Back in Business We’re back. It was four days of media blitz and coffee-fueled tweet-a-thons. And now, we’re writing this from The Red and Black building on Baxter Street from the editor in chief corner office. The view of Jimmy John’s is dazzling. But you probably want to know why we left. That story is too big, too long and too wide to tell on the front page. Find it inside this paper and on our website, — or better yet, come up to the office and ask us to tell you the story ourselves. The first thing you need to know is this: Julia’s dad had the best advice back in June. “Do what they want you to do until you can’t do it,” he said. And on Aug. 15, we knew “it.” “It” was threat to student editorial control, which we found unacceptable. We have both worked at The Red and Black since the opening weeks of our freshman year. This is where we learned journalism. This is where we learned how to make good decisions and how to correct our mistakes. Student staff gathered Aug. 17 for an open meeting at The Red and Black building on Baxter Street. There, they were joined by alumni and the Board of Directors. C.B. SCHMELTER/Staff

Walking out was not a mistake. We want freshmen to have the same opportunities we had — including the opportunity to lead a staff without a safety net. We agreed that day we would only return to our positions if they were the jobs we were hired to do. We met with the Board and we asked for three things — no prior review, more student input and editorial control restored to the student leaders. We’re done making the news. Now, we’re back to report it.

UGA community discusses, reacts to staffers’ walkout BY ASHTON ADAMS The Red & Black After a walkout by student editors at The Red & Black offices Aug. 15 spurred nationwide discussion, the University community reacted to the national media blitz. The editors returned to work Aug. 21. “I know that The Red & Black was established as a student-run paper, and they continue to take pride in that fact to this day,� said Ryan Harrast, a senior communications major from Alpharetta. “So when seemingly major changes are being made by a board of directors, it seems like the paper is abandoning its roots.� The Red & Black Board of Directors dubbed the impetus a “misunderstanding� resulting from miscommunication. Editor-in-Chief Polina Marinova wrote in a statement Aug. 16 that “recently [the staff] began feeling serious pressure from people who were not students,� thus leading to the walkout. “From the start, I sided with the students. They took the heart of The Red & Black with them when they left,� said Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication professor Barry Hollander. “The board had created an atmosphere that violated the basic tenets of journalism.� Staffers, editors and designers gathered Friday at The Red & Black offices for an open discussion with board members, leaving the building “thankful and excited for the progress made,� according to a release pub-

Professor Barry Hollander said he was supportive of student editors and their concerns throughout the entirety of the conflict. C.B. SCHMELTER/Staff

lished by former staffers on â&#x20AC;&#x153;The students were right to walk out on something that was compromising their integrity, but at the same time I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe the board was fully at fault for trying to prevent the theoretical sinking of the ship,â&#x20AC;? said Morgan Kemper, a sophomore social work major from Marietta. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can see both sides, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great to see that things could be settled.â&#x20AC;? After Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meeting, The Red & Black board and the publisher, Harry Montevideo, issued a statement expressing their â&#x20AC;&#x153;deepest apologiesâ&#x20AC;? and hopes for a resolution.

Hollander said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The paper itself faces financial issues, and the board has a lot of work to get done internally to get things more up to date.â&#x20AC;?

TWEET MONKEY: The revolution will be tweeted BY LINDSEY COOK @LINDZCOOK The Red & Black On Aug. 15 around 5 p.m., everyone in The Red & Black office filed into the conference room. Polina Marinova, our editor-in-chief, was in tears. All summer, the perfect storm had been brewing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve just resigned as editor in chief. Guys, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m leaving,â&#x20AC;? Marinova said. Silence. Stares. Thinking. Tiffany Stevens, the variety editor, spoke up first: â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you leave, I leave. I follow you, Spartacus.â&#x20AC;? Laughter. Family. Smiles. Determination. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m leaving too.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s go.â&#x20AC;? It happened that quickly. Just did leave The storm at The Red & Black went beyond Athens. It was a war of old versus new â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the same fight happening at every newspaper. On one side: the technology natives, Generation X. The mobile-phone-carrying children who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t eat a sandwich without alerting Twitter. The contenders: our grandparentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; generations â&#x20AC;&#x201D; people who questioned if the Internet was a â&#x20AC;&#x153;fadâ&#x20AC;? and tried to go digital-first without a mobile application. Because of the divide, I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t reform our online presence like I wanted. I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t trusted. So, I walked. I went to my desk. My heart was pounding. My hands were shaking. The revolution began. Outgunned The reason I left Red & Black turned into The Red and Deadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strength. It was cowboys versus Indians: we had guns; they had bows and arrows. Within an hour, our brand was on Twitter, Facebook and Wordpress. The questions poured in. Everyone was working on something. I switched from tweet monkey to code monkey. I hurriedly worked with Gabe Ram to set-up our website. My iPad continually blinked with Twitter notifications. There were retweets and tweets to celebrities begging for a retweet. It was too late to corral everyone. I can be a control freak, but I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t control this. So I kept working. When Marinovaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s statement was finished I took a breather, for about five minutes. Our Twitter account crashed because of spam-like activity. Back to my control freak self. After looking over Twitter, Facebook and, I was confident. Our website had close to 50,000 page views in less than 24 hours. The Google Doc I published Ed Stamperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s memo in to save time crashed because of too many active viewers. It was my first allnighter of 2012. I ran off of the adrenaline alone. I was confident the call

would come tomorrow, begging for us back. We would win. I was sure. I was wrong. Hostile negotiations On Thursday morning, I guzzled coffee and headed to class. I tweeted during class breaks and during class, too. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hear anything my professors talked about. All my thoughts were on the upcoming meeting with The Red & Black Board. I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t keep up. After one class, I turned on my computer and 65 comments were waiting for approval. I stopped reading. I was still expecting a text that we had our jobs back. It was payday tomorrow. Instead, I got anger and frustration. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is B.S.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;How can they be saying this?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is ridiculous.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leave.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;OK. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s go.â&#x20AC;? My heart took a hit. It was clear the meeting was a disaster. They didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want us back. They would replace us. Nothing would change. They continued to play hardball. It was baffling. With the attention we were getting, there was no way they would win. We were fighting with biological warfare and they were throwing rocks. Then I understood: they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give up because they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get it. I did. I kept going. We moved into content production that night. I hurried to fix menus on our Wordpress theme: sports, news, variety, opinion. I checked my email to a flood of messages with â&#x20AC;&#x153;READY TO PUBLISHâ&#x20AC;? in the subject line. By the time most of the world woke up, we had begun a rival news organization. The Red & Black scheduled an open meeting. We used social media to get alumni, students and other news organizations to 540 Baxter Street the next day. I still hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t slept. On the wire If it was war, Friday was D-Day. The best way for me to stay ahead of all the social media attention was to live tweet the meeting. I publicized. The talk began. But when I was driving to meet the staff, tweets flowed in. Complaints. Anger. Confusion. The Red & Black had changed the â&#x20AC;&#x153;open meeting and discussionâ&#x20AC;? to a â&#x20AC;&#x153;recruitment meeting,â&#x20AC;? no longer public. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These people are a PR disaster,â&#x20AC;? I thought. I read off the tweets to the fellow editors. The debate began. Should we even go? A picture came in showing all the media waiting in the lobby. I passed my phone around. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to go,â&#x20AC;? I said. I pulled up. There was a line of video cameras.I went in. The rest was a blur. I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let myself

think about it. Marinova and others were there to fight the Boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fight. Online, I fought the one the board didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know existed. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard that during the meeting, I averaged more than a tweet per minute. But my biggest test came about 20 minutes into the meeting when our publisher ended up on the floor with a student reporter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Did you see that? Are you going to tweet that? Say this, say that, use

this word.â&#x20AC;? I struggled for a couple of seconds about what word to use â&#x20AC;&#x201D; â&#x20AC;&#x153;scuffle.â&#x20AC;? Did anyone have a photo? Former Opinions Editor Charles Hicks hurried over to me. It was dumb luck. The photos went viral. Our story went viral. It was over. On Monday, the Board released a joint statement. Students would sit on the board. Ed Stamper resigned. No prior review. We were all coming

back. The new world had won.

The Red & Black, I felt the obvious difference. Social media means something. More than anything, social media is a conversation. In the past, The Red & Black hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realized this. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve made a habit of talking at people instead of with people. This has changed. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve changed. Talk to us. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re listening.

-30I came back on Tuesday. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to leave the revolution. So, I asked Twitter. -30- meant the end of a transmission during the American Civil War era. A mentor of mine who works at The Washington Post suggested it. It was the perfect blend of old and new. When I went back to

After Red and Dead Nick Fouriezos

For the editorial board

Our sports editor reflects on lessons learned from a week in journalistic trenches I used to laugh about my role in journalism. Not that I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take it seriously. But, as sports editor, I always downplayed my role in the newsroom. When I talked to news writers, I would say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;well, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worry about me. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not like Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a real journalist. I just write sports.â&#x20AC;? At the end of the day, sports are simple â&#x20AC;&#x201D; you win or you lose. That is about as controversial as it gets, and I was okay with that, because I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t trying to change the world. I was just trying to tell the stories that I loved. But there comes a point when you have to care â&#x20AC;&#x201D; when the gravity of a situation is so discomfiting that to accept indifference is to be negligent. And last Wednesday, there was no doubt in my mind that such a moment had come â&#x20AC;&#x201D; when I saw my Editor in Chief, Polina Marinova, crying over a memo that stole editorial control of the Red & Black from students. I had cared before, but this was something different. This was a call to action, and I joined the others who walked out. In hours we had hundreds of online followers; in a day, thousands. And while our followers received flash updates on Twitter and at, what they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see were the sleepless nights and the three hours of rest we sandwiched between frenzied work from Wednesday night to Friday afternoon. Talk about putting your learning into practice. In the course of a few days, we learned valuable lessons about offthe-record statements, how to use social media as a platform to enact change and how to stay professional despite obvious, emotional connections to an issue. Finally, when the dust had settled and Monday passed, we slept. With student editorial control secured, on Tuesday we returned to the offices of the Red & Black. But, at least for me, there have been changes. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t laugh about my role as a reporter anymore â&#x20AC;&#x201D; not after what has occurred here. I recognize that in a new media world, newspapers are struggling as they learn to adapt. However, the adaptation can never overshadow the importance of remaining true to our journalistic ethics. To seek the truth and report it. To minimize harm. To act independently. To be accountable. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Nick Fouriezos is a junior from Cumming majoring in Engish and journalism

Ryan pick bodes ill for American politics

Ryan criticism result of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;scare campaignâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;



onservatism in America is on the move. Conservatives are motivated and ready to make changes. This election could be their battle to win. The foremost reason is that Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s presidency has been less than stellar. With the economy still mired in recession, the President has not shown clear leadership on addressing unemployment. The surging conservative movement has pushed to lower taxes and government spending, casting aside social programs and environmental regulations. Intransigent Republicans almost drove the country to financial default during the debt ceiling debate. To this day, they will not compromise on their mission to keep taxes on the wealthiest Americans low. I would be happy to see a Republican challenger that would approach the budget with an eye toward getting our finances in order in a way Americans can broadly agree on. With the selection of Paul Ryan as the vice presidential candidate, however, the hardline conservatives

have their crowning triumph. His proposed budget for the coming year cuts deep into funding for education and food stamps and privatizes Medicare. He proposes a greatly flattened income tax that lowers taxes on the very rich, at the expense of everyone else. What this country needs now is pragmatic, forwardthinking leadership â&#x20AC;&#x201D; not people clinging to extreme ideology. Sadly, what the country got is Paul Ryan, who is not just a practitioner but a symbol of that divisive ideology. It is evidence that the Republican Party is being driven by destructive ideologues. It is not a good sign for our political future. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Martin Hogan is a senior from Smyrna majoring in cognitive science

ho is Paul Ryan? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the question echoing around the country in the meeting rooms of a hundred Democrat focus groups. Since the announcement that Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan is the Republican vice presidential candidate, left-leaning journalists have been happily hammering away at their keyboards to construct a Ryan-torpedoing narrative. These arguments are willfully deceptive. A common refrain against Paul Ryan is that he is a coldblooded disciple of free market philosopher Ayn Rand. This is true, to a point: in a 2005 speech to the Atlas Society (named after Randâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s landmark novel, Atlas Shrugged), Ryan credits Rand as the thinker who led him to a career in politics. By itself, this means little: Atlas Shrugged has sold six million copies, and countless conservatives and libertarians attribute their political conversion to Randâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s forceful prose. So who is Paul Ryan?

Arguments against Paul Ryan are part of a wider scare campaign waged by individuals who have already expressed willingness to lie and throw low blows to salvage the Obama campaign.

America shys away from objective news For those who have not yet tuned in, HBOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Newsroomâ&#x20AC;? might be one of the best shows on television. Among the quirky oneliners and stereotypical character entanglements of any Aaron Sorkin primetime drama, the series highlights how network and cable news shows have lost their way, favoring ratings and revenue over providing important information to the public. Who knew such a statement could become so relevant? Last week, the New York Post reported CNN may add to its lineup reality television and talk shows that have a news twist. I read this as saying they are going to hire Kim Kardashian to critique Mitt Romney and Paul Ryanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hair products. While I am appalled that a respected news networkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s monetary motives would lead them to consider such a move, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t blame them. After all, the public decides the course of television, and when it comes to being informed, they simply do not care. The general public would much rather keep up with Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relationship status than the civil war in Syria. And letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s be honest. As far

as print media is concerned, many people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t read anything beyond headlines and a few sentences, at best. It takes no more than a quick glance at the comments section below an online article to know that. If itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not in People or Cosmopolitan, apparently itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not worth reading. Others may claim that they get information through subjective news sources such as editorials or talk radio. If this is you, you might as well stick to getting information from email forwards. Walter Cronkite once said that â&#x20AC;&#x153;objective journalism and an opinion column are about as similar as the Bible and Playboy magazine.â&#x20AC;? In many cases, opinions columns can lead to inaccurate representations of what really happened. Just listen to Rush Limbaugh for an hour, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll understand. As long as the general populace doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seek facts to discern meaning for themselves, they will never be truly informed.

Suddenly, everyone becomes an advocate. And rather than becoming attentive to whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important, everyone would much rather focus on sensationalized reports that have no real effect on society.

All in all, CNNâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s move toward soft media may seem like a trivial matter. But it has much larger significance. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an indication that viable sources Americans could count on are fading. And without an informed public, can a democratic society truly survive?

‘Kitty Cams’ study cat behavior

Downtown Athens parking meters fund bus passes for homeless

Researchers at the University recently paired up with the National Geographic Society to do a study on free roaming cats, known as the Kitty Cams Project. The project explored how cats behave in natural environments without disrupting their behavior. According to, the cams were used to study both cats’ influence as predators on the environment in order to analyze common risks faced by owned outdoor cats. Kerrie Anne Lloyd, a recent graduate of the Warnell School of Forestry and Natural

Old parking meters in downtown Athens collect money for the homeless, and the money goes to a surprising cause – bus passes. The four meters were set up to discourage panhandling and encourage people to deposit money into the meters instead of handing it out to the homeless on the street. The Northeast Georgia Homeless and Poverty Coalition uses the donations to purchase bus passes, helping provide access to transportation, said Coalition Director and Executive Director of Action Ministries Erin

The Kitty Cams Project put collar-mounted devices on local felines. NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC REMOTE IMAGING/Courtesy Resources at the University, studied the effects of domestic cats on wildlife. There were 60 participating cats, each wearing a collar mounted with a Crittercam, according to Kittycams.

Lloyd said usable footage was only obtained from 55 of the 60 cats. —Taylor West

Barger. “That is a way that that money can help support people in Athens as they try to move forward and move out of poverty,” she said. Abigail Dicks, a sophomore prebusiness student from Lawrenceville, said she would only consider donating if she knew the money was going to a local organization or shelter where “they could go to and help them get off the street.”

Four to score: UGA soccer freshmen see highs, lows

The Georgia defensive line will be focusing on an open rotation next season, with starters saying that the extra rest will allow them to excel. SEAN TAYLOR/Staff


Defensive tackles â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;feed off each otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Georgia nose tackles John Jenkins and Kwame Geathers and defensive end Abry Jones are poised to put pressure on opposing lines this upcoming season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The defense is coming together real good,â&#x20AC;? Jones said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the focus is where it needs to be. I think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all just wrestlers going through a short camp, adjusting to school and all that.â&#x20AC;? Although defensive coordinator and associate coach Todd Grantham has stated his 3-4 defense will have more rotations this year than last, the starters actually embrace the extra help. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel great about that,â&#x20AC;? Jones said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think more rotation gives more guys a chance to get a breather. Having a rotation is a good thing for the team. It just means you have more playmakers

on the team.â&#x20AC;? Jones also said that the fresh legs will be essential in creating turnovers, which is something many Bulldog fans can be excited about. Jenkins said he liked the rotation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tremendous help,â&#x20AC;? Jenkins said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In this league, you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just have one player for one position and expect him to do everything everyday. Kwame needs me and I need Kwame. We need each other. We feed off of each other.â&#x20AC;? Geathers said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like it. We do things together. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good combination. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re teammates.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Luke Dixon

At the end of every season, in every college sport, there is a loss of senior leadership. It is no different for the Georgia soccer team, which lost three seniors in May. However, Georgia head coach Steve Holeman mentioned four contributing freshmen to watch for, including versatile defender Tori Patterson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a center back, and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of our top players,â&#x20AC;? Holeman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re working on trying to find the right spot for her right now.â&#x20AC;? Patterson said that she sees herself more as a defender. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m in midfield, I still concentrate on my defensive responsibilities,â&#x20AC;? Patterson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m also really aggressive and good in the air.â&#x20AC;? Coach Holeman also praised freshman midfielder Liliana Rios. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Liliana Rios has come in and made a name for herself,â&#x20AC;? Holeman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fantastic in the midfield, she keeps the ball for us.â&#x20AC;? Rios, a native of Duluth, agreed that her ability to keep possession was one of her better qualities on the pitch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m composed. I like

Freshman Andie Fontanetta saw her early success cut short by a collarbone injury. WES BLANKENSHIP/Staff to play the ball around instead of just dribbling it,â&#x20AC;? Rios said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My best quality is that I can keep possession for the team.â&#x20AC;? Freshman forward Cara Smith has also impressed, despite injuries which have hampered her progress. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cara Smith has been a bit injured, but sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a fantastic forward and front-runner, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a goalscorer, and when sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s full go,â&#x20AC;? Holeman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll score some goals for us.â&#x20AC;? Smith was able to make early substitute appearances against

Georgia swimmers Allison Schmitt and Shannon Vreeland shared gold in London, with Schmitt bringing home four additional medals. WES BLANKENSHIP/Staff

Bulldog swimmers return from London with gold )5((






BY YOUSEF BAIG The Red & Black Two athletes returned to Athens this fall with something no one else campus had â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a gold medal. And senior swimmer Allison Schmitt brought home three of them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of weird when people recognize me and ask me if Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m Allison Schmitt, because I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really realize they mightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve watched the Olympics this summer,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is kinda cool, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s different and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something I never thought would happen.â&#x20AC;? Schmitt became the most decorated Georgia swimmer in history at the 2012 Olympic Games in London, winning five total medals to bring her career tally to six. She was able to share the highest level of the podium with fellow Lady Bulldog junior, Shannon Vreeland, after they set an Olympic record in the 4x200-meter freestyle relay. Their return to campus has brought them a newfound level of fame and inspired reactions from students that they hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t anticipated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was on the bus the other day and someone said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Would it be creepy to congratulate you?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Vreeland said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cool that so many people watch the Olympics and are taking the time to congratulate you when they see you ... it means a lot.â&#x20AC;? Nothing could have prepared them for the moment when they bent down to receive their medals and stood tall as the American flag was raised.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a dream come true,â&#x20AC;? Vreeland said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve watched the Olympics forever ... and I would always watch the people up on the podium and would cry with them, so being able to do that myself was awesome.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I stood right next to Shannon and I think I squeezed her hand so hard, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m surprised itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still on,â&#x20AC;? Schmitt said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was really exciting, and even walking out I was still really giddy. Hearing your national anthem and seeing the flag go up is an experience that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll never forget.â&#x20AC;? For Schmitt to reach the level of medal-contender at the London Games, she chose to take a year off from school and train with Michael Phelps and his longtime coach, Bob Bowman. Once the Olympics were over and Schmitt had reached the top of the mountain, there was speculation that she may forego her senior year and pursue other opportunities â&#x20AC;&#x201D; many of which were more financially viable. Georgia head coach Jack Bauerle said he never had any doubt of Schmittâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s return because he knew her love for the college game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There were opportunities, certainly,â&#x20AC;? Bauerle said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but the opportunities will be there when she puts her hand on the wall for the last relay for Georgia too.â&#x20AC;?

Creds posed conundrum for Red and Dead sports staff

AUGUST 23 ......................... Drive-By Truckers

The pivotal passage resides on Page 3. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Requests are honored from sports editors of DAILY newspapers, network affiliate television station sports directors, and websites that have a corresponding publication and/ or affiliation with a nationally recognized media entity/network,â&#x20AC;? it reads. The seemingly innocuous sentence in this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Georgia football media guide lies under the heading â&#x20AC;&#x153;Credentials.â&#x20AC;? To most, it means nothing. But to the members of The Red & Black sports staff who joined their colleagues in walking away from the paper last week, it was of the utmost importance. News reporters can still get crime reports, which are available to the public. They can still attend Board of Regents meetings and Student

Ryan Black Sports writer

Government Association events without needing a credential or a go-between to set up interviews. Those in the variety section can still talk to bands to preview an upcoming show without a liaison. They can buy tickets to movies or concerts and write reviews of them with no issue. And of course, anyone can write an opinion piece at any time. But the sports section is a different beast. Yes, these sports scribes â&#x20AC;&#x201D; including myself â&#x20AC;&#x201D; could attend events as a paying customer, scribble some notes and write a basic story. What they wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have, however,

is the access to players or coaches needed to give analysis and color to an article. Refer back Georgiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s process for requesting said credentials. Not being tethered to a printed publication or nationally recognized media entity would have been a sticking point as to whether Red & Dead sports writers were approved for access. Luckily for those sports writers who departed The Red & Black temporarily last week, Felton and those around him were right. But the second sentence on Page 3 of the media guide stands as a lasting reminder of how close we, the defectors, came to irrelevancy. â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Ryan Black is a senior from Elberton majoring in journalism

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;A Virus Named TOMâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;


The news waits for no one. And with so much of it out there, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to keep up. Fortunately, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s news aggregator apps for your phones. Unfortunately, most of them are clunky, slow and poorly coded.

Classics never die. Sometimes I wish they would. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Virus Named TOM,â&#x20AC;? released earlier this month, is a quirky puzzle game with dozens of levels and engaging art. The story line â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Dr. X creates a virus named TOM to bring down his former company â&#x20AC;&#x201D; is funny, but derivative. So is the game. Let me be clear: this is a souped-up version of Pipe Dream. Mixed with PacMan. Mixed with â&#x20AC;&#x153;Memory.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like a nerdy-nostalgia-throwback chimera, with more than a dash of Adult Swim humor. It is in no way the next â&#x20AC;&#x153;Portal 2â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; or the next anything, for that matter. That being said, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fairly fun, with levels that start out deceptively easy. The main character is cute; the between-level videos are hysterical. For a quick puzzle game, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a bad pick. And if you can get it on sale on Steam, even better.

A news aggregator that looks like a magazine, connects to your Facebook and Twitter and shows you the best content from a variety of sources. First thought: love. Second thought: still love.

FINDING FASHION: Resistance to overalls is futile BY ALEX LAUGHLIN The Red & Black High-waisted jeans. Crop tops. The Spice Girls. Maybe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s our generationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nostalgia for childhood â&#x20AC;&#x201D; or the inevitable cycle of fashion trends â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;90s are definitely making a comeback. And what piece of â&#x20AC;&#x2122;90s fashion gets my 20-year-old heart fluttering faster than the baseline of Aquaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Barbie Girl?â&#x20AC;? Overalls. I know what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re thinking â&#x20AC;&#x201D; shapeless denim sacks that

make you look like a 5-year-old rocking in the Gymboree rocking chairs? Not likely to make a second debut on the Athens fashion scene. But donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get your scrunchies in a bunch just yet. I have always been partial to overalls, but it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t until last year that I began seeing the tell-tale signs of their return to the mainstream. The first sign is the romper phenomenon. Rompers inexplicably became a thing last summer. Suddenly everyone had an excuse to wear shorts

downtown, which paved the way for the denim cutoffs the â&#x20AC;&#x153;sratâ&#x20AC;? stars love to sport these days. My second major clue: denim â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the LAUGHLIN more the better. Denim shirts and jackets became the fashion bloggerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s staple last spring. They slowly worked their way into the mainstream. Now I must ask

of you Doubting Thomases and Negative Nancies â&#x20AC;&#x201D; what more are overalls than denim rompers? If you need more convincing, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not the only one with denim bibs on the mind. Try to scroll through the Athens Street Style blog (formerly UGA Street Style) without finding a photograph of a hiplooking 20-something sporting some overalls. Hint: you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. Since school started last week, I have seen significantly more pairs of overalls around North Campus than I have

seen in the last year. The â&#x20AC;&#x2122;90s are coming back for all of us. You can either embrace it with a new pair of (thrifted) overalls, a crop top and a snap bracelet, or you can pretend to ignore it. Either way, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still going to belt out every word of your favorite Backstreet Boys song when it plays in 9dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bar. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be right back with the rest of us.
