Super Bowl ad won’t be from UTA team One team of UTA Chevrolet ad challenge competitors will have its ad shown on TV. By ZaBrina ransom The Shorthorn staff

The university will not get a chance to see a Chevrolet ad by communication students run

during the Super Bowl, but the students will still receive national and local attention. Seven advertising seniors were chosen, in teams, to be among the top 20 finalists in the Chevy Super Bowl College Ad Challenge after competing against students from 250 colleges and universities.

Alex Solano and Ben Taylor made up one university team. Although their ad was not chosen for the Super Bowl, Chevrolet account representatives notified Solano and Taylor that their entry will be used as a national campaign ad for the new line of vehicles. The team was one of more

than 800 entries asked to have its ad used for this campaign. Solano and Taylor were told their video would be easy to adapt to commercial format, particularly because it would be affordable. “Ours was a very budgetfriendly commercial,” Taylor said. Taylor said he has seen his team’s work aired on the ABC

Music to the Ear

and Fox networks. The ad will be broadcast for six months. The team’s ad was made into four commercials, each introducing one of four cars: Aveo, Equinox, Cobalt and HHR. Viewers will see a family sending their daughter to college in the Cobalt ad, and a family enjoying time at the park with

a game of father-son catch in the Equinox ad. The ad for the Aveo depicts group of students at a football game where a cheerleader is handing out pizza trying to be popular. The HHR ad features a young lady walking to her car while trying to gain AD continues on page 3

Music Department will hold February recitals to suit many different tastes By Cassie smith Contributor to The Shorthorn

The Music Department will host seven recitals during February. The recitals will include trumpets, a wellknown guest cellist, pianos, a jazz trio, the university’s wind ensemble, violins and performances by the winners of the Fall Concerto Competition. Music events manager Steve Winkler is looking forward to showcasing the students’ hard work and preparation. “Attendance to the recitals depends on the event; average senior recital, you have a great turnout between each person’s family members and all their friends. I think the spring semester is an exciting time for the Music Department between all the performances going on,” Winkler said. Philip von Maltzahn, who began playing cello at age 9, will be the guest cellist Feb. 7. Von Maltzahn is a member of the Degas QuarMUSiC continues on page 3

What a Rush The ladies of Delta Zeta sorority wined and dined their active and potential members Tuesday night as part of recruitment week. The members, clad in black, white and a “splash” of red, gathered for lasagna and cheesecake martinis. Floating red candles lit the dining room of the sorority house. Undeclared freshman Jessica Gray

is pledging the sorority. “All the girls are really nice and down to earth,” she said. “They are really accepting and make anything fun.” The sorority hired a chef from El Centro College to prepare the fivecourse meal. Delta Zeta will host recruitment events all week.

Committee confers on resolutions

Meal plans allow off-campus use

Parking ticket appeals and transcript costs were among resolution topics. By ray edward BuFFington iV Contributor to The Shorthorn

The Student Congress Community Affairs committee discussed a parking ticket appeals Web site, increasing the amount of laptops available and the duration students can rent them from the library, and lowering transcript costs Tuesday. Obtaining information to pay or appeal a parking ticket is not an easy venture, said Collins Watson, Student Congress vice president. He said a Web site would be a more efficient way for students to find out what they need to do. “We’ve got an appeals system in place that is under-utilized be-

cause either no one knows it is there or no one knows how to use it,” the biomedical engineering graduate student said. “A simple Web site and a little blurb on the ticket on how to get there would go a long way in helping students.” Melanie Podzielinski, public relations senior and committee chair, said the 48 laptops available to rent at the library are insufficient to cover the 25,000 students at the university who might need one, and the time constraints on students needing the portable computers for outof-town competitions. “If these students are going on [national] conferences and need the laptops for more than 24 hours, it is a shame we can’t SC continues on page 3

The committee discussed issues including a parking ticket appeals Web site and the availability of laptops to check out.

Chemistry junior Miranda Brycage didn’t realize she could venture off campus for lunch and still use her Mav Express card. “I think if more people knew about this they would really find it helpful. I can already see this becoming a lifesaver, especially if I’m short on cash one day,” she said. Students with meal plans B or C may use the included Dining Dollars at some off-

campus locations. The Commuter Plan, which contains $200 in Dining Dollars, is included. Psychology sophomore Bryan Johnston didn’t know about the meal plans’ versatility until recently. “I’m not sure how I didn’t know this was available to me until recently, but ever since I found out I have been using it almost as much as I use my Dining Dollars on campus,” he said. “I love the convenience of knowing I have some money at all times.

University program links U.S. families with international university community members’ spouses BY CASSIE SMITH Contributor to The Shorthorn

Sang Linagamani left her teaching job in Bengal, India five years ago to come to America so her husband could finish his degree and work at the university. A housewife now, Linagamani volunteers in the community to meet new people and stay active since she is not enrolled in school. Her husband spends his days active at the university, so she had to find a social group to meet people. The International Education Office provided that outlet. It hosts the InMORE ternational Spouses INFO Club so that For more internationinformation, al or Amerivisit http:// can spouses www.uta. of university edu/oie or community call 817-272members 2355. can meet together every other Tuesday to socialize, make new friends and learn different aspects of the members’ cultures. The club’s purpose is to ease international spouses’ transition into the U.S. by providing a fun social outlet. “Moving here was a very, very big change in my life. This program is a real support for me,” Linagamani said. “I was so, so happy to find UTA was bringing spouses into the world.” She said the club has done

different crafts, built gingerbread houses, gone on picnics and participated in pumpkin carving for Halloween. “In the beginning I missed India a lot. Now I have a lot of friends and activities. I am very happy now. I do miss my family though. It has been three years since I was there last,” she said. “I’ve learned a lot from watching just the simple interactions of other people.” International programs coordinator Courtney Bauman hopes to help the club grow, since it is still a fairly new organization. “I think the club is good for all women,” Bauman said. “We are definitely relying on the spouses who attend UTA to go home and tell their wives about this opportunity.” International education adviser Tara Hammett founded the club. “When I started the club, not yet being a mother myself, I found help through some American wives to decide what type of activities to do and when to hold the meetings,” Hammett said. “I think it is nicer to have a mix of American and international spouses.” Linagamani loves to cook food specialties from India. She regularly cooks for her church and will teach Indian cooking in one of the upcoming club meetings. The club held its first meeting of the semester Tuesday. The UTA Police came

Students and faculty will have the opportunity to eat lunch while learning how to lose weight today at QUEST University Wellness’ first Lunch-n-Learn seminar of the semester at noon in 315A Central Library. The session is the first of four talks on healthy eating habits. Attendees can bring their lunch to eat during the talks. Jeremy Roden, the program’s interim assistant director, said the program has started to offer nutrition tips to everyone on campus during the lunch hour. In today’s talk, dietician Nancy Pacilio will provide hints on how to keep the pounds down. The remainder of the semester’s Lunch-n-Learn sessions are scheduled for Feb. 21, March 25 and April 25.

Student jailed for two days after reporting rape by PhiL daVis Associated Press writer

History freshman Jeremy Collins has used his Mav Express card at off-campus locations often and enjoys the convenience it offers him. “It’s incredibly convenient. However, I would not have ever known about it until one of my friends told me. It’s probably too bad that more people don’t know,” he said.

But if not, maybe they can increase the number of laptops available, because I think that would solve both problems. There still would be more for students to use.” The difference between ordering a transcript online for $7 and obtaining one in person for $17 had co-chair and nursing sophomore Charlie Lin wondering why anyone would pay extra money. “With 25,000 students on

this campus, a free transcript is going to cost a lot with the envelopes, the paper and the printing. I think it is ridiculous with the difference in cost to walk in to the Registrar’s Office and order one for $17, than to order one online for $7, so they are charging you $10 extra dollars to walk to their building,” he said. Lin hopes to reach a standard, economical transcript fee for both, or make the in-person transaction cost less. The committee will conduct research on each resolution and meet again Feb. 13 to discuss its findings and vote on each issue. ray edward buffington iV

It’s a wide variety of styles, and the tango is just a fun piece,” von Maltzahn said. “It’s really great to be coming back to UTA again, especially for this.” Elizabeth Morrow, music associate professor of cello, studied with von Maltzahn for five years before he went to other schools. “Phillip is from Arlington, and his father used to teach on the faculty here doing biomedical engineering. Phillip was once a student of mine when he was in high school,” Morrow said, “Now a profes-

sional, he was interested in coming back, so I eagerly invited him.” The Feb. 19 Cavanagh Trio Recital will focus on jazz music. It will feature Daniel Cavanagh, jazz studies assistant director, on piano. Stockton Helbing will accompany Cavanagh on drums, and Brian Mulholland will play bass. “I’m really excited to be working with Brian and Stockton. They are really creative musicians and performers. Together, we can really be creative with both our performing and improvising. We will be performing some of my very own music that I have written and has never been played before for the public,” Cavanagh said. “Plus, we will also play some additional jazz music.” The wind ensemble will host its third concert in its series Something Old, Some-

thing New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue. The music will feature wind classics from composers Vincent Persichetti and Darius Milhaud. The first of three spring performances of the Clavier Piano Recitals will also be in February. Music associate professor John Solomons looks forward to see the results of students’ hours of practice. “This series gives the music students a chance to play their pieces that were assigned to them toward the beginning of the semester. The requirement for them is that they must play their piece by memory,” Solomons said. “I am very excited to see all these upcoming recitals. It is especially great to get the opportunity to see the graduating students perform what they have worked so hard for.”

Taylor said the actors and voice-over operator his team used for the campaign was contacted for future job opportunities. Taylor said the team has received contacts from law firms and is considering opening an ad agency in which UTA students will be hired to intern and create campaigns for different establishments, including restaurants. A percentage of the profits will be donated to a scholarship for advertising and marketing majors. “It’s a unique opportunity. I never thought it’ll come this far. It’s done wonders for my career,” he said. Rashundra Harvey and Shenika Williams’ ad was not chosen, but they were asked to be interviewed on Channel 11 the day after the Super Bowl. Harvey said she too wants to open an ad agency in the future. “I feel pretty good. We got national exposure as well as local exposure. A lot of students tried to be in the same position that we were in and they couldn’t,” she said. The other team, comprising Kevin Dubato, Lindsey Harvey and Jamaar Williams, might have its ad shown today.

The ShorThorn

Editorial/our viEw

Blind Alley The student regent selection process should be a little more anonymous if the five finalists chosen for the student regent position are graduate students at medical schools, does any undergraduate student with even the most impressive resume have a fair shot at the position? Probably not. The UT System Board of Regents selection committee, which selected the finalists, narrowed down the applicants via a “blind” decision-making process, meaning it did not look at the applicants’ institutions. Considering four of the five finalists attend the UT Medical School at Houston, it’s hard not to question just how “blind” its process is.

Editorial rounduP The issue: The five finalists chosen for the UT System Board of Regents student regent position are all medical graduate students. We suggest: Next year, the board should be more clear about its criteria for applicants.

if it truly is a blind process and five medical students in graduate school were chosen because they were the most qualified candidates, perhaps the board is holding its applicants to standards that make it difficult for undergraduate students to compete. The non-voting student seat was created by the Texas Legislature in May 2005. The student holding that position advises the board about issues relating to students and is responsible for conveying and representing the sentiments and concerns of the student body. The position isn’t simply an hon-

lEttErs

orary title. The voting members of the UT System Board of Regents are experts in finance, law and business. The student perspective adds a much-needed sense of diversity to the board’s decision-making process. it is in the interest of the board, and every school in the UT System, to have the most qualified student serve in this position. Medical students are notoriously hard-working, as are law students, such as the soonto-be-former student regent Brian Haley. Certainly their academic achievements would be enough to confirm their eligibility. But how well can a graduate

student, who has moved on from his undergraduate experience and can devote more time to his field of study, represent the concerns of every student in the UT System, undergraduate and graduate alike? We can only wish the finalists the best of luck and that the position rightfully goes to the applicant who can best work with the interests of the UT System. in the future, the board might be better off turning a “blind” eye to the undergraduate and graduate ranks of their applicants. Otherwise, they should better publicize the standards they hold their applicants to.

Justice for All?

Males are subjected to many unfair standards Re: “Beware the Fashionazis,” Jan. 26. Ray Edward Buffington IV complained of a phenomenon of which he and I are ultimately the beneficiaries. When he went to offer his servile off-hours to that local restaurant, he may have perceived himself to be the victim of sexism. But the scenario he described — being rebuffed, but the blue-haired, hole-punched female gainfully employed — was actually male-favoring chauvinism. It seems clear to me that the manager of that restaurant simply expects more from men than from women. For the purpose of this letter, I’ve looked through my last few restaurant receipts. The last three, with totals of $15-20 per person, had female names as my server. But the last three with totals of $75100 per person were tickets waited on by men. For some reason, men at serious restaurants are expected to be mature and professional but women are accepted when they are superficial and frivolous. It’s not just in watering holes. I read recently that year after year boys are named for important and ancient historical figures — Michael, Joshua and Alexander are always among the top 10. What of American girls? Ashley, Crystal, Brittney? Why, God? Why do parents look at mewling and puking infant boys and see future holy warriors and world conquerors, but look at the same creature in the female version and see no substantive or historical inheritance at all? I meet Tammys all the time, but why so few Marys, Judiths and Isabellas?

One Georgia teen’s ordeal demonstrates how good laws are put to bad use

G

enarlow Wilson is a good kid who made a bad decision. On new Year’s Eve 2004, Wilson, who was 17 at the time, checked into a Days inn motel with some friends. They got drunk, invited some girls over and turned on a video camera. When the tape of what happened in the motel room surfaced, the state of Georgia took action. The tape showed Wilson and his friends receiving consensual oral sex from a 15-year-old girl. Under Georgia state law at the time, oral sex with anyone under the age of 16 could dan trEadway be classified as aggravated child molestation — a felony. The law was enacted to incarcerate pedophiles, not kids. Had Wilson been caught on tape simply having sex with the girl, it would have been declared statutory rape, which is only a misdemeanor in Georgia. Wilson, an honors student and star athlete at Douglas County High School, had his reputation shattered. Although the girl’s family didn’t press charges, the district attorney’s office demanded the case be taken to

trial. Wilson was offered a plea bargain for a reduced sentence, but the terms of the deal stated he would be required to register as a sex offender. Wilson has a younger sister that he adores and he knew that if he accepted the plea bargain, he would never be able to live under the same roof with her again. Wilson and his family took their chances in court and remained hopeful that justice would prevail. While many jurors did not agree with the law, the tape clearly showed evidence that Wilson had broken it. He was found guilty of aggravated child molestation. Genarlow Wilson, at the age of 18, was sentenced to 10 years in prison without parole. He was also required to register as a sex offender upon his release. Almost two years after his sentencing, Wilson is 20 and still sitting behind bars. Since he was imprisoned, the law that sent him to jail has been changed. The new law — created because of Wilson’s case — declares that no teen prosecuted for consensual oral sex can receive more than 12 months in prison or be required to register as a sex offender. What’s sickly ironic is that Wilson cannot benefit from the law that was created due to his case, because the law is not retroactive. This case has revealed a disgusting lack of humanity by the Douglas County district attorney’s office. The office could release Wilson as early

as tomorrow but chooses to keep him behind bars because it doesn’t want to admit a mistake. Wilson’s supporters have started an online petition asking Georgia lawmakers to support a bill demanding Wilson’s case be

taken back to trial so his sentence may be reduced. Here’s hoping for their speedy success. Genarlow Wilson is a kid who made a bad decision. He’s not a criminal. —Dan Treadway is an undeclared freshman.
