Expansions meet health care needs
UNC Health Care is
increasing access in NC
By Jamie Gwaltney
Assistant University Editor

The stretch of Manning
Drive where UNC Hospitals is
located is the densest mile in
North Carolina by population,
Chapel Hill Mayor Pam
Hemminger said.
“It is almost impossible for
them to squeeze yet another
body into that campus,”
Hemminger said.
The main campus of UNC
Hospitals is 2.3 million square
feet and growing — officials
are evaluating plans for an
approximately $177 million
surgical tower.
Hemminger said the
density of the hospital campus
causes traffic problems,
especially during peak times
when shifts change. She said
Chapel Hill Transit buses
only have 84 seconds at a stop
before the buses get backed up
— so it is not feasible to add
more buses to the road.
Plans to build a light
rail system in the Triangle
would alleviate the traffic,
Hemminger said, but it would
be eight to 10 years before
construction begins. She said a
light rail system would free up
buses to travel to other parts
of Orange County, which could
transport patients to UNC
Health Care clinics outside of
Chapel Hill.

A growing system
UNC Health Care, the

health care system UNC
Hospitals is a part of, has
acquired hospitals as far west
as High Point and as far east
as Kinston in the past three to
five years, said Mel Hurston,
senior vice president of
operations for UNC Hospitals.
The system, which was
created in 1998, has built
clinics and taken over the
management of hospitals all
over North Carolina, Hurston
said.
Hurston said this growth
is driven by a need for more
health care, something that
isn’t always easy to provide.
He said a state agency
uses population studies to
understand how much health
care or how many more beds
are necessary, then UNC
Health Care applies the
information from the study to
provide the needed care.
Hurston said with the
growing locations, the system
also needs more health care
providers. He said UNC
Hospitals alone employs more
than 8,000 people.
There are certain
regulations hospitals must
meet and costs associated
with them, Hurston said,
which means it can make
more financial sense to join a
large health care system, like
UNC Health Care. Sharing
functions, such as IT, human
resources and suppliers, can
cut down on costs.
“(Meeting regulations) is a
very costly proposition and not

all hospitals can afford it, so
if they can connect with other
places and help share, to the
degree possible, some of those
resources, that can reduce cost
as well,” Hurston said.

Caring for the state
Over his almost 30-year
career, Hurston said he has
witnessed the health care
industry change, and he thinks
the industry is now headed
in a direction toward larger
networks instead of many
independent hospitals.

“We are sharing
information,” Hurston
said. “We’re learning
things together and we’re
implementing things that are
used in other industries as
well as best practices.”
Kenji Brantley, system
director of strategic
planning for UNC Health
Care, said part of his job is
understanding and planning
for the changes in health care
across North Carolina.
“You’ve got an aging
population that is increasingly
sick or has different health

challenges,” Brantley
said. “You have a growing
population. You have changes
in how hospitals and doctors
are paid for the care they
provide. You also have an
increasing focus by everyone
to provide care better, with a
higher quality at a lower cost
in a way that creates wellness
and just well being for the
patients.”
Brantley said the growing
network of UNC Health Care
has allowed them to change
how they help people and
provide care. He said UNC

Health Care isn’t waiting for
patients to come to them —
they have worked to increase
accessibility for citizens across
the state.
“We have this network
now across the state where
patients who live in rural
North Carolina communities
— who may otherwise not
have access to cutting edge
cancer care or a renowned
vascular surgeon or may
not be able to access those
types of physicians — well,

Economists question Trump plan figures
Plan moves corporate tax
from highest rates to one
of the lowest in the world.
By Luke Bollinger
Staff Writer

Republican presidential candidate
Donald Trump touted his plan for
stimulating the economy and cutting
taxes in last night’s debate — but
the nonpartisan Tax Foundation has
called into question Trump’s positive
predictions.
Trump’s path for the economy
— originally outlined in his speech
at the New York Economic Club
on Sept. 15 — focuses on cutting
taxes for all incomes, lowering the
corporate income tax and decreasing
government regulations.
Michael Walden, a professor of
economics at North Carolina State
University, said Trump’s plan is
grounded in supply-side economics.
“This is not a new concept — this
has been around at least 40 years,”
Walden said.
During his speech at the Economic
Club, Trump said his plan would
create an average Gross Domestic

“(Supply-side economics) is not a new concept — this
has been around for at least 40 years.”
Michael Walden
Economics professor, North Carolina State University

Product growth of 3.5 percent each
year for the next 10 years, while
adding 25 million new jobs to the
economy.
Walden said presidents usually
have a modest impact on the
economy during their time in office.
“Think of the economy as a $19
trillion ocean liner out there, and
what the presidents and congresses
can do is kind of nudge it one way or
the other,” he said.
According to an analysis of Trump’s
plan from the Tax Foundation, the
tax plan would increase GDP over the
next 10 years by 6.9 percent or 8.2
percent. The Tax Foundation offers
two estimates because the new tax
plan does not clarify whether certain
small businesses would be taxed as
corporations or individuals — a point
of contention on both sides of the
aisle.
Trump’s plan includes reducing
the current income tax brackets from
seven to three, with lower tax rates

for all incomes.
According to the Tax Foundation
analysis, although after-tax incomes
of all groups would increase under
this plan, the top earners would
benefit the most. Currently, the top
tax bracket is taxed at a rate of 39.6
percent, but this rate would decrease
to 33 percent under Trump’s plan.
Trump also proposed lowering the
corporate tax rate to 15 percent from
35 percent.
“The corporate income tax is a
substantial burden on investment
in the U.S.,” said Alan Cole, an
economist at the Tax Foundation’s
Center for Federal Tax Policy, in the
report.
According to the report the
current rate is the highest in
developed world, but the proposed
15 percent rate would make it one of
the lowest.
The report also noted the new
plan, accounting for economic
growth, would reduce government

revenues by between $2.6 trillion
and $3.9 trillion.
Walden said politicians often
overstate the impacts of certain
policies. But if Trump were elected
president, this plan could be used as
a starting point for negotiations with

Congress, Walden said.
“It would probably be fair to say
that most economists would say that
Mr. Trump’s plan, in terms of results,
is overly optimistic,” Walden said.

Intelligence director N.C. ranked fifth for gender wage gap
Lower paying jobs may
discusses transitions have contributed to
Clapper encouraged the crowd
to pursue intelligence careers.
By L’erin Jensen
Staff Writer

James R. Clapper, director of National
Intelligence, discussed issues surrounding
presidential transitions and problems
managing intelligence in an unpredictable
society at UNC on Tuesday.
The event was held in the Koury
Auditorium at the Kenan-Flagler Business
School by the Peace, War and Defense
department.
Clapper, who is the principal intelligence
advisor to the president, began by discussing
challenges associated with presidential
turnover — which was prominent when
Harry Truman assumed office.
Clapper said Truman wanted his

successors to be better prepared than he
was because Truman knew nothing of the
existence of the Manhattan Project, despite
being vice president to Franklin Delano
Roosevelt.
Because of Truman, each major party
presidential nominee now receives selected
daily briefings on intelligence information,
Clapper said.
“The day after the election, the briefing
process I just described changes,” he said.
Clapper said the president-elect will then
receive President Barack Obama’s brief.
“I’m glad (Truman) made that generous
decision to better prepare his successors,” he
said.
After Clapper finished discussing the
beginning of presidential transitions,
he shifted to modern problems facing
intelligence.

the wage gap decline.
By Grant Masini
Senior Writer

The gender pay gap in North
Carolina is one of the smallest
in the nation, but under current conditions it won’t close
anytime soon — perhaps not
until after 2100.
According to The Simple
Truth About the Gender Pay
Gap, a report from the American
Association of University
Women, the United States will
be achieve pay equity in 2059 if
current rates of change continue.
But the rate has slowed since
2001, and by that slower rate,
the gap won’t close until 2152.
“North Carolina ranks fifth

out of all states, but still has an
86 percent pay gap,” said Kate
Nielson, state policy analyst for
the AAWU. “Even though it’s
comparatively good, it’s still a
real problem.”
Nielson said closing the gap
would mean valuing women’s
work in a way the U.S. doesn’t
necessarily do at the moment.
“It would mean tackling
occupational segregation, getting more women in STEM and
wage discrimination, among
other things,” she said.
In North Carolina, about
two-thirds of women are breadwinners for their families and
therefore play key roles in the
state’s economic stability, said
Jocelyn Frye, senior fellow at the
Center for American Progress.
“There is a common interest
in making sure women are paid
fairly because that makes the
difference in whether families

TLC

are making ends meet,” she
said. “So the narrative that this
is solely a women’s issue isn’t
accurate — pay discrimination
isn’t just about one segment of
the population.”
Frye said she thinks these
issues are particularly important in North Carolina and for
university students.
“The reality is students are
grappling with the future, work
opportunities, student debt
and beginning to start their
families, and the wage gap can
mean lost earnings and income
that’s important to young people and families as they try to
make ends meet,” she said.
Among UNC federal aid
recipients, the average gender
wage gap 10 years after enrollment was over $15,000, according to a study by the Center for

Kylie Lip Kit: 10/10, would buy

Staff Writer

I have wanted a Kylie Lip
Kit since the release months
ago, but I needed an excuse to
order one.
That excuse came when I
received an email from Kylie
Cosmetics telling me that
there would be one day of free
shipping.
My mom told me she
would disown me if I paid
over $30 dollars for a
Kardashian/Jenner product,
but without shipping they
were $29. Boom.
I ordered my Dolce K lip
kit to the laughter of everyone
around me and with no
knowledge of how to apply
liner or matte gloss. I literally
have no idea what I’m talking
about. I just like to keep up
with the trends (and the
Kardashians).
The packaging was, as
expected, flawless. The

signed by Kylie herself!
Not actually. But it’s a nice
idea.
Actually, applying the lip
kit was difficult. I didn’t know
where to put the liner exactly,
but I felt like it was too basic to
look up a YouTube tutorial.
In the end, I went a little
outside the edge of my lips to

give a ~~plumping effect~~.
The gloss was easier to apply.
It dried pretty quickly, but the
packaging recommends only
one coat.
Dolce K is a darker nude,
so it wasn’t anything I was
used to. It was outside my
comfort zone, but in a good
way. I literally felt like Kylie.
As far as effectiveness,

the stuff lasted ALL night.
I brushed my teeth, drank
various liquids (lol) and it was
still there when I got home.
Note: I didn’t have the
opportunity to test the Lip
Kit’s kissability. No comment.
Someone else can write that
blog.
As a Kardashian/Jenner
super fan who knows little-

to-nothing about makeup,
I would give the Kylie Lip
Kit a 10/10. The packaging,
application and wearability
were better than expected.
But what do I know?

UNC is doing a study on millennial friendships
By Betsy Alexandre

Ever wonder how you

for a Millennials Friendship

designed to learn about the real
experiences of college students
through the eyes of their close
friends. We predicted what
these findings will be.

Instagram is so much more
than just a forum for sharing
overly edited pictures.
It’s actually a vital tool for
honesty in your friendships.
All it takes is a quick little
tag in the comments section,

and you’ve confronted your
buddy with a real truth bomb.
Instagram tagging is to 2016

Netflix and Chill relates
more to your relationship with
your bestie than it does to your
relationship with your bae.
Movies are great. TV shows
are great. Netflix is the major
mecca for both, and, yeah,
when you’re watching it, you
do like to be chill. Please stop
with all this tongue-in-cheek
sassiness about what it means
to Netflix and Chill, because
you and your bestie literally

basis. In fact, watching TV
together is the best passive

You have an incredible
number of low-quality photos
together.
The invention of the camera
phone and the subsequent rise
of Snapchat are responsible
for this phenomenon. You
sometimes find yourself
looking through old picture
albums of your mom in college,
running through leaves with
her pals, looking well-coiffed
and carefree in a wonderfully
curated way. And when this
happens, you lament the
fact that the majority of the
pictures of you and your

Speaking of, you definitely

refer to yourself as a squad.
Taylor Swift changed the
face of friendships forever by
basically copyrighting the term
squad and applying it to her A+
posse. Swift’s squad is literally
a model squad (because they
are all models, get it?). You feel
a little weird about it, but in
2016, “friend group” is totally
out and “squad” is totally in.
Love us or loathe us,
millennials know how to do
friendships the right way.
Basic as we may be, we show
our affection via lighthearted
GroupMe banter and extended
Snapchat streaks.
So keep it up, millennials
of Chapel Hill, and remember
to show your squad some
appreciation on this hump day.

Low-income ‘Some people don’t feel safe’
families need
help buying
diapers
Diaper Need Awareness Week will
run from Sept. 26 to Oct. 2.
By Lauren Talley
Staff Writer

Diapers are a necessity for every child, but they
can’t be purchased by low-income people using
WIC vouchers or food stamps.
Eighteen percent of children in Carrboro come
from low-income families, and the cost of their
diapers can cause financial difficulties.
Last week, the town of Carrboro issued a proclamation to highlight Diaper Need Awareness Week.
“The North Carolina Diaper Bank approached
the mayor about issuing a proclamation to support
their work in the community,” said Damon Seils,
member of the Carrboro Board of Aldermen.
Michelle Old, executive director and founder
of the Diaper Bank of N.C., said her organization
works closely with families in poverty by
distributing diapers through organizations that
help low-income families.
“The main reason for that is we feel very strongly
that if a family is struggling for diapers then they’re
struggling with other needs, and we really want
them to connect to programs that can help them in
other ways such as getting them food, getting them
a stroller, getting them a high chair,” Old said.
Troy Moore, spokesperson for the National
Diaper Bank Network, said 32 governors, one
state legislator and 92 cities and counties —
including Carrboro — are recognizing Diaper Need
Awareness Week through proclamations.
“We know 5.2 million children under the age of 3
live in poor and low-income families in the United
States,” Moore said.
Moore said the lack of diapers can keep families
from going to work or furthering their education.
“Diapers are integral to childcare,” Moore said.
“If parents are continuing their education or
working a full-time job, day cares require that you
have a daily supply of diapers. If you don’t have
diapers, you don’t have day care. If you don’t have
day care, you can’t go to work, you can’t go school.”
Old said 78 percent of clients that receive diapers
through the Diaper Bank of N.C. are working
between one to three jobs. She said many families
have to choose between buying food or diapers.
“Every time they’re going to pick food because
when you’re talking about feeding your children,
you’re going to make the diapers last a little bit
longer than you probably should,” Old said.
Old said the bank receives calls from clients of
various backgrounds.
“We get calls all the time from teachers that
cannot afford diapers, and we get calls all the time
from military families where one spouse is fighting
for our country and the other one is at home on
WIC and food stamps and they cannot afford
diapers,” Old said.
Diaper Need Awareness Week will run from
Sept. 26 to Oct. 2.

Susan King, the Dean of the School of Media and Journalism, speaks on the steps of Carroll Hall at the First Amendment Day opening ceremony.

First Amendment Day held panel on trigger warnings
By Brinley Lowe
Staff Writer

Student panelists debated if UNC should
support trigger warnings, safe spaces and
regulation of free speech on First Amendment
Day at the panel “Trigger Warnings, Safe
Spaces and ‘Special Snowflakes.’”
Panelist and third-year law student Caleb
Johnson said everyone is a minority, even if
their minority status is being left-handed.
“Can we as an institution be sensitive to
every minority, every feeling, every possible
offense out there without binding and
shackling the free flow of ideas that make
these institutions great?” he said.
Emily Yue, assistant opinion editor of
The Daily Tar Heel, said saying everyone is a
minority is problematic because people have
sensitivity issues beyond minority status.
“I don’t feel super comfortable comparing
people who are left-handed to, say, black
Americans because left-handed folk aren’t
criminalized for being left-handed,” they said.
Panelist Cara Pugh, co-chairperson of the
UNC Student Government Multicultural
Affairs and Diversity Outreach Committee,
said minority status and being historically

oppressed are different.
She said a lot of people do not like the word
“privilege” because they think it is a bad thing.
She asked audience members if they had
certain privileges like being able to walk to
Franklin Street without having to think about
the Confederate monument Silent Sam.
“The question of a safe space has to go to
people that do feel unsafe for many of those
privileges that they’re lacking,” Pugh said.
Panelist Brooks Fuller, a Ph.D. candidate in
the School of Media and Journalism, brought
context to the origins of safe spaces and
trigger warnings.
Fuller said trigger warnings started to help
rape victims and soldiers with post-traumatic
stress from reliving their negative experiences.
He said safe spaces were started by LGBTQ
communities as a place where they could be
themselves in the 1970s and 1980s.
“I’m not sure if in the trigger
warning debate, it’s so much about
accommodating minority status as much as
it is accommodating power imbalance and
correcting power imbalance,” he said.
Pugh said she thinks it is acceptable for
participants in social movements to not talk
to the media, but she thinks most students

“The question of a safe space
has to go to people that do
feel unsafe...”
Cara Pugh
Co-chairperson of MADO

involved think media coverage is important
for these movements.
“It’s unfortunate if media misquotes or
doesn’t depict the story in the correct way, but
we’ve seen time and time again for civil rights
movements and for other movements to go
further, media was definitely involved and
media was definitely needed,” she said.
Pugh said UNC was created as a safe space
for white men.
“That might explain why some people don’t
feel safe in this space,” she said. “Because it
wasn’t initially made for them. They had to
make their way and it was difficult and it was
tiring. And learning about that history won’t
solve all our problems, but it would at least
give you an understanding of where others are
coming from.”

Now, police have released a new
3-D composite photo in hopes of
finding her killer.
The composite was introduced
on Friday night’s episode of 20/20
titled, “Love, Hope and Faith,” which
attempted to provide new clues to
bring Hedgepeth’s attacker to justice
once and for all.
The episode begins at 2014’s
spring commencement in Kenan
Stadium, where Hedgepeth was
supposed to be, dressed in a
Carolina blue cap and gown and
accepting her degree.
Throughout the 40-minute
episode, 20/20’s Ryan Smith retraced
Hedgepeth’s fateful night, painting
a picture of what happened, where
things become unclear and naming
people of interest in the investigation.
From there, police officers held
interviews with family members,
friends, police officers and private
investigators to attempt to fill in the
blanks.
It wasn’t until the end of the
epsiode when the new composite
of Hedgepeth’s alleged attacker was
introduced.
The composite, produced by
Virginia-based Parabon NanoLabs,
used semen from the crime scene to
produce a facial replica of what the
assailant might look like.
The program, called Parabon
Snapshot, produces a detailed report
which includes eye color, skin color,
hair color, face morphology and

detailed biogeographic ancestry.
The Snapshot produced in the
Hedgepeth case reports that the
assailant is most likely a Latino
male, stating with 85.7 percent
certainty that his skin color is dark
to light olive, he has brown or hazel
eyes, black hair and has zero to very

few freckles.

Duke Energy agreed last week
to pay a $6 million settlement to
the North Carolina Department
of Environmental Quality for
multiple violations of the federal
Clean Water Act.
According to the settlement,
Duke Energy will pay $5,983,750
for spilling almost 40,000 tons of
waste into the Dan River in 2014.
The utility company will also pay
$16,250 for five other unauthorized
discharges of wastewater that came
after the 2014 spill.
In a statement released after
the settlement, Duke Energy said
they are accountable for what
happened.
“This agreement is another
important step in bringing the
accident and its aftermath to a
close as we continue working
to safely close all ash basins in
ways that protect people, the
environment and customer
pocketbooks,” the statement said.
Dan Crawford, director
of governmental relations at
the North Carolina League of
Conservation Voters, said he is not
satisfied with how the situation
was handled.
“It’s good to be a multi-billion
dollar company in North Carolina
because you get to call your own
shots,” he said.
“The DEQ has protected
polluters more than they have
the people, and people need to be
paying attention to that.”
Crawford said the public should
be concerned with the coal ash
ponds at other Duke Energy plants.
“The Dan River site will be

cleaned up,” he said. “But then
there’s a lot of options up in the air
for the remaining sites, and I think
that’s what people need to keep
their eye on to make sure they’re
clean.”
Crawford said one option is
to drain and cap the coal ash
ponds, which could lead to more
contamination because some waste
would be left in the ground.
Catawba Riverkeeper Sam
Perkins said the Dan River spill’s
environmental effects can still be
seen.
“You can still go to the Dan
River and you can find ash — it’s
easy to find, you can see it miles
downstream still,” he said.
Duke Energy’s statement said
the Dan River is thriving.
Perkins said he was
disappointed with the settlement.
“What would be fair is to require
them to clean up their mess,” he said.
“Less than 7 percent of what was
spilled has actually been cleaned up,
so that will continue to be churned
up and moved downriver.”
Perkins said companies should
be forced to change their behavior
instead of paying fines for violating
environmental standards.
According to a statement
released by N.C. DEQ, Duke
Energy must close the coal ash
ponds at the Dan River site by Aug.
2019 and close all of its coal ash
ponds by 2029.
Perkins said North Carolina was
lucky the spill happened at the Dan
River plant since the surrounding
areas are not densely populated.
He said he’s concerned about other
Duke Energy sites.
“All 14 of these sites around
the state have the same problem,”
he said. “They’re on waterways,
they’re unlined, they’re leaking —
they’re getting old and starting to
fall apart.”

Professor is bringing computers to life
A UNC professor
teaches computers to
recognize landmarks.
By Lorcan Farrell
Staff Writer

This is part of a series of
profiles on professors doing
interesting things across
UNC’s campus.
Computer science professor Jan-Michael Frahm is
teaching computers to see.
Frahm is the head of the
3D Computer Vision group
at UNC. Computer vision
focuses on teaching computers to learn and gain information from images. Frahm uses
images already posted online
in his research.
“The goal is effectively to
make the computer see, to
understand the images as we
would understand them when
we look at them,” Frahm said.
One of the most recent
projects Frahm worked on
involves using computers to
recreate models of famous
landmarks around the
world. Working with UNC
researchers Jared Heinly
and Johannes Schönberger
and Enrique Dunn, a professor at the Stevens Institute
of Technology, Frahm created software that processes
images and turns them into
3-D recreations of landmarks
around the world.
“A lot of the work we’ve
been doing is taking images
from the internet and
rebuilding a virtual model, a
3-D model of the site,” Frahm
said. “We took 100 million

“...and turn this
effectively into a
virtual version of
the real world.”

images that Flickr or Yahoo
released and turn this effectively into a virtual version of
the real world.”
Right now the project is
in its early versions, but the
group sees it having many
uses in the world — from civil
engineering to video games.
“The uses of this technology are almost endless, as the
number of cameras around
us is always increasing, and
3-D reconstruction software
provides the means for computers to make sense of our
three-dimensional, visual
world,” Heinly said.
Frahm has also done
research into the possible
harmful applications of computer vision. He worked
alongside computer science
professor Fabian Monrose
and research assistants Yi Xu
and True Price to find a way
to bypass facial recognitionbased security software by
creating a 3-D model of a person’s face using photos found
online.
“We want to show where
the flaws lie right now so
people can develop systems
that actually are not vulnerable to these problems,”
Frahm said. “The problem is
there is wrong assumptions in
the security systems on what’s
hard to do and that’s why

Professor Jan-Michael Frahm is the head of the 3D Computer Vision group on campus that teaches computers to learn from images.

they fail. They make unreal
assumptions of the attack.”
Frahm said this work
doesn’t address hypothetical
situations.
“Google yourself and go to
images, and at least for all the
members here in the group,

we find plenty of photos that
we have been in that you can
just download from Google
and it only takes a few,” he
said. “There is a real problem
for that happening in the long
run for sure because we all
have all the images out there

of us and you can use those.”
Now that the technology
is accessible to anyone who
studies computer vision,
Price said, it is only a matter
of time until it is available on
the black market.
“That’s the thing I think is

most scary for security really,
the thing is like you can go
out and buy software in the
market from someone who’s
already solved this problem
for you,” he said.

Wake County will have a building for suspended students
Extended suspension
programs can
segregate students.
By Carina McDermed
Staff Writer

The Wake County Board
of Commissioners voted
last week to purchase a new
building in Raleigh for suspended high school students
with disabilities and behavioral problems.
The new building will
be home to Wake County’s
Infinity Program, an alterna-

tive learning environment
for students suspended from
school for at least 11 days.
James West, chairperson
of the Wake County Board
of Commissioners, said the
board decided to pay $2.1
million for the building
because it will address disparities that arise in a large
school district.
“In a school system like
Wake, many students, especially minority and poor students, have some real problems as it relates to suspensions and staying in school,”
he said.
Betty Parker, director

of real estate services for
the Wake County Board of
Education, said renovations
are set to begin next fall and
the facility will be ready at
the beginning of the 2018-19
school year.
She said the Infinity program is currently located in
two classrooms in the basement of the Longview School
in Raleigh, and the new facility will hold 60 to 80 students.
“There are a number of
these smaller programs that
have been constrained by the
spaces they’re in because of
the growth we’ve had in our
area,” she said.

But Larry Kortering, a
special education professor at
Appalachian State University,
said alternative suspension
programs can unnecessarily
segregate students.
“There’s a strong federal,
state and social preference
for these kids to be with other
kids as much as possible,” he
said. “It’s borrowed from the
civil rights era that whenever
you separate people based on
a disability … there’s an inherently unequal facility or an
unequal service.”
Kortering said sometimes
extended suspension programs
are used to separate low-

achieving students to make the
main school look better.
“School performance is
a big deal in here in North
Carolina, because the general
public gets access to test score
information,” he said. “If you
get rid of your lowest five
percent of test scorers, your
school is going to do better.”
Parker said the Infinity
Program serves students who
require a selective environment and additional staffing.
“These are not high school
students that are merely
suspended,” she said. “These
are high school students with
specific disabilities and learn-

ing issues that require a different type of facility.”
Kortering said alternative
suspension programs are
effective if they offer students
alternative resources unavailable in a traditional setting.
“Whenever we separate
kids, based on race, gender
or disability, we have to make
assurances that what we offer
them is going to take them
to a better place than the
traditional services,” he said.
“Otherwise, if we are preparing them for a real world, they
need a real classroom.”

Library station is a vending machine for books
The station houses
bestselling books and
popular movies.
By Molly Horak
Staff Writer

The Orange County
Library Station, a new
machine on the grounds of
the Cedar Grove Community
Center, provides a new way
for library card holders to
access books and movies.
Jill Wagy, the systems
manager for the Orange
County Public Library system, said the library station
is the first of its kind on the
eastern coast of the United
States. It operates like a vending machine for books and
movies.
“Everything fits on a tray
inside and then the tray gets
delivered to the door and you
pick your item out and then
the tray goes back into the
machine,” Wagy said.
“It’s really a fascinating
machine.”

The idea for the kiosk came
after the closing of a smaller
library branch in Cedar Grove
due to limited usage and the
need for building repairs.
Library Director Lucinda
Munger still wanted to offer
library services to the area,
and after seeing a prototype
of the machine at a library
conference, she sent a proposal to the Orange County
Board of Commissioners. The
proposal was then approved.
Since its debut in June,
the library station allows for
24/7 access to more than 250
books and DVDs, ranging
from children’s books to bestselling novels and materials
written in Spanish.
“We’re able to get real time
data about what materials are
being checked out the most,
and we can tweak it as we go
along,” Munger said. “If we
see that there is a collection
that has really taken off out
there, we can put more of it in
the station and if a collection
is doing bad, we can reduce
those numbers and put in
something more popular.”

“I’m in touch with other librarians across the state,
and I’ve heard they are very interested in it.”
Jill Wagy
Orange County Public Library systems manager

The Orange County Library offers a new library station where
visitors can check out books. It is the first one on the East Coast.

Wagy said the collection
housed inside the library station is called a “lucky day” collection due to the fluctuation
in inventory.
“You can’t see (the inventory) in our online catalogue,
you have to go up there and
search,” Wagy said. “We have

the bestsellers and the top
movies, so the idea is when
you come up and it’s sitting
there, it’s your lucky day.”
According to the Orange
County Capital Investment
Plan (CIP), the cost of installing the library station kiosk
was $180,000 and annual

operating costs are $40,000.
Munger said these costs are
more efficient than operating
a small stand-alone library
branch at the same site.
Libbie Hough, communications specialist for Orange
County Public Library system,
said she hopes to raise community awareness about what
the library station offers.
“I think people are more
comfortable with getting
movies at this point because
that’s something they’ve done
other places,” Hough said.
“So part of what we’ll need
to do is promote our book collection that is out there more
and have folks get more comfortable with getting books
the same way that they can
get movies.”
Despite some initial
struggles due to the newness
of the machine, Wagy said she

believes kiosks like this will
become popular in the future.
“The integrated system
that runs our libraries actually made some changes on
their end because they feel
like this is going to be the
future of other libraries and
they wanted to be prepared,”
Wagy said.
“I’m in touch with other
librarians across the state,
and I’ve heard they are very
interested in it.”
Munger is excited for what
the library station means for
Orange County.
“This is there for the community, and we really hope
that people use it and provide
us with feedback on how they
like it and what we can put in
it to really make it work for
that community,” she said.

McCrory expands free trade zone, seeks to boost North Carolina exports and jobs
The application for
the zone is going to
be easier, too.
By CJ Farris
Staff Writer

North Carolina’s foreigntrade zone 214 — a free trade
area technically outside U.S.
Customs territory — was
approved for expansion last
week to include 22 counties in
the Southeast part of the state.
The governor’s office said
the changes in Zone 214,
approved by U.S. Customs
and Border Protection, were
instigated by Gov. McCrory’s

policies and will help the state
increase manufacturing jobs
and global trade.
Patrick Conway, a UNC
economics professor and
department chairperson, said
foreign-trade zones allow
businesses to import goods
without being subject to
customs taxes as long as the
goods will be re-exported.
This allows local companies to be competitive in
global supply chains, which
Conway said refers to the tendency of companies to spread
manufacturing processes
across multiple countries that
offer the lowest production
costs for certain steps.
“To compete in that global

“We are all trying to work to try and recruit
foreign investment in the area...”

Chairperson, North Carolina District Export Council

supply chain business, a firm
has to be able to import the
product, assemble or add
to the product, and then reexport it for sale elsewhere,”
he said. “If that firm has to
pay import duties, which are
like taxes on the imports and
they have to pay an export
fee or export charge on goods
that they re-export, that raises
the costs of production.”
Conway said the expansion
of foreign-trade Zone 214 will

allow more companies in the
zone to be competitive and
offer lower costs.
Wayne Cooper, chairperson
of the North Carolina District
Export Council, said a business using the zone can save
millions of dollars by avoiding
import duties — and those
lower production costs could
create job opportunities for
companies in the zone.
“We are all trying to work
to try and recruit foreign

investment in the area, and I
think having a foreign trade
zone available to a foreign
manufacturer really helps in
recruiting them,” he said.
Rick Hill, director of
international trade for the
Economic Development
Partnership of North Carolina,
said as of 2015, North
Carolina exported $31 billion
worth of goods and services,
mostly to Canada and Mexico.
According to the 2015
international trade report by
the Economic Development
Partnership of North Carolina,
state exports have increased
20 percent in the last five
years — double regional and
national export growth.

Nicole Meister, a spokesperson for the North
Carolina Department of
Transportation, the grantee of
foreign-trade Zone 214, said
the zone used to require an
extensive application process
to operate in the zone that
could take up to 18 months.
She said the new process
only subjects companies in
the 22-county region to a process measured in weeks.
The governor’s office said
the number of magnet sites —
or areas where similar businesses cluster to avoid logistical costs — will be increased
from three to six in 214.

Being a true Tar Heel is a special privilege

with special traditions rooted in leadership
and standing up for what is important. It
means being part of something that is bigger
than yourself and taking a vested interest in
others and in your community. As Alumni of
this great University, we are proud to see this
tradition continue with those brave students
who demonstrated during the national anthem
at the start of the UNC v. Pitt football game on
Saturday, September 24th--making the statement
that they will not stand for police brutality and
that black lives DO matter. We, Alumni near
and far, stand, kneel and sit with you Tar Heels,
because this is what being a Tar Heel,

Getting along with your roommate

By Audrey Wells

Here are some tips from
your fellow students on how
to handle disagreements
when they arise, and how to
avoid them the rest of the
time:

your roommate
Megan Frankena attributes
her success with roommates
to getting to know them. “We
we took the time to get to
know one another since the
very beginning so that we
now know what things are
important to them and how to

respect that,” she said.
This extends to knowing
your roommate’s schedule
and he or she knowing yours.
Adam McCoy said knowing
what to expect helped him
avoid conflict with his roommate. “We avoided conflict

eters at the beginning of the
year,” he said. “We had very
different schedules but once
we knew what to expect and
how to respect each other, our
differences weren’t really a
problem.”
Write it down
If you create a schedule
for cleaning the bathroom,
or sweeping the hallway, or
whatever it may be, write it
down.
“You say you’re going to
remember it, but you never
will,” Kaelin Kennedy said.
In her first year, she dealt
with a dispute over the cleaning schedule that she said
could have been avoided if
they had written it down. It’s
also important to place the
schedule in a prominent place
in the room or suite. Kennedy
said given the opportunity
to prevent the dispute, she
would have typed a schedule
and place it in the bathroom
where it couldn’t be missed as
a reminder to everyone.
Take the Roommate
Agreement Seriously
Former RA Winston
George encourages roommates to decide what you
expect from each other. He
said many residents look at
the agreement as a formality,
but he said many disputes
could be avoided if roommates really take the time to
set the ground rules in the
roommate agreement.
Get everything out in the
open: Morton says the worst
thing to do is to let things
build up without addressing
the issue. “Things just get
bigger and bigger until you
explode and then there is no
turning back,” she said.

UNC football faces dynamic threat in Seminoles’ Dalvin Cook
By Kirk Meyer
Staff Writer

Another week, another
game-breaking running back
for North Carolina to prepare
for.
One week after defending
Pittsburgh’s James Conner
and a month after struggling
against Georgia’s Nick Chubb,
defensive coordinator Gene
Chizik’s unit faces arguably its
tallest task yet — containing
Florida State’s Dalvin Cook.
“Those are three very quality
backs, in all different ways,”
Chizik said. “Dalvin Cook is
amazing. He’s got amazing
speed, he’s got amazing vision.
“He’s really, really good.”
Cornerback Des Lawrence
sees differences between the
Tar Heels’ past opponents and
Cook, a unanimous All-ACC
selection last season.
“They’re not as elusive as
he is,” Lawrence said. “They’re
looking to run through people
— but he’s looking to score.”
Cook, who led the conference in both rushing yards and

touchdowns in 2015, has lived
up to expectations for the No.
12 Seminoles this season.
He leads all ACC running
backs with 495 yards through
four games — including 329
yards from scrimmage and a
pair of rushing touchdowns
last week in the a 55-35 win
over South Florida.
“He’s known for a reason,”
said cornerback Patrice Rene.
“Everybody talks about him for
a reason, because he produces.”
Perhaps most worrisome for
Chizik is Cook’s explosiveness,
which was illustrated on his
75-yard touchdown dash on his
first touch a week ago.
“He’s got really good vision
and makes really good jump
cuts and cuts on a dime,”
Chizik said.
“If he makes those cuts and
you miss him, he can hit his
head on the goalpost. He’s that
fast.”
Even if the Tar Heels can
contain Cook on the ground,
he’s still a threat catching
passes out of the backfield. The
junior recorded 101 receiving

yards in the Seminoles’ 45-34
win over No. 16 Ole Miss to
start the year, and he added
62 yards last week against the
Bulls.
This could be especially
problematic for the Tar Heels,
considering Conner led
Pittsburgh in receiving yards in
last week’s 37-36 UNC win.
“Especially if we’re stopping
him in the run game, they’re
gonna try to find him on
screens and draws just to get
the ball in his hands and make
space,” said linebacker Andre
Smith, a sophomore from
Jacksonville, Fla.
Despite the pressure facing
his defense, Chizik said the
Tar Heels are ready for the
challenge and don’t plan to
alter their preparation.
“We’ve got to make sure that
we do a lot of great tackling, a
lot of great corralling the ball in
practice,” he said. “But in terms
of what we do in practice, we
won’t change anything.”
While Cook is a dynamic
talent, defensive tackle Aaron
Crawford said regardless of the

opponent, the result ultimately
falls on the defense.
“We talk a lot about faceless
opponents,” he said. “And

although he is a great talent,
that’s really all this is for us —
another faceless opponent.”
“Whether we’re playing

JMU or Florida State, we’ll
prepare the same way.”

Economic issues key to election for Carolina Economics Club
By Ivy Ingle
Staff Writer

Carolina Economics
Club’s speaker series,
running from Oct. 5 through
Nov. 7, aims to educate
students on the economic
platforms relating to the
2016 presidential election.
Srihita Bongu, co-president
of the Carolina Economics
Club, said the purpose of the
series, entitled “The Major
Economic Issues in the 2016
Election,” is to provide an
open forum that will spark

discussion about important
economic issues pertinent to
this election season.
“We’re trying to bring
back the focus to what really
matters here,” she said. “The
numbers, the facts and how
this affects peoples’ welfare
is what’s important, and I
think that would be the main
takeaway for students.”
The series is aimed to be
purely academic and nonpartisan, so attendees can
understand more about
economic policies and make
informed decisions.

“Most people don’t know
that most of the wealth in
America is concentrated in
less that one percent of the
population of this country...”
Bongu said. “And that just
goes to show the disparity
between what actually is
happening in the economy
and how much people know
about the economy.”
For their event, the
Carolina Economics Club
partnered with other campus
groups, such as UNC College
Republicans, UNC Young
Democrats and UNC’s

Public Policy Majors’ Union,
who will support the event
through publicity.
“Young Democrats thinks
that it’s really important that
everyone who votes, votes
intelligently,” said Courtney
Sams, president of UNC’s
chapter of Young Democrats.
“It’s really important as
college students that we get
informed, and this is one of
the best opportunities that
we’ve seen to do so.”
Abbey Kinnaman,
co-president of the Public
Policy Majors Union, said

the series will be a way
for students to hear from
experts and then enter into
a conversation about what
policies are important to
them.
“We hope that will spark
discussion and debate for
students … and then they
can go out and make a more
informed decision, whether
it’s one way or another,
that is less important, it’s
just getting a conversation
going,” she said.
A main speaker from the
collection of speakers is U.S.

Rep. David Price.
“Regardless of your
interest in the election or
your interest in economics,
it’s really important to
come meet representatives
because at some point in
your life, you will have an
issue that is personal that
can be solved politically, and
by networking with people
who know how to get things
done politically, you’re better
able to help yourself in the
future,” Sams said.

they now through their local
community hospital may have
a much better connection to
some of the more complex
care that we can provide here
in Chapel Hill,” Brantley said.
Brantley said it has become
increasingly important for
physicians to be available
where people are, where they
work and go to school.
He said UNC Health Care
has felt pressure to be in more
locations, which led to the
opening of the Hillsborough
branch of UNC Hospitals,

renovation at the Family
Medicine Center and the
establishment of the UNC
Health Alliance.
He said the UNC Health
Alliance is a network of over
3,500 health care providers
who work to coordinate care
for patients around North
Carolina.
Brantley said medicine
is changing to become
more community-based
and outpatient-focused. He
said health care can work
better in a community where
people have direct access to
health care and can get help
before they need to come to

a hospital.
“If we’re doing that and
we’re keeping people healthy,
then I think that is certainly
the biggest win,” he said.
Hurston said funding for
UNC Hospitals’ projects
comes from revenue from
operations and occasionally
a bond.
“We then have to note
our plan to accommodate
that growth,” Hurston said.
“We have to know how we’re
going to pay for it. We have
to know how we’re going to
accommodate them.”
Hurston said the process
of expansion can become

more complex if fulfilling
health care needs requires a
new building on the hospital’s
main campus or an addition to
an already existing building.
In that case, the hospital
has to evaluate how
construction affects taxes and
traffic patterns in Chapel Hill
— but Hemminger is already
trying to solve the latter issue.
“We are always looking to
see how we can improve our
transit system to go to the
places people need to get to for
jobs, for appointments, those
kinds of things,” she said.

require a lot of education
have been replaced by hospitality and retail jobs that
don’t pay enough to sustain
a family’s needs, and women
are more likely to be in those
positions,” Mitchell said.
Nielson said another piece
of the gap is how parents are
treated in the workplace.
“Women who become mothers are penalized in their pay

— especially single women —
while fathers tend to be paid
more,” she said. “I don’t think
women can have equal pay or
standing in this country until
we recognize that motherhood
and raising children is something we value in this country.”
Mitchell said women have
made great strides in the past
few decades, but they must
pay attention to this issue.

“If I had a baby tomorrow,
that baby girl wouldn’t achieve
pay equity until she’s in her
thirties. That will set her back,
set her family back for years to
come and affect her ability to
save for retirement and put her
children through school. We
can’t afford that in our economy and in our communities.”

CLAPPER

FROM PAGE 1

Clapper said the internet
has fundamentally changed
the work of the intelligence
community by creating an
unpredictable environment.
“If we can’t predict what will
happen, why do we conduct
intelligence at all?” Clapper
said.
For Clapper, the answer is
simple.
“We conduct intelligence at
its most basic level to reduce
uncertainty for our decision
makers,” he said.
Despite the unpredictability
of contemporary times,
Clapper said more intelligence
information should be
declassified, because the
support of the people is
necessary in order to gather
good intelligence.
An audience member
questioned Clapper about the
threat of state-sponsored cyber
attacks like the alleged Russian
hacks of the Democratic
National Committee.

Clapper said particularly
when it comes to elections,
hacking is a great concern,
but decentralized voting is a
safeguard in the U.S.
Clapper ended his
discussion by encouraging the
audience to become members
of the intelligence community,
which some students
responded to positively.
Jeremy Cleary, a UNC
junior, said his professor
emailed him about the event,
and he thought it would be an
interesting opportunity.
“I thought it’d be cool to
hear a first-hand account
of someone with so much
experience and who’s worked
so closely with the president,”
he said.
Kayla Boykins, a UNC sophomore, said she agreed with
some of Clapper’s assessments
of the secretive nature of the
intelligence community.
“I liked his point of how
intelligence needs to be more
transparent,” she said.

University of Kentucky sues student paper for record request
By Bailey Aldridge
Staff Writer

The University of Kentucky
opened a lawsuit against its
student paper in August over a
public record request from the
paper.
The Kentucky Kernel
requested information regarding UK’s investigation of James
Harwood, an associate professor accused by five students of
sexual assault and harassment.
Marjorie Kirk, editor-inchief of the Kentucky Kernel,
said the paper requested the
documents from UK, but the

university’s response did not
include Harwood’s charges.
The paper then sent in
a more exact request for
the documents. UK denied
the request, and the Kernel
appealed to the Kentucky
attorney general to ask for the
documents in redacted form.
The attorney general’s office
ruled that it could not decide
the case without viewing the
documents in question. To
object to that decision, UK
sued the paper.
This month, the attorney
general decided to intervene in
the lawsuit.

“What our portion of the
lawsuit, the complaint, is
about, is the fact that we have
the statutory ability to review
records to make decisions in
open records cases and the
university refused to give us
the records,” said La Tasha
Buckner, the executive director
of the Office of Civil and
Environmental Law in the
attorney general’s office.
Frank LoMonte, executive
director of the Student Press
Law Center, said a lawsuit like
this is extremely rare.
“It’s really intimidating
for a student publication to

be facing the potential of
financial ruin by having to
defend against a lawsuit from
a university with unlimited
financial resources,” he said.
“It’s almost unprecedented
for a university to take such
an aggressive step, especially
where the state attorney
general has already given an
authoritative interpretation.”
Kirk said the documents
were eventually given to
the Kentucky Kernel by an
anonymous source related to
the case, but UK is still suing
the paper to repeal the attorney
general’s decision.

She said she believes the
paper is in the right.
“I think these documents,
without them, people would
have no idea what Harwood
did, they would just have no
way of proving it,” she said.
UK spokesperson Jay
Blanton said releasing the
documents would violate
victims’ privacy.
“The issue really at hand is
a disagreement over what can
remain private, and we believe
that only the victim has the
right and the perspective to tell
their story,” he said. “We don’t
think that lies with the media,

or with another student or

a stalker.”
LoMonte said most public
records cases err on the side of
disclosure.
“The idea that this particular
investigation is none of the
public’s business is awfully
hard to say with a straight face
in the year 2016,” he said. “So, I
think they’ve picked a uniquely
poor case on which to prove
their point and that makes you
wonder if there is some other
agenda here.”

#tbt: September throughout history Chapel Hill open
data site is live

By Davis Rhodes
Staff Writer

The Open Data
project promotes
transparency.

A lot has happened this
month, but September has
been busy in past years, too.
Here’s a glimpse of what life
was like on the Hill — and
away from it — in history.

2015: Folt in Sweden
Carol Folt and UNC professors discussed black holes with
Stephen Hawking in Sweden.
Folt and some of the
University’s astrophysics
professors spent a week in
Stockholm, Sweden, to attend
the Hawking Radiation
Conference.
Hawking gave a lecture on
Quantum Black Holes, and
Folt gave opening remarks
before his speech.
Laura Mersini-Houghton, a
professor in the Department of
Physics and Astronomy, played
a big role in creating the conference, department chairperson Chris Clemens said.

2015: Football lost
Marquise Williams and the
Tar Heels bounced back from a
week one loss.
After a poor showing against
South Carolina that resulted in
a 17-13 loss, Williams and the
team went on to win their next
11 games (and beat Duke by 35
points).
Now, the Heels hope to
ride the momentum from
their thrilling home win over
Pittsburgh when they travel to
Tallahassee to take on Florida
State this Saturday.

UNC Chancellor Carol Folt visited Stockholm, Sweden, exactly one year ago on September 28, 2015.

2012: Charlotte DNC
Barack Obama and Bill
Clinton visited Charlotte for
the Democratic National
Convention.
The Democratic Party
formally nominated Obama
to seek a second term in the
White House in Charlotte, and
Bill Clinton made an appearance. Hillary Clinton, serving
as Secretary of State, was in
Timor-Leste at the time.
On Friday, Wendy Davis,
the former Texas state senator
famous for her 11-hour long
filibuster of a bill meant to
increase abortion restrictions

in Texas, visited the Campus
Y to campaign for Hillary
Clinton.

2009: Merkel reelected
Angela Merkel was reelected for her second term as
Chancellor of Germany
Merkel was re-elected amid
the European Union’s financial
crisis.

1389: Medici born
Cosimo de’ Medici, the start
of the Medici dynasty, was born
in Florence on Sept. 27.
Medici family members

were some of the most wellknown patrons of the arts
in Renaissance Italy — and
they’re now an obsession of
Kanye West.
“I am Warhol,” West said
in a radio interview. “I am the
number one most impactful
artist of our generation. I am
Shakespeare in the flesh. Walt
Disney. Nike. Google. Now
who’s gonna be the Medici
family and stand up and let
me create more — or do you
wanna marginalize me ‘til I’m
out of my moment?”
“How Sway!”

Teacher resigns after anti-Trump comments
One student shared a
recording from class
with their parents.
By Olivia Ross
Staff Writer

A Cedar Ridge High School
teacher voluntarily resigned
Sept. 26 after her comments
criticizing Republican
presidential nominee Donald
Trump in class went viral.
Amanda Harder, an
English Honors and AP
World History teacher,
used Trump for a classroom
example of a “master of
pathos,” explaining that
his arguments manipulate
audiences by appealing to
their emotions. The class
discussion was centered
around Greek philosopher
Aristotle’s modes of
persuasion.
“He is poking the fires
under the particular niches
of people in this country,”
Harder said in the recording.
“People who are antiMexican, people who are
anti-Muslim, people who

are anti-woman. Basically,
the only people who seem
to be safe from this guy are
white Christian males …
am I missing anything? Oh,
American — white Christian
male Americans.”
These comments, recorded
on a students’ cell phone,
reportedly angered some.
One student shared Harder’s
example with a parent. The
mother reached out to A.P.
Dillon, a conservative blogger,
who was first to break the
story.
The story was picked up
by national and international
news outlets. She said that
while the attention probably
factored into the teacher’s
resignation, the recording’s
release wasn’t intended
maliciously.
“I was disturbed to see
her tender her resignation,”
Dillon said. “In my opinion
it was not my intention to
cause jeopardy to anyone’s
livelihood.”
Policy 7720 in the Orange
County Board of Education
manual prevents employees
from using their position to
“encourage or coerce” their
views upon other employees

or students.
At an Orange County
School Board monthly
meeting Monday night,
Board Chair Stephen
Halkiotis said although the
school district encourages
political discourse, it draws
the line at explicit political
endorsement.
“While our teachers are
free to educate students
about political issues when
relevant to the curriculum,
there is a fundamental
difference between educating
and advocating; between
informing and voicing
personal views,” Halkiotis
said.
Seth Stephens, chief
communications officer for
Orange County Schools,
agreed that the classroom
isn’t a place for political
literature or discourse that
either supports or insults a
political party or position.
Dillon says although she
realizes the importance of
political discourse, she didn’t
support the conversations
that were taking place in
Harder’s classroom.
“A certain analysis of politics can be useful, but there

has to be a very careful balance of personal injection and
laying out both sides,” Dillon
said. “And it was clear she
wasn’t laying out both sides.”
According to Halkiotis,
the review of the allegations
has concluded as a result of
Harder’s resignation.

The Town of Chapel Hill
has joined Raleigh, Durham
and Cary in a national trend of
posting the city government’s
information on a user-friendly
website.
The public already had
access to the information, but
interested parties would have
needed to search through
specific departments’ databases
or make public records
requests. Now, the information
is under one roof.
It’s all in an effort to increase
transparency and the public’s
access to data, said David
Green, Town of Chapel Hill
library systems manager.
“Town Council has a goal to
improve civic understanding
and open data is a way to
achieve that goal,” he said.
Chapel Hill is paying
$15,600 annually to
OpenDataSoft, a datamanagement company, to
provide a ready-made website
that will host the town’s
information. The project,
Chapel Hill Open Data, allows
anyone to examine the city
government’s data in several
formats from tables to maps,
graphs and charts.
Chris Matthews, a senior
database administrator for
Wake County’s open data
project, said the point of open
data is to make information
available to citizens in a format
they can use.
“We take hacking and bring
it back to that civic space to
make everyone’s life better,” he
said.
Jason Baker, a Chapel Hill
resident and longtime blogger
on Orange County politics, is
already putting the city’s new
data organization plan to use.
“The project I’m trying
to build is a toolkit for
empowering neighborhoods

and other community groups
to make better planning and
zoning decisions,” he said.
Adam Martin, open data
program manager for Raleigh,
said open data websites
are also helpful to local
governments.
Open data projects help
different departments share
information and they can help
governments see where they
fall short, he said.
“If you air your dirty laundry
or dirty data, it can help
reveal gaps in your business
process,” Martin said. “The
data is not dirty because we’re
incompetent. It’s dirty because
there is much more data in the
world than we can process —
it’s about skills and priorities.”
Sharing this information can
elicit valuable feedback from
the public that can encourage
governments to improve data
collection, Martin said. There
are experts in the public sphere
that can analyze the data in
ways that local governments do
not have the capacity to do.
The big question is how to
get the data to people in the
context they want it, Martin
said. Most people will not
access the government’s information, even when it is hosted
on a user-friendly site, he said.
To solve this problem, the
city of Raleigh worked with
Google Waze to share traffic
reports and with Yelp to post
health sanitation scores on
restaurant’s pages, Martin said.
It is possible that Chapel
Hill will try to follow suit in the
future but the program is new
and has not yet moved in that
direction, Green said.
“We don’t fully understand
our audience yet — what they
want, what they need,” he said.
How the project develops
depends on support from the
city manager, funding and
feedback from the public,
Green said.
At this point, the
possibilities for Chapel Hill’s
Open Data project are as
numerous as the data itself.

LETTERS TO
THE EDITOR

Saying
no to
shit you
hate

M

NEXT

y mom tells me
constantly, “You can’t
do it all.”
She’s been saying this to me
for years — slow down, take
care of yourself, some things
will have to wait.
Of course, hearing her voice
say these things comforts me,
but often when I get off the
phone with her, the to-do lists
catch my eye again, and I’m
back to thinking I have to get
everything done within the
next day. It’s hard to let go and
let myself go to sleep.
I feel different than who I
was in high school; I tried to
do everything back then. From
prom committee to track to
student council, each activity
was an addition to my resume
with one goal in my mind: get
into good universities.
Now that I’m here, I
still feel the pressure to be
impressive, but something in
my mind clicked. You don’t
have to do activities you don’t
like anymore just to get to the
“next step.”
But then there’s the question
of the next step. Where do I go
once I’m not here anymore?
Am I doing enough to ensure
I could even get “there” if
I wanted to? Should I join
another organization, divvying
up my time further to look
more impressive? If I didn’t
like a class in high school, I
never was brave enough to
switch out of it.
That was who I was
back then, doing things I
didn’t really care about and
paying the price, which
was ultimately getting
burned out. Throughout my
semesters at UNC, I’ve given
myself time and tried out
different extracurriculars,
and given myself the wiggle
room to leave if I didn’t like
one. If I have a bad feeling
about a class on the first day,
I’ll find one that gets me
excited to learn instead of
dreading class each day.
There is an art to letting go,
of saying to yourself, “I don’t
want to do this.”
One of the best quotes from
my favorite show “Girls” is
when Hannah’s friends ask her
to go on a hike but she decides
instead to stay by the car. She
says, “It’s very liberating to say
no to shit you hate.” It’s hard
to say no, but then again, I’ve
found myself getting involved
in things I never wanted to be
a part of in the first place.
There is a certain thrill in
trying new things, things that
push you out of your comfort
zone, but at the same time,
there is grace in knowing
yourself. It’s better to recognize
the difference between what
you’ll enjoy doing and what
you think might advance
your career. In the long run,
it’s more important to give
yourself space to breathe than
to add another thing to your
plate you didn’t want anyway.
Let it go. Listen to yourself
and know everything cannot
be done in a day. Letting go
doesn’t equate to apathy; it
took me a long time to realize
that. The art is learning not to
silence the feelings that tell you
something isn’t right for you.
I want to do things that
lead me to a more perfected
passion, not an extensive
resume. I want to be free
to explore, not box myself
in for the sake of looking
impressive. I want to let go
and listen to myself more.

Intercontinental conflict
Oppression spreads
beyond any nation’s
borders.

P

olice look at you
strangely, you get
stopped randomly,
you’re treated like a secondclass citizen, and your life is
seen as either a number or
as a political pawn — we are
not only talking about black
lives in the United States,
but also about Palestinian
lives in Palestine.
Of course, these injustices
happen on much different
scales and contexts, but all
root back to living under an
oppressor. With recent events
happening in Tulsa, Charlotte,
and almost every day in
the United States, showing

solidarity and support for
Palestinian lives is vital.
Beyond just basic survival,
education is a privilege
rather than a right in both
communities. Palestinian
and Jewish children are
segregated from kindergarten
through high school, with the
Israeli government investing
more than three times as
much in a Jewish student
than a Palestinian student.
Segregation does not
exist legally in the United
States educational system,
but minority students attend
predominantly minority
schools without enough
funding, teachers or supplies.
Finally, the most basic
of basic needs, water,
is challenged if you’re
Palestinian. According to
the United Nations, 60,000

Palestinians in the West Bank
spend a sixth of their income
trucking water into their
neighborhoods. In Gaza, the
United Nations found that
about 95 percent of the water
received is polluted and unfit
for drinking.
In the United States
we can look at the water
crisis in Flint, Mich., as
the best example of how a
predominantly black town
had to suffer because of
irresponsible and racist
legislation.
The comparison of these
problems shows the similarities between two communities that are simply trying to
live. Despite being thousands
of miles away, solidarity
and support can transcend
distance to build a stronger
international community.

Nothing to hide?
Not releasing body
camera footage
only hurts trust.

acted while on the job.
In Charlotte, and in the
rest of North Carolina,
the state’s body camera
program essentially
becomes useless on Oct. 1.
In Charlotte, crucial
information is missing
from the investigation of
Keith Scott’s death because
an officer didn’t turn on his
camera at the correct time.
This mistake might allow a
man’s already unnecessary
death to never see justice.
A state law was passed
over the summer that
barred camera footage
from becoming public
record. This severely limits
the public’s ability to access

P

olice body camera
programs came
about to help
civilians and police
officers hold each other
accountable.
While cameras on
their own would never
herald an age of equitable
and positive policing —
institutional change is
needed for that — many
thought they would make
sure people could see
how the officers who are
supposed to protect them

useful information.
While there are cases
when privacy ought be
respected in terms of
police camera footage, this
blanket law creates more
problems than it solves.
It’s just another example
on a long list of legislation
coming from the North
Carolina General Assembly
that impedes on the rights
citizens should be able to
enjoy.
If Gov. McCrory and
other leaders want us
to believe the police are
on our side and are not
acting with malice, then
show us proof.
We want to see it.

TO THE EDITOR:
Your activism amplifies
the voice of the powerless,
commands the attention
of the powerful and
forces awareness on the
ignorant.
We want to take a
moment to let you know
how strongly it impacts us,
the Tar Heels who came
before you.
Most of you were
toddlers when my
classmates and I arrived
at Chapel Hill 18 years
ago. Our claim to fame
is that we were the first
to get unc.edu email
addresses and the last to
do class registration over
the phone. UNC was an
absolutely amazing place
then, but not without its
challenges. While we were
students, we demanded
recognition for the unsung
founders of the school —
the people of color whose
names do not appear
on campus buildings.
We agitated to improve
wages for housekeepers,
groundskeepers and
dining service workers. We
followed in the footsteps
of our predecessors, whose
calls for minority-student
recruitment and tuition
initiatives paved the way
for us all to call ourselves
Tar Heels. Like the students
who came before us, we
were on a crusade to make
the University a better
place than we found it.
The crusade against
police brutality is one
that spans generations.
Today’s cameras have given
mainstream America the
eyewitness validity our
eyewitness accounts never
got. Like many of you,
I’ve seen Oscar Grant’s
last moments, heard Eric
Garner’s last words and
watched Philando Castile
draw his last breath. I
witnessed Walter Scott’s
execution and followed
Sandra Bland on her last
drive. I saw Sam Dubose
get shot in the face and had
a bird’s-eye view of Terence
Crutcher’s fatal breakdown.
On Friday, watching
Keith Lamont Scott
senselessly lose his life
in Charlotte completely
knocked the confidence
out of me. How can we
verify progress when these
killings come in such
flagrantly rapid succession?
Saturday, I sat down
intending to watch my
alma mater play football
against the University
of Pittsburgh. Instead, I
watched my Carolina family
take on injustice. Following
Colin Kaepernick’s lead,
you challenged the sanctity
of a football game and had
us all rapt.
Nothing is sacred if black
lives aren’t sacred and that’s
not a matter of opinion.
You seized the opportunity
to publicly articulate that.
As your bandmates
played the national
anthem, you chose not to
play along, putting patriotic
protocol in its place —
behind social justice. As

thousands celebrated
American tradition with
song, you protested
American indifference with
the silence of Sam.
Whether you took a knee,
raised a fist or kept your
seat, you took a stand for
victims of police brutality.
You tilted the mirror on
institutional racism, and
each time anyone does that,
America gets a better look.
You agitated the satisfied
masses and restored my
confidence that progress
is in motion. With your
resolute action, your
fearless demonstration,
your unapologetic plea,
you assured us that
this injustice, the one
continuously taking black
lives, will not survive your
watch.
Personally, it doesn’t
take a die-in for me to
understand the gravity of
death, and I don’t need
signs reminding me whose
lives matter. You impact
those who need convincing
as well as those of us who
don’t. We’ve been admiring
you from afar for a while;
525 of us are revealing
ourselves now. For lack of
a lesser-used term, you are
our future.
We need to know that
you’ve got this. Thank you
for showing us that you do.

A poem concerning
the election
TO THE EDITOR:
Concerning the election,
I’ve looked in every
direction.
But when the candidates
give a suggestion,
It only gives me indigestion.
Do not be in such haste
To say my vote is just a
waste.
The privilege of voting
Is something on which our
country is based.
I feel as though I must vote
For the many who don’t
have this right,
And to honor those who
wanted it, who had to fight.
Should we not use this
opportunity for our feelings
to denote?
Despite the dissatisfaction
These candidates promote,
I can issue only this call to
action
And beg you to vote.
Recognize the privilege
You have been permitted.
Research the candidates
and at least to the idea
Of voting become
committed.
Perhaps you will find
something new
Or even an idea that makes
you stew.
Regardless, you shouldn’t
be stuck like glue
To someone on TV you only
view.
If you must, hold your nose
And make a list of cons and
pros.
Find a candidate you think
may be all right,
And pray to God we’ll get
out of this plight.
I wrote
This note
Simply hoping
You will vote.
