onsider him outfoxed. A Belarus hunter was wounded when the fox he was attempting to kill shot him with his own gun, allowing it to escape. The man, who is in the hospital with a leg wound, had wounded the animal from a distance. But the two scuffled when he approached to finish it off with the butt of his rifle. “The animal fiercely resisted and in the struggle accidentally pulled the trigger with its paw,” a prosecutor from the Grodno region said, according to media reports. The picturesque region in northwestern Belarus, bordering Poland, is popular for fox hunting.

policy decisions. The last plan, completed in 2003, played a highly influential role in the development of such popular initiatives as the first-year seminar program and the construction of the FedEx Global Education Center, among other changes. The first draft of the new plan was released in November. A revised draft was released Wednesday. Estroff will present the final version of the plan at the Board of Trustees meeting later this month with Bill Andrews, associate dean of the college of arts and sciences and the other committee co-chairman. “This is our long range plan to guide the University’s academic programs and priorities,” said administrative assistant David Bevevino. Thursday’s meeting sought to involve undergraduate students in the drafting process, but the evening focused on more complicated issues of campus diversity, student access to professional schools and the apparent inevitability of population growth on campus.

“We’re already in trouble, and we just have to hold tight. This is the beginning of the conversation, not the end.”

“I’m concerned with how can you begin to actually accommodate all students,” said sophomore Justin Huang. Huang and others also questioned language in the plan promoting a fast track four-year bachelor’s to master’s program and ease of entry to professional school. “At my orientation, we were told that Carolina didn’t have a pre-law path or a pre-med path so you wouldn’t get stuck in a narrow focus,” said junior Camile Jones. “I’m curious about what’s so different about this new idea.” Other students expressed concern that the plan’s proposed changes to the undergraduate academic experience — improved advising, universal access to first year seminars and enhanced interdisciplinary opportunities — were too focused on certain high achieving sectors of the student body. “I don’t really see a lot of attention given to students taking a non-traditional route to college,” said junior Lily Roberts, co-chairwoman of the student government academic affairs committee. Thursday’s discussion could spur further adjustments to the plan before the final draft is released. “Meeting with students is the best cure I know for malaise and thinking the world is going to hell,” Estroff said. And although the University faces some harsh budgetary decisions in the coming months, Estroff said she is certain that the plan’s vision of the future will ring true. “We’re already in trouble, and we just have to hold tight,” she said. “This is the beginning of the conversation, not the end.” Contact the University Editor at university@dailytarheel.com.

notify illegal sharers

unC’s method to start in dorms
Beginning Tuesday, computers accessing the Internet in residence halls will automatically be scanned for file-sharing programs. The Network Access Control service will scan for file sharing programs such as BitTorrent and LimeWire. If the service detects a file-sharing program, a pop-up message will notify him of the dangers of illegal sharing and ways to securely use the program. Network access will not be suspended and no legal action can be taken against the student, as the program cannot be used as criminal evidence. “What we detect with this service in no way, shape or form results in a meeting with security,” Ryan Turner, senior network engineer for ITS, said. “If we detect peer-topeer, there’s not going to be a violation created.” The new function, which cannot search for specific files, will be used merely as a preventative measure, said Chris Williams, ResNET program director “It’s like there’s one of these flashing speed limit signs, and you’re going 40 miles per hour. You can go 35, or you can go 40. It’s up to you to decide what to do. It just tells you,” he said. “If you want to ignore it, then go for it, it’s your personal computer. You have to take responsibility with what you want to do for it. “We’re just trying to provide some information.” In all residence halls, the program currently checks for anti-virus and firewall software to allow a computer onto the campus network. Williams said the new measure will speed up Internet connections since illegal file-sharing impedes the UNC network by using bandwidth. The University, after testing the program at the School of Dentistry, extended it to Cobb. “Last year, because we’ve implemented NAC, we were able to increase the speeds for all the students that connect to the network,” he said. “They went to about 25Mb connections from 10Mb. That’s a huge increase, and beyond what most students get at any other university.” UNC is required by U.S. copyright law to hold users of the campus network accountable for copyright infringement. Those cases cannot be initiated through the notification program. “We encounter weekly issues with students having copyright complaints filed against them from various media organizations, including the MPAA and the RIAA,” said Stan Waddell, executive director for information security at ITS, in reference to the Motion Picture Association of America and the Recording Industry Association of America. If a student is found illegally sharing files, the first offense leads to a loss of network access until completion of a training course and a meeting with ITS security officials. A second offence leads to a longer loss of network access and a referral to Honor Court. Processing copyright complaints had been costing UNC about $40,000 per year of late, but the use of Network Access Control in target areas has coincided with a decrease in complaints. ITS officials said media targets universities for copyright infringement because campuses with a high-volume of Internet users often provide exceptionally large bandwidths. The University of Michigan-Ann Arbor, a peer institution of UNC, implemented a similar program in 2007 called “Be Aware You’re Uploading,” which successfully cut down on outside complaints of illegal file sharing. The university reported that 72 percent of violations came from residence halls. Jim Gogan, director of networking for ITS, said he is optimistic about the new service. “In the past it’s been very reactive. We’d get the copyright violation notices. We’d have to track down students and say, ‘The recording industry or the motion picture folks saw that you were sharing this stuff illegally,’” he said. “What we want to do now is be more proactive.” Contact the University Editor at university@dailytarheel.com.

Events honor Martin Luther King, jr.

StAFF WriterS

In Chapel Hill, the memory and dreams of Martin Luther King Jr. are alive. Children, students and adults can all celebrate his spirit at community events beginning Monday.

UNC celebrating all week
The University will host activities beginning on Sunday and going through Friday. This year’s theme is “Race … American Dilemma?” “What we’re really meaning is that the color line isn’t just a problem of the 20th century,” coordinator Lisle Bull said. And Sunday’s 26th Annual University/Community Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Banquet has sold out. More than 400 people will attend. Monday, a University holiday, will be emphasized as a day for service. Students are encouraged to get involved and give back to the community. CNN anchor Soledad O’Brien will give the 30th Annual Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Lecture on Wednesday. She will be the first Latina speaker for the lecture and was picked for her involvement with CNN’s program “Black in America,” a documentary series

about the culture of U.S. black families. “We’re bringing in Soledad to see if the news is restoring (King’s) dream,” Bull said. “Is Martin Luther King’s dream of a world where race is not a significant predictor of opportunity promoted or thwarted by the 24-hour news cycle?” Terrence Roberts of the Little Rock Nine will recount his experience at Union Auditorium Thursday, and a panel called “MLK, Today: Aid in Development in Central and East Africa” will host a diverse panel of speakers including professors Ralph Byrns and Julius Nyang’oro the same day. The University will hold 15 events total.

NAACP and spoken word performances. The march will end at First Baptist Church. Benjamin Chavis will be the keynote speaker for the 11 a.m. service at the church. A long-time activist, he was one of the Wilmington 10 and a former president of the national NAACP. He was also the central figure in Timothy Tyson’s book “Blood Done Sign My Name,” Laws said. “He reflects the legacy of Dr. King in his tenacity in social justice,” Laws said. “There have been many blows he has had to overcome. “He has remained true to the face of justice, which is a neverending fight.”

Mini peace-making camp
The Carrboro ArtsCenter is offering its first holiday mini-camp for children to remember King’s message. The all-day arts camp, held Monday, will have a peace-making theme inspired by King’s proclamations of peace and unity, said Shirlette Ammons, the children’s on-site arts manager. “This is our first time trying it,” Ammons said. “We hope it works. We do mini-camps normally on teacher workdays.” Three instructors will lead three-hour residencies on ceramics, Ghanaian drumming techniques and peace mandalas — patterns that are created in the shape of a circle and have spiritual and ritualistic meaning, Ammons said. “On average we expect around 15 to 20 kids,” she said. “With kids having been out of school due to adverse weather, it took a hit on our marketing.” The camp cost ranges from $50 to $85, includes snacks and supplies and is offered to children ages 5 to 11.

NaaCP rally and march
The Chapel Hill- Carrboro branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People will rally Monday and march to reflect King’s pioneering spirit in social justice. “We want to give people a platform to discuss their social justice platforms in honor of Dr. King,” chapter President Michelle Cotton Laws said.

The request is lower than last year’s request of $262 million, but many board members expressed concerns that the amount is unrealistic. “I just have a fundamental discomfort going here. It’s a little bit like we’re not listening. We’re facing a $3.7 to $3.8 billion deficit,” said Paul Fulton, a member of the board. in the legislature, ‘We understand that you’re up to your neck in alligators.

Members of the UNC-system Board of Governors discussed their budget request for enrollment growth and financial aid on Thursday. The board is expected to vote Friday on a budget request of approximately $222 million to send to the N.C. General Assembly for those purposes. “We’ve got to keep our eye on the future of North Carolina. We’ve got to keep our attention to the fact that

Giffords’ doctor Obama leading in Clinton challenges fairly optimistic polls against GOP Middle East state
LOS ANGELES (MCT) — U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz., has not only opened her eyes, but she also is communicating with her family, physicians said at a Thursday morning news conference. “Her family has asked her very specific things, and she has used her hand to communicate with them,” said Dr. Michael Lemole, a neurosurgeon at Tucson’s University Medical Center and one of the surgeons who operated on Giffords after she was shot in the head Saturday morning. That implies that she has a good amount of cognitive functioning. “It was probably a combination of the unexpected but familiar that prompted her to open her eyes and caused her to look around,” he said. “That’s a very important step on her move forward.” WASHINGTON, D.C. (MCT) — President Barack Obama has bounced back from his low point after November’s elections and enjoys stronger support heading into the 2012 election cycle, according to a McClatchy NewspapersMarist poll released Thursday. The president’s rating improved on several fronts, including job approval, how many like him personally and whether they think he’ll do better in the next two years. Today Obama would beat Republican Mitt Romney by 51 to 38 percent, the poll showed. In a December poll, he trailed the former Massachusetts governor by 46-44 percent. Obama would defeat Republican Mike Huckabee by a similar margin, 50-38 percent. In December, the president led the former Arkansas governor by only 47-43 percent. And he’d crush Palin by 56-30 percent. DOHA, Qatar (MCT) — Secretar y of State Hillar y Rodham Clinton on Thursday bluntly challenged Middle Eastern leaders to open their political systems and economies, warning that “the region’s foundations are sinking into the sand.” Clinton, addressing an international meeting in the Persian Gulf nation of Qatar, said the region’s governments need to share more power with civic and volunteer groups to overcome the problems of exploding populations, stagnant economies and declining natural resources. Citing unemployment rates of 20 percent or more among the young, she said that “people have grown tired of corrupt institutions and a stagnant political order” and are demanding reforms.

Financial aid
The state’s escheats fund — composed of revenue from unclaimed property — funds about 83 percent of the state grants for need-based aid given out by the UNC system. But this fund is expected to be depleted in two years and many are worried that students will lose the money they depend on to get an education. The legislature will be figuring out how to handle decreasing financial aid over the summer, but most students will have already applied for financial aid by then. “The sad reality is we just don’t have enough money to meet the needs of all of our students,” said Julie Mallette, financial aid director at N.C. State University. Staff Writer Elise Young contributed reporting. Contact the State and National Editor at state@dailytarheel.com.

Enrollment growth
As the UNC system faces inevitable budget cuts, many board members said it was important to protect universities’ growth. T h e B u d ge t a n d F i n a n c e Committee recommended $45 million be requested from the state legislature to help fund enrollment growth programs. The board received $59 million of the $262 million they requested from the state legislature for enrollment growth. “At some point we have to give a lot of thought to our growth philosophy,” said Chairwoman Hannah Gage. “Because everything we do is going to cause a downward spiral.” While the legislature might not be able to fully support the programs this year, members said it’s still important to request the funds. “We ought to say to our friends

for this by reducing our budget immediately.” Woodson said in case of a 15 percent cut, administrators at NCSU might be forced to close down whole departments and colleges. “This is not trimming around the edges,” he said. Layoffs at campuses, including UNC-CH, are expected to start this semester, and Ross said he is leaving it to the chancellors to lead that charge. A 10 percent cut would translate to 2,000 positions being eliminated. The University system does not yet have predictions for a 15 percent cut. “A fiscal cut of 15 percent is much more than we bargained for,” said UNC-Charlotte Chancellor Philip Dubois. Board members said although the cuts to the academic side are going to be hard, the University system has no other choice.

“Do the math. There’s no way but to affect the academic side.”
“It would be an instance when you cut off a part of the body in order to maintain the rest of the body,” said board member Franklin McCain. Another area that is expected to suffer significantly is research. Steven Leath, vice president of research for the UNC system, said although research institutions in the state are growing rapidly, they are going to lose money not only from the state budget cuts but from the lack of stimulus funds. “We are getting cuts at the same time as we’re growing,” he said. “We will recover but it will be a long term process.” The N.C. General Assembly approved $22 million for research equipment for the UNC system last summer. But universities never received that money, Leath said. Those funds will remain frozen until the Council of State gives the system its approval. To offset at least a portion of the cuts, most campuses have proposed tuition increases close to the cap of 6.5 percent. The proposed increase for undergraduate residents at UNCCH is $313. If campus proposals are approved by the board next month and later by the N.C. General Assembly, the UNC system would be able to generate $63.8 million. UNC-CH would generate $15.7 million of that total. But chancellors know that money won’t be nearly enough. “Do the math,” Dubois said. “There’s no way but to affect the academic side.” Contact the State & National Editor at state@dailytarheel.com.

In its ACC opener at Virginia, the North Carolina men’s basketball team proved it had some fight in it. But in Thursday’s game at home against Virginia Tech, the Tar Heels made this toughness a Men’s habit. bAskeTbAll UNC trailed by as Va. tech 61 many as 16 in the first UnC 64 half, but battled back for a thrilling 64-61 win. “You’ve got to keep playing, you’ve got to keep plugging along,” UNC coach Roy Williams said. “The kids are maturing, and I think that’s huge.” The night did not start promising for the Tar Heels. After being stuffed by UNC for-

ward John Henson on a drive to the basket two and a half minutes into the game, Va. Tech guard Malcolm Delaney made himself at home behind the 3-point arc. The two-time All-ACC selection had eviscerated the Tar Heels from downtown, scoring 15 first-half points on 5-of-7 3-point shooting. He’d finish the game with 28 points. On offense, the Tar Heels struggled mightily to get into a rhythm in the half-court and appeared lackluster on both ends of the floor through most of the first half. With the Hokies leading 28-14, Va. Tech’s Jarrell Eddie fought through both Tyler Zeller and Dexter Strickland to corral a rebound midway through the half, seemingly underscoring the gap in intensity between the two teams.

It was shortly after that UNC’s Kendall Marshall kick-started the Tar Heel comeback. The freshman point guard made a pair of bank shots on back-to-back possessions and fed John Henson on an alley-oop that fired up the Smith Center crowd. The Tar Heels finished the first half on a 9-0 run that closed the gap to 31-24 before halftime. “(Marshall) came up big,” Henson said. “He’s impressive as a point guard and he kind of runs the show and it’s like his mind and everything, he was built for that spot. “I’m thankful for him right now. He pulled us through to the end, and hopefully he can keep it going.”

Harrison Barnes came alive late in the second half, scoring eight points during a tar Heel run. Until then, he had been quiet from the field since the first basket.

John Henson took over the game in the second half, scoring 12 points to lead the tar Heels. the sophomore forward was pivotal in UnC’s late comeback.

Even the visually impaired might have known when John Henson touched the ball against Virginia Tech. They would hear it. For almost 10 minutes in the second half, Henson scored 10 of UNC’s 14 points in a stretch that saw the Tar Heels climb from a seven-point deficit to a 47-47 tie with six minutes remaining. With each dunk, a roar echoed through the Smith Center as the lanky sophomore celebrated as he finally returned to the floor. “You want to get the crowd into it because eventually they’re going to help you in some situations,” Henson said. see henson, pAge 7

During that stretch every momentum swing for North Carolina was at the hands of the sophomore forward. “John gave us a great boost,” UNC forward Harrison Barnes said. “I think we just definitely fed off his energy, you know, his inside presence, getting layups for us. That put us back in the game.” After finishing the first half with five points, two rebounds and two blocks, Henson rebounded with 12 points, six boards and two blocks in the second half. The difference? “Just the intensity and playing harder,” Henson said. “They came out and hit us in the mouth and, you know,

The Daily Tar Heel

unC seeks redemption against Wolfpack
Won’t forget 11-point defeat
by Ryan davis
Staff writer

The North Carolina women’s basketball team has a bitter taste in its mouth. It’s a taste that’s lingered for almost eleven months, and they’re ready to get rid of it. “Remembering them jumping in the middle of the court at the end of the game kind of fuels everything,” senior Jessica Breland said. “I’m ready to play.” On Feb. 21, 2010, North Carolina State handed senior Italee Lucas one of the toughest losses of her career. N.C. State won the game handily — the final score was 74-63 — and embarrassed the Tar Heels in Carmichael Arena. It’s bad enough to lose to a rival team on your home floor. Having them celebrate in the middle of your gym afterward is even worse. “I’m not that type of person,” Lucas said. “It’s just more motivation when we see them Friday night. We definitely want to get them back for the loss that we had on our home court.” UNC is coming off its two closest games of the year, a one-point loss to Georgia Tech followed by a one-point victory against Boston College. Coach Sylvia Hatchell said the loss to Georgia Tech was the first time in her 25-year career in Chapel Hill that her team blew a lead of four points or more with a minute left. “We learned a lot from that game, but it was really great that

we were able to go right back on the road against a very good team in Boston College and pull that game out,” Hatchell said. Against the Yellow Jackets, North Carolina was outrebounded 39-29. Georgia Tech got 13 rebounds from guards Deja Foster, Metra Walthour and Tyaunna Marshall, prompting Breland to say the Tar Heels need more production on the boards from their guards. “We didn’t execute when we needed to execute,” Breland said. “A lot of balls went long and their guards did a very good job of rebounding. Our guards got outrebounded.” Although N.C. State hasn’t had a spectacular season thus far, they always seem to bring their A game when playing the Tar Heels. “N.C. State’s a very athletic team — they’re not that big, but they’re athletic — and they’ve got some excellent shooters,” Hatchell said. “They’re much better than their record indicates and they always get up and play their best against us.” Having Breland on the court this year will be a huge boost for North Carolina. Breland, who sat out last season as she underwent treatment for Hodgkin’s lymphoma, had to watch from the sidelines as UNC

squandered an eight-point secondhalf lead. Having her 14 points and eight rebounds per game on the floor should help the Tar Heels exploit a size advantage down low. “We’re hoping our size inside will really be a benefit around the basket,” Hatchell said. “As the game moves along and players get tired, the size usually becomes a factor.” The real challenge for them will be guarding the Wolfpack’s

perimeter shooters. In last season’s matchup they hit 9 of 20 shots from downtown with ACC Freshman of the Year Marissa Kastanek going 4-for-7 from behind the arc. “They like to penetrate and kick to create things for their outside shooters,” Lucas said. “We’ve just got to keep them in front of us and not let them get middle penetration.”

mind,” Barnes said. “Just because you miss shots early, you can’t be afraid to take them later.” The Hokies would cut the lead to one, but Delaney’s 3-point attempt with eight seconds remaining bounced off the front of the rim, and Marshall grabbed the rebound to preserve the UNC win. “I’m looking at that ball as it was going through the air,” Williams said. “I thought it was short, but all the sudden it looked like it got closer and closer. I didn’t know what was going to happen, but it was big for us to get the rebound.” Contact the Sports Editor at sports@dailytarheel.com.

The Tar Heels picked up where they left off after the intermission, and took the lead 43-42 on another Henson dunk from a Marshall assist. Again, Delaney caused problems for UNC, making a pair of free throws to give the Hokies back the lead and assisting on a Manny Atkins 3-ball on the next possession. But with his team trailing late, much-hyped freshman Harrison Barnes lived up to the words on his T-shirt shortly after he arrived in Chapel Hill. For the last four minutes of the game, Barnes was finally “that dude.” The preseason All-American drained a jumper to tie the game at 52 and then a 3-pointer from the left wing to give UNC its final lead on its next possession. He’d add another three to give UNC a 60-56 lead with 1:32 left. Barnes had eight of his 12 points in the last 3:38. “You always have to have that idea of yourself in the back of your

unC continues tough slate

The North Carolina wrestling team is returning to Carmichael Arena for the first time in more than a year, but this time the competition will be stiffer than the Duke team the Tar Heels rolled last season. The 10th-ranked Virginia Tech squad that will travel to Chapel Hill on Saturday is coming off a second-place finish in the NWCA/Cliff Keen National Duals in Cedar Falls, Iowa, after losing only to No. 1 ranked Cornell in the championship. The Hokies’ run in Iowa included victories against Oklahoma State, a perennial national power, and a Wisconsin team that sacked the Tar Heels in November. UNC has not had the same success as of late. After winning four of

its first six matches, the Tar Heels have dropped the last two duals. UNC coach C.D. Mock considers this Virginia Tech squad to be one of the best teams left on the schedule. According to WrestlingReport. com, the Hokies have a top-31 ranked wrestler in all but one weight class. “On paper we haven’t got a chance,” Mock said, “but we don’t pay much attention to that. It’s one-on-one.” One of those one-on-one matchups will take place when freshman Corey Mock takes on defending ACC champion Jesse Dong in the 157-weight class. The fifth-ranked Dong beat Mock by three points in a closely contested match in December at the Nittany Lion Open. In preparation for his rematch with Dong, Corey Mock has been

working with redshirt junior Kyle Kiss, who has similar strengths as Dong. “I want to play my game, not his.” Mock said. “If I can get on top first, that’s a match I’m going to win.” Coach Mock has confidence in his freshman’s potential but harbors concern about consistency. “I believe Corey is more than capable of beating Dong, but he’s got to show up.” Mock said. “If the guy that showed up for the Hofstra match shows up for the Dong match, he’s going to get whooped.” Other rookies have not struggled with consistency like Mock has this season. Freshmen Zac Bennett and Antonio Giorgio were the only Tar Heels to notch victories in both losses last week. The freshman class has been a bright spot this season as many of the upperclassmen are out of the lineup due to injuries.

“I’m very happy with them and the job they are doing,” Mock said. “Giorgio has done a great job and has probably been the most consistent wrestler on the team.” C.D. Mock attributes the success of the freshman class to confidence, admitting that the young Tar Heels believe they can win every time they step on the mat. Even though the 4-4 Tar Heels are heavy underdogs, C.D. Mock and his team will not be intimidated. “We’re planning on going out there individually, every single match just pushing them all over the mat,” he said, “and maybe getting in their head and maybe closing the gap — a little bit — of experience and talent that they have over us.” Contact the Sports Editor at sports@dailytarheel.com.

that’s what we want to do, so we took advantage of that.” Henson found an intensity level in the second half that the Tar Heels were missing. UNC was fumbling the ball, missing defensive assignments and turning it over. But when Henson turned it on, North Carolina did too. UNC coach Roy Williams called his second-half play “sensational at times.” Henson’s 17 points are his career best in an ACC game. He had 14 last year at Virginia Tech and at Duke. Henson was at least an inch taller than all of Virginia Tech’s players, but his stilt-like arms added a few more inches. His appendages forced the Hokies into cheap fouls on the defensive end of the court. Virginia Tech’s Jeff Allen and Terrell Bell picked up four and five fouls, respectively. He also finished the game with four blocks on the stat sheet. With that length, he was able to execute his running hook shot at will, which worked for him a few times in the second half. Aside from his electrifying dunks, Henson also made a few uncanny shots, though Barnes said

they aren’t that uncanny for him. “You know, John’s made some shots I don’t think Michael Jordan could have made, just with his length and some of the things he can do in the air,” Barnes said. “I was glad he was able to go out there tonight, be strong and just finish in the paint. Henson said he was glad he could rejuvenate the team and help orchestrate the Tar Heels’ second-half run. But as for the shots Barnes referred to, he took a less serious tone. “ They always laugh at me because I make some crazy little shots in practice and things like that,” Henson said. “It’s kind of funny that he said that, but I just try to play within myself and I’m kind of a weird, you know, kind of guy so my shots look a little bit different than everyone else’s.

The E evator
On the rise
Oregon unis
E a r l i e r t h i s y e a r, Virginia Tech’s jerseys were on the rise. But Oregon’s sick unis from Monday’s BCS Championship game take the cake. We don’t normally agree with what Oregon does (see: On the Decline), but these jerseys couldn’t be overlooked. Typically known as being Nike’s guinea pigs, Oregon and Nike CEO Phil Knight finally got it right against Auburn.

On the decline

Oregon court
This trippy new court is set to debut Jan. 13 and is yet another failed attempt by Phil Knight in Eugene. “Deep in the Woods” isn’t very intimidating and almost steps on Pac-10 rival Stanford’s toes with the tree motif. Isn’t Oregon the Ducks anyway?

Jets vs. Pats
Rex Ryan vs. Bill Belichick. Feet vs. Cheat. It’s a great rivalry that ESPN doesn’t hype up enough – if that’s even possible. These are two really good teams and the contest will make for a great match on Sunday at 4:30.

Seahawks vs. Bears
We all love the NFL Playoffs, but there is something really wrong with the Seahawks getting in. Pete Carroll’s the man and they proved they could hang in the playoffs with a win against the Saints, but no team has ever won a playoff game to go .500 on the season. Understand this though, we are not calling for a change in the system.

Florida St. basketball
The Seminoles earned themselves the first marquee victory of the ACC season by scalping previously unbeaten Duke at home. Then again, Florida State had nowhere to go but up. Before beating the defending champions, the Seminoles had lost three of their last four games, including one to SEC whipping boys Auburn. We guess that’s why they don’t play the games on paper.

Duke basketball
The Blue Devils dropped their first contest in 25 games Wednesday night at Florida State, silencing talk of an unbeaten season — finally. What’s worse, it’s looking more and more like stud freshman point guard Kyrie Irving will miss the remainder of the season with a toe injury. Well Blue Devils, take solace in this: Dick Vitale still thinks you’re awesome with a capital A, baby!

unc ordering more vaccines
record number requested nationwide
by Michelle Zayed
staff writer

musical lunches

After last year’s H1N1 pandemic on campuses, University Campus Health Services is making use of an increased supply of vaccines to keep students flu free. Jeff Dimond, spokesman for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said 160 million flu vaccines were produced for this flu season nationwide, which is a record amount. “We have more than ever,” he said. But UNC Campus Health has already used up all of the vaccines that they ordered in the fall, said Mary Covington, executive director for UNC Campus Health Services. After an increase in reports of flu-like illnesses reported by the CDC, Campus Health has already ordered more doses from

the state’s health department, Covington said. At the beginning of fall semester, UNC Campus Health hosted mobile clinics at different campus locations to administer free vaccines, Covington said. “Unfortunately, few people took advantage of these as much as they could,” Covington said. “We probably didn’ t get as much people vaccinated as we hoped.” There are none left for now, she said. Each year flu vaccines are made differently depending on the strains of virus that are circulating, Dimond said. This year the vaccine helps protect against the type A strain of flu also known as H3N2, the type B influenza and last year’s H1N1. The Centers for Disease

Control and Prevention strongly encourages every American above the age of six months to be vaccinated, Dimond said. College students tend to live in groups, which makes them vulnerable to contracting airborne diseases, Dimond said. “They live in dorms, use common bathrooms and common facilities,” he said. “Those are perfect breeding grounds for the flu.” Despite the increased amounts of preparation, some UNC administrators say this process is just for prevention. “I have not gotten any information from the campuses that we are seeing anything of significant difference than what we definitely see during a regular flu season,” said Brent Herron, associate vice president of campus safety and emergency operations for the UNC system. “I would say at this point everybody is geared up for a normal flu

GeT a FlU shoT Go to http://flu.gov/whereyoulive/index to learn where you can get a flu vaccine near you by entering your zip code.

season,” he said. But administrators are still urging students to take preventive measures by getting vaccinated and practicing appropriate hygiene. “If you are sick, stay home — don’t go out and spread it,” Dimond said. “Remember you are still contagious 24 hours after you feel better.” If there is a significant increase of flu cases reported on the UNCsystem campuses, Herron said the administration would work with the state’s health department to take adequate measures.

middle school wins travel grant
by ToRi KoesTeRs
staff writer

Some local students should start brushing up on their French after their middle school received a grant to encourage global education. Current students and graduates from Smith Middle School will travel to France and Belgium this spring after the school received its third grant from the European Union. From March 19 to April 2, eighth and ninth grade students will explore major historical sites in Europe that they have been studying. The 31 students will stay with pen pals in Liege, Belgium, for a week and attend a Belgian school, said the school’s French teacher Robin McMahon. “(McMahon) is really the person that is making all of this happen, and we’ve been delighted to see the partnership she’s developed with the schools in Belgium and France,” said Neil Pedersen, superintendent for Chapel HillCarrboro City Schools. “Smith is a school that focuses

on international studies, so it is appropriate that they receive the grant.” The “Getting to Know Europe” grant gives Smith Middle School about 77,000 euros — about $100,000 — from the European Union. The majority of the grant recipients are universities, including Cornell and Rutgers universities. The students will visit Normandy, Paris, and multiple cities in Belgium. Stops are set to include a mine museum, a Jewish memorial and European parliament buildings. Students will also tour an American exhibit in Belgium with their pen pals and hosts, who visited the students here last spring, McMahon said. “I’m mostly excited about the academic component and what the kids will research before the trip,” said McMahon, who is the primary grant writer and travel coordinator. “It will really bring history alive for them.” The selection process for students involved evaluating grades,

“I’m mostly excited about the academic component and what the kids will research before the trip. ”
Robin McMahon, smith middle school french teacher
an essay and a French oral interview. Georgia McCoy, a freshman at East Chapel Hill High School, said she’s both excited and nervous for the upcoming visit. She attended Smith last year and has taken French for three years. “You learn a lot about the language and the people and the different types of foods there,” McCoy said. “I’m really excited about just learning how to embrace these cultural differences.” McCoy said she communicates with her pen pal at least once a week, mostly through Facebook, and will stay with her friend’s family in Belgium. “The kids are really nervous,” McMahon said. “In the end, they find they’re really proud of themselves.” Six teachers, Smith Principal Phil Holmes and a journalist from Chapel Hill Magazine will also travel with the students during the trip.

duke to broadcast basketball in Mandarin
by Jeanna Smialek
staff writer

Duke University’s GoDuke.com will broadcast Saturday’s basketball game against the University of Virginia in Mandarin Chinese. For the first time in Atlantic Coast Conference history, the website will air a free live and ondemand audio play-by-play of the game in Chinese. The broadcast will air at 2 p.m. (EST) in the U.S., and 3 a.m. in China. “China is the biggest country in the world,” said Steve Kirschner, associate athletic director of athletic communications at UNC-CH. “If you are interested in expanding your presence, that’s the way to do it.” Tom Martineau, a research associate at UNC, said the University

has a similar project in the works. He said in an e-mail he is working on getting both UNC-Duke games broadcast in Shanghai — the first time a major Chinese network would broadcast a NCAA regular season game. Rob McKinney, director of operations for GoDuke.com, said Duke hopes to expand its global presence with the broadcast. If it goes well, other broadcasts — in various languages — could follow. “For right now, they are just trying to have fun with it,” said Duke student John Sheng. He will announce the game along with fellow students Jesse Sun and Yunze Chen. Michael Schoenfeld, vice presi-

dent for public affairs and government relations at Duke, said the initiative has been discussed since this fall and is part of Duke’s effort to globalize its image. He said Duke has a growing presence in China. More than 1,000 Chinese students study at Duke, and Duke plans to open a campus with partners in the city of Kunshan, China in 2012. “Every major University — UNC included — is looking at creating a more global presence,” Schoenfeld said. He said China’s rapid growth and economic, political and cultural dynamism make it especially important. Because ESPN owns the rights to the Duke game’s television

broadcast, only an audio broadcast will be aired in Chinese. “UNC is looking into the possibility of doing a TV broadcast, but we’d have to look into who has the rights to the game broadcast,” said Larry Gallo, senior associate athletic director at UNC. Niklaus Steiner, director of the Center for Global Initiatives

at UNC, said basketball could be a good way to raise attention for Duke and UNC. “As a first step, sports are good because they are easy to export,” he said. He said many American universities are trying to expand their worldwide presence to attract a global talent pool.

“Very few universities are wellknown abroad,” Steiner said. He said UNC is working to make its international reputation match its reputation in the U.S. “That is sort of the game right now,” he said. Contact the State & National Editor at state@dailytarheel.com.

Members of the Meadowmont Village community expressed concern about a proposed expansion of a Kenan-Flagler Business School complex and the threat it could pose to nature. Residents of Meadowmont were among the attendees of a public information meeting at Town Hall to review plans for the expansion of the Paul Rizzo Conference Center Thursday evening. The center lies within a Natural Heritage Area that borders the community. The proposed expansion location is on a wooded slope where runoff pollution’s disturbance to animals is a concern. Because the National Heritage Program is a not a regulatory agency, there is no provision to enforce the protection, wrote Linda Pearsall, director of the North Carolina Natural Heritage Program, in an e-mail to the Chapel Hill Planning Department. The area provides a buffer against noise, lights, domestic animals and other types of disturbances associated with developed areas. “These forests provide movement corridors connecting wildlife populations over the entire region,” botanist Misty Buchanan wrote in another report sent to the planning

DTH ONLINE: see a rendering of the proposed expansion of the rizzo Conference Center. department. But business school representatives said the construction site cannot be moved closer to the existing buildings. A garden, two cemeteries and land reserved for a possible light rail system lay in between the complex and the proposed site, said David Stevens, associate dean for operations and finance in the school. Currently the center houses 116 guest rooms as well as offices and classrooms. The proposed about 90,600 square-foot expansion would include 72 additional guest rooms, three more classrooms, an additional dining venue and a 187-car garage. “We are being very mindful of minimizing site disturbances,” said University Architect and Director Anna Wu. “The clearing lines are being kept really tight to the building.” Wu said that the complex would not be visible to the sur-

rounding area. But residents argued that the natural buffer benefits more than just animals. Meadowmont residents use walking paths throughout the natural space. “It’s absolutely precious,” said John Wilson, a UNC lecturer present at the meeting whose mother lives in Meadowmont. Hunters are also known to hunt near the proposed construction site. “It’s a real shooting gallery,” said homeowner Eric Teagarden, who mentioned that the sound might disturb conference center guests. The expansion would be privately funded, but Wu was not prepared to release estimates of the cost. Contact the City Editor at city@dailytarheel.com.

NCAA rulings hardly consistent
elp me with this. It took the NCAA a staggering four years, with nearly unlimited investigative authority, to arrive at the inevitable conclusion that Heisman Trophy winner Reggie Bush and his mom, Denise Griffin, did not have the means to afford the luxurious $757,000 waterfront mansion where they resided during Bush’s undergraduate career. The home was officially owned by a man who had many close connections with NFL agents. One USC national championship later, the precedent set by the NCAA with its critically acclaimed investigative prowess becomes more comical when coupled with the controversial investigations the NCAA has since conducted. The NCAA’s response to the USC scandal in comparison to the situation at UNC serves to highlight the organization’s dependence on high-profile teams to sustain its power — and the discrepancies aren’t going unnoticed. Just two months after the NCAA arrived, UNC felt compelled to hold 13 players out of the opening game of the 2010 football season. Meanwhile, Terrelle Pryor of Ohio State did not even have to miss his bowl game despite selling a ring and game jersey from a previous conference championship because he was supposedly unaware this would violate the NCAA’s vaunted amateurism principle. The NCAA even suspended a UNC player for staying with a former Tar Heel, whom they thought could have agent ties. The methodical and diligent NCAA issued a courageous ruling in a matter of a few hours that Cam Newton was an eligible amateur athlete after being presented with a load of damning evidence against him. Ignorance truly is bliss. However, it is becoming more apparent this phrase applies much more to the NCAA than to anyone else. After all, one of Newton’s first lines in his Heisman acceptance speech was to acknowledge that his parents do a lot of “behind the scenes” work that goes unnoticed. These suspicious inconsistencies from the NCAA are far from limited to the sport of football. Oklahoma State fans will tell you that the obstinate NCAA investigative process is about as merciful as the enhanced interrogations used on war criminals. Two years ago, OSU’s best wide receiver was suspended for an entire season for lying to the NCAA about eating a meal. Meanwhile, Bruce Pearl of Tennessee was violating NCAA rules with marvelous frequency. Pearl promptly lied to NCAA investigators about his actions, yet the NCAA has expressed admirable compassion for the multimillionaire coach by having yet to issue a punishment. While Pearl already received a conference-issued suspension, the NCAA’s decision to harshly punish an amateur athlete while leaving a highly compensated head coach unscathed for seemingly the same crime is ludicrous. In order to regain the public’s trust, the NCAA needs to dramatically increase transparency and consistency and try to deviate from its dependence on high-profile athletes and schools to help its bottom line become solvent. Until then, the NCAA will continue to be defenseless against skeptics who argue its disingenuous motives are in direct conflict with its ideological mission.

Medlin works hard, thus deserves to accept stipend
TO THE EDITOR: I was disappointed to read “Hogan’s broken promise” in Thursday’s paper. While the editorial board was correct in that during his campaign, Medlin promised to not accept the stipend, the article failed to present any reason for Medlin changing his mind. Medlin’s role as student body president is a full-time job on top of school. Thus far, Medlin has continued to make decisions that are in the best interest of the University. He has dedicated his senior year to serving UNC. The editorial board does not know Medlin’s financial situation and as a result, the article seemed overly critical. If Medlin needs to accept the stipend in order to be able to better dedicate his time to serving as SBP, I would hope all students would understand his decision. The editorial board was quick to offer a strong opinion without providing any reason for Medlin’s decision. Liz Deane Senior Class President

Prepare for the worst


University and student leaders must prepare now for the largest of possible budget cuts
today’s front page indicates, the system-wide budget has been cut $575 million over the past three years. An additional $405 million could be cut next year alone. According to Provost Bruce Carney, the University “cannot absorb cuts this deep without making some major changes in the University and its missions.” Provost Bruce Carney has already met with deans and vice chancellors to discuss the impacts of 5 percent and 10 percent cuts. Carney said planning for this prospective change is not slated to start until March. But clearly it needs to begin sooner. And the fact that these cuts would have severe effects is all the more reason to begin preparation now. By cutting more in some areas than others, the University plans to minimize the impact of the cuts. By articulating now what fifteen percent cuts would mean, the University would thus be prepared to minimize the damage. Right now, 15 percent is just a figure. But determining precisely the effects of that figure will also be vital in demonstrating its severity to the legislature. And just as the administration needs to begin preparing for the worst, students leaders ought to be on the front lines of the budget battle. The Association of Student Governments especially has a role to play in communicating to the legislature the importance of preserving funding. All system leaders, both students and administrators, should wait no longer to start finding the optimal means of preserving everything that makes UNC great should the most severe cuts materialize.

he combination of a sluggish economy and a shift in power at the General Assembly means the UNC system will certainly experience budget cuts. The new conservative legislature would rather combat the nearly $4 billion deficit that the state currently faces by lowering spending than raising taxes. Surely, some of these reductions will come at the University’s expense. In the shadow of uncertainty over the form of the cuts, the University needs to be fully prepared for the worst possible outcomes. The seriousness of the situation is not lost on the administration. Yet, little has been done to prepare for cuts above 10 percent, even though that scenario is hardly off the table. The severity of the potential cuts cannot be understated. As

Officials should explain commencement selection
TO THE EDITOR: As a member of the Carolina community, and more specifically the class of 2011, I am hoping that there might be greater insight shared into how Dr. Edward O. Wilson was chosen and, more importantly, how his speech on commencement Sunday will truly be relevant to this Spring’s graduating class. So far it seems the impression is that Chancellor Thorp went beyond a list provided to him and chose Dr. Wilson partly due to a previous encounter, and the selection committee was, as Ron Strauss and Senior Class President Liz Deane shared, late in even starting the process. While I believe that Dr. Wilson will be an intriguing and noteworthy individual to be able to gain wisdom and guidance from, I still feel there needs to be greater explanation for this decision. Members of my class may already feel slighted by the fact that Dr. Wilson isn’t very wellknown outside of academia (more importantly the science community), nor does he carry the kind of “star power” that previous commencement speakers at UNC or even rival Duke have had. Dr. Wilson is a very interesting individual, and after reviewing his background, accomplishments and even past interviews, he is obviously someone who is doing us the pleasure and privilege of sharing his wealth of knowledge with us. We just need to hear all of this from our class representative and the selection committee in a more detailed explanation rather than just sharing with us that they were a bit late in doing things and will do better next year. It doesn’t really make us feel better that they’re going to make it a priority to get the top choice for this spring for the class of 2012 rather than 2011. Seniors deserve a thorough explanation.

Congress shouldn’t prevent students from exercising voice
endum would be a petition requiring more than 2,800 signatures. Under the current proposal, students would pay $16 annually for the next 30 years in order to pay for the improvements, which would be finished in 2013. A fee of this importance for the student body should not be derailed by procedural maneuvering. Students should be allowed to vote on the plans and the fee. The Union, after all, is the main building dedicated to student needs on campus. Previously, we have argued against student funding of capital improvements, but this is an exception. UCommons will directly benefit students and is a valuable redevelopment of poorly utilized space. The student body needs a space open 24/7 — besides the Undergraduate Library — more on-campus dining options and better rehearsal spaces. The plan might not be perfect, but is surely worthy of a student referendum. The likelihood of getting University funding for this project is extremely unlikely with the UNC system expecting massive budget cuts in the next fiscal year. Private funding could come through, but student impact on the design of the Union might be reduced or compromised. There are legitimate criticisms of the plan itself. The Union’s 22 meeting rooms aren’t sufficient for all of the groups that want to meet there, and the new plan only has six meeting spaces. The renovations, which have an estimated cost of $11 million, have also been criticized as being too expensive. And some say it’s just not the best time for a fee increase given the current economic climate. But regardless of how students feel about the proposed plan, they should have the chance to vote on the fee increase themselves. t its meeting Jan. 18, Student Congress will decide whether to hold a referendum on a student fee that raises money for renovations and additions to the Student Union. We strongly encourage Student Congress to allow the fee to come to student referendum. As both the main benefactors of and funding source for the renovations, students should have the chance to vote on the proposed changes. Unfortunately, the rejection of this bill by the Student Affairs Committee will make it more complicated for the student body to decide on the fate of the Union. According to Deanna Santoro, speaker of Student Congress, the bill has two likely options. Congress could vote by a two-thirds majority to bring the fee increase to the floor, where it would still need a majority of votes before students could vote on it in February. The alternative route to a refer-

New NCAA proposal calls for care by athletic departments


matthew moran’s monday column begins in two weeks. tuesday, Sarah dugan’s wellness column returns.

his week, the NCAA’s Division I Legislative Council will vote on an important proposal that would allow companies to use the images of student-athletes in advertisements as long as the promotions reference the athlete’s school. The new rules could provide increased publicity for athletic programs across the country, and give student athletes great exposure that could help fuel their athletic careers. However, universities must be cautious, as they would be charged with bearing the burden of monitoring the relationship between student athletes and corporations. This may be a difficult thing to monitor, and could perhaps

require additional time and resources on behalf of university athletic departments. The overarching concern should be what is best for athletes, not what is best for universities seeking to promote their lucrative athletic programs. The proposal does not allow for direct endorsement of an athlete — student athletes are not allowed to be compensated by outside agencies. But as the Chronicle of Higher Education notes in its piece about the proposal, an image of the athlete could be coupled with a promotion saying “Company X works hard just like the University X’s Football Team.” In practice, it could be just as powerful as a verbal endorsement. Supporters of the plan believe

that it will help clarify the complex rules that regulate the relationship between student athletes and universities and outside agencies. Opponents of the plan cite an unfair exploitation of student athletes who may have little say in how their image is used as part of a promotion, as athletes will sign a release statement allowing colleges to use their names or likenesses in commercial activities. If the proposal is adopted, university athletic directors must work to make sure student athletes are not being exploited for the sake of university promotion, and clear guidelines should be set out for athletes who choose not to provide consent to the university for the use of their image or its likeness.
