Debate team competes worldwide

Law school hosts carnival

International tournament to be held in the spring BY DAVID O’CONNELL CONTRIBUTING NEWS WRITER

The official University of Miami Debate Team is currently ranked 8th in the nation, according to the American Forensic Association and the National Debate Tournament. “The debate is completely immersive and demands a lot of time and commitment,” said David Steinberg, director of the debate team. “Debate is divided into different skill levels. Most of our debaters are novices. Thankfully, college debate is set up in an effective way for learning, so the new people are not competing against the experts. In the rankings, a win is a win.” The competitive debate program trains all year long on a topic and competes in tournaments 12 to 15 times a year with the goal of a National Championship. The rankings are based on a point system, granting points to the top overall performing teams. The debate team competes against schools around the nation and globe. “Last year, we went to Ireland and this year Ali, the vice president of the debate team, is going to Shehnai, India for the World’s University Debate Tournament,”

Steinberg said. UM will also host the Pan American Debate Tournament in January. The Pan American Tournament will be the first of its kind as schools from Latin America are sending their top debaters to compete at the university. Debates will be held in English and Spanish. The debate team also attempts to serve and inspire students in less advantaged schools throughout the Miami-Dade school system through the Urban Debate League. The team’s project works to promote debate among high school students in urban areas. During the summer, the team also hosted the Miami Debate Institute, where high school students came in to learn the fundamentals of debate. The team hoped to facilitate and give the students a chance to participate, as students who do debate are more likely to graduate, get better grades and get into college, according to junior Spencer George who has been in the club for two years. “It’s one thing to be able to talk about changes we need to make and what we should do,” he said. “It’s an entirely different thing to go out and make a difference in the world.” Any undergraduate student can join the team. Participation on the team can be taken for academic credit as part of the course COS 304, intercollegiate debate theory and practice. The credit can be taken up to eight times.

Elementary students join BY LAINEY MEIRI CONTRIBUTING NEWS WRITER

Law school students will close their books Friday for the annual Canes Carnival. The University of Miami School of Law will host the carnival from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m., inviting third and fourth grade students from Edison Park K-8 Center, a local high-needs elementary school. “Canes Carnival is designed to do several things,” said Marni Lennon, faculty adviser to the law school’s Society of Bar and Gavel and assistant dean of the law school’s public interest and pro bono programs. “First, to bring kids from the community to campus for an afternoon of fun, and second to remind students that aside from their stud-

ies they have a responsibility to give back.” Canes Carnival is led by the Society of Bar and Gavel, an honor society. “It’s so much fun,” said Lauren Pettiette, vice president of Bar and Gavel. “We usually do a sponge booth, so it’s really funny to see the kids get so excited about hitting one of their friends in the face with a sponge.” Several student organizations from the law school will have booths for the kids to enjoy, including a bean bag toss, a relay event, musical chairs and arts and crafts.

ADMINISTRATION

Coral Gables Commission, university discuss partnership Agreement makes way for progress BY ALEXANDER GONZALEZ NEWS EDITOR

City of Coral Gables Commission met with University of Miami administration Tuesday in a public meeting as part of the Development Agreement that was passed in 2010. The Development Agreement was intended to engage in a better rapport between the city and the university in regards to the welfare of Gables citizens and the UM’s community. The agreement lays out campus improvements, and Gables citizens can take advantage of the university’s cultural and athletic activities. As part of the agreement, Gables officials agreed to meet with UM Board of Trustees to update each other on the program’s progress. Trustee Leonard Abess described the agreement as “critical for all of us.” On UM’s part, President Donna E. Shalala, Joe Natoli and Board of Trustees members attended. For the city, Coral Gables Mayor Jim Cason, City Manager Pat Salerno and city commissioners were present. Among the discussed updates, Natoli, UM vice president for business and finance, described the effect of UM’s Mobility Plan. Traffic in residential

areas was reduced to 28 percent, from 2011 to the present. There was also a 37 percent average reduction in peak traffic volumes near residential areas from 1992 to 2013. Natoli also reviewed the university’s infrastructure projects like the finished construction of the Student Activities Center (SAC), the Schwartz Athletic Center and the Neuroscience Building and Health Annex located next to the Cox Science Center. Salerno then discussed improvements in the city, which include seven additional police officers and various renovations to roads. Gables is competing against 13 other cities in the United Nations-endorsed LivCom Awards that recognize the Most Livable City. Though the university and the city praised each other’s efforts throughout the meeting, Salerno shared one concern: the lack of onion rings at the Rat. After the meeting, the Rat added an item to the menu as a special called the SalernORINGS. “We’re happy to revive the onion rings item on the Rat menu, and dub them ‘SalernORINGS’ in honor of our esteemed alumnus and City Manager for our home city of Coral Gables, Pat Salerno,” said Patricia Whitely, UM vice president for Student Affairs.

PROFILE

Professor, scientist reels in shark research Students, community learn through hands-on experience BY LAURA VANDER MEIDEN CONTRIBUTING NEWS WRITER

A typical Bahamian vacation includes sunny beaches, fruity drinks and ultimate relaxation. But not for one University of Miami professor. Neil Hammerschlag, shark scientist, spends his time chasing the ocean’s toothier inhabitants that many beachgoers would prefer to avoid. On a recent three and a half day trip, Hammerschlag caught, tagged and released more than 20 sharks, many of which were more than 13 feet long. He called it “a very successful trip.” It wasn’t just experienced scientists on board, though. Through his organization, the R.J. Dunlap Marine Conservation Program, Hammerschlag gives high school students and other citizen scientists the opportunity to get up close and personal with the oceans’ top predators. The program is a unique blend of outreach and cutting-edge research. When conducting projects that vary from analyzing the levels of mercury in shark fin soup to discovering the intricacies of tiger shark pregnancy, Hammerschlag has made sure that citizen participants don’t just go through the motions of data collection. Every GPS coordinate, tissue sample and measurement gathered is used in current graduate student research projects. “Hammerschlag doesn’t want research to stay within the scientific community,” said Kyra Hartog, a senior who has interned with the program for the last four years. “He wants to expand that knowledge to anyone interested.” Fiona Graham, a former intern and one of Hammerschlag’s current master’s students, agrees. “Dr. Hammerschlag is one of those types of people where nothing is out of the question,” Graham said. “You need something, and his answer is always ‘yes, we can make that happen, let’s do it.’ It’s that ambition, I think, that has gotten the program to where it is today, and keeps it constantly evolving and reaching for that next step.”

THE MIAMI HURRICANE

During outreach programs on the R/V Endsley, the main research vessel used by the program, Hammerschlag often pulls sharks several times his size onto the specialized loading platform at the back of the boat. The ease with which Hammerschlag handles the sharks seems almost innate. He readily admits that is not the case. During his first shark dive at the age of 15, he remembers being torn between nerves and fascination, anxiously working to keep up with the trip’s dive master. “I wouldn’t say I fear them, but I have a healthy respect for them,” he said. “It is important to remember that they are a top predator.” Though Hammerschlag has always been interested in the oceans, the native South African was landlocked at the age of 7 when his family moved to Canada. His love of the ocean was limited to summer vacations and summer internships once he started his studies at University of Toronto. It was at an internship for a shark research program in California that Hammerschlag’s passion came about. “I realized this is my calling, and I kind of never looked back,” he said. He continued on to get his master’s in marine biology at Nova Southeastern University and his Ph.D. in marine biology and fisheries at UM. After earning his doctorate in 2009, Hammerschlag was hired by UM as a research assistant professor. His main focus is research and the RJ Dunlap program, but he also teaches a graduate course in marine conservation biology. Hammerschlag has created research opportunities for both undergraduate and graduate marine science students that allow the students to discover shark research much the same way that he first did. But these students would argue that they have received much more than time studying shark; they have also received a lifelong mentor and friend. “Neil has been one of the biggest influences on my life,” said Emily Nelson, a junior and second-year R.J. Dunlap intern. “He completely invests in his students and will do everything he can to help them succeed.”

We break the wishbone and whoever gets the larger piece of the wishbone has good luck the rest of the year.

fter witnessing the parade of partial nudity this past Halloween, something just didn’t sit right with me. The stark contrast between my former life as a Rhode Islander and my current life as a Miami student became blaringly obvious. When I first made the transition as a freshman, I had absolutely no idea what I was in for. What shocked me most about the change was that, while my workload seemed to quadruple, the extent to which my clothing JAMIE SERVIDIO CONTRIBUTING covered my skin seemed to shrink by a third. COLUMNIST It wasn’t because I wanted to show off my rockin’ bod. Also, I had no intention of attracting fraternity guys. Maybe it’s the nature of Miami, or maybe it’s just the nature of college in general. But, simply put, that’s just how everyone around me was dressing. And to avoid sticking out like a sore thumb, I followed the unspoken dress code my peers had defined for me. Without even realizing it, I had been sucked into the vortex of Miami culture. I was constantly worried about my appearance. I tried to look presentable for class, and I even started wearing make up regularly – something I laughed at girls for doing in high school.

I wasn’t equipped to respond to statements like, “Oh my god. I feel so fat,” or “I can’t eat today,” because never before had I cared about my weight. As long as I was happily hoarding potato chips down my throat, I was (and still am) a happy girl. But the year progressed, and I saw beautiful girls work out three times a day, take medicine that would prevent hunger and even make themselves sick to feel skinny. In Miami, it is especially dangerous for girls to succumb to these unspoken social constraints regarding body image and weight. Eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of any mental illness, and the severity of an individual’s disorder can rapidly increase in environments that promote the importance of being skinny and fit. Girls, if you are reading this, no guy is ever worth the effort if you feel like you need to starve yourself to get his attention. You know you want that big ol’ bacon cheeseburger, and you know damn well how great it tastes with some curly fries. Guys, if you’re reading this, grow up, because quite frankly, I’m sick of giving up meat to be treated like a piece of one.

BY MARLEE LISKER STAFF WRITER

For most of us, college is a balancing act. There are classes, homework, clubs, meetings, tutoring – not to mention the everpresent temptations that South Florida offers. But for sophomore Ariel Snihur, college isn’t just about making time for a Starbucks fix before psych – it’s about balancing a full-blown musical career with being a full-time college student. Ariel Snihur, or Ariel Rose as she’s known in the music world, is a student at the Frost School of Music. She has also released a full-length album, along with several other singles, and is a regular performer throughout Florida. November marked the release of the music video for her song, “Get Somebody Up (On the Dance Floor),” a pop track with an infectious beat. The Miami Hurricane got the chance to sit down with Snihur to talk about her career and how she copes with being a singer and a student.

POP TO OPERA Snihur has been pursuing music from the time she was 6 years old. Growing up, she sang pop and musical theater all around her hometown of Miami. In fact, she released her first CD, “Rhythms of Life,” when she was just 15. The CD showcases Snihur’s strong pop vibe and the Latin influence of Miami, with singing in both English and Spanish. It was produced by Juan Vincente Zambrano, who was nominated for several Latin Grammy awards. However, Snihur also has an interest in an entirely different genre of music. “I was taking lessons with my vocal coach down here and he said, ‘Oh, why don’t you try singing some opera,’” recalled the singer. At first, she was not too keen on the idea. However, opera became an important part of

her life and her music. She even chose to study it here at UM. “Opera is the best training you could possibly get,” Snihur added. CHASING OPPORTUNITIES Described on her website as the “‘Go To’ Girl for the National Anthem,” Snihur regularly performs at sporting events for teams such as the Marlins and the Panthers, as well as at many other venues around Florida. Snihur has also had the opportunity to not only attend the Latin Grammy awards twice, but to perform at one of the Latin Grammy street parties in New York and walk the carpet. These experiences have made singing in front of a stadium second-nature. “If there’s three people, I’ll get a little bit nervous, but if there’s 20, 30, 40,000 people, I’m so calm,” she said. Nov. 21 - Dec. 4, 2013

UNDER PRESSURE However, the life of an artist does have its struggles. In addition to balancing the chaotic schedule of a musician, Snihur is taking 12 classes this semester at Frost and is a sister of the sorority Alpha Delta Pi. “I go crazy, honestly,” admitted Snihur of her hectic schedule. But she continues to balance a professional and academic career well while recording and performing. Doing so requires constant focus and effort. “Even when I’m about to sing at a stadium, I’ll be writing an essay right before I go on,” she said with a laugh. To find out about upcoming performances and see the video for “Get Somebody Up (On the Dance Floor),” check out Snihur’s website, iamarielrose. com.

powder tastes good too. You can even add egg wash to make it brown better. Cook in oven at 375 degrees for 45 minutes. Add American cheese at the end for the last five minutes or so, so it melts and hopefully kind of rehardens and browns a little. You can even just add it on when it’s out of the oven, and it’ll melt on its own.

FOOTBALL

Miami’s seniors hit the field for final home game Canes try to rebound after losing streak BY KRISTEN SPILLANE STAFF WRITER

At noon Saturday, the Miami Hurricanes (7-3, 3-3 ACC) will kick off at Sun Life Stadium for the final time this season against the Virginia Cavaliers (2-8, 0-6 ACC). Despite the heartbreak of three consecutive losses, this game is not about the rankings or national media attention, but rather a celebration of 26 Hurricanes marching onto their home field one last time. It’s an opportunity for Miami’s senior leaders to cement their mark on Hurricane history. Quarterback Stephen Morris is one of only four 7,000-yard passers in program history and will look to continue to rack up big stats through the air. Wide receiver Allen Hurns needs 161 yards to post the fourth 1,000-yard receiving season in school history. Traditionally, the Cavaliers evoke a collective groan of dread from fellow seniors. While the overall series is tied 5-5 (2-2 in games played on Miami’s home field), Virginia has won the last three meetings. This year, there is at least one swing in the Hurricanes’ favor: Senior defensive tackle Justin Renfrow will line up on Miami’s side. A former Cavalier, Renfrow has consistently made his presence felt since transferring to UM from Virginia. He forced a fumble and had a season-high six tackles against Georgia Tech, a number he matched last week at Duke. “We needed guys that could come in and help us. Justin is a very inquisitive kid, very bright kid, he has brought some maturity there – not just physical, but mental maturity,” coach Al Golden said. “Whatever ways they parted on, we’ve really never talked about it. It’s always been about what he’s going to do to help us, getting a graduate degree at Miami and all that. It wasn’t about where he left and even this week, he’s just trying to get ready to play.”

It’s a moment we all can relate to. The moment we will cherish with nostalgia as it passes. This senior class has made it through the darkest of days shrouded by NCAA woes and subpar play on the field. But the seniors stuck together and prevailed, clear into the path of the Golden era. This 2013 season is only the beginning of Miami’s return to greatness. Saturday might remind us exactly what it means to be a Cane. From across

Florida, the United States and the globe, innumerable factors drew us to the U. There’s nothing more uniting for our diverse student body than a fierce Sebastian spell-out. Few things can match the energy of our Hurricanes rushing through the legendary smoke. Try to match the pride you feel when you raise an index finger and sing the alma mater, win or lose. As Hurricanes, we’ve grown up, discovered our passions and built a legacy that is all our own – on the field, in the classroom and in the community. Celebrate it together, seniors, one last time.

Nov. 21 - Dec. 4, 2013

“They stood with us when it was really hard,” Golden said, reflecting on his veteran core. “I know for the most part it’s over now, but there really weren’t many days where they could see the future in the last two years, the last 28 months. Those guys, I’m really proud of them for the way they’ve delivered us through this. They’ve adopted somebody else’s problem as their own. They fought through it, they resolved it and they’re allowing us to move forward now. I just want to make sure everyone in our organization understands how pivotal that was for us, and that we send them off the right way.”

V, DEAR V

I was pretty excited because I asked this guy I thought was cute if he wanted to go to semi-formal with me. He said yes. But, I have a problem: I don’t want to go with him anymore. I’m scared he’ll be a boring date. What do I do? Is it too late to back out? What would I even tell him? Help! Sincerely, Bored and Alone

I want a new toy ...

Dear Bridget Jones, If you keep trying to find something better, you’ll never be content with what’s right in front of you. I agree, Hugh Grant is a bad boy and he’s so much more exciting than Colin Firth at first – but when you really get down to the nitty gritty, he’s a two-timing manwhore who never cared about Renee Zellweger in the first place. The fact of the matter is: If you invited him, you have to stick to it. Just because he may be a bit boring through texts or Facebook messages doesn’t mean that this behavior will translate to the dance f loor. Large crowds and liquid courage often help people loosen up and have a good time, and there’s no reason why the same won’t be true for this guy. If you’re absolutely dead set on uninviting him, then just tell him that your best friend wants you to take her boyfriend’s friend because

she doesn’t want him to feel awkward with a bunch of girls. Or tell him that you got malaria and then magically get better 24 hours before the party. “I’m cured,” you’ll say as you load the bus with your roommate’s hot brother. I would own up to your initial decision and go with this guy. Who knows? Maybe he’ll turn out to be one real weird motherfu*&^r. Just don’t wear a super tight leather bunny outfit to Easter brunch. That ain’t cute for nobody. V
