Naranjo, world-renowned percussionist. Naranjo grew up in Colorado surrounded by a family where music was constantly practiced and encouraged. She picked up her first instrument, the drums, when she was 9 years old. Continued on Page A7

Salavitabar Named Provost of Saint Rose

The College of Saint Rose named Hadi Salavitabar as the new Provost of Saint Rose and Vice President for Academic Affairs on Friday. Salavitabar, Dean of the School of Business at the State University of New York at New Paltz, will take over for Margaret Kirwin, who was serving as interim Provost after David Szczerbacki became president of the college. “Dr. Hadi Salavitabar brings a wealth of senior leadership experience to the position of Provost and Vice President for academic affairs,” said Szczerbacki. “His professional accomplishments in

such areas as international and interdisciplinary academic program development, accreditation and resource development align well with our priorities, and I am most impressed with his demonstrated commitment to the values of community and service.” Salavitabar will serve as the college’s chief academic officer and “second-in-command.” Some of his duties will include the quality of all academic programs offered by the college’s School of Arts and Humanities, Lally School of Education, School of Mathematics and Sciences, and Huether School of Business.

During his 12 year tenure at SUNY New Paltz, Salavitabar was the founding and first Dean of the Business School. He helped the School of Business transform from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, which the school secured in February 2013. After Szczerbacki was promoted to President, Kirwin served as interim Provost and Vice President while the college conducted a nationwide search. “I am truly indebted to Dr. Kirwin for her willingness to assume the responsibilities of this demanding position and her superb

Campaign Class Holds Event for Security Students from a campaign class will be holding a tabling event, titled “Safety Tips and Ice Cream with Security,” this Tuesday. This will be a chance for Saint Rose students to have a meet and greet with campus security officers, while enjoying free ice cream and safety tips, said Vanessa Mauro, a student from the campaign. There will also be a raffle with multiple drawings and prizes for the winners. Part of the raffle will include putting in campus security and Albany Police Department’s phone

work not only over the past year but for the many years that she has served students and faculty as dean of our Lally School of Education,” Szczerbacki said. Salavitabar holds a doctorate from SUNY Binghamton University, a master’s degree from Penn State, and a bachelor’s degree from Tehran University. “I am confident that his contributions in these areas will be substantial as he assumes this important leadership position at Saint Rose,” said Szczerbacki. Salavitabar will begin serving as the new provost on July 1.

Mauro said this event was created “to get students to interact with the security officers on a more personal level and get more one-onone safety tips from security officers.” She added that the event should help students understand what campus security offers do and to get students to learn more about how important safety is. The event will run from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. in front of the Camelot Room.

News Q & A with Saint Rose Campus Security Officer Chris Gibbs

The Chronicle

1. Which areas of our campus, or around our campus, require the most attention from a security standpoint?

“We have the campus divided into three zones. An officer is assigned to each zone for coverage. All three are unique and require a positive attitude and solid work ethic.” 2. What time of day do you work on campus? “I work B line which is from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. My two days off are Sunday and Monday. 3. How long have you been a part of the security department? “I have been a part of the Saint Rose community for 5 years.” 4. What is the most interesting experience you have had while on duty here at Saint Rose? “If I had to pick one that stands out, it would probably be a field trip to Glenmont for a nature hike. I was the bus driver and the professor asked if I would like to join the group for a one hour

hike. At midway, one of the students stepped on a ground bee hive. We all ran back to the bus and couldn’t get back to campus fast enough.” 5. What background experience brought you to the security department? “I worked 33 years for a major insurance carrier as a field auditor. When I retired at 55, I stayed home one year and realized that I still needed to get up in the a.m. and have a specific job to go to. I did not want to do accounting or tax work and I enjoy exercise. I had a friend working at St. Rose and she suggested that I apply for a position in their security department.”

Volume 81 Issue 29

you do when you are not working here (hobbies)? “I enjoy golfing, fishing, hunting, and an occasional trip to the casino. I am a certified archery instructor for NYS Conservation Department. I conduct 3-4 courses per year in the sport of archery. I also enjoy taking my Harley for a ride with my beautiful wife. We look for reasons to get out on the road.” 8. What useful safety tip do you have for students? “Stay together as a group (safety in numbers). Get acquainted with all call boxes located throughout campus. Security is there 24/7 365 in person.”

6. What types of things do you do when you are working here?

9. Is there anything, in specific, you’d like students to know about the security department?

“My work day may consist of the three zones on campus or a desk assignment at Lima or Brubacher. I try to help students and staff in any way possible. Also, occasionally I will fill in driving buses when special assignments arise.”

“We are a strong group of diversified employees who concentrate on the safety of our campus. We always try to go above and beyond in the performance of our duties.”

while having fun, and building rewarding friendships. “It’s considered to be one of the most majestic bridges,” said History Professor Risa Fausette, referring to the students walking across the Brooklyn Bridge, which was the major objective of the trip. “It’s the mother of modern suspension bridges.” The students took photos of things they saw there. This was for

a photo essay for Professor Mark Ledbetter’s Ethics and Values course. They were required to take pictures of something that they thought was significant to them. With their pictures, they will then do a picture power point on why they took those pictures. “I really liked it, the graffiti on the bridge was interesting,” said Onyekachi Nzerem, a freshman who is taking Ledbetter’s Ethics course. Many of the students on the trip had different aspects of what they were taking pictures of. They took pictures of graffiti, the signs, people jogging, or riding their bikes, kids walking over the bridge, and the view. Other parts of the trip were a tour to the Tenement House Museum, and a walk to the High Line. Eurie Dahn, an English professor, is one of the professors from

Bennett said this helped students “get a visual idea of what they felt in person.” The students then went to the High Line, which is the preservation and re-use of an abandoned historic freight rail line. “High Line is a way to reclaim old space, and make it more pleasurable,” said Bennett. The students got a chance to walk on the High Line, and explore New York City on their own. Overall the trip was educational, but for some students, like Onyekachi Nzerem, who visited New York City for the first time with the American City FYE program. it was an experience that they won’t forget. The students got to see many aspects of the city, from walking over the Brooklyn Bridge to going to eat in Chinatown, and Little Italy to even taking the subway. “It’s exactly what I expected to be; fast paced, crowded,” said Nzerem.

working with him, his mother contacted the school about having Krystal begin working oneon-one with him at their home. “She seemed to really care and reflect about his day and what he responded to. I’ve never met such a young person with such a gift. It’s something innate to be caring, have compassion, empathy, sheer love, and understanding,” said Ari’s mother, Lauren Kasper. Bartels and Ari have been a dynamic duo for the last two years. The summer of 2012 brought this duo even closer, as Bartels began helping Ari a couple days of week at his family’s home. Bartels lives on-campus and drives over to his home after class on Wednesdays and Thursdays. She is very flexible and usually stays from 3:00 p.m. or 4:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. or 9:00 p.m. Bartels hopes to encourage his interpersonal communication by bringing him into the community and having him interact with others. Activities such as ordering his own food at restaurants can prove challenging, but she doesn’t relent. Often times, restaurant work-

ers look to Bartels after Ari orders to ask what he wants. “Speak to him, not through me. Does he need to slow down for you?” she often asks. Bartels is intent on Ari building his communication skills and learning independence. She does note how frustrating it can be when people do not take the time to deal with Ari patiently and instead brush him off. “Krystal shows a lot of patience and consistency,” said Sarah Sroka, a fellow Saint Rose Communication Sciences and Disorders sophomore. “You need to be calm to work with anyone, especially someone one with Autism. If you’re not consistent, you don’t get the results you need.” Through working with Ari and others who have intellectual disorders, Bartels has developed a great sense of compassion and commitment to helping those who may need it most. Bartels plans to continue her education in order to become a speech therapist and help others develop to the best of their abilities. “You can’t have disabilities without having abilities,” said Bartels.

A New Start Leads to a Change of Heart

CARI MCKENZIE

Krystal Bartels is a Communication Sciences and Disorders major at The College of Saint Rose. By CARI MCKENZIE Contributing Writer It is hard to imagine dedicating her life to helping people whom she’s grown up learning to fear. However, that is exactly what Krystal Bartels, a sophomore Communication Sciences and Disorders major at The College of Saint Rose, has done. “They were foreign to us. We’d run away from them on the street. That was my stigma before I was immersed into the world of disability,” Bartels said. Despite once holding those beliefs, Bartels now works as a speech therapist working with children who have intellectual disorders. Admittedly burned out after 11th grade from Middleburgh High School, Bartels applied for the New Visions BOCES program so she could get away from the traditional classroom. Bartels knew she wanted to pursue a career in childhood education and found an internship at Wildwood Programs to be her best bet. Wildwood provides services to individuals with Autism, complex

learning disabilities, and other developmental disabilities. Bartels spent her senior year interning and taking classes at Wildwood Program’s Schenectady schooling location. However, Bartels’ experience was almost over before it began. “I don’t think I can deal with it,” were Bartels words after her first encounter dealing with two severely disabled children on the bus ride over to her new school. She did not know how intense it was going to be working with these children and felt under warned and underprepared. Many of these children and adolescents are nonverbal, so communicating at all was a struggle in the beginning. Her perceptions changed as she learned how to work with them. “They all have their own characteristics of their own disability. They were different but then you start looking at yourself and say, ‘Yeah, I’m different.’” Bartels’ senior year internship turned into a job offer, and she started to work as a teacher’s assistant at the program. That’s how she

met Ari, currently a 15-year-old boy with Autism who attended Wildwood’s School Program. After writing in Ari’s journal home about how much she enjoyed

Valerie Naranjo Continued From Page A1

Naranjo has dabbled with several instruments including guitar, the flute, and the trumpet, but chose percussion as her undergraduate study at the University of Oklahoma; the place where Naranjo first discovered her interest in West African music. “One course made me really be aware of my groove and it steered me toward world music and pop music, which is what I do today,” said Naranjo. From the University of Oklahoma, Naranjo continued her graduate studies at Ithaca College and soon found herself playing tunes on the streets of New York City, where she grew as a performer. “I took everyone’s suggestions to heart. As a performer, it’s a challenge to meet everybody where they are,” admits Naranjo. Though she faced musical challenges daily in New York, Naranjo had no problem finding love with her fellow band mate and

husband of 31 years, Barry Olsen. The couple’s love for music led to the creation of their band, Mandara, in 1984. The group’s name is of a Buddhist origin; it is a tree full with blossoms that exists in a paradise. “We felt like our music was a little piece of that beautiful world we all want to belong to and decided to use that image for our group,” said Naranjo. “We just want to share joy and happiness with our audience.” Naranjo sticks to West African music when playing with her band or during her solo performances; the gyil, a marimba originating in Ghana, is her instrument of choice. As a graduate student at Ithaca College, she was assigned the gyil for a research project. With little information about the instrument, Naranjo made the brave decision to visit Africa to further connect with the gyil, but had no idea she would be making history on her voyage. Arriving to the city of Lawra,

Ghana in 1988, Naranjo was unaware of the tradition of women being forbidden to use the gyil before performing on the instrument for the Chief of the village. Naranjo’s display was so impressive that the Chief overruled the long existing rule, now allowing women to play the gyil. “I was able to break that ice. As a Buddhist, I always want to leave something with people, something that is really valuable. And I was able to do that for the village of Lawra.” Naranjo affected a culture that day, creating a path for change and equality for the women of Lawra, but she’s impacted other lives, too. “As an inspiration in my life, it was personally gratifying to be able to host her visit to the college,” said Carolyn Stallard via e-mail. Stallard has worked as an AmeriCorps VISTA member since 2011, primarily with Saint Rose and R.I.S.S.E, the Refugee and Immigrant Support Services

Naranjo shows the audience how to dance to the music. of Emmaus. Stallard reached out to Naranjo to put on a benefit concert for R.I.S.S.E. “Music education is something I am passionate about,” said Stallard, “and therefore I would love to one day be as powerful and impactful a clinician/educator as she is.” Naranjo was able to touch audience members with her performance on April 10. “The show was really good, the music and dances brought me right back to my home village” says Adama Barry, a junior at The College of Saint Rose and an African native. “She’s so passionate about her work, it makes you really connect

with the songs.” Naranjo has shared her music with the world, performing in places like Honk Kong, Europe and Australia. She has won several awards, including the World Music Percussionist of the Year and has done recordings for albums and films such as Frida. She has left her mark on numerous people and places around the globe, taking something from every experience. According to Naranjo, “happiness is a fragile thing. The greatest happiness is in the simple things and that’s been an interesting lesson for me to learn.”

B.B. King Continued From Page A1 Rose,” Szczerbacki declared. The three floors of the Massry building were cleverly titled and gourmet catered for the reception beforehand, which began at 5 p.m. The lobby was known as Beale Street, the second floor Lucille’s Piano Bar, and Riley’s 1925 Club was on the top level, complete with Cajun cuisine and entertained by The Dylan Perillo orchestra, a local jazz ensemble. Beale Street, the busiest of the three, hosted a purple-suited trio featuring Jonathon “Boogie” Long from Baton Rouge, Louisiana and the senior art show on display in Esther Massry gallery for gala attendees to browse. Each floor at the black tie event also had its own open bar. A sea of people, comprised of women in extravagant gowns and men in tuxedos holding wine glasses was sprinkled with waiters browsing around with top-notch hors d’oeuvres. These well-dressed people were a good mixture of trustees, board members, students, and faculty, all art appreciators. Ice sculptures and red rose centerpieces added a classy touch, to the alreadyupscale venue. A special table was reserved for the Massry’s in the hub of excitement on the first floor. “It’s important to have a place in the Capital District for the Arts,” said Morris Massry before the concert. At 7:30 p.m., Szczerbacki opened the night, followed by the youngest Massry generation, who both thanked sponsors for making the evening possible. Finally, Massry Center for the Arts Programming Manager Sal Prizio had the honor of introducing B.B. King and his entourage. King walked on stage after a bombastic blues intro from his fellow-musicians and greeted the full house. He received a standing ovation upon arrival in his sig-

nature sparkly gold jacket. The band still playing his introduction, King sat down and joined in with Lucille, his also-legendary electric guitar. “Thank you for coming out and letting us do what we try to do” said a humble and self-critical B.B. King, as he began playing one of his slower bluesy tunes. Upon seeing King perform, his priceless facial expressions, enthusiastic body language, mixed with his smooth tone assured concert-goers that they would be thoroughly entertained. King openly announced that he’s 87 years old, and used that as his selling-point for comedy banter throughout the night. King acknowledged the celebration of the fifth year of the Massry Center for The Arts, wishing “all the best to all of you” in the crowd. A charming gentleman, he dedicated the next song “I Need You So” to “all [the] lovely people” in the audience. The blues legend appropriately performed “Every Day I Have The Blues,” originally written by Peter Chapman, with emotion in each lyric sung by his smooth, soulful voice. King had an impressive total of eight band mates on stage with him, who performed with the twinkling electric Massry curtain behind them. King swayed in his chair to the sexy tune, “Rock Me Baby,” keeping the energy in his voice for love song, “Darlin’ You Know I Love You.” Each song was full of improvised solos by all members of the band. The next tune was familiar to all in the room, when Lucille sounded the melody of “You Are My Sunshine.” To up the adorability of this scene, a singalong ensued when King directed the ladies to sing the chorus with him, and then afterward, on the count of four, to kiss someone in the crowd, for which the house

News lights were brought up. Many in the audience participated in this silly, but light-hearted request. King, with a huge smile on his face, chuckled at the hilarity of this scene, before being kissed on the hand by a woman in the crowd. A comedian as well, King picked on certain crowd members as part of his act. He showed the men who did not receive a smooch during the song how to properly pucker. Next on the setlist was the popular bass-driven soul song, “The Thrill is Gone,” one of his best known hits. This was followed by another King classic, “Guess Who.” A true performer, after doing so for 60 years, King knows how to entertain a crowd. Although the 87-year-old sat down center stage in a chair for the show, King showed no lack of energy or spirit as he danced in his seat rocking back and forth, smiled ear to ear, snapped his fingers, bounced his knees, and hooted and hollered on the more upbeat songs. For his final number, King told the crowd about his tours with Willie Nelson, and how they would always end with “When the Saints Go Marching In.” Modeled off of Nelson’s tasteful tune of departure, King’s ensemble performed a blues rendition of the classic, which turned into another sing-along prompted by King. “You’ve been so good to us,” King said. His last words to the crowd that evening were, “I love you,” and an assurance to the crowd that anytime Saint Rose wanted this “old blues guy” back, just to call him. After the roughly hour-long set without a note out of place, he handed out goodies like guitar picks and necklaces, signed programs, and interacted with members of the crowd individually, with the band still behind him playing the marching tune. Eager to interact with the crowd, King was flooded with fans looking for a handshake and autograph, or simply to share a story with the blues legend, as others proceeded out of the hall

Arts B10 Trance: A Twisting, Fast Paced, Satisfying Thriller The Chronicle

April 16th, 2013

Volume 81 Issue 29

James McAvoy and Rosario Dawson Give Intricate, Fearless Performances in Danny Boyle’s Latest Film By ANDY GILCHRIST Staff Writer The term “mind-bending” gets thrown around in film synopses much too frequently today. Fifteen years ago, The Sixth Sense blew everyone away, but today, you need more than a twist ending to qualify as “mind-bending.” Now that we’re living in a postInception world, everyone thinks that using that term to describe their movie will lead to bigger box office grosses, and while this is often times true, the psychological thrillers being released today are nowhere near the quality or intelligence of the top films in the genre. The new film Trance attempts to change that. The British thriller literally goes into the minds of several characters to reveal their deepest secrets and hidden pasts. The film raises several questions about identity, power, and memory and is executed perfectly by strong performances from the three lead actors. A great film in the “mind-bending” genre will not only require multiple viewings to understand it, but will

make the audience want to see it again, to process what they just saw. While it might prove too fast-paced and confusing for some, Trance is a film that absolutely deserves to be watched and appreciated several times. The film opens with the theft of a priceless painting by Francisco Goya from a London art house by a man named Franck (Vincent Cassel). One of the auctioneers, Simon (James McAvoy), is hailed as a hero for trying to save the painting, but no one knows that he was an integral part of the heist. But, he removed the painting from its frame and hid it before Franck made off with it and escaped, and a head injury during the theft has made him forget where he put it. After physical torture, including a graphic sequence of finger nails being torn off, proves Simon truly can’t remember, Franck decides that the only way to possibly find his painting is hypnosis. He contacts Dr. Elizabeth Lamb (Rosario Dawson), who agrees to help open Simon’s mind and find the painting. But everyone seems to be hiding something, trying to

be the most powerful among the group. Does Simon know more than he’s letting on about? Does Franck have an ulterior motive? And how is Elizabeth really connected to all of this? The answers to these questions lead to a startling conclusion that changes everything about the film, and you leave the theater wondering what was or wasn’t real, even the ending itself.

“One of the biggest pieces of the film that makes it work so well is the incredible direction from Academy Award winning filmmaker Danny Boyle... Shots that seem trivial in the moment take on whole new meanings when everything has finally been revealed.” Andy Gilchrist One of the biggest pieces of the film that makes it work so well is the incredible direction from Academy Award winning filmmaker Danny Boyle (28 Days Later, Slumdog Millionaire, 127 Hours). Shots that seem trivial in the moment take on whole new meanings when everything has finally been revealed. Boyle isn’t new to using violence on screen, famously showing James Franco cutting off his own arm in graphic detail in 127 Hours. There isn’t a great deal of violence here, but when it is used, it’s very graphic and affecting to the audience. Likewise, the film contains a bit of explicit sex and nudity, but it’s never gratuitous. Both the violence and the sex are only used to

Rosario Dawson stars as Dr. Elizabeth Lamb in Trance, one of the film’s most complex and damaged characters. move the story forward, to define the characters involved in it, not to get teenage boys to buy tickets. The film also succeeds because of the performances of its three main cast members. McAvoy has the most intricate character, as it is his mind being played with the entire time. He plays cool, calm, and collected, just as well as he does an out-of-control madman. Cassel, meanwhile, is no stranger to playing the psychotic villain and does it convincingly again here. This time, though, his character shows a more vulnerable side that allows his talents as an actor to shine through. But it is Dawson who does the best work in the film. While she is the master of the mind, it is her psyche that is most damaged and she strips down both her mind and body as the film progresses. Dawson literally shows us everything she’s got and proves just how talented an actress she is with an absolutely fearless performance. If there is one drawback to the film, however, it’s that it might

be too fast-paced, too quick for an average audience. Right after one bombshell has been dropped that changes everything, the audience has no time to sit back and reconsider the film, as the next scene immediately begins. In a film where the viewer must be paying attention at all times to every scene and detail, the film can quickly become confusing and the viewer might not understand everything when they walk out of the theater. But as stated above, the film is so intoxicating that the viewer not only needs to see it again, they want to. The new film Trance is a wild, twisting psychological thriller that is brilliantly directed and features powerful performances from its cast. Though it is not quite as thrilling or philosophical as the top films in the genre, such as Inception and The Matrix, Trance is absolutely a film that deserves to be seen again and again.

Mad Men: One of Television’s Best Returns

B11

The 1960’s Advertising Drama Ushers in Changing Times in Season Six Premiere By ANDY GILCHRIST Staff Writer There’s a constant debate as to what the best show on television is. Different critics will mention comedies like Modern Family, Parks and Recreation, Veep, Girls, and Louie, but these are often set aside for not being serious enough and inferior to dramas. Hour long series such as Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire, Downton Abbey, and Homeland receive lots of praise and awards, and each show has a devout group of critics who will argue for it to the death. But one show that everyone agrees deserves to be in the conversation is the one that is perhaps the most difficult to define: Mad Men. Most people know Mad Men

simply as “that 60s show.” But, it’s so much more than just a series with a unique setting. It’s truly unlike anything else seen on television, a perfect blend of crisp writing, convincing acting, period authenticity, and a cool 60s vibe to top it all off. In terms of other shows on TV, Mad Men certainly has less action and intensity, but it’s somehow much more addictive. Its characters are seemingly on top of the world, yet all of them are damaged, with problems that constantly threaten to ruin everything. While some shows achieve such greatness only briefly, Mad Men has been this good since the beginning and has never let up, proving that it is one of, if not the, best shows on television. The series follows the day-today exploits of the advertising

agency Sterling-Cooper-DraperPryce in 1960s New York City. Among the agency’s employees is Don Draper (Jon Hamm), a harddrinking, chain smoking, and eternally charismatic man with a secret past. Don is married to Megan (Jessica Paré), an actress on the rise, and is divorced from Betty (January Jones), currently a housewife with whom Don has three children. There’s also Roger Sterling (John Slattery), son of a legendary ad man who is the funniest of the group and doesn’t seem to do much actual work. Pete Campbell (Vincent Kartheiser) is the youngest in the firm and is egotistical and oftentimes antagonistic towards the other partners. Joan Harris (Christina Hendricks) was once a secretary in the firm, but has since become a partner after some questionable tactics. Finally, there is former copywriter Peggy Olson (Elisabeth Moss), who quit SCDP last season and now works for a rival firm, but still has strong ties to her former employer. Mad Men has always dealt with heavy themes and this season looks to be no different. Identity is prevalent, with multiple characters struggling to define themselves and wondering if they’re good enough. Don is struggling with his literal identity; over a decade ago, he stole the identity of a fallen soldier during the Korean War, the real Don Draper, and has been living a lie ever since. An encounter with a soldier on leave from Vietnam, as well as a photographer telling him to “just be you,” makes Don question his entire existence. Betty, meanwhile, has become a caricature of her former self; she is now an overweight woman stuck at home who is losing the love of both her children and her husband. She wonders how she got to this point, where no one respects her, and she desperately seeks a change. The other theme that comes through in the season premiere

Don contemplates death and the afterlife after his conversation with the soldier and makes connections between the death of an identity to the death of the self. Meanwhile, Roger learns that his mother has died, but is shockingly unaffected by it, comically so when his secretary can’t stop crying over it. He later breaks down, though, when he learns that the office shoe shiner has passed away and he is the only one who seems to care about it. His conversations with a therapist culminate with the realization that life is just a series of doors and death is the last door closing behind you. What also makes Mad Men great is the journeys the characters have taken over the years. Don started off a married family man, but has since gotten divorced, remarried to a woman he loves, and is now the unfaithful lothario again. Betty was once

Don’s trophy wife who all men lusted after, but now is an overweight housewife with no selfconfidence or respect. Both Joan and Peggy began as secretaries, but now Joan is a partner in the agency and Peggy is head writer of another. Pete started as an account executive, but is also now a partner. In this way, Mad Men is paying tribute to the 1960s, themselves a time of great change, as well as just being great television. Mad Men is one the best shows on television today. In early April, it returned with one of its strongest seasons yet and shows no signs of old age; in fact, it may be getting better. With the show’s producers promising that next spring’s season 7 will be its last, Mad Men seems to be wrapping up things in impressive style before it transcends from not just one of the best shows today, but to one of the best shows ever.

Albany-based rock band Northern Faces has been announced as the MEISA-hosted band for Rose Rock 2013. After playing music in the area for several years under the name Around The World And Back, these young men solidified their lineup and have now certainly caught their big break. Their slow, melodic rock sound recently earned the locals a spot on Albany’s own Equal Vision Records (Say Anything, Chiodos, The Dear Hunter), which they announced in February. They most recently announced

a six-week tour with labelmates Say Anything, Eisley, and HRVRD, beginning this June. The band, who made their Albany debut as Northern Faces at Larkfest in September, features Brian Shortell and Marco Testa on vocals and guitars, Matt Ippolito on bass, and Mike Ryan on drums. “We're honored to be a part of this year's Rose Rock event,” said Shortell. “We're so fortunate to have a school so focused on the arts in our community, and to be asked to play the event was humbling.” Their new EP, “Southern Places,” was written in 2012 in an isolated cabin in Vermont.

The album was released digitally through Equal Vision Records in March, and CDs can also be ordered through MerchNOW.com. “We're excited to show St. Rose what Northern Faces is all about, and hope everyone on campus is ready to make this Rose Rock the best one yet,” Shortell said. Northern Faces and MEISA invite all to check out their music at facebook.com/northernfaces before the festival. Notable Tracks: • • •

Radio Heaven to Be Performed this Week By CHRIS SURPRENANT Arts Editor In the 21st century, listening to the radio is still relatively common. Favorite local stations and personalities rule the airwaves, along with nationally syndicated talk radio dealing with a wide variety of topics. However, comedies, dramas, and adventure stories are not exactly prevalent anymore. From Friday, April 19 to Sunday April 21, the Saint Rose Drama program will give a live performance of Radio Heaven, a sampling of radio programs from 1930s through the 1950s. Storylines include “The Betty Crocker Magazine of the Air,” “The Romance of Helen Trent,” “Suspense!” “Captain Midnight,” and “Baby Snooks and Daddy.” The show stretches several genres, ranging from informational broadcasts to soap operas, adventure, and comedy, and will include classic advertisements of the era. Theatergoers will be given the unique opportunity to witness a form of entertainment that has long since passed.

By RACHEL M. BOLTON Managing Editor One of the worst parts about being the fan of anything is waiting for it to come back from hiatus, or its sequel. It’s something that everyone can relate to. The first time that I had an agonizing time waiting for a movie, was for the film adaption of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban back in 2004. In my excitement, I wrote the days counting down to the release on my calendar. I remember how happy I was when I could say that I had one day left of waiting. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban was also my first experience in disappointment when it comes to book-to-screen adaptions, but I was 11 at the time, so I digress. So what do fans do when they have to wait for their stories to come back? Well there is the usual drawing art of favorite characters, writing fan fiction, and debating the future of the plot. I know that certain people think that it is silly to think on this. But considering that people spend more time waiting for new material than watching or reading it, the waiting is an important aspect of being a fan. It is interesting to see how crazy fans get when their show comes back. HBO’s Game of Thrones season three premiered a few weeks ago. The internet exploded with pictures, gifs, and complaints about what was changed. Compared with some

other shows that I watch, I was not as desperate for new episodes. I spent the hiatus between seasons reading the books, and preparing myself for the drama that season three will hold. I will admit to being a fan of Star Trek without shame. But I will say with slight shame, how excited I have been for the sequel to the 2009 film. It is in part because I was raised by fans of the franchise, and because now that Harry Potter is over, I need that trill of waiting for a sequel. I feel a little old when thinking about how far away 2009 is from now. When the movie came out I could not drive, I was in high school, and still had braces. Now for the sequel, I’ll be in college, teeth are fine, and my license is in my wallet. However, it still feels like not much time has passed. I think that in the end, how fans wait for things says a lot about the stories they follow. The better it is, the nuttier they get the longer the wait. On the other side of media, creators have to be able to maintain an interested audience while they produce the next part of their work. The strongest audiences are the ones that have the writers interacting with them. It makes them forgive you if you make them wait a very long time. (Looking at you, George R.R. Martin). All in all, one of the stranger parts of waiting for your show or book is finding something new to be a fan for. Then the cycle will start again. Oh boy.

A Look into Top NBA Draft Prospects By JOSHUA NATOLI Sports Editor The NCAA Men's National Championship is over and done with. The Louisville Cardinals have been crowned champions while the Michigan Wolverines had to face one of the longest flights of their lives back to campus. The tale of this season does not end here, though. The 2013 NBA Draft is a few short months away and will be loaded with the talent we have seen during March Madness as well as the regular season. Players like Victor Oladipo and Ben McLemore sit very high in the prospect rankings for this year's draft. Let’s take a closer look. Marcus Smart Smart is a player I really happen to enjoy just for his style of play. A point guard with impeccable skills around the basket and from the outside, the freshman burst onto the scene mid-

season for Oklahoma State. You would not judge him for a point guard just by looking at his size, though. The 19-year-old stands 6’4” and weighs 225 pounds. Smart should be looked at for picks 2-5 Ben McLemore Another scorer who can fill it up, McLemore led the way for the Kansas Jayhawks as a freshman. McLemore’s complete offensive game can help a team in need of a scorer, such as the Phoenix Suns. He is well-sized for his position but needs to work on his defense. McLemore also has a tendency to forget just how dominate he can be. He is projected to be picked 2-3. Otto Porter Jr. The Georgetown product showed everyone this season that he has what it takes to play NBA basketball. Porter Jr. is a wellsized small forward at 6'8”, who can play with the big guys down low as well as come outside and

Nerlens Noel is expected to be the number-one overall pick despite tearing his ACL this past season.

stretch the defense. Porter has good ball handling skills for his size as well and is a hard worker. Expected to fall 3-4. Victor Oladipo For the majority of the season, fans had their sights set on Cody Zeller leading the way for the Indiana Hoosiers. Then they were introduced to Oladipo, a nicely sized shooting guard who plays relentless defense. Oladipo is also very proficient shooting from the field, whether it is in the paint or behind the arc. Not to mention the man lives above the rim. Look for him to go 5-6. Anthony Bennett

A name you might not be familiar with now, but you soon will be. Bennett is a scary 6’8”, 240 pound power forward out of UNLV with one of the craziest stat lines in all of basketball: 16.1 points per game, 8.1 rebounds per game, 1.2 blocks per game, 53.3 percent from the field and 38 percent from the 3-point line. This is a guy who could make some serious noise in the pros. Nerlens Noel Who can forget this guy? Sure, he suffered an ACL tear which dismantled his season as well as the rest of the Wildcats' hope at a title run, but he will bounce

back. The kid has way too much upside to be looked over because of an injury. His defensive ability has the potential to keep an entire team out of the paint. One of the rawest players I've ever seen in colleg, Noel is expected to be the number-one overall pick. Obviously, there's no telling for sure who will go where with the always entertaining, and sometimes controversial, draft lottery. Judging by the low end of the NBA teams that will most likely earn the lottery picks, I think any one of these players could end up anywhere.

Golden Knights Drop Match at Home

By JOSHUA NATOLI Sports Editor The Plumeri Sports Complex was the scene as the Golden Knights Lacrosse team faced off against the Southern New Hampshire Penmen this past Saturday. The Golden Knights succumbed to a 9-5 loss after being outscored 5-2 in the second half. The Penmen (5-7 Overall/5-3 NE-10) earned a 46-30 shot advantage over The College of Saint Rose and took 10 of 16 face-offs during the match. The last time these two teams faced off it was an entirely different story. The Golden Knights outscored the visiting Southern New Hampshire Penmen 4-2 throughout the second period on their way to an 8-6 victory. Seven different players found a way to score for the Golden Knights. Sophomore attack Kevin Fleming and sophomore midfielder Kris Miller netted two goals apiece. Fleming also added a pair of assists, both occurring early in the opening period. Junior goalie Nick Longo made five of his seven saves in the second half to deter the Penmen. Southern New Hampshire’s Brendan O'Brien stopped 11 shots for the Penmen; while sophomore attack Jeremy Buckley and senior midfielder

Ryan Woodford each scored two goals. Sophomore midfielder Kris Miller netted a team-high two goals to lead the Golden Knights’ (3-9 Overall/3-5 NE-10) offensive attack. Junior attack Brett McAuliffe and sophomore midfielders Evan Helming and John Zullo also added one goal each in the match. Sophomore attack Kevin Fleming assisted two of the goals. Junior goalie Nick Longo denied a total of 15 shots-on-goal. For the Penmen, sophomore attack Taylor Warden netted three goals to lead Southern New Hampshire, who have been victorious in three of their last four contests. It took Southern New Hampshire a while to get it going. The Penmen finally hit their offensive stride when senior long stickman Ryan Woodford threw in an unassisted strike with 4:50 remaining in the third period to expand the Southern New Hampshire’s 4-3 halftime lead to 5-3. Warden then tossed one in the back of the net, courtesy of a Woodford assist, as time expired in the third quarter for what ultimately became the game winner. The Golden Knights managed to net one more goal, 31 seconds into the fourth period, when

McAuliffe threw in a goal off of a feed from Fleming. However, the Penmen struck back; not once, but twice. Murray scored an unassisted goal, and Warden snuck another one in two minutes later, halfway through the quarter to put Southern New Hampshire in complete control with an 8-4 lead.
