Students at West Virginia University are supporting childhood cancer research in more ways than simply donating money – they are shaving their heads to help find a cure. St. Baldrick’s Foundation raises money for childhood cancer research and gives grants to hospitals to fund research to find a cure. Participants raised $11,965 for St. Baldrick’s. Abigail Davis a WVU junior secondary education student, and Kali Kumor, a junior criminology student, are co-chairs of the first St. Baldrick’s event at WVU. “Some people (shaved) their heads today for childhood cancer, and all the money that we (raised) will be going to St. Baldrick’s,” Kumor said. Davis worked with her high school for St. Baldrick’s and said she wanted to bring the event to the University, so she contacted Alpha Phi Omega. “Alpha Phi Omega jumped at the opportunity. It is all community-based, so we decided to give it a try,” Kumor said. Rachael Parsley, a freshman nursing student, was one of the first two girls to have her head shaved at the event. After her hair was gone, she said she felt empowered knowing she was helping to find a cure.

Sheetz announced Wednesday it will be opening a new location in Sunnyside’s University Place. The 15,000 square-foot University Avenue location will feature a full-size grocery store and serve Sheetz’s signature MTO items. Fuel will not be available at this location. Louie Sheetz, Sheetz Board of Directors member, said the University Place location will be the first of its kind. “It is a new concept for us,” he said. “This is great evidence of a pioneering spirit in Sheetz ... This is the first Sheetz to open without gasoline.” Sheetz said the new location would be triple the size of a typical location and will provide indoor and outdoor seating for more than 100 patrons. “This will be the first we develop with a full-line grocery,” he said. “When we open those doors, we’re never going to lock those doors. We don’t care what you want to eat or when you want to eat, we’ll have it for you whenever you want it.” While WVU will be home to the first new type of the establishment, Sheetz said the company is looking to expand to other college town locations, such as University of Pittsburgh and the Pennsylvania State University. The new Sheetz location will be open to the public,

The West Virginia University Student Government Association adopted a resolution in support of the studentrun organization FirstHand Coffee during its Wednesday night meeting. The resolution, which passed unanimously, states that SGA “endorses the full adoption of FirstHand coffee at all campus dining locations.” Afsheen Misaghi, an SGA Board of Governors member, said the resolution comes at a time when the University is considering the renewal of existing contracts with coffee companies. “Right now we’re looking at contracts with coffee companies that are going to start expiring within the next year,” Misaghi said. “FirstHand Coffee is trying to take over these contracts and spread itself around campus by getting WVU to buy from them and serve their coffee around the University.” FirstHand Coffee orders its supply from a Nicaraguan farming co-op and is currently sold on campus at Eliza’s Cafe in the Downtown Library and at the Boreman Bistro. Misaghi said FirstHand Coffee is a great choice for WVU because it was created and is maintained by WVU students and alumni. “FirstHand Coffee is a free-trade, nonprofit, WVU student-run organization that serves some of the finest

Catwalk for charity: PRSSA hosts annual benefit fashion show by alexis randolph staff writer @dailyathenaeum
The West Virginia University Public Relations Student Society of America and the WVU Fashion Business Association hosted its fifth annual Boys & Girls Club Fashion Show Wednesday evening in the Mountainlair Ballrooms. The show featured current WVU student designers as well as alumni designers. Fashion from local Morgantown boutiques such as Park & Madison, Coni & Franc and Altered Ego were featured in the show. Lexie Bramer, an integrated marketing communications graduate student and co-director of the show, said she hopes people continue to support the cause. “It is such a great cause, and it
gets better and better every year,” Bramer said. Bramer has participated as a model in previous shows but coordinated the models and designers for the show this year. “I was the liaison between us and the boutiques organizing the models and the hair and makeup,” Bramer said. “Just making sure everything is ready back there.” Proceeds from ticket sales and raffle tickets went to the Mountaineer Boys & Girls Club. Raffle donations were provided by s restaurants and businesses from the Morgantown area. Ashley Jolliff, WVU alumnus and owner and designer of The Ashley Cole Shop, was among the designers showing off pieces from her spring and summer lines. “I have a good variety here tonight. I’m just excited to see all of
the pieces and see what everyone has for spring,” Jolliff said. Brittany Crossetti, a senior public relations student and co-director of the show, said the event has been a year in the making. “It is just kind of learning from each year it happens and finding the ways to make it better,” Crossetti said. “Last year’s was definitely tough to beat because of how much they raised for the Boys & Girls Club. We did a lot of what we did last year, but we tweaked it and made it our own.” Crossetti said directing has been a lot of fun. “My favorite part of being a director was getting to go to the Boys & Girls club,” she said. “Just hearing how grateful they ALL PHOTOS BY Shannon McKenna/THE DAILY ATHENAEUM were for all of our help, you Models showcased three different design major’s fashion lines, including senior Mary Pietranton, Gretta Hemplemann and Brittany Sleight.

WVU alumna to host FOX reality show By Caroline Peters & WESTLEY THOMPSON DA STAFF @DailyAthenaeum
West Virginia University mechanical aerospace engineering graduate Emily Calandrelli proved she was worthy of great things during her stay in Morgantown. However, Calandrelli might have just received her biggest break into success yet. The former Ms. Mountaineer has been invited to host “Xploration Nation: Outerspace,” a four-part
miniseries premiering this fall on Fox. The series will focus on STEM subjects – science, technology, engineering and math. “Xploration Nation” is aimed toward teenagers between the ages of 13 and 16. The hope is that by showing them the wonders of science and technology, in a cool and entertaining way, less young people will be driven away from these subject areas. Calandrelli said she hopes to make STEM topics interesting to viewers, including the people who
haven’t taken an interest in math or science. “Sometimes we think of science and engineering as these complicated, unreachable concepts that are reserved for people like the characters on ‘The Big Bang Theory,’” Calandrelli said. “In reality, there are many types of scientists and engineers, and the types of STEM careers cover an entire spectrum.” Calandrelli said she hopes she will be able to serve as a role model for kids who watch the show. She wants to change the
stereotypes that are associated with the STEM fields. “My personal goal is to be able to reach out to the kid in class who perhaps doesn’t identify with the ‘nerd’ stereotype, or doesn’t consider him or herself as one of the ‘smart kids.’ I want to show them what STEM has to offer them,” Calandrelli said. “If the story is told creatively, everyone can find something they like in math and science.” Calandrelli was contacted by producer Steve Rotfeld after he saw her
in a few promotional YouTube videos produced for the College of Engineering and Mineral Resources while she was still a WVU student. Calandrelli is also a producer for the show and said she looks forward to directing and choosing a lot of the content and filming locations. From space tourism to Mars, Calandrelli said she wants to cover all aspects of science on the show. “The space industry is incredibly diverse today, and we want to cover the
most exciting aspects of it. Our show will dive into the intriguing world of space tourism, space hotels, one-way trips to Mars, space elevators and asteroid mining,” Calandrelli said. “We’ll also be showing viewers what it’s like to train like an astronaut and what it would be like to live on Mars.” For information about Xploration Nation: Outerspace, visit http://EmilyCalandrelli.com or follow @ EmCalSpaceGal on Twitter. email@example.com
General to admit guilt on 3 counts; denies assault RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — A U.S. Army general accused of sexually assaulting a junior officer will admit guilt on three lesser charges but maintains his innocence on allegations that he forced her to perform oral sex, his lawyer said Wednesday night. Brig. Gen. Jeffrey A. Sinclair is set to enter the plea Thursday morning before opening statements are scheduled for his court martial at Fort Bragg. The primary accuser in the case
is a female captain who claims Sinclair twice ended arguments about their relationship by unzipping his pants and forcing her head into his lap. The woman says her commander threatened to kill her family if she told anyone about their threeyear affair, which continued after the alleged assaults. Sinclair’s lawyer Richard Scheff said the general will plead guilty to having improper relationships with two other female Army of-
ficers and to committing adultery with his mistress, which is a crime in the military. He will also admit violating orders by possessing pornography in Afghanistan and to conduct unbecoming of an officer and a gentleman. Sinclair, the former deputy commander of the 82nd Airborne, faces life in prison if convicted of the remaining sexual assault charges. Scheff said in an interview that his client is tak-
ing responsibility for his actions, but also strengthening his legal position headed into trial. The general had previously entered pleas of not guilty to all eight charges. By admitting guilt on the three charges for which there is the strongest evidence, the married father of two narrows the focus of the upcoming trial to charges that rely heavily on the testimony and credibility of his former mistress. “The government now
has a big problem,” Scheff said in an email. “It took pathetically weak assault charges and put a fancy wrapper around them. We just tore the wrapper off. The prosecution team no longer gets to distract us with salacious details about acts that aren’t even criminal in the civilian world. All they’re left with is a crime that never happened, a witness who committed perjury, and a pile of text messages and journal entries that disprove their claim.”
The case against Sinclair, believed to be the most senior member of the U.S. military ever to face trial on sexual assault charges, comes as the Pentagon grapples with a troubling string of revelations involving rape and sexual misconduct within the ranks. Influential members of Congress are also pushing to remove decisions about the prosecution of sex crimes from the military chain of command.
BOG member Spenser Wempe outlined and summarized the many changes in the works. “There are a lot of vague areas as (the code) currently stands, and additionally there are lots of things that are out of date,” Wempe said. “A lot of the changes aren’t sweeping but rather are a matter of making the code itself more understandable, concise and enforceable.” Wempe said the changes, which would go into effect for next year’s elections, are a product of lessons learned during the past few years. Wempe said a lot of work on the elections code will be done during spring break and said she welcomes stu-
dent input. “My information is up on the SGA website, and I encourage students to contact me so I can incorporate their opinions,” Wempe said. The BOG approved $9,360 in grant money to 10 student organizations. The amount spent brings the total amount left in the student organizations grant account to less than $10,000. Chief Financial Officer Dillan Knox said there are still more than 20 student organization grants pending approval. Knox, who has repeatedly and publicly pleaded with BOG members to come to Bureau of Finances meetings, said he hopes gover-
nors in the future will take a more engaged role in SGA finances. “I believe it’s very difficult to appropriate student organizations’ money equally,” Knox said. “All of (the grants) have a lot of variables, a lot of different needs, and the bureau is an entity designed to help simplify things. “If you listen and actively participate in (the bureau’s) debates, you will become well informed and able to make these decisions better. That’s what I hope to see from the board,” Knox said. SGA meets every Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. in Hatfields B.

Washington issues first legal pot business
Sean Green, third from right, is congratulated by Washington State Liquor Board member Chris Marr, as they stand with others for a group photo after Green was presented his his new Washington state legal marijuana license Wednesday, in Olympia, Wash. Green, a medical marijuana dispensary operator from Spokane, was issued the producer-processor license under the state’s recreational pot law at the Liquor Control Board meeting.
OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — Washington state issued its first legal-marijuana business license Wednesday, launching a new phase in the state’s ambitious effort to regulate a market that has been illegal for more than 75 years. Sean Green, who has operated medical marijuana dispensaries in Spokane and the Seattle suburb of Shoreline, proclaimed the document “beautiful” as it was handed to him at a state Liquor Control Board meeting in Olympia. The license will allow him to grow 21,000 square feet of cannabis at his Spokane facility – the first pot that will be grown for sale under the highly taxed system approved by voters in 2012. The possession of marijuana became legal for adults over 21 soon after the vote, but it’s still illegal to grow or sell it for recreational use until pot shops open in the state later this year. Green plans to start by raising marijuana starter plants to sell to other growers, and later expand to growing buds for retail pot shops. “Cannabis prohibition is over,” Green declared to applause from a room packed with his supporters. “I’m coming home with jobs, Spokane.”
Sales began Jan. 1 in Colorado, the only other state to legalize the recreational use of marijuana. But Colorado already had a regulated medical marijuana system and simply began by allowing medical dispensaries to sell recreational pot. Washington had no regulated medical system. The Liquor Control Board said Green got the first license because he was the first applicant to complete the process. The board also received more than 2,200 retail applications, and is expected to hold lotteries in at least some areas before allowing 334 pot shops statewide. Washington’s first pot stores are expected to open in June or July. Seattle attorney Alison Holcomb, who led the state’s legalization campaign, called it exciting. “It’s easy to talk about what marijuana legalization might look like,” she said. “It’s a much different thing to see it roll out.” Green is chief executive of Spokane’s Kouchlock Productions, a company named for the phenomenon of being too stoned to get off the couch. The board’s three members credited the hard work he did to meet the requirements to obtain a license, including passing
criminal and financial background checks, developing a board-approved business plan and finding a location that wasn’t too close to schools or daycares. “We’re proud of you,” board chairwoman Sharon Foster said. “We now know there are folks out there who follow the rules and are willing to be participants of this brave new venture in Washington state.” But even the issuance of the first license underscored the hurdles the industry continues to face. Pot remains illegal under federal law, and despite recent guidance from the U.S. Treasury and Justice departments, banks continue to be wary of working with marijuana businesses. Green said he has lost bank accounts six times because of his connection to the pot industry, most recently last week. He already found another one but isn’t sure how long he’ll be able to keep it. Green said he got involved in the industry after his decade-long career as an independent real-estate appraiser dried up. He took $10,000 and started Pacific Northwest Medical in Shoreline in 2011, later expanding to Spokane. He plans to begin by growing 1,200 square feet
of starter plants to provide to other growers as they become licensed. He said he plans expand to growing marijuana buds for retail, with 30 to 50 employees. For now, he plans to also continue running his medical operations, though the Legislature is considering whether to bring medical marijuana into the same system as recreational pot. Green also said he plans to make cannabis-infused candies, as well as what he described as a “super joint,” an ultra-strong marijuana cigarette made with cannabis oil and flowers. Derek Franklin, president of the Washington Association for Substance Abuse and Violence Prevention, said he found it troubling that Green was getting the first license, with the message sent by the “Kouchlock” name as well as the idea of the “super joint.” “There doesn’t seem to be much attention being paid to public health and public safety,” he said. Though the board praised Green for following the rules, some questions remained about his medical marijuana business. As first discovered by The Seattle Times, two of Pacific Northwest Medical’s former employees filed complaints

with the state Department of Labor and Industries alleging it had withheld their wages. The wages, totaling more than $1,600, were later paid, records show. One of the complainants also alleged Green had sexually harassed another employee. Department spokesman Matthew Erlich confirmed Labor and Industries received the two complaints. He said the agency would have referred the complainant who alleged sexual harassment to the state Human Rights Commission.
The commission said it never received any sexual harassment complaint concerning Green or his company. Green said twice at a news conference he was unaware of the complaints. But Erlich later contradicted that, saying in an email to The Associated Press that the department dealt directly with Green to get the complaints resolved. The liquor board’s director said staff would not have considered the civil complaints in deciding whether to give Green a license.

University of California Los Angeles’ chief executive officer, and Chancellor, Gene Block, left, presents a medal to former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton after addressing students at the University of California Los Angeles, UCLA campus on the subject of leadership in Los Angeles Wednesday. LOS ANGELES (AP) — Russian President Vladimir Putin is a tough but thin-skinned leader who is squandering his country’s potential, former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Wednesday, a day after she likened his actions on the Crimean peninsula of Ukraine to those of Adolf Hitler in the 1930s. Clinton, a potential 2016 presidential contender, warned during her a speech at the University of California, Los Angeles, that “all parties should avoid steps that could be misinterpreted or lead to miscalculation at this delicate time.” Putin has said he was protecting ethnic Russians by moving troops into Crimea. Clinton said Tuesday at a closed fundraising luncheon in Long Beach that Putin’s actions are similar what happened in the Nazi
era in Czechoslovakia and Romania. “Now if this sounds familiar, it’s what Hitler did back in the ‘30s,” Clinton said, according to the Press-Telegram of Long Beach. “Hitler kept saying, ‘They’re not being treated right. I must go and protect my people.’ And that’s what’s gotten everybody so nervous.” Responding to a question submitted at the UCLA talk, Clinton said she was not making a comparison although Russia’s actions were “reminiscent” of claims Germany made in the 1930s, when the Nazis said they needed to protect German minorities in Poland and elsewhere in Europe. “The claims by President Putin and other Russians that they had to go into Crimea and maybe further into eastern Ukraine because they had to protect the Russian minor-
ities, that is reminiscent of claims that were made back in the 1930s when Germany under the Nazis kept talking about how they had to protect German minorities in Poland and Czechoslovakia and elsewhere throughout Europe,” she said. “I just want everybody to have a little historic perspective. I am not making a comparison, certainly. But I am recommending that we perhaps can learn from this tactic that has been used before,” she said. Clinton said Putin is trying to “re-Sovietize” the periphery of Russia but is actually squandering the potential of his nation and “threatening instability and even the peace of Europe.” In recent days, some Republicans, including Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., have criticized the Obama admin-
istration’s policy in Ukraine. Clinton echoed President Barack Obama’s assessment that Russia’s intervention was a violation of international law, and she said she supported the administration’s call for Russia “to refrain from the threat or use of force.” Kathryn Stoner, a Russia expert at Stanford University’s Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies, said she considered Clinton’s comparison between Putin and the tactics of Nazi-era Germany “a bit of a stretch,” in part because Putin “doesn’t look like he is intent on spreading across the Ukraine and permanently occupying this area.” In a delicate diplomatic situation “I don’t think it’s helpful on either side to say things like this, but in these crises it happens,” Stoner added.

OPINION The dangers of ‘thinspiration’ 4
Thursday March 6, 2014
HANNAH CHENOWETH COLUMNIST
Blogs and websites devoted to weight loss are nothing new. It seems to if they’ve almost taken over social media with all the Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest accounts solely dedicated to cute workout clothes, healthy recipes and inspiring quotes. That’s all well and good if it pushes you to achieve your goals – even if sometimes it seems like a fitness overload. However, there is a fine line between fitness and the disturbing trend of taking “thinspiration” to extreme levels. Although pro-ana (proanorexia) websites first appeared in the late ’90s there was a 470 percent increase from 2006 to 2007. In the past seven years, that number has continued to dangerously spike. When searching “thinspiration” on Google, one comes across many websites with the word “proana” attached. Pro-ana refers to the promotion of the eating disorder anorexia nervosa. There’s also the term “promia,” which is the bulimia version, although it is used less often. Pro-ana is a social movement dedicated to encouraging an anorexic lifestyle – they push the belief the disease is a lifestyle choice and not a mental illness. These websites are covered with photos of emaciated women with protruding ribs and hip bones, with quotes like “Once on the

lips, forever on the hips” and “Every time you say no thank you to food, you say yes please to being skinny.” There are even encouraging songs and poetry about starvation, painting it as a lifestyle to admire. Red bracelets are featured on many personal websites – these bracelets serve as a tangible yet discreet reminder to not eat and unify anorexics. There are lists of guidelines that should horrify young girls, but instead are causing them to actually join the “pro-ana” life. It starts out by explaining “Ana” (anorexia personified) must become the center of life, and that friends will only get in the way of those goals and should be avoided – isolating the ones who care already. The “rules” only get more insane and controlling. There is advice on snapping a rubber band against your wrist at the first pang of hunger and to only snack on celery if “you are really hungry.” There were at least hundred quotes, all of which I found highly disturbing, including “Hunger hurts, but starving works,” “Thinner is the winner,” and “It’s not deprivation, its liberation.” These websites worship models such as Kate Moss, who famously said in a 2009 interview, “Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels.” Websites like these are dangerous to not only girls who suffer from eating disorders but to all t young girls who are vulnerable to body image issues already in our thin-obsessed society. These forums make all “pro-ana” supporters feel
like family and can convince them they don’t have a problem. They view mainstream society as condemning, like they just don’t understand. Thankfully, many social networking sites have taken measures to shut down pro-ana websites. Facebook tries to delete the sites on the basis they “promote self-harm,” which breaks the terms of service. LiveJournal, on the other hand, made a disturbing quote about why they would not shut down proana blogs, claiming that allowing them to exist has benefits, such as making those suffering from the disease feel less alone and providing reassurance. In reality, it just reassures them starving themselves is okay – the last thing someone suffering from an eating disorder needs to hear. These websites exist to promote delusion, and when a big group of people is saying starving yourself is okay, it makes it seem like it is okay. It’s scary that young people have access to websites such as these at their fingertips, especially knowing how impressionable teenagers are. Everyone needs to make sure their online sources of motivation are positive and healthy. If the words “pro-ana” are mentioned, you automatically know it is not encouraging the lifestyle you are looking for. A healthy weight and fit lifestyle are certainly good goals but should never be taken to the measures proana pushes for. email@example.com
‘Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels,” model Kate Moss famously said. Ideas like this – known as ‘thinspiration’ promote a dangerous and unhealthy lifestyle.

Choices: thinking in binary JAKE JARVIS A&E WRITER
Each day we are confronted with an infinite amount of choices. Should I skip my social psychology class? Should I vote Launch Party or Trusted Ticket? Is that person ugly? Depending on who you ask and the context in which you ask these questions, you will get inconsistent answers. Some say yes or no, some respond with a maybe and some even require further parameters. To try to more easily make quick decisions about our world, humanity has locked herself into a suspended state of binaryseeking ignorance.
In essence, we condense infinite possibilities to only two possibilities, so we may better understand. Take a look at morality. Before taking an action, we often ask the fundamental question, “Is this right or wrong?” In 1958, psychologist Lawrence Kohlberg outlined the path of moral development that humans take from infancy to maturity. In each stage, we decide what is “right” based on a particular context. Our deciding factor could be a reward from authority or the legal ramifications that follow the action. The entire theory hangs on the premise our cognitions are formed solely as either right or wrong. It’s as if we are unable to see the good and bad in each scenario.
Consider assisted suicide. It is impossible to ignore the murky gray water of morals here. Yet, if the American public were asked to vote on the legality of assisted suicide, we would have to side one way or the other. Right or wrong. Good or bad. Yes or no. From the vote we would get a measure of the distribution of yes and no answers, but we would not get a measure of the cognitions behind those decisions. Our moral decisions are left in the dark. This binary is so embedded in our culture, we sometimes hardly recognize it. When we are born, we are assigned the sex male or female, based on the presence or absence of a penis.
From there, we are encoded with gender display rules that give us a framework for expressing our assigned identity. The truth is, we are not a species of solely male and female. Not only do our anatomies exist in a variety, our gender identities do too. Americans should be aware of the gender spectrum that says male and female identities exist fluidly, not statically. Thinking in a binary way is one of humanity’s greatest flaws. Looking at countless examples of binary decisions moves me to believe this is human nature. By fueling the binaries of life we are limiting the beautifully diverse narratives of humanity. The binary makes the scale always tip one way or another – it makes mascu-
We’re less than 24 hours away from spring break and the West Virginia University community is collectively counting down the remaining minutes until freedom. Most students will be traveling – either home or on vacation – and it’s important to take the time to be safe and prepared during the hiatus. While traveling, keep these simple tips in mind, and you’ll be sure to have a relaxing and restful vacation. Preparing your apartment/dorm before leaving: –Make sure you’ve taken out the trash, emptied the fridge and locked all windows and doors. –Set your thermostat at a moderate temperature to ensure pipes don’t burst in case of freezing weather. –Make sure to take home valuable items that
could attract thieves. When driving: –Buckle up and observe speed limits. –On long trips, take turns driving so the driver doesn’t become lethargic. –Bring sufficient money for gas, food and unexpected emergencies. In the sun and in the water: –The sun maximizes the effects of alcohol and intensifies the symptoms of a hangover. –Use sunscreen of at least SPF 15, and be sure to reapply as needed. –Never swim in unattended areas or areas marked off limits. Universit y housing closes Friday at 7 p.m. and will reopen March 16 at noon. Be safe, be smart, and always behave like a Mountaineer.
linity and femininity an absolute – it puts “us” against “them.” So, what do we do? Do we purposefully abstain from making a decision altogether in hopes of fighting the machine? Absolutely not. If we abstain, we dilute the results to only represent the individuals veiled by its existence. Instead, be conscious of your right to choose something other than black or white – the gray water is a perfectly acceptable place. And be vocal about why you chose what you chose. It is fine to not subscribe to the entire belief of one political party, one gender or one religion. In fact, realize your right to not choose at all. At least for the time being. This is the time that
many of us create our future selves. We make decisions and discoveries that we will generally commit to for the rest of our lives. So instead of circling “yes” or “no” from the societal questionnaire, choose to answer the free response.

HOROSCOPE BY JACQUELINE BIGAR BORN TODAY This year detaching from difficult situations in order to find a resolution becomes an art. You often see the problem, but the challenge remains to find the right path that will make the most parties happy. Go to the gym, relax and learn to let go of tension. If you are single, you could meet someone very intriguing. A relationship could develop, and the caring will be mutual and deep. If you are attached, you structure your lives very differently in one area. Be wise. Accept your sweetie rather than try to change him or her. When the two of you are more compassionate, you really enjoy each other. ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) HHH You could be discouraged by some-
one else’s resentment of you. Your frustration could come to the surface. Consider how to express your feelings without judging the other party. Postpone a friendly chat until tomorrow, if possible. Tonight: Nap, then decide. TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) HHHH You’ll dominate to an unusual extent, partially because someone refuses to discuss the issue at hand. Communication easily could get messed up and cause a misunderstanding. Make your choices your own. Let others know where you are coming from. Tonight: Out and about. GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) HHH Pretend that you are not in the room. Just listen and take in information. The results will be far better for you, as well as for others. Keep your opinions to yourself, as they could change
rapidly in the next few days. Tonight: Go out and join friends. Be yourself. CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) HHHH You naturally will shine in a meeting. On some level, you’ll like what you hear or see, even if a disagreement dominates the moment. You might want to see how you can move past this problem – perhaps not today, but in the near future. Tonight: Kick back and relax. LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) HHHH You could be in the midst of some tension that you would like to forget about. Consider eliminating this pressure, and try to resolve the problem soon. Use the late afternoon for meetings and other interpersonal matters. Tonight: Get into weekend mode early. VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) HHH If no one is talking or one party is
closed down, resolving a misunderstanding could be close to impossible. If you are the party who is closed down, it would better to talk. If it’s the other person, keep reaching out. Tonight: Join favorite people at a favorite place. LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) HHHH You might want to come to an understanding with a loved one before everyone has gotten too involved with a particular issue. Refuse to get stuck. A special friend will try to lighten your mood. Before you know it, you could be laughing. Tonight: Try something totally new. SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) HHH Your moods could have a bigger impact than you might realize. Be more forthright if you want a problem resolved. You could be vested in this present mental stance as well. Let a
partner air out his or her ideas without becoming judgmental. Tonight: Say “yes” to someone’s whims. SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21) HHH Go with the moment, and know what you desire. You might have kept a lot of your thoughts to yourself, despite your gregarious personality. Others could be stunned by how sensitive you can be. Stay on top of calls and emails. Tonight: Toss yourself into a fun scene. CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19) HHH Upon hearing certain conversations, your mind could jump to better ideas and new ways of handling a personal matter. Follow through on these thoughts more often. Do not feed into a communication issue. Stay open. Tonight: Run some errands on the way home.
AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) HHH You might opt to stay close to home. You could find others in a strange mood, which will make it difficult to deal with them. A conversation with someone at a distance might make you feel uneasy. Try not to let this get to you. Tonight: Let your spontaneity out. PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) HH Take an overview. Conversations will be about the story, not the real issues below the surface. A close associate, friend or loved one could be more than difficult. At present, he or she might seem more fiery than you have witnessed in a while. Tonight: Head home early.

BY NICK WESDOCK A&E WRITER @DAILYATHENAEUM
Every weekend, West Virginia University student Corey Bierer and six of his friends make the three-anda-half-hour drive to State College, Pa., where they come together with students from schools all across the region to work toward a common goal. Bierer, a 21-year-old mechanical engineering student from Morgantown, is a member of the Penn State Indoor Drumline, an ensemble of drums, cymbals and auxil-
iary percussion instruments, which include chimes, tambourines, synthesizers and keyboards. “I play bass – more specifically bass one,” Bierer said. “With drums in general, I kind of fell into it when I was about 11 (years old). With Penn State Indoor, I had often watched videos of groups performing in the WGI, which is the main circuit we perform in, and I knew I wanted to be a part of one of those groups.” WGI, or Winter Guard International, is the world’s premier organization for indoor color guard and percus-

We also have our last competition in Dayton, Ohio.” Ryan Otroba, Foster Tucker, Chaz Kelley, Tim Blair, Mitchell Ibarra and Steve Marris are other WVU students participating with the indoor drumline at Penn State. All of these stu-
dents are also members of the drumline in “The Pride of West Virginia,” the Mountaineer Marching Band, although the two are completely separate. “We mainly practice at Penn State University, as the indoor drumline is affiliated with the school as a club,” Bierer said. “They allow us to use their band facility. We practice every weekend from Friday night at 8 p.m. until Sunday at 4 p.m.” Because Penn State is one of the only schools in the area that participates in WGI, students come from all around to be a part of the drumline.
“We are there as our own group, and we are friends outside of this activity, as well,” Bierer said. “We all get along. It’s filled with people from at least five different schools that come together every weekend for a common goal. The worst thing we ever do is tease the kid from Pitt.” Director Brendan Fullam leads the group. He has been with the organization for much of the group’s 14-year existence and has always looked out for its well-being.

“I never dress up, but (on) the days I don’t work, I have the chance to,” said Logan Snider, a visual journalism student.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — A judge approved a substantial cut in the amount of child support that Beyonce Knowles’ father must pay because his income dropped after his superstar daughter fired him as her manager. A ruling obtained by The Associated Press shows that a Los Angeles Superior Court judge cut the amount Mathew Knowles must pay to actress Alexsandra Wright from $12,000 a month to roughly $2,500 a month. The payments are for a son Knowles fathered with Wright while he was still married to Beyonce’s mother. Judge Scott Gordon’s order is retroactive to February 2013. Although the singer’s name is not mentioned in Monday’s ruling, it notes that her father’s income has substantially fallen since she fired him in 2011. Mathew Knowles sought a reduction in his child support payments, and a hearing was held earlier this year. Gordon agreed with Knowles’ attorneys that his income had changed, but ordered him to pay $15,000 for Wright’s legal fees. Beyonce’s mother filed for divorce in December 2009, about a month after Mathew Knowles was mentioned in Wright’s paternity case. At the time, the pair had been married for nearly 30 years. Wright appeared in the 2001 film “Baby Boy” and has had a few bit television parts.

‘Hang w/’ mobile app connects celebrities with fans via live-streaming chat BY CARLY SMITH A&E WRITER @DAILYATHENAEUM
The new mobile app “Hang w/” is taking other social media vehicles by storm. The app transforms your cell phone or tablet into a live broadcasting social media tool, allowing users to “hang with” celebrities and each other via livestreaming video and chat, creating broadcasts that link straight to the app and also to your Facebook wall. “Hang w/” was created mainly to help celebrities and other users with large followings to build interactive social media relationships with their friends or fans. With “Hang w/,” users can follow celebrities or other people who interest them, and notified when that person broadcasts live. “It connects thousands of people simultaneously by allowing anyone on the platform to broadcast live,” said Hang With Inc. co-founder and CEO Andrew Maltin. “It’s a hard
concept to understand until you use it, but once you do, you’ll realize that there are no time zones. Some people are eating breakfast in the morning, some are out partying at midnight, some are in class at 2 in the afternoon. “But it’s all happening right now, and I can be in all of those places at the same time, chatting with them, asking about their day, listening to their music and just being with them.” The average user can upload dozens or even hundreds of broadcasts every day. Users can share every aspect of their lives with others, and many users comment on and view the daily lives of others. “Hang w/” was developed by MEDL Mobile Inc. to create a more powerful social media platform for celebrities to utilize. Fan engagement has become a popular topic among Hollywood executives and other social media companies who are seeking interactive engagement between celebrities and fans.
The “Hang w/” platform has appealed to more than 100 celebrities, including 50 Cent, Ali Landry, Cheech and Chong, Kaskade, Larry the Cable Guy, Lucy Hale, Terrell Owens and Timbaland. “ There’s something amazing about being ‘with’ your favorite celeb while they are broadcasting, being able to chat and share in the experience as it happens,” Maltin said. The “Hang w/” app prides itself on not being fabricated or ran by a social media team. Real celebrities are interacting with fans, and this is something we know is real because the user can see it live. Through Facebook or Twitter, who knows if it’s actually the celebrity interacting with you? “We developed ‘Hang w/’ to create a more powerful form of social media – one that can’t be faked or fabricated,” Maltin said. “We wanted to enable people to literally be ‘with’ each other, all around the planet. We believe that life
is better when we are with each other live.” The “Hang w/” app has been gaining popularity and recently passed the one million download mark. Statistics were released last week showing “Hang w/” engages fans up to 250 times more than leading social media platforms like Facebook or Twitter. The amount of users who tune in to a celebrity’s broadcast were compared to the followers that like, favorite, retweet, comment and share content of the same celebrities on other social media platforms. Many new updates and projects are coming from Andrew Maltin and the “Hang w/” app, including a concert sponsored by South by Southwest with rapper 50 Cent headlining March 11, live-broadcasted by the “Hang w/” app, connecting celebrities with fans through a livestream and simultaneous chat. Fans will get an intimate look backstage with 50 Cent, as well as exclu-
‘Hang w/’ allows users to chat with celebrities such as Pharrell and 50 Cent. sive access to his concert and new material. Group broadcasting, private messaging, new channels and more celebrities are coming soon to the mobile app, which will only increase its popularity. Maltin and his team are working to help users find
things that interest them to better the app. “Hang w/” is available for download for iOS and Android mobile phones and tablets. For more information, visit http://hangwith.com. firstname.lastname@example.org
‘An Afternoon of Greek Scenes’ to ‘Anchorman 2’ re-released with R-rating, display student work, commitment includes more content BY JAKE JARVIS A&E WRITER @dailyathenaeum
The West Virginia University School of Theatre & Dance senior acting students in the studio program are presenting “An Afternoon of Greek Scenes” Friday at 2 p.m. This is no special occasion, as there are periodic performance days for the select group of actors to display their scenes. To pursue a BFA in acting at WVU, a student must audition for and be accepted into the rigorous two-year program at the end of their sophomore year. In those two years, actors focus exclusively on honing their talents. Friday, they will be presenting three selections from “Madea” by Euripides, “Hecuba” by Euripides and “Burial at Thebes” by Sophocles. Representing the senior class is Hannah Redmond, Nora Perone, Adam Messenger, Benjamin Roberts, Samantha Voit, Cody Wilson, Taylor Horst, Sara Gianola, Joshua Smith, Megan Schreiber and Aubrey Rice. One standout performer to keep an eye on is Cody Wilson, playing Agamem-
non in “Madea.” If you passed him on the street, you probably wouldn’t recognize him, but if you’ve seen a production recently, you’ve probably been dazzled by his performance. In all of his college performances, his face has been obstructed. Whether blocked by a mask or caked in facial prosthetics to give the appearance of old age, the audience never got a glimpse of him. You’ll probably remember him for his heartwrenching performance in “Firs” as the eighty-sevenyear-old servant to the Ranevsky family. For Wilson, the most interesting part of working on this project has been seeing parallels of human expression of identity through the lenses of fictional characters. “The thing I would say is the most intriguing thing is that these scenes are written so epically,” Wilson said. “But, at each of the character’s cores, there is a true human quality.” So, the characters you will see should seem larger than life but still identifiable. Often we see characters on film or on stage that seem impossible to re-
late to. “They are just people, but they live under the extremist of circumstances,” Wilson said. “It’s a daunting task to embrace the scene and live within their world, but it’s a great challenge for us actors to push our skills to the limits because of how extreme the scenes are.” And pushing is just what they are doing. The WVU School of Theatre & Dance has been known to train the performers by pushing them to new horizons they have never seen before. So, for the theater-lovers and the literature-fanatics, this afternoon should not be missed. “It is nice to look at these Greek scenes, which were written so long ago, and see how they can still relate to things which are happening now,” said Adam Messenger, a theater student. The show takes place in the Vivian Davis Michael Laboratory Theatre in the basement of the Creative Arts Center. Admission is free but seating is extremely limited, and it is suggested to arrive early. email@example.com
Idina Menzel, ‘Frozen’ heat up pop charts
NEW YORK (AP) — Tonywinning Idina Menzel – or Adele Dazeem if you’re John Travolta – is enjoying massive success with “Let It Go” from the animated film “Frozen,” but the entertainer is still perplexed that she’s finally triumphing on the pop charts with a show tune-esque track. “I’ve had a lot of self-introspection about this. This business is so hard, especially the music business, and I’ve tried so hard to crossover, to convince people just because I was in a Broadway show I didn’t have the street cred to be a rock or a pop singer,” she said in a recent interview. “And then the one time I have it, it’s the arrangement from the Disney movie.” Menzel’s musical moment grew even stronger when “Let It Go” won best original song at Sunday’s Academy Awards (the Oscar went to the songwriters and producers, Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez). The song has sold close to 1.5 million tracks and is a Top 20 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The “Frozen” album, a platinum success, is the soundtrack to spend the most time at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart with five weeks and counting; it recently beat the record set by the “Titantic” soundtrack, which featured Celine Dion’s epic, Oscar-winning “My Heart Will Go On.” “I’ve had ups and downs ... and I’m aware of when something’s happening and has an energy of its own,” said Menzel, who voices the lead character Elsa in the film, which won the best animated feature Oscar. “I’m aware enough to know of something special and to try and be in the moment.” Menzel is having more than a moment in music though, thanks to Travolta,
who uttered “Adele Dazeem” at the Oscars instead the singer’s name. He has since apologized. But Slate magazine created the ultrapopular “Travoltified” tool, where you can put in your name and see what Travolta would call you, and it has been dominating on Facebook and Twitter this week (side note: Travolta would call himself “Jan Thozomas.”) But after that fades, Menzel still has “Let It Go,” which is having a pop culture moment because of the thousands of videos posted of young girls and boys – and some adults – singing covers of the song. Cutely, Menzel took her younger sister, a second grade teacher, to the Oscars as her date (“Frozen” is about two sisters who are best friends, but have to keep distance because of Elsa’s uncontrollable powers). Menzel’s song has even eclipsed Demi Lovato’s version of “Let It Go” – technically the “single version.” Disney Music Group president Ken Bunt said he’s not surprised Menzel’s song has become more successful commercially, and adds that the soundtrack is a winner because the film plays like a cartoon musical. “The songs are part of the storytelling. They’re helping to tell the story of the film and I think that’s different then what we’ve seen in the last 15plus years in animated movies,” Bunt said. The 42-year-old does plan to record more music, but right now she’s focused on “If/Then,” the new Broadway musical she stars in. She will play the role of Elizabeth, a women returning to New York City to rebuild her life after a divorce, and she’s been rehearsing for weeks
at the Richard Rodgers Theatre, where she has nicely decorated room – or mini apartment – set up to help make her comfortable since the show begins previews Wednesday and officially opens March 30. Menzel said she usually learns a thing or two from the characters she portrays – whether it was her breakthrough as Maureen Johnson in “Rent” or Elphaba in “Wicked,” which won her a Tony in 2004. She has also starred on Fox’s “Glee,” playing the mother of Lea Michele’s character. Her latest role as Elizabeth – who is being pulled in two directions in “If/Then” – may seem parallel to Menzel’s personal life, since she and actor Taye Diggs announced they were separating after 10 years of marriage last year. “I’ve been lucky to have roles that teach me about myself at a time when I need to hear it – so I am learning while I’m in the role creating and rehearsing. Then I find a way in my own process to be able to leave it at the door and move on,” she said. Menzel even says she’s been able to relate to her young character in “Frozen”: “I always say, when I was younger I was more fierce than I am now. I wouldn’t have taken no for an answer. It’s the older you get, and even more successful, that you start to doubt yourself.” But Menzel isn’t living in regrets – and she even has useful advice for young performers, and her younger self. “You just have to keep doing what you love and try not to worry about following the rules,” she said. “And it may not work out, but if you’re really good at some point the stars align and then things happens.”
A poster advertising ‘Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues’ shows Ron Burgundy in Times Square.
Carly Smith A&E WRITER @dailyathenaeum
The sequel to “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy” was re-released last week with an Rrating and was supposed to include more content and jokes than the first version. “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues” was released originally in December and was rated PG-13. The two-hour film grabbed No. 2 at the box office next to “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug,” but the hype was there, from appearances by Ron Burgundy on talk shows to long lines at theaters for midnight showings. According to the movie posters, the re-release of “Anchorman 2” was to include 763 new jokes and 20 extra minutes of content. If the first version wasn’t bad enough, the re-release was 20 minutes and 763 jokes worse. “Anchorman 2” follows Ron Burgundy and his wife, Veronica Corningstone, as they move to New York City and work at new positions as news anchors. When Corningstone was promoted and Burgundy is fired, Corningstone chooses her career instead of her husband and sends him back to San Diego to work at Sea World. Bur-
gundy is fired for drinking on the job, and a producer, helping launch a 24-hour news network, GNN, in New York, confronts him. The remainder of the film follows Burgundy as he gets his old news team back together. They encounter difficulties while at GNN, and eventually, Burgundy tries to get Corningstone back. He shoots to stardom after his news team take a unique spin on the news, but his dreams are shattered when he becomes blind after an accident. The end of the film includes an odd fight scene between many different news teams and includes cameo appearances from many stars like Will Smith, Kanye West and Tina Fey. It also includes what happens to Burgundy and Corningstone after the injury and answers the questions surrounding Burgundy’s career and the importance of family life. This version of the film included two musical numbers titled, “Big World” and “If I Was Gay For A Day,” which emphasized the fact that they were being exposed to different cultures and lifestyles through the new news network. These songs didn’t make sense in the film and made it seem even more like a mockery to news anchors during those times
and to certain lifestyles. For example, they called a Muslim woman wearing a hijab a “scarfy–headed lady.” This was insensitive and offensive. The film included a scene of Burgundy trying to commit suicide by hanging himself. This was also insensitive and was not something to joke about, especially when suicide is a prevalent issue in society. The film delivered some stupid and offensive humor that wasn’t strong enough to carry the odd storyline of the film. Two of the funniest moments in the original “Anchorman 2” were deleted for this version, which seemed to be a “deleted scenes” extra on a DVD rather than a new film. This film was rated R because of some crude jokes and language. One of the jokes included Brian Fontana showing off his condom collection, which also was odd and inappropriate for the context of the movie. The length of the movie was also a deterrent. When the film isn’t as funny as the original “Anchorman,” it’s hard to sit through. But when it’s almost twoand-a-half hours long, it’s a little too much. This movie is one to miss, especially if you are offended easily. firstname.lastname@example.org

‘Man of La Mancha’ brings drama, humor by maria solano a&e writer @dailyathenaeum
The talented cast of the touring production “Man of La Mancha” brought an all new twist to the classic tale of Don Quixote to the Creative Arts Center Wednesday. As audience members waited in the lobby in anticipation of the story of Don Quixote, they shared their expectations. “I expect the show to be a drama with humor, as well, but a bit of a dark story of a man fighting demons,” said Bob DeWood, an audience member. “I have only seen the movie version and am excited to see the show live,” said Maria Fesz, an audience member. “I expect it to be enthralling and musi-
cally enjoyable.” This production included the Tony Award-winning score and novel that has inspired theatergoers from the beginning. As Quixote went after his quest for the impossible dream, audience members experienced his world and saw life through his eyes. Despite the challenges, Quixote never failed to see the good and innocence in a world filled with darkness and despair. “I went to high school with Jack Curenton (who plays Don Quixote) so I drove from Akron, Ohio to see him. He never ceases to amaze me,” said Susan Barahoff, an audience member. “The show far exceeded my expectations.” This is a classic story of the triumph of a man against his foolishness put together into a lyrical and
amusing adventure. The New York Daily News called the show “the musical that’s set above and apart from all the others by touching the heart. An exquisite musical play.” The performance of the most popular and wellknown musical number in the show, “The Impossible Dream,” was well done and displayed great musical talent. All in all, the musical was very well put together with great lighting effects, acting and musical numbers. The story was told in a comical yet serious way, and met the expectations of the audience. “If it is close to you, come see the show. The production was fabulous,” Barahoff said. email@example.com

in his sociology courses and other presentations on campus, Brewster advocates social equality and the fair treatment of LGBT individuals in society. According to Channell, Brewster was the first professor he came into contact with at WVU in his sociology 101 course, and he admitted being “struck” by his style of teaching immediately. “I also remember reading Brewster’s article, ‘Enough is Enough,’ in 2011 in The DA, and when Campus MovieFest came to WVU, I knew almost immediately that I wanted to help share his story,” Channell said. “I contacted him when I heard about the festival, and the work began, but the film actually focuses on an aspect that was never published in The DA. I interviewed Brewster multiple times, and he told me a story I’ll never forget.” Brewster shares his ex-
perience of coming out in 2011 in the film and touches on more emotional topics than he did in his previous DA article. “I think I am largely misunderstood because I am a extrovert in many capacities, but I am also a bit shy,” Brewster said. “I do have many apprehensions. I think a lot of people think I want either pity or attention, and that is not the case at all.” For Brewster, the most difficult part of creating the film was revisiting dark places in his past. “The most difficult part of sharing my story was taping on the Westover Bridge, which I had avoided rather successfully for almost two years,” Brewster said. “We were up there for almost 45 minutes, and for a few minutes, I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to do it, but Tyler (Channell) was incredibly professional, and I
didn’t want to fail him.” For Channell, the most difficult part of creating the film was deciding what to cut, as Campus MovieFest only allows for the creation of a film in seven days with only five minutes of footage shown in the competition. According to Channell, he edited the film in length at least seven times before he got the perfect final cut. “I’m hoping to make a full documentary with Brewster after the competition,” Channell said. “There’s more that I wanted to include about his story but didn’t have time due to the five-minute time limit.” Although the film didn’t win in the University’s competition, it racked up thousands of views on YouTube, earning it a spot in the wildcard competition. Brewster said when Channell approached him with the idea of doing “a story” on him, he assumed
it had something to do with a journalism class or was an interview for some other purpose – not a contest. He certainly didn’t anticipate it receiving the success it has thus far in the competiton. “First, I measure the amount of success by the number of lives that I impact by sharing my story and helping others realize that they are not alone, that depression is a horrible disease and that ‘coming out’ is not an easy process whatsoever,” Brewster said. “As far as the CMF contest, I am actually stunned. I had a feeling that the Mountaineer community and my networks could get us through one round in the wildcard contest, but I never anticipated winning three rounds.” Although Channell had dreams of making films as a child and is surprised the film is going to Hollywood, he admits being happier with the project regarding the outreach and support Brewster has received since the film’s release. “Hearing the stories he’s told me over the past few months has assured me that filmmaking is where I belong,” Channell said. “I had never thought much about how this film would affect my personal career when it was being produced. I just hope people take something from the film. I think it’s important to expose people to Brewster’s story and message and others like his to hopefully one day end bullying that is often accompanied with being gay.” For Channell, the next step in his career after the trip to Hollywood in June is to attend graduate school at WVU. After that, he isn’t quite sure. But he won’t rule out traveling the world and becoming a full-time filmmaker. Although parts of sharing his story and experience with bullying and depression were difficult, the experience was rewarding overall for Brewster. “When this movie was first shared on YouTube, I received some emails thanking me for my courage and my willingness to be vulnerable and share something so incredibly personal,” Brewster said. “But, the most rewarding part of this experience has been the reconnection with people who I had lost contact with over the years, from family to people from my hometown, to former students and former colleagues. I was really humbled by the number of students, faculty and administration who helped me to have the courage to share something so personal.” For Channell and Brewster, regardless of the film’s success in Hollywood in June, the purpose and reach of the film ended up being far greater than they anticipated and is already a success. “I’m hoping that people will enjoy the film. I’m not there to win,” Channell said. “I’m there to share a story I feel is important for the rest of the world to see.” firstname.lastname@example.org

dillon durst SPORTS WRITER @dailyathenaeum
Gibson, Bradley good hires for WVU In promoting former safeties coach Tony Gibson to defensive coordinator and adding former Penn State defensive coordinator Tom Bradley to the coaching staff, I think West Virginia head coach Dana Holgorsen realizes the time for change is now. Since former defensive coordinator Jeff Casteel bolted to Arizona to follow Rich Rodriguez, the defense has been a nightmare. However, I think Holgorsen has finally assembled a stable, knowledgeable staff on the defensive side of the football. Gibson and Bradley have a rich history of recruiting against each other in talent-rich western Pennsylvania, while Gibson was at West Virginia and Bradley at Penn State. With the two working together, I’m eager to see the results the duo produces, both on the field and the recruiting trail. In his time as defensive coordinator at Penn State, Bradley coached the Nittany Lions defense to six consecutive top 15 finishes in both total and scoring defense. Bradley also chips in 33 years of coaching experience under Joe Paterno. “For us to be able to get a guy with that much experience to coach a position, and be able to help and do all the things we need at this point is a great hire for us and a great addition to the Mountaineer family,” Gibson said in an interview with WVUsports.com. Bradley was originally added to the staff under the title of senior associate head coach but has since been named the defensive line coach. Damon Cogdell, who joined the staff in early January, will coach the linebackers with Gibson, while Brian Mitchell continues to work with the cornerbacks and Joe DeForest takes over as safeties coach. “We have five good coaches on defense and everyone’s going to play a part in it,” Gibson said. “You’ve got Brian Mitchell, who’s been a coordinator, (and) you’ve got Joe (DeForest), who’s been a coordinator, so those guys all play a big role in what we’re going to do and how we’re going to do it.” Last season, the Mountaineers’ defense was No. 101 in total defense and No. 108 in 2012. However, the unit was tied for No. 19 last season in turnovers gained, with 16 fumble recoveries and 12 interceptions in 12 games played, which is one positive aspect in a cloud of darkness. Along with an experienced and talented coaching staff, the defense itself returns several key players including junior Isaiah Bruce at spur linebacker, junior Nick Kwiatkoski at will linebacker, senior Jared Barber at sam linebacker and junior Karl Joseph at free safety. Without a doubt, linebacker has emerged as the deepest and most experienced position for the Mountaineers entering spring. With a rejuvenated staff ready to start fresh, it’ll be interesting to see the defensive progress being made in the spring game April 12 and the final product Aug. 30 against Alabama. email@example.com

Members of the WVU men’s basketball team play defense in a home game against Oklahoma Feb. 5.
No. 23 Oklahoma defeats West Virginia 72-62 despite Juwan Staten’s 24 points by doug walp sports writer @dougwalp
The West Virginia men’s basketball team lost for the fourth time in its last five games Wednesday as they fell on the road to the No. 23 Oklahoma Sooners in Norman, Okla. The Mountaineers (1614, 8-9 Big 12) are now 2-5 all-time against Oklahoma (22-8, 11-6), just 1-6 against AP-ranked teams this season and haven’t won a game on the road against a ranked opponent in more than three years. Junior guard Juwan Staten opened the game 5-5 from the field and scored 10 of WVU’s first 12 points. Staten finished with 24 points and six rebounds but didn’t get much help from his teammates. Freshman forward Devin
Williams managed to notch his seventh double-double of the season with 14 points and 13 rebounds, while junior guard Gary Browne put in 12 off the bench. Oklahoma’s Cameron Clark earned his own doubledouble with 19 points and 10 rebounds. Buddy Hield had a strong second half to finish with 13 for the Sooners, who exacted revenge for a 91-86 overtime defeat in Morgantown Feb. 5. After the two sides played to a 20-20 tie with 7:38 left in the first half, Oklahoma put together a 13-2 run during the next five minutes to take their biggest lead of the game to that point. A Staten layup eventually snapped a four-minute scoring drought with 2:16 to go in the first period, and four more points from West Virginia’s Big 12 Player of the Year candidate to close out
the half made it 33-28 Oklahoma at the intermission. The Mountaineers also scored first in the second half to cut it to a single possession game, while Oklahoma made one shot in the first four minutes following halftime. After an Eron Harris 3-pointer with 12:58 left, his first field goal of the game, the Mountaineers took their first lead since the 8:21 mark of the first half at 41-40. A rare score from junior forward Kevin Noreen pushed WVU’s advantage to 43-40 on its next possession, matching West Virginia’s largest lead of the night. But the Sooners shook off their slow shooting start to the second half and put together a 10-4 run to regain and push their lead to five with nine minutes remaining in the game. Junior guard Gary Browne
made it a one possession game again with a 3-pointer with 6:57 left, but OU’s Clark scored three points the old fashioned way at the other end, as Noreen fouled out, to make it a six point lead for Oklahoma with 6:42 left. The Sooners scored eight more unanswered points – six of which came from two more Hield 3s – in the next two minutes to stretch their lead to 13 and put the game away. The Mountaineers didn’t trim the deficit to under 10 the rest of the way. West Virginia finished just 4-13 from behind the arc, and 2-8 from the free throw line compared to 11-30 from three and 15-20 at the charity stripe for the Sooners. With the loss, West Virginia is no longer in control of its destiny in securing the last remaining first-round bye of next week’s Big 12 Conference tournament.
In fact, they now not only need a win at home against the Big 12 regular season champion Kansas Jayhawks on Saturday to assure a sixth place finish in the conference, they also need Oklahoma State and Baylor (also both 8-9) to lose their regular season finales. Both teams currently control the tiebreaker over WVU should any of the teams end up with the same regular season record. Despite traveling with the team and warming up in uniform before the game, sophomore guard Terry Henderson sat out his fourth straight contest with an illness. WVU has gone 1-3 over the span. The Mountaineers wrap up the 2014 regular season Saturday at home against No. 8 Kansas with tipoff scheduled for noon. firstname.lastname@example.org
Worley could be vital asset to 2014 WVU team by greg madia sports writer @dailyathenaeum
In the 2013 season as a true freshman, Daryl Worley played every position in the West Virginia secondary and even stepped up at linebacker occasionally. Recruited as a safety out of Penn Charter School in Philadelphia, Worley made an impact at just about every position he played. He made his first career start in only the third game of the season against Georgia State. From there, he never looked back. Worley made 45 tackles, broke up five passes and even had an intercep-
tion as a true freshman. He became a vital part of the WVU defense early. C o r n e r b a ck c o a c h Brian Mitchell recruited Worley and knew he had the maturity to play when arriving on campus. “I knew that in the recruiting process,” Mitchell said. “Then it was confirmed and reconfirmed from our strength and conditioning staff when he was going through offseason workouts. He’s a young man (who) does it the right way.” Through the first few spring practices, it’s clear WVU wants to make Worley a mainstay at cornerback. Having him play just one position will allow him to become great.
“He played every position in the secondary from nickel to dime corner, free safety to bandit safety and even played a backer position. If we allow him just to be a corner, which we’re going to do, he’ll be great,” Mitchell said. “He’s a versatile kid (and) a great field general, but we’re going to leave him at corner to make him the best corner he can be.” First-year defensive coordinator Tony Gibson understands what a No. 1 corner could do for a defense in the passhappy Big 12 Confer-
ence. Gibson said he sees value in what Worley can provide. “Daryl Worley plays with a lot of confidence. He’s our corner, (so) we’re not going to move him around at all,” Gibson said. “I think he could be really good, and he’s not anywhere near where he’s going to be yet. He’s a smart kid that plays hard.” Mitchell, who played in the NFL next to Deion Sanders for a few seasons and has coached nine corners in his career to the NFL level, said he thinks the 6-foot-2,
200-lb Worley could be a shutdown level cornerback. Mitchell said the sky is truly the limit for Worley. “I really think he could, and that’s what we’re trying to work toward,” Mitchell said. Worley will continue to work towards becoming an elite player throughout the spring. West Virginia will hold its final spring practice prior to spring break today and restart practice March 18 in full pads. email@example.com

WVU pitcher Harrison Musgrave looks on in a game against Pitt in the 2013 season.
by joe mitchin sports writer @dailyathenaeum
So far, so good for the Mountaineer baseball starting rotation in 2014. The staff of Harrison Musgrave, Sean Carley and John Means have been exceptional in the team’s first three weekends of the season. West Virginia, 5-4, is allowing just three runs per game through its first nine games. All three starters have pitched in three games and earned a run average of under 2.40. Friday was perhaps one of the best single-game outing in program history when
junior Musgrave struck out 12 hitters in eight innings of work. The defending Big 12 Pitcher of the Year allowed just two hits without allowing a run. “He’s ridiculous,” said senior first baseman Ryan McBroom. “(Musgrave) is always on his ‘A’ game. There’s never been a time I’ve seen him lower than an ‘A’ game. He just does his thing, and I’m proud of him.” In all, Musgrave is 1-0 with a 2.33 ERA and 27 strikeouts in 19.1 innings pitched. The ace of the staff’s performance was expected coming off a masterful sophomore campaign. Head coach Randy Mazey said Musgrave is only get-
ting better. “His pitches are getting better,” Mazey said. “He’s really competing and making great pitches when he needs to. There’s nothing you can say above and beyond what he does.” WVU boasts two other starters who are seeing a lot of early success. Junior Carley earned his first victory as a Mountaineer last weekend in a 6-2 win over Coastal Carolina. The Air Force transfer suffered an arm injury and sat out due to NCAA transfer rules to boast an ERA of below one. Carley has allowed just three runs, two of them earned, in 20 innings pitched.
The starting rotation is rounded out by junior Means, who could have been seen as the staff ’s weak link before the start of the season. However, the Olathe, Kan. native bounced back from a rough Feb. 23 outing against San Diego State to throw seven strong innings of six-hit ball in a win over James Madison. With the success the Mountaineers have received from the starting rotation to begin the season, the bullpen help is left sitting on the bench without much work. The bullpen pitched just six innings in three games last weekend in a series at Myrtle Beach,
S.C. WVU won all three games. “We have way more relief pitchers than we have innings to pitch because our starting pitching is so good,” Mazey said. “Not everybody is going to get to pitch on every weekend. That being the case, every opportunity you get, you have to take prime advantage of it.” West Virginia looks to keep the momentum going on the mound this weekend when the team makes a return trip to California to take on Sacramento State and UC-Riverside as its week-long spring break trip begins. firstname.lastname@example.org
Bills put game in Toronto on hold for one season ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — The Buffalo Bills are reclaiming their home-field advantage by postponing their annual game this season in Toronto, where they’ve gone

1-5 in the series. Team president Russ Brandon did not rule out ending the series despite four years remaining in the deal with Toro n t o - b a s e d Rogers Communications. Citing concerns of the Bills giving up a homefield edge and poor fan turnout north of the border, the Bills and Rogers announced Wednesday they have put the game in Toronto on hold for this season. The joint release with Rogers president Keith Pelley said both sides would “evaluate opportunities and build on the foundation to enhance future games.’’ However, Brandon provided no guarantee that the Bills would resume the series after questioning its viability. “We’re going to look at every aspect, that if we do come back that we have a more robust fan experience and try to create more of a home-field advantage,” Brandon said. “Right now, that was not the situation. And that was one of the reasons we wanted to get into a lot of detail with our partners up there and see if that’s viable moving forward.” The Bills will play all
eight of their home games at Ralph Wilson Stadium this season. The decision comes a little more than a year after the two sides agreed to renew the series for five years through 2017, after the original five-year deal expired. The Bills played their first game of the series in 2008 in Toronto, about a 2-hour drive from Buffalo, in a bid to expand their fan base and generate additional revenue from Canada’s largest city and financial capital. High ticket prices, initially averaging about $180, a playoff drought at 14 consecutive seasons and the lack of atmosphere in the cavernous domed Rogers Centre may have contributed to the lack of success. The postponement doesn’t come as a total surprise after questions were raised following the Bills’ 34-31 overtime loss to Atlanta at Toronto on Dec. 1. A few days later, Brandon wondered whether his team loses a home-field advantage by playing in Toronto. Brandon reiterated those concerns on Wednesday. “We’re trying to build
a fan-base north of the border and, last year, I would say it was a neutral ground,” Brandon said. He acknowledged that the Bills losing record has not helped. “It’s been a roller coaster from the standpoint of the losses and that’s on us,” Brandon said. “We have not played well up there. We have to take responsibility for that.” Bills players have complained about playing in what they regarded as a neutral-site setting and giving up a game in the far more raucous atmosphere at Orchard Park. The Bills also lost the edge they have in playing in the wintry elements at their outdoor home. Receiver Steve Johnson questioned whether the warm-weather Falcons “fixed’’ the schedule in getting to play indoors. Center Eric Wood had referred to the games in Toronto as “a joke.” Despite the troubles, Brandon noted the Bills have enjoyed a notable increase in fans from Toronto and across southern Ontario attending games at Orchard Park since the start of the series. Brandon estimated that
about 18 percent of fans attending home games are from Ontario. That’s about double than what it was before the series, and a few percentage points more than what the team draws from nearby Rochester. While the games in Toronto are on hold, the Bills’ objective to grow their market outside of Buffalo remains a priority. “Regionalization is a key lever for us moving forward and the Toronto marketplace and southern Ontario are a key element to that,” Brandon said. As part of the initial five-year deal, Rogers agreed to pay $78 million to essentially lease eight Bills home games – five regular season and three preseason. The final preseason game was dropped because of scheduling difficulties. In exchange, the Bills earned more than double what they usually generated from hosting games in Buffalo. The value of the most recent deal has not been revealed, but the price tag was expected to be lower after Rogers’ officials expressed concerns about the value of the series.
Clemson opens spring with QB battle CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) — For the first time in five years, Clemson has questions at quarterback. The Tigers started what figures to be a three-way battle to succeed recordsetting passer Tajh Boyd with the start of spring practice Wednesday. “I can’t wait to see how it plays out,” Boyd said. Neither can Clemson fans, who’ve grown comfortable with the durable Boyd under center the past three seasons. He threw for nearly 12,000 yards and an Atlantic Coast Conference record 107 touchdowns during his time at Clemson. But Boyd’s time is done he’ll audition for NFL personnel on campus Thursday at Clemson’s pro day – and coach Dabo Swinney is looking for a replacement among longtime backup Cole Stoudt,
redshirt freshman Chad Kelly and prospect Deshaun Watson, who enrolled early to take part in spring drills. Swinney said this week that Stoudt, who’ll be a senior next fall, will get first crack simply because “somebody has to go out there first.” “At the end of the day, it’s about scoring touchdowns and who can get that done,” Tigers offensive coordinator Chad Morris said. Stoudt, the son of former NFL quarterback Cliff Stoudt, has had the most experience, mostly mopping up after Boyd led the Tigers to a big lead and the outcome was no longer in doubt. Still, he’s completed more than 72 percent of his passes and had just one interception in 119 career pass attempts the
past three seasons. He’s spent the most time behind Boyd drilling in Morris’ high-tempo system and has shown ability to move the Tigers. “We were all competing together and making each other better,” Stoudt said. “When the coaches weren’t there, we were coaching each other to get better.” Chad Kelly also has an NFL quarterback pedigree – he’s the nephew of ex-Buffalo Bills great Jim Kelly – and a confidence that’s evident each time he takes the field, speaks into a camera or uses social media. Kelly got into a tiff early in his Clemson career when he said on Twitter he was out to supplant Stoudt as Boyd’s backup, something that did not happen. Kelly recovered from a severe knee injury in last
April’s spring game to play last season in games when the score was really out of hand. “Then there’s the wild card,” Boyd says in talking about Watson. The freshman was one of the country’s top dualthreat high school quarterbacks who accounted for more than 17,000 yards of offense at Gainesville High in Georgia and seems a perfect fit for Clemson’s offense. “This is a big playbook and it’s not easy for a freshman to come in and learn it,” Kelly said. Stoudt looked the sharpest at practice while Kelly also was on target during the workouts. Watson, perhaps nervous, missed on some throws in his first official college practice. Morris said not to look too deeply at anything that happened out there.

BOB HUGGINS QUOTE OF THE WEEK “We needed to go to Virginia Tech and win, we needed to beat Gonzaga and Purdue here, and if that had happened like it was supposed to happen, then you’re looking at 19 wins and you’re not even looking at first four in and last four out. That’s what these young guys have to understand.”

Junior WVU guard Juwan Staten drives to the basket in a home game against TCU Saturday.
Carey works his way up, brings WVU back to relevance by jon fehrens sports writer @dailyathenaeum
When West Virginia women’s basketball head coach Mike Carey arrived at WVU 13 years ago, the program was not in good shape. His office was small, all three of his assistants shared the same room and the facilities were subpar. When he asked a staff member for the Connecticut tape from the previous season, she responded by asking him if he was sure he wanted to look at it. After reviewing what the Huskies did to Alexis Basil’s squad, he was almost ready to call his alma mater, Salem College. But Carey’s heart has always been in West Virginia. It’s where he was born and where his family lives. Leaving was never an option for the Clarksburg native. “It’s been a challenge, but it’s been great. I knew I wanted to coach somewhere in the state of West Virginia. The administration has been great here. They gave me what I needed to be successful,” Carey said. It didn’t take long for Carey to establish credibility at WVU. Just one year after going 5-22 in the Big East, Carey guided West Virginia to its first winning season in more than six years. The 15-13 regular season record in 2003 marked the beginning of a turning point in women’s hoops at West Virginia. For more than a decade,
Carey’s defensive style of basketball stumped opponents and helped propel West Virginia into national headlines. In the 200304 campaign, Carey was named Big East Coach of the Year in his third year on the job. That year the Mountaineers went 21-11, which at the time was the third most wins in school history and the NCAA tournament for the first time in 12 years. Carey continued to find success when West Virginia entered the Big 12 Conference in 2012. In just their second year in the league, Carey’s intense demeanor directed the Mountaineers to their first conference title. Carey said he knew players like Asya Bussie and Christal Caldwell could be special, but he just had to patient. Four years later, on Bussie and Caldwell’s senior night, his team was cutting down the nets in the WVU Coliseum. “It’s great to win the Big 12 in our second year with this group. I really mean what I say about our seniors. They are great people, and they deserve everything,” Carey said. At times, Carey may get wary glances from fans who hear him yelling during timeouts at home games and he may seem harsh on his players. But Carey’s tactics work, and his players consistently respond in a positive way. His style of coaching has not only won the favor of his team, but has gained respect from his peers. Most recently, Kansas head
coach Bonnie Henrickson praised the way West Virginia plays basketball. “They’re willing to do the tough things. Defensively, their fours can guard guards. You know how many special guards there are in this league, and they have four players who can switch everything with some of the best guards in America,” Henrickson said. Tough basketball is exactly what WVU women’s hoops has turned into. Carey is not interested in style points, which is why he was fine that his team flew under the national radar for so long this season. West Virginia can enjoy its accomplishment, but it won’t be long until Carey is pacing furiously while drawing up plays for his team in the Big 12 Conference tournament. The Mountaineers earned a first round bye in the Phillip’s 66 Big 12 tournament and await the winner of TCU vs. Texas Saturday. firstname.lastname@example.org
