DESCRIPTION

The student voice of Cal State Fullerton

Transcript

  • The stories of many individu-als miraculous encounters are seen and heard simultaneous-ly throughout the room as their hands depict their story on vari-ous sized screens. Combinations of visual and auditory elements give the viewer a rare experience not often provided by common art exhibits.

    Miracle Report is an inter-active art exhibit by Julianne Swartz and Ken Landauer that is currently on display at Cal State Fullertons Grand Central Art Center in the downtown district of Santa Ana.

    The public viewing of the ex-hibit on Saturday proved to be a success as many visitors left the busy streets of downtown Santa Ana and entered the Grand Central Art Center curious to know more.

    The inspiration for this ex-hibit is the idea of miracles. Two personal believers in the act of miracles, Michael Diaz and Juan Garcia, both 17, are stu-dents at Century High School in Santa Ana who visited the Grand Central Art Center because they, too, were curious about Miracle Report.

    As they enter the dark room, the loud noises instantly demand their attention. Various stories are all presented at once, told by people of all ages, genders and backgrounds.

    Overwhelming at first, the vis-itors are not sure where to even begin. There are screens and sounds in every direction. Each story has its own audio and is shown on its own screen. In or-der to hear the story fully the viewer must solely focus on a particular video, leaving them fully engrossed in that particular installation.

    It gives me an eerie feeling in a way, Diaz said after viewing the Miracle Report. But after I started listening you started get-ting a feeling toward the personlike a small connection. Youre kind of in their position. Youre just thinking to yourself, Wow, they actually went through this kind of stuff.

    Some stories are shown on a large wall projector with a speak-er while others are displayed on the f loor, requiring the audi-ence to crouch down and listen through a pair of headphones. But every story is similar in the sense that it tells the tale of a miracle and is told only by hand move-ments - the artists way of making the scene more intimate.

    For example, by squatting down to the f loor the viewer can expe-rience a young girls account of a dog that was hit by a car and, just moments before it was to be put down, was miraculously healed. However, on the opposite side of the room, the viewer can listen to a story of a man who calls out for miracles in his daily life.

    Locals to the area, Theo Hirsh and his daughter Briauna Hirsh frequently visit downtown Santa Ana.

    Chancellor Tim White explains plan in State of the CSU

    Franz Nalezny, a 22-year-old graphic design student at Cal State Fullerton, died Friday while driving to his parents house in Coto de Caza, a private gated com-munity east of Mission Viejo.

    The Orange County Register reported that Nalezny, who lived in a dor-mitory but frequently vis-ited family and friends on the weekends, was driving south on Vista Del Verde at about 7:40 p.m. He was within 0.5 miles of his parents house when his Mazda3 hatchback collided with a curb. It overturned and hit another curb before launching into the air, col-liding with a tree and end-ing up sitting atop a wall close to a house on Cherry Hills Drive.

    Authorities used a crane and other equipment to safely bring the car to the ground and remove Naleznys body. This was completed shortly after 1 a.m. Saturday.

    Orange County Fire Authority Capt. Steve Concialdi said Nalezny died instantly. No passen-gers were in Naleznys car, and the crash did not cause structural damage to the home.

    Nalezny graduated from Tesoro High School in 2009 and attended Saddleback College, earning an asso-ciates degree in 2012. He planned to graduate CSUF this year.

    California Highway Patrol officers are investigating what caused the crash. They said they did not find any obvious skidmarks in the vi-cinity of the crash site.

    California State University Chancellor Timothy P. White spoke of his plans to invest an ad-ditional $50 million into CSU schools to increase student success and high quality degree comple-tion during his State of the CSU address Thursday at Cal State Long Beach.

    White said the money will be invested in seven key areas.

    Hiring more ten-ure-track faculty: The plan calls for increased hiring in tenure-track faculty to lower the ratio between tenured faculty and lec-turers. It is our outstand-ing faculty who go above and beyond to help stu-dents secure a meaningful future, he said.

    Increase student advis-ing: White said student advising is crucial to stu-dent success, describing it as potentially a make-or-break issue for students. Therefore, appointing pro-fessional advisors across the campuses to support the current staff and e-ad-vising technologies is a priority.

    Expanding the bot-tleneck initiative: While work in this area is al-ready underway with the cross-campus enrollment option implemented in the fall 2013 semester, White wants to increase those options. This includes finding more innova-tive solutions and more choices to help students sail through enrolling in the courses they need.

    Better student prepa-ration before college: Another area White dis-cussed was better pre-paring first-year students for college and increasing support to underserved students.

    We must invest more to help incoming first-year students attain college readiness before arriving on campus, White said.

    More applied learn-ing opportunities: A ma-jor goal is to increase high-impact practices. These include service learning, internships, study abroad programs and undergraduate par-ticipation in applied re-search programs. Such practices help drive stu-dent achievement and en-gagement, White said.

    Including more da-ta-driven decisions: By streamlining the data-col-lection process from all 23 campuses, and using the data to make informed de-cisions, it will allow them to enhance the quality of the programs and increase student success.

    To make the wisest de-cisions possible, they need to be evidence and data based, and often times we cant access the informa-tion in a timely fashion on a campus or across the system without making 23 phone calls, White said.

  • To commemorate the centennial of World War I, Cal State Fullerton took an in-depth look at different aspects of the fifth-deadliest conflict in history during a sympo-sium held Friday in the Pollak Library.

    Two CSUF professors joined one from Chapman University to give pre-sentations on the issues during a commemorative in-depth lecture and dis-cussion about World War I history being rewritten and revisited.

    In the 100 years since the war, much has been written, but some aspects of the conflict have been overlooked.

    Lynn M. Sargeant, a pro-fessor of history at CSUF, in her presentation, Writ-ing Russia Back Into the History of World War I, explained modern histo-rians are giving Russia a deeper look.

    So theres a new proj-ect that was launched just a couple years ago called Russias great war and revolution and just from the title, you can al-ready see that theyre try-ing to bring these two is-sues back together, to see this as an entire period,

    Sargeant said.This project rewrites

    Russias history on the Great War in the context of the entirety World War I and Russias revolution that is covered from 1914 to 1922.

    This has more than 150 historians involved from many countries involved and will be in publication of books with 15 volumes. It is intended for both ca-sual readers and history buffs.

    Jennifer Keene, chair and professor of history at Chapman University, fo-cused on putting the idea of World War I being a global war outside of what was written in the history books with her presenta-tion, titled Race and Em-pire: The First World War as a Global War.

    Keene explained how West African and Austra-lian troops had gotten in-volved in the war.

    Overall we have 166,000 West Africans who serve and approximately 31,000 of them are killed, and this is about 15.5 percent, she said. In Australia, we have about 413,000 Aus-tralians who serve in the war and 331,000 of those serve overseas. Thats a tremendous number.

    Keene emphasized the participation of West Af-rican and Australian sol-diers contributed to the global nature of the war.

    We see a moment where both of these troops have the ability to become

    either forcers or foes of empire ... they actually are a little bit of each, Keene said.

    Nancy Fitch, a professor of history at CSUF, gave an overview of the Battle of Gallipoli, one of the major battles of World War I.

    The Battle of Gallipoli has inf luenced popular culture in a significant way. Numerous films, songs and documenta-ries were inspired by the conflict.

    Actually, theres more popular Gallipoli figures in much more popular culture than a lot of the battles that traditional-ly were associated with World War I ... most re-cently there was a Gallip-oli art prize given in En-gland, Fitch said.

    Fitch said the battle had been a somewhat touchy subject in history.

    There is something about this battle that has touched a lot of nerves and I think continues to do so, she said.

    During a discussion on World War I as a global war, Keene said people from different countries look back at the war with different perspectives, usually focused on their own nations experience.

    The commemoration or the interest in World War I and its centennial is not even, we say its a global war but not every-body is interested in it in the same kind of way, Keene said.

    The Cal State Fullerton Communications Depart-ment has partnered with Hispanicize Wire, the National Association of Hispanic Journalists and Florida International Uni-versity to launch an in-novative survey targeting Hispanics in the journal-ism profession and their use of social media and technology.

    This groundbreaking survey is part of CSUFs Latino Communications Initiative, directed by Inez Gonzalez. The goal is to generate insights into the adversities that Latino journalists are faced with as well as the effect of so-cial media in the field.

    Gonzalez said only 4 percent of journalists are Latinos.

    We want to under-stand how are the Latino

    journalists in the United States feeling, she said.

    The five-minute online survey, set to launch Tues-day, will focus on Latino journalists who work for Hispanic and non-Hispan-ic media outlets in order to raise awareness to the challenges they deal with in the profession.

    It will ask about de-mographic information, needs as professionals, perception of the indus-try as well as technolo-gy and social media, said Dean Kazoleas, director of CSUFs Maxwell Center for International Com-munications and Media, who has been leading the survey efforts alongside Gonzalez.

    Its going to be invalu-able, not only for Fullerton, but really for the nation to find out what the challeng-es are, Gonzalez said.

    Gonzalez said she ex-pects the survey will di-vulge an overwhelming de-mand for social media and technology training for the journalists who work for smaller outlets. They only have a camera and they go

    alone and they do every-thing, she said.

    While the survey can provide valuable infor-mation, the organizations understand it is not a com-plete academic study.

    Were going to pro-

    vide this data, a snapshot, its not a complete study on all the different chal-lenges, Gonzalez said. Its a snapshot and then its the beginning of a conversation.

    That conversation, Gon-zalez said, will hopefully permeate throughout the

    nation.CSUF is the official West

    Coast campus for Hispan-icize Wire, a social media resource for Hispanic mar-keters and influencers.

    Although the survey is being conducted for work-ing Hispanic journalists, Gonzalez and Kazoleas hope they will be able to apply the survey data in the classrooms.

    Part of this initiative is not just to train students but to provide profession-al development opportu-nities for professionals, Kazoleas said. But at the same time we can take that information and put it back into our educational curriculum.

    Kazoleas said 35 per-cent of students attending CSUF are Latino, and the Communications Depart-ment alone is slightly over 50 percent Hispanic.

    The results of the sur-vey will provide what Ka-zoleas and Gonzalez call invaluable information that will prepare the His-panic students of the de-partment to succeed in their journalistic careers.

    It will illuminate the gaps in knowledge so that they can be addressed more capably.

    A certificate program that is another part of the Latino Communications Initiative is also in the works to give students ad-ditional resources. These certificates are designed to give an edge and relevant experience to students, Gonzalez said.

    Starting in the fall 2014 semester, students will be able to receive a Spanish certificate by taking four additional communica-tions courses taught in Spanish.

    The results of the survey will be unveiled in Miami as part of the Hispanic Journalist Showcase at the fifth annual Hispanicize 2014 event from April 1-4. Once they are released, Kazoleas expects they will be able to incorporate the data into classrooms fairly quickly.

    The need is there for this to be done and so Im really excited that Cal State Fullerton gets to do it, Gonzalez said.

    The 57 Freeway will undergo construction this week to improve and widen northbound lanes between Katella Avenue and Lambert Road, according to the Orange County Trans-portation Authority.

    Several off-ramps and on-ramps will be closed; the longest shutdown will be for construction on the off-ramp to Orangeth-orpe Avenue, which is scheduled to last about 57 hours starting at 8 p.m. Friday.

    Construction is scheduled to make sure that no two con-secutive on-ramps or off-ramps will be si-multaneously closed.

    For more informa-tion and a map of the planned improvements, visit OCTA.nets section on the 57 Freeway.

    Barrel bombs rained down in an air assault Saturday killing 90 people in Aleppo, Syr-ia, according to CNN.

    The victims included women and children in various neighbour-hoods in the rebel stronghold.

    Barrel bombs are barrels filled with ex-plosives and shrapnel and can demolish en-tire buildings with one hit.

    Al-Ansari, a district in Aleppo, was hit with 17 airstrikes in four hours. Air raids have become an almost dai-ly, punishing occur-rence in Aleppo.

    News of the bomb-ings came a day after the Syrian peace talks in Geneva had ended Friday. The next round of talks is scheduled for Feb. 10.

    Over 100,000 peo-ple marched through Paris and Lyon Sunday in protest against the French governments decision to legalize same-sex marriage and other policies, accord-ing to Reuters.

    The demonstrators accused French Presi-dent Franois Hollande of having family pho-bia and denounced gender theory courses to be implemented in schools.

    Other policies the protesters opposed in-cluded governmental support for assisted reproduction for same-sex couples and surro-gate options and easier access to abortion.

    Students from 100 schools were kept home by their parents last Monday, in a flash pro-test against the gender theory lessons.

    Boost transfer de-gree completion rates: Admissions preference to transfer students com-ing from community col-leges, is one of the ways White spoke about to im-prove access and degree completion within two years for community col-lege transfer students.

    White addressed the deterioration of cam-pus buildings across the CSU. Forty-eight percent of state-owned build-ings were constructed 40 or more years ago, and tackling the issue of the schools deferred main-tenance backlog is esti-mated to cost close to $2 billion.

    White also emphasized providing more access to college from working stu-dents from low-income families. He called for the CSU to improve upon the Master Plan that state government estab-lished for public higher education in 1960 to suit the needs of the current time and reach the goal of an additional 1 mil-lion college graduates by the year 2025 to suit the needs of the economy.

    We simply must main-tain a laser-like focus on student achievement and the forward-looking growth of this great state of California, White said.

    Students gathered Thursday to express their grievances with gender stereotypes and sexual-ization in advertising in a Pink Sheep group dis-cussion titled Advertising and Reality hosted by the WoMens Center.

    English major Matthew Mooers, 21, is the facilita-tor for Pink Sheep events. He led the group in sharing which advertisements they find irksome and patterns or themes that they have noticed recurring through-out popular media.

    Students raised con-cern over marketing that depicts violence against women, which has been seen in advertisements for fashion and alcohol.

    (Women are) very scant-ily dressed, blindfolded, tied up in a chair, that kind of thing in such advertise-ments, said Crystal Wong, 20, who is a double major in American studies and sociology. And because that theme has been repli-cated so many times, they dont even know where theyre going with it any-more and I think they just threw it out there.

    One of the advertise-ments the group brought up was an infamous 2007 Dolce & Gabbana adver-tisement depicting a man holding down a wom-an, with three other men standing around them. The controversial display

    was used as an example on Pink Sheeps Facebook event page.

    It looked like a gang rape, basically, Wong said.

    Ray Edmondson, a 24-year-old biochemistry major, said he did not un-derstand who the target audience is for such explic-it advertisements.

    If you wear our clothes (as a woman), youll get gang raped? Is that the ta-gline? Edmondson asked. If you wear our clothes (as a man), youll be part of a gang rape?

    Another point of criti-cism was changing toys or other products tradition-ally marketed to boys to be suitable for girls simply by giving them pink col-ors, adorning them with flowers and adding other decorations that are ste-reotypically considered to be feminine. The trend has even extended to products like guns.

    Its this field of grass and flowers and its like, fi-nally, its a scanning elec-tron microscope for her and its pink, Edmondson said as he described one advertisement he saw.

    Students also brought up the arbitrary nature of how society associates col-ors and designs with girls or boys, especially pink and blue.

    Blue was for girls and pink was for boys before the 1950s, Wong said. And then they switched it.

    Wong said pink was not always seen as a femi-nine color, because it was a shade of red. The color pink was once used to de-note the British Empires

    territorial control at the height of its dominance, leading to sayings like the sun never sets on the British Empire.

    In addition to advertise-ments that demean or un-fairly stereotype women, students pointed out that advertisements made ste-reotypes of men as well.

    Mooers brought up com-mercials for antidepres-sants and other products geared toward treating mental health issues.

    I see a lot of the men in depression ads as be-ing older or just teenag-ers who are skinny, and theyre not (displayed as being) masculine, Mooers said.

    The attendees also talk-ed among themselves con-cerning how sexualization emerges in commercials

    for products that are not sexual in nature, such as Carls Jr. hamburgers.

    I think theyre at the point where theyre just parodying themselves, Edmondson said. They dont take themselves se-riously. Its like, f*** it,

    its funny. Were gonna do it because everybody ex-pects to see it.

    Pink Sheep events take place every Thursday at 5:30 p.m. in University Hall 208. The upcoming talk is planned to focus on sports.

    The Daily Titan would like to pay hom-age to Cal State Fullerton womens basketball assis-tant coach Monica Quan, who was killed one year ago today.

    She was 28. Quan was killed in an Irvine parking structure with her fianc Keith Lawrence, 27, by ex-LAPD officer Christopher Dorner, launching a state-wide manhunt.

    She was bright, driv-en and loved basketball and was passionate about teaching young women the game and about life, said Marcia Foster, then-head coach of the womens basketball team, at a pre-game tribute to Quan last year.

    Thousands paid their respects for the couple at their funeral, held at Concordia University, where the two met.

    Even though we feel Monica and Keith were taken from us too ear-ly, Im grateful for the 28 years we had with her, said Quans father and re-tired LAPD Capt. Randal Quan at her funeral ser-vice last February.

    The State of the Union, addressed Tuesday, provid-ed Americans with promis-es of growth and equality, but only lightly touched on important issues such as gun control, privacy and increasing spending on higher education.

    For a president who does not have to be concerned with re-election, the final term of his presidency can be an opportunity to bring about reforms that can truly make a difference in the lives of the American people.

    This is easier said than done. The 113th Congress is the most dysfunctional and least productive Congress in history.

    President Barack Obama realizes the American people are fed up with Washington and is

    willing to do whatever he can to get things done for the American people.

    So wherever and when-ever I can take steps with-out legislation to expand opportunity for more American families, thats what Im going to do, Obama said in his speech.

    The tragic reality of the current political process threatens the system of checks and balances laid down by the forefathers of the country, but desperate times call for increasingly radical measures.

    If the president must employ an increasing number of executive or-ders, then he can at least tackle the pressing issue of background checks for firearms.

    An overwhelming major-ity of Americans support background checks for fire-arms, an executive order from the president would be a simple step that may help curtail the prepon-derance of fatalities due to gun violence.

    By preventing the men-tally ill or criminals from having access to firearms, we can reduce the number of deaths by suicide and homicide respectively.

    Executive orders by the president can only reach so far and although 53 percent of Americans dis-approve of government surveillance programs, the president has failed to ade-quately address the issue.

    A speech by the presi-dent a few weeks prior re-counted the long history of surveillance in the The United States encouraged and reinforced the cur-rent intelligence gathering paradigm.

    According to a study by the New American Foundation, a Washington based think tank, the greatest threat to counter-terrorism efforts is the lack of communication between various police and govern-ment investigatory agen-cies, not the bulk collection of meta data.

    The president should side with the majority of the Americans and become the exemplar of privacy rights this country so desperately needs.

    With a non-operation-al Congress the president seeks to be the champion to lead the American people to greater income equality and a brighter future.

    During the State of the

    Union, the president laid out plans to improve ac-cess to high quality pre-school education and the reigning in of student loans to manageable monthly payments.

    Following the reces-sion, a majority of states scaled back their spend-ing on education and have made little in the way of returning to level of spend-ing achieved before the recession.

    Obamas proposal to help student loan holders provides a bandage to the student debt crisis, but the federal government must step up to help pro-vide financially struggling states with funding for education.

    Obama seeks to keep the United States at the fore-front of the next great tech-nological revolution, but this will only be achieved if it is built on the pillars of a strong American education system.

    The final term of a pres-ident is one of great op-portunity to genuinely improve the lives of the American people without fear of re-election, and Obama should be keen to capitalize on it.

    Under President Barack Obamas immigration re-form acts and the TRUST Act signed by Gov. Jerry Brown in late 2013, author-ities throughout California are becoming restricted as to which undocument-ed immigrants they are able to hold and deport. The TRUST Act prevents the deportation of undoc-umented immigrants so long as they do not have a hardened criminal lifestyle or past.

    Anaheim is one of the many cities that is affected by this decision.

    According to radio sta-tion KPCC, officials in Orange Countys biggest city turned down a pro-posal to call for a stop to deportations by the Obama administration.

    It is clear this decision by the city of Anaheim will not stop the deportation of undocumented immi-grants but also encourage many more undocumented to enter America.

    Some Americans feel that if the undocumented immigrants are not phys-ically harming anyone, then what is the harm in them staying in America? Although undocument-ed immigrants may not be physically harming American citizens, they should continue to be de-ported simply because of the principle. They did not follow the appropriate pro-cedures to be here and they should not be rewarded for now being law-abiding citizens.

    However, this issue be-comes problematic as the population in Anaheim may not be as accurate as some think.

    According to the Federal Bureau of Investigations most recent Uniform Crime Report, there are 344,526 people living in Anaheim. In the past five years, the citys population has in-creased by nearly 10,000 people.

    In the most recent data by the United States Census Bureau, 52.8 percent of Anaheims population is made up of Hispanics or Latinos and 37.7 percent of the overall population in Anaheim is foreign-born.

    As stated in the Uniform Crime Report, there are currently 1,279 violent crimes a year in the city of Anaheim as well as 10,070 property crimes.

    The Uniform Crime Report from 2007-2012 documented that vio-lent crimes and property crimes are not drastically increasing nor decreas-ing as the population is steadily rising. There is not causation between the ris-ing population and the fluctuating crime rate.

    Of course Americans are concerned with keeping their country safe. Who wants to open their doors to hardened criminals? However, crime should not be the hot topic when it comes to discussing undocumented immi-grants. Crime, along with issues of taxes, insurance and healthcare should be equally discussed.

    The TRUST Act is just

    one more loophole to re-ward undocumented im-migrants by allowing them to stay in America.

    In October 2013 Gov. Jerry Brown also signed a bill allowing undocument-ed immigrants to obtain a drivers license.

    However, a criminal lifestyle shouldnt be the determining factor in de-ciding an undocumented immigrants deportation status. If an immigrant wants to call America their home they need to follow proper protocol to become a citizen.

    Informed individuals have heard the struggles of becoming an American cit-izen. It is time-consuming, expensive and not neces-sarily guaranteed.

    However, if the United States continuously re-wards the undocument-ed immigrants within the country, the small amount of people who do follow the proper protocol to obtain citizenship will become ab-solute. In turn, the problem of undocumented immi-gration will not only con-tinue to happen, but will also increase at a signifi-cant rate.

    No one ever questioned his legacy.

    From the moment then-NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue read his name as the No. 1 pick in the 1998 draft, Peyton Manning was destined to enter the league as one of the most highly recruited prospects in recent memory.

    Despite questions about his arm strength and mo-bility entering his rookie season, Mannings career led him to a path of great-ness, placing him on the fig-urative Mount Rushmore of quarterbacks with the likes of Joe Montana and John Elway.

    After his senior sea-son at the University of Tennessee, Manning left the Volunteers, holding nearly every school pass-ing record and becoming a consensus first-team All-American.

    Manning took the league by storm, setting five dif-ferent NFL rookie records, including most touchdown passes in a season by a rookie with 26, which was later tied by Russell Wilson in 2012.

    After Tony Dungy be-came the head coach of the Indianapolis Colts in 2003, Manning entered one of the greatest stretches by a quarterback in an NFL season. He was named the NFL MVP and won the ESPY for Best NFL Player in 2003 and 2004. However, his team still struggled to make a significant push in the playoffs.

    Critics were prepared to rank him in the list of all-time greatest quarterbacks to never win a Super Bowl with Hall of Fame inductee Dan Marino.

    In 2006, Manning was finally able to taste great-ness as he hoisted the Lombardi Trophy after de-feating the Chicago Bears in Super Bowl XLI, 29-17.

    The 2010 season proved to be his final season, tak-ing a snap under center for the Indianapolis Colts. He finished the season with a then-career high 4,700 yards while leading his team their ninth consecu-tive postseason berth, the first NFL quarterback to do so.

    His 2011 season ended before the it even began, as he was placed on the sea-son-ending injured reserve list after undergoing spinal fusion surgery. The surgery was thought to be career ending.

    Many analysts believed Manning could not return from the injury and play at the level he once did. Although his postseason record was less than spec-tacular, he cemented him-self near the top of nearly

    every major statistical cat-egory for a quarterback and proved time and time again to be one of the greatest to play the game.

    He was a surefire Hall of Famer. All he had to do was decide to walk away.

    But he didnt.The Colts reluctantly re-

    leased Manning to make way for their No. 1 overall draft pick, Andrew Luck, who many compared to Manning. This gave Manning the opportunity to sign with any team he desired, which sparked a league-wide frenzy to ac-quire the services of the 36-year-old quarterback.

    Much like his rookie sea-son, many experts were concerned with his arm strength and mobility in the quarterback after the critical season that ended his 2011 season. However, teams were still desper-ate for his services and the Denver Broncos were lucky enough to put pen to paper. In only his second season with the Broncos, Manning has placed arguably the greatest season by a quar-terback in any level of competition, breaking the NFL record for most yards and touchdowns in a sea-son while leading his team to a Super Bowl appear-ance against the Seattle

    Seahawks.Despite the outcome of

    the game, Manning didnt need this win to cement himself as one of the greats. Hes proven time and time again that he belongs in the conversation as the great-est quarterback to ever play the game.

    This loss, and his post-season record, is noth-ing but a small blemish compared to the past 12 seasons hes spent in the league. Hes more than just a player, hes an icon.

    As a football fan, I would like to thank Manning for always giving 110 percent, each and every time he was on the field. His passion for the game is unmatched. Its been a pleasure to see him compete on Sundays.

    If his health is willing, it would be an honor to wel-come Manning into home for one last season. I can en-vision him returning, hun-grier after being so close to tasting immortality.

    But if not, hes earned the chance to call it quits.

    All that is left for him to do is ride away into the sunset on the back of a white bronco onto the path to football heaven.

  • A touching new dra-ma made its official de-but in theaters last Friday. Starring Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin, Labor Day is a story of relationships and love. Directed by Jason Reitman, the film is based on the 2009 novel by Joyce Maynard.

    While this movie has all the ingredients for the per-fect romance, its surpris-ingly deep despite being predictable at times. What begins as a seemingly un-realistic storyline some-how manages to grab the audiences attention.

    Winslet plays Adele, a reclusive, single mother struggling with depres-sion and loneliness after being abandoned by her husband.

    With no small amount of effort, she manages to live day to day with the endless support from her young son, Henry, played by Gattlin Griffith.

    As the final weekend of summer vacation ap-proaches, Adele musters up the strength to take Henry school shopping. Its during this rare outing that Henry crosses paths with an escaped convict named Frank, played by Brolin.

    While Frank is polite, its obvious that he is in some kind of trouble. Still he manages to convince Adele to take him home with her. While this seems unconventional, to say the least, audiences are sure to be entertained with what follows.

    Instead of the sappy love story one would expect, the story follows Henry as he struggles to understand his mothers developing feelings toward Frank and how that will impact him.

    The movie is narrat-ed by adult Henry, voiced by Tobey Maguire, who gives insight to everything Henry is experiencing over the Labor Day week-end and how it ultimately shapes his life.

    Mother and son warm up to the cooking convict as he begins to bring life back into their home. Young Henry is impressionable and quickly takes a lik-ing to Frank as he begins

    to teach him about tools, cars, cooking and baseball. Henry, being the man of the house, takes these lessons to heart. The two are fluid and natural on screen and bring some comic relief to

    the film. Winslet is great in her

    role and gives an emotional performance as she copes with her shortcomings as a mother and a woman. As she has demonstrated in previous roles, Winslet is not afraid to take on a complex character and make it her own, and with Adele she does just that.

    Battling obvious depres-sion and extreme anxiety, Adele experiences a range of emotions on screen and Winslets powerful perfor-mance will leave audiences rooting for her.

    Anyone looking for an emotional drama should definitely see this film. It will have moviegoers both laughing and crying from one minute to the next. Labor Day really delivers and although it isnt the typical love story, the ro-mance isnt lost with this one.

    There is a lot going on but I still think its in-teresting, said Briauna, referring to the Miracle Report.

    Theo shared a similar opinion with his daugh-ter after experiencing the exhibit.

    (Its) a little chaoticsoothing chaos in a way, he said.

    According to Julianne Swartz and Ken Landauers mission statement for Miracle

    Report, they worked on and produced it while completing their Social Studies residency at Arizona State University. Swartz and Landauer in-terviewed many people during their residency, asking just about anyone to share a miracle they had encountered.

    Swartz and Landauer said the exhibit strives to embody some beau-ty, some hocus-pocus, and some explainable magic.

    The Miracle Report exhibit is an experience that engages sensory needs to make one be-lieve that they are ex-periencing a miracle themselves.

    Miracle Report will be on display through May 11 at Cal State Fullertons Grand Central Art Center.

    With a new semester comes an all new season of shows from Cal State Fullertons renowned Department of Theatre and Dance. This season provides a wide variety of shows for a wide variety of audiences.

    The first production of the spring semester is Dollhouse, directed by James R. Taulli with orig-inal music by Associate Professor of Music, Ken Walicki. Dollhouse is about Nora Helmer, her journey of self-discovery and what she must do to support her and her family in times of hardship.

    This play is a modern-day adaptation of Henrick Ibsens, A Dolls House, written by Theresa Rebeck, playwright and creator of televisions Smash.

    Rebeck follows Ibsens original plot, but moves the 19th century Norwegian setting to a suburb in Connecticut, and explores themes of gender roles and feminism.

    Later in the semester, au-diences get taken back to 1666 France in an off-color comedy. The School for Lies, directed by Jeremy Lewis, tells the story of Celimene, a sassy flirtatious widow, and Frank, a quick-witted traveler with a disdain for society. The two inexpli-cably fall in love with each other as the story plays out.

    This play is based on Molires, The Misanthrope, a satire on French aristo-cratic society. In staying true to Molires style, the play is written in rhym-ing verses. However, play-wright David Ives, cleverly

    brings his own style of vul-gar humor that heightens the wit of the original play and adapts it for a modern audience.

    This seasons musi-cal is Legally Blonde, The Musical, directed by Eve Himmelheber. Based on the hit movie, it unashamed-ly follows the story of Elle Woods, a typical valley-girl bubblehead, Himmelheber said.

    The musical follows Elles journey to win back her ex-boyfriend by attending Harvard Law School with him, and in doing so realiz-es what she is truly capable of.

    I say unashamedly because its very girly, Himmelheber said. Im not a feminine girly type. (Most of the shows Ive done) are gritty, but this one is just fun Its this girl you ab-solutely adore, and you should hate her because shes an airhead but her fighting spirit? Thats why we love her.

    Himmelheber is a huge fan of the award-winning Broadway musical and was glued to her television when it was aired on MTV. She has been waiting for her chance to do this show with her Bachelors of Fine Arts students and her time has arrived. She plans on keeping the show as close

    as possible to the Broadway production, with sets she describes as cinematic and fluid.

    She hopes that audiences leave humming the songs and feeling that with the human spirit anything is possible and that they will go through a cathartic ex-perience with Elle.

    Toward the end of the semester, murder makes its way to the stage with Agatha Christies, And Then There Were None, directed by Mark Ramont.

    Ten people get stranded on an island and one by one they start to die, Ramont said about the plot.

    Ramont plans on taking a 1940s cinematic approach to his production.

    When I think of Agatha Christie and I think of the mystery, and the swash-buckling, and the romance it takes me back to film noir, Ramont said. So were going to do every-thing monochromatic, a la gray scale, a la black and white film and that will play itself into that acting in terms of the choices be-ing a little bit more bold, a little more heightened, and a little less nuanced.

    He is hoping audiences will simply have fun with his production and be sur-prised at the ending when the murderer is revealed.

    Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin fall into an unconventional love affair as Winslets character experiences self-discovery.

    The Cal State Fullerton mens rugby team was de-feated 20-5 on Saturday night against rival Long Beach State at Titan Stadium.

    The teams strength, spir-it and enthusiasm were ap-parent in the first game of the season but fell short in the second half.

    The Titans immediately scored a try within the first 10 minutes of the game from team captain Oliver Colmar-Jones.

    Everyone gets bet-ter at the game every week, Colmar-Jones said. Confidence plays a key role to improve overall as a team.

    As an international ex-change student from New Zealand, Colmar-Jones is an experienced rugby player.

    He has played for 15 years and is knowledgeable on what it takes to perform well on the playing field.

    Colmar-Jones noted that leading by exam-ple and helping the boys out whenever I can are key roles he must fulfill as one of the captains of the team.

    The Titans attempt-ed to retake the lead by half, but fell short as Long Beach State led 8-5 midway through the game.

    After the first game of the season, Head Coach Phil Grieve is confident in his players to grow throughout the season.

    We have good strength in depth, probably one of the only weaknesses we do have to a certain extent is the inexperience. We just strive to be great at what we do, Grieve said.

    The players had shown their dedication and com-mitment for preparation for the season over winter break.

    The boys are out there working hard every week. While everyone was out on Christmas break, we start-ed practice on the fourth (of January), Grieve said.

    The spring season runs from January through April with training in the offseason. Their training

    over the break consisted of intense physical and men-tal conditioning.

    The team practices on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 4 p.m. on the CSUF Intramural Field where all home games are held.

    Chris Abson, a senior full-back who has been playing rugby at CSUF for five years, expressed the physical strength of the team and areas the team can improve upon.

    Its always just little mistakes every time we play Long Beach, Abson said. We made mental mistakes, nothing we did physically was wrong.

    President of the Rugby Club and former player, Artie Hernandez, spoke about the clubs offsea-son training, increased awareness on campus and the teams potential to improve.

    Today, we did well of communicating and try-ing to work as a team, Hernandez said. We have been training, we have been running hard and working hard. A lot of the game comes with experience.

    With an increase in

    spectators we are seeing a heightened interest in rugby at CSUF with new athletes eager to learn the game.

    If we can get more rug-by games and get more people to come then that is what our college universi-ty experience is all about, Hernandez said. We can definitely pick up school spirit if we have a team to cheer for.

    Despite the loss, the Titans will have many opportunities to redeem their first loss on the young season and improve as a team.

    With tough players, Fullertons rugby team has the potential to improve throughout the season. The coach and players said the season outlook looks bright.

    This season, the Titans will be competing against tough opponents such as USC, UC San Diego and Santa Barbara City College among others.

    The Titans will next face off against Claremont College on Feb. 8.

    After winning their pre-vious two tournaments, the Cal State Fullerton mens golf team was un-able to come away with a victory and finished in sev-enth place at the Arizona Intercollegiate at Sewailo Golf Club in Tucson, Ariz.

    Over the two-day tourna-ment, the Titans finished with an overall score of 893, 41 over on the par-72, 7,282-yard course.

    The Titans enjoyed their best score in the first round on Monday when they shot 294, 10-over-par. Unfortunately for the team, they struggled in the sec-ond round shooting 300, 16 over par, finishing the day with a 594, 26-over-par.

    On Tuesday, the Titans looked to rebound from the previous day but finished with a 17-over-par 299, to finish the tournament in seventh place, behind New Mexico State and Brigham Young University, both of which finished with a final score of 873, 21-over-par.

    The 14-team tourna-ment featured seven teams ranked in the Golfstat.com top 50 rankings. Those teams included No. 4 UC Berkeley, No. 19 New Mexico, No. 25 USC, No. 38 BYU, No. 47 Oregon State and No. 49 Arizona. CSUF is ranked No. 26.

    Titan senior Mark Anguiano finished tied for 23rd with a 221, 8-over-par. Anguiano shot a team-best 1-under-par 72 in the first round of the tournament. It was the first time this season in which Anguiano failed to finish in the top 20. In his previous four tournaments, Anguiano had finished in the top three including a tourna-ment championship vic-tory in November at the

    Warrior Princeville Makai Invitational in Hawaii.

    Senior Corey Gard tied for 28th with a 222, 9-over-par, with his best round coming in rounds two and three with a 1-over-par 73.

    Junior Ryan Tetrault and senior teammate Josh Park finished the tournament tied for 37th shooting 225, 12-over-par.

    Freshman Kyle De Silva was 27 over par with a 240 for the tournament. His best score was a 7-over-par 79, which happened in both the first and third rounds.

    Berkeley dominated the tournament, having three players place in the top ten and 15 strokes ahead of the next nearest team.

    Led by seniors Brandon Hagy and Joel Stalter, who each shot 2-under-par for the tournament and fin-ished tied atop the leader-board, the Golden Bears took the tournament title shooting 853, 1-over-par.

    Host Arizona finished in second with a score of 868, 16-over-par, and was led by Wildcats sophomore Kolton Lapa, who shot a 212, 1-under.

    Finishing in third was New Mexico, which took third place with an 870, 18-over-par. Lobos junior Sam Sounders finished tied for fifth with a 214, 1-over.

    The best round of the tournament went to USCs Anthony Paolucci. The Trojans senior, who grew up in Fullerton, shot a 7-under-par 72 in the first round. He finished tied for fifth overall with a 214, 1-over-par.

    The Titans will have two weeks off as they prepare for their next tournament. They will host the Folino Invitational at Industry Hills Golf Club in the City of Industry. Last year, the Titans finished second in the tournament shooting a 913, 61-over-par during the three-day tournament.

    After a promising road trip, the Cal State Fullerton womens bas-ketball team fell to Long Beach State 83-64 Saturday night at Titan Gym.

    On the road trip, they lost a tight game to Big West Conference lead-ers Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and beat UC Santa Barbara for the first time since 1991.

    After a rough end to 2013, the Titans (7-12, 3-3 Big West) have fared much better in 2014.

    The Titans came out

    firing with a lot of energy. Sophomore guard Hailey King and junior guard Tailer Butler each hit two three-pointers and the Titans shot a staggering 62.5 percent from the field and f lying to a 25-12 lead.

    Loved our energy the first ten minutes of the game, Head Coach Daron Park said. I thought we were ready to play, we were excited making shots.

    The Titans cooled off a little bit later in the first half but still maintained an 11-point lead at the eight-minute mark. Thats when the 49ers f lipped the switch.

    We were definitely in a better f low and for me I know that helps me, soph-omore guard Hailey King said. The first half we were playing defense and we had a lot of energy.

    Long Beach State went on a 17-2 run over a five-minute stretch and jumped to a four-point lead. The run was attribut-ed to a string of turnovers and fouls from the Titans. Long Beach junior point guard Hallie Meneses and freshman forward Madison Montgomery led

    the run for the 49ers.Long Beach decided

    to dig in and compete, Park said. They were the aggressors tonight in our gym. And thats a credit to them, thats a credit to their staff. Disappointing for us. I think thats un-characteristic of our team. I think thats uncharacter-istic of this group of kids but it is what it is.

    The officials were not shy about blowing their whistles on both teams and the 49ers took advan-tage. They hit 13 of 16 free throws and went into half-time with a 40-31 lead.

    At the beginning of the second half, the Titans still had trouble making shots.

    The 49ers came out employing a zone de-fense scheme and forced the Titans to settle for low-percentage outside shots instead of attacking the rim.

    They were in a zone and it kind of put us on our heels, senior guard Alex Thomas said. We werent aggressive, we started be-ing passive and we settled for those threes.

    The Titans shot 41

    three-pointers, a new sea-son high, and only made seven of them. They also shot a season-low 28.8 percent from the f loor overall.

    We are who we are and we do what we do. We shoot the ball and I love our team to shoot the ball, Park said. I want us to make more than we did tonight.

    The Titans will return to Titan Gym on Thursday against the UC Riverside Highlanders, who are cur-rently in last place in the Big West. Earlier this sea-son, the Titans beat the Highlanders 82-78 on the road.

    I think we feel good going into this week. We went up to Riverside be-ginning of conference season and played great and beat them. That was a huge win for us, Park said. Weve got to some-how channel that positive energy and feel confident about who we are and what we are capable of doing.

    CUPCAKES

    The road has not been kind to the Cal State Fullerton mens basketball team this season, and their struggles continued at Walter Pyramid Saturday evening as they fell to Long Beach State 75-56.

    The Titans (7-13 over-all, 2-4 in the Big West Conference) now drop to 2-8 when playing away from Titan Gym.

    Poor shooting plagued the Titans early on, who only converted on 22.9 per-cent of their field goals in the first half and shot just 31.3 percent for the game.

    Head Coach Dedrique Taylor got his first taste of the rivalry between Long Beach State and CSUF, but felt like this loss hurt more because the team didnt put in a full effort.

    They all hurt pretty deeply, especially when you dont play your best basket-ball, Taylor said. Those are the ones that hurt the most and today is no differ-ent than any other loss.

    The 49ers took control of the game early, flying out to a 12-3 lead in the first six minutes of play.

    Junior guard Alex Harris singlehandedly brought the Titans back, scoring the next nine points to tie the game with a 3-pointer and a 4-point play as he got fouled on his straightaway 3-point attempt.

    Unfortunately, this would be the closest the Titans would get to a lead.

    Long Beach extended its lead to as many as 15 in the first half and went into the locker room with the score at 38-26.

    Harris and senior guard Michael Williams com-bined to score 21 of the teams 26 first-half points.

    Youre not going to stop two players that good, Long Beach Head Coach Dan Monson said. I didnt think we had them in check at the half; we were just trying to contain them.

    While the two guards shined for CSUF early on, the one-sided offense was no match for a balanced 49ers squad.

    The Titans used full-court pressure in the sec-ond half, which forced 18 Long Beach turnovers,

    but they only converted seven points off of those turnovers.

    We just tried to turn them over, get them sped up a little bit. We knew they werent scoring as much in the half court in the sec-ond half and we kind of held them in check and just tried to dig down and get a stop, Williams said.

    The 49ers quelled the Titan offense in the second half with quick ball move-ment and dribble penetra-tion to get easy layups or a trip to the free-throw line.

    An Achilles heel for CSUF was their free throw percentage in the game.

    The Titans did well to draw fouls and go to the line, but they converted only 47.8 percent of their 23 free throw attempts.

    They were an abysmal 38.5 percent from the char-ity stripe in the second half when facing the Long Beach student section.

    The Long Beach students disrupted the Titan free-throw shooters with their loud roars and waving gi-ant cardboard cutout fac-es of Ron Burgundy and Carrot Top.

    The crowd wasnt that much of an effect in my point of view, but I cant speak for others. But they definitely helped bring some energy to the team that won today, said Williams, who led the Titans with 18 points.

    For the game, Williams and Harris took 32 of the teams 64 total shots, while the rest of the offense struggled to get going.

    The post presence con-tinue to be a weakness for CSUF, as starting forward Marquis Horne scored just two points in 22 minutes.

    Fellow forward Steve McLellan was held score-less with zero shot at-tempts in 15 minutes of action. The big men also struggled to contain the driving guards of Long Beach, as they were only able to record one block.

    CSUF will play Thursday when they visit the UC Riverside Highlanders, whom they defeated 78-73 at Titan Gym back in January.

    Going forward, Fullerton will need a more balanced offense if they hope to make any noise in the Big West tournament.

    Despite a valiant effort, the Cal State Fullerton ice hockey team had their win streak snapped as they fell at home to Northern Arizona University (NAU) 5-2 on Thursday.

    The Titans (22-8-2) suf-fered their first loss since Nov. 10.

    They compiled an im-pressive record of 11-0-2 before the loss to the Ice Jacks.

    Despite travel night-mares from Flagstaff, which included their bus breaking down in the des-ert, NAU played at a speed and tempo the Titans were not accustomed to.

    The Titans played a clean first period and held NAUs high-powered offense to just one goal.

    But once NAU got warmed up the game changed drastically.

    It was a much faster paced game than what we have been playing our last 15 or 20 games, sophomore defender Zach Henderson said. Over time they just kind of wore us down and we just couldnt relieve the pressure in time.

    We just ran into a team that was more prepared than we were, forward David Marabella said. Weve been playing teams that were kind of subpar to NAU and we ran into a tough opponent that was ready to play.

    NAU dominated the sec-ond period.

    They had 20 shots on goal in the second period compared to the Titans seven shots.

    Titan goaltender Brandon Heethuis put up a valiant effort but NAUs of-fense was too much.

    NAU junior forward Ben Russell scored on a beau-tiful backdoor pass from freshman Sean McGowan early in the second peri-od to extend the Ice Jacks lead.

    They were a really good offensive team and we just couldnt get the puck out tonight, CSUF assistant coach Chris Houlihan said. That second period we came out a little bit slow.

    Despite NAUs domi-nance in the second peri-od the Titans penalty kill was solid throughout the game.

    It was a much cleaner game than the Titans pre-vious matchup against Cal State Northridge in which both teams combined for a staggeringly high 28 penalties.

    The CSUF penalty kill unit allowed only one pow-er play goal despite NAUs many chances.

    We like to try an aggres-sive approach, Henderson said. If theyre on their back end or anything like that we are trying to get a puck out as quick as we can. If we can get a quick double team we do that and communication is a big key for us too.

    I think it was really just trying to take away their passing lanes through the middle, Marabella said. We know that they like to try and go through and hit the backdoor pass so were just trying to block

    all those passing lanes that we can.

    Even though the Titans were mostly successful on the penalty kill their pow-er play game left a lot to be desired.

    CSUF failed to score on any power play opportuni-ties. They struggled to even create good shots on the power play.

    We work special teams a lot, Houlihan said. We are definitely a stronger penalty kill team. One

    thing we really need to work on is our power play. We had a few chances to-night on our few power plays but we really didnt have it.

    The third period was a big improvement for the Titans.

    Junior defender Jake Yarter scored on a power-ful slap shot from the blue line just a minute into the period.

    After a penalty on each team NAUs Ben Russell

    scored his third goal of the game to put the Ice Jacks up 5-1.

    Titan captain Trevor Cigich scored in the final minute to finish the game strong for CSUF.

    The Titans will finish up their regular season with back-to-back road contests against the San Jose State University Spartans on Feb. 7 and 8.
