Computer viruses continue to alarm students:
By Kristen MaUliard Contributing Writer Ever download an internal file only to find out that it s a virus designed to crash the computer or ruin its hard drive? The Computer Help Desk, located across from the mail room in the basement of Preston Hall, regularly posts current virus warnings, general information about where viruses originate from and tips on how to prevent infection of personal computers. The two mostfrequentsources of computer viruses are Internet or e-mail downloads, and files on peripheral devices such as floppy or Zip disks. Internet users should always be cautious about what and where to download; when the creators of viruses have access to a computer, not only will they inflict destruction on that system, but the virus may have the ability to replicate and spread itself to other people s systems via e-mail. . f If one s p.c. doesn t automatically scan downloaded files for viruses, a program such as Norton Antivirus needs to be installed as soon as possible to prevent loss of files and/or destruction of the computer s hard drive. It s also possible to virus-scan Zip or floppy disks before attempting a download. E-mail seems to be the central medium for virus infection. The concept of free entrance on most browsers basically welcomes any files from the net E-mail attachments may contain virus programs that can ruthlessly destroy an expensive system.! Therefore, always remember to be careful with attachments, both from unfamiliar sources and friends alike. Some viruses can reproduce and send itself to all people listed in an e-mail address book, so that messagesfroma familiar address may be suspect It s safer not to open attachments that contain an unusual style of message writing; if the recipient is still hesitant, it s best to e-mail the sender for verification before opening the attachment. Here are some more useful anti-virus tips, courtesy of the Computer Help Desk: strangers. f ~ Always be cautious when downloading Internet files. ~ Update anti-virus software regularly, t ~ Back up important computer files on a regular basis. ~ If in doubt about any potential virus-related situation, visit http://wwwf mcafee2b.com/ avert/avert-research-center/ contactasp ~ Never open anyfilesattached - Computer-sawy students may to an e-mail from an unknown, update virus software from suspicious or untrustworthy McAfee/Virex themselves at www.mcafee.com source. ~ Don t open files attached to The Computer Help Desk is an e-mail if the subject line is questionable or unexpected.

In light or the reported rape on Mercyhurst s campus Sunday morning, students are wondering why it took so long for the Mercyhurst community to get information about the incident The rape report was posted on the Mercyhurst intranet site late Tuesday, and there have been no e-mails sent to students or faculty alerting them to the situation. Commuters and offcampus students heard about the crime through Erie media, even though the suspect is still at large. Under the Federal Campus Security Act of 1990, college officials are obligated to compile crime logs and make them available to the public. Mercyhurst s crime logs are published each week in The Merciady and a hard copy is on file in the Police and Safety Office. Colleges must also submit annual reports to the federal government for publication in the Uniform Crime Report (UCR). Statistics are reported for 7 major categories of crime. [>;: The Security Act of 1990, better known as the Clery Act, was created and named in honor of Jeanne Clery, a Lehigh University freshman who was raped and murdered in her bed in 1986. After Clery s death, it was discovered that 38 violent crimes had occurred on the Lehigh campus m the previous 3 years," unbeknownst to students/ P^ The Act also provides for timely warnings to students of imminent threats to their safety and welfare. If colleges do not comply with these federal mandates, financial aid funding may be revoked, and other penalties may apply. Many students at Mercyhurst report they only became aware of the rape from hearing others talk about it or reading it in the local newspaper. There is no information posted in the class buildings, student union, library or other non-residential areas frequented by students. There have been suggestions made on several occasions that the campus be provided with the emergency call-box stations visible on other college campuses. Roger Gregorich, Dean of Public Safety, said the proposal had been made to the administration, and was turned down.

within the campaigns of local Democrat politicians, meetings with elected Democrat officials, and continued idea sharing and education of anyone interested I in the Democratic Party. The two enthusiastic sophomores that have taken on the task of starting the Mercyhurst College Young Republicans are Richard Antin and William VanCise. These two students have worked with their group advisor, Dr. Michael Federici. in theirfreshlywritten constitution the Young Republicans state their objectives as to include helping the future of the party through promotion of the party's philosophy and encouraging participation in the political process at all levels of government in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. This constitution was written to include the principles of the Republican Party of Pennsylvania. The activities planned for the year are bimonthly meetings to discuss the activities of the party and volunteerism in the campaigns of local Republican! politicians. This year promises to be an active year for those politically minded students interested in joining these two groups. Finally Mercyhurst has these two clubs to promote political awareness and encourage discourse between students favoring either ideology. The groups are already working on setting up encounters to debate current issues and policies. Only time will tell on how much these groups can accomplish but if predictions can be made based upon the enthusiasm of the groups'! members, the groups should be capable of making great strides toward their goals and supporting their respective parties.
Mother Teresea's Influence Takes Over
By Jennifer Ruffa Contributing writer While most of us spent our summer soaking in the sun, working to buy college books, and going to see Spiderman at our hometown cinema, two of Mercyhurst's seniors traveled away from the everyday ''problems** and into the reality of the outside world. Chantell Hemsley and Lisa Tredway independently arranged and financially provided for their own travels to aid others in need. Their finances came from their own pockets; both were graciously given private donations through York for the meantime. Her trip Mercyhurst College.

Hemsley traveled to the While in New York, Tredway northern and southern parts of worked at an all day camp for India beginning in late June and underprivileged children, lasting until mid August While teaching them about Jesus and there, Hemsley visited the bringing them closer to an Buddhist city of Bodhgaya | understanding of Christianity. where Buddha was known for Tredway lightheartedly recalls achieving his enlightenment, as moments when she would ask well as the Hindu city of the children questions Varnasi. In Varnasi she viewed the Ganges River, a holy burial Another unique aspect of concerning the Biblical stories r ground for the cremated in travel which Hemsley they had be told, saying that addition to a bathing ground. experienced is their different their answers were always that Along with touring these cities types of cuisine. Hemsley of "Jesus" "Mary" or "sin." and visiting the Taj Mahal, Hemsley made her way to the city of Calcutta where she cared for the sick and dying at Kalighat, which is most famous for Mother Theresa and her missionary work with the sick and dying. Hemsley aided the ill through administration of medicine along with providing them with comfort through conversation. Many of Kali ghats' occupants suffer from tuberculosis, AIDS, and cancer, in addition to severe mal nourishment to the point of emaciation. As a religious study major, Hemsley felt a calling to minister to the sick and experience a diverse culture of India. In the country, she was subjected to many extremes of civilization. In one instant she witnessed overwhelming beauty and the next moment severe impoverishment. At times she did not know whether she was enchanted or disillusioned by the sights she was witnessing. Constantly bombarded with sensory information, Hemsley went from smelling sensual incenses to garbage piled on the ground. discovered her strong preference Ifor southern Indian food in contrast to the northern alternatives. Her two favorites became Dosas or large, flat pancakes with a filling in the middle, as well as Chai which was a special tea containing milk and "loads of sugar" as she said. Hemsley hopes to return to India one day in the future. Also inspired by the incredible works of Mother Theresa, Tredway traveled to Harlem, New York this past summer to assist the Missionaries of Charity. Tredway's initial plan was also to travel to India which she temporarily postponed. A stronger calling led her to New Along with the Biblical teachings, Lisa also participated in activities including arts and crafts with the children. In New York, Tredway recalled television programs and movies she had previously seen throughout her life and how vivid and real the images actually are. She stated how one can never fully understand the poverty families are suffering until you are right in the midst of it all. This became a great eye opener for her as she had children who willingly informed her of their being victims of abuse. In contrast, there were also those who had great family structure yet still suffered from incredible poverty. Lisa plans on returning to the camp for a few weeks next summer. As college students, it is easy for us to forget the incredible suffering many experience on a daily basis. We become overwhelmed by our everyday stresses of studying, paying bills on time, and mending broken relationships. Lucky for us there are those individuals who take time out of their own lives and assist those with problems greater than we could ever imagine.

By Ky la J. Smith Contributing writer With the election season upon us, another reminder of partisan dichotomy is the emergence of a Young Republicans group on campus and the continued growth of the Mercyhurst chapter of Young Democrats. The Young Republicans group is the long-awaited brainchild of two sophomore] majors, while the Young Democrats group has been in existence for about two years now. While both clubs are still in the process of getting on their feet with this year's activities, the visibility of both groups is rising by the day. The Mercyhurst College Young Democrats were brought together for the first time as a small group in the 2000-2001 school year. Their activities included gaining a charter at the national level from the Young Democrats of America and having a "shindig" at the Metropolitan Club in downtown Erie with the Young Democrats of Erie County. This year the Young Democrats are led by President Morgan Tracy; Vice President Kirstin Kalidova. Sharing the responsibilities of both Secretary and Treasurer are Albert Vevrka Andrea Bauer; in addition to the officers Kyla J. Smith serves as the "hub" to the state and county level of the organization. Also contributing her knowledge, leadership, and organizational skills is Casey "CJ" Kilroy, who serves as the director of the Northwest region of Pennsylvania's Young Democrats organization. The faculty advisor, for the Young Democrats is Dr. Alice Edwards. The activities "in the works" for this year include more activities with the county and state wide groups of Young Democrats, volunteerism

vote for those bills that will positively impact the lives of poor and hungry, bills which will also affect people in our own country and other nations around the world. v Bread for the World, a Christian citizen s lobby against hunger, is based in Washington D.C and they suggest that we write, call or e-mail our legislators now and ask them not to come home without passing these three major pieces of legislation: The Hunger Relief Act, which extends food stamps to more than a million hungry people; a $1 -an-hour minimum wage increase, taking effect over two years; and finally the full application of the $435
million share the U.S. has for international debt relief so that the world s poorest countries can spend more of their money for adequate food, health care, schools and clean water. Now is the perfect time to use your power as a citizen in behalf of poor and hungry people on our planet. In these last few weeks before the November elections, our legislators in Congress are more receptive because they want to please us and win our votes in the elections. So, here s a chance to use your power as a citizen to help many hungry people. To send your message to your senators or representative you can either call the Capitol Switchboard (202-224-3121) or 2) email them from Bread For the World s website at

Examining the unexamined life
By Billy Elliott Production manager The unexamined life is a life not worth living, said Socrates. Truer words have never been uttered. If we just coast through 1 fe without giving any thought 1 to what we are doing, we are no better than cattle. We must not blindly accept that which is presented to us as news or fact. When a friend, the press or the Government tells of new happenings or news, we must not only question the validity of it but also question the context in which it is being passed along. News and facts are not unbiased. It is our duty to discover the underlying circumstances behind these facts. This is what will enable us to truly understand what we are being told, and why we are being told it. The circumstances that surround the news are just as important as the news itself, We are not told this information, though. We must search through all the facts thrown at us to find it. Once we do this we can see the bigger picture. Questioning the information presented to us is our civic duty. Jefferson once stated that for a democracy to work the populous must be educated and care. If we only care, then our nation cannot function as a democracy. Those people that are uneducated and care are those who end up in the rally around the flag syndrome, blindly following the ideas ofthe higher ups without a question. They believe that those in power care I think we need to reexamine those whom we call true Americans those people who choose to remain ignorant are not patriotic. Those people that respond with emotion instead of rational thought are not patriotic. These people are just idiots. The true Patriots are those people who are not afraid to stand up and challenge that which they find wrong. This is what the American ideology is about ^ freedom. If people choose to give up their freedom, they are not patriotic. In fact, they are not even citizens. They are leeches. It is Plato s allegory of the cave. We, the citizens, are those people who are chained to their seats, forced to stare ahead at a bare wall. There, we only see those shadows created by the people who are free and can know the truth. These people represent those in power, those with access to the Truth. % All we can see are the outlines ofthe truth that they show us. more about the right thing to do We are at the disadvantage. We must rise up and cast aside than their own jobs. This is why we must educate the chains of ignorance. It is our right, no, it is our duty to find ourselves. We must demand answers from the truth. those in power. If we let them We may find that some of our control the information we have beliefs are just false. It will be lost any chance we have in painful. g influencing their decisions. ^ But I would rather have the cold certainty of truth over the comfort of falsehood

as around 9:30 a.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays, when parking can be almost impossible. You can end up spending a huge amount of time driving back and forth between parking lots and then end up finally parking illegally. Such a search has now made you late for class and when you get back out to your car, you get the pleasure of dealing with the ticket stuck to your windshield. I wouldn't have such a problem with there not being enough parking if it wasn't for the fact that every student has parking fees billed in their tuition. B If all of us are charged to pay to park, if such attention is paid to make sure wallets get filled, then equal attention should be paid to make sure that what ALL of us are paying for is there to be had. Would you pay for something that is guaranteed on your bill if it weren't guaranteed on campus? No, but greed makes more sense then necessity. Maybe this situation will never change, at least not while I'm around to see it. But I would like to say that it would be really great if it did.

Campus Question: Second opinion
By Kerry Marshall Contributing writer little time for me to do much of anything. Let me take you through a typical day: I get up in the morning at about 6 a.m. and 1 go to work at 8 a.m. Then, at some point during the middle of my day, I leave for classes. Once I finish class, I am back to work again. Ifinishup the evening with a night class and by the time I get home, I am exhausted. I am willing to bet that if tuition was lower, I would be able to eliminate going back into work after classes; This would then give me the ability to maybe have somewhat of a social life and get a little sleep. ~ | I know that I am living in a dream world when I make such a request, because as we all know, tuition will continue to rise to the point where the Mint will have to make af new denomination (Garvey's face on the trillion dollar bill?) I That is why I decided to pick a second thing that Mercyhurst needs, and I find this to be a reasonable request: more parking! During parts of the day, finding a place to park is no problem. But there are other times, such
More public phones available. 1 remember needing to?use one and since I don t have a cell phone, it was my last resort Anyway, I finally found one in Old Main after searching many buildings and asking a lot of people. | Katie Tillma, freshman
More open-hours cafeteria. Maybe: late hours like after 8 p.m. Not everybody is able to go to the cafeteria for dinner because of classes and other responsibilities. Visar Ferali, junior I mink that Mercyhurst needs to have more flexible library hours, especially during midterms and finals weeks. Having the library open 24 hours is more convenient for finding a quiet place to study. Dayna Benm, junior Mercyhurst needs more activities to include more students in the college and the community. J Missy Hunt, sophomore More attempts to bring serious art students in. Thomas Gamble, sophomore
If you polled college students across the nation, I would be willing to bet that the number one thing that they would need more of would be money. Sex and/or alcohol would probably take a close second. At any rate, when I was asked what I mink Mercyhurst College needs that other colleges have, the first thing that came to mind was a severely lowered tuition. And with that in mind, the po wers-at-be should take notice, if they had any sense, to the needs of ail the parents and check books they bleed. Maybe this request is unrealistic, but I think it may be something worth looking into. I thought of what the benefits of such a decrease would be and aside from the obvious economic advantage to the student, the health and social benefits could be phenomenal. Since I started going to school at Mercyhurst, I have always had two jobs along with being a full time student. My life consists of work, school and then more work. This leaves
