Ten years running, Austin City Limits raises the bar for music festivals

I

t’s easy to sum up the philosophy behind this year’s Austin City Limits festival in three words: Bigger is better. No expense was spared in honoring the fall fest’s 10th anniversary, which means there were bigger bands, bigger crowds and bigger lines for a bus into Zilker Park. Oh, and get this: it rained.

The first day of the festival showcased everything new under the (sweltering, punishing) sun, beginning with some muchhyped newcomers. Cloudy skies dimmed some of the sunshine radiating from indie-poppers Cults, who opened the show Friday with their sugar-sweet 60s pop sound, but the off-and-on drizzle Alec Goetz provided a more apjunior English major propriate environment for the relatively somber James Blake. Blake, an Englishman and Friday afternoon highlight, brought thundering “post-Dubstep” bass and shuffling percussion in the midafternoon to an audience who seemed to have been expecting something a little less aggressive given his subtle debut album. Friday evening belonged to Conor Oberst’s Bright Eyes and the Jamaican jams of Damien Marley, who performed with recent collaborator/rap legend Nas, and the day’s headliners: superstars Coldplay and Kanye West. Playing the two acts with the broadest appeal of the entire festival against each other seemed to be an odd decision, but audiences couldn’t go wrong with either choice. Coldplay’s set brought new songs and old favorites, while Mr. West’s show was characterized by manic energy, grand theatrics, and the spectacle of seeing the hip-hop hero’s unfiltered ego on display. Saturday brought a real-live rain shower and a line-up that appealed to an older crowd. The day’s menu was dominated by country-rock and soul, with an eardrum-bursting performance by Skrillex thrown in the mix for good measure. The country-fried side of the musical spectrum

A&M community honors Constitution Week Ashley Harriman The Battalion Saturday marked the 224th anniversary of the signing of the U.S. Constitution. Texas A&M joined many other universities and organizations across the United States to honor the Constitution and the freedoms it protects. On Sept. 13, University President Bowen Loftin and Student Body President Jeff Pickering joined representatives from the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) signing a proclamation recognizing Constitution day and the document’s significance in. Pickering said he was proud to sign the proclamation on behalf of the student body. “As somebody who has a Constitution on my desk and I see it every morning, it was really cool to be part of that festivity,” Pickering said. “As students, we need to know the Constitution and what it stands for.” See Constitution on page 7

The Battalion Jacob Brent Hughes, senior wildlife and fisheries science major, died Sunday night in a car crash. At 10:30 p.m., 22-year-old Hughes was driving northbound on I&GN Road in College Station in a 2005 Toyota Tacoma. On Facebook, Hughes classified himself as a “chillin’ professional,” alongside his actual profession — Dixie Chicken cook and bartender. His co-workers at the Chicken, Roy Atkinson and Matt Weaver, said Hughes had a comical side and knew how brighten anyone’s day. “He knew what to say to bring you up when you were down,” Atkinson said. “He was one of those people who knew how to make you laugh instantly.” Weaver, senior sports management major, met Hughes in 2009 when they were cashiers for the Chicken Oil Co. before they moved to the Dixie Chicken. Weaver said Hughes was his best friend because of Hughes’ honest personality. “He wasn’t scared to step up and go against the grain,” Weaver said. “He wasn’t scared to speak the truth about things. He had a heart of gold.” Weaver recalled a time when he was bed-ridden for more than a year. He said Hughes was one of the few friends who would visit him in the hospital.

“My mom lives in Florida and my dad lives overseas,” Weaver said. “ He was one of the few friends to make sure I was OK and Hughes offered to buy me groceries if I needed them.” Atkinson and Weaver reminisced about good times spent with their friend, from the day he rescued four homeless dogs at once to his diverse taste in music, which ranged from country to rap. They toasted to the memory of Hughes because they said that’s what he would have wanted. “That was one of his last requests actually,” Atkinson said. “He always said if he ever passed away he would want all of his friends and family not to mourn, but to celebrate. That’s just the kind of person he was.” According to a police report, Hughes was driving faster than the posted speed limit. He lost control of his vehicle and ran off the roadway to the left, the police report said. After over-correcting, he traveled down an embankment and rolled several times, pinning himself inside the vehicle, according to the Department of Public Safety reports. Hughes was pronounced dead at 12:40 a.m. A memorial service was planned for friends and family members Wednesday at the First Baptist Church in Center, Texas.

The position opened following the exit of senior applied mathematics major Jordan Harris, who stepped down earlier this month due to personal reasons. Andrasi said her chief objective for the coming months is to prepare the student body for the

MSC’s April reopening. “The big focus as we head toward Muster and the MSC opening is to really reconnect the campus to the MSC and the programs that we’ve Andrasi been producing for the past three years, and how those are a function of the MSC,” Andrasi said.

While at A&M, Andrasi was active with MSC Freshmen in Service and Hosting (MSC FISH), eventually serving as the organization’s chair and director of development. Andrasi graduates in December, but said she plans to remain at A&M to pursue a certificate from the Bush School of Government and Public Service. Robert Carpenter, staff writer

was represented by Alison Krauss, Iron and Wine (whose performance was marked by the mysterious appearance of actor Christian Bale, filmed by director Terrence Malick walking stiffly through the perplexed crowd) and headliners My Morning Jacket. Fitz and the Tantrums, Wanda Jackson and Cee Lo Green rounded out the soul side of things, along with a headlining performance from living legend Stevie Wonder. Wonder’s performance was marred by technical difficulties. The volume in the first set was too low, leaving Wonder’s show to compete with sound coming from My Morning Jacket, even though the co-headliners were on the other side of the park. Some disappointed fans hit the exit early. Equal amounts of dust and heat greeted fans as they arrived at Zilker Park on Sunday. In a departure from the past years, the lineup on the last day was arguably the quietest and least interesting of the festival, though there were still a few hidden gems. A string of indie-rock bands, including a jangly set by The Airborne Toxic Event and Canadian

super-group Broken Social Scene, caused an unusual number of fans to spend most of the day at one end of the park, while those less inclined to standing out in the dust and sun could enjoy such acts as Dale Earnheart Jr. Jr. (one of those bands with a name that’s sillier than their sound), Death from Above 1979 and Manu Chao. While it was headliners Arcade Fire who closed the fest, beardy crooners Fleet Foxes provided the most staggering performance of the evening, replicating the complex harmonies and folky, enigmatic sound of their studio recordings with precision and grace. Arcade Fire was no slouch itself, but while the band was as deft as ever at bringing a crowd to their feet with anthems like “Wake Up,” their set was very similar to recent performances in Austin and Houston for the ears of those lucky enough to catch them in May. Overall, ACL’s 10th anniversary lived up to the last nine and managed to raise the bar just a little bit higher. Even with the technical difficulties and questionable scheduling decisions that inevitably result from a festival with this much ambition, this year proved yet again why ACL is one of the most entertaining — and fastest growing — major music festivals in the country. Alec Goetz is a junior English major.

We as people need to be aware of how diverse all cultures are in order to nurture peace and love, and to better understand each other. Another need is to explore the direct human communication and dialogue among the individuals of a community so that we can understand the diversity. Interfaith Dialogue Student Association (IDSA) was founded in 2001 at Texas A&M University to enhance dialogue between people of different backgrounds, cultures and religious traditions — both at individual and institutional levels. In order to contribute to dialogue activities in the Bryan–College Station community, IDSA organizes seminars, dinners, luncheons and various grass-root activities both on and off campus. Many participants of the IDSA activities are inspired by the discourse and pioneering dialogue initiatives of the Turkish Muslim scholar, writer and educator Fethullah Gülen. According to Gülen, dialogue is not a superfluous endeavor but an imperative, and it should start by “giving precedence to common points.” Gülen said the desire to level the differences means wishing for the impossible, because each individual is like a unique realm unto himself or herself. Peaceful coexistence “lies in respecting all these differences, considering these differences to be part of our nature and in ensuring that people appreciate these differences.” This week, IDSA is organizing “a week for Diversity Dialogues,” which was awarded under the Diversity Plan Grant by Texas A&M. The program features two distinguished speakers: Martin Marty and Karina Korostelina.

Marty is a Fairfax M. Cone Distinguished Service Professor and Emeritus of the History of Modern Christianity in the Divinity School at the University of Chicago. He is an American Lutheran religious scholar who has written extensively on 19th century and 20th century American religion. Marty earned his doctorate from the University of Chicago in 1956. He has been a columnist for the Christian Century magazine since then, and has authored more than 5,000 articles and received 75 honorary doctorates. Marty’s talk, “Relating to the Stranger: from Diagram to Dialogue” will take place from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday in room 301 of Rudder Tower. Korostelina is an associate professor of conflict analysis and resolution at George Mason University and a professor in the psychology department at National Taurida University. She is a member of National Academy of Science Institute of Psychology and a fellow of the European Research Center of Migration and Ethnic Relation (ERCOMER). She conducts research on the topics of identity conflicts, conflict resolution, reconciliation and peace building. Karina Korostelina’s talk titled “Identity-based approach to interfaith dialogue” will begin at 4 p.m. Thursday in room 301 of Rudder Tower. All Aggies are cordially invited to these seminars. Halil Okur is a chemistry graduate student.

A&M claims four ACS Fellows Texas A&M claimed four of the 12 ACS Fellows in the state, the most of any Texas institution and tied with five other schools from across the country. ACS Fellow candidates are evaluated based on multiple Bergbreiter criteria, including research, past service to ACS and contributions to education. The honorees all cited the importance of their work with their students. “My students are really important; they’re why I’m here. Dunbar It goes back to people being important,� Yennello said. Yenello added that people are at the heart of chemistry and its advances, a fact she said

Kelly Tucker Special to The Battalion During the weekend of Aug. 28, four chemistry faculty members were honored along with 209 of their peers from across the country as American Chemistry Society Fellows at the American Chemical Society’s fall meeting in Denver, Colo. The Aggie chemists named ACS Fellows were David Bergbreiter, professor of chemistry and Presidential Professor for Teaching Excellence, Kim Dunbar, distinguished professor of chemistry and Davidson Professor of Science, François GabbaĂŻ, professor of chemistry and Davidson Professor of Science and Sherry Yennello, Regents Professor of Chemistry. “I was pleased,â€? GabbaĂŻ said. “It was nice to see that four of us from Texas A&M were recognized out of about 200 people this year.â€?

was supported by the award’s criteria and the beliefs of those it honors. “We need to tap a bigger talent pool,â€? Yennello said. “We have to have a good scientific work force out there. If GabbaĂŻ we can work on getting more people in there rather than focusing on a small element of the population, the nation will be in a better place.â€? The new Aggie ACS Fellows said they plan to carry on their work in research and education, viewing the honor Yennello as encouragement to continue as leaders in chemistry. “My plans are to continue to seek challenging and interesting chemical problems to

tackle and to use them as a vehicle for educating the future leaders in our profession. Joining the ranks of the other distinguished ACS Fellows is an honor but my deepest satisfaction comes from teaching and mentoring budding young scientists who continue to inspire me on a daily basis,â€? Dunbar said. The ACS Fellowship is meant to give recognition to the chemists that epitomize what it means to not only be a good scientist, but one who understands the universal importance of chemistry and strives to make it applicable to everyday life. “There’s a slogan DuPont used to have: ‘Better living through chemistry.’ The reality is, chemistry is and will be essential not just for the public health but for everything we do. Everything, from medicine to flavors, colors, to material science, polymers‌ that’s all chemistry,â€? Bergbreiter said.

Mays launches professional MBA Emily Davis The Battalion The Mays Business School is scheduled to open a Professional MBA program in the fall of 2012. The Professional MBA program will be located in Houston in a private facility at CITYCENTRE. This location will also be the home to the highly rated Texas A&M Executive MBA program. David Blackwell, associate dean for graduate studies in the Mays Business School, said that this program is aimed at working professionals and is structured so that where they won’t have to give up their full time jobs. “In this economy, few people are willing to give up a job to pursue a professional degree,� Blackwell said. “In the program we’re going to launch, students meet every other Friday for four hours and every other Saturday for two hours. By doing this for about 22 months, you can get your MBA without leaving your job.� The program is aimed at young professionals with about five years of work experience. Because of this, there are some structural differences between the Professional MBA program and Executive MBA program, which is aimed at professionals with about 17 years of work experience. “The Executive MBA is offered in a modular format. This means that each weekend, programs are offered on different topics. These topics run somewhat independently of each other, but run together into a course,� Blackwell said. “PMBA courses are offered in a more traditional way. Students will see one professor for each course.� Houston was chosen as the location for this program for several reasons, including the large population of A&M alumni in Houston. Many of these Aggies, he

said, want to get their professional degree from A&M, and A&M is highly regarded by the energy industry centered in Houston. “The Houston market is strategic for A&M. Most of these kinds of programs hire part time faculty in a remote location. But we are going to use our very best College Station faculty,� Blackwell said. “So our location needs to be close enough for our faculty to drive there.� Blackwell said he has spoken to the top members of the faculty, and many of them support the effort. John Krajicek, executive professor of communication studies, has agreed to work with the program. “I love working with executives and young professionals,� Krajicek said. “Sometimes younger students see my subject area as secondary to finance, accounting, etc. But those who are in the working world know well that communication is one of the keys to success. I don’t need to convince them. They walk in the door on day one ready to get to work.� Bala Shetty, executive associate dean of the Mays Business School, has also agreed to work with the PMBA program. “As a faculty member, I learn a great deal from the students’ expertise in the industry they represent,� Shetty said. “Also, An MBA from Texas A&M University will prepare these young professionals to move up rapidly in the corporate world. They will help A&M by providing internship and job opportunities to our undergraduate students, speaking in our oncampus classes, and serving on various boards on campus that help us stay current with our educational offerings.�

On Constitution Day, which was Saturday, thousands of A&M fans tailgating around campus before the A&M, Idaho football game heard an uncommon performance from Albritton Bell Tower. At 3 p.m. the bells played patriotic music as part of “Bells Across America,� a movement to honor the Constitution and its continuing role in our country. During the game, the Aggie Band also honored the Constitution in their halftime performance. Stacey Naylor, junior education major, said the Constitution is a document that continues to ensure the freedoms that students enjoy and take for granted. “Looking at the Bill of Rights, the Constitution has allowed many students opportunities here at Texas A&M, such as having freedom of speech and religion, and allowing

Jason Syptak: Aggies follow New York’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week

The Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at New York’s Lincoln Center is one of the dominant attractions for fashionistas and fashionistos around the nation. Magazines, news publications, company representatives and everyday people flock to the city hoping to secure an elusive front-row seat to awe at the week’s magnificence and glamour. More than 130 prestigious, luxurious brands and designers showcase S/S12 collections (spring/summer 2012) to the world. Texas A&M students, however, are not able to experience the “oohing� and “awing� firsthand. Fashion followers learn of Fashion Week’s specifics from the internet, newspapers, magazines and social media networks. “Last week was the world renowned fashion week,� said DeVonta Lee, junior sociology major. “Fashion week is a well-publicized event that literally takes over Facebook and Twitter. All of my favorite celebrities and news sources keep me informed.� Power brands and designers like DKNY, Givenchy, Marc Jacobs, Dolce & Gabbana, Calvin Klein, Perry Ellis and Diesel trend on the internet throughout the week. Shared pictures and insights engage those intrigued by fashion to join the conversation. According to the Mercedes-Benz Fashion week website, YouTube, Maybelline New York and Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week agreed on a live video streaming collaboration. This allows people around the world to watch live footage of behind-the-scenes action. Students may or may not avidly watch live streaming runway videos on YouTube. However, students do have fashion perspectives. “Fashion is important to me,� said Marie Ramey, senior nutrition major. “It’s an expression of oneself.� Whether students express themselves through clothes and accessories, or through other means such as books, cars, organizations or technologies, they choose how to project their identity. “It is important to distinguish yourself in today’s society, because it’s hard to be an individual — especially in younger generations — when so many people are trying to conform to societal norms,� Ramey said. Aggies walk around the University with

Models strut the runway at Lincoln Center, New York. different skin colors, heights, weights and fashion articles. Normally, students wear basketball shorts, “status shorts� (the shortshorts with assorted colors), t-shirts, bright shirt advertisements, Ray-Ban sunglasses and Sperry boat shoes. Rarely are there instances where students dress to impress. There aren’t many elaborate clothing variations in Aggieland compared to runways. “I don’t see too many fashion trends here at Texas A&M,� said Jazmin Zurita, junior marketing major. “But Mays definitely has some fashion examples when business meetings are being held in the evenings.� New York City exudes fashion energy, as people appear to be more creative with clothing choices. The population mixes-andmatches patterns, while molding bold outfits for daily wear. “I tend to dress up the way I’m feeling that day,� said Zurita. Whether or not students choose to fashionably dress for a runway show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, the clothes college students wear are reflective of each individual. “Fashion, or its lack thereof, is important to learning who someone is, where they come from and how they enjoy expressing themselves on that day or any given day,� Lee said. Those who are bummed about missing the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week are still able to catch the London Fashion Week, which began Sept. 16 and runs until Sept. 21. Jason Syptak is a senior marketing major and New Media editor for The Battalion.

An exhibit about the Constitution is also open to the public throughout the week at the Evans, West Campus, Medical Sciences and Policy Sciences and Economics libraries. On Wednesday, the Wiley Lecture Series will hold a forum titled “Too Big to Curtail?: the Powers of Congress and the Federal Reserve to Budget and Take on Debt.� at 6:30 p.m. in Koldus Room 111. Sophomore kinesiology major Jocelyn Nagle said the A&M community holds a special appreciation for the Constitution and its principles. “The Constitution is also known as an accumulation of American traditions and precedents, setting the standard for pride in America. Texas A&M, like America, takes pride in its founding fathers and documents and carries these traditions through generations,� Nagle said. “The Constitution is what gave us all of the rights and freedoms we still have today.�
