B e g i n n i n g Tu e s d a y , drunken students caught attempting to drive home from a late night on Campus Corner may not be able to start their cars for at least 18 months without proving they are sober. The Er in Swezey Act,

named after a 20-year-old student at Oklahoma State University killed by a drunken driver, puts in place stricter laws for all DUI offenders in Oklahoma. “We want people to know that if they choose to drink too much and get behind the wheel, they will face greater consequences, “ state Sen. Clark Jolley, R-Edmond, said in a statement. “Hopefully that may discourage some people from driving drunk in the first place.” The new laws, written by

An interlock device requires the driver to breathe into it and measures the blood alcohol content before the individual can start the car. The test also requires drivers to randomly breathe into the device throughout the drive, designed to make it harder for drivers to have a sober friend take the test for him or her, according to the device website. Those receiving a second DUI offense with a level of at least 0.08 must use the interlock for four years, and for

Multiple campus projects passed PAIGHTEN HARKINS Staff Reporter

The OU Board of Regents approved multiple multi-million dollar renovation projects for campus at its October meeting Wednesday. Items passed include: • A name for the $75 million, new athletic housing center was agreed upon. The building will officially be called Headington Hall after Tim Headington, OU tennis player and 1972 alumnus. • Upgrades were approved to L. Dale Mitchell Park, the men’s baseball field. The first phase of expansion will feature two new rows of seats behind home plate and a netting backstop. These renovations are part of a $4 million plan to upgrade the ballpark. Later renovations will include updated locker rooms and additional seating. This phase of the project will cost $695,900. • On the agenda was a proposal for a new audio sound system for Paul F. Sharp concert hall. It would cost $307,190 and would be installed by Solotech US Corporation out of Las Vegas, Nevada. • A series of bonds were proposed to the tune of $75 million to continue projects that are currently underway and in need of bonds. The bonds would assist completion of the f o l l ow i ng re n ovat i o n projects: Hester Hall: $6 million Oklahoma Memorial Union: $3 million Cate 1: $2 million Fine Arts Center : $4 million

five years for all additional offenses. And offenders will have to foot the cost for the interlock device themselves. Interlock device companies typically charge an installation fee between $50 and $200 and a monthly rental fee between $50 and $100, according to the Oklahoma Board of Tests for Alcohol and Drug Influence. New law may add costs and inconvenience for offenders,

DUI: Device has national track record of safety Continued from page 1

TODAY AROUND CAMPUS The deadline for student financial aid filing for spring 2012. Students must make sure the file is complete to receive disbursements when classes begin. An art event targeted at young children will take place from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. in the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art’s Dee Dee and Jon R. Stuart Classroom. The event will feature work by artist James Mayhew, who will showcase his children’s book, “Katie and the Sunflowers.� The event is free, and children ages 3 to 5 must be accompanied by an adult. Student Success Series: Leveraging Technology for Academic Success will take place from 4 to 5 p.m. in Wagner Hall, Room 245. Men’s basketball opens the season against Northeastern State at 7 p.m. in Lloyd Noble Center.

Norman Police Capt. Tom Easley said. Though he has not read the new statutes completely, he said he thinks people often have access to multiple cars that do not require the interlock device, which might be a way around the laws. “I think it will work to a certain extent,� Easley said. “To another extent, it’s not so effective. We will have to wait and see.� The new law does require all people using an interlock device have a sticker on their licenses to try to avoid the problem of multiple vehicles, according to a press release. The device is credited with reducing offenses by an average of 67 percent, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention . Arizona has seen greater than average reductions in fatalities from the device. “In Arizona, they’ve cut their fatalities by nearly half,� Nelson said in a press release. “We’ll never know whose life we’ve saved with this law, but it could be any one of us or our own children or grandchildren.� Overall, 15 states now require the device for all firsttime offenders, according to

the Mothers Against Drunk Driving national office. Oklahoma is now the 13th state, including Texas, to require the device for first-time offenders with an alcohol level of 0.15 or more. The new requirements honor Swezey, who was killed in an accident in Oklahoma City on April 4, 2009, according to the act’s website.

Faith not the core of character

D

efying my exOPINION COLUMNIST pectations, Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania actually said something fairly reasonable at the most recent Republican presidential debate. Commenting on the relSteven Zoeller evance of a candidate’s restevenv.zoeller@gmail.com ligious beliefs, he said, “It’s a legitimate thing to look at as to what the tenets and teachings of that faith are with respect to how you live your life and how you would govern this country.” It was a safe answer — one that didn’t shield religious views from criticism, but limited that criticism to how a candidate’s values are informed by his or her religious views. I was impressed. Then, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich had to ruin everything. ”How can you have judgment if you have no faith?” Gingrich asked. “How can I trust you with power if you don’t pray?” This was followed by dispiriting applause. Gingrich is notorious for his inane views on religion in politics — months ago he voiced fear that America might become a “secular atheist country, potentially one dominated by radical Islamists.” I understand this is simply his latest in a

long line of stupid statements, but I think it deserves special comment. Gingrich’s opinion mirrors that of many Americans. It is the opinion that at the center of someone’s character, there’s an empty space that can only be filled by a religious belief. This is simply false. To know people are trustworthy or have good judgment is only to know they’re motivated by a genuine compassion for their fellow man, and this comes with or without religious belief. Gingrich does a disservice to his non-religious, would-be constituency by reducing kindness to religiosity. He disses believers as well. In many cases, a person’s religious beliefs are peripheral to his or her personality, not central. This doesn’t devalue religion; it just means the individual is too complicated to be encompassed in one word. Perhaps one might argue that a person’s religious beliefs should be at the core of his or her being, but I have doubts whether this is even possible. In my personal experience, there are as many forms of Christianity as there are Christians, as many forms of Islam as there are Muslims, etc. Gingrich would do well to remember not all voters belong to the evangelical bloc. If he’s going to insult tens of thousands who don’t believe in God, while claiming believers’ faith is all that keeps them in line, then he’s engaging in a gross oversimplification unbefitting of the office he’s running for.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Game has dangerous implications Re: “10.7M grant given to OU research team for video game,” an article published in Wednesday’s edition. I’m always thrilled to hear when OU is receiving attention and respect, but the concept of the video game itself left me unsettled. Its goal is to “combat the effects of biases on decision making,” positing we are often inclined to rely on our biases to make quick decisions rather than giving a “thorough examination of the evidence.” The content and purposes of the game were not mentioned, outside of the fact that it’s sponsored by the Air Force Research Laboratory and will be used for “intelligence analysts,” but I was still a bit

alarmed at the implications. Of course we are working to find ways to minimize complications caused by human error. It can be expensive and time-consuming for a human to make an error. However, we aren’t just talking about sidestepping human error, but the manipulation of thought. The advent of the machine made physical human labor all but obsolete throughout most of this country. Whether humans have benefited from this transition is irrelevant. This transition was not for our sake but for efficiency. The same is true for our reliance on super computers for solving, say, complex algorithms. As Jacques Ellul

argues in “The Technological Society,” we continue to blindly and blithely weed out the human element from everything we do, and will continue doing so until humans have been fully adapted. We must be cautious, for if humans unpredictably can eventually be “cured” by a video game — just as our inability to craft a perfect chair quickly and without error was “cured” by machine — we’re one step closer to the most efficient system of all: the one run by fully adapted technicians. Apparently, humans could soon be cured of their own thoughts. It is important to step away and ask ourselves what is the end goal. What is our progress

truly? The means is, obviously, efficiency. But are we reaching toward paradise? This is a fallacy, a dream, an unrealized ideal. As people, we should hope the society we create has us as the priority. However, we are continually addressing technical problems with technical solutions; rather than adapting our means of productivity to man, we engineer ways to adapt man to increased and accelerated productivity. If mind-influencing programs become effective and prevalent in the future, the world of technicians looms on the horizon. Jordan Rogers, industrial engineering graduate instructor

Liberalism vulnerable to inconsistency

I

want to talk about liberalism as I see it here at OU, to the best of my ability, from a Christian perspective. This raises a few problems, though. First, I am not exactly an authority on the Christian worldview, so I hope what I say is faithful to the perspective to which I appeal. Second, there is not one homogenous “liberalism” upon which to comment. People are liberal in different spheres — economically, socially, morally and theologically — and within these few categories alone exists a plethora of divergent views. That being said, I think there is a sense in which these plates converge in the mind of your average, left-leaning American student. Third, when this article moves towards critiquing liberalism, I do not want to be mistaken for saying that people should flee liberal land to enter conservative country, as though Republicanism is the Soter for Democrats. That would be foolish. There are other powers at work here, and hard-line conservativism has its own appalling infections. In a positive sense, liberalism means to have freedom about something. Negatively, it means to not have bounds. These values are manifested in a number of ways. When it comes to charity, I hope we all aspire to give liberally (that is, freely and not holding back). The spirit of liberalism on campus is very much connected to boundless freedom. Students want to be free to do what is right in their own “Caring They do not want to be shackfor people eyes. led by moral systems or ideological with mental dogmas. The liberal spirit rightly recognizes handicaps, there is danger in dumbly conformor for poor ing to tradition. Even Jesus hated immigrants, when people idolized tradition, such seem to me as in Mark 7:8. A difference between his mindset beautiful and the liberal mindset, though, is that Jesus hated it when people in facets of taught tradition rather than liberalism.” authority God’s commandments. Liberalism, in its drive to propagate personal freedom and tear down traditional walls, often rejects not only dogma but also often the idea of God, universal standards and truth altogether. This ruins some of the most beautiful results of the liberal mindset. For instance, liberalism on our campus and throughout history has effectively tied itself to issues of social justice. There is great concern for many of “the least of these.” From a Christian perspective, this is something I value. Jesus taught an “upside-down” kingdom: “Whoever would be first among you must be slave of all. For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many,” from Mark 10:44-45. And this idea is carried on in the writings of Paul: “The parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable,” from 1 Corinthians 12:22. Valuing the weaker members of society has long been a feature of liberalism. I recently returned from a trip to Colorado where I spent time with a family with two special-needs children. The funding they receive to care for their children is a tremendous blessing and exists to a large degree because Colorado is such a blue state. I remember my heart breaking a couple years ago when the Oklahoma legislature struck down Nick’s Law, a bill that would have provided funding for children with autism. Caring for people with mental handicaps, or for poor immigrants, seem to me beautiful facets of liberalism. But seeking freedom so much as to throw off the yoke of God, universal morals and truth tarnishes this by allowing one of the most condemnable features of liberalism and conservatism alike: inconsistency. Students of the left will raise the banner and pour out their blood for the rights of immigrants, sex-trafficking victims, the racially oppressed and the mentally ill. But when it comes to caring for the epitome of the helpless, for crying out for those who in no way can speak for themselves, liberals balk. I am thinking about concern for the unborn. Pushing to allow the slaughter of 3,000 utterly dependent children every day does not fall in line with the values of the upside-down kingdom. As I write this, my heart breaks again like it did for those autistic children deprived of much-needed aid. Please, consider your world view and do not settle for an inconsistency born of truth decay. Trevor Clark is a professional writing senior.

Latest music service strikes a chord with students Megan Deaton

Life & Arts Reporter

Since its arrival in the United States, Spotify has some music lovers rethinking their music ser vice philosophy. Spotify combines aspects of both Pandora and iTunes, making it more practical for students who do not like advertisements or who do not like paying so much for music. “I’ve definitely used my iTunes and Pandora less since starting to use Spotify,� broadcast and electronic media senior Sarah Fullerton said. “I haven’t cut them out completely, but when I want to listen to a song that I don’t want to buy, Spotify is my best option.� Spotify first launched in Sweden, and has since moved on to six other European countries and attained more than 10 million

“I think its most attractive quality for those of us in America is that it has partnered with Facebook, so now everybody can share the music they’re listening to, as they’re listening to it.� hunter brunwald, mathematics sophomore

registered users, according to the Spotify website. Now, Spotify has landed in the U.S., but it may be hard to tell how well it will spread. “The launch of Spotify in the U.S. has exceeded our expectations in both the response to invitations for the free service as well as subscriptions,� Spotify Chief Content Officer Kenneth Parks said. “We aren’t going to discuss numbers at this stage but we are excited to be here and confident that Americans will love Spotify as much as they already do

in Europe.� The positive reactions of some OU students seem to support this statement. Users especially love the ability to connect their Spotify account with Facebook. “Spotify is very easy to use,� mathematics sophomore Hunter Brunwald said. “I think its most attractive quality for those of us in America is that it has partnered with Facebook, so now everybody can share the music they’re listening to, as they’re listening to it.� The service offers varying

levels of subscriptions to users. The free service is only available on a computer and includes advertisements, but users can pick and choose songs for their own playlists, unlike Pandora. The premium service at $10 a month, higher than the unlimited service at $5 a month that only eliminates ads, both removes the ads and allows users to take their music on the go with a mobile device. “I like that I can pull up almost any song after hearing it on some other Internet radio site and then have the song in my own music library to play whenever I want,� mathematics and letters junior William Lonn said. Users are able to save an unlimited amount of music without taking up any hard drive space and share playlists with other users.

However, Brunwald said there are some drawbacks. “The ads aren’t very long, but if you’re listening to acoustic or reggae, and suddenly and advertisement for the newest version of Justin Bieber sounds off, it can be distracting,� Brunwald said. Paying for the ser vice avoids this problem, but some artists have withheld their licenses for some songs, making them unavailable on Spotify.�

“Double-Wide Dreamâ€? (Almost Country Records) Rating: ÂŤÂŤÂŤÂŤ

While country counterparts Zac Brown Band and Eli Young Band dominate the airwaves, Casey Donahew Band could be the next act to blow up the radio. The title track from the band’s latest album, “Double-Wide Dream,� both pokes fun at and romanticizes the “redneck� lifestyle. Although Donahew’s voice is unrefined and sometimes too twangy for someone who prefers more country-pop, he and his band have the potential to become the next big thing in country. Sydney Allen is a broadcast and electronic media sophomore.

Notre Dame landed at second with six first-place votes, and defending national champion Texas A&M received the last first-place vote at sixth. Tennessee, Connecticut and Stanford round out the top five.

The Oklahoma men’s basketball team tips off exhibition play at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Lloyd Noble Center against Northeastern State. The Sooners are coming off a 14-18 year, but return

The game against Northeastern State will be coach Lon Kruger’s first look at his team against another program since being named men’s basketball

Oklahoma begins regularseason play at 7 p.m. Nov. 11 against Idaho State.
