LSU cheerleader Kip Carter was struck by a vehicle on River Road early Sunday morning, according to his mother Dana Carter. Dana Carter said her son sustained injuries to his neck and CARTER vertebrae, a concussion and a hematoma — a collection of blood outside the blood vessels — to the brain. She said he is currently in ICU at Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center and is “doing better.” Dana Carter said she received a phone call around 3:30 a.m. explaining the incident, but she isn’t sure of the exact time of the hit-and-run.

Skateboarding competition held on Mississippi River barge Josh Naquin Staff Writer
NEW ORLEANS — A 195-foot barge-turned-skate park ended its 1,705-mile, 28-day journey down the Mississippi River with a championship skateboarding competition on the river banks of New Orleans on Sunday night. The event, dubbed Mississippi Grind and sponsored by Red Bull, has been nearly three years in the making, according to Benji Meyer, who ﬁrst conceptualized
the idea when ﬁlming a skateboarding project near the riverside in Minnesota. “Let’s send a skate park down the Mississippi River,” Meyer said to a friend, half-joking. The innovative idea gained traction in the coming years. Darin Limvere, one of Meyer’s fellow ﬁlm makers on the project, described Mississippi Grind’s path to fruition. “The ﬁrst time we actually saw the thing we were blown away,” Limvere said. “That idea
that we had on a napkin at one point was now a reality.” The tricked-out barge, which includes concrete ramps and several metal rails, began its voyage in St. Paul, Minn., and stopped at three cities along the Mississippi River before culminating its journey in New Orleans. A crowd of more than 150 attended Sunday’s event and spectated from the river bank where the barge was stationed. GRIND, see page 15

Venezuela’s capital put 120 mimes at intersections to control traffic
Calif. passes law banning use of tanning beds for teenagers under 18
‘The Help’ actress serves in lowranking high school’s homecoming
CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — A part of Venezuela’s capital is giving dangerous drivers the silent treatment, sending mimes into the streets to do what police alone have not: tame the lawless trafﬁc. About 120 mimes dressed in clown-like outﬁts and white gloves took to the streets of the Sucre district this past week, wagging their ﬁngers at trafﬁc violators and at pedestrians who streaked across busy avenues rather than waiting at crosswalks. Paul McCartney gets married to American heiress in London
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California has become the ﬁrst state to make it illegal for teenagers under 18 to use tanning beds. Gov. Jerry Brown said Sunday that he has signed SB746 into law. It goes into effect Jan. 1. Currently, children 14 and under cannot use tanning beds in California. Children ages 15-17 can tan with their parents’ permission. The bill’s author, state Sen. Ted Lieu, says California is the ﬁrst state to set a higher age limit. Texas has the next highest age limit of 16.
GREENSBURG, La. (AP) — Efforts to turn around St. Helena Parish’s troubled schools, which languish at the bottom of state rankings, went Hollywood glam at St. Helena Central High School’s homecoming. Actress Aunjanue Ellis, who plays Yula Mae Davis in the movie “The Help,” served as one grand marshal for the homecoming parade. The other was Lawrence Jackson, band director at Southern University. Bringing successful people to interact with St. Helena’s students is a crucial part of changing the mindset of the students, Superintendent Kelli Joseph said.

LONDON (AP) — Former Beatle Paul McCartney was marrying American heiress Nancy Shevell on Sunday at a town hall in central London where a large crowd of fans and paparazzi turned out to greet them. The couple waved to the hundreds of spectators before walking up the steps of Old Marlyebone Town Hall for the ceremony. Shevell was wearing a white dress designed by McCartney’s daughter Stella as she and McCartney arrived at the town hall. Shevell, 51, is to become McCartney’s third wife.

Thrill-seekers to run with the bulls in Arizona, much like Pamplona in Spain PHOENIX (AP) — The bulls are better tempered, slower and their horns have been blunted, and this deﬁnitely isn’t Pamplona. Nonetheless, they are bulls, and nearly two dozen of them will be chasing after hundreds of humans on a quarter-mile track this coming weekend in the small town of Cave Creek, Ariz., despite objections from animal advocates and town ofﬁcials. Cave Creek’s run is loosely fashioned after the annual event in Spain in which thousands of daredevils trip over each other in a mad dash from angry bulls.

Police have strong campus presence during game days
More than 300 officers on patrol Brian Sibille Staff Writer
Bottles of beer, thousands of rowdy fans and “Tiger baiting” are all part of the University’s football gameday tradition. With all the commotion, game days are some of the busiest days of the year for Baton Rouge authorities. More than 300 police officers patrol campus every time the Tigers invade Death Valley, said Capt. Cory Lalonde, LSU Police Department spokesman. Crowd control is LSUPD’s main task, but officers from the Baton Rouge Police Department, the Sheriff’s office, Louisiana State Troopers and other Louisiana authorities help with the daunting task. “The No. 1 goal is to make campus safe on game days,” Lalonde said. Whether the Tigers win or lose, he said the department considers a successful game to be one without a
large number of calls and reports. Any LSUPD officer not on patrol is required to work the games, putting in about 16 hours each time, he said. Many officers ride bicycles to better navigate the campus area when game day traffic takes over Baton Rouge. Lalonde said this makes it easier for officers to respond quickly to calls because they can avoid motor vehicle traffic. “Traffic is the biggest and most common issue,” he said. The large number of tailgates also lends to an increase in vehicle burglaries, Lalonde said. In addition, officers deal with an increase in public disturbances because of alcohol’s popularity at tailgates, he said. Such a large volume of people mixed with alcohol consumption means an increase in fights and altercations, Lalonde said. LSUPD officers have better knowledge of campus, so stadium security is often left to Sheriff’s officers and Louisiana Office of Alcohol and Tobacco Control authorities, he said. The stadium is thoroughly checked by officers
before every game. Emergency Medical Service personnel are also on the scene throughout the day to assist with heat and alcohol-related health emergencies, which are common at games. “There’s a fine line between enjoyment and things getting out of control,” Lalonde said. Adrienne Wood, history freshman, said her experience after many years of tailgating is that police are “around too much” and “obnoxious.” “They’re a buzz kill, and they’re always breaking up tailgating spots,” she said. While they may take some things too seriously, law enforcement is necessary at games, said Taylor Ledet, nutrition sophomore. Ledet said she’s witnessed officers pop fans’ balloons for seemingly no reason, but their goal is to keep people safe. “They’re necessary because some people get too drunk,” said Keene Miller, electrical engineering freshman.

LSU TEXT helps fans at home games Answers facility, stadium questions
Morgan Searles Staff Writer
Fans in Death Valley have a new service at their disposal when problems arise in Tiger Stadium. LSU TEXT, a text messaging system run by LSU’s game management staff, is a fan service intended to enhance event experience and allow game attendees to give feedback to the Athletic Department. Stadium visitors can text in questions or complaints related to guest services, security, stadium facilities and unruly fans by texting “LSU,” their question and location to 69050. The system was first used during the Oct. 1 game against Kentucky. Fans submitted 11 legitimate questions about operational issues, 15 questions on topics not covered by the service and only one prank text, according to David Taylor, director of Event Management. When a text comes in, it is recorded and tagged by topic, such as game management, facility or medical, Taylor explained. If the text includes an easily answered question, a pre-written response is sent to the user with the necessary information. For more complicated issues, an official will be dispatched to assess and take care of the reported problem. “We have a limited number of radios with the event staff and our eyes can only see so much,” Taylor said. “This service extends our eyes and ears, and we get instant feedback from the fans.” Taylor said because the service uses a short code rather than a full
phone number to communicate, fans should not have a problem sending messages in the stadium. The Athletic Department intends to use LSU TEXT at all of its athletic events. Taylor said the amount of use the system will get is difficult to predict. “In discussion with counterparts at other universities using the text service, they’ve found higher volumes initially, but numbers curtailed off,” he said. “But bigger games may have an increase in volume.” Taylor said the Athletic Department contracted and pays for the service from In Stadium Solutions (ISS 24/7), a privately held company based in southern Florida. The service is advertised during games with signage in the
stadium, PA announcements and images posted on ribbon boards. Regular text messaging rates apply for the LSU TEXT system. Contact Morgan Searles at email@example.com

New Renaissance Hotel opens on Bluebonnet Hotel includes 256 guest rooms Morgan Searles Staff Writer
A 12-story Renaissance Hotel on Bluebonnet Boulevard opens today, offering 256 guest rooms to Baton Rouge visitors. The 206,000-square foot hotel includes a fitness center, outdoor pool, lounging deck and other features. Thirteen thousand-square feet of meeting space will include a 7,500-square foot ballroom and eight large meeting rooms, according to a news release. The opening of the Renaissance marks the first suburban construction of a full-service hotel in Baton Rouge in more than 20 years, the release stated. Louisiana artist CC Lockwood contributed to the interior design of the hotel with interpretations of local artwork. Of the 256 rooms, 63 are luxury hotel suites with king or double queen beds, flat screen televisions and iPod docking stations. A private concierge lounge and 28 rooms make up the Concierge
Club Level. Accommodations include room service, valet parking, onsite parking, high-speed Internet access in all guest rooms and a top-of-the-line business center, the release said. Tallulah, a casual upscale restaurant featuring Louisiana cuisine, also opens with the hotel. Executive Chef Andy Papson oversees Tallulah as well as the other food and dining operations in the Renaissance. Peter Dunn, general manager, said in the release the new hotel will provide a one-of-a-kind experience. “Our four-diamond amenities, our charismatic staff and our surrounding community beckon guests to see, taste and experience all that Renaissance has to offer,” Dunn said. The Renaissance Baton Rouge Hotel is developed and owned by locally based Wampold Companies and managed by Memphis-based Davidson Hotels & Resorts.

Members of the LSU and Southern University communities expressed differing ideas on attaining world peace at a forum Sunday night, but all agreed that inner peace and stronger female leadership are essential steps. The forum was held at the International Cultural Center in recognition of Louisiana’s World Peace Day, which was observed Oct. 1. Panel members came from multiple cultural and ethnic backgrounds, including Africa and the Middle East. Each member explained their definition of world peace, an idea they all acknowledged as difficult to describe. Southern University foreign language instructor Marie P.L. Correa said world peace is an end to injustice, inequality and wars. The West African native said world peace strongly depends on peace of self and peace in smaller communities. Correa said a stronger understanding of language and communication between different cultures is essential for peace. World peace could be achieved in the near future, said Adenike Olatunji-Akioye, Nigerian veterinarian and LSU School of Veterinary Medicine visiting researcher. Olatunji-Akioye said women are important to world peace because of their power to influence. “As women, we have the most opportunity to spread world peace,” she said. She said all people should act with a “mother’s heart,” explaining that people should treat their ideas and desires as a mother

would treat their child. Shifteh Khalili, University psychology senior, said women have started to gain influence in places like Iran, her native country. Khalili said Shirin Ebadi, the first Muslim woman to win the Nobel Peace Prize, is an example of how Middle Eastern women are fostering change. She said women need to continue being mothers and instilling the idea of world peace into future generations. Correa and Olatunji-Akioye both said world peace is an idea that starts at home. Correa said inner peace is necessary for a person who wishes to spread a message of world peace. She said peace from within means to “have love for yourself.” Peace of mind affects interactions with others, and individuals with inner tranquility have a
stronger ability to spread peaceful messages, she said. El-Shaddai Kure, a Nigerian, said he advocates world peace but does not believe it can be accomplished on a global level. Kure, Southern University business senior, said human nature deters countries from ending war, but peace of self and peace on smaller levels is more realistic. But world peace cannot come at a price that compromises humans’ rights, said Jackson Voss, University mass communication and political science sophomore. Voss said the events of the Holocaust are an example of oppression that would have continued if peace was chosen over war.

Frey building home to epicenter of campus’ Internet Facilities being renovated
Joshua Bergeron Contributing Writer
One of the most unknown and secure rooms on campus is getting a facelift. Hidden in a corner of the Frey Computing Center is the 14,400-square foot Machine Room and next to it is the Network Operations Center. The NOC monitors the University’s expansive Internet network and controls security for Frey Computing Center. Currently, the center can’t expand its computing capacity because it has used up all power and cooling capacity. But renovations under way are working to change that. The project has been in the works for some time but is just now coming to fruition, according to Sheri Thompson, IT Communications and Planning officer. The final phase of the project began this summer and will be completed by the end of the fall semester. “We are doubling our power capacity with this project,” Thompson said. “After this project is complete, we will have added 500 kilowatts to our power supply.” Although power and cooling are important parts of the NOC and Machine Room, a retractable barrier at the entrance to the NOC alludes to the fact that there

Power cords lay on the floor of the Machine Room in the Frey Computing Center. The center is currently being renovated to expand computing capacity.
is significantly more behind the walls. A small scanner controls access to the NOC, the powerhouse behind the University’s Internet system. Inside, a raised floor hides thousands of feet of cooling infrastructure and various bundles of wires. On the left are four screens onto which several interfaces are projected. Each screen tells analysts something different. One shows access to different rooms and another is color-coded according to specific kinds of network traffic. The NOC’s
mainframe sits between the analysts’ desks. The mainframe controls several things, like students’ grades and employee paychecks. “There is always someone in the NOC monitoring the network,” said IT analyst Ethan Bateman. “The NOC operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.” Besides ensuring the University’s Internet stays online across campus, the NOC also monitors the Louisiana Optical Network Initiative, which provides Internet access to various research institutions in Louisiana
and Mississippi. “One of the things we do is monitor access points around campus,” Bateman said. “Systems actively monitor the network. That way we can tell if whole buildings go offline.” Bateman said the NOC also functions as a call center when the ITS help desk is closed. Business marketing senior Holly Sheldon is one of the many student workers in the NOC. Sheldon said her responsibilities vary depending on what needs to be done, but her time at the NOC up to this point has been a great learning experience. “It is a different kind of job,” Sheldon said. “It isn’t a boring desk job, but it also isn’t strict and unenjoyable either.” Sheldon said a lot of her time lately has been spent preparing the Machine Room for construction. The room’s temperature remains cool to prevent the servers from over-heating and causing a fire. If there is ever a fire, the NOC has a dispersant that will immediately activate without harming any technology. “The dispersant gets rid of all oxygen in the room,” Thompson said. “It doesn’t actually shoot out anything like a normal extinguisher; it simply displaces the oxygen so that the fire is stopped.”
Inside the Machine Room sit neatly arranged rows of servers for different functions. A few of the servers operate on parts from one of the University’s old super computers named Super Mike. Blinking multi-colored lights and buzzing machines indicate ongoing processes, although the room is surprisingly quiet. The only noise is a subdued humming and the occasional voice breaking the serenity. In one corner of the room sits the Tezpur, a 15-teraflop super computer, which will eventually be replaced due to the progressive nature of technology, Thompson said. These servers are used by various departments on campus for different functions, which ITS declined to comment on in detail for security reasons. Although most don’t know about the Machine Room or NOC, these rooms serve important functions. “If the NOC and Machine Room go down, basically all network traffic stops,” Thompson said. “PAWS, Moodle, email and numerous other things would cease until the NOC and Machine Room were back up and running.” Contact Joshua Bergeron at email@example.com

WACKY NEWS Minn. woman accused of robbing home to pay for porn addiction
Wildlife officials use robo-deer to catch nighttime poachers
EAST BETHEL, Minn. (AP) — Authorities say an 18-year-old Minnesota woman admitted to investigators that she broke into a neighbor’s home three times looking for items she could pawn to feed her porn addiction. Anoka County sheriff’s investigators say the neighbor called to report he had surveillance footage of Amanda Rose Owens sneaking into his East Bethel home through a dog door. The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports that the neighbor set up the camera after $300 and several items were stolen. Investigators say Owens admitted she had broken in three times. She said she need money so she could pay for 20 to 30 pornographic DVDs she bought. Owens was charged Wednesday with second-degree burglary. She does not have a listed phone number and it wasn’t clear Saturday if she had an attorney.
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Nighttime deer poachers beware — that shadowy creature on the side of the road may just be remote-controlled. State wildlife ofﬁcials across the country have for several decades been rolling out roadside robot decoys to nab unscrupulous hunters, and the effort has paid off with hundreds of citations. A robotic deer decoy used in Georgia had to be replaced in 2006 after being shot more than 1,000 times. “It’s a time of year when some Utahns can’t resist the sight of a big buck on the side of the road — even if shooting hours are over for the day,” said Amy Canning, a spokeswoman for the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources. Utah’s ﬁve DWR regions now each have their own robot decoys, which are deployed in various spots along roadways where deer often gather or where poachers have been a problem in the past. Hunting is not allowed at night in Utah, starting a half hour after sunset until a half hour before sunrise, but authorities say the sight of a big deer on the side of a road can just be too tempting for some. Once a plan is in place, authorities put the mechanical deer near a road where it can be seen by passing cars. Then they hide nearby and keep watch, waiting for someone to take the bait, occasionally using the remote control to move the decoy’s head and tail “to make it look as realistic as possible,” said Utah DWR Sgt. Matt Briggs. “We try to mimic some of the movement that takes place in the ﬁeld,” he said. Hunters will generally use headlights to illuminate the deer, then take their shot. It doesn’t matter if it’s a bow and arrow or a riﬂe — if it’s at night, it’s illegal without special permission, Briggs said. The shooters in Utah are issued a class B misdemeanor citation, punishable by up to six months in jail and up to a $1,000
Facebook status feud results in Texas man’s battery charge, arrest CARLSBAD, N.M. (AP) — A Texas man is facing battery charges after police say he hit his estranged New Mexico wife and pulled her hair over her lack of a response to his Facebook status update. The Carlsbad Current-Argus reports that 36-year-old Benito Apolinar of Pecos, Texas, was arrested Monday following a ﬁght at the Carlsbad, N.M., home of Dolores Apolinar. According to the criminal complaint, Benito Apolinar posted a comment on his Facebook page about the anniversary of his mother’s death, but Dolores Apolinar didn’t click the “like” status button. The complaint says Benito Apolinar told his wife that he was unhappy that she didn’t respond as others did. Police say that’s when a ﬁght began. Benito Apolinar pleaded not guilty to one charge of battery. It was unclear if he had hired an attorney.

ﬁne. Authorities also seize their weapons. Briggs said he’s seen it all, from bow hunters shooting multiple arrows at the inanimate robot deer, amazed that it’s not going down, to shooters with riﬂes repeatedly ﬁring shots at the mechanical beast. “I’ve seen an individual shoot it with a 30-06 (riﬂe) and couldn’t ﬁgure out why it didn’t go down after he hit it ﬁve or six times,” Briggs said. “It can be really entertaining.”
Monday, October 10, 2011 Turkish police stung after contraband cigarette smugglers release bees ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — A Turkish news agency says suspected smugglers set loose a swarm of bees on 15 police ofﬁcers searching for contraband cigarettes hidden among a truckload of hives. The state-run Anatolia agency says police, acting on a tip, stopped the truck in the southern city of Adana on Sunday. The alleged smugglers then set some of the bees free to prevent police
from searching the vehicle. There was no information on the ofﬁcers’ conditions. The agency said the truck was later searched by ofﬁcers in beekeeping gear who seized some 32,500 packs of smuggled cigarettes. The truck driver and two beekeepers were arrested.

Tigers lead Harris Interactive Poll LSU receives 71 first-place votes
ZACH BREAUX / The Daily Reveille
LSU sophomore defensive tackle Bennie Logan (93) breaks through the offensive line Saturday and rushes Florida’s freshman quarterback, Jacoby Brissett (17), during the Tigers’ 41-11 game against the Florida Gators. Because of injuries to the teams top two quarterbacks, the Gators used a three-man rotation.
Three quarterbacks not enough for Florida to overcome Tiger defense Scott Branson Sports Contributor
The last time Florida came to Tiger Stadium with a freshman quarterback, Chris Leak, the Tigers came out on the losing end. This time, the result was much different. Florida came to LSU without the services of its starting quarterback, senior John Brantley, or
freshman backup Jeff Driskel. Both were out with leg injuries sustained last weekend against Alabama. With no clear third option at quarterback, the Gators turned to a three-man rotation. Freshman quarterback Jacoby Brissett started the game, taking his first collegiate snaps. He completed 8 of 14 passes for 94 yards, including one touchdown and two interceptions.
Florida also used sophomore running back Trey Burton and senior running back Chris Rainey at quarterback. Besides Brissett, only Burton attempted to pass, completing 1 of 2 attempts for six yards. Despite the revolving door at signal caller, LSU sophomore defensive lineman Sam ROTATION, see page 14
The LSU football team is one step closer to a top spot in the Bowl Championship Series standings, which will be revealed Sunday. The Tigers topped the season’s first Harris Interactive Poll, which is one of three components used to calculate the BCS standings, along with the Coaches’ Poll and computer rankings. LSU received 71 of the 115 first-place votes. Alabama and Oklahoma were No. 2 and No. 3, respectively, despite the Sooners receiving seven more first-place votes in the Harris Poll, which is compiled by 115 panelists, including media members and former coaches, players and administrators. Oklahoma stayed atop the Coaches’ Poll, with LSU at No. 2 and Oklahoma at No. 3. The first nine teams in the Harris and Associated Press polls were identical to last week’s standings. The AP Poll had Arkansas at No. 10 and Michigan at No. 11, while the Harris Poll flipped the two teams. Florida and Florida State were both dropped from the AP Top 25 rankings, marking the first time since 1982 that no team from the Sunshine State was represented.

The Tigers won the first game, 9-3, and the second, 3-2. “I learned a lot about them today,” Torina said. “Just by putting them in game situations, you see things that we can’t create in practice.” Torina said she was happy to
have all 22 players see playing time. In the first game, redshirt sophomore transfer Ashleigh Kuhn led the Tigers by going 4-for-4 with four RBIs. “I feel awesome, especially since I transferred from Northwestern State and I’ve been working really hard,” Kuhn said. Kuhn said she was excited to don an LSU uniform for the first time. “I couldn’t sleep all last night, and all day I was jumping around and smiling,” she said.
Offensively, LSU had 14 hits and two stolen bases in the first game. Sophomores Simone Heyward, Tammy Wray and Jacee Blades each had two hits. “I was very pleased to see how many hits we got, and every inning someone got a hit,” said senior pitcher Brittany Mack. Mack, a 2011 third-team AllAmerican, started the first game and pitched five innings. Mack struck out seven batters, allowing four hits and two runs. SCRIMMAGES, see page 13

Tigers’ jump pass vindicates ghosts of Florida past BODY SHOTS
Rob Landry Sports columnist One play can remedy a lifetime of pain. LSU coach Les Miles’ call to have senior quarterback Jordan Jefferson throw the ever-loathed jump pass with 12:20 remaining in the fourth quarter of LSU’s 4111 drubbing of Florida put many of those evil ghosts to rest for good. LSU fans have lived with horrid memories of the Steve Spurrier era for years. The remnants of 58-3, 41-9 and 56-13 beatdowns haunt them like a bad dream. The Ol’ Ball Coach poured on the points with no regard for the debris he left behind. He went 11-1 against the Tigers at Florida from 1990 to 2001 and outscored LSU by a combined total of 421145. Every year — sans the 1997 upset — was the same old story. Spurrier’s “Fun ‘N Gun” offense would run roughshod through an outmanned and outcoached LSU team. It was 60 minutes of inhumane torture and public humiliation. When Spurrier finally fled The Swamp for the NFL’s supposed greener pastures, the Tiger faithful thought the reign of terror was finally coming to an end. The Gators hired Ron Zook to be their head coach and he immediately led them to mediocrity. Zook’s crowning achievement as Florida’s head man came in 2003 when he upset No. 6 LSU, 19-7, in Death Valley with true freshman Chris Leak under center. LSU would go on to win the national title that season, but the Florida hiccup caused the Associated Press poll to name one-loss Southern California No. 1.
After Zook was relieved of his duties in 2004, Urban Meyer stepped into his role as head Swamp Monster. Meyer led the Gators back to among the nation’s elite. He won a national championship in 2006 — just his second year at the helm. During the 2006 campaign, Meyer’s crew hosted LSU in Gainesville, Fla. With the game tied 7-7 and nearing halftime, Florida trotted out highly touted freshman quarterback Tim Tebow with the ball on the LSU 1-yard line. Tebow took the snap, made like he was going to run up the middle for a touchdown, but pulled up, jumped up in the air and tossed the ball over the crowd of linemen to tight end Tate Casey for a touchdown. The unconventional touchdown play gave Florida a lead it would never surrender. The Gators won the game, 23-10, and the jump pass went down like a gulp of spoiled milk for the Tiger fans. It sat in their stomachs and continued to fester and rot. It would take a special win against the Gators to finally feel avenged. Jefferson’s toss to senior tight end Mitch Joseph culminated the healing process. It was pure poetic justice. The only way it could have been a better fit would have been if Meyer was on the opposite sideline to receive the payback. But better than that play was the way LSU played from start to finish. Minus a small lapse in focus early in the third quarter, the Tigers looked like one of Spurrier’s teams from the 1990s. They smelled blood on the Florida sideline and feasted. LSU out-gained Florida 453213 in total yardage and picked up 20 first downs to Florida’s nine.
And the score could have been worse. The Tigers ran a fake punt with freshman punter Brad Wing that went 52 yards for a touchdown, but an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty on Wing nullified it. The Tigers settled for a field goal instead of a touchdown on the drive. Saturday’s win was LSU’s largest margin of victory against the Gators since a 48-7 win in 1971. The closest the Tigers have come to thoroughly dominating Florida in recent history was in 2002 when the Tigers stormed out of The Swamp with a 36-7 victory. But that game still has a cloud of negativity surrounding it. With the game in the fourth quarter and LSU in full control, quarterback Matt Mauck scrambled up the middle and broke his foot in the process. Mauck was out for the season, and LSU finished the year 3-4 in his absence. Saturday had no setback. It was just an exorcism from the demons that have been floating around for more than two decades. Seeing Miles and company go for the jugular against the Orange and Blue was a sight that left everyone from current Florida coach Will Muschamp to Spurrier forced to tip their cap (or visor).

Florida sweeps LSU on Sunday with dominating third set
Albert Burford Sports Contributor
The LSU volleyball team couldn’t keep up with Florida on Sunday. The Tigers (11-6, 4-3 Southeastern Conference) were swept for only the second time this season as errors haunted the team in Gainesville, Fla. The first set was a 25-16 win for the No. 13 Gators (13-3, 6-1 SEC), but the Tigers kept it tight in the second set, eventually falling, 25-23, after leading, 23-22, late in the set.
In the third set, the Tigers folded and committed 11 errors, losing 25-8. “We can take some good things out of set two, but if you stand toeto-toe with somebody, you’ve got to come out and fight again, and we really just shut down,” said LSU coach Fran Flory. “We have to be, mentally, a whole lot tougher and physically tougher than we were tonight.” Flory said the Tigers had trouble focusing on their game plan. “I have to do a better job of making sure our kids understand how to manage our style of play,”
Flory said. “Our style is a smarter offensive style, not just power.” Senior defensive specialist Lauren Waclawczyk said the team tried to do too much. “I think we were trying to be superwomen out there when really all we needed to do was just do us,” she said. “If we just do us, it works.” Florida, which leads the SEC in service aces, tallied six against LSU. But the weekend wasn’t all bad news for the Tigers. LSU broke its two-game losing streak Friday with a 3-1 win at South Carolina (9-8, 0-7 SEC). Senior middle
blocker Michele Williams drilled 18 kills in the match, while sophomore middle blocker Desiree Elliott added 17 of her own and junior outside hitter Madie Jones tacked on 15. Freshman middle blocker Marissa Maas earned her second and third starts of the season this weekend, while contributing four blocks and four kills against the Gamecocks. The Tigers will now prepare for a homestand next weekend. “We’ve got two big matches with Georgia and Auburn, so we’ve got to get re-focused on that,”
Waclawczyk said. “We’ve got to pull out those two wins — they’re very important for us.” Flory said the home matches will be helpful for LSU, which is adjusting its offense. “We’re glad to have the extra day of practice,” Flory said. “When we don’t travel, we get to practice three days rather than two days and that’s a huge difference when you’re trying to implement a new lineup and do some different things.“ Contact Albert Burford at firstname.lastname@example.org
LSU bounces back to beat Kentucky, loses 2-1 to Vandy
Chris Abshire Sports Writer
Behind senior midfielder Natalie Martineau’s two goals and a gritty defensive effort, the LSU soccer team bounced back from a heartbreaking loss on Friday to defeat No. 10 Kentucky, 2-0, in Lexington, Ky., on Sunday. The victory kept the No. 18 Tigers — now 5-1 in league play — tied for the overall lead in the Southeastern Conference with No. 2 Florida. LSU (10-4-1) also owns a two-game lead in the SEC West over preseason favorite Auburn. LSU, which split the weekend road trip after a 2-1 loss to Vanderbilt, became the first team to win on Kentucky’s home turf this season by stunting an aggressive Wildcat offensive push and using some timely
scoring from Martineau in a typically physical Sunday match. Just before halftime, junior midfielder Natalie Ieyoub played a through ball to Martineau, who snuck past the back line before dribbling around Kentucky freshman goalie Kayla Price and finding the empty net on the shot to put LSU ahead, 1-0. “When you’re able to force a keeper out of the net, it makes the chances easier, especially off the great passing from the midfield,” said LSU coach Brian Lee. Martineau wasn’t done, though, taking a pass from senior Taryne Boudreau in the 66th minute and finding the far post from 10 yards out for a 2-0 LSU advantage. Martineau has been the Tigers’ primary facilitator this year, notching eight assists this fall before
tripling her total goals scored with two against the Wildcats. “We’ve got a lot of faith in Natalie’s ability to create goals, whether it’s passing or setting things up,” Lee said. “The finishing touches just happened to fall her way today.” Lee said the defensive performance was a catalyst for the offensive chances in a rugged match. “It was so back and forth, both teams fighting hard and trading chances,” he said. “They’re more direct than we are, so they were coming free with good possession out of the midfield. Winning comfortably in a tough game was fulfilling.” And LSU needed the win and
three points after an exhilarating and ultimately frustrating loss at Vanderbilt on Friday night. The Tigers took a 1-0 lead in the 57th minute after sophomore Addie Eggleston cleaned up a deflected shot by junior striker Carlie Banks and buried the ball in the net from six yards out. But LSU played perhaps its sloppiest match of the season, committing 16 fouls to set up numerous Commodore free kicks, one of which set up the tying goal in the 68th minute. LSU dominated the overtime action, but couldn’t capitalize on several crosses in the penalty box throughout the extra action before
Vanderbilt freshman forward Gena Inbusch pushed the golden goal past LSU senior goalkeeper Mo Isom in the 103rd minute. It was the Tigers’ first loss since a 1-0 Sept. 2 setback at Rice, which also came in two overtimes. “We played well enough to win, got the lead, but just gave away too many free kicks,” Lee said. “But the weekend was fantastic overall. Getting a split on a tough SEC road trip isn’t a disappointment.”

Lady Tigers win Tar Heel Invitational
Morgan Wampold Sports Contributor
The No. 3 LSU women’s golf team now has two first-place finishes after winning the Tar Heel Invitational in Chapel Hill, N.C. this weekend. The Lady Tigers established themselves in the first round, finishing in a tie for second place with a combined 4-under par 284 team score. Freshman Madelene Sagstrom posted a 4-under-par 68 to put her in a three-way tie for first place. Sagstrom posted a 2-under-par 70 in the second round, dropping her to third place overall and putting the team in a tie for first with No. 4 Alabama. Senior Tessa Teachman and sophomore Lindsay Gahm added to the Lady Tigers’ score in
the second round, with each posting 1-under-par 71s. The third round belonged to the Lady Tigers, as they combined for a team total of 1-under-par. LSU finished the tournament with an 8-under-par 856. Sagstrom again led the pack in the third round as she fired a 1-under-par 71, giving her a 7-underpar 209 total for the tournament and putting her in a tie for fifth place. The Lady Tigers had two other players also place in the top 20, with Teachman tying for 11th place with a 2-under-par 214 and sophomore Austin Ernst tying for 15th place with a 1-over-par 217. Alabama finished the tournament in second place after posting 18 bogies and four double bogeys in the third round, dropping the team score to 4-under-par 860.
Lady Tigers return home from Texas, Calif. Adrian Wintz
The LSU women’s tennis team faced a tough week, and the rain didn’t help their cause. Inclement weather made play impossible Sunday at the Rice Fall Invitational in Houston and Wednesday at the ITA/ Riviera All-American Qualifying tournament in Pacific Palisades, Calif. Five Lady Tigers played singles in Houston, and all five lost their first-round matches. Freshman Rebecca Bodine advanced all the way to the consolation finals in her bracket after losing her first match of the tournament. Sophomores Yvette Vlaar and Ariel Morton won their first-round doubles match Friday, 8-4. The pair lost its next match Saturday, losing 9-8 (7), but won the consolation match, 8-4. Bodine and junior Ebie Wilson fell in their first doubles match of the tournament Friday, 8-1. The pair of sophomore Hayley Everett and freshman Paige Bahnsen also fell in the first round of doubles, 8-1. “Overall on Friday, we struggled a little bit,” said assistant
coach Lisa Jackson said. “Our intensity wasn’t where I’d like it to be.” Senior Whitney Wolf lost her first match of the qualifying tournament. Wolf, the No. 52-ranked player in the country, followed the loss with a victory Tuesday. After Wednesday’s play was moved to Thursday, Wolf dropped her singles qualifying consolation draw round-of-16 match Thursday, 4-6, 1-6. “It’s the toughest tournament in college tennis,” said coach Tony Minnis. “I was actually pleased with Whitney. I know she went 1-2 [in the tournament], but any win you get there is going to be good.” Wolf and her doubles partner, junior Kaitlin Burns, fell in the first round of ITA doubles play Tuesday. Then the pair lost its back draw match Thursday to finish the week for the Lady Tigers in California. “The two areas that I want to see improvement from are doubles and competitive intensity,” Minnis said. “We’re going to focus specifically on doubles [this week].” Contact Adrian Wintz at firstname.lastname@example.org

THE FOOTBALL THINKER
LSU coach Karen Bahnsen said LSU’s combined 12 birdies in the third round were crucial to its firstplace finish. Bahnsen also said the players’ competitive attitude and strong will contributed to the victory. “They have a lot of heart,” Bahnsen said. “They fought all the way to the end and made the birdies when they needed them.” The Tar Heel Invitational marks Sagstrom’s second top-20 finish in a row. Bahnsen said the tournament served as a good learning experience for Sagstrom, who has only played in three tournaments in her LSU career. BLAIR LOCKHART / The Daily Reveille

Saints rally to beat Panthers, 30-27 The Associated Press CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Drew Brees kept stepping up in the pocket, spreading the ball among his receivers and moving the New Orleans Saints downfield for the go-ahead score as the time ticked away in the fourth quarter. The veteran passer gave rookie Cam Newton a lesson in staging comebacks. Brees found Pierre Thomas wide open on the right side for a 6-yard touchdown with 50 seconds left, helping the Saints rally past the Carolina Panthers, 30-27, on Sunday for their fourth straight win. Brees threw for 359 yards and two touchdowns, including that nearly flawless final drive in which he completed 8 of 9 passes for 80 yards to take back momentum after Newton and the Panthers (1-4) had taken their first lead
earlier in the period. Making it even more impressive, the drive lasted more than six minutes and left Carolina with little time to answer. “Calm, cool, collected,” Brees said of the Saints’ mentality entering the final drive. “We’ve been here many times before, which we have. Let’s just go be us. Let’s do what we do. Nothing spectacular, but just methodical. And hey, if we end up getting a big play that scores one from 50 yards out, great. But we’re ready to march it down and convert some critical third downs and spread the ball around.” The Panthers reached midfield on their final drive before Newton’s desperation heave downfield fell incomplete on the final play, capping a game that nearly included a brawl in the first quarter after a 54-yard touchdown catch by Carolina’s Steve Smith.
Newton threw for 224 yards and two touchdowns, including the go-ahead 5-yard scoring pass to Greg Olsen for a 27-23 lead with 12:32 to play. He also scored on a sneak late in the third quarter. But when it was over, Newton and the Panthers had suffered their fourth loss by seven or fewer points. Afterward, Newton sat motionless for several minutes facing his locker, his head in his hands as he stared down at the floor. Smith sat in the chair to his right, quietly talking with the NFL’s top overall draft pick. “I mean, you’ve got standards,” Newton said. “And when you don’t meet that quota on yourself, you just ask yourself why. There’s a reason we keep losing. And I want to know the reason.” Contact The Daily Reveille’s sports staff at firstname.lastname@example.org

“With my pitching it’s nice to see how what we’ve been working on with Coach [Torina] can transfer into a game,” Mack said. “We’ve tried to work on a few things, and it’s worked pretty well for the most part.” Mack struck out all three batters during her last inning of the evening. She also drilled her first career hit during her second at bat. “I haven’t hit since high school,” Mack said. Mack said she wants to hit during the spring, but Torina is worried about her getting injured. “I’m all patched up to make sure that if I do get hit, I’ll be protected,” Mack said. “If I continue to hit well, maybe [I’ll hit during the spring], but if it’s questionable, she says it’s not worth it.” Sophomore Meghan Patterson pitched the last two innings of the first game and the first two innings of the second. Patterson had five strikeouts on the night but gave up two hits and a run
during the first game. Junior Rachele Fico pitched the last five innings and fanned 10 batters, but gave up four hits, including one home run. All of the freshmen played during the second game. The Tigers were down 2-1 with two outs in the bottom of the seventh inning with runners on second and third base. Both runners scored on an errant throw, giving the Tigers a walk-off win. “It was nice to see them fight at the end of the day like that,” Torina said. “The best part of the entire day was to show this team will continue to fight until the last out. Out of everything I learned from them today, that’s going to turn out to be the most important as this season goes on.”

Montgomery said it didn’t matter who Florida played at quarterback. “We play whatever comes at us at whatever time,” Montgomery said. “We were concerned about what formations we’re going to be running, not what certain personnel is going to be in.” That may be the case for the defensive lineman, but senior safety Brandon Taylor said he checked who was in the backfield before each snap. “That’s how we made our checks on the field,” Taylor said. “If they had one of the running backs at quarterback, we have to make a check and go to zero coverage [man to man]. If it was a regular quarterback, we would just keep our coverage on.” Taylor said LSU worked on defending the Wildcat formation in practice because they were expecting to see it Saturday, especially after the Gators used it in last year’s matchup. “When Rainey was in, we told the [defensive ends] and the outside linebacker to loosen up because we know he likes to bounce the ball [outside] a lot,” Taylor said. “Burton, he likes to stick his nose in there. Whoever was in there, that’s how we ran our defense.” The Tigers held Florida’s explosive runners to 113 yards, including only 52 yards from Rainey, who previously averaged 83 yards per game. The emphasis on stopping the run didn’t detract from LSU’s ability to defend the pass. Florida totaled 100 yards through the air, 65 of which came from a touchdown pass to sophomore receiver Andre Debose. Sophomore defensive back Tyrann Mathieu said he was able to take advantage of Florida’s inexperience at quarterback by baiting Brissett into throwing a deep ball

to Debose in the fourth quarter. Mathieu went step for step with Debose and came down with the ball in the endzone for an interception. “[Debose] only runs one route — the fly route,” Mathieu said. “So if I can bait the quarterback, make it seem like my head isn’t looking at the quarterback, I think I won that battle.” Mathieu said Florida was trying to stretch the field to take advantage of its speed at the running back position. “Those guys were just trying to get to the edge,” Mathieu said. “I know their coach wasn’t going to really come my way with the ball, so
it was really about me trying to stay focused throughout the game.” LSU coach Les Miles said he was pleased with how his defense played, except for the Gators’ lone touchdown. “I liked exactly what the defense did except for a couple of plays, certainly the long pass,” Miles said. “I liked it very much. The defensive line was constant pressure in the quarterback’s face, making line of scrimmage tackles.”

“We rushed the football at the back end of the game when we had to to take our opponent out of the game,” Miles said. “[Ware] just pounded it in there and kept pounding it in there, and I love the way he gets extra yards and basically works on a defense’s resolve to tackle him.” Entering the contest, Florida had the No. 18 rushing defense in the nation, allowing 90.4 yards per game. LSU rushed the ball 49 times for 238 yards, throwing just 14 times on the day. Senior quarterback Jordan Jefferson saw his second action of the year when he entered the game in the second quarter, completing his first throw this season to junior wide receiver Russell Shepard for 37 yards. Jefferson and fellow senior signal-caller Jarrett Lee shared reps, combining for 215 yards through the air. “Whoever needs to come in and win the football game and make a play, that’s what we’re doing right now,” said Lee, who completed his final six passes to finish 7-of-10 for 154 yards and a touchdown. “We’re about winning ball games. If it helps you make a play, if it helps the team, if it helps you win, that’s what needs to happen.” After just one reception last week against Kentucky, junior wide receiver Rueben Randle had his biggest outing of the season, reeling in four catches for 127 yards and a touchdown. “It boosted my confidence up a lot,” Randle said. “Last week I was kind of down because I didn’t get a lot of balls. Coach [Miles] told me to keep my head in it, and my chance would come this week.” The Mad Hatter reached into his bag of tricks again Saturday, pulling out a jump pass from Jefferson to senior tight end Mitch

But a taunting motion by Wing as he crossed the five-yard line drew a flag and negated the score, forcing the Tigers to settle for a field goal. Miles said the call was “absolutely correct,” and the Tigers can use the flag as a learning experience. “What a great lesson it will be to our guys to take points off to celebrate,” Miles said. “Are you kidding me?

At each stop, 20 skateboarders were invited to compete aboard the floating skate park. The top two competitors from each stop, including New Orleans, were flown down to the Crescent City for the “Big Easy Tournament” to compete for cash prizes and the title of best skateboarder. Scott Laird of St. Louis, Mo., won the competition and $2,000 in prize money. The 24-year-old said he had no set strategy for the competition. “I came out to skate and have a good time,” Laird said. The skateboarder said his victory was unexpected and congratulated the other participants. An attitude of camaraderie was evident throughout the competition, as numerous smiles and high-fives were shared
page 15 among participants. Fourth-place finisher Christian Dufrene said he expected skating on the barge to be shaky, but he was pleasantly surprised by the apparatus’ stability. The 14-year-old started skating about six years ago when he broke his dirt bike. “I was looking around my garage for something to do and found a skateboard,” Dufrene said. The skateboarding ramps and rails on the barge were donated to the city of New Orleans after the competition. “Skate parks provide teenagers with no place to go or nothing to do with an outlet and keeps them out of trouble,” said Susie Skaggs, facility supervisor of BREC Skate Park in Baton Rouge. University alumnus Daniel Barousse competed in New
Orleans on Saturday. He credited skateboarding with having a positive effect on his life. “Skateboarding is definitely the best thing I’ve ever done,” Barousse said. “It’s kept me off drugs and it’s been a great ride.” Barousse said the skateboarding scene is small in Louisiana when compared to the rest of the country, and he is happy to see it expand. Melanie Lawrence, a spectator, said she thinks more should be done for Louisiana’s young people. “New Orleans’ youth need something to do outdoors and skate boarding is a healthy option,” Lawrence said.

“I am only a reluctant ex Jersey Boy as taxes and regulation were killing me and I left the state of my birth in 2005 when Gov. Corzine was taxing accomplishers. I hope Christie realizes that sometimes we cannot pick the time, as the time picks us. All Americans need a man like Chris Christie. He is not a god, he is not the Messiah. He is just an
authentic person who speaks to the people honestly and respectfully. Moreover, as you may see in his YouTube videos, he will not cower under pressure. A rare breed in politics today. I pray he and his family accept the challenges and burdens that may befall on them with this run, as indeed, he would be a great President I am sure. To those that say Christie has no experience to be president, and we shouldn’t fall into the trap as we did with an in-experienced Obama, I see two errors with that: 1. The real possibility the other Republican candidates do not infigurate the base and attract independents to defeat Obama; Christie will do that. 2. Governor or President, both
are executive positions. Christie has produced more results than Obama, despite Obama’s greater tenure, and even Perry, while 8 years in office, has not been as much a man of the times in startling leadership results, when considering the opposition party, as Christie has.” -Anonymous

Grooming down below is a personal preference and an individual’s decision. No one should feel pressured either way by a Gabie Bacques second party, and Columnist even less so by society. Since about 1980, America decided we had to remove every strand of hair that wasn’t on our heads, and that’s not necessarily a good thing. We have hair for a reason. The pressures are especially prominent for young women in today’s culture, where a hairy body is regarded as primitive and unattractive. Since the rise of bikinis and porn, visible hair on a woman has become deviant. Mainstream shaving and waxing took charge as women imitated the hairless trends seen in pornography. But I’m sure the plethora of male porn fanatics had nothing to do with influencing their ladies to shed the strands. Though less prominent, guys also face these pressures on both ends of the down-under dilemma. A hairy body is seen as masculine, but too much is unappealing. In recent years, it has become acceptable and even desirable for men to take “extra care” of themselves, which may have previously been seen as only feminine.
Jane Pham, owner of a hair removal salon in California, says manscaping has skyrocketed to 60 percent from a mere 5 percent of his business in the past few years, according to a December 2010 article in Cosmopolitan. But we are far removed from the shaggy ‘70s culture, and the times, they are a changin’. Aside from the social benefits, hair removal may be somewhat beneficial physically. The biological purpose of “down there” hair, and most hair in general, is there to protect against bacteria. But now that we bathe regularly and wear underwear, that isn’t completely necessary anymore. Hair around the genitals, nevertheless, does reduce friction during intercourse, and chafing is anything but sexy. Another obvious consideration for a sexual partner to be groomed is for the occasion of oral sex, if one so chooses. No one wants a mouthful of hair. There’s really not much more to say about that. As long as basic precautions are taken, or if two monogamous, STD-free individuals are stroking skin, perfectly-waxed privates should prove just peachy. There are many popular ways to rid of unwanted wool, but some may pose potential health threats. While most methods aren’t harmful, per se, some can leave small tears in the skin that become susceptible to infection and extremely vulnerable to STDs. Just a heads up. Unless you’re willing to take out a second mortgage for laser hair

removal, keeping the privates constantly prickle-free is nearly impossible. Shaving often causes irritation, razor burn and ingrown hairs, not to mention the fact that the more you do it, the more you have to continue doing so. Waxing usually provides results for about two weeks, but is unfortunately too pricey and painful for most. Biologically, pubic hair is thought to help disperse pheromones produced by sweating. So if it isn’t significantly bothersome when things are low-key, it’s
probably best to keep it au naturel until playtime. No one should feel pressured to have things a particular way, based solely on what appears to be normal or mainstream. Nevertheless, titivating your troubling tresses can be beneficial to yourself as well as your partner. If you and your main squeeze want to keep things primal, more power to you. Most people are now well aware of the standard expectations, so while you may be comfortable in your “natural” state, just know others may find it
startling at first glance. While you certainly shouldn’t feel pressured to shave if you don’t want to, don’t be surprised if your partner cries wolf. Gabie Bacques is a 21-yearold animal science senior from Mandeville. Follow her on Twitter @TDR_Gbacques.

Sesame Street, Walmart partnership uneasy, shallow
For nearly 42 years, Sesame Street has captivated audiences of all ages with its mix of music, muppets and, at times, trenchant social commentary. The crown jewel of children’s public television is still going strong after an unprecedented 4,256 episodes, successfully wedding the concepts of children’s education and entertainment, a task many children’s shows have struggled with. Sometimes though, even such a revered show makes questionable decisions regarding its content. By 2005, the legendary Cookie Monster had been educated about his habit. In addition to suppressing his voracious appetites for cookies, he took the opportunity to explain to children that cookies are a “sometimes” food rather than an “anytime” food. Many cried foul at the sudden discretion the
previously-crazed Cookie Monster was showing, but the creative forces behind the show realized it was an appropriate time to address this issue with childhood obesity rapidly increasing in the United States. Chris Seemann An attempt Columnist to educate children about an important physical or mental health issue took priority over the show’s plot continuity, but it was not necessarily to the show’s detriment. In a recently aired special called “Growing Hope Against Hunger,” Sesame Street added a new character to the mix, a puppet named Lily who is, in their words, “food insecure.” This “food insecurity” is certainly a pressing issue, even for the youngest of Americans. According to the U.S. Department
of Agriculture, as many as one out of four children lack consistent access to nutritious food. Yes, the description of “food insecurity” is a little less definitive and important than the one for hunger, but when some raise concerns about promoting consistent healthy eating, they are missing the point. Giving children a frame of reference from which to understand their world is not necessarily social engineering. One does have to question the necessity of such a character on Sesame Street. Predictably, Lily experiences “food insecurity” thanks to poverty, but what then of Oscar the Grouch? There is no better sign of abject desperation and poverty than a hairy green muppet who, quite literally, lives in a trashcan. But there is another interesting revelation about Lily that gives me pause — the character is sponsored by Walmart.
I won’t criticize Walmart for causing small businesses to go belly up because many consumers in poverty count on the retail giant’s volume-assisted prices to stretch their grocery dollar farther than it might go anywhere else. That being said, Walmart is a retail outlet, and making money therefore takes precedence over almost everything else. When it comes to its employees, Walmart is certainly no friend to those in poverty. A 2004 University of California-Berkley study showed that taxpayers in California supplemented Walmart employees to the tune of some $86 million. In 2005, Walmart agreed to pay $11 million to avoid criminal charges when raids in 21 states revealed 245 alleged illegal immigrants who had been hired to do janitorial work. To add insult to injury, many of the workers were forced to work seven days
a week without overtime pay or injury compensation. Though Walmart has cleaned up its act in recent years, the retail giant still pays substandard, low wages to both part- and fulltime employees, in addition to utilizing “off the clock” labor to maintain “always low” prices. Sponsoring a “food-insecure” character on public television to assuage corporate guilt should take a backseat to improving the wages and working conditions for your employees, rather than leaving them to languish in that same poverty.

FAILURE OF DIPLOMACY
Documentary demonstrates why Guantanamo must close When Barack Obama ran for president in 2008, there were a few items on his platform which I, and many others, found attractive. Whether it was his stance on the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” his considerations towards easing up on the Cuban embargo or his Zachary Davis promise to close Columnist down Guantanamo Bay, they were positions which many people were hopeful about the future of American policy. Personally, I was ready to see the horrible policies we’ve had involving Cuba come to an end — the embargo has done nothing but further exacerbate the plight of the Cuban people, and Guantanamo Bay has served as nothing more than a place for us to bend international law. As we near the end of Obama’s first — and perhaps only — term, we can see many of these promises from his ‘08 platform have not come to fruition. While “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” may have finally ended, the rest have remained untouched. Due to recent events, it seems there may be more pressure from outside forces to hold one of these promises — the closing of Guantanamo Bay. Last week, the documentary “You Don’t Like the Truth: 4 Days Inside Guantanamo” was released in the United Kingdom and follows the story of Canadian
detainee Omar Khadr, who was taken captive when he was only 15 years old. Khadr reportedly threw a grenade that killed an American soldier during a firefight in Afghanistan in 2002. Since then, he has been under U.S. military custody, where he was tried as an adult and faced a military tribunal from 2005 to 2010. When he finally pled guilty to the charges of murder, attempted murder, conspiracy, spying and providing material support for terrorism, he received a sentence of eight years — one year of which he would spend in Guantanamo Bay before heading back to Canada. Many of you may find parts of this shady. I know I, and others like the U.N., certainly do. But the justice in trying 15-year-old Khadr as an adult is questionable at best. Ultimately, besides being the first Guantanamo detainee to be tried under President Obama, it was also the first case where a child soldier has been tried since World War II. The U.N. dictates child soldiers should be treated more as victims than perpetrators due to how they are often forced into the conflict against their will. Clearly the U.S. government hasn’t done so and has subjected Khadr to more injustice. It’s specifically the injustices he faced during one of his fourday interrogations in Guantanamo Bay, which is being focused on by the documentary. Taken from footage of the interrogation, excerpts show a sobbing Khadr
trying to get those questioning him to take a closer look at some wounds sustained while in Afghanistan, only to be flippantly dismissed. Additionally, one of Khadr’s lawyers stated he was abused by his American guards, and how he may have been coerced into admitting things he did not actually do. Really, what else would one expect when it comes to torture or “enhanced interrogation?” Hopefully, the release of this documentary will help to get
more people to push for the closing of Guantanamo Bay, so no more atrocities like this can occur. Our president has broken his repeated promises to close down what has become a mark against American justice. Because we can’t undo what was done to him, it may be too late to do the right thing for Khadr now, but perhaps we can take his situation as a clarion call for why Guantanamo has to close. Our justice system needs to be used to help prevent injustices
and not perpetuate them simply because they weren’t performed on American soil. Zachary Davis is a 20-yearold history junior from Warsaw, Poland. Follow him on Twitter @TDR_zdavis.
