Editor’s Note: This article was completed as an assignment for a class in the A.Q. Miller School of Journalism and Mass Communications. Members of Wildcats Against Rape, a student organization created to spread awareness of sexual assault and rape on campus, read excerpts from “Purple Cried” at Bosco Student Plaza on Monday. “Purple Cried” is a book about K-Staters’ stories of assault, support and healing. Wildcats Against Rape, also known as W.A.R., is dedicated to being a part of the solution to prevent sexual violence. According to their website, the organization’s goal is “to change the part of our culture that makes it acceptable for people to take control away from others and behave in a violent, selfish way.” Members from W.A.R., the Women’s Center, Counseling Services, and the Office of Student Life approached the podium and read passages from the book, while audience members listened intently. Along with the readings there was music, food, art, poetry and T-shirts on sale. Copies of the book were available for a $5 to $10 donation to help fund W.A.R. and the Women’s Center. Kristen Tebow, December 2011 graduate in sociology and women’s studies and former W.A.R. president, read her story from the book aloud at the podium. “I shared my story in 2009 for the Freedom Alliance during a human trafficking event,” she said. Tebow was one of five people who co-founded Freedom Alliance, a stu-

The presentation was organized by the student group Wildcats Against Rape and featured readings and speeches about rape and sexual assault. dent organization that aims to increase awareness of human trafficking. Mary Todd, adviser of W.A.R. and director of the Women’s Center, read a story about a girl who was sexually assaulted by a former K-State football player who gave out free

drinks at his liquor store. “She, like many people who go through trauma, was knocked off her trajectory,” Todd said. “But when she came back she was way above where she had been and she had so much power and so much strength. It’s like Khalil Gibran once

said ‘The more deeply that sorrow carves into your being, the more joy you can contain.’” Todd continued to speak about how the author of the story went on to graduate with honors, joined the Peace Corps in Africa, and is now living a “fabulous

life.” Kaitlyn Dechant, junior in psychology and current president of W.A.R., led the event. When asked about the readings, Dechant expressed sincere gratitude toward Tebow’s reading.

Stephanie Pearson, graduate student in curriculum and instruction, presented her research at the Achievements and Obstacles in Africa’s Development Week, organized at the United Nations headquarters in New York in late February. The research, which explored literacy rates in South Sudan, will be applied as a part of program on improving the system of education in the African country. Pearson came to K-State from New York City, where she was teaching at a school in Harlem. She taught many refugee students from South Sudan, which gained its independence in July 2011. When Pearson found it hard to connect with her students, she started contacting different nonprofit organizations that could give her some help or resources to overcome her problems in teaching the African kids. “I didn’t know how to teach them, I didn’t know what their background was,” she said. Pearson said that all of these children had a lot of outside influences affecting their ability to get an education. The South Sudanese experienced a long war and genocide, which made it unable to keep a vertical system of education. The literacy rate, especially among females, was very low. Most children could not even get access to a second grade education. Pearson said that the lack of an educational background was one of the reasons that Sudanese children struggled to learn in school and adjust to an academic environment after they came to the U.S. as refugees. “Only 1 percent of the population gets up to an eighth grade education,” Pearson said. “If you look at the statistics, Southern Sudan is much more desperate than northern. Northern has a lot of money but South Sudan has no money, no government system.” English, however, is the official language in South Sudan, while in

Alumni Center hosts ethics workshop Keelie Curran contributing writer Editor’s Note: This article was completed as an assignment for a class in the A.Q. Miller School of Journalism and Mass Communications. Mary Gentile, senior research scholar at Babson College in Wellesley, Mass., facilitated a workshop called “Giving Voice to Values” as a part of the ConocoPhillips Excellence in Business Ethics Initiative on Monday. The presentation took place in the K-State Alumni Center. Established in 2009, the Initiative has provided K-State students with resources to grow in leadership and self-development through lectures, applied workshops, case competitions and panel discussions that reach hundreds of students every year. The program of study was originally sponsored by funds from the Aspen Institute, an international nonprofit, and the Yale School of Management. Today, Gentile’s curriculum is funded by Babson College and the Toyota Company. Though originally designed for students obtaining a master’s

Gentile focused on how students can voice their values in the workplace. “Rehearsal is impor-

tant on impacting people’s behavior when teaching about ethics,” Gentile said. Jenna Scherer, senior in family studies and human services, attended the event as a requirement for her Ethical Dimensions of Leadership class. “My teacher thought it would be a good experience for us,” Scherer said. Scherer said ethics is a large part of what her class discusses and getting insight from an expert is helpful. According to Olivia Law-DelRosso, program coordinator of the Ethics and Responsible Citizenship Initiative and graduate student in counseling, Gentile has already met with several professors at K-State, and there are plans to incorporate this curriculum in leadership studies, business and philosophy classes, among many others. “The initiative is through the College of Business, but we always encourage students from every college to come join the events,” Law-DelRosso said. The workshop promoted socially responsible and

MEN’S BASKETBALL

MEN’S BASKETBALL

Phillips 66 All-Big 12 Men’s Three Wildcats earn All-Big 12 Honors Basketball Awards announced Athletes, coaches recieve Big 12 Conference regular season honors

NEWCOMER OF THE YEAR Royce White, Iowa State Forward

SIXTH MAN AWARD Michael Dixon, Missouri Guard

Jared Brown staff writer

PLAYER OF THE YEAR Thomas Robinson, Kansas Forward

The junior forward from Washington, D.C., averaged 18 points per game this season, a career best accompanied by his 11.9 rebounds per game. He led the conference in rebounding and has the Jayhawks ranked in the top five in the country. Kansas will be the No. 1 seed when the Big 12 Conference tournament kicks off, and if KU finishes strong, the Jayhawks will be looking at a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament as well. Robinson is also being considered as one of the leading candidates for NCAA Player of the Year.

DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR Jeff Withey, Kansas Center

White burst on the scene for the Cyclones in his sophomore season after transferring from the University of Minnesota. He led the team in several major categories. White averaged 12.9 points per game, grabbed 9.2 rebounds per game and dished out 5.2 assists per game. White is the main reason the Cyclones have won 20-plus games for the first time since 2004.

CO-FRESHMAN OF THE YEAR

CO-COACHES OF THE YEAR Fred Hoiberg, Iowa State

Quincy Miller, Baylor Forward

The Bears expected big things from Miller in his freshman season, and the 6-foot-9-inch big man didn’t disappoint. Miller started in all but three of Baylor’s games this season. He averaged 11.5 points per game and brought down five rebounds per game for the Bears. In a one-point loss against Missouri, Miller dropped a career-best 29 points.

Le’Bryan Nash, Oklahoma State Guard/Forward After Withey transferred from Arizona, Jayhawk fans had high hopes for the 7-foot big man, but this season Withey finally became the player Kansas fans expected him to be. The junior was a force around the rim, averaging 3.2 blocks per game to go along with 6.2 rebounds per game. Withey has flirted with tripledoubles on several occasions this season. Seven times this season, Withey had more than six blocks in a game. On Feb. 20, playing against Oklahoma State, Withey posted 20 rebounds, a career-high.

Dixon played big minutes in all of Missouri’s games this season, but started in none of them. Coming off the bench, the junior from Kansas City, Mo. averaged 13.3 points per game, ranking fourth on the team, along with 3.1 assists per game, ranking second on the team. Dixon was a top five free-throw shooter in the conference, shooting 89.5 percent from the charity stripe.

Senior forward Jamar Samuels leaps for a jump shot during the first half of Saturday’s 77-58 victory against Oklahoma State. Samuels was named an honorable mention All-Big 12 team member and was also named the Big 12 player of the week for the second time this season. Jared Brown staff writer

In his second season at Iowa State, Hoiberg coached the Cyclones to a 22-9 recond, the team’s best record since 2001. The Cyclones finished third in the Big 12 standings with a 12-6 record through Big 12 play, after being predicted to finish eighth in the preseason poll by the league’s head coaches. Hoiberg’s team is a three seed going into this week’s Big 12 tournament.

Bill Self, Kansas

On Sunday the Big 12 Conference league office announced its annual Phillips 66 All-Big 12 Men’s Basketball Awards for the regular season. Three Wildcats were recognized by the conference for their accomplishments during the season. Junior guard Rodney McGruder was selected to the All-Big 12 Second Team as well as the Big 12 All-Defensive Team. In his third season with the Wildcats, McGruder averaged 15.5 points per game, which is seventh in the conference. He also grabbed 5.4 rebounds per game, which ranks him in the top 15 in rebounding in the Big 12. This is the second straight season McGruder has earned All-Big 12 honors as last season he was selected to the third team. With the selection, McGruder becomes the seventh Wildcat in the

Defensively, it was McGruder’s responsibility to guard the opposition’s best player on most occasions. After leading the team in rebounding, with 6.8 per game, and double-doubles, with eight, senior forward Jamar Samuels earned allleague honors as he was selected to the All-Big 12 Honorable Mention team. Two times this season Samu-

K-State to face off against Nebraska Coming out of high school, Nash was a top prospect and a five-star recruit and in his freshman season for the Cowboys he showed why. Nash averaged 13.3 points per game, second on the team to Keiton Page, to go along with five rebounds per game, which was third on the team. Nash started in 23 games this season for the Cowboys.

Self ’s Jayhawks were picked in the preseason polls to win the Big 12 Conference by the coaches, and Kansas followed through with that prediction by going 16-2 in the conference and winning the regular season for the eighth straight season. Self has the Jayhawks seeking a one seed in the NCAA tournament and if Kansas wins the Big 12 tournament, that possibility will become a reality.

DDT ban enhances effectiveness for disease control Matt DeCapo

Recently, such terms as “ecofascism” and “ecoimperialism” have been used to attack the environmental movement, arguing that environmentalists of developed countries have been trying to force their green solutions on the developing world with disastrous consequences. While criticisms like this can be beneficial for movements to really analyze the effects of the policies they implement, many of these criticisms seem deliberately misleading and blatantly wrong. The main claim I will address in this column is the claim that environmentalists have caused genocide from malaria through their opposition to the widespread use of the pesticide DDT. It is true that DDT use decreased malaria rates all over the world upon its widespread adoption after World War II. The United Nations’ World Health Organization launched a worldwide attempt to eradicate malaria by spraying this chemical all over the world during the ‘50s and ‘60s. They had remarkable success at first, but the return of

malaria was not due to environmentalists banning the chemical. Insects have an amazing ability to adapt to new poisons in their environment. The insects that survive the poisons are able to reproduce and pass down their resistant genes to future generations. Agronomists all over the world know that the pesticides we use on crops become less effective over time and that it is best to have a wide variety of strategies to deal with pest problems rather than relying on a single chemical. According to a Feb. 17, 2005, article by Tim Lambert on scienceblogs.com, Sri Lanka used DDT to reduce malaria cases from around three million to just 17 in 1963. Many people thought that malaria had been controlled, so DDT use was cut mostly to save money. The number of cases of malaria went back up to hundreds of thousands in 1968. Sri Lanka resumed DDT use after this, but the chemical was not as effective anymore because many of the mosquitoes had developed resistances. Instead, they tried a pricier chemical called malathion, which had short-term success like DDT until the insects developed resistance to this as well.

The WHO tried their DDT strategy in Borneo as well, according to the AprilJune 2005 Association of Former WHO staff newsletter, resulting in unintended consequences that clearly demonstrate the interconnectedness of nature that must be considered before spraying pesticides. The death of most of the mosquitoes resulted in a large number of DDTcovered meals for the lizards on the islands, as noted in a Dec. 13, 2003, San Francisco Chronicle article by Richard Fagerlund. Since DDT is a fatsoluble, persistent organic chemical, it bio-accumulates as it works its way up the food chain. The cats that ate the lizards ended up getting high enough doses of DDT to cause their population to become greatly reduced. Then many

of the prey of the cats, especially rats, experienced a rapid, exponential growth in their population. Instead of the people of Borneo suffering from malaria, these rats threatened outbreaks of bubonic plague and other diseases. This predicament led to the widely circulated account of the WHO parachuting cats in to try to solve the rat problem they had created. According to a June 5, 2005, Washington Post article by May Berenbaum, head of the department of entomology at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, “Overselling a chemical’s capacity to solve a problem can do irretrievable harm not only by raising false hopes but by delaying the use of more effective long-term methods. So let’s drop the hyperbole and overblown rhetoric

— it’s not what Africa needs. What’s needed is a recognition of the problem’s complexity and a willingness to use every available weapon to fight disease in an informed and rational way.” Rachel Carson’s book “Silent Spring” got people to question the logic of spraying massive amounts of chemicals into the environment when we did not fully understand their effects on the ecosystems and human health. This led to the banning of DDT in the U.S. in 1972. It was not until the Stockholm Convention, effective starting May 2004, that DDT use was limited to disease vector control worldwide. Banning DDT except for disease control actually makes it more effective in controlling malaria because fewer insects will develop resistance.

Environmentalists never banned DDT as a weapon against malaria. The claim that environmentalists are causing genocide is completely false and counterproductive to solving this problem. If you search about this online, you will find anti-environmentalist websites citing the same statistics about malaria in Sri Lanka, but drawing a completely different conclusion by not telling you the full story. It is imperative that we try to understand the full complicated story behind environmental issues rather than believe many people’s incorrect interpretations of part of the story. We need constructive dialogues and actions from informed citizens if we ever want to end deaths from preventable diseases, among other problems.

It’s five minutes to midnight. Not literally, of course, but the Doomsday Clock, a theoretical clock face created and maintained by the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, now reads 11:55 p.m. Created in 1947, the Doomsday Clock tracks the progression of global issues - according to a Jan. 12 USA Today article by Doyle Rice, “the closer to a setting of midnight it gets, the closer it is estimated that a global disaster will occur.” Initially, the clock

read seven minutes to midnight, and the time has changed on 20 different occasions since that date. Nuclear issues, both treaties and bomb tests, often precipitate a time change, but recently, climate change has been added to the mix. When the clock moved this January, the time ticked one minute later, moving on from 2010’s 11:54 p.m. Among the reasons for the clock’s change earlier this year include the “ongoing threats from nuclear proliferation, climate change and the need to find sustainable and safe sources of energy,” according the USA Today article. The most recent time change, unfortunately, is a step backward. After the signing of the new

Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty between the U.S. and Russia in 2010 and “attempts to limit climate change,” the clock moved backward, from six minutes to midnight to five, as stated in the USA Today article. But why does the Doomsday Clock matter? It’s nothing real or tangible, just a symbol. Forward progress, meaning the clock’s time moved backward instead of forward, has occurred just eight times since the clock’s inception, according to the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists’ website. The website also notes the variety of incidents responsible for moving the clock’s hands from between its two current extremes, 17 minutes to midnight after the end of the Cold War, and two

minutes to midnight after U.S. and Soviet H-bomb tests in 1953. While a midnight reading on the clock does not absolutely indicate disasters of apocalyptic proportions, five minutes to midnight should simply feel too close for comfort. I believe that we should all be aware the current time of the Doomsday Clock, not because I want everyone to worry about impending nuclear disaster or death by greenhouse gases, or anything like that, but because I believe it is important to understand that the decisions we all make have global repercussions. When we, the public, vote for a new president, write to members of Congress or take any sort of political action, we need

to keep in mind what a precarious balance the world lies in. We need to understand the gravity of issues with the potential to affect the world; whether it is a president speaking of efforts to negotiate nuclear treaties or a report on the causes of climate change, we need to listen. We elect the politicians who make the decisions that change the world, so we owe it to ourselves to realize just how important those elections, and the decisions made by those elected actually are. The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists does not seem to feel as though the current political situation is promising. As noted in a Jan. 12 Washington Times article by Catherine Poe, a report

got memories? we do. royal purple yearbook

royal purple yearbook • 103 kedzie hall • 785-532-6555 • royalpurple.ksu.edu

by the group states: “In the face of such complex problems, it is difficult to see where the capacity lies to address these challenges. The political processes in place seem wholly inadequate to meet the challenges to human existence that we confront.” I believe that the Doomsday Clock serves as a reminder that although we may have made recent progress in nuclear and climate change issues, we are far from in the clear, and we, as a world, should be working constantly and diligently to remove, or at least lessen, the various threats to the safety of humanity.

UNITED | Pearson plans BASEBALL | Wildcats look for consistency, hits trip to Sudan Jan. 2013 Continued from page 1

Continued from page 1 North Sudan it is Arabic. Perarson said it makes it easier to communicate with locals, but also emphasized that the language did not have an impact on choosing South Sudan for her research. Pearson worked with Lotta Larson, assistant professor of curriculum and instruction, on her final project in a Leadership and Literacy class. Larson encouraged Pearson to write an article about literacy problems in South Sudan for the Global Studies of Childhood, an international journal that documents conditions of children around the world. Pearson worked with the organization Project Education Sudan, which was hired by the South Sudan Ministry of Education to understand the condition of education in the region. “She [Pearson] is very very motivated and she is super smart,” Larson said. Larson also said that it is not common to have these types of opportunities as an early doctoral student, who is still taking courses. Gail Shroyer, chair of the department of curriculum and instruction, said Pearson’s presentation brought honor and recognition to her department and college. Shroyer also said that although she knows of faculty who have been extended this

honor, Pearson is the first Ph.D. candidate she has known in the College of Education to be asked to testify before the U.N. “It is a testament to the high quality of our graduate students and our teacher education program,” Shroyer said. “Stephanie’s insights into the educational needs of children in Sudan also have application to our undergraduate teacher education program.” About six months ago Pearson went to South Sudan for the first time to personally see what the needs of local schools are firsthand. Next January, when the curriculum is set up, Pearson is going to South Sudan to implement the curriculum. As a part of a team, she will introduce curriculum to the government and will also visit villages to see how they can express this curriculum in the real world. “I feel more for the people of Sudan than anybody else,” Pearson said. “They are in desperate need. We have an opportunity here to help change lives.” Although her research has garnered her attention and recognition, Pearson said neither she nor her colleagues were involved in the study for the honors. “It wasn’t about recognizing ourselves, it wasn’t about recognizing universities,” she said. “It was about shining light on the people of Sudan.”

MBB| Players honored Continued from page 3 Junior forward Jordan Henriquez rounds out the all-conference selections for the Wildcats as he was also selected to the Big 12 All-Defensive Team. Henriquez is third on the team in rebounding at five rebounds per game. Only Jeff Withey of Kansas, who earned Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year honors, averaged more blocks than Henriquez, as J.O. averaged 2.3 blocks per game. With 136 blocks in his career, Henriquez is already the

school’s all-time leader in blocks. He has 24 blocks in the last six games, including a school record seven for a conference game against Iowa State on Feb. 25. It is the first time Henriquez has been recognized by the conference for all-league honors. The selection of Henriquez and McGruder to the All-Big 12 Defensive Team, it marks the third straight season in which at least one Wildcat has been named to the squad. Jacob Pullen was selected to the AllBig 12 Defensive Team in both 2010 and 2011.

Nebraska will start sophomore righty Jon Keller, who has a 1-0 record with a 4.61 ERA in three starts so far this year. He has allowed seven runs off 16 in 13.2 innings. His last start was on Saturday against New Mexico State, where he allowed four runs off four hits with two walks and a strikeout, lasting only 1.1 innings. He allowed two runs off six hits with a walk and four strikeouts in 5.1 innings against the Wildcats last year. Hill is looking to the Wildcats to play like they did Saturday and Sunday instead of what they showed Friday when they had some struggles on offense. “We had some guys worrying about not getting hits,” said Hill. “We’re just trying to get guys to settle down. Fifteen singles is just fine. We got more hit by pitches, and

W.A.R | ‘Don’t be WORKSHOP | Program afraid to get involved’ aims to teach awareness Continued from page 1 “I think it really showed the students that it doesn’t go away,” she said. “It’s not sex. It’s not like that at all. I think it’s hard for people to grasp that concept because they don’t understand the trauma. Obviously I don’t expect people to understand it but I expect them to respect it.” The event was a part of A Season for Nonviolence, a series of events that W.A.R. hosts between Jan. 30 and April 4. These dates are significant because they are the assassination dates of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, renowned Indian civil rights leader, and Martin Luther King Jr., leader in the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s. “We’re supporting those who spoke out,” said Dechant. “We’re trying to get the healing part out

there and show the events of trauma and the positive impact of it. It’s kind of a negative-positive thing.” Tebow concluded with some advice for those who might be afraid to share their story of violence and rape. “Don’t be afraid to get involved,” she said. “Don’t feel like it’s a secret. It’s something we should advocate.” W.A.R. also sponsors Darcy’s Run and the Run Against Rape, both of which bring awareness to the issue of sexual assault. Readings from “Purple Cried” will continue today from 12-1 p.m. in Bosco Student Plaza. Anyone interested in joining W.A.R. or interested in more information can contact Kaitlyn Dechant at kdecha01@ksu.edu or stop by the Women’s Center in 206 Holton Hall.

Continued from page 1 ethical behavior in the workplace through a curriculum at the college level. The College of Business is ranked by the Aspen Institute and was therefore put in touch with Gentile. Gentile, former professor at Harvard Business School, slowly began consulting other business schools. Gentile was recruited by Columbia University to help build a curriculum guide for their students. After asking Columbia University students a simple question about their ethical experiences in a working environment, her research on courage and altruism taught her that people who are able to voice values were able to do that with someone they looked up to at a younger age. The program’s purpose is to build awareness, teach analysis skills and focus on action. “Instead of asking ‘what is the right thing to do?’ we think we already know what to do,” Gentile

said. “We know you have values it is just sometimes hard to get that across in the workplace.” Professors teaching the curriculum touch on specifics that could be brought up in a place of work, such as intellectual property rights or privacy. “This is a good thing,” Gentile said. “We need to discipline our thinking.” The mission of the College of Business is to provide national leadership in the development of educational programs that prepare students for the ethical challenges in business. What is important for students, Gentile said, is that they are provided with the tools and practice. “Ethics are easy if they are black and white,” she said. “Yes, it is also easier in the classroom because it gives you the practice, so that when you are in a more high-pressure environment, you will already know what you are going to say.” Anyone interested in viewing materials for the ethics initiative can visit givingvoicetovalues.com.
