The Board of Regents recently approved a reconfiguration of the School of Learning Resources into the General School of Academics. This union was created in order to link a variety of institutional resources and to secure strong academic connections for the students. A key objective is to interconnect the academic programs and student services on campus. Reasons for the revision include: first, to assist in the progress and academic success of students; second, to better retain students by providing an early academic home for entering, students; and third, to provide better use of campus resources by closer coordination of academic programs and student services. Due to the open enrollment status of the college, many students come to UVSC undecided, and take too long to declare a major and complete their degree. As a consequence, many students leave before they can reach and enjoy their academic success. Both the students and the college will benefit from a more efficient use of resources, if the students are more pre- Academics" continued on pg. 3 ; "m .'

Downloading music is now enough to get one subpoenaed by the RIAA, who will look to file-sharing networks to identify individuals with large collections of MP3's. Mro)39s 11 MIA? The Recording Industry Association of America gets serious By Erin McPherson XctWiws Staff Are free downloads worth a subpoena? On June 26th, a beleaguered music and entertainment industry unveiled plans to further the war against illegal downloading and sharing of music files on the Internet. The Recording Industry Association of America (instrumental in shutting down Napster) plans to sue those abusing the Internet through piracy. It is estimated that the entertainment industry loses at least 300 million dollars every year to illegal downloading. Starting on June 26, 2003, the RIAA will look to Internet file-shar- f m p m, m I 7i i i - - ing networks in an attempt to identify individuals with larger collections of mp3 songs made available for sharing. Without indicating exactly how many downloaded songs will qualify a user to be served with a subpoena, execu tives plan to have hundreds of lawsuits seeking financial damage restitution within the next ten weeks. The President of RIAA, Carey Sherman, warns that users "are not anonymous", claiming Internet users should not attempt to use aliases to conceal their s identity, because all viola- tors will be revealed. Under the Recording Industry Association of America's new plan of action, officials will begin to gather evidence against those who participate in person-to-person sharing and "Downloads" continued on pg. 3 ImSICE Baseball is still the American past time Pg 6 What do UVSC students think about file-sharing? Pg 4 Wellness Cental : Safety Tips 1 .Tip from Tae Kwon Do: The elbow is the strongest point on your body. If you are close enough to use it, do! 2. If a robber asks for your wallet andor purse, don't hand it to him. Toss it away from you.... chances are that he is more interested in your wallet andor purse than you and he will go for the walletpurse. Run in the other direction 3. If you are ever thrown into the trunk of a car: Kick out the back tail lights and stick your arm out the hole and start waving like crazy. The driver won't see you but everybody else will. 4. Women have a tendency to get into their cars after shopping, eating, working, etc., and just sit (doing their checkbook, or making a list, etc.). Don't do this. Someone maybe be watching you, and this is the perfect opportunity for him to get in on the passenger side, put a gun to your head, and tell you where to go. As soon as you get into your car, lock the door and leave. 5. Always take the elevator instead of the stairs. 6. If the assailant has a gun and you are not under his control, always run. He will only hit you (a running target) 4 in 100 times; 7. Finally, take care of yourselves out there. Use common sense safety measures. The principle applies to men as well as women. Trustees meeting full of changes New faces welcomed, old ones bid farewell By Valerie Porter V'l.Wi'HsSliiif President William Sed-erburg wasn't the only new face at the Board of Trustee's June 19 meeting. Two new trustees, Michael Mower and Karen Ashton, were also welcomed while 8-year chairman, Wilford Clyde, and ten year vice chairwoman Marianne Heaps said their goodbyes. Sederburg recently arrived from Michigan to UVSC, at a pivotal time of change and growth. "There's been a lot of change this year, but there was a lot last year, when we added five new deans. It's just indicative of how fast this thing is growing." said vice president Brad Cook. Sederburg has been eager to meet with the students and faculty of the college, as well as the community.
