Burggren talks future of UNT with SGA BEN PEYTON Intern

The UNT Student Government Association met with Warren Burggren, UNT provost and vice president for academic affairs, and appointed one senator during its meeting Wednesday night. President V. Lane Rawlins was originally scheduled to speak to the SGA but was unable to attend. Burggren spoke instead and discussed the future of UNT. “We are in the middle of taking off,” Burggren said. “In 2020, I bet this will be a fundamentally better university, and you will have had something to do with it.” Burggren assured the SGA that the tuition students pay is well worth the money, and UNT plans to improve its programs. “I can promise you we are plowing this [funds from tuition] directly into the endeavor to benefit students,” Burggren said. Tier One status and greater representation for UNT were

After Burggren spoke, the SGA appointed fashion design junior Ava Sharbaf to represent the College of Visual Arts and Design. Sharbaf gained interest in joining the SGA after attending meetings. “I really enjoyed how informative they were about things on campus,” Sharbaf said. “I thought why not come all the time, hear what’s going on, know what’s going on and represent.”

Relocation Study maps out CVAD future home NICOLE BALDERAS Senior Staff Writer

A “UNT University Union Relocation Study” released March 22 mapped out a plan for all university facilities that will be affected pending enough votes in favor of Union renovations. The plan would relocate the College of Visual Arts and Design as well as the Department of Dance and Theatre Arts to 42,800 square feet of space across Welch Street where the Church of Christ currently resides. “Up until just now, [last] week, it hadn’t been clear to me what would replace the buildings,” said Robert Milnes, dean of CVAD. “We talked for months about the possibility of modular buildings. What they’re doing is really quite wonderful.” The building will accommodate CVAD with about 4,000 square feet of additional classroom space in comparison to

the college’s space in Scoular Hall, where students are sometimes forced to leave cramped classrooms to work on projects in hallways. Though proposed as temporary buildings, the modular structures will possibly have a life of 20 to 25 years, Milnes said.

“I am worried for the future of the program.” —Ava Sharbaf Fashion design junior

“These buildings will not be like portable trailers,” Union Director Zane Reif said. “They will be specifically modeled to house CVAD and will be very

well-made. I don’t see these buildings going away even after CVAD moves out.” Students have expressed concern for programs housed in Scoular and Stovall halls after the buildings are demolished and abated – an $830,000 cost to be funded by Union fees. “Because t he [modular] buildings are temporary, I am worried for the future of the program,” fashion design junior Ava Sharbaf said. “It’s disheartening that Union plans are more solid than our plans. The Union is more for aesthetics, and our program is educational.” Scoular Hall is set to be demolished June 2013, with Stovall following two years after in June of 2015. Though Scoular Hall’s demolition would coincide with the groundbreaking of the new Union, demolition will take place regardless of the outcome of Union votes.

UNT Outdoor Pursuits staff members are hard at work remodeling the climbing wall at the Pohl Recreation Center, in anticipation of more than 100 climbers this weekend. O n S a t u r d a y, U N T Outdoor Pursuits will host the 8th Annual Red Point Riot Climbing Competition at the Pohl Recreation Center. The competition is a part of the Collegiate Climbing Series, which UNT had a hand in starting in 2009. The series was started for students who competed in USA Climbing in high school and had no way to continue with competitive climbing in college. “Expect to have fun and be welcomed in and be challenged,” said Rebecca Salsman, an Outdoor Pursuits staff member. Last yea r’s compet ition featured more than 100 competitors from nine different Texas schools including UNT, according to Assistant Director of Outdoor Pursuits Ben Hanisian. After the climbing wall closes Wednesday, the UNT Outdoor Pursuits staff will take all the holds off the climbing wall and clean them and the wall before adding about 40 new routes for the competition. Each new route can take anywhere from two to four hours to add. “It’s really impressive they put this on and do it so successfully,” Hanisian said. Since many of the staff members have experience with outdoor climbing, the routes are usually comparable to outdoor conditions. The routes from the contest will also be up for a while after the competition so climbers can come back and try them.


Geography junior Marcio DaSilva installs new routes on the Pohl Recreation Center climbing wall Wednesday afternoon. “When the old routes come down, we have to wash the routes and reset them,” DaSilva said. The competition will have two sessions, the first starting at 9 a.m. and the second starting at 1:30 p.m. Climbers will be divided into three groups by their level of experience. They will be awarded points for climbs completed without falling, with more points being awarded for more difficult climbs completed. There is a $20 fee for the competition, which includes a T-shirt and a chance to win prizes. Climbers must be at least 16 years old and have to sign the UNT Indoor Climbing Facility Participant Waiver. Climbers also run the risk of being turned away

if they don’t preregister. “The wall is only so big, if we’re slammed we may have to turn people away,” Hanisian said. Fol low i ng t he s e c ond climbing session, t he top three climbers in each division are decided by who has the most points from their top five climbs. The top three finishers will receive certificates, and all the climbers will be able to win door prizes in a raffle featuring products from the sponsors. More information on the event can be found at recsports.unt.edu.

City plans for population increase Justin Bright

The North Texas region has seen a great deal of growth in the past 10 years­. Ten-yea r nu mbers f rom the 2010 U.S. Census show the population of the City of Denton went from 80,537 in 2000 to 113,383 in 2010, a 40.8 percent change.

The council spearheaded work to contain areas on the outskirts of the cit y limits through annexation to avoid sprawling urban areas cities like Frisco must deal with. “The next plan will call for more urban density between the downtown area and the t wo universities,� Gregor y said. “There’s a great deal

Gregory expressed concern for industrial growth. “Another thing we work on is diversif y ing our ta x base. If we have just one or two manufacturers or industrial companies here and one leaves, you’re looking at a lot of jobs being taken away.�

(MCT) OAKLAND, Calif. – At a memorial for the victims of the mass shooting at Oikos University in Oakland, devastated family and friends prayed, shed tears and mourned for the seven whose lives were lost. Nam Soo Woo, the small Christian university’s vice president, recounted a conversation he had earlier in the day to mourners who filled the pews of the dimly lit, stained glasslined hall Tuesday night. The devastated father of Lydia Sim, a 21-year-old nursing student from Hayward, told him of how he had lived for his daughter, Woo said. “For 35 years after I came to the U.S., I lived to raise my daughter as someone who

would serve society, and that dream has been quashed,� the father said, Woo recalled. “I can’t understand.� “I told him, ‘I can’t understand it either,’� Woo said. Reflecting the diversity of those who were killed, the prayers were in Korean and English with a smattering of Tibeta n a nd Hebrew. Jean Quan, the city’s mayor, remarked Oakland was a place that “prays in 130 different languages.� Tenzin Tsedup, president of the Tibetan Assn. of Northern California, remembered his friend Sonam Choedon, 33, as a “simple, kind� woman. She worked in India for the Tibetan government in exile for five

years before coming to the U.S., Tsedup said. Choedon, he said, was one of two Tibetans killed in Monday’s shooting rampage. “We all must unite as a community and teach compassion and love,� he said. Quan spoke in fierce defense of the city of Oakland. The violence could have happened in any other U.S. city, she said. “This is America, where you can find a gun easier than mental health services,� she said, to resounding applause. “These are people who came together at the school because Oakland is a city of dreams,� Quan said of the victims. They are what “makes the city and

makes it vibrant,� the mayor said. The memorial was held soon after six of the seven shooting victims were identified by the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office Coroner’s Bureau. The victims included Sim, Choedon, Bhutia Tshering, 38, Judith O. Seymore, 53, Kim G. Eunhea, 23, and Doris Chibuko, 40. The suspect, One L. Goh, 43, is scheduled to appear in court Wednesday. Authorities say Goh had been expelled from Oikos this year for behavioral problems, including anger issues. He allegedly ordered the students inside the school to line up against the wall Monday morning. When some refused, he opened fire, officials said.

Little Women take the stage at Campus Theatre Brittni Barnett Senior Staff Writer

Jo is something of a tomboy who has big dreams of being a writer. “Jo is a character,� said development a nd fa m i ly studies junior Katelyn Branson, who plays the character of Jo. “She is stubborn and stands her ground.

Mark Phillips, assistant dean for UNT’s Digital Libraries, was named by the Library Journal as one of its “Movers and Shakers 2012� March 15 for his work in restructuring UNT’s Digital Library.

Librarian, tech leader recognized for work Christopher G. Lewis Contributing Writer

Mark Phillips, assistant dean for UNT’s Digital Libraries, was recently named one of Library Journal’s “Movers and Shakers 2012� in the tech leaders category. Phillips, who earned a master’s degree in library science from UNT in 2004, received the award for helping restructure UNT’s world-renowned digital library system. He will be honored at a luncheon during the American Library Association’s summer conference in Anaheim, Calif. this June. The Library Journal began recognizing individuals for their work and innovation in the field of library science in 2001. Categories include community builders, advocates, change agents, innovators, recession busters and tech leaders. Out of about 500 nominated candidates in 2012, 53 were selected as “movers and shakers� by the popular trade publication. “It’s a cool thing to be one of their peers,� Phillips said. “Then you get that brief period where everyone congratulates you.� Phillips, the sixth librarian in his family along with both parents, two aunts and a cousin, calls being a librarian “kind of a family business.� He said he finds it interesting to see where libraries interact with people’s lives and how users

access the content. “Information doesn’t organize itself,� Phillips said. “For me, it’s exciting to see how the web allows us to reach new audiences with services.� Phillips earned his bachelor’s degree in music performance from Oklahoma City University in 2002 and plays bass with the Fort Smith Symphony in Arkansas, performing about seven concerts a year. Phillips enjoys the outdoors, whether he’s hiking, kayaking or seeing nature from behind a camera as a photographer. He said he’s currently learning English-style horseback riding and contemplating picking up polo. Hannah Tarver, department head of the UNT libraries’ digital projects unit, has worked with Phillips since August 2007. “I wasn’t terribly surprised when he was named a mover and shaker,� Tarver said. “He’s very involved in library science, not just thinking about how to improve but how we can be leaders in the field.� Phillips said the biggest challenge has been the hard work involved in structuring the electronic system and the sheer volume of information to be digitized. The digital projects unit has already transferred more than 60,000 items into the digital collection. “It takes a lot to get people

to collaborate,� Phillips said. Daniel Alemneh, digital curator of the UNT libraries’ digital projects unit, said that naming Phillips a mover and shaker was long overdue. Alemneh has been a colleague of Phillips’ since they were both students. Their first project was providing electronic access to government documents for the U.S. Advisory Commission on Intergovernmental Relations. The ACIR was established in 1959 to study ways to improve efficiency in relations between federal agencies. UNT is now an archive for state and national digital resources and was also the third university in the world to mandate electronic copies of these documents. “[Phillips] has grown exceptionally fast over time,� Alemneh said. “He has a rare technical skill, not common for librarians. He bridges the gap and can communicate the libraries’ needs with the programmers.� Because of the work of people like Phillips, the future of UNT’s digital libraries is wide open. “There’s so many opportunities,� Phillips said. “We have infrastructure in place, and now we can focus on content.�

Series win could launch softball team Opinion BRETT MEDEIROS Senior Staff Writer


Junior Eric Stein prepares to pass the ball to junior Trevor Swift during UNT’s game against Texas Christian University at Fouts Field on March 7. The Mean Green lost 11-7 to the Horned Frogs.

UNT ends season on the road Men’s Lacrosse A LISON ELDRIDGE Senior Staff Writer

A f ter its season sta r ted w it h much opt i m ism, t he Mean Green men’s lacrosse club (1-8, 0-3) will close out the 2011-2012 campaign with three games on the road. “Having all of our players t here w ill be a big adva nt a ge,” head c oach C ose y Carlisle said. “In our other road games I think we really beat ourselves up – more than the other team beat us even – and not making the one or two critical mistakes we’ve been making will be key.” Despite a 1-3 home record, bei ng able to play home ga mes at Fout s Field ha s been a benefit to the team, Carlisle said. In the past, the team has played its home games at the recreational fields on Bonnie Brae Street. Before the start

of this season, Carlisle gained permission to play the team’s home games at Fouts Field. In its only victory of the season, t he Mea n Green beat Rice 15-4 Feb. 4 at home. “It has definitely helped to have our games at Fouts,” he

its next game against conference opponent Texas Tech (1-11, 0-4) at 7 p.m. Saturday may bring an opportunity for it to move up in the Lone Star Alliance Conference standings. Texas Tech is in last place in the North Division,

“It’ll come down to who’s more consistent, doesn’t make critical mistakes and just tries the hardest.”

—Cosey Carlisle Head coach, men’s lacrosse

said. “It’s nice to have more fans show up, and knowing we get to play t here looks good for t he prog ra m a nd shows new recruits we’ve got a quality place to play.” W h i le t he club has lost each of its conference games,

one spot behind the Mean Green. T he tea ms have t raded wins and losses, with Tech up one victory over the Mean Green over t he past seven years. Last year, the Mean Green took a 9-4 w in, but

lost by one point in the 2010 matchup. “Tech is hav ing a dow n year as well,” Carlisle said. “It‘l l come dow n to who’s more c on si stent, doe sn‘t make critical mistakes and just tries the hardest.” A lt houg h t he tea m w i l l not make the playoffs for the first time in eight seasons, ever y team goes through a dow n season occasiona lly, Carlisle said. Last year the club competed in the conference final four. “We had some big injuries hurt us in the Baylor game,” he said. “And a number of the guys couldn’t afford or didn’t have the time to make it on our long road trip. It sucks for t he seniors, but it just happens sometimes.” Following Tech, the Mean Green will face New Mexico in Lubbock on Sunday and close out its season against Southern Methodist in Dallas on April 11.

Seniors lead Mean Green in many ways Tennis TYLER OWENS Staff Writer

Any senior on any team can say they provide leadership, but sen iors Pau la Di nuta, Irina Pa raschiv a nd Nadia Miller née Lee have plenty more to offer the UNT tennis team. “They’re the glue that binds the team together,” associate head coach Jeff Maren said. “T hey prov ide t he mat urity, the confidence and the composure, so those things make up a strong bond.”

Embracing change While it took time to adjust a f ter t ra nsfer r i ng f rom Lee College in 2010, Miller beca me ent h ra l led at t he chance to play for a Division I school. She now feels that she has raised her level of play and is having tremendous success. Miller immediately made a splash at UNT, as she finished her first season with a 20-13 singles record and received

t he C at a l i na C r u z Spi r it Aw a rd, a long w it h bei ng named Sun Belt Conference Player of the Week in midFebruary. This year has been anything but a letdown for Mi l ler, who has compi led an 8-5 singles record so far, including v ictories against two ranked opponents.

Team first T houg h Dinuta has received numerous accolades over her career – including Sun Belt Player of the Week honors t w ice – her biggest accompl ish ments were helpi ng her tea m w i n t he SBC Championship in 2010 and her performance in the classroom. “Winning the conference was a very good accomplishment, tennis-wise, but then in school I also have a pretty good GPA,” she said. For D i nut a , t he t e a m means as much to her as she means to it. “We had ups and dow ns like everybody has, but I can say I grew a lot over these four

years, and it changed me c om p l e t e l y f rom who I was before. Def initely t h e s e f ou r years had a PAULA big i mp a c t DINUTA on my life,” D i nut a s a id . “I’m m or e mature, more confident in myself, a better athlete and a better student.”

Captain’s accolades Though hindered by two injuries during her college c a r e e r, t e a m c a pt a i n Paraschiv has accomplished what most players can only dream of. A Recipient of Player of the Week honors as a freshman a nd t he Mea n Green M V P award twice, she has set the sta nda rd of excel lence for the team. Paraschiv was not available for comment. “They’re very valuable, not just for their ability to play tennis but for their personality and maturity as well,”



Maren said. “Coach [Sujay La ma] a nd I look at t hese girls like our daughters, so it’s tough to let them go out into the world, but we also know that they’re prepared to do that. We are sad to see them go, but we are confident that they can handle whatever lies in front of them.” U N T h a s fou r r e g u l a r season games left before it hosts the SBC Championships on April 19.. “The next goal for me is to help contribute to the team w inning conference. From there, we have great opportunities to go even further,” Miller said. “We take it one step at a t i me, a nd we’re look ing to go as fa r as we can.”

What do the 2004 Boston Red Sox, the 2011 Dallas Mavericks and t he 2011 New York Giants all have in common? A monumental, seasoncha ng i ng ga me i n t he re g u la r or post se a son made each a championship-caliber team. Last weekend, t he UNT softball team won a three-game series against Wester n Kent uck y a nd made a final inning comeback in each game after struggling late in games all season. I’m not saying last weekend’s comebacks against WKU will launch this team past the nationally ranked Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns, but they may put the Mean Green in ULL’s rearview mirror – as long as UNT doesn’t take the comebacks for granted. Maybe it’s the fact the team finally got the ball to f ly its way, but t he Mean Green now has more momentum than ever. Look at this year’s NCAA men’s basketball runnersup in Kansas. That team played above its ta lent level all season, but the momentum it built up all season wasn’t enough to carr y the Jayhawks to a championship victory. If the Mean Green can harness its inner Jayhawk, it c a n bec ome a ver y dangerous team. Momentum is nothing new this season for a UNT team. This past season, the UNT men’s basketball team failed to reach 20 wins for the first time in six years,

Brett Medeiros but the team still came within seconds of making its third NCA A Tournament appearance since 2007. Now it is the softball team’s turn to become t hat underestimated tea m that surprises everyone. Just like the men’s basketball team did, the softball team has things to fix before thinking about making a run into the conference tournament. The pitching still needs some help. This team lives and dies by the long ball, but scoring about five runs per game doesn’t help much when the pitchers also give up about five runs a game. T h i s w e e k end’s s er ie s against the Florida Atlantic Owls gives UNT the perfect oppor t u n it y to ga i n even more moment u m for t he Mean Green. FAU currently sits in last place in the Sun Belt Conference and statistically has the worst offense in the conference, with a team batting average of .235 and just more than three runs scored per game. T here is not h i ng more t hreatening t ha n a young team growing confident. Keep in mind, the only senior that’s doing any damage at the plate is Caitlin Grimes. The Mean Green now has an opportunity to take its third series victory of the season against a mediocre team and continue its upward swing.

UNT vs Florida Atlantic Looking ahead to this weekend’s key players: Brett Medeiros / Senior Staff Writer

UNT Junior Pitcher

Junior Pitcher/Infielder

Simmons is the Mean Green’s go-to pitcher. She has accounted for half of the team’s total innings pitched. Her groundout style has treated her well this season, as she’s held opposing hitters to a .252 batting average. Simmons ranks ninth in earned run average in the Sun Belt Conference at 2.74 and has appeared in the most games of any pitcher this season.

Fawbush is one of the top hitters in the conference. Her ability to work the count makes her a tough out. Her on-base percentage of .462 is eighth best in the Sun Belt. She is also in the top 10 in walks and doubles. While being one of the Owls’ best hitters, she is also the team’s top pitcher. Her 63 strikeouts are ninth best in the conference and she has pitched in 100.1 innings this season.

Brittany Simmons

Caitlin Grimes



Taylor Fawbush Senior Catcher

Junior First Baseman

Grimes is the backbone of one of the most powerful lineups in the Sun Belt. Her nine home runs leads UNT and ranks second in the conference. Her ability to control the game from behind the plate is also pivotal. This season, Grimes has thrown out 11 runners attempting to steal a base, good enough for second in the Sun Belt. To be effective, Grimes will need to make sure pitches do not get past her, as she leads the conference with 10 passed balls.

Although she’s only hit three home runs this season, Call is considered the Owls’ power hitter. As a team, FAU has only seven home runs this season. With 18 walks and an on-base percentage of .419, Call constantly finds a way to get on base, but her fielding may be her biggest weapon. As a first baseman, she has helped start seven double plays and has a .965 fielding percentage.

Stephanie Call

Sophomore Outfielder

Senior Infielder

McCarroll is the newest addition in the field this season for the Mean Green, and she has already made her presence felt at the plate. With seven home runs this season, she joins three other UNT players as the top 10 home run hitters in the conference. Though her power numbers are among the best, she is tied for second in the conference with 30 strikeouts in 92 plate appearances.

An everyday starter for FAU, Barnes is the team’s speed demon. Along with a .327 batting average, she also has the most stolen base attempts with eight for the Owls, although she has been caught stealing three times. When hitting the ball in the gaps, her speed really becomes a weapon. Her four triples this season leads the Sun Belt Conference.

Heather Barnes

Fo u r d a y s a f t e r t h e y recorded a top-10 f i n i sh at the Texas Relays, junior hurd ler Steven W hite a nd senior distance runner Sara Dietz each received conference honors Wednesday. White received the Sun Belt Conference Men’s Athlete of the Week after becoming the f irst member of t he Mea n Green to win a Texas Relays event since 1981. He won the 400-meter hurdles event with a time of 50.53 seconds, the best time in the conference and the fourth-best time in the nation. His t ime was a lso good enough for a “B” cut for the



Olympic Trials. He will go to Eugene, Ore., in June to try to qualify for the 2012 Olympic Games. Diet z, t he SBC Women’s Athlete of the Week, finished eighth in the 1,500-meter run in 4:30.48 minutes. The time was good enough for the top time in the conference. The team will be back in action Saturday when it hosts the North Texas Spring Classic at Fouts Field, its only home meet of the season.

Mean Green Trivia After one season at UNT, Karen Aston has officially left the Mean Green, accepting the head coaching position at Texas on Tuesday. The coach’s brief stint was impressive, as UNT enjoyed a 10-game improvement in wins from last season and earned its highest win total since the 2005-2006 season. How many wins did Aston lead UNT to last season? Answer: Aston led the Mean Green to 15 wins, including a first round victory in the Sun Belt Conference Tournament against Troy.

Burmese elections a good sign for peace While the past 10 years have been defined by America’s military acting as a global police force, this week’s parliamentary election of the National League for Democracy in Myanmar (also known as Burma) over the ruling military party, known as the State Peace and Development Council, came about as a product of global sanctions on a non-democratic government. On Wednesday, in light of the election, President Obama announced that the U.S. would lift a travel ban on some of the country’s senior leaders and ease sanctions on American investments. This demonstrates a strong example of the United States’ ability to place sanctions on a country and then help facil-

itate a peaceful transition to a democratic government. Outright military rule in Myanmar ended last year when former military general Thein Sein took over as president. Since then, the outlook for a country that has been devastated by civil war since the late 1940s and military rule since 1990 has improved drastically. This week’s election marks the first free election the country has seen in 22 years. The NLD won 43 of 44 chairs it contested in the country’s parliament, and in a reassuring message to the world, President Sein said he was happy with the outcome of the election. While this is a positive step for

Myanmar, it’s important for the world to remember that Burma’s future remains unsure and that the country is still in the midst of violence. According to a New York Times report from January, this year saw the end to a 17-year cease-fire between the Kachin Army – an opposition force from Northern Burma – and the Burmese Army. Despite President Sein’s efforts to rewrite oppressive policies and commands for the army to reinstate the cease-fire, the Burmese Army continues its offensive upon the opposition fighters. Talks to reinstate the cease-fire have gone on the past few months, and hopefully the NLD’s victory will bring prog-

ress in those negotiations. The point is this; the world must not demand a democratic government, oversee the revision of some draconian laws and then turn its back to Burma while allowing a bloody civil war to continue in its northern parts. The election of President Sein and the addition of 43 NLD members in Parliament prove that sanctions and peaceful rhetoric can lead to positive change. America, the European Union and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations should continue to exert their positive influence on this impressive new government to guarantee an end to violence in Burma.


Digital interface can’t replace oldfashioned dating Dating has changed so much in just the last few years with all of our new-fangled contraptions; text messaging, Skyping and Internet dating are just a few examples of digitally enhanced courting rituals. Whatever happened to the timehonored tradition of flowers and holding a door open? Can text messaging replace face to face intimacy? Is traditional romance dead? In search of some answers, I asked a few random students on campus about what they want in the dating world today and what they feel is important to them. Kristin Parra, a 20-year-old single junior, states that the last time she received flowers was a Valentine’s Day present about two years ago. While she does not dislike flowers, she would rather be treated to a casual date than anything more formal. When speaking about the last date she went on, she says, “He picked me up [for the date] and opened the door for me each time I went in and out of the car.” She would also prefer to be contacted through text rather than on the phone when meeting with a potential suitor. Richard Wilkinson and Gerard Panther, both 21-year-old juniors, are currently in relationships. Both Wilkinson and Panther like to treat their girlfriends to flowers and feel that f lowers are necessary when they’ve “done something to make her mad.” They both prefer to talk on the phone rather than text. Lea Sarodjo, a 22-year-old senior, is a bit less orthodox when it comes to dating. She says she does not like receiving flowers because she

wants “someone to be genuinely sweet and not [get her] f lowers because someone else told them to.” Sarodjo prefers to correspond through text in the initial stages of courtship. “I think there’s something different when it comes to the phone rather than texting. Maybe just because I’m really awkward when it comes to t he phone,” Sarodio said. All in all, it seems that many women are afraid of being cliché with respect to receiving flowers and going on an old-fashioned date. You know, dinner, movie, soda pop and being walked to the front door. Men seem to genuinely enjoy giving f lowers to show that they care. Texting is OK, but so is picking up the phone if you really mean it. Being more personal and intimate upfront may shed new light where otherwise there was only darkness and confusion. Who knows, maybe you’ll feel a rare romantic spark: a spark that a computerized device simply cannot compare with.

Speaking against the war on women’s health In an attempt to push his anti-abortion agenda on all Texans, Governor Rick Perry implemented a law that bans funding from the state’s Medicaid Women’s Health Program from going to Planned Parenthood clinics, even though no federal funding is allocated towards abortions, a basic medical procedure. His decision violates federal Medicaid rules by discriminating against qualified family planning providers, thus the Department of Health and Human Services cut off Medicaid funding for family planning in Texas, a total amount of $40 million, 90 percent of the entire program’s budget. The state has now lost the entire program that serves 130,000 low-income women by providing basic health care, including cancer screenings and contraceptives. Unfortunately, this is not an isolated attack on reproductive health. With a slight glance back at 2011, one can see a long list of legislative and cultural attacks on the reproductive and sexual rights of working-class individuals and families. Often times, under the mask of “budget balancing,” politicians cut funding from programs that directly affect our health and well-being, such as public education, healthcare and environmental conservation, all the while funneling billions into imperialist wars and bank bailouts. In a system of institutionalized racism, sexism and homophobia, it is no wonder that minority communities have been hit the hardest by the economic crisis and the austerity that follows. The good news is that there is something we can do about it. If you think back to the events of 2011 once again, you will recall a growing intolerance for the bigotry and hatred coming from politicians and mainstream

cultural currents. There were movements against slut-shaming and victim blaming; Walk for Choice demanded full funding of Planned Parenthood and the right to obtain an abortion; the Occupy movement sparked discussions about exploitation and oppression, and motivated direct action in uniting the struggles of oppressed groups. And now we are continuing that fight by building a stronger movement and showing our resistance to the attacks on our livelihood. On Saturday at 2 p.m., the Radical Alliance for Gender Equality, the Feminist Majority Leadership Alliance and the International Socialist Organization are hosting a rally on the Square in response to the defunding of the Texas Medicaid Women’s Health Program. We want to invite anyone who supports reproductive justice to join us for this public speak-out, “Unite Against the War on Reproductive Healthcare.” In the spirit of building a broad grassroots movement, several local DFW activists are building in their cities for a statewide march and rally on April 28th in Austin at the Capitol.
