Over 300 people registered to learn CPR at Super CPR Day, held at Florida State University’s Dick Howser Baseball Stadium on Sunday, Nov. 14, from 5 to 7 p.m. “The idea for the event started last spring but the physical planning of the event has been from midto-late summer,” said FSU football team quarterback and President of Red Cross ’Noles Christian Ponder. “Every 32 seconds, someone in the U.S. dies from cardiac or respiratory related illness. If we prepare students with life-saving CPR skills, then more lives would be spared.” Those in attendance received life-saving CPR training, following American Red Cross guidelines, as well as receiving CPR certification upon passing the written and skills test. The event also had the goal of raising money for emergency aid. “The money could go

to providing clothes and a hotel stay for a family after a house fire, or help with funding emergency supplies in case of a disaster,” said Shannon Kid, an intern at the Capital Area Chapter of the American Red Cross. Registration began at 4 p.m., and the course and certification cost $20. CPR training began at 5 p.m. and ended at 7 p.m. Though Ponder has to balance his time between football and Red Cross Noles, he said that he has enjoyed a lot of support from other members in the organization, and he is passionate about the cause. “I have had a lot of help from Melanie (Vice President of Red Cross ’Noles) and a lot of volunteers,” said Ponder. “When you have a passion for something like this, you find the time to help out.” For more information, visit

recalled growing up in a place that seemed normal, as well as her initial shock when things took a downward turn. “1938 was Kristallnacht,” Ferris said. “[My friend] had a textile store, where they had the big balls of clothing material. On Kristallnacht, [the SS] went and broke all the windows. They went in there and brought all the clothing out and they put it in a big pile. They burned all of that. They

piled it up and I saw them burn it from my bedroom window.” While at the Kristallnacht Memorial Dinner in Tallahassee last week, Ferris spoke of her experiences, and urged the audience to never let something like that happen again. “I was 12 years-old and I’m 84 now and it’s still in my heart,” Ferris said at the event. “I’m so glad I’m here because God wants me to do something, and

maybe this is it, before I die.” Ferris explained that living in Germany during the Third Reich was difficult for many people. “You were just scared,” Ferris said. “You wouldn’t talk about it; nobody talked about it while it was happening and after it happened because you were scared to death that you were going to be next.” Ferris discussed how the rise of the Nazis to

power affected her relationship with one of her childhood friends. Her friend was a gypsy and was no longer allowed to attend school. After she left school, Ferris did not see her again for a very long time. Ferris was, however, finally able to track her down, and they kept up contact, mainly through mail, up until her friend’s death. see ferris 3

Kappa Delta and Girl Scouts team up for day of girl empowerment Anthony Murdock Contributing Writer

Girls from Kindergarten to 12th grade gathered on the Florida State University Union Green to build booths and take part in healthy media activities and “take action” games during FSU’s first “International Girls Day,” hosted by FSU Kappa Delta Sorority and the Girl Scout Council of the Florida Panhandle, Sunday, Nov. 14. The goal motivating the celebration was to counter media messages,

cultural stereotypes and young girls’ peer influences that tell girls how they should look and act. The celebration sought to show girls that they were unique, that they can exceed the bar of expectations society has set for them and that they should embrace their talents. There were many different activities at the event, including a face art booth, a zumba class, sumo wrestling and performances by the Tallahassee Girls Choir and local dance teams. Additionally, informational

booths were set up to help teach participants about the negative portrayals of women in the media. Farrah Hudson brought her seven-year-old daughter Alexandria to the event and mentioned that it was inspiring to see the mix of races present, and what Kappa Delta’s and GSCFP was doing for the community. “It makes you realize that the world isn’t all about what men can do but also what women can do, and half the time, do it better.” Hudson said. “International Girls

Day” is celebrated by girls across the country annually on Nov. 14. With the slogan, “She Can Do Anything,” the celebration encourages girls to make their dreams a reality. Grant and Community Coordinator for GSCPF Jocelyn Hayes said that young girls need events like this because they teach them to love and believe in themselves. “Once they know who they are, then they know they can stand up for themselves and have confidence,” Hayes said. Two Kappa Delta mem-

bers, Mary Catherine Inghan and Regan Cohen, ran an informational both that explained to girls that, with technology, the media can manipulate a photo of a girl into what they think we should consider beautiful. “We’re here to tell them what they see on television isn’t in real life,” Cohen said. Hayes also said that kappa Delta and GSCPF are working to make “International Girls Day” an annual event in Tallahassee. For more information, visit

HCC of Tallahassee presents culture week Club hosts events every day to celebrate Haitian community Kendal Kalish Staff Writer

The Haitian Cultural Club of Tallahassee (HCC) is currently hosting its HCC Week 2010 from Nov. 14 through Nov. 20. Whether participants are competing in the “Battle of Vertieres” interactive game night on Thursday or attending the banquet and after-party at The Roxy on Saturday, the organization has set up an array of events spanning the week-long celebration. Founded in 1988, the HCC invited students from Florida State University, Florida A&M University, Tallahassee Community College and other members of the Haitian community in Tallahassee to create unity among its members while participating in community service projects, helping fundraise for victims of

Come learn about the people, the music, the food, the history, the art, and the famous Haitian individuals. Come learn and help us with the different activities that we are involved with in helping our fallen country. Louis Dorce Jr. FSU Senior and Former HCC President

the earthquake and support other not-for-profit organizations. “HCC week is a great way to not only expose the Haitian culture to the Tallahassee community, but give us an opportunity to unite as one to serve people in need of a helping hand,” Vice President of the HCC and junior at FAMU Peterson Monestime said. “Our goal is to give back to the community and educate students and citizens about Haitian history.”

The week kicked off on Sunday with a church service at the Bethel Missionary Baptist Church, which was followed by a “Cultural Fusion Potluck” at the FSU Global Café, where students were encouraged to share their best dish. On Monday, the HCC traveled to Bainbridge, Ga., to give out packages of hygiene products to the Haitian migrant workers there. On Wednesday, Nov. 17, a fashion show to display

the beauty of the Haitian culture took place in FSU’s Miller Hall. The week will continue with a different event every night, from a “Bouillon Talent Show” on Friday, in which bouillon will be served after members display their talent on stage, to a cookout and Olympic games event at Tom Brown Park to finish off the week on Sunday. Louis Dorce Jr., FSU Senior and former HCC president, said organizing the event was daunt-

venue—and who’s going to pay. Prince William and Kate Middleton were sitting down with advisers Wednesday to begin planning the royal wedding that some Britons have

waited years to see—as the media settled in for months of juicy speculation. The second in line to the throne and his long-term girlfriend will marry next spring or summer, but they haven’t announced a date—some say May is likely, others August—or a venue.

Westminster Abbey or St. Paul’s Cathedral, where William’s parents Prince Charles and Princess Diana married in 1981, are considered the front-runners. A royal spokesman said the couple would be closely involved in organizing all the details. Palace officials said

only that the wedding would be held in London. It was too early to estimate its cost or how much the taxpayer will have to stump up—a touchy issue at a time of widespread budget cuts and austerity measures across Britain.

Theta Chi started preparing for the event at the end of the summer. “We started planning this at the end of July, trying to get things together and figure out how we’re going to do it,” Bennett said. “It’s a big event.” Even though the vast majority of the brothers did not know anything about cheerleading, Bennett said they were extremely helpful and hardworking throughout the entire planning process. “They were here; they

were right behind me,” Bennett said. “They were trying to learn about cheerleading as much as they could.” Even though this was the first year that Theta Chi hosted Cheers for Charity, the event was not new to FSU’s campus. Phi Gamma Delta fraternity hosted the event in previous years, but could not continue sponsoring the event due to a recent suspension. “We were very hesitant at first, but when [we] got the clear from Greek

life, discussed it with IFC and talked to our advisors we decided it would be a good idea and hit the ground running,” event host Greg Abdalla said. “I really think they enjoyed it and like being back in the Leon County Civic Center.” One challenge Theta Chi faced was taking an event previously hosted by another fraternity and making it their own. Bennett’s goal was to make Cheers for Charity similar to any other competitive cheerlead-

ing event. “I wanted to make it like a competition I had been to,” Bennett said. “I tried to replicate that as much as possible. There were a few hiccups, but it was our first time. I think we did really well.” Theta Chi hopes to continue hosting the event in years to come. “I just want to thank all the sororities for participating and giving it their all,” Bennett said. “The only thing we can go do is go bigger and better next year.”

NEWSBRIEFS World William, Kate plan royal wedding LONDON (AP)—Now it’s all about the details: The dress, the date, the

ing at times, but as long as one more individual is reached to care about Haiti, it was worth it. “Come learn about the people, the music, the food, the history, the art and the famous Haitian individuals,” Dorce said. “Come learn and help us with the different activities that we are involved with in helping our fallen country.” The HCC has approximately 1,500 members and alumni. To receive more information about the club’s events and a complete itinerary of the HCC Week 2010, search “Haitiancc” on Facebook to visit their fan page, or send an e-mail to Haitiancc@ “You do not have to be Haitian to join the club,” Monestime said. “We are just looking for people who are willing to work, get their hands dirty and have an open mind.”

3 ‘Shares the Love’

Free online company pledges to help on-campus organizations raise charity funds Ana Rebecca Rodriguez

Assistant News Editor As the cost of education increases and the availability of funding decreases, students across the nation report that they have had to cut back on extra-curricular spending, including their contributions to charitable causes. According to the American Association of Fundraising Council, the amount of money donated to charities decreased by $11.4 billion in the last year alone. In response, companies such as MyEdu, a free online service that aims to improve student success, are finding ways to help students remain on track in school and still be able to help out those in need. MyEdu’s ongoing “Share the Love” campaign pledg-

es that, for every student who creates a free account on MyEdu through an organization’s online link, they will donate $1 to that respective organization. “Tough times call for new, innovative ways for college student groups to raise money,” MyEdu Digital Marketing Manager April Bennett said. “That’s exactly why we are giving donations to any and all student organizations— it’s really cool to be able to lend a helping hand.” Inspired by his experiences in student organizations during his college years, MyEdu co-founder Chris Chilek helped create the “Share the Love” campaign as a way to aid student organizations in raising money. “I was probably in half a dozen or more student organizations when I was in school, and it seems like

You could think of us like the Google of education. Chris Chilek MyEdu Co-founder

we were always scrambling to raise money for something,” Chilek said. With budget cuts in effect at universities across the nation, on-campus organizations continually experience potentially detrimental financial setbacks. Aware of these setbacks, Chilek and fellow MyEdu team members felt the need to extend a helping hand, resulting in the “Share the Love” campaign. “We found that even the budgets of the schools had been cut to some extent, so these organizations

needed to find new ways to raise money,” Chilek explained. “Obviously, if MyEdu can help students get better grades, do better in their degrees and simultaneously help organizations raise money for these really great charities and philanthropic events, then I think it comes out as a win-win for everybody.” Originally founded as Pick-A-Prof in 2008 by Chilek, Michael Crosno and John Cunningham, the company transitioned to MyEdu in the summer of 2009 and later launched

data and beta applications in January 2010. Since its inception, 1 million student users have used MyEdu to further their success in college. While Pick-A-Prof allowed numerous students to browse professors through their server and plan their semester schedules accordingly, the team decided to expand on the number of things they could do to benefit students. At MyEdu, students are able to view what classes are required according to their major, use tools that help them effectively map out class schedules, browse professor ratings, look over friends’ schedules and check out textbook requirements before purchasing them directly from the site. “We realized that there was more that we could

do to help students and we expanded our set of services and the information that we collect,” Chilek said. “Of course, we are thrilled to be able to provide it all free to students. You could think of us like the Google of education. We have more information about all of the degrees, sections, dates, times and professors than anyone.” The three tools MyEdu provides have proven to increase student success. According to Chilek, 93 percent of students who use MyEdu have a 3.0 or above GPA and remain twice as likely to graduate on time when compared to the national average. Organizations interested in raising money through the “Share the Love” campaign must register before Dec. 15 at www.myedu. com/giving-back/studentorganizations.

ferris from 1 “The SS were supposed to meet in my hometown for good old camaraderie,” Ferris said. “The gypsies got wind of it, and they stood outside where the meeting was and the ones that were recognized from the concentration camps were beaten up.” Though the war caused many tragedies, Ferris discussed how she met and fell in love with her

current husband, Peter Ferris, during this time. Ferris was a hairdresser in Germany and worked on the American Air Force base there. She had a customer who was married to her nowhusband’s boss. “I didn’t want to go out with an American, but he was a nice guy,” Ferris said. “So, we went to a movie, and for about a

year we were just friends. I took him and his buddies to the opera, and when we first came over [to the United States], I saw a sign that said ‘Grand Ole Opry’ and I said, ‘Pete, let’s go!’ and he said, ‘I don’t think you want to go there.’” When Peter Ferris returned stateside, Helene came with him, and started working as a hairdresser alongside her husband.

Some customers asked her what it was like to live in Germany during the war. “We didn’t talk about it,” said Ferris. “Nobody talked about it. I had customers in the early ’60s who would ask me, ‘Were you over there when the war was happening?’ and I would say, ‘Yes.’ ‘Well, how was that?’ and I would try to tell them and

Florida speeds up transportation High-speed rail line plans announced to run between Orlando,Tampa Courtney Rolle Staff Writer

Plans to build a highspeed rail line to run from Tampa to Orlando were recently announced in Washington, D.C. The U.S. Department of Transportation will award $800 million to Florida for this project, which will be the first of its kind in America. In January of this year, President Barack Obama planned to grant $1.25 billion for the building of the high-speed rail line. This grant, plus the $800 million means that Florida only needs a projected

$300 million more from the federal government to sufficiently fund the construction of the rail. These funds are expected to come next year. A high-speed railway stretching from Tampa to Orlando will be a lifechanging addition for Florida State University student Laquisha Melton, who is also a resident of Tampa. Melton said she anticipates the arrival of this project. “Having this high-speed railway could definitely change travel for me,” Melton said. “I have a lot of family in the Orlando area. Maybe I can go and

It’ll be a nice change from driving everywhere and might help them out a lot more so they don’t have to worry about parking and getting useless tickets. Ashley Albanese FSU student

visit them more often now.” According to its website, the high-speed railway is

scheduled for completion in 2015. It will be America’s first high-speed railway. These

trains can travel at least 168 miles per hour, cutting the time it would take to drive the distance in half. The railway station will accommodate its riders by providing parking, rental cars and other commuting transit connections at stops. Ashley Albanese, another FSU student, is a Gainesville native, but still has a firm opinion on the railway as it pertains to her peers: She hopes it will help make commuting easier. “It’ll be a nice change from driving everywhere and might help them out a lot more so they don’t

have to worry about parking and getting useless tickets,” Albanese said. Aside from fast travel accommodations, this railway will also create jobs for many people. It will provide approximately 23,000 job-years of construction jobs, and 48,000 job-years of spin-off employment. The Department of Transportation has also begun plans to build a high-speed railway stretching from Miami to Orlando. For more information on America’s first highspeed railway, visit the official website at www.

President Eric Barron is planning to name an interim replacement this week for longtime Provost Larry Abele, who announced in September that he is retiring at the end of the semester. Barron wasn’t sure initially if FSU would be able to find a new provost by January, when the spring term gets under way. It’s clear now, however, that an interim is inevitable, Barron said. The interim provost will be a member of FSU’s faculty, Barron added. The provost, who also serves as vice president for academic affairs, is the second-most important position at the university. A 16-member search committee, led by Don Gibson, dean of the College of Music, held an organizational meeting last week and heard from representatives with WittKieffer, the firm assisting in the process. Its unlikely prospective candidates will be identified and brought in for interviews before late February. Barron said the next provost could come from within FSU.

partnerships among the 11 universities with endeavors designed to create jobs. Its primary focus this year was in three areas: engineering, health and science. The Board of Governors selected 31 projects from 93 peer-reviewed applications. University of Florida was the big winner. It is receiving $2.45 million for 10 different projects, most of which involve other universities. Florida State received $1.3 million for seven projects, while Florida A&M netted $450,000 for two projects.

news briefs from 2 Israel OKs pullout from Lebanon border village GHAJAR, Golan Heights (AP)—Israel on Wednesday approved the withdrawal of troops from the northern half of a village that straddles the border with Lebanon—a step that would end its four-year presence in the volatile area. The pullout, expected to take place in the coming weeks, would resolve a key dispute between the two countries that has simmered since Israel reoccupied northern Ghajar during the war with Lebanese Hezbollah militants in 2006. In a statement, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office said the Security Cabinet, a decision-making group of senior government ministers, had approved the pullout. It said Israeli diplomats would work with the U.N. peacekeeping force that patrols the border zone in southern Lebanon to make final arrangements. Israel wants to be sure that Hezbollah— and its arsenal of rockets and other weapons—is kept out of the village. Netanyahu presented the plan last week to U.N. Secretary-General Ban Kimoon in New York. Thousands march in Athens for revolt anniversary ATHENS, Greece (AP)—More than 10,000 demonstrators marched through central Athens to the U.S. Embassy on Wednesday to mark the anniversary of a 1973 student uprising against the military dictatorship then ruling Greece. Minor clashes broke out when stone-throwing youths attacked riot police, who responded with tear gas and stun grenades. No injuries or arrests were immediately reported. More than 6,000 police were deployed in the capital, and roads along the demonstration route were blocked off, as anarchists often take advantage of Nov. 17 marches to attack police and damage shops and banks. With Greece in the midst of a severe financial crisis that has seen the government impose strict cost-cutting measures, this year’s demonstration was taking on an anti-austerity plan flavor, with protesters holding banners bearing slogans against the International Monetary Fund and European Union.

Nation Slaying of publicist baffles police, Hollywood BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP)—A late-night shooting that left a prominent Beverly Hills publicist dead in her Mercedes on Sunset Boulevard has become a mystery straight out of one of the movies she promoted. Ronni Chasen, a pub-

licist and woman-abouttown, was gunned down Tuesday after attending the premiere of the new Cher film Burlesque, whose soundtrack she was pushing for an Oscar nomination, according to the trade publication Variety. She also was working with 20th Century Fox on a supporting actor Oscar campaign for Michael Douglas in Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps, according to Allen Berry, a publicist for the actor. She was shot in the chest several times in the attack that sent her luxury car careening into a light post. Police had no motive or suspects and said no threats had been reported against the 64-year-old Chasen. The mystery deepened later in the day when police seized computers from her firm, Chasen and Co. Teen accused in Iowa shootings was on probation DES MOINES, Iowa (AP)—A teenager accused of killing two clerks at different convenience stores in northern Iowa had previous run-ins with police in his suburban Minneapolis hometown and was on probation for theft. Michael Richard Swanson, a 17-year-old from St. Louis Park, Minn., was charged Tuesday as an adult with two counts each of first-degree murder and first-degree robbery in slayings in Kossuth and Humboldt counties. Authorities accuse Swanson of walking into two convenience stores Monday night wearing a ski mask, demanding cash and in one case cigarettes. They say he shot the clerks even after they complied with his demands. Swanson has just been

released from the Hennepin County Home School after serving more than 100 days for a felony motor vehicle theft charge to which he pleaded guilty in July, Marinan said. As part of his release, he was put on probation for two years. BP deep-cleaning Gulf beaches amid new worries ORANGE BEACH, Ala. (AP)—What’s typically a beautiful, quiet stretch of beach in the fall now resembles a construction site. Bulldozers and yellow dump trucks shake the ground; a giant sifting machine spits clean sand out one end, tar balls out another. With its Macondo well dead and few visitors on the coast during the offseason, BP has launched its biggest push yet to deepclean the tourist beaches that were coated with crude during the worst of the Gulf oil spill. Machines are digging down into the sand to remove buried tar mats left from the Deepwater Horizon disaster. The work is getting mixed reviews. Many are anxious to see the beaches cleaned as quickly as possible by whatever means are available. Others say BP may be making matters worse by bringing heavy equipment onto beaches and spreading the petroleum stain. Singer Wayne Newton wants to open house to world LAS VEGAS (AP)— Wayne Newton’s Las Vegas estate is a lavish wonderland complete with South African penguins, sweeping crystal staircases and a memorabilia collection to make a celebrity junkie salivate: a Frank Sinatra champagne glass, Nat King

Cole’s watch, Steve McQueen’s Rolls-Royce and a Johnny Cash guitar. Newton said the estate is so resplendent that he wants to open his home to the public and turn it into a tourist attraction, in a project some have dubbed Graceland West. But Newton’s neighbors are fighting the effort. They are disturbed by the idea of noisy tour buses, unyielding traffic and inane gift shops flooding their affluent neighborhood of ranches and mansions just six miles from the Las Vegas Strip. Critics circulated a petition and have begged the Clark County Commission to veto Newton’s proposed construction when it is scheduled to meet Wednesday in Las Vegas. Ohio zoo acquires daughter of late longest snake COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP)—An Ohio zoo says a new resident has big snakeskin shoes to fill. Weeks after announcing the death of the longest snake in captivity, the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium said Wednesday it has acquired the python’s smaller daughter. The 24-foot, 18-year-old snake named Fluffy died Oct. 27 of an apparent tumor. The zoo’s new snake is 12 years old, and 6 feet shorter than her mother. The zoo says in a statement that the daughter arrived Tuesday from the same private breeder who sold Fluffy to the zoo in 2007.

Iron & Wine returns home FSU alum Samuel Beam to perform at The Moon Nov. 19

Staff Writer

Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne #6 ($3.99) The final chapter in Grant Morrison’s six-part Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne is a difficult read. It takes time to decipher, which is par for the course with Morrison. Furthermore, the final tale of how Wayne returns to his rightful place as the man behind the Batman mask is complicated almost to the point of distraction. Most readers will fall into two classic camps: They will either love it or hate it. Be warned. The issue is filled with are a plethora of high concepts—self-aware ideas being one—that read a lot like gibberish. But the story can be simplified. This is Batman fighting the god-like Darkseid with his most powerful weapon—his intellect. There’s a lot to be said about Batman’s ability to fight, but his origins are as a detective with a keen mind. His quick machinations are on full display, and they are enthralling to piece together—if you’re willing to expend some brain matter to do so. Still, if readers aren’t at least cursory aware of Morrison’s recently ended run on Batman and Robin and Final Crisis, there will be confusion. In short, it’s definitely worth the read, but you might need to call in a detective to put the pieces together.

After a somewhat accidental “free-to-play” weekend back in September, Developer Notch’s sandbox-survival masterpiece, Minecraft, has become the indie game sensation that’s been sweeping the nation. While the $15 game boasts over 1,640,000 registered users and 520,000 purchases, what’s really impressive is that it isn’t even a complete game; rather, it hasn’t even made it out of the alpha stage of development.

Joanna Newsom played an intimate show at The Moon on Monday, Nov. 15, as a part of Seven Days of Opening Nights.

This past Monday, Nov. 15, as a part of FSU’s annual Seven Days of Opening Nights Festival, The Moon played host to indie-folk musician Joanna Newsom. The acclaimed harpist was backed by drummer and percussionist Neil Morgan, who also served as Newsom’s opening act, two violin-

ists and a trombonist, all led by Ryan Francesconi, who played guitar(s), banjo, recorder and arranged and conducted Newsom’s latest album, her third, Have One on Me. The album in question has also boosted Newsom to new heights of popularity—which became fairly obvious by the turnout at Monday’s performance. The Moon’s usual, sizeable dance floor was, instead, filled with folding chairs and, by the time Newsom walked onstage with her band, not a single one was empty. After applause and an inevitable “I love you!” from a fan, the crowd be-

Pro-BMX rider puts a new spin on tailgating Champion flatland rider goes for a ride around campus

Agata Wlodarczyk Arts & Life Editor

This past weekend, as tombs of people gathered outside Doak Campbell Stadium for the latest Florida State football game, the Phi Delta Theta fraternity was putting a new spin on tailgating, literally. The fraternity’s tailgate, sponsored by Red Bull, included a demo by professional BMX flatland biker Terry Adams. “What I do is called flatland BMX, and it’s basically like the artistic side of BMX riding,” Adams said. “There’s the

guys that do the jumps and the guys [who] ride on dirt jumps and I’m basically doing flat tricks on the ground […] The best way to describe it is like break-dancing on a bike.” Thanks to sponsors like Red Bull, Adams is able to tour the country showcasing his skills on college campuses nationwide. “For Red Bull, I probably do about 60 to 80 appearances a year,” Adams said. “[Shows like this] are really chill and relaxed and it’s just easy I guess. It’s just more or less hanging out with students, mingling, telling people about what I do.” Adams was first introduced to flatland around the age of 10, when he happened upon a video of a group of guys showcasing the sport. Though

it seemed impossible at the time, Adams, now 27, knew this was what he wanted to do. “If you look at something that looks so crazy when you’re that young, that looks impossible, [then] you really want to do it,” Adams said. “I was looking at it and I really didn’t understand it, but I just knew that somehow I wanted to do it one day.” Adams began practicing with kids in his neighborhood, but after many of them fell off the proverbial wagon, Adams kept at it, finding a new crew and practicing at his own pace. “I guess the cool thing about really any form of BMX is that there’s [sic] no rules,” Adams said. “It’s not like a traditional see Rider 6

Dancing days are here again

‘Days of Dance’ showcases performances from FSU’s Department of Dance David J. Cross Dance student Hannah Barnard doesn’t have an exact story for the happenings of her latest work. Fortunately, the Florida State University junior is fine with that. “There are definitely interactions between characters, but those are open to interpretations,” Barnard said. “I want the audience to interpret it however they see it. I want the number of meanings to be as many as the number of people who see it.” Barnard’s piece, “Where Did that Leg Come From?” will be part of FSU’s Department of Dance’s annual “Days of Dance” event that will take place Nov. 16 through Nov. 20. The multi-day event will contain choreography by undergraduate and graduate students, as well as faculty. Bernard said the concepts behind her piece were many, and included her fascination with contortionism, the complexity of human nature and multiple-human sculptures where limbs are difficult to track to

their owners. “I think that grew into this idea that humans can be very passionate, emotional creatures, but they can also be very rhythmic, straightforward and mechanical objects,” Bernard said. She added that much of her piece relies on disparate and shocking movements. “It’s quirky with a lot of personality,” Bernard said. “I see it as an explosion of personality. There are a lot of surprises.” Anthony Morgan, a professor of dance and artistic director, said the “Days of Dance” represents some of the best student work from throughout the semester, and allows the students to display their efforts to a large audience. “This has been the highlight of the semester, working with my dancers and working with this piece of art,” Bernard said. “I’ve choreographed pieces before, but never in his capacity, never with this level of professionalism and adjudication.” “Days of Dance” will entail two separate programs that will run about

an hour each and alternate days. Program “A” will run at 8 p.m. on Nov. 16, 18 and 20. Program “B” runs at 8 p.m. on Nov. 17 and 19, and at 2 p.m., on Nov. 20. All shows will be held in the Nancy Smith Fichter Dance Theatre located in Montgomery Hall. Because there are about 20 pieces that will be preformed, there will be a myriad of styles, though most will be contemporary dance. “There is a range and accessibility,” Morgan said. “If you don’t get or don’t like one piece—for whatever reason—it’s going to be over in about eight minutes.” Program “A” will include faculty member Tim Glenn’s “aXis” as well as a Brittany Grimm’s “A Wild and Distant Shore,” which explores the ocean’s untamed coasts. Morgan said one of the highlights of Program “B” would be Master of Fine Arts candidate Lauren Slone’s “Her Armor,” a rumination on the poetry of St. Theresa of Lisiexu. In an e-mail, Slone said her piece was inspired by

ing his story-like lyrics. The following year, Beam released The Sea & the Rhythm EP, featuring five previously homerecorded songs similar to his debut album. Beam followed up this release with his second full-length, Our Endless Numbered Days, which included new members and a slightly different sound. With three releases to his name, the professorturned-musician’s songs quietly began making

rounds on the Internet and among underground crowds before receiving a major breakthrough after his stripped down, acoustic cover “Such Great Heights” (originally by The Postal Service) was featured on the soundtrack of 2004’s Garden State. The indie drama and its accompanying soundtrack quickly garnered legions of fans and propelled Beam’s popularity. Iron & Wine has since released In the Reins,

(a combined effort with Calexico) in 2005, Woman King EP in 2006, two live recordings, a third full-length, The Shepherd’s Dog, in 2007 and a double-disc/triple-LP, Around the Well, in 2009. Having recently left Sub Pop Records, the current Austin, Texas, resident and additional Iron & Wine members will release their fourth fulllength, Kiss Each Other Clean, in January 2011 via Warner Bros. Records.

azine, the widely popular art, music and literature journal, who hand-picked a track to be featured in a music compilation by the Yeti. Not long after, the song caught the attention of Jonathan Poneman, coowner of indie stalwart label Sub Pop Records, who contacted Beam and offered him a record deal. Two months later, Beam mailed two homemade full-length albums to Poneman. Though Poneman originally wanted to release both, he de-

cided to size the songs down into one, 12-track album instead. In 2002, Beam’s debut, The Creek Drank the Cradle, was met with critical acclaim for his lo-fi, acoustic ballads, evocative lyrics and darker folk and bluegrass elements.Beam’s upbringing in the quiet suburbs of South Carolina influenced the backwoods folk-rock sound and lyrics that speak of a quaint, laidback lifestyle.

Rider from 5 sport. I kind of learned at my own rate, just practicing as much as I could. Obviously I had other goals. The kids who did it in my neighborhood kind of just did it as a hobby; I kind of had something else in mind: It was to be a professional and make a living from it. I just stuck with it and kept the dream alive.” For Adams, the hard work has paid off. Known by many of his peers as “the ambassa-

dor of flatland,” Adams has won multiple awards for his talents behind the wheel (or on top of it, as it were) including a first place finish at the 2008 BMX Games in Sydney, Australia, and a gold medal at the 2005 X Games. Though Adams’ in-it-towin-it attitude has served him well in the sport, firstplace finishes are not the only perk of the job. “[I enjoy] meeting so many different people,” Adams said. “I can go to

Japan and don’t have to worry about getting a hotel. There’s so may riders over there; I can stay with them as long as I want. [I can] go anywhere in Europe and do the same thing, and go anywhere in the U.S. I can pretty much post on my Facebook and say, ‘Hey, I’m in this town,’ and I can hook up a session with someone and ride. So that’s pretty cool, that I have so many friends in so many countries just through riding.”

game gets interesting in the most nefariously addictive of ways not seen since World of Warcraft. Most people would find themselves bored to tears waiting in the little hole they dug up for the sun to rise, and the monsters to combust into flames. You’ll find yourself wanting to expand your space a little bit, out of practicality at first. You’ll create rooms to put your stuff in, such as crafting tables and storage chests, and you’ll start mining deep into the earth in order to find rarer, more useful materials with which to make better tools and such. Eventually, a creative, almost greedy spark will kick in, and creativity will replace what used to be purely pragmatism. Using the game’s unique building mechanism and physics, you will find yourself undertaking projects such as building waterfalls (or lavafalls), giant greenhouses floating in the sky or whatever else your mind can conjure; almost anything is possible. I’ve even seen a video in which somebody recreated BioShock’s Rapture. Before you know it, an entire week has gone by.

The graphics are deceptively quite good, considering everything is simply made up of cubes. Players will find themselves building lookout points for no other reason than to have a breathtaking view of the landscape around them. There is even a 3D anaglyph option for individuals willing to dig up a pair of red/blue 3D glasses. The soundtrack, composed by Daniel “C418” Rosenfeld, fits the game quite well. The music is basically an ambient piano which randomly interrupts the usual silence, and helps to convey the theme of loneliness that pervades Minecraft, and is relaxing, to boot. Being an alpha build, the game does have a few issues, but for the most part they are negligible and are usually fixed during the frequent updates, which constantly introduce exciting new elements into the game. Minecraft proves to be a great vessel for creativity, adventure and fun for anyone with the free time for this genre-transcending treat, and you’ll be glad you spent a measley $15 to support it.

Family ties grow stronger at Bear Creek The weekend music festival gets bigger, but grows more tight-knit every year

Attendees enjoy the sights and sounds at the annual Bear Creek Festival.

Grace Norberg Senior Staff Writer

The one word that was repeated over and over, from the mouths of musicians onstage to the festivalgoers watching them, was “family.” Bear Creek’s attendance has increased every year since its inception four years ago as a small festival held in the backwoods of the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak, Fla. People of all creeds come together as part of the Bear Creek family. “I liked how people of all generations, young and old, could come together and party in complete harmony without any bicker-

ing, fighting or segregation; everybody was just there to have a good time,” FSU senior Joshua Gallner said. “People of younger generations were listening to older-style music, and vice versa.” One aspect of Bear Creek that was different from previous years was the incorporation of more electro music in the lineup, most notably The New Deal, who took jam-band sounds and spun them into a live electronica performance. The festival lasted all weekend long, with sets starting at about 11 a.m. and the music lasting until as late as 4 a.m. There were even sets on Wednesday and Thursday for those who really love camping, not to mention live music, of course. During the day, attendees could be seen downing some cool ones on the way to see their favorite bands

play, buying food from the many vendors and shopping around for handmade jewelry, tye-dyed clothing and more. Campfires lit up the night as people cooked their hot dogs and s’mores, and made their way to one of the festival’s six stages, where glow sticks peppered the crowd and bodies swayed to the movement of the music. Artists captured the feeling of the crowd by painting during the music sets. “It was better than any of the other festivals I’ve been to, because I feel like people were more enthusiastic,” FSU senior Kayleigh Mattos said. “People were dressed up and it made it more fun.” The trend at Bear Creek this year was to have a “spirit stick,” a totem that is held up and thrust to the beat of the music. Some of the best ones included a boxing glove atop

a stick wrapped with blinking lights, a huge blow-up dinosaur and a foam pool floatie adorned with glow sticks. There were about 100 different bands at Bear Creek this year, and every one had their own distinct style. Toubab Krewe played on Thursday and Friday, rousing the crowd with their unique blend of African beats and rock. The band from North Carolina has traveled to Africa to study their craft under musicians who have generations of musical background in their family. “We went there to get to the root of it,” guitarist, kora and kamel ngoni player Justin Perkins said. “If you want to really learn about something, you go to the source.” The very first set on Saturday was Tallahassee’s own Curious Circus, a jam band with a rotating cast of members.

Curious Circus has been a staple of Bear Creek since before it was even held at Spirit of the Suwannee. “I love Bear Creek because all the music is fantastic; everything is improv, which is totally where I come from with music,” frontman Brian Burgess said. “I do a lot of different things musically, but everything is geared toward improvising, experimenting, pushing the envelope.” The infamously sexed-up Soular System played Saturday evening, and much to concertgoers’ surprise, lead singer Rev. Desmond D’Angelo kept his shirt on. He made up the word “electrospective” to describe Soular System’s sound. “I try to maintain some

es to be accepted into the fall show. “Once I achieved the goal of getting into ‘Days of Dance’ […] I thought it was a bonus, because the process itself was so fulfilling,” Bernard said. “Even if I didn’t get in ‘Days of Dance,’ this would have been totally

ther. It’s obvious that Guggenheim and Butters are channeling DC Comics’ team groups, and playing with many of the stereotypical characters found within the various lineups. The question readers will have to ask themselves is whether they want to know what would happen to Superman and Batman-like characters without villains to beat on. Even so, a good concept with average storytelling has the unfortunate problem of still being average.

Agents #1. There might have been a few people interested in the latest incarnation of the series, but, in general, it’s a safe bet it slipped under a lot of radars. That said, the first issue isn’t perfect, but shows enough promise that it could make it into a lot of fans’ monthly rotation. Writer Nick Spencer spends most of the issue introducing his audience to the title’s namesake, The Higher United Nations Defense Enforcement Reserves. The basic concept is the group tackles threats most people are unaware of by empowering their agents with various superhuman powers. The catch is, these powers eventually kill

the agents. Readers aren’t introduced to new T.H.U.N.D.E.R. agents in this issue, and are instead made familiar with the process of finding new recruits. That’s nice, but what makes this issue stand out is an entertaining and complicated plot twist regarding an agent being kidnapped by the same villainous group—twice. It’s a little humorous and ends up making sense in a more ingenious sense. Between Spencer’s work and artist CAFU’s well-done renderings, DC Comics has the start of what could be an excellent series. Let’s hope this book bucks clichés and burns long and bright, instead of just burning out.

comic from 5 far as it goes. Halcyon asks what happens when the good guys win their fight with evil. If the series’ artists want readers to add their work to their pull lists, this question will need one hell of an answer. At the moment, it doesn’t seem like one is in sight. The new series is written by the capable Marc Guggenheim and Tara Butters, and drawn by Ryan Bodenheim. The first issue accomplishes two goals: It introduces the main characters, and puts forward the protagonists’ looming problem. That the issue accomplishes this is as surprising as it is bloated with introductions. This doesn’t make the issue bad, but it does nothing to make it stand out, ei-

A lot of people feel a certain way about things, but nobody ever really writes songs about it, so that’s where the word comes from.” Whether it was from the heat of the Purple Hat Circus Tent or the warmth of a campfire, everyone was sure to leave Bear Creek feeling warm and fuzzy inside from the dose of soul, funk, blues, electro and jam band music that was heard throughout the weekend. Some other featured bands included Umphrey’s McGee, moe., Perpetual Groove, Zach Deputy, DJ Logic, Catfish Alliance, Break Science, Cadillac Jones and DubConscious, to name a few.

Louisiana family cleaning up after rampaging deer HOUMA, La. (AP)— A Louisiana family said their house was trashed by a full-grown deer that crashed through a glass door. The rampaging buck created chaos for close to a half hour Friday while trying to get out of the house in Houma, about 50 miles southwest of new Orleans. It smashed belongings, upended furniture and chased the women and child inside before it was shot and killed by a dep-

uty. Linda Babin, a 60-yearold employee of the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Office, said she’s shocked by the damage and terror the deer inflicted at her home. She said her house looks like a crime scene after the deer’s home-invasion. Authorities speculate that the 200-pound buck may have thought its reflection in the slidingglass storm door was another animal.

Charlotte on their minds

FSU travels to Maryland with division, conference title hopes at stake

Melina Vastola/FSView

After a one-week hiatus due to injury, senior quarterback Christian Ponder will lead the Seminoles against the Maryland Terrapins on Saturday night in College Park, Md.

Scott Crumbly Staff Writer

After finally pulling out a close victory last week against Clemson and ending their two-game losing streak, the Florida State football team will face the Maryland Terrapins this Saturday night in a cru-

cial showdown in the tight race for the Atlantic Coast Conference’s Atlantic Division title. The Seminoles (7-3, 5-2 ACC) once again find themselves in first place in the Atlantic Division standings, as they enter their final conference game of the regular season owning

a half-game lead over both Maryland and N.C. State. But FSU has work left to do if they want to earn a spot in the ACC Championship Game to be played on Dec. 4 in Charlotte. Maryland (7-3, 4-2) and N.C. State, which are tied for second place in the division, can each take the

division crown by winning their final two league games. If FSU hopes to come out of the division on top, the ’Noles need to beat Maryland this weekend and hope N.C. State loses one of its remaining ACC games because the Wolfpack own the tiebreaker

over the Seminoles due to their victory on Oct. 28. Offensively, the Seminoles will look to get back on track against the Terps after an uncharacteristic performance last week against Clemson. Florida State is averaging 31.9 points per game on the season, but only man-

aged 16 against a stout Tiger defense, needing the program’s first-ever walkoff field goal from kicker Dustin Hopkins to sneak out with the victory. Although the Seminoles are a mere two plays away from being 9-1 overall and see charlotte 12

Men’s basketball buries Bulldogs FSU wins third straight game with defeat of Gardner-Webb Nick Sellers

Assistant Sports Editor The Florida State men’s basketball team won their third game in five days on the shoulders of junior forward Chris Singleton, who scored a career-high 30 points, as the Seminoles defeated the Gardner-Webb Bulldogs, 78-53, Tuesday night at the Donald L. Tucker Center.

The Seminoles came out swinging, hitting their first four shots and going up by 10 points after just five minutes of play. The fast start was an indication as to how the first half would play out, and FSU’s lead would grow to as large as 20 in the first half. The ’Noles (3-0) were clicking on all cylinders for the first 15 minutes of play, but fizzled toward the

end of the first and into beginning of the second half, allowing Gardner-Webb to crawl within six points. It was then that Florida State employed a tough full-court press and a rotation that utilized their size and athleticism, allowing them to pull away as the contest began to wind down, leading by as many as 26 points in the second half. As a team, the ’Noles

shot 47 percent from three-point range, scored 32 points in the paint and held Gardner Webb (2-1) to a 35 percent field goal percentage. Singleton had an outstanding evening for the Seminoles, complementing his career scoring night with a team-high 12 rebounds, three blocks and two steals. Perhaps the most im-

pressive stat for the Wooden and Naismith Awards candidate was that he reached his career-high on 10-of-11 shooting from the field, including a perfect 3-of-3 from beyond the arc. “It’s about time,” senior guard Derwin Kitchen said of Singleton’s big game, with a laugh. “Last year, we expected him to do the same thing even though

he wasn’t really ready for that role, but this year, you can see it. For him to have a triple-double one game and then come out and have 30 points the next game, you can see the growth in him.” Florida State head coach Leonard Hamilton was pleased with the intensity with which Singleton see bulldogs 12

When the NCAA soccer tournament kicks off, mayhem ensues. But you don’t have to tell that to Portland or any of the other five seeded teams that lost in the round of 32. Fortunately for the second-seeded Florida State

Seminoles, they weren’t one of those teams. The ’Noles (15-5-1) handled their business on opening weekend, topping Middle Tennessee State, 3-0, and a streaking South Florida team, 2-1, to set up a Sweet 16 showdown Saturday with No. 3 seed and Big East power Marquette.

The match against Marquette will be Florida State’s sixth consecutive appearance in the Sweet 16, where they will be seeking their sixth consecutive Elite Eight appearance as well with a win. Marquette (16-4-3) enters their contest with the Seminoles on a different

note. The Golden Eagles needed extra time and penalty kicks to top Wisconsin in what amounted to a 2-2 slugfest in regulation. Coupled with an unimpressive 1-0 victory against Central Michigan, Marquette appears to be hobbling into Tallahassee, but fortunate at the same time to be in the position

they’re in this late in the season. Both squads play a similar brand of soccer, predicated on quelling the attack of their opponent. Florida State has limited its opponents to one goal or less 18 times and has allowed just 15 goals on the season. Similarly, Marquette has only allowed

Women’s basketball maintains perfect record Deluzio’s career game catapults Seminoles past Auburn, 67-61

Eric Zerkel Staff Writer

On the road for the first time this season, the 14th-ranked Florida State women’s basketball team inched by a tough Auburn squad Monday night in Auburn, Ala. The Seminoles (2-0) struggled to find their offensive identity for most of the game, looking out of rhythm throughout the game, as they accumulated a season-high 29 turnovers in spite of the win. “We knew the offense was going to be a workin-progress,” FSU head coach Sue Semrau said. “We need to get better on that end. But I was very pleased with our defensive poise out there. We outrebounded [Auburn] and never gave up and that is the type of ballgame that helps you moving forward.” Aside from the development of a young ’Nole squad, Auburn’s defense deserves much of the credit. The Tigers (1-1) stymied the Seminole attack by stealing the ball 12 times, with three different players notching at least three steals. Facing a tough defense,

a hostile crowd and a new offense, the Seminoles continued to rely on rising star Alexia Deluzio. Deluzio scored a gameand career-high 23 points while also grabbing six rebounds and dishing out two assists. Co-ACC-Rookie of the Week and highly touted freshman Natasha Howard followed up her 20 point-output in the Seminoles’ season opener against Alabama State with 14 points, nine rebounds and two blocks against the Tigers. Cierra Bravard continued her dominance in the paint, grabbing 10 rebounds while also scoring 12 points, as she has posted a double-double in both of the Seminoles’ games this season. Florida State came out streaking early in the game. After a Chasity Clayton 3-pointer, the Seminoles found themselves up 17-8. Auburn would respond, going on a 22-6 run to end the first half, and sending a dejected Florida State squad to the locker room trailing 30-23 at halftime. Much like the start of the game, the Seminoles opened the second half

SPORTSBRIEFS ACC Georgia Tech upended by Kennesaw State Losses are bound to come, but this is one that Georgia Tech never saw coming. Spencer Dixon had a game-high 27 points as Atlantic Sun Conference member Kennesaw State built a 20-point first-half lead that eventually led to an 80-63 upset of Georgia Tech this past Monday night. “They played like champions,” Kennesaw State coach Tony Ingle said of his players. “They knew what this meant. This was the biggest game on campus in the history of the school.” LaDaris Green  had 19 points and 12 rebounds for the Owls (2-0), who had never beaten a team from the ACC or any of the other power conferences. “The crowd really helped me and the team out,” said Dixon, who was an impressive 5-of-10 from 3-point land. A record attendance of 4,784 jammed into the Kennesaw State Convocation Center, and the Owls put on a show, hitting 10-of-23 (43.5 percent) from behind the 3-point

arc and taking it right to Georgia Tech. “Our defense was tremendous,” Ingle added. K e n n e s a w State’s Markeith Cummings  scored 13 points,  Kelvin McConnell had 10 points and Aaron Anderson  grabbed 10 rebounds to go with nine points. Iman Shumpert led Georgia Tech (1-1) with 20 points while Glen Rice Jr. scored 15 and  Brian Oliver had 12 points. The Yellow Jackets cut the deficit to 54-49 midway through the second half, but then the Owls pulled away for good, as Dixon scored 18 of his points in the second half. “It’s disappointing,” Shumpert said. “It was a big game for them, and we’ve got to treat every game as big for us.” The Yellow Jackets won 23 games and made the second round of the NCAA tournament last season. But they start four sophomores and a freshman this season after losing three of their top four scorers, including standouts Derrick Favors and Gani Lawal, to the NBA. “We’ve got to buckle down mentally,” Oliver said. “We have the skills.” Kennesaw State, which won the NCAA Division

on a hot-streak, and just three minutes into the half, back-to-back triples from Howard and Deluzio gave the ’Noles a 33-32 lead. “We came out real aggressive to start the game but we lost that momentum,” Deluzio said. “The coaches told us at halftime to come back out and regain that aggressiveness and we did.” But in a game that featured nine lead changes, that advantage would not hold. After regaining control of the game, Auburn would eventually build a 54-47 lead over Florida State with just under eight minutes left in the game. After a Florida State timeout, the ’Noles rallied, riding an 81.8 free throw shooting percentage to victory. The ’Noles scored their final eight points from the charity stripe, with Cierra Bravard hitting 5-of-6 and Deluzio notching two in the final 20 seconds to put the game on ice, 67-61. Florida State returns to Tallahassee Thursday to open up a two-game homestand against Colorado State and Vanderbilt. II national title in 2004, moved up to NCAA Division I as a transitional member for the 2005-06 season and became a fullfledged member of the Atlantic Sun last season. Georgia Tech was 0-for6 from behind the 3-point line in the first half compared to the 6-of-14 performance for Kennesaw State. Georgia Tech shot just 28.8 percent (17 for 59) in a 52-39 opening victory at home against Charleston Southern and was 3 for 22 on 3-pointers in that game. The Yellow Jackets made only 35 percent (21-for60) of their shots against Kennesaw State and were 4-of-14 on 3-pointers. “I have a lot of confidence in our players,” Ingle said. “This is what they came here for.”

NCAA Meyer has no plans to fire offensive coordinator Addazio It’s been an up-anddown type of season for Florida head football coach Urban Meyer. Fortunately for offensive coordinator Steve Addazio, that position will still be his, as Meyer expects to get Florida  back to the “elite level” they have been over the previous four seasons. Meyer said this past Monday he has no plans to fire or demote Addazio,

Redshirt sophomore guard Alexa Deluzio helped lead the Seminoles past the Auburn Tigers in a tough road test Monday night. whose lackluster offense and underachieving offensive line are receiving the brunt of the blame for the program’s first three-game losing streak at home in more than two decades. “I don’t see an offense full of life,” Meyer said. “I don’t see a lot of energy. That’s one thing as a head coach that concerns me. That’s all personnelbased and success-based. I don’t see that around our offense right now. We’re trying to energize that group right now. “We’re a staff that believes energy equals production. We’re trying to push that as hard as we can on this offensive outfit right now.” Meyer said he’s trying to pinpoint the problem. “There’s a void in our team right now somewhere and I’m trying to figure out what it is,” Meyer said. “Whether it be energy level, whether it be chemistry, there’s a little bit of a void and we’ve experienced that.” Although Meyer said the spread scheme has to have a dynamic quarterback to be effective, he said quarterback John Brantley—who has three touchdown passes and seven interception over the last seven games— will start Saturday against Appalachian State. Meyer also said he regretted not using backups Trey Burton  and  Jor-

dan Reed more in Florida’s loss to South Carolina last week. “We felt a little panicked when things weren’t going well,” Meyer said. “I’m one of those guys that gets panicky. I’ve got to learn to shut my mouth sometimes and say, ‘Look, we’ve got a plan—go with the plan.’ I’d put that one on me. I’m used to plays around here and that wasn’t happening.” Indeed, which makes everyone wonder whether Meyer will push the panic button with Addazio. “I’m going to do the best I can to get this back to the elite level, which we all expect,” Meyer said.

FSU FSU alum Posey wins NL Rookie of the Year award Former FSU baseball player Buster Posey was named NL Rookie of the Year on Monday. Posey received 20 of 32 first place votes. Although the award is based solely on the merit of regular season performance, the announcement came shortly after Posey helped lead the San Francisco Giants to a World Series title, their first since the franchise moved from New York and their first since 1954. Posey was promoted from Triple-A Fresno on May 29 and although he

only played in 108 of 162 regular season games for the Giants, Posey was fifth among NL rookies with 18 home runs, fourth in RBI with 67, second in slugging percentage with .505 and third in on basepercentage with .357. After the Giants traded catcher Bengie Molina to the Rangers on July 1, Posey entered the starting lineup and ripped off a 21-game hitting streak, one short of the Giants’ all-time rookie record set by Willie McCovey in 1959. Posey was also praised by his manager Bruce Bochy for the way he handled the Giants’ pitching staff, a rotation that finished the regular season with the best ERA in the majors at 3.36 and that number dipped to 3.18 when Posey was behind the plate. Included in the Giants’ rotation is two-time NL Cy Young award winner Tim Lincecum. “We’re here because of the job he did behind the plate as much as his hitting,” said Bochy. “We brought him up to give us another bat in the lineup. But Buster is a great talent, and a smart kid, too. As far as handling the staff, calling the game, reading hitters, he’s got that great feel you like from a catcher. [...] The pitchers trust him.” —Compiled by Al Buzzelli & Nick Sellers

seeds from 10 the Seminoles in scoring throughout the regular season, other players have rose to the occasion so far this tournament. Against Middle Tennessee, Casey Short and Breezy Hupp provided the spark, with Short notching two goals and Hupp scoring the game-winner. Against South Florida, defenders made their mark on the attacking end of the pitch, with Kassey Kallman and Toni Pressley scoring both goals for the ’Noles. The story has been similar for Marquette. Led in scoring by two players— Maegan Kelly and Rachael Sloan—Lisa Philbin and Kerry McBride scored the only goals for the Eagles against Wisconsin. The ’Noles and Golden Eagles only share two opponents from the season in Auburn and South Florida. Marquette lost in the semifinals of the Big East tournament, 3-2, to South Florida, but was

undefeated in the Big East until that loss, defeating the bulls 2-1 earlier in the year. Marquette topped Auburn, 3-0, earlier in the season as well. Auburn was the same team that handed Florida State their first loss of the season. The Golden Eagles might be facing an uphill task as they travel to Tallahassee. The ’Noles are 20-1 all-time at home in NCAA tournament play, and possess an overall record of 29-9-2. The match is set to kick off at 1 p.m. at the Seminole Soccer Complex.

Volleyball eyeing NCAA tournament berth FSU hosts Maryland, Boston College in home stretch of season

Scott Crumbly Staff Writer

The Florida State volleyball team will once again take the court at Tully Gym this weekend, as they take on two more Atlantic Coast Conference foes. The ’Noles have only three conference games left and just four total matches total remaining on the regular season schedule. FSU (18-9, 10-7 ACC) will have a lot to play for this weekend when they host Maryland and Boston College this weekend. Head coach Chris Poole mentioned after the team’s loss to Clemson two weeks ago that they still had a shot to reach the NCAA tournament if they could reach the 21win mark on the season. The Seminoles, who currently have 18 victories, will need to win three of their final four matches to reach that magic number. On Friday night at 7 p.m., the ’Noles will go for win No. 19 against the Terrapins (19-10, 107) in front of their home

crowd. Florida State will be looking for revenge after the Terps won the first matchup between the two teams earlier this season on Oct. 17 in a dramatic five-set match. The ’Noles and Terps are currently two of four teams in the ACC who are tied in the conference standings with 10-7 league records. Both teams are coming off impressive wins last weekend, as Maryland took out the conference’s top team in Duke, and the Seminoles dropped second-place North Carolina in four sets. For Maryland, beating Duke was a huge confidence-builder and has the Terrapins feeling good as they head to Tallahassee. Maryland head coach Tim Horsmon said that the win over Duke was the biggest that Maryland has had since he took the head coaching job three seasons ago. Maryland also has an opportunity to play itself into tournament contention with a strong finish to the season.

Head coach Chris Poole’s team must overcome a tough November stretch if they hope to earn an NCCA tournament bid. Sunday’s 1 p.m. matchup will pit the Seminoles against the ACC’s worst team in Boston College (8-22, 0-17). Florida State defeated the Eagles in Chestnut Hill, Mass., back on Oct 17, but it wasn’t

easy. FSU escaped with a sloppy win that took five sets to close out. Florida State will look to take advantage of a weak BC team that ranks deadlast in the conference in four statistical categories:

hitting percentage, opponent hitting percentage, assists and kills. Coach Poole believes the Seminoles are still a work in progress, but following Sunday’s win over N.C. State, he said that

the seniors have shown standout leadership thus far. The race for the NCAA tournament is on, and the ’Noles can’t waste any matches if they hope to earn a bid this year.

they were able to generate against Kyle Parker of Clemson. Despite those two problem areas, Florida State still held Clemson to just 13 points, and head coach Jimbo Fisher likes what he saw out of his defense in the red zone. “[We] played great red zone defense,” Fisher said. “When [Clemson] got in the red zone, they didn’t

give up scores. We blocked a field goal and got a pick down there by [Xavier Rhodes].” After a 2-10 season in 2009, Maryland has been one of college football’s biggest surprises this year. The Terps find themselves in the thick of the ACC race, and have weapons offensively that FSU must be wary of. “They’ve got wide

outs that can run and make plays,” Fisher said. “They’re a very good team and Ralph [Friedgen] is a very good football coach.” N.C. State faces their instate rival North Carolina on Saturday at noon in a game that has big implications for the ’Noles’ conference title hopes. Fisher believes his team will have to worry about its own game, however, and

not focus too much on the outcome of that matchup. “We have to play the game against Maryland,” Fisher said. “That’s the game that we can control and make a difference for us.” The ’Noles will also have to battle the elements, with the temperature forecast to be in the 40’s on Saturday night. Kickoff is set for 8 p.m.

charlotte from 10 7-0 in the conference, quarterback Christian Ponder knows the team’s goal of an ACC title is still within reach, and a lot will be on the line this weekend in College Park, Md. “After two back-to-back losses, [everyone] figured that the world was ending, but [our] goals are still right there,” Ponder said. “Obviously we have to handle business this week.”

Ponder will return to the starting lineup Saturday after missing the Clemson game due to a surgical procedure to remove fluid from his throwing arm just above his elbow that resulted from a fascia injury on his right tricep. Defensively, the ’Noles will try to bolster their run defense and get more pressure on Maryland quarterback Danny O’Brien than

bulldogs from 10 played. “I think Chris has found what we call that magic level—that mental frame of mind that you have to [have] in order to go out and compete every night,” Hamilton said. “I also think that he’s playing with a lot more confidence. He’s not quite as tentative. He realizes that we need him to perform at a high level.” Not to be lost in the shadow of Singleton’s performance were the other Seminoles, including junior guard Deividas Dulkys, who was second on the team in scoring with 12 points and tied for the lead in assists with four. Dulkys was 4-of-6 from beyond the arc and contributed two steals to the Seminoles’ 10 on the night. Kitchen had nine points and four assists in 26 minutes and junior forward Bernard James finished with eight points, three rebounds and two blocks in only 13 minutes.

Although it is still early in the season, the Seminoles showed flashes of brilliance and proved that, when they are playing at a high level, they can be difficult for any team to handle. “We’re a developing team, we’ve still got to welcome our newcomers in,” Singleton said. “Once they get used to our system and how to work it properly and to its fullest, we’re going to be a good team.” There is no rest for the weary, as the Seminoles travel to Miami to take on Florida International on Thursday at 7 p.m. Florida State’s next home game will be next Tuesday, Nov. 23, at 7 p.m. against Mercer.

Should she shun Sharia? Shoot, yes! Samuel Berkowitz Staff Writer

Biblical tolerance of slavery, along with primitive forms of punishment for crimes that now fall within the realm of the civil courts are common arguments used by liberals to refute the validity of the application of Judaeo-Christian morality in the public square. Anyone who has ever been to a “blue” town in which Christmas decorations are banned, and in which people go into paroxysms of terror over a school Christmas event know what I mean. However, the Quran’s statement that, “If a husband calls his wife to his bed [i.e., to have sexual relation] and she refuses and causes him to sleep in anger, the angels will curse her till morning” (Bukhari 4.54.460) was recently used as precedent by a seemingly mentally-impaired New Jersey judge to dismiss the fact that a

man from Morocco had brutally beaten and raped his wife. Thankfully, the appellate court recognized its duty to adhere to the precepts of American law rather than absurd conjecture based on the Quran and reversed the decision, saying “the judge determined to except defendant from the operation of the State’s statutes as the result of his religious beliefs. In doing so, the judge was mistaken.” It is because of cases like this, and the recent murmurs of the incorporation of foreign law into American court decisions, that the state of Oklahoma enacted a ban on the application of Islamic Sharia law to court cases within the state. One would think it seems reasonable enough; liberals invoke the “separation of Church and State” every time a valedictorian thanks Jesus in his or her graduation speech, so why shouldn’t courts

be banned from using a foreign legal code that is based on the Quran, allows for punitive amputations, compels women to dress like the Grim Reaper, forbids homosexuality (you’d think liberals would condemn it on the basis of that alone), effectively bans interfaith marriages and a myriad of other beauties for which there is insufficient space to discuss. Nevertheless, according to the Wall Street Journal, “Chief Judge Vicki Miles-LaGrange, of U.S. District Court in Oklahoma City, set a Nov. 22 hearing to consider whether the Save Our State Amendment violates the U.S. Constitution. Until then, she issued a temporary restraining order preventing the state Election Board from certifying State Question 755, which passed by 70 percent on Nov. 2. The measure directs state courts to ignore ‘legal precepts of

other nations or cultures’ and specifically forbids consideration of ‘international law or Sharia Law’.” What a concept: using only American legal principles to decide a case in an American court. You know, I might be more open-minded toward such ideas if liberals would let us use Mexican immigration law to hash out our immigration policy. Liberals are dismissing this as a non-issue. “Sharia law could never come here,” you can hear them whining, their voices muffled by the sand in which their heads are buried, as they point accusing fingers at “paranoid” conservatives whose world views are informed by a wider scope of experience and ideas than “multiculturalism” and “diversity.” If it is a “non-issue,” why did the terrorist co-conspirators at CAIR file a lawsuit against the state? Obviously, not all Mus-

lims share the backward contempt for American jurisprudence evidently held by Vicki here, as Dr. M. Zuhdi Jasser, president and founder of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, states, “As Muslims dedicated to modernity, reform and our one law system in the west and in the United States, AIFD applauds the people of Oklahoma for passing State Question 755 and making ‘the legal precepts of other nations or cultures’ off-limits to Oklahoma courts and specifically denying the use of Sharia Law. The issue is simple. As Americans, we believe in the Constitution, the Establishment Clause, and our one law system. SQ755 is not about religious freedom or minority rights. It is about the inviolable sanctity of the U.S. Constitution and our country’s foundational belief in a legal system based in one law that is based in reason and individual

rights guaranteed by the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The law has no impact on the personal practice of Islam.” Of course, the unhinged sociopaths at MSNBC and their less deranged—but equally misguided—brethren at the other major networks will give little, if any, coverage to this statement. A quick Google search for AIDF will reveal the rest of Dr. Jasser’s statement, and it is well worth reading. A Google search also reveals the ways in which one may contact this disgrace of a judge in Oklahoma to let her know, calmly and rationally, that her behavior in this case was a deplorable miscarriage of justice and that she should perhaps consider reading some books from her prelaw days, just to brush up a bit. Wouldn’t our beloved community-organizerin-chief have demanded that we do no less in the face of injustice?

Banning Four Loko would be crazy in a can Look at It This Way by Daniel Ackerman

Heather McQueen Staff Writer

Four Loko, one of the most popular malt liquor energy drinks currently on the market, is now under nationwide scrutiny after nine students attending Central Washington University ended a night of binge drinking in the hospital. Commonly referred to as “blackout in a can,” the beverage is popular among the college crowd due to its potency and inexpensive price. In response to the incident, both Michigan and Washington state are implementing bans on all caffeinated-alcoholic drinks in an attempt to avoid further complications and hospitalizations. Four Loko, Tilt, Joose and Spark are all common choices and are said to be marketed toward the younger, college-aged generation of drinkers. The “unstable combination” of caffeine and alcohol creates a risk: Since caffeine is a stimulant and alcohol is a depressant, the caffeine masks the effects of the alcohol, making it less likely for drinkers to know their limits and the effects of the drink. Additionally, only one Four Loko has as much alcohol as five beers and about as much caffeine as a small cup of coffee. I’m not quite sure what

Cameron Gauthier Staff Writer

Even before the election, Republicans have been saying “the American people” want this and “the American people” want that. Every time I hear this I wonder what

the banning of Four Loko or other similar drinks will accomplish, other than the continuation of excessive drinking. Oh wait, that’s the real problem anyway. If these drinks are off of the market, there are still plenty of options to choose from. The reality is that students and people in general are going to continue drinking, no matter what type of alcohol is available. Worried about caffeine and alcohol mixed together in a can? The beauty of mix“American people” they’re talking about. After all, I was born here. Does that not make me an American person? Now that the election is over, they are saying “the American people have sent a clear message to Washington.” To make it even more intriguing, I haven’t seen one Republican alter the wording or try to say it differently; they all seem to be pulling it from some bank of acceptable phrases to

ing drinks is that buying an energy drink and adding alcohol to it will create the same effect. The larger issue is being overlooked by focusing on such an isolated incident. Binge drinking is undoubtedly rampant on college campuses, but binge drinking is barely even mentioned in the articles surrounding the Four Loko controversy. The effects of excessive consumption of Four Loko are still less likely to compare to excessive

consumption of hard liquor, which is just as prevalent, if not more so. The cheap price of the drink is also considered a major factor in its popularity on college campuses. If that’s the case, why not just increase the price? Easy accessibility and excessive glamorization of alcohol use also aid in the perpetuation of abuse. The case of Four Loko is a surface issue compared to the underlying, socializing forces that compel many stu-

dents to drink in the first place. Additionally, prescription drug abuse is also just as popular on college campuses. What about the widespread use of Adderall? It seems the easiest response is just to ignore these realities and create a scapegoat for a comparably minor issue. There definitely needs to be awareness raised about the effects of malt liquor energy drinks, but in the same way drug and alcohol campaigns usu-

ally fail in their attempts to target adolescents, teens and young adults, it seems this may also inevitably prove to be futile. Four Loko is being referred to as a “quick means to an end,” with many associated risks. Perhaps there should be more focus on why this specific end—mindless drunkenness and blacking out—seems to be so necessary and sought after. The end will always prove to be the primary goal, no matter what the means.

ensure a complete absence of diversity in both thought and policy. What is important to note is that much of the delay in passing policy was due to Obama trying to be more moderate (a huge mistake in my opinion), only to find out in the end that the

Republicans were simply playing their usual game of delaying, dismantling and then pointing fingers in other directions. Pardon the math, but I think it’s very important to get a perspective on what exactly happened. In this 2010 midterm election, roughly 42 percent of registered voters showed up at the polls. This means that, out of over 212 million registered voters, roughly 123 million didn’t show up to vote. Out of

the 42 percent that did vote, 46 percent voted Republican. This means that, out of the total registered voters in the country, 19.5 percent of them voted for the GOP (that’s just under one fifth). So here we have an election in which less than half of registered voters actually voted, and less than 20 percent voted Republican. Does this mean that the GOP doesn’t consider 80 percent of the voter population to be

part of this “American people” group? I wouldn’t go that far, but it is a bold statement for them to make nonetheless. This election was characterized by high enthusiasm in the most extreme members of the conservative voter base and overall indifference in the voter population as a whole. The clearest message I can see from this is that the majority of voters have no confidence in either party.
