Student’s counseling needs not in budget Jess Thomas Staff Writer
Last year, more than 4,000 N.C. State students went to the University’s Counseling Center to receive help with personal issues. Due to budget cuts, understaffing and high demands for counseling, officials at the center said they are unable to serve students as effectively as they’d like. According to Monica Osburn, the director of the Counseling Center, the recommended ratio for counselors serving students on campus is one counselor for every 1,000 students. Osburn said the Counseling Center employs 18 counselors, but for a
student population the size of N.C. State’s, the Counseling Center needs 23 counselors. “The ratio of counselors to students can range from 1:1000 to 1:1500, so at the very minimum there should be one counselor per 1,500 students,” Osburn said. To maximize the amount of students that are seen by the Counseling Center, Osburn said each student seen by the center receives a limited amount of personal time spent with a professional. According to Osburn, not having enough counselors to meet with students has been an obvious problem at the University, and students have commented about their issues with not being able to meet with a counselor as much as they want to.

“The feedback that we receive from students says that students don’t get to see the counselors as often as they would like,” Osburn said. “Counseling is usually every week because of the high demand at N.C. State, but most of our counselors can only see the students every other week.” Miranda Day, a freshman in the First Year College, said she has experienced problems with the counseling center due to the overbooked schedule. “Sometimes I would have an appointment, and I would go and wait 20 minutes before they would see me,” Day said. “If I originally had an hour-long appointment, I would

Solar research receives criticism Joseph Havey Staff Writer
ETHAN HYMAN/THE NEWS & OBSERVER
N.C. State solar cell research has led to an entirely new theoretical model about how solar cells are manufactured. However, critics caution that real-world benefits are a long way off. Linyou Cao, assistant professor in the department of materials and science engineering, published a paper last month in Scientific Reports detailing a new solar cell manufacturing model that, if developed, could drastically reduce costs and increase efficiency. “In solar-cell creation and manufacturing, a key challenge is that the cost is too high,” Cao said. “To decrease cost, we need to optimize the manufacturing process, which makes up the majority of solar cell

Five N.C. State student organizations, MAITRI, EKTAA, UAB, Delta Sigma Iota and Kappa Phi Lamda, will host a Holi celebration today at Harris Field from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. According to Saransh Gupta, a graduate student and president of MAITRI, N.C. State’s Indian Graduate Students Assocation, a symbolic legend explains why Holi is celebrated. The word “Holi” comes from “Holika,” the name of the evil sister of the demon king, Hiranyakashipu. Hiranyakashipu was given special powers that led him to feel superior and demand that everyone worship only him. His son, Prahlada, disagreed with him and remained loyal to Lord Vishnu, which infuriated Hiranyakashipu. Hiranyakashipu

Because these crimes happened 15 or more years ago on foreign soil, Subotic asked the audience throughout the lecture, “Why should we care?” According to Subotic, the stillongoing ICTY trials have major consequences internationally. One of these consequences is the precedents being set by international political bodies. “The international policy makers—the U.S., the European
The Department of Student Health Promotions will introduce a new leadership program in fall 2014 that will give students the opportunity to advocate for campus wellness and help the University follow guidelines for the American College Health Association’s recent Healthy Campus 2020 initiative. According to Stephanie Sobol, the associate director of health promotion at N.C. State, students who participate in this program will tackle issues on campus relating to the ACHA’s goal to promote quality of life, healthy development and intellegent health behaviors on college campuses. Though the exact name of the position has not been decided yet, Sobol said the position will be called something along the lines of a wellness leadership ambassador. “These people would be ambassadors for comprehensive wellness,” Sobol said. “It would cover all of the dimensions of wellness, so not only physical, but also emotional, intellectual, spiritual, occupational, environmental and social.” The pilot group for the program

Yugoslavia, which is a body of the United Nations that addresses genocide, ethnic cleansing and other crimes that occurred during the Yugoslav wars. According to Subotic, who experienced the war firsthand, several military leaders on all sides of the conflict were convicted by the ICTY at the Hague in the Netherlands, but were later acquitted because there wasn’t evidence that they directly ordered the acts of torture, ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity of which they were originally convicted.
“This isn’t just about a lack of justice, this is about the hardening of the narrative of what these wars were about,” Subotic said. “Pardoning these leaders because we don’t have evidence that they directly ordered these crimes is a strange standard and not a standard that had been applied before. This is controversial from a legal perspective as well as a political perspective.” These acquittals—some of which occurred as recently as last year— have created a “huge disillusionment” in the human rights community, especially among the victim’s

“The structure we’re proposing can absorb 90 percent of available solar energy using only a 10 nanometer thick layer of amorphous silicon,” Cao said. “The same is true for other materials. For example, you need a cadmium telluride layer that is one micrometer thick to absorb solar energy, but our design can achieve the same results with a 50 nanometer thick layer of cadmium telluride. That’s a huge advance.” Cao said this research is a step forward from current solar-cell manufacturing processes because it’s an entirely new design model. After researching similar solar-cell related issues as a Ph.D. student, Cao said he continued after becoming an N.C. State faculty member. “When I started at N.C. State, I started thinking about the more basic questions—what is the final upper limit for solar absorption,” Cao said. “It can’t be infinite. The existing theory couldn’t answer that question, so I had to come up with an entirely new theory.” At this moment, it’s all still theoretical, Cao said. But be-

cause of the design, it should be easy to commercialize, as it can fit current thin-film manufacturing facilities. Right now, Cao is looking for an industrial partner to implement the design. However, thin-film solar cells are not widely manufactured in the U.S., said Tommy Cleveland, a Solar Center engineer. “A fairly small percentage of solar cells fall into this category, and right now, the majority of solar today is made of crystalline silicon panels, which is not the same thing as thin film,” Cleveland said. However, Cleveland said the solar community should receive this research as a “theoretical success.” “They haven’t yet built their idea,” Cleveland said. “It’s designed to minimize costs in the manufacturing process, which is a great thing and important for the continued growth of solar energy. But, it won’t have a direct impact on the panels you can buy and install until it’s manufactured at low cost.” Also, thin film hasn’t lived up to the promise of providing cheaper solar energy in the past, Dan Lezama, owner of Sun Dollar Energy of Raleigh, told the Triangle Business Journal in February.

“Thin film has been around for a long time, and we have always hoped it would provide cheaper solar, but it has not delivered as of yet,” said Lezama, who did not return the Technician’s requests for comment. “Up until now what has happened is that anything more efficient is more expensive. Anything cheaper is less efficient. Any new technologies will ultimately be measured by the yardstick of the existing silicon-based PV technology, and it will have to compete on a cost-power-watt basis, which up until now thin film has had a hard time doing.” Cao declined to comment about skepticism about his research. Cleveland said skeptics have to remember current solar cell technology took decades to produce cheaply. The challenge is now to use Cao’s design in high volume low cost manufacturing, he said. “Whenever there’s a dramatic change to the manufacturing process, it takes a long time to fine-tune the details,” Cleveland said. “But I still think this research is a great thing that has the potential to have a big impact on solar energy generation around the world.”
Fifth-annual NCSUxTED Staff Report
The fifth-annual TEDxNCSU will take place Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Talley Student Union Ballroom. The “x” in TEDxNCSU represents the fact that the event is a similar experience to an official TED talk, but it’s planned and organized independently. TED created the TEDx concept as an effort to spark more discussions
worldwide and encourage people to share ideas worth spreading. According to the TEDxNCSU website, this year’s theme is divided into three sections of talks, the Preparation, the Venture and an Ongoing Destination of life’s unpredictable journey. The event will also feature two performances. The line-up of this year’s TEDxNCSU includes talks from students and faculty

Union and the United Nations—have made these legal responses to human rights abuses by the ICTY a proxy for respecting human rights,” Subotic said. “For example, the EU has directly tied Serbian and Croatian cooperation as ways to measure for membership.” According to Subotic, the countries involved in the Yugoslav wars simply had to arrest a few military leaders and extradite them to be tried at the Hague. “This has set up the way in which we regulate human rights and justice internationally,” Subotic said. “This opens up a lot of space for elites to abuse the system. ‘Oh you want us to extradite these five people and we’ll get the benefits of EU membership? Okay, that’s the end of it.’

Sending individuals to the Hague has closed this discussion instead of opening it up.” The ICTY trials have also created a hostile environment in the Balkan region because no Croat was convicted of any war crimes against the other ethnic groups involved, which has led to Serbians distrusting international legal tribunals. “This current crisis has led to a very unstable environment for larger transitional projects in the western Balkans and viscious political fallout and hardening nationalism in those countries,” Subotic said. Subotic said the acquittals also created the idea that Croatians did nothing wrong in the Yugoslav war. In fact, Ante Gotovina, a retired Croatian general convicted of crimes against humanity including ethnic cleansing charges, was greeted in his home country as a hero upon
his acquittal. “This narrative that certain people have done nothing and that they didn’t commit
any crimes will perpetuate in the media and in education in these countries,” Subotic said.

students who will concentrate on advocating for wellness within the dimension that most interests them while also using their unique skills to help achieve goals, Sobol said. Sobol said if a student is interested in something such as policy change, research or grassroots movements, they will be able to apply those skills toward wellness projects that interest them specifically. “We’re thinking like, if it’s service, marketing or research a student wants to do, what objective does that tie back to?” Sobol said. “I don’t want to force anyone into an
area that they aren’t interested in. I think that would cause the program to flop.” According to Sobol, recruitment for these positions will begin in the fall semester, and students in any major or grade level with an interest promoting health and wellness are able to apply. “We’re really trying to be out-of-the-box thinkers when trying to make our campus a healthier campus,” Sobol said. While the specific budget for the program is still being worked out, Sobol said the possibility of the positions being paid is still on the table. “I don’t want anybody to
think of it as a job, but is there at least a way to acknowledge the students who take that extra step to be a leader?” Sobol said. “Maybe that is not an hourly wage, maybe it’s just a stipend to acknowledge the work that they are doing. The budget has still yet to be defined.” Patrick Povinelli, a freshman in the First Year College who attended a focus group discussing the new program, said he thinks the idea of a wellness ambassador seems like a good opportunity, but the ability to get paid would make him much more inclined to apply for the posi-
tion. “It would be addressing an important issue, but I have so much going on in my life already,” Povinelli said. “I think I would be much more committed if it was a job instead of another extracurricular.” Sobol said, regardless of pay, the wellness ambassadors will gain valuable leadership and professional experience through their work in the program. “Within this program there will be opportunities to earn certifications and possibly attend conferences to help students grow their own
said. Angel Bowers, a professional counselor at the center, said in order to maximize the number of students that the counselors see, the center has increased the number of group programs for students. “Each counselor is able to see eight to 12 students at once,” Bowers said. “One thing that is important to understand is that group counseling is just as effective as individual counseling, and it is a weekly group meeting.” Osburn said sometimes counselors feel overwhelmed with the amount of students they see each day and the number of interactions they have. “From a counselor’s perspective it is pretty difficult listening to everything that students are struggling with,” Osburn said. “We have interactions with students multiple times a day. When you’re
doing it five to six hours a day, it can get emotionally draining.” According to Osburn, students attend counseling for three main reasons, anxietyand stress-related issues, depression and relationship issues. “Those three have been the top three reasons, not only here at N.C. state, but also nationwide for years,” Osburn said. If there are students who urgently need to meet with a counselor, Osburn said they are able to walk in and speak with a professional immediately. “We always have our walkin times, in case anybody is in crisis or experiencing suicidal thoughts, or experienced a traumatic event,” Osburn said.

so that the U.S. and Israel could later use this precedent to acquit their own leaders of future war crimes. Another problem with the trials, according to Subotic, is the ICTY was expected to bring peace to the region and reconcile the different ethnic groups instead of simply trying leaders accused of war crimes. “There is a mismatch of the scope of what they should do, which is to prosecute individuals,” Subotic said. “But the main thing is that they’ve expanded to try and foster peace and reconciliation in the region. The entire process of post-conf lict justice has been put on the shoulders of the court. When things went downhill, the court was to blame.” In reality, scholars are finding very little evidence that courts can provide liberal order and peace building, Subotic said.

That le s s on i s really just a shout out to the most Nicky prominent Vaught Staff Columnist example of passive voice in American political rhetoric. The example, “Mistakes were made,” might as well have been Richard Nixon’s catchphrase. But the mantra has been and is still used by many politicians. In 2007, social psychologists Carol Tavris and Elliot Aronson published a book, Mistakes Were Made (But Not by Me), which explored how we rationalize our behaviors on personal and social levels. Most importantly, they explored the importance of how we use rhetoric such as that three-word, political catchphrase to def lect fault and blame from ourselves. Get it? N.C. State students may recall the controversy surrounding the student body president election last spring, as one of the candidates was revealed to have posted several homophobic, sexist and Islamophobic remarks online. He dealt with the situation by diverting the blame from himself, claiming the remarks were the works of his meddling friends on all of his social media accounts. We, as a people, have difficulty admitting our faults. We have even more difficulty owning the mistakes that arise due to these faults.

Though his reasoning for recanting his statements seems a bit lucrative, he does seem to have grown from the experience—even if that just means he will no longer donate to conservative, anti-gay organizations. Angus T. Jones, known for his role as Jake Harper on Two and a Half Men, urged his audience to stop watching the show, as it fills our heads with filth. Jones said he was a “paid hypocrite” and does not agree with the messages or jokes the show puts out. Jones cited his newfound faith in Christianity as the source of his guilt, claiming additionally that he would prefer to act in “Bible-based stories.” Cathy and Jones both identified the detrimental effects of their actions and decided
to make a change. Though Cathy said he wished he could retract his statement because of the damage to the company’s image, he still understood the implications his words had on the LGBT+ community. He was able to rise above personal beliefs and demonstrate that a company (composed of many workers with vast political affiliations) and its CEO don’t have to support the same values. Jones had no reason to deter audiences from the show other than his own guilt. He didn’t try to rationalize his involvement with the show, arguably taking more blame than deserved. These are only two examples, but they exemplify taking responsibility incredibly well. We learn from Cathy that sometimes it’s best to put personal biases aside for the sake of fostering a welcoming environment. From Jones, we learn to take notice of how we contribute to a system of oppressive attitudes and behaviors. I urge everyone to take notice of Cathy and Jones’ examples. People must understand that owning up to our mistakes yields far more respect and far better results than attempting to def lect blame. Everyone makes mistakes.

Other commentators say the killings, forced displacement, reprisals, and other actions may not technically constitute genocide, but rather are ethnic cleansing.

thinking about the issue. I used to think all Photoshop was bad and that it was ridiculous that people didn’t just love themselves for who they truly are. But after reading an excerpt from Tina Fey’s book, I no longer hate Photoshop. I don’t think it’s acceptable to slim someone down by 20 pounds, but making someone look the best they can possibly look without changing them too much is okay. Take it from Tina Fey. “Feminists do the best Photoshop because they leave the meat on your bones. They don’t change your size or your skin color. They leave in your disgusting knuckles, but they may take out some armpit stubble. Not because they’re denying its existence, but because they understand that it’s okay to make a photo look as if you were caught on your best day in the best light.” Sometimes pictures are altered just to look better, not to make society believe that the person on the cover of a magazine is the ideal perfect person. If our younger generations are taught that those pictures have been altered, there is no harm done. All that needs to be said is, “She just wanted to look nice for the cover of the magazine because millions of people would see it, and though she is comfortable with herself, she wanted to look the best that she possibly could.” Nobody is up in arms about Instagram filters or the new

Some individual nations expand the definition of genocide to include groups classified by age, sexual orientation, gender, political “condition”, health, or, as with France, “any other arbitrary criterion.” And while the UN Convention limits prosecutable genocide, UN Resolution 96, passed in 1946, describes genocide as, “a denial of the right of existence of entire human groups”, “when racial, religious, political or other groups have been destroyed in whole or in part”, and whether committed by “private individuals, public officials or statesmen,
When Raphael Lemkin coined the word genocide in the mid-1940s, he focused on one shade of meaning of the roots gen and genos, one with the suggestion of race. But there are other shades attached to them as seen in the English words genesis, engender, genetics, generate, generation and genius, which imply “beginnings” and “family.” Progeny means “offspring.” So, given the power and potential breadth of the word “genocide”, and given that every person’s life begins at fertilization, the violent, widespread, governmentprotected abortion of pre-natal children could be considered genocide based on age.

State clogging team to compete in nationals Megan Stitt Staff Writer
Clogging is the state folk dance of North Carolina, and N.C. State is one of three universities in the U.S. to have a clogging team. The Wolfpack Clogging Team was founded in 1989, making this its 25th year of existence. It was originally founded as a class, but then transformed into a competing team. Harriet Myers, junior in human biology, and Amanda Bolick, junior in marine biology, are the two codirectors of the team. According to them, clogging is similar to tap and an Irish step dance, but it’s more defined in that the steps are looser, creating more rhythm and sound. Both Myers and Bolick started clogging at a young age: Myers when she was six and Bolick when she was eight, after doing tap for five years. Both said they fell in love with it and continued to clog throughout middle and high school. Myers said she was going to stop clogging when she got to college even though she knew about the team, but said her mom made her try out for the team. “And then you met me and you couldn’t leave,” Bolick said. Bolick’s college clogging story is different. She said she was deciding between Mars Hill University and N.C. State, the only two of the three universities whose clogging teams actually compete. “And then you met me and you

couldn’t leave,” Myers said jokingly in return to Bolick. The team has grown to double its size this past year. The girls attribute it to getting the name out on campus more. They said the team has tried to participate in everything they can, just to let students know there is a clogging team here. “There’s a lot of people that grow up clogging who have no clue when they come to N.C. State that there is a team, so when they find out they’re

ognition — just getting our name out there.” Though there are no men on the team now, there used to be many, and its current faculty advisor, Chip Futrell, was one of the founding members of the team in 1989. However, this has not caused a lack of diversity within the team, according to Myers. “I really love the variety that we have on the team this year,” Myers said. “All the girls on our team are
very different, and they all come from different backgrounds, but we all have one thing in common: clogging.” For most of their competitions, the team has to travel. Although their rides can be long, Bolick said she loves the experience because of the bonding that happens along the trip. “When we travel — and I love that we get to travel together — we all get to know each other and we become friends, not just teammates,” Bolick said. “We have inside jokes and have a ton of fun together. This really adds to the competition environment because these are not just the people you dance with, they’re your friends and you love them.” The Wolfpack Clogging Team qualified for nationals at its last competition, which was the team’s last chance. Myers and Bolick said they showed off a new dance and put in the extra hours. Normally, they said they practice every Thursday and every other Sunday, but in preparation to qualify for nationals, they added practice to every Sunday, instead, as well as extra hours of practice to get the job done. The team heads to Cadence Nationals the second weekend in April in Asheville, N.C. There it will meet with other teams, most from private dance studios, to compete. The Wolfpack Clogging Team will take two new dances, along with two of its favorites, to clog its way to the top.

Can the real Will Grayson please stand up? Co-authors John Green and David Levithan came together to give the young adult world a tale of two teenagers of the same surname... and forename. But as true to the basic knowledge of humankind, no two persons are the same. Will Grayson, Will Grayson shares the story of a nerdy, straight boy and a Goth, gay boy of the same name that play the sidekicks to a gigantic, proud, gay man named Tiny Cooper. Though sharing a key point of identity, Will Grayson... and the other Will Grayson could not be more different. Tiny’s character is larger than life, but does remind John Green fans of the infamous Pudge in Looking For Alaska. It is clear from both authors that Tiny is the leading man of the novel, but the writers intended for the second men to have the narrative voices instead of dear Tiny (who knows where the novel would go if he told the story). Green wrote Will Grayson, Will Grayson, with odd numbered, capitalized chapters and Levithan wrote the even numbered, uncapitalized chapters. Originally, the novel started as a simple project between friends. On the tumblr page, “WG, WG Questions Answered” readers have the opportunity to send questions to Green about the novel. “I wrote chapter one while David was writing chapter two,” Green said on the tumblr page. “Then we met at my

apartment in New York City and read our chapters out loud to each other.” Green said after these first chapters, they were both convinced they could turn the project into a book. “I wrote chapter three while David wrote chapter four, and then we met to read those aloud to each other,” Green said. “This process continued over more than a year. We discussed plot occasionally—especially the stuff that happened with the two Wills together—and we discussed the overall shape of the novel (we wanted it to be shaped like an X), but mostly we just read to each other and then kept going.” This novel is the first of Green’s to deal with homosexuality, but even more, it addresses the idea of coming out. Levithan beautifully depicts his Will Grayson’s inner monologue and argu-
ment about being out and the change in relationship with his mother. However, the book is meant to be lighthearted, so there is not a lot of prejudice about Will’s sexual identity or the struggles he may face in the high school setting. The revelation to his friend Maura is the biggest drama that unfolds with Levithan’s Will coming out. At the time it was published in 2010, making a fake profile to lead a person on was not only unheard of, but shockingly hard to handle. However, since current readers are more desensitized to this, Maura’s use of it was cruel, but not completely foreign. Will Grayson, Will Grayson is a great co-authored novel. Green wrote about a character he has known and related with before, but also one who brings life and love together for both narrators.

Alumnus fights sexual violence through film Kevin Schaefer Assistant Features Editor
With N.C. State being a top-notch engineering school, some might think a film studies degree from the University would be useless. However, one of the school’s alumni is proof that this is a false assumption. Dav id Ha mbridge, a n alumnus from 2009 with a B.A in film studies and a minor in creative writing, said he has continually advanced his career as a filmmaker by making both documentaries and commercials for television and the internet. “I was able to be my own creative entity, running my own business as a freelancer,” Hambridge said. Despite his current success, Hambridge said he had no idea what his career path would be when he started college. “I actually was at a point where I didn’t know what I wanted to do in college when I started as an undergrad,” Hambridge said. “I thought about where my interests were, and I always liked making music and videos growing up, so I decided to declare a film studies major.” After transferring to N.C. State from East Carolina University, Hambridge said he found internships in Raleigh and Wilmington through N.C. State’s Film Studies Program. “I was fortunate enough to be thrown in the middle of the professional world while
I was still a student,” Hambridge said. “I met a lot of contacts downtown while doing an internship over on Triangle Boulevard, and it picked up like a snowball from there.” During one of his internships, Hambridge said he shot a lot of web videos with the people he was working with that became really popular. He also said he had a friend
“It’s all about people being autonomous and individual. Freelance is a power,” David Hambridge, film studies alumnus
working for The News & Observer, who gave him advice about freelancing and things such as which camera worked best. “It’s all about people being autonomous and individual,” Hambridge said. “Freelance is a power. Even President Obama talked about in a recent speech how freelancers are the future. When you’re doing it for less money and you have the right skill set, you can really go places.” Hambridge’s most recent project is a documentary titled, My Masculinity Helps. The film, which was made possible by a grant through
the University, examines the help of African-American men and boys in the fight against rape and sexual violence. Hambridge co-directed the film with Marc Grimmett, an associate professor in curriculum, instruction & counselor education. “My interests lie in documentary storytelling and in being authentic with the subjects being portrayed in my films,” Hambridge said. “I want to be true to the story I’m telling, while giving it my own touch. I establish trust with the people who are the subjects of these documentaries. It’s almost like doing a job interview. The more comfortable they feel the better.” Although Hambridge said he enjoys commercial filmmaking, he said he often has to fight for creative freedom during projects. “When you’re working with a corporation, the marketers like to have control over the creative process,” Hambridge said. “I often have to ask for creative freedom when marketers want to be involved in every step of the process.” Though he does storyboards, Hambridge said he hasn’t been able to write films as much as he did in college. Though he took screenwriting courses while at State, he said his work now has less of a narrative emphasis. “I’ve done some shorts, but with the business I have and the way it runs, I don’t have as much time as I used to,” Hambridge said. “While I would like to focus more on

the narrative, the business side does tend to get in the way.” In terms of advice he has for current film students and aspiring filmmakers, Hambridge said the most important thing is autonomy.
“You have to find a sense of autonomy and learn the hard technical skill sets,” Hambridge said. “It gives you leverage, because the skill sets are high in demand. You’ve got to know everything from directing and producing to
editing. The more you know the better. It’s a lot of work, but it’s worth it.” For more information about Hambridge and his films, check out his website: www.davidhambridge.com.
Tazza Kitchen is calm, warm for a date night Katie Sanders Assistant Features Editor
Tazza Kitchen recently opened its doors in Cameron Village, and it’s perfect for a date. It’s quiet, close and fancy enough for a night out. The restaurant seems to be set up to give a modernized rustic impression. There are wood-paneled walls and wooden beams across the ceiling, but everything is minimalistic, colorful and clean. For example, the napkins seem to be hand-woven and are a pure, unstained, perfect white, and the silverware is arranged in patterns across the tables instead of laid out straight. Wine bottles are arranged artistically on the wall, and there are tall windows to let in natural light. Alternative hits play softly in the back-
ground, a calm enough genre not to be too distracting but still contemporary. The dining area is nicely separated from the bar by a median topped with plants, partitioning the space and making it warm, inviting and easy to converse. There is also an outside dining area, and a larger space in the back for groups, which is complete with bright blue seating. However, the best part of the atmosphere was the wood-burning, brick oven in the back, which is also used in the preparation of all the dishes. The smell is divine — the scent from the wood fire and the dishes that are currently being cooked permeates the whole restaurant. Moreover, it was pleasant to be able to watch the goingson behind the scenes. The service is fantastic.
One of Tazza Kitchen’s dishes is a pan-roasted cod with black lentils, salsa verde, pickled fresno relish and cilantro.
The waiter or waitress leaves a glass bottle of water at the
table for when it’s needed, but still comes by to pour drinks quite often. My waitress was also quite happy to recommend her favorites from the menu and talk about how the dishes are made. The restaurant uses seasonal ingredients and has a small but rotating menu. About half of the menu was taken up by the day’s brick-oven pizza choices, which Tazza Kitchen

is extremely well known for. It also offers a variety of other entrees, including salads and mostly seafood.

of my dining partner’s steak with peppercorn potatoes. Both were not quite as good as they could have been, but they were not bad by a long shot. They both could have been more flavorful, and the steak could have been a bit moister, which was strange as it was beautiful at a perfect pink medium-rare. However, the ingredients were fresh, the presentation was elegant and the portions were larger than expected for a sophisticated meal. The restaurant is pricey on a student budget, especially when the food was not fantastic, and is probably not suited for casual dining with friends. But, considering the energy of the place, the evening I spent there was decidedly pleasant. Although it’s not necessarily everyday dining, I would definitely recommend Tazza Kitchen to couples looking for a more upscale meal that won’t completely break the bank.

N.C. State hits road for three-game series against Terps Christian Candeloro Staff Writer
A week after being swept by the No. 2 Florida State Seminoles, N.C. State will look to get its ACC title bid back on track this weekend against the Maryland Terrapins (136, 2-4 ACC) at Shipley Field in College Park, Md. The Wolfpack (14-5, 3-3) swept its opening ACC series against Notre Dame, but State’s trip to Tallahassee, Fla. last weekend saw its six-game winning streak come to an abrupt end. The Wolfpack has been terrific at home this season, with a record of 12-1. However, it has struggled mightily on the road, going 2-4 when playing outside of Raleigh. N.C. State will get a chance to improve its mediocre road record this weekend against the Terps. Maryland has also been dominant at home, with its only two losses coming to powerhouse Florida State. But like the Wolfpack, the Terps have been suspect on the road. Maryland has drawn a difficult slate of teams to begin their season, with their first three opponents of the ACC season (No. 1 Florida State, No. 13 North Carolina
and No. 11 N.C. State) all ranked inside the Top 25. N.C. State head coach Elliott Avent will be hoping for a much-improved performance from the Pack’s recent disappointment in Tallahassee. Of State’s 14 wins this season, eight have been by five runs or more, but Avent said in several postgame interviews this season that his team’s overall mentality needs to improve. “If you play this game hard, it’s amazing what can happen, but we can’t figure that out,” Avent said after a 17-4 win over North Carolina A&T on March 5. “We’re too caught up in stats and numbers and ourselves right now. When we do figure out how to play hard, we have a chance to be a good baseball team. But right now, we’re not.” State’s junior pitcher Carlos Rodon (2-3, 2.45 ERA) has fallen victim to poor run support in his starts this season. The Wolfpack offense is averaging just 2.4 runs per game in Rodon’s starts, rendering the ace of N.C. State’s staff essentially helpless. Rodon will draw Terps senior starter Jake Stinnett (2-3, 2.91 ERA) Friday in a matchup of veteran ACC starters.

Junior catcher Brett Austin tries to locate a pop fly in left field during N.C. State’s matchup with then-No. 19 UCLA at the USA Baseball Complex in Cary Mar. 1. The Bruins knocked off the then-No. 6 Wolfpack, 2-0.
State’s Saturday starter, sophomore pitcher Logan Jernigan (3-1, 1.55 ERA), has pitched terrifically so far in 2014. With Jernigan pitching well, the Wolfpack has a dangerous one-two punch in Jernigan and Rodon. However, the sophomore righthander will draw perhaps his toughest matchup of the year against Maryland’s freshman right-hander Mike Shawaryn (4-0, 1.26 ERA) Saturday night. Shawaryn has been the
surprise story of the year for the Terps, boasting the fifthbest ERA in the ACC (Jernigan is seventh). On Sunday, the Wolfpack’s sophomore southpaw Brad Stone (30, 3.09 ERA) will likely get the starting nod against the Terps’ sophomore righthander Kevin Mooney (0-1, 2.45 ERA). Though the Pack’s pitching struggles this past weekend can be chalked up to Florida State’s talented lineup, N.C. State’s offense has been in-
consistent on the whole this season, but a bright spot has emerged in the form of freshman third baseman Andrew Knizner. The freshman star has burst onto the scene in Raleigh, leading the ACC in batting average (.448) and slugging percentage (.621). Junior catcher Brett Austin has lived up to expectations this year. The preseason third-team All-American is second in the ACC in batting average (.391). But to make another run to Omaha, the
Pack will have to get more production from its upperclassmen, including junior second baseman Logan Ratledge (.206 batting average) and junior left fielder Bubby Riley (.231 batting average). The Pack’s first game of its three-game series against Maryland will begin Friday night at 6 p.m., with games on Saturday and Sunday afternoon to follow.

QUOTE OF THE DAY “We started missing a lot of free throws, a lot of uncharacteristic things started happening” Ralston Turner, junior guard
N.C. State saw its 16-point lead over Saint Louis evaporate over the final eight minutes of regulation as the Wolfpack lost in overtime to the Billikens, 83-80, eliminating State from the NCAA Tournament in the second round for the second straight season. “Our players are heartbroken, and I’m proud of them,” head coach Mark Gottfried said. “I’m proud of the year we had. Today obviously we’re going to always feel like we let one slip away.” The Pack was dismal from the stripe Thursday night against the Billikens, going 20-of-37 (54 percent) on the night. State missed 10 of its 18 free throws over the final three minutes of regulation. Sophomore forward T.J.
Warren had 28 points and eight rebounds against Saint Louis, but went 6-of-14 from the free throw line. Sophomore guard Tyler Lewis was uncharacteristically loose with the ball against the Billikens. Lewis had seven turnovers, but also gave the Pack eight points and six assists on an up-and-down night. Junior guard Ralston Turner also had a solid game for the Pack, scoring 16 points on 5-of-10 shooting. The Billikens got off to a hot start thanks to senior forward Rob Lowe. Lowe, who finished the night with 22 points and 15 rebounds, hit three straight from 3-point land to give Saint Louis an early lead. But State responded immediately, going on an 11-2 run to take the lead. The Billikens went on a 7-0 run to end the first half and shot 71 percent (5-of-7) from deep
in the first 20 minutes, but State went into halftime holding on to a 30-26 advantage. The Wolfpack ran out to a 55-39 lead with 8:14 remaining, but then the madness began as the Billikens began their furious comeback. Saint Louis’ employed a suffocating full-court press on defense that gave the Wolfpack offense fits, causing numerous turnovers and forcing the Pack to the free throw line. “They were pressuring the wings and we couldn’t get into our offense,” Lewis said. This strategy proved very effective for the Billikens, which capitalized on the Pack’s miserable night from the charity stripe to methodically chip away at State’s lead. With 30 seconds left on the clock, senior guard Jordair Jett tied the game for
Saint Louis with a layupand-one, but missed his free throw, giving State one final chance to win the game with the score tied at 70. After receiving the inbounds pass, Lewis tried to find Warren, but the Billikens’ defense surrounded the reigning ACC Player of the Year, forcing Lewis to take the final shot. Lewis pulled up at the elbow for an open look, but his shot rimmed out as the clock hit zero, sending the game into overtime. Saint Louis grabbed an early lead in the extra period, a lead that it never gave up. With the Pack down by five points, a layup by Lee cut the Billikens’ advantage to three points. On the ensuing inbounds pass, Warren grabbed the steal and made a layup, earning an opportunity to complete the and-one play.
But Warren’s ensuing free throw clanged off the front of the rim, and the Billikens held a one-point lead with 30 seconds remaining. Warren fouled out moments later, leaving State without its leading scorer for the game’s final 28 seconds. Saint Louis missed two free throws on its ensuing possessions, giving State one last chance to tie the game with a 3-pointer in the closing seconds. Turner got a semi-contested look from three feet beyond the 3-point line, but his shot clanged off the front of the rim as the clock struck zero. “We just have to take the positive from it,” Lewis said. “No one expected us to make the NCAA Tournament, and we proved everyone wrong and hopefully next year we can come out and do the same thing, plus more.”
Wolfpack set for BYU test in first round of NCAAs Rob McLamb Assistant Sports Editor
After a season of defying expectations while overcoming deficits and injuries, N.C. State travels to Los Angeles Friday to face Brigham Young in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. The No. 16 Wolfpack (25-7) will be making its first appearance in the NCAA Tournament since the 2009-10 campaign, when State dropped its opening round game to UCLA. The Wolfpack will be the fiveseed in the Lincoln Region. N.C. State is 19-21 overall in NCAA tournament play and has reached the tournament 22 times in its 41 seasons. The berth is the 17th overall for N.C. State head coach Wes Moore. The first-year coach was named a Naismith Finalist for the National Coach of the Year award Wednesday. This season marked the 11th time in Moore’s career that his team has won at least 25 games. The Pack’s trip to Los Angeles will also be a homecoming for senior forward Kody Burke. The three-time Academic All-American hails from Southern California and enters the NCAA Tournament averaging 15 points and 6.3 rebounds per game, both second on the team to senior center Markeisha Gatling. N.C. State will have to carry on in the tournament without seniors Myisha Goodwin-Coleman and Lakeesa Daniel, who suffered ACL injuries on consecutive days in February. Burke said she remains bullish on the Pack’s chances in March. “With Coach Moore’s system and

the personnel we have in the system, we can do well,” Burke said. “He just understands the system well. He scouts teams well. I feel like we can go on a great run, and we went through the ACC. The hard part is done, I think. We can make a great run.” BYU is making its third consecutive appearance in the NCAA Tournament. The Cougars received an at-large bid to the tournament and will enter play with a 26-6 record. Head coach Jeff Judkins is in his 13th season in charge and he has led his teams to postseason play in 10 of those years, including six in the NCAA’s.
The Cougars have four players who average double-figure scoring, led by Jennifer Hamson. The senior center averages a double-double on the season, posting 18.3 points and 11.2 rebounds per game. Sophomore guard Lexi Eaton is not far behind at 16.9 points per contest. Eaton connected on 40.9 percent of her threepoint attempts in the Cougars’ 2014 campaign. The postseason matchup will mark only the third time the two teams have faced each other on the hardwood. Both schools won in each other’s gym in their previous two meetings, with N.C. State edging the Cougars, 67-65, in the last contest
in 2005. Junior guard Len’Nique Brown, who played eight minutes for the USC team that knocked BYU out of the WNIT in 2011 in Provo, Utah prior to transferring to State, is the only Wolfpack player to have ever faced Brigham Young. Tip for N.C. State against BYU is set for 6:30 p.m. Friday. The winner will face the winner of the game between four-seed Nebraska and 13seed Fresno State with a berth into the regionals in Lincoln on the line. The Wolfpack has not won a NCAA Tournament game or reached the Sweet Sixteen since 2007.
