Editorial

So close yet so far, the end is nigh. Only 2 more weeks to go, then I will never have to write another essay in my life. I just don’t think I have another one in me.

I have finished filming my major project “Librarian” (librarianmovie.com) and now we are in the editing stages. You can check out the final product at librarianmovie.com, it’s a short horrorish film about a killer librarian, (just in case the title didn’t give it away), oh did I mention librarianmovie.com?

Hungappa • Term 4 - Week 5 - 2013

Hopefully we will have some posters up around campus soon, so keep an eye out for those.

Oktoberfest was fun, beer pong just isn’t something that is played enough here, we should have had a beer pong championship at the crow bar, that would have been cool. Maybe next year. It doesn’t even have to be beer, but just the idea is fun.

Bar night this Wednesday which is always good fun, nice to just have a chill with friends, listen to awesome music and not have to worry about an entry fee, so make sure you come down for the second last event of the year. Grand Final Fling the week after which will be massive, I wonder who they will get to play, I guess we will find out soon enough! -Will Whiting -Editor in Chief -Hungappa@Rivcoll.com


The Deputy Editors Drabble Hi guys, I am Kristina Savic the new Deputy Editor for the Hungappa. The Hungappa has always been something to help get conversations flowing wether it was about the centre photos, the back page puzzles or the Bums Submissions. My aim for the Hungappa is to give you guys what you want, if that’s more photos to reminisce over or puzzles to fill the spare time between classes just let me know and we can work to put it into production. Any and all suggestions are warmly welcome. Now let me tell you a little bit about myself. I’m a Bachelor of Arts student Majoring in Art History. I only ever get two reactions to that; an uninterested ‘wow, that’s nice’ or a severely confused ‘we do that here?’. I can assure you that yes we do and no I don’t know why but I am grateful that we do. I love my music, My happy song is Eagle Rock, I am a Mac person, I love the rain and If I had one superpower I would have the ability to fill things I.e. Empty coke bottle? Not any more. Empty bank account? Not any more. My nick names include Kris, Krissy, kiki, the midget and more recently ‘the Wog’. Things that I’m all about lately:

Life: I am currently in the process of making a literary journal with my amazing group members for our group assessment, which I am having an absolute ball with. I also went to the Bring me the Horizon Concert this past Sunday in Sydney which since I am actually writing this on Saturday night I am sure will be amazing. So there you go, a speed date with me. I hope you enjoyed it. Before I finish I want to send out a huge thanks to a few people: To Stuart Woodcock, Scott Couch, Jack Barwick, Joshua Schultz, Alexander Barfoot and of course Hannah Milnes for listening to everything I had to say and helping me develop ideas, putting up with my rambling, guiding me when I needed answers and most of all supporting me. The biggest thank you to Rebecca Waller for being my partner in crime and to Will Whiting for being a mentor and helping us learn the ropes, you sir are a legend. If you have any suggestions or enquiries feel free to contact me at:

Music: K.D.Savic@gmail.com Lorde’s new album and the same with The Arctic Monkeys. AM rocks my world. And for some reason 21 Pilots.

Re-reading The fault in our stars by John Green in preparation for the movie. Movies and Tv: Breaking Bad Final. Nuff said. Also ‘The black list’ and ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D’. Get on it.

THE FALLING OF ASH “Dad! Help me!” Ash screamed wildly as he pushed himself through the front door of his house. “Ash!” his father yelled as he ran into the room, looking for the cause of his son’s distress. “Ash! What happened?” “Help me. Please, stop the bleeding.” Ash pleaded. The blood was now gushing out of Ash’s nose. He had been unable to quench the flow, and his entire torso was now saturated with his blood.

Picking up Ash’s in one motion, his father moved him to the centre of the room. He kneeled, resting his son’s back on the floor and laying his neck across his knee. He clamped his hand hard across the bridge of Ash’s broken nose. His son howled in pain, but his fathers grip was unrelenting. Squeezing harder he twisted his son’s nose into its original shape. “Ash, tell me what happened! How did this happen?”

Hungappa • Term 4 - Week 5 - 2013

Ash attempted to speak, his nose still closed over, his voice soft and elevated, “I was at the Post,” he coughed, “Office. A girl was there. I- I thought she was different like me.” Tears began to well up in his eyes. “She hit me, and I accidentally knocked her over. Her head was bleeding.”

His father stared at him. “Ash, you are to stay inside this house. Do not go outside.” Looking at the expression on his father’s face, Ash knew he was being serious. After many minutes had passed, Blake released hold of his son’s nose. The blood had stopped flowing, and Ash was able to sit up. The two sat together, looking at the blood. “Ash, I’m sorry,” his father said. He walked back outside without saying another word.

PART 4 OF 6

The sun seemed to rise early the next day, but Ash had spent the entire night laying awake in his bed, his mind replaying the young girl’s attack on him. His father entered the room, crossing his legs and sitting beside Ash’s bed. “Late last night, word travelled out here about a meeting at the Hall. I visited the Parkinson’s next door to ask about it. William and his son both attended. Some people want to see you punished.” “But!” interrupted Ash, “she hit me first! I didn’t even mean to hurt her!” “Shh,” he hushed his son, “be quiet and listen. These people are serious, and they want you punished. The elders didn’t give any consent, but they didn’t try to calm the crowd that was there. You need to be cautious. Do you remember the forest, before the hills the sun rises over, where you can see the rock?” Ash nodded, his body shaking under his blankets. “From when I was a kid.” “Yes. If you know you need to, then hide there. If you disappear, that’s where I’ll go.” The rest of the day passed gradually for Ash, time stepping its path in an unhurried manner, out on a leisurely stroll. He did not leave his room, but remained curled up in his bed, drifting in to and out of sleep. When he was awake, his thoughts jumped back and forth between the blonde junior and the meeting held at the Great Hall. When he slept, he dreamt of his mother, a faceless shadow he couldn’t remember.

Student News

By OLIVIA LAMBERT DISABLED and disadvantaged university students in Albury-Wodonga would suffer if the Abbott government went ahead and abolished compulsory union fees, it was claimed yesterday. Student association representatives from Charles Sturt and La Trobe universities said the fees were important for the support of students. In Wodonga, La Trobe student association president Rakan “Rocky” Hellway said it was not a good idea to scrap the fees because it disadvantaged students. “These fees allow us to support disabled students and the welfare of others,” he said. “These amenity fees can support them maybe with extra ramps around campus which allows them to get the same equity.” Axing of the compulsory fee collected by universities to support student services was announced by Education Minister Christopher Pyne — and he will scrap Labor’s targets to lift participation by disadvantaged students. Mr Hellway said there was a chance students would lack motivation to create ideas.

“By students paying fees they have expectations and they bring ideas,” he said. “They see their ideas come into play because the uni has money for that.” Charles Sturt Albury-Wodonga student association president Tom Madden said three services were supported by the fee. “I’m not very happy as the fee is used to provide essential services,” he said. “It improves existing services, provides improvements physically and virtually and looks at enhancing new services.” Mr Madden said it would create a “brick wall” in the way of progress. He said regional universities would be affected more than ones in metropolitan areas. “Regional areas have to spend more money on facilities that are more easily accessible to people who are living in highly populated areas,” he said. Mr Hellway said even though it would be saving university students from paying a small cost, they would be missing out on the benefits. The two students agreed it would be hard for the universities to move forward in terms of services offered. Courtesy CSU Student News www.rebelmouse.com/csu_studentnews

Nine TED talks that every Uni student should watch I decided to share some of my favourite TED Talks here in this list that I think every student should take a look at. Ranging from short 3 minute videos to more attention requiring 21 minute videos, there is sure to be something for everyone in this small collection. 1. Graham Hill: Less stuff, more happiness (5.49) This is a conversation that I wish someone had had with me 5 years ago when my main financial goal in life was to own as many DVDs as I could reasonably get my hands on. Unfortunately, the concept of ‘less is more’ didn’t really click with me until I turned 20. Graham Hill, a writer and designer, started the website Life Edited (http://www.lifeedited.com/) which looks further at his hypothesis that less stuff equals more happiness. This is a short video that everyone should watch at some point in their lives, it opens up a lot of room for questioning and redefining what you want out of your life and your possessions. 2. Matt Cutts: Try something new for 30 days (3.27) Think of something you have always wanted to do. Now, do that one thing everyday for the next 30 days. This could be anything, from starting your mornings at 7am to studying consistently for an hour a night. And those are only the boring possibilities. The key to massive change is making small, manageable changes. So, start by watching this video and try something new for the next 30 days. 3. Al Vernacchio: Sex needs a new metaphor. Here’s one... (8.21) This is a stunning talk that, hopefully, will alter the way you approach and perceive sex forever. Although this refers more specifically to the US approach to sex and sex education, I think it definitely applies to the current situation in Australia. Sex is treated like a competition, you need to have more partners than everyone else, more experience, more skills. You have to win. Al Vernacchio, on the other hand, has decided that there is something wrong with this competitive approach to sexual activity and he provides a new way of approaching sex through the metaphor of pizza.

4. Stacey Kramer: The best gift I ever survived (3.17) I will not ruin the profound experience of watching this video for the first time by commenting directly on its content. What I will say is that this is an incredibly moving talk that should serve as a reminder to everyone that every experience you have in life, whether happy or sad, big or small, is a true gift that will change you in ways you may never fully understand.

5. Russell Foster: Why do we sleep? (21.46) If you live until you are 90 then you have spent roughly 32 years of your life sleeping. Foster, a circadian neuroscientist, looks at the reasons why we need sleep, the way the societal attitude toward sleep has changed, as well as what can happen if we don’t get enough sleep. A very fascinating watch for the Uni student who struggles to function on 5 hours a night. 6. Sarah Kay: If I should have a daughter... (18.28) For those creative students out there this is a definite must watch. Sarah Kay is a spoken word poet who began performing at the Bowery Poetry Club at only 14. Here she gives two stunning performances of her poems “B” and “Hiroshima.” She takes you on a journey from her beginnings as a teen poet to a teacher who travels the United States, and the world, teaching young people how to find self-expression through spoken word poetry. This is a stunning talk from start to finish and it’s difficult to ever get tired of listening to her talk.


7. Sherry Turkle: Connected, but alone? (19.48) This is a very relevant talk for today's Uni students. Sherry Turkle, who studies the effect that modern technology is having on the way we shape our relationships, makes a number of valid points about the way technology is defining who we are as people, and therefore, the way we choose to connect with the people around us. A deeply insightful conversation that made me question the level to which I allow technology to govern my own life and relationships and whether I am happy with that level of control. 8. Jack Horner: Shape-shifting dinosaurs (18.23) Jurassic Park was a defining moment for cinematography and dinosaurs, and 20 years later I still find dinosaurs to be totally freaking awesome creatures. In this TED Talk paleontologist Jack Horner tries to make sense of why we have so many different dinosaurs and how to explain the absence of any baby dinosaurs in our archeological findings. A wonderful talk that will remind you of how much you love dinosaurs. 9. Questions no one knows the answers to (12.08) Prepare to have your mind blown. Chris Anderson, the curator of the TED Conference, along with a pretty fancy-looking animation, ponders the questions that no-one on Earth knows the answers to. These are the kinds of questions one might reflect on when deep in the throes of alcohol intoxication, when the first rays of Thursday morning are peaking over the horizon and you're not entirely sure why you're wearing a dinosaur onesie. When sober, however, these questions aren't given a second thought so you will probably lose sleep over the numerous questions that will arise from this talk.
