For softball team, championship is in sight By ZACH DILLARD THE RED & BLACK Last year was a wild and crazy ride, but without the championship ending. This year the Georgia softball team has other plans for the 2010 Women’s College World Series. “We are going back and we are not going to settle for third [place] or less,” junior
Megan Wiggins said. “We want to go out with a national championship.” The sixth-seeded Bulldogs began their quest for a national championship late Thursday in Oklahoma City, taking on the defending champion Washington Huskies in the first session of the WCWS. The Bulldogs (48-11) made the program’s initial trip to

teams that are here,” said Georgia head coach Lu Harris-Champer. “Also, we are very thankful for the hospitality that we have been shown here, from our host, bat girls and everybody involved with the tournament.” Also playing in this year’s Series are ninth-seeded Missouri (51-11), 16th-seeded Hawaii (49-14), fourth-seeded
Florida (48-8), fifth-seeded UCLA, 10th-seeded Arizona (48-11) and 15th-seeded Tennessee (47-13). It is a double elimination tournament. The competition in Oklahoma City should prove much tougher than what Georgia faced to get there, as the Bulldogs ran through

Tuition hike to fund 25 new staff By DALLAS DUNCAN THE RED & BLACK Despite a fiscal year 2011 budget down 12.1 percent from the previous year, the University has plans to hire additional faculty, partially with money raised from increased tuition. “I’ve approved with [the provost] beginning in the fall semester, for the provost and the deans to initiate another round of searches for an additional 25 positions in highneed critical areas, which I hope will make another significant step in rebuilding faculty,” University President Michael Adams announced in a May budget meeting. “I continue to believe that faculty are the heart of this institution and that any available resources that we’re able to acquire have to go back into faculty hiring,” Adams said. Adams also said, however, a limited number of employee positions would be on the chopping block for the coming year. Some of these ADAMS will come from “A budget,” or the resident instruction budget, and others from “B budget,” which includes University programs such as Cooperative Extension. He said layoff notices would be distributed between now and October. “While I expect that 99 percent of your jobs will be protected in the 2011 budget, I cannot tell you that it will be 100 percent,” he said. Protecting as many faculty jobs as possible was one of two primary goals the administration has tried to achieve in the past two years, Adams said. The other was to continue to provide a quality educational experience to University students. One way the University will be pursuing these aspirations will come from the roughly $17.5 million acquired from increased tuition in fiscal year 2011. Incoming freshmen, rising sophomores and students who have been at the University longer than four years will be fronting this bill next year, paying an facing tuition increases yet, Adams said. UGA students will also continue to pay the $200 special institutional fee All students — students enrolled prior to fall 2006, students in the Guaranteed See TUITION, Page 2

S A view of surface oil in the Gulf of Mexico in a picture taken by UGA researchers investigating the effects of the oil spill. The spill began in April, when a British Petroleum-owned offshore drilling platform exploded. By DALLAS DUNCAN and GRACE MORRIS THE RED & BLACK As thousands of gallons of British Petroleum oil continue to stream unchecked into the Gulf of Mexico, University marine science researchers are gearing up to determine how to cap the flow. Samantha Joye, a professor in the School of Marine Programs, is leading a two-week research cruise in the Gulf to characterize and gauge the size of the largest deep water oil plume, or oil particle clumping, which resulted from the April 20 oil rig explosion — a plume that BP officials insist does not exist. “Nothing like these plumes has ever been seen before,” Joye wrote in her
Deep water oil plume examined by University team blog. “Seeing oil in this quantity from plume filters is convincing evidence that the deep waters do in fact contain oil.” Joye and her team sailed from Gulfport, Miss., on May 25, and six days later discovered the source of the plume. “When the water collected from within the plume was transferred into collection bottles, we noticed an oil sheen,” she wrote. “Everybody saw it. Everybody
got excited. Seeing is believing.” Bill Miller, associate director of academics in the School of Marine Programs, said Joye was not involved in the muchpublicized top-kill efforts, where BP attempted to close the leaking oil pipe with a mixture of pressurized mud and concrete. Instead, he said, Joye is analyzing this oil plume at sea and will bring back samples to see how much oxygen is consumed as various microbes eat the oil to break it down. Miller said Joye will also bring him back samples, which he will study using simulated sunlight to break down the particles. See SPILL, Page 2
Campus faces big changes Construction clogs campus roads By KELSEY BYRD FOR THE RED & BLACK Though the typical University colors are red and black, the campus is being overrun with orange and white this summer as traffic cones and detour signs decorate all four corners of campus. Portions of Baxter Street — from the intersection of Newton Street and Cloverhurst Avenue down to Lumpkin Street — will be closed until June 21, which could cause some traffic jams as students arrive for orientation. Right now, however, University buses are having to alter routes to avoid the roadblocks.
“Baxter Street is affecting the Silver route right now,” said Ron Hamlin, manager of Campus Transit. “East West will start being used once summer students start coming back for classes, but we don’t foresee any major issues.” Baxter is closed as construction crews build the Special Collections Library and the Northwest Precinct Central Utility Plant. Though Baxter will be reopened when the utility plant is complete, the Special Collections Library construction will continue for another year. According to the University See CLOSED, Page 3
S The Baxter Street detour greets new students arriving for orientation. It is just one of many examples of the transformative projects taking place all over the campus.

S The State Botanical Gardens are just one of the proposed program takens off the chopping block. However, other cuts may come.
TUITION: Adams raises costs to hire new staff ¢ From Page 1 Tuition Plan, and new students in summer 2010 and beyond — will continue to pay a special institutional fee as a means to help maintain academic quality in the face of significant reductions to the University System’s budget for fiscal year 2011. Programs such as Georgia 4-H and The State Botanical Garden, which were originally slated to be cut entirely, will remain a part of the University, though internal cuts might have to be made, Adams said. “We did not make those proposals as cuts, and we would never have proposed them, but we were required to lay out cuts of that magnitude and there was simply no way we could do what we were asked to do otherwise,” he said. Maggie Kilgo, one of only a smattering of University students present at the meeting, questioned where additional funds could be found to further close the budget gap between fiscal years 2010 and 2011. “Why is it that, given our budgetary allocations, it seems to be that high pay of administration and faculty seems to be a higher priority than other things like the quality of my education?” she asked, referencing Adams’ pay as being one of the highest amongst the University’s peer institutions. Adams said he did not believe Kilgo’s numbers were correct and that he was not even the highest paid college president in Georgia. Adams said no money from budget A will be used to offset cuts to budget B, and said he hopes the tuition increase will fill most of the gap. He also announced that as of now, there were no furlough days set in the budget. “My best judgment is that — barring some completely unforeseen set of circumstances — these are the numbers we will operate at in 2011,” Adams said.

Though the University is home to the Georgia Museum of Natural History, this is not the only place where students can find Georgia history on campus. The Hargrett Rare Book and Manuscript Library, located on the third floor of the main library, is playing host to its annual natural history exhibit. This year’s exhibit features documents by and about the engineer James W. Woodruff Sr. The exhibit will enjoy its sixth year at the University, commemorating the life and works of the man known as “the Father of the Chattahoochee.” “We drive by the river all the time, but we don’t see the nooks and crannies and the sun on the water,” Mary Brooks, Hargrett’s director emerita, said. The many books, newspapers and plaques put on display to present Woodruff to the public present him as a man deeply opposed to waste, whether it is pollution or wasted effort. Woodruff worked to promote a beautiful, useful and navigable Chattahoochee River everyone could enjoy. His efforts paid off, as he was appointed the head of the A p a l a c h i c o l a Chattahoochee-Flint Project, placing dams all along the Chattahoochee to harness its hydroelectric power and open it up to naturalists and tourists. Brooks said the exhibit has “a focus on tourism, recreation and industry” and is especially important to today’s students in the face of the Gulf oil spill. Woodruff shares the space with the husband and wife team of Joe and Monica Cook. The environmentally conscious Cooks published “River Song: A Journey down the Chattahooche and Apalachicola River,” a photographic account of their 1995 kayak trip down the two rivers. The Cooks used the book as an opportunity to appeal to a younger generation in the name of protecting the planet. The Cooks bring a lighter side to the exhibit with hand-drawn doodles and thank-you cards from young students who learned something from their book when the Cooks took their book on an education tour around America. Brooks said if those students were 10-year-olds at the time they wrote the letters, they could be in college now. The library administration arrived at their decision to make the Woodruff exhibit a regular display after the James Woodruff Foundation expressed interest. The Hargrett Library relies on support from the University for the funding that goes into its staff, supplies and administration, but this is not the only source of funding for the library, said Toby Graham, director of the Hargrett Library. “We strive for a mix of state and private support,” Graham said. The Hargrett Library also plays host to historical photographs, the University archives – which span more than two centuries – and a rotating schedule of events meant to illuminate students on some of the lesser known sides of life.

Career Center caters to alumni By PATRICK HOOPER THE RED & BLACK They have donned caps and gowns, walked across stages and traipsed under the hallowed Arch. Four years of education may be under their belts, but many University alumni are still unsure of what they want to do when they grow up. Enter the Alumni Career Services’ fifth annual career fair, which caters exclusively to the University’s graduate population, who do not have the luxury of attending University career fairs. “As the economy changed, a lot of alumni started coming back to their alma mater,” said Nicole Lechene, associate administrative director at the University Career
Center. Lechene, who is also the director of Alumni Career Services, oversaw this year’s event. Wednesday’s fair will draw participants from all walks of life, including insurance giant Allstate, the Central Intelligence Agency, global banking powerhouse Wells Fargo and the Secret Service. The fair is more than just a chance to meet potential employers in person. Alumni must preregister on DAWGLink, the Career Center’s job search website, in order to attend. Those who cannot attend may submit their résumés to the Alumni Résumé Book hosted on DAWGLink. The fairs have been successful in the past,
ALUMNI CAREER FAIR When: Wednesday, June 9, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Where: Gwinnet Center Ballroom in Duluth, Ga. Cost: Free to attendees who preregister drawing more than 650 attendees and 800 submitted résumés in 2009. The right résumé and tie go a long way in helping job seekers, but it’s an applicant’s presence and personality that sometimes seal the deal. “We see most of our alumni in metro Atlanta,” Lechene said. She said more than a quarter of University alums migrate to the state’s capital after graduation.
This fact drew in-state employers such as iPartners, an Atlanta-based software sevice company, and the Georgia Professional Standards Commission to the fair. “We’re a small company,” said Deb Carmody, co-founder and vice president of customer service for iPartners. “We have 16 employees.” Carmody said this was the first time iPartners chose to attend the fair and reach out to alumni. She said iPartners considered extending opportunities to undergraduates in the future, but in the meantime, job-hungry alumni need two things if they want to impress. “Compatibility and capability are very important to us,” Carmody said.

S Heavy machinery sprouts up all over campus as the University moves toward newer buildings. Hull Street remains closed until further notice.
CLOSED: Campus renovations make navigation a headache ¢ From Page 1 Architects website, the Special Collections Library will be 115,000 square feet when it opens in fall 2011 and will house the Richard B. Russell Library for Political Research and Studies, the Walter J. Brown Media Archive and Peabody Awards Collection and the Hargrett Rare Book and Manuscript Library. The project is being funded by almost $47 million from state general obligation bonds and private donations. As academically-related construction continues on one side of the Tate Center, athletic construction dominates on the other as crews rush to finish Reed Alley before the start of football season. Reed Alley is the name for the walking space between Sanford Stadium and Memorial and Reed Halls. It is being converted into an outdoor space for pedestrians. This renovated area will become Reed Plaza, with new concession stands and restrooms for the stadium. The University Athletic Association estimated the project will be done Sept. 3 and open for its debut this football season. Football fans who walk through North Campus to see the new face of Sanford Stadium will get to see the renovated face of New College as well.
New College is getting a complete makeover inside and out, with everything from the roof to windows being replaced. Sidewalks around the building have been closed, as has the lawn area between New College and the Chapel, and will remain so until the building reopens later this month. Additional renovations are taking place on East and South Campuses, as

DELIVERY DRIVER FOR JASON’S DELI
Stegeman Coliseum gets a glass coat and sprinkler system, and Building 1516 makes its mark on the East Campus horizon. The sidewalks are closed to the north and south sides of Stegeman Coliseum as Choate Construction expands the concourse within the building and adds larger concession stands and new restrooms. Danny Sniff, the associate vice president for facilities planning for the University Architects, said
there are two main reasons for updating Sanford’s facade. “We wanted to give it a new look, with a glass wall around the outside, letting you see the old building with a new look,” Sniff said. “The second big reason is because we have desperately needed to renovate the bathrooms and concessions, but we are also adding a sprinkler system to the building for the safety of our patrons.” This construction is being funded by the University Athletic Association, which hopes to open the new building in November. Building 1516 will be part of Reed Community despite its location in East Campus Village. The dorm, which cost $49.7 million, will be open by the time school starts in August, but right now is causing headaches for drivers as construction has closed portions of roadways around the complex. “Campus is barely recognizable, and where there used to be a very large parking lot on Hull Street, there’s now a gaping hole in the ground. It’s really annoying having to drive around campus as opposed to through it,” said Nicholas Biddle, a delivery driver for Jason’s Deli. “You don’t realize how important campus roads are for Athens traffic until you don’t have them.”

PICK OF THE WEEK: CIRCULATORY SYSTEM
A blend of ear-catching sound and psychedelic melody will start your heart racing at the 40 Watt Saturday night. This trademark rock of Circulatory System is the brainchild of frontman Will Cullen Hart. Hart, a founding member of a collaborative group of musicians and bands — the iconic Elephant 6 — worked alongside the familiar acts Neutral Milk Hotel, The Apples in Stereo and Of Montreal. If name-dropping alone can’t convince you to come out, the music should. After an unintended eight-year hiatus, the band came rushing back and ended the suspense with its latest album, “Signal Morning,” released last September. The band will be hitting the stage with Yaal H’ush and Hot & Cold with The Eye Gate Light Show. Circulatory System gets the blood pumping for any Athens music fan and it’s our “can’t miss” pick of the week.

Art helps land trusts By JEN INGLES FOR THE RED & BLACK Art enthusiasts and nature lovers should make tracks to The State Botanical Gardens of Georgia Sunday for the opening of “Spirit of the Land,” an art exhibition and sale benefiting the conservation efforts of Athens Land Trust and Oconee River Land Trust. All featured artists live in northeast Georgia, and many of the pieces depict local landscapes. Nancy Stangle, executive director for Athens Land Trust, called the exhibition a “celebration of land and plants” as well as an opportunity for people to connect with and appreciate the beauty of northeast Georgia’s natural environment. Chris Wyrick, “Spirit of the Land” curator and owner of Mercury Art Works, said the exhibition is a good model because it benefits all parties involved in the project. The artists benefit from the sale of their work, the land trusts raise money to fund their conservation efforts and the event may draw new visitors to the
Spirit of the Land When: 1 p.m. June 6 Where: Botanical Gardens More Information: The sale will run from June 6 to June 26. Volunteers may contact: www.athenslandtrust.org. Cost: Free botanical gardens. While most works feature landscapes or botanical themes, one painting by Charlie Seagraves shows what Wyrick calls “a devastated landscape.” Seagraves is many things, including a painter, a veteran, a pacifist and a gardener. His life inspires his paintings, the subjects of which are often flowers. “I paint what I do,” Seagraves said. However, after watching a segment on television showing the bombing of a village landscape in Iraq, Seagraves said he felt inspired to do something different. “I was outraged,” he said. “They were playing classical music [over the broadcast] and that enraged me.” Seagraves said he does not try to evoke a specific response in the viewer with any of his paintings,

By CRISSINDA PONDER THE RED & BLACK Yoga is a technology of living. Meghan Madhavi Burke, founding director of the Sangha Yoga Studio, promotes this mentality and believes yoga transcends physical activity. “Yoga is not just about bending our bodies and stretching,” Burke said. In addition to offering more than 25 belly dancing, yoga and Pilates classes, Sangha also has yoga workshops open to the public. This weekend’s workshop, “At the Heart of It,” aims to delve into yoga as a way of life. “This workshop has a particular focus on belief systems and how they can be more deeply applied to the way we interact with the world around us,” said Josh McKay, studio manager. “We will be focusing on some of the larger concepts of yoga beyond the poses.” The philosophical practices to be discussed come from the ancient writings of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, a Hindu scripture serving as the foundation for the practice of yoga. One of the main foci of the workshop will be yoga ethics, known as yamas and niyamas. “The yamas and niyamas are practices,” said John Hawkins, the instructor who lead the workshop. “For example, one of the yamas is ahimsa, or the practice of nonviolence.” Hawkins, a former Athens resident and founder of The Yoga Behind the Yoga organization, has been teaching yoga for more than 12 years. He plans to generate discussion by posing questions for the participants about certain life issues. Deepening awareness is a key component to the workshop and to the overall practice of yoga. “We don’t usually take that time out with ourselves to contemplate certain bigger questions about what we believe,” McKay said. Sangha has been in Athens since 1992, but this Hawkins’ first year doing the workshop. “I wanted to bring the workshop to Athens to kick it off because I think it’s a great community,” Hawkins said.

including this one. For him, it is enough that someone stops and really looks at one of his paintings. Students interested in art history may want to catch a lecture by Paul Manoguerra, curator of American art at the Georgia Museum of Art. At 5:30 p.m. June 17 at the Botanical Gardens, Manoguerra will discuss works from GMOA’s permanent collection by artists of the Hudson River school, such as John Frederick Kensett and Albert Bierstadt. Manoguerra said many of these artists indirectly influenced the early conservation movement in America by painting places such as Yellowstone. The exhibition will culminate in a gala on the evening of June 26, which will include a silent auction. Works of art, however, will be available for purchase during the entire run of the exhibition. The gala will also feature wine tasting and performances by Tin Cup Prophet and Canopy Studios trapeze artists. Stangle said the group may still need volunteers
“Prince of Persia” Sand waterfalls are beautiful this time of year — just try not to fall off of one. Stunning visuals help create the only memorable scene from “Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time,” released on May 28. The movie, starring Jake Gyllenhaal as Dastan and Gemma Arterton as rival princess Tamina, is based on the 2003 video game of the same name. Film adaptations of video games have a history of being mediocre, both in execution and design, and “Prince of Persia” does not disappoint. The film kicks off with Dastan, a young orphan who shows amazing acrobatic abilities and courage in the face of adversity and who is adopted by the king as his son. This flimsy introduction to the characters gives the necessary backstory for the film to move forward, especially for those who
have not played the game. Dastan’s acrobatics are portrayed in movie as they are in the video game. This will keep fans of the game in their seats, but really just introduces the audience to Dastan as the “Prince of Persia,” a title repeated far too often in the film. The film then transitions to the present day, and the main premise of the film. Dastan, a now disgraced prince, obtains a dagger that controls the sands of time. He teams up with Tamina to keep the dagger from falling into the wrong hands. Gyllenhaal’s performance is not of a necessarily poor caliber, but his terrible accent does detract from viewers’ involvement in the film. The accent is almost comical, as it does not work in the deeply dramatic situations that permeate the film. The film also makes taxation jokes related to America’s political situation, which have no bearing on the outcome of the movie. The romance between Dastan and Tamina is also inconsequential and feels awkward. In films, nonspoken elements can be the most powerful, but “Prince of Persia” ignores this trait. The dialogue is often cheesy and most is a stepping stone between action sequences or a way of explaining that which the viewer could not discern themselves. The action sequences

can be fantastic at times, and — as with any Jerry Bruckheimer production — the visuals flourish on the screen. Only a few times did the cities seem computer-generated; the desert landscapes were marvelous for the eye to behold. Anyone who has played an action-adventure game will be right at home with the visual style of “Prince of Persia.” The camera focuses on elements that are important for achieving an objective in the scene, as if there are clues being given on how it can be obtained. Being a film, however, it cannot give the viewer choices as to what occurs; it can only clue them in on what is important and hope the significance is readily apparent. Fans of the series might appreciate the action sequences, but because the movie strays so far from the narrative of the game, they could also be the biggest detractors. Verdict: Though “Prince of Persia” is not a great film by any standards — as thrills are few and far between and do not make up for the lack of plot — it is one of the better game-to-screen adaptations. There are worse movies out there, but action junkies would be better suited finding another option. — Auryn Baruch

British Petroleum’s deepwater horror Efforts to plug spill seem better suited to the playground than the planet It has been 46 days since the Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded off the coast of Louisiana. While marking a disastrous event of epic proportions and—finally—sparking overdue debates and discussions surrounding our country’s dirtiest addiction, it seems that the average American knows nothing but the slightest and slipperiest details surrounding the event, who is to blame, and how it is to be fixed. As British Petroleum and federal officials scramble to mend perhaps their most grievous mistake, failed ideas to halt the gushing oil have resembled a child’s backyard science project: shoving mud into the broken pipe, capping it with various domes — and now — possibly nuking the well to seal it shut. It seems these people have no experience with the technology of tampons, yet we still trust them going forward. Frightening, yes. Officials pledge that every resource is being tapped to curtail the ongoing disaster. In the past, the world’s best minds have accomplished amazing feats — pillaging Earth of its natural resources, landing people on the moon — while simultaneously managing to create seemingly redundant technology such as the iPad and continuing to advance warfare tactics. Yet global leaders, the world’s most powerful military and a global all-star scientific company cannot answer the simple question: Why aren’t we able to plug a hole in the ocean floor? The EPA even went knocking on director James Cameron’s door this week. Goodness, are we so inadequately prepared that we’re seeking help from a guy that spent a decade dreaming up a fake planet inhabited by bluecat-people-things? I guess so. Furthermore, what does this spill demonstrate about the state of humanity? Why have we ignored the damage and responsibility we, as oil addicts, have inflicted upon wildlife and the only home we shall ever know? This average American is just as confused as the poor, suffocating, oil-sucking shrimp. As the days continue to pass with no reasonable explanation or solution for the explosion —or, 46 days since Mother Nature said, screw you, human beings, and started her period— hopefully, other Americans will realize that our oil addiction is careening out of control. If global leaders continue to ignore the demand for alternative energy sources to meet our needs, we must change our needs, or risk taking giant leaps backward. We must begin to consider ourselves a part of a network of living things — including Earth — sharing the same living space. — Haley Temple for the editorial board

Sharing duties equally key for home life W omen are often stuck in a bind when it comes to getting married and starting a
family. The problem is that it’s hard to have both a family and a career because housework and childcare is still perceived as “women’s work.” Many women, who are married with children, are often subject to the double workload or second shift. Because women have traditionally been designated as “homemakers,” we are often expected to do housework regardless of whether or not we work full-time. I thought that things would have changed because there are more women than ever entering the workforce. Despite polls indicating that men and women believe things should be divided equally, studies have shown that women still do more household chores and child care on average than their husbands. “I think it’s grossly unfair but the younger generations of women are far less susceptible to it,” said Whitney Knight, a junior from Habersham. This perception is prejudice because household responsibilities should be a concern for both partners and not just the female ones. So why is it that we’re saying one thing and then doing another? It could be because traditionally men haven’t done housework and may not know what’s expected of them. “Men see housework as women’s work and consider themselves helping out,” said Linda Grant, a sociol-
“Often men do help with chores, but usually aren’t very good at cooking and cleaning so many women opt to do things themselves.” ogy professor. Grant also said that these types of situations are the norm but fairshare marriages are happier, and because of the second shift, many women have become more reluctant about marriage. “Women try hard to define the labor division as fair but still resent it and pull away from the situation,” said Grant. According to Grant, the outcome of that happening is not optimistic because we’ve already had a generation where both parents worked and there was not much of a shift at all. However, studies have shown that men are doing more housework and child care than their fathers. Also, people in general are doing less housework on average. Often, men do help with chores, but usually aren’t very good at cooking and cleaning so many women opt to do things themselves. This will easily create a wedge in the relationship once one partner
feels overwhelmed. Inequality in the home can be projected into inequality in the workplace. Grant said that the birth of the first child impels people toward the traditional division of labor, and having children places women on a “mommy track” where many women don’t get promoted because their employers view them as putting family before work. The division of household labor isn’t something couples normally talk about prior to making longterm commitments. It wasn’t something that I had thought about either when my fiancé and I made the decision to move in together. However, we soon realized that things needed to be divided equally because most of the work was only getting done by myself (and not very often). I am lucky because my partner is a feminist, and he didn’t want things to be unequal. We decided to divide everything up amongst each other. I clean the bathroom one week and he cleans it the next, I make dinner one night, and he makes it the next and when it came to cleaning the whole house we designated one day of the week and did it together as a team. Dividing up housework can cause complications in any relationship, and though most college students are not married or in domestic partnerships, it’s still crucial to consider outcomes of gendering household chores.
New fad bands kids together, leaving wallets stretched thin
very few years, a new fad arrives on the ‘consumer scene’ to capture the hearts of America’s youth and the wallets of their unsuspecting parents. While my childhood was equally filled with these come-and-go fads (Beanie Babies, Tomagotchi, Pokémon), I can’t help but feel that our trends had some point – an end goal or use. I’m sickened now because I feel companies have taken the treacheries of capitalism to all-new lows in the past few years, and American’s are falling for it hook, line and sinker. SillyBandz® are a brand of silicone rubber bands that are designed to resemble various shapes when they are not being worn, such as penguins, princesses and even musical instruments. While being worn, they look akin to a jumbled mess of rubber that anyone with a little time and a bag of rubber bands could have made. However, my issue is not directly with the SillyBandz® themselves, but their ridiculous price. When I was asked a few days ago to go pick up a pack of ‘Princess SillyBandz®’ for my daughter, I did not realize what I was getting myself into. After about an hour of shop-hopping at various stores for these must-have elastic products, I finally found a location that still had a pack. Success welled inside me as I promptly took my dollar out and handed it to the cashier, only to see the young woman point at the pack that was lying on the desk. My previous grin of glory for having finally found this high-demand product did not stand a chance against the bright-orange price tag that screamed $5.00. Needless to say, I refused to pay this price and headed back home. Before that day, I didn’t even know what SillyBandz® were. Once someone explained it to me, I was fairly confident that I was looking

Religion course not place to push faith
for something in a quarter machine. I was even prepared to pay $1.00, but not five times that amount! It is completely outrageous that this company expects anyone to pay $5.00 for twelve rubber bands. The crazy thing is, however, people do pay that much for them, and rarely do they stop at a single pack. Many websites report that in regards to the SillyBandz® phenomena, youth wear, on average, around five bands on each arm though some kids have as many as seventy-five to one-hundred! At the price that I was being asked to pay, a child with one-hundred of these stretchy wallet sores would pay roughly $40.00! Once again, it simply makes me sick that in a struggling economy, we’re spending our money on overpriced rubber bands. I hope that this trend ends soon, and people realize that SillyBandz® are exactly what their name implies – silly.
I want to comment on the practices of several professors in the religion department. Having received my undergraduate degree in historical religions, I want to say that three professors teaching three different religions felt it was their duty to make the students repeat the statements of faith for their particular religions. Now, according to the wellknown laws of this country, I should not be compelled to repeat a statement that, in essence, makes me a card carrying member of the religion it promotes. Any students attending such ridiculous classes should refuse immediately to quote any statement of faith and should further sue the religion department for forcing students to partake in a religious practice that is directly against the universities policies. Also, if you plan on attending graduate school for religion go somewhere else as the religion department here does not practice nondiscriminatory behavior in accepting grad students. It is funny how they claim you can get all sorts of jobs with a religion degree yet when you are about to graduate they all say there is almost no employment in the field of religion. I would advise all religion professors to get their proverbial houses in order and never ever require a student to quote a statement of faith that in so doing makes that student a follower of said religion. People have fought and died for our right to be free from such melodramatic b.s. and it is an infringement on any student’s rights as a citizen of the country.

I know it’s hot outside, but that doesn’t mean it has to be freezing on the inside
n my accounting class, the air conditioning was so cold, I was uncomfortable and distracted by it. I decided to start bringing a hoodie or something to class to help me deal with the cold. Then I remembered that I live in Georgia, and that the idea of having to bring warm clothing around with me as I sweat my way up and down the hills of campus is ridiculous.

This is especially important because of the current budget crisis. The University could stand to save massive amounts of money by making a small adjustment in temperature. Most recommendations for thermostat temperatures in warm months say to set it no lower than 78 degrees. I think that might be a little extreme for a learning environment, but

surely we would all survive in the 73-74 degree range. Even in just a single house, a small change in thermostat temperature can make a big difference in power bills. How much money would we save if we kept massive buildings like the SLC a few degrees warmer? And what if we turned off the AC completely at night, when no one is there anyway? How many jobs could we save?
Using less electricity isn’t only financially sound, it’s also better on the environment, since most of our energy comes from burning coal. At the very least, I shouldn’t have to dress like up like an Eskimo just to make it through Modern Philosophy.

S Sophomore Chelsey Gullickson ended Georgia’s 16-year NCAA singles title drought, winning at home in two sets over No. 2-ranked Jana Juricova of California.
No. 12 Gullickson wins NCAA title By JAMIE McDONOUGH FOR THE RED & BLACK For the past few weeks, the empty college town of Athens, Ga., was infiltrated by women’s tennis players from all over the country seeking to become the NCAA champion. It turns out the winner didn’t have to travel too far. Georgia’s Chelsey Gullickson took home medalist honors at the 2010 championships, pulling through a tightly contested second-set tiebreaker to beat No. 2 Jana Juricova of California 6-3, 7-6, (7) on May 31. Gullickson, a sophomore advertising major, was ranked No. 12. “I still can’t believe it, when she hit that swinging volley in the net, I thought, ‘Oh, my gosh, this is really happening,’” Gullickson said. “I have had a lot of ups and downs this season, but this is very exciting. The crowd was awesome. They got me super excited. I thought my serves and return game were sharp, and I tried to play smart and stay positive throughout the match.” Gullickson’s road to the national championship featured wins over the nation’s top players, including top-ranked Irina Falconi of Georgia Tech, fourth-ranked Hilary Barte and eighth-ranked Allie Will from Florida. Gullickson is the third Bulldog in school history to win an NCAA singles title, joining Lisa Spain, who
won in 1984 in Los Angeles, and Angela Lettiere, who won in 1994 in Athens. Gullickson concludes the year with a 30-8 record. Although tennis is Gullickson’s main focus, she enjoys many things any average University student would. “I love Transmetropolitan, Little Italy and East West,” Gullickson said. “I also love watching UGA baseball because of my brother.” Her brother played baseball at Clemson and her father, Bill Gullickson, was also an accomplished player on the diamond. A former Major League pitcher, Bill Gullickson compiled an 162-136 record in 14 seasons with the Expos, Reds, Yankees, Astros and Tigers in the 1980s and early 1990s. Chelsey’s mother, Sandy Gullickson, played college tennis at Western Kentucky. Following her win, Chelsey Gullickson took a short break from tennis to spend time at the lake. Throughout the summer she will continue to play tennis and take classes and, in July, compete in tournaments in hopes of qualifying for a wild card slot at the U.S. Open in August in New York. “I want to make a career in tennis,” she said. “I want to be able to do what my older sister, Carly, has done and follow in her footsteps.” Carly Gullickson, won the 2009
U.S. Open mixed doubles title and is on tour with the Women’s Tennis Association. Chelsey Gullickson grew up in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., with her five siblings. She trained at the Harold Solomon Tennis Institute throughout high school and competed in numerous tournaments around the world. In 2005, Gullickson won four International Tennis Federation junior titles and at her highest point was listed 76th in the ITF junior rankings. Gullickson’s biggest accomplishments before college were reaching the quarterfinals of the Australian Open juniors and the round of 16 at the Junior Wimbledon 2007. In 2008 she came to the University. After her freshman year, Gullickson was named the national rookie player of the year with a final ranking at No. 6, as well as Southeastern Conference freshman of the year. Following her dynamic NCAA win, Gullickson said Georgia head coach Jeff Wallace and assistant coach Frank Polito contributed significantly to her success. “It’s been a tough year, but through all the wins and losses, my coaches have been fully supportive both on and off the court,” she said. — Georgia Sports Information contributed to this report.

Team All-Americans this week for the second consecutive year. California’s coach, whose team squares off against Washington in the Pac-10 Conference, expressed uncertainty as to who will have the upper hand in the matchup. “I would give pitching, head and shoulders, to the University of Washington,” California head coach Diane Ninemire said. “I think [Danielle Lawrie] is just an awesome pitcher. She can be
unstoppable. Here at Georgia, hitting-wise, I think that the batters here can keep up with the power that the University of Washington has to offer. So I think it is going to be a great game.” Lawrie was named the USA Softball Collegiate Player of the Year this week, becoming only the second player to receive the honor multiple times. Lawrie, a senior, has thrown four no-hitters including three perfect games,
amassing a 40-3 record with a 1.00 ERA. She has a nation-best 24 shutouts. The WCWS will be aired on ESPN/ ESPN3.com. All of Georgia’s contests can also be heard on Athens Sports Radio 960 The Ref WRFC-AM and at georgiadogs.com. — Georgia Sports Information contributed to this report

Bulldogs wrap up season at NCAA Championships Men’s tennis The No. 11-seeded Georgia men’s tennis team saw its run in the NCAA Championships come to an end in the semifinals as the Bulldogs fell by a 4-1 score to second-seeded Tennessee May 24 at the Dan Magill Tennis Complex. The Bulldogs ended the season with an overall record of 21-8. Georgia moved to the tennis final four by beating Oklahoma and Florida.
Meanwhile, Georgia junior Javier Garrapiz was eliminated with a 7-5, 6-1 loss to Southern California’s Robert Farah in the Round of 32 of the NCAA Singles Championships May 27 at the Dan Magill Tennis Complex. Garrapiz finished his season with a team-best record of 33-18, matching his career high in wins. He was 5-0 in the NCAA team tournament and went on to advance to the Round of 32 singles with a win over Oklahoma’s Andrei Daescu
in the first round. Women’s tennis The Georgia sophomore tandem of Chelsey Gullickson and Nadja Gilchrist saw their NCAA Tournament run end in the semifinals, falling to the top-ranked Tennessee team of Caitlin Whoriskey and Natalie Pluskota, 6-1, 7-6, (11) at the Dan Magill Tennis Complex on May 30. The Gullickson and Gilchrist team ended
SPORTS NOTEBOOK the season with a record of 25-7. They earned AllAmerica honors by virtue of their seed in the NCAA Tournament along with reaching the semifinals. Track & Field The Georgia’s track and field teams had a total of 10 team members qualify for the NCAA Outdoor Championships in Eugene,
Ore., on June 9 through 12. The top 12 finishers in all events at the East Preliminary Round earned their shot at the NCAA meet. Maria Augutis is the first freshman to qualify for Georgia this year after hitting a mark measuring longer than 42 feet for the fourth straight meet. Augutis finished ninth and qualified for NCAAs after her sixth attempt was 42 feet, 8 inches. Sophomores Aaron Evans (800-meter run), Brian
Moore (javelin) and Nikola Lomnicka (hammer) joined graduate student Kat Majester (pole vault) and senior Israel Machovec (shot put) as the Bulldog qualifiers. Seniors Branislav Danis (hammer) and Bridget Lyons (10,000-meter) qualified and junior Cory Holman (decathlon) and freshman Lucie Osndraschkova (heptathlon) punched their tickets to the national meet with their scores at the Southeastern Conference Championships. Also, sophomore Torrin Lawrence, junior Baron Brown, sophomore Phillip Adams and senior Michael Proctor clocked a season-best 4x400 relay time of 3:08.26, but finished fifth in their heat and failed to advance to NCAAs. Women’s golf Georgia’s Marta Silva Zamora wrapped up the NCAA Women’s Golf Championships with a 1-under 71 in the final round May 28. The Georgia sophomore finished the 72-hole event tied for 33rd at 6-over 294. Silva Zamora finished the year with a 72.85 stroke average, which ranks second all-time in Georgia history behind only the 72.63 average of Taylor Leon in 2006-07. Silva Zamora notched 15 par-or-better scores in 34 rounds played in 2009-10. — Georgia Sports Information
