Bid for House Post May Weaken Democrats' Ethics Image
"Securing pork for one's district or state is a time-honored tradition
in American politics that knows no ideological boundaries,'' says David
Primo, professor of political science, regarding a nonpartisan Congressional
Research Service that indicates this year's defense budget included
2,847 earmarks worth $9.4 billion, almost five times as many as in 1994
and twice the dollar value.

Self-Esteem Campaign Leads Girls to Question Perceptions of Beauty
A. Joan Saab, director of the graduate program in visual and cultural
studies and associate professor of art and art history, comments on
a new video by the Dove soap company on beauty and women's self-perception:
"Without being overly cynical, we can see this short film, as well
as the earlier Dove ads that use 'real' (read: pudgy) models, as part
of a larger post-modern advertising trend that attempts to undercut
the industry—in this case, the beauty industry—through a
type of exposé. These ads are meant to be subversive and ultimately
distance the company from its offending peers, while still convincing
consumers to buy its products. Will it work? We shall see."

Decline in Foreign Students Is Reversed
"The number of new foreign students coming to the United States
grew this school year, after several years of weakness that followed
the terrorist attacks of 2001, according to a survey to be released
[November 13] by the Institute of International Education."
