pense was reiterated almost constantly, but was not always followed through with a sigh-of-relief-worthy finish.The notable exception came halfway through the show, when three male per-formers towered on each other’s shoulders. After a moment for applause, the topacrobat slowly retreated, leaving a towerof two. From the wings ran another male, jumping to kick the tower’s base, and knock-ing the two into a designed topple.intricate strength, creating an airy perfor-mance that feels grown up.The seven company members show extreme power of mind and body, takingtheir time and meticulously building up tocliff-hanging stunts.One went through a humorous setshowing off his fingers before attemptingthree handstand feats.

The last time Jon King appeared before the Board of Trustees, he was heckled by angry students protestingtuition increases.One of the demands of those protesters — a moretransparent endowment — is still being worked on by administrators.King is president and CEO of the UNC ManagementCompany, which makes financial decisions for endow-ments across the UNC system, including the $2.2 bil-lion Chapel Hill Investment Fund.Today he will once again present the state of theUniversity’s investment fund to the budget, finance andaudit committee of the Board of Trustees.During the November meeting, students demandedto know why no part of the endowment could be used tosoften the tuition hikes’ impact on students as adminis-trators stressed the necessity of more tuition revenue.King responded that the large majority of the money is donated with a specific purpose and can’t be appro-priated to other uses.King did not respond to calls for comment Monday and Tuesday.“Most money does not come back to the academicpurpose of the University unless the donor decides thatas the purpose,” said Karol Gray, vice chancellor forfinance and administration.Gray, who took the vice chancellor position inDecember, said she wants to work with students to clearup confusion. Next fall, Gray said she will host a panel with King and Chancellor Holden Thorp to explain how the endowment works.She compared endowment funds to a flower thatmust be left to bloom.“The only thing that comes back is the interest on theinvestment,” she said. At the November meeting, students also questioned why officials couldn’t use the endowment’s flexiblefunds that weren’t marked for a specific cause. At the meeting, King couldn’t provide the audience with the percentage of the endowment that was flex-ible.Gray estimated that about 2 percent of UNC’s endow-ment is flexible. She added that the number is very dif-ficult to determine because the funds are split up amongdifferent endowments within UNC’s overall endowment.But some students aren’t concerned about whatfunds are flexible, they’re concerned about where UNCManagement Company invests its money.Panelists at “Divestment at UNC: A History of SocialJustice” discussed some of those investments on Tuesday.The panel was hosted by the UNC Sierra StudentCoalition, the Campus Y, STAND-UNC and Students

The University’s fraternity system considered only onedisciplinary case in 2011 — anexceptional drop from the year before, prompting the system’s judiciary board to change therules.The Greek Judicial Board, which is responsible for hold-ing the 21 fraternity chaptersin the Interfraternity Councilaccountable to the Greek  Alcohol Policy and other IFCpolicies, heard 11 cases in 2010.These cases consisted of early and dry recruitment violations, hazing charges andcommon source container vio-lations.Fraternity leaders recently rewrote bylaws to require a preponderance of evidence toprosecute fraternity chapters,IFC President Jack Partainsaid.This means Greek chapterscan more easily be found to beguilty. According to the new law, they can be disciplinedif they “more likely than not”committed a violation, insteadof “beyond a reasonabledoubt.”“After the bylaws were written (in 2010), they were written with a bad burdenof proof,” Partain said. “We weren’t able to prosecute issuesthat needed to be prosecuted.”Partain referred to a sum-mer recruiting violation thattook place last year. He saidthe old bylaws’ burden of proof  was too high and thereforethe incident did not result in a sanction from the Greek judi-cial board.“We realized that was a problem,” he said. “It was notan effective system.”During the summer of 2010,

 Within minutes, NorthCarolina’s locker room inGreensboro went from elationto absolute despondency. It wasreally something. All eyes wereon Kendall Marshall, his wristreddened from the ice. His eyes were redder.There were no smiles, no jokes, and it seemed, no hope.“It was a terrible bus ride back,” coach Roy Williams said.“It was as quiet as it could be.”The top-seeded Tar Heelsemerged from that locker room onSunday with renewed vigor, evenif some believe it doesn’t matter.“Overnight we just got countedout of the race for the nationalchampionship,” UNC forwardHarrison Barnes said. “People aretelling us, you know, (like ESPNanalyst) Doug Gottlieb, that we’regoing to go back to Chapel Hilland not go to New Orleans. Nah, we’ll just keep going. Without Marshall, advanc-ing will be difficult, and that’s what UNC is preparing for. Williams said 100 percent of histeam’s preparation will be to play against Ohio without Marshall.The Tar Heels will likely beforced to change its in-gamestrategy without the second-team All-ACC point guard.UNC forward Tyler Zeller saidthe Tar Heels, and maybe hemost of all, will miss Marshall’squick transition passes if thepoint guard can’t play.But he thinks a short-handedUNC is still good enough to win.“I just think you have to makesure you look at what we haveinstead of what we’re losing,Zeller said.He certainly has a point. Without Marshall, the Tar Heels’starting lineup boasts three sure-fire first-round NBA draft picksand potentially three lottery picks — the first 14 picks made inthe NBA draft. And if the Tar Heels’ talentedroster can’t pull the cart in theSweet 16, they now have the ben-efit that most underdogs use: theneed to make believers.

“It motivates us a lot,” forwardJohn Henson said. “I guess youcould say the pressure’s off us.” When it comes to injuries,though, the Tar Heels are veter-ans.UNC lost Dexter Stricklandafter his ACL-tear and LeslieMcDonald before the seasonstarted.

he global recession is affecting different countries in different ways.In the United States, we’re doing things like living in parks likehomeless people and blaming gay marriage. In Greece, they basi-cally are about to not be a country anymore. In Sweden, they’restealing nipple chains. You read that right. An 18-year-old man was perusing the merchandise at Ladyland, a store for what I can only assume are very lady-like things, in Sundsvall, Sweden in June.Other patrons remember him as friendly, but upon leaving the store an anti- theft alarm signaled that something was amiss with the young man. A searchrevealed an $18 nipple chain stuffed in the dude’s pants.In case you were wondering, it was for his girlfriend. Allegedly.

 App to be used to check grades
By Grace Tatter
Staff Writer
 A Google application recently approved by the Chapel Hill-Carrboro Board of Educationcould help parents keep a bettertab on their children’s grades — but some worry the new technol-ogy might not reach the parents who need it the most.The board voted last week toimplement Engrade — a Googleapp that serves as an onlinegradebook — for all middle andhigh schools in the district start-ing next school year.The app allows parents andstudents with Google accounts24/7 access to teachers’ grade- books, so they can instantly see when a student’s grade drops.“Our district has really neverhad a standard across all schoolsfor online gradebooks,” said Ray Reitz, the district’s chief technol-ogy officer.“This was an attempt, at least,for the district to support oneonline gradebook program thathas been very well received in a couple of our schools.But Dana Griffin, an assistantprofessor in the UNC School of Education, said schools should be wary that parents who they wantto reach most might not be on theInternet, which was the case in thedistricts she researched in 2009.“Even using an app like this,only a certain population willhave access. Schools will notreach the parents they want toreach,” she said.Reitz said the district hastaken this into account, and eachschool offers paper progressreports as well.“The district understands thatthere is a digital divide in ourcommunity,” he said. “We arecurrently working with the townand several local organizationsto develop solutions to this chal-lenge.”The district began testingthe program at Carrboro HighSchool and Smith Middle Schoolin 2009, and later implementedthe program in both entireschools.Smith Middle SchoolTechnology Specialist KevinHarvey said the school hasresponded well to the app.“Communication with fami-lies has always been a priority,and this is one way that we cancommunicate information thatfamilies want and need moreeffectively,” he said. And Griffin said increasedcommunication about grades canraise student achievement.“Teachers might think Csare fine, because a student isn’tfailing,” Griffin said. “But someparents might want to know thattheir child is making Cs, becausethey know or think their childcan do better.”But she warned against “heli-copter parenting,” or parents behaving overbearingly.“You have parents who may see bad grades and come in andintervene before the child has a chance to,” she said. “But otherparents will put the responsibil-ity where it needs to be — on thekid.”

Severe paddlings, forcedgarbage ingestion and other ini-tiation tactics have sparked theinterest of UNC-system leaders,following recent allegations of hazing instances nationwide.Dartmouth College madeheadlines earlier this month forrecent allegations that hazingevents, including swimmingthrough a pool of vomit, took place in a Sigma Alpha Epsilonfraternity pledging event. AndFlorida A&M University dealtthis past fall with marching band hazing incidents, whichresulted in a death, according toCNN news reports.Members of the UNC-system Association of StudentGovernments were prompted by these hazing incidents tostart a discussion on the dan-gers of hazing at the group’smonthly meeting.“We wanted to raise aware-ness about hazing and identify it,” said Lauren Estes, student body president at AppalachianState University.The discussion precedes the Annual N.C. Higher EducationSafety Symposium, which will examine campus safety,on March 28 at East Carolina University.Peter Romary, director of Student Legal Services at ECU,said the hazing discussionsduring the symposium willtackle issues of prevention andawareness.“The misconception is thathazing only occurs in Greek organizations,” he said. “It hap-pens across the board, it hap-pens in teams, in a residencehall — it has the ability toimpact anyone.”North Carolina state law upholds that the act of hazing isillegal, and “to subject anotherstudent to physical injury as partof an initiation, or as a prerequi-site to membership” could resultin a class two misdemeanor.The UNC system has a strongno-tolerance policy on hazing, but studies suggest that mosthazing incidents go unreported.Most universities in the sys-tem use a self-reporting methodto deal with hazing.UNC-CH uses a hazinghotline, allowing those whoreport incidents to remainanonymous.“These hotlines just providea little help in overcoming the various pressures and anxietiesassociated with reporting,” said Aaron Bachenheimer, directorof fraternity and sorority life atUNC-CH.He said there have been noreported incidents of hazingsince he started his post thisfall. All newly pledged fraternity and sorority members sign a haz-ing contract and read the new member bill of rights, he said.But according to a report by the National Collaborativefor Hazing Research andPrevention, 95 percent of col-lege students in 2008 who saidthey were hazed did not reportthe incident.The main reason studentsgave for their silence was thatthey didn’t want to get theirteam or group in trouble, thereport said. At ECU, the majority of theanonymous tippers are not in theGreek system, said Keith Tingley,director of Greek life at ECU.“We’ll get a call from some-one, a family member or a sig-nificant other,” he said. ASU’s fraternity Pi Kappa  Alpha was suspended lastmonth until spring 2014 for a hazing incident.“Since the incident, no policieshave been changed,” said JamarBanks, director for the Centerfor Student Involvement andLeadership at ASU. “It’s businessas usual, it’s pretty much a no-hazing policy, period.”

New York Times White House correspondent Helene Cooper speaks to UNC journalism students and faculty Tuesday about her experience.
By Emily Overcarsh
Staff Writer
Helene Cooper said she almost peedin her pants the first time she stepped on Air Force One.The UNC alumna has been a WhiteHouse correspondent for The New York Times since President Barack Obama wasinaugurated, and her first interview withhim was on Air Force One.“All I wanted to do when I got on it islike steal stuff,” Cooper said at her lectureTuesday in the George Watts Hill AlumniCenter.“So I was in the bathroom looking for Air Force One soaps when Robert Gibbs, who’s the press secretary, said, ‘The presi-dent is ready to see you now if you canremove yourself from the soaps.’”Cooper lectured about her career as a reporter and her experience as the firstperson to break the news that Osama binLaden had been killed.She started her journalism career atThe Daily Tar Heel as a sophomore.“It took me like a year to get on thestaff of the DTH,” Cooper said in aninterview before the event. “I kept trying,and they were like, ‘No, get in line.’”She said her most influential jour-nalism teacher was Jock Lauterer, whotaught her news writing class.

UNC sophomore Bailey Jonesdidn’t write a play to empowerthe world or send a message —she wrote it as a personal chal-lenge.Her first play, “Sisterhood,” will be performed as part of LAB!Theatre’s “One-Acts in the Park.”“Really, it was just thata lot of under-grads writeplays, and I wanted to see what I could do with it,” Jones said.“Sisterhood” explores therelationship between Sarah andKatie, and its evolution over thecourse of their lives.The two characters are bestfriends, and the play begins when they are nine years old. Itfollows the characters throughtheir high school years and theirtwenties.Jones said that to write theplay, she took elements from herown friendships. It begins inthe two girls’ youth and revisitsthem in future settings.“As the girls get older, theirrelationships with boys andparents, and their expecta-tions of what they want out of life change, which shapes theirfriendship,” Jones said. After LAB! provided Jones’play with a director, she let go of the reins.“It’s tempting to try to keepcreative control over every littledetail when you have createdsomething,” she said. “It’s help-ful in its growth to let someoneelse take over and see what they can do.”The play’s director, sopho-more Dane Keil, said he hasappreciated the experience of making his directorial debut with Jones’ play.He said that although Joneshas given him the freedom to do what he wants with the play, he’sstayed true to the script.“I like Bailey’s writing and Ilike this kind of story,” he said.“It has a pretty clear dichotomy  between the characters — one is what the other isn’t.”Tori Male, who plays the roleof Sarah, said Jones’ voice is pal-pable in “Sisterhood.“Bailey is a very witty, dead-pan, sarcastic person,” Male said.“You can see her personality reflected in the play.”Male, who directed a play forlast year’s festival, said she canrelate to the play’s theme.“There is an undercurrent of

“My job is to paint a picture for readers on what it’s like to be president. What does it taste like? What does it feel like?”

“I remember Helene fondly as a realgo-getter,” Lauterer said. “When I foundout she was a big rock star in the field I was not at all surprised.”Cooper worked for the ProvidenceJournal before moving to The Wall StreetJournal, where she was one of the firstreporters on the ground during the Iraq  War.“My Humvee got run over by a tank the second night of the invasion,” Coopersaid. “It was ridiculous, and by then I was scared out of my mind and wishingI hadn’t gone, but unfortunately I wasn’thurt enough to get medevaced out.” After a 12-year stint at The Wall StreetJournal she moved to The New York Times, where she is today.“My job is to paint a picture for read-ers on what it’s like to be president. Whatdoes it taste like? What does it feel like? What is it actually like to fly around inthis tricked out plane? That is not alwayseasy to do,” Cooper said.“I’m always going back and forth with thepresident’s advisers, trying to paint a fullerpicture than they are willing to present.”Cooper said her biggest story was breaking the news that Osama bin Ladenhad been caught and killed. She said she was the first reporter to get the story, and within minutes of posting it, The New  York Times’ website was close to crashingfrom views.“After like a dozen calls I got thissource high up in the government and Isaid, ‘I hear we captured bin Laden,’ andhe said, ‘Killed, not captured,’ and hehung up the phone.”Emily Palmer, a sophomore globalstudies and multimedia journalismdouble major, said she was inspired by Cooper’s lecture.“I’m an aspiring journalist, and I’mreally interested in doing something sim-ilar to what she’s done,” Palmer said.“I could really hear the passion in her voice when she talked about getting thestory.”
