FWC reopens Everglades

Architect to lecture at UM

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission has issued an order reopening the Everglades and the Francis S. Taylor, Holey Lank and Rotenberger wildlife management areas to duck hunters and froggers. Taking other game continues to be prohibited. The order took effect last Friday and also prohibits vehicle and airboat use and other public access. The order is necessary because of high water levels that have jeopardized wildlife, particularly deer. To report a violation of this order, any wildlife law violations or a boating emergency, call the toll-free Wildlife Alert number at 888-404-3922.

Renowned Colombian architect Giancarlo Mazzanti, one of the world’s leading experts on urban design, is coming to the University of Miami this Wednesday at 6 p.m. Mazzanti has completed projects such as the architectural and landscape design of the district educational institutions in Bogota in 2004. He also designed the prototype pedestrian bridge of Santa Fe de Bogota in 2000. One of his most famous works is the Biblioteca Espana in Medellin, Colombia. These three rock-like structures sit at the top of a hillside overlooking Medellin and serve as an iconic symbol for the city. The event is free and open to the public and will be held at the Jorge M. Perez Architecture Center at 1215 Dickinson Dr. on the university’s Coral Gables campus.

UM professor, biological oceanographer names Celebrity cruise ship University of Miami professor and oceanographer Sharon Smith recently named Celebrity Cruises’ 2,850-guest ship Celebrity Solstice. She is the first ocean scientist ever to serve as the godmother of a cruise ship. A biological oceanographer, Smith has traveled the world on research expeditions from the polar regions to the Arabian Sea. Smith investigates ecosystems by looking at how ocean physics shape the availability of the food supply and the effects global warming is having on food for birds, fish, baleen whales and other animals. In 1993, she joined the faculty of UM’s Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science as a professor of marine biology and fisheries. She also co-directs the university’s Oceans and Human Health Center and was recently named assistant dean of the undergraduate program in marine science. Celebrity Solstice will begin its season Nov. 23 on a series of seven-night round-trip Eastern Caribbean cruises from Fort Lauderdale. In spring 2009, the new ship will introduce a series of 10 and 11-night Mediterranean sailings round-trip from Rome. “All of us at Celebrity Cruises are exceptionally proud and honored to call inspiring ocean scientist... and very special woman, Sharon Smith, godmother of Celebrity Solstice,” said Richard Fain, the chairman and CEO of parent company Royal Caribbean Cruises.

US AND WORLD NEWS IRAQ - Iraq’s cabinet overwhelmingly approved a security pact with the U.S. on Sunday, accepting the presence of U.S. troops until 2012. The deal detailing the conditions of U.S. presence still needs parliamentary approval, and lawmakers could vote as soon as Nov. 24. SOMALIA - On Sunday, an armed group captured a Japanese freighter off the coast of Somalia. There was a 23 member crew on board. The hijackers’ motives and the safety of the crew is still unclear. WASHINGTON - Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said this Saturday that the House of Representatives would give money to collapsing American automakers. This money was conditional as the auto-industry has to meet new standards such as increased fuel efficiency. Pelosi did not specify how much money the House would allot. ATLANTA - Bill Clinton has been campaigning for Democratic challenger Jim Martin in his Dec. 2 run-off race against incumbent Republican Saxby Chambliss. Last week, former Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain campaigned for Chambliss.

Miller dean inspires UM students, professors with fitness regime rally against Amendment 2 Students join for Sunday runs BY ED S. FISHMAN ASSISTANT NEWS EDITOR

At 18-years-old, Pascal Goldschmidt – now the dean of the University of Miami’s Miller School of Medicine – was on Belgium’s junior national field hockey team. Now, at 54, he is working just as hard and has a workout regimen that allows him to compete in marathons and triathlons while maintaining his professional life. “People are surprised [about my workouts],” Goldschmidt said. “It’s not a typical image of deans, but these workouts are important. It helps me maintain a high level of good health.” In addition to his position as dean, Goldschmidt is the senior vice president for medical affairs and the CEO of UHealth, the university’s health system. His workouts, although time consuming, only facilitate these duties. “My day is very long and challenging. These workouts give me a substantial amount of energy and help me manage it,” Goldschmidt said. His routine consists of an hour of intense cardio and weight lifting each morning. Every Sun-

day, Goldschmidt either runs half marathons or full triathlons on Rickenbacker Causeway. Students join him on his Sunday ventures. Although, they usually finish at the same time, Dan Cushman, a medical student, testifies that the dean does not take it easy. “You will be running along at a steady pace then, all of a sudden, he will turn on the jets and start flying,” Cushman said. “It is nice to have someone running the medical school that cares about fitness.” On these runs, the dean will converse with students on a range of topics. “You can run with him and talk to him, but if Goldschmidt thinks we are going too slow, he will speed up and separate himself from the pack,” said Andy Ransford, a first-year medical student. Goldschmidt has recently competed in the 2007 Miami Marathon and the 2008 Miami Half Marathon. In both races, he placed in the top 25 in his division. “I look forward to moving up to the 50 to 55 age group,” Goldschmidt said. “It will be easier to rank higher.” He credits his success in athletics to discipline. Goldschmidt wakes up between 4:30 a.m. and 5 a.m. to work out on weekdays and follows a strict diet. “I only eat fish and seafood,” Goldschmidt said. “I do not eat anything that can recognize its mother.” His diet is not based strictly on discipline; he strongly supports animal rights. “I think he has a great competitive drive to be in the position as dean and be as fit as he is for his age,” Ransford said.

Facebook used to spread word BY SIERRA WININGS CONTRIBUTING NEWS WRITER

Hundreds gathered outside the Miami Beach City Hall in protest of anti-gay legislation Saturday, an activist effort that began with a few University of Miami seniors, professors and the help of Facebook. “We were unhappy with how few protests Florida had compared to California,” said Kelley Tighe, a UM senior and president of the UM chapter of the National Organization for Women’s Campus Action Network. Proposition 8 in California, similar to Amendment 2 in Florida, revoked the rights of same-sex couples to marry, and people throughout California have recently taken to the streets to protest the discriminatory legislation. Concerned with the lack of protests taking place in Florida, Brenna Munro, a professor in women’s studies and the English department, looked to Facebook to speak her mind. After writing a post entitled, “Where are all the gay rights protests?” Munro created an event page. She was pleasantly surprised with the response. Six days and several sign-making parties later, UM students, along with numerous supporters from the greater Miami area, were on the street. “We started a Facebook page, and things started happening. It was collective and spontaneous,” Munro said. The Miami Beach rally was part of a simultaneous nationwide demonstration, Join the Impact. A projected 1 million people were expected to gather in over 300 cities in all 50 states. At 1:30 p.m., inspired crowds brought rainbow posters and a vision of equality to 17th Street in front of the Miami Beach City Hall. Cheering, chanting protesters carried signs reading, “My civil right is not your decision” and “Shouldn’t the pursuit of happi-

ness include marriage equality?” One opponent of gay marriage was present. On the opposite side of the street, he carried a sign that read, “Repent and Jesus will make you Holy.” The rally featured a Kiss-In, where demonstrators could be free to love whoever. Following was an open-mic session for participants. Munro called two Michaels to the stage. The couple announced that they had just gotten married in California. “I got a lot of hope today,” shared one. The protesters were also led through a “Jump the Broom” demonstration. Historically, jumping the broom was the equivalent of tying the knot when marriages between slaves were not recognized. The event brought many UM

students involved in other on-campus organizations out. “I’ve seen a lot of students that I know,” senior Sara Phillips said. She worked in the campaign against Amendment 2 this semester and helped found a new student group, UM for Equality. “We’re trying to keep the momentum,” she said. “I’m looking forward from hearing from the police how many people are here,” Munro said. “We’re not expecting any immediate political changes, but this was an opportunity to express our feelings collectively. We wanted to bring people together so work can begin.” Sierra Winings may be contacted at swinings@themiamihurricane. com.

Spotted On Site: Jessica Rausch, architecture major Maryland native is in Delta Gamma COMPILED BY TANYA THOMPSON THE MIAMI HURRICANE: Where are you from? Jessica Rausch: Annapolis, Maryland. TMH: So why go to Miami for school? JR: It is something different to come here, totally different from home. Besides it’s only a two hour plane ride down here so my mom can visit me more often. TMH: What made you want to study architecture? JR: When I was 4 or 5 I was obsessed with Legos and I would always build Lego houses and such with my dad. So it has always been in the back of my mind. I would always comment on pretty houses.

When I was in high school the art teachers pushed art and the math and science teachers pushed their subjects so architecture was a balance between the two. TMH: What do you do in your free time? JR: I’m in a sorority, Delta Gamma, and on the executive board. I’m one of the VPs, which means I’m in charge of Greek Week and philanthropy events and I have to be at everything, so that takes up a lot of time. Also I’m an only child so it has helped me become a lot more outgoing. TMH: What do you plan to do after you leave college? JR: There are a lot of options, one being interior design. But I don’t know because I’m also really interested in teaching so we’ll see. Tanya Thompson may be contacted at tthompson@ themiamihurricane.com

DESIGN: Jessica Rausch, who is also minoring in art and art history, chose architecture because of her interest in buildings and because it balances the subjects of art, math and science.

Zipcar demand leaves students wanting, more cars may come Program may add Mahoney lot station BY MICHAEL SPEARS CONTRIBUTING NEWS WRITER

DANNY BULL// Hurricane Staff

IN WAIT: The only Zipcar lot is located by the freshman dorms. 4

NEWS

Three months after it launched on campus, the car-sharing program Zipcar is planning to expand its service of providing transportation to students in need of rental cars. “The goal is to place another pod on the Mahoney/Pearson side of campus,” said Richard Sobaram, director of Parking and Transportation Services at the University of Miami. Sobaram is meeting with Zipcar representatives to determine if students are likely to use this new service on the Mahoney/ Pearson side of campus. “It would be more convenient if Zipcar was over here,” said sophomore Jordan Thomas, referring to the Mahoney/Pearson parking lot. “I don’t have my car here and I would be more likely to use [Zipcar].” This year, UM changed its student transportation policy, announcing that the incoming freshman class of 2012 would not be allowed to have cars on campus. Zipcar, a key platform idea of last year’s Committed To U Student Government ticket, led by SG

THE MIAMI HURRICANE

President Brandon Gross, has proven to be increasingly popular among students. “We exceeded the quota for September and October,” said Sobaram, who added that the quota for November has been met. The school must meet a reservation quota with Zipcar each month to have this program on campus. Sobaram said that he has received mostly positive feedback from students about the Zipcar program but has heard complaints about reserving cars in advance. Ryan Quigtar, a freshman, is concerned by the availability of the cars. “A lot of times, like on Fridays or Saturdays, you have to book those [days] a good week or two in advance,” Quigtar said. “You need to have a plan already set up with your friends and have to stick to that plan. Freshman Carissa Harris said that although she was once forced to reserve a car at midnight because that was the only time available for the night she requested. Still, Harris said she is not bothered because she does not utilize the service often. The three Zipcars at UM – a hybrid Toyota Prius, a Toyota Matrix and a Honda CRV – were brought to campus on Aug. 21. Sobaram said the program launched successfully the next day on the UC Rock. Originally, Zipcar offered a Hyundai SUV, but the vehicle was totaled and replaced

by the Honda CRV. More may be available on campus by January, Sobaram said. “We did it in conjunction with freshman orientation since freshmen aren’t allowed to have cars on campus,” Sobaram said. To use this service, students must register through the Zipcar Web site by providing credit card and driver’s license information. Approval is based on drivers’ records and takes up to 48 hours. Once approved, a membership card is mailed to the recipient, who pays a one-time $35 fee. Hourly usage rates start at $8 and are charged to a member’s credit card on file. This fee pays for insurance and gas. Each car also has a gas card in the left visor that can be used anytime the car needs to be re-fueled. “I’m not into the whole taxi thing, so I’ll just rent my Zipcar,” Harris said. “When [my friends and I] want to go somewhere we can go wherever we want.” The cars are available 24 hours a day in the Stanford/Hecht parking via reservations made online (www.zipcar.com). Students are able to reserve a car for a few hours or, for $65, an entire day. “Its more convenient than the Metrorail or the bus,” Quigtar said. “I don’t have to rely on other people to take me places.” Michael Spears may be contacted at mspears@themiamihurricane.com.

Seana Campbell died in August

Faculty member participates in Miami Book Fair Rostenstiel faculty member and author Elizabeth Babcock participated in a discussion with bestselling author Mark Kurlansky on Saturday afternoon. As part of the 25th Annual Miami Book Fair International, they spoke about sustainable fisheries.

If one had the chance to meet her, friends say they could see the sparkle in her eyes and the charm in her smile that exuded the compassion and love that guided her life, and brought her within months of graduating from the University of Miami with magna cum laude honors. On Friday, Nov. 21, at 6 p.m. in the physics courtyard of the McArthur Engineering Building, her peers and family will be able to remember her one last time. Seana Tiffani Campbell, a 22-year-old student pursuing a dual degree in architectural engineering and environmental engineering, passed away on Tuesday, Aug. 29, after being fatally wounded in a scooter accident while on vacation in Mexico. Her sister, Aimee, was also involved in the traffic accident, but sustained minor injuries. “She was a really loving individual,” said Amanda Nurse, Campbell’s best friend and roommate for three years at UM. “She always tried to find the good in people.” In addition to being elected president of both UM’s chapter of Amnesty International and the Chi Epsilon civil engineering honor society, she was involved with the Baptist Campus Ministry, Society of Women Engineers, American Society of Civil Engineers, Engineers Without Borders and many more student organizations. “She added environmental engineering to make a difference in this world. She loved learning and would always stay up in the library until late,” Nurse said. “She was really artistic and really creative.” “Knowing her through the Baptist collegiate ministry, I know she had a pure and genuine heart and cared about every single individual that she encountered,” said Emily McCollum, a senior public relations major and a former president of BCM. “I was saddened to hear of her passing. She will be missed by many, but will remain loved by all.” Seana enjoyed expressing herself through art and frequently rock climbed. She had a particular interest in environmental issues. “She was going to save the world,” Nurse said. “She loves the environment. She’s just so loving.

opinion editorial

cartoon by tiffany agam

Gay marriage? How about no marriage? The passage of Amendment 2 in the state of Florida affirms that marriage is one thing and one thing only. The union of a man and a woman – that’s it, ‘nuff said, no questions asked. But what does that mean to the gay community? Well, as Proposition 8 passed in California, and Amendment 2 passed down here, men and women of the gay and lesbian community hung their heads and began to realize what was actually happening. The people of the United States have come down with a mighty wrath and made the denial of equal rights to a certain group of people a government policy. Wasn’t all this civil rights nonsense over in the ‘60s? The ensuing battle over the past two weeks has shown that both sides are strongly committed to what they believe in. We propose a Third Way. Government should get out of the business of participating in the religious construct that is marriage. If two people wish to enter into a contractual agreement to bind their property, insurance and hospital visitation rights (among other things), then they should have that right. If they wish to have that union blessed, then it’s their right to search for a religious organization to do so. And it’s the religious organization’s right to decline. Speaking of religious organizations, the government should consider investigating the Mormon church and stripping their taxexempt status. If the church has $22 million to pour into California’s “Yes on 2” movement and its First Presidency has the time to draft a statement urging its congregation to “do all they can” to support the proposition, it surely has the time to answer questions about how those actions don’t conflict with their 501(c) (3) status. One final point: To anyone who wants to talk about gay couples defying the sanctity of marriage, 43 percent of first-married couples get divorced nowadays - that’s an embarrassment to a holy agreement. We’ll bet that the people taking to the streets just to say “I do” will probably hold out for the long the run.majority Editorials represent

OPINION

THE MIAMI HURRICANE

letter in response to Austen Gregerson Let’s set the record straight: I hate Sarah Palin just as much if not more than any other University of Miami student. But that doesn’t mean that I’m going to take it out on her home state, because what did Alaska ever do to you? And that brings me to the question: Who the hell does Austen Gregerson think he is? I must have missed all the “cocky” Alaskans that Austen saw interviewed. From what I’ve seen, Alaskans just look like fools for having once voted for someone as incompetent as Sarah Palin into office and for having possibly just elected the first convicted felon into the Senate. Even they know how stupid they look; Alaska is the only state to have less voter turnout in 2008 than in 2004, from 69.1 percent down to 45.1 percent, even with their native daughter on the ballot. But let’s begin with a fact check. Where was Alaska 50 years ago? Where was Miami 50 years ago? Actually both Alaska and Miami came into their present beings in 1959; the Castro coup in Cuba caused Miami’s Cuban population to soar, and Alaska finally became a state after the gold rush had already been booming for over seventy years. And that huge “folly” of buying Alaska from the Russian Empire? It cost America a whopping $7.2 million ($360 million with inflation). The war in Iraq costs us approximately $410 million a day, and remember a few

weeks ago when we spent $700 billion on the Wall Street buyout? What fools we were to buy a huge plot of land that is full of gold, zinc, coal, timber, natural gas and oil, and that was advantageous during the Cold War. Luckily, Austen not only set the record straight on purchasing Alaska, but he also imparts us with the knowledge that we apparently own Iraq. I was unaware of our superior imperialistic prowess. Austen clued us in that we own not just Iraq, but also the Pacific Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico. Who knew? Alaska is amazing for the precise reasons that Austen despises it. One person per square mile is completely different than the rest of America; it is basically the moon compared to Miami. 1.7 million people last summer spent their hard-earned dollars on a trip to Alaska. Dozens of them told me that coming to the untamed wilderness had been a lifelong dream of theirs. Apparently, Austen isn’t one of them, but why does he have to ruin it for the rest of us?

“The one bill you won’t get is for your freedom. That bill has already been paid.” – Ian Michael Rogers, Sophomore

by joshua w. newman

Break the control and step away from the screen The entertainment industry controls our lives. Our clothes, our speech, our actions, our interactions - all based on television and movie characters, scenarios, soundtracks. Our emulation of these idealistic morals and values has gone so far over the top that some people get trapped and simply don’t know where to go. Unfortunately, there is no solution to be offered. I love TV, hell, I just finished watching the second-to-last episodes of “Entourage,” “True Blood,” “Dexter,” “Californication”... the list continues. But beyond our copy-cat agenda – that many of us don’t even realize exists – the television, as an invention, creates a portal through which we can lose ourselves indefinitely. We can sit on our comfy couches and watch three

consecutive episodes of “Law & Order” and have no idea three hours just went by. I’m not going to get into commercials, because that’s an entirely different opinion column. Think about how unmotivated and how incomparably lazy we are because of the tube. The same argument can be made with all the entertainment available on the Internet including Facebook, YouTube, Hulu (for streaming shows/movies), etc. At least with the World Wide Web we have the ability to be socially and professionally interactive. But before I lose my thought, how active were kids and students our age in the pre-TV era? Most of us can probably ask our parents. They’ll give you a speech about how they walked uphill in the snow to and from school and watching television was a privilege obtained only after homework and chores were completed. Only THEN could you watch the black and white blurry figures scamper across

the screen while you adjust the antennae to clear the picture. Well here’s my call to action... we should all get off our lazy asses and do just that. Every time you reach for the remote control, think to yourself, “could I be doing something more productive?” The answer is undoubtedly “yes.” There is always something more important to do than watch TV. Gym, homework, how about looking for a job, you seniors in the crowd? Just try dropping an hour or two of TV each week or each day, whatever works. Although I’m sure I have strayed from my original point, technology can be a great device or an addictive fortress. It is only up to us to decide.

What do you think of states banning gay marriage?

letter to the editor President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed Nov. 11 as Armistice Day in 1919 – the oneyear anniversary of the Treaty of Versailles, the end of WWI. The day was set aside to honor those who fought for our country during what was then known as “the war to end all wars.” Today, the holiday encompasses veterans of all wars, celebrating their patriotism, honoring their valor and recognizing the sacrifices they made. Most Americans view Veterans Day as simply a day off. People don’t remember its true meaning. Veterans Day isn’t celebrated and honored the way it was meant to be. It is sad that in our high-paced, fast lifestyles, we cannot take a small time out of our day to honor all American veterans. I saw no reference at all on campus or in my classes to this national holiday. The media gave it 30 seconds of airtime at best. What a shame

for the over 620,000 Americans who died in the American Civil War, the over 400,000 in WWII and, today, the over 4,000 in Iraq and Afghanistan. It does not matter if you are for or against the Iraq War or against any type of war. Today, there are over 17 million war veterans alive in the U.S. The ultimate value that our veterans have fought and died for is freedom. America is the country of freedom. We were the first to declare that government exists to serve men; men do not exist to serve government. We were the first to proclaim that all men are equal before the law. We were the first to say that each individual has inalienable rights – the right to life, liberty, property, and the pursuit of happiness. The best way we can honor our veterans and give real meaning to Veterans Day – aside

from ceremonies honoring their dedication and bravery – is to promise that we will go to war only when America’s interests as a free nation are threatened, and wage it in the uncompromising pursuit of victory. Mail isn’t delivered on Veterans Day, but the next day the mailbox may contain your cell phone bill. The one bill you won’t get is for your freedom. That bill has already been paid. The least we can do is take five minutes out of our day, get off Facebook, stop text messaging on our cell phones and remember all those who have fought – and in some cases given their lives – so we can live freely today.

CURT PARKS Junior “I don’t agree with denying anybody rights that don’t take away from other people. I think other people’s lifestyles don’t affect me personally, but at the same time I did grow up in a church so I’m torn.”

Starting tonight, students at the University of Miami are invited to swim in a sea of shorts as the Miami Short Film Festival kicks off its week-long festivities celebrating the best of international and local short films. Partnering with UM’s School of Communication for the second year in a row, the MSFF opens at 7:30 p.m. with the Red Carpet Gala at the Bill Cosford Cinema, where films ranging from the creative to the comedic and the artistic to the authentic will be shown. “The strength of the MSFF is that it is eclectic and diverse,” said Sam Grogg, the dean of the School of Communication. “It presents a broad program of short screen works that reminds the audience of the incredible range and variety of opportunities for artistic expression in the moving image media.” Filmmakers from around the globe will showcase their talents at some of Miami’s top cultural venues, including the Tower Theatre in the heart of Little Havana and the Miami Beach Cinematheque. Films also are being shown at the Miami Art Museum, Miami Museum of Science and Planetarium, Miami Children’s Museum and the Cosford Cinema. Short films, generally 30 minutes or less, are “more of a challenge,” said William Vela, founder of the MSFF. “ T o

come up with a beginning, middle and an end in less than 30 minutes is more artistic and has more of a personality,” he said. At Vela’s first even in 2001, the 50 chairs set out for the exhibition were quickly overwhelmed by 350 bodies struggling to find a place to watch the 17 films showcased that night. The initial success of Vela’s efforts launched a series of partnerships that led to the establishment of the MSFF in 2002. Now in its seventh year, the MSFF’s recent partnership with the School of Communication provides the UM community with a wealth of opportunities to advance short film

m i w s o t s t n e d u t s M U

works throughout the city. In addition to hosting five nights of films, the School of Communication will offer panels and filmmaking workshops. Alumni, faculty and students are involved in all aspects of the festival, from submissions to judging to marketing and publication. Dia Kontaxis, an associate producer of the MSFF and a motion pictures professor, has been working with students to publicize and coordinate the events, which run through Sunday. A few new categories have been added to the festival, including “Tomorrow’s Filmmakers Today,” which showcases the best of student films. Three UM students have been selected to present their films in the festival. They are Koen Thiry, Daniel Gordon and Christina DerHagopian. Except for opening night, UM students can see all of MSFF’s featured films at the Cosford free of charge. Just bring some popcorn and enjoy.

Kanye West explores his heartbreak with Auto-Tune in tow ‘808s’ shows soft side of cocky superstar BY DAN BUYANOVSKY EDGE EDITOR

Kanye West is lonely. In the past year, he’s lost his mother and his fiancé of three years, and not even his 10 Grammys or signature Nike Air Yeezys can keep him contented in these trying times. On his new album, 808s and Heartbreak, he chronicles the coping process that is sparked by lost love. Welcome to the heartbreak of one of our generation’s most passionate and creative mega-superstars. Aptly titled, 808s and Heartbreak delves deep into Kanye’s devastation and inner battle between masculinity and misfortune. Meanwhile, every song is marked by a hardhitting 808 drum pattern and more AutoTune than T-Pain’s latest album. The album opens with “Welcome to Heartbreak,” on which Ye sets the tone with an admission: “My friend showed me pictures of his kids/And all I could show him is pictures of my cribs.” The track makes it obvious that the man who comfortably called himself the Louis Vuitton Don and popularized a fresher-than-thou lifestyle is clearly having an identity crisis. Weezy comes in for the assist on “Everyone You Know,” a song that serves as an uplifting anthem to men who simply can’t figure out how to move on. Mr. Carter meditatively sings, “I might see you in my nightmare/How did you get there?/We were once a fairy tale/But this is farewell.” He sets the

tone well for a thoughtful track, but it’s lines like “OK I’m back up on my grind/You do you and I’m just gon’ do mine” from Kanye that make you wonder where the hell his heart really is. The album’s high point (and Ye’s emotional low point) comes on “Coldest Winter” – an ode to his late mother, Donda West. The slow and solemn production carries Kanye’s distorted singing, as he emotionally yells, “Goodbye my friend/Will I ever love again?” On 808s, Kanye deals with his lost love by skipping the psychiatrist’s office and recording therapeutic music instead. Thus, the album fittingly follows the stages of grief from denial to acceptance. Along the way, he suffers from near depression on “Streetlights” as he sings “I’m just not there/Life’s just not fair;” expresses anger and scorn for his ex on “Heartless;” and, finally, bargains and pleads on the Kid Cudi-assisted “Paranoid.” Kanye’s account of emotional survival after a relationship’s end throughout the album is unique to his personality. After all, he’s a rapper, and he’s not meant to convey his feelings the way other people do. Simply put, it’s hard for anyone with the male complex of having a fear of expressing emotions to... express emotion. And even though I love that Yeezy bypassed moping and recorded music to ease the pain, he’s a year late with the idea. Black Eyed Peas frontman will.i.am did exactly that (and much more effectively) with his album Songs About Girls. Dan Buyanovsky may be contacted at dbuyanovsky@themiamihurricane.com.

FOOTBALL COMMENTARY

Bittersweet symphony: Miami’s win cathartic for discontented seniors ed by a nationally televised stomping of Virginia Tech in Blacksburg. That night the Miami defense was dominant and the offense did what it had to and nothing more. On Thursday night, the exact same scenario played out. The former marked the end of an era of success and the beginning of the descent into chaos. The latter is the end of a long drought and the clearing of a major hurdle. My brother goes to a big SEC school. After the game, he sent me a message that read, “You earned that.” I could not agree more. No class has had to stick through so much in thirty years. When it was over, I did not know how to respond. As everyone filed out around me, including all of my friends, I sat and absorbed. The end of every game has a ring to it, a unique kind of din. The sound of this game represented a cathartic moment; it was truly symphonic. And for those of us who depart, it was bittersweet. Dan Stein may be contacted at dstein@themiamihurricane.com.

When the final gun sounded on Thursday night, I did not know whether to laugh or cry. As I sung the alma mater and watched the senior players take a group photo for their last home game, I realized that this was truly the end of an era. For me and so many other seniors, this game is representative of the vast unknown awaiting. It was the last home game for this class,

CANES RANKED NO. 23 IN AP AND BCS POLLS The University of Miami is ranked No. 23 in both the Associated Press and Bowl Championship Series polls after topping Virginia Tech last Thursday, the first ranking for the team since the Sept. 10, 2006 poll. This continues a streak of good news for the football program, after division rival North Carolina fell to No. 22 Maryland Saturday night, giving control of the ACC Coastal division to the Hurricanes. No team Miami faces in its last two games is ranked. Miami remains in the “Others Receiving Votes” section of the USA Today poll, coming in at No. 26.

Hurricanes three wins away from ACC title, berth in NCAA tournament Weekend sees wins over Clemson, GT BY JUSTIN ANTWEIL SENIOR SPORTS WRITER

The University of Miami football team isn’t the only squad on campus that controls its own destiny. If the women’s volleyball team wins its final three matches, it will clinch its first ACC title in school history and automatically earn a bid in the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2002. Miami (24-5, 12-5) improved to 12-1 at the James L. Knight Sports Complex by winning two five-set thrillers over elite teams in the ACC, Clemson (19-9, 11-6) and Georgia Tech (18-9, 10-7). “Volleyball is a crazy momentum sport,” head coach Nicole Lantagne Welch said. “The games shifted momentum back and forth. We thought we had some games under control that we really didn’t. In the end, we just found a way to win and that is the bottom line.” With three games remaining, UM is tied for second with Duke (21-8, 12-5) and trails firstplace North Carolina (19-9, 13-4) by one game. The Canes own the tiebreaker with Duke because they swept the Blue Devils in their season series. On Friday night, the Hurricanes battled back from a two-setsto-one deficit to come out on top of the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, (25-15, 20-25, 27-29, 25-21), in front of 843, the largest home crowd of the season. “Katie [Gallagher] was putting up great balls,” junior outside hitter Genny Mayhew said. “When she puts up balls like that, it’s hard not to score. She was doing an excellent job running the offense. Gallagher, freshman Lane Carico and Mayhew all registered double-doubles. Sunday afternoon’s five-set match (29-27, 10-25, 25-18, 18-25, 15-6) marked only the second time in program history that Miami beat the Tigers, a team predicted to win the ACC at the beginning of the year. It was Senior Appreciation Day as the team honored Bridget Bomhack, Angelica Ellis and captain Ashley Woods. 12

SPORTS

Gallagher continued to orchestrate the offense as she tallied 56 assists, nine digs and six kills. Carico propelled the Canes to victory by posting 20 kills, 19 digs and two service aces. A key to the match was in the first set, when the Hurricanes were unable to capitalize on three set point opportunities. The Tigers had a set point chance of their own, but were also unable to take advantage. Miami then won three consecutive points and took the extended set, 29-27. “It was such a great weekend for this volleyball program,” Gallagher said. “We worked hard all week. People were sick and out of practice, but we just able to play together as a team. What you just saw was the real Hurricane volleyball team.” A team predicted to finish ninth in the conference, Miami travels to Chapel Hill, N.C., on Thursday to face first-place North Carolina at 7 p.m. Last month, the Canes beat the Tar Heels in four sets.

No. 16 Miami wins opener 96-60 BY LELAN LEDOUX SENIOR SPORTS WRITER

Different year, same results. With senior guard Lance Hurdle missing the season opener due to a high ankle sprain, sophomore guard Eddie Rios carried the backcourt with a career-high 17 points, as the No. 16 Miami Hurricanes thumped Florida Southern 96-60. Rios shot a team-best 3-3 on three-pointers while dishing out four assists. Rios looked more comfortable on the court this year than he did last season. “I felt confident out there,” Rios said. “It’s a new year, new season. I had a lot of confidence coming into the game.” Down in the paint, junior Dwayne Collins was a problem child, adding 18 points and a career-high 16 rebounds. Even Florida Southern’s seven-footer couldn’t slow down Collins, as he twice succumbed to Collins’ thunderous dunks. “Dwayne was phenomenal,” Haith said. “That’s the kind of big boy stats you want. He played

like he was capable of. When he plays like that, he is a tough match-up.” Last year, Miami defeated Florida Southern 104-61 and scored 50 points in the paint. The focus of this year’s game was the same with the Hurricanes, bruising Florida Southern with 42 points in the paint and 22 fastbreak points. The night started out tough for first team All-ACC selection Jack McClinton, as he struggled to find his rhythm and tallied only six points by the half. McClinton did end up finishing with 18 points, though, a career-best for season-opening games. Up next, the Hurricanes will to travel to the Virgin Islands to play in the Paradise Jam Tournament. Their first opponent will be Southern Miss on Friday, and, if they advance, they could potentially play No. 2 Connecticut in the second round. “The competition is tough out there,” Haith said. “It’s another great tournament and I’m excited for our team. We will have our work cut out for us.” Lelan LeDoux may be contacted at lledoux@themiamihurricane. com. November 17 - 19, 2008

Alright frat guy, it’s time to man-up! Sup Hurriqueen, I have a friend who got out of a long-term relationship a few weeks ago. We’ve been fairly close for awhile, but now I’m starting to think we could be more. I don’t know if I’m misreading the signs, or if there are any in the first place. To top it off, one of her ex-boyfriends is one of my frat brothers. Even though it’s been three semesters since the three weeks they dated, I’m still not sure if it would piss him off. How should I proceed? Would I just be another rebound guy? ~Stop or Go?

Dear Stop or Go, Your situation and questions tend to contradict the stereotype of the uber-masculine frat guy who rarely thinks about how others feel. Bravo, Mr. Progressive. But now it’s time to man-up and stop asking all of these silly questions. First up: Your frat brother’s booty rights over this babe are as “So Yesterday” as Hilary Duff ’s singing career. No one should give a shit. As for your rebound expiration date, that passed weeks ago. If this woman really

needed a pick-me-up, your clothes would’ve already been on her floor, you would’ve already been on your knees, and the two of you would now be on awkward if not non-existent speaking terms. Here’s another thing I don’t get: This chick is either giving you signs or she’s not. You weren’t born yesterday, so trust your instincts. Has she spent increasingly more time with you since her breakup? Has she said she wishes more guys were like you? More importantly, is she touchy-feely? Does she confide in

you more often? If the answer is a resounding yes, then she’s clearly giving you the signs. You must remember that people give the signs for a reason; they want others to take action! And as far as I can tell, you’ve been complacent the last few weeks. Believe me, if she’s really into you, you’re annoying the hell out of her. Act now, and releasing the frustration will make for great sex and romance. Be a pansy about it, and watch your chances go up in flames.
