Print  Quota  Reinstituted  On  Campus  By  Maxim  Alter Managing  Editor  |  Malter42@newpaltz.edu

Computers  across  campus  have  once  again  begun  requiring  students  and  faculty  to  adhere  to  a  print  quota  system. According  to  Director  of  Academic  Computer  Services  Ian  Erne,  the  new  Papercut  print  service  plat-­ form  installed  in  early  April  will  be  fully  active  by  the  upcoming  fall  semester  and  is  currently  in  a  prelimi-­ nary  phase. When  the  previous  print  quota  service  Pcounter  crashed  and  was  no  longer  compatible  with  newer  Win7  workstations,  Erne  said  there  was  a  period  when  no  quota  system  was  active.  But  without  a  system  in  place,  data  revealed  the  student  body  was  printing  at  a  rate  of  approximately  33  percent  above  the  trend  line.  For  every  $100  spent  on  printer  consumables  in  the  preceding  year,  the  college  was  now  spending  $133. “This  is  clearly  not  sustainable  for  a  college  FDXJKW LQ D ÂżVFDO YLVH ´ (UQH VDLG Âł7KLV IRUFHG XV WR roll  out  a  new  print  service  and  quota  system  which  \RX DUH QRZ IRU EHWWHU RU ZRUVH H[SHULHQFLQJ ´ Despite  Pcounter  being  a  more  familiar  program,  Erne  said  he  hopes  the  campus  community  can  get  past  the  different  interface  of  Papercut  and  enjoy  some  of  its  newer  features,  like  the  included  environmental  impact  widget. According  to  Recycling  Coordinator  and  Recy-­ cling  Club  President  Lauren  Brois,  bringing  back  the  print  quota  may  ultimately  lead  to  a  more  sustainable  future  for  the  campus. Brois  said  she  hopes  the  quota  system  will  cause Â

students  and  faculty  to  look  for  ways  to  print  more  re-­ sponsibly. “If  they  have  a  class  that  requires  them  to  print  a  lot,  not  only  will  they  think  of  ways  to  lessen  their  printing  but  it  can  also  encourage  the  professor  to  cre-­ DWH D QHZ IRUPDW RI DVVLJQLQJ ZRUN ´ VKH VDLG Âł7KHUH are  other  options  than  printing  50  page  articles,  like  e-­ UHDGHUV ERRNV >IURP WKH OLEUDU\@ DQG PRUH ´ Erne  said  bringing  back  the  print  quota  will  save  the  college  money  and  condition  people  to  become  aware  of  how  printing  in  bulk  affects  the  environment. As  a  long  time  environmentalist,  he  said  he  has  received  positive  feedback  since  installing  Papercut. “I’d  say  80  percent  of  the  feedback  concerned  ZRUNĂ€RZ DQG SULFLQJ 7KH UHPDLQLQJ SHUFHQW ZHUH PRVWO\ DQ HQYLURQPHQWDO WKDW D ER\ ´ For  graduate  student  Lorin  Montgomery,  the  re-­ WXUQ RI WKH SULQW TXRWD KDV FUHDWHG VRPH GLIÂżFXOWLHV She  said  she  takes  four  writing  intensive  courses  that  require  a  lot  of  paper. “I  can’t  take  out  all  the  books  I  have  to  read  so  , KDYH WR SULQW D ORW RI VWXII ´ VKH VDLG Âł)RU P\ SKL-­ losophy  class  alone,  a  lot  of  that  stuff  is  35  or  40  pages  ORQJ ´ According  to  Erne,  no  decision  has  been  made  as  to  whether  students  and  faculty  will  have  to  pay-­ to-­print  beyond  their  start-­up  quota  if  they  were  to  go  over.  However,  there  will  be  a  50  percent  discount  for  double-­sided  printing.

E-­mail  Server  Options  Being  Explored  By  Maxim  Alter Managing  Editor  |  Malter42@newpaltz.edu

E-­mail  services  offered  by  either  Google  or  Microsoft  may  soon  replace  the  NPMail  system  used  by  the  New  Paltz  campus  community.  According  to  Computer  Services  Assistant  Vice  Presi-­ dent  of  Technology  Jon  Lewit,  the  college  plans  to  adopt  either  Gmail  or  Hotmail  as  a  replacement  for  the  e-­mail  system  cur-­ rently  provided  by  CommunigatePro.  If  the  switch  is  made,  Lewit  said  students  and  faculty  will  have  10  times  more  storage  than  they  have  now,  as  well  as  ba-­ sic  word  processing,  spreadsheet  applications,  a  calendar  and  many  other  tools. “Our  current  e-­mail  system  is  just  e-­mail  and  it  has  a  VRPHZKDW GDWHG ZHE LQWHUIDFH ´ /HZLW VDLG Âł/RWV RI QHZ DQG current  students  already  have  Gmail  or  Hotmail  accounts,  so  IRU PDQ\ WKHUH ZLOO EH QRWKLQJ QHZ WR OHDUQ ´ Based  on  alternate  e-­mail  addresses  provided  by  students,  Lewit  said  roughly  2,500  students  are  simultaneously  using  Gmail  with  their  NPMail  accounts,  while  approximately  1,500  are  using  Hotmail. Â

Second-­year  education  major  Danielle  Zanata  said  she  prefers  her  Gmail  account  over  the  NPMail  service  because  all  of  her  e-­mails  can  be  easily  sent  to  her  smartphone.  â€œI  have  my  New  Paltz  e-­mail  forwarded  to  my  Gmail,  so  EDVLFDOO\ , QHYHU HYHU JR RQ P\ 1HZ 3DOW] DFFRXQW ´ VKH VDLG Âł*PDLO LV VXSHU HDV\ WR XVH ´ Lewit  said  once  a  decision  is  made,  members  of  Computer  Services  will  meet  with  the  chosen  vendor  to  work  out  details  of  support,  training  and  the  migration  process.  While  nothing  is  problem  free,  Lewit  said  the  transition  to  a  new  service  should  occur  without  any  major  disruptions  and  people  will  be  allowed  to  keep  their  New  Paltz  accounts.  â€œMoving  over  the  contact  list  has  sometimes  had  some  SUREOHPV ´ /HZLW VDLG Âł7KH WRROV DQG WHFKQLTXHV DYDLODEOH WR PRYH WKLQJV RYHU NHHS LPSURYLQJ :H ZLOO ÂżJXUH WKLQJV RXW ZKHQ ZH JHW WKHUH ´ Lewit  said  he  had  a  small  Blackboard  discussion  in  or-­ der  to  learn  the  opinions  of  faculty  and  staff  members.  He  has  also  spoken  with  representatives  from  other  SUNY  colleges  that  have  successfully  made  the  transition  to  an  external  e-­mail  service.

Since  both  Gmail  and  Hotmail  are  off-­campus  systems,  Lewit  said  there  have  been  concerns  raised  over  privacy  issues.  However,  Lewit  said  privacy  will  remain  strong  because  the  college  will  contractually  purchase  a  commercial  plan  rath-­ er  than  the  free  service  many  are  used  to.

Changes to the Student Evaluation of Instruction (SEI) forms were voted on and approved at a faculty meeting on April 15, including one that would put SEIs online through my.newpaltz.edu. “Online proposals have been in use for summer courses,” said Assistant Professor of Communication and Media Jerry Persaud. “It’s not something foreign. It’s been used in some courses, including my courses. It is also used intermittently by business faculty.” The two proposals voted on included improving the new survey instrument, which passed 36 to nine. The second included an action approving SEIs going online, which passed 38 to 12. Both changes will go into ef-­ fect for fall 2011. Some students responded favorably to the SEIs going online. “I am all for the SEIs being in an online format,” said student Sen. Megan Grieco. “It will save the school money, it’s more environ-­ mentally friendly by not printing that much paper, it saves time we’ve wasted in class and LW¶V UHDOO\ HDV\ WR ¿OO RXW RQOLQH <RX¶UH QRW VLW-­ ting there waiting for you’re No. 2 pencil and WU\LQJ WR ¿OO RXW WKH EXEEOHV DOO SHUIHFWO\ ´ Persaud also mentioned that moving to an SEI online format is due in part to a cost saving measure. At a senate meeting on April 5, student Sen. Ayanna Thomas, said that by moving the SEIs it could save New Paltz $30,000. According to Persaud, the summer school sessions, other departments at New Paltz and other SUNYs are using the online SEI format already.

online, but he wanted to make it clear that the committee responded to the change, but that it’s not where it originated. Persaud also said that although the busi-­ ness school already “intermittenly” utilizes online SEIs, they are in no way saying that this is how things should be done. Professors still have the option, if they so choose, to im-­ plement this format. There will also be “some kind of mecha-­ nism” put into place that will tell students to ¿OO RXW WKHLU 6(,V EHIRUH WKH\ FDQ DFFHVV WKHLU

New Board Encourages Liberal Arts

Staff Writer | Kday29@newpaltz.edu

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences has FUHDWHG DQ DGYLVRU\ ERDUG RI¿FLDOV VDLG ZDV GH-­ signed to highlight the importance of a liberal arts education and help current students achieve their career aspirations. “We do ourselves a disservice if we fail to spread the word about the valuable skills that lib-­ eral arts provides,”said James Schiffer, dean of the College of Liberal arts and Sciences. Schiffer also said he hopes to provide students with internship and employment opportunities. The goals of the advisory board are to help

provide funding for various scholastic endeavors such as experimental course offerings, stipends for summer internships, faculty awards and guest lectures. The board is made up of 12 members, 11 of which are SUNY New Paltz alumni. One of the members, Bruce Hottum, whose education at New Paltz took him to New York University and then to Dental School said he is concerned with the current job market because more and more students are graduating and going to graduate school because they can’t get a job in WKHLU ¿HOG “[Students] might as well go to grad school to

shirk real life,” he said. He hopes to give guidance to current students by giving them the perspective of a successful graduate. Onnika Jervis graduated in 1993 and has stayed involved with SUNY New Paltz over a number of years. She has noticed that students have not taken advantage of the alumni networks at SUNY New Paltz.

The 13 candidates running for New Paltz’s village board all agree that the best kind of government is one that is open and available. “Our villagers deserve to know everything that is go-­ ing on,” said trustee candidate Amy Cohen. “I don’t need secrets. If something comes up that’s a secret, that’s a prob-­ lem.” Transparency on the village board was just one of many LVVXHV GLVFXVVHG DW 'H\R +DOO RQ 0RQGD\ GXULQJ WKH ¿QDO meeting of candidates before Election Day on May 3. Panelists included mayoral hopefuls Jonathan Cohen, Jean Gallucci, Pete Healey and former mayor Jason West, as well as trustee candidates Ariana Basco, Rick Bunt, Amy Cohen, Emily Crocetti, Stewart Glenn, Sally Rhoads, David Kip Ruger, Martin Sherow and Shari Osborn. Running alongside Cohen on the Groovy Blueberry ticket, trustee candidate Crocetti said she would strive to update the village’s website if elected to a four-­year seat. By setting up open lines of communication between village leaders and residents, Crocetti said transparency in government could be improved. “There are opportunities to allow people to communi-­ cate with the village board and the mayor without having to come to a village board meeting,” Crocetti said. “We can set

up message boards…so that everybody could know what’s on everybody else’s mind.” Many candidates also agreed that New Paltz is in dire need of repairs to the existing infrastructure. Trustee candidate Sherow said he was “inadvertently inspired” to improve the village’s infrastructure when he tripped over a cracked piece of sidewalk. “Infrastructure is a priority,” Sherow said. “It needs to be taken care of immediately and repairs need to start im-­ mediately. You should never go through your daily lives be-­ ing impassioned by infrastructure. That’s the board’s job.” Mayoral candidate Jean Gallucci agreed that while in-­ frastructure improvements are very expensive, her passion is to improve the village’s water and sewer systems. While serving as mayor, West said his administration provided over $4 million in infrastructure improvement to the village. He said part of that amount was inherited from past mayor Tom Nyquist, while another portion was passed on to current mayor Terry Dungan. “[We] laid new sewer lines and new water lines,” West said. “While we still do have sewage running through the streets occasionally and we still are under a consent order from Riverkeeper, the problem is much less.” Groovy Blueberry Co-­owner Jonathan Cohen said he would forgo his four-­year mayoral salary of roughly $100,000 if elected so the village could pay for future de-­

velopments and improvements. “If the village trustees decide to be a volunteer, that’s another $120,000,” Cohen said. “That’s $220,000 richer our village will be. What can we do with a quarter of a million dollars? I can think a lot for our children, that’s for sure.” 7UXVWHH FDQGLGDWH %XQW VDLG WKH ¿VFDO LVVXHV VXUURXQG-­ ing New Paltz inspired him to run for a position on the board and over the last 10 years he has seen village taxes double.

Dudley  to  Discuss  Economy By  Cat  Tacopina Copy  Editor  |  Ctacopina97@newpaltz.edu

SUNY  New  Paltz  will  welcome  William  Dudley,  the  president  and  CEO  of  the  Federal  Reserve  Bank  of  New  York,  to  campus  on  Thursday,  May  19.  During  his  visit,  Dudley  will  be  giving  a  speech  entitled,  â€œThe  US  Economic  Outlook  -­  Where  Are  We  Headed.â€?  In  his  speech,  Dudley  will  address  the  current  and  future  state  of  both  the  national  and  regional  economies. The  event  is  being  sponsored  by  the  Center  for  Research  Regional  Education  and  Outreach  (CRREO).  CRREO  has  teamed  up  with  the  School  of  Business,  the  Department  of  Economics  and  the  Hudson  Valley  Pattern  for  Progress  and  the  Federal  Reserve  Board.  CRREO  Director  Gerald  Benjamin  expressed  his  excitement  for  Dudley’s  trip  to  campus. “Mr.  Dudley  is  a  big  part  of  the  Federal  Bank  system,â€?  said  Benjamin.  â€œâ€ŚHe’s  coming  to  talk  about  the  bank  and  give  his  assessment  on  the  regional  economy.  We  have  a  long-­standing  business  relationship  with  the  bank  and  we  have  hosted  events  with  them  before.â€? Previously,  Dudley  served  as  chief  economist  for  Goldman  Sachs  and  oversaw  the  department  that  was  in  charge  of  buying  and  selling  government  securities.  Dudley  was  appointed  to  the  position  of  president  in  2009.  Benjamin  said  that  Dudley  is  someone  held  in  high  regards  on  both  the  national  and  international  levels.  Benjamin  also  said Â

that  Dudley  would  not  be  discussing  issues  that  would  pertain  to  the  budget  crisis  that  the  school  is  facing. “He’s  a  person  of  national  and  international  prominence  in  policy  making,â€?  said  Benjamin.  â€œHis  current  position  was...held  by  the  secretary  of  the  treasury  of  the  United  States,  so  his  perspective  is  on  the  national  and  international  economies.  Of  course  the  condition  of  those  economies‌bears  an  indirect  relationship  on  the  regional  economy,  but  school  budget  issues  will  not  be  brought  up.â€? The  speech  will  be  held  on  May  19,  ZKLFK LV WKH ODVW GD\ RI ÂżQDO H[DPLQDWLRQV for  students.  This  raises  concern  from  some  students,  who  are  deterred  by  the  fact  that  such  a  prominent  speaker  will  be  coming  to  campus  not  only  on  the  last  day  of  the  semester,  but  at  a  time  when  their  main  focus  is  returning  home  for  the  summer. Âł,WÂśV GLVDSSRLQWLQJ ´ VDLG ÂżUVW \HDU student  Rosalie  Rodriguez.  â€œThis  is  the  president  of  the  Federal  Reserve  for  the  state  and  what  he  has  to  say  is  important  for  us.  I  might  have  gone  if  it  were  earlier,  but  at  that  time  all  I’ll  be  thinking  about  is  going  home  for  the  summer.â€? Benjamin  said  CRREO  understands  the  concern,  but  valued  Dudley’s  SUHVHQFH ÂżUVW DQG IRUHPRVW “Well,  I  understand  that  concern  and  I  was  mindful  of  it,  but  we  had  to  book  it  when  the  president  of  a  bank  like  Mr.  Dudley  could  come  and  he  only  had  a  limited  number  of  dates  so  our  choice  was  to  have  him  here  on  that  date  as  opposed  to  not  having  him  here Â

at  all,â€?  said  Benjamin.  â€œHaving  him  here  is  a  service  to  the  campus  and  regional  community.â€? Despite  the  fact  that  the  late  date  may  limit  student  turn-­out,  Benjamin  said  that  he  thinks  many  members  of  the  community  will  go  and  that  students  should  still  come  out  for  the  â€œrareâ€?  event. “I  hope  and  expect  students  to  come,  we’re  reserving  seats  for  students  at  no Â

cost.  Even  though  we  expect  a  lot  of  community  people  to  come,  we’re  saving  seats  for  students,â€?  said  Benjamin.  â€œWe  encourage  students  to  come  because  this  is  a  rare  opportunity  to  meet  someone  of  this  prominence.â€? The  event  will  be  held  in  the  Student  Union  Multipurpose  room  and  registration  for  the  event  will  begin  at  8  a.m.  on  Thursday,  May  19. Â

SUNY NEW PALTZ PROFESSOR LOOKS BACK ON HIS TEACHING CAREER By  Willem  Donahue Contributing  Writer  |  N02061699@newpaltz.edu

After  40  years,  Professor  Peter  D.G.  Brown  has  taken  a  step  back  to  review  his  career  and   share  it  with  the  students  he’s  dedicated  his  life  to.  His  exhibit,  â€œWhat  Remains:  40  Years  of  Teaching,  Scholarship  &  Service  at  SUNY  New  Paltz,  1971-­2011â€?  opened  at  the  Sojourner  Truth  Library  on  April  1.  It  is  compiled  of  several  en-­ cased  exhibits,  each  chronicling  a  different  area  where  Brown  extended  his  inspired  reach.  â€œI’d  consider  it  a  little  retrospective  look  on  40  years  of  teaching  and  research,â€?  said  Brown.  He  may  have  been  a  Professor  of  German  Studies,  but  Brown  made  his  presence  known  throughout  the  New  Paltz  community.  The  ex-­ hibit  lines  the  entirety  of  the  Library’s  foyer,  glass  cases  full  of  books,  headlines,  clippings  and  awards.   At  the  head  of  the  exhibit  stands  a  few  of  his  most  distinguished  honors,  including  one  from  the  German  president  Roman  Herzog  in  1999  for  his  service  in  fostering  German-­American  rela-­ tions  and  for  his  work  as  an  editor.  His  series   in-­ cluded  â€œStudies  in  Modern  German  Literature,â€?  â€œStudies  in  Jewish  German  Historyâ€?  and  â€œWom-­ en  in  German  Literature.â€?  He  began  editing  in  1985,  his  work  eventually  spanning  120  volumes. “Editing  helped  me  keep  up  with  the  schol-­ DUVKLS LQ P\ ÂżHOG ´ VDLG %URZQ Âł6WXGHQWV WKHVH days  don’t  appreciate  books,  the  physicality,  the  layout  and  cover,  books  are  losing  out  to  Google  and  Wikipedia.â€?

STUDENTS DISCUSS ONE-OF-A-KIND COURSES AND UNIQUE CLASS EXPERIENCES THIS SEMESTER By Danielle Mattina Contributing Writer | Dmattina06@newpaltz.edu

With registration right around the corner, SUNY New Paltz students chime in about some of their favorite classes and professors. Laura Cerrone, a second-­year student at SUNY New Paltz, spoke highly of a course called Media and Society. In this class, students learn how media such as television, radio and the Internet impact the world. The reason she enjoyed this class so much was because of Professor Jerry Persaud. According to Persaud, he teaches in a way where students know ex-­ actly what is expected of them from day one. He said it’s not an old boring textbook in Persaud’s class;; instead he makes the textbook come alive. Persaud frequently compares You-­ Tube videos with the textbook. There is a lot of discussion and interactive participation, said Persaud.

An activity Persaud does in class is what he likes to call “re-­readings.” This involves re-­interpreting the text in fun ways. They re-­read “The Three Little Pigs” in terms of capitalism and also watched a YouTube video on “Beverly Hills Chihuahua” that was about Mexicans instead of dogs. “We just don’t read out of the textbook,” said Persaud. “We use the textbook to relate to society and events around us. Students like that.” Persaud makes it known that stu-­ GHQWV DUH KXPDQ EHLQJV ¿UVW +H LV QRW just a professor to his students, but a colleague. He listens to feedback from his students and encourages it. It’s all about respect for Persaud. “It is our class,” said Persaud. “Not my class.” But there are other teachers at SUNY New Paltz who have received praise as well. Professor Larry Carr is also high-­ ly regarded. Carolyn Quimby, a cre-­

ative writing major took Carr’s cre-­ ative writing class. “Professor Carr was the one pro-­ fessor who really made me realize I knew I wanted to be a creative writ-­ ing major,” said Quimby. Carr said she likes an active class. There are discussions, peer reviews, reading aloud, etc. He teaches about all aspects of writing. Carr wants students to become better writers be-­ cause it will help them in the future. Carr gives constructive criticism and will never destroy a piece of writing. He said he allows students to give feedback also. “I try to create an atmosphere where students feel safe,” said Carr. “So that they can bring in their writ-­ ing, show it and feel nurtured.” These professors teach English. However, some students also recom-­ mend foreign language courses. Shannon Pope, an undeclared second-­year student, did just that.

She enrolled in Elementary Spanish I with Professor Mary Stevens and re-­ ally enjoyed the class. Stevens does many activities with her class. She has her students act out new vocabulary and play Si-­ mon Says. She also has them act out encounters in Spanish that would happen in everyday life, according to Stevens. Stevens likes to incorporate the Spanish culture into her class, teach-­ ing things such as salsa dancing. This makes the students connect with the language. Stevens said she wants to give her students something worth-­ while. She doesn’t teach the whole class in Spanish. Rather she sees what the class can understand so they don’t get intimidated, according to Stevens. “Fear gets in the way of learn-­ ing,” said Stevens. “I give them as much as they can handle while still feeling safe and comfortable.”

The Last Good Book I Read: “Bossy Pants” by Tina Fey By Katherine Speller

Copy Editor | Katherine.speller79@newpaltz.edu

While perusing for something worth reading dur-­ ing the recent rainy days, I found Tina Fey’s “Bossy-­ pants.” I proceeded to devour this book for the next two hours. I ignored my family, friends, e-­mails and obliga-­ tions to read, stopping only occasionally to laugh out loud and yell to the other people in my house about how much I adored Tina and how badly I wanted to be her. I call this experience the “Fey-­gasm.” The book is a memoir written in her hysterical style and voice. When I say you’re going to laugh out loud, I mean you’re going to laugh out loud, clutch the book to your chest and let out a hearty, guttural and unattractive guffaw. It’ll be great;; just don’t read it in public. I wasn’t sold on the book until I read the chapter called “A Supposedly Fun Thing I‘ll Never Do Again” about her cruise-­ship honeymoon. The title pays hom-­ age to the David Foster Wallace essay of the same name about his time on a cruise ship. To have a Tina Fey chapter with a David Foster Wallace reference was

enough to make my heart beat wildly and my internal organs swell. Fey talks about her husband and how, if your cruise ship is about to go down, the performers and waiters are the ones in charge of your lives in the lifeboats. They can shoot you if you’re disruptive or PDNH WKLQJV GLI¿FXOW LQ DFFRUGDQFH WR QDXWLFDO ODZ , kid you not. Another golden moment is when Fey addresses her haters. Plenty of people go on the internet daily and leave highly negative comments about her. According to the book, one commenter wrote that she was “an ugly, pear-­shaped, bitchy, overrated troll,” to which she replied that “to say [she is] an overrated troll, when you have never even seen [her] guard a bridge, is patently unfair” and then she calls the commenter’s penis small. She’s wonderful. What Tina Fey does best is not forgetting what a marvel her being in the business of comedy is. She LV D PRGHUQ IHPLQLVW ZKR XQGHUVWDQGV KRZ GLI¿FXOW it is to be a woman and become a big name in com-­ edy. She knows she came in as the underdog but, somehow, with her hard work and talent, she ended up on top.

The  New  Paltz  Oracle Hello!  My  name  is  Pamela  Vivanco.  Each  week  I  will  present  one  basic  sustainable  practice.  This  column  will  re-­ emphasize  the  sustainable  efforts  that  have  been  made  by  many  members  of  the  New  Paltz  community.  With  the  help  of  environmentally-­friendly  experts,  I  hope  to  provide  tips  to  become  better  friends  with  our  Earth.

Sustainable solution No. 5: Compost

The  basic  idea  of  composting  is  giving  back  to  the  Earth  by  using  leaves,  vegetables  and  food  scraps.  According  to  the  Environmen-­ tal  Protection  Agency,  compost  also  en-­ riches  soil  and  helps  clean  up  contaminated  soil.  How  to  Compost: 1.  Before  anything,  you  must  choose  a  com-­ post  bin.  Although  there  are  a  few  more  ways  to  compost,  for  beginners  I  think  us-­ ing  a  plastic  bin  is  the  most  affordable  and  accessible  option.   (You  can  get  a  bin  that  is  made  from  100  percent  recycled  plastic). 2. After  you  choose  a  bin,  choose  a  location.  Placing  the  bin  over  bare  soil  outside  is  an  option. 3.  Once  the  bin  is  where  you  want  it  to  be,  begin  to  add  things! Â

NASSAU

Below  are  some  steps  on  composting  as  stated  by  the  Beginner’s  Guide  to  Mak-­ ing  Great  Compost  1.  Start  with  a  4-­inch  layer  of  brush,  twigs,  hay  or  straw  at  the  bottom  of  the  bin.  2. Then  add  a  4-­inch  layer  of  brown  mate-­ ULDO WKHQ D WKLQ OD\HU RI ÂżQLVKHG FRPSRVW RU good  garden  soil.  3.  Then  add  a  4-­inch  layer  of  green  material  topped  with  a  thin  layer  of  compost  or  soil.  Moisten  each  layer  by  misting  it  lightly  with  a  garden  hose.  4.  Keep  adding  materials  in  alternating  lay-­ ers  of  greens  and  browns  until  the  bin  is  full. 5.  Once  you  have  a  full  bin  you  can  turn  the  pile  every  14  days  or  so.  The  more  you  turn  WKH SLOH WKH IDVWHU \RX ZLOO KDYH ÂżQLVKHG composting!

65-YEAR-OLD UNDERGRADUATE COMES TO SUNY NEW PALTZ TO STUDY MUSIC AND MATH By  Zan  Strumfeld A&E  Editor  |  Sstrumfeld34@newpaltz.edu

Turner  said  he  is  more  than  grateful  to  be  back  in  school  to  perfect  his  musical  craft  since  7  years  old.  Born  in  Seattle,  Wash.,  Turner  dropped  out  of  high  school  to  become  a  musician.  After  graduating  from  techni-­ cal  school,  he  decided  to  move  in  with  his  uncle  in  Brooklyn  Heights  in  the  spring  of  1964.  After  his  uncle  kicked  him  out  for  drinking  his  beer  and  leaving  dirty  dishes  in  the  sink,  Turner  started  playing  bass  in  an  acid-­rock  band  called  The  peepL.  When  the  band  split  up,  Turner  began  working  at  the  \HDU ROG 5RE 7XUQHU LV FXUUHQWO\ WULSOH PDMRULQJ DW 681< 1HZ 3DOW] PHOTO  BY  LAURA  LUENGAS Fillmore  East  for  two  years.  ³7KH\ÂśOO ORRN DW D \HDU ROG DQG VD\ Âľ:KDW DUH \RX Then  Turner  decided  to  follow  the  music  by  heading  up-­ and  then  they  came  out  with  Jesus  Christ  Superstar.  So  I  de-­ cided  to  keep  it  a  symphony  with  a  chorus.  There’s  a  libretto  doing  here?  You’re  going  back  to  school  because  you’re  not  state. “I  came  up  for  Woodstock  Festival  and  stayed  because  I  and  vocal  part  which  gives  precepts  that  Christ  put  forth  in  successful  in  life  yet?  So  you’re  a  loser,  basically,’â€?  Turner  the  New  Testament,â€?  Turner  said.  said. loved  it  so  much,â€?  he  said. +RZHYHU 7XUQHU LV VWLOO LQ WKH SURFHVV RI ÂżQLVKLQJ WKH $OWKRXJK 7XUQHU KDV WKH FKRSV WR WHDFK PXVLF WKDW ÂżHOG In  Woodstock,  Turner  started  playing  in  a  number  of  bands,  including  playing  lead/rhythm  guitar  for  Falling  SLHFH +H KDV FRPSOHWHG WKH ÂżUVW PRYHPHQW DQG LV FXUUHQWO\ is  even  more  competitive.  working  on  the  second. “By  comparison  maybe  I’m  not  a  loser,  but  they’re  gon-­ Rock.  Turner  also  got  asked  to  play  bass  in  many  bands.  After  transferring  to  SUNY  New  Paltz  in  the  fall  of  na  look  at  the  kid  fresh  out  of  college  with  their  expertise  all  â€œI  stupidly  got  talked  into  playing  bass  because  I  had  been  a  bass  player  in  the  city,â€?  he  said.  â€œThen  I  became  the  2009,  music  professor  Susan  Seligman  convinced  Turner  to  ready  to  go  and  at  least  30  years  to  invest.  They’re  gonna  look  at  me  and  maybe  my  expertise  will  count  for  something  side  man  in  every  band  that  came  down  the  pike.  I  neglect-­ WDNH RQ D SHUIRUPDQFH PDMRU “I’m  basically  getting  better  for  what  I  already  know,â€?  EXW , RQO\ KDYH ÂżYH \HDUV PD\EH PD[ WR FRQWULEXWH ´ ed  my  own  music  for  years.  I  wrote  on  the  side  but  I  never  he  said.  â€œBut  the  truth  of  the  matter  is  I’m  learning  so  much  Turner  said.  â€œWho  are  they  gonna  pick?  They’re  gonna  pick  performed  my  music,  so  I’m  a  very  frustrated  singer/song-­ about  tone.  Susan  Seligman  is  a  really  good  teacher.  I  really  WKH NLGV 6R , ÂżJXUHG WKH RQO\ FDUHHU WKDW , FRXOG VXFFHVV-­ writer.â€? fully  get  now  is  math.â€?

Tapestry Ensemble Weaves a Vocal Story BOSTON-BASED WOMEN’S VOCAL GROUP PERFORM “THE WHITE ROOSTERâ€? By  Simone  Morrow Contributing  Writer  |  N  01873686@newpaltz.edu

THE DOCTOR IS IN:

KATIE’S “DOCTOR WHOâ€? CONFIDENTIAL By  Katherine  Speller Copy  Editor  |  Katherine.speller79@newpaltz.edu

EPISODE 1: “THE IMPOSSIBLE ASTRONAUTâ€? I  suppose  a  spoiler  alert  would  be  in  order,  yeah?   I  spent  my  Saturday  night  cowering  in  the  fetal  position,  screaming  expletives  at  my  televi-­ sion  screen  and  cursing  Steven  Moffat.  This  is   typical  behavior  in  the  Speller  household  once  â€œDoctor  Whoâ€?  returns.  The  season  opener  pre-­ miered  on  BBC  America  this  past  weekend.   So,  if  you’ve  heard  people  talk  about  â€œDoc-­ tor  Whoâ€?  and  you’re  still  unsure  of  what  they’re  talking  about,  go  to  a  wiki  or  something.  I’ve  spent  several  days  trying  to  sum  it  up  in  a  brief  and  non-­boring  way  and  I’m  simply  unable  to.  The  show  is  about  the  Doctor,  a  900-­year-­old  alien  who  travels  the  universe  in  a  blue  box  that’s  actually  a  time  machine.  You  with  me? Yeah,  the  idea  sounds  a  little  rough  when  you  put  it  in  the  simplest  terms,  but  it  seems  that,  in  order  to  explain  the  show,  one  has  to  leave  the  room  for  countless  parentheticals,  elaborations  and  frantically  waving  hands  to  make  sense  of  things.

The  season  opener  was  written  and  produced  by  Steven  Moffat,  a  lifelong  fan,  who  took  the  helm  of  the  series  last  year.   Moffat  tends  to  weave  his  stories  WKLFN \RXÂśOO Âż QG WUDFHV RI WKLV RSHQHU in  episodes  as  far  back  as  the  second  season.  He  threw  the  audience  for  a  loop  in  making  viewers  believe  that  the  end  of  last  season  was  a  happy  one.  Where  we  left  off,  the  Doctor’s  companions  Amy  and  Rory  (Played  by  Karen  Gillan  and  Arthur  Darvill)  were  married,  the  Doctor  was  brought  back  into  existence  using  the  power  of  Amy’s  memory  and  things  were  happy  and  wonderful. “The  Impossible  Astronautâ€?  begins  with  three  Tardis  blue  envelopes  numbered  two,  three  and  four  being  sent  out.  Each  note  is  unsigned,  but  contains  a  map  and  a  date  asking  the  recipient  to  show  up  in  the  Midwest  United  States.  Upon  arriv-­ al,  Amy  and  Rory  (who  received  envelope  number  two)  met  up  with  River  Song,  the  mysterious  time  traveler  (played  by  Alex  Kingston)  who  received  envelope  three  and  knows  the  Doctor  from  the  future.  It’s  time  travel  and  it’s  confusing,  okay? :KHQ WKH\ Âż QDOO\ FDWFK XS ZLWK WKH 'RFWRU he  admits  to  sending  the  envelopes  and  the  group  enjoys  a  picnic  together  and  it’s  all  really  ador-­ able  until  the  Doctor  is  killed  by  someone  in  an Â

astronaut  suit.  Yeah,  shot  twice:  once  to  knock  him  down  and  start  his  regeneration  process  and  a  second  time  to  actually  kill  him.  I  won’t  go  on  about  how  I  think  the  image  of  the  1960s  spaceman  killing  the  doctor  comments  RQ WKH ZD\ VFLHQWLÂż F DGYDQFHPHQWV FDQ LPSDFW DQG KDUP WKH VFLHQFH Âż FWLRQ FRPPXQLW\ DQG VWLĂ€ H WKH imagination   â€”  but  it’s  an  awesome  image. There  we  are,  10  minutes  into  the  episode  and  everything  seems  to  be  fucked,  royally.  The  title  character  is  dead  and  cremated  in  a  Viking  funeral  and  everyone  is  suspecting  he  knew  what  was  coming.  A  new  character  is  introduced.  Canton  Delaware  III  (played  by  character  actor  Mark  Sheppard),  shows  up  at  the  time  of  the  Doctor’s  death  with  the  fourth  envelope  and  helps  with  the  funeral  matters.  Amy,  Rory  and  River  head  back  to  a  diner  to  drown  their  sorrows  and  they  run  into  yet  another  person  invited  to  the  Doctor’s  self-­ planned  wake:  The  Doctor. At  the  diner,  a  much  younger  and  very  much  alive  Doctor  arrives,  completely  oblivious  to  the  fact  that  his  friends  had  just  witnessed  his  death  (isn’t  time  travel  awful  for  your  brain?).  The  team  reunites  and  the  companions  are  shaken,  but  they  don’t  tell  the  Doctor  what  they  witnessed  because  there’s  some  kind  of  intergalactic  â€œFight  Clubâ€?-­ style  rule  about  not  telling  a  person  how  they  die  (much  like  how  the  Doctor  knows  how  River  dies,  but  can’t  tell  her).  They  proceed  to  follow  the  Doctor  back  to  Nixon-­era  United  States,  investi-­ gating  some  mysterious  phone  calls  the  infamous  president  was  receiving.  This  is  where  we’re  introduced  to  the  newest  monster   â€”  one  of  the  scariest  Moffat  has  come  up  with  in  a  while  â€”  called  The  Silence.  They  look  like  Roswell-­style  aliens  (with  their  strange  shaped  heads)  they  wear  suits  and  speak  in  creepy  whispery  voices.   Also,  when  you  look  away  from  one  of  them,  you’ll  forget  seeing  them.  They’re  creepy  and  they  give  you  amnesia.  Not  good. So  a  lot  is  going  on  in  this  episode  because  that’s  the  way  Steven  Moffat  works.  There’s  a  surplus  of  action  and  plot  points  introduced  and  every  other  scene  is  a  reference  to  one  of  the  past  seasons.  In  fact,  those  on  the  fansites  are  already  chattering  away  about  the  potential  meaning  behind  the  opening  joke  scenes  with  the  Doctor  UXQQLQJ DURXQG D /DXUHO DQG +DUG\ Âż OP 7KLQJV are  busy.  Things  are  crazy.  Things  ended  on  a  freaking  cliff-­hanger  and  I  threw  my  remote  across  the  room  in  a  rage. 7KH Âż QDO VFHQH KDV $P\ VKRRWLQJ VRPHRQH donning  a  1960s  era  astronaut  suit.  We  don’t  know  if  it’s  the  same  astronaut  that  killed  the  doctor  earlier  or  not,  we  just  know  that  the  living  Doctor  is  deeply  startled  by  the  shooting.  $V LWÂśV RQO\ WKH Âż UVW HSLVRGH WKHUHÂśV QRW D ORW to  go  on.  Come  next  week,  we’ll  hopefully  have  some  answers  for  you  whovians  (wholigans  or  whatever  you’re  called).

The  New  Paltz  Oracle MUSIC REVIEW

Renewing a License to Ill BEASTIE BOYS PLEASE WITH NEWEST ALBUM, ‘HOT SAUCE COMMITTEE PT. 2’

MUSICIAN OF THE WEEK:

Andrew Jordan YEAR: Third-year Transfer MAJOR: Jazz Studies HOMETOWN: Mahopac, N.Y.

What  is  your  instrument  of  choice?  Why? Guitar.  I  started  trying  to  write  songs  when  I  was  11  and  I  just  tried  to  learn  how  to  play  stuff  by  ear.  I  liked  watching  guitar  players  play  and  when  I  was  a  kid  I  said,  â€œI  wanna  learn  how  to  do  that.â€?  Who  are  you  currently  listening  to? Ravi  Shankar,  hip-­hop  producer  Blockhead,  Toro  y  Moi,  liquid  drum  and  bass  music,  James  Blake.  And  Miles  Davis,  always.

After  25  years  since  their  last  release,  the  Beastie  Boys  have  dropped  a  new  album.       PHOTO  COURTESY  OF  WALL-­PAPER-­MUSIC.COM By  Ken  Glauber Staff  Writer  |  Kglauber01@newpaltz.edu

The  Beastie  Boys  have  been  a  huge  act  in  hip-­ hop  since  the  be-­ ginning,  and  have  tirelessly  churned  out  brilliant,  ground-­breaking  albums.  For  all  of  the  white  rappers  who  have  forced  white  listeners  to  put  their  head  in  their  hands,  the  Beastie  Boys  have  always  been  there  to  satisfy  the  haters  and  help  the  genre  progress.  No  matter  which  modern  Vanilla  Ice  comes  next,  whenever  someone  starts  hating  on  white  rappers,  the  Beastie  Boys  get  brought  into  the  argu-­ ment,  and  the  hater  is  forced  to  shut  their  spiteful  mouth.  7ZHQW\ Âż YH \HDUV DIWHU WKHLU GHEXW Li-­ censed  to  Ill,  the  Beastie  Boys  released  Hot  Sauce  Committee  Pt.  2,  a  smile-­inducing  record  that  gives  fans  another  unbeatable  example  in  the  white  rapper  debate.  A  truly  admirable  mix  of  modern  studio  methods  and  undeniably  old  school  songs,  the  Beas-­ tie  Boys  bring  their  usual  whiny  screams  to Â

a  new  level  on  the  insanely  gritty  record.  The  single  â€œMake  Some  Noise,â€?  plays  like  something  from  â€œIll  Communica-­ tion,â€?  but  bangs  like  â€œA  Milli.â€?   With  lyrics  they’ve  been  known  to  provide  in  a  retro  and  â€˜80s  hip-­hop  style,  the  song  (as  well  as  the  entire  album)  reminds  us  of  what  the  Boys  have  done  for  their  entire  career,  but  manage  to  keep  it  youthful  and  fresh.  $GURFN UDSV Âł, Ă€ \ OLNH D KDZN RU EHWWHU \HW an  eagle,  a  seagull.  I  sniff  suckers  out  like  a  beagle.  My  ego  is  off,  and  running,  and  gone.  Cause  I’m  about  the  best  and  if  you  diss  then  that’s  wrong.â€?  Certain  parts  of  the  album  tend  to  feel  like  recreated  Beastie  Boys  hits.   While  listeners  welcome  these  imitations,  it  brings  the  Beastie  Boys  further  away  from  growth.  â€œSay  It,â€?  has  the  dirty,  grunge  gui-­ tars  under  it  just  like  â€œSabotage,â€?  as  well  as  similar  kinds  of  vinyl  scratches.  +RZHYHU WKH\ DUH GHÂż QLWHO\ QRW DW tempting  to  relive  the  glory  days.  The  Beastie  Boys  are  very  aware  of  their  sta-­ tus  in  hip-­hop,  and  would  be  the  last  guys  to  release  something  they  aren’t  100  per-­ cent  behind.  Their  well-­crafted  and  unique  sound  may  replicate  itself  from  time  to Â

time,  but  its  originality  excuses  any  repeti-­ tion.  As  they’ve  been  known  to  do,  a  few  outliers  are  thrown  into  the  mix.  The  fan-­ tastically  dubbed  out  â€œMultilateral  Nuclear  Disarmament,â€?  is  an  instrumental  with  funk  elements  like  talk  box  and  powerful  bass  that  adds  up  to  a  welcomed  and  calm  intermission  from  the  rest  of  the  aggres-­ sive  sound  on  the  album.   The  song  that  comes  just  before  â€œMultilateral  Nuclear  Disarmament,â€?  is  entitled  â€œLee  Majors  Come  Again.â€?  A  straightforward  hardcore  song  that  sounds  like  it  could  have  been  recorded  live,  â€œLee  Majors  Come  Againâ€?  applies  the  same  grainy  style  as  their  hip-­ hop  songs,  allowing  the  rappers  to  feel  at  home.  It’s  good  to  know  that  some  groups  out  there  are  just  talented.  There  are  no  gim-­ micks,  no  forced  departure  from  their  re-­ liable  sound,  no  annoyingly  mature  lyrics  that  the  rappers  feel  are  necessary  because  of  their  age,  no  studio  cleanup  to  adjust  the  raw  and  hardcore  sound.  There  is  just  a  fun  and  rowdy  album  from  one  of  hip-­hop’s  most  celebrated  and  consistent  acts.

Hawk Alumni Return To The Nest By Cat Tacopina Copy Editor | Ctacopina97@newpaltz.edu

On the weekend of April 29, the Ath-­ letic and Wellness Department will seek to recognize the achievements of the past by hosting Alumni Weekend 2011. The weekend will include nine teams the department invited back to observe, remember and enjoy the multiple events the athletic department has put together. “[We] invite alumni back to cam-­ pus to see former teammates as well as see how their Alma Mater has changed. This is our second Alumni Weekend this year,” said Erick Hart, the assistant athletic director. “We are inviting nine teams back this time…This same week-­ end we also have four varsity programs competing at home. Alumni will also have an opportunity to see our current student-­athletes compete against SUNY-­ AC competition.” Events include a golf outing at Ap-­ ple Greens Golf Course, varsity games and alumni games for those who come during the weekend. A reception will be held at the end of the weekend for the alumni. Organizers said the weekend is a time for alumni of the athletic program to return and reconnect with the cam-­ pus where they built college athletic ca-­ reers. “Coaches do a great job promoting the event and inviting former student-­ athletes back to campus,” said Hart. Hart believes those who attend the weekend’s events will have an opportu-­ nity to talk to alumni about New Paltz’s current standings and discuss what steps

the athletic department has taken to im-­ prove the school’s athletic programs. Hart also said the weekend will al-­ low current student-­athletes to interact with alumni who have played their sport years ago, giving the students a chance to be social and establish connections when they begin looking for employment. The athletic teams that will play over the course of the weekend are the tennis team, lacrosse team, baseball team and softball team. The tennis team

will be hosting a tournament with SUNY Cortland, SUNY Brockport, Hunter Col-­ lege, Mount St. Mary, SUNY Plattsburgh and SUNY Oneonta. The softball team will go up against Brockport on Friday and SUNY Geneseo on Saturday. The lacrosse team will play Buffalo State on Saturday and the baseball team will play Cortland on that same day. Hart said that Alumni games will also be held on Saturday. Some events include games for Men’s Soccer, Men’s

Hart also said that he looks forward to the event and seeing the athletes of New Paltz’s past and present come to-­ gether and connect over the program that they’re part of, as well as take pride in it. “We hope our alumni become re-­ connected with the athletic program and university,” said Hart. “This weekend provides an opportunity to catch up with old friends and see how their Alma Ma-­ ter has changed.”
