Improvements to campus copyright policy in progress By Rebecca Banks News Reporter

The Nov. 16 show at Bar One 41 raised funds for Texas State’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning and allied community group.

Texas State administrators are working to implement changes and improvements to the university’s copyright policy in the upcoming months to ensure future student and outside works are protected. Officials in the copyright policy working group at Alkek Library are nearing the end of a three-year process to update and consolidate the current system. Rori Sheffield, assistant director at the Educational Technology Center, said the revised policy will discuss students’ ownership of their work as copyrighted material for the first time. Any student work is automatically copyrighted, Sheffield said. “We want everyone, the entire campus community, to understand their rights as an owner and, on the other hand, how to properly use other materials created by others within the boundaries of fair use,” said Joan Heath, associate vice president of the library. Heath said the university has had multiple copyright policies in the past, but the previous ones were not updated with changes in legislation. It was difficult for students and faculty to receive information about the proper usage of copyrighted material, she said. “Students on university campuses today have grown up in a time of using technology, but I don’t know that they’ve really grown up with much education about copyright at all,” Heath said. The copyright policy working group will meet with officials on the Council of Chairs in the division of Academic Affairs in December to discuss final revisions, Heath said. The revisions will be given to the provost for approval, and Heath hopes the policy

Texas State monetizes, commercializes faculty inventions

Chris Motz | Staff Photographer Gary Beall, professor in the department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, is looking to patent a polymer used in bulletproof glass developed through research at Texas State.

By Nicole Barrios News Reporter

Texas State is continuing to expand and monetize its research efforts through the commercial-

ization of products and technology developed by faculty. Reddy Venumbaka, director of Commercialization Services, said Texas State has gained $31,243 in total revenue from the licensing

and patenting of intellectual property created through research at the university. The amount of collaboration with outside companies and private industries has also increased significantly in the past three years, Venumbaka said. Provost Eugene Bourgeois said there is no specific requirement stating the university must patent and sell its research to reach Tier One status. However, he said it helps the university meet the requirement for external research expenditures. These expenditures result from funding coming into the university from grants or contracts related to research initiatives, Bourgeois said. Since May 2010, 44 invention disclosures, 19 provisional patents and seven full patent applications were filed, Venumbaka said. Two new companies were formed, and two licensing agreements, which authorize the use of patented inventions, were signed as a result of research efforts, according to Venumbaka.

Venumbaka said more than 25 agreements have been signed to sponsor research or provide service testing since 2010. Testing agreements are contracts in which a company uses the university’s facilities to test research and pay a fee, while sponsored agreements negotiate the purchase of intellectual property, Venumbaka said. “We try to open up the opportunities to work with the industry and work together,” Venumbaka said. Information in two recent licensing agreements indicates the university will receive a percentage of royalties over time, Venumbaka said. He said the inventors of the technology, in this case university professors, will receive 50 percent of the money made from selling the product or from royalties. “Faculty members, if they make an invention that makes lots of money for the university, they’re going to benefit directly,”

said Gary Beall, professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry. “So there’s some incentive to do work that’s useful.” The other half of the profit will go toward the university, Venumbaka said. Texas State officials have not yet received money from either agreement. Bourgeois said the university’s portion of the profit may go toward covering the overhead costs of research facilities. “Broadly speaking, it does go back into the university’s resources that we push out to expand research and commercialization,” Bourgeois said. Beall said he is in the process of patenting a polymer produced for bulletproof glass. The glass has stopped a NATO rifle round shot from 10 feet away. Three patents have been issued on the technology and two more are currently being filed, Beall said.

Delays prompt extended Old Main construction

By Kristen Smith News Reporter

Students, faculty and staff are continuing to feel the effects of construction on Old Main after rain, harsh weather conditions and the discovery of unanticipated repairs pushed back the original completion date. Juan Guerra, associate vice president of Facilities, said construction on Old Main was originally scheduled to be complete by November, but is now estimated to extend through mid-December. According to the planning, space management and

real estate webpage on the Texas State website, roof repairs had been scheduled to be finished by the end of October. The replacement of windows and doors was set for completion this month, but construction is now estimated to extend through December, according to the webpage. Workers discovered additional damage to the roof, and more windows needed to be replaced than originally anticipated, Guerra said. He said the construction company, Phoenix 1 Restorations, replaced more of the deteriorated or loose sandstone lintels on the roof than

they originally planned. “The biggest impact has been the rain,” Guerra said. “They were moving along very briskly with their project and then the rain started, and we started having delays because you have to stop and wait for everything to dry out before you can put the coverings on.” The main purpose of the construction was to replace Old Main’s roof, but additional improvements were made to help with the building’s stability, Guerra said. The lightning protection system was upgraded, a sprinkler system was installed

in the attic and the majority of windows and frames and both entrance doors were replaced, he said. Kym Fox, senior lecturer in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication, said the construction is “exciting,” even though there have been complications in her classes such as lack of air conditioning and water leakage from the ceiling. However, Fox said she is largely unaffected by the dust and sound from the construction. “It doesn’t bother me,” Fox

COPYRIGHT, continued from front will be approved by next year. Sheffield said the group looked at other universities’ policies when drafting the revision. “It really is just a living, breathing kind of document right now,” Sheffield said. “It’s been presented to several different councils and committees on campus to get user feedback.” Some Faculty Senate members voiced concerns about students recording lectures and selling them online, Sheffield said. The group is currently discussing various ways to inform students of educational programs,

Heath said. According to Sheffield, copyright cases involving students are currently viewed on an individual basis. There have been incidents where students may not have been aware of the copyright policy, and some people may have intentionally plagiarized work, she said. Brad Nichols, librarian and copyright officer, said the copyright group informs students of the policy while the Honor Code Council deals with investigations and punishment of plagiarism. Revisions and additions to

the copyright policy may be introduced in English courses and through the PACE Center to educate students on the changes, Nichols said. The copyright group is looking for ways to educate the largest possible amount of undergraduate students about the policy, Nichols said. Nichols said he regularly posts updated copyright information for students and faculty on Alkek Library’s Copyright LibGuide. Nichols said he updates the library’s blogs three times a week with current cases about copyright issues involving universities,

music, film and artwork across the nation. “The copyright blog, I think, is a good tool just to show people that copyright is out there in the real world and is going on around us,” Nichols said. The copyright policy working group plans to continue inform-

ing students and faculty about how to properly use the policies, Heath said. “Bit by bit it is raising people’s awareness and knowledge that there is such a thing as copyright—that it is law,” Heath said.

RESEARCH, continued from front There are negotiations underway with an international company to buy the patent, Beall said. The company was not named, and the final deal is still unknown, but will hopefully result in millions of dollars, he said. Beall said he and some students were originally working with the military to develop windows for heli-

copters made of the bulletproof glass polymer. The military had trouble finding a company to manufacture the glass, but may be close to finding one willing to develop it, Beall said. Once a faculty member has an invention, the intellectual property committee in the Office of Commercialization and Industrial

OLD MAIN, continued from front said. “I’m used to working in newsrooms. I believe that if you’re a journalist worth your salt, you should be able to work in distraction.” Tom Grimes, professor of Journalism and Mass Communication, said he is irritated by the construction. He said it is difficult to finish work in his office with construction workers “peering in.” “The problem is, and I don’t think they understand this, they’ll be working on a window as they were this week, and there is someone behind them, and they’ll start yelling at the person behind them,” Grimes said. “They don’t

get it that they need to be quiet.” Grimes said in addition to dust and the noise, large centipedes have fallen out of the attic area when construction workers walk on the roof. “I guess the only good part is that this terribly run-down building will be less run-down once these people leave,” Grimes said. “You go to other great universities in the United States and they have these hallmark buildings—these centerpiece buildings that are immaculately kept up. This place was just running down, so this will look nice once it’s done.”

Relations will send the product out for market analysis to determine the value and whether it is patentable, Venumbaka said. The committee will then decide if they want to file a patent or release it to the inventor, Venumbaka said.

Persevere through end of semester


s winter break nears, students should work hard to resist the urge to feel burned out on classwork, and instead push through to finish the semester strong. For many students, the urge to throw in the towel on studying is stronger than ever in the weeks leading up to finals. Last minute projects and late night cram sessions only serve to stress students out more than ever. Many are feeling the pain of procrastination as they struggle to finish big projects and papers they have put off all semester. Students are feeling the weight of classes and looming finals, but it is vital Bobcats hang on, study hard and finish the year with solid grades. It can be tempting to opt for a “C” in a class instead of taking extra time to hit the books during long nights of study sessions in the hopes of landing a “B” or an “A.” Some professors recognize and reward extra credit points to help bump up grades if they know particular students have shown up to class regularly throughout the semester and steadily worked to improve their grades. Even for those who have caught themselves slacking off, now is the time to buckle down and make the semester one to be proud of. As the pressure to succeed begins to pile up, it is important to remember to stay calm, focused and relaxed. Students worn out by various end-of-the-semester

stresses should take advantage of positive thinking techniques and on-campus tools in order to ensure success. For example, the library is open 24 hours a day during finals week, and has extended hours beforehand, providing students with computer access and quiet study spaces. It may take hard work, but a solid final grade will positively affect students’ GPAs and ultimately be worth the dedication when looking back on the semester. Resources like the Student Learning Assistance Center and the Writing Center can ensure students will pass their classes this semester instead of having to retake them in the spring. It is also important for Bobcats to take care of their general well-being heading into crunch time. Eating right, getting enough sleep and setting a study schedule are all ways students can alleviate end-of-the-semester stress. Texas State hosts several events to help over-worked Bobcats. For example, Jones Dining Hall holds a moonlight breakfast for students who are on campus in the wee hours of the morning studying. In addition, the university sometimes hosts therapy dogs in Alkek Library for those who feel overwhelmed as finals begin to approach. Students should put in as much effort as possible to ensure their semesters do not end on a sour note, especially entering

winter break. If students slack off and fail classes they could have passed with more effort this semester, they may dwell on that fact, and it and might even ruin what is supposed to be a relaxing break. For students graduating this fall, they have the opportunity to end with a bang and score the grades they have longed for during their entire careers at Texas State. For those who are expected to graduate in May or later, winter break is a time to recharge and relax before the spring semester. Ending the fall semester well can provide students with refreshed dedication and a positive mindset for spring. No matter how much effort has been put into the semester so far, students still have time to improve grades. Students should take advantage of the many resources on campus that can help them cope with the longing for winter break and heavy workloads that come with the end of the semester. In addition, students should ensure they take care of themselves during the potentially stressful period and get enough rest, food and downtime to succeed. Now is not the time to give up. Students should keep their eyes on the finish line and do all they can to end their semester on a positive note.

Students should be aware of eating disorders, misconceptions

Women’s clothing stores need more functional options

A study published in JAMA Pediatrics showed many young males suffer from undiagnosed eating disorders and distortions of body image, according to a Nov. 12 USA Today article. While this may be contrary to the popular belief that eating disorders only affect women, it is the reality of thousands of young men across the world. According to the same article, of 5,527 teenage males surveyed, 17.9 percent were concerned with the way they looked and were more likely to engage in alcohol and drug abuse. Though women tend to be more concerned with how thin they are, the study suggested men are more consumed with muscularity and athletic builds. Additionally, the survey showed 2.4 percent of men experienced anxiety over muscularity and used supplements, growth hormone derivatives and steroids to manage their body shapes. Many young men in denial or trying to seem tough may be reluctant to seek help. It may not be the easiest thing to do, but people who admit they have an eating disorder and need help can drastically improve their lives. Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia and Binge Eating Disorder are three commonly misunderstood conditions. Eating disorders can often be displayed through symptoms such as extreme emotions, attitudes and behaviors surrounding weight and food issues, according to the National Eating Disorders Association website. They can produce serious consequences for a person’s health, productivity and relationships. Students who suspect they know someone suffering from an eating disorder should encourage the person to immediately seek help for his or her condition. It may seem difficult to reach out to those who may need help, but kindness may be the one thing that saves their life.

spikes is difficult already, and on top of that, the shirt will probably need another one to go underneath it. The additional shirt will probably cost $20 and, more than likely fray after two washes. Women’s jeans do not make any sense either. A man’s waist size and leg length are conveniently and uniformly printed on the tag of every pair of jeans. Many women’s jeans tend to only have a single number printed that sometimes has nothing to do with waist size and differs across every brand. Asking for a woman’s jeans size is useless—she could be a size seven in one brand and a 10 in another. Even then, pants might fit correctly in the waist, but be too long or short in the leg. Additionally, many pairs of jeans come with holes already cut into the thighs or knees for aesthetic purposes. The men’s section of a clothing store is stocked with simple shirts, pants and jackets. When shopping in the women’s section, it takes 10 different scraps of cloth just to put together a functional outfit. I recall one time thinking I found a simple, normal T-shirt while shopping. I tried it on and admired myself. It fit perfectly, it was not see-through and it was flattering. When I turned around to admire my backside, there was a hole in the back of the shirt—it was ruined. Now, if I bought the shirt, I would have one cold spot on my back. Women’s clothing stores need more cheap, functional clothing options. Looking cute is possible without having triangles cut into the lower back of a dress. As women, we are ultimately paying more money for less fabric, and that is messed up.

Molly Block Opinions Columnist Journalism senior

exas State students need to understand T eating disorders are serious emotional and physical issues that can affect both men and women and should never be taken lightly. Contrary to popular belief, eating disorders are not specific to gender or sexuality. They are not just a “girl thing,” and they certainly do not just affect the extremely thin models walking down the runway during Fashion Week. Unfortunately, these myths have been spread throughout the media for generations, and many people have just accepted them as fact. The truth is, eating disorders can affect people of all ages with any body type. Seemingly healthy young men and women at Texas State could be silently suffering, and many students would sadly have no idea. Among women between the ages of 15 and 24 years old, approximately one out of every 200 suffers from anorexia nervosa and about one in 50 is bulimic, according to an article from U.S. News on eating disorders. Many women feel pressure from magazines, TV shows and friends to look a certain way. The world’s definition of beauty is unrealistic, yet so many men and women fall prey to this belief.

omen’s retail clothing is impracW tical and overpriced. When I browse attire in the mall, I cannot help but feel whoever is running these clothing companies is half asleep.

Lambda hosts biannual, theme-oriented drag show

Kathryn Parker | Staff Photographer

Shannon “Gaga Riverton” Cantu headlines the Bobcat Ball Nov. 16 at Bar One 41. By Jordan Gass-Poore’ Trends Reporter

Multicolored lights zigzagged across Bobcat Ball Saturday as some attendees clad in bustiers and stockings for the event’s burlesque theme danced to electronic music at Bar One 41. The biannual event, hosted by Lambda at Texas State, raised funds for the on-campus lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning and allied community group. Members of the Texas State and San Marcos communities came out to show their support for Lambda. Attendees included Bobcat Ball emcee Kelly Stone, family and consumer science lecturer, and Thom Prentice, former city council and mayoral candidate. “(Lambda) provides a safe space and an outlet to socialize,” said Lambda president Terena Cloud as she checked to make sure her stick-on mustache was in place. Fake sideburns, red pants with

suspenders, a black-and-white striped shirt and a fur coat completed Cloud’s ensemble. Cloud said the opportunity to dress in costume is one of her favorite aspects of Bobcat Ball. Cloud said the event has provided a positive way for people to celebrate the LGBTQA community and bring them together since it began in 2000. “We have a really good, supportive administration (at Texas State),” said Jesse Almazan, former Lambda president. “I’ve heard and I’ve experienced it’s one of the best ones—they’re really open.” As the music pulsed through Bar One 41, Corpus Christi resident Alizae Marie Riverton prepared for Bobcat Ball’s amateur drag queen and king show with members of the four-piece “Riverton Clan.” “(Drag is) basically an alter ego,” Riverton said. “You get to bring yourself out like Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj. It’s pretty much like that and how you get your

point across.” Riverton, originally from Houston, said he found out about the event from Shannon “Gaga” Cantu, now “Gaga Riverton,” a former Texas State student known as “drag momma.” They met through another drag queen in Corpus Christi. This was Riverton’s first time attending Bobcat Ball, and he prepared approximately 45 minutes beforehand for the event. Donning a long, curly brown wig, neon green bra and a formfitting sparkly, black leotard, Riverton was ready to perform his lip synch and dance routine to Bobcat Ball attendees. “You have to be humble because if you’re not humble, then you’re pretty much not gonna get anywhere,” Riverton said, adding he plans to undergo hormone therapy soon. “You have to be strong minded, and you have to have the power to do it. It takes a lot of guts to get in drag and to step out on stage. It really does.” Cigarette smoke and fog from

a machine on stage hung loosely in the air as emcee Stone, who moonlights as a stand-up comedian, introduced the 10 drag queen and king contestants.

Kelly Stone, family and consumer sciences lecturer, hosts Bobcat Ball. After some technical difficulties, Riverton performed first. Though his “Texas hair,” as Stone referred to the wig, may not have been enough to win the contest, he placed in the top three. Two

male strip teases followed, causing audience members to giggle, cheer and reach for their wallets, but neither of them were crowned the winner. Before audience members chose the winner, Stone’s brown chaps provided much fodder for some. Three volunteers, after being asked, attempted to rip the chaps off and expose the denim shorts underneath. A brief “make out” session between Stone and a volunteer subsequently ensued. Then, it was time to crown the winner. Drag queen Regina Silverthorn held a paper crown on top of his head with “X” marked hands. Stone questioned Silverthorn about how he would solve world peace, and he said it would be done through liposuction. Bobcat Ball concluded the night’s formal festivities with backto-back performances by Cantu, who lip synched and danced to two songs by Lady Gaga. “I do Gaga—I do whatever I feel like doing,” Cantu said.

Texas State loses on road, scoreless in second half By Gabby Tropea

Sports Reporter @gabbytropea

State defeated Texas State Aingrkansas Saturday 38–21 with the Bobcats givup a season-high 328 yards rushing to

the Red Wolves. Arkansas State became the fourth university in the Sun Belt Conference to become bowl-eligible with the win against the Bobcats. Louisiana—Lafayette, Western Kentucky and Texas State are eligible to be invited to a bowl. The Bobcats gave up 5.8 yards per rushing attempt and did not score in the second half of Saturday’s game. Arkansas State ran the ball 57 times in the matchup and lost 5 yards on the ground. “The kicking game was ineffective,” said Coach Dennis Franchione. “Then, the offense didn’t score any points in the second half. We got beat in all aspects of the game.” Freshman quarterback Tyler Jones threw a 41-yard touchdown pass to junior running back Terrence Franks on the Bobcats’ first drive. Arkansas State immediately came back with a touchdown on a three-play drive. Franks was responsible for two touchdowns while sophomore tight end Ryan Carden scored one of his own. The teams ended the first half with a 21-point tie. “When I scored the two touchdowns, it felt really good,” Franks said. “I saw the team get all happy. It felt like it was going be a good game—a close game.” Arkansas State ended the second half with two touchdowns, adding a 23-yard field goal to finish the game. Red Wolves sophomore running back Michael Gordon had 19 carries and ran for a career-high 184 yards with three

touchdowns. Gordon averaged 9.7 yards per carry and did not rush for any negative yards. Arkansas State senior running back David Oku, preseason first team All-Sun Belt selection, rushed for 55 yards on 16 attempts and scored a touchdown. Senior quarterback Adam Kennedy was 14 of 18 passes for 96 yards throwing a touchdown and an interception, adding another 78 yards on 18 carries for the Red Wolves. Jones was 17 of 28 passes for 204 yards and threw for two touchdowns, adding 18 yards rushing on 11 attempts. The Bobcats totaled 210 receiving yards and added 175 rushing. “We lost the line of scrimmage,” Franchione said. “It was kind of a total team thing. We don’t have time to sit around and feel self-pity because we got a team coming in next week that is as good as this team. We got to get ready.” The Bobcats dropped to 6–4 overall and 2–3 in conference play. The Red Wolves improved to 6–4 overall and 4–1 in the Sun Belt standings. Arkansas State maintained its hold on second place in the conference standings while Texas State sits fifth.

Tilbury registered two of the five 3-pointers made by the Bobcats. “I’m just here to help contribute,” Tilbury said. “We just have to take it one day at a time, keep working hard and success will come our way. We need to collectively buy into the system and come together.” Sophomore forward Emani Gant led the team with 14 points and six rebounds, followed by seniors Joel Wright and Phil Hawkins who each scored 9.
