Weinberg dean to UW-Madison By REBECCA SAVRANSKY daily senior staffer @beccasavransky

Sarah Mangelsdorf, dean of Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences, was named provost and vice chancellor for academic affairs for the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Mangelsdorf will be leaving Northwestern in August to assume the position. She has worked at NU for six years, also serving as a professor in the department of psychology. She sent a note to her colleagues Thursday afternoon announcing her departure from the University. “Although I am excited about the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead for me, I am also deeply saddened to be leaving Northwestern, and particularly Weinberg College,” she wrote. “It has been a great pleasure to work with all of you over the course of the last six years. I am very thankful for everything that all of you do to make Weinberg College the best place it can be, and I know that you will continue that great work in the years to come.” The University of WisconsinMadison released a statement Thursday announcing Mangelsdorf ’s new

position. In the letter, UW chancellor Rebecca Blank noted several of Mangelsdorf ’s accomplishments. “Throughout her career, she has experienced success at four Big Ten institutions, both public and private,” Blank said in a university statement. “She is both a top-ranked professor and a first-class administrator.” Mangelsdorf said after I found researching that people I the positalked to had t ion, she had received uniformly positive enthusiastic feedback about Unithings to say versity of about (UWWisconsinMadison).

ASG to sponsor ‘hackathon’ By JORDAN HARRISON

the daily northwestern @medilljordan

Associated Student Government will host a 24-hour competition running from April 25 to 26 called ‘RedesigNU: hackathon,’ which will give undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to reinvent Northwestern Web services including Caesar and Wildcat Connection. “It’s really about creating the next student service,” said McCormick sophomore Christina Kim, an ASG member on the academic and services committees. “If you think that there’s something missing from your student experience and you think you can create it, we want to see that.” Registration for RedesigNU will be open until April 24 and the actual coding will take place from 5:30 p.m. on April 25 to 6:30 p.m. on April 26. Kim said after gaging student interest, she is expecting about 100 entries. Registration will be capped at about 100 people and programmers can compete individually or in teams of up to six people, she said. “During sign-in, we’ll give an opportunity for unmatched members, if they want to create a team, to form a team,” she said. Participants will have the option to either recreate existing services or create entirely new programs, said Weinberg freshman and ASG senator Steven Bennett. “It’s more like redesigning the Northwestern student experience in

City to receive federal funding for bike paths

Evanston will receive nearly $1.5 million in federal funding for a bike path through Northwestern’s campus along Sheridan Road, Gov. Pat Quinn announced Saturday. The bike path will start on North Campus at Lincoln Street and will run the length of Sheridan Road and Chicago Avenue until it reaches Davis Street. It will connect to existing bike paths on Davis and Church streets. The city has been granted $1,492,400 for the project. Evanston is among more than 60 communities in Illinois that have been awarded grants for community transportation projects. In total, more than $50 million statewide will be invested in bike paths, walking trails and other projects as part of the initiative, which the governor’s office says will create more than 400 jobs. “These projects will support hundreds of jobs while preserving our heritage, beautifying communities and creating opportunities for pedestrians, bicyclists and others across Illinois,” Quinn said in a news release. “The projects will help improve the quality of life for everyone, and I commend Senator (Richard) Durbin (D-Ill.) and Illinois’ congressional delegation for fighting for this important community funding.” The funding was allotted as part of the Illinois Transportation Enhancement Program, which funds up to 80 percent of the community transportation projects it selects based on applications.

Kim said students have the insight needed to make and improve these programs. “We feel like there’s a lot of improvements that could be made to services or services that don’t even exist yet,” Kim said. “Students know what they need.” Programmers will also have access to live data from Caesar class search and Wildcat Connection through an application programming interface in order to help design and test their code, Bennett said. “I know some people are interested in creating a new way to look for classes,” Kim said. “That’s totally possible with this.” Neal Sales-Griffin (SESP ‘09), the co-founder and CEO of programming school The Starter League and a former ASG president, will be one of five judges for the competition.

PedalPub halts move to Evanston By KELLY GONSALVES

daily senior staffer @kellyagonsalves

After a three-year licensing dispute with Chicago, mobile bar company PedalPub has pulled out of Illinois altogether, which includes ending negotiations for an Evanston location. Currently operating in 29 locations nationwide, PedalPub manufactures pedal-powered mobile bars and offers bar tours on the 16-passenger bikes. Last summer, the company expressed interest in creating an Evanston branch and began reaching out to city officials, but PedalPub dropped the negotiations after the termination of its Chicago branch, which had been in constant conflict with Chicago’s Department of Business Affairs and Consumer Protection. “We really had our hearts set on Chicago. I guess the way we were looking at it is we would move to Evanston … if we had some hope of getting back to Chicago someday,” said PedalPub joint founder and managing partner Al Boyce. “We would basically create an expansion in Evanston.” Elaine Kemna-Irish, executive director of the Evanston Chamber of Commerce, said she last spoke with PedalPub’s Chicago city manager Matt Graham in July 2013. She said

Police Blotter City man punched in the face near Gigio’s Pizzeria

An Evanston resident was punched in the face Wednesday after a dispute near a pizza place in downtown Evanston. The incident took place near Gigio’s Pizzeria, 1001 Davis St., on Wednesday evening at about 9:40 p.m. Two men were observed displaying gang signs with their hands before they attacked the Evanston man, Evanston Police

she provided representatives from company with maps and ideas for possible tour routes, connected them with the city’s parking department and discussed their options for obtaining proper licensing and navigating Evanston’s parking regulations. “I put them in my prospects because I thought at some point they might be coming back,” Kemna-Irish said. “I did even look into how they could possibly be in Evanston, but I don’t know what happened after that.” Boyce said the people of Evanston were “very friendly to us,” but PedalPub’s principle focus was on solidifying its presence in Chicago. He said PedalPub could not “satisfy” the department’s license requirements and therefore could not acquire an appropriate license that would allow it to operate in Chicago, which he described as “very unfriendly to our small business.” “Finally we said, yeah, we gotta get out of here,” Boyce said. After losing the licensing dispute and permanently abandoning the prospect of operating in Chicago, PedalPub also pulled out of Evanston and the rest of Illinois. Boyce said the Evanston expansion no longer made sense without the hope of a Chicago location. “Personally I think we’d do great in Evanston,” Boyce said. “I think it was going along swimmingly in Evanston. We just made a business decision to pull out.” Cmdr. Jay Parrott said. The dispute may be gang-related, Parrott added. Police responded to the incident and found the two men several blocks away from the pizza place. The injured man, 22, refused police services and medical attention. It does not appear that the man is in a gang, Parrott said. There will be no follow-up investigations in this case.

PEDAL YOUR WARES After considering a move to Evanston, mobile bar company PedalPub has pulled out of Illinois altogether. The Minneapolis-based company hosts bike-powered bar tours.

But Boyce said he is in contact with the new Chicago Business Affairs and Consumer Protection Department commissioner Maria Guerra Lapacek, whom he believes seems more welcoming to PedalPub. If they are able to get a license under this new director, he said an Evanston location could possibly be a future extension.

Ajith, Van Atta reflect on year of ASG leadership By REBECCA SAVRANSKY daily senior staffer @beccasavransky

Even as Associated Student Government president Ani Ajith and executive vice president Alex Van Atta are transitioning out of their current leadership positions, allowing for a new team to take on their roles, they said their commitment to serving Northwestern and passion for NU will not change just because their term is over. “We’re definitely not done yet,” Ajith said. “People keep asking us if we’re checked out because we’re about to transition out, and that doesn’t mesh well with the rest of our experience. There is no checking out of being passionate about improving the school.” The pair said after being sworn into office last year, they had several proposed initiatives and wanted to ensure they remained consistent with their campaign slogan, “linking perspectives.” In an effort to more effectively serve the student body, they said they partnered and collaborated with several groups across campus to incorporate student opinion into ASG discussions, consistently met with the members of the administration and made sure to have consistent follow-through with their promises. “I think a lot of this year has revolved around the ‘ACE concept,’ making sure that ASG is accessible, consistent and engaging in everything that we do,��� Van Atta said. “I think that stems from just making sure that ASG is an ally and a partner.” The pair noted several significant accomplishments they have made throughout the year, including improving shuttles, addressing mental health, creating greater transparency within ASG and increasing the amount of money in the Senate Project Pool, an initiative that improves the chances for students to receive the funding they need and gives Senate more leeway in their allotment. They said they also added several priorities to their agenda throughout the year in response to student needs including sexual assault prevention and support for low income students. “As different issues come to forefront of campus discussions, we need to be ready to kind of change

our game plan and stay relevant as things change,” Van Atta said. The pair also emphasized the importance of the campus-wide survey sent out in the beginning of the year. They said the survey, which received about 2,500 student responses, allowed them to make the organization significantly more data-based, relying more on student feedback rather than making decisions internally. Ajith added that this year’s survey was “unprecedented in scope and size.” It also served as the impetus for several projects the group either fulfilled or laid the groundwork for throughout this year. The pair said, however, several of their accomplishments were more “behind the scenes.” They said they attempted to take on projects that will span the next several years in an effort to create a long-term vision for the University, noting there are limitations in what can be accomplished within a single year.

Ajith said more than focusing on small initiatives, the team looked at “things that are baked into the DNA of Northwestern,” and the structural issues that really make a difference. “What we have been looking into this year and saying ‘why are student groups the way they are at Northwestern, why is mental health the way it is at Northwestern and can we tie it back to the quarter system, can we tie it back to the way we structure our schools and structure our majors and how many courses we’re supposed to take,” Ajith said. Ajith said over the next few years, NU will see new construction initiatives and substantial increases in the amount of funds and capital, as could be seen with the launch of the “We Will” capital campaign. Ajith said through the pair’s leadership, ASG was redesigned to serve as more of a “student union concept,” in order to prepare the Senate for their involvement in major decisions over the next five to ten years.

“What it is now and what it will be is a student advocacy body that’s also able to provide services, that’s also able to provide resources, that is very much a support system for students on campus,” Ajith said. He added that he had two main goals through the year, including “trying at every single moment to do things to the utmost and do things right,” and to think in the long term, both of which he said the pair did successfully. Ajith and Van Atta both said the experience as a whole taught them a great deal about leadership and gave them important tools they would be able to use throughout their lives. ASG academics vice president Sofia Sami, a Weinberg senior, said after closely working with Ajith and Van Atta over the past year, she admired their constant communication with the University, which allowed for the formation of more comprehensive platforms within ASG. “They’ve also done a really good job with communicating to other staff and administrators on campus and being a very constant source of feedback,” Sami said. “That’s why we kind of see an increased utilization of ASG across the school in many ways because they’ve been so reliable.” Sami said the team really did attempt to “link perspectives,” and served as dependable leaders for the student body. She said their support allowed several initiatives she had this year to grow and become more beneficial as a whole. Van Atta, who will serve as the ASG student groups vice president next year, said ASG has been a very influential part of his life over the past few years, and he is looking forward to continuing to serve the student body and community as a whole. “If you stop what you’re doing just because you don’t have the position, then you probably shouldn’t have had the position in the first place,” Van Atta said. “Just because we won’t be president and vice president doesn’t mean that we’ll stop caring about Northwestern or stop caring about getting things to happen. We still deeply care about this school and we will make sure that the projects that we were so passionate about continue even when we’re graduated.” rebeccasavransky2015@u.northwestern.edu

Conference attracts discussion on drug policy By HAYLEY GLATTER

daily senior staffer @heyhay94

Student activists from across the Midwest came to Northwestern on Saturday to hear several speakers and engage in discussions regarding different aspects of U.S. drug policy. NU’s chapter of Students for Sensible Drug Policy organized this year’s Midwest Regional SSDP Conference. The daylong event included panels, speakers and breakout sessions for attendees to learn about the War on Drugs and to discuss activities SSDP chapters are engaging in across the country. The event also provided the opportunity for activists to network and talk about using SSDP in professional settings. Representatives from the University of Michigan and Roosevelt University, among other schools, attended. Both schools have also hosted the conference in recent years. NU SSDP co-founder and former co-president Frances Fu said her experiences at the conferences marked turning points in her work with SSDP. “The one at Roosevelt my freshman year was the reason I wanted to start SSDP at Northwestern,� the SESP junior said. “All the students there, all the conference attendees, were super professional. They

dressed well. There’s always this stereotype of what a marijuana legalization advocate looks like and everyone there was so articulate, so passionate.� Speakers from Law Enforcement Against Prohibition, Chicago Legal Advocacy for Incarcerated Mothers and the Illinois Consortium on Drug Policy gave presentations throughout the day. Opening speaker Ryan Harmon, a former Indiana police officer who spent much of his career fighting corruption, kicked off the conference by talking about his experiences with the double standards that permeate the police force. “What we need in government is to end the hypocrisy,� said Harmon, a presenter from LEAP. “You’re going to have (officers) that have experimented with all kinds of things. I used marijuana in college. There were guys that were polishing their boots that used marijuana. They used cocaine. They stole things. They did all kinds of things. Because why? Because we’re human beings. We have fallacies.� Harmon continued to discuss the negative impact the War on Drugs has had on communities. He added that those in power need to reframe the way they see the issue. After using his position as a police officer to crack down on drugs, Harmon’s perspective on the War on Drugs resonated with attendees. “It’s just really interesting to see the perspectives of the people that have fought the War on Drugs for a whole career and now they’re finally feeling

like they’re able to come out and speak out against it because they’ve seen first hand the violence that it brings,� said Reid Murdoch, a University of Michigan law student who attended the conference. Later in the day, breakout sessions were held on topics varying from opportunities in drug policy to medical marijuana in the Midwest. Fu said she hoped the event would motivate attendees and bring the regional SSDP community together.

“It’s not just one conference alone that prompts a change in drug policy reform, but especially I think having conferences like these at higher education institutions is really important,� Fu said. “Because it’s people like us at Northwestern or other colleges who are going to take that information and make a difference and do something with it in the future.� hayleyglatter2016@u.northwestern.edu

City examines Chicago-Main transportation ideas By ciara mccarthy

daily senior staffer @mccarthy_ciara

City officials got a first look Wednesday at a report on a potential upgrade to the public transportation stations near the intersection of Main Street and Chicago Avenue. In 2013, Evanston and the Regional Transportation Authority began a study to investigate a transitoriented development project at the Chicago Transit Authority and Metra stations on Main Street, which would increase accessibility to the stations and contribute to the livability of the neighborhood. On Wednesday, Damir Latinovic, a city employee in the

planning and zoning division, presented the final study to Evanston’s plan commission. “As part of this study, the focus then sort of shifted a little bit towards how the existing train stations ‌ can be improved to overall improve the vitality of the area, increase the ridership numbers and just become an incubator of activity for commercial businesses and for residential developments,â€? Latinovic said Wednesday. The study’s findings highlight both short-term and long-term changes to the station area, all of which would make public transport more accessible. Some of the more significant changes include making the entrance to the CTA station Americans with Disabilities Act-accessible, expanding the CTA platform to accommodate more train cars and creating

a walkway underneath the CTA embankment to connect the two stations. Evanston and the RTA decided to investigate the opportunities for transit-oriented development because of the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unique attributes. Main Street is one of just three locations in the Chicago area in which the CTA and Metra stations are located in close proximity to each other. In addition, the Main Street stations have seen increased ridership in recent years, encouraging officials to make transferring between the transportation systems easier. The Main Street CTA station saw a 2 percent increase in weekday ridership in 2013 compared to 2012. The Metra station saw a 13 percent increase from 2002 to 2006. The consulting firm Parsons Brinckerhoff was

contracted to undertake the study to research ways to identify opportunities for public space and improve the multi-modal connectivity of the station areas. Also in consideration was the creation of an elevated bicycle and pedestrian path between the Metra and CTA corridors. It now looks unlikely that such a path would be included in the projectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s potential plans. â&#x20AC;&#x153;During the study it was determined that this would be very costly, so not a lot of time was spent on this portion of that,â&#x20AC;?

The Block Museum of Art kicked off a two-weekend-long series of film screenings Thursday with the works of a prominent Moroccan director. Moumen Smihi, born in Tangier, has directed and written a number of films. In addition to the film screenings, he will be at Northwestern during the week to speak with students and faculty about his work. The film series, titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Moroccan Chronicles: The Films of Moumen Smihi,â&#x20AC;? was organized by the Middle East and North African studies program and the cinema in the Block Museum. The event, spread out over the evenings of April 10-11 and April 17-18, will feature seven of Smihiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s films from the past 40 years. Preparation for the event started last summer, said Brian Edwards, professor and director of the MENA

program. Smihiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s films have been shown at international film festivals, including The Cannes International Film Festival and The Marrakech International Film Festival. Some of his films have been around for decades, but now feature English subtitles as a new addition. Edwards worked with Mimi Brody, curator of the Block Cinema program, and Peter Limbrick, professor of Film and Digital Media at the University of California, Santa Cruz, to bring Smihi and his films to NU. Smihi currently splits his time between living in Paris and Tangier. He is known for his portrayal of the post-colonial themes of race, gender and tradition in Morocco. He is considered a prominent figure of â&#x20AC;&#x153;New Arab Cinemaâ&#x20AC;? and often uses nonprofessional actors in his work. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(Smihi) works in a way that is parallel to those in his generation,â&#x20AC;? Limbrick said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so striking about his work is this willingness to experiment with

everything at his disposal. â&#x20AC;Ś His films are radically international. The intimacy between the character and the actor is extremely palpable in these films.â&#x20AC;? The first screening event included the 1971 film â&#x20AC;&#x153;Si Moh, pas de chanceâ&#x20AC;? (â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Unlucky Manâ&#x20AC;?), a study of European immigrant workers told through a discouraged man. It was followed by 1975â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;El Cherguiâ&#x20AC;? (â&#x20AC;&#x153;The East Windâ&#x20AC;?), which is about a woman who resorts to magical and religious practices in order to prevent her husband from taking a second wife. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are both beautiful and sophisticated,â&#x20AC;? Edwards said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They engage with a variety of global cinemas and overwhelm you with beauty. There are challenging scenes, but they are fascinating in the ways in which they engage with the city of Tangier.â&#x20AC;? A question-and-answer session with Smihi, Edwards and Limbrick followed the screenings, in which Smihi discussed his artistic process and his motives behind making his films. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The films are related to the social history of

Smihi will speak on Monday as part of â&#x20AC;&#x153;MENA Mondaysâ&#x20AC;? and on Tuesday through an event co-organized by MENA, the French and Italian department and the French Interdisciplinary Group. Bienen and Weinberg freshman Anna Vosbigian said she enjoyed seeing one of his films, noting it was unique to anything she had ever seen before. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Block Cinema provides a fantastic opportunity to watch little-seen films from underrepresented areas of the world in terms of filmmaking,â&#x20AC;? Vosbigian said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d never seen a film like this, so the story and the way the film was constructed were both fascinating.â&#x20AC;? The series continues Thursday and Friday with double features from later in Smihiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s career.

Protein Bar was slotted to replace athletic apparel store Lululemon Athletica, which closed its doors in August 2013. City Council approved a special use permit for the restaurant in September 2013, allowing the business to start planning its move into the space at 1622 Sherman Ave. However, the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Economic Development manager Johanna Nyden said Protein

Bar notified the city in March that it is halting its efforts to open in Evanston. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our understanding is theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not moving forward at this point,â&#x20AC;? she said. Nyden said the restaurant told the city it was not able to come to terms on a sublease agreement with Lululemon and would be moving on to look at other places. Nyden said she does not think it will be

difficult to find another business to move into the vacant space. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We get a number of inquiries regularly,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m confident it will get filled.â&#x20AC;? Protein Bar currently has locations in Washington, D.C. and Colorado, as well as 11 restaurants in Chicago and its suburbs.

Taking risks on blind faith creates deep connections Josh Walfish

Daily columnist

Thursday I walked into a room with eight strangers and spilled my darkest secrets. The only thing we now know about each other is our name, our year and whatever it is we decide to tell one another. The bond we have is unique and allows us to have open and honest conversations with one another. This is not a description of one of my discussion sections, rather an explanation of the first day of group therapy. I began this treatment in the fall and I’ve learned more about myself than anything else I could have imagined. The reason group therapy is so effective is a little secret that makes society fearful — blind faith. From the day we’re born, our parents and teachers preach for us not to talk to strangers. The idea of having a conversation with someone we don’t know anything about is frightening for many people. The concept of trusting someone whom you’ve just met with your deepest insecurities takes it to another level of fear. Yet for 90 minutes every week for the remainder of the quarter I will sit in a room with the same eight people and talk about our anxieties. We try to understand one another and give our best feedback in order to help the person. This approach is a far cry from my

expectations when I came to Evanston just four years ago. I came to Northwestern determined to only let a select few know about my past and all the prob-

were too big for them. Don’t get me wrong, I did make some great friends with this approach, but those relationships took a lot of time to develop. The thing about blind faith that fascinates me

lems I face on a daily basis. I wanted to protect myself more than I did in high school and as such was going to put people through a rigorous test of trust before I divulged even a single secret of mine. Yet, that approach resulted in a couple of people who were too afraid of who I once was to be my friend and some people who felt my problems

is that it brings out the best in people. When you put your trust in someone, they normally respond positively and try to protect that trust. When you open up to someone about your deepest and darkest secrets, humans recognize that vulnerability and respect that. This is a phenomenon that puzzles me based on everything we’ve been taught since childhood,

and I wish I had the ability to test out why this is the case. If I had to take a guess — and this is my column so I will — I believe this occurs because we assume the role thrust upon us by the person who is putting their faith in us. Our mindset is simply, they trust in me, so I must uphold that trust. I’m not going to say blind faith is foolproof, because there are clearly a few bad apples on the tree, but I’ve been more than surprised by the number of friendships I’ve created through this notion of trusting someone you’ve just met. It’s what makes me so excited to walk into that room every Thursday with those eight people, many of whom will be friends by the end of the quarter. When I walk into that room, we don’t need to have a superficial chat in order to break the ice. We can dive headfirst into our issues, all of which hold the same weight. It’s 90 minutes of learning and growing as human beings and it’s all made possible by blind faith. Now I’m not saying you should go out and tell your scariest secret to the next person you see walking down Sheridan. I’m not saying you should trust every single person you meet here at NU. But it might not be a bad thing to open up to someone you just met at a party because you never know if blind faith can help you solve your problem. Josh Walfish is a Medill senior.

Don’t say ‘I’m sorry’ when Alternative prison efforts consoling friends, family offer outstanding benefits Meera Patel

Daily columnist @soshaloni

Apologies are necessary when you have done something wrong. If you have messed up, it is good to admit it. Admitting you have made a mistake is a form of taking responsibility for your actions. But if you are comforting your friend, do not apologize if you’re not the cause of their feelings. “I’m sorry” gives no comfort unless you are the cause of the confusion or sadness. If you are feeling pity for a friend because they are going through a rough time, by all means, figure out a way to help. But if you tell them you’re sorry for the way they are feeling, that brings your emotions into the picture when really we’re talking about their emotions. Even if you leave the “I’m” part unsaid, there is an unsaid first person subject in the phrase. The “I” in “I’m sorry” puts emphasis on the person who is making the statement, not the person to whom you are apologizing. The emphasis only needs to be on the person making the apology if they really have done something wrong; if they haven’t done anything wrong, then they are just saying how they feel. I’m not saying it’s always bad to say how you’re feeling. I am saying that if you are trying to comfort a friend about a situation and you feel bad for them, chances are they’re already feeling pretty bad for themselves and you saying that you feel bad for them can add an unnecessary layer of guilt and emotion. You’re trying to help your friends feel better about their situation. You don’t want to minimize their experience by not acknowledging that they are going through a tough situation, but you also don’t want to make them feel like the situation is worse than it actually is. There’s a fine line between saying the wrong and right words. Really think about how they are feeling. Would you want someone to say “I’m sorry” and make it clear that they feel pity for you? Does the person you are trying to comfort want to be pitied? Sometimes people make it clear that they are going through a rough patch and that they want your sympathy. If you think they need someone to acknowledge further that their situation is a bad one, then by all means, show them that you feel pity for them and say “I’m sorry.” Other times, people are really having a hard time and realize it. Indecisiveness is a terrible

feeling; if your friend is talking about a moral dilemma that they’re clearly very confused about, saying “I’m sorry” adds another layer of feelings and guilt that makes the indecisiveness worse, and makes them feel bad for telling you what’s going on because now you, the adviser, are feeling sorry for them. People in need sometimes need to be reminded that they are capable of handling their own situations. “I’m sorry” subliminally makes it seem like you are in a place to be apologizing for something that you haven’t done and taking responsibility that isn’t yours to take on. Taking responsibility can make it seem like you are in a position of power over that person. If they are coming to you with a problem and you treat them as if you are superior to them by saying you’re sorry, it isn’t going to make them feel better and they are probably not going to want to approach you with problems in the future. The point I’m trying to make is that we really need to think about the person who is coming to us for help and not about ourselves in these situations. If someone is coming to you for help, really think about where they are coming from, especially if they are in a delicate situation. Make them the focus of the conversation. Think about how they are feeling; don’t talk about how you feel unless the situation directly relates to you and you explaining how you feel will somehow make them feel better. Take responsibility when you’ve made a mistake, but figure out a different way to help a friend if you feel pity for them. Meera Patel is a McCormick junior.

Daily COLUMNIST

Perhaps the most forgotten of forgotten populations are prisoners. Though the forcible removal of felons from society may sustain the common good, it alspo gives us the opportunity, if we so choose, to forget those with whom we share our humanity. In the United States, one in 99 adults are incarcerated. The national average for recidivism is 67.5 percent; the highest rates range from 70.2 to 78.8 percent among nonviolent criminals. With such high rates, how can our prisons rehabilitate inmates in such a way that decreases that average? One solution is Shakespeare. Prisons as correctional facilities that provide an opportunity to perform theatre benefit inmates because it allows them to empathize with others and themselves. The proof of rehabilitation via theatre is in its practice. In 2006, the Muddy Flower Theatre Troupe, so named because of the ability for beautiful things to grow from undesirable circumstances, produced “King Lear” at the Racine Correctional Institute in Wisconsin. Having won a grant of $2,500 from the Wisconsin Department of Corrections to stage the tragedy, Jonathan Shailor helped form the Muddy Flower Theatre Troupe, a group of 17 inmates. The group, which included five inmates who had never read Shakespeare, spent nine months studying the script, watching four film adaptations and writing about how the characters connected to their own lives. After the rehearsal and

performance process ended, inmates claimed to be brought out of their shells, often identifying as people who seldom left their cells. Steven Miller, who played Cordelia in the 2005 production of “King Lear,” identified with his character as an unwanted child; his mother told him he should have been an abortion. He claims that “putting the costume on is an excuse to show emotion.” In a setting where a shown emotion is a rare commodity, the value of opening oneself up cannot be underrated. Another group bringing Shakespeare to criminals in correctional facilities is Shakespeare Behind Bars (SBB). SBB creates “theatrical encounters with personal and social issues to the incarcerated, allowing them to develop life skills that will ensure their successful reintegration into society.” Founded in 1998 as an independent program at the Luther Luckett Correctional Complex in Kentucky, SBB has grown to include 10 programs in two states, Kentucky and Michigan. Some testimonials from participants in SBB’s program: “The feeling I had in my body was better than any drug could ever offer me” and “it completely set me free. I live differently every single day now, knowing my heart is capable of many good things.” Why would anyone deny the growth possible for wrongdoers that comes with understanding themselves? There is also an incredibly low recidivism rate for inmates enrolled in Shakespeare programs. SBB cites a rate in Kentucky of nearly 30 percent, half of the national average, but only 6.1 percent of those participating in the program return to prison in three years. With such a positive effect, why hasn’t this exercise been included in daily life for convicted felons in prisons across the country, and why hasn’t it been publicized more? Funding, an easy excuse for everything these days (or the root of many of today’s problems). Many of these non-profit organizations rely completely on donations from individuals. These opportunities are slowly becoming more and more available to a growing incarcerated audience, but it is often good to remember those who may have been forgotten, for whatever reason. And when we do remember them, to give them the resources necessary to rescue themselves from their situation. Though Shakespeare is only one of those ways, it is undeniably a powerful one. If all the world is indeed a stage, let’s give the opportunity to be seen to those we may prefer not to see. Sam Douglas is a Communication sophomore.

City to complete addition of new parking meters by end of May

Evanston will soon complete the installation of nearly 1,700 new parking meters across the city, officials say. The city has already installed 1,585 of the new meters and expects to install the rest by the end of May, city officials said. “We’re excited about our new parking meters,” parking facilities supervisor Michael Rivera said in an informational video released by the city. “We feel that it will bring in tons of high-tech functionality into a traditional single space parking meter. It’s going to give us years of dependability and user convenience.” Each of the new parking meters has a “rechargeable battery with solar power assistance,” which will allow Evanston residents and visitors to pay in new ways. The new

City police participate in national feedback survey People who interact with Evanston police are now able to evaluate those exchanges through the department’s involvement in a national policing survey.

National News New drugs provide cure for hepatitis C, research finds Twenty-five years after scientists first identified the hepatitis C virus, doctors are declaring victory over an infection that afflicts more than 3 million Americans and kills more of them than HIV. In a series of clinical trial results, a new generation of antiviral medications was able to clear the liver-ravaging virus from virtually all patients’ bloodstreams in as little as eight weeks. Even in patients with the most stubborn infections, the new drugs were capable of suppressing the virus completely at rates well over 90 percent. The treatments, however, come with a steep price tag. The “sustained virologic responses” reported in the trials typically mean an infection has been permanently cleared. Only further research will establish that these cures will endure, averting an estimated 15,000 deaths a year from liver disease in the U.S. Worldwide,

meters will still accept dollars and coins such as nickels, dimes and quarters but will now also accept credit cards, including MasterCard and Visa. Customers can also pay with a combination of coins or dollars and a credit card, although the physical money must be inserted before the credit card. The meters have been encrypted to protect credit card information and do not store customers’ credit card information, Rivera said. The screens of these parking meters will display operation days and enforcement times. If the card is accepted, the machines will prompt the customer to select the amount of time he or she wishes to park. However, if a card is declined, the screen will say so. The new meters “will have increased functionality and user convenience,” Rivera said.

Downtown Evanston named Annie Coakley as its new executive director, the organization announced last week. Coakley previously worked in Chicago’s Planning and Development Department as an assistant to the commissioner, a position she held for more than 16 years. Coakley will replace Downtown Evanston’s former executive director, Carolyn Dellutri, who left the organization in January for a job as a senior director of programs and services at the National Main Street Center in Chicago. Downtown Evanston is a nonprofit corporation that coordinates with Evanston and local businesses to improve Evanston’s downtown business sector. Coakley will begin her new role at Downtown Evanston next week.

Starting this week, EPD will be one of about 100 agencies to participate in a study of interactions between police and the community. The Police-Community Interaction Project, which is part of the National Police Research Platform, allows residents to provide feedback on their interactions with officers and also contribute to a larger collection of data. After a police report has been filed, community

members will be asked to take a survey, which they can complete online or by telephone. They also will have the option to take the survey in either Spanish or English. The survey, which is administered by the University of Illinois at Chicago, will not be made available to EPD, but general data from the study will be provided to participating police agencies. “We sincerely hope that anyone who has had an

interaction with one of our officers and receives the letter will take the survey and provide us with honest feedback,” Evanston Police Cmdr. Jay Parrott said in a news release. “Only then can we truly understand how our officers are interacting with the community and implement changes where they are needed.”

as many as 3 percent of people have the infection known as HCV. The new medications are “a triumph of modern medical technology,” said Dr. Jeffrey Tice, a University of California, San Francisco, physician who was not involved in any of the clinical trials. Results were published this week in the New England Journal of Medicine. In the treatment of chronic hepatitis C, achieving such success in so short a time, with relatively mild side effects and with a single pill daily, is without precedent. Until recently, physicians relied on two wide-spectrum antiviral medications _ interferon and ribavirin _ that required precise dosing over periods as long as 48 weeks. Fewer than half of HCV patients are even eligible for the treatment, which comes with punishing side effects. And the regimen’s difficulties cause many to abandon it. “It may now be possible to imagine the global eradication” of chronic hepatitis C, Harvard Medical School liver specialists Drs. Raymond T. Chung and Thomas F. Baumert wrote in the New England Journal of Medicine. In the same way that antibiotics made victory over human bacterial infections possible

in the 20th century, the new antiviral medications have “revolutionized” the treatment of hepatitis C, wrote Chung and Baumert, who were not involved in the trials. The drugs _ some already approved by the Food and Drug Administration, others now under consideration by the agency _ offer “genuine prospects for the first comprehensive cure of a chronic viral infection in humans,” they wrote. Among the nation’s baby boomers, the new medications are likely to avert hundreds of thousands of cases of liver cancer and dramatically reduce the number of liver transplants. Americans between the ages of 50 and 68 account for roughly 75 percent of HCV infections in the United States. While many contracted the virus through illicit drug use, an untold number of boomers are thought to have been infected by tainted blood transfusions before a test for the virus became available in 1992. Even as health experts welcomed the trial results, they cautioned that widespread use of the new drugs would come at a steep price. A 12-week regimen of sofosbuvir _ just one of the medications in a proposed hepatitis C cocktail

_ costs $84,000, or about $1,000 per tablet. Treatment with simeprevir, another medication in the same class, can exceed $66,000. At such prices, U.S. patients will have only limited access to the breakthrough drugs for some time to come, Tice said. The cost of treating even half of the Americans chronically infected with HCV would exceed the amount currently spent on all radiological imaging, said Tice, who helped assess the cost and accessibility of the new medications for the California Technology Assessment Forum. Insurers will probably limit their use to patients with advanced fibrosis or cirrhosis of the liver, a group that represents about one-third of those infected in the U.S. Those patients are at the greatest risk of developing liver cancer or liver disease severe enough to require a liver transplant, conditions that are costly and time-consuming to treat. The new medications assessed in the latest trials were developed by Gilead Sciences Inc. of Foster City, Calif., and AbbVie of Chicago. The two drug companies funded the trials.

Makeup Mavericks: Meet freshman Sharon Wei By Elizabeth Santoro the current

Some days it seems like you barely have enough time in your schedule to shower before class, let alone put together the perfect look. But amazingly, Northwestern is filled with students who manage to look flawless — even with five midterms a week and a thousand extracurriculars. Each week, I’ll talk to someone on campus and get her makeup tips and tricks. This week, I talked to Communication freshman Sharon Wei about how she does her eye makeup. Eye makeup can be a tricky task. Too little is barely noticeable, and too much looks like you’re ready for a burlesque show. However, whatever look you’re trying to achieve is up to your artistic license. One look that seems to always pop is Wei’s “strong cat eye.” Her look is perfect for day or night. Here she gives some tips and tricks about her makeup. “I like to focus on the eyes because I think when you talk to someone, often you look into their eyes,” Wei said. “It’s something you notice more often, and

for me, I like to evoke confidence wherever I go.” Whenever doing makeup, Wei points out that everyone’s eye shape is different. So when watching tutorials or looking for inspiration, remember that some tweaking might be needed to fit the look to your face.

that difference between catching the shuttle and walking. Sharon’s Tip: “If you are using an eyeliner that you don’t feel is that great right now, you can run it under a lighter just very quickly, just one time through, and it will melt the wax. Just let it cool down, and it will create that smudgy black eyeliner.”

Eye shadow

For Wei’s eye makeup, she starts with a creambased shadow instead of powder. Wei finds cream eye shadow to have more color and last all day. Colors that blend well together are also a must so they look more natural. Sharon’s Tip: “Evanston winters are really dry, and then your eyelids can get really dry. If you just use powder, it can just flake off and just not stick, so that cream helps act as an adhesive.” After applying the base cream or primer, Wei will apply a shimmery shade in the inner corner of her eyes, a lighter brown in the middle of her lid and then a darker brown or black on the very edge or corner of her eye. Sharon’s Tip: “I think that we don’t sleep here at NU. We don’t. So we need a little pick me up. That light eye shadow will help capture any gleam of light, and it really just opens your eyes and makes

it look you got eight hours of sleep, which is never true.”

Eyeliner

Wei also uses a cream eyeliner for her eyes. The trick for getting the line smooth with just the right arch is drawing segment by segment along the lash line. Drawing out the line in one stroke makes mess-ups easier, and starting over can be

The final step of the process is adding mascara. Wei suggests slightly shaking the mascara back and forth as you apply it to your lashes. This movement will help get some of the space between the lashes that your eyeliner might have missed. Sharon’s Tip: “For people who have eyelashes that are shorter or eyelashes that are like mine that stick straight down, something I find really helpful is if you take your eyelash curler and just run it under your blow dryer with a little bit of heat for about like 10 seconds. Then you blow on it and make sure it’s not hot and then you curl your eyelashes. It will stay curled all day long. That way you don’t have to clamp so hard.” elizabethsantoro2017@u.northwestern.edu.

It’s strange how things work out, isn’t it? The Current finally gets a writer to talk about the theater events on campus, and in the first week of publication I have nothing to write about. Other than a few special events, not much went up this weekend. So, I thought I’d use this introduction to my column to introduce other people. There are so many productions that perform on campus each quarter that it’s easy to miss the more obscure

ones. Here, then, are four theatrical productions going up this quarter that you might miss, along with my take on them:

miraculous places as this one. Vertigo, Shanley Pavilion, April 24-26

“The Lilliput Troupe”

What is the role of a woman in the world? Follow the life of Heidi Holland, from her high school years in the 1960s to her success as an adult in the 1980s. What does it really mean to call oneself a feminist? Wendy Wasserstein’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play tackles all these issues and more. My Take: Lipstick Theatre is constantly producing theater as good — if not better — than StuCo, and this play will certainly be no exception to that trend.

Gaby Febland’s new play takes a vaudevillian look at the true story of a troupe of seven dwarves on their journey across the tumultuous landscape of Europe during World War II, and their experiences in the laboratory of Josef Mengele. A meaningful story during the week of Holocaust Remembrance Day. My Take: New work is very often a bunch of people sitting in a room being angry, so it’s refreshing to have a play journey to such

“The Heidi Chronicles”

Lipstick, Shanley Pavilion, June 5-7

“The Mystery of Edwin Drood”

The Charles Dickens novel of the same name that this Tony-winning musical is based on was left unfinished at his death. This year’s Freshman Musical invites the audience to participate, voting on different parts of the story to create one of over 800 different endings! #questioneverything My Take: I personally think this show could be the best one on campus this year, but then again, being in it creates a pretty significant bias.

TEDx

NU coach inducted into USA Field Hockey Hall of Fame

From page 1 “Everybody offers something different, but I think everybody was really excellent in a different way, telling different kinds of stories and topics,” she said. “I think it just worked incredibly well.” She said after working on the event for several months, she had taken all the necessary steps to ensure it was successful and was excited it was running smoothly and appealed to such a diverse audience. “I think its going far better than I ever even imagined it would,” Weldon said. “I think we worried about absolutely every detail in advance and then nothing went wrong.” She noted there are thousands of TEDx events across the country. During the morning segment, psychology Prof. Eli Finkel spoke about creating a matchmaking algorithm. He said with technological innovations and advancements in the field of psychology, creating this type of algorithm may be possible in the future. Student speaker Jackson Walker spoke about the importance of his Indian culture throughout his life. After being adopted as a baby, Walker, a Weinberg freshman, said he strayed away from his heritage until middle school when he realized how ingrained it was in his life. During the afternoon session, Aysha Chowdhry (Weinberg ‘04) spoke about the education system in Pakistan, noting 25 million children are not in school. Hyder Chowdhry, Aysha Chowdhry’s brother, said he attended the event to hear his sister’s speech, emphasizing the significance of the subject to him and his family. “We’re here to be supportive to our sister,” Hyder Chowdhry said. “She’s talking about education, and obviously that’s important to us and something we hope to see changing.” The event also included performances from Mee-Ow, Thunk and Purple Haze, among others.

Audience members said they were excited to see these performances interjected with the speeches, noting it gave the whole event a unique touch. Anne Thiel (McCormick ‘13) said she decided to return to NU for this event because she had never had this experience before and wanted to engage with the speakers. “I haven’t been back to campus in a while, and I’ve never seen a TEDx or a TED event live,” Thiel said. “I thought it’d be a good opportunity to come back to campus and see what’s going on, and the topics looked interesting.” Weldon said she and SESP junior Nikita Ramanujam became co-directors of the event after both applying to host it through the TEDx website. Ramanujam said she was inspired to start a TEDx event at NU

$500 and a free Starter League class. Additionally, NU students will be have the opportunity to vote for their favorite program from the top six entries throughout the week following RedesigNU. Students will be able to access and test out the programs through a “dummy site,” Kim said. The students’ choice winner and runner-up will also receive $2,000 and $1,000, respectively. Kim said mentors will also be available to help newer programmers. “Since the competition is open to graduate students and undergraduate students, we didn’t want to intimidate any new people with less technical background to not be able to participate,” she said. McCormick senior Sheng Wu, one of the on-site mentors and ASG technology vice president, said hackathons are “exploding” across the country, and he is glad NU is joining the movement to cultivate a “hacker culture.” Wu said RedesigNU is looking for a “proof of concept” and innovative ideas for its entries. “The hackathon is basically a campus-wide brainstorm,” Wu said. “I think a lot of the criteria will be based on how great your vision is. What we’re looking for here is not a final, polished Web application.”

In order to apply for the position, Mangelsdorf had to be approved by a 17-member committee consisting of faculty, staff and students. As part of the application process, Mangelsdorf and the other four competing Source: Northwestern candidates gave a public University presentation to the university’s committee. Sarah Mangelsdorf The four other finalists for the position included Robert Blouin, dean of the Eshelman School of Pharmacy at the University of North Carolina, Katherine Newman, dean of the Krieger School of Arts and Science at Johns Hopkins University and Julie Underwood, dean of UW’s School of Education. Prior to coming to NU, Mangelsdorf worked at the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, serving as the school’s dean between 2004 and 2008. She received her bachelors degree from Oberlin College in 1980 and her doctorate in child psychology from University of Minnesota in 1988.

Across Campuses More than 4,000 students participate in LA Hacks hackathon at UCLA

The basketball court at UCLA’s Pauley Pavilion was teeming with young hackers this weekend as more than 4,000 students descended on the school for the second annual LA Hacks event. The 36-hour hackathon drew developers from about 300 colleges including Stanford, UC Berkeley, USC, UC Davis, Harvard, MIT and Carnegie Mellon, and was touted by organizers as the largest hackathon in the nation. The event kicked off Friday night with a “mystery keynote” -- Snapchat co-founder and Chief Executive Evan Spiegel. During his address, Spiegel shared some words of wisdom on finding success. “I was fortunate enough to have my palm read by a wise old man in a Hong Kong temple. In addition to learning that I will be married and have a son before I am 30, he also gave me the three keys to success,” Spiegel said. “They are as follows: 1. Hard work. 2. Ability. 3. Human relationships.” Eighteen hours in, dozens of students appeared wiped out by the round-the-clock

hacking, sleeping on floors, air mattresses, bean bags, stadium seats, sleeping bags and, in at least one instance, on top of each other. Michael Tran, 20, managed to nod off for three hours in the middle of the activity by finding an unoccupied massage chair by the upper concourse. “I can’t code without sleep,” the computer science junior from UC Berkeley said. Last year’s inaugural hackathon was significantly smaller, drawing a couple hundred students from half a dozen colleges to co-working space Cross Campus in Santa Monica. The hackathon’s founder, 22-year-old UCLA student Hadar Dor, said organizing the event was a massive undertaking. “This was like our full-time job except for classes,” Dor, a senior majoring in cognitive science, said of the UCLA students who helped plan LA Hacks. “We even ditched class and ditched quizzes to get this done.” As with any event involving college students, the free food and energy drinks were flowing. Half-eaten burritos and cans of Monster and Red Bull lined the long tables set up in the middle of the basketball court. — Andrea Chang (Los Angeles Times)

after seeing it at several universities. She applied in an effort to give students and faculty a forum to share their ideas, she said. “I was in Boston last summer, and I noticed that every university around me had a TEDx conference. And I was at this great institution, and I was wondering, we have these great ideas, we don’t have a TEDx conference to share these ideas,” Ramanujam said. “I was like, ‘it’s about time we got them to work and share these brilliant ideas that we just heard.’” The event was sponsored by several different organizations including Panhellenic Association, Robert R. McCormick Foundation and the School of Education and Social Policy.

Northwestern field hockey coach Tracey Fuchs has been selected for the USA Field Hockey Hall of Fame, the organization announced last week. Fuchs, who this fall concluded her fifth season as NU’s head coach, is part of the seven-member class that will be the first group inducted since 2004. The induction ceremony will take place June 28 in Lancaster, Pa. “There’s nothing greater than playing for your country at the highest level,” Fuchs told NUsports.com. “It was an honor to put on my USA jersey for 17 years and to bring home medals. I was fortunate to bring home a bronze from the World Championships. Now I have the ability to give back to the game in other ways and I feel fortunate for all of the opportunities that I’ve had in the sport.” Before she got into coaching, Fuchs was one of the greatest American field hockey players of all time. She spent 17 years on the U.S. national team, playing for two Olympic and four World Cup teams and earning USA Field Hockey Athlete of the Year honors in 1990 and 1993. Once her playing career ended, Fuchs went into coaching, where she has also excelled. She came to NU in 2009 after more than a decade as a Michigan assistant, and has led the Wildcats to a 66-35 record, including the 2013 Big Ten title.

I’ve heard voices that I’ve never heard before speak up and voice their opinion. — Traveon Henry, on unionization debate

Players talk unionization at spring practice ALEX PUTTERMAN

daily senior staffer @AlexPutt02

Saturday’s public spring practice was ostensibly an opportunity for the Wildcats to invite fans into their preparation for the fall season. But it also became another forum for the ongoing debate about unionization at Northwestern. Several players opened up about the subject after practice. Sophomore safety Traveon Henry, wearing an “All Players United” wristband, said the team is divided in opinion about the union right now but is working to gather as much information as possible. “Everybody’s an individual, everybody is going to do what they’re going to do,” Henry said. “But as a team, we’re getting a good sense of where we all stand with the situation.” Having been declared employees by the National Labor Relations Board last month, the players will vote on April 25 about whether to form a union. Most players who have spoken about the union this spring have either explicitly

or implicitly suggested they were leaning toward voting no. Henry seemed to have a slightly different perspective. The safety said he has been in touch with former NU quarterback and College Athletes Players Association mouthpiece Kain Colter in recent weeks and seemed to imply support for Colter and his cause. “He’s still pro-union, and he still wants to get this done,” Henry said. “He’s very strong about it. He’s really trying to protect the players. That’s really his main cause: trying to provide protections for the players.” Junior quarterback Trevor Siemian, who has been vocally anti-union all spring, said the players had incomplete information when they first signed union cards back in January. “Did I feel misled? I don’t know,” Siemian said. “I definitely feel I didn’t have enough information to make the decision that I did. And I’m not the only one who feels that way. So in that sense yeah, but shame on me for not gathering enough information I needed to make a decision.” Henry somewhat refuted Siemian’s assertion, saying the players weren’t quite

misled but more just taken by surprise. He said they didn’t have a sense of how “impactful” the union would be and were then a little shocked when it became a national story. Coach Pat Fitzgerald said he supports “change” but doesn’t believe in the avenue CAPA has chosen to take. “I’m very proud of our guys for stepping up for raising national issues. But that’s not what this is about,” Fitzgerald said. “That’s my continual education to the guys. There are mechanisms for change, and I think it’s been well-documented that I’m an advocate for change. I just don’t believe unionization is the way to go.” Some have worried the union talks will divide the team into conflicting camps, but Henry spoke of the opposite effect. “It’s pretty amazing to see how much what we’re going through has brought up together as a team,” he said. “Now we have an open line of communication. No one’s afraid to speak up. I’ve heard voices that I’ve never heard before speak up and voice their opinion.” Junior wide receiver Christian Jones did not say which side of the debate he leans toward but said he and the rest

NU drops 2 to Iowa after comeback win Iowa

Northwestern’s game Sunday at Lakeside Field lived up to its highprofile billing. As a chilly fog rolled off Lake Michigan, the No. 5 Wildcats (9-4, 3-2 ALC) fell to the No. 13 Johns Hopkins Blue Jays (11-2, 2-2) 12-11 in double overtime. The battle of American Lacrosse Conference foes was incredibly tight throughout, with four lead changes and six ties. “I think we should have done a lot of things better,” coach Kelly Amonte Hiller said. “Obviously Hopkins is a great team and had a great win today, but our discipline is very lacking.” The first seven minutes belonged to NU, with the Cats taking advantage of Blue Jays freshman goalkeeper Caroline Federico, who was making her first career start. NU got three early scores from midfielders senior Christy Turner, senior Kat DeRonda and junior Jess Carroll. Johns Hopkins battled back over the next ten minutes, scoring four goals around another Cats tally to even the score at 4-4. NU looked poised to Obviously enter halftime with a Hopkins is a lead when great team and it received had a great win goals from today, but our DeRonda and senior discipline is midfielder Kate Macvery lacking. donald in Kelly Amonte the final Hiller, five mincoach utes of the first period, but Johns Hopkins scored twice with under a minute remaining to even the score once again. The Blue Jays kept pushing until the final second ticked off only

At the seventh-inning stretch, it looked over. Luckily, the Cats played the last two and a half innings anyway. Northwestern (6-24, 2-9 Big Ten) overcame a 13-3 deficit Friday to defeat Iowa (20-13, 5-7) 14-13 on a walk-off single at Rocky Miller Park. Though the Hawkeyes took both games of Saturday’s double-header, the Cats won’t soon forget Friday afternoon’s drama. “Everything that could go right went right. They kept battling and finding ways to do things,” coach Paul Stevens said Saturday. “It was emotionally elevating from any aspect of the game you wanted to see.” The comeback began in the seventh, when the Wildcats mounted a five-run rally punctuated by a two-run home run from freshman third baseman Joe Hoscheit. NU followed up with four runs on five hits in the eighth, cutting Iowa’s lead to one run entering the ninth. An RBI single from junior Cody Stevens tied the game, and three batters later sophomore Zach Jones stepped to the plate with the bases loaded. Jones rapped a single to centerfield, scoring Stevens and inciting a Cats mob at first base. “Of all the (walk-offs) I’ve had in my whole lifetime, that was probably my favorite one just because of how exciting it was,” Jones said. The team played so great. Any one of our guys would have gone up and done the same thing, but it was fun to be able to do that. But after scoring 11 runs over the last three innings Friday, NU could muster only 1 over the next 18. The Cats were slated to play single games Saturday and Sunday, but a threatening weather report forced some preemptive schedule-altering and a Saturday double-header. The change didn’t entirely spare the teams from Mother Nature’s wrath, as lightning in the area forced a 90-minute delay during the first inning of the first game. Once play resumed, Iowa took control. The Hawkeyes scored 6 runs off Cats starter Brandon Magallones on

to have junior goalkeeper Bridget Bianco make a pair of athletic saves to preserve the tie. The Cats looked revitalized with two quick goals in the second half from DeRonda and senior attacker Alyssa Leonard. Like clockwork, though, the Blue Jays stormed back to score the next three tallies and take their first lead. NU caught a break with 10 minutes remaining when an errant Johns Hopkins pass rolled into the neutral zone. DeRonda scooped it up, charged 40 yards down the field and buried it into the back of the net to even the score for the Cats. “You try to coach as much as possible,” Amonte Hiller said, “and use the set pieces and defenses that you’ve put in and hope that people will step up.” Sophomore midfielder Kaleigh Craig scored minutes later to give the lead back to NU, and the team looked ready to run out the clock and take home a hard-earned victory. But the Blue Jays weren’t about to roll over. They forced a turnover with two minutes to play and found the net, sending the game into overtime. The fog intensified and rain

began to fall at the opening draw of the extra periods. Despite the added weather difficulties, Johns Hopkins struck first to reclaim the lead. The squads switched sides for the second overtime period, and the Cats quickly scored to equalize the game again. Still tied at the conclusion of two overtime halves, the game proceeded into sudden death. After an additional five minutes of play, the Blue Jays snuck a goal past Bianco to take home the win. Despite the tight nature of the game, Amonte Hiller seemed unimpressed with her team’s performance. “We had mental lapses,” she said. “We have to sort that out if we want to be good.” After ripping four against Johns Hopkins, DeRonda now has 13 goals in her last four games. When asked how important the senior would be to the team’s playoff push, Amonte Hiller simply replied “important.” NU will conclude its ALC schedule April 19 against No. 4 Florida before wrapping up its regular season April 26 versus USC at Wrigley Field. robertpillote2017@u.northwestern.edu

their way to an 8-1 victory. It took a surprise game-three starter to quiet Iowa’s offense. Jack Quigley, usually the team’s ace reliever, had pitched the day before — throwing an inning and picking up the win Friday — but was called upon to start anyway. The senior ceded only 1 run and over six innings. “The young man goes after people, he throws strikes,” Stevens said of Quigley. “There’s an intestinal fortitude about him that is second to none. He is the real deal.” Quigley got out of trouble in the sixth thanks to his defense. With the bases loaded and one out, Cody Stevens fielded a grounder, stepped on second and fired to first for an inning-ending double play. Stevens played impressive defense all weekend, handling the easy plays and diving for the hard ones. “Every position that everyone plays, they’re expected to make plays,” he said modestly. “Nobody goes out and picks a position and goes, ‘I hope I make the play.’ Everyone goes out there and knows they can make the play.” But the Cats’ bullpen struggled after Quigley came out, allowing a run in the seventh and three in the eight. Meanwhile, the bats provided little support, scattering eight hits but only reaching third base once. After the thrilling start to the weekend, being outscored 13-1 in a doubleheader was not the desired follow-up. “We didn’t pitch very well, to say the least,” Paul Stevens said. “We’ve got to do a better job of that. We’ve got to keep ourselves in games. We can’t give up crooked numbers so early and think in this ballpark you’re going to have nights like (Friday). We do have to score more runs; that’s absolutely a scenario.” The Cats next host Milwaukee on Tuesday. asputt@u.northwestern.edu
