‘Obamacare’ benefits, drawbacks disputed Students cite cost, burden on medical community as trade-offs to extension of coverage to 26-year-olds Darrington Clark edge editor
the story of two lovers from Palestinian and Israeli families who run rival fast-food restaurants. Once this simplified and digestible version of IsraeliPalestinian conflict received an Oscar, Ron said it was screened all over the world, including Arab countries. “We got invitations from all over the world,” Ron said. “Even from Chechnya, in Russia.” The film also became a part of Ron’s project to bridge people through music he started in 2000. He said he travels the world with the Yuval Ron Ensemble visiting countries deep in war-torn regions and international conflicts. Through music, he strives to unite fighting sides and said the strategy of unification works. “Music is a great tool to unite people, because music is not verbal,” Ron said.
March 23, 2010, marked the official enactment of President Obama’s controversial Affordable Care Act. Now, nearly two years later, debate and discussion of “Obamacare” has not diminished. The Affordable Care Act allows young people to remain on their parents’ health care plans until age 26, but the nation is still weighing the pros and cons of mandatory health care as election season approaches. “What galled Republicans initially was the individual mandate,” said Linda Richter, professor emeritus of political science. “But individual mandate was originally a Republican-fostered idea and remains on the plan of many Republican candidates.” The buzz surrounding Obamacare began with debate over increased taxes and mandatory payments, but opponents soon switched tactics. People who opposed the bill claimed that Obamacare was not paying for itself and that continuing the bill would result in wasteful spending. “The United States spends nearly twice as much per capita as anywhere else,” Richter said. “Longevity rates had not been increasing, though. Essentially, we’re paying more and getting less.” Despite the cost, Richter said that extended health care for young people was something that citizens should be willing to contribute to. “I think it’s important for students who are in or out of college,” Richter said. “Students in college are staying longer. I think the average length of time students are at K-State is six years. Being able to stay on your parents’ health care until age 26 is very important.” The Affordable Care Act has impacted people nationwide. According to an April 2 nmpolitics. net article by Bill Jordan, over 20,000 young New Mexicans have taken advantage of the policy, receiving health care money that they would have otherwise been denied. K-State students also see the value in the Affordable Care Act. Steven Letourneau, freshman in open option, supports the bill. “I think it helps a lot of people who wouldn’t have help otherwise,” Letourneau said. “From a student perspective, I want it to stay. With all of the college loans you have to pay, staying on your parents’ health care is beneficial.” Other K-State students are more critical of the act. Cory Hendrickson, junior in political science, said he does not necessarily support the bill, but he sees what it is trying to achieve. “It’s trying, it’s really trying to be a good idea,” Hendrickson said. “It fails at achieving a lot of what we need, though.” Hendrickson’s concerns with the bill did not center on cost as much as additional stress on existing resources. “When the act finally goes into full effect, hospitals and care centers will fall under even larger strains than they have now,” Hendrickson said. “Those involved in the medical field, especially people who create medical devices, will have a large burden placed on their shoulders.” The Affordable Care Act does apply to Hendrickson, and he said he appreciates that.

Tanning can lead to cancer, but some people believe that moderation is key to preventing it. Kelly Becker, senior in theatre lighting design, said tanning can be beneficial. “Unless you’re tanning every day for 30 minutes at a time, it’s not going to hurt you,” Becker said. “I go once every few weeks during the summer to prevent sunburn.” Cassie Kerr 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. With the summer months around the corner and the days warming up, many students have started prepping for swimsuit season. One summer activity, tanning, may prove to have more lethal side effects than a bronzed skin tone. Skin cancer rates are currently on the rise, especially in people under the age of 40. Next time students lie in a tanning bed or neglect to put on sunscreen, they might want to think twice about the harm they are doing to their bodies. Aeriel Dodson, freshman in family studies, said she believes tanning has harmful effects and that there are other ways to keep skin healthy and looking good. “I think it is bad for you in the long run and the temporary benefits are
not worth it,” Dodson said about tanning. “I take a vitamin D supplement. I think people look better with what they’re born with and I am naturally fair-skinned; I do not ever want to

“I think [tanning] is bad for you in the long run and the temporary benefits are not worth it. ... I think people look better with what they’re born with and I am naturally fair skinned; I do not ever want to look orange.” Aeriel Dodson freshman in family studies look orange.” When asked what she thinks of people who tan, Dodson said she thinks the long-term effects of tanning make it an unwise decision. According to Mayo Clinic research, “an exposure to UV radiation, which comes from the sun and from tanning beds, can increase the risk of skin cancer, including melanoma.” In fact, tanning beds increase a
well. In addition, people with weakened immune systems are at a greater risk of developing skin cancer. The Mayo Clinic article pointed out many risk factors associated with melanoma and skin cancer. Having fair skin is one of the main factors; having less skin pigment means less protection from damaging UV rays. In addition, individuals with blond or red hair, light-colored eyes
and freckles tend to sunburn more easily than those with a darker complexion. However, people with darker complexions can be diagnosed with skin cancers as well. Aryn Sander, employee of Sun Connection tanning salon in Aggieville and junior in criminology and psychology, said the main reason she tans is not because of the employee discount, but because she likes to be tan all year round. Sander tans about twice a week. “I am not too worried about it,” she said. “If you are smart enough to know how long you can go in a bed for and knowing when to get out, your chances are not as high. The worst part is burning.” Calvin Jones, Manhattan resident, said he felt the same way and also tans twice a week. “I think I look better when I am tan,” Jones said. “For someone who has trouble with it, it can be bad. If you have the right skin for it, then there are no troubles I see in it.”

Split Lip Rayfield to Composer uses music, film perform at Wareham to unite people in conflict Jakki Thompson assistant news editor Split Lip Rayfield, a bluegrass metal band originally from Kansas, will perform in Manhattan at the Wareham Opera House at 410 Poyntz Ave. today at 8 p.m. “We used to play in Auntie Mae’s a lot while we used to play in town,” said Wayne Gottstine, one of the lead vocalists of Split Lip Rayfield. “But the crowds kept getting bigger and bigger so we had to move the venues. But we still love Auntie Mae’s.” Gottstine and Eric Mardis, the band’s banjo player, performed in many different bands before coming together with the late Kirk Rundstrom, one of the original founders of the band. The band’s newest member is Jeff Eaton, the band’s bassist. “We have never played at the Wareham before,” Gottstine said. “But we have a lot of good friends in Manhattan and we look forward to continuing to perform here.” The sounds of Split Lip Ray-
field are unique. On their website, the band describes themselves as their own genre of music, combining bluegrass and country with hints of metal. The band plays with some unique instruments as well; Eaton performs on a homemade bass made from a gas tank. “When you first see us on stage, most people initially think, ‘these dudes are pretty old,’” Gottstine said. “Then we continue to perform and you will think about the hightech ultrasonic bluegrass with a super shreddin’ mandolin, banjo and guitar.” The band’s music covers a wide variety of themes, with songs about everything from love, loss, change and dark powers, which Gottstine said creates an “aggressive acoustic performance” for everyone in the audience. “You can never tell what we are going to do at a show,” Gottstine said. “We will be performing new songs from the last time we performed in Manhattan. We are a unique experience.”
Oscar-winning film ‘West Bank Story’ deep, funny, ‘very brave’, audience members say Anton Trafimovich staff writer Yuval Ron, Israeli-born composer, brought two animated movies for which he wrote the score to the Beach Museum of Art on Wednesday night. Ron said he believes that music helps unite people regardless of their nationality and religion. Ron is well-known both for writing music and creating short films, as well as writing and arranging music for live performances given by the Yuval Ron Ensemble worldwide. During his two-day stay at K-State, Ron is sharing both aspects of his occupation. After presenting two short documentaries on Wednesday night, he will present some of
his original compositions in a concert, which will take place tonight in McCain Auditorium at 7:30. Tickets are free and available in ticket offices. Both movies screened in the Beach Museum of Art
“People tend to come together around music.” Yuval Ron Composer, filmmaker on Wednesday are significant, Ron said. “Proteus” is a documentary portraying the life and work of biologist and artist Ernst Haeckel. The second film is called “West Bank Story,” a 22minute musical movie that won an Oscar in 2007, which Ron said was his greatest career accomplishment. Although the movie starts off lightheartedly and establishes a humorous background, the plot becomes serious as it tells

Professors: foreign languages valuable in workplace Jena Sauber staff writer For students who want to learn more of a foreign language than “burrito,” “hors d’oeuvre” or “karate,” the department of modern languages at K-State offers a wide variety of classes from beginner to advanced levels. The classes are designed to help students learn a new language, prepare for trips abroad, advance in the career world, or simply acquire a new understanding of their culture and the cultures of other countries. “It’s a wonderful opportunity to learn about yourself, how you think and where you live, and about the history, art and literature in other cultures,” said Melinda Cro, French language program coordinator. “You can learn a great deal about how another culture perceives something by learning their language,” Cro said. The department of modern languages offers classes in Arabic, Chinese, Czech, French, German, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Latin, Russian and Spanish. The department offers minors in all offered languages except Arabic, Czech, Hindi and Latin. It also has bachelor’s and master’s programs in French, German and Spanish. Master’s degrees are also available in teaching English as a foreign language.

While each program teaches a different language, there are many similar benefits of learning a foreign language, said Mary Copple, Spanish language program coordinator. “The linguistic value of just seeing how another language works allows you to better understand your own,” Copple said. “It allows you to communicate with an entirely new group of people.” In addition, many of the classes include cultural information about countries where people speak the language. This foreign culture knowledge can be beneficial to students in a variety of ways, Copple said. “Learning about the cultures of different people around the world is beneficial and can help you in re-examining your own culture and realizing how many of your daily behaviors are driven by established cultural norms,” Copple said. While the department of modern languages offers more sessions of Spanish than other languages, all secondary languages have value in the workplace, depending on how a student chooses to use the secondary language, Copple said. “It really depends on the field of a student’s future profession and where it might lead them,” she said. “We have students on campus who study Hindi, and that might not occur to you as a primary language you want
to study, but if you are going to come into contact with those who do due to your professional goal, it’s very valuable to you.” Cro agreed that learning a foreign language can help students when they venture into the professional world. “Learning a foreign language is about learning about the culture and opening your mind to a new experience,” Cro said. “The more that we are open to other cultures and languages, the more we know, the easier our job becomes to create those bridges with someone else. That’s a quality and skills that are required in any type of job, no matter where you are.” According to the 2009 American Community Survey conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau, approximately 228.7 million people over the age of 5 speak only English at home. Approximately 35.5 million people over the age of 5 speak Spanish or Spanish Creole at home, making it the second largest category. In addition, learning a foreign language can make world travel easier, Cro said. This is especially true for Anne Sisley, sophomore in English and Spanish. Sisley said she hopes to use her Spanish language knowledge to help her in her travels some day. “I know I for sure would like to travel,” Sisley said. “So
I will definitely use Spanish in that way, hopefully traveling to Spanish-speaking countries. I would really like to do some sort of translation or interpretation.” Sisley said she became interested in learning Spanish during high school.

Senior starter hopes to lead team to fourth straight postseason Spencer Low staff writer From 2009 to 2011, the K-State baseball team made three straight appearances in the NCAA regional tournament. Before 2009, K-State had never appeared in the postseason for NCAA baseball. A senior this year, starting pitcher Matt Applegate was a member of all three of those teams and a key component to this year’s chances of making a fourth straight appearance in the postseason. So far this season, Applegate is 2-3 with a 5.14 ERA and is serving as K-State’s No. 1 starter every Friday, the first game in almost every series. In seven starts, he has pitched 42 innings with 37 strikeouts, both of which lead the team. “My last couple starts have been better,” Applegate said of his performance this season on the mound. “I struggled early, wasn’t able to throw together a couple starts in a row, but I’m able to build off a couple and I think I can keep going from that.” If Applegate chooses any starts to build from, last Friday’s would be a good one, as he threw his first complete game of the season, an eightinning performance in a Wildcat loss against Oklahoma. Applegate allowed five runs — only three were earned — off seven hits with five strikeouts and four walks. With the team at 14-14 and about halfway through the season, Applegate will need to continue to build off his success, starting tonight in the series opener against Sacred Heart in Manhattan. “I’m going to go out and just continue to throw strikes and not try to do too much and just try to give us a chance to win,” he said. When it comes down to K-State’s push to make the postseason, leadership will be critical. Strong leadership, especially from seniors, can help the Wildcats work together to perform at the top of their game,

Matt Applegate delivers a pitch during Tuesday’s game against Nebraska. Applegate, a senior from Wichita, is the baseball team’s Friday starter. Applegate said. “Yeah, I’d say [I am] looked at by the younger guys as a leader,” said Applegate about being a senior on the pitching staff. “I should be able to go out and throw more innings than the other guys. I’ve been in places that I should be able to learn from, from earlier years and earlier this year, and be able to help them and help the team come out and pitch to the best of our ability.” Applegate said he has seen some good pitchers take the mound in purple and white during his time here, especially A.J. Morris, who
was drafted in the fourth round of the 2009 MLB Draft by the Washington Nationals. “They all have their characteristics that are different,” he said, adding that Morris’ “ability to go out and be himself everyday” was a strong influence on him. Applegate said that one of the biggest lessons he learned from Morris was to be himself and go out every week and repeat what his performance on the mound. Morris seemed to have endless consistency, something that Applegate tries to do as well.
K-State opens home series tonight John Zetmeir staff writer Coming off the team’s worst performance of the year, the Wildcats will look to bounce back against Sacred Heart as they start their three-game home series. K-State (14-14, 3-6 Big 12 Conference) will take on Sacred Heart (10-6, 7-5 Northeast Conference) at Tointon Family Stadium at 6:30 p.m. today. The Wildcats come into the series on a bit of a slump, winning only two of their last 10 games, including a shut-out loss to the hands of Nebraska on Tuesday night at home. The
Pioneers, however, come into the series as winners of seven of their last 10 games. Home field advantage could play a big role in the series. Even though the Wildcats have lost their last two games at home, they hold a home record of 7-4 in front of their home crowd so far this season, while Sacred Heart has a record of 1-7 on the road. K-State cannot overlook Sacred Heart’s bad luck on the road. Sacred Heart is hitting .278 as a team while allowing opponents an average of .300. The Pioneers are led by junior infielder John Murphy, who is hit-
ting .347 with 13 RBIs and one home run. The Wildcats will need to get the bats going in the series after scoring a total of three runs in their last two games. Sophomore outfielder Jared King has been leading the Wildcats so far this season hitting .379 with 17 RBIs and three home runs. Another Wildcat who will have to step up is senior infielder Wade Hinkle. Hinkle is leading the Wildcats with 29 RBIs and five home runs, but only has one hit in his last three games. The game can be aired on KMAN-AM 1350, as well as broadcast on K-State HD.
Home match provides chance to recover Haley Rose staff writer The Wildcats will take on the Wichita Shockers at 1 this afternoon at the Wamego Recreation Complex in their ninth straight match against a ranked opponent. Fresh off a two-match loss last weekend, the Wildcats look to improve their 21-19 series record against the Shockers, who are ranked No. 65 among NCAA Division I schools, while simultaneously ending a five-match losing streak. The most recent meeting between the schools went to K-State on March 6, who
won 4-3 in Hutchinson, Kan. The last time the Wildcats faced the Shockers in Wamego was in February 2010, where the shockers won 4-3, making K-State’s total record against Wichita 10-8 at home. A certain amount of focus will be on NCAA No. 32ranked sophomore Petra Niedermayerova during the match, as she has won 12 of her last 16 matches and fared well against Texas and Texas A&M last weekend. With an 18-11 record this season and 42-21 overall, she is ranked as the Wildcats’ No. 1 player. Another player to keep an
eye on is also coming off of a win from last weekend. KState’s No. 2 singles player, Karla Bonacic, tallied her 50th career singles win against Texas A&M on March 30 and is aiming to improve upon her 12-5 season record. Bonacic and Niedermayerova comprise the Wildcat’s No. 1 doubles team, which also saw victory in Texas last weekend. Next up for the team is a return to the road from April 13 and 15, where the Wildcats will return to Big 12 play and face opponents Iowa State on April 13 and Missouri on April 15.

Applegate has been helped this year by a strong offense, which has kept some of the pressure off him and allowed him to take the mound and keep making his pitches. If he goes out and gives up a run or two early, he can stay confident and trust that the offense will pick him up. A strong offense gives him the chance to just be himself on the mound and try and get deep into games. “I think my best pitch is my fastball, but I think my out pitch would be my slider. When I have them both going, they can equally be as productive and great,” Apple-
gate said. “I feel confident in even my changeup, to throw that in any count. I really think that that’s going to help me throughout this year to get deeper in games and be more consistent.” If K-State’s Friday starter can continue pitching like he did last Friday, the team will be in much better position to make a push for the postseason in the second half of the season. Graduating from KState as a member of all four regional qualifying teams would no doubt provide a satisfying end to this senior’s Wildcat career.

10 items you should Museum hosts TV show screenings before premiere not wear to class Norma Dunning staff writer
Brittany Stevens It takes approximately 30 seconds for someone to give you the once-over, a curt, flitting glance and make a judgment about the person you are. Shallow? Unfair? Judgmental? Yes. But it’s the cold truth: appearance matters. College men and women have a record of repeat fashion offenses. Many of the styles should only be worn in the privacy of one’s dorm room — if braved in the light of campus at all. Jorts Denim is a staple of the American wardrobe and is always on trend, yet it, too, can go wrong. “Jorts” is a pejorative term for men’s jean shorts. A pair of kneelength — sometimes at their worst — cut-off shorts is Dad’s unflattering counterpart to Mom’s high-waisted, tapered-leg mom jeans. Jorts are sometimes paired with a cell phone case clipped to the waistband as an accessory, which has not been cool since beepers were. Sleepwear Nothing says effort like showing up to class in a pair of pajama pants still wrinkly from sleeping in them the night before. If you want to pay homage to a favorite cartoon character by wearing their mugs from head-to-toe, it is best to do so in the privacy of your home — when sleeping. Lacy, silky sleepwear also has no place in the classroom; enough said. And, unless you’re Snooki, slippers are inappropriate for public, possibly even unhygienic. Utilitarian footwear As much you might enjoy the freedom of wriggling your toes by wearing sandals whilst still having the power to climate control them with socks, the practicality is a fashion faux pas for the record books. Crocs, a plastic foam clog, are a blunder, too. Jibbitz, the decorative clip-ins for the shoe’s swiss cheese-esque ventilation holes, compound the adverse effects of the shoe — unless, of course, the wearer is younger than 10 years old. Time magazine was on to something when it declared Crocs one of “The 50 Worst Inventions” in 2010. Impractical footwear As with every spring, a legion of Ugg boot aficionadas attempt to magically merge the seasons. From top to bottom, they dress for
spring weather, but instead of pairing an ensemble with a sandal, they opt for the sheepskin-lined Ugg. Sweaty feet are not the fashion statement you want to make. Just the same, hobbling up the hill by Waters Hall can leave anyone breathless, but doing so in spike heels? Even worse. Keep the pumps for anywhere but treks across campus. Bathing suits Kansas is 780 miles from the nearest beach; bikinis and swim trunks should not be in your everyday wardrobe. Fanny packs “Look ma, no hands.” Disguised today as hipster “waist” or “lumbar” packs by popular brands, any bag slung around the hips is just too reminiscent of its late1980s ancestor. Leggings as pants Leggings as pants need not disappear, but they do need a style revamp, to the dismay of college men everywhere. Wearing body-hugging leggings as pants can produce unwelcomed visible panty lines and leave nothing back there to mystery. Instead of wearing leggings with a T-shirt that hits at the hip, pair them with their predestined complements: a thigh-skimming tunic or a dress. Extremely low-rise jeans For ladies and gentlemen alike, low-rise jeans either display unmentionables that should remain, well, unmentionable, or worse, expose cleavage in the wrong places. Try giving jeans the sit test before buying. Clubbing attire If it is made of pleather, has sequins or glitter, or is transparent or cropped, reserve the garment for going out on the town; class is not the place to bring the party. Unkempt look Grunge fashion was popular in the 1990s, but the look was purposeful. Today, bed head and dirty, holey clothes put together in disheveled outfits are no longer considered “in,” but unkempt. If not for yourself, look polished to show respect for professors and the learning environment. Dressing with even minimal effort makes the impression a student takes their education seriously. Clothing has a bearing on state of mind. How we feel can mirror how we look. Taking pride in appearance can make an impact on others — if only in 30 seconds.

What is art? Art includes many media, from paints and sculptures to photography. In the TV series “Art in the Twenty-First Century,” artists proficient in different techniques and from different parts of the world tell their story about how their artwork influences them and the world around them. “Art in the Twenty-First Century” is in its sixth season and K-State art students had the opportunity to view a screening of an episode before the premiere on PBS on April 13. “The Beach [Museum of Art] is a designated site for screening new Art21 releases,” said Linda Duke, director of the museum. “We are delighted to share that opportunity with the department of art.” On April 3, during their usual class, the students of Art Career Seminar had the opportunity to view “Changes,” one of the four
Anton Trafimovich staff writer Arora Gustafsdottir is a very sArora Gustafsdottir is a very special international student. She is 45. She was working as a crisis manager in Iceland until 2011. In late August, she ended up in Kansas. Now she studies art history at K-State, while her husband Spessi Hallbjornsson, 56, works on his documentary about American motorcycle culture and their daughter Saga, 9, goes to Lee Elementary School. Neither Gustafsdottir nor her husband planned to come to Manhattan, but it was a variety of circumstances and Spessi’s dream to make a documentary in the United States that drove them to the U.S. “I needed to stay here to work on my motorcycle documentary,” Hallbjornsson said. Eventually, they found the solution that worked for everyone. Gustafsdottir, tired of her stressful job in crisis management, quit and entered an art program at the University of Iceland. Then she applied for an exchange program in the U.S. Gustafsdottir decided to get a degree in the arts, as she has been fascinated with it for a long time. Once she completes her degree, she is going to combine her art education and business experience and run an art-residency, which is the organizing of temporary accommodation for artists who are seeking inspirational places to stay and work. “I’m open to suggestions. I’ll just go where it takes me,” Gustafsdottir said. “I’m not worried about the future.” Although both Gustafsdottir and Hallbjornsson had visited the U.S. several times before they came to Manhattan last fall, the “Kansas experience” was totally new for them. On one hand, after cold Iceland, where the average summer temperature is lower than 60 degrees Fahren-

“The Beach [Museum of Art] is a designated site for screening new Art21 releases. We are delighted to share that opportunity with the department of art.” Linda Duke director, Beach Museum of Art the feature artists was a visiting artist. “We are especially pleased that one of the artists featured in the April 26 screening is represented in our collection,” Schlageck said. “Lynda Benglis was a visiting artist at K-State
in the 1970s. The work she produced, called ‘Phantom,’ has recently been loaned to museums across the country, including New York City and Los Angeles, as part of a large show of her work.” “Art in the Twenty-First Century” gives artists a chance to explain why they do what they do to a larger audience. “I go over that same little shadow over and over again until I get that shape. It has a character. It has some kind of little curly Q there where that rock sticks out and you’ve got to get that curly Q and you aren’t satisfied until you get it,” said artist Rackstraw Downes in the preview for “Art in the TwentyFirst Century” season six. For those who attend the screening, there are other reasons to have such a program. “I think they are an enjoyable way for students, faculty members, the wider community, to access the ideas and values of contemporary artists,” Duke said.
Icelandic family finds life in Manhattan ‘different’
segments in this season. “’Changes’ features artists dealing with the world in flux — cultural, material and aesthetic transformation,” said Kathrine Schlageck, senior curator at the museum. This episode consisted of three artists — Ai Weiwei, El Anatsui and Catherine Opie. El Anatsui talked about why change was important within his work and when each piece is put into a different exhibit, though it was the same materials, it changed. For Ai Weiwei, Art21 was restricted to interviewing him only about his art because of issues with his release from prison. Ai explained that he became an artist because he had the choice to become a farmer, warrior or worker, or he could become an artist. Since his father was a poet, he became an artist. Though Tuesday’s screening only consisted of “Changes,” another part, “Boundaries,” will be shown on April 26. “The theme of ‘Boundaries’

heit, they enjoyed Kansas’ mild climate. On the other hand, it was hard to get used to the city layout, which is very different from a traditional Icelandic one. “In the place we lived in Reykjavik, I could walk to at least three groceries and a bookstore. But here it is different. You live in one place, but to shop and eat out you have to go to other places,” Gustafsdottir said. Hallbjornsson is very concerned about the viability of small businesses in Manhattan. To his mind, putting the city shopping center in the end of Poyntz Avenue undermines all small businesses in the town. “The mall just takes every-

The couple also dislikes that a significant part of the town is settled by temporary residents. That’s why so many houses do not look homey. “There are two permanent residents in our street,” Gustafsdottir said. “An old lady on one side and an old lady on the other side. All others are students. They just come and go.” Gustafsdottir, however, has found some benefits of living in a college town and discovered several coffee shops with bold
coffee. As for food, the family doesn’t cook traditional Icelandic food at home. The couple said Icelandic cuisine is usually greasy and consists mostly of various meat entrails, but because the entire family is vegetarian, they cannot eat it. Gustafsdottir and Hallbjornsson said that Iceland is very Americanized. Like American society, Icelandic society tends to be consumer-driven. It is also common to have two to three cars in a family. Hummers and Land Rovers are as popular there as in America. The only difference, Gustafsdottir said, is that Icelandic drivers use cars mostly to hide from nasty weather. When it rains, for example, strong winds do not allow the rain to fall straight down, but sideways. “Icelanders use cars as a coat,” Gustafsdottir said. As parents of 9-year-old Saga (three more older children live in Iceland on their own), Gustafsdottir and Hallbjornsson learned about American parent-child
relationships. First, they found schools here are stricter and the individual discipline requirement is higher than in Iceland. Meanwhile, children in Iceland are more independent and have more freedom. For instance, Saga always goes to and from school by herself, while in the United States parents tend to take their children to school by car. What American kids of Saga’s age can’t do is to arrange meetings with friends. “Here you need to arrange it with parents. Then you need to take her by car,” Hallbjornsson said. In the end of May, when Saga finishes school, all the family will go back to Iceland. Hallbjornsson is expected to continue work on his documentary and Gustafsdottir will finish her degree in the fall. But what is next, no one knows yet. The family reiterated that it is important not to stay in the box and be ready to go where life takes them. “Take the step in the unknown to see what happens,” Hallbjornsson said.

LANGUAGE | Program about ‘personalized experience,’ not perfection Continued from page 3 “I just really enjoyed Spanish. Whenever it got frustrating, I would push through it because I really wanted to learn it,” Sisley said. “I also just enjoy the idea of learning a different language in general. I think it is very useful.” Students taking foreign language classes will experience a classroom very different from common lecture-style classes, Cro said. “When a student enters the classroom, they are kind of thrown into the waters of the classroom. We don’t speak English with them. You may take a few minutes to answer some questions in English, but overall it’s immersion,” Cro said. “We follow the communicative theories that place an emphasis on communication. We have to use the language in the classroom because where else are they going to learn it?” While language classes are often completely English-free, Cro stressed that students should not be intimidated from taking courses. Perfection is often not the goal, Cro said. “We know how hard it can be it, but we also know how important it is. If they don’t do it perfectly, that’s not the point,”

Cro said. “The point is to make them understood. That’s hard because students always want to do their best.” Cro said that although students might want to achieve
perfection, sometimes the more important lesson is using critical learning skills to adapt to difficult situations. There are many foreign language classes offered at different
skill levels, so students should not be afraid of being in classes that are too advanced, Cro said. She encouraged students who are considering enrolling in a foreign language class to gather
more information. “If they are on the edge, come and find us; we are more than happy to help them,” she said. “We will work with them to give them a personalized
experience and help them find where they fit into the program.” For more information, visit k-state.edu/mlangs or visit Eisenhower Hall, room 104.
City Commission names Blue Earth CARE | Act ‘saves’ some students Plaza in honor of Kansa Nation Continued from page 1
Elizabeth Hughes staff writer This article is the first part of a two-part series. The Blue Earth Plaza, a park located just south of the Flint Hills Discovery Center, is intended to spark awareness among the local community. Manhattan City Commissioners hope the name of this one-acre park will educate residents about Native American history in Kansas and honor the Kansa Indian tribe. Lauren Ritterbush, associate professor of archaeology, said the Blue Earth Plaza is derived from the Kansa, or Kaw, Blue Earth Lodges that were once located along the Blue River from the late 1700s until 1825. The Sunflower State was named after the Kansa tribe, who was the group of Native Americans nearest to present-day Manhattan. “I think naming the park Blue Earth Plaza will start to intrigue people and make them wonder,” Ritterbush said. “Hopefully, it will raise questions about the meaning behind Blue Earth. I think it’s appropriate that it’s right there next to the Flint Hills Discovery Center because, although many people think the Discovery Center is mostly about the prairie and the ecology, it’s also tied into the way people inhabited and survived in the Flint Hills.” Jim Sherow, mayor of Manhattan and professor in history at K-State, said he knew the Kansa Indians were working to establish a presence in the state of Kansas. The tribe began by purchasing land near the Kaw Mission in Council Grove, Kan. He said they were seeking to further that progress by recognizing their roots in the Manhattan area, which resulted in the naming of the Blue Earth Plaza. “I opened up a dialogue with the Kaw Nation and its representatives and we worked out arrangements for the name,” Sherow said. “They’re very excited about it. Consider how they might feel. There is an entire state
north of them named after their tribe, yet hardly anyone knows about them. The whole goal is to bring awareness to the Manhattan community.” The Kansa tribe migrated to the Manhattan area from their initial settlement along the Missouri River near today’s St. Joseph, Mo. Unlike the Wyandot, the Delaware, the Shawnee, the Potawatomi, and the Kickapoo, the Kansa Indians were not forced into Kansas territory by EuroAmerican settlement. Ritterbush said it was the tribe’s own decision to establish themselves along the Blue River, perhaps due to other tribes moving into their territory or the migration of the bison herds they hunted. “When the Kansa were living here around Manhattan, they were living in a village, very tight-knit, not too different than us,” Ritterbush said. “The density of people in one area is what I think we can relate to. I use the word ‘village’ because while it did have hundreds of people in it, all of the buildings were residential.” She said the type of housing was called an earth village due because of the dome-like top that resembled an earthen mound. The lodges were built of wooden framework filled with grasses and sod and included an opening in the center of the roof for smoke to escape. Ritterbush said she believes the Kansa naturally progressed to the well-insulated earth lodge in order to withstand the freezing winters and sweltering summers. The Blue Earth village consisted of more than 100 lodges, each with the capacity to house between five and 10 people. According to author William Unrau in his 1991 book, “Indians of Kansas: The Euro-American Invasion and Conquest of Indian Kansas,” three to five families resided in an earth lodge. Each included a central fireplace, no individual rooms and wood shelving to store food and personal possessions. Fall and spring bison hunting in the High Plains was a vital part of the
Kansa economy. Ritterbush said they also relied heavily on their village gardens and raised crops like squash, corn, beans and sunflowers. Few regions in the nation, according to Unrau, had a more diverse Indian population than Kansas. They provided the names for the state’s three largest cities: Wichita, Topeka and Kansas City. Seventeen of the current 105 counties have Indian names. As stated by Unrau, today the largest number of Native Americans reside in the Wichita metropolitan area, followed by the Lawrence, Topeka and Kansas City areas. Ritterbush said in terms of Native American population, Kansas has three reservations where the Sac and Fox, the Kickapoo and the Potawatomi nations live. According to Unrau, an increasing number of Native Americans are attempting to retain or learn their traditional language. Traditional cooking, weaving, beadwork and painting are also becoming popular again in recent years. Georgia Perez, staff adviser for the Native American Student Association, is a firm believer in the continuation of Native American traditions. NASA is a student organization that strives to promote diversity at K-State and unity among the Native American population on campus. Perez said the organization helps students research their Native American ancestry and promotes traditional Native American cuisine and crafts, such as dream catchers, pine needle baskets, loom beading and beading on leather and baskets at past meetings. “It’s a way to get together and celebrate and continue our heritage,” Perez said. “My grandmother taught me to bead when I was 3 years old. By age 5 I was crocheting, and now I’m making moccasins and clothes. I like to share that with the students, but also learn from them and increase my own knowledge. I think it’s always good to know your history and what’s out there.”

“I’m not going to act like I’m not grateful,” Hendrickson said. “I will happily stay on my parents’ health care. It’s really a great deal for students, especially with rising tuition costs. I haven’t had to go to the hospital for six years, but I see how it could really help.” Students at K-State aren’t the only people to find fault in the Affordable Care Act. Obamacare has been refuted by several Republicans and was most recently called out by Mitt Romney, Republican presidential candidate. Romney described the act as “an unfolding disaster,” according to an April 2 article by Daniel J. Stone in The Sacramento Bee. Romney, as well as fellow Republican candidates Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich, have all claimed they will repeal the bill if elected. “As far as money, we don’t really gain or lose anything,” Hendrickson said. “The full effects of the bill won’t be felt until
somewhere around 2014. That gives a president or the Supreme Court enough time to repeal it, if they feel like it’s a waste of money.” Richter, however, said she
”At K-State, we have so many students who are disabled or have illnesses. Things like that would make them ineligible for health care after graduation. This act saves them.” Linda Richter professor of political science doesn’t see the problem with cost. “An administrative take to health care is costing nearly onetenth less than the cost of private facilities,” Richter said. The debate continually surrounding Obamacare and the Affordable Care Act has de-
terred many citizens from becoming involved or invested in the act itself. Hendrickson said the lack of compromise is why the act is so heavily persecuted. “If anything, this shows that our country really is divided,” Hendrickson said. “We really aren’t a country undivided. There’s no give and take, which is what we need to be successful.” Regardless of the debate, the Affordable Care Act has made a considerable difference in the lives of citizens as well as college students, Richter said. “At K-State, we have so many students who are disabled or have illnesses,” she said. “Things like that would make them ineligible for health care after graduation. This act saves them.” Opinions on the bill aside, Richter believes that something should be done to help those students. “A part of our constitution calls for providing to the general welfare. I just don’t see that as an onerous obligation,” Richter said.

Tornadoes overwhelm northern Texas: destruction ‘was very surreal’ Daniel C. Houston The Lariat, Baylor U via UWIRE Tornadoes and violent storms raked through the Dallas area Tuesday, crumbling the wing of a nursing home, peeling roofs from dozens of homes and spiraling big-rig trailers into the air like footballs. More than a dozen injuries were reported. Overturned cars left streets unnavigable and flattened trucks clogged highway shoulders. Preliminary estimates were that six to 12 tornadoes had touched down in northern Texas, senior National Weather Service meteorologist Eric Martello said. In suburban Dallas, Lancaster Police officer Paul Beck said 10 people were injured, two of them severely. Three people were injured in Arlington, including two residents of a nursing home who were taken to a hospital with minor injuries after swirling winds clipped the building, city assistant fire chief Jim Self said. Arlington resident Ashley Sewell, 2006 Baylor graduate and self-described weather enthusiast, told the Lariat the storms caused significant property damage in her neighborhood, including an office building in which she used to work. “It was very surreal,” Sewell said, “but what was even more strange is that this is my neighborhood, this is where I live, and just to see people I know coming out and surveying the damage [to their homes] is very strange.” Sewell heard about the storms around noon Tuesday and took shelter in her Arlington home. After the storm passed around 4 p.m., she went outside to see for herself the impact the storm had on the area. She was greeted by broken windows, flipped Dumpsters and cars without windshields. “Essentially the most shocking thing was the huge trees that had been torn apart,” Sewell said. “Some of them

[were] uprooted, some of them snapped in half, and they were strewn across the street.” The storm pushed cars into fences and toppled trees. Branches and limbs scattered across lawns and residential streets, and in one driveway, a tow-behind RV was left torn apart and crumpled. “Obviously we’re going to have a lot of assessments to make when this is done,” Dallas County spokeswoman
Maria Arita said. Istiaque Ahmed, sophomore at the University of Texas at Arlington and personal friend of Baylor sophomore Rachel Miller, said he saw large motor homes flying through the air as he was driving in Arlington. “It was kind of breathtaking because I had never seen anything like that before,” Ahmed said. “I had lived in Texas all my life; I had seen tornadoes before. But it was still crazy
because I had never seen [vehicles in the air]. It was definitely one of the worst tornadoes I had ever seen.” The confirmed tornadoes touched down near Royce City and Silver Springs, said National Weather Service meteorologist Matt Bishop. A tornado watch remained in effect until 8 p.m. Most of Dallas was spared the full wrath of the storm. Yet in Lancaster, television
helicopters panned over exposed homes without roofs and flattened buildings. Broken sheets of plywood blanketed lawns and covered rooftops. American Airlines canceled more than 450 arriving and departing flights at it hub airport by late Tuesday afternoon, and 37 other incoming flights had been diverted to different airports. DFW Airport spokesman David Magana said more than

110 planes were damaged by hail. It wasn’t clear how many belonged to American Airlines, but American and American Eagle had pulled 101 planes out of service for hail-damage inspections. Flights also were canceled at Dallas Love Field, which is a big base for Southwest Airlines. That airline canceled more than 45 flights in and out of the airport by Tuesday evening.

Dorm life: no work, all FILM | Group performed fun delays graduation in Turkey, Korean DMZ
TAN | Risk of sunburn greatest in afternoon Continued from page 1 However, there are many ways to prevent melanoma and other types of skin cancer. One method is to avoid midday sun when the ultraviolet rays are at their strongest. For most areas, this is between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., according to the Environmental Protection Agency’s SunWise Program. When outside, wearing sunscreen and protective clothing can help prevent sunburn. Using a high SPF sunscreen and applying sunscreen 20 to 30 minutes before exposure in the sun can also reduce the chances of sunburn.
Continued from page 1
Other methods to reduce risk of sunburn and skin cancer include wearing tight woven clothing, sunglasses and a baseball cap or visor while exposed to direct sunlight. Lastly, avoiding tanning beds can also significantly reduce the risk of skin cancer. Tanning beds release radiation which highly increases risks of contracting skin cancer. Becoming familiar with one’s own skin can also decrease chances of skin cancer. Anyone noticing anything unusual, such as raised or discolored moles, should consult a skin care specialist as soon as possible.
In 2005, Ron said the South Korean government asked the Yuval Ron Ensemble to perform in the demilitarized zone right on the border between North and South Korea. The ensemble has also performed in other countries, like Morocco and Turkey, which are still suffering from ethnic conflicts. Ron said music is also a great tool that can help people overcome prejudice. While Armenians, for example, are forbidden to play Turkish music, one of his musicians, who is Armenian, plays it anyway, he said. “People tend to come together around music,” Ron said. In the future, Ron said he wants to continue working in this direction and expand the reach of his music so he can influence a wider audience. He said he plans to collabo-
UVA, UVB protection important in sunlight Monika Fallon U. Virginia via UWIRE With summer just around the corner and everyone anxious to jump into bathing suits and sundresses, a recent Mayo Clinic population-based study that found a rise in melanoma cases in young adults, especially in women, raises concerns. “Melanoma, the most serious type of skin cancer, develops in the cells that produce melanin — the pigment that gives your skin its color,” according to the Mayo Clinic website. The risk for melanoma increases with exposure to ultraviolet light from tanning beds and direct sunlight, as well as close family history of melanoma and exposure to certain chemicals or radiation. From 1970 to 2009, patients between the ages of 18 and 39 were checked for “first-time diagnoses of melanoma.” The study found a fourfold increase in young men and an eightfold increase in young women. Researchers believed the rise in melanoma cases could be a result of the increased use of indoor tanning beds. The important thing for young adults — especially college students — to remember about decreasing their risk for melanoma is that coverage is key, whether that involves clothing, a wide-brimmed hat or sunscreen. PubMed Health, a website managed by the U.S. National Library of Medicine, said initial
symptoms of melanoma can be a simple mole or sore on the skin, and can be diagnosed and removed quickly by a dermatologist if spotted early. The website also provides the useful acronym ABCDE for self-diagnosis for people who are unsure about a recentlyemerged skin abnormality. A stands for asymmetry, simple enough to remember and even easier to check for: merely look at the mole or lesion and judge whether one side is significantly different from the other. B stands for borders: if the growth has abnormal edges. C stands for color: if the color changes within the growth or grows darker over time. D stands for diameter: the growth is suspect if it is about 6 mm or larger. E stands for evolution: if the mole continues to change appearance over a relatively short period of time. Although the study showed an increase in cases of melanoma, it also showed a decrease in deaths caused by skin cancer, which is likely because of early detection methods. More sunscreen companies are producing lotions which protect against both UVA and UVB sunlight as well, significantly decreasing the skin’s exposure to the harmful rays. Although identifying a case of melanoma early reduces chances of fatality, the only real way to prevent skin cancer is by taking measures to protect yourself from the harmful rays.
rate with famous rock and pop music artists. Ron’s visit to K-State is a part of Creativity Illuminated, a series that focuses on presenting books, music and cultural activities in order to raise cultural awareness. “I think it was very brave for them to make that movie [West Bank Story],” said Todd Holmberg, executive director of McCain Auditorium. “It makes light of Palestinian-Israeli conflict.” Darin Strouts, Manhattan resident, said he felt Ron did a good job of combining humor with the seriousness of his movies’ content. “It was hilarious. It was very deep, and also funny,” Strouts said. “You have three kinds of music that combined. I think they highlighted the conflict in general. I don’t have a lot of background of the conflict itself but I thought they explained it really well.”
