Talley architects present updated plans The new student center, with 1,886 seats planned, will have about 700 more seats than the current one. The amount of meeting rooms will also increase to 16, as well as the number of available seats in these rooms by Chelsey Francis almost doubling them to 776 seats. Staff Writer Turan Duda, the head architect, said, Friday afternoon, the architects “We have several thoughts we worked from Duda Paine Architects, based with throughout designing this.

The University Board of Directors hosted a Meet the Design Team event Friday. The lead expansion design firm, Duda Paine Architects talk to students about the project that will transform student life. Russ Holcomb, principal designer of the project, explains the latest building model while students ask questions about the design strategy. Holcomb said “this project has created a partnership with the N.C. State community, and I am excited to work with ... students.”

There is a pedestrian bridge planned to cross the railroad from Broughton Hall and connect to the new student center. The pedestrian bridge will approach the planned green roof of Talley. A technology tower was also been included in the plans. “The idea of the technology tower is to give this generation of N.C. State

students something to be proud of, like the Bell Tower was in the past,” Duda said. The actual construction will likely be broken down into four different phases, according to Mandy Russell. Overall, the square footage of Talley will double, and it will seem more presentable to campus.

“Right now, coming up Morrell Drive, the first thing anyone sees of Talley is the loading dock,” Duda said. “We want to make it seem more open, more approachable and more like a part of campus. This will make it seem more visually connected, both within itself and to campus.”

Barrel Monster creator unveils new work in Cameron Village Joe Carnevale sculpts giant knight to guard corner of Cameron Village, judges student street art for Scrap to Sculpture contest Kate Shefte Executive Editor

Joe Carnevale, a senior in history and the creator of the now-infamous Barrel Monster sculpture on Hillsborough Street, has come a long way since last summer. Far from distancing himself from the police, he now has the respect and gratitude of charity groups and local businesses. Instead of snatching traffic barrels off the street and throwing them into the back of his car, Carnevale received dozens of recycled street signs and used them to create a “Street Knight” at on a corner of Cameron Vi l lage in honor of Earth Day Saturday while curious shoppers and a smattering of fans wandered by. “It’s easier,” Carnevale admitted. “It’s less fun. The first three or four nights of going around and cutting down signs would have been fun, but I would have had to do a lot of it. And I don’t have to worry about the Raleigh Police Department coming after me again.” Carnevale prepared parts of the knight at home but assembled the piece in three hours, mostly through what he called “winging it.” He didn’t sketch out the piece, preferring instead to measure it up visually. Carnevale, who calls himself a “dime store celebrity” since finding fame for his street art last year, has since stopped creating Barrel Monsters. “I did like six barrel monsters and got sick of it,” Carnevale said. “I think everyone else got sick of it, too.” Pat Hunnell, an independent public relations consultant contracted by Cameron Village for their Earth Day celebrations, remembered Carnevale’s work and looked him up on the Internet. “We met and had lunch. I asked him if he would consider being involved and he said yes,” Hunnell said. “He saw it as a way to create this

piece of art that he’d been considering but hadn’t moved forward with because he didn’t have the materials. He was excited to put his vision to life.” Carnevale envisioned being constructed from cautionary road signs. Hunnell called around and couldn’t find a supplier of traffic signs, but found a company that was willing to donate the street signs. Hunnell said it turned out better than she imagined. “He has a marvelous eye and sees these things,” Hunnell said. “I’m completely fascinated.” The sculpture will stand in Cameron Village for two weeks. If it doesn’t become a permanent fixture there, Carnevale plans to sell it to a local gallery. Though he now has a public stamp of approval for his work, Carnevale said he isn’t going soft. “I consider selling out to be when you let the fact that you’re getting paid for it influence what you’re making,” Carnevale said. “I already had this idea to begin with. If they had come to me and said ‘this knight is a little too violent. We want something more subtle,’ I would have taken it somewhere else.” After Carnevale completed the Street Knight, he lent his services to the Scrap to Sculpture contest, which was open to thrifty high school and college students around the Triangle. Each contestant received a $100 gift card to the Scrap Exchange to gather materials and create an original piece. Not surprisingly, most artists opted to pursue a theme in honor of Earth Day. Laura Maruzzella, a senior in art and design at N.C. State, helped students from Green Hope High School and the Washington Boys and Girls club create a bucket full of brightly colored flowers. Their sculpture took first place and won the club $1,000. “We went to the scrap exchange and bought vinyl records [to make the flowers],” Maruzzella said. “I boiled them ahead of time and brought them to the Boys and Girls Club to arrange as flowers. We made a little garden.” Maruzzella heard about the contest from her boss, who she said always informs her of community art contests and projects. Maruzzella, who was a week removed from debuting her line

She still had paint on her hands when the judges inspected her club’s piece. “[The Boys and Girls club] painted the flowers and stems,” Maruzzella said. “They brought it to life.” Second place went to Duke University student Jason Tian, who created a piece using an old lampshade, window blinds and a crown made from Christmas tinsel. His sculpture, called “Rags to Royalty,” was vandalized in the days leading up to the judging. The artwork itself was kicked over and the chains around it were moved to another part of the shopping center. Tian held the sculpture together while he explained the inspiration behind his work. Third place and $500 went to two State students: Elina Inkiläinen, a graduate student in forestry, and Brunell Gugelman, a graduate student in natural resources. They created an aluminum tree with leaves made from plastic bottles and flowers made from pieces of soda cans. Pat Boyle, marketing director for Cameron Village who arranged Scrap to Sculpture, Carnevale and a representative from LeChase Construction Services judged the contest. Boyle said Cameron Village planned to host the contest again next year and said hoped for a better student turnout. “I talked to a few professors [at N.C. State] and they said the timing was bad because of finals,” Boyle said. “But we can’t change Earth Day. It’s got to be this time.”

At Hillsborough and Dixie, A new restaurant, Time-Out, opened. It offers southern dishes and 24/7/365 dining. Eddie Williams, owner of Time-Out, said the restaurant is open under most circumstances, including acclimate weather. The restaurant now provides both UNC and NC State students with late night meals with the addition of its newest location.

Time-Out offers 24-hour eatery for students New Hillsborough street restaurant opens Friday evening Jessica Highsmith Correspondent

Time-Out, a 24-hour southern cuisine restaurant, opened Friday on Hillsborough street at the former location of the Big Kahuna Bar & Grill. The restaurant has been a late-night focal point for Chapel Hill students for over 32 years and will now cater to the N.C. State community as well. According to owner of the TimeOut restaurants Eddie Williams, location is key. “The Chapel Hill location is in front of Granville Towers while this one is located right beside University Towers, off of Hillsborough Street,” Williams said. “We feel right at home with this location.” Williams said about his inspiration for the popular restaurant that he had college sports and food in mind. “It’s a great university concept. N.C. State was the next step after Chapel

Hill and we hope to expand to other large universities in the future,” Williams said. Although the new location is centered in the heart of one of its rival universities, Chapel Hill students do not seem to mind. Kat McKenney, a sophomore in computer science at UNC, said she was happy about the Raleigh addition. “I don’t think anyone will be bothered by it; most people probably don’t even know there’s one opening,” McKenney said. “They’ll probably just be happy they can go there whenever they visit State.” Williams said he was excited for the opening on Friday, although there is still a lot of work to be done. “There is still a lot of fine tuning in the process. I consider the opening on Friday a ‘soft opening.’ Although we are unlocking the doors now, there will probably be a grand opening closer to August when everything is completely in place,” Williams said. N.C. State students have been anticipating the opening of Time-Out off Hillsborough Street, and should

Time-Out has long been popular for their warm, southern-style Chicken Cheddar biscuits – a big, warm fluffy treat with a full fried chicken breast fresh off the bone, Williams said. “The chicken cheddar biscuit has always been a favorite, but I always gravitate toward the carved baked turkey. I joke that everyday is Thanksgiving here,” said Williams. The new restaurant has been in development since Jan. 1 and is now open at 3001 Hillsborough St. It serves the same menu as the Chapel Hill location. “I think there is a high demand for something like this on Hillsborough Street and I will definitely be going there in the future,” Cronin said.

{Our view}

The Facts:

It’s Dead Week which, according to University policy, means professors should not assign extra assignments or assessments in the lead up to exams.

Our Opinion:

Make sure professors adhere to the policy or quit using it.

or many students, the week before exams has become anything but the Dead Week it’s supposed to be. The original intent of the week was to allow students a time to review and begin preparation for exams. Instead, Dead Week has become an opportunity for professors to assign last minute papers, projects, tests and quizzes — despite University policy to the contrary. The essence of Dead Week has disappeared. Most students do not even acknowledge its presence anymore; it has simply become the week before exams. The end of the semester is a stressful time for most everyone, especially seniors who

are fast approaching graduation. Why have a “Dead” Week that in reality is just as “alive” — if not more hectic — than the other weeks throughout the semester? Students deserve ample time for exam preparation regardless of what form it takes. They should have the opportunity to spend the week before exams concentrating on studying, but at the very least to have a week that is less stressful than exam week. As students approach their final years of college, the effects of stress become more and

more apparent with other concerns such as post-graduation plans. Students need at least one week where they can count on a reprieve from major assignments and assessments. Different students will always have different ways of dealing with stress and finals, but Dead Week must be the period that allows them to deal with those pressures in ways they see appropriate. Classes shouldn’t necessarily be cancelled, but they’re only going to be effective if they help students prepare for the end of the semester; professors

must provide an opportunity to review material for finals to facilitate that process. Assigning papers and projects — or having them due — destroys the intent of Dead Week. It should either be treated as a week of review and preparation for students, or it should cease to exist. Some professors adhere to the policies concerning Dead Week, but others certainly do not — it’s an unnecessary inconsistency and one the University administration has the ability to correct. Students would like a week for review and preparation, but let’s not call it something it’s not. Dead Week is either dead, or it’s not.

Would you use steroids?

ince its U.S. release last summer, several of my friends have begged me to watch “Food Inc.” — essentially challenging me to devote this column to it. Lying in bed late on Satu rday nig ht with my girlfriend’s Netflix account, I acquiesced. The inspirRussell ing docuWitham Executive Editor ment a r y by Robert Kenner — and Participant Media, the same people who brought you “An Inconvenient Truth” — jumped headlong into the corporate farming industry, showing people what they didn’t really want to know — but needed to hear. It mystified me with its candid tapestry of vegetable libel laws, industrial seed manufacturing and meat production. How could things have gone so wrong? How on earth does one libel a vegetable? And why must Bessie stand ankle deep in her own feces? I was disturbed, and there was only one solution to my restless sleep: wake up Sunday morning — let’s be honest, that means 11:30 a.m. — and go to McDonald’s. The seductive smell of fat fryers, processed meat and highfructose corn syrup pulled me through the doors and left me plump, dumb and happy for just a tad more than $4. Life was good, and I could now give an honest reflection on one of the film’s last — and most quotable — lines, “To eat well in this country costs more than to eat badly.” The aphorism is right, I could certainly have gone out to the farmer’s market off Centennial — just minutes away from the McDonald’s on Western — and bought produce that was fresh, in-season and local. It would have cost more — perhaps twice or thrice as much — but would certainly have saved my arteries some pain and suffering. So I asked myself: what is my health worth? What is Bessie’s standard of living worth? What is the cost of not doing anything? The truth is that sugar should come from a cane, not a kernel; steer should eat grass, not corn feed; and cloned seeds make about as much sense as cloned

people. We should be vilifying farmers who put steroids in their cows and chickens — and the companies who force them into the practice — the same way we scorn baseball players who use human growth hormone. Monsanto, Perdue, Smithfield, Cargill and Tyson, along with hundreds of other corporations, are making Americans overweight at disgusting, and unethical, rates. They don’t physically force people to consume processed sugars and meat, but they’ve made it the only viable option for millions of people through the affordability of their products and those products proliferation through the marketplace. It’s not even about the environmental impact or sustainability; this is a public health crisis. Companies, under the watch — or lack thereof — of the federal government are essentially forcing Americans to supersize themselves with the control they have over the food we eat. Is the bottom line really worth it? Collectively, we’ll have to pay trillions in public health bills so that a few multinationals become fabulously rich. It’s not right, and it has to stop today. Paying more in the short run for grass-fed meat, free-range eggs, steroid-free milk and local, in-season produce will make the populace healthier — the real solution to health care. As I sat at McDonald’s and looked at the obesity around me, I realized I would happily pay $10 for the same $4 meal if the food was produced in such a way that it didn’t prematurely kill Americans from diabetes. I’m not calling for the end of fast food and corporate food production — that’s blithely unrealistic. But it’s time policy makers — which includes all of us three times a day — to issue an edict toward the end of deceptively inexpensive food. To let legislators know that obesity and a frail health care system are really symptoms of a broken food system. Bessie should eat grass; food shouldn’t be synthesized in a lab; and Americans have a right to healthy lives. Send Russell your thoughts on the commercial food system and its issues — or lack thereof — to letters@technicianonline.com.

On an over all level, I like to think I’m still the same person as far as my opinions and mentality go. However, I’ve learned a lot this year. Very cliché, I know, but also very true. This year, I learned that doing what you are good at and doing what you enjoy are two very different concepts. While doing what you are good at may be easy, doing what you enjoy is far more fulfilling, and frankly, has a higher motivation rate. My message: choose to do what you enjoy over what you are good at, career and otherwise. Another valuable lesson learned is forgiveness. I’ve learned that not only is forgiving someone and mov-

ing on with your life surprisingly uplifting, it also puts the situation in a perspective that allows you to take from it the lesson it carries and throw away the rest. Saying “I forgive you” doesn’t mean you’re OK with what has happened, but rather shows you are ready to move on from it. I’ve seen far too many people who want to “fight the problem” and “make a point;” in all reality, it’s a waste of time and makes no difference whatsoever in the long run. As cheesy as it seems, I owe the fact that I learn the things I learn, and make it through each day because of a group of very important people I like to call my friends. They have been caring, understanding, forgiving, tolerant, patient and most importantly, supportive of me — and that means a lot more than I make apparent to them. It’s so incredibly important to have a very strong support group in today’s world, because, let’s face it, reality is nobody’s best friend; it helps to have friends that make reality just a little bit more tolerable. Let’s not forget that the reason we’re in college is not just a social life. Yes, the time for exams has arrived, and it brings with it stress, fatigue and a lack of time in the day.

RESUME THAT WORKS FOR YOU STUDENT RESUMES SHOULD COMMUNICATE PERSONALITY AND POTENTIAL STORY BY CHRISTINE URBOWICZ

W

hether you’re looking for summer employment, applying for an internship or preparing to graduate and enter the work force, there’s one thing that you will definitely need: a resume. By nature, a resume is simply a summary of a person’s accomplishments and work experiences. The main goal is to attract an employer’s interest and land an interview, which will hopefully lead to employment. Ken Farnaso, a freshman in biological sciences, created his resume at the end of his high school career but has since been forced to rework it. “I created my original resume in high school,” Farnaso said. “Since then, I have had to update it several times to make sure it reflects what I have accomplished since I have been in college.” Carol Schroeder, director of the University Career Center, explains that there are many elements that students need to remember when they are creating, fine-tuning or updating their resumes. “Different readers are looking at different things on your resume. Employers look for a candidate who is organized, has good communication

skills and work experience,” Schroeder said. “The resume that is most impressive is the one that stands out among applicants.” For example, your work experiences from one job may not fit the requirements for another position, so there’s no need to include them. Instead, people should look for items that highlight how they would be a good fit for a particular position. Schroeder also said that resumes should reflect the personality and style of the individual. Despite what some may think, there is not one commonly accepted guideline for how a resume should look. The cardinal rule for writing a resume is to make sure all information presented is accurately and truthfully.

Students should include their objective and education toward the top of the resume. Additional categories such as courses, projects, experience, leadership, honors and activities should be prioritized and presented in a way that highlights the candidate’s strengths. “I have my most important qualifications in reverse chronological order under each subheading,” Sarah Smith, a freshman in First Year College said. “I focused on my accomplishments and activities that demonstrate wellroundedness and leadership.” Schroeder said employers reading resumes are looking for potential in applicants. The primary messages that should be communicated to the reader are who the student is and what his or her capabilities are. Most employers know in the first three to five seconds of looking at a resume whether or not they want to call someone for an interview. “Students need to have a resume that does not simply list job duties, but one that gives a meaningful and effective description of what they did,” Schroeder said. “Specific examples are needed. Employers want to know what skills were used, what problems were solved and what the value of your experience was.” Schroeder also said resume updating should be an ongoing process that should occur at least once a semester. “Updating a resume forces a student to evaluate where they are in the career decision process,” Schroeder said. “They should be learning to understand who they are, and deciding what experiences are most important to put on a resume helps them consciously figure out which experiences and organizations help them grow as a person.”

Tips for a great resume LET THE NUMBERS DO THE WORK

When trying to highlight the work that you’ve done, quantify your experiences and qualification s with numbers. For example, saying that you increased company profits by 55 percent is a much stronger statement than “increased company profits.”

DO NOT LIE

Looking for a sure way to not land the job? If so, just lie on your resume. Sure, your work experiences may not sound as interesting as you think, but refrain from lying on your resume. Credibility is a huge thing, and the last thing that you want to do to tarnish that is start off a potential relationship with a lie. Plus, most companies do background check s and other things to verify information, so to put it simply : be truthful.

TO YOUR WORDSchoice is PAY ATTENTION ssor will tell you, word

PROOFREAD, PROOFREAD AND PROOFREAD AGAIN

Before submitting your resume, make sure that you proofread it from beginning to end. In order to do this, actually print out the resume and read it on paper. Do not rely on word processors to do your job for you. It also helps to have another person look over your resume. Often times, another set of eyes will catch things that you do not.

ONE OR TWO PAGES WILL SUFFICE

Save the long pitches for the interview. Your resume is a place to provide the employer with a snapshot of yourself. You want to provide him with the bare necessities. All of the irrelevant information should be omitted. For example, when applying for a job in the marketing industry, some work experience that you acquired while working in an unrelated field is not relevant.

THE RESUME IS NOT AN INTERVIEW

Despite what many believe, the resume is not what usually secures a job. This is the purpose of the interview. In order to land the interview – that may or may not subsequently result in a job – you want to provide employers with a resume that will lead to them requesting an interview.

WHITE SPACE IS YOUR FRIEND

Resume readers are like most people. They tend not to enjoy reading gobs and gobs of text. In order to avoid having your resume placed in the trashcan immediately, use white space to provide the reader with an escape.

Health care reform: perceptions and realities A BREAKDOWN OF WHAT HEALTH CARE REFORM REALLY ENTAILS AND SOME COMMON MISCONCEPTIONS STORY BY STEPHEN BEHAN

O

n March 23, President Barack Obama signed his comprehensive health care legislation into law. For decades, this has been the mission of many political leaders. However, until now, no one has been able to deliver on anything similar to the bill that was fast-tracked through Congress a month ago.

Along with this monumental piece of legislation, however, there has been a great deal of turmoil along party lines. Many argue that this bill stands to incur a lot of unneeded debt. According to the Congressional Research Service (CRS), a nonpartisan branch of the Library of Congress, the Unit-

The new bill will end the “preexisting condition” clause used by insurance companies: True

ed States spent about 17 percent of its Gross Domestic Product (GDP) on health care in 2007. In comparison to other industrialized nations, this figure is significantly higher. On the flipside, the U.S. was also the only wealthy industrialized country in the world without some kind of

The new bill will increase the national debt: False The Congressional Budget Office estimates that the health care reform bill will reduce the national debt by $143 billion over the first 10 years it is enacted.

Six months after the bill’s enactment, insurance companies can no longer deny children coverage based on a preexisting condition. Insurance companies will not be allowed to deny anyone based on a preexisting condition after 2014.

Everyone will be covered: False

The government is “taking over health care”: False

Currently, about 47 million Americans are uninsured. The new health care bill is expected to expand coverage to 32 million currently uninsured Americans.

The new law is a regulatory one. No public option or government owned insurance policy would be created as a result of this bill.

The bill will close the “doughnut hole” in Medicare D: True

Tax money will be used to pay for abortions: False

The bill will gradually close the Medicare part D coverage gap (The “hole” is a gap in coverage of prescriptions. If a patient pays between $896.25 and $4,350.25 for prescription medication, Medicare will not cover any of the cost).

The new law separates funds from private premiums and taxpayer funds. To get abortion coverage, a person would have to make a separate payment to another private account. The only exceptions are in cases of rape, incest and when the life of the mother is at risk.

universal health care system before the sweeping legislation was signed into law. Countries with nationalized health care systems, such as France, Canada and the United Kingdom, spent nearly half as much per capita and percent GDP as the United States. Canada spent 9.6 percent of its GDP on its universal health care system. France spent 9.7 percent and the U.K. spent just 7.7 percent of its GDP on health care — less than half of what the U.S. spent. From many, the sentiment seems to be that some type of health care legis-

lation was needed. The only question was whether this particular bill was the legislation needed. For reasons like this, health care reform has been on the minds of many people. Everyone seems to have a different opinion on the matter, and yet very few seem to have a solid idea of what is actually contained in the bill. Here are ten of the most commonly held beliefs about the new bill:

Small business owners will have to provide insurance for their employees: False

Someone who does not want health insurance must buy it anyway or pay a fine: True

Businesses with fewer than 50 fulltime employees are exempt from the mandate that requires larger ones to provide insurance by 2014.

With some exemptions for low-income people, in 2014 everyone must buy health insurance or pay an annual fine of $695.

Everyone’s taxes will be raised: False Only families making more than $250,000 per year and individuals making more than $200,000 a year will see an increase in taxes. Unearned income, or investment income, will be taxed at 3.8 percent in 2012. Indoor tanning beds will be subject to a 10 percent excise tax.

15th place. He was closely followed by freshman Mitchell Sutton, who placed 21st with a one-over (217). “Sutton played a great round today when we needed him,” Detweiler said. “And Hogue has been playing well the past couple tournaments. He finished second at our home tournament and he has played solid ball.” Sutton finished his first ever conference tournament strong, leading the Pack on Sunday with a four-under (68) on the strength of six final-round birdies. “Mitch is a good player and he is definitely a great addition to the team,” Detweiler said. “And he will be great in the future, especially if he matures. His performance Sunday is going to help out his confidence as well as our coach’s in him, especially that he can perform like that when we need him. It is definitely good to know that I have a teammate that is a freshman that is capable of doing that.” Rounding out the Wolfpack’s weekend were senior Brad Revell and sophomore Mark McMillen. Revell finished in 43rd place with a nine-over (225) and McMillen shot a 12-over.

“We just have to find a way to slam the door and we can’t seem to do that right now.”

Ninth inning woes continue to plague team Taylor Barbour Deputy Sports Editor

In one of the biggest series of the year, the N.C. State Wolfpack’s defense sputtered as the team was swept this past weekend by the Boston College Golden Eagles. The team had 11 total errors in the three games. It missed out on a prime opportunity to distance itself from Boston College and Virginia Tech as all three teams came into the weekend tied in sixth place. “All weekend I think we felt like we were the better team, we just weren’t showing it,” sophomore third baseman Andrew Ciencin said. “Today we finally got the bats going. We just never got a break all weekend. But that’s baseball for you.” In the first game of the series, Pack senior starting pitcher Jake Buchanan picked up the loss as he allowed eight runs in five and one-third innings. However four of those runs we unearned. After that the Pack could not muster enough offense to get back in the game and lost 9-5. A late inning comeback by Boston College in Saturday’s game cost the Pack a win and the series when the Eagles retook the lead in the ninth inning off of relief pitcher Rob Chamra, winning 10-8. Sunday’s game was a back and forth affair between the two teams with a combined five lead changes, 26 hits and 21 runs. However, the Pack fell short as Boston College came back once again in the top of the ninth to beat State 11-10. Junior Grant Sasser (2-3) picked up the loss, while Kevin

Moran picked up his seventh win of the season. With the loss, the Pack drops to 9-12 in ACC play and 23-17 overall. “I do not know if we had a break this weekend,” coach Elliott Avent said. “I don’t know if anything went out way. It seems like every call, every bounce, every break didn’t go our way at all this weekend.” The Eagles jumped on the board early as Boston College put up three quick runs on State’s senior starting pitcher Alex Sogard. The Pack cut into the deficit in the bottom of the third inning when junior center fielder Russell Wilson

blasted a two run home run over the left field wall, taking the score to 3-2. But the Eagles tacked on another three runs in the top of the fourth inning, extending its lead to 6-2. In the next inning, Sogard was chased out of the game after hitting the leadoff batter, finishing with four innings pitched while giving up five earned runs on nine hits. “Those first few innings, all weekend they just killed us,” Ciencin said. “We just made mental mistakes out in the field that just did us in. It puts our pitcher in a hole and he has to work a lot harder than

Three Wolf pack golfers finished in the top-25 of the 55-player field, and State finished seventh as a team at the 2010 ACC Men’s Golf Championship in New London. “We are not pleased with our finish,” junior Brandon Detweiler said. “We are a very good team and seventh place is not acceptable.
