Students march on capitol with NAACP Sam DeGrave News Editor

While thousands of students ran through the streets of Raleigh in an attempt to see how quickly they could run five miles and stuff 12 doughnuts into their mouths, several other students took to the streets for a different cause Saturday morning. Students from various campus organizations, including the N.C. Student Power Union and the N.C. State chapter of NARAL ProChoice, marched in the seventh annual Historic Thousands on Jones Street rally.

The North Carolina NAACP led the rally, which featured more than 140 coalition groups and stretched from one end of downtown Fayetteville Street to the other, according to The News and Observer. The crowd, which The News and Observer estimated to be about 10,000 people, marched in protest of a broad range of issues ranging from poverty and abortion to a proposed voter ID law and Medicaid. However, one common sentiment united the groups — discontent with the currently Republican-controlled government of North Carolina. “They suggest this is how you fix America, this is how you fix North

Dara Russ, a senior in sociology and president of the University’s chapter of NARAL Pro-Choice, attended the march to advocate for women who she said are currently being denied access to health care. Though Saturday was Russ and her organizations’ first time participating in the rally, 15 people from the pro-choice group showed up to march. “A lot of people weren’t there for our organization, but they supported our cause, so they took some of the extra signs we made to help us,” Russ said.

Engineers fare well in tough job market Jake Moser Deputy News Editor

The Spring Engineering Career Fair took place this past Wednesday, and students looking for both jobs and internships could be seen trying to impress potential employers with resumes. Held at the McKimmon Center, the fair comprised of thousands of students and over 200 employers. Held biannually, the fair is one of the largest engineering expos in the nation, according to a University press release. The fair seemed like a packed concert, with students lining up for a chance to speak with their favorite rock star employers. However, the roles were reversed at times. Representatives were equally interested in the students and actively recruited their prospects for an engineering record deal. Kyle McKenzie, a junior in electrical engineering, was among those looking to connect with a big company. The event was his first and he named Cisco and IBM as his top places to potentially intern with. “It was a super good opportunity to network,” McKenzie said. “I was able to talk to three companies I really have a desire to work for and while waiting in line, I was approached by two people that wanted me to work for them.” Despite McKenzie’s experience, dozens of students waiting to show their resume to two

Not long after, runners began to come in all at once, and although the race had taken its toll on a fair amount of them, many stood tall, reveling not just in their own accomplishments, but in the joy they were going to bring to deserving children. “This was my first time, and I was glad to be part of such an established tradition,” Stephen Klingman, a freshman in aerospace engineering, said. “All the runners today, whether or not they were able to eat all 12 doughnuts or not, contributed to a huge cause, and I can’t wait to hear about what the money is able to do, or the lives that will be positively affected by it.” “If the doctor or nurse at the hospital sees a need not being met, or a shortage of some kind of resource, they can apply for a specific grant, the additional money we’ve raised

Facebook fatigue starting to spread Brittany Bynum Staff Writer

The most popular social media site, once proven addictive, is now slowly losing its users. Facebook may be making a headline in the stock market, but some of its users have decided to take a hiatus from it in 2013. According to WRAL Tech Wire, 38 percent of users aged 18 to 29 plan to

spend less time on Facebook. Research from WRAL Tech Wire also stated that 61 percent of users have already taken breaks from the site for weeks at time. The report refers to the effect as Facebook Fatigue. American adults bombard the web with their life stories, engaging moments and funfilled memories with 67 percent of them using Facebook, 16 percent using Twitter, and 20 percent using LinkedIn.

or three representatives poses some interesting questions: Do students benefit from the exposure of career fairs, or is it a hopeless wish in the current job market? A report by Eve Tahmincioglu of NBC News described career fairs as “a lesson in futility.” Too many people, not enough employers and not enough jobs were the sum of her findings. Jennifer Olson, a representative for EchoStar, a telecommunications company, supported Tahmincioglu’s evidence. “[Engineering career fairs at N.C. State] are usually pretty busy with a steady flow of students,” Olson said. “It really depends on the year, but [we hire] anywhere from one or two to 10 students per season.” EchoStar has almost 2,500 employees and hires only a handful of students from the thousands attending engineering fairs across the country. This could be the sign of a struggling economy or the illusion that career fairs are effective. Colt Jackson, who graduated with a degree in civil engineering in Dec. 2012, had mixed feelings about the ca-

opening the doors of social networking. While Facebook began mainly as a way of keeping in touch with friends, other sites have started focusing on more specific subjects, such as Instagram for photo sharing and LinkedIn for networking in the business world. Steve Larson, a graduate teaching assistant in the Department of Communication, believes the younger demographic of Facebook users have transferred over to Twitter and the older demographic has started to move toward LinkedIn. “I think people aren’t using Facebook as often because other sites are currently more specialized and dynamic,” Larson said. “Additionally, I believe that people still use it; however, people no longer use it in the same way compared to when it started. Now people’s parents are on it, making it more restricted in how people communicate.” Larson said he while he sees advantages to Facebook’s networking capabilities, the disadvantages stemmed from risking one’s privacy is certainly a matter worth considering.

Service that goes beyond doughnuts

T

he Krispy Kreme Challenge (K2C) wasn’t the only event making the world a better place this Saturday. While 8,000 participants in the annual fundraiser raced to raise $177,000 for the North Carolina Children’s Hospital, thousands also took to the streets for the annual Historic Thousands on Jones Street (HKonJ) march in downtown Raleigh. The HKonJ People’s Assembly Coalition is made up of more than 125 North Carolina State Conference NAACP branches and chapters, and more than 140 other social justice organizations. Since its formation in 2006, it has run “successful voting, mobilization, legal and public awareness campaigns” regarding public education, voting rights, and economic and racial justice. Its annual mobilization is held on the second Saturday of each February, with thousands marching from Shaw University, through downtown, to the North Carolina General Assembly on Jones Street.

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. Unless and until humans discover a cure for illness, donating money to a children’s hospital will remain a noble act. But beyond the purely human problems we face, there exist injustices and inequalities for which long-term organization and dedication are necessary. While a single child may not be turned away from the Hospital because of K2C’s efforts, many deep-rooted issues of our society will remain. These issues will likely require efforts that fundraisers driven primarily by a desire to have fun and take part in a tradition will not solve.

It is Technician’s opinion that N.C. State students should realize the gravity of these issues. We should strive to cultivate a spirit of service that permeates into our day-today lives and inspires us to taking part in meaningful, sustained service. One-off service occasions do good, but they cannot be enough in a world with as many wrongs as ours. That is where the value of HKonJ — both the organization and the march — emerges. The struggles for the rights of women, immigrants and GLBT individuals are necessary struggles, and though they cannot be solved

“... it is movements, not moments, that are needed to solve the pressing problems of our society.”

by committing one Saturday morning, N.C. State students should embrace them. As its website says, HKonJ is “a movement, not a moment!” — and it is movements, not moments, that are needed to solve the pressing problems of our society. While the K2C performs crucial service to our society, the many students who run in it shouldn’t fool themselves into thinking that they have done their bit for society, or that transient moments of service will solve the world’s problems. Rather, the K2C should inspire students to devote themselves to undertakings of a deeper and more persistent kind. A start would be marching in HKonJ next year.

Dirty Bingo: a symbol of a larger, overdue debate

T

here has been heated debate lately regarding the recent decision of the Union Activities Board to use student fees to purchase a variety of sex toys for Dirty BinJason Cockrell go night, and Guest Columnist their subsequent decision to use private funding instead of student fees. As the person largely responsible for taking this matter to the national media, this debate has never been about the legitimacy of the use of sex toys. Rather, it is a debate that cuts straight to the core of our conception of what a university is and how a university should function. To be sure, sex is a natural and very important part of life. But when was it decided that our University should be a general provider of all things relevant to life? A sharp divide exists between students who view the University as responsible for their education, and those who view it as responsible for their general well-being and happiness. It is this conflict of visions for our school, and not a conflict over sexuality, that gave rise to such strong emotions. If the University is responsible for our well-being, it should certainly be responsible for our food. Everyone needs food. Yet N.C. State does not provide us with any food at all. University Dining operates with autonomy, much like a business. They can bring in franchised restaurants like Taco Bell or create their own brands like

{

Wolfpack Subs. University Dining charges prices, not fees. Because we each purchase our own food, we get service tailored to our individual preferences. A vegetarian does not pay for someone else’s meat. This stands in stark contrast to Dirty Bingo, where students who were opposed to the event paid exactly the same price as students who were supportive. When the subject of campus culture and social life is discussed, people often assume the University must be responsible for subsidizing events. This is patently false. In my seven semesters at State, I have been involved with multiple student organizations that received no University funding whatsoever, instead thriving on minimal membership dues. Indeed, the very fact that Dirty Bingo ultimately secured private sponsorship proves my point exactly. In essence there are two ways to fund projects in any society. Either everyone can decide for themselves what they want to buy, or we can all throw our money in a big pool and then later draw money back out of that pool. In practice we usually meet somewhere between these two extremes, but the question remains of which is more effective. The process of drawing

money out of a pool is riddled with negotiation and often controversy. It is only because the money was ever put into a pool in the first place that this controversy exists. No one can complain about another person spending his or her own money on a sex toy. But anyone has the right to object when someone else buys a sex toy using collective cash. I n orde r to promote a more eff icient use of funds, we should view t he Un iversity as a source of education, period. At least, fees for non-academic purposes should be made optional. We would have more options and more cooperation if we viewed campus culture as being the responsibility of the students, not the University. In this way we can all come together, toward a common cause of individual autonomy. The alternative is continued partisan division and anger, because every collective spending decision will always benefit some at the expense of others. Subsidies only serve to promote waste and inefficiency. If we do not need the University to provide us with food, we certainly don’t need it to provide us with sex toys.

“...campus culture as being the responsibility of the students, not the University.”

Why capital gains tax is the worst tax ever

A

couple weeks ago, I wrote a column on the tax hike after the fiscal cliff. One of the important changes to the tax code this year is a big jump on the capital gains tax. Ziyi Mai I w rite Staff columnist this to explain why the capital gains tax is the most unfair and destructive of all kinds of taxes. Mitt Romney was embarrassed when the public discovered he had paid taxes on only about 13 percent of his income in recent years. Some people were shocked to know although Romney is an extremely wealthy man, he had paid less than most middle-class Americans do. But very few recognize the largest part of his taxable income was from the capital gain returns of investing money over time in non-physical capital, such as stock, saving, bonds, private equity and property. Even many people who realized Romney had a huge amount of capital gains still thought a low tax rate on capital gains is, to a large extent, a contributor to income inequality. But the truth is that capital gains tax is a punishment to smart people who work hard, a destructive force to the economy and discourages risk taking.

To do a favor to the people who think low capital gains tax is unfair, let me throw fairness into the equation. Yes, capital gains tax is unfair. But it is unfair in the sense of taxing income twice rather than ta x ing the wealthy too little. A simple example will illustrate how the capital gains tax works. Suppose Jones and James have the same income, $100 a week. The income tax rate is 20 percent for both of them, so Jones and James each pay $20. Jones spends the remaining $80 on his favorite food, salmon, but James has a different idea how to spend his money: He spends $40 on his favorite food, shrimp, and puts the remaining $40 in an investment portfolio that yields $20 after four weeks, which he can spend on more shrimp. The government sees James’ extra income and feels it’s unfair to let him own more than Jones, with their same initial wealth, so it decides to take 50 percent away of what James earned from his investment. This means James’ income is taxed twice. Before the capital gains tax is introduced, the income tax rate already treats everyone as equal. People have the freedom to choose how to spend their money, whether it is spending all of it right away or saving it for future

“ ...capital gains tax is ... a destructive force to the economy and discourages risk taking.”

consumption. However, the capital gains tax changes people’s incentive on how to spend their money and generates deteriorating outcomes. The nature of the capital gains tax works in the same as that of sales ta x. If t he government taxes shrimp and salmon at different rates, with a higher rate on sh r i mp than salmon, the tax may force James to buy salmon as a substitute for his favorite food. This is coercive because it forces people to buy things they don’t really want. Like sales tax, the capital gains tax deprives people of their freedom to choose how they would like to spend their money. The purpose of a well-designed tax code is to encourage the hardworking and discourage the lazy. What’s so terrible about the capital gains tax? There are two economic decisions going on: work versus sloth and saving versus spending. True, you want to encourage work and saving, while discouraging sloth and spending. Just as true: You must tax something. So it makes sense, at least to me, to tax all of these activities equally at the lowest responsible rate. The capital gains tax is violating this principle in every possible way.

Fiction Kitchen strives to be ‘locally different’ Kaitlin Montgomery Staff Writer

With quirky art adorning every vibrantly colored wall, Caroline Morrison and Siobhan Southern, co-owners of Raleigh’s new Fiction Kitchen, welcome customers into their imaginary world. Fiction Kitchen opened its doors Jan. 16 to a community eagerly awaiting its arrival. Community members played a large part in the creation of Fiction Kitchen through their support of Morrison and Southern’s Kickstarter campaign. “With the community’s help we raised a little over $36,000 and were able to buy all new equipment. The range and everything in there that the food touches is all new, even the exhaust system,” Morrison said. Fiction Kitchen’s diverse

clientele surprised Morrison. “We were thinking it was going to be people in or around their 30s, but it’s been across the board,” Morrison said. “I’m very happy about it.” Another surprise is that there’s more to their name then its obvious irony. “It’s part of the whole Fiction Kitchen,” Morrison said. “Not only fiction meaning we’re giving you food that you might not be eating or maybe you’re becoming vegetarian in a new way … it’s a whole dining experience. We want to take you away somewhere imaginary and have it be fun and interesting.” Morrison and Southern agreed that business has been anything but slow since opening their doors. “It’s been really busy,” Southern said. “Part of that is it’s that honeymoon period

where we’re the new restaurant. I think the key for us is two months from now trying to stay this busy, when no one’s coming along to just check it out anymore.” Originally the duo spent their Sundays serving brunch out of the kitchen where Morrison used to work, Mez in Durham. The two vegetarians explained they simply wanted a place to eat. “We wanted a good restaurant,” Southern said. “We felt that the kind of food we liked was lacking around here. You can get it in Asheville, D.C. and New York but there wasn’t anything in Raleigh that we were looking for.” With Southern’s artistic eye and Morrison’s dream, their idea was born. Fiction Kitchen is located at 428 S. Dawson Street, just around the corner from Ashley Christensen’s Poole’s.

“Ashley is a good friend of ours,” Southern said. “She’s been really supportive and even helped us raise money … She’s awesome. By and large, all the restaurant owners downtown have been so welcoming to us and so supportive. It’s like they don’t see anyone as competition, but as a group trying to bring good food to Raleigh.” The pair explained that because a majority of their menu is made from local produce, the menu will change along with the seasonal foods. Keeping the staples, the vegetables will rotate along with a few of the other items. “Right now there seems to be three favorite dishes,” Morrison said. “People like the barbecue pulled ‘pork’ with potatoes and seasonal vegetables, crispy fried ‘chicken’ and waff les, and braised tempeh with pesto

grits.” Southern stressed that while they serve only vegetarian and vegan dishes, they are by no means strictly a health food restaurant. “Of course we’re going to have healthy food but we have the fried chicken and waffle on the menu too,” Southern said. “Part of what we want to do is not just have vegans and vegetarians come here but people who are open-minded. We want people that are carnivores and omnivores, maybe someone who has never had a meal without meat in it. We want them to find something they can relate to and walk out saying, ‘Wow, I just ate my first vegetarian meal and it was awesome.’” According to the co-owners, their main goal is to make good food that is locally sourced. The fact that it happens to be vegetarian, in their

opinion, is just a plus. “We have great agriculture in North Carolina and to not support and celebrate that would be a mistake for any restaurant,” Morrison said. With some “constructive criticism,” as Southern calls it, Fiction Kitchen can only continue to grow. “We’ve been in the service industry long enough, we know we’re not going to fit everyone’s categories of what they expect us to be,” Southern said. “We only hope to fit the categories of those who didn’t expect us to.” Looking at the journey of Fiction Kitchen so far, the two summed up the restaurant in one word. “Local,” Southern said. “Different,” Morrison said. “That sounds good to me: locally different.”�

Students celebrate the service of companion animals Lindsey Schaefer Staff Writer

The Companion Animal Club’s members hail from different majors and interests, but they are each dedicated not to only spreading interest about companion animals but also informing the student population about the contributions pets make to their owners’ well-being. The club says these “companion” animals are far more than that. One of the organizations the Companion Animal Club is involved with is Hope Reins, a local group that rescues abused horses and helps children ages five to 17 who are dealing with life issues find comfort by interacting with the horses. “I wanted to make a difference in the lives of animals as well as people,” Jonathan Kim, a sophomore in First

Year College and vice president of the Companion Animal Club, said. The club has a speaker every meeting; most are from non-profit organizations such as Wake County SPCA and Second Chance Animal Shelter. Usually a speaker will come once a semester from an exotic animal organization such as the Carolina Tiger Rescue. The speakers help educate students on ways to give back to the animal community through volunteer work. According to Kim, the goals of the organizations are to cherish these animals for the services they are providing; getting people involved helps to keep the organizations running. “Animals could love a college student, a senior citizen or someone incarcerated in the same exact way,” Kim said. “There is no judgment,

just love.” trusty sidekick and seizure Kimberly Ange, a profes- alert dog, Ange said that sor in the Animal Science Standish’s life “was given department, back to her.” talked about The dog her friend, i s t r a i ne d Capt.

really a life companion that help make a person’s life better,” Ange said. Students can help these animals by providing time, shelter or even spare change to the Companion Animal Club or any of its associated organizations. According to Ange, staying with a college student is one of the best places a dog can be when training to be a seeing-eye dog or a service animal. The dogs cannot be afraid of loud noises, crowds, new people or changes in routine. A student volunteering to watch over a dog during its training to be a seeing-eye dog can help someone else later down the road. One way that the Companion Animal Club hopes to educate students more on the importance of companion animals is through their upcoming event, the Puppy

Kissing Booth. The event will take place Feb. 14 in the Brickyard from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For only one dollar, you can give back to organizations while getting the chance to play with puppies. The Companion Animal Club also helps students find animals if they have run away or been lost. If you send a picture and information to CompanionAnimalClub@ gmail.com, they will send the information to all of their contacts to help look for the animal. “There is a reason that N.C. State puts on programs like Pet-A-Pooch,” Kim said. “There has been extensive research done that if people spend consistent time around animals, it is helpful for their health and stress levels. Animals bring a happiness in our lives that isn’t found in a lot of places.”

Softball opens season with tournament win Luke Nadkarni Staff Writer

The N.C.

The win was especially satisfying for the Wolfpack af ter that same

Kansas team shut it out, 8-0, Friday. Overall, the Pack went 4-1 in the season-opening tournament, also tallying a win against Georgetown Friday and two victories against host Florida International Saturday. “I’m a little excited,” firstyear head coach Shawn Rychcik said. “It feels good, getting a win to open the season.” Sophomore pitcher Emily Weiman was one of the heroes for State, earning four

wins over the course of the tournament. In the championship game, Weiman pitched a complete game, allowing two runs on five hits with seven strikeouts. Additionally, she pitched both games Saturday as well as the win against Georgetown, in which she had 11 strikeouts and no walks. Despite the heavy workload, Weiman isn’t worried about her arm. “It’s a little sore, but I’ll be having treatment tomorrow,”

Weiman said. “So I’ll be all right.” On Friday, the Pack gave up an early run to Georgetown in the bottom of the first inning, but that turned out to be the only one they would allow, cruising to a 5-1 win against the Hoyas.

After dropping its last four road games and last three games overall, N.C. State (17-7, 6-5 ACC) has found itself back on the winning side in its travels after defeating the Clemson Tigers (12-11, 4-7 ACC) in the closing seconds. “We did not play very well early in the game,” head coach Mark Gottfried said. “We kept fighting, kept battling and we found a way to win the game.”

Senior Staff Writer

Led by five players in doubledigit scoring, the Pack trounced Clemson Sunday afternoon on Kay Yow Court at Reynolds Coliseum. Redshirt sophomore guard Len’Nique Brown, sophomore guard Krystal Barrett, junior guard Myisha Goodwin-Coleman, junior forward Breezy Williams and redshirt junior forward Lakeesa Daniel all scored 10 or more points. “I felt like we shared the ball well,” head coach Kellie Harper said. “The thing I told our team in the locker room, ‘this was a very good team win.’” Goodwin-Coleman and Williams tied for the team lead with 12 points, and played an essential role in the Pack’s 79-45 victory. “We made some adjustments early in the first half, and I thought our players handled it really well,” Harper said. “We did what we needed to do to get a win.” State’s game plan was evident from tip-off: get the ball inside. The Pack excelled, outscoring the Tigers, 36-10, in the paint. Senior guard Marissa Kastanek drilled a three from the corner in the opening minute, giving the team a 3-0 lead it never looked back from. State never trailed in the game and led by as many as 39 points. The Pack opened up a 6-0 lead before the Tigers attempted to mount a comeback. Clemson kept the score close throughout most of the first half, but State mounted a scoring run to end the first 20 minutes of play, leading by 13 points.

Junior guard Myisha Goodwin-Coleman drives past Clemson’s Aisha Turner Sunday Feb. 10 in Reynolds Coliseum. The Wolfpack defeated the Tigers, 79-45.

An adjustment to a press defense led to the Pack running away with the score, outscoring the Tigers by 21 points in the second half. “Coach had us pushing the ball up, just to try and get us in a groove, and just get the offense running,” Brown said. “When we move the ball more and penetrate, it makes the offense look much better.” The team led not only in the final score, but also in just about every other statistical category: points off turnovers, second chance points, fast break and bench scoring. “The word that I put on the board for our team, for this game, was ‘focus,’” Harper said. “I thought if we maintained our focus we would fin-

ish strong.” Of the five scorers in double digits, Goodwin-Coleman, Williams and Daniel’s contributions were off the bench. State led 38-12 in bench scoring. State shot 40.3 percent from the field, while Clemson shot 26.4 percent. The team also out-rebounded the Tigers 51-37. The Pack (12-12, 4-8 ACC) will be back in action Thursday when it takes on Florida State (19-4, 9-3 ACC) in Tallahassee. “When you have a lot of different people play well and do positive things for your team, it’s only going to make us a better team moving forward,” Harper said.

N.C. State fought valiantly, almost defeating No. 21 Maryland Saturday with a late pin in the last match. Taking an early lead with pins from juniors Nijel Jones and Matt Nereim, the Wolfpack got into the third match of the meet leading 10-0. Maryland then proceeded to win the next four matches, going up 16-10. In match eight, junior Joe DeAngelo came away with a win by point total, putting State within nine points with one match left.
