Customers wait for food outside Snoopy’s Hot Dogs & More on Monday. Snoopy’s has various locations in the Raleigh and surrounding areas. It almost serves as a past-time for many loyal customers.

Snoopy’s enjoys rich history Snoopy’s is a cornerstone of Raleigh tradition, with colorful personalities and cheap homemade food. Katie Sanders Staff Writer

The very first Snoopy’s started in a gas station, and the food was home-cooked. Now there are five different restaurants, and the little franchise has become a Raleigh tradition. Steve Webb grew up in Raleigh while his father worked printing Technician at the State College, N.C. State’s name prior to 1963. He became a student at N.C. State himself. After he left he started a little restaurant he called Snoopy’s. It first opened in 1978, said Webb, who opened it for only $6,000. Snoopy’s was completely a homegrown business. Webb started off as the cook using his home utensils, having learned from working at his uncle’s barbeque restaurant. “I had a house refrigerator and a chest freezer,” Webb said. The restaurant was an immedi-

Engineering for a better healthcare system N.C. State systems engineers look to optimize healthcare via mathematical modeling.

N.C. State students and faculty from the Edward P. Fitts Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering are working to find better solutions for healthcare issues faced by hospitals. Associate professor Julie Ivy and teaching assistant professor Anita Vila-Parish are working on research that involves inventory management in the hospitals.

“The research that I and Dr. Ivy have been involved with is optimizing the inventory for pharmaceutical products that are inside of hospitals,” Vila-Parish said. She also explained the reasons as to why that can be so difficult. “It is a very complex process to manage that inventory which is maintained by a Hospital’s pharmacy for a couple of reasons,” Vila-Parish said. “One, many hospitals carry as many as 2,000 different medications. Secondly, many of them are perishable and once you mix them you have to use them within a few hours depending on the stability of the substance.” According to Vila-Parish, this means medications cannot be pre-

pared in large batches as it is unreasonable to expect them to be used by the end of the day. If the medications are not used, hospitals have to throw them out, which has serious cost implications. Because of this, their research methodology involves linking the condition of patients and the demand for key medications. “What we are trying to do is to create a link between the number of patients that are admitted to the hospital at any day, and look at their condition as a marker for what their demand would be for a set of key medications identified by the hospitals.

academic program, said. “The mathematicians can speak with philosophers; the philosophers can speak to the agriculturists.” The latest revision of the general education program has it reduced to only 39 hours now, according to Freeman. “I think general education requirements are a good thing, just for the simple fact that you can’t specialize in one thing and not know anything about anything else,” Caroline Higgins, a freshman in business administration with a marketing concentration, said. Most students utilize the process of having a course doublecount to save money and credit hours. “If you’re in math or science, all the science courses, all the math courses that you take as part of your major, in most cases, will count toward general education,” Ambrose said. “The courses on the other side of campus, so to speak, the humanities and social sciences, will have the same arrangement.” The number of extra courses required for students are usually between 20 to 25 credit hours, Ambrose added. Mahogany Woods, a senior in international studies, questioned their relevancy. “I don’t always enjoy [general education courses] because some of them I’m not interested in, such as chemistry; I hate periodic tables and things like

that,” Woods said. “I don’t think I’ll ever use it in my major. Some make you wellrounded, and some are just a waste of time.” The additional breadth category, however, cannot be used to double count a course; it forces engineering students to actually take that humanities course, Freeman said. “I don’t mind that I have to do that. I’m happy with the fact that I have to take other classes that aren’t in my intended major because I like learning about new things,” Higgins said. According to Ambrose, close looks at employer surveys indicated that N.C. State students are preferred over others in the research triangle. “Sixty-five percent of the employers, they were saying N.C. State is the first choice for hiring students. Not Duke, not Wake Forest, not Chapel Hill, but N.C. State,” Ambrose said. “They want a student that has a disciplinary background, but they also want a student that’s broadly educated, so general education actually improves your job prospects.” All of the Council of Undergraduate Education meetings are open for students to attend. Friday’s meeting will take place in Park Shops, Room 200.

Bass also said he does not believed Geter deserves to be charged with anything in relation to the crash. “He had no control over how it was used or what people did; it’s not like he was there. I could see being in trouble for buying it, but nothing besides that,” Bass said. Aaron Melton, senior in science education, had a different opinion about the charges. Melton, who is over 21 himself, said that he would personally not buy alcohol for underage people due to the possibility of being charged. “No, I wouldn’t buy alcohol for anyone. There’s too much risk involved,” Melton said. While Melton maintained that he would not purchase any alcohol for underage people, he did say people who want to drink underage will most likely find a way to do it. “People today just want to drink, and they’ll do anything to get their hands on it,” Melton said. Sughrue said he hopes people can take something positive from this negative event. “It was certainly a tragic event, and if any good can come from it, it would be that it would help somebody else reconsider their decisions,” Sughrue said.

decision making,” Denton said. “My research group is working on a number of different projects, including the development of computational models for optimization of treatment decisions to reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke, and models for designing methods that use diagnostic tests to screen for cancer.” Denton added that currently, N.C. State students both at undergraduate and graduate levels are involved in the research. Knowledge of operations research, computers and math is needed in order to solve such a problem, according to Denton. Jennifer Mason, PhD student working under Dr. Denton, said that she focuses on helping diabetes patients. “My dissertation is looking at optimal treatment of diabetes patients based on their age, gender and also their probability of facing adverse events like heart attacks,” Mason said. She added that industrial engineers are involved in the process, as they can apply traditional methods of manufacturing to healthcare problems.

were bought and modified because the rent was cheap and the crowd was good, according to Steve Webb. “We’ve always enjoyed the business from N.C. State, especially after the ball games,” Sarah Webb said. They get a good nigh crowd from the University too. “We call it the bar rush; the bars close at 2 a.m., so we figure we’ll stay open to at least 3 a.m. It’s entertaining just to people-watch there,” Larry Cerilli, one of the new owners of Snoopy’s, said. The Webbs are currently in the process of “passing the baton,” as they put it, to two new owners, Larry and Casey Cerilli. Casey Cerilli grew up in Raleigh, and her love of Snoopy’s and her friendship with the owners got the Cerilli’s involved. They were con-

vinced to partner up in the business when they realized how many people in Raleigh knew about and habitually went to Snoopy’s. “I think the coolest thing I ever see is a mom and dad with their kid and the tailgate down in the truck, sharing a hotdog, fries and soda,” Larry Cerilli said. “[The store has] memories of what someone might have done in college or growing up.” Even though the restaurant has expanded, it has managed to keep its family-style feel, both for the customers and the employees. “I brought my children here, and now we’re bringing our grandchildren here,” said Robin Godwin, a stay-at-home mother. She said she’s been eating there since 1978. “My parent’s ate at Snoopy’s when they were going to school,” Max Lewis, a freshman in material science and engineering, said. He likes the hotdogs, but went more because of the family ties. “We just have fun. We really do,” said Gabe Bird, the man-

{Our view}

The Facts:

This week, Anthony Du Juan Carter was charged with buying alcohol for minors, two students at Millbrook High School. Garrett Prince, one of the students, crashed his car while drinking and driving. Due to the accident, his passenger, Elizabeth Malloy, died.

Our Opinion:

This unfortunate accident could have been avoided if those involved with the issue had been following the law and taken safety measures.

Be safe and follow the law T

his week, 21-year-old Anthony Du Juan Carter was charged with buying alcohol for two minors who are juniors at Millbrook High School. Garrett Prince, one of the students, crashed his car while speeding. He has been charged with drinking and driving, a felony of death by vehicle, careless and reckless driving, having an open container of liquid, speed, and possession of marijuana. His passenger, Elizabeth Malloy, died from injuries pertaining to the crash. This unfortunate situation could have easily been avoided had those involved been following the law and taken safety measures. The problem could have been avoided entirely if Carter

had been following the law. Anyone who is of the legal drinking age is not allowed to buy alcohol for minors. That’s the law. Even though purchasing alcohol for minors may seem harmless, consequences can be severe if something like this were to happen. We advise N.C. State students to avoid buying alcohol for their friends or siblings under the age of 21 in order to prevent possible accidents like this. Of course, Carter didn’t follow the law, but there are still ways this problem could have been avoided. The students should not have been drink-

ing if they were under the age of 21. Regardless of that being against the law, they made some poor choices after drinking. If you’re drinking, then a ride should already be arranged to take you home. Even if you’re 21 or older, drinking and driving is illegal. You could put your life in danger as well as the lives of your passengers and other people on the road. If you’re going to drink, be smart about it and don’t drive. Also, don’t get in a car with anyone who is drunk and planning on driving. Even if that person seems capable of

driving, it’s safer to avoid the situation entirely. One thing you could do is make sure someone sober has your and your friends’ keys before you start drinking. By doing this, you will ensure you don’t drive drunk, even if it seems like a good idea at the time. The loss of Elizabeth Malloy, a teenager, is extremely unfortunate, and our thoughts are with her family at this time. But this accident didn’t have to happen. By following the law and taking extra measures to ensure your and your friends’ safety, you can have a good time without worrying about unfortunate consequences.


Living in the shadows


e’ve all experienced t h at fe el i ng of knowing that one day, when it’s all said and done, we’ll be compared to someone in our family. Our parents will never come right out and say, “Oh why c a n ’t y o u be like your older brother.” Or, “Your sister did well Nijah i n s c ho o l , Toshumba so why can’t Staff Columnist you? ” They d o n’t s a y these things because our parents want us to feel good about ourselves and what we’re doing. But we all know, in the back of their heads, that they want their kids to be as successful as the ones before and those after. In some ways I believe our parents put us in a competition to see which child can accomplish most become the most successful. I know this very well. It’s never spoken of in my family, but my siblings and I know there clearly is a contest to make our parents the most proud. We each try to set the bar higher than t he last to prove to our parents that w e ’r e t h e smartest, or most athletic, in the family. It was watching my eldest sister receiving her Master’s degree when I finally noticed how proud my father was at that moment. I finally realized that to get the same reaction from my father, I have to do something just as great or even better. I’d have a long way to go if I started comparing myself to my sister. She’s has a master’s degree in the medical field, a family of her own, and works at a very well-known hospital. I have some seriously big shoes to fill in what seems like a short amount of time. What makes it even worse-and I’m sure plenty of y‘all can understand my pain--is that I’m the youngest. People don’t expect you to be as successful as your siblings because

you’re used to being “babied” your whole life. This is especially a problem when your parents excuse any mistakes you may make because you’re the “baby.” And when you’re the baby, it’s okay. But in my family it’s not okay to screw up just because you’re the baby. It makes me want to work 10 times harder to prove to everyone—especially my siblings—that I’m capable of doing bigger and better things than all of them combined. You may think I’m this selfish person who only wants to brag about how obviously better I am than my siblings, but that’s far from the case. Instead, I just want to verify that I need no one to hold my hand in order to do great things. I’m sure we all have one sibling in our family who’s glorified as though he or she is a superstar who could do no wrong. We seem to be merely average in the eyes of our parents and to the rest of the family. There always seems to be an older brot her or sister who’s been declared a “ b e a s t ” at academics or the star of the football field, and the younger sibling is simply the child that gets decent grades and never really shines at any sport. Yes, I understand that I go to N.C. State and that is a great accomplishment in and of itself, but looking at the big picture and how much unintentional pressure my other siblings have placed on me, attending N.C. State is something expected of me rather than an accomplishment to those in my family.

Individual elections, global change


ello, 2012. Isn’t it a bit too late for that? Yes it is, but this being my first article for Technician this year, I couldn’t think of a more natural way to start my column. It’s three weeks into the semest e r n ow, and hardly anything Shivalik feels new. Daga Everyone Staff Columnist is back to long nights, tiring classes, mechanical routines and spontaneous bursts of anger, hunger, sleep and frustration. Things have largely fallen into place for us as we slowly fall back into our routines this semester. Yet there is something new: 2012 is set to be the year of global change, or collapse, depending on the events that play out in the months ahead. Starting this March, the leadership of at least five major countries of the world will be up for grabs. Presidential elections are scheduled this year for Russia, France and the United States. China is set to receive a change in leadership—a formal exercise that takes place only once in 10 years. India will see a crucial round of state elections.

It’s indeed rare to have a conf luence of such major global events, all set to happen within a few months of each other. These elections will directly impact 3.07 billion people— nearly half the earth’s population—and millions of others indirectly. Given how globally interconnected people’s lives are today, one could propose that these five elections have the power to impact almost every individual on earth. Historically, great crises have produced great leaders, but sadly, the crisis of 2008 has shown the frailty of the current global leadership. Despite the U.S.’s economic crisis spreading throughout the world, response was at best national or regional. Up until last year, people in Europe were unwilling to settle their differences for the sake of preserving the Union. Globally, leaders need to accept the fact that a nation’s destiny is no longer based solely on government’s choices, but also on those of other nations. This interlinking of destinies is a result of modern technology and production techniques, both of which serve to bring people across the globe closer to each other. This linkage has improved the lives of millions of people and also exposed them to risks alien to them in the past. Around the world, things seem to be average just about everywhere—there is no place

showing exceptional recovery or any showing continued loss. This is what happens when the leaders of the world’s nations don’t learn from past mistakes and continue to carry their beliefs and prejudices into the future. A lot of what happens in the months and years ahead will depend on two things: The aspirations and attitudes of the people around the world, and the leadership of people in power. With the future of billions hanging in the hands of a select few, one can only wish for those hands to make the right decisions. Finally, any article concerning 2012 is incomplete without invoking talk of the Mayans; we all know they’ve predicted the lifespan of humanity down to the last day, in the year 2012. And I think the Mayans may have even been right. 2012 promises to be the end of the world or, at least the world as we know it. I hope the new world will be brave and bold enough to stand on a mountain of glory rather than errors. I hope we create a better, more equitable future for ourselves instead of remaining apes. Who knows what will happen? We can only wait, watch and hope.

Employing each other’s distinct talents, Maria Albani and Reid Johnson worked together to star in their two bands, each with inverted roles. Organos is a project started by Albani, a veteran to the triangle music culture. She’s played in bands since the ‘90s, and continues to write, play and record music. She will be featured the first night of the Double Barrel Benefit to showcase her unique standpoint in her genre. After being in several projects, Albani started writing her own tunes. Having recorded what would be Organos’ music all by herself, she was asked to showcase it to the public at different shows and events. “There was a while when I wasn’t playing with anyone, I was just by myself,” Albani said. “I would just make up stuff and record on my own. Then I was asked to play live and I had to ask people to help me because I couldn’t play all the instruments by myself.” After Albani began making a name for herself in the triangle area, people volunteered to be a part of the new project. The lineup of Annie Chu, Reid Johnson, John Harrison and Nathan Oliver, who’ve all played or still play in other bands, make Organos a Frankenstein of a music group. Albani is experienced in multitasking, in the sense that she plays with both bands and neither are side projects. She’s also a vital part of the band Schooner, thus making time for both. Johnson, part of Organos and the lead-singer of Schooner, also has this same multitasking persona, making it easier to manage the schedules of both bands. “[The schedules] between Organos and Schooner [never conflict],” Albani said. “We just always know what’s going on because we’re in each others’ bands; we share calendars and check.” Many of the other members of Schooner are also involved

in other projects. For example, John Harrison plays for North Elementary, and many of the members play in different projects as well. Although this multi-project involvement may seem confusing, they all seem to keep each other’s work separate. This is especially important for Albani and Johnson, who are both songwriters for their respective projects. Naturally, if two bands are made up of some of the same members, the possibility of sharing songs wouldn’t be a far-fetched idea, but this doesn’t happen with Albani and Johnson. “It’s the same reason Reid wouldn’t give me a Schooner song for Organos, it’s just too different, and they’re personal; they’re personal to me and I want them done a certain way,” Albani said. “I started doing the Organos stuff before I was in Schooner officially…they exist exclusively of each other. That’s the main thing I get out of it. It’s my thing, that’s my project.” With the release of a Schooner and an Organos album coming soon, the workload doesn’t seem like an issue. Organos’ new album is now leaked on Vimeo with music videos made for each song by separate filmmakers. The album will have guests such as Julian Brown from Feist, and is expected to have a remix done by Broken Social Scene’s Andrew Whiteman. The band is more than excited to play in the Double Barrel Benefit, put together by WKNC. “In fact I offered to do it last year,” Albani said. “It was right around when my first record was releasing; I was doing some booking for other bands and they booked The Old Ceremony. It’s such an awesome event.” WKNC’s 9th annual Double Barrel Benefit is scheduled for Feb. 3 and Feb. 4 at the Pour House Music Hall in Raleigh.

Recent cases of animal hoarding in Wake County draw a distinction between love and mental illness. Sarah Maxwell Staff Writer

A stereotypical animal hoarder is usually a single, middle-aged woman who lives alone with her cats. In reality, there are no specific characteristics that classify hoarders – except that they sometimes house more animals than they can possibly sustain. The Hoarding of Animals Research Consortium (HARC) has defined the term “animal hoarding”; It describes any individual who has acquired more than the typical number of companion animals, fails to provide adequate living conditions, and consistently denies his or her own failure to do so. Two cases of animal hoarding were discovered in Wake County in June; One involved a man who had acquired 34 dogs, while the other situation involved a woman who shared her home with 29 cats. Animal Planet made arrangements to feature the two cases in its series, Confessions: Animal Hoarders. The dog-hoarding episode airs tonight at 10 p.m. and the cat-hoarding episode airs Feb. 10 at 10 p.m. Animal Planet representatives contacted the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) of Wake County to remove the animals from the properties. “This is our first time participating in a rescue with Animal Planet,” Darci VanderSlik, SPCA’s community outreach coordinator, said. She explained that the premise of the series is to have the hoarders turn the animals over on their own free will in exchange for psychological intervention and help regaining control of their lives. Upon arriving at the properties to obtain the animals, SPCA staff mem-

monetarily, of caring for. They’re unable to provide adequate living conditions, ample nutrition, or quality medical care for their pets. Ferris trains animal control officers to deal with animal hoarding situations. In her experience, she has seen as many as 600 animals on a single property and has dealt with a variety of species, from horses to parrots. She has observed many individuals who, upon giving up their pets, later relapsed and resorted to animal hoarding again. “No matter what the motivation, there is a recidivism rate of nearly 100 percent,” Ferris said, meaning hoarders will hoard again unless prevented by some legal action. According to HARC, “animal hoarding is likely a final common pathway from a variety of traumatic experiences which result in dysfunctional attachment styles in people and lead to compulsive and addictive behavior.” In other words, animal hoarding is gaining recognition as a mental disorder. But are hoarders capable of loving the animals they accumulate? VanderSlik thinks so. “Most hoarders really love their animals and surrender them of their own accord,” she said. “They know that that’s what is best for them.”

Bringing everything together Infatuated with music worlds apart, Trailer Trash Tracys creates a passive and eclectic debut. By John Mitchell Assistant Music Director, WKNC-FM

In reality, music is just a sum of its influences. What makes a particular artist, album, or song great is how these influences are pushed together. On Trailer Trash Tracys’ debut album, Ester, the quartet pulls from a myriad of different areas to create beautifully meandering collage-pop. Recently, there’s been a push to maximize the use of reverb to create a full sound. Reverb has effectively become a universal, musical duct tape: it holds together the ambience on a Grouper track, and pulls Lil B’s voice out of the mix on “I’m God.” On Ester, Trailer Trash Tracys use reverb for an entirely different purpose--to act as the base for adding sounds that otherwise would clash when pieced together. On the album’s opener, “RollingKiss the Universe,” t he ba nd employs deconstructed drum fills, wandering vocals and some very strange electronic pulsations. What’s really interesting is that this other-worldly intro leads into a guitar riff that could find itself on a Bruce

On Ester, there are also toylike electronic pangs in “Dies in 55,” excessive delay on “Black Circle” and technic a l g u it a rt appi ng i n “Engelhardt’s Arizona.” There’s also “Candy Girl,” which plays out as minimalist shoegaze. The solfeggio scale that was used in the composition of the album itself is a bit of an oddity, as it’s rarely seen in Western music.

“Reverb has effectively become a universal, musical duct tape.”

It’s incredible that none of the tracks on Ester feel out of place, nor does it feel like Trailer Trash Tracys are ever trying too hard. In fact, I get the impression that the band does not care about how the listener feels; it’s like Ester was created as a tribute to the expression of music in the general sense.

Videri Chocolate Factory opens in Raleigh A “bean-to-bar” chocolate factory offers euphoric chocolate and a show in downtown Raleigh. Story By Frances ellis

Videri sold out three times between Dec. 16 and Christmas Day and business doesn’t seem to be slowing down. Videri has plans to add in a coffee counter with a barista shortly after Valentine’s Day. Videri is a BYOB facility, and Ratto encourages people to bring a friend, date or group and hang out and enjoy the chocolate. Word about the new chocolate factory in Raleigh has spread among N.C. State students and has been met with excitement. “I love chocolate, especially dark chocolate, so for there to be a place in Raleigh where you can watch it be made and really get to see the entire process is really cool,” Loretta Stinson, a senior in business administration, said. “It’s great that Raleigh now has something like this.” “Making chocolate sort of makes you feel like a kid again,” Ratto said. “Although maybe not the part where you have to pick up a 150-lb bag of cocoa beans.”

Nib is then ground again and mixed with cocoa butter, milk powder and sugar to form a liquid chocolate that is packaged in vacuum-sealed bags for aging. Aged chocolate is then run through a tempering machine, placed into molds, and refrigerated.

State continued to struggle in the second half as Carolina increased their lead to 21 points just five minutes in. Although the Wolfpack managed to bank in a number of three-pointers, its shooting percentage remained low. Junior forward Richard Howell only had the opportunity to play 16 minutes due to physicality that led him to foul out with 8:35 left to go. He finished the game with 8 points and 1 rebound.

coach is an essential part to a team’s success, both on and off the court. “Coach Harper has done a great job instilling in us that intensity is important, no matter what,” Kastanek said. “Whether you are playing a game of knock-out, practicing with or without Coach [Harper], we must have intensity. We honestly thought Coach [Harper] was recruiting, so our spirits never got down. Today, we are going to practice really hard and keep the intensity up, because if we don’t, Florida State has one up on us.”

For the Seminoles, on the other hand, two strong forwards could result in a challenge for the Wolfpack. “We expect them to have a great post game,” Kastanek said. “They have a seasoned post player and a young post player. The three guards work together very well. Florida State is a very solid team.” In order to stop the post dominance from the Seminoles, senior forward Bonae Holston will have to get the job done down low in the paint in order for a successful night for State.


“We just had to work on us as a team, doing the things that we were having issues with,” Holston said. “When we play games so close together, we get more worried about the opponent than the stuff we actually need to work on. It was nice to have time this week to improve on our game. As for me, I just need to make myself available more often. It has been different without Coach [Harper] here though. She is the leader of practice.” Tip-off is set for 6:30 p.m. tonight at Reynolds Coliseum.

Pack-Seminoles stage set for showdown today. Adam Luther Staff Writer

The women’s basketball team for the Wolfpack is scheduled to battle Friday night against the Seminoles of Florida State at Reynolds Coliseum in a regular season ACC mid-season match-up. The Pack had just come off a loss to conference and legendary rival, the UNC Tar Heels, and looks to avenge the loss on Friday. The Wolfpack is currently ranked 7th in the Atlantic Coast Conference standings and their opponent is ranked 8th. Both teams have an even conference record standing at 3-4 on the regular season thus far. Overall, State’s record holds two more wins and three fewer losses than the

Seminoles. The Seminoles had just come off a loss against the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets on Sunday with a final score of 79-55. Having both teams come off a loss means the stakes are much greater for both of these teams as the winner will clinch the 7th spot in the ACC standings. After the Pack’s loss to UNC on Sunday, Coach Kellie Harper’s father passed away later that night. Harper was unable to attend practice all week, and according to junior guard Marissa Kastanek, the basketball team missed her absence but continued to work hard on the court to improve each player’s individual game. “The Monday after we played Carolina, we focused on individual stuff and just how we can get better,” Kastanek said. “We worked on breaking down plays, just know exactly what
