Fundraising exceeds $500 million BY ALLISON HENDRIX staff writer
USU celebrated the end of a seven-â€?year-â€?long fundraising event Friday night with an announce-â€? ment from University President Stan Albrecht: The campaign raised $512,861,412. When the campaign was announced to the public in 2007, the goal presented was $200 mil-â€? lion dollars. Tim Vitale, director of Public Relations and Marketing, said reaching even that goal was uncer-â€? tain in the beginning since this was USUâ€™s first campaign of this kind. Consultants said to start with a more attainable goal. â€œConsultants didnâ€™t think that we were ready for a $100 million dollar campaign and the presi-â€? dent said â€˜Weâ€™re going to do that,â€™â€? Vitale said. â€œHe said $200 million and we hit that goal a year later, and the president said weâ€™re dou-â€? bling the goal to $400 million.â€? Vitale said when the announce-â€? ment was made that the president was doubling the original goal in

IT dept. filters donâ€™t always stop scams BY LEANN FOX staff writer
the ramp,â€? she said. â€œHe didnâ€™t slow down, didnâ€™t turn around when I yelled at him.â€? Payne said the man riding the bicycle never said any-â€? thing, looked back, stopped or slowed down. â€œHe clipped my stomach and just kept going,â€? Payne said, â€œI donâ€™t think he cared. If he did notice, it wasnâ€™t a big deal to him so he just went on his way.â€? The collision threw Payneâ€™s balance off and nearly made her collide into the cement wall she was near. â€œI was shaken up and thrown off balance, luckily not enough to throw me into the concrete or the railing,â€? Payne said. â€œIt could have ended badly. I could have hit the concrete or the metal railing.â€? The university bike policy states bicycles must yield the right-â€?of-â€?way to pedestrians, as well as signal inten-â€? tions when approaching. Dunn said there are few places where bicycles are pro-â€? hibited on campus. Roadside sidewalks and other areas specifically marked, such as the ramp by the TSC where Payne was hit, are also forbidden. Payne said bicyclists failing to yield the right of way to pedestrians and ignoring signs is a growing problem on USU campus.
In the past month, USU students and faculty may have seen messages in their email inboxes warning them theyâ€™re out of storage space. The IT department is warn-â€? ing that these and other suspicious messages are hoaxes that should be avoided. Hackers use many methods to intercept email address-â€? es, according to IT Systems Administrator Allen Hill. One method is called â€œspear phishing,â€? where hackers create fake pages that look similar to university pages. Once students have entered his or her information, the screen will glitch and redirect them to the real university page. The hacker can then access a studentâ€™s email infor-â€? mation and every email contact within their account. Much of the data solen through hacking includes credit card numbers and social security numbers, Hill said. â€œThis hacking process is all based on gullibility,â€? he said. â€œIt is organized crime, and there is always a finan-â€? cial incentive.â€? According to the privacymatters.com, one hacking organization called the Shadowcrew network had an estimated 4,000 active members when in was founded in 2002. In less than two years, they made $5 million dollars trading 1.5 million stolen credit card numbers before being shut down in 2004. According to the website, hacking accounted for the largest number of compromised personal records 2012. Large brands such as Polo Ralph Lauren and DSW Shoes have lost data through computer hacking. Hill said once a hacker has access to a studentâ€™s email account, they can sell information to scammers, who then sell to advertisers. Once they have a password they will try it on every account linked to the student, includ-â€? ing a bank account, Hill said. â€œThis is why it is so important to have different pass-â€? words for different accounts,â€? said Blake Rich, an IT systems administrator. â€œStudents are constantly under attack. Hackers are looking for quan-â€? tity.â€? The black market for email addresses is very strong. Hackers are making thousands of dollars off of students every day, according to Rich.

Bike-â€?related accidents on the rise BY JERA WOOD AND LIS STEWART staff writers
A hit and run involving a bicycle and blind student drew attention to a need to follow traffic guidelines when crossing campus. Kasondra Payne said she was on her way to the Disabilities Resource Center when she was struck on her left side by the handlebars and front tire of bike ridden by an unidentified cyclist coming from the parking lot by the TSC Oct. 9. â€œThe guy should have seen my white cane,â€? Payne said. Payne is a Disabilities Resource student who is blind and has cerebral palsy. Sergeant Travis Dunn of the USU Police Department said Payne was walking down the pedestrian ramp by the TSC when she got hit. The area was a no-â€?bike zone. â€œA bicycle came up behind going fairly quickly and I heard a thump,â€? said Nancy Roberts, the coordina-â€? tor of the Assistive Technology Learning Center in the Disabilities Resource Center. Roberts was with Payne when she was hit. â€œI asked Kasondra, â€˜Did he hit you?â€™â€? Roberts said. Roberts said when Payne replied that the bicyclist had hit her, Roberts yelled to the passing bicyclist. â€œThatâ€™s why they donâ€™t want people to ride bikes on

Public lands take precedence in Pizza and Politics
BY SARA MCQUIVEY
Congressman Rob Bishop said Utah is capable of maintaining and control-â€? ling its own public lands and will benefit from doing so at Pizza and Politics, a USU College Republicans-â€?sponsored event, on Thursday night. Bishop said the royalties Utah has earned through its federal public lands has decreased 90 percent in the last three years. If the state, rather than the federal government, were allowed to control its
own public lands, it would be better able to provide funding for other programs such as education. He said there are cer-â€? tain lands which should be protected by the federal government, but not all of them. Bishop said the federal government owns one-â€?third of the land in the United States. He said the amount of federally owned public land in Utah alone equals the size of the state of Florida. Bishop said the western states are also those with the slowest increase in edu-â€? cational funding. He said there is a link

between the amount of land owned by the federal government and the amount of funding available for education. â€œIf you really care about the future, if you want to fund education, what has to happen is that Utah has to be able to con-â€? trol its land,â€? Bishop said. He said Utahâ€™s ability to care for its public lands is not a concern. â€œWhy is someone who lives in Utah instinctively inferior to somebody who works in the Department of Interior in Washington?â€? Bishop said. â€œWhy is that we always say that only Washington cares about the grand purpose? Utahns are just capable as anyone in Washington for controlling their own lands and making those decisions, and I refuse to accept the fact that Utah cannot manage these lands because weâ€™re basically country bumpkins and stupid. Thatâ€™s what Washington tells us, and I donâ€™t buy it.â€? Bishop said if a law doesnâ€™t work for every state, those states are free to find solutions for themselves that do work. He said the national government is only good for laws that all the states must obey uni-â€? formly. â€œI definitely thought Bishop had a bunch of good points on how we could run ourselves,â€? said Brian Dean, a student who attended the event. â€œWe donâ€™t need Washington as much as a lot of people are saying we do.â€? Hannah Fjelgsted, an attendee to the event, asked Bishop if he was in favor of repealing the 17th Amendment. This amendment changed the appointment of senators to be by direct election rather than by a state legislation. Bishop said it was not just the 17th Amendment causing these problems. â€œThis is what I want to warn you about: If you think repealing the 17th Amendment is the end-â€?all and be-â€?all and would change the situation, youâ€™re sorely mistaken.â€? Bishop said.
Bishop said the 17th Amendment was created because the previous system by which the states elected senators had failed, and it was the states themselves who had wanted the change. He said sim-â€? ply repealing the 17th amendment wonâ€™t solve the issue â€” other changes must be made to give the states a greater say. â€œBishop made me more open to the possibility that we might need to do more than repeal the 17th Amendment,â€? Fjelgsted said. â€œI agree with his overall point about the inefficiency of federal land. I totally agree with all that heâ€™s been doing to try to bring the land back to the states.â€? Bishop also spoke about civility in Congress. He said the perception that Democrats and Republicans are hostile to each other is highly exaggerated. â€œThe very first Congress, you have congressman Lyon of Vermont who spat in the face of congressman Griswold of Connecticut because he didnâ€™t like him,â€? he said. â€œGriswold then calmly wiped it off and two days later came on the House floor with a cane and started beating the crap out of Congressman Lyon. The idea that today is less civil than it has ever been or there is no comity that takes place is actually fallacious. Itâ€™s not any worse than it has ever been.â€? Bishop described two letters he received from voters: one telling him to compromise with the Democrats and the other telling him to act like a Republican and not compromise. â€œSomewhere between those two extremes is where reality lies, and often-â€? times people have this simplistic idea that you either do it or you canâ€™t do it,â€? Bishop said. â€œThe reality is somewhere between those two concepts.â€? â€“ firstname.lastname@example.org
EMAIL: Students may lose information through fraudulent messages From page 1 â€œAll emails go through a filter,â€? said Bob Bayn, a security analyst for the IT depart-â€? ment. â€œWhen the system was first set up, the filter that Gmail provided for all aggiemail accounts was enough.â€? This year, USU IT decided to add an addi-â€? tional filter to the system. This system uses a method called reputation filtering. Bayne said emails receive a reputation grade based on their content, and those with a poor repu-â€? tation are blocked. Last month, 35 million messages were sent to Aggiemail users. Bayn said only five mil-â€? lion were delivered, however. â€œWe do a lot of filtering for the university and its email users,â€? Bayn said. â€œOur spam filtering system gets rid of the junk mail and lets the good mail through. With all the bad mail we receive, we do the best we can to block out the junk without blocking the good mail.â€? Hill said based on the mail senderâ€™s repu-â€? tation, a message can be dropped before it is even analyzed by the university. Hill said during a single day in October, 82 percent of emails received were not delivered because
they had viruses attached to them. Despite the attempts to protect USU stu-â€? dents, Hill said many students have and will be attacked by hackers. If a hacker can inter-â€? cept one email address of a student attend-â€? ing a university, the likeliness of being able to track others is very great, he said. â€œUniversities are good targets because they have fat internet pipes,â€? said Hill, â€œIf they can hack us, then money is all it is to them.â€? â€œYears ago, the going rate for one account was $0.25,â€? said Rich. â€œMy job and my teamâ€™s job is to monitor the system for unusual activity and put a stop to it. As faculty mem-â€? bers, our data is there as well so we try not to let this type of fraud go on.â€? Students need to be internet skeptics, Rich said. He said if something looks suspicious, do not click on it. â€œScammers are trying to hack into accounts daily,â€? Rich said. â€œIt is our job to identify these scammers and stop them before they can access student information.â€? â€“ email@example.com

HIT: Bicycle clips student From page 1 â€œIt was not a life threatening accident, but Iâ€™m sick of stuff like this happening,â€? Payne said. â€œI wouldnâ€™t want this to hap-â€? pen to someone coming down with a wheelchair.â€? Aggie Blue Bikes director Stephanie Tomlin said the main thing cyclists need to do is pay attention to their surroundings. A cyclist does not need to always get off and walk their bike when there is high traffic in the morning, but they should pay attention to the signs on the sidewalks. She said it is best to keep out of the way of pedestrians. â€œIf you need to, get off and walk in order to keep everyone safe,â€? Tomlin said. Tomlin said it is unfortunate when an accident involving a bicycle makes the news because from her experience, things are going well on campus. â€œThe big gripe cyclists have is they want respect on the road, but that goes down to giving respect to pedestrians,â€? Tomlin said. â€œStudents need to be aware that not everyone is as able bod-â€? ied as they are, and to be courteous and watch out for their fel-â€? low students,â€? Roberts said. Payne said there is an easy solution to the problem. â€œPay attention to people around you,â€? Payne said. â€œPay atten-â€? tion to the signs on the ramp that say to walk your wheels. Use common sense. I realize getting to class quickly is a good idea, but not at the expense of causing an accident.â€? Dunn said the campus has a lot of pedestrian traffic prob-â€? lems, and more accidents involving bicycles are being reported to the police department. He said crosswalks continue to be areas of high congestion. â€œPeople get impatient and get caught in traffic,â€? Dunn said. Dunn said if a person on a bicycle does hit a pedestrian, they need to stop and help them. He said in all accidents involving bicycles and pedestrians last year, the cyclist stopped to help.

College of the Arts clears shop by selling costumes BY ASHLYN TUCKER staff writer
The Caine College of the Arts costume shop and the Theater Student Association co-â€?spon-â€? sored a costume sale Saturday in the Fine Arts Building. The sale featured costume pieces such as a `50s poodle skirt, old-â€?fashioned hats and a snow-â€?queen style hooped dress. Most of the costumes were priced at less than ten dollars. Luella Powell, manager of the costume shop, said the purpose of the sale was to clear out arti-â€? cles that would probably never be used in another production and to make room for new pieces to be made or purchased in the future. â€œWe went through them all one by one,â€? she said. Powell said the number of new costumes made or purchased each year depends on the pro-â€? duction. â€œThis year for â€˜Legally Blondeâ€™ itâ€™s a 2012 time period, so every-â€? thing has been bought,â€? she said. â€œWe are only building about eight items for that show.â€? The costume shop tries to pull from their existing stock for the productions as much as possible. â€œWe have a beautiful vintage stock that people have donated,â€? Powell said. Powell said sales like the one on Saturday are held every once in awhile when it gets to the point where there are too many costume pieces for the storage space available. They are not held
every year, but there have been several in the past. The profits from the sale will be split between the costume shop and the Theater Student Association. Powell said the costume shop is saving up to purchase a new sewing machine and intends to put their portion towards one. Taylor Cummins, a sophomore majoring in theater performance and a member of the Theater Student Association, said the groupâ€™s portion of the profits will be put toward promoting their club around campus. â€œWe want to get our name out there and have more parties to get students from all of the col-â€? leges involved,â€? she said. Cummins said the majority of the students putting on this yearâ€™s annual Halloween show are not theater majors or even art majors at all. â€œA lot of them are students that did plays in high school but now they canâ€™t do it in college,â€? she said. â€œThe TSA gives them the chance.â€? The Theater Student Association gives students a chance to bring original works alive on stage. The TSA puts on several productions written by students every year. Cummins said the annual Halloween show is usually an original script. â€œA student can put on a pro-â€? duction anytime they want to,â€? Cummins said. â€œThey just go to the TSA with their script and say â€˜Hey, weâ€™d love to do this.â€™â€? Cummins said the show

Open Access Week, Oct. 22-â€?29, is a global event and University Libraries at Utah State University will participate. Several presenta-â€? tions have been planned during the week at USU. The weekâ€™s theme is â€œSet the Default to Open Access.â€? According to the Open Access organization, the annual observance of the week is in its sixth year and the intent is to promote Open Access as â€œa new norm in scholarship and research.â€? University Libraries plans three spotlight activities for the week. While all sessions are intended for the campus community, the pre-â€? sentations are free and open to the public. The first presentation is Monday, Oct. 22, and is an introduction to the week and the concept of open access. â€œOpen Access 101: What is Open Access and How is it Changing Scholarship?â€? is presented from 4-â€?5 p.m. at Merrill-â€?Cazier Library, Room 154. â€œThe Social Impact of Research: New Modes of Scholarship, New Ways of Publishing,â€? is presented Tuesday, Oct. 23, Merrill-â€?Cazier Library, Room 154, from 4-â€?6 p.m. Two guests are featured, Johan Bollen, associate professor at the Indiana University School of Informatics and Computing, and Roger Schonfeld, director of research at Ithaka S+R.

From page 1 scholarships available to many students year after year, have the most potential for shaping the lives of students. â€œIt is the access that some students now have to come to this university that they wouldnâ€™t otherwise be able to have,â€? she said. â€œA lot of them come, but then they have to drop out and work and then save money. With these retention scholarships, they can stay in school, graduate sooner and get on with their lives.â€? University advisers encourage students to express their gratitude by writing a let-â€? ter to the people who sponsored them and their education.

Allies support sexual identity rights
BY LIZ GABBITAS
Last Friday, the LGBTQA Program within the USU Access and Diversity Center hosted a training seminar for those interested in becoming allies on campus. This program gives students, faculty and staff a way to show their sup-â€? port for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgen-â€? der and queer students. Millie Struve, a senior majoring in the-â€? atre education, attended this seminar. â€œI wanted to become an ally for two reasons,â€? Struve said. â€œFirst of all, as a teacher right now and as a future educa-â€? tor, I want to be open and receptive to my colleagues or students so that if they want to come talk to me, Iâ€™ll know what Iâ€™m talking about and Iâ€™ll be able to com-â€? municate with them about sensitive top-â€? ics.â€? â€œBut secondly, I wanted to become an ally as a friend,â€? Struve said. â€œI have friends in the LGBTQ community, and I think this is an important way to show support for them and to indicate to them that I am someone they can talk to.â€? One of the basic goals of the allies on Campus program is to create a network of faculty, staff and students who are committed to providing a â€œsafe zoneâ€? for anyone dealing with sexual or gender orientation issues. According to the LGBTQA programâ€™s portion of the Access and Diversity
Center website, â€œAllies on Campus strive to reduce homophobia and heterosexism through education, advocacy, aware-â€? ness, and by creating a visible network of allies. The program strives to develop a welcoming and supportive campus environment for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer students, faculty, and staff.â€? Many faculty and staff around campus display the orange ally stickers on their office doors. These stickers indicate they have received a certain amount of train-â€? ing on LGBTQA related issues and they are comfortable with students approach-â€? ing them to talk about this subject. USUâ€™s ally program is based on similar programs at other universities around the nation. Since its beginnings in 2004, USUâ€™s Allies on Campus program has garnered support from every college. â€œI would absolutely advise other stu-â€? dents, and particularly other future edu-â€? cators, to attend an ally training seminar or maybe even to become an ally them-â€? selves,â€? Struve said. â€œIt gave me a lot of great resources and tools I know I can use in the future. As educators, we want to communicate or connect with all our students. Even for right now, when your friends know youâ€™ve gone through the ally training, it shows them youâ€™re open and supportive and you wonâ€™t ostracize them, and thatâ€™s important for anyone.â€? â€œTo me, being an ally means Iâ€™m com-â€? fortable discussing LGBTQ issues, Iâ€™m

committed to respecting all people and creating a safe environment for them, I will educate myself more on these issues in the future, and I support and appreci-â€? ate the LGBTQ community,â€? Struve said. To become an ally, interested students, faculty or staff attend a three-â€?hour train-â€? ing session and then have the opportu-â€? nity to sign a contract. This contract is the final step in becoming an ally. It is the individualâ€™s chance to declare their personal support for members of the LGBTQA community. However, there is no pressure to sign the contract after attending the seminar
if an individual does not wish to do so. The seminars are open to anyone who wants to learn more about issues fac-â€? ing the LGBTQA community and all interested parties are welcome to attend. Seminars include a panel discussion, resources and referrals and information about the LGBTQA community. â€œSome of the statistics they pre-â€? sented surprised me,â€? Struve said. â€œFor instance, I learned that the average high school student hears slurs about sexual-â€? ity 26 times a day. I had no idea it was so bad, but now Iâ€™m excited to be part of the ally network so I can fight against those numbers.â€? The next training seminar is Friday, Nov. 9 from 1-â€?4 p.m. Registration can be completed online through the Access and Diversity Centerâ€™s website or in per-â€? son at the LGBTQA Center in TSC 314. â€œAs a university, we should support and embrace all kinds of diversity,â€? Struve said. â€œWe all need to learn to be supportive, to communicate and to be aware of the things some of us face. Listening to different perspectives will enrich our lives and make this campus a better place. After all, weâ€™re all in this together.â€? â€“ firstname.lastname@example.org
Getting your hands dirty at work BY KYLE HEYWOOD staff writer Finances can be tough on a college stu-â€? dent. When it comes to making money, some will accept doing the less-â€?sought-â€?after jobs. Whether itâ€™s cleaning up puke or having your nose full of dust, some Utah State students work for every penny they make. Mason Cardon, a junior majoring in Spanish, works at the University Research Greenhouses. Cardon works for the North American Proficiency Testing program, which assists soils and plants labs with their efficiency by sending samples between the labs. â€œBasically what I do is dry, grind, sieve and package soil for sampling,â€? Cardon said. â€œI also grind plant samples for testing.â€? Cardon goes out into the fields and harvests wheat, tomato leaves and other grasses. These samples are then dried for a week or two and ground by a machine into a fine powder. â€œI have to wear a paper face mask like a doc-â€? tor when grinding plants or soils so that I donâ€™t breathe in the dust,â€? Cardon said. â€œItâ€™s really dirty.â€? Overalls are provided, but Cardon said he still wears older clothes to work every day. Cardon found out about the job from his father, who is a professor of soil science at Utah State. When students want to go enjoy the great outdoors, they can rent equipment from the Outdoor Recreation Program. As the equip-â€? ment gets used, it gets dirty, and that means somebody has to clean it up.
â€œMost of our jobs entail just getting dirt or mud off the equipment after it has been rented out,â€? said Paul Reinhardt, a recent USU gradu-â€? ate . â€œProbably the worst job is cleaning out the â€˜groovers.â€™â€? According to Reinhardt, â€œgrooversâ€? are boxes used as restrooms on camping or rafting trips. They are called groovers because when they are sat on, the edges of the box give grooves in the users backside. â€œWhen cleaning out the groovers, we hook up a hose on one side of it and then tip it over and let the hose wash off the sides of the box,â€? Reinhardt said. â€œThere are no guarantees you will come out clean. And the stench is pretty bad.â€? The restrooms arenâ€™t the only equipment that comes back smelling badly. â€œOnce I was put in charge of cleaning out some tents,â€? said Kailey Burch, a junior going into exercise science. â€œWhile cleaning them out, I came across one someone had thrown up in. Not only did they throw up in it, they didnâ€™t clean it up and instead rolled it up and brought it back to us. Trust me, three day old vomit is not pleasant.â€? The real dirt of the ORC jobs can come from the water activity equipment. â€œWe get pretty muddy and dirty while clean-â€? ing off the canoes and rafts,â€? said Dominick Barratt, a junior going into natural resources. â€œWhen people get done with the rafts, they roll the wet raft up in the dirt.â€?

Conniving characters carry long plot April Ashland â€œA Game of Thronesâ€? Grade: B
Review I will be the first to admit Iâ€™m a book snob. If a book doesnâ€™t pull me into the story within the first page and a half or so, then I generally wonâ€™t read it. So it goes without saying that I love books that begin with a pick-up line. Iâ€™m talking classic beginnings, like â€œIt is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a large fortune must be in want of a wife.â€? It just doesnâ€™t get better than that. For all of you who donâ€™t know, thatâ€™s from Pride and Prejudice. I am such a fan of first lines that when I picked up George R.R. Martinâ€™s â€œA Game of Thrones,â€? the first book in the Song of Ice and Fire series, I was not sure if Iâ€™d like it. The prologue begins, â€œâ€™We should start back,â€™ Gared urged as the woods began to grow dark around them. â€˜The wildlings are dead.â€™â€? Fairly lackluster. However, the first few pages fill out the boring beginning with the promise of a tale of harsh times, cold times. I was very lucky to stumble upon the series. I would have picked it up eventually, but I was sitting in a class this past spring semester when a young man in my class and I somehow began talking about fantasy books. He told me about the series and, after discussing books, and then a couple weeks later after he decided he didnâ€™t want to read the books, he gave
me the first four. A Game of Thrones is written from a variety of peopleâ€™s points of view and can, at times, be difficult to follow because of that. The book begins in a land of summers which last decades, and winters that last even longer. The book series has become a hit on HBO, and seems â€” from the two episodes Iâ€™ve watched â€” to follow along. However, the book begins slowly. Because the story is told from different points of view, the character development sometimes seems sporadic. It took me about a month to get page 500. In a normal book, it would take me three days or so to get that far. The characters are rather complex, and can be divided into a couple groups â€“ good guys, bad guys and people somewhere in the gray area. The story is centered around the Starks, a family who have moved from having control of the north to being in critical danger in the south. Ned is the patriarch and helped the current king overthrow the former monarchy. He is asked to be the righthand of the King, and to keep everyone honest. This comes right at the time when his wife, Catelyn, is written by her sister who tells her the former right-hand of the King was murdered by the Queen. Another family in the story are the Lannisters, who are the most powerful family in the realm, even though the King is from another family. Cersei Lannister is the queen, who is sleeping with her handsome brother, Jamie. Tyrion is the dwarf brother who is a Lannister, although his whole family pretty much hates him for being â€œdeformed.â€? The Baratheons include the King, who has grown
DIRTY: Employees shower when they return home
From page 4 â€œThe lifejackets can get smelling pretty funky if we donâ€™t clean them after each trip,â€? Reinhardt said. â€œWe donâ€™t want to deal with mold issues.â€? Food is distributed on the trips the ORC helps with, but hav-â€? ing to clean up after a meal can lead to some interesting smells, according to Barratt. â€œDoing the dishes on one of the trips can get pretty nasty,â€? Barratt said. â€œUsually the grossest things associated with this job happen on the trips, whether itâ€™s cleaning up food or the groovers. I donâ€™t know which is worse.â€? These students sometimes bring the dirty work home with them. â€œWhen I get home, I just jump right in the shower,â€? Cardon said. â€œI am usually caked in dirt. When I blow my nose, dust comes out. My hands get the dirtiest, especially under my nails. I feel dirty all the time.
fat and hardly moveable since he became king, after drinking and sleeping around. His brothers are Stannis and Renly. Then there are the last two descendants of the former monarchy â€” the Targaryen house. This story, like all truly incredible fantasy books, combines a twining and complicated plot with strong character development and flips and turns. For example, Tyrion Lannister is my favorite character in the series. He is a Lannister, so youâ€™re supposed to hate him because his sister is conniving and cruel and her brother is a bloodthirsty jerk. Tyrion, while technically a bad guy, won me over with his sarcasm and his attempts to be a good man. Ned Starkâ€™s oldest daughter, Sansa, annoyed me so much. She seems so hoity-toity. She is a tattletale, concerned only with her appearance and finding a husband. Oh, the many parallels that can be drawn to the Sansas in my own life. Itâ€™s little things like the writing of his characters that made me fall in love with this book. The pace it moved for the first 500 pages or so was killer, and I had to force myself to read. But once the character development really worked itself out, I was enthralled. I read the last 300 pages in two days. Seriously. The other amazing part of this book is the way Martin makes his story come alive and infect his reader. The story truly comes alive â€” and came into my dreams. I read the second book in two and a half weeks, and it was 900 plus pages. Martin has me enthralled in his book series, and while I made it through about two and a half books, I can no lon-
ger allow myself to read because I know with such writing as his, I will forget my homework and jobs and not put the books down. So needless to say, I canâ€™t wait until Christmas break when Iâ€™ve graduated and can read each night until well into the morning. Martin has published five books in the series and is working on the 6th. I canâ€™t wait. Martin is a writer who is quickly working his way up to my elite list of favorite authors â€” of which in the past 17 years of my reading life, has had a total of three writers on it. Warning: This book, like most adult fantasy books, contains sex and some other adult themes.

Mac vs. PC: Debating technology
BY CALE PATTERSON staff writer
In an age of technology, surviving college without a computer could be next to impossible, but the question many students face is which comput-â€? er platform to buy. PCs are still preva-â€? lent nationwide, but the Apple insignia can be seen from the backs of studentsâ€™ lap-â€? tops as they take notes, follow PowerPoints or Facebook during class. According to an article from CNN Tech, PCs outsold Macs in 2011 at a ratio of about 20 to 1. The article also said the gap between the two has tightened considerably since the so-â€?called war of Mac vs. PC first began. Though PC outsells Mac, the ratio is flipped on USUâ€™s campus, accord-â€? ing to the Campus Store. â€œI donâ€™t have official statistics or anything, but Iâ€™d say we sell 10 Macs for every 1 PC,â€? said Aaron Chadwick, tech floor manager at the Campus Store. Kai Anderson, a junior majoring in exercise sci-â€? ence and a sales associate at the Campus Store, said his Mac to PC computer sales ratio is even higher. â€œIâ€™ve sold 25 Macs to 1

lems and complaints with Macs. â€œIn 2011 we sold proba-â€? bly 300 Macs and 50 PCs, and an equal number of people came back with problems or complaints,â€? he said. â€œIâ€™m a Mac guy,â€? said Dallin Osmun, a junior majoring in computer science. â€œI feel like theyâ€™re a more stable system. They just work where PCs donâ€™t.â€? Osmun, who started computer programming at age 7 and built his first computer from scratch at age 8, said for a long time he was a big PC user. His uncle helped him change his preference, and for the last six years Osmun has been using Apple computers. He said he is known as the tech guy where he lives and said people from his apart-â€? ment complex and the one next to it consistently come to him for help with their computer problems. â€œWith PCs, I found that I spent most of my time debugging,â€? he said. â€œMy time can be used more productively on a Mac. Every time I fix a PC, the only advice I ever give is to go get a Mac.â€? Osmun said the soft-â€? ware on Macs is designed to be safer and is based on a proven technique, whereas Windows software was not. â€œWindows tried their own thing,â€? he said. â€œTheyâ€™re trying hard. It just didnâ€™t work.â€? Osmun said the sta-â€? bility Apple computers provide fuels his prefer-â€? ence for the brand. He said although Apple is somewhat proprietary, he has no issues with it, and while Macs are suscep-â€? tible to viruses, they are much less so than PCs. â€œWith Apple they are â€˜our way or no way,â€™ but usually their way is the

better way,â€? he said. â€œMac runs Windows bet-â€? ter than Windows runs Windows. Itâ€™s sad but true.â€? Stephen Cambria, a senior majoring in mar-â€? keting, has a background in computer program-â€? ming as well, having studied the subject for three years in high school and another three in col-â€? lege. He has also been building computers since roughly the age of fifteen. â€œIf I had to strictly choose, Iâ€™d probably choose PC over Mac,â€? he said. Cambria said the fac-â€? tors influencing his pref-â€? erence are more economic pricing of PCs, as well as their wide scale usage. â€œI have nothing against Mac, but it makes more economic sense and more societal sense to just stick with PC,â€? he said. Cambria compared the necessity of a familiarity with the Windows operat-â€? ing system to the neces-â€? sity of learning English when immigrating to the United States. â€œLearning Spanish would be helpful, but learning English would be more universal,â€? he said. â€œYouâ€™d be better off learning English than Spanish. It is the same with Macâ€™s and PCâ€™s â€” it wouldnâ€™t hurt to learn both, but if you had to pick one, PC is a better way to go.â€?
Cambria said he feels there is less free reign for customization in regards to Mac software and hardware. â€œWhat you get is what you get,â€? he said. â€œThey donâ€™t give you a lot of options as far as custom-â€? ization. How do you cus-â€? tomize an iPhone? With a new case. However you want. How do you customize an Android phone? However you want. Itâ€™s not Android versus Iphone, but itâ€™s very much that way and essentially what youâ€™re getting at too when it comes to PC vs. Mac.â€? Some are apathetic when it comes to terms of hardware, software, customization and sys-â€? tem stability, but in the debate between Mac and PC, some are so passion-â€? ate about their prefer-â€? ence, it borders on reli-â€? gion. According to a BBC documentary series involving neurological research, some Mac users experience a reaction similar to what is experi-â€? enced through religion. The neuroscientists ran an MRI on a group of Apple fans while show-â€? ing them images of Apple products. They discov-â€? ered the parts of their brains that lit up were the very same parts that light up in the brains of religious people while viewing images of deity. The choice for Aggies considering a computer purchase can be diffi-â€? cult. For buyers seeking advice, individuals favor-â€? ing either of the systems can be found around campus. â€“ email@example.com. edu

San Antonio beats Utah State BY CURTIS LUNDSTROM sports senior writer
Looking to stay atop the confer-â€? ence standings, the Utah State womenâ€™s volleyball team saw its 6-â€?game conference winning streak snapped by the red-â€?hot Roadrunners of the University of Texas-â€?San Antonio in straight sets Monday. â€œWe were just ill prepared and thatâ€™s my fault,â€? said USU head coach Grayson DuBose. â€œI didnâ€™t have us ready to play at our best tonight for some reason.

Both setters were involved early as USUâ€™s Paige Neves and UTSAâ€™s Brandy Huskey traded dumps at the net, but it was the Roadrunners finishing with a .368 hitting per-â€? centage in the first set. The Aggies were plagued by miscommunication and errors throughout, committing four attack errors and two service errors, while the Roadrunners capitalized on the USU mistakes to put away several long rallies and seize momentum. Aggies climbed within one at 19-â€?18 behind five kills from senior outside hitter Shay Sorensen, but the Aggies fell 25-â€?20 in the first. â€œThat was a bummer,â€? Sorensen said. â€œThey sided out really well and we didnâ€™t. They put some runs together and we couldnâ€™t answer that. It was kind of a weird feeling. That shouldnâ€™t happen ever. Weâ€™ve played together for a long time. We just seemed frantic out there.â€? See VOLLEYBALL, Page 9

Utah State finished their regular-â€?sea-â€? son road schedule Saturday in Moscow, Idaho, against the Idaho Vandals. With the 3-â€?1 victory, the Aggies extended their unbeaten streak to 7 games and remain undefeated in conference play. â€œWe played solid,â€? said Utah State head coach Heather Cairns. â€œIt wasnâ€™t the prettiest soccer, but it was competi-â€? tive and we gutted out the win. Iâ€™m very happy with how we handled this game.â€? Utah State scored first with a Jade Tarver goal in the 35th minute.

Aggies tame BYU Cougars BY SEAN Oâ€™SULLIVAN staff writer
Utah Stateâ€™s club hockey team won their sixth-â€? straight road game to start the year, shutting out BYU 9-â€?0 in Provo on Saturday night. The Aggies capitalized on a balanced offensive outburst led by forwards Joel Basson and Derek Fontaine, who each had four points on the night. In total, seven Aggies notched goals with Basson and forward Stu Hepburn each tallying two. Aggie forward Cooper Limb opened the scoring on a power play early in the first period with an assist from senior forward Matt Hamilton. Later in the game, Hamilton scored a goal of his own. The Aggies went up 4-â€?0 at the end of the first peri-â€? od and recorded five more goals before the game was over. Freshman forward Andrew Latham scored his first career goal for the Aggies. â€œGary Higgs was behind the net, kind of in a little bit of a scrum and I went to the net,â€? Latham said. â€œHe got the puck and just gave it to me and it was right on my stick, so I just buried it.â€? Sophomore goalie Jordan Nighttraveller earned the shutout in net for the Aggies, stopping 20 BYU shots on the night. â€œI saw the puck very well,â€? Nighttraveller said. â€œIf I didnâ€™t see the puck, I would make a way to.â€? The Aggies also played a very disciplined game, taking only three penalties all night. Penalties have plagued the Aggies during the early part of the season. â€œWe only had three penalties to their five,â€? said Aggie head coach Jon Eccles. â€œOne guy was trying to fight Ty Johns and Ty just stuck his arms out to the side and we didnâ€™t get a penalty â€” they got a pen-â€? alty.â€? Fontaine and defense-â€? men Shaun Gibbons both added one goal each. Utah State gave a few players the night off in order to rest for their home opener this Thursday. The Aggies will play Arizona State University, the only team to beat them in the regular season last year. â€œIt was an opportunity for the guys who donâ€™t get as much ice time to get inserted in,â€? Eccles said. â€œTheyâ€™ll be chomping at the bit when they get in against ASU, so thatâ€™ll be good.â€? The team will be ready to go against Arizona State. â€œThis is a big game for us against ASU,â€? Latham said. The game will be played at the George S. Eccles Ice Center in North Logan at 7 p.m. â€“ sean.osullivan@aggiemail. usu.edu Twitter: @seansy89

It was kind of a weird feeling. That shouldnâ€™t happen ever. Weâ€™ve played together for a long time. We just seemed frantic out there.â€? Boos filled the Spectrum during the second set after the Roadrunners appeared to hit a ball into the net and the antenna. Officials awarded Utah State a point, but after protest from the UTSA bench, officials gathered and overturned the call, giv-â€? ing the Roadrunners a 24-â€?20 lead in the second set, which ended a point later, 25-â€?20. The Aggies hit .116 during the second set and UTSA came up with 22 digs, turning them into 17 kills. McKenzie Adams recorded 12 kills through the first two sets, hitting .417 and committing just one error to lead the Roadrunners. â€œWeâ€™re a nice block-â€?

FOOTBALL: Defense shines in SJSU victory From page 8 half. â€œTremendous victory against a good football team,â€? said head coach Gary Andersen. â€œIâ€™ve got a ton of respect, like Iâ€™ve said all along, for their coaching staff, their play-â€? ers.

It was a game of runs from both teams as USU scored on its first four possessions en route to a 28-â€?3 lead. The defense zeroed in on SJSU quar-â€? terback David Fales and the run game, allowing just four net yards on the ground on 41 attempts. It also led to the over-â€? abundance of sacks, which Andersen said was a cred-â€? it to defensive coordina-â€? tor Dave Aranda and the defensive coaching staff. â€œThey were the ones that came up with the game plan,â€?

To USUâ€™s many donors: Thank you Most of us attend college without fully understanding who pays for our educations. Itâ€™s a trickier question than it appears â€” tuition and fees are what we see directly, but they pay for less than a fifth of our education costs. but behind the scenes, government subsidies, grants and private donations pay for a lot of what we see at USU. On Friday, the university held a celebration markAn Editorial Opinion ing the end of its first comprehensive fundraising campaign. It may not sound important, it may be easy to skip in a calendar of events, but the university raised more than half a billion dollars. The money will pay for new scholarships, new buildings and new programs at our university. Weâ€™re lucky to have Stan Albrecht, a president who understands the importance of private donors in a rough economy. Weâ€™re lucky he had the foresight to set high goals and hire the people who could make them happen. Most of all, weâ€™re lucky there are tens of thousands of people willing to donate so we can have better lives. We complain about tuition sometimes, but compared to what some students pay at other universities, weâ€™re stealing an education at USU. To all the people who donate to our university â€” thank you.

Hitting the cultural barrier Justin Hinh Scenes from the Front Line
At USU, I noticed a common trait among international students. Often they would hang out with just themselves and not much with the general student body. I was always bummed by this because international students bring a wealth of knowledge about other
cultures and ideas. But I was passive and didnâ€™t go out of my way to talk to these students. Instead I said to myself, â€œItâ€™s up to them to interact and adopt to our culture, not me.â€? Before I had arrived in Germany, I vastly underestimated the power of the language barrier. Even though many Germans know English, itâ€™s incredibly frustrating to not be able to even communicate the most basic ideas. When a group of German neighbors invited me along to a bar, I was effectively forced to remain silent as everyone around me was speaking only in German.
ForumLetters Emery column lacking basis
To the editor:
Ms. Emery has made serious accusations in her recent opinion piece, and we need to recognize them as such. In her piece, she ignores the statements of church leaders regarding the reasons for the â€œmissionary age change.â€? Furthermore, by asserting her own theory in place of those reasons, she is accusing the leadership of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints of deliberately misleading their membership. Although Ms. Emery has some cherry-picked â€œfactsâ€? to create her story, she has no evidence to back up the malicious intent. She also has made
many broad assumptions about missionary work, of which she appears to have little or no personal knowledge. Her background (which she divulges) suggests that, instead of being a concerned informant to the public, she may have an ax to grind against the church and is misusing her position to accomplish that. I donâ€™t think the Statesmanâ€™s staff comprehends the gravity of printing Ms. Emeryâ€™s words on this matter. Regardless of the fact that this was an opinion piece, Ms. Emery â€” in my view â€” is technically part of the staff, and her words have some reflection on The Statesman and USU in general. I do not begrudge Ms. Emeryâ€™s constitutional right to speak out about her beliefs on such
I now find myself becoming friends exclusively with international students. Itâ€™s weird to say, but I can now see why the international students back home acted the way they did. It sucks not being able to communicate. During my two weeks here, Iâ€™ve learned that we Americans share some characteristics that, to be honest, just piss Germans off. My friends call it â€œthe superficial bullshit that you Americans spew on a daily basis.â€? To be more specific, itâ€™s how us Americans tend to be polite. Weâ€™re fine
0IXXIVWXS XLIIHMXSVÂˆ %TYFPMGJSVYQ matters. However, it is unprofessional to publish such serious accusations against any person or organization by a member of your staff unless you have actual proof to back it up. Should Ms. Emeryâ€™s view be factual, then there is a serious investigation to be performed by a credible, ethical journalist. Otherwise, her opinion piece is simply an effort by The Statesman and Ms. Emery to â€œstir the potâ€? and thereby increase the number of readers. If this is true, then The Statesman is debasing itself to the level of The National Enquirer, and should not sully the name of Utah State University which it bears. Christopher Atkinson
Tennis coach was a dedicated man To the editor: I was shocked and saddened to see that longtime tennis coach Christian Wright had been terminated as the USU tennis coach. My children have worked with numerous coaches over the years, including Coach Wright during his Nike Tennis Camp. I personally have worked with and observed teaching professionals over the past 30 years, having played tennis in high school and briefly in college. Of all the coaches I have known, Christian Wright would rank up there at the top of the list in terms of not just his coaching ability, but his qualities as a human being and high moral character. Parents could rest
assured that if they sent their son or daughter to play for Coach Wright that he would mentor these young people to reach their highest potential both on the court and in the classroom. The life skills he taught his players through personal example will benefit them long after they have finished their college careers. The reason given for his termination was an NCAA violation of coaching high school players. I donâ€™t know of a college tennis coach who does not coach high school players. If it is a violation, given the \HDUVRIGHGLFDWHGVHU vice that coach Wright has given, immediate termination seems harsh. It leaves me wondering, who has the ax to grind? Mat Miles

Mitt Romneyâ€™s choice of Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan as his running mate From was a wise one. Romney is running on the basis that he the can jump-start the economy, right cut wasteful spending and begin to tackle the deficit. Ryan makes a very good complement to the ticket on those issues, making him a great addition to Americaâ€™s Comeback Team. Even before much of the buzz about Ryan being on Romneyâ€™s short list for vice president, I recognized him as a Congressman who presented new ideas to tackle the tough fiscal issues of the day: something that most legislators â€” state or federal â€” rarely dare to do. Heâ€™s put together budgets, come up with new ideas on how to handle the going-broke entitlements and made proposals about tax policy: Heâ€™s quite the wonk in those areas. Judging by Americaâ€™s current economic and fiscal situation of record deficits, high unemployment, rising food and gas prices and a credit-rating downgrade, Iâ€™d say itâ€™s about time we get two people on the same ticket who will propose bold, serious ideas on how to confront the economic and fiscal problems we face as a nation. Ryan adds a youthful image to the presidential ticket as well. Younger voters are more likely to relate to him because he doesnâ€™t look or act like a stereotypical politician. Heâ€™s also family man who is devoted to his faith, which may resonate well with religious voters and those that care deeply about the importance of the family. Each of these attributes has helped to shape the public image of

BARRIER: Germans tell the painful truths From page 11 with telling little white lies to avoid hurting otherâ€™s feelings. The Germans here feel thatâ€™s a very superficial way of living life. They demand honesty and expect it from others. You shouldnâ€™t tell any lies to your friends, even if it may hurt their feelings. If they really are your friends, they ought to appreciate the honesty. Germans are like coco-
nuts. They can seem very cold and hard on the outside, and it may seem impossible to open them up. But once you break through, you find that they are very sweet on the inside. Americans on the other hand are like peaches. Outside weâ€™re colorful and inviting and for a while we easily share some of the sweetness with others, but people can get too close and hit the pit of peach, which causes us to imme-
diately throw up walls for protections. Some of you have been asking my thoughts on German beer. All I can say is that Iâ€™m currently conducting in-depth research.

RIGHT: Ryan balances Romney ticket From page 11 the Romney campaign. During last weekâ€™s vice presidential debate, Ryan was clearly acting like the grownup in the room as Vice President Joe Biden smiled, laughed, scoffed and interrupted Ryan numerous times. I admire him for having the patience to let â€œBiden be Bidenâ€? during the debate while still presenting his message in a firm, appealing way. Should
Ryan be elected, we will be privileged as a nation to have a vice president who acts calmly and respectfully in situations that might not always be to his liking. I think what appeals to voters most about Ryan is he is an ordinary American from an ordinary town and an ordinary family who has shown he knows how to roll up his sleeves and do the job he has been elected to do, regardless of the

political consequences. To many people, Mitt Romney is seen as some rich guy who hasnâ€™t really lived an average American life: Ryan balances this perception.

From page 11
House Budget Committee Chairman. While in Washington, I was able to hear Congressman Ryan discuss the budget that brought him to national prominence. He struck me as intelligent and sharp on detail, however his personality is constantly overshadowed by his fiscal proposal which has accurately been described as the most radical piece of legislation introduced in the House of Representatives in a century. The most distinguishing feature is his plan to privatize Medicare, leaving millions of seniors at the mercy of insurance companies and rising costs. Nearly two thirds of Americans oppose the plan, yet it has become a central proposal of the RomneyRyan ticket. The vice-presidential debate on Oct. 11 was filled with fiery exchanges, ultimately showcasing Bidenâ€™s strong command of domestic and foreign policy issues as well as an emotional connection to the middle and working class of America. Ryan didnâ€™t do poorly, but his attempts at playing
catch-up and defend his policies led viewers of the debate to conclude that Biden won by a 20-point margin. Neither of the candidates are perfect: Biden explains his gaffe-prone nature by the fact that he â€œalways says what he means,â€? while Ryan only exaggerated his marathon time by a couple of hours. In any case, these two men play a larger role in the image of their respective campaigns: Ryan, the number-cruncher behind Romneyâ€™s corporate persona, and Biden, the veteran statesman standing by the idealistic President. No one votes for the better vice president, but the Bidenâ€™s debate performance and his experience have shown that he is a strong leader, working alongside President Obama in fighting for opportunity and prosperity for all Americans.
