a close game. The Monarchs believe a team that is successful is one that has a lot of different players that can make plays at the end of the game. “I never thought a team was going to be real good if it was always one guy that took the shot,” Taylor said. “We’ve won more games with tip-ins than one guy taking a shot.” A group of voters consisting of CAA coaches and media relation directors and members feel differently about the amount of success the Monarchs will have in the upcoming season. In a pre-season poll, the Monarchs were picked to finish fourth in the CAA behind Drexel, George Mason and VCU. “It’s not where you are picked, it is where you finish,” Taylor said, “Everybody thought the Detroit Lions were going to be awful, where are they right now?” The Monarchs schedule consists of seven teams who were in the 2010 NCAA tournament field, including two Final Four squads in Kentucky and CAA Rival VCU. Other tough opponents include CAA rival George Mason, Missouri, Penn State, Richmond and Long Island. “Hey, we got new faces, and got a tough schedule. We’ll take a learning curve lesson once in a while as we go, but those will pay dividends later on,” Taylor said.

Confident words from a coach who typically is given the toughest schedule in the Colonial Athletic Association every year. Despite a heartbreaking end to their season last year and losses on both sides of the court, goals for the Monarchs stay the same CAA championship and NCAA Tournament success. Being a part of the March Madness tournament the past two years, it is now more than just being a part of it, but about being successful in it Many thought coach Taylor shaved his beloved mustache that flowed throughout the TED in seasons past due to superstition. Taylor corrected these assumptions: “I wanted to fit in with the student body. I needed to look younger; needed to make sure my student id was still intact.” First glance of the 2011-2012 Monarchs will take place at the TED on Oct. 29 at 4 p.m. for their blue-and-white scrimmage.

Not 100 Percent, 110 Percent

Lady Monarchs Get Ready for Season with New Head Coach

By: Ben DeCoWski Senior Writer The Lady Monarchs have a new leader of their team and she goes by the name of Karen Barefoot. Coach Barefoot comes to Old Dominion University as a highly decorated head coach, she has won two National Coach of the Year awards and has had 10 winning seasons in her 13 year career as a coach. “I’m very excited to be able to coach, you know, at a place I think is one of the premier pro-

grams in the country with the best fans,” said coach Barefoot. Coach Barefoot is very familiar with the area and ODU itself. She graduated from Christopher Newport in 1995 and served as an assistant coach for the Lady Monarchs from 2005 to 2008. “I’m a Virginia girl so I bleed blue, I really do,” coach Barefoot said. “I just really was raised watching Old Dominion basketball my entire life and really respected, you know, that the first Final Four was in Norfolk, Virginia.” Coach Barefoot left to become the head coach

at Elon University in 2008, but not before ODU left its mark on her. On March 25, 2008 the fifth seeded Lady Monarchs took on the fourth seeded Virginia Cavaliers in the NCAA Tournament and beat them 88 to 85 in overtime. “I remember looking around and seeing the crowd’s reaction and the excitement of this community and I just, I think I had a moment where, ‘wow I would love to be able to just experience that as a head coach,’” coach Barefoot said.. Three years later Coach Barefoot is getting that opportunity. “When you’re here and you get a chance to really interact with the fans and the community it’s just, there’s no other like that out there I don’t think,” coach Barefoot said. Barefoot was, “… amazed with the support” she received after she was hired on June 8 of this past summer.

The arrival of coach Barefoot also marks the end of the Wendy Larry era. Coach Larry was an extremely influential figure in the area as she coached the Lady Monarchs for 24 years and led the team to 559 wins. Coach Larry stepped down from her position at the end of last season, which opened the door for coach Barefoot. “I think it’s an honor, but at the same time I think it’s my purpose in life. I love teaching and that’s what I want to continue to do,” coach Barefoot said. “I want to make her proud and I want to make our fans proud, I definitely want to make our administration proud.” Making the transition from coach Larry to coach Barefoot after 24 years may seem like a tough thing to do, but Barefoot’s past experience with ODU and the community has helped. continued on C4

Wednesday 10.26.2011 | MAcE & cROWN | C4 continued from “100 Percent” “I think the transition has been pretty easy,” Barefoot said. “I’ve been here so I’m comfortable with how things work around here.” The team has also bought into coach Barefoot and her system. “I really feel like every day they’re giving me their best. They are giving me 110 percent,” coach Barefoot said. “They have a great attitude, they want to be coached, they want to be pushed and that’s big.” As far as this season goes, coach Barefoot wants to use every day as an opportunity to get better. “We’re just making the atmosphere so competitive that we want to eventually say that practices are harder than games.” “I want this team to be so strong coming into March. I want us to be so tough that we’re tough to beat mentally, physically and emotionally,” Barefoot said. “That truly is my goal in March. I want to be the best team.” If the Lady Monarchs want to be the best team in March, they are going to have to overcome losing four of their starters from last year. ODU lost three guards in Jasmine Parker, Shadasia Green and Kquanise Byrd and one forward in Alena Voronina to graduation. Coach Barefoot, however, doesn’t think it will be a problem replacing the four. “It’s neat when you know that you have four starters that are gone and everybody’s definitely fighting for a position to play” Barefoot said. “In our philosophy, honestly, we don’t care who starts and who finishes. We all are going to be playing a big part.” The Monarchs do have one returning starter and that is senior forward Tia Lewis. Lewis is also the only senior on the team, so a lot of leadership falls on her shoulders. “She’s amazing,” said coach Barefoot who has gotten to know Lewis pretty well. Lewis and coach Barefoot spend a lot of time talking off the court about the team. “I always want to make the team better, so it’s great for me to hear what she has to say and it’s great for me to kind of coach her and say this is what needs to be done, at the same time I could say what could we do better.” It seems like there is a lot of positivity going around thanks to Coach Barefoot who brings her own attitude to ODU. “Refuse to lose attitude, that’s coach Barefoot, refuse to lose attitude. You’re going to give everything and some and you’re never going to take off any possession,” coach Barefoot said, “That’s how we play. We play hard, we play with passion, you know, we’re going to scrap, we’re going to claw to the end and we want to win. We are going to give our absolute best. Not 100 percent, 110 percent.” While she has not yet coached a game as the Lady Monarchs head coach, coach Barefoot seems to be making all of the right moves. “I really want to get this program turned around and get the fans what they deserve and I want this group to really grow together and become a strong family,” coach Barefoot said. It sounds like she herself isn’t giving 100 percent, but instead 110 percent.

Freshman Football Phenom Quarterback Taylor Heinicke Takes Over Under The Gun By: tyler mCCarthy Staff Writer Quarterback Taylor Heinicke believed he would be a huge asset for the Old Dominion football program during his tenure. However, Heinicke didn’t know his skills would be needed this early in his college career. As veteran quarterback Thomas Demarco went down with an ankle injury against the minutemen of University of Massachusetts, the Monarchs seemed to have a flat tire. Head coach Bobby Wilder called on the freshman Heinicke to rally the offense past a successful UMass team. After getting used to the college football atmosphere, Heinicke was stellar, completing eight out of 11 passes for 119 yards and two touchdowns, leading the Monarchs past the minutemen. “It took some time getting used to the college game at first,” Heinicke said, “But when I made some completions, I started to relax and eventually threw for two touchdowns. It was a huge game for me. It felt like I got a huge weight lifted off my shoulders.” While growing up in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia, Heinicke learned the value of hard work at an early age. “I have been taught that you can reach whatever you want to do, by working hard at it,” Heinicke said. This mentality has helped Heinicke throughout his entire football career. During his senior season at Collins High School, Heinicke threw for over 4,000 yards and 44 touchdowns. He currently ranks second in Georgia state history in pass yards and third in touchdowns.

However, his arm isn’t his only threat. Heinicke’s ability to move out of the pocket is a huge advantage to his style of play. With Heinicke’s dual-threat capabilities, he could either gain yards on his feet, or escape from defensive linemen to make an accurate throw to an open receiver. “My strength as a quarterback is me being able to move out of the pocket when I need to. Outside of the pocket is where I am the biggest threat to a defense,” Heinicke said. In his two opening drives, against UMASS and Towson, Heinicke seemed nervous and not accustomed to the collegiate style of play. Heinicke feels that with the more experience he gets as a starter, the nervousness in the opening drive will fade. “In my first two opening drives, I was both nervous and excited. I feel like with more starts, I will have more experience and I won’t be nervous,” Heincke continued, “I want to work on having a successful opening drive. It is important to get an upper hand on your opponents early.” Being a starter in the Colonial Athletic Association could have a lot of pressure on an inexperienced freshman quarterback. Heinicke needed some advice from a veteran player on the team. Demarco has been a tremendous role model to Heinicke since his arrival at ODU. Heinicke has valued Demarco’s work ethic and leadership skills. “Thomas has been helpful since day one. He always looks for what is best for the team and not for himself,” Heinicke said. Despite Demarco’s ankle injury, he has been mentoring Heinicke in preparing for games as well. Heinicke’s performance against Towson showed how

Football

far preparation can get a player, throwing for over 350 yards. Demarco’s encouraging advice has been beneficial for Heinicke’s success. Heinicke will be a great part of the Old Dominion football team for many years to come. With his early experience as a starting quarterback, it will help further not only his team, but himself as well, to reach the ultimate goal of a CAA conference championship. Come and watch the Monarchs take on the Dukes of James Madison University on Oct. 29 at Foreman Field. The “Oyster Bowl” will be another great test for Heinicke and the Monarchs in their first season in the CAA.

A Real Man’s Sport ODU CLUB RUGBY STARTS OUT WITH A WINNING RECORD By: sarah roBy Staff Writer Old Dominion’s club rugby team has started this season with a record of 2-1 with wins against Longwood University and the University of Richmond, while losing to Mary Washington. The rugby team anticipates a good season due to their strong bond. “We have a great team bond, we always hang out together,” said Paul Stephens, the club president. As the president of the team, Stephens said, “My job is to make sure the team doesn’t go bankrupt, to find volunteer opportunities and to find tournaments in the spring.” Stephens is a senior flanker and takes a major leadership role on the team. Stephens believes that the bond among the rugby players is their best asset, but communication on the field is a problem. “We need to work on communication during games,” Stephens said.

ODU rugby still has three games ahead of them this season, VMI, JMU, and Radford. VMI is a home game on Oct. 22 at 1 p.m. in Lafayette Park, which is located at the end of 38 and Granby. JMU will be an away game on Oct. 29. Radford will be the last home game on Nov. 5. When asked about the best players of the team, Stephens replied, “We have a lot of great players, it’s hard to say, but we have some key leaders in John Zummo, Nick Johnson, and Bryce Baxter.” Altogether there are about 35-40 players on the team, only 15 start and seven are considered the back-ups. “We will be losing a lot of starters after this year, but we’re not concerned about it because the back-ups show a lot of promise,” Stephens said. Since the team is a club organization, they have to come up with their own money when they travel for games and tournaments. This fall, the team has to come up with money for the expenses

of three trips. The university does give the rugby team money for uniforms, but they have to provide their own transportation and places to stay. The rugby team does fundraising to raise money for their traveling expenses. “For the past couple of years, we have volunteered at the National Wrestling Tournament and we also volunteer as ball boys at ODU soccer games,” Stephens said. “We have a lot of rugby friends and fans, but we could use more support,” Stephens added. The team plays at

an off-campus site, which results in a lot of the campus not knowing when and where they play. The rugby team would love for more ODU students to support them at their home games at Lafayette Park. This team of rugby players has a lot of passion and love for the game. They put their best effort into every practice and tournament. They are dedicated and determined to finish their season on the winning side of the game column.

Pul l Up J By: Jake UllriCh Sports Assistant

Jun. 8. That’s the day of the first 2014 World Cup qualifying match for the United States men’s soccer team. You know, that huge tournament that had the entire nation on the edge of their seat. That tournament that gave Americans the best moment since landing on the moon. Until then, we don’t need to worry about Jurgen Klinsmann. I know the results right now are frustrating. Trust me, I’ve been angrier at this team right now than I am at the kid who takes the last cookie at Webb. But it’s ok. We didn’t hire Klinsmann to win friendlies. We hired him to win in the World Cup, take our team to the next level and begin to compete for serious trophies. Klinsmann has proved he knows what he is doing. He won a World Cup as a player and managed the German team to third place in the 2006 World Cup. That resume allows him a lot of leeway when it comes to results in meaningless friendlies.

The team is faltering against subpar opponents because they are playing an entirely new system. It’s like they’re learning to speak a new language and that is going to take a while to get use to. Under Bradley, they played a very strict, defensive, counter-attacking style of play and Klinsmann is changing that to a much more attacking system. He stresses flexibility and wants the team to run like a well-oiled machine. That takes time. Klinsmann needs to find his squad, figure out what players he likes and how he wants to use them. Luckily for him, the goalkeeper position is no question. Tim Howard is one of the better keepers in the world and has no competition for his spot. Unfortunately, that’s about the only position guaranteed. On defense, the team looks old. Carlos Bocanegra and Steve Cherundolo are 32 and both seem to be on their last legs. Oguchi Onyewu put out a very good performance in his last match, but it still remains to be seen if he can stay healthy for a long period of time. Klinsmann has given call-ups to Tim Ream, Jonathan Spector, Timothy Chandler, Omar Gonzalez, Michael Orozco and Edgar Castillo, but has yet to find what four he wants as his first choice. The consistency of a back four is crucial and Klinsmann needs to find who he trusts the most. Unfortunately for the future of the U.S., Bocanegra, Cherundolo and Onyewu all seem to be first choice starters right now. Midfield is most likely the United States’ strongest area. With a fully healthy Landon Donovan, the team needs to be able to consistently contribute to attack with a solid midfield. As much as I hate Clint Dempsey and think he hurts the team, I understand he scores goals and will be a regular in the squad. The revelation of the current squad is 21 year old Brek Shea. Shea has shown incredible class for the team, creating chances regularly and providing a different type of attack than the U.S.

has usually had. It seems right now that Shea is being overworked. With his MLS season in full swing, Klinsmann is asking a lot of a 21 year old Shea to be the best player on the field game in and game out. He has yet to play with Donovan, and that will certainly take some pressure of the young man’s shoulders. The holding midfield position is most up for grabs in Klinsmann’s team. Kyle Beckerman, Maurice Edu and Michael Bradley have all seen time in that role with Beckerman seeing the most. I’m personally not a fan of Beckerman, I think he’s way too slow on the ball and provides nothing going forward, as opposed to Edu and Bradley who both attack well. Klinsmann might be giving Bradley a wake-up call to having a coach other than his father. Hopefully not seeing himself in the starting 11 every game will make Bradley begin to perform better for the squad. Where to even begin with forward? How about with a stat. Not one US forward has scored in a World Cup since Brian McBride in 2002. The past two World Cups, no forward has scored. That has to change and quickly. Most people seem to agree that Jozy Altidore is the best choice to play as a striker, but his passing and hold-up play has been terrible of late. Most importantly though, he isn’t scoring. The team needs a player who can take the game’s one chance and turn a draw into a win. The U.S. choices of forwards seem few and far between. Edson Buddle and Juan Agudelo have both been given chances, but neither has overly impressed and Robbie Findley and Chris Wondolowski have both been poor. Its surprising that Klinsmann hasn’t given Hercules Gomez a chance, but ultimately, the team needs to find someone to score. But now is the time for Klinsmann to find that formula. These are friendlies, their sole purpose is for the team to practice and get better. They’re nothing more than glorified scrimmages. Klinsmann can fiddle and tinker as much as he wants now to ensure by Jun. 8, he has the right team. And judging by his resume, he usually does.
