Chemical clears out Burris

Bomb squad uses pulley system to remove crystallized picric acid ADAM BAUMGARTNER GRAPHICS EDITOR | graphics@bsudailynews.com

Concern of a potentially explosive chemical caused students and faculty to evacuate Burris Laboratory School early Wednesday morning. Students waited in Ball Gymnasium for five hours as safety professionals removed the chemical from the building. Tuesday night, a teacher discovered a container of about half a pound of crystallized picric acid in a chemical storage closet. When environmental safety experts investigated the next morning, they determined it was dangerous. “This is a very volatile chemical in the state it’s in,” Muncie Fire Department Battalion Chief Jim Clevenger said. Bob Morris, Burris associate provost and former chemistry department chair, said the crystallized acid is particularly sensitive to bumps, making it dangerous for anyone to carry through the building. Instead, a bomb squad had to place it in a small crate and lower it from a second-floor window into a bomb-safe trailer using a system of pulleys. To dispose of chemicals such as these, Clevenger said professionals must drive the trailer to an isolated area and detonate its contents. University Police Department officers blocked University Avenue between Tillotson and Talley avenues to allow students to relocate safely and to clear the street for emergency vehicles. Rescue vehicles and fire trucks were on the scene in case of an explosion. A HAZMAT tent and crew were also present as a precaution.

Obama unveils $500 million gun plan Proposals to require background checks, ban certain weapons | THE ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON — Conceding “this will be difficult,” President Barack Obama urged a reluctant Congress on Wednesday to require background checks for all gun sales and ban both military-style assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines in an emotion-laden plea to curb gun violence in America. The president’s sweeping, $500 million plan, coming one month after the school massacre in Connecticut, marks the most comprehensive effort to tighten gun laws in nearly two decades. But his proposals, most of which are opposed by the National Rifle Association, face a doubtful future in a divided Congress where Republicans control the House. Seeking to circumvent at least some opposition, Obama signed 23 executive actions on Wednesday, including orders to make more federal data available for background checks and end a freeze on government research on gun violence. But he acknowledged that the steps he took on his own would have less

President Barack Obama signs a series of executive orders about his administration’s new gun law proposals as Vice President Joe Biden and children who wrote letters to the White House about gun violence look on. The executive orders come in the wake of the discussion about gun control brought about by the Sandy Hook shooting.

impact than the broad measures requiring approval from Capitol Hill. “To make a real and lasting difference, Congress, too, must act,” Obama said, speaking at a White House ceremony with school children and their parents. “And Congress must act soon.” The president’s announcements capped a swift and wide-ranging effort, led by Vice President Joe Biden, to respond to the deaths of 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook CONTACT US

Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. But Obama’s gun control proposals set him up for a tough political fight with Congress as he starts his second term, when he’ll need Republican support to meet three looming fiscal deadlines and pass comprehensive immigration reform. “I will put everything I’ve got into this, and so will Joe,” the president said. “But I tell you, the only way we can change is if the American people demand it.”

Key congressional leaders were tepid in their response to the White House proposals. Republican House Speaker John Boehner’s office signaled no urgency to act, with spokesman Michael Steel saying only that “House committees of jurisdiction will review these recommendations. And if the Senate passes a bill, we will also take a look at that.” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said he was committed to ensuring that the Senate will consider gun violence legislation “early this year.” But he did not endorse any of Obama’s specific proposals. The president vowed to use “whatever weight this office holds” to fight for his recommendations. He’s likely to travel around the country in the coming weeks to rally public support and could engage his still-active presidential campaign operation in the effort. But he’ll have to overcome a well-financed counter-effort by the NRA. “This will be difficult,” Obama acknowledged. “There will be pundits and politicians and special interest lobbyists publicly warning of a tyrannical, all-out assault on liberty — not because that’s true, but because they want to gin up fear or higher ratings or revenue for themselves.”

SAFETIES COACH WILL NOT RETURN FOR NEXT SEASON

Ball State announced that safeties coach Terry Lantz will not return to the program for the 2013 season. A news release sent by the athletics department said Lantz’s contract “has not been renewed.” Ball State’s two safety positions in 2012 consisted of players becoming regular starters for the first time following the graduations of Sean Baker and Joshua Howard. Jarrett Swaby, Brian Jones, J.C. Wade, Chris Pauling and Chris Calloway all saw playing time at the two positions in 2012. The safeties struggled to create turnovers last season as Jones was the only safety to record an interception. Swaby led all safeties with 71 total tackles on the season. Lantz spent the 2011 and 2012 seasons as safeties coach at Ball State. He joined Lembo’s staff two months after he was introduced as the coach of Ball State in December 2010. – MAT MIKESELL

Be Here Now to host Indianapolis funk, jam band on Friday JORDAN MOODY STAFF REPORTER | jemoody@bsu.edu

Indianapolis jam band The Twin Cats, famed by their Super Bowl Village and ESPN SportsNation performances last year, will return to the Be Here Now stage for the first time since 2010 on Friday following opening act Diphox. The Twin Cats gained a respective local following since forming in 2004. Compared to other local artists in the Indy

music scene, they stand out by fusing an array of genres together such as jazz, funk and rock, and then improvising within each song to ensure that each performance is different than the one prior. “They break barriers and their musicianship is crazy,” said opening act Diphox, a disc jockey that specializes in spinning all styles of music. “It’s cool, it’s funky, it’s jazzy and people get wild to it.” Diphox has seen The Twin Cats live multiple times and has left each time being impressed by not only their musicianship, but by their local following as well. “If it were in Indy, it’d be

He said they’ve performed there for about eight years, and believes it’s the venue where they’ve grown as a band. Outside of Indianapolis, The Twin Cats have played venues in Wisconsin, St. Louis, Detroit, New York and Chicago. The Twin Cats have also shared the stage with other notorious jam bands such as Umphrey’s Mcgee.

Cards blown out by Falcons Ball State opened game by missing 16 straight field goals MATT McKINNEY ASST. SPORTS EDITOR |l@Matt_D_McKinney

After two games of renewed conference hope, the Ball State has come back down to earth. The women’s basketball team (5-11 overall, 2-1 MAC) picked up its first Mid-American Conference loss to Bowling Green Wednesday night, 73-42. Ball State coach Brady Sallee was candid after the game. “Bowling Green came out after a tough loss to Toledo and took it out on us a little bit,“ Sallee said. “Our kids did not respond very well and all the credit to BG. They were ready to go and showed us what the top of the league looks like.“ Ball State started the game with 16 consecutive missed field goals. The only points Ball State scored during the game’s first 11:52 was off free throws. Finally, at the 8:06 mark, junior Lyzz Smith hit a 3-pointer that ended the nosedive. “No. To be honest, no,” Sallee said when asked if he’s ever seen anything like the 16 consecutive missed shots. “A lot of things go into that. We took some bad shots. We took some shots out of the offense. You don’t fault anybody for doing it, they’re trying to get you going.” Sallee said that his team’s bad shots allowed Bowling Green to get easy transition points on the other end, leading to an even bigger hole for Ball State. “It was a double-edged sword,” Sallee said, “Our kids are learning these lessons.“ During that run, Bowling Green went on ay 23-4 run to

start the game. That run put the Cardinals in a hole that they couldn’t dig themselves out of. Even after the 0-16 slump, Ball State shot just 14-38 in the rest of the game, good for 37 percent. “We didn’t seem ever, in the first half, to play on the same page,” Sallee said. “I’d have a couple doing one thing,

and someone else would be standing around. When you literally have somebody standing around on almost every possession, how in the world can you ever expect to be successful?“ One area the Cardinals were successful in was in the turnover department. Despite the scoring discrepancy, Ball State (16) still had fewer turnovers than

Bowling Green (18). “It’s a nature of the way we play,” Sallee said. “The good news is we did take care of the ball, we just shot it ridiculously bad. At the end of the day, you try to take some positives out of it.“ The first-year coach also stressed the importance of playing with discipline, even with such a frustrating loss.

MEN’S BASKETBALL

AKRON’S LATE RUN BEATS BALL STATE

Ball State (7-8, 1-2 MAC) closed the gap to one point in the second half, but a backbreaking 3-pointer by senior guard Alex Abreu with 1:04 remaining pushed Akron (12-4, 3-0 MAC) to a 71-64 win on Wednesday. The two teams traded leads throughout the first half until a 12-0 run by the Zips gave them a 34-28 lead at the break. For much of the game, junior forward Majok Majok and senior guard Jauwan Scaife carried the load offensively for the Cardinals. Majok scored a career-high 26 points on 10-of-16 shooting and Scaife added 17 as the two players combined for 43 of the team’s 64 total points. Ball State’s big-man added 13 rebounds to record his second consecutive double-double. With 10:48 left in the second half, Ball State cut the lead to one point, 47-46. That’s when Abreu took over and scored all 11 of his points to close out the game. He was a perfect 5-of-5 from the line and added seven assists. Akron’s Nick Harney and Zeke Marshall also finished in double figures with 15 and 13 points, respectively. Junior forward Chris Bond was the only other Cardinal in double figures with 10 points. Ball State’s bench managed only four points in a combined 51 minutes. The team returns to action against Central Michigan on Saturday. – CONOR HOCKETT

a technical foul late in the game. Sallee said he didn’t actually see the play, but “you want to keep your head in those situations. You don’t get a lot out of those frustration-based plays.“ Sallee still gave credit to Bowling Green after the game. “They just weren’t going to take it easy on us, and we had to step up to their level of play, and didn’t do it until it was too late.”

Early in a season, it is difficult to determine the exact skill level of a team. After this weekend, a clearer picture should show what Ball State men’s volleyball team is made of. After playing its first game against St. Francis at home, Ball State will take a road trip to the East Coast for its next two matches. The Cardinals take on the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) Highlanders on Friday and the Sacred Heart Pioneers on Saturday. This week started with the first video session for the team since its annual alumni match, in which they reviewed their opening season match sweep of St. Francis. And while coach Joel Walton and his assistants divvied their time preparing a game plan for both the Highlanders and the Pioneers, the team spent the rest of the week dedicated to preparing for NJIT. Walton the strategy might leave them a bit underprepared for the Sacred Heart match, but the team will still have time to digest the plan of attack for the Pioneers. To be prepared for the NJIT match, Walton stressed that the Highlanders is a solid squad, with excellent distribution patterns. “[NJIT’s] setter really spreads the offense around,” Walton said. “They have a lot of guys taking a lot of swings.” In NJIT’s only match of the season against Grand Canyon (lost 1-3), it had five players with at least 17 kill attempts and three with at least 10 kills. Outside hitters Chris Kaepernick and Kajetan Borecki are

integral parts to NJIT’s offense, and Walton knows the Cardinals have to slow them down. “We have to keep [NJIT] off balance with our serves,” Walton said. “We also have to make sure our blockers are in good form.” Middle hitter Ryan Mather for Grand Canyon paced his team, and, looking at the numbers, seemed to impose his will of the Highlanders. Seeing this it will be interesting to see how Ball State’s middle attacker junior Kevin Owens will fair, given senior outside attacker Greg Herceg carried most of the offensive load for the Cardinals in their first match. Scouting Sacred Heart is a difficult proposition, as well. The

Pioneers have played one match in the season, which was against Grand Canyon (lost 3-1). In their match against Grand Canyon, the Pioneers did not let one player dominate against them, unlike how NJIT let Mather. This will force Ball State setter junior Graham Mcllvaine to distribute the ball to different members of his team. A surprise from Sacred Heart’s only match was the 18 kills from junior Jason Kinney, who is actually listed as a setter himself, but has clearly taken on a new role. The attacker Ball State knows it must focus on though is junior outside hitter Enzo Mackenzie. “We’ve seen [Enzo] for the

last couple seasons,” Walton said. “He sees a lot of sets, and we have to get our blockers side by side when he goes up.” Walton stressed that the team’s level of intensity will be a crucial factor in both matches. After a collective 12 hours and 30 minutes on a bus and a match 24 hours before, this might prove to be a challenge, but no excuses will be heard by the coach. “We have to step up,” Walton said, “and be ready to go.”

Donnelly recognizes burden of OBAMA: Leaders of Congress apathetic about statement costs in conversation with Gora | CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1

Senator, President talk geothermal, higher education SARA NAHRWOLD DAY EDITOR | news@bsudailynews.com Ball State’s geothermal project and higher education were among topics Ball State President Jo Ann Gora and Sen. Joe Donnelly discussed Wednesday morning on campus. After winning the election in November for the U.S. Senate seat of former Sen. Richard Lugar, Donnelly said he is ready to jump start his education agenda for Hoosiers. “We want to try to make sure there is a job for everyone who graduates and that our economy continues to grow,� he said. “For our students, just make sure your

Although based in Hoosier students have been Washington D.C., Donnelly struggling with the financial plans to be back in Indiana as woes of a college education, much as possible, and “bring with universities losing Hoosier common sense state funding.

the years ahead,� he said. “It is probably the most worthwhile and important thing you can do with your time right now.� “We shared with him an update on our geothermal project, which is a national model and something that puts Indiana on the map for its forward thinking approach to the use of alternative energy,� Gora said. Donnelly was brought up to speed on the project, which began in spring 2012. The earth heats water to power the heating and cooling system throughout campus. “We talked about the concept of spreading the good news of that to other schools, to other areas,� he said. “This is a way we can have more American energy, less expensive American energy and Hoosier jobs, so it’s a real plus all the way around.�

The president, speaking in front of an audience that included families of some of those killed in Newtown, said 900 Americans had lost their lives to gun violence in the four weeks since the school shootings. “We can’t put this off any longer,� Obama declared. “Every day we wait, the number will keep growing.� Many Democrats say an assault weapons ban faces the toughest road in Congress. Obama wants lawmakers to reinstate the expired 1994 ban on the highgrade weapons, and strengthen the measure to prevent manufacturers from circumventing the prohibition by making cosmetic changes to banned guns. The president is also likely to face opposition to his call for Congress to limit ammunition magazines to 10 rounds. But Democrats are hopeful they can build consensus around the president’s call for universal background checks. The Brady

ADDITIONAL STEPS OBAMA PROPOSED:

•O  rdering tougher pentalities for people who lie on background checks. •R  equiring federal law enforcement to trace guns recovered in criminal investigations. •O  rdering a review of safety standards for fun locks and fun safes. Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence says 40 percent of gun sales are conducted with no criminal background checks, such as in some instances at gun shows or by private sellers over the Internet or through classified ads. The NRA is opposed to all three measures. In a statement Wednesday, the gun lobby said, “Only honest, law-abiding gun owners will be affectedâ€? by Obama’s efforts and the nation’s children “will remain vulnerable to the inevitability of more tragedy.â€?

Study Abroad Fair leads students to opportunities Travelers share their stories of spending time across seas EMMA KATE FITTES CHIEF REPORTER | emfittes@bsu.edu

After two summers and 10 countries, senior nursing major Alexa Avey came back to the Study Abroad Fair on Wednesday, but this time she is behind the table sharing her stories with prospective study abroad students. “Everyone says you are never going to get this experience in life again, and it’s so true.” Avey said. “Later in life, I’m not going to be able to up and leave my life for five weeks. You’re not going to get to go with a group of 30 college students, when you’re a college student yourself, and be able to have that kind of experience.” Avey went to Italy after her sophomore year and went to Paris after her junior year last year. During the trips she separately went to Spain, England, Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands. For her next trip, Avey is planning on going to Greece with the Kentucky Institute for International Studies, or KIIS, program over the summer, the program she is promoted at the fair. She said the study abroad fair is a good place to refute common myths associated with these trips, like it is too expensive, it will delay graduation and a requirement to speak multiple languages. Avey used loans and scholarships, only went during the summer and managed to

communicate with mostly English. She said every student has the same opportunity. “Everyone always tells me, ‘Oh, you’re so lucky you got to go,’” Avey said. “No. This has nothing to do with luck, I did this myself.” John Jensen, director of Study Abroad, said the faculty at the Rinker Center for International Programs is always available to help students prepare everything, including finding a program, figuring out credits and finding scholarships. Francois Le Roy, executive director of the International Education Center at Northern Kentucky University, said he drove three hours to be a part of the Study Abroad Fair. “I wanted to promote KIIS programs but I also wanted to meet with my colleagues.” Le Roy said. “Ball State has been a very active, very successful participant in the KIIS program. Ball State students have always distinguished themselves by being particularly engaged, dynamic, very positive.” Le Roy said the biggest difference between the Ball State Study Abroad Fair and the fair at Northern Kentucky is the faculty support. There were 25 faculty officially signed up to run the fair, and more continued to stop by. Le Roy said he would not have as much faculty support at his fair. Avey said teachers have helped her learn from her experiences. “The teachers want you to learn about the culture.” Avey said. “Ultimately, that is going to be the greatest learning experience, [which] is outside

BURRIS: Crews worked to ensure safety to parents | CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Parents were notified of the evacuation via email around 9 a.m. Clevenger said a major concern among safety professionals was ensuring parents knew there was no bomb or gun threat. “In today’s world with what happened in Connecticut and everything else — you know, for a parent to drive by and see emergency vehicles surrounding a school — people are on

edge,” Clevenger said. The Ball State Dining Services provided lunch for the students in kindergarten through fifth grades in Ball Gym, while students in sixth through twelfth grades ate in the L.A. Pittenger Student Center. They were allowed to reenter Burris by 2 p.m. Tony Proudfoot, associate vice president of Ball State Marketing and Communications, said Burris will begin to enhance its procedures for handling chemicals in the future.

In Italy we would go to the plazas and have class in the plaza.” Avey said she will remember the trips for the rest of her life. “Just wandering the streets aimlessly in Florence, [Italy,] and everything was so old, and the architecture is so old, and everything is gorgeous,” she said. “Just to look at things and know the historical significance ... it’s really a great thing.”
