Locks aims to debunk hairstyle stereotypes

Oozing preparation

The group advocates that it’s the individual who makes the hairstyle, not the other way around. BY MEGAN FALCONER The Shorthorn staff

Students have a new organization to join that was inspired by a hairstyle and stereotypes. That organization is called Locks. Members don’t have to have locks because the group is for anyone who has had locks in the past, has locks now, want locks or just like them and want to know more. Currently, Locks has 15 members and five more are wanted before the first official meeting is scheduled. The group’s main goal is to build on the notion that just because one has locks doesn’t mean he or she should fall under the pot smoker stereotype. “When I went home to Indiana and went to the gym a guy just came up to me and interrupted my workout just to ask how I washed my hair. I told him with shampoo,” said Ethan De Nolf, Locks vice president and visual communication senior. Nursing junior Mike Williams said he blames the media for the stereotypes. “I don’t think I’d look good in locks,” he said with a laugh. “Hopefully, this group reverses how the media typically portray people with locks.” The organization is a way for individuals to express themselves as with any other hairstyle, and can take up to four months for the locks to look tidy. It is considered negative slang to refer to locks as dreads because of the original association of the murdering bandits of Africa who were feared by others and recognized by their

REGISTRATION

Hispanic Heritage month kicks off Wednesday Piñatas, dancing and dominoes all will be part of the Hispanic Heritage Month kickoff as students mark the beginning of the month Wednesday. The event is scheduled from noon to 1 p.m. in the Rio Grande on the second floor of the University Center. The heritage kickoff will include a variety of activities at different booths. In addition to refreshments, music and contests, a raffle will be held for an iPod, nursing senior Emmelene Fernando said. Carlos Plancarte, Hispanic Heritage Month chair, and Fernando, events coordinator for International Students Organization, have combined efforts to spearhead the event. Hispanic Heritage Month runs from Sept. 15 to Oct. 15. Other events in the works are a soccer tournament this Saturday and a full night of folkorico, a type of Hispanic dancing that will be featured briefly on Wednesday.The four-member Multicultural Mavericks Executive Board, which is now in its third year of existence, also coordinates efforts for Black History Month, Women’s History Month and Asian Heritage Month. It works with a student planning committee, which is open to all students. “It’s very important because it shows students what different cultures are like,” Plancarte said. “When they leave here, they will have to interact with people from other cultures, and getting that experience in college will make them better professionals.” – J.C. Derrick

Early registration for the tournament ends today. Late registration will be open to teams until the event reaches full capacity. Registration forms and a medical waiver must be completed and submitted to the group’s office at 841 W. Mitchell St. The forms can be found online at www.uta.edu/alumni/saa/saa_oozeball.

“Every year it’s grown,” Atanga said. “The more people that find out about it, the more people want to play.” Atanga estimated that 55 teams have signed up for the event, but that’s not taking into account teams from residence halls, a number the group is still compiling. Much planning in many areas goes into the event, said Drew Barfield, intramural sports assistant director. “There’s a lot of marketing, creating the marketing pieces to advertise the event,” he said. “Also, there’s a lot of preparation that goes into the actual courts.”

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW Cost is $75 per team. Fees cover six T-shirts and a roll of duct tape for the team. Students can register as free agents for $15. After today, entries are subject to a $20 late fee. A team must consist of at least five players, which includes at least two women. Entry forms must be returned to the Alumni Association, located at 841 W. Mitchell St. or faxed to 817-272-2597. OOZEBALL continues on page 8

Study abroad students get travel requirements Attendees learned that the travel warnings for northern Mexico expired Sept. 10. BY JOSE D ENRIQUEZ III The Shorthorn staff

On Monday, the Office of International Education held two ses-

sions on its Study Abroad program to inform and answer questions for students who want to study overseas. The study abroad program allows students to earn university credit and live and expand new horizons personally and educationally. There are five programs students can choose from when considering

studying overseas. There is, what many students may consider traditional, the UTA Reciprocal Exchanges program, where a local student trades places with an international student at a partnering university overseas. Students will pay tuition to UTA, while housing fees will be paid to the hosting institu-

tion. Students can also choose among UTA affiliated programs. These programs will operate through a thirdparty company where students will pay tuition and fees to the third party, and grades will be based on pass or fail. “These are third-party study

abroad programs that UTA has affiliated with, so you still get UT resident credit course work,” Study Abroad adviser Kelsi Cavazos said. “The grades are recorded on your transcript as pass or fail, so as long as you pass the course your G.P.A. ABROAD continues on page 3

This semester the Diversity Lecture Series is holding an ace in the hole. His name is Kip Fulbeck. Fulbeck isn’t the usual squarecut, stand behind the podium, monotone-voice speaker. He uses audio, video, photography and slam poetry to engage his audiences around the world. The University of California Santa Barbara, tenured art professor has four published books, several award winning films and speaks at universities and conferences in more than 20 countries about diversity. In his Nov. 3 lecture in the Bluebonnet Ballroom, the Chinese, English, Irish and Welsh 30 year old, will speak about his belief that we are who we define ourselves as, not the world’s view. “This guy’s like a rockstar, you can feel his energy an hour before he gets on the stage. Picture your ideal professors and roll them up into one and that’s Fulbeck,” Multicultural Affairs director Leticia Martinez said.

Career Center hosts jobs workshops More than 50 attended the events last week. By Megan Falconer The Shorthorn staff

The Career Center held workshops to help international students combat situations that arise when applying for a job. The workshop emphasized information on the importance of finding a sponsor one year after graduation. Students must have a sponsorship with a company they work for or have already been approved for a green card, or risk deportation. More than 50 international students attended the work shops last week. Some of the things discussed were when President Barack Obama signed a law on Aug. 13. It added an extra fee to businesses that hired an international employee. “The law was passed in hopes that most businesses would be discouraged from hiring noncitizens and hire jobless Americans,” said

Nick Branen, OneSource Virtual HR employment manager. The additional fee of $2,000 to $2,250 for businesses that have more than 50 international employees can be deducted from an employee’s paycheck. An additional fee that can be pulled by the employer is $1,000 for expediting the employee’s résumé.

“There’s a lot of stuff to know and we’re trying to get professionals from companies to go over business problems the students may face with any corporation,” career consultant Conssandra Lewis said. “America is not the land of opportunity it used to be.” International students can apply for on-campus jobs through Hire A Maverick and SNAP Job without the worry of having to go at the job market alone. Yi-Wei Huang, mechanical engineering graduate student, said most of the information he needed to know he had to find out through other students and friends before attending the career workshop. He said the workshop was so detailed and full of information, that he can go directly to the correct websites to find out all he needs to know in one click.

However, there are a couple that do programs during the wintermester. A UTA instructor teaches the program to students overseas. In this case, tuition and fees will be paid to the university but also include a program fee. The Study Abroad program isn’t just about learning, it’s also about exploring. Attending classes overseas is much like attending classes in the states. You may have evenings and weekends available to explore the country, and some of the faculty-led courses may have trips planned as part of the curriculum. “I’m really interested in learning the language, but on top of that, I want to learn about other cultures,” nursing sophomore Michael Conn said. “So I just kind of want to know what goes on in the rest of the world.” The Office of International Education heeds the U.S. Department of State’s travel alerts. Students studying abroad should register their travels with the State Department, according to the Office of international Education website.

For places where travel warnings were in place, like northern Mexico, students were not allowed to actually travel there, until the travel warning was lifted, Cavazos said. “The good thing is that when you study abroad as a UTA student, you are going to have the university behind you,” said Cavazos. “All

going to be some select ones that require a 3.0, but those will be clearly marked and we will let you know that it does require a 3.0,” Cavazos said. While there is a lot of information to check prior to applying, some students interested in overseas programs might want to know first and foremost what it would cost them to attend classes, travel and live in another country. The cost of each program varies, but meeting with advisers will give students a better understanding of what to expect in costs. Information is coordinated with Financial Aid Office to recalculate financial needs to ensure that study abroad students get as much as they can either through UTA financial aid, grants and scholarships. Scholarships are recommended to ensure that all financial need is met, or as close as possible. Students also can apply for UTA’s International Education Fee Scholarship. It’s based on need, merit and offered only twice a semester. “Financial aid will be dependent on when students file their FAFSA. The Study Abroad scholarship is based on how many students enroll, and $1 is taken from each student to fund the scholarship,” International Education director Blake Hart said. “The money goes back to students who apply and are awarded the scholarship.”

Imam says NYC mosque site is not ‘hallowed ground’

Shop owner cries foul over Perry ad AUSTIN — The owner of a small Austin grocery store whose shop is shown in Republican Gov. Rick Perry’s new television ad says she doesn’t endorse him for reelection. Farm To Market Grocery owner Peg McCoy said Monday she did not give permission for her shop to be used in Perry’s campaign commercial and that she wants the ad to be taken off the air. Perry’s campaign spokesman, Mark Miner, said the footage was filmed on a public sidewalk and that the ad will keep running. He said the governor supports policies to help small businesses, even though not all business owners back him. McCoy’s shop sells locally grown food and flowers. Its storefront can be seen in the ad, which also shows other Texas businesses. McCoy said she’s not endorsing Perry’s Democratic opponent, Bill White, either.

Associated Press

NEW YORK — It may be two blocks from ground zero, but the site of a proposed mosque and Islamic center shouldn’t been seen as sacrosanct in a neighborhood that also harbors a strip club and a betting parlor, the cleric leading the effort said Monday. Making an ardent case for the compatibility of Islam and American values, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf reiterated that he was searching for a solution to the furor the project has created. But he left unanswered exactly what he had in mind. If anything, Rauf only deepened the questions around the project’s future, telling an audience at the Council on Foreign Relations think tank that he was “exploring all options” — but declining to specify them — and underscoring what he saw as the importance of a location that would draw attention to his message of promulgating moderate Islam. And while opponents of the project see it as insulting the memories of the thousands killed by Muslim extremists in the 2001 terrorist attacks, Rauf said he didn’t see it as sacred memorial space. “It’s absolutely disingenuous, as many have said, that that block is hallowed ground,” Rauf said, noting the nearby exotic dance and betting businesses. “So let’s clarify that misperception.” The proposed Islamic center has become a flashpoint for worldwide debate about Islam’s place in America nine years after the Sept. 11 attacks. Controversy has colored the fall campaign season and cast a shadow on this past weekend’s commemoration of the attacks, with supporters and opponents of the mosque project both holding rallies nearby. Rauf says a project meant to foster understanding has become unduly mired in conflict and what he describes as misconceptions of a fundamental clash between Islamic and

New drug-resistant superbug found AP Images: David Goldman

BOSTON — An infectiousdisease nightmare is unfolding: A new gene that can turn many types of bacteria into superbugs resistant to nearly all antibiotics has sickened people in three states and is popping up all over the world, health officials reported Monday. The U.S. cases and two others in Canada all involve people who had recently received medical care in India, where the problem is widespread. A British medical journal revealed the risk last month in an article describing dozens of cases in Britain in people who had gone to India for medical procedures.

Linda Jacknow (shown right), 70, argues against Aviva Stampfer, 21, of Manhattan, N.Y., left, and Blake Luley, 23, of Brooklyn, N.Y., over their positions on the Mosque in NYC during a protest on Saturday.

American values. The Kuwait-born Imam used his own life story as an example, saying that his own faith had been shaped by the sense of choosing one’s identity that American society provided, compared with the predominantly Muslim society from which he emigrated in 1965. “I’m a devout Muslim ... and I’m also a proud American citizen,” said Rauf, noting that he was naturalized in 1979 and has a niece serving in the U.S. Army. “I vote in elections. I pay taxes. I pledge allegiance to the flag. And I’m a Giants fan.” He said Monday that the Islamic center’s organizers were surprised by the uproar and might not have pursued it had they known what was coming. “The events of these past few weeks have really saddened me to my very core,” he said, lamenting that the project had been misunderstood,

clouded by stereotypes, and “exploited” by some to push personal or political agendas. But he declined to detail any strategy for quieting the clamor — or say whether that might include moving the project. “We are exploring all options as we speak right now, and we are working through what will be a solution, God willing, that will resolve this crisis, defuse it and not create any unforeseen or untoward circumstances that we do not want to see happen,” Rauf said during a question-and-answer session following his speech. “Everything is on the table. ... We really are focused on solving it, and solving it in the way that will create the best possible outcome for all.” He suggested the locale’s high profile served an important purpose for the proposed $100 million Islamic

center, which organizers describe as featuring prayer space, but also a swimming pool, culinary school, art studios and other features. “We need to create a platform where the voice of moderate Muslims would be amplified,” Rauf said. “This is an opportunity that we must capitalize on so that those who teach moderation will have a mega-horn.” But to at least some who listened to his talk Monday, that’s not what Rauf is doing. Fouad Ajami, a Middle East studies professor at Johns Hopkins University, said Rauf ’s appearance didn’t change his misgivings about the mosque project. “I just think it’s provocative,” Ajami said. While organizers may have the right to build it, “the prudence of it, the wisdom of it” is the question, he said.

U.S. Border Patrol agents open fire into Mexico Associated Press

SAN ANTONIO — The U.S. Border Patrol says agents fired gunshots into Mexico after coming under attack while making a drug bust along the Rio Grande. Border Patrol spokeswoman Rosalinda Huey said Monday that no agents were injured

during a “fire fight” in Mission over the weekend. She did not say whether anyone in Mexico was hit by Border Patrol gunfire, citing the ongoing investigation. Huey said Border Patrol agents were seizing a halfton of marijuana Saturday when the shootout began.

She said a truck pulled up on the Mexico side of the border when someone opened fire on the agents. In June, a Border Patrol agent fatally shot a 15-year-old Mexican boy after authorities say a group trying to illegally enter Texas threw rocks at officers near downtown El Paso.

Top: San Antonio resident Kimberly Aubuchon’s “The Gathering...revisited #3” was showcased Saturday at the Sustenance Exhibit in Downtown Dallas. The piece was made of felt and yarn, creating birds of flight in a shadowy place. Above: Dallas resident Sally Warren views pieces from assistant professor, Sedrick Huckaby’s “Girl World” Saturday at the Sustenance Exhibit in Downtown Dallas. “I came to this showing tonight to show my support to other artists,” said Warren, who considers herself a local artist.

New ‘Sustenance’ exhibit in Dallas shows work from DFW, San Antonio and Chicago

S

tephen Lapthisophon has turned a vacant, dilapidated building into a feeding ground for the senses. Hard to miss, the bright blue two-story building in West Dallas is currently home to Sustenance, a site-specific exhibition featuring two-dozen artists ranging in age and background. The artists created sitespecific works on-site that responded to the idea of sustenance and the environments around them in the building. Organized by drawing professor Lapthisophon and co-curator Anne Lawrence, the exhibition features graduate students and artists from the Metroplex, San Antonio and Chicago with works that span different forms of media. The exhibition is open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays and 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Sundays until Oct. 3. Each artist chose a space in the abandoned two-story building and worked off of their surroundings to create something relative to the environment. Some of the works are painted, drawn or fixed onto wall surfaces while others hang from ceilings, generate sound or even glow in the dark. “We’re working with the environment as the environment is,” Lawrence said. “These artists have the freedom to change it, to modify it – to really intervene in a way that they may not be able to in other spaces.” The exhibition opportunity came about through one of Lapthisophon graduate students, Justin Ginsberg, who had a connection to the people who owned several brightly-colored

buildings on Singleton Boulevard. Had Lapthisophon not come across the building, the exhibition would not have culminated as it has. “It’s made for this building,” he said. “Definitely in the chicken-andthe-egg scenario, it was definitely building first.” He explored some of the buildings initially to use as studio space or to photograph work but said he thought this particular building would be an ideal place to invite artists to create an exhibition. “The title of the show came from the idea that we wanted the building in a way to collaborate with the artists,” he said. “The building itStephen self would have a Lapthisophon, voice or a role as drawing professor a participant so that a lot of the art doesn’t overwhelm the building. It is enough to be noticed.” Lapthisophon said the first thing he noticed about the building was its bright blue exterior. “The interior was dark, dirty and raw,” he added. “Now in some ways, it’s not quite as dirty but still fairly raw, just with art in it.” For the exhibition, Lapthisophon said he wanted a variety of artist types, but also wanted artists whose work had a raw quality and would work well with a raw space like the dilapidated building. “Artists always enjoy the challenge of new space and a new audience and

‘The Garden’ by professional artist and Dallas resident Frances Bagley, was one of the many works showcased by UTA, Dallas and out-of-state artists alike in the Sustenance exhibit. This piece happened to be one of the favorites amongst many of the people at the showing.

I think that the audience will enjoy seeing art in unexpected places,” he said. “I think they’ll get that excitement of discovery.” Lawrence, who’s worked in museums, universities and commercial galleries, met Lapthisophon through a gallery he was in and the two worked together last year on an exhibition. The Sustenance team held their first meeting at the end of June, but the artists didn’t start working until about two weeks before opening day. “When you’re trying to do something like this with no budget and no support from any large organizations, it just takes a lot of time and effort and everybody has to pitch in,” Lawrence said. She said the exhibition is about the need to create, fill up and embellish. She added that with the economy, people feel like they’re barely getting by and that at many times, art is

story by alanna quillen | photos by Jazzmyne Greer

Screenwriter and director Paul Anderson sends main heroine Alice everywhere from Japan to the western seaboard in the fourth entry of the zombie video game adaptation series. What results is a solid, but slightly boorish hack, slash and shoot adventure. Resident Evil 4: Afterlife picks up where the third film left off, with Alice in the midst of her struggle to settle a personal score with the Umbrella Corporation. Set four to five years after the start of the zombie apocalypse, the Earth is still full of the undead and humanity is dwindling. In this installment, Alice, played by Milla Jovovich, comes in contact with a group of survivors held up in a prison, attempting to reach an area free of infection. Ali Larter returns as Claire Redfield from the previous film while Wentworth Miller appears in a comfortable, but forgetful role as one of the video game series’s key characters, Chris Redfield. This marks the first in the series to be filmed using the same 3-D camera system James Cameron developed for Avatar. The third dimension hardly adds anything new to the film and its use is predictable and uninspiring. When the film’s antagonist throws his sunglasses blatantly at the camera as a distraction, the camera clearly overplays the 3-D slow down. The action is fluid, despite having its cheesy moments. Fans of the game series should enjoy this entry into the saga, while others may be lost by game references and lack of a cohesive story. — William Johnson

Fall Semester 2010

Since 1919

Long Before UTA Was UTA, The Shorthorn Was The Shorthorn Years before the “UT” preceded the “A’ at the college now knowsnas the University of Texas at Arlington, and years before there was a Longhorn in the family, there was The Shorthorn. No relation, thanks.

Your Life, Your News Our goal at The Shorthorn is to provide news, information and a public forum for UT-Arlington’s growing, diverse and active campus community. The Shorthorn is UT-Arlington’s student-run newspaper. It is published Monday through Thursday during the fall and spring semesters, weekly during the summer semester and is available 24/7 online at www.theshorthorn.com. Here’s some information to help you utilize resources The Shorthorn provides for the UTA community.

HOW DO I GET A STORY IN THE SHORTHORN?

The Shorthorn is divided into sections, and each section has an editor who decides what content will be published in that section. If you have a story idea or coverage request, contact the editor whose section is most similar to your event or topic. (See “Contact Us” information below.) If you’re not sure which editor to contact, e-mail Editor in Chief Mark Bauer, editor.shorthorn@uta.edu. The editor in chief has final authority over all Shorthorn news and editorial content.

In 1919, students at what was then known as Grubbs Vocational College needed a name for their fledgling literary/humor magazine. With a $2.50 prize from the dean as incentive, an ensuing contest yielded such poetic possibilities as KornKob, Swat News, Horse Sense, Grubworm and Tool for the name of the new publication. In a three-ballot election runoff, the student body chose Shorthorn over other finalists GVC Shots and Thistle. The first issue — 6 by 9 inches, 48 pages with a bull in a bull’s-eye for a cover — appeared in April 1919. The first newsroom masqueraded as a wide spot in the hallway leading to the adviser’s office on the third floor of Ransom Hall, the campus’ oldest building.

WHY DOES THE SHORTHORN WRITE STORIES ABOUT SOME EVENTS AND NOT OTHERS?

Shorthorn copy desk chief Johnathan Silver and copy editors Jessica Parnell (center) and Cabrera Moore give Shorthorn content one final edit before it is published. The Shorthorn staff includes approximately 80 students in more than 25 different paid positions.

The Shorthorn evolved into a newspaper in 1921 and has thrived in spite of a world war, the Depression, ice storms, too many technical conversions and computer crashes to count, and debilitating attacks within the student staff of transient hormonal surge. On a campus noted for change, The Shorthorn has been a constant, growing into a daily publication in 1977 after stints as a biweekly and weekly. It remains one of UTA’s oldest traditions and most-respected sources of news and experience. Along the way, it has also won the country’s most prestigious college journalism awards and has moved many times, most recently, in 1994, to the University Center’s lower level, which is to say basement, in the site formerly occupied by the campus’ now-defunct bar. People who call The Shorthorn their first newsroom job now hold key professional positions at newspapers and other media operations throughout the Metroplex and beyond. We hope you will make reading The Shorthorn in print or online one of your daily habits at UTA this year. Let us know what you like. Use Shorthorn space to share your opinions and become part of the campus discussion. Also let us know when we don’t meet your expectations. We want The Shorthorn to be your main source of news and information — just as it has been for students, faculty and staff here since 1919.

— The Editors

On any given day, there are more things going on than Shorthorn reporters and photographers can cover. Decisions about what to cover are made each day by Shorthorn editors. Timeliness of a story is always a factor: Something happening today is more timely than something happening two weeks from today. Editors also consider the significance and potential impact something will have on UTA students, as well as human interest when considering stories about people, trends and things like that. The amount of space available in each day’s edition is determined by the number of ads sold for it. If you have an event that you would like The Shorthorn to write about or cover, contact editors at least a week in advance: If you wait until the last minute, all available staff and space on the day of your event may have been assigned to other stories before editors knew about your event.

HOW DO I GET MY GROUP’S EVENT LISTED IN THE SHORTHORN’S CAMPUS CALENDAR?

You can submit information for the Campus Calendar by e-mail, calendar.shorthorn@uta.edu, or by filling out the Campus Calendar form available in our office and online. Include a brief description of the event as well as time, date, place, price and a publishable phone number or Web site. Also include your name and telephone number, in case we need to contact you about your submission.

HOW DO I PUT AN AD IN THE SHORTHORN?

Advertising helps pay for The Shorthorn. We make our lowest ad rates available to campus organizations and departments. Contact Sales Manager Dondria Bowman, admanager@shorthorn.uta.edu, to discuss paid advertising. Registered student organizations also may be able to earn discounts for paid ads by participating in Shorthorn marketing initiatives. Contact RJ Williams, marketing@shorthorn.uta. edu. The Shorthorn also offers free classified ads to current UTA students placing ads for themselves. Free ads can be placed in person at The Shorthorn office. (Bring your student ID with you.) To place a paid classified ad, come to our office or go to our Web site.

The Shorthorn

Exhibition continued from page 5

something that gets pushed aside. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What artists realize is that art is actually really important. You need art to survive,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And it is one of the things that sustains us. You can think of art as a form of sustenance, along with buying groceries and paying the bills.â&#x20AC;? The exhibition takes viewers through a maze of rooms, crumbling brick walls and dusty crevices. Lawrence said she wants guests to see artists working in a venue where many rules that may apply in galleries donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There continues to be a real hunger in this area for exhibitions that break the mold,â&#x20AC;? Lawrence said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People are genuinely excited about whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on and I think that just reflects a need in the community.â&#x20AC;? Lapthisophon said he wants viewers to be alert and open to the small, incidental beauties around them and to be curious and inquisitive about exploring. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Be open to possibilities of what art can do, what art can be,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of the art of the show will require you to do some investigation.â&#x20AC;? Chicago artist Matt Hanner had a limited time to create something specific to his environment, having arrived just two days before the opening. He said after walking around for a few hours, he decided he wanted to make a piece that was part inside the building and part outside. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was impossible for me to make up my mind on what I was going to do before I got in here,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wanted to make something that was

still me but different from the rest of the show.â&#x20AC;? Using a piece of black card stock paper for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Remote Outpost,â&#x20AC;? he made a stencil of an old farm and fixed it onto a wooden beam above the stairs. If the viewer stands at the right angle on the stair steps looking out the main entrance, they can see the same old farm stenciled in hot pink on the building across the lot. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a one shot, one of a kind, site specific, outside the institution kind of an art show,â&#x20AC;? Dallas resident Shane Mecklenburger said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really stick to one medium.â&#x20AC;? Mecklenburger, an artist, attended the exhibition opening on Saturday and said his favorite piece was the video installation by local artist Brian Fridge. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very simple and very brief. It uses the environment and sort of creates a story about that wall,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a metaphor of breaking through walls or barriers and time. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about time and space without being preachy.â&#x20AC;? Upstairs, intermedia studies graduate student Kate Helmesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rootingâ&#x20AC;? occupies a dark, dusty bathroom with a low ceiling. An old radiator is still fixed on the back wall and the pipes have long rusted and disappeared. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I chose the bathroom because previous work I have done with the university involved installing in the bathroom for another gallery,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really liked it and wanted to explore that kind of space again.â&#x20AC;? Her work, made mostly of charcoal and gesso, a primer, involves images drawn on the walls, stalls and broken toilets of the bathroom. A crumbling wall with charcoal-colored edges reveals the brick interior

of the building. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I looked into the environment further, I had just begun using my own figure as a stencil with charcoal dust,â&#x20AC;? she said. Downstairs, Frances Bagleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Gardenâ&#x20AC;? uses real and fake apples hung neatly behind industrial tubing strewn through the ceiling. The deep sound of breathing is heard from a large speaker hidden within the silhouette of black tubes. Bagley, a professional artist with 40 years experience, designed a hanging garden for the Dallas Museum of Art that was based on sets she and her husband did for The Dallas Opera. From that project, she used the leftover tubes to create her new garden in this exhibition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I do this kind of thing because it really gets your juices flowing,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really exciting to do something loose and off the cuff with other artists that isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t at a gallery or museum or something official.â&#x20AC;? The last day of the show will partially be a benefit for Hunger Busters, which feeds underprivileged children. Lapthisophon, whose own work often deals with food and nourishment, said along with food providing nourishment, art can provide a similar kind of sustenance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that kind of suggestion, that creativity, surprise and excitement we get from art is what sustains us,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need art to keep us going.â&#x20AC;?

The group is the newest, freshest organization on campus and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re here to debunk all the myths and stereotypes,â&#x20AC;? said Bongani Mlambo, Locks president and film and video senior. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lockingâ&#x20AC;? parties will be planned

to help everyone with upkeep and creation of their own locks. Members will attend events to show support for members with dreads and learn the history behind locks. The Locks organization can be recognized by their flyerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Facebook group, which display an edited photo of President Barack Obama with locks.

THE SHORTHORN

Oozeball continued from page 1

To cut down on the expense of hauling in dirt for the courts, facility maintenance crews are working to till up the ground for the courts, Barfield said. Three truckloads of dirt have been ordered to fill the courts. Lowe’s will donate 600 bags of top soil, which will be used to line the court boundaries instead of using rope, Barfield said. “If you use rope, they’re going to disappear in the mud,” he said. Some students who have experienced Oozeball before said they’re excited about the upcoming event. “It’s really unique to this campus,” said Emmanuel Obeng-mensah, a health management graduate student who’s been in Oozeball before. “Students like to go out and jump in the mud. It’s a good show of campus spirit.” But despite the campus spirit, Obeng-mensah is staying out of the mud this year. “I don’t want to get dirty,” Obengmensah said with a laugh. “But it’s a lot of fun to watch.”

OOZEBALL TURNS 21 ON FRIDAY MORE THAN 140 TEAMS ARE ANTICIPATED TO REGISTER TO PLAY THIS YEAR.

Oozeball champ gives pointers for Friday’s tournament Alumnus Shahmir Abbasi has been on the winning Oozeball team for the last two years. How did he help guide his teams the “Muddogs” and “Wolfpack” to victory?

Here’s his five tips for Oozeball success: 1. 2.

TAYLOR CAMMACK news-editor.shorthorn@uta.edu

3. 4. 5.

Keep your feet moving, so you don’t get stuck in the mud. Make sure you have a good amount of duct tape on your shoes to keep them on. Stay focused on the game. Don’t put your head down. Don’t lose concentration. Stay hydrated. You’re going to be playing during the hottest part of the day. Have fun!
