LSU’s offensive burst against Ole Miss saves Tigers’ No. 5 BCS ranking Mark Clements Sports Contributor

For the first time this season, the LSU offense saved the day. In a game that felt more like a Big 12 shootout than a Southeastern Conference defensive duel, LSU’s season-high 470 yards of total offense kept the Tigers in the game while LSU’s SEC-leading defense allowed 420 yards of offense to Ole Miss — its third-highest total

allowed of the season. Despite the subpar defensive showing, LSU (10-1, 6-1) out-slugged the Rebels (4-7, 1-6) 43-36, marking the first time LSU has notched back-to-back 40-point games since the opening of the 2008 season. The Tigers’ struggles against the Rebels — who fell, 52-14, to Tennessee just a week ago — didn’t cost them too much in national perception, however.

LSU held on to its No. 5 spot in Sunday’s BCS rankings, making the Tigers the nation’s highest-ranked one-loss team. LSU also stayed firm at No. 6 in the USA Today Coaches Poll but dropped a spot, from No. 5 to No. 6, in the Associated Press rankings. The dismantling of the Tiger defense came at the hands of yet another dual threat, option-read offense that has given LSU problems all year long.

“The defense has trouble with a running quarterback, there’s no question about that,” said LSU coach Les Miles. “That quarterback was hot as a firecracker. Also, give credit to Houston Nutt and Ole Miss. They came in ready to play.” Ole Miss quarterback Jeremiah Masoli passed for 177 yards and a touchdown while rushing for 64 more yards and two scores.

An unidentified spectator sustained minor injuries after falling from the Tiger Stadium south end zone upper deck during the game against Ole Miss on Saturday. Two other spectators 12 to 15 feet below the upper end zone deck were injured when the falling man landed on them in the third quarter, said Sgt. Blake Tabor, LSU Police Department spokesman. The falling man sustained minor neck and back injuries along with cuts on his face and was hospitalized as a precaution with one of the other spectators, Tabor said. Tabor said police believe the falling man was drunk leading up to the fall. “He was cheering, and he subsequently fell over,” Tabor said. “How it happened, we can’t be sure. But we speculate it had something to do with his level of intoxication.” Tabor said none of the injured were students, and police are not releasing names at request of the injured.

Flag football tournament brings student groups together Funds for Archangel scholarship collected Rachel Warren Staff Writer

E.J. Ourso College of Business students ditched their suits and ties for more athletic attire Sunday when several organizations got together for a flag football tournament on the Parade Ground. Anne-Marie Fontenot, management junior and president of the Student Government Business College Council, said the

tournament was organized to get different organizations in the Business College together. She said participants included members of business fraternities Alpha Kappa Psi and Delta Sigma Pi, student organization Students In Free Enterprise and SG members. Fontenot said this is just one in a long list of programs the council has recently begun. “We did something with job recruiters, we did an etiquette dinner, and this is just for fun,” she said. Fontenot said the council also planned to collect donations at the tournament for a scholarship fund

in the name of recently deceased business college adviser Victoria Archangel but didn’t see many funds that day. “We’re expecting the bulk of donations to come at the memorial service,” Fontenot said. Fontenot said the council will meet soon to discuss requirements for students to receive the scholarship once it comes to fruition. Patrick O’Regan, finance junior and Business College Council vice president, said the tournament was part of an effort to publicize the Business College on campus. “We’re just trying to get the FLAG FOOTBALL, see page 11

INTERNATIONAL Mountain in Philippines spews ash Sunday, no volcanic eruption yet MANILA, Philippines (AP) — Villagers fled to safety Sunday after a volcano in the Philippines belched smoke and ash, officials said. Despite Mount Bulusan’s explosion, its sixth in recent weeks, there is no danger of an eruption, government volcanologists said. Villagers left their homes by foot and in army trucks as Bulusan shot a plume of grayish smoke and ash more than a mile high into the sky for nine minutes. The mountain calmed down soon after the ash explosion. Villagers are expected to return home from evacuation centers soon. Gates: North Korea facility could lead to creation of nuclear weapons SANTA CRUZ, Bolivia (AP) — U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates says he doesn’t believe North Korea’s new nuclear facility is part of a peaceful energy program.

He says it appears to be a uranium enrichment facility that could enable North Korea to build more nuclear weapons. North Korea recently showed the formerly secret facility to a visiting American scientist. The facility appears consistent with the North’s stated plan, but it could be used for making bombs. North Korea has also developed longer-range missiles that might deliver nuclear weapons. Taliban threatens to force NATO troops out of Afghanistan in 2014 KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — The Taliban on Sunday vowed to force the U.S.-led coalition to abandon Afghanistan before a 2014 date set by the alliance for handing over security responsibility to Afghan forces. A Taliban spokesman claimed NATO will be unable to establish a stable government by that date. During a summit this past weekend, NATO leaders agreed to begin handing off security responsibility to Afghan security forces and withdrawing troops in early 2011.

Woman accused in Domino’s Pizza scandal pleads guilty, is sentenced HICKORY, N.C. (AP) — A 32-yearold woman accused of appearing in a video at a Domino’s Pizza kitchen that was posted on the Internet last year has pleaded guilty to charges. Kristy Hammonds received a suspended sentence Friday and was placed on probation for 18 months. She cannot work at any business that prepares or serves food or beverages. In the video, Hammonds narrates as 32-year-old Michael Anthony Setzer sticks cheese in his nose and waves salami under his rear end while making a sandwich. Ex-Playboy bunny, police officer and convicted murderer dies Saturday MILWAUKEE (AP) — The prison escape of former Playboy Club bunny and police officer Laurie “Bambi” Bembenek popularized the phrase “Run Bambi Run” and seemed tailormade for the TV movie it inspired. Despite the fame garnered by

her flight, Bembenek died insisting she was innocent. Her attorney said Sunday that effort will continue. The 52-year-old died Saturday of liver failure at a hospice care center in Portland, Ore., said her longtime attorney, Mary Woehrer. Bembenek worked as a Playboy Club waitress before becoming a police officer and marrying detective Fred Schultz. She was convicted in 1982 of shooting his ex-wife, Christine Schultz, an alimony dispute.

Facebook-bashing pastor admits to threesome with wife and assistant NEPTUNE TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) — A pastor who called Facebook a “portal to infidelity” testified that he had a three-way sexual relationship with his wife and a male assistant. The Rev. Cedric Miller confirmed testimony he gave in a criminal case in 2003. The relationship had ended by that time. Miller gained national attention when he issued a Facebook edict this week. He said much of the marital counseling he has performed has concerned the website.

STATE/LOCAL New Orleans Hornets finish 5-player trade, send Stojakovic to Toronto NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The New Orleans Hornets sent Peja Stojakovic to Toronto on Saturday in exchange for guard Jarrett Jack. New Orleans also received center David Andersen and guard Marcus Banks. Stojakovic entered the season saying he could be traded because of his expiring $15.3 million contract. His odds of being traded rose when he lost his starting job this season to Marco Belinelli, currently New Orleans’ third-leading scorer, averaging 12.7 points. Stojakovic, 33, was inactive for several games earlier this season. He has played in six of the Hornets’ 11 games, averaging 7.5 points. Known for his accurate shooting from behind the 3-point line, Stojakovic has averaged 17.3 during his 12-year career. Returning from back surgery in 2007-08, he was a key contributor when the Hornets won a franchise-record 56 games.

Tailgating competition stops in BR Voting for recipes lasts until Nov. 30 Kayla DuBos Contributing Writer

The rivalry between Ole Miss and LSU brought fans together throughout this past weekend for intense tailgating — and not just for fun. Reggie’s Bar in Tigerland hosted the National Tailgating League on Friday night as it traveled through the U.S. on its College Tour. The NTL College Tour is designed to find the ultimate tailgating destination, determine which universities have the most loyal fans and crown the best team “Bag Toss King,” according to a news release. Bag Toss is a tailgating game similar to horseshoes. Contestants take turns pitching corn bags at wooden boxes to land the bag on the box or into a hole in the box. The NTL set up several cashprize bag toss tournaments, live music and food vendors. Fans from rival teams faced off for cash prizes and bragging rights. The teams that win each competition during the regular College Tour receive entry into The NTL College Tour Championship tournament on Dec. 4 in Charlotte, N.C. These teams will compete for a $10,000 prize, according to a news release. Sixty-four teams competed Friday. Results were not available by press time. Todd Hirschfeld, founder and commissioner of The National Tailgating League, expressed in the news release what The NTL has to offer for students and fans nationwide. “The NTL is bringing a whole new level of tailgating to the college environment,” Hirschfeld said. “Our events bring together students, fans and alumni who all share a passion for their team and the desire to engage in exciting pregame activities.” Before the Saturday showdown between LSU and Ole

BESO holds annual potato and rice sale All products sold are Louisiana-made Rachel Warren Staff Writer

Just in time for Thanksgiving, the Biological Engineering Student Organization is selling sweet potatoes and rice at its annual sale. Mitchell Feigley, biological engineering junior and BESO treasurer, said the sale is the University’s longest-running fundraiser. Feigley said the money earned from the sale allows members to attend Institute of Biological Engineering conferences each year. James Hollier, biological engineering senior and BESO secretary, said the group held the sale Nov. 15 to Nov. 19 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. The sale will continue today and Tuesday. Hollier said the sale will also be held Wednesday but will close at 2 p.m. The sale is set up on the corner of Highland Road and South Stadium Drive, next to the Parker Coliseum parking lot. Hollier said the organization has seen about 150 to 200 people every day at the sale. Feigley said the turnout is better than last which he ‘My family year, attributes to is buying six the organiza20-pound tion’s efforts advertise bags of to the event. He rice. They said the orlove it.’ g a n i z a t i o n ’s officers have Louann been working Johnson to better publibiological cize the sale on engineering news stations sophomore and fliers. Feigley said the sale’s organizers wanted to target local residents because he thinks they buy more potatoes and rice than students do. Louann Johnson, biological engineering sophomore and

BESO member, said several organization members’ families have helped with the event. “My family is buying six 20-pound bags of rice,” Johnson said. “They love it.” Johnson said the rice smells like popcorn because it already has butter in it. “It cooks like regular rice, but it smells so good,” Johnson said. Johnson said the plant is made of a combination of Louisiana wild rice and white rice, which gives it a unique flavor. Feigley said all the products the organization offers are made in Louisiana, right down to the decorative bags in which the rice is packaged. “The bags are all made of Louisiana cotton,” Feigley said. Feigley said he has found that customers particularly like the cloth bags because they make it easier to give the rice as holiday gifts.

No. 19 Memphis defeats LSU, 70-61


Tigers fall to No. 1 Florida Gators, 3-1

The LSU men’s basketball team gave No. 19 Memphis all they could muster, but it wasn’t enough as LSU fell, 70-61, in Tupelo, Miss., dropping its record to 2-2. LSU twice fell behind by nine points before rallying to take the lead. With 11 minutes left in the first half, LSU fell behind, 20-11, before going on an 13-3 run to take its first lead of the game. Sophomore Aaron Dotson sparked the run by nailing a 3-pointer and dishing out three of his team-high four assists. LSU went into the half with a 1-point lead. But the Tigers stumbled out of the gates in the second half, going almost five minutes before scoring their first points of the half. Memphis (4-0) used the stagnant LSU effort to build another 9-point lead, but LSU finally regained its touch. This time it was freshman guard Ralston Turner’s turn to rally the Tigers. Turner scored six of the Tigers’ 10 points during a 10-2 LSU run that put the Tigers ahead for the first time since the end of the first half. BASKETBALL, see page 7

Jefferson’s poise down the stretch of the game aided in

It was a bittersweet weekend for the No. 16 LSU volleyball team. The sweet part came Friday night when the Tigers (24-4, 154) swept South Carolina and Ole Miss fell to Kentucky, giving LSU its sixth consecutive Southeastern Conference Western Division championship. The win was also LSU’s 12th consecutive home victory. Sunday wasn’t quite as satisfying. The Tigers held senior day festivities following the match to honor their three outgoing players — outside hitter Angela Bensend, setter Brittney Johnson and outside hitter Tania Schatow. But before they could celebrate the careers of the three seniors, the top-ranked Florida Gators ruined the mood with a 3-1 victory against the Tigers. “There’s a reason they’re No. 1, and they showed it in the clutch moments of this match,” said LSU coach Fran Flory. “We had every opportunity in the second set, and I think that was the determining

Junior quarterback Jordan Jefferson (9) celebrates with fans after the Tigers’ 43-36 win against Ole Miss in Tiger Stadium on Saturday.

Jefferson has careerbest game Saturday Michael Lambert Sports Contributor

“Jor-dan Jeffer-son.” Those words were music to junior quarterback Jordan Jefferson’s ears after LSU’s victory against Ole Miss on Saturday evening. A career-high night of 254 yards on 13 of 17 passing led the LSU student section to echo the name of their quarterback, who became the game’s hero after two fourth-quarter touchdowns.

“Hearing the Tiger fans chanting my name after the game, [it was] just a sigh of relief,” Jefferson said. “It helps me be comfortable to be at home and play as well as I did.” Jefferson stole the hearts of the 92,915 fans in attendance with an impressive game-winning drive. A 7-yard touchdown run by junior running back Stevan Ridley and a successful two-point conversion by Jefferson put LSU up seven points with 44 seconds on the clock and sealed LSU’s 10th win of the season. “[Offensive coordinator Gary Crowton] gave us some great plays to run in that drive, and we just wanted to stay away from a repeat of what we did last year,” Jefferson said.

Saints top Seahawks, Brees sets all-time completions record 1,850th pass breaks Manning’s record Brett Martel The Associated Press

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Drew Brees shredded Seattle’s struggling pass defense and broke one of Archie Manning’s old team records while he was at it. Brees became the New Orleans Saints’ all-time completions leader, throwing for four touchdowns in New Orleans’ 34-19 win against the Seahawks on Sunday. Brees was 29 of 42 for 382 yards and completed his 1,850th pass as a Saint in the second quarter to break a record held by Manning since 1982. Brees hit Marques Colston and Robert Meachem twice each for touchdowns to keep the defending champion Saints (7-3) one game behind NFC South Division leader Atlanta.

Matt Hasselbeck was 32 of 44 for 366 yards, the most allowed by New Orleans’ top-ranked passing defense this season, but Seattle (5-5) had trouble getting in the end zone. The Seahawks lost two fumbles and had four drives end with field goals. Seattle came in ranked 28th in the NFL in pass defense, allowing 272.2 yards per game through the air. It didn’t help when the Seahawks’ best defensive back, Marcus Trufant, took a shot on the helmet from Saints running back Chris Ivory’s knee and left the game. Brees hit 10 different receivers while passing for more than 300 yards for the 35th time as a Saint, which extended his own franchise mark. The Saints entered the game allowing about 166 yards passing per game. Hasselbeck’s scrambling ran Saints pass rushers ragged, and the Seattle quarterback had little

trouble throwing downfield. He connected with Mike Williams six times for 109 yards, including a 68-yarder to the Saints 10, which set up the game’s first points on a field goal. Hasselbeck hit Ben Obamanu five times for 87 yards, including one 42-yard gain and a short touchdown. But settling for field goals and Marshawn Lynch’s two fumbles while trying to fight for extra yards made it tough for Seattle to keep pace. Roman Harper stripped Lynch and recovered his first turnover, while Scott Shanle got the strip and recovery on the second. The Saints played their eighth straight game without running back and punt returner Reggie Bush, who has been out since breaking a bone in his lower right leg in Week 2 at San Francisco. Bush was expected to play against his old college coach, Pete Carroll, and worked out on the field before the game, but the Saints

QB Mettenberger visits LSU Recruit still hasn’t committed to team Hunter Paniagua Sports Contributor

LSU’s victory against Ole Miss on Saturday was more than just the final home game of the season. It also marked the final chance LSU could showcase the appeal of a Saturday in Tiger Stadium to recruits in the class of 2011. The Tigers capitalized on the festive atmosphere and hosted some of the nation’s top uncommitted recruits. Former University of Georgia quarterback Zach Mettenberger headlined the list of visitors making the trip. Mettenberger has listed LSU as one of the favorites to land his servic‘Everyone es, and many was super expected him announce his impressed to commitment because of after the game. However, the the junior colatmosphere lege quarterand how back has not announced into it the yet his decision. fans were.’ Shea Dixon, managing Shea Dixon editor of TigerSportsDimanaging editor, said Mettenberger’s coach at Butler Community College would like him to visit the University of Arkansas before making a commitment. Mettenberger has thrown for 2,512 yards and 31 touchdowns this season and has led his team to the junior college national championship game Dec. 5. He has reportedly narrowed his decision down to LSU and Texas A&M, but other schools may still be in the mix. Duron Carter, son of former NFL receiver Cris Carter, also made his first official visit to LSU since leaving Ohio State following the 2008 season. Carter was ruled academically ineligible for the 2009 Rose Bowl and transferred to Coffeyville Community College. The 6-foot-3-inch wide receiver fits the mold of the tall wideout LSU has been looking to add to its recruiting class, Dixon said. LSU recruited the Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., native out of high school, but Carter chose his father’s alma mater instead. “They just wanted to see what kind of kid he was like,” Dixon said. “They want a big receiver and preferably someone that can come in right away like a [junior college] guy. I think if things check out this weekend, he’ll be a take.” A trio of uncommitted Louisiana recruits also attended this weekend’s game in Tiger Stadium for the final time as high schoolers. Wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., offensive lineman Greg Robinson and defensive lineman Mickey Johnson all made the trip. Dixon said nothing has changed with the three recruits’

interest levels. “Odell’s going to be pretty pro-LSU and still in LSU’s corner,” Dixon said. “Greg is going to be pretty torn on things down to the last minute. Mickey is going to be one of those kids that LSU will watch because he’s got some academic questions.” LSU also hosted a handful of recruits from the class of 2012 including Dutchtown safety Landon Collins, Houston quarterback Jeremiah Briscoe and Buford, Ga., offensive lineman Vadal Alexander. Dixon said Alexander, who measures 6 foot, 6 inch and 310 pounds, has potential and could possibly be a big get for LSU. “Getting him on campus for the first time this year was big,” Dixon said. “He saw a really good

game. He’s a kid that gets out there and takes a lot of visits for a kid that age. Comparatively speaking, he probably saw one of the better games of the year. Certainly that’s going to rub off.” Dixon said the lively atmosphere of LSU’s narrow victory against the Rebels could play into the minds of all the recruits in attendance. “Everyone was super impressed because of the atmosphere and how into it the fans were,” Dixon said. “The team played well. It was crazy. The crowd was crazy. Everyone I know after games like that is really pleased.” Contact Hunter Paniagua at

The Tigers had two chances to put the set away but came up empty. Although the Tigers lost the set, the energy created from the crowd helped propel them to a 2725 third-set victory. “The fans were fantastic, and it was great to have them all there,” Bensend said. “They supported us and got us through, and that’s what

avenging last season’s debacle in Oxford, Miss. Jefferson helped the Tigers regain the lead in the middle of the fourth quarter with a forward pitch to redshirt freshman running back Michael Ford, who scored on a 27-yard touchdown. “Jordan is really improving,” Ford said. “Our offense really found our groove tonight. We were executing and moving as an offense.” Jefferson cashed in on a 3-yard touchdown run in the beginning of the fourth quarter, cramming between his offensive linemen en route to the end zone. “I’ve definitely been waiting for a night like this,” Jefferson said. “I’m just glad that it finally came.” The third-year quarterback’s career at LSU began with a bang as a freshman in the 2008 Chick-fil-A Bowl, leading LSU to a 38-3 win against Georgia Tech. Since then it’s been an up-and-down roller coaster ride. “I looked at a freshman playing against Georgia Tech as a pretty significant win,” said LSU coach Les Miles. “This may well be one of those games that he’ll look back

Trent Johnson in a postgame radio interview. But LSU only shot 35 percent from the field, struggling on numerous occasions to find the net. LSU’s talented triumvirate of guards once again led the team’s scoring efforts. Dotson, Turner and freshman Andre Stringer were the only Tigers in double figures for the game. But Turner and Stringer couldn’t find their shooting touch for the majority of the game. The two freshmen combined to make only five of their

16 shots. “We ran some set stuff, where guys come off the roll open — Ralston, Andre, the ball just didn’t go down for them,” Johnson said. “The important thing is we executed and set good screens.” The Tigers didn’t get much from their starting frontcourt, with junior forwards Malcolm White and Storm Warren both fouling out of the game. Neither were effective as they were both in foul trouble for the majority of the game. “It’s frustrating for me that

got us to where we were.” The fourth set wrapped up the match with little drama, as the Gators took control and cruised to a 25-13 win. Leading the way in the match was Florida senior outside hitter Callie Rivers. Rivers — the daughter of Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers — recorded 21 kills and hit a .410 clip for the match. “Callie Rivers is the key to their team,” Flory said. “The bottom line is, as she goes, they go. So our plan was to attack Callie. I thought we were able to do that early in the match and get her

on and say, ‘Maybe that was my best game.’” The biggest difference in Jefferson’s play were his actions off the field, according to junior left guard Josh Dworaczyk. “[Jefferson] stepping up as a leader was big tonight,” Dworaczyk said. Dworaczyk said Jefferson usually lets junior cornerback Patrick Peterson and senior linebacker Kelvin Sheppard talk to the team before the game, but Jefferson let his voice be heard before Saturday’s game. “Jordan finally stepped up and spoke with us and said, ‘Let’s go out there and do it for the seniors, let’s go out there and do it for us,’” Dworaczyk said. The offensive line kept Jefferson clean, only allowing one sack. “A couple times during the game he came over to the offensive line — something he’s never done all year — and sat down and spoke with us and said, ‘Y’all keep protecting me, I’m going to keep making plays.’” Dworaczyk said. Jefferson’s target of choice Saturday night wasn’t senior wide receiver Terrence Toliver or sophomore wide receiver Rueben Randle. It was junior tight end Deangelo

Peterson. Jefferson hooked up with Peterson for 76 yards on three catches, and two of them nearly made it into the end zone. “Jordan played a great game,” Peterson said. “He came out with a chip on his shoulder, and Crowton let him be him.” Crowton gained compliments from Miles and the players on his decisions against Ole Miss. “Coach Crowton was very aggressive with the play calling,” Jefferson said. “I just had the hot hand, and with coach being aggressive and opening the play book like that [I felt] comfortable.” Jefferson has been sharing the quarterback position with junior signal caller Jarrett Lee, but Lee only had 4 yards on four attempts. The hero of Saturday’s game said he wasn’t sure how the tag-team would operate in the future. “As of right now, I can’t even speak upon that,” Jefferson said. “Jarrett Lee came in the game and managed the game the way we needed him to do.”

Conservative groups embarrass themselves by trying to demonize LSU astronomy professor I was once asked if a true conservative could be a critical thinker. While I never gave the query much thought, recent fireballs thrown from such conservative groups as have made me wonder about that very question. The sparks were ignited when Bradley Schaefer, University physics and astronomy professor, gave his usual once-per-semester lecture on global warming. A student recorded the session, edited it and released it to the masses via the Internet. Various conservative “witch hunt” groups were enraged, and the all-too-political issue of global warming was again

demonized as a liberal agenda. I sat through this same lecture twice during my astronomy classes with Schaefer in 2007. Students enter the room and sit in whichever section they feel represents their views on global warming — ranging from Andrew Robertson those who think Opinion Editor it doesn’t exist to those who want a draconian set of laws implemented to solve the issue. A certain nostalgia came over

me as I watched my old quirky professor push a class of sophomores to actually think, take a stand and debate an issue. The students’ response in the video was one of outrage and disrespect for a well-educated orator and Ph.D. from MIT. Perhaps the oddest responses to this debacle were the outcries from a vocal right against his classroom policies, seeking a return to a “teaching from the book” dynamic. While no student wants to hear his or her professor’s politics in the classroom, the global warming debate is inherently tied to politics. Anyone who has been through

Schaefer’s classes knows he plays devil’s advocate on issues, regardless of his political stance. Most importantly, not a single student has filed a complaint against Schaefer, according to Kevin Carman, dean of the College of Science. So while conservative media groups might want to paint a picture of downtrodden and oppressed students feeling the wrath of their liberal classroom leader, this is not the case. Rather, a “spirited professor,” as Carman called him, was pounced on in an attempt to demonize his efforts to extract responses from students on a relevant scientific and

Anti-vaccine movement does not protect from autism Dr. Andrew Wakefield wrote an article published in February 1998 in the British medical journal The Lancet that claimed the MMR vaccine (measles, mumps and rubella) caused autism in children. Since the study was published, vaccination rates across the developed world have dropped, and several diseases that are usually easily vaccinated are making a comeback. In the last 12 years, anti-vaccine activists have crusaded to stop vaccinating children against common childhood illnesses like measles and mumps and more serious illnesses like whooping cough and polio. The activists base their beliefs on Wakefield’s original study, despite it being discredited by countless independent scientists, disproven by numerous public health associations and officially retracted by the journal that originally published it. Wakefield’s study claimed the MMR vaccine caused autism and inflammatory bowel disease based on tests and procedures run on 12 autistic children. In May of this year, the U.K. General Medical Council struck Wakefield’s name from the medical registrar after a three-year investigation of the experimental methods employed in the 1998 study. The GMC found him guilty of unethical conduct, ranging from collecting blood samples from children at his son’s birthday party to accepting 50,000 pounds from a group looking for evidence the MMR vaccine caused autism. Further investigation has also shown

much of the original data was actually falsified. Most anti-vaccine activists believe vaccines cause autism through mercury poisoning because vaccines are commonly preserved using the mercury compound thimerosal. While thimerosal does contain mercury, a standard vaccine preserved in thimerosal contains roughly the same amount of mercury found Andrew Shockey in the average Columnist tuna sandwich, according to the New York Times. In an attempt to placate worried parents, vaccine manufacturers decreased thimerosal levels in their products. Since 2001, vaccines have contained roughly the same amount of mercury found in an infant’s daily dose of breast milk. These theories have been discredited by the National Institute of Health, the Center for Disease Control and the World Health Organization. Studies conducted by these organizations on children around the world found no increased incidence of autism in vaccinated over nonvaccinated children. Many worried parents believe vaccines are responsible for the rise of autism in the past few decades, but most public health researchers believe cases of autism only appear to be increasing because of improved diagnostic practices and the

broadening of the traditional autism diagnosis to ASD, autism spectrum disorder. A larger number of children are being diagnosed with autism not because more children have the disease but because high-functioning autistics who would previously not have been diagnosed with traditional autism are being correctly diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. I am in no way trying to diminish the incredibly difficult sacrifices the parents of autistic children endure on a daily basis or to ridicule them for their beliefs cultivated by corrupt pseudoscientists. However, the damage these beliefs can cause to innocent children is incalculable. Many autistic children are forced into dangerous and scientifically unjustified treatments for mercury poisoning, like chelation, because of the flawed beliefs of their parents and doctors. The anti-vaccine movement is also responsible for exposing children to potentially deadly diseases, which could be prevented with a simple vaccine. Many parents wrongly believe these diseases have been destroyed by modern medicine and that vaccinations against them are inconvenient and potentially harmful relics. In reality, vaccinated diseases are still prevalent abroad and can reinfect an unvaccinated population easily through international travel. Only 56 cases of measles were found in the U.K. in 1998, but last year there were 1,348 confirmed cases. Whooping cough, a disease

once responsible for thousands of infant deaths a year, has also made a comeback with the rise of the antivaccine movement. Only 48 cases of whooping cough were confirmed in Florida in 2000, but there were 497 by 2008. As more and more children are denied vaccines, these diseases will continue to grow exponentially. Anti-vaccine activists believe they are protecting their children from autism. In reality, they are

risking their children’s lives and rejecting proven research — an unethical and scientifically unsound action. Andrew Shockey is a 20-year-old biological engineering sophomore from Baton Rouge. Follow him on Twitter @TDR_Ashockey. Contact Andrew Shockey at

Lowering drinking age to 18 unwise for United States I celebrated my 20th birthday last weekend. While that age may be a significant milestone for some (it’s the end of my teenage years), to me, it’s just the last step closer to a more important milestone: turning 21 and being able to consume alcohol legally. I celebrated my 18th birthday halfway through my senior year in Europe, so I already know what I can look forward to in a year’s time. Undoubtedly, I, like many others, have questioned why the drinking age was set to 21 nationwide in the late 1980s, and there have been times I wished we were more like Europe. However, after considering our lax DUI laws and poor public transportation systems, we as a country simply aren’t ready for it to be lowered again. In European countries, the threshold for a DUI and the

punishments that go along with DUIs are much harsher than those we have here in the U.S. Across the board, only the U.K. and Ireland have the same .08 percent blood alcohol content threshold we have here. For the most part, European coun- Zachary Davis tries consider Columnist anything higher than .05 percent BAC worthy of a DUI. Some countries, like Poland and Sweden, even have a limit as low as .02 percent. The penalty for these levels is no laughing matter, either. In Poland, should you be caught behind the wheel with a BAC higher than .02 percent, you can face up to three years in prison. Higher than .05 percent gets your license banned forever and

an even longer prison sentence. That’s still .03 percent less than what is considered a DUI in all states in this country. Here in the U.S., most states usually only suspend first-time offenders, which usually constitutes a misdemeanor charge for first offenders if no one is injured. Even if our DUI laws are improved, though, we would still face another obstacle in lowering the drinking age: adequate public transport. In my hometown of Warsaw, Poland, even if we didn’t have strict DUI laws, there would really be no need for a car on most nights out. Whether it was clubbing downtown or going to a house party, we were usually able to get drunk without worrying about making sure we had a designated driver. Despite having only one subway line, the amount of buses and cheap taxis in the city made cars

unnecessary for nights out. Decent public transportation eliminated concerns about driving after drinking and winging it. Even if kids are told all the time of the dangers and consequences of getting behind the wheel while drunk, some have no other means of transport and are willing to try to drive despite their inebriated handicaps. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, 1,077 teens died in 2009 after driving drunk. I don’t have a car of my own, so it’s easy to see how much we need one in our society and just how inefficient public transport is for the most part. Unless you travel with friends, no car generally means no transportation, too. Between this and our comparatively lax DUI laws, it shouldn’t be too surprising that some people risk such dangerous driving. Until we fix these two

major issues, lowering the drinking age back to 18 would only serve to further aggravate the problem. While the age requirement now only serves as an inconvenience, lowering the age would lead more kids to drink. If we didn’t see the number of DUIs and drinking-related car fatalities rise, I would be surprised. Unless these problems get fixed, students like me will simply have to cope while they wait patiently until they’re legal on their 21st birthdays. Given how I spent my birthday night, I think most of us have learned how to cope pretty well. Zachary Davis is a 20-year-old history sophomore from Warsaw, Poland. Follow him on Twitter @TDR_zdavis.

‘Pseudo-weed’ creates dangerous ‘pseudo-prohibition’ Marijuana became illegal at the federal level with the passage of the Controlled Substances Act of 1970. The act classified marijuana as a Schedule 1 drug, deeming it to have a high potential for abuse and no justifiable medical uses. Since 1970, a lot of research has been done on the plant, and many states have changed their laws regarding marijuana’s legality. Despite its Schedule I classification, marijuana has proven itself as a treatment for AIDS, glaucoma and anorexia as well as many other conditions. And considering marijuana’s benefits, some states have decriminalized it or allowed it to be used for medical reasons. But in most states, the drug still remains subject to prohibition. With THC — the active cannabinoid in marijuana — outlawed, many people have found a way to get high with synthetic marijuana. Researchers have known how to create synthetic cannabinoids similar to THC since 1995, according to CBS News. Clemson University’s John W. Huffman published a paper describing how to create the substance. The recipe eventually fell into the hands of the public and is now sold as “incense.” Most recently, “incense” blends have hit the shelves in head shops and gas stations. However, as most already know, these blends have been sprayed with synthetic cannabinoids and aren’t to be used for their smell. They’re meant to be smoked, and they produce a high similar to that of THC. The legal pseudo-cannabinoids — HU-210, JWH-018 and

JWH-073, among others — bind with the same receptor as that of THC and “[work] on the brain in the same way [as THC],” according to Live Science. This synthetic marijuana Chris Grillot is legal in most Columnist places and has similar effects to real marijuana, so many smokers have turned to the legal option of fake weed. Because fake weed is currently legal, it has, in essence, signaled the end of marijuana prohibition. While marijuana will continue to be illegal, law enforcement will have a harder time banning fake weed. For example, the new Louisiana law passed this summer made two forms of synthetic marijuana illegal. Mojo and Spice, the two mixtures, were taken off shelves. But Potpourri, a nearly identical drug, was still up for sale. Potpourri remained legal because a new synthetic cannabinoid was used to get around the laws, proving the drug’s persistence while lawmakers fight to ban it. As one synthetic cannabinoid is outlawed, chemists will simply synthesize another to keep their products legal. While smoking “incense” may be a legal alternative to marijuana, its safety has been questioned. Anthony Scalzo, a professor of toxicology at Saint Louis University, said he has seen fake weed cause adverse effects (hallucinations and

delusions) from a THC high in at least 30 people. In another instance, Iowa teen David Rozga “freaked out” after smoking K2, a type of synthetic marijuana, then went home and killed himself. Even Huffman, the synthetic cannabinoid’s creator, doesn’t condone using it. “It’s like playing Russian roulette. You don’t know what it’s going to do to you,” Huffman said in an interview with Live Science. The use of synthetic cannabinoids has created a lot of dissent from authorities on controlled substances, so it would seem people would refrain from using them.

But the opposite is happening — “pseudo-prohibition” is being sustained through the abilities of chemists to create mock versions of THC. The only way to fight the problem is to end the actual prohibition — legalize marijuana. Marijuana legalization would give smokers a reason to turn away from unnatural chemicals created in a lab. People could smoke a naturally growing substance that’s seen by authorities like the Beckley Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse to be less harmful than alcohol or tobacco. Until then, this “pseudo-prohibition” will continue driving people

to ingest potentially toxic chemicals in an effort to get the same effect as marijuana. Lawmakers must weigh the benefits. Will they legalize a beneficial drug or allow dangerous chemicals be continually recreated to avoid prohibition? Something’s got to give.

LYNDSI LEWIS / The Daily Reveille

Junior tight end Deangelo Peterson tumbles near the end zone after a 32-yard reception in Tiger Stadium on Saturday.

OFFENSE, from page 1

Chavis gave credit to the Rebel offense, saying they stretched the Tiger defense thin and created lanes of running room. “This offense with Masoli running it is a tough offense,” Chavis said. “It challenges you, and it stretches you all over the field, and they did a good job. Some of our badness or the way we looked, you have to give Ole Miss some credit for that.” But Masoli wasn’t the only quarterback taking care of business. LSU junior quarterback Jordan Jefferson threw for a career-high 254 yards and scrambled for 45 yards, accounting for two Tiger touchdowns. Adding to Jefferson’s efforts was redshirt freshman running back Michael Ford, who scampered for 58 yards on just nine carries and had a 54-yard touchdown run shortened to a 14-yard gain early in the third quarter after an official review. “Mike did a great job, and he’s a great player,” said LSU junior running back Stevan Ridley. “He has done an exceptional job. When you get your number called you have to go out there and do something with it, and that’s what Michael did tonight.”

FLAG FOOTBALL, from page 1

word out,” O’Regan said. “And it’s fun, you know?” Ashley Bahry, accounting senior, said she participated in the tournament because she was just initiated into Delta Sigma Pi last week. Bahry said she enjoyed playing because she felt it was a way for her to bond with her new “brothers.” “It’s a good way to support

Ford’s outing marked his second-highest total of the season, behind his 86-yard game against McNeese State on Oct. 16. And while several underclassmen shined on senior day, the veterans made one final showing in front of a home crowd of 92,915. The group of seniors went undefeated at home in their final season and have compiled a 38-12 record in the past four seasons. “I’m really proud of this senior class,” Miles said. “This senior class has played a significant role in what is a series of great seasons here at LSU. They’re in position to get degrees, they’re great leaders, and I think this game is kind of typical of them. It’s a tremendous group of men.” Senior defensive tackle Drake Nevis garnered four tackles and scooped up a fumble. Fellow senior and starting middle linebacker Kelvin Sheppard also racked up 10 tackles. But the biggest contributions from the senior class may have come from the special teams. Seniors Derek Helton and Josh Jasper totaled 91 yards in their two punts, an average of 45.5 yards per punt. Jasper was also a perfect 3-for3 on field goals on the night, hitting

from 24, 25 and 31 yards, respectively. “It means a lot to me to come out and have a solid day in the last home game,” Jasper said. “I’m just real happy I got to perform to the best of my abilities.” Jasper leads the entire nation with 23 field goals made and ranks in the top 20 with an 85.2 field goal percentage. Jasper has also made 29 of 30 extra points on the year. “When you turn and you expect a guy to be steady and to hit it, we count on those 3-pointers,” Miles said. “He steps right up and drills it. We’ll miss him. I can tell you that. We’ll miss him.” With all the seniors looking back on their four-year careers at LSU, Sheppard said the one lasting memory he will have came just two weeks ago. “In Tiger Stadium for the Alabama game, I’ll never forget that one,” Sheppard said. “I could tell you every play — play by play — what happened in the Alabama game. The emotions were raised in that game … that’s my biggest memory from Tiger Stadium.”

Delta Sig,” Bahry said. Justin Sztroin, general business administration freshman, shared that sentiment. Sztroin said he was recently initiated into Alpha Kappa Psi, and he said playing football helped him grow closer to his brothers. “We’re just having loads of fun,” he said. Fontenot said she has wanted to organize events like this since she was first elected president of the council.

“We obviously want to give [students] job opportunities and things like that, but we also want them to have some fun,” she said. Fontenot said Raising Cane’s donated food for the event, and members of the winning team won $10 gift cards to the restaurant.
