2 group houses must isolate

IU starts biweekly COVID testing By Matt Cohen mdc1@iu.edu | @Matt_Cohen_

IU reported a 0.2% positivity rate in last week’s COVID-19 mitigation testing, as well as 56 total positive test results across all forms of testing and 332 individuals instructed to quarantine in Wednesday’s dashboard update. This update includes testing data from the week of Feb. 7, the first week oncampus residents were tested twice per week. IU conducted 36,538 mitigation tests across all campuses last week and 25,462 mitigation tests in Bloomington alone. The four main groups selected for mitigation testing in Bloomington — live-in greek-life students, live-out greek-life students, residence hall students and off-campus students — had 0.2% positivity rates last week. Livein greek-life students had 3,014 total tests conducted, and residence hall students had 15,356 total tests conSEE TESTS, PAGE 6

MEN'S SOCCER

1st game moves to Westfield, Indiana By Doug Wattley dwattley@iu.edu | @DougWattley

Friday’s season opener for IU men’s soccer has been moved away from Bloomington due to inclement weather, according to a Monday release from the program. Instead, the match will take place at Grand Park in Westfield, Indiana. The Hoosiers were supposed to kick off their season against Wisconsin at Bill Armstrong Stadium, but the change was made to avoid anticipated snow and freezing temperatures. It will be the first of 10 regular season matches for IU this season. All of them will be against conference opponents.

Lexie Matthews, 44, is a retired nurse who volunteers to administer COVID-19 vaccines in Bloomington. Nearly 16,000 Monroe County residents had received at least one dose of the vaccine as of Monday.

‘Our best chance’

Meet a nurse racing to vaccinate Bloomington By Matt Cohen mdc1@iu.edu | @Matt_Cohen_

She sets up her station as the sun rises, sectioned off by small partitions from the other five nurses on the Convention Center floor. Everything — gauze, hand sanitizer, wipes, laptop, Band-Aids and all her vials of vaccines for the day — must be in place. She’s dressed in the sweater and jeans she picked out the night before — so she wouldn’t wake her husband at 5 a.m. It’s her comfortable outfit. Now two years after her retirement, she doesn’t own any hospital scrubs. She’s wearing a mask and gloves, and she’ll only spend up to 10 minutes with each patient. But even in that brief interaction, the 44-year-old retired nurse, sees a grateful look on her patients' faces. She sees the worry from a year living in fear begin to fade. Often, she helps her elderly patients into their chairs and takes off their jackets and warm clothing so she can reach their frail arms. She runs through the same list of questions: “Do you have any allergies? Can you confirm your date of birth? What time can we schedule your next appointment?” Most patients look away with the needle in their

arm, but she said none of her patients have complained of any pain. There’s no noise other than the quiet conversation of other nurses asking their patients the same questions, and those chatting in the waiting room for 15 minutes after their shot. Lexie Matthews has met people who cried when they received their COVID-19 vaccination. Many tell her stories of the people they’ve missed, the ones they haven’t seen in nearly a year. Others, Lexie said,

another woman asking. “Yes, I am, and for the most part everybody is,” Lexie said. “Well, you are all going to heaven,” the woman responded. * * * But getting to the end of the pandemic means going through hell first. The national roll out of COVID-19 vaccines has sped up dramatically in the new year, but it has continued to fall short of pro-

are reluctant, saying their children or grandchildren told them to. She vaccinated her first grade teacher. Lexie recognized her name. She also vaccinated a grandmother yet to meet her grandchildren. The grandmother was already eagerly awaiting her second dose the moment she got her first, desperate to meet them in person. “Are you all volunteers here?” Lexie remembers

jections from the Trump administration when the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines were first approved. The Trump administration promised 20 million Americans would be vaccinated by the end of December. According to Reuters, only 2.8 million total doses were given out in December. Reuters reported local health officials across the country did not receive enough federal funding to hire proper staff

sizes to run vaccination clinics at the pace originally hoped for. Now, in mid-February, the United States finally reached over 50 million total vaccines administered, according to the CDC website. The CDC also reports Indiana ranks 16th for total doses administered in the U.S. as of Feb. 14. In Indiana, 816,758 people have received one dose and 336,827 people are fully vaccinated as of Feb. 15, according to the state’s vaccine dashboard. In Indiana, all individuals above the age of 65 are currently able to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Vaccines in Monroe County were first distributed at the IU Health Bloomington Hospital, starting in December. During the week of Jan. 11, the county opened its own additional distribution site, at the Monroe County Convention Center. The Convention Center only gives out the Moderna vaccine. The hospital has both Moderna and Pfizer doses. The Convention Center averages roughly 190 inoculated patients each day it is open, Monroe County Health Administrator Penny Caudill said. She estimates someone is vaccinated every two minutes, on average. Nearly 16,000 SEE NURSE, PAGE 6

The Evans Scholars and Sigma Delta Tau houses were directed to quarantine Monday because of an increased number of COVID-19 cases in the house, according to IU’s Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life website. These are the first two houses directed to quarantine by IU and the Monroe County Health Department during the spring semester, and Evans Scholars’ second quarantine order of the 2020-21 school year. The quarantine period resets with every new positive test in the houses. Some houses in the fall were in quarantine for over a month as a result. Thus it’s unclear exactly how long the Evans Scholars and Sigma Delta Tau quarantine orders will last. It is unclear how many students in the two houses tested positive for the coronavirus as well as the positivity rate in each of the houses. Residents living in communal housing like these primarily moved in during the final week of January. About 100 students were living in all the greek and other communal houses prior to the move-in week. It’s currently unclear how many students are living in the greek houses. During the first month of the fall semester, many greek houses experienced significant COVID-19 outbreaks. At one point in September, 33 greek houses were placed under quarantine orders at the same time. Dr. Aaron Carroll, IU’s director of mitigation testing, said during his Wednesday webinars in the fall he wanted extra mitigation testing for communal houses — testing every live-in resident at least once a week — in order to prevent similar outbreaks in the spring. To this point, there has not been an outbreak similar to that of the fall. This week’s COVID-19 dashboard update will provide information on the first full week of mitigation testing for all of the live-in greek life students.

Letter-writing club combats loneliness By Wei Wang daviwang@iu.edu | @WeiWangDavid23

Newly-founded Campus Cursive at IU aims to connect students through handwritten letters and combat loneliness during the COVID-19 pandemic, club founder and sophomore Aryan Mishra said. The club was approved by IU last month. Its first letterwriting events will start in March, he said. Mishra said the club’s letter-writing activities may include writing anonymous letters of encouragement and dropping them off around campus and writing to hospitals and nursing homes. He said the club will also accept letter referral requests from people who know someone going through a tough time. Mishra’s idea to found a Campus Cursive chapter, a college chapter of the international organization More Love Letters, came from his instructor Rebecca Butorac during his freshman year. He said he felt uplifted when Butorac showed his class MLL

founder Hannah Brencher’s TED talk about handwritten letters to strangers going through difficult times. “Now people don’t write letters, and to get that many handwritten letters from strangers telling you everything’s going to be okay, that’s a meaningful thing,” Mishra said. “I guess it just has a touch of realness to it – like it’s more personal.” Mishra said Campus Cursive at IU is about encouraging those who receive the letters to be kind to others. “The idea is that it would motivate the person that receives the letter to do the same thing for someone else,” he said. “A random person finds that letter and it kind of sets off a chain reaction.” Butorac, who is the faculty adviser for the club, said more than 30 people signed up for the club within its first week, including IU students and Bloomington residents. She said people’s interest in the club is exciting, but also shows their pressing need for social connection and emotional outlets.

“It’s just necessary,” she said. “And it feels urgent, almost.” Butorac said her passion for handwriting letters started with a New Year’s resolution to engage and check in more with her friends. She said easily-accessible social media and email messages disappear in threads and inboxes, so she challenged herself to frequently send handwritten postcards to people she knows. “With social media and all that stuff, we post a lot of good things,” she said. “But we don’t really share, like, ‘Hey, I’m feeling really bad, and I can really use a pickme-up.’” She said writing letters is also an easy way of self-expression. “I think sometimes people are nervous about expressing emotion,” she said. “It seems like it’s a positive for both the person writing it and the person getting it.” IU freshman Lucinda Larnach is a prospective member of Campus Cursive at IU and started leaving handwriting notes for strangers

in high school. She said she has since found many pen pals, and talking with them through letters has helped her value small things in life. “I think it really opens your mind up to a lot of dif-

ferent things,” she said. “And it makes you realize things about your life that you take for granted.” Larnach said she struggled with sadness during high school, and after read-

ing about positive thinking and self-affirmation she decided to share messages of positivity with other people. “This world is kind of brutal sometimes – I’ll make it a better place,” she said.

Sheriff calls for state to vaccinate incarcerated people By Christy Avery averycm@iu.edu | @christym_avery

As Indiana rolls out the COVID-19 vaccine for older populations and essential workers, some local sheriffs and advocates are encouraging the state to also vaccinate people who are incarcerated. Some states, such as New York and Oregon, recently began vaccinating incarcer-

ated people who are older than 65 or have preexisting conditions. Annie Goeller, chief communications officer at the Indiana Department of Corrections said in an email only inmates who fall under the Indiana State Department of Health’s protected categories have been vaccinated. As of Feb. 5, 540 eligible incarcerated people have been vaccinated following

ISDH guidelines, she wrote. However, Indiana has not included incarcerated people as a protected category in distribution plans as a whole, despite giving priority to other congregate settings such as nursing homes in January. Monroe County Corrections Center has not distributed any vaccines, Monroe County Sheriff Brad Swain said. Research from healthy-

people.gov — a website from the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion — shows incarcerated people are especially vulnerable to disease. Swain said he thinks COVID-19 is common in jails and prisons because social distancing is difficult to implement with a large number of people residing in close quarters. “There is a serious flaw in confining people inside rather than encouraging them to be outside, and certainly a detention facility would be a serious breeding ground to spread COVID,” Swain said. The Monroe County Corrections Center doesn’t have many inmates older than 65, Swain said. However, he said many incarcerated people are obese and lack vitamin D, which he said are also risk factors for COVID-19. Still, the correctional center had avoided COVID-19 until a few inmates tested positive about a month ago. The center has had a handful of COVID-19 cases out of about 220 inmates, according to Swain. Swain praised the precautions the jail is taking, such as placing people who are incarcer-

ated in quarantine blocks for 10 days when they’re first booked in and using sanitation processes including ultraviolet light sources to disinfect spaces. Swain said high positivity rates in facilities are the reason he’s encouraging the state to vaccinate inmates. In an informal survey done at the Monroe County Corrections Center, only about 25% of people incarcerated at the jail were willing to receive the vaccine, Swain said. He said he speculates they might be worried about the vaccine’s efficacy or side effects. He said if the vaccine was opened up to people in jails and prisons, he would not mandate it. Instead, the facility would utilize an incentive program by granting incarcerated people who agree to get the vaccine credit on their commissary accounts to buy items they want or bringing food from outside restaurants. Swain said he wants to ensure people who are incarcerated are able to receive a second dose of the vaccine if they are relocated or released back into the community. He said he has reached out to the Indi-

ana Sheriff ’s Association to make plans for when vaccinations become available for those who are incarcerated. Jane Henegar, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana, said people who are incarcerated should be more highly prioritized because they often go into prisons with the same health issues that would make them eligible outside the facilities. “Almost nobody in jail or prison has been given a death sentence, and often by not vaccinating them, keeping them in poor conditions, we fear that’s the sentence,” she said. Henegar said incarcerated people have an infection rate 83% higher than the state’s as a whole. She said the pandemic has highlighted disparities in health care and economic equality around the country, and people who are incarcerated should be treated the same as everyone else. “Treating people who are incarcerated differently because they are incarcerated isn’t consistent with the humanity that’s required of all of us during this unprecedented time,” Henegar said.

11 IU faculty members named distinguished professors By Sophie Suter srsuter@iu.edu | @sophiersuter

IU announced 11 faculty members were named distinguished professors this year on Feb. 10. Distinguished professor is the highest academic title that can be received at the university. These 11 faculty members include six instructors in the College of Arts and Sciences, four in the IU School of Medicine and one in the Luddy School of Informatics, Computing and Engineering. “These honors demonstrate IU’s breadth and depth of excellence in research, teaching, service, philanthropy, athletics, arts, performance and other creative endeavors,” the press release said. The new distinguished professors are Judith Allen, Dr. Liana Apostolova, Dr. Aaron Carroll, Dr. D. Wade Clapp,

David Fisher, Matthew Hahn, Cindy Hmelo-Silver, Christoph Irmscher, Martin Jarrold, Debomoy Lahiri and Malcolm Winkler. Richard Shiffrin, a member of the selection committee for choosing these professors, said the committee carefully reviewed many promising candidates. Individual departments nominate faculty to be considered. After the committee views the nominated candidates, they forward the most promising candidates to IU President Michael McRobbie who chooses who receives the awards. University Honors and Awards grants them to the chosen faculty members. The selection of these professors happens once every year. The review begins around Thanksgiving, and the President makes the final decision during winter break so the Board of Trustees can announce the selections in

February, Fred Cate, chair of the Distinguished Professor Selection Committee, said. Cate said the selection process is rigorous and based on what academic contributions the particular candidate has made. These contributions include research, studies and creative innovations made in their disciplines at the university. “It’s based entirely on research or creative activity,” Cate said. “But it’s not based on teaching or service. Those things are critically important, it’s just not important for this particular recognition.” Winkler, a professor of biology, is one of the newly named distinguished professors and said he is most proud of the effects he has had on his students. He said he has taught both graduate and undergraduate students and has loved seeing them go into different careers in science,

academia, government and business. Winkler also said the development and support of high-tech science facilities at

IU have made it easier for him to have success when teaching students about science. “A big key to success here has been a lot of university

Kirkwood Noodles & Company to reopen March 1 By Wei Wang daviwang@iu.edu | @WeiWangDavid23

Noodles & Company in Bloomington, located in the Von Lee building at 517 E. Kirkwood Ave., will reopen March 1. General Manager Alexander Moore said he is expecting IU students in Bloomington to boost sales in the spring. The location closed its doors April 8, 2020, after a drop from $3,000 to $500 in sales per day after IU closed

its campus last March, Moore said. Noodles & Company will open with its full menu for limited seating dine-in, carryout and delivery, Moore said. Its reopening comes as many restaurants in Bloomington welcome back customers after closing during winter break. Like other restaurants, Moore said he expects IU students who have returned to Bloomington to boost the location’s sales as

spring approaches. He said he’s optimistic because of the location’s popularity before the COVID-19 pandemic. “The amount of deliveries that this location had before coronavirus was staggering,” Moore said. Noodles & Company’s other Bloomington location at Eastland Plaza stayed open throughout the pandemic, although it closed its in-person dining area for months last year due

to state and Bloomington public health regulations, Moore said. After reopening, Noodles & Company’s COVID-19 policies will include spacing out tables for social distancing and regularly sanitizing tables and constantly touched surfaces. Moore said no customers or staff have reported testing positive for COVID-19 at the Eastland Plaza location since the start of the pandemic.

STEFAN’S STANCE ON IT

Blackfishing is wrong. Don’t argue. Tiera Howleit is a senior in political science and African American and African Diaspora Studies

This weekend, a 19-yearold white woman was accused of Blackfishing on some of her Instagram and Twitter posts, sparking controversy within IU’s Black community. The posts show the girl with box braids, a common hairstyle for Black women, and commenters accused her of self-tanning to the point where she looks like a lighter skinned Black woman. IU graduate student Daja Palmer said Blackfishing is when non-Black people take from Black culture and wear it as a costume. “Everybody wants to be Black until it is time to be Black,” Palmer said. The term derives from the racist, historical practice of Black face, which white people have used for centuries to mock Black people and culture. Black face was very popular during the time of Jim Crow and was often used for theater and minstrel shows. What makes Blackfishing wrong is that white people can appropriate Black culture and get away with copying us under the guise of trendiness, while not having to worry about the negative consequences of being Black. “Stuff that we cannot wear on a daily basis, they can wear because it’s considered cool and urban,” Palmer said. While this trend of appropriating Black culture has sparked outrage within the Black community, its impact on Black culture is minimized. IU graduate student Selena Drake said Black culture has long been a form of entertainment for non-Black people. “Black people cannot be Black, but when other ethnicities use our culture in a way to benefit them, Black people receive no recognition from it,” Drake said “As a Black woman, we

cannot do as many things as any other woman or race could,” Palmer said. “Like for instance, our braids are not even considered professional in a work setting but here we are seeing white women get braids and people are like ‘Oh my God, that is so trendy’.” The bigger issue surrounding this specific case of Blackfishing, Drake said, is the girl did not take the time to address the issue and does not seem to be an advocate for Black lives and the issues faced within the community because none of her social media posts reflect her support. Past occurrences of Blackfishing, such as Rachel Dolezal’s story, should have provided enough evidence to prove the damage Blackfishing does to the Black community. Back in 2015, while serving as president of her local NAACP chapter, Dolezal claimed to be biracial. She darkened her skin, wore braids and even legally changed her name to Nkechi Amare Diallo. She has since written a book, but has trouble finding employment. Despite this very public example as to why Blackfishing is wrong, the trend continues. “We look at her [Dolezal] and see she has risen, with her effects of Blackfishing, to places Black people should be in and occupy,” Drake said. “We do not need a white person on the face of this movement.” Palmer said Black people are not cautious enough with letting white people in our spaces, and this is one of the reasons why cases of Blackfishing keep surfacing. “White people have spaces all around us and they make us feel obligated to let them in ours,” Palmer said. “We need to educate ourselves.” While Blackfishing is seen to have a negative impact on Black culture and identity, conversations on its impact need to continue in order for this trend of appropriation to end. thowleit@iu.edu

A Black Lives Matter mural is seen Feb. 14 in People’s Park.

Stop posting, start listening. Stefan Townes is a junior in English and comparative literature.

It seems people have already forgotten the saying was “Abolish the Police” before it was watered down to “Police Reform.” Americans are seeing a tiring and oft-repeated combination of revisionist history and performative activism. Instead of policy change, we get murals, and instead of active help, we get social media campaigns. Black activists have made it clear that they want the police abolished. This sentiment has been around for decades, and was even popularly supported by notable activists such as Angela Davis. This demand has been diminished to a belief that the police departments in many communities receive a disproportionate amount of funding, and that reallocating those funds to those departments would be better for the larger community. While this is true, as police departments across the U.S. get hundreds of millions of dollars worth of federal funding, it reframes the discussion as “who and what should get funding?” instead of “why are police killing so many minorities?” The new motto used in headlines by the New York Times, NPR and CNN is “Defund the Police.” This motto results from

an increased focus in money and funds, and not Black lives. This has further led to yet another slogan, “Police Reform,” further distancing the movement from the original call of “Abolish the Police.” This is, sadly, a very common phenomenon. The demands and calls to action from many Black activists are drowned out and mitigated with easier solutions that few, if any, Black activists asked for. The response to last summer’s protests against police brutality have more to do with performative support than tangible change in our system of policing. Think of events such as “Blackout Tuesday,” where people posted solid black squares on social media in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement, or the numerous murals bearing the movement’s name. It’s support, yes, but it’s not a policy change. This is just the latest in this pattern of clear goals established by Black activists being abstracted and forgotten. The biggest name in the history of the Civil Rights Movement, Martin Luther King Jr., was goaded to commit suicide by his government and lamented the white moderates that let him be jailed in Birmingham, Alabama. Instead of recognizing this injustice for what it was, the government named streets after King and former President Ron-

ald Reagan honored him with a holiday, all while he ravaged Black communities with the War on Drugs. Instead of letting MLK’s thoughts and ideas for a better tomorrow continue to progress, he’s now often boiled down to a single line in a single speech, crying out for judgment based on character, not skin color. That’s the only part of the “I have a dream” speech that can be used by the very people King was fighting against. It’s merely an image of support — a performance for the public — but it doesn’t create change. It’s still an issue today. Nobody asked for a “Black Lives Matter Plaza” in Washington, D.C. It’s nice, sure, but it’d be better if Mayor Muriel Bowser did something about the disproportionate amount of Black people in D.C. that get arrested. It happens at IU, too. Last year, IU awarded Keith Parker, a former IU student and activist, with a Bicentennial Medal. While this is a great award to a very deserving person, it comes long after what must’ve been a difficult time for him at IU. “When I left IU they weren’t awarding me medals,” Parker said during the award ceremony. That said, change does come quickly, at times. In IU’s own history, there’s been plenty of pro-

IU PHA accused of white saviorism

tests and sit-ins, a tradition that lives on to this day. In 1968, about 50 Black IU students stopped the Little 500 to protest how the campus’ fraternities treated Black students differently. Even in recent times, the Rainbow Coalition made waves by pushing the IU Student Government to properly represent its students. It seems that at least on a local level, demands of activists are met well, and activists achieve their goals of change. Still, on a larger scale, there’s a pattern of institutions vehemently fighting against acts of activism, then retroactively supporting it long after the fact. Is it wrong to feel like it isn’t enough? That murals, medals and philanthropy won’t change the system that has routinely hurt Black people, as well as many other minorities, for centuries? This kind of performative activism, where demands are warped and rewards aren’t what Black people asked for puts the onus on the activists. It’s yet another opportunity for members of the movement to seem ungrateful or unrealistic because they demand too much. While it’s enjoyable to see things like Confederate statues torn down and flags get changed, the system remains the same, and that’s what needs addressing. sztownes@iu.edu

Poem: ‘Jezebel’ By Alicia Harmon

By Agness Lungu slungu@iu.edu

The Panhellenic Association at IU blocked one of its members on Instagram Jan. 30 after the member direct messaged the account commenting on a post she said she thought displayed white saviorism. The association is involved in philanthropy through Circle of Sisterhood, which raises money from the different chapters of PHA to go on mission trips. Circle of Sisterhood helped build a school in a village in Malawi, Africa, and posted a picture of some of the students who will be attending the school. White saviorism, also known as the white savior complex, is a term that describes white people providing support to nonwhite communities, often in Africa. This help is often viewed as self-serving. Junior Lauren Hallonquist, a sorority member at IU, reached out to the association after seeing the post on its Instagram story. She said she told them she is part of PHA and did not feel like the post represented the group’s ethos. She said she asked to speak to someone else because the person operating the account was not open for a conversation. In a DM to the account, Hallonquist said the photo depicted white saviorism and was poor taste. She said she would explain more on the topic, if someone was willing to learn. The Panhellenic Instagram account responded disagreeing with her statement, saying “it isn’t white saviorism. It is reflective of the people’s

whose lives are being impacted by circle of sisterhood and the picture was taken directly from indiana university’s circle of sisterhood page.” Hallonquist responded saying capitalizing on poverty to promote PHA is wrong. She was later blocked, then unfollowed, by the IU Panhellenic Instagram account. She said she has since been unblocked. Hallonquist told the Indiana Daily Student she believes mission trips where people go to poor areas and take a lot of pictures documenting the people who live there is exploitation. “As a member of Panhellenic, I felt a deep sense that this wasn’t right and this should not be happening,” Hallonquist said. “I believe that Panhellenic can be an amazing place based on my experience.” Neither the Panhellenic Association at IU nor the National Panhellenic Conference responded to the Indiana Daily Student’s requests for comment on the situation. “When we are talking about international communities, we have to be careful to not make it look like it’s our job to save them,” Hallonquist said. The former IU Panhellenic diversity and inclusion vice president, made a Twitter thread elaborating on the Circle of Sisterhood issues. She declined to comment for this story. “Panhellenic has a major problem with tokenizing and tone-deaf posting on Instagram. If you look at their feed it is very clear!! Posting people when it is convenient or fits your agenda is tokenizing,” she wrote

Content warning: This poem includes descriptions of sexual violence. I left. I had enough of you. I walked out the door, walked outside in the dark. The air was warm on my skin. It was quiet without your voice. The sky was cloudless. My head was hurting. My chest was still warm, tight, ready to defend me. If I had trusted my uneasy feelings over your conditional sweetness, maybe I would have fought. If I had not believed you, maybe you and me would not have happened. But that’s what I get for being loose, being fast, for having wanted you, even if not in the way you wanted me.

An Instagram post by the Panhellenic Association at IU was made Jan. 30, raising concerns of white saviorism.

in the Twitter thread. She wrote that the PHA social media accounts are not always responsive. “Many people have tried to DM or talk about the posts or stories but get left on read or blocked. (see later tweets below) There is no discussion or acknowledgement of people’s thoughts or forwarding of comments to VPs,” she wrote on Twitter. Halloquinist said the president of IU’s Panhellenic Association reached out to her a day after she made her post and they had a conversation to ad-

dress her concerns Feb. 3. Audria Liggins, another former member of IU Panhellenic, said this has not been the first time people have spoken about the Circle of Sisterhood and its relationship to white saviorism. “They usually frame it in the same way, helping kids in Africa,” Liggins said. “I know that missionary trips aren’t always helpful because they don’t actually solve the real issues like making the economy grow.” IU freshman, Ethan Kawamara Mugire, is from Uganda. He said he was not pleased after

seeing the Circle of Sisterhood post. He said he did not know people who go to poverty-stricken places in Africa in the name of helping publicize poverty to improve their selfimage. He said the images of Africa just contribute to the stereotype that all people in Africa are hungry and suffering. “Although the kids in the picture were happy, that picture was negative because the kind of environment those kids were in was not the best,” he said. “Publicizing that image just feeds into the stereotypes about Africa.”

I went back inside. Laid in the bed next to you, Your back turned to me, Your phone brightness high, Your volume loud. I was freezing under the blanket. After a while of trying to maintain my pride, I said sorry, knowing full well that I wasn’t wrong for saying no. But I was wrong. I did not want you. You turned around and started on me again. This time fast. You had no more patience for me, for getting me wet, for waiting for me to open up to you. I had been trying to tell you all night, I would not open for you. But you forced me open. I was cracking open on the bed for you still thinking that this is maybe how your first time goes. I struggled, grasped for the end. Red all over those white sheets. You, satisfied next me, sleeping. I’m still trying to believe it was you, not me, that was wrong.

New initiative to provide opioid overdose reversal kits

Indiana is partnering with Overdose Lifeline to make naloxone, an opioid overdose reversal medication, publically accessible at all hours. Gov. Eric Holcomb announced the initiative on Feb. 5, pledging to use federal grant money to plant at least one NaloxBox in every county in Indiana. According to the governor’s press release, each NaloxBox contains six to eight doses of naloxone, often referred to by the brand name Narcan, as well as instructions and treatment referral cards. According to NaloxBox, some units also come equipped with an alarm that sounds upon opening the box. A NaloxBox is a clear, hard box that can be mounted on external walls, similar to fire alarms. The NaloxBoxes will be installed in highly visible and easily accessible locations, said the press release. Holcomb said making the medi-

cation more available will allow civilians to act when they witness an overdose, potentially saving lives and combating the drug epidemic. “We’re committed to raising awareness about the need for bystanders to carry this life-saving drug, which is why we’ve made it available via so many avenues, oftentimes at no cost to Hoosiers,” Holcomb said in the press release. Any business or community space is eligible to apply for a NaloxBox by contacting Justin Phillips, founder and director of Overdose Lifeline. Many of the current NaloxBox locations are only accessible during business hours or require going to places that may feel judgemental, such as health departments, Phillips said. “We really want them to be in a neutral non-intimidating space,” Phillips said. In Bloomington, the Monroe County Health Department offers free naloxone nasal spray at 119 W. 7th St.

Hoosier Debit?

According to the Monroe County website, some pharmacies are registered to distribute naloxone and the Indiana Recovery Alliance provides injectable naloxone at certain hours or by appointment. Overdose Lifeline, an Indiana nonprofit dedicated to destigmatizing and treating addiction, will buy 215 NaloxBoxes with $58,200 provided by the federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s state opioid response grant, according to the press release. Phillips said Overdose Lifeline is also responsible for distributing NaloxBoxes across the state with at least one NaloxBox in all 92 counties. According to the group’s website, Phillips founded Overdose Lifeline in 2014 after her son died of a heroin overdose. Phillips said Overdose Lifeline advocated for the legalization of over-thecounter naloxone and succeeded in 2015 with the creation of Indiana Aaron’s Law, named for his son. Phillips said Overdose Lifeline strives for increased public naloxone availability. “It’s important for naloxone to be accessible without a barrier,” Phillips said. “This eliminates barriers because you don’t have to engage or interact with any human at all.” According to the press release, the business hosting the NaloxBox will be responsible for monitoring usage and requesting refills. While the main objective of the initiative is preventing overdose deaths, it also aims to educate the public on the severity of drug use and start conversations regarding addiction. People should not be afraid to get help, Phillips said. “I just hope that more people have access to the overdose reversal drug without having to feel shame or stigma,” Phillips said.

NOTHIN’ BUT NAT

This pandemic turned me into a total curmudgeon. I don’t like it. Natalie Gabor (she/her) is a junior in journalism, business marketing and philosophy.

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced me, like many others, to find joy in things normally considered ordinary or mundane. I’m not sure what it is about my bimonthly trip to Aldi for example, but something about getting all new groceries for the week at a reasonable price sends my serotonin skyrocketing. As someone particularly anxious about this pandemic, who has not been infected, I’m fairly conscious of the potential dangers of going anywhere and doing anything. I understand there are some calculated risks in any activity. As grocery shopping is a necessity, I wear two masks and hope for the best. During one trip to Aldi, quarter in hand, I walked to the grocery carts only to be cut off by a complete stranger. I entered the store and patrons were going the wrong way down aisles clearly marked with arrows to enforce social distancing. They were out of avocados. I went on a Monday so the “special buy” section was bleak. Another stranger cut me off, making me over-

whelmingly irritable. This sequence of events seems to happen every time I go. Am I okay? Before the pandemic, I considered myself fairly placid and good-natured. I wasn’t easily influenced by external behaviors and could write these encounters off as anomalies. Now, they seem ubiquitous. I’m frustrated, irritable and angry a lot of the time. I’ve turned into a total curmudgeon at 20 years old. Though I sometimes like to think so, I’m not alone in this phenomenon — Americans are actually a lot angrier in general these days. More than 80% report emotions associated with prolonged stress due to the pandemic and political unrest, according to the American Psychological Association. These stressors and uncertainty about the future breed anxiety, which then forces us to find outlets for such emotions. Unfortunately, these outlets might produce unintended consequences. For myself, these consequences include a perpetual scowl on my face when I’m out in public and see someone wearing a mask incorrectly or neglecting to put their shopping cart away. Or

when I lash out at my loved ones because I have nowhere for my emotions to go. Because the biggest problems associated with the

pandemic are a culmination of things outside of our control, I feel hopeless and restless as my day-to-day activities seem to have no real ef-

fect or outcome on the world at large. It’s important to find healthy alternative outlets to the “wait and see” experience that is living in 2021, however. Some strategies that might help include watching for signs that incite anger and allowing them to happen for a short period, according to experts quoted in the Washington Post. This allows you to feel your emotions before dealing with them in a constructive way, such as self-care. Others recommend limiting media exposure or distracting yourself with something incompatible with anger such as performing a small act of kindness. I’ve found going on daily serotonin walks, as I like to call them, has kept me sane thus far. Overall though, it’s really easy to feel mad at the world. All I have to do is read the news and see the latest egregious act of some politician or person on the other side of the political spectrum. I can look around and see all the lonely shopping carts in the parking lot awaiting an employee to bring them rightfully in line with the others. However, as easy as it is to

look at these shortcomings, it can be just as easy to see societal virtues. My therapist often says we write our own narratives and dictate the story we tell ourselves each day — even if it doesn’t feel that way. We perpetuate our negative experiences internally, but we can also tell ourselves how strong we are by overcoming such obstacles. It’s so much easier said than done and each circumstance is different, but taking small steps to change the way we view the world can be transformative. I will not stop putting my shopping cart away or saying “excuse me” when brushing past another individual, even if it feels like I’m the only one doing so. If for nothing else, it at least makes me feel better about the kind of person I’m projecting and gives me hope that maybe someone else will do the same. Behind every seemingly thoughtless act of selfservitude in someone else may be an internal struggle they don’t talk about. To get through this pandemic, maybe we all just need to cut each other a little more slack. natgabor@iu.edu

SPEAKING OF SEX

How can you access PrEP in Bloomington? Peyton Jeffers (she/they) is a senior in human development, family studies and human sexuality.

How can Bloomington residents access PrEP for HIV prevention? Pre-exposure prophylaxis, or PrEP, is a daily antiviral pill prescribed to HIV-negative adolescents and adults who are at risk of getting HIV if they are exposed to the virus. The medication is highly effective when taken as indicated, reducing the risk of getting HIV from sex by about 99% and from injecting drugs by at least 74%, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Among those who could benefit from using the drug are gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men, heterosexual men and women who have high-risk exposure, transgender women and people who inject drugs. “It is recommended for anyone that is currently HIV negative and has a sexual partner with HIV and/or does not consistently use condoms with sex and/or has been diagnosed with another STI in the past 6 months,” said Dr.

Beth Rupp, the medical director of the IU Health Center and a physician who specializes in family medicine. “It is also recommended for people who inject drugs with shared needles.” Approximately 1.1 million Americans are considered at risk for HIV and candidates for PrEP, yet only 90,000 PrEP prescriptions were filled in commercial pharmacies between 2015 and 2016. Further, CDC researchers found that while two-thirds of people who could benefit from PrEP are Black or Latino, they account for the smallest percentage of prescriptions. Discrimination, stigma, cost and mistrust of the healthcare system have led to these pervasive disparities in HIV prevention and treatment, particularly for Black and Latino men who have sex with men, Black women and transgender women. Similarly, there are about 1.2 million Americans currently living with HIV. About 14% of people with HIV are unaware they have it, indicating severe disparities among HIV prevention and treatment strategies. Other barriers to preven-

tion and treatment include lack of individual awareness about HIV or PrEP, lack of access to providers who are knowledgeable about PrEP, cost of medical care, stigma or concern that parents or friends might find out they are using PrEP, Rupp said. Students who are interested in starting PrEP can make an appointment with one of the medical providers who

prescribes this medication at the Student Health Center. Students can call 812-8557688 to schedule an appointment for PrEP. Not all physicians and nurse practitioners at the Health Center are trained to prescribe PrEP, so it’s important to call to make an appointment to get in with the appropriate medical provider.

For the broader Bloomington community, IU Health Positive Link operates a weekly primary care and PrEP clinic at its Bloomington location, including telehealth services. All services are provided free of cost to the client and are available to any HIV-positive individual. Positive Link takes a comprehensive approach to HIV prevention and care,

providing PrEP navigation, HIV testing, education and individual case management to clients. It also offers three options for testing: in-office by appointment, private at-home testing and weekly drive-up testing from 2-6 p.m. on Mondays at its Bloomington location. If you are interested in any of these options, you can contact Positive Link at 812-353-3169. Sophomore Evan Theis is a Peer Health and Wellness Educator and co-president of the Sexual Health Advocacy Group. He said it’s important to maintain your status as HIV-negative, which means knowing your status, getting tested frequently and using condoms in addition to using PrEP if you are prescribed it. He also stressed the importance of increasing HIV awareness and advocacy in our community. “Don’t be afraid to talk about it,” Theis said. “Everybody knows someone who can benefit from PrEP. Start that conversation because it’s worth it.” pmjeffer@iu.edu

RAMA’S TAKES

Wellness days won’t work. Give us our spring break. Rama Sardar (she/her) is a freshman in media.

What seems to be a neverending pandemic has taken away any sense of normalcy for college students. IU students have missed out on traditional rites of passage like an in-person welcome week and the induction ceremony for first year students. IU has added another item onto students’ list of grievances — no spring break. IU Provost Lauren Robel announced in a statement Dec. 4, 2020 that three wellness days — Feb. 16, March 24 and April 22 — would replace a full spring break. The wellness days apply to both undergraduate and graduate students — with the exception of law students — and there will be no classes on these three days. Implementing three seemingly-random days during the spring semester when students do not have any classes, but will still have classwork due that week, does not seem to provide students with a break at all. These socalled wellness days are an ineffective alternative to an actual spring break.

As a first year college student myself, this academic year has been anything but easy. Going through a fall semester without any breaks and then a nearly two month long winter break away from campus was immensely stressful. IU canceled spring break for this academic year to minimize the chances of students traveling out of state and returning back to campus, curbing the risks of an increase in COVID-19 infection rates. In the university’s defense, this seems like a logical way to prevent students from engaging in irresponsible vacationing during these dangerous times. So why not give students a week off on campus instead? During the weeks that these three days take place, students will still have classwork due and may very well be using those days to get caught up on their assignments. I, for one, will be spending those days on class projects and homework. If the university had kept spring break but told students to stay on campus during that week, and continued mandatory COVID-19

testing, it would have been a more effective way to allow students to relax while also avoiding an increase in infection rates. Kierra Compton, a first year student majoring in media with a concentration in cinema and media studies, believes that these wellness days aren’t different from

any other day in college. “I don’t really see a difference between wellness days and weekends,” Compton said. “I’ll just be working on piles of homework like any other Saturday or Sunday.” Additionally, these seemingly-randomly placed wellness days could create myriad scheduling issues for

faculty. Professors may have to hold additional classes to make up for this lost time, which in turn will actually cause students to have more work and stress. The stress of the pandemic has made it even more apparent that students are in need of an actual break during the semester. While

IU has to balance many different responsibilities during this time, it is still important to prioritize the mental well-being of their students in a legitimate way. Wellness days are an attempt to help with mental health issues, but they are not enough. rasardar@iu.edu

Last week’s data included IU’s 200,000th mitigation test in Bloomington since the program started in August. Bloomington has a cumulative mitigation positivity rate of 1.4%. IU has consistently stated a goal of 50,000 tests per week across all campuses. The IDS reported Tuesday IU accepted 12,000 exemptions last week, which would have brought IU’s total to nearly 50,000 if

those tests had been conducted. Mitigation, asymptomatic and symptomatic testing in Bloomington all had an average response time of 22 hours last week. The dashboard also reported a 0.2% prevalence rate, a decrease from 0.5% in last week’s update. Eight additional cases in Bloomington were selfreported to IU last week. Faculty and staff across all campuses had a 0.1% positivity rate out of 4,849 mitigation tests. In voluntary asymptomatic testing, 10 people tested positive out of 913 tests across all campuses.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, Lexie knew she wanted to be part of making life closer to normal again. She’s one of a few dozen volunteers in Bloomington, pushing to vaccinate as many people each day as possible as new, more contagious strains of the coronavirus begin to arrive in the United States. “I think the vaccine was pretty much our only plan, our only real plan of how we were going to beat this virus, or at least keep it somewhat under control,” Lexie said. “So, I see the vaccines and the vaccine effort as such a big deal.” * * *

Lexie remembers reading emails from the state and watching news reports on the progress of COVID-19 vaccine trials last summer and fall. She remembers wanting to be involved, to help however she could. Even though she’d been retired from her nursing career for two years, she was ready to begin treating patients again, as soon as she could. Lexie and her family have deep roots in Bloomington. Her father, grandfather and father-in-law are all doctors in Bloomington. She went to Bloomington High School South, and her husband went to Bloomington High School North. Lexie worked as a nurse here for more than 15 years. She worked at the IU Health Bloomington hospital in the surgery and labor units as well as at The Eye Center. But in November 2018, with strenuous schedules between her and her husband, Lexie retired to take care of her children — her 12-yearold son Weston and 10-yearold daughter Caroline. When the pandemic came, Lexie and her children spent all day in the

house. Her kids were on their school-distributed iPads all day, and they would sometimes ask her for help with concepts she didn’t remember. “I wasn't so great, so I had to Google a lot of stuff on my own,” Lexie said. “They would read these poems that were cute and great and everything, but I couldn't remember the terminology for all the different types of poems. It’s one of those concepts I didn’t even know how to explain to her.” Caroline and Weston’s classes returned to in-person sessions in September, leaving time at home for Lexie as the pandemic continued on around her. She said the time was boring, but she knew the vaccine was coming. So she waited for her chance to help the Bloomington community. That’s all she was looking forward to. She knew the vaccine distribution process would need nurses to administer the shots, and she’d known for months she wanted to be one of them. “I definitely wanted to be involved and be involved in any way possible,” Lexie said. * * * Caudill said it’s been hard to get long-term information about how many doses the state is distributing to the county. She often finds out on a weekly basis how many doses Monroe County will get from the state in a given week. “We've got people waiting in the wings to get it,” Caudill said. “We could open up additional sites. We have a lot of demand. So, if we could get lots of vaccine, we could get lots of vaccines out to people. The state just hasn't been getting a lot.” Caudill said it was unclear why the state and Monroe County have not been receiving anticipated supply. The state requests vaccines from the federal government, but doesn’t always get the full amount it asks for. Once Indiana receives its supply, the state government then decides how many doses are shipping to each local community. And now, in the middle of

February, the first set of people to receive their first dose from the Convention Center are starting to return for their second. That means the rise in demand for appointments is far outpacing the number of doses available, Caudill said. Patients are immediately scheduled for their second dose when they receive their first. Because there are a fixed number of appointments available, that means fewer slots are available for people to receive their first doses. The more doses of the COVID-19 vaccine a county uses from what it currently has, the more it will receive in future shipments, Caudill said. That’s one reason why it’s important to use all of the surplus. Each vial has 10 doses, and if the final person of the day requires a nurse to open a new vial, the rest must be used up that day or thrown away, Caudill said. “There’s not much,” Caudill said of surplus doses. “Some days we have none. And none is our goal.” Lexie said there are only a small handful of doses left at the end of her shifts. Indiana is currently administering around 76% of its given vaccines as of Feb. 14, according to the CDC’s data. There is currently a standby list with more than 4,000 names to receive surplus doses in Monroe County. If selected, the patient must be able to arrive at the facility within 30 minutes of notification. The list is prioritized by age. The older a person is, the higher up they are on the list. “This the first time that being old gets you something good,” Lexie remembers an elderly patient telling her. * * * With an extra dose in her vial, the first person she thought to call was her 77-year-old mom. “Can you be here in 15 minutes?” Lexie asked her. It was the end of Lexie's shift on Jan. 16, the first week the Convention Center clinic was open. There was not yet a formal wait list, and Lexie had to finish her vial.

Her mom made it just before the facility closed. She was proud she dressed correctly, as Lexie had told her — a short sleeve shirt under her long-sleeved top. Lexie helped her mom take off her long-sleeved shirt and roll up her sleeve to reach her deltoid. Coming from a family of doctors, there she was, vaccinating her mom, taking her one step closer to living with fewer worries. After Lexie gave her mother her first dose of the vaccine, the two sat in the designated waiting area and scheduled her next appointment. They were the only ones left in the room. The clinic had closed, and Lexie remembers her mom telling her she was happy and grateful. Many patients tell Lexie how relieved they are to receive the vaccine, but it makes Lexie just as relieved to distribute it. Even as she sluggishly forces herself out of bed at 5 a.m. each Saturday, she feels a sense of purpose. She said her two cups of coffee before leaving the house tend to help, too. She could see how much it meant to her mom and all the elderly patients she’s had. For nearly a year, those elderly patients have sheltered in their homes, hiding from a pandemic where they have the most to lose. Over 486,000 Americans have died from COVID-19. Roughly 80% of those deaths are from those ages 65 or above, according to CDC data. “I think it’s our best chance at winning the race,” Lexie said of the COVID-19 vaccine. Lexie and her mom both received their second doses last week. Her work in the clinic along with her own completed vaccination gives Lexie hope for a return to her life before the pandemic. She wants to take her kids back to their robotics and gymnastics practices again. She wants to be back with her own family safely again. And by giving out the vaccine, Lexie is helping families she’ll never meet regain their own sense of normalcy. She hears stories of the lives she’s bringing back together again.

The new Maher of Bloomington IU men’s soccer freshman Joey Maher is guided by his brother

ILLUSTRATION BY DONYÁ COLLINS

By Evan Gerike egerike@iu.edu | @EvanGerike

When Joey Maher moved into his brother’s old room at IU, there was a letter waiting for him. It was written by his brother Jack, an IU men’s soccer defender who would soon be selected No. 2 overall by Nashville SC in the MLS SuperDraft. The letter congratulated Joey on becoming a Hoosier and gave him advice on the collegiate athlete lifestyle. At the bottom was a message. “Your biggest fan is one call away,” it read. Two years ago when Jack came to IU, he was in a similar spot to Joey, looking for a way onto the team. When Jack left, he was the Big Ten Defender of the Year and a United Soccer Coaches Second Team All-American. Now Joey is trying to fill Jack’s cleats as much as he has his bedroom. Joey committed to play soccer at IU in March 2019, just three months after Jack and IU ended their season with a 2-0 loss to Maryland in the College Cup. Jack would be a junior when Joey joined IU as a freshman. They would be on the same team for the first time since Joey was 8, before they were split up to play with their respective age groups. Of course, playing with his brother was a big draw to signing with IU. But he was also joining a historic program with a team strong enough to compete for another national championship. “Nothing can beat this program,” Joey said. “The coaches, the players, they all have this amazing culture, and that’s something that I really looked at.” But it wasn’t meant to happen. Instead, Jack would

enter the MLS SuperDraft, Major League Soccer’s amateur player draft, on Jan. 9. He’d be taken second overall, greeted at his front door by his new team’s general manager and a busload of superfans. Jack would have loved to play with his brother, he said, but as he gained a better understanding of where he’d be drafted, he chose what was best for him. “At the end of the day, it was something that Joey said, that this was something I’ve been dreaming about ever since I could remember,” Jack said. The Maher household was filled with friends and family waiting to celebrate with Jack during the draft. When his name was called, Jack hugged his parents, then pulled in Joey. It became a bittersweet moment for Joey, he said. While proud of his older brother, it also meant he’d be the only Maher at IU. “I just want what’s best for my big brother,” Joey said. “Yeah, it’s a little upsetting we’ll not be in an IU uniform together, but I felt like he made the right decision.” Their relationship goes both ways. Despite Jack being two years older, he said he learns just as much from Joey as Joey does from him. “He’s absolutely someone that I look up to in a sense,” Jack said. “He’s someone that I know whenever we’re with each other, it’s this unwavering commitment to making each other better.” They don’t see each other much anymore, since Jack is in Nashville, Tennessee, and Joey is in Bloomington. Instead, they talk on the phone multiple times a week, as much about “The Office” as defending. They’re competitive, too. Joey still has a scar he earned after hitting the back

of his head on a chair during an indoor soccer game when he was in first grade. “It’s the first time your brother is actually beating you in a game of soccer, something you think you’re really good at,” Jack said. “I remember pushing Joey. It was a nice little love tap, that’s what I like to call it.” Now Joey is following in Jack’s footsteps, but he’ll have to blaze his own path on a team a year removed from its last game – a heartbreaking 1-0 loss to the University of California, Santa Barbara in the NCAA Tournament in December 2019. The draft was on the second day of Joey’s IU freshman orientation. He headed back to Bloomington the next day. He started preparing for a season unlike any IU soccer has dealt with before, starting in February instead of the fall like normal. Part of Joey’s preparations for the season include watching film – specifically, his brother’s. “We would go through and watch a lot of my game film, and playing with guys like Spencer Glass, Daniel Munie, Roman [Celentano] in the back of the net,” Jack said. “Every single person that I’ve played with, he’s going to have the ability to play with at Indiana.” The film study has helped Joey pick up on the tendencies of his teammates and how he needs to feed them. The brothers send each other game clips to analyze. Sometimes Joey has a question about film from a Premier League game, and sometimes Jack wants to ask about his positioning. But if Joey needs help looking at film from this year or needs advice on the field or just needs a friend, he knows where to go. His biggest fan is just one call away. TOP PHOTO BY SAM HOUSE | IDS

IU loses twice to No. 1 Wisconsin IU’s Mandema wins Player of the Week

By Amanda Foster amakfost@iu.edu | @amandafoster_15

IU volleyball faced No. 1 Wisconsin this weekend, losing in three straight sets Friday and Saturday. Wisconsin remains undefeated while IU is now 2-6. The Hoosiers continued their trend of coming out strong in the first set and losing momentum in the next two sets in both matches. On Friday, IU recorded eight blocks in the first set with freshman middle blocker Leyla Blackwell leading the charge. Blackwell recorded two kills and one block in the first 4 points for IU and won a long rally with a block against Wisconsin senior middle blocker Dana Rettke. The Hoosiers kept up with the Badgers defensively but lost the first set 25-21. They had a significant decrease in energy and production for sets two and three, losing 2517 and 25-13. “I think early in the match (Wisconsin) played poorly,” head coach Steve Aird said. “You had a window to steal the match but we needed to put some real pressure on them and we’re just not there yet.” The pressure on Wisconsin largely came in the form of holding Rettke, 2019-2020 Big Ten Female Athlete of the Year, to seven kills in three sets. Rettke typically averages 3.37 per set. “She’ll be player of the year,” Aird said of Rettke. “Holding her to that was unreal.” While no player on IU had more than five kills on the night, freshman outside hitter Morgan Geddes contributed five kills at key times to stop Wisconsin momentum and put IU within a few points. The Hoosiers recorded just 21 kills total. IU only recorded two more blocks after the first set but still got one more than

Wisconsin with nine. IU had a negative hitting percentage for the first time this season with 23 attack errors. “We have too many good arms to hit negative,” Aird said. “I thought defensively at the net we blocked a lot of balls, but against the No.1 team in the nation, you just can’t hit negatively and think you’ve got a shot.” Luckily, the Hoosiers were able to come back and improve Saturday, hitting .250 in the three sets played. This makes them the second team this season to hit over .200 against No. 1 Wisconsin since Illinois with .202. Similarly to Friday, the first set ended in a 25-23 Wisconsin win with IU playing confidently and cleanly, but that momentum fell off again in the second set, with the Hoosiers losing 25-11. “I think game two was a testament to their serving,” Aird said. “We struggled to serve and receive and they kind of strangled us and didn’t let us do anything offensively.” However, IU was able to rally in the third set and came close to a win with kills coming from freshmen Blackwell, Stockham and Geddes at key moments. Wisconsin ultimately won the set 26-24 with a go-ahead block from Rettke. Geddes tied her careerhigh of eight kills, second

behind Blackwell with nine. Blackwell hit 1.000 with five kills in the first two sets and posted a .643 hitting percentage on the night. Freshman middle blocker Savannah Kjolhede and sophomore outside hitter

Ashley Zulauf also hit over .500 on the night. “I’m disappointed we didn’t pick off games one and three,” Aird said. “At some point we’ve got to grow up and find an ability to win those games.”

After leading the IU water polo team to a 4-0 record in its first weekend of play, junior Izzy Mandema was recognized as the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Player of the Week, according to its Twitter page. “I was so happy,” Mandema said. “I actually had surgery last year, so just being able to come back and play completely and receive that honor from the MPSF was a really big deal for me.” Mandema began the 2021 season with 18 goals, six steals and an assist across four games, and IU water polo head coach Taylor Dodson said this performance wasn’t shocking. “It didn’t surprise me at all,” Dodson said. “The more game experience she’s been able to have, the better. I think it sets a really good precedent for herself and the team moving forward.” Mandema has been a part of every game in her collegiate career, setting an example for freshmen such as Kiki Mein, Sophie Wazzan and Kalie White, who scored a combined eight goals in their first college matchups. Freshman goalie Haley Hunter also contributed by saving a combined eight goals in her first weekend of play. IU and Mandema showed their aggression against opposing defenses in the weekend’s play, an

attribute she has historically shown in her matchups, Mandema’s father Jaap Mandema, said. “Very determined in what she wanted to do, very dedicated to what she wanted to do and very competitive,” he said of Mandema. The Hoosiers were scheduled to face Michigan in Ann Arbor, Michigan, on Feb. 14, but the games were canceled due to additional health and safety issues in the Wolverines’ program. The team took advantage of this additional time, Dodson said. The players are using the time to recover, while Dodson is trying to keep the game day spirit alive, she said. “Tuesday was a lighter day. We were only in the pool for an hour — normally we’re in for two-and-a-half hours,” Dodson said. “We’re treating Saturday like a game day. We’ve got an intersquad scrimmage where we’ll pick teams and they’ll have a theme, and they get pretty excited about that.” Mandema said the team thrives in uncertainty. “We really work together and think, no matter what, we’re going to play everyday like we have the biggest game of our lives tomorrow,” Mandema said. The Hoosiers are scheduled to play Michigan and St. Francis University on Saturday and Sunday in Ann Arbor. The time for the team’s first match against Michigan has not yet been set.

THAT’S WATT’S UP

TH

Don’t overthink IU’s uncharacteristic inside struggles Sunday Doug Wattley is a senior in sports media.

Midway through the third quarter, sophomore Mackenzie Holmes was fed a usual post touch. She turned her shoulder and laid it on the rim, but the ball bounced out. Holmes used her vision and corralled the rebound, then put it up a second time. No good – this time, it was an uglier-looking shot. Staying with it, she battled for another rebound and forced another one up, missing the third attempt by even more. “(Holmes) just had one of those days where nothing easy went in and then she was overthinking and then she was pressing,” head coach Teri Moren said. Protected by a 15-point lead, the triple-misfire did not feel particularly destructive in the moment, but the Fighting Illini fought all the way back inside one possession in the fourth quarter. IU women’s basketball was able to close the game by converting its final three free throws to finalize the 5850 victory, but it should have never been this tight against a team with a 1-12 conference record. That possession was a fraction of the Hoosiers’ offensive struggles inside with the team only hitting 8-of-21 layups against Illinois Sunday

afternoon. Holmes, whose 18 points per game leads the team, ended up with 7 points on an alarming 1-16 shooting day. Once she missed her first several shots, it seemed being in her own head affected other parts of the game. “There were moments where she missed coverages thinking about her offense,” Moren said. Her rough performance is surprising because she has been so efficient, scoring in double figures in all but two games this year. She even set a program record by hitting all 13 of her field goal attempts in the season’s opening game. Despite the off game, there is no reason to believe this is the start of a spiral for the sophomore. It’s difficult to be as productive as she’s been in every contest, so a dud like this is not a big deal. If anything, it is a blessing that it came against a team who has struggled like Illinois has. “Nobody feels worse about her performance than (Holmes) does, but she is happy that her team got the win,” Moren said. On a night where two of IU’s best players — Holmes and junior guard Grace Berger — had forgettable games, the reserves picked up the slack. Once again, freshman

forward Kiandra Brown was a massive energy boost, while sophomore guard Grace Waggoner registered a sweet rejection and played what was probably her best game this season. Sunday’s game proves that even if the Hoosiers do not play to their potential, they have enough grit and improved depth to gut out a victory. “It definitely wasn’t our night in all areas,” senior guard Ali Patberg said. “But like coach said, it’s not going to be pretty all the time, and we found a way to win.” IU has four games remaining in the next two weeks, including matchups against No. 12 Michigan on Thursday and a road test against Ohio State, which is also ranked No. 12. No matter how poorly they played in Champaign, Illinois, the result is what counts. The Hoosiers could not have afforded a loss to Illinois in their tight race for the Big Ten regular season title. It would have been their third conference loss while No. 9 Maryland and No. 12 Michigan still only have one. “Two weeks from now, nobody will hear how we played here,” Moren said. “It will just show up as a win.” dwattley@iu.edu

WRESTLING

IU defeats Maryland 27-13 on senior day in Bloomington By Tristan Jackson tripjack@iu.edu | @tristan_jackso

IU wrestling took down Maryland 27-13 on its senior day Sunday in Wilkinson Hall. The Hoosiers scored their most points in a dual meet since their 32-0 victory on senior day against the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga on Feb. 24, 2019. Six individual Hoosiers won Sunday, and three — 125-pound freshman Jacob Moran, 133-pound redshirt junior Kyle Luigs and 174-pound sophomore DJ Washington — won by pin, all of which came in the first period. “It was my last match here, I knew I had to put it on the line and ended up getting the win, and it means a lot to me being able

to do that,” Luigs said. Luigs was one of two graduating Hoosier wrestlers honored before the meet, and he was able to pick up his first win of this season in his last match at Wilkinson Hall. He followed up Moran’s pin in the first match of the day with one of his own, putting IU up 12-0 early in the dual. “When you’re out there warming up and you see your teammate get a pin it really fires you up, gets you going, and it definitely leads into my match as well,” Luigs said. “When I see them get the pin I’m like ‘all right, let’s get the ball rolling.’” Moran now has a 5-3 record between dual and exhibition matches this season, and Luigs improved to 1-5 with the win. “I could just feel the en-

ergy from the bench after those two pins,” IU head coach Angel Escobedo said after the match. “It was like they knew we were going to win this dual.” Two Hoosiers had matches go into overtime. Junior heavyweight Rudy Streck, whose birthday was Sunday, and 165-pound sophomore Nick South needed extra time, but they both came away with wins. South’s match went to three overtimes after no points were scored in the first. South, who is No. 25 in his weight class, was able to score a reversal on redshirt freshman Jonathan Spadafora in the second overtime period. South held control the entire third overtime period and picked up the win. He’s now 3-4 on the season. “I thought in the overtime, that’s when he got ag-

gressive and he scored,” Escobedo said. “So for him it’s just going to be trying to get aggressive in the beginning.” Streck only needed one overtime in his match. With the score tied 1-1, he was able to gain control and score a takedown on freshman Garrett Kappes with five seconds left in the overtime period to secure his first victory of the season. He’s now 1-3 this season. “He was just sticking through the process of hand fighting and looking for openings, and he just took a shot, took a chance and took a risk,” Escobedo said. “That’s what we talk about, taking that risk, you have to be the first guy to take the risk, especially in overtime.” No. 8 sophomore DJ Washington dominated in the 174-pound weight class for the Hoosiers, pin-

Redshirt sophomore Graham Rooks, who is No. 14 in the 149-pound weight class, returned to the lineup after missing IU’s last two meets. Rooks was able to pick up a 6-2 win in his return to the lineup, improving to 2-1 this season. “The more matches he gets the better he becomes, so for him it’s great to get this extra match,” Escobedo said. “He gutted it through. It was gritty, it was a gritty win and he’s going to be fine.” IU will take on in-state rival Purdue in its last regular season dual meet at 8 p.m. on Feb. 22 in West Lafayette, Indiana. The No. 17 Boilermakers are 3-5 on the season and have only faced ranked teams up to this point. Purdue won its last match 21-12 against No. 22 Michigan State on Friday.

Student OnlyFans creators discuss sex work By Taylor Harmon

usually ranges between $5 and $25 per month, depending on how often the creator uploads content. In addition, some viewers may pay creators for requested videos that are sent only to the viewer. For IU senior Adrianne Embry, who goes by @ denise.j on OnlyFans, online sex work is not only a way to make money during college, but also a way for her to regain control over her body. “I find it so liberating that I get to decide who sees my body and how they see it,” Embry said. “As someone who was sexually abused, it’s about getting that control back.” Embry started as an online sex worker with her girlfriend back in 2015 on Reddit. She said she began receiving problematic and racist comments from clientele, including being called racist and aggressive slurs, while her white girlfriend was called a “princess” and “queen.” Embry believes this is largely due to how porn sites present their videos, including titles of the videos, the types of videos presented on the home page and the way women are treated in these videos. She said she has had a different experience on OnlyFans. “The degradation of Black women on porn sites is so normalized,” Embry said. “These men lust after us, then make us feel worthless. With OnlyFans, I’m more in

A rising number of students — in Bloomington and around the world — are turning to sex work to help pay for school, and some say it can be liberating as well as healing if done in a safe way— a way in which people are in control of their bodies and their work. In December 2020, New York Times writer Nicholas Kristof wrote a lengthy report on the children of PornHub and the horrors behind the site’s videos. The article highlighted many issues prevalent in most large porn companies, including videos being posted of unconsenting, underage women. On top of that, sex workers are more likely to be victims of sexual and physical violence, as well as acts of racism than their non sex worker counterparts. Because of these issues, sex workers, a rising number of whom are students helping pay for school, are moving their work to smaller platforms where they have more control over their work and bodies. One of these sites is OnlyFans, which, according to Google Trends, had an economic growth rate in the past year of between 304% and 334%. OnlyFans is a subscription-based adult film website where creators upload videos and receive direct profit from their viewers. Subscriptions to an OnlyFans account

control of who sees my content, so I don’t get that as much now.” Ivy Tech Community College junior Greta King is also an OnlyFans creator. After being flagged on Instagram for posting boudoir photos, she was encouraged by friends to create an OnlyFans, where she could actually profit off her content. “Most of my content was for artistic expression,” King said. “Once I realized I could monetize it, especially in college, I figured I should go for it.” King said even though many Onlyfans creators rely on social media sites like Instagram and Twitter to promote their accounts, they aren’t friendly platforms for sex workers. Instagram has rules against sexual content and sexual solicitation, but King said sexual solicitation is more heavily monitored by the site. “Instagram doesn’t care about nudity, what they do care about is women making money off of their bodies by selling photos, videos or sexual services. To them, it’s not OK,” King said. King said that the porn industry and sex work have become much more accepted by the general public in recent years, especially in younger generations. As the public becomes more accepting of this type of work, how to consume porn more ethically has been more widely discussed.

that they should profit off of women’s bodies.” Embry takes issue with people who spread negative rhetoric about sex workers. “I hate when people say it’s exploitative,” Embry said. “There are kinks that need to be worked out, but if you think it’s so degrading then why are you making it worse by writing or saying nasty things about us? Who does that help?” Aside from thinking about where you get your porn and who is being affected by it, Embry has a few suggestions about how to support sex workers, whether you know them personally or not. “If you know a sex worker, subscribe to their account and promote it even if you

don’t watch the content,” Embry said. “And when you hear someone saying bad things about sex workers, call them out. It’s those ideas that put us in danger of being targets of violence and hate.” King also believes that the conversations surrounding sex work are integral to protecting sex workers and that education can help push conversations in the right direction. “Anyone can benefit from educating themselves, being an ally, and understanding how much of a backbone sex work is for society,” King said. “Even if it is so underprotected.”

“Now that it’s the most acceptable and accessible it’s ever been, you have to ask yourself, ‘Where is it coming from?’” King said. “With OnlyFans, creators go through an extensive process to set up their account, so it is really difficult for underage and non-consenting people to slip through the cracks.” While some arguments have been made that women are exploiting their bodies rather than empowering themselves on websites like OnlyFans, King and Embry disagree. “Exploitation implies that we aren’t in control,” King said. “It sounds like fear mongering. When women make money off of their bodies it angers a lot of men because it’s taught to them

‘Into the Woods’ finishes without any COVID-19 cases By Alexis Lindenmayer lindena@iu.edu | @lexilindenmayer

Act 1 of “Into the Woods” is about fairytales and happy endings. Cinderella gets the prince, Little Red Riding Hood kills the wolf and Rapunzel is rescued. However, Act 2 shows what follows happily ever after as fairytale characters work together as a community to defeat a larger enemy: a giant. Senior and director Kyle Mason said the giant in this story could represent COVID-19. Similar to the story, it doesn’t matter whose fault the problem is, society just needs to work together to stop it. The cast of “Into the Woods” was able to rehearse, produce and perform its three in-person shows on Feb. 12-13 all while staying safe and following COVID-19 guidelines. Operating under strict rules that included frequent testing, restricted interactions and social distancing, the production concluded its run with zero positive coronavirus cases. “Lucky enough, we never had one slip up the whole time,” Mason said. “No one’s roommate tested positive, no one’s family member tested positive and we went the whole time safely.” To guarantee safety, cast members had to sign a contract detailing safety precautions. According to junior and stage manager Spencer Lawson, the contract said cast members should stay in quarantine bubbles of only cast members and roommates, get tested frequently and monitor their health. Lawson said despite early apprehension, the guidelines were easy to follow and he

thinks the cast adjusted well. “I love all the cast and the crew people, so it just felt like I was going to work with my friends when I was walking into the rehearsal room,” Lawson said. “Not like I was isolated or alone.” There were three performances of “Into the Woods,” with a show on Friday and a matinee and an evening closing show Saturday. Each audience was limited to 18 people and performances took place in the Grand Hall at the Neal-Marshall Black Culture Center. Audience members had to email a negative COVID-19 test to the director and stage

manager to attend the show. At the show, attendees wore masks and got their temperature taken at the doors. The cast has been rehearsing on and off since November, taking Thanksgiving and winter break off. Since returning to Bloomington in January, the cast rehearsed six days a week, Mason said. For the majority of the rehearsal time, the cast practiced in senior Taylor Ward’s basement. The cast wore gloves and masks to ensure safety. Two weeks before opening night, they started rehearsing in Grand Hall without gloves. Senior Maya McQueen

played the Baker’s Wife. She said the transition from practicing in a small basement to a larger stage was difficult. “Even rehearsing in someone’s basement certainly wasn’t easy, and it was a difficult adjustment,” McQueen said. “But all of us were just eager to put in all the work that we could and do whatever it would take to make the show happen.” While the gloves came off for the official performance, the cast wore masks for the entire musical. Junior Kevin Dolan, who played the Baker, said it was difficult to adjust to acting and performing with a mask. He had an issue with

his mask falling beneath his nose while he sang, he said. “It’s something you have to get used to and just lift it right back up, and you keep on going as if it’s not even there,” Dolan said. “By the end of the show, you’ll realize that it’s really not that different, and you just have to put the mask on and then do what you do.” Mason said he wanted to put on “Into the Woods” since his sophomore year and that themes from the show fit perfectly with today. “It makes them think about them as a community versus them as individuals, and those things are glaringly

relevant,” Mason said. “You can tie it to a lot of things, not just COVID-19, as there’s something to be said about it connecting to social injustices.” McQueen said she was happy to spread this message in a live theater performance, especially since live performances are so rare today. “During a pandemic you can feel very isolated and alone, but theater is about community and coming together,” McQueen said. “I think that is what ‘Into the Woods’ is about, so I am very happy that we were able to share this message of not being alone to audiences.”
