The two places SCSU has designated for such demonstrations are on the Atwood Mall in the grass corner across from Stewart Hall and the courtyard outside of the west entrance of Atwood. Dropping enrollment has been a concern for many students and faculty at SCSU. To address this Patrick Jacobson-Schulte, vice-president of Finance and Administration, came to talk about what this could mean for some of the student activity fee funded programs. “When we talk about a tuition freeze we, don’t have the ability to generate the revenue,” Jacobson-Schulte said. “Had we done previously to increase the tuition rate it would have put us in a similar position to that of Bemidji [State University] or

TKE continues blood drive tradition the blood drive under American Red
Emily Tushar COPY EDITOR On Tuesday and Wednesday, Tau Kappa Epsilon hosted their annual blood drive on campus. The event was held in the Atwood ballroom from 10 a.m to 4 p.m. both days, helping to carry Greek Life. Michael Hirsch, TKE member and leader of the event talked about the reason behind the blood drive. “I think it’s a way for the community to come together and give a little of their time, as well as themselves, to help people in need,” Hirsch said. “Unlike food shelters, you can’t see the impact you have on someone, but you know that what you’re donating is life saving.” Since the event was sponsored were limitations. TKE had to run

We had to turn away over ten volunteers because we were at capacity,” Hirsch said. “TKE has been doing the blood drive for many years, and it is a proud tradition. One that will continue long into the future,” Quinn and member of TKE said.

SCSU engineering navigates competition Joe Edmonds ASST. NEWS EDITOR
This month at the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers Region Four Student Leadership and programming competition. Senior computer engineering majors Anil Timilsima and Anil Shah, senior electrical engineering major Derek Worcester, and sophomore computer engineering major Mathew Vargas were the students that competed at the competition hosted by the University of Minnesota. build and write code for a micromouse robot to navigate a maze from the outside to the center.
sentatives at the conference were the only team to successfully navigate the entire maze. Other attendees to the conference included students from Illinois Institute of Technology, the University of Wisconsin, Madison, and the University of Illinois at Urbanacompete in one of two competitions. One where students would build a complex component or building the micromouse to navigate to the center of the maze. “We had two and half hours,” Timilsima said. “We started late and then we had to go to this evaluation, so in total we had around two and half hours to assemble and code.” For the maze competition, the students were given a kit to assemble, but the code the micromouse uses to navigate to the center of the maze is entirely up to each competitor. “We took only about a half hour to code everything,” Worcester said.
“We changed something quickly at the end and just put it our there.” Despite the team taking a late start they still were able to grab the win at the competition. “Out of so many teams, ours was the only one that actually made it all the way to the center,” Timilsima said. Being an electrical engineering student, Worcester specializes more in hardware while Timilsima has more experience with programming video games. Though they have passion for what they do, their schedules do not permit them to compete in many more competitions. “I work at a software company,” Timilsima said. “Between a job and school you don’t really have time for anything in your senior year.” Worcester has dabbled in building other kinds of robots. He has also assembled a machine that can control his Xbox 360 controller. Timilsima said he also plays with code during his free time as well as for a career, including writing code for several video game projects. Both engineers want to pursue “I’m impressed by someone like Steve Jobs,” Timilsima said. “That kind of person inspires me. I have a certain way I like things and I have to do it that way.” Worcester has slightly higher ambitions for his future. “I want to be Tony Stark,” he make Iron Man suits.” The Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers hosted the conference at the University of Minnesota, which falls under it’s Region Four district.

One aspect of creationism that diverges greatly from evolution is that creationists believe the world to be around 6,000 years old. He said that rather than fossils being trapped in layers of sediment over long periods of time they were caused that creationists take issue with the lack of glaciers in Alaska during the ice age and that remains of sea animals have been found on Mount Everest. Another temporal issue is that blood has been cally blood shouldn’t exist in fossils of such an advanced age. Lauer also talked about the bible and anthropology. The basic theories for both theories are that creationists believe that God made man, and evolutionists believe man evolved from other organisms over time. Lauer showed problems that others have had with Lucy, an early humanoid skeleton. He showed a clip from “In Search of Human Origins,” which said that the skeleton was altered by archeologists. He also showed other articles that said that the Nebraska Man was based on a fossilized pig tooth.

spirituality and his faith. They then began a short question and answer session with Lauer regarding creationism and evolution. One audience member asked why there are different skin colors if everyone is supposedly descended from Noah. Lauer said that it is because in different climates. Another person asked why creationists believe the world is only 6,000 years old. Lauer responded that it was due to adding up the various genealogies found in the bible. The same person also asked if creationists believe that the seven days of creation are literal days, to which Lauer said yes. Another audience member asked a question that dealt with supernovas and other elements which would have facilitated the Big Bang in evolutionary theory. Lauer responded by saying that evolutionists say the materials would have to have come from Population III stars which have not been observed as of today. When asked about intelligent design versus creationism, Lauer said that they differ because “intelligent design points to a higher creator but not said that he thinks that origin theories thinks that schools should teach facts and not beliefs; science classes should give students the tools they need to conduct science which is “observable, testable, and repeatable.”

GSRC Continued from Page 1 into this year’s conference, Shrestha and Wonjon said the coordinators and GSR committee tried to appeal to the broadest possible spectrum they could. This is a really good platform to get students interested in activism said Shrestha.
In the works for months, organizers, primarily graduate students, have been busy working on obtaining speakers and coordinating the four-day-long event. In addition, Wonjon and Shrestha said many of the professors have been really excited about the conference, even allowing students that attend an event to be counted as extra credit. “Its exciting to know people are learning so much in four days,”

Wonjon said. “The presenters are not just talking about working for these organizations. They are actually representatives, they are activists.” In addition to the conferences, the GSR booths set up in Atwood even condoms and T-shirts that helped spread the word about activism and how students and staff can all get involved.
“It’s a big session with so many opportunities,” Wonjon said. “If you gain something, at least one thing, it would be a big achievement.” The GSR committee is open to any students including both undergraduate and graduate students. For out-of-state presenters, GSR’s sponsorship partners aided in compensating them for their time and travel. Most speakers, however, were not paid for their time.

Huttner explained that Minnesota particularly has undergone more extreme changes in climate than other areas. “We are actually the fastestwarming state in winter, and the third fastest overall since the 1970s,” he said.

“That’s weather, not climate,” Huttner said. “Year to year I’d say that’s weather. It’s not proof of any climate shift.” When asked about his employer’s climate change webpage linking to only a single year of ice-out data for Minnesota lakes as evidence for a warming climate, Huttner cautioned he would need to see the page to accurately respond. “The data on ice-out are clear,” Huttner added. “The trends for Lake Minnetonka show that ice-out is starting earlier. On many Minnesota lakes it shows one to two weeks [earlier]. We’re not saying that one year is climate.” Until the time of Huttner’s talk, the MPR climate change webpage linked to ice-out data for

It’s not unusual for MPR to check and update links to get the most current information in our web content.” Attending the talk was SCSU alumnus Zach Dorholt, DFL Representative for Minnesota House District 14B, which includes most of campus. “They [public radio] invited local legislators,” Dorholt offered to explain his attendance. “They do ask for public dollars, so they want to make sure they’re doing a good job.” MPR had left fundraising forms at all table places during the talk. When asked if local leaders have a good grasp on climate change, Dorholt stated that “I don’t think it’s hard to understand. What’s harder to understand is how this issue became so divisive. What you saw here, Paul Huttner wasn’t advocating, he was talking about, here are the models, this is what they’re saying. And some of the questions these guys asked, they’re about nothing he actually talked about. This guy, he’s mad at Al Gore ... he’s in denial there’s any kind of climate change.” When asked about Al Gore’s recent comparison of climate change skeptics to racists, Dorholt responded that making comparisons like that is “counterproductive.” “Someone who’s that passionate about any issue, is going to say, ‘If you’re a Packers fan in Minnesota, you might as well get the hell out.’ Alan Srock, Assistant Professor of Meteorology at SCSU, also attended the talk.

GSRC examines issues of the environment, global warming Professor details climate change while students advocate for carbon cuts Joshua D. Levine MARQUEE EDITOR
University of Minnesota Soil, Water, and Climate Professor Mark Seeley explored Minnesota’s changing climate as part of the Global Social Responsibility Conference (GSRC) last Wednesday, while political organization 350.org’s movie on climate activism immediately followed Seeley’s talk in Atwood Theater. Outside the theater, environmental activists from SCSU solicited support for the Sierra Club, while students signed up to receive class credit for participating in the conference. A crowd of about 75 gathered to watch Seeley, also an Extension Climatologist and Minnesota Public Radio (MPR) Meteorologist and commentator, speak of recent climate shifts in Minnesota. Seeley began by showing weather extremes that had taken place history, from a 91 degrees Fahrenhow a string of bad weather placed him where he is today. “The 1976 drought was so devastating, it actually created my position at the University of Minnesota,” Seeley related. He continued to present both the natural variability of the climate, and particular examples of recent extreme events. stands as the largest monthly climate anomaly in Minnesota his-

Near Duluth, the St. Louis River set both the all-time record high and the all-time record month span last year. Seeley emphasized that his research is based on past data, not future projections. Immediately following the public radio personality’s talk, the Fight Over Climate Change”. GSRC agendas list McKibben, a journalist, as “the nation’s leading environmentalist.” He is the founder of climate advocacy organization 350.org, which is a sponsor of National Public Radio. McKibben gained wide media attention “Washington’s snowstorms, brought to you by global warming”. McKibben lists no personal website or on 350.org’s website. The global warming and climate change coverage extended Sierra Club Intern and SCSU
Environmental Science major Chelsey Permenter asked for petition signatures outside the “Do the Math” screening. “We’ve had people from the Beyond Coal and Sierra Club organizations doing pitches in classes,” Permenter said. “We picked this conference because it’s an activist conference.” Lindsey VanElzen, Social Work major and Human Relations minor, has volunteered in the past to hand out Sierra Club information on the Sherco plant, and advocates for 350.org. VanElzen explained that she’s not an expert on environmental issues. “But all these issues on war, on sexism, on racism are all intertwined,” VanElzen related. “To to be knowledgeable on all causes.” “Part of the Human Relations Program is trying to raise awareness on environmental issues so that we are knowledgeable,” continued VanElzen. “We sign petitions, get involved in these organizations, write letters to politicians and do what we feel is important, like volunteer, and look into organizations that are really important to us that are related to climate change and war, racism, sexism.” Tashiana Osborne, a fourthyear Meteorology and Hydrology double major with a Mass Communications minor, spoke on climate change in the SCSU curriculum after seeing Seeley’s presentation. “We’ve touched on [climate change], but not a lot in our classes,” Osborne said. “There is one [class] based on climate studies. It’s based on the science approach.”
Osborne explained that “climate is about the actual trends that are going on, how it’s different, and how that’s affecting us.” In responding to climate skeptics, Osborne said that, “most of the time they’re not backed up by valid evidence.” In an interview after his presentation, Professor Seeley also discussed people skeptical of climate science. When asked if students have argued with him over climate science, Seeley responded “Yes ... more often than not, the argument is settled by a piece of data. We go over the data and see what’s true.” Seeley has been to SCSU half a dozen times in 36 years by his estimation, and he recalls that most of his talks were related to weather, not climate change. He addressed how he might react with someone intentionally taking parts of his presentation out of context. “I study measurements and the interpretation of measurements,” Seeley explained. “More particularly I study the Minnesota database. That’s not to say there aren’t warts in the database. There is statistical evidence in our state database that shows a clear measure of change. My message is that the statistical message is real evidence.” “I brought up no model at my talk today,” Seeley continued. “It was all measurements.” Seeley’s fellow MPR commentator, Paul Huttner, spoke on a similar topic the previous evening.

October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month, bring home a new friend
Tiffany Krupke EDITOR-IN-CHIEF
October is Adopt-aShelter-Dog Month. It is also the month my life turned around. I brought home my new best friend and dog companion, Bella. Bella is a Chihuahua and Jack Russel Terrier mix. She was brought to the Tri-County Humane Society in October. She was in the shelter for a few days before I swept in and adopted her. I couldn’t have made a better decision. Bella came into my life at the perfect time. The month of October was one of the worst I had experienced. It took all of my energy to drag myself to class each day. I have always been a dog person. The best present I ever received was my beloved childhood dog Abby, who lived with my mom.
October was also the month that Abby passed away. When Abby died, she took a piece of my heart. I couldn’t believe I had lost my little friend. Abby was always there for me. When I was sick, she stayed by my side. When I started college and was having trouble adjusting, she was always there to greet me after a long day. I held Abby in my arms as she passed away. In the end, I was able to be there for her in some small way. I could never pay her back for all of the love and joy she brought me. After Abby passed away, I struggled quite a bit. My heart was broken. I couldn’t believe that such a wonderful companion and friend had been taken from me so suddenly. I was mad. Why was Abby taken from the world? She woke up each morning and was happy. She brought joy and love to everyone. Meanwhile, I wasn’t appreciative of my own life. I greeted each day with dread, annoyance, or indifference. I wasn’t deserving of the life I had. My anxiety and depression were dragging me down. That was when I realized a piece of my life that

was missing. I missed having a pet. When I moved to St. Cloud, I never adopted a pet. It just never seemed possible, with my schedule and living arrangement. Yet, there always seem to be a hole in my heart. I decided to give it a shot. I decided to search the Humane Society website because I knew there were dogs in need of homes. I saw Bella’s picture and fell in love with her imme-
diately. When I visited the shelter a few days later, I saw a lot of sad dogs just wanting to be loved. The Humane Society does an excellent job caring for these animals, but they are short-staffed and a cage is never a replacement for a forever-home. When I saw Bella in her cage, my heart broke. She whined at me, her eyes big and watery. She reached her paw
through the wires of the cage to touch my hand. Little did she know, she also touched my heart. I brought her home three days later. October is Adopt-aShelter-Dog month, but there are many pets in need of homes. A pet is truly an unconditional friend. Though I lost my dog, Abby, I know she would be happy to know another pet found a home. After all, she was
everyone’s best friend. The best way to honor Adopt-a-Shelter-Dog month is by adopting a shelter dog. There are thousands of dogs out there, waiting to meet you. You can also volunteer at your local shelter or make a donation. There are many ways to help. A pet is a foreverfriend. Bring home your new best friend today.

The trend of asking people to hold up signs online has grown popular.
If you copy ideas, at least admit it When that happened
Ivana Sreckovic OPINIONS EDITOR
I don’t know if you have ever heard of this, but there is new fashionable way of declaring love to your partner. Females often use this if they want to prepare a surprise for their beloved. If you are going to have your anniversary soon, I have an idea for you. Now, it’s pretty popular to ask people around the world to make a picture on different places where they will hold a paper with something written on it. ‘’I love you,” ‘’Happy anniversary’’ or even some longer quote may be shown, maybe even in two languages. Below it you should write the place where the picture is taken and then send it back to her/him. happened in country closest to mine, Serbia.
published in media. With help of around 250 people from 70 countries around the world, a girl named Tamara tried to show how much she loved her boyfriend. She did that for her fourth anniversary, and people were holding paper with the sign “Sasha, Tamara loves you,” with both languages, his and hers. Tamara was sending private messages to people through the Internet and she was posting what she needed on Facebook groups with a lot of members. Even though she didn’t expect that amount of help, especially from people she didn’t know, in the end she had more than 250 photos. That act as itself was original and creative, especially when someone like me admits that. But after publishing that, I heard of two more “cases.” Since we live near the Mississippi river, my friend got asked twice to make the same picture for two other girls. nice, but now it’s already cliche and not original. Why do people have need
to copy others? Why can they not come up with their own ideas? Why does every nice thing that happens have to be repeated a million times after that and lose its importance? Things like that really piss me off ! Especially when people don’t admit that they stole another person’s idea, so they pretend that they came up with that on their own and that they really put in the effort. If you already stole someone’s idea, at least have some decency to admit so! If you did something like that, you don’t have to brag around and post every single picture of every single person that helped you on the Internet. But probably, if something is not published on the Internet, it seems like it never happened. If I really gave you the idea of how you can surprise your “other half,” please, at least don’t pretend that it’s yours and that it’s original, that it never happened before. It’s not mine either but I don’t like copying other people’s ideas and I especially hate cliches. Thank you!

There are many unmyself over the course of my life. If I sign up for a gym membership, then I will myself sitting on the couch instead of lifting. If I buy musical production equipment, I will become a beat master equivalent to Dr. Dre. And non-starter who barely knows how to use Garage Band. If I pick up some jazz records, I will become a sophisticated music connoisstill listening to Disturbed, Slipknot, and Korn instead of “Take Five.” I tell myself I want to read novels, and then I read graphic novels. I tell myself I want to eat healthy, but I drink pop every day and
indulge in salty snacks. I tell myself I want to write for the sake of writing, but I only pick up the pen when duty calls. But you know what? The real version of me is good enough. The soft-bellied, Batman worshiping, self is way closer to the real me than all the fantasies I build up in my head. Ultimately, I’ll be the happiest if I deconstruct my fantasy self and start building on the real foundation of who I am. I think this is true of humanity as a whole, too. There are genuine hobbies I enjoy, and there are skills I’ve honed that will help me make a decent living someday. I will let those things be enough for me, and stop trying to imagine myself as being something “more” (which always ends up being a lot less than I thought it would be). That being said, branching out and trying new things is still an awesome experience to have. But instead of going all-in right out of the gates, I’m going to start taking new experiences slowly, and seeing if they resonate with me before I make a huge time or money investment.
For instance, right now my fancy is tickled at the thought of taking photographs. I’m in a photojournalism class right now, and I am really enjoying learning to shoot photos. But does taking photos really resonate with who I am? I have a point-andshoot camera at my disposal currently, and I never, ever use it. If I don’t use the basic camera, what makes me think I’ll use the $300 cambecause it’s new and novel, but how about a month after I buy it? Or three months? That’s the test I’m going to use from now on whenever I want to try something new. If I’m not using the $50 version of something, will I really end up using the $500 version of something? I always want to buy the awesome equipment right away, instead of learning the basics with something simpler. I think I crave the new stuff more than I crave the new experience sometimes, and that’s backwards. Experiences should always rank above buying the latest thing I crave.

‘The Wolf Among Us’ a videogame storybook romp Ryan Hanenburg VIDEO GAME REVIEW Telltale Games, developers of the award winning adventure game “The Walking Dead,” are taking on a new comic with their latest game “The Wolf Among Us.” The game is set in the universe of the “Fables” comic book series, which is similar to the TV series “Once Upon A Time.” The story is set in Fabletown, a section of the Bronx which is home to various fairy tale characters such as Snow White and Ichabod Crane. The unhuman residents of Fabletown are able to pass as human via magic known as “Glamour,” which disguises them as normal humans. Those who are unable to afford this magic are sent to “The Farm,” which is an area upstate that they are unable to leave. Story You play as Bigby Wolf, a.k.a The Big Bad Wolf, who serves as Fabletown’s Sheriff. His job is mostly concerned with making sure that the citizens are not making trouble for either normal humans or their fellow Fables. A murder occurs soon into the game and you must catch the killer before the killer can send Fabletown into a panic. The story provides an interesting take on the idea of fantasy characters in a modern set-
ting. The writing is realistic and the characters have real heart to them. the situation of a 3 foot toad and seeing the game feels like a murder mystery novel that out what happens next. Gameplay The gameplay elements are minimal as is the norm with point and click adventure ing Dead and they feel tense and exciting while maintaining a natural feeling. You can pick up various objects in the world and use them to try to solve the mystery, although the inventory is much smaller and less necessary than in other adventure games like Dreamfall or Monkey Island. You make choices during the course of the game that will alter the story and you must make them quickly. I ended up having to quickly weigh evidence and make my own quick deductions which may or may not pan out in future episodes. Style “The Wolf Among Us” looks like a comic book in motion. The cel shading and neon colors give the game the look of the comics that the game is based on. The
Fairy tales come alive with a dark twist in “The Wolf Among Us”.
graphics are not technically advanced, but they are well drawn and make the game look beautiful. “The Walking Dead” and this game are shining examples of what a great aesthetic can do for a game that doesn’t have a lot of graphics technology the backgrounds look like a scene from a graphic novel. “The Wolf Among Us” looks great simply because it is blatantly not trying to be “hyper-realistic.”
will be another great game from Telltale Games. If you don’t mind having minimal gameplay elements in order to create a fantastic story then you’ll love this game.

Step Brothers offers amazing dogs, wieners Nick Hayes RESTAURANT REVIEW As you enter Step Brothers Wieners & More, you are greeted by a number of things. The smell of cooked meat, a poster for “Spykids 3D” at the entrance, along with a poster of “The Kramer” over the soda machine, and the charming nature of Step Brothers hits you like a wave. The staff are polite and friendly, especially when one is trying to decide just which hot Aromatic espresso adds to the charming atmosphere at Seven Elephants Coffee.
Seven Elephants a local treasure Joshua D. Levine RESTAURANT REVIEW SCSU students have an attractive place to hang out, study, and get great joe, if they’re willing to walk The cafe, located northwest of campus at 7th Ave N. and Courthouse Square, offers plush seating, a unique atmosphere, and scrumptious food and beverage choices for the hungry Husky. Sitting opposite the Courthouse in a historic brick building, there is no free parking nearby on weekdays, but the walk or the meter fee are worth it. Better walk, as you might end up eating more dining options. The eclectic mix of food, art, furniture, history and spirit combine to make this treasure of a coffeehouse a must-stop destination for anyone in St. Cloud. The prices are fair, comparable to other far-less-interesting coffee shops, and generally slightly lower than the campus Caribou. The plush couches and wide tables inside beckon you to relax for hours, while the delicious aroma of coffee and tea wafting throughout will please any connoisseur. from earning top marks. Although the cafe comes with a strong recommendation, I must add a caveat that on every visit there was something off. If the establishment can rectify the inconsistencies, it will make an already great spot even better. The staff showed outstanding personal service at all visits. Visit number one brought a simple, steaming Americano on a Friday afternoon. The espresso was expertly poured, and the aroma indicated a high quality bean and roast. Although I drink my coffee black, I noticed a sign that the cafe was out of one type of creamer, which could annoy some customers. one employee was on duty, and many of the tables had previous patrons’ dishes and cups still out. Unbussed tables can be a major annoyance, especially if it had gotten busy. Visit number two came on a late weekday morning. I ordered an onion and mushroom sticky bun, a mint brownie, and a “Jump Start,” which consisted of your choice of coffee roast, poured over espresso shots. I was eager to sample the “Minnesota Mud” roast, but found the carafe empty. I selected an underlying espresso was fantastic. The sticky bun was phenomenal. Gooey dough
bear-hugged moist mushrooms and savory onions, with a sweet aftertaste. The mint brownie was perfect too, bursting with chocolate. A bump in the road, besides being out of one type of coffee, was that I snagged the last lid for my cup. I’m sure the next customer could have asked for a lid if need be, but the staff shouldn’t let the lid supply get so low. Comparing independent and corporate coffee is like comparing apples and bananas, but that would have never happened at a Caribou or Starbucks. line was moving along quickly as both students and professionals crowded the counter. I ordered the brownie, along with asking for chai. As they were out of soy milk, I scratched the chai, and instead requested regular coffee. Running out of non-dairy options is something that shouldn’t happen at any coffeehouse, or if it does it should be towards the day’s end, not in the middle of morning rush. So without my chai I chose Minnesota Mud, and this time it was brimming full. The coffee was
menu is a wide variety of hot dogs and sandwiches, with all kinds of toppings, from coleslaw to pulled pork. There are a number of side choices, from soup to french fries and tater tots, which also come with a variety of seasonings, from freshly ground black pepper to popcorn salt. Step Brothers offers a large number of entrees and sides to the customer, which is one of the things that helps it stand out to the customer. It is a rare thing when you will get this many options at a restaurant, which is one of the better draws of Step Brothtiple choices, from the toppings on your hot dog to the seasoning on your fries, along with a soup of the day. I tried two of their hot dogs, one that was just a plain hot dog, the other known as the “Bomb
Dog,” which was topped with barbecue sauce, and coleslaw, along with tater tots, french fries and a cup of their soup of the day were fantastic, as well as the wonderfully seasoned fries and tots, which I had topped with popcorn salt. The service was quick and very friendly, especially considering they make many of their entrees in-house. Despite the wonderful food, what really sold me on Step Brothers was the atmosphere and the feel of the restaurant. There is a whole wall of donated pictures, all of which are “Awkward Family Photos,” and they are still accepting donations. There was music playing, but not top 40 songs that you hear all over the place. I heard a lot of Beatles while I was dining, and it made the meal all the better. Stepbrothers has the promise to be one of the new, popular restaurants in the St. Cloud area. This writer cannot recommend it highly enough. The food is phenomenal, as you can get any kind of hotdog you want, along with a wide variety of other entrees, including sandwiches and wraps. The atmosphere alone is enough for anyone to enjoy their time at Step Brothers, and if you get the chance and want a delicious and affordable lunch, check it out. Rating: 10/10
another patron say that the decafe carafe was empty, however. Again, it’s the little things that can annoy customers that you have to watch out for in order to achieve excellence.

Other sandwich options include a variety of standard lunch sandwiches, plus the “Hamtastic” your choice of meat, cheese, and eggs, over a pesto bagel.

Women’s hockey season off to slow start Jeremiah Graves ASST SPORTS EDITOR
FRIDAY The SCSU women’s hockey team played host to the No. 6 ranked University of North Dakota on Friday at the Herb Brooks National Hockey Center. The weekend marked welcome home for the Huskies after their weekends at Ohio State and the University of Wisconsin. Unfortunately, the Huskies lost 1-2 in a hard-fought, blue-collar game on Friday. With the loss, the Huskies’ record falls to 0-52, 0-4-1-1 WCHA and moves UND’s all-time record against the Huskies to 22-19-5. UND struck just 48 seconds into the Michelle Karvinen, who beat an SCSU defenseman, and then goaltender Julie Friend. The assist on the play was credited to freshman Amy Menke, and the goal extended Karvinen’s point streak to 14 games.
UND went on to out-shoot the Huskies job on the penalty kill. The Huskies blocked eight shots and allowed only three to get to saves. The Huskies started the second period with 1:35 remaining on the power play, but Julia Gilbert needed only 11 seconds to even things up. After gaining possession of the face-off, Gilbert crossed through the neutral zone and invaded UND territory. Gilbert peppered a shot over the glove of UND goalie Shelby Amsley-Benzie, just inside the corner of the net. The goal by Gilbert marks her second of the season, and the assists were credited to Molli Mott for her second of the year, and
on the penalty kill, and Friend came up big for the Huskies when she needed to bail the team out. Unfortunately for Friend and SCSU, an unlucky bounce of off a defenseman crept just over the line before she could grab it with just 5:25 left in the game. The goal was credited to UND’s Karvinen for her second of the game, putting the Huskies down a goal late in the game. Ness sat in the box for a slashing penalty just 24 seconds after the goal, putting the Huskies back on the penalty kill. The cold UND power play would get even colder as SCSU killed their sixth penalty kill of the game. “The defense and the forwards tonight “It starts with blocking shots on the penalty The penalty kills didn’t come easy, picking up a monstrous 27 blocked shots and a few bruises, over the three periods. “We are trying to be a really good defensive team, we’re trying to give Julie some help

The Huskies pulled Friend with 1:22 left in the game, in hopes that the extra player effort fell short. SCSU fell 1-2, getting outshot 21-6 in the third period and 36-25 in the game. Friend earning second star of the game honors. Friend’s record drops to 0-3-2 on the season. “Any time you have Julie between the said. “She played well tonight, they just got The SCSU women’s hockey record now drops to 0-5-2, 0-4-1-1 WCHA, and the No. 6 ranked UND team moves to 5-1-1, 2-1-1-1 WCHA. Game two of the series occurs Saturday at 3:07 p.m. in the Brooks Center.
The power play goal was the third of the season for the Huskies on 36 chances, which is a .083 conversion percentage. “Our power play can be better, we’d like Giesen. “We get a little to excited and try to make a great play instead a bunch of little The special teams of both UND and SCSU were put to the test in the second period with North Dakota getting three penalties and the Huskies having two. An early goal sparked the Huskies who essentially dominated the period for the remainder of the time, out-shooting UND 14-7. SCSU also totaled eight blocked shots, and allowed only three power play shots in the period. Abby Ness served a too many men penalty 6:32 into the period and a minute later, her teammate Cari Coen joined her, serving a checking penalty. Once again the Huskies wouldn’t budge
SATURDAY Coming off a one-goal nail-biter loss Friday night, the SCSU women’s hockey team (0-6-2, 0-5-1-1 WCHA) was hoping to obtain University of North Dakota (6-1-1, 4-1-11 WCHA), but fell 6-1 at the Herb Brooks National Hockey Center. Special teams were the biggest reason why UND was able to keep the Huskies winless by getting it done on both sides scoring four goals on special teams. North Dakota was 2-for-3 on the man advantage and got two shorthanded goals. The Huskies were 1-for-5 on the power play. “We have been working on our special teams and we made some strides last night

UND senior Michelle Karvinen gave North Dakota a 1-0 lead with a shorthanded goal intercepting a pass, and had a clean break on goaltender Julie Friend making
Karvinen netted her second goal of the game this time on the power play, followed by Meghan Dufault’s shorthanded goal, North Dakota’s second of the game, and Kayla Gardner ended the four-goal period with a shot that Friend never seemed to see. “You’re not going to win many national championships or get home ice in the playoffs in September and October, so it’s part of
Friend’s shoulder. Both teams were gritty and grinding all game, but UND was able to stave off the Huskies’ chance at a comeback due to more quality scoring chances and more pucks to the net, out-shooting the Huskies 42-23. “We just tried to battle with them, and said. The second period was a period the Huskies would have liked to have, back giving up four goals as the North Dakota kicked it into on Friend.

Vikings woes continue against Giants Derek Saar STAFF COLUMN
Josh Freeman’s debut in a Minnesota Viking uniform didn’t go according to plan, to say the very least. tough pill to swallow but leave it to the now 1-5 Vikings to do so. It wasn’t just Freeman who was to blame for the Vikings’ disappointment on Monday running game, and some of that blame could be placed on the offensive line. The old cliché that football games are “won and lost in the trenches” can be held true to an extent, and the Vikings offensive line continues to lose in the trenches, week after men who started each of last season’s 17 games if you include their playoff game against Green Bay. Last season, the offensive line paved the way for Peterson’s historic season when he came up a mere eight yards short of Eric Dickerson’s single season rushing record. Also, last season they gave excellent pass protection propelling Ponder to a great run down the stretch, and in return the Vikings earned a somewhat surprising yet well-deserved playoff spot. What has happened to the offensive line? According to head coach Leslie Frazier in his post game press conference, Freeman, “had a few balls sail on him.” That was obviously put very modestly by Frazier, as Freeman was overthrowing and missing receivers all night long in the Meadowlands. The fact that the Vikings were using a limited playbook with a quarterback that had only been with the team for a week and a half isn’t an excuse for the play of Freeman, nor is the excuse
that he was rushed into the starting role. Frazier and the rest of his coaching staff had devised a game plan for Freeman to succeed in and clearly he was far from executing it. Freeman’s statistics were more horrifying than “A Nightmare on Elm Street”, completing only 20 of his 53 pass attempts for 190 yards and an interception. This resulted in Freeman having a Total QBR of 6.1 for the game, which is a statistical formula based on a 100 point scale to translate a quarterbacks overall performance, a score of 100 obviously being the best. Vikings fans won’t be seeing Freeman under center in this weeks Sunday Night Football match-up against arch-rivals, the Green Bay Packers. The Vikings will look to Ponder once again as the man to lead the offense. Freeman is suffering from a concussion and has been ruled out of action. Matt Cassel will serve as the backup. Freeman believes a hit in the third quarter of Monday’s game against the Giants may have caused the injury, but did not tell coaches or the team’s medical staff and played the remainder of the game. Ponder’s last game against the Packers was a successful one, a 37-34 home victory that clinched a playoff berth for the Vikings. In doing so, Ponder was 16-for-28 resulting in 234 yards passing, three touchdowns and most importantly no interceptions. It will take a performance very similar to that in order for the Vikings to have much of a chance against the Packers, who despite a plethora of key injuries, especially on the offensive side of the ball, are riding high coming into Sunday nights encounter at Mall of America Field. coupled with their dismal 1-5 record, one can assume that there is an inevitable feeling nationally televised prime time game in this instance against a bitter rival in the border Vikings and with an inspired effort. Anything can happen.
Exercise with your dog: a fun way to get in shape STAFF COLUMN
There’s no question that pets are good for our health. Past studies have said pet ownership can lower blood pressure and lessen symptoms of anxiety and depression. A study by Miami University in Ohio said pet owners had greater self-esteem, were verted, tended to be less fearful, and less preoccupied compared to non-owners. your immune system, cardiovascular health, and weight management. Cats might not be so inclined to take a walk (with a few exceptions) but dogs are always ready to exercise. Researchers have found that dog owners get more exercise by walking their pet than someone with a gym membership. personal trainers. Unlike friends who might skip out because of an appointment or a busy schedule, dogs never give you the excuse to take a day off. Research from the University Of Western Australia found that 7 in 10 adult dog owners got 150 minutes of exercise a week. New dog owners increased their walking by about 48 minutes per week. day. That’s only part of it. My dog, Bella, is a Jack Russell Terrier and has long legs. She loves to run and frequently brings me tennis balls to throw. When I get home from class and my dog needs to go outside, her energy pushes me out of my funk. I have also enjoyed exercising a lot more lately. Also, Bella runs faster and has more energy than I do. She is what encourages me to keep moving. She doesn’t accept any excuses, and is the ultimate personal trainer. There are a couple of tips I have picked up from my own dog walking/exercising experience. -Make sure your dog is equipped for the workout. Certain dogs handle exercise better. Greyhounds are more suited to short bursts of exercise like sprinting. Pit bulls have a longer endurance. Take your dog out for a walk to observe what kind of exercise they can handle. -Let your dog acclimate to the exercise routine. If your dog is not used to exercising, there is the possibility of injury. -Train your dog to stay to one side of you. This is an important safety tip to prevent your dog from darting in front of you. -Be sure to take regular breaks and drink plenty of water. Both you and your dog need -Try to establish a regular exercise routine to ensure success. You are more likely to stick to walking your dog if you allot time in your daily schedule. Now, this research by no means is meant to encourage getting a pet. A four-legged, wagging tailed friend is no guarantee that you will drop the pounds or suddenly enjoy exercising. A dog is a big commitment. Take your woof for a walk today.
