Women fall victim in hip-hop portrayals By Zach Hunsinger Regardless ol where one grew up or currently lives, regardless of wlml music one listens to or the TV shows one watches, regardless of skin color or social class, everyone is immersed in a society that is flooded with hip- hop. Hip-hop is everywhere It lives on the radio, mi television, in maga- lisements. in the Internet, and even on chat engines. Ignoring the influ- ence of hip-hop is impossible. Un- loiiiui.uely, the influence is far from positive. Linda Wade, an IPFW student and CEO of Nature Nurture Urban Con- sultants, presented the .seminar titled The Negative Images of Women Portrayed in Hip-Hop Music."

Smiley discussed how he saw videos as a child that showed disrespect audience in the Walb Studeni Union, which was also broadcast over the IPFW TV channel. The seminar discussed the negative dominance of rap, the socialization of tea of rap and how the average person can tight Wade initiated the presentation by playing a platinum song tilled "Hyp- notize." The song features several explicit sexual references along with several explicit advertisements; all references were sung to a captivat- ing beat.

Most videos feature scenes alluding to women servicing men Commenting about llie Uiaractors in ihe videos. Hylield stated that they are "living a life thai is not real" and Ihe audience misses that point. Bylield then explained how hip- hop helps to instill self-hatred within young girls. The girls are socialized into believing what they hear. After years of being devalued through mu- sic and videos, the girls are forced to accept the poor illustrations.

To combat this problem she again explained the importance of educating ourselves.

The 1 8th Annual IPFW Health Fair included over 100 exhibits [bat of- fered sludents and ihe community free fitness demonstrations, food, gills, health education and health Located in the ballroom and on ihe second door, hourly fitness demon- strations included yoga, de-stressing, core stability, belly dancing and Pi- Thc 12:30 p.m. belly dancing dem- onstration, led by A/usena bint Zwce- na, a principal dancer with Troupe Talecha, showed sludents how lo re- lieve stress through movement. Her belly dancing class is offered through Ihe IPFW Division of Continuing Studies from July 30 - Aug 29 on Monday and Tuesday evenings from 5:30 - 6:45 p.m. for a cost of $65. "Join!" said Zweena. "Belly danc- ing offers flexibility, slrength and con- fidence, which can be lacking in stu- dents on campus." She also advised to join, because dance solves a big problem for many students — finding time for oneself. For more informa- tion on belly dancing, contact Zweena at j/usen.ibinl/ ween.ifn.-yahoO.com. Food was also aplenty throughout many of the 108 booths.

During this session Ihc three speakers addressed Ihc gimmicks of ihe music induslry. Markcling ploys of mentioning alcohol and co- logne in songs. lead to a rise in sales. However, the goods marketed in rap songs arc de- preciable. These items lower in value as they age. The cor- porations who own the music artists have large profits and then use ihe profits to invest in appreciable items, With more profit the corporations can advertise more depre- ciable goods, continuing the cycle. Wade said, "music is a gimmick, an entry level, that reaches Ihe mainstream." The three speakers agreed education and confrontation arc ihc best tools for combat- ing this threat. This can be done through one-on-one re- lationships. Wade described most people as unaware of the situation. Parents may not un- derstand the lyrics or the innu- endos. Radio stations may not completely censor a swear or a sexual reference. Smiley said the dynamics of rap music are too complex to be fought in any one way. One main problem is societal greed. People want to make money, and the bottom line is sex sells. Unfortunately. women arc depicted inac- curately, inappropriately and consequently devalued. When devaluation reaches a certain level, violence against wom- en is tolerated. Eventually women arc essentially turned into sex toys. Society needs itself; otherwise it is going to Nature Nurture, the urban consultant program directed by Wade, seeks to correct this societal problem. The pro- gram studies the impacts rap has on people. Pom is already a big industry; rap simply uses Ihc same methods. As a result, Communicator flooded with awards sexual predators arc often glo- Young girls are socialized into believing what they see and hear. What they arc see- ing and hearing is describing women as worthless, weak and only important when almosl naked. There is a direct re- sult on girls' body images and what is depicted in music vid- eos. Wade mentions lhal the FCC is doing its best at keep- ing negative songs and videos off the mainstream air, but il is not completely successful. Editing songs is difficult and as Smiley mentioned, children can find ways around parental filters. Also, some parents jusl are unaware. Nature Nurture is making "a plea out to con- scious people" to speak against these problems. The problem is the cumu- lative effect of radio being ir- responsible, unaware parents and citizens and corporate marketing ploys. ^ By Hidi Moore Copy Editor On March 31. ihe Indiana Collegiate Press celebrated student-journalists at its an- nual awards ceremony held at Ball Slate University. IPFW's The Communicator won the distinction of 2006 Division II Newspaper of the Year, tying wilh Valparaiso University's The Torch with 52 points, which pul these newspapers far ahead of Ihc field.

The trees provide sustenance, shel- ter and renewable resources. The design for the BCC may be succinctly designed and appear bare to the average passerby, but il is packed with symbolism. In addition to the Ircc, the design will contain Ihc gold letters "BCC," sym- bolizing the richness of the African continent; red for the blood shed in the zeniih of the slave trade; and green for Ihe lush hind that remains. "The Baobab tree and our symbol stands for what society is supposed lo be about, which together as a community." said attendee Scott Smiley. Coinciding with the official unveiling of the new BCC symbol, there will also be a conference April 28 that will delve into contemporary issues facing the African-American community today.

Considering the rate of turnover at most retail and service in- dustry jobs, how can managers prop- erly train all their employees on what tn look for'.' 1 know ii seems dumb, but, believe it or not, there-are ever- cliangiug trends in shoplifting and some people |u-t don'l know what lo look for. Therefore. I think that teenag- ers should have to wail longer before having a job. say 18, and be at least somewhat compelenl at life before they take on a job involving the pub- lic. Standards should be enforced upon them and all other employees all the time so as to continue lo weed out unsuccessful people. They can even do it Trump-style if they wish. Servers in restaurants should complete idiot when it comes lo cus- tomers and service. Nol only would it probably raise their sales and the money they made for the day, but it would give the customer the feel- ing (lull they were not ignored, and I bet ihey would go back. Now with that said, I say lo the crappy service industry idiots, "Quilc frankly my dears, you're fired!"

Arts & Entertainment Kids Play and Learn at Library By Louisa Danielson Maybe you remember being a little kid, walking out of the library with ,1 stack of books propped under your chin. You lumed in a mountain of books every week - and cheeked out another pile every time. Well, the scene hasn't changed much. The Allen County Public Li- brary children's department is still full of books - some 400,000 of them. in fact, located at the main branch. Now that the library has finished its nuilii-million dollar renovation, all these books and more .ire available to the public. Librarian Mary Voors, who has worked at the ACPL for 25 years, is a pillar of the children's department. "(It's) the best place to work," she said. Librarians must have a master's degree in library science, although some librarians also have back- grounds in other fields, like cduca- "Our library system is very, very, very committed to pre -literacy," said Voors. The ACPL was one of the first libraries in the country with a chil- dren's section 1 he department origi- nally opened in 1907. The 2007 children's department was designed through the collabora- tion of children's librarians from the ACPL system and the community who were "(c)ommitled to having a very dynamic and active children's department." said Voors. hxamplesot their innovation include a gian tank system that has two salt tanks and one reef tank; a computer room; a playhouse; short shelves lor young patrons and an early learning center where children and grow interact in a learning-saturated ronmenl. "There is no technology of any kind in there,"' mentioned Voors. "(only) face-to-face interaction be- tween mom and dad and child." The early learning center is for preschool -aged children and adults. Special areas in the center include a writing center, a drama comer and many reading nooks where chil- dren can read with adults. Children are encouraged to explore narrative skills, letter knowledge, print aware- ness, print motivation, phonological awareness and vocabulary. In the past, children have done this by cre- ating alphabets, telling stories and showing interest in books. "Kids have to have (a) phonological refer- ence," said Voors, highlighting pan of the center's curriculum. In Febru- ary alone, 6,218 people visited the Center. There is no sign up sheet; however, an adult must constantly be present with his or her child.

If the musicians had had orange vests and hardhais. the music would have been a perfect facsimile of a highway repair scene with clanging metal and loud discords.
