Faith beyond the fasting

Muslim community reflects. worships
during holy month of Ramadan

By Laura Clark

When Matt Longacre first read
the Quran during his senior year of
high school. it spoke to him.

“It told me about the problems
iii my life and how to solve them."
Longacre said. "God was having a
conversation with me on how to
have a better life."

The Quran. the Islamic holy
book. was a driving force behind
Longacre's conversion to Islam in
2006. Now. Longacrc. a bUsincss
management junior. has found the
Muslim community in Lexington
very fulfilling.

“Early on. I had that faith. but
I was stranded with people who
didn‘t share those beliefs with
me." he said. “Later. when I came
to UK. there were people I could
turn to."

This month. Muslims from
around the world are celebrating
Ramadan. which is considered the
holiest month of the Islamic calen—
dar. Ramadan follows the lunar
cycle and takes place in the ninth
month of the Muslim calendar.
This year the holiday began
around Sept. 1 and will end
around Sept. 30.

According to tradition. the
Quran was first revealed to the
Prophet Muhammad during the
month of Ramadan. During the
month. verses of the Quran are
read each night in prayer. By the
end of the holiday. the entire
Quran is recited.

In addition to reading the
Quran. Muslims fast from sunrise
to sunset. After sunset each day.
they break their fast with prayer
and a meal called the iftar. Before
sunrise. Muslims eat a pre—fast
meal called suhoor.

However. fasting during Ra~
madan is more than refraining
from food and drink. Ramadan is
a time when Muslims cart concen—
trate on their faith instead of the
concerns of their daily in cs.

Aun Munis. a biology senior
and the MUslrin Student Associa—
tion president. said it is easy for
people to get distracted by every
day life and Ramadan is a time to
establish a reconnection with

“Some people approach Ra-
madan apprehensively." Munis
said. “But it‘s really a time to re—
evaluate and see things in your life
you can work on."

Longacre said his first Ra-
madan was a difficult experi~

"After a while. though. I be—
gan realizing that it's more than

just going without food and wa-

ter." he said. “lnstead ofjust for-
getting about hungcr. it gave me
space to reflect."

Muslims pray five times a day:

at dawn. noon. mid~aftemoon.'

sunset and night. During Ra~
madan. an extra prayer is said at
sunset. before Muslims break their
fast. This prayer. called the
tarawih. usually lasts longer than
the normal daily prayers in order

to complete the whole book by the
end of the month.

Muslims cart pray anywhere.
but prayer usually occurs in a
mosque. which I\ an l\ltlmlC
house of prayer. In the mosque.
the worshippers stand in parallel
rows behind the prayer leader. the
imam. who directs their postures
and recitations.

The different postures. which
include standing. bowing and
kneeling. have an important effect
on a person‘s prayer life. said

Look to the past for fun,
affordable hair fashions

Being a poor college student (and that
is no exaggeration), 1 find it is often quite
hard for me to bolster my obsession for
fashion via fashion magazines with those
glossies costing $4 a pop (that‘s at least a
chicken sandwich and
a drink at Chick-Fil-
A). not to mention
Vogue Paris costing
$18 (that’s at least
two sandwiches and
chips from Jimmy
John‘s and a burrito
from C ielito Lindo).

Thus. imagine my
excitement when my
brother rerums home
from my original
hometown with two
— count ‘em. two —
issues of Elle and
Vogue from dearest Mama Lanliam (she
treats a daughter right).

Perusing those majestic pages. 1 no-
ticed a trend walking down the runways
that could easily be applied to the life of
an everyday student such as your fine
selves: hair accessories. With this in the
back of my mind as I went about my daily
business. I found I ran into real-life living
examples walking among us as if they
jumped from the pages themselves to take
our hands and guide us to a more fashion-
able path - one that has been tread be-
fore, since all of these trends have been
stolen from decades past (but don‘t won'y.
no return of the 80s sweatbaiids).

So what could I do but share my ob-
servations with those people who would
appreciate it the most (why. that's you. of
course!) So here are the trends of today
pulled from the trends of yesteryears.

18905: Bowler hats. Don‘t panic! This
trend is a little out there but worth the risk
for those willing to turn a few heads (and
inevitably roll a few eyes — some people
can’t handle too much experimentation).
Originally created to withstand great deals
of pressure without yielding one bit.
bowler caps these days are more for those
ladies that want to blur the lines of an-

Wear with: a floral dress. some


. opaque black tights and a pair of comfy

to-and—fro flats. and you‘re ready to chal-
lenge Charlie Chaplin any day of the year
(though I wouldn’t suggest the mustache).

19405: Fedoras. This one is a bit more
prevalent for us Lexingtonians and is also
for those lovely ladies ready to make a
statement. During the summer we saw the
fedora in various versions of breathable
straw, but for the fall. think dark tweeds
and suedes circa meddlesome detectives
and those two—bit. good-fa-iiothin‘ mob—

Wear with: a menswear-inspired (or a
real man‘s — Goodwill. anyone?) blazer
and a pair of dark. skinny jeans to show off
a funky style with very classic elements

19505: Flowers. Watching "Project
Runway." 1 can't deny that Kenley

Collins‘ style of red lipstick. monochro-
matic tees and signature hair pieces didn‘t
inspire myself a little bit. Mostly seen in
clip fon'n, rocking this style can be as easy
as a little flower clip to keep those bangs
out of your eyes to a bouquet of florals
pinned in to your flowing locks. Either
way. this trend gives a sweet. feminine
punch to any outfit and hails back to the
days of those fantastic pin—ups the likes of
Bettie Page.

Wear with: a basic tee and jeans for
an easy on-the—way-to-class style or all
done up with a big-collared. belted mini
dress to show the boys you're sweet but
wild at the same time.

19705: Feathers. I mentioned feathers
once before in an earlier column but had
to include it due to an unexpected boom in
the fashion world. Flower children knew
what they were doing when they adorned
themselves with all sorts of naturalist
goodies. and now they're more available
than ever. My favorite manifestations of
the feather trend are in clip fomi (which 1
happily admit. I just invested in one) to an
even more accessible version of an earthy

Wear with: anything! If you're more
interested in a daytime look. invest in a
brown or cream-colored version to match
those high—waist bell—bottoms you‘re dying
to wear, or add some punch and go for a
more fancy version with a peacock feather
to spruce up that little black dress.

1990s: Slouchy beariies. (‘an ljrist

the grunge version isn‘t making a com—
plete comeback —- not that I dislike plaid

beanies are a cool way to add ease and

all snug). ln autumnal colors such as mus—

just not your thing. try it with an t)\'t:1\1/.Cd

a iiiedium—sized brown belt to cinch your
waist to finally put grunge and Kurt
Cobain to rest.

Whether you‘re willing to make a big
statement or just add a little touch of fabu—
ious to your unifomi of jeans and a T—shin
(ain‘t notliiii‘ wrong with that). past—
decade hair accessories are an easy. afford—
able way to do so. To find these at decent
prices just look around at the nearest
Goodwill (and sanitize before use) or
Michacls. Whichever. if any: ti'cnd you
choose. make sure to find one that is true
to your own personal sty lc. since there's
nothing more fashionable than a lady
doin' her own thang.

Exhibit forges ahead
on historical fakes

By Allison Mm

Readers often take for
granted the validity of histori-
cal documents, but a new ex—
hibit at the M1. King Library
is proving that it is not wise to
automatically trust every—

The “Fakes. Forgeries.
and Piracies" exhibit. which
is being held in the King Li-
brary through mid-November.
allows UK students to ob-
serve a fake page from the
Gutenberg Bible. James
Macpherson‘s made—up trans-
lation of the poems of Ossian.
a piracy of Elizabeth Barrett
Browning‘s original 1847 edi—
tion of “Sonnets from the Por-
tuguese" and many more fa-
mous forged documents.

“It‘s a good object lesson
about how well these were
done and how people wanted
to believe there was such a
poet as ()ssian." said Gordon
Hogg. director of the King Li-
brary. “People stake their aca«

demic credentials in studying
these famous poets.“

Macpherson claimed to
have found and translated the
poet Ossian‘s ancient manu-
scripts. but his works were
discovered as a fabrication in
1805. Macpherson had actual-
ly written all of the poems in
the book that were supposed
ly by Ossian. However. he
was still widely admired by
the public for being the cre-
ator of the fake poems.

Thomas J. Wise was a
British bibliographer who col-
lected books. He prixately
printed nearly 300 works of
English authors. many of
which were found out to be
piracies. He was caught forg-
ing the works because he
printed the fakes on a type of
paper that was not yet avail—
able and used a typeface that
had not been invented at the
time the original manuscripts
were printed.

Many of these people cre—
ated forgeries for fame or
money. but others had deeper

motives in creating fake docu-
ments. said Jim Birchfield.
the curator of rare brmks at
the King Library.

“It‘s almost an aspect of
psychological control' Birch-
field said. “There's a sense of
power in making people be—

Use of smoke
in fire drills
is dangerous

Despite concerns from sttideiits and other universities. UK
fire officials w ill once again be placing a log machine in dor—
mitories for sniokc~out fire drills. according to a Kcriiel article
on Sept. l5. '

This editorial board has never questioned the desire for
niipi'oyemerits Iii studeiil safety. especially when it comes to
fire safety in dorms and campus buildings. But the continued
use of smoke for fire drills still seems incomprehensible de—
spite its intended purpose.

The purpose. as l‘K Assistant Fire Marshal (ireg
Williamson said in a Kernel article on Sept. l7. 3007. is to
make fire drills more realistic. it forces both the students and
firefighters to treat the drill like a real fire.

The concept is a novel idea. But ultimately the ends don't
justify the means. The smoke needs to be put out.

Using smoke for fire drills can cause a number of negative
consequences. First and foremost. it can become a health risk for
students breathing the air. especially those with asthma.

Smoke can also create a visibility issue. Students unable
to see'might run into objects. trip over something or even fall
down stairs. While probably few and far between. injuries are
certainly prone to happen without proper vision.

And finally. smoke will Usually create an unneeded sense
of panic. Those unaware of the fire drill will likely become
scared by the presence of smoke in their dorm rooms. which
usually creates unintended results. Students who usually do
one thing will often do another when a sense of hysteria sets

“These drills are a great opportunity to show students how
they might react in a real situation and make them think about
whether or not their reactions w ere safe." Williamson said in
the Kernel article on Sept. l5.

How else are they supposed to react‘.’ Any dangerous situ«
ation. especially one that involves smoke and fire. is going to
create panic. .ltlsl because you make students aware of their
reactions doesn‘t mean they re
