Grad students to lose access to certain loans NICOLE BALDERAS Senior Staff Writer
Graduate students will soon no longer be eligible for subsidized Stafford loans, as stated in the Budget Control Act of 2011. Stafford loans ease burdens for students by allowing them to make interest payments while they are still enrolled in school. July 1 marks the date graduate students will no longer be eligible. “In terms of directly addressing the change in the law, we don’t have anything particular to address this change,” said James Meernik, dean of UNT graduate schools. During the 2010-2011 academic year, 3,022 graduate students received subsidized loans to fund their academic career, totaling $20,695,628. While the loss of these avail-
able funds for students could lead to less student loan debt, the number of students able to afford college may also take a dip. “It’s too early to tell, but I think it will have an effect on student enrollment,” Meernik said. “It will be an effect that’s hard to measure because people who might be thinking about going to graduate school may not apply, so it’s hard to know about those.” The Budget Control Act of 2011 was enacted by Congress and signed by President Barack Obama in August. The bill passed with the intention of resolving the student loan debt crisis by slowing the growth of student debt.

About 150 people gathered at noon Wednesday around Shrader Pavilion for the sixth a n nua l F l ig ht Memor ia l Ceremony to honor the 283 UNT students, alumni, faculty and staff who died in the past year. The names of 16 students,
42 faculty and staff, and 225 alumni who died were read as the McConnell Tower bell atop the Hurley Administration Building rang out. “The inf luence of those who passed continues,” UNT President V. Lane Rawlins said. “We mourn what we could have gained from these lives. In our shared grief, we hope and are
comforted.” UNT Student Government Association President Blake Windham gave an opening statement. Windham said the bonds of the UNT community were strong and that the “fallen eagles” would never be forgotten. “Don’t think of it as a list of names being read,” Windham
said. “Think of it as people who will never be forgotten.” Alumna Cynthia Uduebor gave the Flight Memoria l address and spoke about the loss of her brother Otis Uduebor, also a UNT graduate, who died in 2007 after battling sickle-cell disease.

UNT counseling center helps SGA to co-sponsor contest veterans handle stress disorder BEN PEYTON Staff Writer

About 11-20 out of 100 vetera ns of t he Iraq a nd Afghanistan wars deal with posttraumatic stress disorder, an anxiety disorder that can develop after experiencing traumatic events, according to the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs. To help its veteran students readjust to civilian life, UNT offers counseling on sliding fees, with additional sessions if needed. “The percentage of soldiers I see with posttraumatic stress disorder ranges from 60 to 80 percent of my patients,” said Mar y Roberts, psychologist at the UNT Counseling and Testing Center. “We test them for it immediately with a check list that rates the symptoms. If they score a 50 or above they have moderate PTSD.” PTSD occurs after a victim ex per iences psycholog ica l trauma. The disorder typically causes the victim to doubt basic beliefs about themselves, creating a sense of panic, distrust and doubt that affects all aspects of their lives. Ada m Hagger t y, a peer mentor at the UNT Veterans Center, said he has not experienced PTSD since leaving the army in March 2009, but he knows others who have it. “They’re just like everybody else, except sometimes they get stressed out in certain situations,” Haggerty said.

bond with the men in their unit and often rely on the structure in their unit to feel safe.” John Yonek, a peer mentor at the UNT Veterans Center, said soldiers form a special bond with each other.

The UNT Student Government Association approved a $250 co-sponsorship resolution with the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity to host the second Annual Pike Wingman Challenge. T he proposa l, w h ich wa s broug ht for wa rd to SGA President Bla ke Windham by SGA senator and Pi Kappa Alpha member Adam Hasley, was granted emergenc y stat us a f ter being submitted past the Sunday midnight deadline for proposals. Emergency status allowed a vote to be held the same week the bill was proposed. Before approv i ng t he resolution Wednesday night, the SGA debated the legality of the proposed co-sponsorship, with some senators questioning the impact the resolution would have on the student body’s trust in the SGA since it was proposed by Hasley, a member of both the fraternity and SGA. “I hope that we would raise at least a little bit of controversy for this,” Senator Nicholas LaGrassa said. “From an outsider’s standpoint, this is going to look like cronyism.” The SGA is pushing to spend its remaining funds via co-sponsorships before the university absorbs leftover funds Sept. 1, LaGrassa said. “We need to start going out and getting co-sponsorships with other organizations instead of them

Publications committee selects summer, fall editors SEAN GORMAN
The Publications Committee met Wednesday afternoon to select the summer and fall editors-in-chief of the North Texas Daily. In less than an hour, the committee unanimously picked journalism senior Paul Bottoni as editor of the Dailyâ€™s summer magazine On the Record and photojournalism senior Chelsea Stratso as fall editor. Bottoni and Stratso were both the lone applicants for the position, which is decided by a selected committee of students, faculty and administrators. Nann Goplerud, chair of the Department of News, said she was impressed with each candidateâ€™s enthusiasm and candor toward the position. â€œThey both acknowledged that this is a big and important job,â€? Goplerud said. â€œThey both had the respect for the position, and they also have the drive and passion â€“ they want to do this.â€?
Summer Joining the paper in fall 2010, Bottoni has covered the football and menâ€™s golf teams as a writer in the sports section and worked as Managing Editor in the news section. He said he looks forward

to working with the magazine for the first time. Kathie Hinnen of the journalism faculty, the Dailyâ€™s adviser, said Bottoni was an excellent choice for the position. â€œPaulâ€™s experience will be invaluable as he leads the staff for the On the Record, and of course, the more timely news on the Dailyâ€™s website,â€? Hinnen said. â€œHe really cares, and it will show.â€? The Austin native said he plans to increase student awareness of the three monthly editions of On the Record while adding daily news stories and weekly videos to ntdaily.com. â€œIâ€™m going to get a schedule for freshman and transfer orientation days and set up a table there. Iâ€™d like the faces of the editorial board to be out there,â€? Bottoni said. â€œItâ€™s a two-pronged approach, itâ€™s that and social media. Weâ€™re trying to build a readership.â€?
Starting in summer 2011, Stratso has worked as a senior staff photographer and visuals assigning editor at the Daily. She plans to provide full coverage of UNTâ€™s efforts to reach tier-one status, include more features on professors and administration and give equal coverage to all athletic programs at UNT. Hinnen said she expects Stratso to excel in serving the student body. â€œIâ€™m i mpressed w it h her drive to reach out to students,â€? Hinnen said. â€œSheâ€™ll do a great job serving the interests of everyone on campus and in Denton.â€? Stratso said getting the paper more exposure will be a priority in the fall. â€œIâ€™d like social media to be used as a way to get students to have conversations about things. W hen weâ€™re at a game, meeting or event, weâ€™ll be live tweeting,â€? said Stratso, who plans to hire a social media manager to help promote the paper. â€œI really want more students to get involved in the Views section, I feel like thatâ€™s really their one chance to say how they feel.â€?
â€œFive yea rs ago today, I was sitting in the audience where youâ€™re sit t i ng, i n a da ze,â€? Uduebor sa id. â€œWe remember t hose who died by living. As long as I live, I have t he oppor t u n it y to make an impact.â€? The UNT College of Music Pep Ba nd per for me d t he

A view from last yearâ€™s Shack-a-thon. Students build â€œshacksâ€? out of cardboard boxes, duct tape and other materials to raise awareness for world poverty and money for UNT Habitat for Humanity. This year rules have changed: no one is allowed to camp in the shacks overnight, and there must only be three walls to a shack.
Shack-a-thon cancelled due to proposed UNT policy A SHLEY ROSE Intern
The 2012 Shack-a-thon has been canceled due to a proposed change to UNT policy that would end overnight camping on campus. The change was proposed in the wake of the death of Occupy Denton member Darwin Cox in December from what the Tarrant County medical examiner ruled as â€œmixed alcohol and morphine (heroin) intoxication.â€? UNTâ€™s chapter of Habitat for Humanity sent out an email in March to various student organizations saying this yearâ€™s Shack-a-thon was cancelled.

â€œUnits are diverse geographically and ethnically. Soldiers come from all walks of life and experience war together,â€? Yonek said. â€œWhat you experience together, you cannot forget. That bond is life-long.â€? Treatments for PTSD include exposure therapy, cognitive processing therapy and antianxiety or depression medications. â€œThe therapy I use most often is cognitive processing therapy,â€? Roberts said. â€œThe trauma causes them to see life as very black and white. With this therapy, we have them work with these thoughts and challenge them. This questioning allows them to work with their emotions a little more. It also decreases the chance that they will try to self-medicate with alcohol or drug abuse.â€? With PTSD, the more quickly a patient receives treatment, the faster recovery can be expected. â€œI donâ€™t think people think about PTSD that much when they are being deployed,â€? said business freshman William Stewart, of the Marine Corps Reserve. â€œI think you just have to go in prepared for anything.â€? The UNT Counseling and Testing Center offers eight free counseling sessions to students per academic year, though there may be charges for tests ordered by the counselors. Roberts said group therapy is recommended for veterans as well as avoiding situations that would cause them to experience trauma again. â€œWe recommend victims to avoid stress as much as possible,â€? Roberts said. â€œThe worst thing for people with PTSD is exposure to new trauma.â€? Staff photographer AshleyCrystal Firstley contributed to this story.

Texas Storm Chasers photographed this massive supercell rotating over West Texas on March 18. “Storms of this severity can go on to produce powerful tornadoes, large hail and severe winds,” member and photographer Mike Mezeul II said.
Group pursues storms ASHLEY GRANT
Senior Staff Writer For storm chasers in North Texas, the blaring sirens accompanying the tornadoes that swept through Dallas-Fort Worth earlier this month meant one thing. The hunt was on. The Texas Storm Chasers team – Oklahoma and North Texas residents Connor McCrorey, David Reimer and Jenny Brown – are hard at work this tornado season, spending long days in pursuit of potentially destructive storm systems. “Our goal is not only to view the storm from an aesthetic sense, but from a public safety standpoint,” Brown said. “If we see some imminent development of a tornado or other significant weather, we call it in to the local weather service or law enforcement so warnings can be activated.” North Texas is probably the most active area in Tornado Alley, and the biggest outbreaks typically occur from April to midJune, McCrorey said. On April 3, The Texas Storm Chasers were on the scene taking photos and documenting several of the estimated 12 tornadoes that sent 18-wheelers flying through the air and leveled homes and businesses in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. “It’s a different feeling when you’re chasing in the area you grew up in. It’s scarier and not as much of an adrenaline rush because I was thinking about the safety of my family and friends,” McCrorey said. “I had to make a lot of phone calls explaining what was going on and what to expect.” According to the National
Weather Service, more than 1,200 tornados are reported yearly. Texas sees the most of those tornadoes, with 155 of the national total touching down within state lines. McCrorey, a meteorology junior at the University of Oklahoma, estimates that about two-thirds of Texas’ tornadoes occur in North Texas. Most recently, the stormchasing crew made its way through Oklahoma and into southern Kansas, where tornadoes ripped through the area, leaving behind massive damage and killing five people just north of Oklahoma City. McCrorey said the experience was a mixture of adrenaline and awe. “You never know what to expect with severe weather, and in this case, it was intense and frightening,” he said. “In Kansas, we helped get a couple trapped in their basement out.” McCrorey and the other Texas Storm Chasers aren’t the only ones fascinated by severe and often destructive weather conditions. UNT English lecturer Amos Magliocco said he’s been chasing storms since 1996, especially during the summer. He said movies such as “Twister” give people the false notion that chasers are a bunch of adrenaline junkies trying to get themselves killed. “The m isconcept ion surrounding storm chasers is they are reckless daredevils, which isn’t the case at all,” he said. “A lot of chasers are meteorologists, research scientists or photographers looking at tornadoes from an aesthetic point of
view, trying to capture imagery they consider beautiful.” Study ing models, road networks and maps, and planning escape routes are just a few things Texas Storm Chaser Jenny Brown said the crew does days, sometimes weeks, before hitting the road. “Once we get our planning done, we meet up to review the latest surface data and frontal positions in order to narrow down a target zone,” she said. “We drive there and wait for things to start firing.” Brown, who works for Mary Kay at its corporate headquarters in Addison, is a Denton County resident who began spotting for her community a few years ago, although she only joined Texas Storm Chasers in January. McCrorey and Reimer launched the website TexasStormchasers. com in 2009 to share photos and videos they collected chasing storms. It’s continued to grow over the years and has become a vital source of information regarding severe weather for visitors, Brown said. Although there are no formal requirements, Brown said anyone interested in storm chasing should take free Skywarn Storm Spotter training classes, which are held all over the country, and invest in the best equipment their budget will allow. “For most people, storm chasing isn’t really something you can make a career out of, it’s more of a passion,” she said. “Most chasers do it because they’ve been interested since a young age and are passionate about beautiful storm structures and enjoy the varying forces of nature.”
Keeping an active mind GRANT CHICHESTER Contributing Writer
“W hat wou ld you ca l l someone w it h a ment a l illness?” This was the question written at the top of a blue poster in the University Union at a table recently manned by members of Active Minds. Below it were the student responses: Schizo. Psycho. Idiot. Crazy, among others. Haylee Hastings, who is working on her master’s of science i n rehabi l itat ion counseling, initially formed the North Texas chapter of Active Minds as an advocacy project for her Introduction to Rehabilitation class. When the class ended, she continued with the organization, which became an official chapter last October. The 15-member group’s goal is to decrease the stigma associated with mental illnesses through education and awareness, and to provide a place for people with mental illnesses to go before seeking official treatment. “Mental illnesses should be treated just like you have strep throat,” Hastings said. “You
go to the doctor, and you get treated. It shouldn’t be some taboo thing.” Ac t ive M i nd s member Heather Presley, a theater arts senior and honors student, has bipolar disorder. All her life, she said, she has dealt with the stigma of having a mental illness. “Even in my family we don’t talk about it,” Presley said. “It’s sort of all pushed under the carpet.” Her roommate told her about the organization last semester, and Presley has been advocating for it ever since. The national organization was started in 2001 by a woman whose brother was suffering from depression and committed suicide because he didn’t know where to go and was embarrassed about his condition, according to the Active Minds website. “Suicide is the No. 2 leading cause of death on college campuses,” Hastings said. “A lot of that comes from people who have mental health issues that they don’t know how to cope with.” Rehabilitation counseling master’s student and North
Texas Active Minds secretary Rebecca Vrla witnessed the impact of the social attitude associated with mental illness while working at Green Oaks psychiatric hospital in Dallas. “As patients were going home and getting discharged their No. 1 concern was, ‘I don’t know if I can face my family, I’m scared to do this,’” she said. “So I definitely recognize that there’s such horrible stigma just because people don’t understand it.” Behind the “What do you call someone with…?” poster at the Union recently was another. At the top, it read, “Would you call ____ that name?” with pictures of people such as Abraham Lincoln and Jim Carrey, who had and have depression, and Isaac Newton, who had bipolar disorder, in the space below. “Just because you have a mental illness doesn’t mean you’re crazy,” Presley said. “You have a chemical imbalance that needs medication. That’s it. Bottom line.” For more information, visit the North Texas Active Minds Facebook page at www.facebook.com/pages/North-TexasActive-Minds.
Poet and novelist Laura Kasischke, the recent winner of the UNT Creative Writing Program’s first Rilke Prize, will read from her work and visit with students tonight at 8 p.m. in room 255 of the Eagle Student Services Center. Kasischke is the author of eight novels and eight collections of poetry, including “Space, In Chains,” the book for which she received the Rilke Prize, a $10,000 award recognizing outstanding books w ritten by midcareer authors. This is the first year that the prize has been awarded. “Kasischke stood out as a poet of immense emotional power, cha r m, verba l invent ion a nd conceptual subtlety,” said English professor Bruce Bond, a judge for the prize. “Space, In Chains” is a collection of poetry that Bond said contains multitudes of positive energy and insight. The poems are personal, relatable and emotional because of Kasisch ke’s exceptional use of tonal range and description of life as we know it, Bond said. K a si sch ke i s h ig h ly accomplished in both poetry and fiction, and two of her novels have been adapted into movies, including “The Life Before Her Eyes,” starring Uma Thurman.

Laura Kasischke is the first winner of the UNT Rilke Prize and will perform a free poetry reading at 8 p.m. in room 225 of the Eagle Student Services Center on Thursday. Prize, said “Space, In Chains” explores imaginative freedom in the face of personal loss.
“Kasischke stood out as a poet of immense emotional power.”
—Bruce Bond English professor
“Kasischke reveals a penetrating insight into what makes people work and not work through her characteristic emotional range, wit, surprising and uncanny imagery, and an intensity created through spare
and radiant language,” Marks said. Social work sophomore Celes Galttana, a fan of Kasischke’s work, plans to attend the reading. “I found ‘Space, In Chains’ to be very relatable and beautifully written,” Galttana said. Before her reading at the Eagle Student Services Center, Kasischke will answer student questions at 4 p.m. in the Language Building room 316. Bond said the College of English will end this semester with readings from the creative writing faculty April 27, and that the college is already gearing up for next semester’s Visiting Writers Series, which will include authors such as Kevin Prufer, Dana Levin and Lisa Russ Spaar.

UNT finishes fourth at SBC Championship Intern
Despite shooting its best round of the tournament with a 6-over par 294, the Mean Green womenâ€™s golf team couldnâ€™t pass Florida International and finished fourth in the Sun Belt Conference Championship in Muscle Shoals, Ala., on Wednesday. Denver never relinquished its lead after the first round en route to its eighth consecutive SBC title. Middle Tennessee finished 17 strokes behind the Pioneers for a second-place finish. While fourth wasnâ€™t what head coach Jeff Mitchell wanted, he said heâ€™s optimistic about the future of the program. â€œW hen you have t h ree seniors, you wonder if youâ€™re going to be able to fill those shoes,â€? Mitchell said. â€œThe way Chaslyn [Chrismer] and McKenzie [Ralston] played, theyâ€™re going to be able to carry the torch.â€? Seniors Jacey Chun, Kelsey
Kipp and Addison Long all finished their final Sun Belt tournament in the top 25. Chun, who shot 1-over par each of the three rounds, finished the tournament in sixth place. After the tournament, Chun was awarded All-Conference.
â€œIâ€™m really excited about the future.â€?
â€”Jeff Mitchell Head coach, tennis
Kipp, Long and Ralston tied for 24th at 15-over par. Chrismer improved her second-round score by seven strokes, as she climbed up 10 spots from the second round to finish 33rd. UNT needed to win the tournament to qualify for the NCAA Regional Tournament. The team could still get an at-large bid, although it is unlikely.
Mitchell said Chun may get an individual invite. The Regional tournament begins May 10. After the team finished its four fall tournaments with three top-five finishes, the Mean Green failed to finish higher than sixth place in five spring tournaments. Although their collegiate career is likely over, the seniors will continue to play golf. Chun already has Symetra Tour status, which means she can play on the worldâ€™s largest international development tour. The tour develops golfers for the Ladies Professional Golf Association. Mitchell also said Kipp will work towards a career in golf. While this season may not have gone as expected for the Mean Green, it is still a historic end for the Mean Green womenâ€™s golf team. â€œIâ€™m really excited about the future,â€? Mitchell said. â€œAnd this will still go down as the second-best season in school history.â€?
Nationally ranked Sooners out-hit UNT in Norman BRETT MEDEIROS Senior Staff Writer
T h e No. 7 O k l a h o m a Sooner s ( 36 - 6 ) rema i ned undefeated all-time against the UNT softball team (19-221), as the Sooners took a 9-4 home w i n Wed nesday i n Norman, Ok la., for its 21st consecut ive w i n over t he Mean Green. The Mean Green hit three solo home runs off the team w it h t he nat ionâ€™s lowe st earned run average, but OU sealed the win by outscoring UNT 5-1 in the gameâ€™s final three innings. â€œThatâ€™s the unfortunate part of what we do,â€? head coach T.J. Hubbard said. â€œThey [the home runs] were big hits, but they werenâ€™t really at the right time with the right people on base. It really would have been better if they were multi-run homers.â€? Each team found its way
onto the scoreboard in the second inning, but Oklahoma did more damage, as the Mean Green found itself down 3-1 early. In the fourth inning, UNT got t he long ba ll work ing. Wit h a solo home r un by senior infielder Lisa Johnson a nd s oph om or e c a t c he r Ashley McCarroll, the Mean Green tied the game at three apiece. â€œI felt like we all gained a lot of confidence out there,â€? McCarroll said. â€œWe have a lot of respect for them [OU], but we still didnâ€™t take them lightly at all. We know we can play the same level of ball they can play.â€? Ju n ior pitcher Br it ta ny Simmons started the game for UNT, surrendering three earned runs in three innings. In the fourth inning, Hubbard brought sophomore pitcher A sh ley K i rk i n to rel ieve
Si m mons a nd t he Sooner offense came alive. â€œYou know she [Kirk] did her job just as I did mine,â€? Simmons said. â€œOk la homa is just a really great hitting [tea m]. She gave a g reat change of pace to the game, but theyâ€™re just that good.â€? After UNT tied the game in the fourth inning, Oklahoma sent ju n ior A l l-A mer ic a n pitcher Keilani Ricketts to the circle. Ricketts, who ca me within an out of pitching a perfect game against UNT in February, held the Mean Green to one run on one hit. Sophomore infielder Jordan Terryâ€™s seventh-inning home run was the final UNT run of the game. The Mean Green will jump back into conference play with a three-game series against South Alabama starting April 21 in Lovelace Stadium.

UNT gears up to host conference tournament TYLER OWENS
The Mean Green tennis team will try to keep its conference dominance going tomorrow when it hosts the Sun Belt Conference Womenâ€™s Tennis Championship, which will begin at 8 a.m. today. UNT will not see its first action until Friday at 11:30 a.m., as it was announced Tuesday the No. 59 Mean Green (15-6, 6-0) had earned a No. 1 seed and a first-round bye for the tournament for the first time in program history. The tournament will be played at the Waranch Tennis Complex throughout the weekend. â€œHopefully weâ€™re going to go to a final on Sunday, but I cannot say Iâ€™m ready to play finals because we have two more matches before that,â€? junior Barbora Vykydalova said. â€œWeâ€™ll focus on the first match on Friday, and then we will see.â€? Each of the tournamentâ€™s other top four seeds â€“ Denver, Middle Tennessee and Florida International â€“ also received a first-round bye. The Mean Green has certainly become hot at the right time, head coach Sujay Lama said. The team has won 13 of its last 16 matches,

including four straight, and is 6-0 in conference play. Senior Paula Dinuta was also named SBC Co-Player of the Week on Tuesday for the second time this season and the third time of her career. In three UNT victories last week, she won three singles and three doubles matches. â€œWeâ€™ve got a nice target on our back, but weâ€™re ready,â€? Lama said. Dinuta, Vykydalova and senior captain Irina Paraschiv were a part of the 2010 team that won the tournament two years ago, something that could work in the Mean Greenâ€™s advantage. â€œIâ€™m really motivated because I want to get another ring,â€? Vykydalova said. â€œIâ€™m excited because I already experienced the winning feeling, and I just want to win the championship.â€? While there is a veteran presence at the forefront of the team, there are four players that have never participated in the SBC Tournament. That hasnâ€™t
stopped the Sun Belt rookies from remaining positive. â€œI feel confident because weâ€™ve played a lot of good matches, especially this weekend in Troy,â€? freshman Kseniya Bardabush said. â€œI played two hard matches, so I feel pretty confident.â€? Florida International eliminated the Mean Green in the semifinals of last yearâ€™s tournament. UNT has played motivated tennis ever since, Lama said. â€œI think we are on a mission,â€? Lama said. â€œSince that last point against FIU last year weâ€™ve made it a mission to bring that championship back to North Texas. Thatâ€™s our ultimate goal, but right now weâ€™d love to win our match on Friday.â€? UNT will face the winner of todayâ€™s match between No. 8 Arkansas State and No. 9 Florida Atlantic at 11:30 a.m. If the Mean Green wins its first match Friday, it will play Saturday at 9 a.m. If it emerges victorious in that match, it will play in the finals Sunday at 1 p.m.

What is your opinion on Denton’s “No streets” ordinance for boarders?
“I don’t agree with that. You should just have the freedom to travel with what transportation you have and what’s more convenient to you.”
“It should be at the discretion of the skateboarder. I definitely don’t think they should have earphones in, just so they can hear cars coming behind them.”
“I work for public transportation, so we catch people all the time skateboarding. They could hurt someone very seriously. I don’t think they’re always aware of their surroundings. It’s more of a safety issue.”

Texas shouldn’t over-simplify divorce Americans for Divorce Reform projects that if current trends continue, up to 50 percent of marriages would end in divorce. With that in mind, it seems odd that the Texas Supreme Court is considering a simplified divorce form that would eliminate expensive attorneys to make it easier for Texas citizens to obtain a legal separation. The Edboard disagrees with this potential approach to the divorce process and urges the Texas State Supreme Court to consider the impact this could have on marriage. The first problem with this form would be the unnecessary oversimplification of an already simple process. Dallas County Family Court Judge
Lynn Cherry told the Dallas Observer, “It simplifies it for people who don’t have a lot of conflict, who don’t have property, just as existing forms already do.” Cherry said she has plenty of individuals represent themselves during divorce proceedings, and much of her time is spent explaining where to sign forms and what those forms mean. She doesn’t believe a new form, the one that would be used by the same people who currently forego legal council, would change anything. Furthermore, almost half of marriages end in divorce, proving that the process is easy enough. The second problem with this law
is the message that it sends from the state to citizens about the seriousness of divorce. Marriage is a legal bond between a man and a woman, and as such it should be respected. The words “sanctity of marriage” get thrown around a lot in today’s society, but never in respect to divorce, which is the ultimate compromise of marriage’s sanctity. This law says, “Sure, marriage is a lifelong contract between two people, but if you want to end that, we’ll help you expedite the process.” Maybe, just maybe, the added complications are a good thing, at least as far as preserving marriage goes.
We’re in a time when a statement like “people should think first about preserving their marriage before walking away” could be construed as an old-fashioned or backwards thought. However, with divorce rates skyrocketing, shouldn’t the state be encouraging the preservation of marriage rather than providing an easy out? While the new form may offer a more affordable divorce alternative, Cherry believes there’s a better solution for couples. She told the Observer that ideally, a free attorney should be provided for administrative guidance, even on open and shut divorce cases, because no form can substitute for the professional advice of an attorney.
Healthy really is the new skinny “Healthy is the New Skinny” is a remarkable campaign that highlights the importance of being healthy as opposed to the industry standard of “skinny” or “thin.” Those words, along with identifiers such as “curvy,” have nothing but negat ive con notat ions for average girls who truly do have curves and aren’t just sticks, or the ones who are not fat, not ugly, but are not obsessed with being skin and bones. It’s also a confusing dilemma to be obsessed with the glossies and high fashion and not be a ra i l. W h i le I u ndersta nd why a desig ner wa nts models t hat wa lk t he r unways to look li ke they do, there should be a line. T h o s e a r e n’t r e a l , h e a l t h y women. This campaign gained a little traction when it debuted a photo of an average-sized woman but with “cut here” lines all over her body and descriptions beside certain parts that would make her look like a Barbie. It has not received enough attention in regard to its promoting a healthy diet and body image and its stance against many fashion magazines today for their unnatural portrayals of the human body. T h roug h t hei r “A mba ssadors” program, the campaign follows different types of women in all occupat ions, not ing how t heir weight affects their lives. “Healthy is the New Skinny” a lso inspired its suppor ters to i nc ite cha nge w it h big-na me company Billabong – which brands itself as being surfing-esque – to give props to a notable surfer, Bo
Stanley. She was not featured on the company’s website because she did not fit the t y pica l size requirements of a model. A p e t i t i on f r om “He a l t h y i s t he Ne w Sk i n ny ” cha nge d t hat, a nd St a n le y now ha s a g a l l e r y on B i l l a b on g ’s s i t e . Some women are naturally tall and thin, and “Healthy is the New Skinny” promotes that, too. It promotes a l l body t y pes, guiding girls through body image issues imposed on them for whatever reason. One body type is not superior over a not her, a nd it’s g reat to see this organization taking root and making a difference on the way girls deal with their bodies. As a movement, they recognize you can’t change your bones, but you can take care of them, and they don’t need to protrude in unhealthy ways just to take a few good photos.

The new religion of environmentalism With Earth Day fast approaching (April 22), Americans might want to consider how environmentalism is becoming a new form of religion. They also might want to ask: Why is it OK to teach environmental religion in public schools, while the teaching of Judaism, Christianity and other traditional religions is not constitutionally permitted? Environmentalism has, indeed, become an article of religious faith. As Joel Garreau, a former Washington Post editor, wrote in 2010, “faith-based environmentalism increasingly sports saints, sins, prophets, predictions, heretics, sacraments and rituals.” Some argue that a religion must have a God, disqualifying environmentalism. Yet, as the great American psychologist and philosopher William James observed in his 1902 classic, “The Varieties of Religious Experience,” it is not necessary to “positively assume a God” in order to have a religion. James insisted that “godless or quasi-godless creeds” also can qualify as religions, which – given its devout belief system and the fervor of its adherents – clearly would include today’s environmentalism. Even as it adopts secular forms, environmentalism borrows to a surprising degree from Jewish and Christian history. For example, it says in Deuteronomy that, for those who worship false idols, God “will send disease among you ... fever, infections, plague and war.... (and) will blight your crops.” In 2010, Al Gore similarly foresaw environmental sinners headed toward calamity on a biblical scale, facing rising seas, “stronger and more destructive” hurricanes and droughts “getting longer and deeper.”
In contemporary environmentalism, the largest religious debts are owed to Calvinism. It was John Calvin who wrote that God has “revealed himself and daily discloses himself in the whole workmanship of the universe.” For both Calvin and environmentalism, the natural world is the artwork of God, the Creation. Man’s role is to conserve God’s work. Thus, the rituals of environmentalism celebrate reduced consumption - lowering the heat, driving fewer miles, using less water, living in smaller houses, having fewer children. Limiting human appetites, rather than satisfying evergrowing demands, is the environmental command. As prominent an environmentalist as David Brower, who served as executive director of the Sierra Club for 18 years, has described human existence as a terrible “cancer” destroying God’s good Creation. Being environmentally “born again” was for Brower - and many other environmentalists - the only good answer to modern man’s environmental corruption and sinfulness. The issue posed by environmentalism today for those who believe in the separation of church and state is the following: Does it make sense constitutionally to prohibit the teaching and embrace of Judaism and Protestantism in official public settings, while permitting the government establishment – as taught in the public schools – of this new secularized Protestantism: the religion of green, the religion of Earth Day. This editorial originally appeared in The Independent on April 18.
