If your sins must be suggested to you for you to feel guilt about them, can you be truly sorrowful for them? At the Echo, we would argue that you cannot.

It is interesting that every SGA presidential candidate is using, at least in part, the platform of personally improving communication between the senate and students when there is a public relations director who serves on the executive committee. If the elected president is concerned about and preoccupied with relaying information to students, who is going to focus on representing the student body on all the committees the president sits on. Not to mention, it would leave the public relations director without a reason to get paid. After all, SGA executive committee members receive a stipend. The current public relations director has done a good job getting information to students, especially considering unprecedented situations, like the attempted impeachment of the SGA president and a District II senator, arose and had to be dealt with. As things stand right now, the public relations director is supposed to inform students about SGA programs, and the senators are supposed to inform their constituents about everything else. Obviously, that isn’t working. It would be better if the public relations director was in charge of all information SGA wishes to give to students. I suggest starting the improvement of an

updated list of senators. The SGA Web site still lists last semester’s senators and committee chair holders. One presidential candidate mentioned tweeting to relay updates. The current and previous SGA presidents have a twitter account, but it rarely is utilized. It would make more sense for the public relations director to send the tweets. The public relations director could bring a laptop to senate meetings and provide breaking news as bills are passed or rejected. Also, if senators represent students in their district and sit in the district based on their major, it only makes sense that the new public relations director be a communication major. Within the communication department, students take classes designed to prepare WKHPIRUMREVLQWKHSXEOLFUHODWLRQVÀHOG The communication department also sponsors UTC’s chapter of Public Relations Student Society of America.

If   I   were   more   entertaining,   my   subject   matter   more   engaging,   perhaps   you’d   pay   better   attention.   But   I’ve   heard   from   far   cleverer,   talented   and   wildly   entertaining   faculty   that   texting   seems   endemic   to   the   classroom.   You  probably  don’t  need  to  be  reminded   that  this  is  a  university  (aka  an  institution  of   higher  learning).  It  would  be  awfully  quaint   and  boring  to  point  out  that  classrooms  are   places   where   you   learn   rather   than   manage   your  burgeoning  social  calendar.  Forgive  me   for  stating  the  obvious.   Maybe   it   would   help   you   to   know   that   PDQ\ RI XV ÂżQG \RXU WH[WLQJ ZKLOH ZH are   trying   to   conduct   class—a   class   we   have   spent   a   great   deal   of   time   and   effort   preparing—just   plain   rude.   So,   if   I   can’t   appeal  to  your  sense  of  academic  decorum,   or  respect  for  the  institution,  your  professors,   or   learning-­in-­general,   how   about   this?   Texting  not  only  makes  you  appear  stupid,  it   makes  you  stupider.  OMG.  That’s  right  (And   if  you  weren’t  so  busy  texting  you’d  know   that  I  probably  shouldn’t  write  “stupiderâ€?).   Although   many   students   claim   to   have   mastered  the  art  of  multitasking,  it  is  neither   a  skill  nor  a  gift.  I’ve  even  had  students  claim   they   are   really   good   at   texting   and   paying   attention  because  they  have  ADD  or  ADHD.   Whatever.   In   fact,   multitasking   over-­ stimulates  your  brain,  making  it  impossible   for  you  to  process  everything  that’s  going  on.   Many   experts   agree   multi-­tasking   is   a   P\WKDPLVJXLGHGIDQWDV\ORRVHO\DIÂżOLDWHG with   our   desire   to   have   it   all—at   once.   A  

study   published   in   the   Proceedings   of   the   National   Academy   of   Sciences   found   that   the   majority   of   multitaskers   were   unable   WR GLIIHUHQWLDWH EHWZHHQ WULĂ€LQJ WLGELWV DQG really  important  stuff.   They   also   have   trouble   organizing   information,   and   they   take   more   time   switching   between   tasks.   Furthermore,   while  performing  one  task,  multitaskers  are   preoccupied  with  the  tasks  they  aren’t  doing.   Ditto   from   Clifford   Nass,   a   professor   at   Stanford   University,   whose   experiments   revealed   “multitaskers   are   terrible   at   every   aspect   of   multitasking.   They’re   terrible   at   ignoring   irrelevant   information;Íž   they’re   terrible  at  keeping  information  in  their  head   nicely   and   neatly   organized;Íž   and   they’re   terrible   at   switching   from   one   task   to   another.â€?   A   study   on   multitasking   by   the   Department   of   Psychology   at   Texas   Tech   University   concluded   that   multitasking  

results   in   “cognitive   overload,â€?   which   means,  for  instance,  you  have  exceeded  the   limit   of   the   brain   to   divide   your   attention   between  the  lecture  and  your  text  messages.   Not   only   does   texting   during   class   tax   your   teeming   brain,   it   can   affect   your   memory.   A   study   from   the   Department   of   Psychology  and  Brain  Research  Institute  at   the  University  of  California  found  that  “dual-­ task   conditionsâ€?   (i.e.   texting   while   trying   to   pay   attention   to   a   lecture   or   discussion,   or,   heaven   forbid,   texting   while   driving),   reduce  your  ability  to  “permanently  retain“   information  presented  to  you.   All  this  to  say,  many  of  us  know  you  are   here  to  learn,  and  to  improve  your  lot  in  life.   We  know  you’ve  got  lithe,  capacious  brains,   VRGRQÂśWÂżOOWKHPZLWKWULSH In   the   liberally   edited   words   of   Mark   Twain,   “It   is   better   to   keep   your   [phone]   closed  and  be  thought  a  fool  than  to  open  it   and  remove  all  doubt.â€?

The Chattanooga community and UTC as a whole saw a shocking surprise April 1 as the UTC Athletics Department released new colors for our Mocs. The athletics department, as D MRNH IDOVLĂ&#x20AC;HG D SUHVV UHOHDVH informing the community that instead of the traditional blue and gold, UTC would be replacing blue with a more environmentally friendly green. ´*UHHQ Ă&#x20AC;WV LQ ZHOO ZLWK WKH natural environment and habitat of the Mockingbird,â&#x20AC;? UTC Director of Athletics Rick Hart said to GoMocs.com. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As we seek to continually improve as a department, we felt that adjusting our colors to hues more in line ZLWKWKHFDPSXV¡*UHHQ,QLWLDWLYH was a logical step.â&#x20AC;? According to GoMocs.com, DORQJZLWKWKHQHZĂ&#x20AC;FWLRQDOFRORUV the UTC Athletics department would also launch a new slogan for fall sports; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Blue + Gold = Green.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x153;With our championship tradition, the members of the Southern Conference are already â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Greenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; with envy,â&#x20AC;? Hart said to GoMocs.com. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are excited to WDNH WKLV VWHS DQG , KDYH KHDUG from many fans and supporters who are already looking to trade in their old Blue for some Green.â&#x20AC;? The athletics department made the announcement of the color changes on GoMocs.com, facebook and Twitter. There were several links embedded inside the story on GoMocs.com that were disguised to look like areas to purchase or obtain free green and gold apparel. The links turned out to be a page that revealed the truth. The athletics department offered a season ticket special to the community for being good sports and playing along as part of the joke. According to GoMocs.com the offer was, â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a reward for your support of our failed attempt to change to Green, renew or purchase 2011 UTC Football Season Tickets today and receive

We also had a number of people reach out to us and applaud us for the creative approach and thank us for reminding them to renew their season tickets.â&#x20AC;? bradley-­bacon@mocs.utc.edu

Debate Cont.  from  1 Chandler, Ariz., junior, said she serves on University committees, the SGA campus observation committee chair and studies in the University Honors program. Shubert said SGAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s communication does not consider its audience. Simply sending emails is not enough, Shubert said.

Bell said giant poster boards and countdowns should be used, Kinsinger recommended more creative programs and Shubert advised more incentives. The treasurer candidates were tested on their knowledge of the position. Evan Williams, a Jackson, Tenn., freshman, Zeno Mercer, a Memphis sophomore, and Stephen Turner, a Marshall, Mo., junior, are on the ballot. None of the three could answer how much each student paid towards the SGAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 606 student activity fund. Van said it was $4. Zeno correctly said the treasurer

Football Cont.  from  6 extend the score to a 20-7 Gold squad lead. The Blue team rumbled into the end zone later in the third when senior Thomas Green, a running back from Hixson, Tenn., broke the goal line on a 4-yard touchdown run. Pollard nailed his fourth extra point of the day and shortened the Goldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lead to 20-14. The Gold team had the only scoring play in the fourth TXDUWHUDQGWKHĂ&#x20AC;QDOVFRULQJSOD\ of the scrimmage, when freshman quarterback Reese Browning, from Knoxville, hooked up with freshman receiver Michael Gray, from Nashville, on a 30-yard 6-point toss.
