Personal data of 146k at risk of exposure BY TORI FATER @vrfater

Personal data including names, addresses and Social Security numbers of about 146,000 IU students and recent graduates is at risk for disclosure. Staff members of the University registrar’s office discovered Feb. 21 that personal data of students enrolled at seven IU campuses between 2011 and 2014 had been stored in an insecure location for the past 11 months. IU spokesman Mark Land said the data was originally stored in

the registrar system and used by student service representatives in the Office of the Registrar. Land said the insecure data was a result of human error, not software error. “The computer security is doing what it’s supposed to, it’s just that the information was unprotected,” he said. Changes to the website made in March 2013 accidentally left files unencrypted, he said. Unencrypted files were moved to a secure server when the error was discovered last week. “As soon as we realized something wasn’t right, we locked down

and took steps to secure the data,” Land said. No servers or systems were compromised, according to an IU press release, and no evidence suggests the information was downloaded by an unauthorized individual. It was accessed by automated computer data mining applications, or webcrawlers. A webcrawler is programmed to browse the Web for the purpose of indexing. They are able to copy all the pages they visit so users can access information more easily. Land said while the information was likely indexed by the web crawlers and put in a search en-

gine’s cache, IU has no evidence that the files or cache have been accessed. “Our IT folks, who are good at this sort of thing, are confident that the chances of any of it getting exposed is pretty low,” he said. “The reason we’re notifying people about the exposure is because we have no guarantee it hasn’t gotten out. But we have no evidence those files, that cache has been accessed.” Students and recent graduates whose data was accessed by web crawlers will be notified by IU beginning this week, Land said. James Kennedy is the associate

vice president for financial aid and University student services, where the information was stored until last week. He said the University has policies in effect to deal with data exposures, and a call center run by experts will be available to students with questions by Friday morning. “This is not a case of a targeted attempt to obtain data for illegal purposes, and we believe the chance of sensitive data falling into the wrong hands as a result of this situation is remote,” Kennedy said.

Suspect in CVS robbery arrested FROM IDS REPORTS

On Monday, the Third Monroe Circuit Court charged a 17-year-old boy with the armed robbery of CVS on Feb. 16 in Bloomington after the Avon Police Department arrested him last week in Hendricks County on a separate charge. Two men robbed the CVS Pharmacy at 2650 S. Walnut St. on Feb. 16 with one of the men pointing a handgun at a cashier. The two men stole cash and cigarettes. Philip Dida John Jacob arrived in Avon on Feb. 20 after taking a cab from Bloomington. The taxi cab was heading east on East State Road 36 in Avon when Jacob attempted to rob the taxi driver at gunpoint. “He pulled what appeared to be a gun on the taxi driver and demanded he give him all his money,” said Jack Miller, chief of police at Avon Police Department. The taxi driver saw an Avon police cruiser in his rearview mirror and pulled over abruptly. The driver waved down the police officer as Jacob escaped on foot into a nearby trailer park. Jacob tried to hide underneath a trailer in the Avon Village trailer park at 79 Avon Village Dr., Miller said. Police officers released a K-9 unit to pull Jacob out after he refused to surrender himself. Jacob suffered a minor wound, a small puncture to his arm. As of Tuesday afternoon, Jacob was in the Hendricks County Jail facing a preliminary charge of robbery, a class B felony. His appeal bond is set at $75,000, meaning Jacob can only be released by a bail bondsman appearing before a judge in court. “Unless he is waived to adult court the only charge he will be facing as a juvenile will be juvenile delinquency,” Miller said. Initial Hendricks Circuit Court charges on Feb. 20 included criminal confinement, a class B felony; theft, a class B felony; and resisting law enforcement, a class A misdemeanor. Jacob will be tried as an adult. Even if Jacob were to be bonded out of jail, he still faces charges of robbery in Monroe County and an arrest warrant issued through the Monroe County Sheriff ’s Department. Dennis Barbosa

Second half collapse leads to Hoosier loss BY ANDY WITTRY @AndyWittry

IU fell short in its attempt to upset No. 14 Wisconsin for the second time this season, falling 69-58 to the Badgers in Madison, Wis. After entering halftime with a 10-point lead, the flood gates opened for Hoosier defense during a second half in which Wisconsin (23-5, 10-5) outscored IU 50-29. IU sophomore point guard Kevin “Yogi” Ferrell said IU didn’t

bear down and play defense in the second half. “We over-helped, and then they knocked down some crucial threes,” he said. During the first half, IU (15-12, 5-9) limited Wisconsin to 1-for10 shooting from behind the arc in the first half — an uncharacteristic performance for a Badger team that made 37.1 percent of its 3-pointers entering Tuesday’s matchup. Wisconsin was 6-for-11 from 3-point range after halftime. Ferrell said the Hoosiers’ lack

of communication on defense was probably IU’s biggest problem, and it led to the over-helping. “You can’t give too much, especially with Wisconsin, with them being a great 3-point shooting team,” he said. “They were running all the same sets ... we just broke down defensively.” IU Coach Tom Crean said in the Big Ten, defenders can’t be caught over-helping because there are too many good shooters who can take advantage of defensive miscues.

IUSA election begins, seeking more tickets BY DANI CASTONZO @Dani_Castonzo

IU Student Association election season has begun. To introduce interested candidates to the rules and the application process of the election, the IUSA Election Commission organized the first of three campus-wide callouts Tuesday night in the Indiana Memorial Union Oak Room. One ticket has declared its intention to run, and the Election Commission — a group of five student representatives who oversee

and run the election — was unanimously approved at last Sunday’s Congress meeting. Former Union Board president and senior Jared Thomas serves as president of the Election Commission. This year’s biggest election change, Thomas said, will be his approach as president of the commission. “My goal is to get as many tickets and as much information out there,” Thomas said. “People think student voice isn’t being heard, and they want someone to do something about it. So I’d really like for students to get engaged

and involved so they can put their money where their mouth is.” His goal, he said, is to get three tickets running. “Two is good,” Thomas said. “Three would be amazing.” He said since he has been a student at IU, he has noticed a rollover between students involved in IUSA the year before forming a ticket and winning. This trend, he said, has both positives and negatives. “I’m kind of torn,” Thomas said. “I don’t think it’s necessarily a terrible thing.” On one hand, Thomas said, students from the previous

IUSA seeks new candidates FROM IDS REPORTS


Students, including Ally Turkheimer, gather in Israel during the 2013 Birthright trip. Registration for upcoming trips will close soon, as 127 students have already applied.

Free Hillel trips near capacity BY SUZANNE GROSSMAN @suzannepaige6

Time is running out for students wanting to sign up for Talgit-Birthright Israel: Hillel Trip. Registration is expected to close in a matter of days, and a record-breaking number of students have already signed up. This makes IU Hillel the top recruiter for Talgit-Birthright Israel in the nation so far, trip organizer Ally Turkheimer said. “I’ve never had so many applicants before,” Turkheimer said. “It’s beautiful and amazing and brings me so much happiness.” So far this session, 127 applicants have applied for the trips either this summer or later. The summer trip will take place at the end of May, but the official dates haven’t been released. Turkheimer said she believes a possible reason for the spike in interest is due to

the change in eligibility made by Talgit-Birthright Israel. Previously, the trip was open only to those who had never been to Israel before. TalgitBirthright Israel changed this in January. Now the trips are open to Jewish students who haven’t been to Israel since their 18th birthday. Students who have ever visited Israel for more than three months since age 12 are still not eligible. “From what I understand, the reason they open up the trips is to allow students to experience Israel again as adults and connect back to their Judaism,” Turkheimer said. Turkheimer said IU Hillel probably won’t know when registration will end until 24 hours before, if they’re lucky. “It closes because you can’t have people keep applying,” Turkheimer said. “We need time to readjust the market and rebrand. There are always going to be people who are interested in signing up.” IU Hillel is the only

provider on campus that allows students to schedule their trip anytime within the next two years, Turkheimer said. Rabbi Sue Shifron of Hillel said she believes it will be the best experience of their lives. She said the record numbers signing up for the trips are a testament to the religion’s presence at the University. “It shows what a strong Jewish community we have here on campus,” Shifron said. Shifron also said she hopes students will sign up even if they aren’t connected to IU Hillel. “Even if you don’t know anybody, it’s a great opportunity to make friends from this school that you can come back with,” Shifron said. Freshman Jackie Gallagher signed up for the trip last semester and said she’s hoping she gets into this May’s trip to Israel. “Even though it’s only a 10-day trip, we really will get to see all the important

things,” Gallagher said. “The fact I get to go with a bunch of friends and people from school makes it great, too.” Not only is it a chance to travel for free and be with friends, but it also has deeper meaning for students, she said. “I think it’s important for Jews to visit Israel because it’s the homeland where so much culture and history is,” Gallagher said. “As you get older, you may start away from what your parents taught you and what you did religiously at home. This helps you get reconnected and stay on the Judaism path.” To learn more about the trips and registration, Turkheimer said she encourages students to either call or visit Hillel. Students wanting to sign up for the Talgit-Birthright Israel: Hillel-Indiana University trip should visit “It’s going to be an amazing experience,” Gallagher said. “Everyone should try to do it if they can.”

IU targets minorities for recruitment BY KATHRINE SCHULZE @KathrineSchulze

The word “diversity” was ubiquitous in the Campus Strategic Plan released last Wednesday, playing a part in every section. The Undergraduate Life section, which covered initiatives to recruit and retain undergraduates, focused heavily on diversity and increasing the number of underrepresented minorities on campus. It includes a goal to increase the proportion of minorities in undergraduate programs as well as increasing the number of women and minorities in Science, Technology, Informatics and Math (STIM) programs. Martin McCrory is the vice provost for educational inclusion and diversity and co-chair of diversity recruitment for the strategic plan. “For many of our students, college is the first chance they have to actually interact with someone completely different,” he said. “As the country becomes

increasingly multicultural, it behooves us to teach students to relate to people from a wide range of backgrounds. The more diverse our campus, the more it approximates life in the real world.” IU already specifically recruits minorities, Anderson said, but the plan focuses on how they can do it in a more effective way. “We’re looking to increase the number of underrepresented minorities in each of our beginner cohorts,” Anderson said. IU is campaigning for students through different outlets including media, inperson contact, high school counselors and churches, Anderson said. “IU has been sending admissions personnel into the cities to recruit for quite some time, and some of our individual academic units have been doing it as well,” McCrory said. “What is new is that OEM staff and IUB faculty increasingly are working together as part of a coordinated, energetic recruitment effort. “In fact, many of IUB

STIM faculty members have expressed an interest in personally helping to recruit students in the STIM fields.” The OEM will add an associate director of admissions this year who will be responsible for diversityoriented student recruitment and outreach in Indianapolis and the surrounding areas, McCrory said. “The associate director will work directly with the schools to as part of our broad-based minority recruitment efforts,” he said. The OEM is also looking into recruiting younger students, McCrory said. “In the past we have concentrated on getting high school students interested in college, and we will continue to do so,” McCrory said. “We are also increasing our efforts to reach underrepresented elementary and middle school children. We want students to know that Indiana University is a viable option.” The strategic plan also covers what will happen to minority students once they come to IU. It includes initiatives to better engage

international students on campus. Eric Love, director of the Office of Diversity Education, said he is happy with the diversity initiatives in the plan. “I love that the provost was tapping into different areas of the campus to come up with these recommendations,” he said. “It wasn’t just a few experts, that they really did a thorough job.” Love said IU’s stance about diversity is a reflection of the shrinking world. “We live in a global economy,” Love said. “Changing demographics across the nation. You may be in a conference call with people from all over the world, and so we need to have at least some basic multicultural competencies.” Love also said he likes that each of the six sections of the plan included a diversity initiative. “I also like that it’s important enough that there are diversity components to all the individual unit plans,” Love said. “Because I think that diversity is an institutional responsibility.”

Professor sues, alledges breach of privacy rights BY AMANDA MARINO @amandanmarino

IU senior lecturer Christine Von der Haar and the American Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit Feb. 19 against Sherlana Lieba and a man referred to only as “Mr. Combs.” Von der Haar said she felt her right to privacy was violated when she and a friend were detained at the Indianapolis International Airport. U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents detained Von der Haar when the two went to pick up some of her friend Dimitris Papatheodoropoulos’ items June 8, 2012. That day, the senior lecturer in the IU Department of Sociology and Papatheodoropoulos were detained from about 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Papatheodoropoulos was visiting from Greece. Von der Haar said she soon realized what appeared to be a misunderstanding was much more complicated. She said they questioned her twice. Von der Haar said the border protection agents first questioned her for about 20 minutes, and then again for a shorter period of time about a half hour later. She said she did not see Papatheodoropoulos until he was released at about 3:30 p.m. In addition to the detainment and interrogation, Von der Haar discovered the agents had knowledge of personal email correspondences between her and Papatheodoropoulos.

The agents asked if she and Papatheodoropoulos were planning to be married. Von der Haar denied the allegation. At no point did Von der Haar feel she was able to leave or choose not to answer a question, she said. The lawsuit filed stated one of the agents stood blocking the door to the windowless room where she was interviewed. Staff Attorney Hanni Fakhoury of the Electronic Frontier Foundation reviewed Von der Haar’s case. He said he had not seen that specific track pattern before or such an aggressive line of questioning about seemingly irrelevant information. “You don’t see a lot of situations like that,” he said. Van der Haar said she hired an attorney, contacted senators and congressmen She worked the entire summer to try and find out what had happened at the airport. She also contacted the American Civil Liberties Union in mid-July and has been working with them since. Von der Haar said she has also used the Freedom of Information Act to request the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security release any files they have on her. All of the files are public record. She said the FBI has told her they do not have a file on her. “I’m doing this for the American public,” she said. “We need more transparency.”

‘F’ schools plan turnaround BY SYDNEY MURRAY @sydlm13

Administrators and teachers from Fairview and Highland Park Elementary schools spoke at the Monroe County Community School Corporation Board of Trustees meeting Tuesday about their schools’ turnaround plans. Both Highland Park and Fairview received an F grade from the Indiana Department of Education for the 2012-13 school year and were designated priority schools. Priority schools are monitored closely by the IDOE, which includes classroom observation of teachers. If the IDOE determines that the school is not meeting the criteria of the turnaround principles through their new plan, the school might be required to change personnel, shift resources or accept the help of an outside management team to manage the school and develop a new plan. Priority schools must also submit a Student Achievement Plan. Highland has already completed its plan, and Fairview is close to finishing its plan. Highland Park Principal Maggie Dainton spoke first. Highland Park received a C for the 2011-12 school year and was named a focus-targeted school. Dainton highlighted the eight IDOE “Turnaround Principles Requirements,” which enforce schools to implement policies such as a school environment that supports the needs of children and to recruit, retain and develop effective teachers. Dainton then outlined the three main changes now occurring at Highland Park. All students in kindergarten to sixth grade are now participating in daily English/language arts and math enrichment/remediation time.

The Indiana Department of Local Government Finance approved Bloomington Township’s 2014 Budget despite protests from 17 residents regarding salary raises for top officials. On Sept. 9, 2013, these residents filed a formal petition to be received by the township. The petition protested salary increases for Trustee Lillian Henegar, Deputy Trustee Lisa Philips and Senior Caseworker Carilyn Dillman. The petition also opposed contracts that provide fire department services to Benton and Washington townships with taxpayer money. The Bloomington Township Board passed the budget plan Sept. 26, 2013, and it was approved by the Indiana Department of Local Government Finance on Feb. 6. The approved budget increased Henegar and Philips’ salaries by roughly 11 percent. Dillman’s salary also increased based on an increase from 30 hours of work per week to 40 hours. Specifically, Henegar’s salary rose from $40,186 in 2013 to $44,898, Philips’

Bloomington receives IDNR forestry funding BY SANYA ALI



Kelly Smith speaks at a public hearing held to discuss the status of failing Monroe County on Tuesday at the Monroe County Community School Corporation Administration Center.

Highland Park is also partnering with IU’s School Psychology Program to support students and teachers. “We look to adjust schedules, services and resources to meet the individual needs of these students in the coming school years,” Dainton said in her presentation. Fairview has now received an F from the IDOE two years in a row. Although Fairview’s ISTEP+ scores have improved during the past year in both English/language arts and math, seven of 10 students at Fairview are reading below grade level. Some are up to two years behind. Fairview Principal Tammy Miller said Fairview began working with the students at their instructional level in reading and math in the fall but said the final Fairview plan is not yet finished. “We continue to work at it,” Miller said. “It is our responsibility to fix it.” Fairview plans to reduce its student-to-teacher ratio and use small group learning as much as possible, communicate with parents to ensure they know about their child’s

academic progress and connect with the community to gain more volunteers and resources for the school. Teacher Mary Wicker has been working at Fairview for more than 20 years and said the reading crisis has been going on for a long time. Teacher Robin Johnson said this turnaround plan has not been presented to them as an option but as a requirement. She said if children can’t read, they can’t do a math problem or go to the grocery store. “We’ve been a priority school now for two years,” Johnson said. Johnson said the writing team includes two parents and teachers from all areas of the school. Ann St. John, a volunteer at Fairview, said she was shocked at how much the Fairview community wants their students to succeed. “The Fairview Community is an awesome community,” she said. But, she said, she highly supports reading and thinks it is a problem that some children are reading two years behind grade level.

“If that’s not a crisis, I don’t know what is,” she said. Johnson said there are large reading gaps in classrooms at Fairview. She said some students in sixth grade read at a second grade level and some above a sixth grade level. She said she is excited for the new direction Fairview is heading, saying she thinks the plan will help target kids that need more attention. Fairview parent Lynette Anigbo said she believes it is important to challenge kids early on or they won’t be able to meet challenges later in life. She said perseverance is something that needs to be developed. Gloria Jacobs, a member of Fairview United Methodist Church, said the church has been trying to make connections with the school. “We are going to support Fairview Elementary in any way we can,” she said. Many in her congregation have signed up as volunteers at Fairview, herself included. “The children at Fairview are not just Fairview children,” Jacobs said. “They’re our children.”

from $36,400 to $41,600 and Dillman’s from $32,164 to $41,010. The residents called the trustee and deputy trustee increases “excessive,” while other taxing units in the county are providing 2-percent increases, according to the petition. Protesters said the caseworker’s salary increase is within line with that of other employees. However, they argue all of these salaries are based on a 40-hour week, though the township office is only open 30 hours per week. The office is open from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. In her response to the petition, Henegar argued that the salaries were increased to be more in line with comparable positions in other county townships. She cited the Van Buren trustee’s salary in 2013, which was $44,900, and the Perry Township deputy trustee’s, which was $47,362. Henegar also claimed a sufficient salary is necessary to attract a qualified manager. The Bloomington Township deputy trustee serves as office manager, overseeing day-today operations. Similarly, Henegar called




the township’s office hours “comparable” to other county townships. “The Township staff work seven to eight hours a day for the township,” she said. “The office is closed from noon to 1 p.m. in order to allow staff uninterrupted time to work on cases and other responsibilities as well as to eat lunch. Even when the doors are closed, staff is working for the township.” Dillman returns to a 40hour workweek in 2014, Henegar said. Therefore, the caseworker’s salary has been raised to be consistent with the lowest-paid Perry Township caseworker. The fourth and fifth points of the residents’ petition protested the use of taxpayer funds to provide fire services to other townships, specifically Benton and Washington

townships, unless there is an equal return in monetary support to the Bloomington Township. “The Washington and Benton Township fire contracts allow us to help ensure the residents of those townships receive adequate fire and emergency services while enabling the township to retain three paid career firefighters on every shift and ensuring the quality of service for all three townships,” Henegar said. The residents argued taxpayer funds could be put toward the Bloomington Township and not benefit other townships with much lower tax levies and rates. However, Henegar argues the contracts provide a critical service to the other townships, even if they are expensive.

The city of Bloomington received $12,500, one of the largest grants given to a community this year, from the Indiana Department of Natural Resources to fund upcoming forestry projects. Tiffany Arp, community and urban forestry coordinator for IDNR, said Bloomington was one of three cities to receive the highest award for this grant category: tree planting projects that target environmental issues. The other cities were Fort Wayne and Kendalville. “Every community applying to IDNR’s Urban Forestry grant program may apply for funds up to $12,500,” Arp said. “Bloomington put together a strong grant application, and we had the grant dollars available to fully fund their request.” The goal of the intended projects is to remove trees that have attracted beetles known as emerald ash borers, which are detrimental to the trees they infest. The fear, Arp said, is that the EAB infestation might lead to a larger invasion if left uncontrolled. The Division of Forestry hopes to remove 400 of the 800 infected trees around Bloomington and to replant 100 new trees in their place in the next five years. Arp said the personal goal of IDNR is a broad one, involving educating the public and steering environmental efforts in the right direction. “The mission of IDNR is to protect, enhance, preserve and wisely use natural, cultural and recreational resources for the benefit of Indiana’s citizens through professional leadership, management and education,” Arp said. Bloomington’s Urban Forester Lee Huss worked alongside IU School of Public and Environmental Affairs instructor Burney Fischer and graduate student Rachael Bergman to write the proposal for this year’s grant. Huss said he worked with SPEA graduate students in the past to build proposals for the city.

“The grant is very simple,” Huss said. “Create a project that meets IDNR Forestry’s criteria, produce matching funds and complete the project by the due date.” Bergman, who is currently working on dual master’s of public affairs and science in environmental science, said the team used the previous year’s proposals as models but added her research to strengthen the arguments. “I have taken Burney’s Urban Forest Management class, as well as worked with his research group for over a year, so I have a strong background in urban forestry that I utilized in writing the grant,” Bergman said. “In writing the grant, I utilized information about the effects of emerald ash borer and the importance of managing against this invasive pest.” The decision process was not a simple task, Arp said. The group judging the grant proposals this year included representatives from the Indiana Urban Forest Council, utility forestry, private industry, IU Bloomington faculty and IDNR staff. “The reviewers scored the grants they reviewed, and, based on those scores, the grants were ranked from highest to lowest,” Arp said. “We then award grant funds until we ran out of money.” Huss said he hopes that, following the success of these projects, the IDNR will accept another proposal in subsequent grant years. “When the city successfully accomplishes this task, we might be eligible to repeat this project the next time IDNR grant funds are available,” Huss said. Bergman said she was honored Huss considered her a benefit to the Parks and Recreation department. “I really enjoyed working with Lee,” Bergman said. “He has a lot of good ideas for urban forestry improvement projects in Bloomington, is invested in the city’s status of Tree City USA and understands the best management practices necessary to keep Bloomington’s trees healthy, including removing ash trees to protect against emerald ash borer.”

Americans watch porn — and lots of it. The web’s largest porn site, XVideos, receives 350 million unique visits every month, according to the Daily Mail. The same report estimated that 30 percent of all Internet traffic is devoted to pornography. However, only 25 percent of men admitted to watching online porn in a 2013 Pew Research Center survey. While most porn is aimed at men, one in three porn watchers is a woman. And it’s big money, too. Recent estimates place the revenues of the porn industry at about $10 billion. This column is not about whether America should be watching porn. The fact of the matter is that many of us do. Rather, it is about the most important people involved with pornography — the performers. Lauren A. is a college freshman at Duke University, and she’s also a porn star. She wrote about her experiences on the popular women’s website xoJane. She began performing in porn to pay for her tuition at Duke. “Doing pornography fulfills me,” she wrote. “In a world where women are so often robbed of their choice, I am completely in control of my sexuality.” She did not shy away from writing about the darker sides of the pornography industry either. “We need to give a voice to the women that are exploited and abused in the industry,” she wrote. She talked about the harassment she received from her classmates after they discovered her profession. Internet message boards were filled with insults about her. Lauren was “a huge fucking whore,” according to one anonymous commenter. Despite the abuse, Lauren plans to continue her work in porn. “I am going to graduate, I am going to pursue my dreams,” she wrote. “Just try to stop me.” Denigrating porn performers furthers the oppression of women. “Patriarchy fears female sexuality,” as Lauren succinctly put it. Women are simultaneously encouraged to have and shamed for having sex — an unconscionable standard. And ironically, considering the number of people who consume pornography, some of the people insulting porn stars are probably the same people who watch them online every day. Regardless of your opinions about pornography, voices like Lauren’s must be taken into consideration. We must realize that many of the people who perform in pornography are often trying to make a living, to further their ambitions. Some even see the experience as liberating. Just the same, those people who are forced into the industry or have horrible, traumatic experiences are hurt even more by dismissing all performers as “whores.” Porn stars are not just objects to be ogled at and insulted — they are complex human beings with a myriad of motivations and desires. They might want to be in their position, they might not. I’m not going to tell you what to think about porn. But whatever you think, don’t forget there’s a real person in front of the camera.

Music does a Hoosier good WE SAY: Indiana should invest in musical education In such a jaded world, the Editorial Board is glad to take whatever good news it can find. Consider Indiana Senate Bill 276, which plans to introduce an amendment to the Indiana Code to change standards of core curriculum from requiring “Fine arts, including music and art”, to “Fine arts, including art and music, including music ensembles”. We support this change as it specifically delineates the inclusion of music ensembles. Whereas the previous text was rather ambiguous — not requiring the use of music ensembles like choirs, bands or orchestras — we believe active participation in music complements education well. If passed, SB 276 will amend the Indiana State Code section 20-30-5, which is the mandatory curriculum required by the State of Indiana for all schools within the

state. As a result, schools would be compelled to offer or require participation in performing ensembles. The link between music and educational development by now is common knowledge, and playing an instrument or learning how to sing can deliver tangible benefits to students. Not that this should be the sole reason for learning about music, as it is a key part of our culture and our history. But there is nothing wrong with promoting music, even if Indianapolis wishes to see an improvement in test scores because of this change. There are problems with this top-down approach, however. Not all districts in Indiana have the ability or student enrollment to justify having an orchestra, a choir or a band, and not providing additional funding could prove prohibitive for those

schools. Additionally, there are concerns about certain students feeling left out and behind those who have natural talents for music. However, we hold that these criticisms are severely misguided. Though a traditional choir or orchestra may be difficult for a small school, non-traditional ensembles or chamber groups could provide distinct experiences that would not be possible with a larger ensemble. As to the question of the inherent segregation based on skill that ensembles promote, we believe that this is no different than the inherent separation in athletic ability in sports. There are freshman, junior varsity and varsity teams in high school for a reason — to provide much more specific instruction tailored to the aggregate skill level of the group as a whole. This scheme also allows for a

sense of advancement and progression as the athlete advances to the top level. The same principle applies to music ensembles. Basic skills are taught to the lower orchestras, while the repertoire and skills taught increase as the player moves up to more advanced ensembles. Far from being exclusionary, these different ensembles can prove motivating for those that want to pursue their chosen discipline. Though there are some flaws in the approach, the Editorial Board applauds SB 276 as a positive step towards improving Indiana’s schools and creating wellrounded students versed in an expansive curriculum. In an age where the arts seem to be increasingly under fire, this is welcome news indeed. @ids_opinion


The Academy continues its snubs With the Academy Awards less than a week away, it is time to assess the damage — the nomination lists. Every year it gets more disappointing how certain films and actors are either present or missing. Though I know my personal opinions differ wildly from that of the Academy and many other people, I believe we can all agree that certain victors and nominations of the past few years have been dull, predictable and sometimes unjustified. I was hopeful this year’s list would bode a new, more eclectic and refreshing selection of films, actors and actresses. I was saddened yet completely unsurprised to find that the same edgy, twisty, dark and dramatic bunch that consumed the last several Oscars earned the spots for Best Picture and an extremely repetitive list of men and women for Best Actor and Actress.

In fact, of the nominees for Best Actress, only Amy Adams hasn’t previously won an Oscar. Still, she has been nominated six times . I don’t know what happened to the old Academy Award nominations that made the show so entertaining. The best part about the awards show used to be the genre variety of the nominated films and the balance of novice and experience that made up the Best Actor and Actress nominations. It seems like the criteria for a nomination now requires a specific mold that very few films and actors fit, making the nominations and awards more predictable, boring and disappointing when certain fantastic films and people are left with no acknowledgement. For example, “Saving Mr. Banks” could have been an Academy Awardwinning film 20 years ago. The film was

compelling, had an original storyline, starred an impressive collaboration of first-rate actors and was unlike anything else that has graced the silver screen this year. Yet, due to an obvious lack of edge, the film was regrettably left with only a nomination for Best Musical Score. Just another bullet point on the list of disappointing academy decisions. The irony of it all is that when “Mary Poppins” first was released, it was nominated for thirteen Academy Awards, including Best Picture, and walked away with five Oscars. Walt Disney himself still holds the record for most Academy Awards won. Fifty years later, a movie that honors both Academy Award successes was all but ignored. This isn’t just another set of woes from me, the Disney fangirl. Snubs including Lana Del Rey’s “Young and

Beautiful,” Lee Daniels and Paul Greengrass’ direction in “The Butler” and “Captain Phillips” and Jennifer Garner’s supporting role in “Dallas Buyers Club” all prove my point. This year is a lost cause. Hopefully such deserving contenders won’t be so blatantly lacking from next year’s lists. So this Thursday, let us all cross our fingers that the Academy’s mistakes solely came in nominations, that the deserving contenders of each category do in fact come out with the win and that next year’s nominations will boast more of a well-rounded variety. Also, let Leo finally take an Oscar home. @clairemc_IDS

As things are winding down for me at IU, I took the “Your View. Your IU.” Student Experience at the Research University survey and reflected on my education. Many of you might not know this because you only know me by my little black and white mugshot and the byline next to it, but I’m a double major in English and theater and drama — which you don’t know because the Indiana Daily Student will let us have only one major in the byline. Though both of these majors are within the College of Arts and Sciences, they’ve provided me with different enough experiences to have distinct thoughts when I’m asked to “compare” the two like the SERU survey asks. Both have been strong educations, but I found myself more readily thinking about my theater and drama education whenever there was a question about student life or relationships with professors. And then I realized, it’s because the Department of Theatre, Drama and Contemporary Dance is very much on its own. All of those classes are in one building. I can see professors in their offices on the third floor. All graduate students have cubicles in the building and classmates and peers are more centrally located within the building. All in all, it’s a wonderful sense of community. And it’s that sense of community because everything exists in one building. The Department of English is located in Ballantine, but I’ve had English courses in Sycamore Hall, Woodburn Hall, Hutton Honors College and more. I’ve visited graduate student instructors in their offices in Weatherly Hall, which does in fact exist and remains in use. And I’ve generally never felt that strong sense of community that I have with my other major. The College of Arts and Sciences has never come to the realization that it’s too large. I’ve written about this topic before, and others will write on it again. But the behemoth has taken on 70 degree-granting programs that allows for about 9,000 undergraduate majors to be enrolled in the College. It’s hard to develop a sense of community within such a large system, but even harder when the College doesn’t seems to realize its girth and how departments must sprawl out all over campus in order to survive. Especially considering Provost Lauren Robel’s recently released strategic plan, we should spend more time looking at the division of the College. In the plan, Robel pushes to “create indelible connections between our undergraduates and our campus” and aims to “support a safe, vibrant and healthy community characterized by a culture of care among and for our students.” Accomplishing these goals within the College of Arts and Sciences is as easy as making more segmented, centralized departments and making a concerted effort to keep them as such. Though Robel might be talking about mental and physical health when discussing a “culture of care,” that doesn’t need to solely come from professionals in the Health Center. It can come from having a sense of belonging and support from the peers within your major. @ostrowski_s_j

The implosion of the GOP

‘Titanfall’ and the gamer schism

New Jim Crow-style antigay legislation introduced in Kansas, Idaho, Oregon, Tennessee and other states this month has proved how the GOP doesn’t realize how out of touch it is. Bills in the states listed above and in numerous others mimic a Kansas bill killed after public backlash. The bill would have allowed anyone to refuse to do business with same-sex couples by citing religious beliefs. In states such as Arizona, Hawaii and Oklahoma, the legislation takes it one step further by allowing people to refuse services or even employment to same-sex individuals — provided, of course, that they insist their religious beliefs are the cause. It’s important to mention that in most cases, the legislation covers both private business and individuals, including government employees. Essentially, these bills would legalize discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation. Now, to me, this sounds like pre-Civil Rights Movement stuff, the stuff that we thought we’d never have to deal with again after Martin Luther King Jr. said he had a dream. It’s not really clear why the GOP is set on being as farremoved from mainstream culture as possible. That’s not how you win voters over, especially the critical Millennial demographic that’s arguably the most liberal generation ever. Coming from a political party with the platform of becoming as rich as possible, legislation like this is ironic because it isolates a rapidly growing customer base — gays, lesbians and transgender individuals. “Gay” money has just as much value as “straight” money. This generalizes Republicans. They aren’t all bad. But the real irony here is that this legislation is coming from the religious right. Christian political leaders who have apparently forgotten the basis

of the very religion they think they’re upholding. It has been awhile since I’ve been to church, but I think I have an idea of what Christianity is about and what Jesus allegedly taught. We should love one other and treat each other equally. But, here’s the thing — I’ve never been denied admittance to church because of my sexuality. I realize many churchgoers might think differently than I do about homosexuality, but I’ve always been allowed to worship if I please. The religious right is using Christianity as a political tool rather than as dogma. They’re using it to justify outlandish legislation that denies basic human rights. Adam Smith, the father of modern-day economics, said the government should not have to be involved in the free market. He argued that the market should be able to govern itself. Of course, this has been proven untrue because of greed and political collusion and many other factors. So the government has to get involved and regulate the market. Anti-discrimination laws should continue to be a part of this regulation. Thanks to the Tea Party and the religious right, the GOP is shooting themselves in the foot. Young voters aren’t going to elect bigots. And because the bad apples stand out most, it seems like the entire party is full of bigots, even though that’s not true. And finally, dear homophobic and presumably “religious,” business owners — we don’t wanna buy your garbage anyway. @rileyezipper

On March 11, video game publishing mogul Electronic Arts will release its newest attempt to combat the runaway success of Activision-Blizzard’s Call of Duty franchise. Called “Titanfall,” it is a first person competitive online multiplayer shooter science fiction game. Currently, hype levels for this game are at a fever pitch, and with glowing first impressions toward what material the press and enthusiastic gamers have gotten their hands on, many are calling it a system-seller for Microsoft’s new Xbox One. But all this excitement for the supposed next big thing has also exposed a culture clash between the ranks of “hardcore” and “casual” gamers. While the battle between video game consoles has existed since the inception of the medium, the lines seem to have shifted to the very soul of what gaming

should be. Microsoft appears to have pegged its hopes with the “casual” crowd. At its reveal conference last year, the Xbox One appeared to be focused nearly exclusively on media services such as cable television, fantasy football and Internet browsing. This is in contrast to the reveal of Sony Computer Entertainment’s PlayStation 4, which emphasized features pertinent to video games. Because of its wide target audience, the new Xbox has come under fire from hardcore gamers for seeming to pander to the “dudebros,” or a person usually imagined as the stereotypical frat boy only willing to play shooters and sports games. Naturally, this has caused cries of elitism from supporters of the Xbox. Regular potshots from both sides make up the morass dubbed the “console war.”

“Titanfall” steps into this madness by promising to be the killer application for the Xbox One. Discounting its release on the Xbox 360 and PC, it appears to be an engaging and competitive game that EA is billing as the next big franchise. The criticism of this game is mainly directed at how the setup is eerily familiar to Call of Duty. In fact, “Call of Duty with robots” is the primary derisive nickname directed toward the game. The outcry is not necessarily with the game but the mounting fear, as discussed above, that the game appeals primarily to those who may not necessarily be gaming all of the time. Apart from the mechs and a new parkour mechanic, not a lot has been changed from the standard first-person shooter formula. It is this perceived lack of innovation that infuriates those who are more

artistically inclined. This extends to other franchises such as Ubisoft’s “Assassin’s Creed,” the aforementioned “Call of Duty,” and Microsoft’s “Gears of War.” All of this being said, many are excited to see a new intellectual property hit the scene at a time when console gaming seems to be locked in a rehashed cycle of shooters and more shooters. It’s not clear whether “Titanfall” will be the major hit Microsoft hopes it will be or if it’ll turn out to be a stale reworking of tired tropes. I’m certainly looking forward to finding out on March 11.


Our changing America The start of each great era is preceded by a great change. Right now is that time of change. When we look back on memorable eras, we tend to think of the culture of that time. The Roaring Twenties were characterized by parties and flapper girls. The 1960s launched the Civil Rights Movement. The ’70s were marked by great rock music. And, of course, the ’80s had a style all their own. It is now 2014, and America’s culture is changing once again. As far as music goes, artists are starting to produce innovative sounds that have never been heard before. Beyonce’s new self-titled album combines sound clips with her own style. Other artists such as Kanye West and Eminem

also applied new approaches to sound in their latest albums. This new take on music is comparable to the start of rock ’n’ roll in the ’40s and ’50s. Or perhaps it is more similar to the dawning of rap music in the early ’80s. But music isn’t the only thing changing in the United States. The culture wars continue to rage on. For example, the fight for civil rights is further escalating with the rise of our generation. The temporary defeat of HJR 3, which would’ve defined marriage in Indiana as only between one man and one woman — while also refusing to recognize civil unions — was tabled after the mobilization of progressives. The entire country is facing the same-sex marriage

debate right now, and it’s not going to last forever. One day, when our generation is talking to its grandchildren, they will find it hard to believe that people weren’t always allowed to marry whomever they wanted. I believe we’re in the beginning of a major cultural shift in our country, just like the Civil Rights Movement of the ’60s marked a new era. Along with these other changes, our era is also bringing about a change in the way that people view certain things, such as the legalization of marijuana. With Colorado’s new laws legalizing the sale and recreational use of weed, the rest of the country is bound to follow. The legalization of weed will likely be thought of in

the same way as the end of the prohibition of alcohol in 1933. America’s music is changing. Civil rights battles are being fought. People are thinking more progressively. Many of these things have happened before and have been remembered as great times in American history. That is why I believe 50 years from now, Americans will look back on the past. They will recognize these years as the dawning of a new era.


Keep your sex life to yourself For the second time since coming to IU, I had to sit through a lecture completely dedicated to sex. Among almost 400 students I sat and took notes while a guest lecturer talked on and on about the history and effects of pornography like she was talking about the development of the television. And as I’ve actually sat through a lecture on the development of the television, I can tell you the levels of attention and awkwardness were unparalleled. Maybe it’s immature of us, but when we heard the speaker say “titty fucking,” we were hooked. We closed Facebook and Pinterest, paused our European hockey games. We laughed and snickered like children. And then the lecturer started asking personal questions. She began asking if any of us watched porn. She wanted to know if we bought magazines or watched it online. She wondered about the first time we ever saw porn. No one raised their hands. No one wanted to confess their experiences with porn. It wasn’t until half way through the class that a very small number of people began raising their hands, and even fewer were willing to speak. I was relieved. As much as sex is exploited in college culture, I was genuinely glad to find there is one aspect of it that people don’t want to brag about in public. Maybe I’m a prude with an old woman’s soul, but I don’t like talking about sex and I don’t like hearing about it without a good reason. I understand the benefits of talking about sex. With your partner it makes the experience more comfortable and prevents misunderstandings. When parents talk to their kids about sex it actually encourages them to wait. And in schools, teachers have the

chance to inform students on how to prevent STDs and unplanned pregnancy. But some people take these benefits too far and suddenly they’re talking about their sex life in the middle of Starbucks with a group of strangers. With women in particular, sex talk seems to be used as a feministic ploy. There has been a double standard for years between men and women when it comes to sex. Where a single man on the prowl may be praised for his sexual behavior, a woman is shamed unless she’s married. But the playing field is evening out, perhaps due to the increased number of discussions. And that’s great. However, there is something called manners. There are things you talk about in public, and things meant to be private between your family or close friends. I don’t need to know about the personal experiences of people benefiting from talking about sex. I don’t want to know who you’re kissing, licking or humping. I don’t care what porn you’ve been watching. I have about as much interest in your sex life as in your bowel movements — which is none, because it’s personal, disgusting and needs to be kept to yourself. My point is that in this progressive college world we are currently stuck in, it’s OK to be conservative about some subjects. Not everything needs to be shared, and sex is one of them. @LexiaBanks


Time for a new Assembly Hall Assembly Hall needs to go. That statement might be heresy to many IU basketball fans. The place is literally falling apart. The basketball game against Iowa was postponed because of several seats being damaged by a large piece of metal that fell from the ceiling. Instead of giving the place a face lift, it should be flattened and rebuilt. Athletic Director Fred Glass recently said that Assembly Hall has been around for 42 years, and he wants it to be around for 42 more years. An 84-year-old stadium would put Assembly Hall in the same category as Wrigley Field — full of history, but crumbling. While the history of Wrigley may make it a cool place to visit, nobody — including

honest Cubs fans — would call it a top-tier venue. Even the Yankees moved on from their tradition-rich stadium. A big concern with a new stadium is cost. I’m sure Glass evaluated every option and concluded that renovating Assembly Hall is the most cost-effective option. The recent damage should change that equation. What will the University tolerate in the name of “tradition?” Endless repairs? More canceled games? Injuries to fans? A better fan experience is another important reason that a new basketball venue should be built. Anyone who’s sat in the corner balcony sections knows that Assembly Hall offers some horrible views. More importantly, there are only two sections that

put students near the court. A new Assembly Hall should be built like Michigan State’s Breslin Center. MSU students are all in a level next to the court. Assembly Hall can get crazy now. Imagine how difficult it would be for road teams to concentrate if the students were right on top of them. Glass and the University should use the damage incident as the centerpiece of a new fundraising plan. Cindy Simon Skjodt gave $40 million for renovations. I’m sure Glass can find another $200 million from the large pool of IU alumni. Saying goodbye to an old friend is tough, but in the case of Assembly Hall, it’s for the best. Stefan Jensen

My job as the commissioner — even though I do have a personal relationship with these people — my job is to try to get as many voices involved in this election as I can.” Thomas will work alongside Brandon Walsh, Lexy Parrell, Brandon Hafft and Brittany Skibowski, the other four members of the Election Commission. “I want to be a resource to all of the different students running and answer their questions,” Parrell said. “I don’t want to just punish them for doing things the wrong way.” The election schedule was also finalized Tuesday. All interested applicants must apply by March 14. IUSA elections will take place April 1 and 2.

monitor one’s credit report to check for any unusual accounts that may have been created. Land said as part of normal data security procedures, data are given file names and extensions that are meant to be meaningless to outside sources in order to obscure the files’ identity. He said to the best of the university’s knowledge, individuals would not be able to find the indexed data by searching for a student’s name. “We take this very seriously,” Land said. “We apologize for any concern this causes people and we will get on this to make sure this sort of mistake doesn’t happen again.” Matt Bloom contributed reporting.

Twenty students attended the callout meeting. Current student body president Jose Mitjavila discussed background information about IUSA positions, information on responsibilities the executive and legislative branch have and advice on running. “When you’re planning your campaigns, get big with it,” Mitjavila said. “Think of big things that are really gonna affect all students. You’re gonna want to do the most you can with the time you have.” After Mitjavila spoke, Thomas went over the election code with the candidates to inform them of the IUSA election rules and consequences of violating those rules. He noted the IUSA office, for current IUSA members running on an executive ticket cannot be used for campaigning. Additionally, total campaign expenditures may not exceed $3,000. The all-candidates meeting is March 24 and the debate between tickets will be March 25. March 26 is the last day for candidates to withdraw their name from the ballot.




scoring. “All their starters can shoot the ball, but they can all pass the ball,” Crean said. “A lot of times, you’re ready for one or two guys that are very good passers. Their whole team is.” After shooting 25.9 percent in the first half, Wisconsin was 13-of-21 shooting after halftime. “They got hot,” Crean said. “The basket started looking pretty big to them.” Nearly one-third of Wisconsin’s points came from the free throw line, where the nation’s No. 14 team converted 91.7 percent of its attempts Tuesday. Sophomore point guard Kevin “Yogi” Ferrell and freshman forward Noah Vonleh scored 42 of IU’s points on 17-of-34 shooting. “We were getting the ball to the guys who could score,” Crean said. Vonleh made a seasonhigh eight field goals and showed his offensive versatility. The 6-foot-10 forward was 2-for-3 from 3-point range and was able to attack Wisconsin off the dribble.


Then-freshman guard Yogi Ferrell looks to pass the ball during the Hoosiers' 64-59 loss to Wisconsin at Assembly Hall last year.

He said was able to score by keeping his dribble low, pushing the ball out in front of him and getting to the rim. In addition to Ferrell and Vonleh, only three other players scored. The rest of the team was 7-of-23 from the field. The Hoosiers out rebounded Wisconsin 33-29, but Crean said IU wasn’t able to get the putbacks it needed.

He said the team’s offense also suffered because of its lack of defensive pressure during the second half. “Because we weren’t getting stops, our break wasn’t as effective in the second half,” Crean said. “We were going against a set defense more, which they’re very good (at).” Crean said it’s important for IU to control its emotions

at this time of the year with two matchups against ranked opponents in the next five days. “It’s gonna be two teams that are coming off a loss that are gonna be really hungry to win,” he said. “We need our fans to understand that these guys are working at an incredible level and they want it.”

Graduate Student Government exceeds resolution BY DANI CASTONZO @Dani_Castonzo

The IU Graduate and Professional Student Organization has passed eight resolutions and statements this year — more than the last four academic years of GPSO administrations combined, according to President Brady Harman. In 2010 and 2011, the graduate student government did not pass any resolutions. In 2012, it passed two resolutions. “We are passing more resolutions, centralizing more resources and creating more professional development events than before, while still offering the same large number of awards and grants to help students contribute directly to their

fields,” GPSO Communications Coordinator Cayla Bellamy said. Harman attributed this increase in the administration’s productivity to a strong assembly and executive committee, as well as an increased online presence. Although GPSO makes decisions affecting the whole campus, many students seem unaware of the organization or confused about its purpose, Harman said. The graduate student government operates very similarly to IUSA. However, GPSO offers graduate students scholarship money for research and travel, among other academic uses. “GPSO is equal to IUSA in the eyes of campus administration and is

charged with providing graduate student representation in campus decisionmaking processes,” Harman said. Bellamy said the Bicycle Master Plan is one resolution that will affect the whole campus. It will make the campus more accessible and safe for cyclists. Improvements would include an extension of the Seventh Street bike lane between Woodlawn and Jordan avenues, construction of a bike path on the north side of the IU Auditorium and a bike route through the Arboretum. Of the students and employees who drive to work, 55 percent of students and 50 percent of staff said they would be more likely to bike to work if campus infrastructure improved,

according to a Transportation Demand Management study. This year’s other resolutions advocated for fossil fuel divestment, a more fair pay schedule for graduate assistants, prioritization of preferred names and support of the Freedom Indiana movement, among other initiatives. As the end of the term approaches, GPSO’s next step will be working to solicit feedback about the Strategic Plan and helping to make the transition smooth, Harman said. “Much of the first portion of my term has been spent on building a stronger organization, especially focusing on advocacy efforts,” he said. “I am pleased to report that these efforts have been successful.”

White and navy-clad sailors mopped the deck of a large wooden ship, singing and dancing in tune to the orchestra music. At the dress rehearsal of “H.M.S. Pinafore” on Tuesday, the cast’s operatic notes reverberated off the walls of the Musical Arts Center without the amplification of a single microphone. Jacobs School of Music and the Musical Arts Center will premiere “H.M.S. Pinafore,” an opera set on a British cruise liner, 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday. The opera follows low-class sailor Ralph Rackstraw, played by actor and vocal performance major Trey Smagur, as he tries to impress the captain’s daughter, Josephine, on a mid-nineteenth century British ship. “Most of the story is me trying to pine for her affection and being mocked by the members of the crew because I’m trying to woo someone on such a high level,” he said. Smagur was cast as Rackstraw after he auditioned in August at the opera “cattle-call” auditions, during which singers audition for all of this season’s opera productions. However, “H.M.S. Pinafore” is a bit different from other operas, he said. While it does include the typical conflict of love and nobility common in other operas, the notion is mocked. “Thematically speaking, the show is all about equality,” director Michael Shell said. “While the opera takes place in the 1800s, it pokes fun at the inequalities we still have in our society. Shows like this were much like the ‘Daily Show’ of their day.” “H.M.S. Pinafore” is Shell’s first production at IU. He was contacted by Timothy Stebbins, executive director of productions of the musical arts center, about directing at IU. Stebbins told Shell he had been following his career and invited him down as a guest director. “I had wanted to direct at IU for a few years but didn’t know how to make that happen,” Shell said. “This school, like the metropolitan opera, is steeped in operatic history, so this

H.M.S PINAFORE 8p.m., Feb. 28, Musical Arts Center is a huge honor for me to be here.” The opera is a comedy, which Shell said provided a lot of challenges for the cast and crew. “Unlike a drama, timing must be so specific in a comedy in order for the humor to play clearly to the audience,” Shell said. “There is very little left to chance with comedy.” Actress Eileen Jennings, who plays the role of Buttercup, said the comedy is her favorite part. “I adore comedy,” she said. “That’s the fun part of this opera, taking something archaic and making it modern and achieving laughter from it.” Along with comedy, the production includes a mix of dialogue and singing, which is different from the traditional French grand operas, actor Benjamin Smith said. Smith also plays character Ralph Rackstraw in the opera. Each opera production uses a double-cast system, meaning that they split each character between two different actors. Most operas do not have many characters, so the double-cast system gives more singers an opportunity to perform in productions, Jennings said. Each cast of actors prepared diligently for performances, sacrificing several months of hard work and preparation to pull it off. Auditions were held in August and many of the actors began looking at the music and preparing in October or November. Individual coaching began in December with musical and staging rehearsals to follow. For the past two weeks, the cast has been doing five hours of rehearsal everyday. A lot of the work has to do with getting the singers to project their voices across such a large space and getting the audience to understand the words, Jennings said. “Words are so important,” Jennings said. “We have to make sure our diction is spot on because it’s a SEE OPERA, PAGE 8

Segal to conduct at Auer Hall BY BRANDON COOK

Tonight at the Musical Arts Center, the celebrated conductor Uriel Segal will conduct two pieces from Ludwig van Beethoven and Igor Stravinsky, arguably the 19th and 20th centuries’ most influential composers. The program will include Beethoven’s famous “Eroica” Symphony in E Flat Major, as well as Stravinsky’s Violin Concerto in D Major, featuring recent graduate of Oberlin College and winner of the 2013 IU Violin Concerto Competition Eliot Heaton as soloist. The performance will take place in Auer Hall at 8 p.m. Heaton, who comes from Geneva, N.Y., has been active in violin studies since he was three and has recently maintained a rigorous performance schedule. He has performed as soloist for several world premiers as well as for the Oberlin Sinfonietta and has served as concertmaster or assistant concertmaster for the Oberlin Symphony

and Chamber orchestras, the Columbus Indiana Philharmonic and the Terre Haute Symphony Orchestra. Stravinsky is best known for his demonstrative and forward-thinking ballets, one of which, “The Rite of Spring,” caused a riot when it premiered in 1913. “The Rite of Spring” is a ballet that featured alarming musical dissonance and unconventional rhythmic patterns. However, he also composed pieces of a more traditional genre. Though it premiered eighteen years after “The Rite of Spring,” the Violin Concerto in D is considered “neoclassic,” or resembling the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries in which Joseph Haydn and Wolfgang Mozart composed. “It is very transparent, light and built according to classical form,” Segal said. “Neoclassical is very much a term used when 20th century composers were trying to imitate the classical symphony.” Stravinsky said he believed the “texture” of his

piece resembled the intimate chamber music quartets of Mozart and Haydn rather than the more spacious orchestras that featured 30 or more musicians. Segal said he believes the tradition of the piece comes from the 17th-century Baroque period. “The spirit of neoclassical music is derived from Baroque,” he said. “Even the style of the third movement is more like Baroque music.” Segal said the piece is rooted in the exaggerated and vigorous Baroque style, yet he maintains the Concerto’s Classic “lightness.” He referred to it as musical “pointillism,” borrowing the term from a style of late 19th French impressionist painters. “Stravinsky is using a really big orchestra — a very big formation of wind especially — but he is using it very sparingly,” he said. “This type of writing gives you a lot of feeling of lightness.” Segal’s themes of lightness and transparency are apparent not just in the Violin

SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA 8p.m. tonight, Auer Hall Concerto, but in Beethoven’s “Eroica” symphony as well. Recently, Segal has taken the nontraditional stance of performing Beethoven’s symphonies with smaller chamber orchestras, rather than large orchestras. His downsizing also follows the trend of what he called “the new Baroque awakening,” performing pieces in the style of how they would have sounded when they were composed. “You get the transparency and the balances which are very right for this music,” he said. “If you play it with a big, modern orchestra, you have to do many adjustments in order to have those pieces sound correctly.” One of Beethoven’s most acclaimed symphonies, the “Eroica” is also one of Segal’s favorite pieces. “It’s unique,” he said. “It has so much strength, and it’s so personal. It’s one of my most beloved pieces.”

Polynesian art to be discussed at Noon Talk FROM IDS REPORTS

Tomorrow the IU Art museum will have one of its weekly Noon Talks, this one about the revival of Polynesian dance in modern culture. “Culture Continuity through Dance” will take place from 12:15 p.m. to 1 p.m. in the Raymond and Laura Wielgus Gallery of the Art of Africa, Oceania and the Americas, on the third floor of the IU Art Museum. The discussion will be lead by IU Ph.D candidate Eric Morales. The talk will cover the emergence of Polynesian dance in disparate places such as Japan, Canada, Mexico and the United States, according to a press release. Polynesia is a sub-region of Oceania, a cluster

Polynesian dance styles are similar to the hula, often featuring women in grass skirts performing tricks with fire. The talk will explore how the revival of Polynesian dance has sparked an interest in the material culture of the area. According to a press release, the increased prevalence of the dances have motivated Polynesians to connect with their ancient roots and craft processes. There are various pieces of art from the area present in the gallery. Sarah Zinn



Jeremy Renner (middle), who appeared in “American Hustle,” used to be a make-up artist.

Make-up artist Renner takes the stage Every dirty detail of Catherine Martin’s costume designs have been extensively discussed, down to the historically-accurate Skull and Bone Yale Social Club logo stitched on the interior of Tom Buchanan and Nick Carraway’s Brooks Brothers suits in the “Great Gatsby.” And I’m not even sure they were shown in the film. I want to chat about something new. In December, “American Hustle” graced theaters with costumes done by Michael Wilkinson. The designer wasn’t designing for a timepiece quite as elegant as Gatsby, but he made up for it in 1970s gaudiness. I want to talk about Jeremy Renner, who appeared in “American Hustle.” His and Wilkinson’s past are both tied to action flicks. Wilkinson designed costumes for “300” and “Man of Steel,” and Renner played Hawkeye in “The Avengers.” Before his days as Marvel superhero, Renner spent his days as a make-up artist.

Renner cannot only cause black eyes, but do the perfect smoky eye. The actor said it was perfect for the beginning of his acting career when the alternative for most budding actors was waiting tables. Eventually, Renner got his breakout role in “The Hurt Locker.” This year, Wilkinson was nominated for the 86th Academy Awards Best Costume Design for “American Hustle.” All the films nominated were period pieces, so this was expected. However, unexpected were the nominees for Hair and Makeup. “American Hustle” did not get a nomination, though the facial hair alone for Oscar Nominee for Actor in a Leading Role, Christian Bale, was quite astonishing for the actor most of us are used to seeing clean cut in movies like “American Psycho” and “The Dark Knight.” However, what did get nominated was “The Lone Ranger” — because Johnny Depp looks terrific in face paint — “Dallas Buyers

Club,” and lastly, shockingly, “Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa.” The last received laughs and a number of critiques. However, after a VICE special on the making of the movie, Stephen Prouty’s ability to transform 41-year-old Johnny Knoxville into an 86-yearold grandpa provedto be unprecedented. The transformation, down to every airbrushed wrinkle and nose hair, had to be similar enough to make the character the same in each scene. The truth is, no matter how typical this year’s costume designs are or how atypical hair and makeup are, it’s nice to see a little influx of male creative involvement in an otherwise female-dominated category.

The huge challenge is that what is coming out of us is heard and understood.” Another challenge for the cast was nailing down the 19th-century British accents. “We had to get familiar with particular dialects,” Smith said. “You just have to get it in your body. Once you’ve done it enough, it just sort of comes out.” As the director, Shell ensures that he knows the story inside and out to make

sure he is ready to direct a show. “I tell the story of the show to someone that I know or don’t know,” Shell said. “I get all the way up to the very end, right before I reveal the ending, and I stop. If I have done it well, the person will say something like ‘Don’t stop! I want to know what happens!’ That’s when I know I am ready.” Despite all of the hard work and challenges, the cast and crew is excited for the performance. “I am most looking forward to seeing the

performers own their performances,” Shell said. “The moments I enjoy the most are when they forget they are onstage and they play the scenes truthfully in the moment. That is when the most interesting performances happen.” When the lights turn on and the actors walk onto stage, their hours of work and preparation will make for a near-perfect performance. “It’s witty, clever and never dull,” Shell said. “This is the most fun students will have in the opera house all season.”

Defensive woes lead to loss BY JOHN BAUERNFEIND @JohnBauernfeind

The IU men’s basketball team found itself in a familiar position at Wisconsin Tuesday: leading on the road going into halftime. The Hoosiers (15-12, 5-9), behind solid defense and sound 3-point shooting, led the Badgers (23-5, 10-5) 29-19 at halftime. IU was moving the ball on offense and forcing Wisconsin into tough shots. The Badgers made only one of their 10 3-point attempts in the first half and went 7-of-27 from the field. IU limited its turnovers and freshman forward Noah Vonleh hit both of his 3-point attempts. Everything was going well for the Hoosiers. But the 10-point lead fell apart in the second half. Wisconsin, which shot 25.9 percent in the first half, shot more than 60 percent in the second, on its way to winning 69-58. It was an all-too-familiar scenario for the Hoosiers. On the road against Nebraska, Minnesota and, now, Wisconsin games, in which IU had double-digit leads at some point in the first half, the Hoosiers saw another second-half lead get squandered. Against Nebraska, IU’s 13-point halftime lead was overtaken 13 minutes into the second half. Against Minnesota, IU’s six-point halftime lead had withered away nine minutes into the second half. It took the No. 14 Badgers just five minutes to reclaim the lead. Sophomore guard Kevin “Yogi” Ferrell said IU’s defense over-helped in the second half, leading to open Wisconsin shots. “We just didn’t figure it out and play defense,” Ferrell said. “We over-helped, and they knocked down some crucial threes.” Ferrell said Wisconsin’s

offense didn’t change much after the break, but rather IU’s communication on defense broke down. “They were running off of the same sets that they were running,” Ferrell said. “We just broke down defensively. (There was a) lack of communication.” IU was outscored 50-29 in the second half. The Hoosiers allowed Wisconsin to shoot 61.9 percent from the field (13-of-21) and 54.5 percent from beyond the arc (6-of-11).

Wisconsin sophomore Sam Dekker led the Badger barrage in the second half, scoring 14 points on 4-of-4 shooting. Wisconsin spread its scoring among its starting five, as each player scored in double figures. IU, meanwhile, saw 42 of its 58 points come from Ferrell and Vonleh. After the game, IU Coach Tom Crean said over-helping caused the Hoosiers’ defensive woes in the second half. “We didn’t guard the dribble nearly as well as we did in

the first half,” he said. Wisconsin began the second half on a 9-2 run and continued its offensive prowess throughout the half. Crean said IU didn’t guard well against the dribble, and it allowed Wisconsin to drive the lane and make outlet passes for open shots. “They got hot,” Crean said. “The basket started looking pretty big for them. Bottom line is they got some looks and they made them. First half they weren’t getting as many of those looks.”


What happens at halftime? If college basketball games were 20 minutes, IU would be an upper-echelon Big Ten team. Alas, the NCAA regulates 40-minute games. IU (15-12, 5-9) fell to No. 14 Wisconsin (23-5, 10-5) last night, 69-58. The Hoosiers were rolling in the first half. They led 2919 and held the usually proficient Wisconsin offense in check. Then halftime happened. For whatever reason this season, IU has had consistent trouble after halftime. And this isn’t an anomaly. It’s a definite trend. IU has played 18 games against BCS schools. That means all 14 Big Ten games, plus Washington, Connecticut, Syracuse and Notre Dame. The Kennesaw States and Stony Brooks of the world were not evaluated for the following data. Of those 18 games, IU has held a halftime lead in nine of those games. So, in the first

half against stiff competition, IU is 9-8-1 (IU and Illinois were tied at halftime on Jan. 31, and IU lost). Yet, the Hoosiers record in those 18 games is 7-11. Moreover, IU has been outscored in 11 of 18 games in the second half. Amazingly, in those 18 games, IU has actually averaged a lead at halftime. They’ve outscored opponents by an average of 1.1 points in the first half. In the second half, you guessed it, the Hoosiers continually get beat. They’ve been outscored by an average of 2.7 points in the second half. Recently, the second half woes have gotten even worse. In the last nine games, IU has led at halftime in eight of them. Eight of nine games. If I were allowed to use exclamation points, I would, to illustrate how crazy that number is. In that one game where

they didn’t have the lead, against Purdue, IU was only down by five. Those last nine games have also featured four double-digits point swings. Against Nebraska, IU was outscored by 18 in the second half. Against Minnesota — 12. Purdue — 13. And last night was the worst of all. After outscoring the scorching-hot Badgers by 10 in the first half, Wisconsin proceeded to drop 50 points on the IU defense and outscored the Hoosiers by a staggering 21 points. As a columnist, I’m supposed to assert my opinion. But, in this case, I don’t need to. The numbers speak for themselves. The great thing about numbers is they aren’t biased. They don’t have an agenda. They don’t lie. The facts are, in the last nine games, IU has held leads in eight of them. The Hoosiers

are 8-1 with halftime leads. In those nine games, IU’s actual record is 3-6. Once again — facts. Who knows what happens at halftime. Do the players just become lackadaisical and lose focus? Is IU that easy to figure out strategically, so opposing coaches just have to make a few adjustments, and then the other team can stop the Hoosiers with ease? I don’t know the real reason. It’s probably a combination of all of those things. But whatever the reason, the second half showings for the Hoosiers this season, with a few exceptions, have been abysmal. That’s a fact.

Andrew Havill had his best performance of his collegiate career at the Snowman Getaway in Goodyear, Ariz., Tuesday. The freshman tied for seventh as an individual with a three-round score of 208 (-8). The Hoosiers finished ninth at the tournament. IU’s other freshmen, Will Seger and Keegan Vea, contributed the team’s second and third-best scores. Seger shot a 213 (-3), including a first round score of 68 (-4), and Vea finished the tournament just one stroke behind Seger at 214 (-2). “I can’t remember a better tournament for our freshmen class,” IU Coach Mike Mayer said. “The freshmen led the way, and I think we’re going to continue to see improvement.” The Hoosiers were tied for eighth place after the first two rounds on day one of the tournament, but dropped into ninth after Tuesday’s final round. Mayer said senior David Mills played his worst tournament in a long time. Mills, a consistent score leader for the Hoosiers, finished in a tie for 55th with a score of 221 (+5). “For whatever reason, he just wasn’t comfortable with his game for this tournament,” Mayer said. “It was not a normal tournament for David.” Despite not reaching the team’s goal of winning the tournament, he said

his team will focus on the positives going forward. One of IU’s biggest positives was having three freshmen record the team’s lowest scores. Havill said the freshmen have been pushing each other since before they arrived on campus. “We all came in as friends and knew we all could play,” he said. “We’re not all playing to our full potential, but we’re getting close.” Seger said the team struggled. “Even though I was the lowest on the team, I still wasn’t really excited about my performance,” he said. “We got ninth out of 17 teams, so that’s not what we were looking for.” Sophomore Max Kollin and junior Nicholas Grubnich rounded out the top five for the Hoosiers. Kollin finished with a 221 (+5) and Grubnich shot a 226 (+10). The other IU individuals competing were junior Andrew Fogg and senior Hugo Menendez, who finished with a 219 (+3), and 220 (+4), respectively. IU’s next competition is the Talis Park Challenge March 16-17 in Naples, Fla. The 18-day layoff is the second longest of the spring season for the Hoosiers. Mayer said the team has several things to focus on during that stretch. “Trying to get the weather better is what we’re going to focus on,” Mayer said. “Other than that, we’re going to focus on mental strength and training. Another thing is we’re really going to stress simple fundamentals.”

Swimming and diving prepare for Big Tens have won the past three Big Ten titles. They enter tonight at No. 2 in the CSCAA rankings. “They are consistently in the top 10,” Thermos said. “We’re finally back in the top 10 since the Mark Spitz era.” The Hoosiers will face off against four other top-25 teams aside from Michigan. Twenty swimmers will compete. IU Coach Ray Looze said the key will be getting contributions from every swimmer. “We’re going to need depth,” he said. “I’m interested to see what our last five or six guys do. If our last six guys score, we’ve had the best meet we can have. If somebody beats us, more power to them.” Senior Cody Miller will try to become the first swimmer in Big Ten history to win four consecutive titles in the 100-yard breaststroke. Only 10 other swimmers in history have won an event four years in a row. In the 100-yard backstroke, senior James Wells will compete for a thirdstraight Big Ten title. Freshmen Anze Tavcar and Max Irwin earned the top times for IU this season in the 50-yard freestyle and 100-yard freestyle, and the 100-yard butterfly, respectively. Looze said despite having more depth than last year’s Big Tens, it’s all about how his young swimmers will react in a high-pressure situation.

BY GRACE PALMIERI @grace_palmieri

The IU men’s swimming and diving team will compete for its first Big Ten title since 2006 at the Big Ten Championships today in Ann Arbor, Mich. Last season, the Hoosiers finished second at Big Tens. They have finished in the top five for 11 consecutive years. Entering this week at No. 6, the Hoosiers look for its first title in seven years and 25th overall team title. “The lights are on. It’s the big show,” junior Yianni Thermos said. “It’s where some of the fastest swimmers come together to really hash it out. Just the energy level at Big Tens is indescribable. It’s different than any other meet in the country.” IU’s No. 6 ranking is the highest yet this year. The team started the season 0-4 but hasn’t dropped a dual meet since Oct. 25, when it lost to then-No. 1 Michigan. When competition begins tonight, there will be no question who’s the team to beat. “Michigan,” junior Mike Hurley said. “Michigan has always been the toughest competition. They’re the reigning NCAA champions, and we’re going to be facing off head to head against them.” In addition to winning the national championship last season, the Wolverines

Senior Michael Mohler swims in the 200-yard butterfly during the meet against University of Kentucky and University of Tennessee on Nov. 1, 2013, at the Counsilman-Billingsley Aquatic Center. Mohler finished with a time of 1 minutes 54.06 seconds.

“We’re deeper than we were last year, but we still have freshmen and guys that have never scored,” he said. “Until they get put under the spotlight, that pressure-packed situation, you don’t know how they’re going to react.” In the diving well, senior Darian Schmidt will try to repeat as the 1-meter springboard champion. He was the 3-meter champion in 2012. Schmidt was named the

2013 Big Ten Diver of the Year and Big Ten Diver of the Championships. Of the eight divers who will compete this week, five are seniors. IU Diving Coach Drew Johansen said having veteran experience not only helps the seniors prepare individually, but it has an affect on the underclassmen as well. “With such a veteran team, they know what’s coming,” he said. “They’re

preparing themselves mentally as their physical taper is happening. “Then, with the other four underclassmen, it’s a nice balance. You have that youthful exuberance ready to just charge in there and take them all on. Then you have the wise veteran that knows how to pace themselves and be ready for the moment.” Since the end of the regular season, all the swimmers and divers have been

resting both physically and mentally. Hurley said the mental aspect will be crucial to bringing a Big Ten title back to IU. Focus is essential to success, he said. “When you lift your head up, that’s when you lose things,” he said. “If you just stick to your plan and go out there and execute it without any thought about it, that’s when championships are won.”
