Airlines began to develop new baggage screening techniques at the nations' airports.

BodvSearch was a new security measure that supplemented luggage scanners and metal detectors. BodySearch used scanners, probes and sniffing mechanisms as people moved toward the plane. Another de\ice proposed was surveillance cameras that scanned faces and fed images to a computer. These pictures were examined by a database of chgital mug shots for a match. Other cameras could match iris, hand or fingerprints to each person. The biggest gain in security was the potential of smart cards. Identification cards with

memorv- chips placed in them would store personsd data and track the movements and transactions a person made. Stephanie Ewing traveled two weeks after the attacks and felt uncomfortable at the airport.

Software Skills Programming students gain experience working on valuable projects Developing programs that may eventually be used within the University and throughout the state, students enrolled in Software Engineering worked hard the fall trimester. At the conclusion of the trimester, groups presented their progress on four projects. Winter break did not guarantee a finished project and some students were forced to abandon their work, leaving it to be completed

by others.

None of the software programs developed during the fall trimester were completed. Sanders said that during the 2002-2003 school year the class would be a two-trimester sequence in order to allow students to complete their projects. "We're trying to teach students techniques for developing large software systems," Sanders said. "This takes time." One of the projects started this semester was a Missouri Home-School Record Keeping program. According to Sanders, the software would help home-school parents plan lessons and keep the records required by Missouri law. "The class was basically centered around developing this project." Emily Hart said. "It has shown me how to work in a group and the life cycle of developing software." Some software programs were developed specifically for the University; one would be used as an instructional aid

music at an early age, Wanda Medlock always felt comfortable in front of an audience. During « "grown up" party her parents were hosting, she hurst into the room, jumped unto a table, and gave her very first performance. Even at 4, she reveled in the attention she received from her spectators. "The feeling it gave me. and the connection with the audience, was the best feeling in the world for me," Medlock said. People were naturally drawn to Mcdiock's long blonde hair and perpetual smile. However, Medlock delighted in giving back for

the faces of those gathered in prayer. On All-Hallows Eve, Bethany Bottaro

congregated with other Wiccans to celebrate the coming of a new season in the utter darkness of the forest.

A pagan

religion originating in the 1890s,

Wiccans believed in the worship of many gods and goddesses. Wicca was also associated with a respect of nature and the power flowing through all living things. "I feel that paganism is a very naturebased religion," Bottaro said. "Becoming one with nature is important to me because Tve always been happy within nature." Appreciation of nature and the inclusion of female deities were what attracted Bottaro to the religion. Alhln- Eickhofl

goddess and don't think

One of the most unique aspects of Wicca was the specialization of each god or goddess. Bottaro, who had practiced the faith for over a year, said prayers were directed at different gods depending on

their nature.

Each god was also depended upi)n to help with specific spells. Magic was an important part of the religion according to Bottaro.

Bottaro had done protection spells and charged items with power. "When you charge an item, you imagine yourself putting your power into it," Bottaro said.

Magic was one of the main reasons people feared practicing Wiccans. Bottaro had

experienced the fear of many students whc were ignorant about her religion.

"When moved into the dorm this fall mj roommate was a Christian and when I tolc was pagan she decided that was i her 1

"Because of their culture, I want to know their way of thinking of others," Koyama said. "I think Americans are friendly, more friendly than the Japanese." Not only did Koyama appreciate American culture; she also appreciated the hospitality of her professors at Northwest. "The professors are so friendly," Koyama said. Unlike in the United States, students in Japan were expected to do everything they could before asking the teacher a question. The more open classroom atmosphere was appealing to Koyama. Adjusting to the cozy communit\- of Mani-Aille, Koyama felt right at home. Though the Japanese skyline was miles away, Koyama pushed forward continuing her education in America.
