Gillibrand’s five-point plan addresses gender equality in the workplace By Annie Palmer news editor


lizabeth Liddy earned her Ph.D. while working a fulltime job with three kids at home. She was able to strike a balance, but not without struggle. Her daughter Jennifer, whose husband died several years ago, is now a single mother with a young son that “happens to be quite brilliant.” He

would like to take Spanish and Chinese courses outside of school, but Jennifer already struggles to drive him to private school each day. “She’d like to get him more opportunities, but it’s like you don’t have that much time,” said Liddy, dean of the School of Information Studies. “How do you get him there when your day is already fully booked?” Liddy and her daughter Jennifer’s stories are not uncommon in today’s

world. Women now make up almost half of American workers and 40 percent of women with children at home are the sole breadwinners. Statistics like these inspired U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand’s “American Opportunity Agenda” — a fivepoint plan that cites paid family and medical leave, increased minimum wage, affordable and universal child care and equal pay for work as solutions to “ensure women work-

ers have a fair shot at earning their financial security.” In turn, Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) hopes this will help strengthen middle class families. “If you’re a single parent, it’s really tough, whether you’re male or female,” Liddy said. “If there are workplace issues, it’s a family issue.” In her proposal, Gillibrand said the American family and the American workforce have been greatly see women page 8

An inquiry team of forensic and legal experts, including a Syracuse University College of Law professor, has determined there is credible evidence that shows the Syrian government committed war crimes against many of its citizens. SU law professor David Crane, along with two other prosecutors and three forensic specialists, were asked to look at the credibility of an individual who produced photos depicting detainees who were tortured and killed, as well as determine the validity of the photos themselves. “The world is now seeing for the first time clear and convincing credible evidence that president Assad is killing his own people in a calculated way,” Crane said. Crane began working on the Syrian conflict in March 2011 when the civil war began. He put together a group of students to form a case against President Bashar al-Assad and his men, but he said the project has since grown into a case neutrally investigating all parties committing war crimes and crimes against humanity. He said the project involves mapping the Syrian conflict, building a crime-based matrix of incidents that have taken place each day and drafting sample indictments of individuals who have committed war crimes. Crane said data was gathered through blogs, news organizations, credible people in Syria and social networks. He said social networking was a tremendous asset when collecting information. According to the team’s report, a Syrian defector codenamed “Caesar” photographed bodies that showed signs of starvation, beatings and other forms of torture and killings. He then smuggled the photos out of the country. The inquiry team interviewed defector on the 12th, 13th and 18th of Jan. 2014. According to the report, he was employed by the military police. “Caesar” told the team that it became routine to take photographs of detainees who had been tortured and killed. see syria page 8

Sophisticated styles inspire student’s outfit By Charlotte Stockdale Staff writer

Timeless and sophisticated: those two words define how Brittany Beyer, a junior history and international relations major, chooses her daily outfits. “I generally shop for staple pieces that are classic. My mom has always had a huge influence on my style,” Beyer said. “From a young age, I’ve learned to shop for investment pieces — I buy good quality items that never go out of style.” For example, Beyer has invested in a perfectly fitted pair of black Paige jeans, which she has owned for several years, and pricey accessories, such as her pearl Chanel necklace and Michele watch, because they always pull together her outfits to look stylish and refined. Beyer, after spending her fall semester studying in London and traveling in Europe, bought most of her souvenirs based on that mentality. While her accessories from abroad bring her fond memories of her travels, they also tie in with her classic and sophisticated style inspiration. “I loved spending days after

class shopping at Harrods.” Beyer said. “On my various trips, I’d wander around shopping for items that complemented my style.” While Beyer admits she occasionally has the urge to show up to class in yoga pants, she will never succumb to looking “lazy.” Rather, she goes to class dressed nicely, and manages to incorporate at least three accessories into her daily ensemble. She said she’d rarely be seen dressed disheveled because her confidence directly correlates with her clothes. Beyer applies her “look good, feel good” philosophy even outside of the classroom setting, saying that she believes looking nice for job interviews can give an added edge in her performance. “At internship interviews, I look classy and stylish to boost my confidence. I will tend to air more on the conservative side. I’ll typically wear a nice top, black skirt, black tights and a black blazer,” Beyer said. “But I always manage to add youth to my outfits, so for example, I’ll tie in a pair of bright pink Tory Burch flats.”

Otto’s Army suspends night shift By Ellen Meyers and Jacob Pramuk the daily orange

Otto’s Army will suspend the night shift of the Duke University game campout for the next three days due to health and safety concerns from the belowzero temperatures. According to a Syracuse University News press release, the campout will end at 9 p.m. Tuesday and start at 9 a.m. Wednesday. The campout’s schedule will repeat the pattern until Friday, when the normal schedule will resume at 9 a.m. To assure correct line order, an Otto’s Army representative will record information before the campout ends each night. Students can move their equipment inside the Carrier Dome, but will have to have someone from their group resume camping at 9 a.m. each morning or the group forfeits its space.

Kavajecz reflects, looks ahead after first semester Tamara Rasamny staff writer

When Ken Kavajecz became dean of the Martin J. Whitman School of Management in July, his first goal was to get acquainted with the people in the school, he said. With this in mind, Kavajecz said his first few months as dean were focused on listening, in order to get a better sense of the goals, aspirations and concerns of students and faculty in Whitman. This has also influenced the way students at Whitman perceive the dean. Kelly Thompson, a junior finance major, said Kavajecz seems friendly and approachable. “Whenever I’ve seen him interacting with students and faculty, he never hesitates to smile and say hello,” she said. “I also like the fact that — being a finance student myself — he was an acclaimed professor of finance at his previous position.” After taking the first few months to listen, Kavajecz said his next priority was to focus on the undergraduate program at Whitman by engaging in a curriculum review.

“So this would mean revising our curriculum to be better suited to our students in getting jobs and opportunities once they graduate,” he said. Another goal Kavajecz has is to build community and professionalism, which led to the creation of a

project called IMPRESS. He said IMPRESS is not a class but a cocurricular program that fosters those ideals, as well as hosting group sessions and seminars. Although a development group is still working on the project, Kavajecz said next semester’s incoming class is going to have a good understanding of IMPRESS. Beyond a curriculum specifically for Whitman students, Kava-

jecz said the business school is also working on a program for students in other colleges on campus. Business Essentials I and II are part of a two-semester sequence that promotes an understanding of every aspect of business. “Business Essentials targets nonWhitman students on campus so that any student who’s interested in getting a grounding in business can do so,” Kavajecz added. “Frankly, it doesn’t matter what school or college you’re in, you’re going to work in a business.” Though Kavajecz’s full schedule has lent him several successful initiatives, he said he wishes he had more time in the day to talk with more individuals and groups. “I’ve met with a good fraction of the school, in small group sessions and one-on-ones, but I would’ve wished I’d gotten to more people,” Kavajecz added. However, Kavajecz has done a great job at listening, said Amanda Nicholson, associate Whitman dean, in an email. She also said Kavajecz is “calm” and “extremely professional.” Nicholson said she worked on

several initiatives with the dean, in order to help improve the overall Whitman experience. She added that she believes these initiatives will raise the business school’s ranking and its overall quality. “The new dean has a vision and a plan for Whitman which is clear and focused, and he brings with this a wealth of experience to help guide its implementation,” Nicholson said. Thompson, the junior finance major, said she hopes to see more of an inclusion of Bloomberg certification terminals in finance courses. She said she would also like to see the continuation of Microsoft Excel courses throughout a student’s four years at Whitman. “I also hope to see him strengthen (Whitman’s) reputation, which I anticipate he will,” she added. Kavajecz said one thing he learned from the students and faculty is that they are ready and open to improvements and to take on responsibilities. Said Kavajecz: “It has been wonderful.”

letter to the editor

University should collaborate with Al-Quds to combat extremism On January 13, 2014, The Daily Orange ran the headline “SU rejects ASA boycott against Israeli Universities,” referring to the recent vote by the American Studies Association to boycott Israeli academic institutions for their complicity in Israel’s repression of Palestinians. Concerns of academic freedom were the primary reason for the university’s opposition. Interim-Chancellor Eric Spina is quoted as saying “all viewpoints are central to this discussion and debate.” Ironically, Miriam Elman, an associate professor of political science, is also quoted opposing the boycott. It is ironic because Elman wrote a blog in The Times of Israel congratulating Syracuse University on severing its

ties with a Palestinian school, Al-Quds University. Elman shows her elation by starting her article with the sentence: “Never have I been more proud of my university!” The irony is two-fold because the reason Syracuse severed its ties with the Palestinian university was the failure of Al-Quds’ administration to quash a protest being held on its campus. That is, when Al-Quds upheld freedom of expression despite its opposition to the extreme viewpoints being represented, Syracuse cut its ties. Elman and the university are right to be concerned with racist hate-fueled events, as this demonstration at Al-Quds seems to have embodied. However, instead of severing ties

and punishing an entire university for the views of one group, the university has the opportunity to confront racism and hatred head-on by collaborating with Al-Quds to combat extremism through “discussion and debate,” thereby using academic freedom to isolate extremists. The same concern from Syracuse was not expressed when groups of Jewish Israelis swarm peaceful protesters at Tel Aviv University shouting, “Death to Arabs” during Israel’s 2012 shelling of Gaza; nor was there disgust when Israeli students burn Palestinian flags in protest to Palestinians’ remembrance of the Nakba, the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians by Jewish extremists at the founding of

the State of Israel. At a time in Palestinian history that could bring an end to a viable Palestinian state as Israel expands settlement construction, keeps Gaza in a state of paralysis, thuggishly occupies the West Bank, seeks to expand its borders, and crushes Bedouin villages, the double standard is a slap in the face to international justice. Although there may be disagreements about the ASA boycott decision, it is hypocritical to cry foul over concerns of academic freedom when Syracuse University is boycotting Al-Quds University.

January marks anniversary, significance of Roe v. Wade ruling Each new year offers new beginnings, new steps to take and doors to open, and a new leaf to turn. Most importantly though, it presents the chance to remember our past and look towards our futures. This January marks another important anniversary of a ruling that has protected the decisions women make about our bodies. In January of 1970, the Supreme Court ruling of Roe v. Wade let it be known that women have every right to make their own personal decisions about their bodies. Roe v. Wade was a step in the right direction, the turning of a new leaf.

January 22, 2014 is the 41st anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the right to safe and legal abortion, and a reminder of how far we have come. Yet we still are fighting every day to protect these rights. Since 2010, more than 200 restrictions on abortion access have become law— and 70 of these new restrictions passed in 2013. However, most young people don’t agree with these measures. In fact, six in 10 young Americans believe abortion should be available in all or most cases. The facts are pretty clear: reproductive health care is under attack, but we’ve got something to say about it.

This fight isn’t about being “pro-choice” or “pro-life.” Those labels don’t define us or the reasons on which many of us base our health care decisions because deciding to have an abortion is a highly complex and personal issue, and no one has the right, other than a patient and her doctor, to make decisions about one’s health care. So, instead of focusing on our differences, why not focus on the patients: the women that Roe v. Wade declared to protect the lives of 41 years ago. Many of us weren’t alive before Roe v. Wade, and I don’t intend to see the day that the clocks turn back that far.

Therefore, I’m standing with my fellow comrades and friends in saying today is a day to remember the battles we’ve won and the lives we’ve saved. This isn’t just a fight for women; this is a fight for all of us. For us all to see justice, we must recognize the connections between reproductive freedom, anti-racism, gender equality, LGBT equality, and immigration reform. One issue must be all of our issues, because without solidarity and collective action, we will never see social justice for all.

Family-related work issues demand attention Students at Syracuse University face a persistent reality: preparing for a future career means bracing to enter a workplace crippled by inequality and other unfortunate adversities. This was the focus of Senator Kirsten Gillibrandís visit to SU last week, where she outlined a five-point plan aiming to confront obstacles relating to the workplace. Her contention does not solely concern the modern female perspective. Instead, Gillibrand is rightfully focusing on the changing dynamic of the modern American working family. Gillibrand supports raising the minimum wage considerably, implementing better paid leave legislation, making outside-thehome child care more feasible and establishing an enhanced pre-K system. Here at SU, several of those issues are also acknowledged. The David B. Falk College of

Sport and Human Dynamics operates a child care service for SU students and faculty, and Elizabeth Liddy, dean of the School of Information Studies, has proposed opening an additional child care center. However, the Falk facility is understaffed and the responsibility of providing supplemental university-wide child care should not fall to one dean or college. Adequate child care is fundamental in a society where being well-educated and employed are the keys to success. To aid in combating the lack of child care available, Hendricks Chapel should use its resources to join Liddy and Falk in their efforts to make higher education and employment more accessible for families with young children. For students, becoming educated on not only future career paths, but also what the workplace landscape looks like is a necessary feat. Organizations like the Women

Leadership Initiative Steering Committee and forums like Elect Her – coming to campus this spring – work to empower college women and give them a voice in shaping the working world they are on the brink of entering. Though these are both admirable ways of confronting issues of workplace inequality, their efforts fail to connect with the campus community in need of workplace education aside from gender. The Student Association could help mend this discrepancy by hosting a forum in which members of the campus community address todayís workplace problems and explain how to become part of their resolve in the future. Managing family, work and education has become a balancing act in modern day America. However, this balance can be stabilized in the future with active support for family-minded legislative and institutional changes.

what you want to see on your screen. The history of timelines and “feeds” can be traced back to the introduction of the iPod. Apple introduced the world to a new thumb-scrolling, scroll-to-refresh concept of receiving data. This is considered by many to be the origin of it all. From there, startups like Digg and Reddit took the idea of user-chosen content and made their own websites. In 2006, Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr adapted the “feed” and it really took off. The following year, the iPhone was released and the rest is history. Essentially, Steve Jobs and the folks at Apple set the model for the entire industry to follow.

West Side story St. Joseph’s Hospital offers improved care for local residents with facility

By Zane Warman staff writer


t. Joseph’s Hospital Health Center, a major system in the Syracuse area, began servicing patients at a recently opened location on Syracuse’s West Side Monday. St. Joseph’s West Side Family Center is the most recent in a series of updates for St. Joseph’s, including renovations to existing hospitals, in order to provide primary care to more Syracuse locals. St. Joseph’s West’s one-story,16,000-square-foot facility houses 24 exam rooms, more than three times as many as the old West Side center, and is designed to hold a second floor if an expansion is needed. Labeled as a “primary care center” and open 24 hours each day, St. Joseph’s West places an emphasis on food and nutrition education for low-income families and individuals, which comprised more than 75 percent of the center’s patients in 2012. Syracuse’s West Side is one of the city’s poorest neighborhoods, with a predominantly working class and refugee demographic that often have Medicare, Medicaid or no insurance at all, according to a Jan.15 article on “To these patients, the Primary Care Center

is more than just a healthcare facility — it is a lifeline in times of crisis, a safe haven offering dignity and respect as well as quality health care,” said Kerri Howell, director of public relations and marketing at St. Joseph’s Hospital Health Center, in a statement. Bob Seigart, the partner in charge of the project at Schopfer Architects, said even if a deal had been struck with their landlord, the building didn’t lend itself to expansion. Ultimately, the demand for care required a larger facility. “It’s a little larger than most family health centers, but frankly, it’s well warranted,” Seigart said. “They were in a 4,000 square foot building and they already knew, because of the need of the West Side, that that (building) was woefully inadequate.” Apart from the smaller size, the previous building lacked “space and support services, such as lab, imaging and behavioral health” that was becoming necessary to properly care for the nearly 9,000 annual patients, Howell said. “The whole system is (centered) around family care,” added Marylin Galimi, director of engineering and construction at St. Joseph’s. “Pediatrics, behavioral health and adult services all under the same roof to be able to take

care of the whole family.” In order to encourage healthy eating, St. Joseph’s West worked with Paul Nojaim, owner of the neighboring Nojaim Brothers supermarket, to create a clinical and nutritional

CARE PACKAGE The expanded West Side primary care center marks the latest step in St. Joseph’s Hospital Health Center’s growth.

Active in the Syracuse community, St. Joseph’s has advocated for improved care for low-income patients. program. Customers at Nojaim Brothers earn points for purchasing healthy foods. Eligible patients can enter to win gym memberships, bikes and other rewards meant to promote a healthier lifestyle.

“The doctors can prescribe change and I can reward you for changing,” Nojaim said. Marilyn Higgins, vice president of economic development at Syracuse University, said she believes the partnership between Nojaims’ supermarket and the health center is going to make it possible to provide “one of the best grassroots neighborhood health plans in the country.” Higgins added that she’d never seen this kind of collaboration between a neighborhood grocery store with a comprehensive health clinic. She also said the collaboration would provide food studies and nutrition students in the David B. Falk School of Sport and Human Dynamics with unprecedented internship opportunities. While construction officially began in early 2013, Seigart said Schopfer and St. Joseph’s had planned to build the family center since the summer of 2011. The new hospital was funded using a $4.9 million state-sponsored HEALNY phase 11 grant, Howell said. Howell added that building the hospital did not raise taxes on anyone in the area. “It’s no different than how we are doing things right now, ” said Galimi. “Right now, we really don’t turn away anyone that needs care.”

women shaped by the increased participation of women. She added that women are an integral part of a thriving middle class economy. Liddy said she plans to create a universitywide day care facility for undergraduate and graduate students, staff and faculty members on the second floor of the iSchool. The room will allow women to nurse their babies, which is something Liddy said women can’t privately do anywhere on campus. The facility also serves as another option for those who cannot get into the Early Education and Child Care Center, a day care facility for Syracuse University employees and students, which places many applicants on a waiting list. Even if students or employees do get off the waiting list, the facility is also understaffed and overcrowded, Liddy said. Students with children could also benefit from on-campus apartments specifically created to house families, said Sherri Williams, a member of the Women’s Leadership Initiative, an SU organization that works to increase dialogue between women across campus. Williams, who is also a Ph.D. student at SU, said

otto’s army student section, said he came to the decision after he camped out from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and experienced the cold weather for himself. “What affected my decision was being out there,” he said. “I was out there for six hours and I was really, really cold and it made me think, ‘this might not be safe.’” He said he received the campus-wide weather alert after he finalized the decision, but he added that the email reassured him that he made the right decision. “Safety is our first priority as Otto’s Army,” Glidden said. “We want to be as safe as possible and give everyone a comfortable environment.” Hailey Temple, a junior public relations and information management and technology major, intended to stay outside the Dome overnight Tuesday. Her water bottle gradually froze, and she was reluctant to remove her gloves to send text messages, she said. “It’s really dangerous, I think, to stay here and camp out,” Temple said. “But I was ready for it. I was going to do it if we had to.” The possibility of moving the campout to inside the Dome was “too much to ask” and a “large expense” for Dome employees to handle, Glidden added. But Otto’s Army still wanted to have the presence of a campout to

she talked to classmates with families who said they often live in off-campus housing, in areas such as Nob Hill, making it difficult for them to commute to campus and be close to day care centers. These kinds of concerns, Williams said, are part of the reason that the Women’s Leadership Initiative was created. “We wanted to be able to hear from people we don’t ordinarily hear from. People in professional organizations are voices you are going to hear all the time, but a commuter student who may be invested in the community isn’t one you would typically hear from,” Williams said. Though she thinks Gillibrand’s plan is a step in the right direction, Williams said she believes it may be problematic to narrow it down to only strengthening the middle class. A woman in the middle class could have better access to resources than a woman in the lower class, she said, adding that some of the biggest impediments to getting out of poverty are transportation and childcare. “I just feel like a lot of the time when we talk about women in the workplace, the issues are pretty much always put in the default category of a middle class woman,” she said. Several of the plan’s provisions, including raising minimum wage and addressing pay equity, could help both working and uppersupport SU’s basketball team, he said. “We want to send the message to the Cameron Crazies, saying ‘We’re camping in subzero temperatures while you camp out in 40 degree weather,’” he said. “‘We’re the tougher student section.’” When asked about who would have been at fault if someone got sick or injured due to the cold weather, Glidden said he would take the

middle class women, said Harriet Brown, who is a professor at SU and also a member of the Women’s Leadership Initiative. Attitudes toward women have changed and will continue to change, she said. In the 1990s, when it came to balancing work and family problems, Brown said it was “every family for itself.” Plans such as Gillibrand’s, she said, will help propel the conversation forward.

“It’s in our economy’s best interest to support, rather than punish, working families,” Brown said. But the image of the “typical” or “traditional” working family is still subject to gender stereotypes, said Allie Curtis, former Student Association president. Fathers are still seen as the sole breadwinners and women are seen as the primary

syria Crane said after verifying that the person who took the photos was a credible source, the group began looking at the photos. He said there were more than 55,000 images total. The team had access to about 24,000 of those pictures, looked at 6,000 of them and “stripped down 150 to the bare minimum” to determine their credibility. “We went in open-minded but skeptical and we came away convinced that this evidence is both credible and reliable and the individual is credible,” Crane said. He said the evidence the group saw included photographs of detainees from three different detention facilities that had been tortured, starved, beaten, mutilated and killed by the Assad regime in a systematic and industrial way. “It was a manor not seen since the holocaust in World War II,” Crane said. “It was a killing machine.” Stuart Hamilton was a forensic pathologist on the inquiry team. He said in an email that a digital forensic expert confirmed the images weren’t photoshopped. Hamilton then looked at the photos from the point of view of an expert in injuries. He said he identified evidence of starvation, abuse, restraint and homicide. Moving forward, Crane and Hamilton both said the next step is up to politicians and diplomats. However, they both agreed that citizens

caregivers, she said, but this image is outdated. “If we hope to advance as a society with women contributing as men always have, and if we hope to be a society in which glass ceilings for women are a thing of the past, we must update current policies to reflect the changing family culture in America,” Curtis said. Though organizations like the Women’s Leadership Initiative exist to support women and the unique challenges they face in leadership, Curtis said women still deal with sexism, lack of confidence and inaccurate stereotypes in the workplace. Through a female-faculty mentoring program, Liddy, the dean of the iSchool, said she hopes to create a network for women in the workforce to support each other. “It is well-known that women, particularly faculty females, do not go for promotion at the same rate males do,” Liddy said. “And a lot of it is that they don’t have the time, but it’s also that they don’t have the confidence to put themselves forward.” Early on in her career, Liddy said she remembers seeing this stereotype play out. At each meeting, she would take note of how many women and men there were. The most frequent ratio, she said, was 97 men and three women. She said she often wonders, “How did the three of us move forward?”

A NATION DIVIDED Fighting began in the spring of 2011. Activists opposing the Syrian government were inspired by previous revolutions in Egypt and Tunisia, but their peaceful protests turned violent when the government began killing activists. Civilians started fighting back, and the civil war has caused more than 130,000 deaths. small steps that make the world a better place. “I think Syracuse University students can do a great deal by just being aware and talking about what’s going on in Syria,” Crane said. Hamilton added that although most people won’t be affected by the war crimes in Syria, they should still take notice. “To the average person, this makes no difference to his or her daily life,” Hamilton said. “But should the average person care that hideous things are being done to average people in another country? I would say yes.”

Fresh a i r Start-up company Auxygen expands with more innovation

By Ibet Inyang staff writer

Ryan Hope Travis spent much of 2013 standing on the streets of Syracuse, waiting to hear stories. The actor, director, musician and professor interviewed 17 African American fathers, giving an often underrepresented community a platform to share their stories, he said. He then turned their stories into a one man show called “A Shout in Salty Water,” which debuted at the Community Folk Arts center on Dec. 12 and closed on Dec. 14. He paid each person he spoke with $25 for a few minutes of their time. He has plans to develop a script and produce a full play based on the show, which he describes as one of his greatest works of art. The Daily Orange spoke with Travis about the process of creating his one-man show.

By Tom Sharkey staff writer

The Daily Orange: What was the interviewing process like? R.H.T.: I would walk through the community and if I saw a guy that was African American and he looked like he came from a certain income bracket, I would approach him and say, “Hey, can I ask you a weird question? Are you a dad?” When he’d say yes, I’d say, “I’m working on a play and I have $25 that I can compensate you for your time with. I just really want to hear your story.” I got a wide range of men; some homeless, some formerly incarcerated, some factory workers, a former professor, Ph.D., a number of men who are low income. The D.O.: How did you decide the play’s name? R.H.T.: Most of the interviews took place on Salina Street in the heart of downtown. Salina, if you know the dictionary definition of it, is a salt spring. And a ring-shout in the African tradition is what our ancestor did in the United States. For me, a Shout in Salty Water is the men calling, as if they’re underwater. The overwhelming experience that I had is these men wanted to be heard, and it was like they were screaming with all of their might, but nobody could hear them. The D.O.: What was one of the most interesting stories that you heard? see travis page 10


new startup company founded by Syracuse University students is breathing fresh air into the local economy and its not running out of steam anytime soon. Auxygen, the creative powerhouse that started in the basement of the Theta Chi fraternity house last spring, has been growing its business rapidly and recently made the move downtown to its new office in the Galleries of Syracuse on Salina Street.

Small businesses are what this country is built on, and we want to be accessible to anybody who wants to grow their company.” Marcus Baron auxygen ceo

“We were meeting with big name clients in the basement of our frat house last spring, and it got to the point where we realized that we had the potential for something special, so we wanted to secure

an actual office as soon as possible,” said Adam Day, an Auxygen co-founder. The move to the new office was finalized last August, and the Auxygen team has made the space its own. For a company whose mission is to provide design-based solutions to help clients big and small, the office succeeds in giving the impression that this team of SU students and freelancers know what to do and do it well. A lot of Auxygen’s work deals with website development and brand management for clients, but the team made it clear that it’s not really competing with companies who do similar work. Instead, it’s carving a new mold and offering a comprehensive solution for businesses that also need experts in videography, photography and social media. With digital platforms becoming increasingly important to the success of any business, Auxygen debuted the new Aux Package for the price of $1,999. The package includes creating a new website, with professional videography and photography, and social media integration for clients who want an affordable solution. “The Aux Package is an initiative to help small businesses get noticed and compete with corporate see auxygen page 10

Non-prescription drugs come with higher risk factors than rewards


rugs” are what Walter and Jesse cook, b*tch. “Abusing drugs” is shooting up heroin in a back alleyway and only wearing long-sleeved shirts to cover up tracks. Traditionally, it is not calmly swallowing a pill before sitting down at a desk to finish an assignment. I would be a liar if I said I was unaware of the black market world of prescription drugs. In high school, my peers would pop Adderall before an arduous Advanced Placement exam or a taxing all-nighter. In a sense, taking a test or writing a paper after railing Ritalin is the same as professional athletes competing while using steroids. It is an illegal advantage. But in my competitive Bay Area hometown, it never seemed taboo. In fact, my peers and I described drugs like Adderall or Ritalin as “legal cocaine.” High school and college students nationwide are abusing prescription drugs. It is no wonder, either. Prescription drugs are easy to obtain. According to a survey conducted by the Chicago Tribune, 70 percent of respond-

leave room for yeezus ers got their drugs from a friend or relative. Even though it is simple to look up common side effects on WebMD, a person never truly knows how a drug will affect his or her body. When dealing with something as serious as bodily reactions, the risks of prescription drugs outweigh the short-lived benefits. In high school, stimulants were about as common as Starbucks drinks. As my friends and I aged, more drugs were brought to the table. Anti-anxiety medication, like Xanax, became a staple. Painkillers were especially popular with the boys. After wisdom teeth removal, boys had access to Vicodin prescriptions and would hang onto remaining pills long after the pain from surgery had gone away. Even without a regular prescription, it was not hard to find

these drugs. And it was even easier to get hooked. The “hangovers” from these other substances are comparable with those from alcohol — but worse. In addition to the standard blackout, a person’s emotional state can and usually will plummet the next day. There is no Bloody Mary cure for a night of popping pills. During my senior year of high school, my friend took a high dosage of Adderall to finish a term paper in one night. He did not sleep at all. And to avoid the looming morning crash, he downed a triple-shot espresso before class. He was shaking in English class and his heart rate was going unnaturally fast. I noticed his bizarre behavior and told him that he should go home and get some sleep. It took him a few days to get back on his regular grind. Syracuse University is very blatant about their policies in regard to cheating and academic integrity. No, using substances is not the same as peering over a classmate’s shoulder, but it does cross a line since productivity levels

are artificially heightened. While at college, I have not abused any prescription medication. I have a weak tolerance to anything. Simply drinking a coffee propels me into an uncontrollable, hyperactive state. Instead of becoming focused or productive, I usually become overwhelmed and ridden with anxiety. Not the desired effect and certainly not worth it. When it comes to prescription drugs, I steer clear not because I am actively afraid of dying. Instead, I steer clear because I am afraid of a reaction gone wrong. That being said, I do believe that people who genuinely have symptoms of disorders and have legal prescriptions to medications are not “cheating the system.” The argument of whether Americans are legally abusing prescription drugs is one for another time.

mechanic, but, according to Darnell, he was also a gigolo. He was on his own since he was 9 and he was living on the streets at 10, but he felt indebted to Syracuse University because they gave him Christmas presents growing up as a kid. So whenever he finds himself in a low point, he pushes himself to be successful because he feels like he wants to pay the university back.

auxygen brands and big box retailers,” said Auxygen’s CEO, Marcus Baron. “Small businesses are what this country is built on, and we want to be accessible to anybody who wants to grow their company.” Though it has only been around for about a year, Auxygen is already expanding its company into the Syracuse community. The team has worked with Hilton Doubletree, SU professor and entrepreneur Carl Schramm and even helped rebrand Syracuse University’s Living SU campaign. “We all came together as a group of people centered around a core nucleus of design, and everybody brought their own contacts and individual expertise together, which has really helped us build our client base,” said Pat McGowan, another Auxygen co-founder. The team behind Auxygen has also focused on new ventures like the Ponix Future Farm technology. Baron describes Ponix as a “modular farming system,” and its innovative design could potentially revolutionize agriculture. The farming system allows its users the ability to “grow food, anywhere, in any climate, at any time,” and its convenient design allows for produce to be grown on shelves that can be stacked on top of one another. The team is currently trying to showcase Ponix at the New

York State Farm Show next month. The diversity of skills of each member has allowed them to pursue new ventures. There are eight main players on the team: Baron, McGowan, Day, Michael Choi, Drew Osumi, Rachel Samples, John Zell, Ousman Diallo and Baron’s younger brother Daniel. Baron, Auxygen’s CEO, is an architecture student and the builder on the team; McGowan is a designer and plays the role of the craftsman; Day comes from a fine arts background and has filled the office with impressive paintings as part of his work as the team’s artisan; Michael Choi, a contributing videographer for The Daily Orange, is the producer on Auxygen and is the team’s expert videographer. Photographer Drew Osumi; videographer Rachel Samples, the enthusiast; John Zell, programming and web developer; Ousman Diallo as the big picture thinker; and Baron’s younger brother Daniel, the realist, round out the team with individual attributes. Osumi and Diallo are both photographers for The D.O. Looking to the future, Baron expressed his plans to keep up with the team’s momentum and further refine the Auxygen brand. Said Baron: “We want to continue to build a brand that is accessible and that is known for design-based problem solving. Ultimately, we want to inspire and motivate others, and that includes recruiting hungry, talented students to join the team.”

Futuristic film shows consequences of dependency on technology

By Vincent Loncto staff writer


n its surface, “Her” is a captivating and thought-provoking flick that asks a multitude of questions about life, love and long-distance relationships. But there’s a twist: It’s all with a computer. Set in Los Angeles in the not-too-distant future, “Her” takes place in a world where technology is so advanced that it is ever-evolving and adapting, mimicking human behavior. Theodore Twombly, the main character played by Joaquin Phoenix, struggles to connect with longtime friends and strangers, as he is severely depressed in the wake of a separation and impending divorce from his wife Catherine, played by Rooney Mara. Theodore’s loneliness and vulnerability are evident in Phoenix’s body language and speaking style, especially in the beginning of the movie. However, his life is changed when he purchases an operating system called OS1, which has ads touting, “It’s not just an operating system, it’s a consciousness.” The OS1 is programmed to learn from human interaction, and tailors its behavior to its user. Director Spike Jonze, who kept the emotionally heavy film going with small, wellwritten gags throughout, incorporated a fitting soundtrack, featuring Arcade Fire. And the film also featured crisp images of downtown Shanghai, where much of “Her” was filmed. The original script, which creates a believable future, was unlike many science fiction or romance stories, as the director was able to mesh the two genres seamlessly. Upon starting up, Theodore’s OS1, voiced by Scarlett Johansson, names herself Samantha. When Theodore asks how she decided on the

name, Samantha says she read through an entire book of baby names in twotenths of a second, and decided upon Samantha. Theodore is fascinated by Samantha’s supercomputer capabilities, as well as her ability to form a personality, which he becomes attracted to. Still, she becomes a little too charming and eager to please Theodore to truthfully become her own character. But Theodore, desperate for acceptance, develops a relationship with Samantha, taking her to places like the beach and to a carnival. The character of Theodore is largely believable, as Phoenix expertly flips from elated to morose, excited to confused, in the way a man in his situation might. He can be hard to root for, however, as he corners himself into sadness repeatedly. Seeming to finally be on the rebound after his separation from Catherine, Theodore arranges to meet her to sign the divorce papers, something both of them had been reluctant to do for months. Catherine reacts in a particular biting manner to hearing that he’s dating his operating system, saying that since his inability to identify with real emotions doomed their marriage, dating his computer is perfect for him.

This was a strong moment for the actress, who was mainly featured in flashback sequences from Theodore and Catherine’s marriage. Though defensive to Catherine, Theodore begins to question his relationship with Samantha. The rest of the film urges the viewer to raise questions about the way we use technology, as Theodore’s experience makes one think about

the value of human interaction, the impossibility of controlling even those you love and how to find happiness. Theodore’s longtime friend who helped him through his divorce, Amy, played by Amy Adams, also struggles for happiness, and the two often confide in each other through the course of the film. Adams’ character, though, was more melancholy than necessary. But there were several scenes, such as a vacation Theodore takes, that seemed unnatural. Sometimes the film was able to create new wrinkles in the relationships between Theodore and those who surround him, but several failed to move along the plot. All in all, “Her” is well-written, wellacted and well-filmed. It is a different kind of movie, but it is a serious film that makes the viewer think, but it does have genuinely hilarious moments. It often moves quickly, and is often as complex as the operating systems themselves, but it is definitely a worthwhile watch.

Michigan’s Anlauf switches from WR to hoops walk-on By Jesse Dougherty asst. sports editor

Joe Anlauf swerved out of the way as a car cut in front of him. He and his wife, Karen, had been driving three and a half hours through a snowstorm from Hinsdale, Ill., to Madison, Wis. Now they were in the city and the Madison traffic was swirling around them while the snow came down harder than it had all day. Frankly, it’s a trip Joe thought he might never make — to see his son Brad Anlauf suit up for Michigan basketball for a 5 p.m. tipoff against Wisconsin. But with the snow, traffic and multitude of cars jutting into his lane, this drive is oddly synonymous with Brad’s journey to becoming a sophomore walk-on with the Wolverines. “I was always optimistic but there were times when it seemed like he may not make his way back to basketball,” Joe Anlauf said. “But he loved it and he always kept his eye on it.” After two and a half years as a wide receiver on the Michigan football team, Brad Anlauf now lives out a lifelong dream as a basketball walk-on with the No. 21 Wolverines. After enrolling at Michigan as a preferred football walk-on, he attended open tryouts this past fall and switched sports before football season’s end. It’s a move Anlauf always hoped for. And although he’s logged just 12 minutes this season, he’s found a role that he can embrace. “I never considered not going to Michigan because there were no spots,” Anlauf said. “I just waited for my opportunity and now that I’m here I’m just trying to push these guys every day.” At Hinsdale Central High School, Anlauf was a football and basketball standout that always wanted to play basketball for the Wolverines. But after Anlauf sent his high school tapes to Michigan head coach John Beilein, Beilein said he wasn’t taking another walk-on. The news was disappointing but it opened a different route. “We had a great group of walk-ons and there just wasn’t any room,” Beilein said. So instead Anlauf went to Michigan as a preferred walk-on as a wide receiver and stayed in touch with Beilein while redshirt-

ing as a freshman. Again, Beilein wasn’t taking another walkon and Anlauf started to settle into his role with the football team. At the start of his sophomore season, he felt he was close to earning some snaps with the progress he was making on the scout team. But then a phone call presented a final chance. “Beilein contacted me and told me there was an open spot,” Anlauf said, “and I just thought it had to be mine.” When the walk-on tryouts for basketball were announced, Anlauf was relieved that they were on an off day for football. Had they not been, he said he would have never gone. Then after making the first cut, callbacks were held at night after football. While his football teammates slowly retreated to the showers, he briskly moved to his locker, changed into basketball clothes and showed up to basketball tryouts already dripping in sweat. It was emotionally and physically trying but it paid off. By the weekend before Michigan football’s game against Michigan State on Nov. 2, he was on the basketball roster. “We felt a great sense of pride when he made it,” Joe Anlauf said. “We knew it was what he wanted and I just knew how happy he was.” Now Michigan sits atop the Big Ten and Anlauf is an integral part of its preparation. Beilein said he is the scout team’s power forward and “does a good job guarding” Nik Stauskas and Glenn Robinson III, who lead Michigan in scoring with 18 and 13.9 points per game, respectively. But when Anlauf isn’t as successful in practice, the basketball team doesn’t mind bringing up his past. In a recent scrimmage Anlauf ran under an outlet pass with no one around him. Then the ball fell through his hands and bounced out of bounds before Beilein blew the whistle and his teammates mockingly asked him what position he played in football. His answer: “I was a wide receiver, but was always a basketball player.”

shutouts as a soccer goalie and finished his lacrosse career at Montclair Kimberley as the all-time leader in points with 155 goals and 182 assists. In the summer before his senior year, Lane drew interest from North Carolina, Wake Forest and Syracuse. The Tar Heels and Demon Deacons wanted him for their soccer programs, while the Orange recruited him for lacrosse. So Lane had a decision to make: guard the net with a pair of gloves in the south or attack the net with a lacrosse stick in Central New York. “It came down to where my family and I thought I would succeed best,” Lane said, “and what was in my best interest.” Now Lane is prepping for his first season of collegiate lacrosse, but is still assumed to be an athlete in another sport. When he walks around campus in his official Syracuse jacket, No. 90 over his chest, people frequently ask him if he plays on the basketball or football team. “No,” he says, as if he’s repeating a routine. “I’m just a really big lacrosse player.” Once he steps onto the practice field, Lane no longer looks out of place. His big frame allows him to create space for his teammates. He sees

his vision as his biggest strength and teams in the past have been forced to double team him. After Lane, Syracuse’s next tallest players are midfielder Mike Iacono and defender Bobby Tait, and no other attack stands taller than 6-foot-3. Once he develops his skill set and adapts to the college game, he’ll bring a complexion to the SU front line that no other player can. “Guys like me, it’s impossible for us to take the ball from him,” said freshman midfielder Dylan Maltz, who is 5-foot-8. “His size is really a weapon, and I think it could be used.” In the short term, Lane has set his sights on cracking a starting rotation sometime this season. In the long term, he wants to do whatever he can — even if it means sitting on the bench — to help the team win a national championship. Then there’s the fantastical possibility of Lane giving SU basketball’s frontcourt needed depth. It’s a make-believe scenario Lane laughs about, but one that Maltz doesn’t find too far-fetched. “The other day we were at Archbold (Gym) and he just posterized some kid,” Maltz said. “I’ve see him play basketball and lacrosse and the funny thing is that he really could play either.” | @dougherty_jesse

centers With half a regular season plus postseason play left, it’s likely there will come a game when Jerami Grant or C.J. Fair will have to take a turn beneath the basket. And it’s almost certain Boeheim will face similar decisions to

the one he made late in the Pitt game. “We can play with foul trouble,” Boeheim said. “Our players know how to do that.” Luckily for Syracuse, its 16 fouls per game are the 12th fewest in the country. The team’s signature 2-3 zone has been especially beneficial in that category with the new handchecking rules this season. So if the Orange big men continue their production this season— Christmas especially — it’s likely Grant and Fair won’t have to venture off their traditional spots on the wings too often. “Defensively (Christmas) is one of the best bigs we have,” point guard Tyler Ennis said after SU’s 57-45 win over North Carolina on Jan. 11. “We count on him to get stops, we count on him to rebound and he’s just kind of getting the recognition now.” For the first time this season, Christmas has picked up four fouls in back-to-back games. Due to foul trouble, he sat on the bench for the final 18:27 of the Orange’s 69-59 comeback win over Boston College on Jan. 13. In his place, Keita picked up four fouls and Grant played more than the last 10 minutes with four fouls as well. Boeheim said it was the first game the team was seriously strained due to fouls. Grant, who was whistled for two questionable fouls on block attempts, said he’s learned to play with four fouls. “Calls happen,” Grant said. “You try to keep a level head and just go from there.” With Coleman out for the remainder of the season, keeping that level head and staying out of foul trouble will be crucial for the Orange frontcourt moving forward. | @Stephen_Bailey1

Tyler Ennis has gone from second-tier freshman to arguably the most valuable rookie in the country. With his improvement on the court, his projections in NBA mock drafts have risen as well:

joseph cast. The state championship team from last year returned only three of 14 players, and he’s had a difficult time adjusting. Next year, though, when he dons orange for the first time, he’ll be surrounded by offensive weapons. He said he’ll be able to find Trevor Cooney in the gaps, Rakeem Christmas on the block and fellow signee Chris McCullough on the wing. “I want to compete against the best of the best,” Joseph said. “I want to compete against the ACC. That’s the best conference in college basketball.” Ennis’ coming-out party has come against those conference teams, and Joseph said they’d thrive together in the backcourt. But if Ennis does declare for the draft in the near future, Joseph’s ready to take over right away. “I want to go up against the best and prove that I’m the best,” Joseph said. “That’s what it’s all about.” Growing up in Nashua, Joseph was always the best player on the floor. He first got into basketball when his sister played in high school and he had a crush on her teammate, Laura Aloisi. Joseph went to all the games to flirt with her and “all the pretty girls,”

his mother Myryl Copeland said. He said he’s always liked the older girls. He was even booming with confidence then. Joseph sharpened his game at the Nashua Boys and Girls Club before eventually transferring to Cushing after his freshman year to play in a more competitive league. He realized that if he wanted to achieve his longtime dream of playing for Syracuse he needed to play against the best players in New England. He said he wants to prove that he’s the best, so he actively works on his intensity, just like he hones his dribbling and shooting skills. “It’s the little stuff,” Joseph said, “like diving on the floor for loose balls. It’s hard to play hard all the time, and that’s something I’m really trying to develop, especially before I go to college.” If Ennis stays, Joseph is confident the two can mesh. He’s seen Dion Waiters and Michael Carter-Williams thrive in their second seasons after barely playing in their first and is confident he could do the same. If Ennis goes, Joseph says he’s ready to command the offense. “They didn’t recruit me to sit on the bench,” Joseph said. “They recruit players who they think can make an impact.” | @TrevorHass

SU bigs seek to limit fouls By Stephen Bailey sports editor

NEXT By Trevor Hass

asst. sports editor


ARRINGTON, R.I. – A gangly, inquisitive freshman walked into Barry Connors’ office at Cushing (Ashburnham, Mass.) Academy. Big glasses. Scrawny frame. The kind of kid who even his mother compared to Steve Urkel. “Do you think I’m good enough to go to Syracuse?” Kaleb Joseph asked the head coach. Connors looked at the budding prospect in front of him. He said he had enough talent to go, but that many other players had as much talent. He had to want it more. And that started with transferring to Cushing from Nashua (N.H.) High School. Three years later, Joseph is preparing to be Tyler Ennis’ successor. Whether Ennis declares for the

NBA Draft this year or in the future, Joseph has dropped the glasses, bulked up and readied himself to take the reins of the Orange offense. Joseph stands 6-foot-2,165 pounds and is the 10th-best point guard in the country according to ESPN. He received offers from Ohio State, UConn and Marquette, among other schools, but is next in line to be the floor general in Central New York. “Kaleb worked his ass off to get to that place,” Connors said. As his dream has manifested into a reality, his confidence and passion have never wavered. Joseph has proven capable of replacing or working alongside Ennis in the coming years. Both are playmakers with smooth games. Ennis has become the most talked about freshman in a class full of potential NBA stars. He’s thrived


2014 signee Joseph ready to take reins at SU if Ennis leaves for NBA

When Rakeem Christmas picked up his fourth foul with 4:42 left in Syracuse’s 59-54 win against Pittsburgh on Saturday, Jim Boeheim turned toward his bench. He looked at senior center Baye Moussa Keita, paused, then turned back toward the court. “I don’t usually worry about foul counts down the stretch,” Boeheim said after the game. “You’ve got to be able to stay out, and you don’t want to get missed plays out of the game.” On Monday, Syracuse University Athletics announced sophomore center DaJuan Coleman would require season-ending surgery for a left knee injury. That leaves Christmas and Keita as the only two players with experience playing in the middle of the Orange’s 2-3 zone. They’re also the two players with the most fouls this season. see centers page 14

Lane adds height to SU attack By Jesse Dougherty

atop SU’s zone while commanding the offense — just like Joseph hopes to next year. Both players score when their team needs them to. On Saturday against Pittsburgh, Ennis scored six of the Orange’s final eight points en route to a signature 59-54 win. Against St. Andrew’s on Jan. 10, Joseph placed more of an emphasis on scoring because his team was

down 20-plus and needed him to. Syracuse assistant coach Mike Hopkins compared him to Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook after watching him dunk, Joseph said. He bursts into the lane with a quick first step, and explodes at the rim once he gets there. But unlike Westbrook, Joseph doesn’t have a strong supporting see joseph page 15

Monday night, Matt Lane’s phone buzzed for an unusual text. It was his dad, Jim, making a joke he’ll probably hear a lot in the coming weeks. “Syracuse needs a new big man,” the text read. Lane laughed and shook his head. It was announced that day that Syracuse center DaJuan Coleman will undergo season-ending surgery on his left knee. The injury leaves a void in the SU frontcourt and Lane — a 6-foot-7, 252-pound freshman on the lacrosse team — does fit the mold of a hypothetical replacement. Yet Lane’s not on Jim Boeheim’s list of options nor does he want to be. Before his junior year of high school Lane chose to utilize his size as an attack in lacrosse see lane page 14
