Penn Hills resident Bobbie Piekarski sat at a table in the Cathedral of Learning on Sunday with a candle, small pieces of clear wax in the shape of hearts, a bowl of water and a large Gothic key. Guests of all ages lined up to have their futures read aloud to them.

something new,” Kennedy said. Applications closed on Oct. 12, but all female undergraduate students were encouraged to apply to participate in this event. The relationship between mentors and mentees — all student-based — is the root of the PWLE experience. Mentors are students of all ages who have held or currently hold a leadership position on campus, have attended PWLE in the past or both. Mentees are typically first- or second-year students looking to cultivate their leadership skills. SGB Chief of Staff Ami Fall is in her second year of serving on the planning committee and has seen the impact that PWLE’s mentor-mentee program has on participants. “A lot of people that applied said that they feel they have everything in them to become this incredible leader and do these amazing things, they just need this spark from someone else to show them that it can be done,” Fall said. Mentees are paired with mentors based on their respective majors and minors, extracurricular activities and personal interests. “We like to keep it semi-professional, but also emphasize that these are your peers,” she said. Fall said her own mentor-mentee experience at PWLE her sophomore year shaped her own leadership journey for the better. “I went my sophomore year as a mentee … [My mentor] was a SGB board member at the time and later executive vice president,” Fall said. “It was right after I had gotten on board. I felt very weird jumping into a new leadership position and it was great having a mentor who was able to guide me and had just gone through what I was currently going through as a new SGB member.” Pairs are also placed into larger “communities” of students to meet people with different majors and interests and further their connections made at the retreat. Senior Vice Chancellor Kathy Humphrey and 2015 SGB President Nasreen Harun planned the first PWLE in Spring 2016. It’s become an annual occurrence, overseen

from the editorial board

Heed Macron’s warning about nationalism While world leaders marched somberly together down the Champs-Elysees in Paris on Sunday for the centennial anniversary of the armistice that ended World War I, President Donald Trump arrived separately. Russian President Vladimir Putin made the same choice. Eyes around the world watched these subtle choices through the lens of 100 years of international tensions and history. The day demonstrated that a century hasn’t made foreign relations any simpler — in fact, we may be sliding back into old habits. And French President Emmanuel Macron made a serious case for the collective good at a time when the forces of nationalism are dividing the world in the same way they did leading up to WWI. No one espouses nationalism quite as well as Trump. He went his own way through much of the weekend’s events — on Saturday he cancelled a trip to a WWI battleground outside of Paris because of rain, for which he received well-deserved criticism. Then the next day, while Macron, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and other foreign leaders held a peace forum, Trump skipped out to visit an American cemetery also outside of the city. Trump has recently embraced the word “nationalism” in spite of its heavy implications of racism. At a rally in Houston three weeks ago, he said, “Really, we’re not supposed to use that word. You know what I am? I’m a nationalist, OK? I’m a nationalist. Nationalist! Use that word! Use that word!” The president is evidently aware of the fact that recent presidents before him refrained from using the word, for very good reasons. And it’s this flippant language and acceptance of national importance above the global good that Macron warned against

in Paris on Sunday. “The old demons are rising again, ready to complete their task of chaos and of death,” Macron said, referencing the international conditions of growing nationalist sentiment that led to the outbreak of WWI. His remark seemed to be directed directly at Trump and the U.S. president’s embrace of nationalism, which he condemned strongly. “Patriotism is the exact opposite of nationalism,” he said. “Nationalism is a betrayal of patriotism by saying, ‘Our interest first. Who cares about the others?’” Macron was warning that we should all care about the others. The world has had 100 years to learn from its mistakes, and yet the president of the United States — and the president of Russia — still insists on turning a blind eye to history while threatening global stability. Trump has abandoned international climate agreements, nuclear treaties and trade treaties. He’s spoken against the European Union and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, and villainized people from other countries. Meanwhile, Macron stressed the need for international cooperation instead of divisive language and actions. “I do defend my country,” he said. “I do believe that we have a strong identity. But I’m a strong believer in cooperation between the different peoples, and I’m a strong believer of the fact that this cooperation is good for everybody, where the nationalists are sometimes much more based on a unilateral approach and the law of the strongest, which is not my case.” Macron’s message is clear, and one we need to hear. Allowing nationalism to overtake the globe didn’t end well the first time — we should beware falling to it again.

From the keto diet to the paleo diet, different dietary advice constantly circulates social media. These diets may come and go, but the idea of healthy and sustainable eating is something that has always been important. Diets such as veganism have been on the rise lately largely because the demand for plant-based foods is rising. While the overwhelming majority of people still eat meat — only 5 percent of the American population is vegetarian and 3 percent is vegan — the benefits for both the environment and your health are undeniable. A recent U.N. report on climate change shows we have only a couple of decades before we feel the serious effects of global warming. It’s more crucial now than ever to make environmentally conscious decisions — and those start on your plate. Eating a plant-based diet uses 26.9 percent less energy to produce, 45.1 percent less land consumption and emits 49.6 percent fewer greenhouse gases. Even only partly following the vegan lifestyle can greatly improve health. Avoiding meats, toxic foods and making overall healthy eating choices is obviously good for the body. The effect these choices have on the environment are surprisingly just as good. For example, the whole-food focus of veganism generally means avoiding the purchase of foods packed in vast amounts of aluminum and plastic. Even when eating a plant-based diet, there are other more conscious decisions you can make. Eating fresh produce rather than canned produce is healthier and has less of an impact on the environment, and most canned fruits and veggies have a lower nutritional value then their fresh counterparts. In contrast, all of the waste that comes from fresh foods, such as corn husks, fruit seeds and banana peels, is

November 13, 2018

biodegradable. Canned foods, on the other hand, leave behind large amounts of man-made waste — roughly 1.5 million tons per year. The empty aluminum cans pose a big threat to the environment unless recycled, but the process alone of making these cans is highly damaging to the environment. When factories produce aluminum cans, they release a greenhouse gas called perfluorocarbon into the air. According to the Environmental Literacy Council, the leading cause of perfluorocarbon emission in the country is aluminum production. Aluminum production isn’t the only source of toxins in food production. The World Health Organization has classified processed meats as a carcinogen — the same cancer-causing category as tobacco and arsenic. Science Alert explains that eating just 1.8 ounces of red meat daily increases your risk of colon cancer by 18 percent — and the factories that produce meats give off roughly 15 percent of all global greenhouse emissions that destroy the environment. Even if going fully vegan is not an option, there are still plenty of decisions one can make to benefit the environment. Take candy, for example, which vegans and non-vegans alike enjoy. A standard-sized Cadbury chocolate bar, according to a study by the World Resources Institute, has a carbon footprint of 3.5 grams of carbon dioxide to each gram of chocolate — nearly as high of a carbon footprint as that of meats. Even if the plastic candy wrappers make it to the recycling bin, the plastics are far more harmful to the environment than one may think. Microplastics and chemicals bleed into our foods and water polluting everything they come in contact with.

William Shakespeare is known for his wordy, esoteric scripts that can be difficult for most to understand in this day and age. Despite this challenge, the student actors in Pitt’s theatre arts department took on the task of memorizing the many monologues of Shakespeare’s comedy “Much Ado About Nothing” for a Pitt Stages mainstage production, which is now showing in the Charity Randall Theatre. These students managed to memorize their lines for the very first day of rehearsal in order to grapple with the Shakespearean lines. “It was amazing,” said Jahir Christian, a junior theater arts major, who starred in the show as Don Pedro. “Because I think the reason we communicated everything so well with the audience, and that we feel at least the audience understands us a lot, is because the words are so ingrained in us that we know how to communicate them perfectly.” “Much Ado About Nothing” is set in the Sicilian town of Messina, where the governor Leonato (Luke Pomrenke) welcomes the Prince of Aragon, Don Pedro (Jahir Christian) — who is returning from victory in war — along with his friends Benedick of Padua (Brandon Peifer) and Count Claudio of Florence (Adam Nie). The party is also joined by Don John, the prince’s illegitimate brother (Kyle Corbin). Claudio falls in love with Leonato’s daughter Hero (Emily Peifer) while Leonato’s orphaned niece Beatrice (Sarah Kwiatek) banters with Benedick. Each of Benedick and Beatrice’s friends believe they would make a brilliant match for each other, so Don Pedro, Claudio, Hero and their attendees devise a plan to trick Benedick and Beatrice, who are too prideful or fearful to admit their attraction to the other, to confess their love. Meanwhile, Don John is envious of Claudio for his friendship with Don Pedro and conspires to destroy the count’s relationship with

Hero, with the help of the drunk Borachio (Joe McHugh). The cast officially started rehearsals on Oct. 1, which gave them about five weeks to put the play together. Besides knowing the lines, the cast needed to be able to really understand the thick text. Christian explained that in addition to memorization, cast members were also tasked to look up any words they didn’t know. “A lot of the cast members got together and began discussing what things mean, just so we were all on the same playing field,” Christian said with a laugh. “I think the only reason we were able to grapple everything is because we all worked very closely together and did a lot of research on it.” But what Christian appreciated even more than the effort everyone put in was the deep connection that formed between all of the cast members. “The best part was really how close the cast is. It’s like, it’s scary how close we are, and how it happened so immediately,” he said. “We’re all just like blood in, blood out. Half the fun of being on stage is being with all these people, so that’s probably my favorite part of the show.”

Emily Peifer, a junior linguistics and Spanish major, echoed Christian’s sentiments. “Probably one of the best parts of the show has been the cast, and the immediate ability for everyone to just make bold choices and be vulnerable with one another,” she said. “We do a lot of checking in and reinforcing in the rehearsal process and every day we are open with each other and we’re honest about how we’re feeling, and we’re there for each other.” In regards to tapping into that center of emotion, Emily Peifer explained that she and director Victoria Rhoades did a lot of work using breathing techniques. “Essentially, that’s the key to tapping into that emotion. Breathing into your root itself, and releasing the blocks that you have in your head and your heart and your body and just truly listening to what’s going on,” Emily Peifer said. “It took a little while, it takes practice, it’s hard. The lights help too, with the tears and all that, but it’s all about the breath, all about the breathing.” Brenden Peifer, senior communication and English major — and unrelated to fellow cast member Emily Peifer — shared that he also learned the importance of breath in a different

November 13, 2018

way. “Breathing in Shakespeare, you know the text is so thick that if you have a run-on sentence and you don’t have the breaths to sustain it, then it’s not going to make too much sense and you’re going to fade out,” he said. One of Brenden Peifer’s favorite parts of playing Benedick was his ability to interact with the audience. “Benedick has soliloquies in there where he is directly engaging with the audience,” Brenden Peifer said. “That has to be my favorite part because then I get to gauge, you know, how much the audience is having fun and then I get to bring them in on the fun that I’m having.” He also has the freedom to ad-lib and talk to the audience during some of these interactive moments. “Not too much, though, I promise,” Brenden Peifer said. “It’s only in two monologues that I actually ad-lib — besides that, I do stick to the script.” “Much Ado” is Brenden Peifer’s first time performing Shakespeare, but it wouldn’t seem that way when he is so animated on stage. Christian and Emily Peifer, however, are no strangers to the Bard as they both performed in Shakespeare plays through high school. “I love it. A lot of people are afraid, but as soon as you dig deeper into the text and what Shakespeare is writing about, you find a lot of really rich incredible things he’s written into the text. And especially in the comedy, there’s so many jokes, so much going on,” Emily Peifer said. “So it can be scary at first, but when you spend a lot of time together analyzing the text with the director and with each other, speaking it and really letting it go into your body, that’s what makes it fun and easy.” Pitt’s mainstage production of the classic Shakespeare play runs Nov. 8-18, with performances on Tuesdays through Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m.


Polish, pg. 1 “There’s a heart shape, which means you have a good heart, and there’s bridges, which usually mean there’s going to be some decisions you’ll have to make,” she said to one guest. Aside from the futuristic fortunes that Piekarski brings to the event every year, she loves how it brings people out into the community and helps her connect to other people of Polish heritage. “Seeing the people come back every year is important to me,” she said. “It keeps the tradition alive, especially since Christmas is coming and that is such a big thing [in Polish culture].” The Polish Festival has been taking place in Pittsburgh every November for the past 33 years, and this year the festival brought many to the Cathedral throughout the day for traditionally Polish dance and music performances, food and vendors. Vendors included independent businesses selling everything from Polish Christmas tree ornaments to hoodies with the Polish flag across the back to homemade fudge. Christmas traditions were not left out of Sunday’s festivities. The Karuzela Chorus — a choir comprised of all adults — perform Polish holiday carols at this event yearly, all dressed in traditional Polish attire. Neil Stahurski, the director of the Karuzela Chorus, lined up his singers by the Cathedral’s elevators. They were set to perform after a group of children — also dressed in traditional Polish clothing — wrapped their performance of Polish folk dance. “We come to the festival every year, and we love it,” Stahurski said. “The food, fellowship and the music make it great.” The group passed out a program to the audience with lyrics to the carols they were performing, with English translations in addition to the Polish words written in the sing-along lyrics. As the group began singing, the many patrons turned their chairs to face the vocalists. Guests watching the choir perform ate food

brought to the festival by Myrna’s Catering, which featured some popular Polish dishes like pierogies and sauerkraut. The line for the buffet-style food was backed up from one of the Cathedral’s fireplaces to the main entrance. The food is a major attraction of this festival. One guest who was drawn to the festival by the many diverse, homemade dishes and treats was Carnegie Mellon University junior Austin Saunders. “I’ve really been wanting some good, homecooked food lately,” the New Jersey native said. “I’m Lithuanian, so a lot of the Polish food here is similar to what my family is used to. There’s a lot of sweets here, too, which I’m definitely going to check out.” Saunders and his group of friends soon reached the front of the food line and filled up their plates with the European delicacies. The festival began at noon and was set to finish up at 5 p.m., but even as the clock reached 4 p.m., the Cathedral was still packed with patrons taking in the Polish atmosphere. One of the organizations that sponsors the event every year is the Polish Falcons of America — a national Polish-American fraternal society that is headquartered in Green Tree. The organization is intended to celebrate Polish culture and customs, but also sells life-insurance policies. The turnout at this year’s festival was impressive, but John Denning, the national sales and marketing director of the Polish Falcons of America, shared that the festival tends to bring in a slightly larger number of people than what was seen on Sunday. “Attendance is a little bit down this year,” Denning, who was sitting at the organizations booth near the entrance to the Cathedral, said. “Usually it’s jam-packed, you can hardly even walk around.” Despite the slight drop in attendance, Denning still feels the festival is very meaningful, and most importantly, fun. “The music is great, the people love it,” Denning said. “And the festival brings so many families out to enjoy themselves, which is such an important thing for the culture.”

Pitt remains undefeated with 84-75 win over Troy

Waiver Wire Weekly: Countdown to Fantasy Playoffs




Staff Writer

The Pittsburgh Panthers (6-4, 5-1 ACC) demolished the Virginia Tech Hokies in a record-setting senior night at Heinz Field Saturday evening. Pitt racked up a monstrous 654 yards total, the most in school history, en route to a 52-22 victory over the Hokies. The win also set Pitt up to make its first appearance at the ACC Championship. In order to make that happen, the Panthers have to win one of their last two games or Virginia has to lose one of its last two games. If the Panthers make it to the Championship game, they will be playing No. 2 Clemson — two years and one month after Pitt’s last-second 43-42 upset against the Tigers. Another upset would guarantee Pitt a chance at a New Year’s Six bowl game. If they can’t pull out a win, the Panthers are still guaranteed a bowl game. Right now, it is predicted they will play in the Belk Bowl against Brigham Young University or the Sun Bowl. If the Panthers were to win, it would be in large part due to their running game. Of the record setting 654 yards on Saturday, 492 came on the ground. Pitt currently sits 10th in all of college football in rushing yards per game, averaging 256.9. Senior running backs Qadree Ollison and Darrin Hall deserve most of the credit. Ollison rushed for 235 yards on 16 attempts and found himself celebrating in the end zone three times — once after a 97-yard run, breaking the record for the longest run in Pitt football history. Hall ran for 186 yards on just seven attempts, including a 73-yard rushing touchdown. Junior Maurice Ffrench also scored two touchdowns, including a 78-yard pass from quarterback Kenny Pickett. The coaching staff is also starting to
