UNC System president throws Board of Governors new tuition curveball
With a new and lower proposal on the horizon, Student Government awaits an answer from the Board of Governors.

The friends were playing the popular board game in Global Village, a coffee shop on Hillsborough Street. “We just have an hour before class,” Deweese said. “I think [playing backgammon] is going to become a new tradition though.”
Student Health Center relies on discretion When it comes to strong medications, student health officials rely on case-by-case discretion for prescriptions. Anna Riley Staff Writer
As the peak of flu season draws near, students are drawn to the Student Health Center, though not always for the right reasons. Cases of the flu virus and various sicknesses peak during January and February and require diligent care, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Persistent f lu symptoms include high fever, sore throat, and a cough that is often treated with Promethazine/Codeine syrup, an antihistamine and narcotic cough suppressant mixture. Codeine syrup is an opiate, leading to concerns about allowing mass numbers of students direct access to the medication. Opiates come from the substance opium, which is derived
from poppy plants.

Civil rights celebrated on campus Students celebrate MLK Day with a week-long tribute. Lauren Vanderveen Staff Writer
In the heat of the Civil Rights Movement, Martin Luther King Jr. delivered the famous “I Have a Dream” speech in 1963, where he stressed the importance of non-violent protest and the undeniable need for racial equality in America. Forty-eight years later, not only is King celebrated through a national holiday, but his message is still being taught through campus-wide events. Wes Moore, author of “The Other Wes Moore: One Name, Two Fates,” led one such event by paying tribute to King in a speech to students Jan. 9. Tanya Watson, a graduate student in curriculum and instruction, attended the event and spoke on what it meant to her. “For me, the activities and Martin Luther King’s teachings interrupt the negative thoughts I have, and as a woman and an African American, convince me to understand the plight of others and ‘The Other’ [Wes Moore’s book],” Watson said. Having a campus with a population
of around 30,000 — all of whom come from different backgrounds, ethnicities and cultures — makes it imperative to continue to promote King’s convictions, Moore said. “Wes Moore also weaved into his talk the importance of having multiple vantage points, where our view should be a world view, an outward look into the lives of others,” Watson added. Other students have seen the benefits for having these events at the University as well. “One thing I like about this campus the most is how much it promotes diversity and how that brings everyone together to make a bond that no one else can understand,” Kendyll Graham, a freshman in animal science, said. According to Kathryn Michael, director of youth programs for the CSLEPS’s Service-Leadership Team, several Martin Luther King Jr. Day events took place throughout the week. “The event’s theme is ‘respecting our right to free speech’ in light of the hate speech incidents on campus,” Michael said. “Edward Brown, director of diversity programs at N.C. State, spoke on this and led a discus-

sion. We also had another speaker, Dennis Gullick, give some remarks on peaceful protest, and then we made some signs for the march that participants did around campus.” The SLT will also be making hygiene kits and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for the Raleigh Rescue Mission, along with donating 48 haircut vouchers to The Healing Place, Michael said. The same group will be hosting the 10th annual Martin Luther King Jr. Service Challenge Saturday, funded by the NC Campus Compact Grant. “Due to a huge response from the student body, we had to cut off registration for the event at 100 students; our goal was 50. In addition, 50 Ligon Middle School students participated,” Michael added. Uniting students from all levels of education in a combined effort service project shows the power King’s words still hold almost 50 years later, Michael said. “His quote, ‘Life’s most persistent and urgent question is what you are doing for others’ and his belief that anybody can serve were inspirations for the event,” Michael said.

wight Hawkins has a different view on traveling than most people. Calling himself a modern day hobo, Hawkins travels the nation playing in impromptu bands, riding on freight trains, and singing about his adventures. “In New Orleans, I didn’t have a job, so I just put together a band for a day. Its hard at first to communicate, but eventually you don’t get nervous anymore,” he said. “A D chord is the same everywhere.” Hawkins doesn’t recommend that everyone tries his lifestyle though. “I’ve been pulled off a number of trains. I’ve run into guys doing inspections. But the exhilaration is worth far more than getting caught.” Ultimately, Hawkins lifestyle is one of self sustainability. “I’m a traditional hobo. I wander and travel, but I work.” In fact, Hawkins is skilled in carpentry and tile work, but enjoys his train hopping lifestyle more. “I’m gonna ride, ride, ride.”

Rodgers added giving a patient codeine cough syrup is subjective and providers should consider a range of factors when prescribing a medication that contains an opiate like codeine. These factors include medical history, symptoms and tendency toward abuse. Regarding student health centers and the University’s in particular, Rodgers said it’s not unusual for students to be denied codeine cough syrup because the health center practitioners often have limited knowledge of a student’s medical history. “[The Student Health Center] didn’t use to write codeine prescriptions at all. People would come see me and complain about that,” Rodgers said. In most cases, doctors use their personal discretion to determine the right prescription for a patient; according to Sarah Roberson, a physician’s assistant
on campus, the Student Health Center is no different. Roberson said each provider is an individual practitioner, and he or she decides on a case-tocase basis which prescriptions, if any, should be written. “Most of us try to limit those prescriptions. [Codeine cough syrup] wouldn’t typically be my first choice -- it’s more of a last resort,” Roberson said. When practitioners prescribe codeine syrup, it is typically in small quantities with low doses with no refills, according to Roberson. “On a campus with over 30,000 students, there will inevitably be a percentage of [patients] coming through the health center needing prescriptions like codeine syrup,” Roberson said. “The medication is reserved for patients with a very persistent cough that does not respond to other cough suppressants.” That doctors are using discretion in prescribing strong medications, yet it cannot be determined if that discretion is always accurate.
Jordan Lake Eagle Cam back online The live feed State professors installed last year returns just in time for two new eaglets’ arrival. Sarah Dashow Staff Writer
In October 2010, a camera was set up at Jordan Lake that broadcast a nest of bald eagles. While it was taken down after the eagles left, it was put back online just two weeks ago. The idea started with Ted Simons, professor in the biology department, who for the past few years has taken his class out to the lake to see the bald eagles. Occasionally he would visit the nest with his friend Francis Ferrell, biologist and member of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. “We were quite excited to be able to go 20 minutes from downtown and see an active nest, and when we were returning from the nest back in 2010, I said to Francis, ‘This would be really exciting for people in the Triangle who aren’t aware that bald eagles are nesting right in this area’,” Simons said. The problem, however, was the remoteness of the nest’s location. They enlisted the help

An eagle sits in its perch Thursday at Jordan Lake. Ted Simons, a biology professor, asked his friend John Wettroth, managing director of Maxim Integrated Products, to design a camera system to film the eagle nest and stream the feed live over the Internet. In early 2011 when the stream went live, the site experienced millions of hits from 36 different countries. Due to the high cost of the project, Simons handed over control to Wettroth.
“The fact that there are thousands of people watching this nest continuously provides the opportunity to gather information that would be pretty difficult to do any other way,” Simons said. Ferrell noted the new ability viewers have to chat with each other on the Ustream site where the feed was posted this
year. While the camera is back up now, Simons said due to a lack of time and funds, the project has been handed over to Ferrell and his science crew at the lake. “We had a such a great following last year that we felt it was worthwhile to take on the project again. We felt that the project did a great job of
making people in the Triangle aware that there are bald eagles nesting nearby, and we didn’t want people to lose that opportunity,” Ferrell said. Despite the University handing control over to other biologists, all involved with the project hope to see it continue.

tudent Government members are invited to attend all meetings held by the Board of Governors and speak on behalf of the students. Student Government members from each school in the UNC System attend these meetings. However, not one person in Student Government has the power to vote in any capacity at these meetings. The right to vote should be granted to them as it would be more beneficial to the student body. Last December, Student Government wrote a bill in opposition to the impending tuition increase. The bill, a unified submission of to the Board of Governors, spoke in the voice of the student body at N.C.
The unsigned editorial is the opinion of the members of Technician’s editorial board, excluding the news department, and is the responsibility of the editor-in-chief.
State. When this bill was submitted to the Board of Governors, it was ineffective and largely ignored. It should have been given more weight and consideration. No one should know better what the students’ needs and wants are than the students themselves. As much as students hate the increase in tuition, it is a necessary evil, and no one is denying it has to happen. The problem lies in students lacking a say in the amount tuition is increased each year and for how many years this increase will remain.
Currently, N.C. State students’ say in what happens in matters concerning their tuition lies in their power to elect the members of Student Government. In turn, those elected members can appeal to the Board of Governors. However, this influence is demonstrably inadequate. In order to have a more effective voice in student affairs, Student Government should be granted the right to vote. Each university in the UNC System should be granted one vote, which would mean an additional 16 votes.
If Student Government is to be taken seriously by the Board of Governors, they should be granted some form of official influence. A lot is expected of the members of Student Government, but without the ability to vote, they are effectively powerless. The ability to vote, even if the student voting bloc is small, will give students a voice in issues that matter to them. We pay to attend the University, so we deserve a voice in the happenings of our school. Giving this voice to Student Government is the easiest way to do this.
Ignoring the truth doesn’t change it
he other day I was sitting in my sociology class, and my professor asked the entire class two questions. The first question she asked was, “Do you all believe that women in A merica are still being oppressed?” Most of the class quietly said no, and very few Nijah people said Toshumba yes. She then Staff Columnist asked us another question: “Do you think racism still exists in our society?” and without hesitation the whole class said yes. Some even laughed like it was a rhetorical question, and the answer was obvious. I was left wondering how Americans, my peers, people I am sitting next to—something I would never have been able to do 50 years ago—can believe racism doesn’t exist today. Haven’t we c ome a long way? We have come f a r e nou g h to elect a biracial President . S ome progress has been made, but apparently not enough to fool my peers. It seems as though we have a couple more mountains to climb before America can be officially proclaimed a nation that accepts all people. Being on a large campus like N.C. State, which is a predominantly Caucasian institute, I found it welcoming when I discovered the diversity on our campus. Everywhere I looked there seemed to be someone of a different ethnicity. I was not expecting such diversity. That being said, it is wonderful our University is always trying to include every different background in order for everyone to feel accepted and welcomed. Yet, I still find flaws on the campus that are hard to overlook. As an African American, there have been difficult points in classes when I am outnum-
bered by the Caucasians in the room, but this has never phased me. What gets to me more is when there is a room full of students, and the seat next to me remains empty until someone is forced to sit next to me. It’s as though they are scared of me or any other seat in the room would be better than next to the “black girl.” I didn’t notice such behavior until it continued happening over and over. At first I just thought they didn’t want to squeeze down the aisle to get the last seat, but once I added my race in the equation, I started to think otherwise. I am willing to admit my assumption could be completely wrong or misguided, but something in me believes there is still racism on this campus. This is what I have come to realize: Just because you put people in a diverse setting does not mean they will change their ways of thinking. If anything, the environment w i l l probably force them to turn more toward their own racial group to feel comfort. Although our university is home to nearly 35,000 students, you rarely find groups of friends who contain several different races. You can observe this all over campus in the Atrium, the gymnasium or the dining halls. We have a horrible tendency to stick to “our own kind.” We’ve come so far, yet are still segregated. No, there are not separate dining facilities anymore or different sport teams for each race, but there might as well be. Unless something drastic is done to bring this to attention not only our student body but all of America—we will sit there, content as ever, as though no changes need to be made within our society.

Cheap coins, cheap trick
ast night, while I was slaving away on a pile of homework that was too large for this early in the semester, a noise from the television in the other room caught my attention. The noise was about the attacks on our Jon Lewis country on Staff Columnist 9 /11 a nd the United States’ promise that those responsible would “pay the ultimate price.” As someone who is politically conscious and has close ties to those attacks, I figured I’d go and see what the message was all about. As it turns out, it was a commercia l. As t he commercial went on, my bull**** alarm started going crazy. The commercial cut forward to May 1, 2011, the date Seal Team 6 carried out Operation Geronimo. The commercial showed dramatized footage of the ordeal, then cut to two sparkling coins with the Navy Seals on the front and the Twin Towers, the Pentagon and Flight 93 on the back. This was the point where my suspicion meter started rising. What really made the
alarm go off was when the anonymous commercial voice said the value of the coins was over $100, but I, the viewer, could buy them for $49.95. Also, if I called in the next 10 minutes, the price would be knocked down to $19.95. By the end of the commercial, I was offered a $240 value for just $19.95. What a deal, right? Well, it would have been a great deal if it wasn’t a complete scam. This commemorative coin that is supposedly a way to show off your pride and to remember our victory is offensive to me, a patriotic American, on so many levels. The money being generated from the sale of these commemorative coins isn’t going to be used to support the troops overseas or the military or even the government—not that they’d do the right thing with it anyway. The company minting this coin goes by the name Justice Coin LLC and Historical Coin Mint, and its business is making a profit off people’s national pride. Of course, it isn’t a crime to raise money in support of causes or to offer commemorative things to people for donations. As a matter of fact, those are good ways to show real support and care. But when you hold onto that money for yourself, you become deplorable. The organizations involved in the struggles being commemorated are the ones who really

deserve the money, not some jerk in Colorado. How can you assign a value to 10 years of war, of struggle, of loss and alienation of family, to all of the effort and torment the troops, to the bravery of Seal Team 6, to all of the lives lost in the attacks and the subsequent wars? How can you tell me that, for $19.95, I can show that I commemorate what has been accomplished? I have friends and family, as I’m sure anyone reading this does, who act as human commemorations. Do not forget the decorations the veterans bring back so we never forget. And, let’s not forget the PTSD they bring back with them either. I don’t understand how the announcer is okay with gleefully proclaiming the entire struggle can be boiled down to a value of $240. Everyone at N.C.

Wine selection, a classier route for students Exploring wine is an enriching experiment for those ready for a classier beverage. Frances Ellis and Nikki Stoudt Staff Writers
Natural Light and Burnett’s are staples at college parties, but they may have to share the limelight with a more sophisticated beverage. With vineyards all across the state, it was only a matter of time until wine made its way onto N.C. State’s campus and the guest list of nearly every party. Arielle Vari, a junior in nutrition science, grew up around wine, so it was natural for her to begin enjoying it as she became older. “My family is Italian, and they always drank wine,” Vari said. “I grew up being exposed to it.” But for others, wine is uncharted territory. Ryan Fulkerson, an NCSU alumnus, along with his partners Jeff Bramwell and Seth Hoffman, are co-owners of The Raleigh Wine Shop. They offered a brief summary on different types of red and white wines. Popular red wines, in order from fuller-bodied to lighter, are Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah/Shiraz, Malbec and Pinot Noir. Cabernet is from France, California and Washington, while Syrah is from Australia. For many of the past few years, Malbec has been a consistent go-to cheap red wine. Popular white wines, also in order from fuller-bodied to lighter, are Riesling, which is often sweet, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Grigio/ Gris. All these wines originated
wine Fun facts •
Studies show that red wine has polyphenols, which are proven to guard the lining of the heart’s blood vessels and protect against cardiovascular disease.
A chemical in red wine called resveratrol has been shown to have cardio protective and chemo protective effects in animal studies.
A 2007 study found that wine is an effective antibacterial agent against strains of Streptococcus (strep throat).
A 2008 report stated moderate red wine consumption may decrease the risk of lung cancer in men. Source: Clinical cardiology, journal of consumer marketing, journal of epidemiology & community health
in France. The temperature of the wine is a topic that is frequently raised. “Red wines are okay at room temperature, but if you can pop it in the refrigerator for five to ten minutes, you can get it at the perfect temperature,” Bramwell said. “White wines are best when you let them chill in the fridge for about 45 minutes first. A general tip is the lighter the white wine, the cooler you can drink it.” The old adage of pairing white meats with white wine and red meats with red wine still holds true, although Fulkerson suggests choosing a favorite. “Wine shouldn’t be any more intimidating than it has to be,” Fulkerson said. “Try and see what you like; be up for trying new things.”

Spotted in the Brickyard
The Raleigh Wine Shop on Glenwood Avenue gives guests a honest way of choosing wines with owners, Seth Hoffman, Jeff Bramwell and Ryan Fulkerson who handle everything in store.
Attending these vineyard showcases is not only cheaper, but also helps to support local growing vineyards in NC. “By buying locally made wines, you are getting an equally great wine for a lower price and supporting growers in the area,” Saylor said. With options like these and a little time and curiosity, it’s simple for college students to learn more about wine and perhaps even discover a few favorites. Vari, with help from her Italian family and personal explo-
ration at college, has begun to develop her own preferences. “I prefer red wine, specifically Cabernet Sauvignon, but lately I’ve been drinking Yellowtail, since it’s a good quality wine at an attractive price,” Vari said. “I like enjoying a glass of wine at dinner or when I’m out with my friends or boyfriend; it’s become an enjoyable aspect of life.”

Line sheets are records of information about the clothing, including things like pictures, sketches, and prices. For her own designs, Cansler usually chooses a theme that inspires her throughout the line of clothing; for the Charleston fashion week, her theme has been chandeliers. “I’ve always been obsessed with chandeliers because of their delicate complexities, their beauty and their function across the different decades,” Cansler said. She’s been working on incorporating many different aspects of the chandeliers, including their crystals and antiquity. “I was inspired by the shadows...and the colors from the beams through the crystals of the lights also affected my fabric and materials choices,” Cansler said. “One really cool thing I’m doing is taking old chandeliers from junkyards...I’m taking them apart and making the jewelry and some of the accessories out of those.” Nevertheless, her line of clothing for the Charleston Fashion week isn’t

Milk stout serves both strong and sweet Matthew Dear is beating a new drum Flagship beer from the acclaimed dark beer specialty brewery sweetens up the impression of stouts.
Dance music and its subversion makes way for new aesthetics.
Mark Herring Feature Editor
Duck Rabbit milk stout is not a beer for sipping. Calling it a beverage doesn’t suffice in explaining what this beer is. Duck Rabbit milk stout is a beer you bite into. It’s a meal. Unlike the popular stout icon Guinness, Duck Rabbit makes its stout with an addition of lactose sugar, a sugar that typical beer yeast cannot ferment into alcohol. However, the contribution of lactose gives Duck Rabbit’s milk stout a unique sweetness to balance out the bold, dark-beer flavors. Duck Rabbit is known in the local beer scene for its darkbeer niche. The lightest their varieties come is an amber ale, which could sink any other amber with its richness. Duck Rabbit’s flagship beer, the milk stout, does not stray from the brewery’s specialty. This milk stout is the milkshake of beers. The brewers from Farmville,
John Mitchell WKNC Assistant Music Director
Duck Rabbit milk stout is a rich, sweet and full-bodied stout. Brewed by Duck Rabbit craft brewery in Farmville, the stout has an alcohol content of 5.7 percent.
NC use a generous amount of dark, toasty malts to make this beer a stout, and with the bold coffee and caramel flavors with typical stout charred notes, the hops are almost unnoticeable in aroma or taste. The lactose adds depth and sweetness, rounding off the heaviness of the malt. Duck Rabbit is growing in
popularity in North Carolina and is one of the largest breweries in the state, so this beer is found on tap in many bars and bottled at the supermarket. However, this is a beer meant to be in a pint glass. The bottles tend to be flat, and for this beer, a creamy head tops off the experience. The carbonation also helps cut the richness.
Duck Rabbit’s milk stout is a beer to finish on, since every beer after will carry a syrupy stoutness. If you’re a fan of dark beers, this one may throw you off guard. Unlike German Dünkels, this isn’t a clean, crisp beer. Unlike Guinness, this isn’t a low alcohol session bar. Duck Rabbit is paving its own way with stouts. Instead of conforming to a standard you can’t top— Guinness—our neighbors in Eastern Carolina are changing our perception of dark beer. Not all dark beers taste the same. Duck Rabbit could be considered a gateway stout, w it h a sweet balance to its ty pical stout qua l ities. And like many gateway agents, Duck Rabbit’s m i l k s tout may turn you to the darker side of beer preference.
Matthew Dear spent his high school years in Detroit. Known for its prominence in the auto world and its highly industrial composition, the city is also the birthplace of a musical phenomenon: techno. Dear has been attempting to compound the industrial rhythm-base of the genre with pop melodies since his 2003 debut album, Leave Luck to Heaven. His next two releases, 2007’s Asa Breed and 2010’s Black City, showed a continued infatuation with the way he could work his disparate influences together. As both producer and primary vocalist, his music has always been keen on creating fully hashed musical ideas. On his newest work, Headcage, Dear seems to take it a step further, focusing on the flux in which his music exists at even greater lengths. Headcage opens up with a title-track that would have been at home on his other releases due to its centralized rhythmic components. However, as the EP continues, the songs lose their characteristic pulse, culminating in what may be Dear’s most deconstructed track to date, “Around the Fountain.” In that song, Dear implements a tribal-influenced drum pattern that loops in on itself, exposing a completely different feel from anything else he’s done. It is fascinating to think of the possibilities of what is to come for Dear--will he continue the focused intensity of his pop-via-dance trademark, or is there something else in store? It is also important to note how the videos Dear has re-

leased may foreshadow a musical change for his upcoming work. Charles Bergquist’s visual interpretation of Black City standout, “Slow Dance,” is homage to the contrast of the substantial and the ethereal apparent in Dear’s music. The video features stark scenes of skyscrapers, and dancers are overcast with a flowing oil mask. Glitch-heavy transitions are made to fit right in with the focus on fixation manifest in the song’s composition. The videos released for Headcage are much more lucid at their core. Featuring constantly shifting, organic bursts of color, nothing stays in focus for more than a split second. Both the visual companions of the title-track and “In the Middle (I Met You There)” reference the more ephemeral region Dear may be attempting to invade. Headcage is out now on Ghostly International. Look for a new full-length from Matthew Dear later this year.

N.C. State beats Boston College to move within one win of last year’s total. Rishav Dey Deputy Sports Editor
N.C. State defeated Boston College, 76-62, at the RBC Center to increase the tally to two conference wins in a row for the Pack. The Eagles, (7-11, 2-2 ACC) who were coming into the game on a two-game winning streak, had no answer for the Pack (14-5, 3-1 ACC), who dominated the entire game to move within one win of last year’s total. With sophomore forward C.J. Leslie back in the line up, after not starting the last game due to disciplinary issues, State started the game on the back foot with the Eagles opening the scoring. However, it was Leslie who opened the scoring for the Pack as State went on an early 10-0 run with the score 15-5 with 14:29 left in the first half. The Eagles, who had won the last time the two teams met, were not intimidated by a loud Wolfpack crowd, as they tied the ball game at 21 a piece with 8:42 to go in the first. That, however, proved to be the wakeup call the Pack desperately needed as they ran through the Eagles, ending the half on a 24-7 run. Leslie, who shot 100 percent from the field for 10 points, ran the show along with junior center Richard Howell and fellow sophomore guard Lorenzo Brown, who each had nine points. The second half was no

Gottfried felt his team’s improved performance on defense set the tone for the entire game. “I liked a lot about how our team played tonight, defensively,” Gottfried said. “I thought our ball pressure was better than it’s been in a while and it disrupted their timing. “We tried to really disrupt them from getting a lot of clean looks.” Gottfried felt the team’s positive performance on the break led to success offensively.
“When we had the ball in the break, a lot of good things happened tonight,” Gottfried said. “We found opportunities, a lot of deflections, steals; it really ignited our fast break, which I thought tonight was really big for our team.” Despite being under pressure to repeat the performance the team put up against Wake Forest last week, Gottfried said he told his team to concentrate on their own performance rather than worrying about their op-

Quote of the day “I thought we had great energy tonight at both ends of the floor.” Mark Gottfried, men’s basketball head coach
On every team, seniors are usually expected to lead the team and serve as mentors for the younger members. For Wolfpack men’s basketball, forward C.J. Williams, the only scholarship senior on the team, is that leader and mentor. Williams, who averages 12.2 points and 3.9 rebounds for State, said he believes the knowledge he’s gained over the past four years fits in well with the younger lineup. “On the court, I have a little more knowledge about the game because I’ve been through so much for four years now,” Williams said. “We’ve got a lot of smart guys on our team, so it kind of fits in.” Williams’ clout as a leader is also high with first-year head coach Mark Gottfried. According to sophomore forward C.J. Leslie, Williams, along with sophomore point guard Lorenzo Brown, serves as a coach on the floor. “I would say it’s both of their jobs,” Leslie said. “He knows that C.J. is older than the rest of us and he’s a very experienced player.” A key quality for any leader is their ability to perform off the court and beyond
