DAILY EGYPTIAN Braving the cold
Outlook becomes SIU mail system LUKE NOZICKA Daily Egyptian After years of having an array of different email services used throughout campus, the university has chosen one provider. Chancellor Rita Cheng said the change in emailing systems is more efficient, will save the university money and is a step in a more technologically friendly SIU. Student and faculty email systems have been migrating to Microsoft Outlook from Gmail since Dec. 18. Previously not all students and faculty were using the same mailing systems, Cheng said. “To put it in context, we had 35 different email systems that were being used on campus,” she said. Several problems arose because of the numerous systems being unable to integrate, Cheng said. She said one of the larger problems was while sending out mass emails, some recipients would not receive the information. “There were a lot of challenges with calendars and address lists, and the Google solution was also not meeting our needs in terms of our regulatory compliance,” she said. “It wasn’t secure enough.” The decision to migrate all SIU employees was made based on several factors, one being cost, Cheng said. It is cheaper to have one system, because campus technicians can then upgrade everybody at the same time. “With 35 systems we had individuals all across campus that were spending their time supporting email,” Cheng said. “Now we can have them spend time supporting the other things we need to do as far as supporting Banner, D2L, our research computing and other things.” Assistant Provost and Chief Information Officer David Crain said along with the cost factor, the new system is going to work more efficiently with the university tablets. “We’re doing the tablet project, Mobile Dawg, for freshman and Office 365 integrates better with the Windows operating system,” he said. Because of this the next version of Mobile Dawg will integrate with Office 365. Along with the programs efficiency through the tablets, Microsoft solution is more secure than previous options, he said. “(Google’s) terms and conditions say they will give your information to any local government that requests it, like subpoenas it,” Crain said. “But a number of their data centers are in China, really meaning the Chinese government or any government where any Google center is could get our email. Where Microsoft agrees to keep all of our emails at least in the continental US.” While the migration is happening for all students now, new freshman and transfers were set up with Outlook at the beginning of the fall semester. The change will also include a transition to Lync, a video conferencing and instant message system, Crain said. Please see OUTLOOK | 2

Jessica Pease, of Carbondale, sleds downhill Tuesday with her son James, 2, near Quigley Hall. Pease brought her three children out to play in the snow since she did not want them inside while it was sunny. “They were going to be running around in our backyard before we brought them out here,” Pease said. According to the National Weather Service, Carbondale received three inches of snow in the last several days. Today is expected to be mostly cloudy with a high of 33 degrees.
Student-run small business beginning to pay off JAKE SAUNDERS SETH RICHARDSON Daily Egyptian Beginning a business while in college is a challenging experience, but for one university student, the struggle is worth it. Sidney Rehg, a December 2013 graduate from Belleville, is an example of what the reward can be through long-standing dedication and perpetual determination: your own business. Rehg officially launched Piranha, a public relations and branding firm, in May. He worked throughout the spring 2013 semester to bring his business venture to fruition. “When I started Piranha, I understood that Carbondale, along with the region surrounding it, lacked a strong public relations presence,” he said. “With my background in digital content creation and public relations, I knew there was a great opportunity in the market.” The company was formed through the Dunn-Richmond Economic Development Center’s Small Business Incubator. Rehg provides a variety of public relations services to clients in the area including content development, email campaigns, newsletters, media and press kits, event planning, and website development. Piranha focuses its public relations

endeavors on a digital scale in the St. Louis and southern Illinois region. Rehg said operating in this area requires strong networking. Jasmine Breeland, a junior from Wheeling studying speech communications and account executive at Piranha, said Rehg’s love of public relations and background is what drove him to start the company. “His brother started his own business at 18 and his father has a digital ad agency in the St. Louis area,” she said. “Sidney was further inspired to start his business after seeing his father and Daymond John, founder of FUBU, speak at Southern Illinois University Carbondale within a few weeks of each other.” Denise McClearey, a senior lecturer in speech communication who taught Rehg, said his background will be an invaluable asset to his ongoing success. “I think Sid is going to be really great in this role,” she said. “He was born to do it. His father has a very successful business and I think Sid learned a lot watching his dad.”

Rehg worked with only one other employee when he started. As the company has grown, he hired another four. “The business picked up clients rather fast and I aspire to grow the business to manage client accounts and transition away from project-based contracting,” said Rehg. Two of his larger clients are Blue Stingray Digital Ad Agency in St. Louis and Bow Tie Cigar Company in Belleville. John Pearson, a professor of management, said there are several challenges any small business owner faces when starting, but they may be harder for a student. “The two reasons that startups fail is undercapitalization—which means not enough money—and poor management,” he said. “If you’re a student starting a business, you may not have any business background at all.” Pearson said capital can also be hard to come by for students because investors may think they do not have the ability to be successful.

Originally the migration was considered for just faculty and staff, Cheng said. “So in short, while we were moving the faculty and staff to Exchange and Lync, we thought what also made a lot of sense was to move the students to the same system,” she said. Faculty and staff emails will be fully migrated in February, Crain said. The SIU email addresses will not change, still ending with siu.edu. The university has been sending emails since last semester letting people know of the migration. Crain said the university is on what Microsoft calls a Hybrid Solution, where all the programs work together and connect as one system. “We had to roll out Microsoft Forefront Identity Manager as the identity management provisioning solution for Exchange and Lync on Primus and that same identity management solution works for Office 365,” Crain said. “Where had we kept students on Google, we would’ve had a whole different provisioning system.” Not only is the new system convenient, but also it virtually will appear as the same as any other mailing program, Cheng said. Cheng said While Office 365 doesn’t look much different than the Gmail interface it gives students, faculty and staff many new benefits. “You’ll have access to the instant messaging, the video conferencing and sharing calendaring which our RSO’s greatly benefit from,” she said. Gmail has been the main emailing system at the university
for several years now, and some students wish it was not going, including Bryce Webster, a senior from Woodstock majoring in psychology and sociology. “I was a huge fan of Gmail, I really enjoyed the interface of it and how user friendly it was,” Webster said. Webster said while he has not given Microsoft email a good look yet, he has set his Outlook to forward to his Gmail account. He has been using Gmail for six years, and is happy that while the system is changing, he can still use some of the Google applications. “I do like that they’re still giving us the options to have access to the Google Calendar and Drive and all that through our SIU email,” Webster said. Crain said aside from the mailing aspect, Microsoft would also allow a cheaper voice phone system. “We’re having to replace an aging phone system, all of our traditional phone system is 25 to 35 years old and needs to be replaced,” he said. “We’re going to move toward voice over IP.” Changing to a voice over Internet protocol is convenient, as the university already owns the license for Microsoft Lync and would save the university money in the long haul, Crain said. “It will literally save us millions of dollars over going out and getting Cisco VoIP or one of the other VoIP’s,” Crain said. “This is all part of a larger transition related to Google apps and Office 365 so that the email is one component, but there’s a lot of things the students and staff use everyday that they’ll really like,” Cheng said. For general information on the transition to Microsoft Office, go to helpdesk.siu.edu/Office365.
Christmas break reviews: The good, the bad and the vintage KARSTEN BURGSTAHLER Daily Egyptian Christmas break did not mean a break from moviegoing; in fact, some of the year’s best films come out in late December, looking for Oscar recognition. A summary of what Hollywood had to offer while you were away:
members leave much of a mark; Kristen Wiig is underused in her role as Steve Carrell’s love interest. But the movie is elevated by its commentary on schlocky news outlets and how the real story is buried behind entertainment, something one may not expect to find here. Saving Mr. Banks
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
Both of the leads, Tom Hanks as Walt Disney and Emma Thompson as P.L. Travers, fit their roles perfectly. In fact, most everything here is top notch, although Travers backstory and relationship with her father, played by Colin Farrell, is more interesting and heartbreaking than the film surface story, which concerns the adaptation of Mary Poppins into a Disney film. The shakiest issue with “Saving Mr. Banks” is the way history has been rewritten to provide for a happy ending. The ending need not be spoiled, but audiences who choose to view need to do some research. Disney does not always cast itself in the best light here, but it’s right to be suspect once one reads the truth.
Peter Jackson’s original “Lord of the Rings” trilogy, while suffering from protracted endings (especially “Return of the King,” the series closer), was a wonder to watch on the big screen. It really felt like there was something big at stake. Jackson’s new “Hobbit” trilogy is not blessed with that storyline, and while “The Desolation of Smaug” is certainly more entertaining than “An Unexpected Journey,” it slogs along without actually going anywhere. The film is occasionally exciting and the climactic battle with Smaug is a highlight. Too bad the movie feels like the cash grab it is.
Director Spike Jonze has only made four films in his career, but he’s made a statement with each one of them. In fact, “Being John Malkovich” is perhaps the quirkiest, most ingenious film of the ‘90s. In “Her,” Jonze focuses in on the way technology supposedly brings us closer but has started to fill in the growing gap of communication between humans. Joaquin Phoenix stars as a man who falls in love with an operating system named Samantha, clearly a replacement for Apple’s Siri. As their relationship continues, Phoenix discovers that he cannot create the perfect relationship, no matter how hard he tries. “Her” is both humorous and heartwrenching, and it is nice to see Phoenix take on a slightly more upbeat role. “Her” is a movie audiences will talk about for days after viewing it, perhaps dragging them away from their cell phones for a while. Inside Llewyn Davis
Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues
The Wolf of Wall Street Will Ferrell and Co. had nearly a decade to develop the sequel to the cult favorite, and surprisingly they made a movie just as relevant to the media today as it is funny. Sure, “Anchorman 2” is not nearly as quotable as the original, but at least it does not suffer “The Hangover” problem of nearly repeating the same plot. None of the new cast
drugs. Martin Scorsese’s biopic about Jordan Belfort, a stockbroker who made millions ripping his clients off using penny stocks, was making so much money he had no idea what to do with it, turning his life into a circus. The fact that Belfort survived is, frankly, a miracle. Scorsese goes for broke, and while the audience probably won’t identify with Belfort and his cohorts, it is a larger-than-life true story that manages to stay gripping for its 3-hour runtime. That’s an accomplishment.
Recently “The Wolf of Wall Street” was declared one of the most profane movies ever made, checking in at more than 500 f words. This doesn’t even begin to scratch the movie’s excesses, a film which drowns in sex and
The Coen Brother’s latest film follows Llewyn Davis, a folk singer in ‘60s Brooklyn struggling to make ends meet and moving from sofa to sofa. As with most Coen films, it’s a parable in which unfortunate things befall regular guys. “Davis” does have a wonderful soundtrack, something that elevates it above their previous work, but the Coens are at their best when they are dealing with plots laden in sinister undertones, as with films like “No Country for Old Men” and “Fargo.” “Davis” plays more erratically than those films, perhaps to match Davis’ erratic lifestyle, but that makes for a movie with a more abstract point. This is the Coens at their strangest, and it takes a dedicated fan to love it.
David O. Russell once again proves his storytelling prowess and his ability to lead an all-star ensemble in this ‘70s mob film, something many critics noted might have been more at home under Martin Scorsese’s direction. But Russell does for the genre what he did for the dramadey with “Silver Linings Playbook:” let the characters mingle and allow their dialogue to push the movie forward, and it is always a delight to see what he can cook up and deliver through a cast sporting heavy northeastern accents. Everyone’s good here, but Christian Bale as con man Irving Rosenfeld, and Jennifer Lawrence as his wife Rosalyn are the MVPs. Lawrence steals every scene she’s in. The Secret Life of Walter Mitty
“Walter Mitty” is a genuine surprise. A semiremake of the 1947 film starring Danny Kaye, itself a shaky adaptation of James Thurber’s short story, the movie stars Ben Stiller as a photo manager at Life magazine as the storied publication prepares its final issue. He discovers a negative is missing and steps outside of his comfort zone to find it out in the wild, where the photographer is chasing stories. Critics panned the movie as more of a travelogue with forced emotions; it’s true that “Walter Mitty” does try to shove its motto about living life down audiences’ throats in the first half. But the movie does eventually find its footing and is a truly beautiful film in every aspect.
4 News BUSINESS CONTINUED FROM
However, Rehg has been able to overcome these obstacles. “I will admit, finishing my last semester at SIUC and running a business on the side proved to be challenging at times,” he said. “I always appreciated the challenge and recognized the challenge as a sign of success.” Rehg said despite the difficulty, he has loved the process of starting his own business. “Launching a business while in school was actually a great experience,” Rehg said. “I completed the majority of the ground work over the summer and was already up and running before the semester started.”
Pearson said students should rely on services available through the university, such as the Dunn Richmond Economic Development Center’s Small Business Incubator, as Rehg did. Pearson also said students may have one advantage of starting a business while young. “Students are at a perfect time in their life to take on these ventures,” he said. “I mean, what do you have? If you’re 30 years old, married, two kids and a mortgage, there’s things you can lose. When you’re 20 years old, you might have a car.” Rehg is working on expanding his business to a wider area of operations and activities. “The current focus on digital public relations efforts led to a
surprising success and I am excited to expand the firm to cover more public relations efforts,” he said. “We are currently working on community events in the Carbondale area to expand event planning efforts.” Josh Houston, a senior lecturer in speech communication and one of Rehg’s professors, said he hopes Rehg’s success is indicative of what students at the university can accomplish. “Sidney is an example of the type of students that we find at SIU,” he said. “While he’s special in his own way, he’s also symbolic of the quality of students I encounter on a regular basis here.” Piranha’s website can be viewed at www.prpiranha.com for more information on the company.

Salukis bigger stars off court than on c
nd the ar o y be
with tyler dixon For the second time in less than a month, the SIU men’s basketball team found itself in the national spotlight and it had nothing to do with play on the court. The infamous rant after the Murray State University loss and now the team getting stuck on the interstate coming back from Bloomington on Sunday have each been on several media outlets. The publicity for the school could be seen as good or bad; good because it takes away from the team’s 4-11 record on the court, bad because people now assume our coach is crazy and the team made the wrong decision in driving home. Regardless, Hinson said after the game against the Redbirds his team would have a different starting line-up when it plays at Loyola University Wednesday. The Salukis have played the same starting five the last several games. Four players have started every game for the Salukis this season. The three guard spots are sophomore Marcus Fillyaw, sophomore Anthony Beane and senior Desmar Jackson. Senior center Davante Drinkard has played the five spot all season, the other postposition has been taken by three different players. Freshman forward Sean O’Brien has been the starter since the Chicago State University game. It is obvious that the Salukis need another scorer besides Jackson. O’Brien could be that scorer. O’Brien is long and athletic and can be the hybrid player that Jeff Early was for SIU last season. In two Missouri Valley Conference games, O’Brien is averaging 13.5 points per game and 6.5 rebounds per game.
CHRIS ZOELLER | F OR
Freshman forward Sean O’Brien drives the ball against Western Kentucky University junior forward George Fant Dec. 7 during the Salukis’ 69-60 loss at SIU Arena. O’Brien has ranked second on the team in average points per game with 13.5 since the start of conference play. The Salukis travel to Loyola University Chicago Wednesday to take on the Ramblers at 7:00 p.m. It will not be O’Brien that is losing his starting spot in Wednesday’s game. Drinkard’s minutes have been diminishing all season and freshman Bola Olaniyan has been playing well and his raw talent is through the roof. Olaniyan needs to improve his movement and his hands. He is an aggressive player and when he sets a screen, the opposing player is not getting through him. Beane has been struggling in the first two games of the MVC season. He is only averaging 1.5 points per game in 33.5 minutes. Beane is a player that must step up, even though he is a sophomore, he is a veteran on the team. He is a dismal 1-for-10 from the field in his last two games and has only attempted three free throws. Sophomore guard Jalen Pendleton is continuing to strive off of the bench and does not need to be in the starting line-up. Pendleton is a spark. He is built like a fire hydrant and can push
defenders out of the way. Pendleton has a gift, if he wants to get to the basket, he will get to the basket. It is apparent the team is struggling this season, but the future looks bright for the Salukis. They will lose Jackson, who is a phenomenal scorer, but with already three players signed for next season, the team is on its way up. A bold statement is in two years the Salukis will make the NCAA Tournament. Many key players will be seniors and the cohesion that Saluki fans have been looking for will be there. After heading to Chicago for conference newcomer Loyola Wednesday, the Salukis welcome the Evansville University Purple Aces and its star DJ Balentine to SIU Arena Saturday at 3:05 p.m..

AARON GRAFF Daily Egyptian The Salukis will host their first scored meet of 2014 this Friday and Saturday with one thrower already setting his sights on a national bid. Sophomore Josh Freeman said at the end of every track season the top throwers in the nation get invited to the national tournament in June and he is looking to get his mark out of the way earlier rather than later. Freeman said he is shooting for a shot put throw close to 19.25 meters because that could get him into the national tournament. “One of my biggest goals is to try and get a mark that will qualify me for nationals,” Freeman said. “I’ve been talking to my coach and he thinks it will be somewhere between 19 meters and 19.25 (meters), which is roughly 62
and a half feet, almost 63.” Freeman said another goal he has this season is to help the team out more with weight throwing since shot put has been his main event. He said he expects the team will do well overall at the Saluki Open as long as everyone comes ready to compete. Coach Connie Price-Smith said the meet would set the tone for the rest of the season and she thinks everyone will be where they left off in December. Price-Smith said the Salukis will have to compete against some Division I schools including Belmont University, Austin Peay State University and Southeast Missouri State University. “With Belmont competing, just them alone will be a great meet for us to compete with them,” Price-Smith said. “They usually have a lot of good athletes both on the track and in the field,
so I think it will be an exciting competition.” Most of the cross-country runners did not run at the last track and field meet since they were coming off a conference title for both the Saluki men and women and were resting up for the spring season. Cross-country coach Matt Sparks said the majority of them will run this meet, with the exception of a few of them getting over some minor injuries. “For the most part, everybody who is healthy will be running, 90 percent of the cross-country kids will be out there competing,” Sparks said. “A couple kids are still banged up.” Those athletes include juniors Kelley Gallagher and Kristen Levi, who Sparks said were the top two girls during the cross-country season. Sparks said his main focus is the bigger tournaments later in the season and he wants to make sure everyone
is healthy for those. Sparks said it might be challenging getting back into competition and he is using this meet to get back into the swing of things and help figure out who is going to travel to bigger meets. “Maybe they do have a bigger challenge, but it’s not of a concern to the program, because the bigger concern is the end of February,” Sparks said. “This meet is just a tune-up meet for the later season meets that are going to be more competitive.” The Salukis can be seen in action throughout the day Friday and Saturday at the Student Recreational Center.

Saluki womens basketball give effort despite player shortages SYMONE WOOLRIDGE Daily Egyptian As an athlete’s body begins to wear down from long practices, players are forced to sit out to avoid further injury. The SIU women’s basketball team has been at a slight disadvantage as a result of players’ injuries and medical issues this season. After a disappointing 5-26 record last season, the women were excited to return in full force this year with a new coaching staff. Although the Salukis had a rough start, they are starting to get the feel of playing as a team. Since their first conference game Jan. 2 against Bradley University, SIU is 1-1 in conference. During the hard fought game, SIU defeated the Braves in doubleovertime 100-96. This was the first time the SIU women have scored at least 100 points since the 1984-85 season. The Salukis showed confidence as a team with only five eligible players by the second overtime. Junior forwards Dyana Pierre and Azia Washington led the Salukis with a combined 60 points. After scoring 27 points, Washington fouled out in the first overtime and Pierre found herself on the bench in the second, finishing with 33 points. Because of players fouling out and others out for medical reasons, the women did not have any substitute players to look to. Freshmen guard Carlie Corrigan and forward Kim Nebo were the two remaining out of the original starting five. “I knew I was going to have to step up and take on a role that I don’t think many freshman have to take,” Corrigan said. “But obviously we had so few players everybody had to step up in a different way.” Corrigan said she had to find her role a lot faster than usual, especially as a freshman. “That game showed us that as a team it’s okay, this is what happens,” she said. “There’s always going to be something that happens, someone is going to get hurt, someone is going to be out, it’s just going to happen.” Coach Cindy Stein said she was very proud of her team and how they handled the battle. “If we had one more player foul out, we would’ve had to play with four people,” Stein said. “It was tough, but at that point we just had to play smart, and that was the key.”
Senior guard Jordyn Courier sat out of her first game against Bradley with the flu. The senior averaged 6.8 points last season and has been scoring crucial points for SIU in the last few games. From the start of the season the Salukis have lost four players, including junior guard Cartaesha Macklin. Macklin has been a key player for the Salukis. The guard averaged 15 points per game last season and was Honorable Mention All-Missouri Valley Conference. Despite her Nov. 18 performance against Indiana-Purdue Fort Wayne University where she scored the onethousandth point of her SIU career, she has not played since Dec. 4 for unknown medical reasons. Sophomore point guard Rishonda Napier, who averaged 11.3 points per game last season has not played with the Salukis since Nov. 27 where she scored seven points against Marshall University. Earlier in the season Stein said Napier had become a vocal leader on the court. She was dedicating her time to watching film and spending extra time shooting before practice. Napier has averaged 7.2 points per game in the five games she played this season. Freshman Kiley Gorski is another SIU guard who has not been able to play this season. During Gorski’s senior year of high school, she tore her anterior cruciate ligament and medial collateral ligament. The setback has caused Gorski to sit out her first year of SIU basketball. She will undergo ACL reconstructive surgery later this month. “It’s really frustrating sitting out,” she said. “But I think I can bring what Cartaesha, Alexis and Rishonda bring from the bench.” With three guards out for the season, the on-court Salukis have been learning how to play without some of their teammates. Stein said everyone has been pushing themselves physically but their day-to-day play has to be more consistent. “They have to learn how to play with everyone,” Stein said. “But I think each and every one of them step up in their own way and they all work hard.” Although Pierre has been dominating inside the paint this season, the Salukis have been without 6-foot-1 junior Alexus Patterson, their only other center.

Junior guard Mercedes Griffin drives in for a layup against Loyola University guard Becca Smith Saturday at SIU Arena. The Salukis were defeated 60-48 as a result of several missed free throws and being out rebounded 46–37. Patterson averaged 3.9 points last season, and has only played in three games with the Salukis this year. Patterson along with Macklin and Napier are out for the season for unknown medical reasons. The Salukis played with intensity in the double-overtime battle against Bradley, but failed to show the same fire against Loyola University-Chicago on January 4 when SIU took a 60-48 loss against the Ramblers. Stein was unhappy with the women’s performance, and said playing a
draining double-overtime game two days before was no excuse for the loss. “This is where we have to mature as a team, you have to get used to playing back-to-back games,” Stein said. “In double overtime everyone played significant minutes and had to play hard but you have to follow it up with the same intensity for the next game.” The Ramblers forced the Salukis to nine turnovers in the first half. They then went on a 13-6 run to start the second half. “In the Loyola game we were horrible,
absolutely horrible,” Stein said. “We didn’t play with any kind of passion or drive until probably about the last three or four minutes of the game.” SIU will head to Iowa to compete against Drake University for their first away game since Dec. 4. Stein said defensively the Salukis have to be able to guard the players in all five spots. “Drake is a good shooting team,” Stein said. “It comes down to defense, rebounding and taking care of the ball.”
