Muslim Solidarity Rally becomes campus march

Anna Spexarth | THE COLLEGIAN

Rally-goers hold signs and march on campus after the Manhattan, Kansas Solidarity Rally that was in held in Bosco Plaza on Feb. 1. The rally was held in protest of President Donald Trump’s recent executive order regarding immigration.

RAFAEL GARCIA THE COLLEGIAN

Hundreds of students, faculty and Manhattan residents braved freezing temperatures Wednesday evening to attend the MHK Solidarity Rally, which later turned into a march on Anderson Avenue, in Bosco Student Plaza in protest of President Donald Trump’s executive order that limits immigration from certain Middle Eastern countries. At the rally, Marjan Habibi, graduate student in economics from Iran, said she is not able to see her husband under the immigration restrictions. “My husband is in Iran, so I cannot go to see him, and he cannot come to see me,” Habibi said. “I hope that President Trump actually just makes an exception for students. We’re only students, we’re not terrorists. Not all of us immigrants are terrorists.” Lisa Tatonetti, English professor and one of the rally’s organizers, led participants in several chants, such as “K-State won’t hate” and “no ban, no wall; Manhattan, Kansas, wel-

comes all.” Tatonetti also introduced speakers at the rally, which included representatives from several multicultural student organizations, including the Indigenous Alliance, the American Ethnic Studies Student Association and the Universalist Unitarian Church. The Rev. Jonalu Johnstone, minister at the Universalist Unitarian Church, asked rally attendees what democracy looked like. “I know that democracy is chaotic and wild,” Johnstone said. “I know that democracy strives to navigate the difficult form between majority opinion, and minority rights... Today, Muslim brothers and sisters, we are here for you. Tomorrow, we are here for whoever is next at risk… we have each others’ backs.” LaVerne Bitsie-Baldwin, director of the College of Engineering Multicultural Engineering Program and co-chair of the Indigenous Alliance, said the alliance stands with all immigrants and refugees. “Today, we stand in solidarity with the K-State community,” Bitsie-Baldwin said. “For

over 500 years, the indigenous peoples have taken in outsiders and refugees from all around the world. We have accepted a multitude of individuals and beliefs, and we are here in solidarity with our Muslim allies.” April Petillo, assistant professor of American ethnic studies, particularly spoke against Trump’s executive order. “The executive order issued by Trump on Jan. 27, protecting the nation from foreign terrorist entry into the nation, does not protect nor does it ensure safety,” Petillo said. “Instead, it preys on fears, it directs anger and it effectively does us all harm.” “When we buy into these ideas, we show that we do not know these histories,” Petillo said. “If we are really against terrorism in all its forms, we stand for migration. We stand for each other, and we stand against this order.” Other speakers urged action. “We really need to take that anger and turn it into action,” Alonso Pena, junior in English and American ethnic studies and president of the American Ethnic Studies Asso-

ciation, said. “I really appreciate that we’re all here. We need to keep breaking the silences.” Dan Cutter, instructor of public speaking, said Trump’s immigration executive order and other political actions should anger American citizens. “Mere hours after the CEO of Exxon Mobil was confirmed as Secretary of State today, hours after the House removed a restriction that required oil companies to disclose payments to foreign governments, what we are witnessing is the rise of fascism in the United States,” Cutter said. “We have always been told that this cannot happen here, that America is exceptional, that we are immune to this disease, but it is happening now.” “We can no longer idly stand by while we allow this to happen,” Cutter continued. “Every single day, we must find ways to advocate and to resist against this regime. It does not stop with just advocating against the Muslim ban, or the wall, or any number of other

STUDENT POETRY “Lady Liberty’s Plea”

I signed my name on a dotted line, a blank check for the nation. My brothers' and sisters' freedoms as payment. As a soldier I'm trained to scale walls and fight tyranny. My blood, sweat and tears grease the Gates of Liberty. Lay cover fire down for family, that make a home for brothers and sisters who flee. I don't lay bricks or write laws but if we let the nationless lay at a wall then liberty will surely die. Fear is a suggestion that every soldier fights yet it gives terrorists advice. This is why freedom needs to ring not fall on deported nights. I signed my name this blank check for families fleeing from tyranny. Samuel Wickersham, senior in business management Sergeant in the Kansas National Guard

Wildcats fall in overtime SCOTT POPP

THE COLLEGIAN

After losing two straight games on the road, a game in the friendly confines of Bramlage Coliseum against TCU sounded like it was exactly what the Kansas State men’s basketball team needed. But the Wildcats squandered a late lead in regulation and TCU dominated the overtime to hand K-State an 86-80 loss. The Wildcats fall to 15-7 and 4-5 in the Big 12 with the loss. It is the third straight loss for K-State who really needed the win with their next three games coming against Baylor, Kansas and West Virginia. “You have to get stops down the stretch, you have to make free throws, you have to Nathan Jones | THE COLLEGIAN

Senior forward D.J. Johnson throws his headband off after the K-State game against TCU in Bramlage Coliseum on Feb. 1.

block-out on free throws and we did not do any of those,” head coach Bruce Weber said. “It is disappointing for our guys and we had our chances.” K-State’s start was similar to those of the last two games when they started off slow and accrued a deficit too big to overcome. TCU pulled ahead 29-14 at one point in the first half largely because of a 16-4 run. K-State turned the ball over six times during that span allowing TCU easy baskets off turnovers. Just when it looked like TCU might pull away and go into the half with a big lead, K-State responded. After the Wildcats went down 29-14 they would end the half on a 24-6 run to go into the break with a 39-35 lead. Senior forward DJ Johnson and freshman guard Xavier Sneed sparked the Wildcats run. Johnson finished the first half with 13 points on a perfect 6-6 from the field. Sneed came off the bench with energy, he scored eight points in the half, including two threes. “They scored very easy

early,” Weber said. “(Head coach Jamie Dixon) gets mad at their big kid and puts in (Karviar) Shepherd, who gets eight in the first few minutes. To our guys’ credit, we picked up the aggressiveness, disrupted them and got the lead at the end of the half.” K-State was not able to carry their first half momentum into the second half. The Wildcats were just 3 of 12 from the field midway through the first half. The score went back-andforth for much of the second half, with both teams struggling to get their offenses going. Sophomore guard Kamau Stokes was huge in the second half and down the stretch for the Wildcats. Stokes scored 14 in the half including four threes, he finished as the game’s leading scorer with 21 points. Sneed was also big down the stretch hitting some clutch free throws and huge tip-dunk.

OPINION: Carbon tax, cap and trade would help protect air quality KYLER JACKSON THE COLLEGIAN

Over the past couple of years there has been a lot of talk about implementing a carbon tax or a cap and trade system. Essentially, these are two sides of the same coin when it comes to combating the amount of CO2 we release into the air, but there are some differences we need to consider before implementing one. A carbon tax is pretty self-explanatory; it’s simply putting a price tag on carbon emissions. Finland was the first country in the world to put forth a carbon tax, roughly $25 per ton of CO2 in 1990. The theory behind the carbon tax is that it provides an incentive for businesses to start

using cleaner fuels, as it becomes too expensive to continue polluting carbon into the atmosphere. Cap and trade on the other hand, aims to put a limit on how much companies can pollute. “The cap on greenhouse gas emissions is a limit backed by science,” according to the Environmental Defense Fund. “Companies pay penalties if they exceed the cap, which gets stricter over time. The trade part is a market for companies to buy and sell allowances that permit them to emit only a certain amount. Trading gives companies a strong incentive to save money by cutting emissions.” The EDF says the cap and trade system is the “best shot” economically and environmentally in reducing emissions contributing to climate change. While both measures are

praised by environmentalists, there are some drawbacks. For cap and trade, effectively measuring out emissions can be extremely difficult to do and time consuming, not to mention companies may find ways to cheat the system, much like Volkswagen infamously did with their cars. Another drawback is that some proposals call for larger companies to receive more permits since they emit more pollutants, which just defeats the purpose of the policy. When it comes to a carbon tax, many argue that it will hurt small businesses who cannot afford to make the transition to clean energy, but also can’t afford to pay the tax. Another argument is that it’s a tax that extends to everyone who pollutes. So yes, that means you

could be paying a tax for driving a high polluting car. Both of these plans are heavily discussed among environmental scientists and environmentalists alike, as being one of humanity’s best hopes for reducing global CO2 emissions. Dr. James Hansen, former head of the Goddard Institute for Space Studies, perfectly sums up the necessity to make the rapid change to renewable energy. “If humanity wishes to preserve a planet similar to that on which civilization developed and to which life on Earth is adapted, paleoclimate evidence and ongoing climate change suggest that CO2 will need to be reduced from [current levels] to at most 350 ppm.” Recently, we passed the 400 ppm mark, and we need to discuss the negative externalities

of climate change and the cost on humans that isn’t being paid. The EPA estimates that in 2014, 57 million people live in counties that don’t meet national air quality standards. Additionally, increasing temperature changes can cause a wide variety of adverse effects such as asthma, increase in wildfires, droughts and more. A carbon tax and cap and trade are two ways that damages can be paid for. Money from the carbon tax could go to renovating infrastructure to make buildings more economical, insulating buildings so heat and cool air don’t escape, using LED lights and low-flush toilets, for example. The cap and trade allows the market to decide who gets to pollute and how much, while simultaneously cutting back on

pollutants each year and creating incentives for companies who do cut back. Both systems are obviously not perfect, but scientists agree that if we do not act now to curb how much we pollute, we will push past the point of no return; and by 2040, 33 countries will experience high water stress levels, the U.S. being one of them. By implementing both a carbon tax and cap and trade, I believe that we can take the global leadership role in moving towards a better, cleaner future.

Preceded by other restaurants in the Union, such as Panda Express, Subway and Qdoba, Chick-fil-A has been anticipated by many students. “I am so excited,” Alexis Abadayan, freshman in arts and sciences, said. “I haven’t been this excited about food since a Taco Bell was built by my house. I am going to eat (at Chick-fil-A) as often as I can,” The Chick-fil-A at the Union opened Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. Around 11:00 a.m., Amy Van Duesen, manager of the Union’s Chick-fil-A, said over 100 people had already been served and they projected to make about $10,000. The restaurant currently does not know how many people

it is projected to serve on a daily basis, but those estimates will be formed after more days of business, Van Duesen said. The Chick-fil-A in the Union is slightly different from the franchise’s other stores. The new Chick-fil-A has a more limited menu, such as not selling the spicy chicken breakfast biscuit or biscuits and gravy, among other meals. “We have the basic main menu items,” Van Duesen said. “We just don’t have some that wouldn’t be financially in our best interest to serve.”

NEW K-STATE PAYMENT METHOD

Another difference between the Chick-fil-A in the Union and other locations is that Chick-filA’s app, Chick-fil-A One, will not be used. Instead, the Union will be using an app called Tapingo. “Tapingo will connect to a student’s Cat Cash account, or can be loaded directly from a

credit account, and be used at the restaurants in the Union and across campus,” Jeff Clark, assistant director of retail services at the Union, said. Tapingo will have a soft launch in about eight weeks and a full launch sometime after spring break. It will be available on both iPhones and Androids. “We’ve been working on this system for nearly six months,” Clark said. “We are expecting a lot of use from students.” Clark said Call Hall Dairy Bar and Cornerstone Bakery will not be using Tapingo for payments yet. According to Clark, the message about the new features of the Union have not been made as public as they should be. “When the Union is finally pretty much complete, we will start doing a lot more marketing of what we have here,” Clark said. Chick-fil-A will be open 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on weekdays.
