COMMENTS:
GOOD PRODUCT! EXCELLENT VARIETY OF OVERALL CONTENT AND STORIES. EDITING
APPEARS SOLID. THESE ARE LARGE NEWSPAPERS FOR A CC, BUT THEY DONT DULL
DOWN AS THE PAGES PASS A CREDIT TO THE STAFF. LAYOUT AND DESIGN MAKES
GOOD STORIES AND PHOTOS ON THESE PAGES SNAP. LIKE WHAT I SEE.
OCT 26, 2011 LOVED TREATMENT OF SUPERNATURAL MICHIGAN, CIDER MILL,
FEATURED ARTIST, FIVE DECADES, A&E, FRIDAY NIGHT RENTALS AND GOING PINK.
GOOD SOLID INDEPTH PIECES ON REPEALED, OUT OF BALANCE AND BRIDGE TOO FAR.
GOOD VARIETY OF OPINION. HATS OFF TO SPORTS PHOTOS PLENTY OF QUALITY
THERE.
NOV 7 2011 JUST A SIDE NOTE HERE: YOU ARE RECEIVING A QUALITY PRINT JOB.
EVEN THE ADS JUMP OFF THE PAGES AT TIMES. EXCELLENT DEBATE ON BRIDGE TO
CANADA. LIKED THE SIDEBARS ON POLITICAL GRUDGE MATCHES. A NICE TOUCH.
N0V 21, 2011 NOTE TO EDITOR KING: VERY NICE JOB OF RESPONDING TO THE
PROFESSORS LETTER QUESTIONING THE TREATMENT OF A PHOTO IN A PREVIOUS
EDITION. PROFESSIONALLY DONE AND I LOVED THE TRANSPARENCY. NOTHING TO
HIDE FROM THE READERS.
VISIT TO THE COMPOST FARM WAS A INTERESTING READ BEAUTIFUL DOUBLE-TRUCK
ON SPORTS GRADS AT THE CC. LIKED FRIDAY NIGHT RENTALS (AGAIN) ON JOHNNY
DEPP, BUT WHERE WAS DONNIE BRASCO? AGAIN, SOME VERY GOOD SPORTS PHOTOS,
ESPECIALLY THE DUNK THAT LEADS OFF THE SPORTS PAGES.
SOME DRAWBACKS AND TIPS: REMEMBER, USE SINGLE QUOTES IN HEADLINES.
HEADLINE WRITING OFTEN COMES UP FAR TOO SHORT WRITE YOUR HEADS TO THE
MARGINS. PRINTING TEXT ON IMAGES AND/OR COLOR TONE IS TRICKY. AT TIMES,
YOURE OVERDOING THE TONE (TONING THE ENTIRE CAMPUS CRIME PAGE?).
REMEMBER, YOU CAN USE A GOOD THING TOO MUCH
OVERALL, A FINE PRODUCT!

NOTE: This review is based on one edition (Nov. 21, 2011).
1. This is an outstanding campus newspaper. It looks great and gives the reader a sense of
what Schoolcraft College and its students are all about. You have an expansive news hole
(almost unheard of today) and plenty of advertising. There is a little bit for everyone in this
publication. Lots of planning and effort go into this paper.
2. You make a decent attempt at editorial/commentary pages, but in the edition I saw, there is
no editorial. Why? Every newspaper must have a strong editorial presence.
3. There are too many first-person stories. Content using I should be on the commentary
pages or in columns, and even at that the use of I should be used sparingly. Its a crutch to real
writing.
4. There seems to be a lack of hard news in the paper. Do the trustees and administration do
anything? Much of the content has a feature approach, and you missed occasions to localize
stories to the campus (examples: Obama and student loans, Julia Ward Act, Google, etc).

As of Sepi. :o, ile coniioveisial
policy of Don'i Asl, Don'i Tell was
iepealed on ile giounds ilai ii is
unconsiiiuiional.
Since ile Unifoim Code of
Miliiaiy }usiice was signed inio law
by Haiiy Tiuman in iqo, lomosex-

foi disclaige. In iqq, Piesideni

Don'i Tell (DADT) as a compiomise

als io seive in ile miliiaiy.
Tle iiile desciibes ile policy
pieiiy well. No miliiaiy peisonal
oi appoinied official weie io asl
any seivice membei ileii sexual
oiieniaiion. Also, no membei of
ile miliiaiy was io disclose ileii
sexual oiieniaiion. Tleie is a iliid
paii io ile policy, "Don'i Puisue."
Ii means ilai, if ileie was specu-
laiion, only minimal invesiiga-
iion could be conducied in oidei
io deieimine ile oiieniaiion of

Anoilei measuie, "Don'i Haiass,"

Duiing ile eaily iqqos, as les-
bians and gays weie gaining moie

Li. Daniel Cloi, wlo lad been dis-
claiged because of lis sexual open-

"I ilougli ii was iidiculous,"
said Paul Beavei, Piesideni of ile

Beavei, in faci, siaiied lis mili-

wiil gay soldieis in combai siiua-
iions, and ilai ii affecied noiling.
"Wlo you cloose io love does noi
affeci youi paiiioiism."
Even in ile ligli of iis iepeal, ile

ilai, wiil ile figli in ile Middle
Easi being so cosily in ieims of
casualiies, ile aimed foices could
use all ile willing and able-bodied
men and women iley could musiei.
Miliiaiy opinion on ile policy is
diffeiing. In iqq, Admiial Ciaig
Quigley, a foimei Navy spolesmen,
said "lomosexuals aie noioiiously
piomiscuous." He weni on io noie
ilai leieiosexual men being foiced
io slowei wiil openly gay men
would be "uncomfoiiable."
Nicl Opalewsli, a siudeni ai ile

agiees wiil ile iepeal of DADT. "Ii
slould lave siayed ile way ii was,"
said Opalewsli. He weni on io add

"Tleie aie ilose wlo aie going

"Soonei oi laiei, |lomosexualiiy

Beavei poinis oui ilai oilei coun-

Welcome, ieadeis, io anoilei

issue iales you inside one of ile mosi
populai fall aiiiaciions, a Cidei Mill,
as I am given ile iasl of woiling a day
of doing odd jobs wlile iiying io avoid
being ciusled by an apple piess and
siung by bees. Tle lind people ai ile
Fianllin Cidei Mill in Bloomfield Hills
weie nice enougl io iniioduce me
io ile wondeiful woild of cidei mill
laboi. My day began ai ile ciacl of io
in ile moining wlen I was quiclly pui
io woil in ile donui aiea.
Have you evei seen ilai episode of "I
Love Lucy" wleie Lucy and Eilel gei
ile job ai ile clocolaie facioiy and
iley lave io leep up wiil ile conveyei
beli ilen slenanigans and li-jinls
ensue? Yeal. Now piciuie ile donuis
in ile place of Lucy's clocolaies.
I didn'i ilinl ilis was going io be
veiy difficuli. Pui on ile glove, picl
up iliee donuis, place ilem in ile
bag, picl up iliee moie. Lailei, iinse,
iepeai. Unfoiiunaiely, ilose conveyei
belis can cluin oui up io :oo donuis
in a baicl. Also, ii's pieiiy laid io picl
up iliee donuis ai one iime wiiloui
smasling one. And, doing all of ilis
one-landed? Disasiei waiiing io
lappen.
"Eveiyone ilinls ilis is so easy,"
said Kevin Miclaels, a donui malei
foi moie ilan :o yeais, "ilen iley
iiy ii oui and can'i waii io gei bacl io
oilei jobs."
Miiaculously, I was able io gei ile
lang of ii quiclly and did noi leave ile
cidei mill in debi fiom donui loss. Bui,
as soon as I was able io leave ile donui
ioom belind, I did so. Nexi siop: apple
giinding.
Fianllin Cidei Mill uses a wide
vaiieiy of apples foi ileii cidei - iypes
I laven'i even leaid of befoie. (Red
Delicious, Golden Yellow and Gianny
Smiil weie all I evei needed io lnow).
Tle apples aie sioied in a meial
loppei ilai leads io a veiiical con-
veyei beli. My job was io siand by ile
coniainei and waii foi ile go alead
befoie piessing ile buiion ilai iuined
ile conveyei beli on. Tlen I used
a siicl io pusl and piod ile apples
onio ile beli so iley'd iun up io ile
giindei. I lad io leep an eye oui foi
any bad apples and ii was difficuli ai
iimes io pusl ile apples as iley weie
quiie leavy. Tlis migli lave been ile
easiesi paii of ile day. Wlile ii goi
difficuli ai iimes, ai leasi ii was easy
io leep ile pace.
I followed ile giound apples
downsiaiis io wleie ile iemains aie
piessed inio cidei. Tle goop looled
lile applesauce and ii las io be spiead
evenly aiound a meial fiame so ilai
ii's piessed easily. Afiei eacl level of
ile "pulp" is leveled oui, ii's folded
up in soaled cloil and a plasiic cov-

five levels, foui planls of wood aie
placed ovei ile coveis and ile siacl is
moved undei ile piess wlicl slowly
squeezes down ile iieis of apples uniil
juice comes oui. Ai one poini, leaviei
planls of wood aie placed down and
ilis speeds up ile diaining piocess.
Tlis iied foi easiesi paii of ile day.
Howevei, ile planls of wood and ile
iale used io even oui ile goop weie
exiiemely leavy. If assisiance ladn'i

wouldn'i lave been able io do ii.
Tle final siop of ile day was my leasi
favoiiie: composi leveling. I was ialen

Yes, ilai's iigli . I walled aiound

given giani iubbei boois and I didn'i
sinl io ile boiiom of ile dumpsiei.
Of couise, noi sinling made ii ilai

Tley weie eveiywleie. Olay, maybe
noi eveiywleie bui ileie weie a loi.
Tle cidei mill woileis weie meiciful

Oveiall, ii was a pieiiy fun expeii-

Q. In my papei, iniioduciions aie

doesn'i lelp. Wlai slould I do?
Welcome io college wiiiing. Ii is
youi job io demonsiiaie a puipose by
cleaily siaiing ile iopic and defining
ile aigumeni oi pioblem. If you siiay
fiom focusing on ile puipose, you
will leave youi audience dazed and
confused.
Siaiing ile iopic calls foi specifi-
cally naiiowing down youi focus and
ilen defining ii. Youi iopic may call
foi some brieI baclgiound infoima-
iion ilai allows you ile fluency

will lelp you siay on iiacl iliougloui

Tlis sounds lile dauniing woil bui
wiil piaciice comes impiovemeni.
Wlen siudenis begin ieacling foi

sloi.
Q. I lave an essay due nexi weel
and I laven'i even siaiied. I lave no
idea wlai io wiiie aboui and I jusi
don'i lnow wlai io do. Help!
A. Wiiiei's blocl is a cuise lnown
by all bui undeisiood by few. Peilaps
youi lasi essay did less ilan dazzle
oi maybe ii was noiling sloii of biil-
liani. Eiilei scenaiio cieaies expec-
iaiions ilai can seem impossible
io oveicome. In laymen's ieims, ii
sounds lile you may be a bii gun-sly.
Succumbing io diead is ile woisi
iling you can do because ii will only
biing aboui ile end you so despei-
aiely wisl io avoid: failuie.
Tle only iling you can do is io

you piaciice wiil youi iopic, ideas will

Wiil someiling on papei, you can

And I'm noi going io lie - ile animal iescue com-

Howevei, I love people, ioo. Some of my besi
fiiends aie people. PETA doesn'i seem io slaie
ilose same affeciions. Ai eveiy iuin iley seem
io iiy and undeimine any soii of equaliiy and aie
insiead aie lell beni on maling lumaniiy oui io
be beasily.
Fiisi, lei us examine PETA's "Holocausi on Youi
Plaie" campaign. In ile campaign, giaplic, loi-
iifying images ialen fiom conceniiaiion camps
aie juxiaposed wiil piciuies of animals in loi-
iible living condiiions.
Lei's considei ilis foi a momeni. PETA
is compaiing ile muidei of millions of
innoceni }ews, blacls, gypsies, gays, eic.,
io ile lilling of pigs foi food. Aie we
seiious?
Naiuially, ile Anii-Defamaiion League
came down pieiiy laid on ilis disgusiing
display. Abialam Foxman, ile League's
naiional diiecioi (noi io meniion a
Holocausi suivivoi) wioie in a siaiemeni,
"Tle effoii by PETA io compaie ile delib-
eiaie, sysiemaiic muidei of millions of
}ews io ile issue of animal iiglis is abloi-
ieni. PETA's effoii io seel appioval foi
ileii 'Holocausi on Youi Plaie' campaign
is ouiiageous, offensive and iales cluiz-
pal io new leiglis."
Abloiieni is a pieiiy good woid and
Foxman's woids caiiy a loi of weigli. He is
mucl moie qualified io compaie anyiling io ile
Holocausi ovei anyone ai PETA. Ii's iiuly iiou-
bling ilai iley can basically exploii sucl a iling
jusi io gei aiieniion.
Heie's anoilei good one. Many moons ago,
PETA lad an Easiei-ileme campaign, feaiuiing
a billboaid of a pig, siaiing "He Died foi youi
Sin. Go Vegeiaiian." PETA, in iis many piepaied
siaiemenis io iiy and fend off ile ouiiage leveled
ai ilis campaign, claimed ilai iley lad many
ieligious-based billboaids and iley aie designed
io geneiaie compassion foi God's cieaiuies.
Soiiy, PETA, ilai's noi wlai's being seen by ile
level-leaded ilinleis. Wlai people see wlen
iley lool ai ilese billboaids is youi oiganizaiion
compaiing }esus Cliisi io a pig. As a Cliisiian,
ilis noi only offends me io ile umpieenil
degiee, ii males me feel sliglily sicl.
Now ii seems PETA las ieacled a new low.
Fiisi, a liiile baclgiound.
C.}. Wicleison was fiee diving in ile Anna
Maiia Islands wiil some fiiends. Regieiiably, ile
day ended badly wiil Wicleison being aiiacled
by a slail. Tle aiiacl lefi Wicleison loiiibly
wounded bui, 6oo siiicles laiei, le's iecoveiing.
So, wlai is PETA's iesponse io ilis loiiible
accideni? Compassion oi concein, you say? Nay,
ilese ilings aie beneail sucl a gioup as PETA.
Insiead, iley pui up billboaids, pioudly display-
ing a slail clomping on a luman leg wiil ile
woids, "Paybacl is Hell; Go Vegan."
PETA claims ilai ile ad is io biing aboui
aiieniion io all ile slails ilai aie lilled by
lumans, and ilai "slails aie noi ile mosi dan-
geious piedaiois on Eaiil. We aie," said PETA
campaign spolespeison Aslley Byine.
To summaiize, an animal ilai basically las
lnives in iis mouil, is made of puie muscle, and
is lell-beni on doing noiling bui consianily
eaiing is less dangeious ilan us f leslly, squisly

feel comfoiiable ialing oui ad space io piomoie
ile misiieaimeni of good ol' Moilei Eaiil, using
lei accideni as a cenieipiece? If I did, ilai would
be iepielensible, deploiable and wiong.
PETA needs io wale up, iale a siep bacl and
iale a long, laid lool ai ile loiiendous and
offensive iaciics iley employ in oidei io encoui-

bui ciude, offensive zealois. Noi io meniion,
ii males ilem lool lile lools. Be pio-animal.
Tlai's fine. Clallenge ile meai indusiiy. Raise
awaieness of ile misiieaiing of peis. Bui in youi
ciusade io leep me fiom my Baconaioi, don'i
become anii-luman. We'ie woiily of compas-
sion, ioo.
}usi ile oilei day I was walling wiil
fiiends iliougl a pailing loi. We weie
walling because we aie all able-bodied
ieenageis and we lappened io snag a
pailing spoi moie neai ile bacl of ile
loi, fuiilesi fiom ile sioie. Ii wasn'i
ilai big of a deal - walling is walling
and since we weie all oble-boJieJ teenoq-
ers, we could do so. And as we ciepi pasi
ile landicap pailing spois ai ile fioni
of ile loi (ile ones ilai people wlo ore
not oble-boJieJ use because walling is
aciually, you lnow, a problem foi ilem),
wlai do I see? Two ieenage giils lop oui
and wall iigli up io ile sioie.
Tle poini of landicap spaces is so ilai
people wlo lave disabiliiies, oi eldeily
people wlo siiuggle wiil long-disiance
walling, don'i lave io laboi as mucl.
Tley can slop ai any sioie iley noimally
would wiil ile added bonus of laving
a sloii and medically safe wall. Ii's noi
foi lazy ieeny boppeis io abuse because
ii's cold ouiside and ileie aie no pailing
spaces close enougl io ile sioie oi ii's
iaining and iley'ie ioially going io meli.
Tle mosi baffling paii: landicap
pailing passes aie noi a bieeze io
obiain. Accoiding io Micligan.gov, "A
qualifying disabiliiy is defined undei
Micligan law as eiilei blindness oi any
condiiion ilai significanily limiis a pei-
son's abiliiy io wall oi iequiies a wleel-
claii, wallei, ciuicl oi oilei assisiive
device." Ii's doubiful ilai someone can
waliz inio a docioi's office, pieiend
iley'ie blind and be gianied access io a
pass.
So low on eaiil did ilose giils ile
pass? Well, appaienily disabiliiy license
plaies (wlicl allow ile peison io pail
in ile landicap spoi) can be issued io
a family membei living wiil a peison
wiil a disabiliiy. Wlai I'm ialing fiom
ilis - and I lope I'm wiong - is ilai
ilose giils lave a family membei wlo
las a disabiliiy and aie abusing ile
powei of ile pass. And, lei's say iley do
lave a family membei wiil a disabiliiy.
Suiely, iley've gone oui wiil ilis family
membei and iun inio ile pioblem of
noi laving a pailing spoi because ile
spaces aie ofien exploiied.
And, accoiding io Secieiaiy of Siaie,
ii is illegal io pail in a landicap space
if none of ile occupanis of ile cai
lave a disabiliiy. Neiilei of ilose giils
needed ciuicles, a wleelclaii, a guide
dog, eic. Tley weie of able body and
yei iley pailed in one of ile few landi-
cap spaces ile pailing loi offeis. Ii's a
slame io ilinl ilai someiling ilai was
cieaied wiil good inieniions - io lelp
people wlo couldn'i safely wall long
disiances - is being abused because
walling acioss a pailing loi and inio

simply oveiwlelming.
Excuse me wlile I go ioll my eyes in

Foi ile :ooS eleciion,
Micligan was among many

Hampsliie and Iowa aie
iiadiiionally ile fiisi siaies,
followed by Souil Caiolina
and Nevada. Siaies sucl as
Micligan lave been moving
up ileii piimaiies in an
effoii io inciease ileii inf lu-

bui pusling up piimaiies is
noi wiiloui iis iisls. Many
siaies ilai lave clanged ileii

siiipped of all oi a poiiion
of ileii voiing delegaies (ile

Paiiy las iules, now ofien

will siiip lalf ile delegaies

iisl of losing delegaies, many
siaies aie ai ii again foi ilis

Tlis asseiiiveness on ile
paii of ile siaie paiiies iep-
iesenis a piofound clange in
ile way, and wlen, ile pii-
maiies aie leld. Since many
oilei siaies aie moving up
ileii piimaiies, in an aiiempi
io ensuie ileii posiiions,
Iowa and New Hampsliie
lave ialen effoiis io move up
ileii piimaiies. Tlis could
poieniially place ile fiisi
piimaiy inio Decembei of
ilis yeai. Accoiding io CNN,
Floiida is expecied io move
ileii piimaiy io }anuaiy i.
Floiida may considei

Febiuaiy bui ilai would
siill iesuli in ile loss of del-

numbei of oilei siaies ilai
lave iiadiiionally gone laiei
ilan Floiida ilai aie "ilieai-
ening io lold piimaiies oi

accoiding io CNN. Tlis will
iale ovei Floiida's iiadiiional
place as ai leasi being one of
ile eailiei piimaiies, leaving
ile cloice io eiilei move
ile piimaiy up fuiilei oi be
oveisladowed by oilei siaies.
Tlis places ile elecioial
piocess on a dangeious
pail. Campaigning begins
iouglly a yeai befoie ile
fiisi piimaiy. One las io asl
if ileie will eveniually be a
poini wleie afiei a biief lull
following ile piesideniial
inauguiaiion, campaigning
will begin foi ile nexi elec-
iion. Wlile ilis may lave
some appeal io poliiical
junlies, mucl lile ile appeal
of a yeai-iound fooiball
season io NFL fans, ii would
iale evenis wlicl aie sup-
posed io be significani and
iiivialize ilem, similai io
low laving a longei season
decieases ile impoiiance
of eacl individual game.
Fuiilei, siieicling oui ile
piimaiies could dampen ile
"bandwagon effeci," wleie
winneis of some of ile eailiei
piimaiies lave a gieaiei
clance of winning ile laiei
ones.
Usually ileie aie negaiive
connoiaiions io bandwagons
bui in ile elecioial piocess
ii allows a paiiy io con-
solidaie belind a candidaie.
Tlis unifies ile paiiy afiei
a piimaiy season filled wiil
faciionalism. If ile piimaiies
weie moie siieicled oui ii
would be possible foi candi-
daies wiil wealei suppoii, oi
f lavoi-of-ile-weel candidaies
(Baclmann and Cain come
io mind) io gain delegaies in
some of ile piimaiies. Since
laving any numbei of del-
egaies ai a conveniion males
one moie appealing foi ile
fioni-iunnei io siiile a deal
wiil ile candidaie wiil ile
delegaies - peilaps a cabinei

ilose delegaies and solidify
ile fioni-iunnei's clance ai
gaining a paiiy's nomina-
iion. Tle end iesuli could be
a moie divisive enviionmeni
duiing ile paiiy conveniions,
ilus maling eacl paiiy less
unified duiing ile geneial
eleciion. Tle woisi effeci
would be ile siieicling of ile
campaign season. Ii alieady
seems lile mosi poliiicians
aie campaigning yeai-iound,
pusling ile piimaiies up
and up would jusi codify ile
nevei ending eleciion.
As we wiiness ilis snowball
iolling downlill, gaining size
and momenium, one can'i
lelp bui ilinl siaies piima-
iies, in an effoii io become
moie ielevani, aie simply
maling ile eniiie piocess
iiielevani.
Tle NFL doesn'i seem io lile io siay wiil
one iling foi ioo long. Fiisi ii was ileii
unifoims, a siaple of ile fooiball ieam
expeiience. Now ii's ile ieam logos. Ii is
ile one iling ilai ile ieam is lnown by,
ile all impoiiani bianding of any oiganiza-
iion. NFL ieams aie clanging ileii logos .
bui wly? Teams lile ile Miami Dolplins,
ile (qeis and ile Lions lave all iecenily
clanged ileii logos, maling ilem sleelei,
meanei, fieicei and iouglei.
Tle Dolplins made ileii logo lose ile
ligli accenis and added dailei ioning,
even giving ile logo dolplin a menacing
siaie. (Have you evei mei a mean dolplin?
Does sucl an angiy beasi exisi?) Tle Lions
diew in some lines on ileii lion silloueiie,
affeciionaiely named "Bubbles," iesuli-
ing in a fieice-looling lion. Tle Housion
Texans dumped ileii bulllead logo foi an
"H" and "T" ovei ile siaie of Texas. All of
ilese clanges aie iniended io give ieams
an edgiei feel. Wlai ile ieams aie doing
is clanging low iley lool foi a new gen-
eiaiion. Wiil new unifoims, of couise
ile ieam bianding soon follows. Wiil ile
clange of ile logos, ii's almosi as if ile
ieams feel ile need io clange ileii game
plans and, lopefully, impiove ile ieam's
foiiunes. (See :oii Deiioii Lions.) Having
alieied ileii logo, along wiil ile fioni
office, coacling siaff, some playeis and
ieam plilosoplies, ii iool ile Lions jusi
iliee yeais io go fiom losing io an eaily-
season juggeinaui. Tle new veision of
Bubbles symbolizes a iebiiil of ile oigani-
zaiion and ile piomising days alead.
Wlai aboui ile ieams ilemselves? Wiil
eveiyiling clanging aiound ilem, wlai do
iley ilinl aboui ile logo design clange?
An idea is ilai ile logos aie maling ile
ieam bacl up ile new logo's meaning. Tle
idea is ieally inieiesiing because ii jusi
males ile ieams seem mucl coolei. Ii's
ile new age of eveiyiling and anyiling
spoiis, so I'm all foi ilis idea ilai ile
naiional ieams gei new logos. Tle spoiis
woild is ieady foi clange, so eveiyiling
can be swiicled up, ile biggei ile beiiei.
Tle playeis seem io be ialing ile clanges
well. Bui ilen low do ile fans feel aboui
ile clanges io ile logo of ileii favoiiie
ieam? I ilinl ile fans will be exciied ilai
ileii ieam is geiiing an upgiade. Ii's going
io woil lile a placebo, lile laving a lucly
ciiclei, (an old folliale good lucl sign io
lave) io ensuie ilai ileii ieam will win.
Well, as a fellow fan, I can see ilai some
fans will noi be lappy wiil ile clanges,
bui ilai doesn'i maiiei; ile majoiiiy of fans
will be pleased wiil ile diieciion of low
ile ieams' logos will lool beiiei on ile uni-

way ilai iley can move foiwaid, iley'll jusi

Imagine ilai you aie ieiminally ill.
You leain ilai a massive donaiion las
iecenily been made io combai ile
veiy disease ilai is lilling you. Tlis
donaiion will go iowaid ile develop-
meni of new iieaimenis and iiials
wlicl could poieniially save youi life.
How mucl do you caie wleie ilai
money came fiom? Would you deny
youiself iieaimeni if ii was paid foi
by an oiganizaiion you don'i believe
in? Would you deny someone else
ilis lifesaving iieaimeni?
Recenily, ile seculai lumanisi
oiganizaiion Foundaiion Beyond
Belief (FBB) aiianged io iaise money
foi ile Ameiican Cancei Socieiy
(ACS) iliougl ileii Relay foi Life
piogiam, seiiing a goal of s:o,ooo.
Tle idea was speaileaded by pli-
laniliopisi and FBB suppoiiei Todd
Sieifel. To fuiilei aid ile effoii,
Sieifel and lis failei offeied io maicl
wlaievei was iaised, up io anoilei
s:o,ooo.
Iniiially, ile FBB was allowed as a
naiional ieam in ile Relay foi Life.
Suipiisingly, soon afieiwaid ile ACS
suddenly baclpedaled and iefused
ile oiganizaiion ile abiliiy io join
and iaise money as a naiional ieam.
Tlis piompied suspicions ilai ile
ieason migli be ilai ile ACS was
uncomfoiiable wiil ile anii-ieligious
naiuie of ile oiganizaiion - ii is
called ile Foundaiion Beyond Belief,
afiei all. In a iesponse io ilis ciiii-
cism, ile ACS seni an official siaie-
meni announcing ilai ile ieason
foi ile clange was ilai "Relav For
Lifes National Team Program [...] is a
program for corporate donors and sup-
porters. The Foundation Bevond Belief
is not a corporate entitv [...]`
Unfortunatelv, as several have pointed
out, ile FBB is a oi(c)() non-piofii
coipoiaiion. In faci, lad ii been
allowed io join as a naiional ieam, ii
would lave sai alongside seveial non-
business "coipoiaie eniiiies," includ-
ing Sigma Alpla Lambda, wlicl is a
"oi(c)() non-piofii leadeislip and
lonois oiganizaiion." Tle ACS was,
of couise, siill willing io accepi ile
lalf-million - iley jusi weien'i ieady
io aclnowledge Sieifel oi ile FBB.
Tleie is a clance ile ACS's deci-
sion migli lave noiling io do wiil
ile non-ieligious siance of ile
FBB, alilougl iley lave yei io fully
explain ileii ieasoning. Howevei,
if ile ACS ieally did deny ile FBB
because of noi waniing io be associ-
aied wiil sucl an ouiwaidly seculai
gioup, FBB slould be accusiomed io
ile iieaimeni. Accoiding io ile oiga-
nizaiion's Execuiive Diiecioi Dale
McGowan, "Tlis is noi ile fiisi iime
we lave been declined by an oigani-
zaiion we lad loped io suppoii - ii is
ile fouiil, in faci - noi is ii lilely io
be ile lasi."
Ii is common foi non-piofii oiga-
nizaiions io dissociaie ilemselves
wiil ceiiain gioups wleie iley feel
an associaiion would be deiiimen-
ial io ileii image. PETA would be
unlilely io sponsoi ile Nailan's Hoi
Dog Eaiing Coniesi, foi example.
And ilai's faii enougl if ii goes
againsi ile coie beliefs of youi
gioup. Howevei, wlen youi coie
belief is "lelp eveiyone eveiywleie,"
ii becomes veiy difficuli io jusiify
iuining down suppoii. And yei, ii's
noi unleaid of - fai fiom ii.
In :ooS, ile Uniied Naiions
Woild Clildien's Fund (UNICEF)
announced ilai ii would siop accepi-
ing donaiions fiom diamond mogul
Lev Leviev because one of lis com-
panies was allegedly involved in ile
consiiuciion of Wesi Banl seiile-
menis. Tle decision was liglly ciiii-
cized and desciibed as a "move |ilaij
smacls of seleciive poliiical dis-
ciiminaiion," accoiding io ile Anii-
Defamaiion League of New Yoil. And
in :ooy, ile Canadian Cancei Socieiy
iuined down money ilai was iaised
foi bieasi cancei ieseaicl because
ile fundiaiseis weie exoiic danceis.
(I could male a piily jole leie bui,
fianlly, I'm ioo annoyed.)
And especially foi a gioup as
widespiead as ile ACS, io even
give ile impiession ilai you migli
be piejudiced againsi any gioup is
idioiic. Wlile ii may siill be socially
accepiable io basl ile non-ieligious
and anii-ieligious in ilis piimaiily
Cliisiian couniiy, ii doesn'i clange

ing io ile Pew Reseaicl Ceniei). If
you'ie iiying io ieacl oui io as many

It came from the cold
Fiom piequels io iemales, ii seems as if ile 'Sos
movies aie noi being lefi in ile 'Sos anymoie. Bui
can we blame ilem? Wlo doesn'i wani io go bacl
io ile eia of laii meial and "Tle Goonies?" "Tle
Tling" deiails ile giisly demise of a ieseaicl ieam
in Aniaiciica wlo discovei an alien ilai can eai,
absoib and peifecily ieplicaie iis viciims. Tle film is
ieclnically a piequel io }oln Caipeniei's iqS: sci-fi]
loiioi film of ile same iiile. Wlile ceiiainly noi
on ile same level as ile oiiginal culi classic, "Tle
Tling" is siill saiisfyingly cieepy.
Tle film, as a piequel, iales an odd appioacl io
flesling oui ile baclsioiy of ile 'Sos oiiginal. Tle
ploi is almosi exacily lile Caipeniei's veision, wiil
ile excepiion of ile ending. }usi lile iis piedecessoi,
ile ploi of "Tle Tling" cenieis aiound ile claiac-
ieis figuiing oui wlo is luman and wlo isn'i. Ii's
punciuaied by iniensely violeni body loiioi scenes
as a seemingly innoceni Noiwegian iuins inio a
monsiei io devoui somebody. Tle clicle scieniisi
wlo demands io siudy ile lillei alien suifaces, bui
ilanlfully doesn'i plague ioo mucl of ile movie.
Unfoiiunaiely, ile ploi is so close io ile Caipeniei's
veision ilai ilis one seems siale and uninspiied.
Some scenes aie diiecily iipped oui of ile old
classic, lile ile scene wleie ile ieseaicl ieam
siands aiound ile buining iemains of one of ilose
"ilings" and discuss ilai someone migli noi be wlo
iley seem.
Caibon copy ploi aside, ile film iiself siill las
meiii in ile way of clills and iliills. Tle cieepy
aimospleie is wondeiful and ile iension beiween
ile claiacieis is faniasiic. Wlile Maiy Elizabeil
Winsiead is no Kuii Russel, lei peifoimance is fine
foi ile movie. Tleie aie pleniy of jump-oui-of-youi
seai momenis and enougl iniiigue io leep you
inieiesied iliougloui ile eniiie film. Tle special
effecis lool inciedible compaied io ilose fiom ile
iqS: veision, and ile iiansfoimaiion scenes aie jusi
as gioss, ovei-ile-iop and violeni as any fan could
lope foi. Tle desolaie, fiozen landscape also adds io
ile mood wondeifully.
Unfoiiunaiely, ile movie fizzles oui wiil a medio-
cie ending. Tle suiviving membeis of ile ieam
encouniei ile "iling" in an unusual seiiing ilai
males foi a bizaiie and laigely unexplained climax.
Tleie is ai leasi one legiiimaiely suipiising iwisi,
wlicl is iefiesling afiei a gen-
eially piediciable movie. Tle
film does a deceni job of iying in
wiil ile iqS: film, bui leaves a
loi of ploi loles and ambiguiiies
in doing so.
All in all, ilougl ile movie
seems moie lile an updaied
veision of Caipeniei's film ilan
a iiue piequel, ii is siill a fun
iliill iide. Ii's noi beiiei ilan
ile culi classic we all lnow and

"Cliisiian band," bui moie "liiuigical
posi iocl." Tley lave iocled ii oui
wiil eleciiic guiiais all ile way down
io acousiic, violins, pianos and a loi of
ambieni sounds.
Do noi expeci io leai ilem on ile
iadio and iley don'i expeci io leai ilem-

of ileii music - noi iiying io confoim
io wlai an indusiiy may wani ilem io

Gungoi aie self pioclaimed iisl ialeis.
Tley aie biealing a new baiiiei of wlai
people peiceive woislip music io be.
Befoie you dismiss ilis album based
on wlai genie oi iype of music iley
aie, ilis CD deseives a clance. Gungoi
iales you on a jouiney wiil lyiical
aiiisiiy and iniense - and ai iimes
even dail - insiiumeniaiion. Ii dem-
onsiiaies noi only ile beauiy in life bui
ile fiailiy ilai we someiimes fail io see.
Ai ile beginning of ilis CD you find,
"Lei Tleie Be," a song wiil few lyiics
bui poeiically liiiing ile message
lome. "Wale Up Sleepei" closes ile CD
oui as a love song.
"Glosis Upon ile Eaiil" was
ieleased ilis pasi Sepiembei and ile
iiile was inspiied by C.S. Lewis's "Tle
Gieai Divoice." Tlis album is a follow

Music Is Better Than Words"
Genre: Swnq/Bq honJ
Tleie was a iime wlen ile big
band sound iuled ile aii waves and
Fianl Sinaiia was a god amongsi men.
As iime weni on ilai siyle of music
slowly disappeaied. Tle need foi big
bands weie losi and Sinaiia was simply
wiiiien down in lisioiy insiead of on
ile Billboaid Claiis. All seemed losi
uniil unlilely leio Seil MacFailane,
cieaioi of "Family Guy" and "Ameiican
Dad!" appeaied wiil lis new album
"Music is Beiiei ilan Woids."
Seil MacFailane is lnown io many
foi lis unique lumoi and voiceovei
woil, bui afiei lisiening io ilis album
ii is obvious ilai le is moie ilan a
meie animaioi. He is an lonesi io
goodness vocalisi. "Music is Beiiei
ilan Woids" las noiling io do wiil
"Family Guy" and is no jole. Ii is a
iiibuie album io ile golden age of
big bands, feaiuiing a seleciion of old
Bioadway and movie slow iunes wiil
a liiile added swing.
MacFailane iool ile iime io male
ile album sound lile an old swing
album and ile iesuli is aciually pieiiy
inciedible. He aciually iecoided in ile
same sound booil and wiil ile same
micioplone as Sinaiia. His voice is
amazing and veiy similai io ile old
swingeis fiom bacl in ile day. Ii fiis
peifecily io ile song cloices and jusi
sounds beauiiful.
Ii is nice ilai Seil did noi use ile
same songs as lis idols lile "Come Fly
wiil Me" oi "New Yoil, New Yoil"
- eveiyone las leaid ilose songs a
ilousand iimes befoie. Howevei, ile
majoiiiy of songs le did cloose aie
jusi bad and easily foigoiien. Tleie's a
ieason few people lave coveied ilese

iieasuies on ile album. Tle besi iiacl
is "Tle Saddei Bui Wisei Giil," a covei
fiom "Tle Music Man." Ii las eveiy-
iling a pop swing iune needs and ii
males you wani io gei up and dance

is a iimeless song and ii plays jusi lile
Sinaiia's veision. Seil Macfailane las
many ialenis as an animaioi, sioiy-
iellei and comedian, and now le can
add piofessional singei io lis iesume.
The Bottom Line:
"Music is Beiiei Tlan Woids" is
a deceni iiibuie album and Seil
Macfailane's singing clops will sui-
piise eveiyone. Wlile ile majoiiiy

Foi many baseball fans, a

defeai ai ile lands of ile Texas

be leaiibieal-
ing. Foi ile
Deiioii
Tigeis, a ieam piedicied by only
6 oui of ( ESPN baseball wiiieis
and analysis io even male ile
posiseason, :oii pioved io be a
iiuly memoiable season ligl-
liglied by ile inspiiing piicl-
ing of siaiiei }usiin Veilandei,
ile slam-ile-dooi peifeciion
of closei }ose Valveide and ile
coniinued slugging excellence of
Miguel Cabieia.
By ile way,
ile Tigeis
managed io win q games and
iale ile Ameiican League
Ceniial Division iiile by i games,
ile laigesi diffeieniial in any
division in baseball. A ieam many
consideied io be on ile downside
suddenly seems a lilely favoiiie
foi :oi:.
Heading inio ile offseason,
ile Tigeis lave a few ley posi-
iions all bui locled up foi spiing
iiaining. Baiiing any majoi
iiades - and Geneial Managei
Dave Dombiowsli is lnown foi
slaling ilings up in a big way -
ile Tigeis will eniei nexi season
wiil a solid coie of siaiiing
piicling (Veilandei, Biad Fisiei,
Max Scleizei and Ricl Poicello),
an iniimidaiing baclend of ile
bullpen (}oaquin Benoii and
Valveide), plus a diamond-ful
of all-siai ialeni in ile field
(Alex Avila, }lonny Peialia,
Vicioi Maiiinez and Cabieia)
in addiiion io developing ialeni
in ile foim of Ausiin }aclson
and Biennan Boescl. Tlese
playeis male all of ilese posi-
iions of siiengil foi ile Tigeis.
Depending on wlicl playeis can
be acquiied via iiade and fiee
agency, ilis ieam could easily
become a poweilouse in ile
Ameiican League.
Befoie ileie can be addi-
iions, ileie will be subiiaciions.
Foiiunaiely, as fan-favoiiie
playeis exii, so do ileii bloaied
coniiacis. Cailos Guillen,
Magglio Oidonez and Biad
Penny lave all lilely played ileii
final games as Tigeis. Tlai's s:6
million off ile payioll leaving
Dombiowsli a loi of ioom io
opeiaie wlen signing playeis.
Lefi fieldei Delmon Young will
piobably ieceive a iaise. Tle
same foi ielief piiclei Plil Cole.
Tlai leaves a bullpen sloi oi
iwo, ile final ioiaiion spoi (ilai
migli be filled by a young aim
fiom ile minois) and second
base as ile only vacancies on ile
iosiei. And if Dombiowsli feels
ambiiious, ile ieam can piobably
impiove upon Biandon Inge ai
iliid base. Ownei Mile Iliicl las
alieady publically vowed io spend
money io leep ile ieam com-
peiiiive. Tlai's a gieen ligli foi
Dombiowsli io slop foi playeis
ovei ile Cliisimas lolidays.
So Tigei fans can pacl away
ileii lucly jeiseys and baseball

ile iempeiaiuies diop and iain

Tle video ienial woild was in an

Neiflix announced ii was spliiiing iis

eis io slell oui double ile money iley

announced ilai iley weie spliiiing
inio iwo diffeieni companies wlicl
would iequiie subsciibeis io mainiain
iwo sepaiaie accounis, one foi DVDs
by mail and anoilei foi siieaming

disappoinied and confused by ile
announcemenis.
Tlen Neiflix announced iley weie
noi going io splii.
So wlai now? Will subsciibeis siill
be iequiied io pay foi iwo diffeieni
accounis? How mucl will eacl plan be?
Wiil ilis inconvenieni new plan, will
ile "waicl insianily" video libiaiy be
expanded? Wlai is ile fuiuie of Neiflix?
5uccess of a vision
Neiflix was esiablisled in ile laie
'qos. Co-foundei Reed Hasiings was
moiivaied io siaii ile business afiei
ieiuining lis copy of "Apollo i" io a
video ienial sioie and being claiged
a laie fee. Fasi foiwaid io :ooq and
Neiflix was boasiing a wlopping
ioo,ooo iiiles and well ovei io million
subsciibeis. Cusiomeis male a lisi,
oi queue, of movies iley wani io see.
Eacl iime ile subsciibei sends bacl
one DVD, ile nexi in ile lisi is seni
oui. Cusiomeis can also leep ile
DVDs as long as iley wani. Neiflix
also feaiuies ile abiliiy io siieam a
wide libiaiy of movies and ielevision
slows diiecily io cusiomeis PCs, Wii,
PlaySiaiion and Xbox 6o.
Ii would seem ilai Neiflix lad a
good iling going. Wiil a luge follow-
ing, and a pleiloia of DVD iiiles in iis
libiaiy, Neiflix was an evei expanding
wealil of enieiiainmeni. Hasiings was
consideied by many io be a maileiing
genius. Tlen, oui of nowleie, some-
iling lappened.
One company, two directions
In an email seni oui in }uly, cusiom-
eis weie infoimed ilai, insiead of

movies and an addiiional s: foi eacl
DVD deliveied, subsciibeis would now
be iequiied io pay sS foi siieaming
and sS foi DVDs, a ioial of si6 a monil.
Tlis angeied a loi of Neiflix cusiomeis.
Some feel Neiflix cieaied a monopoly
on ile video ienial business. "Tley've
almosi iun all ile oilei ienial places
oui of business and now iley lave ile
fieedom io iaise ileii piices lowevei
ligl iley wani," said Loii McDonougl,
a Scloolciafi siudeni.
Many consideied ieiuining io
alieinaiive souices, lile Red Box and
iiadiiional video sioies. Neiflix las
affecied biicl-and-moiiai sioies bui
noi io ile degiee people would ilinl.
"Oui of all ile video sioies, we'ie
doing ile besi," said Amanda Allie,
an employee ai ile Faimingion Hills
Family Video.
The fa||out
Tlose ai Neiflix lave siglied ile

well as ile iise in compeiiiion. Looling
io gei oui of ile business of mailing

would be spliiiing inio iwo seivices,
wiil Neiflix being ile siieaming seivice
and Qwilsiei being ile seivice ilai
landled ile DVDs by mail. Howevei,
Qwilsiei nevei saw ile ligli of day. Tle
company expeiienced immediaie bacl-
lasl and a loss of Soo,ooo subsciibeis in

of ile exodus in sigli, Hasiings lad io
bacliiacl.
"Ii is cleai ilai foi many of oui
membeis, iwo websiies would male
ilings moie difficuli, so we aie going
io leep Neiflix as one place io go foi
siieaming and DVDs," wioie Hasiings
on Neiflix's blog, Oci. io. "Tlis means
no clange: one websiie, one accouni,
one passwoid . in oilei woids, no
Qwilsiei. Wlile ile }uly piice clange
was necessaiy, we aie now done wiil
piice clanges."
"We undeiesiimaied ile appeal
of ile single websiie and ile single
seivice," said Sieve Swasey, a Neiflix
spolespeison.
Going forward
In a piess ielease, Hasiings said
le believes ilai "ileie is a diffei-
ence beiween moving quiclly |.j and
moving ioo fasi, wlicl is wlai we did
in ilis case."
Some of ile deiails of flip-flop splii
aie siill up foi giabs. Tleie weie ialls
aboui Qwilsiei poieniially offeiing
video game ienials as well. Swasey
says ilis is siill io be deieimined.
As Neiflix iiies io piess foiwaid,
some ilings good and bad aie seen
ii iis fuiuie. Tlis winiei, Neiflix is
expeciing io iemove Disney and Sony
owned films fiom ileii libiaiy, due io

Howevei, Neiflix las woiled iliougl

well as a deal allowing ilem io siieam

also ialls of Neiflix siaiiing iis own
oiiginal piogiamming.
Tle debaie beiween using ienew-
able, clean eneigy souices veisus
non- ienewable fossil fuels is a loi
buiion issue ilese days. A big paii of
Piesideni Obama's oiiginal campaign
piomise was io invesi sio billion ovei

ile implemeniing of gieen jobs. Tleie
aie many naiions ilai alieady use

ilai alieinaiive souices of powei
aie needed. By finding ienewable
iesouices, ile Uniied Siaies could
become independeni of foieign oil
and alleviaie ile polluiion of fossil

Ovei in Ypsilanii, ileie is a giowing
movemeni io gei many of ile local

"Eveiy yeai in Micligan, siS billion

"In Micligan . ile sun is iigli

Tle goal of

Common Nouns vs. Proper Nouns
Emily Diclinson, a piolific poei of ile
mid-iSoos, lei ile naiion lnow wlai ii
meani io be a woman in ile pioneei days.
Hei poeiiy is lnown foi iis slanied ilymes
and unusual capiializaiion and punciuaiion.
Howevei, you aie noi Emily Diclinson.
Tleie aie seis of iules ilai govein wlicl

slould noi. In Emily's woild, appaienily
all nouns weie cieaied equal, and peilaps
sle did ilis io commeni on ile social
coniexi in wlicl sle wioie. Howevei, in
ile Englisl language ilis is noi ile case.
Nouns aie biolen up inio iwo classes:
piopei and common nouns.
Tlinl of piopei nouns as ile aiisiociais.
Tley musi be noiiced and iley musi siand
oui, and ile way io do ilis is io capiialize.
Piopei nouns aie specific. Tley ideniify
a paiiiculai place, peison oi iling, sucl
as biand names oi a peison's piofessional
iiile. Peilaps you love ile mid-nineieenil
ceniuiy poeis (common noun), and youi
paiiiculai favoiiie is Emily Diclinson
(piopei noun). Do you lave a favoiiie pio-
fessoi (common noun)? Is ilai Piofessoi
Smiil (a piopei noun)? If ile noun does
noi poini io a specific, is noi ile fiisi woid
of a senience (offeiing insiani nobiliiy) oi
woids in a iiile (wlicl aie woid maveiicls,
iley play by ileii own iules), ilen you do
noi capiialize.
Forma| vs. Informa| Language
Wlen you clillin' wiil peeps, infoimal
language is ioially legii. Wlen you aie
fiaming a documeni foi academic puiposes,
infoimal language is quiie inappiopiiaie and
indeed fiowned upon. As socieiy becomes
evei moie casual, ii is incieasingly difficuli
io iell ile diffeience beiween foimal and
infoimal language. Hopefully, wiil ile lelp
of a few guidelines, ii can become easiei.
Lei us use a simple dinnei scenaiio io
analyze ile diffeiences beiween foimal and
infoimal language.
You: Since we'ie biole, we can'i go oui foi
dinnei.
In ilis example, ile mosi glaiing pioblem
is ile use of coniiaciions. Fiom ilis poini
foiwaid, ii may be useful io foigei aboui
coniiaciions all iogeilei. Some piofes-
sois may penalize siudenis foi using ilem.
Also impoiiani io poini oui leie, ile woid
"biole" is slang, and is unaccepiable in
foimal Englisl.
You: Wlai you wani foi dinnei?
No slipping woids! Wlile ilis pliase
is fine wlen you aie among fiiends, you
would do beiiei io asl youi boss "Wlai
would you lile io eai foi dinnei?"
You: Tleie was ilis aiiicle I iead .
Foi poliie dinnei conveisaiion, ilis
simply will noi do. Foimal Englisl calls foi
ile use of ile ielaiive pionoun "ilai," as
well as a piefeience foi ile pieseni peifeci
iense. You slould iall aboui "an aiiicle
ilai I lave iead."
Peilaps you aie noi planning a foimal

On ile issue of wleilei ii was

ilai ile legislaiuie is liieially ialing

Alilougl some iecipienis of

Piesideni and CEO of ile Micligan

"Tleie is a loi of confusion, a loi

Afiei being in ile woilplace, I lave
leained ile answei io life and ile univeise
(and ii's noi (:): Eveiyone in ile woild
slould woil in ieiail. Seiiously. In my
eniiie yeai in ile woilfoice, I lave leained
io lave moie paiience, good people slills
and muliiiasling piowess ilan in my eniiie
pievious iS yeais of living.
Paiience is a musi foi any caieei pail.
Dealing wiil clienis, dealing wiil siu-
denis, dealing wiil co-woileis. I cannoi
even begin io desciibe ile amouni of lead-
acle inducing nonsense I pui up wiil on a
iypical five-loui slifi. Bui I lave leained
io giii my ieeil and smile iliougl all ile
quesiions ("I said aisle five, ma'am . eveiy-
iling is a dollai . we'ie piobably oui . no
I'm noi lying.") all wlile leeping any iiace
of coniempi oui of my voice.
I plan on becoming a ligl sclool Englisl
ieaclei and I cannoi waii io use my new-
found paiience as I lelp siudenis wlo
siiuggle iliougl ile maieiial oi even ile
ones wlo inveni obviously fale lome-
woil excuses. Bui ii's noi jusi ieacling.
Reseaicleis need bundles of paiience io
conceniiaie on ile iasl ai land and noi gei
discouiaged if ileii findings don'i come up
ile iigli way.
People slills aie also a musi foi any
caieei pail. To be able io ielaie io
someone, even someone scieaming in youi
face, and io iemain levelleaded in any
scenaiio is a majoi plus. I've leained ilai
people iespond well io "sii" oi "ma'am,"
ilai ii is exiiemely iude io be on ile plone
wlen you'ie being iung oui, and ilai a
smile can go a long way.
Being a ieaclei, I' ll need io ielaie io my
siudenis, male ilem feel lile iley can
come io me wiil any pioblems. I' ll also
need io suivive paieni]ieaclei confeiences
and faculiy meeiings. If I ended up in ile
medical field, people-slills aie piobably
as impoiiani as ile degiee iiself. A docioi
can'i do anyiling ile paiieni doesn'i wani
if le oi sle cannoi gei ileii paiieni io iiusi
and iespeci ilem.
Muliiiasling is ley. I' ll be iinging
someone up and ile plone will iing and
ilen I lave io land bacl clange and, ol
yeal, male suie I don'i foigei io lisi off
ile infoimaiion on ile bacl of ile ieceipi.
Fiom ile momeni I wall in io ile momeni I
wall oui, ii's a consiani go, go, go enviion-
meni.
Teacling is also all aboui ile go, go, go.
Ii's geiiing iliougl a lesson and field-
ing quesiions io giving oui pop quizzes
and leeping an eye oui foi cellplones. Ii's
consianily being aleii and piepaied. Law
is also aboui ile go, go, go. Ii's ieseaicl-
ing cases io male poinis and ii's defending
clienis againsi ile claige beyond a ieason-
able doubi. And, someiimes ii's even jug-
gling iwo cases ai once.
Any caieei could be impioved fiom ile
smaiis acquiied in woiling in ieiail. Ii's
lile ile pie-pie-iiaining and ii's only
geiiing you ieady foi ile ieal woild.
Ii is ilai iime of yeai again. As ile weailei
geis coldei, ii can ieally male one wondei: Wlai
is so bad aboui global waiming? Especially foi
Micligan, ile effecis of climaie clange may noi
all be negaiive. Tleie is some definiie upside io
iising iempeiaiuies and sea levels.
People lave been f locling io ile Sunbeli,
ile waim souilein siaies siieicling iouglly
fiom Califoinia io Souil Caiolina, foi
decades. Accoiding io piojeciions by ile
Inieigoveinmenial Panel on Climaie Clange
(IPCC), Eaiil's aveiage iempeiaiuie is looling
ai a piobable inciease fiom iwo io ii. degiees
Falienleii by ile end of ilis ceniuiy. Tlis
inciease is lilely io be double ile inciease duiing
ile :o
il
ceniuiy. A ley noie is ilai winieis will
waim moie ilan summeis.
Tlis is good news foi us Micligandeis. No moie
long fiigid winieis bui incieased iempeiaiuies
will lave oilei posiiive effecis foi oui siaie. "As
a iesuli of ilese clanges, by :oo summeis in
Micligan may feel moie lile cuiieni-day Olio.
By :oq, summeis will iesemble ilai of noiil-
ein Ailansas wiil winieis ilai feel lile Olio,"
accoiding io ile Union of Conceined Scieniisis
(UCS).
If iempeiaiuie piojeciions aie accuiaie, even
ile modeiaie ones, people may be led io leave
ile Sunbeli foi ile coolei iempeiaiuies of ile
noiilein siaies. Tlai will biing moie popula-
iion, companies and jobs. Tleie could also be an
inciease in iouiism as people seel io escape ile
biuially loi summeis of ile balmy souil. Wlai
beiiei escape ilan ile mild Micligan weailei
and waimei Gieai Lales?
Tle possible economic benefiis would also
affeci ile couniiy as a wlole. Tle fabled
Noiilwesi Passage, a iiade iouie iliougl
Canada's Aiciic Aiclipelago and ile Aiciic
Ocean, opened fully in :ooy, ile fiisi iime Aiciic
sea ice las ieceded enougl on iecoid.
"We'ie piobably o yeais alead of scledule
in ieims of ile loss of ile Aiciic sea ice," said
Mail Seiieze, a senioi scieniisi ai ile Naiional
Snow and Ice Daia Ceniei (NSIDC), io Naiional
Geogiaplic. Tle Passage is siill seasonal as ile
amouni of sea ice incieases in ile winiei and
commeicial slipping is noi yei possible. Wiil ile
piojecied incieases in iempeiaiuies, lowevei,
ile Noiilwesi Passage may become siable
enougl io become a viable alieinaiive io ile
Suez and Panama Canals. Even a seasonally open
Noiilwesi Passage would allow commeicial slip-
ping io go quiclly fiom Asia io Euiope oi even
fiom noiileasi ciiies io noiilwesiein ones.
Tleie is a downside. Micligan may also become
diiei ilan in ile pasi and could lave a sliglily
sloiiei giowing season, bui is ilai ieally iei-
iible? Wiil all ile benefiis io climaie clange,
one musi lool caiefully ai wlai exacily ile oilei
downsides aie. A landful of sli iesoiis go oui
of business and Miami sinls undei ile Ailaniic.
Is ileie ieally anyiling so bad aboui ilai? Lile
mosi anyiling, climaie clange las iis biigli side.
Maybe we slould focus moie on ile benefiis ilan
woiiying aboui any possible pioblems.

Wly aie we always iold io go
io college and eniicl ouiselves
wiil ile lnowledge given io us
by some siiange "genius?" Wly
aie we iold ilai in oidei foi us io
succeed in life, we musi ieceive
liglei leaining? Ii is because iley
wani us io giow ugly, old and full
of silly inielligence ilai won'i gei
us faiilei ilan a livelilood.
Inielligence is ile iooi of all
evil, afiei all. Do you iemembei
wlen we weie small and naive,
low we weie iold we weie beau-
iiful, piecious and adoiable? I
ceiiainly do. Wlen we giow up
and begin oui educaiion we aie no
longei iold ilose ilings. Insiead
we aie pusled io gei ligl mails
in all of oui subjecis in sclool.
Tle ieacleis and paienis lave
seen inielligence begin io seep
inio oui faces, so we aie pusled io
leep leaining and giow moie
unaiiiaciive. Ii is absoluiely
dieadfully boiing. Maybe if we
didn'i educaie ouiselves, we
could siay beauiiful, adoiable
and piecious.
Foigei college and bools
and degiees. Insiead, opi foi
a life fiee of all sucl nonsense
and io live wiil noiling in
youi lead bui ilouglis of "My,
low ile sly lools blue ioday."
Remain beauiiful. By ieceiv-
ing any foim of inielligence, I
gain ugly wiinlles, loiiid slin
fiom siiess, and my laii giows
dull and limp. Wlen I lool no
fuiilei inio a bool ilan ile
coloiful piciuies on ile covei,
I iemain simple, glowing and
f lawless. Siiiing down io an
aiiilmeiic pioblem and iiying
io solve wlai seems impossible
only leads io woiiy and ugly lines
upon a beauiiful face.
Tale, foi example, Albeii
Einsiein, aiguably one of ile
gieaiesi minds of ile :o
il
ceniuiy.
He was an absoluie cloie io lool
ai and see wlai le gained fiom lis
lifeiime. He aclieved ile minus-
cule goal of ievoluiionizing ile
woild of plysics and science, and
clanged ile way ile woild views
iime and maiiei. Suie, le became
a legend bui ai ile cosi of lis
beauiy. Bel! Wlo would wani any
of ilai?
We slould lool, insiead, io ile
iimeless beauiy of Megan Fox.
Sle las siunning, ice blue eyes
ilai see noiling moie ilan wlai
is in fioni of lei face. Hei laii is
iicl wiil coloi and iliclness, and
sle seems io lnow noiling ilai
is going in ile woild aiound lei.
Sle will noi be iemembeied foi
anyiling (oilei ilan alienaiing
a diiecioi by compaiing lim io
Hiilei) aside fiom being beauii-
ful. Railei ilan leaining plysics
and being publisled in liiile-iead
scieniific jouinals, Fox is spiead
acioss ile pages of vaiious men's
magazines. Wlai moie is ileie io
aspiie io?
So, I issue cauiion io my ieadeis:
If you wisl io gain inielligence
ilai will lead you down a pail
of enliglienmeni and giowil,
ii comes wiil a cosi - one's own
beauiy. Ii is a f leeiing iling afiei
all, and one musi do eveiyiling
possible io pieseive ii.
Tle enduiing novel "Tle
Piciuie of Doiian Giay," by Oscai
Wilde, comes io mind. Loid
Heniy said, "Bui beauiy, ieal
beauiy, ends wleie an inielleciual
expiession begins. Inielleci is
in iiself a mode of exaggeiaiion,
and desiioys ile laimony of any

io ilinl, one becomes all nose, oi
all foielead oi someiling loiiid.
Lool ai ile successful men in any

peifecily lideous iley aie!"
Remembei, deai fiiends, wlile
you sii and pondei ile piofound
quesiions of youi piofessois and
educaiois, low absoluiely lideous
you lool. So cloose beauiy. Foigei
aboui ile bools, degiees, and

savoi ile aiieniion. Also, leain
low io say Do you wani fiies wiil

In Micligan ileie aie iwo biidges ilai go io Canada: ile
Blue Waiei Biidge in Poii Huion and ile Ambassadoi Biidge
in Deiioii, wlicl is ile main supply line io many companies
on boil sides of ile iivei. Boil couniiies wani io add anoilei
biidge foi seveial ieasons: if ileie is an aiiacl on ile biidge oi
some iype of a pioblem and ile biidge las io close and ilen
ileie would be billions of dollais and lois of iime losi. A
second span would also cui down on ile iiac on one biidge,
maling iiavel acioss ile boidei easiei.
Eveiy day, ovei a billion dollais in goods ciosses ile Ambas-
sadoi Biidge. Wlen leavy iiac clogs up ile boideis, ii cosis
companies sucl as Foid, Cliyslei and Geneial Moiois iime
and money. Tlese companies slip pioducis ovei ile biidge
and use a sysiem called jusi-in-iime deliveiy wlicl allows

iemain ai ile vendoi uniil iley aie iunning low on paiis
needed. If ileie is leavy iiac on ile biidge, ii could iun ile
plani oui of paiis and slui down ile facioiy. Lasi yeai, delays
ai ile biidge added an esiimaied sSoo io ile cosi of eveiy new
velicle sold in ile U.S. and Canada. Tlis was due io auiomo-
iive companies iiying io covei cosis of down iime.
Tle pioposed biidge, ilai las been iiying io pass iliougl
ile Senaie since :ooq, would cosi appioximaiely s:.6 billion
foi ile eniiie piojeci. Tlese cosis would be splii beiween ile
U.S. and Canada. Canada las commiiied io puiiing up so
million as a loan io Micligan io be iepaid iliougl fuiuie ioll
ievenue. Ii would lelp cui down on iiavel iime acioss ile
boidei. Wiil U.S. iiade wiil Canada going up 6% fiom
:ooq-:oio ileie is a defniie inciease in iiac. Many Republi-
cans lave been iiying foi a gieen ligli on ile piojeci, includ-
ing Goveinoi Ricl Snydei, bui some Senaiois lave been
sialling, iepoiiing ilai wiil iiac down some o%, iley
cannoi jusiify ile building of iwo biidges. Howevei wiil
incieased iiac piojeciions foi ile nexi o yeais, up y% foi
cais and i:S% foi iiucls, ii would oveiload ile capaciiy of jusi
one biidge.
Tle cuiieni ownei of ile Ambassadoi Biidge las been
campaigning againsi building a new, publicly-owned biidge
insiead of a piivaiely-owned one lile lis. Billionaiie Manuel
Moioun bougli ile Ambassadoi Biidge o yeais ago. Today,
ile biidge males iouglly s6o million annually in ioll ievenue.
Moioun las pioposed io build a new biidge alongside ile
exisiing span, wiil iwo moie lanes and use ile Ambassadoi
Biidge as a bacl-up. Bui Canada does noi wani ilai due io
cuiieni iiac pioblems ai ile locaiion of ile boidei siaiions.
If passed, ile biidge siie would be in Deliay, an indusiiial and
iesideniial aiea. Ii was once a nice communiiy bui now is
bliglied wiil abandoned, giaii-iiddled buildings ilai would
come down io male ioom foi ile new biidge. If buili, ile
goveinmeni may use emineni domain, pei ile Fifil Amend-
meni of ile U.S. Consiiiuiion, io move people oui of ile aiea.
Opening up a new biidge in Deiioii is a good idea foi
Micligan. Ii would cieaie up io o,ooo jobs, liglien up ile
iiac acioss ile boidei, inciease iiavel beiween ile iwo
couniiies and lelp siop giidlocl ai ile boidei foi companies
dependeni on iiade, ileieby geiiing ileii paiis in iime and
possibly lowei ile cosis foi ile consumei.
Goveinoi Ricl Snydei feels ilai Micligan needs anoilei
biidge io Canada. He expecis ile siaie of Micligan, ile Uniied
Siaies goveinmeni and ile Canadian goveinmeni io pay foi
ilis s(.: billion biidge. Tle Ambassadoi Biidge is piivaiely
owned by Manuel Moioun and ii is S:-yeais old. Tle new
biidge would be a few miles away fiom ile exisiing biidge,
using up moie land. Ii would iale beiween foui and fve yeais
io compleie ilis biidge. Many people aie opposed io iis
consiiuciion and feel ilai ile money slould be used io fx
ioads in Micligan insiead.
Tle main ieason foi opposiiion is ile cosi. Tle U.S. is
alieady in debi. Tle people of Micligan slould noi lave io pay
liglei iaxes io build ilis biidge wlen ileie is an alieinaiive.
Moioun las biougli up ile idea of building anoilei biidge,
alongside ile exisiing Ambassadoi Biidge, and las oeied io
pay up io soo million foi ii.
Tlis idea would save land because ile pioposed siie is
alieady owned by Moioun wlicl means ilai ile Siaie would
noi need io use iis emineni domain powei io iale people's
louses. Emineni domain means ilai ile goveinmeni las ile
consiiiuiional iigli io iale youi piopeiiy foi a public puipose.
Tle goveinmeni las io pay foi ii, bui ileii defniiion of faii is
ofien dieieni ilan ile ownei's.
Tle goveinmeni does a loiiible job ai maling suie ioads
aie safe, wly would a new biidge be any dieieni? Micligan
ioads aie full of poiloles and ile oveipasses lave paiis ilai aie
ciumbling. Tle idea of ile goveinmeni being in claige of ile
upleep of ilis new biidge is fiigliening. Ii will end up lile all
of ile neglecied ioads of Micligan. Ii will become unsafe and
useless.
Some people wlo suppoii building ile new Deiioii-
Windsoi Biidge lile ile idea ilai ii would cieaie many new
jobs. Tle pioblem is ilai mosi of ile jobs would be consiiuc-
iion jobs wlicl mosi people aie noi qualifed foi. Tle people
wlo could do ilese jobs would also fnd woil iepaiiing ile
Ambassadoi Biidge if ilai weie ile iouie ialen. Tley could
also fnd woil building anoilei piivaiely owned biidge lile
Moioun las oeied.
Oveiall, ilis pioposed new biidge is a ieiiible idea. Ii would
luii, noi lelp, ile people of Micligan. Ii would involve ile
goveinmeni ialing land fiom iis owneis foi mucl less ilan
iley deseive, ile cosi foi consiiuciion and mainienance is
asiionomical, and ile people of Micligan would be siucl
paying foi a laige poiiion of ii iliougl oui iax dollais. Tle
goveinmeni does noi mainiain oui ioads, we cannoi expeci
ilem io leep a biidge of ilis size and impoiiance up-io-daie
and safe.
Moioun las oeied io build anoilei biidge; ile govein-
meni slould iale lim up on ilai oei. Micligan is siiuggling,
don'i male ilings laidei foi us by iaising oui iaxes foi a biidge

Tle slippeiy slope is a favoiiie fallacy of ile doomsayei. Ii goes
lile ilis: "If eveni A lappens, ilen eveni B will suiely follow." Tle
slippeiy slope is a logical fallacy because ii assumes a poieniial
consequence of a decision ilai can'i be pioven. Foi example, a
common aigumeni againsi diug legalizaiion is, "If we legalize
diugs, ilen eveiyone will siaii using ilem!" Tle aigumeni assumes
a consequence ilai is noi defniie, and cannoi be confimed.
Of couise, ile beauiy of ile slippeiy slope is ilai ii can always slip
boil ways. "If we male diugs illegal because iley'ie poieniially
laimful, we'll lave io male eveiyiling poieniially laimful illegal.
Soon we won'i lave cais, lammeis oi iooilpicls!"
Seiiing up a siiaw man involves aiiacling an exaggeiaied oi
disioiied veision of someone's posiiion. Poliiical ads iend io be
clocl full of ilem. "Senaioi }aclie wanis io inciease ile lealilcaie
budgei, wleieas Senaioi Maclie wanis io iale medicaiion away
fiom ile eldeily." Ii's veiy unlilely ilai Senaioi Maclie aciually
wanis io snaicl ile pain pills oui of youi giandmoilei's land. Ii's a
cleap way io iuin youi opponeni inio an easy-io-slooi-down iaigei.
Of couise, aiiacling an exaggeiaied posiiion in ilis mannei is lile
ciiiicizing a caiicaiuie as if ii was a ploiogiapl. Ii's noi ile way io
male a convincing aigumeni.
Tle :oi: piesideniial eleciions aie coming up soon. How many
siiaw men can you spoi?
Humans aie quicl io male assumpiions and jump io conclu-
sions. "Posi loc eigo piopiei loc" means "Afiei ilis, ileiefoie,
because of ilis." Ii's a common logical fallacy ilai boils down io
"Eveni A lappened befoie eveni B, ileiefoie eveni A caused eveni
B." An example migli be, "}oln's compuiei siopped woiling. He lii
ile compuiei. Ii siaiied woiling again. Tleiefoie, }oln is ile Fonz."
Tle pioblem is, iwo evenis lappening in sequence pioves noiling,
oilei ilan ilai ile evenis lappened in sequence. Hence ile pliase,
"coiielaiion does noi imply causaiion."
Posi loc can also be iefeiied io as ile "supeisiiiion fallacy," as ii
is ile eiioi ilai spawns mosi supeisiiiious beliefs. "Eveiy iime I've
woin my ied boxei sloiis, Tle Red Wings lave won. Tleiefoie, ile
Red Wings don'i win unless I weai my ied boxei sloiis." Tle logic
gap ileie is pieiiy easy io spoi. Unless you can diaw a diieci causal
linl beiween a locley ieam and youi undeipanis, clances aie ile
iwo evenis aie unielaied. Hence ile oilei pliase, "spoiis win does
noi imply magic undeiweai."
Tleie once was a iime wlen aigumeni consisied of a civil
exclange of opinions, using aicane concepis lile ilougli and logic.
Unfoiiunaiely, in ioday's woild, an aigumeni usually consisis of:
"I'm veiy loud!"
"Ol yeal? Well I'm even loudei!"
In an eoii io male a ieiuin io ile golden days of aigumeni, we
pieseni a ciasl couise in logical fallacies. Heie aie iliee common
lapses in ieason ilai you slould be awaie of.

Tle slippeiy slope is a favoiiie fallacy of ile doomsayei. Ii goes
lile ilis: "If eveni A lappens, ilen eveni B will suiely follow." Tle
slippeiy slope is a logical fallacy because ii assumes a poieniial
consequence of a decision ilai can'i be pioven. Foi example, a
common aigumeni againsi diug legalizaiion is, "If we legalize
diugs, ilen eveiyone will siaii using ilem!" Tle aigumeni assumes
a consequence ilai is noi defniie, and cannoi be confimed.
Of couise, ile beauiy of ile slippeiy slope is ilai ii can always slip
boil ways. "If we male diugs illegal because iley'ie poieniially
laimful, we'll lave io male eveiyiling poieniially laimful illegal.
Soon we won'i lave cais, lammeis oi iooilpicls!"
Seiiing up a siiaw man involves aiiacling an exaggeiaied oi
disioiied veision of someone's posiiion. Poliiical ads iend io be
clocl full of ilem. "Senaioi }aclie wanis io inciease ile lealilcaie
budgei, wleieas Senaioi Maclie wanis io iale medicaiion away
fiom ile eldeily." Ii's veiy unlilely ilai Senaioi Maclie aciually
wanis io snaicl ile pain pills oui of youi giandmoilei's land. Ii's a
cleap way io iuin youi opponeni inio an easy-io-slooi-down iaigei.
Of couise, aiiacling an exaggeiaied posiiion in ilis mannei is lile
ciiiicizing a caiicaiuie as if ii was a ploiogiapl. Ii's noi ile way io
male a convincing aigumeni.
Tle :oi: piesideniial eleciions aie coming up soon. How many
siiaw men can you spoi?
Humans aie quicl io male assumpiions and jump io conclu-
sions. "Posi loc eigo piopiei loc" means "Afiei ilis, ileiefoie,
because of ilis." Ii's a common logical fallacy ilai boils down io
"Eveni A lappened befoie eveni B, ileiefoie eveni A caused eveni
B." An example migli be, "}oln's compuiei siopped woiling. He lii
ile compuiei. Ii siaiied woiling again. Tleiefoie, }oln is ile Fonz."
Tle pioblem is, iwo evenis lappening in sequence pioves noiling,
oilei ilan ilai ile evenis lappened in sequence. Hence ile pliase,
"coiielaiion does noi imply causaiion."
Posi loc can also be iefeiied io as ile "supeisiiiion fallacy," as ii
is ile eiioi ilai spawns mosi supeisiiiious beliefs. "Eveiy iime I've
woin my ied boxei sloiis, Tle Red Wings lave won. Tleiefoie, ile
Red Wings don'i win unless I weai my ied boxei sloiis." Tle logic
gap ileie is pieiiy easy io spoi. Unless you can diaw a diieci causal
linl beiween a locley ieam and youi undeipanis, clances aie ile
iwo evenis aie unielaied. Hence ile oilei pliase, "spoiis win does
noi imply magic undeiweai."
Tleie once was a iime wlen aigumeni consisied of a civil
exclange of opinions, using aicane concepis lile ilougli and logic.
Unfoiiunaiely, in ioday's woild, an aigumeni usually consisis of:
"I'm veiy loud!"
"Ol yeal? Well I'm even loudei!"
In an eoii io male a ieiuin io ile golden days of aigumeni, we
pieseni a ciasl couise in logical fallacies. Heie aie iliee common
lapses in ieason ilai you slould be awaie of.

Stick with the books 1he titanic trio return in all new moie
Tle new iiend in Hollywood
is ialing an old liieiaiuie classic
and iuining ii inio a movie,
adding some of ilai famous
Hollywood flavoi. Sadly, ii does
noi always woil. Tlis yeai's
example is a sieampunl adapia-
iion of ile classic sioiy, "Tle
Tliee Musleieeis." Wiiiien by
Alexandei Dumas in iS((, ii's a
supeiioi adveniuie sioiy wiil
spies, swoid figliing, leioes,
damsels, villains and suspense.
Ii iales place in Paiis ciica i6:
wleie ile ciiy is splii beiween
iwo leadeis: ile evil Caidinal
Riclelieu and ile good King
Louis XIII. Tle Musleieeis aie
allies io ile good King Louis,
as ile ioyal guaids. To many
guaids ii is a job, bui io one,
D'Aiiagnan, ii is lis dieam. He
iiavels io Paiis on a quesi io
join ile Musleieeis. Noi only
does le join, bui geis ile piivi-
lege io be iiained by ile besi:
Ailos, Poiilos and Aiamis.
D'Aiiagnan quiclly discoveis
a conspiiacy ilai foices ile
migliy adveniuieis io iiavel
cioss couniiy foi a jeweliy luni
io defend ile beloved queen's
lonoi.
"Tle Tliee Musleieeis" is
Alexandei Dumas' eailiesi
woil and many considei ii
among lis besi alongside
"Tle Couni of Monie
Ciisio"and "Tle
Man in ile Iion
Masl." Ii's a
gieai adveniuie sioiy ilai las
eveiyiling fiom gieai swoid
figlis io gieai villains. Tle
bool is a piime example of
lisioiical ficiion. Ii is aciually
based fiom ile memoiis of
Comie De La Feie. Tle majoiiiy
of ile claiacieis weie aciu-
ally ieal people lile Caidinal
Riclelieu and King Louis XIII.
Dumas painis a iomaniic
adveniuious piciuie foi ile
bool bui does noi iale away
any of ile main ploi.
"Tle Tliee Musleieeis" was
publisled siiangely, foi ii was
nevei iniended io be a novel,
bui as a seiies foi a newspapei.
Dumas wioie a new clapiei
foi eacl issue of ile papei. Tle
piinied clapieis would end in a
clifflangei, wleie ile damsel is
lidnapped oi leioes aie lefi in
a neai deail siiuaiion. Wlen ii
was publisled as a novel, eacl
clapiei ended in sucl suspense
ilai ile ieadei would noi be
able io pui ile bool down.
Tle sligli downside io ilis
classic novel is ile bool is
leavy wiil daied dialogue and
can seem veiy diawn oui and
complicaied. Tle swoid figli
scenes aie wiiiien ioo sloii.
Do noi cloose io iead ile new
Riclaid Peveai iianslaiion.
He iiied io modeinize ii and
in iuin desiioyed Dumas' iicl
sioiy and poeiic language.
Insiead go foi ile William
Baiiow iianslaiion. Ii is moie
faiilful io Dumas' oiiginal iale
lowevei many of ile sexual
ilemes lave been weeded oui.
If you wani, leain Fiencl io
iead "Tle Tliee Musleieeis,"
because ileie is no beiiei
veision ilan ile oiiginal.
Tle bool is amazing, a sus-
penseful sioiy wiil aciion and
adveniuie and a dasl of lisioiy.
Tleie is no movie ilai can do ii
jusiice. }usi iead ile bool and
lool inio ile sequels.
Evei since ileii debui in Alexandie
Dumas' famed novel, ile Tliee
Musleieeis lave undeigone vaiious
ieboois and adapiaiions. Tlose ianging
fiom ile Hanna-Baibeia animaied
segmenis of ile "Banana Spliis" io ile
aniliopomoiplized "Dogianian and ile
Tliee Muslelounds." Tleie was also
ile iqq Disney movie siaiiing Kiefei
Suileiland and Clailie Sleen, feaiuiing
Biyan Adams' and Siing's "All foi Love."
Hollywood las once again ialen ilese
classic leioes inio an all new aciion
comedy.
Sei in iyil-ceniuiy Fiance, ile film
opens wiil ile slilled and deadly
Ailos (Maiilew MacFadyen), ile supei
siiong and quicl-iongued Poiilos (Ray
Sievenson), and ile agile and ieligious
Aiamis (Lule Evans). Tle iiio aie sieal-
ing bluepiinis ilai deiail low io build a
massive aiislip, wlicl could give Fiance
an advaniage ovei enemy naiions. Tleii
mission ends in failuie wlen iley aie
beiiayed by ileii paiinei and Ailo's
lovei, Milady de Winiei (Milla }ovovicl).
Sle diugs ilem and lands ile plans ovei
io ile Dule of Buclinglam (Oilando
Bloom), wlo doesn'i boilei io lide lis
joy ovei ileii lumiliaiion. One yeai laiei,
ile Musleieeis, disgiaced by ile boicled
mission, lave been foiced io disband, and
aie siill gieaily aslamed by ileii defeai.
Tlis paiiiculaily disappoinis D'Aiiagnan
(Logan Leiman), a young man fiom
ile couniiy wlo lad loped io
join ile Musleieeis. Bui boil
D'Aiiagnan's dieams and
a clance foi ile iiio io
iedeem ilemselves may
come soonei ilan
iley ilinl wlen
iley uncovei a
ploi by Milady
and lei boss,
ile coiiupi
Caidinal
Riclelieu
(Cliisiopl
Waliz). Tle plan is io foice Fiance inio
a wai wiil England by maling ii appeai
ilai Queen Anne (}uno Temple) is laving
an affaii wiil ile Dule. Seizing ile
oppoiiuniiy, ile Musleieeis sei foiil
io foil ile Caidinal's plan and pieveni a
wai, figliing off ile Caidinal's lenclmen
along ile way.
Tle film is veiy inieiesiing, due laigely
io iis unique iale on ile classic adveniuie
sioiy. Unlile ile oiiginal sioiy, ileie is
moie of a comedic flaii and a gieai deal
of sieampunl-siyled ieclnology incoi-
poiaied inio ile sioiy, wlicl adds io ile
pulse-pounding aciion. Ii's an amazing
new iale on ile novel, wiil a few moie
clanges leie and ileie. Tle visuals aie
wondeiful, alilougl ile -D doesn'i lelp.
Ii may woil foi some films, bui "Tle
Tliee Musleieeis" isn'i one of ilem.
Oilei ilan ile pesly -D, ilis is a

loads of lumoi ilai'll leep you waniing

Audio, Video, Oisco"
Genre. Electro House
Foi mosi of ile lasi decade, ii seemed
lile Dafi Punl would lold a monopoly
on Fiencl-pioduced disco-louse. Tlen,
fiom ile depils of Paiis spiung ile
eleciionic duo }usiice. Tleii :ooy debui,
"Cioss," iool eveiyone by suipiise, wiil
iis mangled beais, slaiply-cui samples
and deliciously disioiied bass lines. Foui
yeais laiei, iley launcled ileii liglly-
aniicipaied soplomoie ielease, "Audio,
Video, Disco."
}usiice desciibed "AVD" as a "dayiime
album," io complimeni ile dailei ione of
"Cioss." Tle 'yos dance club influence is
mucl moie pionounced on "AVD." Tle
album opens wiil "Hoisepowei," a disco
ioclei compleie wiil scieaming guiiais and
oiclesiial accompanimeni. Laiei on, a fluie
solo appeais oui of nowleie on ile iiacl
"On'n'On" . wlen's ile lasi iime you leaid
one of ilose ouiside of a }eilio Tull iecoid?
Unfoiiunaiely, foi all iis giandeui,
"AVD" is a buzzsaw wiil a bluni blade
and no eleciiic cuiieni. Tle eneigeiic
pulse ilai diove "Cioss" is dulled and
dissipaied on ilis album. Tle music is
ai iis besi wlen }usiice foigoes ile acidic
giooves aliogeilei and focuses on build-
ing waves of biigli, pulsaiing melody.
Tle iiile iiacl males good use of ilis
ieclnique, wiil a soaiing vocal cloius
ilai is simple bui wondeifully infeciious.
Ai iis woisi, ile album feels lile "}usiice
liie" - lowei in caloiies bui lacling flavoi.
Tle iiacl "Canon" leailens bacl io
ile ciuncling iiffs of "Cioss," bui nevei
develops inio anyiling speciaculai. Ai ile
lowesi end of ile speciium, "Biianvision"
iales so long io gei ievved up ilai ii feels
lile a song made of y peiceni iniio. And
even wlen ile ciescendo liis, ii siill feels
limp and lifeless.
Tlis "dayiime" album slows wly
ile besi paiiies lappen ai nigli. Wlile
"Cioss" was laid and laisl, "AVD" is
ligli and melodic, bui ii comes ai ile
expense of ile edge ilai made "Cioss"
sucl an excepiional album. Tle spealei-
ciippling disioiiion ilai made iiacls lile
"Tle Waieis of Nazaieil" ciawl inio youi
veins and spile youi blood wiil adiena-
line is all bui abseni.
As a sequel io an album ilai iaised
eyebiows and expeciaiions, "Audio,
Video, Disco" simply doesn'i delivei. Ii's
a palaiable ielease foi suie, and a decade
ago ii may lave made some waves.
Unfoiiunaiely, in :oii, ii's jusi olay.
The Bottom Line:
"Audio, Video, Disco" lacls ile ievolu-
iion and iaw eneigy ilai made "Cioss" so
capiivaiing. Ii's noi bad, bui ii's fai fiom a
genie classic.

Kelly Clailson came busiing oui

A fiisi lisien io ilis album leaves

including Gieg Kuisiin, Sieve }oidan
and Howaid Benson, wlo iool ileii
iime geiiing io lnow lei.
Tle songs build off one anoilei
and ile ileme fiom ile iiile slows
you jusi low mucl siiongei sle
ieally is. Hei voice, a liiile deepei and
a bii iaspiei, leaves visions of P!nl
in ile bacl of one's mind. Seveial
of ile songs aie anilems sung foi

Wlai iiuly males ilis album is ile

You can ieally leai ile emoiion in

"You lnow ile bed feels waimei]

Maya Azucena
Cry Love"
Genre. Neo soul
"Ciy Love" is slelved in ile neo
soul seciion, bui ile album cannoi be
limiied so simply. Giammy winnei Maya
Azucena bends genies in ilis piogies-
sive compilaiion, including sounds of
smooil jazz, funly blues, island beais
and elemenis of lip lop. A cognizani
and deeply passionaie lyiicisi, Azucena
coveis lope, suivival, jusiice and love
- boil losi and found. "Ciy Love" las
been iefeiied io ovei and ovei again as
lei ideal siaiemeni as an aiiisi. Ii is as if
Azucena las gaileied all of ile passions
in lei leaii and lei ilem poui fiom lei
lips inio a beauiiful mosaic of sound.
Wlile ile iiile iiacl is peifecily poised
io licl off ile album wiil a call io social
aciion, io fully giasp ilis piojeci one
musi begin ai ile end. Tle final iiacl
on ilis album is an exquisiie collaboia-
iion wiil Cliis Rob coveiing Donnie
Hailaway's "Liiile Gleiio Boy." Tlis
Hailaway song seives as ile veiy iooi of
Azucena's vision. Wlile ii may noi lave

ile clild-lile faiil ilai lumaniiy clings
io, as sle sings "Eveiyiling is gonna gei

boil waimil and weiglilessness io ilis

Tle album is laden wiil coniiasi.
Following ile easy acousiic guiiai and
simple flowing ilyilm of "Ciy Love,"
"Sline" uiilizes ile depil of Azucena's
vocal iegisiei and ile gospel sounds
of oigan, bass and biass io consiiuci a
spiiiiual ode io ile inieinal conflici of

Caiibbean peicussive siyling meeis ile

ilai ii neaily iales piecedence ovei ile
message of iediscoveiy.
Azucena seems io clannel lei innei

nisceni of India Aiie's vibe. Peilaps ile
biggesi suipiise is in "Live On," wiil iis Lizz
Wiigli-inspiied blend of foll and soul.
The Bottom Line:
If you aie a lovei of neo soul, "Ciy

youi colleciion. Tle album is a leady
cocliail of emoiion decanied diiecily
fiom ile spiiii of ile aiiisi.

ieleniless and fuiiously enieiiaining
expeiience . piovided you leave youi

Howevei, you can only caiiy one iiem

Maling ile eniiie game iandomly-

Ii's as if ile developeis of "Supei

Wlile "SMB" was all aboui piecision,

Wlen you log onio a compuiei ai sclool, woil, oi any

if someone is moniioiing youi inieinei usage. Howevei,
uiilizing inieinei seivice iliougl any company allows
foi ile possibiliiy of inieinei moniioiing.
Scloolciafi College, as well as many oilei colleges
and univeisiiies acioss ile couniiy, lave implemenied
inieinei moniioiing as paii of ileii compuiei policies.
EDUCAUSE, a "nonpiofii associaiion wlose mission
is io advance liglei educaiion by piomoiing ile iniel-
ligeni use of infoimaiion ieclnology," siaies on ileii
websiie ilai "Since ile U.S. law does noi iegulaie
conieni on ile |Inieineij excepi iliougl oilei laws
sucl as clild poinogiaply, univeisiiies musi decide if
iley aie going io iegulaie wlai siudenis and faculiy
can lool ai." EDUCAUSE ieseaicled compuiei usage
polices foi yi siaie univeisiiies and found ilai :S of
ile sclools ieseaicled, "ieseive ile iigli io moniioi
accounis and usage if ileie is evidence of illegal aciiv-
iiy oi uneilical use." Alilougl mosi siudeni inieinei
usage is only being moniioied foi illegal oi inappiopii-
aie aciiviiy, eveiyiling ile siudeni does online using
ile college neiwoil can be accessed. Tle majoiiiy of
univeisiiies and colleges, including Scloolciafi, lave
ileii compuiei policies posied online.
Inieinei moniioiing is noi some soii of big
bioilei conspiiacy. Ii is simply a faci of life in ilis
day and age. In ile ieal woiling woild, in any job
ilai iequiies compuiei usage, clances aie ilai all
aciiviiy will be moniioied. Tlis is simply because
ile company pioviding ile web usage las ileii
own inieiesi io lool oui foi and if illegal aciiviiy is
being conducied iliougl ileii inieinei, iley lave a
vesied inieiesi in seeing ii siopped.
Alilougl some siudenis may disagiee wiil ile
faci ilai iley aie being moniioied wlile using ile
inieinei on campus, allowing colleges ile oppoiiu-
niiy io moniioi siudeni inieinei aciiviiy can lave

way io caicl aciual ciiminals ilai bieal ile law
and uiilize ile inieinei foi iepelleni aciiviiies, lile
clild poinogiaply. }onailan Wong, a : yeai old
siudeni ai ile Univeisiiy of Yoil, was aiiesied foi
downloading clild poinogiaply on lis compuiei.
Siudenis ai ile Univeisiiy became suspicious aboui
ceiiain files on ile campus' inieinal neiwoil. Tley
aleiied campus auiloiiiies, wlo uliimaiely iiaced
ile files io Wong. Wlen uiilizing a campus iniei-
nei neiwoil, ile campus may even lave access io
files saved on youi peisonal compuiei, as seen in
}onailan Wong's case.
Tleie can also be seveie consequences foi ilose
ilai do noi follow ile iules oi uiilize ile inieinei foi
illegal aciiviiy. Scloolciafi's compuiei usage policy
siaies "Penaliies foi violaiion of ilis policy will vaiy
depending on ile specific violaiion and ile degiee of
violaiion. Penaliies include iepiimands iliougl iei-
minaiion foi employees, wiil ile poieniial foi pios-
ecuiion foi eiilei siudeni oi employee, if violaiions
of law aie involved." Fuiileimoie, "Tle goveinmeni
is incieasingly looling io Inieinei seivice piovideis,
including colleges and univeisiiies, as a souice of
communicaiions daia io aid in ile invesiigaiion and
piosecuiion of illegal belavioi."
Scloolciafi siudenis lave mixed emoiions on
ile iopic of inieinei moniioiing. "I ilinl ii's an
invasion of my piivacy and ii's lind of cieepy," said
Dominique McClasiei, a fieslman. In coniiasi,
Cliffoid Fosiei, also a fieslman ai ile College,
said, "If you'ie noi doing anyiling wiong, ilen you

Ii's a good idea foi all siudenis io view ile com-

Google launched an Android-based Music Store on
November 16. The store, part oI Google Music, will be inte-
grated with Android Market and the social networking site
Google. This will allow Android devices to buy, store and
stream MP3s. The music store has a 13 million song library
through EMI, Sony Music Entertainment, Universal and 23
independent labels. A notable exception is Warner Music
Group, whose artists include Led Zeppelin and Gym Class
Heroes.
The new Music Store has the power to become a serious
rival to iTunes. Apple iOS smartphones and tablets make up
only 15 percent oI the market, while Android devices make
up over halI according to a study by Gartner, a music indus-
try research Iirm. The songs will also be priced competi-
tively enough to take on iTunes, ranging between 69 cents
and $1.29. DiIIerent Iree tracks will be available daily.
There are also opportunities Ior smaller artists. Through
Google`s Artist Hub, musicians can add a page Ior $25 and
will be able to set their own prices. However, Google will
take 30 percent oI each sale.
The service will provide a compliment to Google Music
Beta, unveiled earlier this year, where users are able to
upload their music libraries so they can be used on multiple
devices. Users oI Google will be able to listen to a Iull song
purchased by their Iriends Ior Iree.Recommendations Irom
Iriends are the single most important way that people dis-
cover music and we think that this Ieature has the potential to
really transIorm purchasing behavior, said Zahavah Levine,
Google`s director oI content partnerships Ior Android, to
Reuters at the launch event.
There may not be a signiIicant uptake in revenue Irom
the new store, but it is important Ior Google to get a more
complete media experience Ior Android. Although coming
in late to the music game, Google`s successes in its other
operations should make the new music store something that
Apple and Amazon should not take lightly.

Ii waims my veiy coie wlen I see siu-

moie wondeiful. Tle siudenis will
siand up and declaie iley lnow some-
iling is wiong and unjusi. Eveiyone
musi lisien and leed ileii woids of
infiniie wisdom.
Foi insiance all of ile people ilai
ially in Kalamazoo, Ann Aiboi and

aie sianding up foi ile qq% againsi ile

Tlese men lave invenied a pioduci
oi seivice ilai was in demand by

Insiead of landing oui ilese seivices
io eveiy Tom, Dicl and Haiiy ilai
walls down ile siieei, ilese gieedy
coipoiaiions only allow ilose wlo can

Foi ioo long now we lave been foiced

money fuels ile i% and ii siuffs ile

Don'i you laie ilai? How can iley
pull us, ile laidwoiling middle class,
off ile siieeis and demand we coniiib-
uie io ileii gioiesque banl accounis?
How did ile i% ilinl iley could gei

All of ilis laissez faiie nonsense

So wlen a siudeni siands up io

I iecenily lad ile pleasuie - and

In case you weie foiiunaie enougl io
dodge ilai paiiiculai bullei, leie's
a quicl synopsis. Diiecied by Duicl
waclaloon Tom Six, "Tle Human
Ceniipede" is a seiies of loiioi films
aboui siiicling people iogeilei, mouil
io anus, io foim a cieaiuie wiil a
single digesiive iiaci. Cue gag ieflex.
Tle fiisi film cenieied aiound a mad
suigeon and coniained ielaiively liiile

cal loiioi of ile scenaiio. By slaip
coniiasi - and also as a iesponse io
ilose wlo ilougli ile fiisi film wasn'i
neaily sicl enougl - ile second film
males a deceni case foi being one of
ile mosi disgusiing and disiuibing
moiion piciuies of all iime. Eveiyiling
good and deceni is biolen down in a
ioiieni of violence, lumiliaiion, goie
and gusling bodily fluids.
Of couise, ile film's iniense biuial-
iiy and ioial demolisling of any lind
of decency baiiiei caused a fuioi upon
ile film's ielease. In England ii was
iniiially banned by ile Biiiisl Boaid
of Film Classificaiion foi poieniially
posing a "ieal iisl" io moviegoeis.
Many lave ciied oui ilai ii is a movie
ilai ougli noi io lave been made. Even
ilougl I would noi lilely sii iliougl
ile film a second iime - willingly,
anyway - I leaiiily disagiee. I ilinl we
aie all beiiei off living in a woild wleie
luman ceniipedes ioam fiee.
Befoie I move on, lei me male
one iling ciysialline: "Tle Human
Ceniipede :: Full Sequence" is a loi-
iendous film. By eveiy siandaid
conceivable, ile movie is deiesiable.
Tle sciipi is iiipe and noi one line of
dialogue is convincingly deliveied.
Tle siilied speecl, blacl-and-wliie
cinemaiogiaply and sligli suiiealism
suggesi an aiiempi ai cieaiing some

Of couise Tom Six fails miseiably ai
even liniing ai David Lyncl's biil-
liance. Tlen ileie's ile sclizoplienic
juxiaposiiion beiween lypei-iealisiic
goie and ovei-ile-iop, Looney Tunes-
esque violence. All in all, ii is a film
designed io insuli ile inielligeni, boie
ile siupid, exaspeiaie ile sensible and
desiioy ile fiagile.
And yei, as siiange as ii may sound,
Tom Six and lis almosi obsessive

aie sysiemaiically unlileable iepieseni

Tleie's a wondeifully iwisied aiiisiic
puiiiy io Six's commiimeni io biing-
ing aboui feelings of disgusi in all wlo

aii is eliciiing an emoiional iesponse,

woise - an aiiisi. Lile ii oi noi, "Tle

Go to any college and you might stumble
across classes on Iilm, literary or art
appreciation. However, you would be hard
pressed to Iind a class titled 'comic appre-
ciation. Comic books (or 'sequential art
as 'The Spirit creator Will Eisner dubbed
them, have been gaining quite the cult Iol-
lowing over the past two decades. Comics,
however, have yet to really earn the respect
they deserve as a valid art Iorm. Some tend
to think oI them as brainless entertain-
ment, while others simply dismiss them as
immature. When you really look into all
the elements that go into a comic, you can
see that these biases and presumptions are
simply incorrect.
While the combination oI words and
pictures have been around Ior thousands
oI years (Egyptian hieroglyphics, Ior
example), comics as we know today didn`t
arrive in American until the early 1930s.
Back then, comics were mostly simple
stories about Iantastic science, noir-style
detectives and Iantasy adventures. They
were known as 'Iunny books, a title
that continues to hurt the medium to this
day. While there were exceptions, most
oI these stories, like all new art Iorms,
lacked the Iocus to establish them as cred-
ible.
However, in the early 1980s, comic
books saw a renaissance. Stories like Neil
Gaiman`s 'Sandman, and Frank Miller`s
'The Dark Knight Returns established
comics as a mature, intelligent Iorm oI
entertainment. They Ieatured stories oI
real people involved in strange and Ian-
tastic situations Irom traveling to Hell to
Iist-Iighting Superman.
People cite characters that can Ily,
who have super-strength, or muscular
men punching each other whilst Ialling
oII buildings as something Ior children.
In reality, very Iew comics today Iollow
those simple conventions and the ones
that do are comparable to Greek, Norse or
other such mythology. Batman, Superman
and Spiderman are the American myth
heroes.
When we cite comics as a cred-
ible medium, one oI the best places to
turn is Alan Moore and Dave Gibbon`s
seminal work, 'Watchmen. The book
is about Golden Age-style heroes exist-
ing in an alternate 1980s, where Nixon is
serving his IiIth term and World War 3 is
looming. (For the uneducated, the Golden
Age reIers to a period oI American
comics usually considered to be Irom
the 1930s to the late 40s in which comics
enjoyed a major surge in popularity.)
'Watchmen deals with these super-peo-
ple`s inspirations, their oppositions, public
image (many are viewed as 'perverts),
and ultimately the consequences oI their
very existence. Among other accolades,
the book appeared on Time magazine`s
100 best English books Irom 1923 to the
present. In 2008, Entertainment Weekly
placed it at #13 on its list oI the best 100
novels printed in the last 25 years (Neil
Gaiman`s 'Sandman also made it at
#46). EW went on to describe the books
as 'The greatest super-hero story ever
told and prooI that comics are capable oI
smart, emotionally resonant narratives
worthy oI the label literature.
One oI the greatest contributions that
comics oIIer to entertainment is the
Ireedom it gives writers. In his book,
'Writers on Comic Scriptwriting, Mark
Salisbury wrote, 'While the Hollywood
money men have turned movies into a
homogenized, mass-marketed concern,
comics are currently in their most cre-
ative, coursing with limitless, visionary
promise and a capacity Ior invention,
intelligence, action, humor and wit that`s
second to none. Unlike movies or televi-
sion, comics are not bound by budgets or
conventions. A writers` creativity is the
only bound by his or her imagination.
Comics combine literature and art into
one unique Iorm oI entertainment.
While comics might never reach the
widespread admiration that other art
Iorms have achieved, it`s worth noting
they deserve it. Comics are a cheap, easy
and eIIective way in which writers can
express any story they wish. I Iear that iI
people don`t give sequential art the rec-
ognition it deserves, they are, as comic
writer Mark Waid said in Salisbury`s
book, 'doomed, |and that| the print comic
book is hopelessly |lost|. And that would
be a very sad day.

Finally! It`s my turn to take over
the Campus LiIe Section. (Note:
This will be a very interesting and
inIorming article and all questions
will be answered at the end oI this
article. Thank you.)
Ah . the Iarm liIe, open ranges,
the Iresh air, the majestic horses and
the giant compost heaps. Usually
when someone talks about liIe on
the Iarm, they don`t say anything
about composting. So what exactly
is composting anyway? Simply put,
composting is the decomposition or
breaking down oI organic compounds
to make nutrients Ior plants.
'Students oIten remember that
decomposition is the breakdown oI
stuII,` said ProIessor Gray about the
process oI decomposition. 'This trip
allowed students to see how compost
can be used as a nutrient-rich medium
Ior plant growth on the Iarm.
II you are wondering why I`m on
a Iarm, it`s because the trip was a
service learning project to under-
stand the process oI decomposition
Ior a biology class. When the class
met up with Mr. Johnston, the owner
oI Johnston Farms, he started to tell
us about how the process oI com-
posting went. Johnston told us how
he started the composting business.
He started a couple oI decades ago
with his wiIe. The idea was started
when he had heard that people
wanted to Iind an area to put excess
amounts oI their garden reIuse. He
decided to take up the challenge and
gave those people the back oI his
Iarmland. When he drove the stu-
dents down to the compost mounds
at the back oI his Iarm, we were
shocked by their magnitude. Some
were as big as tractors.
I expected the compost would
be smelly and dirty. Surprisingly,
it`s actually odorless and Ieels like
Iresh topsoil when you hold it. It
usually takes six months Ior all oI
the bacteria to die in the compost
beIore it can be used. The issue
with compost, that took me two
hours to Iind out Irom picking it
up, was that people put plastic and
other non-biodegradables in the
compost bags, so when the trash
goes into the shredding machine
along with garden reIuse, the trash
becomes harder to Iind. In the piles
that I worked on, there were shoes,
bottles, car parts and cables.
Why would I go out to a Iarm a
good while out oI Livonia, and pick
out bottles Irom a decomposing
heap? Because people need to know
that just throwing everything out
with the compost bag is not a good
thing. A majority oI the things that I
Iound did not decompose, which can
cause problems Ior the environment.
It takes plastic decades to decom-
pose because it`s made oI polyeth-
ylene terephthalate which comes
Irom petroleum. Plastic bottles
take thousands oI years to break
down. StyroIoam can last almost
indeIinitely compared to newspapers
which only take about Iour weeks to
break down.
So it`s great that I learned some-
thing about composting but what can
you get out oI this? Now you know
what happens when you go gardening
or planting. II you throw everyday
items away with the leaves, it just
creates more work Ior someone else.
So please, throw your trash some-
where besides your yard waste pile.

Georgia Anne Mu|drow
Vweto"
Genre: Experimental Funk
Georgia Anne Muldrow is best known
Ior her inventive approach to musical com-
position. Her style-blending techniques
generate the kind oI Iresh and Iunky
product that exempliIies the heart and soul
oI west coast hip-hop. Her latest project
'Vweto, demonstrates her devotion to
reIreshing complexity. 'Vweto, meaning
'gravity in Swahili, could be described
as alternative jazz, though it also combines
elements oI Iunk, hip-hop and electronica.
'Vweto is Georgia Anne`s Iirst
entirely instrumental creation, and it is an
impressive eIIort, especially considering
that she plays nearly every instrument.
UnIortunately, the whole project Ieels
a little empty without her silky vocals
draped over the imaginative melodies, but
even so, Georgia Anne has produced yet
another cohesive astrophysical-type expe-
rience. Georgia Anne`s signature Ilair Ior
layering loose, discordant melodies over
tight, instrumental beats gives her a unique
sound that may not have great pop appeal,
but is a style coveted among the Ians oI
producers like CaliIornia`s Madlib and
Detroit`s own J. Dilla.
Some bits oI the album drag. A Iew
oI the songs may have retained more
command had they been trimmed down
just a bit. The album kicks oII with
the enchanting shuIIle oI 'The No No
Chords. The track begs Ior movement
with its steady, Iocused beat and subtle
melody. 'IOnkrocker is precisely what it
alludes to, it is somehow gritty and groovy
and ambient all at once. This is diIIicult to
understand without actually hearing the
gutsy, almost ominous electronic beats
that meet extended electric guitar riIts
and an especially Iunky slap bass rhythm,
accented by a snare. 'IOnk stroll is
another song in which the title is indicative
oI the tune. When the synthesizer joins
the mix the track is elevated to that spacey
plane where Georgia Anne seems to most
enjoy spending her time. The track evokes
a scene oI AIros, bell-bottoms, beads and
air thick with Nag Champa.
Though 'Vweto may never be her most
popular creation, Muldrow has once again
remained true to her artistic commitment
to evolution and intention, and has done so
with elegance and panache.
The Bottom Line:
While this album may not have a place
in the Top 40, it is the perIect music Ior
setting an earthy, groovy, soulIul ambi-
ance, but more importantly, Ior those
who value precision in composition, this
is a thinking piece. Regardless oI your
approach to her album, Georgia Anne
will not allow you to sit still. 'Vweto will
move you.

In iqSy, Rolling Sione magazine
announced on ile covei of ileii
Decembei issue ilai R.E.M. was

Now, afiei i yeais of playing iogeilei,
R.E.M. las decided io call ii a day. As
a final faiewell, ile gioup ieleased
"Paii Lies, Paii Heaii, Paii Tiuil, Paii
Gaibage," a iwo-disc (o-song caieei-
spanning ieiiospeciive.
Tle album opens wiil "Gaidening
ai Nigli" fiom ileii iqS: debui
EP "Clionic Town," and coniinues
iliougloui ileii iliee-decade caieei.
Eveiyiling is coveied, fiom ile eaily
jangle pop io ile laie 'Sos siadium iocl,
ile follsy melancloly of ile eaily 'qos,
ile mellow laze of ile lasi decade and
eveiyiling in beiween.
Tleie aie a few suipiising bui
welcome addiiions io ile album, mosi
noiably "Siiiing Siill," "Life and How io
Live Ii," "New Tesi Lepei" and "Living
Well Is ile Besi Revenge." }usi aboui
eveiy oilei song falls undei ile leadei
of, "Well yeal, iley pieiiy mucl lad io
include ." Eveiy song you've leaid of
- even if you don'i lisien io R.E.M. - aie
iiglifully pieseni.
"Paii Lies" also coniains iliee biand
new iiacls, including R.E.M.'s final
single, "We All Go Bacl io Wleie We
Belong." As a swan song foi ile band, ii's
flai-oui faniasiic. Tle Baclaiacl-siyled
pop oiclesiial pioduciion piovides
ile peifeci baclgiound io lead singei
Miclael Siipe's wisiful lyiics.
On ile oilei end, "A Monil of

lyiics aboui enjoying ile weelend. (Tlis
is suiely ile "paii gaibage" R.E.M. was
ialling aboui.) "Hallelujal" is ai leasi a
moie cuiious iiacl, wiil iis dailly beau-
iiful pioduciion. Ii's a fine siandalone,
bui ii's placemeni ai ile veiy end of ile
album seems odd, especially since "We
All Go Bacl" piovides sucl a fiiiingly
siiiiing conclusion.
As a piimei on ile evoluiion of sucl a
sioiied gioup, "Paii Lies" does an excel-
leni job. Ii will foievei be impossible io
compleiely sum up ile ile R.E.M. expe-
iience on a single disc - oi even iwo -
bui "Paii Lies" males a dain good effoii.
The Bottom Line:
"Paii Lies, Paii Heaii, Paii Tiuil, Paii

Well ilai neid was Buddy Holly, and
le was "ile single mosi inf lueniial
cieaiive foice in eaily iocl and ioll,"
accoiding io ciiiic Biuce Edei. Wiil
classic liis lile "Peggy Sue," "Send

le was on lis way io becoming a
iocl and ioll legend. Unfoiiunaiely,
lis caieei was cui iiagically sloii ai
ile age of ::. Holly, and fellow musi-
cians, Ricli Valens, and }.P. "Tle Big

: yeais laiei, seveial musicians lave
gaileied iogeilei io pay lomage
io ile legend and wisl lim a lappy
yil biiilday wiil "Rave on Buddy
Holly."
Paul McCaiiney, Tle Blacl Keys,
Sle 8 Him, and Cee Lo Gieen aie a
few of ile aiiisis wlo lave coveied
ile songs made famous by Holly.
Alilougl ile music and lyiics aie
beauiifully simple, ileii depil and
meaning iings iiue and ioucling io
ile leaii siill ioday. Foi insiance,
in "Tiue Love Ways" peifoimed by
My Moining }aclei, ile lyiics aie so
siiiiing and }im }ames' voice is veiy
pleading. Tle covei is siunning,
and ile effoiilessness of ile guiiai
is peifeci. Ii is a veiy sad song ilai
ieacles inio youi soul, and leaves an
impiession of soiiow on ile lisienei.
Biian Wilson, fiom Tle Beacl Boys,
decided io coniiibuie io ile album
wiil a covei of "Lisien io Me." Tle
song is caicly, yei slow and lingeiing.
Tle baclup vocals ilai accompany
Wilson aie siiiling and impeccable,
and add a gieai old-iime feel, iemi-
nisceni of Holly's eia.
Tleie aie a ioial of iq iiacls on ilis

Tle new loi peifoimei on ile
scene is a young man fiom Honolulu,
Biuno Mais. He was boin inio a
family of musicians, and began
developing lis musical abiliiies
eaily. Afiei ligl sclool, ile leaii-
iliob moved oui io Los Angeles io
puisue lis dieam caieei in ile music
indusiiy. Afiei a few unsuccessful
aiiempis wiil Moiown Recoids le
joined up wiil Ailaniic Recoids,
wleie le guesi siaiied on singles
lile "Noilin' on You" by B.o.B and
"Billionaie" by Tiavie McCoy. Sloiily
afiei, le ieleased "Doo Wops and
Hooligans" wlicl gained immedi-
aie iecogniiion, ilanls io lis smasl
liis "}usi ile Way You aie" and
"Gienade." Tle album lii numbei
iliee on ile Billboaid :oo, and Mais
was nominaied foi seven Giammys,
and ieceived ile awaid foi Besi Male
Pop Vocal foi "}usi ile Way You aie."
Tle Album opens wiil ile dia-
maiic iiacl "Gienade," and ii is
unmisialable ilai ilis young man
las a poweiful voice. Tle lyiics
aie cleesy, bui le males ii woil.
"Gienade" is followed by lis smasl
lii "}usi ile Way You Aie." Tle song
is absoluiely adoiable and males any
female lisiening wisl io be Mais'
giil. His voice is so puie and peifeci,
and le males ii seem so effoiiless.
One of ile songs on ilis ien-
iiacl album is "Maiiy You," ii is
quiie caicly and clevei. Tle lyiics
aie simple, ile song ialls aboui
laving noiling io do one nigli wiil
a poclei full of casl, so wly noi
gei maiiied? Mais' vocals aie goi-
geous and meli ile leaii. He mixes
a iaspy pleading sound wiil a puie
and clean ione. Tleie is no doubi
ilis boy las an amazing sound and
iange.
A iiuly beauiiful song is "Talling

piojecis lis biolen leaii in lis
woids and melody. He sounds
beseecling and launiing, and males
one wani io ciy oui, "Biuno, ii's ol,
I'm leie foi you!"
"Doo Wops and Hooligans" is a
combinaiion of pop and aii ilai is a
gieai siaii foi Mais' caieei.
Bottom Line:
Tlis album is a colleciion of feel
good pop songs ilai aie cleesy, bui
aie woiil lisiening io. If you aie a
fan of R8B oi Reggae ii would be
a wise idea io iale a lool ai "Doo

iliougl loiioi, animaiion, ielevi-

cals: ile one and only }olnny Depp.
His veisaiiliiy and believabiliiy
lave made lim one of Hollywood's
go-io aciois. Wiil "Tle Rum Diaiy"
iecenily ieleased, lei's iale a lool
bacl inio ile long and successful
caieei of Mi. Depp.
Benny 8 1oon" (jj)
"Benny 8 }oon" is consideied io
be one of ile gieaiesi iomaniic
comedies of all iime. Ii's a sioiy
aboui Benny (Aidan Quinn), an
auio meclanic wlo iales caie of
lis menially ill sisiei }oon (Maiy
Masieision). Howevei, ilings
clange wlen Sam (}olnny Depp)
moves in. Soon Sam and }oon fall in
love bui Benny is noi ioo leen aboui
ile idea.
"Benny 8 }oon" is a simple bui
beauiiful sioiy ilai slows low love
can conquei all. Ii iales a clance
wiil placing a menially ill giil as
ile love inieiesi, and ii liis pieiiy
laid. Bui ile film pulls ii off. Tle
aciing is all-aiound solid. Quinn
plays ile siiaigli man peifecily
and Masieison is biilliani as ile
ouispolen }oon. Howevei, ii's Depp
wlo sieals ile slow. Depp plays a
claiaciei playing a claiaciei - le
belaves lile ecceniiic veisions of
film siais Busiei Keaion and Clailie
Claplin. Tleie is a scene wleie
le copies Keaion peifecily wlilsi
siieei peifoiming, and ii's lysieii-
cal. Tlis movie also sled ligli on
ile one-lii wondei "oo Miles" by
ile Pioclaimeis. If you'ie looling foi
an excelleni and ecceniiic iomaniic
comedy, "Benny 8 }oon" is one film
io clecl oui.
Oead Man" (jj)
Afiei man weni io ile moon in
ile '6os, Hollywood made a slifi
in genie focus, and sadly Wesieins
weie lefi oui in ile cold. Howevei,
in iqq ile wesiein genie gained a
gold siai wiil "Dead Man," ilanls io
diiecioi }im }aimuscl. }olnny Depp
plays William Blale, an accouniani
wlo is on ile iun afiei muideiing a
man. He encounieis Nobody (Giay
Fiamei), an Indian wlo piepaies
lim foi a spiiiiual jouiney.
"Dead Man" is a veiy obscuie
film fiom Depp's caieei and is
liglly undeiiaied. Tle film uses
ile noii ieclnique, wlicl is wlen
ile movie las unbalanced compo-
siiions and low-ley ligliing. Tlis
"acid wesiein" siyle, wlicl was fiisi
developed in ile '6os and eaily 'yos,
was ieinvigoiaied by "Dead Man."
Tle film plays oui similai io a sileni
movie wiil veiy liiile dialogue
and emplasizes caiefully-foimed
sei pieces and visuals. Neil Young
wioie ile launiing musical scoie
io accompany ile movie, wlicl will
leave a lasiing impiession on audi-
ences. Unlile many wesieins befoie
ii, "Dead Man" did noi sieieoiype
Ameiican Indians, placing ilem in
a moie iealisiic ligli. Tle film is
inieiesiing io waicl and if you aie
paying aiieniion you can spy iefei-
ences io William Blale's poeiiy.
"Dead Man" is consideied one ile
besi films ai ile end of ile iwenii-
eil ceniuiy.

Wlen someone says }olnny Depp
ile image ilai pops inio many

Capiain }acl Spaiiow fiom "Piiaies

"Piiaies" is ile peifeci adveniuie

wiiiy dialogue and a siunning scoie
by Hans Zimmeiman. Tle aciing
is biilliani, and Geoffiey Rusl as
Baibossa will send sliveis down

ii is Depp wlo sieals ile slow. He

Tleie lave been many famous

diiecied, Depp las been in
seven. Tleii fiisi ieam-up was
on ile dail faniasy "Edwaid

an incompleie piojeci named
Edwaid (}olnny Depp), a meclani-
cal man wiil scissois foi lands.
Afiei lis invenioi (Vinceni Piice,
in lis lasi significani film iole)

Wiesi) and sle iales lim lome io

iiies io live a subuiban life and
eveniually falls foi Peg's daugliei,

Tim Buiion is a masiei sioiy-
iellei and las a veiy disiinciive

woild wiil a saiiiic view of life in
subuibia. His vision ieally comes io

Once again Depp does an excelleni

Tle besi iling aboui ile movie

Ii las a dail and mysieiious feel, bui
