IU enters agreement with DOE over Title IX By Peter Talbot | @petejtalbot

Band of brothers


Little-known team contributes to women’s basketball’s success By Jordan Guskey | @JordanGuskey

To the average fan, the four IU students walking across Branch McCracken Court might as well have been randomly selected from the student section and handed matching shirts. Their faces, while well-known to IU women’s basketball players and staff, are unfamiliar to Hoosier nation. Even longtime PA announcer Chuck Crabb’s storied Assembly Hall boom can only give their names so much weight. “Seth Cooley.” “Tanner Farmwald.” “Matt Siegel.” “Austin Halcomb.” Four of 14, they make up the majority of the seniors on IU Coach Teri Moren’s male practice team — the “black squad” — a special branch of the basketball family that sweats each week alongside her Hoosiers. The aftermath of IU’s seventh straight Big Ten win is a celebratory one. Tyra Buss and Amanda Cahill just combined to hang 53 points on Nebraska on senior day, and Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall will soon run their tribute videos. But for the first time on senior day during Moren’s tenure, graduating black squad members are getting their own moment. Near half court the coaching staff thanks them one by one. This isn’t forced pageantry. Each embrace is genuine. * * * Some were born to wear candy stripes. None could stay off the court. Every practice player has their own story, some intertwining, for how they found out about the male practice squad IU’s women’s basketball pro-

gram uses, and each one understands their role is to make the team better. This band of brothers, named after the practice jerseys they wear, don’t get the recognition the coaches and student-athletes think the group deserves. “Our black squad does this really just out of the love that they have for the game, the kindness of their hearts that they want to help us,” Moren said. “Those guys are our friends, we consider them a part of our family, and I coach them up sometimes just as hard as I coach up our group.” The program aims for about half the practice squad to show up to each

practice, a time commitment of about 10 to 15 hours each week, depending on the team’s schedule and each student’s availability. Ashley Williams, IU’s first-year graduate assistant in charge of the group, values their commitment and effort. Physical skill and basketball IQ are great, but if no one shows up, none of that matters. The logic behind a male practice team is if Moren’s student-athletes can guard guys who are bigger, stronger and more athletic, they should be able to guard the women they play against. However, it’s not a free-for-all. “There are a couple guys who are

not realistic for any type of female player that we’re going to see,” Williams said. “So there are definitely times where I have to go, ‘Hey, maybe tone it down, go 70 percent today.’” But, if IU is facing a shot blocker like Purdue’s Ae’Rianna Harris, one of the nation's leading rim protectors, Williams will tell a practice player like Austin Halcomb to swat what he can. Halcomb often scouts opposing bigs. If a guard is a shooting threat, someone like Seth Cooley or Tanner Farmwald won’t hesitate on an open jumper. “We have a lot of teams that are similar to them who are very athletic. It helps us,” junior forward Kym Royster said. “We get used to that. It helps us handle pressure.” Williams has her scouts come to practice about 20 minutes early so they can learn plays IU’s next opponent runs while the team is watching film. Sometimes, at games, black squad members will sit together and watch opponents run the plays they practiced. “It’s amazing,” Halcomb said. “They’ll set up in a certain set and we just look at each other and go, ‘Oh yeah, this is what they’re going to do. This is exactly how the play is going to go.’” They do not get animated much during games, though. Since they are around the program so much, when the clock is running they let the likes of SEE BASKETBALL, PAGE 8

Concert raises money for Middle Way House Middle Way House’s third annual benefit “Love Songs for a Lasting World” will take place 7:30 p.m. Feb. 24 at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater. It will honor the organization's former executive director, Toby Strout, who died in 2017 at age 71. All proceeds will benefit Middle Way House. Middle Way House seeks to bring awareness to domestic abuse, sexual violence and human trafficking, as well as helps victims escape their situations. Its services include emergency shelter housing, transitional housing, legal help, child care and more. The 90-minute performance is produced by Toby Strout's daughter, Anna Strout, and Bloomington-based composer Malcolm Dalglish. It will feature songs by Dalglish, as well as performances by IU students and his group, the Ooolites. It will also present work by choreographer Jun Kuribayashi, a former artistic associate with Polibulos, a modern dance company. Anna Strout's husband, actor Jesse Eisenberg, is a major sponsor and supporter of Middle Way House.

Challenging her limitations, Sneha Dave neared the end of her journey to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro. After powering through dizziness and days of climbing, she was greeted by forceful, cold winds, she said. She could have stopped. But she didn't. “It was worth the climb to see the Kilimanjaro summit sign in person,” Dave said. Dec. 25, 2017, Dave, a sophomore at IU, successfully climbed to the highest point in Africa. Located in Tanzania, Mount Kilimanjaro is the fourth of the seven highest summits in the world. Dave was accompanied by her parents and older sister in the the mountainside journey, which lasted a total of seven days — five to ascend and two to descend. Adding to the difficulty of the climb, Dave made the 19,341-foot trek while enduring health complications. At age 6, Dave was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis, an autoim-

IU entered an agreement with the Department of Education following multiple federal investigations of the University’s sexual misconduct policies. The resolution will seek the creation of two “working groups,” or committees, organized to study IU’s practices of sexual assault training, education and prevention. While the resolution stated IUBloomington’s involvement in this agreement did not reflect any wrongdoing found in the DOE’s review of University policy, IU will continue reflection of its sexual misconduct response and education efforts, while providing updates to the Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights. As of last semester, five federal investigations into IU’s sexual misconduct practices had been opened — the first dating back to 2014. Of the 242 postsecondary institutions that were under investigation, IU was one of three schools with at least five open cases. It is unclear if all five have been resolved. “It certainly doesn’t mean anything we’re doing stops, but it resolves what has been a very thorough, comprehensive review by Office of Civil Rights,” said Emily Springston, IU’s Title IX coordinator. The OCR requested IU create its working group and greek working group by June 30, 2018. By that time IU is also requested to provide a written narrative for the current academic year that shows IU completed specific training and education programs. The general working group will help identify areas of concern where sexual misconduct may be more prevalent to suggest changes to existing response and prevention plans. The greek working group will do much of the same work to address sexual misconduct, specifically within greek life. The group is also asked to consult with either someone from within IU or an outside consultant as an expert who has experience preventing sexual misconduct in greek organizations. “While this action resolves OCR’s audit, it does not end IUBloomington’s commitment or obligations to our students, faculty and staff,” Provost Lauren Robel said in a press release. “We take this issue very seriously and will continue to provide rigorous education and training as we work to create a safe campus environment.”

BFC discusses proposed changes to its constitution By Peter Talbot | @PeteJTalbot

Amendments to the Bloomington Faculty Council constitution were proposed at the council's Tuesday meeting, drawing lengthy discussion about language that specifies who is considered faculty.


Monroe County Sheriff Brad Swain speaks about how the purchase of the armored vehicle is to protect officers of Bloomington while a member of the audience shouts slurs at him. Swain and several family members of police officers spoke in favor of the armored vehicle Tuesday, Feb. 20.

Citizens sound off on armored truck By Caroline Anders | @clineands

The Bloomington City Council reconvened for what it called a “Town Hall Listening Session” Tuesday night in response to backlash against the city’s recent purchase of an armored truck. Each member of the public was given time in three-minute blocks to say anything they wanted to the council about the purchase. The council did not reply to any questions or statements. Community members expressed frustration with this setup. Some said the meeting was meaningless without replies from the council. City Council President Dorothy Granger said the council will research the questions asked and get back to those who asked them. She did not say how long this would take. The meeting opened with the mayor and police chief both saying they should have rolled out the announcement in a different way.

Bloomington Police Department Chief Mike Diekhoff said they dropped the ball on that. Citizens stood up and spoke on both sides of the issue. Some were teachers, some parents and some law enforcement officers or their spouses. Some were public officials. Of the police wives who spoke, a few got choked up when they talked about their husbands going to work. All said they just wanted the police to be safe. A man who called himself as a conservative said he saw many Republicans speak out against the purchase at the meeting but not identify themselves as such. He called the truck a bipartisan issue. At one point, a woman asked anyone in the room who had questions about this purchase to raise their hands. Almost every city council member raised theirs. Vauhxx Booker is the organizer of Bloomington's Black Lives Matter group, which planned the protest of the truck at Mayor John

Hamilton’s State of the City address. Booker said he talked with Diekhoff and Hamilton before the town hall. When Monroe County Sheriff Brad Swain stood up to speak, someone yelled, “Fuck the police.” “If the blue are engaging in this process, you can engage in this process,” Booker said from his seat. “Let the sheriff speak.” Swain said his department doesn’t have the authority to call in military help when something goes wrong. If a school shooting happens, local law enforcement responds, he said. Many talked about how they fear police will misuse the vehicle. One man brought a box of books with him. He tossed them on the ground in front of the council members’ bench as he spoke. One was titled “The Blue Wall of Silence: Secrets Revealed Behind Police Abuse and Corruption.” Some said they trust Hamilton and Diekhoff but are concerned about how the truck could be used under different leadership.

Others said this purchase should come alongside police de-escalation and sensitivity training. “Police are not soldiers and should not have a soldier’s mentality,” Bloomington resident Scott Tibbs said. Judy DeMuth, superintendent of the Monroe County Community School Corporation, said she supports the purchase. She said the community needs to trust the professionals to make this decision. Peter Dorfman, who said his specialty is public relations, offered the council what he called professional advice. “If Bloomington were paying me," he said. "I would tell them to call this off." There are three more opportunities for the public to ask questions about the truck next week, Granger said. Booker and other activists called for one of the times of these meetings to be changed so it doesn’t conflict with a school board meeting. Diekhoff said he would see what he could do.

Water hazards create business venture By William Mulloy | @WilliamMulloy

Water hazards can frustrate many golfers but for Mark Schmitt, they created a business opportunity. “It all started when I was 10 and the golf pro caught me swimming in his ponds,” Schmitt said. Schmitt is the owner of Rawhide Golf Ball Co., a golf ball retrieval business based in Fort Branch, Indiana, that dives for balls and resells them for a fraction of the market price. In his youth, Schmitt spent his summers at Rolling Hills Country Club, just outside of Evansville, Indiana, fishing golf balls from the sides of ponds and reselling them to the players until the golf pro struck a deal with him. “I would collect the golf balls and sell them to him instead, where he would wash them and resell them from the shop,” Schmitt said. That was his first business transaction in 1975. Today, Rawhide Golf deals with over 150 golf courses and driving ranges around Indiana and still does business with the pro shop at Rolling Hills. For Schmitt’s 16th birthday his parents bought him a scuba diving suit, which allowed him to dive to the deepest parts of the ponds and retrieve more and more balls. “More balls, equals more

money,” Schmitt said. This led to Schmitt looking for more efficient ways to retrieve golf balls, so he began to build. Schmitt built several models until he perfected what he calls “the roller system”. This system involves two tractors on either side of the pond connected to a wench and a roller that glides across the bottom of the pond collecting balls. Schmitt said the roller system collects 90 to 95 percent of the balls in the pond and allows Schmitt to work nine to 10 months out of the year. This is opposed to before, when he could only dive for five months. “After he created the roller he had to hire me,” Michelle Straw said. Straw is Schmitt’s secretary and assis-

tant of seven years. She said she was hired after he created his rollers because he saw an influx of over 300,000 balls. Straw is one of three employees at Rawhide Golf Ball Co. Once the balls are retrieved from the ponds, they are dumped into an acidic wash to remove any dirt from them. Then they are sorted by brand and inspected by Schmitt and Straw Balls are given an “A”, “B” or “C” grade depending on quality. “A” balls are sold for half the price, “B” balls are sold for a quarter of the price and so on and so forth, Schmitt said. Roughly 30 percent of the balls Schmitt harvests are in proper condition to resell, so the other 70 percent of the balls are stripped

and sold to driving ranges as practice balls. Ronald Dingus, a golf pro at Hidden Hills Golf Course, has been letting Schmitt dive in his water hazards for 15 years. “It just makes a lot of sense financially,” Dingus said. “We let him in our ponds, and he gives us a deal on the balls he sells us.” Schmitt said business is booming, but it hasn't always been easy. “Winters are a famine,” Schmitt said. Schmitt has developed an algorithm in which he can predict when and where the most rounds of golf are played. Schmitt even has a knack for knowing which kinds of balls are at the bottom of each pond. It depends on if the course is public or private along with other factors like the location of the pond. “If the hazard is in a tricky spot, the golfer isn't going to use a nice ball,” Schmitt said. Schmitt has only played one nine-hole round of golf and doesn't care much for it because he fears it will distract him from what he loves most, diving for golf balls. Apart from snapping turtles and leeches, Schmitt’s biggest concern while diving is water pressure. The deeper you dive, the harder it is to see, and it's easy to become disoriented if you aren’t properly trained, Schmitt said.

Fourteen proposals to amend the council’s constitution were listed on the agenda, but discussion only made it to the first eight proposals, meaning the last six will be tabled until the next meeting, Tuesday, March 20. Tuesday’s Proposals The first two proposals, which help define the non-tenure-track academicappointees considered to be faculty, drew the most discussion. The second proposed amendment allows changes to be made to non-tenure-track faculty titles without having to make changes to the constitution. However, some were concerned making the language more generic could allow future categories of non-tenure-track faculty to be considered faculty without the BFC deciding whether or not they fit that designation. Four proposals will be discussed further at the March 20 meeting before being voted on at a later meeting. This delay allows changes to be made to the proposals before voting. The other four discussed will be voted on at the March 20 meeting. Most proposed amendments would make the language of the constitution more generic so that changes do not need to be made as frequently or so that the constitution can be in line with how the council actually operates. For example, one section proposed to be amended says the Bloomington Provost will report on the state of the campus in the fall, while Provost Lauren Robel will give her state of the campus speech in the spring this year. The amendment would change the section to say the

provost will report on the state of the campus at least once a year. Proposed amendments need a majority vote from the BFC. Then, the proposed amendments will be announced to all faculty. All faculty on campus will have 15 days to meet as a whole if needed and discuss the proposals before all faculty vote. Again, a majority vote is needed to pass the proposed amendment. Future Proposals One proposed amendment will establish election units on the council for clinical appointees, lecturer appointees, professor of practice appointees and research scientist/scholar appointees. The current constitution gives professors of practice no representation on the BFC, and there was only one representative for the other three non-tenure track faculty ranks that will now have election units. Other proposed amendments include cutting the amount of council members elected from the campus at large from 10 members to five and eliminating two of the four graduate student representatives from the voting membership of the council. This will help keep the council at a manageable size to account for the proposed increase in non-tenure-track faculty representation on the council. Other Action The council began the meeting by reading a memorial letter for Bruce Cole, a distinguished professor emeritus and former IU trustee who died Jan. 8. "We at IU are extremely proud to serve as Bruce's academic home for so many years and benefit from his extraordinary accomplishments and service to the University,” said Eliza Pavalko, vice provost for faculty and academic affairs. “He will be greatly missed, and our thoughts and condolences go out to his family, friends and former colleagues here and all around the nation."

North Walnut, SR 37 interchange to close temporarily From IDS reports

Starting the first day back from spring break, access to the partial interchange at North Walnut Street and State Road 37 will be temporarily closed. This shutdown comes as part of the Indiana Department of Transportation’s I-69 Section Five project, in which SR 37 is being upgraded to limited-access interstate standards to later be designated as Interstate 69. The only access to the interstate is planned to come in the form of interchanges. Section Five of the project runs from just south of Bloomington to just south of Martinsville, Indiana, covering about 21 miles. Andy Dietrick, a spokesperson for the I-69 Section Five project, said the par-

tial interchange will be shut down in order to completely reconstruct the on and off ramp lanes, repave the area and work on the slopes and drainage. He said changing the sloping of the interstate helps with the drainage of the roadway. The construction at the North Walnut Street interchange was originally supposed to begin March 1 and would have affected some students leaving for and returning from spring break. However, a change in start date came in recent weeks, Dietrick said. Hannah Boufford IDSNEWS.COM MAP | Take a look at our map online to find out more about suggested alternative routes.

Five IU seniors to be honored By Andrew Hussey and Jake Thomer

Friday night will be the last time five IU seniors will take the floor during the regular season at Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall. They will be honored after the Hoosiers take on Ohio State. Here is what each player has accomplished during their time at IU: Collin Hartman The Indianapolis native has been with the IU basketball program for the past five seasons, providing different roles in each of his seasons with the Hoosiers. Hartman went through Senior Day last season after missing the entire year due to a knee injury, but he returned this year for his fifth year to be a part of Archie Miller’s first season in Bloomington. This past season, he has been plagued with various injuries that have limited his minutes and his effectiveness. He is averaging 4.5 per game and 2.9 rebounds per game. In his junior season in 2015-2016, he was a key part of IU’s Big Ten Championship team, starting in 24 games. As a sophomore, he played in 32 games and was an unstoppable weapon from the three-point range. He shot 47.5 percent from three and during conference play, he had the second-best three-percentage in the Big Ten. Freddie McSwain Jr. In the final stretch of his career at IU, McSwain has played his best basketball. After transferring from Neosho Community College in Kansas, he struggled to find a big role for the Hoosiers in his first season. However, with IU lacking big men this season, McSwain has emerged as one of the key figures in helping IU have success in the Big Ten. While he is only averaging 4.1 points per game, he has joined the starting lineup since the Michigan State game on Feb. 3. In that game, he had a career-high 16 rebounds. So far this season, he has nearly doubled his minute and point total from last season while also playing a key role for IU’s much-improved defense. One of the key areas where McSwain has helped the Hoosiers is on the offensive glass, averaging two offensive rebounds per game. Robert Johnson As Johnson nears the end of his senior season, he ranks in the top 25 of IU’s all-time scoring leaders and the top five in career made 3-pointers. The Virginia native has started more than 100 games in his time as a Hoosier and provided a con-

sistent presence in the IU backcourt with at least 22 starts in each of his four seasons with the program. The former top 100 recruit entered IU as a freshman in 2014 and made an immediate impact while starting in 33 of 34 games. He shot 41.5 percent from behind the arc in his first two seasons before becoming more of an all-around scorer as an upperclassman. This year as a senior, Johnson struggled with his consistency in the first half of the season but has turned it on in Big Ten play. Johnson is averaging 14.0 points and 4.6 rebounds per game while shooting 40 percent from the 3-point range in conference games. Against Iowa on Feb. 17, Johnson tied a school record for made 3-pointers with nine. Josh Newkirk After playing 70 games in two seasons with University of Pittsburgh, Newkirk came to IU in 2015 as a transfer and sat out while redshirting during the Hoosiers’ run to the Sweet Sixteen in 2015-16. The following year, Newkirk moved into IU’s starting lineup as a junior and played in all 34 games. Newkirk had the best season of his college career in 2016-17 as he scored 9.0 points per game and led IU with 108 assists. He had two 20-point performances, including a career-high 27 points in a triple overtime win against Penn State. This season, Newkirk has struggled at times and is shooting only 30.3 percent from the 3-point range, but he has still appeared in each of IU’s games. He has scored more than 500 points in nearly two full seasons as a Hoosier. Tim Priller Priller has been a fan and student favorite in his four years at IU after coming to the Hoosiers from Richland, Texas. “Priller Time,” as it is known when he checks in the game, has always been sure to bring the crowd to its feet. He has appeared in 35 games in his time at IU and scored 26 points to go along with 21 rebounds. Priller’s best season came as a junior in 2016-17 when he scored 19 points in 27 minutes across nine appearances. Against Purdue in February of 2017, Priller scored six points in five minutes off the bench. He also made an appearance and provided a spark in a one-point win over Northwestern that season. Priller has appeared in four games this season and continued to do his trademark hustle. He scored a point and collected two rebounds late in a win against Minnesota on Feb. 9.

Student organization seeks to build cohesion By Emily Issacman @emilyisaacman

While there are hundreds of service organizations registered on IU's beINvolved page, there is a lack of cohesion among them, according to Christina Alway, president of Student United Way. The new organization is creating a network between existing organizations to help students navigate the abundance of volunteer opportunities at their disposal. “Especially being a Big Ten school, there's so many organizations and so many clubs that you would never know existed unless you have some way to find them,” senior Lauren Mardis, director of internal affairs, said. SUW is a branch of the Monroe County chapter of global nonprofit, United Way. The international organization partners with businesses, nonprofits and governments around the world to engage in community service revolving around three pillars: education, health and income, according to its website. “We see Student United Way as a chance to introduce people to United Way as a concept and a state of giving,” said Trent Deckard, resource development director for UW of Monroe County. The student group is forming partnerships with other organizations on campus to connect students to service opportunities. In addition to promoting service events led by its partners, SUW will create volunteer times in the community specific to its core members. Alway, who also interns at United Way of Monroe County, created the organization in fall 2017. While most student groups have business structures with presidents, vice

presidents and membership dues, Alway set up SUW as a regular nonprofit. Mardis said the organization's flexible requirements help members stay focused on service, rather than rules and regulations. “By setting it up like a nonprofit, we also have the ideals of a nonprofit,” Mardis said. "We won't lose sight of what we're actually created for." Positions on the club’s board of directors mirror jobs at the local organization. “If we ever have questions, we can connect with someone who has the job in the real world,” freshman Sheridan Smith, director of service opportunities, said. Alway said this gives students interested in nonprofit management a chance to experience what the job actually entails. Alway said a

class she took last fall about starting a nonprofit helped her define the club’s mission, values and vision. One representative from each of SUW's partner organizations will serve on SUW’s board. These liaisons will present upcoming volunteer opportunities at SUW meetings, providing them a larger audience and exposing students to more options. “It's like a buffet of opportunities," Mardis said. Despite sharing events, Mardis said she doesn’t believe the organization will pull members away from participating in other groups. “Our favorite thing to do is take our volunteer list and give it to other organizations,” Smith said. Many student organizations have strict meeting requirements that often con-

flict with other organizations' meeting times, Mardis said. SUW members can go to one, bi-monthly meeting and learn about opportunities from several organizations at once. Alway said the organization will send newsletters alerting members to service opportunities happening on campus and in the community. Melissa Pham, president of Operation Smile at IU, said she sees SUW as a good opportunity to increase participation in her organization, which raises money for children with cleft lips or cleft palates. “It’s really hard to get people to join and distinguish yourself,” Pham said. SUW has formed eight partnerships to date: Medlife at IU, Middle Way House Chapter at IU, Nonprofit

Leadership Alliance, Operation Smile at IU, Pi Lambda Phi, Royal Encounters, Students Against Mass Incarceration at IU and SPEA Serves. SUW previously existed at IU years ago, but Alway has not been in contact with the previous leaders. She has been working closely with staff at UW of Monroe County to develop the organization. “We are extremely supportive of the Student United Way chapter getting off to a good start,” Deckard said. A staff member attends every SUW meeting, mentoring the students who lead the organization. “I don't want to create a service organization that doesn't need to be created,” Alway said. “If there's already all these things happening, why create another one? We’re hoping to fill the gaps.”

Reported social media threats spur five arrests By Caroline Anders | @clineands

Five people, three minors and two adults, were arrested Friday in relation to an investigation of social media threats. The threats, which involved guns — later found to be BB guns — were posted to Instagram by two students at Fairview Elementary School. Sgt. Dana Cole said incidents like this are not uncommon after a national event like the shooting in Parkland, Florida, on Wednesday. A representative of the school went to the Bloomington Police Department headquarters Friday and showed officers the Instagram posts.

IU cyber experts publish research

The posts included multiple photos and a video featuring two Fairview Elementary students holding what appeared to be guns. In the video, one of the students held one resembling an AK-47 and made threats toward another student and her brother, according to a press release from BPD. The weapons were all BB guns, and the students pictured were 11- and 12-year-old boys, according to the release. According to the press release, the student said the weapon was real and said the students he was threatening were going to be “lit up” in the video. Police located both boys and one of them said the video was posted during

a birthday party at a residence on the east side of Bloomington. The other boy’s parents did not let him speak to investigators. The boy who spoke with police said the threats were related to a “dating relationship” between two of the kids involved, according to the release. Both boys were taken to the Southwest Indiana Regional Youth Village, a juvenile detention center in Knox County. Police went to the location of the birthday party and knocked on the door. There was no initial answer. Laquita S. Perry-Leverston, 33, eventually came outside and told officers they needed a warrant to search the house. She then showed them

the assault-style gun from the video and some kind of pistol, both of which were in the trunk of her car. Perry-Leverston also gave police another replica pistol, which according to the release was not related to the investigation. She said she had no other weapons. Police found one other gun under a bed after searching the house. All three guns were BB guns. Before BPD began the search, officers and detectives removed younger individuals from the house. Perry-Leverston’s son, 17, told officers they were not going to touch him, according to the release. He was arrested and handcuffed for resisting police. While in custody, he

threatened to kill an officer and tried to kick out the rear window of a patrol car. The 17-year-old was tried in adult court for a December 2016 armed robbery and was on probation for that crime. He was booked into the Monroe County Correctional Center because of his adult probation status. Perry-Leverston and her husband, 37-year-old Paris R. Leverston Sr., were arrested for disorderly conduct when they were “loud and disruptive” in response to their son being arrested. Perry-Leverston was also charged with resisting law enforcement for pulling away from officers. Both were booked into the Monroe County Correctional Center.

With concerns about Russian interference in the 2016 elections still swirling, IU researchers are advocating for a cybersecurity agency similar to the National Transportation Safety Board as a way to prevent future attacks, according to an IU press release. A research paper, which appears in the Albany Law Journal of Science and Technology, was created by Austin Brady, a degree candidate at IU Maurer School of Law, and Scott Shackelford, the director of the Ostrom Workshop Program on Cybersecurity and Internet Governance at IU. "In the wake of a series of destabilizing and damaging cyberattacks ranging from Equifax to Yahoo, there has been a growing call for the U.S. government to establish an analogue of the National Transportation Safety Board to investigate cyberattacks," the authors wrote according to the research paper's abstract. Shackelford and Brady, in their research, look at solutions ranging from public-private partnerships to cybersecurity insurance programs to help lessen the risk of cyberattacks and hacking to individuals and corporations. The cybersecurity board, and any research coming out of that board, could be funded by various groups or organizations and help provide additional transparency for webbased attacks and hacking attempts. “Funding could come from interested stakeholders, such as insurance companies,” according to their research, “because such secondary markets would benefit from greater clarity surrounding the attribution of claims, as well as more information about the utility of various cybersecurity best practices.” There are limitations to such an idea, as Brady and Shackelford both mention, and according to the release, a large concern is whether such an advisory board on cybersecurity could respond in a timely manner to cybersecurity threats. However, such a board would be able to function, at the very least, as a tool for more knowledgeable and effective policy, according to the release. Dominick Jean

The day Dave received her first operation, registered nurse Philip Flory was working. Every surgery after that, she requested Flory as her nurse. “Having people you can rely on in your most vulnerable moments is powerful,” Dave said. “He’s one of my favorite people.” To provide others with resources they may need to overcome illnesses similar to hers, Dave developed nonprofit organizations, the Crohn's and Colitis Young Adults Network and the Health Advocacy Summit. “I learned a lot from her,” Flory said. “Not only about her time she spent as an inpatient but just her general outlook on life. Seeing her persevere through her struggles and still have the desire to help out others is inspiring.” After climbing a mountain of hardships brought on by her condition, Dave was ready to climb a real one.

lence and sexual assault were," Eisenberg said. Anna Strout said the performance is open to audiences of all ages and will end with pie around a bonfire outside next to the theater. Toby Strout followed her passion for social justice by moving to Bloomington to earn her Ph.D. in instructional systems technology from IU’s School of Education. In 1987, she began her 30-year tenure as executive director of Middle Way House. Anna Strout said her mother was active in the Bloomington community and guest lectured at IU to spread awareness of sexual violence issues. Middle Way House is the best run organization he has worked with, Eisenberg said. "As an actor and somebody in the public eye, I'm asked to be involved in a lot of charities and nonprofits," Eisenberg said. "I've never seen an organization run so efficiently, where every dollar is spent so responsibly, where every employee feels respected and is part of the mission of the organization." IU senior Brian Kress, a theater and drama major, will perform. As Dalglish’s assistant, Kress runs rehearsals and does administrative tasks. Kress said he would sing “Blackbird” by the Beatles, as well as a number of Dalglish’s own compositions, including “The Broken Ground,” "The



CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Buss and Cahill do their own thing. “We know that they can handle themselves,” Halcomb said. “They don’t need us cussing and screaming.” When Buss got tangled up with a Nebraska player Sunday and stayed down, the guys did not gasp or worry she might be out for the game. Instead, they took bets on what would happen next, and Matt Siegel correctly predicted Buss would miss a minute or two and be right back in the game. They know better than most how tough and physical the Hoosiers are. Sam Scherry, who couldn’t make it to senior day but is a threeyear black squad veteran and senior like those recognized Sunday, isn’t surprised when he comes home bruised. Farmwald remembers Buss knocking the wind out of him the first practice he went to because he half-heartedly tried for a rebound.



IU sophomore Sneha Dave climbed Mount Kilimanjaro during winter break. Despite having ulcerative colitis, Dave still made the 19,341-foot trek up the mountain.

“My family has always really liked hiking," Dave said. "I was also born in West Virginia near the Appalachian Mountains, so maybe it’s just always been in my blood.” Dave said although it’s difficult to train for differences in altitude, it’s easy to

prepare for repetitive body movements. Climbing large amounts of stairs is essential. “I appreciate that mountains require you push yourself mentally and physically,” Dave said. “I like that it feels good to be away from everyday hustle and bustle every

once in a while,” Dave said. In 2020, Dave plans on climbing Mount Elbrus — the third highest of the seven summits — with plans to eventually conquer them all. “You have to 100 percent commit to something," Dave said. "If you’re not all in, you won’t be able to do it.”

“Oh my gosh,” Farmwald thought. “This is how it’s going to be.” He’s not just a body, though. Neither are his black squad teammates. They develop friendships, find time to have side conversations during practice and hang out with the team outside the gym. Buss is not just the program’s all-time leading scorer to Farmwald. Friends, family and others have had mixed reactions when they find out about the practice squad. Some are curious and intrigued by the opportunity to play inside Assembly Hall. Others are confused that guys are playing against a Division I women’s basketball team. A few are rude. “That’s so stupid, why would you waste your time doing that for free?” one person asked Scherry. Farmwald does not think people know enough about the concept of a male practice team. With a significant group of seniors graduating and spots to fill, the program

has to change that. “We’re going to have to go out and rebuild,” Williams said. “We’re definitely going to have to do better about getting it out there and being transparent about what the black squad really is, what we’re asking of these guys.”

Royster holds her ground as Austin Halcomb, this afternoon playing as if he’s Nebraska’s 6-foot-5 freshman center, tries to post up. Royster bodies him a couple feet away from basket as Halcomb catches a pass, turns and shoots. The shot bounces off the rim, and Royster, who had been struggling to keep Halcomb from establishing position, grabs the rebound. Halcomb pats her on the back. “Black team, when you run Rolls-Royce, run it,” assistant coach Glenn Box says. “Screen, we want to work on the action. Be tough on them.” During practices, Williams wants to challenge Royster and the rest of the team so when games tip off Williams doesn’t lack any confidence in their preparation. At that point she’ll be firmly on the Hoosiers’ side, but right now she’s the guys’ coach, and everyone on Branch McCracken Court is a competitor. She's cheering for them.

Eisenberg said the event is hard to describe on paper. “It’s the kind of thing that on paper seems undefinable,” Eisenberg said. “It’s somewhere I would say between cabaret revue, performance art and call to action.” He said the show addresses themes of violence in an indirect way and is about communities working together. “The performance is not didactic, heavy-handed or politically explicit,” Eisenberg said. “It’s a really fun, uplifting performance.” Anna Strout said she wants to celebrate the work of her mother by building a safer, more caring world. “It moves between joyous celebration, meditation and call to action,” Anna Strout said.

Seven more artists with new music out this year to have on your radar

THE 1975

Indie darling digest

The 1975’s third album, “Music for Cars,” is due for release later this year. Its title is a reference to the band’s 2013 EP of the same name. Self-referentiality is nothing new for the group. Its sophomore release opens with a reworking of the first track of its debut. Word for word.

VAMPIRE WEEKEND Listening to Vampire Weekend can sometimes feel like a geography lesson. The band regularly namedrops specific cities, streets, mountain ranges, religious landmarks — you name it — throughout its trilogy of albums.

Between its 4 EPs and two albums, the band regularly makes callbacks to earlier tracks. For careful listeners, these easter eggs emerge as motifs that develop the lyrical world of the 1975. Explore two of them below.

With a fourth album on the way, take a look at one of the places the band’s lyrics have visited most to prepare for where they may travel next.

1 2 3 Lost my head This phrase can be traced back to the opening track on the band’s first release, 2012’s “Facedown” EP. Mental instability is explored throughout the 1975’s discography and comes to a head on “The Ballad of Me and My Brain,” where singer Matty Healy searches for his mind, thinking he may have left it in a bar or train or Sainsbury’s. “Where would I be if I was my brain?” he frantically asks himself. “Then he said I lost my head Can you see it?”

"Facedown" “Facedown EP”

“And he said I've lost my head Can you see it? Can you see it?” "Lostmyhead" “I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it”

“And I toss and I turn in my bed It's just like I lost my head” "If I Believe You" “I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it”

“And what a shame, you've lost a brain that you never had” "The Ballad of Me and My Brain" “I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it”

hree indie powerhouses — The 1975, Vampire Weekend and Arctic Monkeys — are expected to release music this year. At well-established points in their careers, these bands offer listeners a lot of material to unpack. To get a taste of what these bands have done in the past and what might be in store for the near future, here’s a guide.


For an extended version of this guide, a look at the fan culture surrounding these bands, a timeline of the evolution of digital music, a playlist featuring the hits and more, see

While it only appears on three tracks, this phrase still manages to stand out as a lyrical motif. Its meaning is open to interpretation — is it a whisper? An inhale? An exhale? Whichever the listener decides, it’s a delicate moment between some of the band’s more destructive imagery. “I'm so fixated on the girl with the soft sound” "Settle Down" “The 1975”

“A soft sound to the way that she wears her hair down” "Settle Down" “The 1975”

“Go down, soft sound, midnight” "The 1975" “The 1975”

“Go down, soft sound, midnight” "The 1975" “I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it”


Having met at Columbia University, the band regularly references sites around Manhattan. Between tourist destinations such as the Museum of Modern Art and local eateries such as Jerusalem Restaurant, much of Vampire Weekend’s lyrical world exists within the borough. 1. Washington Heights “I saw Johanna down in the subway, she took an apartment in Washington Heights” “A-Punk” “Vampire Weekend”

ARCTIC MONKEYS If pictures can tell stories, colors are a way in which we can write them. The subtle, moody and sometimes surprising Arctic Monkeys color palettes mix together to create album artwork that immediately reminds us of the songs that make them up. Each color has a tale to tell, and the Arctic Monkeys use them to smartly portray the themes present in its music. Every album features a significant change in style and lyricism which is well-received by fans and critics alike, an uncommon feat in the music world. Here are some prominent color swatches picked from albums in the Arctic Monkeys’ discography, matched with individual songs and broken down to paint an overall picture.

The third LP cements the band’s position as one of indie rock’s frontrunners. It doesn’t have the infectious choruses of the first two albums, but it still sticks with the listener with a loose, surf-rock mood. The cool sepia-toned album artwork gives you the washed out feeling the band was going after. The purples and blues are muted, reminding you of the psychedelic rock the Arctic Monkeys increasingly borrow from in their creative process. This LP might not be as acid-tongued as the band’s previous works, but it has that cutting feeling you can’t shake off when you listen to it. And just like a fuzzy, subtle photo from the past, it’ll end up being a lot more significant than it seems.

2. Hudson River “Johanna drove slowly into the city, the Hudson River all filled with snow” “A-Punk” “Vampire Weekend”

3. Riverside “Now River’s Rise told Riverside to change their names again” “Hudson” “Modern Vampires of the City”


Soft sound

4. Jerusalem Restaurant “Sing next year in Jerusalem — you know, the one at 103rd and Broadway?”

5. Manhattan “A thousand little Julia’s that come together in the middle of Manhattan” “White Sky” “Contra”


Crying Lightning HMBG03

COLOUR Pretty Visitors HMBG04

6. Central Park “Sit on the park wall, ask all the right questions — ‘Why are the horses racing taxis in the winter?’” “White Sky” “Contra”

“Favourite Worst Nightmare” Alex Turner and company pick up the pace with “Favourite Worst Nightmare,” a tougher, heavier sophomore effort that doesn’t skimp on the guitars. The emotions are more poignant as the songwriting takes a slightly morose but heartfelt tone. You can see this through the color choices on the album cover. There are hints of fluorescence, poking through a desolate world where people warn you to be careful before venturing out. Even the smallest mumble transforms into an echo among the cutting drums and the sense of impending danger in the lyrics. Turner is still singing to you about the details — fishnets, T-shirt and tie combinations, balaclavas — but it’s with a little more urgency this time.

7. Museum of Modern Art “Around the corner the house that modern art built, a house for modern art to keep it out the closets”


Old Yellow Bricks FWN01

COLOUR Brianstorm FWN02

“White Sky” “Contra”

8. Sutton Place “Hudson died in Hudson Bay, but I was born on Sutton Place” “Hudson” “Modern Vampires of the City”

Cicada Cinema to screen a movie By Chris Forrester @_ChrisForrester

Bloomington film collective Cicada Cinema is partnering with local vegan restaurant The Owlery for its monthly film screening event, a showing of the 2004 documentary “I Like Killing Flies,” at 7 p.m. Feb. 25. Tickets cost $15 and cover a fixed-menu dinner that is anticipated to be vegan, as well as attendance to the film. Two of Cicada Cinema’s founders, Josh Brewer and Nile Arena, said they wanted this month’s film event to feature dinner and a movie. “We knew we wanted to do something with the Owlery,” Arena said. As a pop-up cinema collective, Cicada Cinema has no fixed space to call its own. For 2018, its organizers have paired up with a new local business or venue each month to offer potential viewers a unique space and to support local businesses. The film follows restaurant owner Kenny Shopsin as he tries to sort out the relocation of his famous Greenwich Village eatery after over 30 years in the same location.

Brewer said the film’s appeal comes from Shopsin’s personality and quips. “The movie is littered with amazing one-liners, and his views on philosophy and the ways of living are crazy awesome,” he said. “Crazy Wisdom,” Arena called it. Arena said they wanted to pick a film that would pair nicely with their dinner and a movie idea. “We wanted something that would kind of be watchable while you’re having food, and while there are all these distractions,” he said. “We felt like a documentary would go well with that.” He described the concoctions featured in the film as wild and zany. “It’s almost like if Jackson Pollock were making food,” Brewer said. The film was also championed by two of the Owlery’s owners, Brewer said. To compliment the wild and wacky food depicted onscreen, Brewer said they wanted to feature a special menu for the event. Arena and Brewer were tight-lipped about the specifics of the menu, except for one potential item: a new vegan


A theater seat is displayed outside The Owlery, a vegan restaurant in Bloomington. A pop-up cinema collective called Cicada Cinema will be showing the documentary “I Like Killing Flies” at 7 p.m. Feb. 25.

food trend called the Impossible Burger. Arena said Impossible Burgers mimic real beef burgers with meat substitutes that better capture the texture and flavor of real meat than most alternatives do. “I just really like the idea

of serving these ‘Impossible Burgers,’” Brewer added. Brewer said Cicada wanted to put together the event to offer the community a nice bit of reprieve in the midst of late winter. “It just seems like a crazy time politically, but also just

the time of year,” he said. “February kinda sucks, and it’s just nice to get a warm meal and a good movie this time of year.” Arena said he felt the same way. “My thought is, football season is over and the Oscars haven’t happened yet,”

he said. “We’ll make sure you don’t leave unhappy.” Both agreed they wanted the event to be more about the experience than anything else. “Just come out for good food and good times,” Brewer said.

Comedian Vir Das will perform stand-up comedy Thursday at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater. The performance is part of the IU Global Arts & Humanities India Remixed festival, which celebrates contemporary and global Indian art.

Vir Das coming to Bloomington By Maura Johnson @Maujo997

Comedians Vir Das and Asif Ali will perform standup comedy Thursday in the Buskirk-Chumley Theater. The performance is part of the IU Global Arts & Humanities India Remixed festival, which celebrates contemporary and global Indian art. Both comedians focus on comparing cultures in their comedy routines and finding humor in American and Indian cultures, said Joe Hiland, Communications Specialist for the Arts & Humanities Council. Vir Das released a Netflix special in 2017 called “Abroad Understanding,” which addresses both American and Indian audiences. Hiland said he hopes jokes about both cultures will be a part of the performance. Indian audience members might understand jokes that Americans do not, which may lead to discussion, he said. “And that might spark conversations that move beyond comedy to discussions about real cultural differences,” Hiland said. India Remixed is bringing in comedians following

comedian Joe Wong’s performance in last year’s China Remixed festival. Ed Comentale, director of the Arts & Humanities Council, said the council wanted to bring in artists and performers who are aware of issues in the world and in the media. Moving past stereotypes would allow for more creative thinking about India and its impact on the world, he said. Comentale said in this country, we tend to have an idea as to what cultures can do stand-up comedy. “It’s really important to show IU, and IU students, that art forms that we typically think of as American or Western have roots and practices in other parts of the world,” he said. Comentale said when we think of India, we tend to think of the dance, costume and food, but it’s important to show the rich traditions and other art and cultural forms India has, like standup comedy. This is the second year the Arts & Humanities Council is presenting India Remixed. This year, the India theme reflects the international student population. There is a large population of Indian students on campus,

Comentale said. The council give students opportunities to experience the arts and humanities outside of the classroom, Hiland said. Students who may not have a career in the arts can still experience the arts through these events, he said. Other events include a lecture from British-Indian artist Bharti Kher and an appearance by filmmaker Mira Nair. Hiland said students will be graduating into a globalized world. He said that the more students are exposed to different cultures, the easier it will be to interact with people from different backgrounds. “We hope that some of the India Remixed events create opportunities for some of our Indian and other international students to interact with domestic students in ways that maybe they wouldn’t normally in the classroom,” he said. The comedy show is free but ticketed and is currently sold out. However, there will be a line for those without tickets to take unclaimed seats. For more information about the show, visit the Buskirk-Chumley Theater website. For more information about the India Remixed festival, go to the IU Arts & Humanities website.

The thing about legendary people is that they never really die. There are different types of death — the actual death, when people attend the funeral and accept the death — and when people stop talking about the deceased person. I read that somewhere. I can’t remember where. The point is, legends don’t die. Not fully. Kurt Cobain was 20 when he started the wildly famous ‘90s grunge band Nirvana, and he was 27 when he committed suicide. He was born on Feb. 20, 1967, and died April 5, 1994. Cobain’s life was troubled not only at the end, but throughout. His parents divorced when he was 9, and he began using drugs in his teens. In 1982, Cobain left his home with his father and began moving from relative to relative, before settling down to live with his mom, according to Biography. com. Around 1985, Cobain started his first band, Fecal Matter. The band never played live gigs, except for one show speculated to have happened in December 1985, but it did record a few songs in Cobain’s aunt’s house, according to Then, in December 1987, Cobain settled on the name for his band, Nirvana. Its first single, “Love Buzz,” is not its best work, but it’s far from the worst song I’ve ever heard. The ‘90s brought fame to Nirvana, and it also brought love to Cobain, in

two ways. He met his wife, Courtney Love, in 1990. They married in 1992 and had a daughter the same year. They were married for just two years before Cobain’s death. Cobain found fame and success with Nirvana, but he did not get the same luxury in his personal life. According to Biography. com, in the early ‘90s he began using heroin as a relief to some of his chronic stomach problems and as an escape from the turmoil of his personal life. Before April 1994, Cobain had previously attempted to end his own life. In March of that same year, he attempted suicide by overdose in his hotel room in Rome. Love found him and got him help, but it was only a temporary bandage, which would soon peel off and leave an unhealed wound. After they returned from Italy, Cobain gave Love another scare by locking himself in a closet with guns and medication. He stated he wasn’t actually planning to kill himself at the time, but Love promptly called the police and they managed to take the guns and the medications from Cobain. According to Rolling Stone, Cobain checked himself in to rehabilitation, but not before coaxing his friend into getting him a gun to protect against the trespassers he said were on his property. He put the gun in his home and went to the clinic in Los Angeles. He stayed there for two days before stepping out for a smoke and jumping over a brick wall that was more than six feet high.

Cobain was found April 8, 1994, three days after his death, and when he was found, he was unrecognizable. He had thrown his wallet on the ground next to his body, open to his Washington license. A 20-gauge shotgun was sitting on his chest. The story of Kurt Cobain is a tragic one, and it shook the public. The Seattle Crisis Clinic received roughly 300 calls that day. A fan in Turkey ended her life with a shot to the head, and another fan returned home from Cobain’s vigil and ended his life the same way as Cobain, according to Rolling Stone. Cobain would have been 51 on Tuesday, but his life ended at age 27. Cobain gave the world Nirvana in December 1987 and sadness on April 8, 1994. Amazingly enough, his influence has continued into 2018. While the end to Cobain’s life was tragic, he and Nirvana managed to give some inspiration to bands today. They made the doit-yourself sound popular, which can be heard in bands like The White Stripes. The grunge fashion started around the same time that Cobain met Love, and the famous x-for-eyes yellow smiley face on a black shirt is still worn today by those who don’t know Nirvana all that well. If you or someone you know is struggling or having thoughts of suicide, call the number for The National Suicide Hotline, 1-800-273-8255. The hotline is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Editors Joshua Hoffer and Neeta Patwari



The United States needs more effective gun laws Seventeen people were shot and killed Feb. 14 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, raising the overall death toll in school shootings to 138 in the mere five years since the 2012 Sandy Hook shooting. The Editorial Board would like to echo the sentiments expressed by students from Parkland and demand policy change beyond the thoughts and prayers of politicians that, at this point, are all but worthless. The rhetoric surrounding the Parkland shooting suggests that Nikolas Cruz’s history, particularly his mental health, are concerning to the public. While we would like to stress that mental illnesses are not statistically dangerous and it is

not the responsibility of victims to prevent mass shootings, we also acknowledge recognizing warning signs can save lives. Neighbors and classmates recall Cruz’s cruelty to animals, his fascination with guns, and instances in which he would explicitly introduce himself as a “school shooter.” Law enforcement responded to 39 calls at Cruz’s home over a seven-year period. However, police reports have not been made available, thus making it impossible to determine Cruz’s involvement. Despite his background, Cruz was able to legally purchase the AR-15 he used in the shooting because Florida gun laws require a judge to deem individuals “mentally defective” in order to

bar them from purchasing firearms. Florida law defines mentally defective as a person who has “marked subnormal intelligence, or mental illness, incompetency, condition or disease” which makes them a danger to others or themselves. Because Cruz had no such label and had visited a therapist five days before the shooting, the narrative of his mental health has focused on missed opportunities for intervention. This emphasis on intervention would be more appropriate if Florida were one of the five states with “red flag laws” that allow concerned family members, guardians or law enforcement to ask judges to temporarily strip gun rights from people who show warning signs of violence.

The Editorial Board fully endorses these laws and sees them as an effective method of empowering communities to take preventative measures while also avoiding the demonization of mental illnesses. In addition to implementing red flag laws, the current infrastructure that manages this information needs to be improved. When a person’s criminal behavior or, in rare cases, mental health issues make it likely for them to become violent, the only way for this verdict to affect their gun ownership is for their status to be submitted to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System. Many states do not report the names of people who have been labeled dangerous, however. This limits

the effectiveness of background checks. The potential benefits of background checks are further limited by the fact background checks are not required for private gun sales. We need universal background checks in order to close loopholes in federal law that allow gun sales by private owners, which often occur online or at gun shows, to forego background checks. Sen. John Cornyn, R-Tex, and Sen. Chris Murphy, DConn., have been developing a bill that would create new incentives for states and federal agencies to upload appropriate information to NICS in order to address the harmful gaps in data. When properly implemented, background checks are very effective. Since their

inception in 1994, almost 3 million people were denied a firearm transfer or permit. The Editorial Board hopes Congress will not only prioritize Cornyn and Murphy’s bill but also expand it to require universal checks. That said, one bill would certainly not be enough. We implore state legislatures to pass red flag laws in order to ensure change comes at a federal and local level. Anything less would be a continued insult to those who have lost their lives while lawmakers remain maddeningly inactive. As Marjory Stoneman Douglas student Emma Gonzalez said at a rally in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on Saturday, “If you actively do nothing, people continually end up dead, so it’s time to start doing something.”



Stress management is essential for all of us

US refusal to contribute aid to reconstruct Iraq is shameful

We are seven weeks into the spring semester and midterms are coming up soon, which means the full brunt of academic stress is now upon us. If you get more than six hours of sleep on weeknights, I bow down to you. This is normally the time I notice myself and many of my friends starting to bend under the weight of our numerous obligations. However, I want to see if I can manage my stress a bit better this semester, and there are plenty of reasons why you might want to as well. Beyond its obvious effects, such as irritability and fatigue, stress can also cause chest pain, headaches and disruptions in appetite, such as over- or undereating.

Some of these symptoms probably seem minor, especially if you tell yourself that you’re making a worthy sacrifice to achieve your goals. The longer you are stressed, however, the more dangerous your stress becomes. Chronic stress involves prolonged exposure to the stress hormones adrenaline and cortisol. This can increase your risk for hypertension, heart attacks and strokes. In terms of mental health, stress can exaggerate any issues you may already be experiencing or lead you to develop new symptoms such as depression and anxiety. Preoccupation with your stress may also cause you to isolate yourself in order to get everything done. This social withdrawal can worsen other symptoms. To avoid these consequences, it is important to make feasible plans for

managing our responsibilities so that you can actually enjoy your time at this university. Researchers from the University of California Berkeley’s Greater Good Science Center suggest keeping a journal of three good things that happen to you every day. Positive reflection counteracts hedonic adaptation, which is the process by which we become accustomed to positive stimuli and stop appreciating the positive stimuli as we did when they were new. The simple act of remembering to notice what makes us happy can increase our happiness and reduce stress. Of course there are also the more familiar methods of regular exercise, healthy eating, and reaching out to your friends and family for support. As little as 20 minutes spent taking a walk or calling a friend can make a big differ-

ence. Although I hope some of these strategies will appeal to you, I understand the impulse to ignore the negative effects of stress that you’ve been warned about and continue on with your work. After all, when you have group projects, essays, exams, extracurriculars and hopefully some semblance of a social life to balance, taking a break to clear your head and enjoy yourself might seem like a waste of time and productivity. You are not wasting your time, though – you’re managing it. Reducing stress can stabilize your moods, minimize your risk of illness and improve the quality of your thoughts and relationships. It’s great to be busy doing things you are passionate about, but you need to make sure that you are happy and healthy while you’re doing them.


No real dialogue, just an armored vehicle “A man and his megaphone” did not silence Mayor John Hamilton’s state of the city address. About 70 supporters from Black Lives Matter did. Caroline Anders’ article doesn’t mention Vauhxx Booker’s network of support until the last few lines of writing. It also fails to emphasize the reasons for the interruption, instead focusing on the disorder of the meeting itself. The Bloomington Police Department has purchased

an armored vehicle and, in doing so, has militarized its police force. I emailed Hamilton to express my disdain at this decision and was invited to attend a “community discussion” to air my concerns. That community discussion was held at noon on a Tuesday two days before the State of the City address. After the decision to purchase the vehicle was already made, Hamilton did not encourage public discourse.

The $225,000 cost of the vehicle could have been used toward alleviating pervasive homelessness and addiction through low-barrier housing programs, treatment centers, extending shelter services and much more — but that money has instead been allocated to increase police power. The utilization of an armored vehicle will undoubtedly target people of color, queer, disabled, poor and otherwise hyper-po-

liced people. Our mayor and city council’s discomfort during a city meeting is a small price to pay compared to the promise of further persecution and intimidation of already underserved groups. Bloomington: please contact Mayor Hamilton at to express your concern about the militarization of BPD. Karlie Thomas is a junior at IU.

Last week, the Iraqi government had a conference in Kuwait to solicit aid, loans and investments from international donors and foreign governments. The goal of the conference was to raise the money needed to rebuild Iraq after the destruction caused during the war against the Islamic State group. The Iraqi government has declared IS group defeated, but many of the areas IS group was expelled from were destroyed. The Iraqi government estimated that it would require $100 billion of international support to rebuild the country, but lowered the goal to $88 billion. It ended up garnering only $30 billion in pledged loans and investments. Most of the largest pledges came from Middle Eastern countries, including Qatar and Kuwait. The largest pledge was by Turkey, which offered Iraq $5 billion in credit. The United States did not pledge any direct aid, only offering $3 billion in credit. Some of Iraq’s cities have been devastated by the massive amounts of bombing that the U.S.-led coalition and Iraqi security forces used to defeat IS group. The worst example of this destruction is the city of Mosul, which IS group left

in July 2017. The United Nations has estimated 40,000 homes in Mosul need to be rebuilt or restored. At least 9,000 civilians died in the battle. There is a total of 2.6 million internally displaced persons in Iraq. The nation is home to 8.7 million people whom the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs deems to be in need of humanitarian assistance. No country’s lack of contribution is more shameful than that of the U.S. The U.S. is the country most responsible for Iraq’s current situation. IS group is a phenomenon that essentially grew out of al-Qaeda in Iraq. Al-Qaeda had virtually no presence in Iraq before the U.S.’s aggressive invasion of the country in 2003. We could go back further. After supporting and arming Saddam Hussein’s regime against Iran in the 1980s, the Bush administration turned on Hussein when he invaded Kuwait . The U.S. beat Iraq in the first Gulf War. Then, the U.S. led the implementation of sanctions the U.N. said killed thousands of Iraqi children. The 2003 invasion — the worst international crime of the century so far — led to more deaths. After all this, for the U.S. to refuse to give Iraq any aid, offering only loans to a government already deeply in debt, is outrageous.

Baseball continues non-conference play in Florida By Cameron Drummond @cdrummond97

After closing its first tournament of the season with three straight wins, the Hoosiers will continue nonconference play this weekend in Florida. IU will play Rutgers, Boston College and Chicago State as part of the Snowbird Baseball Classic in Port Charlotte, Florida, to complete nonconference tournament play. The Hoosiers went 3-1 at last weekend’s Brittain Resorts Baseball at the Beach tournament in South Carolina. IU dropped its opening game against Oklahoma, but followed with victories against Kansas State, South Alabama and Coastal Carolina. Starting pitching was a trouble spot for IU in three of the four games. Junior Jonathan Stiever, sophomore Andrew Saalfrank and junior Tim Herrin all pitched five innings or fewer with an ERA of at least 9.00. Only junior pitcher Pauly Milto made it to the sixth inning for IU in a starting role, which came in last Saturday’s 5-0 win against Kansas State. However, the Hoosier bullpen picked up the slack for Coach Chris Lemonis. IU bullpen pitchers combined for 18 innings pitched and just three runs allowed. Only one pitcher, sophomore Cal Krueger, made multiple appearances during the weekend. Krueger earned wins against South Alabama and Coastal Carolina. The South Alabama win came courtesy of timely hitting from new junior leadoff hitter Logan Kaletha. Kaletha’s walk-off grand slam gave IU an 8-4 win,

and provided an exclamation point to a strong debut weekend from the Michigan City, Indiana, native. Kaletha went the junior college route out of high school, attending John A. Logan College in Carterville, Illinois, for three years before enrolling at IU. He started all four games for the Hoosiers during opening weekend and leads the team with five runs scored. “It’s something I’ve been working for since I went JuCo,” Kaletha said in a Twitter video posted by IU Athletics after the South Alabama game. “To get to this level and play with these guys, it’s awesome.” Kaletha’s strong start to the season helped make up for disappointing showings at the plate by sophomore outfielder Matt Gorski and junior utility player Matt Lloyd. Gorski collected just two hits in 11 at-bats, although he made no mistakes fielding the ball in left field, a position he switched back to during the offseason. Lloyd is expected to contribute significantly to the IU offense, but went 1-16 during IU’s first four games. Lloyd’s woes contributed to IU hitting at just a .236 average as a team while in South Carolina, but the Hoosiers still scored more than five runs per game on average. “You don’t really see us get down on ourselves,” Kaletha said. “Bad at-bat, we always got another one.” Rutgers will be IU’s first opponent Friday afternoon, although the game will not count in the Big Ten Conference standings. The Scarlet Knights went 1-2 last weekend during a three-game set at then-No. 9 Miami. Boston College went 2-1

at Santa Clara to begin its 2018 season and will play another Big Ten school, Minnesota, before facing IU on Saturday.

Chicago State will also enter the Snowbird Baseball Classic at 2-1 following a series victory against Long Island University-Brooklyn.

The Cougars and Hoosiers will finish tournament play against one another on Sunday morning. Stiever and Milto will

likely remain the Friday and Saturday starters for IU, although Lemonis has not confirmed starters beyond those two players.


Hoosiers win at 'The Barn' for the first time in seven years By Dylan Wallace | @Dwall_1

It’s been one month since the IU women’s basketball team has lost a game. Dating back to Jan. 20 in East Lansing, Michigan, when the Hoosiers took down the Spartans 69-65, IU has rallied off eight consecutive victories. Five of those came at home against Wisconsin, Rutgers, Northwestern, Illinois and Nebraska. The road wins were at Purdue and most recently at Minnesota on Tuesday night. The Gophers are the third highest scoring team in the NCAA this season led by senior guard Carlie Wagner. Wagner averages 17.6 points per game and torched

IU with 34 points in this game. However, the Hoosiers had a counter. For the second straight game, senior guard Tyra Buss scored 30 plus points, totaling 36 tonight. “Tyra came up big in the fourth,” IU Coach Teri Moren said. “I thought her threes were timely.” The Hoosiers entered the fourth quarter down two until those timely threes by Buss started raining down. One minute into the quarter, it was tied at 56 — Buss three. With five minutes to go, the Hoosiers were up just one, 62-61 — two consecutive Buss threes. A minute and half remaining in the game and IU was hanging on to a tight five-point lead — another Buss three. That last three pushed the

lead to eight and sealed Minnesota’s fate. The Hoosiers knocked down their free throws in the final seconds to get the 82-70 victory. It was IU’s first win at the Barn since 2011. Along with her 36 points, Buss also had seven assists and five rebounds. She is now one assist away from breaking the all-time assists record at IU. Freshman guard Bendu Yeaney also had a productive night for the Hoosiers. She finished with 11 points and 10 rebounds. “It was such a quiet double-double,” Moren said. “The one rebound she came up with late in the fourth was probably the biggest rebound of the game. We obviously need solid play from

our freshmen, and her and JP continue to improve.” JP, freshman guard Jaelynn Penn, had eight points and five rebounds, and provided solid defense for the Hoosiers throughout the night. Senior forward Amanda Cahill and junior forward Kym Royster each put up 10 points. Moren thought defensively her team got off to a sluggish start as they trailed 7-2 out the gates. But, she said they cleaned things up especially in the second half. In the second half, IU held Minnesota to just 28.2-percent shooting and outscored the Gophers 28-14 in the final frame. These eight consecutive wins have tied an IU record


Women’s basketball Coach Teri Moren shouts after a referee calls a foul on IU. The Hoosiers faced the Nebraska Cornhuskers on Saturday, Feb. 17, and won 83-75. The Hoosiers followed that up with a road win at Minnesota Tuesday night, 82-70.

for women’s basketball. “It was a great road win for our group,” Moren said. “I think people forget the conference schedule was

really difficult. We just had to stay patient and I think that you’ve seen the early lessons we learned from Big Ten play.”

IU prepares for Cornell and Princeton this weekend By Lauralys Shallow @ShallowLauralys

IU women's tennis heads to the east coast to face Cornell and No. 25 Princeton, and it will be familiar territory for junior Madison Appel and sophomore Caitlin Bernard. Both players are from the northeast. Appel is a Locust Valley, New York, native, and Bernard calls Belchertown, Massachusetts, home. IU Coach Ramiro Azcui said part of the reason he scheduled these matches specifically was because he wanted to bring two of his players close to their families. “I want our program to be like a family,” Azcui said. “I always encourage parents to come and be part of our family. For us to be able to play near their home environment is neat for our team. It is special and a way to bring the game to the parents who are far away from their daughters.” Another reason Azcui

scheduled Cornell and Princeton is for the high level of competition with two solid Ivy League programs. Cornell and Princeton agreed to host IU at their respective facilities this year, and next season IU will host the two teams in Bloomington. “Ivy’s are always so strong because of their ability to recruit,” Azcui said. “Everybody wants to go to an Ivy, and they consistently get great players.” IU squares off with Cornell on Friday in Ithaca, New York. Then, the Hoosiers will travel to New Jersey where they will face the Princeton Tigers on Sunday. Cornell, 5-4, is on a twogame win streak. Its most recent win is over a Big Ten team in Rutgers 5-2. Princeton, 7-1, also takes on Rutgers the game before playing IU. The Tigers picked up a win over No. 12 Auburn earlier this month. Princeton and IU have both played Xavier this

season. IU defeated Xavier 6-1, and Princeton won 7-0. The Tigers are at home and better on paper, but Azcui said his team likes being the underdog. “We love having that label under our belt,” Azcui said. “We are starting to realize that we can compete with anybody, and we have an opportunity to defeat a good Princeton team.” IU’s doubles have been a consistent strength, winning 10 of 11 doubles points, including against Tennessee and Notre Dame. Cincinnati is the only team that has beaten IU in doubles. Bernard and freshman Jelly Bozovic are undefeated in doubles, holding a 7-0 record. The tandem of Bernard and Bozovic communicate well and their strengths complement each other. Bozovic plays the net aggressively and Bernard stays back, setting up Bozovic with a good shot at the net. “We have extraordinary chemistry on the court,” Bo-

zovic said. “We know exactly what the other is going to do. We are like twins on the court.” Azcui said opponents start to pick up on their strategy of a strong net presence, but Bernard and Bozovic understand and execute their roles at such a high level that the

opponents have a hard time stopping them. While Bozovic is undefeated in doubles, she has dropped her last two singles matches to Tennessee and Notre Dame. Both of her losses have been close, and she pushed her match against Notre

Dame to the third set. Bozovic said that she is focused on finishing the matches and the things she can control. “I need to keep playing my game,” Bozovic said. “If I focus on other things, I start getting nervous and my level of play goes down.”


IU looks to continue progressing with middle of road trip By Phillip Steinmetz @PhillipHoosier

Sophomore outfielder Gabbi Jenkins has emerged as the most reliable hitter in the IU softball lineup through the first nine games. She swapped places with senior outfielder Rebecca Blitz as the leadoff batter due to her .414 batting average and 12 hits in the opening weeks of play. The Hoosiers will rely on Jenkins to provide a strong start when they travel to Birmingham, Alabama, this weekend to take on Lipscomb and Samford as part of the Samford Tournament. In her first game as the leadoff batter, she went 3-4 to

propel IU over Boston College in their lone win of the ACC/ Big Ten Challenge. “We’ve got two leadoffs in Blitz and Gabbi,” IU Coach Shonda Stanton said. “I like our personal a little bit more when we flip it because Blitz is a better bunter.” IU will open it’s doubleheader with two games against Lipscomb on Friday and Saturday. Jenkins will need to provide similar results if IU hopes to be competitive in the series. The Bison are 5-2 but have lost their last two games. Despite the recent struggles, Lipscomb checks each box when looking for a solid all-around team. The Bison have four players batting over .300 and their

pitchers have a combined 1.48 ERA. In their first game of the season, they took down Georgia Tech 1-0. IU lost to the Yellow Jackets twice last weekend by a combined score of 8-2. “I’m excited to play Lipscomb especially because they have some good wins under their belt,” Jenkins said. “I think that’d be a great win for us to pick up.” IU will play its second games of those days against Samford. The Bulldogs are coming in with a similar record to the Hoosiers, at 1-9. Despite the poor start to the season, Samford has played a difficult schedule thus far with three losses coming to ranked opponents. They were

outscored 27-3 in those three games. The Bulldogs don’t have a single player batting over .300, but junior infielder Madison Couch is close with a .296. Samford’s main weakness is its pitching rotation. IU struggles to find hits at times, but Samford’s pitchers have a combined 7.68 ERA and have given up 15 home runs. It’d be the perfect opportunity for the Hoosiers to find some rhythm within their batting order. “I’m not so much worried with who we’re playing this weekend as much as how we’re going to show up,” Stanton said. IU showed growth last weekend against Boston College and Georgia Tech after

making a few adjustments. The Hoosiers will have to rely on the top of their batting order and solid pitching to pick up key victories this weekend in the middle of the road trip.

“We’ve got to go out there with a reckless abandon and sell out,” Stanton said. “That’s the biggest thing I want to see is our approach and mentality when we take the field.”

Artists releasing music in 2018 By Katie Chrisco

his second solo album, “Lazaretto,” to critical acclaim. His new album “Boarding House Reach” will be released March 23.White has released two songs from the album, “Connected by Love” and “Respect Commander.” According to a Rolling Stone article, the album is his most adventurous one yet. "The entire record, to me, is incredibly modern,” White said in the article. “I wanted to take punk, hip-hop and rock 'n' roll, and funnel it all into a 2018 time capsule." | @KatieChrisco

Sky Ferreira The singer-songwriter has not released an album since her 2013 debut “My Night, My Time.” According to a Pitchfork article, Ferreira announced she would be releasing a heavily visual EP this year. On Jan. 10 she posted the first official photo from her upcoming release on Instagram. There is no official release date yet, but according to the article Ferreira said she will release music in February or March.

My Bloody Valentine The rock band has been around since the 1980s and recently announced their first show in four years. The group will play Japan’s Sonicmania festival on Friday, Aug. 17, and plans on releasing a new album later this year, though no title or release date has been announced yet.

MGMT Known for the hits “Kids” and “Electric Feel,” MGMT returns with their fourth album “Little Dark Age.” The new album is their first since their 2013 selftitled album, and was released Feb. 9. The first three songs released from the album, “Little Dark Age,” “When You Die,” and “Hand it Over,” gave listeners a taste for the new record. The same synth pop vibes are there, but this time MGMT seems to lean more toward the dark side lyrically. The synth beats and playfully melancholy songs will take fans back to the 1980s.

“The entire record, to me, is incredibly modern. I wanted to take punk, hiphop and rock ‘n’ roll, and funnel it all into a 2018 time capsule.”

Jack White White rose to prominence as the lead singer and guitarist of the rock duo the White Stripes during the early 2000s. In 2014 White released

Jack White in Rolling Stone

Horoscope Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) — Today is a 7 — Make your home more comfortable. Don’t take on new challenges yet. Stay out of someone else’s argument. Nurture your family with comfort food. Aries (March 21-April 19) — Today is a 7 — Do the research. Obligations vie with new tasks for your time. Either stay focused or slow down. A hidden danger could arise. Talk to someone ahead.

Julian Casablancas & The Voidz Casablancas, of The Strokes fame, returns with his band the Voidz for its second record. “Virtue” will be released March 30, as well as two songs, “Leave it in my Dreams,” and “QYURRYUS.” Along with a new album, the band has also changed its name from Julian Casablancas and the Voidz to just the Voidz. Although the Voidz are more experimental than the Strokes, listeners can expect to hear some of Casablancas’ classic rock influence. The Vaccines The English band’s fourth album, “Combat Sports,” follows the 2015 album, “English Graffiti” and will be released March 30. The band shared their new single, “I Can’t Quit,” in early January. According to an NME article, the band’s new album is a return to their roots with songs that mix melancholy and euphoria. Car Seat Headrest While the Indie Rock band released a new album this year, the songs on it aren’t new. Instead, “Twin Fantasy,” is a re-recorded version of Will Toledo’s selfreleased album of the same name. Since the songs are rerecordings, the album adheres to Toledo’s garage rock sound and self-aware lyrics, but also improves upon the originals.

Consider personal priorities before automatically agreeing. Take time for yourself.

Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Today is a 5 — Don’t make important decisions or moves yet. Slow down, and consider hidden implications and consequences. Review plans and options. Savor rituals and peaceful moments. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Today is a 7 — Hang out together with friends, and work out an action plan. Talk, laugh and blow off steam. Get to know someone better.




Jack White and the White Stripes perform part of the band's "Elephant" 2003 fall tour, Sept. 13, 2003, in Mountain View, California.
