NOT SO QUIET TIME
Dancers promote Korean pop
As shown by the viral popu-
larity of South Korean rapper
Psy's "Gangnam Style," Kore-
an pop is becoming increas-
ingly popular in the United
States and at the University.
To foster student interest
in K-Pop culture, the Univer-
sity's K-Pop Dance Factory
club provides an open forum
for University students that
enjoy K-Pop music and dance.
Members also prepare rou-
tines and give various perfor-
mances on campus. .
Yihong Chen, an LSA
sophomore and president
of the club, said most mem-
bers developed an interest
for K-Pop in high school, and
were a part of their school's
respective K-Pop dance clubs
or started watching music
videos of K-Pop songs.
K-Pop was love at first
listen said LSA junior Liya
Palmer, the group's vice presi-
"Once I heard the music,
I was like, I love this ... (and)
I became obsessed with it,"
Both club leaders empha-
sized, that the group wel-
comes people of all ethnicities
or backgrounds, and members
do not have to be Korean. The
only requirement is a shared
love for K-Pop.
The club holds rigorous
practices in the fall semester
in preparation for its winter
semester shows every year.
They typically perform four
or five times a year, and cho-
reograph each show differ-
ently. Popular K-Pop songs
such as "Bubble Pop," "The
Boys," "Gee" and "Gangnam
Style" are regularly used in
The group performed on
Saturday at the University's
Chuseok event, which was
based on traditional Korean
harvest festivals. Other annu-
al performances include the
Chinese New Year festivals
and Chinese Moon Festival.

U.S. begins flying deportees to
\ Mexico to relieve border cities
Workers check on a salvaged boat which sank previous night after colliding with a ferry near Lamma Island, off the
southwestern coast of Hong Kong Island Tuesday.
7 crew Cmembers arrested
as two boats collie in Hong
38 killed in
police say crew did
not act safely
HONG KONG (AP) - Police
arrested seven crew members
from two boats that collided in
Hong Kong waters, killing 38
holiday revelers, but offered no
explanation about how the ves-
sels ran into each other on a clear
night in one of the safest and most
regulated waterways in Asia.
The Monday night crash was
Hong Kong's deadliest accident in
more than 15 years and its worst
maritime accident in more than
40. Some relatives of the dead
went to the scene off Hong Kong
island's southwestern coast to
toss spirit money in honor of the
victims on Tuesday, while others
waited at the morgue for news
about loved ones.
Police Commissioner Tsang
Wai-hung said six people were
detained on suspicion of endan-
gering passengers by operat-
ing their craft in an unsafe way.
Police later announced a seventh
Tsang said both crews are sus-
pected of having not "exercised
the care required of them by law,"
but he did not elaborate.
A ferry collided with the
Lamma IV, which is owned by the
Hong Kong Electric Co. and was
taking more than 100 employees
and their families to famed Vic-
toria Harbor to watch a fireworks
display in celebration of China's
National Day and mid-autumn
The government said 101 peo-
ple weresent to hospitals, 66 were
discharged, and four had serious
injuries or were in critical condi-
The ferry was damaged but
completed its journey, and some
of its passengers were treated for
injuries. Local TV later showed

(Ferry) Holdings Ltd., the ferry
operator, did not return calls
The government said 28 bod-
ies were recovered overnight, and
eight more people were declared
dead at hospitals. Two bodies
found aboard the vessel Tuesday
raised the death toll to 38, accord-
ing to government statements.
At least four of those killed were
Salvage crews raised the half-
submerged Lamma IV using
three crane barges.
At the same time, several dozen
relatives of victims traveled by
boat to take part in a traditional
Chinese mourning ritual, praying
alongside Taoist priests and toss-
ing spirit money into the wind.
Survivors told local television
stations that the power com-
pany boat started sinking rap-
idly after the 8:23 p.m. collision.
One woman said she swallowed
a lot of water as she swam back
to shore. A man said he had been
on board with his children and
didn't know where they were.
Neither gave their names.
Though there was no immedi-
ate word about how the collision
occurred on Hong Kong's tightly
regulated waterways, it appeared
human error was involved.

government began flying Mexi-
can deportees home on Tues-
day in a two-month experiment
aimed at relieving Mexican bor-

The flights will run twice a
week from El Paso, Texas, to
Mexico City until Nov. 29, at
which time both governments
will evaluate the results and
decide whether to continue. The
first flight left Tuesday with 131
The flights are not voluntary,
unlike a previous effort from
2004 to 2011 to deport Mexicans
arrested by the Border Patrol
during Arizona's deadly summer
The U.S. government will pay
for the flights, and the Mexican
government will pay to return
people from Mexico City to their
hometowns, U.S. Immigration
and Customs Enforcement said
in a news release.
ICE spokeswoman Nicole
Navas said Mexicans from that
country's northern border states
will not be eligible. The Mexican
government did not immediate-
ly respond to requests for com-
The experiment comes as
Mexican cities along the U.S.
border are grappling with large
numbers of deportees who have
no roots, few employment pros-
pects and sometimes limited

cities that are among the hard-
est hit by organized crime in
Mexico, particularly across the
border from Texas in the state of
"The newly repatriated, often
with no means to return home,
are susceptible to becoming
part of criminal organizations
as a means of survival," Gustavo
Mohar, Mexico's interior under-
secretary for population, migra-
tion and religious affairs, said in
a statement released by ICE.
ICE Director John Morton said
the flights "willbetter ensure that
individuals repatriated to Mexico
are removed in circumstances
that are safe and controlled."
ICE, which is managing the
flights, said passengers will
include Mexicans with criminal
convictions in the United States
and those who don't have any.
They will be taken from through-
out the United States to a process-
ing center in Chaparral, N.M.,
before being put on flights at El
Paso International Airport.
President Barack Obama's
administration has made
migrants with criminal convic-
tions a top priority among the
roughly 400,000 people of all
nationalities who are deported
each year. The Department of
Homeland Security said nearly
half of the 293,966 Mexicans
deported in its last fiscal year
had criminal convictions in the
The policy has fueled concern
in Mexican cities along the U.S.
border that deportees are being
victimized, turn to petty crime
or are recruited by criminal
gangs. In February, Homeland
Security Janet Napolitano and
Mexican Interior Secretary Ale-
jandro Poire announced plans
for a pilot program, which was
to begin April 1, but negotiations
delayed the start until Tuesday.
Homeland Security officials said
the time was needed considering
the complexities and logistics of
The Border Patrol will not
participate in the flights, which
is called the Interior Repatria-
tion Initiative, Navas said.
Under a previous effort, some
Mexicans who were arrested
by the Border Patrol in Arizo-
na's stifling summer heat were
offered a free flight to Mexico
City, but they could refuse. The
Mexican Interior Repatriation
Program flights carried 125,164
passengers at a cost of $90.6
million from 2004 to 2011, or an
average of $724 for each passen-
ger, according to ICE.
