There are roughly 6.6 billion people
in the world and millions suffer from
chronic hunger every day. On Monday
night. the UK Honors Program tried to
teach its students first-hand what that
was like for one evening.

The World Food Issues Honors
Track Dinner provided students in the
world food issues class with a real~life
example of how the world’s wealth
and food is divided.

Each student randomly drew a
piece of paper that gave them a per-
sonal story of someone in the socio—
economic class in which they were as-
signed. The wealthy. upper class got to
sit at a table and eat fast food and
drink sodas. The middle class sat in
chairs with no table and were given
medium amounts of food. The lower
class had to sit on the floor and were
given only a half cup of rice.

Before being assigned her social
status. Kimber Guinn. an agricultural
biotechnology freshman. said no matter
what class she was put in. she hoped to
gain something from the experience.

“I’ll probably take away an empty
stomach it l don‘t get my food. but
other than that. a better understanding
of world food issues." she said. “1
hope to get a better idea of how people
across the world eat."

Jake Rigdon. ‘d biology freshman.
was one of the students assigned to
represent the upper class. Rigdon said
the dinner made an impact on how he
viewed the disparities between the
amounts of food people across the

Economic struggles
create problems for
UK students

By Paul Mattingly

Keeping up with financial neWs is
not a hobby for most college students.
however. the effects of the current eco-
nomic crisis could reach all the way
from Wall Street to UK's campus.

The cuirent upheaval in the US. fi-
nancial system has caused uncertainty
across the nation after major banks and
other financial institutions have col-
lapsed and others find themselves in

A proposed government bailout bill.

on Monday. leading to even more ten—
sion on Wall Street. On Monday the
Dow Jones industrial Average was
down 777.68 points at closing. which
the. Dow Jones Web site lists as the
biggest single~day closing point drop in
the history of the DJlA.

If the stock market continues to
struggle. it could have a negative effect
on the availability of scholarship mon-
ey. Dennis Officer. an associate profes~
sor of finance at UK. said poor stock
market )crl‘ormance means endow-
meats decline. which would cause
scholarship money to decline as well.

An increase in tuition. combined
with a decrease in scholarship money
and job earnings. could make life diffi-
cult for UK students. said Joe Peek. a ti—
nance professor and the Gatton en-
dowed chair in lntemational Banking
and Financial Economies at UK.

“You‘re in the middle of the vice.
and it‘s just closing from both ends,"


Peek said.

These fac-
tors could lead
to an increase
in financial aid
from students.

George said if the cur-

cial aid applications will
probably continue to grow
each year.

The primary reason behind
the financial systems prob
lems is a large number of mott—

“Third World countries aren't the
only ones who have food problems.
the middle class has food problems
too.“ Chadwick said. "It reinforces my
view on poverty. and i realize I take
things for granted a lot of the time."

Todd Pfeiffer. a professor in the
department of plant and soil sciences.
is in his fourth year of participating in
the event.

Pfeiffer said it is important for stu-
dents to attend this dinner because it
gives them a chance to emotionally re—
late to those who go hungry.

“We‘re trying to make them feel
something and make an emotional
connection to world food issues." he
said. “Students haven‘t yet come to re-

Saban: UK defense may be nation's best

All summer, UK head coach Rich
Brooks told anyone who would listen
about his defense — a defense that
Brooks claimed would be his best during

his time at UK.

It looks like people, including Ala~
bama head coach Nick Saban. are finally

starting to take notice.

“They may be the best defensive
team in the country." Saban said. “They
have a lot of guys back from last year’s
team and are very physical and play ex-

tremely tough."

UK‘s defense is leading the nation
in scoring defense. giving up only 22
points in four games this season. The
Cats are one of just three Football
Bowl Subdivision teams that haven't
allowed a rushing touchdown this sea—
son. But it may be facing its stiffest test
yet when UK takes on No. 2 Alabama

this week.

The Crimson Tide have scored 20 or

more points in five of its games so far
and put up 41 last week against then-No.

3 Georgia.

lf UK can at least slow down the po—
tent Alabama attack. it could be, the final
stamp of approval for a defens: that has

carried the Cats thus far.

“We have been working on (our de-
senior linebacker
Johnny Williams said. "We‘re starting to
believe in ourselves and we're flouting to

fense) all summer.“

turn the comer as a defense."

“We knew it was going to tr .e all ll
of us to do well if We wanted to be com-

petitive in the SEC." he said.

Unlike the last two years. when Wes-
ley Woodyard headlined most defensive
efforts. UK doesn‘t have a standout play-
er on the defensive unit. Instead. tht ( illh
have made things a team effort to be—
come the top scoring defense in the na—


“We don't want anyone to score on
us." Williams said. “We have everyone
ninning to the ball so they can’t even get
a first down on us and we can get off the

field on third down."

The Cats will have a chance to prove
to a national audience they are the real
deal Saturday in Tuscaloosa. Ala.. as

they take on the No. l scoring offense in
the Southeastem Conference. Alabama
is averaging 37 points per game as well
as 215 rushing yards per game.

"This is an opportunity to see where
we stand in the SEC hierarchy." Brooks
said. “We’re going to find out if our de—
fense has really improved. We know it‘s
better. but is it up to SEC standards?"

The Crimson Tide feature an experi—
enced quarterback in senior John Parker
Wilson. who has recently set every ma-
jor career quarterback record at Ala-
bama. a big- -time receiver in freshman
Julio Jones and a physical running back
in junior Glen Coffee. However. none of
those three components are the main
concem for junior defensive tackle
Corey Peters.

“They will easily be the best offense
we have played this season." Peters said.
“HOWever. I'm more concemed about
the offensive line. which may be the best
line we see all year. rather than the of—
fense as a whole."

UK should put
‘green' funds
to better use

While UK‘s need to "see green" is a step in the right di-
rection. the university needs to make sure it is taking the most
cost—effective path to fund a more eco-friendly campus.

According to an article in the Kernel on Friday. the univer-
sity has taken the necessary steps to cut down energy costs on
campus. The university has staned using more energycfficient
lights in campus buildings and using more eco—friendly clean-
ing products.

"The more we can reduce, the better off we'll be.” said
Bob Wiseman, vice president for facilities management.

However, there are several questions surrounding the uni-
versity‘s initiative to pursue a more green campus. Those
questions conceming the proposal of hiring a sustainability
coordinator and the green fee that each student would have to
pay each semester to fund the sustainability efforts.

In Friday‘s Kernel article. Wiseman said the search for a
campus-wide sustainability coordinator could begin as early
as this school year. With the 6 percent university-wide budg—
et decrease that has already caused problems with hiring pro-
fessors and staff on campus. is hiring a sustainability coordi—
nator the most cost-effective route for UK to take to go

With the money that the university would use to create
this new position. why not use the resources that are already
available to the university. UK already has someone who
oversees ResLife sustainability in Shane Tedder.

According to Fridays article. UK President Lee Todd
said. "The focus is to get someone who gets up. gets out
of bed and (all day) his or her focus is sustainability."

Tedder‘s responsibilities do encompass sustainability
for ResLife. which which can go a long way toward
achieving widespread campus sustainability. While Tedder
works for the Office of Resident Life. the Kernel reported
that his duties include managing energy initiatives in doro
mitories. ResLife Recycling and Wildcat Wheels. With Ted—
der's presence. couldn‘t the money that would be used to
hiring a campus—wide coordinator be more effective if it
was used to fund ResLife-sponsored programs in the dorms
that would educate students about how to be more green?

The sole responsibility for a more eco-friendly campus
does not fall only on the university administration. Students
must do their part. which amounts to supporting the green
fee needed to fund the university's proposals. To make the
university green, students are going to have to dig a little
deeper into their wallets. The Kernel supports the idea of
the green fee. and it is necessary that students be willing to
give something. According to the article. the proposed green
fee is an amount between $6 and $8. which may be a bit
high in wake of the 9 percent cap on student fee and tuition
increase. But a smaller number should certainly be consid-

In about two weeks. Student Govemment will be present-
ed with a resolution in support for the green fee. It is impor-
tant that the resolution be specifically outlined so that students
are aware of where the green fee money will be directed.
With a clear proposal. students may be more willing to spend
their green to make UK greener.
