Residence halls evacuated 30 times, 14 drills, leads some students to consider staying in room

KAITLIN LANGE CHIEF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
ire alarms have caused students to evacuate residence halls 30 times since the beginning of the 201314 academic year. None of them were a result of a fire that needed to be extinguished. In two weeks, Kinghorn Hall had three false ONLINE fire alarms this semester. About 14 of the 30 alarms were fire drills, which assistant director of housing and residence life Jeff Shoup said are required by law. The university holds a drill in each Students talk false alarms residence hall once per semester. bit.ly/1lf6BDO “Most students have grown up having fire drills from the time they were in kindergarten or first grade,” Shoup said. “To do that in a residence hall may not have been a natural kind of thought process, but for me it is a natural progression throughout your life.” Allison Bennett, a freshman exercise science major, said she thinks the drills and false alarms are too numerous. “I think that since they have them in every room, any time someone burns something or leaves on a straightener they go off without them needing to,” Bennett said.

Students work weekly to stop marriage bill 35 attend last event to offer information for Indiana residents DANIELLE GRADY CHIEF REPORTER | email@example.com Despite jobs, large course loads and making rent, a few Ball State students are devoting as many as 10 hours a week calling strangers to oppose HJR-3. At 5 p.m. Sunday and Wednesday, as well as during several impromptu sessions in the week, Sam Itkin calls Indiana residents. The sophomore creative writing major urges them to contact state representatives in their area to oppose the HJR-3 amendment. Armed with laptops and smart phones Itkin and 34 others prepared for a last ditch effort to make an impact on Indiana legislators, before today’s deciding vote. They hope to stop the amendment, which could strip away benefits for same sex couples, from continuing past Indiana’s House of Representatives and onto a statewide referendum

Freshmen get extra sets, capitalize on game time First .600 hitting game excites outside attacker DAVID POLASKI ASSISTANT SPORTS EDITOR | @DavidPolaski Facing off against McKendree men’s volleyball team, which played its first match Friday, Ball State started clearing its bench in the second set. The men’s volleyball team, used to seeing its veterans get the majority of attacks, may not have been expecting players like Mike Scannell, Alex Pia and Connor Gross to see action. Playing in the third and fourth sets of his career, Scannell stood out from the rest of the freshmen. “It’s the first game I hit over .600, so I’m pretty excited right now,” Scannell said after his team knocked off McKendree. “I think both teams still have a lot of work to do, but I’m happy with how I played.” There’s little reason for him to be unhappy. Scannell finished1. CLOUDY with sev- 2. MOSTLY CLOUDY en kills on nine attempts, good for a .667 hitting percentage.

Organization uses music to revive lost memories Students collect iPods, donations for nursing home DANIELLE GRADY CHIEF REPORTER | firstname.lastname@example.org
Tyler Sparkman never got the opportunity to get to know his great grandmother. She was always physically present, but Alzheimer’s rendered her unable to recognize the freshman telecommunication major’s face. “I just remember every time I would go to visit her, she wouldn’t know who I was,” he said. “She would call me mean names and stuff, because she thought I was there to hurt her.” Motivated by his experience with his grandmother, Sparkman joined Ball State’s chapter of Music & Memory, a nonprofit organization that delivers musicians to patients in nursing home dealing mental and physical ailments. The organization plans to collect iPods and monetary donations from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Atrium this week, working
to spread the word of the cause and rally contributions. The aim of the chapter is to trigger long buried memories and increase the quality of life through the power of music. According to the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America, music with especially strong ties to a memory can help those suffering from Alzheimer’s remember the past. Music helps because the individuals can experience well rehearsed responses to a musical piece that requires little cognitive processing, according to Alzheimer’s Foundation of America. The connection can be so strong that hearing a tune long after the occurrence evokes a memory of it, according to the organization. Those with late-stage dementia can lose the ability to share emotions or thoughts, however people often retain the ability to move to the beat of a musical piece. Dancing can lead to hugs or kisses, and singing is often associated with safety and security from earlier in life. Ball State’s chapter aspires to bring the program to the
Woodlands, a nursing home in Muncie. People who donate iPods are immediately entered into a drawing for a desk and chair set from Gill Brothers Furniture. Monetary pledges of $46 also warrant entrance. “I think it’ll be something really neat to have, especially if you have an apartment,” said Sparkman about the $500 furniture set. Sparkman started the organi-
zation when Michael Gerhard, associate professor of telecommunications, brought the idea to the attention of his class. Ten students came together and raised $1,600 at a Music & Memory variety show last semester. Vivien Pong, a freshman telecommunications major said, “I think it’s great that they started off college by bringing an organization with such a good cause to Muncie.”
happen so that we know what to do in case of an actual fire,” Bretz said. “But I think that you should only need one practice or false fire alarm a semester.” Timothy Kurby, a university safety specialist, said he doesn’t think the alarms go off too often, considering the number of buildings on campus, Campus includes nine residence complexes. The LaFollette Complex has had five fire alarms this academic year, not including drills. Studebaker Hall East and Kinghorn Hall both have had three. After the third alarm sounded in Kinghorn this year, Resi-
dence Hall Director Dillon Wyatt sent out an email thanking students for being patient and reminding them to continue exiting the building when an alarm sounds. Bennett said sometimes when the alarms go off, she considers not leaving because it is most likely false. “I feel like most of the time when it goes off, it’s not because I’m in danger,” she said. “It’s because someone did something stupid, and they had to clear the whole building out. It just distracts you.” Shoup said it was rare for students to be documented or pun-
ished for ignoring alarms. Ball State attorney John Connor said if a student were to stay in their residence hall during a real fire and sustain injuries, there is no specific statute or case to determine whether the student or university would be held liable. “Assuming the university is taking all proper precautions and the students just ignore [the alarm], I think the university would have a very strong case that the student assumed potential risk, and acted in a negligent manner, thereby contributing to their own injuries,” Connor said.

HJR-3: ‘It’s a no brainer... this is the wrong thing to do’ | CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Matt Marko is the lead campus organizer for Freedom Indiana at Ball State, which began last semester. Marko dropped everything and moved to Indianapolis from Maine to help with Freedom Indiana’s efforts. Since arriving, he has worked at both Ball State and Indiana University Bloomington campuses. Marko said he believes college students are an integral demographic when dealing with important social issues. “They are the future of this state,” he said. “They care about what this state is going to look like down the road.” He said HJR-3 is harmful not just to LGBT families, but Indiana’s image as a whole. Itkin agrees, his cousin has already left Indiana because of its laws regarding same sex marriage. “I like it here, and I’d like to have the option not to flee the
state the second after I graduate,” he said. “If bills like this pass, I’m just going to be out of here so quickly. I’m just trying to protect my own future and make the community better for everyone down the line.” Marko said college students recognize the impact HJR-3 will have on their friends and families. “This generation of younger folks—this is an important issue to them,” Marko said. “It’s a nobrainer to them that this is the wrong thing to do.” Marko hopes Freedom Indiana’s activities, like the phone banks, will have a profound effect on the way Indiana representatives vote. “This shows community, this shows what the grassroots movements are about,” he said. “You show up and you’re surrounded by 30 to 40 other people who care about this ... Just being there, in one space together, in solidarity, just shows the power of grassroots.”

FIRST HALF LEAD UNDONE BY TURNOVERS Ball State commits 21 turnovers in fifth conference defeat of year
DAVID K. JONES CHIEF REPORTER @dkjones_BSU
Ball State was unable to win a second consecutive Mid-American Conference game Sunday. After upsetting Buffalo on Thursday, the Ball State men’s basketball team lost to Western Michigan 62-53. Ball State fell to 4-13 overall with a 1-5 record in MAC play. The Cardinals were paced by senior starters Chris Bond and
Majok Majok, as they put up 13 points apiece. Majok finished with 10 rebounds to give him a double-double. Bond finished with seven rebounds and went 6-for-6 from the free-throw line. Shayne Wittington led the Broncos with 21 points, 15 rebounds and three assists. Ball State went into halftime clinging to a 26-25 lead, but couldn’t keep it together after the break. Head coach James Whitford received his
first technical foul after arguing a missed foul call during the second half that led to a Cardinal turnover. Franko House has battled with foul trouble since the turn of the calendar year. During the game, House committed four personal fouls and only scored two points for the Cardinals. He was a main contributor to the Cardinals’ success against Buffalo, scoring 12 points with four personal fouls. After performing so well statis-
Edge after doubles falls in singles play, not enough for win Team sees first loss, coach will prepare for Michigan State SAM FALETIC STAFF REPORTER | email@example.com Despite a strong start in doubles play, the Ball State men’s tennis team suffered its first loss of the season Sunday. Visiting Cleveland State left the Muncie YMCA Tennis Center with a 2-5 victory over Ball State. The Cardinals began with two doubles victories against the Vikings. Juniors Ray Leonard and Patrick Elliott defeated Ali Shabib and Joe VanMeter by a score of 6-4. Senior-freshman duo Lucas Andersen and Austin Smith
finished second defeating Matt Kuelker and Nolan Marks by a score of 6-3. Going into singles play, Cleveland State swiftly stole Ball State’s momentum. “Going into the match, I thought it would come down to the wire,” Ball State men’s tennis coach Bill Richards said. “Unfortunately, it did not end up that way.” Ball State’s only singles win came from Elliott, defeating Jorg Van Der Vloet in two of three sets, 5-6 (4), 6-2, 10-7. “Our biggest problem today was losing big points in pressure situations,” Richards said. “We were out-toughed.” Ball State, now 2-1 overall, takes on Michigan State, ranked 49, Saturday. Coach Richards plans to make the most of this week’s practices.

“Michigan State is a much better team than Cleveland State,” Richards said. “We need to look in the mirror and do a self-evaluation in order to perform better.” The Spartans are currently 2-3 having fallen to No. 34 North Carolina State and No. 6 Tennessee. Ball State’s next home game is 6:30 p.m. Saturday at the YMCA Tennis Center.
VOLLEYBALL: Straight set victory allows young players to gain extra experience | CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Pacing across the court, his attacks consistently found open spots on McKendree’s side with ease. He had just one attacking error and two blocks to complete his night. He worked particularly well with setter Hiago Garchet, who fed the ball to Scannell on five of his seven kills. Garchet relied on the freshman outside attacker often, as the two showed chemistry and communication throughout the second set. Garchet produced some unorthodox sets while getting the
ball to Scannell, but it worked as he connected on every set, hitting 1.000 while working with Garchet. “He was able to get some good attacks because of solid sets from Hiago,” Ball State head coach Joel Walton said. “We took some pretty impressive cuts from him and it allowed our attackers to have great chances.” Scannell’s match was one of the strongest for a Ball State freshman this season. His seven kills best the six kills outside hitter Brendan Surane collected against UC Irvine.
There’s a large difference in talent between UC Irvine and McKendree. “Their roster just isn’t deep enough to compete with the talent level our conference is in right now,” Walton said. Scannell played in just one other match before McKendree: a loss to Saint Francis in which he played two sets, totaling just one kill. The freshman’s first regular season match at home was one he’s proud of. “I think I played pretty well,” he said with a smile growing across his face.
tically against Buffalo, Ball State committed 21 turnovers. The Cardinals came into Sunday producing season-lows across the board, only committing 14 turnovers, giving up eight points off turnovers and limiting Buffalo to four points off fast-breaks. Zavier Turner is also coming off of season-lows. Turner finished with 11 points, three assists and seven turnovers against Western Michigan after being held scoreless in the
team’s victory over Buffalo. The Cardinals could not get their offense in rhythm shooting 30 percent from the field with a team total of six assists. The Cardinals shot 21.7 percent from three-point distance with Jesse Berry connecting on two out of the five. Turner, Bond and Mark Alstork all hit a three. The Cardinals fell to 0-9 on the road this season. They conclude their two-game road trip at Akron on Jan. 29.
SOPHOMORE’S 30 POINTS CAN’T BRING TEAM VICTORY Deficit at halftime result of shooting, leads to game loss TOLENTINO STAFF REPORTER | ANDI firstname.lastname@example.org
Trailing by 13 points against a Mid-American Conference opponent, Ball State had nothing to lose. The Ball State women’s basketball team shot just 24.1 percent in the first half against visiting Buffalo. One player who was consistent in both halves, though, was sophomore forward Nathalie Fontaine. Fontaine scored a career-best 30 points, shooting 10-of-18 from the floor and 10-of-12 from the free throw line. “Because we were down so much, it was just, attack,” she said. “Like we wouldn’t have [anything] to lose.” Though Ball State narrowed a 13-point halftime deficit, it still fell to visiting Buffalo 69-73. It took Ball State 10 minutes to score its first field goal. Up to that point, the Cardinals had scored two points on four free throw attempts. Ball State couldn’t get its shots to connect throughout the first half, causing it to fall behind quickly as Buffalo continued to take demand of the scoreboard. “Buffalo out-toughed us.” Sallee said. Ball State shot 7-of-29 in the first half, shooting just 2-of-14 from behind the three-point line. Things turned around in the second half. Ball State started to narrow the gap, as it shot 50 percent from the floor in the half. Every time Fontaine had an opportunity to drive to the basket, she was going head on, finding the open pocket and making big plays. Head coach Brady Sallee was impressed with Fontaine’s offense. “She put us on her back offensively and made a bunch of tough shots,” he said. “Offensively, she

was really, really good. There’s no question.” Fontaine shot 10-18 on the floor and 10-12 from the free-throw line. Her previous career high was 23 points, a mark she most recently reached against Western Kentucky, where she shot 6-of-15 from the floor and 11-of-12 from the free-throw line. The Cardinals hit 23-of-61 field goals as a team, and 6-of24 from three-point range. The team’s shooting from the first half to the second half improved dramatically. Sallee told the team at halftime
that they had to play through the adversity, and take “ownership.” “I thought it was important for us [the team] to kind of point the finger at ourselves and get it fixed,” Sallee said. Though the Cardinals were able to fight back, as if they had nothing to lose, it wasn’t enough. This is Ball State’s second consecutive loss giving them a record of 3-4 in the Mid-American Conference. “We had some issues out there making some shots early,” he said. “Dug ourselves a hole, and I guess to make it a game at all was a little bit surprising there at the end.”

‘UP ALL NIGHT’ TO GET GRAMMYS Daft Punk takes four awards, top artists collaborate radio hits | THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Imagine Dragons and Kendrick Lamar perform during the 56th Annual Grammy Awards at Staples Center in Los Angeles, Calif. Sunday.
The French electronic duo’s “Random Access Memories” won album of the year and their infectious hit, “Get Lucky,” won record of the year at the awards show. The song features Pharrell Williams and Nile Rodgers. Daft Punk, who sports helmets in public, won four awards, as did Pharrell Williams and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. “Well, I suppose the robots would like to thank ...” joked Williams, who also won non-classical producer of the year. “You know honestly, I bet, France is really proud of these guys right now.” Daft Punk also picked up honors for best dance/electronica album for “Random Access Memories” and pop duo/group performance for “Get
Lucky,” which earned Williams a trophy. Williams had seven nods, but competed with himself and could only take home four awards, which he did. While the men dominated, Lorde was the princess of the Grammys: Her hit “Royals” won record of the year and best pop solo performance. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis won best new artist and rap album for “The Heist,” beating efforts from Kendrick Lamar, Jay Z, Kanye West and Drake. “Wow, we’re here on the stage right now,” said Macklemore, thanking fans first, then his fiancee and team. “I want to say we made this album without a record label, we made it independently and we appreciate all the support.” The duo performed the gay-acceptance hit “Same Love,” and 33 couples — some same-sex — got married in the middle in the performance as Queen Latifah officiated. Madonna joined in wearing an all-white suit and hat, and sang “Open Your Heart” and some of “Same Love” with Mary Lambert.
Beyonce kicked ONLINE off the Grammys See one columnist’s with a steamy take on the show and smoky per- ballstatedaily.com formance of “Drunk In Love:” She started on a chair and then grinded in a revealing black outfit. Jay Z emerged in a fitted suit to rap his verse. Imagine Dragons and Kendrick Lamar collaborated onstage to create an electrifying performance, as the acts sported all-white and went from rap song to rock song. Robin Thicke performed with Chicago, singing the group’s hit songs before going into “Blurred Lines,” which energized the crowd. Thicke finished the performance singing on the floor. Perry sang “Dark Horse” in an eerie forest with fire that mirrored the song’s vibe, and John Legend and Taylor Swift — who whipped her head, and hair, back and forth — played pianos during their slow songs. Pink twirled in the air in her signature Cirque du Soleil-form.

BEST OVERALL LARGE FUND COMPANY The Lipper Award is based on a review of 36 companies’ 2012 risk-adjusted performance.
The Lipper award is given to the group with the lowest average decile ranking of three years’ Consistent Return for eligible funds over the three-year period ended 11/30/12.

TIAA-CREF mutual funds have achieved high rankings over various asset classes and market cycles. The 2012 Lipper/Barron’s overall ranking was determined by weighting five fund categories in proportion to their overall importance within Lipper’s fund universe. TIAA-CREF’s overall ranking was 10th out of 62 mutual fund families for one-year performance, and 29th out of 53 mutual fund families for five-year performance.
