Honor society president wins national award Spencer Key, president of the Texas Tech chapter of Sigma Delta Pi, the Hispanic honor society, and a bilingual education doctoral student from Jourdanton, was awarded the Gabriela Mistral Award for excellence in academics, Spanish and for active involvement in the chapter. Comfort Pratt, the society’s adviser, said Key has exceptional leadership qualities and has been dedicated to the organization. “She is willing to do whatever it takes in order to achieve our goals and looks for opportunities to create more programs that will benefit the community,” she said. Key said she is proud of what her organization has accomplished. “I am truly honored to receive this award and have been very blessed to be a part of such an amazing organization,” she said. “I have never been part of an honors organization that is so dedicated to serving the community.”
Mayor accused of discrimination By KAITLIN BAIN Staff Writer
At 7:58 a.m. Thursday, Daan Liang, president of the Texas Tech Chinese Faculty and Staff association and assistant professor, sent an open letter to Lubbock Mayor Glen Robertson accusing him of making unsubstantiated accusations against Gary Zheng, chief executive officer and president of Lubbock Power and Light. The letter compares the accusations to a past incident in which accusations were made against Wen Ho Lee, a former
According to a Texas Tech news release, the university will be home to The Remnant Trust collection, a large collection of original, early-written works on individual liberty. The collection consists of first edition pieces about liberty and human dignity and will be housed at the Southwest Collection and Special Collections Library and the Museum of Tech, according to the release. The collection includes famous works such as the Magna Carta, the first edition of the King James Bible, Galileo’s dialogues and the first printing of the Emancipation Proclamation, according to the release. The Remnant Trust is currently housed in Winona Lake, Ind., according to the release, and routinely loans pieces out to universities and museums across the nation. Pieces of the collection were first displayed at Tech in 2012 and attracted a crowd of 70,000 visitors, according to the release. Although pieces will continue to be on display around the nation, they will primarily be housed at Tech. ➤➤firstname.lastname@example.org

nuclear scientist at the Los Alamos National Laboratory, asserting he was a Chinese spy. Lee was later found not guilty and the judge involved in the case apologized to Lee ROBERTSON based on the way case was handled. “We hope that Dr. Zheng’s experience will not become our local version of the
Wen Ho Lee case,” Liang said in the letter to Robertson. Charles Dunn, attorney and member of the Electric Utility Board, replied to the letter and said in his reply the nature of the scrutiny revolves around Zheng’s high profile position as CEO and has no roots in racial matters. He said in his opinion, Zheng has not exhibited excellent job performance, but it is unknown what action the EUB will take. “To illustrate this relationship, I point to the difference between your (Liang) job at Texas Tech and the job of Kliff Kingsbury.
Your job performance receives little public scrutiny outside of your students, your department and the College of Engineering,” he said in the letter. “coach Kingsbury is in the news almost every day. Although coach Kingsbury does not take the field on Saturdays, he is the face of the program and he is the person that is held responsible when the team loses.” Robertson also said he is concerned and troubled about the fact that the letter brings up race.

Event raises awareness about rape, sexual assault By HANNAH HIPP Staff Writer
Women and men alike rallied to raise awareness about rape and sexual assault during Take Back the Night on Thursday at Memorial Circle. Jeanne Haggard, co-organizer of the event, said the facts surrounding rape are often misrepresented. “It’s a myth that if you walk alone at night in a dark alley, a stranger is going to rape you,” Haggard said, “because statistically, that’s untrue.” In reality, she said, the rapist or assailant is someone the victim knows. April is sexual assault awareness month, she said, and so the event is typically hosted in April. Participants listened to three speakers, marched from memorial circle to Fuzzy’s Taco Shop and back and then came together for a speak out circle and drum circle. “This is a way for women to take back the streets,” Haggard said, “and show they can walk around if they want to.”
One in five women in the U.S. will be sexually assaulted at some point, according to a White House 2014 report on rape and sexual assault. In addition, 98 percent of perpetrators are male, according to the report. “There is a big need to make campuses safer,” Haggard said. “We hold this event to bring awareness and educate people.” Sexual assault and rape are problems in all colleges across the U.S., she said. Cases of sexual assault filed against universities are becoming increasingly prevalent, Haggard said. “It’s not just little colleges,” she said. “The big schools are struggling with this issue as well.” Sean Long, a representative for the district attorney’s office, was one of the speakers at the event. Long has been with the office for six years and deals with cases of this type every day. PHOTO BY DUNCAN STANLEY/The Daily Toreador

Professor named SGA opens 50th legislative session to TIME 100 most influential people New senators, returning senators take oath Katharine Hayhoe, an associate professor at Texas Tech and the director of the Climate Science Center, was named to the 2014 TIME 100. The TIME 100 is a list of the most influential people in the world, according to a Tech news release. “I am honored to be included in the TIME 100 list,” Hayhoe said. “Even more so, I am encouraged to see climate change emerge as an urgent concern.” Hayhoe is an atmospheric scientist who researches the impacts of climate change at a regional-to-local scale, according to the news release, and the ways her finding can be translated into public policy. She records the benefits reducing carbon emissions will have, according to the news release, and the effect climate change has on the economically disadvantaged, who, she said, are most affected by climate change. President M. Duane Nellis said in the release being named to the TIME 100 reflects well on Hayhoe’s research. “This is a tremendous honor and recognition for Dr. Hayhoe and her diligence in researching this important issue,” he said. “Her passion and caliber of work provides a snapshot of the high quality of faculty we have at Texas Tech University.” ➤➤email@example.com

New SGA senators and returning senators took an oath into office as well during the meeting. New SGA External Vice President Stetson Whetstone addressed the senate about projects he will undertake during his term in office. “The first thing I’m going to be starting on is revising the bus routes,” he said. “This year, I talked to transportation and we have a new computer system for busing. With that, it should hopefully alleviate issues that we had.” Whetstone said he will lobby for a reduction of taxes on textbooks, con-
tinue efforts of sustainability a t Te c h a n d continue the SGA relationship with the Lubbock City Council as well. New SGA President WALDROP Hayden Hatch shared the projects he will work on during his term with the senate. “A couple of my goals, things I want to accomplish are getting Raider bucks off campus,” he said. “We already got a name for it, it’s going to be called ‘Matador Money,’ so that’s a great start.” Hatch said he will work on expanding dead day as well. Hatch spoke on behalf of the n e w G r a d u a t e Vi c e P r e s i d e n t Pradeep Attaluri. Hatch said Attaluri hopes to create new positions for the SGA cabinet to facilitate different functions of the organization. The new SGA executive candi-
dates will begin their term May 1. The senate passed resolution 50.01. The resolution set the future meeting dates for the 50th legislative session. SGA will meet Sept. 4 and 18, Oct. 2, 16 and 23, and Nov. 6 and 20 for the 2014 fall semester. SGA will meet Jan. 22, Feb. 5 and 19, March 5 and 26 and April 9 for the 2015 spring semester, according to the senate agenda. The senate passed congratulatory pieces at the meeting. The senate congratulated Tech’s School of Accounting for being ranked as one of the top ten masters of accounting programs in the United States, former Masked Rider, Corey Waggoner, and the current SGA executive officers, Luke Cotton, Peyton Craig, Jill Berger and Daniel Yates, according to the senate agenda.

Thursday’s Puzzle Solved
By AMY CUNNINGHAM Staff Writer
Texas Tech political science students conducted a statewide, 15-question survey from March 6 to April 3, which addressed topics such as gay marriage, gubernatorial candidates and the conduct of the National Security Agency. The results, which were initially released last week, were reassessed by Tech professors and released again Thursday with accurate data, Mark McKenzie, a political science associate professor whose class operated the survey, said. “We feel really bad about releasing our poll with some errors in it,” he said, “because it doesn’t reflect how well the students did. We think the sample that they collected is a credible sample.” The results released last week, he said, used inaccurate weights and needed to be readjusted because the data needed to better represent the state population.

“Even the most rational approach to ethics is defenseless if there isn’t the will to do what is right.”
For the first time in 20 years, the Association of American Medical Colleges will change its Medical College Admission Test, beginning March 2015. The changes reflect the growing need for physicians to be able to interact with patients at a greater interpersonal level and be well-rounded individuals overall. Kim Peck, associate dean of admissions and diversity of the Texas Tech Health Sciences Center School of Medicine, said the adjustments to the test will benefit patients in the long run, despite its current inconvenience to students. “The MCAT exam obviously needs to be updated as medicine grows daily — literally,” she said. “The emphasis for change comes from a national recognition

For example, the previously released survey results showed attorney general and Republican gubernatorial candidate Greg Abbott with a 54 percent lead over Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, who had 25 percent support. According to the adjusted survey results, Abbott has a 51 percent lead over Davis’ 41 percent. Despite the weighing error, McKenzie said the results are similar. “If you compare these results to the previous results, the results don’t change substantially,” he said. “There’s not a lot of difference. The main problem with the previous results is that we underestimated Wendy Davis’ support. Most of the other metrics don’t change a whole lot.” That particular question was most affected by the faulty weights, McKenzie said. Over the weekend, researchers realized the mistake while analyzing the data further. With a margin of error of 4.6 percent, many of the results looked plau-
sible at first, he said. Most of the questions concerned topics discussed in Seth McKee, a political science associate professor, and McKenzie’s courses, McKenzie said. Other questions were relevant to the community, such as President Barack Obama’s approval rating in Texas, the gubernatorial race and illegal immigration. “The majority of Texans said illegal immigrants should be able to apply for citizenship and stay here,” Cole McNiel, a sophomore political science from Mansfield, said, “instead of just being deported.” The results show political leaders do not always agree on issues with the average voter, McKenzie said. By conducting the survey, he said the community and students alike learn more about the stance of Texans on specific topics. Surveys are conducted each semester if possible, he said. Faculty members at the Early Survey Research Lab purchase phone numbers to call. The students in classes
taught by McKenzie and McKee conducted the phone surveys. McNiel said each student had to write two questions for a graded assignment in McKenzie’s course. The students then selected the best ones, including his question on gay marriage. “I did find it interesting that the results on gay marriage show it isn’t completely opposed in Texas,” he said. “I think it’s gaining momentum for becoming the majority opinion here.” Texans are still divided on the issue of gay marriage, McKenzie said. In the survey, 53 percent of respondents said the law should recognize gay marriage as valid and have the same rights a traditional marriage does. Additionally, the poll shows 75 percent of Texans believe the recent photo ID laws are mainly used to prevent fraud, with 96 percent of respondents stating they had no issue providing a photo ID while voting. ➤➤email@example.com

that a physician’s ability to be culturally competent and to meet their patients’ needs from an emotional standpoint is all a part of being a good physician.” Major changes to the exam include the addition of a social and behavioral sciences section, according to the AAMC website. A critical analysis and reasoning section will also be added, along with updated natural sciences section because of recent medical findings. HSC will not change its requirements to get into its medical program, Peck said. The test’s update will largely impact those who intend to begin medical school in the fall of 2016 or later. “We do recognize students will need to have some exposure to these areas to be able to do well,” she said. “We have historically considered exams from the past five years as valid, so we will accept
MCAT scores from both tests.” The current exam is 4.5 hours long, according to the AAMC website. The new test will be 6.5 hours long to accommodate for the changes. Aaron Lemon-Strauss, executive director of pre-health programs for Kaplan Test Prep, said Kaplan advises students to take the current exam if prepared because of the study resources available. “While we are very supportive of the changes, it does mean that the exam is getting much longer and covering much more content,” he said. “It’s covering new areas that aren’t being covered today. It’s going to meet the goal of increasing student knowledge overall, but it requires students to understand more topic areas.” According to a Kaplan survey of premed students, 66 percent think the 2015 MCAT exam will be more difficult.
Because the new test will require students to study psychology, sociology, biochemistry and other subjects, 56 percent of students said they would not be prepared for the exam if required to take it today, according to the survey. “For that percentage of students,” Lemon-Strauss said, “they would likely need to take additional course work. Many students are looking to take the current exam if they’ve done the prerequisites, but we’re also seeing a lot of students take the current exam to avoid a test twice as long.” In response to the growing amount of students aiming to take the current exam, the AAMC has added October 2014, November 2014 and January 2015 test dates, according to the association’s website. The exam is generally not offered any later than September.
“This issue is much bigger than Gary or myself, it is about the future of our great city’s electrical generation and distribution,” Robertson said. “It has nothing to do with anybody’s ethnic background.” His first reaction, he said, was shock in receiving a letter such as this. He said he felt everything had calmed down in the past 30 to 45 days, so the timing of the letter confused him.
“I’m very troubled,” he said. “What troubles me most is that Chancellor Hance and I have worked hard for the last couple years to mend bridges that have been burnt and have the opportunity to grow Lubbock and Texas Tech together. We don’t need organizations like this making these kinds of wild accusations and basically blaming the mayor for every atrocity that has been done to
Chinese Americans since the 1800s.” Zheng said his focus as CEO is working with the EUB, the staff at Lubbock Power and Light, the Mayor and Lubbock City Council, and stakeholders in the community. He said he appreciates the support that he has been shown from individuals associated with Tech. “It is important for everyone to know that I did not have any part in organizing or encouraging the letter distributed by the TTU Chinese Faculty and Chinese American community of Lubbock,” he said.

Gang activity is growing in Texas By KAITLIN BAIN Staff Writer
As gang violence in Texas and the United States grows, Lubbock police take measures to ensure this does not affect Lubbock. According to the Texas Gang Assessment, the current number of gang members in Texas exceeds 100,000 individuals belonging to 2,500 different gangs. Jason Lewis, spokesperson for the Lubbock Police Department, said the gang violence which happens in Lubbock is not manifested in the sense that is often people’s first thought. “We don’t have a lot of the problems you see in larger cities like people claiming a block or hanging out in large groups because they are a gang or those kinds of things,” he said. “We do see gang members and gang-related crime, though.” The gang crime is shown through the movement of drugs through Lubbock and those who have been incarcerated and are carrying out
tasks for those still in prison, he said. This crime does not happen in places where citizens frequently gather, he said, but if citizens do find themselves in a situation where they feel uncomfortable, it is important for them to trust their instincts. “Take a second to look around. If you see someone about to put a mask on and rob the place, get out,” he said. “I wouldn’t expect you to be somewhere were you were going to encounter that. However, you could be grocery shopping and suddenly you’re in a robbery that’s being conducted by a gang member.” While he said citizens should trust their instincts, there is not a rule for the type, age or sex of a person involved in a gang. Anyone can get involved with gangs in prison, he said, because there is a wide range of ages of both men and women who can be sent to prison. “There is a wide range, but when you think of troublemakers or crimes being committed, most of them are going to be by younger males,” Lewis
said. “You know, late teens, early twenties, those kinds of things.” He said LPD does have special duty officers that gather intelligence both from regional and national sources and from arrests they have made of current gang members. It is important to LPD, he said, to make sure that they’re gathering and spreading information that has the potential to save someone’s life. “Situations are always arising and changing,” he said. “The drug cartel is the perfect example. I know we’ve seen DPS on the news recently talking about drug trafficking and the cartel and problems that have been arising from them moving more into the U.S., and that is a perfect example. That’s the kind of information we share with our officers so they know it’s a red flag and something to take note of and document.” Not only is LPD taking measures to decrease gang violence, but the officers with the Texas Tech Police Department are also keeping their eyes open to possible gang members
Tango Blast, Texas Syndicate and the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas are the three most significant gangs in Lubbock, according to the Texas Gang Assessment. Each of the gangs has their own trademarks and operates for different purposes, according to the assessment. “Tango Blast has been prevalent in Lubbock for a while now,” Sgt. Bryan Witt with the Texas Department of Public Safety, said. “We believe throughout the state that Tango Blast and their cliques exceed 8,200 members. They’re our most significant gang in Texas.” Their significance and ranking as a Tier One gang, the most dan-
gerous rating they can obtain, he said, spawns from the relationship Tango Blast has with Mexican drug cartels, he said. The name Tango Blast comes from tango, representing the members’ hometown, family and brotherhood, and blasting, the term used when members commit a crime for their gang, according to the assessment. “There’s no limit on what they would do for their gang members,” Witt said. It is a loose association gang without a set hierarchy, according to the assessment, and the members brand themselves with tattoos which look similar to the Dallas Cowboys’ star. Texas Syndicate is a gang with a regional cell model, which means there are several cells
within the same organization that act independently of one another, according to the assessment. The members wear tattoos of many different kinds, but they are required to have a T and an S evident in the design, according to the assessment. Joey Contreras, a San Antonio attorney who deals with these kinds of cases, said the Texas Syndicate first started in San Antonio after moving from California. “Our goal is to take them off the streets,” he said. “These are people who just commit felonies every day.” The Aryan Brotherhood is the final significant gang in Lubbock, according to the assessment. This gang is predominantly white and is a product of prison,
committing crimes, Stephen Hinkle, spokesperson for the Texas Tech Police Department, said. The gang violence TTPD does experience, he said, deals mostly with gang members who may be committing crimes on their own, not so much organized gang violence. “If we do come in contact with a gang member, it is normally during a traffic stop or an event being held on campus that’s not always gang related,” he said. According to the assessment, Lubbock is in Region 5, the region which contains the panhandle and several adjoining counties. The most significant gangs in this region, according to the assessment, are Tango Blast, Texas Syndicate and the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas. Other gangs that have been reported in the region, according to the assessment, are Barrio Azteca, Texas Mexican Mafia, Partido Revolucionario Mexicano, Crips, Bloods, Bandidos, Surenos and Aryan Circle. ➤➤firstname.lastname@example.org

according to the assessment, and its members profess racial superiority over others. Members of the Aryan Brotherhood vary in their branding tattoos, but they usually use a mix of shamrocks, the symbol of the beast, the letters AB and the numbers 12 and 666, representing Satan. “The most effective tool in fighting any threat is understanding the enemy,” Joe Pickett, chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security and Public Safety, said in an Associated Press article. “This intelligence report amasses information about gang trends and their relationships that is critical to effectively targeting and disrupting these criminal organizations.” ➤➤email@example.com

Not all coffee types have same caffeine content Alexis Nelson ternational Coffee Organization’s website, there are two basic types of coffee beans used in production: Robusta and Arabica. Robusta beans have twice as much caffeine as Arabica beans in a typical five-ounce serving. The taste of Robusta beans also differs from Arabica beans in that the taste is bolder and has a more bitter and earthy flavor. According to an article on Bloomberg. com, Robusta beans are used in espressos and instant coffee. The bean is considered to be lower quality, but is cheaper to obtain
than its counterpart. While Robusta tends to be cheaper in price and quality, Arabica beans still account for 60 percent of the world’s coffee production, according to the ICO’s website. The flavor of the bean is much more acidic than its counterpart, but the plant itself takes two fewer months to mature than Robusta bean plants. Arabica beans, according to the previously mentioned Bloomberg article, are commonly used in popular coffee shops such as Starbucks for specialty blends.
The type of coffee chosen and how it is brewed will affect the amount of caffeine in a cup of coffee.
Pros of bilingualism outweigh drawbacks By TAYLOR FINN
iowa STaTe Daily (iowa STaTe U.)
Children that learn a second language at an early age have many benefits over children who are monolingual. Countries all around the world such as China, Germany and many others begin to teach children a second language as soon as elementary school. Here in America, however, policy makers don’t realize the benefits of learning a second language. They seem to have the mindset that if the rest of the world is speaking English than what need is there for Americans to learn anything else? Unfortunately, this mindset holds us back from becoming better citizens and gaining skills along the way. When an individual goes through the process of learning a second language they not only learn about grammar and vocabulary, but they also gain a better understanding of a culture unlike their own. This exposure to a new lifestyle and belief system can lead to more tolerance and acceptance for people from countries that differ from America, and if you ask me, tolerance is something many Americans lack. In addition to becoming
familiar with different cultures, studies have shown that bilingual children are generally better problem solvers, more creative and have better memories. The skill set children gain from learning another language can be applied throughout their lives and can make learning in general a much easier process. Much like when children learn a new instrument, studying a second language exercises a part of the brain that is often unused. Stimulating another part of the brain opens up many opportunities in terms of learning capability and overall intelligence. We often hear the distressed politicians talking about how American students stack up to foreign students in terms of math scores and literacy. There is a bit of panic that the American education system is lacking in terms of preparing today’s youth. In response to that panic our government, in conjunction with a team of educators have designed a few different curricula over the years. We all know about former President Bush’s “No Child Left Behind” policy, which had good intentions but failed miserably. The latest development in academia is a program called “Common Core.” This pro-

gram raises the standards, and is heavily focused on math and reading, it depends on standardized testing, and ambitious goals. So far the reviews on this program have been quite mixed, some critics claim that it is taking the joy out of learning and deterring many high-achieving students from working to their full potential because getting an A on any given test is extremely difficult. When looking at both No Child Left Behind and Common Core, I see a major component that both of them are lacking. The vital aspect in which I believe to be extremely important is incorporating a foreign language. The hypotheses have been tested, and time and time again the results of these experiments tell us that learning a second language, especially at an early age has tremendous benefits. The cognitive benefits alone should convince todays policy makers and educators to consider incorporating a language component in their future plans. Not to mention the fact that we live in a very interconnected culture. Many employees are looking to hire individuals with versatility, and the ability to communicate with a foreign clientele base. The advantages bilingual individuals have are numerous, yet there has been very little push for mandating the teaching of a second language in elementary or middle schools. When students are young, they have the ability to catch on to a second language much quicker than if those same students were in high school or in college. We are doing today’s youth a great disservice by not giving them any exposure to a second language. If what we want is to produce scholars and employees that are marketable and able to compete in the international market, it is imperative that we begin to teach today’s youth a second language early, and that we continue teaching them that language as they get older.

While the type of bean can alter what the caffeine content is in one’s cup of coffee, so can the way the bean is roasted. According to cafebellacoffee.com, it is a common misconception in the U.S. that darker coffee roasts have higher caffeine content than lighter roasts. The opposite, according t o t h e I C O ’s website, is true. The less you roast coffee beans, the more caffeine content will be saved by volume and the natural flavors of the type of bean itself will be preserved.
hether you like your coffee black, loaded with cream and sugar or even fancied up from Starbucks, one thing is for certain: Coffee is a popular drink. According to an article on huffingtonpost.com, more than 400 million cups of coffee are consumed daily in the United States, which equates to 146 billion cups per year. Needless to say, the U.S. is the leading consumer of coffee in the world. The main reason why people drink coffee is for the taste and the energy boost obtained from the drink. However, dependent on what type of coffee is being ingested, the caffeine content varies. What’s the difference, one might ask? The answer lies within the type of coffee bean and how it is roasted. According to the In-
Coffee beans, prior to being roasted, are green. According to wisegeek.com, the level of roasting is based on the color of the bean as it goes through the roasting process. Lighter brown beans signify the lighter roasts while the darker brown beans signify the dark roast. Less chemical qualities of the coffee bean are lost in light roasts, therefore giving the coffee more concentrated amounts of caffeine while also maintaining the bean’s natural flavor. Darker roasts burn away the natural taste and chemical aspects that make the coffee more caffeinated, therefore making the taste bitter and devoid of that energy boost consumers want. French roast, while popular, is also a dark roast that is lacking in quality and caffeine content. According to cafebellacoffee. com, the process of French roast
is actually used by coffee producers to mask impurities in the coffee beans being used. The same website also states this particular type of roast takes beans of all qualities and roasts them at a high temperature, thus making the taste and caffeine content varied based on the production company and their supply. For coffee drinkers alike, remember this: The type of coffee chosen and how it is brewed will affect the amount of caffeine in a cup of coffee. Whether it be fancy coffee or a simple cup out of a coffee pot, the darker roast is not going to get a coffee drinker the most amount of caffeine; the lighter roast will.

Schools should not threaten suspension carelessly By JORDYN HOLMAN
The Daily Trojan (U. SoUThern Cal)
Suspension. It has to be one of the scariest words a student can hear, right next to expulsion, that is. A suspension is usually handed down after a student has violated school code and possibly put his or her peers in danger, therefore leading to that student being temporarily prohibited from school grounds and classes. In the past week, however, some school administrators have threatened suspension not for the best interest of the student body, but to seemingly silence students from exposing a point of view they disagree with. In an age when one’s school record is vital to success and his or her opinions are protected by law, school administrators should not misuse the act of suspension by using it as a threat to make students fall back in line. When a group of 18 students from the Student Coalition Against Labor Exploitation occupied USC’s Bovard Auditorium on April 15 to shed light on workers’ rights and the university’s relationship with a vendor — the parent company of which has ties to factories in Bangladesh and who SCALE claims has contributed to the death of numerous workers — the administration’s response was to claim that students would be given a letter of “interim suspension.” In an email to the Daily Trojan, Vice Provost of Student Affairs Ainsley Carry said that no letters of interim suspension were handed out and the students were informed of the possibility of suspension prior to the beginning of their sit-in. Furthermore, he added that if students were suspended they “would likely face the loss of any university scholarships.” For a university where tuition costs $42,602 a year, according to the USC Financial Aid website, the possibility of receiving a suspension and losing one’s scholarship is a steep punishment. Yes, schools have to maintain a sense
of decorum and standards for student conduct, but suspension should not be used as a way to stifle the student voice. Students have rights, as was seen in the case of Tinker v. Des Moines, in which the Supreme Court ruled that students have certain constitutional rights and that disciplinary actions by the school should not violate these rights. Though the ruling applied to public schools, private schools should have the same regard for students’ rights. A few days after students were threatened with suspension and loss of scholarship because of their sit-in here in Los Angeles, a high school senior in Pennsylvania was suspended for asking Miss America Nina Davuluri to his prom, according to New York Magazine. Central York High School administrators, according to the Associated Press, said they were tasked with keeping the rest of the school’s teenage students in order and had warned the now-suspended Patrick Farves of the possible consequences before he conducted his “promposal.” Despite pleas from Miss America to the administration to reconsider their punishment of Farves, the school stood by its decision to give Farves a three-day in-school suspension for asking Miss America to prom against the administration’s wishes. Over the years, the number of students who have been suspended in the United States has risen. According to the U.S. Department of Education, more than 3.7 million students received out-of-school suspensions in the 20092010 school year. Therefore, one out of every nine secondary school students was suspended at least once during that year. Once a suspension is on a student’s record, it stays there. Though the record can become private, the stigma surrounding suspension remains. During the formative years of high school and college, a student should not be penalized for forming beliefs, standing by them and letting other people know
how he or she feels. Students in high school and college should be able to use this time in their lives to explore their ideas and find unique ways to express them. When the administration uses suspension as a way to seemingly stifle the dissenting focus on an issue that has larger social implications rather than using it to remove a bad apple from the crowd, then suspension is not being used correctly. Instead, it is being used as a political tool — and students don’t have an equal one to pry back with. When students come to the administration with their concerns, they should not be met with stringent punishments, but instead with an open dialogue to discuss why these grievances have been made, and possibly clarify any misunderstandings surrounding concerns of workers’ rights over in Bangladesh. Furthermore, if students are consistently threatened with suspension over seemingly non-harmful crimes, such as sitting in the hallways of the administrative building and asking one of the nation’s prettiest women to prom, then when suspension is actually needed to curb a student’s actions it will not have the same effect. It will not be taken as seriously and threats of suspension will fall on deaf ears. We should reserve suspension for the real crimes and wrongdoings that students could possibly do. Suspension is a scary action. Yet high school and college students, particularly here at USC, should not feel like inaction on the issues that matter should be the way to prevent suspension. Therefore, high school and colleges administrators across the nation should be wary of threatening to suspend their students. Rather, they should sit and listen to what the students have to say before we decide to kick them out of school for three days. Suspension is meant to discipline, and we should be cautious of enforcing such discipline on students for simply holding opinions on social justice.

TAB hosts annual Red Raider Showcase By TAYLOR PEACE Staff Writer
Students brought the audience to their feet as they fearlessly took on the stage at the second annual Red Raider Showcase last night in the Allen Theater. With acts ranging from singing, dancing, beat boxing and voice impressions, each individual made jaws drop as they boldly showed off their skills. Regine Cliatt, nightlife coordinator for Tech Activities Board, said the talent show is a perfect event to bring fellow students together, and most of the performers have never performed in front of a large audience before. “We love seeing everyone come together to watch these amazing acts,” he said. “It gives everyone a chance to see how much creativity and talent Tech students have and are capable of.” Cliatt said the first place winner received a check to pay for all of their textbooks while being an undergraduate, and the second place winner received $500. In order to make this possible, TAB partnered with Barnes and Nobles bookstore, Cliatt said, and Barnes and Noble handed the check to the winner at the end of the night. “We are so grateful to partner with Barnes and Noble,”he said. “Without them, the talent show wouldn’t have
been possible.” Tre Prueitt, a junior history major from Killeen, was the first place winner for the show. He got the whole crowd involved while he beat boxed a mash up of many different rap songs. “I’ve been doing this since middle school,” Prueitt said. “Beat boxing is something that I enjoy, and I don’t plan on stopping anytime soon.” He is also a member of the student organization Dancer’s With Soul. Prueitt said he loves being around any kind of talent, especially singers and dancers. “Everyone in the talent show were amazingly gifted in their own ways,” he said. “I’m glad I have been given the opportunity to be around such a gifted group of people.” Prueitt said he was introduced to beat boxing in middle school. He and his friends would always mess around and rap in school, he said, until one day he tried to do beat boxing instead. “We could never bang on the tables or anything, so one day my friends relied on me to make the sounds,” he said. “After that, I just never stopped — I fell in love with it.” Prueitt entered the talent show because he wanted to entertain people and for the experience, he said.
Prueitt said he did not know about the free books award until after he auditioned. “I always enjoy entertaining people and have fun while I’m up on stage,” Prueitt said. “I mean the books are a definite plus but the overall experience is what mattered most.” Abi Ramos, a freshman clinical laboratory science major from Lubbock, won second place. With a smile from ear to ear, she said she was so nervous before going on and had no idea she would make it this far in the competition. “I am so happy that I received second place,” Ramos said. “I couldn’t believe it when they called my name. I don’t even know what to do with myself.” She said she has been singing since she was four and tries to sing to a crowd every chance she can get. When Ramos found out about the talent show, she immediately signed up but did not think she would have the chance of winning second due to all of the other talented students. “Everyone was so incredibly talented,” she said. “It was amazing being part of this type of experience.” Ramos said this was her first time performing in any type of talent show or competition. She said it was very nerve-racking, but once the crowd became excited and in-

Students promote agricultural industry By JENNIFER ROMERO Staff Writer
This week was Agriculture Awareness Week, and the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources hosted various events throughout the week to celebrate. Krysti Kelley, a junior interdisciplinary agriculture major from Mission, is the president of the Texas Tech Ag Council, which
organized the events for the week. “Ag Awareness is kind of a reoccurring theme, but we added some new events that took a little bit of extra planning,” she said. “We had a community service for the first time this year. We start planning each component of the week at different times.” Ag Awareness Week typically starts on a Sunday with Ag Olympics, Kelley said, but this year it was
hosted April 13 because Easter was last weekend. At Ag Olympics, organizations within CASNR compete in various events, Kelley said, and the winning clubs earn points. “The teams compete in events like tug-of-war with a mud pit, crazy obstacle courses and dodge ball,” she said. “The points the winning teams earn go towards winning the Club of the Semester award.” Ag Council will announce student and organization awards at the Ag Honors Banquet on Friday, Kelley said, which is the end of Ag Awareness Week. The HungerU Tour chose Tech as one of its college campus stops to help celebrate the week, Kelley said, and it educates students across the country about how agriculture helps feed a growing population. “The HungerU Tour was on campus on Tuesday and Wednesday,” she said. “On Wednesday evening, some students volunteered at the Boys and Girls Club on Indiana. We had about 12 to 15 people there, and we were just playing volleyball and basketball with the kids.” On Thursday, CASNR students participated in “Where’s the Food Without the Farmer?” Kelley said. This is the third year Tech has been a part of the national campaign. Lauren Baglietto, a senior animal science production major from Galt, Calif., set up a table representing Sigma Alpha outside the Student Union building for the event. “We emailed different agricultural organizations and asked them
to donate supplies,” she said. “We made a poster board and researched facts about women in agriculture. We chose our topic because our sorority is all about promoting women in agriculture.” All the participating student organizations chose a specific topic to talk about, Kelley said, and club members were handing out free items such as pens, fliers, stickers and candy to students walking through the Free Speech Area. Heather Williams, a senior conservation science major from New Braunfels, represented the Student Association for Fire Ecology at the event. “The club feels that burning has a bad image in the media,” she said. “We think it’s important to be good public relations for fire and the benefits it can have on ecosystems such as rangeland, prairies and cropland.” Ag Awareness Week helps unite students in CASNR, Williams said, and it allows them to reach out to students outside the college. The events help promote the agricultural organizations on campus, Baglietto said, and the general public is also reminded that farmers and ranchers feed the nation. “I feel like agriculture is a very misunderstood industry,” Kelley said. “A lot of people don’t think about where the food they eat comes from. This week is a good way to tell people that agriculture is something they should be aware of. We’re trying to educate people that agriculture is a viable industry. We need to get our name out there.” ➤➤firstname.lastname@example.org

Growing up in Boys Ranch life-changing B
oys Ranch, Texas — yes, it is a real place. The nearest Wal-Mart, gas station or restaurant is 45 miles away. That was my childhood. I graduated from Boys Ranch High School, in a class of 54 people, with only about 250 students in the whole school. Boys Ranch, however, is not your typical small town. Cal Farley’s Boys Ranch is about 45 miles north of Amarillo. It is a structured community for parents to send their boys and girls with rough family situations or discipline problems. The kids live in group homes with about 12 kids living in each home, and each home with a set of house parents. The campus is Christ-centered, and it is run completely off donations.
Hannah Hipp My parents have worked at the ranch since I was born, so I was raised in this community. Going to school and living near those kids has given me a different perspective than most people. Some of the stories they would tell were absolutely heartbreaking. They had all been through things that could break any person, but they were only kids.
They wanted someone to listen to them and support them, but most of all they were yearning for love — love they didn’t get from their alcoholic fathers or angry stepmothers. It was my duty, as a child with a loving family, to love those kids regardless of how they acted toward me. Most of the kids were sneaky and always looking for a way to take advantage of me. They didn’t care how their actions affected other people, because they had never experienced selflessness. Other kids were angry and would get upset for the slightest of reasons. Others were just plain mean. Some say hurt kids hurt other kids. Rather than facing their problems, many kids projected their insecurities onto others. However, I learned most of these ac-
tions were simply reactions to the things they had been through and the examples they had been shown growing up. One thing I got used to while at the ranch was people leaving. The average stay for a child is two years. I was there for 18 years and saw countless friends come and go. One of the most difficult things was graduation, because after the kids graduate, they go to their real homes, and most will never return to Boys Ranch in their lifetime. When I said goodbye to many of them, it was with the knowledge that I might never see them again. It was tough to say the least, but I was also able to meet some of the most amazing and diverse people. I had friends who had been in gangs
in New York and friends who had grown up homeless in California. One of the best friends I made moved to Boys Ranch from New York, where he had been struggling in school and was living alone with an absent, alcoholic mother after his father had run away. He was at Boys Ranch for almost four years, and in that time, was able to graduate high school and is now working toward a degree at a New York College, something he never thought would have been possible. Many of the kids are bitter upon their arrival. They do not want help, and they think they are fine on their own. However, once they leave, they realize just how good they had it and how much of a difference it made in
their lives. For me, I now have a greater understanding and empathy for all people. It is easy to judge someone without knowing their story. Who knows what they might have been through in their lives or what caused them to act the way they do. If the kids at the ranch are any example, I’m sure their story might be surprising. I like to think I was a good influence and helped the kids as much as I could. At the same time, I learned so much from them, and if I could thank them all I would. Without them, I wouldn’t be the person I am today. Hipp is a junior journalism major from Boys Ranch. ➤➤email@example.com
Concert to raise money for music scholarships T-shirt design contest deadline coming up
The Texas Tech School of Music is hosting its 38th Annual Scholarship Concert from 8-10 p.m. Saturday in the Broadway Church of Christ. James Hodgins, the publicity and communications coordinator for the School of Music, said the concert will feature faculty, student and community musicians. “The Scholarship Concert is the big event for the end of the year,” he said. “We recognize all of our scholarship donors and musicians.” The concert will include Johannes Brahms’ “Double Concerto for Violin, Violoncello and Orchestra,” according to TechAnnounce, and Tech faculty Annie Boyle and Jeffrey Lastrapes will perform solos.
The Texas Tech University Choirs, Symphony Orchestra and the Lubbock Chorale will also perform in a combined performance of Ralph Vaughan Williams’ “Dona Nobis Pacem.” “This is one of the big events that we host that everyone looks forward to,” Hodgins said. “We have a big reception where people can gather and meet the students and the donors.” For the past few years, the concert has been free to the public, Hodgins said, and more people have attended the event as a result. Donations are accepted at the concert, he said, and the money goes directly to scholarships for students in the School of Music. “Being the School of Music, we always want to highlight what we
do,” Hodgins said. “Being able to showcase the talent we have on our faculty with them performing solos makes the fundraiser something to look forward to.” The Scholarship Concert is the only fundraising event the School of Music hosts throughout the year, Hodgins said, and it is usually a successful event. By performing with the Lubbock Chorale, Hodgins said, the Tech musicians are able to show their involvement in the community. “It benefits the students by showcasing their talent,” he said. “We can recognize those students who won scholarships and raise money for more scholarships in the future.”

She said the winner of the contest will be rewarded with four of the shirts along with having their name on the T-shirt for others to see who designed it. “The judges will be looking for originality and for something that stands out among a crowd,” Carpeople he has been in relationships with have had issues with sexual assault and domestic abuse, Herrero said. “I’ve seen firsthand what it can do to people,” he said. “It’s not good.” Herrero wanted to stand up for those he knew who had been

Tech coach Tadlock takes on former team SportS Editor
Texas Tech coach Tim Tadlock will take one of his former teams this weekend when the Red Raider baseball team takes on Oklahoma in a Big 12 Conference series. Tadlock, who is the ninth baseball coach in school history, was an assistant coach for the Sooners from 2006-2011, according to the Tech Athletics website, leading up to his coming to Tech as an associate head coach in 2012. Be c au s e t h e s e c o n d - y e a r head coach is only three years
removed from his tenure at Oklahoma, Tadlock still knows players on this weekend’s opposing team. “ To o m a n y ( p l a y e r s ) t o count,” he said. “Way too many.” The Sooners are coming into Lubbock with a 5-7 record in conference play and in the middle of a nine-game stretch in which they have only won two. Tech sophomore first baseman Eric Gutierrez said Oklahoma is going to come in desperate for a win, and the series is going to be difficult for both teams. “I mean, they’re hungry and they want to win too,” Gutierrez said. “I think they’re going to get
their best shots, and it’s not going to be easy for us or for them.” Tech is also on a bit of a skid after losing both of its midweek games against New Mexico and Texas Christian. The Red Raiders, however, have not had a losing streak longer than two games throughout this season. Tech sophomore outfielder Zach Davis said all of the Tech players have a good relationship with each other off the field, and it translates to in-game situations, so the Red Raiders don’t have a lot of ups and downs. “We play very well with each other,” Davis said. “We’re super comfortable with each other
inside the locker room, and I think that carries onto the field. We know what each other can do, and we don’t try and press or do anything that we can’t do.” Tech freshman pitcher Ryan Moseley will be making only his second career start in the first game of the series, which begins at 6:37 p.m. Friday at Dan Law Field. Tadlock said Moseley had great confidence and composure in his first start last week, and he’s done a good job of mixing his pitches. “More than anything, it’s his competitiveness,” Tadlock said. “The main thing you
worry about with Ryan is just calming him down. Just saying ‘this is a baseball game, let’s go play baseball.’” The former Friday night starter, junior pitcher Dominic Moreno, has been moved into a bullpen role, and he is embracing it, he said. Moreno got experience coming out of the bullpen in the summer, he said, so the experience is nothing new to him. “I told coach since the beginning of the season ‘anything I can do for the team to help the team win, whether I’m starting or out of the bullpen it really, really doesn’t matter,” Moreno
said. “I’m not a ‘my guy’ at all. If this is helping the team win, I’m all for it.” Including the three-game series against Oklahoma, the Red Raiders only have 11 games left on their schedule with six of the games remaining at home. The team has done really well to this point in the season, Moreno said, but all of the players want to finish what they have started. “There’s no reason for us to look ahead or look back,” Moreno said, “and we’re just kind of in the moment right now, ready to go.” ➤➤email@example.com
Softball tries to win third-straight series By JEREMY KRAKOSKY Staff WritEr
The Texas Tech softball team returns home for a three-game series against Iowa State starting at 7 p.m. Friday at Rocky Johnson Field. It will be Tech’s final home series of the season. The Red Raiders are coming off a road sweep of Kansas and enter this weekend on a four-game winning streak, the longest in Big 12 Conference play since the 2010 season. Tech coach Shanon Hays said the entire team played well last weekend and they will try to repeat that against Iowa State. “It was fun to see our girls in Kansas because we found ways to win,”
he said. “We played really good defense and had some really stellar plays all the way around the board, along with Gretchen (Aucoin) throwing well. Finding different ways to win was fun to watch.” The series will continue at 4 p.m. Saturday and conclude at noon Sunday. Tech freshman centerfielder Sydni Emanuel said the team was disappointed they had not completed previous sweeps and were motivated to dominate Kansas. “It feels great. It’s about time that we’ve had a sweep,” Emanuel said. “When we played OSU the other weekend, we should have swept them but it’s good to come back with a win and a clean sweep

Thrower makes long journey into record books By DAWIT HAILE Staff Writer
Texas Tech redshirt sophomore thrower Hannah Carson has made her name commonplace in the track and field record books. Carson has displayed command over the women’s shot put and discus, but her virtuosity is showcased to the fullest when she is wielding the javelin in her hand. The first ten names for the women’s javelin throw in the Tech record books all say “Hannah Carson.” No one else’s name comes up. The top-five javelin throws in school history are from her all in this current outdoor season, as well. Stephen Carson, Hannah’s father and throwing coach, said he could only describe her as special when it comes to her athletic prowess. Track and field did not even earn the distinction as her best sport, Stephen Carson said. Soccer was her best and favorite sport growing up. However, this did not prevent Hannah from participating in track and field events as soon as 1997, and afterward it began to become evident to him she had all the makings to be a great thrower. “Well with all the great throwers I’ve seen,” Stephen Carson said, “they were all great sprinters. Hannah is still a great
sprinter today, but has not been able to explore that running ability.” With Hannah’s athletic ability, Stephen Carson adopted the role as coach, he said. This role was to help his daughter improve her technique. But he did not bar others from teaching Hannah Carson too. As her skills continued to develop, he began to allow more coaches to mold Hannah Carson as an athlete. Coach Mike Chapman, a former Arizona State decathlete/javelin thrower, and coach Jeff Lothop were the first. The cumulative teachings from these three men proved fruitful. At Dobson High School in Mesa, Ariz., Hannah Carson earned Gatorade Player of the Year in Arizona for girl’s track and field for her freshman year, according to Gatorade. However, she would go through her high school career without hardships. Sophomore year would not treat Hannah Carson so delightfully. She said while playing her favorite sport, soccer, she tore everything in her knee. “I tore my ACL, MCL, my lateral meniscus, LCL and PCL,” Hannah said. “So I did a great job.” The setback could not keep her down forever. She came back and earned AllState honors along with six state championships and two national championships,
according to Tech Athletics. Not to mention, Hannah received another Gatorade Player of the Year award in Arizona, according to Gatorade. But this time it was at Chandler High under the tutelage of coach Eric Richardson and throwing coach Ted Williams. All the accolades she received were appreciated, Hannah said. Improving herself, though, is where her mind is usually at because there are always details to fix. This need to improve would have to wait, she said. More repairs were required for her body. “My second surgery was the summer before I came to Texas Tech,” she said. “I had to get a repair to my meniscus — the medial meniscus, the other side. So now I have had like five surgeries altogether.” Tech track coach Wes Kittley said the second time under the knife for Hannah gave him some pause about her future, but she was too gifted to give up on. “Hannah was one of the greatest javelin thrower prospects out of high school,” Kittley said, “so she came to Tech and received all that was needed for rehab.” Despite the rehab, Hannah experienced bad luck for a third time in her first collegiate meet, he said. At the Willie Williams Classic, she
threw a school record at the time in the javelin, Hannah Carson said. The throw measured 166 10. Subsequently, she geared up for her second attempt, Hannah said, and after the throw had been completed, she suffered another season-ending injury. “I knew, like, right when it happened,” she said, “because I had torn my ACL before and it was the same feeling.” Hannah still won first place. Once again rehab became a routine in life, she said. There was nothing that could be done. She had to use a medical redshirt, which proved frustrating. However, she pushed through and dedicated herself to the rehab, Hannah Carson said. This meant a heavy dose of strength lifting. When her healthy teammates settled on the weights, she had to remain constant with her lifting to stay on schedule. This trust in the rehab process was the turning point, Kittley said. No longer did Hannah Carson harbor any doubts whether the rehab would allow her body to last. She simply worked. All Kittley can do for Hannah now is cross his fingers because she has done everything asked of her, he said. Whether her hard work or Kittley’s crossed fingers did it, something worked for because in her first meet back at

the UT San Antonio Texas Challenge Invitational, Hannah Carson surpassed her longstanding personal record from her final high school season of 173 7, according to Tech Athletics. The throw of 174 4 not only gave her a new personal record, but also broke the school record. Following the UTSA Invitational, Hannah has had just one throw best the school record from her return. That throw flew 177 3. With Hannah’s business-like approach to throwing, the current school record will not stand for long, Kittley said.
“By the end of spring,” he said, “you’re going to see those (180-foot throws).” What spectators are seeing now from Hannah would have been seen from her in the first two years of her career, Kittley said. Assistant coach Cliff Felkins likes how she is similar to a little pack of dynamite, Kittley said. Hannah is fast and dynamic, and with those attributes combined with the opportunity to have her focus on training instead of rehab, her development can make leaps in her remaining years in Lubbock. ➤➤firstname.lastname@example.org
Texas Tech golf teams try for Big 12 Conference titles By REX ROSE Staff Writer
Both Texas Tech golf teams will enter into Big 12 Conference Championship play this weekend. Men’s golf tees off at 8 a.m. today at the 2014 Big 12 Championships at Whispering Pines Golf Club in Trinity. According to a Tech news release, the Whispering Pines Golf Club is hosting the championship for the fifth time and the Red Raiders finished third overall the last time the championships were held at the course in 2012. Tech coach Greg Sands said his team is getting hot at the right time and his players can benefit from past experience from 2012.
“Our guys have worked hard,” he said. “They know that they need to play good at the end of the year, and I think that feeling of how they’ve done well in the postseason, I think those feelings have come back and they know this is time to go.” The men’s championship follows a 72-hole format, and teams will consist of five golfers with the lowest four scores per round from the designated five-player team being used. Tech junior golfer Esteban Restrepo is averaging a team-low score of 72.9 per round and said he remembers playing well at Trinity two years ago. “It seems like we’re peaking at the right time once again and we’re just heading to Trinity with a lot of
confidence to finish what we couldn’t freshman year,” he said. “We feel like we’re more mature now and if we can take advantage of how we did at the course back then and we can finish this time, I really have a good feeling about this.” The Red Raiders are the No. 5 seed in the tournament and Tech will play alongside No. 4 Baylor and No. 6 Iowa State. Although Sands said the Big 12 is a challenging conference, he said he believes his team will be in the title hunt on Sunday. The Red Raiders are led by a group of four juniors who all average below 74 per round: Estaban, Matias Dominguez, Clement Sordet and Henry Todd.

Ellin Arvidsson lead the team in scoring, both averaging fewer than 75 strokes per round. “They fight it out between the two of them on who’s going to be our best player,” Robertson said. “They lead our team and I think now we realize that our three, four and five players need to step it up a little bit and help them out because it’s hard to carry the load all the time.” Although Tech isn’t viewed as one of the top teams heading into the tournament, Hill said she is confident the team can perform well in Austin. “We’ve had a couple team meetings (since Ohio State) and we talked about what our team goal is, so we know what we need to do in order to do good in
conference,” she said. According to a Tech news release, the Lady Raiders are seeking their fifth consecutive NCAA Regional birth and have finished in the top half of the conference tournament field in three of the last four seasons. Robertson said she likes her team’s chances and hopes the good weather in Austin can boost the team’s performance. “That’s one thing about the Big 12 is you never know what is going to happen,” she said. “The weather can change in an instant, the competition is great and it’s a good golf course. But I think having good weather will hopefully bring out the best in our players.” ➤➤email@example.com
