Muslim Students Associations from north Texas universities gathered at SMU Saturday to celebrate Eid-al-Fitr at an inclusive event.

Eid, Pray, Love unites campuses ABRIL MURILLO Contributing Writer amurillovill@smu.edu SMU’s Muslim Student Association (MSA) usually brings together just SMU students for fun and social activities. Last weekend, MSA brought four north Texas schools together for “Eid, Pray, Love,” an event celebrating the end of a Muslim holiday. The inaugural event celebrated Eid-al-Fitr, the end of the holy month of fasting Ramadan. The evening consisted of a banquet followed by entertainment and a film festival. “Eid, Pray, Love” took place Saturday inside the Hughes-Trigg Student Center Ballroom. The SMU MSA invited the University of Texas at Dallas, University of Texas at Arlington, University of North Texas and Collin College. Two UTD graduates, Nimesh Patel and Farhan Anwar, amused the audience of more than three

hundred with jokes as they emceed the film festival, the most awaited part of the event. Only three schools submitted their films into the competition. Out of the eight awards presented, SMU and UTD each won three. But UTA ended up winning the most coveted award for “Best Picture.” “Even though SMU organized the event, the rest of the schools were essential in putting it together, making the event [about] teamwork too,” MSA President Zain Rizvi said. UTA contacted all the guest speakers, UTD donated the trophies and the goody bags, UNT organized the icebreakers, and Collin College provided the food for the banquet. The atmosphere of the evening was very colorful and tolerant. Students of any religion were welcomed in the event to learn about Muslim culture, the ultimate goal of the event. Those involved hoped “Eid, Pray,

Love” helped other cultures better understand Islam. “Anybody from any religion should come, is a good way to learn about different cultures, bring MSAs from other schools together and meet other Muslims,” UTD sophomore Sheeren Ibtesam said. Doors opened at 5:30 p.m. sharp for registration. Early attendees had time to socialize before the event officially started around 7:20 p.m. Rizvi welcomed the students and introduced the featured entertainment of the night, Fez Meghani and Aftab Ali, a famous Arabic duet. Meghani and Ali performed two songs. Right after their performance, some guests opted to go to a prayer room before the banquet. After praying, the invitees headed back to the ballrooms to begin eating. While people ate, Imam of the Mesquite Mosque and Harvard doctoral student Abdul Atif Abuzaid spoke about some Islamic

precepts and the shared measures between all three Abrahamic faiths. His lecture reflected his noteworthy scholarship as a professor at the Suffa Islamic Seminary. SMU’s MSA hopes to host “Eid, Pray, Love” every year to bring all MSAs in Texas together. The groups will meet again at an annual showdown in the spring. For Rizvi, it is very important to make connections with other organizations inside and outside the university. He has plans to include more Texas universities in the event next year. While five local schools attended the event on Saturday, the MSA is working to ensure that the University of Texas, Texas A&M, TCU, Texas State, Texas Tech and Rice University attend the event next year. “We have good ideas, but we tend to localize. If we get together and make connections, they can become great ideas and make great things happen.”

REPRESENTATION

Self-defense offers students protection KATIE GOUGH Contributing Writer kgough@smu.edu Most students know to not walk alone at night, always use the “buddy system,” and constantly be aware of his or her surroundings. Some put away distractions such as headphones and texting when walking, but do most students really heed safety advice? “The bad guy gets to pick the when, where, and how to attack,” C.O.B.R.A. self-defense instructor Jim Dryburgh said. Last Tuesday, a female student reported an aggravated sexual assault near the Dedman Law Quad. SMU Police Lt. Jim Walters said that while the university is “fortunate” to have a “very safe campus,” assaults still happen. “[Attacks occur when] you have to have a victim that is vulnerable and susceptible,” Walter said. Justin Everman, founder and chief self-defense instructor at Combative Warrior Arts in Richardson, said that preventing sexual assault

starts by being on the offensive. A person should present his or her self as someone who would be a problem to a predator. Everman’s program refers to this person as a “hard target— someone who does not look like a victim.” Everman teaches his students to communicate hardness in four ways: awareness of what’s going on, body language that conveys confidence and engages eye contact, assertive and sure voice tone and knowledge of basic self-defense. While the first three are achievable without any significant practice or preparation, learning selfdefense requires a little more effort. Most people neglect selfdefense training even though it may very well be the most important. Knowing basic maneuvers can make a huge difference in saving yourself or someone else being attacked. “The odds are whoever you’re up against is fairly unskilled.

Senate discusses SMU pride, honors students

SMU STUDENT SENATE KATELYN HALL Staff Writer khall@smu.edu Student Senate seemed to have swung into full gear after Tuesday afternoon’s meeting. On the agenda was recognizing SMU Olympians, discussing community relations and setting the tone for the upcoming semester. Student Senate continued its discussion of a resolution commending SMU athletes who participated in this summer’s London Olympic Games. There were 14 SMU students, coaches and alumni representing nine different countries at the 2012 Olympic Games. Kelly Kiser, a sophomore who sat in on the meeting, approved of this resolution. “We can all be really proud of our peers who achieved these amazing feats,” Kiser said. “I am glad to see that Student Senate took the time to recognize them.” Student Senate President Alex Mace spoke on the current football season. After acknowledging the

Mustangs’ Sept. 2 loss against Baylor, he encouraged SMU students to support their team in the upcoming game on Saturday against Stephen F. Austin College. “One thing you can do is continue to be a strong voice of support,” Mace said. Support for the Mustangs continues to build annually as season tickets sales are the highest they have been since 1986. In his community update, Mace discussed engaging the Dallas and Highland Park communities in SMU events. Additionally, the Student Senate will begin using a new texting system, SendHub, which will release urgent news and updates to senators. Cox Senator Nikki Ruh is excited for this change. “Senate is always thinking of ways to keep updated and connected,” Ruh said. “SendHub allows quick and effective communication.” Vice President Zane Cavender discussed Student Senate Committee appointments and addressed senate relations with oncampus organizations. Each organization has a student senator liaison. While some have been left without a senator, these organizations will be assigned a senator when vacancies are filled this month. “It’s all about communication,” Cavender said. “If our house is in order and everyone is doing their

job, we’re doing what we’re here to do and being the best we can be.” General Membership Chair Anthony McAulliffe discussed senate vacancies, general member applications and first-year senator applications. Thirty-six students applied for first year senator. There are still Senate vacancies for the Simmons School of Education. Allison Dupuis, a career coach from the Hegi Career Center, visited Senate to present the upcoming event Career Prep Day. The day features sessions like Resumania, where students can meet one-on-one with employers and receive feedback on their resume, a LinkedIn photo booth and a work abroad panel. All events will be held in Hughes-Trigg Student Center. Executive Director Jennifer “JJ” Jones shared the Senate’s “Thought of the Month.” She suggests that success stems from loving what you do. While you may not always enjoy your current task, you can make your own value in your work. International Senator Ramon Trespalacios found this talk valuable and applicable to life at SMU. “JJ’s talk about being sincere in what we do reminded me how passionate I am about SMU,” Trespalacios said. “I am in a position where I can create positive change—I have responsibilities with my constituents, and I know that I’ll enjoy working hard to improve life on the Hilltop.”

The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf is a franchise in California that is expanding to the DFW area.

California-based Coffee Bean plans to expand to DFW MAGGIE JONES Contributing Writer mjones@smu.edu When you feel a bad day brewing and you need something to perk you up, what is a better cure than a big cup of California coffee? But when you’re in Dallas, what can you do? An acclaimed California coffee shop, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, plans to expand its fame to the Dallas Metroplex this fall. One Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf cafe is already located at the Dallas North Tollway and Arapaho in Dallas.

More locations are expected around the Metroplex in the upcoming months. Brewing 30 different types of coffee and offering over 20 varieties of handpicked teas, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf attracts an elite crowd and occasionally some top celebrities. The shop has found a strong, reliable client base at each of its current locations, and expects the same customer satisfaction in north Dallas. “Since the opening of the first café in 1963, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf has built a legendary following of loyal customers. We are so excited to bring this experience to the many coffee and tea aficionados in the Metroplex,”

Bill Duffy, Chief Operating Officer of Lone Star Bean, said. The wide range of coffees and teas isn’t the only thing attractive about this California transplant. The Coffee Bean is also home of the very first iced coffee. The “Original Ice Blended” has rapidly become one of its most popular drinks. The Coffee Bean offers their original iced coffee in a number of flavors, including white and dark chocolate and hazelnut. The Coffee Bean’s initial success led the company to seek expansion. In 2009, a Texas franchise,

Hipsters rejoice: scores of indie bands billed for AT&T PAC patio concerts CHASE WADE Arts & Entertainment Editor cdwade@smu.edu As soon as the thermometer’s mercury begins to dip South, Dallasites emerge from their air conditioned solaces and start enjoying the outdoors once more. One of the best ways to spend autumn outdoors is at the AT&T Performing Art Center’s annual Patio Sessions concert series. The block of concerts, which take place each Thursday during September and October (weather permitting, of course), feature a bevvy of Dallas’ best local bands. The best part? Admission is free. Besides the music, many of the metroplex’s best-known food trucks will park their kitchens around the concert venue to provide much needed grub to the evening. The concerts begin at 5:30 p.m. at the Arts District’s Sammons Park. The park is located directly outside the Winspear Opera House (that shiny red building, for out-of-

Dallas kicks off season vs. Giants ALEX LOKKEN Contributing Writer alokken@smu.edu

The NFL regular season begins with a classic NFC East rivalry ­— the Dallas Cowboys will face the New York Giants at 7:30 CDT Wednesday in MetLife Stadium. The reigning Super Bowl champs host Tony Romo and the Cowboys in a game that could determine who will lead one of the leagues’ most competitive divisions. The Giants beat the Cowboys in both of their match ups last year, eventually ending Dallas’ run at the playoffs in the last game of the regular season with a 31-14 victory on its home field. Jason Pierre-Paul and the rest of the Giant’s defensive line that won a Super Bowl last year will be a huge test for an offensive line in Dallas that is full of question marks. Starting wide receivers Dez Bryant and Miles Austin will be on the field. After experiencing injuries in the off season, Romo’s top weapons will look to put up big numbers against a beat up Giants secondary. Defensive backs Terrell Thomas and Prince Amukamara will not play in their team’s home opener against Dallas. Jason Witten’s spleen injury will

not require surgery, which would have likely ended the seven-time pro bowler’s season. Witten is questionable to play in the opener, but his season is not threatened. The Cowboys may favor playing the Giants away from home. The Giants beat the Cowboys in Jerry Jones’ stadium the last three years, including the first-ever game played in Cowboys Stadium. This year, the team that best protects its quarterback will likely win. Two of the leagues’ premier pass rushers will be on display.

DeMarcus Ware and Jason Pierre-Paul were ranked second and fourth respectively in sacks last year. Second-year player Tyron Smith will make his regular season debut at left tackle during the game. Smith was the Cowboy’s most consistent player on the offensive line in his rookie year at right tackle. He will have the added responsibility of protecting Tony Romo’s blind side against one the league’s best pass rushes. Morris Claiborne, this year’s sixth overall pick, will start in his first ever NFL game for the Cowboys. The former LSU cornerback will be in tandem with free agent acquisition Brandon Carr in stopping Eli Manning. While Manning deserves respect for his two Superbowl rings, Romo will look to remind fans that his career stats prove he is also an elite quarterback. Still, it will take more than good quarterback plays for the Cowboys to end its string of losses against the Giants.

The SMU volleyball team competed in the TCU Nike Invitational Aug. 31 and Sept. 1. The Mustangs entered the tournament with a record of 1-2 and left 2-4, after losses to TCU and Army. In the opening match Friday night against TCU sophomore Caroline Young led SMU with 12 kills. TCU led early in the first set and the Mustangs continued to fight, but the team was not able to get within two points of the Horned Frogs. SMU came out strong in the second set scoring three points immediately, but the early lead was not enough for the victory. The Mustangs never took the lead in the final set with an end score of 25-15. Young had an attack percentage of .348 along with Carla Armstrong’s .357 percentage and nine kills. During the game the Mustangs

took on Army in four sets, falling short of the victory. With a .444 hitting percentage, Young led the Mustangs to a 25-19 win in the first set. Olivia Bailey, a senior transfer, had 39 assists and 14 digs, while Young hit a career-high 23 kills and 18 digs, scoring 26.5 of the Mustangs’ 60 points. SMU’s seven blocks could not compete with Army’s 12 and the Black Knights took the victory. “After that game we were all frustrated, but [we] refocused and knew we needed to prove something and take care of Corpus Christi in the last match,” Bailey said. SMU won its final match of the tournament Saturday against Texas A&M Corpus Christi. Once again Young led the Mustangs, but this time to a victory in three sets. She had 18 kills and three aces. “As a team we didn’t play our best, but by the third game we pulled it together and began to play better both individually and as a team,”

Young said. In the first set Young had a kill and a pair of aces putting the Mustangs ahead. Young scored five kills and three aces. The Texas native scored five kills again in the second set as the Mustangs took the win. In the third set the Islanders cut it close following behind the Mustangs by one, but between Young’s kills and Julianne Scheidler’s ace, the Mustangs took the victory. Young was named to the AllTournament team after 23 kills and 18 digs against Army on Saturday. The Mustangs will be home all weekend for the SMU Doubletree Invitational in Moody Coliseum. “We’re excited to play again this weekend and show everyone how good our team really is,” Young said. The team will take on Wichita State for the home opener this Thursday at 7 p.m. SMU will also take on Texas State on Sept. 7 at 7:30 p.m. and Auburn on Sept. 8 at 2:30 p.m.

Young Ranger hits homer in first at-bat DEMETRIO TENIENTE Staff Writer dteniente@smu.edu The Rangers beat the Indians Sunday to win the series 2-1, improving to 79-54, a feat previously accomplished by the 1999 team. The win also marked manager Ron Washington’s 506th win, putting him in a tie with Johnny Oates for the spot behind Bobby Valentine (581) for most wins in Rangers’ history. The Rangers hit well in August and their bats have remained hot into September. Only three games into the month and they have all racked up 11 home runs and 19 RBIs. That doesn’t include the other five RBIs Texas scored in the series

opener against Cleveland on Aug, 31. Eleven homers and 24 runs driven in over a four game stretch is an impressive offense. “Texas is probably the best team in baseball, period,” Indians Manager Manny Acta told CBS. Texas relied on the bats of David Murphy, Josh Hamilton and Adrian Beltre most of August and it appears the trio will continue its hot streak into September as each hit solo home runs in the Texas fifth on Sunday. Derek Holland (10-6) got his third consecutive win, giving up only two runs over seven innings of work. All the Rangers’ starting pitchers performed well in their outings against Cleveland, with all of them going at least into the sixth inning.

When Ian Kinsler was scratched from the rotation at the last minute, 19-year-old Jurickson Profar was asked to step in. He hit his first home run at his first at-bat in the majors. Profar overtook teammate Adrian Beltre as the youngest player to hit a homer. Beltre accomplished the feat in 1998 for the LA Dodgers. Profar is also the first player born in 1993 to play in the majors. Texas began a four game series with Kansas City with a win on Monday beating the Royals 8-4. Yu Darvish continued Texas’ strong pitching, working his way through the seventh inning giving up only three runs. Texas’ pitching and hitting are firing at all cylinders; they may be peaking at just the right time.

Some of these non-profits are as close as Orange County Adopta-School Program. Others are as far away as the Nantou Ren-Ai Home for orphaned children in Taiwan. College students are welcomed and encouraged to visit The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf ’s Dallas North Tollway location when seeking a great atmosphere to study.

They tend to be amateurs,” Dryburgh said. “So a little bit of skill makes a big difference.” Dryburgh explained that most attackers are lazy and there are very few cases of assault by someone who is highly trained. While some may assume they could fight his or her way out of a situation, Dryburgh, quoting Mike Tyson, says this kind of “hope for the best” technique fails. “Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the face,” he said. So how can students prepare? Dryburgh provided the following basic tutorial to escape from some common attacks: •If your attacker grabs you by the wrist— with your arm held out, drop your elbow down

and twist your arm to break the attacker’s grip in between where his thumb meets his other fingers. If able, use you other hand to do what he calls the “palm-heel claw” — drive the heel of your hand under the attacker’s chin, pushing upward, and use your fingers to claw at the eyes. •If your attacker has his arms around you from behind — use your hands to grip hard and pull the attacker’s fingers backward toward the back of his hand, breaking the fingers and freeing you from the “bear hug.” •If your attacker has you in a front choke— Use your dominant arm to sweep it up and around, in a “C” curve, to knock the attacker’s arms down and away. Just as in the wrist grab, you can use your other arm to do the

“palm-heel claw.” While these maneuvers are only a start, Dryburgh insists learning and practicing such basics can put you ahead of a potential attacker, making all the difference in your ability to escape. “You need to be aware of it, but at the same time you need to have the ability to handle it,” Dryburgh said. After the assault was reported on campus, SMU students have taken special precautions to remain safe. ““I am definitely looking into ways to better protect myself, especially after this incident happened. I think it’s always better to be safe than sorry, especially when it comes to something as serious as assault,” sophomore Raeesa Ebrahim said.

PREPAR ATION

SMU Active in Emergency Preparedness Month The Department of Homeland Security is dedicating the month of September to enhancing emergency preparedness and SMU is determined to play an active role by preparing students for emergency situations. The university will require random drills at various times throughout the semester to ensure a safe exit from campus buildings. Along with drills, SMU will conduct an emergency siren test on the first Wednesday of every month. These sirens are intended to notify faculty and students of any outdoor emergency, such

as a tornado. Each student is advised to update his or her contact information at access. smu.edu, as emergency information will be shared via email and text. Information regarding recommended emergency responses will also be distributed through social media. Table tents in Umphrey Lee’s Real Food On Campus will be equipped with quick response codes for students and staff to access evacuation and lockdown videos through their smart phones. To promote student interest in viewing the emergency

videos, the university will produce and ask questions about the videos through Twitter (@SMU). The first student to provide the correct response from the video will receive a $25 Starbucks gift card. A list of media outlets, emergency preparedness videos, and further information regarding emergency notifications can be found on SMU’s webpage, www.smu. edu/emergency. Students should become familiar with each of the emergency plans to better prepare themselves in the event that any danger is present.

What to do while friends are abroad Michael Graves Contributor

America. Population: 12. Or at least that’s how I feel right now. The first semester of junior year is one of the most popular times for students to study abroad. Six of my close friends are studying in places like Spain, France or the United Kingdom this semester, some of which will be gone the entire year. I now wonder, will there be any people left!? I have compiled a list of tactics to survive the next few months while my friends find adventure abroad. Throw a party — many of my friends just left the country for their study abroad programs. Sure, I was sad to hear they would be leaving, but the best way to make them feel appreciated (and selfishly spend a bit more time with them before they go) is to throw a going away party. Ingredients: friends, food and drinks. Blend and celebrate the prospect of new adventure. Get a Skype account — if you don’t have one of these already, it’s time for you to progress into the 21st century. I Skype my father on a weekly basis, and absolutely expect to keep in touch with some of my best friends who will be spending the semester overseas through the popular video-chat host. Some stories are best told in person but can’t wait for the return home. Remember, people are still here — so I said that I felt like America had only 12 people in it after my friends left, but the reality is we are surrounded by over 12,000 people on campus every day. I bet that you can find at least one to be friends with. Although many of my good friends will be gone, some of my best friends are still here. I can’t wait to spend time with them. However, if your very best friend is gone and you’re truly struggling to find a hangout buddy, treat this as a great chance to put yourself out there and meet new people! Be a tourist in your own city ­— sometimes it can be hard to watch your friends have a blast in Spain or travel down the French Riviera while you’re stuck in school all day, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun either. Sure, your friend may take the train to Berlin one weekend, but you can take a road trip to Austin or pop over to the Dallas Arboretum for a Saturday picnic. You may not think Dallas has as much to offer as some of the cool European cities, but there are some incredible destinations within a 30 minute drive from campus. Fort Worth, Texas as much as I hate to say it, is an incredible place. Both Dallas and Fort Worth have several museums and national landmarks that you can explore. Who knows, you may fall in love with Dallas all over again. Now trust me, I know it can be hard to watch your friends have a great time abroad while you’re studying in Fondren Library. I still live vicariously through my friends in London right now, especially because I fell in love with the city when I studied abroad last summer. However, they’ll be back, and we have so many great things to look forward to right here in Dallas this semester. So don’t fret, there are plenty of people and places left to see in this great city.

What to expect at the DNC convention in Charlotte, NC Tim Welch Contributor twelch@smu.edu Last week, the Republican National Convention in Tampa pulled out all the stops: candidates Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan spoke, as did several other Conservative superstars — even Academy Awardwinning actor and director Clint Eastwood. Now it’s the Democrats’ turn. The question: how will they follow it up? On Tuesday, the Democratic National Convention began in Charlotte, N.C. and will be hosted by Kal Penn, of Harold and Kumar fame. Conventions are all about the spectacle. They are designed to elicit national attention, and potentially win over undecided voters. However, with the advent of cable television, national conventions have gradually received less and less coverage until today. Only one hour will be broadcast per night on the major networks.

Thus, it is imperative that conventions garner a mass audience, while still maintaining a united image. This is done with the power of fame. The McCain ads of the 2008 election cycle were not far off when they labeled Barack Obama “the biggest celebrity in the world,” and the Obama campaign capitalized on this image. At the 2008 DNC, Obama emerged from a flag-immersed colonnade onto a podium in Denver, accompanied by thunderous applause. America was excited for this young senator, the first African-American presidential candidate: change we could believe in. As Sarah Palin said, “I didn’t know he was a Greek god.” But now the novelty has worn off a bit – he’s the incumbent. Incumbents are boring. Therefore, the president needs a new strategy, a new tableau to fish for applause. Enter Kumar. Or, more precisely, a bizarre viral video of the president telephoning Kal

Penn – who is in character as Kumar – asking for him to attend the convention in Charlotte, N.C. This video sacrifices the austerity of the White House in order to pander to the funny bones of the undecided masses. I think it is silly, and simply beneath the President. As a decided voter, I’d like to hear more about the man who ended the (illegal and immoral) war in Iraq, killed Osama bin Laden and won the Nobel Peace Prize. But alas… However, we can all expect the convention itself to be a more serious occasion. The Democratic Party will present itself as the party of the people creating liberty, posited against the Republican Party of the wealthy. The Ryan budget will certainly be attacked for its severe cuts to Medicare and federal student loans, consonant with generous tax cuts for the wealthy. Trickle-down Reaganomics didn’t work for the lower classes in the 1980s, and they won’t work now.

Furthermore, we can expect to see Obama take firm stands on social issues from which Romney tends to shy, such as gay rights and women’s rights. It behooves the president to take reactionary stances. Extreme Conservative values, if played up the right way, will drive moderate female voters away from the Romney ticket and toward the Obama ticket. Congressman Todd Akin could possibly be the best thing to happen to the Democratic Party this election year. Indeed, for egalitarian social policy, blue is the way to go. I look forward to seeing what the Democrats have to say this week, and I hope other young voters will take an interest as well. Regardless of one’s personal values, it should still be a great show.

Clint Eastwood’s empty chair gimmick shows secret genius W. Tucker keene Opinion Editor tkeene@smu.edu Last Friday, everyone who saw the Republican National Convention’s final night was talking about one thing: Clint Eastwood’s speech in which he railed against a vision of Barack Obama sitting in an empty chair. Eastwood used his time on stage, which was apparently quite a bit longer than he was scheduled for and without a teleprompter or any prepared remarks, to ask questions of an invisible Obama sitting in an empty chair. The questions largely asked about the different failed promises that he’d made, including ending Guantanamo Bay, to fixing the economy, to ending the wars and several others. The speech had a humorous tone to it, and clues to Obama’s responses were given through Eastwood’s reaction to them, such as “What do you mean ‘Shut up?’” While no profanity was actually used by Eastwood, it was heavily implied through his reactions, for example when he said “I can’t do that to myself.” The crowd loved this, and the humor was a much needed break from three days of political speeches. While the crowd liked it, the initial reaction from pundits in the press was largely negative.

The speech was seen as rambling, out of place and at times incoherent. Some in the press called it racist, which is apparently a gut reaction after a Republican criticizes the president, but most were simply wondering what on earth they were watching. They were watching a pop culture icon perform an improvised soliloquy on stage. This was not a political speech, it was a performance piece. If they were expecting him to give a rallying cry to the Conservative base to vote for Romney, of course they were going to be surprised. The biggest issue the press had with the speech was that it distracted from the main event of the night: Mitt Romney’s acceptance speech. Perhaps it did, but that is the fault of the media’s own bias against substance, not Eastwood’s speech in itself. What the media missed was the genius of the speech, that it used an empty chair as a metaphor for the Obama presidency, that he has failed to lead on the issues he’d promise to lead on. This metaphor really caught on, so much so that people on Twitter declared Monday “National Empty Chair Day,” which was the number one trending topic for most of Labor Day. This ought to show how Obama has failed

to lead on the economy. This alone should show that the speech was quite successful. He created a true internet “meme” through his performance, which has since permeated even the deepest depths of the internet. If he had just made a normal speech, none of this would have happened. It would have been forgotten. The final advantage to the Eastwood performance was that it drew in a lot of people to see the amazing speeches following it, Marco Rubio and Romney. These people were likely not of the type that would

typically tune in to watch three days of political speeches, so getting any of them to turn on the convention for the most important part is certainly an advantage. The chattering class and GOP elites may not have cared for it, but they were never the target audience for Clint Eastwood. The people who Eastwood wanted to hear the performance did hear it, and they loved every second of it.

José Bowen on ‘Teaching Naked’

SIDNEY HOLLINGSWORTH / The Daily Campus

PARMINDER DEO Associate A&E Editor pdeo@smu.edu “We are making imagination real,” José Bowen, Dean of SMU’s Meadows School of the Arts, said while sitting in the sunlight atrium in Meadows. Dean Bowen is rethinking how students are learning in the classroom. His recently published book Teaching Naked: How Moving Technology Out of Your College Classroom Will Improve Student Learning introduces an inverted classroom style of learning to SMU to show the importance of student to professor interaction. “The traditional model is you come to class unprepared and I expose you. The first contact comes in the class and you go and then learn. Then you come back and I test you,” Bowen said. “With inverted style you have first contact before you come to the classroom, it could be through a video, lecture or reading. Then I hold you accountable and I test you. You do the work before you come to class and then come to class

and interact.” Teaching Naked introduces a different approach to higher education teaching. The human-tohuman interactions and discussions are its focal point and how they are shaped in the classroom is key. The better students become at problem solving, the more prepared they are for life in the real world. Competition has increased across the board among colleges and online education providers. This begs the question, “Why are students paying so much tuition at school when they could learn the same thing for less money?” The difference simply comes down to the teaching style and how a student learns to think. “Tuition can’t go up forever and people aren’t going to pay. If you want more people to pay money you have to have value,” Bowen said. “The industry is changing and I think I have a model that provides value.” With more than 30 years of teaching experience, Dean Bowen offers his advice to faculty and administrators on how to actively engage students in the classroom.

The book explains how technology can be an effective tool, if used correctly, outside the classroom. “The world is [an] open book so I would argue that all our classrooms should be open book,” Bowen said. With a new office dedicated to Engaged Learning outside the classroom, what about inside the classroom? It is a mixture of both outside and inside learning experiences to develop global thinkers once they graduate. “It is about engagement and we need to meet students where they are. Your job as a teacher is also to motivate,” Bowen said, “There is a shift from teaching to learning. I can open doors, I can provide insight, I can provide encouragement but I can’t memorize for you. The motivation of the student is what is driving the teacher.” Dean Bowen is also in the process of starting a new book called Art and Change. Bowen believes that art is instrumental in changing how we think. Art is all about change and introduces people to views that are radically different from their way of thinking.
