‘We the People’ initiative announced by White House Although experts see the electronic petition process as a ploy, they agree on increased involvement. Joshua Chappell Senior Staff Writer

Citizens wishing to have their voices heard by the federal government will have a new way to petition in the coming months. The “We the People” initiative, announced by the White House last week, is a program in which any citizen can create an online petition for

any issue. If they receive enough electronic signatures in a certain amount of time – 5,000 signatures in 30 days – the White House is guaranteeing that they will review and respond to the petition. While a launch date has not yet been announced, the White House said that it will go live “soon.” According to the White House, the main goal of this program is to emphasize a grassroots movement. They plan to do this by only allowing a petition’s unique URL to be searchable on after it has received 150 signatures.

Amanda Edwards, associate teaching professor of political science, said that she believes this effort is part of a larger agenda by the Obama administration. “I think [the administration] is doing this for electoral purposes,” Edwards said. “They have an agenda and this is another way for them to reach out to the public.” Edwards also went on to talk about how the idea of petitioning the executive branch is a new concept in American politics. “Conceptually, you should petition the legislature for policy change, not

the White House,” Edwards said. “But theoretically, the executive branch today can push for policy change based on the President’s role as the representative of a national constituency.” Edwards also said the fact that the President is essentially the only national representative is what validates this effort to reach the grassroots. Technology is also a key component of this program and, historically speaking, has proven useful for our country, according to Edwards. “Technology has always fostered change in our institutions of government -- the executive branch in

particular,” Edwards said. “This use of online petitions by the executive branch is an example of the role of the executive branch as a result of technological advances.” Steven Greene, associate professor of public and international affairs, said that while he thinks the White House has started this program to reach younger Americans, they also have their own electoral interests in mind. “They presumably started this to try to get young people more in-

Blue and red acrylic paints swirl in a painting by Kirk Adam in the R. A. Bryan Foundation, Inc. Gallery at the Universtiy Craft Center as part of Adam’s Modern Abstracts exhibition on August 30. The collection included paintings of swirled circles, blended lines and a colorful city scene.

Local artist encourages students to ‘Pick up a brush’ Elementary school teacher and on-campus art instructor brings acrylic exhibit to craft center. Erin Schnuit Staff Writer

Kirk Adam, local artist and N.C. State Crafts Center instructor, has an exhibit in the lobby of the Crafts Center called Modern Abstracts which features several different acrylicpainted canvases. The exhibit made its debut on Aug. 17 and will be displayed until Oct. 30.

Kirk Adam spends much of his time teaching. Whether it’s in a college craft room or an elementary school classroom, his passion for art transcends himself. Adam also teaches abstract acrylic classes at the center so that students may learn his techniques. Adam works at the Neuse Charter School in Smithfield, NC as an art teacher for Kindergarteners through fifth-graders. The school was the first public charter school in North Carolina and has a concentration in international studies. Adam is an asset to these students because art expands the mind far beyond the classroom and

into a more creative place. “I encourage all students to pick up a brush and just start painting,” Adam said. This charge is evident in the exhibition stationed at the Crafts Center, and students and staff who stopped to admire the acrylics mentioned the art made them want to paint. Anna Walker, a sophomore in landscape architecture, described the paintings as using different colors and textures to represent different people and ideas coming together in

friends to get a ride back home. “I come from Henderson, which is an hour away. I drive my car to home and back because it’s convenient and I can choose when to go and come”, James Rowland, a junior double majoring in math and physics, said. If gas prices were hugely inflated then James said he might use a bus. “If the gas was maybe $5 a gallon, I would consider taking a bus” Rowland said. Janel Marsilia, a sophomore in fashion and textile management said she would use a car to commute to and from college whether it her’s or her parent’s. “My home is Statesville, N.C., an hour and a half from Char-

lotte. My parents usually drop me to the University, but I’ll have my car next week. So, no, I will use my car and not the bus,” Marsilia said. 
Thea Long, also a freshman in fashion and textile management, said she hasn’t had good experiences with Greyhound and would drive, carpool or take the Amtrak train back home. “My hometown is Lenoir, N.C., which is three hours away, so my family drives me to the University, or I carpool or use the Amtrak service. I have used Greyhound once from Charlotte to Raleigh and I didn’t have the greatest experience last time I used it, it was super-crowded and there was no room,” Long said.

“I’m sure I’ll see petitions floating around, and I will sign those with which I agree,” Russell said.

This new online petitioning process, according to Russell, is something that can be of great benefit to our nation. “I think this political tool will help facilitate a truer democracy where the popular voice is guaranteed to be heard,” Russell said.

{Our view}

Encourage the support of the Wolfpack W

The Facts:

N.C. State aims to garner financial support from its alumni. Donations from Thomas Laundon, engineering alum, will be going towards the awareness of dual degree programs at the University.

Our Opinion:

The donations from alumni are on the right track of garnering the right type of support for the University, and should continue head on.

hile many times alumni support is seen as nonexistent or meaningless, the amount N.C. State receives each year from individuals and corporations has a huge impact on students’ lives. N.C. State’s diverse group of alumni supporters offer gifts each year to support the University. This is the right direction for our alumni relationship, and should continue. Engineering alum, Thomas Laundon, donated $125,000 to a scholars program to support the program his two sons were interested in. Last year, the College of Management was renamed to honor a $37 million donation from Lonnie C. Poole Jr., and Randall B. Terry Jr., all of whom never attended N.C. State, began support-

ing the College of Veterinary Medicine after one of his nine golden retrievers became ill. These are few of the many stories and tributes to those who have donated and supported various aspects of the University. While the resources from tuition and state-allotted funds fuel the operating task of N.C. State, alumni donations provide the necessary funding for projects on campus and meet the needs of academic development, including curriculum improvement. With the state budget shrinking each year, the extra flow of money provides some much needed support for the University.

Whether it is from an individual or a corporation, financial gifts provide numerous opportunities for our University, and should be encouraged. As students who will shortly be entering the work force, these impacts should be remembered and used to encourage future donations to the University. The donations from former students are affecting the lives of the students of today; therefore, the students of today should support the students of the future. The three different kinds of alumni organizations the University has in place touch nearly every aspect of student

life. Annual Giving offers help to the academic mission of the University, supporting technological improvements and research partnerships, increased scholarships and funding for community service. The Alumni Association is a membership-based organization to assist in alumni interests and relations to campus. The Wolfpack Club supports athletic facilities and scholarships for the University. No matter where the interests of the benefactor lie, N.C. State allows different avenues for any type of financial support. No matter how much the gift is worth, where it goes or who it is from, any type of support is good support and should encouraged as an investment in the future of our education.

The end of free expression


he Free Expression Tunnel has garnered much controversy over the past several months. Some have come to question the extent to which free expression should reign at the University. Others have come to que st ion t he state of race relations at N.C. State. However, with a c o m f o r table distance bet ween the Josh last and the Lucas next issue surDeputy Viewpoint Editor rounding the tunnel, it is the perfect time for an evaluation of the Tunnel free from ideological or political thought. I am glad to see all the constant controversy surrounding the Free Expression Tunnel, as I hope it will eventually propel the powers that be to condemn it. My reasons for despising the Tunnel have nothing to do with the controversy. It has to do with a more personal experience than anything publicized before. The Tunnel is the eyesore to end all eyesores, this includes Harrelson  and Poe Halls. Though beautiful works of art such as the Kay Yow memorial have been created in it, such examples are far and few between. The majority of the time, the Free Expression Tunnel feels like a mix between a condemned crack den and Times Square. Ads for campus organizations and random phalluses adorn the walls without order, as if they are yelling at you. Regardless of the controversial subject matter adorning the walls, I am surprised that people are led through it during campus tours based on its

appearance alone. When it rains, one encounters the most vexing issue of the Free Expression Tunnel, should they perchance be wearing inadequate footwear. A prayer goes out to all of those who are caught in the rain wearing Rainbows, worn-down tennis shoes, or poorly soled boots, as the tunnel becomes a Slip and Slide instead of a walkway. Faced with such a hazard, you will either find yourself taking an alternate route to avoid the Tunnel, a route that will take you way out of your way, or trying to avoid busting your lower half while voyaging through it. This is all to say nothing of the paint-fume high one is constantly vulnerable to. I would prefer not to lose my brain cells without my consent. I have tried holding my breath as I pass through, but as I am not in the cardiovascular shape I once was, I end up not being able to go the distance. This being the case, I am forced into a deep inhale in the middle of the action and can feel my brain begin to melt. If I underperform academically this year, I’ll most likely blame the Free Expression Tunnel. I’d like to return to the phallic imagery of the expression tunnel. I understand the place for these graphic designs: a friend’s car window or the middle of a friend’s term paper. Such art is out of place in the Free Expression Tunnel. Painting such images is similar to someone wearing a UNC shirt on campus; there is no rule against it, but it’s just out of place. Please, keep such art where it will be appreciated. I come to question the administration that allowed for the Free Expression Tunnel to be established where it is. The Tunnel is located at one of the University’s main hubs for foot traffic. I would have much less of an issue with it if it were in a less frequented spot. And as I find myself losing my appetite as I walk through the to the Atrium, I become ever more cemented in my belief that its time is over. Please, someone, end the free expression once and for all.

Stop the cure


he first Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders is due for publication in May 2013 and since the fourth edition’s arrival in 2000, there has been a large controversy over what should constitute as a mental disorder and what should not. Mental disorders bring legal, social and financial Anokhi ramificaShah tions, and for Deputy these reason Viewpoint Editor the DSM-IV should limit the number of mental disorders to only those truly warranting treatment. Approximately one out of four college students are diagnosed with a mental disorder during college or have already been diagnosed with a psychological condition. Many of these students are diagnosed with attention deficit disorder. To fit the DSM-IV definition for ADD, one must fit six out of nine inattention criteria and six out of nine hyperactivity-impulsivity criteria, along with a few other broad criteria regarding length of time of symptoms and intensity. The inattention criteria consists of vague statements such as, “patients often have difficulty organizing tasks and activities.” The hyperactivity criteria consist of equally vague statements, which encompass the behavior of most children. This leads to a growing number of ADD diagnoses, especially for children, and an increased number of medicated children

for simply exhibiting normal behavior. Allen Frances of the Los Angeles Times stated that the DSM-IV contributed to three mental health epidemics—attention deficit disorder, autism and childhood bipolar disorder. ADD does exist, and so does ADHD, bipolar disorder and autism. However, the widening number of those diagnosed with a mental disorder increases the number misdiagnosed with a mental disorder. The DSM-IV panel is currently debating the addition of premenstrual dysphonic disorder, which is basically an extreme version of PMS. Some women may benefit from these diagnoses, as their symptoms far outstrip the average woman’s each month. However, if the DSM-IV fails to choose extreme criteria, many women previously undiagnosed and untreated each month will find a legitimate excuse to neglect responsibilities and seek a ‘magic pill’ to alleviate all symptoms. The DSM-IV operates under the guise of identifying a clear boundary between normal and abnormal. But in reality, the normality line is extremely gray and not at all fine. The situation is further complicated because normality is not a scientific construct. It is a social construct that has emerged in a society that favors conformity, and views belonging analogously with success. The mental health field has come a long way in the past 50 years. Treatment, particularly in the light of biological and neurological advances, has helped many individuals suffering from legitimate disor-

ders to live a normal life. But the pharmaceutical industry has also contributed to a widespread movement to medicate every eccentricity and sedate abnormal urges in the name of achieving society’s normal. Many individuals suffering from these disorders do not want a cure. There are people with Asperger’s who are proud to have the syndrome. It is highly doubtful that when homosexuality was viewed as a disorder, all homosexuals desired a cure. Not everyone wants to be normal. Most individuals have a common desire to fit in, but this is more reflective of society than their respective conditions. Fitting in does not always mean treatment or a cure. Sometimes fitting in is just changing society to be a little more accepting. It is important to realize the differences in people and learn to accept them. The point of diversity is not just to accept people of different cultures and backgrounds, but all people with different ways of life, different perspectives and ways of thinking. That includes people with disorders who do not wish to conform to society but wish to embrace the way they are. The DSMIV panel should take great care to limit the number and breadth of disorders listed in 2013, because each disorder identified will lead to greater pressure and means to medicate and conform.

Locally, boutiques in Raleigh, along with participating stores in the Crabtree Valley Mall and the Streets at Southpoint, ensure that even N.C. State students can join in on the shopping extravaganza. “I’m going to try and find as many stores around here and just go to each one,” Ellison said. “The stores usually have fashion shows and sales, so you can go and just immerse yourself in everything.” For students that are unable to leave their dorms on a school night, most of the participating retailers are also holding special sales online for shoppers that can’t make it to the actual event. Official Fashion’s Night Out merchandise is available for purchase both online and in select stores with pieces including super soft, chic tees for women and men, tote bags designed by Brahmin and a baseball-style hat. Fur t hermore, Fashion’s Night Out gives feel-good incentive for consumers to keep shopping. For each purchase of official merchandise made, forty percent of the proceeds benefit New York’s AIDS fund. And, with the buzz surrounding this year’s event, designers are hoping this will give the fashion industry and the economy the boost it needs to move forward and expand. Many stores are holding major sales and exclusive deals for the one-night event. “Personally, I can never get enough of clothing and accessories and I’m sure a majority

But no one has found a direct negative effect of these sodas unless a person obsessively consumes 20-30 sodas per day,” Harris said. “There were also discussions in which people said consuming these sweeteners made one more hungry.” Studies such as those conducted by the University of Texas show that over time, eating and drinking choices along with portion control are what truly determine the size of the waistline.

Another North Carolinian school, East Carolina University, was where Welmers and Herring began to form the band. Herring met their current bassist their first day of classes, and after swapping different members in previous bands, they now make up The Future Islands. With their original fan base

in North Carolina, the boys are excited to return to the homeland. “It’s actually a really awesome thing for us to be considered a Baltimore band from North Carolina,” Herring said. “It’s important for us to stick to those roots even though we don’t live back home. If it wasn’t for all those times down South, we wouldn’t have this.”

Herring continued, “Last year, we were just excited that something like this was happening in North Carolina; it’s a big deal. Just the name, the bands coming in, it’s a highly covered festival. We were really lucky enough to be asked to come play.” This band, as well as others, will represent a different ap-

proach to the progressive areas of music. Joining various other bands, the Future Islands will be playing on the final day of the festival at the Lincoln Theatre, located on 126 E Cabarrus Street in downtown Raleigh.

back to its historical roots and put our own personality into it,” Wolf said. Serving a blend of American style cuisine with European influences, Wolf brings to Raleigh a unique dining experience, right down to the décor, which was undoubtedly influenced by Shannon’s time in the midst of New York’s fashion center, as well as her appreciation for vintage pieces. Perhaps the most quintessential piece is the bar and back bar which are made from pieces of a New York landmark found in Union Square. Lüchow’s Restaurant, which was open for almost one hundred years in the nineteenth century, contributed wood to the handmade furnishing. Lining the walls are family photos along with vintage wallpaper, hand-picked by Wolf herself. “Though the décor is vintage, the concept is modern,” Wolf said. “The food is affordable, fresh and local. And on Fridays and Saturdays, we have local bands come and DJ. We try to keep it fun and modern to satisfy ages spanning from college students to families.” With a menu consisting of various tantalizing dishes, it may be hard for anyone to choose their favorite. However, Wolf’s favorite is the garden skillet and the fries. “I’m obsessed with fries and my husband, Jake, named them after me.” The restaurant often participates in many local events. For the upcoming Hopscotch Music Festival, late night food and drink specials will be offered. Also, every Tuesday, anyone who rides their bicycle to the restaurant will receive twenty percent off their meal. Next month, Capital Club 16 will be hosting Oktoberfest on Friday the 16. “We plan on pushing the tables together and clearing out space to make it one big party,” Wolf said. “We want to make it so it’s not just food. We want people to just hang out and have fun.” With a decade of fashion experience under her belt, Wolf has plenty of advice for those hoping to break into the industry after college.

“Follow what you’re passionate about and then be willing to work your way up,” she said. “You’ll meet people that way and it’ll take you in the direction you want to go.” As far as the restaurant goes, her objective is simple. “We want to make it an

extension of our home. It’s somewhere we would want to hang out,” Wolf said. “We want people to come and just feel at home, and for college students, it’s a really fun place to hang out.”

strong mix of experienced runners returning this year. The women’s team will be led by Laura Hoer, 2010 All-American and Individual ACCChampion, as well as All-ACC runner Andie Cozzarelli, who had a spectacular outdoor track season earning All-American honors in the 10,000 meters. The women’s team does not have as much race experience as the men’s, but its supporting runners will prove key to how successful the team will be.

to get now that we are starting ACC play, but you just have to be hungry for it. You have to want it.” After traveling to High Point, State will host the University of North Florida this Sunday. With only two more contests before heated conference play commences, Cain said this year’s team can overcome the annual conference hurdle with simple passion and desire.   “Everyone wants it,” Cain said. “They want to be here and they love the game. Every time we are on the field we are just hungry and we want it. It’s a good feeling to see everyone want it.”   With the bulk of her senior season in full view, Cain knows exactly where she wants the team to arrive come November.   “We know the job we have to do and the goals we want to achieve — reach the NCAA’s,” Cain said. “Every game we are just going out and doing everything we can to get to that result.”   For a humble individual with a gaudy work ethic, it would be the perfect curtain call.

Women’s golf heads into upcoming season with impetus to excel New coaches and athletes bring excitement to growing program Austin Evans Staff Writer

Anticipation is growing rapidly for the commencement of the women’s golf season. The season begins this Sunday when the Pack travels to Hanahan, S.C. to compete in the Cougar Classic. The team is coming off of a respectable 2010-2011 season, but the progress made in the off-season is the main reason for the wealth of excitement surrounding the program. The program recently gained two major additions to its staff, former Southern Methodist University head coach Todd Selders and former University of North Carolina head coach Sally Austin, as an assistant coach and volunteer assistant coach, respectively. Following a season assisting the men’s golf team at Coastal Carolina University, Selders has eight years of coaching experience, including his seven years at the helm of the SMU program. During his years there, Selders earned Conference USA Coach of the Year honors twice and coached many All-Conference golfers. In the 2005-2006 season, his team notched a second-place finish at the Conference USA Championships. Austin joins the Wolfpack after 15 seasons in charge of the women’s program at Chapel Hill. The Tarheels were extremely successful under Austin’s coaching, finishing in the top 25 at the NCAA Championships six times in 15 seasons. Austin coached seven All-American athletes during her tenure with the Tarheels, along with 16 All-ACC athletes. In 2004 she was named Coach of the Year by the Ladies’ Professional Golf Association. Head coach Page Marsh is thrilled to have such experienced and respected coaches join her this season.

“It’s so exciting to bring together a group of coaches who want to win an ACC Championship and an NCAA Championship,” Marsh said. “Each of us have a great respect for the game and we definitely have a great respect for one another.” The new additions to the coaching staff aren’t, however, the only reason to believe the Pack will excel this season. Several members of the team played tough competitive schedules over the summer, some even participating in professional events as amateurs. Freshman walk-on Augusta James is carrying a great deal of momentum into the season after a great summer of competitive golf. James qualified for the Canadian Open, one of the premier LPGA events of the year, and barely missed the cut by shooting rounds of 74-72 to finish two-over par. Vivian Tsui, a freshman in biological science, had a remarkable summer as well. Tsui, along with four other teammates, qualified for the Royale Cup Canadian Women’s Amateur Championship in July. Tsui, James, Amanda Baker and Brittany Marchand all finished in the top 20 of the field, which contained over 120 of the best young women golfers in North America. Tsui led the tournament for the first three rounds before slipping behind on the final day. Coach Marsh is elated to have a group of women who have such a passion and love for the game that they compete in high-level events even in the offseason. “A lot of our girls played tough schedules this summer,” Marsh said. “The best arena in which you can place yourself is in competition.” Despite the fact that one-third of the team is comprised of true freshmen, and the rest are either sophomores or juniors, coach Marsh believes her team is ready to compete at a high level this season. “In golf, one’s experience is not necessarily determined by their age,” Marsh said. “We have a group of young women coming in who already have great experience.” Marsh isn’t making any predictions or

says Marsh. “We’re just going to take one shot at a time, each tournament, and at the end of the season we’ll add it up and evaluate how we did.”

Pack knows that Cain is able

Golf World acknowledges two members of the Pack

Talented senior forward has her feet on the ground and eyes on the mountain top.

Two men’s golfers, sophomore Albin Choi and junior Mitchell Sutton, have been named by Golf World magazine as ‘players to watch’ during the 2011-12 season. Over the summer, Choi won the Monroe Invitational Championship held in Rochester, N.Y. with a score of 9-under par over 72 holes. Choi also nearly qualified for the U.S. Open but fell two shots short while at a qualifier in Springfield, Ohio. At the same tournament in Rochester, Sutton finished fifth while also making it to the first round of the 2011 U.S. Amateur.

cross country

Wolfpack cross country looks to lead the way Men’s and women’s cross country teams prepare for upcoming meet. Phillip Misklow Staff Writer

On Sept. 16 in Cary at the Adidas Cross Country Challenge, the men’s and women’s cross country teams will toe the starting line for the first time this year. The men and women’s teams are ranked 13th and 21st, respectively, in the USTFCCCA’s preseason Division I polls. Ryan Hill showed his dissatisfaction with the team’s performance at the end of last season. “Last year, we came in second at the ACCs and then we were 20th at Nationals,” Hill, a senior in sports management, said. “We were a little disappointed when we came up short on both of those goals.” Hill, a two-time All-American, is one of many experienced returners for the men’s team this year. Other returners include Greg Dame, Bobby Moldovan, Patrick Campbell, and All-ACC runner, Andrew Colley; the team is nearly identical to last year’s. The men only lost one runner over the past year, Sandy Roberts, but gained an All-SEC transfer, Adam Henken. “We only lost one guy, Sandy Roberts, and we also added Adam Henken, who redshirted last year because he transferred from Kentucky,” Hill said. “So we haven’t really lost anyone; we’ve gained a better asset, so we are a better team than last year.” The men’s team has the depth and the experience to compete amongst the nation’s top teams, but do the

Challenge. “What it is [the Adidas Challenge] is preparation for a week later at Minnesota,” Geiger said. “So it is only, almost to a degree, a scrimmage-type competition where we are trying to get ready for Minnesota and Minnesota is a big meet. Three weeks later, we have a huge meet at Wisconsin.” Adidas Wisconsin Invitational in Madison will showcase many of the nation’s top teams, who will compete against one another for the first time. Last year’s field of teams included eight of the top 30 ranked teams in this year’s USTFCCCA’s preseason Division I polls. Other notable races include the ACC Championships on Oct. 29, NCAA Southeast Regionals on Nov. 12, and NCAA National Championships on Nov. 21. This year, the ACC Championship will be held in Clemson, and the Pack looks to take back the ACC Championship after losing to Florida State last year by 38 points. Hill is confident in himself and his teammates that this year’s outcome will be different. “We want to win every year,” Hill said. “There is a strong sense of confidence we will win this year. Everyone just feels good about it, but Florida State is the team to beat. They are very good.” The women’s team also kicks off its season on at the Adidas Cross Country Challenge. Ranked 21st in the USTFCCCA’s preseason Division I polls, the race for the ACC championships will be much tighter for the women’s team. There are five other ACC teams ranked ahead of the women including Florida State (6th overall), Duke (9th), UNC (12th), UVA (17th), and Boston College (tied for 18th). The women also have a
