The Volume VI, Issue 2 September 3, 1996 New Face Sociology by Nicole Ganzekaufer 1n Born in T e pic Mexico the new addi tion to the Social Sciences Division Sarah Hernandez has a different perspective Raised as a Quaker in a predominantly Roman Catholic town Hernandez lived a very different life from her neighbors but it was her religion that brought her to America Hernandez spent a y e ar o f high school at a small Quaker boarding scho o l in Iowa and returned to Mexico to complete her high school education "In Mexico we have a very traditional educational sy tern After you finish high school you have to figure out your major," she said. So when the opportu nity arose for me to come back to the U .S. to study in a Quaker college, I de cided to go." Hernandez spent her und e r g r a du ate years in Earlham College I wasn t sure what I wanted to study so it was very ap pealing to me to go to liberal arts college that would allow me to explore a little more," she said. It was during her undergraduate years that Hernandez found her interest in teaching.

Something is brewing under the silent exterior of the old building Coffee? Not yet. But after two years of wait ing the New College coffeehouse is closer than ever to brimming over into reality The 5 year-old movement to establish a coffeehouse in the barn next to the an thropology lab received an approved Capital Improvement Trust (CIT) pro posal. This could mean a $100,000 barn renovations budget-one-sixth of the $647 thousand allocated to the USF at Sarasota Campus by the CIT, a state fund which supports non-academic campus ac tivities It took no small amount of time and effort to gain these funds The college submitted the proposal two years ago. "The process takes time," said Director of Student Affairs Mark Johnson. 'There's a lot of red tape. Even now after years of waiting we finally have the allocation but it's not as if [the coffeeshop renovation] will happen tomorrow." The CIT meeting this Friday may ex pedite the process by allowing students and faculty to voice their opinions on where the CIT funds will ultimately go. The meeting will be held in the Fishbowl a t 9:00 p m and is open to all who are in terested But even if the coffeeshop does come into being, what guarantee does the col lege have of its longevity? Daryl in Avery, a third year student and coffee enthusiast spearheading the effort to organize the coffeehouse concedes the task is ambi tious, "but not undoable a s soon as the SEE "COFFEE" ON PAGE 3 LIVING WALLS by Charles C h oi What we have here is a failure to com municate. Students were granted the luxury of writing on the living walls, and have done so for over four years now. But at this point in time, the living walls are not protected properties. The police have the legal right to investigate and ar rest any person who engages in such acts of criminal mischief Writing on the walls has always been against the law. Though police have pur sued many reports of criminal mischief in the past, they have had a low percentage of arrests in comparison; few people ever come forward to offer either their confes sions or lamentations. Florida State Statute 806 .13 defines criminal mischief as willful and malicious injury or damage by any means to prop erty belonging to another, and includes graffiti or other acts of vandalism. Damage of $1 ,000 or more is considered a third degree felony; less severe damages are considered misdemeanors Students are not exempt from arrest, nor have they ever been. Though the po lice have the option to refer cases to Student Court, they do not have the oblig ation to. However, the walls near the back of Hamilton Center were recognized by Student Affairs to be 'living walls', where students could express themselves if they wanted to SEE "WALLS" ON PAGE 3

After spending five months in Japan as a part of her undergraduate studies, Hernandez received her Bachelors in Sociology and left for the University of Michigan's graduate school program. For the past eight years Hernandez worked as a full time student in Michigan. She took a year and a half off to do re search in Mexico City on 'Workers Owned Factories' and she will be com pleting her dissertation in December in order to receive her Ph.D. With one more year of graduate chool to go, Hernandez began sending out applications to colleges and universi ties. "There are different types of colleges," she said. "I'm more attracted to smaller schools because you have more student/faculty interaction." When Hernandez began receiving job offers, one of the main elements that at tracted her to New College was the faculty/student ratio. "What appealed to me about New College was the size," she said. "This is the kind of place I was looking forward to because the people were very friendly and the most important issue is that they care about teaching." Since the resignation of Associate Cii'talyst General Editor James Reffell Managing Editor Michelle Wolper Staff Writer Charles Choi Layout Heather Oliver Nicole Ganzekaufer Business Managers Sara Foley Tom Heisler Regular Contributor Mario Rodriguez Professor of Sociology Charles Green in the summer of '95, there has been a "search plan," said Chair of the Division of Sciences and Associate Professor of Psychology Gordon Bauer, for a new ad dition to the Social Sciences Division. A committee of three faculty members and two students worked together to re view candidates for the new position and advertisements were placed in several professional journals to alert candidates of the job opening. "We were looking for someone who specialized in race, class, and gender," said Associate Professor in Sociology David Brain, one of the members of the committee. "After that we looked for can didates based on their quality." Bauer said that approximately I 00 people applied for the position and it was the job of the committee to choose the three most qualified candidates for an in terview. "There is some difficulty in recruiting top rate faculty from the best schools," said Bauer. "Sarah was selected for a number of reasons. In terms of criteria she was prepared to deal with race, class, and gender from an international perspective. I think if you look at New College we're not represented by enough people with that perspective. She comes from an out standing program." As Brain said, "She just seemed a good fit." Hernandez said that working with the students at New College has been an ex citing experience. "It's been wonderful to see the input from the students here com pared to the campus where I come from in Michigan," she said. "I see a lot more involvement from the students, which is really great." v 0 f e NCSA ( S fud enf Govern menf) Erections Wednesday v 0 f e The Catalyst is available on the World Wide Web at http :I /www.sar. usf edul-catalyst/ Direct submissions and inquiries to: The Catalyst 5700 Tarniami Tr.

The Catalyst September 3, 1996 3 "COFFEE" FROM PAGE 1 money is ready to go." Despite a 25% return rate from last year's Common Grounds survey, which was dispersed to the entire student popu lation requesting feedback on coffeeshop issues, Avery is confident student/faculty support for the coffeehouse is strong. She is optimistic about the out-pouring of stu dent involvement once the business gets off the ground. "It's going to be formed by the input of the students and I think [student con cern] will be more free-flowing once they have something concrete to input." Just like the coffee, student involve ment will have to be on tap from the get-go. The coffeeshop must be self-suf ficient; it must generate enough revenue to cover operational costs after the CIT a1locations have been used up. This doesn't mean the menu will be pricy. On the contrary, Avery said the shop would have to make only $100 a day to break even. Since the shop will be non-profit, students will get prices at a fraction of the "going rate." Although Avery is confident in the ini tial success of the venue, Mark Johnson cautions against excessive optimism. "Realistically, I'm not convinced it would be a wise, prudent thing to say it would be self-supporting. I think it would have to be subsidized by the A and S (Student Activities and Services fees) for a while." "WALLS" FROM PAGE 1 This practice dates back about four years, to when the graffiti had reached all the way to the walls beside the Student Affairs office. Student Affairs wanted to curb the spread of the graffiti, and Steve Waldman, New College Student Alliance President at the time, set up giant easels as portable walls on which one could write. That didn't work. Waldman then cooked up the concept of 'living walls'. According to Alum Mike Rothbaum, the living walls were designed to be protected areas, "layers and layers of graffiti, like sedimentary rock, where you could see what people were saying and thinking This is not to say Johnson is trying to dilute coffeeshop fervor. "There're plenty of cynics on this campus. I can be as cynical as the next guy, but err funds are not something to be cynical about because they are easy to spend and good things can happen with them. It just takes time." Avery espouses a similar outlook in her belief New College students will as sign an atmosphere all their own to the coffeeshop once it opens. And by admit ting the general public, Avery hopes to propel New College students to action in more ways than merely assigning an am biance. She wants "to broaden the range of interaction. New College tends to be isolated ... We like our little elite society, but I think we can learn from anyone who comes along." Currently anyone coming along Dort Drive through the hot dusk won't find a warm coffee mug and cozy chair to curl up in. The empty reality of the barn re mains, inertly blending into the background of its environment. A1though Avery firmly believes that New College wants a coffeehouse, she feels she has played too great a conceptual role thus far. "The interest is there," she said, "the momentum and the initiative are not. It's very characteristic of New College." Avery added, "I want more student input. There are too many I's in the things that I say. I want there to be more We's and They's." years ago." When the walls of the Publications Office were painted over this summer, Student Affairs made it understood that one wall would be left free for student ex pression. At this point, Mark Johnson and New College Student Alliance President Jessica Falcone are deciding on what areas to give 'living wall' status. Johnson said, "I'm not opposed to a graffiti space, a living wall, so to speak, but when it extends to furniture, floors, fixtures, bulletin boards, then it's gotten out of hand. I think we need to recognize the fact that the Student Center is a public place .. .It's property supported with A&S [Activity and Service] fees. But every wall is not a living wall." OUTSIDE THE IVORY TOWER International A South Korean court sentenced a former president to death last Monday. Chun Doo Hwan was found guilty on charges of planning a 1979 coup and at tempted murder of his then senior officer when he was an army general. His lawyer is preparing to challenge the rul ings, and the appeals could last several months. U.S. intelligence officials have con cluded that Pakistan was secretly building a missile plant using blueprints and equipment supplied by China. U.S. government officials did not confirm the report which stated Pakistan may have developed nuclear warheads to be placed atop these missiles. Iraqi troops withdrew from the Kurdish city of Irbil only a few hours after they helped Kurdish rebels capture it on Saturday. In response, President Clinton sent over 300 U.S. warplanes and 20 ships in the region on high alert. The Clinton Administration vowed to punish Saddam Hussein for the attack, and U.N. Secretary General Boutros Boutros-Ghali has forbidden Iraq to sell oil to raise money for food and medi cine. National A computer simulation of the fina1 moments of TWA Flight 800 located the blast which brought down the plane on July 17 on a small site on the jet's right side. That same sight is near where FBI tests found traces of a chemical found in plastic explosives. State A Tallahassee court ruled that John Ward (convicted 22 years ago for the murder of his first wife), was a better candidate for custody of his 12-year-old daughter than her lesbian mother. Ward, who has been married four times, sought to gain custody after his ex-wife May Ward sued for increased child sup port. He said that his daughter Cassie had exhibited inappropriate behavior, in cluding poor hygiene, bad table manners and a preference for men's cologne. Mary Ward plans an appeal to the Florida Supreme Court.

MUSIC REVIEWS FROM THE FRITZ Beastie Boys The In Sound From Way Out!(Grand Royal/Capitol) Here you go, an entire album of "in strumental music composed and performed by Beastie Boys." Unfortunately, you've heard most of it before. Just to name a few, Groove Holmes Sabrosa Namaste, and Pow were lifted from Check Your Head and Eugene's Lament, Ricky s Theme, and Shambala from Ill Communication and the three songs not found on other discs sound much the same as those that do This disc is worth it, if only for the fact that it s un obtrusive and probably the only Beastie Boys album you can play at a party with out everyone singing the whole thing through. Ani DifrancoDilate(Righteous Babe) This woman is incredible! Not only can she write great songs but s he can also put out a stellar album every year (as she has been doing for the last six) Never have I seen someone so prolific and con sistently astounding. Dilate is a little less raw than Not a Pretty Girl, with a bit more back-up music, out the sentiments are the same and dilate shows how much Alanis and Po11y Jean have to learn about vocalization and songwriting. Sooner or later this girl is going to shoot through the roof (as she has been doing on college campuses everywhere) and you are going to wish you had been listening all along. Righteous Babe, PO Box 95, Ellicot Station, Buffalo, NY 14205. The Pogues. PogueMahone (Mesa/Bluemoon) This album starts off where My Blue Heaven left off. The Pogues have contin ued in more of a country-tinged vain, all the while tossing out a reference to their earlier works. Living In a World Without Her offers everything that songs like Lore/i once promised, even though the driving force, Shane MacGowan, is no longer with them. The Pogues are a new band, just as Shane MacGowan and the Popes are a new band. Critics panned 1992's Waiting For Herb, which, despite the lack of Shane was a fabulous album. Most critics will be sure to pan this one as well but if you like The Pogues, and don't mind forgiving and forgetting, you'll love this album. I think The Pogues are sending a message to those critics who dislike them now and those fans who will never forgive them for dropping Shane when they say Pogue Mahone. Various Artists.Songs in the Key of X (Warner Bros) I have only seen the show a few times but this album is a perfect companion for it. Soul Coughing's Unmarked Helicopters opens up the album on a good foot (though a bit Tripping Daisy-esque), after the intro theme of course. Three songs later, you get to hear William S. Burroughs sing-song Fuck Me Kitten to REM's Star Me Kitten (spectacular). Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds are up next with Red Right Hand (interestingly enough, the inspiration for the album as it made its way into one of the shows). Frank Black and the joint venture of Rob Zombie and Alice Cooper also make their way onto the disc. The classic pairing of the disc however, is Elvis Costello and Brian Eno an odd, if not perfect, pairing if I've ever heard of one.

MOVIE REVIEW THE CROW: CITY OF ANGELS by James Reffell "I have been to hell, and I confess: I like what I saw That's about all there is to like about The Crow: City Of Angels There are a score of visual set-pieces that are a won der to behold, but the bulk of the movie is an embarrassment of bad plot and worse dialogue. It may be that the movie wa s doom e d to be a poor shadow of its predeccessor The Crow from the start. The plot after all, read exactly the same: nice fella gets offed by the supernatural gangster forces of evil in the city, and returns from the grave to look pretty, wear neat makeup, and commit appropriate acts of vengeance. Novel the fir s t time ( maybe), but hardly so the second. Not that audiences actually want origi nality in a sequel : they want more of what was nifty the first time around Unfortunately, City of Angels cannot pro vide even that comfort. The Crow had an aesthetic lead (Brandon Lee) who could not only pose gloomily for the camera, but could also act. His replacement, Vincent Perez, makes the George Lazenby James Bond look good. It may not be entirely his fault; though his facial contortions and stilted dialogue come straight from the WalMart school of acting, he is hampered by an accent that some Hollywood execu tive probably considered "authentically East L.A.," instead of the perfectly lovely accent I'm sure he had before the "dialect coach" got ahold of him. And of course Vincent Perez offers neither the famous father (Bruce Lee) nor the convenient aura of morbidity that the late Brandon Lee gave to The Crow The Crow had an incredible sound track that not only complemented the music video-esque gothic quality of the film but was matched closely with the narrative. The scene that included a dead gangmember being thrown through a win dow into a Thrill Kill Kult concert was priceless City Of Angels comes with a poorly thought out jumble of vaguely trendy music that at best is treated as background noise and at worst is taste lessly juxstaposed with the action. P.J. Harvey for a chase scene? The band playing for the theoretically spooky Day of the Dead climax is the Deftones?? Somebody was not paying attention. The Crow has interesting villains, who provide a credible threat to the immortal as long as you don t kill the bird protago nist. City of Angels has a junkie, a pathetic pervert, a stock Asian domina trix/ninja and another junkie. Yes folks, my highest hopes for this movie were dashed when the usually spooky Iggy Pop attempted to intimidate his pursuer by getting high, looking scared, running away, shouting obscenities, and then running away again Oooh scary. All that said, there are reasons to see this low point in the history of sequels. At its best, City of Angels momentarily tran scends the absurdity of its stilted dialogue and gratuitous crow-shapes into as in the sublime ending of Curve as he floats down a river, showered by flower petals. Besides, the worst City of Angels could do to you is cause you pain-and, as Vincent Perez hoarsely tells us just before his predictable triumph: "My pain is my power!"
