Local high school students receive free dresses Dresses for Dreams, an event sponsored by CSLEPS, helped Raleigh-area high school students attend prom

“There were four girls on the committee that planned it. We had four or five other girls come in and volunteer during the event as well. Once we were at the Church we set everything up — racks with dresses by size, the dressing rooms and some decorations.

Brittany Stephens, a sophomore in psychology, sorts the dresses by size, style, cut, length and color so it is easier for the girls to find the best looking and fitting dress. “I remember being in high school and how exciting it was for me when I was going to my prom,” Stephens says. “I really wanted to make sure other girls, especially those less fortunate, have that same experience.”

Kaitlynn Allery, freshman in psychology, said, “I am looking forward to the dress drive again next year. I think it is such a great cause and I’m excited to give my old dresses to girls who will enjoy them as much as I have.” While the event was a success, the committee hopes to have more girls next year. This year, members called some local schools and organizations

that help underprivileged teens and families to recommend the event to girls. In the future, they hope to spread the word even more. “When we were calling schools and non-profits one offered to partner with us, but by that point we already had the location arranged. Next year, we might try to partner with an organization that would help get more girls to come shop for dresses,” Sutter said.

The extra dresses were not discarded, but instead went on to benefit a worthy cause. “We donated the extra dresses to Guardian Angel Thrift store in Fuquay-Varina. All of their proceeds go toward Alzheimer’s research. I and a couple other committee members knew of the store and thought it would be a good place to donate the dresses,” Neal said.

State’s late women’s basketball coach, Kay Yow. The recommended minimum donation for the event is $1 and the money collected for the 1 p.m. game will be given to the Kay Yow WBCA cancer fund and the Kay Yow Endowment Fund. The Red & White Game allows students to watch an inter-squad scrimmage between the football team and is a great

Ending ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’

A

few months ago, Secretary of Defense Robert Gates and Admiral Michael Mullen, chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, testified before the Senate Armed Services Comm it tee i n a hearing about “ d on’t a s k , don’t tell,” the law requiring h at homo Nick Miano tsexual service Staff Columnist members keep their sexuality a secret and that other service members refrain from asking them about it. They said it was unfair and ought to be repealed. During the hearing, Mullen told the committee, “No matter how I look at the issue, I cannot escape being troubled by the fact that we have in place a policy which forces young men and women to lie about who they are in order to defend their fellow citizens … allowing gays and lesbians to serve openly would be the right thing to do.” Many of the lawmakers present responded with outrage. As a former enlisted member of the United States Army, I feel it is time to repeal “don’t ask, don’t tell” and allow homosexual members of the military to serve openly. One of the primary arguments raised by Congressmen at the hearing was that repealing the law would undermine the military’s operational capabilities. They claimed that allowing homosexuals to serve openly would weaken unit cohesion, presumably because other soldiers, sailors, etc. would be uncomfortable serving with an openly gay person. This line of reasoning is not just discriminatory to homosexuals — it’s incredibly presumptuous. It presupposes that straight soldiers would not be professional enough to work alongside gay soldiers. The military is already a very ethnically, culturally and religiously diverse institution, and it handles this diversity very professionally. Also, a study of countries that allow homosexuals to serve openly concluded that doing so in no way affected their operational capacity. It should be noted that the very same argument being raised against allowing ho-

mosexuals to serve openly is the same argument that was raised against desegregating the military. People insisted allowing African-Americans and Caucasians to serve alongside one another would weaken the military’s combat effectiveness. This argument turned out to be completely bogus, and I suspect the argument against repealing “don’t ask, don’t tell” is equally as such. Another argument that has been raised against repealing the law is that it would weaken the military’s image. This argument assumes the military exists to project some kind of image, and homosexuals would be unable to project this image – presumably of “toughness.” The military exists to perform a specific function (national defense), and there are simply no grounds for believing homosexuals would be unable to perform this duty. “Don’t ask, don’t tell” is not only discriminatory, but it also has a negative impact on the military as a whole. Between 1994 and 2009, roughly 13,000 service members were discharged for being homosexual, 800 of whom were described as having jobs that were critical to the needs of the military. Since 9/11, roughly 60 Arabic translators were discharged because of their sexual orientation, this at a time when the military is suffering from a shortage of translators specializing in Arabic. This shortage is in large part a result of this policy. When I was in the Army, I had a friend who was gay and forced to keep his sexuality a secret from almost everyone in his unit. Many of the people who worked directly with him knew he was gay and were completely OK with it. He had a boyfriend who was in the Marine Corp. — both have served in Iraq. The assumption that the military would be somehow weakened by allowing homosexuals to serve openly is a slap in the face to them and to every other gay and lesbian soldier who has ever served our country.

Dworznicki extrapolates too far Andrew Dworznicki’s column in Thursday’s Technician was as confusing as his last name. In trying to defend his stance on offshore drilling, he made the point that by prohibiting this drilling we would only be furthering our reliance on foreign oil. That is well and good by itself, but he then went on to declare that, because of this, we are supporting nations that support terrorism. That is akin to claiming that by purchasing our goods from China, we are financing communism. We are a capitalist nation. We buy our goods wherever they are the cheapest, whether it’s unleaded gasoline or leaded toothpaste. Just because a small portion of the money we spend on oil ends up in the hands of those who intend to do us harm does not make it right to finance offshore drilling platforms that are also potentially harmful to the American public. Additionally, his point that offshore drilling would give us extra time to find alternative fuels is equally convoluted. New offshore drilling platforms take time before they can actually start drilling. During this time, our government would be spending millions of our tax

Look twice on the road The first day of spring has passed and thankfully Mother Nature is turning up the thermostat. Already you can hear the roaring of lawn mowers, the whine of weed whackers and the rumble of motorcycles in increasing numbers on the road.  People ride for many reasons: some to save gas, some because it’s gentler to the environment and others simply because it makes the ride to work more enjoyable. And a major danger all riders face is the folks they share the road with.  I’m writing to remind everyone, “Look twice!  Save a life!  Motorcycles are everywhere!”  The number one phrase heard from a motorist involved in an accident with a motorcycle is, “I never even saw him.”  So, please folks — look. If you violate the right of way of another

Degrading Technician standards Every week it seems Technician tries to lower its standards to gain readers. Well this week it lost one, maybe more. When I think of a school newspaper, I think of school news, not someone’s view on sex, pimps, sluts, sex toys and sexting; this is not news. A better use of this paper would be to include sports, puzzles, upcoming school events, police blotter and how current issues locally are affecting students. If Technician would like to continue the current type of ridiculous articles I believe a blog would be a better medium. On a lighter note, I believe it is not too much to ask for writers to run spell check on their articles (flexibility?). I am going to run spell check on this letter before I send it in; it is not that difficult. I wrote this letter with good intentions so it might promote changes to our Technician that help keep it alive.

Technician Commentary

Campus Issues: Transfer troubles The intra-campus transfer policy needs to be addressed  Stephen Behan Staff Writer        

At N.C. State University, prospective students must choose a college and major to apply to.  Of course, to do this means the student must already know what field of study, and possibly what career, he or she would like to pursue.        Many students, however, are not sure about their interests, academic strengths and futures.  Or they choose a major and find out it’s not what they thought it was.  These students will almost certainly have to deal with the intra-campus transfer process.         One of the major problems with the process is that the requirements to matriculate into many colleges are harder for transfer students than they are for unmatriculated students already in the major.         For example, in order to matriculate into the political science program, a transfer student with a grade point average between 2.5 and 2.99 must complete at least six credit hours of political science courses with a B- or better. Meanwhile, a student already in the

political science program needs only a C- or better and a GPA of 2.0 or above. With the end of the year just around the corner, many students have had to deal with their academic advisors — we all know how that goes.  Through many conversations and personal experiences, I have learned that academic advisors are generally associated with frustration and inadequacy among the student population.  On most accounts, they are equally unsatisfactory with regards to intra-campus transfer assistance.  I am on my third advisor, and am f inally getting adequate help with transferring my major.  After that process is done, I will be given a new — and hopefully my last — advisor.        Needless to say, the whole process is inefficient, time consuming and frustrating.  Most advisors, at least from what I gather, are not very helpful.  They may or may not be personable, but to most advisors, helping students seems to be just another obligation.  However, this is not the case with all advisors.  My current advisor is great.  He’s helpful, knowledgeable and actually remembers my name every time I come by.  But before him, there were two others whose

“Needless to say, the whole process is inefficient, time consuming and frustrating.”

inadequate advising only succeeded in creating confusion and adding another year to my stay here at school.         So what must officials do to correct this decrepit system?  For starters, make it fair.  A student should not be punished for changing his or her mind.  The requirements should not be different for transfer students to matriculate than they are for in-program students.  It makes no sense for the transfer to be harder than necessary.  It only succeeds in averting students from pursuing a new major they may enjoy more or be better suited for.         Secondly, if students knew more about the majors they first sign up for, there would be fewer transfer students to deal with.  There should be a program that explains to future students the differences between and aspects of each major offered at N.C. State.  The future jobs each major can lead to should, likewise, be explained before majors are chosen.          Finally, we need a more hands-on advising program.  Students don’t get enough individual attention when it comes to advising.  When I went to my advisor and said I wanted to change majors, she gave me a slip of paper and told me I had a new advisor now.  There was nothing personal.  A more humanistic approach is needed to help students, not only with transferring, but with their whole academic careers.

In the three years since Monica’s last album, “The Makings of Me,” R&B music has become increasingly watered down and has drifted further away from its soulful origins.  With Monica’s latest release, however, which is appropriately titled “Still Standing,” the Grammy Award winner has helped to bring R&B back to its strong roots, where the focus is on vocal ability, meaningful lyrical content and dynamic production.   We were first introduced to a 14-year-old Monica back in 1995 with the sassy, “Don’t Take It Personal” from her debut album Miss Thang. Since then, she has remained one of the most consistent and powerful singers to emerge in the past 20 years. “Still Standing” chronicles the joys and sorrows of love, life and relationships and reminds us why Monica has been able to achieve such longevity in her career.  We begin the album with its title track, “Still Standing,” featuring rapper Ludacris. The hard-hitting anthem is a testament of Monica’s strength and resilience, despite life’s obstacles and trials. It’s one of the album’s best songs, as it sets the tone for the emotional journey that is “Still Standing.” Next up is the Los Da Mystro produced, piano driven, “One in A Lifetime,” where Monica stresses the importance of appreciating that rare love and recognizing it before it’s too late. “One In A Lifetime” is followed by “Stay Or Go.” The Ne-Yo penned tune has Monica demanding an answer from an indecisive lover who is struggling between a decision of whether or not he wants to be with her. On both up-tempo tracks — and throughout most

of the album — Monica sings with an intensity and urgency that penetrates the soul.  Stand outs on the album include the sample heavy, Missy Elliot produced “Everything to Me” and “If You Were My M a n .” O n t he a lbums f irst single, “Everything to Me,” Monica proclaims how her love mea ns t he world to her and on the up-tempo “If You Were My M a n ,” s h e boasts of how good her love is to prospective mates.  Although “Still Standing” is very strong, it does not go without its share of missteps. With the generic and gimmicky, “Superman”, Monica croons how she will be her man’s Lois Lane, and the Jermaine Dupri helmed “Love All Over Me”

“...Monica sings with an intensity and urgency that penetrates the soul.”

sounds like a left over track from Miss Thang. Never fear, Monica shines on the other slower songs, showcasing her vocal prowess on the sensual “Here I Am,” and the inspiring “Believe In Me,” while the radio friendly midtempo urban pop “Mirror” has Monica explaining how she has discovered that it’s not the material things, but love that makes life worth living.  
  Overall, “Still Standing” is a well balanced and cohesive collection of what we’ve come to expect from Monica, impassioned delivery and relatable music. What separates Monica from her female counterparts is her ability to tackle material with emotion, conviction and a sense of sincerity. Monica proves she is able to remain current and relevant, while bringing a sense of maturity and timelessness to her music, which is why, in a fickle industry, she is “Still Standing.”

With him being in O’Brien’s offense, you can see the potential, with what Russell does and with what [current Atlanta Falcons star] Matt Ryan did, to put up big numbers and be a very impressive quarterback in his system. Once Mike gets his chance, he is going to shine. I sincerely believe he is going to end up being one of the best quarterbacks in the ACC by the time he is the guy.” Sat u rd ay ’s K ay Yow Spring Football Game at Carter-Finley Stadium will provide fans with their first opportunity to witness Mike in extensive action running the first team offense. “We’re going to put on a show,” Spencer said. “I’m pretty sure everyone wants to see what [Mike] Glennon’s got, and they will get to see it first-hand.”

State exceed expectations for the second year in a row. Seniors Emily Street and Strandberg are right behind her on the leader board. Though they, like everyone on the team, have struggled at times this season, Saleeby said the ACC Tournament is the perfect setting for the veterans to step up and finish off their college careers strong. “They deserve it,” Saleeby said. “They have been great leaders and great role models, for me especially.”  Strandberg said this isn’t just another tournament for her and her fellow seniors.  “Being so close to the end has kind of changed my attitude,” Strandberg said. “I’m really enjoying every moment now because this is it.” State will start in the second wave of teams today at 9:20 a.m. along with Virginia and Florida State.

Hill wins ACC title Redshirt freshman Ryan Hill, who was named the ACC’s Outdoor Performer of the Week Monday, won the ACC title in the 10,000 meter run at the outdoor conference championship meet Thursday in Clemson, S.C. Hill clocked a time of 29:32.28, the ninth-fastest time in school history. His time of 3:40.81 in the 1500 meter set a school marker last week in Chapel Hill and was the fastest in the nation at that point. This is Hill’s first year with the track team because he was competing in the US Junior World Cross Country Championships during the same time last year.

tion at Virginia Tech,” Sean said. “Coaches felt that Tyrod Taylor was too talented of a guy to keep off the field so they found ways to get him in. My career prepared Mike mentally. I don’t think any of this is throwing him for a loop. He saw what happens when one team has two starting-caliber quarterbacks. One person is going to play more than the other and that is the bottom line. He realizes that and I don’t think he is bitter in any way.” In the meantime, Mike is taking full advantage of the opportunity to lead the offense in Wilson’s absence, according to senior wide receiver Owen Spencer. “He’s doing a very good job,” Spencer said. “With him and Russell going at it the past couple years, it’s really shaped both of them. With Russell being out, Mike is really stepping into the role of being a complete quarterback.” Watching Sean’s games in person also allowed Mike to become accustomed to the bright lights and passionate fans of ACC football long before he ever made his collegiate debut. “He’s a guy that’s not going to get rattled,” Sean said. “It helps that he went to all of those games that I was at.

The Pack is coming off its worst collective finish of the year at the Bryan National Collegiate, in which it placed 17th of 18 teams.

Honoring a late great

Before the spring game, which is free of admission, staffers will be on hand to collect donations for the Kay Yow Memorial Fund. In 2009, the year the spring game was renamed in honor of Yow, each fan was asked to contribute $1 and more than $20,000 was collected.
