Jaywalking is in no way
condoned by the
Kernel nor will we be
responsible if you get
hurt doing so. Having
said that, I do it all
the time. Here are
some strategies, pros
and cons of the next
Olympic Sport,


Start by looking left and
only left. The
opposing traffic does
not concern you, at
least not at this
point. Crossing even
numbered lanes
above four is asking
for trouble if there is
no median or divider.
Stop crossing odd
number lanes at

Stand ready to pounce
at a moment's notice
with the speed of a
wild cheetah, or
other really quick
animal. Anticipate
the gap, but beware,
not all cars travel at
the same speed.

Take command of the
center lane if you
have to. (Actually,
this may not be good
advice seeing as l
have been clipped by
mirrors twice now.)

Run like the wind in a
hurricane to the
other side.

Now some pros and

Pro: Get to class 18
seconds quicker,
although it feels like
five minutes.

Con: Mental pictures of
Mac trucks that stay
with you the rest of
your life.

Pro: Sense of
accomplishment by
avoiding traffic.

Con: Getting hit by
traffic and not living.

Pro: Heart gets more
exercise. not just
form running to avoid
the CATS bus, but
also from the
adrenaline that
causes your heart to
race until after you
have already gone to

Con: Die of heart attack
before you get hit.

Pro: You look all big and
bad in front of
someone you are
interested in.

Con: You fall in the
turning lane. rip your
jeans and have to
limp on campus the
rest of the day.

Pro: Strengthened

Con: Tearing a cold groin

team suffered two losses

of Jules Camara's DUI of-

Felton's resignation had
nothing to do with Cama-

Camara. a junior for-

Tuesday in the Fayette

District Court by a jury of

five women and one man
on charges of driving
while under the influence
on Sept. 3. Camara pleaded
innocent to the charges.

said the guilty verdict
means Camara will lose
his basketball scholarship

Most students come to [7K
to build up their minds with
knowledge. Eric Browning did
more than that: He came to UK
and built up his body too.

Browning. a first-year den-
tistry student. is featured in the
November issue of Flex Maga-
zine for his achievements in
bodybuilding and academics.

The current copy of Flex
went out on store shelves Oct. 3.

“I had no clue that I would
be in it." Browning said.

He said his first reaction
when he received an advance
copy in the mail was shock. He
said he thought he was going to
have a heart attack.

Browning said he knew he
might be in the issue. but noth-
ing was for sure.

The aiticle contains a biog-
raphy of Browning and a pic-
ture from a bodybuilding com
petition last year.

Last November. Browning
placed sixth in the Kentucky
Body Building Championships.
He was the youngest of the 60
competitors. He said he was

the competition. because it was

Browning is preparing for

Browning enjoys working
out and also hopes that he can
continue to compete. He‘s opti-
mistic about the outcome of his
next competition.

Besides going to dentistry
school and brxlybuilding.
Browning is also a certified
personal trainer.

”I am not a personal trainer
right now becaiise I am too busy
with (dentistry) school. but I re-
ally enjoyed it when I was doing
that." said Browning.

Browning hopes to open an
athletic center and dentistry
practice after he graduates
form dental school.

Browning said that he is
receiving calls about the article
from fitness model agents that
are interested in signing him
for advertisements. He said the
calls have been flattering. and
although he does not plan to
pursue the endeavors he said
he is keeping his options open.

The pill and breast cancer linked

CHICAGO Birth control pills may raise the
already heightened risk of breast cancer faced by
women with a family history of the disease. a
study suggests. Among sisters and daughters of
women with breast cancer, users of the pill were
