Long before the N.C. General Assembly finalized a new state budget last month,higher education leaders knew two more years of tight finances would be on thehorizon.The UNC system has seen nearly half  billion dollars erased from its state fundingsince 2011, including about $65 million infresh cuts in the 2013-14 budget.Charlie Perusse, the UNC system’s chief operating officer, said chancellors were warned months ago to prepare for a cut of 3to 5 percent — but the implications of a fifth-straight year of budget cuts remain to be seen.Smaller schools like Elizabeth City StateUniversity, which will see its $35 million budget slashed by nearly 10 percent, couldfeel the brunt of the burden, Perusse said.UNC-CH will take a 5.5 percent cutof $28 million — including a $15 millionreduction for the UNC School of Medicine.“UNC-CH took a pretty big percentage, but they’ll be able to manage,” Perusse said.“For a little school like Elizabeth City State,10 percent is tough.Jim Dean, UNC-CH executive vice chan-cellor and provost, said the lack of financesto support faculty is one of his chief con-cerns. The budget did not include raises forUNC-system employees.“In the last year, we’ve lost more faculty than we’ve been able to keep,” Dean said.System leaders have said they don’t wantto shift more financial pressure onto stu-dents — President Tom Ross announcedearlier this month he’d recommend a tuition freeze for in-state students next yearafter a decade of increases.But the budget included a tuition hike in

The Carolina Union ActivitiesBoard officially announced Sunday that rap artist Wale will be perform-ing at the fall 2013 HomecomingConcert with Ace Hood opening.Lauren Sacks, adviser to CUABand assistant director of studentlearning, said the committee chosethe performer after the most expan-sive student input polls it has evercompleted. CUAB used Facebook,Twitter and large white boards withmarkers attached in the first andsecond floors of the Union askingstudents who they wanted to see forHomecoming to generate studentfeedback.“It’s a tricky spot because the art-ists who garner the most supportmight be Beyonce, but Beyonce doescost half a million dollars, so we trto garner as much information fromstudents as we can without settingunreasonable expectations,” Sackssaid.Sacks said CUAB took a tally of the votes accrued by each popularartist, and then decided if the artist would be feasible for Homecoming.She said though the performers forthis and last year’s concerts were both rap or hip-hop artists, that thedecision was not purposefully made by the board.“Two things influenced the choiceof the artists: One was based onstudent feedback — so a lot of theartists that we heard about were inthe hip-hop and rap genre. Secondly,it happens that artists in that genreare within budgetary feasibility,Sacks said.Khalani James, special eventscoordinator for CUAB, agreed thatstudent feedback was critical toplanning this year’s concert. Hesaid the board was also consideringMacklemore, A$AP Rocky, Big Sean,Childish Gambino, The Lumineersand Avicii.He said CUAB sent offers toMacklemore and Wale, but theformer performer was unavailable.The other performers they were con-sidering were either out of CUAB’s budget, or they were already bookedfor other events. So overall, Jamessaid he is very happy with CUAB’schoice.“I think that the fact that he’sfrom a nearby area that’s promi-nently represented at UNC — the

Senior Kevin Claybren has spent two yearsadvocating for gender-neutral housing atUNC-CH.Last fall, his goal was finally realized whenthe UNC Board of Trustees unanimously approved a gender-neutral pilot program with spaces for 32 students.But on Aug. 9, the UNC Board of Governorsoverturned the housing option for all 17 UNC-system schools, before the plan ever took off.“It’s sad because the UNC Board of Trusteessaw all the work that was done, all the pre-sentations, and had an opportunity to hearfrom students,” Claybren said. “If you’re on theBOG, you haven’t heard what students wantand the reality.The four UNC-CH students who plannedto live in gender-neutral housing have now  been placed in on-campus or off-campushousing, said Larry Hicks, director of hous-ing and residential education.Housing also worked to ensure the students would still have a safe place to live, said TerriPhoenix, director of UNC’s LGBTQ Center.Claybren said he planned to live in gender-neutral housing.“Having the decision made two weeks before school limited my options and Icouldn’t look at off-campus options,” he said.In November, 2,807 UNC-CH studentssigned a petition in favor of gender-neutralhousing. Other UNC-system schools, includingUNC-Asheville and UNC-Charlotte, also con-sidered the option.But this isn’t the first time the program hascome under fire statewide.Before the board’s decision, an N.C. Senate bill in April sought to ban gender-neutral hous-ing at UNC-system schools, and legislatorsdiscussed a provision in an N.C. Senate budgetproposal to eliminate UNC-CH’s program.The housing debate formed amid concernsthat gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgenderstudents are bullied in residence halls.But board members say that taxpayer dol-lars can be spent to make all students feelsafe on campus through other methods.“The board believes there are more practical ways to achieve that goal than assigning youngmen and women to the same campus suite,”said Peter Hans, chairman of the board.Hans said campuses could instead createoutreach programs for LGBT students.Leading up to the vote, board membersalso said that the program could distractfrom academic issues.Tami Fitzgerald, executive director of theNorth Carolina Values Coalition, said in a let-ter to the board that a gender-neutral hous-ing program could increase sexual assault

The University’s Sexual AssaultTask Force will continue rewritesof the Honor Code this fall —despite its original goal to haverecommendations ready by thetime students returned to school.The 21-member committee was commissioned by formerChancellor Holden Thorp to exam-ine the section of the Honor Codedealing with student-on-studentcomplaints of sexual violence.His actions came after a fed-eral complaint was filed with theDepartment of Education claimingthe University underreported casesof sexual assault.In June, Christi Hurt , interimTitle IX coordinator and chairwom-an of the task force, said the grouphoped to deliver its recommenda -tions to Chancellor Carol Folt by the beginning of the semester.But Hurt said they were unableto finish the recommendations because members were adamantthat they wanted to completely rewrite the section of the HonorCode that addresses sexual assault.“The group was very clear thatthey wanted to create somethingthat was UNC-specific,” she said.The group will meet on Aug. 26, but Hurt said there is no set sched-ule for future meetings after that.She said the task force hasalready clarified the language of the policy and rewritten the sectionon the process of how a complaintis filed. Now members are lookingat who should sit on the panel to judge those cases, Hurt said.“That’s the lion’s share of our work,” Hurt said.UNC moved sexual assault outof the jurisdiction of the HonorCourt effective Aug. 1, 2012 tocomply with federal mandates.Deputy Title IX Coordinator Ew Quimbaya-Winship, a member of the task force, led discussions aboutthe current system this summer.He said he was surprised at thegroup’s commitment to sharing theinformation they learned with thecommunity.“There’s been a full vetting of theconcerns and issues,” Quimbaya- Winship said. “We’re workingreally hard to get it right.”Sarah-Kathryn Bryan, anundergraduate student servingon the task force, said she wouldinitiate conversation by answeringstudents’ questions about sexual violence around campus.She said members were

If only someone could’ve suedRobin Thicke, Pharrell and T.I. beforethe release of “Blurred Lines,” so the radio wouldn’t play it every four minutes.But alas, the artists are pre-emptively suing Marvin Gaye’s children over a threatened lawsuit regarding copyright of the song which pays homage to Gaye.

“All the letters in ‘finer notin jeans’ is (an anagram) for Jennifer Aniston. It’s like a premonition for yourrole.”— Chris Stark, a BBC Radio 1 personal-ity, to Jennifer Aniston in another cringe- worthy interview after a viral encounter with Mila Kunis.
T
he answer to a larger postgrad paycheck may not be that sec-ond major or an additional resume-building extracurricular, but instead just more sex, apparently. A recent study out of the carnal-loving country of Germany (another survey hasshown Germans have more satisfying sex — something has got to be intheir bratwurst) found that people who do the dirty more than four timesa week nab a 3.2-percent higher paycheck than those who have sex oncea week. So, if the only action you get is from the phone vibrating in your back pocket, what does that mean for your salary-earning potential? Justasking for a friend here. Lesson to be learned: If you haven’t seen muchaction recently, you’re screwed — except not literally. Sorry about that.

BRIEF
By Sarah Chaney
Staff Writer
The University is spendingapproximately $3 million on a new  Wi-Fi system that would gradually reduce the need for ethernet cordsin campus housing by fall 2014.The project, launched in May,is a collaborative effort betweenInformation Technology Services,the Department of Housing andResidential Education, the ResidenceHall Association and ResNet.“My community director toldme that surveys had to be changedfrom, ‘What improvements would you like to see in residence halls?’ to‘What, besides Wi-Fi, would you liketo see in residence halls?’” said RHA President Kendall Nicosia-Rusin , who lived in Cobb last year and ledthe initiative.Hinton James, Craige,Ehringhaus, Horton, Koury, CraigeNorth, Hardin and Morrison resi-dence halls are scheduled to have Wi-Fi by Tuesday.“We had been pushing it for a  while but didn’t have the money,said Larry Hicks, director of housingand residential education.The choice to start with SouthCampus residence halls was basedon a prioritized schedule. The high-rise dorms were the most difficult toinstall with Wi-Fi, Hicks said.“We didn’t choose the low-hang-ing fruit first,” Hicks said.Chris Kielt, vice chancellor forinformation technology, said the proj-ect will be funded by the University Priorities and Budget Committee.Kielt, who started his positionin July, said installing campuswide Wi-Fi was his goal from day one.Residence halls that requiremore significant changes in wiringand structure, including Kenan, Alderman, McIver, Spencer, OldEast and Old West, will not have the Wi-Fi until next year.Kielt said Baity Hill and Ram Village will be more challenging toinstall with Wi-Fi, and it may not beoffered there until spring 2015.The $3-million price tag for theproject is on-campus residents’ mainconcern, Nicosia-Rusin said.“Students primarily own laptopsand don’t work exclusively in oneplace in their room,” Nicosia-Rusinsaid. “They also have iPods, tabletsand other forms of technology thatdon’t allow for ethernet connec-tions.”Christina Campbell , a junior biology and psychology major, saidnot having Wi-Fi in her dorm roomfor two years was a burden.“It was extremely frustrating because anytime I wanted to doanything school-related in the room,I had to be connected to the wall,”Campbell said.Campbell said the organizationsat UNC took measures to minimizethe project’s cost.“The school did a good job of ensuring it wasn’t wasting money  by using more ports and things thannecessary.”

For months, parking in the Northside neighbor-hood has been a source of stress for landlords andtenants. And now, it's the subject of the lawsuit.In September, an ordinance went into effect thatset a four-car maximum for parking at homes in theNorthside neighborhood — a primarily low-incomearea between Columbia and Lloyd streets. The ordi-nance was adopted by the Chapel Hill Town Councilin response to the growing student population in thehistorically African-American neighborhood. After fielding complaints from residents, Mark Patmore and William Gartland, who both own rentalproperties on Brooks Street in Northside, sued the townof Chapel Hill in November over the ordinance.Nicholas Herman, the attorney representing thelandlords, said the case is currently before the NorthCarolina Court of Appeals.The landlords have asked the court to declare theregulations unlawful and void, and to forbid furtherenforcement of the ordinance.Ethan Kavanaugh, a Northside resident and UNCsenior, said after the ordinance passed, he and hisfour housemates struggled to follow the guidelineslaid out by the town council.“We had space in our driveway to fit more thanfour cars in our driveway — we had five people withcars in our house,” he said.“It was annoying because if there were already fourcars in the driveway, we had to go find street parkingand walk back to the house.Herman said his clients think the ordinance isunconstitutional because it exceeds the power givento municipalities by the state legislature.“The General Assembly has specific statutes thatgive cities certain powers to regulate. One of thepowers deals with parking. That statute talks aboutparking in all kinds of different contexts, but does notallow what they’re doing,” Herman explained.“If the legislature said you could do it, you could.But Chapel Hill doesn’t have the authority to do this.”Neither Gartland nor Patmore returned multiplecalls for comment.Under the new ordinances, landlords can becharged up to $100 a day for parking violations com-mitted by renters.Between September and October, Patmore andGarland each received separate notices of parking violations by tenants on their properties, carryingpenalties of $100 for each landlord.Herman said the plaintiffs also feel the way thetown enforces the ordinance is unfair.Patmore and Gartland had no idea their tenants were in violation of the parking ordinances and nei-ther landlord has control over whether their tenantsfollow the regulations, according to the lawsuit.“We say that enforcement method of citing theowner is unconstitutional,” Herman said. “How can you hold someone to a violation when they had noth-ing to do with violating anything?”

 Aspiring emcees and music culturistsalike will now have the chance to practiceand appreciate the craft in the classroom.Music 286, called Music as Culture, orEmcee Lab, is being offered for the firsttime at UNC this fall. The idea for theclass came from music department chair-man Mark Katz.Katz said the inspiration for the classcame from a hypothetical “Carolina Beat Academy,” a beat-focused music programhe created for a class project in an artsentrepreneurship class he taught.“It’s kind of coming true, which isreally amazing to see. I’ve taught — andcontinue to teach — a class called BeatMaking Lab, as well as DJing and a classcalled Rock Lab, which is where studentscome together and form bands and put ona show at the end of the semester,” Katzsaid.“So one of the missing pieces was rap.”Katz asked Pierce Freelon, a musicprofessor at UNC, to develop the sylla- bus for the class in the same style as theBeat Making Lab, which Freelon already teaches.“Emceeing, with your voice as aninstrument, hasn’t been offered yet,” saidFreelon, who stressed the importance of distinguishing between emceeing andrapping.“With an emcee, there’s a lot more to it,and a lot more than just knowing how torhyme words.”The class is much more than just learn-ing how to emcee, though, Freelon said.“I hope (students) take away a sense of the extent to which rap music — and what you hear on the radio — is really just a sliver of hip-hop culture,” he said.“Emceeing is something much morerobust, and hip-hop is a lot more robustthan any genre on your iTunes playlist.Sophomore Jeremy Kleiman, whotook the Beat Making Lab class withFreelon over the summer, said he really enjoyed the contemporary structure of the course.“It’s a nontraditional music class with a focus on a more modern music form thanthe more academic class compositionstuff that exists, especially with the BeatMaking Lab,” he said.James Livingston, also known as“Median,” is a practicing emcee in theDurham area. He will be co-teaching theclass with Freelon.“Basically, we’re teaching students how to analytically observe hip-hop, in addi-tion to how to practice it,” Livingston said.“Hip-hop came as a response to a setof conditions America was in at the timein the early to mid-’70s, and it’s some-thing that continues throughout thetradition as a way to give a voice to the voiceless.”Livingston also said the course hasthings to offer for all students, even those who aren’t music majors.“It’s about empowering yourself,” hesaid.“And that’s something that a personcan take from the class even if they’re notinterested in being an emcee as a profes-sional goal.”

Mediterranean Deli, one of Chapel Hill’s healthiest staples, will make its return to LenoirMainstreet today after a year-long hiatus.Jamil Kadoura, owner of Med Deli, said they were askedto return to campus by Carolina Dining Services because theGreek diet would be an alterna-tive to the typical fast food inthe dining hall.“The quality and the healthof our food, that’s why we’llsucceed,” he said.The restaurant will be takingthe area that was previously usedas the pizza station. The pizza station will be moved to LenoirMainstreet’s self-serve section.Kadoura said the new loca -tion is a great opportunity anda better option than the spacethey shared with Subway two years ago, where they wereunable to serve their full menu.“If we want to do it, we wantto be who we are,” he said. “Lasttime it was like a half-deli,a quarter-deli. This time it’sgoing to be the full thing.”The restaurant will also use biodegradable and sustainablematerials such as wheat forfood containers, Kadoura said. And while the new location will be more expensive to oper-ate, Kadoura said he believesthe restaurant will succeed.“I think we will because we’ve been in Chapel Hill for26 years — we’re almost a household name.”Scott Myers , director of foodand vending for CDS, said CDSasked Med Deli to return toLenoir Mainstreet as part of aneffort this summer to offer a bet-ter on-campus eating experience.In addition to bringing back Med Deli, CDS also redesignedCafe McColl in the Kenan-Flagler Business School and thehot bar in Lenoir Mainstreet.“Our main goal is to getmore satisfaction out of thatarea, and that usually equatesto more sales,” Myers said.Med Deli will be open forlunch Monday through Friday.International masters stu-dent Yifan Liu said she appre-ciated the effort to bring anorganic option to campus.She said she eats on campusoften, but would prefer a non- American dining option.“All the fast food turns meoff from the restaurants —there’s too much cheese.Freshman Sarah Brooks,a Chapel Hill native, said shefrequents the Med Deli onFranklin Street because of thequality of the food.In the few days she’s been oncampus, Brooks said she haschosen healthier alternatives.“Sometimes that’s why Idon’t eat in (the dining halls)— I have healthier food in my dorm,” she said.
