The Board of Elections voted not to disqualify student body president candidate Rick Ingram for campaigning in a “malicious and harmful” manner following a hearing Monday night. The board instead voted to punish the junior by fining him $25, or 10 percent of his allotted campaign funds, and handing down another punishment, the specifics of which were not available at press time. Ingram will appear on the ballot in today’s election, which closes at 10 p.m. “The consensus of the board is that the evidence presented does not meet a clear and convincing standard of harmful and malicious actions that would warrant disqualification,” said Andrew Phillips, chairman of the board. The $25 fine was levied in response to an incident in which one of Ingram’s campaign managers, Billy Kluttz, solicited petition signatures in a classroom building, which is prohibited by election law. He and Ingram then reportedly attempted to persuade the witness not to tell Phillips. The undetermined punishment was in response to an incident that involved Kluttz reportedly thanking candidate Mary Cooper sarcastically in the Pit for removing sexist language from her Facebook profile page. Ingram said he felt vindicated by the ruling. “I’m glad to see that the board made the logical decision,” he said, adding that he “couldn’t possibly imagine how they could disqualify” him after hearing the testimony. Ingram said he will likely appeal his punishment to the Student Supreme Court. He said the fine doesn’t force him to exceed the $250 campaign fund limit, which would break another rule. The decision followed a two-and-a-half-hour disqualification hearing that took on a bizarre character and served as a fitting climax for a particularly nasty campaign season. From the very beginning, candidates and campaign members peppered each other with leading questions, fell into fits of laughter and vehemently accused each other of lying and playing politics. Phillips moderated the proceedings, the frustration visible on his face from the meeting’s lack of order. Cooper and candidate Ian Lee last week presented evidence — accounts of several in-person incidents — that Ingram had

Santoro resigns as speaker, files suit against elections board
Plans to file second suit with bOE today
By Andy ThomAson
assIstant UnIvErsIty EdItor

In the latest complication to an already tumultuous campaign season, Deanna Santoro, speaker of Student Congress, resigned her post Monday and filed a lawsuit with the Student Supreme Court against the Board of Elections. The suit challenges rulings by the board that have allowed can-

didate and current Student Body Secretary Ian Lee to run for student body president, citing misinterpreted sections of the Student Code. “Over the past few weeks, I have witnessed the complete lack of understanding of the function of the Student Code,” Santoro wrote in an e-mail to other members of Student Congress early Monday morning.

Deanna Santoro said she needed to leave her post in order to uphold the student Code.
“Our Code has been blatantly ignored, repeatedly violated and deliberately misinterpreted,” she added. Santoro said she hopes the

Student Supreme Court issues an injunction to the board that prevents it from releasing the results of today’s election. “I guess the bottom line is that if the Student Supreme Court rules in our favor there might need to be another election,” she added. “It would be in their discretion.” The Code prohibits the speaker from speaking out against any campaign or candidate. Santoro, who will continue as a

Granville Towers representative in Student Congress, said her decision to step down and file suit was motivated by her frustration with the board. “I think that they’re wrong,” she said. “I don’t want to sound rude or very polarized, but I am. I don’t believe that they’ve loosely interpreted it, I think they’ve misinterpreted it.” The suit claims the board misinterpreted the Code, which also

prohibits the student body secretary and other officials from participating in a campaign for any elected position. The board issued a decision in December that ruled Lee’s candidacy acceptable, citing a subsequent clause that states “the official,” when endorsing a candidate, must speak on behalf of themselves rather than student government.

business students to take part in exclusive conference
Students from UNC’s KenanFlagler Business School, along with students from the University of Miami, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, Senator Orrin Hatch and U.S. Ambassador to China Jon Hunstman, among others, will take part Wednesday in an online conference sponsored by The Atlantic and Microsoft on the economy of the future and how to create jobs. The public can submit questions and comments at http://www.jobsandeconomy.com, a website dedicated to the event.

After several months of searching for UNC’s next vice chancellor for research, three finalists have emerged: a familiar face, a former UNC department chairman and a wild card. “We feel that the candidates we’ve selected have outstanding credentials and we’re excited to work with them in the coming months to properly select which person we want in this position,” said Karen Gil, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences and chairwoman of the search committee. Among the candidates is Barbara Entwisle, who has held the position on an interim basis since Aug. 1. She has worked at the University for 29 years. She said she is honored to be a finalist, citing her current position

as helpful experience for not only the application process but also the future execution of the position. “If I were choosing a vice chancellor, I would want to look at all relevant experience, which would include my current performance,” Entwisle said. In her nearly three decades at UNC, Entwisle has been a sociology professor, a geology professor, and the director of the Carolina Population Center. Also in the pool is David Lee, vice president for research at the University of Georgia. Lee, who worked at UNC for 20 years before beginning his position in Athens, Ga., said he is excited for the possibility of a return to Chapel Hill. “It’s almost like my alma mater,” Lee said. “I have very fond feelings attached to that campus, and I am excited to get back and hopefully

reconnect with it.” Lee, a former UNC biochemistry and biophysics department chairman, said he is also excited to experience UNC’s research and medical departments again. “As great as UGA is, we’ve only recently started our medical school here, and it’s focused more on teaching the topics than researching them,” he said. “UNC is one of the best research schools in the country and I am excited about possibly having the opportunity to work with it again.” Kimberly Espy, associate vice chancellor for research at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, is the other finalist, bringing to the position several years of experience. She has been traveling and unavailable for comment for the past several days. The search officially began late last November and attracted a large

Kimberly Espy is the associate vice chancellor for research at the University of NebraskaLincoln. Barbara Entwisle has held the vice chancellor position on an interim basis since aug. 1. David Lee currently holds the position of vice president for research at the University of georgia.

business school publishes a playbook by successful alum
Students interested in becoming a chief executive officer — or even just making mildly successful strides in the business world — could be intrigued by a new posting on the Kenan-Flagler Business School website. That posting is a list of business and management techniques as compiled by Ron Lattanze, who was an executive with Guidant Corporation for several years, leading one of its units from $0 in sales to nearly $1 billion in less than two years. Lattanze spoke at the school in January, but it is now posting his “playbook,” a compendium of advice ranging from team building to dealing with obstacles.

student at chapel hill high school to direct peers in play
Chapel Hill High School student Nora Burgard will direct her peers in performing Tennessee Williams’ play “The Glass Menagerie.” The play is set in the deep South and tells the tale of the narrator’s time spent living with his mother and sister. The students will put on the show in Hanes Auditorium at Chapel Hill High Feb. 17 to Feb. 19. Tickets will cost $3 at the door, and the performance is rated PG.

As the clock wound down in Carmichael Arena and the North Carolina women’s basketball team led Duke by just two, the Blue Devils drove down the court in a last-ditch effort to tie the score. Duke’s Chelsea Gray, who had already picked up a season-high 20 points, attempted a buzzerbeating layup. Waltiea Rolle was in the right place at the right time. “I was just helping, waiting for her to get there,” Women’s the 6-foot-6 basketball Tar Heel cenduke 60 ter said. “I saw UNC 62 it coming, so I just blocked it.” Rolle had already scored 10 points and grabbed a team-leading nine rebounds. But that gamesaving block would be her biggest contribution of the night. Saving her team from overtime, Rolle helped No. 13 UNC to a 62-60 win against No. 5 Duke. The junior had seven blocks during the game, two of them in the final three minutes. For coach Sylvia Hatchell, grooming her tallest player has been a work in progress, but in moments like these, she sees how far she’s come. “Waltiea never touched the basketball until she was in the ninth grade,” Hatchell said. “When we recruited her she was really raw. But she’s worked really hard and she’s gotten a lot stronger. She has great timing … and size makes a big difference.” Despite the heart-racing ending for UNC, the game didn’t exactly start that way. The Tar Heels didn’t get their first basket until three minutes into the game, and the Blue Devils went on an early 11-2 run that forced Hatchell to signal timeout. “I don’t know what was wrong with us when we first started,” Hatchell said. “Duke started off strong. Then we finally settled down and started playing. I don’t know if they were just caught up in the Carolina-Duke thing, or what it was.” But the Tar Heels weren’t helpless for long.

Member of the UNC-system Board of Governors Bill Daughtridge Jr. has taken on a position that could be a conflict of interest. Daughtridge was appointed senior policy adviser for the N.C. General Assembly’s Speaker o f t h e Ho u s e T h o m T i l l i s , R-Mecklenburg, in January. But administrators are questioning whether he will be able to continue his legislative position as a member of the board. The UNC system’s policy prohibits members from working in paid positions for the state. Because Daughtridge is not receiving compensation Bill for his legisla- Daughtridge tive work, board volunteers for members and N.C. Speaker legislators will thom tillis. have to decide if the scenario in question creates a conflict of interest. “It would not have occurred to me, as it probably did not occur to him, that his decision to work with Rep. Tillis would interfere with his ability to serve as a member of the Board of Governors,” said board member Burley Mitchell Jr. Mitchell said the board has not had any formal discussions about Daughtridge’s new position. And N.C. Rep. Bill Faison, D-Caswell, said this kind of relationship between legislators and board members is not uncommon because they are appointed by legislators. “The university has always had a very close relationship with legislature because a lot of university funding comes from the legislature,” Faison said. “All members appointed by House or Senate generally have strong personal relationships with members of the House or Senate, and I don’t see that as a bad thing.” Hannah Gage, chairwoman of the board, said this is also not the first time a board member has worked closely with a legislator. “It is a volunteer and an unpaid position so he will not be a state employee,” Gage said. She said Daughtridge spoke to attorneys and got legal opinions regarding his new position. Tillis said in an interview last month that understanding the specifics of how the University with Daughtridge’s help could be valuable, especially given the severe budget cuts the system is facing. “My interest in the University system and the message I wanted to send to them about being certain that we protect and promote it is probably best evidenced by who I have as a senior policy adviser,” he said. Daughtridge was not available for comment after repeated attempts to contact him. Contact the State & National Editor at state@dailytarheel.com.

local students visit the nc school of science and math
S t u d e n t s i nv o l v e d i n t h e Math Olympiad team at Rashkis Elementary School visited the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics last week. About 45 fourth and fifth grade students participated in the tour and information session. The purpose of the trip was to encourage the students’ interests in math and science. Students learned about the opportunities beyond math and science that are available at the school and got tips on how to get accepted. While at the school, Middle School Admissions Counselor Kim Logan spoke to the students and showed them the school’s campus including its science labs, athletic facilities, art room and other classrooms. -From staff and wire reports

Chapel Hill to feel new pulse
a new nightclub is coming to 136 e. rosemary St. this month, with a tentative opening night of feb. 11. richard Sergo, a junior at UNC, said he realized that Chapel hill needed more nightclubs and pitched the idea of opening Club Pulse to his family, who now owns the new business. “You can actually come and relax and enjoy yourself, or you can come out and grind on the dance floor all night long,” Sergo said. Club Pulse, which will be an 18 and up venue, will have a cover charge of up to $10, depending on the age group and time of night, Sergo said. it has more than 5,000 square feet of space and will have a maximum capacity of approximately 560 people. “there’s no way to enjoy yourself when you’re slammed up against other people,” he said. “i’m trying to keep it a classy place.”

Students to sell accessories
two UNC students are finding a new way to give back to the community while simultaneously furthering their studies. on feb. 4, taylor walters and Chelsea Crites, both seniors, will open 4, an accessories store that will sell jewelry, scarves, handbags and a variety of other accessories at 149 e. franklin St. walters said most items will cost between $20 and $55. “it came out of an independent study that Chelsea and i are doing with advertising professor dana McMahan,” walters said. the profits from 4 will go to the ronald Mcdonald house of Chapel hill, the Center for Child & family health in durham, taBLe in Carrboro and the arc of orange County. “Chelsea and i each picked two,” walters said. “i picked mine because they provide such a great service to the community, and i wanted to supplement this service.”

New focus on group fitness
Studio east 54, a new fitness center in Chapel hill, will have its grand opening feb. 19. owner Katie Martin said the center will focus on group workouts, offering four programs: Pilates, trX Suspension training, Xtend Barre and Zumba. “Basically i wanted to bring together some of the hottest fitness workouts together in one place in Chapel hill,” Martin said. one-time class fees will range from $15 to $20, and value packs will be offered as well. Students can also receive a 10 percent discount with a valid student id. the center will not charge a membership fee but does offer a monthly unlimited package. Studio east 54 will provide a more personalized and intimate setting than your average gym, Martin said. “i’ve put together four fun programs,” she said. “it’s all about not being bored.”

Antonia’s replaces Tupelo’s
a new italian restaurant will replace popular Southern restaurant tupelo’s later this month. tupelo’s, which was located at 101 N. Churton St. in hillsborough, closed Jan. 10. the business was bought by Phillip Smith, his wife antonia Berto, Claudia Salvadore and Naomi Lundahl. “the hardest thing about it was that the business was excellent as far as how busy we were,” said tupelo’s owner Matt Carroll. “the location was wonderful but the building was very old and very hard to keep up.” the new venue will be called antonia’s restaurant and will serve authentic italian and Mediterranean cuisine. the restaurant will be using naturally raised meat and local ingredients in their menu, Smith said. “it’s going to be hearty and fresh, a lot of homemade products,” he said.

Glen Lennox gets new $42 million investor
Money will go toward renovations
by Nora ChaN
staFF Writer

Residents of a Chapel Hill apartment complex might see renovations after a Washington, D.C.-based company announced a $42 million investment Tuesday. Federal Capital Partners is pairing with Grubb Properties, owner of the Glen Lennox apartment community off N.C. 54 since 1986. The project also includes Riverwoods Apartments in Raleigh. The money in Glen Lennox will mostly go toward maintenance and renovations for the property, said Todd Williams, the vice president of investments for Grubb. He said the property is more than 60 years old. “We do know that at some point in time in the long-term future that we will have to make some tough decisions about what the future of that property will be given the age of some of those assets,” Williams said. “That’s essentially the process that we’re going through with the community right now.” Grubb decided to seek a partner last spring, Williams said.

“Federal Capital Partners stood out amongst all the folks that we had talked to,” Williams said. “They had a similar interest in the property that we did, which was more of a long-term interest in seeing that property through any changes.” The investment marks Federal Capital’s first in North Carolina. “We’ve been looking in the Raleigh-Durham area specifically for a couple of years now,” said Alex Marshall, managing partner for Federal Capital. “The Glen Lennox complex is very well-located in Chapel Hill, which is a strong market for apartment demand and other fundamentals,” he said. Stephen Estes, a UNC senior who has lived in Glen Lennox for two years, said companies buying from a distance may change the target community for the neighborhood. “Glen Lennox in the past has been a place for affordable housing and access to campus, and it has met the needs of people who need those two things,” Estes said. “They’ll be trying to maximize

revenue. I think it’s probably going to go to more expensive housing, which would eliminate one good option for affordable housing close to campus,” he said. But while Williams said Federal Capital will be involved in decisionmaking for the properties, he said residents won’t see a major change as a result of the investment. “This is really a capital investment and not a real change in the management,” Williams said. “We’ve managed the property as long as we’ve owned it, and we’re going to continue to do so.” Marshall said the companies will try to arrive at decisions that work for everyone. “We’re certainly interested to see how it shapes out, but we trust that Grubb is now on the right track,” Marshall said.

Council revisits town plan

school of the arts may raise tuition
“Given declining state support, I wouldn’t criticize any institution.”
aLaN boyette, viCe Provost For aCadeMiC aFFairs at unC-Greensboro
provost for academic affairs. “I find it surprising given the 6.5 percent cap,” Boyette said about UNCSA’s proposal. “Given declining state support, I wouldn’t criticize any institution.” Matt Horbat, a UNC alum and current UNCSA graduate student, said the school has been transparent about the possible tuition increase with e-mails and forums. He, English and Perrin said the students haven’t protested the higher cost. “It’s just one of those costs we’ll just have to grin and bear,” Horbat said. “It’d be hard to find a similar school not having these kinds of problems.” The school’s alternate plan has the same out-of-state, $1,000 tuition raise, but increases in-state tuition by 6.5 percent, yielding $55,395 less than the first proposal. The board is expected to review tuition proposals submitted by UNC-system schools at its meeting Thursday and vote on the proposals Friday. Contact the State & National Editor at state@dailytarheel.com.

The town’s comprehensive plan dominated discussion at the Chapel Hill Town Council’s annual retreat, with council members pointing out the need to update the document more frequently and better incorporate town services. The last comprehensive plan was finalized in May 2000, and the plans traditionally focus on land-use patterns, said Mayor Mark Kleinschmidt in an interview. He and council member Penny Rich said they would like Chapel Hill’s new plan to integrate use of services like the police, the fire department and schools. “I certainly want to make sure that the process for creating it is an inclusive one,” Kleinschmidt said. “And that the community has adequate opportunity to participate and influence the outcome of the plan.” The comprehensive plan outlines community priorities, helps set policy direction and serves as a guideline for future decisions.

David Owens, a professor in the UNC School of Government who discussed the plan with the council at the retreat, said the comprehensive plan should look 10 to 20 years down the road. “You need that longer time perspective to provide the critical context for individual decisions,” Owens said. “It’s hard to step back and look at the big picture and look at the long term. “It’s difficult to make it concrete, but it’s extremely important.” The current comprehensive plan is organized around 12 themes, which include conserving and protecting existing neighborhoods, planning with the University and developing strategies to address fiscal issues. Rich said 2000’s comprehensive plan fell short because it was not updated. The plan was supposed to be revisited every five years. “The importance of comprehensive plans is really that you’re planning for the future,” Rich said. “It needs to be a living document because everything changes.”

“The importance Proposal exceeds cap on increases of comprehensive institution raising tuition above by LaureN russeLL plans is really that senior Writer the cap and sending larger bills to In preparation for reduced state students and families, but also said you’re planning for funding, the University of North that it could be inevitable.

PeNNy riCh, toWn CounCil MeMber
She cited the economic downturn as an unforeseen circumstance that the plan could have addressed in updates. Turning to the future comprehensive plan, Rich said zoning is an important focus because new development in Chapel Hill will likely be renovations of existing commercial and residential spaces. There is no deadline to complete an updated plan, but Kleinschmidt said he hopes to finish by summer 2012. The council will work with town staff and the community to accomplish this, he said. Contact the City Editor at city@dailytarheel.com. The public conservatory is petitioning to override the systemwide 6.5 percent cap on tuition increase in order to inflate tuition for instate undergraduate students by 11.6 percent for the next school year. The UNC-system Board of Governors recommends a maximum 6.5 percent cap increase to the General Assembly when deciding budget cuts and tuition increases. The cap is included in the Second Four-Year Plan, which the board approved in November. The plan maintains the same tuition policies as former President Erskine Bowles’ original Four-Year Tuition Plan. John Davis, a member of the board, said he was against any to help make money by raising tuition later on,” Davis said. UNCSA’s proposal raises instate tuition by $500. Out-of-state tuition would be raised by $1,000 — or 6 percent. The combined hikes would supply the school a net revenue of about $437,000. As a public conser vator y, UNCSA has few peers nationwide, and instead must compete largely with private institutions. The school is not able to provide the same sort of merit-based scholarships as these private institutions, said David English, the school’s associate academic officer. Typically half of the UNCSA student body is out-of-state — compared to other UNC-system schools, where only 8 to 12 percent of the student body is out-of-state, he said. UNCSA also needs expensive equipment for many classes, said Student Body President Alysha Perrin. “When we get major cuts, we lose entire programs or schools,” Perrin said. Nearby UNC-Greensboro will present a tuition increase proposal right at the 6.5 percent mark, said Alan Boyette, the university’s vice

The cabinet met without the widely despised former interior minister, Habib al-Adly — replaced by another police general, Mahmud Wagdi — and some signs of freedom were becoming apparent for the large number of protesters detained over the last two weeks. Following widespread international outrage, a Google executive was scheduled to be released Monday afternoon, Egyptian television reported. Wael Ghonim, Google’s head of marketing for the Middle East and North Africa, had traveled to Egypt from his home in Dubai and was believed arrested Jan. 27. Ghonim was arrested after joining the protests in central Cairo, according to Amnesty

egypt’s new cabinet meets to bring stability but protestors still resisting
International investigators who spoke to eyewitnesses. Ghonim announced on his Twitter feed before his arrest that he had been “brutally beaten up by police people.” Not long before he disappeared, he wrote: “Very worried as it seems that government is planning a war crime tomorrow against people. We are all ready to die.” The release of prisoners has been a key demand of opposition representatives who met with newly appointed Vice President Omar Suleiman. They also are looking immediately for greater press freedom, a lifting of emergency laws and restraint in the use of force against anti-government protesters, in addition to comprehensive political reforms. Government spokesman Magdy Rady said there has been so much instability that “some groups” may be holding detainees without the government’s authorization.

Every day, thousands of UNC students pass through the Pit. During election season, the Pit is filled with enthusiastic campaigners holding up unique designs promoting student body president candidates. Candidates said deciding on sign symbolism is an important part of the campaign process.

a personal touch
Student body president candidate Mary Cooper has campaigned with a picture of the Old Well bearing her initials, entwined much like the classic “N.C.” of the University. “We wanted to choose something that represented Carolina that I could add my personal touch to,” Cooper said. Mary Cooper’s brother Jamie Cooper and UNC sophomore Asia Morris helped to create the logo. Jamie Cooper, a sophomore art major at the University of Georgia, said his sister asked him to help with the logo over winter break. “I thought her initials, M.C., were a lot like N.C.,” Jamie Cooper said. “We decided to play off the already existing logos of North Carolina.”

to resist,” Stephens said. Lauren Talley, one of the logo’s designers, said she started sketching the logo on receipt paper while working in Student Stores. “She’s all about connecting people and involving people,” Talley said.

a new beginning
Student body president candidate Rick Ingram’s logo invites comparisons to the symbol for the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Like the federal logo, illustrated with gears, stars and a sprout, Ingram’s is split into three sections — a sunrise, the Old Well and people. “It’s a collection of the things that are important to us at Carolina,” Ingram said. Ingram and his campaign manager Billy Kluttz said the logo similarities were coincidental. “Logos are fairly inconsequential in these student body president races,” Ingram said.

aOL Inc. to buy Hu∞ngton Post
SAN FRANCISCO (MCT) — In a bid to make itself relevant again, struggling Internet pioneer AOL Inc. announced S u n d ay i t w o u l d b u y t h e Huffington Post for $315 million in cash and stock. As part of the deal, Huffington Po s t c o - f o u n d e r A r i a n n a Huffington will oversee a new group responsible for bringing together all editorial content from both companies, including news, technology, music and local media websites. The deal, which was signed Sunday with approval from the boards of both companies, is something of a gamble for AOL. The Huffington Post could give AOL a much-needed boost in talent, traffic and ad inventory. Perhaps more important, it could also give the company an image makeover. But it remains to be seen whether the acquisition will be the turning point AOL Chief Executive Tim Armstrong has been looking for in his strategy to transform AOL.

assange says he won’t get fair trial
LONDON (MCT) — Lawyers for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange argued Monday that their client should not be extradited to Sweden for questioning in alleged sex crimes, saying he was the victim of unduly aggressive prosecutors and would not be guaranteed a fair trial. On the opening day of a two-day hearing, Assange’s legal team sought to downplay the severity of the molestation and rape accusations against him and to cast doubt on the credibility and authority of the Swedish prosecutor seeking his extradition. They called a witness who referred to her as an “ultra-radical feminist.” But British prosecutors, acting on their Swedish colleagues’ behalf, said the alleged crimes committed during Assange’s liaisons with two women last August were serious enough to warrant his return to Stockholm to be interrogated and possibly charged.

rep. Harman to resign from seat
WASHINGTON, D.C. (MCT) — U.S. Rep. Jane Harman, a leading congressional voice on antiterrorism issues, plans to resign from Congress to head up the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, a senior congressional source confirmed Monday. The California Democrat is expected to leave her seat soon to succeed former Rep. Lee Hamilton as head of the Washington-based think tank, though no date was immediately announced. Her departure comes after her party lost control of the House, and it creates a rare open congressional seat in the Los Angeles area, setting up a special election to choose her successor. Harman’s departure was first reported by NBC News. Harman was sending an e-mail to constituents Monday notifying them of her decision. “I have always believed that the best solutions to tough problems require a bipartisan approach, and bipartisanship is the center’s ‘brand,’” she said in the e-mail.

Vote of confidence
Student body president candidate Ian Lee said his logo is clear and to the point. “The check is a vote of confidence,” Lee said. “And the four colors signify a diverse and inclusive environment.” Lee’s campaign manager Cierra Hinton said Lee wants to get things done for the student body. “The check mark is connected to student voting, connected to getting things done,” Hinton said.

Islam-related terrorism in us declines
by madeline will
staff writer

Islam-initiated terrorism in the U.S. decreased in frequency last year, according to a recent study’s findings. The study, conducted by the Triangle Center on Terrorism and Homeland Security, found the number of Muslim-American terrorism suspects and perpetrators dropped from 47 in 2009 to 20 in 2010. “This study examines the list of Muslim Americans who engaged in plots of terrorism since 9/11,” said Charles Kurzman, author of the

study. Kurzman is also a professor of sociology at UNC and a codirector of the Carolina Center for the Study of the Middle East and Muslim Civilizations. The number of terrorism suspects in the United States in 2009 was an outlier compared to the trend over the past 10 years, he said. “ This drop was surprising given the public attention given to Muslim terrorism,” Kurzman said. “The number of individuals is not nearly as large as we would expect.” From 2001 to 2008, there were

94 Muslim-American terrorism suspects and perpetrators, according to the report. Two cases were reported in 2008. Compared to leading causes of death nationwide, terrorist attacks are not significant. Since 9/11, there were 33 deaths that resulted from Muslim terrorism, Kurzman said. The low numbers are due to a combination of good luck and good policing, he said. “We are fortunate that some of the terrorists were very incompetent,” Kurzman said. But most of the terrorist acts

since 9/11 were associated with Islamic extremism, said Jena McNeill, policy analyst on homeland security for The Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank in Washington, D.C. Terrorism is impossible to predict in the long run, McNeill said. “Terrorists don’t operate on a calendar year,” she said. She said the study will not make a difference to average citizens. “I don’t see that people will necessarily change their views on terrorism,” she said. The highlight of the report is

that U.S. law enforcement has been able to stop many of the attempted terrorist attacks, she said. The American Muslim community has also played a large role in stopping terrorist plots and conspiracies, said Carl Ernst, UNC professor of Islamic Studies. “Mosques in Muslim communities are the most important allies in the fight against terrorism,” he said. Ernst said the public has demonized American Muslims, when in reality, the problem is extremists. “The perception of Islam in the United States is clearly out of pro-

portion to the reality,” he said. Any act of terrorism from the Muslim community comes from the fringe, Kurzman said. “We’re talking about unstable individuals,” he said. The debate on Muslim terrorism needs to be based less on fear and more on the facts, he said. “Too much of our debate has been driven by suspicion and bias, and I would like to see evidence brought into the debate,” he said.

former Clinton aide Gaa hosts forum on egypt speaks on war, Obama

He carried the “nuclear football,” the briefcase containing all the data needed for the United States to launch a nuclear attack. He tracked the location of Osama bin Laden on a satellite phone. And for two years, retired Lt. Col. Robert “Buzz” Patterson followed President Bill Clinton across the globe as his senior military aide. Once, as Patterson told a crowd of students Tuesday in Dey Hall, he even walked in on the president and Monica Lewinsky. But it wasn’t until 1996 that Patterson said he became political. When the administration’s job offer first arrived, he thought it was a prank. “I didn’t start out to be a conservative pundit,” Patterson said. After serving 20 years in the U.S. Air Force, including several tours of duty as a combat pilot, Patterson got a call from the White House inviting him to serve as Clinton’s senior military aide. He accepted and moved to Washington, D.C., two weeks later. Patterson said he voted for Ronald Reagan but didn’t vote again until he cast a ballot for George W. Bush in 2000. He said his political views developed during his time in the White House. Today, Patterson blames the 9/11 attacks on Clinton, who had several opportunities to have bin Laden killed, he said. “We knew exactly where he was,” Patterson said. “We had at least eight to 10 times to pull the trigger on bin Laden — to either capture him or kill him — in my two years in the White House, and every single time, President Clinton chose not to.” Patterson added that Clinton knew of the perceived threats of al-

Qaida hijacking airplanes to attack U.S. buildings. “I personally lay the blame for 9/11 on President Bill Clinton,” he said. Patterson went on to discuss U.S. military involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan, of which he said he is a strong supporter. “Whether or not President Bush intended it to be this way, it was a brilliant idea in the grand scheme of things,” Patterson said. Garrett Jacobs, an economics major and a member of the College Republicans, said the stories were reminiscent of what he’d heard from friends. “I know other people who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan, and his stories about when he was there sort of rang true with what they’ve said and reminded me exactly why we’re over there,” he said. Patterson segued from Iraq to criticize Obama’s performance, saying he is an even more poorly equipped leader than Clinton was. “I really thought I had worked for the worst commander in chief in our nation’s history,” he said. “I was wrong.” The Committee for a Better Carolina brought Patterson to speak at UNC, saying he brought a new point of view to campus. “He covers a topic that we had not brought a speaker in to speak on before,” said Jason Sutton, a senior political science major and president of the group.

Doria El Kerdany has been intently watching the news pour in from Egypt, trying to contact her family and check on their whereabouts. Along with three other panelists, Kerdany spoke on the current state of Egypt and the entire Middle Eastern world at the General Alumni Association’s “Egypt in Crisis” forum on Monday. Kerdany, a native of Cairo, said she would be in Tahrir Square — the first and largest protest site — if she were in Egypt. “My daughter is one of the revolution people,” she said. During her past several visits to the country, Kerdany said she noticed changes. “The light in the eyes that is famous of Egyptian people is not there,” she said. The Egyptian demonstrations against long-serving president Hosni Mubarak began two weeks ago, about a month after the people of neighboring Tunisia overthrew their own dictator of several years. Nadia Yaqub, another panelist and professor of Asian studies, addressed the conflicting opinions on America’s role in shaping a new Egyptian government. Yaqub said she thinks the two countries should work together. “Yes, and the reason I say ‘yes’ is because we already are deeply involved,” she said. Senior Josh Watkins found Yaqub’s remarks interesting. “I particularly liked Nadia’s stance on ethics,” he said. Panelist and political science professor Mark Crescenzi discussed his expectations for Egypt’s future. “I expect Mubarak to hold on,” he said, adding that he believes Mubarak will make slow steps toward change to try to meet the demands of the protestors. “I think that he will try out his new cabinet,” he said. Carl Ernst, another panelist and professor of religious studies, said

the future is difficult to determine. “We all would like the ability to predict what happens next, but in revolution it is such a chaotic situation that it is impossible to know what happens next,” he said. “ That we will see political change in the next few years as a result of it.” Yaqub said many Middle Eastern people and governments already have positive feelings toward the U.S., providing a chance for America to build public opinion and orchestrate change. “On the ground, if you spend any time in the Arab world, people are ready to love the U.S. if they just gave them a chance,” she said. “But the U.S. doesn’t.” Kerdany said the young people of Egypt just want the Mubarak coup — as she called the government — dissolved. “I believe and hope that this is what will happen,” she said. Kerdany said that after initially following the demonstrations, she wanted to drum up support locally. With her map of the world depicting Cairo in the middle, Kerdany stood out side the Franklin Street post office, asking for support from passing pedestrians. But she was disappointed with what she witnessed. “The majority of the people passing by me were completely indifferent,” she said. Contact the University Editor at university@dailytarheel.com.

rooklyn Stephens, student body president candidate, rode her horse, Chunky, in the Pit on Monday. Stephens e-mailed the Board of Elections beforehand to make sure animals could be used in campaigning. Patricia Flood of the board replied, saying there was nothing in the Student Code to restrict it, as long as the campus was not damaged. “Also, cleaning up behind the animal is a must. I am sure this goes without saying, but making sure the animal is being ethically treated and cared for properly is essential to the health and well-being of the creature,” Flood said.

Jessica Womack, chief justice of the court, said the court could prevent the board from certifying results of the election if it is necessary to sustain the status quo. She added that it would take the court more than a day to decide the suits, citing the requirement to provide the defendant at least 24

hours to respond. Santoro said she has no ulterior motives in filing suit. “I have no problem with Ian running,” she said. “I do have a problem with the student body secretary running when the code says that they can’t.” Lee said he feels sure that, no matter what the court decides, his campaign will be unharmed. “Even in a worst case scenario the [Student] Supreme Court would just say that I need to resign,” he said. The new speaker will be determined by an election held at the next full meeting of Student Congress on Feb. 22. Zach De La Rosa, chairman of the rules and judiciary com-

campaigned in a manner that violated election law. Witnesses to each incident stood up before the board, recalled their accounts and took questions from members of other campaigns. Ingram and members of his campaign then stood up and responded to the accusations. Ingram questioned Cooper and Lee’s motivations for presenting the evidence against him in his closing statement. “You chose to try and embarrass me,” he said. “You chose to try and embarrass my campaign manager. And that’s wrong, and you should not have done that.” Many of the accusations were directed toward Kluttz. Ingram’s campaign manager was accused of using profane and sexually offensive language to members of Cooper and Lee’s campaign. He responded to these allegations by citing several times his own commitment to avoiding sexist language. “That is not something I do,” he said, referencing an accusation from members of Cooper’s campaign that he addressed them with a sexually offensive term. “It’s one of my biggest core values on this campus.” The topic made up much of the hearing’s discussion. Ingram received the most petition signatures of any of the candidates — 1,368 more than Cooper, who gathered the second-most. He is also the only candidate to have been punished by the board this year, having been previously fined $12.50 for dorm-storming before it was permitted under the board’s policy. In his closing statement, Lee said he regretted having to hold the hearing. “We made sure only to mention the things we felt most confident about,” he said. Cooper was less apologetic. “To me, this is a very serious issue,” she said. “Everyone on this campus needs to know what was said and what has been done,” she added. Cooper said in an interview after the punishment was announced that she was looking forward to getting past the allegations and moving to election day. “Tomorrow’s going to be a great day,” she said. “And it’s a new day.” Contact the University Desk at university@dailytarheel.com.

fluxus students make music from scratch
by GRaCE TaTTER
staff writer

A bottle of Nivea lotion is not a musical instrument. But tonight, it will be central to a performance at the Student Artery that highlights the musicality of everyday objects. Students in David Colagiovanni’s first year seminar, “Artist and Site,” will be performing a “FluxConcert” to display what they’ve learned thus far. The FluxConcert is co-spon-

sored by the Artery and the UNC Department of Art Fluxus — from which the FluxConcert evolved — is an art movement that blends the boundaries between art, music and everyday objects. It began in the 1960s by students of experimentalist composer John Cage. Fluxus event scores, like scripts, give the performers simple tasks from which unconventional music is created. They tend to be simple verbal instructions and can be as short

as one word, Colagiovanni said. One of the most famous FluxConcert’s is Yoko Ono’s “Grapefruit.” At one point, Ono instructs: “Hit a wall with your head.” “It’s like recipes for making a performance,” Colagiovanni said. “They’re all different.” Students will perform their own Fluxus event scores, as well as those composed by originators of the movement in the 60s. This is the first FluxConcert

put on by the art department, Colagiovanni said. Students have been studying Fluxus and composing their own scores since the beginning of the semester. Though only one student knew of Fluxus at the start of the class, now, most all are almost hyperaware of it, the students said. “Once you start writing your own score, you hear music everywhere,” said Margrethe Williams, a student in the class.

ru∞n-Pratt provides spark
stifles duke’s leading scorer
by Megan walsh
sEnior writEr

Duke
from PAgE 3

Bouncing from adrenaline, the North Carolina women’s basketball team gathered in a huddle for a final word of inspiration Monday before meeting Duke on the court in Carmichael Arena. “Rebound.” Ten minutes into the first half, it was clear sophomore guard Tierra Ruffin-Pratt was listening. “(Ruffin-)Pratt did a really good job defensively and rebounding,” UNC coach Sylvia Hatchell said. “She’s just playing better and better.” Ruffin-Pratt’s dominating presence led the Tar Heels by example under the basket as the 5-foot-10 Tar Heel earned five rebounds in the first half. Playing defense against Duke’s top scorer for the season, senior Jasmine Thomas, Ruffin-Pratt finished second in boards for the night and first in leadership and aggression. Ruffin-Pratt went on to pick up three key buckets to shift the momentum in the Tar Heels’ favor, as North Carolina went on to a lastsecond 62-60 victory against the Blue Devils. “I was just focused, like in the zone the whole game, starting with the defensive end and it just all turned over into the offensive end,” Ruffin-Pratt said. “I was making shots and giving people the ball when they were open, so it just got me going.” North Carolina took its first lead of the game, 21-20, as Ruffin-Pratt’s aggression turned two missed free throws by junior Laura Broomfield into a key play. Powering past a Blue Devil, the guard earned an offensive rebound and found open space to sink a momentum-changing jumper.

and Italee Lucas helped UNC rally back and go into halftime leading by one. In typical style, Lucas proved to be a vocal leader all night long. Five minutes into the second half and the shot clock winding down, the highly defended Lucas was searching to pass to a teammate. Seeing no one, she decided to take matters into her own hands. After a last-second rush to the basket, the next thing the senior heard was the buzzer-beating swish as the UNC lead increased to four. The Tar Heels had three andones in the final four minutes of the game, something the Blue Devils knew would come back to haunt them. UNC shot only 7 of 18 from the foul line, but when handed the opportunities late in the game, the Tar Heels took advantage of them. “I thought we didn’t win the battle of being smart,” Duke coach Joanne McCallie said. “I think there were three or four and-ones called at the end of the game, which is completely unacceptable and shows a lack of discipline on our part.” Though they struggled at the dth/Erin hull start, the Tar Heels showcased their discipline and team work in tierra ruffin-Pratt came off the bench to lead unC with eight assists and the closing minutes of the game. propelled the tar heels against the no. 5 Blue devils in Carmichael Arena.

Accents: a subtle form of flattery
ometimes I have a very Southern accent. Other times, it’s practically undetectable. And really it just depends on where I am and who I’m talking to. But it doesn’t stop at minor alterations in dialect, and it’s not only me. We all change various things about ourselves to adapt to a slew of very different social contexts. In essence, we’re adapting ourselves to please whomever we happen to be talking to. And while some remain critical of this social morphing, I think it’s a skill we need to welcome — at least as far as our verbalization. These automatic, unconscious shifts in language are evident in how we alter our vocabularies when speaking to children. And generally, the way you speak to friends at a party is not the same as the way you speak to a professor at office hours. Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair is known for delivering speeches in the accent of his audience — so much so that the accent he took on in some of his 1980s speeches bore no resemblance to his recent ones. Social psychologists title this copycat nature “the chameleon effect” and insist that it happens naturally and frequently because we feel a rapport with people who mimic not only our accents, but also our moves. While on the P2P the other day, my casual conversation with the person next to me was interrupted with a phone call. She quickly switched over to a Jersey accent for that conversation, and then back to her neutral Chapel Hill tongue after it ended. Comforting the caller in her native accent was probably all that caller really needed. Her mimicry was unconscious, unnoticed and harmless. It would typically be in our best interests to have pleasant relations with those around us. And if slight alterations in speech patterns can help, then why not use them? Therapists, salespeople and tons of other professionals are sometimes advised to use mimicry to help build relations with others. Imitating vocabulary, speech, rhythm, accents, posture and gestures can help ease communication. This chameleon effect reaches farther than just regional accents. New York University psychology professors Tanya Chartrand and John Bargh had college students discuss pictures with researchers. The experimenters were neutral and relaxed with half of the students. With the other half, experimenters mimicked their movements, posture and mannerisms. Afterward, imitated students reported that their experimenters were more likable and that they had smoother interactions with these researchers. Keeping that in mind, at an interview with Goldman Sachs for a summer internship, it would probably be wise to leave the “y’alls” and the twang behind. Not because a Southern dialect is anything to be embarrassed about, but instead because mimicry is one of the best forms of flattery, and it’s doubtful that the interviewer will be speaking “Southern.” In the end, the bulk of communication isn’t how we’re saying it — it’s what we’re saying. And if altering an accent helps get my point across, so be it.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Boe should disqualify ian lee for breach of code
TO THE EDITOR: On Friday, The Daily Tar Heel finally brought attention to one of the most blatant violations in Election Law (“Lee’s breach of the Code”). Ian Lee ran a presidential election campaign while maintaining his position as student body secretary. The student body secretary is in charge of updating the student code, advising the president and leading the student body. As such, the student body secretary must be an unbiased head of the student government. One cannot run for student body president without supporting a campaign and trying to advance a particular set of political interests. This directly conflicts with the mission of being a successful, unbiased leader of the student body. The Student Code explains that the student body secretary cannot run for student body president in two separate parts. The more important part of the Code, Title VI Article 3 Section 310, states that a campaign will be automatically disqualified “for Failure to Submit a Resignation for an Executive or Judicial Branch position.” Lee is currently running a campaign, but has failed to resign as student body secretary. According to the Student Code, his candidacy should be disqualified. Lee must step down as student body secretary if he would like to continue his campaign. If he does not, the Board of Elections clearly must disqualify him. Christine Hajdin Graduate Student Chemistry that is student focused and results driven, elect Ian Lee for Student Body President today. Olivia Hammill Junior Political Science and PWAD

We can work together to end violence in community
TO THE EDITOR: Thank you to the members of the Beta Theta Pi fraternity for intervening in the assault on a staff member last week. Their quick thinking, selfless deeds and willingness to act might have prevented a tragedy. While few of us may never be called upon to intervene so directly to prevent harm, it is important to remember that bystander intervention takes many forms. Each one of us can take action by speaking against violent language, by standing up for a friend or colleague being harassed or bullied and through the simple acts of listening and understanding others. Individuals can volunteer on campus or at the Orange County Rape Crisis Center, get HAVEN trained to support student survivors of interpersonal violence, or participate in One Act training to hone their skills in bystander intervention. One of the most important messages in our programming is that while we live in a society with violence, the majority of us are not committing acts of violence. The overwhelming majority of us are bystanders, not participants, to violence. This example of intervention by members of the fraternity shows not only that we can stop violence but that we can all work together to create a violence-free community. Shamecca Bryant Executive Director Orange County Rape Crisis Center

The Interview
eanna Santoro’s surprise resignation Monday morning from her role as speaker of Student Congress marks only the beginning of her effort to send shock waves through student government. Santoro is filing suit against the Board of Elections for failure to rule at all on certain sections of the Code and ruling improperly on other sections. Now that she’s in the game, Santoro wants an injunction on the results of today’s election until her case is resolved. It’s no secret that this has been one of the most tumultuous election seasons in recent memory. Two candidates — Rick Ingram and Ian Lee — have seemed to stretch the Student Code to its absolute limits, if not shattered them entirely. Yet the BOE has inadequately addressed these concerns. Election regulation doesn’t get more laissez-faire than this. Santoro, who resigned because those in her position are prohibited by the Code from making “any statement against a campaign or candidate,” airs her grievances in her virtually empty former office in the student government suite. Only a few personal items and snacks stacked in a chair are left to indicate anyone inhabited it.

Deanna Santoro fights for the spirit of the Student Code she spent years reforming
of the Code — an effort she continued until her resignation. As speaker, Santoro continued these reform efforts along with fellow Congress member Zach De La Rosa. Now that she’s gone, De La Rosa shouldn’t let that effort go. And he ought to consider pursuing future reform as speaker. But what good is reform when it isn’t enforced? After a final conversation last night with Andrew Phillips, chairman of the BOE, she sent out an e-mail to Congress announcing her resignation.

Santoro has become known for a stubborn reform-mindedness. She said she was inspired to join Congress after the controversy surrounding former speaker Tim Nichols and his abysmal leadership. Back then, Congress was ripe for change. As chairwoman of the Rules and Judiciary Committee she embarked on systematic reform

ian lee the right choice for student Body President
TO THE EDITOR: It’s once again time to elect the student who will represent our interests next year to administrators, trustees and the General Assembly. With times as tough as they have been for UNC, we need a strong student leader who cares about students. And UNC, that leader is Ian Lee. Ian has already done a lot for students, starting with his charge to defeat the construction of the infamous South Road bridge, soliciting more than 1,300 student responses in a survey and saving students some $8.1 million. And Ian wants continue saving students money by creating a study to make sure that students’ tuition is paying for the cost of education, and isn’t simply contrived to keep up with peer schools. With issues like free parking in Rams Deck after 5 p.m. for students, allowing meal plans in the Bottom of Lenoir and Alpine and Fix My Campus to provide students with a way to get real answers, Ian will make a tangible difference in the lives of students. More student groups have supported Ian than the other three candidates combined. With the support of Di-Phi, Sangam, the DTH, GPSF, RHA, College Republicans and the Computer Science Club, Ian has proven that he can work with students from all backgrounds. Ian has what it takes to be SBP, and I have the utmost confidence in him, his ideas and his overall message. If you want someone

in-state tuition needs to stay as low as possible
TO THE EDITOR: Austin Cooper argued in a letter on February 2 (“UNC should accept more out-of-state students now”) that UNC should raise instate tuition levels by $4,000 to match our peer institutions, the Universities of Virginia and Michigan. While this may seem like a common sense solution to budget issues, it is an inappropriate way of addressing North Carolina’s specific situation. Data from the US Census Bureau show that in the years 2007-2009, Virginia residents had the sixth-highest median household income levels in the country. Michigan was number 28; North Carolina came in at 42. Census estimates also show that students in Michigan and Virginia are significantly more likely to graduate high school than North Carolina students. UNC is a state university, not a national university. Its obligations are to the people of this state. Many North Carolina students simply do not have access to the same financial and educational resources as their peers in Virginia and Michigan, so it is all the more crucial that affordable, public post-secondary education be made available to them.

No shame for the Union
he UCommons fee increase referendum made it on today’s ballot. Although this board has endorsed the project itself, we have sincere problems with the way the Union conducted its campaign. Student body president campaigns may use up to $250. The Union used more than $1,300. SBP campaigns are prohibited from paying students to campaign. The Union paid student staff to gather signatures. While the Student Code charges the Board of Elections with regulating and policing campaigns, it lacks more specific rules for fee referenda. The Union took advantage of this gap and ran its cam-

UCommons is a good idea — its campaign was not
paign in a way that would clearly be in violation of the Student Code if student campaigns had done it. While an institution has a right to advocate on its behalf, it’s the utter lack of proportionality that has upset the student body — and rightfully so. With no funded and organized opposition, the marketplace of ideas that an election season is supposed to embody was markedly one-sided. Student Congress had the opportunity to fund Students for a Democratic Society to launch a counter-campaign, but the motion failed. Unfortunately, this left the student body with only one dominant perspective in what would be a major financial investment for the University. Students deserve the right to information about both sides of an issue — especially when a University institution with a large budget is in control of one side of the debate. Other controversial fees — such as the child care fee — have gone on the ballot without a juggernaut advertising campaign, yet the debate regarding the fee was robust to say the least. The Union’s missteps have not only exposed a gaping regulatory hole in the Student Code, they’ve also obscured a perfectly good project with an uproar about campaigning strategy. We hope students will look to the idea and not the marketing.
