1 THE February 22, 2013 Vol. 60, Issue 9 A California Baptist University Campus Publication BANNER Campus responds to public safety By Grace Ferrell & Carli Sprague News Editor & Staff Writer notifications and automated text messages are the way California Baptist University s Office of Public Safety can alert students, staff and faculty of incidents that may affect the campus. Recently, due to a few isolated incidents on CBU s campus and in the neighboring Riverside community, public safety has reiterated its hope that students continue to take precautionary measures toward security. Jim Walters, director of Public Safety, said that although these recent events do not suggest the university is being targeted in any way, the Office of Public Safety continues to take necessary precautions. An advisement was ed Jan. 11 notifying the campus community of a stolen vehicle that was parked and locked in Lot 7 behind Simmons Hall. Walters said that the incident is believed to have happened during the day, but this type of crime can happen any time. The car, completely intact, was recovered blocks away. No forcible entry was used to break in the vehicle. Another notification issued Feb. 2 indicated another vehicle theft in the Lancer Arms parking area. The vehicle was taken around 10 p.m., and took less than two minutes. The second car has not been found and the incident is still being investigated. See Safety Page A3 In this issue...

Students show appreciation Recognition honors CBU 2012 donors, students say Thank You By Catrina Head At California Baptist University, Feb. 14 is not just about romance but also about showing appreciation for those who take an interest in students education. As students made their way from class to class last week, eyes were drawn to the red hearts attached to buildings, benches and equipment. The stickers were placed as a part of Love a Donor Day to remind students of the generosity of the many donors that help fund the university. In additon, students and faculty showed their gratitude for one another in two ways. CBU faculty members wore red hearts on their clothing Feb. 13 and 14 in hopes of showing their love for education and for the students who make up the university. At the beginning of each class, the professors were asked to give a brief explanation of the heart and tell the students why they enjoy teaching. Academic Services devised this idea to remind students that they are the heart of CBU. Tables set up in the Stamps Courtyard gave students the opportunity to write a note of thanks to the 2012 donors who contributed to the university. Faculty and staff members who donated funds to the universitylast year also wore I am loved pins on campus. In exchange for writing notes, students received a candy bar. This event was devised as a way to thank our donors in a unique way because it comes from the students themselves and make students aware of the Riverside to conduct life survey The city of Riverside will be conducting quality of life surveys starting late March and running through April. Random phone surveys will be conducted in March, and online and paper surveys will be available in April. College students are encouraged to take part in the survey any way they can. The surveys are part of Seizing Our Destiny: The Agenda for Riverside s Innovative Future, which is an initiative dedicated to improving the quality of life in Riverside. According to the website, seizingourdestiny.com, Seizing Our Destiny s vision is that Riverside would be known as a unified city, a location of choice, a catalyst for innovation and a place of intelligent growth. We are very desirous to include CBU students in the survey, said Melissa Garrety, who works with the Office of Economic Development for the city of Riverside. We want to make sure that college students voices are heard in this process and are reflected in the results of the survey. Garrety said the economic development office hopes to have a presence on campus sometime in April to provide a place to take the paper survey and get more information about the Seizing Our Destiny initiative. The survey will cover a variety of topics from safety concerns to community involvement. The initiative hopes to use the data collected from th survey to gauge how the initiative has affected the quality of life in Riverside, as well as how to continue improving the city. Mark S. Langworthy, senior history and political science double major, said he likes Riverside, overall. His home is in Murrieta, so he notices the smog whenever he comes back to Riverside. It does make the sunsets nice, though, Langworthy said. As a cross-country runner, Langworthy said he would like to see more parks and greenery in the Riverside area. Since I run around the area a lot, I like it when it s not just city, he said. Garrety encouraged students to keep up with developments on the survey and Seizing Our Destiny through following the Facebook and Twitter initiatives. Report details reported cases of Internet fraud, harassment By Sarah Jane O Keefe Photo Editor In a social media-hungry culture, Internet usage is a powerful tool to connect, but when abuses such as harassment and fake identities take place, it becomes difficult to stop. A volunteer organization known as Working to Halt Online Abuse, released statistics on cases throughout The report said the organization receives up to 75 reports of online harassment and cyber-stalking incidents each week. Of these, 90 to 95 Photo by Grace Ferrell Yvonne Fyne-Nsofor writes a note of thanks to 2012 donors. About 500 notes of appreciate will be mailed to alumni and key donors. percent are legitimate cases. said it resolves more than 70 percent of the cases it receives. Linaja Duncan, California Baptist University graduate student studying public relations, knows all too well the dangers that the Internet can hold. See Donor Page A2 After receiving special recognition as a model, Duncan decided to create a Facebook page for her modeling work. But she was surprised to find that someone else had beat her to it. When I clicked on it, everything was in Russian, Duncan said. By Rebekah Wahlberg The page, which focused on Duncan s modeling work, used her modeling name to appear as if she had created the profile. It had photos of her and status updates.

2 Page A2 Politician details life of mixing faith, politics By Grace Ferrell News editor The government must turn helping those in need back into the hands of private organizations and religious groups, said Assemblyman Mike Morrell during a visit to a California Baptist University history class. Two hundred and four times in the scripture we are commanded to help the poor, Morrell said. None of those times does it ever say governments or taxpayers should. Morrell spoke to history professor Andrew Twitty s class Feb. 8 about moral and ethical issues that arise from being a Christian politician. I chose Mike Morrell because I had worked with him in the past, and I knew what kind of man he is, Twitty said. He works very hard for his constituents and bases Photo by Amy Nugent Students float through different booths set up that represents on world-wide positions at annual the Summer Ministry Fair Feb. 5. Summer ministry fair offers wide array of opportunities By Emily Minnick Staff Writer Hitting the beach, sleeping in and soaking up as much sun as possible are activities most students look forward to during summer vacation. A lot can happen during summer, but choosing what to do during the time off from school starts many months before summer break. A Ministry and Summer Job Fair was held Feb. 5 at California Baptist University to inform students of the many possible summer-work opportunities. Ponderosa Pines Christian Camp, Invisible Children, Sea World San Diego and Wycliffe Bible Translators were among the summer camps and ministry organizations present at the job fair. Most of the groups offered paid summer employment or internships. At the Mount Hermon Christian Camp and Conference Center booth, Ruth Nyquist, junior graphic design major, explained how she worked as a photographer at the high school ranch last summer. By working at Mount Hermon, Nyquist was able to live and work at the camp, better developing her photography skills. I wanted to work with something with photography, Nyquist said of the summer ministry. Besides providing room and board, working at a summer camp also proves spiritually beneficial for students. Being able to grow myself and really learn what the campers learn each week, I am able to challenge myself and grow in the Lord, said Brandon Fries, senior sociology major who has worked four summers at Hume Lake Christian Camps. Calen Plouffe, senior kinesiology major, met Fries while working at Hume Lake. After meeting over the summer, Fries and Plouffe were able to stay connected because they both attend CBU. Beyond camps, some students are serving through CBU s International Service Projects and United States Projects. I wanted to not just sit around all summer, said Sam Scisson, senior graphic design major. I wanted to be able to get out and serve. Since this is her first ISP teaming, she said she feels it is going to be a life-changing experience. Scissons and her team will travel to Thailand with open hearts to help people in any way they can. Whether working at a summer camp, serving an ISP team, being involved with an internship or just relaxing, summer is a time for change and new experiences. his life and decisions on the book of Proverbs. He is very serious about his faith, and I knew that he would be the perfect candidate to talk about the importance of the Constitution and how his faith affects his political decisions. Morrell actually never expected to transition from the real estate industry into politics, he said. However, the dire state of the political sphere drew him out to help California s 40th Assembly District. This is the first time in American history that we are probably, if we don t clean this up soon, going to leave you guys in debt, Morrell said. That s why I got into politics. I don t think (the next generation) should pay someone else s bills. Morrell said he uses any chance to speak with students in hopes of challenging them to research their candidates wisely and elect politicians who will truly represent them. I have to work on any young person that will listen to me, Morrell said. There are going to be some who like what I say and think it is reasonable. Hopefully, that will spur them; if they don t get into politics full time, they ll research their politics in a way that we can begin to make better choices. While Morrell said California is often cited as one of the most poorly run state governments, he said he believes that within two to four years the state could change if the 80 California state assemblymen were sold out to the citizens. Of Morrell s visit to his class, Twitty said, The students will walk away with a greater understanding of the U.S. Constitution. They Crime Cont. from Page A1 percent of Internet harassers are not from the same location as the victim. Many are from different states and countries, as in Duncan s June 2012 case. Duncan immediately contacted Facebook and explained the situation. Within about a halfhour of verifying my identity, they took the account down and I never saw it again, Duncan said. reports that the No. 1 way cyber-bullying and harassment occurs is through ; the second most common way is through Facebook. Since 2011, the number of cases Photo by Willoughby Douglas Mike Morrell, representive to the California State Legislature, speaks to a history class about their role in government. will also benefit from seeing a politician who truly cares about his region and constituents. It shows that there are still politicians who are involved in politics for the involving Facebook has increased, as well as the severity of the incidents. Describing herself as a precautious Internet user, Duncan now uses Google to search for her modeling name more often to protect against fake profiles, limits her contact on social media sites, and keeps her personal Facebook profile private. Creating profiles on social media sites and making accounts is easily accessible to anyone with an Internet connection, making it nearly impossible to halt fake profiles. In a sense, I wish there could be an extra layer of security, and in an ideal world, there would be but I don t think it s very practical, Duncan said. Ambassador Cameron Munter, American diplomat and career foreign service officer, spoke Feb. 6 at Riverside s Mission Inn about perceptions of mistrust between the U.S. and Pakistan. When Munter s former high school history teacher introduced him, he said the ambassador was the poster boy to critical thinking. He knew to question everything. Munter carried his critical-thinking skills into his career, working as the U.S. ambassador to Pakistan for two years and serving in Serbia, Baghdad, the Czech Republic and Poland. Now Munter serves as a professor of international relations at Pomona College, where he received an honorary doctoral degree in He said that the United States has been trying over the past serveral years to establish a long-term relationship with Pakistan. In 2009, the United States set up a $7.5 billion long-term assistance program to help the country. The problem, Munter said, is that the U.S. could not deal with the battle between Pakistan s long-term and short-term needs. The problem that the United States has with Pakistan is that there is a set of dually narratives in both countries, Munter said. The Americans have a sense that the Pakistanis are duplicitous. We give them money. They don t do what we say. Munter added that Pakistanis think the United States uses them whenever it wants. He said these narratives are what got in the way of making policy. Most terrorists come out of Pakistan, Munter explained, but the terrorists are not under Pakistan s control. The U.S. expected Pakistan would hunt down Osama Bin Laden, but the Pakistanis were unable to pursue him. The U.S. shook its trust with Pakistan through intense pursuit of terrorism, Munter said. During a drone strike four months ago, 50 Pakistani people were killed. Dr. Daniel W. Skubik, right reasons, and are people of faith. Morrell encourages students to get involved in politics for their sakes and future generations. donors role on this campus, said Kim Cunningham, manager of donor relations. This year, students wrote approximately 500 thank-you cards that will be mailed out to different alumni and key donors who supported California Baptist University financially during this calendar year. I ve grown to love the people personally and feel like they are doing a great job following the Great Commission and I wanted to support that, said Wendy England, university receptionist. professor of law, ethics and humanities and international lawyer, explained that there are targeted attacks and signature attacks. Targeted attacks go after known terrorists and signature attacks target groups of people based on suspicious activity. The drone strike Munter mentioned was a signature attack. Later, it was discovered that most, if not all, of those who died in the attack were innocent civilians, Skubik said. Skubik added that signature attacks that kill innocent civilians happen because of poor decisions that are based on incomplete intelligence. As Ambassador Munter indicated, there are more signature attacks than there are targeted attacks, Skubik said of that information. The Pakistanis are opposed to U.S. drone attacks and to military activity in their country without the cooperation of their military, Skubik said. Ambassador Munter also said that the vast majority of Pakistanis, apart from the drone strikes and other military actions, like News Counseling center helps group love through pain California Baptist University s Counseling Center recently started a support group called Hiding from Love. The group meets 4 6 p.m. Wednesdays at the Wellness Center. Linda Bramel, marriage and family therapist intern, helps facilitate the group with Ruth Olson, a licensed marriage and family therapist. The purpose of the group is to discover how we are hiding from the love that is out there for us to receive, Bramel said, and then to learn how we need to take risks to find safe people to receive the love that we need. Bramel is helping with the group because so many people are desiring to find love and can t receive it because of their own inhibitions. The course is based on the book Hiding from Love by Dr. John Townsend. The sessions and workbook are free to CBU faculty, staff, students and their families. Bramel said some signs that a person is hiding from love might be black-and-white thinking, feeling omnipotent in a relationship or being dependent. Addictions can also be a symptom. Anything that you fill the void with could be a reason you re hiding from love, Bramel said. Those interested in attending should call the Counseling Center at (951) Pakistian ambassador speaks on U.S. international relations By Sarah Schopick Staff Writer Donor Cont. from Page A1 By Rebekah Wahlberg the United States and want to have a good relationship with the U.S., but they want their sovereignty respected by the United States, Skubik said. They want to have some say as to what goes on inside its borders. Munter offered a solution the U.S. needs to lax its guard on terrorism and fix its relationships with other countries, such as India, China and Turkey. The U.S. could act as a bridge or mediator to reduce the tension between the countries, Skubik said. On the one hand, the U.S. is in a good position to be a bridge or mediator because it has interests in good relations between India and China, has interests in good relations between Turkey and Iraq. It would be in the U.S. interest to see those tensions diminish, Skubik said. On the other hand, because the U.S. has interests, and it s known by India and China, or by Turkey and Iraq, that the U.S. has particular interests with (taking) a particular position on the issues between these countries the U.S. might not be in the best position to be a mediator. News Safety Cont. from Page A1 Between two and four cars are stolen off the CBU campus each year. So we are taking this seriously, but not panicking, Walters said. We are trying to become more adept at notifying the campus of things that are even of interest, not necessarily threatening, but of interest so that they can understand we are part of a bigger community. Following the recent shootout between an ex-los Angeles police officer and Riverside police officers on Magnolia and Arlington avenues, CBU public safety continues to monitor the surrounding neighborhood and inform the CBU community if any issues arise. If an event ever arose where the university needed to be warned of an emergency, the Office of Public Safety has text-based, automated calling, and network computer popup notification systems in place to reach the campus. Later this month, the university will also be testing its outdoor siren. Because of the recent events that have taken place on and around the campus, students are also making a few changes to ensure better individual safety. Lyndsey Jackson, junior healthcare administration major, said, I also lock my car, take all valuables with me, and if possible, always walk with someone if I am on campus at night. Walters reassured people that campuses like California Baptist University remain safe places for its constituents. X-Men producer set to speak during chapel services on applying Christ to various careers By Catrina Head Ralph Winter, producer of the first three X-Men movies, will speak at chapel Feb. 27 in the Van Dyne Gym, and again during a formal lecture Feb. 28 in the Innovator s Auditorium as part of the Christ and Culture event. Winter will speak Wednesday at both 10 and 11 a.m. chapel sessions in the gym, and on Thursday he will go into more detail in the lecture. The event seeks to give students and faculty insight on how to apply Christ to their chosen profession. Winter was selected as the guest speaker because of his success in incorporating Christ into his field of work. His notoriety certainly demonstrates his skill as a producer, said Dr. Todd Bates, associate professor of philosophy at California Baptist University, in regards to why Winter was asked to speak. The attributes desired in the guest speaker for this event are that he is a practicing Christian who demonstrates excellence in his craft for God s glory, Bates said. Winter has produced many successful films, including the X-Men series, Fantastic Four and Planet of the Apes. He is a wellknown film producer as well as an open follower of Christ. The Christ and Culture event has gone on for six years, and has brought with it some excellent speakers who have provided valuable information. However, Bates expressed his desire for more students to come and take advantage of the resources available to them. In the lecture, there will also be a panel of faculty members who specialize in areas ranging from architecture to Christian history. The purpose of this is for them to take Winter s ideas and demonstrate how to apply those thoughts to a specific discipline. CBU students, faculty and staff members are invited to attend the chapel services and lectures.

3 Spread Spread Page A4 Page A5 It has been acknowledged for hundreds of years that Laughter is the best Medicine. Laughter can come in handy, whether it is for dealing with an illness or the pressures of stress. Laughter can dramatically change the quality of, and outlook on, our lives and can also bring people together and help establish personal connections. Laughing is a natural cure for many things, such as depression, chronic sickness and other ailments, said Matt Chong, senior kinesiology major. Physical Release Ever felt like you had to laugh or else you would cry? Have you experienced the cleansed feeling after a good laugh? Laughter does, in fact, provide a physical and emotional release. Laughter is exercising; while laughing, the facial muscles, stomach, lungs and heart are getting a workout. Live Longer Smile, laugh and live longer. Laughter can increase your overall sense of well-being as well as put you in a positive frame of mind. Laughter brings the focus away from anger, guilt, stress and negative emotions. It seems like a cliché notion, but laughter really is the best medicine given directly to us from God along with the ability to rejoice to him and among ourselves, Chong said. Change Your Perspective Responses to stressful events are mainly considered stressful if an individual views something By Maribel Ramirez Asst. Spread Editor as a threat or a challenge. However, humor can give people a more light-hearted perspective and help them view events as challenges, thereby making them less threatening and a more positive experience. Laughing helps you take the world less seriously. Life is short, and remembering to laugh, even if it s at yourself, makes life that much easier to go through, said Dominic F. Sabido, junior history major. Laughter is contagious, so if you bring more laughter into your life, you can most likely help others around you laugh more. Humor lightens your burdens, inspires hopes, connects you to others, and keeps you grounded, focused and alert. Laugh more and worry less besides, it does not cost a cent and is highly contagious. By Dayana Ramirez Managing Editor With an increase in comedy show options, students have increasingly become engaged with not only quoting the characters from their favorite shows but also making sure that they do not miss any of the seasons. At California Baptist University, a poll was conducted to see which television comedy shows were favored among the student body. The list of shows included The Big Bang Theory, Parks and Recreation, Modern Family, New Girl and The Office. The Big Bang Theory and its famous slogan, Bazinga, was the winner. Some aspects of the show students enjoy are the amusing comments and actions of Dr. Sheldon Cooper and other characters. They re so smart and it s funny. My favorite character is Sheldon because he is smart yet socially awkward, said Cesar Miranda, senior marketing major. Many students agree that being able to relate to the shows makes it even funnier. If you have a lot of knowledge of what the characters are talking about, it s even funnier, said William Bohrer, senior business administration major. Others mentioned easy access to the shows through resources, such as Netflix and other websites, makes it even more appealing and convenient to keep up with the seasons that are available. I watch (The Big Bang Theory) because my brother has all the seasons and since I m always out and about, when I do get the chance to watch TV it s that show, said Ulises Araiza, senior business management major. I really like the fact they are so smart but are oblivious to the world around them. They live in their own bubble and really don t care what people think about them but embrace who they really are. Miranda mentioned that it is one among many shows that people other than students truly enjoy. He also said that he knows of many professors who currently watch the show and consider it truly funny because they understand what the characters are talking about. Furthermore, it seems that students fully understand the show lingo and feel some sort of a connection to the characters. I can relate to all the things they talk about: the games, comics and action figures, Miranda said of the show. Of all the shows polled, students preferred The Big Bang Theory overall, but The Office took a close second.

4 Page A6 Healthy spiritual life contributes to overall well-being By Brianna Nelson Designer Christians are often reminded to treat their bodies as the temple of God. However, the culture we live in today is obsessed with body image. But for Christians, it is just as important, if not more so, to be spiritually healthy. As college students, we often struggle with keeping the necessary balance needed for our health. Between homework, classes, projects, work and even sports, we tend to overbook ourselves, causing our spiritual health and wellness to be neglected. Our education is put on the forefront of our lives, as most often it will determine the success we have in life. Overbooking ourselves may seem necessary to accomplish all that is needed to be successful in school. But overbooking our lives most often leads to unhealthy outcomes and causes students to experience more stress in life. Work production and quality of our efforts often suffer as a result of overbooking. In an effort to stay stressfree and healthy, we need to learn to prioritize: Give what is most important the needed amount of time before adding more commitments to our workloads. As a full-time student with three jobs, and several extra-curricular activities, I am prone to overbooking myself, and I have felt the effects of this. Not only have I done poorly on countless assignments, projects and tests, I have also suffered through many breakdowns and lost out on important opportunities because of my inability to say no. As a part of my New Year s resolution, I prioritized all of my commitments, and have put a special emphasis on spiritual health, particularly by having my daily quiet time and observing the Sabbath. One of the most important duties as Christians is the observance of the Sabbath. We are told throughout the Bible that we must observe a day of rest, the Sabbath, because it is holy. It was the day that the Lord rested after he created everything. If we do not observe the Sabbath, we are not only running our bodies down, but we are also not abiding by God s commands. Being spiritually healthy also helps our overall well-being. If our relationship with God is strong and consistently being worked on to be even stronger, our health mentally, physically and emotionally will become stronger. Spirituality is often linked to our physical well-being. So if we are physically healthy, we often feel healthier altogether. Our spiritual health is something that needs to be viewed as an important facet of our lives. Without consistent quiet time, and a day or at least several hours of rest each week, we will feel the tolls of the weakening of spirituality in all areas of our lives as Christians. As reliable as the Internet can be sometimes, it is not always a safe place. There is no denying that the standards and expectations of dating between men and women have changed over the years. Online dating has made it much easier to find people with whom one might be compatible. However, the implementation of online dating sites like Match.com has brought up more safety precautions that individuals need to keep in mind. Mary Kay Beckman, a woman from Las Vegas, recently found that out the hard way. Beckman signed up for Match.com unaware of the dangers of meeting someone online. Beckman was matched with Wade Ridley back in 2010 and after a 10-day relationship, decided to break things off. Instead of handling a breakup like most people do, Ridley hid in Beckman s garage, stabbed her 10 times, and proceeded to stomp and kick her after his knife broke. Beckman is now suing Match.com for $10 million. Beckman s cause for suing the company is to make sure the website does a better job of screening users and notifying them of the potential dangers of using their services. The site is aware of the dangers that online dating poses. In fact, their terms of use warns users that the dating service is not responsible for the interactions that users have online or offline, as well as any damages or injuries that result through meeting potential matches. The site does not do background checks on users when they sign up for the site, but they do reserve the right to check names against the National Sex Offender Registry at any time. With odds like these, it makes the thought of online dating even more terrifying than pursuing relationships offline. There is security in that if you get creepy vibes from someone, you do not have to meet up with them. But the fact of the matter is you honestly do not know if that guy you have been flirting with may be plotting your impending doom. However, this issue can be seen the same with starting a relationship offline. You really never know the actions of which a person is capable until you get to know him or her and spend Perspectives Illustration by Geoff Gouveia A member of the online dating site, match.com, is brutally attacked by a man seeking revenge for breaking off their relationship after 10 days. Match leads to assault By Sharayah Le Leux Editor in Chief time with that individual. This is why it is important to scope out a person and be their friend before committing to a relationship. Sure, you run the risk of getting friend-zoned, but it is just as important to be someone s friend in a relationship as it is to be there for them in a romantic way. Through exercising caution such as suggesting a double date with friends, meeting in a public place or meeting in broad daylight the risks of meeting someone who could possibly harm you will be combated. What happened to Beckman is tragic, but suing Match.com will not help the matter. People need to exercise more caution when pursuing relationships online because they never know with whom they are meeting for coffee until it is too late. Materialism takes from Christianity By DayAna Ramirez Managing Editor As Christians, we claim to be strict followers of scripture, constantly memorizing verses and regurgitating passages of the Bible as a part of our daily speech. Yet, we do not always let go of our belongings to focus on what God is calling us to do. God calls us to help the poor and to be humble human beings who put others before ourselves, yet we fail to do this most of the time because we focus mostly on our possessions. Putting others before ourselves becomes something that is often too difficult to do because we live in a country where materialism thrives. We do not struggle to put food on our plates and obsessively continue to buy things, forgetting that there are other people in the world that fight for their survival. We also seem to have limited focus and involvement with others in underdeveloped countries that walk barefoot and have no clothes because they are unable to even afford to eat. Instead, we simply send a pair of shoes or other possessions that we have acquired through that cause and go back to our day-to-day materialistic lives forgetting about the many people that are still in need. We should be going to a foreign country and causing complete social reform, not just buying something for the people that need it, which is something we often do with our lives. We need to be there to help people struggling with mental and spiritual growth and to grow with them by better understanding the difficulties they experience. We need to be giving them our time and our devotion by demonstrating interest in their lives and letting them know they matter because they are our brothers and sisters in Christ. It is also our responsibility to not only help people in other countries, but here in the United States, as well. There are hundreds of homeless individuals suffering on our streets and many people we know who are going through extreme difficulties every day. It is time to put an end to Illustration by Geoff Gouveia Christians tied to materialism are distracted from living selflessly. our selfish desires, to rid our lives from excessive luxury, and to focus on not only giving to the poor but also making sure we are involved in social reform. We need to devote our lives to giving to others, not just financially but also spiritually. By also diverting our focus from the materialistic society in which we live to instead focusing on the well-being of those around us, we are able to help those less fortunate because they are our neighbors and we are obliged to aid them. Only then can we fully appreciate what we have and the fact that many cannot enjoy the same things in life that we can. This is the only way we will be able to successfully live in a fully functioning society that thrives on the moral growth of individuals who can work together. Combat drunken driving through driver education By Aubrey MacMillan ASST. PERSPECTIVES EDITOR Drunken driving poses a threat to all drivers, and endangers the lives of all who use motorized vehicles. Individuals must continue to be educated on the implications of receiving a DUI and recognize the impact drunken driving can have on citizens. Driving under the influence has compromised both property and safety of individuals for more than 100 years. No one is exempt from danger. Although this knowledge has been continually recognized, it fails to fully affect the behavior of drivers who are under the influence of alcohol. A detachment between knowledge and behavior exists. Individuals may have heard about the dangers of driving while under the influence but are more influenced by the belief that an accident or presentation of a DUI will not happen to them. Citizens must recognize that they are responsible for the choices they make. All individuals must begin to realize the danger of driving under the influence and begin to take responsibility for their reckless actions. The most efficient way to combat drunken driving is to further educate citizens about the negative effects. Programs such as Every 15 Minutes prove to be effective ways to communicate the dangers of drunken driving to youth. These programs must continue to be publicized and discussed. Once an individual receives a DUI it remains a part of his or her driving record for life. One careless mistake causes harm to the individual, as well as others. Drivers must take DUIs seriously. Impaired actions may lead to serious injury or death. Once an act is committed it cannot be erased. DUIs exist to provide punishment for driving while intoxicated. Beyond recognition of the purpose of a DUI, citizens must be educated on the dangers of impaired driving and must prevent others from doing so as long as it is in one s power to stop a severe mistake.

5 SPORTS There are several ways to find fitness inspiration: celebrities, blogs, TV shows, weight-loss programs and, in some cases, God. As a Christian, God calls his followers to honor and take care of their body. As college students it can be difficult to find the time to cook a healthy meal or exercise daily. At California Baptist University, athletics is a gateway to honoring God s command and participating in an activity people enjoy. As God does command us in the Bible to honor our bodies, being an athlete is a great way to honor God in this aspect, said Connor Metcalfe, junior communications studies major and member of the men s volleyball team. With athletics, we are constantly grinding through workouts, conditioning, playing volleyball and eating well. 1 Corinthians 3:16-17 says, Do you not know that you are God s temple and that God s Spirit dwells in you? If anyone destroys God s temple, God will destroy him. For God s temple is holy, and you are that temple. God has blessed humans with bodies; they are a gift from him. People are commanded to take care of them, and utilize them in a way that is glorifying to him. If honor means to esteem, ascribe value to or to show respectful recognition of, then to honor our bodies would suggest that we esteem, ascribe a certain value to, and maintain a respectful recognition of our bodies, said Christopher Bates, CBU s strength and conditioning coach. Bates is known by athletes around campus as one who honors God by taking care of his body while training others to do the same. For Metcalfe, being an athlete at CBU has given him the opportunity to compete with secular schools and lead by example. It is key to show the light of Christ and making sure to remain Christ-like even through the competitiveness, Metcalfe said. Photo by Jesssica Bills Molly Zuhlke, along with her fellow Crazy Eight members, cheers her heart out for the Lancer volleyball teams. Combined with the cheerleaders, the Crazies help to mainitain crowd involvement and keep the energy in the gym alive during home games. Women can get crazy too By Christina Armstrong co-sports Editor The Crazies are known for their wacky attire, loud personalities and faithful commitment to all the Lancers sports. This year the Crazies are made up of seven spirited men and one animated woman. Molly Zuhlke, sophomore, has been able to experience being a part of California Baptist University s Crazy Eight firsthand. Zuhlke, the only female member of the Crazy Eight, was informed that she was selected to be a part of it just one month before school started. She said she was nervous meeting the group of men for the first time. She admits it took a while for her to become comfortable with everyone, but now she has fun with the others. Eddie Muro, junior communication studies major, and member of the Crazy Eight, said he thinks highly of Zuhlke. Muro says she is very sweet and she does a good job hanging in there with all of us other Crazies. She really doesn t care what others think about her. Zuhlke never expected to become a Crazie, but she was a dedicated fan throughout her freshman year at CBU. She said that she enjoyed going to all of the games, and she supported the teams with the enthusiasm of a true fan. Zuhlke insists she is a shy person at first, but one would not be able to tell when she is at a sporting event. Her excitement and passion for the different sports teams helps other Lancers fans stand up and cheer with her throughout the game. Her favorite sports to cheer for are basketball and volleyball. I grew up playing them (basketball and volleyball) so I understand what s going on, Zuhlke said. During these events Zuhlke can easily be spotted doing different dances, chants and cheers in the front row of the student bleachers. Lauren Uehara, freshman biology major, said that she likes the fact that there is a woman that is a part of the Among our team, there are young guys on the team who need guidance. If the leaders are leading them through Christ, this helps me stay on top of asking the Lord for his guidance and wisdom. Being an athlete can be strenuous at times, because of the tough physical activities they must endure, but it can be rewarding. Not only do they get to bond with a team and pursue their passion, but they get to grow and become fit spiritually, mentally and physically. Athletes are given the privilege to be an ambassador of Christ to the schools across the country that they compete against. They use the bodies God has given them and train them to perform at a high level. It should be noted that a major challenge faced in athletics is when the body is honored more than God, Bates said. When we attempt to eclipse God, giving our bodies all the credit because of its great talent, hard work, size, speed, physiology and appearance. Fitness is not only important to the individual, Crazy Eight this year. I know guys like to get crazy and cheer really loud at games, but so do a lot of girls. That s why I like seeing a girl going all out to support her school, Uehara said. Zuhlke s presence in the Crazy Eight helps spread Lancer pride throughout campus, as the Crazies spend a lot of extra time cheering for all the teams. Zuhlke talked about a time during the fall athletics season when she spent six hours on the soccer field cheering for the men s and women s soccer team. She said that some of her female friends come up and inform her they want to be one of the Crazies. She replied to them by asking if they truly enjoyed sports. If I didn t like sports I would be miserable, she said. The key for Zuhlke is that, even though she is the only woman, she knows and understands the game, making it easier for her to support the abundance of athletic teams on the CBU campus. Exercise understated form of worship By Whitney Waters co-sports editor but also to others, and to God. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 says, You do not belong to yourself, for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body. Joining a sport on campus allows students to interact with others striving to achieve similar goals. As it says in the Bible, an individual is stronger when he or she works with others and being on a team allows one to do so. Joining athletics is a great way to follow God s command. Ecclesiastes 4:12 says, A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken. Honoring the body is crucial to honoring God. To some degree, not honoring our bodies implies that we do not honor the creator of our bodies. Furthermore, we were given our bodies to embody our creator and live out the purposes, said Bates. The scene: Game 6 of the 2012 NBA Eastern Conference Finals. The Miami Heat, coming off of a game-five loss to the Boston Celtics, was one game away from elimination. Enter LeBron James. After nine seasons of media ridicule for lackluster performances in clutch situations, James came out cool and determined in He scored 45 points in Game 6 to help the Heat force a Game 7. Miami would go on to win the NBA title, and James would be named the NBA finals Most Valuable Player. In 2012, James emerged as the go-to guy in pressure-filled situations. There was a change in his performance between this year and the years past. All athletes have ways to get themselves ready to play. It is not uncommon to see a player listening to music or stretching out before a game to get hia oe her mind ready for competition. For James, pregame preparation meant reading books, including Suzanne Collins The Hunger Games trilogy. At California Baptist University, student-athletes have various ways to prepare for their upcoming competitions. Screaming fans, Hawaiian road trips and free clothes and athletic gear. While this life may sound like a dream to some, it is reality for California Baptist University student-athletes. Eventually, despite the perks, most athletes come to a place where they have to stop playing their sport. However, the silver lining in most stories of student-athletes ending their careers early is the fact that they have the opportunity to use their lessons from sports in other areas. Tami Hays, senior health education major, played soccer for 13 years before she brought her skills to CBU in fall Hays played on the women s soccer team during her freshman and sophomore years. After wrapping up her sophomore season, she decided it was time to hang up her soccer cleats for good. I was really frustrated all of the time and felt as if I could not develop any relationships with anyone outside of my team, Hays Page A7 Athletes create different pre-game rituals in order to enhance competition By Ryan cathers staff writer Zach Esquerra, senior psychology and criminal justice double major, is the starting right fielder for the baseball team. In 2012, Esquerra hit.325 with eight home runs and 49 RBIs. He is eighth in the program history with 25 home runs. Before each game, he makes sure he feels ready to play at a high level. Like James, he uses literature to help him prepare. Before the game, I read a chapter of the book Mind Gym, Esquerra said. I reflect on that. After reading, I take five to 10 minutes to visualize certain things, hitting or fielding, and in my head I go over situations that might happen in the game. This routine prepares Esquerra before going into each game. Other athletes on campus have found different ways to mentally prepare for their competitions. Kevin Kustura, sophomore kinesiology major and setter on the men s volleyball team, starts his mental and physical preparation hours before the match begins. If the match is at 7 p.m., (the team) will watch film on our opponent at 3:30 (p.m.), Kustura said. At 4:30 (p.m.), we will go eat together and after that we get stretched out at the training room. Whether it is visualization or a team meal athletes have and will always find a way to be fully prepared. Ex-athletes get involved, due to life without sports By Maya Gwynn Spread editor I...felt as if I could not develop any relationships with anyone outside of my team, Tami Hays said as she reflected. The major reason she quit was because of mental and physical exhaustion. Hays recalls feeling relieved after quitting, until soccer season began during the next fall. I went through a major mourning period, Hays said. It took me through a depression. It was intense. Another former CBU athlete with a similar story is Rachel McDaniel, senior graphic design major and former guard. McDaniel played two seasons for the women s basketball team. Basketball was really fun while it lasted, McDaniel said. After two seasons, the fun just seemed to disappear. McDaniel said that by the end of her sophomore season she knew in her heart it was time to quit. As a result of not playing their sports, both women received the chance to explore other opportunities. I became a resident assistant, which is the greatest job in the world, Hays said. After leaving basketball, McDaniel became the lead sports photographer for the athletics department, and one of her photographs was recently published by ESPN.

6 Sports Page A8 International athletes choose CBU By Kaitlyn Edwards Staff Writer Photo by Sarah Jane O Keefe Christopher Rabbich enjoys playing in Southern California s warm climate, and continues to strive toward becoming a professional golfer. In recent years, athletic teams on college campuses throughout the country have become a giant melting pot due to coaches looking outside of the U.S. to complete their rosters. California Baptist University has attracted 23 student-athletes from foreign countries such as Canada, Mexico, England, Brazil, Spain, Hungary, Serbia, the Dominican Republic and a few others. It is incredibly difficult to leave loved ones, but receiving a great education overseas in America sounds like a fantastic opportunity for most international students. The decision to leave home ultimately led Ingrid Carmona, senior civil engineering major, and Christopher Rabbich, senior public relations major, to CBU to further their education and athletic careers. Carmona was born in the Dominican Republic and is on the CBU women s volleyball team. She said that God s perfect plan ultimately led her to the university. CBU became interested in recruiting Carmona, and in January 2008 she received some life-altering news from the university. I got some news from CBU again so I just started doing my papers and everything, Carmona said. I finally got enrolled at CBU, and now I m here about to graduate with my civil engineering degree. As an international student, she was given the opportunity to learn English, learn about American culture, grow as an athlete and person and earn her degree. Transitioning into American living and college life was very difficult, specifically because I did not know English when I came, Carmona said. Rabbich was born in England and is a member of the men s golf team. He chose CBU because of the warmer climate, successful golf team and different educational opportunities. I miss my family a lot, my friends back home and sometimes that nice chilly wind, but not that often, Rabbich said. Rabbich said he would like to eventually become a professional golfer, and Carmona wishes to work in any of the civil engineering fields either in both the U.S. or the Dominican Republic. Photo by Sarah Jane O Keefe Ingrid Carmona shows off her game ball signifying that she set the women s volleyball all-time kills record in Playing like professionals, CBU students compete in intramurals against others By olivia Miller STaff writer Photo by Jacob Armstrong The baseball team practices in order to get ready for its upcoming games. They continue to train everyday in order to qualify for the postseason, and defend their National Christian College Athletic Association title. Baseball prepares for tougher 2013 season By Whitney Waters Co-sports editor California Baptist University s baseball team began their new season Feb. 1, claiming an victory over California State University, Los Angeles. The defending National Christian College Athletic Association World Series champs look forward to another successful and strong season. We re looking forward to doing our best to win our fourth consecutive conference title and make a return to Ohio to win another NCCAA championship, Cole Bullard, assistant coach, said. We have a veteran team full of experience, and a talented young core that we think are capable of producing this season. Last season, the team earned a record of and claimed CBU s third straight conference championship. With 19 home games in this season s schedule, the Lancers are in full gear and eager for the support of fans. The team ranked No. 25 of the top-40 teams in Collegiate Baseball Magazine s Division II preseason poll. The 2013 team added 13 freshmen and three transfer students to beef up and already formidable lineup. The best part about being on the baseball team is being able to continue the rich tradition of success the baseball team has had here at CBU, said Andrew Crowley, sophomore criminal justice major and outfielder. This season, CBU will encounter some tough competition, which began with a series against Sonoma State, Feb , a team also ranked in the preseason poll. Our early schedule consists of a tough road slate against some perennial front runners in the very deep California Collegiate Athletic Association, Bullard said. The first 12 games of the year will be against teams from the CCAA. Then, Pacific West Conference play will get underway March 7-8 at the Academy of Art. Although the team has a roster of strong players, there are still some challenges they will need to overcome. The biggest challenge may be overcoming any sort of entitlement, said Bullard. Our schedule is much tougher and our conference is now much deeper. Repeating as PacWest and NCCAA (champions) will be a much more difficult task Crowley believes that there are some things the team needs to focus on. The Lancers play at home as they take on California State University at San Bernardino, Feb. 22, and La Sierra University, Feb. 28 and March 1. Intramural basketball at California Baptist University has already been marked by flash, entertainment and improvement. The men s competitive league has been just that: competitive. With 25 teams participating, there have been many dunks and buzzer-beaters so far this season. Luke Henderson had a 29-point game where he hit a buzzer-beater, and then he made the free throw to win it, said Josh Mott, recreational sports graduate assistant. Freshman teams such as Cali Swag and The Rooks have held their own in their first season of CBU intramural basketball. It s just really cool to see freshmen guys get together and actually do well because at one point I was there as a freshmen team, Mott said. Gang Green, Original Hoopsters and Legal Aliens have been dominating the women s league. They have all played five games and are undefeated. Tsz Yan Chung on Legal Aliens is seriously amazing, said Nicole Saar, senior communication disorders major and recreational sports intern. She could play with the guys. There are also six teams participating in the recreational league. Juan-onJuan has become a fan favorite. Each team member wears a poncho and sombrero while they play their games. While the league has no championship game, the number of participants has grown since last year. The idea of people being able to play sports recreationally, not having to be super competitive, I think has become more acceptable, Mott said. In each league, every team plays seven games in its regular season. The top-12 teams with the best record in the competitive leagues move on to the championship. If there is a tie between any teams, their rank is determined by their sportsmanship rating. The sportsmanship rating is new to intramural basketball this year. Each team starts with five points, and whenever poor sportsmanship occurs the rating goes down one point. The intramural sports website, recsports.calbaptist.edu, has also been updated this season. Ratings, schedules and scores are all available on the website. The championship games, CBU2K13, will be played on March 7 in the Van Dyne Gymnasium.
