Just to let you all know, there's a Livejournal site with news about Asian American Alliance! :) I know you all must be fascinated...

Anyways, if you're interested in seeing what's going on, knowing what we're up to, or just needing some more to read so you can put off that paper just a little bit longer, feel free to friend CapitalUnivAAA. Or, if you don't feel like friending us, at least stop by, glance around, and pretend like you read something. It'll make us all feel better.

Thanks :)

November! [Nov. 3rd, 2005|01:52 am]
Capital University

November is Asian American History Month and Capital's Asian American Alliance is planning on "Celebrating yesterday, today!" Thursday, November 3rd, we're planning a Movie Night for anybody who's interested. We're going to show The Joy Luck Club at 6 pm in the SA Lobby/Living Room. We'll have free popcorn :)

Also, if you look around campus, hopefully you'll be able to see some interesting fliers. Important Asian Americans are featured, such as I. M. Pei and Amy Tan. Also, in the PO Lobby, there are banners featuring more important Asian Americans like the first Asian American federal judge, Herbert Choy. These banners will be changing every week, so there will be fresh info! Please check it out!

At the very lease, please give the fliers and banners a look. We worked hard in doing this! And who knows... you might just learn something! (Yeah, I know- learn something at college, who would have thought?!)

On November 16th, Frank Wu (a famous author and currently the Dean at Wayne State University) will be speaking at 10 a.m. in Kable Chapel (in Kerns). He'll be talking about the racial issues beyond White and Black. I'm sure that it'll count as some sort of Extra Credit for your classes, so ask your professors! As we're nearing the end of the semester, I know everybody could use a little extra help.

If you guys have any questions at all, feel free to contact me, Sasha Westgate (PR Chair and Interim Vice President for AAA). My email is swestgat@capital.edu and my AIM is SkimmyW. Also, feel free to check out our Xanga site! Yes, I know it's not as cool as LiveJournal but it's still pretty awesome. :) www.xanga.com/asianamericanalliance

I hope to see a bunch of people at our Movie Night!

P.S. Read tomorrow's Chimes- There should be an article on AAA and what we're all about! :)

(Students Praying for Awakening and Revival on Campus)

Hello everyone!! Well, I’m honored to inform you that our God has immeasurable power.

On November 4th -5th at Liberty Barn Church (7080 Olentangy River Road Delaware, OH 43015), college students from all over Ohio are meeting to pray and fast for God to intervene in Ohio and cause an awakening. Registration begins at 8:00PM on the 4th, Things will get going with some worship and a speaker at 9:00PM. On Saturday, up by 9AM with more worship, prayer, fellowship, etc and out of the church at 9PM that night. Leaving early or coming late? Come and go as necessary.

I would like to remind us all that this is for ALL students in Ohio who believe in and follow Jesus, and would like to pray for His Spirit to sweep across Ohio and on our campuses with revival and awakening! So please let friends at other campuses know about it and let the word spread like wildfire. If you'd like pre-made flyers to hang up on your campuses or in your area, email ohiosparc@yahoo.com

Our responsibility lies only in providing the opportunity- paving the way- for people to come. We are to be like John the Baptist, making way for the King to move. Remember that our time is now severely limited, as we now only have about a month to get word to the whole state. This is the time in which we must rise to the occasion, it is clutch time- crunch time. 'The time for talk and half measures is over,' as Maximus (Gladiator) would put it.

As if I need to underline it, but prayer is our most valuable weapon, so let's use it for all it's worth!

Can you feel it? God is moving- the time is now, our roles are crucial. Let's rock and roll!!!!

Sis in JC,
Leanne Wilson

If you have any questions, please email sparcohio@yahoo.com or go to ohiosparc.blogspot.com!

Joel 1:14-15 “14Announce a time of fasting; call the people together for a solemn meeting. Bring the leaders and all the people into the Temple of the LORD your God, and cry out to him there. 15The day of the LORD is on the way, the day when destruction comes from the Almighty. How terrible that day will be!”

[music |Theory of a Deadman -"Gasoline"]

So, some of you may remember who I am. For those of you who don't...I'm Natalie Davis, the crazy Jew on campus who works for Public Safety AND the Capital school newspaper, THE CHIMES. Not too long ago, my good friend Sare and I wrote a little bit about the crazy preacher guy who stands outside and likes to tell us all that we'll [eventually] be going to Hell. Well, the CHIMES isn't out until tomorrow. BUT...I have an INSIDER LOOK AT A STORY that HOPEFULLY will be in it. Want to hear it? Well, just scroll your page down a little bit and read this awesome story by reporter Daniel Lichtenberger (must give credit where credit is due).

The name David Merrill Tripp probably means nothing to most students, at least not right now.
However, after only a few weeks into classes, most students are probably familiar with him, either by hearing him or hearing of him.
He’s the one you can hear walking out of any building on campus.
He’s the one most students either laugh at or try to ignore.
He’s the one who most students have deemed crazy.
Tripp is better known as “the street preacher,” who stands between Saylor-Ackermann and the conservatory at around noon on random days.
Some are willing to sit and listen to what he has to say. Some even ask him questions.
To be honest, I, too, was one of those people who quickly walked by, trying to ignore him, until one day I approached him.
Nervously, I asked Tripp, who was wearing a Salvation Army uniform, if I could privately talk with him. He said yes.
Tripp told me that he works as a security officer and belongs to the Salvation Army.
Street preaching since he was 18, Tripp said that he has been coming to Capital since moving to Columbus from Florida in 1987. Tripp also preaches at The Ohio State University, Otterbein College, Ohio Wesleyan University, and Columbus State Community College. He has been to 189 different colleges and universities across the country.
“On my vacations,” Tripp said. “I go to campuses.”
Cutting to the chase, I asked Tripp if he felt welcome at Capital. I knew what he would say before he even said it.
“Not really,” he said. “A lot of [students] wish I would never show up.”
“It [doesn’t] discourage me. It just lets me know where I need to be.”
Talking with him one-on-one was a little different than listening to him preach. His boisterous voice became soft. He rarely digressed into long spiels about everything he sees wrong in society. Furthermore, I could see his genuine care for people, which is independent from his beliefs.
Tripp might contradict himself at times, but doesn’t everyone? He might have radical ideas, but everything was radical once. I’m not saying we should follow anything that he preaches. I’m not even justifying his actions.
I am saying that we should respect him as a fellow person, regardless of his beliefs or what he says. Even if you disagree with him, you might learn something.
To illustrate this, while discussing war, Tripp made the point that people are always pointing fingers at each other.
“[People] never look in the mirror and say, ‘What have I done wrong?’”
“Love your enemies,” Tripp said, quoting Jesus. “If they do you wrong, do them right.”
Capital might be known for valuing education and having a small campus, but why not be known for acceptance? Why not accept and welcome everyone as we would wish to feel welcomed? Why not accept those who disagree with us? What else are we to do but to do Tripp right?

YAY! okay, so that's the story. It made me laugh...it made me cry...it made me wet myself just a little bit....okay, maybe it didn't do any of those things, but I did enjoy it, so I hoped you did too. So what do you need to say to the crazy preacher man the next time you see him on campus? Whatever the hell you want to of course, but maybe say "Hi" to him before you go off on a "crazy-man-tangent" as well.

~Natalie Davis

Tuesday afternoon mass [Sep. 15th, 2005|05:52 pm]
Capital University

I am very pleased to see that our dear friend Mr. The Prophet has returned again this year to enlighten us about the kingdom of God and wonders that He can perform! Should anyone like to hear his wonderful banters of fire and brimstone, he has been spotted mainly on Tuesdays in the early afternoon around 12pm. You may take your seat at the benches near the sundial and he will speak to you from a small patch of grass that is directly in front of those benches (because if he steps off of the grass then he is technically trespassing). Feel free to come and enjoy the fun!!

haha, my only "violation" [Sep. 15th, 2005|05:14 pm]
Capital University

so, for those of you who know me, i graduated this past may and i'm from KENTUCKY. however, this does not stop capital from sending me this very interesting piece of mail:

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

i'm puzzled, for many reasons:
1) i have not been to ohio since i've graduated, especially at 2:45am. is my car like the traveling knome in the french film Amelie? has it been taking vacations without me? if so, not only am i jealous, but am hurt that i never received a post card.
2) since when did my 2-door accent suddenly develop an extra 2 doors?!?
3) apparently someone painted my car BLACK, too, without my knowledge. granted it does need a paint job but as far as i know my car has always been and will always be RED!
4) i'm amused that considering they mailed my ticket to my permanent residence in KENTUCKY they didn't bother to question why the liscense plate was registered in ohio.....

way to go, department of public safety. and whoever you are badge #35, i think that just disqualified you for being one of the budweiser's "real men of genius."

fortunately that's all resolved anyway (not that i was worried) but it made for an amusing phone conversation so i thought i'd just share it with the rest of you folks. :)
