Former GOP head Pauken running for governor AUSTIN (AP) — Gov. Rick Perry has drawn his first major primary opponent in the 2014 gubernatorial campaign. Former state Republican Party chairman Tom Pauken appointed a campaign treasurer Thursday. That allows a candidate to raise and spend campaign funds. Neither Pauken nor his treasurer responded to calls seeking comment. Pauken is an Army veteran with deep conservative credentials. He served as a White House lawyer under President Ronald Reagan. In the 1990s, he helped guide the party’s ascendance in Texas. More recently, Pauken served six years as a Perry appointee to the Texas Workforce Commission. Perry campaign spokeswoman Teresa Spears said the governor “was focused on the legislative session.” Perry says he’ll announce in June whether he plans to seek a fourth full gubernatorial term. He’s also mulling another presidential run.
24 people charged in meth case in Arkansas, Texas MAGNOLIA, Ark. (AP) — Federal and state prosecutors say 24 people have been charged with distributing methamphetamine in southwestern Arkansas and in Texas. U.S. Attorney Conner Eldridge and 13th District Prosecuting Attorney Ian Vickery announced the charges at a news conference Thursday afternoon in Magnolia. The two say authorities executed five search warrants in Waldo and Magnolia, Ark., and Dallas and Desoto, Texas. Investigators seized an estimated three pounds of methamphetamine, five weapons and approximately $150,000 in cash. Eldridge says the investigation known as “Operation Crystal Clear” began in early 2012 and included controlled purchases of methamphetamine. The prosecutors say 16 of the 24 charged are in custody and the remaining eight are being sought. Those arrested are from Magnolia, Waldo, Dallas and Texarkana, Texas.

SGA approves steps for sustainable campus By MATT DOTRAY STAFF WRITER
Texas Tech’s Student Senate is taking steps toward a more sustainable campus. During the meeting Thursday, senators passed a resolution that supports all public relations efforts to promote sustainability on campus. Joseph Corcoran, a senior history major from Boerne, and a senator from the College of Arts and Sciences, said senators met with students from the environment and the humanities degree program in the Honors College, as well as faculty members who focus on environmental sustainability. Corcoran said the resolution, Senate Resolution 48.71, represents some of the ideas the students and faculty have suggested and is a list of small ideas that will be beneficial to the future of Tech. The resolution states the Student Senate supports reducing the cost of beverages when students use their own containers, the placement of more recycling bins in residence halls, the use of recyclable containers for all to-go meals in dining facilities and the exploration of a more efficient watering

system on campus. The resolution also supports the removal of the divider pages printed in the library and supports all public relations efforts made by the university to promote sustainability. “The Student Senate of Texas Tech
University supports the following initiatives and asks the administration to implement these ideas when it is feasible, effective and necessary,” the bill states. Erika Allen, a senior biology major from Temple, and senator from the
Honors College, said she met with Brad Johnson, a faculty member on campus who focuses on campus sustainability, and helped create ideas for a more sustainable campus. SENATE continued on Page 2 ➤➤
Tech system officials meet with US legislators By EMILY GARDNER STAFF WRITER
Texas Tech System officials traveled to Washington this week to meet with U.S. legislators and Tech student interns. The trip, Dr. Tedd Mitchell, Health Sciences Center president, said, occurs once a year in the spring. Interim President Lawrence Schovanec, Chancellor Kent Hance, Mitchell, Vice Chancellor Joseph Rallo, representing Angelo State, and vice presidents of research were in the capitol, Mitchell said. “What we do is we go around and visit with members of our delegation,”
Mitchell said, “you know, our congressional delegation, our senators, our congressmen, as much as anything just to let them know about the things we have going on.” While in the meetings, he said each president visits with public officials about what their school is doing and how it involves the federal government. Mitchell said the meetings provide each Tech system representative with the opportunity to update Texas congressional members on what is currently happening with the system so the legislators will know what to listen for. “For example, one of the areas we are working on is just the (Veterans Affairs) clinic,” he said, “you know, trying to
get a new VA clinic built here on the campus with us at the Health Sciences Center, and so we want to make sure that as conversations are coming up in Washington about various topics if they hear something, in our case, about the VA clinic come up, it’ll perk their ears.” According to a news release, Mitchell also discussed general research, primary care and rural and border health. The congressional members, Mitchell said, also had the opportunity to present questions to the Tech officials and let the Tech system representatives know what is happening at the federal level that legislators want Tech to pursue. Mitchell said Sen. John Cornyn
knows about HSC’s telemedicine program, and asked about HSC’s capabilities to provide mental health services for West Texas residents. “If there was a way to have a telemedicine program set up to help identify people that are having difficulties and through counseling or the campus,” he said, “and then perhaps through more detailed counseling, psychiatric counseling through telemedicine you can help identify people that are just time bombs waiting to go off, and get them the help they need ahead of time so you don’t have a Virginia Tech or something like that occur.” SYSTEM continued on Page 2 ➤➤

A full weekend is planned for both the Texas Tech men’s and women’s tennis teams. The Lady Raider’s (10-4, 1-0 in Big 12 Conference play) will open play at the McLeod Tennis Center at 10 a.m. today when they take on UTEP. Tech will return to the courts at 6 p.m. to take on West Virginia in the first of two conference matches in three days. The Lady Raiders close out weekend play against Iowa State at 1 p.m. Sunday. Tech coach Todd Petty said the team is prepared for the weekend play. “We’ve had a good week, this week, of practice,” he said. “This is the longest we’ve had to practice in a row without having to travel, so we’re going to be able to get better, work on some individual things, and use that against two conference opponents.” Tech is ranked No. 20 in the latest ITA Collegiate Tennis rankings. The Lady Raiders are the highest ranked team from the Big 12. The Lady Raiders look to continue their unbeaten play at home. The team is 4-0 at McLeod Tennis Center with victories against Denver, SMU, Wisconsin, and a conference win against No. 26 Oklahoma. West Virginia comes to Lubbock 0-2 in conference play with a 4-9 overall record. The
Mountaineers have lost all five of the team’s away matches this season. Four of Iowa State’s six wins have come away from Ames, but the Cyclones are winless in Big 12 play. Tech junior Samantha Adams, coming off Big 12 Player of the Week honors, said the team has to take its opponents seriously. “These are two teams in the Big 12,” Adams said, “so we definitely want to get the job done. We know West Virginia is a little dangerous, they had a good match against TCU, so we’re definitely going in prepared.” Petty said the Lady Raiders are looking to continue the success of last season’s Big 12 Championship and appearance in the NCAA tournament. “I don’t think it’s unrealistic to think that they’re going for a repeat,” he said. “There is no question about that. They’re good enough to do that. Now, it’s not going to be easy, and I think they’ve set in their mind that they want to be a Sweet 16 team. I think they felt like they left a little on the table at the NCAA tournament last year.” The men’s tennis team also will play this weekend at the McLeod Center. The Red Raiders (11-5) take on UTEP at 11 a.m. Saturday. Tech is 5-1 at home this season and ranked no. 42 in the ITA rankings. ➤➤email@example.com

Tech softball prepares for Rebel Classic By ELLEN CHAPPELL STAFF WRITER
The Texas Tech softball team will kick off another weekend of games Friday when it travels to Las Vegas, to participate in the Rebel Classic with the first game at 4:30 p.m. against Tulsa. Tech is scheduled to play four games against Tulsa, University of Nevada Las Vegas and two against Boise State on Saturday. This will be the end of the tournaments for Tech as it heads into the Big 12 conference schedule next weekend. “This weekend is big for us, it gets us ready for conference next week. “It’ll be a good test for us,” Tech coach Shanon Hays said.
With this being the last opportunity for nonconference improvements, the team is focused on the little aspects of the game they need to improve on. The team, as well as Hays, is confident going into the tournament this weekend. “I hope we keep doing what we’ve been doing the past couple of weeks,” Hays said. “There’s a couple of things we really want to get better at as far as throwing runners out and the hitting in different situations and playing the small game. You always need to get better at that. But I’ve really seen our team improve over the past couple of weeks and that’s been fun.”

Scientists find universe is 80 million years older PARIS (AP) — A new examination of what is essentially the universe’s birth certificate allows astronomers to tweak the age, girth and speed of the cosmos, more secure in their knowledge of how it evolved, what it’s made of and its ultimate fate. Sure, the universe suddenly seems to be showing its age, now calculated at 13.8 billion years — 80 million years older than scientists had thought. It’s got about 3 percent more girth — technically it’s more matter than mysterious dark energy — and it is expanding about 3 percent more slowly. But with all that comes the wisdom for humanity. Scientists seem to have gotten a good handle on the Big Bang and what happened just
afterward, and may actually understand a bit more about the cosmic question of how we are where we are. All from a baby picture of fossilized light and sound. The snapshot from a European satellite had scientists from Paris to Washington celebrating a cosmic victory of knowledge Thursday — basic precepts that go back all the way to Einstein and relativity. The Planck space telescope mapped background radiation from the early universe — now calculated at about 13.8 billion years old. The results bolstered a key theory called “inflation,” which says the universe burst from subatomic size to its vast expanse in a fraction of a second just after the Big Bang that created the cosmos.

Thursday’s Puzzle Solved
No one was dragging their heels Thursday night at Texas Tech’s fourth annual drag show. The event was joint-hosted by the Residence Hall Association, the Gay-Straight Alliance, Gamma Sigma Rho and the Parents of Lesbians and Gays in the Frazier Alumni Pavilion. The building was packed from wall to wall with the 431 attendants. “I got involved because of my position with the Residence Hall Association,” said junior history and exercise and sport sciences major from Big Spring Stormi Smith. “I’m the vice president for traditional programs and leadership development. This is our fourth annual drag show, so that falls under my jurisdiction.” Smith said the various organizations have been working since November to set up the event, including hiring a disc jokey, getting decorations and finding performers. “The GSA is in charge of the amateur performers tonight, who are all students,” she said. “They had to go and try out or apply for the chance to perform.” Camille Davenport, a sophomore apparel design and manufacturing major from Colorado Springs, Colo., performed with her sister Phoebe Davenport, a junior civil engineering major from Lubbock. The ladies performed to a mix of Ke$ha, Britney Spears, Pink and Beyonce. “I went to a party where I met a drag queen,” Camille said. “She told me what to do and gave me lessons. I told Phoebe about it and we decided that since we were sisters, we should do it together.” Phoebe Davenport said it takes

Allen said the resolution is a lot of small ideas, but they have the potential to make a big impact on campus. “There are some things we had to take out, obviously because of infeasibility, but I really hope all of you will support this,” Allen said before the bill passed. “It’s very minimal changes that can make a big difference. I’d like to see it happen and I know that people that helped author this and the students that came to us, hoping that this would happen, would really appreciate sending this forward.” At the meeting, senators also passed a bill that adopted the Tech Student Government Code of Ethics and conduct, made amendments to the bill that allocates the amount of funding for student organizations and a resolution to formally congratulate the Tech meat judging teams. According to the resolution, the meat judging teams won their 10th National Championship in 2012 and recently finished first in the Houston Livestock Show’s Intercollegiate Meat Judging Contest. Senators also passed Senate Bill 48.13, which allows senators to begin using outlets such as TechAnnounce to promote and advertise their events on campus. “(Public Relations) shall also be responsible for advertising each meeting of the Student Senate to the student body, and have access to the necessary channels for that purpose,” the bill states. Senator Corcoran said the bill is written vaguely to give public relations the ability to start communicating to students in whatever way they think is appropriate. The bill will help make students more aware of what student government is doing, he said. ➤➤firstname.lastname@example.org

the sisters a few hours to complete the look, from hair and make-up to getting into the dress and shoes. “My favorite part is the transformation,” Camille said. “I love changing my persona from who I was and going into being Camille.” While the performers must undergo a transformation before getting on-stage, Smith said their hobby rarely affects their off-stage life. “While they are in drag, we call them ladies because they are performing as women,” she said. “They say they’re like two totally different identities. They have their
male personality and their female personality. They even have different spots in their closet, so when they’re performing, they’re women but when they get home, they’re men again.” Audience members came from all around campus, with different backgrounds, genders and sexual preferences, as demonstrated by the raising of hands to show the diversity in the audience, led by the emcee. “I’m here for two reasons,” said senior chemical engineering major from Grand Prairie Evelyn Lambert. “It’s fun and it also does support
something that I think should be supported. I like the cause they’re going for.” The groups hosting the event and the performers themselves said they wanted to break down the stereotypes surrounding drag queens. “Most people think of it as drag queens want to be a ladies,” Camille said. “No, I love being a boy, but I also have another personality that I want to show through being Camille. It’s just a different way for me to express myself. Everyone does it, this is just how I do it.” ➤➤email@example.com
Study finds nearly 2 in 3 hate crimes unreported WASHINGTON (AP) — Despite growing awareness of hate crimes, the share of those crimes reported to police has fallen in recent years as more victims of violent attacks express doubt that police can or will help. Nearly 2 of 3 hate crimes go unreported to police, the Justice Department’s Bureau of Justice Statistics reported Thursday. For the years 2003-06, 46 percent of hate crimes were reported to police. But more recently, in 2007-11, just 35 percent were reported. There was an increase in the percentage of victims of violent hate crimes who didn’t report the crime because they believed the police could not or would not help, from 14 percent in 2003-06 to 24 percent in 2007-11, the bureau said. “It’s shocking to see that much of an increase in the feeling of futility that hate crime victims are apparently experiencing,” Jason Marsden, the executive director of the Matthew Shepard Foundation, said in an interview. Shepard, a gay college student, was killed in a 1998 attack that police said was motivated in part
by his sexual orientation. His parents started the foundation. Hate groups are becoming increasingly violent, which raises the possibility that victims are afraid to report the acts to police out of fear of reprisal, said Jim Bueermann, president of the Police Foundation, the nation’s oldest police research organization. Among various studies that point to rising violence in hate crimes, the statistics bureau found a growing percentage of violent hate crimes as opposed to property crimes. Violence accounted for 84 percent of the hate crimes during 2003-06 but rose to 92 percent during 2007-11. This comes as the Southern Poverty Law Center reports that it has identified more than 1,000 organized hate groups in each of the last three years, compared with 600 to 700 such groups in the period 2000-02. The decline in reporting disclosed in the statistics bureau’s new study comes despite increasing attention paid to the subject of hate crime by police and community groups. “What’s surprising about this is that knowledge of hate crimes is far more prevalent across the country
than it ever has been at any time in our history,” Chuck Wexler, executive director of the Police Executive Research Forum, said in an interview. The forum is a Washington police research organization. Congress has defined a hate crime as a criminal offense motivated by bias against a race, religion, disability, ethnic origin or sexual orientation. The data in the latest report comes primarily from the National Crime Victimization Survey, which has been collecting information on crimes motivated by hate since 2003. The statistics bureau is able to gauge the percentage of crimes that go unreported to police because its victimization survey is based on a large, representative sample of Americans interviewed annually by the Census Bureau about their experiences with crime and responses to it. The Police Foundation’s Bueermann said there is an increased sensitivity on the part of police to the devastating nature of hate crime. “I certainly saw that in my career,” said Bueermann, who spent 33 years as a Southern California police officer, 13 of them as a police chief.
events including receptions. The officials, he said, have been making the trip annually since at least 2006 when Hance became chancellor. “It’s a lot of fun,” Mitchell said. “It’s always very, very busy. We always stay busy kind of from morning till super time every night, and, but it’s kind of a whirlwind trip when we take it, but it’s always a great way to reconnect with our delegation.”

Brittany Talley, Tech softball playing engineer By ELLEN CHAPPELL STAFF WRITER
Brittany Talley has made her way to be one of Texas Tech’s most valuable pitchers during her three years in college. She began simply playing Tball as a 4-year-old girl, but says she considers starting to play at 9-years-old when she began playing select ball, which initiated year-round and traveling to play. Talley said she was inspired to play by her father, who coached many sports but never coached softball or baseball. She said he saw the school’s softball team with a pitcher who could only pitch and encouraged her to begin her years of the game. “He would go out and watch the softball team at our school, and there was this one girl who could pitch but she couldn’t do anything else,” Talley said. “So he decided that he might as well let me try out for the team and that no matter what, I could do one thing. And it ended up that I liked it a lot and I kept doing it.” Talley said. In Talley’s lifetime, she has moved nine times besides her move to Lubbock. She said her family moved a few times just to exclude the traveling for her softball practice. “I’m from everywhere in Texas,” Talley said. “I mean, I like moving, I like meeting new people so it’s worked out. A couple times we did move for softball. When I moved into high school, I moved from Mildred to

Though the tournament requires the team’s attention, the women are looking ahead to the start of their conference play. Tech junior infielder Taylor Powell said the pre-conference experience was good to have to get comfortable with the young team, but they have been awaiting the start of the Big 12 competition the entire year and are excited to get it started. Along with Hays, the players have noticed the improvements amongst themselves. With the
Little Elm where I went to high school all four years. It was mostly just because we were traveling an hour, three times a week to go practice and then traveling a couple hours on the weekend and so they figured moving into Dallas would be a little better for practice.” Talley said her home was isolated and that caused her to grow to like the outdoors and she would create various things to entertain herself while she is at home. She said she used to enjoy doing crafts, but mostly just loves to be outdoors. “I have every hobby known to man,” she said. “I live in the middle of nowhere and so of course, you find a lot of random things to do. I hunt and fish, is my biggest things. I go shooting all the time, wakeboarding, snowboarding and that kind of stuff. For the most part just outdoors type stuff, like all the time.” Beside the outdoors and softball, Talley focuses her attention to school. Being a chemical engineering major, her academic efforts are demanded to stay in good standing in school. She said she’s always been interested in mathematics and sciences, so her major is close to her heart. “I absolutely love doing it,” she said. “It’s definitely rough, especially traveling so much during the spring but I mean, by this time I’ve gotten pretty good at it and I’m learning how to do it and manage my time. After this semester, I’m basically all down hill, so I just have to fin-
ish this semester.” She said she is most interested more in pursuing a career along the lines of her chemical engineering major and is leaving to Denver City this summer to learn more about what she aspires to do in an internship with Oxy. “It’s a big oil company, I’m going to be a facilities engineer,” Talley said. “I actually get real jobs I’m going to basically be an employee for them. I think I’ll really like it. I did a mini internship over Christmas break with Schlumberger and it was awesome. I learned so much, and it just made me more excited to actually get to do it.” After her internship, that will potentially offer her a permanent position, Talley said she is interested to see what is next for her even though her love for softball will never change. “I mean, I absolutely love softball and I have since day one and it will always be apart of my life,” she said. “Like I’ll always coach, I’ll always play city league softball and that kind of stuff and I’ll always give pitching lessons but I think I’m excited to kind of move on and go to the next part of my life and be to the point where I have a real job instead of softball every day. I think I’ll really enjoy it, as much as I love softball and I know I’m going to miss it and I know I will ball my eyes out at my last game, but at the same time I’m kind of excited to see what else I have,” she said.
youth of the team this year, it has been a trend to focus on the team chemistry and work toward knowing each other’s strengths, and some of the players have surprised the lineup. “As we’ve seen, slowly but surely each week we’ve gotten a little better we’ve seen different people step up in places that we didn’t know they were going to step up at,” junior pitcher Brittany Talley said. “There’s people that we didn’t think would be starting that are now starting. You just never know what’s going to happen especially once we start conference, it’s a completely different ball game.”
Hays has been working with the young team, teaching and learning, during nonconference to prepare them for what they will see later in the season and he now expresses confidence in the abilities on his team. “I’ve learned a lot over the past month,” he said. “When you put them in real-game situations you find out what they can do. I feel like our defense is a lot better than when we started the year. And the one thing that is exciting for me is that I feel really good about our pitching going into our conference.”
Sale goes 7 innings, White Sox beat Brewers 8-3 GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — For White Sox left-hander Chris Sale, it was nice to turn around and see the team’s top outfielders standing behind him. With center fielder Alejandro De Aza and right fielder Alex Rios back from the World Baseball Classic, Chicago was close to full strength when it defeated the Milwaukee Brewers 8-3 Thursday. Sale allowed four hits over seven innings, including two solo home runs. Ryan Braun had an inside-theparker on a ball that De Aza jumped for at the wall. Sale threw 75 pitches and when he was finished, he threw 25 more in the bullpen. He has one more start before opening day against the Kansas City Royals on April 1. “We’re a week or so away, so having Rios and ‘D’ back at camp is good,” Sale said. “They had a blast and told fun stories. It’s nice to have them back and get us in the swing of things.” Rios hit two doubles and drove in two runs and De Aza doubled and singled. They faced each other in the WBC championship game in San Francisco on Tuesday night, when De Aza and the Dominican Republic topped Rios and Puerto Rico. Rios, batting third in front of Adam Dunn and Paul Konerko, doubled his first two times up against Mike Fiers. De Aza hit leadoff and scored two runs. “They’re ready to go, I guess,” manager Robin Ventura said. “They’ve logged some innings. It’s nice just to have them back. You get a little more of a flow of how the lineup would go if that’s the way you roll it out.” Jeff Keppinger homered, singled and walked. He is 16 for 31 this spring
for the White Sox. Gordon Beckham added a home run for Chicago. Donnie Murphy also homered against Sale, who didn’t seem to mind because no runners were on. The 2012 All-Star walked one and struck out three. “Regular season, that was close to a complete game right there,” Sale said. “Pitch count was down — that’s what you shoot for. I’m not going to be as sore the next day and will bounce back a little quicker.” Sale, who dealt with a brief elbow issue last season, said he feels strong this spring. “So far, so good, knock on wood,” he said. “I feel loose, and I feel like my arm is bouncing back the way I want it to.” Fiers wasn’t nearly as good as Sale, getting roughed up for seven runs and eight hits over three innings. “I had no idea where the ball was going,” Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said of Fiers’ outing. “He’s got one more outing, hopefully he looks better. Couldn’t command, couldn’t throw strikes for anything.” NOTES: Ventura said Jake Peavy, Gavin Floyd and Jose Quintana will likely follow Sale in the rotation. Dylan Axelrod would be fifth if he gets the nod over Hector Santiago for the fifth spot. ... Axelrod, the likely replacement for John Danks in the White Sox rotation while Danks builds up arm strength in minor league games, will start against the Royals on Sunday. ... Roenicke said INF Taylor Green will sit out for at least a few days to recover from a hip injury he sustained Tuesday. ...

Words with negative connotation lose meaning I
’ve noticed a few columnists from The Daily Toreador (Dora Smith, Megan Hansen) have written about being careful in the word choices we use. There is nothing wrong with occasionally curbing language to avoid offending people who have nothing better going on with their lives than to resent and bicker every shady comment, or do not have the spine, or inner self-respect, to withstand diction that doesn’t fit their hoped gaiety. Here is the argument for the speaker who wishes to express themselves the way they see the world, not always in a jolly fashion, which makes the words they use not always as cheery as some would wish. I may come off as a jerk, but that is where I feel comfortable anyway. Constantly using words in a direct, logical manner to describe what we are dealing with or how we are feeling would be a bland way to communicate. In fact, with regression, speaking and writing would be (and is) useless in general. This is because words (symbols for what we mean) as we know them, are a poor substitute for what we actually mean. It’s still the best we have evolved to communicate which is why we
Jordan Sigler still use them and shouldn’t yet abandon the practice. Twentieth Century philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein explained the role words have to describe the world we see in his book Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus. (A free eBook everyone should read.) The idea is what we see in the world is what is the world, “The world is all that is the case.” Essentially, words envelop, or make up what the world is. The problem with using words is that human language inadequately names what they perceive or can easily misconstrue what the meaning that was from the original speaker. From Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus, “Language disguises thought. So much so, that from the outward form of the clothing it is impossible to infer the form of the thought beneath it, because the outward form of the clothing is not designed to reveal the form
of the body, but for entirely different purposes.” Ironically, Wittgenstein was conscious of even the difficulty of interpreting his book’s meaning by his own logic, i.e. he knew he would be the only person who would understand it exactly like he meant it or someone who already had those thoughts in the book. From this we understand words we use are to as closely as we can, with certain limitations, in order to stay true to the picture of the world we see. Using adjectives to describe people or situations directly may then be a problem. As an example, insults people use toward another person in jest (doesn’t have to be just jest) shouldn’t offend third parties listening in. For instance in everyday language I often hear people call another “dumb” for what I would assume to mean “stupid.” The original meaning of dumb is of course to lack the ability to speak out loud. Merriam-Webster (and other dictionaries) later added the definition in examples six and seven to include lacking intelligence. This is supposedly attributed to the German word “dumm” which means “stupid” according to thefreedictionary.com.
“Retard” is another word a lot of people take offense to now for no good reason; especially since now the word is no longer used in the general public to describe people with mental handicaps. This is correct, as numerous people with mental handicaps are often mentally brilliant but either learn or communicate their genius in a way most people don’t understand. The word “retard,” nonetheless, has a place in the dictionary and if used correctly shouldn’t be offensive no matter what bleeding hearts try to tell us. MerriamWebster defines “retard” as a verb “1: to slow up especially by preventing or hindering advance or accomplishment,” and “2: to delay academic progress by failure to promote.” As a noun “1: a holding back or slowing down.” Thus someone who is not contributing or is sabotaging academic discussion is in perfect respect to be called a “retard.” After learning what the adjective means or how to properly (as best as humanly possible) to use adjectives by arguing technicalities comes the more maddening problem of relating these concepts to other people; because as much as you or I might want or not
want, other people will not be on the same page as you when you say something. So someone saying they are having a bipolar day, or acting bipolar, may not be using the term using incorrectly, as in MerriamWebster’s first definition, “having or marked by two mutually repellent forces or diametrically opposed natures or views.” If they are referring to bipolar disorder, they could again through technicality be correct as fourth definition of bipolar states, “being, or characteristic of, or affected with bipolar disorder.” So technically, that student may be being characteristic of bipolar disorder. These problems don’t go away when people use hyperbole, or metaphor, or simile to describe, or relate the situation they are in to another person/s. Wittgenstein proves outright that all metaphor is illogical. Two different phenomena cannot be equal as they are made up of different variables; they can only be similar. Again from Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus, “Roughly speaking, to say of two things that they are identical is nonsense, and to say of one thing that is identical with itself is to say nothing at all.”
Some people complain they become offended when other people say they are having a problem and use term with certain disabilities (I hear attention deficit disorder constantly) they do not have. Those people are absolutely right. People who use this type of hyperbole are not using the term correctly, but they may be doing the best they can to relate their problem to whom they are talking to. These comparisons are the best we can do to explain what we perceive to others. Using comparisons such as these shouldn’t be that big of a deal. It’s better to have the attitude of not getting upset at words when living in a country that promotes free speech in a world that has only a poor way to communicate. Remember, you do not have the right not to be offended. Instead of being quick to take offense, try to figure out the meaning the speaker was trying to express in order to gain a greater understanding of the situation, otherwise you’re just being retarded.

Student loans: Avoid making them your financial crisis Student loans are near and dear to all our hearts. You like them a lot more than I do at this point, I promise. Making payments is not nearly as fun as receiving refunds. Refunds end up as new lap tops or tablets, nights out with friends, and a spring break trip we never forget. Repayment means box wine at home instead of bar tabs, Netflix instead of cable, and staycation instead of vacation. The student loan debt tally is soaring higher and higher and seemingly has no end in sight. Colleges and universities have little incentive to truly control prices because there are so many people willing to finance
enormous amounts of money to get a degree. We have been socialized to believe and think that everyone should get a college degree. Student loans exist to make that reality. We thought the same about owning a home and sub-prime lending made that a possibility. The end result was and still is a huge disaster. Borrowers could borrow far more money than their home was worth with little correlation to their ability to repay. Financing a college education is no different. Federal student loans are not based on your ability to repay. You can borrow the same amount of money for a degree that could land you a job making $35,000 as you could for one

that could allow you to earn $75,000. We should put the blame on the university for charging the same price for those two degrees because they don’t have the same economic value. We all decide what we want to study and I’m not suggesting that one is better or more important than the other; I mention that only because we need to make smart financial decisions about our future. According to the university, the cost of attending U. Toledo with no grants or scholarships with living on campus is $23,108 per year. That is $93,432 for a four year degree. That is an enormous monthly payment to make after graduation, whether you are working or not. And that debt isn’t like other debts you have or will

incur later – you own it forever. It is almost impossible to discharge a student loan in bankruptcy and the lenders don’t play by the same rules as other creditors. They can garnish your wages, take your tax refunds, take a portion of your social security or the social security of your cosigner, and the list goes on. The good news is that federal student loans have far more options for help than their private counterparts, so please avoid private loans if at all possible. One of the biggest advantages is loan forgiveness (not for private loans) if you work in public service. This option allows for graduates to take jobs in the public sector that typically don’t pay as well as private sector jobs, and have the
balance of their loans forgiven after meeting certain requirements. You can read all the details at http://www. finaid.org/loans/publicservice.phtml. As a bankruptcy attorney, the number of people I see with unmanageable student loan debt is staggering and frightening. In almost every case, they have borrowed far more money than they could ever possibly repay given the field they have chosen. I’m not talking just about artists, film, or liberal arts majors. I am talking about teachers, attorneys, accountants and even doctors and engineers. Even if they are lucky enough to get a job with a high salary, the student loan payment is equally as high.

Marquette escapes Davidson, 59-58, in NCAA tourney LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Vander Blue had no doubt where he was going with the ball. The Marquette guard’s only concern was whether he’d have room to make it happen. Blue needed just four seconds to make his own path. Taking Jamil Wilson’s inbounds pass at midcourt with 5.5 seconds remaining, he drove left past Jake Cohen for a layup that completed a rally from nine points down and gave the third-seeded Golden Eagles an improbable 59-58 victory over No. 14 Davidson in Thursday’s second-round NCAA tournament game. “All I was thinking was, ‘if I get to the rim, I have to finish,’” said Blue, who scored seven of Marquette’s final 10 points including a 3-pointer with 28 seconds left. “I’m not ready to go home, I know our team’s not ready
to go home. “We got down by like seven, nobody ever panicked. ... Nobody missed a beat. We knew the game isn’t over until the clock hits zero.” Blue was there to ensure time ran out on Davidson, intercepting the lastditch inbounds pass to seal a remarkable rally and set off a noisy celebration among players and Golden Eagles fans at Rupp Arena. Marquette advanced to Saturday’s third round against Butler, a 68-56 winner over Bucknell It’s mostly thanks to Blue and Wilson. Blue finished with 16 points while Wilson added 14, but their consecutive 3-pointers brought Marquette to within 58-57 with 11 seconds left. The Golden Eagles then caught a huge break when De’Mon Brooks’ long inbounds pass went out of bounds at
midcourt with 5.5 seconds left, providing another opportunity. “De’Mon just threw it a little too far,” said Davidson forward Jake Cohen, who scored a game-high 20 points including 12 in the second half. “That’s how it goes sometimes.” On the game-winning play, Cohen added, “I got switched onto him and he got by me. Hindsight’s 20-20. It’s really easy to look back now and draw up something different. He made a big play and made a big shot.” The Golden Eagles (24-8) won for the fifth time in six games despite shooting 20 of 58 from the field (35 percent) including 4 of 15 from 3-point range. Marquette’s known more for its inside scoring than outside to begin with, but it got clutch shots from Blue and Wilson when the game seemed to be in Davidson’s hands.
A 9-1 run gave the Wildcats a 49-40 lead, and they seemed poised to seal the game thanks to Cohen — plus Brooks and Nik Cochran, who both scored 11. But Marquette kept plugging away and found itself within range in the final minutes. Then came perimeter jumpers from Blue and Wilson. Brooks’ turnover followed and Blue took over from there. “After my first 3, it felt like things were going good,” Wilson said. “Van put the ball in the basket. It just opened up, going back to what we know best.” The comeback spoiled Davidson’s upset bid and halted the nation’s longest winning streak at 17 games. The Wildcats entered the game shooting nearly 47 percent from the field, 37 percent from 3-point range and 80 percent from the free throw line.

Gonzaga pulls out 64-58 win against Southern SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Still don’t think Gonzaga deserved that No. 1 seed? There might be a few more doubters now. Entering the NCAA tournament top-seeded and top-ranked for the first time in program history, the Zags nearly made another kind of history Thursday — coming only a few minutes and a rimmed-out shot or two from becoming the first 1 to lose to a 16. Gonzaga prevailed 64-58 over Southern University in a game that wasn’t safely in hand until the final buzzer sounded. No. 1 seeds improved to 113-0 since the field was expanded to 64 teams in 1985. The Bulldogs (32-2) will play No. 9 Wichita State on Saturday. Kelly Olynyk led the Zags with 21 points, though it was a pair of
3-pointers — one by Gary Bell Jr., the next by Kevin Pagnos — that gave Gonzaga its small cushion after Southern (23-10) tied things at 56 with 3:45 left. Bell’s 3 made it 59-56 after Derick Beltran hit a 14-footer on the baseline to close out a 15-4 Southern run and tie the game. Beltran hit two free throws to cut the deficit to one, but Gonzaga responded by working the ball to Pagnos, whose 3 made it a fourpoint game. Yondarius Johnson and Malcom Miller both had open looks on the next possession for Southern but neither could convert. Pagnos (16 points) made two free throws with 14.3 seconds left to seal the deal. But when Zags coach Mark Few shook hands with
his counterpart, Roman Banks, at midcourt, it was hard to tell who won; Banks looked like he was doing the consoling. But it’s Southern going home — down in the archives next to the 1989 Princeton squad that nearly upset top-seeded Georgetown and East Tennessee State, which lost by one to No. 1 Oklahoma in the same tournament. It was a fitting start to March Madness 2013 — the capper to a season filled with upsets, shifts atop The Associated Press poll and no dominant team. Gonzaga’s critics felt the West Coast Conference champions got to No. 1 by default more than anything. The Zags shut out that talk and said they’d take their first game as
NCAA tournament front-runners the way they’d taken the previous 33. But they ran into a team in Southern, enrollment 6,900 out of Baton Rouge, La., and champions of the Southwestern Athletic Conference, that wasn’t intimidated by the Zags, but rather spent the season trying to emulate them. The Jaguars fell behind 7-0 over the first 3½ minutes, but reeled off eight straight points after that. For the rest of the afternoon, this looked nothing like a typical 1-16 matchup. Southern took away the high-low game between Olynyk and forward Elias Harris, frustrated the Zags relentlessly and, during one stretch early in the second half, blocked three of Gonzaga’s inside shots in the span of 48 seconds.

Last chance for Florida seniors to get own title AUSTIN (AP) — Kenny Boynton and Erik Murphy arrived at Florida not too long after the Gators had won consecutive national championships. They are down to their last chance to get one for themselves. Boynton and Murphy are part of the only Florida group to win consecutive outright Southeastern Conference regular-season titles, and the seniors helped cut down the nets after clinching the second
in their final home game earlier this month. They have been to the NCAA tournament every season, this time as a No. 3 seed in the South Regional. Except they haven’t been able to get Florida back to the Final Four, coming so bitterly close the last two years. “We want to leave that legacy of just being winners,” Murphy said. “We’ve just got to win every game we can.”

Jake Cohen all made 3-pointers in the Wildcats’ 12-2 start. Davidson’s defense was also effective against Marquette’s second chances, forcing the Golden Eagles to shoot off balance instead of spotting up. The Golden Eagles regrouped slightly with five straight points, but Cochran answered from beyond the arc to put the Wildcats ahead 15-7 with 12:19 left in the half. By the half, Marquette had closed to 25-23 and the next 10 minutes were tight, with six ties and seven lead changes before De’Mon Brooks’ two free throws put Davidson up 40-38. After Wilson’s free throw for Marquette, Tyler Kalinoski followed with a 3-pointer and Cochran added a bank to put the Wildcats up by six, leading to a Golden Eagles timeout with 9:24 left.
Their numbers weren’t as good on Thursday, but the Wildcats thought they had enough. “We emptied our tank today,” Davidson coach Bob McKillop said. “Credit Marquette, they made three plays down the stretch.” Marquette shared the regular reason Big East title with Louisville and Georgetown. But coach Buzz Williams has sought a more complete game from his team, stressing extra possessions through rebounding while minimizing turnovers. The Golden Eagles’ main goal going in was to create opportunities inside. Early on, though, they couldn’t hit from anywhere. As Marquette was missing 10 of its first 11 attempts, Davidson came out hot, especially from the perimeter. Chris Czerapowicz, J.P. Kuhlman and
