University. “The carillon is appropriate to our university because of its precise mechanical structure,” Russell said. “This is a great technical University. It makes sense that the tower would have an advanced piece of mechanics and electronics playing.” Until 1989, the carillon was played on a daily basis at 5 p.m.,

for maintaining ground on the sidewalk. Margaret Shucker, a protester who has completed graduate work at N.C. State, was among the eight people arrested. Shucker, who is 57 and receiving money for a disability, can be seen in a YouTube video being taken out of her chair by police officers and then arrested. Protesters running the Occupy Raleigh website showed several pictures of Shucker being arrested as well as the video. The organization additionally
when students from the music department would come to Holladay Hall to play songs on the instrument. Stafford and Gould did not indicate why the daily event ceased. The carillon has been out of working condition since then. After hard work by Gould and several people from the physical plant, the carillon was fixed and Alex Miller, a leader for University Arts programs, became the first to play the car-
illon in more than 20 years. Both Gould and Miller played the instrument soon after it was resurrected, and students near the Bell Tower heard the sound of its bells for the first time since most undergraduates were born. Stafford said plans are in the works for another playing session soon, and the goal is to see students playing the carillon regularly again.
posted pictures of the sidewalk, which they believe to be proof the sidewalk did have a clear path. In Sughrue’s statement two days before the sidewalk protesters were arrested, instructions were basic, allowing protesters to sit on the sidewalk with no mention of chairs, boxes or other items. “I’ve said they could stand or sit, depending on individual preferences,” Sughrue said. “The only requirement is that the sidewalk remains open enough to accommodate pedestrian traffic.” In other parts of the world, violence has escalated at protests as in Oakland last week
where paint and other objects thrown at police by protestors were met with tear gas. In addition, almost 100 protestors were arrested and more than 20 injured in a violent protest in Melbourne, Australia October 22. Occupiers don’t have plans to stop despite nearly 30 arrests and increasing violence at other Occupy movements around the country and world. On Occupy Raleigh’s official website, protesters stated they were still seeking more people to occupy the Capitol sidewalk.

“The event definitely [was] open to the entire campus, and indeed, we welcome anyone who wants to volunteer [in the future]…We recruited SHAC [Sullivan Hall Activities Council] to buy candy, which is distributed to suites in Sullivan who signed up to pass out candy,” Melvin said. Many of the youngsters from the Boys and Girls club didn’t disappoint with their costumes. Ghouls, monsters and princesses were seen at the carnival. “In addition, SHAC hosted a suite decorating contest so that the suites [were] all ready to go for the trick-or-treaters,” Melvin said. Being at a university as large as N.C. State raised questions about the necessary safety precautions for the children. However, the kids at the carnival were all with at least one chaperone or volunteer, which made sure they wouldn’t stray away from the group or the activities. “As far as safety goes,” Melvin said, “the more volunteers the better. Of course, we [had] the chaperones from the B&G club, but making sure we have enough volunteers to the ratio of children is essential.”

able to characterize long term storage of spent fuel. We will conduct short term tests and use the data to predict what will happen in thousand years.” Murty said. Coming up with new materials for canisters in which used fuel is stored and sensors to monitor the fuel will also be a part of their study,” Murty said. According to Murty, this research is necessary because of the huge amount of spent nuclear fuel being generated in the country. “It becomes very important because of the 100 odd nuclear reactors that are operating in the country which are generating nuclear fuel which needs to be stored somewhere till government comes up with a plan and/or a site to store that fuel,” Murty said. “Meanwhile we have to see the transportation part of the dumping process.” Students get a chance to get involved as professors look to get two graduate students and a post-doctoral research associate involved in the research. There will also be research opportunities for motivated undergraduates. Murty said this is a big

opportunity for N.C. State as it is now a part of national nuclear research project and he and Eapen are very excited. He said it helps the University collaborate on theoretical modeling and experimental aspects. Murty will attend a meeting in November in Las Vegas where people from DOE, universities and various other organizations will gather and exchange the prevailing issues in the field. In December the first official meeting of about 15 faculty members will take place to discuss plans on the research project. Eapen said it testifies the strong nuclear engineering program at the University. “We are one of the top ranking programs in the country and high profile projects like these will continue to attract top students to our program,” Eapen said. Walter Ashburn, a sophomore in nuclear engineering, said students will highly benefit from the research. “Not only will Murty and Eapen’s research help the global community, perhaps improving the way we store nuclear fuel, it will also help the universit y. Laboratories and equipment used by researchers here at N.C. State are often made available to students. This provides graduates and undergraduates better tools for furthering their education.” Ashburn said. really worried about direction or how the UAB will move forward. My hope for them is to continue in the positive direction that we started,” Woodward said. “I think adapting to student needs is the direction we needed to go in, and I hope that’s something they continue to do.” Woodward said he plans to continue to collaborate with the Union Activities Board in the future.
