UMMC DOCTOR CURES HIV POSITIVE BABY WASHINGTON – A baby born with the AIDS virus appears to have been cured, scientists announced Sunday, describing the case of a child from Mississippi who’s now 2½ and has been off medication for about a year with no signs of infection. There’s no guarantee the child will remain healthy, although sophisticated testing uncovered just traces of the virus’ genetic material still lingering. If so, it would mark only the world’s second reported cure. Specialists say Sunday’s announcement, at a major AIDS meeting in Atlanta, offers promising clues for efforts to eliminate HIV infection in children, especially in AIDS-plagued African countries where too many babies are born with the virus. “You could call this about as close to a cure, if not a cure, that we’ve seen,” Dr. Anthony Fauci of the National Institutes of Health, who is familiar with the findings, told The Associated Press.

A doctor gave this baby faster and stronger treatment than is usual, starting a threedrug infusion within 30 hours of birth. That was before tests confirmed the infant was infected and not just at risk from a mother whose HIV wasn’t diagnosed until she was in labor. “I just felt like this baby was at higher-than-normal risk, and deserved our best shot,” See HIV, PAGE 5 FILE PHOTO (AUSTIN McAFEE) | The Daily Mississippian
Former Ole Miss linebacker goes pro in something other than sports Jonathan Cornell, former Ole Miss linebacker, is using his experience as a successful student-athlete to shape the minds of high school students in Meridian as a member of the Mississippi Teacher Corps. BY HAWLEY MARTIN firstname.lastname@example.org
As a football player for The University of Mississippi, Jonathan Cornell earned four letters, served as a team captain during his senior season and played an instrumental role in back-to-back Cotton Bowl victories in 2009 and 2010. After graduating from Ole Miss in the spring of 2011, earning a bachelor’s degree
in political science, Cornell has made an impact by teaching English, public speaking and political science at Meridian High School. Cornell is currently in his first year of a graduate program through the Mississippi Teacher Corps and will receive a master’s degree in curriculum and instruction after completing two years. Students in the Mississippi Teacher Corps teach at schools in impoverished
areas and are enrolled in education classes for the program two Saturdays out of the month at the Oxford campus of Ole Miss. Cornell said he first heard about the program in 2009 but that his relationship with former Ole Miss football coaches Ed Orgeron and Tyrone Nix sparked his interest. His coaches brought the need for relatable and smart teachers, improved educa-

tion standards and the importance of secondary education to Cornell’s attention. “I remember having good conversations with Coach Orgeron and Coach Nix about recruiting,” Cornell said. “Coach O is a big-time recruiter, and then as my relationship matured with Coach Nix, I kind of got deeper into (the issue), and one of the reasons why a lot of Mississippian athletes weren’t recruited was be-
cause (the recruiters at Ole Miss) felt, and a lot of schools felt, like Mississippi athletes wouldn’t be able to become (academically) eligible.” Cornell said his experience playing football is responsible in large part for his easy transition and success as he began teaching. “I don’t want to say (teaching) is the same (as playing football) because it’s not, but See CORNELL, PAGE 4

Last week, Mississippi finally got around to ratifying the 13th Amendment. That would be the constitutional amendment that was first passed in 1865 and abolished slavery.

piece of legislation that put a stop to discriminatory practices that disenfranchised minority voters. After the movie “Lincoln” didn’t take home best picture at the Academy Awards last weekend, Lincoln’s legacy and the struggle for racial equality are having a rough time. The challenge to the Voting Rights Act comes from Shelby County, Ala. Shelby is one of the counties in nine states, mostly in the South, required by the Voting Rights Act to get pre-approval by the Department of Justice on any proposed change to their election

procedures. In the arguments before the court, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, shockingly if not surprisingly, referred to the continued existence of the Voting Rights Act as a “racial entitlement.” Scalia is right; the act is a racial entitlement. How dare minority citizens, who account for almost 40 percent of the population of this country, want legislative protections to ensure that they can actively participate in our democratic form of government? The nerve of some people to want their rights protected. Scalia may have meant that

the act is an archaic vestige of the past and that racism is a problem we’ve firmly defeated. It’s true that there are no more poll taxes and literacy tests keeping minorities from voting, nor do minorities face potential bodily harm to dare to vote. Today they’ve been replaced by far more insidious measures. In the wake of the 2008 election, more than 30 states introduced new voter identification measures. The intent of the legislation was to curb voter fraud, which is a relaSee VOTING, PAGE 3

But an English master roamed South Armagh; the sheep that followed were beautiful yet utterly stupid creatures. Little bushy bubbles of white woolen joy, frolicking through the pasture, casting chorus at the master’s feet. If the master needed a jacket, he borrowed their hair. The master convinced the flock, like the fox to the crow, “Without wool, it is better to help with your obesity. Through the winter, you’ll freeze the pounds free for a swimsuit in summer.” The master smiled, enjoying his new fleece, and the sheep tweeted and blogged, bleating across social media: “I see my hair on master’s arm, yah!”; “Feels so good to be part of something”; “Like totally cool, the shivering tightens my thighs.” The good shepherd led the naked, shivering flock over a knoll, and the master deemed it time to eat. The master found a tender young
adult sheep and then led it to the hedgerow. The master returned alone. In front of the flock, the master cried, “I couldn’t save the young lad.” The master took another bite of a sandwich and continued, “A pre-existing condition that insurance companies wouldn’t insure forgot him. He couldn’t get health insurance that would have saved him.” Horrified, the flock blogged and tweeted — bleating in unison: “We can’t allow these insurance companies. Let me tell you the story of a poor lad who couldn’t get health insurance. We’re part of something; are you?” The master smiled while listening and then replied, as if the fox to the goat, “If you gave me more dairy, then I could check everyone’s blood for disease.” The sheep agreed and gave their currency willingly. The master repaid village debts with the yogurt made from the sheep’s dairy, and men came to insure the sheep. However, they removed the un-

productive members of the flock, mostly the elderly and the young. The men insured property and not health. The English master herded his flock all over South Armagh, showing his flock off at competitions and even supplying the yearly feast with lamb. However, due to overmilking, the flock began to look weary and mangy, along with being naked and shivering. Where the master once won competitions, others now asked that the flock not enter the village, or be seen, for that matter. A black ram had been watching, shadowing the mangy, naked, shivering flock for some time. The ram thought, “How terrible the flock looks. I live without a master, and they look worse than I do.” One day while collecting currency from the flock, the master only heard the milk money hitting the tin pail, and the black ram only heard his own running, but the flock heard the most important sound. They heard the crack
from the ram that headbutted the master. “My name is One-Shot Paddy,” the black ram joyfully said, kicking legs out and twirling circles over the unconscious master. “I always knock ’em down in one hit!” The mangy, naked, shivering flock looked horrified. They blogged, they tweeted — they bleated, “Master promised the flock a new home, Master promised an award for top producer, Master promised hugs. Aw, no master means we’re not part of something. Not fair!” The ram listened and then replied despairingly, as if the fox talking to the mask, “Promised air that you paid with the wool off your back for.” The ram left, the sheep bleated and the master woke up, resuming control of the flock. Moral of the story: People believe in the flock more than any other ideology, even freedom or justice. Daniel Purdy is an English senior.
Let’s not make the same mistake #Sequester2013
BY Phil McCausland email@example.com
No one understands the sequester. No one wants to talk about the sequester. No one can even make that great of a joke about the sequester (see the most recent “Saturday Night Live”). Nevertheless, I’m going to talk to you about the sequester because it affects all of us. When the debt limit was raised in 2011, a compromise with congressional Republicans was made. Democrats promised they would work with Republicans to cut $1.2 trillion from the deficit; however, there was a caveat. They had to come to an agreement by 11:59 on March 1 or there would be automatic cuts totaling $1.2 trillion over the next nine years.
Even if you haven’t seen the familiar logos of CNN or Fox News or picked up a national newspaper for a while, you probably know that for Republicans and Democrats to come to an agreement over budget cuts is as realistic as us having NCAA tournament plans for our basketball team. It’ll never happen, and it didn’t happen. Now, instead of making budget cuts with the accuracy of a scalpel, automatic budget cuts will be made over the next nine years with the blunt force of a rusty hatchet. From the military, $550 billion will be taken. On the domestic side, health care, education, law enforcement, disaster relief, unemployment benefits, nonprofit organization funds, food inspection, scientific research and more will all have their budgets affected. This means that some of the 15 million students collecting grants and receiving workstudy assignments could see loans in the future.

It might be time for you to pay attention. We can joke about the differences between Republicans and Democrats and conservatives and liberals, but until we find a way for these two sides to work together, we and the country are going to be screwed. It is tough to believe we have elected people to lead and steward us who are too petty and bitter to allow themselves to come up with any real compromise, yet sequestration is upon us. They would rather hang on to blame displacement and finger-pointing than make any

kind of effectual change. We need to tell our politicians that we do not accept blind budget cuts our government has little control over. We also need to be willing to work with and accommodate people with whom we don’t necessarily agree. It’s all part of growing up. The change starts with us. Let’s not make the same mistakes.
tively small issue. But the effect of this legislation would have been to disenfranchise a group of voters who were overwhelmingly minority voters. It’s estimated that almost three times as many minority voters lacked the proper forms of ID required by these laws than white voters. Arguably, Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act, which deals with pre-approval, is an erosion of federalism. It hinders a state’s ability to make sometimes-necessary changes easily. Yes, Shelby County, any attempt to change your voting laws requires a more involved process than it may in other counties not covered by Section 5. But all a state or county has to prove to get pre-approval from the Department of Justice is that the intended change won’t have a discriminatory effect. The sad fact is that most petitions can’t meet that standard and are rejected. Section 5 of the act was supposed to be a temporary measure. The act in its entirety has come up for renewal before Congress four times, and every time it has been passed without change or amendment. Most recently, Congress renewed the Voting Rights Act in 2006 for 25 years because it felt there was a real need to continue the protections offered by the act. This country has arguably come a long way in the 50 years since the civil rights movement. Great improvements have been made, but the specter of deeply ingrained racism still haunts us. When a Supreme Court justice calls a protection of rights a racial entitlement, it should remind us just how far we still have to go to achieve equality.

the principles are still the same,” he said. Cornell explained that his actions and decisions on the football field had a direct effect on the responses and actions of his teammates. Similarly, he said his actions in the classroom directly affect the knowledge of his students, but that the biggest difference is that the stakes are higher in teaching. Cornell said that having a deep well of experience from which to draw has helped him relate to his students. “The guys automatically think I’m cool because I played football and did relatively well,” he said. Cornell said that growing up with five sisters has allowed him to relate to the
girls in his classes as well. Cornell said he has sought guidance from a variety of individuals in his journey through the Mississippi Teachers Corps program, but he said the academic influence he received from Susan Allen, one of his political science professors, the mentoring from his coach, Tyrone Nix, and the collaboration with his classmates have helped him the most in his progression through the graduate program. “My teaching style is very similar to Coach Nix’s coaching style — intense pressure, upbeat, let’s keep going, let’s go, know your stuff,” Cornell said. Cornell said that working with students at Meridian High School has been a rewarding experience. “The first thing that popped to mind is having the actual

athletes in class,” Cornell said. “I have the credibility to actually tell them, ‘Yeah, what you’re doing is exceptional, but you still need to do your best, even with the things that you think aren’t that important.’” Cornell also said he enjoys watching his students mature in their knowledge. “Just having children connect the dots in some kind of different way is pretty cool,” he said. “The day a girl from my class came up to me and said, ‘Hey, you know, your class really helped me with my history class, and I was able to give (my class) a whole explanation of why it was that this (historical event) happened.’” Thomas Kuriakose, classmate and roommate of Cornell, teaches math at Meridian High School. Kuriakose said the best part about working with Cornell is their ability to collaborate. “We teach a lot of the same kids, and we both teach in the same building,” Kuria-

challenging circumstances, and he went to teach in a placement that wasn’t easy by any stretch,” Johnson said. Johnson said he is proud of what Cornell has been able to accomplish in Meridian. “I’ve observed him on multiple occasions, and during my observations I’ve been impressed with the way that he interacts with the students and develops a strong rapport with the students and almost coaches them,” Johnson said. “There are elements in his classroom such as — he teaches public speaking in one of his sections — he’ll have the students shake each others’ hands, clap for each other in support of their speeches and their classroom activities, etc. “He’s one that has improved a great deal and become a strong teacher for a first-year teacher.” For a complete breakdown of the Mississippi Teacher Corps program, visit http:// mtc.olemiss.edu/

Eighty years of remembrance: Washington memorial trees Willow oak trees on the Ole Miss campus celebrate the memory of George and Martha Washington. BY Taylor Delandro
Reese DAR chapter’s secretary, said she feels that students should continue to remember George Washington when passing or viewing the
trees. “I hope that the students can become aware of these magnificent trees and that they will be a reminder of George
Washington and what it means to be an American,” Bullion said. Each year, the Daughters do something special to re-
member George Washington, and in 1932, the gift was the trees. A plaque lies at the base of each tree, noting the year and purpose of the memorial. A David Reese chapter DAR medallion also lies on each plaque. The trees, while functional, should be appreciated for more than their shade, according to John Arrechea, Oxford resident and a retired forester. “While walking by or by sitting on the benches in view, the students, faculty and staff should continue to enjoy their shade and natural beauty for many, many years,” Arrechea said. “They should also be reminded of our great first president and what our country should mean to each of them.”
sive treatment of other highrisk babies. “Maybe we’ll be able to block this reservoir seeding,” Persaud said. No one should stop antiAIDS drugs as a result of this case, Fauci cautioned. But “it opens up a lot of doors” to research if other children can be helped, he said. “It makes perfect sense what happened.” Better than treatment is to prevent babies from being born with HIV in the first place. About 300,000 children were born with HIV in 2011, mostly in poor countries where only about 60 percent of infected pregnant women get treatment that can keep them from passing the virus to their babies. In the U.S., such births are very rare because HIV testing and treatment long have been part of prenatal care.
“We can’t promise to cure babies who are infected. We can promise to prevent the vast majority of transmissions if the moms are tested during every pregnancy,” Gay stressed. The only other person considered cured of the AIDS virus underwent a very different and risky kind of treatment - a bone marrow transplant from a special donor, one of the rare people who is naturally resistant to HIV. Timothy Ray Brown of San Francisco has not needed HIV medications in the five years since that transplant. The Mississippi case shows “there may be different cures for different populations of HIV-infected people,” said Dr. Rowena Johnston of amFAR, the Foundation for AIDS Research. That group funded Persaud’s team to explore possible cases of pediat-
ric cures. It also suggests that scientists should look back at other children who’ve been treated since shortly after birth, including some reports of possible cures in the late 1990s that were dismissed at the time, said Dr. Steven Deeks of the University of California, San Francisco, who also has seen the findings. “This will likely inspire the field, make people more optimistic that this is possible,” he said. In the Mississippi case, the mother had had no prenatal care when she came to a rural emergency room in advanced labor. A rapid test detected HIV. In such cases, doctors typically give the newborn low-dose medication in hopes of preventing HIV from taking root. But the small hospital didn’t have the proper liquid kind, and sent the infant to Gay’s medical center. She
gave the baby higher treatment-level doses. The child responded well through age 18 months, when the family temporarily quit returning and stopped treatment, researchers said. When they returned several months later, remarkably, Gay’s standard tests detected no virus in the child’s blood. Ten months after treatment stopped, a battery of super-sensitive tests at half a dozen laboratories found no sign of the virus’ return. There were only some remnants of genetic material that don’t appear able to replicate, Persaud said. In Mississippi, Gay gives the child a check-up every few months: “I just check for the virus and keep praying that it stays gone.” The mother’s HIV is being controlled with medication and she is “quite excited for her child,” Gay added.
Two willow oak trees stand east of the Johnson Commons ballroom. They were planted by the David Reese chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution in remembrance of George and Martha Washington. The trees were a gift to the university in 1932, the bicentennial of President Washington’s birth, from the Daughters of the American Revolution. The group is made up of women who can trace their lineage directly to someone who served in the American Revolution, and they aim to preserve the memory of those who fought for freedom in the Revolutionary War. Maralyn Bullion, the David

Dr. Hannah Gay, a pediatric HIV specialist at the University of Mississippi, said in an interview. That fast action apparently knocked out HIV in the baby’s blood before it could form hideouts in the body. Those so-called reservoirs of dormant cells usually rapidly reinfect anyone who stops medication, said Dr. Deborah Persaud of Johns Hopkins Children’s Center. She led the investigation that deemed the child “functionally cured,” meaning in long-term remission even if all traces of the virus haven’t been completely eradicated. Next, Persaud’s team is planning a study to try to prove that, with more aggres-

THE BIG EVENT
The Big Event had its third annual day of service this past weekend. Doug Odom, senior classics and English major and codirector of the Big Event, estimated that 1,400 students registered for the volunteer efforts. The volunteers, mainly students, spread out across Oxford to complete various service projects in the community. Odom said he thought this year’s Big Event was a monumental success. He said his committee was amazing and had worked tirelessly since September to plan for the day. “It’s absolutely incredible to see just how service-oriented our students are here at Ole Miss when they not only wake up at 6 a.m. for a day of service, but they also braved the 25-degree weather,” Odom said. “We learned a lot from this year’s event, and I have no doubt it will continue to grow and be refined as the years go by.”

DIY: Everyone should know how to change a flat tire from trunk
Make sure the car is jacked up high enough where the tire is no longer able to touch the ground.
Take the wheel off

So you’re driving around the countryside in the pleasant 70-degree weather while enjoying music when all of a sudden you hear a loud thump (best way I can describe it), and your car starts to pull hard either left or right. Well, you have just experienced one of the inevitable joys of life: a flat tire. It can happen to anyone; in fact it has happened to me numerous times (I have really good luck), but what do you do?
All cars are different, so I can’t possibly describe every one of them here. This guide explains the process for a car that uses a donut spare, the most common. If your car uses a different method, refer to your owner’s manual. If you are unlucky enough that your car came without a spare, it may use a one-time-
use air canister, which will only help you if you have a flat and not a blowout, in which case you will have to call a tow truck.
Pull to a safe area off the road Don’t freak out. Turn your emergency flashers on and slowly pull off the road and come to a complete stop. If possible, try to pull into a parking lot, but if this is not an option, make sure you pull far enough away from the road to avoid possible disaster.
Turn your car off Turn your ignition off, then put your car into park (or into a gear with a manual) and put on the emergency brake. If you’re on the side of the road, keep your flashers on.
Get spare tire and jack
Go to your trunk and remove the mat or panel that is covering the spare tire. Under the mat or panel, you should see your spare tire, a jack and its handle and a lug nut wrench. Unscrew any bolts that are holding the tools down. Take your spare tire and other tools to the flat tire. Begin to loosen up the lug nuts on the wheel enough that you can unscrew them with your hand.
Jack up the car
Now that your car is jacked up (not a pun), completely unscrew the lug nuts and take off the wheel. You may have to hold the wheel, but you should have loosened up the lug nuts enough in step 4 to avoid this.
Mount the spare tire
Put air in the spare
Now put the jack underneath the appropriate jack points. If you are unsure where those are, you can refer to the owner’s manual or there might be a diagram on the jack. After you have it underneath the jack point, you can begin jacking the car up. Most jacks that come with cars come with a handle that has a hook at the end of it. Hook this around the circular end of the jack and move it in a clockwise motion.
Now take your spare tire and mount it on the car. Make sure the wheel is completely on the hub; it should sit on the wheel studs without falling off. Now screw the lug nuts onto the wheel in a diagonal pattern so the wheel sits on the hub straight. Make sure you don’t tighten the lug nuts all the way one at a time; alternate tight-

Now that you can’t tighten the lug nuts up anymore without moving the wheel, you need to lower the car back down. Just move the jack handle in a counterclockwise position until the car is completely on the ground and you can remove the jack. Then tighten the lug nuts all the way.

Sometimes the spare tire itself may need air, which is why you should always have a small air pump in your car. You can buy these pumps for about $30, and they just plug into your DC outlet in your car. Some cars may come with an air canister that you can use to pump up the flat. But these are usually for onetime use, and it is still best to buy an air pump.
Put flat tire and tools back in the trunk Now take your flat tire and your tools and put them back in your trunk. The wheel should fit in your trunk unless you have a small car, or a DeLorean, in which case you might just have to put the tire in the passenger seat. Then slowly merge back onto the road.

They scored 75 in the first matchup with Ole Miss. “There’s moments of truth throughout the course of a game that are going to determine winning and losing, and they seized all those moments,” Kennedy said. Junior forward Murphy Holloway led the Rebels with 22 points, 19 rebounds and five steals. But Holloway was far from perfect, especially on the defensive end.

Borchert was 7-of-10 from the field, including 3-of-4 from 3-point range, and 4-of-4 from the free-throw line. “Face fours have killed us all year,” Kennedy said. “Erik Murphy (Florida) killed us. Kyle Wiltjer (Kentucky) killed us. Colin Borchert killed us. We struggle with face fours because we are never at the point of attack on ball screens, and as a result, we get strung out.” For Mississippi State, Craig Sword tied a career high with nine assists, and Fred Thomas tied a career high with three blocked shots.

‘INEXCUSABLE’: NCAA TOURNEY Diamond Rebs sweep FIU HOPES TAKE ANOTHER BLOW O L E M I S S S P O RT S I N F O R M AT I O N
Ole Miss likely burst its own bubble by losing to the worst team in the SEC in a 73-67 loss to in-state rival Mississippi State. With the loss, questions surrounding Andy Kennedy’s job security have increased. BY Tyler Bischoff firstname.lastname@example.org
STARKVILLE – With a bid to the NCAA tournament on the line, Ole Miss couldn’t afford a loss the rest of the regular season, especially to the last place team in the Southeastern Conference, and the Rebels got whipped by their in-state rival, 73-67. Mississippi State (8-20, 3-13 SEC), which entered the game on a 13-game losing streak, never trailed in the second half and more than likely eliminated the Rebels’ (21-8, 10-6 SEC) chances at an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament. “Mississippi State was playing like the team that was fighting for their NCAA Tournament lives,” head coach Andy Kennedy said. “I have no explanation for that.

SUNDAY: OLE MISS 8, FIU 1 UNIVERSITY PARK, Fla. – Sophomore right-hander Sam Smith turned in a stellar performance for the Rebels on Sunday, allowing only one unearned run through six innings as No. 8 Ole Miss (11-1) defeated Florida International (7-5) by a score of 8-1. The win completed a series sweep of the Panthers and gave the Ole Miss its third consecutive series sweep to open the season. It’s the first time the Rebels have posted three series sweeps to open a year since the 2004 season. Smith (2-0) made the start in place of slated starter Chris Ellis and was masterful in frustrating FIU hitters during his 6.0 innings of work. He allowed one unearned run on six scattered hits with a walk and five strikeouts in his time on the mound. SATURDAY: OLE MISS 8, FIU 3 UNIVERSITY PARK, Fla. – It was an opportunistic offense combined with a solid outing from starter Mike Mayers that pulled the Rebels through on Saturday, scoring eight runs on
10 hits as No. 8 Ole Miss (10-1) defeated Florida International (7-4) by a score of 8-3. The win clinched the weekend series for the Rebels and set up an opportunity for a third consecutive weekend sweep with the series finale at 11 a.m. CT on Sunday. Mayers (1-0) picked up the win, allowing two runs on six hits with no walks and six strikeouts across 7.0 innings of work. Jeremy Massie closed out the game with 2.0 innings of work, allowing one unearned run on two hits with a strikeout. FRIDAY: OLE MISS 11, FIU 9 UNIVERSITY PARK, Fla. – Austin Anderson went 4-for5 to help pace a Rebel offense that needed each one of its 16 hits on the night as No. 8 Ole Miss (9-1) defeated Florida International (7-3) by a score of 11-9 Friday night in the series opener. Anderson drove in three runs and scored two, while Stuart Turner also came up big with a 3-for-5 night with three RBI. Eight Rebels notched hits on See BASEBALL, PAGE 11
