A plate presented w it h chicken cordon bleu, a side of steaming asparagus and golden potatoes gratin is presented on a black linen table in front of UNT President V. Lane Rawlins and his wife, Mary Jo, at The Club at Gateway Center. “I trust he had a great meal,” said Charlie Foster, general manger of The Club. Created in 1987, The Club at Gateway Center, a nonprofit organization, is a part of the ho s pit a l it y m a n a gement program. The restaurant gives students a chance to learn food production, management and restaurant training. “You get exposure, leadership, self-confidence, analytical skills, problem-solving skills and a lot of involvement,” Foster said. The Club is open from 11 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. Monday through Friday from Oct. 4 to Dec. 3. Reservations are recommended and meals are $7.

Trading Places Two required courses feature the fine dining laboratory: SMHS 3250 and SMHS 4250. Ashley Feidner, a hospitality management senior, said she believes The Club is beneficial to gain experience. “In the real world, I’m only a server and don’t have a chance to work all the different positions like I do here,” she said. Money made at The Club goes toward the finances of the restaurant. If students are given tips, the money is put into a pool for scholarships given out by the program, Foster said. Twenty students work daily and are divided into three groups. Students work in the kitchen, on the floor and at the front desk, Foster said. “It’s a great day when I can sit back and the bulk of what I spend my time doing is observing their behavior and coaching,” he said. The students detail recipes, figure costs and work together

on three semester projects, he said. Foster believes The Club will continue to be successful because the program offers “genuine hospitality, great service and serves a diverse audience.” North Texas Classic The Club “goes green” in its prepa rat ion pract ices. Providing eco-friendly packaging and serving water upon request are a few ways the restaurant helps the environment, Foster said. The Club takes place in a controlled environment. If mistakes are made, students have the opportunity to overcome problems, Foster said. “We want them to be able to adapt and think on their feet,” he said. Mea ls consist of t h ree courses. First is an appetizer, then a protein, starch and vegetable, and last is dessert, Foster said. Fourteen different themes

Shared paths cause concern Comedy comes to campus BY CLAIRE LEO

SHANNON MOFFATT

UNT students are debating the safety of cyclists and pedestrians sharing the sidewalks on campus after a woman was struck and killed by a cyclist in White Rock Lake in Dallas. Lau ren Hudd leston, 28, was jogging along Katy Trail in White Rock Lake when she was hit by a bicycle. She died three days later on Oct. 3 from the head injuries sustained in the accident. The cyclist is not currently facing charges, according to a Dallas Morning News article. Fra ncesca Ma r t inez, a n English junior, was in the middle of the crosswalk in front of Crumley Hall on her bike when a cyclist hit her, she said. “The cars were stopped at the crosswalk,” she said. “I wasn’t the only one crossing, but the bicycle went around all of the cars and hit me.” Martinez said the cyclist hit her shoulder and front wheel before flipping over. Martinez wasn’t injured but was still mad at the cyclist, she said. Wit h more t ha n 36,000 students enrolled in classes,

Comedy Central comedian Paul Varghese performed alongside amateur UNT comedians in the Lyceum on Tuesday night for the University Program Council’s LMAO Comedy Night. Varghese was recently on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” and performed stand-up on Comedy Central’s “Live At Gotham.” “I think [the LMAO Comedy Night is] a good stress reliever,” said Montreal Williams, an elementary education senior and vice president of arts for the UPC. “I heard laughter adds eight days to your life.” Williams organized the event, which was presented by the UPC and Thought for Food, UNT’s improv comedy club. The free show also included free popcorn at the door. Brad Pike, a radio, television and film senior, opened the act, performing in a wizard costume. Varghese, a UNT alumnus, was the headliner and joked about the relationships between people of different races. “I like not having a boss,”

Students walk through plenty of traffic when trying to get from one place on campus to another. Many can be seen distracted by their phones or MP3 players. the Denton campus of UNT is bound to get a little crowded. “I don’t ride [my longboard] to classes because of the congestion,” said Josh Eccleston, a logistics junior. “Plus, I know it freaks people out.” He and his friends ride their longboards on campus every day, Eccleston said, but they’re careful about picking the right time of day and they avoid campus when classes are starting or ending. There are more than 3,000 cyclists on campus, according

to bi kedenton.wordpress. com. The UNT Transportation department offers a list of biking rules and regulations on its website, but most of the rules relate to bike registration and safety involving vehicles. Bikers can find a map of reported bike accidents around campus on bikedenton.wordpress.com, but the majority of bike accidents go unreported.

Dressed as a warlock, Brad Pike recited a love poem to an audience member titled “I Right Behind You.” Pike performed as an opening act for Paul Varghese at the UPC LMAO Comedy Night Tuesday in the Lyceum. Varghese said. “The only bad thing about performing is when you have a bad performance, everyone can see.” Varghese won Dallas Observer’s “Best Stand-up Comic in Dallas” in 2007, Williams said. He has also performed several shows at the Addison Improv Comedy Club, Williams said. “I went through a number of comedians, but he just happened to be the one I connected with the most,” Williams said. “It’s awesome because he’s mainstream and local.”

The show started at 7:20 p.m. and drew an audience of about 100 people. Williams said he expected 300 people. Because many comedy clubs serve alcohol, most require patrons to be 18 years old or 21 and up. Williams said this event is great for UNT students considering many, especially freshmen, aren’t able to attend shows at an improv club.

OrgSync offers helpful tools for students, groups BY M ACKENZIE MICHEL Staff Writer

Although some may say Facebook is the quickest way to get in touch with campus organizations and their members, there is a website designed specifically for student organizations. OrgSync, a website designed to help student organizations better connect with their members and other organizations, is used by many UNT organizations. Now, the Student Government Association encourages all groups to use it as a primary method of communication. “It’s kind of like the Facebook for student organizations,” said Erin Lipinsky, a journalism junior and director of public relations for SGA. “Facebook is a good communicator, but OrgSync’s focus is directed specifically toward student organizations.” The site offers “more than 50 tools that together revolutionize the way campus administrators, student organizations, and students communicate and interact,” according to OrgSync’s website. With OrgSync, students and

organizations can create and update profiles, manage events, create a calendar, upload files, keep track of dues and send messages to members. Ashlee Andersen, a business economics senior and president of the Student Veterans Association, believes that OrgSync keeps that group’s members better informed. “E-mail is just too messy,” Andersen said. “E-mails don’t always go through and other officers need to send stuff out, too. Using OrgSync is simple. You select all members and it sends everything out.” The SGA believes OrgSync is one of the quickest ways to keep the university and the students informed. “An organization can reap a lot of benefits by gaining mass communication with OrgSync,” Lipinsky said. “It’s just a lot faster and clearer.” But not everyone feels that OrgSync is the most useful tool. Kyle Wendel, a hospitality management junior and secretary of the Club Managers Association of America and member of the

Knights of Columbus, said he found the overall service on OrgSync to be ineffective when he used it as a member of the Knights of Columbus. “Everybody has Facebook, so it’s easier to just go ahead and set up a group on there,” Wendel said. “It could be more effective, but at this point in time not enough people use OrgSync and not enough people know about it.” OrgSync offers special tools to universities and their students. With OrgSync, a school can custom-brand its community, adding its own logo, colors, pictures and layout, according to the OrgSync website. The site also offers students the ability to create and manage co-curricular transcripts, known at UNT as Eagle Transcripts, said Lance Simon, the student service representative at the Center for Leadership and Service. Eagle Transcripts, similar to academic transcripts, display all of a student’s extra-curricular activities. Simon said an Eagle Transcript is a way for students to self-report on all the activities they do at

Business and dance freshman Mallory Miner uses OrgSync to keep members of her organization, Terry Scholars of North Texas, updated on meeting agendas. “We post the minutes from each meeting on OrgSync so that everybody can be updated on the happenings of each meeting even if they were unable to attend,” Miner said. UNT that may not fit on their résumé. “There are qualifying experiences you participated in that you may wish to list on your Eagle Transcript as a touch point during an interview,” Simon said. “The

Eagle Transcript documents come in handy to give potential employers a more holistic image of that student.” Simon hopes to spread awareness about the co-curricular transcript options and about OrgSync

in general so more students can take advantage of it. To learn more about how to create an Eagle Transcript, visit volunteer.unt.edu. To learn more about OrgSync, visit www. orgsync.com.

“We’re also cooperating with the Office of Student Rights and Legal Services,” Schulte said. “We’ll do everything allowable within the parameter of the law.” Amber Chiles, a merchandising junior, said she wanted to go to the event to see the speech, but not to protest. “I think it’s a good opportunity,” she said. Students shouldn’t be judgmental of Bush, Chiles said.

“I don’t like to put blame on anybody,” she said. “Every president has done political things, good and bad, for the country.” Some students may object to the speech even if UNT were to not pay Bush, however, Schulte said. “Personally, I would protest him anyway because of his murderous policies,” Schulte said. If students’ protests disrupt the speech, they may face repercussions, With said. “If someone disrupts the event, they will be escorted

The UNT Code of Student Conduct free speech policy prohibits the disruption of university functions, according to the policy’s text. “All referrals of allegations [of violations of] the Student Code of Conduct go to the Center for Student Rights and Responsibilities,” With said.

An investigation revealed last week that some of the top Facebook games and applications take user information and share it with thirdparty companies, regardless of how strict the user sets his or her privacy settings. Internet compa nies use data mining, which is the analysis of data for useful i n for mat ion, to t hei r benefit, including those on Facebook. “As there is a huge amount of data stored in the corporate world, there is a need to see if you can make use of them so that you can maybe retain your customers,” said Nick Evangelopoulos of the information technology and decision sciences faculty. A lthough these applicat ions v iolated Facebook’s privacy policy, it is difficult to pinpoint the legal violation. Scott Belshaw of the criminal justice faculty refers to t he Internet as t he “Wild West,” explaining that prosecuting someone for online activity can be difficult in

the U.S. “We have multiple jurisdictions,” Belshaw said. “What if the person is engaging in the criminal behavior from a foreign country? They’re not physically in the United St a t e s . T he y ’r e ov e r i n another country. Should they be held accountable to the same laws here in the United States? ... The people are very difficult to catch.” Students on campus have had to deal with applications on Facebook acquiring their information and using it to try to get other users’ information. “I have all of my privacy settings set to only my friends even t houg h t hat doesn’t really stop anything,” said Brittney Vodde, a psychology f resh ma n. “I’ve had [my Facebook] hacked, and they were sending dirty messages to people.” She had to create a new profile to fix the problem. In some cases, sha r ing of user information is set i n website ter ms. In t he Facebook pr ivac y pol ic y, t here is a list of information that is shared and not

sha red, accord i ng to t he u s e r ’s pr i v a c y s e t t i n g s . Evangelopoulos called it fine print with multiple pages of terms. “I f you c a ref u l ly read t he terms t hey say t hings like, ‘We may provide third pa r t ies w it h i n for mat ion related to you or your account including but not limited to’ and then they list a few examples,” Evangelopoulos said. “You have ver y little negotiating power.” Ev a ngelopou los sa id a new or ga n i z at ion wou ld have to be created to regulate Internet privacy. “It would be nice if there w a s a n ic on to rem i nd you that right now they’re ha r vest ing you r persona l i n for mat ion versus r ig ht now they are not collecting a n y t h i n g a b o u t y o u ,” Evangelopoulos said.

Student makes friends through longboarding By A shley-CrystAl Firstley Intern

Ripping down the hill of Hickory Street at 15 mph on his longboard, biochemistry junior Blake Wheeler decides where to explore next. Wheeler is new to UNT and created a longboard group as a way to meet people. “I definitely don’t know anybody else who longboards up here,” Wheeler said. “So I’m just trying to find some people who knows their way around here just so we can get together and ride the streets.” Wheeler was introduced to longboarding by his brother a year and a half ago and has enjoyed it ever since, he said. “Whenever I go down the big hills, the big run...it gets your

adrenaline going,” Wheeler said. “I definitely don’t mind going out or maybe driving to some place in Denton, going down some streets there I don’t really know about or just maybe explore around.” Many people don’t normally explore Denton because they don’t have anyone else to go with, Wheeler said. Wheeler posted signs for his longboard group a week ago, and so far one student has shown interest. Special education junior Photo by James Coreas/Intern PhotograPher Casey Johnson said he would consider joining W heeler’s Biochemistry junior Blake Wheeler speeds downhill on his longboard. Wheeler is new to UNT this semester and created a longboard group to meet new people group. Johnson has been long- and have fun. boarding for four years and uses it as a method of transportation you actually have other people just to get, for now, a couple of sometimes on campus. to go with,” Johnson said. “So people, get some numbers and “It’s a lot more fun whenever that’s why I’m actually looking maybe meet up some place.”

Johnson said he likes to longboard on Scripture Street and ride with a group of friends doing round tricks. “I do it because I love it,” Johnson said. “I find peace when I’m longboarding. Just chill. Hang out. Relax.” There are several differences between longboarding and skateboarding, Wheeler said. Skateboarding is streetoriented while longboarding exerts more speed going down hills, he said. While it is possible to do some skateboard tricks with the right longboard, Wheeler said, the majority of people don’t. He tested the waters by attempting to do longboard flips, Wheeler said, and when longboards go down hills, it creates an intense amount of speed.

“I do both because I love bot h,” W heeler said. “I’m looking for people who like doing both of those as well or just one or the other. It’s cool with me.” Radio, television and film junior Dusty Lambert has been familiar with skateboarding for eight years, and has tried his skills at longboarding a few times. Compared to longboarding, Lambert said, skateboarding is more technical. “It’s a whole different world from skateboarding,” Lambert said. “It’s more laid back, like casual...just wanting to cruise the streets.” Anyone, experienced or not, is welcome to join at no cost.

are devoted to service. “We’re looking for people who want to make a difference,” she said. “We want people who are committed to volunteering.” Some students still plan to use the break as a sort of last hurrah of relaxation before the semester really gets underway. Ronnie Langford, a general business senior, said he finds the program interesting, but thinks he would rather just take it easy during his last semester. “I feel guilty now,” he said. “I would have done it, but next semester is my last semester and I have a trip planned already.” Langford said he plans to use his vacation for a road trip along the West Coast. He appreciates the virtues of charity, but understands that

many students would rather just rest, he said. “Honestly, I like to be the good guy and do charitable things, but that week off I’d like to chill out and rest,” he said. The charities involved in this year’s program cover a range of topics, from the environment and children to animals, hunger and disaster response. Most of the trips cost $225, while others cost $25, Simon said, depending on the location and the departments sponsoring them. For people like Morales and Simon, the people they meet and the experiences they get from the program are enough to make them sacrifice the time and money. “It’s an amazing opportunity to

learn about yourself, learn about others and learn about organizations out there,” Morales said. For more information on Alternative Spring Break, visit http://volunteer.unt.edu/service/ alternative.html or call the Center for Leadership and Service at 940-565-3021.

Students apply for Alternative Spring Break By tim monzingo Senior Staff Writer

As leaves and temperatures drop with fall’s coming, some students are already planning their spring break adventures. While some may head to the gulf and sandy beaches, some 70 applicants hope to be chosen to spend their break volunteering for charities like the Memphis Food Bank and Beacon of Hope, a disaster relief organization in New Orleans. “It’s a neat way to travel, make some new friends and experience something new while making a difference,” said Amy Simon, the director for the Center of Leadership and Service. Simon is responsible for organizing Alternative Spring Break, a program where students use

their six-day vacation to volunteer with various organizations around the country. The program began last year, she said, and offers six trips around the country to work with charities like the Ronald McDonald House. This spring break, though, the roster has expanded to 11 organizations to accommodate a growing number of volunteers. “We actually had to turn people away, so we wanted to offer more so there were more chances to volunteer,” she said. Though the application deadline is 5 p.m. today, Simon said that shouldn’t deter people from applying anyway. Rebecca Morales, an international studies sophomore, participated in the program last year

and helps Simon organize the 2011 event. “It was an eye-opening experience to be able to work with cancer kids and be able to know their background and interact with them and build friendships with them,” Morales said. She spent her vacation in Memphis, TN, at the Ronald McDonald House and said the experience made her aware of the challenges others face. “I’ve learned that other kids have it harder than I do and go through different life-changing experiences and they’re the kids with the most heart and the best spirits,” she said. Simon said the program’s growth depends on the quality of the applicants. She hopes to attract the kind of people who

Softball prepares for spring BY BOBBY LEWIS Staff Writer

After completing its fall season with a perfect 9-0 record, the UNT softball team has begun its nearly four-month break before the team plays its first game of the spring. The team was able to cruise to most of its victories over the past month, but the spotless win-loss record was not of great concern to the team because of the level of competition, head coach T.J. Hubbard said. Although the Mean Green only faced junior colleges this fall, Hubbard believes his team is already prepared and ready to play in the spring. “I think we could play tomorrow if we had to,� Hubbard said. That type of confidence is part of what led senior pitcher and infielder Mallory Cantler back to the pitcher’s circle this season after spending the majority of her first three years with the team at first base. “Technically, it was coach Hubbard’s decision,� Cantler said. “He kind of asked me about it this summer and I’m not going to say no to anything he asks. Whatever the team needs, I’ll do it. Now I’m glad that I am doing it.� In her first full fall season pitching for the Mean Green, Cantler alternated starts with the other three pitchers on the staff. “I can’t remember a fall season that I’ve ever been pleased with since I’ve been here,� Cantler said.

attitude on the mound was better than it was her freshman year when she was 10th in the Sun Belt Conference with an earned run average of 2.28. From now until the spring, the team will work to smooth out the rough edges that plagued it during the fall â&#x20AC;&#x201C; specifically defense, which Hubbard said should improve as the players get more time on the field. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll do a lot of hitting and a lot of individual stuff to try to work out some of the kinks that we need to with their swings,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pitchers will pitch two or three times a week to try to get the mechanical stuff fixed.â&#x20AC;? The teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spring season begins in February.

Over the past few seasons, it has been no secret that UNT has had trouble winning games. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not 100 percent sure, but I think that had something to do with the recent change in coaching. However, no matter how awful UNT has been, there was always one team that makes the Mean Green semi-faithful perk up: Western Kentucky. Yes, the Hilltoppers have historically been at the absolute bottom of the Football Bowl Subdivision food chain, with a few Division II schools yearning to take a bite at WKU. This year may be different when the Mean Green travels to Bowling Green, Ky., to take on its Sun Belt Conference rival. When the two teams have faced off over the past three seasons, it has usually been a battle of pride, with the winner claiming the right to say it is not one of the worst teams in college football. In past years, a UNT victory has been guaranteed, just like any team that

plays the Dallas Cowboys this season should be expecting an easy victory. A l l t he c i rc u m st a nc e s surrounding t his weekend are completely in Western K e n t u c k y â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s f a v o r . T h e Hi l ltoppers f ina l ly won a game last week, trouncing Louisiana-Lafayette (on the road, no less), 54-21. While WKU beat the Raginâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Cajuns by 34 points on the road, UNT was unable to beat ULL at home, falling by one point. The victory snapped an embarrassing 26-game losing streak by the Hilltoppers. On the UNT side of things, the Mean Green is coming off a bye week, which could not have come at a better time. Before the start of the season, the month of October was seen as a potential 4-0 waiting to happen, with three of its four games in the month taking place at Fouts Field. Probable wins turned into devastating losses, with the most recent defeat coming at the hands of Florida International on Homecoming night. During that time period, the Mean Green lost its thirdstring quarterback, sophomore Riley Dodge, and has

seen Todd Dodge head back down I-35 South for good. Another interesting aspect of Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game will be the battle between the two top r unning backs in t he conference. The discrepancy between first and second place is 32.3 yards per game. Whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on top? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not UNT junior running back Lance Dunbar, who is on the Doak Walker Watch List - it is WKU tailback Bobby Rainey, who has been torching opposing defenses all season. Interim head coach Mike Canales will make his headcoaching debut against the Hilltoppers, taking over for Todd Dodge. Ca na les has never held a head-coaching position, and it will be interesting to see what he can do in the final five games of the season. With all of that being said, this weekend will be an entertaining and exciting game, especially if Riley Dodge is able to perform at a high level on Saturday when he returns from an injury. While entertaining and exciting would be nice, at this point of the season, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only one thing that matters: a win.

Soccer team, Hedlund strike gold with Sting BY SEAN GORMAN Senior Staff Writer

While most contenders look around the nation to bring in talent, the UNT soccer team has found all the players it needs within 30 miles. The Mean Green has stayed local in its recruiting, adding nine players from the soccer club Dallas Sting over the past three seasons. “It’s one of the top clubs in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and we have a great relationship with their coaches,” head coach John Hedlund said. “People are starting to say this is ‘Sting North’ up here.” Created in 1973, Sting has competed internationally, won nine national championships and had four players invited to play on the 1991 Women’s National Team in the first-ever Women’s World Cup. UNT made its biggest commitment to Sting in 2009 when four of the Mean Green’s five freshmen came from the team.

Sophomores defender Danielle Guilliod, goalkeeper Haley Newsom and midfielders Carly McDowell and Ellen Scarfone made up the club-crammed class. “I think there’s a lot of chemistry on this team because there are so many of us that came from the same team,” McDowell said. “Sting taught us how to become better athletes and all of us learned a lot playing there.” The group’s stint on the club was a successful one, as Sting ‘91 was ranked No. 14 nationally during its senior year of high school. “All of the players we had that season had a unique set of skills that put our team in a great position to win,” Sting ’91 head coach Kenneth Medina said. “It was a special year for our club and I was confident that most of our players could compete at the collegiate level.” While Guilliod is out for the season with a leg injury and Newsom currently backs up senior

From top left: Ellen Scarfone, Danielle Guilliod, Kara Brooks, Haley Newsom and Carly McDowell from the ‘91 Dallas Sting club team. goalkeeper Mandy Hall, the other half of the group has played a huge role in leading UNT to a second-

place position in the Sun Belt. Scarfone leads the team with 22 points on seven goals and nine

assists while McDowell has scored two game-winning goals for the Mean Green. “I wouldn’t be the player I am today without my experience at Sting,” Scarfone said. “Playing for my high school was fun, but I feel like competing at the club level prepared me for Division I soccer.” Sting players who graduated high school in 2008 have also made their presence felt, as junior forward Kelsey Perlman and junior defenders Kara Brooks and Shannon Gorrie all start for UNT. The trio all came from different Sting affiliations, but their experience with Sting helped the three bond, Gorrie said. “We had faced each other before in club play and it was something we had in common when we joined the team,” Gorrie said. “Kara and me have played well together on defense because we’re so familiar with our playing styles.” This year’s freshman class has

made an immediate impact, as Sting veterans Kelsey Hodges and Loreli Ramsey receive substantial playing time in their first year. Hodges has burst onto the scene, scoring a team-high nine goals while starting at midfield. “The transition between club play and college has been difficult, abut I’ve gotten used to it as the season goes on,” Hodges said. “I’m certain that playing at that level has made me a better player.” While Hedlund plans to keep tapping into talent from the top clubs in Dallas, he won’t rule out recruiting in other regions of Texas. “We don’t feel like we have to go out of Texas to recruit players. That’s where we’ve had a lot of success in recent years,” Hedlund said. “We aren’t afraid to go outside of Dallas and try to get players from Houston or Austin either.” The former club players and the rest of the Mean Green finish their regular season at 7 p.m. Friday at Denver.

Dinuta wins consolation, tennis struggles after fast start BY SEAN GORMAN Senior Staff Writer

The UNT tennis team looked poised to advance far during early play but struggled later on at the Intercollegiate Tennis Association Texas Regional Tournament in Waco over the weekend. Two Mean Green doubles teams advanced to the round of 16, three single players advanced to the round of 32 and junior Paula Dinuta rebounded from an early loss by winning the consolation singles championship.

Dinuta cruised to the final round with a pair of 6-0 victories on Monday before defeating UT Arlington’s Daiana Negreanu in the final 7-6, 7-5 at the UTA tennis courts. “Paula played near-flawless tennis today in defeating an evenly matched opponent,” associate head coach Jeff Maren said. “I am proud of how well she competed throughout the tournament, both physically and mentally. This should give her a huge confidence boost going into the Baylor Invite in two weeks.”

Winning five of their six matches, the UNT doubles teams dominated the competition on Saturday. “Our lone loss was to the No. 5 Texas team, and the match was actually ours to win,” Maren said. “A few mistakes cost us the match, but overall it was a good performance today.” Showing why they were the fourth-ranked pairing, junior Irina Paraschiv and sophomore Barbora Vykydalova defeated UT El Paso’s Rebeca Calvillo and Marie LeBlond 8-5 in the

round of 32. Dinuta also had success in doubles play, as she and senior Amy Joubert defeated a pair from Sam Houston 8-1 and notched an 8-4 victory over a team from Rice. In UNT’s only defeat in the round of 32, junior Nadia L e e a nd sen ior Madu r a Ranganathan fell 8-6 to the No. 5-ranked team from UT, Krista Damico and Aeriel Ellis. UNT held its own in the singles bracket, sending three players to the round of 32. Vyk yda lova adva nced

through an upset, surprising No. 8 -r a n k e d K at a r i i n a Tuohimaa of TCU 6-4, 7-6. Ranganathan and No. 13 seed Paraschiv also made it to the final 32, while Lee fell to the No. 4 seed Sona Novakova of Baylor in the round of 64. “Overall, it was a good first day for us highlighted by Barbora’s win over the No. 8 seed,” head coach Sujay Lama said. “We’re pleased to advance three players to the round of 32.” A Sunday full of windy conditions and frustration followed

as Dinuta was the only member of the team to advance to the next day. “Today was a disappointing day overall,” Lama said. “We were flat and lacked focus and intensity. We didn’t deal well with the wind as well the style match ups.” Returning to Dallas for the consolation round, Dinuta helped UNT finish the tournament on a high note by winning a competitive final round. The Mean Green plays again Nov. 5 when it returns to Waco for the Baylor Invite.

Protest Bush speech Your dreams could make a difference correctly Editorial On Nov. 17, former President George W. Bush will speak at the UNT Coliseum. Bush’s visit will likely be one of the most controversial and widely protested speeches at the university so far. At least one organized protest has already been planned. Sponsored by a coalition of student groups, such as Campaign to the End the Death Penalty and the International Socialist Organization, the “DON’T PAY BUSH!” event has close to 300 R.S.V.P.s on Facebook. There have also been comments and various statements promising to “encourage rude and disruptive behavior.” The Editorial Board respects the institution of protesting. When done peacefully and appropriately, protests can be extremely effective. Displaying disrespect toward the office of the president — no matter opinions on decisions during time in office — is wrong and out of line. University of California at Berkeley’s protest over tuition cuts in March is a prime example of a demonstration gone wrong. The protests began as mild-mannered before boiling over into an angry near-riot resulting in more than 150 people being arrested and a freeway being closed down. Denton’s fairly docile March Against the Death Penalty or the parking day protest on Hickory Street were fairly effective demonstrations. For the march, large groups of people came together to voice their opinions against the death penalty and promote change gaining local spotlight. The parking day protest caught attention from passersby on Hickory and Fry street. Demonstrators sat in tolled parking spaces with desks, chairs, and plants. They stayed there all day to promoting environmentally friendly ways to travel other than cars. Both were effective, legal and made a point. Being loud and disrespectful isn’t going to prove anything to Bush other than make him believe the UNT community is rude and out of line. Students need to keep in mind the impact their potentially rowdy actions will have on the way UNT is perceived in the media. A peaceful, lawful protest will get far more positive coverage than a rowdy, disrespectful crowd that could disgrace the university. The coalition behind the protest is not condoning disrespectful behavior and promises to cooperate with the Office of Student Rights and Legal Services and obey the law. The students promising to be disrespectful are more than likely a fringe minority who will be dealt with appropriately if they choose to be disruptive. The Editorial Board hopes organized protest will be professional and lawful. UNT students attending the speech should show respect to the office of the president — protesting or not — or else protests will be no more effective than throwing shoes.

Campus Chat

Sometimes I wish I could fast-forward through my life because I don’t know where God is taking me or where I’m going. I think a lot of us are in the same position, wondering where we will be in the next few years or in the next few months. I know that fast-for warding would not be the answer, because then life would not be as much of a surprise or an adventure. When I write, it’s like my soul comes through the pen onto the paper — or in computer terms — from my fingers to the keyboard. It’s like my heart is speaking in a way that I could never express by word of mouth. I want to write to inspire people, and I want to do this through God, to touch the life of another. Oh, what life, what joy and what beauty music does to enrich the soul! I have always wanted to

learn to play piano and guitar and apply the poems I have written to music. Sometimes it takes just a single song to move someone or to change someone’s life. When I was learning to play piano, it was so rewarding. I almost felt like I do when I write, even though I’m not too experienced in playing piano. But when I did play, I was in a place that not even I could explain. My heart went through my fingers onto the keys, and I felt closer and closer to my dreams every time I practiced — my dream of singing. What a rush theater brings to the heart, mind, body and soul. It’s unexplainable. What a gift God has given to us through the life of the stage. I don’t know where this passion will take me, but hopefully, it will be to touch another life. We forget what it is to love. I so often forget to love in the

way that God intends. I have so much love that I wish to express, but because of vices that are difficult to combat, love can become a trying task. I dream of loving perfectly, as Christ loves us: to love my family, friends and enemies and to express the love I have burning inside of me for the man I will someday meet and the children we will love and care for. Although I know I will never be perfect, I won’t ever give up on this goal. If I can put a smile on your face, then that puts more joy in my heart than you could ever dream. When I send you a good morning text message, or a message of encouragement, I really mean what I say. It’s me wanting to spread the joy of God to your heart, because He loves us more than anyone could ever fathom and sometimes we forget that. But if we only knew

just how much He loves us, we would never want our hearts to be away from Him in any way. So my dear friend, take hold of your dreams, and embrace the love God has for you, and the gifts He has given you. They could change someone’s life.

A group of about 40 people marched across campus Monday afternoon. Armed with clever signs (like: “You can’t spell ‘blunt’ without U-N-T,”) and eye-catching costumes (like: the guy in the skin-tight green jumpsuit) they were as hard to ignore as they were clear in their message – Marijuana is good. Reaction to the story the Daily printed about the march seems to echo the same sentiment sweeping the nation, and while the “Marijuana is good” camp is still starkly in the minority, more Americans than ever before are crossing to the “Well, it’s probably not that bad” realm. Culturally, those Americans steadfastly opposed to its use know they have been living in occupied territory for years. The war began sometime in the 1960’s and while no one has admitted defeat, the battlefields of television, movies, magazines and music have grown greener every year. The final blow came in 2008 when a majority of American voters chose to elect Barack Obama — a former toker — to

the Presidency. Did the nation’s decision indicate an all-out advocacy for the consumption of the drug? No it did not – 59 percent oppose legalization. But it did symbolize the truth that a majority of Americans have accepted its prevalence enough to believe that illegal participate in recreational drug-use should not preclude you from service in the nation’s highest office. Marijuana reform activists — like UNT’s chapter of NORML — have seized on that shift in national morality to fuel a campaign designed to loosen marijuana restrictions. But is social ambivalence enough to merit legalization? Next week, California voters are stepping on that diving board, while the rest of the country looks on, anxious to see if they’ll go ahead and jump. In a move that could transform the Golden State into the, well, Stoner State Proposition 19 would legalize the use of recreational marijuana. The production and sale of Cannabis would become a taxed, regulated industry. Supporters say the law would

produce a much-needed jolt to California’s struggling economy and they’re right. Cannabis is currently the state’s most profitable cash crop, raking in an estimated $14 billion, annually. Legalization would spur the creation of jobs and stimulate a state that’s been financially flaccid for years. Yet, polls indicate that economic benefits won’t be enough to convince the electorate — a majority of whom consider themselves socially liberal — to vote yes. Voters in the most progressively pro-marijuana state are 51 percent opposed and only 39 percent for legalizing the drug. Critics of the proposal have largely avoided the “we don’t want potheads roaming the streets” argument, keeping instead, within a more reasoned argument — it’s still illegal under federal law, so the state’s law will be irrelevant. Despite having legalized medical marijuana in 1996, federal law enforcement officials continued to prosecute federal drug laws in the state until last year, when Obama suggested they

stop. So far, they have, but there’s no guarantee that will continue if California, once again, Rebels from Big-brother. We’ll see. But no matter what happens there, one thing is clear, marijuana is as illegal as ever if the long star state. Just ask Early, Texas resident Amanda Williams. After catching up with an old friend Williams received a text from him, “So do you smoke weed?” Unfortunately for him, Williams, a reserve city police officer invited fellow officers along when she agreed to meet him at a nearby park, where the criminal was arrested, Tuesday. A simple “no” would have been fine, Officer JerkFace. It’s the same box a majority of voters will check in California next week and the same answer I give when people ask me if I think campus demonstrations in Denton will lead to reforms in Washington.
