THE MAROON VOL. 85, NO. 9 WWW.LOYOLAMAROON.COM FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 2006 'Prowl' spreads service Loyola's fifth annual Wolves on the Prowl Day promotes volunteerism By KELLY ROTH THE MAROON While the air was still cold, about 200 students, faculty and alumni poured into the Peace Quad on Saturday morning. The day warmed up when Andre Breaux stepped to the microphone to announce the day's events. Breaux, mass communication junior and Student Government Association chair for Wolves on the Prowl, spent two months planning the New Orleans events alongside alumni chair Renny Simno. Planning activities was challenging at times, Breaux said. "We looked at past projects from Wolves on the Prowl while we were deciding what services to offer, but the service climate in New Orleans has changed so much since Hurricane Katrina," he said. "There are a lot of STEPHANIE HASSO / THE MAROON Students from Good Shepherd Elementary and Project C.A.R.E. paint and draw during the arts and crafts portion of the Wolves on the Prowl Day held Saturday, Nov. 4, on Loyola's campus.

With the help of Mark Glynn of NewOrleansßadio.com and Music Industry Studies Director John Snyder, students are able to broadcast their own radio programs on the Internet. Glynn, a part-time instructor in the College of Music and Fine Arts, put his idea of online radio to work in 1996 as a commercial venture independent of Loyola. Now the Web site is part of a nationwide network, with networks in Mississippi, Indiana and Pennsylvania, including local networks in St. Tammany Parish. As part of the Entrepreneurial Unit, a series of programs at Loyola that mimic corporations and provide students with real-world, hands-on experience, the radio is an opportunity for students to create and broadcast their own radio shows every week. The broadcasts took off earlier this semester and students have since produced four weeks of programming. "Since these shows can be distributed and aired to any online station, we try to focus on good content," Glynn said. "There is less focus on where it's being distributed. This is a great place to create content, work out the kinks and try out a non-traditional radio setup." "I found out about the program in an e-mail," said Music Industries Studies sophomore John Vo. Vo's alternative-talk program, "The Vo Show," is his opportunity to "do something different,"ALEX WOODWARD / THE MAROON Tara Curtis, music industries studies sophomore, records voice tracks for her radio program 'All the Songs in My Head.' New forum begins with creation By SALLY TUNMER STAFF WRITER A new argument in the divisive debate between evolution and creationism was presented at the first President's Forum on Current Issues and Controversies. The topic was on the question of cosmic purpose and intelligent design. The Monday night forum is one of three President's Forums scheduled for this year. The Rev. Kevin Wildes, S.J, university president, decided to initiate these forums in order to stimulate intellectual conversation around campus and in the local community. "It's my job to be the intellectual leader around contemporary issues," he said. John F. Haught was the leading speaker at Monday's forum. Haught is the Landegger Distinguished Professor of Theology at Georgetown University, and he specializes in systematic theology and is fluent in subjects of science and religion. He teaches intelligent design and believes that evolution and religion can coexist. During his lecture, Haught discussed meaning as the most important and mystical component of the universe and the way to achieve meaning is through consciousness. "Consciousness is an unquestionable source of value and purpose is the actualizing of value. As complexity has increased on earth so has consciousness," he said. Haught leaned on the teachings of prominent philosophers Bertrand Russell and A.N. Whitehead, as well as other scientists, philosophers and theologians as support for his lecture. He stressed the responsibility of humans to increase their consciousness as much as possible."The possibility of a multiverse might make the future of consciousness a more promising one by expanding one's idea of the universe," Haught said. Haught quoted A.N. Whitehead as saying, "At the very least the universe has aimed at the existence of beauty," and then said, "Purpose is the universe's aim towards beauty." The first responder to Haught's lecture was Paul A. Nelson, a professor at Biola University and advocate for intelligent design. He spoke about what attracts people to researching and adopting the theory of intelligent design. "Religion may or may not attract people to intelligent design, but before religion, it is personal agency which attracts them," Nelson said. He defined agency as the see WOLVES, page 2 see FORUM, page 3 see RADIO, page 3 — For additional coverage, see Life and Times, page 6 f Sports HVI LA v Get tips on shooting f perfect hoops. \% page 4 MAROON DIRECTORY: CALENDAR, page 2 | SPORTS, page 4 | LIFE & TIMES, page 6 | OPINION, page 10 | NEWS TIPS: 865 3535 CORRECTION: An IT employee has offered to donate $1,400 of equipment to the proposed radio station. This is not a donation from IT, as was reported last week. In the Opinion Poll, Jordan Schneider should have been quoted as saying "Something liberal. How about 'Improving the Welfare State' with Dr. Block?" We at The Maroon regret these mistakes.
