College grads face improved job prospects
Hiring projections have climbed 10.2 percent for recent graduates.
By Kate Caison
There is good news for seniors still looking for a last-minute job offer — a recent study found that hiring has begun to increase for college graduates as the economy slowly recovers. Hiring projections increased by 10.2 percent from the previous year for recent college graduates, according to a report by the National Association of Colleges and Employers. “People are getting more optimistic,” said Tim Stiles, associate director of University Career Services. “They are willing to take the chance on hiring.” Anthony Carnevale, director of the Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce, said the increase in hiring of college graduates is directly linked to the economic climate. The economy and the job market are cyclical — when the economy goes down, there are fewer jobs, Carnevale said. But
now that the economy has begun to recover, employment has seen an uptick. Although some students might have sought fewer job opportunities more aggressively during the recession, the recent increase in hiring cannot be fully attributed to new strategies formulated by students, Stiles said. “I would love to think that the downturn motivated students, but that has not been our experience,” he said. He said the situation was similar during previous economic downturns beginning in the early 1990s. “Intuitively, I thought people were going to be motivated,” he said. “But it didn’t happen — the first recession, second and now third.” Stiles added that some students work harder to obtain a job regardless of the economy. “There’s still a group of students that have padded their resumes.” Darya Gakh, a senior chemistry major, said she didn’t start her job search any earlier because of the economy. “I was lazy about it until about a month ago, and then I got more

Sitting Down with Ferrell Guillory
By Hailey Vest
When Rebecca Goldstein received an email warning her of a computer virus, she didn’t think much of it. But several days of spotty Internet access finally prompted the freshman to take her Mac to the Information Technology Services Response Center. There, she learned her laptop had been attacked by a virus — one that has infected 600,000 Apple computers worldwide in just the past few months. At UNC, 200 students have found the virus on their computers in the last week, said Stan Waddell, executive director for information security. He said the virus, called Flashback, is of a type that typically captures private information like passwords and credit card numbers when a user
types in the information online. Users can get it from links on innocuous websites like Facebook, he said, and infection can occur with just one click. The virus might also be capable of disabling anti-virus software and enabling other malware, he added. The virus does not affect iPads or iPhones. “It’s designed to gain a toehold in the system to allow other software to be run that you wouldn’t intend to run.”
Journalism professor Ferrel Guillory is an expert on Southern politics and will teach a course in the fall on elections reporting. He founded UNC’s Program on Public Life to link academic resources and North Carolina’s public leaders.
The growing popularity of Macs could be making the brand a more likely target for attack. Bruce Egan, director of the response center, said the breadth of this attack is unprecedented. “This is the first time Macs have been hit really hard,” he said. Egan said the University network recognizes when a computer has a
Daily Tar Heel: Has the dynamic of the Republican presidential race in the South changed since Rick Santorum dropped out? Ferrel Guillory: When former Senator Santorum dropped out, clearly that solidified former Governor (Mitt) Romney as the frontrunner. There will be less emphasis on Republican primaries to come, including North Carolina. There are still a considerable number of delegates from the South, and it looks like Newt Gingrich, former House speaker, is still going to campaign. It’s hard to see either Gingrich or Ron Paul knocking Romney off his course toward the nomination. DTH: What is your outlook on the chances Amendment One will pass? FG: Amendment One is an expression of two things. One is the overlay of cultural conservatism in North Carolina, a long-standing feature of the state and its society. It’s also an expression of Republican legislators’ interests in elevating social issues during the 2012 campaign. Polls have been showing strong support for the amendment and I think the question is whether the push back from business leaders, civic leaders and legal scholars will build enough countermovement between now and May to derail it. The amendment adds language to the (N.C.) Constitution, and I think we ought to be careful as a society when dealing with our constitutions. Our con-

Dual language program threatened
parents rally to keep the school district’s chinese program.
By Jenny Surane
When Wen-Ching Liu decided to teach in Chapel HillCarrboro City Schools, she said she made the decision because she admired the district’s unique Chinese dual language program. But after the district recently announced it might phase out the program, Liu, who teaches at McDougle Middle School, said she is questioning whether she made the right decision. “Right now nobody is telling me what is going on or what will
be happening in the future,” Liu said. Last month, CHCCS released a report that recommended the district phase out the Chinese dual language program, which has the maximum 159 enrolled students throughout the district. The dual language program, which has been offered since 2002, combines native foreign language speakers and English speakers in the same classroom. Students are taught in English for half of the day and a foreign language for the other half. Some parents and teachers are pushing for expanded Chinese dual language services. But Todd LoFrese, district assistant superintendent for sup-
port services, said the biggest problems facing the program are cost-effectiveness, trouble finding qualified teachers and a lack of continued interest from students. “We wanted 50 percent of the students to be native speakers and 50 percent to be non-native speakers,” LoFrese said. “We have been unsuccessful at enrolling 50 percent of the program with Chinese speakers.” Since the report was released, parent groups have rallied together to address some of the problems mentioned. Lixin Yao, whose son is a fourth-grader enrolled in the dual language program at Glenwood Elementary, joined a parent group to find more qualified teachers for the pro-
gram. Yao said he thinks the report released last month was the first time many of the issues had been raised with parents. “They said they don’t have too many students enrolling in middle and high school; that’s because in elementary school the base is too small,” he said. But LoFrese said expanding the program would only create more problems with staffing. “People have suggested that we start with a larger base but combine classes as kids drop the program,” he said. “But we cannot recruit and retain teachers for the size of the program it is currently, and expanding would essentially double that
stitutions are about spelling out people’s rights and framing the construct of the government, and we ought to not be trifling with the Constitution for whatever political or emotional trends of the moment. I’ve got to say as an analyst, it looks like the amendment is going to pass, but I hope North Carolinians have second thoughts about it.
DTH: Do you think Amendment One will bring a lot more liberalleaning people to the polls? FG: Since the Republican presidential primary will mean less now than it appeared early on, we may have fewer conservative-leaning voters coming to the polls. There’s a contest for the Democratic nomination for governor, and that usually stirs people up. There’s not been much television advertising in this elecSee Guillory, Page 4

ot that we have any first-hand experience, but apparently being straight on fire is not nearly as profitable as it used to be. According to Washington Post columnist George Will, the price of cocaine has dropped between 80 and 90 percent since the early 1980s. The reasoning seems to be multifaceted: First, there’s more of it. And most dealers are no longer getting shot at all day. When others take over the trade, the premium on violence tends to dip. Also, personal airplanes have lowered costs for traffickers, who are kindly passing those savings to consumers.

2-term ASG president says goodbye Murder
Bhula, lauded for his relationships, has faced criticism, uncertainty.
By Madeline Will
Assistant State & National Editor
After two years as the leader of the UNC-system Association of Student Governments and as the sole student member on the system’s Board of Governors, Atul Bhula is preparing to step out of office. The next association president will be elected Saturday at ASG’s monthly meeting at N.C. State University and will formally take office May 1. Bhula’s two terms have been marked by an uncertain future of education funding, rising tuition costs and criticism about the association’s effectiveness. “These last two years have been really, really interesting, that’s for sure,” Bhula said. “It’s a
bittersweet moment.” The association is composed of student leaders across the state and is funded by an annual $1 student fee. Criticism about an inefficient use of student fees thrust ASG and Bhula’s leadership into the limelight this year. In February, UNC-CH had a student referendum to see if students wanted to retain the school’s membership in ASG. Students chose to maintain the University’s participation by a 57.4 percent to 40.8 percent vote. ASG failed to achieve quorum for its March meeting. “Some of (the criticism) was completely unformed,” Bhula said. “I always appreciate constructive criticism, but criticism without any alternatives — I don’t know if I appreciate that.” Bhula created a task force in November to look into reforming the association. The legislation created by the task force, chaired by UNC-CH’s former Student Body President
Mary Cooper, has yet to pass. “I would have liked to see this done a while back,” Bhula said. Cooper said it will take time for the association to change. “Atul really did want to make it better,” she said. “There are always things leaders could have done better, but Atul did step up to the plate to take on a big leadership role in a challenging year.” Tuition and fees increased by a system-wide average of 8.8 percent this year. ASG released a letter supporting the tuition proposal designed by system President Thomas Ross — a move that drew some criticism. ASG Senior Vice President Arjay Quizon said he would have preferred to see ASG create its own recommendation to present to the Board of Governors. And association members have long hoped for its president, a non-voting member of the board, to gain a vote. Bhula said he has made progress through individual conversa-
tions with board members who have expressed interest in the possibility of adding the student vote. In the past, some had criticized Bhula for not publicly speaking up at board meetings. But personal conversations have defined Bhula’s participation. “One of Atul’s greatest strengths has been his leadership with the board,” Quizon said. “Most of the board members know Atul by first name, and they have a lot of respect for him.” Within the association, Bhula cited his creation of a $50,000 surplus within the budget to be used for future projects as his biggest accomplishment. Quizon said he has admired Bhula’s leadership. “He keeps informed about what’s happening with the system, and he communicates with the student body presidents very well, and that’s Atul in a nutshell.” Cooper cited Bhula’s ability to work well with diverse personalities as his biggest strength.

Brain injuries on the rise among football programs
Full-contact football has seen a rise in catastrophic brain injuries, according to research at UNC. According to the National Center for Catastrophic Sports Injury Research, injuries result mainly from tackling. Headto-head contact was banned in 1976 but continues to be part of the game and can lead to spine fractures or permanent brain injuries. The center aims to eliminate incidences of death among football players through research on preventing cervical cord injuries. UNC’s Fred Mueller helped write the report and is also director of the center. He is a professor emeritus of exercise and sports science. He said while significant gains in research have been made for football brain injuries, the number of injuries continues to rise. This growing rate might be due to many coaches’ recent awareness of injury prevention.

Company Carolina performs ‘A theAter review midsummer night’s dream’ for Title “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” Artist Company Carolina shakespeare on the Quad. Date Saturday, April 14, 2012
By Mary Stevens
‘A midsummer night’s dreAm’
Time: 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday Location: Polk Place Info: www.unc.edu/company
William Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” is set in a magical forest, so it’s appropriate that Company Carolina staged its production of the play among the trees of Polk Place. The show keeps the audience engaged with innovative outdoor staging and energetic acting, but the acting lacks believability at times. The actors draw the audience into the dreamy depths of the forest for the inaugural play of the company’s Shakespeare on the Quad series, which the company hopes to make an annual event. The company takes a lighthearted approach to the whimsical classic, in which a ragtag group of amateur actors and four Athenian lovers find themselves in a feud between the king and queen of the fairies. At times during Saturday’s performance, the actors had to compete for attention with the various distractions of the sunny spring day, but the actors project their lines with energy.
With that projection, the actors sometimes muffed the phrasing of lines, making segments of dialogue difficult to follow. They achieve the delicate balance of volume, phrasing and fervor in the energetic scenes. Proclamations of love by the Athenians and devious musings by the fairies give the show elements of passion and intensity. Sophomore Gentry Hodnett — who plays the fairy queen Titania — gives a fiery performance that complements the carefree performances of the mischievous attendant fairies who flippantly flit about the stage. Elliot Darrow plays Puck, the fairy servant who is the jester of fairy king Oberon and the main perpetrator of farcical mayhem in the play. Darrow is a master of motion, dancing lithely through the trees and controlling the play’s tempo with his well-timed pranks. But the play’s dynamic choreography sometimes falls flat. The pushes and
shoves of the frustrated lovers are forced and translate poorly to the emotions of their dramatic dialogue. On the other hand, the company excels with the play’s comedic scenes. Bill Odette, who plays actor Nick Bottom, uses his asinine lines to his full advantage while in scenes with the play’s band of actors. Their half-witted demeanors make the show entertaining for children and adults alike — though some of the humor is not entirely appropriate for all ages. While children may not pick up on what the duke is referring to when he mentions his “sword,” the sensual kissing and caressing exchanged by Titania and Bottom had many adults whisking their children out of the audience. Though the energy levels of the show waver at times, the production delights overall with the fickleness of lovers, bumblings of Bottom and shenanigans of sprites.

Perceptions of depression
Benjamin Rosado traveled to Guatemala and interviewed 46 people about how they perceive depression and its causes. “Mental health is very stigmatized and often overlooked,” Rosado said. He read a story to participants whose subject showed symptoms of depression and followed up with questions. Most thought the symptoms were normal and from a temporary mood change. Only a small percentage of respondents identified that the person in the story has depression. The people who recognized the depression were non-indigenous, financially stable and from urban areas. Rosado said depression is linked to large social forces like violence and poverty and said he will continue his work on cross-cultural mental health in Mexico after graduation. “Depression is definitely something that needs more attention.”
How people Tweet sporting events
Brittany Hayes, an information science major, analyzed Twitter use during sporting events and created a method to track sports-related tweets. She studied three groups: athletes, administration and the general public, during the Australian Open. For athletes and administrators, she chose specific accounts to follow. In order to gauge public opinion, she watched certain keywords, like #ausopen. Hayes categorized the groups based on what they try to accomplish using Twitter. She found that sports administrators are more likely to use Twitter to spread information because they want to encourage conversation and interest. But players usually share off-topic opinions and often tweet to other athletes, she said. Hayes said the public’s tweets are a combination of fact and opinion. In the future, Hayes said she might explore how non-English speakers tweet differently than Englishspeaking peers.
Love in ‘Fight Club’ and ‘The Notebook’
Jenna Stout polled students to find the ultimate guy and girl movie and compared them. The results? “Fight Club” and “The Notebook.” “Both love stories are initially thwarted by consumerism,” Stout said. She focused her research on “Fight Club” and found that the narrator, played by Edward Norton, treats people like objects. “People to him are just like IKEA furnishings, the same thing over and over again,” Stout said. But with the formation of the fight club and another world, he learns to feel pain and form relationships, overcoming consumerism.
Defense and prosecution attorneys in the case of murdered Chapel Hill resident Josh Bailey spent most of Monday piecing together the intricacies of Bailey’s social life and murder in the summer of 2008. On the third day of the trial of Brian Gregory Minton, 23, the defense questioned the testimony of the first witness, Jack Johnson II. Minton is charged with firstdegree murder and kidnapping in 20-year-old Bailey’s July 2008 death. Although Minton did not shoot Bailey, the state contends that he led a group, including alleged shooter Matt Johnson, to kill him. Testimony by Jack Johnson to Orange-Chatham District Attorney Jim Woodall on Friday corroborated that claim. The cross-examination by Minton’s attorney, James Glover, focused on Jack Johnson’s relationship with each member of the group involved in the murder. Jack Johnson — a Chapel Hill High School graduate who was 19 at the time of the murder — said he became friends with Bailey at Caribou Coffee on Franklin Street, and they shared many of the same friends. Glover referred back to his opening statements made on Thursday, when he said the group was too fluid to have a designated leader. He also questioned Jack Johnson’s answers to police investigators when he was first questioned in September 2008. Jack Johnson said he lied to investigators to protect friends he cared for. But he said he protected Minton out of fear, because Minton told him his father was connected to the Hells Angels. “I wasn’t really looking at the situation the way I was supposed to,” he said. “I was just giving them answers.” Glover refuted Jack Johnson’s statement and said interviews in which he told police of Minton’s involvement did not suggest that he was intimidated by the family. Josh Bailey’s adoptive father, Steve Bailey, then took the stand. He said Josh Bailey suffered from several mental illnesses — including attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder and bipolar disorder — which caused him to struggle with communication and doing several tasks at once. “He’d get really lost, and he’d just shut down,” Bailey said. Steve Bailey said he became worried about Josh Bailey around the time of his murder after two weeks with no contact, which was unusual for Josh, who was close to his family. But it was when he missed a planned meeting with his grandmother and failed to call his mother on her birthday that Steve Bailey said he began to worry something was wrong. The last witness to testify Monday was Ryan Lee, who said he was present for Josh Bailey’s murder but did not take part in it. He said he didn’t watch Matt Johnson shoot Bailey, but he said he saw Johnson point the gun at Bailey and then heard a thump. “I turned my head,” Lee said. “I didn’t want to see Josh get shot.” He said he knew the group charged with the murder because he would drive them places in exchange for gas money. Lee repeated much of what Jack Johnson testified on Friday — that Josh Bailey was accused of leaking information on the group’s illegal activities to police, beaten, bound with duct tape, taken to a woody area and shot in the head. Lee said Josh Bailey was questioned by the group in Minton’s garage, but then either Minton or another group member, Jacob Maxwell, decided to move to a more isolated area.

Fg: I’m teaching a basic reporting class that’s going to be focused on the elections. It just seems to me that democracy and journalism are inextricably connected. In terms of teaching, I much prefer to give students real-life assignments rather than make up assignments or just do news for

I think students will be much more interested in looking at the governor’s race, looking at the congressional race and learning how to do reporting. convention and during the time of the convention, it will certainly cast a national spotlight on Charlotte. The people in Charlotte are working real hard to make it a positive experience. Clearly there is some economic benefit to Charlotte in terms of having a lot of visitors there, but also (it positions) Charlotte as a modern American city … I think having the convention there goes beyond what it does for Charlotte. It signifies North Carolina as one of the swing states, so the presidential campaign will play out vividly in North Carolina and the votes in this state will really matter.

The virus is especially dangerous because there are no obvious signs that a computer is infected. For those who don’t use the campus network, the virus is virtually undetectable. “I had no idea I had the virus,” sophomore Eli Howells said. The virus was discovered last September, and Apple released an update targeting the Flashback trojan earlier this month.

In the report, the district also announced it would recommend expansion of the district’s Spanish dual language program. McDougle Principal Debra Scott said the recommendation was not made in response to the struggles of the Chinese program. “There was never a prioritization of one program over another,” she said in an email. “They are both wonderful programs for ESL students.” LoFrese said the decision was made due to the large number of Limited English Proficient students who had enrolled in the Spanish program. Only 23.8 percent of the district’s Chinese LEP students are enrolled in the Chinese program, while roughly 65.3 percent of Spanish LEP students are enrolled in the Spanish program. Jose Nambo, the district’s dual language and ESL coordinator, said they will consider community feedback and will tentatively present an expanded report to the school board on May 17. The district will also hold a community forum with a focus on sustaining the Chinese language program tonight at 5 p.m. in the Glenwood Elementary cafeteria.

Blocking an infected computer’s Internet access prevents the virus — and whatever remote actor controls it — from accessing a user’s information. Matthew Belskie, supervisor of ITS walk-in services, said ITS blocked 120 computers Saturday and Sunday. “You are on a campus that has a very proactive security group,” he said.

Being a science major, I am often one out of 150 in a class; however, during Summer School, I was one of twenty. I had the opportunity to take a class outside of my major, COMM 140, which helped me explore media theory - something I wouldn’t have had time to do during the regular semester.

Woman walks across US for elderly care
By Caroline Hudson
o∞cials consider half-cent tax
By Daniel Schere
generationS of Science
Website: http://walkusa4soar. org/ Twitter: @SOARFeat2012
Teri Swezey set out on a crosscountry journey this month with her mother in mind. Swezey, who normally resides in Carrboro, began walking on April 1 from Wrightsville Beach to raise money and awareness for the elderly and their caregivers. She will end her 3,039 mile walk in Cambria, Calif., in about six to seven months. Swezey helped create the organization Seniors Obtaining Assistance and Resources Inc. (SOAR), because her late mother developed mixed vascular dementia — a disease caused by problems with the blood supply to the brain, and the second most common form of dementia. Swezey, a 57-year-old public health researcher, said caring for her mother was transformative. “I became my mother’s mother,”
she said. “Because of dementia, it was difficult for her to lose her independence.” She said the experience made her appreciate the importance of quality of life and relationships with others. “While we had our battles, we also had the sweetest moments,” she said. She said her mother’s spirit motivated her to begin her walk. “She was an amazing athlete and strong in all aspects,” she said. Swezey said she tries to walk 15 miles a day, which takes about seven hours. Her partner, Robert Hoggard, follows behind her with a trailer.
She said they sleep in RV campgrounds, hotels or state parks, and she eats food that is stored in the trailer in order to keep costs down. “I eat turkey jerky on the road,” she said. Swezey said she has talked with people about her organization along the way, and this effort has paid off. She has raised $3,500 of her $180,000 goal, and the money raised will go toward prescriptions, Meals on Wheels and various elderly caregiving programs. Swezey is currently in South Carolina, making her way to Columbia. “I’m not burnt out at all,” she said. “I find walking to be very relaxing. It gives me lots of time to think.” Many businesses in the Chapel Hill-Carrboro area, including Farrell’s Self Storage and Great Outdoor Provision
Company, have donated to Swezey’s organization. Jim Moore, manager of Farrell’s Self Storage, said his own experience as a caregiver has given him a connection to Swezey’s mission. “She has a desire to bring forth what’s important to her,” he said. “I give her credit. I don’t think it was easy to gain support.” Ann Stuntz, assistant manager of the Great Outdoor Provision Co. store in Chapel Hill, said the company donated products such as reflective gear, rain gear and socks for Swezey’s trip. “We really believe in what she’s doing,” Stuntz said. “I hope it will have a tremendous impact. It will bring awareness to a group of people in the margins.” Contact the City Editor at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Orange County Democrats jumped on board this weekend to support a sales tax increase that could determine the fate of a proposed light rail connecting Chapel Hill and Durham. On Saturday, the Orange County Democratic Party passed a resolution to place a halfcent sales tax increase on the November ballot. But some local officials and residents are hesitant to implement another sales tax increase after the county implemented a quarter-cent sales tax on April 1 to benefit education and economic development. Chairman Matt Hughes said the resolution was passed because the planned light rail would promote economic development along U.S. 15-501 and I-40. “Quite frankly, adding more
lanes to a highway is not the answer to our growth problems,” he said. The Orange County Board of Commissioners will vote June 5 whether to put the tax increase referendum on the November ballot. Revenue from the tax would be used to fund the regional transit system, primarily the proposed 17-mile light rail. Bernadette Pelissier, chairwoman of the board, said putting the proposed increase on the ballot would demonstrate the county’s effort to invest in a light rail, which might increase chances for state and federal funding. “We need to show we’re committed to this,” she said. Pelissier said the tax would also be a step forward in unifying Orange County’s transit goals with Durham County, which passed a similar tax in November. She said if the tax does not pass, the county will be unable to build a
light rail in the near future. “It would be a great disappointment not just for Orange County but for Durham too,” she said. Pelissier said she hopes the board will approve the referendum, but the decision would ultimately be left to the voters. But Commissioner Earl McKee said he doesn’t think now is the right time to put a sales tax increase on the ballot, citing the quartercent increase passed in November. “This is a major issue that will have long-term consequences for the tax base,” he said. McKee said he doesn’t think the construction of a light rail is a worthwhile use of taxpayer dollars because it does not meet the needs of the county as a whole. “We need to have much more discussion and much more planning,” he said. McKee said he is not opposed to a light rail in the future, but he thinks efforts to expand transit
service should now be focused on improving bus lines in Mebane and Hillsborough. Brian Evans, a UNC doctoral student, said he would support the tax if it improved bus service. Orange County resident Tony Gore said he doesn’t want to see another tax increase because he is on a fixed income. “I would do anything to oppose that,” he said. Hughes urged critics of the plan to understand that a light rail would benefit people who commute from surrounding areas. “It’s not just a Chapel HillCarrboro concentrated plan,” he said. The Board of Commissioners will hold a public hearing on the proposed Orange County Transit Plan at 7 p.m. tonight at the Southern Human Services Center.

››› Trial begins for confessed Norwegian killer of 77
LONDON (MCT) — Anders Behring Breivik, who has confessed to killing 77 people in a rampage last July, went on trial Monday in Oslo for Norway’s worst criminal episode since World War II. The 33-year-old right-wing extremist has admitted to slaying 69 young people gathered for an annual Labor Party political camp on the Norwegian island of Utoya on July 22 after killing eight other people by detonating a homemade bomb that destroyed a government building in the center of the Norwegian capital. Breivik appeared calm and defiant as he entered the courtroom dressed in a dark suit and wearing handcuffs. He surveyed the ranks of media and public packed inside the courtroom and smiled. Family members and survivors of the attacks were in the public sector, separated from the defendant by thick glass partitions. After his handcuffs were removed he gave a raised-fist fascist style salute before sitting down and giving a brief statement, saying: “I do not recognize the Norwegian courts. … You have received your mandate from political parties which support multiculturalism.” He went on to say he acknowledged the acts but claimed he carried them out “in self defense.” Breivik’s antagonism to Islam, Muslim immigrants and multiculturalism has been aired in documents and statements since the killings. Through his lawyer, Geir Lippestad, he has said he was sorry he “didn’t go further” to kill more than the 77 victims. Under Norwegian law he faces a maximum penalty of 21 years in prison, which can be extended to life. both parties expect will be the case through much of the next seven months. The former Massachusetts governor, emerging from a difficult and longer-than-expected Republican nomination battle, has the support of 47 percent of registered voters nationwide, while the president has 45 percent support. Two percent of voters said they supported another candidate, while 7 percent were undecided. That’s a statistical tie, given the survey’s margin of error of 3 percentage points. Both parties’ bases seem firmly behind their presumed nominees.

The future of higher education in the state will be the focus of a discussion between N.C. legislators and students in Kenan Hall today. The meeting will be put on by the UNC-system Association of Student Governments, which is composed of student leaders across the state and funded by an annual $1 student fee. Christine Hajdin, vice president of ASG’s legislative and public affairs committee, organized the meeting in hopes of inspiring a statewide dialogue between students and their representatives. “I’ve been working with and encouraging other schools to invite their representatives to campus,” Hajdin said in an email. “I’m hoping this movement will go through next fall and all of the campuses will have the opportunity to have campus visits by their representatives.” Several schools — including N.C. Central University, Western Carolina University and N.C. Agricultural & Technical State University — have planned or have already invited representatives to their campuses, Hajdin said. Hajdin invited Rep. Verla Insko, D-Orange, and Sen. Ellie Kinnaird, D-Orange, to discuss the future of higher education and the relationship between the UNC system and the state. She said the cost of the event totaled about $50 due to printing costs for flyers and thank you presents for each of the representatives. Hajdin said she wanted to give students a chance to voice their opinions to the legislators with
the question-and-answer session. Insko said she hopes to focus on the UNC system during her speech, but particularly UNC-CH as the flagship university of the system. “We will be discussing the future of higher education. This is a nationwide effort — how the university will respond to the decreasing funding,” Insko said. “There’s a lot of pressure on the federal level,” she said. “There are fewer dollars flowing down … this is also true on the state level.” UNC-CH Student Body President Will Leimenstoll said he plans to attend. “These have always been strong defenders of the University,” he said. Leimenstoll said he will focus on discussing what the average student can do to make an impact in the midst of challenges due to state funding cuts. The UNC system has absorbed more than $1 billion in state funding cuts during the last five years. “There are certainly things students can do to have an impact.” Insko said she encourages students to come to the N.C. General Assembly and meet with their representatives. “We want every legislator to know and meet who they represent,” she said. “I am always encouraging students to meet their legislators.” Contact the State & National Editor at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Ackland displays grad student work
a new exhibition features the work of 8 MFa students.
By Caroline Pate
While finals for UNC undergraduates are still just around the corner, eight graduating Masters of Fine Arts students now have their final work on display. The exhibition of their work, titled “New Currents in Contemporary Art,” opened April 13 at the Ackland Art Museum and will run through May 13. The exhibition features work by fine arts graduate students Lee Delegard, Ashley Florence, Cora Lim, Chris Musina, Jason Osborne, Neill Prewitt, Jonathan Sherrill and Seoun Som. Lauren Turner, the curatorial assistant for the Ackland who curated the exhibition, said that although the students’ work was extremely varied, they were all adventurous with their art. “These students are not afraid to go outside the specialties that they were accepted into the pro-
gram,” Turner said. Turner said the exhibition fits in with the recent contemporary exhibitions at the Ackland. “The Ackland has been making an effort to show contemporary art, and this is contemporary as it gets.” She said it was clear that the students inspired each other after two years of working close together and critiquing one another. “I think that the program is very strong in encouraging students to collaborate and interact with each other,” she said. Despite coming together as a group to present the work, many of the students had vastly different inspirations and processes for their pieces in the exhibition. Sherrill said his pieces were created by tearing apart and sewing together his old paintings. “Much of my work is cyclical,” he said. “I reuse things and work that I’ve made in the past.” Lim said the different pieces came together well. “Seeing us become like one big group, that was one of the most enjoyable parts about the program.” Contact the Arts Editor at email@example.com.
courtesy of lee delegard Delegard said her work consists of papiermache structures that are made with a variety of found items, such as paper found in the art department’s recycling bin, sticks, construction paper and a pink extension cord from Student Stores. She said she juxtaposed common items to make them unrecognizable and created physical tension in her work. “A lot of my work is inspired by the aesthetics of the things that are around me.”
dth/silvana goberdhan-vigle Musina said his work is inspired by animal representation and its relationships with art, history, mythology and science. He said his pieces come as a result of his research into a specific subject that interests him and finding connections to other subjects. Because his work riffs on museums, he said showing in the Ackland made sense. “I like that the Ackland has a historical feel to it and I think it brings another level to my work.”
dth/silvana goberdhan-vigle Som said his work is about the question of identity. He was born to Cambodian parents in Thailand, grew up in Australia and has lived in the United States for eight years. His pieces include a video that explores the concept of foreign language, and sculptures made from bamboo and string that were inspired by the structure of Cambodian kites. “For me, the process is meditative and it’s very strenuous at the same time. It’s an intuitive process.”
Old ballets with modern spins
Memorial Hall is featuring French and Swedish companies.
By Janna Jung-Irrgang
Time: 7:30 p.m. tonight Location: Memorial Hall Info: carolinaperformingarts.org
Within two weeks, Carolina Performing Arts is presenting two very different ballets. After the April 4 and 5 performances of the narrative “Snow White” by France’s Ballet Preljocaj, the University’s premier art’s organization is presenting a non-narrative performance from Sweden’s Goteborg Ballet. Ellen James, marketing manager for executive office for the arts, said the two different ballets are separate pieces in the intricate development process. “Our season is always eclectic, broad and incorporates various art forms,” she said. “We curate it as a whole entity and want dance to be represented.” She said the company tries to present ballets with a modern twist. “Sometimes we think every ballet is just tutus and tendus,” James said. “Goteborg is a really interesting company — they represent both classical and contemporary. It’s very contemporary in its dance as well as what it represents for our society.” Goteborg is performing three numbers — Kenneth Kvarnstrom’s “OreloB from Bolero,” John Inger’s “Falter” and Orjan Andersson’s “Beethoven’s 32 Variations” — which are not connected narratives, but three modern ballets united by dance rather than plot. The ballet performance is the last of Carolina Performing Arts’ 2011-12 season. Next year’s lineup will feature a host of performances inspired by Igor Stravinsky’s “The Rite of Spring.” Carolina Performing Arts received a $750,000 grant in July
2011 from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to commission works based on “Rite of Spring.” M’Liss Dorrance, co-founder of the Ballet School of Chapel Hill, said she is looking forward to next year’s “Rite of Spring” adaptations. “The original production was so ahead of its time,” she said. “It has been inspiring to many people, choreographers, dancers. It was such a remarkable production that it’s still holding up.” Laurie Yeames, who teaches at the Ballet School of Chapel Hill as well as at UNC, said Carolina Performing Arts’ program has a range of educational opportunities to students interested in the arts — including ballet. In addition to $10 student tickets to all performances, a number of companies who visited during the current season also held master classes with local professional dancers and students. She also said that most European dance companies offer a unique perspective on dance culture. “These companies are universes in themselves, because they all come from different places,” she said. “In Europe, ballet is something different — what they do is not just positions.” As the Goteborg company experiments with both contemporary and classical forms this evening at Memorial Hall, Yeames said the audience can expect anything at the show. “I’m not sure what you’re going to get,” she said. “You have to be open.” Contact the Arts Editor at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Lecture series calls for Mumps outbreak reported health for all humanity
By Grace Raynor
By Chris Harrow
For some, “human rights” and “public health” might seem like buzzwords pulled from a sign in the Pit. But a new campus collaboration is trying to show just how important the intersection of those ideas is to the global community. Monday marked the inaugural address in the UNC Health and Human Rights Lecture Series with a visit from Sofia Gruskin, director of the Program on Global Health and Human Rights at the University of Southern California. The lecture series is the brainchild of Benjamin Meier, a public policy professor at UNC. The Department of Public Policy, the Institute for Global Health and Infectious Diseases and the Center for Bioethics are contributing a total of $10,000 over five years to sponsor the annual series, aimed at bringing a diverse campus together. “I think there was a recognition that human rights have a crucial role in developing global health,” Meier said. “The goal was to …
bring together faculty and students from different disciplines to talk about human rights.” Meier was complimentary when he talked about Gruskin’s importance to the fields of public health and policy, saying that her work “set the path” for the progression of research. Dr. Myron Cohen, director of the global health institute, seemed equally excited when he introduced Gruskin to a crowd of about 300 people in the Tate-Turner-Kuralt Auditorium. “(This event) is way beyond anything I’ve done in 30 years here,” he said. Gruskin talked in detail about her work with governments of various nations. She primarily focused on the way that data on health is needed to affect human rights policies and vice versa, as current policies can be ineffective. “The rhetoric of rights is present (in many nations) … but their translation into anything actable is weak or entirely absent,” she said. Gruskin said that such data is especially necessary as govern-

lead to miscarriages for women in the first trimester of pregnancy and testicular inflammation for men who have completed puberty. If infected, the two students would have been contagious from April 2 to 9. The incubation period is typically 16 to 18 days, but can last up to 25 days. Students are required to have certain immunizations before attending UNC, including two doses for mumps, Covington said. The first dose causes a 90 percent immunity, and adding the second provides 98 percent immunity, she said. “There’s always going to be a small percentage of folks that don’t respond,” Covington said. She said the state requirement for two doses came in response to an outbreak on college campuses in 2006 and 2008. The two-dose requirement began for incoming students in July 2008. Covington stressed that although the cases are not confirmed, students should still pay
close attention for symptoms. Rankin said UNC students should review their immunization history and go to Campus Health Services immediately if they observe symptoms. “Students have been made aware of the symptoms of mumps and instructed to isolate themselves and contact Campus Health or the Health Department immediately if symptoms develop,” she said. Freshman Crystal Austell said she received an email that someone in one of her classes is one of the suspected cases. But she said she hasn’t heard of anyone concerned about the issue. “I’m not worried about it and I don’t know of anybody else that has voiced their opinion about it,” she said. “I don’t know if that’s because of an apathetic attitude or a lack of knowledge.” Contact the University Editor at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Student creates textbook exchange
By Vanessa Voight
Since she first saw them a year ago, the photos from past 37th Frame exhibits have stuck in Spencer Bakalar’s mind. “I wanted to strive to get to the point where I could have my photos submitted and get them up on the wall,” said Bakalar. This year, she achieved her goal. The junior journalism major’s photos will be displayed along with other UNC journalism students’ in the annual 37th Frame exhibit at Focal Point Gallery, which will run through April 30. Now in its 10th year, 37th Frame is UNC’s annual studentrun contest for photojournalism. The exhibit is presented by UNC’s student chapter of the National Press Photographers Association. Submissions for the contest were judged by Justin Cook, a local freelancer, and Shawn Rocco, of The (Raleigh) News & Observer. This year’s “Best in Show” photo was taken by Daniel Turner, a senior environmental studies major. Turner said the photo was taken in the summer Carolina Photojournalism workshop while people were cliff diving at the Tuckertown Reservoir. “I’m really interested in how
UNC places second at ACC championships
By Henry Gargan
On days two and three of the ACC women’s golf championship, No. 6 North Carolina and No. 8 Duke were in a dead heat. Both recorded 595 strokes on Saturday and Sunday. Unfortunately for UNC, it was a three-day tournament. Though both teams played their best rounds Friday, Duke’s players were able to put up enough spectacular rounds to build an imposing 10-shot lead after the first day. The Blue Devils held on throughout the weekend to deny UNC back-to-back conference championships. The Tar Heels finished second with 885 strokes to Duke’s 875 to complete 270 holes of golf at the Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro. “We felt very confident in the possibility of repeating, but it didn’t happen for us,” coach Jan Mann said. “Duke played very well that first day, and we played fairly even with them after that, but it was hard to catch up.” Mann said tough greens and

“If we acknowledge the gender binary as a convenient generalization for low-resolution descriptive purposes, we can still … welcome diversity of gender in people who are not restricted to the binary.”
A supporter, on gender
A new non-discrimination policy
his fall, much of the campus was outraged by Christian a cappella group Psalm 100’s highly publicized dismissal of one of its members, Will Thomason, because he was gay (or rather, according to the group, because he had failed to live in accordance with the Bible.) This outrage was merited — many times over. But any action that merits such a reaction should also be used as an opportunity to improve. In this case, students who care about the rights of student groups to limit membership should do their part to contribute to the process of redefining these rights, which the University has undertaken in the aftermath of the Psalm 100 incident. Like the old non-discrimination policy, the new version will include a clause preventing discrimination based on qualities like gender, race and sexual orientation. But the central question is whether the University will continue to recognize groups who limit membership based on beliefs.
Graduates-to-be, don’t lose sight of the needs of NC
The new policy should foster clarity without prohibiting belief-based groups.
The upside to an outright ban of such groups is obvious: the elimination of situations like the one Psalm 100 presented this fall. There are numerous variations of this policy, generally referred to as an allcomers policy, and they’ve been employed with varying degrees of success by at least a few of UNC’s peer institutions. The drawbacks to such policies, however, are severe: campus groups related to religious or political beliefs would have difficulty complying with the policy and may even be forced to surrender recognition as official UNC student groups, depending on the exact terms of the policy. These groups add much to the intellectual climate of UNC. They bring diversity of thought and opinion and are crucial components of the dialogue on this campus about topics ranging from the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to Obamacare. UNC would be a lesser place without them. The current policy should be tweaked, but it shouldn’t be rewritten to wholly disallow belief-based groups. One of the most frustrating aspects of the Psalm 100 situation was the arbitrariness with which they enforced an already vague constitution (which specified that
its members live in accordance with the teachings of the Bible). By asking belief-based groups to provide a document which would specify their criteria for membership, this arbitrariness and lack of clarity could be avoided in the future. This would both force the group’s leaders to be concrete and specific about what, exactly, they believe and allow incoming members to have complete information about what they are getting themselves into. It might be overkill to make these documents mandatory. But they should be promoted as a way for a group which may at some point feel compelled to dismiss a member to be transparent and proactive about the circumstances under which it would do this. Groups that decline to produce such documents would forfeit this future protection against charges of discrimination if they subsequently dismissed a member. There are clearly many questions yet to be entirely hammered out with regard to this policy, and the committee charged with reviewing it will meet at least once more this semester. It isn’t too late to make your voice heard.
lETTErS TO THE EDiTOr
SB 575 ignores reality of campus workers’ position
TO THE EDITOR: In an article on Monday, Phillip Dixon, who chairs the Personnel and Tenure Committee of the Board of Governors, suggested that University employees protected by the State Personnel Act (SPA) would have nothing to worry about under Senate Bill 575, which proposes a unified personnel system. He stated, “They would be treated the same way faculty are treated.” I strongly implore Mr. Dixon, UNC-system President Thomas Ross and other members of the Board of Governors to consider that therein lies the problem with this proposal. Under the current system, lowwage positions are subject to the SPA, while higher-paid “prestigious” positions — like professors and (administrators) — are exempt from the act. Technically, Ross and professors have fewer legal protections, but they make up for it with the privilege inherent in their social position. It affords them a voice and platform that housekeepers and groundskeepers don’t have. Though not ideal, the current division reflects the social reality that Ross and professors have more clout and bargaining power to negotiate favorable terms for their contracts than the 20,000 employees who help maintain our campuses. The administration can talk all day about how critical housekeepers are to North Carolina’s universities, but in using that well-intentioned sentiment to cover up the elephant in the room — a vague proposal that removes legal protections for those who need them most — does them a disservice. A system that puts Ross and housekeepers in the same category might be more “efficient” — though no analysis has been done — but it is certainly a naive move that ignores the realities of life as a campus worker.

Volunteer at the Carolina Campus Community Garden
TO THE EDITOR: I wish I could have written this letter a long time ago. Unfortunately, I only found out about the wonderful place called the Carolina Campus Community Garden this semester, my last. The CCCG grows vegetables and fruits so that all UNC employees have access to fresh, sustainably grown produce through the shared efforts of staff, students, faculty and local residents. I encourage all of you — whether you only have a few weeks left in Chapel Hill, like me, or you plan on being here for many more years — to come to a workday and check it out. Absolutely no experience is necessary. By volunteering, you will not only get exercise, get tan, meet awesome people and build your resume (applications are open for a summer internship), but you’ll also be part of the CCCG’s incredible mission. Workdays are every Sunday and Wednesday from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. (weather permitting). The garden is conveniently located off Cameron Avenue on Wilson Street and is a short fiveminute walk from campus. There is something for everyone, and plenty of people are happy to help guide you along. If you find that you have a little free time over the next few weeks, please consider volunteering at the Carolina Campus Community Garden. The garden welcomes you
Questions and answers for UNC’s graduate students
TO THE EDITOR: Many articles have recently emphasized issues concerning graduate students, from stipends to tuition hikes. Opinions are being aired, but no information has been provided on what you as UNC graduate students can do to ease the graduate school experience during these tough times. For instance, if you are a teaching assistant, your department is most likely paying your tuition and stipend with money allocated by the graduate school. This money is also used to cover these same expenses for incoming classes. Do you know where this money comes from? Where is the money from the recent tuition hikes going? Due to tuition increases and stagnated stipends, the number of incoming graduate students in the physics department has decreased by 30 percent for the last three years. If fewer graduate students are being admitted or accepting department offers, who will teach the introductory lab courses undergraduates need to graduate? How will departments cope with having fewer TAs? Will class sizes increase or course sections decrease? If class sizes increase, will your stipend increase? These questions are one way to show department chairs and administrators that we are concerned about the state of a gradu-

eniors, let’s talk. Soon (I refuse to acknowledge exactly how soon — that’s how deep in denial I am), we’re going to be dressed in Carolina blue caps and gowns, sitting in Kenan Stadium, surrounded by our friends as our last moments as official UNC undergraduates tick away. I hope you’ve loved your four years here as much as I have. I hope you’ve made a connection with an amazing professor. I hope you’ve shouted yourself hoarse at a sporting event. I hope you’ve met someone who’s completely changed the way you see the world. I hope you’ve rushed Franklin. I hope you’ve laughed, cried, learned, loved and been challenged in this place with the Well and the Bell and the stone walls and the crisp October nights and the smell of dogwoods blooming. I hope you’ve come to understand what being a graduate of the University of North Carolina is means. UNC is so closely tied to the state of North Carolina that it’s nearly impossible to mention one without the other. We have to respect and understand the intensity and mutuality of this relationship, and find where we belong in their greater story. North Carolina could never have risen from its beginnings as a poor, backwards state — the land that separated wealthy Virginia from prosperous South Carolina — to its present position as one of the leaders in the South without UNC. The University has sometimes been the gadfly, pushing for reforms in North Carolina and across the South, and sometimes it’s been the stable institutional structure, providing support and legitimacy to new ideas. Likewise, UNC would never have become a world-class research institution or a public Ivy without the never-ending support it received from North Carolina. For generations, North Carolinians have felt that they have a stake in this University, even if they never set foot in Chapel Hill. UNC encouraged this support by paying special attention to its roots and the problems in its own backyard. Particularly in the first half of the twentieth century, under the leadership of the likes of Edward Kidder Graham, Harry Woodburn Chase, Howard Odum and Frank Porter Graham, the University was constantly looking for new ways and implementing bold programs to serve the state that sustained it so generously.
The Western Front Senior history and political science major from Brevard. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
This emphasis on service became our signature and something for which we became nationally and internationally known. The University is not the same university it was back then. We’ve expanded. We’ve become more prestigious. We don’t receive as much financial support from the state. We no longer have a monopoly on higher education in North Carolina. Our outreach and service has expanded to a more global scale. It’s natural for this university to evolve. Nothing — especially not a 200-year-old institution — will ever stay the same. In this increasingly globalized world, and with our increasingly diverse student body, it is right that we focus on issues all over the world. What we must be sure of is that even in the midst of this change we do not lose sight of the needs of the state that allowed us to become the university that we are. We must not lose sight of our responsibility to uphold this legacy. It is right that we place value on research. It is right that we promote innovation. It is right that we do not let slip our legacy of service. And it is right that we uphold our relationship with the state of North Carolina. We are all so lucky to have a personal stake in this relationship, and we have a personal responsibility to do our part to maintain it. Seniors, everyone is asking us what we’re doing after graduation. Some of us have answers we’re ready to rattle off and some of us try to avoid this question at all costs. Regardless of what your plans for next year are, this challenge from former UNC-system President Bill Friday applies to you: “Every morning a million North Carolinians get up and go to work for wages which leave them below the poverty line so they can pay taxes that finance the education you receive at Carolina. Your job is to figure out how you’re going to pay them back.” Be humbled by that. Be intimidated by that. Then get to work.
