UNC has been ranked as the No. 1 “best value” uni- versity for its affordability and quality of education.But Playboy Magazine has a different interpretationof how much bang students get for their buck.In Playboy Magazine’s recently released “Top 10Party Schools” rankings, UNC snagged the title of topuniversity sex life.“I was a little surprised that UNC came out No. 1 onthe overall rankings, but I’m glad after reading moreabout the University,” said Tyler Trykowski, editorialassistant at Playboy.Other universities named as honorable mentionsfor the quality of their sex life include Yale University,Georgetown University and the University of California at Los Angeles.Trykowski said Duke University ranked 25th in stu-dent sex life.Playboy editors ranked the top 100 universities inthe country using an internal point system based onseveral sources of public data, Trykowski said.He added that besides ranking party schools, themagazine also ranked individual categories, includingsex life, nightlife and sporting life.Playboy cited the high ratio of females to males,the attractiveness of UNC women and their “progres-sive” attitudes as the main factors contributing to theUniversity’s No. 1 ranking.“I didn’t know Playboy did research,” said sopho-more Marcus Smith.Jenifer Zanzonico, a health promotion specialist atUNC, said the criteria for the rankings seem subjective.

Towing ban onhold until 2013
By Holly West
Staff Writer
Chapel Hill won’t be enforcing a towing ordinance anytime soon.The town is in the process of appealing an August court decisionthat ruled the town’s towing ordi-nance invalid — a process that couldtake until early 2013.The town filed a motion for a temporary stay of the ruling, which would have allowed the towingordinance to be enforced until theappeals court reaches a decision. Butthe motion was denied by the courton Sept. 17.The ordinance — approved by the Chapel Hill Town CouncilFebruary — capped the amount tow-ing companies could charge for theirservices.It also increased the numberof signs towing companies wererequired to post and mandatedthey allow people to pay with creditcards.The law went into effect on May 1 — and was blocked by SuperiorCourt Judge Orlando Hudson a day later.The ordinance was challenged by George King, owner of George’sTowing & Recovery, who said it wasnot within the town’s power to regu-late towing.King’s attorney, Thomas Stark,said the ordinance was an uncon-stitutional attempt to regulatetrade.“The constitution is unequivo-cal on that point,” he said. “It really didn’t make a lot of sense for thetown of Chapel Hill to appeal this.If they wanted to change that policy,they would have to talk to a legisla-tor.”But Chapel Hill officials arguethat it is their duty to make laws thatprotect residents from predatory towing.“We believe towns have certainrights to protect our citizens,” saidtown councilman Gene Pease.“If there’s practices going onthat we believe puts our citizens indanger, we believe we have rights toregulate that.”But until the appeals court makesa decision on the ordinance — whichcould take months — the fate of towing in Chapel Hill remains influx. After the court receives argu-ments from both sides, it will decideif a hearing is needed.

Students deterred by the priceof MacBook repairs at the RAMShop in Student Stores might havea cheaper option off campus.On Monday, Sean Gartland,a UNC senior and former ITSemployee, opened up his own Appleservice center on Franklin Street. And Gartland said his ratesare much cheaper than the RAMShop’s.Located above East End Oyster& Martini Bar on Franklin Street,Gartland’s store, iCan Fix It, sharesa space with a tattoo parlor.“We’re just really trying to get itout now — our parts are top of theline, we’re convenient and we’re com-petitive with pricing,” Gartland said.“I try to have lower prices by 20to 30 percent,” Gartland added.The RAM Shop is the primary on-campus option for students torepair their computers that are notpurchased through the Carolina Computing Initiative.Before opening iCan Fix It,Gartland spent two and a half years working for ITS, he said.His store provides more than just laptop repairs — the main ser- vice is phone repairs, largely fixingcracked screens.The RAM Shop does not servicephones, but instead sends brokenphones to Apple, which then offersits standard prices.“Having worked at ITS for solong, I realized how much morelucrative the mobile market is,”Gartland said.He said he faces no mobile ser- vice repair competition in the localcommunity.“I believe we are the only legiti-mate business offering these ser- vices in Chapel Hill, definitely onFranklin Street,” Gartland said.Gartland added that his goal isnot to draw business away from theRAM Shop, but to give students a different choice that offers reason-able prices.But the introduction of Macs tothe CCI program has significantly increased the RAM Shop’s busi-ness, said Lee Merritt, tech supportspecialist at the RAM Shop.“We’re swamped right now. Our business has continued to rise overthe past two years,” Merritt said.The RAM Shop is increasing itsstaff size to manage this increase in

 With funding coming in from variousparts of the community, the Inter-FaithCouncil for Social Service is one stepcloser to building its new shelter.The council announced Monday it hasreceived $700,000 for the new homelessshelter from the North Carolina HousingFinance Agency and from the town of Chapel Hill.The funds will go toward a $5.6 mil-lion facility to rehabilitate homeless menin the area. The shelter will be located at1315 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.UNC has leased the site to the council, whose shelter program has served thecommunity for 27 years.Chris Moran, executive director of thecouncil, said it has been working on secur-ing the funds for quite some time.“The most important part of thisallocation is a signal to the community that another funding agency has givenus money and we have more to raise,” hesaid.The agency will contribute $600,000to the project — the highest possibleaward — as a deferred loan, so long as thenew facility keeps to its original purpose.Mary Reca Todd, the agency’s spokes- woman, said it is honored to help out withthe development.“We will maintain a long-term relation-ship with them for the life of the project,”she said.Chapel Hill’s Community DevelopmentBlock Grant Program is providing another$100,000 for the shelter.Loryn Clark, neighborhood and com-munity services manager for Chapel Hill,said the grant was approved by the TownCouncil in April — about one month before the project’s special-use permit wasapproved.Clark said the program, which receives$450,000 annually, is federally fundedand is not included in the town’s budget.In June, the Town Council approvedthe IFC’s Good Neighbor Plan, whichseeks to address concerns about the shel-

Marianne Gingher, a UNC English professor, holds handmade puppets from the Jabberbox Puppets Theater production “Rumpus in Rome.
By Elizabeth Tew
Staff Writer
Even puppets need to have a raunchy time. And they’ll have it today at The ArtsCenter in Carrboro when JabberboxPuppet Theater presents its production of “Rumpus in Rome.”Marianne Gingher, an English professorat UNC, and her friend of 38 years, DeborahSeabrooke, created Jabberbox in 2009.It all began with their trip to Africa to visitGingher’s son. On the plane ride, the friendsamused themselves by creating the now-pop-ular characters of Fuzzy and Beej.“We wanted to write about that adventureand thought using puppets would be fun,”Gingher said. While Gingher said she has always lovedpuppets and storytelling, it is Seabrooke wholikes to act in plays.“I used to put on plays in my basement as a little girl,” Seabrooke said.The two had a lot to learn, Gingher said,so they went to the national Puppeteers of  America Convention in Atlanta.“We took some workshops and realizedthat the play we had written was not a puppetplay,” Gingher said. “So we left depressed — but it taught us a lot.” With the success of their first production in2010 of “African Queens,” the duo has seen itsfan base expand.“I have to pinch myself,” Seabrooke said.“It’s very exciting.Their latest production, “Rumpus inRome,” reintroduces fans to Fuzzy and Beej— this time in Rome. Fuzzy, the Americanambassador to Rome, invites Beej to helpplan a ball for Queen Elizabeth II during herDiamond Jubilee.“We thought Rome would be fun becauseit’s sort of a city of love,” Gingher said.“Essentially, everybody in this play is look-ing for love and having difficulty being withthe person they love.”Gingher and Seabrooke make the puppetsusing paper-mache and acrylic paint for theheads.“We have great fun going to a fabric storeand envisioning how we will dress them,”Gingher said.She said Jabberbox shows are for adults— even touting some puppet nudity. Ginghersaid previous plays have not had as muchpuppet nudity as “Rumpus in Rome.”

 Navigating a tough economy hasforced workers in the business worldto delay a once common long-terminvestment — heading back to school.Demand for traditional two-yearmasters in business administration(MBA) programs has been largely onthe decline nationally, according to the2012 Application Trends Survey con-ducted by the Graduate Management Admission Council. At UNC’s Kenan-Flagler BusinessSchool, admissions to its full-timeMBA program have fallen by 8.5percent this year. This trend reflectsseveral years of declining applicationsnationwide.The decline in applications is widely attributed to concern about the highly competitive, unstable job market.Some students, such as 2011Kenan-Flagler graduate Elizabeth Ann Ashley, have concerns aboutfalling behind in the job market by taking time off to get a postgraduatedegree.Bob Moffat, senior channel mar-keting manager at Rubbermaid andan evening MBA student at Emory University’s Goizueta Business School,said a job isn’t guaranteed in today’s business world.“It’s a competitive job market — lesshiring is taking place,” Moffat said.“It’s truly not a short-term game.” Amy Wittmayer, director of theMBA Career Management Centerat Kenan-Flagler, said the economicclimate has made the job search forMBA graduates more challenging.“Challenges remain in the broaderemployment arena, where newly minted MBAs are competing with thelarger labor pool of experienced work-ers,” she said in an email.Sherry Wallace, director of MBA admissions at Kenan-Flagler, said inan email that the quality of admittedapplicants hasn’t decreased, and theschool is working to meet the chal-lenges of a smaller applicant pool.“We have added more recruitingevents within the United States toattract more domestic candidates,” Wallace said. “We have increased thenumber of receptions we host that bring together alumni with prospec-tive applicants.Despite the nationally decliningnumber of full-time MBA programapplicants, the business world still views the degree as an important toolfor career advancement. Ashley, who works as a sales rep-resentative at Newell Rubbermaid, isconsidering seeking an MBA.“Eventually, but not with my cur-rent job,” she said. “I feel like a lot of the people I work with have gone back a little later in their career.She said the potential payoff of get-ting an MBA would be worth the risk:“There’s a lot of opportunities to movefurther in a career with an MBA.”Moffat, a 2005 UNC political sci-ence graduate, said an MBA repre-sents a long-term commitment.“Those who are going back (toschool) and seeking an MBA are say-ing that they believe in investing inthemselves and in their long-termgrowth,” Moffat said.“It comes down to if they have belief in themselves — investing in their per-sonal brand, so to speak. If not, thenit’s obviously not worth the dedication,time and financial sacrifice.”

traffic, and Merritt said he wasn’tconcerned about competition. At the RAM Shop, a hard drivereplacement will cost roughly $250to $300. But Gartland said he willcharge $90 to $200 for the samereplacement. A 13-inch laptop screen replace-ment at the RAM Shop would costabout $600, and a 15-inch replace-ment would cost $700 to $800. At iCan Fix It, each would cost$560 and $625, respectively,Gartland said.Junior Amir Vig said if he was inneed of a phone repair, he would goto iCan Fix It over the RAM Shop.“I would choose the lowest avail-able price,” he said.

“We’re trying to give adult audiences theopportunity to be frivolous and let their guarddown and laugh at stupid stuff,” she said.Jeri Lynn Schulke, stage director at The ArtsCenter, said she always enjoys the less con- ventional forms of art like Jabberbox shows.“We don’t limit ourselves as far as theater isconcerned,” she said. “We try to present a vastrange of performance styles and opportunitiesnot only for people performing, but for ourcommunity.”Both women said puppetry can teachimportant lessons — while still entertaining.“It’s about starting small and being small,”Seabrooke said.“And there’s nothing wrong with beingsmall. Small can turn out to be something very  big.”
