University cancels Homecoming parade Students will not see a parade for this year’s Homecoming as the festivity has been canceled because of the 11 a.m. football kickoff Oct. 12. Although the game, which will be broadcast on Fox Sports 1, according to a news release, interferes with the Homecoming parade, it will not affect the “Tech loves the 90s”- themed activities, which begins Monday. “Unfortunately, due to the early kickoff the parade is not logistically possible this year,” said Jon Mark Bernal, associate director for Texas Tech Student Union and Activities, in the release. “We look forward to the parade’s return in 2014, and in the meantime we look forward to cheering on the Red Raiders in their nationally televised appearance Saturday morning. The rest of the week’s events will continue as scheduled.” ➤➤email@example.com
UN demanding aid access in Syria UNITED NATIONS (AP) — The president of the U.N. Security Council said Monday that many members are pressing to follow up on last week’s resolution to eliminate Syria’s chemical weapons with a demand that the government allow immediate access for desperately needed humanitarian aid. Australian Ambassador and council president Gary Quinlan said a draft Security Council statement calls for delivering access in “the most effective ways, including across conflict lines and, where appropriate, across borders from neighboring countries ...” if necessary to bypass meddling from President Bashar Assad’s regime in Damascus. The Security Council had been effectively deadlocked on the Syria crisis for more than two years until it unanimously adopted a resolution Friday endorsing a U.S.-Russian plan to secure and destroy Syria’s chemical weapons stockpile.

Johnson: Tech should offer healthier food choices
Unity frays but holds amid shutdown
WASHINGTON (AP) — A threatened government shutdown imminent, House Republicans scaled back their demands to delay the nation’s health care law Monday night as the price for essential federal funding, but President Barack Obama and Democrats rejected the proposals as quickly as they were made. “We’re at the brink,” said Sen. Barbara Mikulski, D-Md. On a long day and night in the Capitol, the Senate torpedoed one GOP attempt to tie government financing to changes in “Obamacare.” House Republicans countered with a second despite unmistakable signs their unity was fraying — and

to the nation’s parks and other attractions. Some critical parts of the government — from the military to air traffic controllers — would remain open. As lawmakers squabbled, President Barack Obama spoke bluntly about House Republicans. “You don’t get to extract a ransom for doing your job, for doing what you’re supposed to be doing anyway, or just because there’s a law there that you don’t like,” he said. Speaking of the health care law that undergoes a major expansion on Tuesday, he said emphatically, “That funding is already in place. You can’t shut it down.” House Speaker John Boehner responded a few hours later on the House floor. “The American
people don’t want a shutdown and neither do I,” he said. Yet, he added, the new health care law “is having a devastating impact. ... Something has to be done.” For all the Republican defiance, it appeared that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and fellow Democrats had the upper hand in the fast-approaching end game, and that Republicans might soon have to decide whether to allow the government to shut down for the first time in 17 years — or come away empty-handed from a bruising struggle with Obama.

Artist speaks to students, uses unconventional materials in work By MIKAEL GONZALES Staff WritEr
Crystal Wagner, a visiting artist to Texas Tech, gave a lecture on her recent works in installation art at 6:30 p.m. Monday in the Art building. According to a news release, Wagner is an assistant professor and head of printmaking at Georgia College. In her lecture, she used a PowerPoint to describe her view on the use of technology versus nature. In her pieces, Wagner said she uses unconventional materials such as tablecloth, paper, chicken wire and plastic. An interesting moment in her career, she said, was working with pipe cleaners. Wagner said her daughter did not appreciate the mess that came along with the material. “I have a 4-year-old daughter,” she said, “and when she saw me working with these she said, ‘Can you please move your art?’” Although Wagner said during the lecture she does not plan out her works, she draws almost every night to keep ideas running through her mind and said it is a important part of her life. “I always say that drawing is the core of who I am,” she said. Wagner said she encourages students to keep a sketchbook or a portfolio of their works to reference back on and said she had a very important piece of advice for undergraduate students to remember. “Try it all,” she said. “Learn it all.”

CRYSTAL WAGNER, A visiting artist from Milledgeville, Ga., speaks to a group of art and design students Monday in the Art building. She showed examples of her work and images of the travels that inspired her artwork.
Jessica Moore, a graduate student from Miami, said the way Wagner used the medium of printmaking was refreshing and innovative. Moore is one of the art students who had the opportunity to work with
Wagner earlier in the day to prepare for her show at noon Wednesday. “I’ve never seen anything like that before how she used multiple materials to make this art piece come to life,” she said. “I was helping her do the screen
printing and the relief printing.” Print making, Moore said, opens up a lot of possibilities for artists to communicate their message. ARTIST continued on Page 2 ➤➤
Tech equestrian team prepares Red Raiders remain focused on for next competition in Canyon preparing for Jayhawks game Staff WritEr
Senate Democrats promptly rejected it, as well. That left the next move up to Speaker John Boehner and his House Republican rank and file, with just two hours remaining before the shutdown deadline of midnight EDT. The stock market dropped on fears that political gridlock between the White House and a tea party-heavy Republican Party would prevail, though analysts suggested significant damage to the national economy was unlikely unless a shutdown lasted more than a few days. Still, a shutdown would send hundreds of thousands of workers home and inconvenience millions of people who rely on federal services or are drawn

The Texas Tech equestrian team started off the semester with the biggest team in its history and a high ranking in its first show in El Reno, Okla., in September. The Western division of the team competed in El Reno, Okla., coming out with a team ranking of fourth place on the first day of competition, and third place on the second day. On top of the overall team’s placing, many individual riders placed, including first place winners Morgan McCoy, Mackenzie White, Kennedy Harrison, Sarah Claughton and Laurie Tolboom. “We took the most people that we’ve ever taken as far as the western team goes,” Claughton, a junior animal science major from New Braunfels, said. “We took 18 people where we normally take 10. For having a lot of new talent and inexperienced riders as far as showing goes, they
did really well. It’s really hard to teach someone how to show when they’ve never really been around showing.” The two disciplines that fall within the equestrian team are English and Western. Although they are the same team, they compete in two completely separate shows and the saddles and riding styles are different. Claughton said English riding does flat work, which are rail classes. The riders go through the paces and the higher ranked English riders do different kinds of jumping. The riders are judged based on their posture and positioning and the judging is less about how the horse performs than it is in Western. The Western team has a top division of open riders who practice reining while there are four other divisions of riders who do horsemanship. The horsemanship riders are judged on riding, which includes a pattern and rail work, Claughton said. COMPETITION continued on Page 2 ➤➤

For first-year coach Kliff Kingsbury, this week’s matchup against Kansas (2-1, 0-0) pits the former gunslinger — who can still sling it — against his first offensive coordinator in the National Football League. Kingsbury has met many coordinators since, yet he still recalls Jayhawks coach Charlie Weis’ approach to the game as if the two were in the film room just last night. “The first thing that jumps out is his work ethic,” he said. “He’d spend the night up at the office and was up there at all hours. (Weis) obviously (is) a great quarterback mentor having worked with Tom Brady. (Weis) always had great game plans. I thought he was one of the best game planners I’ve ever been around on a week-to-week basis. Learned a lot of Xs and Os, and it was a really positive experience up there.”
Now Kingsbury, who admittedly arrives at Texas Tech’s Football Training Facility earlier than any other coach, is making his own name as a head coach with the Red Raiders rattling off four consecutive wins to jumpstart the 2013 football season. Although Tech (4-0, 1-0) has seen early success this season, Kingsbury remains adamant the Red Raiders will continue to play motivated football. “Our guys know,” he said. “They have a chip on their shoulder. They picked us eighth and ninth all year. So there isn’t a game after this.” One area of concern, Kingsbury said, is the ability to involve senior receiver Eric Ward in Tech’s offensive game plan. Ward logged 13 catches for 150 yards in Tech’s season-opener against Southern Methodist. However, in the three games following the victory against the Mustangs, Ward has six catches for 72 yards.

Some Republicans balked, moderates and conservatives alike. Rep. Phil Gingrey of Georgia said it felt as if Republicans were retreating, given their diminishing demands, and Rep. Scott Rigell of Virginia said there was not unanimity when the rank and file met to discuss a next move. Yet for the first time since the showdown began more than a week ago, there was also public dissent from the Republican strategy that has been carried out at the insistence of lawmakers working in tandem with GOP Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas. Rep. Charles Dent, R-Pa., said he was willing to vote for stand-alone legislation that would keep the government running and contained no health carerelated provisions. “I would be supportive of it, and I believe the votes are there in the House to pass it at that point,” the fifth-term congressman said. Other Republicans sought to blame Democrats for any shutdown, but Dent conceded that Republicans would bear the blame, whether or not they deserved it. Hours before the possible shutdown, the Senate voted 54-46 to reject the House-passed measure that would have kept the government open but would
have delayed implementation of the health care law for a year and permanently repealed a medical device tax that helps finance it. In response, House Republicans sought different concessions in exchange for allowing the government to remain open. They called for a one-year delay in a requirement in the health care law for individuals to purchase coverage. The same measure also would require members of Congress and their aides as well as the president, vice president and the administration’s political appointees to bear the full cost of their own coverage by barring the government from making the customary employer contribution. “This is a matter of funding the government and providing fairness to the American people,” said Boehner. “Why wouldn’t members of Congress vote for it?” The vote was 228-201, with a dozen Republicans opposed and nine Democrats in favor. Unimpressed, the White House issued a veto threat against the bill and Senate Democrats swatted it on a 54-46 party line vote about an hour later. Obama followed up his public remarks with phone calls to Boehner and the three other top leaders of Congress, telling Republicans he would continue to oppose attempts to delay or cut federal financing of the health care law. Boehner spokesman Brendan Buck
said the House’s top Republican told the president that the health care law was costing jobs and that it was unfair that businesses were getting exemptions but American families were not. The impact of a shutdown would be felt unevenly. Many low-to-moderate-income borrowers and first-time homebuyers seeking government-backed mortgages could face delays, and Obama said veterans’ centers would be closed. About 800,000 federal workers, many already reeling from the effect of automatic budget cuts, would be ordered to report to work Tuesday for about four hours — but only to carry out shutdownrelated chores such as changing office voicemail messages and completing time cards. Some critical services such as patrolling the borders and inspecting meat would continue. Social Security benefits would be sent, and the Medicare and Medicaid health care programs for the elderly and poor would continue to pay doctors and hospitals. U.S. troops were shielded from any damage to their wallets when the Senate approved legislation assuring the military would be paid in the in the event of a shutdown. The House passed the bill early Sunday morning. “I know some other employees, if you don’t have money saved, it’s going to be difficult,” said Thelma Manley, who has
spent seven years as a staff assistant with the Internal Revenue Service during a 30-year career in government. As for herself, she said, “I’m a Christian, I trust in God wholeheartedly and my needs will be met.” She added, “I do have savings, so I can go to the reserve, so to speak.” The last time the government shut down, in 1996, Republicans suffered significant political damage, and thenPresident Bill Clinton’s political fortunes were revived in the process. Now, as then, Republicans control the House, and senior lawmakers insist even a shutdown isn’t likely to threaten their majority in the 2014 elections. “We may even gain seats,” Oregon Rep. Greg Walden, who chairs the party campaign committee, said recently. For all the controversy about other matters, the legislation in question is a spending bill — and there was little if any disagreement about the spendingrelated issues. The House and Senate have agreed to fix spending for a wide swath of federal programs at an annual level of $986 billion for the budget year that begins Oct. 1, the same as for the 12 months just ending. Without separate legislation to make further reductions, across-the-board cuts would automatically take effect early next year that would reduce the level to $967 billion.
coach designates a point rider. The riders are unaware who the specific rider is to help maintain the quality of each individual performance. Claughton said their points count for the team depending on how the point rider places in their class. At the end of the show, all the divisions are added together and the sum will be the team points. “I’m excited to see our potential be met this year as far as being successful at shows,” Claughton said. “We always get a lot of talent on the English side and it’s really exciting to see all the talent and possibilities that are available for the Western team this year. I know that both teams are going to be very successful this year.” Claughton said a normal practice for the Western team consists of exercises to focus on balance and leg positioning. The riders also practice holding their hands in different ways to practice securing a good seat. Since a large part of their shows focus on patterns, they also practice different patterns. As people came in from all across the state to compete in a horse show put
together by the National Reining Horse Association, the Equestrian team took the opportunity to have a fundraiser, Claughton said. Claughton said the competitions take place on Friday and Saturday, so Thursday is typically a prep day for anyone competing. Since many of the horses need to be warmed up and prepared for the upcoming show, the Equestrian team offered them a horse wash, including washing the horse and conditioning the mane and tail for a fee. The team also does other fundraisers, such as team nights with restaurants, where the team will get a percentage of the night’s earnings. The money raised in these fundraisers goes mainly to gas and hotel expenses the team spends in traveling, Claughton said. The Western and English teams both travel to two shows per semester, but there are multiple shows occurring in the given location each time they travel, she said. The English team competes next on Saturday and Sunday at Tulane University Hunt Seat Show in New Orleans. The Western team competes next at West
Texas A&M University Western Show on Oct. 26 in Canyon. Haven Harris, a senior animal science major from Dallas, is taking part in her fourth year on the team and said she joined as a freshman because she wanted to be around horses. She said she thought the team would be a great way to meet people and experience something she had previously never done. Harris said the team is exactly what she expected it to be — she has made many friends through it and loves being a part of a team with them. “I am really excited about the group of people we have this year,” she said. “With all the new kids that we have coming in, I feel like it’s a really strong group. That showed in our competition this weekend. This is the best group of riders that we’ve had in a long time. I’m really excited if we’re already doing so well to see what we’re going to do later. A couple years ago when I was on the team, it had six members. It’s really fun to see it grow and see us getting much better.”
focusing on forests and shrubbery. Wagner said she did not focus on marine life as much as land life because she is more accustomed to seeing large forests and plant life in her home state. “The lecture explored my technical and conceptual approach to my artwork,” she said. “I just wanted to share with people my process.” Wagner talked more about her installation after the students finished their questions.
Working with the students, she said, was something she appreciated at Tech and said together they hoped to transform the empty space in the Art building into something out of the ordinary. “I think about spectacle or the wonder are all associated with something out of place and something so big you don’t know how to deal with it,” she said. “So I want to evoke that kind of sense in the viewer.”

Venezuela expels top US diplomat, 2 other envoys
CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — President Nicolas Maduro announced Monday the expulsion of the top U.S. diplomat in Venezuela and two other embassy employees for allegedly conspiring with “the extreme right” to sabotage the economy and power grid. The U.S. Embassy said it had not yet received notification and called the accusations unfounded. Maduro made the announcement during a live TV appearance and said they had 48 hours to leave the country. “Out of Venezuela,” the leftist leader shouted, then added in English: “Yankees go home!” Maduro said a group of embassy officials that his government had been following for months was “dedicated to meeting with the Venezuelan extreme right, to financing it and feeding its actions to sabotage the electrical system and the Venezuela economy.” “I have proof here in my hands,” he said, though he did not offer any details on the diplomats’ alleged transgressions other than to say they met with opposition and
labor leaders in the southwestern state of Bolivar, which is home to a number of troubled state-owned foundries and Venezuela’s main hydroelectric plant. Expelled were Charge D’Affaires Kelly Keiderling, the top embassy official in the absence of an ambassador, consular officer David Moo and Elizabeth Hoffman, who works in the embassy’s political section. The latter two were identified by the embassy, which said it had not received official notification from the Foreign Ministry. “We completely reject the Venezuelan government’s allegations of U.S. government involvement in any type of conspiracy to destabilize the Venezuela government,” the U.S. Embassy said in a statement. It said the recent trip by Keiderling, Moo and Hoffman consisted of “normal diplomatic engagement,” adding: “We maintain regular contacts across the Venezuelan political spectrum, including the ruling party.” The expulsions come as Venezuela’s economy looks increasingly troubled ahead of Dec. 8 municipal
elections. Annual inflation is at more than 45 percent and the government is running short of foreign currency. Venezuela and the United States have been without ambassadors since 2010, when the late President Hugo Chavez refused to accept a newly named U.S. ambassador. In 2008, Chavez expelled then-U.S. Ambassador Patrick Duddy in “solidarity” with Bolivia, which was booting the U.S. ambassador there, but allowed him to return the following year. Keiderling arrived at the embassy in July 2011 as deputy chief of mission after previously working in embassies including in Moldova, Kyrgyzstan, Botswana, the Dominican Republic and the U.S. Interests section in Cuba. The oil-rich OPEC member country has been plagued by worsening power outages since 2010. The opposition blames neglect and poor maintenance, while alleging mismanagement and corruption at struggling state-owned aluminum, iron and bauxite foundries in Bolivar.

US-raised immigrants try to return LAREDO (AP) — Nearly three dozen migrants marched across the U.S.-Mexico border without papers Monday, the latest group of a younger generation brought to the U.S. illegally as children that seeks to confront headon immigration policies they consider unjust. Wearing a colorful array of graduation-style caps and gowns, 34 young people who spent long stretches of their childhoods in U.S. cities like Phoenix and Boston chanted “undocumented and unafraid” as they crossed the Rio Grande into Texas. Customs officials separated them from regular pedestrian traffic and the rest of their entourage before beginning lengthy interviews. The risks born by their parents’ generation involved dangerous journeys through darkness across desert and river. The teenagers and 20-somethings who crossed Monday face what could be weeks in detention and possible deportation as part of what could be a growing form of public protest. They follow the “Dream Nine,” a smaller group that attempted to enter the U.S. at Nogales, Arizona, in July. They requested asylum and were released after about two weeks in detention to await their turn before a judge. Monday’s contingent expected something similar. U.S. Customs and Border Protection, whose officers determine who is admitted at the border, said privacy laws prohibited it from discussing any individual cases. At the heart of both groups’ protest was a change to U.S. immigration regulations made in June 2012 giving something called deferred action to immigrants who were brought to the country illegally as children. Those who were in the U.S. at that time and met a list of criteria they could apply for a renewable two-year deferment and
work authorization. But the young people crossing Monday had left the U.S., either voluntarily or through deportation, months, weeks or even just days before the deferred action announcement, commonly known as DACA. “We look at this action today and the Dream Nine as a type of extension of DACA,” said David Bennion, an immigration lawyer travelling with the group. “What we would like to see is the people who left, like these 30 who otherwise would have qualified for DACA, to have that be taken into consideration.”
There were several minors in Monday’s group, including 17-year-old Luis Enrique Rivera Lopez. He came to the border from Guasabe in Sinaloa, a Mexican state that he had known only by its reputation for drugs and violence before going there from Los Angeles early last year. “I wanted to have a sense of my roots,” Rivera said of his decision to return to Mexico, where he hadn’t been since he was 1. “I wanted to know where I was from.” He considered studying to become a chef specializing in the seafood dishes of Sinaloa, but was forced to start high school over again in Mexico.

WASHINGTON (AP) — In a rare move, the top Marine on Monday forced two generals into retirement after concluding they should be held to account for failing to secure a base in Afghanistan against a Taliban attack that killed two Marines. Gen. James Amos, the commandant of the Marine Corps, said in announcing his decision that Maj. Gen. Charles M. Gurganus and Maj. Gen. Gregg A. Sturdevant “did not take adequate force protection measures” at Camp Bastion, a sprawling British-run airfield in southwestern
Afghanistan that was the Taliban target. The Sept. 14, 2012, attack by 15 Taliban fighters caught the Marines by surprise and resulted in the deaths of Lt. Col. Christopher K. Raible, 40, and Sgt. Bradley W. Atwell, 27. The Taliban also destroyed six Marine Harrier fighter jets valued at $200 million and badly damaged others. It was one of the most stunning and damaging attacks of the war. Fourteen of the 15 attackers were killed; one was captured. Gurganus, who was the top American commander in that
region of Afghanistan at the time, did not order a formal investigation after the attack. In June, Amos asked U.S. Central Command to investigate, and he said he decided to take action against the two generals after reviewing the results of that investigation. “While I am mindful of the degree of difficulty the Marines in Afghanistan faced in accomplishing a demanding combat mission with a rapidly declining force, my duty requires me to remain true to the timeless axioms relating to command responsibility and accountability,” Amos said.

Tech should offer more healthy food choices, make healthy eating more convenient
y story is the same as many before me. It’s a simple parable about not wanting to conform and wanting to keep my own goals and interests no matter what may be against me. Most everyone has been in a position where they know it would be so much easier to simply cave and adhere to the pressures against them. This feeling is where my story begins. I’m looking for something to eat on campus. There are many options, but I want something good, not just tasty, but something good for me that will give me energy and help fight the sluggish feelings. I decide on ham and broccoli alfredo. Broccoli and pasta is one of my favorite combinations. It smells so good and I am so excited. I take my first bite and find no broccoli. I try again and the cycle continues. Apparently, what the menu meant
Mollie Johnson to say was 99 percent ham and 1 percent broccoli. I only found two small pieces of broccoli in my hamsaturated pasta. In another similar instance, I asked for lettuce or spinach on my quesadilla and was told no. I asked if I could substitute a veggie patty for a beef patty on a green chili cheeseburger, but was told no as well. My dining hall advertises veggie and supreme pizza, but since the day I arrived, I have only ever seen sausage, pepperoni and cheese. Another thing I check for is milk,

but it seems like they’re always out of stock here. It’s no surprise, however, that the soda is always overflowing. The scenarios continue until you get to the place I am in right now: fighting the urge to conform to this meat, cheese and bread around-theclock attitude. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one-third of American adults are obese with associated health care costs around $147 billion per year. This is only on the rise. Could part of the issue be that people who go to college and live on campus can’t afford to eat off campus too much and fight a losing battle trying to eat right? There are some places deemed as “healthy” or “smart” on campus.

Residence Complex. However, these places have limited hours compared to all the other places on campus. If you’re schedule isn’t aligned with the stars just right, you won’t be able to eat at these places, making them essentially nonexistent. Then we have what I am going to refer to as the sugary drink issue. The sugary drink issue is an enormous pet peeve of mine. I absolutely cannot stand it when a place is out of milk or V8, but has an overflowing abundance of soda and sugary juice, which a lot of people don’t know are just as unhealthy as soda. I will say this for Texas Tech: It does always have water bottles. However, I think a place nourishing the minds of students should have just as many nourishing drinks available, with actual vitamins as those crammed with sugar and artificial sweeteners — just plain Jane simple •Publishing information Periodical Postage paid by The Daily Toreador, Media and Communication building, Texas Tech University, Lubbock, Texas, 79409.

nutrition. The soda may still go better, and that’s fine, as it’s the students’ prerogative. However, by providing and staying stocked on good drinks other than water, no one can say the option wasn’t there. Plus, it plants a seed. If people see something enough, they are more likely to try it. After the sugary drink issue, it would be nice to have more options with vegetables. I cannot eat salad, rice bowls, the sides from the chicken places or yogurt every day of my life. Most people need variety. However, I surely am not interested in eating bread, meat and cheese just arranged in different ways — in which there is plenty of variety — all the time either. To solve this requires similar antics to the sugary drink issue. If there’s a meat pizza option, there should be a vegetable one •Letters The Daily Toreador welcomes letters from readers.

More babies share parents’ beds despite SIDS risks CHICAGO (AP) — The government’s latest infant bedsharing numbers show a troubling trend: the percentage of U.S. babies sleeping with parents or another child more than doubled since the early 1990s, despite public health messages linking the practice with sudden infant death syndrome. Nearly 14 percent of adults, mostly mothers, surveyed in 2010 said their infants usually shared a bed, either with parents or another child, instead of sleeping alone in a crib. That was up from about 7 percent in 1993, and the increase was mainly among blacks and Hispanics. The practice had leveled off among whites after an increase in the 1990s. Bed-sharing was most common among blacks; nearly one-third of those surveyed said their infants usually shared a bed. “That’s a concern because we know that blacks are at increased risk for SIDS,” said study coauthor Marian Willinger of the
National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, which funded the study. “We want to eliminate as many risks as we can for everybody, particularly in that population where we’re seeing increasing disparities.” SIDS refers to deaths in the first year of life that remain unexplained after autopsies and thorough investigations of the death scene and infants’ medical history. Accidental suffocation in bed is also more common among black infants, although the study didn’t examine infant deaths or accidents associated with bed-sharing. The study was published online Monday in JAMA Pediatrics. The government began annual surveys on infant sleep practices in 1993, after the American Academy of Pediatrics recommended that infants sleep on their backs to prevent SIDS. The new study analyzed 1993-2010 telephone surveys involving nearly 19,000 parents with infants up to 7 months old. More than half the
participants since 2006 said doctors had never mentioned bedsharing or its risks. “That in and of itself is kind of shocking ... because the recommendations have long been out,” said SIDS expert Dr. Fern R. Hauck, a family medicine professor at the University of Virginia. About 2,000 U.S. infants died from SIDS in 2010 and the rate has been flat for the past few years. Causes are unknown but circumstances that increase risks include premature birth, parents’ smoking and sleeping on soft surfaces with pillows and blankets. Many doctors think bed-sharing is risky because sleeping parents could roll onto infants, or they could get tangled in loose bedding. A JAMA Pediatrics editorial questions whether bed-sharing per
se is dangerous, citing a study that found many SIDS infants had slept on sofas — potentially riskier than beds — with parents who smoked or had been drinking, factors that could have contributed. Bed-sharing has benefits including making it easier for moms to breast-feed at night, the editorial says. The pediatricians’ group recommends that infants sleep near parents’ bed to facilitate breastfeeding and supports governmentsponsored campaigns emphasizing that placing babies to sleep on their backs on a firm mattress and not in a bed shared with others is the safest sleep practice. Those efforts are credited with reducing the number of infants placed to sleep on their stomachs since the 1990s but appear to have had little effect on bed-sharing.

France: ‘Let us work Sundays!’ PARIS (AP) — When economic inequalities helped foment the French Revolution, the legendary cry from on high was, “Let them eat cake!” Now, as modern France struggles economically, the cry from below is, “Let us work!” As France battles high unemployment, rising taxes and pinched pocketbooks, the Socialist government has said its main focus is job creation. Now, critics of a more-than-century-old law that prevents most stores from opening on Sundays say revising it would be a good step in that direction. Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault appeared to respond to that call on Monday, ordering a review of the law that labor unions and Roman Catholic faithful cherish, but that consumers — and increasingly some workers — decry. Under French law, Sunday is a mandatory day off to help ensure rest and the quality of life, although some retailers in tourist areas or special commercial zones can get exemptions. Critics say the protections go too far, crimping modern lifestyles and putting France at a competitive disadvantage. A sporadic debate revived last week after a court, ruling on an unfair-competition lawsuit brought by a rival hardware vendor, ordered home improvement chains Leroy Merlin and Castorama to shut 14
Paris-area stores on Sundays. It threatened fines of 120,000 euros ($162,000) on each store that violated the rules. The stores got temporary waivers, but their employees were growling — insisting that Sunday openings give them needed extra pay and suit customers who find it hard to shop during the work week bustle. “We want to work Sunday! Let us work!” said Gerard Fillon, spokesman for an association of employees whose name translates as Sunday’s Handymen, and a Leroy Merlin employee. At one store in Gennevilliers, some employees dressed in T-shirts with “Yes Week End” written on them. Ayrault commissioned a panel to report on the complex issue by late November. “The government notes that Sunday rest is an essential principle in terms of protecting workers and social cohesion” while recognizing that “the existence of Sunday work is a reality,” his office said in a noncommittal statement. The current debate stems from a 2009 move by then-President Nicolas Sarkozy’s center-right government that eased back curbs on Sunday store openings. The efforts faced political opposition and resulted in a mish-mash of legal waivers, special-zone exemptions and other loopholes.

World not ready for aging population (AP) — The world is aging so fast that most countries are not prepared to support their swelling numbers of elderly people, according to a global study going out Tuesday by the United Nations and an elder rights group. The report ranks the social and economic well-being of elders in 91 countries, with Sweden coming out on top and Afghanistan at the bottom. It reflects what advocates for the old have been warning, with increasing urgency, for years: Nations are simply not working quickly enough to cope with a population graying faster than ever before. By the year 2050, for the first time in history, seniors over the age of 60 will outnumber children under the age of 15. Truong Tien Thao, who runs a small tea shop on the sidewalk near his home in Hanoi, Vietnam, is 65 and acutely aware that he, like millions of others, is plunging into old age without a safety net. He wishes he could retire, but he and his 61-yearold wife depend on the $50 a month they earn from the tea shop. And so every day, Thao rises early to open the stall at 6 a.m. and works until 2 p.m., when his wife takes over until closing. “People at my age should have a rest, but I still have to work to make our ends meet,” he says, while waiting for customers at the shop, which sells green tea, cigarettes and chewing
gum. “My wife and I have no pension, no health insurance. I’m scared of thinking of being sick — I don’t know how I can pay for the medical care.” Thao’s story reflects a key point in the report, which was released early to The Associated Press: Aging is an issue across the world. Perhaps surprisingly, the report shows that the fastest aging countries are developing ones, such as Jordan, Laos, Mongolia, Nicaragua and Vietnam, where the number of older people will more than triple by 2050. All ranked in the bottom half of the index. The Global AgeWatch Index (www.globalagewatch.org) was created by elder advocacy group HelpAge International and the U.N. Population Fund in part to address a lack of international data on the extent and impact of global aging. The index, released on the U.N.’s International Day of Older Persons, compiles data from the U.N., World Health Organization, World Bank and other global agencies, and analyzes income, health, education, employment and age-friendly environment in each country. The index was welcomed by elder rights advocates, who have long complained that a lack of data has thwarted their attempts to raise the issue on government agendas. “Unless you measure something,
it doesn’t really exist in the minds of decision-makers,” said John Beard, Director of Ageing and Life Course for the World Health Organization. “One of the challenges for population aging is that we don’t even collect the data, let alone start to analyze it. ... For example, we’ve been talking about how people are living longer, but I can’t tell you people are living longer and sicker, or longer in good health.” The report fits into an increasingly complex picture of aging and what it means to the world. On the one hand, the fact that people are living longer is a testament to advances in health care and nutrition, and advocates emphasize that the elderly should be seen not as a burden but as a resource. On the other, many countries still lack a basic social protection floor that provides income, health care and housing for their senior citizens. Afghanistan, for example, offers no pension to those not in the government. Life expectancy is 59 years for men and 61 for women, compared to a global average of 68 for men and 72 for women, according to U.N. data. That leaves Abdul Wasay struggling to survive. At 75, the former cook and blacksmith spends most of his day trying to sell toothbrushes and
toothpaste on a busy street corner in Kabul’s main market. The job nets him just $6 a day — barely enough to support his wife. He can only afford to buy meat twice a month; the family relies mainly on potatoes and curried vegetables. “It’s difficult because my knees are weak and I can’t really stand for a long time,” he says. “But what can I do? It’s even harder in winter, but I can’t afford treatment.” Although government hospitals are free, Wasay complains that they provide little treatment and hardly any medicine. He wants to stop working in three years, but is not sure his children can support him. He says many older people cannot find work because they are not strong enough to do day labor, and some resort to begging. “You have to keep working no matter how old you are — no one is rich enough to stop,” he says. “Life is very difficult.” Many governments have resisted tackling the issue partly because it is viewed as hugely complicated, negative and costly — which is not necessarily true, says Silvia Stefanoni, chief executive of HelpAge International. Japan and Germany, she says, have among the highest proportions of elders in the world, but also boast steady economies.
Feds defend plan to drop gray wolf protection TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) — Federal officials offered a staunch defense Monday of their proposal to drop legal protections for the gray wolf in most of the country, as opponents rallied in the nation’s capital before the first in a series of public hearings on the plan. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service called for removing the wolf from the endangered species list for the lower 48 states in June, except for a subspecies called the Mexican wolf in the Southwest, which is struggling to survive. Ranching and hunting groups have praised the proposal, while environmentalists have said it is premature.
A final decision will be made within a year, following a scientific analysis of the agency’s proposal and three public hearings, the first of which was being held Monday in Washington. The others are scheduled for Wednesday in Sacramento, Calif., and Friday in Albuquerque, N.M., although officials said they will be postponed if the government partially shuts down because of the fight in Congress over the health care overhaul. Fish and Wildlife Service Director Dan Ashe acknowledged the fierce opposition to the wolf plan from many advocacy groups, scientists and members of Congress. They say the
predator remains in a tenuous position despite bouncing back from the last century, when trapping, shooting and poisoning encouraged by federal bounties left just a few hundred survivors in Minnesota by the time they were placed on the protected list in 1974. “There’s certainly no more polarizing issue than wolves,” Ashe said. But he said the agency’s mission is not to restore an endangered species in every place it once lived. Rather, it is to ensure that a species is established and thriving in enough places that it won’t die out. “Recovery of the wolf is one of the greatest conservation success stories
in the history of our nation ... a poster child of what we can achieve through the protections of the Endangered Species Act even for our most imperiled species,” Ashe said. More than 5,000 gray wolves roam the land, primarily in the western Great Lakes states of Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin and the northern Rockies states of Idaho, Montana and Wyoming. Minnesota officials said in July their population has dropped in the past five years by more than 700 animals — to about 2,200 — with the resumption of hunting and a decline in deer on which they prey.
Red Raiders prepared for Big 12 play after bye week
Big 12 up for grabs ahead of conference play
The fact that six teams got first-place votes in the preseason Big 12 poll was a sure sign that league would be unpredictable in 2013. Good luck trying to figure out the conference race now. Preseason favorite Oklahoma State lost on Saturday at West Virginia. Presumptive contenders TCU and Texas each have two losses, and defending league champion Kansas State lost at home to FCS powerhouse North
By EVERETT CORDER Staff Writer
After starting the season 4-0, the Red Raiders had a bye last week, giving them extra time to prepare for their first Big 12 Conference road game against Kansas. Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury said he usually has problems getting players to focus on getting better during the off week, but some of the older players stepped up and led the team this week. “It’s always a little tough getting them up to practice in a bye week,” Kingsbury said. “But I thought the seniors stepped it up, had good leadership out there and got things accomplished.” The seniors were vocal in getting the other players to realize even though the team didn’t have to prepare for a game, they still needed to focus on getting better, Kingsbury said. Tech junior wide receiver Bradley Marquez said he thought it was different than bye weeks from past seasons where a lot of the players looked at the bye week as a break from practicing. “I just think as a whole it’s maybe been different than in years past with bye weeks where guys kind of just let up and kind of take the week off basically the entire week,” he said. “We still had to focus and practice and had things to do in our bye week. That’s where the seniors stepped up and they controlled it, just kept practice as normal as possible and kept the energy up.” After Tech’s game against Texas

Dakota State. Only Oklahoma, Baylor and Texas Tech survived September unbeaten. It’d be easy to peg the Sooners as the favorites after they won at Notre Dame over the weekend, but like the Big 12 race could stretch past Thanksgiving. The league’s first full week starts Thursday when Iowa State (1-2, 0-0 Big 12) hosts the Longhorns (2-2, 1-0). It’s no surprise to see the Sooners in a first place of a league they’ve won
eight times since 2000, including a share of the title last season. But it might come as a surprise to see them as the only Big 12 team in the national title discussion. Oklahoma (4-0, 1-0 Big 12) moved up to No. 11 in this week’s poll after beating the Irish 35-21 in South Bend. The Sooners defense is sixth nationally with just 12 points allowed per game, and Blake Bell has seized the starting quarterback job with a pair of strong efforts.

Texas Tech wide receiver SaDale Foster pushes past Kansas linebacker Huldon Tharp and cornerback Dexter Linton on Nov. 10, 2012 at Jones AT&T Stadium. The Red Raiders defeated the Jayhawks 41-34 in double overtime.
State, one of the biggest things Kingsbury said his team needed to improve on was offensive production. In both the Texas State and Texas Christian games, Tech’s offense went into somewhat of a lull in different parts of the game. In order for the offense to improve, the Red Raiders need to gain more experience in the system, Kingsbury said. “Yeah, just continue to get more and more reps in our system (will help the offense improve),” he said. Over the bye week, true freshman Baker Mayfield was able to overcome the injury he sustained in the game against Texas State, Kingsbury said, and Mayfield has been named the starter for the game against the Jayhawks. Mayfield earned the job in fall camp, Kingsbury said, and the team is 4-0 with him as a starter, and that he is excited to see May-
field play healthy this weekend. “Yeah, Baker earned the starting spot with what he did in camp, and played a really good TCU defense,” Kingsbury said. “The last week he wasn’t very healthy, and I think it showed. So I’m excited to see him healthy again, and we’ll see what he can do.” The game against Kansas will be played at 11 a.m. Saturday at Memorial Stadium in Lawrence, Kan. Tech defensive lineman Kerry Hyder said he is not taking the game against the Jayhawks for granted, but is confident his team can win. “Playing in the Big 12, I always felt any team can beat anybody on any day,” Hyder said. “I don’t feel like we’ve got guaranteed wins nowhere. You’ve got to come out and play your best every week, and that’s what we’re going to do.” ➤➤email@example.com
Volleyball hosts Iowa State for conference home opener The Red Raider volleyball team returns to the court at 6 p.m. Wednesday to face off against Iowa State in United Spirit Arena. This will be the first Big 12 Conference home game for Texas Tech after losing Saturday 3-1 to Oklahoma at McCasland Field House in Norman, Okla. Tech coach Don Flora said it’s hard to play on the road with the number of quality teams filling the Big 12. “That’s the beauty of this conference,” he said. “It’s hard to play on the road.” Iowa State is coming off a 3-0
sweep against Baylor, improving the Cyclones to 7-4 overall with a 1-0 conference record. Iowa State has a 7-2 record in Big 12 opening matches under coach Christy Johnson-Lynch, according to the Iowa State athletics website. The Cyclones have multiple key players returning from last year’s team, including 2012 Big 12 Freshman of the Year, Mackenzie Bigbee, and 2012 Big 12 Libero of the Year, Kristen Hahn. Hahn and Tech’s Rachel Brummitt are the top two liberos in the Big 12. Brummitt ranks 13th nationally
in digs per set, according to NCAA volleyball stats from this week, and is on pace to break her school record of most digs in a season from last year. Flora said his players are starting to understand the importance of sticking to their plan now that the team is healthy. “They know all the pieces to the puzzle are here that will be with us for a while,” he said. “There’s a little swagger, a little confidence about how we’re going about it. We’re sticking to our plan, we’re sticking to the way we train and we’re sticking to having each other’s backs.” ➤➤firstname.lastname@example.org

Jamboree on Saturday. The Thika, Kenya, native crossed the finish line with a time of 23:55.27 in the 8,000-meter race. He won the meet by more than 30 seconds, finishing ahead of five All-Americans littered throughout the next six spots, according to the release.

beaten career at Tech. In 2012, Kithuka won each of his seven races en route to Tech’s firstever men’s individual NCAA championship.

Texas AD Dodds to retire AUSTIN (AP) — Longtime Texas athletic director DeLoss Dodds will step down in August 2014 and move into a consulting role at the nation’s wealthiest college athletic program, a person with knowledge of the decision told The Associated Press on Monday. The school is expected to make a formal announcement Tuesday, according to the person who spoke condition of anonymity because they did not want to pre-empt a statement from university officials. The Austin American-Statesman first reported Dodds’ decision. Dodds could not immediately be reached for comment. Dodds vigorously denied a report earlier this month that he was stepping down on Dec. 31. Under the retirement plan to be announced Tuesday, Dodds will remain on the job through Aug. 31, 2014 and move into a consulting role through 2015. Dodds is under contract at Texas through 2015 at $700,000 per year with a $1 million annuity if he’s employed at the end of August 2014. Dodds, 76, came to Texas from Kansas State in 1981. During his
tenure, the Texas men’s program has won 14 national championships and 107 conference titles, most notably the 2005 national football championship. Texas also modernized and expanded its stadiums and facilities and grew into a massive, moneygenerating machine that brought in $163 million last year. Dodds — who once said about Texas’ wealth, “We are the Joneses” — oversaw the school’s shift from the old Southwest Conference to the Big 12, and Texas’ 20-year, $300 million partnership with ESPN for the Longhorn Network, a 24-hour channel dedicated to Longhorns sports. The Longhorn Network, which was seen as an innovative product when first announced, also proved to be a wedge between Texas and several Big 12 schools, some of whom eventually left the league. The network struggled to gain major distribution until finally signing a deal in August with Time Warner Cable to be broadcast to Time Warner customers in Texas. Even with the financial and championship success of previous years, Dodds has been under fire
from some Texas fans upset with three sub-par seasons by the football team under coach Mack Brown and last season’s losing record in men’s basketball, the program’s first since 1997. Dodds’ decision to retire will ignite new speculation over Brown’s future. Dodds and university President Bill Powers have been among Brown’s fiercest defenders, but the Longhorns football team is 2-2 this season heading into Thursday night’s game at Iowa State. Earlier this month, a Texas regent said he and a prominent former regent spoke in January with Alabama coach Nick Saban’s agent in an attempt to lure Saban to Texas if Brown retired. And Sunday, former Texas running back and Heisman Trophy winner Earl Campbell said Brown should be replaced. Dodds’ protracted retirement would give him a chance to oversee any potential changes. Last week, Dodds told the Dallas Morning News he would still be willing to make a tough decision on an underperforming coach, but did not mention any specific names or sport.

Kansas rushed for 390 yards, and it took a halfback pass from Eric Stephens to receiver Darrin Moore in double overtime to secure the victory for Tech. Senior defensive lineman Kerry Hyder said the Red Raiders have not forgotten the dominant rushing attack the Jayhawks showcased in Lubbock a season ago. “I think it was 390 they ran for last year,” he said, “and the coaches don’t let us forget it. We’ve been thinking about it the past week, and it will not be a replay of last year.”
