              Every year, the Berglund Center for Internet Studies awards a senior for the best use of analyzing the impact of the internet in their senior presentations as a part of their requirement at Pacific University. This year, two seniors were recipients of the Excellence in Internet Research Award. Both were awarded at the BCIS Awards Reception on May 16, 2014 and presented a small snippet of their presentations. Joshua Siva is a computer science and mathematics double major with his senior presentation in computer science of "NachoNet: A Rasberry Pi WiFi Localization System" Abstract: Do you often find yourself sitting around craving nachos? If you are like millions of other Americans, then you too are suffering from the effects of nacho misallocation. With NachoNet, hungry users can be located through their WiFi enabled devices. NachoNet utilizes WiFi localization and Raspberry Pis to locate devices in a room based on their signal strength. In addition to accurate localization, this system provides scalability by distributing calculations across each node in the network so that no single node is overly burdened. We dream of a future in which nacho delivery robots will utilize NachoNet to bring this delicious snack directly to you.

                Every year, the Berglund Center for Internet Studies awards a senior for the best use of analyzing the impact of the internet in their senior presentations as a part of their requirement at Pacific University. This year, two seniors were recipients of the Excellence in Internet Research Award. Both were awarded at the BCIS Awards Reception on May 16, 2014 and presented a small snippet of their presentations. Conner Cousins is a sociology major with his senior presentation of "Examining Masculinity & the Internalization of Video Game Violence" Abstract: Previous research examining video game violence (Barlett, Branch, Rodeheffer, and Harris 2009) has focused on the question: are video games a predictor of violent behavior? None of the research reviewed has uncovered any relationship to long-term aggressive behavior, and most of the studies (Williams and Skoric 2005; Boyle and Hibberd 2005; Funk, Baldacci, Pasold, and Baumgardner 2004) finding a relationship between video game violence and aggressive behavior have demonstrated that the effect is not a long term effect (Boyle and Hibberd 2005). Studies continue to be published, pulling the discussion back and forth, but none of them take a step back and look at what factors come in to play before the player picks up a controller. This study examines how adherence to traditional conceptualizations of masculinity influences the way males interpret violence portrayed in video games. Preliminary analyses indicate that masculinity does indeed play a role in how males discuss their appreciation and interpretation of video games violence. Participants scoring lower on the masculinity inventory discussed violence as a means to an end, a device that is used to achieve an established objective, not the objective itself. This study assessed potentially problematic constructions of masculinity and attempted to understand how these traits altered the consumption of violent interactive entertainment.

                    Pacific University welcomes civil rights activist Angela Davis on Friday, April 18 at 7:30 p.m. in the Stoller Center and a crowd of more than 2,000 is expected. Davis' talk, originally scheduled for Feb. 6, had been postponed due to the snowstorm. Davis has been a renowned public figure since the 1960s, gaining notoriety for her civil rights activism. She came to national attention after being removed from her teaching position in the Philosophy Department at UCLA as a result of her social activism and her membership in the Communist Party, USA. She is a retired professor with the History of Consciousness Department at the University of California, Santa Cruz, and is the former director of the university’s Feminist Studies Department. For the past several decades her work has been largely in the area of prison reform. Her appearance is sponsored by the Pacific University's Center for Peace & Spirituality, Tom McCall Center for Policy Innovation, Center for Civic Engagement, Office of Diversity, Office for Student Academic Inclusion and Success and Student Activities.
