UNC shuts down Hawkeye comeback
tar Heels dispose of iowa in aCC/Big ten Challenge at home
Despite nearly blowing a 15-point halftime lead, the No. 14 North Carolina women’s basketball team held on to defeat No. 18 Iowa 79-67 Thursday night in Carmichael Arena. Led by 34 points from a dominating performance from senior guard Italee Lucas, the Tar Heels were able to hold off a sharp-shooting but less athletic Hawkeyes team to get the win in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge. North Carolina came out roaring as WOMen’S its swarming defense forced turnovers baSKetball and missed shots to help push the Tar iowa 67 Heels to an 11-0 lead in fewer than UNC 79 four minutes. Later in the half, they extended their lead to 20 with a 13-0 run. Even with the big lead, coach Sylvia Hatchell knew the Hawkeyes had the potential to come back. “We started off strong and got up by 20,” Hatchell said. “But I kept telling the players, ‘Hey, look this is a great team. They can shoot the ball. They’re not going to go away. We’ve got to stay to the course.’” The Tar Heels went into the half with a 44-29 lead, but Iowa came out shooting in the second half and quickly closed the lead thanks to the 3-point shot. The Hawkeyes made seven of their 11 trifectas in the second half while attempting a school-record 37 on the night. With the 3-ball and use of a frustrating zone defense, Iowa brought the score within one on two separate occasions in the second frame. “In the second half we were flat to start with and we can’t be doing that,” Hatchell said. “We’ve got to come out with intensity and execute.” Both times the Hawkeyes got within a point, Lucas saved the day hitting huge 3-pointers over the Iowa zone. With just more than five minutes remaining, Lucas hit her sixth and final 3-pointer of the day and then added a smooth fast-break layup after an Iowa turnover to give the Tar Heels a six-point lead they would ride out for the victory. With starting forward and team captain Jessica Breland not playing up to her standard, Hatchell looked to Laura Broomfield for a boost in the paint. Breland grabbed 10 rebounds as the starter but went a poor 1-for9 from the field. Broomfield picked up the slack, though, by making the most of her 20 minutes coming off the bench. She racked up 12 vital points on 5-for-11 shooting while pulling down 11 total rebounds, including five offensive boards. The performance was Broomfield’s first double-double of the season. Even though her team nearly gave up a huge lead, Hatchell was happy with how they responded to the test. “I thought we showed a lot of character to not get too rattled and to come back and do what we needed to do,” Hatchell said. “We dug deep when we had to.” Other than Lucas’ huge offensive night, it was the Tar Heels defense that keyed UNC’s ability to first get, then hold onto, their big lead. The team had six blocks and eight steals, includ-

North Carolina needed an answer. As their 20-point lead slowly dwindled to just two, the Tar Heels realized the visiting Iowa Hawkeyes weren’t going away easily. The slow, methodical comeback of the Hawkeyes had left the Tar Heels in a six-minute scoring drought and they needed something to bring them alive. Enter Italee Lucas. Open in the left corner, Lucas hauled in a pass from Tierra Ruffin-Pratt and knocked down the baseline three. Two possessions later, point guard Cetera DeGraffenreid found Lucas open in front of the Tar Heel bench. As she hoisted her second three in as many possessions, the whole bench rose to its feet, hands in the air. Swish. As Lucas held her followthrough all the way down the

court, it was obvious that the night belonged to her. “Italee made some big shots, we ran a couple plays to give her some looks and she knocked them down,” UNC coach Sylvia Hatchell said. Big shots might be an understatement. Every time Iowa seemed poised to take the lead, Lucas had an answer. When the Hawkeyes made another run to bring the score to 61-60, the senior countered with another three followed immediately by a breakaway layup. The 34-point performance left Iowa coach Lisa Bluder without an explanation. “Lucas is a terrific player” Bluder said. “She’s even better than I thought she would be on film.” The tall and physical Hawkeyes were not giving away easy layups.

Company Carolina is launching its season with Elton John. Tonight, the Union Cabaret will feature the community-based theater group’s performance of “Aida.” It will be the first show of the calendar year for the company, and the first since its November 2009 production of the popular rock musical “RENT” in the Forest Theatre. Despite going more than a year without putting on a performance, the company remains optimistic. “It’s definitely been a rough year for us, but it’s really exciting for us to be putting on such a large musical in the Cabaret,” said producer Stephanie Waaser. The spring 2010 production of “Cats” was unexpectedly canceled in the last week of rehearsal due to a production rights conflict, and this fall’s “Once on this Island” was pulled in its final week as well. Former UNC student Johanna Burwell, the lead actress in “Aida,” said that the cast is poised to put on what they feel will be a fun yet long overdue performance.

Cast memebers of “aida,” Company Carolina’s production launching tonight and running through the weekend participate in a dress rehearsal on thursday night.
“It’s always exciting to lead in a show, and being Company Carolina, to put on the first show of our season just makes it that much better,” Burwell said. The company was able to secure the Cabaret for the performance. Though Waaser said it was not their first choice, the Cabaret offers many traditional stage aspects.

“It’s been a huge challenge, but I think that it’s ultimately going to work out,” said production director Jordi Coats. “My goal of showing emotion and how the characters change, going from point A to point B through the show, will be so much more clear for the audience to see.”

Though local government is exploring moving a public library to a University Mall space currently occupied by Dillard’s, the retailer is showing no signs of going anywhere. “At the moment we don’t have an agreement with Dillard’s for any kind of exit for them,” said Peter DeLeon, general manager of the mall. “This whole process is really at its infancy. “If Dillard’s says no, then it probably won’t move forward.” The Chapel Hill Public Library was initially slated for an 18-month expansion project, with the facility to be temporarily relocated this month to a vacant storefront in the mall while construction took place. Those plans were put on hold at a Nov. 22 Chapel Hill Town Council meeting after Madison Marquette, the company that owns the mall, offered to house the library permanently. The move could bring more foot traffic to the mall but is contingent upon Dillard’s agreeing to leave the space. Malinda Gormsen, manager of Dillard’s,

said she would have expected to hear about a move —should it happen — from the corporate office first. Gormsen said she has not been contacted by Dillard’s officials about relocating or closing. “We heard about it through the paper,” she said. “We don’t own the building, so it’s not in our hands.” The company’s stocks have increased steadily since Aug. 16, indicating that the brand is strong. But Mayor Pro Tem Jim Ward said he had heard the national Dillard’s leadership was not interested in investing in Chapel Hill. “So that tells me they have some misgivings about the viability of it,” he said. Madison Marquette started exploring the option of permanently housing the library because of the added benefits it would bring to the other retailers in the mall, wrote Jay Lask, managing director of investments for the company, in a statement. But the concept is only in preliminary stages. DeLeon said he thought the move would be excellent for the mall and for Chapel Hill. “The library has 1,200 unique daily visitors,” he said.

Two women caught with extra baggage


From staFF and wire reports


wo women were arrested on suspicion of shoplifting after they were caught trying to smuggle more than $2,000 worth of merchandise out of an Oklahoma T.J. Maxx store — under the rolls of fat on their stomachs and underneath their breasts. “These two individuals were actually concealing them in areas of their body where excess skin was, underneath their chest area and up around their armpits,” Officer James Hamm told a local television station. The items they tried to steal included four pairs of boots, three pairs of jeans, gloves and a wallet. One of the women was carrying a knife in her purse to cut off the tags on the stolen goods.

UNC-system funding critiqued maybegraduation-based model suggested
future, Hannah Gage, chairwoman for the UNC-system Board of Governors, said in an e-mail that the board will be discussing changes to the funding model at its meeting in January. UNC-system President Erskine Bowles is working with chancellors to strengthen a proposal that would tie funding to graduation and retention rates instead of enrollment growth, she said. “Our new approach is to focus on performance, not growth, and that shift will be reflected in the way that campuses are funded,” she said. In a written response to the report, Jeff Davies, chief of staff for UNC-system President Erskine Bowles, said although improvements could be made to the enrollment funding model, the projections were as accurate as possible. “There is always going to be vari-

study points to importance of heat in life’s formation
New research at UNC suggests that the amount of time required for life to evolve on a warm planet is shorter than previously thought. The group studied the speed of chemical reactions that take place without the help of enzymes — sophisticated molecules that quicken reactions. In these reactions, temperature makes a huge difference, the team found. In one case, raising the temperature from 25 degrees Celsius to 100 degrees Celsius, increased the speed of the reaction 10 million fold. The lead investigator for the group was Richard Wolfenden, professor of biochemistry and biophysics. The findings are published in the Dec. 1 edition of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Playmakers to make over mozart production
n.c. Symphony to perform with cast
by carson blacKwelder
staff writer

Mozart is getting a makeover. PlayMakers Repertory Company is reviving their 2008 production of Peter Shaffer’s “Amadeus” — a fictional biography of the famed classical composer — but this time, the company will join forces with the North Carolina Symphony. “One of the biggest comments I heard after (the 2008 production) was how people wished they could have heard more of Mozart’s music,” said Joseph Haj, PlayMakers’ artistic director, who will make a guest appearance in the play as the emperor. Shaffer allowed Haj to edit the script considerably, leaving room - From staff and wire reports for, as Haj calls them, “those glori-

ous musical passages.” During the year and a half of preparation, Haj approached the N.C. Symphony for help. More than 50 members of the N.C. Symphony will take part in the production, playing music as a part of the play’s development. “The collaboration so far has been really thrilling,” said Grant Llewellyn, music director for the symphony. T h e p a r t n e r s h i p b e tw e e n PlayMakers and the N.C. Symphony saw two separate entities practicing and preparing individually. This week, the two parts were brought together. “I’m not sure if a show with this type of combination of music and theater has been done before — this way anyway,” Llewellyn said. PlayMakers’ regular and UNC dramatic arts professor Ray Dooley will reprise his role of Antonio Salieri, Mozart’s scheming rival.

Dooley previously played the role in 1985 and 2008, but he has yet to play in a musically integrated production of this sort. “To visit the character again while it is still fresh in my mind is a great joy and a great gift,” Dooley said. Joining Dooley on the stage at Raleigh’s Meymandi Concert Hall will be television actor Michael Urie — known for his role on ABC’s cancelled comedy “Ugly Betty” — who will play the titular classical genius. “I’ve always, like always, wanted to play Mozart,” Urie said in an e-mail. Urie was brought into the production with help from his friend Brendon Fox, who is also a director for PlayMakers. “I listened to lots of Mozart’s music, which I’ve long been familiar with as a former French horn player in my high school days,” Urie said. But Urie is aware of the big shoes to fill in such a famous role, he said.

see “aMadeUs” Time: 8 p.m. Fri. and Sat, 3 p.m. Sun. Location: Meymadi Concert Hall, 2 East South Street, Raleigh Info: www.playmakersrep.org

“Playing a famous part like Mozart, that so many great actors have tackled is daunting, but thrilling,” Urie said. “I get to put my own stamp on a timeless classic.” There is a deeper meaning behind Llewellyn decision to collaborate with PlayMakers — even though he is excited to play Mozart’s music, he said. “Mozart can come across as very vain, but the substance behind the music can sometimes get lost,” Llewellyn said. “So this was a fantastic opportunity to do justice to the man behind the music.”

C . (MCT)— On Friday morning, when the Labor Department reports November employment numbers, they’re likely to show strong hiring for the second consecutive month. Economists hope this is a return to something approaching normalcy after a brutal three-year stretch for the U.S. economy. One big reason for optimism is Wednesday’s ADP National Employment Report, which showed that the private sector added 93,000 jobs in November. More than half of those jobs — 54,000 — were in small firms with 49 employees or fewer, a good sign that the recovery is strengthening. “It certainly is something that jumped out at not only

I was really heartened by those (new) numbers. It’s only one month, and it doesn’t make a trend, but it’s heartening for sure.” Last month the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported stronger than expected 151,000 jobs gained in October, and analysts expect a similar report on Friday. Consensus forecasts expect 150,000 to 170,000 additional jobs for November.

ed Camp, executive director of the artsCenter in Carrboro hopes to get students interested in classes at the artsCenter. Many students take advantage of the classes if they cannot get into art classes at the University.

artscenter highlighting benefits to UNc students
Goal to raise awareness of program o≠erings

ivory coast elects opposition candidate european union Gbagbo’s camp rejected the blacklists airports NAIROBI, Kenya (MCT) —
Ivory Coast’s opposition candidate Alassane Ouattara has won a violence-marred presidential run-off election with 54 percent of the vote, the West African nation’s electoral body said Thursday. However, the constitutional council, controlled by an ally of President Laurent Gbagbo, said that since the electoral commission missed its Wednesday deadline for announcing the results, it did not have the right to proclaim a winner. result, saying it would wait for the ruling of the council, which said it would examine the documentation before issuing a decision. Results had been delayed as Gbagbo disputed returns in several regions in Ouattara strongholds, saying supporters had been intimidated and harassed there. Ouattara, speaking after the announcement, said he was planning a unity government that would draw from a wide spectrum of political parties and civil society. BRUSSELS (MCT) — The European Union is to push nonmember countries to improve their security screening of EU-bound air freight, including by blacklisting airports deemed unsafe, German officials said Thursday. The EU has been panicked in recent weeks by the discovery of a series of parcel bombs, which entered the bloc’s air-freight system from both inside and outside Europe.

Class registration may have been a disappointment for students with a casual interest in the arts. With most of UNC’s arts classes closed to non-majors, some find it nearly impossible to pursue a newfound passion for art. But the ArtsCenter of Carrboro is offering another solution. Its recently launched membership drive emphasizes the benefits of an ArtsClub membership to students. Though located less than a mile from campus, the center is virtually unknown to UNC students. This concerned Exec utive Director Ed Camp. “They’re not aware that we’re here,” said Camp, who has been the director since 2009. After a steep decrease in active members — from 1,500 nearly 14 years ago to a mere 200 today — the ArtsCenter is refocusing its efforts to attract new ArtsClub participants. The ArtsClub offers various incentives — like early seating and discount ticket prices for

productions — to members paying dues of $75 per year. Through ArtsClub, students are also eligible for discounts on classes, which may provide a sufficient alternative to University art courses. Offered through the center’s ArtSchool, classes range from glass bead making to ethnic vegetarian cooking. ArtsCenter classes hold strong appeal for students who would like to hone their creative talents without majoring in the arts, Camp said. “Our mission is really to inspire creativity,” Camp said. He said that rather than trying to train working artists, the ArtsCenter is a place for people “from age 2 to 92” to connect with their inner artist. “One of our purposes is to incubate talent and to inspire people to reconnect to a part of their creative core that they’ve forgotten about,” Camp said. Senior Alex Hill, who has been a volunteer since her sophomore year, said the center has a lot to offer to students.

“The staff and the heads of the programs here are so passionate about what they’re doing,” she said. “It’s inspirational seeing them work together and work so hard to connect people in our community to the arts.” Jeri Lynn Schulke, director of the center’s theater program, ArtsCenter Stage, describes the push to involve the University community as being consistent with the ArtsCenter’s long-standing goals. “I think the main mission as a theater is to represent the community,” Schulke said. Schulke said that the ArtsCenter is trying to work more directly with students. Two UNC students, Zach Alexander and Sam Smith, aided in the ArtsCenter’s upcoming production of “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.” Camp said he knows that most students cannot easily afford to contribute to arts programs. “The student population of UNC is not aware that they sit in one of the largest art communities in the country,” Camp said. He said he hopes to soon create a membership option for students. “Always, if students really want to do something, they need to give me a call or an e-mail,” he said.

A place to call their own. Sunday school classes. Somewhere they can celebrate religious holidays. Muslim students throughout the area said they are looking forward to this and more as they anticipate the opening of Chapel Hill’s first mosque, which will open its doors in coming months. “Speaking as a Muslim student, we want a place that’s always there where spirituality is manifested,” said Muslim Students Association member Relwan Onikoyi. Onikoyi said UNC students are participating in the process by attending Chapel Hill Islamic Society meetings and giving feedback on what they want in a mosque. The society purchased a building on Stateside Drive, off Martin

Luther King Jr. Boulevard, in late summer with money the group receives from member dues and fundraising, said society member and Chapel Hill resident Abdullah Antepli. Antepli is also a Muslim chaplain at Duke University. The society, which has been working to secure a mosque in the area for 12 years, is collaborating with town government and other local religious institutions to go through the necessary procedures, he said. According to the five pillars of Islam, active Muslims must pray five times each day. The Muslim Students Association has a room in the Student Union that members can pray in, but it’s only open on weekdays from noon to 5 p.m. “Right now, we kind of just pray whenever and wherever we can,” Onikoyi said. “If I’m in the library, I pray in the library. If I’m in the Union, I pray there. “It’s totally fine most of the time to just end up praying wherever I am, but it would be nice to have a place to go to be with a congregation.” Onikoyi said the new mosque will be open every day for students, and it will be especially important for the Friday and congregational prayer. Association President Sana Khan said the mosque will provide a place for Muslim students

“Muslims and even non-Muslims could come together in this place to discuss and learn. ”

to gather. “(A mosque) establishes a sense of community,” she said. “Right now the closest mosque is in Durham or even farther out would be in Raleigh.” “It would be a uniting factor for the community.” Antepli said he thinks the mosque will be a blessing to the whole community. “We really look forward to being able to have classes on the weekend, Sunday school class for children,” he said. “That’s a huge need.” Onikoyi said that while opening a worship center requires going through a lot of red tape, it will be worth the effort. “Chapel Hill residents want a place to go for religious support,” he said. “They want to develop a community for themselves, to be able to have discussion circles and to learn and worship together. “Muslims and even non-Muslims could come together in this place to discuss and learn.” Contact the City Editor at citydesk@unc.edu.

To dream the possible DREAM
his week, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., re-introduced the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act, which would afford children of undocumented immigrants who arrived in the United States before the age of 16 and have no criminal record the chance to attend college or serve in the military. After a 10-year period of “conditional non-immigrant” status, paying a fine, a rigorous background check and a medical exam, they will have the opportunity to obtain permanent legal residency. Opponents say the DREAM Act is amnesty. It is not. As a permanent resident, you may not vote or hold certain government jobs. Moreover, you may still be deported at any time if you break the law. The bill even clarifies that those who qualify will not be eligible for health care benefits or federal scholarships such as Pell grants. What it is, however, is a tremendous opportunity for the United States to capitalize on bright, young, hard-working people who call this country their home. Most agree; even prominent conservatives. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates wrote, “The DREAM Act represents an opportunity to expand [the recruiting] pool, to the advantage of military recruiting and readiness.” Former Secretary of State Colin Powell said, “Without immigrants America would be like Europe or Japan with an aging population and no young people to come in and take care of it. We have to educate our immigrants. The DREAM Act is one way we can do this.” The editorial boards of more than 46 national periodicals, liberal and conservative, have endorsed the passage of the DREAM Act, including the Wall Street Journal and the Washington Post. Yet just this week, Senate Republicans began circulating a letter promising to stop any proposed legislation until Democrats agree to extend Bush-era tax cuts. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, who in the past actually co-sponsored DREAM, now say they will not vote for it. Courageous students across the country have participated in sit-ins, hunger strikes and acts of civil disobedience to encourage passage of DREAM, several in North Carolina, some even from UNC. Many undocumented students have been arrested and some are even facing deportation. But as one DREAMer recently reflected, “the sacrifice of one is worth the dreams of many.” Will we punish innocent children for the acts of their parents? Will we condemn them to a life in the shadows with no education, no hope of employment and no ability to serve their country? It’s time for you to decide. Pick up the phone right now and dial 866-587-3023, ask to speak with your Senator, and tell them to support the DREAM Act. Call again and speak with your Representative. A vote may be happening early next week. This is an investment in our nation’s most valuable resource: its children. There’s no room for indifference, only for unified action. In the words of John Lennon, “A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality.” It’s time to make the dreams of millions of America’s youth a reality. It’s time to pass the DREAM Act.

We can’t afford to raise taxes in this economy
TO THE EDITOR: It seems as though the Obama administration and Democrats still don’t get it when it comes to taxes. All of a sudden they are fiscal hawks, saying we can’t afford to continue the Bush tax rates for those top income earners who simply don’t need them. The thing we cannot afford is to raise taxes on anyone during these uncertain economic times. Those supposedly evil rich people have made their wealth via entrepreneurship and risk taking, and should not be punished for succeeding in the marketplace. Those at the top have significantly more flexibility with their wealth and work, and seizing more of their earnings will result in them working and investing less. This leads to an overall downturn in government revenue. More than half of business earnings are reported on individual rather than corporate returns. This means that the “rich” the Democrats want to go after are the businesses that create jobs in this country. Moreover, many of these top earners are angel investors, who provide capital for businesses to start up. It seems like discouraging this investment is the opposite of what we would do in these hard economic times. Democrats need to understand that we have a spending problem, not a tax problem.

Time to liberate liquor


Move to regulate 190-proof liquors signals alcohol regulation moving in the wrong direction
long for the Mecklenburg ABC board to stop selling 190-proof grain alcohol and the state of North Carolina at large followed suit soon after. N.C. ABC stores will continue to sell a watered down 151proof version of Everclear, but Diesel is gone for good. But what the ban really does is call attention to North Carolina’s antiquated liquor control laws. N.C. is one of only 19 “control states” that still regulate alcohol at the state and county level. Since 1935, the state has held a monopoly over the sale of liquor and it is time for a change. The market should dictate what kinds of alcohol are in the stores, not the state. And it’s not fair that the state, through its monopoly power, can dictate the products its citizens can buy. Authorities say this ban is a good idea because it will cut down on binge drinking, but we doubt it will make a big difference. The CEO of the Mecklenburg county ABC control board agrees. In his own words: “I still think 150proof is awfully strong … I don’t think this is going to curb people drinking as heavily.” North Carolina should reevaluate its alcohol policies and move towards less state control. Recent actions suggest it’s moving in the opposite direction, and it’s time to change course.

f you were hoping to make “PJ” for your next party, you are going to have to adjust your recipe. This week Everclear and Diesel joined Four Loko on the list of alcoholic beverages that are banned in North Carolina. In the aftermath of Four Loko it was a politically convenient time to ban more things. But, if anything, bureaucrats should be liberalizing the state’s already ridiculous drinking laws. Good luck with that. The Mecklenburg ABC control board noticed that a high number of 190-proof grain alcohol purchases were occurring at ABC stores close to college campuses. It didn’t take

Biofuel backup


Delay of wood pellets shouldn’t shake conviction yet
logistical considerations were involved in this decision, and it is a sound one. Carolina Wood Pellets, the University’s would-be supplier of biofuel, is a new company within a nascent industry. Ray DuBose, director of Energy Services, said that as various organizations make a concerted effort to become carbon-neutral (and UNC is on the vanguard of this effort), the industry evolves to meet this demand. It is a logical argument, and one that will hopefully prove true. Naturally, however, there are a few kinks that have to be worked out along the way. According to DuBose, the cause of the delay was a simple question of how to get the fuel where it needed to be. Chapel Hill can’t handle the tractortrailer capacity needed to transport UNC’s 500-ton shipment, and Carolina Wood Pellets wasn’t able to ship by rail until recently, when colder weather had already set in. And the colder the weather is, the smaller the margin for error in an a relatively untested method of obtaining energy for heat. We hope naysayers will consider these complicating factors before accusing Energy Services of defaulting on a promise into which it has in fact put an enormous amount of time, thought, and, well, energy.

t is vital that UNC meet its goal of becoming coalfree by 2020. This is a tall order. No doubt, concerned community members, students and faculty will be hankering for concrete benchmarks by which to measure progress at each step along the way. And in efforts to retain public faith and maintain good communication, Energy Services should do its utmost to lay out and meet such milestones. However, it is entirely premature to deduce from the three-month delay of wood pellet testing that Energy Services is not committed to reaching its goal before the decade is out. A number of complex

‘senior’ label perpetuates a geriatric stereotype
TO THE EDITOR: In r e s p o n s e t o L a u r e n Refinetti’s response (“Words create meaning: Replace ‘freshman’ label,” Dec. 1) to Saffa Khan’s column (“Why I’m not a ‘first-year’ student,” Nov. 30): You never say or even imply this, but you, like most, probably think that the call for the use of the term “fourthyear” instead of “senior” is “irrational,” but you are thinking too narrowly. The impact of geriatric terms comes not from the sheer offensiveness of one word but in the combined effect. As our culture continues to discuss the workings of “senior citizens” and “senior associate project managers,” we are perpetuating a limited view of what people in those positions should look like. What little girl dreams of growing up to be an old lady? The words we use impact our archetypal definitions of those terms, and thus create limitations on what we believe we are capable of doing. If we continue to discuss our lives with superannuated terms serving as the age neutral, we will keep perpetuating the climate of inequality. No, changing the way we speak alone will not fix the global problem of discrimination and mistreatment of the elderly based on age, but yes, we can make a difference in our community just by changing one word — senior.

Bullying in the Internet age
t least when we were younger, bullies at school would be mean to your face. These days, that iota of integrity is gone from bullying, thanks to Twitter and social media at large. Recent stories, one in which a gay student was harassed over Twitter (by two UNC alumni no less), are a stark reminder of just how base bullying has become. They also remind us that even a place that takes pride in its progressive ideals can have vivid outliers. “With great power, comes great responsibility,” goes the cliche. Maybe it’s said so much


A force for good can also be used for acute evil
that no one pays attention. But there are two distinct qualities about the age of the Internet that are a boon as much as a burden: scope and severity. First is scope, and Twitter has mastered it. There are about 195 million registered users with about 95 million Tweets per day. In theory, a Tweet can reach virtually everyone in the Twitter network. Almost certainly, it will reach a large fraction of the local network just by virtue of degrees of separation. Second is severity. The disparity in digital versus analog behavior is so acute that it has it’s own psychological term: the “online disinhibition effect.” Even in a public environment like Twitter, people act as if shielded from the impact of their sentiments. In a way, they are. They don’t have to ever look at the victim — empathy isn’t even a consideration. No one should be a Luddite. But social media presents a challenge that we must all face if we are to truly embrace it. This isn’t just about merely managing an online presence, for the line between online and reality is becoming too blurred. This is about thinking critically about how you manage your interaction with the world, period.

The fastbreak points that bolstered the Tar Heels in the first half were nowhere to be found. Though Lucas knew her team needed her, it was their energy that bolstered her scoring explosion. “We feed off each other,” Lucas said. “Sometimes I see my teammates getting frustrated and I know they look toward me for that motivational push and I feed off them too. If something like that gets our team going, that’s what I’m striving for.” Lucas has been the offensive catalyst for her team from the very beginning. Last season her streaky 3-point shooting showed in her .344 average. But this season, her scoring average of 20 a game and .462 3-point percentage has buoyed the team to a bevy of blowout wins and an 8-0 record. But DeGraffenreid believes it is her focus, not her scoring acumen that makes her invaluable to the team. “Today in the huddle she was getting everybody focused and ready to go and you just know that she is going to go out there and be focused,” DeGraffenreid said. “She hit those threes back-to-back and kept us in the game. After that I know that everybody just knew, ‘OK we got to get ready and we have to go.’” Lucas’ torching of the nets is something DeGraffenreid is accustomed to by now. “Nothing new,” she said. Contact the Sports Editor at sports@unc.edu.

ing three from guard Cetera DeGraffenreid. When Iowa got close, DeGraffenreid knew the defense would have to step up, and her steal in the final five minutes led to Lucas’ layup that sealed the game. “I just knew at any point they could get back into the game, so I knew what we were going to do on the offensive end was going to come from what we did on the defense,” DeGraffenreid said. “Whether that was from getting in their face and not letting them shoot threes or getting stills and getting the ball out for a fast break, just whatever we need to do to get that score back up.” Hatchell was happy to escape with a victory against the Big Ten favorite that she called a “great team.” “We’re going to continue to get better and that’s the biggest thing,” she said.

Set in Ancient Egypt, the musical revolves around the struggle of a Nubian princess trying to decide between her duty to her people and the oppressor with whom she’s fallen in love. “There are more levels to the love triangle than you typically see in a lot of shows,” Coats said. The two-act musical, based on the historical Italian opera of the same name, will feature live music written by pop legend Elton John and Academy Award-winning lyricist, Tim Rice. “One of the main reasons I chose the show is that the music is so eclectic,” Coats said. “There are just so many different genres that are just so much fun to work on and listen to.” Coats said the show is defined by the turmoil that befalls Aida, and the excitement lies in how she is able to handle the pressure. “I really want (the audience) to see Aida as very empowered, but Contact the Sports Editor also intensely conflicted,” Coats at sports@unc.edu. said. “I’m trying to expose a cer-

tain balance between her pain and passion.” In addition to the personal issues Aida faces, the show addresses diversity on a much grander scale. “I’m really glad we have such a multicultural cast to help show unity and how that translates to our ability to attain our goals,” Burwell said. “It’s really powerful.” The company hopes that the 24-song musical, laced with several power ballads, will usher them into a strong and consistent season. “The music is meant for a much larger space — it might be a little loud, but it’ll be fun and make for a great study break,” Waaser said. “We’re really excited to be able to get this done.”

“That would create more traffic for the center.” Town Manager Roger Stancil has formed four teams to determine whether the library proposal is “too good to be true,” he wrote in an e-mail to the town council. The teams will address the business side, the design side, the economic ramifications of and public participation in the potential move.

Summer Language Immersion
The Chinese Immersion Program offers students an excellent opportunity to immerse fully in the native language environment and also in Chinese culture. The program attempts to recreate as much as possible the immersion experience a student would have if he or she were traveling and studying in China, where students would associate language with the culture. Students can complete CHIN 101, the introductory language course, and CHIN 150, a culture course, in the five-week immersion session. Then in second session they could take the second language level to continue their language instruction.

North Carolina swimmer Colin Bridier’s days as a Tar Heel might be numbered, but the French exchange student has already ensured that his name will not quickly be forgotten. He’s nabbed three first-place finishes in two dual meets, helped his team to an undefeated 4-0 record and slashed senior teammate Vinny Pryor’s school record in the 100-yard breaststroke. During Bridier’s first few months in America, the jet-lagged athlete has been bogged down with frequent globe-trotting and an NCAA eligibility conflict — but it hasn’t stopped Bridier from making his mark in his new environment. The name and accomplishment of UNC’s first exchange student turned swimming standout will soon adorn the wall of records in the Koury Natatorium, replacing those of his teammate’s feat from earlier this year. But Pryor has no hard feelings. “I look at him as just being a part of the team, and I was really happy for him when he broke it,” Pryor said. “Everyone is just really excited that he’s here and excited that he’s really talented … because it brings a lot to our team, and it makes us better.”

welcome to america
Third-year students at Bridier’s French university, Sciences Po Paris, must study abroad. For the swimmer who had never been to the United States, a top American university and a good swimming program had to be a package deal. In Januar y, Bridier’s university informed him that he would be attending UNC-Chapel Hill in the fall, and the dual French and Swiss citizen wasted no time contacting swimming coach Rich DeSelm. After looking at Bridier’s times and learning of his previous experience, DeSelm knew the exchange student would be a prized addition to the Tar Heel squad. Just two months into the season, Bridier has already proved his worth. Bridier impressed DeSelm with both his swimming talents, as well as his presence among his teammates, as he raised the level of competition within the men’s team. “It’s double-edged,” DeSelm said. “They embrace Colin being here because he adds a lot of positives to the team, but on the other hand, our guys are very competitive. So for some people, he may be perceived as someone who potentially could take my spot.” While Bridier has seen instant success in America, he was forced to adjust to an unfamiliar style of training and competing. Affected by shorter, single-day dual

Colin Bridier is gunning for the North Carolina record books while he still has time in Chapel Hill. The French foreign exchange student is grappling with the decision to return to UNC next year. He’s already broken one teammate’s 100-yard breaststroke record despite sitting out the first two meets due to compliance and eligibility issues with the NCAA.
meets and a more intense practice routine, Bridier said he has seen improvements from increasing his workouts to nine fastpaced practices a week at UNC from the six per week he practiced in Europe. “Every day you have something fast. Every day you have to kick your ass,” Bridier said. “If we had a fast thing every day (in France), people would go on strike, I think.” not a lot. I didn’t think it would be a problem so I just declared it.” But when an interrogation immediately followed, Bridier quickly grasped the stringency of the policy. “They were like, ‘Oh okay, where did you get this money? Who gave you that money? Was it in cash?’” he said. “And I was like, ‘Oh, shit.’” Due to the complication, Bridier had to sit out the first two meets of the season. But on Oct. 29, he found his way back to the pool — his home away from home. In his first meet, Bridier won both the 100- and 200-yard breaststroke events and helped UNC beat Maryland. An unfamiliar regulation and culture aside, Bridier’s talent proved to be one thing that remained constant even on a different continent. experienced a team environment but none quite like that of the Tar Heels. “You’re a champion in your head and you do your stuff, but we don’t have all these phrases in the locker room and it’s more individual,” Bridier said. “Team is really important here. That’s something I’ve never had before … and it really motivates me.” While it took some time to fully integrate himself into UNC’s family-like atmosphere, Bridier is grateful for the support of his teammates and his newfound friendships. In mid-November, Bridier flew to Switzerland to qualify for European championships. Keeping in mind his extended family at UNC, he returned bearing gifts. “He came back with a bunch of chocolate,” Pryor said. “He came in the locker room with it, put it down and was just letting everyone take their pick. A bunch of us thought that was really cool.”


a world of difference
Bridier has adapted well to swimming overseas, but his transition wasn’t without its share of challenges. Before being eligible to swim for UNC, Bridier had to complete complicated NCAA compliance paperwork that differs from those given to freshmen recruits. Intercollegiate swimming and a governing body like the NCAA doesn’t exist in Europe, so the concept of filing for amateurism was foreign to Bridier. “I had earned money (for swimming) in Europe and I didn’t know it was forbidden here,” Bridier said. “It’s like 200 bucks, it’s

Netherlands, and the proud athlete hopes to qualify for the 2012 Olympic Trials. But in addition to his international aspirations, Bridier is also devoted to excelling as a Tar Heel. “He’s absolutely dedicated to doing well in school and swimming, and that’s a great example,” DeSelm said. “I just wish that he could be around longer ... he is certainly doing everything that he can to prove himself here and benefit our program.” Bridier said that UNC coaches have asked him to stay at school for his final year of college, and although he is still unsure, Bridier is keeping his options open. He’s more than 4,000 miles from home, but Bridier might not be ready to say au revoir just yet. “I have so many options, but with the result I had (a few weeks ago), I think it would be great for me to stay one more year,” Bridier said. “I’m swimming fast, so I don’t know why I would change.” Contact the Sports Editor at sports@unc.edu.

The DTH SportsFriday staff and one celebrity compete to pick the winners of the biggest ACC and national college football games each week.
in the final week of dTh football picks of the week, glorious week eight, assistant sports editor mark Thompson wiped the floor with everyone. The holly springs native went 7-1 last week, only missing the nebraska-Texas a&m. Thompson was the only panelist to pick n.c. state against Unc. editor-in-chief sarah frier went an impressive 6-2 and holds a one game edge against Thompson in our final week of picks. frier missed the mark on the Unc and nebraska games and somehow is still on top of the panel. sports editor Jonathan Jones and assistant megan walsh both went 4-4 to drop to 41-23 overall after being just a game away

University editor C. Ryan Barber swears he is the best at picking college football games. let’s finally see what he’s got in the final week of dTh picks of the week.

north carolina’s guard play has struggled this season. poor shooting and passing has plagued the Tar heels. Unc has a good deal of youth in its backcourt, but so does kentucky. The wildcats point guard, brandon knight, is only a freshman. The difference? Uk’s guards are scoring. edge: Kentucky with forward Tyler Zeller in the paint — unless he’s in foul trouble again — and John henson playing at a high level, north carolina will have some serious size to contend with Terrence Jones. Jones is averaging slightly better than 20 and 10. edge: Push one thing north carolina has going for it this season is a deep bench. Though the starting lineup is set for now, the rotation is still fluid. kendall marshall, reggie bullock, Justin knox and leslie mcdonald are all contributing off the bench. kentucky only runs about an eight-man rotation. edge: unC Unc looks like a team full of players still trying to define their roles and could look very different in march. The wildcats are shooting for a title this year, because, well, this is the only year they will be in college. but expect a close game nonetheless. edge: Kentucky


editor c. ryan barber has stepped up to take over picks this week. barber has professional sports writing experience and isn’t afraid to let folks know about it. he refuses to go on a limb with any of his picks, so don’t be surprised when he goes 6-2 this week but has no dignity to take back home to pennsylvania.

The 3rd annual Louie Awards UNc hopes to spare the drama


he leaves have changed, and the football season is wrapping up. It can only mean one thing — another edition of the annual Louie Awards. This one comes with quite a bit of consternation, because despite my best efforts, it seems as if the University will definitely not let me redo my senior year. Which means, you guessed it, these are the third and final Louie Awards. Without any further ado, let’s get to it. The Bill Gates award for “visionary leadership at someone else’s expense” goes to ACC Commissioner John Swofford. While the rest of the country watched elite and not-so-elite conferences cannibalize each other, Swofford’s ACC stood pat. That’s because Swofford had already finished his meal some three years ago — reducing the Big East to an eight-way pillow fight and furnishing his own conference with its powerhouses: Miami, Virginia Tech and Boston College. At the time, some purists bemoaned Swofford’s shameless grab at a conference championship game, but now he deserves his due. While the rest of the conferences scramble to hold themselves together, the ACC is the stronger for it. The Jenga award for “one small piece bringing down the whole tower” goes to Marvin Austin and the rest of the Tar Heels. When Austin and the other seniors announced they were returning for their senior seasons, UNC was labeled as a legitimate

BCS contender. And then they started Tweeting. Austin’s Tweet (sic’d) about “bottles comin like its a giveaway” in Miami may go down as one of the most destructive Tweets of all time. By the time the smoke had cleared, Austin, Greg Little and Robert Quinn were prohibited from ever playing UNC football again, and North Carolina was mired in athletic and academic scandals the likes of which it hadn’t seen since the late ’50s. The tragedy is that with the offense the Tar Heels have shown flashes of this season, they could have been in the hunt for the ACC Championship. The Washington Nationals “most demoralizing attempt to win games” award goes to Wake Forest. As a Nats fan since they moved to the nation’s capital in 2005, I once likened watching their offense to sitting on your back porch during a thunderstorm and hoping to watch lightning strike twice in the same spot. They weren’t hurt, they weren’t depleted, they didn’t lack for effort, but they just weren’t good enough. I have a feeling that Wake Forest fans know what I’m talking about. The Demon Deacons have been the culprits behind some

mind-boggling anomalies on both sides of the football. They allowed Stanford to score 10 times in 11 drives. That’s not disgraceful, as they feature Heisman candidate Andrew Luck as quarterback. Less defensible is the three punts they forced in a 62-14 loss against Maryland. Offensively, the Demon Deacons are the seventh-worst passing offense in the Football Bowl Subdivision. All of this means that they are an easy pick for the Washington Nationals award. The Brett Favre “craziest subplot that almost came true” award goes to N.C. State. Just as the Packers came within one game from playing the Vikings in last year’s playoffs, the Wolfpack came within one game of playing for the ACC Championship. Any scenario could have transpired, but we will never know because N.C. State blew a 14-point first quarter lead and never got the chance.

The North Carolina men’s soccer team can be confident of at least one thing entering its quarterfinal matchup with Southern Methodist University on Friday. If the game comes down to penalty kicks, recent history is on the Tar Heels’ side. UNC has won the first two games of the NCAA Tournament at the soccer charity stripe in 5-4 fashion. With home-field advantage and a first-round bye, No. 4 seed North Carolina first battled Georgetown to a 0-0 draw before polishing off the Hoyas. In the third round, forward Enzo Martinez scored a goal with nine seconds remaining, sending North Carolina into overtime against Michigan State. The Tar Heels prevailed once again 5-4 in penalty kicks. At this point UNC has mastered the penalty kick art, and junior Kirk Urso says it has nothing to do with luck. “If you hit a ball well and into the corner, it will be difficult for the goalie to get that,” Urso said. “Yeah, a goalie can guess right, but Contact Louie Horvath you can tell the difference between at horvath.louie@gmail.com. a good penalty kick and a bad pen-

alty kick.” But if Martinez and his teammates have anything to do about it, their match with fifth-seeded SMU won’t come close to penalty kicks. “There’s a confidence when we get to penalty kicks but we want to finish a game in regulation,” Urso said. “We haven’t done that yet this tournament.” The overtime drama and penalty kick shoot-outs are not for lack of trying during the first 90 minutes. Against Michigan State, North Carolina launched 31 shots — 20 shots more than the Spartans. The problem hasn’t been creating opportunities, it’s been finishing them. “Right now it’s just about making plays and finishing the opportunities that we have,” Urso said. “We’ve done well competing but we’ve lacked when it comes to executing the last pass.” It is a problem that has plagued the Tar Heels all season long: through balls going just a tad bit long and shots flying wide of the

goal post. Martinez believes the answer is a simple solution. “We need to be more calm on the ball and execute our plays, just play like we know how to play,” Martinez said. This week, practices have not revolved around the visiting Mustangs but getting back to the UNC game plan. “We haven’t really focused on them too much,” Martinez said. “We are focusing on ourselves and what we need to do to get a win on Friday.” And if Martinez and Co. handle business on the field, a third straight trip to the Final Four is in store. “Every year it’s a goal of everyone and it’s something amazing to be a part of,” Martinez said. “I think if we can do it again it would be an amazing experience for everyone and especially the young guys too.” Contact the Sports Editor at sports@unc.edu.

The E evator
On the rise
John henson
henson has led UnC in scoring in the past two games, scoring 19 against College of Charleston and 16 against illinois. in the two contests, henson shot 8-for-11 from the field for a grand total of 16-22. that’s 73 percent. if only henson could make free throws with that consistency (henson has a career .408 free throw percentage and he’s making just 33 percent this season).

On the decline
n.C. state
ralph friedgen is to tom O’Brien as tom O’Brien is to Butch davis. the ‘Pack’s recent loss to Maryland ended n.C. state’s aCC Championship hopes. it seems like Maryland always tends to disappoint the wolfpack in football, as the terrapins did in 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 and now, 2010.

Men’s soccer
Last season, north Carolina lost in the College Cup semifinals on penalty kicks. the tar heels are fresh off their second-straight Pk win. and against Michigan state, UnC tied the game up with only nine seconds to extend the game to overtime and penalty kicks.

aCC basketball
Yikes. the aCC was really creamed by the Big ten this year in the aCC/Big ten Challenge. UnC lost its matchup with illinois, but the tar heels weren’t the only aCC school to struggle. as a whole, the Big ten won seven. Guess the only good thing the aCC has going for it right now is another national championship on the way.

Men’s hoops freshmen
reggie Bullock has emerged as UnC’s best shooter, making 50 percent of his shots from inside and outside the 3-point line. kendall Marshall leads the team in assists per game (four), and he’s doing it while averaging only 15 minutes per game. and harrison Barnes, well, we still think he’s going to get better. Much better.

boise state
it’s not fair that Boise is here, but that’s the BCs. the Broncos lost last week for the first time since dec. 23, 2008, and if kicker kyle Brotzman hadn’t missed a 26-yard field goal or a 29-yarder in overtime, the Broncos could have won. and, get this, Brotzman has kicked 230 extra points — which is a 20 yard kick — and 65 field goals for a total of 425 points, the second most for a kicker in division i history. he needs nine more points to become the all-time leader.

North Carolina volleyball player Christine Vaughen pounds the floor with her feet and punches the air with two fists after a big kill. Vaughen and her teammates immediately converge into a circle, with butt slaps aplenty and crowd noise blaring around them. Her arms interlocked with her six teammates, Vaughen can hear, smell and touch each one of her teammates as they go review the next play’s strategy in the huddle. Who says volleyball isn’t a contact sport? With limited contact with opposing teams, volleyball teams like North Carolina create their own physicality with zealous celebrations and animated embraces after each point. These huddles are not superficial showings of cheerleading. Rather, coach Joe Sagula says they’re an integral part of the sport’s competitiveness. “There’s no physical contact across the net where sometimes people can release energy,” Sagula said. “There’s some way they want to create physical connections with people, so the way to do it is with your own team.” Sagula said that a competitive energy is fostered in sports like basketball and football by direct physical contact with the other team. A big hit in football or a posterizing dunk a la Danny Green can invigorate a team or a crowd, but in volleyball, Sagula said a lot of that energy is created by the team itself because of the separation of the two teams by the net. Sagula said this year’s team has relied more than ever on that intra-team physicality because of its lack of size. This leadership has brought the Tar Heels (24-9) to the NCAA Tournament, an event they missed a season ago. UNC takes on Ole Miss on Friday at the University

of California, Berkeley in the first round. “Each year different people do different things,” Sagula said. “This year, we’ve got a couple of individuals that just drive the nature of that. It would be difficult for us to be as competitive as we have without people like Cora (Harms) and Emily (McGee), who are very verbal about how they play. “It’s very rare that you can find success when you have teams that are downtrodden and not happy on the court.” Though Sagula encourages communication on the court, he said he does not coach specific cheers or on-court mannerisms — that’s up to the players to decide for themselves. Junior Erica Behm said that each player has her own distinct celebration. Behm’s is a traditional single fist pump, while Harms leaps into the air multiple times before entering the huddle. Though celebrations are an integral part of volleyball at all levels, Vaughen said the collegiate level offers less creativity because of its greater emphasis on professionalism. “In high school, you can do blocking cheers or specific ace cheers,” Vaughen said. “But then I realized when I came to college that I couldn’t do that anymore, I couldn’t dance in the middle and yell ‘dance party weekend’ like I had for five years. “Apparently you’re just too mature for that now, so everyone just kind of fist pumps or something else.” Contact the Sports Editor at sports@unc.edu.
