Greg Abbott, Texas attorney general, has announced he will accept campaign contributions in the form of bitcoins, according to an article by The Associated Press. Bitcoins, according to the article, were created in 2009 by a group named Satoshi Nakamoto to make transactions across nations. These cannot be taxed by the Internal Revenue Service, according to the article, as they a r e c o u n t e d a s p r o p e r t y, n o t legal tender. According to the article, this acceptance of the digital currency symbolizes Abbott’s acceptance of a free-market principle. Bitcoins, according to an article from The Associated Press, have historically been used within Deep Web, an area of the Internet often associated with illegal activities. After the busting of the Silk Road, an organization that existed inside Deep Web and advertised illegal drugs, weapons, currency and others, Bitcoins have struggled to gain popularity again, according to the article. According to the article, the acceptance of these coins in Abbott’s campaign will allow them to be sold to the general public without suspicion once again. ➤➤firstname.lastname@example.org
Texas town could rebuild plant after fatal blast WEST (AP) — The mayor of a Texas town where a fertilizer plant explosion killed 15 people says local officials are considering building a new one. West Mayor Tommy Muska acknowledged Thursday that the idea is highly controversial among local residents. But he notes that his central Texas town’s economy revolved around the West Fertilizer Co. before the facility was leveled by a fire and explosion a year ago.

As tuition costs continue to rise, students are being hit with financial woes that were not as common with their predecessors. According to the College Board, tuition at public colleges has risen 27 percent in the last five years, in addition to the 82 percent textbooks prices have risen in the past 11 years. Pamela Carrizales, unit coordinator for the department of parent and family relations, said many students come to talk to her about the Raider Relief Fund overwhelmed with their situation and lacking answers to their financial questions.

Addiction impacts patients, physicians alike By AMY CUNNINGHAM staff writer
Medical schools across the country frequently leave addiction and substance abuse off their curriculums each year. However, health care professionals often encounter addicts, whether it is a family member, a patient or themselves. The Texas Tech Health Sciences Center sends select students to study addiction at the Betty Ford Center’s Summer Institute for Medical Students (SIMS) in California, which requires student to learn through emersion, not through classroom participation, according to the center’s website. Simon Williams, HSC associate dean for academic affairs, said the learning program enables students to learn about addiction recovery in ways they are normally not taught in medical school. “I would go in as if I was a patient myself,” Sydney Reynolds, a fourth-year medical student from Coleman, who participated in the program last summer, said. “I would sit and talk to the women and learned about addiction. I had an 82-year-old woman and an 18-year-old woman. I had a highclass Australian lady, and then I had women who were just scraping by. Addiction really has nothing to do with how you were raised or what background you come from.” The experience taught her addiction has no boundaries, she said. While sitting in on an Alcoholics Anonymous
session, Williams said one of the patients looked at the group of medical students and said people like them caused him to be addicted to drugs. “It’s really important for our medical students to learn they can be part of the problem,” he said. “Unnecessary prescriptions of addictive drugs cause a lot of individuals to become addicted to those drugs. It’s really important we teach our medical students how to recognize the signs.” Medical schools across the country, including HSC, are trying to train future medical professionals to recognize the signs of addiction, Williams said. The problem, he said, is that many of the abusers can hide their addictions so well because they are physicians, nurses, dentists and other types of health care workers themselves. “Medicine is trying to cure patients of their ailments,” he said. “Well, it also tries to cure its own members of their ailments. One of the things we want our students to know is that they have some of the highest risks of substance abuse disorders.” Reynolds’ father is a doctor who suffered from alcohol abuse. Her father has remained sober for the past 19 years, Reynolds said, but she still learned about addiction from him. Williams said most students who participate do not have first-hand experience with addiction in their families. HSC continued on Page 2 ➤➤

Organization discourages pet sales for holiday Sorority hosts literacy week By DIEGO GAYTAN staff writer
The Texas Tech Feral Cat Coalition is discouraging the purchase of rabbits, “bunnies” and chicks as gifts for Easter. The coalition is a student organization, which oversees feral cats living on Tech’s campus and promotes the well being of a variety of animals, Lydia Kong, a junior psychology major from Fort Worth and president of the coalition, said. Families give rabbits to their children as gifts without being informed of the animal’s needs, she said. “Not a lot of people realize that bunnies actually can die from heart attacks because they can get scared,” she said. “If you don’t acclimate it into your house, it can be so stressed that it could die.” Kong said rabbits are not suitable pets for small children because they are very delicate animals. “If you hold them improperly and they struggle, especially with children, they break their own spine,”
she said. “That is why rabbits and bunnies in general aren’t safe for small children who don’t know how to take care of them.” Kong said the popular practice of dyeing chicks during Easter time could be harmful to the animal. “Farmers or chick providers dye the egg inside then the chick comes out purple, green or orange,” she said. “Essentially the dye is supposed to be harmless and the chick should be able to survive it, however, if done improperly, the chick will die within a week.” The colored dye is sprayed or injected into incubated eggs before they hatch, according to a New York Times article. Hamza Khalid, a senior biology and computer science major from Canton, Mich., said research should be conducted on the pet that will be purchase in order to make sure the animal will be taken care of. “Always do research before you buy the pet,” he said. “I’ve made a fair share of mistakes in the excitement of getting a pet myself, so it’s important to do research.”
Khalid said if a chick is purchased, temperature of the place in which the chick will be living should be monitored, and the chick should be placed on a diet to make sure its weight stays at a healthy level. “It’s important that the chick lives in a warm place,” he said. “You don’t want the temperature to be too hot.” If someone does purchase a rabbit for Easter, in order to avoid scaring the animal, it is important to know how to properly hold the animal, he said. “When you hold a rabbit you should support its bottom,” Khalid said. “You should also hold the rabbit close to your chest.” Kang said after Easter, many people who purchased a rabbit will neglect or abandon the animal. “Most animal shelters focused on dogs or cats,” she said. “After Easter, when there is an influx of rabbits being put in shelters, the shelters are not able to take care of them because they are at full capacity.”

This week, the Delta Omega Phi sorority hosted its first Literacy Through Unity Week philanthropy through numerous community events. The sorority’s final event of the week, Greek Feud, will take place tonight at 7:30 p.m. in the Escondido Theatre, with all profits going towards charity. “We think that children are our future,” Tiffany Nguyen, a junior nutritional science major from Richardson, said. “We think it’s important for everyone to get an education. It’s not a privilege, it’s something needed for everyone. We want everyone to have quality learning because it’s crucial.” On Monday, the sorority raised awareness about illiteracy by setting up a table outside of the Student Union building. In addition to receiving free donuts, Nguyen said participants could spin a wheel and earn prizes while learning about the significance of literacy.

Texas seizes polygamist group’s ranch ELDORADO (AP) — The secluded Texas ranch where followers of imprisoned polygamist Warren Jeffs lived in near isolation was seized by state agents on Thursday, nearly six years after FBI agents raided the property and removed hundreds of children amid child sex abuse allegations. The Texas Department of
Public Safety said its agents took possession of the Yearning For Zion Ranch near Eldorado. In a statement, DPS said only eight adults were still living on the West Texas property and agreed to leave after meeting with agents. DPS said authorities helped them vacate the ranch and take an inventory.

Annual Tech Art History Symposium capstone showcased student research By KAYLIN MCDERMETT Staff Writer
The School of Art recently presented the annual Art History Symposium, which gives art history majors a chance to present their senior research piece in front of a judge. Janis Elliot, associate professor in art history, said this symposium is the main experience of an art history student, and each student prepares thoroughly for the 20-minute presentation. “The capstone experience of the art history degree is the public presentation of the senior thesis research project at the Art History Symposium,” she said. “The three students who presented on Friday worked really hard all semester and rehearsed their presentations several times before the symposium.” The art history program is designed to promote awareness of the significance of visual art in

“A lot of students are nervous or intimidated,” she said, “and they’re really not sure how to ask for help in their situation. They usually have to pay off their rent so they don’t get evicted or they’re going without meals or have to pay off a utility bill, medical bill or pharmacy bills. Students have quite a few needs.” The Raider Relief Fund, she said, is a program designed for students experiencing financial crisis at Tech. She said the program loans students money to pay off debts or emergencies they may have so they can stay enrolled at the university. “The requirements to fill out the application are the student has to be a full-time either graduate or undergrad student and they do have to have at least a 2.0 GPA,” she said. “We really try to work with students

“Sydney’s prior experience with her dad obviously made her a perfect candidate to go to the Betty Ford Center,” he said. “But even with her prior experience, there was still a lot she was not aware of and not prepared for.” Reynolds did not know how to approach someone who may be an addict or how to deal with family members, she said. Medical students rarely get exposure to addiction diseases while in school, she said. “I knew from my family quite a bit about addiction,” Reynolds said, “but I didn’t know how it pertained to me as a physician. A lot of logistics and training go into it. Other than what I had learned growing up, I didn’t know
various historical cultures around the world, according to the School of Art’s website. At all levels of study, the art history area strives to make activities available that enhance the experience of art, such as access to art objects, guest lectures, study abroad opportunities and internships, according to the website. Elliot said the goal of art history is not to create new works of art but instead to analyze and research art from the past and present. “In art history we don’t make art,” she said. “We write about art of the past and present from various cultures and time periods. Our students take at least two courses in a focus area of study prior to writing the thesis in that area. That gives them the historical, methodological and theoretical background needed to develop and write their thesis.” Dorothy Chansky, an associate professor in the Department of Theatre and Dance, said she judged
each of the research pieces. Although the pieces were judged, the main purpose of the symposium was to allow students a chance to showcase the skills and knowledge they have acquired while pursuing their degree, she said. Esen Ogus, an assistant professor of ancient Mediterranean art history, said the event allows students to display all of the information and techniques they have learned while attending the School of Art. “For the art history majors, the event is a capstone experience where they display the skills that they acquired in college,” he said. “They show that they are able to do research in a library, write a research paper that involves their original contribution to the field and present the results of this research in public.” Amanda McCatherine, a senior art history major from Lampasas, presented her research paper titled An Interpretation of the Signifi-
cance of Cave Imagery in Association with Rulership Iconography and Scenes of Accession at Late Pre-classic Maya Sites. “I enjoyed participating in the Art History Symposium this year,” she said. “It was a great opportunity for the art history seniors to show off the research and hard work they have been doing throughout the semester. As one of the presenters, it was a great opportunity for me to share my passion with others.” Elliot said the senior art history students will benefit from events like the Art History Symposium as they pursue either graduate school or a new career. “They are now prepared to take their skills to a graduate program or to a job that requires research, writing and public presentation,” she said. “Our students also acquire skills in critical analysis, observation of details, self-discipline and time-management.”
when they come to us to explain their options, the process and really just build a relationship with them.” The fund, Carrizales said, is currently switching from being a product of parent and family relations to being a part of the Red to Black program and will be available to students June 1. Red to Black is an organization at Tech that helps students with a multitude of different financial needs, including budgeting assistance, Ashley Bentley, senior personal financial planning major from Amarillo and a student involved in Red to Black, said. “Our goal is to get students prepared to start thinking about making a budget,” she said. “We start off by having students track their expenses. Then they come back to us and make a budget. We help them see that they really have money for everything they need. They just have to be able to stick
to a budget. Bentley said it is important to be aware of events happening that may help students save money, that way they will not have to decide between food or school. “There are a lot of different events on campus, and if you just read the announcements, you’ll get free lunches,” she said. “Then you’ll be spending a lot less money and will have a lot more to divert to school costs.” Both Carrizales and Bentley said it is important as a student to be able to reach out and ask for help when experiencing financial problems. Red to Black works with peer-topeer advising, Bentley said, which she thinks makes it a more open environment because those asking for help are talking to students who have most likely experienced the same problems before. “Students often keep these problems in and experience hard-
ships,” Carrizales said. “That way we don’t know what’s going on and we can’t help. We want to encourage students to reach out for help so they don’t have to live through these problems.” Other universities, according to an Associated Press article, are using different methods to combat these rising student financial issues. Food pantries, located on the college campuses, are being run and used by students to decrease the costs student have to pay to eat, according to the article. “Money is a very personal topic,” Bentley said. “If something’s going on or something’s going wrong, you don’t want to admit it right away. We’re here to let students know that these things happen, and it’s not something to be embarrassed about. We can help them and give them solutions, and they don’t go hungry.”
that much. As I went through med school and encountered patients with the disease, I didn’t know how to approach them and address that subject.” Even today, Williams said the general public and physicians alike largely recognize substance abuse as a choice and not a disease. Substance abuse disorder is a chronic disease, he said, that cannot be entirely controlled by the addict and will impact them forever. Every day is a struggle to ensure a relapse does not occur, he said. “For the addict, this is the rest of their life,” Williams said. “We only spend a week there with them, but this is a total immersion project. The main point is for the students to learn this is a disease. It’s remarkable that even a trained medical profes-
sion often does not recognize addiction as such.” Loved ones often serve as enablers, he said, even though they must let go and realize they cannot stop the addiction. While at the Betty Ford Center, medical students learn how to deal with family dynamics when treating addicted patients, according to the center’s website. “It really is a family disease,” Reynolds said. “While they may not suffer from addiction, a lot of problems that come from having a family member who suffers from addiction can cause medical problems in itself. If a family member keeps worrying, they carry that burden on them. The burden leads to obesity, which leads to hypertension, which can then lead to diabetes.” HSC students receive funding from numerous donors, including lawyer Jay Bonds. Bonds specifically wants students to partake in this program because he is a recovering addict himself who feels his addiction could have been caught early, Williams said. “He had seen many physicians over many years who had not recognized his addiction,” he
said. “Many of them were primary care physicians. We sort of think psychiatrists are the ones to treat this, but the fact is, most people who have an addiction are not going to see a psychiatrist first.” Only HSC and two other schools send a group for an entire week to the center, Williams said. Two faculty members also accompany the students to learn more about addiction and how to implement it into the curriculum. He hopes to increase the education of students to more than just medical students, he said. “We want to expand this to include the other schools,” Williams said. “We need to recognize that nurses and pharmacists, who have tremendous access to drugs, are also at increased risk. We need to expand our education program to include those to increase and improve health care for those suffering from addictions.” Because she has worked with addicts in a real life setting, Reynolds said she understands substance abuse better now and may be able to help future patients she encounters.

Experts speak on Easter weekend safety By TAYLOR PEACE Staff Writer
It feels like it has been far too long since spring break, and summer could not come soon enough for many students at Texas Tech. Many of these students are taking full advantage of the three-day weekend right around the corner. Although this weekend will be filled with family, friends and laughter, students should keep in mind the safety precautions they need to take in order to make it back to school Tuesday in one piece. Paul Cotter, manager in Environmental Health and Safety, said it is best for students to plan ahead when they know they are about to travel long distances by making sure their cars are maintained and cell phones are charged, and by letting
someone know when they are leaving. “Things happen that could be outside of a student’s control, whether they think it would happen to them or not,” Cotter said. “The best thing to do is always take precaution and be extra prepared just in case one gets stuck in such a situation.” Cotter said anything can happen while traveling home for Easter break, and students should be aware of what to do in case of emergencies. If a car breaks down, pull over to the side of the road to avoid getting piled up by other cars, and make sure to call someone trustworthy, he said. “Especially if a student is traveling a long distance, then they need to fully prepare themselves,” Cotter said. “No one wants to be stuck in the middle of nowhere with no cell phone, no gas and no way of getting help.”
Cotter said another safety precaution students should take while being away for break is to not drink and drive. Although students think they are invincible, sometimes tragedies come out of nowhere when they least expect it, he said. “If a student is in a situation where they are driving their friends from a party and have had too much to drink, don’t even think about getting behind the wheel,” Cotter said. “The worst thing a student could do is drink and drive. That is putting him or her and their friends all at risk for their lives.” According to the Texas Tech Police Department website, trying to drive during daylight hours, if possible, is best, and keeping the car gas levels above the halfway mark is also important.

‘Scrubs’ actor to appear in comedy show By AMY CUNNINGHAM Staff Writer
The Health Sciences Center School of Medicine class of 2017 will host Robert Maschio, an actor and comedian best known for his portrayal of Dr. Todd Quinlan on “Scrubs,” at 8 p.m. tonight in the HSC Academic Classroom building, Room 100. Matt Driver, class of 2017 president and a first year medical student from Houston, said plans for the event began in October. “Some people started cutting
the sleeves off their scrubs in our anatomy class,” he said. “Every Monday, you wear your sleeveless scrubs and we’d call it “The Todd” Monday, because the character on the show would do the same thing. It just took on this life of its own.” Someone tweeted a photo of the students, he said, and Maschio saw the photo. After corresponding online, the actor agreed to come to Lubbock for a show. The show will mainly serve as a stress-relieving event for students, Driver said, to take a
reach safe areas in well-lighted locations, according to the website, and avoid short cuts which could potentially take one off the main road into deserted remote areas. If a student’s car breaks down, they should stop only when and where they think it is safe to stop, the website stated. Put flashers on, wait inside and consider placing a white handkerchief on the front left window, or side facing traffic, for extra safety. According to the website, if someone stops to help, other than the police, it is important to not get out of the car. Keep doors locked, and windows rolled up, leaving only enough window space to communicate. Make sure the police officer shows proper identification and be on guard at all times. Cliff Harris, interim director of Environmental Health and Safety, said to
ensure one will stay awake, get a good night’s rest the day before traveling. If a student cannot get a good sleep the night before, then drink anything that has caffeine in it, such as coffee or soda, Harris said, and even eating something before traveling will help students stay alert and prepared. “If a student is traveling by themselves and starts to get tired, there is nothing wrong with pulling over on the side of the road and taking a quick nap,” Harris said. “If students are traveling in groups, they could talk to each other or even switch off drivers to make sure they don’t doze off behind the wheel.” Another precaution is to check the weather before traveling to be prepared for any horrible weather circumstances, Harris said. If there is a tornado, students should
pull off on the side of the road and try to get in a ditch or under a bridge, Harris said, because if they stay in the car, a tornado could pick them up like a twig and spit them out anywhere, which would kill someone instantly. “The best thing to do in a bad weather situation is to pull off and take cover,” Harris said. “Driving in horrible weather is definitely asking for trouble.” Harris said anything could happen, regardless of what one thinks. He said in order to ensure students’ safety, they need to be extra careful while traveling and play it safe. “Just make sure to be smart when on the road,” Harris said. “Accidents happen in the blink of an eye and if students aren’t fully prepared beforehand, something horrible could happen in minutes.” ➤➤email@example.com
break from studying for exams and to have a good laugh. “I’m looking forward to his stand-up routine,” Gus Wilson, a first year medical student from Corpus Christi, said. “He did that before Scrubs, too. He’s going to tell stories from his time on the cast and do a Q and A segment.” Any proceeds will go toward the class of 2017 to fund various class projects, Driver said. Tickets can be purchased online at ttuhsc.edu/studentservices for $25 each. ➤➤firstname.lastname@example.org
Garcia Marquez, Nobel laureate, dies at age 87 MEXICO CITY (AP) — Nobel laureate Gabriel Garcia Marquez crafted intoxicating fiction from the fatalism, fantasy, cruelty and heroics of the world that set his mind churning as a child growing up on Colombia’s Caribbean coast. One of the most revered and influential writers of his generation, he brought Latin America’s charm and maddening contradictions to life in the minds of millions and became the best-known practitioner of “magical realism,” a blending of fantastic elements into portrayals of daily life that made the extraordinary seem almost routine. In his works, clouds of yellow butterflies precede a forbidden lover’s arrival. A heroic liberator of nations dies alone, destitute and far from home. “A Very Old Man With Enormous Wings,” as one of his short stories is called, is spotted in a muddy courtyard. Garcia Marquez’s own epic story ended Thursday, at age 87, with his death at his home in southern Mexico City, according to two people close to the family who spoke on condition of anonymity out of respect for the family’s privacy. Known to millions simply as “Gabo,” Garcia Marquez was widely seen as the Spanish language’s most popular writer since Miguel
de Cervantes in the 17th century. His extraordinary literary celebrity spawned comparisons with Mark Twain and Charles Dickens. His flamboyant and melancholy works — among them “Chronicle of a Death Foretold,” ‘’Love in the Time of Cholera” and “Autumn of the Patriarch” — outsold everything published in Spanish except the Bible. The epic 1967 novel “One Hundred Years of Solitude” sold more than 50 million copies in more than 25 languages. With writers including Norman Mailer and Tom Wolfe, Garcia Marquez was also an early practitioner of the literary nonfiction that would become known as New Journalism. He became an elder statesman of Latin American journalism, with magisterial works of narrative non-fiction that included the “Story of A Shipwrecked Sailor,” the tale of a seaman lost on a life raft for 10 days. He was also a scion of the region’s left. Shorter pieces dealt with subjects including Venezuela’s largerthan-life president, Hugo Chavez, while the book “News of a Kidnapping” vividly portrayed how cocaine traffickers led by Pablo Escobar had shred the social and moral fabric of his native Colombia, kidnapping members of its elite. In 1994, Garcia Marquez
founded the Iberoamerican Foundation for New Journalism, which offers training and competitions to raise the standard of narrative and investigative journalism across Latin America. But for so many inside and outside the region, it was his novels that became synonymous with Latin America itself. When he accepted the Nobel prize in 1982, Garcia Marquez described the region as a “source of insatiable creativity, full of sorrow and beauty, of which this roving and nostalgic Colombian is but one cipher more, singled out by fortune. Poets and beggars, musicians and prophets, warriors and scoundrels, all creatures of that unbridled reality, we have had to ask but little of imagination, for our crucial problem has been a lack of conventional means to render our lives believable.”

Students should wait until after college to get married Alexis Nelson not be there if a couple was to wait until a few years after college to marry. College is meant for gaining an education so a person can have a successful career without having to depend on their parents for money or for a place to live in the future. Independence helps define an individual and helps them to be able to take on the financial aspect of a marriage once they get to a point in their life where they are ready to take that on. According to an article on npr. org, the average age of couples

People must take necessary safety precautions online By ISD EDITORIAL BOARD iowa sTaTe Daily (iowa sTaTe U.)
Everyone takes their passwords very seriously. People tend to get a little nervous about other people even using their computer because they want to keep their emails and other messages private. Nearly anything can be done on your computer. You can check your bank account, shop and pay bills. The very way we see Internet security may change, however. According to those who found the bug, Codenomicon Defensics, the Heartbleed Bug is a serious vulnerability in the popular OpenSSL cryptographic software library. This weakness allows stealing the information protected, under normal conditions, by the SSL/ TLS encryption used to secure the Internet. SSL/TLS provides communication security and privacy over the Internet for applications such as web, email, instant messaging [IM] and some virtual private networks [VPNs]. This could mean that the Internet that we have learned to love and trust is not so trustworthy after all. Everyday we use encryption technology when we are on the Internet. There are passwords or a series of questions to almost everything online and we have come to believe that we are the only people in the world who know the answers to these questions. It seems that in some cases, we have been wrong. We might get amused or slightly mad when someone gets on our Facebook accounts and gives a funny status, but now there is proof that much more malicious hackers could have potentially gotten to more significant things, such as bank account information, through the Heartbleed bug. When an attack happens, as much as 64 kilobytes can be hacked at one time. This also leaves your accounts more
vulnerable to be attacked multiple times. According to The Washington Post, a group of skilled hackers were asked to get into the Heartbleed system and try to seek out information. It took as little as two hours for information from multiple individuals to be compromised. In a world where people are becoming more and more reliant on the Internet, it is scary to think that the websites we thought were secure are really not. It is like having your identity stolen on a macro level. As students, it is important that we start taking precautions to protect ourselves. Although the Heartbleed bug has been compromising information for nearly two years under the radar, it is never too late to try to protect yourself. Of course, we should not all try to reset our passwords at once. If you are worrying about whether or not your system has been breached, contact your Internet provider or start changing passwords at a slower rate. The Heartbleed bug does not mean the end of the Internet. It should simply mean that people need to be more careful about what kind of information they put out there. Worry about your most important passwords, like those used for your bank and places that may have your credit card information, rather than whether someone hacked your Facebook or Twitter accounts. It is also important to remember that not every single system has been compromised. The Internet has never been considered a safe place, and as college students, we should all know that. We should know that anything we put on the Internet could potentially be seen. This is not a warning to tell people that the Internet is bad and we should stay off of it forever. But sometimes we all need to be reminded that we cannot always trust the Internet with our most important information.
getting married is 28. The same article also states the brain does not fully mature until the age of 25. With the average age of a graduate obtaining a four-year degree being around 22 or 23 years old, that brain maturity is still at least two years after a college student graduates. Gaining that independence and maturity helps a person to be able to deal with the hardships that can make up a marriage. One’s time in college is the period in which young adults ought to date and figure out what type of qualities they find appealing or unappealing in a person. It’s the
time in life in which students are supposed to have fun and meet plenty of people. Dating helps people to figure out the type of person they want to spend the rest of their life with. How someone responds to certain situations and figuring out how you respond helps to know what works and what doesn’t in a relationship. On top of the aspects of maturity and figuring out personality preferences, marriage should also be held off until after graduating because of the stress of classes. Trying to maintain high GPAs to keep certain scholarships can take
College is meant for gaining an education so a person can have a successful career ...
ollege is the time in a young person’s life during which he or she begins to discover what defines them as an individual. This period in life is meant for learning how to be a successful, independent person and for gaining the necessary education to obtain a decent career in the real world. However, there are some people who believe college ought to be the time during which students should be focused on finding spouses. According to Susan Patton, author of “Marry Smart,” women should be spending the majority of their time searching for a spouse instead of getting an education while at college. The problem with that idea, though, is that marrying young can not only force young adults to quickly grow up, but also cause strain on a marriage that might
a lot of time away from a marriage. For example, Texas Tech’s Presidential scholarship has a minimum renewal GPA of 3.0 for the lowest reward sum, according to the financial aid website. Studying for difficult classes and trying to maintain good grades can add stress to a person’s life that can affect the way they respond to things. The stress of finances can also affect marriages and make them more difficult during college. According to a CNN article, taking on more jobs to cover expenses can also add further strain to a relationship. Those who have to take care of tuition themselves would suddenly have the financial burden of college costs, housing costs and other expenses on top of all the added stress previously mentioned. While marriage is not neces-
sarily the best idea during college years, it should also be mentioned that those who can handle it ought to be applauded. If you find the one for you, then do what makes you happy. While an education is essential for getting a decent job that can lead to a financially sound life, one’s personal happiness should also be a factor. To those who have found that special someone and can handle everything entailed with a marriage and college, you are respected. For those who have not found that special someone, don’t be discouraged from finding love, but rather wait to marry until you are ready to take on that challenge.

Colbert’s move may cause personality change By CAROLINA TREVINO
The Daily CoUgar (U. hoUsTon)
I am a huge Stephen Colbert fan. Just a few weeks ago, I wrote an article defending his satirical show, “The Colbert Report,” in light of a hasty tweet that was made through his show’s Twitter account. The hashtag #CancelColbert floated around Twitter, demanding the end to the eight-year nightly news show on the basis of a “racist” tweet. Ironically, the people who backed this idea will get what they wanted. Just last week, Colbert was announced to take over “The Late Show with David Letterman.” Although “The Late Show” was an innovative competitor against Jay Leno when it first premiered, it has become a source of awkward, aged humor. Letterman’s jokes are a lot like his show’s set: They appear not to have changed much since the show began in 1993. I’ve been saying and hoping that
Letterman would retire soon, so when he announced it last week, I was ecstatic. It was the same joy I felt with Leno’s retirement; I was excited to see what could be brought to the table that was new and innovative. It’s not every day someone steps down from a gig that’s lasted more than 20 years, especially not one that was neck-and-neck with “The Tonight Show” for a very long time. Somehow, in the midst of all of the talk about replacements, Colbert’s name came up multiple times. However, the idea seemed strange every single time. One would wonder why a man who has an incredible thing going for him would give it all up. For the last nine years, “The Colbert Report” has crafted something absolutely magical, something many had never seen created so masterfully. It’s the perfect combination of humor and intelligence; it pushes the limits. It makes me think about what could be different about myself, my elected officials and even my next-door
neighbor. Somehow, giving that up for something as blah as “The Late Show” seems ridiculous. Colbert is just as much a part of “The Colbert Report” as the “Report” is part of him. He has become one with his satirical character, so much that it’d hard to know what he sounds like when he’s not pretending to be a crazy conservative news show host. This seems to be one of the biggest issues when it comes to Colbert’s “Late Show” takeover. If Colbert drops the act, there may not be much left of him. When Colbert finally does take the reins in 2015, I am unsure whether his audience will accept him. The Comedy Central audience that does follow him to CBS will likely be disappointed, as they’ll miss the tongue-in-cheek humor and his lovable jerk attitude. They’ll miss the edgy jokes that targeted conservatives, the ridiculous impromptu Daft Punk sequences and maybe even the traditional segments like “Yahweh or No Way” or
“Cheating Death with Dr. Stephen T. Colbert, D.F.A.” CBS chose Colbert because he was already a popular host with many fans and followers. However, for Colbert and CBS, this move seems almost like a cheap move — they’re both losing some major opportunities. For Colbert, he’s not only giving up an incredible show, but he’s giving up a character that many have grown to love. For CBS, it’s missing the opportunity to put someone truly innovative in Letterman’s spot. In a world where a guy named Jimmy is more likely to get a lateshow gig than a person of color or a woman, it would be sweet to give someone other than a white guy a chance. For example, Tina Fey could definitely pull her own weight on a late show. Hopefully it all works out for Colbert, because he’s one of the best comedians out there. If not, Comedy Central will surely keep his 11:30 p.m. slot nice and warm, ready for him to come on back home.
Students should not feel pressured to take internship in summer By OLIVIA BERKELEY The Daily Texan (U. Texas)
Recently, a particularly annoying question has been swirling around campus. “What are your summer plans?” my friends ask. Unfortunately, my answer is often met with judgment. When asked how I plan to spend my summer — nannying full-time and taking one measly online course — I am confronted with questioning looks. By some standards, it would appear that I am wasting a threemonth period designed to further my education and get job experience. But my summer plans should not indicate that I am any less motivated or driven than the next person. I just don’t succumb to the peer pressure surrounding the need for excellence. Monica Jackson, a Moody College of Communication career adviser, said she tells students who express concerns about finding jobs after they graduate that “it really just depends on how prepared the student is with their transition, the number of internships they have had, the research they have done and how aggressive they are with their job search.” When students ask Jackson how they should spend their summers, she says it “depends on their situation and if they have done an internship in the previous fall and spring academic year. If so, taking the summer off is acceptable.” “For most [students] depending on [their] major, taking advantage of an internship during the summer … would be beneficial,” Jackson said. College is a competitive atmosphere, and I completely understand why students forsake fun in order to make their resumes more impressive. Many college students believe summers should be used to take classes, work, get an internship and forgo relaxation to make themselves more employable individuals. In a competitive environment such as UT’s, having a high GPA and belonging to student organizations is not enough to be successful after graduation. The goal of getting a degree from UT is to have a career, and having internships is viewed as the way to
attain one. “This summer I’d like to experience the design side of [civil engineering], to understand the logic concerning the planning of a building,” civil engineering sophomore Chi-Chih Chen said. “I’m not sure if I’ll get paid this time for my work, but I’m eager to learn nonetheless. [My motivation to intern is] more interest-driven.” It’s a student’s prerogative to choose how to spend his or her summer, but to treat it exclusively as a time to increase employability is neglecting to acknowledge an entire subset of students who use their summer time differently. I encourage everyone to re-evaluate the motivations behind how they spend their summers. If you want to be a camp counselor but feel the pressure of your peers influencing you to seek out a prestigious internship instead, explore that dynamic. I may be old-fashioned — and doomed to be unemployed for life — but I believe people should do what they love. If that happens to be a full-time job or resume-boosting internship, then so be it. Of course, it is hard to ignore the benefits of spending summer working
and interning rather than tanning and sleeping. Using the three months between the end and start of school is invaluable in terms of career exploration, especially with half of college graduates working jobs that aren’t worth the prices of their degrees. About 48 percent of employed U.S. college graduates are in job positions that the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics suggests require less than a four-year college education. According to The Huffington Post and a May 2013 study from the Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce, the overall unemployment rate for recent graduates is 7.9 percent. So, as college students lose faith in an unreliable job market, internships and summers spent frantically improving resumes are understandably becoming the baseline expectation. “I think that working over the summer is a great way to advance both [your] education and your own future marketability — you can learn so much from a summer internship and sharpen your resume at the same time,” said Travis Lenz, an electrical engineering sophomore who will intern at Cadac
Group in Houston this summer. “It’s not always a bad idea to relax during the summer and prepare for the next year — whether it be work or education. I just decided to take this summer as an opportunity to get a head start in the [engineering] world.” We will all fall victim to the rat race at some point in time, but I urge everyone to make sure it is for the right reasons. College is one of the few times in which we get to pick and choose what we want to do and shape our classes and jobs to what we are interested in, and summertime should be no exception. Instead of judging one another based on the contents of our summer agendas, we should be encouraging each other to seek out opportunities that excite, entertain and challenge us. There are numerous summers during the college experience, and spending one away from a work environment isn’t all that bad. Catastrophizing the implications of taking a summer off is not a productive use of time and is certainly something I am tired of hearing about. The decision to craft your summer as you see fit is entirely yours. Don’t let anybody tell you otherwise.

Tech track to compete in Mt. SAC Relays
Follow The DT on Twitter
For all your Tech news and sports
By DAWIT HAILE Staff Writer
Texas Tech track and field experienced another rise in the Week 2 computer rankings Tuesday, according to the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association. The Red Raiders ascended to No. 8 and the Lady Raiders to No. 16 in their respective standings. Tech coach Wes Kittley said the attention is nice, but his attention is focused on the Mt. SAC Relays in Walnut, Calif. The relays feature many track and field programs from the west coast, such as the University of Southern California and University of California, Los Angeles, Kittley said. Tech will get a firsthand look at the West Region brethren it is expected to face at the NCAA West Preliminaries. “It’s also normally really good weather,” Kittley said, ”so you have good marks cause you have good weather, and as you know, we’ve been beaten up by the wind lately.” Along with the luxury of pleasant weather, Kittley appreciates the chance to pit the team against elite competition comparable to the Texas Relays at this stage of the season, he said. He expects Mt. SAC to foster continued improvement since the team overall is in better shape than earlier in the season. Tech senior distance runner Kennedy Kithuka said the work he has invested to improve his conditioning assures him he will do well in his first 5,000 meter race this season. “In every race, everything begins with practice. If my practice goes well, I know I will able to go there and do great,” Kithuka said. “My practice has been (going) very well compared to last year.” The training Kithuka has gone through has helped him pick up the tempo he thinks is needed to run well in this event, he said. There is no doubt in his mind he is prepared for his first go at this event this season. Indoor season is much in the past for Kithuka and Tech. He is still, however, the 2013 NCAA Indoor 5,000-meter

champion, according to Tech Athletics. Kithuka owns experience regarding the relays, since he competed there in 2012, he said. He remembers not feeling adequately prepared. “So when I go there this Friday and Saturday, I expect a lot of (redemption) for me and a lot of good performances,” Kithuka said. Leading up to the relays, Kittley prevented a few premier athletes on the team, such as junior sprinter Cierra White, sophomore hurdler/jumper Le’Tristan Pledger, sophomore jumper Bradley Adkins and junior jumper JaCorian Duffield, from competing in the ACU Wes Kittley Invitational. The week off from competition was to provide those athletes rest, Kittley said, since none of those athletes have been able to indulge in rest following the conclusion
of indoor season because they qualified for the 2014 NCAA Indoor Championships. Kittley feels this rest will provide these athletes with the energy to perform at the level they are accustomed to, he said. White said she valued the rest. However, she did not only use it to regain energy. “I worked on a lot of technical things this past weekend during practice and while people were gone,” White said, “so I am really excited to see how it pays off.” White attributes the success she has previously enjoyed at Mt. SAC to the atmosphere and the amount of elite athletes and pros in attendance, she said. These elements prompt her to put her best foot forward, and she expects nothing to change during this weekend. Every Red Raider and Lady Raider at the relays will attempt to put their best foot forward when they compete Friday

Red Raiders escape with win against Panthers By DIEGO GAYTAN Staff Writer
The Texas Tech baseball team pulled off a narrow 4-3 victory in its first game of a three-game series against the Prairie View A&M Panthers. Te c h f r e s h m a n p i t c h e r Ryan Moseley made his first career start in the game against the Panthers. Moseley pitched six complete innings, while giving up one run on six hits with one strikeout. Tech baseball coach, Tim Tadlock, said he although he was pleased with Moseley’s performance, there are some improvements which could be made. “I thought his last two innings were really good,” he said. “To give us six innings a night, we are more than pleased with that, a little bit of work to do for him, but he’ll keep getting better.” The Red Raiders took an early 2-0 lead over the Panthers with a two run homerun
in the bottom of the first inning from Tech sophomore first baseman Eric Gutierrez. The home run was Gutierrez’s seventh of the season. The next two runs of the game would come from sophomore left fielder Tyler Neslony after he hit a two-run double into center field to give Tech a 4-0 lead in the bottom of the fifth inning. The Panthers began their surge late against the Red Raiders when freshman right fielder Cody Den Beste, scored in top of the sixth inning on a single from senior third baseman Gregg Salcido. Salcido recorded all three RBIs for the Panthers at the top of the seventh inning after he singled up the middle to bring the Panthers one run away from the Red Raiders. Tadlock said Prairie View put up a good fight and made Tech work to get the win. “I think you tip your hat to
Prairie,” he said. “They played a great game, they pitched good and got a big hit there in the seventh and just did a good job and competed.” Tech junior pitcher Dominic Moreno relieved sophomore relief pitcher Dalton Brown in the bottom of the seventh inning after he gave up one hit and two walks. Moreno said he was able to pitch well against Prairie View batters once he started using his slider. “I came out the next few innings and really just started working my slider,” he said. “I think they had trouble picking it up, and really that was the key to my success.” Moreno picked up the save for the Red Raiders after pitching two and one third scoreless innings. Tech will finish out the series against the Panthers on Friday at 6:37 p.m. and Saturday at 2 p.m. ➤➤email@example.com

Whitaker signs spring class Ellis plays key role in playoff berth Texas Tech women’s basketball coach Candi Whitaker announced the signing of four players in the first day of the late signing period for the 2014-2015 season, according to a news release from Tech Athletics. The newest Lady Raiders include Ryann Bowser, Tatiana Grant, Jocelyn Mousty and Jamie Roe. All four are junior college transfers. Whitaker said the transfers bring much needed qualities to the team. “These four bring great experience and qualities to fill our immediate roles and needs for our team,” she said in the release. “Each of them has excelled at the junior college level and can impact our program right away. I really like the toughness and competitiveness that this signing class brings, and
we can’t wait to get to work.” The four new signees join Ionna Mckenzie, Dayo Olabode, Courtney VacWHITAKER cher and Rayven Brooks, who all signed with Tech in the fall. Bowser is a 5-foot 5-inch guard that led Highland Community College to a 33-3 record last season. She picked Tech over offers from Baylor and Illinois State. Whitaker said Bowser will be a leader for the team on and off the court. “(Bowser) is one of the most competitive players that I’ve watched,” Whitaker said. “She has a fantastic presence on the court
and will immediately bring leadership and toughness to our team. I’m really excited about all the intangibles she has at point guard.” Grant is a 5-foot 8-inch guard and was the second leading scorer in NJCAA Division I with 27.4 points per game. She comes to Tech ranked as the No. 24 player in the country, according to JumpOffPlus.com Jocelyn Mousty is a 6-foot 3-inch center who averaged 9.4 points and 6.5 rebounds per game last season. She chose Tech over Oklahoma and Florida. The fourth transfer, Roe, is a 5-foot 10-inch forward and a two-time MVP of the Arizona Juco Regional Tournament. She is ranked as the No. 5 small forward in the country, according to JumpOffPlus.com. ➤➤firstname.lastname@example.org
DALLAS (AP) — Monta Ellis had just missed a jumper that could have lifted Dallas out of a matchup with top-seeded San Antonio in the first round of the playoffs. His reaction to playing a team the Mavericks haven’t beaten in more than two years was typical of the confident guard: simple, understated, defiant. “The standings is 0-0,” Ellis said after Wednesday night’s 106-105 overtime loss at Memphis with the No. 7 seed in the Western Conference on the line. Ellis’ first season in Dallas has been all about shrugging off the skeptics. His offensive efficiency was in steady decline, so he had his best shooting season since he was a 25-point scorer for Golden State. He couldn’t play nice with others, so he settled for being Dirk
Nowitzki’s sidekick except for games that he simply took over in the fourth quarter. He was coming off a joyless playoff season in Milwaukee, so he picked a franchise and coach he thought would make him happy again. Even if Ellis goes down in a first-round sweep by the Spurs the same way he did with the Bucks against Miami a year ago, he likes what he sees in his makeover as he wraps up his ninth season and gets ready for the playoff opener Sunday in San Antonio. “I had to grow up and accept some of the things that was going on around me that I can control, which is my attitude,” Ellis said. “Be more positive and put myself around positive people. Being around this organization and really this group of guys got me back into love with basketball.”
Ellis had his best moment late in the first year of the three-year deal he signed last summer worth between $25 and $30 million. The Mavericks were about to squander a chance to wrap up their playoff spot at home against Phoenix when he sparked a rally from a double-digit deficit with 3-point shooting that got Nowitzki going, too. He finished with a season-high 37 points. Ellis almost did it again in the finale against the Grizzlies, scoring 14 of his 18 points in the fourth quarter and overtime, including a 3 that forced the extra period. Ellis was coach Rick Carlisle’s selection with Dallas trailing by a point on the final inbounds play, coming off a pick and missing a buzzer-beating jumper that would have sent the Mavericks to Oklahoma City instead.
