r News q “It’s important to recognize that I haven’t taught art for 50 years. I’ve taught a year of art 50 times.” — Ned Wert, IUP Professor Emeritus of Art

‘Artist-Teacher’ lecturer balances art, education By Jeff Brunermer Staff Writer J.C.Brunermer@iup.edu

Thursday’s “Access Artists Lecture Series” featured Ned Wert discussing the term “Artist-Teacher.” Wert is well-known for his artistry as well as his creativity in teaching. He maintains a private studio in Brush Valley, Pa. His work is currently represented in private, corporate and museum collections in 30 states and 10 foreign countries. Wert is also a Professor Emeritus of Art at IUP and the retired director of the IUP University Museum. He served on numerous boards for the fine arts and is a lifetime member of the Associated Artists of Pittsburgh (AAP). “It’s important to recognize that I haven’t taught art for 50 years,” Wert said. “I’ve taught a year of art 50 times.” He talked about how, through his 50 years, he has taught more than 5,000 students. He made himself a promise that every time he taught a lesson, he would do that project. He wanted to do every project because it is important to get one’s work out into the public. “We have a responsibility to the community,” he said. “It’s important to let them see your work.” Aside from the importance of publicity, he also explained the importance of creativity in teaching. He described how art teachers are a minority, and it’s important for them to accept

many positions. He hoped that all teachers “love it, do it and teach it.” He later took questions and comments about his work and career. The audience was filled with art enthusiasts and Wert’s former students. They had many questions and comments regarding his success and impact on the community. Chuck Biddle, an IUP alumnus, acclaimed his career. Biddle worked under Wert in the past, and also had some contributions to the University Museum’s exhibit: “Beyond City Limits.” “Students can be reached in a num-

ber of ways,” Biddle said. “Ned’s work inspired me as one of the first artists to use powerful colors that were representations from his past.” The next and final “Access Artists Lecture Circuit” will take place at 7 p.m. Oct. 28 in McVitty Auditorium in Sprowls Hall. It will feature multiple artists in a panel discussion.

College loans in Japan to be tied to volunteerism The Yomiuri Shimbun MCT

The education ministry in Japan plans to make volunteer activity a requirement for university and college students seeking statefunded loans and other financial assistance, according to government sources. The move is designed to give students who are using state funds for their education a sense of the importance of giving something back to society. The Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology Ministry will begin informing students of the decision in writing next fiscal year, with the aim of realizing the plan within a few years, the sources said. It is also considering providing additional subsidies to universities that encourage students to take part in volunteer activity. According to the ministry, there are basically two types of financial assistance programs for university and college students in Japan: interest-bearing and interest-free loans from the Japan Student Services Organization, or JASSO, an independent administrative corporation; and individual schools’ financial assistance programs to waive or lower tuition. In fiscal 2010, state money was used for about 30 percent of all

student loans and financial assistance programs — interest-free loans totaling about 254.9 billion yen (US $31.3 million) for 350,000 students and tuition waiver and reduction programs worth about 23.6 billion yen (US $2.9 million) for 70,000 students. Students who receive interest-free loans or have their tuition waived or reduced entirely at government expense will be subject to the envisaged requirement of volunteer activity. The ministry plans to ask students to report whether they participate in volunteer activity when they apply for financial aid or apply to renew it. Also, universities will be asked to take into account students’ history of volunteering when choosing who should receive aid and to provide guidance to students who fail to meet the volunteer requirement. The Central Council for Education is expected to finalize details on the criteria. The ministry is expected to treat part-time jobs that are deemed to contribute greatly to the public interest as volunteering, according to the sources. Universities that encourage students to engage in such activity are expected to be provided with additional subsidies.

Speaker discusses opportunities in nanotechnology By SHANE CRAKER Staff Writer S.B.Craker@iup.edu

Travis Benanti from Penn State University delivered a presentation on the applications of nanotechnology as well as the educational opportunities available to IUP students. Specifically he spoke about the NMT Capstone semester. The Nano-fabrication Manufacturing Technology program is a semester consisting of 6 courses that IUP students take at PSU for a reduced cost. Benanti then gave a short run down of the basics of nanotechnology. He presented a startling analogy. The width of a house (approximated at 10 meters) is to the width of a human hair (100,000 times smaller) as the width of a human hair is to a nanometer (100,000 smaller). According to Benanti’s slide, Human DNA is only about 2.5 nanometers. He also spoke about how humans have been engaging in nanotechnology for a long time. In stained glass windows, the molten glass is mixed with gold in certain quantities to make certain colors. Benanti said that we have since studied stained glass windows and found nano-sized gold particles in the glass that give it a distinct hue. In more modern applications, nanotechnology is very apparent. Obvious nano-based innovations include solar cells, CDs and DVDs, cell phones and displays, but there are many consumer products that are results of nanotechnology. Sunscreen, sports equipment,

tires, paint, money and even some stain-resistant fibers are made better through nanotechnology. Benanti concluded the presentation addressing Physics students on the NMT Capstone Semester and the facilities is utilizes. It is a multi-million dollar facility with the necessary machinery and environment to engage in nanotech-

nological study. The program is only available to physics majors in the Nanomanufacturing track, but if students are interested, more information can be found at nano4me.org. If a student is in a related field and believes they can gain from this experience, they should contact their adviser.

Scientist presents risks of radiation

Major networks block Google TV By Dawn C. Chmielewski and Jessica Guynn Los Angeles Times MCT

The three major broadcast networks, uneasy about viewers bypassing cable and satellite providers — and the networks’ own websites — to watch their TV shows, have begun blocking a new service from Google Inc. that is designed to make it easy for people to watch programming online. ABC, CBS and NBC confirmed that this week they began blocking Google TV from accessing full-length episodes of prime-time shows such as “NCIS: Los Angeles,” “Dancing With the Stars” and “Parks and Recreation,” a move aimed at forestalling the technology giant’s entry into the living room. Google TV seeks to marry the Internet with television by allowing viewers to search the Web for shows and then watch them on their TV sets. The technology is designed to make it easier for people to watch TV shows when they want, rather than be at the mercy of network schedules or sift through the Web to find shows on the networks’ own websites. But the networks worry that providing consumers with direct access — via the Internet — to popular shows would undercut the economics that support the industry. The networks fear, among other things, that Google TV could disrupt advertising and encourage people to discontinue their cable TV service. Cable providers pay billions in fees to carry the programming of the networks’ co-owned cable channels.

Others have cited fears that Google TV would fuel piracy by letting viewers access bootleg streams of TV shows on the Internet. “Google TV enables access to all the Web content you already get today on your phone and PC,” Google said in a statement. “But it is ultimately the content owner’s choice to restrict their fans from accessing their content on the platform.” Google continues to pursue talks with the networks. It also is in discussions with Hulu about bringing the Hulu Plus subscription service to the platform — which would give Google TV users access to full-length episodes of shows from ABC, Fox and NBC. Forrester Research analyst James McQuivey said that blocking access to network shows on Google TV wouldn’t prevent people from watching the shows online because simple workarounds, such as hooking up a laptop to the TV set, can accomplish the same thing. “This doesn’t stop people from watching online content on their televisions,” McQuivey said. “It just frustrates them.” Some content providers have sought to work with Google. Time Warner Inc. plans to offer HBO Go — which allows people who already pay for HBO on cable or satellite to watch shows online — through Google TV. Time Warner executives say cable operators historically have done a poor job helping viewers navigate hundreds of channels of TV shows or movies. Google TV could fill that niche by expeditiously producing a list of sites where viewers could see their favorite shows.

Rick Whitman spoke on Thursday about the risks of radiation in the United States today. The seminar took place in the Eberly Auditorium. Whitman, a former federal radiation scientist, has a significant record in his field. He has worked for the Department of Homeland security, the Army Reserve, U.S. Customs and Border Proection and the Naval Surface Warfare Center. In his talk, he covered the basics of radiation. He spoke of how it has existed since the Big Bang, but was only discovered in 1895 by Conrad Wilhelm Roentgen. He also talked about the different types of radiation, namely ionizing and non-ionizing. Whitman told audience members that non-ionizing radiation is not linked to cancer. Types of non-ionizing radiation include lasers, radio waves and cell phones. Besides the risks involved, Whitman emphasized the uses Chelsea Yurisic/The Penn of radiation.

Students need lessons in off-campus safety, experts say By Nick Clunn The Record (Hackensack N.J.) MCT

Amy Franceschi/The Penn Adele B. Lynn has published six books that have been translated into 10 languages.

Author receives Alumni-Scholar award By John Boddington Staff Writer J.M.Boddington@iup.edu

Adele B. Lynn, the winner of the College of Education 2010 AlumniScholar Award, spoke Thursday in Stouffer Hall’s Beard Auditorium on her achievements. Lynn graduated 35 years ago with an undergraduate degree in Science. She shared her life’s work and study on emotional intelligence. Along with her studies, Lynn has written six books that have been published in 10 different languages. “I have written so many books because writing provides me with clarity and relaxation,” Lynne said. “I love writing books.” Her latest book, titled “The EQ Interview: Finding Employees with High Emotional Intelligence,” has been featured as the cover story for Harvard Management Update. Publisher’s Weekly described the book as “wellwritten and thorough.” Writers have many critics. After publishing half a dozen books, Lynn is

not afraid of hers. “Critics teach you how to be better,” she said. “It is though our failures and mistakes that we truly learn.” Lynn elaborated on the principles of emotional intelligence and its core characteristics. She explained that emotional intelligence requires one to understand his or her impact on others, the effectiveness of communication through pictures and the correlation between feelings and behaviors. Lynn tied together persistence and the impact it had on her life. “I grew up in my family’s grocery store and helped my father make deliveries to customers,” she said. “One day, I offered to bring out a watermelon to our car. I dropped the watermelon and my eyes began to puff up. My father looked at me and told me to go and get another one. He taught me the importance of persistence.” Lynn stressed the impact of all the important moments in her life, thanked all that made each day possible, and accepted the award.

The key cards and security guards that provide a layer of protection on college campuses might as well be a world away when a student steps beyond the front gates. Within several blocks, students might see a campus police officer on patrol and the familiar faces of their peers. Expand the radius, however, and the occasional shuttle bus may be the only sign of a nearby college. The call boxes and other safeguards installed on campus — and often stressed to prospective students and their parents during tours — can’t help out here. “In my professional opinion, I don’t believe we’re responsible,” said Paul Cell, chief of the Montclair State University Police Department, about protecting students from offcampus crime. “But I do believe we have an obligation to provide them with information that they can use to protect themselves while they’re not here.” Because university police can’t be everywhere, educating teens and young adults to make common-sense decisions to protect themselves is an important weapon against offcampus crime. It’s easier said than done, however. An overwhelming number of incoming freshmen have never lived on their own. Students who leave suburban and rural settings to attend

colleges in cities, where crime is typically more prevalent, can face additional challenges amid an unfamiliar landscape. The website for the New Jersey Institute of Technology in Newark contains a detailed list of recommendations for what students should do when walking off campus, using public transit and even dating. Education programs at NJIT start at open house events, when police officers staff a table to answer questions of prospective students and their parents. They continue at freshman orientation and into the school year. NJIT police routinely extend patrols a few blocks off campus. Officers are assigned to monitor a city subway stop on campus, even though it’s technically covered by NJ Transit police. Robert Sabattis, director of public safety at NJIT, said “it’s all about awareness.” “For any police department, crime prevention is something you always have to keep beating the drum for,” he said. Improving student safety off campus has also become the mission of many college organizations. The Student Government at Notre Dame University runs a website specifically geared toward off-campus life. It contains information about restaurants and bus routes. But there are up-to-date maps pinpointing the locations of recent crimes, and contact

information for municipal police departments. One non-profit organization based in New York, PEACE OUTside CAMPUS, has protecting students from off-campus crime as its sole mission. It has established several chapters at colleges. The organization was established by Mark and Kathleen Bonistall after their daughter, Lindsey, was raped and strangled in her apartment near the University of Delaware, where she attended school as a sophomore. The website for the group contains a checklist of questions to ask and security measures to verify when students are looking for an apartment. Another list tells students how to safeguard their apartments once they’ve moved in. Visit the website here: http://www.peaceoutsidecampus. org/. Colleges can better convey that kind of information through police if students view the officers as approachable resources, and not just law enforcers who like to arrest teens and break up parties, said Cell, of Montclair State. Police at Montclair have attempted to change their image by offering free self-defense courses, assessing the safety of foreign travel destinations for spring break vacations and mentoring students who run into trouble with municipal police over minor offenses.

Compromise has come and gone By Ryan Blethen The Seattle Times MCT

The Federal Communications Commission needs to realize what it is: a regulatory agency. Once it grasps that simple concept it should do what regulatory agencies do: regulate. The commission has played it safe since Julius Genachowski was installed as chairman by President Obama. Genachowski has had enough time on the job to know when to get aggressive. That time is now. Congress has given Genachowski an entree to stop the FCC’s dithering on net neutrality. The latest net-neutrality script is a tired one. Most Democrats support rules that don’t allow an Internet service provider like AT&T from degrading content it doesn’t approve of and creating faster service for those willing to pay. Republicans oppose net neutrality because the megacorporations that dominate the Internet have beat everything else back in the free market and are therefore entitled to control the Internet. Enter stage left Rep. Harry Waxman, D-Calif. Waxman is a longtime supporter of net neutrality, which is important because he chairs the House Energy and Commerce Committee, which deals with tele-

communications and broadband. In recent weeks, he feverishly worked to get a net-neutrality bill out of his committee. No Republicans supported the effort, so Waxman dropped the bill. Too bad, but not a surprise. Republicans have no interest supporting the bill because of the upcoming election and the possibility they might be gaining seats in the House and Senate. Wouldn’t want to tick off the telecom giants that feed them. Democrats are also to blame for the bill’s failure. Good broadband policy could already be in place if congressional Democrats and the president decided to push for it. During the presidency of George W. Bush, the media-reform crowd and Democrats talked about how things would be different under a Democratic administration. So far, Obama and congressional Democrats have been a disappointment, with a few exceptions including our own Sen. Maria Cantwell and Rep. Jay Inslee. How is it that a Congress dominated by Democrats and a White House occupied by a president who was a strong supporter of net neutrality during the campaign and as senator is not getting something done? Whatever the flimsy reason for

Dinosaur Comics

Page 8 • Tuesday, October 26, 2010 • www.thepenn.org

inaction may be, it doesn’t change the fact that the FCC has the authority to reclassify broadband into the common-carrier category. This is important, because if it does, the commission can implement net-neutrality rules. Waxman says he might try again after the November election. He shouldn’t bother. The result will be the same. Republicans like Rep. Joe Barton of Texas, the ranking member of the Commerce Committee, will continue to obstruct any meaningful broadband legislation. A number of senators and representatives are urging the FCC to act. In a statement, Inslee said, “Despite the efforts of Chairman Waxman, it is now clear that Congress will likely not find a bipartisan approach this year that will protect consumers and the online marketplace. The time for FCC action is now. We can’t wait any longer.” Sen. Byron Dorgan, D-N.D., and Rep. Ed Markey, D-Mass., have both joined Inslee’s plea for action. The time for compromise has passed. Genachowski needs to do something. If not, he can expect to be lumped in with the past two chairman – Kevin Martin and Michael Powell – as regulators more concerned about catering to those they regulate than the American public.

Why language matters By Danielle Deutschlander Contributing Writer D.M.Deutschlander@iup.edu

In 2008 on his presidential campaign trail, Barack Obama said that he found it “embarrassing” that most Americans only speak one language. He had every right to say that, in my opinion. The fact that so few Americans these days are interested in learning a second language, and even fewer have actually learned one, is rather pathetic. Many Americans go on and on about how great a country we are, and, yet, we are one of the few industrialized nations that do not encourage multilingualism. Most people in nonEnglish speaking countries also know English, and possibly even a third language. As Rep. Judy Chu (D-CA) said in her blog post, “We must promote multilingualism in our schools” at The Hill’s Congress Blog, “In Asia and Europe, the question is not whether you speak another language – it’s how many.” Quite frankly, the fact that we aren’t a multilingual nation makes us look a little stupid. Think about it. Back when slow means of travel and communication meant economies were based around nations, knowing a second language wasn’t all that necessary, since one rarely ever traveled to different nations. Now, however, we live in a global economy that is entirely dependent on imports and exports. The global economy practically necessitates multilingualism, since businesses deal with foreign companies every day. Knowing a second language is highly advantageous in many jobs. Britain is currently having an issue with a decline in people studying a second language, and the Confederation of British Industry worries about British businesses having to hire more people who speak foreign languages from overseas due to a lack of British men and women who are multilingual. Even if you’re not a business major, knowing a foreign language can be

helpful to your future career. It gives you perspective on different cultures and has been proven to make a person more open-minded. As a music major, I find knowing a second language advantageous because of the different languages songs are written in. It may not relate directly to your major, but it makes you more versatile. It’s not enough just to push for more American students to take up a second language, either. I feel that we also need to start pushing for language classes to start earlier and be taken for longer. In the article “Language Learning in the United States: How We’re Doing,” the author compares the statistics on foreign language studies in other countries to those of the United States: Twenty-one of the top 25 industrialized countries begin the study of world languages in grades K-5. This is a stark contrast to the United States, where most students who study a foreign language don’t begin until age 14. And 21 of the 31 European countries require students to study another language for at least nine years. I know at my high school, they only required two years of a language for a student to be able to graduate. I can personally testify that two years is not enough, since I took two years of French in high school and am in a beginning French class in college. If I had started learning French when I was younger, however, things would probably be different. After all, I didn’t learn English in two years, so how can a person be expected to be able to learn an entirely new language in that time span? While it’s great to be proud of our native tongue, I think Americans need to stop arguing about whether or not there should be a “press 2 for Spanish” option given when calling a help line and start thinking about the importance of knowing a second language before we’re too far behind other industrialized countries. It’s a great way to make America a greater nation than it already is.

Football team should not be abandoned in its time of need

Freedom versus intolerance By Imani Dillard Senior Staff Writer I.J.Dillard@iup.edu

The first amendment doesn’t seem like one of those things that could ever be taken too far, but it would seem that the Westboro Baptist Church (WBC) of Topeka, Kan., has done just that. According to CNN.com, on Oct. 6, the Supreme Court struggled to find a constitutional balance between free speech and privacy. The church, led by pastor Fred Phelps, believes that God is punishing the United States for “the sin of homosexuality” through events including soldiers’ deaths. Members have traveled the country shouting at grieving families at funerals and displaying such signs

as “Thank God for dead soldiers,” “God blew up the troops” and “AIDS cures fags.” These signs are not even the worst ones that the WBC has displayed. On the church’s website, which is very distastefully titled godhatesfags. com, they have posted all of the sentiments. Their signs include such as “God hates America,” “America is doomed,” and other such sayings that are, to me, offensive. On the WBC’s website, they call traditional teachings of “God loves everyone” “Arminian lies” and that to believe so would risk damnation. It’s ironic that the WBC pickets military funerals when the soldiers died protecting their first amendment right to peacefully picket. I would compare it to a dog biting the hand

that feeds it. The WBC shouldn’t use religion as a way to spread their intolerance for people that are different from them and hold different views than them. Another irony is that if they truly believe God hates America and that America is doomed, then why do they choose to stay in America? Maybe it is because such a luxury as speaking negatively about one’s country and the country’s government isn’t really accepted in certain countries. I wonder if the founding fathers of the U.S. Constitution imagined the First Amendment being twisted to protect people of intolerance who don’t believe that all people are equal or those who dabble in some religious intolerance. I wonder if they would be OK with it.

The IUP football program has fallen on some rough times. It finished below .500 last for the first time since 1982, and after its third consecutive loss Saturday, dropped to 4-4. With games against powerhouses Cal U and Kutztown on the horizon, things do not look like they are going to get any better. People who are not familiar with the program and its history may confuse this as the norm, but it is far from it. Just the fact that last season IUP suffered its first losing season in 27 years should be indication of that. Since that losing season in 1982, the IUP football program made 14 trips to the NCAA tournament and even a trip to the national championship game in 1990 and 1993. What people need to realize is that finishing 5-6, which is very likely for the second season in a row, is not the norm. A record like that may be celebrated at a school like Lock Haven, where they are used to futility from the football program. But this is IUP — a former fixture on the national landscape – and 5-6 is considered a disastrous season. Placing blame is not necessarily the right thing to do, but something has to change. A program with the history and prestige of IUP should not be embarrassed on weekly basis. Things have gotten so bad people have already turned their attention to basketball season, and rightfully so. The men’s basketball team won the Atlantic Region last season and is ranked No. 6 in the preseason polls. The women’s basketball team finished 17-10 and went to the PSAC playoffs after it lost a great senior class the year before. Believe it or not, IUP may be turning slowly but surely into a basketball school, but only by default. Don’t flake on the football program quite yet though, people. It still has three more games, and although the Crimson Hawks are not favored in two of them on paper, they still have to actually play the games. Anything can happen in any given game. Crazier things have happened.

Hawks flying low

The 45-17 loss to Gannon gives IUP not only its third loss in a row, but its fourth loss of the season. By Kyle Predmore Sports Editor K.R.Predmore@iup.edu

The IUP football team lost its fourth game of the season to Gannon Saturday, 45-17. As the Crimson Hawks saw an early lead answered by Gannon’s 35 unanswered points, IUP tallied not only their fourth loss of the season, but their third loss in a row. Just a few weeks ago, the Crimson Hawks were near the top of the PSAC West with a 4-1 record. With a 4-4 overall record, 2-3 in conference play and the postseason out of the question, the Hawks are currently the sixth in the PSAC West. IUP got on the board early in the first quarter with a 29-yard touchdown pass to receiver Mychal Skinner from quarterback Bo Napoleon, followed by a 42-yard field goal from kicker Craig Burgess. The IUP defense simply could not stop Gannon’s quarterback Zach Boedicker’s passing and running game. “It was a different story between the first and second quarter,” Tobias Robinson, IUP defensive back, said after the game. “We came out focused, you know, fired up, and in the second quarter we just lost focus and lacked discipline.” Last week, IUP faced off against another scrambling quarterback when Ben Fiscus from Clarion picked up 60 yards on the ground. Once again, the Hawks struggled to contain the quarterback anytime he ran out of the pocket. The “dangerous” Boedicker, according to IUP Head Coach Lou Tepper, picked up 89 yards rushing and 186 yards passing against the IUP defense. With two of Gannon’s six touchdowns,

“We watched them all week. We had a great game plan. We knew exactly what they were going to do. We just made way too many mental mistakes.” — Dan Matha, IUP offensive lineman he proved to be a huge part of the team’s victory. IUP offensive lineman Dan Matha said after the game that the most frustrating aspects of the game were “the turnovers” and “the mental errors.” “They didn’t do anything that we didn’t know that they we’re going to do,” Matha said. “We watched them all week. We had a great game plan. We knew exactly what they were going to do. We just as a team made way too many mental mistakes.” IUP’s quarterback, Napoleon, had what could be his worst performance since the Bloomsburg game, in which he threw five interceptions and zero touchdowns. After the first quarter touchdown pass, the passing game from IUP went from flying high to being grounded. Napoleon finished the game picking up only 107 yards, completed nine of his 19 attempts, threw one touchdown and four interceptions. In the fourth quarter alone, IUP gave up the ball three times. Running back Teddy Blakeman fumbled the ball on the first play of the fourth quarter and Napoleon threw two interceptions. Though Matha said the loss “had nothing to do with the talent level or the youth of the team,” Tepper had other thoughts on the game. “I wouldn’t agree with that,” Tepper said about Matha’s comment.

Jesse Smartt/The Penn IUP tailback Harvie Tuck (24) gained only 97 yards rushing during IUP’s 45-17 loss to Gannon Saturday.

“I can understand that from his stand point, I think [the youth of the team] had a lot to do with it. Of the 54 that we brought today, 27 of them are first-year players. So for me to stand here and say it wasn’t a factor would be untrue.” There have been a lot of issues with IUP lately, and so many different opinions as to why. Discipline and lack of focus seem to be Robinson’s main concerns. “The thing we’ve been doing lately, is we’ve been coming out pretty good, and we haven’t been finishing,” he said. “We lacked discipline, and we

lacked focus all game, throughout all the phases in the game. [We] can’t win like that.” After the loss, Nate George wasn’t thinking about the 4-4 record, but was trying to focus on what’s up next. “[We] can’t really think about the season,” he said. “Just have to think about the next game and the task at hand. We have to get back to winning. So we may make mistakes. We may play bad, but we’re never going to give up. We’re not going to pack it in just yet.” Up next for IUP is its fierce rival, Cal U. Both teams are coming off losses,

and IUP is hopeful to be able to get not only its fifth win of the season, but Tepper’s 100th career win. “All we can do is get ready for next week,” George said. “Cal’s one of our biggest rivals, the Coal Bowl, and you better believe we’re going to come out hot. We’re going to come out ready. You better believe it.” In the second annual Coal Bowl, IUP will travel to Cal U in an attempt to bring back the Coal Miner’s Pail trophy after watching Cal U take it with a 41-28 victory last season. The game is 1 p.m. Saturday at Cal U’s Adamson Stadium.

Hawks finish 1-1 during weekend CHMA play By Zach Graham Staff Writer Z.Graham@iup.edu

The IUP Crimson Hawks men’s hockey team continued CHMA league play over the weekend, traveling to Ohio to take on Youngstown State and John Carroll University. The Hawks were upset by previously winless Youngstown State 4-5, but with a 4-2 win against John Carroll, retained the lead in the CHMA. Prior to their Friday match-up, the Hawks broke into the ACHA Top 25 poll for the first time this season at No. 25, after beating Duquesne and No. 24 West Virginia the previous weekend. On Saturday, the Hawks visited John Carroll, and left the Gilmour Academy Arena with a 4-2 triumph. Phil Trombetta started off the scoring 4:55 into the game to give the Hawks a 1-0 advantage. With 6:07 left in the first period, Seth Feldman was assessed a minor penalty for high-sticking and gave the Blue Streaks a power play opportunity. However, a minute later Tyler Fitzgerald scored shorthanded to give the Hawks a 2-0 lead. The Blue Streaks managed to get on the board with less than a minute remaining in the first period, when Jesse Dietrick scored and cut the Hawks lead in half. Returning from the first intermission, the Hawks struck fast as Lance

Lewandowski scored 2:01 into the period to take a 3-1 advantage. A few seconds later, the teams exchanged a couple of penalties, sending two players from each team to the penalty box for cross-checking, roughing, and two delay of games. A little more than two minutes later, the Hawks’ Joe Ford received a two-minute holding call that put the Blue Streaks on the power play. The Blue Streaks capitalized just 23 second later. Dietrick scored his second of the night, cutting the Hawks lead to 3-2. The two teams exchanged more penalties for the remainder of the period, including five-minute major penalties to the Hawks’ Andrew Ong for slashing and the Blue Streaks’ John Figuoroa. After the second intermission, the game remained penalty free throughout the first half of the third period. With 13:12 left in the game, the Hawks’ Chris Cloutier scored his 10th goal of the season to give the Hawks a 4-2 lead that they would hold for the remaining time. John Carroll received 22 minutes in penalties from that point, including two 10-minute misconducts. In total, the Blue Streaks were assessed 45 penalty minutes to the 21 against the Hawks. The team will relax a bit next weekend, playing just one game when they host Washington & Jefferson at 8 p.m. Friday at S&T Bank Arena.

Hawks improve playoff hopes with win By Damon Boykiw Staff Writer D.M.Boykiw@iup.edu

The IUP women’s soccer team beat Lock Haven Saturday, 2-1, on the strength of goals by Allison Keller and Melissa Kornock. Senior Kelsey Dowling picked up a win in goal in her first start of the season. The Bald Eagles came into the game aggressive on offense. Though a playoff berth was probably beyond their reach, they still looked to salvage some pride at the expense of the struggling Crimson Hawks, who had endured losses in their three previous contests against Bloomsburg, East Stroudsburg and Slippery Rock. With nothing on the scoreboard, the Eagles peppered Dowling with early shots. Soon after, the Hawks’ offense started to mobilize, which culminated in a goal from the left side by Keller, assisted by Kornock. An IUP player went down at the 35:11 mark, and the Hawks were awarded a penalty kick. Kornock took the shot, but the Lock Haven goalkeeper was able to deflect the ball over the crossbar. It was the first of five high shots in the last 10 minutes of the first half. Kornock had three such shots, freshman Jordan Snook had one and

Paige Virgara had one on the end of an up-field drive at 42:10. Five minutes into the first half, freshman Katie Tronel got a foot on the ball, inches wide to the right of the Eagles’ goal, on a perfect setup from Carter Sheely. Sheely herself was wide to the left at the 56:16 mark. At the 58:32 mark, however, Madison Taylor found net for the Eagles, tying the score at 1 with 30 minutes to play, despite assertive defense by freshman Nicole Miller. Wind was a factor in this game, carrying Anna-Kate Depaolo’s good shot wide left at the 61:01 mark. The game remained at a stalemate until the last two and a half minutes, when Kornock connected on an assist from Sheely for the gameTashina Johns/The Penn winning score. “This game was really important,” Allison Keller (9) scored a goal during the said freshman Michelle Grozinsky. “If 2-1 victory over Lock Haven Saturday. we didn’t win this game, we might not have made the playoffs.

Tips from

twilight

for a fun Halloween Night

Superhuman speed is only for vampires Chugging and speed shots can raise your BAC to unsafe levels and for humans it can be lethal. Avoid drinking games and know the signs of alcohol poisoning to stay safe. Breaking Dawn? Or breaking rules? Be mindful of the consequences associated with alcohol use, especially if you’re under 21. Get a BITE to eat Dress up and go out to eat to celebrate Halloween! Or if you decide to drink, have a big meal before drinking and continue to eat throughout the night to slow down the absorption of alcohol to keep you BAC in check. New Moon, new habit? You can anonymously check your drinking habits at www.iup.edu/atod/e-chug Eager to find your Edward or Bella? Not drinking or drinking in moderation helps make your first impression last an eternity. Team Edward, Team Jacob, or Team BACCHUS Check out some alcohol-free events available through BACCHUS or SOAR! Fun from Forks to Indiana Remember, there are other fun activities that don’t include alcohol that make for fun lifelong memories too!

About three things i was absolutely positive... First, never drink and drive. Second, I know there is going to be peer pressure, but I can say no or set my own limit if I choose to drink. And third, I am unconditionally and irrevocably focused on my education and I want to reduce my risk of alcohol related problems.

Do you want to dazzle your friends? Be a designated driver and never let a friend’s life end in a graveyard.
