CRIME AND SAFETY

Recent muggings put campus safety in question Police departments advise more caution BY JESS SWANSON STAFF WRITER

Campus was bustling mid-afternoon on Jan. 28 when a student was mugged in broad daylight near her University Village apartment. Senior Michelle Waltenburg was walking from the UV to the computer lab to print a lecture for class. When she took her Cane Card out of her wallet to gain access to the building, someone ambushed her, snatching her wristlet and cell phone. “It was a whirlwind of an experience,” Waltenburg said. “So overwhelming. It happened so fast, I didn’t know what happened. I screamed and started crying.” Waltenburg is the third student in the last year to be mugged on campus, which doesn’t include the robberies that occur at the Metrorail station. According to the University of Miami Police Department’s (UMPD) report to the Department of Education, there were three robberies in 2010, none in 2011 and one in 2012. Since last April, there have already been three.

“These are crimes of opportunity where the criminals look for easy targets,” said David Rivero, UMPD police chief. “It’s hard to determine why they increase, but crime moves because of displacement; when one area starts getting a lot of heat, the criminals go elsewhere.” Like Waltenburg, Ana Mantica was on the south side of campus in broad daylight when she was robbed. On Nov. 5, Mantica, a graduate student at the School of Education, was walking on San Amaro Drive during her 2 p.m. lunch break when someone snuck up behind her and took her iPhone 5 out of her hand. She was dialing her mother. “I normally used to walk up and down that street at lunch to clear my head,” Mantica said. “I don’t walk down that street anymore now. You lose a sense of security.” According to the police report, the thief got away with Waltenburg’s iPhone 5, her wallet with four credit cards, her driver’s license, Cane Card, Metrorail card, insurance card, $40 and her keys. The items are valued at $464, but Waltenburg explained that feeling safe on campus and at her house was the greater loss.

“I keep thinking what I could have done differently, but it wasn’t a weird time or dark,” Waltenburg said. “I get nervous every time I walk to the printing lab now and I go there all the time.” Coral Gables Police have been unsuccessful bringing these criminals to justice yet. Walterburg’s and Manitca’s muggings involved an unarmed person quickly grabbing their items and running away into a car. The crimes, however, are believed to have been committed by different people. Law enforcement explains that these are crimes of opportunity. UMPD stresses there are actions students and staff can do to lessen their chances of becoming a victim, like staying alert while heading to class, avoiding carrying phones or jewelry in your hand, and when possible, walking with a friend. While Waltenburg’s and Mantica’s experience is unsettling, they were unharmed and were not threatened with deadly weapons. During the attempted mugging last April, junior Raisa Uddin was walking down San Amaro Drive a little before midnight when a woman sitting inside a white car pointed a black handgun at Uddin and shouted “Give me your stuff!” the police re-

port states. Uddin then darted to the Hecht Athletic Center, took refuge inside and called police. While the University of Miami repeatedly has the lowest robbery rate than any other school in Florida, there has been an increase in student robberies in the past year even though crime at UM has dropped from a high of 454 crimes in 2003 to a low of 191 crimes in 2013. Crime Prevention Officer John Gulla explains that there are security escorts available at all times to give you a ride anywhere near campus. Security escorts can be reached by calling UMPD at 305-284-6666 or by using one of the more than 100 blue light phones located throughout campus. Gulla also teaches self-defense classes for women. One is called Rape Aggression Defense (RAD), a three-night comprehensive course accepting applicants for April. The other is Self-Defense Awareness and Familiarization Exchange (SAFE), a two and half hour class happening again in March. “Crime does happen in every neighborhood,” Rivero said. “It can happen to anyone at anytime, but what’s most important is to be aware and not let yourself be an easy victim.”

CAMPUS LIFE

Bestselling author shares story with students Malcolm Gladwell tells of his inspiration BY ASHLEY MARTINEZ ASSISTANT EDITOR

Author Malcolm Gladwell referenced the Kardashian sisters, Kanye West lyrics and a 19th-century duchess to introduce the theme of his latest book “David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants,” which challenges the way people think about obstacles. The five-time New York Times bestselling author spoke Tuesday night at the Student Activities Center. He connected a wealthy duchess’s story to relatable examples of extravagance like the Kardashian sisters. This story illustrated how people misunderstand advantages and disadvantages. “He’s got a really unique perspective of the world,” graduate student Barrett Dennison said. “He kind of looks for the hidden facts that no one really thinks about. He’s got a really unique kind of perspective, so I think we all need to take a step back and think about how the little things influence the big things.” The Miami Hurricane and other student media outlets had a chance to sit down with Gladwell and ask him about his inspiration, advice and why students should think twice before attending UM. The Miami Hurricane: Where did the idea for this book come from? Malcolm Gladwell: Well from a number of places, but I had done a story for The New Yorker a number of years ago about a guy who coached his daughter’s basketball team, and they were completely without talent and they went all the way to the national championships. I

loved the story so much and got such interesting feedback that I thought it would be fun to write a more in-depth explanation of the role of the underdog and the strategies that underdogs use. TMH: What message do you hope college students get from your book, “David and Goliath?” MG: Two chapters of the book are specific to education. One chapter is all about how you should think twice about going to the best school you can get into. So I guess I would say that students that go to the University of Miami should think seriously whether it was the right choice; this is a very good school. No, but I think the intention of that chapter is to make people understand that the question of where do you go to school, how do you choose to educate yourself, is more complicated than we are currently imagining or pretending in America. We have a very narrow set of metric that we use to evaluate the quality of schools. And those metrics are misleading. Basically, you look at something like the U.S. News Ranking system. It’s simply a ranking system that ranks colleges according to one criteria, which is how closely they resemble Harvard University. Now that’s the dumbest thing imaginable because not everyone should go to Harvard University. There’s a whole range of reason why you wouldn’t want to go to a school like that. So my chapter is an attempt to get people to understand that these kinds of questions that turn on the issue of what an advantage is are more complicated than they appear. TMH: In your article featured in Relevant Magazine, you mentioned how you knew the kind of book you wanted to write and then you met Wilma Derksen, and her experience not only changed the direction of your writing, but also had a personal impact on your life. Could

NICK GANGEMI // ASSISTANT PHOTO EDITOR SHARING PERSPECTIVES: Author Malcolm Gladwell spoke to the UM community in the Student Activities Center ballroom on Tuesday night.

you talk about that impact and how it affected your writing? MG: When I write books, I don’t have them planned out before I start, so the book evolves as I write it, but halfway through the book I found myself writing a lot more about what I call in the book “weapons of the spirit,” the notion that what’s inside people’s hearts is ultimately far more crucial than material things. So that courage, anger, perseverance, faith are all things ultimately more consequential in explaining why things happen than money, troops, power, those kinds of things. And that crystallized for me when I met this very remarkable woman, Wilma Derksen, and there were a series of things that would happen, but she was the most striking. Here was a woman who, as I

write about in that chapter, forgave the murderer of her daughter, which I think, on the list of things human beings are capable of doing, that’s just about the hardest. I cannot imagine ever doing that myself. Her explanation for how she did it was a consequence of her religious belief, her faith. And I don’t think you can listen to someone explain that and not be moved, and not re-examine in your own life your feelings about faith, and that’s what happened with me when I listened to her. And one of the things I hope people get out of the books is that, the last part of the book is about faith, about what people are capable of when they believe in something greater than themselves. So it was very profound, and that is not the ending I imagined I would have for my book.

Richter launches free DVD rental program Catalog includes award-winning films BY ALINA ZERPA SENIOR NEWS WRITER

Richter Library launched UDVD, a catalog for DVDs available as of Jan. 27. The program has been developing since the beginning of the 2013 academic year, said head of Web and Emerging Technology, Andrew Darby. Students can check out free DVDs from the Richter Library and pick movies online according to a specific year, genre, country, language or awards. They can also be organized by director, actor, screenwriter or composer.

“It has more of a ‘scholarly approach’ because these movies can be used for research or classwork,” Darby said. “We are not a replacement for Netflix; we are simply using a new technology for the library and the students.” The earliest movie on the database is a short film called “Card Party,” directed by the famous French filmmaker Georges Melies. However, some movies on UDVD can be watched for entertainment like “Les Miserables.” “We are constantly adding movies to the system, especially since it is so new,” Darby said. There are several ways to select movies for UDVD, said Terri Robar, the education and outreach librarian. Robar makes sure to stock

Academy Award nominated films, as well as nominations from other award shows. “I watch the Academy Awards each year and buy every title nominated for best picture plus every film that wins in every other category,” Robar said. “The library has done this retrospectively since 1927, when the awards began.” Additionally, professors request movies to assist with their classes. “One professor was talking about stereotyping in her class and asked us to add a list of film that showed examples of stereotyping of various ethnic groups,” Robar said. Robar has also noticed that students do request movies. Those films are added to the catalogue “as long as we can envision a wide interest

Feb. 13 - Feb. 16, 2014

among our patrons, but we will not buy self-help sort of titles.” Krystina Scott, a sophomore and student employee at Richter, said she believes this program will be a good advantage for the university. “I know for some classes you need to see movies, so it’s a good idea to get them here instead of buying them,” Scott said. In the future, the library hopes to expand the collection and even add an iPad on the first floor to serve as a kiosk for the UDVD catalog.

To request a movie to pick up at the library, students must go online to library.miami.edu/udvd.

Graduate students gain new study space Lounge to provide area for community to come together BY LEXI WILLIAMS CONTRIBUTING NEWS WRITER

University of Miami graduate students will finally have a place of their own to meet up on campus, due to the Graduate Student Association’s efforts to get a lounge in the University Center. The lounge, located in room 213 of the UC’s I-lounge, opened Wednesday. The GSA invited all graduate students to check out the new space that day for a breakfast social. The GSA hopes that the lounge will serve as a “home away from home” for UM’s 2,990 grad students, not including law or medicine students. Many graduate students spend long hours on campus. “I’m always looking for a quiet spot on campus to sit and do homework before or in between classes,” RSMAS doctoral student Maria Cartolano said. “I’m sure the

lounge is a nice place for grad students to meet up and work on group projects.” Students hope that the lounge will bring the relatively segregated community, spread over nine schools and colleges, together in a way that had not been previously possible. “I think the new center will act as a unifying factor among graduate students on campus,” graduate student Austin Swift said. “A shared common space will allow inter-departmental social relationships to form among various cohorts at the U.” The lounge will have a coffee machine, UPrint printer, video data monitor, sofa and microwave, and active grad students will have access to the room with a swipe of their Cane Cards. In the past, the only lounging area designated for students was a small, half-sized classroom on the first floor of the Ungar building. “Ungar 101 was assumed to be a quiet space,” GSA vice president Edwing Medina explained. “With this lounge, we are trying to change the culture. It’ll be mostly a work area, but it may also be a place to catch up on the news or have lunch.”

Funding for the lounge comes from the $42 activity fee every graduate student pays each semester. Many of the appliances being brought in for the lounge are items already donated to or purchased by the GSA in years past. The lounge is just one of many steps in the GSA’s initiative to have a larger, more visible presence on campus. “When you don’t live on campus, it’s very hard to be part of the community,” Medina said. “One of our primary purposes [in the GSA] is to shed some light on our students.” The progress is moving slowly, but steadily. Graduate students were allocated a private study room on the second floor of Richter Library in the fall of 2012. In 2013, for the first time, graduate students were invited to participate in the university’s Homecoming events. A graduate school float even made its inaugural appearance in the parade. “It’s very easy to be an invisible grad student on this campus,” Medina said. “We have to remind this university that there are [about 3,000] of us … and that just because you don’t always see us, does not mean we do not need services.”

Singles should save the anger, spread the love alentine’s Day has gained a negative reputation among the single population. I hear the same complaints every year; it’s a “Hallmark Holiday,” or a day for couples to brag about being happy. Many have even dubbed AMANDA WOOD the holiday as “Singles’ SENIOR Awareness Day.” COLUMNIST This last attitude toward Valentine’s Day is the most telling. It insinuates that being single on the day of love is some sort of failure and hints at discontentment about being alone. This attitude needs to change. College students are in a transitional time of life. There is nothing wrong with being single at this age or, for that matter, with being in a relationship. There is no “right” stage that everyone should be in.

BUSINESS MANAGER Tara Kleppinger

With that in mind, let’s stop shaming couples that are happy with their romantic lives. There’s nothing quite like a jealous friend to ruin your Valentine’s Day buzz. Lashing out at the couples on Valentine’s Day won’t make anyone less single, and it can hurt people in the process. Lovers aren’t looking down on singles with pity; they’re simply trying to enjoy the day together. Instead of putting those couples down, let’s collectively decide to be happy for them. Relationships are work, after all, and they deserve a day to celebrate what they have accomplished. If you’re truly unhappy about being single on Valentine’s Day, think of it as a chance to re-evaluate your romantic situation. Without being negative and self-critical, consider how your choices have contributed to your single status. Is there something you can change to set yourself up to meet new people? Is it just bad luck?

After some self-reflection, make Valentine’s Day resolutions for the year. Set goals for yourself, whether it is to ask someone out on a date or just to become friendlier with the gender to which you’re attracted. Like anything else, make these goals realistic and attainable, that way you can feel good about putting in effort to achieve your goal. Finally, be sure to enjoy the holiday. Spend time with friends, watch your favorite movies, or have a “me” day and treat yourself to whatever makes you feel good. Resolve to be a happy single this Valentine’s Day. Amanda Wood is a junior majoring in ecosystem science and policy.

For the people who still believe in romance and have someone who shares that optimism, Valentine’s Day might be the best day of the year. Others would rather not leave the house to avoid the cheaply marketed, artificially sweetened, madness-inducing illusions of love. If you’re sailing through the tunnel of love or binging on Netflix and chalky conversation hearts, music is a faithful companion.

strawberries, who’s to say you can’t do the same?

You may have noticed the copious amounts of red-packaged candy on sale at Publix, or seen an ad for the annual fraternity singing valentines, or fought your way through swarms of heart-shaped balloons in CVS, and realized that can only mean one thing. Valentine’s Day is coming. You might be excited, because it’s a chance to spend time with your significant other or connect with a crush. Or you might be single and dreading the holiday altogether. It’s easy to feel left out on Valentine’s Day if you’re single, but couples aren’t the only ones who can have fun on the fourteenth. Check out The Miami Hurricane’s list of great activities for singles to try out this V-Day

TRY OUT SOME FUN “DATE” ACTIVITIES Just because you’re flying solo doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a day out. Take advantage of Miami’s location and gorgeous weather and hit the beach. Or go to an art museum, like the Perez, which just opened up downtown. This can actually be more fun solo or with artsy friends, because you can spend time on what you’re interested in without trying to impress someone. For a fresh nature feel, check out a local zoo or aquarium – because animals need love, too.

ENJOY THE SALES Since many stores have Valentine’s Day sales, take the day to do some shopping. Money can’t buy love, but shopping can make you feel pretty awesome in the meantime. When you’re done at the mall, satisfy your sweet tooth with the sales on candy and sweets. If couples are buying each other chocolate-covered

or stay in and watch movies. You can even throw an anti-Valentine’s Day party. Without hating on the couples enjoying the holiday, celebrate your independence with other singles and dance the night away. Spending time with friends is a great way to unwind and celebrate without feeling any romantic pressure. FOCUS ON YOURSELF Release some good-feeling endorphins by getting some exercise. Attend a fitness class, go for a run, do yoga, lift, or do whatever fits your fancy. Or have a spa day and pamper yourself. Get manipedis, give yourself a facial, break out the cucumber slices or do whatever else makes you feel refreshed. Worry about only what makes you feel good.

KEEP THINGS FESTIVE AND SWEET To really make the day seem like a holiday, hit the kitchen and whip up some sweet treats. Baking is a fantastic way to break out of a usual routine and get your creativity flowing. Of course, eating your masterpiece will only contribute to the feeling of celebration.

FAMILY FIRST Remember the ones who love you more than anyone, and take the time to Skype or call your family. With everyone’s busy schedules, who knows when you’ll have the chance to do so again?

FASHION

Fashion to fit any emergency BY ALEXANDRA DIBACCO CONTRIBUTING EDGE WRITER

Every girl knows the feeling of being hours away from a date with nothing to wear. A date is about more than just how you look, but you might need to feel good about your outfit to be confident during the date. The Miami Hurricane has put together a list of the top five stores to check out during those date night outfit emergencies. ANTHROPOLOGIE Located both in the Village of Merrick Park and at the Dadeland Mall, Anthropologie can be somewhat pricey, but it is always worth it. The store is known for its natural tones and copious amounts of dainty bows and frills. We especially love the tailored silk dresses because they look good on almost anyone and can easily be paired with a cotton sweater and sandals, or a blazer and wedges. The best thing about this store is its accessories. Go to Anthropologie to find little trinkets like pins and necklaces that can elevate an otherwise drab outfit into something date-worthy. BEBE This store is also found in Merrick Park and at the Dadeland Mall. This is the place to find sophisticated silk halter tops, colored skinny jeans and, of course, that little black dress. An outfit from Bebe is reasonably priced and perfect for the city chic Miami girl to wear to a dinner date at a fancy restaurant. 8

FRANCESCA’S COLLECTION Even though this store has only one location near UM in Merrick Park, it’s completely worth the trip. This scenic boutique always uses quality fabric at a relatively inexpensive price; you can get a whole outfit for under $100. It’s a cheaper and trendier version of Anthropologie, but quality isn’t sacrificed. Our seasonal favorites are the strapless brocade dress, the embroidered peasant top – in a deep blue or white – and the sequined skirts that Francesca’s is known for. J. CREW Also located at the Village of Merrick Park and at Dadeland, J. Crew is a definite stop for the preppier girl. The prices are more expensive, but these items are classic and can be worn again and again. Our favorite pieces are the sleeveless floral halter top, the stretch cotton pants and the pleated silk dress. AMERICAN EAGLE Located in Sunset place, American Eagle is the perfect place to find girly dresses and skirts that are still casual. If you have a dinner date at an informal restaurant, we definitely recommend stopping here. Our favorites of the season are the mesh halter dress (in either light pink or cream) and the crochet crinkle tank. This is also the perfect place to get cheap accessories like infinity scarves, aviator glasses, informal chandelier earrings and long statement necklaces.

A YEAR MAKES...

WOMEN’S GOLF The Miami women’s golf team had a successful showing at the UCF Challenge, placing third behind two top-25 teams. The Canes, currently ranked No. 33 in the nation, wrapped up play on Tuesday with their fourth topthree finish of the season.

STORY BY SPENCER DANDES | SPORTS EDITOR DESIGN BY JASSENIA RODRIGUEZ To call it "rebuilding" might undermine the effort coach Jim Larranaga and his 2014 Hurricanes have put into this season. But there is quite a difference between Miami's current state of affairs and its dominant 2013 campaign. The Canes sit at 12-12, a far cry from their 21-3 record through 24 games last season. Miami hasn't appeared in the rankings for a single week, and its roster – full of veterans in 2013 – is young and still developing. Take a look at some of the major scoring and production changes when comparing the 2013 ACC Championship team with the 2014 squad.

freshman on the roster, compared with just two last year.

“The pin placement was tougher, the winds picked up, but we held our ground,” coach Patti Rizzo said. “We didn’t play great, but we didn’t play terrible either. Third place is not bad out of 19 teams.” Two of Miami’s golfers shot under par for the tournament – Leticia Ras-Anderica and Daniela Darquea each posted 2-under (214) combined scores. Overall, the Hurricanes shot even par (864), which trailed only No. 24 UCF (7-under 857) and No. 22 Iowa State (6-under 858) in the team standings. Miami will host its annual invitational March 3-5 at the Biltmore Golf Course in Coral Gables.

double-digit scorer (Rion Brown, 14.5 ppg). Miami had three players average 10 points per game or more last year.

HALL OF FAME The College Baseball Foundation announced Tuesday that two former Hurricanes were selected as part of the 2014 Hall of Fame class. Pitcher Alex Fernandez and slugger Mike Fiore will join five other inductees to the National College Baseball Hall of Fame in June. Fernandez was a first-team All-American as a freshman in 1989, a stellar season that included a no hitter. He played professionally for the Chicago Cubs and the Florida Marlins. Fiore was an integral part of the Canes’ run to the 1985 College World Series title. He was a starter for four years at Miami and went on to play for team USA, where he won a gold medal at the 1988 Seoul Olympics.

V, DEAR V Does real world mean heartbreak ...

I’ve been in a relationship for about a year now. We met when we were juniors and hit it off right away. The problem is, we have very different plans for when we graduate in May. I want to go to law school in Chicago and he wants to move to Seattle for a job. I’m scared we won’t be able to make it work, and I don’t know if I should even try having a long distance relationship with him. I love him a lot and we’re great together, but I just don’t know. What do I do? Going the distance

Dear Drew Barrymore, This is the classic tale of boy meets girl, boy falls in love with girl, and then boy and girl have very different life plans. It happens. For four years we’re in this little bubble of fraternity parties, late-night library stints and bar crawls, and we think that’s what real life is about ... until we graduate and realize that our dayto-day schedules are concrete, and skipping class “just because” isn’t an option. On the one hand, it’s good that the two of you have lofty life goals. At the very least, you know you won’t end up living under a bridge somewhere, so that’s good. If you’re asking me, I say that long distance relationships seldom work out. But that doesn’t mean it’s not worth trying to work out. At the risk of sounding like a self-help book, I’m gonna say this: If the relationship

is good, then try and make it work. It’s going to be tough and you’re going to have to work through difficult things, but just stick through it. Granted, you’ll have to endure some awkward phone sex conversations and figure out if naked Skyping is really your thing. At the end of the day, Justin Long will always be there to get you surprise tickets to your favorite indie band. V
