Despite nationwide financial woes, UNCcontinues to flex its muscles as a majorresearch institution.The University announced Thursday thatit received $803 million in research fundingduring the 2010 fiscal year, up 12 percent fromthe $716 million it received last year. The $87million increase marks the 14th consecutive year research funding has increased at UNC.For some administrators, that trend’sperseverance — even through times of eco-nomic struggle — has not been surprising.“While I have worked here, we havealways increased,” said Kelly Musty, direc-tor of awards management for the Office of Sponsored Research.The UNC School of Medicine led alldepartments with $424.3 million, whichaccounted for about 53 percent of the totalfunding. The Lineberger ComprehensiveCancer Center was the highest individualrecipient with $60.6 million.The University receives grants from bothgovernment and privates sources, and mostfunding comes from the federally-fundedNational Institutes of Health.In addition to that source, this year UNCcapitalized on the American Recovery andReinvestment Act, also known as the stimu-lus bill. The University obtained $126 mil-lion from the stimulus package.Though that injection of federal funds itself surpassed the total increase from last year’sfunding, officials said it is difficult to deter-mine whether the same level of funding wouldhave been possible without the stimulus.“There’s absolutely nothing guaranteedin research funding,” said Barbara Entwisle,interim vice chancellor for research andeconomic development. “What’s difficult toimagine is what we would’ve gotten in theabsence of stimulus funding, since many of those grants may have come from othersources even without the stimulus money.The better and more brilliant the univer-sity, the better it will be at attracting fund-ing.”Entwisle added that there are some wor-ries for next year with the absence of stimu-lus funding.Even though the University has been suc-cessful in obtaining research funding, it stillfaces large and impending budget cuts fromthe General Assembly.Kim Monahan, a cancer researcher with theLineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center, isa SPIRE postdoctoral fellow. Since the SPIREprogram is fully funded by federal grants, shesaid she does not have to worry about budgetcuts and can focus solely on her work.“The research atmosphere at UNC is very collaborative, very forward thinking,”she said. “I think that environment sets youup to be very creative and do well on grantapplications.”Undergraduate research is another area of research at UNC that has not been severely affected by budget cuts, said Pat Pukkila,director of the Office for UndergraduateResearch.She said undergraduate research occa-sionally gets its own grants, but that mostof it is funded by money that trickles downfrom grants faculty members receive.
 Within 24 hours, more than2,000 students have voiced theiropinions on the future of the stu-dent ticketing policy for men’s bas-ketball games.On Monday, the Carolina Athletic Association launched an online survey to gauge the student body’s opinion.The survey, which follows thefrequently criticized one-ticket-per-student policy of last year, closes at11:59 p.m. Sept. 30.CAA President Brandon Finch, who serves as the voice for the stu-dent population to the ticketingoffice, said the survey will be his way of listening to students.“We’re giving students the option tohelp determine what they would like tosee,” said Finch, who included the ideafor a survey in his election platform.Clinton Gwaltney, associate ath-letic director for the Smith Centerand ticket operations, said this will be the first time a survey has been

UNC-system schools raked in morefederal funding for research than ever before — thanks in part to the reces-sion.Funding for research systemwidereached $1.4 billion this year, anincrease of more than 16 percent fromlast year.Most of that money came from theNational Institutes of Health and is goingtoward medical research.“As devastating as this recession is, itdoes allow us — or force us — to take alook at things we wouldn’t pay as muchattention to,” said N.C. Rep. Tony Foriest,D-Alamance, co-chairman of the N.C.Senate’s higher education committee.Foriest said the state has been trying todirect money to research as a way of get-ting out of the recession.The UNC system received $22 mil-lion for science and research equipmentfrom the state legislature this year. Themoney is supposed to help make univer-sities more competitive for future federalgrants.The state legislature cut the sys-tem’s budget by $70 million, but gavean unprecedented amount for updatingresearch equipment and facilities.Steven Leath, vice president for researchfor the UNC system, said he hasn’t seensuch a strong focus on scientific advance-ments since the space race in the 1950sand 60s.“The current administration has decid-ed that for the economy to fully recover,it needed to fund research for new ideasand new products to create new jobs,”Leath said.He said the schools’ investment infacilities and equipment factored intoresearchers’ competitiveness and success with grants.“We got more than our fair share,” Leathsaid.U.S. Rep. David Price, who has beenpushing for federal funds to go to UNC-system schools, said investments in inno- vative research and development proj-ects were a crucial part of the AmericanRecovery and Reinvestment Act.“Our local research institutions — andUNC-CH in particular — had competi-tive lab-ready research projects that wereable to get up and running quickly withthe help of federal funds,” Price said in ane-mail through an assistant.

Butch Davis couldn’t help butlaugh when asked Monday if histeam would be as good if his recruitshad to be as strong in the classroomas they are on the field.The head coach’s laughter fadedquickly and somewhat uncomfort-ably before he weaved through ananswer on the value of academics.So far, most faculty get the joke.To compete at UNC’s level in foot- ball requires accepting that the best players aren’t always the beststudents, they said.In interviews, faculty said they support athletics and student-ath-letes but dislike that a sports teamhas now called the University’s aca-demic integrity into question.“The immediate reaction is, ‘Ohmy goodness, the University is introuble because of the footballteam,’” pathology professor CharlesBagnell said. Without condoning the allegedimproper conduct with agents — what brought NCAA investigatorsto UNC — faculty express signifi-cantly more alarm over the aca-demic side of the investigation.“I’m certainly very disappointedto hear about this being part of theinvestigation,” business professor Wendell Gilland said. Another professor, history depart-ment chairman Lloyd Kramer, saidcolleagues find themselves having todefend the school or endure ribbingfrom their peers at conferences.“You know how people are,” hesaid. “They say ‘Oh what’s going onover at Carolina?’“People are concerned that itcasts the University in a negativelight, and anyone who represents theUniversity is put in the position of having to explain or deal with this.”

 When they questionedChancellor Holden Thorp at lastFriday’s Faculty Council meeting,professors brought up two mainconcerns: Is football success com-ing at the expense of academics,and are athletic salaries fair?“There is a connection betweenaspiring to be a top-10 football pro-gram in the country and the prob-lems you’ve encountered here,”microbiology professor StevenBachenheimer said then.Bagnell reiterated the concern, but said he sees benefits as well.The program keeps alumni invested

She added that the number of undergrad-uates leaving UNC with research experienceincreased by five percent last year, to 62 per-cent, after being stable for several years.“We are a research university, but the feel-ing in the air is that everybody can get in onit,” she said. “Students are starting earlier,they’re not holding back. They see they canthink on their own.”

ometimes cars get stolen and stripped, but this might be the first time some-one stripped before stealing the car. According to Covington, La. police, Jennifer Gille hailed a cab at a motel andtold the driver to take her to another address near town. Upon arriving at thedestination, she refused to get out of the car and told the driver she wanted to be takento Michigan. When the cabbie refused to take the trip, Gille took her clothes off to try toconvince him otherwise. The driver went to a police station to ask for help, but when hedid, cops say the naked woman jumped into the front seat of the cab and sped off.Officers reportedly spotted the taxi parked about a block from the police stationand found Gille naked in the back seat. She has been charged with unauthorizeduse of a movable and obscenity.

DJ Khaled’s “All I Do is Win” blaredthrough the speakers of East Chapel HillHigh School’s stadium as the varsity footballteam lined up for passing drills. At first glance, most people wouldn’t knowUNC head football coach Butch Davis’ son,Drew Davis, is the quarterback of the team.“The only people that treat him differ-ently are the media,” said the Wildcats’ topreceiver Alex Moore. “Drew gets no specialtreatment.”Drew Davis, a high school junior, said he began playing football in first grade and has been around the game his entire life.“It has given me a different lifestyle,” saidthe 17-year-old. “Football is 365 days a yearfor me. It’s everywhere I go.” Wildcats coach Bill Renner said DrewDavis’ life experience is a huge advantage inthe game.Renner became coach of the team this year after moving to the area from Virginia, where he was the winningest coach at two of the three high schools where he worked.“When you are a young person like that, being around the game helps you matureso that situations don’t bother you,” Rennersaid.“He has been around pros his whole life,so he is not intimidated by big players.Coincidentally, Butch Davis coachesRenner’s son, UNC quarterback BrynRenner. The Wildcats coach said he and his wife moved to the area in order to be closerto their son, a redshirt freshman.“The proximity to see my son play and thelocation is a blessing,” Bill Renner said.Bill Renner and Moore said Drew Davisis a natural team leader.“He is extremely active as a passer, very athletic, very accurate and very smart,”Moore said. “Drew has been around thegame for a long time and is a good leader.Drew Davis said his father, who playedfootball himself, is very supportive of hispassion.“He just lets me do my own thing andgives me advice when I ask questions.”Bill Renner said it has been interestingcoaching the young quarterback after meet-ing his father.“I think it is a pretty cool thing,” he said.“I got to meet Drew during the recruitingprocess, and he is a great kid.“I am really excited to coach him.”This is a rebuilding year for the Wildcats,Bill Renner said. The team has failed to win more than one game in a season since2004.The team won this year’s opening game but has lost its last three.Drew Davis said he leads the team intouchdown passes and total yards. His goalfor the year is to make the playoffs.“Even in the first seven weeks, he hasimproved mechanically and mentally,”Renner said. “I think he has a lot of potentialto become a great quarterback.Davis said he wants to continue footballin college but hasn’t decided if he will play for UNC.“I’m not sure about that yet, but I’ll decide when the time comes.”

The last time Republicans heldthe majority in the N.C. Senate, William McKinley was presidentand Wilmington was the state’s biggest city.This year, Republicans mightregain the majority, which Democratshave held since 1898, and control theprocess of re-drawing the state’s vot-ing districts — a power that couldgive them the political advantagefor the next 10 years.“It’s a huge opportunity for who-ever is in power,” said Bob Hall,executive director for Democracy NC. “It’s one of the reasons thiselection is so hotly contested.”Every 10 years, following the U.S.Census, the N.C. General Assembly re-draws district lines according tothe census’ new population num- bers. In doing so, the ruling party can draw the lines in ways thatmake it difficult for the opposingparty to win seats, Hall said.The U.S. Supreme Court has notstruck down redistricting for par-tisan purposes, often called gerry-mandering.“As we’ve seen with gerryman-dering, whoever draws the linessets who gets elected for the next10 years,” said Chris Hayes, seniorlegislative analyst for the politicalthink tank John W. Pope CivitasInstitute. “This is the best chanceRepublicans have had in decades,and it’s looking highly likely.”Population growth statewide inthe last decade has been focusedaround urban areas, especially Raleigh and Charlotte, Hayes said.That means the redistrictingmight cause these urban areas togain seats while the state’s ruralareas could lose them.The battle for seats in the statelegislature and control of theredistricting process tightenedthis year with a rising Republicantide nationwide and controversiessurrounding several incumbentDemocrats in the southeasternpart of the state, Hayes said.The N.C. Republican Party hadapproximately $100,000 more onhand than the Democratic Party inJune, which could boost GOP can-didates’ election prospects.“North Carolina is reflecting what the nation is reflecting,” saidSen. Ellie Kinnaird, D-Orange.“There’s a great deal of uncertainty people have toward who’s repre-senting them.”Earlier this month, Raleigh- based Public Policy Polling foundthat voters plan to vote Republicanin the elections by a 49 to 41 per-cent margin.To earn the majority, Republicans will need to win six seats they cur-rently don’t have now, said Sen.Josh Stein, D-Wake.“That’s a really tough task,” Steinsaid. “But there’s no question they feel better about their chances thanthey have felt in a very long time.”For Democrats to maintain themajority, they’ll need the support of  young voters, like UNC students, toshow up to the polls, Kinnaird said.“The polls show that the 18-26 year old vote that was so active inthe 2008 election isn’t as interestedthis time,” she said. “That concernsus.”But on campus, awareness of the state and local elections isn’t ashigh as in 2008, said UNC seniorLuxman Srikantha.“It’s died down. I haven’t seenany of that this year.”

Gone, or at least diminished, arethe days of hustled football ticketsales and students sneaking theirnon-UNC friends into games with borrowed One Cards. A new policy announced Monday  by the UNC Athletic Ticket Office will allow students to purchase guestpasses for football games online. Thepasses for those games became avail-able for purchase Monday. Passesfor the East Carolina University andN.C. State University games will beavailable beginning the Monday  before those games.For $50 — the full generaladmission ticket price — non-UNC students can now purchasepasses to the student section forany football game not included inthe lottery.If a student does buy these tick-ets, the student will be seated nextto his or her guest or guests.The ticket office collaborat-ed with the Carolina Athletic Association to determine the pol-icy, which was unveiled in a cam-puswide e-mail.“I think having it online isgoing to be easier for students,”said Carolina Athletic AssociationPresident Brandon Finch.Guest passes have previously beenavailable through the ticketing office, but this is the first time they will besold online, said Clint Gwaltney,associate athletic director for theSmith Center and ticket operations.“It turned out that students weren’t knowledgeable, and it’s just not been widely publicized, so we decided to make them availableonline,” Gwaltney said.In previous years, students haveoccasionally gotten their guestsinto the games by taking the OneCards of students who where notattending games and using them asfalse identification.One of the primary purposes formaking guest passes more accessible was to provide an incentive not tosneak guests in, said Claire Atwell,co-chairwoman of Carolina Fever.The Oct. 2 game versus ECU andthe Nov. 20 game against N.C. State both will require a student ticket dis-tribution. Students must sign up forthose games by midnight Sept. 22and Nov. 10, respectively.Though many students compli-mented the policy revisions, otherssaid they were useless.“It just seems a way for theUniversity to earn a cheap buck because it’s so easy to find someone who isn’t going and borrow their OneCard,” sophomore Jake Geer said.Several said they believe thepolicy does not go far enough.“I think it’s a nice idea, but Ithink it would be more beneficialto students if it were a discountprice,” junior Tiffany Esinhart said.“If there were a way to connect dif-ferent schools and recognize a dis-counted price, I think it would bereally helpful.”

Nicholas Kristof couldn’t havefound a more receptive audience. A nearly full Memorial Hallaudience of the two-time Pulitzer winner’s faithful listened intently as he challenged students to takeon gender inequality worldwide.“In this century, the centralmoral challenge … is going to bethis profound gender inequality throughout the world,” he said.Kristof delivered the annual FrankPorter Graham lecture. Series speak-ers are picked for their concern forthe less fortunate, their commitmentto freedom of speech and their con-fidence in students to affect change. Actress and author Anna DeavereSmith delivered last year’s speech.His talk mirrored topics in hisrecently published third book,
 Half the Sky
, which he authored with his wife, Sheryl WuDunn.Using the stories of womenaround the world, Kristof makesthe case for stronger women’s rightsas a solution to global poverty.Much of his talk was familiar forlongtime column readers, but thefamiliarity made it no easier to hear.He recounted his experience buyingtwo Cambodian girls from broth-els to almost near-silence, save forquiet gasps as he revealed how hereceived receipts for the girls.“It was obviously unusual to endup buying two people,” he said.He shared the stories of a girl whose eye was gouged out by a broth-el owner, a woman who crawled formiles to be treated for a childbirthinjury, and a Ugandan girl who wasable to attend school and eventually college in the United States after herfamily was given a goat.Kristof identified human traffick-ing as one of the most significantissues facing women worldwide.Emphasizing the extent to whichtrafficking occurs, with an estimated800,000 individuals taken acrosscountry borders, he said it palesagainst the busiest year of the Trans- Atlantic slave trade, when 80,000 were taken against their will.Throughout the speech, Kristof

“You’re not going tosave the world, but  you can make it better. ” 
NICHolAs KrIsTof,
urged them to take up a cause“larger than yourself.“All of us here have truly won thelottery of life,” he said. And he discouraged students fromthinking their efforts were futile.“You’re not going to save the world, but you can make it better.”Senior Caroline Fish, last year’sEve Carson Scholarship recipient,said she was struck by the storiesKristof shared.“It was very eye-opening, evenfor people already involved in theseissues,” she said. “I found that I canstill be surprised and shocked by these issues.”
