Former president honored with Kennedy award BOSTON (AP) — Former President George H.W. Bush was honored Sunday with a Kennedy “courage” award for agreeing to raise taxes to confront a spiraling deficit, jeopardizing his presidency that ended after just one term. The John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum in Boston honored Bush with a 2014 John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award. The award crossed generations and political parties. It was given by Jack Schlossberg, son of the late Democratic president’s daughter, Caroline Kennedy, to Lauren Bush, granddaughter of the former Republican president. Conservatives denounced Bush for raising taxes, breaking a key promise in his successful 1988 campaign for the White House. Schlossberg said the award recognizes Bush for taking action, even if it was unpopular. “We celebrate courage today, in a moment of profound change and challenge, in a world gripped by partisan gridlock and inaction,” he said.
Perry: Okla. execution ‘went terribly wrong’ WASHINGTON (AP) — Texas Gov. Rick Perry says “something went terribly wrong” during the botched execution of an Oklahoma inmate, but declined to call it inhumane. Speaking on “Meet the Press” Sunday, Perry said he thought it was appropriate for Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin to delay an upcoming execution as state officials investigate what went wrong in the Tuesday execution of Clayton Lockett, who appeared to writhe in pain until dying of a heart attack. Perry said he’s confident in Texas’ ability to carry out executions properly and still supports the death penalty. He added that each state should decide for itself whether to have executions. The botched execution got worldwide attention and has driven calls for new legal challenges.

In December of 2012, Texas Tech student Meagan Rough was killed when hit by a drunk driver. Months later, family and friends close to Meagan set up the MayDay 5K Glow event in her honor, and now a year later, the event was hosted again. “We named it MayDay because Meagan’s nickname was May, and she loved spring and the warm weather,” Kari Rough, Meagan’s mother, said. “Her best friends wanted to be proactive, and so we put this event together.” The students who knew Meagan were on fire with doing something about what happened, Rough said.

By TYLER DORNER Texas Tech System Chancellor Kent Hance announced at 10:30 a.m. Friday in the City Bank Conference Center that the basketball arena previously known as United Spirit Arena will be renamed United Supermarkets Arena. For $9.45 million, United Supermarkets extended its contract for the naming rights to the arena. Hance said the deal has been in the works for some time. United Supermarkets has been supporting Tech for 20 years and this deal extended that partnership. “They believe in Texas Tech,” Hance said. “They believe in Lubbock, and they put their money where their mouth is.” The deal will not only benefit athletics, but also graduations and concerts with artists like Paul McCartney, Elton John and George Strait, Hance said. The $9.45 million will go toward a number of different improvements to different areas of the arena, including the basketball and volleyball locker rooms, the athletic training areas and several other areas of the venue, Athletic Director Kirby Hocutt said. “This naming rights extension is going to allow us to renovate our team locker room facilities, for both our men’s and women’s basketball programs and our volleyball program,” he said. “This extension is also going to allow us to make modest enhancements to the coaching office space, to our practice gym area, to the arena entry space here at United Supermarkets Arena.” The deal is part of the Fearless Champions campaign, Hocutt said. The Fearless Champions campaign is part of a commitment to a successful future for Tech Athletics. UNITED continued on Page 6 ➤➤ ADVERTISING: 806-742-3384
No one should drink and drive, Rough said, because there are too many other options. “Arrange for a ride, call ahead and always have a backup plan,” she said. “What happened to my daughter is just one of the many reasons to never drink and drive.” The event is meant to be a reminder of Meagan’s death and a reminder to never drive while under the influence, Rough said. Hosting the event right before finals, Rough said, is a good time to put that reminder in people’s minds. “We do it now so that when dead day rolls around, there’s this reminder that everyone has,” she said. Jim Rough, Meagan’s father, said the goal is to raise awareness for drinking and driving so they know they have
other choices. “It’s not the only option,” Jim Rough said. “There are so many other things students can do.” The event featured live music, face painting and a 5K run, which began and ended on Glenna Goodacre. The hope was to have about 200 people show up, Jim Rough said. “This is our second year,” he said, “and we’re hoping to keep it alive and keep it growing.” They were also giving away a scholarship, Jim Rough said, to a student who showed a great desire to prevent drug and alcohol abuse.

Serving the Texas Tech University community since 1925
On a sweltering day, almost nothing is quite as refreshing as a cold glass of lemonade. Lemonade Day was Saturday in Lubbock, and more than 100 stands were set up around town. Joanna Martinez and her daughter, Zayda, were running a stand on Slide Road called The Big Squeeze. “I wanted my daughter to get the experience of being an entrepreneur,” Martinez said, “in case she decided to open her own business or something in the future.” Lemonade Day came to Lubbock in 2012 and was so successful in its first year it is now an annual event, according to the Lubbock Lemonade Day website. Citizens of Lubbock were encouraged to buy three glasses of lemonade from various stands around their neighborhood or anywhere in the city. Each stand can pick a charity to
donate to, and Martinez said they decided to donate to the Lubbock Special Olympics. “I have a stepdaughter who is handicapped,” Martinez said, “so the charity holds a special place in my heart and Zayda’s heart.” The goal of Lemonade Day is to empower today’s youth to become tomorrow’s entrepreneurs, and give them a taste of what running a business is really like, according to the website. Martinez heard about the event on a radio broadcast, she said, and knew it would be a good opportunity for her daughter. “It’s a great event to do to bond with my daughter,” Martinez said, “while also teaching her some valuable things.” They were selling not only lemonade, which Martinez stayed up all night squeezing lemons to make, she said, but also homemade cupcakes, chips and candy.

Students respond to Tech’s summer renovations By KAITLIN BAIN Staff Writer
While some students leave for the summer and others stay on campus to continue working on classes, Texas Tech will continue to grow and change, not only from the students’ presence, but also from the renovations planned. According to the Tech System website, there are several renovations that will take place during the summer months on Lubbock’s campus as well as the other campuses that make up the university system. Eric Fernandes, a senior natural resource management major from Austin, said he
thinks it will be nice to see some of the older buildings get a makeover. “Some of the older buildings have inferior classrooms and facilities compared to the newer buildings,” he said. “I think it’s good that we’re expanding into new buildings, but we should also focus on upgrading existing facilities in addition to expanding into new buildings.” The projects that will be worked on during the summer, according to the website, are the new student housing complex, the track team building renovation, Biological Sciences buildings life safety upgrades, the Larry Combest Community Health and Wellness Center
expansion, El Paso School of Nursing, Tech campus beautification, Bayer CropScience Research Facility and the College of Human Sciences life safety upgrade. The projects have budgets between $1 million and $54.8 million, according to the website, and will be completed during the next few years. Saige Bennett, a sophomore exercise and sport sciences major from Mesquite, said she agrees with some of the renovations but also believes there are places that need renovations more.

Texas Tech Museum hosts annual Dino-Day By DIEGO GAYTAN Staff Writer
The Education Division at the Museum of Texas Tech hosted its annual Dino-Day from 1-4 p.m. Saturday. The three-hour event provided a variety of activities for parents and children to participate in and learn about different kinds of dinosaurs and presented the first 100 children to arrive at the museum with a free backpack. Tiffany Demmon, a Tech Museum education intern, said the event allowed children who attended a special insight into dinosaurs. “Everything is dinosaur themed to promote our dinosaur gallery and our paleethnology division,” she said. “They can see real life fossils and talk to a paleontologist.” Dino-Day is a unique event for the children who attended because of the activities planned, such as being able to touch and see real dinosaur fossils, Dem-
mon said. “We’re making it a special day because we are allowing things we wouldn’t normally allow,” she said. Activities such as dig boxes, puppet shows, raptor birds from the South Plains Wildlife Rehab Center and free showings of Jurassic Park and planetarium shows were part of Dino-Day, according to a Tech release. Jill Hoffman, curator for the education division of the Tech museum, said the raptor birds are part of Dino-Day because of their scientific significance. “The connection to the birds, scientists and paleontologists have made a connection between birds and dinosaurs,” she said. “That is why we invite the South Plains Wildlife Rehab Center to come in.” Dino-Day also promotes the museum’s permanent dinosaur exhibit, Hoffman said. “We have all kinds of activities to promote a fun, free family day to learn about dinosaurs,”
she said. “It’s a major part of our collection here. It’s a permanent exhibit, and it features dinosaurs and information discovered in this area.” Around 900 to 1,200 people attend the event, Hoffman said. Representatives of KTTZ were present at the event to inform the public of the PBS Kids Club. “Kids Club is something PBS has had for a long time and we started it this year,” she said. “We partnered with the museum because the museum has so many events, Dino-Day being one of them, so the museum is sponsor with us.” The KTTZ Kids Club hosts educational events throughout the year for families and children in the Lubbock area, according to the KTTZ website. Although the event is hosted annually, every year is different and special, Demmon said. “We are always trying to oneup ourselves,” she said. ➤➤email@example.com

Social networks, political College names distinguished preferences may be linked engineering student award By AMY CUNNINGHAM Staff Writer
With the number of social media sites and apps growing d a i l y, t h e s o c i a l n e t w o r k s preferred by young Americans may indicate their political preference. According to a Harvard Institute of Politics survey of 18 to 29 year olds, those who identify themselves with the Democratic Party prefer social media outlets like Google Plus, Twitter and Tumblr. “I think part of it might just deal with age demographics,” Stuart Davison, a sophomore political science and philosophy major from Brookshire, said. “Younger people tend to use social media more, and younger people are also more Democrat-leaning.” Overall, young Americans who view themselves as liberal predominantly use the majority of sites and apps listed. Google Plus has the largest difference, according to the survey, with 52 percent of Democrats using
the site in comparison to 36 percent of Republicans. However, one site serves as an exception: Pinterest, a virtual bulletin board site, is most used by Republican-leaning individuals. According to the survey, 40 percent of Republicans use Pinterest as opposed to 37 percent of Democrats. “Pinterest is all about curating materials for that perfect life,” Rebecca Scott, a sophomore biochemistry major from Carthage, New York, said. “Tumblr is more about sharing information outside of you. Facebook is personal. Snapchat is personal. They’re about sharing yourself.” The two most bipartisan social networks, Facebook and Snapchat, may be such because of their ability to send out information and photos quickly, Destin Trochesset, a junior psychology major from Santa Fe, said. Facebook users tie at 87 percent when it comes to aligning with the Republican Party or Democratic Party, according to the survey.

“I’m not surprised that Facebook has an equal amount of users,” he said. “It gets information out to the masses. In future elections, I think social media will be a huge asset because there’s a greater chance both sides will see the information.” For other forms of social media, like Instagram and Foursquare, Democratic-leaning users only utilize the apps slightly more than their GOP counterparts. According to the survey, 41 percent of those who use the photo-based app are Democrats versus 37 percent of Republicans. “I always imagine Tumblr and other social networks to have a more activistlean to them,” Davison said, “whereas Pinterest is sort of more conservative.” Certain sites, like Tumblr, did not surprise Scott as being more liberal, she said. However, she said she was not sure why she associates certain sites with certain kinds of people. ➤➤firstname.lastname@example.org
Amber Helm, a senior chemical engineering major from Weatherford, was named the 2014 winner of the McAuley Distinguished Engineering Student Award. The Texas Tech Edward E. Whitacre College of Engineering selected Helm as the recipient because of her academic achievements, involvement in various organizations and her aspirations, according to a Tech news release. “It’s really exciting,” Helm said. “When they told me I won, I was just stoked. To be the win-
ner is awesome. It’s something I’ve wanted since I found out about it sophomore year.” Since her freshman year, Helm has been involved with various research and engineering-based projects and organizations, according to the release. She has a 3.93 GPA and will graduate Summa Cum Laude with Honors this month. She currently serves as the president of Alpha Omega Epsilon, an engineering sorority, and is an Engineering Ambassador. “This was something I knew I wanted to win,” she said.
“I think I received the award because I have done my best to be academically successful and I’ve wanted to be involved in different organizations. I think having that involvement led to this.” Upon graduation, Helm will work as a production engineer in Kermit with Anadarko, according to the release. She will serve as an alumnae adviser to A.O.E., be a campus recruiter for her company and join Young Guns, the Tech engineering young alumni association.
some reservations about the expansions and where the money is being used. He said the amount enrollment has increased does create a reason for expansion, but he does not know if it is worth the cost. “Tuition has been steadily rising for the past decade, and I hope these projects don’t just increase tuition,” he said. “I hope they truly enhance a student’s experience at TTU.” Fernandes and Bennett both have ideas for other projects they would like to see suggested in the upcoming years. Bennett said she would like to see the Internet connections fixed in some of the older dorms. “I live in Gates and we just

Wi-Fi would help me with my school more than some of the other projects.” On the other hand, Fernandes said he would like to see something done to increase Tech traditions and their prominence on campus. “I’d like to see something done to the old Dairy Barn,” he said. “It’d be nice for it to get some attention and be a more obvious historical marker on campus. All in all, though, I’m excited to see Tech continue to grow and change.”

“I definitely think the wellness center needs to be expanded so they work more efficiently and get patients in and out without waiting days to be seen,” she said. “I think the campus beautification is less important, though.

Lubbock celebrates diversity of cultures By JENNIFER ROMERO Staff Writer
The streets were lined with people watching the parade, and many were families with young children. Latino Lubbock Magazine hosted the second annual Cinco de Mayo parade at 10 a.m. Saturday along Broadway Street. Christy Martinez-Garcia, the publisher for Latino Lubbock Magazine, said 50 groups registered to be part of the parade. “Some groups also had multiple smaller groups,” she said. “For example, Northwest Little League had 17 teams. The Purple Heart Chapter had six Purple Heart recipients. The outpour of support was just overwhelming.” While the parade has been celebrated in the past, according to a news release, it was not hosted for 30 years until it was started again last year. The parade started at the First Baptist Church and traveled east along Broadway. “We invited the public to be a part of the parade,” MartinezGarcia said. “We had the Chinese Faculty Association participate.
We also had a multicultural sorority, Girl Scout troops and so many others. It was awesome to see such a variety of people. I think that’s what it’s all about for me.” The theme of the parade was “We Are Lubbock,” according to the news release, and it encouraged Hispanics to be involved because they comprise 37 percent of the Lubbock community. Leah Serrano, a sophomore accounting major from Garland, participated in the parade with the Texas Tech League of United Latin American Citizens. “We were asked to participate by Christy,” she said. “She’s always been so supportive of us, and she’s sold on the idea that the younger generation should be involved in the community. The youth should retain their culture even in higher education. We wanted to show support for the community since it has shown support for us.” The Tech LULAC group participated with the Lubbock LULAC council, Serrano said, and it was easy to help decorate the joint float. Various Tech organizations also participated in the parade, including Minorities in STEAM and many fraternities and sororities.
“Hispanics have some of the youngest and fastest-growing population in the country,” MartinezGarcia said. “There were a lot of college students out there, which was great.” The parade is designed to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, according to the news release, but the holiday is a commemoration of the Battle of the Puebla and not Mexican independence. Serrano participated in the parade last year as well, and she said there were more spectators at this year’s parade. “I think bringing the parade back was a good idea because the Hispanic population in Lubbock is growing,” Serrano said. “It’s good to see the community and organizations from campus coming out. It shows that the Hispanic community is present in Lubbock.” Earnest Barton, the first Hispanic in Lubbock to own a radio station, was scheduled to be the grand marshal of the parade, Martinez-Garcia said, but was unable to attend due to an illness. Although he could not attend, Barton dedicated the parade to the youth in the community, which Martinez-Garcia said was signifi-

‘Spider-Man 2’ ropes in $92 million opening NEW YORK (AP) — Spider-Man can still sling it at the box office. “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” debuted with $92 million in North American theaters over the weekend, according to studio estimates Sunday. It was a solid opening for Sony’s Columbia Pictures, which has released five movies about Marvel’s web-slinging superhero in the last 14 years. The release of “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” essentially kicks off Hollywood’s summer season and its annual parade of sequels and spectacle.

the “Spider-Man 2” opening begins the season with a business-as-usual blockbuster performance.

The rebooted “Spider-Man” franchise starring Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone isn’t performing quite as strongly as Sam Raimi’s trilogy with Tobey Maguire. On opening weekends, the Raimi films grossed, in order: $114.1 million, $88.2 million and $151.1 million. The “The Amazing Spider-Man,” also directed by Marc Webb, opened on a Tuesday in 2012, making $62

Abortion should be discussed with respect, caution Francis Cobbinah being prejudicial, condemning and overly censorious in his or her analysis of the subject. Abortion may be somewhat good or evil depending on the angle through which one decides to look at it. Morally, abortion may be wrong, however in some cases, it may be right. Having said that, someone may question when it is good and when it is evil. To answer that question, doctors explain that abortion may be quintessentially good in certain “hard cases.” These are extreme cases where the mother stands risk of losing her life upon hav-
ing the baby or where the mother was raped. These uncompromising situations make abortion the only “life-saving” option available. It is, however, critical that I state for the records that only 1 percent of abortions in America are as a result of hard cases, according to The New York Times. To the evil about abortion, bound4life, an online news blog, reveals that more than 46 million babies die worldwide of abortion annually. That is approximately one baby every two seconds. In the U.S., this silent horror of abortion kills more than
... it is not in anybody’s place to judge someone who has had or who plans to have an abortion.
Summer classes have many positives By JAMIE WANDSCHNEIDER iOwa STaTe Daily (iOwa STaTe U.)
The most looked forward to time of the school year is when classes are officially over and summer vacation begins. For three straight months, students take advantage of not having to worry about school, but they are missing out on a helpful opportunity: summer classes. The idea of taking classes during the summer sounds absurd. After all, summer is supposed to be our break from school, not a continuation of it. There are many benefits to taking summer classes, however, that college students overlook because of the idea of being in school longer. The most obvious reason for taking summer classes is to get ahead on one’s four-year plan. This can mean students are taking classes so they do not have to worry about perquisites for classes the coming fall semester. Also, if someone wants to finish college sooner, summer classes make that dream a reality. Since most students would rather not spend their summer learning, classes are much smaller. By having a lower studentto-teacher ratio, students are able to get much more out of a smaller class. Instructors also have more time to help students one-on-one and make sure that they fully understand the material,
which is perfect for a class that a student may find challenging. That student is able to get the attention that is needed to succeed. Also, this is extremely helpful for students that prefer a smaller class setting. Taking a few classes during the summer can also be a cheaper option than staying an extra semester at a university. A lot of times, summer courses are taken at a community college, which provides a much lower tuition. It is an inexpensive way to get ahead on one’s education. If the community college route is chosen, it can always help keep your ISU GPA in good standing. Say a student struggles with math, but needs it as a general education requirement. By taking the course at a community college during the summer, that student is able to focus on that course instead of a full course load, plus activities. A student has a better chance to succeed if he or she is only focusing on a single subject. Also, only the credit transfers from a community college to a university. That way students do not have to stress about getting a high grade, they just need to get a passing one for it to count. This allows students to not destroy their GPAs because of a class that they find particularly challenging. Since elementary school, our teachers have always told us to keep practicing the
3,700 babies daily, according to Lifenews.com. This means that in a year, abortion kills as many Americans as have been killed on all the battlefields in all of the wars in U.S. history combined. If all of this hope, future and potential goes down the drain unchecked each year, then slowly the American dream is becoming the American nightmare. I hear a lot of abortion advocates make statements such as, “after all what is killed is only a fetus and not a human being.” This is, in my opinion, untrue because the word “fetus” comes from a Latin word mean-
hat if I told you that right now, someone was choosing whether you were going to live or die? What if I told you this choice wasn’t based on what you could or couldn’t do, what you have done in the past or what you would do in the future? And what if I told you that you could do nothing about it? At this moment, thousands of children are in that situation. Someone is choosing whether they are going to live or die without even knowing them. That someone is their mother and that choice is abortion. These sentiments expressed by Lia Mills, a 14-year-old pro-life activist, underscore the worrying tragedy that befalls several unborn children on a daily basis. The issue of abortion is a controversial one that needs to be discussed with extreme caution. Otherwise, one stands the risk of
ing “young one.” It is therefore right to claim that during abortion, a young one’s life is taken without his or her concern. While murder is a heinous crime and may result in serious punishments being meted out to its perpetrators, ironically, abortion, which involves killing, is legal in several countries. Some people also mention that the mother has the right to decide whether or not to have a baby because, after all, having one dramatically impacts her life. While nobody should deny the mother of that right, we must also understand that with our rights and choices come responsibilities, and the mother, in turn, should in no way deny the child of the right to live. Talking about choices, the mother also had the choice to not even have unprotected sex in the first place. While I approve of the hard cases in which abortion cannot be
sidelined, I do not approve of the ones that are done simply because the mother does not want to have a baby or is not ready to have one. This is because the pregnancy might have been a mistake, but from a religious perspective, I would say the baby is certainly not a mistake, for God has his own way of doing things. Moreover, no one knows who or what the child is going to become tomorrow. All things considered, abortion does more harm than good. However, it is not in anybody’s place to judge someone who has had or who plans to have an abortion. The way out is to encourage them instead to choose the right option, which is to preserve the potential, the hope and the future they carry in their wombs.

material we learned so when fall comes the information is still fresh in our heads. Taking summer classes can keep our brains stimulated and keep them in the habit of learning information. Often, summer classes meet everyday, which helps keep the material fresh and can make it much easier to learn new concepts since students are constantly practicing them. When fall semester comes around, students will not have to rewire their brains to get back in the swing of studying. Some might be hesitant to take a summer class, fearing that it will take too much time in already busy schedules. A majority of summer classes last less than a semester and have online options, so students do not have to worry about making it to class. Iowa State’s summer math classes, for example, are only in session for eight weeks, or half a semester. This makes it easy to fit class into a busy schedule and gives students plenty of time to still have a relaxing summer vacation. Summer breaks are placed to give students some time away from school and to unwind after a stressful school year. Taking classes during the summer gives students a chance to gain the benefits of a smaller class setting and still allows them to enjoy a break.

With summer just around the corner, students are itching to toss their textbooks aside and put the pieces of their lives back together after finals. Take heart; there’s just a week left! With three months of unadulterated freedom — not counting those who are taking summer classes — it’s easy to slip into a post-finals induced coma and only come back to consciousness right before school starts again. However, as college students, now is the time to immerse ouselves in a continual learning process that should not be put on hold just because it’s summer break. Don’t get me wrong — summer is the time to wind down and be stressfree — but that doesn’t mean you should completely abandon all forms of academia. Here is a list of activities and resources
that can help keep the old noggin from getting too dusty this summer: Read. With the amount of academic reading required during the school year, most students would rather watch Netflix or cut off their own arm before picking up a book to read for pleasure. And since our generation is so prone to multitasking and reading is a solitary activity, it is often put at the bottom of the list of leisure activities. However, if your summer is one of study abroad, frequent poolside visits and easy living, then there’s really nothing more relaxing than sprawling out in the sun and becoming engrossed in a classic novel. Write. It doesn’t have to be academic, just get those creative juices flowing. Practice makes perfect. Even if you’re just jotting down stray thoughts or how you’re feeling, you’re making the basic process of writing become more familiar and natural. Furthermore, you don’t really know how
good you are at something until you try it. Being able to express your thoughts clearly and honestly will not only help make you a more well rounded person, but will also make those writing assignments for fall semester classes go by faster. Learn. Try learning about something you actually care about. Throughout the school year students are forced to learn about things they could care less about. However, during summer, you’re allotted a brief period to focus on things that interest you. After graduation, the amount of free time you’re used to will diminish exponentially, so there’s really no better time to find out what you’re really passionate about than during your college years and, more specifically, college summers. Good luck on finals, and as you embark on summer break, remember that summer is not just a break, but an opportunity to discover, learn and grow.

By JACOB VALDEZ
The COllegian (kanSaS STaTe U.)
Our country was founded on the idea of freedom, and it’s a big part of what makes us such a great country. Unfortunately, our country’s government has a nasty habit of sticking its nose in our business and eroding these freedoms. I have often heard people say, “You can’t legislate morality.” Then why would anyone think that the opposite is true with obesity? As Ron Swanson from Parks and Recreation once said, “The whole point of this country is if you want to eat garbage, balloon up to 600 pounds, and die of a heart attack at 43, you can. You are free to do so. To me, that’s beautiful.” It’s nobody’s responsibility but ours to keep ourselves in shape. It is naive to think that if somebody really wants to eat five Big Macs or drink a gallon of soda, anything aside from the lack of money in their wallet
is going to stop them. Back during the New York City’s 16 ounce-soda ban of 2013, professor of behavioral economics at Cornell University’s Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management David Just told the Los Angeles Times that when a person wanting to buy a large soda is prevented from doing so, “they’re going to display what we call reactance — a rebelliousness, a determination to circumvent this policy, an attitude of, ‘I’ll show them.’” Beyond that, requiring every fast food vendor to provide a calorie count just makes it more costly for the businesses to operate. Then, they have to increase prices to cover new fees. A 2013 study on mandatory calorie labeling policies by Brian Elbel, associate professor of population health and health policy at the New York University School of Medicine, said researchers “found no difference in calories purchased or fast-food visits after the introduction of the policy.”

Not only do these requirements increase the cost onto the consumer, they could stop new start-ups from happening. Let’s say somebody wanted to open a chain of food trucks or a restaurants. They better know the calorie counts for their menu. They can’t just add the numbers on the packaging of the raw ingredients, either; the calorie calculation process is more complicated than that. Research from Harvard University published in 2011 found, “that cooking substantially increases the energy gained from meat, leading to elevations in body mass that are not attributable to differences in food intake or activity levels.” The study said that their research also highlights, as they said, “a weakness in current food labeling practices.” The story is the same for in-store labeling. Though companies are already required to label their food products with nutrition facts, the FDA is proposing further unnecessary changes to nutrition labels. They want to increase the size and make the font size of calorie counts larger, among various other things. More printer ink, which we all know is insanely expensive, will be used, so obviously we’ll feel it in our wallets to some extent. It is not the place of the government to tell me how much of something I can buy, nor tell a food vendor how to operate, especially when we are supposed to be the land of the free. We are adults; we know that eating an entire pizza or downing a gallon of ice cream isn’t the best idea for our waistlines. And why just leave regulating obesity to the food, when can the government force its view of exercise on the people? It’s not realistic (quite dystopian, actually), but if they’re already telling you how to eat based on health concerns, we all know that a little exercise can help you keep the pounds off and help your overall health. Instead of blaming food and vendors, why can’t people put the weight back on their shoulders to be responsible and lose the pounds they gain?

Red Raiders host final outdoor meet of season By DAWIT HAILE Staff Writer
On May 16-18, Texas Tech track and field is set to compete in the 2014 Big 12 Conference Championships. Those championships are scheduled to take place in Lubbock at the Terry and Linda Fuller Track and Field Complex. During the last weekend of regular season meets, the Red Raider Open on Saturday afternoon served as a dress rehearsal for what to expect at conference. Tech coach Wes Kittley said the meet went exactly as he wanted. It provided a tune-up for the Red Raiders and Lady Raiders to sharpen their skills in live competition. “I felt like we gained a lot of confidence today,” he said. This confidence started with the success Tech junior thrower Kole Weldon and junior jumper JaCorian Duffield enjoyed, Kittley said. Weldon earned first place in the discus throw with a toss measuring 203 7. The throw defeated 2012 U.S. Olympian and former Red Raider Jason Young and made Weldon the leader for the event in the Big 12. Weldon’s career best soon was overshadowed by what occurred in the men’s high jump. Duffield already owned the school records for the high jump in indoor and outdoor competition. Both of those records stood at 7 3.75, but Saturday he looked to improve upon his outdoor record. He first broke the school and facility record on his second attempt at a height of 7 4.25. Duffield said his mother has been anxious for him to improve on his school record marks.
All he told his mother and grandmother in response was if he set one personal record in the meet expect another to come, he said, and the 2013 Outdoor All-American did just that. The bar moved up to a height of 7 5.25, and Duffield cleared it on his first attempt. “Well, I did not jump as strong as I wanted to,” Duffield said, “but as I got to my last two steps I just tried to get my feet down as quick as possible.” Owning the school record is a blessing, Duffield said. However, he said he is simply focused on consistently improving so Tech earns recognition for having the best high jumpers in the nation. With the new school record, Duffield is ranked No. 2 in the NCAA and has climbed to No. 8 in the International Association of Athletics Federations’ World Rankings, according to Tech Athletics. The work done by athletes like Duffield and Weldon is always nice to see, Kittley said, but his attention concentrated on the performances from the underclassmen and other athletes on the team who provide depth. These individuals will determine how well Tech does at the conference meet, especially for the Red Raiders, Kittley said. Like many of her teammates, freshman distance runner Jocelyn Caro earned a personal best in the meet. She ran the 1,500 meters in 4:42.05 minutes, a 2.41-second improvement from her previous personal-best. Caro said there were some nerves before the race because she had never ran this particular event at the home track. There were expectations for a personal best from her, she said. Nevertheless, Caro did not expect to run as
well as she did, with about nine seconds separating her from the second-place finisher and teammate, freshman distance runner Katy Allen. “The fact that I raced in here for the first time is a relief because I finished the race, even though this is not going to be my race event (at conference),” Caro said. “For sure, now, I have confidence because I know the track now, the feel and the competition within it. Tech junior sprinter Trevor Mackey placed a stamp on the meet in the 200-meter dash. Mackey did not win the race, placing second overall, but the 20.47 seconds it took him to finish the race he broke a 24-year-old school record. Former Red Raider David Shepard set the previous record in 1990 by five hundredths of a second. Besides confidence of the team, health was of the utmost importance, Kittley said. No one suffered an injury during competition, so it made the performances more enjoyable, he said. The only injury Tech had to deal with involved Tech junior sprinter Christen Rivers. Rivers could not participate in the meet because she needed emergency surgery on an undisclosed injury, Kittley said. When healthy, Rivers competes in the 200-meter dash, 400-meter dash and the 4x400 relay. She is one fourth of the Tech A relay team that is comprised of senior sprinter Amoy Blake, junior sprinter Montenae Roye-Speight and junior sprinter Cierra White. Tech has about two weeks to prepare before it gears up for the three-day Big 12 Championships scheduled to kick off May 16 in Lubbock.

Sooners sweep Red Raiders Texas Tech baseball swept in to end 2014 regular season weekend series by Jayhawks The Texas Tech softball team ended its regular season over the weekend, getting swept by No. 10 Oklahoma. The three-game series began Friday with a 5-0 victory for the Sooners. Oklahoma sophomore pitcher Kelsey Stevens held Tech to just two hits in a completegame shutout. After the game, Tech coach Shanon Hays said despite being shutout, the team still had some positives against a tough team. “I honestly thought we played pretty well tonight,” Hays said in a Tech Athletics news release. “Oklahoma has a good ball club and they hit the ball well. I told the team afterwards to forget about this one. We’ll regroup tonight and look to even the series tomorrow.” The series continued Saturday
when Oklahoma won the series with a 5-1 victory. Tech freshman outfielder Kierra Miles recorded the Red Raiders’ only run with a solo homerun in the fifth inning. Sophomore pitcher Cara Custer took the loss in her second complete game of the season, according to the release. Hays said Tech was over aggressive at the plate and it took them out of the game. “We had too many strikeouts at the plate to beat a team like OU,” he said. “I still believe we can come back and play well tomorrow but we just can’t strike out that many times. I thought we pitched and played defense good enough to win today. We just need to get the bats going a little bit.” Oklahoma finished off the series Sunday with a 13-0 five-
inning run-rule victory. The Sooners scored 11 runs in the two innings which proved to be an insurmountable lead. Despite the sweep, the Red Raiders earned a fourth place finish in the Big 12 Conference. It is the highest finish in the conference since the 2001 season, according to the release. Tech ends the regular season with a 35-19 overall record and 8-10 in Big 12 play. The Red Raiders will now wait to see if they have earned a spot in the NCAA Championship. The NCAA selection show will air at 9 p.m. Sunday on ESPN2. If Tech is selected for the championship, the NCAA Regional round will be hosted May 16-18 on various campuses.
The Texas Tech baseball team won three straight weekend series, but when it traveled to Kansas this weekend, that all changed. The Jayhawks were outhit by the Red Raiders 7-6 Friday night, according to a news release from Tech Athletics, but Tech starting pitcher Ryan Moseley had a season-high five walks in five innings of work, giving up six runs en route to Kansas’ 11-3 win. Tech freshman infielder Tyler Neslony went 2-for-4 in the loss, according
to the release, extending his hitting streak to 10 games and reaching base for the 22nd straight game. Tech dropped game two of the series on Saturday, 6-4, according to the release, falling behind early and never being able to come back. Neslony extended his hitting streak to 11 games with a single in the fifth, according to the release, and Tech junior infielder Bryant Burleson led the Red Raiders at the plate, going 3-for-5. Tech junior relief pitcher Dominic
Moreno kept the Red Raiders in the game, allowing only one unearned run in his four and one-third innings pitched, but Tech still was not able to come back. The Red Raiders tried to salvage the series with a win on Sunday, but fell 4-1. Tech will play a midweek game on the road Tuesday against Dallas Baptist then return home for the final regular season series against West Virginia. ➤➤firstname.lastname@example.org

Antonio coach Gregg Popovich, who was screaming at officials over the severity of the foul. The flagrant foul energized the Spurs, who went on a 14-2 run to take a 51-27 lead with 8 minutes remaining in the first half. Duncan dove into the Mavericks bench during that run to save a loose ball and start a fast break. Later, Vince Carter tackled Ginobili in the lane three minutes into the second quarter. The play was initially ruled a flagrant foul but was reversed when reviews showed Carter was trying to hold Ginobili up as both tumbled out of bounds. San Antonio never led by less than 14 points in the second half.

Pierce’s block stops Raptors comeback short, Nets move on to second round TORONTO (AP) — Slowed by foul trouble and struggling with his shot, Paul Pierce still found a way to come up big for the Brooklyn Nets. And, right when they needed him most. Pierce blocked Kyle Lowry’s shot from the lane on the final play of the game, and the Nets held off the Toronto Raptors 104-103 in Game 7 on Sunday to advance to the second round of the playoffs. “I just happened to be in the right place at the right time,” Pierce said. “I saw him split the defenders, I
saw him go up, I went up with him. “I got my hand on the ball — game over.” The Nets will begin the conference semifinals at Miami on Tuesday night, facing the two-time defending NBA champion Heat. Pierce had more fouls (three) than points (none) in the second half, but his only block of the game punctuated a hard-fought series win for the Nets. Leading by one, Brooklyn used its final timeout after failing to inbound the ball. On the second
opportunity, Shaun Livingston tried a lob pass to Pierce, but Terrence Ross got a hand on the ball and then knocked it off Pierce and out of bounds for a turnover. “I rushed it a little bit,” Livingston said. “I’m thinking Paul is going to hold him off. He kind of slipped there. Once he slipped, it was a jump ball and Terrence Ross is probably the last guy you want to throw a jump ball to.” Toronto used a timeout and gave the ball to Lowry, whose driving shot was blocked by Pierce as
time expired. Lowry lay prone in the key as the Nets surged onto the court in celebration. “I really didn’t have a great offensive game,” Pierce said. “I was in foul trouble for most of the night. Sometimes you’ve got to find ways to help your ballclub win.” Nets coach Jason Kidd said Brooklyn’s defense “bent a little” but didn’t break, thanks mostly to Pierce’s clutch play. “Paul said it best, that’s why he’s here, to make plays,” Kidd said. “He didn’t have a great game, but it only takes one play to help a team win and that’s what he did tonight.” Brooklyn went 4-0 against Miami in the regular season, but that didn’t mean much to Brooklyn’s Kevin Garnett. “That goes out the window,” he said. “This is the postseason. They’re playing very well. They went right through Charlotte without a beat and they have a lot of confidence.” Joe Johnson scored 13 of his 26 points in the fourth quarter to lead the Nets. Marcus Thornton scored 17, Garnett had 12 points and 11 rebounds for his first double-double of the series, and Deron Williams added 13 points.
