Texas Tech psychology program ranks high Texas Tech’s psychology program ranked high in the journal “Training and Education in Professional Education.” According to a news release, programs were ranked by students’ GPA and test results from the Graduate Record Examination. “Texas Tech’s clinical psychology program exemplifies the high level of achievement students have upon entering the program,” said Tech President M. Duane Nellis in the release. “The faculty and staff do an excellent job of training these students to enter the workforce.” The ranking also factors in which programs had students who passed the national licensure exam and received internships. “Texas Tech has very talented students based on the credentials they come in with, but our average GPA and GRE scores are not as high as what is seen in tier-one schools,” said Lee Cohen, Department of Psychology professor and chairman, in the release. “This said, our students are exceeding expectations when compared to their peers across the country on these important outcome variables. This is a testament to the hardworking students we recruit and the excellent training they receive while here.”

Although the planet is covered by water, only 2 percent of water is drinkable. With a growing population, more people share the small amount of water available, as well as fulfilling needs for agriculture, manufacturing, power generation, cities and neighborhoods, according to the Texas Water Foundation website. The Clean Up the Environment Club is hosting Sustainability Month during November, and this week’s focus is water conservation. CUTE Club is part of the Residence Halls Association, whose issue of concern is sustainability, according to Texas Tech’s housing website. The club works alongside university administrators to increase the campus’ sustainability, which includes areas such as a general promotion of recycling in residence halls and dining facilities.

Ex-officer indicted in fatal shooting of suspect DALLAS (AP) — A North Texas grand jury indicted a former suburban Dallas police officer Monday on a manslaughter count after he fired 41 times at a fleeing unarmed suspect who died from gunshot wounds. The Dallas County grand jury indicted Patrick Tuter, 33, in the August 2012 death of Michael Vincent Allen. Tuter was working as a Garland officer when he became involved in a high-speed chase with Allen that ended in nearby Mesquite. Tuter fired on the vehicle driven by the unarmed 25-year-old Wylie resident. Tuter was fired in March after an investigation determined he violated department policies on pursuits and use of force.

Johnson: People should count blessings throughout year

Veterans, students, faculty and staff gathered Monday at Memorial Circle as the names of fallen American soldiers echoed in their ears. Texas Tech Military and Veterans Programs hosted a National Day of Remembrance Roll Call, reading the names of more than 650 American soldiers from Texas who have fallen in combat since 9/11. Before the roll call began Ryan Van Dusen, director of Tech’s Military and Veterans Programs, and Juan Munoz, senior vice president for institutional diversity equity, gave a few words. As Munoz stood before the crowd, he said he felt it was no coincidence Memorial Circle sits in the heart of Tech’s campus. “This weekend,” Munoz said, “I said to some people that we talk about Texas Tech and our motto, ‘From here, it’s possible,’ but it’s also important that we remember that it’s only possible here at Texas Tech, here in this country, because of the men and women that have worn the uniform, and the families that have beared the brunt of their sacrifices as well.” Veterans, faculty, staff, students and members of the community — some readers falling into more than one of those categories — read the names of the fallen in sections. Missy Helbert, an academic adviser at Tech, served in the Marine Corps from 1980 to 1986 and acted as a reader during the roll call.

Money plays an important role in everyday life. It’s necessary to buy the basic necessities and sometimes to splurge on those inevitable impulse purchases. However, everyone knows money doesn’t grow on trees. That’s why it’s important for students to learn how to manage their personal finances. Texas Tech has an on-campus organization called Red to Black, which is comprised of students, faculty and staff, to help students grasp a better understanding of their personal finances. “It all goes back to budgeting,” said Paulina Veloz, a graduate assistant for Red to Black. “In almost all cases when we backtrack we see that the reason they are in debt is because of lack of budgeting.” Tyler Theriault, a Red to Black financial planning coach, said the biggest issues he deals with are student loans and credit card debt. “Some students don’t know the difference between a subsidized and an unsubsidized student loan,” he said.

Health care law could be Authorities: 2 charged in party shootings liability for Democrats WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Rep. Patrick Murphy had been a cautious defender of President Barack Obama’s health care law for much of the last year, telling constituents in his swing-voting district that the far-fromperfect measure is critical to helping cover uninsured Americans. Then the new health care law made its disastrous debut. The federal health care website repeatedly crashed, blocking millions from browsing insurance plans. Questions about its security mounted. And cancellation notices hit people who buy their own plans, undercutting the president’s vow that those who liked their coverage could keep it. Now the South Florida lawmaker — one of nine Democrats representing districts Republican Mitt Romney won in 2012 — is distancing himself from the administration and heeding GOP calls to delay key parts of the health care law, illustrating the Democratic Party’s challenge as it fights to keep control of the Senate and retake the House next year. “It’s a complete embarrassment,” the Democratic freshman said recently. “There are no excuses for what happened here.” Nationwide, Democrats are nervous about the implications of defending an already unpopular law in the wake of the botched rollout,

particularly in swing-voting districts and states. Last week, 16 Senate Democrats talked with Obama about fears the problems could hamper their re-election prospects, a day after two gubernatorial elections highlighted the party’s struggles. Mirroring national polls, half of New Jersey voters and 53 percent of Virginia voters said they oppose the law. The Democratic nominees in those races won 11 percent and 14 percent of those voters, respectively. Republicans attributed Virginia nominee Ken Cuccinelli’s late surge in his failed bid to his vociferous opposition to the health care law. Hoping for political gain heading into 2014, the GOP’s top campaign committees are tying Democrats to the law’s messy launch in a series of ads targeting women, who tend to vote Democratic and often make their families’ health decisions. Murphy and other Democrats anxious about the issue face a test on Friday, when the House is scheduled to vote on a bill to extend the life of individual health insurance policies that otherwise face cancellation under the new law on Jan. 1 because they don’t meet minimum coverage standards. The legislation isn’t likely to become law, but it’s the latest GOP tactic to take advantage of the law’s rocky launch.

HOUSTON (AP) — Two suspects have been charged in connection with a shooting at a house party in suburban Houston that left two teenagers dead and injured 19 others, authorities announced Monday. Investigators said they still believe the deadly shooting started as a result of celebratory gunfire, despite court documents that seem to indicate the incident started when the suspects shot at two individuals before then firing into the crowd. Willie Young, 21, and Randy Stewart, 18, were arrested Monday morning, according to the Harris County Sheriff ’s Office. Young is charged with deadly conduct, while Stewart is charged with aggravated assault. Bail for each suspect was set at $250,000. Court records did not indicate whether Young or Stewart has an attorney. The victim killed at the scene has been identified as 17-year-old Qu’eric Richardson. The 16-yearold girl who died at a hospital was identified as Arielle Shepherd.

Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia had previously said Saturday’s shooting in Cypress, an unincorporated area about 25 miles northwest of Houston, began when someone fired a pistol in the air in celebration. In the ensuing confusion, someone else began firing into the crowd, causing people to flee into the narrow street, Garcia said. Officials said more than 100 people were at the party, which was promoted openly on several social media sites. According to probable cause affidavits for Young and Stewart, two of the people at the party say the suspects initially began firing at them. Dominic Adams said that after Stewart entered the home, Stewart “pulled out a handgun, pointed it at him and discharged the weapon.” Adams “was struck in the arm. (Adams) stated that the defendant began randomly shooting into the crowd,” according to Stewart’s probable cause affidavit. The affidavit related to Young presented a similar scenario.

Jamario Wilson, another partygoer, told investigators that he saw Young in the home’s living room when Young pulled out a handgun and began firing in his direction. Wilson said that Young also began “randomly shooting” into the crowd. It didn’t appear that Wilson was injured. Both Adams and Wilson said they knew the suspects “from the neighborhood.” Harris County Sheriff ’s Office spokesman Alan Bernstein said investigators do not believe that people were hunted down or singled out in the house. He said evidence, including bullet holes on the ceiling, supports the belief that everything began with the celebratory gunfire. “Someone in a crowd of people that is randomly being fired upon is probably going to see a weapon pointed at them randomly. ... That does not mean they believe they were singled out and it doesn’t mean we believe the shooter singled them out,” he said. Young and Stewart might face

additional charges and additional suspects might be sought, Bernstein said. In September, Stewart pleaded guilty to making a terroristic threat — a misdemeanor — after being part of a group that in December assaulted and then threatened to kill a student at Cypress Woods High School. Stewart was sentenced to five days in jail. Last month, Stewart was charged with check forgery. Young was arrested earlier this year for evading arrest but the charge was later dropped. Monday’s arrests came on the same day that school officials said security will be boosted and grief counselors provided for students at the school where both slain teens were enrolled. In a statement, Katy school district Superintendent Alton Frailey said Richardson was a junior and Shepherd was a sophomore at Morton Ranch High School. “Our sympathies go out to the families of these students whose lives were cut short by this tragedy,” Frailey said.

“I think it’s important to remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice,” she said, “and we have a list of names that every one of these people have died during Operation: Enduring Freedom or Operation: Iraqi Freedom, and I think they deserve to be remembered.” Her time in the Marines, Helbert said, made her into a more disciplined individual and better leader. She said she loved serving in the military and knew reading the names of fellow veterans who gave the ultimate sacrifice would not be an easy task. “Today, practicing,” Helbert said, “I was going through my group of names and it made me wonder who their families were, what their last moments were, you know, what happened to them.” John Vance, a junior political science major from McKinney, also served as a reader for the roll call. He made a point, however, to read the name of someone he knew personally, the same name that’s engraved on a bracelet he wears every day. Serving in the Army from 2008

La Vida to 2012, Vance was sent to fight in Afghanistan in 2009. Although he arrived home, Vance said his good friend and fellow squad member Julian Berisford did not, dying in combat in 2009. “He died in the truck that I was in,” Vance said, “with indirect fire. It’s kind of a weird date, because it was Nov. 4, obviously pretty recent, but it’s something that you’ll always remember. He was a good friend.” The feeling of seeing a good friend die in combat was surreal, Vance said, and something that no amount of training can prepare someone for. Reading the names also was more difficult than he thought it would be, he said. “You think that you can do it,” Vance said, “then you get halfway in and you get a little choked up and you have to take a deep breath. It’s good to honor everybody, and it’s definitely amazing just to see the community come out and support all the veterans.” Mitch Young served in the Army from 1988 to 1998 and was a member of Tech’s Army ROTC program in 1987. He attended the service with his wife, Margo, and his two sons. “The wall came down when I was in Germany,” Mitch Young said.

“A lot of people don’t understand the difference in the Cold War, and I was in the Cold War. I love history, so I thought that was very interesting and life changing. I didn’t serve in combat, I was all peace-time army, but I served all over the country and got to see a lot of things I wouldn’t have seen before.” Mitch Young married Margo Young during his time in the military. She said she was honored to have married someone who would dedicate his life for others. “In my family,” Margo Young said, “my dad served in Vietnam and both of my grandfathers served in World War II, so to hear people that, you know, served with them and didn’t come back, just honoring the people that gave everything, they’re the true heroes of Veterans Day and what this really means. I want my kids to know about this.” As a veteran, Mitch Young said he feels honoring those who didn’t come back is something that must always be done. “We remember the fallen,” he said, “that gave everything, gave all to the country for our freedoms, and we can’t forget that. If you forget it, then where are we going?” ➤➤cpoindexter@dailytoreador.com

Germany starts identifying Munich art found online BERLIN (AP) — Bowing to pressure from Jewish groups and art experts, the German government made public details of paintings in a recovered trove of some 1,400 pieces of art, many of which may have been stolen by the Nazis, and said it would put together a task force to speed identification. The German government said in a written statement that about 590 of the pieces could have been stolen by the Nazis. In a surprise move, it quickly featured some 25 of those works on the website www.lostart.de and said it would be regularly updated. Officials had so far released few details about the art found in the Munich apartment of 80-year-old Cornelius Gurlitt, though it was known to include pieces by Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso. The discovery resulted from an ongoing tax probe, adding to secrecy concerns. Among the paintings listed on the site were Otto Dix’s “The Woman in the Theater Box,” Otto Griebel’s “Child at the Table,” and Max Liebermann’s “Rider on the Beach.” Looted art was stolen or bought for a pittance from Jew-

ish collectors who were forced to sell under duress during the Third Reich. For the heirs of those collectors, the discovery has raised hopes of recovering art, while the slow release of information has stirred frustration. German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s spokesman said earlier Monday that the government understood the demands of Jewish groups in particular that the pieces be quickly made public. “We can well understand that especially Jewish organizations are asking many questions. They represent older people who were treated very badly,” said the spokesman, Steffen Seibert. The new task force of six experts will be put together by the German government and the state government of Bavaria, with the support of a research group on “degenerate art” at the Free University of Berlin. Such art was largely modern or abstract works that Adolf Hitler’s regime believed to be a corrupt influence on the German people. Many such works were later sold to enrich the Nazis. Some 380 art pieces could fall under the category, the government said. The task force will work in

“parallel” with the ongoing legal probe by prosecutors in Augsburg, the government said. Prosecutors had only said there was evidence that one item — a Matisse painting of a sitting woman — was stolen by the Nazis from a French bank in 1942. Also Monday, Stuttgart state police spokesman Horst Haug said that local police last week took 22 pieces of art from a home in Kornwestheim in southern Germany to a safe location “because parts of these paintings were associated with the Munich art discovery.” German media identified the owner of the paintings as Gurlitt’s brother-in-law, who reportedly was worried about the safety of his art due to the recent media frenzy. Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle, meanwhile, warned that Germany’s reputation abroad would suffer if it didn’t take a more proactive approach to publicly identifying the artworks in the Munich trove. “We should not underestimate the sensitivity of this issue around the world,” Westerwelle told the German news agency dpa. “Transparency is at the highest importance now.”

NYC shooter was dumped from band NEW YORK (AP) — A gunman who killed three Iranian indie rock musicians and injured a fourth person inside a Brooklyn apartment on Monday before killing himself was upset because he had been kicked out of another band last year, police said. Ali Akbar Mahammadi Rafie killed himself on the roof after struggling with a member of his former band, the Free Keys, police said. Investigators believe a guitar case found on an adjoining roof may have been used to carry the assault rifle used in the attack. Rafie, 29, “was upset that he wasn’t in the band anymore,” said New York Police Department spokesman John McCarthy. Investigators suspect the shooter and his former Free Keys band mates may have had an argument over money, he added. Two of Rafie’s victims were brothers and members of the Yellow Dogs, a band that came to the U.S. from Iran three years ago after appearing in a film about the underground music scene there, according to band manager Ali Salehezadeh. The third person killed was a musician but not in the Yellow Dogs band, Salehezadeh said. The person injured was an artist, he said. It wasn’t immediately clear why Rafie opened fire on members of another band, although musicians in both groups knew each other and

New York knish factory fire leads to nationwide shortage COPIAGUE, N.Y. (AP) — A fire at a factory billed as the world’s biggest maker of knishes has created nationwide shock and oy for those who can’t seem to find the Jewish treats anywhere. Kvetching has been going on at delis, diners, food carts and groceries since the 6-week-long shortage began, but lovers of the square, fried, doughy pillows of pureed potatoes may not have to go without much longer. The factory promises an end to the knish crunch by Thanksgiv-

ing, which coincides with the start of Hanukkah. “Our customers ... are calling us saying they are literally searching supermarkets and stores and they’re all asking when we’ll be back,” Stacey Ziskin Gabay, one of the owners of the 92-year-old Gabila’s Knishes, which sells about 15 million knishes a year. A fire Sept. 24 at the Gabila’s plant in Copiague, on Long Island, damaged the machinery that makes the company’s biggest seller —

“The Original Coney Island Square Knish,” which also come filled with kasha or spinach. Gabila’s, which also makes matzoh balls, blintzes and latkas, sells the knishes both online and at retail outlets around the country, with New York, Florida and California

leading the sales. “For the last month I haven’t had any knishes — my heart is broken,” said Carol Anfuso, a native New Yorker who has been without a knish to nosh since the BJ’s Wholesale store near her Atlanta home suddenly stopped stocking them.

some lived in the same building, Salehezadeh said. Rafie knew his victims but he hadn’t spoken to them in months because of a “very petty conflict,” Salehezadeh said, declining to give specifics. “There was a decision not to be around each other,” he said. “They were never that close to begin with. ... This was nothing. We thought it was all behind us.” The four victims lived in a row house in East Williamsburg, an industrial neighborhood home to mostly warehouses where artists can rent cheaper space than in trendier parts of the city. The rampage erupted shortly after midnight when the gunman climbed down from the roof to a third-floor terrace and opened fire through a window, killing 35-yearold Ali Eskandarian. The shooter then killed brothers Arash Farazmand, 28, in a third-floor bedroom and Soroush Farazmand, 27, in a second-floor bedroom while he was on a bed using his laptop computer, police said. An unidentified tenant was hit in the arm before Rafie and his former band mate from Free Keys struggled over the gun until the clip fell out, police said. Rafie put the clip back in the rifle, went back to the roof and shot himself in the head. The gun was found next to the body. Kelly said it had been

purchased in upstate New York in 2006 and police were investigating its history. Two members of the Coast Guard who were staying in a rented room in the apartment weren’t harmed. The Yellow Dogs played recent gigs in New York at indie rock venues like the Knitting Factory and Brooklyn Bowl. Originally from Tehran, they were the subject of a 2009 film, “No One Knows about Persian Cats,” which told the semifictional tale of a band that played illegal rock shows in Tehran. The band came to the United States to pursue its dream of playing rock music in an open society, Salehezadeh said. “You can’t be a rock star in Iran,” he said. “It’s against cultural law. You can’t grow there as a band.” The manager added: “They were great kids who people just loved. They looked cool and they played great music. ... They wanted to be known for their music. Now we’re not going to get to do that.” The two members who were killed were a guitarist and a drummer who had just received political asylum. The bass player and singer weren’t home at the time of the bloodshed and weren’t harmed. A friend of the brothers’ family, Golbarg Bashi, described the family as “very progressive, very open-minded.”

Opinions

People should count blessings throughout year Mollie Johnson seems it is easy to forget how lucky we are the other 335 days of the year. Therefore, I’m not entirely sure the Thanksgiving thankfulness countdown is always a useful tool. Some people who have a tendency toward this bright outward appearance throughout the entirety of November are different people come midJanuary. Their recognition of their blessings has been forgotten and the real version of them is exposed once again. People tend to inherently complain. This is the real ver-

sion of many people. The negative aspects of life tend to stand out in our minds more than the positive because the negative is something to be feared and worried about. Many times, talking is necessary to release the burden from one’s chest, so after the holidays, when the regular flow of life returns, people ease back into the stuck position of relentless negativity once again. If actions are not something that stay with us and become a part of us, what is their real use? Why go to all the trouble of being thankful for something

every day for a month to not get anything out of it when it’s all over and just repeat it the next year? If the goal is to become a better person by remembrance and reflection of one’s life, it is not doing any good if no one is a better person when it’s all over. Thirty days out of the 365 in the year seems like a small number, furthering the fact that only being thankful for that amount of time is rather insignificant in the grand scheme of things. However, it takes even less than that — simply a mere second — for something to

The truly grateful people are the ones who take a bad situation and still find the good.

U

pon the start of November enters a season unlike any other. Yes, winter is different because it is cold and has a different outward appearance than the other seasons, but there’s something else in the hearts of people that changes during this time of year. People enter November with an aura of confidence and contemplation. For many, November is merely a countdown to Thanksgiving, in which every day they announce something new they are thankful for. It always is rewarding to come to the realization that what you have is substantial. You may appreciate having it upon contemplating what things would be like without it. This thought process provides a new perspective from which to move forward. However, it

change a person’s life entirely. Therefore, those 30 days can really count. Like anything, what comes from them will be what is put into them. Most people when counting their blessings choose things that are of great importance in anyone’s life, but are quite obvious at the same time. People will say they are thankful for their friends, their spouse or their house, and while it is great to have those things and realize you are fortunate, how much thought actually goes into it, and how much is just regurgitating the first thing that comes to mind? The truly grateful people are the ones who take a bad situation and still find the good. The person who is able to say, “I may have broken my leg, but at least I have a leg,” is a person who knows how to count their

blessings. That person may not participate in the cliché Thanksgiving countdown, but others dare not look down on them as they live their lives in a special way more than just one month a year. Next time an ideal grade is not received, instead of doing what we’re programmed to do and look for the worry, use it as a reminder that you have the privilege of receiving grades. Not everyone has the opportunity to finish school. Instead of simply grazing the tip of the iceberg — being positive for a month and then leaving it for good until the next November — use the time to contemplate and become a better, more positive person all year.

Murders cannot be prevented, are part of humanity Women wrong to judge By DANNY SCHNATHORST iowa sTaTe Daily (iowa sTaTe U.)

This column isn’t what most people want to read. If you think the world is all rainbows and butterflies, you might as well quit reading now. Otherwise, if you’d like a wake up call, continue reading. At least once a week, it seems like I hear the now-popular phrase, “What is this world coming to?” You might not want to hear this, but listen up. Newsflash, the world isn’t coming to anything. As a matter of fact, this isn’t even something new for the world. You can pretend that the world used to be perfect with no violence, but the reality is, murder and violence have been occurring as long as people have been around. We can play the numbers game for hours. I can throw out all sorts of facts about how some of the largest mass murders haven’t even happened in this decade. In the Bible, the first instance of violence occurred when Cain killed his younger brother Abel. This was the first murder that took place, according to my beliefs. The first thing we need to ask is why people kill. People kill for all sorts of reasons. You have the jealous killers who murder out of jealousy, whether that be because of adultery or some other provocation. Another type of killer is one who kills for vengeance. Some believe that such horrific acts like the Columbine

shooting and the Sandy Hook shooting were because of bullying. Some killers with blood on their mind have their eyes set on specific targets And then you have the crazies. Although so many murderers try the insanity plea, there are only a handful of them who are actually insane — that’s not to say that killing someone isn’t always insane. Once again, I can throw out all sorts of facts about how the Second Amendment is actually effective and has been proven to stop mass murderers. This column isn’t about the issue of gun control, although, for those who have read my previous columns, I’m sure they can guess my stance about the right to carry. But how can we prepare for these incidents? First off, you must get the “perfect world” picture out of your head because the fact of the matter is, the world is not perfect and never will be. You have to understand that anything can happen at any time. Attacks have happened in some of the biggest cities along with little holes in the wall, but I can guarantee you, that no one expected a shooting in little old Newtown, Conn. By all means, you can’t walk around being scared your entire life, but people need to get out of their mind that they are invincible. Second, instead of teaching us about the shootings in the classroom, why not teach kids what to do in case something like that happens

to them? I’m talking about lockdown drills, giving kids the tools they need to know about what to do in case they are attacked. Lastly, schools need to stop sugar coating everything. Definitely don’t tell third graders that there is a chance that someone is going to come into the school and kill all of them, but by the time they graduate from high school and enter the real world, they need to know that the world isn’t exactly what it is cracked up to be. In my years of high school, I had a total of three teachers that never sugar coated anything. One of them once told me that in case something ever happened, we wouldn’t just be sitting at our desks and hiding in the corner. Instead, we would be fighting for our lives. That is my idea of the perfect teacher. Possibly the thing that gets me the most is the people who decide to take their own life after going on a rampage. Not a single person goes on a rampage and then decides to end their own life; they have made that decision long before starting their horrific act. For a person to take someone’s life away from them only to take his own life shortly after is probably the worst thing that someone can do. Suicide is never the answer. Ever. End of story. It’s selfish, and it’s the coward’s way out of life. But to take someone’s life that want to live is just

selfish on so many levels. Next, the issue at hand is what we can do to stop the murderers. Here’s the answer, plain and simple: you can’t. It’s not possible. World peace will never happen, and I am sorry to spoil your dream if you think that some day it will become a thing, but it’s not possible. There will always be hate in the world, despite what you might have been told. And lastly, the question is: What should we do with the murderers that we have caught? As much as I would love to say, “Flip the switch and let them fry,” I probably shouldn’t say that in a collegiate newspaper. The alternative is to lock them up and let them rue the day they were born. I don’t know about you, but I would prefer to not waste my hard earned money paying taxes so that a murderer can sit in a jail cell. Here’s the God honest truth: Earth is a horrible place. People steal; people are killed; and people are raped. That’s the bottom line. Humanity is a disgusting concept. We steal from others who have earned what they have instead of earning it ourselves. We kill someone if they look at us the wrong way. We take advantage of others for easy pleasure. Wake up and smell the roses, people. Instead of asking yourself what happened to the world, ask yourself how you can fix the problem.

Growing acceptance of copyright infringement wrong, immoral The Internet has been around for almost 50 years now, and one thing that has remained apparent in its use is a large indifference to copyright laws. Infringement on copyright has become more than simply routine; many consider it perfectly acceptable to download or distribute copyright music, movies, books. Copyright infringement is a task made much simpler as technology has advanced, yet more and more people seem to find nothing wrong with this. It raises a

question: is copyright morally justified? The idea of copyright is to give legal control of the work to the creator. In practical terms, it allows the creator to profit from the ownership of their creation, and prevents others from undermining their ability to do so. It’s a practice that exists to solely benefit the creators, which is not wholly unreasonable. However, by diminishing the power of copyrighting, we deprive the community at large of a valuable resource. This stifles the spread of information and culture, which is meant to enrich society as a whole. Is

it right for us to say that these works, the basis for much of our culture and conversation, can be restricted? If we were to apply this concept to reality, we would find that the question is not nearly so clean-cut. If a creator does not have a right or ability to control their works, then there is little to be gained in creating them. If we are to use these materials, do we not have a moral obligation to compensate the individual whose effort brought it into existence? With that said, there is also the reality of the system to consider. Many copyright materials are controlled more by publishers and other entities than by their creators. Some have

made the case that these companies, which have sometimes embraced unsavory practices in in exploiting and protecting these materials, have not earned the right to profit from them. As such, the moral obligation to compensate the creator may not exist in this case. However, these arrangements with publishers are almost always beneficial to the creator. They receive compensation, and the ability to see their work distributed more widely than they could achieve on their own. But by circumventing the publisher’s control, we damage that mutually beneficial relationship that many creators rely upon for their livelihood.

other women’s bodies By ELIZABETH CARLSON

The Daily Collegian (Kansas sTaTe U.)

We’ve seen enough advertisements that let women know that no matter what they do, their bodies will never be good enough. A woman is forever doomed to be too heavy, too skinny, too short, too tall, too curvy, not curvy enough, too fleshy, too sculpted, etc. no matter what she does in an effort to “fix” it. We curse and blame the media for the high amounts of eating disorders young adults have, and earlier psychological problems regarding young girls’ perspectives of their bodies and themselves. Yet women fail to blame fellow women for our own corrupt attitudes about how we view other women and their bodies. If you are a woman, it is more than likely that you have had more than one day where you feel like you’re not filling out your clothes enough, or that you’re filling them out a little too much. On at least one of these days you have probably compared yourself to another woman to make yourself feel worse, or in an effort to feel better. In this comparison, in order to make yourself feel better, you probably remarked to yourself silently or audibly how flat her chest is, how she has no curves and looks like a little boy, and how she looks like she needs a cheeseburger. Or you thought about how she has too much junk in the trunk to wear those jeans, how her shirt isn’t doing her chunky arms any favors, and how some core workouts would do her good. This is what I call fat-shaming and skinny-shaming: shaming or devaluing the features of another woman’s body, regardless of what they are, in order to feel a sense of relief about your own. And I will be the first to confess that I have been guilty of both on more than one occasion. I have heard women who think they are too heavy fat-shame another woman in order to feel thinner, and skinny-shame in order to feel more secure about the weight they carry. I have also heard women who desire more weight on them skinny-shame another woman to make themselves Copyright © 2013 Texas Tech University Student Media/The Daily Toreador.

feel like they are thicker, and fatshame in order to feel better about being a smaller size. Two things ladies: shaming another woman’s features will not change the way you look, nor does it do our gender any justice! So stop comparing yourself to other women, and stop comparing women to other women. Social media sites, such as Facebook, are a breeding ground for pages and bulletins that perpetuate these negative attitudes about our bodies and the way others look. Upon typing in “curvy” to the search bar the first page I saw was titled “Curvy Girls Rule, Only A Dog Wants A Bone.” When I proceeded to type in “skinny” a page popped up whose disclaimer reads “This page is dedicated to skinny women. Don’t hate cuz I’m thin. I take care of myself.” Both of these are examples of bad attitudes regarding a woman’s body, because both imply that a woman must fit into a certain description of physical appearance to be worth any sort of value. This also brings up the problem of their being only two types of bodies: skinny and curvy. Contrary to popular belief, there are many shapes and proportions to women’s bodies, and none of them are “wrong.” A woman who isn’t curvy or doesn’t carry much fat is no less a women than the one who does. And a woman who is curvy and carries more fat isn’t less capable of looking awesome or being just as healthy than a woman who doesn’t. Women who are skinny or large and everything in between are still women and aren’t worth any more or less than the other. Our bodies are already objectified enough as it is. When you compare yourself to another woman in order to shame her or yourself, it is no different than reducing her and your value as a human being down to physical appearance. Is physical appearance an important thing? It is if you want it to be, and there is nothing wrong with wanting to feel good about how you look. However, it is not the most important thing. Your value comes from the person that you are, not the body you are wearing. Toreador, Box 43081 Texas Tech University, Lubbock, Texas 79409. Letters The Daily Toreador welcomes letters from readers.

Defense struggles with run game in loss By EVERETT CORDER Staff Writer

Since being 7-0 and ranked No. 10 in the nation, Texas Tech has lost its last three games, falling out of the top 25 completely. In those three losses, the Red Raiders gave up an average of 283 rushing yards, with the high coming Saturday against Kansas State. Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury said he and the defensive staff are trying to look at all the different parts and figure out how to fix the problems the defense has. “We’re looking at all angles,” he said. “Personnel is one thing we’ve hit on, and schematically just have to get better. There is

no easy answer. We’ve tried to rectify the last three weeks and haven’t had an answer. So we’ll try to figure it out this week.” The big runs started early for the Wildcats, breaking off a 63yard touchdown run on their second offensive play of the game. The defensive players are trying to do too much by themselves, senior defensive lineman Kerry Hyder said, and that’s when teams are able to get a big run on them. “ Ye a h , w e ’ r e n o t l e t t i n g the plays come to us,” Hyder said. “It’s hurting when they’re popping gaps and able to gash us for a run. If everybody can focus their job and play their technique, everything will

come together.” The second half started out better for the Tech defense, stopping Kansas State on its first two drives. Hyder said the defense played better after halftime, but it already gave up so many points it still wasn’t able to come back. “I feel like we did a better job in the second half, but the first half we let them get too many points on us,” Hyder said. “We definitely didn’t do a great job stopping the run. We understand if we play better, we can get off this losing streak.” The Red Raider offense wasn’t able to keep up with the points the Wildcats scored, even though it held the ball for more

time during the game. Junior tight end Jace Amaro said the offense has started slow in each of the past three games and it put the defense in tough situations all year. “We have put them in bad positions this whole year,” Amaro said. “They’ve really bailed us out a lot this season, and the offense hasn’t done their job lately. In the past three games we’ve started so slow, and I feel like when we get behind, we really try to make a comeback and use everything we’ve got. I think it’s just too little too late right there.” Part of the problem for the Tech team is the injuries sev-

eral key players sustained. The defense was without senior defensive lineman Dartwan Bush, and senior linebacker Terrance Bullitt didn’t start and played with a cast on. Amaro said it’s hard transitioning from high school football to the college game and he doesn’t think he would play any better if he was one of the true freshmen who were thrown in there. “I just think that we have some bad luck with injuries,” Amaro said. “We’re missing almost four guys and four starters on defense. We’re throwing true freshmen out there that have never played a college game in their life. It’s hard to translate

Texas Tech men’s basketball improves to 2-0 By REX ROSE Staff Writer

The Texas Tech basketball team beat Northern Arizona 8868 Monday night in the United Spirit Arena. The Red Raiders moved to 2-0 for the third consecutive year and the fifth time in the last six seasons, according to a news release. Tech led 42-35 at halftime behind an impressive 17 points from junior point guard Robert Turner. Turner went 5-6 from threepoint land in the first half and finished the game shooting 8-11 from the field, leading all scorers with 21 points. Tech coach Tubby Smith said Turner played better than he did in their opening game and commends his point guard for always playing hard. “Rob Turner was on fire,” he said. “He took care of the basketball, played solid defense and had a good night. He was a lot more under control tonight than he was the other night. He’s learning everyday in practice. I just love his motor.” After going 0-3 from behind the arch in Tech’s first game, Turner made his first five against NAU and said he knew his shot was on after making the first. “Once you hit the first one, you know the second one is going up,” he said. “Once that first one dropped, it felt good. It’s repetition really. Once it came

back my way, I shot it the same way every time.” The Red Raiders led by seven at the break and started with a 12-2 run in the second half. Sophomore guard Dusty Hannahs said defense stepped up big in the second half. “We were lapsing at defense for the first part of the game,” he said. “We were trading buckets and we just kept saying let’s get stops. Once we got in that press, I feel like once we got up and down, we were playing great defense together.” Tech improved to 34-5 all time against NAU, according to the release. After finishing his Red Raider debut Friday with a 76-61 victory against Houston Baptist, Smith said he was proud of his team’s performance, but knows they still need to get better. “We did some good things tonight, but there is always room for improvement,” he said. “Northern Arizona, they came out ready to play and we expect that. We knew they were very capable of giving us a good game tonight.” Tech totaled 19 assists on the night, up seven from the 12 assists against HBU. Smith said playing unselfish basketball is a key factor in winning games this season. “We are a team that has to play that way,” he said. “If we’re going to be competitive and win, we’ve got to share the basketball and make the extra pass. We

have a very unselfish group. That’s one thing I’ve been pleased with from last spring. It was obvious to me that these guys have a real bond, they’ve been through a lot. “They lean on each other and you can tell that they enjoy playing together. That’s a great characteristic to have in your team. It’s contagious when one guy is willing to pass the ball, then everyone else does. I thought that’s how we took the lead. We started making the extra pass, finding the open man and we made those open shots.” The Red Raiders had four players finish with double-digit points: Hannahs, Turner, Jordan Tolbert and Jaye Crockett. Smith said he is impressed with his team being able to score in a variety of ways. “We want to be a versatile team,” he said. “I think we have a lot of depth and everybody has a role to play on the team. We have some very competitive practices and it’s showing on the court.” Tech will be back on the court at 8 p.m. Thursday as they travel to face the Alabama Crimson Tide in Tuscaloosa, Ala. Smith said with a smile that he already has started thinking about the upcoming game. “We’ll focus on them tonight,” he said. “I’m sure I’ve got some edit tapes somewhere waiting for me to watch.” ➤➤rrose@dailytoreador.com

Hield leds Oklahoma to 95-82 win over North Texas NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — Oklahoma’s Buddy Hield scored a career-high 23 points and four other Sooners finished in double figures to help Oklahoma beat North Texas 95-82 Monday. After scoring a career-high 19 points in an 82-73 seasonopening win against Alabama on Friday, the sophomore Hield again led the Sooners (2-0) in 29 minutes of work. Tyler Neal added 12 points while Je’Lon Hornbeak, Ryan Spangler and Cameron Clark each had 11 for the Big 12 Conference Sooners. Alzee Williams led the Mean Green (1-1) with 24 points. After trailing the first 2:27, Oklahoma used an 8-0 run to take a 12-8 lead. Hield keyed a 9-0 run later in the half with a driving basket and then a threepointer in transition to give the Sooners a 14-point lead - their largest of the game. The Sooners shot 53 percent from the floor, never trailing after the 15:41 mark to win their 21st consecutive home opener. Oklahoma led 48-38 at the half after shooting 53 percent and converting six of 12 threepoint shots. Conference USA’s North Texas out-rebounded the Sooners 23-19 in the first half but turned the ball over seven times, leading to 13 Oklahoma points.

from high school to being out there and trying to make plays on defense.” The defense will have a tough task in the coming week, facing the No. 1 scoring offense in the nation: Baylor. The Bears average 61 points per game, according to the NCAA website. Hyder said the key to the game will be good tackling and everybody flying to wherever the ball is. “Just practice with more urgency and getting to the ball,” Hyder said. “So the key this week is to be gang tackling and definitely getting a lot of hats to the ball. If we can do that, hopefully we can slow down this offense.”

Tech soccer earns spot in NCAA tournament By DAWIT HAILE Staff Writer

Because of technical difficulties, Texas Tech was unable to experience its announcement into the NCAA Division I women’s soccer tournament in real time, but it was sweet nonetheless. A final bracket was pulled up on a projector and showed that Tech was scheduled to host a match against Minnesota at the John Walker Soccer Complex. Sophomore forward Janine Beckie said she knew Tech would find a place in the bracket somewhere and found comfort in the security. However, she had no idea where on the bracket Tech would call home, Beckie said. “I could not be more happy with where we are, with the team we are playing,” Beckie said. “We’re at home in front of our own fans.” Unlike Beckie, senior goalkeeper Victoria Esson said she was not sure Tech would earn

a spot in the tournament even with its record. The anticipation made her visibly choked up, Esson said. She is just relieved Tech secured a position in the tournament. Before the announcement, the players filtered into the complex to see the selection show. The players entered the facility with ample energy. Several were playing with associate coach Todd Shulenberger’s children. Others were talking and joking around. But, once the selection show began, everyone was quiet. Tech saw No. 1 Virginia obtain a No. 1 seed in the tournament with its 20-1-0 record and a number of other teams have their names announced. As more teams were called, the Internet connection increasingly worsened. There was a point when the telecast was not buffering and froze. Then the connection returned and a couple team names popped up. Excitement bubbled through-

out the room when the word “Texas” was seen. However, Tech quickly settled down because following “Texas” was “A&M.” The connection cut out again after the false alarm. Tech attempted to solve the problem before its name was possibly called, but it was no use. Tech, with its 17-2-2 record, was announced in the bracket right below the Texas A&M and Utah matchup. The news slowly channeled around the room as players and coaches spoke between one another, and the enthusiasm returned with an eruption. Tech coach Tom Stone said this reaction was drastically different from the attitude after Tech’s loss to Oklahoma State during the semifinals of the Big 12 Conference tournament. “I don’t think we were a very enjoyable group to be around for 24 hours following our loss,” he said, “and I think that says a lot for who our girls are.” The loss to Oklahoma State may not have been fun to ex-

perience, but it prepared Tech for the level it needs to perform well in the tournament, Stone said. Otherwise, if Tech does not

reach that level, it will have to chase every opponent it faces to pull out victories. Tech begins its NCAA tour-

Dolphins lead Bucs 19-15 after 3rd quarter Derrick Rose departs Chicago Bulls’ TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Ryan Tannehill threw two touchdown passes to Rishard Matthews and the Miami Dolphins rallied to take a 19-15 lead over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after three quarters on Monday night. After Miami got good field position at the Tampa Bay 41 late in the third following Michael Koenen’s 21-yard punt, Tannehill hooked up with Matthews on a 19-yard score for a 16-15 lead. A 2-point conversion try failed. A nice punt return by Marcus Thigpen setup Miami at the Bucs 29, which resulted in a 40-yard field goal by Caleb Sturgis midway through the third that got the Dolphins within 15-10. Sturgis connected for a 30yard field goal in the final minute

of the third after Jimmy Wilson’s interception that made it 19-15. Miami cut its deficit to 15-7 with 28 seconds left in the first half when Tannehill completed a nine-play, 90-yard drive with a touchdown pass to Matthews. The Dolphins have been the talk of the NFL, with the league investigating accusations that second-year pro Jonathan Martin left the team because he was being harassed or bullied by fellow offensive lineman Richie Incognito, and perhaps by other players. Mike Glennon threw a touchdown pass to help the Buccaneers take a 15-7 halftime lead. The Buccaneers took the opening kick and put together an impressive nine-play, 76-yard

drive for a 7-0 lead that ended when Glennon threw a 1-yard TD pass to tackle Donald Penn, who lined up as an eligible receiver. Tampa Bay, looking for its first win this season, went ahead 10-0 when Rian Lindell made a 24-yard field goal on its second first-quarter possession. Miami running back Daniel Thomas was tackled in the end zone by Lavonte David for a safety and Lindell added a 35-yard field goal to extend the Tampa Bay advantage to 15-0 early into the second quarter. The Buccaneers were poised to add to their lead when Eric Page returned a punt 52 yards later in the second to the Miami 40, but the Dolphins’ defense stiffened and forced a Tampa Bay punt.

victory with hamstring injury CHICAGO (AP) — Derrick Rose had 16 points before leaving in the fourth quarter with a right hamstring injury, and the Chicago Bulls pulled away from the Cleveland Cavaliers for a 96-81 victory on Monday night. Rose grimaced after he drove down the lane for a twisting layup with 3:39 left. He remained in the game for a short time before he was pulled for Kirk Hinrich, and a trainer then attended to the 2011 NBA MVP at the end of the bench. Coach Tom Thibodeau said it looks like Rose has a “minor” hamstring injury. He said Rose will be re-evaluated

on Tuesday. Kyrie Irving had 16 points for Cleveland, but was 5 for 19 from the field in his first game against Rose. The Cavaliers committed 20 turnovers, leading to 29 points for the Bulls. THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information. AP’s earlier story is below. Derrick Rose had 16 points before leaving in the fourth quarter with an apparent injury, and the Chicago Bulls pulled away from the Cleveland Cavaliers for a 96-81 victory on Monday night. Rose grimaced after he drove down the lane for a twisting layup with 3:39 left. He remained in the game for a short time before he was pulled for Kirk Hinrich, and a trainer then attended to the 2011 NBA MVP at the end of the bench. Carlos Boozer scored 17 points and reserve Mike Dunleavy Jr. added a season-high 16 for Chicago, which went 24 for 26 at the free-throw line. Luol Deng finished with 12 points. Kyrie Irving had 16 points for Cleveland, but was 5 for 19 from the field in his first game against

Rose. The Cavaliers committed 20 turnovers, leading to 29 points for the Bulls. Chicago opened a 13-point lead on Boozer’s fadeaway jumper with 8:08 left in the third, but Cleveland slowly whittled away at the advantage. Irving made a jumper for his first field goal and Tyler Zeller had a rebound basket in his first action of the game, trimming the Bulls’ lead to 64-60 entering the final period. It was a one-point game early in the fourth before the Bulls started to take control. Dunleavy had seven points during a 9-1 run that made it 87-76 with 2:10 remaining. Dunleavy then had a steal and a pass ahead to Deng for a fast-break dunk that extended the lead to 91-77 lead with 1:07 left. Cavaliers center Andrew Bynum had 11 points and six rebounds in his first start since April 22, 2012, for the Lakers against Oklahoma City. Anderson Varejao was in the lineup about a halfhour before the game, but it was Bynum on the floor for the tip-off. Bynum missed all of last season with Philadelphia due to surgery on both knees and signed with Cleveland in July. The 7-footer played 21 minutes in his longest stint on the court since joining the Cavs. Rose was selected No. 1 overall in the 2008 draft and won the NBA Rookie of the Year award. Irving pulled off the same feat in 2012, but the dynamic point guards had never played against each other in the pros. Rose missed all of last season following left knee surgery, and Irving also has dealt with some injuries. Irving’s 39 points in a 127-125 double-overtime victory against Philadelphia on Saturday night only increased the hype for his first matchup with Rose, but their initial meeting was pretty much a dud, at least as far the individual duel was concerned. Irving was scoreless until he made two free throws with 1:36 left in the first half and missed his first six shots. Rose also had a slow start, going 3 for 9 in the first half for six points. At least Irving took care of the ball. Cleveland committed 12 turnovers in an ugly first half, leading to 17 points for Chicago. Waiters had four of the miscues, helping the Bulls to a 45-36 lead at the break. NOTES: Chicago won three of four games against Cleveland last season. The Bulls have won the season series against the Cavs for three straight years. ... Duke plays Kansas on Tuesday night at the United Center, so Blue Devils coach Mike Krzyzewski brought his team to the game. Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau also worked with Krzyzewski with USA Basketball. “He’s a fantastic leader. Just terrific,” Thibodeau said. “To achieve the way he’s achieved throughout his career, that’s the mark of greatness.”
