Fulbright Scholarship awarded to Tech faculty
Serving the Texas Tech University community since 1925
US Rep. Mike Conaway visits Tech campus
FOOTBALL | Week 11
Ten Texas Tech faculty members were awarded Fulbright Scholarships, which is among the most out of universities across the country. Ohio State University and the University of Illinois also were awarded 10 scholarships, according to a news release. According to the Fulbright Scholar Program website, the scholarship awards faculty members with grants for lectures and research in a wide variety of fields. “The Texas Tech faculty selected as Fulbright Scholars exemplify the work we do here every day as a national research university,” Tech President M. Duane Nellis said in the release. “These awards reflect this commitment to academic excellence through scholarly research activities. We are proud of the work our faculty has accomplished and look forward to what they can achieve as they travel the world.” Ten is the highest number of grants Tech has ever received, according to the release. “I’ve always said that we have the best faculty in the country and this confirms my thoughts,” Chancellor Kent Hance said in the release. “I am so proud of our outstanding faculty.”

U.S. Rep. Mike Conaway visited Texas Tech and toured the Food Safety Lab with Tech officials Friday in the Experimental Sciences building. The Food Safety Lab is dedicated to research and houses only research activities, according to the Tech website. “It was very impressive,” Conaway said. “Their research that is going on there is high-end research. It’s a two-edged sword in a sense that we train new food safety specialists and scientists to work in that arena, but they’re doing applied research as they’re going on to help with real-world problems, so it’s a great use of resources from the state’s standpoint.” Conaway, a republican, represents the 11th congressional district of Texas, according to his website. Major cities in the district include Midland, Odessa and San Angelo.

Texas Tech (7-3, 4-3) tried to halt its two-game losing streak Saturday, but Kansas State (5-4, 3-3) increased the streak to three by cruising to a 49-26 victory. Tech had no solution for Kansas State’s rushing attack, featuring the three-headed monster of senior running back John Hubert, junior transfer quarterback Jake Waters and sophomore quarterback Daniel Sams.

State’s bread and butter. The Wildcats’ execution was what made the rushing attack so effective, Kingsbury said. “(The Wildcats) had a good plan, they had good athletes,” Kingsbury said, “but, yeah, it wasn’t like it was a surprise what they were going to do. They just outplayed us.” The long day for the Red Raiders’ defense began during the Wildcats’ second offensive play. Hubert received a handoff for a 63yard touchdown. He completed the big play without having a Tech player touch him. LOSS continued on Page 6 ➤➤

After not playing at all during the last four games, true freshman quarterback Baker Mayfield led the Red Raiders onto the field once again with a little more than five minutes left in the first half of Texas Tech’s 49-26 loss against Kansas State. Mayfield was injured during the game against Kansas, and Tech’s other true freshman quarterback Davis Webb, earned the starting job with his performance next week against Iowa State. Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury said he brought in Mayfield because he thought it would help jump-start the offense. “I just thought we needed a little spark,” Kingsbury said. “Baker got in there and moved around and did some good things, but we’ll have to watch the film and evaluate where we’re at.” Although Webb and Mayfield had almost the same amount of playing time, Mayfield attempted 24 more passes, gaining 198 more yards. Mayfield also threw two interceptions and fumbled the ball once.

Burkhart Center hosts ribboncutting ceremony By JOSE SOSA Staff Writer
A ribbon-cutting ceremony was hosted at 11:30 a.m. Friday for the new Burkhart Center for Autism Education and Research building. The center is named after James and Jere Lynn Burkhart because of significant contributions they made, which made the facility possible. The Burkharts have a sentimental connection to the center because their grandson Collin has autism. During the ceremony, Jere Lynn Burkhart explained how she and her husband raised Collin at a time when not much was known about autism. “We were brought into Lubbock for this reason,” Jere Lynn Burkhart said. “We came to Texas Tech with this idea, and the administration was open and helpful.” Chancellor Kent Hance gave a brief speech about how much the Burkharts are appreciated by the Tech community. He also joked about James Burkhart’s connection with both Tech and Texas A&M University. President M. Duane Nellis talked about the facility and what it means for the university. “This truly is a special day at Texas Tech as we launch the Burkhart Center,” Nellis said. “It’s a national center that puts us on the cutting edge related to the activities related to autism research.”

Texas party ‘not rowdy’ before gunfire; 2 dead HOUSTON (AP) — A burst of gunfire at an 18-year-old girl’s birthday party Saturday night left two dead, another two critically injured and dozens hurt in a chaotic scene where people jumped from second-floor windows to escape the shooting at a suburban Houston home. More than 100 people, mostly 17- to 19-year-olds, had gathered at the home in Cypress, the Harris County Sheriff’s Office said. Partygoer Shaniqua Brown told The Associated Press it “was not rowdy at all,” and many people were dancing when they heard the shots, which police said were fired between 11:30 p.m. and midnight. Authorities say they’re seeking two gunmen. A man and woman died — one at the scene and another at a hospital. They have not been identified by name. As many as 22 were hurt, with injuries ranging from gunshot wounds to twisted ankles by those fleeing in panic. Sheriff’s spokesman Thomas Gilliland said Sunday authorities are still trying to determine the condition for many of the injured. He said deputies were confronted with “mass chaos” when
they responded to the call in this residential neighborhood about 25 miles northwest of Houston, adding that “kids were literally everywhere.” He said witnesses reported partygoers jumping from the second floor in their scramble to flee. Mariah Boulden told the Houston Chronicle it was her birthday party. She said her brother and others were patting down people as they entered her home. Two men refused to be searched and walked away, she told the newspaper, then apparently hopped a neighbor’s fence and entered through a back gate. “They wasn’t supposed to be here whoever they was,” Boulden said. Brown said word about the party was spread through Instagram, a photo-sharing app and website. She said she first heard gunshots in the house and they continued outside as people ran into the streets seeking cover. Pools of blood were visible outside the two-story brick home Sunday, and the garage door was bent after people had pushed it upward while trying to escape. Karen Briones was visiting relatives in the neighborhood.
Pakistani private schools prohibit Malala’s book
ISLAMABAD (AP) — Pakistani education officials said Sunday that they have banned teenage activist Malala Yousafzai’s book from private schools across the country, claiming it doesn’t show enough respect for Islam and calling her a tool of the West. Malala attracted global attention last year when the Taliban shot her in the head in northwest Pakistan for criticizing the group’s interpretation of Islam, which limits girls’ access to education. Her profile has risen steadily since then, and she released a memoir in October, “I Am Malala,” that was co-written with British journalist Christina Lamb. While Malala has become a hero to many across the world for opposing the Taliban and standing up for girls’ education, conspiracy theories have flourished in Pakistan that her shooting was staged to create a hero for the West to embrace. Adeeb Javedani, president of the All Pakistan Private Schools Management Association, said his group banned Malala’s book from the libraries of its 40,000 affiliated schools
and called on the government to bar it from school curriculums. “Everything about Malala is now becoming clear,” Javedani said. “To me, she is representing the West, not us.” Kashif Mirza, the chairman of the All Pakistan Private Schools Federation, said his group also has banned Malala’s book in its affiliated schools. Malala “was a role model for children, but this book has made her controversial,” Mirza said. “Through this book, she became a tool in the hands of the Western powers.” He said the book did not show enough respect for Islam because it mentioned Prophet Muhammad’s name without using the abbreviation PUH — “peace be upon him” — as is customary in many parts of the Muslim world. He also said it spoke favorably of author Salman Rushdie, who angered many Muslims with his book “The Satanic Verses,” and Ahmadis, members of a minority sect that have been declared non-Muslims under Pakistani law.

Gay Maine congressman says coming out has been good, nothing will change PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — When the intensely private Rep. Mike Michaud laid bare his private life and announced he’s gay, one openly gay congressman joked that the Maine Democrat had never registered on his “gaydar.” As he prepares to return to Capitol Hill this week as the seventh openly gay member of the U.S. House, Michaud said the decision to come out last week was a positive experience that drew support from fellow congressmen and hundreds of constituents — even if it was political nastiness that prompted his announcement. “People know me as Mike. They know my issues are veteran issues, economic development, health care and jobs, and nothing is going to change,” he said.
Michaud, who’s engaged in a three-way race for governor, used an op-ed provided to two newspapers and The Associated Press to disclose he’s gay, saying he did so to address “whisper campaigns, insinuations and push-polls” that raised questions about his sexuality. He said constituents have been supportive, with many finding his honesty refreshing. Several members of Congress including Democratic Reps. Joe Kennedy of Massachusetts and David Cicilline of Rhode Island have reached out to show support, as well. Among them was Republican Rep. Jeff Miller of Florida, chairman of the Veterans Affairs Committee, who works closely with Michaud, the committee’s ranking Democrat.
parents and teachers behavior strategies. In January, the early intervention center will begin to help with young children who need services immediately. “The earlier you start the better the outcomes,” she said. More than 100 people arrived to witness the ribbon cutting for the facility that will provide autism education and research. “I’m really happy with the turnout,” James Burkhart said. The Burkhart Center used to be housed in the College of Education’s building, and new building provides 28,458 square feet of space, which will be used for both clinical and educational purposes, according to the website. Construction for the $10.6 million facility started Oct. 12, 2012, and was officially completed Oct. 31, 2013, according to the Tech Department of Facilities, Planning and Construction website. When the time arrived to cut the

Scott Ridley, dean of the College of Education, said the building represents a house Collin built and will further research. He also commended the Burkharts for their generosity and their work to make the center possible. “I promise you that we will work hard, work smart and provide a tremendous return on investment,” Ridley said. “This center will benefit all the families in West Texas and in the nation.” The new facility will offer services for individuals with autism disorders, train teachers and conduct research to help better the life of those with autism, according to the center’s website. DeAnn Lechtenberger, director of technical assistance in community outreach, said the center will offer a behavioral outreach clinic that will teach

Conaway serves as the chairman of the General Farm Commodities and Risk Management Subcommittee of the Agriculture Committee, according to the website. The farm programs are broken up into titles under the farm bill, he said. Title I is the Commodity title, which includes mostly row
crop programs, and Risk Management includes crop insurance, Conaway said. “The more that I can learn about all aspects of production agriculture the better job I’ll do representing those interests in Congress,” he said. “Texas Tech is, obviously, an integral part of most everything that has to do with cotton, as well as other crops.” On the tour, Conaway said he received a good overview of what’s happening at Tech. He had a chance to visit with Tech officials about food safety programs and received a briefing on research in cotton. The International Cotton Research Center provides com-
“Mike Michaud is my friend and colleague. He is a strong ally in advocating for veterans and his recent announcement does nothing to change that,” Miller said. Before Michaud’s announcement, there were six openly gay members of the U.S. House. Michaud’s sexual orientation was as much a surprise to at least some of them as it was to Mainers. Rep. Jared Polis, D-Colo., who is gay, tweeted in surprise after Michaud’s announcement that “My #gaydar missed it.” He also reached out to lend support. “I conveyed to him that I felt it was great that he has this load off his shoulders and I know he’ll be an even more effective servant for the people of Maine,” he said.

BOSTON (AP) — For the families of 11 murder victims, the conviction of gangster James “Whitey” Bulger brought some sense of justice after decades of frustration. But for others, the jury’s decision was yet another denial of the peace they have long sought. Even though Bulger was not convicted in the deaths of their loved ones, eight families are hoping for one last chance at closure by testifying this week at the notorious Boston gangster’s sentencing.
But Bulger’s lawyers — and two jurors who sat on the case — say those families should not be allowed to make victim impact statements because the jury acquitted Bulger in those killings. “My feelings are that 18 American citizens were put through a 10-week trial ... and now the verdict we deliberated on so dutifully is being mocked,” said Janet Uhlar, one of the jurors who sent a letter to Judge Denise Casper asking her to deny the request from prosecutors.
Back in Maine, political observers said Michaud’s announcement likely won’t have a big impact on the governor’s race. Voters here approved gay marriage a year ago. Michaud continued a regular schedule of public events after making his announcement. On Friday, the Maine Association of Police and the Professional Fire Fighters endorsed Michaud over Republican Gov. Paul LePage, the incumbent, and wealthy independent Eliot Cutler. Michaud’s sexual orientation was never mentioned. “Mike was the same person six years ago when I knew him,” said John Martell, president of the Professional Fire Fighters of Maine. “He’s the same person today. It makes no difference whatsoever.”

prehensive cotton research and education programs, which focus on all aspects of the modern cotton industry, according to the website. The center’s research focuses on genomics, genetics, production, field to fabric processing, development of high value-added bio-products from fibers and seed, marketing and international trade, according to the website. The Food Safety Lab is part of the International Center for Food Industry Excellence, according to the Tech website. Faculty members from the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources and the College of Human Sciences collaborate together at the ICFIE center.
ICFIE focuses on food safety, value-added processing, nutrition and outreach and education, according to the website. The food safety facilities include a pathogen-processing lab to evaluate the impact of interventions regarding safety and product quality. Conaway said the visit gave him a broader understanding of policies and programs created in Washington and how Tech is implementing those strategies. “Understanding that link between what we thought we were going to do with the program in DC,” he said, “and how Texas Tech is fulfilling those ideas is the most helpful piece in this.”

HvZ participants wrap up weeklong event By CALLIE POINDEXTER Staff Writer
After a week filled with green bandanas, Nerf gun casualties and humans desperately fighting to “stay alive,” Humans versus Zombies wrapped up its final mission Saturday at Texas Tech, allowing moderators and players to reflect on this semester’s game. More than 450 students participated in this semester’s HvZ, a game of moderated tag played at schools, camps, neighborhoods, military bases and conventions across the world, in which humans strive to defend themselves against a growing “zombie” population, according to the HvZ website. Elaine Bruno, a sophomore biology major from Katy, said this was her third semester participating in HvZ and second semester as one of the 13 game moderators. The game begins when a certain number of “original zombies” are set loose to seek human players, she said. “They look and act like humans,” Bruno said, “but they’re zombies underneath. They wear they green lime bandanas around their arms, just like humans do. They carry Nerf guns, all that good stuff, but they can tag humans and turn them into zombies. That’s how the population grows.” The first official game took place during the fall 2010 semester, Bruno said, and has been conducted every semester since. In the game, players are allowed to defend themselves with Nerf guns and socks as long as the
socks are clean, she said. Dan Richardson, a sophomore history major from San Antonio, has been moderating with Bruno for the last two semesters, and said the HvZ organization works with various Tech departments to make sure the weeklong event runs smoothly. “We also work very closely with Texas Tech Police Department,” Richardson said, “because this is inherently a kind of dangerous game, and there are a lot of people who try to do things they’re not allowed to do that would put other people at risk. So Texas Tech Police Department makes sure, along with us, that everybody who plays this game is safe.” Some rules associated with the game include not being able to paint Nerf guns to make them look more realistic or modify the guns in any way, Richardson said. To keep the game interesting and exciting, Richardson said the moderators work to modify and improve the game. “We, as moderators,” Richardson said, “we do change things every now and then to tweak things, to make sure that the game doesn’t go stale or get boring, so we’ll try new mechanics each semester. One of the things we tried this semester was something we called mobile check-ins.” This semester, participants were required to check in with certain members in various places, as opposed to checking in at the same place every time, Richardson said, which caused more players to be out in the open. Although this semester did
not have as many HvZ participants as some in the past, Bruno said it was not any less exciting. “I think it’s less on the number,” Bruno said, “more on the dedication of that number. Because if we have 300 players a semester, but they’re all dedicated to ‘Let’s play, let’s have fun, let’s go outside, let’s go to missions,’ it makes that semester amazing.” Moderators share a certain bond and friendship, Bruno said, that makes the game more than just a game. Bruno said she struggled to find her niche in high school, but found it in the relationships she’s made through HvZ. “I got on campus in the fall,” Bruno said, “and I saw a poster for HvZ, and I got here, and I walked in and they’re like ‘Hey we’re so excited you’re here, let’s play.’ They didn’t even ask me who I was, where I was from. It gives me and a lot of other players a safe landing place.” This year’s missions included transporting certain things, escorting people across campus and many different obstacles and challenges, Bruno said. Because all missions take place throughout Tech’s campus, Richardson said the organization had to seek approval for grounds use. “Every semester,” Richardson said, “the university becomes more and more supportive of us, and that’s something really cool to see, is the university’s really starting to get on board with what we’re doing and really enjoying us being on campus.” Justin Edwards, a sophomore
Students donate hair to help make wigs for cancer By LIANA SOLIS Staff Writer
Bits and pieces of hair were flying everywhere as girls admired their newly short, cut hair. This was the scene when the Texas Tech Profession Convention and Management Association hosted its inaugural Cuts for a Cause event from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday at Aalon Hair Salon. Talia Harmacek, a graduate business management student from Austin, is an active member of the event-based planning organization. The event was sponsored through Pantene Beautiful Lengths, Harmacek said, and all the donated hair was sent to the organization to help make wigs for cancer. “I had first came up with the idea that we should do this event this year because I donated my hair three years ago,” Harmacek said. “I wanted us to start having an annual event that our organization puts on every year, so I thought this would be a great event to do that with.” PCMA started planning and organizing the event at the beginning of the semester. Harmacek said they first had to focus on finding a hair salon and hairdressers that wanted to help them with the event. “Aalon was one of the first salons we contacted, and they were very excited about the idea,” Harmacek said. “We just had to get hairdressers who would cut hair for free and whose managers would actually allow them to cut hair at a different salon. Once we got that down, it was just advertising around campus and around town.” Phuong Huynh, a junior chemistry major from Dallas, said she heard about the event through TechAnnouce. Huynh said she wanted to donate her hair, but was originally going to wait until she went back to Dallas. “When I heard they were do-

ing a donation thing here I just decided to do it here instead,” Huynh said. “It’s a good cause that helps a lot of patients with cancer who don’t have hair, so it’s nice to give them that comfort of having real hair.” Many students and community members donating simply wanted help a good cause, but some had alternative reasons. Huynh said she lost her grandmother to cancer a few months ago, which drove her to want to donate her hair even more. “I wanted to do it for her and in her name,” Huynh said. “Things like this draw a lot of people with similar situations together and help them give helping hands to those who need it.” Fifteen students and several community members had reservations for a haircut, and there
also were walk-ins throughout the day. Jessi Hand, a sophomore mathematics major from Conroe, had no close connections to anyone in her family who had cancer. Hand said she chose to donate her hair because of the cause in general, not for anyone specific. “I had really long hair and have been wanting to donate it for a long time, but have just been too scared,” Hand said. “But I know there is someone else who could use my hair more than I could.” ➤➤firstname.lastname@example.org

mechanical engineering major from Cedar Park, participated in HvZ for the second time this semester. Although he had to juggle exams and homework during the week, Edwards said the missions were fun. “You know rule No. 1,” Edwards said, “cardio, it’s basically what it is when you’re a zombie, you’re just chasing after humans. When you’re a human, you’re worrying about zombies. It’s pretty fun, especially for the zombies.” Edwards said the moderators made the missions interesting and some of them had surprising wins. After becoming a zombie
during the second day, Edwards said he enjoyed chasing humans. “I’d say I like being a zombie because I like chasing after the people,” Edwards said, “or at least just scaring the crap out of them. Being a human, you kind of have to have a phone on you and other people to call and come and help you.” HvZ is constantly growing as an organization and group, Bruno said, and each semester features different players and storylines. Two players who met at HvZ recently married, Richardson said, and the best part about HvZ for him is seeing students who wouldn’t otherwise have
come together, form friendships and bonds. Bruno said although being a moderator is sometimes stressful, she is grateful to be a part of the organization that helped her find her niche. “Everybody starts off as a human,” Bruno said, “and you bond instantly when you see other humans, or when zombies see other zombies, you immediately gain 35 best friends that all work together. You have no idea what kind of connections you’re going to make in the game. So, it’s not only a great way to meet people, but it’s a great way to find lifelong friends.” ➤➤email@example.com
Pakistani private schools ban Malala’s book ISLAMABAD (AP) — Pakistani education officials said Sunday that they have banned teenage activist Malala Yousafzai’s book from private schools across the country, claiming it doesn’t show enough respect for Islam and calling her a tool of the West. Malala attracted global attention last year when the Taliban shot her in the head in northwest Pakistan for criticizing the group’s interpretation of Islam, which limits girls’ access to education. Her profile has risen steadily since then, and she released a memoir in October, “I Am Malala,” that was co-written with British journalist Christina Lamb.

enough respect for Islam because it mentioned Prophet Muhammad’s name without using the abbreviation PUH — “peace be upon him” — as is customary in many parts of the Muslim world. He also said it spoke favorably of author Salman Rushdie, who angered many Muslims with his book “The Satanic Verses,” and Ahmadis, members of a minority sect that have been declared nonMuslims under Pakistani law. In her reference to Rushdie, Malala said in the book that her father saw “The Satanic Verses” as “offensive to Islam but believes strongly in the freedom of speech.” “First, let’s read the book and then why not respond with our own book,” the book quoted her father as saying. Malala mentioned in the book
that Pakistan’s population of 180 million people includes more than 2 million Ahmadis, “who say they are Muslim though our government says they are not.” “Sadly those minority communities are often attacked,” the book said, referring also to Pakistan’s 2 million Christians. The conspiracy theories around Malala reflect the level of influence that right-wing Islamists sympathetic to the Taliban have in Pakistan. They also reflect the poor state of education in Pakistan, where fewer than half the country’s children ever complete a basic, primary education. Millions of children attend private school throughout the country because of the poor state of the public system.

Gleinser: Border security necessary before reform Sigler: Amnesty never works, not proper solution
I wouldn’t trust any promises from the Democrats to secure the border anyway. They promised spending cuts in exchange for tax increases, but the spending cuts never happened. They promised everyone who liked their health insurance could keep it, but that hasn’t been the case either. So any Democratic promise of border security in exchange for immigration reform is most likely a load of bull. The border needs to be secured before any immigration reform takes place. Throwing more money at it won’t work, so what will? The first thing to do would be to close the border entirely on a temporary basis until total security can be achieved. The interruption of interstate commerce won’t be a big deal because the fact that the movement of illegal immigrants and drugs into the U.S. and guns into Mexico will stop actually will be a good thing. The border fence needs to be completed along the entire length of the border. The U.S. Border Patrol needs to be expanded dramatically and given more freedom to detain suspects. Technology needs to be increased as well, with the use of unmanned drones. Ground-penetrating radar also would be useful in searching for underground tunnels used in the drug trade.
The first thing to do would be to close the border entirely on a temporary basis until total security can be achieved.
Another boost would be to bring the remainder of the troops back from the Middle East and let them guard the border here at home. The military is supposed to protect our sovereignty after all, and one of the keys to being a sovereign nation is to have borders. Then, once the border is secure, it can be reopened to legal immigration and commerce while the military and beefed-up Border Patrol keep a stranglehold on all illegal movement. Then, and only then, should the issue of illegal immigrants currently in the country be dealt with. I don’t have a problem with creating a path to citizenship, but they must be subject to the same standards as legal immigrants. They must be required to learn English and pass the U.S. citizenship test. This strategy could prove difficult for Republicans, however, as President Barack Obama has made immigration reform one of his second-term goals. As they learned during the government shutdown, the president believes it’s his way or the highway and there is no room for negotiation. Caving in to the president’s demands should not be an option this time around. The only sensible way to approach the immigration issue is to fix the source of the problem before you handle its effects. Hopefully the Republicans will strengthen their spines and hold steady on the issue. If they allow immigration reform without border security, we’ll only be having the very same debate again in the future.
n a large country such as the U.S., it is hard to keep track of the long borders with Canada and Mexico. People inevitably slip in, wanting a better life for themselves and their families, and who can blame them? But they enter the U.S. economy, something citizens have reason to have issue with, and so far Congress has not been effective in dealing with the problems of immigration. Over and over, Congress passes bills on immigration and grants amnesty to illegal immigrants, never fixing the problems about how illegals enter the national system, and nothing changes as more and more illegal immigrants enter the country. Senate Bill 744 is a heated bill in Washington. Democrats want the bill to pass and Republicans want a harsher bill about immigration. President Barack Obama is urging members of Congress to pass the bill with bipartisan effort, as this bill is important to the fabric of the country. Obama said in an article in The New York Times, “It’s good for our economy. It’s good for our national security. It’s good for our people. And we should do it this year.” Some of the bill is necessary, but some of the policies are redundant and haven’t cured any ills of the past. According to immigrationpolicy.org, a website that gives details on immigration legislation in the U.S., the bill “addresses all aspects of the immigration process from border and enforcement issues to legal immigration reforms. It makes changes to the

family- and employment-based visa categories for immigrants, provides critical due-process protections, increases the availability of nonimmigrant workers to supplement all sectors of the workforce, and provides legal status to 11 million undocumented immigrants within the United States.” Now the description at the beginning of the bill doesn’t sound like a bad idea. Due process is something that should be granted to a citizen or noncitizen in this country. There are many jobs nonimmigrants should be able to take. The bill also would call for the border fence to be built, along with adding more border patrol officers. But so far, more border security hasn’t solved the problem. There should be harsher laws making it harder for illegal immigrants to get jobs and punishing employers for hiring illegals. The bill, however, goes too far, wanting to provide legal status, or thus making 11 million illegal immigrants U.S. citizens, otherwise known as amnesty. Amnesty is nothing new in this country. It started as a policy of former-President Ronald Reagan, who signed the Immigration and Reform Control Act of 1986, which gave amnesty to some 2.7 million immigrants, according to numberusa.com, a website about immigration.
According to the website, this amnesty has happened in Congress six times since. Not to mention all the amnesty granted by presidential executive order. This is too much amnesty. This model is not sustainable. You can’t have people constantly, illegally coming into the country and then make them legal every time they pass through. There is a reason for immigration laws that require a path to citizenship the right way, by going through a process. And it’s not fair to the line of immigrants who are trying to come through the legal way. The problem all along has been how we secure our borders. Bec a u s e s o f a r, the answer for how we deal with them is to give them all amnesty. The U.S. needs to make it harder for illegals to enter the country in the first place. A fence needs to be built that will make it harder for them to come through, although that won’t be the only solution to the issue. Immigrants who receive visas should be monitored more closely. Instead of granting free amnesty, the 11 million who would receive amnesty should honor our laws and go to the back of the line and through the process to become a legal American citizen. So far amnesty and border security hasn’t worked. It’s just led to more calls for amnesty.
You can’t have people constantly, illegally coming into the country and then make them legal every time they pass through.
alls for immigration reform are picking up again in Congress as the legislative session closes in on its end. The Senate passed a comprehensive reform bill during the summer, but the House of Representatives has not followed suit. According to Fox News Latino, the Senate bill includes a 13-year path to citizenship for illegal immigrants already in the country as well as an overhaul of the legal immigration system. I say the House is correct in not passing such a bill at this time. Before any immigration reform takes place, the border between the U.S. and Mexico must absolutely be secured. Not doing so would be to misunderstand the problem entirely. If you have a leak in your boat, how do you proceed? Do you spend all your time shoveling the water out or do you plug up the leak? Passing immigration reform without first securing the border would be like shoveling out the water and neglecting the leak itself. If all we do is deal with those who are already here, we’ll be facing the same problem again a few years down the road. While the Senate bill does provide additional funding for border security, simply throwing more money at it is not going to solve the problem. Besides,
Legislators wrong to act against Employment Non-Discrimination Act Advocates for the LGBT community have had quite a bit of good news recently. The Supreme Court has allowed for federal acknowledgment of same-sex marriages, states such as New Jersey and Illinois have legalized samesex marriages, and just this past week the Employment Non-Discrimination Act has made advances. The act as it is commonly referred to, would place a federal ban on discrimination against workers because of their sexual orientation or identified gender. Along with the 55 Democrats and independents in the Senate, 10 Republican senators joined in a successful vote Thursday to move the act along to the House of Representatives. Unfortunately for those wishing to
see legally protected workplace equality, Speaker of the House John Boehner has positioned himself opposed to the bill as it is written in the Senate. A Boehner spokesman was quoted as saying: “The speaker believes this legislation will increase frivolous litigation and cost American jobs, especially small business jobs.” In all fairness, the concerns Boehner has should not be dismissed without consideration. The idea behind the belief that laws like the act increase frivolous litigation is that there will be instances where individuals of the newly protected class are fired or not hired for legitimate reasons. In some of those instances, the individual in question will sue their former or potential employer under the new law, despite the fact that they were not actually the victim of unfair discrimination.

If such cases were to go to court, the employer will face unnecessary legal fees and have to spend time making sure they are not found guilty of a crime they never committed, to say nothing of the unfortunate cases where innocent individuals may actually be found guilty. Those costs, and the costs incurred by employers who actually do discriminate based on sexual orientation or gender identity may very well force some businesses, especially small businesses, to reduce their workforce or even close altogether. What Boehner fails to realize is that despite these potential corruptions, there is still a need to protect workers from discrimination. We do not suspend similar legal protection (such as that from employment discrimination based on race or biological gender) simply because there may be a few bad apples in the bunch. Like biological gender and race,

there is a proven history of discrimination against those belonging to certain sexual orientations and those who may identify as a gender other than the one in which their employer feels they should identify. A widely reported study by Harvard University’s Andras Tilcsik found that a significantly lower proportion of resumes including membership in a gay organization received callbacks compared to similar resumes without such memberships. An argument against employee protection based upon their sexual orientation or gender identity is an argument against all employment protections, unless there can be found some distinguishing factor, other than the belated social acceptance of the LGBT community. Some claim to have found such a distinction, referencing religious beliefs that oppose homosexuality and other forms of so-called “unnatural” personal
identification. Many legislators and political activists have warned that the act would trample on the religious freedoms of employers and their businesses. While the bill excludes religious organizations, some employers who run for-profit, nonreligious businesses may still have personal reservations against certain employees. However, despite what is often said of the famous “Citizens’ United” Supreme Court case, businesses and corporations — which are the entities being regulated by the act — are not people. While they have a right to freedom of speech, this is due to their legitimate political interests. There are different ways to operate a country, and corporations (along with their profits) will be affected by our government. They do not have religious interests, though, as they are not actually people, and could not possibly have beliefs on the existence of a spiritual realm, let alone the rules Copyright © 2013 Texas Tech University Student Media/The Daily Toreador.

by which people should behave to gain eternal salvation. With two-thirds of registered voters (including over half of Republicans) in favor of the act and around 80 percent of the respondents of a recent Americans for Workplace Opportunity poll thinking such a law already exists, it is more than obvious that legislation like the Employment Non-Discrimination Act needs to be passed. Apart from the widespread national and state-by-state support, there is a better reason to support the act. In the words of our very own Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, who led the bill through committee: “Here, we are taking one more step to make the American family more inclusive.” Harkin could not be more right.

Basketball season kicks off with a win By REX ROSE Staff Writer
The Texas Tech men’s basketball team earned its first win in its opening game Friday against Houston Baptist in the United Spirit Arena. The Red Raiders defeated the Huskies 76-61 to kick off the Tubby Smith era. Junior forward Jordan Tolbert led the team, recording a double-double on his 21st birthday, with 16 points and 12 rebounds. Smith said he was pleased with To l b e r t ’s p e r fo r m a nc e and expects him to keep it up throughout the year. “Jordan was outstanding, the birthday boy was outstanding,” Smith said. “I was happy for him. If we can get that type of effort out of him and keep him out of foul trouble, he’s going to be a special player for us. I thought he set the tone right away. We got a nice lob to him and I think that kind of got his motor going. He’s always active, with 12 rebounds and 16 points, I like that. I could take that every game.” The win improved Tech to 14-1 in season openers in the
USA, including 14 straight, according to a news release. Tolbert said scoring points wasn’t on his mind to start the game because he was more focused on rebounding the ball. “My first instinct was to rebound,” he said. “I didn’t think about scoring at all, so I just thought rebound. Every time a shot went up, I went opposite inside and tried to get the rebound.” The Red Raiders dominated the Huskies inside, finishing with 50 points in the paint and holding their opponent to 24. Tolbert said it took a team effort to get the points down and credits his teammates for being effective. “We just sealed them,” he said. “We did a good job of sealing them. My teammates did a good job passing us the ball and it just worked like that.” Junior guard Robert Turner made a nice debut in scarlet and black as the only other player to reach double-digit points, finishing the game with 12 from the point guard position. Smith was pleased overall with Turner’s performance. Because Tolbert is a transfer student, Smith said he knows
it will take time for Turner to fully blossom and understand his role, but expects his point guard to put up big offensive numbers this season. “Rob has done an excellent job. I’d like to get him a few more assists, but I thought he did a good job,” he said. “A couple of times, he should have passed it when he shot it. That’s going to come with time. I think it’s just a matter of him learning his teammates, knowing who can get the ball. “He’s probably our most talented one-on-one player. Point guards today, they’re looking to score. We need him to score because he’s a good offensive player. Tonight, we needed more offensive firepower and he’s a guy that’s capable of doing that. We are working with him to understand the offensive flow.” As Tech only led by eight at halftime, the team knew it had to step up its play after intermission. Turner said the team took to heart what Smith said during the break. “We have keys to win every game and we need 35 deflections every game,” he said.
“That was his pet peeve tonight, that we didn’t have enough deflections in the first half. In order to catch up to that 35, we had to be more aggressive and get in the passing lanes a little bit to satisfy him so we wouldn’t get in trouble.” Turner referred to Tolbert as a man. “That’s what I tell him every day, just be a man down there,” he said. “I’m going to get you the ball, teammates are going to get you the ball, just do your thing. He’s a man down there, he’s a beast.” The Red Raiders face Northern Arizona at 7 p.m. today in the USA. Smith said he was glad to come away with a victory in the first game of the season and was impressed with his debut at Tech. “We are happy to get this first win and get the season underway,” he said. “Every game is different. You get butterflies every time you walk on the court in front of the crowd. It was a good turnout. I thought there was a lot of energy in the building, it just feels good. I was very pleased.”

San Antonio Spurs crush New York Knicks 120-89, win 4th straight NEW YORK (AP) — Even with his team leading the Western Conference, Gregg Popovich said Sunday morning his San Antonio Spurs were playing C+ or B- basketball, adding there was “not much” he liked about their start. The Spurs, he said, were winning because of “good fortune,” ‘’corporate knowledge,” and because
“they’re older than dirt.” Apparently Pop is as tough on his pupils as he is on those sideline reporters, though a 120-89 rout of the New York Knicks bumped up their grades. “I thought tonight we played a good, solid B+, A- game,” Popovich said. “There were some good things out there.”
Just not from the team in orange. Coach Mike Woodson said the Knicks played with no pride, even with one of the NBA’s marquee franchises making its lone visit to Madison Square Garden. Danny Green had 24 points and a career-high 10 rebounds in the Spurs’ fourth straight victory. Kawhi Leonard scored 18 points and Tony

Each drive is vital to Tech’s success. “(The Wildcats) executed every chance they had, and every time we turned over the ball to them they scored,” Ward said. “As an offensive player, we can’t (commit penalties and turnovers).” The game seemed too out-of-hand for the Red Raiders to come back, but the difficulty did not stop them from trying. At halftime, Tech discussed how “Never Quit” was on the back of the jersey and quitting was not an option when the team went out for the second half, Hyder said. “We showed no quit in us,” Hyder said. “We fought hard to the very last whistle.” As a senior, Hyder said he appreciated the fight and the “Never Quit” attitude his teammates exhibited. Beginning the second half, the fans at Jones AT&T Stadium saw something they had not seen in the game up to that point. Senior punter Mark Krause kicking the ball, and not only did he have to punt once, but twice. The Red Raiders’ defense walled off the end zone from the Wildcats for the third quarter. Mayfield and the Red Raiders’ offense tried to assist in the comeback, but every score seemed to be tempered by circumstances surrounding the points. The earlier fumble would not hinder Mayfield from running and he did just that with his 4-yard touchdown run. Those points were the first for the Red Raiders since the first quarter. However, the jubilation was soon toned down when sophomore defensive tackle Travis Britz blocked junior placekicker Ryan Bustin’s kick the point after
the touchdown. No points would come with such disappointment as the field goal on the next drive. Tech was 9 yards out from its second touchdown on consecutive drives. Down and distance would not cooperate with Tech though. The offense had to at least come away with 7 yards on third down. Those 7 yards never happened. Mayfield was stopped for no gain on third down. Kingsbury kept the offense out there on fourth down because touchdowns were needed. However, the offense was not able to use the fourth down opportunity to score a touchdown with sophomore left tackle Le’Raven Clark picking up a false-start penalty. Kingsbury had to settle for a field goal. Mayfield would throw two interceptions late in the fourth quarter with one resulting in a Kansas State touchdown. The game was clinched at the beginning of the fourth quarter though. Kingsbury opted for the onside kick so Tech had a legitimate chance of recovering the ball, but Kansas State did instead. Sams ran for 46 yards on the drive, punctuating it with a 1-yard touchdown run. The onside kick was because he thought stopping the Wildcats’ offense would prove difficult, especially with the clock ticking and a 16-point deficit, Kingsbury said. Sophomore running back DeAndre Washington was not available for the game because he was suspended for a team violation, Kingbury said. Tech will have a chance to stop the bleeding when it faces Baylor at 6 p.m. Saturday in Arlington at AT&T Stadium. ➤➤firstname.lastname@example.org
Kirk survives roller-coaster finish to win ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. (AP) — Chris Kirk survived a wild back nine Sunday to win the McGladrey Classic, thanks to one big mistake by Briny Baird that kept him winless in 365 starts on the PGA Tour. Kirk closed with a 4-under 66 for his second career win, though he received plenty of help from Baird. They were tied for the lead playing the 18th hole at Sea Island when Baird drove into a fairway bunker, the ball blow his feet. He topped a 4-iron that went about 90 yards and into a hazard. Kirk only had to make par for a one-shot win over Baird (67) and Tim Clark (62). “He was making 4 from where he was,” Baird said. “I didn’t have a really good like but it was a doable shot. My foot just slipped. It was a doable shot. It really was. I didn’t do a good job.” The victory sends Kirk to the Masters for the first time. He had been living at Sea Island for the last six years until moving back to Atlanta. He had reason to exhale when it was over. Kirk made birdies on the 11th and 12th holes to build a two-shot lead, only to find himself trailing two holes later. Baird made a long birdie putt on the 13th, and
Kirk hit into the hazard on the 14th and had to scramble for bogey. Baird looked like the winner as they walked toward the green on the par-5 15th. He had 40 feet for eagle, while Kirk pulled his approach into the water left of the green, and slammed his wedge into the turf when his chip settled 20 feet away. Baird ran his eagle attempt 4 feet by the cup and three-putted for par, while Kirk made his 20-foot par putt to stay one shot behind. Kirk caught him with a 15-foot birdie putt on the 17th, setting the stage for an 18th hole where the tournament was lost as much as it was won. It was a crushing loss for Baird, who now has six runner-up finishes since the 41-year-old first joined the PGA Tour in 1999. Baird has talked for years about how he would rather have a consistent year of top finishes and a trip to the Tour Championship than one win and no other tournaments in contention. Even this week, he spoke about golf being more about making money than winning trophies. “It’s not all about winning,” Baird said Sunday after his finish. “I’ve said that, but this hurts. This really does. This is very disappointing.”
