W.Va. behind in ACA enrollment by jacob bojesson staff writer @dailyathenaeum

With less than a week left to enroll in required health care under the Affordable Care Act, thousands of West Virginians have yet to sign up, with the March 31 deadline approaching. Officials from Valley HealthCare Systems and West Virginia Healthy Start, along with Barbara Fleischauer, a member of the West Virginia House of Delegates, held a press conference Monday to teach the public how to sign Mick Posey/THE DAILY ATHENAEUM up for health insurance. Barbara Fleischauer, vice chair of the Health and Human Resources Committee “You never know when you’re goat the WV House of Delegates, spoke Monday afternoon during a press confer- ing to get cancer or have a car wreck, ence at Valley Healthcare Systems. and you need the insurance that you

WVU student vets push for priority course registration By Anthony Pecoraro Sports Writer @DailyAthenaeum

Priority scheduling for student veterans has been a highly debated topic at West Virginia University, but not everyone agrees it should be a priority. Steve Robinson, University Registar, said giving scheduling priority has many different facets, and he had to take all situations into account before making a change. “What I told them at the time was that I would look into it and review the possibilities, but what they explained to me was not that they had an academic need for it, but rather it was a financial issue with how the veteran benefits were processed,” Robinson said. According to Dan Alexander, Navy Corpsman veteran and president of Veterans of WVU until February 2014, priority registration should be granted to all student veterans due to the strict schedule the G.I. Bill requires of veterans after they serve in the military. “You’re on a timeline, so we feel that priority registration is important for veterans because they need to get into classes earlier so they can be in a position to get into their major programs at that two-year mark and graduate within the time frame of the G.I. Bill,” Alexander said. Priority registration allows a student veteran to register in the first group. The student veterans, who depend on G.I. Bill benefits to pay for their schooling, contend they need this status for two reasons. First, the federal Department of Veterans Affairs will not begin processing payment for a veteran’s upcoming semester until a class schedule is submitted. Processing takes time, meaning the money sometimes doesn’t arrive before tuition is due and these student veterans can go weeks, if not months, with little to no money. The G.I. Bill pays for only eight semesters of schooling. If a required class is already filled, the student veteran must wait until the next semester it is offered, meaning the delay could push graduation beyond the eight-semester limit

you can talk to in person that will know everything.” Monongalia County has a lower rate of people with health insurance compared to most counties in northern West Virginia due to the fact that many West Virginia University students decided to not to sign up for health insurance, according to delegates at the conference. The University recently announced it will require students taking six or more credit hours to be under health insurance starting in the fall 2014 semester. Students who are not under their parents’ health insurance plan are often eligible to meet criteria for

and have the student veteran begin paying for their own tuition. The debate over whether student veterans should be granted priority registration began in December 2012 when student veterans submitted a petition to Robinson’s office. “We got a formal petition. We had 2,700 signatures on it. We submitted it to Steve Robinson in December of 2012, and we have yet to get an official response,” Alexander said. Alexander, who served two tours in Iraq, said no contact from Robinson’s office has been made and nothing has been done on the University’s end to address priority registration for student veterans, even though WVU has been nationally ranked as a “Military Friendly” school for five consecutive years by G.I. Jobs Magazine. Robinson, who has the final say over which students receive priority registration and which do not, is hesitant to change the current system of scheduling: priority scheduling goes to student-athletes, students in the Honors College and students with disabilities. “Usually we’re looking for the academic tiein. Will granting priority to a group of students help them make better progress toward a degree?” Robinson said. “We’ve eliminated some over the last four or five years because we didn’t feel that there was a good academic tie-in.” According to Alexander, the student veterans refused to wait any longer as this became a state matter a few months after the petition made no progress. On July 12, 2013, the West Virginia House of Representatives passed House Bill 2490, stating student veterans at all 22 public institutions receive priority registration. However, the words “where appropriate” within the law has kept student veterans at WVU from being approved. With Alexander claiming Robinson does nothing to benefit veterans at WVU, especially since he has the ability to award student veterans with priority registration, the two sides have only moved further apart.

can get,” Fleischauer said. “Especially young people think they’re immortal, so I think it’s important. You have to have car insurance, and you need to have health insurance.” According to Fleischauer, 17 percent of West Virginians under the age of 65 are not covered by any form of health insurance, a number she said needs to decrease. People who fail to meet the deadline may be subject to tax penalties and will not be able to enroll until Nov. 15 when the portal opens up again. “I wish the process was smoother, but it’s such an important thing that people need to make themselves do it,” Fleischauer said. “You can look at the website, but we also have people that

The West Virginia University Perley Isaac Reed School of Journalism held “From Beats to Tweets: Media Coverage of the Elk River Spill,” part of the University’s ongoing series “The Future of Media – NOW,” Monday evening. The panel gave students and residents of the Morgantown community an opportunity to hear how different types of journalists covered the Elk River Spill and how social media played a role in getting the information to the public. The panel consisted of six journalists, including Ashton Marra, David Boucher, April Kaull, David Gutman, Roger May and Eric Waggoner. All of these individuals either work in West Virginia or are from West Virginia and had to deal with the aftermath of the chemical spill in Charleston. The chemical spill happened Jan. 9, 2014, and roughly 300,000 residents were told their water was unsafe for drinking, showering, washing their hands or even washing their clothes. With the change in media and how people are receiving any kind of news, the news and media organizations

have to change the way they update their followers and listeners. Twitter and Facebook changed the way people heard about the news of the chemical spill. Waggoner, an associate professor of American literature and cultural studies at West Virginia Wesleyan College, wrote a blog, “Cultural Slagheap” about the chemical spill, which received 10,000 hits within the first 48 hours. “My family is all from Charleston, and I was bringing 10 cases of water to them because the water was undrinkable,” Waggoner said. “I was furious writing this, and I remember turning the corner and smelling the chemicals.” The panel of journalists discussed the ways in which their different organizations covered the chemical spill and the struggles they were faced with when getting the information they needed to tell their audience. Gutman, a reporter for The Charleston Gazette, made it a point to get the information that he needed so he could write the article and keep his readers and Twitter followers updated. “As a journalist, you have to be proactive and go out to find the information that you needed,” Gutman said. Gutman said that using social media as a way to get information out really fast can be a great thing, or it can

WVU to celebrate African culture this week by taylor mcsorley staff writer @dailyathenaeum

Africa Week has begun at West Virginia University, and the African Students Association is presenting five nights of events geared toward education, entertainment and community service. These events will focus on promoting the welfare of African students and the community. “During Africa Week, we hope to bring out both the education and entertainment aspects,” said Angela Mbamba, a senior international studies and social work student and vice president of the African Students Association. “Hopefully we can bring more joy and fun and really connect with all types of students, not only African students.” The first night of Africa Week begins this eve-

There will be students with posters set up who will freely answer any questions. The following night will include “Beats of the Motherland,” which will feature live performers. Live Afro-music, poetry and a variety of talents will be showcased in celebration of African culture. A documentary featuring “The Africa they do not show” will be shown on Thursday preceding a discussion about common misconceptions the media has generated about Africa. “I think the Media vs. The Real Africa night will be a real eye-opener,” Mbamba said. “There will be lots of media coverage coming to

Officials: Missing plane went down in Indian Ocean


Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak speaks during a press conference for the missing Malaysia Airlines, flight MH370, in A relative of a Chinese passenger aboard the Malaysia Airlines MH370 cries after being told the latest update in Beijing, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Monday. A new analysis of satellite data indicates the missing Malaysia Airlines plane crashed into a remote corner of the Indian Ocean. China, Monday. AP

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — After 17 days of desperation and doubt over the missing Malaysia Airlines jet, the country’s officials said an analysis of satellite data points to a “heartbreaking” conclusion: Flight 370 met its end in the southern reaches of the Indian Ocean, and none of those aboard survived. The somber announcement late Monday by Prime Minister Najib Razak left unresolved many more troubling questions about what went wrong aboard the Boeing 777 to take it so far off-course. It also unleashed a maelstrom of sorrow and anger among the families of the jet’s 239 passengers and crew. A solemn Najib, clad in a black suit, read a brief statement about what he called an unparalleled study of the jet’s last-known signals to a satellite. That analysis showed that the missing plane, which took off from Kuala Lumpur for Beijing early on March 8, veered “to a remote location, far from any possible landing sites.” “It is therefore with deep sadness and regret that I must inform you that, according to this new data, Flight MH370 ended in the southern Indian Ocean,” he said. His carefully chosen words did not directly address the fate of those aboard. But in a separate message, sent to some of their relatives just before he spoke, Malaysia Airlines officials said that “we have to assume beyond any reasonable doubt that MH370 has been lost and that none of those on board survived.”

Officials said they concluded that the flight had been lost in the deep waters west of Perth, Australia, based on more thorough analysis of the brief signals the plane sent every hour to a satellite belonging to Inmarsat, a British company, even after other communication systems on the jetliner shut down. The pings did not include any location information. But Inmarsat and British aviation officials used “a type of analysis never before used in an investigation of this sort” to zero in on the plane’s last direction, as it reached the end of its fuel, Najib said. In a statement, Inmarsat said the company used “detailed analysis and modelling” of transmissions from the Malaysia Airlines jet and other known flights to describe “the likely direction of flight of MH370.” Najib gave no indication of exactly where in the Indian Ocean the plane was last heard from, but searchers have sighted possible debris in an area about 2,500 kilometers (1,550 miles) southwest of Perth. High waves, gale-force winds and low-hanging clouds forced the multinational search to be suspended for 24 hours Tuesday, the Australian Maritime Safety Authority said in a statement. Australian Transport Minister Warren Truss, who is responsible for the search coordination, said Tuesday in Canberra the determination that the plane had crashed shifts the search to a new phase, but that it would be a difficult and long one. “The Malaysian announcement is purely based

on the satellite imagery that’s available, the calculations about fuel and capacity of the aircraft to stay in the air, so it’s really a long, long way away before much can be done by way of physical examination,” he said. He said that under international agreements governing air travel “Malaysia needs to take control” and decide how to proceed. Truss said the Australian naval supply ship HMAS Success had been in the area where objects had been spotted Monday, but its crew had been unable to find anything. He said he did not expect the search for debris would be scaled back in the short term. “Obviously, recovery of any kind of debris that may be related to the aircraft will be important for the investigative stage,” he said. “So it’s still important for us to try and find as much of the aircraft as possible.” There is also a race against the clock to find any trace of the plane that could lead them to the location of the black boxes, the common name for the cockpit voice and data recorders, whose battery-powered “pinger” could stop sending signals within two weeks. The batteries are designed to last at least a month and can last longer. The plane disappeared March 8. Some of the relatives who gathered to listen to Najib, met the news with shrieks and uncontrolled sobs. Others collapsed into the arms of loved ones. “My son! My son!” cried a woman in a group of about 50 gathered at a hotel near Beijing’s airport, before falling to her knees. Minutes

Marra covers the Capitol for West Virginia Public Radio and attended press conferences regarding the chemical spill and live tweeted the event. Not only were followers retweeting and favoriting the tweets, but they were actively asking questions that Marra

Marra said reporters need to know their sources, and even though someone may find them online, reporters should always be aware of where it’s coming from.

Continued from page 1 “The registrar here at the University, Steve Robinson, has made no effort to contact veterans, to work with veterans and is generally outright opposed to giving us priority registration,” Alexander said. To this statement, Robinson said he would have no problem meeting with anyone who wanted to speak to him. However, Robinson does not feel the student veterans deserve priority registration as he views it as more of a financial need rather than an academic one. “I’m happy to meet with anybody and discuss anything, but that doesn’t

mean that just because we’re meeting that they can be absent to rationale,” Robinson said. “We still have to have that academic tie-in to give them what they want. It’s got to meet that threshold. If it does, then sure, we’ll grant it to them.” Jerry McCarthy, director of Veterans at WVU, said he understands how scarcely priority registration is granted, but he still believes each student veteran in this state should be given priority registration, and said it’s more than just the right thing to do for them. “Veterans deserve our respect and our care and the best opportunities for success through education,” McCarthy said. “We are the model university, and we

In Kuala Lumpur, screams came from inside the Hotel Bangi Putrajaya, where some of the families have been given rooms. Selamat Omar, father of a 29-year-old aviation engineer aboard the flight, said in a telephone interview that he and other families were waiting for word about whether they would be flown to Australia, closer to where it is believed the plane went down. “We accept the news of the tragedy. It is fate,” Selamat said. But Sarah Bajc, the girlfriend of an American passenger, Texas-native Philip Wood, said that the announcement based only on data, without any recovered wreckage put resolution beyond reach. “I need closure to be certain but cannot keep on with public efforts against all odds. I STILL feel his presence, so perhaps it was his soul all along,” she wrote in an email. “Now Philip’s family and I will need some time for private grief.” After Najib’s announcement, some of the relatives of the Chinese passengers went before cameras to criticize the Malaysian officials who “have concealed, delayed and hid the truth” about what happened to the plane. About two-thirds of the passengers on board were Chinese. “If the 154 of our loved ones lose their lives, then Malaysia Airlines, the government of Malaysia and the military are really the executors of our loved ones,” said

a spokesman for the group who, like many Chinese, would give only his surname, Jiang. But the announcement does nothing to answer why the plane disappeared shortly after takeoff. More specifically, it sheds no light on investigators’ questions about possible mechanical or electrical failure, hijacking, sabotage, terrorism or issues related to the mental health of the pilots or someone else on board. Malaysia’s police chief reiterated Monday that all the passengers had been cleared of suspicion, but that the pilots and crew were still being investigated. He would not comment on whether officials had recovered the files that were deleted a month earlier from the home flight simulator of the chief pilot. U.S. deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes stopped short Monday of saying the U.S. had independent confirmation of the status of the missing airliner. He noted the conclusion of Malaysian authorities and said the U.S., which has been aiding the search, was focused on that southern corridor of the ocean. The search for the wreckage and the plane’s recorders could take years because the ocean can extend to up to 7,000 meters (23,000 feet) deep in that part of the ocean. It took two years to find the black box from an Air France jet that went down in the Atlantic Ocean on a flight from Rio de Janeiro to Paris in 2009, and searchers knew within days where the crash site was. An Australian navy support vessel, the Ocean Shield, was expected to ar-

rive in several days in the search zone, a defense official said. The ship is equipped with acoustic detection equipment that can search for the black boxes. Without them, it would be virtually impossible for investigators to say definitively what happened to the plane. “We’ve got to get lucky,” said John Goglia, a former member of the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board. “It’s a race to get to the area in time to catch the black box pinger while it’s still working.” The U.S. Pacific Command said before Najib’s announcement that it was sending a black box locator in case a debris field is located. The Towed Pinger Locator, which is pulled behind a vessel at slow speeds, has highly sensitive listening capability that can hear the black box pinger down to a depth of about 20,000 feet (6,100 meters), Cmdr. Chris Budde, a U.S. 7th Fleet operations officer, said in a statement. He called it “a prudent effort to pre-position equipment and trained personnel closer to the search area.” The U.S. Navy has also sent an unmanned underwater vehicle to Perth that could be used if debris is located, said Rear Adm. John Kirby, a Pentagon spokesman. The Bluefin-21, expected to arrive in Perth on Wednesday, has side-scanning sonar and what is called a “multibeam echo sounder” that can be used to take a closer look at objects under water, he added. It can operate at a depth of 4,500 meters (14,700 feet).

Student climbs Mount Denali, plans expeditions for others to enjoy BY NICOLE CURTIN A&E WRITER @DAILYATHENAEUM

People always say you should go after your dreams and reach for the stars, and one West Virginia University student is doing just that. Tyhree Moore, a junior sports management student, spent a good portion of his past summer climbing Mount Denali, the highest mountain peak in North America. Moore was just 12 years old when he decided he wanted to get involved in outdoor adventures, like the National Outdoor Leadership School’s Expedition Denali (NOLS). “I was part of a summer camp that flew me from Washington, D.C., to Jackson, Wyo., and it was my first time on a plane and seeing the mountains,” Moore said. “I noticed how much pleasure it brought me and the way being outdoors changed me as a person. I knew that it could definitely have this effect on others if they only had

someone to tell them about it.” After attending the City Kids Wilderness Project in Wyoming, Moore kept up with a variety of summer programs and began work with the NOLS. NOLS – which is a nonprofit outdoor education school based in the United States dedicated to teaching environmental ethics, technical outdoor skills, safety and judgment and leadership on extended wilderness expeditions – took him all over the country. Moore has even spent a summer in Alaska working with other leaders as a NOLS counselor and helping to set kids up for their own outdoor trips. Moore said the experience of climbing Mount Denali has been rewarding and life-changing. “My favorite part of Expedition Denali was the project inspiration aspect of it all,” Moore said. “Being able to tour around the country and speak to schools and clubs was definitely a touching expe-

rience. Seeing so many different reactions from children, teens and adults about what we did on that mountain was just really moving. I never really knew how big of a project it was until I got the opportunity to share the story.” Expedition Denali has been speaking to schools all across the country ranging from elementary to college, and Moore did a presentation at WVU in February. Moore was the youngest member of the team that climbed Denali, which was the first African American team of climbers to do so. Moore has plans to continue working with NOLS to reach out to other young people interested in getting outside to take advantage of their surroundings. “This summer, I’m actually thinking about taking an instructors course to work for NOLS and lead trips,” Moore said. “Some advice I would give to anyone looking to get involved in the outdoors is go for it.

Tyhree Moore pauses for a photo during one of his most recent expeditions. It’s right here where we go to school. There are a ton of places we can access, and there is a ton of things to do outside, so if one thing isn’t for you, don’t turn your back on the outdoors altogether.” Moore said his time on these trips and the expedition has taught him more

about himself. “Traveling around and speaking has definitely changed me as a person, because I learned that anyone can have an impact on their community,” Moore said. “I know that I can have a positive effect on people around me and go beyond my friend group. I


never thought that before, and that has really helped me become a better person and try to lead by example.” At the moment, Moore said he doesn’t have plans for any big trips like Denali, but there will be more big climbs in his future. daa&

‘Muppets Most Wanted’ falls short of ‘The Muppets,’ features celebrity cameos Carly Smith A&E WRITER @dailyathenaeum

««««« “Muppets Most Wanted” came to theaters Friday, giving fans more of the heartfelt but hilarious content that truly embodies the puppets. The film was a sequel to the last featurelength Muppets film that graced theaters in 2011, “The Muppets.” Despite the fact “Muppets Most Wanted” did not do as well in the box offices during opening weekend as “The Muppets,” it still managed to grab the No. 2 spot behind “Divergent,” grossing $16.5 million. While Kermit and the gang did not seem to entice as many viewers this time, those who did see it felt right at home with the

characters and another Muppet caper storyline. “Muppets Most Wanted” opens literally where the last movie left off, beginning with “the end” written across the screen as it was at the end of “The Muppets.” The beginning of the movie followed Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear and the newest Muppet, Walter, as they try to decide what to do next after the success of getting “The Muppet Show” back together. Kermit and the other Muppets are approached by Dominic Badguy, an international tour director who wants to take the Muppets on a world tour based on the great success of their show. While most of the Muppets want to take this opportunity, Kermit feels uneasy. After some persuading by Walter, Kermit agrees, and

Dominic Badguy schedules a tour across Europe. At the same time, the world’s most dangerous frog, Constantine, had escaped from the Gulag prison in Russia, which is reserved for the most dangerous criminals. Constantine looks exactly like Kermit, however he has a mole on his face. Little do the Muppets know, Dominic Badguy is working with Constantine to frame Kermit and use “The Muppet Show” as a cover to steal the British crown jewels. Dominic Badguy convinces Kermit to go for a walk through the east side of Berlin, where Constantine slaps a mole on Kermit’s face and brings attention to him, leading to the cops being called and Kermit being taken to Gulag. The show continues with Constantine putting green makeup over his


Jennifer Aniston says she won’t let tabloids steal her joy LOS ANGELES (AP) — Despite spending nearly half her life under the glare of the cameras, Jennifer Aniston admits she’s still not used to baggage that comes with it, from paparazzi to the tabloid headlines. “All that stuff, it’s toxic,” says the actress. “It never gets un-jarring, but you do have to not let it imprison you, which is possible too.” To that end, she has her way of insulating herself – sticking tight to a close

group of friends and not believing the hype that envelops her. “There’s times when you see people climbing and getting success and you start to see, oh, they’re starting to really change. So I always just make the effort to be as humble and grateful as possible,” she said. She certainly seemed that way when she spoke to The Associated Press last week. Despite the swanky setting – a hotel presidential

suite – the actress sat on the floor eating a celery stick dipped in ranch dressing as she talked about her latest project, an online digital short for Aveeno, which she represents. Looking chic but laid back in a ponytail, darkrimmed glasses and a slim black blazer, Aniston chatted about challenging herself in her career, a possible sequel to last year’s “We’re the Millers,” her fiance, Justin Theroux, and turning 45.

AP: You’re a beauty pitchwoman. What’s the weirdest beauty regimen you’ve tried? Aniston: I don’t go out too crazy. You mean like did I ever put leeches on my face? ... The closest I’ll ever go is a dermaroller. Google it - it’s great. It’s like a little wheel that has little pins, like acupuncture needles in a way, and you roll it and it stimulates your collagen and it also allows for your products to seep into your skin. AP: You’re doing a sequel to “Horrible Bosses.” Any other characters from your past you’d like to revisit? Aniston: I think Rose and the Millers would be fun, to kind of see where that’s going to go, and I know we’re probably going to do another one of those. AP: You recently celebrated your 45th birthday. Do you pause to reflect on such milestones? Aniston: I guess it is a milestone. I really try not to focus on it too much, to be honest. Society focuses on it way more than we need to. I think it’s always important to reflect anyway, no matter what age

you’re approaching or what milestone is in front of you. Reflection should be almost a daily thing if possible. Because I was never a `where do you see yourself in five years’ person. I had no idea, and I didn’t have a checklist, which really creates a lot less stress in your life. AP: Though you may not have a checklist, are there other things you want to achieve in Hollywood? Aniston: I just want to keep trying to surprise myself and I want to keep challenging myself and have the courage to really do that, in spite of possible failure. AP: Is that harder or easier when you’re in the spotlight? Aniston: You just have to work really hard to tune out the noise and the static. Because it gets louder, and people really have an opinion, and you don’t want to shy away from taking chances for fear of what people will say, or living in the wreckage of the future (of) what may be if I do this. AP: You’re producing and starring in the upcoming drama “Cake.” How interested are you in more work behind

the camera? Aniston: It’s almost more interesting. I think there’s something so wonderful about being part of the process from the seed of the idea to seeing it come to life on a screen. And to have a hand in that creatively, not just showing up as an actor for hire. AP: Will you write and direct? Aniston: I can’t write. I would love to. I don’t really have an interest in it, to be honest. I’ll leave that to my fiance. AP: At this point, do you just laugh off all the speculation about your wedding and your future? Aniston: It’s on a level that I don’t even understand. It’s weird. I think because we are so normal. We’re very nonfabulous in any way. They try to create all sorts of narratives to go with a very normal, wonderful life that’s just two people loving each other and living life and working and doing the best they can. AP: Does it detract from that joy at all? Aniston: Oh, God no. If it did, I would be dead.

mole and pretending to be Kermit. All of the Muppets think he is really Kermit, so they listen to Dominic Badguy as he drags them across Europe, escaping each show to rob a different museum for a clue to where the British crown jewels are. Constantine plans to marry Miss Piggy disguised as Kermit, then blow up the Muppets at the wedding so he and Dominic can escape with the jewels. Kermit has to try to escape the Gulag to stop the wedding before Constantine and Dominic Badguy ruin the Muppets forever. “Muppets Most Wanted” is hysterical and includes many funny songs throughout the movie. The movie also includes 24 celebrity cameos from the likes of Tina Fey, Ricky Gervais and Ty Burrell,

who were the main “humans” in the movie. The cameos ranged from Lady Gaga to Usher and left the audience waiting to see who would pop up next. Although this Muppet

adventure didn’t do as well as the last movie, it was fun nevertheless and kept the audience laughing and entertained. daa&

Big names in journalism turn backs on future Print journalism certainly isn’t dying. But it’s definitely morphing into something new. Social media is invading every aspect of news and reading. Most stories are broken on Twitter or Facebook, or at least start the ripples of a larger story. And any newspaper, magazine, journal or other text that ignores this change will be left in the dust. Social media is no longer just a way to connect with friends. It’s a way to share

stories and stay up to date on the latest information. If used the right way, social media accounts can be the liaison between print editions or broadcasts and the web. One of the best ways news outlets can use social media is to reach out to their readers to provide them with updates to developing stories, which can go into more depth in the paper or radio program. Media outlets in Charleston should be commended

for their spectacular use of social media as a way to keep their readers (other news outlets) up to date on the situation. The Charleston Daily Mail held a water drive during the chemical spill water crisis earlier this year and tweeted out the locations each day. After the larger networks left both the area and the developing story, the Charleston news worked to keep their readers and followers in the loop, showing

them neither the people nor the issue had been forgotten, and they were still investigating. As some reporters covered events surrounding the chemical spill, they were able to live tweet special sessions and answer citizens’ questions as they arose. But it doesn’t have to just be the journalists reaching out. Eric Waggoner, an associate professor of American literature and cultural

studies at Wesleyan College wrote a blog post, “Cultural Slagheap.” that managed to draw in 10,000 views in less than 24 hours. Citizens can also use web-based platforms to connect with each other in times of crisis and share their stories, to show they aren’t alone. People like Waggoner can even offer perspectives that reporters can use to investigate accidents and suspicious activity further. It is the responsibility of

newspapers, radio, magazines – all sources for news – to offer the most current and accurate information to their readers, and using social platforms such as Twitter can be invaluable. While we can’t speak for other cities, we at The Daily Athenaeum do appreciate the willingness of the journalists of West Virginia for going above and beyond to reach out to as many citizens as possible.

Paleo Diet, more than just a fad? HANNAH CHENOWETH COLUMNIST

Fad diets being heavily publicized in the media are nothing new. Some of these diets err on the bizarre side, and others are simply impossible to maintain. However, one diet plan that has captured a lot of positive attention lately is the Paleo Diet. The Paleo Diet’s effectiveness seems to lie in the fact it is not a quick cleanse or two-week program promising dramatic results. Instead, it’s an entire lifestyle change that doesn’t just promise weight loss and maintenance but also an overall improvement of health, energy levels and body composition. Many diseases are also claimed to be prevented by adhering to the Paleo Diet. So, what is this so-called Paleo lifestyle all about? According to the official Paleo Diet website, it is based “upon the fundamental concept that the optimal diet is the one to which we are genetically adapted.” That’s where the “Paleo” part comes from. It refers to the food groups consumed by hunter-gatherers in Paleolithic times. The theory is that a modern diet, packed with carbs and highly processed foods, is to blame for most of our society’s health

issues. Many chronic illnesses, like type 2 diabetes and heart disease, are described as “diseases of civilization.” In other words, many diseases can be prevented by reverting back to the diet of our ancestors. This diet entails saying goodbye to grains and dairy. Paleo supporters are against refined carbs and sugars. They believe if the cavemen didn’t eat it, we shouldn’t eat it, apart from a few exceptions. Our bodies have evolved to thrive on the nutrients in whole foods such as plants, meat and seafood. Meateaters that are interested in going Paleo can get excited that yes, the Paleo Diet is carnivore-friendly! Besides allowing meat, a good thing about the Paleo Diet is that there are a variety of approaches one can take. There aren’t definitive rules but guidelines on the right way to eat. There’s no calorie-counting, and all the fruits, vegetables and lean meat should leave you with a full, satisfied feeling. Two-thirds of a Paleo Diet plate should be comprised of vegetables. High-protein and high-fiber are definite “do’s”, as are eggs, nuts, seeds, and healthful oils. Carbs, dairy, refined sugars, legumes and high sodium are to be avoided. Inflammatory foods are to be steered clear of, which include most

products that come in a box or bag at the grocery store. These processed foods are said to inflame the body and upset the immune system. One drawback is the Paleo Diet can be a little pricey, considering that the produce and meat sections of the grocery store tend to be the most expensive. Health is certainly something that is worth spending a little extra money on, but it can be difficult for a college student to maintain. It also requires more frequent trips to the grocery store because of the emphasis on eating vegetables, which will rot quickly. As far as exercise goes, it isn’t a key component of the Paleo Diet, although it’s definitely recommended. Our hunter-gatherer ancestors were certainly not sedentary but always on the move without thinking of it as exercise. Energy levels are said to be extremely high on the Paleo Diet, because your blood sugar is not spiking and crashing. Whole foods without preservatives cause your body to run more efficiently. Paleo Diet recipes can be found online with a simple Google search. “The Paleo Diet” by Dr. Loren Cordain is also a great read to learn more about the Paleo lifestyle.

How to stop conforming and start living your dream MEGAN PATIRY ACADEMY OF ART University

At this moment, you’re a conformist. Most likely, you’re attending college in order to obtain a degree in a highpaying field and enter the workforce, where you’ll snag an internship with hopes of being hired on full-time. Following full-time employment, perhaps you’ll get engaged, married and find a nice home in a suburb and start thinking about babies. Keep in mind, there’s nothing wrong with this; it’s the path you’ve been set on by your parents and the one most of us follow in order to become productive, fulfilled citizens. It’s the American Dream. Or perhaps, according to a survey featured on NBC News via Careerbuilder, it’s the conformist’s path. The survey highlighted that more than four out of five U.S. workers claim to not have their dream jobs, which translates into roughly 84 percent. What is interesting about the individual responses to what constitutes a dream job is that salary was listed as “one of the least important requirements.” However, when we apply this to college majors, we find a surplus of articles and lists revealing the “The College Degrees with the Highest Starting Salaries” or the “Top 10 Highest-Paying College Majors,” that list professions such as engineering


and certain medical fields promising six-figure salaries. So at the end of the day, we have a huge pool of students attending college, majoring in fields promising to pay decent salaries, and then 84 percent of them saying they aren’t working in their dream field and that salary wouldn’t matter as much if they were. So what can be done about this seemingly unavoidable dream gap? How can you follow your dreams when they seem to go against societal norms, and ensure that you’re on your path to happiness? Discover what and who you want to be Victoria Brewood, graduate and writer at Pommie Travels, said to ask yourself “Am I doing it because I want to, or because it’s what society tells me to do?” Take a few minutes or, hey, maybe even a week or so, and determine what you love doing when you’re not surrounded by outside opinions. Stop reading about how “worthless” the major you’re interested in is portrayed in articles online, and stop thinking about how you should be a nurse or an engineer because “at least you’ll be rich” even if you have no passion for science fields. Instead, search for people who’ve had success in the field you’re interested in and find out how they got there. Once the public presumptions regarding your intended field have been put to rest, start thinking about how you could make what you love doing, work. Create a vision board of your dream

and a career “map” that will get you there. Find your niche Finding your niche is usually crucial to finding the dream career, and sometimes, you may have to create it. This is the stage that many discover that perhaps they don’t want to work for someone, but would be happier owning a small business. For example, if you love cooking but don’t like the idea of being just another cook on a line at a franchise, find out how you can take your love and turn it into a unique experience for customers. Ask yourself what it is you cook best, and if you could turn that into a productive business venture. The same goes for inventions: do you have an idea you want to bring to reality? Thanks to crowd funding sites such as Kickstarter, you can receive the funds to make it happen. Take the Minaal travel bag funded through Kickstarter that received tons of attention for its simple premise: the bag needed to be suitable for hiking but also business-meeting appropriate. The founders, Jimmy Hayes and Doug Barber, were selfproclaimed passionate travelers, but instead of looking at travel as just a vague idea, they took their love for backpacking and focused it on, you guessed it, the backpack. They found a niche within their passion. A niche may also include – say, if you’re interested in graphic design – specializing in logos, websites or banners, or even launching your own creative de-

sign boutique. The idea is to dig deep into your interests, and find a profitable niche for them. It may take quite a bit of research, but there are specializations for nearly every career if you look for them. Surround yourself with like-minded individuals This goes back to finding individuals who are successful in the field of your interest, and discovering how they got to where they are. Do a little research on what they majored in, and perhaps even send them an email asking how they did it. Also, if you’re undecided in your major or career, observe your reactions to your current environment. Do you enjoy working with your “colleagues” in your classes or at your job? Do you feel like a member of the team? Take stock of whether you would actually enjoy working with these types of individuals until retirement. Rethink “crazy” “... in the wonderful city of Chiang Mai, I met five backpackers who showed me that I didn’t have to be tied down to my job and that I didn’t need to be rich to travel. After that trip, I went home, finished my MBA, quit my cubicle job, and, in July 2006, set out on an adventure around the world,” said “Nomadic” Matt, founder of the blog Nomadic Matt, whose advice has been featured in Time, The New York Times, and on CNN and many other sources. Although travel-specific, Nomadic Matt represents the individuals set on living their dreams and escaping

the “office” lifestyle, no matter how crazy their dreams may seem. His methods are unconventional and require effort, but are worth it in the pursuit of a truly fulfilled life. In his article “Everyone Says I’m Running Away,” Matt wrote: “People assume that we are simply running away from our problems, running away from ‘the real world,’ and to all those people who say that, I say to you, you’re right ... I am running away. I’m running away from your idea of the ‘real’ world. I’m avoiding your life. And, instead, I’m running towards everything – towards the world, exotic places, new people, different cultures, and my own idea of freedom.” When we’re young, it’s a common feeling to want to

belong and to feel as though we’re a part of something bigger than ourselves. This becomes a problem, however, when we, as individuals, fail to account for our own interests apart from those of our friends’ and society’s. The desire to belong then becomes so strong that we begin to fear the idea of following our dreams because they’re so apart from everyone else’s. But ... that’s the idea, isn’t it? It’s the reason we love a good underdog or hero story – they don’t conform or pursue others’ ideas of how their lives should be lived. They embrace their own life, regardless of the judgment of others. They unabashedly pursue their goals and fearlessly tread the path less traveled. They run toward their dreams.

Irish Tenors supply traditional music


Finbar Wright, Anthony Kearns and Ronan Tynan, members of the PBS musical singing group The Irish Tenors, performed at the Creative Arts Center Sunday night.


The Irish Tenors, accompanied by the Creative Music Solutions Orchestra, brought the Emerald Isle to the Creative Arts Center Sunday night. The Irish Tenors, a trio comprised of Finbar Wright, Anthony Kearns and Ronan Tynan, have brought their love of Ireland’s musical heritage to the stage since the group formed in 1998. They have completed several successful performances around the world, including tours in the U.S., Australia, New Zealand and Canada. Their sold-out shows at the Hollywood Bowl, the Sydney Opera House and Radio City Music Hall prove their talent, and they have touched many hearts over the years with hit songs such as “Danny Boy,” “Fields of Athenry” and “Whiskey in the Jar.” The Creative Music Solu-

tions Orchestra, conducted by Lloyd Butler, is a music organization composed of talented professors and students at West Virginia University. Bulter serves as the conductor for the proficient trio and has conducted for several artists, such as American pop opera singer Neal Boyd, English singer Petula Clark and American singer Judy Collins. Members of the orchestra tuned their instruments in preparation for the performance, as audience members filled the Lyell B. Clay Concert Theatre. The evening began as Butler made his entrance to the stage, followed by the generous applause of concertgoers. He began to paint a picture of what the night was to hold – the orchestra played light, cheery pieces, as well as deep, colorful Irish tunes. Audience members gave a hearty round of applause as The Irish Tenors walked on stage and took their places. The group’s impres-

Tattuesday Double Feature

sive harmony and operatic voices combined with Butler’s flawless conducting was something to behold. The group sang about themes all audience members could relate to including family, love and loss. The trio used the vibrato and control of their voices to their advantage, and the sound reverberated against the walls to the very last row of the theater. Kevin Tenney, a previous voice student at WVU, said he thoroughly enjoyed what each member of the trio brought to the performance. “I thought it was great. I liked the different sounds of the different voices,” Tenney said. “Ronan Tynan has more of a brighter sound, Andrew has a more colorful voice and adds a more colorful texture and Finbar Wright has a wider lift and wilt to his voice. I really liked the combination of all the styles together.” However, many of the

The Irish Tenors performed with the Creative Music Solutions Orchestra. stand-out, heartfelt performances of the evening were performed by individual members of the trio. “Grace,” performed by Kearns, was a song that touched many audience members. The song, Kearns said, was about Grace Gifford marrying Joseph Plunkett only an hour before he was to be executed. “The Old Man,” sung by Tynan, was another song packed with raw emotion but for a

different reason. Before he sang, Tynan talked about his father and the fond memories he had with him before he passed away. With performances that continued to amaze, it came as no surprise the audience wanted an encore. They gave the trio and Butler a standing ovation as they took their final bows and exited the stage. After a brief moment filled with applause, the perform-


ers joined the stage once more to perform hit songs “Danny Boy” and “Whiskey in the Rye.” Tenney said he couldn’t have asked for a better performance. “There was not one song that I didn’t like, to be honest,” Tenney said. “(To) the people that didn’t come to see it – you really missed out.”

Lady Gaga releases video for ‘G.U.Y.’ Jake Jarvis A&E WRITER @dailyathenaeuM


Arabia Anderson, a communication studies student, has a tattoo of a phoenix and a quote because she likes what both stand for; ‘beauty, strength and rebirth.’


Kayla McCormick, an English student, has a tattoo of her parents on her inner arm. “I miss my parents and when I feel like I need them, they’re there,” McCormick said.

Lady Gaga’s latest music video “G.U.Y.” exceeds expectations for longtime fans. “G.U.Y.,” which stands for “girl under you,” tells the story of Gaga’s latest bout with the music industry. Known for lengthy productions, the 27-year-old pop prodigy has outdone herself this time. Instead of just getting one music video, we’ve basically gotten three. Songs “Artpop,” “Venus” and “MANiCURE” are also included in the “G.U.Y.” music video. The nearly 12-minute film opens up in a Californian field. Gaga, as a beautiful, winged creature, lies fallen in a crater in the earth. Surrounding her are presumed music moguls, grabbing at money that is falling from the sky. After the men have gotten their money, they leave Gaga there to die. In her back is an arrow, piercing through to her heart. From this point, Gaga crawls to find help. She is ultimately healed in the cool waters of the Hearst Castle pools, as gender-bending dancers parade around in out-ofthis-world fashion. To get back at the men who left her, Gaga crafts an army of well-dressed men to invade the music industry. Near the six-minute mark, Gaga and company bust into a business headquarters. She points an air gun in the air, shooting money across the screen. This serves as a distraction and allows her to sneak in and kill the men in charge. This video probably di-

Lady Gaga dances in the Hearst Castle in her new music video for ‘G.U.Y.’ rectly references Gaga’s recent parting with long-time manager Troy Carter in November 2014. Although the official reason for the split was cited to be “creative differences,” I have a feeling it had a lot to do with money. Carter is known for being one of the best in the business. He can take a product and milk more money from it than anyone else. I think it’s safe to say he treated Gaga like a product, which clearly did not sit well with her. Throughout each different scene in the video, Gaga shows a different side of how she feels in charge being “on the bottom.” In the first part of “G.U.Y.,” it’s a religious submission. Later, it transforms into sexuality. “Sometimes, it’s nice to not have to be in charge all the time,” Gaga said in an interview with SiriusXM studios. “It’s okay to let other people take charge sometimes, as long as you’re smart and cunning and have your wits about you.” Joining Gaga in this video are some Hollywood favor-

ites, such as a few of the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” and Bravo’s very own Andy Cohen. During the chorus to “Venus,” the real housewives are dressed in all pink, spread out over a marble staircase and playing acoustic instruments including a guitar and tambourine. Possibly the greatest moment of this video is watching Yolanda Foster try to play the cello. That’s right. Yolanda Foster tried to play a cello. The housewives love doesn’t stop there. Later, when Gaga breaks into the headquarters, a fabulous Lisa Vanderpump gives some serious mob-wife visuals as she struts. Critics have been across the spectrum when it comes to receiving this video. A few have noted the video comes across as a collage of ideas half-strung together. But, here’s the thing – that’s who Lady Gaga is. As an avid Little Monster since 2009, I can say not much about her has changed – or at least, what kind of artist she is hasn’t

changed. Her early work was a beautiful spattering of influences including Grace Jones, David Bowie and techno-raver fashion. Many critics, including Isha Aran, writer for Jezebel. com, were blatant in their lack of knowledge about Gaga and her career. “I have not taken the time or patience to listen to ARTPOP all the way through,” Aran said in her review of the video. Unlike some other artists, knowing about Gaga’s life is part of appreciating her work. And like a fine wine, you probably won’t love it all at first sip. Take a minute. Smell it. Look at the color. Swish it around. Let it marinate in your mouth. And in the end, take it for what it’s worth. “G.U.Y.” is a fun song. The video has some really cool visuals, the storyline is different from anything she’s done and I think the world needs to see more of Lisa Vanderpump playing guitar, quite frankly. daa&

Head coach Mike Carey calls out to his team earlier this season.

No. 2 West Virginia takes on No . 7 LSU in Baton Rouge with trip to Sweet Sixteen hanging in balance by jon fehrens sports writer @dailyathenaeum

Many coaches across the country would categorize what the West Virginia women’s basketball team has done this season as a monumental success, but do not include Mike Carey in that bunch. For Carey, it’s what his team has yet to do that he finds most important. And tonight in Baton Rouge, La., Carey can guide his team to a berth in the third round of the NCAA tournament for the first time in school history. In the Carey era, West Virginia has danced in seven of the last eight years and a school-record fifth consecutive tournament appearance, but the second round has been his kryptonite. “We haven’t done anything in the NCAAs, and that’s been under me,” Carey said. “We’ve got a lot to prove. Our young

ladies, they’ve played extremely well and hard, but we have some goals going forward here.” Advancing into the third round of the Louisville section will be no easy task for the Mountaineers. In order to continue its historic season, West Virginia will have to take down the host and No. 7-seed LSU. The Pete Maravich Center has been good to the Lady Tigers this season. They own an 11-4 record at home, where they took down teams such as Florida and St. Joseph’s. In their most recent action, they easily handled 10-seeded Georgia Tech, 98-78. The Tigers are built on the combination of guard Danielle Ballard and senior center Theresa Plaisance. The 6-foot-5 Plaisance is a National Player of the Year Candidate, who has improved greatly since her sophomore year. After averaging only 4.5 points per game as a sophomore,


Eron Harris gazes at the floor during WVU’s loss to Texas in the Big 12 Tournament.

Eron Harris to transfer Sophomore Eron Harris has requested his release from the West Virginia University basketball program and plans to transfer from the team. Harris was the second-leading scorer on the team, averaging 17.2 points per game. The Indianapolis native also led the team in 3-pointers and 3-point field goal percentage. “I have enjoyed my time at West Virginia University the past two

years, but I want to transfer closer to home,” Harris said. The 6-foot-3 sophomore played in all 33 games this season. He scored 30 points twice and registered at least 20 points 11 times. “We have enjoyed Eron (Harris) and his contributions to Mountaineer basketball,” Huggins said. “Of all people, I certainly know what it is like to be closer to family and friends. That’s why I did it as a student-athlete (and) then as a coach.” Harris is also an AllBig 12 Conference Honorable Mention. — gm

Plaisance led the SEC in scoring her junior year. Against the Yellow Jackets, she recorded a double-double with 21 points and 11 rebounds. LSU’s backcourt runs through Ballard. The sophomore guard was named to the SEC’s All-Freshman and Defensive teams last year. Ballard dropped a career-high 25 points to defeat the Mountaineers in a 2012 matchup. While LSU cruised past its first round matchup, the Mountaineers were exposed by Albany in the second half of their game. After leading by 17 at halftime, the Great Danes were able to cut the lead down to five before West Virginia scored four straight points. The lategame scare caused Carey to criticize his senior leadership late in the season. “We had seniors out there making freshman mistakes,” he said. “Nothing against Albany, but if we play like that, LSU will

beat us. There’s no doubt we’ll play better on Tuesday night.” Senior center Asya Bussie falls into that category after scoring only three points on 1-of-5 shooting. In order to stretch the Tigers’ interior defense, West Virginia will have to improve shooting from the 3-point line. As a team, the Mountaineers shot only 22 percent from behind the arc. Today’s matchup will air on ESPN2 at 9:45 p.m.

women’s basketball

WVU needs 40-minute effort against LSU by amit batra

WVU embraces difficult NCAA tournament The 2-seed West Virginia women’s basketball team will have their work cut out for them in the NCAA tournament. After cruising past Albany 76-61 Sunday afternoon in their opening game of the tournament, despite a second-half surge from the Great Danes, the Mountaineers looked poised in their quest for a strong postseason. Led by guards Christal Caldwell and Bria Holmes, WVU looked aggressive on both sides of the ball. It took advantage of 15 missed free throws from Albany. The Mountaineers’ path to the history books will only get tougher from here on out, however. West Virginia will see 7-seed LSU in the next round. If the Mountaineers can get past the Tigers in Baton Rouge, La., they can see 3-seed Louisville in the Sweet Sixteen. If West Virginia can get past the Cardinals, it could see the 1-seed Tennessee Lady Volunteers in the Elite Eight. While WVU’s schedule may be one of the hardest of all the top seeds in this year’s NCAA tournament, the resiliency of this group has been one worth praising all season. While the task appears difficult, you simply can’t write off West Virginia based on this year’s results. With Sunday’s win over Albany, West Virginia set a program record with its 30th win of the season. The Mountaineers’ success this season is in large part due to the team’s chemistry and the underrated head coaching job of Mike Carey. Under Carey, WVU has become a deep threat in the NCAA tournament. While Sunday’s performance saw a little bit of a scare for Mountaineer fans in the second half, Carey was able to get his players to regroup and focus on finishing the game out. And West Virginia was able to do just that. That is the mark of a mature squad. The Mountaineers will now have their hands full with an LSU squad that nearly scored 100 points against Georgia Tech to advance. It will be another challenge for West Virginia, especially with the Mountaineers having to play in the opponent’s playground, so to speak. All season, I’ve been impressed with the play of the guards. While Caldwell and Holmes have been leaders for West Virginia offensively, along with senior center Asya Bussie, the Mountaineers have used their strong defense to create offense. In all honesty, this whole journey has been a remarkable thing to watch. I’ve been impressed with how aggressive West Virginia has been all season, and I feel like the results which have come along the way are due to this group’s belief in just how sound they are. With what the Mountaineers have accomplished up to this point, it’s safe to say the season has been a success. West Virginia winning a share of the Big 12 Conference regular season title, along with beating the likes of a dominant power in women’s basketball in Baylor, says wonders about how far this team has come. West Virginia believes in its skill set and how it can beat any team in the country on a good day. I’ve been sold on this group for a few weeks now. The journey is not over, however. WVU could have a long way to go before this season is in the past. For now, let’s just enjoy this ride and see where it takes us. After all, this season could be one we’re all talking about for years to come.

sports editor @batra01

For the West Virginia women’s basketball team, Sunday’s 76-61 win over Albany in the opening round of the NCAA tournament was a tale of two halves. “We just stuck it out and came together in huddles and said, ‘Listen, we can’t let this one get away, they’re not going to give up,” said WVU senior guard Christal Caldwell. “So we just had to come together as a team and come out with a victory.” Caldwell led the Mountaineers with a careerhigh 26 points. Sophomore guard Bria Holmes chipped in with 20 points for West Virginia, with 17 of those points coming in the first half alone. While WVU enjoyed a 22-point lead at one point in the game, the Great Danes cut that lead to five in the second half, 56-51. West Virginia regrouped and cruised to the finish line. “I thought in the first

half we moved the ball extremely well, attacked, swung the ball, found the open man and hit shots,” said head coach Mike Carey. “In the second half, we kind of stood around. We didn’t attack anymore, and they started attacking us, and we put them at the foul line.” At the half, the Mountaineers enjoyed a 17-point cushion. Following a 20-2 run and a season-low two turnovers after the first 20 minutes, West Virginia seemed like it would run away from Albany in routine fashion. Against 7-seed LSU tonight, however, Carey said if West Virginia plays a half like it did in the second half against Albany, the Tigers could be too much to overcome. “Nothing against Albany, but if we play like that, LSU will beat us,” he said. “We’re going to have to play for 40 minutes. It’s going to have to be a 40-minute game and play hard for 40 minutes and concentrate and attack for 40 minutes and play de-

fense for 40 minutes. It’s going to be a tough game.” WVU advances to the second round of the NCAA tournament for the sixth time in program history, and the sixth time under Carey. The Mountaineers did what they needed to do in order to get the win over Albany, and not to discredit the Great Danes, but the Mountaineers will need to have a better all-around effort to defeat teams like LSU and potentially 3-seed Louisville in the Sweet Sixteen and 1-seed Tennessee in the Elite Eight. “I always tell the players in all tournament settings we normally don’t play well the first game,” Carey said. “There’s no doubt we’ll play better the next game and play harder for 40 minutes.” West Virginia will now look to advance past the second round and use a complete 40-minute effort to do so. The Mountaineers take on LSU tonight at 9:30 on ESPN.


WVU faces Pitt at Hawley Field Tuesday by connor murray associate sports editor @connorkmurray

More than six weeks after its season opening loss to Louisville, the West Virginia baseball team is set to host its first true home game of the season when it takes on the Pittsburgh Panthers in the Backyard Brawl at Hawley field today at 3 p.m. The Mountaineers come into today’s matchup with a record of 12-8 after they dropped two of three games during the weekend on the road against UNC Wilmington. Today’s game against the Panthers will be West Virginia’s last non-conference game before its first Big 12 series of the year against Baylor this weekend. Coming into the game ranked No. 22 in RPI, the Mountaineers have navigated one of the toughest early season schedules in the country this year. Earlier this season, head coach Randy Mazey said playing against tough competition outside the Big 12 can be challenging, but it’s a necessary part of building a program.

“We have to play against great competition. When we recruit kids and they look at the schedule, that’s what they want to do,” he said. Mazey’s words appeared to be prophetic when West Virginia’s game against instate rival Marshall was canceled earlier this season. He was able to schedule a road game against one of college baseball’s most recognizable programs, the No. 12 North Carolina Tar Heels. The Mountaineers took advantage of the opportunity to announce their legitimacy to the nation and beat the Tar Heels 5-1 on the strength of a complete game from pitcher John Means. “We want to coach against people like that. Our kids want to play against people like that. Our fans want to see teams like that. So hopefully we’re going to year in and year out load the schedule with good competition,” Mazey said. Senior first baseman Ryan McBroom has stepped into a leadership role and is spearheading the Mountaineers’ offensive attack, which he said before the season features a diverse

array of skill sets. “We pretty much have it all. We just have to put it all together on the field,” McBroom said. Three Mountaineers are currently in the top 10 in the Big 12 in batting average. Junior Billy Fleming is No. 2 in the conference with a .413 average. McBroom comes in at No. 5, hitting .372, and junior Bobby Boyd’s .352 average is No. 8 in the conference. Where McBroom separates himself from the competition is with his power. His five home runs are tied for second best in the conference, and he is only one of two players in the league to rank in the top 10 in average and home runs. Coupled with the strong start the Mountaineer pitching staff is off to this year, McBroom said the depth of WVU’s lineup is going to make them a difficult team to match up with all season. “I think we can really do some damage offensively. We’re going to be tough to beat this year with our rotation,” he said.

Devine impresses at WVU Pro Day by joe mitchin sports writer @dailyathenaeum

NFL scouts and media members alike gathered for the annual WVU Pro Day inside the Caperton Indoor Facility Friday. What they found when they got there was something Morgantown hasn’t seen since 2010. Former Mountaineer running back Noel Devine, fresh off a season with the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League (CFL), was back in town working out for a second chance at playing professionally in America. “Coming back has been a blessing for me,” Devine said. “It’s a second opportunity to get in front of scouts and showcase my talent. I feel like I did my best. I put up good numbers and did the best I could.” Devine, now 26 years old, was last seen in a Mountaineer uniform as a senior in 2010 when he rushed for 934 yards and six touchdowns, despite playing most of the season with a foot injury. He missed three games completely and was never healthy enough to give his best effort at a pro career. Altogether, the Fort My-

ers, Fla., native rushed for more than 4,500 yards and 29 rushing touchdowns in his Mountaineer career, including a monster junior campaign in 2009 that saw Devine rush for over 1,500 yards and 14 total touchdowns. Devine has bounced around from league to league since then, playing the last two seasons in Canada. Prior to that, he briefly played in the now defunct United Football League (UFL) for the Omaha Nighthawks in 2011. This past season, Devine played in six games for Montreal, rushing for 78 yards on 17 attempts. He also caught five passes and returned kick and punt returns before hurting his ankle, causing him to miss the rest of the season. The running back believes he has reaped the benefits of continuing to play football and is constantly developing new skills on the field. “I have different aspects in my game now,” Devine said. “I believe my game has improved thanks to the (Canadian Football League) to go over there and play.” Devine largely outperformed his measurables at the 2011 NFL Combine that resulted in him being

left undrafted. He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.31 seconds Friday, compared to his 4.45 performance at the NFL Combine. Devine also had a longer broad job (10’6 compared to 10’1 in 2011) and more reps on his bench press (25 compared to 24 in 2011). Personal issues have haunted Devine throughout his professional and personal life. He received his shot at the NFL in the summer after the 2011 NFL Draft when the Philadelphia Eagles signed him for that season’s training camp. Devine was released four days later after leaving the team during a workout session. However, Devine is looking for another chance at the NFL. He arrived in Morgantown Friday hopeful and determined and will continue to look forward to any additional workout in the future. “This go-around is better for me mentally and physically,” Devine said. “I didn’t have any injuries, and I trained hard. Hard work pays off.” No one knows where Devine will go next, but after an eye-opening Pro Day, NFL scouts were left clamoring, if nothing else.
