For the safety of the nation. That was the rationale behind President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s Executive Order 9066. The order, a response to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941, led to more than 120,000 Japanese Americans being forced from their homes on the West Coast into internment camps in the American interior. More than two-thirds of the Japanese Americans interned during World War II were Nisei – second-generation Japanese Americans whose median age was 17 years old. Deemed potential traitors, many thousands of Nisei were deprived of their college education. In 1942, academic and church coalitions formed the National Japanese American Student Relocation Council, which tried to move students from camps to colleges. But schools, many of them in the Midwest, refused admission or already had full quotas of 10 to 25 students. However, the University of Nebraska was not only among the first to accept Japanese American students, but was the only school in the Big 6 to do so. By the war’s end, Nebraska had the third-largest number of Nisei students; only Utah and Colorado admitted more.

The University of Nebraska served as a haven for Nisei students whose education was interrupted by Order 9066. In spring 2003, three Daily Nebraskan journalists spent a week in Los Angeles, interviewing seven of the more than 100 Nisei who attended NU between 1942 and 1945. We revisited the project – “An Opportunity in Crisis: The Japanese American Experience at University of Nebraska” – last week. As the news staff worked to examine and explain the impact of President Donald Trump’s executive order on immigration, we were stunned by the poignant parallels between the immigration ban and the Nisei experience during World War II. The 2003 Daily Nebraskan editorial board, too, noticed parallels between the events leading toward Executive Order 9066 and a more current political climate: Naturally, the first foreign attack on American soil made the public uneasy. Pearl Harbor scared the American public, much like Sept. 11 scared our generation. The Japanese were the enemy, and the United States wanted to ensure the public was safe from infiltration from the inside. Reparations came by way of President Ronald Reagan, a long overdue – and more symbolic than anything else – apology to

those interned. And now, we fear that American fear will cause the travesty of the World War II Japanese American experience to repeat itself. After 9/11, Arab Americans were the enemy. If you looked like Osama bin Laden, you likely were a follower of Osama – and a follower willing to carry out al-Qaida’s wishes, no less. Thus, the discrimination, the hatred, the division of the American public gained steam. This discrimination, the hatred, the division – very much alive less than two years after the 9/11 terrorist attacks – seems to have only grown stronger. Last week, universities around the nation scrambled to reassure their international student populations after President Donald Trump’s executive order on immigration sent a clear message to those who hailed from Iraq, Iran, Syria, Sudan, Somalia, Libya and Yemen: “We don’t want you here.” Right here at the University of NebraskaLincoln, more than 100 students, faculty and staff members were affected by this message. For the safety of the nation. This isn’t to say that Trump’s temporary

The Onion co-founder gives talk at UNL

Kayla Kyle dn staff writer

Scott Dikkers, the co-founder of the satirical newspaper, now a digital media company, The Onion spoke at the Nebraska Union on Wednesday night. In his presentation “The Funny Stories Behind the Funny Stories,” Dikkers spoke about his experiences creating The Onion and gave advice to future writers and entrepreneurs. The event was sponsored by the University Program Council. Dikkers began the speech by asking the audience what Nebraskans did for fun, which multiple people in the audience responded “corn.” Dikkers then went on to say that he didn’t know anything about journalism but continued to talk about his past experiences and growing up in Madison, Wisconsin. “I was born into a family with no sense of humor,” Dikkers said. “I don’t remember any laughter in my childhood home.”

Dikkers went on to say that he had attempted suicide in third grade by holding his breath. Shortly after, however, he discovered Mad Magazine, a humor publication. This is where he gained inspiration to begin curating his own comic strips and jokes. A theme throughout the talk was that “humor is a coping mechanism for everything.” Dikkers said that joking was how people moved on from hardships. He mentioned that all of The Onion’s first writers came from traumatic pasts, were poor and didn’t have huge dreams for the future. One anecdote he told was about a writer who used to eat raw onions on bread for his meals because he couldn’t afford anything else. Dikkers said those people were “the funniest people he had met.” As the company grew, Dikkers turned the satirical newspaper into a full-blown parody of a newspaper, using statistics and charts and weather reports. In doing this, he had to start treating The Onion entirely like a business and had to look at things more professionally.

Due to this, Dikkers invested all his money into the company and spent many months homeless as The Onion was taking off and he was becoming more of a celebrity. “That was the happiest time of my life,” he said. “When you’re doing what you love, the material things don’t matter.” Towards the end of the talk, attendees were invited to ask questions of Dikkers. Some asked about fake news and the future of journalism to which Dikkers responded that “journalism was a thing that you could trust” but that it is moving towards entertainment with the recent political climate. Dikkers ended the talk by discussing his podcast, “Comedy Insider,” where he interviews comedians and talks about how they got to where they are. He also gave five tips to the audience which included “living your mission” and doing what you want to do, and “invest your time, not your money.” He went on to say that he always failed in business endeavors when he invested only money and no passion.

College student and Wisconsin native, Bailey Friederichs, attended the talk and found it very inspirational and personal. “Having grown up in Madison, I enjoyed hearing about something that was so present as I was growing up,” he said. “The Onion was everywhere when I was younger and it’s inspiring to see someone from my city being so successful in such a challenging field.” Another attendee, Madison Nichols, liked Dikkers advice to come up with your own ideas. “The Onion was a new concept when it came out and that’s why it’s so successful,” Nichols said. “If you can come up with something new and interesting, that will be your biggest success.” The event ended with Dikkers encouraging people to create and proceeded to do a meet-and-greet for a select few attending the talk.

Students prepare for upcoming career fair

daphne realpe | dn Staff With career fair preparation week underway, some University of Nebraska-Lincoln students are polishing their resumes, practicing their elevator speeches and nailing down valuable interview skills with help from UNL Career Services. Kayla Ott, communication coordinator for

UNL’s Career Services, said one of the most valuable tips the organization has is a simple one: preparation. Ott said recruiters are looking for students who take time to do their research beforehand. “Actually looking at which employers are going to be there and then going to the employer’s website and seeing what positions they’re offering is important,” Ott said. “Some more specific questions will really help a student stand out to show they’ve taken the time to do the research beforehand.” She also said using one of the many opportunities Career Services has to review resumes can help in tying up loose ends before the interview. “We offer students a variety of opportunities to actually review their resumes before they go to the fair,” Ott said. Ott said once the resume is perfect, print multiple copies to give the employers. A perfect conversation could be wasted if the employer doesn’t have a resume to remember a

networking student by. “We just recommend always bringing more [resumes] than you think so you always feel prepared and you’re never caught without having a resume to give to an employer,” Ott said. Students should also think about what to wear for the career fair. Ott said if they’re going to practice networking, students can dress business casual. However, if they want to land a job or internship, students should dress business professional. It’s also important to practice how you will introduce yourself at the career fair. Ott said for a great first impression, students should include their name, major, and why they’re interested in the company. “We recommend that students practice that because it can be one of those things that you get caught off guard if you haven’t thought about how you’re going to approach the employer,” Ott said. 24 hours before the career fair, students

can look over a map of the booths on Husker Hire Link. Ott said because some career fairs are held in Pinnacle Bank Arena, students can get lost in the masses of booths. “We have over 350 employers there, so it’s a giant space that can feel really overwhelming,” Ott said. “It makes it less overwhelming if you have an idea of who you’re going to go talk to and their booth location.” Confidence is key. A good first impression when meeting the recruiter can lead to a great conversation and a job, Ott said. “[Recruiters are looking for] students who have the confidence when they go up to the employer,” Ott said. “A strong handshake and nonverbal communication can speak to you and your interest with the employer.” For more information on how to prepare for career fairs, visit UNL Career Services or go online at NEWS@DAILYNEBRASKAN.COM




ASUN votes to support DACA, rally in Feb. 8 meeting Noah Johnson dn staff writer

Three constitutional amendments, as well as several other new pieces of legislation were introduced to senate during Wednesday’s Association of Students of the University of Nebraska senate meeting. Senator Ignacio Correas submitted three ASUN Constitutional amendments during last week’s senate meeting, but they were moved to this week’s senate meeting to be voted on. If passed, the amendments will be added to the ballot for the Spring General Election. For each amendment to be passed, once placed on the ballot, it would have to receive a twothirds majority from voting students. The first amendment submitted by Correas asked that ASUN increase its number of senators from 35 to 40. The amendment also removes a rule stating that an additional senator will be added once the average of 650 students per senator has exceeded. Correas hopes this would stop the amount of senators from continuing to grow as student enrollment continues to increase. According to Correas, the system would work like the United States House of Representatives or Nebraska legislature. In order for a college to add a senator, another college would lose a senator. The amendment passed with the exception of Senator Brandy Judkins, who voted against the amendment. The second amendment introduced to senate asked that ASUN use at-large senate members to fill open senate positions for vacant colleges, provided no one from the college has applied or been found suitable for the position. Currently, the colleges of Dentistry, Nursing and the Graduate College have vacant senate seats that can be allocated to at-large senate members. The amendment passed unanimously. The final constitutional amendment would require that the positions of government liaison committee chair, ASUN treasurer and staff would be required to gain senate approval prior to being appointed. Currently, these positions are appointed by the president, without senate approval. Senator Alec Williams voiced his support for the bill, saying he believes in the use of a checks and balances approach in this instance. “We get a more unified directive when senate chooses and supports the GLC chair,” Williams said. President Spencer Hartman voiced his support for the bill as well, adding that he

file photo | dn favors a stronger legislative branch over the executive branch. All senators voted in support of the amendment, with the exception of Senator Bryan Brunson, who chose to abstain. ASUN then moved into new legislation, starting with a senate resolution submitted by the Committee for Diversity and Inclusion asking for ASUN support for undocumented and Deferred Action for Children Arrivals program students. According to the bill, there are 5,348 DACA program-approved students in the state of Nebraska. DACA is a policy implemented by former President Barack Obama that allows minors who come to the country as undocumented citizens from being deported for two years. Recently, University of Nebraska president Hank Bounds, along with 623 other university and college presidents, signed a statement supporting DACA and undocumented immigrant students.

Valeria Rodriguez, president of the Define American chapter at UNL, said it was important for the university to protect its “DACAmented” students. Rodriguez came to the United States when she was five years old, and if not for her father having his green card, Rodriguez believes she would be under the DACA program right now. Rodriguez said she fears that if President Donald Trump repeals the DACA program, thousands of those under the program would be affected. “If Trump uses an executive order to repeal DACA, Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers could literally come to their home and deport them,” she said. “This would include people with professional licenses, doctors, students getting their degrees.” Brunson voiced his support for the bill, saying, “We should support students because they pursue education, whether they are documented or undocumented.” Correas noted that DACA isn’t a solution,

but merely a temporary fix to a major problem. “DACA is a band-aid to a very large problem this country is facing,” Correas said. “If we take that band-aid off, people will start bleeding.” Juan Franco, vice chancellor of Student Affairs, said the university will always try to protect its students, but is also required to follow the law. The resolution passed with one senator choosing to abstain. The final bill introduced during the meeting requested ASUN support for the upcoming “Academics United-No Visas and Immigration Ban.” The event is sponsored by the Iranian Students Association and is meant to stand against Trump’s proposed executive order banning travel from seven Muslim-majority countries. The bill passed unanimously. NEWS@DAILYNEBRASKAN.COM



Museum of Shadows houses ghosts, haunted dolls Alli Dickey dn staff writer

A bell rings, a door is slammed shut and something scrapes across the floor. But nothing living is there. This is normal for Nate Raterman and his wife Kaleigh, owners of the Museum of Shadows in downtown Elmwood, Nebraska. Opened in September, the museum boasts over 1,000 artifacts tested by the couple and certified haunted. Thermal imaging photos and security camera footage on the museum’s website show strange figures and a curtain moving on its own. With dim lights and children singing “Ring Around The Rosie” in the background, the museum is guaranteed to give anyone the creeps. But the scariest parts are the real objects coming from places as far as Sri Lanka with, as Nate and Kaleigh would put it, “attached spirits.” There is a heavy and spine-chilling feeling around these objects as visitors read the plaques that explain the haunted background. A horned mask has been known to emulate drum beats and chanting. An oil lamp from Turkey has to be kept in a glass container because if touched, it is said to cause physical sickness. The most haunted artifact in the museum is an antique doll named Ayda who inspired a horror movie. She was originally found in a house a family had just bought. “The husband threw her away, and she went to a landfill 20 miles away from their home,” Kaleigh said. “And two years later she showed back up in the home without her eyes.” When they come into the museum, it’s common for the Ratermans to find her and the other artifacts in a different position. All the artifacts are donated from around the world from people who’ve had paranormal experiences with them. They then go through rigorous testing in a place Nate and Kaleigh call quarantine. “We don’t just take any random object that people bring in,” Kaleigh said. “We do investigate all of them before bringing them in just to make sure something is attached.” The museum also holds three haunted gurneys from three different time periods to honor the history of the building itself. Built almost 130 years ago, the building was home to a fancy suit store and then a paint store whose

The museum has been open since September. owner used the basement for embalming. “Actually before we brought any items into the museum, it already had activity in it,” Kaleigh said. “Nate and I were in here painting and remodeling, and we had paint cans slide across the floor about six inches.” Eric Cummings, a paranormal connoisseur who visited the museum recently, gave rave reviews. “I don’t know the words for it other than phenomenal,” Cummings said. “I walked in and immediately felt the energy that the building was emitting.” Cummings has been to many paranormal sites such as the Villisca Axe Murder house in Iowa and the Crescent Hotel in Eureka

Springs, Arkansas. “The Museum of Shadows, I think, is well above anything I’ve ever visited,” Cummings said. Soon, paranormal lovers will be able to watch Nate and Kaleigh investigate haunts on their upcoming T.V. show. This was not always the dream for Nate, who was a skeptic before his view changed in 2006 when an item bought at a garage sale set off a chain of strange events. “I made one Twitter post and from there it kind of took off,” he said. “Everybody started messaging me saying they had an item that had some sort of attachment.” Although he later found it wasn’t his ob-

ject but his house that was haunted, Nate was forever hooked and started his T.V. career and his own paranormal investigation team, Trip Paranormal. Kaleigh joined Trip Paranormal because of her lifelong relationship with sensing spirits. Just married in November, the two go on paranormal investigations and film their show. And there’s never a dull moment at the museum. “It’s super active,” she said. “There’s always something different every night. We’ve never had an evening where nothing has happened.” ARTS@DAILYNEBRASKAN.COM




ANONYMOUS: Virginity doesn’t have an age Anonymous Editor’s note: This column is part of an anonymous ongoing series regarding sexuality. I still remember it like it was yesterday. I was 17. I got up on a warm summer day and didn’t have to work. I texted a girl who I kind of knew but also wasn’t close with. It got flirty. She asked if I wanted to have sex. I said “yes” even though I was still a virgin. She was still a virgin too. That made me feel slightly better but nervous. On the drive over my arms were shaking. I could barely control my mom’s minivan speeding down the road. “This is it,” I told myself. “This is the moment.” I probably wished it happened sooner. But according the Center for Disease Control, the average age for virginity loss among men and women is about 17. . So, pretty average. I picked her up in a McDonald’s parking lot. (Classy, I know.) We drove in the minivan for what it seemed like hours before we found an empty parking lot without a lot of cars driving down it. (Again, I was a total womanizer when I was 17.) The magic moment was finally upon us. The build of all my teenage hormones had finally come to fruition. This was going to be the event that turned me into a man. ...It didn’t happen like that. I didn’t finish. Neither did my partner. It was an eternity of awkward positioning, sweaty bodies and brief, fleeting moments of pleasure. I didn’t feel any different after the encounter, I just smelled a little worse (it

was summer after all). I drove home, this time not swerving and speeding. I reflected on what just occurred. My main thought was that it wasn’t a big deal. I had sex; now my life goes on. I wasn’t instantly cool; my mind wasn’t blown or anything. I didn’t become one of the “cool kids” just because I got laid. I was slightly confused. Movies like “Superbad” and “American Pie” are all about losing that proverbial v-card. Jonah Hill’s character thinks that finally getting laid would improve his lower social status, while the boys in “American Pie” treat having sex as such a big deal that their whole senior year is comprised of trying to seduce woman. In both of these movies, being a virgin is something to be ashamed about. That itself is pretty messed up. Sex is awesome, but there’s no shame in not having it. Hollywood makes it end-all, be-all goal of teenage years, when it certainly isn’t. Instead of focusing on having sex for the first time, I should have focused on building meaningful relationships. Virginity shouldn’t matter in the grand scheme of things. Everyone’s sexuality and sex desire is different. I’m certainly not more popular or more attractive because I had sex at 17 instead of 15 or 45. Sex is great, but no one should feel pressured to lose it at a certain age. Age isn’t important and neither is losing your virginity. ARTS@DAILYNEBRASKAN.COM




Student fitness instructor finds love for teaching Grace Bradford dn staff writer

Mackenzie Burnham places a high value on fitness, especially when it comes to inspiring others to live a healthy lifestyle. For four semesters, Burnham has taught classes for the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s city Campus Recreation Center. Burnham, a junior education major at UNL, primarily focuses on strength. She teaches classes emphasizing total body tone, booty camp and hardcore training. Burnham said she decided to teach strength classes because of the confidence it gives participants. “When you’re strong, feel confident and are able to lift weights, I think that’s really im-

portant,” Burnham said. Growing up in Grand Island, Nebraska, Burnham said she enjoyed running alongside her parents and playing sports in high school. When Burnham came to college, she said she wanted keep the healthy lifestyle she was used to. As a freshman at UNL, Burnham took the first step to becoming an instructor by taking Group Exercise Instructor Prep - a two credit introductory course which focuses on leadership in group exercise. While taking the class, Burnham learned fitness routines, how to set up a fitness class and how to prepare for the group fitness certification test. After an audition and test, Burnham was hired to be part of the UNL fitness instructor community as a sophomore. Other fitness instructors in the community,

Burnham said, were helpful and gave advice as she began teaching classes. She said many of the skills she has learned from other instructors include learning how to be more engaged and comfortable with her participants. Sarah Lewis, the group fitness coordinator for Campus Recreation, said she is impressed with the wide variety of fitness instructors. “We have an awesome community of respect where people feel comfortable asking for help and sharing their ideas,” Lewis said. “Everyone brings their unique perspective to the table whether it’s their first or twentieth semester with Campus Rec.” Although passionate about fitness, Burnham said she is pursuing an education degree. But it wasn’t until Burnham began teaching classes and being the center of attention that she realized she wanted to become a teacher.

“You just get in that role, and it kind of takes over,” Burnham said. When Burnham is having a bad day and doesn’t feel like teaching a class, she said her mood instantly switches when she sees her participants improve. “It turns my day around,” Burnham said. Even if it means teaching individuals who have never stepped into a fitness class, she said she welcomes them and ensures they are comfortable. “If it’s the beginning of their fitness journey and this is their first class and they just come to my class, I want to make it a good experience, and I want them to want to come back or come to another fitness instructor’s class,” Burnham said.

DICKINSON: ‘Santa Clarita Diet’ shows gore, humor Kendall Dickinson dn staff writer

Warning: don’t eat while watching. “Santa Clarita Diet” is full of rotting flesh, unconventional humor and a hilariously foulmouthed Drew Barrymore. The new Netflix Original, “Santa Clarita Diet,” was released on Feb. 3. This series is about a perfect family from the suburbs of Santa Clarita, California. The parents, Sheila and Joel Hammond (Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant), are realtors who tagteam listings, along with their dry-humored teenage daughter, Abby (Live Hewson). They’re the typical suburban family, think “Desperate Housewives.” They are placed in between their nosy, uptight neighbors; the wives are played by Mary Elizabeth Ellis and Joy Osmanski, who are married to rivalry policemen Richard T. Jones and Ricardo Chavira. One family has a nerdy son, Eric (Skyler Gisondo) that befriends the Hammonds – you know the kind: no friends, freakishly high IQ and hates his absent step dad. Their lifestyle is so tediously normal, except for Sheila craving human flesh. Why she does, well, I’ll refrain from spoiling – as the ongoing mystery is part of what makes this series so entertaining. The first episode was iffy. I had no idea what was going on. In fact, through all ten episodes, I continuously exclaimed: “what the hell?” Was Barrymore a vampire? No, but she was acting in a television series, which I am convinced is equally as strange. Originally, I hated this, but by epi-

sode two, I decided this series was surprisingly amusing. Shortly after, “amusing” became an understatement. “Santa Clarita Diet” gets sweeter as the story progresses. This series is repulsive, jarring and unpredictable. It’s loaded with relevant pop culture references and cameos by people who play the funniest versions of themselves, some of which include Andy Richter, Nathan Fillion, Patton Oswalt, Thomas Lennon, Natalie Morales and Portia de Rossi. There may be more vomit and detached body parts than I would prefer. But hey, the writing is dark and offbeat, and the jokes don’t stop. What really drives the show is the relationship between Joel and Sheila. They were so blah until Barrymore’s character flipped her personality – she became so intense, holding nothing back – whereas Joel is desperate to be normal. It’s refreshing to see Barrymore in such an eccentric role, she’s actually quite the riot. However, Olyphant steals the show with his “why-me” humor. He’s relatable, and while viewers will care about him the most, they will also laugh at him with pity. The show began as I had envisioned it would, but everything quickly changed into a whirlwind of “what is this, really?” That’s certainly something to get excited about. This show is hilarious and unsettling. It’s as equally funny as it is gross. If “Dexter” were remade into a comedy, “Santa Clarita Diet” would be just that. ARTS@DAILYNEBRASKAN.COM

STAFF EDITORIAL: FROM PAGE 2 travel restriction equates to Roosevelt’s internment of Japanese Americans. We recognize the vast differences between the two presidential executive orders. We also recognize, however, that both illustrate the lengths the U.S. government will go when motivated by fear. University of Nebraska President Hank Bounds addressed NU students, faculty and staff in an email days after Trump signed the order, reflecting on an inscription on the Statue of Liberty: “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free…” Bounds reminded students of the “enor-

mous promise and privilege of living in a great country like ours.” The inscription, he said, is a reminder of why America – and its universities – have long been symbols of hope for people around the world. The University of Nebraska was a symbol of hope for 100 Nisei students in the 1940s who, without the opportunity of education, would have remained in internment camps until the war’s end. So why Nebraska? Andrew Wertheimer, a doctoral candidate at the University of Wisconsin-Madison who studies Japanese American History, specu-

lated the reasons: Perhaps NU needed the out-of-state tuition, $250 per semester. Or maybe bureaucratic tape led Nisei to the more isolated Midwest. Or the clergymen behind the cause saw a chance to Christianize. But Wertheimer, and the Nisei themselves, credit the humanitarian attitudes of a few: NU Chancellor Chauncey S. Boucher, registrar George Rosenlof, the Rev. Robert Drew and others. Said Wertheimer: “There is a lot in this story that should remind us about how easy it is to do the right thing...” The Daily Nebraskan has pulled the 2003

“Opportunity in Crisis” project from its archives not only as a reminder to the NU community and the world at large of the tragedies and injustices that can incur when we let fear overcome reason – but also of the need, echoing NU President Bounds, to be more inclusive, not less. “Universities should lead the way,” Bounds said. And they can. read

MAR AS: Women belong in law enforcement

Olivia Maras dn staff columnist

Close your eyes. think about what kind of person comes into your head when I say “police officer.” Got it? Chances are, you probably pictured a slightly intimidating, white, male officer. That is not an unusual first

thought. White male police officers are often the norm and have dominated the policing scene up until the last forty years . This stereotype has slowly started to change, however, and seeing women in uniform is becoming a more familiar sight. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 set this necessary change into motion, outlawing any discrimination in the workplace based on sex . However, even with this newly regulated protection against sexism, subtle and not so subtle discrimination has lingered in many fields of practice. Women have faced incredible obstacles, from simply getting a job to earning the respect of their male colleagues. This is especially relevant in the field of criminal justice and policing. Even today, gendered stereotypes of police officer demographics exist within the media and in communities across America. However, it’s 2017, and all areas of soci-

ety have taken numerous leaps forward. To test out the idea that equality has become more commonplace within policing, I interviewed Sergeant Kristy Beitler. Sergeant Beitler works for the University of NebraskaLincoln University Police Department as an Investigations Sergeant. When I first sat down with Beitler in a small yet neatly presented office, it was clear that she was willing and eager to talk about her many positive experiences with the UNLPD. I asked if she had ever experienced or noticed any lingering discrimination during her time as a police officer and she responded with a resounding no. “I became a police officer in 2003. I have been very lucky, I’ve been at the UNL Police Department that entire time, and I would never go anywhere else.” She stated with certainty. “I have never experienced that, I have been blessed to have an administration that

embraces differences and diversity and the support of a great campus community.” She continued to reiterate the fact that her time in the criminal justice field has been nothing but welcoming and the numerous opportunities that she has been able to experienced with the help of UNL Police have cemented a true and spirited enthusiasm for what she does. Often, the negative stereotypes often touted by the media can create the idea that everyone has experienced this type of discrimination. It was refreshing and enlightening to hear that in her case, the idea that women are treated differently in the workplace was not applicable. In college she worked as a 911 dispatcher and quickly fell in love with the idea of policing and the impact they were able to have on the community around them. Beitler applied


FAREWELL: Cell phones in class can be practical

Alexa Farewell dn staff columnist

I think it’s safe to say that most college and high school students have been caught using their cellphone during class. I can only hear a history teacher drone on about the Mayans, Incas and Aztecs for so long before I want to check my Twitter feed or send a text complaining about said lecture to a classmate. Chances are, this classmate is probably on their phone too. I’m not going to say being on my phone during class time was the right thing to do, but I do think there’s a time and place for cell phones in the classroom and at

school. Because let’s face it – students are probably going to sneak it into school regardless of any “bans”. Cellphones are now part of our normal ecosystem, especially as high school or college students. Personally, I have the Canvas, Blackboard and Nebraska apps on my phone. This allows me to check grades, send emails to professors/classmates, sign up for classes, pay my student bill and about anything else I need to do involving my enrollment here at UNL. A few weeks ago I even finished an assignment during a movie that was due that night (sometimes procrastination gets the best of me). The debate of whether the normalcy of cellphones is a good or bad thing is an argument for another day, but let’s just face the fact that cellphones are a big part of our world. USA Today tells us that “although schools have traditionally banned or limited cellphones in the classroom, 73 percent of Advanced Placement and National Writing Project teachers said their students use phones in the classroom to complete assignments .” Statistically speaking, most schools do have bans on cellphones. CommonSense Me-

dia, which studies the use of technology in children and young adults, have said 69 percent of schools don’t allow cellphones. Students who bring their phones to school anyway are at a whopping 63 percent. Obviously, banning a cell phone isn’t keeping it out of the school. Brian Begley, the principal of Millard North in Omaha, has decided to loosen the ban of cell phones in his high school. He wants to focus “less on the negative and more on the positive.” He’s allowed cellphone use at lunch and left the topic of having cellphones in the classroom up to each teacher. Principal Begley has a good point. If schools start to look at how we can positively use phones in the classroom instead of spending time and energy keeping them out, teachers may find many education tools in the palms of their students’ hands or back pocket of their jeans. The National Education Association released an article on how smart phones can remain positive in the classroom. When teachers are at the front of the room, they have little control over what the students are doing if they’re prompted to use their smart phones to do research on a classroom discussion.

This article suggests changing the dynamic of the classroom and getting rid of the “front of the room.” Teachers who walk around see less distraction from smart phones and deter distractions. Another positive is educational and useful apps. As I mentioned before, Canvas, Blackboard and UNL each offer an app that helps with classes, registration, etc. There are also tons of organizational apps out there. One app recommended for organization in the aforementioned NEA article was Remind101, which can be used by teachers and students to send a text reminder of assignments and tests. An example of how even the government is pushing for electronics is the ConnectED initiative presented by President Obama in 2013. This initiative has a goal of connecting at least 99 percent of American students to high speed internet/wireless. Only 20 percent of teachers said they felt the technology in their school was sufficient for teaching and education. That leaves the other 80 percent not having strong enough technology and In-




Oregonian wrestlers thrive in the Heartland Cody Nagel dn staff writer

The referee raised Collin Purinton’s arm, signifying a victory. As the redshirt freshman jogged off the mat and through the Devaney Center’s tunnel, he passed sophomore teammate Tyler Berger, who wrestles next. Words were not exchanged between the two Nebraska wrestlers. They don’t need to be. They know the other will do what he needs to win the match. The two have watched the other wrestle since high school - over 1,500 miles away in northwest Oregon. It was there the two began a friendship that has grown each year since their arrival in Lincoln.

In the fall of 2015, Purinton began his first year at Nebraska. Berger said he saw Purinton in the practice facility during one of the first weeks Purinton was on campus. He recalled seeing Purinton running on the treadmill wearing an elevation mask. “That’s when I was like, ‘alright, this guy’s

Berger and Purinton said they haven’t had any arguments or gotten sick of each other while living in the same house. “After being around somebody for so long, I mean, it’s going to happen, but I feel like there hasn’t really been ‘I’m sick of you,’” Purinton said. Having similar routines and an identical

*** In Oregon, Berger and Purinton wrestled in the same high school division (4A) during the 2013-14 season. Berger had transferred from Hermiston High School to Crook County High School in Prineville, Oregon for his senior season. Purinton wrestled for Banks High School, three hours northwest of Prineville near Portland, from 2011- 2015. They never wrestled against each other Berger was always heavier than Purinton - or had a conversation, but being big names in Oregon, they knew of each other. Berger was a four-time state champion. He compiled a career record of 198-3. Purinton won two state titles, one his sophomore season at 106 pounds, while Berger was at Hermiston, and the second his senior season at 132 pounds, during Berger’s freshman season at UNL. Having a state title - regardless of how many - Berger and Purinton shared a mutual respect for each other throughout their high school careers. As a freshman at Nebraska, Berger was Purinton’s host during his visit at Nebraska in 2014. This was the first time the two talked. Berger showed Purinton what stood out to him from when he was on his visit: the team atmosphere; something Berger feels is the top selling point at Nebraska. “We’re not just friends inside the wrestling room,” Berger said. “We all hang out outside the wrestling room and there’s no cliques. Everybody just meshes.”

Being in a new place is hard for anyone, especially 24 hours away from home. For Purinton, having someone on the team he knew and related to made it easier. “I just kind of felt like I already fit in,” Purinton said. “If I ever needed anything, I could ask him. He’s been there for me.” Berger let Purinton stay at his house while the dorms were closed over Christmas break last season. This year, they are roommates at a house in central Lincoln along with sophomore wrestler Jay Sornson.

focus have helped prevent arguments. Berger and Purinton are both on varsity. They go to bed early and have specific diets to manage their weight. Berger said they keep each other accountable, making sure one person isn’t going too hard or doing things that can become distractions. “Our whole house is kinda focused on wrestling right now,” Berger said. “And then offseason, our schedules may separate, but for right now we’re all kind of one goal.” Berger said the house is pretty boring during the season. They relax and let their bodies recover by watching a lot of T.V. This past Super Bowl Sunday, the house hosted a watch

party for the game. Growing up in Oregon, surrounded by mountains, trees and water, Berger and Purinton share a common interest of being outside. Berger said Nebraska is too flat, there’s not a whole lot to do. Berger said he would spend a lot of time on the Columbia River when he was living in Oregon. Purinton, who grew up on a tree farm, simply enjoyed being outside, usually on a golf course. There are not a lot of wrestlers that leave the state of Oregon and wrestle in college, especially at the highest level. Berger and Purinton are two of four former Oregon high school wrestlers currently competing in the Big Ten. The other two are Zac Brunson of Illinois, who went to high school in Eugene and Eleazar DeLuca of Rutgers, who went to high school in Talent. “I think it’s cool to kind of put our hometowns on the map,” Berger said. “Even though Oregon’s not a wrestling state.” Purinton’s first season and a half at Nebraska are similar to those of Berger’s. Berger had a record of 29-5 during his redshirt season in 2014-15, placing in six open tournaments. Purinton had a record of 24-6 during his redshirt season in 2015-16, placing in three open tournaments. Berger and Purinton each moved up one weight class for their redshirt-freshman seasons and first year as starters. Berger moved from 149 pounds to 157, and Purinton moved to 149 after wrestling the first two open tournaments at 141. One year ago on Feb. 9, 2016, as a redshirt freshman, Berger had a record of 17-9. So far this season, Purinton has a record of 12-10. Both of the wrestlers also had a five-match losing streak midway through their respective redshirt-freshman seasons. Berger went on to place seventh at the Big Ten Championships and fell one win shy of All-American status at the NCAA Championships. The outcome for the rest of Purinton’s redshirt-freshman season is unknown. For now, Purinton said it’s about trusting the process and listening to the encouragement his friend and teammate has to offer. SPORTS@DAILYNEBRASKAN.COM




Coach’s passion, knowledge inspires Huskers Zach Markon dn staff writer

Before she was the head softball coach at Nebraska, Rhonda Revelle had already made her mark on Nebraska athletics as a student. Revelle played many sports growing up, but softball was always her passion, likely stemming from her dad’s involvement in the sport. “My dad played fastpitch softball, so I was around it from a very small age,” she said. “I was the team’s bat girl when I was just eight years old, so I have played it my whole life. I played other sports too, but softball was always my favorite.” Revelle followed that passion throughout her childhood. When the first NCAA-sanctioned softball College World Series took place in 1982, Revelle was representing the Huskers in that inaugural series. As an athlete, Revelle’s name was put into the books as Nebraska’s single-season saves record holder when she had seven saves in her 1983 season. Although that record has since been surpassed, she still holds the No. 10 spot on the list. As a pitcher, her statistics spoke loudly.

She remains the Nebraska softball pitcher with the ninth-best earned run average over the course of her career. Revelle’s final career ERA was 1.60. Coaching for the Huskers was always a dream for Revelle, something she doesn’t take for granted now that she’s living it. “When I was coaching before I was at Nebraska, I always thought that it was really special to do something you love and get paid for it,” she said. “I had said that getting to coach at Nebraska would be a dream come true, but I didn’t think that an opportunity like that would ever actually happen, let alone just a few years after I said it.” Eight years after she graduated, Revelle got her opportunity. Nebraska needed a head softball coach and just the person they needed: a high-energy coach with a passion for the game who could boost the Huskers to the elite level that the program was at when Revelle was a student. Her upbringing played a big role in her softball interest as an athlete and in giving her some unique insight into the coaching experience. “When I was growing up, my dad coached my softball team,” Revelle said. “I was always thinking like a coach because I lived with one.” Hired by Barbara Hibner, the women’s

jessie addleman | dn

athletic director at the time, Revelle took her post as the softball head coach in 1993. She is now in her 25th season with the Huskers, and with 913 wins under her belt, she is the winningest coach, male or female, in the history of Nebraska athletics. In 2010, Revelle received the highest honor reserved for collegiate softball coaches when she was inducted into the National Fastpitch Coaches Association Hall of Fame. Despite her extensive array of accolades, Revelle says her greatest achievement as a coach occurs off the field. “I really enjoy helping and seeing these young people grow up,” she said. “When all of a sudden they hit a new level of growth, whether it’s athletically, academically or in their personal lives, I think those are really the greatest achievements. The greatest accomplishment is when you feel like you’ve had a hand in that success, whether it’s giving advice, being tough on them at times, or giving them support when they’re having a rough time.” Her love for her athletes is also a big driver for Revelle to keep coaching every year. “I love being around young people,” she said. “I think it keeps you young, the whole team working towards goals and growing together. I’m competitive, and I want to win. Getting a group of young women to work to-

wards [a] common goal, and then achieve that goal – those are the accomplishments that keep you wanting more.” While she has accomplished an incredible amount as a coach, there’s one thing Revelle still wants to do. “I’d be lying to you if I didn’t say I’d love to get that taste of winning your last game of the season, dogpile, and win a national championship. That’s always been a goal of mine as a player and an athlete. That would be amazing to experience.” Revelle was quick to add: “But that’s not what I want to define my time here in Nebraska, it’s much more about the people. I really just love the opportunities that this job presents.” Her players have no trouble showing their appreciation for their coach, either. Summing up the impact of Coach Revelle, senior Lotte Sjulin had nothing but good things to say. “Coach Revelle is a huge inspiration to me,” she said. “She is truly a master of her craft, yet works harder and harder every day to find things she wants to improve on,” Sjulin said.





Huskers’ R&R bodes well for Badgers preparation Matt Hardesty dn staff writer

The Nebraska men’s basketball team (1013, 4-7) welcomes No. 7 Wisconsin (20-3, 9-1) to Pinnacle Bank Arena on Thursday. NU attempts to snap its two game losing streak. This is Nebraska’s only game in a nine day stretch, something both coach Tim Miles and sophomore forward Michael Jacobson think could help them. “It is good to get a little bit of a break here,” Jacobson said. “I think it’s also good just to break the rhythm. It’s a big help for us.” Sophomore forward Ed Morrow has missed Nebraska’s last seven games but has started practicing again. He will be a game-time decision on Thursday night. Fellow sophomore, guard Glynn Watson Jr. has also been battling a groin injury but is expected to play through it. Miles has meet with each player individually this week, thanks to the extra time off and so many players missing practices with injuries. He believes it has been beneficial to the team. “I like to play,” Miles said. “[Jacobson]’s right. There’s a whole bunch of guys that aren’t 100 percent, but we’re just kind of feeling our way through it.” Wisconsin is the sixth ranked opponent Nebraska plays this year, and the third one from the top 10. Nebraska is currently 2-3 against ranked opponents and 1-1 at home against them. Nebraska has not beaten a top 10-ranked team since 2014, when it upset No. 9 Wisconsin 77-68 on senior night. The Badgers have lost just three times this season, all against ranked opponents. Wisconsin lost its second game of the season at Creighton by 12, North Carolina beat them by 15 in the Maui Invitational Championship and Purdue beat them by 11 last month. Wisconsin has won seven straight games since the loss to Purdue. “We expect a really good team,” Jacobson said. “They know how to win, they know how to get it done, and they are obviously rolling right now.” In Wisconsin’s last game, it was able to hold on late for a 65-60 win over Indiana on Sunday afternoon. One hour later, Nebraska lost 81-70 at Iowa. Wisconsin center Ethan Happ is not only one of the best players in the conference, but the nation. He has finished with over 20 points in three of Wisconsin’s last six games, including a 32- point outing in a win over Rutgers in January. He is Wisconsin’s only nonsenior starter. Jacobson is tasked with guarding Happ as

You’ve got to prepare for a little bit of everything.” Tshimanga has been a bright spot in conference play during Nebraska’s struggles. The freshman from Montreal, Quebec, scored a career-high 15 points last week against Michigan State and followed it up with 10 points and 8 rebounds at Iowa. “I think he’s done nicely in the Big Ten,” Miles said of Tshimanga. “There’s not a lot of freshmen that come out and get better and better and start to demand a double team. I think he’s hitting his stride.” In the backcourt, Watson will try to bounce

back from a poor outing at Iowa, where he finished with three points on 0-4 shooting. He is tasked with defending Wisconsin senior point guard Bronson Koenig, who averages 14 points per game and shoots 39 percent from three point range. Shooting guard Tai Webster also has his hands full with guard Zak Showalter, a senior from Germantown, WI, who is shooting 49 percent from the field. Wisconsin also features preseason Big Ten Player of the Year pick Nigel Hayes, who has seen his point total decrease as well as his minutes per game in his senior year, but still averages 13 points and six rebounds per game. These teams last met in March of last season in the Big Ten Tournament. The Huskers

rode strong performances from former Shavon Shields and Watson to a 70-58 victory. Happ led the Badgers with 17 points, and all five of their starters from that game remain on Wisconsin’s roster. “I think we just try to take it one game at a time,” Jacobson said. “You’ve just got to look at each individual opponent as different. If we did happen to win tomorrow, it would be huge for our season.” The game tips off at 8 p.m. and can be seen on the Big Ten Network. “You have to beat Wisconsin,” Miles said. “You don’t have to beat everybody. If you look at the recipe for winning, the first thing you do is eliminate losing. If you can just eliminate losing you can win a whole bunch of games.” SPORTS@DAILYNEBRASKAN.COM




to be a Community Service Officer at UNL shortly after her dispatching job, and has stayed within the organization since then. According to the department, there are a total of 35 commissioned officers on the team not including civilian positions, five of these positions are held by women. While the number of commissioned police officers who are women is surprisingly low, it is still obvious that UNL Police is an inclusive and welcoming environment for women interested in pursuing a career within criminal justice. I asked her if she had any advice for women and girls entering the police and criminal justice field, and her response was simple: “My advice would be to follow your heart. Law enforcement is a rewarding career. It is something I would recommend to anybody that has the passion to help, to serve, to do.” This recommendation is beneficial to anyone seeking a career that gives back, showing that some stereotypes can be overcome by perseverance and passion. As long as one has the drive and commitment to succeed in law enforcement, no matter what gender they are, it is a field that gives back. Sergeant Beitler has had no regrets with the career path she chose, and her positivity and glowing review of the department are a welcome bright spot of equality

in a decidedly unequal world. The future is bright for even more equality within law enforcement, as many departments across America are actively recruiting more women. The Lincoln Police force has held an interest in embracing more diversity within gender in their recruitment process, along with departments as far as the St. Paul department in Minnesota. It even goes as far as the UN, as they strive to “increase the number of female police officers deployed” with their police force. These campaigns prove to the communities they serve and protect that the diversity of their communities is reflected in their police force. As for the future of the small but impactful campus police force, Sergeant Beitler wants to see the UNL Police Department continue to focus on their mission of diversity and inclusiveness, and continue to be attentive to the needs of different groups. As she said, “We can always be better, and we can always improve.” OLIVIA MARAS IS A FRESHMAN CRIMINAL JUSTICE MAJOR, REACH HER AT OPINION@DAILYNEBRASKAN.COM OR @DNOPINION.

FAREWELL: FROM PAGE 10 ternet to teach their lessons effectively. Although I believe cellphones have their place in the classroom, one of the biggest negatives of allowing them in a school is cheating. About two-thirds of students interviewed by CommonSense Media said they used their phones to cheat in one way or another. The most common way of cheating was to have notes on their phone to use during a quiz or test. Other ways of cheating were texting a friend one of the questions during a test, searching the Internet for answers and taking pictures of a quiz someone

might be taking later. So maybe my tweeting during a history lecture wasn’t the best way to use a cellphone in the classroom, but there is a time and a place. So get out your phone and download the best apps for your education and find the best balance between school work and cellphone time.
