ON CAMPUS

Student struck on campus Carly Tynes Printz Writer A University of Southern Mississippi student riding a bicycle across the 4th Street crosswalk near Century Park and the parking garage was injured Sunday evening after being hit by a car, said Chief Bob Hopkins of the University Police Department. The student was taken to Forrest General Hospital, kept overnight for observation and released Monday, Hopkins said. Though no arrests have been made, police said the vehicle believed to have been involved in the incident is a white, late-model SUV, possibly a Cadillac, with a spoiler and a luggage rack. Hopkins said the vehicle was traveling west on 4th Street around 6 p.m. when it struck the student and fled the scene.

Hopkins added that at the 15 mph school zone on 4th Street, “several thousand tickets are issued over a year.” In lieu of the accident, Hopkins said now is the time to remind students, faculty and staff to be cautious when traveling on campus and to pay close attention around crosswalks and bikers. “More and more students are relying on other forms of transportation besides the motor vehicle,” Hopkins said. “We ask that all patrons traveling to any locations in or around campus to be extremely conscious of the rules of the road, as well as those who share the road with you like walkers, cyclists and those using skateboards.” No matter the mode of transportation, those using the roads,

On Friday, University of Southern Mississippi sculpture students and professors performed an iron pour at the 3D Arts Building. In an iron pour, liquid iron is transported in ladles from the cupola, where it is heated to the sand molds that were prepared in advance for the pour. As the liquid iron is poured into the sand mold, the space is filled with iron. After the liquid iron cools down and solidifies, the students use mallets to remove the excess material to reveal the iron mold as a finished product.

Hopkins also advised that music volumes should not be too loud to hear a car horn or emergency vehicle sirens. Hopkins added the public should remember that bicycles must adhere to the rules of the road. Yield for pedestrians, signal intent to turn or stop, follow the speed limit, activate lights at crosswalks, check both ways before crossing and stop at stop signs. Travelers are advised to be cautious, careful and prepared to act. “You may be doing everything right, but always watch for others who may not be paying attention,” Hopkins said. “Make eye contact with drivers as you cross the road to ensure they’re paying attention. If you’re driving the vehicle, notice the 15 mile-per-hour school zones set up near campus.” Hopkins said accidents involving pedestrians and motor vehicles could be completely avoided if both parties paid attention at all times and took the steps necessary to ensure safety on the road and crosswalks. “I wouldn’t say that crosswalks are unsafe,” sophomore finance and business double major Jordan Holliman said. “It’s certainly less dangerous than crossing elsewhere, but I think that pedestrians need to be aware of their surroundings. It is the driver’s responsibility, but the bottom line is the car is going to win if you get in the way of it, so you really need to take it upon yourself to be aware of the situation.”

Outdoor Program offers adventure Paul White Printz Writer

There are many students at the University of Southern Mississippi who yearn for the beauty that nature has to offer. However, many feel they are too busy and and cannot to fulfill their desire to explore the natural beauty the world has to offer. USM has a program that makes such exploration possible. The Recreational Sports department offers an Outdoor Program devoted to helping students experience these natural desires. “Last year I really enjoyed the whitewater rafting trip on the Ocoee River in Tennessee,� pharmaceutical sciences major Tyler Harris said. “It was a bonding experience with my fellow Southern Miss students while also providing a new experience because it was my first time to ever camp.� The Outdoor Program holds trips and events every year, from skiing to hiking to whitewater rafting. “Our goal is to try to encompass outdoor education and fitness, allowing the student body to get out doors, exercise and

learn while still having fun,� Outdoor Program trip leader Ted Olack said. On Saturday, the program will travel to Bryson City, N.C. to go whitewater rafting on the Nantahala River and ziplining at the Zip Line Adventure Park. Participants will also camp alongside the river for the weekend. The all-inclusive price for the event is $200. From Oct. 11 - 14, the program will host an event called

From Nov. 21 – 25, a trip to hike the first section of the Appalachian Trial in Georgia is planned. This trip comes with a price tag of $130. “With trips like this one, we are trying to break the bubble of the local trips and expand outward,� Olack said. “We want trips like this to be more memorable than just camping in our own backyard, so to speak. We want to bear witness to the more epic natural wonders our country has to offer.� Over winter break, from Dec. 14 – 19, a group will join up with Mississippi State Outdoor Adventures to hit the slopes in Colorado on a ski trip. It has not been announced yet how much this adventure will cost. All events offer training sessions before the trips, and seasoned guides make sure everything goes smoothly.

Jordan’s exhibit “Suburban Sublime” was open for viewing for the past month leading up to his visit to the campus. Students in the visual arts were well represented at the event, and many were curious about his methodology and technique, as well as what lead him to his subject matter. Jordan has been a photography and digital media professor at USM for four years and was first introduced to photography

He began taking pictures around his neighborhood trying to figure out this new place through his camera. “I’m depicting suburban neighborhoods, but I’m imbuing them with a sense of wonder and mystery that might not be there on an initial viewing,” Jordan said. This view can also be seen in his methodology. Taking his photographs of the suburbs, he uses them as props within a diorama and then takes a picture of the modified photographs. According to the official description, this is performed to contrast the real and the uncanny.

All of this work was done to mimic a style Jordan discovered on accident. The aesthetic of this set of pictures was taken from the glare on a photo being hit by sunlight. “I think that’s part of our job (as artists) is to create conditions for the happy accident to occur,” Jordan said. “There is a sense of innovation that is very satisfying.” “I’m inspired and can’t wait to attempt to try it myself,” said senior graphic design major Lindsay Stubbs.

REVIEW

New Killers album is ‘Battle Born’ Stormy Speaks Chief Copy Editor

Last Tuesday, Las Vegas alternative quartet The Killers released their fourth studio album, “Battle Born,” after a year and a half-long hiatus to work on solo projects and recover from extensive touring, and the wait has been worth it. The tracks are riddled with Killers trademarks, such as pervasive synthesizer and front man and keyboardist Brandon Flowers’s recognizable vocals, satisfying the familiarity fans expect. However, new musical elements such as violins and brass instruments are added, and the lyrics are less metaphorical and rawer than ones on their earlier albums. “Battle Born” resembles a concept album in that most of its songs address one topic: the heartbreak love can bring. The 12-track album opens with “Flesh and Bone,” in which Flowers asks, “What are we made of ? (Flesh and bone.)” This song is reminiscent of “Human” from “Day & Age” (2008), in which Flowers asks, “Are we human, or are we dancer?” The fact that a similar question appears on “Battle Born” demonstrates the everpresent riddle of human experience. “Flesh and Bone” serves as a sort of follow-up to “Human,” which explores human values, as flesh and bone constitute the basic makeup of a per-

son. Bright, staccato synthesizer is evident from the very beginning, and Flowers mentions the Nevada state flag early on, which inspired the album’s name. The first single of the album, “Runaways,” beings to explore the aforementioned heartbreak. Flowers sings, “I swore on the head of our unborn child that I could take care of the three of us. I got the tendency to slip when the nights get wild; it’s in my blood,” casting the protagonist as unfaithful and not willing to take responsibility for his actions. This has caused his lover to “runaway,” although he still loves her wants her to stay. Guitarist and backup vocalist Dave Keuning drives home the point, “Ain’t we all just runaways?” in this guitar laden track. “The Way It Was” continues with the subject’s heartbreak: “If I go on with you (by my side), can it be the way it was?” Flowers wonders where things went wrong in the relationship and if it will ever be the same again, even though he cannot bear to be without her. “Here With Me” carries on this lamentation:

“Don’t want your memory in my head, no; I want you here with me.” In “A Matter of Time,” Flowers wants to mend the relationship but is in agony because he does not know how: “Your feelings are your own, now you keep them under lock and key. You got me driving through the streets for an answer to the mystery.” Flowers feels powerless to change anything; he can only hope his lover accepts him into her heart again. The talents of bassist and backing vocalist Mark Stoermer and drummer and percussionist Ronnie Vannucci, Jr. shine on this driving, heavy track. “Deadlines and Commitments” departs from the theme of the previous tracks. Flowers encourages listeners to find per-

sonal happiness before sharing it with others, which is impossible without personal happiness. Typical Killers Las Vegas imagery of “neon nights” and “the desert on a hot night” comes out in “Miss A t o m i c Bomb,” in which the Courtesy Photo subject looks back on his innocence and youth and describes a moment in which the fallout from a single mistake threatens to destroy everything. The severity of the fallout mounts in “The Rising Tide,” when he realizes he needs to be prepared when “the truth’s going to come and cut you open wide.” The Killers impart paternal knowledge in “Heart of a Girl,” in which a father consoles the confusion his daughter is facing in her life. She does not know where her place in the world is and seeks guidance from him. He reassures her to be strong and that she will not be alone, that better things are “just around the bend.” This motif is revisited after the countryinspired “From Here On Out,”

in which Flowers decides that regardless of what happens in his life, it will go on. “Be Still” is perhaps the most insightful track on the album. Flowers does not know lies ahead in his life, so he braces for its inevitable trials and tribulations. He advises, “Don’t break character. You’ve got a lot of heart….Rise up like the sun. Labor ‘til the work is done…. And if they drag you in the mud, it doesn’t change what’s in your blood.” Flowers’s vocal prowess is beautifully demonstrated in these lyrics through soulful emotion. The wisdom in this song is invaluable; in the face of despair, be steady and aim straight, stay true to yourself, and maintain composure. The final track, “Battle Born,” is the album’s anthem and closes it by telling listeners that despite the difficulties in life to keep fighting and face adversity with strength and courage: “When they knock you down, you’re going to get back on your feet…. When they break your heart, when they cause your soul to mourn, remember what I said: Boy, you was battle born.” Overall, “Battle Born” maintains the classic Killers sound and features soul-searching, discerning lyrics; it is a quality, mature album. The Killers are continuing to prove to be a reliable and relatable act. Be sure to catch them on their upcoming United States tour; they give an incredible, unforgettable performance.

Opinion

Student Printz, Page 7

Dry campus: Only for students? Arielle Edwards Printz Writer While sitting with one of my friends at the Southern Miss home game last Saturday, we noticed several students receiving tickets for having alcoholic beverages on campus. My friend, who has been a student at USM for years, looked at me and asked, “Why are they getting in trouble?” I responded, “This is a dry campus.” She looked at me and replied, “This is a dry campus?” She got me thinking that many students may not know

about USM’s alcohol policy. Let me refresh your memory. “The University of Southern Mississippi prohibits the unlawful possession, consumption and distribution of alcoholic beverages by students and employees on its campus,” according to the university’s official Drug and Alcohol Policy. Isn’t it interesting that students and employees are specifically targeted? I noticed that a lot of people were drinking, but only students were getting in trouble for it. This is hypocritical. Aren’t the older people the ones usually being obnoxious? We have all seen that mom who is just trying to be younger affected with alcohol or the 50-something year old bald man hitting on a 22-year-old. If it’s going to be a law, make it consistent and applicable to

everyone. I could say, “It’s not fair,” that I have waited 21 years to have this right, but that’s not what it’s about. It’s the fact that we pay a ridiculous amount of money to attend the university and are told we can’t use our phones or computers in class, that we need to attend class or we’ll get a dropped letter grade, and that we aren’t allowed to have a couple of beers at a football game. Game attendance will deteriorate if campus drinks this up. I understand that we have to have rules in order to maintain order, but does everything we do have to be controlled? I understand that underage drinking is wrong, and I do not encourage it whatsoever. As an adult of legal drinking age, I have to say that we would like

to have the decision on what we drink or not. This is our university wanting to maintain a firm hand over its students and employees, but telling an everyday citizen that they can do whatever they wish, even though we’re the ones who pay to go here, and then we can’t even park within walking distance of the District because we have to save it for ‘the paying people,’ is wrong. Let us celebrate football how it’s supposed to be celebrated. Let us drink.

Hilltoppers topple Golden Eagles Ben Welch Sports Writer

A railroad track runs behind Houchens Industries in Bowling Green, Ky.: L.T. Smith Stadium. This single track separates the football stadium from the track and field facilities. Every once in a while a train will rumble through, giving a unique feel to the campus and football games. Roughly 10 minutes before kickoff last Saturday, a train chugged down the tracks with foreshadowing that would have made William Faulkner giddy. It might as well have been wearing a Western Kentucky jersey; Southern Miss might have had a better chance of tackling the train. On Sept. 15, the Golden Eagles held East Carolina to negative four yards rushing at the half. It was a far cry from that effort, as Western Kentucky racked up 128 rushing yards and 298 total offensive yards in the first half on Saturday. Junior running back Antonio Andrews recorded 140 total yards and a receiving touchdown in the first 30 minutes all by himself. “We didn’t come out ready to play,” senior linebacker Jamie Collins said after the Southern Miss defense gave up 560 total yards of offense in the 42-17 Hilltopper victory. “They took advantage of it, and, in the end, we lose.

Jakes was sharp all night, completing two-thirds of his passes. Everyone was involved in the WKU offense. Nine different receivers caught passes and six different running backs saw carries. The Hilltoppers also used three quarterbacks thanks to a big lead. After the game, senior left guard Joe Duhon shared his thoughts on the team. “We have to come together more as a team right now,” Duhon said. “We have to start practicing a little harder and come together. It’s taking more time than we thought it would, but hopefully we’ll get our confidence back.” Head football coach Ellis Johnson called it a tough way to grow up, and it does not get any easier. The No. 19 ranked Louisville Cardinals will visit The Rock this Saturday. Southern Miss will have a week to fix their defensive mistakes before quarterback Teddy Bridgewater leads another potent offensive attack to town. The train left the station in Bowling Green; it will be up to the Golden Eagles to stop another one in Hattiesburg.
