GOOD MORNING. I’M GABRIELLE RILES.
AND I’M JILLIAN ANDREWS. THANKS FOR JOINING US FOR MORNINGS ON THE HILL.
OUR TOP STORY THIS HOUR… AT LEAST THREE PEOPLE IN NEW YORK STATE
HAVE TESTED POSITIVE FOR CORONAVIRUS
THIS COMES AFTER NEARLY 350 SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY STUDENTS RETURNED
HOME LAST WEEK FROM A STUDY ABROAD TRIP IN ITALY DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS THREAT.
S-U STUDENTS ARE BACK IN THE UNITED STATES, BUT NOT ON CAMPUS JUST YET.
THE VICE PRESIDENT FOR INTERNATIONAL PROGRAM SAYS STUDENTS WILL BE
ABLE TO COME TO CAMPUS AFTER SPRING BREAK. WHEN THEY DO ARRIVE, THE UNIVERSITY PLANS TO MAKE ANY NECESSARY ACCOMMODATIONS FOR THEM.
“the folks in auxillary services and housing has been absolutely fantastic in terms of coming up with housing options for our students who came back to campus. Many of them want to keep their same roommates that they had in their homestate of Florence. I’m pretty sure we can accommadate most of those request”
THE BARNES CENTER AT THE ARCH STILL HAS FLU-KITS FOR AT ANYTIME FOR
STUDENTS, FACULTY AND STAFF. WE’LL HAVE MORE UPDATES ON THE CORONAVIRUS IN THE NEXT SEGMENT OF MORNINGS ON THE HILL.
A SENIOR HEALTH OFFICIAL IN INDONESIA IS SAYING THAT HOTTER WEATHER MAY HELP STOP THE SPREAD OF THE VIRUS..
OUR MARIA TRIVELPIECE IS LIVE OUT ON UNIVERSITY AVE TO TELL US WHAT TO EXPECT ON THIS WARMER THAN AVERAGE DAY.
BACK TO YOU IN THE STUDIO.
As winter continues here in Central New York, some of us might not understand the importance of snowtires.
N-C-C’s Dana Casullo and I looked into the price of spending a little money on snow tires, instead of taking the risk of a costly accident.
“Do you know anything about snow tires? No what is the difference between snow tires and regular tires? I don’t know but we should go find out. Lets go.”
“The biggest difference on the snow tire is the tread is very soft so you can stick your fingernail in it and it’s also cut, and the cuts are made to bite into the ice in the snow. Where a summer tire is more of a larger flat surfer with no cuts in it or slices in it.”
In Central New York people get snow tires just like these ones put on in late November right when the snow starts to fall but they can’t leave them on for too long…
“Winter tires can’t be driven in the summer because they will wear out ten times faster than a normal tire would.”
Lyman can tell when the type of tire is the cause of an accident.
“It’s on a weekly basis that we get cars in the winter time that had accidents in the snow, it’s quite obvious when you look at their tires that they are either summer tires or worn out summer tires or worn out winter tires.”
“24 percent of all-weather related crashes happen on icy or snowy roads and over 1,300
people are killed each year in these types of crashes.”
“The prices range higher than they do for summer tires. And I would say they range from a very small tire as low as 80 dollars apiece up to 200 or 250 dollars apiece.”
Even though winter tires are more costly, it’s nothing compared to the price of an accident.
According to the association for safe international travel, the average cost of a car accident in the U-S is $820 a person.
Four snow tires at 100 dollars a piece is less than half the price. Not to mention personal injury.
“It very likely can prevent a lot of accidents that we see here at the shop…”
In addition to switching to winter tires, experts say you should also slow down during snowy conditions.
Coming up here on Mornings on the Hill–
Students show off some impressive dancing skills
Also coming up.. Its womens history month, what that means on S-U’s campus.
Stay with us for those stories and much more here on Mornings on the Hill.
WELCOME BACK TO MORNINGS ON THE HILL….
MARCH IS WOMEN’S HISTORY MONTH. IT’S TIME TO CELEBRATE WOMEN AND THEIR ACCOMPLISHMENTS.
BUT, A LOT OF THESE ACHIEVEMENTS MAY NOT HAVE BEEN POSSIBLE WITHOUT
THE INCEPTION OF TITLE IX. BUT WHAT IS TITLE IX? WITH THE HELP OF A SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY PROFESSOR, OUR REPORTER MARIA TRIVELPIECE BROKE DOWN ITS LAYOUT AND ORIGINS.
” What Title IX ensures is that any university or college that receives federal funding, is mandated to make sure that it services are equally accessible to men and women.”
It was part of the Equal Ammendments of 1972. It states, “”No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.” “)
“It comes into play a lot in athletics. For example, if a university is going to provide resources and facilities to male sports like lacrosse and football, they also need to provide the same facilites and resources for female sports like softball. And, if a university is going to supply scholarships to male athletes, they need to provide the same amount to female athletes.”
But what prompted this push for equality all of those years ago. Professor Osborne says…
“Women still weren’t getting access to the same resources that men were getting access to so you very much had a separte and unequal approach to education.”
And Title IX has made a ton of improvements for women both academically and athletically.
In 1972, just about 30,000 females participated in collegiate athletics.
“Today in 2020, that number has increased to over 200,000. There have been a ton of improvements made, but there still could be more. But now, NCC Knows what Title IX is and you do too.”
ONE WAY SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY IS CELEBRATING WOMEN’S HISTORY MONTH IS
BY PLACING POSTERS THROUGHOUT CARNEGIE LIBRARY THAT DISPLAY FEMALE INNOVATORS IN STEM ROLES.
OUR CAMPUS HAS DANCE GROUPS REPRESENTING CULTURES FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD.
OUR SARAH AL-SHAIKH HIGHLIGHTS ONE DANCE GROUP THAT’S PRACTICING FOR A PERFORMANCE PACKED SEMESTER…
YES, THIS DANCE GROUP JUST PERFORMED LAST WEEK AND HAS ANOTHER SHOW AROUND THE CORNER, AND THEIR HIPS DON’T LIE.
Inside a studio downstairs in the Barnes Center, Otto’s Empire Belly Dancing Troupe is practicing for their next performance.
“with a flick, left two three, with a flick…”
From last weeks performance at Senior-Send off to their next performance at Hendricks Chapel, this group is taking belly dancing across the Syracuse University campus. For first time belly dancer, Chloe Payne, she leaves the dance floor with more than just new moves.
“I love it! What do you love about it? Because I have all my friends and I can meet new people.”
One of those friends is Olivia Baist. This is her second year with the dance group and she’s confident about taking the stage.
“I like, uhmm, is having fun and performance just don’t be like nervous or anything.”
But some newer dancers like Harry Dydo are feeling a mixture of emotions about their upcoming performance.
“happy and a little bit nervous.”
For our SU community, Otto’s Empire Belly Dancing Troupe spreads cultural awareness through their events on the history of belly dancing and the Arab culture.
“We hosted an event with the Arab Student Association last Spring where we had Middle
Eastern food and some bands.”
And for their dancers, this group spreads body positivity. Vivian Conley is the choreographer and she says she’s always had a love for dance, but now she has a deeper love for her body.
“In high school you would’ve never caught me on stage in just like a bralette and like a skirt. Like that’s something I never would’ve felt comfortable and now that is what I do. I get up on stage and I’m just confident about my boyd and I’m happy doing what I’m doing.”
OTTO’S EMPIRE BELLY DANCING TROUPE IS PERFORMING ON MARCH TWENTY-

ONE DEPARTMENT STORE IS helping students get suited up to dress for success.
OUR REPORTER MARSHA AUGUSTIN VISITED JCPENNEY WHERE YOUNG
PROFESSIONALS GOT DEALS ON THEIR BUSINESS ATTIRE
Getting professional attire can traditionally be more expensive but this event makes it much more affordable for students.
50% off 30% off 20% off and more!
” I found a 40% and 30% so combined it’s 70% off, overall I am finding good deals”
Danielle Nimakam is an SU student, she says she is shopping here today because she needs a lot more business casual and business professional clothing for a school business trip to Silicon Valley.
“We’re visiting alot of companies and we are doing alot of networking and searching for opportunities and I wanted to make sure I looked my best.”
It’s interview season and time to shop for success. AJ Seymour, is a Junior at SU and he says, this Suited Up event is fantastic and exactly what he needed!
“I think it’s a really great opportunity, I was in need of some new professinal wear, it’s interview season so I am looking for clothes that I would feel comfortable presenting myself in a professional setting and I think this event is awesome.”
And Anthony Cruz another SU student shopping for a professional look on a student budget says, events like this are important.
“It allows students to afford things that they couldn’t afford when they are concerned about buying textbooks and things to live in Syracuse, so now I especially can just by a suit so I can look professional for a conference, for an internship or job interview.”
Cruz says the suit he got was a steal.
“This suit is originally $200 I believe, the discount is 50% off and they are giving an extra 30% off of that.”
“JC Penny’s suited up event with Syracuse Universtiy allows students to dress for success and get items like this for up to 60% off.”
Mark Trumbo, the Assistant Athletics Director for Student Engagement organized this event and says the vibe…
” Feels great! We were all hoping it would be a good event. And we are impressed with how many students showed up for the event. We got food from Tintrees, they love their pizza and tenders, its classic college food and we have the staff here who is really making it exciting for them and we have different stations like make up, gift cards, hair stylist to give hair consultations.”
“… N-C-C News”
Trumbo says the next event will take place in the fall right before career fair week, where over 100 employers come to SU. He is looking forward to having students suited and booted for that event.
THANKS MARSHA. THATS ALL WE HAVE FOR MORNINGS ON THE HILL TODAY.
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR JOINING US THIS WEEK. WE CONTINUE ON AT 10:30 FOR THE NEXT SHOW. HAVE A GREAT DAY, SYRACUSE.
