UNT offers faculty buyout BY M ATTHEW CARDENAS Staff Writer

W i t h p e n d i n g bu d g e t cuts tightening UNT’s belt, administrators are offering faculty the opportunity to accept a pay out and leave. In an email to all faculty members Monday, Provost Warren Burggren detailed a limited separation program offered by the Division of Academ ic A f fa i rs, wh ich would give one year’s annual base pay to faculty members w ho s e a ppl ic at ion s a r e accepted. The program would free up

money for the university, not clear out faculty, said UNT spokesman Buddy Price. “It’s to reallocate funds,” Price said. President V. Lane Rawlins said the program would help redirect resources to make UNT a better research institution. About 350 of the more than 1,500 faculty members qualify for the program, which limits eligibility to those who have completed at least 15 years of continuous service at UNT.

Wayne Zimmermann has worked at UNT for two years and doesn’t qualify for the program, but considers it a good deal. “If t hey pa id me for a year’s salaray, I’d be gone,” he said.

He said he was impressed with Richmond’s people skills. “Joe knows how to talk to people,” Ferguson said. “When you talk to Joe you get that he really understands the questions you’re asking him and he really gets to the heart of the answer.”

TWU student’s threat expedites UNT program BY BEN BABY



Senior Staff Writer The disgruntled veteran who caused a lockdown at Texas Woman’s University last week is now causing changes to prevent a similar situation from occurring at UNT. Christopher Gillette was charged with making a terroristic threat in a TWU classroom, March 1, after the 30-year-old U.S. Army veteran became upset during class, according to reports. He was released from the Denton County Jail on $25,000 bail. UNT police issued Gillette a criminal trespass warning March 2 after police learned he had participated in events on the UNT campus last fall, authorities said. “It gives us a tool to where, if we have someone on campus that we already determined may pose a threat, we can take immediate action,” said UNT Deputy Police Chief Ed Reynolds of the trespass warning, which is indefinite.

Gillette’s involvement at UNT If Gillette comes to any property owned or controlled by UNT, he will be arrested on a criminal trespassing charge, wh ich is a m isdemea nor punishable with a $2,000 fine, Reynolds said. The charge also carries a possible jail sentence of no more than 180 days. Gillette, a history major at TWU, has been involved with the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws at UNT. NORML vice president and philosophy sophomore Nikki Kidd said Gillette came to about

half of the g roup’s m e e t ings last s e m e s t e r. K idd sa id Gillette attended a m a r c h CHRISTOPHER by t h e GILLETTE group last October and a subsequent SGA meeting the group went to. “He was really friendly to us,” Kidd said. “He was on our side.” Kidd said Gillette vocalized his opinions in meetings, and she could tell that he was really passionate about anything he talked about. Gillette also contacted Jacqi Serie, the director of operations for Denton Community TV, about conducting a public access show on the station. Serie said the 15-minute phone conversation took place about two and a half weeks ago. She said Gillette had mentioned somebody getting hurt, and the TWU student wanted to hold up government documents to the camera and ask for the resignation — if not execution — of government officials. “He basically stated that he was angry, and very, very mad at the current government,” Serie said.

Gillette had voiced concerns about the government medical treatment he had received for injuries sustained while serving in the Army, according to reports.

Festival celebrates storytelling Professor studies material By Brittni Barnett Intern

Whether it’s through ghost stories, sacred stories, tall tales or fairy tales, the 26th annual Texas Storytelling Festival is helping audiences re-discover the joy of storytelling. The festival sponsored by the Tejas Storytelling Association, will take place at 6:30 p.m. today through Sunday at the Denton Civic Center. The mechanics of storytelling help people with life skills such as interview techniques, said Elizabeth Ellis, the Tejas Storytelling Association president. “Everyone uses storytelling in their careers,” she said. “Teachers, lawyers, product promoters — they all use storytelling techniques. They just don’t think about it.” Individual tickets for a storyteller’s performance cost $10, day passes for Friday and Saturday are $40 each, and a pass to attend the entire festival is $130. “We are hoping to showcase nationally known storytellers and outstanding Texas tellers,” Ellis said. “Every kind of story you can think of will be offered.”

The festival’s storytellers include Lyn Ford, Jay Stailey, Jeannine Pasini Beekman, who will present a dark re-telling of “Snow White” and nationally renowned storyteller Donald Davis. “Donald Davis is very funny and warm,” said Mary Ann Blue, the Tejas Storytelling

“Stories are the glue that holds our culture together.”

—Mary Ann Blue, Association secretary

Association secretar y and the festival’s artistic director. “He has been to Denton many times and is a Denton favorite.” For those who just want to attend the master class, where Davis will give his take on storytelling, the price is $50. The ghost stories concert, which is the most popular among students, will begin at 7 p.m. tonight on the main stage, Ellis said. “If these stories can’t scare

you, then nothing can,” she said. Tasha Ooley, an interior design senior, said she wouldn’t mind attending the ghost stories concert. “I would totally go to that,” she said. “I like ghost stories, but only if they’re really scary.” The festival will present a variety of workshops on the different aspects of storytelling. “People who attend can learn how storytelling is changing and adapting through Twitter and Facebook,” Blue said. “There is a little something for everyone.” For the first time, the festival will offer fringe performances that may appeal to an older audience, Ellis said. “These are the stories that don’t quite fit in to the typical mold,” Ellis said. “They are a little more graphic, a little more edgy.” The performances will take place at other locations besides the main stage, which haven’t been released yet, she said. “Stories are the glue that holds our culture together,” Blue said. “They tell us who we are.” For more information visit http://www.tejasstorytelling. com/festival/index.html.

NTTV develops program for students’ short films By holly h arvey Intern

The recent short film “God of Love,” which starred UNT alumna Marian Brock, won the Academy Award for Best Live Action Short, and students hope to follow its lead. An upcoming program called “UNT Shortys” will present students’ short films and air on North Texas Television. The program, starting next fall, has three female hosts. Each show will have three to five episodes, said Chris Hood, a radio television and film junior who will produce the program. “The goal of the show is to showcase the work that the students are doing,” he said. Channeling inspiration Hood said he was required to make short films as part of his major, and he wanted to start a show on North Texas Television where other students could show their films. “UNT Shortys” has received about eight submissions so far, and is produced by a staff of volunteers, he said. The student producer will create a pilot episode before the show goes to the main program,

said Noah Sargent, an entertainment producer for NTTV. “As film students, you all have to do the same thing, so it seemed like it a good idea to have a show around the student’s work,” Hood said. Featured films Students in the film program are required to take classes in narrative filmmaking and produce short films, said Eugene Martin of the radio, television and film faculty. “There’s really a culture of making short films here,” he said. There are four film classes that require short films. Students produce about two short films a semester, Martin said. “I like the hands-on approach to the RTVF program. You actually get to do a lot of things yourself,” said Jocelyn Gerlach, a RTFV sophomore. A short film called, “The American Dream,” won two prizes at film festivals. The RTVF faculty plans to do more short film screenings in the area with other universities, Martin said. Hood said he wants “UNT Shortys” to continue after he

using laser technology By K aylah Baca Intern

It only takes fractions of a second for a laser beam no bigger than the tip of a ball-point pen to have a lasting effect on the man-made material known as metallic glass. Na rend ra Da hot re, t he chairman of the department of materials science and engineering, is studying metallic glass as part of a three-year research grant, funded by the National Science Foundation in collaboration with Oklahoma State University. “The material is very complex, and it took decades for people to really begin to understand its properties,” Dahotre said. He said he became interested in metallic glass in the ‘80s after he heard of its unusual qualities. He said metallic glass is a solid material, but its atoms are arranged more like a liquid’s. As a result, the synthetic material is strong yet brittle, which can be challenging when trying to manipulate it in a lab, he said. When he came to UNT, he resumed his research to find uses for the material in everyday life. Dahotre said because metallic glass is a good conductor of electricity, it will likely be used in electrical transformers. These units lower the voltage coming out of power grids so that electricity can easily stream into houses or businesses. In the future, metallic glass could be used in the mini-com-

Narendra Dahotre, the chairman of the department of materials science and engineering, demonstrates how the metallic glass is processed using a laser in his lab at Discovery Park. ponents of devices such as cell phones, because the material doesn’t generate a lot of heat, he said. Dahotre discovered a laser beam can be used on the corners of the metallic glass to melt sheets of the material together to form thicker plates. The heat of the laser keeps the material from shattering, he said. Sameer Paital, a post-doctoral fellow, works with Dahotre on the project. The laser beam acts like the sun under a magnifying glass. In less than a second, a massive amount of energy is concentrated into one specific area, he said. “We conduct ex tensive research before experimenting,

so that we can chew the results completely and analyze what is happening to the material,” Paital said. Shravana Kumar Katakam, a materials science and engineering graduate student, said he is responsible for adjusting the settings on the laser to get the desired results during experiments. Dahotre said the material was created by accident at the California Institute of Technology when a batch of molten metal fell onto a cold floor and instantly changed into metallic glass. He said right now, metallic glass can only be manufactured in thin, rigid sheets that resemble aluminum foil.

Students counter Islamophobia

SGA rehashes Homecoming issue Editorial October is months away, but Homecoming is at the forefront of some UNT students’ minds again. The issue of same-sex couples being able to run together came up at Wednesday’s Student Government Association meeting. The subject reopened because the association formed a committee last year to look into how to solve the problem. Four potential solutions came from the finished research. In its original form, the bill would have included a referendum for students to vote on options determining how the Homecoming court would be selected in the fall. The Editorial Board supports the first option, which would allow students to run as individuals instead of couples. Option four would have allowed students to vote to keep the process the same, which some of the students at the meeting opposed because they felt it would harm the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender population. The SGA eliminated that option. As the amendment stands, student senators are expected to vote on the first option March 23. History of Homecoming hysteria In September 2009, an SGA senator introduced a bill that would allow a same-sex ticket. The proposal resulted in months of controversy, including a vote by the SGA to retain the original structure, a student Supreme Court hearing about how the issue should be handled, and a student referendum where the students voted “no” to allow the change. People on both sides — opponents and proponents for the idea — disagreed intensely, arguing for tradition and equality, respectively. Because of the divisive nature of the issue, neither of the groups wanted to compromise, but a compromise needs to exist to bring this issue to a rest. An acceptable option None of the solutions would make everyone happy. If the change does not occur, the students at the meeting who support it said they would continue to push and fight for a gender-neutral situation. If the change does happen, the people who support a more conservative view of Homecoming will disagree and refer back to the referendum vote as validation for their point. Both sides need to compromise. The option the SGA will consider provides that compromise. The LGBT community objects to having opposite-sex couples represent the school, and the change would eliminate that aspect. Others oppose having same-sex couples as Homecoming king and queen because they want to avoid gender discrimination. Because the SGA eliminated the option to leave Homecoming the same, it should now give students the ability to vote on the three options that allow gender neutrality instead of choosing for the UNT community. Students should have a voice in what happens to Homecoming, but the rights of the minority groups need to be respected. If students feel strongly one way or another, they need to voice their opinions at the meeting at 5 p.m. in two weeks in Terrill Hall 120. The individual option would be the fairest way solution, to vote for one man and one woman and cut out the couple aspect of it. Make it a couple of people, not a couple.

On Ma rch 2, t he Jew ish Studies prog ra m hosted a film screening of “The Third Jihad” and a panel discussion c onc er n i ng Mu s l i m ex t rem i sm. A s I went to obser ve t he event, I had a skeptical perspective. When I left, I was simply appalled. As I watched the video, I found that not only were many things blatantly wrong, but also information seemed to be intentionally misleading, such as honor killings. Islam does not condone honor killings, yet they were conveyed in a way alluding to Islam’s acceptance within the religion. The film goes on about the threat of an Islamic take over, both politically and violently, within Europe and the United States. It uses a flashing technique of random violent clips to scare the audience without ever giving any context as to what is really going on. It is not surprising for a film of this nature to use scare

tactics and fear mongering to convince an audience to believe complete lies. The most surprising point of the evening was when, after the discussion, some people from the audience went to mingle and pose follow-up questions to the panel as well as the host of the screening, Richard Golden. Golden, a professor of history and the director of the Jewish Studies program at UNT, expressed shocking views. With the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in mind, he was asked what the purpose of showing the film was. He dubbed this question irrelevant. As the discussion changed topics from the film to Israel, his statements became abrasive. Golden began to say things like Israel has never done anything wrong to the Palestinians. He continued by claiming Christians committed all the violence against Palestinians, and there are no extremist Jews. At this point, questions came to mind. How are we, as a globa l

societ y, ever supposed to progress when we have people like Golden on a campus of academia? How are negotiations supposed to work if both sides cannot agree that t hey have made mista kes? Ca n t here be peace if one side points all the fingers? Golden can point a finger and blame everyone else for the mistakes that Israel has made, but is t hat getting anyone any where? The panelists were asked what the overall message of t he night shou ld be, what should be done about Islamist extremism and how this film could bring us all together. The message was clea r: Z ion ism ex ist s on U N T’s campus and should not be left unquestioned. We should all remember as Dr. Sadri (one of the panelists) stated to lighten up about the situation. This is a sma ll minorit y of Muslims who have such v iews. It must be remembered that all religions and

governmental systems have an extremist side. The event ex posed showing films like this only separate groups of people. Films like this only promote Isla mophobia . Fi l m s l i ke t h is a re a rem i nder t hat, a lt hough groups of people have conf licts, we must see past the fog of misinformation and move toward a future of coexistence.

Rhetoric about market needs to change The word “rhetoric” has developed a rat her negative connotation in our day. However, the problem is not rhetoric itself, but those who employ it. R h e t or i c , a s A r i s t ot l e understood it, is “the faculty of observing in any given case the available means of persuasion.” It is the art of making one’s position palatable and acceptable to another. It is w riting and spea k ing w ith intent. Modern sensibilities, however, tend to associate rhetoric with cheap emotionalism or a lack of substance. A r istotel ia n rhetor ic involves three main elements: logical reasoning and factual d a t a ( lo go s ) , a n u nde rstanding of human ethics and the establishment of credibility (ethos), and the ability to excite the emotions of the audience (pathos). Words and ideas, along with the way they are articulated, ultimately have the ability to transform societies. Rhetoric inspires

pa radig m shif ts, which in turn have t he potentia l to construct the worldview of millions of individuals. R hetor ic caused t he Indust r ia l Revolut ion a nd built the modern economic world. It wasn’t slavery, exploitation or imperialism. Those Marxist talking points may accou nt for t he wea lt h a c c u mu l a t e d b y p a r t i c u la r i nd iv idua ls, but t hey do not account for the tenfold increase in average global per capita income. On the other hand, it wasn’t investment, t rade or incent ives eit her. Such systems had been in use for thousands of years and never led to the innovative explosion we’ve experienced in t he past couple centuries. W h at c h a nge d, e c ono mist and historian Deirdre N. McCloskey argues, was the rhetoric surrounding markets and innovation. It was the rhetor ic d i rected at i n no-

v ator s. S oc iet y be g a n to embrace the bourgeoisie (i.e. the professional or educated class), recognizing them as dignified and free. It became praiseworthy to be a businessman. The change in opinion led to change in the social and politica l spectrums. W hen innovation is seen as good, i n novat ion — a nd consequently human life — f lourishes. Mc C los ke y ’s i n sig ht i s important for those who are considered to be on the Right of the political divide because of their support of free enterprise. If supporters of t he market system wish to offer it up as meaningful contribution to the economic debate, the rhetoric must change. Selfishness is not virtuous no matter what Randian spin you give it. You can’t save the phrase “greed is good” (sorry, Wa lter W i l l ia m s). M i lton Friedman’s “freedom” rhetoric comes closer, but even he

tends to come off cold from time to time. Although the facts support their arguments, the harshness of t heir presentat ion c au s e s l i stener s to t u r n away. Ma rket suppor ters must couple the extensive data in favor of market systems with the cooperative, egalitarian rhetoric of the Left. “Freemarkets” must be understood as “collective intelligence.” “Capitalism” must be understood as “innovation.” And so forth. Not only are these concepts more rhetorically sound, they ref lect the data more accurately as well. Market exchange is not a zero-sum game. Never has been. But it will take a rhetorical revolution on the Right to help the public realize this. Walker Wright is an organi z at i on al b eh avi or an d human resource management senior. He can be reached at

How do you feel about UNT offering buyouts to professors who have worked here for at least 15 years?


“I don’t think that’s a good idea. If they believe they should still have a job, then they shouldn’t be given an offer to leave. Although, for professors who are slacking, then they should take the buyout.”

Alicia Wamsley Biology freshman


“It’s a copout on UNT’s part to force teachers to quit in order to meet the quota for cuts. But at the end of the day, it’s the students’ education that will suffer.”

UNT swept in double header Winning streak halted by Missouri State BY BOBBY LEWIS

Healthy team wins at home Tennis defeats Musketeers with ease BY BRETT MEDEIROS

Intern Play i ng it s f i rst match aga i nst t he Un iversit y of X av ier, t he U N T t en n i s team took advantage of its healthy roster and defeated the Musketeers 7-0. Each of the six Mean Green (3-8) starters was healthy for the first time this season, and played in the doubles and singles rounds. “Seeing everyone progressively getting better is just exciting,” said junior A my Joubert. “This win today will give us a lot of confidence heading into FIU.” Senior Madura Ranganathan pl a y e d her f i r s t si ng le s

match since Ja n. 28 a f ter being out because of illness. She defeated X av ier (4-8) freshman Allyson Westling 6-1, 6-2. “I forgot how it felt to be on the court and actually win a match,” Ranganathan said. “I feel enthusiastic about the next couple of weeks leading up to conference.” The match was the f irst time since last year’s match against South Alabama that UNT held an opponent to zero points. “We needed to come out here and just really have a good day,” said head coach Sujay L a ma. “We wa nted to have that feeling we had before everything went downhill five weeks ago. They took a good first step.” A lt houg h t he season is halfway through, Lama and the girls have a new mentality

as if the season had just begun for them, Lama said. “In our books, we are 1-0,” Lama said. “We are looking for our second victory next week.” The w ind played a role t h roug hout t he match, preventing the players from serving and blowing the ball in different directions. “Was it a pretty match? No. You’re not going to be playing pretty matches in this weather condition,” Lama said. “I’m really proud of the kids that hanged in there.” UNT’s next match will take place at home against Florida International March 15 in a rematch of last year’s Sun Belt Championship that the Mean Green won 4-3. “It’s all about preparation for our biggest rival … FIU,” Lama said. “Our focus has to be on all the little details.”

In its last games before conference play starts, the UNT sof tba ll team was swept by Missouri State in an afternoon doubleheader Wednesday. The first game of the doubleheader was the Play for Kay Charity Game. T-shirt sales and cash donations from the game will be given to the Dallas-Fort Worth’s Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Game One The Mean Green (11-8) got a strong performance out of starting sophomore pitcher Brittany Simmons in the opener, but the offense could not figure out Missouri State junior Natalie Rose, resulting in a 1-0 MSU (5-6) win. Both pitchers pitched the entire seven innings, but Simmons walked three batters, two more than Rose. The lone run of the game was unearned and came in the top of the fifth when sophomore shortstop Lesley Hirsch dropped an infield pop fly to put MSU sophomore shortstop Kristin Cutter on first base. On the next pitch, MSU senior second baseman Christa Gammon hit an RBI double to left field.

Freshman qualifies for Zone meet BY TAYLOR JACKSON Staff Writer

After setting a school record in the 1-meter diving competition during the Sun Belt Conference Tournament, freshman diver Catherine Johnson will compete in the NCAA Zone D meet this weekend in Austin. There are five regional Zone

meets in the country, and Johnson will face schools from the Midwest region. The England native said she hopes to make an impression at the meet. “I’m excited because it’s a big competition for me and I’m completely new,” Johnson said.

Zone Diving meets contain divers who earned 265 points during competition and Johnson earned 279.9 in her last meet. Each zone has a different number of competitors. UNT’s zone will have 11 women and seven men competing. Head coach Jim Pyrch said Johnson’s success is a sign of the progression the team has made. “You build the foundation and it takes a little while to set up,” Pyrch said. “We have a lot more leadership this year.” The meet starts today and lasts through Sunday.
