Ladies First to perform in March By Robert Mack


Back on the map For the first time since 1994, the IU Cycling Club is having an event here in Bloomington By Dylan Wallace | @Dwall_1

Starting a few weeks ago, every Monday through Friday leading up to April 20 and 21, cyclists are practicing at Bill Armstrong Stadium to compete in Little 500, or so it seems. Every rider is there in anticipation of Little 500, but not every single one is solely focused on the most anticipated event of the year at IU. Unbeknownst to many, IU has its own cycling club. The club has 80 individuals and competes in against other schools in the Midwest Collegiate Cycling Conference. There are seven collegiate race weekends each year, and March 3 and 4, the IU team competed at Lindsey Wilson College in Columbia, Kentucky. But, for the first time since 1994, the cycling club is having an

event here in Bloomington. Senior Abel Duran, executive board member and rider, said in years past the club was more about individual riders wanting to qualify for nationals rather than the inclusivity of the group. So, Duran said deciding to have an event in Bloomington is a step in the culture change he and his executive members are trying to create for the club. “We wanted to change the approach altogether,” Duran said. “It’s more along the lines of trying to build the club from the ground up, not trying to focus on getting individuals to nationals.” The event this weekend on March 10 and 11 is called the Candy Stripe Classic. A range of about 120 to 140 individuals have signed up for the event, as well as around 15 teams. On March 10, teams at the event will compete in the Team Time Trial.

These time trials will be a 5.6mile race, beginning at 8:15 a.m., through the trails and hills of the Morgan-Monroe State Forest. The results from this race count toward teams attempting to qualify for collegiate nationals May 4 to 6 in Grand Junction, Colorado.

“It’s more along the lines of trying to build the club from the ground up, not trying to focus on getting individuals to nationals.” Abel Duran, Executive board member and rider

After the trials, there will be a road race in the same location. The road race is a 14-mile loop and the distance of the race will

depend on the respective tiers. Based on experience and talent, the tiers are divided into four — A, B, C and D, with A being the top tier. The IU team most strongly represents in the B tier, as it swept the podium in last weekend’s road race in Kentucky and criterium race by executing its strategy to perfection. “We had one rider break away and go out ahead while the rest of the team blocked the road for him,” junior rider Kurtis Greer said. “We went one, two, three in both races, and it was really amazing to watch.” SEE CYCLING, PAGE 6

Ladies First, IU’s all-female a cappella group, will perform its “Spring Showcase” at 8 p.m., March 23, at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater. The award-winning group has produced six albums and has been featured at many events such as IU Dance Marathon, the Indiana Governor’s Conference for Women, and more, according to the Ladies First website. The group’s two-hour March 23 program will include songs such as “Hymn for the Weekend” by Coldplay, “Superstition” by Stevie Wonder and “I Wanna Dance with Somebody” by Whitney Houston, as well as songs by Carrie Underwood, Little Big Town, Alicia Keys and from the Broadway show “Dear Evan Hansen.” The show will honor its seniors with a solo performance. It is the last show many of them will participate in with the Ladies First group. Constance Cook Glen, director of music in general studies at the Jacobs School of Music, advises the Ladies First performers. However, Elise Castro, business director of Ladies First, said the group produces every element of the show themselves, including arranging their own covers. Hannah Naddy, senior and music director of Ladies First, said while most of the singers have musical experience, the group’s more senior members will train less SEE A CAPPELLA, PAGE 6

BPD offers tips about spring break theft By Caroline Anders | @clineands

RPS opens campus housing for spring break By Emily Issacman | @emilyisaacman

For the first time, students will be able to stay in their rooms during spring break. “Some students don’t have anywhere to go,” said Andi Cailles, director of residential life at IU. “Some students have to stay and work.” Instead of consolidating students into select residence halls as they have in the past, this academic year Residential Programs and Services began allowing students to stay in their rooms for free during school breaks. As of the morning of March 7, 1,574 students had registered for spring break housing. “We think the demand has indicated that it’s a service students appreciate,” Cailles said. Cailles said many students stay for one or two days at the beginning or end of the break, depending on their travel plans. Previously, students would not have been able to access their rooms once break began. Freshman Heather Ahmann, a Bloomington resident, signed up for spring break housing just in case she needed anything from her room. She also plans to feed her roommate’s fish. If students plan to stay on campus for any portion of the break, they must register online

through the RPS website. The registration system allows RPS to track and grant card access exclusively to students staying on campus. During Thanksgiving break, Cailles said there were several problems with card access when RPS opened all residence halls for the first time. However, she expects spring break to be a smoother transition. At least one residential assistant will live in each building, Cailles said, and residential staff will be on call for every center, 24 hours a day. For the academic year, RAs live on every floor of every building, and on-call staff works in the evenings. Sophomore Madi White, one of three RAs working in McNutt Quad for spring break, said RAs can sign up for 12 hour shifts and don’t have to work the entire break. “It gives us the flexibility to work, but also have a break ourselves,” White said. RAs receive a $80 stipend every two weeks during the academic year, but are paid $50 per break shift. Cailles advised students to make sure they keep their room doors locked and put the on-duty staff phone numbers, shown on signs throughout each dorm, in their cellphones.


Freshman Heather Ahmann sits next to her roommate’s pet fish in Collins LLC. Rather than stay on campus all of spring break, Ahmann plans to come back to campus from home to feed the fish.

Cailles said RAs typically respond to emergency calls in a few minutes, and staff in five to 10 minutes. She said students should not hesitate to call 911 or an emergency number if they feel unsafe. Freshman Gabriel Payne, who is staying on campus because the Bloomington community offers them more resources than their hometown, said they expect to feel safer than usual because less people, bikes and cars will be on the streets. Payne said they are more concerned with the money they might spend on food, given the

dining hall’s sparse openings. “Financially, I just have to be careful and make sure I don’t eat out too much,” Payne said. Union Street Market will open from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday, March 13, and Saturday, March 17, Rachel Noirot, a registered dietitian for RPS dining services, said in an email that Union Street Market was chosen for its variety of options and easy accessibility. The Wright Cafe and Convenience store was open on select days during winter break but was difficult for students to navigate SEE RPS, PAGE 6 & @idsnews

As students begin to pack up their belongings and head out for spring break, they sometimes forget one key step: locking the door behind them. Bloomington Police Department Capt. Steve Kellams said 31 percent of all residential burglaries reported so far in 2018 involved an unlocked door or window or no force being used. More than 49 percent of theft from vehicles reported in 2018 involved unlocked cars or no force being used. Kellams said it is especially important to lock up items to reduce the chance for crimes of opportunity so BPD can spend more of its time on organized theft. Crimes of opportunity include things like a person walking through an unlocked door to take something. “If we can eliminate all of that white noise, then we can really focus our intervention tactics on trying to stop people who are victimizing students in Bloomington,” he said. He said the department has spent years trying to get this message across to students. Though there were only nine residential burglaries reported to BPD during IU’s spring break in 2016 and six in 2017, Kellams credits these low numbers to efforts by BPD to increase patrols while students are gone. He also said the department works with apartment complexes to SEE THEFT, PAGE 6

Local schools discuss safety after Parkland By Nyssa Kruse | @NyssaKruse


Provost Lauren Robel holds an IU flag she said she always keeps with her. Robel spoke about her time in India for India Remixed, which is designed to support global learning, international cultural exchanges and IU ambassadorship.

Provost praises IU in State of the Campus Provost Robel discussed work IU has done to improve diversity, civic engagement and campus programming. By Peter Talbot | @petejtalbot

Holding a folded IU flag she had tucked in her folder, Provost Lauren Robel discussed the importance of IU’s positive global influence on people’s lives in her State of the Campus speech March 6. “Yes, I carry it with me at all times,” Robel said as she held the flag. Robel gave her address to a crowd of around 100 people at 3 p.m. Tuesday in Presidents Hall. Her speech was all praise for IU’s strides in diversity, civic engagement, programming and collaborations with surrounding communities. Last year, protesters advocating for a sanctuary campus interrupted Robel’s speech. Threats of arrest by the IU Police Department prompted them to leave. This year, one IUPD officer stood outside Presidents Hall before the speech began. No one protested this year’s speech. Robel said this year’s freshman class was the largest and most diverse IU has seen, mentioning a record number of African American and Latino students. According to the Office of Admissions, the class of 2021 is 23.6 percent people of color. Despite these strides, Robel said IU also confronts today’s challenges, which place obstacles in front of students and faculty. “We continue to share the moral imperative to address their battles with mental illness and sexual assault and harassment," Robel said. She also made mention of the greek system, saying while greek life is instrumental in forming lifelong friendships and philanthropic awareness, it also struggles with issues of

identity and safety. In civic engagement, Robel said she believes every student should leave IU with a commitment to engage with the democratic process. Robel mentioned the new polling stations to be placed in the Indiana Memorial Union in fall 2018. “I also believe that we should take every opportunity we can to beat Purdue,” Robel said, reminding the audience that IU will be participating in the Big Ten Voting Challenge. The competition will determine which school can get the most students to vote in the midterm elections.

“I also believe that we should take every opportunity we can to beat Purdue.” Lauren Robel, IU Provost

She also praised the newly established IU Corps, an initiative to connect and record service opportunities. Robel said between the spring of 2010 and the spring of 2018, students have logged more than 300,000 hours of community service through classes alone. She said IU Corps will help students find the right fit to get engaged in volunteer opportunities. Praising IU’s programming, Robel, wearing a yellow India Remixed button, said events such as the recent Holi festival, recognizing the Indian celebration of spring; Celest Fest, which celebrated the 2017 solar eclipse; and the upcoming festival and conference, Granfalloon, which will celebrate the life and legacy of Hoosier author Kurt Vonnegut, have fostered the spirit of community. Robel also spoke about

the positive influence the coming IU Health Regional Academic Health Center will have on campus. She said it would create better opportunities for every citizen in south-central Indiana as well as students, faculty and staff. "For the students who learn in those new programs and facilities, the results will be transformative," Robel said. "For those they will eventually serve, the results will be life altering." Recognizing IU’s commitment to rural communities, Robel said IU’s Center for Rural Engagement promises to open new frontiers in cooperating and collaborating with rural communities. It is a single point of contact for these communities to pursue their challenges in partnership with IU, Robel said. According to the Center for Rural Engagement's website, some of these challenges include creating more sustainable communities, and building healthier communities including responding to the opioid crisis, strengthening education and more. Robel closed her speech saying when the IU’s Bicentennial Strategic Plan was adopted, she wrote that IU owes its existence to the vision and support of the state of Indiana, the constitution of which declared that knowledge and learning are essential to the preservation of a free government. “Indiana made good on that promise in 1820 by laying the cornerstone of this very University and this very campus,” Robel said. "Since that time, IU Bloomington has fulfilled the promise of that vision and has extended its reach and Indiana’s connections to every corner of the globe.”

Building entry points, mental health resources and emergency protocols were among the topics discussed the night of March 5 during a Monroe County Community School Corporation safety forum put on in the wake of the Parkland, Florida, shooting. The event featured a panel with school administrators, law enforcement, educators and one student, who discussed current safety procedures and answered questions from the community. Superintendent Judith DeMuth also offered a clear stance at the forum against recent proposals by some, including President Trump, that schools should arm teachers. “Our staff members did not get into this profession to shoot students or shoot people,” DeMuth said. “We want teachers to teach kids. We need to have kids who feel they’re as safe as they can be.” DeMuth said the only armed employee in the district is the school resource officer, James Witmer, who moves between the campuses. District officials said repeatedly March 5 one of the most important ways to keep schools safe is to report anything suspicious or worrisome to administrators, teachers or law enforcement and encourage students to do the same. “It takes all of us to do this,” Demuth said. “Our best defense is not only our staff but our students.” Bloomington Police Department Sgt. Lucas Tate, who attended to explain how the schools work with law enforcement, encouraged people to report any and all concerns, no matter how little information an individual has or what time of day it is. Christopher Ciolli, director of building operations for MCCSC, spoke about the ways the district monitors and improves the physical facilities of the schools. He said a majority of schools have a two-door front entry that funnels individuals to a front office, where an employee can ask them their reason for visiting before allowing them entry through the second door. In schools without this feature, Ciolli said the dis-

trict is looking how to front entrances more secure. Bloomington High School South does not have a two-door entrance, but Principal Mark Fletcher said limiting the number of unlocked exterior doors is a focus of the school's safety plan. The school also has four unarmed security guards monitoring the school daily. Beyond physical safety, discussion turned to mental health support. The district employs counselors at the middle and high school level and social workers at all levels. Rebecca Rose, director of student services, said these people are all licensed mental health professionals. Social workers and counselors do meet students for individual counseling as needed, but the schools also work closely, Rose said, with community resources for students in need of extra support. Fletcher said although teachers may be the first ones who notice a student's mental or emotional problems, the teachers generally do not try to solve the problems themselves and instead pass that information along to the people most suited to deal with such issues. “We’re educators,” Fletcher said. “We’re not trained to handle those type of things as much as our social workers and law enforcement.” Another audience member asked about district use of new safety devices. Ciolli said the district has a process for reviewing such devices and has looked into door blocking devices. The district decided not to use them after consulting with the fire department and discussing possible negative consequences of device, which stops doors from being opened from the outside. If a door blocker was used in a classroom with young children, for example, and the adult in the room then became incapacitated, anyone else trying to help probably would not be able to enter the room. The blockers are also considered a fire code violation, Ciolli said. The forum’s topics of conversations went beyond only intruder or shooter concerns, touching on emergency weather protocols, social media, interpersonal relationships and bus safety.

Junior Elli Schank and senior Sarah Addison ride scooters through an obstacle course at “Race for More than Four.” The event was organized by Public Relations Student Society of America to raise awareness for childhood cancer treatment.

Scootering spreads child cancer awareness By Emily Isaacman @emilyisaacman

No breaking news played on the large television screens in the Franklin Hall commons the afternoon of March 6. In the atrium full of studying students, a scooter obstacle course covered the floor. The obstacle course was part of a student-run public relations campaign for With Purpose, a childhood-cancer nonprofit chosen as the client for a national public relations competition. “We wanted to make you feel like you’re a kid,” senior Sarah Addison said.

The five students representing the IU Beth Wood Chapter of Public Relations Student Society of America have been working on the campaign since October, as part of MSCH-J460: Bateman Competition. All teams participating in the national Bateman Case Study Competition were tasked with creating a public relations campaign to increase awareness of problems with childhood cancer treatments and promote the With Purpose brand. PRSSA will choose three finalists to present their campaigns in Charleston, South Carolina, in May.

The IU team entitled their campaign “Whyonlyfour,” alluding to the four treatments for childhood cancer approved by the Food and Drug Administration since 1980, and four percent of the National Cancer Institute’s budget spent on childhood cancer research. “We felt like that was the most jarring statistic,” junior Aspen Schopp said. The IU team used three different types of obstacles to represent the three major barriers to creating new cancer treatments. Money bags, made of pillowcases stuffed with newspaper, symbolized funding

deficiencies. School supplies scattered at the end of the course signified a lack of research motivation. Trash cans covered in orange and white construction paper served as prescription bottles, demonstrating the scarcity of treatments available. At age six, team member and IU senior Alexandra Davie was diagnosed with stage four Wilms tumor cancer, the most common kidney cancer in children. She said her survivor perspective has given the team an advantage. “I’ve been in the shoes of the kids they advocate for,”

Davie said. After completing the obstacle course, participants looked through virtual reality glasses to experience the perspective of a child with cancer. The team decided to produce virtual reality videos after IU junior Dustin Kenna, a Leukemia cancer survivor and Davie’s friend, told them people can’t understand what it’s like to be a child with cancer until a person experiences it. Based on that concept, the team designed two videos to offer a glimpse into the life of a child with cancer. One video shows the per-

spective of a kid playing on a playground while Kenna narrates the challenges of childhood cancer. The second video, shot on a 360 camera, places the viewer in a hospital room that displays facts about childhood cancer on the walls. “It’s a more immersive experience,” said IU junior Melissa Dvojacki, who helped shoot the virtual reality videos. Addison said talking to childhood cancer survivors and their families, combined with the virtual videos, humanized their campaign. “It helps make the statistics feel real,” Addison said.

IU-Bloomington center receives $10 million grant From IDS Reports

IU-Bloomington has received a $10 million grant through the IU Foundation from Lilly Endowment Inc. to fund the Center for Rural Engagement, according to an IU press release. The center, which was created to study and address societal challenges in rural communities, will use the grant to support regionally based initiatives to address opportunities and needs in 11 neighboring counties.

In the release, Provost Lauren Robel said the center reflects IU-Bloomington’s commitment to working to address issues in neighboring communities. “We look forward to the many opportunities ahead for our faculty, staff and students to strengthen these partnerships, forge new ones and promote IU as a force for good in the lives of our fellow Hoosiers,” Robel said in the release. Lilly Endowment awarded the IU Foundation a planning grant in

2015 to explore the idea of a rural center. During the last few years, IU developed the center from discussions with local residents, community leaders and more than 200 IU faculty, administrators and staff members. "The depth and breadth of the engagement of Indiana University’s faculty, administration and students in the center's efforts to improve the quality of life in communities throughout this region is most impressive," said Sara B. Cobb, Lilly

Endowment's vice president for education, in the release. The center will focus on the Southwest-Central Indiana region, according to the release. The goal is to improve the lives of Hoosier and help communities build upon opportunities and assets in their region to find solutions to problems. The center will work with community leaders and residents to create solutions to issues facing rural Indiana, initially focusing on health and wellness, sustainable communities and environ-

ments and arts and culture. Other focuses of the center will include educational attainment, entrepreneurship and economic and leadership development. The Center for Rural Engagement will also use work from the Sustaining Hoosier Communities initiative. The initiative developed community-identified projects in Lawrence County focusing on addiction issues to street and highway infrastructure. Bill Brown, lead of the Sustaining Hoosier Commu-

nities initiative, will serve as the executive director for the new center, according to the release. Brown said in the release that the center will be able to offer additional long-term engagement in the community. "The Sustaining Hoosier Communities program has demonstrated enthusiasm for collaboration from community partners and from faculty and students," Brown said. Laurel Demkovich

Starting struggles IU has had to overcome inconsistent starting pitching to start the 2018 season



Senior pitcher Brian Hobbie pitches against Cincinnati in IU’s home opener March 6 at Bart Kaufman Field. IU lost to Cincinnati, 8-3, falling to 9-3 on the season. By Cameron Drummond @cdrummond97

Starting pitching remains a sore spot for IU. Despite the team’s 9-3 start to the season, the Hoosiers have lacked reliable performances from their starters on the mound all season. IU’s 8-3 loss to Cincinnati on March 6 at Bart Kaufman Field was the latest example of a lackluster performance from a Hoosier starter. Sophomore starting pitcher Andrew Saalfrank lasted just two innings against the Bearcats while allowing three hits and three runs. Aside from IU’s two confirmed starting pitchers, juniors Jonathan Stiever and Pauly Milto, no other Hoosier pitcher has lasted five innings in a start. In comparison, Stiever, the Friday game starter, and Milto, the Saturday game starter, have each lasted at least 4.2 innings in each of their six combined starts. “I know our Friday and Saturday,” IU Coach Chris Lemonis said. “We’re still figuring out Sunday.” Although it wasn’t able to do so March 6, the IU bullpen has often made up for the lack of longevity from starting pitchers this season. Sophomore Cal Krueger has not allowed a run in six bullpen appearances this season. Freshman pitchers Austin Long and Nick Eaton have each started their college careers with three bullpen appearances each while allowing no earned runs. The depth and reliable nature of the bullpen has allowed Lemonis to plan for shorter starts when looking for a Sunday starter to join Stiever as the Friday starter and Milto as the Saturday starter. “With our bullpen, that Sunday is probably a four to five inning start,” Lemonis said. Lemonis has a variety of different pitchers at his disposal from the bullpen. Left-handed options in-

clude senior B.J. Sabol, who also hasn’t allowed a run in four appearances, along with Eaton. Sophomore Cameron Beauchamp and junior Tim Herrin are left-handed pitchers who have also been used as starters already this season, as has freshman Tommy Sommer. Among right-handed pitchers, senior Kade Kryzsko and junior utility player Matt Lloyd have established themselves as IU’s late-inning pitchers, although Kryzsko allowed two runs in the eighth inning against Cincinnati.

“We’ve been road warriors for the first three weeks, but we’re just trying to get back home and play good baseball.” Chris Lemonis, IU Coach


Sophomore infielder Matt Gorski rounds third base and heads home against Cincinnati on March 6 at Bart Kaufman Field. The Hoosiers failed to put more than three runs on the board against the Bearcats and losts its third game of the season.

“We have a lot of different pieces,” Lemonis said. “We’ve been able to match them up pretty good and put them in there.” With nine games remaining before IU travels to Iowa to begin Big Ten Conference play, Lemonis has time to find a third starter to accompany Stiever and Milto. All nine games prior to conference play will come at Bart Kaufman Field against nonconference opponents Pacific, Western Illinois, Northern Illinois and Wright State. Those four teams currently have a combined record of 14-30. The upcoming stretch will not only allow IU to remain at home after 11 straight games outside of the state, but it also gives Lemonis the freedom to toggle with starting pitching options. “We want wins,” Lemonis said. “We’ve been road warriors for the first three weeks, but we’re just trying to get back home and play good baseball.”


Cincinnati infielder Connor McVey attempts to steal second, but gets tagged out by IU sophomore second baseman Jeremy Houston. It was just a one-game series between the Hoosiers and the Bearcats on March 6 at Bart Kaufman Field.


It's about the process for IU after a 3-15 start to 2018 By Phillip Steinmetz @PhillipHoosier

It’s been a season full of growing pains for IU softball thus far. The 3-15 record looks ugly on paper, but taking a closer look on how the Hoosiers have been performing under first-year IU Coach Shonda Stanton, it’s easy to see why she’s excited to progress further into the season. “We know who we are and why we’re here,” Stanton said. “We ask them every day

if they’re strong enough for the journey, that’s what this is about. We’re focusing a lot on culture.” Production at the plate has been the Achilles heel for the Hoosiers up to this point. IU currently sits second in the Big Ten in strikeouts, with 109, and 12th in batting average. The Hoosiers have scored one run or fewer in 13 of 18 games. There have been times where IU has shown the ability to string hits together and put runners on base, but time and time again, it’s been an issue putting runs

on the board. The Hoosiers were only out-hit once in of five games when IU played March 2 through March 4, but still only came away with a single victory to show for it. All season, Stanton has said her team needs more quality at-bats and can’t overthink how they approach the plate. If IU hopes to compete with the gauntlet of the Big Ten, the bats are going to need to start producing. “It’s timely and clutch hitting,” Stanton said. “In a number of games that we’ve lost, outhit our opponent.

But it’s not about that — it’s not about the end result, the hit. It’s about the process and having productive at bats.”

“It’s about working ahead and eliminating free passes because you’ll see moments of greatness.” Shonda Stanton, IU Coach

Despite the lack of offensive production, IU has been able to rely on pitching to re-

main competitive in games. The Hoosiers lead the Big Ten in total batters struck out by a wide margin with 123. Junior pitcher Tara Trainer has been the true bright spot for the Hoosiers and has proven to be a reliable No. 1 starter. Her 16 strikeouts against Furman sits 10th all-time in IU history for a single game. Sophomores Josie Wood and Emily Goodin have both shown they can be trusted to go out and provide quality innings for the Hoosiers. Stanton threw Goodin for two starts, despite only

starting one other time this season due to being relied on as the main reliever. Despite the fewer starts, she still sits second in innings pitched for IU and has the lowest ERA among the staff with 2.01. “I think we’ve seen great things from all of them,” Stanton said. “It’s about working ahead and eliminating free passes because you’ll see moments of greatness.” Coming into the season, SEE SOFTBALL, PAGE 5

Hoosiers await the committee's decision By Dylan Wallace

67-54 | @Dwall_1

If the IU women’s basketball team has learned one thing about the selection committee from the past two years, it’s to never count on anything. In the 2015-16 season, IU finished the regular season at 20-10 and received a double-bye for the Big Ten Tournament in which they lost to Northwestern. However, their resume was good enough to earn an NCAA Tournament bid for the first time in 14 years. The Hoosiers would take advantage of their ninth seed and beat eighth-seeded Georgia by four to win its first NCAA Tournament game in 33 years. IU would eventually fall to first-seeded Notre Dame in the Round of 32. Fast forward a year later, IU found itself in a familiar situation — a 20-win regular season, a double-bye in the Big Ten Tournament and losing its first game of the conference tourney, this time to Purdue. That time, however, the Hoosiers were excluded from the Big Dance. Bring it back to the present and IU is once again on the bubble. In a season where the Hoosiers brought in five new freshmen — starting two — and only had ten eligible players on the roster, they finished with a 16-13 regular season record. Even though that record isn’t as good as the past two seasons, IU has still managed to put itself in the conversation to at least be considered. One of the keys the committee looks for in a team is the toughness of its nonconference schedule. IU’s non-conference opponents this year were tougher than years past.


IU women's basketball coach Teri Moren talks to the Hoosiers between plays. IU fell to Maryland, 67-54, during the Big Ten Tournament on Friday, March 2, in Indianapolis. IU now waits for the committee's decision March 12 on Selection Monday regarding its postseason future.

It featured Chattanooga, Saint Mary’s, then-No. 4 Louisville, Auburn, thenNo. 16 Missouri and Virginia. This created IU to have the eighth-hardest schedule in the regular season in all of the NCAA. The problem is IU lost to all these teams — some were close, and one went to overtime, while others were double-digit defeats. However, IU did pick up some solid non-conference wins. A two-point victory over a 21-8 Western Kentucky team, an eight-point victory over a 24-5 University of Alabama at Birmingham team and a four-point win against Yale, who is 15-12. All that led to the Hoosiers entering conference play with an overall record of 7-6.

The Big Ten, one of college basketball’s hardest conferences, began tough for IU as it dropped its first five of six games. The first two games were blowouts, but then the team started to become more competitive — losing at Penn State by just three, blowing out Purdue at home, losing by five on the road to thenNo. 23 Michigan and losing by four on the road to then-No. 14 Maryland. IU’s conference record was 1-6, and the season wasn’t looking bright, but things began to pick up for this young team. Again, there are five new freshmen, all adjusting to the collegiate level of play, but they are led by veteran seniors who are, no question, two of the best bas-

ketball players to come to Bloomington. Those two seniors didn’t want their final season to go down in ashes. Tyra Buss and Amanda Cahill took control Jan. 20 in East Lansing, Michigan, and sparked their team to ride an eight-game win streak to put them back in the conference race. IU, which was once 1-6 and 8-12, then became 9-6 and 16-12. The Hoosiers did lose their final game at Iowa, but they secured the seventh-best conference record in the Big Ten after sitting second to last one month prior. This gave them a one-game bye in the Big Ten Tournament. After exiting in its first game the past two years, IU took on Michigan State in this year’s tourney. The

Hoosiers went to four overtimes with the Spartans and won 111-109, playing in the longest game of Big Ten Tournament history. The next day, they played second-seeded Maryland and were even with the Terrapins most of the way until the end. Fatigue seemed to set in for IU, and they lost 67-54. Now, with uncertainty regarding its future, IU awaits the selection committee’s decision March 12. Recent bracketology has been released by ESPN’s Charlie Creme concluding the Big Ten Tournament. Creme has five of the Big Ten’s top six teams in the tournament — Ohio State, Maryland, Iowa, Minnesota and Michigan in that order. Nebraska, 21-10, sits

between Iowa and Minnesota and is among Creme’s first four out. His last four in include Minnesota, 23-8, and Rutgers, 20-12. Rutgers is ninth in the Big Ten standings and made it to the same spot in the conference tournament as IU. The Hoosiers also beat Rutgers in the regular season as well as Minnesota and Nebraska. Another team mentioned in Creme’s first four out is Purdue, 18-13, who IU beat twice. Out of those four teams, Rutgers and Minnesota have a higher RPI than IU, but Nebraska and Purdue don’t. Therefore, the predictions may match based on RPI, except for the fact that IU is not even a mention, not even in the next four out category. Through March 4 including the Big Ten Tournament, IU now has had the eleventh-hardest schedule in the NCAA. Only one Big Ten team is ahead, and it’s the Big Ten Tournament Champion Ohio State Buckeyes with the sixth-hardest. IU was also the hottest team in the Big Ten to end the season, winning nine of its last 11. Once again, the Hoosiers will sit in the IU locker room as teams get selected, hoping to hear their names called. The suspense will be dreadful, but IU Coach Teri Moren thinks her team has a case. “I do think we have an argument, there’s no question,” Moren said. “The criteria is they want you to go out and play people, and I know you got to beat people, but we have done that. We have gone out and structured our schedule to be difficult, and the strength of schedule is eight, which I think wis noteworthy.”

ONLINE AT IDSNEWS.COM: Last week’s loss against Rutgers in the Big Ten Tournament brought about a stark realization for IU that the Hoosiers’ season was likely finished. An NIT berth seemed reasonable for IU heading into the conference tournament, but adding a bad loss to the resume and finishing the season at 16-15 put a significant dent into the Hoosiers’ postseason hopes. IU Coach Archie Miller said in the immediate aftermath of his team’s loss he doubted an NIT bid would come his team’s way, and he added his group wouldn’t be participating in any postseason tournament worse than the NIT. With that said, the Indiana Daily Student is taking a look back at the season for IU men’s basketball, broken down by class.

it was known that Stanton was going to get her team to play aggressively on the bases due to her success at Marshall, ranking top 10 in the country in stolen bases from 2009 to 2017. IU is currently second in the Big Ten with 24 stolen bases, but her team also leads the conference at getting caught. Last season, IU only had 41 stolen bases. If the Hoosiers hope to remain competitive with the home

opening weekend just around the corner, base running will need to continue being a strength. “We just have that mentality of being a lion and wanting that next 60 feet,” senior outfielder Rebecca Blitz said. The Hoosiers have a major weekend coming up with a trip to Norman, Oklahoma. IU will face the likes of Illinois State, No. 18 South Carolina, and the two-time defending national champions, No. 5 Oklahoma. It will be the final road series that

IU will play before traveling home next weekend for the Hoosier Classic. The Oklahoma Tournament this weekend will be the toughest series of games thus far for the Hoosiers. But, if the offensive production picks up to the same level of play as pitching and base running, IU can make significant strides in the process. “It’s not about them, it’s about us going out there and getting better every pitch,” Stanton said. “That’s our focus this weekend.”

IU students Abel Duran, Michael Schmahl and Kurtis Greer ride their bikes around the track at Bill Armstrong Stadium. The IU Cycling Club has organized a home meet for March 10.


CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 The B tier on March 10 will be a 42-mile race and will begin at 1:05 p.m. The other tiers will start at different times, with the first one, the men’s C race, being at 10:30 a.m. The next day will be the criterium, which will be raced in the parking lot of Memorial Stadium. It will be a .8-mile loop, and instead of going for distance, riders will race for a specific amount of time. All the races range from 30 to 70 minutes and will begin at 8:30 a.m. “I’m really excited about it,” junior rider Erin Adair said. “We went to Kentucky last weekend, and a lot of people were like, ‘Oh, we’ll see you in Bloomington next weekend,’ which is a really cool feeling. I think it will draw a lot more people,

too.” The attention the cycling club gets is minimal due to the big focus on Little 500, but Adair said she hopes having events in town will draw more people to come watch and gain more attention. However the club doesn’t just want attention from local residents, but from more student riders as well, since most students in cycling club are all participants in Little 500. Greer said he thinks students limit themselves by just choosing to race in the Little 500. “I think a lot of people would enjoy it if they expanded their involvement in the sport,” Greer said. “I don’t see the point in training for an entire year just to have one day of racing. The way I see it, train all year and race as much as you can.”

Adair countered that by saying some may not want to join the club because they don’t want to risk any accidents and injuries so close to the Little 500, the ultimate event for the riders to train. No matter the viewpoint, Duran said he thinks the club is a great way to continue training, create friendships and compete at a sport you enjoy. It isn’t mandatory for riders to participate in every race the club signs up for, which allows students to be cautious for the races near April. The club’s ultimate goal is to get more attention and people to join, but an overarching goal is to make cycling a varsity sport at IU. IU competes against several schools that have cycling teams as varsity sports, such as Marian University and Lindenwood University. Greer said the trend

seems to be that the smaller schools feature cycling as a varsity sport, while bigger schools don’t. Both Greer and Duran said they understand revenue is a big part of creating a varsity team and know it’s about what you can provide for the school before what the school can provide for you. They brainstormed ideas such as lobbying alumni, but said they understand they are a ways away from turning the cycling club into something bigger. However, having the race in Bloomington this weekend isn’t hurting their cause. “That’s the dream,” Greer said about making cycling a varsity sport. “Hosting the event this weekend is definitely a huge step in that direction because it puts us on the map.”

make sure they have enough security during breaks. Only one theft from a building was reported to the IU Police Department over spring break 2017, but IUPD Capt. Craig Munroe said students should be mindful of leaving items such as bikes on campus. One theft and one burglary were reported to IUPD over spring break 2016, and three thefts were reported over spring break 2015. Munroe said students should take any valuables out of their dorm rooms over break. University staff will be checking rooms over break to ensure there aren’t any dangerous items such as lit candles in them, Munroe said, and will report any illegal items they see to IUPD. He said the dorms are pretty secure, but burglaries of fraternity and soror-

Cailles said the cost of hiring staff, opening select food and recreational facilities and providing utilities did not hinder RPS from deciding opening the dorms would be a good service for students. “The cost of those things really pales in comparison to the convenience we are offering students,” Cailles said. ity houses increase over long breaks. “The greek houses seem to be a target,” he said. BPD Lt. John Kovach said keeping valuables out of plain sight is a smart decision when heading into spring break. He said electronics such as gaming systems and TVs are large draws for theft. “Take it home, put it in a drawer,” he said. “Just don’t leave it out.” Munroe said students who live in houses should consider leaving some lights on in their homes and double-checking that windows are locked before they leave for break. Kovach recommended parking cars under streetlights or in other publicly visible areas and making sure valuables are not visible through windows. He said purses and cash should never be left in plain sight in a car. “Take a little extra effort and time to secure your stuff,” he said.

Photos celebrate women, tattoos By Kathleen Clark-Perez @KatPerezIN

Natasha Komoda, founder of the photo project Femmeography, said she photographs people with little makeup, simple fashion and natural lighting. “The whole goal was to capture the people I was photographing, not people with lots of makeup and perfectly styled clothing,” Komoda said. Komoda, who started Femmeography in 2013, said she supports body modification by celebrating people living their lives for who they are in any given moment. Komoda said whoever a person is in the moment is a reason to be celebrated. Shaina Bray, a model for Femmeography and the “Our Bodies, Our Choices” calendar, said she gets tattoos because they represent a piece of her and a moment in her life. "Tattoos and piercings are not harming anyone else and in some cases they are a form of healing for me," Bray said. Bray said she went through a marriage in which she was told what she could and could not do with her body. “It’s my body, and I can do what I want to,” Bray said. Komoda said she thinks people feel judged for many things including tattoos. “I think women are so policed with how we look," Komoda said. "It is not just body modification that

makes us feel stereotyped or judged and that goes back to the calendar shoot.” In January 2018, "Our Bodies, Our Choices," an exhibit featuring photos from a calendar of tattooed Bloomington women, was displayed at the Blueline Gallery.

The project was organized by Alicia Suarez, director of women's, gender and sexuality studies at DePauw University, and the photos were taken by Komoda. The proceeds of the calendar go to organizations supporting reproductive rights, including Planned

culture. At the beginning of Femmeography, Komoda was mainly taking photos of models, she said. Komoda said models were often terrified there was not going to be a makeup artist or hairstylist. "I thought it was so strange that these people who are the beauty standard of our culture were terrified of being photographed without makeup and without all that stuff that is put on top of them," Komoda said. She said her first subjects also seemed to be terrified of being themselves because they were so used to being directed and told exactly what to do and where to look. Music is an important part of Femmeography because during the shoot, subjects dance and move to their favorite music, Komoda said. “I am photographing them as they are moving and dancing in hopes to capture these in-between moments where they are in this place in their mind where they are free” Komoda said. “They are not being judged. They are not judging themselves. No one is judging them.” Komoda decided to start photographing non-models and found that it was the same experience. By the end of those first shoots models felt liberated and free, Komoda said. “People came out of the shoot feeling free and that they could be who they are,” Komoda said. “They are our bodies. We can do whatever we want with our bodies."

Tattoos can be more than just ink Cody Thompson is a junior in journalism.

I thought for a long time about my first tattoo. I tossed around a lot of ideas: a compass; a map; a quote from my favorite book, "The Sea Wolf" by Jack London. I toyed with each idea in my head, imagined it on my arm, my shoulder. None of them seemed worthy of putting in my skin forever. I knew I wanted something important to me. I ended up making a decision: a set of coordinates pointing to a house in the small town of Hoagland, Indiana. To anyone who types in those coordinates, it may not mean anything to them. Google Maps will pull up a small, rickety house that is slightly off-kilter because of an unsteady foundation. The roof of the front porch is sunken in from rain water. What they would not see is the amount of beautiful moments I spent there with my mother. It was a transformative time. I learned a lot about myself and my mother. For me, it is an incognito “mom” tattoo. It is for that reason I refuse to be ashamed of it. I refuse to try and hide it from potential employers at

an interview. Any place that doesn't hire someone because they are choosing to express something important is not a place I want to be. Now, it’s different if the tattoo is vulgar. If you have a naked woman on your arm or inappropriate words on your knuckles, maybe reconsider a job at Toys"R"Us. I love my tattoo because it means something to me. I plan on

giving similar importance to all my future tattoos. I have been tossing the idea of getting a dagger tattooed on my other arm as an homage to the years of Dungeons & Dragons I played with my cousins. But that is just my personal ideology and justification for putting a permanent image on my body. For many, it is a form of artistic expression or a way to highlight certain

personality traits. My girlfriend has 10 tattoos with plans for more. For her, a tattoo is like jewelry or clothes; it’s a way to express yourself. Most of her tattoos do not mean anything. She just thinks they are pretty, which I think is fantastic. But more along the lines of my ideology, one of my best friends has a tattoo I’ve always loved. It’s done in faded red and is a circle on the underside of his wrist. In the circle is a pig standing on its hind legs and carrying a medieval-looking banner that is blowing in the wind. It’s obscure, and I was always curious about its meaning. When I asked him about it, I was expecting a tale of a drunken college night that ended in a tattoo parlor. It turns out the tattoo was a sort of memorial he and four of his other friends received in honor of their fifth friend in the group who died. He originally had the tattoo so the living friends decided to honor him by replicating it. Suddenly, this ridiculous image of a pig standing on its hind legs became one of the most beautiful and touching things I had ever seen. It is not often that a form of art can do something like that.

IU works with Madame Walker By Kathleen Clark-Perez @KatPerezIN

Walking by the Madame Walker Theatre Center in Indianapolis, the 1927 terracotta designs of tragedy-comedy masks can be seen adorning the front facade of the historic building. According to IU and IUPUI press releases, the Center will pair up with the two IU branches to preserve, restore and create new programming for the Center with a $15 million grant from the Lilly Endowment. “One of my favorite things about the theater is the theater itself,” Anita Hardin, interim executive director of the Center, said in an interview. “The decor, the grandeur and how it is decorated according to what Madame Walker loved which was the African, Egyptian style.” According to the Madame Walker Theatre Center website, the Walker Theatre is one of the most remarkable remaining examples of Africaninspired Art Deco, an architectural style that dates back to the early 20th century. Hardin said she is excited about the possibility of having a new, reliable heating and cooling system and updating the technology in the


The Madame Walker Theatre Center in Indianapolis will partner with IU Bloomington and IU-Purdue University Indianapolis for a preservation and programming project at the center funded by a $15 million grant from the Lilly Endowment.

theater to bring more acts to the venue. She said she is excited about the partnership between IU and IUPUI because they both bring experience

and talent in designing buildings and programming to the table. “The Madame Walker Theatre Center is an iconic treasure of the Indianapo-

lis cultural community and a vital piece of our state’s and country’s history,” IU President Michael A. McRobbie said in a January IU press release.

McRobbie also said the campuses are pleased to collaborate with the center in working to revamp the historic site. He said IU looks forward

to jointly producing new programming that will promote the mission of education, empowerment, entertainment and the celebration of cultural diversity. According to the Center’s website, the center began in 1927 as the factory and headquarters for the Madame CJ Walker Hair Care and Beauty Products company. The center wasn’t just a factory though. It was a restaurant, drugstore, beauty salon and theater. Due to the segregation of Indianapolis at that time, the Walker Theatre served the black community as a safe and welcoming venue for entertainment, entrepreneurship, education, commerce and community building, according to the center’s website. “Encouraging cultural education, art, entertainment and entrepreneurship are part of Madam Walker’s legacy,” Hardin said. Hardin said the partnership with IU and IUPUI will extend the center’s reach to IU and IUPUI students. “The Walker center is located very close to the IUPUI campus,” Hardin said. “We have something great to offer them. With this partnership, we will have more to offer to the community.”

Andrea Gibson visits Buskirk-Chumley By Maura Johnson @Maujo997

The chatter of excited audience members fills the auditorium as an upbeat track list welcomes guests into the show. The stage is set for multiple performers, though only one will headline. Upon introduction by Danielle McClelland, the Buskirk-Chumley Theater’s executive director, the opening act took the stage. The trio of musicians and poets warmed up the stage before headliner Andrea Gibson performed. Gibson is one of the most celebrated poets in the field, according to the BuskirkChumley website. Gibson came to Bloomington to perform a selection of poems that covered a range of topics and emotions. Catering toward an audience of Hoosiers, Gibson started the show by cracking jokes about Indiana basketball. Besides the poet, the focal point on stage seemed to be the three glowing orbs hanging behind the poet that

changed color throughout the performance. At first glowing a deep red-pink, the orbs began to change with the progression of the show. Yellow The orbs burned yellow as Gibson addressed the crowd with a poem about catcalling. Gibson poetically discussed the onslaught of men and oppression faced by the words they deliver. Like this one, Gibson, who uses the pronoun 'they,' said every one of their earlier poems used to be a rant. Pink The orbs glowed pink as Gibson recited a poem about love. Specifically, a poem about being the own love of your life. As they gracefully glided through each line and phrase, one line stood out among the rest. “You are the best thing that has ever happened to you,” they said. Blue All three orbs were a bright shade of blue as Gibson dove

into a poem that addresses their experience following the election of President Trump. Gibson told the audience they tried to focus their attention on beauty following the election, but also further discussed white privilege they faced. “I only trust my skin when it is red with rage,” they said. Green The stage was shaded green as Gibson moved through a pain-ridden poem about those who died by suicide. Purple Purple set the tone for a poem about the Pulse nightclub massacre. Before beginning, Gibson took a moment to speak to the crowd. “If you feel too much you can’t talk," they said. The poet, having spoken to survivors of the massacre, went into a detailed reflection of the facts from that night, comparing tears to dried sweat from dancers, and describing police looking for any survivors by show of hands.


Andrea Gibson, an American poet and activist, shares poetry at the Buskirk Chumley Theater on Tuesday, March 6th. Gibson’s poetry touched on love, family, struggles with addiction and struggles the LGBT community faces on a daily basis. Gibson will next present in St. Louis as part of an ongoing world tour.

“Hardly anyone put their hand up,” they said. Red & Pink One of Gibson’s last poems, called “Fighting for Love,” was a love letter to their girlfriend. More specifically, a love poem about their arguments. The audience laughed along as Gibson recounted

arguments they’ve had, from past relationships to the editing of Gibson’s book. Light pink To finish off the night, Gibson brought their dog on stage, performing a love poem to the dog exploring the human condition. Addressing the hatred of mailmen and

vacuums, the kindness of the furry creature and the lesson that a good nap is the best therapy, Gibson stated they’ve never had a better teacher than their dog. The passion for this poem and each one before it is evident on stage, making it a captivating performance for the audience to take in.

Editors Josh Hoffer and Neeta Patwari


Indiana’s abortion bill hurts those seeking abortions A new Indiana law is prohibiting abortions sought due to diagnosed fetal genetic conditions. The Editorial Board believes this law violates the privacy and autonomy of those seeking abortions and acts as a step toward criminalizing abortion as a whole. NARAL Pro-choice America, a non-profit organization formerly known as the National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League, has claimed that reproductive rights access in Indiana is severely restricted, with 66 percent of Hoosier women living in counties without abortion clinics. Beside Indiana’s abortion bill is an attack against abortion rights prohibiting abortion based on genetic disabilities, this law, House Enrolled Act 1337, requires the identities of abortion providers be public, all individuals seeking abortions to receive an ultrasound within 18 hours of the procedure, and fetal remains must be cremated or buried by the facility in possession of the remains. Individual doctors would be liable for violations of this law. “By declaring unconstitutional a state law that would bar abortions based solely on race, sex or disability such as Down syndrome, a federal judge has cleared the path for genetic discrimination that once seemed like science fiction,” said Attorney General Curtis Hill to the Indianapolis Star. It is understandable people are disturbed by someone who may seek to terminate a pregnancy solely because the baby may have a genetic disability. The issue the Editorial Board takes with this law is that it

requires abortion recipients to have motivations for wanting an abortion the state has deemed to morally permissible. An individual should not be forced to explain ev-

By delineating which motivations are impermissible, Indiana ignores the many other permissible motivations that may concurrently exist.

health care system is not supportive enough for those with disabilities. If lawmakers truly cared about those with genetic disabilities,


ery detail behind their motivation. This information is very personal and intimate. Anyone should be able to terminate their pregnancy without having to explain why. Further, there can multiple factors in a person's decision to terminate a pregnancy, even in situations containing the issue of children with genetic disabilities.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, raising a child from birth to age 18 costs more than $240,000. The cost is even greater when the child has a genetic disability. These costs may not be sustainable for some individuals who become pregnant. This raises the separate problem that the current U.S.

they would offer support to those individuals currently living and seeking health care, rather than focusing on potential unborn children. Instead, Republican lawmakers proposed cuts to Medicaid, the main source supporting those people with disabilities in the first place.

Recently, Vice President Mike Pence said legal abortions in the United States could end “in our time.” With this context, it is not outrageous to assume that these Indiana abortion laws backed by Pence are just means to an end that criminalizes abortion as a whole. He also praised President Trump for being the “most prolife president in American history.” This is not necessarily true, as Trump said in 1999 that he was “very pro-choice”, but has since changed his mind. The Trump administration has been notoriously pro-life. Scott Lloyd, the director of the Department of Health and Human Services' Office of Refugee Resettlement, has denied seven abortion requests to unaccompanied minors, stating these minors have “no constitutional right to abortion.” Indiana's recent abortion legislation has unfortunately mirrored the direction the Trump Administration is taking. Criminalizing abortion fails to account for the societal issues that cause unintentional pregnancies in the first place, such as abstinence-only education and lack of contraceptive access. By supporting organizations or legislation that advance women's health and public knowledge, an abortionless society may be feasible. Bill 1337 and Trump Administration goals work against such an achievement. Above all else, individuals should be able to legally obtain abortions without having to share their personal motivations for doing so.



Mentorships are good for students

NASA’s budget affects research

Maddy Klein is a senior in English and comparative literature.

As the Council on Undergraduate Research has found, mentored research further develops students’ creativity and critical thinking and equips students with a level of intellectual independence that a traditional curriculum cannot. My own experience with a faculty mentor has shaped my idea of the research I want to conduct for my senior thesis, clarified my goals for graduate school and given me access to invaluable professional contacts and funding resources. Research shows this experience to be common among undergraduates. In a review by the Association of American Colleges and Universities, students who engaged in research with a mentor report increased opportunities for publication and scholarly connection. Many students say their mentor’s guidance positively influenced their work. These findings support what we might intuitively expect. Students who challenge themselves and receive support throughout those challenges benefit

from their experiences. Given what we know about the benefits of mentorship, it is important to consider how we can ensure these relationships form more often. For students, my best advice is to meet with professors during their office hours. This is in no way a novel suggestion, but I want to emphasize the difference that even small efforts can make. You don’t need to have any specific questions about course material. You don’t need to have a clear idea of a project you would like to start. All you need to do is show up. That said, increasing the frequency and quality of mentor relationships will involve just as much, if not more, effort on the part of the professors. The Institute for Higher Education Policy suggests early action as well as the implementation of formal mentorship programs as possible strategies for achieving this goal. Recruiting faculty who are willing to be assigned to incoming students and to work with them throughout their time in college ensures students are not left behind.

Outside of these formal programs, which may not exist at every university and cannot be expected to reach every student, there are smaller changes faculty at any institution can make. While many students might take interest in opportunities to work with professors outside of class, the likelihood that a student will actually pursue this opportunity depends on how professors present themselves. No matter how interesting their research might be, professors who do not seem open to students’ interests and inquiries run the risk of discouraging even the most outgoing students from taking initiative outside of class. It is important that professors understand mentorships benefit them as well, because recognition of this fact greatly increases their likelihood of taking on a mentee. I highly encourage you to seek out a faculty mentor. The relationship you develop will benefit both you and your professor, and you deserve every advantage this university can offer you.

At first glance, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration seemed to have a bleak future due to the budget restructuring proposed by the Trump administration and the cancellation of the Wide Field Infrared Survey Telescope. NASA'S total budget has in fact been increased. But there have been cuts within this budget. NASA's education budget is currently slated to be eliminated by 2019. It appears that Trump wants to do something big with NASA. However, he is sacrificing important aspects of the space program. WFIRST was supposed to be the successor of the Hubble Space Telescope and would have been a step forward for NASA’s mission to explore the exoplanets on the outskirts of our solar system. According to the National Academies’ Astro2010 decadal survey in 2010, it was projected to be the most groundbreaking project of the decade. I couldn't believe after nearly a decade of empha-

sis on how important the WFIRST project was that its funding was removed from the current proposal for the future budget. However, after learning that the budget is being refocused on projects such as a manned missions to Mars, I understand the motive more. It still saddens me, though, because President Trump’s expansion of the NASA budget in 2017 was one of the few moves during his campaign that I agree with, and I was hopeful this expansion would protect further WFIRST development. These budget changes imply that the Trump Administration prefers to focus the space budget toward crewed missions to the moon and Mars. Despite this, many astronomers and astrophysicists are displeased that the funds for some NASA projects, including WFIRST, have been eliminated. According to NASA, WFIRST was supposed to do the following: study dark energy, complete the exoplanet census and demonstrate technology for the characterization of exoplanets. Astronomers said they are saddened by this cut be-


It is time for the Supreme Court to rule on gun control Ethan Smith is a sophomore in political science and voice performance.

Weeks after the mass shooting that took place at a Florida high school, leaving 17 people dead, we have still done nothing to prevent this sort of thing from happening again. Granted, our government is faced with competing duties. The United States Constitution requires them to “insure domestic tranquility” by protecting us from violence, but also to protect “the right of the people to keep and bear arms.” The hardest part of this is that these two duties were not ones the Founding Fathers likely expected to conflict. We are supposed to have guns to protect ourselves, but now the sheer quantity and power of modern day firearms have crossed a line of harming us. The government needs to find some sort of middle

ground, obviously. The problem is that lawmakers are trying to reach this middle ground, and nothing is happening. Congress has brought up the issue time and time again and cannot move it forward. The president has been unclear about what he thinks on the issue and how he would like to cooperate with his lawmaking counterparts. However, there is one key participant that has been staying particularly silent — the U.S. Supreme Court. The Supreme Court has been handed opportunities to settle this issue with its all-ending trump card of interpreting the text of the Constitution. However, it has denied these opportunities over and over again. On Feb. 20 the Supreme Court refused to hear the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals case Silvester v. Becerra, a case regarding a California law requiring a

waiting period before purchasing a firearm. The Supreme Court has refused to provide a systematic ruling on the constitutionality of gun regulations for a decade. In 2008 the Supreme Court ruled in District of Columbia v. Heller that an individual does possess the right to own a gun, but limits to gun ownership could still exist. However, the justices did not explicitly state what those limitations were. Justice Antonin Scalia refused to give further details, saying “since this case represents this court’s first in-depth examination of the Second Amendment, one should not expect it to clarify the entire field.” There has been little court intervention in regard to gun control since — only McDonald v. Chicago in 2010, which ruled that the Second Amendment applies to the states through the 14th Amendment. Now is the perfect time

for the Court to stop ignoring cases brought forth to them and solidify a definition of the rights given to us through the Second Amendment. After the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012, the shooting in Las Vegas in 2017, and the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, it is time for the Supreme Court to make a clear decision on how U.S. gun control policy should proceed. The Supreme Court has had made definitive rulings on controversial topics before. In 2015, the Court ruled same-sex couples have the right to marry through interpretation of the 14th Amendment in Obergefell v. Hodges. In 1973 the Supreme Court ruled women have a right to obtain an abortion in Roe v. Wade by interpreting a privacy penumbra — an implicit group of rights derived from other explic-

itly stated rights — within the First, Third, Fourth and Fifth Amendments. If the Supreme Court has caused significant policy changes before, then it can do it with regards to gun control now. This is no longer a policy issue that needs to be debated in a gridlocked Congress or something else about which Trump needs to tweet. Rather, is an issue for the Supreme Court. It is time for the Court to start saving lives by following its designed decisionmaking path. As a first step toward gun control, the Supreme Court should hear a case regarding the Second Amendment and lay out a clear interpretation of the rights it does or does not provide. Until the Supreme Court does this, gun control will continue to be debated in Congress without results for years.

cause now the astronomers have to rely on outside research instead of conducting it in the United States. Megan Donahue, American Astronomical Society president-elect, even said the overall change in the astrophysics budget could cripple U.S. astronomy. Budget increases seen last year — such as the NASA exploration program, which was increased by $19 billion — should have been an indication for the direction of Trump’s plan with NASA. Sure, the WFIRST project is an innovation that would make the U.S. stand apart from the rest of the world, but we can’t physically see that project. We can just see the data. By sending people to Mars, we could incite a new era of the space race. But even this chance is not without a sacrifice to scientific progress. I do not fully agree with the budget restructuring, but I can understand it. I would prefer NASA’s budget to go where NASA wants it to go, but I am happy they have the money to remain operational.

Tattooed women face discrimination By Kathleen Clark-Perez @KatPerezIN

Shaina Bray, a model for the “Our Bodies, Our Choices” calendar of tattooed women, remembered feeling stigmatized during her divorce hearing for having tattoos and piercings. “My hair was dyed bright red, and I have tattoos and piercings," Bray said. "Someone who had met the judge told me to take the piercings out before going to the hearing.” Bray said the hearing was in Bedford, IN, and the judge was known to be traditional. She said she felt the judge decided she was troubled or lesser than her clean-cut ex-husband. Alicia Suarez, associate professor of sociology and director of women's, gender and sexuality studies at Depauw University, said after an interview at a college in North Carolina she was discriminated against for her tattoos. “The department chair told me that he wanted to offer me the position, but that he would need to talk to the Dean about my tattoos first, “ Suarez said. The chair of the department felt that the cultural climate at the college would require him to double check, Suarez said. She also said she did not take the job because

of this interaction. Bray said she remembered getting her first tattoo after moving out of a homeless shelter where she and her two kids were staying. “I got a lotus mandala because when we moved out, I felt so empowered and strong, “ Bray said. “The beautiful lotus flower grows from the mud, and I felt that way when we left the shelter.” Upon leaving the shelter, Bray said she signed up for college — something she had been told she could never do. “When I look at that tattoo, I remember what we went though, especially when I’m feeling frustrated or down,” Bray said. “I re-

member things could always be worse and that we got through being at the shelter.” Bray and Suarez both said they do not know how many tattoos they have because they blend into each other. Bray said her favorite is a phoenix tattoo on her leg. “I got it after I had a miscarriage," Bray said. "It is a reminder of that for me, since the phoenix represents rising from the ashes." The phoenix tattoo stretches from her hip to knee. Bray said it took three hours of work from the artist. Bray said she thinks body modification is becoming more acceptable to people, but people still judge, espe-

cially when they meet a person who is heavily tattooed. “There are too many stigmas behind all these things that are pretty much expressions,” Bray said. Bray said she hopes society changes because having tattoos does not mean you sell drugs, have given up on life, don’t want a professional job, or have been in prison. “I hope that, eventually, we get to a place where people are not judged based on tattoos or piercings or whatever they decide to do to change their bodies,” Bray said. “I hope it’s more acceptable, as with so many other things that I feel like need to be accepted.” Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Today is a 7 -- Home comforts draw you in.
