The emotionally charged exhibit, “Aftermath: Images from Ground Zero,” is on display now at the Historical & Cultural Society of Cass County at the Hjemkomst Center in Moorhead.

Cate Ekegren Co-News Editor “Thousands of lives were suddenly ended by evil, despicable acts of terror. The pictures of airplanes flying into buildings, fires burning, huge structures collapsing, have filled us with disbelief, terrible sadness and a quiet, unyielding anger,” former President George W. Bush said on September 11, 2001, almost ten years ago to the day.

None of us will ever forget this day. -- George W. Bush, former president of the United States of America This Sunday marks the 10year anniversary of the 9/11 attacks that took place in New York, Pennsylvania and Washington, D.C. but affected our entire nation. The horrifying events began at 8:46 a.m. on Sept. 11, 2011 when the first hijacked airplane struck the World Trade Center’s North Tower. More than 3,000 people lost their lives in the attacks and more than 2,300

were injured. “None of us will ever forget this day,” Bush said. The Historical & Cultural Society of Clay County is hosting an exhibit at the Hjemkomst Center in Moorhead featuring photographs of Ground Zero one month after the horrifying terrorist attacks took place. The exhibit titled “Aftermath: Images from Ground Zero” conveys the many emotions behind the events that took place at Ground Zero just a month after the primary attack. All images in the exhibit were provided by New York photographer Joel Meyerowitz. “Aftermath: Images from Ground Zero” is running now through Monday morning, with a special 10-year anniversary commemoration event Sunday, Sept. 11 at 2 p.m. “It will be an interfaith gathering of remembrance and peace,” Tim Jorgensen, event coordinator for the Historical & Cultural Society Museum, said. “As of right now, Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Islam, Catholicism, Baha’i, Lutheranism and Native Americans will all be represented at the commemoration event,” Jorgensen said. Moorhead Mayor Mark

Voxland will be delivering the introduction and opening remarks, and David Myers, Executive Director of the Center for Interfaith Projects, will be concluding the event. Many things have changed in the 10 years since Sept. 11, 2011. While the attacks instilled a sense of patriotism in all Americans, it also created a massive increase of racial profiling.

Bison Service Challenge Megan Toso News Reporter Attention NDSU students: You are official residents of the Fargo-Moorhead community. Doing your part to give back to this growing locality is an imperative part of the college experience. The Bison Service Challenge provides a way to get involved in volunteer service benefitting a wide array of programs in the F-M area.

We look forward to enthusiasm among students on campus regarding community engagement and service. -- Matt Skoy

The Bison Service Challenge was established in fall

News Features A&E Opinion Sports

2009. The Memorial Union’s Volunteer Network partnered with community betterment foundations such as Dakota Medical, Impact and FirstLink in order to increase the amount of volunteer hours that NDSU students complete. Matt Skoy, assistant director for service learning and civic engagement, admitted, “We couldn’t do this without the help of our partners.” Four student involvement groups including Residence Life, Greek Life, athletics and various student organizations compete amongst each other to see who can rack up the most hours. There is also an individual category so that single students can contend independently. Champions in each division of the Bison Service Challenge receive a $500 grant from the Dakota Medical Foundation to donate to their charity of choice and, of course, a coveted trophy.

The event was held at NDSU’s Grandmother Earth Gifts of Life Garden and featured Lakota tribal member and NDSU Ph.D. student Dereck Stonefish as chief spiritual leader and performer of the smudging ritual.

During the 2003 academic year, Pieri took a sabbatical in which he spent time on the Turtle Mountain Reservation trying to better understand the specific needs of Native Americans. In 2008, Pieri was appointed by former NDSU President Joseph Chapman to be released from teaching and focus primarily on furthering the connection between NDSU and tribal colleges.

When asked about what the ceremony meant to him, Pieri said, “This was a very humbling experience… It was a mixture of Native American and Western culture… A crossing of cultures.”

The Counseling Center will certify students in mental health first aid during the coming week.

Brittany Negaard News Reporter The NDSU Counseling Center will host a mental health first aid certification event beginning Monday in the Memorial Union. The interactive training program is similar to first aid training, but it will focus on mental health issues. William Burns, Ph. D., LP and director of the NDSU Counseling Center, will lead the program. “Participants will most importantly learn how to react and step in,” Burns said.

Participants will learn about the warning signs and risk factors for a variety of mental health issues, including anxiety, depression, eating disorders, psychotic disorders and alcohol and drug abuse. They will also learn about the available resources to help someone who might have a mental health problem, the five-step action plan to help an individual in crisis, the ways to begin understanding the needs of individuals requiring assistance. The four-day program will run from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m.

Sept. 12, 14, 15 and 16. This will be the first session of its kind to take place at NDSU, but Burns plans to host one each semester. The training is open to all faculty, staff and students on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration is limited to 25 participants and there is a $20 fee for the cost of materials. Anyone interested can contact the NDSU Counseling Center at 212 Ceres Hall or by phone at (701) 231-7671. Those seeking more information on Mental Health First Aid can visit www.mentalhealthfirstaid.org.

Library off to rocky start Katerina Voronova News Reporter After a long summer, the NDSU library has made some changes and updates for the current school year. Recently, however, the library has experienced an electronic resources crash. “Due to a catastrophic hardware failure, the library catalog will be unavailable until further notice,” Reserves and Evening Supervisor Janine Kuntz said in an email last week. “This means that students will not be able to access electronic reserves during this time.” Students could get temporary copies of the materials they needed for their assignments, but the library was closed over Labor Day weekend and electronic resources could not be accessed. As of Wednesday afternoon, most of the resources were back online. This crash happened during a time of transition for the library, as it updates itself to meet the demands of the quickly developing campus. Right now the library is working on updating their website to make it easier to navigate and more convenient for students. Students are encouraged to take a brief survey on the library’s website to provide feedback on what they would like the website to look like in the fu-

Features A second chance Fargo hot spot: Kroll's diner at love ‘Bachelorette’ contestant named new ‘Bachelor’ Linda Vasquez Features Editor For those of you who enjoy watching love form itself on “The Bachelor,” you’re in for a treat. ABC officially announced Tuesday that the new bachelor for the 16th installment to the franchise will be Ben Flajnik. Name sound familiar? Originally on “The Bachelorette,” Flajnik’s proposal was rejected by Ashley Hebert on the season finale now leading to his second shot at love.

Originally on ‘The Bachelorette,’ Flajnik’s proposal was rejected by Ashley Hebert on the season finale, now leading to his second shot at love. After Hebert broke his heart, romance rumors arose that Flajnik was dating Jennifer Love Hewitt when Hewitt tweeted “Watching ‘The Bachelorette’! I love u Ben!! Take this rose I have for u! Choose me!!!!:)” in July. After the comments caused a stir, Hewitt denied the rumors. She recently told Ryan Seacrest in an interview that she was looking “for something pop culture to sort of tweet about.” “ I’m new to the Twitter situation. I wanted to have fun with the tweeters out there in the world,” Hewitt said. “So, I sent out funny tweets about Ben F., and then it got all sort of like blown out of proportion or whatever, and now it’s like — the rumor mill is crazy.” According to abc.com, Flajnik is looking for a woman to start a family with, and “potential candidates should know that he has a very special place in his heart and his life for his Jack Russell Terrier, Scotch.” The 28-year-old winemaker from Sonoma, Calif. will make his first official appearance on Sept. 12 as the new bachelor during the season finale of the “Bachelor Pad,” a show that pairs bachelors and bachelorettes from past seasons who compete against each other until one is left standing. Will Flajnik finally find a wife to start a family with or will his proposal be rejected again? Only time will tell, or in this case, love. The 16th season of “The Bachelor” debuts January 2012 on ABC.

Whenever hunger strikes, Kroll’s is there Andrew Koch Contributing Writer You're lost, super hungry and you cannot find any place to eat at in your vicinity, but then you see this vibrant light from the distance. Its shiny tint blinds your eyes, but then you realize it’s a restaurant! Should you give it a try, or should go hungry? James Johnson, a junior majoring in engineering, says, “Kroll's has the best shakes in town. There is nothing more refreshing than grabbing a burger and a shake at this place.” If you have never driven by Kroll's, it’s hard to miss once you locate it.

You can get a cheap meal here and enjoy the spectacular scenery Krolls has to offer. -- Rick Jaeger, Kroll’s general manager. “It is certainly a unique dining experience. It is shiny and cozy, and in my opinion it has the best ambiance to it in town,” Kroll’s General Manager, Rick Jaeger said. “People drive by it, and stop by just to ask me about the place.” Jaeger – like the people who drive by it – was also intrigued by its presence in Fargo. “I used to be a kitchen manager at Perkins, then one day I saw this diner and it was a place that I have al-

comparison to the original Kroll's in Bismarck; however, the Kroll's here in Fargo is a modular style diner,” Jaeger said. “It was shipped here from Florida, and it has never changed since.” If you are still on the fence about making a trip to dine out at Kroll's, this could help change your mind. “We get killed by college kids ... on a nightly basis because we are open 24 hours a day. I still enjoy it though because business is always booming around here,” he said. 24 hours a day? Isn't Perkins and Denny’s also open that late? Why would it be better to stop at Kroll's? “Our shakes and burgers are our money makers. You can get a cheap meal here and enjoy the spectacular scenery Krolls has to offer,” Jaeger enthusiastically said. “Plus there are only five Kroll's located across the state, so it is sort of a cool thing to be able to say that you have been here.” This is something that Perkins and Denny’s cannot offer: a chance to make a pit stop to a rare diner. “We are going to continue sticking to what works best for us: serving up our awesome shakes and fresh burgers. However, we are currently looking for new Kroll's ladies,” Jaeger said.

Matt Nathanson brings modern love to the Fargo Theatre Cate Ekegren Spectrum Staff The lights dimmed as Matt Nathanson made his entrance at the Fargo Theatre. He walked out to a full crowd as Destiny’s Child “Bootylicious� started playing on the loud speakers, “I don’t think you can handle this!�

“

I just love music. I’m a nerd for it. Everything I do funnels into these songs. -- Matt Nathanson, singer/songwriter. Nathanson, a songwriter and musician out of San Francisco, took a break from touring with Maroon 5 and Train to bring his talent to Fargo for the first time ever. Fargo was one of the very first stops on the All Night Noise Tour, Nathanson’s current headlining tour. He started the show by playing “Mercy� from his latest album, “Modern Love.� It was the perfect song to start with as fans rushed to the stage to be closer to the band. To everyone’s surprise, Nathanson then broke out in a cover of Florence and the Machine’s “Dog Days Are Over� leading into his own “Pretty the

World� from his 2003 album, “Beneath These Fireworks.� It was a flawless transition. After the more upbeat sound “Modern Love,� Nathanson compared the next song to giving the middle finger. “Queen of K(nots) is for everyone who has been in a relationship with a downright evil person,� he explained. With punchy guitar chords and a hard rock edge, Nathanson couldn’t have been more accurate with his description. It was a fun song, especially when the band broke into a cover of ‘80s favorite “Tainted Love� in the middle of the song. From there, Nathanson sang a lot of songs from his new album released in June 2011 and even threw in a couple of songs from his previous successful albums “Beneath These Fireworks� and “Some Mad Hope.� Most of the songs played next were calmer and they highlighted the lyrics and instrumentals. However, the band still switched things up and played covers of more ‘80s classics such as “Jesse’s Girl� and “Heat of the Moment,� as well as Simon and Garfunkel and U2 originals. After a brief intermission, Nathanson and his band got the fans involved singing and clapping along to “Faster� before ending with “Come on Get Higher,� his double-platinum selling hit from album “Some Mad Hope.� It was the perfect ending to a fantastic experi-

I had the opportunity to talk to Matt Nathanson before his concert and ask him a few questions: Are you excited to come to Fargo? Matt: I’m super psyched. I’ve never played in Fargo. I feel like I’m winning here. I feel like it’s a medal of honor. We don’t have very many adventures left, we tour so much. I’m super looking forward to it. What’s your favorite thing about touring? Matt: It’s to be able to have that human connection every night. It’s all very personal. The songs don’t really come to life until they are bouncing off people and until you’re feeling that energy and people are taking the songs as their own. That doesn’t happen until you play live. The important piece of making a record is taking the record out and giving it to people. What is your favorite song to perform live?

It’s about connection. It’s about community. It’s nice we get to rock out and hang, sometimes we bust into a White Snake cover, sometimes we bust into a Justin Bieber cover. You never know what is going to happen. It’s fun! Where do find the inspiration to write as much music as you do? Matt: I find it everywhere. It’s a terrible answer but it’s true. I just love music. I’m a nerd for it. Everything I do funnels into these songs. Everything I do funnels into the experience that makes these songs. Do you have any advice for aspiring singers and songwriters? Matt: You’ve got to be smart enough to navigate and too stupid to stop. You’ve got to get smart enough to know what’s right and what’s wrong and where the best way to move is and you have to be real dumb to keep moving because so many people tell you and so many signs tell you, “Oh you’re not as good as this person.� It’s not about pacing yourself against other people.

Creative director leaves ‘Halo 4’ team Steven Strom Staff Writer Earlier this year at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), Microsoft announced that development had begun on “Halo 4,� the next entry in the Halo Universe and the first direct sequel to the Master Chief saga since “Halo 3.� Ironically, this came as something of a surprise to those in the industry considering developer Bungie, creator of the series, had left Microsoft and consequently the Halo franchise in order to pursue new intellectual properties. Taking up their mantle is 343 Industries, Microsoft’s own home-built design team created solely for the thankless job of creating new content in the Halo franchise. Faith in the company was shaken earlier this week with the departure of 343 Industries Creative Director Ryan Payton. Payton was in

charge of the development team creating the next Halo trilogy, known as the “Reclaimer Trilogy.� Speaking with major gaming blog Kotaku, Payton said, “I had a great run at Microsoft. I don't regret one day of it, but after a few years, there came a point where I wasn't creatively excited about the project anymore.� Despite his departure from the project, Payton wants to make absolutely sure that no one believes he has lost faith in the project. Instead he claims, “The Halo I wanted to build was fundamentally different and I don't think I had built enough credibility to see such a crazy endeavor through.� Payton’s apprehension with the size of future Halo installments is probably not unfounded. The franchise is certainly no longer the only blockbuster shooter franchise on the market, nor

even the biggest. Still, the last installment in the series, “Halo: Reach� remains one of the highest played games on Xbox Live a year after its launch. This is of course due to the huge popularity of the franchise, which almost single-handedly legitimized first-person shooters on consoles. It’s quite easy to understand that someone in such a position of authority might get cold feet when approaching such a scrutinizing task. What remains to be seen, however, is what sort of effect his departure will have on the general public’s opinion of the project. Fanboys are already up in arms about the departure of the trilogy from its parent developer, and this announcement will no doubt add fuel to the flame of this vocal minority. Only time will tell if 343 Industries can live up to the E3 hype.

Get help if you have been sexually assaulted Alysia Larson Contributing Writer This is not an easy subject to talk about, but it is necessary. NDSU’s sexual assault resources suggest that about one in four college women will be sexually assaulted

and 80 to 90 percent of these assaults will be by someone the victim knows. These are scary facts, but knowing them will help increase awareness of your surroundings. If it ever does

happen to you, these are some steps to help you deal with the aftermath. NDSU sexual assault resources urge you to do the following if you became a victim.

Call 911 The first thing to do is to call 911 if you are still in danger. Most victims don’t report rape or sexual assault cases because they don’t want to acknowledge the fact that it has happened to them. Usually, however, the offender is not a first-time assailant. Telling the police could help them stop the aggressor from commiting future attacks. Look for safety The next step is to get to a safe place and call a trusted friend. Being alone may seem like the route to go if you feel ashamed, or if you just don’t want to acknowledge it happened, but instead call a trusted friend and let them help and support you. Get help Call the 24-hour hotline for the Rape and Abuse Crisis Center at 701-2937273. Discuss your options. You do have the power to decide for yourself, but you don’t have to do it alone. Decide if you want to report it to the police and if you want to seek medical help. Getting medical attention is always a good option because you may need to see if you have been drugged or have any other injuries. Also, having a sexual assault nurse give you an examination will help because they collect evidence in case you do want to file a report. If you don’t want to file the report right away, you don’t have to. The evidence can always be collected before and you can file the report later. If you do decide to see a nurse examiner, try not to urinate, take a shower or change clothes. Getting all the evidence from anywhere – including yourself – will be a huge help in a police investigation. Whether it be a supportive friend or family member, or even professional help, talk to someone. Remember you aren’t alone. File a report Consider making a report to the NDSU vice president for student affairs. There is an on-campus judicial process for disciplinary action if the assailant is a student. You can receive assistance if the person who assaulted you is in your classes or lives in your residence hall You can also receive academic help. Just remember that you have options and that someone will be there to help and support you through this if you let them. If you need additional resources visit: http://www. ndsu.edu/fileadmin/studentlife/PDF_Files/Codeof-

StudentBehavior.pdf so that you know what happened is something to be taken seriously and not ignored. Another link that may be helpful is the student policy for sexual assault, which can be found at http://www. ndsu.edu/policy/603.htm.

Remember to be safe and if anything makes you feel uncomfortable, get out of the situation, get to a safe place and ask for help.

Honest Truth Dear Bison Pack, I moved in with a long-time friend just last month. It was great at first because we finally had the chance to live with each other and hang out more than we have in the past. Although he has been my friend since grade school, I’m starting to think that being roommates was a big mistake. When I get home from work the kitchen is always a mess, his clothes are always on the floor and he never puts the things he uses away. And the worst part: When I want to spend time with my girlfriend he always wants to tag along or tries to be involved in our plans. I know he just wants to hang, but I want to spend alone time with my girl and I don’t want to spend every living minute of my time with the guy that I already live with! It’s just frustrating that I have to tell a 22year-old man to pick up after himself all the time and it’s gone so far that I've picked up after him myself because I hate a dirty apartment. I don’t know if I should tell him how I really feel because I’m afraid he will get hurt, after all he is my friend. Got any advice? Sincerely, Frustrated Roommate Dear Frustrated Roommate, First, don’t ever pick up after him again. Last time I checked, being on your own means picking up after yourself. You are not his mom and you are definitely not his maid. If the guy has cleanliness issues, don’t hold back. Tell him. He might not even know it bothers you when the apartment is a mess. Communicate your frustration by telling him that it’s not fair for you to always be picking up after him. I’m sure that as the adult he is, he will understand. You could even try making a schedule that switches off kitchen duty every other day, so that the kitchen is always clean. Second, this third wheel issue is easily solvable. Next time you and your girlfriend want to catch a movie or go on a romantic date, don’t plan it in front of him. Text each other, agree what you will be doing that night and go without him. I know it sounds kind of sneaky, but he will realize it’s your time to be alone with your girlfriend. And even though you live with him, try planning one day out of the week to hang out with the poor guy. Not only will this “bromance” day let him know you have a designated time just for him, but it will also give you more time with your girlfriend. -Tough Bison Even though moving in with your long-time friend may seem like a foolproof idea at first, you two may look like fools in the end. In my experience, I have had to deal with almost the exact same issues as you. My first suggestion: talk to him about his horrible housekeeping habits. If nothing changes, the next course of action would be to do the dishes. When I say this, I mean do only your dishes. By leaving his dishes piled up in the sink it will send the message that you're finished being his maid. If that doesn't work, just place his dirty dishes in his bed. He'll eventually get the hint. Second suggestion: Tell him how excited you are about spending quality one-on-one time with your girlfriend. He'll then more or less feel awkward about being the third wheel. The Bottom line is that you need to tell him exactly what is bothering you, otherwise it will be a never-ending cycle. -Insightful Bison From what I can tell, there is a misunderstanding on the rules of engagement within your apartment. You may need to elaborate the potential you see for your shared living space and sell tidiness and courtesy to him that way. For the time being though, you will just have to trooper through it. If he wants to hang out, hang out with him! You’re his bro, that’s why he’s living with you. If you want to be with you’re girlfriend, be with your girlfriend, but maybe at her place! The man-cave is the means by which we remain free, and as your brother in arms, I must impress upon you that this dwelling is sacred! There are a few things more annoying than when your wingman won’t accept a challenge to Mario Kart because he’s busy dabbling in chivalry; it happened to me last night, and I was less then pleased. Heed my advice; if not for you, then for your fellow man. -Bison 1997

Arts and Entertainment Art cinema series begins Nick Proulx A&E Editor The Art Cinema Series kicks off at the Fargo Theatre Monday night with a showing of “The Short Films of the Quay Brothers.” Kristi Groberg, assistant professor of art history has used the series, put on by NDSU Division of Fine Arts, as a means of learning outside of the classroom. “I started it in the 20052006 academic year purely as an educational tool,” she explained in an interview. “Our goal as a department is to expose our students to art cinema, to get them into a real movie theatre to see particularly beautiful, challenging or bizarre films on the big screen,” she continued. The films are viewable by the public, and Groberg pointed out that the series

has picked up a following within the community since it began. With the help of colleagues, students and cinema buffs alike, Groberg selects true art cinema films that leave the moviegoers pondering art and its place in both society and education. “We try to select cutting edge films by unusual or cult film-makers, classics, documentaries that are often not available in the States, or films that don’t make it into regular movie theatres because they are obscure or attract a small audience,” she said. All movies throughout the year show at 7 p.m., and tickets can be bought for $5 with a student ID. More information and movie trailers can be found at the Division of Fine Arts website.

Films being shown this year: Sept. 12 “The Short Films of the Quay Brothers” Oct. 10 “Dracula: Pages from a Virgin’s Diary” and “The Eye Like A Great Balloon” Nov. 14 “Rembrandt's J’Accuse” Dec. 5 “Wings of Desire” Feb. 6 “Van Gogh: Brush with Genius” April 2 “Black Orpheus Monday” April 30 “Control”

Trendy fall looks: Look your best in any lecture hall Cassie Cariveau Contributing Writer The September issue is the fashion magazines’ ultimate volume of the year. Most have over 500 pages in them, and some are big enough to be your new school textbook. But these annual large issues have a reason for including so much: They show off all of fall’s latest trends from runway collections that were revealed last spring. Reviewing hundreds of pages of fashion magazines

and blogs have produced what trends the stylish college student will be wearing this fall. Women: Every fall you hear or see the same thing: neutrals, blacks, warm colors. This season is the total opposite. Many designers and retailers are going for more jeweled-tone brights to charge up your autumn fashion. From bright green pea coats to fuchsia blouses, these colors will insert some pizzazz into the otherwise boring neutrals of your closet.

Many retrograde and block patterns were seen on the runway this fall. Some pieces included ‘70s eccentric shapes; some designers (like Marc Jacobs) incorporated full-outfits of polka dots. Others put in the signature cheetah-print that seems to be a hit every other season. All looks are ideal, but it’s difficult to wear a full outfit of them. Try a polka dot blouse (Forever 21 has many affordable tops), or add your mix of animal print with accessories like belts, shoes or bracelets to show off your

3D without tyranny of glasses Andrew Tran Contributing Writer Eighty-eight years ago, 3D technology was created as a trivial way to entertain an audience. The advancement of 3D technology has been slow, but where is this technology going and why do viewers still have to wear those pesky glasses to enjoy it? 3D display has been around for a long time and the basic principle has not changed. The basis of all 3D technology revolves around how eyes perceive distance; the eyes rotate toward each other as the image is close and away when the image gets further away. Taking advantage of this, 3D can be applied to any digital screen – that is, with the awkward glasses. The glasses play a critical role in making sure that the image is split properly so that each eye sees the same image at different angles. Ways to do this vary, with the most advanced being the polarized glasses (the ones that look like sunglasses) and the oldest being the red and blue film glasses. These glasses are not necessary if there is a way for each eye to see a different image. 3D TV does have the potential to be glasses-free. In

fact, such a TV was built in Japan, but it was never mass produced for a critical economic reason: Not many companies are willing to produce a lot of 3D material, let alone 3D material specifically for the new glasses-free technology. 3D material varies depending on different display types. Polarized glasses require an image to be duplicated on a polarized screen, which lets each eye receive a different image. This creates a blurry, “outlined” image that is difficult to see without the spectacles. Any glasses-free display requires the image to be split on the screen itself (there are actually two images). There is no easy way to hash out glasses-free material simply because polarized glasses are already being used. Realistically, there are many ways to display 3D. A simple testament of this is 3D YouTube material. YouTube provides four ways to produce the 3D effect on videos: One method requires some form of colored glasses while the other three methods are glasses-free. The only other glassesfree 3D technology lies in the hands of Nintendo with the Nintendo 3DS. There have been attempts at 3D cell phones but to little pur-

pose. People who use cell phones generally will only do so for a few seconds at a time, and thus the 3D technology would be more of a hindrance than an acceptable perk. Perhaps there is a lesson to be taught from the ideas of the 3D cell phone. 3D technology, while very entertaining, might just be too inconvenient to apply to every digital appliance. There is also a chance of side effects with the use of 3D displays such as motion sickness and sore eyes, so putting the technology on phones might make it unusable for some. From an entertainment standpoint, 3D displays for movies and TV shows are comparable to the advent of the color TV way back when all shows and movies were in black and white. Eyes see in color, so naturally the next step for colorless television was to add color. In the same manner, making 3D entertainment would be the next step for all digital media. So where does 3D technology actually stand? For now it is just an optional feature on a few, expensive television sets. There is no doubt though that as technology advances, 3D will be included in every TV set.

wild side. Although it’s hard to say goodbye to summer clothes, you shouldn’t put dresses away quite yet. You can still wear those floral prints and bright colors without looking too summery by adding dark accessories. A black belt around a floral dress with leather boots could be an option, or even adding a jacket to complete your ensemble. Chic lace dresses are popular to invest in since they are geared toward colder weather and can be worn casually and formally.

Men: Focus on bright colors this fall, just as much as women. Unlike jewel tones, you should look for royal colors of blue, green and red to be worn as sweaters – maybe even dare to wear colored pants as well! Striped patterns will be forever popular, but this fall brings a focus on horizontal stripes. Whether it is long sleeve or short, under a blazer or outerwear, this look will get many heads to turn.

De-stress out Keith Bistodeau Contributing Writer Now that we are a few weeks in to the school year, a lot of us are realizing how stressful college can be. With classes, homework, jobs and trying to have a social life, you can go pretty bonkers trying to balance all of these things. Studies done by Harvard and Princeton have shown that college students tend to sleep up to two hours less per night during the school year. These studies also show that the amount of time students devote to

themselves practically disappears. I will be the first to admit that I fall into this category, but fret not; you do not have to follow my lead. Here are a few artsy tips to help you relax and have some metime: Read a book: Not only will you be expanding your vocabulary and taking your mind off things, but simple acts such as reading have been known to help lower blood pressure and increase REM (Dreaming Cycles) during sleep.

jackets and cardigans are popping up everywhere this month, and you don’t need to play a sport to wear something this catchy. Already comfortable and casual, throwing something on over any plain T-shirt will look stylish. Check out Forever 21 Men or Gap for many style choices. Whatever you decide to wear, it should show your personality and style wherever you go.

casso, drawing or sketching is a great way to expand the creative area of your brain, which sometimes does not get worked during the school week. Drawing also helps to increase quick motor function and cognitive brain function. Walk in the park: Getting outside for some exercise helps to increase your blood flow and allows for your body to recuperate from the long week of sitting in desks. If none of these things interest you, find something that you enjoy doing and set up some time for yourself. The school year has just started, and a little break every now and then can help keep you from stressing out in the months to come.

Opinion Minot: lest we forget Jaime Jarmin Opinion Editor Now that the Black Eyed Peas have left the Magic City, let's not forget about the disaster that was left behind. Sure, Josh Duhamel and the Peas raised an estimated $1 million from their concert that will go directly to the flood relief efforts, but hopefully this won’t be where the help stops for this community. Many students at NDSU are from Minot and have been affected by the flood. Perhaps you had the heartwrenching task of sorting through debris from your home this past Labor Day weekend.

If there isn’t a constant stream of assistance reaching the community of Minot, it will become no more than one of the many the ghost towns already scattering our state.

in Minot. The majority of my extended family lives in Minot, some of which have lost everything. Those who have lost their homes include my six aunts and uncles, twelve cousins and my widowed grandma. My grandma is an avid quilter, but unfortunately all of her sewing machines were ruined in the flood. This flood has really taken a toll on her spirit. Thankfully she just recently moved into her 12- by 40-foot FEMA trailer that includes two bedrooms (with two bunk beds), a living room and a kitchen. Now that Minot is on the slow road to recovery, there is worry that most of its residents will relocate in order to start over. “I’ve heard of a lot of people moving away, like single parents who couldn’t afford to stay there,” Carlson said. According to MinotDailyNews.com, “The ‘For Sale’ signs go up and the residents move on. Some are leaving the city entirely.” In order for Minot to come close to the condition it was in prior to the flood, there needs to be more philanthropic efforts like what Duhamel and the Black Eyed Peas have done for Minot. Perhaps even the commander in chief should take some time out of his schedule to witness how bad it actually has become up there; he certainly didn’t hesitate to visit the tornado ravished communities down south. My grandpa’s reasoning for Obama’s absence is that there aren’t enough votes in our state to really alter his re-election. Maybe old grandpa is on to something? If there isn’t a constant stream of assistance reaching the community of Minot, it will become no more than one of the many ghost towns already scattering our state.

Changing the game Derek Gaffney Staff Writer Last week a report came out of the Institute for Policy Studies which states that 25 of the top 100 highest paid CEOs made more money last year than their company paid in federal taxes. Couple the results of the report with the condition of our country,and the seemingly impossible budget crisis, and you’ve got a hot-button issue just waiting for people to start screaming about. The study is entitled “The Massive CEO Rewards for Tax Dodging,” and it’s causing quite a stir. However, the Institute for Policy Studies isn’t exactly the most unbiased organization ever, and the results of their study are a bit flawed, at best. But that isn’t to say they don’t have a point, because they do; they’re just trying to make the wrong one. Sure, we could get all up in arms over the fact that many CEOs make more than their company pays in taxes, but it’s not like the companies are doing anything illegal (usually) by not paying very much in taxes. The compa-

nies are following the law and using tax breaks and offshore tax havens and all sorts of convoluted ways to avoid paying taxes, and it’s all legal – it’s written right there in our laws that they can do that. Personally, I would have a bit of trouble characterizing obeying the law as “tax dodging,” but apparently IPS didn’t. Complaining that corporations and companies don’t

If we really have a problem with companies paying next to nothing in taxes or the people who sit at home all day and live off welfare, it’s up to us as a society to change our rules. pay enough in taxes is like complaining about the guy you think is abusing the welfare system down the street. Both entities use the government’s laws to their advantage, and yet we get angry

with the people, not the government itself. I don’t really understand why we point fingers at the people who are just obeying the law, since we the people are the ones who continue to allow their behavior even when we think it sucks our system dry. You see, it’s not those people who are using the system to their advantage that are sucking it dry, it’s the people like us who refuse to change the system. We love to complain that the welfare mother just sits at home and pops out babies or that eBay didn’t pay any federal taxes last year, but we refuse to actually change anything. We hate the player instead of the game. The point the IPS study should be making is that our system is flawed and it needs to change. this single point can apply to a lot of government programs at the moment. Medicare is paying out something like three times the amount of money that gets paid into it. That kind of spending won’t be able to last much longer, but trying to change anything about Medicare is like pulling teeth without any

Novocain. With the country going further and further into debt, we need to make some changes, but we don’t have to start slashing things. We just need to change the system a little bit. We can close the tax loopholes that companies use to pay fewer taxes. We can take a look at our laws and the way people use and abuse them and figure out how to rewrite them so that only the people the laws are meant to help are helped. If we really have a problem with companies paying next to nothing in taxes or people who sit at home all day and live off welfare, it’s up to us as a society to change our rules. The best part of living in this country is that if we really don’t like the way the game is being played, we can change its rules. We need to stop hating and blaming the players and start changing the game. Derek is a third-year professional in the college of pharmacy.

Anne Carlson, a senior majoring in family and consumer science education, grew up in Minot and was fortunate enough to not lose her house to the flood. “My parents’ house was behind the secondary dikes in the valley, so they only got a little water in the basement,” Carlson said. “We were really blessed.” Even though I grew up in the Red River Valley, I am also affected by the catastrophic flooding the Souris River has caused to the Minot community.

Cut it out

“ A second look at sarcasm Rylee Nelson Spectrum Staff Sarcasm can be funny. Sarcasm can relate irritation. Sarcasm can also hurt feelings and result in division. This particular relational form is extremely pervasive in our society, accepted in several of the current generations. For most of us, sarcasm has taken the form of a 207th bone; a seemingly fundamental part of who we are, even slipping out unintentionally. The usage of sarcasm

ranges from simple remarks such as, “great, my car doesn’t start,” to more vicious comments such as saying “wow, great job,” to someone who is obviously struggling. Sarcasm’s simple nature lends itself to being widely accepted although most people don’t take a critical look at its consequences. The word sarcasm comes from a Greek word meaning “to rend” (specifically flesh), and its English definition includes words like “sharp” and “cutting.” Most of us don’t mean to rend or cut our friends in any sense.

However, even the simplest forms of sarcasm can leave others negatively affected. As listeners, most of us have adapted to compensate for these sorts of remarks. We have either learned to simply brush off comments like this or simply stay away from people that embrace them. One of the major problems sarcasm presents is a general inefficiency in communication. First of all, it doesn’t at all semantically express what you are trying to convey. In fact, by definition, sarcasm consists of saying exactly the opposite of what you are trying to propose.

Boiled down sarcasm looks something like this: ‘I don’t really want to be a jerk and call you out, but I will say the opposite of what I mean in a witty tone so that I can make fun of you and still be friends.’

Second, it directly attacks the person, place or thing in question. In most cases, communication with others doesn’t thrive on degrading the other. Why communicate with someone if they are simply degrading me or someone else?

Procrastination: Bite your tongue Action’s parasite Ryan LaPlante Contributing Writer Have you ever found yourself mindlessly clicking around on Facebook at eleven o’clock at night when you have an unwritten paper due early the very next day? Have you ever begun to get ready for class on a Monday morning only to realize that putting off doing your laundry for the entire weekend has left you without a single clean pair of socks or a presentable pair of jeans?

“The practice of getting something done, starting with the small jobs and gradually stepping it up to the bigger ones, will help build self-discipline and confidence.

into a seemingly insurmountable obstacle. The unfinished tasks weigh down upon our minds, causing a continuously high level of stress that produces nearly constant mental fatigue. Speaking from personal experience, I know how this is. Having observed this habit in myself and in others, it’s easy for me to see what a debilitating ailment habitual procrastination can be. Yet, like many habits, it is quite possible to break. Bad habits are an erosion of self-discipline, the good habit by which we control and order our actions. For those of us who find it hard not to procrastinate, I think we should begin the solution where the problem began – in the little things. The practice of getting something done, starting with the small jobs and gradually stepping it up to the bigger ones, will help build self-discipline and confidence. This increases our ability to tackle the tasks that hamper us. Maybe you’ll finish reading this article and think, “Hey, he’s right! I’ll try working on the little things tomorrow!” How about giving it a shot right now?

If these or any similar occurrences have befallen you, then you could be a victim of chronic put-it-off-until-thelast-minute syndrome, also known as procrastination. In all seriousness though, the human tendency to procrasRyan is a freshman in the tinate can affect us in many college of engineering and ways, both large and small. architecture. Procrastination is often manifested in the delaying of the performance of any given task or obligation, maybe an undesired one, such as taking out the garbage or cleaning the bathroom. People form a habit of stalling in this way to varying degrees. Some put off the little things in which a delay merely causes a passing moment of last-minute desperation. Others develop a pattern of procrastination to a point where they find it hard to accomplish anything meaningful in a timely manner. In the latter case, procrastination turns into a serious issue. It becomes the cause of a critical lack of self-discipline or motivation. It often begins in small matters that cause some little amount of consternation but not enough to cause us to change to a more disciplined approach to everyday activities. Like other habits, it starts to compound as we put off increasingly more important tasks. We may find ourselves missing critical deadlines in school, work or at home. This can erode self-confidence, further impairing our ability to accomplish or even establish goals. Like a parasite, procrastination eats away at the motivation to act until the work just piles up

Kristen Jewel Fennell Contributing Writer Have you ever said something so offensive that you wanted to bite your tongue off, throw it on the ground and stomp on it until you could take back what you said? I know I have. Whether it is by accident or not, once you say something that hurts someone, you can never take it back. Across campus I have heard people say many offensive things to each other. As soon as a person sees that they have gone too far, they instantly try to save face by saying things like, “It was just a joke,” or “You know I didn’t mean it like that.” But the simple fact is that no matter how much you try to remedy the situation, your words can never be unsaid. Those hurtful words are remembered, possibly for a

lifetime. Even innocent things that you might not think are offensive can seem to be by the people around you. An expression I have heard is, “Oh my god, are you retarded?” That can be extremely hurtful to the people around you.

But the simple fact is that no matter how much you try to remedy the situation, your words can never be unsaid. Those hurtful words are remembered, possibly for a lifetime.

What’s your Opinion

Third, sarcasm is incredibly ambiguous. It gives the listener no concrete information other than the fact that the speaker is obviously either irritated or trying to crack a joke. It is up to the listener to figure out what the speaker is talking about if they are in fact intending to insult you and what it is they are specifically referring to. This is an awful lot of work to do simply in toleration of someone else’s conduct. If we applied this to other areas of interactions, we see opposite correlations. If you call me an idiot or call me lazy I am not likely to laugh it off and put in the extra effort to deal with it internally. Sarcasm’s ambiguous nature is what slips it into the arena of acceptable conduct. Boiled down sarcasm looks something like this: “I don’t

really want to be a jerk and call you out, but I will say the opposite of what I mean in a witty tone so that I can make fun of you and still be friends.” So what ought we do in place of this popularly favored style of interaction? I propose good old fashion wit. Take some time and formulate an intellectual jest that provides some actual sensible information for the purpose of humoring others. Let us all take a little pride in our efforts; after all wit is funnier anyways. However you decide on interacting with others, think before you speak, for you may unintentionally “rend” someone the wrong way.

These expressions associate you with a bad demeanor. They make it sound like being handicapped is a bad thing, when in reality it is just a part of who that person is. Another thing people forget is that their words do make an impact. You can make or break someone’s entire day with just one simple sentence. You do not get to laugh at someone and forget that it ever happened because they probably will not. You play a part in making someone who they are. They will remember that you called them fat and destructive behaviors may follow. Anorexia, low self-esteem or even depression can result from your degrading words toward others. Even if you do not mean something in a negative way, it does not mean it is not being received in a negative way. If you are angry or you want to say something rude, bite your tongue! I am not telling you not to stand up for yourself, but do not let

your temper get the best of you. Sometimes not saying something snippy is taking the higher road. Keeping it to yourself can help you learn self-control while sparing someone else’s feelings. Remember that childhood phrase: If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all. We were not taught that for kicks and giggles. Fortunately there is an easy solution to avoid all of this. You have to know when it is the time and place to talk or joke about certain things and when a specific moment is not. Think before you speak or you may end up hurting a friend’s feelings with careless words. There are so many things words enable us to say. Do not let yourself be limited by thoughtless ones.

Sports Rivalry renewed in Grand Forks

NDSU prepares for Saint Francis

Travis Jones/The Spectrum

UND’s women’s volleyball team beat the Bison Tuesday in a packed arena in Grand Forks.

Travis Jones Sports Editor After defeating UND last season in Fargo, the NDSU volleyball team traveled to Grand Forks on Tuesday to take on the Sioux in the Betty Engelstad Sioux Center. With 2,397 fans out to witness the contest, UND took advantage of the large home crowd, winning in four sets. UND took set number one 25-17, largely due to seven errors on the Bison. Senior setter Jennifer Lopez had five kills in the first set to go along with seven assists, proving why she was Summit League Offensive Player of the Week. Junior Megan Lambert-

son went down on the first play of the set with an ankle injury that forced the Bison to find contribution from elsewhere on the team. The second set featured NDSU bouncing back to tie the match at 1-1. Lopez added 10 more assists, hooking up mostly with Brynn Joki who had six kills in the set. Andrea Henning dug out five serves to put her match total at eight. UND took back the momentum in the third set as they cruised to a 25-19 win. Lopez added eight more assists in the third set, four of those going to senior Jenna Deyle who brought her kills to seven for the match. The Bison looked as though they were ready to force a fifth set and take the

air out of the Betty, but a late timeout by Sioux Head Coach Ashley Hardee helped contribute to a 9-1 UND run that would put the match away for the Sioux, 3-1. Lopez led the way for NDSU with 30 assists; she also contributed two aces, seven kills and five digs. Brynn Joki led the Bison in kills and returns with 11 and eight respectively. Andrea Henning led the team with 15 digs. Lauren Cammack had an impressive showing as she totaled 10 kills, four aces and 9 digs. The Bison will take on Iowa State Friday at 7 p.m. and Saturday at 1 p.m. in the Bentson Bunker Fieldhouse.

Questions answered Travis Jones Sports Editor In last’s week column, I had four questions pertaining to the opener for the football season. For the most part, all of them were answered with the expectations I had hoped for. The first question was how sophomore quarterback Brock Jensen would fare in his first opener as leader of the offense. Jensen operated the offense very efficiently for the Herd, and to me the most impressive part of Jensen’s game was his ability to sit in the pocket. Jensen did a great job of letting the plays develop and scanning all options. Jensen also looked comfortable with running the two-minute offense. This game was close for the first half, and for a while it looked like it was going to be a one-possession game at halftime. Jensen did a great job of moving the ball during the Bison’s final drive in the second quarter that led them to a touchdown and a 14-point lead at the half. All in all, Brock Jensen answered every question I had

about him. I think he showed why Coach Bohl and the rest of the staff dubbed him as the team’s starting quarterback. Granted we’ve only played one game against a visibly weaker football team, but I think he’ll continue to see success, especially with Warren Holloway lined up on his right side. My second question was how many big plays we would see out of the backfield. This was the only question that left me with any skepticism. D.J. McNorton and Sam Ojuri combined for 155 yards; most people thought McNorton would have that number on his own. The running game was sluggish to say the least in the first half, but it picked up in the third quarter with three big runs to the left sideline. We saw probably one so-called “big run” from Ojuri where he cut to the middle of the field and hurdled over a Lafayette defender. McNorton did have three touchdowns for the day during limited action as he sat for a good part of the second half. My third question was

After a strong season start, the Bison are looking to take on St. Francis Saturday at home.

Smith was probably more impressive as a receiver out of the slot as he switched from tailback to receiver this season. My final question was what the student section would look like, and I can speak for the general consensus and say that I was more than impressed with the showing. Even with the holiday weekend, the student section wasn’t full, but it was close. The fans also stayed into the late stages of the game even though it was out of reach. Even Lafayette’s head coach Frank Tavani mentioned that he was envious of the student support. This week’s game against Saint Francis will be the final before the Bison will head east to take on the Gophers at TCF Bank Stadium. Look for the running game to be established early and another strong showing from the defense.

the Football Championship Subdivision, a conference that includes former Bison foes Robert Morris, Central Connecticut State and Wagner. The Red Flash claimed a 1-10 record last season. “We're really pleased with many of the things we were able to accomplish [versus Lafayette]. We were able to throw the ball deep,” Bison head coach Craig Bohl said. Bohl is “really pleased with the energy on defense,” and is “looking forward to a big game this week against St. Francis.” The improvement in the passing game certainly bodes well for NDSU's chances this Saturday, as the deep ball was a boon for the Bison offense. Sophomore quarterback Brock Jensen connected with senior receiver Warren Holloway for two touchdowns on passes of 67 and 57 yards, an option the Bison haven't utilized to the utmost in recent seasons. Zach Vraa, the redshirt freshman receiver who was heralded as a game-changer for this Bison team, was taken out of Saturday's game with a broken collarbone and will likely be out

until at least November. “We'll start Ryan Smith,” Bohl said about filling the gap with Vraa out with the injury. “[Freshman] Trevor Gebhart will play an awful lot.” The running game got off to something of a slow start with the two-headed attack of DJ McNorton and Sam Ojuri. The pair began to run outside the tackles in the second half and combined for 155 yards and three touchdowns on the night, and will certainly be utilized in the contest versus the Red Flash. Perhaps the most glaring advantage in favor of the Bison over St. Francis lies off the field. Last season, the Red Flash averaged just 1,721 in attendance per home football game in a conference that isn't notorious for high attendances. Even with games in past seasons against Northern Iowa and Cal-Poly, St. Francis will likely be unprepared for the kind of hostile atmosphere NDSU fans are capable of producing. The game kicks off Saturday at 6 p.m.

Sports Soccer team closes out opening road trip in Montana

Volleyball opens home schedule against Iowa State Justin Tellinghuisen Contributing Writer

Corrie Dunshee Contributing Writer

NDSU’s women’s volleyball team is anticipating a tough task in the home opener against Big 12 opponent Iowa State, who also happens to be the 17th nationally ranked team. The Bison will host the Cyclones Friday night at 7 p.m. and Saturday at 1 p.m. in the Bentson Bunker Fieldhouse. This will be a welcome task for the team as they lost to UND on Tuesday night in four sets. Jennifer Lopez had 30 assists with seven kills. Brynn Joki had 11 kills while teammate Lauren Cammack was close behind with 10. Andrea Henning had a team-high 15 digs. With the loss to UND, the Bison have fallen to an early 6-3 record. Iowa State will be fresh off a victory over a previously undefeated team, the ninth nationally ranked Florida Gators. The Cyclones and Gators met on Monday with the Cyclones prevailing in five sets. Cyclone senior

The Bison women’s soccer team is headed to Montana this weekend for their final regular season tournament as well as their final road trip before opening a sixgame home stand beginning next Friday.

Kelsey Peterson had a career-high 15 kills, and Alison Landwehr recorded 52 assists and 11 digs. The hardest part for the Bison this weekend will be finding a way to stop Iowa State’s well-balanced attack. During the Cyclones last match against Florida, the Cyclones had four players with double-doubles. Iowa State is also returning five starters from last year’s

team that finished third in the Big 12 and eventually lost in the first round of the NCAA tournament. The Bison will also be trying to find a way to break the losing streak against Big 12 opponents.

NDSU faces this year, along with a handful of NCAA tournament qualifiers from last year. The Bison are slated to take on Northern Iowa, who is ranked 14th in the nation. Other NCAA tournament teams that Bison will face this season are Missouri, who advanced to the third round; Tulsa, who advanced to the second round; and Butler, who was eliminated in the first round.

The Herd improved their record to 3-1 last weekend with a 1-0 win on the road over Wisconsin Green Bay. Junior Brooklyn Dyce scored the lone goal for NDSU with an assist from senior Abbey Moenkedick. Kalani Bertsch continues her strong play early in the year with her second shutout and third victory of the year. NDSU doubled Green Bay as they had six shots on goal compared to

Green Bay’s three. The women will travel to Missoula, Mont. this weekend for two games in the Montana Tournament. The Bison will take on Montana on Friday and will wrap it up with Idaho on Sunday. Experience and youth have been the Bison’s strengths so far this season. “It’s really proven to be a great mix,” Benjamin Schneweis, director of soccer relations said, “with the young players learning from the more experienced ones each day. Within the group are some great leaders, and we have high expectations as a program. We’ve started out well, so now we need to just continue to work and improve as a unit.” The Herd open up their home schedule next Friday against Montana and their home stand will last until Oct. 7. Summit League play will begin for the Bison on Sept. 30. NDSU will also host UND on Sept. 25.
