Texas cities strive to stop underage drinking Highland Park and other cities in Texas are turning to “social host” laws to help prevent underage drinking. With these laws, adults can be charged if underage drinking occurs on their property, even if they aren’t aware of it. According to The Dallas Morning News, more than 2,000 people were arrested in Dallas County for selling or providing alcohol to those under 21 from 1999 to 2009. Providing alcohol to minors is usually considered a Class A misdemeanor. Offenders may receive up to a year in jail and fines as high as $4,000.

Body Image event coming to SMU The Department of Recreational Sports and the Walker Wellness Clinic will be teaming up to host a Body Image event in the HughesTrigg Ballroom on Nov. 2, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. According to the American Psychological Association, 30-40 percent of Americans are somewhat unhappy with their appearance while another 45 percent actually experience anxiety or depression due to this image dissatisfaction. This could be attributed to many social factors: Whether it’s the images of stick-thin models in our media, or our worship of actors and actresses with the perfect body. A variety of speakers are expected to be at the event. Those who attend will also have the opportunity to win door prizes from retailers such as Tory Burch, Impeccable Pig and Starbucks.

Known ‘thinkers’ come to Dallas for TEDxSMU By MICHAEL DANSER Photo Editor

Photos of Earth’s history went across the screen. An artist rapped about evolution. A journalist told her story of coffee. Speakers spoke to an audience in the Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre as part of the annual TEDxSMU conference on Saturday. The Lyle School of Engineering’s TEDxSMU, an independently organized conference, mimics the annual TED conferences held in Long Beach and Palm Springs.

the advances of genetic engineering and how close the human race has come to creating the perfect “designer baby.” Bill Lively, president and CEO of the North Texas Super Bowl XLV Host Committee, spoke to his audience on the importance of the arts to the survival of the race. “The arts were here long before mathematical equations,” he said, calling them evidence of our species’ consciousness. Attendee Fernando Mujica, engineer at Texas Instruments, was inspired by the conference. “The energy is the main thing—it’s contagious,” he said.


Participants ‘Race for the Cure’ in Dallas again By SARAH KRAMER

More than 26,000 men and woman celebrated those who have survived as well as honored those who have died from breast cancer Saturday, as an army of pink coated Dallas for Race for the Cure. Holly Lukeman sported a pink “Hula Hooters” shirt Saturday morning at the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in Dallas. Now in remission for five years, Lukeman, 56, joined family and friends from as far away as Arkansas to participate in this year’s annual race. “It really gives you goose bumps when you see all these people out here supporting the same cause,” said Lukeman’s daughter, Kati Furseth. With 38 participants this year, the “Hula Hooters” had the most people in their group since the start of their participation in Race for the Cure in 2005. “We just tell people to come do it. It’s cool. It makes you feel so good,” said Lukeman, who became tearyeyed as she looked around at all the supporters. Lukeman was just one among more than 26,000 men and women of all ages who joined together at North Park Center to walk, run, be strolled

or volunteer in the 27th annual Race for the Cure in Dallas. Decked out in pink boas, tutus, bandanas and hats, participants wore shirts proclaiming their fight against breast cancer, ranging from “Lulu’s Warriors” to “Boobalicious” and “Bosom Buddies.” Of the money raised in Dallas, up to 75 percent of the funds remains in the community to fund education and local cancer programs while the remaining 25 percent supports the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation Award and Research Grant Program. SMU junior Elizabeth Kirkpatrick choked up as she participated in her first Race for the Cure in Dallas. She participated throughout high school in Little Rock, Ark., in memory of a family friend who had breast cancer. “All these women really [take] life by the horns,” Kirkpatrick said. “It’s very cool to see everyone out here and to be involved. It’s not just about women anymore—there are so many men out here supporting their moms, sisters, daughters and friends.” Wearing a picture of his wife on the back of his T-shirt, Fred Langridge walked in memory of his wife, Pat, as his 15th year participating in the race. “It’s nice to know that there are so many people who share that common

bond,” Langridge said. A group of students from Carrollton Creekview High School showed their support though none of their lives had been personally affected by breast cancer. This group of young women achieved their goal and raised $5,600 to support breast cancer research and awareness. One of the students, Megan Loudermilk, said, “We could save a life.” Another student, Haley Cordray said, “There is a good chance that I or someone else who is close to me could get [breast cancer].” A motivated and enlivened army of pink lined up for the Fun Walk at 7:30 a.m. on Boedeker Street. More serious runners competed in the 5k run at 8:00 a.m. on Park Lane heading toward Walnut Hill Lane. The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation was established in 1982 in Dallas by Nancy Brinker to honor the memory of her sister Susan G. Komen, who died from breast cancer at the age of 36. Nancy’s promise to Suzy was that she would do everything possible to find a cure for breast cancer. Statistics for how much money was raised this year have not yet been released.

Over 800 SMU students came out Saturday morning to participate in the 42nd Annual Community Service Day. The event is put on by Students Promoting Awareness, Responsibility and Citizenship (SPARC) and helps kick off Homecoming week on campus. Groups get points toward their overall Homecoming score based on the percentage of the organization that participates. “Community Service Day is one of the best Homecoming events because it is great to see so many students go out and help the Dallas area,” said Sarah Bennett, Eta Iota Sigma’s Homecoming candidate. SMU’s Community Service Day is a campus-wide event that connects participating student organizations with 24 nonprofit agencies across the Dallas Fort Worth area, including organizations such as Operation Kindness, the Garland Trash Bash and Catholic Charities. The Garland Trash Bash is a part of the City of Garland’s efforts to keep its city clean and litter-free, as part of the Keep Texas Beautiful campaign. “We went to Garland with a few other fraternities and sororities, and picked up trash and recyclables near a community park,” said Chris Corbeille, a junior and a member of Beta Theta Pi. “It felt good to know that we were helping provide a clean recreational environment

for the children there.” Some organizations picked up trash around White Rock Lake in an effort to preserve some of the natural beauty around Dallas. “It was great being outdoors, enjoying Dallas, while helping the Dallas community and environment,” Katie Tuminello, a sophomore and a member of Chi Omega, said. “Everyone running and biking thanked us.” Charlotte Rhodes, a junior and member of Kappa Kappa Gamma, agreed. “It was really rewarding to see how something as little as picking up trash can benefit the community,” said Rhodes, who also cleaned up around White Rock Lake. Other groups helped out at fall festivals and children’s homes in the area, such as Esther Liu, a sophomore and a member of Eta Iota Sigma. “My group went to the Starlight Children’s Foundation, where we helped with a Halloween carnival,” Liu said. “The Starlight Foundation provides activities and events for children with life-threatening illnesses. It was really great to see all the kids in their adorable costumes.” One sophomore and member of Eta Iota Sigma, Christy Parrott, took a lot away from the experience. “It felt great to make a difference in the lives of some children who don’t often get the chance to enjoy a ‘normal’ life,” she said. Drew Konow, Homecoming candidate from SMU Catholic, found serving a “humbling experience.” “It was a proud day to be a Mustang, knowing that so many people had given up their time for

Conquering the Gladiator obstacle course By JOVIN LIM Health & Fitness Editor

I did it. I proved myself worthy of a gladiator at the annual Camp Gladiator Obstacle Course, held on Oct. 9 at Anderson Bonner Park. It was an early Saturday morning, and instead of sleeping in like a normal person, I decided to lug myself out of bed at 7 a.m. With a second of indecision on whether to sport Mustang colors or more unidentifiable ones, I decided on a white top and black bottoms in the event that I failed miserably. After picking up Jacky, a senior at SMU and my partner in crime for the course, we proceeded to the location with breakfast sandwiches and coffees in hand. We came upon quite a sight, with over 200 people already gathered for a five-kilometer run (that I fortunately did not sign up for), and with a quick whistle they were off into the encroaching forest. The winner eventually finished the five kilometers in 17 minutes, which runners will acknowledge is an incredible feat. Our wave time was at 10:30 a.m., which gave us a chance to explore the grounds. There were various challenge stations, with a 100 lb tire-flipping, a

pull-ups and push-ups contest, and sled pulling of 100 lb water bottles. In order to reserve our strength, we wisely decided to stay away from them until our turn in the obstacle course. Passing by the entrance, the monitor spotted us and asked, “Hey, you guys, you want to do it early?” Of course I didn’t! I had not suitably prepared myself, and there

were still so many stretches, mental devices and calisthenics that I could be doing to psyche myself up! But alas, Jacky replied, “Yeah, sure, let’s get this over with.” Of course, in order to preserve my male pride, I conceded and before I knew it, I was next to her at the starting line. The first obstacle was clearly intimidating, with low-slung chains

across fences, under which we were supposed to crawl. As I pictured myself doing the perfect crawl, the whistle blew. But I had not even had a chance to envision myself running through the other eight obstacles! The remaining two minutes were a blur. After clearing the low crawl, there were hurdles over hay bales. The wave before us had capably knocked

as many as they could over, creating not just a long jump, but a pool of wet dewy hay that we literally dragged ourselves through. The monkey crawl was next, which I performed quite well, and then a body-contorting climb through a cobweb of climbing ropes. With a quick crawl across a ladder, we were jumping over shoulder-height walls, and finally cleared an eight-foot

wall. After another pyramid of hay, I had reached the final obstacle. To say that last obstacle was a behemoth is a gross understatement. It was a colossus! An eighth wonder of the world that spanned thirty feet into the air, and was crisscrossed with cables that I was supposed to climb! With my arms aching and my legs burning, I started the seemingly eternal climb. Push, Jovin, push, I told myself. I forced my legs through every rope, and maintained an arduous pace until I reached the top. I did it! Yes! “Hey buddy, why don’t you go slide on down now and stop holding up the queue,” a voice behind me prodded. Quickly emerging from my moment of self-praise, I quickly slid down the slide and crossed the finish line. My final timing was two minutes and seventeen seconds, and I placed ninth overall for the male division. Jacky had finished seventh for the women’s division. We both had set out with low expectations, to simply finish the course. What we got out of it was more than we could ask for, and we can only hope the next one in town would be just as challenging. But for the next event, please fix those hay stacks.

Mustang Fitness Club to cycle for cure By JOVIN LIM Health & Fitness Editor

Juvenile diabetes is a real crisis for the youth of America, affecting about one in every 400 to 600 children. About two million adolescents, aged 12-19, are at the risk of being diagnosed with it. It is also the seventh leading cause of death in the U.S. and the leading cause of new cases of blindness among adults. It’s no joke: diabetes is a serious health epidemic. It is one that has personally affected me, with both my father and my grandfather having been diagnosed as Type II diabetics. There are two types of diabetes: Type I and II. Type I diabetes is usually diagnosed in adolescents and young adults. Only five to 10 percent of diabetics has this form, and with the help of modern treatment, they can expect to live a long and healthy life. Type II diabetes affects millions of Americans, and it’s usually developed through poor lifestyle decisions. For a normally functioning person, the pancreas produces insulin, which

helps to control the glucose in our bodies. Diabetes is the absence of this ability, and the build-up of glucose in the body can lead to hyperglycemia. Untreated for long periods, it can lead to ketoacidosis, and eventually to coma and death. Fortunately, insulin can be produced synthetically through recombinant DNA technology, a true boon to diabetics that has only emerged in the last two decades. There are many misconceptions about diabetes. Eating too much sugar does not cause it. Type I diabetes is caused by genetics and unknown factors that are still being researched today. Type II diabetes is caused by family history and an unhealthy lifestyle. Being overweight does increase your chances of developing Type II diabetes, and a diet high in calories, whether from sugar or fat, can contribute to this weight gain. And no, diabetes cannot be contracted from another person. Though it is still uncertain as to why certain people develop it, it is not contagious like the flu. Now it’s time to make a difference. The Mustang Fitness Club is hosting the first-ever Cycle for the Cure Event in partnership with the Juvenile Diabetes

Research Foundation on Nov. 13 at the Dedman Center for Lifetime Sports. The concept is revolutionary: 30 stationary bicycles will be “sold” off to 30 teams, at a price of $100 apiece, and each team must raise $600. Each team can consist of up to 12 members, who will take turns riding the bike for 12 hours. Throughout those 12 hours, there will be entertainment, food and beverages provided, and raffle prizes drawn every hour. For the highest fundraising team, there will be a grand price and, more importantly, bragging rights for the year. So take the challenge, and truly make a difference in somebody’s life! Whether you’re a frat boy or a sorority girl, a liberal or conservative, transcend your cliques and ride for something greater. They don’t expect you to be in peak physical condition but just have the heart to truly achieve your best.

‘Catfish’ not the average story of Internet intrigue By LAUREN SMART A&E Editor

Reality is seeping into every form of entertainment these days. The reason for this was proven once again in the hard-hitting film “Catfish.” It’s not a documentary, it’s not a thriller, and it isn’t any sort of scripted movie. Even the creators of this movie had no idea what they were making when they began filming, and they can tell you everything that it’s not, but can’t really explain what it is. The previews for this movie make it out to be a scary stalker flick – which it’s not. It begins as the story of a friendship between a photographer and a young girl, Abby, who paints his photos and her family. It’s an unlikely story, but his friends decide to document this friendship in the pursuit of a good documentary. The plot grows increasingly complicated though, as Nev Shulman – the subject of the film – begins to befriend the rest of the family through the Internet, and eventually develops a romantic attachment to Abby’s cousin Megan. The story is told completely from his side of all the relationships that evolve from Nev and Abby’s artistic friendship.

Nev Schulman, his brother Ariel Schulman, and friend Henry Joost decide to drive together to meet Abby, a girl Nev met online.

There are several attempts to meet this family in person, which fail. The real drama of the story derives from Nev and his buddy filmmakers’ drive to Michigan to meet Abby, her family and the girl to which Nev has become extremely attached. Without spoiling the movie, it can only suffice to say that not only is this movie not what you expect, but the resolution is extremely unpredictable. The title of the film “Catfish” refers to people who are on the Internet who are not the people they pretend to be. As you can imagine, this concept plays a central role in the film, but the end fails to provide a gripping

story of Internet intrigue; instead, the moviegoer is left wondering, “why did I spend money on this?” The only innovative aspect of this movie is that not only did these boys document the calling out of their catfish, they also handle the situation in an extremely mature manner. The overall concept of the film makes sense, and the gut-wrenching shock that comes from realizing that this could happen to anyone on Facebook is daunting. However, you may want to save your dollars for Blockbuster when the movie comes out on DVD.

Stage Rush brings in performances from SMU students By ASHLEY WITHERS Contributing Writer

“Check it!” Nick Cains warmed up the crowd as MC introducing a variety of acts at the TREAT talent show, Stage Rush. The floor of the Hughes-Trigg Student Center Commons had been opened to reveal a dance floor and stage Friday night. Lights programmed to change along with the flow of instruments and microphones hung from the second floor balcony and outlined the dance floor for the performers. Friends, fellow artists and curious wanderers littered the floor munching on pizza and cheering on the various acts. The first up was Matthew Bolaños who took first place in the Family Weekend talent show with his Poi spinning. Friday, he spun his brightly colored flags and light sticks to the beat of a dance number and Lady Gaga. Bolaños has done Poi for two years and said the reason why he continues is because he enjoys “[the] people

watching and [entertaining] other people.” Next up was a band with Evan Kasper on guitar, Peter Whitcubure on bass and Alex Carter on drums. Kasper dedicated “this one to the ladies” as the band played “Ice Cream Man.” Later, playing along with a backtrack, Kasper went into a guitar solo. Carly Bender changed the pace with an impressive baton routine to Relient K’s song “High of 75.” J Spear, another veteran from the Family Weekend talent show, had the crowd moving in their seats with his beats and electric piano. A unique act during the night was a native Ethiopian dance done by Aden Abiye. Abiye said dancing is her passion. “When you move you get happy inside with the beat,” she said. “And my mom used to dance.” Closing up the performances, Jason James, a local Dallas comedian, had everyone laughing with his take on things from money and picking up girls to his fear of prison. Once the votes were tallied the first and second place

winners were announced. Coming in second was Bender, winning $100. “I was amazed by that!” Bender said afterwards, mentioning how she was planning to put the money towards her birthday on Sunday. Taking first place and a prize of $200 was J Spear with his producing act. “[I] didn’t see this coming at all,” he said, “I was shocked.” Spear has already received many offers to DJ for parties and various events. “I think I’m going to use the money for new speakers,” he said of his prize money. At the end of the night, TREAT President Trigg Burrage was happy with the outcome. “I was concerned at first because only two people had the courage [to participate, but] then all those people signed up,” he said. The entire show was recorded and will be posted on TREAT’s YouTube page. Trigg also said there is now a new focus, comedy and spoken word, for the next Open Mic Night on Oct. 28.

The 1980s cult-classic “The Preppy Handbook” was the guide for the seersucker-wearing, Nantucketvacationing, and boarding schoolattending country club class. Author Lisa Birnbach not only officially defined a fashion genre, but she also put into terms exactly how to live a “preppy” lifestyle. The book satirically outlined the acceptable boarding

schools, vacation spots, debutante balls, clothing brands, societal clubs, sporting activities and etiquette essential for being the ultimate prep. Thirty years later Birnbach introduces the sequel to the now out-of-date handbook, “True Prep: It’s a Whole New World.” The new manual tackles everything modern day “preppies” need to know, from the best spa-like rehab facilities, to how to acquire the right attorney to clean your not-so-spotless record, and what


brands are considered proper prep attire, such as Tory Burch and JCrew. Pop your collar and tie a pastel sweater around your neck, because Birnbach will be signing copies of “True Prep” tonight at Sperry TopSider in NorthPark Center from 6 to 7:30 pm. Prizes will be awarded for best-dressed prep, and shoppers have the opportunity to design own-of-akind Sperry’s. Monogrammed madras Sperrys? Now that’s a true prep.

A student’s challenge to education’s broken system STAFF

As college students, we commit to spending four years on campus studying for a degree. We commit to pay expensive tuition and give up nights and weekends studying. We commit to take classes and pass them. We commit to specializing in one or more fields so that we might know something at the end of our time here. We have fun, too, but in essence, serious students come to college with the primary motivation of actually learning Rebecca Quinn something. We agree to certain rules, knowing that if we do not pay attention or pass our classes that we will not be rewarded with a degree. Strangely, however, we never explicitly commit to the real pursuit of knowledge. Because there is no real penalty for refusing to expand our horizons, to push our minds to their limits, or to think about complex concepts outside of class. So where is our incentive to seek the learning that resides outside the pages of our textbooks and the walls of our classrooms? The truth is that the system of modern education—classroom learning followed by homework practice—provides no clear method for discerning a student’s motivation, needs and retention of information. Although grades may reveal how well we played the game in the classroom and how well we synthesized the information at the end of the semester, they tell us little about what we actually know once the transcripts are mailed and the books are closed. The educational system, which in essence changes little from state to state and from Kindergarten to college, is broken. Because as long as we are tethered to our grade point averages, we will never truly be free to learn. An appropriate alternative to the current, age-old model would be one that both allows measurement of student performance and yet encourages true learning. Unfortunately, such a perfect system exists only in our waking dreams. If the system cannot be trusted to ensure that we learn, then who can? The answer is both simple and necessarily complicated: we. The truth is that because our current system is broken, the ethical responsibility of learning lies solely with the student. We are each responsible for ensuring we do our best to learn, despite grades. Yet this responsibility not for the faint of heart. Only the bold, wise few can make the choice to really learn. Even fewer of us actually ever ask ourselves if we have really learned anything, or if it is knowledge or grades that is really more important. Why does our educational system not bring this challenge to us? I believe that our university would benefit from presenting such a challenge to New Student curriculum. The ethos of Southern Methodist University as an academic institution could greatly improve if it would explicitly and unashamedly admit the flaws of the system that it represents. SMU should take the time to inform its students of the role they play in the development of their own intellectual formation and offer them a challenge. Just as new students pledge to drink responsibly, we must pledge to think responsibly. Such a formal pledge would be both innovative and responsible, helping SMU and its students to wisely seek the truth for which its motto stands: “Veritas Liberabit Vos”—the truth shall make us free.

I voted for Barack Obama. Unlike so many other conservatives who crossed party lines to do so, I had no delusions about him being a moderate; I knew his policy positions were antithetical to everything I believed in. Nathaniel French But I voted for him anyway because for the previous eight years I’d seen the ugliness of the political system and wanted to believe it could be different. Obama promised to change Washington, to elevate political discourse in this country and end partisan bickering. It was a noble delusion. Last week, The New York Times reported that in numerous recent campaign speeches, Obama has railed against a Republican proposal “to cut education by 20 percent,” which would “eliminate 200,000 children from Head Start programs” and “reduce financial aid for eight million college students.” The problem with that statement is that the Republicans haven’t actually made any such suggestion.

Obama read the vaguely-worded “Pledge to America” crafted by House Republicans, which promises domestic spending cuts, and made up his own details about what was in it. Then he went around the country telling people that that’s what Republicans have vowed to do. When confronted about this tactic, White House communications director Dan Pfeiffer actually defended what Obama was doing. The Republicans haven’t been specific about their proposals, Pfeiffer reasoned, so Obama is justified in making things up. After all, he has to attack something. Even more appallingly, Obama has been going around raising the specter of foreign powers buying the upcoming midterm elections. Taking aim at ads run by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Obama recently said, “Just this week, we learned that one of the largest groups paying for these ads regularly takes in money from foreign corporations.” The Chamber acknowledges that it receives funding from overseas but says it complies with all campaign finance laws and that none of that money goes into political ads. Bob Scheiffer of CBS’ “Face the Nation” asked senior Obama adviser David Axelrod if the White House had any proof the

Chamber was doing anything untoward. Axelrod responded, “Do you have any evidence that it’s not, Bob?” This is the same guilt-by-insinuation tactic that groups like the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth used to attack Democratic candidates during the Bush years. It’s sleazy. It’s unprincipled. It’s untrue. And it’s the exact opposite of what Obama promised in his campaign. There is much to be said for the Obama administration. It has pushed through an expansive domestic agenda unrivalled in scope and vision since the 1960s. But in terms of changing the tone of Washington, of being better than his predecessor, Obama has been a failure. If you believe in the policies of the Obama White House and want to see more like them, you should absolutely vote for the Democratic Party this November. But no one should be fooled again into thinking Obama and his allies represent a better, less partisan Washington. They don’t. Nathaniel French is a senior theater major.

Common humanity based on justice, charity triumphs over hatred, anger This is not an article about the legal issues dealing with the rights of homosexual men and women or the traditions of America. This is merely a note in response to a much debated topic, to remind anyone who feels angry, sad and alone in this debate—anyone who feels rejected, hurt or abandoned by society, God, his peers, or his country, that some people may accept that anger and understand the use of generalized terms such as “bigot” and “homophobe” because we all know how deep sadness can change us. But know also that those terms will do no good. Angry rants, no matter how relieving they may feel, will not move a cause any further. Passive resistance and words infused only with love and charity despite awful circumstance are the only way to change the world for the better. It seems impossible, but I think approaching the impossible, showing up despite bleak odds, is something we must do everyday and can often be the only worthwhile thing to do. Faulkner said something beautiful in this vein, regarding his meaning behind “The Sound and the Fury,” “that man will prevail, will endure because he is capable of compassion and honor and pride and

endurance.” When you allude to those who oppose you as having perverted a beautiful religion to reflect their own fears and insecurities, understand that no one will listen to you. We sometimes absolutely cannot see the logic, truth, or meaning in others’ arguments, and when we do, it’s often only one shard of stained glass at a time. These things occur over time and we all have come to such a presumptuous place, demanding everything of everyone and forgiving nothing. That is the true perversion of religion, as that is the first and foremost thing we are called to do in almost every one: love unreservedly and forgive, forgive, forgive with humility and an open heart. In regards to the bullying and horrific deaths at hand, please understand that the cliché “two wrongs don’t make a right” exists for a reason. If we want to change society to accept and love, we must show acceptance and love. We must start revolutions and move mountains, but through charity, love, and infinite compassion for the lonely and lost. Of course there is overwhelming anger about that injustice, and there exists the most profound sadness.

But please, please do not fall into the dark patterns of the few (yes, few, despite how much attention they may get) who promote hate, and do not confuse those few with the many that, for entirely different reasons and without any hate, politically debate the legality of certain aspects of homosexuality. Hate will never triumph. And while that pain and despair at the loss of children, teenagers and peers can course through us, we can only strive to promote peace, love, beauty and goodness. Demand what we believe to be rights from the government, yes (and tirelessly!), but do not condemn the people that oppose us and patronize or degrade their beliefs. As a fellow human being, I urge you to mourn and rage, but then move forward into the dark night, taking that infinite capacity for love that allows you to be so upset and bring it to those with whom you disagree—with compassion and honor and pride and endurance. Know that you are not alone. It will get better. Rhaea D’Aliesio Campbell can be contacted for comments or questions at


What is your opinion of the Tate Lecture Series speakers for 2010 - 2011? Vanessa Mavec, Student Foundation’s Tate vice chair: “The speakers this fall have been interesting, but compared to last Spring they are not as impressive or engaging. Additionally, excluding Michael J. Fox, the names this year are not well known.” Marlee Klein, student ambassador: “They are cool people, but they are much too low profile for the Tate Lecture.” Spencer Price Matthews, University Libertarians president: “I loved the inventor, Ray Kurzweil. I felt somewhat unintelligent listening to him. Michael

J. Fox is a strong man to have the courage to go on the road and publicly speak, as he is doing now. Other than that, the speakers have not been very impressive to me. In past years, I enjoyed the president of Liberia, Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf. She was very impressive. There are better speakers on campus, like William O’Neil, outside of the Tate.” Kellie Spano, student senator: “With a few exceptions, this year’s line-up is rather poor.” Alex Stambaugh, opinion intern for The Daily Campus: “I think it is a very diverse list.”

Jordan Johansen, president of Amnesty International: “Prior to the publication of the list, I had only heard of Richard Haass, David Gergen and Michael J. Fox. But, given the level of past Tate Lectures, I am expecting to be pleasantly surprised.” Jordan Jennings, Sports Editor for The Daily Campus: “Last year, I was looking forward to hearing many of the speakers. I have not felt that excitement this year. It is a somewhat unappealing list of random speakers.”


News from around the world Asia-Pacific

Pope names first Australian saint: Pope Benedict XVI has officially recognized Australia’s first saint, Mary MacKilliop, a Melbourne-born nun who worked with needy children. MacKilliop, who died in 1909, clashed with senior clergy and was briefly excommunicated for exposing a sex-abusing priest. In Rome for the ceremony, 50,000 people were in attendance. For anyone to become a saint, the Church has to recognize his or her intermediary role in two miracles. MacKilliop is recognized as healing two women with cancer.

Middle East Israel unveils home building plans: Israel has unveiled preliminary plans for 238 new homes for Jewish settlers in East Jerusalem, reports say. The move comes as the fledgling Middle East peace talks are in danger of collapsing over the settlement issue. The Palestinians have threatened to walk away unless Israel renews its partial ban on West Bank settlements. The international community considers East Jerusalem occupied territory, and building on occupied land is illegal under international law.

South Asia Violence in Pakistan election: At least 25 people have been killed, with cars and buses torched, despite a large security presence. The by-election is for a Sindh provincial assembly seat that was held by local politician Raza Haider, member of the Muttahida

Qaumi Movement, who was murdered in August. His death triggered riots that killed at least 100 in a city with a history of ethnic and sectarian tensions. The MQM’s main rival, the ethnic Pashtun-based Awami National Party (ANP), is boycotting the poll, alleging fraud.

Europe Fail of multicultural society in Germany: Attempts to build a multicultural society in Germany have “utterly failed,” Chancellor Angela Merkel says. She said the so-called “multikulti” concept - where people would “live side-by-side” happily - did not work, and immigrants needed to do more to integrate - including learning German. A recent survey suggested more than 30 percent of people believed the country is “overrun by foreigners.” Correspondents say Mrs. Merkel faces pressure from within her CDU and its allies to take a tougher stance and require immigrants to do more to adapt to German society.

Latin America Russia and Venezuela make deal: Russia is to build a nuclear power plant in Venezuela as part of a series of energy deals between the nations. Russia will build two 1,200 megawatt nuclear reactors at the Venezuelan plant, said the ITAR-Tass news agency. Meanwhile Rosneft, Russia’s state oil giant, will buy a 50 percent stake in German refinery firm Ruhr Oel from Venezuelan state-owned company PDVSA. In addition to the nuclear and Rosneft

deals, a shareholder in energy firm TNK-BP said that the company, which is owned by BP and Russian billionaires, would buy three of BP’s assets in Venezuela by the end of the year. “This transaction is consistent with our strategy to expand our presence with high quality assets in key international markets,” the Russian firm’s president said.

US & Canada Quantitative easing reopened: U.S. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke has opened the way to a new round of quantitative easing. “There would appear, all else being equal, to be a case for further action,” he said, in a speech to the Boston regional Federal Reserve. The U.S. central bank is expected to back a move to buy up U.S. government bonds in order to lower borrowing costs at its next meeting on Nov. 3. Mr. Bernanke warned that prolonged high employment would put recovery at risk, while the inflation rate has been trending downwards. The Fed has a dual mandate to maintain price stability and full employment. Quantitative easing is partly aimed at weakening the dollar’s value, by increasing the amount of dollar cash in circulation.

SMU Tate Lecture Series: Michael J. Fox will be visiting campus on Tuesday, Oct. 19 at 8:00 p.m. to speak at McFarlin Auditorium.

Navy sinks the Ponies By EJ HOLLAND

Associate Sports Editor

The SMU Mustangs (4-3) closed out non-conference play with a heartbreaking 28-21 loss to the Navy Midshipmen (4-2) on Saturday afternoon. SMU looked like they were going to breeze by Navy after taking a 14-0 halftime lead, but the second half was a completely different story. “We didn’t play as well in the second half as we did in the first half,” SMU Head Coach June Jones said. “We did some good things and it’s just too bad.” The Mustangs got on the board late in the first quarter when quarterback Kyle Padron found wide receiver Cole Beasley for a 5-yard touchdown. Padron threw his second touchdown of the day to Darius Johnson early in the second quarter. The 4-yard score put the Mustangs up 14-0. Navy had a chance to get on the scoreboard later on in the quarter, but kicker Joe Buckley missed a field goal from 39 yards out. The Mustangs blew an opportunity to add to their lead just before intermission when the snap on a field goal attempt went astray. “We didn’t want to take a chance of

getting caught inbounds, and we wanted a field goal,” Padron said. “Unfortunately we just didn’t get it off.” The Midshipmen opened up the second half with a 10-play 81-yard drive that was capped by 3-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Ricky Dobbs to slot back Aaron Santiago. “We knew they were going to come out with high intensity [in the second half] and we just didn’t execute,” SMU linebacker Taylor Reed said. Navy added another score late in the third quarter when slot back Gee Gee Greene plunged into the end zone for the 1 yard touchdown. The Midshipmen defense came up big when SMU got the ball back. Linebacker Jerry Hauburger knocked the ball out of Padron’s hands and defensive end Jabaree Tuani was there to recover the fumble. Navy capitalized on the turnover as fullback Alexander Teich punched it from 2 yards out to give the Midshipmen their first lead of the game, 21-14. Late in the fourth quarter, Padron engineered a 10-play scoring drive that included a 4th down conversion to Johnson and a 10-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Aldrick Robinson that tied the game 21-21 with just over two minutes remaining in the game.

SMU got the ball back quickly and had an opportunity to drive down the field and win the game, but Padron was intercepted by Navy linebacker Tyler Simmons. “You can’t have turnovers and stupid penalties at the end of the game,” Jones said. Teich scored his second rushing touchdown of the day from 4 yards out, giving the Midshipmen a permanent 28-21 lead. Padron finished the game with 254 yards passing and three touchdowns but surrendered two costly turnovers. “I was too slow getting the ball out and I just have to get back to being quick on my feet and my release,” Padron said. “We just can’t make turnovers like that.” Defensively the Mustangs were led by Reed who recorded 20 tackles including 12 solos. “This wasn’t a conference game, but we definitely wanted to win this game,” Reed said. “All the coaching staff and all of the players around us wanted to win this game, and it just sucks that we lost.” SMU will host Houston in a Conference-USA battle that is slated to begin at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday Oct. 23.

Craig James returns to SMU campus By EJ HOLLAND

Associate Sports Editor

Former SMU standout running back and current ESPN sports commentator Craig James is returning to the Hilltop to encourage students to get off the sideline and into the game. This one of a kind presentation by one of SMU’s most distinguished alums will be taking place in the Hughes-Trigg Student Center Ballroom today at 7 p.m. “It’s been a privilege to be able to speak to millions of Americans and college football fans,” James said. “To have the opportunity to go back to my school and to visit with the students is something I’m thankful for and looking forward to being a part of.” James isn’t just here to talk football. He’s also here to support the idea that young Texans need to get involved in the preservation of America’s liberty. “I’m passionate about getting out and encouraging Americans to get involved, specifically the 18-29 year olds,” James

said. “I want young Americans to understand how important they are to the future of America.” The thriving entrepreneur will promote the free market principles that helped found America and established our nation as one of the world’s greatest economic powers. “We are America,” James said. “It’s not just the 70 and 80 year olds, it’s the 18 and 20 year olds, and I’m just trying to push everyone to be as involved as they can be.” As a Texan, James is concerned about government involvement in business and health care. He has the ability to relate his football experiences to politics, which in turn should get SMU students enthusiastic about civic responsibility. “Through sharing my experiences as a successful businessman and entrepreneur, and by getting involved myself,” he said, “I can answer questions and try to encourage students as best as I can.” James is on the board of the Texas Public Policy Foundation,

a conservative-based organization in Austin that advocates limited government and running universities more like businesses. Earlier this year, James entertained the idea of running for a U.S. Senate seat and has not ruled out making a run in Republican politics. “I’m not trying to push Republican or Democrat,” James said. “I’m just pushing involvement and how to get involved.” James is proud to be an SMU alum and attributes his success to the University. “SMU allowed me to get around a lot of people that are successful and had an interest in doing something with their lives,” he said. “The foundation of learning and teaching is just remarkable.” The first stop of the Craig James Tour was at Texas A&M University Sept. 27. He will then travel to Austin at the University of Texas on Nov. 8.
