It began in Canada with a small
group oI Iive Iriends outraged
aIter a Toronto police oIIicer
told law students they would
be saIer iI they didn`t dress
like 'a slut. What began as a
conversation among Iriends grew
into a multinational movement.
with protests scheduled across
the world.
The protests. known as
SlutWalks. began in Toronto on
April 3 and have since spread
worldwide and are coming soon
to the streets oI Chicago.
'SlutWalk isn`t iust about
rape and assaultit`s not
about iudging people on their
sexual behavior and on double
standards. said Jamie Keiles.
a co-organizer oI the Chicago
SlutWalk. 'Instead. let`s iudge
them as a person.
Since SlutWalk's inception. it
has become 'a lot broader oI an
idea. Keiles said. 'It`s about
promoting sex positivity and
giving people agency over their
identity. she said.
Keiles said she hopes the
movement will inIorm people
about victim blaming'the
idea that victims oI rape are at
Iault and somehow their actions
contributed to the Iact that they
were assaulted. she said. 'It`s
an accountability Ior all people to
know that`s not true.
Many DePaul students plan to
participate in Chicago`s SlutWalk
protest on June 4.
'It is never the victim`s Iault.
and the notion that women were
asking Ior it` is exactly what
the victimizers use to explain
their actions. said Ireshman
Andreia Lapsys. who plans on
participating in the Chicago
SlutWalk. Lapsys. a public
relations maior said. 'Girls dress
to attract the attention oI guys.
but so do they. Why should
women be Iorced to change what
they wear?
DePaul Ireshman and political
science maior Angelika Giatras
also plans to attend the upcoming
Chicago march. Giatras said
the Canadian police oIIicer`s
statement was 'completely
ridiculous and added that.
'It reveals the problem oI
stereotyping in society. and such
thinking unIairly places blame on
victims Ior crimes against them.
But not everyone disagreed
with the police oIIicer`s 'slut
remarks which said. 'Women
should avoid dressing like sluts
in order not to be victimized.
according to the Associated Press.
'Honestly. I kind oI agree with
that statement. iI a girl is dressing
promiscuous that obviously
means they want some sort oI
sexual attention. said Alanna
Bagladi. a Ireshman maioring in
digital cinema. 'II they`re going
out to the bars and not looking Ior
sexual relations they shouldn`t be
so suggestive. she said.
Some DePaul students said that
how a woman chooses to dress
doesn`t necessarily have to do
with sexual attention.
'Everyone is entitled to
dress and express their own
sexuality however they please
and should never be shamed Ior
those very personal decisions.
said Melina Lindsey. a iunior
maioring in secondary education.
According to Lindsey. students
'can recognize that what people
choose to do with their bodies is
entirely up to them.
Chicago`s own 'SlutWalk
protest is scheduled to take
place on June 4th. with the walk
assembling at the Thompson
Center Plaza an hour beIore
marching at noon. There will
be live music and entertainment
Iollowed by a social gathering Ior
drinks and conversation on the
patio at Zella. 1938 N. Clybourn
starting around 3:30 p.m. aIter
the walk.
Giatras encouraged students to
participate in the walk. and said.
'The only way you can aIIect
change is to take the time and
eIIort to protest and make your
voice heard.

With the glamour and extravagance oI
the royal wedding over. British taxpayers
must think about the wedding's aItermath
and how much it is going to cost them in
the end.
British taxpayers have been leIt with
security costs. estimated to total at least
$11 million. according to the Associated
However. the increase in tourism and
retail sales are said to have helped boost
the British economy.
'The British expended millions on an
event that drew two billion television
viewers and hundreds oI thousands oI
people to the streets. said Patrick Murphy.
an associate proIessor oI management in
DePaul University's Kellstadt Graduate
School oI Business. 'From a purely
business or economic perspective. it's
important to understand the true meaning
and value oI so many eyeballs coming
together. he said.
'The idea oI tourism doesn't mean
the same thing in today's world as it
did in 1981. when Diana and Charles
were married. Murphy said. 'I don't
think anyone who understands tourism
realistically expected a big spike in
tourists headed to Britain and spending
money. he said.
Charles and Diana`s wedding. in
comparison to William and Kate`s.
was much more grandiose. with more
international travelers. a longer procession
and a close-to three month honeymoon.
The newest royal couple said they were
being mindIul oI the tough economy when
planning the wedding. according to the
Still. the amount oI money spent leIt
some people thinking that it may have
been over the top given the current state
oI the British economy.
'The initial Iixed cost helped ensure
a successIul event that impressed the
world and eIIectively mitigated the
many potential variable costs oI a poorly
executed large event. Murphy said.
'The waste in money is a valid claim.
said Sean Ring. a student at DePaul.
However. Ring said once the security
costs are divied up to taxpayers. the money
doesn't amount to too much.
Murphy said the overall production
oI the wedding is something that Brits
had been looking Iorward to and will
remember Iorever.
'The royal wedding's real return Ior
the British has less to do with tourism
and more to do with the intangible
beneIits associated with the large scale
socialization oI a core element oI British
culture. Murphy said.
'It's very hard Ior an American to
understand it but. Irom the point oI view
oI many British people. the day oI the
royal wedding was a great day to be
British. Murphy said.

"Quran burning continued from cover

via YouTube and Facebook.
'It's sad that it's always the

Kelley, 20, an economics and
religious studies major at DePaul
University. Kelley is also liaison
to the university for Intervaristy,

'I can understand why they

Hamid Karzai announced the
story publicly, calling for the
U.S. government to condemn
Pastor Jones for his offenses
to Islam and the Muslim

been released in the country.
Protesting of the video-taped
burning of the Quran began
on Friday, April 1, in Mazar-i-

Demonstrations spread to other
cities in the country and lasted

However, others sought out
foreign targets, mobbed a UN
compound and killed seven UN
workers and five Afghanis, BBC
News reported.
'The average Afghani gets
their news from people around
them. It's very traditional that
way, said Khalil Marrar, a
political science professor at
DePaul University. 'They're not
really going to understand that
Pastor Jones is a minority in
America and that everyone is not

towards the U.S.'s presence in

is that he sees the actions of

For every college student. there are
worries about whether or not they will get
iob out oI school utilizing their degree. In
the current iob market. things are looking up
Ior unemployed workers. and employment
Ior last year`s DePaul graduates was ahead
oI the national average.
Although uemployment rates in 2010
were the highest in over two decades.
things are expected to be better Ior the

Powers Snowden. by the end oI 2010.
iob postings increased by 37 percent and
internship postings grew by 17 percent.
According to the Career Center. DePaul
is ahead oI the national average Ior
undergraduates becoming employed.
'Thirty percent oI DePaul bachelor`s
degree recipients had Iull-time positions
by the time they graduated in June 2010.
compared to the national average oI 24
percent. Powers Snowden said. 'The 6
percent increase can be attributed to the
skills DePaul students receive Irom careers

'We take pride in getting our graduates

She added. 'DePaul is one oI the highest

Although most students seem pleased
that America`s unemployed are getting

The court Iiling came in response to the Iederal

Supporters cited a provision in the bill that read.

While Arizona`s controversial immigration reIorm
bill may be on hold. its eIIects have rippled across

that would give newIound power to state law

Mazariegos said she believed there can be a Iair and
equal enIorcement oI the law by the Immigration and
Custom EnIorcement. it would be impossible Ior city
and state police oIIicers to do so.
However. not everyone at DePaul shares a similar
opinion. 'I support the Arizona`s SB 1070. said
Connor Wilson. a College oI Commerce maior.
'States should be able to act accordingly to issues
in the state iI the Iederal agency responsible is not
enIorcing the law. Wilson said.
Many supporters oI tougher immigration laws have
said they see the inIlux oI immigrants as an economic
threat. Many people have cited the loss oI American
iobs to low wage workers and made claims that
undocumented immigrants place an immense burden
on the U.S. education and healthcare inIrastructure.
In Texas. there are more illegal immigrants in the
workIorce than unemployed Texans. according to
numbers Irom the U.S. Bureau oI Labor Statistics
and the Pew Hispanic Center. Less than six percent

Brewer said she plans to use private Iunds Ior the
counter-suit. So Iar. the cost oI lawyers deIending SB

'Immigration reIorm was needed long beIore the
Arizona law. said economics proIessor Gabriella
Bucci. who specializes in immigration. According
to Bucci. the Arizona bill is a symptom oI America`s
illegal immigration problem and said. 'but the
problem is longstanding and. sadly. long ignored.

'People went out to

student Sayed El Salamony
with respect to Egypt`s Iirst

Algeria ordered an end

'During good times.
Arab states could have
their governments' sins

subsidies and virtually
bribing the population
into complacency. Marrar
said. 'However the global

The increasing number
oI protests have led some
to worry whether they

Sayed called on students
in the DePaul community to
support the popular protests

"f people don't know they're
there, they won't survive. t's as
simple as that."
Tess Thackara. U.S. Coordinator
at Survival International. the NGO
responsible for publicizing the
photographs and the footage. spoke
with the DePaulia about the storv
behind obtaining the images. about the
importance of widespread awareness
of the tribes existence. and about wavs
students in the U.S. can get involved
in ensuring the survival of this unique
group of people.
Q: Can you tell us how you obtained the
images and who exactly are the people
seen in the footage?
A: This particular tribe has been monitored
Ior almost twenty years by FUNAI. the
National Indian Foundation. Recently.
the group invited BBC to use their high
quality equipment and BBC in turn passed
the Iootage on to Survival in an eIIort to
spread awareness and Ior people to realize
the importance oI protecting these people.
These people are members oI one oI
the last remaining uncontacted tribes
in the world. They are located near the
headwaters oI the Envira River. near the
Brazil/ Peru border. They have had no
peaceIul contact with other tribes and the
mainstream society. That is not to say they
have had absolutely no contact with the
outside world. But so Iar. it`s only been
devastating Ior them.
Q: What are some of the problems
they`re faced with? Do you think
publicizing the photographs and the
footage will have any positive impact on
their situation?
A: Uncontacted tribes around the world
Iace a constant slew oI threats including
encroaching illegal loggers. oil mining and
dam-building amongst others.
II people don't know they're there. they
won't survive. It's as simple as that. In the
responses we have seen to these images
being released. it is very clear that people
around the world care about the survival
oI vulnerable tribal peoples. and we have
seen time and time again that public
opinion is the greatest Iorce Ior change.
Q: But isn`t there a risk involved with
revealing the existence of these people
to the general public?
A: We have to tread a Iine line between
publicizing their existence in order to
help them survive. and conveying the
importance oI letting uncontacted tribes
themselves make the decision to contact
the outside world at their own pace.
And we do not publicize their exact
location. Besides. when you think about
it. the danger oI the tribe not surviving
Iar outweighs the risks involved with
revealing its existence.
Q: Can you tell us what students in the
U.S. can do to help out?
A: I would encourage students to be aware
oI what is going on in the world. Post on
Facebook. tweet it. showcase movies. and
simply talk about it.
You can also sign up to our e-news on
the homepage oI our website. We send out
appeals via our e-news asking people to
sign petitions and write to governments.
But the main thing is Ior students to
spread the word about these issues and
generate as much awareness as possible.
It is not inevitable that all tribal peoples
will eventually be wiped out. II we rally
together a real diIIerence can be made.

NuLIon & WorId
AIter weeks oI violence. Egypt's historic revolution
pushed President Hosni Mubarak to resign Irom his
30-year presidency last Friday.
Fear has spread to the DePaul community. as some
students have said the protests may aIIect their Iuture.
Some Egyptians living away Irom the revolution
have said it is hard to be apart Irom their country
during a time oI chaos.
'When I think oI my Iuture. I don`t know what
I`m going to do. said Egyptian Sayed ElSalamony.
who is studying economics and Iinance at DePaul.
ElSalamony. who is here on a student visa. said he
is worried what state his country will be in when he
returns home.
Mubarak addressed his nation last week in a
televised statement announcing that he would not step
down Irom his presidencydespite three weeks oI
protests calling Ior his resignation. Expectations that
Mubarak was to resign that night led to more violence
revolts in Cairo. The Iollowing day. Vice President
Suleiman announced Mubarak had resigned.
'Psychologically it is aIIecting me. said
ElSalamony. 'I iust can`t see my country Iall apart in
Iront oI my eyes and not be there because I`m here
and not there. and that`s really Irustrating. he said.
'I don`t know what`s going to happen. I don`t
know where the country`s going. or where the
economy is going. where the political side is going.
is it going to go into a better state? That`s what we`re
trying to Iigure out. ElSalamony said.
Prior to Mubarak's resignation. Scott Hibbard said.
'In my personal opinion. the sooner Hosni Mubarak
leaves the better oII Egypt will be. Hibbard. a
political science proIessor at DePaul. said. 'There are
diIIerent ways that can unIold. but he`s really become
the Iace oI the old regime and the Iace oI everything
that`s wrong.
Citizen protests against the old regime erupted on
Jan. 25 when the people demanded Egypt`s economic
situation and government change. Hibbard said that
while getting Mubarak out oI power may be the Iirst
step in Egypt`s revolution. addressing the country`s
economic situation needs to come next.
'I really hope to see a more vibrant economy.
Hibbard said. According to Hibbard. there is an
enormousbut poorly distributedamount oI
wealth in Egypt and in the region. 'What you have
is the absence oI a Iree and open market. and that`s
contributing to mass poverty. Hibbard said.
Egypt`s transition period has been said to be
aIIecting the Arab population as a whole. Faten
Bushehri. a recent DePaul graduate oI Arabic descent
said she believes the Arab community should support
Egypt during this time oI distress.
'Arabs usually tend to stick together and support
each other because it`s one regionand what happens
in one country aIIects the other countries. Bushehri
As an Arab-American. Bushehri said she Ieels
that it is only right that she and others in the Arab
community back Egypt`s revolution in hopes to
spread democracy.
'We`re supporting other countries that are Iighting
Ior their Ireedom. Bushehri said. 'In America it`s all
about democracy and Ireedomand that`s something
that we try to promote to people in other countries. It
would only make sense to support Egyptians to Iight
Ior their Ireedom. With a president who has been in
power Ior nearly thirty years. Busheri said it`s about
While Egypt may be on the road to democracy. they
are still only at the beginning stages oI their iourney.
said Hibbard. But he still has hope Ior the country`s
'At this stage the Iuture is yet to be written he
said. 'Some change will happen. The question is
how much change and how signiIicant. There is a
movement Ior change and I think it is long overdue
Ior the region. Hibbard said.

ers gather at Tahrir square in Cairo, Egypt, Sunday, Jan. 30, 2011, with the ruling National

10 The DePaulia. January 31, 2011
NuLIon & WorId
In the wake oI the Tucson mass
shooting. the maiority oI DePaul
students said gun control laws
should be stricter. according to
a new DePaulia poll.
Many students did not Iavor
the right to bear arms over gun
control. according to the poll.
OI over 100 students who were
surveyed. only 29 percent said
they did not believe gun control
laws should become stricter. These
numbers Iall short to the national
average oI 46 percent oI people who
believe it is more important to protect
the right to bear arms over gun control.
Nationally. 41 percent oI 28-29-year-olds
Iavor the right to bear arms over gun
control. according to the Pew Research
Center (PRC).
The issue over gun control became a hot
topic nation-wide in the aItermath oI Jan.
8`s Tucson shooting which leIt six dead
and Congresswoman Gabrielle GiIIords
with a gunshot wounded in the head.
In Chicago. gun violence is nothing
new to the city. Although Chicago`s
homicide rate was at a 45-year low in
2010. gun violence has still remained
prevalent. On Jan. 26. a bullet was Iound
inside a Chicago elementary school aIter
it allegedly was shot through the window
overnight. According to the Chicago Police
Department. 80 percent oI last year`s 436
homicides were done by Iirearms.
'Chicago sees hundreds oI homicides
and shootings each year. said Ireshman
Caelin NiehoII. a sociology maior. She said
h a n d g u n
restrictions are
important because oI the city`s
high murder rate.
Last June the Supreme Court
struck down Chicago`s 28-year ban on
handguns saying it was unconstitutional.
The new ordinance requires training in the
classroom and Iiring range beIore residents
may apply Ior the $125 Iirearm permit.
Applicants cannot have any previous
convictions oI any violent crimes or have
two or more oIIenses Ior driving under the
inIluence oI drugs or alcohol.
Stephanie Torres. a Ireshman. said
although she Ieels every citizen has a right
to carry a gun. she still believes in stricter
gun laws. Torres. a psychology maior.
said. 'Too many mishaps and tragedies
occur because it is oIten easy to obtain a
gun and get a license Ior it.
In Utah. public colleges and universities
are Iorbidden Irom banning concealed
weapons on campuses. Earlier this month.
the University oI Utah placed a police
and security
guard on paid
administrative leave aIter
leaking an internal memo that
gave guidelines banning the open
carrying oI Iirearms.
Although the shooting oI Gabrielle
GiIIords received national attention.
the nation`s views on gun control have
remained relatively the same. with halI
who prioritize gun control and halI who
prioritize gun rights. to where they were
in Sept. 2010.
According to the PRC. most respondents
saw the Tucson shooting as an isolated
event. About halI as many (31 percent)
said they saw the incident as a reIlection
oI broader problems in American society.
These respondents deIined the 'broader
problems with themes such as as social
climate (27 percent) and the political/
media climate (21 percent).
Ruba Sweis. a Ireshman maioring in
public relations and advertising. said she
w o u l d
Ieel much saIer iI
there were strict handgun regulations.
'However. she added. 'I believe that this
is not the only solution to the problem.
More Americans46 percentwere
likely to see broader social problems
behind the Virginia Tech shootings nearly
Iour years ago than in the Tucson shooting.
NiehoII said that as a sociology student.
she recognizes that even with handgun
restrictions in Illinois. death and shootings
are still a problem. 'We are called to
question the root oI gun problems and why
they remain a problem. NiehoII said.

10 The DePaulia. January 24, 2011
NuLIon & WorId
BeIore last Wednesday. I had only
seen neighborhoods like Merida`s
Emiliano Zapata Sur in books. in
movies. on television. and through the
bus window. I wasn`t sure what to expect
when my group members and I stepped
oII the bus in Iront oI Marista University
on the south side oI the city. where we
would be taking our service-learning
course and volunteering with the local
I had to dodge a decomposing cat
in the gutter beIore stepping onto
the sidewalk (not the greatest initial
observation. but hey. dead cats aren`t
exclusive to the developing world).
We began our assigned neighborhood
promenade hesitantly. Ieeling more like
a conspicuous imposition than a group oI
humble college students.
There was an eerie silence in the
streets. and the smell oI incinerated
garbage hung in the air there is very
limited trash collection in Emiliano
Zapata Sur. so residents burn their waste
As we walked beside a row oI
windowless homes. most oI which
were made oI cement and rooIed with
scrap metal. I was careIul to look inside
without catching the eyes oI inhabitants.
Most oI the houses appeared to be
single rooms with unIinished Iloors.
There was music emanating Irom many
oI them. and Iew times I heard the low
murmur oI a television set. Towels were
draped here and there to keep the bugs
out. and cinderblocks served as stairs
on most porches. Occasionally. a house
would be painted. usually a bright hue
similar to those in neighborhoods on the
north side.
It was impossible to avoid eye
contact with the residents in their yards
or sitting in doorways. I don`t know
why I Ielt like I should I suppose I
Ielt pretty voyeuristic wandering down
the street with a notebook in hand. It
seemed wrong to walk in Iront oI them
wearing new clothes and a backpack
with a laptop computer inside. II I lived
in Emiliano Zapata Sur. I`m quite sure
I would resent the people who walked
through observing my poverty.
Despite my apparent discomIort. the
people oI Emiliano Zapata Sur were
welcoming; they smiled. waved and
nearly all oI them greeted us with EXHQDV
WDUGHV. They were outside hanging
laundry on their clotheslines. inside
cooking on their stovetops. or arriving
home Irom work.
Children played outside. laughing
the same way children laugh behind
white picket Iences in the United States.
On porches. teenage girls painted their
toenails and mothers rocked their babies
to sleep next to large shrines to the
Virgin Guadalupe. Small Iamily-owned
WLHQGDV sold cold drinks and snacks. and
the neighborhood dogs ran and chased
one another harmlessly in the streets.
The people oI Emiliano Zapata Sur
weren`t angry we were there. at least not
noticeably. They didn`t scoII at the large
group oI JULQJRV walking on their turI.
and I never heard one catcall.
They were iust people. Regular.
Iriendly. hospitable people doing
the same things that regular. Iriendly.
hospitable people do in my own
neighborhood at home. And suddenly. I
Ielt very much at ease.
nLerneL surpusses TV us muIn news source Ior voung uduILs
Two years ago the Internet surpassed
newspapers as the main news source
Ior Americans. Although television`s
popularity remained higher than
Internet. its numbers quickly began to
Iall. And now. the Internet has surpassed
television as a main news source Ior
young adults.
According to a national survey
conducted by the Pew Research Center
(PRC). since 2007. the number oI 18
to 29-year-olds citing the Internet as
their main news source Ior national and
international news has nearly doubled
to 65 percent. Over this time period. the
numbers oI those who said television
was their prime news source dropped to
52 percent.
'TV network news demographics
have been changing Ior years. said
iournalism proIessor. Mike Reilley.
'Viewers are getting older and liIestyle
and technology changes have impacted
viewership oI the 5:30 p.m. news.
However. television news is still
dominates among less educated young
people. According to the PRC. iust 29
percent oI those with no more than a
high school education cited the Internet
as their main news source. while
three-quarters oI the respondents cited
While Reilley said the Pew study
didn`t surprise him. he said. 'it does

including TV news.
Ricky Green. a senior Iinance student
said he gets his news Irom iGoogle.
. 'Users are able to personalize their
Google homepage by customizing their
news preIerence. Green said. 'I can put
in all the big news websites onto one
page with the top Iive to IiIteen stories
Irom each website into my Ieed.
With more and more young adults
turning to the Internet Ior their news.
many are beginning to wonder what is
to come Ior broadcast news.
'As someone who grew up watching
Walter Cronkite on network news
as well as local evening and night
newscasts. I`m disappointed to see
the sea change. Reilley said. 'I think
we are a smarter. better-served news
consumer when we draw inIormation
Irom multiple platIorms. Reilley said
making reIerence to what he called. 'the
depth oI newspapers. the immediacy
oI TV and radio. and the multimedia
aspects oI online storytelling.
Andrew TreIIy. a recent DePaul
English graduate said he is convinced
that television will Iind a way to evolve to
the rapidly changing media. 'Television
still has somewhat oI a chance to utilize
the medium oI the Internet through
Internet viral marketing and such.
Most news networks have done so
by working with the Internet by taking
advantage and utilizing various Iorms
oI social media to break news stories.
'News networks are well aware oI the
shiIt. It`s most likely that they`re going
to work with. and adapt to the change in
media source. rather than Iight against
it. said TreIIy.
Many young adults
say the Internet makes
it convenient Ior those
always on the go to
check their news on
their smart phones.

'Most people have

It makes it easier
to access the news
because college kids
are on the go. and
like. don`t have time
to sit and watch
television. she said.
Senior Iinance
student Green
agreed with Andreoli.
'I don`t watch
television Ior any
news. other than to
turn on ESPN.

Reilley said stories will
always need to be told on
its medium. 'I think there
will always be a place Ior TV

Meyer said she anticipated a great divide

'I expected there to be a lot oI poverty
and a lot oI rich people. I didn`t expect
there to be such a strong middle class.
Meyer said.
While Kenya is estimated to have a

learned that people who lack money can

'The way I relate to organizations has
changed because oI this experience. said
Meyer. 'There are ways to put money
directly into the hands oI the people who
will be using it. I want to make sure
when I give money or time I want it to go
directly to the community rather than a

'There`s a diIIerent world outside oI

good aIternoon and good night without
wondering iI I said something wrong.
and even when I`m on the phone with
Iriends and Iamily in the States I Iind
myselI accidentally saying. 'si instead
oI 'yes. and 'porque instead oI
I`m able to get Irom point A to point
B with relative assurance using the bus
system. I know how to ask someone
Ior help iI I get lost. and I know
how many pesos a Corona costs on
Thursday nights at El Cumbanchero.
the local salsa bar.
I know that when you`re hot. you
always want to say you`re calor.
not caliente. (unless you are in
Iact caliente. which probably isn`t
something you want to advertise on
the street). I know that the Yucatecan
culinary special. 'Pollo Pibil. is a sure
bet at most restaurants. and that iI you
are an easily-oIIended young American
Iemale who doesn`t take well to being
ceaselessly ogled by the locals. this
probably isn`t the place Ior you.
On the list oI quagmires I have yet
to solve is Iiguring out a polite way
to tell my host mother that there is no
hot water in my bathroom. that there
is a colony oI possibly carnivorous
ants living in my bedroom. or that I
would like a little more than rice and
lettuce Ior dinner sometimes. (Dinners
are quite small here across the board;
lunch is the main event in most oI
Latin America and Spain).
Speaking oI my host mother--
her name is Maria Lucia. and she
is the nicest. most helpIul Mexican
woman that I have met thus Iar in
Merida. She is patient with me as we
attempt to converse in Spanish over
breakIast at 6:30 a.m.. she gives me
directions everywhere I need to go.
andchanneling the spirit oI my real
mothershe will not let me leave the
house iI my shorts are too corto (Take
a guess at that one).
Maria Lucia has three grown
children who live here with her
Pricilla. Patricio. and Paulina. In
this culture. it is customary to live at
home until you marry. Pricilla works
Ior a company based in Boston that
sells travel packages to American and
Canadian universities sending students
abroad. I see her the most out oI all
my host siblings. and she speaks Iluent
English because oI her work.
Patricio recently graduated Irom
a local university. where he studied
marketing. He is currently tirelessly
looking Ior work. yet he always
enough Iree time to tell me where all
the best discotecas are (and appears to
Irequent them nightly).
I see Paulina the least out oI the
threeshe leaves Ior work beIore I
wake in the mornings. and retreats
upstairs beIore I have time to talk
with her any other time oI the day. It
seems that Maria Lucia. as my primary
caretaker. is the only one who takes
much notice oI me. I can hardly blame
the kids Ior their lack oI interest in
attempting to speak Spanish with me
the Iamily has been hosting students
Irom the U.S. and Canada Ior over
IiIteen years.
As my second week in Merida
draws to a close. I can already tell
that the most diIIicult task Iacing me
on this trip will not be learning the
language or writing ten-page papers Ior
my classes. but rather. deciding which
oI the hundreds oI exciting activities
oIIered to visitors oI the Yucatan I can
squeeze into ten short weeks.
Although the recession has oIIicially been declared to be over.
many students have said it changed their lives in ways they still
continue to experience.
College tuition is increasing at a Iaster rate compared to
Iamily income. While the median household income in the U.S.
Iell by 4.2 percent over the course oI the recession. DePaul
University`s tuition increased by nearly 6 percent.
'LiIe is tough now. said Nikol Gabrisakova. a Ireshman
maioring in psychology who said she Ieels the recession has
changed her liIe tremendously. AIter spending months looking
Ior a iob. Gabrisakova said it is hard to Iind a iob even at a store.
'I Ieel guilty asking my parents Ior money because my mom lost
her iob and my dad`s business is not prospering like it was beIore
the recession.
During the recession. employment oI students enrolled in
colleges Iull-time dropped by 20 percent. while part-time student
employment Iell by 7 percent. According to the U.S. Bureau oI
Labor Statistics. during this time the gap between Iemale college
students who were more likely to be in the labor Iorce than their
male counterparts continued to grow.
Gabrisakova`s decision to come to DePaul was due in large
part to its relative inexpensiveness and her desire to attend a
maior university.
'I decided to come to DePaul because it was my cheapest
option and one oI my top schools. Luckily. I qualiIied Ior
Iinancial aid because oI my parents` Iinancial situation. I did
not want to go to a community college because school is very
important due to the competitiveness with the iob market.
According to the National Center Ior Education Statistics.
during the Iirst year oI the recession. roughly 66 percent oI
undergraduates received Iinancial aid.
Gabrisakova is also Iinancially aware when it comes to
where she lives. choosing to live oII campus to save money.
Nevertheless. she is still worried about paying oII student loans
in the Iuture.
Many students have said their spending habits changed as a
result oI the recession.
'Money is tight and I need to save it so I can pay oII my
loans. said Karishma Riman. a Ireshman maioring in biology.
'Due to the changes I do not go shopping as oIten because I am
saving money Ior everyday necessities. said Riman who now
spends more time cooking dinner at home instead oI going out on
weekends. Riman said the recession changed her driving habits
and that she only drives when absolutely necessary because oI
the high gas prices.
Stephanie Kopalski. a sophomore maioring in history. also
Iaces the challenges oI the recession. 'I have to watch my
spending a lot more. It used to be easier to iust spend money
on random things. but now I have to really ask myselI iI I need
certain things.
Some students such as Kopalski went to community college
beIore enrolling at DePaul as a way to save money.
'My Iamily and Iriends are the same way. Kopalski said.
'BeIore I came to DePaul. I attended a community college
because I wanted to save money.
When Martin Bednarczyk`s Iather lost his iob he did not
let it stop him Irom coming to DePaul. 'I still went to college
because I knew how important it was Ior Iuture success.
Bednarczyk said. Now a Ireshman with an undecided maior. he
said. 'I wanted to maior in business. but due to the recession I am
questioning my choice.
Although Bednarczyk is now questioning his maior as a result
oI the recession. he said that his liIe didn`t change too much and
added. 'I still go out and have Iun.

La Decepcion y las

tiempo por muchos medicos
cuando necesitaban curar

como el eIecto placebo.

investigacion sugiere que

Nation & World Editor
Illinois has been called the 'wild
west because oI its unregulated politi-
cal campaigns that escalated to unIair ad-
vantages and domination Ior the highly
sponsored political parties. However. the
New Year began with a new set oI laws
in Illinois that will limit the amount oI
money that can be contributed to politi-
cal candidates and political action com-
This is a good frst step Ior less cor-
ruption in Ill.. said political science pro-
Iessor Zachary Cook. 'The law might
help protect honest businesses Irom be-
ing pressured by political fgures to give
them signifcant contributions in the
Iorms oI bribes. Cook said. Although
the law will be very relevant to candi-
dates running Ior governor. Cook said.
the law may have little impact on up-
coming elections because the contribu-
tion limits are still relatively high Ior a
During the 2005-2006 elections. Rod
Blagoievich`s campaign collected $18
million and his opponent. Judy Topinka.
collected $9.5 million. The new law
comes aIter Blagoievich's arrest. im-
peachment and indictment on block-
buster government corruption charges.
During Blagoievich`s era. Illinois was
one oI fve states in which there were no
boundaries Ior political contributions.
Contributions to all candidates by
individuals have now been limited to a
maximum oI $5.000 per election. Busi-
nesses and associations are limited to
$10.000 per candidate and political ac-
tion committees are limited to no more
than $50.000 per candidate. The impact
oI this limitation oI money contributed
to political candidates will be assessed
to determine Iuture precautions and re-
quirements Ior elections.
Bruce Newman. a DePaul proIessor
who specializes in political marketing.
said the new law will level the playing
feld to give those that do not receive
signifcant amounts oI money a Iair op-
portunity to compete in elections. This
will encourage the political candidates
to Iollow the 'Obama motto oI using
the Internet to collect contributions. he
said. According to Newman. this method
will enable political candidates to col-
lect money Irom more people rather than
collecting a signifcant amount oI money
Irom iust one organization.
'This law will aIIect political parties
because the candidates will not rely on
one organization Ior support and will
gain support Irom the people. Newman
Michael Evers. a iunior at DePaul
University maioring in political sci-
ence. worked on Obama`s campaign in
Cincinnati. Ohio. His perception oI
Illinois beIore coming here was
that it was not the cleanest
state in sense oI poli-
tics. 'This law would
be benefcial Ior the
voters because the
people. rather than
businesses and as-
sociations. would
gain more
interest on
the politi-
cal candi-
d a t e s .
Evers said.
G o v e r n o r
Patrick Quinn
signed the new legislation
into law on Dec. 9. Candi-
dates will be required to
fle campaign ex-
penditure and
reports every
three months
instead oI every
six months.

I hadn`t Ielt such a puzzling

since leaving Greeley. Colorado Ior
DePaul a year and a halI ago. I was
trying hard to Iocus on the essentials
check bags. get boarding pass. don`t

increasingly diIIicult due to the non-

through my head. What iI all oI my

by a blanket oI warm. Iresh. humid
air. There`s nothing quite like your
Iirst breath in the tropics. My clothes
immediately Ielt too heavy and every
odor in my surroundings was enhanced.
My skin Ielt moist all over and I couldn`t
imagine ever applying lotion again.
Even at night. the colors oI the
city were stunning. The term 'concrete

it was truly an urban rainIorest. I didn`t
realize how accustomed I was to neutral

and lime green were commonplace.
Despite the Ioreign nature oI the
architecture and landscape. many
buildings were adorned with Christmas
decorations and a giant Christmas tree
was situated in the center oI el Paseo de
Monteio. Merida`s main street.
I slept like a rock when we got back
to the hotel. and woke up this morning
eager to see Merida in the daylight.

la historia de Brasil el 1 de
Su presidencia ha sido un

Despues de ser iniciada en
las politicas del marxismo.
RousseII ayudo a construir
una de las tantas organizacio-
nes guerrilleras tratando de

'Si. una muier puede ser
presidente. diio poco despues
de ser elegido presidente.
RousseII hablo en contra de

I am gay.
These three words have changed
the liIe and career oI West Point
Academy graduate. Iraq veteran
and Arabic linguist Lt. Dan Choi.
Choi. 28. spoke to a crowd oI
DePaul students. Iaculty. and
neighbors on Oct. 25 about being
openly gay in the Army and the
repercussions oI being honest.
Choi is among the 14.000 ser-
vicemen and women who have
been fred under the Don`t Ask.
Don`t Tell policy that President
Obama has promised to repeal.
'When I Iell in love Ior the frst

Don`t Ask Don`t Tell. Choi said.
Created in 1993. Don`t Ask.
Don`t Tell (DADT) mandates the
discharge oI openly gay. lesbian
and bisexual service members.
Under this law. a service member
can be discharged iI they make
their sexual orientation known.
According to the Congressional
Research Service. a third party
can 'out a service member iI he
does so under oath.
Choi came out on MSNBC`s
'The Rachel Maddow Show
on March 19. 2009. The Army
then discharged him. as he was in
violation oI DADT by making a
public announcement oI his ho-
mosexuality. Here. Choi had two
choices: he could accept his ter-
mination and receive an 'honor-
able discharge. or fght it and re-
ceive a 'dishonorable discharge.
He chose to fght.
'II we want to have anything as
oppressed people. we should nev-
er wait. said Choi. He said that
aIter Obama was elected. the gay
community was told to wait. and
that they were creating confict.
'We didn`t start the confict.
Choi said. 'The confict is already
there when you cannot donate
blood. adopt children or get mar-
One oI the reasons DADT was
originally enacted was to ensure
'unit cohesion. However an arti-
cle in The National DeIense Uni-
versity Press. 'The Joint Force
Quarterly reads. 'aIter a careIul
examination. there is no scientifc
evidence to support the claim that
unit cohesion will be negatively

'I don`t know what the hell unit
cohesion is. Choi said. He said
some people believe the idea oI
showering together could create
'Why are you aIraid oI gay peo-
ple in the shower? You iust came
back Irom Iraq. he said.
According to Servicemembers

largely don't care about whether
someone is gay or not and they
do not link iob perIormance with
sexual orientation.
DePaul neighbors Jon Porter.
21. and Annie Salazar. 22. heard
about the event through Face-
book. Salazar said she came to the
event to be more involved in the
gay rights movement. and Porter
wanted to continue his involve-
'I`m very active in fghting Ior
equality Ior all. Porter said. He
said he Iollows Choi in his media
presence. as Choi is 'the Iace oI

Throughout his speech. Choi
encouraged his listeners to take
action in their lives and commu-
He said there are two types oI
homophobic people: the loud ho-
mophobes who shroud words in
religion and television. and the si-
lent homophobes that are the by-
standers in Iraternities and sports
teams that hear 'that`s so gay
and don`t say anything. Loud or
silent. the result is the same. Choi
Choi said that everyone should
be active when they witness
seemingly innocent acts like this.
Freshman psychology student
Rebecca Matras said. 'I will be
defnitely more vocal about my
opinions aIter hearing Lt. Choi
During his speech. Choi had the
audience stand up and say 'I am
somebody over and over. He
said this was not Ior the people
who were saying it. but so some-
one else could hear them say it
and Ieel like they were somebody
Last week`s midterm elections
proved challenging to gay-rights
activists like Choi. Congress lost
a Iew key supporters oI gay mar-
riage and the GOP gained control
oI the House oI Representatives
with what Joe Solmonese. presi-
dent oI the Human Rights Cam-
paign said is 'a track record oI
opposing gay-rights initiatives.
Choi said he shows no loyalty
to any particular political party.
though gay-rights activists are
traditionally Democrat.
'I was born gay. I wasn`t born
Democrat. Choi said.
An article in the HuIfngton Post
said that this anger at the lack oI
progress in DADT has caused
some people who usually vote
Democrat to change or withhold
their vote.
'II you don`t think you`re liv-
ing history. you need to wake up.
Choi said.

Political heat between the De-
Paul College Republicans and
Democrats arose on Oct. 28 when
they debated the Bush tax cuts.
the Arizona immigration law. and
Obama`s stimulus package.
The expansion oI the Bush Tax
Cuts was debated by Kevin Crit-
tenden. a DePaul College Repub-
lican (DCR) member. and Robert
Foley. the political director oI De-
Paul College Democrats (DCD).
Crittenden. who was in Iavor oI
the expansion. said small busi-
nesses will decrease fnancially by
18 percent iI the top two percent
oI the upper income bracket is
taxed. 'Raising taxes now won`t
be a good idea Ior business. Crit-
tenden said.
Foley did not agree. 'The Bush
tax cuts should expire. he said
aIter claiming that they add to
the defcit. Foley argued that with
higher taxes. Iormer President
Clinton created 22 million iobs
while Iormer Iormer President
George W. Bush only created
three million iobs with tax cuts.
Eric Tamerlani (DCD) took on
Arizona`s immigration enIorce-
ment law. SB1070. He said it is in
violation oI the Constitution and
will require U.S. citizens to show
documents oI citizenship. AIter
saying that the law does not ap-
ply to Mexicans and that the prob-
lem is in Mexico. Tamerlani said.
'The drug cartels in Mexico are
the reason why Mexicans come to
However. while violence along
the border has signifcantly in-
creased in sight oI the drug war.
data collected by the Pew Hispan-
ic Center revealed that illegal im-
migration has actually decreased
by 65 percent since President Fe-
lipe Calderon declared Mexico to
be in a drug war in 2004.
In Iavor oI the law. Dan Dunham
(DCR) said the Arizona State Law
re-illustrates Iederal law that gives
local powers to local authorities.
According to Dunham. the contro-
versy over SB1070 is an issue oI
local authorities not being able to
make their own decisions over the
matter. Durham asked. 'Are you
in Iavor oI enIorcing America`s
laws or not?
According to the Immigration
Policy Center. SB1070 requires
state and local law enIorcement
agencies to check the immigration
status oI individuals it encounters
and makes it a state crime Ior non-
citizens to Iail to carry proper im-
migration documentation.
Obama`s stimulus package was
debated by Brandon Weichert
(DCR) and David Ellis (DCD).
Ellis said the Recovery Act saved
millions oI iobs and gave a lot oI
money to Chicago public schools.
Weichert. on the other hand. said
'Spending more money that we
already spent is not working. II we
do not stop spending. we will be in
an economic hole.

When ignorance isn't bliss
"DePaul is a faith-based university that believes that re-
ligion can play a powerful role in
a person's life, said the president
of DePaul University, Rev. Den-
nis Holtschneider. With a large number of Americans who
do not know basic religion facts, many have questioned
America's lack of religious world knowledge stirs a debate
on whether religion should be taught in public schools
The average American doesn`t know basic Iacts about world reli-
gion. according to a recent Pew Research Center survey. America`s
lack oI religious knowledge has led many to question whether world
religions should be taught as obiective. academic inquiries in public
According to the Pew Research Center (PRC). Americans were
able to correctly answer 50 percent oI basic questions about a num-
ber oI Iaith traditions. About halI oI those surveyed knew the
Koran is the Islamic holy book. that the D a l a i
Lama is Buddhist. and that the golden
rule is not one oI the Ten Command-
ments. On questions pertaining to
the Bible and Christianity. Jewish
people scored the highest while
Catholics Iared the worst.
Overall. only halI oI Chris-
tians were able to correctly
answer questions pertaining
to their Iaith. Only 23 percent
oI those surveyed knew that
public school teachers can
read Irom the Bible as an ex-
ample oI literature.
America`s lack oI religious
knowledge goes hand-in-hand
with a separate PRC study that
revealed the U.S. is the world's
most religious industrialized nation.
According to the Sept. 28 report.
nearly six-in-ten American adults
say religion is "very important" in their
The PRC report was not the only instance
when concern over Americans` religious knowledge
has arisen.
The Chicago Council oI Global AIIairs (CCGA) released a report
earlier this year that said 'all too oIten. Western powers Iail to appre-
ciate the consequences oI many international conficts because the
religious resonance is so poorly understood. 'However. Americans
can also employ religion in a way that is irresponsible. wrong. and
can escalate tensions. the report said.
Claiming that a narrow view oI religion will no longer suIfce. the
report said that religion must be seen as a social reality that shapes
and is shaped by violent confict and war. globalization. and democ-
Fr. Anthony Dosen. a priest and education proIessor at DePaul said
he advocates a more comprehensive education oI world religions
and Christianity because diIIerent belieI systems impact how we do
things. 'We make decisions on Ioreign policy with no clue to what
is going on religiously in some oI these countries. Dosen said. Such
misunderstanding can ignite a powder keg oI issues. he said.
At DePaul University. undergraduate students are required to take
at least two religion classes in the domains oI Religion and Ethical
Questions and Religious Traditions. Although it is the nation`s larg-
est Catholic university. the courses oIIered explore many diIIerent
religions and perspectives.
Fr. Holtschneider. said that Irom his point oI view there are two
reasons that DePaul students are required to take these religious
classes. 'There is barely a day when the New York Times does not
carry a story about a place or an issue in the world in which religions
play a role. he said. 'To be an active member oI our world. one
must understand the great religions oI the world.
'DePaul is a Iaith-based university that believes that religion can
play a powerIul role in a person`s liIe. Fr. Holtschneider said. 'Our
religious studies courses do not attempt to convert students. but
they do oIIer an intellectual and adult study oI religion in a way
that enables students to understand these great Iaiths Irom the inside
perspective oI those who practice them and fnd them a source oI
With similar reasons to why DePaul embeds religion classes
into its curriculum. many students and Iaculty members have said
world religions should also be obiectively taught in public high
The president oI the DePaul Alliance Ior Free Thought. Brandi
Stepp. a senior. said that it is important to understand how religious
policy aIIects social issues. 'In a world where we are continuously
fghting over LGBT equality and sex education. people should
understand the role that churches can play in said de-
bates. she said.
The DePaul Chair oI Religious
Studies. James Halstead. said
public high schools should teach
about diIIerent religions. 'II a
high school curriculum stud-
ies people. the student ought to
learn about the stories. rituals.
belieIs. and values by which
people live. and Ior which
people are willing to die.
While devotional Bible
study is prohibited in public
schools. many teachers will use
it as a piece oI literature when
teaching in the classroom. The
Bible is taught in 43 states. ac-
cording to the Bible Literacy
Proiect. which publishes The
Bible and Its Infuence. a student
textbook designed Ior public school
courses on the Bible. Such states. how-
ever. are not required to oIIer comparative
religious classes or study oI other religions.
and many do not provide other oIIerings to Jew-
ish. Muslim. and students Irom other religious backgrounds.
This Iall. Oklahoma implemented HB 2321. a law encouraging
public school districts to oIIer Bible literacy courses. Georgia. South
Carolina. Tennessee. and Texas all have laws that call Ior Bible lit-
eracy in public schools.
BeIore he was a student at DePaul. digital cinema maior Samuel
McClure said he took a Bible literacy class in high school which read
texts in the Bible and analyzed them as literature. 'II a discussion
started up in class on literature having to do with religious belieIs.
my teacher would reIuse to respond to such questions. According
to McClure. his school did not oIIer any other classes on religious
Although the Supreme Court oIten fnds it permissible to teach the
Bible as literature in public schools. some Bible study programs that
school districts have instituted have been Iound unconstitutional.
Judges have Irequently concluded that these courses are disguised
eIIorts to teach a particular understanding oI the New Testament.
For a public school class to study the Bible without violating the
Constitution. the class has to include critical rather than devotional
readings that allow open inquiry into the history and content oI bibli-
cal passages.
II it`s true that knowledge dispels Iear. then teaching about reli-
gions in public high schools could not hurt. said Attorney David Ly-
sik. a visiting proIessor oI religious studies. Doing so could have an
impact on the day-to-day relations with members oI non-maiority
religions in this country. such as between U.S. Christians and U.S.
Muslims. he said.
Many DePaul proIessors have said that teaching about religions in
public schools could potentially bring Iorth issues.
Fr. Dosen said that teaching about diIIerent religions in public
schools 'becomes a slippery slope due to the Iact that each teacher
will talk about the subiect out oI their own experience. and added.
'When does it become indoctrination?
Teaching about religion in public schools should be an elective and
only done iI the school has the resources to do it. Lysik said. 'Public
schools have a lot oI other material that they need to put in their cur-
riculum and material that students need to learn in order to become
successIul members oI our society. he said.
'An obiective. scientifc. academic study oI particular religions is
the only approach Ior a public school to take iI it desires to have
courses that deal with religion. said Lysik.
Teaching religion in public schools has been criticized in the past
Ior discriminating against atheist students. However. citing the PRC
report that revealed atheists and agnostics knew the most about re-
ligion than other religious groups. Stepp said. 'Having these articu-
late. inIormed students in the classrooms would make Ior an intel-
lectually challenging experience Ior all involved.
'It would do young people good to understand that everything.
even their most deeply held belieIs. should be up Ior examina-
tion and questioning. Stepp said. 'Such a challenging experience
leads to a more thoughtIul populace.

10 The DePaulia. October 4, 2010
'Mancession is the new nickname being
thrown around for the recession that began
in 2007. The nickname stems from the vic-
tims of job loss in the recession-mostly
Men account for 75 percent of the labor
market that have lost jobs since 2007, ac-
cording to a 2009 report by the U.S. Bu-
reau of Labor Statistics. Most of those jobs
lost had been in felds such as manufactur-
ing and construction.
This year, for the frst time in American
history, women make up a majority of the
workforce in highly paid managerial and
professional positions, holding down the
felds at 51.4 percent, according to the U.S.
Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Over a fve-month time period in 2008,
nearly 700,000 American men lost their
jobs while women gained close to 300,000
jobs, according to the Bureau of Labor
Statistics. While only 3 percent of the For-
tune 500 CEO list were women, last year
female CEOs out-earned their male coun-
terparts by 43 percent and on average, re-
ceived bigger pay raises.
According to the James Chung of Reach
Advisers, who spent over fve years ana-
lyzing data from the Census Bureau`s
American Community Survey, in 147 of
the 150 biggest U.S. cities, the median
full-time salaries of young women are
eight percent higher than those of men in
their age group. In Atlanta and Memphis,
young women are making about 20 percent
more. In New York City, Los Angeles and
San Diego, they are earning roughly 15
percent more than young males. However,
this only holds true for childless, unmar-
ried women under 30.
The study found that the cities where
young women were out-earning men were
in places that either had primary local in-
dustries that were knowledge-based or
were manufacturing towns where indus-
tries had shrunk. Cities where men out-
earned young women were places that
tended to be built around industries that
were heavily male-dominated, such as mil-
itary-technology or software development.
Of the 15 jobs that are projected to grow
over the next decade, men are the major-
ity in two of them: janitors and computer
engineers. Women dominate the remaining
13 in jobs such as nursing or childcare.
'We need to look at how we are raising
our sons and daughters, said Chicagoan
Veronica Arreola who runs the blog, Viva
La Feminista. With most of the fastest
growing jobs in nurturing professions,
Arreola said, 'If we are we telling them
that only women are caretakers, then only
women will go into nursing. We need to
get to the point where male nurses are re-
spected as much as male doctors.
While not all of these jobs are essentially
high paying, they can lead towards a steady
accumulation of working women.
But not all believe this is good economi-
cally. 'Who said that being a home health
assistant is a good job? It is a very low pay-
ing job, said Dr. Claudia Goldin, the di-
rector of the American Economy program
at the National Bureau of Economic Re-
search, 'Just because a sector is growing
does not mean that it has lucrative jobs.
While women have surpassed men in the
workforce as a whole, in some felds their
numbers are declining. In fnance, 2.6 per-
cent of women have disappeared from the
industry while men have grown by 9.6 per-
cent, fnds the U.S. Bureau of Labor Sta-
At the same time that blue-collar jobs his-
torically done by men are becoming hard
to fnd, higher education is being dominat-
ed by women. This is giving way to a new
dynamic in the white-collar workforce.
Thirty years have passed since women
started to receive more bachelor`s degrees
then men. Since then, the gender gap in
college enrollment has continued to grow.
At DePaul University, only 41 percent of
last year`s entering freshman class were
'We were just held back for so long, it was
a pressure building up, said Arreola. 'On
some level, women know that they need
this college degree to even survive in this
economy, said Arreola.
As the proportion of male and female col-
lege enrollment continues to grow, instanc-
es of an affrmative action-type method
have quietly begun to spring up. Several
schools such as the University of North
Carolina at Chapel Hill have asked if it is
time to institute affrmative action for men.
Being male raises the chance of college
acceptance by 6.5 to 9 percentage points in
selective liberal-arts schools, found econo-
mists Sandy Baum and Eban Goodstein in
a 2003 study.
In December, the U.S. Commission on
Civil Rights said it would investigate
whether some colleges were discriminat-
ing against women in admissions by ad-
mitting males at a higher rate or by offer-
ing them more generous aid packages.
Title IX of the Education Amendments
of 1972 bars gender discrimination in all
education programs at institutions receiv-
ing federal funds. But this does not apply
to private institutions.
In a 2006 Op-Ed piece to The New York
Times, Jennifer Delajunty Britz, who was
on the board of the admission committee at
Kenyon College, confessed that qualifed
female applicants were given hesitation
in the admittance process based on their
gender alone. When recalling a women
applicant that was over-qualifed in every
realm except her middle-of-the-pool test
scores, Britz wrote, 'We had to have a
debate before we decided to swallow the
middling scores and write 'admit next to
her name. Had she been a male applicant,
there would have been little, if any, hesita-
tion to admit.
'Rest assured that admissions offcers are
not cavalier in making their decisions,
wrote Britz.
The growing gender gap in college enroll-
ment has led many to speculate what is to
come next in the workforce.
'Women will go into jobs that require a
college education and fewer men will be
able to, said Goldin. 'But there is a lot
of retooling and retraining that goes on.
Males mature later and many will realize
at age 40 that they need better tools.
American women are now the breadwin-
ners or co-breadwinners in two thirds of
American households. In a survey con-
ducted by The New York Times, when jobs
are scarce, 85 percent of people polled in
the U.S. believe that men should not get
priority for jobs.
'Part of my Christian upbringing in a pre-
dominantly Christian nation is that God
is the head of man and man is the head of
the household, said Mustafaa El-Scari, a
program specialist for the Administration
for Children and Families. 'There are very
few men in the nation that can ask their
wives to stay at home because they don`t
have the fnancial resources to do so.
'The lines have been blurred over jobs
that are supposed to be for men and sup-
posed to be for women, said El-Scari who
heads support groups for men that are late
or delinquent on child support payments.
Since 2008, El-Scari said his support
groups for men have seen a dramatic in-
crease in enrollment.
The recession has made stay-at-home
dads a reality, said Arreola. 'Hopefully in
the future, men will know they have the
choice to stay at home or work. With the
increase of women in the workforce, they
will also know that they have that option.
With a country composed of a growing
male population who do not hold college
degrees, and a recession that has dimin-
ished many blue-collar jobs, people are
beginning to speculate what is to come for
the American workforce.

"Pope's apology" continued from cover
bring the church`s reputation back to a more positive
outlook without solving the problem.
But not all believe the pope`s apology wasn`t genuine.
'Pope Benedict XVI took a stance of repentance and
remorse, said Cassarella. Having met the pope multiple
times throughout his career, Dr. Cassarella said he knows
the pope`s theology and shares the same idea of the church
always being in reform.
Roberto Francsco Oscr Valentn, a freshman education
major who identifies himself as a Roman Catholic, said, 'I
think it is an admiral act of the pope to have apologized for
the clergy`s actions, said Oscr. 'I believe, as a Catholic
university under the papacy, DePaul should accept the
Pope`s apology and admire his goal for better relations
with people and the church.
'It`s not like I am not going to accept the pope`s apology,
because he is just recognizing the problem and offering
his condolences for the actions of the clergy, said Kiara
Harden, a junior majoring in biology. 'However, I think
the apology should be coming from the offenders, and the
pope`s apology does not right the wrong.
'I don`t accept the pope`s apology because the pope is
being used as a scapegoat, said freshman digital cinema
production major Sarah Jeanne Perry. 'The person who
committed the crime should be the one to apologize-
not the pope. After committing a crime like that, that
clergyman should not be affiliated with the Church.
