“Gender equity. Take two steps back and
analyze the system instead of ‘he said, she
said’,” said jeannine Blackwell, a panelist in
last night's UK Speaks Out town meeting.
“\Ve put people into boxes, and the sooner we
stop, the sooner we will have gender equity.”

About 35 people attended the forum, the
second in a discussion series of five sponsored
by Student Activities Board, Student Govern—
ment Association and the Faculty Senate.

“Many times discussions about gender turn
qpickly into male bashing sessions. How can
t is be avoided or can it be avoided?” began
moderator David Stockham, dean of students.

The audience responded intensely to the
issue of “gender bashing,“ with both male and
female members taking a stand. Women’s
studies classes at UK were brought up in rela—
tion to male bashing.

“In women’s studies classes, women have an
outlet to voice their 0 inion,” said panelist
Sara Vowels, an LC . art administration

Clayton Sandford, an arts and sciences

so homore, suggested political motivation is
behind the introduction ofwomen's studies in
order to make the universities appear progres-

“Male bashing is a good way to shut people
up,” Sandford said.

Blackwell said women's studies are impor-
tant in understanding women‘s herita ’e
because, “the record of male studies is t e
record of civilization.“

The second question addressed was that of
women in sports.

Stockham asked why women's sports didn't
get the attention that men's sports do.

“In terms of resources, more money is
spent on men’s sports, and it has to do with
history," said panelist Roy Moore, associate
dean of graduate studies in the College of
Communications and Information Studies.

Industries that promote women such as
Nike and I‘ZSPNZ were mentioned as pro—
women, however some panelists blamed the
media for the lack of women's coverage.

“What's in it for me and how much money
is it oing to make me?" is what Vowels said
she t inks the media says.

ator said media blame is unrealistic because of
ratings systems.

Yet Blackwell is astonished at the increase
of women's sports compared to pre-Title 9
times. Title 9 states that for every men's sport,
there must be a comparable women's sport
with the same amount of scholarship money
and equal facilities.

‘ llow changing ender roles are affecting
the 1990s, the fina question asked by Stock-
ham, gained the most emotional response.

Nancy Ray, a panelist and UK lawyer, said
the issue of two career couples applies to more
than just changing women’s gender roles.

“Lawyers in rivate practice are introduced
to quality of lifi: issues, with the dissolution
identified, the realization that it’s not a prob-
lem for women alone," Ray said. “We need to
maintain the core value system that permits
people to have a life."

The anned forces were mentioned as part of
changing gender roles and the comment that
men are physically superior to women was
thrown out for discussion by Sandford.

“\Ve’re not talking about fighting with
sticks, intelligence is going to become more
and more dominant," Blackwell said.

PI‘OIBSSOI‘ to discuss reducing stress with meditation

By Mal Horton
Features Editor

Stress and college are kissing cousins, and stu-
dents are often stuck somewhere in between.

University of Louisville psychology Professor
Paul Salmon will give a lecture titled, “Working with
Stress and Pain Using Mindfulness Meditation,” to
help provide solutions to this foe.

T e lecture is free for the public and will take

lace tomorrow at 7:30 pm. in 115 Health Sciences
arning Center.

Salmon, who also directs the U of L Health Psy-
chology and Stress Reduction Center, will discuss
the studies he has conducted himself, and with other
researchers in the field, regarding the use of medita-

tion in relieving stress.

The premise behind mindfulness meditation,
Salmon said, is to make a person focus deliberately
on the minor daily events.

“It’s to help people really pay attention to
moment-to-moment experiences,” said Salmon, who
has done research in stress and anxiety for about 10

“What's happening right here, right now often
gets overlooked.”

Up until four years ago, he said, most of his work
dealt with musicians, who perform constantly under
stressful situations.

He has written two articles, one set to appear in
the health and Behavior Change, and the other titled
“Notes from the Green Room,” co-written by col—






league and clinical psychology Professor Robert
Meyer, that covers performance stress and anxiety.

Salmon said he turned his attention toward “fami-
ly and job-related stress, and how they really add to
the pressures people cope with."

Jon Kabat-Zinn, a professor at the University of
Massachusetts Mindfulness and author of the 1990
book Full Catastrophe Living, has done some early
research on this meditation with Salmon at the Mas-
sachusetts Stress and Pain Clinic.

Salmon said mindfulness meditation can be
approached in several ways — among them sitting,
which he describes as “a way of just getting yourself

Lance Brunner, a music history professor and
director of the Commonwealth Fellowship Program

for Appalachian communities, said he would like to
expand the wellness program to more than just “an
employee benefit.

“Meditation is becoming more and more a tool
that everybody can use in dealing with stress and
leading a happier, well-balanced life," Brunncr said.

“Although the practice of meditation is thousands
of years old. we in the modern world are realizing
that it is still useful in bringing our lives back into

Brunner said college has the potential to turn pro—
fcssors and students into stress machines.

“The pace at which we live has become
unhealthy,” he said.

“The demands that students and faculty have is
almost a kind of mining to be stressed.”

Another interesting chapter in
the UK-LSU basketball series will
be written tonight at 8, when Dale
Brown makes his final appearance
at Rupp Arena.

Brown, the colorful and con-
troversial Tiger coach, will retire
at season's end. It brings to a close
25 years of service to LSU, as well
as several memorable moments in
a series that was hardly competi-
tive prior to his arrival.

“Being a colorful person would
epitomize what Dale is all about,”
UK Coach Rick Pitino said of his
counterpart from LSU. “You
don't know what will happen next
in a given game.”

But it has been in recent years
that the series has definitely taken
a turn toward the wacky.

Just take a look at the last three

Last year, the Cats put together
one of the most dominating first-
half performances in college bas—
ketball history, taking an 86—42
lead into the locker room. The
Cats wound up winning the game
129—97, shooting 75.8 percent
from the field for the game.

Antoine Walker was amazing
in the game, scoring 32 points and
grabbing eight rebounds.

“Our defense was kicking in
and everybody was pretty much
scoring, almost at will,” said UK
sophomore Ron Mercer. “It was
one of those games.”

“I guaranteed (before the
game) that this was going to be a
war in the locker room, this will
be a close one,” Pitino said.
“When we had that explosive first
half, it just goes to show you
nobody knows how a half is goin
to be played, or how a game wifi


In 1995, UK poured in a
Southeastern Conference-record
20 three—point baskets, including
four by Chris Harrison, en route
to a 127-80 Senior Da blowout.

Then, there was t e “Miracle
of Mardi Gras.”

With 15:34 remaining in the
game and the crowd at the Pete

Apparently, it wasn't a big
enough deficit.

UK rallied all the way back.

minute left in the game. The Cats
would win 99-95, sparking sales of
T-shirts, which read “Don't give

had to be the shorts.”

“1 don’t know which was a
more amazing feat,” Brown said

“Us getting ahead of them by
31 with that team, or them com-
ing back."

So who knows exactly what will
happen in the 88th meeting
between the two teams.

“This is a team that has put
together some great halves," Piti—
no said of LSU. “Like us, they
have a lot of sophomores playing
in positions. They’re physical.

“If they put together a 40-
minute game, they can beat any—
body in our conference.”

The coach once nicknamed “the

the end of the year, ending an era.
not only at LSU, but in the

“Dale Brown Farewell Tour”
tonight as he makes one final visit

He has also taken LSU to the

the Tigers had to beat UK — who
