FACT: The Japanese launched approximately 9,000 balloon bombs against the United States during World War II. The balloons, which were filled with hydrogen and carried anti-personnel bombs, were released into the jet-stream winds, which carried them 5,000 miles across the Pacific Ocean. The Japanese hoped that the bombs would explode in the forests of the American Northwest. Even though 1,000 bombs made the trip across the Pacific Ocean, only 225 actually reached the mainland. The first balloon landed near San Pedro, Calif. on Nov. 4, 1944. The bombs were discovered as far north as Canada, as far south as Arizona’s border with Mexico, and as far east as Farmington, Mich. A number of the bombs were shot down by the U.S. military, but most of them landed without exploding. None of the bombs started the huge forest fires that the Japanese military had hoped for. Many more American civilians would have died if the Japanese had attached biological weapons to the balloons. @the university of west alabama

bestbookdeal.com Books are important for most educated people. From the individual who reads for his or her pleasure to the parent looking for the perfect storybook for his or her toddler, books can be very costly. How can readers find the common and rare titles they want, affordably?

Bestbookdeals.com, a great Web site that does not directly sell books, instantaneously compares the prices of books and textbooks from over onehundred different book selling Web sites across the globe. Also, the price of the actual book isn’t the only factor involved in the comparison. Other than

29 september 2011

the cost of the book, the Web site takes shipping cost, shipping time, sales tax and even the availability of the book being searched for, into account. Bestbookdeal also has a section that promotes and shows special offers, coupons, and deals being offered by various Web sites, such as amazon. com, bamm.com, and ecampus.com, that range from free shipping offers to discount promotional

codes. Even though bestbookdeal doesn’t actually sell the books, it still serves as a useful tool when trying to find a great buy without having to crawl a dozen sites, one at a time, for the best price. Of course, people want to help themselves by saving money when purchasing books, but people who

wish help others with their purchase should check into another great book Web site that actually sells books.

betterworldbook.com Betterworldbooks.com is a unique company that helps the world through a unique agenda. The founders of the Web site proposed a brilliant business model. They collect books, either long-forgotten or ones to be trashed and done away with, and sell them. The three college friends wouldn’t just use the revenue brought in by the books to support and grow their revolutionary company, but also to fund literacy and bring books to less fortunate people all over the world. Just a few of their literacy partners include “Books for Africa,” “Invisible Children,” and

the “National Center for Family Literacy.” In fact, betterworldbooks has raised over ten million dollars for non-profit organizations by donating money from the purchases of the books. However, this is not the only means by which this company does good. Through “Book for Book,” they donate literature. For every book purchased by a customer, one book is donated to a less fortunate person. To date, over 5 million books have been donated. Better World

There is nothing like variety, and the people at TeeFury. com understand that variety, mixed with a little pressure, creates the perfect pitch in today’s environment. TeeFury was created in 2008 by a group of artists who just loved limited edition merchandise. This provoked the idea to supply a creative, interesting, one-of-a-kind T-shirt for only $10.00; however, the sale would only last a total of 24 hours. After this time period, the shirt design is removed from the site, never to be sold on TeeFury at any price ever again. TeeFury allows anyone with a creative spark to apply a design idea to be sold, giving them $1.00 for each shirt purchased. Shirts are made from 100 percent cotton, using a state-of-the-art screen-printing process. With so many creative designs, it’s hard not to appreciate the shirts, but be warned: each design lasts only 24 hours. Previous designs found on the site’s gallery include Black Ops Teddy, Chilled Monkey Brains, The Green Revolution, and Tin Man Tin Can.

On April 16, 2011, the University of West Alabama dedicated The Liza James Howard Courtyard in honor of its first AfricanAmerican student. Liza James Howard was enrolled at the university in 1966. She graduated in 1969 with a baccalaureate and again in 1976 with a master’s degree, both of which were in elementary education. When asked about her first response to receiving her acceptance letter, Mrs. Howard replied, “Prior to receiving the acceptance letter, I had a conference with President Deloney. We discussed admission requirements. At that time, classes were about to begin. I knew after the conference that I would be admitted.” Imagining Mrs. Howard’s first semester at UWA is difficult; even she says, “Finding words to describe my first semester at West Alabama is quite difficult. It was a time of uncertainty, anxiety and loneliness. I was stared at, called names, and most of all, ignored. I was occasionally acknowledged with a “hi” or a smile. In retrospect, it could have been far worse. Focusing on my goal of graduating and becoming a teacher and appropriating the grace of God kept me anchored.” This young woman’s

determination and faith have brought her what could not be described in any other way except for great success. She went above and beyond the expectations other people had of her and brought about change not only to this university, but also this community. Mrs. Howard’s favorite scripture, to which she attributes her service and inspiration to comes from Romans 8:31-“For we know all things work together for good to them that love God and are called according to his purpose.” Humble and meek, she gives all credit to her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and his plan for her life. Teaching is definitely a passion for Mrs. Howard, as evidenced by her three years of service to Head Start, her work as Director of the York Head Start Center and her 30 years of exemplary service at Livingston Junior High School. Not only was she successful in education but also in business. She turned a part-time job as a sales representative with York’s Primerica Financial Services into a full-time endeavor. She was soon named Regional Vice President of Primerica Financial Services. Since leaving the University of West Alabama, Mrs. Howard has served as a Bible Studies Teacher at Livingston First Baptist Church, as Vice President of the Sumter County Head Start Policy Council and as a member of the ministerial staff of True Vine Fellowship Church. She also served as a member of the Alabama Education Association, Sumter County Retired Educators Association, the National Education Association,

the Less Femmes Social and Scholarship Club, the York City Council, and the Sumter County Industrial Development Board. Because of her outstanding leadership in her community, Mrs. Howard was awarded the Trail Blazer Award. The Liza J. Howard Alumni Chapter and Liza J. Howard Scholarship were established by the University in her honor in 2003. In 2004, the University of West Alabama awarded Mrs. Howard the highest award by inducting her into the Society of the Golden Key in recognition of her amazing change she brought to the school and the community. When asked how her life had changed since attending UWA, Mrs. Howard said, “The experiences helped me look inside of myself to draw strength. I’ve learned to use every negative situation as a stepping stone. Life happens to everyone. It is the choices you make, coupled with a good attitude, that determines your destiny.” Obviously, her destiny was to change the lives of those around for the better. She has touched many lives due to her impeccable service and leadership and she continues to be an example and an inspiration to all whom she encounters.

heifer international: fighting world hunger, one bovine at a time robert sims

World hunger has become such a common phrase that often we do not grasp its full implications and consequences. However, world hunger is a legitimate problem, with legitimate consequences. Few of us have witnessed these consequences firsthand; however, thousands around the world live with them on a daily basis. During the Spanish Civil War, American farmer Dan West served as a relief worker. After becoming disillusioned with attempting to ration out very limited supplies of milk to large numbers of refugees, West founded Heifers for Relief. The organization sought to bring a permanent end to hunger by providing families with both livestock and training. West based this approach on the old Proverb, “Give a man a fish; you have fed him for today. Teach a man to fish; you have fed him for a lifetime.” Today, Heifer International has expanded beyond its humble

beginnings. In addition to sending out heifers, the organization also gives gifts of sheep, rabbits, and llamas. Animals are not all the organization is about, however. Heifer International also distributes tree seedlings. The organization has helped over 125 countries around the world. Heifer ensures its animals will eventually help communities by requiring the families they help to “pass on the gift.” The family must give at least one female offspring to another community member who has undergone Heifer’s training. That member will then

pass on an offspring, and so forth. Heifer receives its funding from numerous sources, including individual donations, organizations, congregations, and governments. In addition, the organization offers several fundraising options of its own, including “Team Heifer” and a “wedding registry,” that allow engaged couples to register for gifts to Heifer rather than overly expensive silverware. Those interested in becoming involved can find further information through the company’s official website: http:// www.heifer.org

individuals to forget butter in the store and turn their attention and money toward margarine. Yet, margarine soon created an even bigger problem, carrying high levels of fatty substances, raising levels of LDL (bad cholesterol) and lowering levels of HDL (good cholesterol). The overuse of margarine created even

more heart conditions. Looking back, the battle between butter and margarine is a false one, established to change up the cooking and buying habits of individuals. Like anything else, butter and margarine alike must be used with precautions and not in high quantities.

elise keller

Everyone knows the infamous war between butter and margarine. Which one is better for you? Which one should you use? Before answering these questions, one must assess what each substance is made from. Butter is created by churning milk repeatedly until hardened foam is created on top of the churning butter. Margarine is oil, heated until it hardens. Both are used increasingly by Americans; however, the question still stands, which one is better for you? If the truth be told, the long battle between the two has been over since the beginning. Butter, as many of us know, is high in fat and cholesterol, giving many individuals heart problems. This upsetting truth left many

active military scholarships shelby watwood

Military scholarships are now available for online students at The University of West Alabama for online students. Active military, reserve and National Guard members qualify. UWA says these scholarships are offered to say thank you for what the military does for us. Along with these scholarships, military members receive tuition assistance from the government. In many cases, military members do not have to pay any money with the use of both of these

services. Currently at UWA, undergraduate and graduate degree programs are offered online. If a military member is an undergraduate student, he or she could have 100% of his or her tuition taken care of. If a military member is a graduate student, he or she could have up to 90% of his or her tuition taken care of. Scholarships are awarded starting at $121 per credit hour, with a maximum of $363 per course, for undergraduate and

graduate students. Tuition assistance is usually $250 per credit hour, with a maximum $750 per course. Active duty military scholarships are available immediately. Those interested in applying for a military scholarship should contact Dr. Martha Hocutt at mhocutt@uwa.edu or (205) 652-3675. In order to receive a scholarship, one must show adequate proof of active status in the military.

Richard L. Thurn, a former Emeritus Professor of Physical Sciences at UWA from 1980 until 2002, will be honored with a rock memorial on Oct. 8 at 3:00 p.m. in the Blackbelt Gardens on campus. Visitors will be greeted at the entrance of the memorial with a bronze marker featuring a brief history of the 20 years of dedicated service provided by Thurn. A path constructed of various rocks and specimens of fossil will be on display for visitors to examine with a numbered panel to aid in identifying specimens. Professor Thurn was an honorary member of the Iota Upsilon Chapter of Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity. The Brothers worked diligently to prepare the gravel foundation for the memorial. According to lake manager Robby Limerick, “We are honored to be involved with this project and ask our fellow UWA alumni to consider making a monetary contribution to this commendable endeavor. Donations of any amount will be greatly appreciated and we thank you in advance for your support.”

flu season morgan presley

When you start to feel sick, most times it’s thought to be a common cold or sinus problems, but sometimes it’s more serious. It’s time to get updated with yearly flu shots. Free flu Shots are available at the Sumter County Health Department on Friday, Oct. 7 from 8:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m. Most students do not take the time to get their yearly flu shots and have to miss class for many days or weeks even if not taken care of properly.

Getting a flu shot can prevent the feeling of nausea and cold-like symptoms, such as elevated temperature, sneezing, coughing, and runny nose. When walking to class or sharing notes with fellow classmates, remember anyone can be a carrier. Use hand sanitizer or wash your hands anytime you come in contact with other people. A person might not look sick, but there is no sure way to know if he is walking around with the

flu. What is the flu? The flu is a contagious virus, readily is spread from one person to another when a person infected with the flu coughs or sneezes. Sometimes, people can become infected by touching their nose or mouth after touching an object infected by the flu virus. Here are some ways to prevent and detect the flu.

Avoiding the flu Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it. Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. You can also use an alcohol-based Drive-Thru Flu Clinic hand cleaner. Avoid touching your Friday, October 7 eyes, nose or mouth. 8:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. Germs spread this way. at Sumter County Health Department Try to avoid close contact with sick people. 1121 North Washington Street

how does your garden grow? 8

29 september 2011

www.uwa.edu/muse

brianna davis

Planting is generally left to farmers and our mothers, due to either lack of experience or not having enough time. However, a little research shows that growing plants really is not as complicated as some might find it to be. Due to the ever-bipolar weather of Alabama and the fact that cold weather is drawing near, you’re going to want to grow something indoors. First off, check with everyone to make sure it’ll be ok. Allergies are something that affect a large portion of human populations, and the vast majority of house plants are toxic to our domesticated animals. Once you’re in the clear, go ahead and pick your plant. A few plants to choose from for the last few months of the year are fruits, nuts, shrubs, grasses, roses, bulbs, and

vegetables. Your best bet for success would be to plant in a site exposed to full sun, with organic soil containing no harmful chemicals or oils. Plant small seeds a quarter to one half an inch deep; larger seeds should be about an inch under. For those of you who love radishes, onions, and greens, October is your month, so hop to. Good luck!

come together to offer a trip of a lifetime. The cost of this trip is about one-half what it would cost if you went on your own and will take the group through the most beautiful cities in the world. This trip will be during May of 2012. Flying overnight from Birmingham to Italy will be exciting, especially when you wake up in Venice. After touring the floating city, you are bound for the city of Bologna-which is not pronounced like the Oscar Mayer kind but it is known for its cured meat. The group then goes to Florence for tours through the streets where Michelangelo’s David stood and

then on to Assisi and Rome for more historical sites and tours. After you have processed, photographed and tweeted nine days of educational information you return home so you can tell everyone “how much you learned.” This wordsmithing is the key to getting your parents and grandparents to help pay for this great opportunity. For information on this tour, email Lesa Shaul at lcc@uwa.edu or go by her office on the third floor of Wallace Hall. No matter what it costs, this trip will be priceless!

connie james | muse

Call home and tell your Mom and Dad that professors are telling you that the trip to Italy in May of 2012 is mandatory. Or call Grandmother and tell her how much you can learn if you go on this trip.

a force to be reckoned with a close call for tiger football

star players: uwa soccer josh taylor

The most recent extracurricular activity added to the sports roster at the University of West Alabama is women’s soccer, which could be one of the most dominant sports offered at UWA. As with any sport for the soccer team to have any probability of success in its first season, it is essential that there be an emphasis on the fundamentals of skills and leadership. What this team lacks in experience, it can most certainly ameliorate with talent that is in the possession of this team. Experience and becoming a leader go hand in hand, and this team has found a true leader who has the ability to carry UWA to great heights in the Gulf South Conference. Jessica Martin, freshman goalkeeper, describes herself as being “a very vocal and motivated player,” a quality which allows this team to feed off her words of inspira-

tion and further enhance their ability to win games. Martin truly understands what it takes to be a great player. “I enjoy watching my team succeed in wins and learn from losses,” she said, demonstrating her ability to move on from a win and fully grasp the lessons that should be learned from a loss. Martin will be a dominant force for opponents this year and will be a fantastic goalkeeper this. Vicky Petrova, freshman midfielder, along with freshman forward Nicki Gears, are definitely players who will standout for this year’s team, being described as having “quick feet … and making some amazing goals,” said Martin. On the defensive side of the ball, the team is going to continue to rely on the play of freshman defender Sam Cable and freshman midfielder/striker Nicola Gibson, who have proven so far to be the essential

ingredient for success on that side of the ball. Martin goes on to say in regard to Gibson, that “though she typically plays in the middle, Gibson has made many of our goals so far and she has been moved back to a defending position, she has held very well,” especially considering her position on the field. These young players who have potential to be great rely on Graeme Orr, head coach of the soccer team “a hard working coach who knows the game, and who has recruited some of the most dedicated and talented athletes on the market, which has prepared UWA for an exciting women’s soccer season,” said Jessica Martin. Coach Orr stressed that in his eyes there are no stars on the team. The team works together, and that is why they have been having such a sucessful season.

The Tigers of the University of West Alabama took on Arkansas Tech in an attempt to extend their record to 3-1 on the season and their first win in Russellville since 1982. The Tigers’ fought hard on this game and held off Arkansas Tech for a surprisingly 17-12 victory, which Coach Will Hall said was “one of the best team wins [he] has ever been a part of” in his career as a leader of a team. UWA proved they can win a low scoring game that has a minimal amount of extravagant plays without their star quarterback, Gary Johnston, who was injured last week and will be sidelined for the rest of the season. Johnston’s replacement, Kyle Caldwell, threw for 128 yards and a touchdown, which shows fans that although they have lost a playmaker in Gary Johnston, they do have a player in Caldwell who can come in and

manage the game for the Tigers’. UWA’s receiving core came to play against Arkansas Tech led by none other than All-American Gerald Worsham, who caught seven passes for 98 yards. Matt Willis also contributed by posting his second career 100 yard receiving game in the win. On the defensive side of the ball, UWA is proving to be a strong, and stifling team with tremendous “ball skills,” says UWA student Justin Taylor. James Alexander, Otha Foster, and Deon Lacy, the leaders of UWA’s defense who created three turnovers against the Wonder Boys of Arkansas Tech. Alexander had a team high 9 tackles on the night while Lacy and Foster intercepted a combined 3 passes in the victory. UWA players finished off their last scoring drive, which included 12 plays and 74 yards and ended with a field goal by Ryne

Smith to extend the final score to 17-12. The Tigers’ are truly leaving everything on the field this year, which is the reason why they have a fantastic record of 3-1. It is true that there is always room for improvement, but this team is absolutely showing why it is the team to beat in the Gulf South Conference. The month of September was definitely a great month for this football team, but as they reach across into October with this talented group, we shall see how magical this season can be for the University of West Alabama. UWA will take on Harding University at Tiger Stadium in Livingston on Oct. 1, 2011, at 6:00 p.m. which will begin the gauntlet of tough games in the month of October, which eventually ends with a clash for the ages when UWA takes on UNA in Tiger Stadium.

hidden gems in rock robert sims

The early 1990s in rock music are more or less defined by Nirvana. Exploding onto the scene in 1992, Nirvana set off a movement against the overproduced, overly theatrical, ballad-heavy “hair bands” of the 80s. After Nirvana front man Kurt Cobain was found dead, the victim of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, in 1994, many believed “grunge” (as Nirvana’s musical style had come to be called) and died as well. In 1995, with the release of “Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness,” a massive double album, Billy Corgan sought to show that while grunge was dead, rock music most certainly wasn’t. The Smashing Pumpkins, already a firmly established band during Nirvana’s heyday, rose to unexpected heights with the success of “Mellon Collie.” The album produced five hugely popular singles, and The Pumpkins were honored for their contributions to the music video format at the 1996 Video Music Awards, taking home seven of the infamous MTV Moonmen statues. The Smashing Pumpkins would encounter their own fair share of internal drama. Following

the drug-related death of touring keyboardist, Johnathon Melvoin, longtime Pumpkins drummer Jimmy Chamberlin was fired from the band, and replaced for the second leg of the hugely successful Infinite Sadness tour. Always outspoken, Billy Corgan declared rock to be dead, and stated that the band’s next album would sound “nothing” like anything they had done before. This turned out to be true, as 1998’s “Adore” saw Corgan delve further into the electronica style music that he only briefly toyed with on “Mellon Collie.” While the album sold well and produced two successful singles, The Smashing Pumpkins were far from being the “biggest band in the world,” a title that Billy Corgan was more than happy to claim only two years earlier. By 2000, the entire musical industry was beginning to change drastically. Napster was allowing computer savvy teens and adults to build up massive collections at no cost whatsoever. Rock and rap, once polar opposites, had begun to come together like never before. Britney Spears, perhaps the embodiment of everything that Kurt Cobain’s initial

musical revolution was against, had become one of the biggest artists in the world. With all of these changes going on, Billy Corgan quietly rehired

bum that was made, and while it did virtually nothing on TRL or mainstream radio, it is, without a doubt, Billy Corgan’s masterpiece. A seventy-minute concept

Jimmy Chamberlin and expressed a desire to make one, final Smashing Pumpkins album. (While The Pumpkins did return in 2007 with the album “Zeitgeist.” The only original members to come back were Corgan and Chamberlin. “Machina” remains the final album to feature all four original Pumpkins.) “MACHINA|the machines of God” is the al-

album chronicling your own band’s rise and fall is about as pretentious as a musican can get. However, Corgan utterly thrives in the self-indulgence of it all, actually having the audacity to write and sing the line, “if I was dead, would my records sell, could you even tell, is it just as well?” “Machina” benefits strongly from its self-aware

adele 21 morgan presley

lyrical approach. Corgan was seeking to make the definitive Pumpkins album with this recording. In doing so, he toys again and again with the popular perception of the band, and what he believes the band to really be, in the album’s themes and production style. The album is quite overproduced, more so than anything else The Pumpkins had put out by this time. However, the over-production actually adds to the experience rather than detracting from it. This is, after all, a concept album. In many ways, Machina is the exact type of album that Nirvana was rebelling against. Overly dense, selfindulgent, and purposefully confusing, “Machina” is certainly not an accessible album. However, it harkens back to the work of former Pink Floyd frontman, Roger Waters. In many ways, this album is Billy Corgan’s “The Wall.” What makes “Machina” so good is the perfect marriage between Corgan’s rock sensibilities and his penchant for dabbling in electronica. Songs like “Raindrops + Sunshowers,” “Blue Skies Bring Tears,” and the ten-minute long “Glass and The Ghost Children” demonstrate

Adele Laurie Blue Adkins is best known as Adele, a British singer-songwriter. After the debut of her first album “19,” Adele achieved popularity in the United States with her hit song, “Chasing Pavements” and a “Saturday Night Live” performance in America. Adele released her second album “21” on Jan. 24, 2011, in the UK, and Feb. 22, in the US. The album received more rave reviews and brought Adele to worldwide record-breaking success. The singer/songwriter is now on a world tour promoting her new album, which includes “Rolling in the Deep” and “Someone Like You,” both achieving number one on the charts. Adele worked with musician and producer Dan Wilson on “Someone Like You,” the last song composed for the album.

this fact perfectly, as they feature some of the most solid instrumentation that the band has put on any album, along with a myriad of bizarre and strange sound effects that help ensure that the experience remains surreal and strange. A standout track that cannot be ignored has to be the one song on the album that could even loosely be called a “hit,” the single “Stand Inside Your Love.” If someone needed to sum up The Smashing Pumpkins with one song, “Stand Inside Your Love” would be the song to use. The production on the album gives the song a larger-than-life quality, but at its core, it remains a solid rock and roll anthem, and probably represents Corgan’s peak as a songwriter. “Machina” may be a little bit difficult to get into for some and has remained the most negatively reviewed Smashing Pumpkins album out there. The criticisms levied against it are some of the very things that I have praised it for, interestingly enough. It is an out-there, overblown, beast of an album, but a very, very good one. 5 out of 5 stars.

under the armpit). Using the discarded material you cut from around the neckline, wrap it around the gathered piece and tie a knot. Voilà! You are left with a triangular top with a draping bottom. Remember, if that is too much exposed skin for you in the back and sides, just make a shallower cut at the sleeves or rock a cute little tank underneath.

Do you have a drawer full of old Tshirts? I’m sure you do. We all do, especially ones with UWA on them. One way to put all those shirts to good use is by grabbing a pair of scissors and maybe a couple of cute pins and brooches and experimenting. You can create new and exciting pieces out of clothes you’ve worn a million times over. There are plenty of ways to chop, slash, reconstruct, and fringe up a simple T-shirt to make it into something awesome.

triangular top with draping bottom

A lot of the time, you can find great T-shirts at the Goodwill or thrift stores. The only downfall is that they are sometimes too large. We’re girls, not the Hulk. We want form-fitting shirts. Here’s a great idea to use if you’re planning to cut an oversized T-shirt and the process is fairly simple. Begin by cutting off the sleeves. Start about an inch below the armpit and go all the way up to the neckline. Make the cut wherever you feel comfortable. Just remember: the lower you cut, the more exposed skin you’ll have in the back and on the sides. That is an important detail to those who are not into showing too much skin. Next, cut the collar for a more relaxed feel at the neckline. I like cutting right at the seam, but if you want to go for a more off the shoulder look, cut a little lower. After cutting the neckline, flip your T-shirt over and pinch the back of the fabric (right

off the shoulders

If you love your shoulders, this cut is perfect for you! This is also one of the easiest ways to design a t-shirt. All you do is simply cut the top of your shirt off in a diagonal, sloping cut. Make sure you cut a tighter-fitting shirt, or else the T-shirt will fall too far off your shoulder, causing a “Janet Jackson” moment. Trust me, NO ONE wants to have one of those. If you do cut a shirt that is too large, a good back up plan is to get a cute tee to wear under the shirt. That way, you have something to cover you, and the excessive draping will not be as noticeable.

When it comes to dressing up a college T-shirt I prefer to go the classy way, especially when pearls are involved. These days, colleges put a lot into designing T-shirts. There are so many pretty and elegant designs. The best way to keep that feel is to wear your T-shirt with pearl accessories and soft makeup. These give off a lovely Marilyn Monroe image. T-shirts we think of as something we wear on a lazy or relaxed kind of day. I’d totally wear all these designs to an outdoor party, get together, even to a pep rally or outside game. If you’re going to wear these designs to a school-funded event, wear YOUR school name and logo. Nothing is worse than going to a West Alabama game with Alabama football T-shirts on.

Bell Conference Center fashion don’t of the week:

Less is always MORE! And when I’m saying this, I do not mean less clothes the better. I mean the less makeup the better. It’s just now starting to become fall ladies, and even though the season is changing, it’s still pretty hot on occasions; nothing’s worse than seeing a girl wearing heavy makeup in the heat. Why do it? You’re only going to sweat it off. Try neutral colors with light foundation for the fall.

hohn | special

by allen pilkington

Adoption may not be considered a hobby, but it is certainly something that has defined Dr. Elizabeth Hohn’s life. Her love for her family and passion for adoption allow every day to be an exciting adventure, even if it looks somewhat normal to the outside observer. Elizabeth Hohn currently teaches in the Education Department but will be retiring Dec. 1. Dr. Hohn has a passion for adoption and has adopted all three of her children from Russia. Jacob was adopted

from Moscow in 2002 and Amanda from Siberia in 2003. After six years, the Hohn family welcomed Benjamin, from Izhevsk. Hohn feels that adoption is a win-win situation by creating a family for those who want one and providing a family for children in need. Hohn said that the idea of physical adoption offers a great illustration for spiritual adoption into the family of God. Hohn has been to Russia six times and has had some great experiences while there. Her husband learned to never place bags on the floor; it is apparently unacceptable, for unknown reasons. They also learned to give the court judge an odd, never even, number of flowers as a thank-you gift. The cultural superstition is that even numbers cause bad luck. Status is much more important in Russia, a fact which is quickly apparent upon arrival. Some of the most enjoyable times in Russia were spent at the

American Embassy, where the Hohns got to meet others also in Russia adopting children. The Hohn family has some great memories together. Two weeks after Benjamin came home they went to Florida to visit family. Benjamin did not understand English, so imagine the fun they had trying to help him understand what was going on. They also had a family vacation in Pennsylvania and New York this summer. The weather there was drastically different, and jumping off boats into cold water was fun for all. Amanda, Jacob and Benjamin are completely American. They love playing outside. It is nice to have that freedom due to living in a small town. There are many available options for anyone interested in adopting. For more information regarding Russian adoption, go to http://russia.adoption. com/.

Chinese homes. Rice wine is homemade according to the family’s grandparents’ tradition and is often used to add flavor in cooking. Hard liquor is usually only found in bars. Many of the students said they missed homecooked food the most. They worry that the Caf food will be unhealthy to eat for a long period. Some are vegetarians, and vegans and have trouble finding appropriate options for them in the Caf. While they do like the rice and the salad bar in the Caf, they feel that the vegetables are overcooked and that the meat has too much salt. The

American chain restaurants they have in China include Burger King, KFC, Subway, Pizza Hut, McDonald’s, and Papa John’s, just to name a few. They also have Chinese chain restaurants, such as Real Kung Fu and Xu Liu Shan, which specializes in deserts and drinks. In big cities, there are a few drive-thrus and many places offer delivery. Where we have ketchup and mustard packets, they have pepper jam and bottles of garlic in China. Yingyu said that seafood is very popular in his hometown. They enjoy fish, shrimp, crab and lobster.

In China it is customary to serve hot water or tea to guests. They do not drink sweetened tea. Cho Xu said the dish she misses most from home is called hot pot. Hot pot contains hot water with an assortment of chicken, beef, duck, seafood, vegetables or potatoes. In China, it is not customary to eat cold vegetables; they will usually add hot water to their vegetables. Many of the students commented that they like American deserts. Many have also tried the food at China Dragon and they said they liked it. You can find beer, white wine, red wine and rice wine in

7 tips for eating on the cheap mary schellhammer

tip one: faster is not cheaper

tip four: dine in

While the value menu might be tempting, it is also possibly a leading cause of the freshmen 15. Try healthier options. When you do eat out, try a kids meal with fruit instead of fries, or opt for a salad.

a great way to save money. Ask family members to clip them for you or search the internet for coupons before your next shopping trip. Most manufacturers will send you coupons if you request via email. For the price of one frozen meal, you can feed yourself for 4-5 meals. Buying frozen foods in bulk and stretching the contents over a longer time period saves money. For example, try making a meal from scratch using larger bags of frozen veggies or boxes of pasta.

tip two: eat what your mama paid for

tip five: carb rich diets are not just for athletes

Pasta and rice is cheap, come in bulk and are versatile. Simply stock up on cheap sauce options (these can even be found at the Dollar Tree) and bulk store brand pasta, and you will have options! Also, check out the pasta and rice side items that come in paper packets in the grocery store. These usually contain at least 2 servings for only a dollar. Finally, don’t be afraid to be cliché: eat Ramen. Check out http://www.ramenlicious.com/ and get creative.

Eat as many of your meals as possible in the “Caf.” The meals are already paid for and will save you $5.00-$10.00 over a meal eaten elsewhere. Make the most of what you eat in the “Caf.” Sunday brunch in the “Caf” is one of the best meals in town as far as what your money will get you. Even if you are paying the $6.00 for the meal, you will easily eat your money’s worth.

tip three: drink cheaply

Understandably, most students don’t get excited about drinking Livingston’s tap water. Instead of buying bottled water, purchase a reusable water filter. Filters come in many styles now, including tap attachments, pitchers, and water bottles built-ins. Filters generally need to be replaced once every three months, saving you tons of money and preventing a landfill of used water bottles.

tip six: as my grandma always taught me never turn down free food

Most clubs and campus events that meet during dinner time serve at least some sort of food. Go crash a few events and fill your belly. Who knows? You might even learn something while you are there.

tip seven: couponing (as seen on T.V.)

You don’t have to get extreme about it. Afterall, where would you hoard your stock pile in a dorm room? However, using coupons on items you would buy anyway is

Did the Japanese Kill Any Civilians on the American Mainland? alan brown

Many Americans believe that the war with Japan, which commenced after the sneak attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941, was confined to the Paicifc Ocean. However, a desperate attempt by the Japanese to attack the American mainland toward the end of WWII with balloon bombs did result in the loss of a few civilian lives. On May 5,

1945, a thirteen-year-old girl on a church picnic near the town of Bly, Ore. spotted a balloon bomb hanging from a pine tree. Not knowing what it was, she attempted to pull the balloon out of the tree. The ballon bomb exploded, killing the girl, the minister’s wife, and four other children. See page 2 for the answer.

strange news . . .

Upcoming Events: A car accident in Vermont was the start of a wild afternoon chase and a showdown for police and firefighters who responded to the crash on Wednesday. A passenger in the vehicle allegedly brandished a 9mm handgun and tried to hijack a fire truck that responded to the scene in Lincoln. Trevor Burton, 30, climbed into the fire truck with his pit bull terrier, but firefighters persuaded him not to drive away. Burton surrendered the gun’s magazine and gave himself up without a fight, but his dog bit a fireman’s finger. While Burton created the standoff,

the driver of the wrecked vehicle, Michael Farnolo, 41, allegedly fled. He was tracked down a few miles away. Police charged Burton with driving under the influence, operation without owner’s consent and driving with a suspended license. Farnolo was booked for leaving the scene of an accident.

A grizzled, old farmer who had just delivered a load of cantaloupes to a local supermarket was speeding down the country road leading to his farm when he caught a glimpse of flashing red-and-blue lights in his rear-view mirror. Cursing under his breath, the farmer pulled off the raod and waited for the policeman to pull up behind him. The State Trooper walked up the farmer’s red pick-up truck and asked him to roll down his window. “Good afternoon, Sir. I clocked you going twenty-miles over the speed limit. I am afraid I am going to have to give you a citation.” While the trooper was writing out the ticket on the hood of the truck, a cloud of flies began hovering around his head. “Man, these flies are bad!” the trooper exclaimed. “Those are called circle flies,” the farmer said. “What are circle flies?” asked the trooper. The farmer replied, “Circle flies are those flies that fly in a circle around the rear end of a horse.” The trooper closed his ticket book and pointed his finger at the farmer, “Hey! Are you calling me a horse’s butt?” “No sir,” said the farmer. “But you know,” he added, smiling, “you can’t fool them circle flies.”
