“Covers the campus like the magnolias”

Award won for cleaning standards By Caitlin Brooks | Production manager

The university was recently recognized for success in their new custodial management program, Operating System I (OS1) at the national OS1 user symposium in Portland, OR. An award for Best New Cleaning Program and Green Certification for the rookie program at Calloway as well as eight Outstanding Cleaning Worker medals for university custodians crowned the first successful year of the university’s involvement with the program. OS1 is a comprehensive, the high-performance cleaning system that focuses on retraining of employees from custodial workers to managers to empower team members and promote a safe working environment. Frank Thomas, director of custodial services, has led the program since his arrival at the university last August, though plans to switch over to a new, cohesive system were in the works even before his appointment. “I think it’s fairly well known that we’ve had some issues with cleaning,” he said. “OS1 is a better way of doing business. “As I tell my staff, ‘The train has left the station and is not coming back.’” Under the new program, custodial duties are now performed at night in academic buildings and during the day in residential buildings. Uneasiness about the continuing rash of thefts from locked offices increased as faculty and staff became Thomas aware of the nightly duties, but Thomas assures community members that their possessions are actually at less risk with the new program. Custodial workers now operate in teams led by outstanding employees. These highly trained teams specialize in one of four key areas: light-duty specialists (trash collection and dusting), vacuum specialists (floors), utility specialists (hallways and recycling) and restroom specialists. The entire system is color coded for simplicity with the added bonus that customers

Here is a list of things that are absolutely disgusting: rotten food, human waste, Joan Rivers, body odor and mold. Most of these things are rather abundant and can be found pretty much anywhere you go in some form or another (minus Joan Rivers). While the university does an exceptional job of keeping students away from rotten food and human waste and the students themselves do a good job of keeping their body odor under control, why is mold the only outlier here? Apparently, mold is something that is extremely hard to keep entirely under control. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), it is estimated that over 85 percent of American households are host to at least one type of mold in an amount that borders on dangerous to the residents’ health. The residence halls at the university are no different. While the statistics of mold at the university are neither cutand-dry nor are they necessarily readily available for public knowledge, there is reason to believe that the majority of campus is suffering from mold infestations along with the

rest of America. In a survey of 50 current university students, 44 out of 50 interviewees claimed they either have mold currently or have lived with it in past years. And the residences of the interviewees did not alter the number of occurrences. Residents from Davis, Johnson, North Campus Apartments, Kitchin, Luter, Poteat, Palmer and Collins alike all said that they encountered varying amounts of mold in either their rooms or bathrooms. When asked if they thought that this school was victim to more mold than the homes that they came from, 38 said yes, nine said they couldn’t tell and three said no. The subsequent question of why would they think there is more mold here than at home was answered by the majority with general confusion. Many interesting explanations were tossed out such as “people don’t shower themselves as much in college as they did in high school,” “the damp weather patterns of this area,” “magic” and “it is just gross here.” On the whole, no one could give a reason as to why the university’s residence halls seem to be considerably

University launches new and improved website University website revamped in efforts to increase accessability By Ken Meyer | Asst. news editor

Ken Meyer/Old Gold & Black

The Office of Communications and External Relations has given the home page of the university website a new face. news organizations to a list of faculty members who can speak to university specific issues from academics to race. A new page entitled Inside WFU has been created to allow members of the campus community to have their own stories posted. Open to all visitors, this page caters to faculty and staff. Associate Vice President for CER Pamela Dumas Serfes cited the potential of this page to become a new

community newspaper but warned, however, that “this site can only be as good as those post to it.” The Provost’s site has been given a new face; the page for the Office of the President office has been improved; the Career Services site sits entirely new. Dumas Serfes describes these sites as “Phase One” of an initiative to redesign the entirety community of university websites. When Dumas Serfes joined CER a little over a year ago, the website

House set to pass bill aimed at Chinese Yen The House of Representatives began debate on legislation to put pressure on China to let its currency rise faster, fanning the flames of a long-running dispute over trade and jobs. The bill, expected to be passed on Sept. 30 with heavy support from Democrats but a mixed reaction from Republicans, treats China’s exchange rate as a subsidy. That would open the door to extra duties on Chinese goods entering the United States, some of which are already subject to special levies.

Indonesia lifts tsunami warning after 7.2 quake A local tsunami alert was issued and later lifted after a magnitude 7.2 quake struck off Papua, eastern Indonesia early on Sept. 23. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) reported a strong 6.6 tremor followed by the stronger second quake, which hit at 2:11 a.m. on Sept. 23. An official at the Indonesian meteorological agency said there were no reports of damage or of a tsunami.

The Office of Communications and Exernational Relations (CER) officially released its renewed, revamped and redesigned websites as of Sept. 29. The new websites include both new iterations of previously functioning addresses as well as entirely new addresses. Each page is designed to meet specific needs. The home page changed to meet the needs of its most frequent guests. Three blocks at the top provide a three-tiered list of links, each catering to separate needs. The first lists sites by frequent visitors; the second guides visitors to administrative needs; the third offers the most visited pages.

team was swamped with a growing list of requests for everything from new or changed websites to a social media site. “There were too many requests for our team to handle with our limited staff,” Dumas Serfes said. At that point, Dumas Serfes, in concert with the web team, began a conversation with Information Systems (IS), Associate Provost for Technology and IS Rich Matthews and Provost Jill Tiefenthaler about changing the university websites. IS aided the team in the creation of a new content management system which allows individual faculty members, staff members or university groups to alter their own webpages from their laptops without sending a request to CER. This content management system launched with the formal launch of these websites, and the web team will soon begin teaching individuals to use the system themselves. Tiefenthaler guided the web team to pinpoint specific websites for the web team to revamp. Tiefenthaler and the team chose websites which would help guide the university towards the furtherance of its strategic plan. Dumas Serfes explained how the work done over the past year on these

Error by state puts jobless in stressful situation The stress of unemployment has gotten a lot worse for people who are finding out that they may lose some money because of a state error. The Employment Security Commission of North Carolina made about $28 million in overpayments to jobless state residents over the last two years, the Raleigh News & Observer reported. Last week, the newspaper said, the agency began sending letters to about 38,000 people who were either overpaid or underpaid through no fault of their own.

Study said e-books may spur more kids to read The amount of time children spend reading books for enjoyment decreases as they use cell phones and other mobile technology, but e-books might just bring them back to literature, according to a report released on Sept. 28. About 40 percent of parents believed that time spent online or on mobile devices would reduce time for books or engaging in physical activities. However, the study found that technology might actually encourage a child to read. Of the kids polled in the study, 57 percent said they would be interested in reading an e-book.

Haiti film screening touches on more than quake By McKenna Begin| Staff writer

A double bed in a cramped room serves as both a sleeping station and desk. Napkins covered with scribbles of numbers and figures are taped to the wall. There is a singular silver laptop. This is the reality of Planting Peace, a small Haiti-based organization that seeks to distribute deworming medicine to Haitian children and thereby give hope for the future. Bound by Haiti, screened on Tuesday as the first for four in WFU’s new Documentary Film Program, centers on this organization. Planting Peace was started by Aaron Jackson and John Dieubon, two friends who come from opposite backgrounds.Aaron grew up on a resort in Florida while John was born and

orphaned in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. It started as a simple project funded out of Aaron’s pocket for the first two years. Aaron, now 26, asked why all the children in Haiti had such big bellies, and the answer changed his life. These kids, infested with intestinal worms, seem to have no hope from the start. Now Planting Peace not only provides deworming medicine, but it also builds schools, funds orphanages and supports the Clean World Movement. Filmmakers Jon Bougher and Roman Safiullin, two University of Florida graduates, skillfully use the frame story of Aaron and John’s project to show the reality of Haiti. They film a mother of two who completed second grade as John speaks to her in French about her life.

When he acknowledges how sad her The filmmakers focus on a Haitian reality is, the woman simply replies, woman singing praises to the sky. “That’s life.” Hallelujahs sound.

from can’t affect your destiny.” Even though nothing is normal, he says, you must continue to fight. The documentary was a fabulous and moving beginning for the Documentary Film Program, which is new to Wake Forest after moving, with most of its students, from the University of Florida. Cara Pilson, one of the program’s coassociate directors along with Cindy Hill, says that the title of this documentary can resonate with almost everyone. “I think John and Roman (the filmmakers) will be forever bound by Haiti both by their camera work and by the tragedies they witnessed.” The goal, as envisioned by John and Aaron, is “to start a new country with a new vision,” Dieubon said. Bound by Haiti is an unforgettable story of hope.

Expert lectures on crisis Mold: Students live and breathe in molding rooms

Laurence Ball, an economic professor from Johns Hopkins University, explains the financial crisis, a concept that is complex for many Americans. By Hillary Burns | Contributing writer Laurence Ball spoke about the financial crisis and its aftermath at 6 p.m. on Sept. 27 in the Annenburg Forum, in the lobby of Carswell Hall. Ball is currently a Professor of Economics at Johns Hopkins University and received a PhD in Economics from MIT. Ball discussed the United States’ financial crisis as he revealed the depths of the most serious recession since the Great Depression. He began by addressing the US’s financial history since 1970 when the country was in doubledigit inflation. Through the ‘80s there were two recessions and unemployment reached 10.8 percent. Ball said, over time, the ‘70s and ‘80s were considered the bad times as the economy improved in the late ‘80s. 1985-2007 is considered the “Great Moderation” as inflation and unemployment rates were low and the economy remained stable. “I am going to tell the story of the financial crisis—at least how I understand it,” Ball said. “I sketched out a graph in 2004 when I had no idea there would be a financial crisis—the point is, in broad terms I actually did not have to change much because the two hallmarks of the financial crisis are: decreased asset prices and troubled financial institutions,” Ball said. Ball pointed out that while some politicians believe this financial situation was inevitable he believes it could have been avoided. In 2007 the stock market fell 55% as prestigious institutions failed and a severe credit crunch occurred. House prices rose 71 percent from 2002 to 2006, which caused low interest rates and the use of subprime mortgages to grow immensely. Subprime mortgages are essentially mortgage loans for people with low-credit scores to buy homes. Ball said, “few anticipated a major decline in housing prices,” which proved to be a sign trouble was coming. From 2006 to 2009 house prices fell 33 percent

as finance companies specializing in subprime mortgages went bankrupt. By 2008 investment banks suffered heavy losses on mortgage backed securities. That March the federal government lent 29 billion dollars to J.P. Morgan Chase in order for the bank to acquire Bear Stearns and prevent bankruptcy. Ball said this was an extremely controversial issue and “when a disaster occurs the very pessimistic people look like geniuses.” Some technical difficulties lightened the atmosphere as Ball tried to zoom in on charts he created, “when I lecture at John Hopkins, I use chalk,” Ball said. Sept. 2008 was a disaster as Barclays (which is a UK-based provider of retail and commercial banking, credit cards, investment banking, wealth management, and investment management services according to www.allbusiness. com) took over Lehman Brothers Holdings, Inc., which is a US-based financial services company according to The government then took over Frannie Mae and Freddie Mac and lent 85 billion dollars to one of the massive insurers—American International Group. This series of events caused panic as unemployment reached 10.1 percent in Dec. 2009. Ball said if the prestigious institution of Lehman Brothers could fail anyone could—everyone anxiously waited to see whom the next domino to fall would be. Ball offered ways the government could improve our financial situation. He said that history shows the economy will not fix it self, the government must help. “Generally I think the more fiscal stimulus the better,” Ball said. He said the government should hire many people and encourage banks to lend more. “Congress and the federal reserve ought to be more active in defeating unemployment,” said Ball. While our economy is growing, unemployment rates seem to be at a stand still. “I don’t have a happy ending for this story—we are stuck in a low status quo,” Ball said.

Mold is very common across the United States but can lead to serious health defects if a person is exposed to it for prolonged periods of time. Continued from Page A1 moldier than other residences. The people who confessed in the interview to having experienced mold in their time on campus were then asked how they responded to the discovery. Twenty-seven said they contacted Facilities Management, 18 said they did nothing and five said they cleaned it on their own. Nearly half of the residents who said that they contacted Facilities Management about their discovery of mold said that Facilities Management was “slow to respond.” Many said that their complaints weren’t answered for several weeks and sometimes up to months. Furthermore, many confessed to having reported that they were suffering inexplicable coughs and mucus buildups to Facilities Management and receiving little to no response. At the same time, the other half of the residents who contacted Facilities Management said that they were satisfied with the care that they received. “They were at my door within two hours after I called them,” sophomore and Davis resident Margie Robinson said. Lambda Chi Alpha president and Davis resident Allan Burton was willing to share the mold experiences he and his fraternity had. “The only mold we have encountered was centrally located in one of

the bathrooms of our lounge and was cleaned up the same day the lounge opened at the beginning of the school year,” Burton said. “The molds formed over the summer as a result of moisture build up in a bathroom with a leak. As a precaution, the entire chapter lounge as well as the halls and bedrooms were inspected by facilities.” “In regards to the attention we have received from facilities management, they have done a great job keeping us informed as well as attending to any problems we have had,” Burton continued. Whether the mold was removed by Facilities Management or their own elbow grease, 34 of the interviewees said that the mold returned within three months after they tried to rid themselves of it, and all expressed frustration that the mold made a recurrence. This raises the question: why do so many university students feel that they are being plagued by mold? Overall, students express some distress over the presence of mold in their rooms and their bathrooms. “It is similar to bed bugs or swine flu in some ways. If it isn’t handled it can easily get out of control,” sophomore Sara Gonzales said. Next week, we will delve into the administrative side of this moldy topic and hear from them what they have done and are doing about mold.

Students should have respect in class


hile we understand that it is annoying when class runs over the designated time, we get even more annoyed when students think it is acceptable to start packing up before the professor is done talking. It is one thing when the class is running ten minutes over and you need to get somewhere else. However, when the class runs just a couple minutes overtime, it is disrespectful to pack up before the class is officially over. It is also detrimental to the other students in the class who want to hear the professor's final remarks. Often, these remarks are crucial to the class. The professor may be giving a homework assignment or explaining what is going to be on the midterm.

We (or, most likely, our parents) pay a considerable amount of money for us to attend the university. We should want to stay to the very end of every class. Granted, sometimes we may skip class, but, if we are there, it makes sense for us to want to stay until the end. The worst type of student starts getting ready to make an exit before the class is even over. These students are mentally counting down to the 48 minute mark in a 50 minute class, so they can "quietly" (but often really loudly) beian to slide papers into their folders and shut textbooks. The professors that teach our classes are some of the best professors in the country. Let's show them some respect and listen to everything they have to teach us.

PLC conference encouraged leaders


he President's leadership conference, which took place Sept. 23-25, was considered a huge success for the leaders on campus who attended the event. The conference is an example of a series of intitiatives that the administration is conducting to increase transparency between them and the student body. The weekend focused on a campus-wide initiative to encourage students to live balanced lives. This entails not only attending fraternity parties, but also going to some on-campus lectures. Going to lectures is an exciting privilege of going to

a university. Students should strive to make the most of university resources during the short time they are here. The conference also addressed the importance of being a Wake Forest student first and a member of your student organization next. Our school is small enough where we should all feel as if we are a part of a large family. Leaders should lead by example and encourage the members of their student organizations to be active in the university community at large. We feel that this is an important initiative, and we hope that the leaders on campus will take this message to heart.

Birthdays lose significance as we grow older

Turning 21 means entering adulthood and having responsibility

Hamlin Wade Staff columnist


irthdays. In the factuality of life, they’re just another day out of every year. We wake up just like we always do. We brush our teeth the same way and the world continues to spin, marking the regularity of the event, be it Tuesday, Wednesday or even Saturday. But, in actuality, a birthday is anything but normal. It’s the one day out of the year where we are able to kick back and be pampered without being insulted

behind our backs. It’s the one day of the year where our moms or dads make us our favorite meal and shower us with attention. Ever since we were young, we have had parties, often with a princess or Batman theme. As we matured, our parties followed suit, gravitating towards quiet dinners with friends and family, centered on conversation instead of gifts. Today, I find myself at a threshold. I stand at an impetus between the world of celebrating birthdays and the dawn of adulthood. From here on out, birthdays are no longer celebratory occasions. From here on, I’ll be spending time trying to convince people that I am in fact younger than I actually am. I’ll save parties for the “big” and monumental birthdays.

Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty, who was on McCain’s short list to be VP, is also almost certain to run.

Presidential election will hopefully include a worthy Republican nominee

I’ll arbitrarily make it the 70th birthday, a time when we realize how awesome it is to be old and we take full advantage. We’ll use our wealth of knowledge and increased cynicism to demand parties and praise, getting pats on the back and newspaper articles about how long we have lived. Birthdays are a tricky business. We spend half our lives excited for them and the other half running away in fear. But, nonetheless, they are inevitable. If we plan to live, we must plan to get older. We’ve yet to discover that fountain of youth and we have yet to learn how to avoid the process of aging. So until we do, I plan to embracing it. I’ll appreciate the aching bones and the tired back. I’ll proudly sip on my prune juice and talk about the good ol’ days. No matter whom the challenger, I’ll plan to compete. After all, it wasn’t long ago that I was young and spry just like you.

University’s GSSA group Website: WFU page is takes part in Pride Parade now more user friendly Continued from Page A1

specific websites was introduced in a soft launch over the last two weeks. During that launch, the web team listened to suggestions from the university community and used that information to improve the website before the formal launch. Dumas Serfes was quick to note however that “more iterations are coming.” More websites will be changed over the coming weeks and months and launched accordingly. A new site entitled Wake Alert — for example — is being designed to respond to campus emergencies by advising the entire campus on the university’s response.

Members of the university’s GSSA marched in a Pride Parade at Duke University to promote important but rarely discussed issues that surround the LGBT community. By SheRea DelSol | Staff writer Early on Sept. 25 nine members of the university’s Gay Straight Student Alliance (GSSA) left the bubble and carpooled to Durham for North Carolina Pride. N.C. Pride serves to celebrate the victories and accomplishments of the LGBT community, while still advocating for continued effort to provide equality and the creation of legislation to better their daily lives. Alice in Wonderland, tye dye, drag queens and kings, witty T-shirts, and other themes and miscellaneous items could be used to describe this event. People of various age groups, races, ethnicities and social classes packed the festival grounds on Duke University’s campus and filled the surrounding streets with flamboyant colors of purple, red, orange, yellow, green and blue. These colors were all tied together in the rainbow flag, the symbol that has grown to represent LGBT persons and their alliances. The parade included many floats including a

float by Lowe’s Foods. The university’s presence was indeed impactful as the students paraded with a vibrant yellow banner that read “Wake Forest GLBTerrific.” The students were also decked out in new T-shirts that fashioned the Demon Deacon with a rainbow top hat and the name “Wake Forest University GSSA” across the front. The students themselves had cheers of their own. One could hear them proudly chanting, “WFU, GSSA, N.C. Pride and we’re here to stay.” Many other universities and groups came out such as Meredith College, North Carolina Central University and Equality N.C. Some signs generated laughter, while others made one think. Signs that were cited from religious scriptures fully refuted the hate that is sometimes exuded from some members in the religious community. Sophomore Dajarae Bacote, a veteran member and the social chair of the organization stated, “Pride is a great event, not just for the LGBT com-

munity. Everyone has something to benefit from the event which ranges from learning about new things in the culture to free entertainment.” She also said, “It is a chance for everyone to come together and interact as well as to promote important issues such as HIV/AIDS testing.” Shannon D. Gilreath, a university alumnus and Fellow Law was the event’s main speaker. GSSA members ultimately left Duke’s campus with a sense of unity and family who are in the fight together to stop hatred, discrimination and ignorance. The organization hopes to continue to plan activities and events to advocate and raise LGBT issues as well as awareness of the group in the school and the surrounding area. They meet every Wednesday at 8 p.m. in Benson 218 and meetings include discussions on LGBT related issues, movie and game nights, and off-campus activities. GSSA also partners with other organizations and departments for various events.

Dumas Serfes highlighted both the necessity of that website and the possibilities for it by pointing to the website of the University of Texas at Austin and its response to the campus shooter there on Sept. 28. She further highlighted how the web team is working hard to meet the needs of all university faculty, staff and groups. The team looks forward to working with the community on the content management system and on further improvements to the university webpages. “We really value and welcome input from the community as we move forward with these changes,” Dumas Serfes said.

Wake drops another to Florida State By Bobby O’Connor | Sports editor

Florida State Wake Forest

31 0

The Deacons suffered their second consecutive road loss at the hands of Christian Ponder and the Flordia State team. The Seminoles defeated Wake 31-0 at Doak Campbell Stadium on Sept. 25 for the first time since 2005 in Tallahassee, Fla. The Deacs falls to 2-2 on the season and 1-1 in the Atlantic Coast Conference. Florida State improves to 3-1, 1-0 in the ACC. It was the first time that the Deacons had been shut out since falling 26-0 at Maryland in 2008. “Obviously, when you win, you gain confidence. That’s just the way it is. I don’t know many teams that build confidence off of losing,” Head Coach Jim Grobe said. “It’s important for us not only to play well, but we need to win a football game.” Wake Forest had its two-game winning streak over Florida State at Doak Campbell Stadium snapped. The Deacs are now 5-23-1 all-time against FSU. The teams played through a scoreless first quarter before the Seminoles took a 7-0 lead with a touchdown early in the second quarter and a field goal just before the half, making it 10-0.

“We’ve just go to keep working. They keep telling us that we can’t give up now,” junior offensive lineman Michael Hoag said. “It’s only four games into the season. We’ve still got eight more, and for all we know we could go 10-2. We’ve just got to keep working hard, keep doing what we’ve been doing, and eventually the ball’s going to roll our way.” Ponder would throw for 243 yards and two touchdowns. In addition, Jermaine Thomas rushed for 88 yards and Taiwan Easterling caught six passes for 112 yards. Willie Haulsted caught two touchdown passes for Florida State. The Deacons only had 185 total offensive yards, compared to the Seminoles’s 485. In addition, Wake only had 12 first downs during the game, while FSU had 28. “This week we’re trying to focus on Georgia Tech and forget Florida State. We didn’t play very well and Florida State played well,” senior linebacker Lee Malchow said. “We’re just going to try to do our job this week and do what the coaches tell us to do.” Freshman quarterback Tanner Price completed 6 of 12 passes for a total of 35 yards before leaving the game with an injury. Junior Ted Stachitas went 5-of-5 passing for 47 yards in relief. “I don’t know right now. The thing with head injuries is that they are

Alberto Contador, Tour de France winner, tests positive

Tour de France winner Alberto Contador plans to hold a news conference Sept. 30 to address reports of a positive doping drug test, his publicist said in a statement according to ESPN. Contador, 27, who won the Tour de France for the third time this year, apparently tested positive for bronchodilator clenbuterol during drug tests conducted on the final day of this year’s race. Contador plans to attest the positive test and has put together a group of experts who will say the positive test is a result of “food contamination.” Clenbuterol is a synthetic bronchodilator often prescribed to asthma sufferers. The drug is on the World Anti-Doping Agency’s banned substances list and its use would mean a two-year ban from the sport.

By Hamlin Wade | Staff writer The Wake Forest Homecoming weekend gets started with a bang this year as we welcome former college basketball star and current ESPN basketball analyst Jay Bilas to campus at 6 p.m. on Oct. 7. Bilas’s visit will be broken into two parts: a speech in Brendle Recital Hall and a roundtable conversation with President Nathan Hatch and Athletic Director Ron Wellman. Last week, I had the opportunity to talk with Bilas and ask him a few questions about his visit. Leading up to our conversation, I had very little knowledge of what Bilas planned to discuss when on campus. A graduate of Duke University and the husband of a Wake Forest Schools of Business graduate, Bilas is no stranger to our campus or community. That being said, the university is excited to have Bilas on campus and is giving him the freedom to dictate his conversation. Bilas says he plans to discuss the current state of college athletics. The biggest question he plans to pose is “Why is amateurism still a bedrock principle in college basketball today?” Bilas sees a rising problem in college athletics to be amateurism, as more players are being found in violation of NCAA code. Many of these violations result in players becoming ineligible for their respective seasons.

Jeter just plays the game By Bronwen Gainsford Contributing writer

One of the hot topics lately in the sports world has been Derek Jeter’s so called acting performance against the Tampa Bay Rays on Sept 15. During the game between the Rays and the New York Yankees, Jeter was walked to first base because the umpires said that he was hit by the ball. In the replay of the pitch, the ball clearly hit the knob on his bat, not Derek Jeter’s elbow or hand. The call was contested by the Ray’s manager, Joe Maddon, who was ejected from the game because of his argument with the umpires over the controversial call. The call is being debated because there is a question of whether or not Jeter was cheating by allowing the umpires to believe he was hit by the ball, when after the game, Jeter admitted to not being hit by the ball. In my opinion, Jeter was just playing the game. The question shouldn’t be whether or not Jeter cheated; it should be whether or not the umpires made

South Carolina 1 Wake Forest 0 Sophomore Andy Lubahn sealed the deal with a late goal for the Demon Deacons on Sep. 25 as they defeated cross-town opponent UNCG 2-1. The match was played at UNCG Soccer Stadium and saw the largest men’s soccer crowd there since 1991, but it was the Wake Forest fans that went home happy as the Deacons handed the Spartans their first home loss of the season. The victory marked the first out-of-conference win for the Deacs this season. UNCG asserted themselves early on offense by taking five shots within the first 20 minutes of play, three of which had to be saved by Deacon senior Akira Fitzgerald. The Deacons were able to get their first shot on goal in the 20th minute when Chris Duvall’s shot was stopped by UNCG sophomore Peyton Ford.

Then in the 40th minute, a foul inside the box resulted in two yellow cards on UNCG and rewarded the Deacons with a penalty kick. Freshman Luca Gimenez took the kick and capitalized on the opportunity putting the ball in the right side of the net as UNCG’s goalkeeper guessed wrong and dove to the left. “We practice that a lot so I just went out there and did what I was supposed to do,” Gimenez said. The goal gave Wake Forest a 1-0 lead that remained up until halftime. Despite the Spartans taking 12 shots in the half, double that of the Deacons, Wake Forest held the lead thanks in large part to eight saves by Deac goalie Akira Fitzgerald. In the 63rd minute of the contest, UNCG got on the board. Following a Wake Forest foul, the Spartans were awarded a penalty kick. Mimicking Gimenez’s earlier goal, Spartan junior Will Mack aimed his shot to the right and was successful as Fitzgerald incorectly guessed and lunged to the left.

The goal tied the game at one and gave the Spartans new life. However, leading goal score Lubahn, provided some late game excitement. Lubahn took an excellent pass from Gimenez in the 81st minute and found himself in front of the net. The goalkeeper was unable to come to the ball as he had been following Gimenez. Lubahn was able to tap the ball into the back of the net giving the Deacons a late 2-1 lead. The goal was Lubahn’s third of the season and the assist was the first of Gimenez’s career. Subsequently, the Deacons held off the Spartans en route to a much needed victory. Fitzgerald played an excellent game in the goal, finishing with eight saves and earning the victory over the Spartans. “Akira Fitzgerald did a tremendous job with keeping us in the game,” Head Coach Jay Vidovich said. “Our goal at the end there was a tribute to the guys. They played some very good soccer and it was a great Wake Forest soccer goal.”

Anthony Arena

John Turner/Old Gold & Black Graphic by Bobby O’Connor/Old Gold & Black

By Matt Poppe | Staff writer A consistently outstanding player, sophomore Anthony Arena, from Kenmore, Wash., is in the midst of his second season as a member of the men’s soccer team. Arena won eight straight state championships with his club team, Crossfire, prior to his time at Wake Forest. Arena has started every game of his career to this point for the Deacons. His freshman year was highlighted by three gamewinning goals and being selected to the All-ACC Freshman team. Arena is second on the team this season with two goals so far and looks to help the squad reach a fifth consecutive Final Four. When did you first start playing soccer? I first started playing around the age of six. I started out playing recreation soccer for two years. Then I tried out for a select team when I was eight and ended up playing two years up. Your dad played football at UNLV and your grandfather played football at Notre Dame. Was there ever a push for you to play football when you were younger? Yeah, definitely. It wasn’t as much of a push to play, but my dad was happy with what I did, either football or something else. I played football

for a little bit when I was younger and kind of took to soccer a little bit after. Soccer just came more naturally, came a little bit easier to me, than football did. At that point I kind of stayed with one sport. You played for your high school football team however. Did you ever think about trying to pursue that as a career? I kicked my junior and senior year and it went pretty well. A bunch of my buddies played football as well so it was good to be out there. I played a little receiver senior year but I was really trying not to get hurt before I came here. I never really looked to pursue football. Why did you choose to come to Wake Forest? I chose to come to Wake because of the academics first of all. I mean it’s a great school academically. Second of all, the soccer program is consistently one of the best in the country, year in and year out. I thought it would also be the best opportunity for me to pursue soccer after college. Which person has had the biggest impact on your life? My parents definitely have had a big impact. They’ve allowed me the opportunity to play soccer and play throughout my life. They’ve understood the sacrifices I’ve given up and they have been

there for me. The coaches I’ve had as well have been a big part. My club coach growing up, Bernie James, and the coaching staff here have allowed me to progress as a player. What was it like to score your first collegiate goal against Harvard last season? It felt good. It was kind of a relief. I mean last year against Harvard, it wasn’t really a clean goal I guess you could say. It was kind of questionable whether it was mine or not, so I think the one game-winner last year against College of Charleston felt really good. What would you say is the hardest thing to do in soccer? Fitness comes into play a little bit. You always have to be ready to last 90 or 120 minutes you know with overtime. You also have to stay focused the whole match. It’s not as much something hard as much as it is something you have to do. Do you have any pre-game rituals? I always take my cross off in the locker room and I kiss it before I come out. Do you have a favorite soccer player that you look up to or try to mimic? My favorite soccer player is probably (Gerard) Piqué. He is a Barcelona center back and a young

guy that does real well. I like watching him, especially YouTube videos and things like that. If you were unable to play soccer, what career would you pursue? Now that I have been in college, more and more I’ve looked into psychology and dealing with that. I think I might major in that so I would probably say a psychologist. If you had to characterize yourself in one word, what would it be? I would say leader. People I hope would use that to describe me and that’s how I see myself. What has been your favorite moment so far in your soccer career? My favorite moment so far was probably clinching a trip to the Final Four last year on our home field last year against UCLA. Being from the West Coast, I had looked at going there a little bit. It really felt good to beat a team from the West Coast out here and make it to the fourth straight Final Four for the program. What are your personal goals for this season? Just to have a good season and help the team in any way I can. Personal goals just lead to collective goals as a team. I want the best for the team and get this season on the right track.

The No. 8 Wake Forest Field Hockey team fell 5-3 to No. 2 Maryland on Sept. 25 in a strong ACC matchup and was then surprisingly defeated by No. 18 Stanford on Sept. 27. During the first half of the Sept. 25 game, Wake keeper sophomore Kaitlyn Ruhf kept on her toes with four saves in the opening 15 minutes. Terrapin Kirstie Dennig’s goal off of a penalty corner at 28:19 was quickly answered by Deacon sophomore Lizzie Rae who scored her seventh goal of the season with a strong shot from the top of the circle. The intensity continued when Maryland’s Jemma Buckley navigated from the 25-yard line and beat out the Wake defense to score. Despite the presentation of an offensive penalty corner with 30 seconds left of play in the first half, the Deacons failed to deliver. “The game against Maryland was really our preparation for the game against Stanford, however we did have Sunday to go over a few of Standford’s tendencies,” junior Adelaide Knott said. Trailing into the second quarter 2-1, the Deacons were focused on maintaining a strong defense. Within the first seven minutes of the game, Ruhf made five impressive saves. At 46:49, freshman Kari Walkley scored her fourth goal of the season with an assist by freshman Jess McFayden to tie the game. The Terrapins were eager to regain the lead, and forward Hayley Turner sent a one touch pass to Jill Witmer who was open in the circle. Witmer followed up with another goal a minute later off of a quick midfield transition. Ready to retaliate, the Deacons utilized a penalty corner in which

junior Faith Adams and junior Lauren Greenwald assisted senior Liza Casella with her second goal of the season. Less than four minutes later, Maryland forward Katie O’Donnell scored the fifth and final goal of the game. Wake’s Ruhf clocked 70 minutes of play and reached a season-high record of 10 saves, while Maryland took a total of 28 shots with nine penalty corner opportunities. On the rainy game against Stanford, the Deacons took an early lead in the first two minutes when a shot from Knott reflected off of the stick of a Cardinal defender and into the cage. The momentum continued when Knott sent a beautiful cross pass from the left freshman Taylor Rhea who scored her third goal of the season at 8:37. While the Cardinals originally struggled to rally, Emily Henriksson scored her second goal of the season to initiate a comeback for Stanford. At 33:21, the game was tied when Stanford’s Camille Gandhi received a cross pass after a penalty corner. “As a team we are working towards getting ourselves in a stronger position going into the ACC Tournament so we can have a championship under our belt again,” Knott said. Heading into the second half, Cardinal forward Katie Mitchell beat out Ruhf in a chaotic 1-on-1 in front of the cage to lead Stanford 3-2. The victory was sealed at 53:42 when forward Alysha Sekhon sent a cross to the front of the cage to teammate Stephanie Byrne to end the game with a 5-3 victory. Stanford dominated with 18 shots and 13 shots on goal, while Wake Forest only had seven shots with one on cage by freshman Molly Murphy. The Demon Deacons now hold a 6-4 record with a 1-1 record in ACC play. The squad will have yet another busy weekend starting on Oct. 2 in which they will travel to Chapel Hill to take on the undefeated Tar Heels at 1 p.m. On Sunday, Oct. 3, the Deacons will play California in Kentner Stadium at 1 p.m.

Men’s golf finishes second at VCU Shootout By Steven Johns | Staff writer

After a thrilling three-team finish at the VCU Shootout, Wake Forest emerged with another second place finish on the early season. Starting 10 shots back in the final round, the Deacs were able to put together a 1-over 289 to finish just one shot behind UNC Wilmington Sept. 25. “They’re closers,” Head Coach Jerry Haas said. “We went from kind of fifth/sixth the first week to end up second. And this week we were kind of third and kind of worked our way and probably, honestly, should have won the tournament.” “That’s what I like to see, (the players) are moving the right way,” Haas said. “It’s not like they were up there (at the top of the leaderboard) and then they fade Beck to seventh or something. They’re going the right way.” Led by sophomore Evan Beck, the Demon Deacons rallied on the back nine of the final round to tie UNCW. However, late bogies dropped the Deacs behind UNCW and eventually led to the second place finish. “Quite honestly we did not putt very well up there (at VCU),” Haas said. “If we putted, we could have won the tournament by 10 or 15 shots, I feel like.” “I saw a lot of good golf and a lot of missed putts.” But that’s ok because if you keep hitting it good, you’ll make those putts and have a really special week.”

Pressbox: Bad calls part of the game

Not only did the Demon Deacons have to battle against the likes of UNCW and East Carolina University, but Wake Forest also had to battle the tough playing conditions. Haas said that the soft, but quick, greens became bumpy after 36 holes of rain-soaked golf. The difficult conditions made normally easy 3-foot putts a challenge, said Haas. ECU also was able to tie for first at halfway, but a poor closing left the Pirates in third place. After finishing in second place at the Carpet Capital Collegiate Classic, the Deacs again found themselves just off the top of the leaderboard. “You’ve got to do good things at the end to win,” Haas said. “We did some good things and some not so good things.” “I think (the players) are probably not happy that they finished second, they shouldn’t be,” Haas said. “But you want to get right back in there and say ‘we’ve been close, let’s get one this week.’” Beck finished in third after recording three rounds under par. He finished at 5-under par for the tournament. Junior Lee Bedford also finished the tournament at 1-under par, in a tie for seventh. Coming off his second career victory, Bedford started off the tournament slowly, but rebounded in the final round by shooting a 2-under 70. While Beck and Bedford each notched a top-10 finish, the rest of the Wake Forest golfers played well, each finishing the tournament in the top 50. Wake Forest gets right back to the tee box Monday as it heads up to Raleigh to compete in the N.C. State Wolfpack Fall Intercollegiate. “This will be a tough week that’s coming up because we’ve kind of got a short week, but I think come Monday they’ll be ready to play” Haas said.

the call. Also, this is a reason for the baseball community to debate whether or not instant replay should be incorporated into Major League Baseball games, to help aid the umpires in making the correct calls. I find it alarming that we put emphasis on Jeter, himself, instead of the umpires ejecting a manager from the game who clearly saw what happened. In every game played, whether it is soccer, basketball, field hockey, football or baseball, wrong and incorrect calls are made and players benefit and are hurt from what the umpires or refs though they saw and called, not always what actually occurred. If a referee blows their whistle in a game because they think a foul has been committed, the so-called injured party makes a concerted effort, or act, to make the referee believe that what they saw actually did happen. When was the last time you saw an athlete in any sport tell the referee or umpire that in fact they were not fouled and that they didn’t want the penalty? Part of playing the game is to capitalize on errors, whether it is your opponent’s errors or the umpire’s errors, and playing off these calls regardless of accuracy. If the umpire or the referee makes a wrong call, it is part of the athlete’s job to sell the call to the referee and not let the umpire or referee change their call. For example, this idea is seen in soccer games where athletes will take a dive to get the possible penalty call. Most, if not all, coaches preach the phrase, “Play to the whistle.” “Play to the whistle,” indicates that the umpires or referees sometimes won’t see the foul and you either capitalize on the error, when called, or you hustle try and win the ball back. Derek Jeter was doing his job on Sept. 22. He made sure that he got the penalty call and that was his focus. The umpires used what they thought they saw to make the call. In my opinion, Jeter played the game as it is suppose to be played and how acted just as any other player would have. And I’m sure a controversial call like this will happen again in baseball; it has happened before. Thus, what we should take away from the situation is the question of how can we help umpires and referees make the right calls consistently and more often. Will instant replay really benefit the game of baseball?

The past week has been a good one for the Lady Deacons as they opened their ACC play 2-0 for the first time since their 2001 season. The freshman tandem of Rachel Nuzzolese and Katie Stengel were named National Co-Players of the Week by The duo are tied for the ACC lead, having scored nine goals apiece, while ranking second and third respectively in the ACC in points. The accolades aren’t the first for either player as Stengel was named ACC Player of the Week earlier in the month. In addition, both players were named to the ACC/SEC Challenge All-Tournament Team earlier in the year. The week began well for the Deacs as they upset 14th ranked Duke on the road for their first victory in Durham in school history. Leading the way was Nuzzolese, who notched two goals off of set pieces while goalie Aubrey Bledsoe recorded three saves per year leading Wake to a 2-1 victory.

“She really commits to tackling and doing the dirty work that needs to be done to enable us to win, there’s never a moment hesitation from her.” To open the second half it was once again Luckhurst who helped get Wake on the board as her header made contact with a defenders hand in the box and Stengel was able to bury the ensuing penalty kick. Stengel wasn’t done yet as she managed to find the back of the net again in the 65th minute giving her six points on the day, the most for a Wake player since 2008. Every available player saw some action for the Deacons as Bledsoe and Amanda Barasha split time in goal while multiple freshmen were able to experience ACC play for the first time in their careers. Coach da Luz was happy to get all of his players some involvement in the game. “(It’s) great for morale and the intensity of the game never slipped,” da Luz said. Next up for the Lady Deacons are the 13th ranked Seminoles of Florida State in Tallahassee, Sept. 30. Coach da Luz and the rest of the team realize that Florida State is an extremely talented team, however, “we haven’t lost a road game yet and when we go on the road we tend to be successful.”

day-to-day things,” Grobe said about Price’s injuries. “He took a pretty significant hit in our last game and was a little goofy on the sideline. I don’t know whether or not they will give him the green light by Saturday.” “As far as I know, he didn’t practice yesterday because of his concussion, that’s what I’ve been told. I don’t know what his situation is, but hopefully he’ll be back,” Hoag said. “If not, we’ve got confidence in Ted (Stachitas) and our other guys to do what we need to do to win, so we’ll be fine . . .They’re both great quarterbacks, so whichever guy we have in there we’re going to be fine.” Junior Kyle Wilber continued his strong start to the 2010 season, finishing the game with a career-high 11 tackles, including three tackles for loss and two sacks. Wilber, who entered the game leading the nation in tackles for loss, now has 11 tackles for loss on the season and five quarterback sacks. Wilber also forced a fumble in the contest, his second forced fumble of the season. “That was the really disappointing thing Saturday. I thought defensively, especially in the first half, we played well enough to keep us in the game and to give us a chance. Coming out in the second half, I really expected the offense to step up a little bit, but we were never able to do that. Grobe said, “You have to give credit to Florida State, they’re pretty talented on both sides of the ball, but we have to be a team that helps each other. You can’t just be a defensive team. You can’t just be an offensive team. Both sides have to play if you’re going to win.” “I think we’ve just got to come out and run the ball well. We’ll take our shots and if we execute I think we’ll be fine. Their defense, from what I’ve been looking at, is a very sound defense,” Campanaro said about the upcoming Georgia Tech game. The Deacons will be back in action next Saturday when they host Georgia Tech in another ACC contest. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m at BB&T Field.

A recipe for the perfect pregame By Mat Payne and Nathan Bedsole | Staff writers DISCLAIMER: The following views expressed do not represent those of the authors or the OGB. Neither party condones alcohol abuse or underage drinking. However, if you’re 21 and partake in the nectar of the gods… drink up buttercup. As members of the sacred brotherhood of the drink, we can say there is definitively a perfect level of drunkenness. For some it may be the moment where social inhibitions are cast aside and liquid courage takes control of your every faculty, and for others it may be drunk enough to not notice the layers of “Frat-sludge” at DKE’s. Regardless of personal preferences, any experienced drinker knows that the party starts far before actually “going out.” It starts at the pregame. For those less familiar with this art, pregaming (or “frontloading” as President Hatch calls it) is the act of getting drunk with a group of friends before actually going somewhere. But what’s the difference between this and the actual party? It’s a smaller more intimate gathering that provides the perfect atmosphere to get in “a good place.”

One Part Creativity After a long week of classes and homework that leave little room for innovation, you may be left with a lot of creativity pent up without an outlet to release it. What’s the easiest way to release this hidden potential? Make a drink. You know you’re pregaming because you want to be in a certain place at the bar or club, so hold nothing back when it comes to your drinks. Cracking Miller Lite with playing cards is fun, but it is nothing compared to the creative process of crafting libations with friends. Personal favorites that balance our trifecta of delicious, drunk and daring are the mint julep, the Tom Collins and an original concoction we like to call “Summer Beer.” While a cold gin and tonic is hard to beat when it’s hot out, the unlikely hero “Summer Beer” can be both a welcome change and a whole lot of fun to make. Summer Beer Four beers. Pabst is the favorite here, but anything on the lighter end of things works. One tube frozen lemonade or limeade concentrate Vodka

Use all ingredients cold to eliminate the need for ice later. In a sizeable container mix the four beers and your tube of frozen lemonade concentrate. Once said container of concentrate is empty, fill that up with vodka. Add this vodka to your vat, throw a cup in there with which to serve it, and stir gently to get the lemonade in liquid form. Serve in the brightest red solo cup you can find. For those unfamiliar with the beverage, the very process of creating this libation can be grating to aficionados of beer, vodka and lemonade alike. Once they take a sip, though, their doubts go out the window. This lightly carbonated lemony drink is surprisingly easy to drink – neither as heavy as beer by itself nor as dangerous as just vodka and lemonade. If your guests don’t see the mixing process, have them try it out before you divulge everything about it. We do not condone such secrecy when it comes to handing out drinks, but among friends you can surprise those close to you with how good this combination of unlikely ingredients is. If your money is on pregaming straight through the main event, feel free to try out Everclear instead of vodka. Remember though, moderation in all things. This drink conceals the bite that many associated with hard liquors, and it would be a shame to drink yourself sick while your friends are still trying to have a good time. Another drink that you may want to try is one with its roots in a camping trip to Stone Mountain in the need to sweeten an already fantastic whiskey – the “Southern Belle Becomes a Woman.” This drink, like the women it takes its name from, is sweet but with a feisty side, so be careful and don’t go too crazy or else you may end up feeling Sherman’s army marching directly on your head. Southern Belle Becomes a Woman 2 parts wild turkey bourbon 1 part peach cider Serve in a tumbler with crushed ice and a garnish of a mint

Two Parts Atmosphere The mood of the evening is going to be largely determined by the atmosphere of the pre-game so set the tone right with the right combination of music and people. Just as there is no party without booze, there’s also no pregame without music. There’s no shame in playing top 40 pop songs or the latest electro beats that force your hands to gravitate towards the shot class, but don’t let

the standards stifle your pregame into routine blandness. The first and foremost rule for pregame music is that has to have soul regardless of the genre. There’s nothing like letting the smooth sounds of Otis Redding coax the beer you’re shot gunning down your throat or having pong balls go into cups to the beat or your favorite Titus Andronicus song (beer pong is outlawed on campus, so be careful). If you want to let the music be the center of your pregame, the power hour is the route you want to take. For those unfamiliar with this particular way to imbibe, the participants will drink a swig of beer every minute for an hour, usually accentuated by music that changes songs every minute to remind you to drink. There are plenty of these floating around on the internet and are accessible for most musical tastes. Taking a completely different route, there’s no reason to rely on your stereo for music when you and your friends are more than perfectly capable of making it yourself. Seemingly everyone knows how to play a few songs on guitar or has mixed a few tracks on their computers, so why not show off your natural skill? The worst case scenario is everyone drinking more to make it sound alright. Though it’s not the most typical pregame situation, the bond that’s created through the musical experience is much stronger than simply hanging out, which after all is the whole reason for drinking in a group.

A Splash of Color The best advice towards a good pregame is to keep changing it up. By experimenting with the various elements of the pregame you’re sure to come up with your own individual recipe for perfection that can be made again.

Why did the chicken really cross the road? William Daly Staff columnist

Everyone has heard the story, it crossed the road to get to the other side. Yet, how much time have we as a society really invested in the understanding of America’s most popular poultry? I can tell you, very little. The chicken is like the modern pop culture icon. Everyone is always talking about why or how he is crossing the road. I recently sat down with this infamous chicken, and he wanted me to pass a few

things along to the general population, kind of a quelling of all the rumors that have been circulating. My first question, as you can imagine, was, “Why, why so many roads and for so many reasons?” His answer was very complex, a collection of much of his childhood and late adolescence, but I will try to summarize his thoughts here. See, he has never in fact crossed a road, but merely made it half-way. He realized, and since we were all teenagers once we can relate, that he just did not want to be defined by the road any longer. He thought to himself, as a figment of human imagination, without the road he would no longer exist. Without the proposition of road crossing, his entire reality would be null and void. Being defined by his actions was against his very being, yet without acting

he ceased to be. Now, acting selfishly he chicken or the egg?” Well, that blockstopped in the middle of the road, but buster was all him. not without contemplating its effects.

Yet, you may wonder how I was still able to conduct my interview with him. You can merely think up a quick punch line and revive him for a quick moment in time. So I ask my audience one final question: Why did the chicken cross the road? Because he wants to see the light on the “other side.”

Coffee shop offers more than just java By Katie Mahone | Staff writer

At this point in the semester, as the stress of tests and papers begins to set in and fatigue and sleep-deprivation only make matters worse, many students turn to Starbucks’ liquid caffeine for sustenance. For those who dislike the hustle and bustle of the library, Campus Grounds offers a cozy and less-pricy alternative. If you’re still not satisfied, though, it might be time to look off campus for that perfect study spot. Not in the mood for studying? Fear not – this little downtown gem, located at 211 E.

Movie Review | Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps

Wall Street opts for love, drama over money By Chantel O’Neal | Life editor

Director Oliver Stone is known for his mastery of tackling controversial issues on the big screen, but perhaps Stone bit off a bit more than he could chew with Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps. A sequel to Stone’s 1987 Wall Street, the film picks up with Gordon Gekko’s (played by Michael Douglas) release from prison after serving eight years for insider trading. Now on the outs of the financial world he once d o m i nated, Gekko Wall Street: Money appears softer Never Sleeps than his Starring | Michael Douglas, Shia villainLaBeouf and Carey Mulligan ous, preDirector | Oliver Stone prison Who’s it for? | Fans of the original self, but fans of Wall Street the origiRunning Time | 2 hrs. 13 mins. nal film Rating | B shouldn’t worry — he still has a handful of clever lines. While Gekko has plenty of screen time, the film centers more on Jake Moore (Shia LaBeouf ), a savvy energy investment expert who happens to be engaged to Gekko’s daughter Winnie (Carrey Mulligan). After Moore’s mentor, Louis Zabel, commits suicide, Moore blames Churchill Schwartz’s Bretton James and seeks revenge any way he can — even if that means turning to Gekko for help. But Gekko’s age hasn’t changed him much (despite what he claims prison has taught him about time), and he is still living up to his “greed is good” motto. In the end the villain isn’t Gekko, or even James. It’s greed itself. Stone is careful not to point fingers, because greed in Money Never Sleeps stretches from Wall Street to Main Street – shown through Moore’s mother (Susan Sarandon), a real estate agent who cares more about making a profit than making a difference. Through the plots twists and turns, most of which are pretty predictable, I couldn’t help but wonder, “Where is the money?” Stone sets his film in 2008, on the brink of the nation’s biggest financial crisis, but he barely skims the surface. For a film with money in the title and supposedly at the center of its plot, it is surprisingly void of it. In fact, there are just as many (if not more)

Michael Douglas and Shia LaBeouf starred in the sequel to the 1987 film by Oliver Stone called Wall Street. “green” references to alternative energy as there are to cold, hard cash. Don’t get me wrong, Stone throws around plenty of financial jargon like “moral hazard,” “government bailouts” and “mortgage defaults,” but there was little meaning behind them. You’ll see the Wall Street tycoons in starched shirts sitting in plush leather chairs around an enormous table, but they appear to do a lot of talking without saying very much. I’m not in the Business School nor do I find derivatives and interest rates thrilling, but I still felt Stone barely dipped his big toe into the complexities of the financial debacle. While I realize the fine details are most likely way over my head, I think Stone underestimated the public’s interest. Maybe he was just a little too busy putting together his string of goofy transitions that were full of bubbles and line graphs. Yes, they looked cool the first time, but they were useless in conveying any real information (think an economic version of An Inconvenient Truth, only worse). I applaud Stone’s attempt to humanize the faceless corporations and business moguls (you’ll find that the film’s big businesses parallel Lehman Brothers and Goldman Sacchs), but the characters spend more time attending fundraising dinners and racing

motorcycles than they do on Wall Street. Despite the lack of “Wall Street,” the characters rise above the vague plot and financial terms. Douglas shines as Gekko, and LaBeouf proves that he’s grown up since his Transformer and Disturbia days. Even Sarandon’s brief role still captures the conflicted desire to want more, even at the expense of your own children. Oliver does, however, brilliantly depict the pivotal role of speculation. Stone’s characters sell rumors as well as they sell stocks. And the interlaced news clips show how easily fear can be perpetuated, making smoke when there is no fire. Perhaps my biggest issue with Money Never Sleeps was Stone’s ending. To avoid giving anything away, suffice it to say that the last 15 minutes are too neat. Loose ends are tied. Almost everyone is satisfied, if not outright happy. But that’s just not how real life is. We all lived through this economic tragedy, and we are still struggling to understand and overcome it. Good intentions and a tremendous cast make Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps worth the ticket price. But be ready for a hearty helping of drama, romance and tears, because it’s not all about the money.

Relationship milestones define our generation By Ken Myer | Staff writer

Relationships in our generation follow a pattern that appalls anyone above the age of 25. At least, that’s the conclusion that six of my friends drew during dinner last week. The grinding on dance floors of frat parties leads to more sex than some care to acknowledge. No one thinks your relationship is even real if its not Facebook official. Superbad, Juno, Youth In Revolt and countless other Michael Cera films depict now clichéd scenes of overzealous teens seeking sex in various degrees relationship angst. What are today’s relationship milestones? When should they occur? How do you move between them? I’m going to answer these questions by offering two widely varying relationship examples. First, there exists the more romanticized ideal of relationship milestones. One asks the other out on a first date; that date leads to more dates. The two becomes official – Facebook official. One of the two eventually and awkwardly hints at the possibility of sex; the other awkwardly hints that the three words “I love you” are the magical key. After three months, six months, a year or when the university allows them to move off campus, the two move into an apartment together.One proposes. Marriage ensues. Children cry. They live happily ever after. Second, a completely unromantic ideal of relationship milestones has pervaded campuses across the country. The two glimpse each other across a crowded party; they dance. One whispers to the other that they should go back “somewhere.” The next day the relationship is Facebook official. There’s no need for them to get an apartment to live together; one lives in the other’s dorm room. Eventually the two move into an apartment. One proposes.

Marriage ensues. Children cry. They live happily ever after. They get divorced. These two examples are obviously over-exaggerated. Couples break up. Relationships move in and out of exclusivity and openness. Couples desire to have the true, romantic, loving, sweep-you-off-into-the-sunset version of a relationship. Others never want to live with each other and remain friends-with-benefits for four years of college. Nothing is clear cut. Maybe a frat party is the most romantic place in the world to be swept off your feet as brothers in the background shout“Freshman! Freshman! Freshman!” Maybe being Facebook official today is the virtual equivalent of saying “I love you.” Or maybe one still wants the other to ask parental permission before going out on a first date. “Hello sir. What a lovely knife you’re sharpening! Can I take you daughter on a first date?”In the end, relationships come down to leaps of faith. A recurring set of lines from the summer blockbuster Inception perhaps best sum up this idea. “I’ll tell you a riddle. You’re waiting for a train. A train that will take you far away. You know where you hope this train will take you, but you don’t know for sure. But it doesn’t matter. How can it not matter to you where this train will take you?” You can’t ever know how your relationship milestones will unfold. But it doesn’t matter. “Because you’ll be together.”

He Said


By Nicole Stanton | Staff writer

Before we even begin to address how to approach the bigger questions such as: how do you know when it’s appropriate to take the next step (i.e. deciding to be exclusive, sex, saying “I love you,” living together, etc.) or when should these certain milestones happen? I think it can be said that relationships are tough. Why? Well, most obviously, there is no one answer or rule book on Wikipedia on “how to attain the perfect relationship.” In fact, these very questions stand as the key plot points for most romantic comedies due to the awkwardness that can ensue after discussing these most serious of concerns. We’ve all seen Wedding Crashers and laughed at Jeremy’s, “I got a stage five. Virgin. Clinger.” No one ever wants to be that girl. So how do we approach these bigger milestones without hurt someone’s feelings or misunderstandings? Communication The cliché “it takes two to tango” has never been more appropriate than when thinking of anything concerning relationships.Without the proper understanding from both parties involved there is a lot of gray area which creates room for misinterpretation and confusion. While these conversations are the hardest it is because they are the most necessary. The best approach is honesty. Just as much as you do not want to get hurt or be led on, neither does the other person; therefore it is best to be honest. There will always be the

Comedy tour brings the laughs By Nicole Stanton | Staff writer

possibility that you both do not want the same things, but is it not better to find that out sooner rather than later? At least the conversation will bring some clarification as to whether or not the other person does want to move in, date exclusively, or say it was fun but maybe I should just avoid your lounge for a while… Do what feels right for you. There is no “right” way or set time as movies often lead us to believe. Everyone has their own priorities and that makes relationships unique to the couple. Just because Noah and Allie told each other how much they loved each other after a week in The Notebook does not mean you need to, nor should you expect your boyfriend to behave like a fictional character from your favorite love story. Similarly, if your older sister waited until she said, “I do” to lose her virginity, it does not mean that you need to hold out. Ask yourself questions like, do I want this? Will I regret this? Am I doing this for myself or for someone else? At the end of the day, you will have to face the consequences. However, at the same time, remember that someone else’s feelings may be affected by your actions. Time After travelling abroad I have discovered that American’s have an instilled “time is money” approach; time can be “spent,” “borrowed,” “wasted,” “lost,” etc. This mentality often transcends to our relationships and thus creates all sorts of pressures such as, “I’m a senior and still a virgin,” or “I want to stay with Claire after we graduate but with medschool I won’t be ready to settle down for at least another eight years.” The best advice I can offer is to there is no time when milestones “should happen.” The only social time line that exists is the one you put on yourself. Be dynamic, be open and be honest.

With the disappearance of “Wake Wednesdays” there seems to be less to do during the week unless you are of age to partake in “ThirstyThursdays.” However, last hump-day’s visit by the touring Second City Comedy show Group proved a nice break from the mundanity of the week. The Second City Comedy Group, based in Chicago, has been performing their unique style of comedy centered in improvisation, short-skits, songs, sketches and anything funny for the past 50 years. While the group is known to cover just about anything, their Second City Goes to College: The FAFSA and the Furious tour show made its way to Brendle Recital Hall featuring material all about university life on campus and surrounding it. The group consisted of two female actors, three men and a piano man performed for two in addition to the final half hour encore that included Wake Forest’s very own comedy group, the Lilting Banshees. Working together for the first time, the two groups acted out various situations all on impromptu dialogue supplied by the audience. Anything ranging from creepy roommates, academic probation, parent-child conversation about sex and drinking, to wicked nurses and naïve students played

out on the stage. The hall was filled with a constant roar of laughter. While the show was highly entertaining and comedic, the focusing themes of sex, drinking, homosexuality and the awkwardness bordering transitional period in one’s life did get slightly redundant. When taking suggestions from the student body, I was disappointed by the lack of differentiation in choice of topics, as I believe it may have limited the expression of the group by not allowing them to expand beyond the college realm and show their profound talent. I’m not saying we all don’t chuckle or find some humor in the verb “masturbate,” or the adjectives “spermicidal” or “horny,” but it took very little imagination for these improvisers to act out scenes based on these suggestions; thus, the punch lines to some of their acts in which other members needed to guess the given word or predicament were diminished. In fact, at one point one of the comedians commented, “you guys are in college, you should know more vocabulary.” As the saying goes, “there is always some truth to a joke” and Wake Forest may have left a lasting impression on the crew that we may be fun, but not the most mature of audiences. Nonetheless, the improvisations remained my favorite of their acts as the random pulling of students on stage did result in an unexpected make out

session, in addition to a return to high school prom from one undergrad. When the performers were not involving the student body, they managed to show us the American household in the years of 2010, 1990 and 1929 hence proving their talent in role-playing and making pop cultural references not only applicable to the current times. One of the more impressive attributes of the show was the group’s ability to turn heavy issues such as teenage pregnancy, under-age drinking, love and life after graduation into humorous scenes without losing the weight of the given topic. While giving humor to life milestones, yet not mocking their significance, Second City reminded the audience that humor is as much of an emotion as love or tragedy and can manifest itself in many situations. There’s no fix like a good laugh and while it may have been somewhat repetitious after two and a half hours of college themed humor, the Second City Tour gave students a chance to lighten up and laugh at jokes that are all too aimed to poke fun at their own sexuality and pastimes. As for the Second City Tour, their talent for improvisation and crowd-pleasing remains top-notch and leaves no room for objection as to why they maintained their prestige and popularity after 50 years of sketch comedy.

sive pallet warmer. However, despite the cool of the banana nut muffin, the flavors were a bit too bold for a starter. For my entree, I chose to trust in my tendency towards creative and created my own omelet. This was perhaps the best prepared omelet on the southeast coast. Prepared with three fresh eggs, the omelet was stuffed with sausage, ham, bacon, mushroom, spinach and Swiss cheese—a combination that proved to be absolutely divine and made for a small army of starving men. It was the largest omelet I have ever seen still in perfect formation and shape. The eggs were fluffy without too much salt or pepper. The omelet was complimented by a fresh fruit cup of strawberries, cantaloupe, honeydew and pineapples as well as a healthy helping of home fries baked to perfection. Also of note was the restaurant’s polish sausage which is prepared over an open grill leaving a wood grain smokiness which is always pleasant to the taste buds. For my “dessert,” I decided on a Belgian waffle covered in whip cream and sliced strawberries. The reason for the quotations is because the waffle is a meal within itself and will perhaps be my entree during my next visit.

Hutch and Harris Pub offers a delicious selection of a Belgian waffle complete with toppings. Even though the waffle was served with syrup, I did not give this taste accessory a second glance after taking the first bite of this waffle. The entire bite simply melted in my mouth. The homemade whipped cream and the fresh strawberries sans artificial liquids of canned gunk were heavenly.

This is the way the waffle was meant to exist. Other dessert options are a cherry walnut cheesecake, homemade ice cream freshly churned each day and a decadent chocolate dish that just might rocket you into outer space. For a great atmosphere, great service and great food, lassez les bon temps roulez at this fantastic restaurant.

From Friday, Sept. 24 to Sept. 26, the Lady Deacons Golf Team competed in the Mason Rudolph Championship on the Vanderbilt Legends Course in Nashville, Tenn. All-American sophomore Michelle Shinn shot a schoolrecord 7-under 65 in the opening round of the tournament and snagged a two-shot lead. In the first seven holes, Shin posted five birdies and kept up her accuracy with pars on eight conShin secutive holes and birdies on the three final holes. “I felt good about my game, although I didn’t score as well as I would have liked the previous week (NCAA Fall Preview), I felt confident with my game and just hoped for the putts to fall this week and they did,” Shinn said. The Deacons carded a 2-under 286 and tied for eights at the conclusion of the first round.

On the second day of tournament play, the Deacons maintained consistent play with an under-par round of 284 and moved up to tie for fourth place. Michelle Shinn shot a 2-under 70 and maintained her lead at 9-under par. “Overall I am happy about how I did because not only did it help boost my confidence but it felt great for putts to actually go in and post some low rounds,” Shin said. Senior Natalie Sheary, who had tied for ninth in the NCAA Fall Preview, also shot a 70, which was her fourth round at par or better this season. Despite a temperamental wind, the Deacons held strong in the final round of the challenge by placing ninth. Shin carded a 1-under 71 and finished second in the Mason Rudolph Championship with a total score of 206 on the 54 holes. Shinn was the second Demon Deacon in school history to post 3-under par rounds in an event behind Alexandra Armas in the 1995-96 season. “I am hoping to go into the Lady Tar Heel Invitational with a confident mindset and continue to practice so that my putting stays strong and my hitting stays consistent,” Shin said.
