Students not prepared for college experience Study shows students unaware of what to expect By Connie Shieh U-WIRE
LA JOLLA, Calif. – Although a vast majority of American middle school students say they plan on attending college after high school, only one-third of them are aware of what it will take to get there, according to a recent nationwide survey. The National Association of Secondary School Principals and educational association Phi Delta Kappa International collaborated to interview more than 1,800 seventh- and eighth-grade students about their college plans, discovering that an overwhelming 92 percent said they planned on pursuing a college degree. However, 83 percent of those same students knew close to nothing about the classes it would take to graduate – a number that teachers and school administrators nationwide are calling alarming.
Ninety-three percent of surveyed students were optimistic about their chances of success, saying that there was “no chance” they would drop out of high school before graduation. However, of the students who said they could not discount the possibility of dropping out, 40 percent cited poor grades and difficulty keeping up with coursework as reasons to discontinue their schooling. In fact, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported in 2006 that only 66 percent of students who believe they are collegebound will actually enroll. “Ninth grade is where a lot of students start running into problems academically,” Phi Delta Kappa Director of Marketing and Communications Delaine McCullough said. “It’s important to organize efforts to help students with that difficult transition between middle and high school.” During that transition period, students are expected to understand such concepts as the course credit system, which may be confusing and overwhelming, the study said. Eleanor Roosevelt College
junior David Polakoski said he would not have been adequately informed about the college process without the knowledge and help of his older sister. “I went to a private elementary school for kindergarten through eighth grade, and I don’t think they did very much to prepare me for college,” Polakoski said. “I don’t think I started getting a taste of what college would require until I began attending high school.” Alternatively, Monta Vista High School English teacher Andrea Kanda said she believes that students in her area are not only prepared for college by the end of middle school, but that the stress of these expectations can have negative consequences for students. “(Students) come into high school with the idea they need to take the AP and honors courses, with colleges becoming more and more picky,” she said. Study researchers, collecting data as part of the nationwide pro-college KnowHow2Go campaign, also analyzed the role teachers play in preparing their students for future success, and arrived at
mixed conclusions. Although they highlighted the ability to provide detailed explanations as a necessary trait of a good teacher, 8 percent of students said their teachers did not give them an adequate chance to learn specific subject material. Similarly, 72 percent of students indicated that only one to five of their teachers had ever been helpful in improving their educations. However, Phi Delta Kappa Executive Director Bill Bushaw said he believes the issue is more complicated than simply the effectiveness of the teachers themselves. “We are an increasingly information-oriented and innovative society,” Bushaw said. “Some level of college is now required for many jobs. Therefore, some schools are making changes; curriculum is changing; better assessment approaches are being developed. I think what’s unfortunate is that these things aren’t (being done) as quickly as they should.” More and more high schools in California, howev-
IU’s Mini University record-setting enrollment tops last year’s class of 468; program begins on June 17 Classes offer ‘educational vacation’ for adults –From IDS reports
For the first time in the program’s 35-year history, registration for IU’s popular Mini University has topped last year’s record-setting enrollment of 468, prompting organizers to close registration. Mini University is a program offering an “education vacation” program for adults, according to a press release.
The weeklong program begins June 17 and is co-sponsored by the IU-Bloomington Continuing Studies department and the IU Alumni Association. In the past, participants brought family, lived for a week in a college dormitory and attended a variety of lectures and courses while their kids attended a children’s program held at Shawnee Bluffs on Lake Monroe, according to a press release. Now the program is significantly different. There is no longer a children’s program,
and participants no longer live in the dormitories. Participants can choose from close to 100 short courses taught by IU faculty, offered mainly at the IU Memorial Union, which is also where a majority of participants stay. Evening activities now include a picnic, a trip to Brown County Playhouse and a reception at the University president’s residence, according to a press release. The IU Bloomington Continuing Studies department provides opportunities for adults to engage in lifelong learning.
Programs include general studies degrees, non-credit courses in lifelong learning and professional development and Mini University. All the programs draw upon the resources of IUBloomington and are offered on campus and at community locations in Bloomington and the surrounding area, according to a press release. Those interested in the program can call the IU Alumni Association to add their names to a wait-list or sign up for the Mini University 2008 mailing list.
er, have demonstrated awareness of the disparity in college preparedness and have implemented programs to ease the transition between middle and high school. In recent years, programs such as Link Crew, which pairs high school student volunteers with middle school students in a mentoring capacity, have appeared at various high schools around the country. Kanda, who is also a Link Crew adviser, said the changing environment for middle school students often worsens the already difficult transition process. “It is a whole new thing to them in terms of the big school, the student population size, having to be more responsible for themselves academically and having an open campus,” she said. “Being responsible is one big step they have to take.” Both Bushaw and McCullough said they support any program or initiative that aims to reduce the percentage of students that are unprepared for higher education.
FRESHMEN: Groups offers intense summer courses CONTINUED FROM PAGE 3 Associate Director for Student Support Roger Gildersleeve explained that during the summer, Groups has to set up the students in dorms and classes as well as schedule advising appointments for them. “It’s more work to prepare for than it is really to deal with them that day,” Gildersleeve said. Gildersleeve said the students attend classes two hours a day for five days a week. During select days, they have other activities such as meetings or activities with their class. “It’s a very intense program,” Gildersleeve said. “It’s like boot camp – at the end of boot camp, we always say, ‘Ah, it was no big deal,’ but every day we were sweating the load.” Wiggins added that during the summer, Groups students have to take six to eight credits to contribute toward their electives for graduation. Each student must earn a 2.0 GPA in order to remain in the program, she said. After the summer is over, Groups provides the students with resources through their sophomore year, and then they move into their academic studies. Students are allowed to come back during their junior and senior years. “Once a Groups student, always a Groups student,” Wiggins said.

San Francisco Giants’ Barry Bonds runs the bases after hitting his 750th career home run off Arizona Diamondbacks’ Livan Hernandez in the eighth inning of a baseball game Friday in San Francisco. The hit puts Bonds within six of breaking Hank Aaron’s home run record.
Bonds close By Janie McCauley The Associated Press
SAN FRANCISCO – Barry Bonds hit his 750th career home run Friday night, pulling the San Francisco slugger within five of tying Hank Aaron’s record. The 42-year-old Bonds watched the ball sail over the wall in right-center, then lowered his head and began his trot. The solo shot against Arizona starter Livan Hernandez leading off the eighth inning tied the game at three. The main center-field scoreboard immediately featured a road sign reading “Bonds 750” in the middle and “Road to History” on either side. Bonds drove a 3-2 pitch an estimated 380 feet for his 16th home run of the season and first in exactly a week since connecting off Yankees reliever Scott Proctor on June 22. It was Bonds’ first homer in 14 at-bats and 23 plate appearances and the fourth of his career against Hernandez, a former Giant, who last surrendered a home run to Bonds on Aug. 24, 2006. Bonds had an RBI single in the first Friday night, drew his 79th walk in the third and popped out in the sixth. He received a standing ovation when he walked to left field in the top of the ninth, tipping his hat to the crowd. Bonds’ batboy son Nikolai is nursing an ankle injury and wasn’t at home plate to greet him with a hug as is their typical routine. The home run came an inning after a fan gave everybody a scare when he hopped the fence and ran out to Bonds in left field. The seven-time NL MVP calmly greeted the man and walked him off and into the custody of security personnel. The fan came out over the short fence along the left-field line and scurried to Bonds while Orlando Hudson was batting. Bonds didn’t flinch, putting his arm around the man and walking him off the field – and fans began chants of “Barry! Barry!” The Giants have said they will beef up security during Bonds’ chase of Aaron’s 755. The club did a trial run with metal detectors at some gates Friday leading up to All-Star game festivities next month.

said the crimes were “totally out of character” for his son, who apologized for the attacks in court Thursday. Kyle Williams had suffered two concussions during the previous football season and Purdue officials said he had been released from the team at his own request days before the attacks. His father attributed Williams’ behavior to the brain injuries. However, his son’s attorneys did not raise the injuries as a defense. Attorney Kent Moore said the brain injuries did not rise to the level of a legal defense but the best explanation was that “something organic happened to him.” But Busch discounted Williams’ claims that the attacks were out of character. “There’s clearly a strong element of denial, of evasion, of dishonesty in these statements,” Busch said. “I think you need to come to terms with your own mind and try to find out how this happened.” Williams was one of the nation’s top high school prospects as a senior and was named a first team All-American by Parade, Rivals.com and Insiders. com, according to the Purdue 2005 football media guide.
EUROPA: League used by
awards; Carolina Panthers quarterback Jake Delhomme, and Indianapolis Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri. NFL Europa managing director Uwe Bergheim said the league had succeeded in establishing a fan base for football in important European markets. “Despite the great support of fans, business partners and the cities where we were active, we decided that it was time to change the strategy,” Bergheim said. The German teams were in Berlin, Hamburg, Duesseldorf, Cologne and Frankfurt. Some drew strong crowds – especially Frankfurt – and broad newspaper coverage. The spectators liked the party atmosphere in the stadiums, much more relaxed than soccer games with their often rowdy fans. But the league got little television exposure locally. Apart from the Super Bowl, no other NFL games are shown on free TV in Germany. “The disappointment and the frustration are great,” Hamburg general manager Kathrin Platz said.
WEST LAFAYETTE – A former Purdue linebacker has been sentenced to 37 years in prison for attacking two women on campus. Kyle Darnell Williams, 21, of Bolingbrook, Ill., is still awaiting trial in Illinois for a third attack. He was sentenced Thursday on one count of attempted rape and two counts each of battery and confinement. A jury convicted him in April. “The elements of the attacks are so similar that it appears to be ritualistic in some way,” Judge Thomas Busch of Tippecanoe Superior Court 2 said. Williams wore similar homemade masks in both Nov. 29, 2005 incidents and attacked the victims from behind, according to court records. While Williams was free on bond awaiting trial, DuPage County, Ill., authorities say he carried out a similar attack on another woman in a parking garage there. He still is awaiting trial on those charges. He also pleaded guilty Thursday to charges he broke into a teammate’s dorm room 19 days before the attacks and stole his laptop computer. Williams’ father, Steve Williams,
NFL to test younger players CONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 candidate for 2008. “NFL Europa has created thousands of passionate fans who have supported that league and our sport for many years,” said Mark Waller, senior vice president of NFL International. “And we look forward to building on this foundation as we begin this new phase of our international development.” The league began in 1991 as the World League of American Football, with 10 teams from the United States and Europe, spreading from Scotland to Spain. After closing for two seasons in 1993 and 1994, the league returned with six European teams and retained the same format until the end. The league was used by NFL teams to test young talent and produced players such as quarterback Kurt Warner, who led the St. Louis Rams to the 2000 Super Bowl championship and won two NFL MVP

Bloomington city pools open for residents as summer begins By Emily Gibbons firstname.lastname@example.org
Bryan Park Pool and Mills Pool opened Friday May 25, giving patrons the extended Memorial Day weekend to enjoy the water and sun. But the patrons were not the only people excited for opening day: the pool staff has been preparing for it for more than a month. IU student and lifeguard Nickie Schaad said she applied for rehire in February and called the pool once a week to find out when the new manager would begin hiring for the summer. Schaad and co-workers Whitney Stankovic, an IU sophomore, and senior Jenna McKee are returning lifeguards at Bryan Park Pool. Schaad, Stankovic, McKee and their co-workers began clean-
ing Mills and Bryan Park pools two weeks before they opened. In addition to the multiple professional certificates lifeguards are required to have, they also went through refresher training and pool procedures before opening day, they said. “They are really strict about training here,” Mckee said. Stankovic and Schaad nodded in agreement, saying they had training sessions every Monday during the summer. “We will live here this summer,” Stankovic said. Despite the strict training and long hours, the three lifeguards are happy to be back at the pool. “I love the kids and the people I work with. The people are definitely one of the things that make this job so fun,” Stankovic said. Andrea Basile, 15, is one of those people, and she did not
want to miss a moment of being at the pool. She had her mom drop her off at Bryan Park around noon on opening day. “Today I’m just here swimming laps,” said Basile. “But most of the time I’m either swimming laps or with my friends.” Basile and her family, including six siblings, live 10 minutes from Bryan Park and are regular pool patrons. She said coming to the pool is one of her favorite summer activities. “It’s a lot of fun to play around with my brothers,” Basile said. With five younger brothers, she said she enjoys being able to come to the pool because they have room to spread out but can still hang out together. Basile’s younger brothers range in age from 8-year-old twins to 13 years old. And although they have their big sis-
ter to look out for them while they are in the pool, not all the children enjoying the water are as fortunate. “In the first month the pool is open, there (are) a good amount of rescues,” Schaad said, “because there are a lot of young swimmers still testing their limits.” Stankovic agreed, saying, “Kids don’t know the rules or that the diving pool is actually... deep.” But fewer problems occur after the first month, Schaad said. She said the lifeguards work hard at enforcing the rules to prevent accidents before they occur. The lifeguards have the authority to make people take swim tests before going in deep water, and they said they pay special attention to children in the water by themselves.

Illinois threatens Hoosiers’ discounts Judge refuses to drop Bush threat -From Associated Press Reports
HAMMOND, Ind.– The state of Illinois is again threatening to stop giving Hoosier drivers a 50 percent discount when using electronic passes on Illinois tollways if Indiana doesn’t reciprocate. As it stands, Indiana drivers with I-Zoom transponders that electronically deduct tolls from preset accounts get the same half-off discount Illinois drivers receive on that state’s roads. But the Illinois Tollway Authority on Thursday approved terminating the accounts of 90,000 Indiana residents who use its I-PASS transponders if a resolution with the Indiana Toll Road is not found. Officials with the Indiana Toll Road originally said they would not offer Illinois residents the same 40 percent discount cars and motorcycles us-
ers of I-Zoom will receive. Electronic tolling is set to begin in mid-June on the first 23 miles of the Indiana Toll Road, from the Illinois border to Portage. No discounts initially will be offered to drivers, according to ITR Concession Co., the private firm that has a 75-year lease to operate the toll road. The discounts will start when electronic tolling is available on the entire 157mile stretch of highway. That was expected by the end of the year, said Matt Pierce, ITR’s director of communications and government relations. The Tollway Authority, ITR and officials from the Indiana Finance Authority and Indiana Department of Transportation offered a compromise Wednesday. Under it, only drivers using I-Zoom would automati-
cally receive a discount 40 percent below the cash toll. Drivers using Illinois’ I-Pass and E-ZPass would be required to sign up on a Web site, according to the Indiana Department of Transportation. Illinois officials said that was not acceptable. “We don’t want our I-PASS customers to have to jump through any hoops,” said Illinois toll authority chairman John Mitola. “We are just asking that a fair and equal discount be applied.” Indiana officials think the offer is fair. “I cannot fathom why the Illinois tollway would pull the discounts for Indiana residents because we require someone to sign up on a Web site and check a box,” said Joe Gustin, deputy commissioner at the Indiana Department of Transportation.
charge, clearing way for trial –From Associated Press Reports HAMMOND, Ind. – A judge refused to throw out a Purdue University student’s indictment on charges alleging he urged of the assassination of President George Bush and made threats against other administration officials. Friday’s ruling by U.S. District Court Judge James Moody clears the way for Vikram Buddhi’s trial to begin June 25 in Moody’s Hammond courtroom. Buddhi, an Indian national who was taking advanced engineering classes at Purdue’s West Lafayette campus, faces an 11-count complaint for alleged comments he made in an Internet chat room in 2005 and 2006. The indictment alleges that he made threats against the
president, Vice President Dick Cheney and their wives. He also made threats against then-Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and called for the bombings of the American infrastructure, it alleges. “It is now legal under international law to bomb key sites in the USA. Iraqis! Give Anglosaxons the tit reaction for the tat action of Bush and the Republicans,” Buddhi wrote in one posting, according to federal court records. Buddhi’s federal public defender, John Martin, has argued that Buddhi’s comments were protected speech under the First Amendment because they were intended to be “political banter” in opposition to the war in Iraq. For example, on a message board pertaining to defense con-
tractor Halliburton, Buddhi posted that “Bush is a President of Mass Destruction” and “should be electrocuted.” Martin compared the comments to a 1969 U.S. Supreme Court case in which an 18year-old war protester told a crowd at the Washington Memorial , “If they ever make me carry a rifle, the first man I want to get in my sights is LBJ (President Johnson).” The high court ruled the protester’s comments were simply crude political speech and overturned his conviction. Buddhi’s messages were posted on Yahoo! Finance message boards, although prosecutors say Buddhi attempted to conceal his actions by using someone else’s digital identity.

Couples in a hurry to be hitched elope to escape costs, planning
Announcements & Celebrations
By Greg Goin Daily Correspondent
Eloping has become more widely accepted than it was in previous generations. In some ways, it is looked down upon because of the couple’s choice to run away without telling anyone, but there are upsides to eloping over a traditional marriage. Money is the primary reason engaged couples decide to elope. According to www.yourwedding101.com, the average wedding costs approximately $19,104. Essential items such as bridal gowns, tuxedo rentals, transportation, food and invitations all have a cost associated with them that couples may not want to put themselves in debt for. Many couples who choose to elope put the money they would have spent on their wedding to better uses. The money they would have spent on unwanted guests, free bars and catering can now be used for their honeymoon or as a down payment on a new house. Don’t forget the planning of every intricate detail that goes into a large family gathering for the wedding. All of these elements can wreak havoc on the lives of the couples and put an unbelievable amount of pressure on their shoulders. Why not eliminate all of that stress
Las Vegas is the first place couples often think of when considering eloping, and for good reason — more than 120,000 weddings are held there each year. Photo: Courtesy/Stock and just have a small ceremony with a few witnesses? That allows the couple to relax on their big day and focus more on each other than getting caught up in all of the havoc of planning a wedding. Another key issue is time. Today, it is common to have a couple set a date up to two years in the future. They need all this time to make arrangements, book a ceremony, find a location for the wedding as well as the reception, caterer, florist — the list goes on and on.
While planning this, the couple also needs to consider all the guests, and attempting to please everyone may not be a realistic goal. If the time, stress and cost of a large wedding leads a couple to decide to elope, where can they go? Las Vegas always comes to mind when considering the “quickie” marriage, and is always one of the first things that pops into people’s heads when they hear the word “elope.” According to www.vegasarea-
guide.com, Vegas is one of the largest wedding destinations in the world, holding 120,000 weddings every year, with all of its convenient wedding chapels. But you do not have to go all the way to Vegas to elope. In fact, the Candle Lit Way Wedding Chapel in Dallas Center specializes in elopements and small weddings. The elopement package they offer is $295, which includes everything from a nondenominational minister to a wedding chapel marriage certificate, and everything in between.

‘Scary Kids’ holds on to grit
‘In the Valley of Elah’ strikes chord with emotions of war MOVIE continued from PAGE 7
By David Neff
Daily Staff Writer
Artist: Scary Kids Scaring Kids Album: “Scary Kids Scaring Kids” Label: Immortal Release date: Aug. 28 Availability: CD, iTunes, Ruckus The post-hardcore sextet Scary Kids Scaring Kids has avoided the sophomore slump with their self-titled second album. Their songs are still frantic and gritty, but the cathartic shrieks have, in many cases, given way to melody. However, this does not mean the band has lost its edge or sound like a condensed, flavor-of-the-month pop band.
To the contrary, the song “Snake Devil” is a fast-paced, raucous number with smart lyrics and some very catchy guitar parts that sound like they were taken from ‘80s metal. Other songs are mellower and give listeners a break from the nonstop pace of the album. Both “Derailed” and “Breathe” are relaxing enough to sound like they should be on a Vangelis album. In a genre filled with cliches, Scary Kids Scaring Kids seem to avoid the norm of angst-ridden young men screaming their lungs out without a thought to what they are saying. Rather, these guys seem to use their music to the greatest impact possible and have a solid album to show for it.

Hollywood elites gather to celebrate American Film Institute’s birthday By Ryan Pearson Associated Press Writer
LOS ANGELES — Warren Beatty leaned down to chat face-to-face with Kirk Douglas. Sylvester Stallone chomped on pineapple and glanced across the bar at Clint Eastwood. Angela Lansbury gawked at Jack Nicholson. Julie Andrews laughed with Billy Crystal. The American Film Institute threw itself a 40th birthday party on Wednesday night, inviting 11 Hollywood luminaries to introduce screenings of their classic films at the ArcLight Theatre. Oh, and movie fans were welcome, too — tickets were $25 including popcorn and soda. Reporters prodded Nicholson to measure the significance of the movie he was there to introduce, “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” (1975). “It certainly is one I get complimented on a lot of the time,” he said. “But I personally don’t
make lists.” Douglas, likewise asked about “Spartacus” (1960), said the film was most memorable for him because screenwriter Dalton Trumbo, who had been on Hollywood’s McCarthy-era blacklist, used his real name in the credits. But the emphasis for the invitees was on catching up with, in Beatty’s words, “old friends.” At a theatre bar before the screenings, Douglas sat as Andrews and others sidled up to say hello. Stallone posted up by the fruit plate before shaking hands with Lansbury, who popped a cheese square into her mouth. George Lucas called the invitees “an august crowd.” “Being from San Francisco, I don’t get down here very often, so I don’t really get to see a lot of these people except once in a while at big events like this,” he said. “We had time to chat, so that was good.” After the chats, the projectors rolled. In his introduction
Billy Crystal, left, reacts after actor Jack Nicholson kissed him as they arrive at AFI’s 40th anniversary on Wednesday in Los Angeles. Photo: Associated Press/Mark J. Terrill for “Star Wars” (1977), Lucas was accompanied by storm troopers. “When the movie came out all these people said, ‘Oh, it’s all about special effects, special effects. That’s why everybody wants to see it,’” Lucas remembered. “I said, ‘That has nothing
to do with it. It really does have to do with the story, the psychological underpinnings and the fun characters.’ And obviously after that they made about 500 bad special effects movies. … And even today, they don’t seem to get it.”
RIAA wins lawsuit worth $220,000 By Joshua Freed Associated Press Writer
DULUTH, Minn. — The recording industry won a key fight Thursday against illegal music downloading when a federal jury found a Minnesota woman shared copyrighted music online and levied $220,000 in damages against her. The jury ordered Jammie Thomas, 30, to pay the six record companies that sued her $9,250 for each of 24 songs they focused on in the case. They had alleged she shared 1,702 songs in all. Thomas and her attorney, Brian Toder, declined comment as they left the courthouse. In the first such lawsuit to go to trial, the record companies accused Thomas of downloading the songs without permission and offering them online through a Kazaa file-sharing account. Thomas denied wrongdoing and testified she didn’t have an account. Record companies have filed some 26,000 lawsuits since 2003 over file-sharing, which has hurt sales because it allows people to get music for free instead of pay-

ing for recordings in stores. Many other defendants have settled by paying the companies a few thousand dollars. During the three-day trial, the companies presented evidence they said showed the copyrighted songs were offered by a Kazaa user under the name “tereastarr.” Their witnesses, including officials from an Internet provider and a security firm, testified the Internet address used by “tereastarr” belonged to Thomas. Toder said in his closing that the companies never proved “Jammie Thomas, a human being, got on her keyboard and sent out these things.” “We don’t know what happened,” Toder told jurors. “All we know is that Jammie Thomas didn’t do this.” Richard Gabriel, the companies’ lead attorney, called that defense “misdirection, red herrings, smoke and mirrors.” He told jurors a verdict against Thomas would send a message to other illegal downloaders. “I only ask that you consider that the need for deterrence here is great,” he said.

warriors. It’s tragic and powerful to watch. Overall: A very powerful, if bitter view on the current Iraq war and its effects on soldiers. It’s also given strong wings by an intelligent and witty script by Paul Haggis, and supported by strong performances from the ensemble cast. This is one of the most important films of the year.
Radiohead is thinking about the future again. Ten years ago, the British band released their landmark album "OK Computer" — a masterpiece hailed as visionary for forecasting a soul-crushing, computerized dystopia. Sounds a little like today's music industry. On Monday, Radiohead sent shockwaves through the music biz with the announcement that its new album, "In Rainbows," will be released for download from www.radiohead.com on Oct. 10. The price? Whatever you choose. You elect how much to pay, be it $1, $15 or $100 (a special edition box set with a vinyl version and other items is also available for approximately $81). After releasing all six of their previous albums with Capitol Records, Radiohead doesn't currently have a record contract. "In Rainbows" will be available as a DRM-free MP3 download. Major labels aren't the only
ones pondering a potentially bleak financial future where the public expects recorded music to be free. Bands, too, need to find a solution, and Radiohead just proved they're as willing to experiment with distribution as with sonic soundscapes. Naturally, guitarist Jonny Greenwood announced the album in a Web posting: "The new album is finished, and it's coming out in ten days," he wrote succinctly. Radiohead's public relations firm shortly thereafter announced that there will be no advance copies or digital streams for press or anyone else before Oct. 10. This could be seen as a way of eliminating the possibility of the album leaking, which typically occurs via advance copies. Fans needn't download it illegally, since they can download it for a penny — or technically more like two pennies, because the lowest option is one British pence. Radiohead is now discussing contract possibilities with several labels, as the band is planning a traditional CD release for early next year.

By Linsey Lubinus Daily Staff Writer
Â OnÂ SaturdayÂ night,Â membersÂ ofÂ fourÂ studentÂ organizationsÂ willÂ comeÂ togetherÂ forÂ aÂ semi-formalÂ eventÂ calledÂ theÂ GlobalÂ Gala.Â SponsoredÂ byÂ ThisÂ isÂ YOURÂ AprilÂ andÂ producedÂ byÂ theÂ StudentÂ UnionÂ Board,Â theÂ secondÂ annualÂ GlobalÂ GalaÂ willÂ takeÂ placeÂ atÂ 7:30Â p.m.Â TheÂ eventÂ willÂ beÂ free. NealÂ Sneller,Â juniorÂ inÂ managementÂ andÂ aÂ committeeÂ memberÂ forÂ theÂ GlobalÂ Gala,Â saidÂ theÂ eventÂ isÂ toÂ demonstrateÂ multiculturalism. â€œWeÂ liveÂ inÂ aÂ worldÂ thatÂ isÂ quicklyÂ shrinkingÂ andÂ weÂ areÂ seeingÂ moreÂ andÂ moreÂ peopleÂ fromÂ allÂ over,â€?Â heÂ said.Â â€œItÂ isÂ importantÂ toÂ haveÂ someÂ sortÂ ofÂ culturalÂ sensitivityÂ inÂ todayâ€™sÂ changingÂ

world.â€? FourÂ studentÂ groupsÂ willÂ beÂ atÂ theÂ eventÂ toÂ showÂ offÂ someÂ ofÂ theirÂ nativeÂ culture.Â TheseÂ groupsÂ areÂ theÂ OrganizationÂ ofÂ LatinoÂ Students,Â theÂ PakistanÂ StudentÂ Association,Â theÂ Mexican-AmericanÂ YoungÂ AchieversÂ SocietyÂ andÂ theÂ ThaiÂ StudentÂ Association.Â EachÂ organizationÂ willÂ doÂ aÂ presentationÂ aboutÂ theirÂ culture. â€œItâ€™sÂ aÂ greatÂ chanceÂ toÂ seeÂ somethingÂ outÂ ofÂ theÂ ordinary,â€?Â SnellerÂ said.Â â€œItÂ isÂ aÂ chanceÂ toÂ meetÂ otherÂ peopleÂ throughÂ diverseÂ backgrounds.â€? WarisaraÂ Lertpaitoonpan,Â graduateÂ studentÂ inÂ civil,Â constructionÂ andÂ environmentalÂ engineering,Â isÂ theÂ presidentÂ ofÂ theÂ ThaiÂ StudentÂ Association.Â TheÂ ThaiÂ StudentÂ AssociationÂ willÂ beÂ performingÂ aÂ traditionalÂ ThaiÂ danceÂ calledÂ aÂ blessingÂ dance.Â LertpaitoonpanÂ saidÂ theÂ GlobalÂ GalaÂ willÂ beÂ aÂ goodÂ chanceÂ forÂ peopleÂ toÂ appreciateÂ otherÂ countriesâ€™Â cultures. â€œWeÂ areÂ proudÂ ofÂ ourÂ heritageÂ andÂ ourÂ cultureÂ soÂ weÂ justÂ wantÂ otherÂ peopleÂ toÂ knowÂ thatÂ
ThailandÂ hasÂ ourÂ ownÂ traditionÂ andÂ cultureÂ andÂ itÂ isÂ unique,â€?Â LertpaitoonpanÂ said. â€œWorldBeatâ€?Â DJÂ BobbyÂ AlemanÂ willÂ takeÂ careÂ ofÂ theÂ music,Â whichÂ willÂ alsoÂ beÂ fromÂ theÂ culturesÂ represented.Â TheÂ dressÂ isÂ semi-formalÂ or,Â ifÂ possible,Â traditionalÂ clothesÂ areÂ encouraged. OlamideÂ Shadiya,Â aÂ firstÂ yearÂ PhDÂ candidateÂ inÂ chemicalÂ engineeringÂ atÂ OklahomaÂ StateÂ University,Â attendedÂ lastÂ yearâ€™sÂ GlobalÂ GalaÂ andÂ saidÂ itÂ wasÂ â€œawesome,â€?Â andÂ promotesÂ attendingÂ thisÂ yearâ€™sÂ GlobalÂ Gala. â€œItÂ willÂ beÂ aÂ greatÂ opportunityÂ toÂ sampleÂ selectedÂ countries.Â IÂ know,Â comingÂ fromÂ Nigeria,Â IÂ wouldÂ likeÂ theÂ opportunityÂ toÂ learnÂ aboutÂ SouthÂ AmericanÂ cultureÂ orÂ AsianÂ culture,â€?Â ShadiyaÂ said. SheÂ saidÂ sheÂ isÂ gladÂ theÂ eventÂ continuedÂ afterÂ sheÂ leftÂ IowaÂ StateÂ andÂ sheÂ thinksÂ theyÂ shouldÂ haveÂ anÂ eventÂ likeÂ theÂ GlobalÂ GalaÂ atÂ OklahomaÂ State. ShadiyaÂ andÂ SnellerÂ bothÂ mentionedÂ theÂ foodÂ asÂ aÂ reasonÂ enoughÂ toÂ go.
Â DuringÂ WednesdayÂ nightâ€™sÂ meeting,Â theÂ GovernmentÂ ofÂ theÂ StudentÂ BodyÂ votedÂ againstÂ aÂ resolutionÂ thatÂ wouldÂ haveÂ supportedÂ aÂ libraryÂ fee. DavidÂ Hopper,Â universityÂ libraryÂ committeeÂ chairmanÂ andÂ professorÂ ofÂ veterinaryÂ diagnosticÂ andÂ productionÂ animalÂ medicine,Â attendedÂ theÂ meetingÂ WednesdayÂ andÂ wasÂ optimistic,Â evenÂ thoughÂ theÂ resolutionÂ wasÂ votedÂ downÂ byÂ aÂ voteÂ ofÂ 12-13-2.Â â€œIÂ guessÂ Iâ€™mÂ lookingÂ atÂ theÂ glassÂ asÂ halfÂ full,â€?Â heÂ said. HopperÂ saidÂ heÂ wasÂ pleasedÂ withÂ theÂ sincerityÂ ofÂ theÂ debateÂ andÂ wasÂ proudÂ ofÂ theÂ studentsÂ whoÂ votedÂ forÂ andÂ againstÂ theÂ resolution.Â AlthoughÂ theÂ senatorsÂ onÂ bothÂ sidesÂ ofÂ theÂ debateÂ hadÂ differentÂ viewsÂ onÂ theÂ proposedÂ fee,Â allÂ wereÂ supportiveÂ ofÂ theÂ library. â€œTheyÂ bothÂ votedÂ theirÂ conscience,â€?Â heÂ said.Â HopperÂ saidÂ theÂ UniversityÂ LibraryÂ CommitteeÂ willÂ beÂ goingÂ toÂ GraduateÂ andÂ ProfessionalÂ StudentÂ SenateÂ andÂ FacultyÂ SenateÂ meetings,Â whichÂ bothÂ haveÂ resolutionsÂ concerningÂ theÂ libraryÂ fee.Â â€œAtÂ thisÂ point,Â ourÂ mainÂ viewÂ isÂ toÂ moveÂ forward,â€?Â heÂ said. AfterÂ theÂ resolutionsÂ areÂ votedÂ onÂ inÂ theseÂ bodies,Â theÂ UniversityÂ LibraryÂ CommitteeÂ willÂ meetÂ andÂ decideÂ howÂ toÂ
proceedÂ withÂ theÂ process. HopperÂ saidÂ theÂ surveyÂ andÂ resolutionsÂ areÂ allÂ piecesÂ ofÂ informationÂ thatÂ theÂ SpecialÂ StudentÂ FeeÂ andÂ TuitionÂ CommitteeÂ willÂ evaluateÂ whenÂ consideringÂ theÂ fee. IanÂ Guffy,Â GSBÂ senatorÂ andÂ seniorÂ inÂ computerÂ science,Â votedÂ againstÂ theÂ bill.Â HeÂ saidÂ heÂ didnâ€™tÂ wantÂ aÂ coreÂ needÂ suchÂ asÂ theÂ libraryÂ beingÂ fundedÂ byÂ aÂ studentÂ fee,Â aÂ systemÂ setÂ upÂ toÂ fundÂ non-essentialÂ items. GuffyÂ saidÂ heÂ didÂ thinkÂ theÂ libraryÂ neededÂ support,Â andÂ heÂ wouldÂ beÂ pursuingÂ otherÂ optionsÂ asÂ viceÂ presidentÂ nextÂ session,Â makingÂ theÂ administrationÂ awareÂ ofÂ theÂ situation. â€œIÂ willÂ bringÂ upÂ thatÂ theÂ libraryÂ doesÂ needÂ toÂ beÂ supported,â€?Â heÂ said. AlthoughÂ GuffyÂ votedÂ downÂ theÂ bill,Â heÂ saidÂ heÂ wishedÂ thereÂ couldÂ haveÂ beenÂ anotherÂ outcome. â€œIÂ wasÂ reallyÂ disappointedÂ weÂ couldnâ€™tÂ getÂ aÂ compromiseÂ workedÂ out,â€?Â heÂ said. JeffreyÂ Rothblum,Â GSBÂ viceÂ speaker,Â GSBÂ representativeÂ onÂ theÂ UniversityÂ LibraryÂ Committee,Â authorÂ ofÂ theÂ billÂ andÂ seniorÂ inÂ aerospaceÂ engineering,Â saidÂ heÂ wasÂ disappointedÂ withÂ theÂ vote. â€œIÂ think,Â forÂ theÂ mostÂ part,Â theÂ debateÂ wasÂ good,â€?Â heÂ said. Rothblum,Â whoÂ willÂ beÂ graduatingÂ andÂ endingÂ hisÂ GSBÂ career,Â saidÂ heÂ doesnâ€™tÂ thinkÂ thisÂ issueÂ isÂ over.Â â€œThereâ€™sÂ clearlyÂ aÂ problem,Â soÂ weÂ shouldnâ€™tÂ justÂ dropÂ it,â€?Â heÂ said. TheÂ libraryÂ needsÂ money,Â RothblumÂ said,Â andÂ aÂ solutionÂ needsÂ toÂ beÂ chosen.

Arcade feel makes anthology fun

At a Glance:
By Steven Sifert Daily Staff Writer
In a time when video arcades are relegated to being simply a piece of cultural history, “Metal Slug Anthology” offers gamers a captivating and incredibly frantic arcade-style experience. This disc is a collection of the seven major entries in the “Metal Slug” series, starting with 1997s “Metal Slug” and moving through 2006s “Metal Slug 6.” Also included is “Metal Slug X,” essentially a remake of “Metal Slug 2.” In each of the games, you’ll find yourself playing a commando and taking on soldiers, robots, martians and various other enemies through multiple levels of 2D sidescrolling action. A large arsenal of weapons can be picked up throughout each stage, and at several points you’ll also
“Metal Slug Anthology”
Platform: PlayStation 2 Developer: SNK Playmore FYI grade: B+ be able to take control of various vehicles, or “Metal Slugs,” such as armored tanks and subs as well as gun-equipped elephants and ostriches. The visuals in the games are one of the series’ highlights. Characters are beautifully hand-drawn and often have hilarious over-thetop death animations. Sound effects in most of the games are repetitive. You’ll hear many of the same grunts from soldiers and the same explosions as buildings collapse around you. However, you probably won’t
notice too much, as there is a constant onslaught of audio effects being produced around you and your attention will be focused on dodging the next bullet or frying the next baddie. The music in the game is appropriately up-tempo and aggressive and often catchy. A 2-player cooperative mode in each of the games increases the on-screen mayhem and provides an extra bit of fun. Difficulty levels can be adjusted and players can
choose between unlimited continues or a set amount. There is also a set of unlockable art galleries for each game as well as soundtracks available from the get-go for your listening pleasure. Ultimately, “Metal Slug Anthology” is an awesome collection that recreates the excitement of the arcade in your own home. Any action game fan would do well to add this disc to his or her video game library.

the uninformed — fall continuously at an increasing speed and players must keep up for as long as possible. Seven other modes, all minor variations of the game, provide a nice distraction. The biggest flaw in the “Tetris Evolution” experience lies in the fact it exists on the Xbox 360, and most players will be using the standard 360 controller. The 360 directional pad is notorious for its inaccuracy and the problem certainly applies here in “Tetris Evolution.” While you might slip up a couple times, it shouldn’t impact your game significantly and there’s always the option of purchasing a third-party controller with a decent directional pad to remedy the problem. At $30, “Tetris Evolution” is half the price of most regular new 360 games, yet it still feels a bit overpriced for a game you can purchase on virtually any other
Twenty-two years ago, the original version of Alexey Pajitnov’s “Tetris” was released in the Soviet Union. In 1989, the game came as a pack-in with Nintendo’s handheld gaming system, Game Boy. It was on that system that the game reached megapopularity in the United States and helped sell millions of Game Boys to U.S. consumers. Since its inception, more than 100 officially licensed variations of “Tetris” have appeared on various platforms. The falling block puzzle is simply one of gaming’s greatest phenomena. I’ll skip the mechanics of “Tetris,” as I’m sure anyone reading this has experienced some incarnation of the game. The latest version finds its home on Xbox 360 as “Tetris Evolution,” and despite the game’s bold title, it offers little in

From the game’s start, players’ ears are greeted by the familiar Russian folk song “Korobeiniki,” also known as “Music A” on the Game Boy version of Tetris, which many associate as being the Tetris theme. It’s a nice touch that adds a good bit of nostalgia to the experience. “Tetris Evolution” features the classic “Marathon Mode” where tetrominoes — Tetris blocks, for
Joseph Francis allegedly dodged business’ taxes
By Sandra Chereb Associated Press Writer
RENO, Nev. — “Girls Gone Wild” creator Joseph Francis was indicted Wednesday on charges that his companies claimed more than $20 million in false business expenses. The federal indictment came one day after Francis was jailed on criminal contempt charges in Florida. The Nevada indictment alleges that Mantra Films Inc. and its marketing arm, Sands Media Inc., claimed false deductions on the companies’ 2002 and 2003 corporate income tax returns, the Department of Justice said in a statement. The indictment also charges that Francis, 34, of Incline Village, used offshore bank accounts and entities purport-

edly owned by others to conceal income earned in those years. “The government has chosen to make a criminal case out of what we believe to be at most a civil tax dispute,” said Jan Handzlik, a Los Angeles attorney representing Francis in the Florida matter. For 2002 and 2003, the government alleges Mantra overstated deductions by including more than $1 million for construction of a residence in Punta Mita, Mexico, as “false footage” and professional service expenses, and falsely claimed more than $1.9 million as insurance expenses. Francis makes an estimated $29 million a year from videos of young women exposing their breasts and being shown in other provocative situations. Justice Department officials said Francis is scheduled to appear May 22 before U.S. Magistrate Robert A. McQuaid. If convicted, he could face up to 10 years in prison and $500,000 in fines.

Gossip Madonna visits Malawi day care center run by her Raising Malawi organization
MASEKESE, Malawi (AP) — Madonna wore a T-shirt proclaiming “Love” and danced to the rhythm of a pop song at the opening of a day care center Thursday, one of the projects she’s funding in Malawi. The 48-year-old singer, who carried toddler David Banda in her arms, was greeted by singing children as she Madonna toured the center, run by local charity Consol Homes. Madonna picked up David, then 14 months old, from an orphanage in Malawi in October and took him to her London home. She is hoping to adopt the child. Her latest visit is to check on projects run by her Raising Malawi organization.
Angelina Jolie blames paparazzi for school mayhem during filming
NEW YORK (AP) — Angelina Jolie is no stranger to media frenzy. But while filming “A Mighty Heart” in Mumbai, India, last fall, the actress says things got out of hand. She blames the paparazzi for creating mayhem at a school where she was shooting scenes for the movie. Her bodyguards — who said they were Jolie trying to stave off photographers — were accused of physically blocking parents from picking up their children. The gates of the school had been locked during filming, and a fracas took place when they were opened. “It was not the film production that caused chaos,” Jolie, 31, tells Entertainment Weekly magazine. “We were only guilty of bringing the paparazzi.”
Feud between exes Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger flares in phone message
LOS ANGELES (AP) — The festering bad blood between
movie-star exes Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger erupted Thursday when an angry phone message from Baldwin to his daughter was made public. On the recording, Baldwin can be heard admonishing his 11-year-old, Ireland, “You are a rude, thoughtless little pig.” “You don’t have the brains or the decency as a human being,” he says, apparently upset that she did not answer her phone for a planned call. “I don’t give a damn that you’re 12 years old, or 11 years old, or that you’re a child, or that your mother is a thoughtless pain in the ass who doesn’t care about what you do as far as I’m concerned. You have humiliated me for the last time with this phone.” He goes on to say that he plans to fly from New York to Los Angeles “for the day just to straighten you out on this issue.” The recording was published by celebrity news site TMZ.com, which said that the call was placed on April 11.
The information in this log comes from ISU Police Department records provided to the Daily. All those accused of violating the law are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

age possession of alcohol. The incident occurred on April 14.

Sanjaya looks at life after `American Idol’: singing, acting, modeling
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Sanjaya Malakar said Thursday he did it his way on “American Idol” and he’ll take the same approach to a career that he hopes will encompass music, acting, modeling and whatever else comes his way. The morning after Malakar was voted off Fox’s hit show, the 17-year-old Malakar with the unique hairdos and hotly debated singing talent sounded tired but composed as he fielded questions during a teleconference. Malakar, from Washington state, said he was surprised by the outpouring of support he received _ “I’m just Sanjaya from Federal Way. ... I mean, it’s crazy.” As for critics, he avoided letting the potshots get to him. “It was a little hard but I try to make everything into a positive and try to learn from it,” he said. “I feel like I’ve grown. I’m more confident because I’ve had this experience. ... I’m ready to go out there and do it some more.” His near future includes a scheduled appearance Monday in New York on “Live with Regis and Kelly,” back home to Washington on Tuesday, the finale for “American Idol” next month and then an “Idol” concert tour with the other top 10 contestants.
April 18 n A found radio was placed into secure storage until the owner can be identified. n A staff member reported damage to a door. n An individual reported that credit card information was obtained by an unauthorized person through an online auction service. n A staff member reported seeing an individual who was possibly prohibited from being on campus.
